Now Xiurary of Wealthy, Should be in Reach of . Every Purse. Philadelphia, July ,. 13. Divorce, should not -be a mere luxury to the wealthy, but when Justifiable should be within the reach of every purse, ac cording to Dr. Anna Shaw, the suffrage leader A. satisfactory national di vorce law, she said, could be formu lated only with the aid of women. Moreover, she declared, the.', whole problem of divorce should , be taken from lawyers and .placed under fed eral control. Divorce should not be granted on flimsy grounds, and if mar riage were made more difficult divorce would diminish, she said in a speech at iae union xjeaue. "It now costs an unnecessarily large sum for a person of either sex to ob tain, a divorce even on most sufficient grounds, thus making it virtually im possible for the poor to indulge in di vorces," she saidj "Rich persons, cn the other hand, are enabled- to break the bonds of wedlock when there is clearly no cogent cause. Such a system' is unfair. And. to whom is it attribu table? To men. The absurdities- of ex istingdivorce legislation in several states have been fostered by masculine minds,i not" by women. ' "It should be made illegal for all individuals who find life with one mate unsatisfactory ; to remarry " within a year after being divorced. I heartily disapprove of persons who are di vorced today and wed tomorrow. Mar riago is sacred and should not be abused-" - , 1 Feminism' is' wilfully , confounded with woman suffrage, she said, toy op ponents of th latter. ; "The oxtreme f emlnilsts wish to do away with our' marriage system," she declared. "They would eliminate the idea 'Of the home. Those ideas are not held, by a single suffrage leader. We are not feminists. We have one basio idea, the granting of the. ballot to women." '.

" Washington, July 1 3.-1 Americans drank less whiskey during the last twelve months than fhey did the year before, but they consumed more beer and smoked a great many more cig arettes. ' v : Reports to the Internal Revenue Commissioner show that the receipts for the fiscal year Just closed totaled $864,069' elss than for '.theV previous year, and most of this decline was due to the falling off In tax collected on distilled spirits. " ' ' In the first eleven months of the fiscal year there was a 'decrease of $3, 734,8 57 In the income from distilled liquor. Receipts from tobacco taxes show an approximate Increase over last year of $3,800,000. This1 gain is due almost entirely to a phenomenal increase in the cigarette trade. The gain, in receipts from fermented li quor, beer and ale, was about $8 60, 000. ' ' " A PERFECT CATHARTIC, : :- .There is sure and wholesome action n every dose of Foley Cathartic Tab lets.

If little j Dwight Nichol, whose f ather has a I large farm near her had never Joined . the Boys' Naturalist Club, it l would still be possible .for the Nlchol 1 family, to pet their old watch - dog, Kellie, without wearing divers' hel mets.. But, unfortunately, Dwight is a charter member of the local club. His first experiment has' been the adoption of three skunks for Nellie to mother, and the Nlchol farm no longer smells of new mown s hay. The Nlchol family has approached the problem with grave concern and averted noses. I Three weeks ago the lad found the j skunks in. the woods and at the cost of la falrlygood boys' suit brought them home with him. Nellie was busy car- ling for a little family of four puppies. and the embryonic naturalist waited ) an opportunity and placed three addi- nonai ixems in neine s no use. ; Nellie from the outset made no com- ! plaint, but in stepping clumsily over her remarkable family soon after their I arrival, she happened to s place a paw I in an indignant little .skunk s eye. J The result of this error was astound- . tag to the point of asphyxiation, .and ' in the general shuffle the little pups . whined and the little skunks con ; tinned to do anything that occurred to ' them as fitting in the circumstances. Now when the Nlchol family wish to say anything of a kindly nature to i Kellie they saw it from an upper ; window. She continues to act as moth : er to her malodorous acquisitions, but : it has been noticed that at times the old dog stands about shaking her head dolefully and apparently trying to ac count for something. I PEER PAINTS MPTON ' ' IN SARCASTIC COLORS Baron Newton Attacks Yachtsman Be nt Canteen Scandal. ' London, July 13. Baron Newton, who spoke slightingly of Sir Thomas Lip ton in the House of Lords recently, made some more sarcastic references to the owner of Shamrock IV. in that chamber today. , Lord Newton had asked the govern-, ment whether in view of the convic tion of eight civilian employes of Lip- ton's Limited, on charges of having bribed army officers to obtain canteen contracts for that firm, the War Of flee still, allowed the firm to be a con tractor for government supplies. He added, scathingly:, . ' "Instead of hearing Sir Thomas Lin ton condemned or criticized in connec tion with the canteen scandal we are daily invited to admire, him as a sort of national hero, a magnificent sports man of the true British -type and a compendium of British and all other Christian virtues. It is constantly suggested that his transcendant merits can only be adequately recognized by making him a-peer." Lord Lucas, Parliamentary Under Secretary to the War Office, replied that Lipton's LimitC'd, had been re moved from the list of contractors.

"The feeble-minded, however, are not inherently criminal except as they are easy victims of environment. The difficulty here - is in the recognizing and control of high grade feeble minded persons.
