the nation so far as Hock Island is
fact, it is practically certain that a home
rule bill will be introduced next year.
But it is also certain thnt the govern
ment, with due regard for the senti
rrcnt of the English and Scotch ekc
toiatc and with the knowledge that the
home of lyrds would surely deject such
a measure, will not put uelore parlia
ment the bill which Mr. Redmond de
mands. In short, the government would
compromise. It would settle its obli-
gatieuis lo the nationalists by paying 50
cents on the dollar. Hut the national
ists are no longer in the mood to take
half a loaf, holding it to be better than
no bread. They want the debt dis
charged in full, and, failing that, they
are eager to fight.
If their revolt against the government
were confined entirely to the home rule
issue, it would have little effect. Allow
ing the entire Irish vote in the house
of commons to the unionists minority,
the government could still safely count
upon dominating every situation. But
i he important labor contingent in the
house has also exhibited signs of dis
affection, and ihere are likewise evi
dences that the premier cannot keep
his liberal battalions in order. With
wcakiK-ss apparent all along the line,
it is easy to understand how serious
will be the secession of more than So
nationalist votes in any important cri
sis. So far the big stick has not been
raised in Ireland's behalf.

and looked serious.

All ' women worlc f" some ' in ' their

mills and shops tens of thousands are
on the never-ceasing treadmill, earning"
their dailj- bread.
All are subject to the same physical
laws; all suffer alike from the same
physical disturbance, and the nature of
their duties, in many cases, quickly
drifts them into the horrors ot all
kinds of female complaints, tumors,
