The Fanners' Free lAst.
The house of representatives of
the national congress has passed
what Is known as the "farmers' free
list bill." The bill has the united
support of the democrats and in ad
dition to this there were 24 repub
lican votes cast in its favor. The
purpose cf the free list bill is to re
move the tariff from articles used ex
clusively by farmers and Incidentally
to offset any Imaginary Injury that
might result from the reciprocity
treaty -with Canada. Among the ar
ticles to be placed on the free list
are: Plows, harvesters, mowers,
farm wagons and carts and all other
agricultural implements, whether In
whole or in part; bagging and all
other material suitable for covering
end baling cotton or for bagging or
sacking other agricultural products;
hoop or band Iron for baling cotton
or any other commodity and wire for
baling hay. straw and other agricul
tural products; many varieties of
leather and boots and shoes made
from this leather; harness and sad
dTes; barbed wire fence and wire suit
able for fencing: fresh salted and
cured meats; flours of various kinds
and prepared cereal foods; timber
and other lumber, except that made
from specified cabinet woods; sew
ing machines and all their parts;
salt, whether in bulk or in packages.
There is ro doubt that tlse placing
of th?s? articles would be of advan
tage to many others besides the
farmers, and there is no reason for
ihe failure tQ pass the l!pf except the'
unreasoning opposition of those who '
believe that the tariff is something i
eacren anfj tnat ,t .jj, enaljle na
tlon fo tax u r.-fh or ft ,t8elf
by its own bootstraps. This ques
tion has really no bearing on the
general me of reciprocity of trade
with Canada and this will appear af
ter its passage.
While the reciprocity treaty is the
important thing at this ime, the
"free list" is one that ought to com
mend itself to the legislators as one
that strikes at the root of the tariff

RIGHTS OF THE WIFE.
An Important Decision Affecting Matri
An important case reeenlly decided
Is De lirauwere versus Ite Brauwere,
where the late Justice Whitney of New
York held that an abandoned wife who
has expended her own money for nee-
essaries for herself and the children of
the marringe may Recover the amount
so expended In tin action directly
against the husband.
It is, however, only the logical exten
sion of doctrines long recognized by
the law namely, that the wife has
the irrevocable right to pledge her
husband's ennlit for necessaries in case
he fails to support her tlujrewith. and,
further, that she may in such case
even ,,orrow money on his credit and
expend it for necessaries and that the
lender may.recover the amount so lent
and expended from the husband.
These rules were, however, inade
; quale to meet the needs of the wife in
mnny cases, becau.se oftcutimes the
, delinquent husrTand had no credit
I which she could pledge, and even if
i he had credit or she could procure as-
sistnnce from friends she was placed

she would rather add to it Mr. Edwin

ladies who were in love with him, for
his heart was plenty large enough to
take them all in. Their loves evapo

Twiss materialized. She gave him ev
ery encouragement. He returned her
love, differing from the loves he bore
the others in this that his love for
Miss Twiss was not snuffed out as in
the other cases by her announcing her
engagement to some one else.
Mr. Wheaton was emboldened to
propose to Miss Twiss. She knew very '
well his circumstances; but, yielding to j
a natural desire in girls to bother their j
lovers, she asked him as to his proper- i

"Neither. They all bear the name of

"I understand. I wouldn't have you
give your friends away for the world,
although they have iusde permanent

"I certainly haTe," he exclaimed,

Miss Twiss had noticed Mr. Whea

met hfim at the shoemaker's and di

matter over and sent a messenger to

Wheaton's bill and take a receipt.

Of course the note and the surplus

She telephoned Mr. Wheaton that she
would like him to call.

that the one thing you possess shall
