Trade Union and every decent wo
man in the city, but that derelict is
alone, and so he is the recipient of
police caresses. There will be no dam
age suit filed by him.
And I looked these men over, these
representatives of the law. Who are
they? Workingmen paid no great
amount of money, if one considers
only the wage they receive. They are
the sons bf working people and their
children will be working people.
Why,- then, do they 'wage war on.
the working class? Are they so blind
they do not realize that if this class
struggle keeps on as it is doing,
through the oppression of the work-t
ers by the capitalists, that they will of,
necessity be drawn into it? And if,
they are not, their children .will?
At any rate, they have proven their!
ability to arrest and manhandle a'
drunken derelict provided there are,
two of them to do it.
THE CONFESSIONS OF A WIFE
A HARD QUESTION TO ANSWER
Things happen so peculiarly at
times that one might think there was
a diabolical agency about which
shaped them a personage who mix
ed circumstances and events into all
sorts of catastrophes for us and then
smiled to see us squirm.
Just when I think that wedlock is
one grand sweet song something hap
pens which throws all my theories to
the winds and shows me that .no one
make hard and fast rules by which
to live a peaceable and harmonious
After Dick went away yesterday
morning the telephone rang and the
clerk, announced "Mrs. William Ten
ney to see Mrs. Waverly."
For a minute I could not think who
Mrs. William Tenney was and then
it came to me that she was the wife
of Dick's friend who was supposedly
in love' with Kitty Malram.
Poor Kitty! I had not heard from
her but once since she had gone
away, on my advice, to find out if,
when she was away from Bill Ten
ney's magnetic personality and the
constant stream of flowers and other
gifts, she really loved him well
enough to let scandal play fast and
loose with her name while she and
Bill waited for his wife to divorce
I was thinking of this and wonder
ing what Mrs. Tenney wanted of me
while she was being escorted by the
boy to my room. I had never seenf
her to my knowledge. I opened the
door at a somewhat imperious knock'
and was confronted by a very hand-J
some woman of most winning man
ner. She plunged at once into herf
"You will probably think I am'
crazy for coming to see you, MrsJ
Waverly," she said, "but I have reach
ed a point where I must talk to some-!

"Kitty and I have known each)
other since children and as we both)
lost our parents while in early girl-i
hood, I think there has always been
a sympathetic feeling between us,")
I answered as I brought a chair for-

"Mrs. Waverly," she continued,'
"you have been married only a shortf
time and I expect you are up to)
date perfectly happy, but I want1
you to know that Will and I were)
just as happy as anyone could be the?
first year of our marriage. I loved!
Will devotedly and I think he cared
for me, but it is just as impossible'
for Bill Tenney to settle down and
be true to any woman as it is for'
water to keep from running dowri
