CONDENSED NOVEL SERIES!
OLIVER GOLDSMITH
Oliver Goldsmith. Enrlish poet. playwright, novelist and man of let
ters, w&i born in 1728. There has been some question as to the place of
hia birth, but recent Investigators have claimed that It was at Smith
Hill House. Elphin. Roscommon. Ireland. White Oliver was still a child
the family moved to the county of West Meath. He was sent to the
village school when only seven.
where the master, while teaching
reading, writing and arithmetic.
managed to also fill the minds of his
pupils with stories of fairies, ghosts.
banshees.
Goldsmith left this school at tha
age of nine, and went to several
grammar schools. and acquired
some knowledge of the ancient lan
guages. He was not a brilliant
scholar; in fact was considered
rather backward. He was small of
stature, with features harsh to ug
liness. and was the butt of the
other boys and the masters.
After many and varied attempts
to lit himself for a profession, and
repeated failures, he took to writ
ing. As his name gradually be
came known, his circle of acquaint
ances widened. He was introduced
to Johnson, then considered the firs*
of English writers, to Sir Joshua
Reynolds. the famous English
painter, and others.
Before the "Vicar of Wakefield
appeared in 1766. came the gr??at
crisis of Goldsmith's life. In Christ
mas week. 1764. he published a
poem, entitled "The Traveller.* It
was the first work to which he had
pwt his name, and it raised him ai
once to the rank of a legitimate
English classic.
After "The Traveller" appeare 1
"The Vicar of Wakefield." and it
rapldlv obtained a popularity which f
has lasted down to our times. OLIVE it GOLDSMITH. 1728-1774.
"The earlier chapters show all the
sweetness of pastoral poetry, together with all the vivacity of comedy.
It is claimed that the latter part of the tale is not worthy of the
beginning. . ? ,, , . ?
The success which he won with this story encouraged Goldsmith to
try his hand as a dramatist, and he wrote the "Good Natur'd Man."
The play, however, which is best known to later times is "She Stoops to
Conquer." It was brought out at tho Covent Garden Theatre, and "pit.
boxes and galleries were in a constant roar of laughter."
Goldsmith died on April 4. 1774. in hi* 46th year. He was laid in
the churchyard of the Temple, but the spot was not marked by any
inscription and is now forgotten.

Mr Burchell. a pleasing and in

much ??f Squire Thornhill. our n?-w
landlord, who. it seemed, was he
pleasure-loving nephew of the great
and worthy Sir William Thornhill.
Mr. Burchell had the great kindn -js
to rescue my daughter Sophia, who

became a frequent visitor at our
little habitation, lured, perhaps by
my wife's venison pasty?or perhaps
by the charms of my pretty daugh

(co we were not at loss for merry
company. My wife, ambitious to

world, desired that I sell our colt

visit. I
She seat Moses, who was a most
discreet bargainer, and whom his

brushed his buckles and cocked his I

fair he was imposed upon by a,
prowling sharper, who. after Moses |
had well bargained away the colt.,
managed to get the purchase money,

my wife laid a thousand schemes to

merits of her daughter. The results,
however, being small, my wife sought
to rouse Mr Thornhlll's Jealousy by
htnttng of Olivia's marriage with
Farmer Williams, a mo?*. \\?.thyj

her. It seems they were married j
by a black scoundrel, who had be- '

that my little home was utterly |

Swatting the Divorce "Bug"
Famous Divorce Court Judge Describes "Germ" in Foreword to
Six Articles on Causes and Cure of Marital Troubles.
By JUDGE THOS. F. GRAHAM
(Son Francinco Divorce Jadye
Known an "Great Reconciler," and
America** Leading "Heart" Spec- '
lalUt.)
Excepting the germs of Bolshevism,
there is no "bug" more menacing to
our general happiness and welfare to
day than the "divorcitis" maggot.
This disease, in tne treatment of
which I have specialized to a greater
or lesd degree during the past ten
years, may easily become epidemic.
It attacks the minds of married folk
in a hundred different ways?but each
particular route leads to a court room,
leaving a wrecked home behind it.

I That is the almost invariable result
, unless the specialist in "divorcltis"?

i whom the afTlictcd wife or husband
! tells the story?uses the palliatives or
common sense and the milk of human
, kindness.
| The divorce plague is comparatively
modern.
j True, the Bible tells us of men who
j "put aside" their wives for one rea
son or another?but there was no
I legal or church sanction until the
| middle period of the Roman empire,
j when it became lepal for a man to
i divorce his wife, and for a father to
j take his daughter from her husband
! against the wishes of both.
Even then separation of husband
j and wife were so distasteful that
for fifty years no man took advan
tafi** of the law. The first man to
invoke it was Spurius Rupra, who
repudiated his wife on account of
barrenness. A Roman senator was
once expelled from his high office
for unjustly divorcing his wife.
In A. D. S31 the Emperor Con
stantino decreed, for the first time,
that a wife might divorce her hus
band for any one of the following
three crimes: Murder, the prepara

"I have the finest reason a woman i
could have," I said.
And then, with one of his hands on
the steering wheel and the other!
clutching the flesh of my arm, he I
made me tell him what I meant.
"I mean merely this," I began, try- j
ing not to squirm as his fingers dug |
into my arm. "An Innocent little life
should be protected long, long before
it begins. That, to me, is as true as
religion.
"We've got a nice home, plenty to
eat and wear." he exclaimed. "A
youngster wouldn't fare badly if he
lived with us."
"I don't mean that. Crittenden.*' I
said. "You are bound to realize the
impossibility of the thing under the
circumstances. You know as well as
I do what our life has been?is now." |

"But don't you realize," I cried,
"that the crucible of life should be

more than they consume?
"And now." I demanded, at last,
passionately, "do you think your love

A Isdal Disease.
One hundred and ten years later
the Hfcnperors Theodosius and Val
entinian added to these grounds for
divorce the following: Treason,
adultery, forgery, stealing from a
church, attempting a wife's life or
beating her, and the introduction
of immoral women into the home.
Thus the "bug" began to thrive
and flourish, and "divorcltls" took
its place among the important so
i cial diseases of the world.
Just now America seems to be
a particularly fertile ground for
it. to our tremendous national det
I riment.
With the growth of America's
| sense of justice, unfortunately
showing itself by msking divorces
easier and easier, thousands of hus
bands and wives are rushing into
the courts with fancied or magnified
| grievances and demanding a free
I dom which only spells misery for
j themselves and all of us in the end.
Meeting this situation taxes the
| Ingenuity and patience of those hav
| ing authority to untie marital knots,
but who would far rather discover
I just why the knots were slipping
and apply some remedies.
I In the succeeding articles for The
Herald I will attempt to describe
some of these remedies, together
with the symptoms snd phases of
"divorcltis"?which every husband
and wife at some time has to com
bat with greater or less vigor.

DISEASED WHEAT
NOW IDENTIFIED
AS SCAB AND RUST
Diseased wheat in certain sections
of Tennes?ee and Missouri led loeal
authorities to believe that Aus
tralian "take-all" was infesting
their fields.
investigations by cereal, dlsea*
specialists of the United States
partment of Agriculture have d.
onstrated conclusively that tht <\
age to the wheat was caused
Insect ravages, scab, anthracn
and rust.
The -take-all** disease, which *
first discovered in Madison Court:]
111., has not been found els?wh?
except In Sangamon and Mas
counties. 111., and Laporte. Port1
Tippecanoe and Jasper counties. It
There have been no further disco
tries of outbreaks of th?> disease
the United States, and the Federal
specialists report that the out
breaks already located and undei
survillance will not appreciably d?
creas* the wheat crop of the cur
rent year. L?eaf rust has apr*?r. d
in many States, horn-ever and has
somewhat shadowed the almost
ideal wheat condition* early In May
according to the Bureau of Crop Es
timates.
LEMON FLAVOR
Lemon juice is more satisfactory
than lemon extract for meringues a 1
icings. In fact the fresh fruit is a'
ways preferable to the extract aa it
gives a more delicious flavoring.
