"I believe that a woman should bo enabled to obtain a divorce easily, with out publicity and a lot of legal fuss over It. "Just at present I have no thought of taking a third husband. I have enough of matrimony now, but I don't know when or where at some, time in the future that I may bo the victim of love and remarry. No woman or man does know when fate Is going; 'to send. him Into love with another being. And then if a life Is to bo made happy by marriage, why not marry?" Interested In Dogs. 5frs.
