THE JACKSON ECONOMIST. VOL. VII. How to Be Popular With One’s Husband. Of course a man likes a woman pleasant and attractive, and most men will say it is a woman’s duty to be a good cook and house keeper, so it waß quite refreshing to read a little poem called ‘ She Can’t Cook,” wherein the poet de clares his wife cannot cook a roast and her brertd is heavy, but she is loving and kind, charming and fair, and that when “bachelorship, he forsook, ’twas to wed a sweet wife, a companion for life, it wasn’t to marry a cook.” That sounds very high and fine, but when a man is actually hungry be cause he could eat nothing at din ner, oris suffering all the tortures of indigestion through his wife’s lack of this one talent, she must need be a very superior woman to continue charming and attrrctive in her husband’s eyes for any length of time. Besides being a good housekeep er if she has the knack of produc ing artistic arrangements in her home they will make what will seem to the observing man a graceful setting for his jewel. A man likes bis home to be bright and cheery when he comes home at night; it comforts and rests him, and any thoughtful man re cognizes the love and care that makes his heaven. Nevertheless, the experience of a wise old lady led her to say that it was well to leave the home and its cares oc casionally for a week or a month at a time to teach the oneß behind your value. Keep Sweet-Tempered. While you are trying to do so much be very careful not to over** work and make yourself ill-natur ed and fretful. Elaborate cooking n not always good cooking, and your house may be kept neat and pretty without beirg too particu lar; if your strength is slender you must keep yourself compenioua ble; be ready to talk over any thing that interests him and laugh at his jokes, That last is an important item, for nothing puts a man in such a good humor with himself and at peace with his wife as for her to appreciate his wit and cleverness He will like to have [you appear well in society, and if you do. how proud he will be. One can dress well without being extravagant, and comply gracefully when a&ked to sing, play or read, or do what ever is in one’s reportoire of ac complishments.

There are few qualities a man admires more in a women than her willingness to “make up” alter a difficulty” without an apology from him. He knows very well when he is wrong, and he appre ciates the greatness of a nature tnat can overlook his mistakes without making him admit thme, and loves her for an apology I would only result on in stubborn- WINDER, JACKSON COUNTY, GEORGIA, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1599. ness and dislike oil his part'. A man loves to have* his wife have a good opinion of him and his ways, but he does not care to have her too meek, He likes her to show' some spirit if she is not * .

You may be much wiser than he, hut he must never find it oui. I beiieve it is a woman’s character istic to love details, but busy men rarely have time to ..enter into them and do not like to he bother ed with them. They think it is making too much of trifles; so if you have a story to teJl make it short by skipping the unimportant parts. Never Break Your Word. It is not well to make many promises, but the few you do make should be kept to the letter. Al though a man enjoys being on a pedestal it is his salvation to se cretly believe that his wife is much better than himself, and the thought spurs him to greater en deavor that he may not lose his high place in her regard. Men seldom take time to culti vate much poetry or sentiment, but they admire it in women. A woman who is all practical and hard common sense, with no co quettish ways (I do not mean flirty), no gift fcr seeing the hid den poetry in her surroundings is not so apt to keep the husband or lov^r.

Watson has turned his attention from politcs to history, and the result of his labors in the field of literature is announced for immediate publi cation by the Macmillan Company, New York. The celebrated Pop ulist has written a history of the French people from the settle ment of the Gauls to the consulate of Napoleon Bonaparte, and the author’s sympathy with popular tendencies will doubtless tend to produce a book at least bold & uu convential/ His preface declares that one of the purposes of the work is" to illustrate once more the blighting effects of super stition. ignorace, blind obedience, unjust laws, confiscation under the disguise of unequal taxes and a systematic plunder year by year or the weaker classes by the stronger.” The history is to be called 1 ' The Story of France,” and will be completed in two volpmes. —Gainesville Eagle. An English woman who has lived many years in China says the Empress Dowager has some skill as a painter, She is fond of wrest ling, and frequently indulges in this rather virile form of exercise. She is well read, is fond of Europ ean music, and has some skill as a pianist. She is said both by her friends and enemies to be without any sense of fear, —Ex. Newspaper Hints. Lawyers and doctors as a rule get more advertising than auyoth er class, pay less for it, and expect more. Newspapers have to mention the homely girl as being lovely and charming, for an editor fears a wreath. An officer who represents the people in pushing offenders of the law, should not be a high roller and play the roll of Indian in a bar room. With a certain class in this day and time, people who lead moral and exemplary lives are condemn ed for sogdoing. A doctor whose “Code of Eth ics” prohibits him from inserting a professional card in a newspaper should not importune the reporter to mention his connection with cases in news items. It is exceedingly bad taste for one who gambles to undertake to criticise other people who gamble. Such people are not only gamb lers, but hypocrites also. Politicians, who spend their time in roasting newspapers, should not think it strange, for a paper to give them a dose of their own medicine about election time. When you quit subscribing for your home paper, don’t think it will quit business. Everytime a paper loses one of that class, an other comes from one cf the oth er papers. A sensible man does not expect a newspaper to be in line with him on every question. There is no two people who think alike on every subject. If some were as quick to rush to the editor to tell good deeds, the editor would have a better opinion of mankind. Because one unpleasant item gets into the paper, that is no reas m why you should overlook the hundred pleasant ones. Don’t expect a newspaper to 1 e chuck full of news every issue, the reporter cannot make the people cut, shoot, fight, die or have acci dents, at will. Reporters often wish f'W such things, hut get left, Don’t carry your family troubles to the editor. He knows too much already and when it come 9 to air ing your troubles, there are plenty of people who will freely attend to the matter without asking. When you subscribe for a pa per the publisher only agrees to furnish you a copy of your paper. You have no more right to dictate its policy, than you have to dictate the policy of a mercantile estab lishment when you buy goods.— Ex. Win. A. Poyntor the new popu list governor of Nebraska among many good things in his inaugural on the sth inst. said ’’The great question of transportation and communication among the peo’ole cannot be definitely settled by state legislative enactments. The var ied interests of the several state in the union are too closely linked ib the bonds of commercial union for the states independently to prop erly adjust the great questions ar ising from transportation and in tercommunication among the peo ple. The natioal government it self must own and operate the highways of transportation and the electric means ot communication as it now docs the great postal sys tem, inthe interest of all the citi of our great common country. The Political Outlook. To the casual observer, reform politics never appeared to be in a move chaotic condition than at the present time, but to the close and careful student of political prob lems there was never before so much to inspire hope and confi dence in ultimate success, i The breaking aw'ay from erron eons partisan methods is evidence of the growth ot a sentiment which will mark a new' epoch in our po litical history, and not only of the United States, but of the entire world. It has certainly been demonstrat ed to the satisfaction of every thoughtful voter in the United States that an attempted coalition of different political organizations, to secure for partisan leaders the spoils of office, is an ignominious failure so far as reform is concern ed, and it would seem that no one, with the rnsults of recent elections in view, could for a moment argue 111 favor of further political action on this basis. The better class *of voters, who have allied themselves with re form movements, have done so with a sense of such unselfish in terest in the public welfare, that the personal ambitions of self-seek ing leaders awakens -a feeling of intense disgust. This fact is becoming more and more manifest, and the last elec tion proves it more plainly than would any amount of argument. The vote of 1808 did not show republican gains; it merely showed that where a 'coalition of demo crats and populists was attempted, the voters stayed away from the polls and usually left an easy vic tory for the opposition. All this is leading to better government and more perfect organization on abasiswhicti will mean genuine reform.—National Review. Abe Lincoln. The following sayings of Lincoln were printed in an Eastern pa per : We can not escape history. Revolutionzie through the ballot box, Let none falter who thinks he is right. It is no pleasure to me to tri umph over onyone, I do not impugn the motives of anyone opposed to me. Come what will I will keep my faith with friends and foe. I have not willingly planted a thorn in any mans bosom. Suspicion and jealousy never did help any man in any situation All that I am, all that I hope to be, I owe to my angel mother. There is no grievance that i3 a tit object of redress by mob law. This country, with its institu tions belongs to the people who inhabit it. God must like common people, or ne would not have made so many of them. For thirty years I have been a temperence man and I am too old to change. This government must be pre served in spite of the acts of any man or set of mon, Gold is good in its place; tut living, brave, and patriotic mon are better than gold. Stand with anybody that stands right. Stand with him while he is right, and part with him when lie goes wrong. Let us have faith that right makes might; and m that faith let us to the end dare to do our duty as we understand it The purposss of the almighty tire perfect and must prevail, though w’e erring mortals may fail to perceive them in advance. Housekeepers Should Be Methodiacl. Housekeepers often waste their energy and make their lives thor oughly uncomfortable by neglect ing to plan out the work that lies before the-”. The good housekeep er looks forward, ana before retir ing to bed at night she has arrang ed her plan of campaign for the following day* and when the time comes she carries it out methodi cally. The poor housewife, on the contrary,exercises no forethought, and does not trouble about any thing that has to be dono until the moment comes tor doing it. The conaequouce of this mental indo lence is a lamentable loss of peace •and comfort in the house, and a perpetual hurry to overtake time, which could easily have bet n saved by a little careful planning. Another very common mistake of housewives is to over estimate their strength. The question of economy is never more of greater importance than when applied to our energy anil powers of endur ance. It is no good for us to prac tice the most rigid economies, if, at the same time, we overtax our strength. Some women with more energy and ambition than prud ence will crowd into one day the work that ought to occupy two. You may perhaps feel inclined to admire their powers of dispatch, but probably if you called the day following you would rather lament their want of discretion. Almost invariably you would find them tired and exhausted and very like ly frettul and peevish, a source of discomfort to themselvee and to their households. There is no economy in this sort of energy, for the woik of one day, if spread over two, could have been performed more easily, and without detriment to health and spirits.—Ex. A man was traveling over an Alpine pass. He went over the glaciers, sinking in the snow Btep by step, upward, until he was a weary. High on the summit of the pass a desire to sleep overcame him. He could hardly put one foot before another, Just as he was almost sinking down into the sleep which would have proved of death to him. he stuck his foot an obstacle which proved to be the body of a traveler which had pro ceeded him. He bent down found that the heart had not ceasevl to beat, and began at once to rub the the frozen limbs, and do his best to reanimate the body. In his ef forts he was successful. He saved yie man’s life; and, in the effort, he banished his own desire to sleep, and so saved his ow r n life in saving another. —Christiad Lead er.
