An Omaha woman, says an ex
change, is suing for divorce from
her fourteenth husband. Nine
of the conjugal partners are still
alive. She got her last man in
January by advertising for him,
and that shows what advertising
will do. If a woman 55 years
old can win her fourteenth hus
band by advertising for him, it
is pretty good argument against
tho virtues of printer' ink. But
the fact is also brought out that
the advertiser should deliver the
goods as she promised, which
this one failed to do. Sho was
