Ages of Marriage.
Better than a fortune teller's predictions
is the table recently prepared by a statis
tician by which onp can foretell the prob.:r
able age of one's future hdlpme'etthat. is
to say, he has tabulated the age -at whch
men at various 6tagcs in their life prefer
their wives to be! v' Young" men of .18 and
19 years, it scorn's, generally seleetU; wives
of their own - ago, but with increasing
years comes wisdom, and at 20 p man pre
fers a woman of from 21 to 24 years. 5.
indeed seems to be a very desirable age foi
an unmarried woman,' for it remains the
favorite for the man in - search of a wife
until he has passed his twenty -ninth year.
At 30 he likes best the women who ar
anywhere " from : five - years to one yeaiJ
younger than - himself, and he is cpnstani
in this preference up to his fortieth year.
Then he Is willing ; thai , she shall be, as
much as ten' years younger than himself
but will not have her if she be his equal in
years, an opinion which he holds for half a
decade. At from 45 to 60 he looks for less
disparity, preferring women from 40 to 45,
and in the next five years he has the same
choice. Thereafter he prefers a woman ten
years younger than blmself.--San. an
