A London housewife claimed ta court that her huaband kept a diary of her faults and read them to her at the ejid of every week. The only difference between him and a lot of other husbands and wives Is that he was Just * little more methodical. But the wife or husband who keeps a mental list of a mate'.? faults and bring] them up In the middle of every quarrel I* really just as bad. • The only way for husbands and wives to get along for any lencth of time Is to wipe the slat* clean after every misunderstanding, hurt, or quarrel. That way they face only one grievance at a time.'But let either one keep a mental list of all the wrongs done by the other, and each quarrel or disagreement becomes a rehash of all that has gone wrong before. Places Strain on Marriage That is Just too much for a marriage to stand. John can probably take being told he has been a'heel In one particular Incident. But let his wife remind him that It Isn't the first time he has let her down, and there Is real trouble. Mary may be able to take one criticism at a time—but let her husband remind her that she has other faults, too, and start to prove it—and that is real trouble. It sounds downright silly when this business of keeping track of faults Is done so systematically that It is set down In a diary and read off at the end of every, week. But it is just as silly when It-Is done by keeping them In mind and dragging them out whenever a new difficulty arises. A clean slate after every quarrel ought to be fundamental rule In every marriage. "BA A A-AH!" IS FOR BURGLARS 1' vou're thinking ol installing a burglar alarm, this might be your answer.
