'TO MLLE. S: E. Dear Mile."
S e, we men do not understand a
mother's love for a child. We do not
understand a woman's longing for a
child,' its little baby hands, its cooing
and loving. Still we men regulate
everything. Woman is a dog in the
Old Testament. She is blamed by
man for Adam's fall and there is not
a woman among Christ's twelve, dis
ciples. This shows how Asiatic is
thte bible's position on woman. Man
wrote the bible and all other Korans.
We men do not know the pangs of
motherhood. Still Ve make all laws.
We men do so much killing that we
are no more fit to pass laws for
women or write bibles "than David
,was fit to- build the temple.
Many a poor soul is like you, Mile.
S eKJonely and living unnaturally
to please man. God knows, I wish
there was a good, perfectly-mated
husband for every woman, but there
never has been and there never will
be. Meantime, half of our women
are denied mother's love for her own
child just to please selfisli man.
Women break down everywhere with
nervous prostration and other un

" A father will claim he loves his
daughter. Still he will let her pine
"away in lonely wretchedness, child

very selfish love. Doctors prescribe
marriage for ailing young women
more than anything else. Still man
refuses her health except by mar

with her child in her arms as our
ideal. I hope to live until we will
gather atthe bedside of mothers
without "poking for or seeing the fa

unto us this day a child is born."
Motherhood everywhere should be
grand and sweet and the old school,
of thought should die.
The Germans, Swedes and Norwe

THE AMERICA SPIRIT. I do .
not like to throw bouquets or "shoojt

Now, in reading over your Forum
letters, I notice so many of your cor
respondents constantly bring up the
Non-America'n-Spiritf of Catholicity,
and many of our good and true
Americans are misled by those state
ments. This article is not intended to
champion Catholicity, I would rath
er say it is in a minor way intended
to champion a people and country I
love dearer than life. A true Amer

hands are stretched out to assist the

The anti-Catholic is not true Amer
