When Dickens came over to America

the grace he could command between

Providence that the gravy would not
slop over. The passengers sent their

DIVORDE IN NEW ORLEANS
A recent editorial in the New Orleans Item deals with the divorce sit
uation in New Orleans, and from the figures given the conditions are cer
tainly appalling. When twenty-eight per cent of the number of marriages
in a single year are dissolved in the divorce courts, it is surely time for an
awakening to the gravity of the subject. One of the reasons, in our opinion,
for the great number of divorces in this city is the ease with which the
marriage relation is consummated. Hereafter in this column we shall have
more to say on this subject. For the present we will quote from the Item
"New Orleans issued 2,770 marriage licenses last year.
"Applications were made during the year for 464 absolute divorces and
310 separations-a total of 774 marriage failures.
"More than one Orleans marriage failed utterly, in other words, for
every four marriages for which licenses were granted.
"The number of Orleans marriages thus shattered was 28 per cent of
the number of new marriages permitted.
"These figures take no account of the unhlappy marriages that never
find their way into court.
"'nbelief is our first impulse as these shocking figures impose them
selves on us. Yet they stand in the records. Their message may escape
us unless \e reflect upon them.
"Marriage maketh a man whole, said the sage. Surgery does the
same-- sometimes. Yet how many of the men and women who go daily and
weekly to the operating table for a longer lease on comfortable life, to be
healed by the surgon's skill-how many of them would ever go at all if
they knew that 'b of each 100 who tiaveled that route returned either
dead or grievously and painfully maimed, more burdensome to themselves
* * * "The marriage of one woman to one man, whether you regard
it as a sacrament or as a contract, is the foundation of all white civiliza
tions. It has been the very door-sill, hearthstone and social unit and civic
impulse since history dawned upon those races especially that founded
this republic and shaped its growth.
"This fact and those figures, taken together, are worth a few moments
of your thought. When you sap the foundations of anything, they collapse,
and when the foundations collapse the thing fails.
"States and peoples have been ruined before now by their blindness
to this simple detail. Great basic institutions like marriage have also been
frivolously treated by impulses in the transient distemper of certain ages
in the history of the people--periods not remembered with notable respect
"Nobody in our latter-day society blunders into marriage for the sheer
pleasure of getting a divorce, though the ease of getting one doubtless
makes such blunders more frequent. We are suffering more from an im
moral carelessness than from an uncaring immorality.
"Some fools, over-read and under-educated, sublimely inspired by
their own emptiness, imagine they have evolved from their mental vacuums
sound and sufficient substitutes for ancient principles of racial conduct;
these are few enough to be ignored.
"Some vicious characters cloak their vices in the more agreeable and
plausible garments of these fools' vagaries. The rest of those that go to
pot in the matrimonial adventure probably do so because they have for
gotten, or else do not know, that marriage demands more than it once did
from both parties, and especially from the man-that is, because they are
ignorant, thoughtless or heedless. The healthy man or woman who treads
the divorce mill is never the same afterward. This experience leaves a
scar worse than the knife, for this scar is in the spirit."
Domestic Science Department
The question is being asked now, "What has become of the Domestic
Science Department which was to have been established on this side of
the river, to be in operation at the same time that the other like departments
were opened in the city proper?" Surely the Algiers childrn are as de
serving of this kind of education as are the children of the city side. We
pay the same rate of taxation, the men are just as loyal as voters, and pay
their pro rata of poll tax for the support of the public schools and while
almost every district in the city has had established there domestic science
departments, Algiers is still waiting for a teacher and for the proper par
aphernalia to begin this most important work, which was one of the great
subjects before the School Board some time ago when Mr. Charles Prosser
came here from Chicago to give a series of lectures under the auspices of
the Public School Alliance, also appearing before the local School Board,
giving his experience in this kind of work.
We understand that the Domestic Science Department has been estab
lished in every schol district in the city of New Orleans excepting Algiers.
Is it really the name "Algiers" that hurts us most': Is it that we
are separated from the city proper by the Mississippi river that we should
be so often slighted? Is it a fact that we are not equally entitled to the
same things that are given to the city side of the river? We cannot believe
this. It certainly then must be a lack of interest that our citizens will allow
a continual discrimination against the Fifth District of the city of New
Orleans. Our School Board is made up of prominent men who are well ed
ucated and no doubt have their work systematized so far as the city is
concerned, but for this special subject we have been woefully neglected
and it is the purpose of The Herald to make a further investigation into
the matter and take it up directly with the School Board.
We believe that the Algiers children are justly entitled to a Domestic
Science Department and should be given equal facilities with the city
The equipment of the school for this department was started before
school opened for this term, being some four months ago, and the only
things Algiers has received so far are cooking utensils which have been
stored away in a pantry in the Belleville School. Only recently have some
of the stoves been received. What is mostly needed now is a teacher to
start the work.

REASONS FOR SPEED.
e The following leter was writen, at
Silds request, to the physicial director
of the Belleville School by a little girl
who made the three trips in all-up
relay in record breaking time, 21 1-5
New Orleans, La., Dec. 23, 1913.
Dear Sir-The reasons why I ran
so fast are: In the first place I stood
in the correct position to begin. I
stood with my left foot on the line
I and my right foot in the back, and
I my left hand extended forward.
Secondly, my whole mind was con
centrated upon the one thought, run
ning. I ran on my toes and at the
same time made as large steps as
possible. In changing the clubs, I
placed them right near the edge of
the ring, thus taking only a short
time. When I reached the middle I
increased in speed, but when the end
was nearing I began to slacken up.
In slackening up it kept me from run
ning across the boundary.
On my last trip I did not stop at
the line, neither did I slacken up,
but I kept on running as fast as was
possible. I used my arms as well
as my legs, and it was due to this
that I ran so quickly for had I not
used my arms it would have taken
me twice as long.

made about Mount Athos was that of
the architect Dinocrates. His plan
was to cut it into the shape of a gi

holding in the right hand a city, in the
left a tank that was to receive all the
waters of the region. Alexander was
much taken with the scheme. But it
was eventually rejected on the ground
that the neighboring country was not
fertile enough to feed the inhabitants
of the projected city. Another of Dinoe
rates' plans was a temple to the wife
of King Ptolemy of Egypt, with a root
