* Ah! the true rule is-a true wife in her husband's house is his servant; it is in
his heart that she is queen. Whatever of the best he can conceive, it is her
part to be: whatever of the highest he can hope, it is hers to promise;

all that is dark in him she must purge into purity; all that is fail-

ing in him she must strengthen into truth; from her, through
all the world's clamor, he must win his praise; in her,
through all the world's warfare, he must find his
peace."-JOHN Ruskin.
