'ugpWJU'WBl, number of business men on the wit ness stand to prove that 'he was prominent in church work and was a man of good character. The district attorney told the court thattenother women had iden tified Mendel asthe man who. had robbed them as he had the woman referred to. Undoubtedly all of the witnesses told the truth. The business men and ministers testified to the good character of the Mendel they knew, and the women told of the Mendel who had robbed them. However, it does not appear that Mendel was a good business men, even if he was prominent in church work. Had he been a good business man he would have found it easier and much safer to branch out into some business where he could rob wdmen successfully and according to Iawbypaying them starvation wages. Trying to outrage a women in a railroad ya.td and then swiping her jewelry wasn't good business. It was course work. As for the two Mendels, one the robber and the other the good Chris tian, or Jew, there's nothing unusual about that. ' Nearly every men is at least two men, or lead two lives. Some men have two homes. The news story doesn't tell what business Mendel happened to be in, but with his inclination he should have been proprietor of a big depart ment store in a large city.

The point is that Mary still owns Mary and John is still the owner of John. But did you ever notice how some folks change. their dispositions after sqme man has said the words that tie them together for better or for worse, until death do you part, etc? At that stage of the game love is a good deal like friendship. We are all particular not to go too far in self ishness in our relation with our friends. There is no legal tie, you know; and it is easy for friends to part. Each owns himself and Jhe tie is one of free will on both sides. Either may break the friendly part nership any minute he feels like it. But if often happens that when some words are mumbled over and the tie is made legally binding, so that lawyers and judges would say there was no flaw in the title of each to the other, one of the partieato the con tract goes on the assumption that he or she can go the human limit and get away with it. I sometimes think that husbands could be happy if they could be friends in spite of the fact that they are legally married. The marriage license was never in tended to be merely a legal license to fight. I give this pointer to married men: A wife makes the best pal on earth if you give her an even break and never get over being a lover.
