In any and all ot the following si tuitions It's the better part of wisdom for a husband to agree with his wife. Instead Of expressing his own ideas. . One Is when she models a new dress or hat she bought on sale and cant return. If he says he doesn't like it or douses, her enthusiasm with faint praise, then his wife is never going to want to wear it and his money has been wasted. Another Is when she points out some flaw In a woman who is getting more than her share of masculine attention. This Is no time to remark: "I don't see why nil of you women have it in for her, or act unconvinced by criticism. Agree without reservatiQns. When she has a 'grievance against a third person Is no time to strike a judicial attitude and open-mlndedly see the other person's point of view. At this mo-i ment the only point of view your1 wife wants you to see is her own outraged one. Let Her Tell Owa Story Or take this common situation. She Is leaving out part of a story in order to make It sound a little more impressive. This is not the time to jump in with, ''Why don't you tell the whole story ?" or "That's not the way I remember It." - , V,"- , When she spends the day shifting furniture around and says expectantly, "Don't you think it looks better this way?" is typical. A man's natural reaction is always. "What was wrong with. the way it was?' But that is mighty exasperating to a woman. The payoff is when you come home and find she has had her crowing glory chopped off. It may look like thunder, but if she Is making even a pretense at liking It the "new way," don't let her down. ' It's too late now to tell' her how much better you liked It long, f Hospital Is Mrs. M. BloomingdaSe who Is seriously 111.
