Washington, Aug. 13.Advices re teived here indicate that President Roosevelt will call the senate in ex traordinary session early in Novem ber. Ever since it became evident that nothing would be accomplished as to reciprocity with Cuba at the recent session of congress rumors of a more or less definite nature have been in cir culation that the president would call an extra session, either of the entire congress to enact Cuban reciprocity legislation, or of the senate to ratify if possible a reciprocal treaty with Cuba. During the past week it has been stated that it was the purpose of Presi dent Roosevelt to call a special ses sion of the senate early in September. It can be stated by authority that he has no such intention. His time and that of many members of both political parties will be occupied during Sep tember and October. It is under stood to be the belief of the president that a session of the senate held for the purpose ot ratifying a reciprocity treaty with Cuba would be much more likely to be fruitful of results if held after the November elections than if held before. It is assured that the question of the relations of the United States with Cuba will enter largely into the approaching campaign and it is stated that the president feels the Democrats will be less likely to offer serious opposition to a reciprocity treaty after the election than they would before that time. A treaty with Cuba practically has been prepared. It requires only the finishing touches and the signatures of Minister Quesada and Secretary of State Hay to make it ready for pres entation to the senate. No definite date, it is understood, has been fixed upon for the meeting in November, but that it will be soon after the election is reasonably cer tain. The president, it is said, hopes to have the reciprocity question cleared away entirely before the reg ular session of congress. "THE FOES OF MARRIAGE." Professor Andrews Lectures at the University of Chicago. Chicago, Aug. 13.E. Benjamin Andrews, chancellor of the University of Nebraska, in a lecture upon "The Foes of Marriage," at the University of Chicago, declared that the Ameri can divorce laws are so loose that they are a curse both upon parents and their children. Professor An drews also claimed that a bachelor has no place in the social scale and that to marry a consumptive is a crime. Advice to persons intending marriage was plentiful in Dr. Andrews' lecture. "Hasty marriages do more evil to the marriage relation than anything else," he declared. "Early marriages ought to be discouraged. No one should marry before the age of twenty-one twenty-five is the best age. "The ease with which divorce is secured in this country is the greatest foe to marriage, and, in fact, creates divorces which otherwise would not have been thought of. The injustice done to the children by a divorce In the family is so great that no language can do justice to it. No one who has ever been divorced can pass through the experience unharmed. With jt goes the best possibilities of a life of service to this world never to return." TWO FATALLY SHOT. Bl'nd Pigger Killed and a Farmer Wounded at Edmore, N. D. Devils Lake, N.
