Innocent persons are hoodwinked by
statements that the Democratic party
recommendations arc only tentative,

rountfy-wldc notice nnd discussion.
Until the President jumped Into tho

fair to be :i topic that would hold the

In grand totals the figures pub

problem more practical Interest lies
In the division of divorces among
States and sections.

Jersey, and Pennsylvania the divorces
of 1807-1880 wero 73,303; those of
1SS7-190G were 14:',920. For tho
