A WOMAN'S WAIL. Since Eve felt discontented with her position in life without the possession of an apple, many ladies have never been able to discover the secret of happiness. For example, a respectably-dressed woman complained to Mr Plowden, the magistrate of the South-Western Division of the Metropolis, that her husband absented himself from home—weut out to his club, took walks alone, and such-like. Well," remarked his Worship, "a man is not absolutely tied to his wife's apron-strings." When he is at home he uses bad language," continued the applicant. Now what on earth could the wife of a man who behaves himself like that want more than that he should stay away ? Yet, in- stead of fueling content, she goes complaining to the magistrate. Mr Plowden merely remarked that it showed very bad manners to use bad language but he could not interfere unless the husband refused to support her. Of that there was no allegation.
