Will Be Free From the Burden of
Carrying a Pirate Nation
Professor Forester, in a reply lo

is by being carried upon the back of
the Hriiish world empire: that we

man, Allien Bnllin wrote; "I realize
as never before that all tlle increase
in our wealth, all the success which
attended our enterprise in tlio year
before the war, was owinr_ lo our intercourse with the Hriiish empire."
'lhe Hriiish have assumed a tremendous load in this war, but one compensation, al any rale, will be thai

Mantle, an estimable lady living at

"What we understand today by

territories and such naval bases that
at the outbreak of a war we should

interpolated at this point. No doubl
there were more cheers when this
tragic comedian denounced as a traitor any German who would consent
to relinquishing lhc coast of Belgium, or the German ambition to
hold the northern coast of France.

Interesting Anecdotes of Happenings
in the War Zone
Major Grayson Murphy, in his description of Red Cross work at the
luncheon of the members' council of
the Merchants Association in the
ballroom of tho Hotel Astor, in New
told several interesting anecdotes-.
"Col. Boiling, who was in charge
of part of the development oi our
air service," Major Murphy said,
"told me he asked an aviator what
he had been doing. This fellow said:
T have been dropping spies.' Dropping spies?   What do you mean?
"'Well,' he saiel, 'at night I ily
over the German lines and in the
darkness I drop these, fellows from
airplanes with parachutes, anel then
they concentrate, and after they have
gathered information at a certain
point we send out airplanes and get
them up again.'
" 'Good heaven,' Boiling said, 'do
you mean to say you just let Ihem
drop in the dark���they might light
on the kaiser or anybody else.' He
answered 'yes.' Boiling then asked:
'Where do you carry them?'
"Hc saiel: 'Wc carry them in the
lower plane. There is a little wooden scat under the plane with a rope
attached to it, anel when we get to
lhc right place wc pull the rope and
down they go.' Then he said: 'Yon
know, it's an extraordinary thing
tiie way at lhc last thc beggars try
to hold on.'"
Major Murphy saiel further that a
Red Cross man at a little dinner in
France which he and other officers
attended, told an anecdote of the
"inking of the Arabic, especially regarding the behavior of her captain.
He said that the captain of the Arabic had told him that as the ship
was sinking���the captain stayed on
board and went down with her, but
was saved afterward���that right up
io the end when she went down,
every time he rang the bell to the
engine room he got tllis answer: 'We
fellows are in the engine room and
every time word comes to us from
lhe lop we will give lhe answer uniil
lhe ship goes down.' "
Major Murphy lold of bis experience in France iu an effort to gel an
official outfitted. He said the merest
details were lacking, and explained
"1 tried to gel a push hulton. I
waited three weeks for my push button, and when it came, I think il had
Conic from lhe palace at Versailles.
"It was a great, beautiful brass
thing with carving on it, und I looked at it ami then I found il would
not ring. The only way I could gel
my secretary was hy throwing the

came in and picked it up and put
it back on my desk. That is no exaggeration.''

With a Raidii:g Party
Inside Reasons of Trench Raid   and
Some Methods
The papers arc fail of accounts of
trench raids soldiers in France have
participated in. Vet there are very
few people who know -,\h.u ... treneir
raid is or how il is executed. Here is
a description of onc by Capl. K. W.
Siiinnie, in a United States newspaper. Captain Slminie joined thc
Canadian army in 1914, He was
wounded three times���-onco at Som-
me���and was sent to America to lake
charge oi recruiting.
"Thc main purpose of a trench
raid," sai.l Captain Sinimic, "is lo secure prisoners from whom we can
obtain information as to the strength
and the numbers of ihe regiments opposing us. A raid is accomplished
under cover of night. The raiding
parly usually consists of four sections of len or twelve men, cadi in
command of a lieutenant,
"Hi fore any oi lhe men    dare    lo
venture forth under battle conditions
liny are schooled rigidly behind lhc
lines in an exact knowledge nf ihe
outlay of lhe land. From pictures
aviators have, taken, the German
trenches are reconstructed and lhe
men practice jumping into them from
all angles so tbat when llie crucial
moment coiufi they will fight with
the confidence that knowledge of
iheir surroundings give,
"When everything is iu readiness,
lhc men's faces and bayonets are
blackened, This is lo prevent any
light reflecting from them and also
as a means of recognition. One man
knows that his black-faced neighbor
is a friend and not a foe.
"The sections go out, over the parapet one at a lime, llirougli the lanes
in llieir own barb wire that hav"
been cut for them. Following their
lieutenant they walk into No Man's
Land crouching, preparing to fall flat
or remain motionless when a star-
shell is shot up near them. It is only
through absolute immobility that
one can escape detection in llu: burning white light of a star shell.
"The Germans usually discover us
before wc reach llieir wires. Our
bombers then throw grenades inlo
the. German trench and wc all fall
Hat and wait for them to explode.
One of the sections has brought
along stiles painted the color of lhe
earth. These are: thrown ovcr the
German wire and the men run over
them and jump into the trench right
on top of Fritz.
"The four sections all have, different deities to perform. The leading
section goes up the trench about
fifty or seventy-five yards and puts
in a block of barbed wire to prevent
re-enforcements from coming up.
The next section goes down the
communicating trenches .and performs the same operation. The third
section bombs the. Germans from
their dugouts. The other section's
business is to look out for the salvage of captured machine guns and
other arms. It takes care of lhc
prisoners that must be taken back.
It also sees that every wounded German is killed. This s'ounds very brutal, but it is an absolute necessity.
When so few men arc trying to
stand off a battalion of the enemy
lhcy cannot afford to bc hampered
with wounded men. Unless the Germans are badly wounded���in which
case we do not molest them���they
will fire on our men and prevent our
raid being successful.
"We try to take some prisoners
back with us, but if this is not possible wc cut off their shoulder straps
with lhc number of their regiments
on ihem. In this way our commanding officers can tell what kind of
troops arc opposing us. A successful
raid demoralizes the enemy and gives
our men a dceided advantage if they
desire to attack."

How Germans
Treat Prisoners
Italian Soldier   Gives   Some   Facts
From Personal Experience
An Italian soldier belonging to a
machine gun corps, who escaped the
hands of lhe Germans in llic forced
retreat from the Carso, writes as follows  to a friend in Canada:
1  have  learned  that a  large  mini-!
ber oi the Italian prisoners taken by ,
the enemy were at once set to work I
at  lhc  front,  so  that  tlicy  had     lo
fight against their   own    comrades,
and were exposed  to  their lire.    At
the present moment, instead of being,
sent to concentration    camps,    ihey
are   being   employed   on     defence
works, which the enemy, fearing   a
powerful attack by the allied forces,
are throwing up in great haste   and
fear.    It has ronie to the knowledge
of the  secretary of    national    assistance lhat the German military commander of Udine, soon after thc province was occupied by the enemy, issued the following proclamation:
(1) Within six hours, the inhabitants must surrender all the arms in
their possession to the commander,
at the different places indicated by
(2) Within six hours lhcy must
likewise bring all the food they
(3) Every one must register his
name at these places, and each day
at 11 o'clock, present himself, when
hc will receive a ticket for food for
thc day.
(4) All men, women, and children
hove  15 years of age arc    obliged
to work in lhe fields every day, iil-
hiding Sundays, from -I a.m. till R
p.m., but will be given half an hour's
st in the morning, one hour and a
half at midday, and half an hour in
the afternoon.
(5) Men who hedge at their work
will hc superintended by a German
official, and when the agricultural I
work is over, will bc imprisoned for
six months, and every third day be
fed on  bread and  waicr.
(6) Women who hedge will he
taken out of Italy and forccel to
work. When thc work is ovcr tlicy
will be imprisoned lor six months.
(7) Children who hedge will bc
beaten with a stick.
(8) The commander reserves to
himself the right to punish all lazy
workmen by giving them 20 strokes
with a stick.
"1 havc two more facts to give.
The Germans havo systematically
bombed defenceless villages throughout Vcnctia, in order to terrorize the
inhabitants, many of whom���women
and children���have been killed. Sig-
nor Guidica, a Venetian merchant,
assures us that at Zcnsoii on the
Piave, where the enemy attempted to
cross thc river, tlicy forced women
and children to go in fronl, screened
ichind whom, they fired on Italian
troops. In heating thc enemy back
the lives of these helpless ones were
sacrificed. To add Indignity to
cruelty the Germans have appointed
a Turk to he governor of Fcitrc!
"The kaiser's ambition is to rival
Attila, after whom he has named on.r
of his sons, but when in the fifth century he devaslated this same region,
hc was not guilty of such barbarities.
Attila was a noble savage, not a degenerate moral outcast like the
kaiser and his war lords. No wonder that the Italian press should express iis amazement that there
should slill he found in England men
who would grasp in peace and friendship the hands of these reprobates,
dripping with the blood of innocent
women and children."
Revolution Impossible in Germany
For sonic months there has been
a good deal of speculation iu the
English press on tho possibility of
revolution, antl on the outlook for
responsible parliamentary government, in Germany. Only a combination of military defeat and starvation seems to me likely to cause a
violent upheaval that would likely
affect the foundation of the political
structure. Every man and woman
arc so fitted Into the German system
that it can collapse only as a whole.
IIerr Scheidemann, the leader of the
majority Socialists, whose recent utterances havc evoked expressions of
strong disapproval from non-German
Socialists everywhere, said practically the same thing in July, 1917: "The
destruction of thc Prussian military
machine means our dcsl ruction as
well."���A. D, McLaren in The Atlantic Monthly.

It is now close upon a century
and a half since, as the outcome of
the America,i War of Independence,
the English-speaking world was divided into two groups. During the
last onc hundred years these two
groups, the British empire and thc
United Stales, have lived on friendly
terms with never a hustib: shoi fired
between them, And during this
period the old feelings of bitterness,
the suspicions of each other, the
jealousies, have gradua ly died
away and disappeared.
And now, says tlle Regina Leader,
a United Stales congressman, returned from the European battlefields, sets the Great World War as
one to bc ended and wuii by the
united efforts of the English-speaking nations. France, he says, has
done as much a.s she is able���and
bow gloriously, wc all know���and it
remains for thc Britisii empire and
tiie United States to -ustr-.iu the burden and to crush the despotism.
The view is thc true one, not only
in a military s,nse, but in the larger
economic, political and humanitarian
sense. The ultimate objective at
which Germany launches lur power-
is not France, or Russia, but ih-*
subjugation of thc English-speaking
world and the substitution of a Teutonic univ. rsal power. The "Hymn
of Hate," correctly voices the German aspiration:
French and Russian, they matter not.

occd to scrutinize carefully all exemptions --ranted to date
2 those which have been granted on false or insufficient
that are well founded.
With this object in view the various registrars under the Military Service
Act have been instructed to issue a series of questionnaires to exempted men.
These questionnaires must be filled up correct'y and returned promptly under
penalty of forfeiture of exemption for failure to do so.
Exempted Men Who Slavs Changed Address
It Is therefore important in their own interest that all exempted men who
have changed their address since their exemption was granted and who have
not already notified the Registrar of such change should notify him at once.
Under the Regulations it is the duty of exempted men to keep the Registrar
advised of any change of address, and failure to receive the questionnaire
by reason of neglect of ti_s duty must be treated as equivalent to failure to
return the questionnaire after receipt.
Citizens Urged to Assist

The Food Controller Says:
We have reassou to believe that
maple sugar and maple syrup  production this year will lie somewhat
in Ihe neighborhood of double that
of  recent   vears;    Iu   1916  there
were approximately   55,coo maple
sugar producers in   Canada,   when
lhe total prAduclion  amounted   to
ii*,6jo,ooo   pounds of sugar  and
and   2,000,000   gallons of svrup.
So that, if the promise of  doubled
production lhis year  is sustained,
Eastern   Canada   should   produce
about 40,000,000 pounds  of sugar
and 4,000,000 gallons of syrup,  iu
1911 the price of maple sugar to
the farmer/ranged  from  5 to   10
cents per pound, according to quality and the district's availibility to
tlie market.    This year prices  are
quoted around 16 to is  cents and
tven higher for the better  grades.
Compared with 1911 the   increased
crop of sugar this year at this yean
pi ices should be worth  about   $6,-
000,000 as against $800,000, an increase of over 600 per  cent.    This
is on sugar alone.   Syrup is  quoted at from 51.40 to $165   per  gallon and 4,000,000 gallons will bnug
another 55,000,000, so thaf the total crop tliis year, if the  hopes of
those interested bear fruit, will total over $10,000,000. and most of
tllis money-will accrue to the farm.
ers as the result of three  week's
effort before regular farm  operations have commenced.    If due oare
were taken to prevent waste in the
sugar bush, arising from overflow.
ing of buckets, it is estimated  that
$2,000,000  worth of   sugar   and
syrup extra would be  saved.    All
this money  would   be e.x'ra over
and above the revenue accrued to
the farmer from regular field crops
livestock and other sources in vol v.
ing capital expenditure as wel!   as
labor   and   management.      Every
tree will produce from  30 cents to
$1 worth of sugar, and 5,006 trees
can be handled  almost as well  as
500 if energetic   preparations are
made.   The fanner can make $200
worth of syrup and sugar in   the
brief period of three weeks of early
spring, when otherwise, he would
be doing little or nothing of revenue
bringing value.   The   seasou has
a,ready commenced in South Western Ontario.

that he had wrenched Ins knee.

Oil that, and reached lhc top, where
he sat down with his lips firmly set,
and putting on the coat felt in tlio

Thc case ho took out was not his
nnd lie remembered that iic was
���wearing another man's coat. The
cigarettes were of Turkish tobacco,
which is not much used in Canada,
and he thought thc quality remarkably good. This seemed lo imply
that their owner had a cullivatcd
lastc, and Foster began to wonder
whether he was after all not a business man running away from his
creditors, but rejected the theory, ll
was strange that although   the cig-
mrettrs were expensive tlle ease was
of thc Kind sold in western stores
for fifty cents, but Foster presently
i*avc up speculating about the man.
The moon was getting low and
ragged pine branches cut against the
light. The track was wrapped in
shadow that was only a little less
dense than .he gloom of thc surrounding bush. It was nol really
-.-old for North Ontario, but the fur
coat was hardly enough protection to
make a bed in lhe open air comfortable. Foster had slept in the Athabasca forests when tlie thermometer
marked forty degrees below zero, but
We. then wore different clothes and
had been able to make a roaring lire
and build a snow bank between Iiini
And the wind. Moreover, hc was slill
liable lo be overtaken by the men on
ihe train.
Gelling up, be found his knee sore
and stiff, but limped on for an hour
or two after thc moon sank. Hc
Seemed to bc stumbling along thc
bottom of a dark trench', for the firs
shut him in like a wall and there
was only an elusive glimmer of light
above their serrated tops, lie did
not expect to find a house until he
reached the station, for much of
North Ontario is a wilderness where
the trees are loo small for milling
and agriculture is impossible between the rocks. To make tilings
worse, he felt hungry. The train had
stopped at about seven o'clock at a
desolate station where the passengers
were given a few minutes to get sup-
ncr, Imi Foster's portion was too
hot lor him lo cat. He tried to encourage himself by remembering that
lie bad once marched three hundred

frozen foot, but this did not make his

Featherstone's People
After walking for -ronie time, Foster heard a rumble in lire distanee
behind him and climbed the rocky
bank of thc single hue track, There
was not much room between the
bank and rails, and be was glad of
an excuse for sitting down. Taking
out the stranger's ease, he lighted
another of llie Turkish cigarettes.
They wcrc the only benefit he was
likely to derive fiom the adventure,
and he felt some satisfaction in making use of theni.
In the meantime lho rumble grew
into a roar thai rolled'across the
forest with a rhythmic heat, and a
ray oi light pierced the gloom up
the track, It was very bright and he
knew it was thrown by a locomotive
headlamp. A west-bound freight
train was coining and he unci wait
uniil it passed. Freight trains were
common objects, but as a rule when
Foster saw one nppronchiiig he slopped to watch. The great si,:e and
power of the locomotive appealed lo
Iiis imagination, and hc liked to think
of the reckless courage "f the men
who drove the sleel road through
eight hundreds miles of rugged wilderness to Port Arthur, and llu n on
again through rocks and muskegs to
ihe western prairie: It was a daring
feat, when one remembered lhe obstacles and that there was no traffic
to hc developed On the way.
The beam of light became a cone
of dazzling radiance; the rocks throbbed, and the gnarled pines shook as
thc roar swelled into a tremendous
harmony of many different notes.
Then there was a sudden darkness as
lhc locomotive leaped pasl and huge
box cars rushed, lurching and rocking, out of the thick, black smoke.
Flying ballast crashed against thc
rocks, and though the ground was
frozen hard a hail of small particle's
rattled among the trees. Then, as
the tail-lighls on thc caboose sped
by, a deep hoot of ihe whistle came
back from about a quarter of a mile
off, and soon afterwards the fading
glimmer vanished around a curve. It
seemed to be going' slower and tlie
rumblc died away suddenly. Foster
thought there was a side track ahead,
where the freight would wait until a j
train going in the other direction
crossed the switches. If he could |
reach the spot in lime, he might save
himself a long walk.

the gravel at the best pace hc could

in every part of the province, the
amount of fall plowing done iu Saskatchewan in 1917 is placed al fifty
per cent, more than was done in

prepared in 1917 for the 1918 crop is
also shown to bc considerably in excess of lhat of. the previous year.
The total area of land prepared in

Often Worse Than the   Disease Itself���Victims Left Weak, Ner-
ous and Worn Out
La Grippe���the name by which influenza is most generally known���is
B disease prevalent throughout Canada during the winter and spring
months. Anyone who has felt ils
pangs is not likely to forget the
tumble. La grippe starts with a
slight cold���and ends with a complication of troubles. It lays llic
strong man on his back; il tortures
him with fevers and chills, headaches and backaches. It leaves him
fl prey to pneumonia, bronchitis, consumption and other deadly diseases.
In fact its after effects are morc serious than the trouble itself. Vou can
avoid la grippe and winter colds by
keeping your blood rich and red bv
the occasional use of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. If you have not done this
and the disease lays you low, you
can banish all ils evil afler effects by
this same great blood-building, nerve
restoring medicine. -This has been
proved in thousands of cases
throughout Canada by la grippe victims who havc been made well and
strong through the use of Dr. Williams Pink Pills. Among thc cured
is Miss Irene Boolcs. Portsmouth,
Ont,  who    writes:���"I    take-    much
pleasure in recommending Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, because I have
proved their worth in my own ease.
Lasl winter I had a severe attack of
la grippe and it left mc weak and all

tion of the heart and attacks of neuralgia which left me with the feeling that life was scarcely worib living. I w'as taking doctor's medicine,
but it did not help mc and I was

Output of Alberta Mines
The total output of thc coal mines
of Alberta during 1917 was 4.863,414
Ions, from 283 mines    in operation.
These figures have been taken   from j Dr.
persuaded to
try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and 1
shall always have a good word to say
for them.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills not only
cure the disastrous after effects of la
grippe, but arc also a specific for all
these troubles due to poor blood,
such as anaemia, rheumatism, indigestion, women's ailments, and the
generally worn out feeling that affects so many people. You can get
these pills through any dealer in
medicine, or by mail at 50 cents a
box or six boxes for $2.50 from The

branch of the department of public
works of Alberta. During Ihe year
one copper mine was opened west
of Banff, and two shale mines wcrc
iu operation at Redclilfc, near Medicine Hat, Alberta.

The indications of worms are restlessness, grinding of the teeth, picking of the nose, extreme peevishness,
often convulsions. Under these conditions thc best remedy tliarcan bc

Brave Deed Is New Chapter in History of British Heroism
A remarkable story of the bravery
of llritish lars tu an effort to save
Halifax from disaster is now being
recounted for the first time at Ottawa.
The silent Britisii navy, following
its usual custom, has so far not published the story.
When the Mont Blanc was burning in Halifax harbor after the collision in the Narrows, there was a
small British gunboat not far away.
Her captain, realizing the danger
and knowing that the Mont Blanc
had been deserted by her crew, called for volntccrs to row to the Mont
Blanc for thc purpose of seeing if
anything could bc done-to sink or
tow her away from the city.
There was a ready response to the
call for volunteers. Thc tars reached
the ill-fated ship, were climbing over the sides, when she exploded, and
some 30 to 40 British sailors were
blown into eternity. It is as brave
au act as the great war has revealed.

Preparedness Pays
May Cost a Good Deal of Time and
Money But Pays in the End
There is only one way lo keep
the will active, and that is by exercising. The will is like lhe muscles, for even the finest of athletes
soon gels oul of condition unless he
exercises. A man ought to do every
day something that he does not rare
lo do, just for the sake of exercising
his will. That sort of exercise keeps
il in condition, ready for the harder
things of life when lhcy occur, and,
above all, prepared for emergencies
that may spring up. The doctrine of
preparedness is much bcllcr under-
Stood now than it was at the beginning of last year. It is as true for
the individual as the nation. It may
cost a good deal of time and energy
and money, but it saves in the cud.

Entirely Gone
After Twenty-seven Years of Suffering���Swelling    and    Pufliness
Has Disappeared���Not a
Pain or an Ache Left
A most astonishing cure of rheumatism and eczema has been reported here, and Mrs. Ray is enthusiastic
in telling her many friends how cure
was effected.
Rheumatism and eczema frequently go together, and in this case caused the most keen distress imaginable.
All the swelling and pufliness resulting from many years of rheumatism
have disappeared, and there is not a
pain or an ache left.
Mr. G. II. Ray, R.R. No. 1, Kincardine, Ont., writes: "Mrs. Ray has
been using your Kidney-Liver. Pills.
She was very bad with rheumatism
and eczema, and had had that fearful
itch fpr twenty-Seven years It was
simply terrible what she suffered,
persuaded her to try $1.00 worth of
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills. She
is now on the last box, and let ine
tell you she scarcely knows herself,
she is so free from bolh these diseases. All the swelling and pufliness
caused by lhc rheumatism has gone
away, and she has gone down in
weight 18*4 pounds. She never has
an ache or pain, biliousness or sick
headache all these months. She often says herself 'How glad I am that
I know what lo do instead of paying
doctors so much to make ine
There is only one way that the
poisons in the blood can bc cleaned
away and thc cause of pains and
aches removed, and that is by the
hcaltful action of thc kidneys, liver
and bowels. Because Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver I'ills act directly and
specifically on these organs and insure their activity they remove the
cause of rheumatism and other dreadfully painful and fatal diseases. Onc

Instruments of Destruction
Each year of the -war, the New
York Tribune points out, has produced some new instrument of destruction. For example, in 1914 came
the 42-ccntimeter gun which pulverized fortifications that were supposed to hc impregnable; in 1915, the
use of poison pas as a weapon of
attack; in 1916, thc "lank"; in 1917
the depth bomb which has limited
the menace of the submarine. I��
Alberta Exports 200 Cars of Butter
During lhe year 1917, two hundred
cars of creamery Imttcr were export-
led from Alberta.   This province was
| the first in Western Canada to grade
i ils butter and cream, and lo Mr. C,
Marker, dairy   commissioner   of Alberta, belongs the credit of starting
a movement which is now general in
lhc west, and which has had the effect of creating a standard of creamery butter that is not excelled  anywhere.
Mr. Marker recently lectured before the dairymen of North Dakota
at Fargo, on the "Standardization of
Never Abused Papa
The little tot was "losted." At thc
station the officer tried all sorts of
questions to ascertain who the was.
Finally he said: "What name does
your mother call your father?"
"She doesn't call him any name,"
replied thc child "the likes him."

Get Behind the Wheel
of a Ford and Drive
TRY it just once! Ask your friend to let you "pilot" his
ear on an open stretch. You'll like it, and will be surprised how easily the Ford is handled and driven.
If you have never felt the thrill of driving your own car,
there is something good in store for you. It is vastly
different from just riding���being a passenger. And especially so if you drive a Ford.
Young hoys, girls, women and even grandfathers���thousands ot them���are driving Ford cars and enjoying it. A
Ford stops and starts in traffic with exceptional ease and
smoothness, while on country roads and hills its strength and
power show to advantage.

useful members of society and has

It is said that an Eyangelist recently told the people of a neighboring town that if they wished to
see the newspaper man of that town
converted, the immediate payment
of their back subscriptions was the
first stept to be taken towards the
desited end. That's a good, practical ^suggestion. When a man
walks into a (printing office and
planks down the cash for five or
jix years back subscription he's got
genuine dyed-in-the-wool religion
and it makes a'profouud impression
of the editor.
A great deal of unnecessary
growling, heart-ache, headache,
back-ache and many skinned fingers in this old world could be saved in which the people���that is the

could be passed forbidding the renovation ; of a house more than
once a year. At housecleaning
time, which (rolls around all the
way from twice to five times a year
according to tbe family code, a
man wants to commit suicide and
the woman wants to kill him because he does not, "it's a necessary
evil that breaks hearts aud backs
at the same time. It is something
a man raises a row about doing
and a bigger one about not doing.
It is contradictory; it is redolent of
soap suds, cobwebs, and carpet
beating, heads in dustrags,]aud bare
arms; it is a nuisance and none dare
dispute the assertion.
