POOR SUFFER MOST !
AS RESULT OF WAR
Typical Example of Disadvant
age? Poorer Class Must Face
LONDON, May L-War falls heav
ily on the poor. Food and coal have
steadily advanced in price and many
husbands and fathers have gvien up
comparatively fair wages for a shil
ling a day and the king's uniform,
witli only a small government allow
ance for the support of those left be
Typical examples of the strugglies
of soldier's dependents havo been
published in one of the Loudon news
papers. In one case a soldier's wife
says Uiat where she previously paid
I $3.15 for living expenses for one
week, she now pays nearly $5.00.
! Rent now costs her 85 cents a week,
food $1.75 and the remainder goes to
! various benefit clubs and for other
expenses. But between the govern
ment allowance, her husband's com
muted a|ay and the work she gets
from the Queen's Needlework guild
hy making shirts for soldiers, sho ls
I able not only to put a shilling a week
Into the bank but another one aside
for a clothing fund.
Among this womun's weekly items
ls a shilling to a feather club, which
she exp'-ins as follows:
"I am in a feather club to get a
lancer plume which will cost 15 shil
lings ll pence ($4). If you don't
I wear a good hat in Whitehorse Lane,
they say you are coming down in the
world, and I don't won't them to think
that. Also, a nice hut makes you
feel young, and really I am only
very young. I always try to look
.dean and decent"
Another story comes from a labor
er' wife, who has one son in the army
and two sons, aged respectively 13
and two years at home. Her income
is 15 shillings a week from her hue
hand, two shilling sixpence from the
lididxs' association and the same
from the 13 year old boy when work
ing and four shillings earned by her
self at shirt making, altogether 24
shillings or $6.00 dollars.
Bread, she says, is their heaviest
expense, since they use four loaves*
a day, costing $2.20 a week. Rent
comes to $1.25 altogether and mere
cost of living leaves only a few peo
nies out of the weckl income. Meat
in the form of a stew ls a luxury for
Sundays. Bread and margarine is the
main fdoo ot the; family. Her story
"I spend nothing on myself. I
Son't remember when I had any new
clothes. I don't belong to any feather
clubs. I am too old for that-I'm 40.
Some tlmea tile children run errands
and get a penny to spend on the
moving pictures. They like the cow
boy films. My husband works very
long and very bard, but allows him
self only three pence (6 cents) a day
? for outside mc H "m. He has no money
to go anywhere, so he goes to bed. I
have plenty of work to do. I don't
<now what business mea>it>. My wed
ding ring went a long time ago for
bread, and now I wear a braes one.
But Oie hardest thing to bear is when
a lady visitor asks me why I don't pul
something away for a rainy day."

EFFECTS OF WAR
COLOGNE, May L-Because of the
large number of druggists and phar
macists who have gone to war, the
proprietors of Blores in Cologne and
Ita auburba bave decided to evolve an
alternate Sunday holiday and night
service so that their long hoars of
service may be cut down.
Hereafter the various atores will
take turns in shutting up at 2 o'clock
on Sundays and at 9 o'clock on week
day evenings. When a store does
close up at these hours, however, a
sign will be left at tho door indicating
wnere a would-be-customer may find
a' drug store open. The war han left
the druggists who have remained In
Cologne pushed to the limit.
A Striking Example of the Peculiar Advantages Secured Under the
Policy Contract of
The Mutual Benefit Life Insurance Co., of Newark, N. J.
Tulsa, Okla., Mar. 16, 1909.
Mr. A. D. Young, Agent,
.Mutual Benefit Life Ins. Co.,
Please accept my sincere thanks for your company's check for $10.000
which ia now received, just ten days after the papera were sent In.
My husband took thia insurance last summer, the policy being-dated July
14, 1908. with premiums payable semi-annually. He paid the first semi-,
annual premium but did not pay the second which was due on January 14th
of thia year, and told me that the policy had lapsed. He died quite suddenly
on March 1st, and I was greatly surprised to learn from you that by the non-'
forfeiture provisions of his policy lt was kept in force aixty dgya after the
second payment waa due, and that as he had died within Ulla time the policy
waa atill in force and would be paid In full. Thia baa now been done and I
realize how very fortunate lt waa that Mr. Friend had this policy In the
Mutual Benefit, tile only company that I know anything about which would
have paid anything under circumstances.
Very truly your?,
JULIA A; FRIEND.
Mr. Friend's policy had lapsed for non-payment of the second half of tho
first year's premium, January 14. 1909. Under the non-forfeiture provision
of his contract, however, the Insuranco waa automatically extended for 60
days, to March 14. When Mr. Friend died therefore the claim was paid. As
beneficiary, Mra. Friend received only what was due her under the writtnu
contract, yet under the policy contracts of other componte* she would not
have received a cenL Avoid regrets by investigating thc Mutual Benefit
