THE MODEL WIFE.-CHAPTER I.

By J. H. POWELL.

She who ne'er answers till a husband cools,
Or, if she rules him, never shows the rules;
Charms by accepting, by submitting sways,
Yet has her Humour most, when she obeys.

POPE. It were comparatively an easy task for the true artist to delineate on canvass the portraiture of a model woman-one whose exterior formation should bespeak perfectability. He would only need to make a study of the most perfect types in life, and by a combination of outward excellenciés infuse his art with the visible beauties of the many beautiful figures present to his eye. Here his study halts. Here he is bounded. He succeeds in painting a model of beauty whose life-likeness and harmonious pencil-touchings together strike the gazer with admiration. But the inner, inestimable faculties of the soul are beyond his reach. The painted model, unlike an actual living one, is simply a combination of colours thrown into light and shade. It belongs only to the realm of Art, having no connection, save in its chemical affinities, with the world of Fact. The painted model may be an acquisition to the student and a treasure to the museum, invaluable in its apparent perfectability; but it is, after all, only a type of high imitative Art-useful to a few and absolutely useless to many.

Man's true study is human nature; he should watch it under all its peculiar phases of strife and peace, discord and concord, temptation and triumph. If he would elevate his kind, he must place up models, not sculptured or painted ones merely, but living, acting, suffering ones. all imitative beings—our vices and virtues alike develope in our souls from imitation. Hence the necessity of surrounding mankind with virtuous models, that character may be grafted in right principles.
