There is deep food for thought in
the statement of Policewoman Boyd

restaurant to protect Henrici's. The
autocracy of Russia will have to
cease its boasting if the Land, of the

doing through the combined efforts
of the millionaires in back of this and
every other fight against the work

only the monied interests.

Old -Bings was known th' country
As quite a judge o' hogs.
He'd pick, 'em half a jmile away
Or sleepin' sound as logs.
He'd tell their age an' pedigree,
Their habits an' their weighs,
Se he,"Th' only thing to do
Is.raise a hog that pays." -Hd
doctored 'em an' fussed with 'em
A-watchin' fer disease
He dreaded Texas cholery,
He shivered at th' fleas.
Old Bings he had an only, boy,
cunnin' little chap,
TEat-used to play behind his chair,
But never in His lap.
For Bings was busy readin' up
Th' ways t kill disease
In animals that- bloated up
An' wobbled on their knees.
Th' boy grew up an' up an' up,
He traveled to th' dogs,
WhileBings is breedin' better stock
Ah' sleepin' with th' hogs.
ISHALL WIVES "OBEY?"
CJhurch of England bishops are'
having a gabby time trying to find
out if they've the nerve to strike out
of the woman's side of the marriage
vow the word "obey."
Isn't the issue one of right inter
pretation rather than the axe?
Give us the power to construe the
word, and we'd like to see it not only
kept in the woman's half, but also put
into the men's.
Of course, to expect a woman to
do the bidding of a burly, brutal hus
band merely because he has a bully's
might, is absurd, and abhorrent. If
that's what "obey" means or was
meant to mean, then out it ought to
go, the quicker the better.
And it is unfortunately true that
creatures of the male persuasion
have been known and are extant to
day (though we, believe growing
fewer) who have the colossal ef
frontery to adopt that construction
and expect the law to back them in it.
Our idea is- different. Where love
truly is, the obedience it exacts.
doesntt rest on force or obligation,
but on willingness, eagerness. To
obey the one you love is a pleasure.
