They'll have no husband to depend upon! Women of the future in
England must do man's work as shown in photograph above and go through
life alone because of husband famine which will be one result of the war.
TOLD BY COUNTESS RUSSELL, TO
MARY BOYLE O'REILLY
London, England, July 27. The
war's death roll can never be count
ed. The men who die are but a tithe
of the tolL For far greater than the
actual losses reported is the loss of
the unborn dead for whom nobody
yet mourns. Those tiny unseen vic
tims whose number will never be
known are the greater Iobs to the
state.
Next year we will begin to count
the shrinkage in the birth rate. Five
years of empty cradle land and the
scarcity of children will become a na
tional problem. How, for instance,
will France, Belgium and Serbia re
cover from the carnage which has
already bled them white?
In England we areonly beginning
to realize our losses.' Hardly a British
officer who went to Prance last Aug
nst is alive today. Not one of the old
life guards the pick of England's
aristocracy still lives.
