' The man looked in a dazed way in
to his wife's face.
"Good Lord, Nora!" he ejaculated.
"Is it keep the little nipper yez
mean?"
"Michael! ThinlTof one of our own
babies growing up in the society's
home in the city, without ever sight
of a tree or a flower. Let me keep
him, Michael! I've asked little of yez
before, but now I want him oh, I
want' Mm so much!"
Michael bent over the bed and took
the little hand in his.
"Well, girl, I guess one more won't

MARRIAGE EPIDEMIC
London, England. Are highly-educated
women averse to and unfitted
for marriage?
The answer is a distinct "No," if
one may judge from the -state of af
fairs disclosed at the meeting in
Vauxhall Bridge road of the govern
ing body of the Horticultural Col
lege, Swanley. ,
Moving the adoption of the annual
report, Sir-John Cockburn, who pre
sided, said the college was perform
ing a great work in the direction of
providing higher education for wo
men. Referring to the success which
students bad attained, he said that
they had received more applications
from employers offering posts than
they were able to cope with. Those
women workers found posts not only
in this country, but in he colonies,
carrying with them the torch of civi
lization and the best traditions of the
British race.
"Unfortunately," added Sir John,
"the college suffers from a continu
ous epidemic of matrimony. Not only
are our students exposed to the great
est possible danger in this direction,
but even our staff has inroads made
upon it. While we congratulate the
individual, we deplore the loss to the
institution."
