ISN'T IT AWFUL? A Maryland
court of appeals has rendered a deci
sion, which if it sticks in the court
of last resort, will simply raise cain
in the select society circles of that
state. It makes a divorce, granted in
Nevada, or in any other state of tem
porary residence, void- Just think
how this will mess things up for, no
felling how many, Manyland couples;
close to a hundred in Baltimore alone.
In the first place, it makes all those
who have remarried bigamists, but
that we can overlook, for their inten
tions were good tho' their execution
was poor. But now if they keep on
being "remarried" they are liable to
get muchly talked about.
The thing to do, of course, is to
permanently forsake their Maryland,
chase out to Reno, where the six
months' law is on again, andVdo it
all over, start anew, be Reno-vated,
as it were. But supposing, just sup
posing, that some of them fell down
on their divorce stunts this time, or
that some of the re-divorced men and
the re-divorced women got crazy
about each other and didn't go back
home at all, or that Great Scott! it's
too filled with dread possibilities to
talk about. Somebody ought to Os
lerize those judges quick. They de
ALL ARE AFTER IT. The Ameri

facture of 2,500,000 shrapnel and
high explosive shells and forseveral
million cartridge cases.
We suppose the next thing we hear
will be that the sewing machine con
cerns are turning out rapid-fixers. It
may be bloody money, but they all
want some of it, all right. i
