Fie loved to swing tc «nd fro for hours at n time, and loudly protested if anything occurred to Interrupt his pleasure, according to his wife, Mary. She says he would climb into a hammock at any time or place providing the hammock was strong enough to hold him—he weighed "something" over 200! In the early days of the married life of Albert and Mary Hodges the former swung in his hammock as long and as often as he desired. There was little said about the matter, for / L.0U Mrs. Hodges was working for her Wfr —— ■ ' — ■ -— —I K== r husband. Besides the housework, she 1—*• says she did a great many things for ,hlm. Albert was told that man must expect life on earth to be one round of pleasure. Mrs. Hodges was offered a position ns manager of a West Side hotel. She accepted the position and the first j>erson she engaged was her husband, making him janitor of the in stitution. About the first thing that he did after taking over the duties of Ills now Job was to sling up his hammock on one of the front porches of the hotel and climb into it. Mrs. Hodges found him and the hammock, and immediately ordered the husband to the rear. "I didn't care so much about the hammock being slung up In the rear of the place, but I didn't want it in the front," testified Mrs. Hodges in her suit for divorce. "What happened after you ordered the hammock removed?" asked Judge Tucker. *T removed it," she said. "But he was so angry that he struck me." Mrs. Hodges testified that her husband never contributed anything to her personal support. "Didn't he give you any money for clothes at nR?" asked the court. "No, how could he when he was in the hammock all the time?" she asked. Jealous Rage Responsible for Double Murder L OS ANGELES.—Jealousy, whipped to white heat by an overheard tele phone conversation, led to the killing of Mrs. J. D.

Yet the fight must have Offer Fine Estates for Convalescent Hospitals N EW YORK.—Rich Americans are following the example of wealthy men of England and France by offering their estates to the government as con valescent hospitals for wounded soldiers. The army medical department has alrendy approved Ferncliffe, at Rhine cliff, N. Y., home of Vincent Astor, and has under consideration offers of other estates near this city. When fully equipped for their new purposes the country estates will re ceive wounded American soldiers from a great receiving hospital which the government is to build somewhere on Staten island. At the convalescent hospitals the wounded men will have the entire use of the vast estates. Sta bles. gymnasiums and other outbuild ings, It Is understood, are included In the offers which the owners of palatial homes have made to the government. It is expected that the government, in a short time, will announce the acceptance of the Vincent Astor estute at Rhlnecllff. Another home which has received the favorable attention of the medical department of the army is Drumthwackett, the M. Taylor Payne home near Princeton, N. J. It is also known that James Speyer is considering turning over W aldhelm, his estate at Scarborough, N. Y., to the government for the period of the war. Ferncllff, the Vincent Astor home, is one of the most desirable sites In the country. The estate overlooks the Hudson and is valued at $8,000,000. Vincent Astor, who is now In foreign service ns an ensign In the Naval Re «erve, Inherited the estate from his father, Col. John Jacob Astor. At the beginning of the war Vincent Astor gave his yacht Mona to the government. He is now serving aboard that vessel. 'mu Determined to "Do His Bit" in Liberty's Cause S AN FRANCISCO.—John Stranlx, longshoreman, residing with his wife and baby here at 1124 Gough street, was made Jubilant by notification that hi persistent endeavor to become a soldier had been successful. When Stranix applied for enlistment at the British recruiting headquarters a physician subjected him to physical examination and said he was visually defective and unfit to serve in the army. Disap pointed, but not discouraged, he haunted the headquarters until at last another doctor "looked him over" and opined he might be eligible for some branch of the service in which perfec tion of vision is not an absolute neces sity. ____ This difference of scientific opin ion Interested Capt. F. L. Goord, who sent a report of It to Maj. G. B. Hall, chief of the Canadian army medical corps at Victoria, B. C„ and the major responded that he would not object to Stranix being enlisted in the forestry branch of the service. Hence the jubilation of Stranix. He is a native of Lurgen, Ireland, served seven years in the British navy, had one of his eyes permanently injured while at work In the famous ship jtrd of Harland & Wolff, at Belfast, and came to California five years ago glnce then he has been employed along shore. "My wife and I talked over the idea of my enlistment," he told Cnptnir flaord, "and she agreed with me that it is every white man's duty to do hit hit ha tMs war." Americans Must Make Sacrifices That Are Demanded By Great War By JEANETTE RANKIN, Congresswoman from Montana It is a misguided patriotism that believes direct action lias a place in civilized society. 1 have no patience with that spirit that seeks to destroy property to satisfy personal grievances, or with the thought that direct action can right existing wrongs. The man who destroys a grain field is taking broad from a hungry child. The burden of waste always rests heaviest on those least able to stand the strain. Nor have I any patience with that spirit which seeks to destroy the truth by printing false and mis leading statements. Those character assassins who would poison the minds of their fellow men with falsehoods are most aggravated traitors. Always bear in mind that the greatest, the most liberty-loving nation in the world is engaged in war—in the most tremendous conflict recorded In history, and we must all put our shoulder to the wheel and strive to make a greater and fuller democracy. War spells sacrifice—none can escape its far-reaching effects. The effort of all right-thinking people is to sacrifice as little as possible of the constructive principle, and to be most generous with all things which will protect life and reduce suffering. It is easy to estimate the casualties of tlie battlefield, but the casual ties of the home in wartime remain uncounted and unreported. The young manhood of this country is bearing the brunt of this conflict—that manhood which is offering its life lias and always will have the respect of the people of America. For theirs is the greatest sacrifice. We must spare nothing to save as many of their lives as possible. ] Employers Should Educate Boys Forced to Quit the Grade Schools By ALFRED RONCOV1ERI, Superintendent of San Francisco Public Schools Public education is to maintain and improve the standard of citi zenship. When a hoy leaves school without finishing his elementary school course, the permanent welfare and happiness of that child is threatened. But economic conditions sometimes force children to leave school to help make a living for those at home, themselves included. They should he allowed at least one hour every day in a continuation school until they are seventeen or eighteen years of age, at the expense of their employer. In such schools the mathematics and sciences, and any other subjects that are allied to his vocation would be taught the hoy. The worker who increases his technical knowledge not only renders himself a more effi cient workman, making his products more marketable, hut is on the road to promotion and higher pay. The experts in craft owe their success to technical education. The time has come for a boy to rebel at the modern tendency to make him a small, insignificant cog in the wheel of industry, and to he thus oonverted into human machinery. The great captains of industry, through the complex machinery which American genius has for the most part invented, use our hoys as mere tools to feed this machinery. It is only too true that the apprentice who learns his trade under our modem system usually learns only a single part of it and knows little or nothing of other processes involved in the trade as a whole. He has become an automatic part of the "machine" on which he is working. The man who does not understand the science of hisstrade and whe feeds the machine is the modern "man with the hoe," hopelessly bound to it and the weak object of attack in the constant war to lower his wages. He is most apt to be thrown out of employment in times of depression. Such men are hopelessly handicapped in the struggle for better wages aird conditions because captains of industry hold thcm'as slave workers in one part of the trade. It is an economic shame that our children must sometimes drop out of school before completing the grammar course, but if they must, let us insist that the classroom follow them to the shop insofar as it can be made to. Millions of Acres of Land Worthless Because not Properly Utilized By DR. L. E. EVANS Hemd of Colonization Department, Grand Trunk Pacific Railroad The thing we should consider at present should he; What can we do for the future? How are the people going to get out of the soil the greatest amount of value for the greatest length of time, and what the soil and different locations, according to the topography of the country and the climatic conditions, are best suited for? It should be made easy for a man to know where to look for certain lands that are good for certain productions and be from an authoritative and reliable source and not from a speculative standpoint only. Now, this should be taken up through organizations that make a special study of the topography and climatic and soil production valuations of each separate district. There is one industry that has been so sadly neglected, and is today becoming only a remnant of the original greatness—that of stock raising—through ignorance of distribution of lands properly adapted to stock raising. There are today millions and millions of acres of upland, plateaus and hillsides for summer and winter grazing that arc good for nothing else, but worthless at the present time, simply because 6tock must have water in great abundance and sufficient agricultural land adjacent to it for the re fing of a certain amount of winter feed. But through careless legislation the watering places and the rich little val leys tributary and necessary to the perpetuation of the stock-raising propo sition utilizing these beautiful upland summer and grazing fields have been allowed to be taken, promoted and sold for fruit and truck garden ing purposes, while they are hundreds of miles away from the market of such commodities, and when there are thousands of acres already proven to be more valuable for such purposes and good for nothing else. And it seems a pity that these lands could not he in some way procured and again attached to the useful grazing lands to be used to produce win ter feed end water placet TRAGEOY Roses Stolen From Chicago The ater Found Right Spot After All. SOLVE DEEP MYSTERY Three Detectives' Work Several Days on Case, When They Find the Culprit—the Hat Is Passed for Real Flowers. Chicago.—Folks who went to the La Salle theater the other night saw a comedy. Upstairs in the office of Nat Royster, the manager, a tragedy was being enacted.

Miss Dowling slipped out and returned with n hnndful of real flowers. "For Johnny," she said, and wiped her eyes. The serubwomnn fearfully asked if she could go. Royster requested her to stay. He left the room for a few minutes and he saw Daly, the prop erty man ; Charlie Heede, in the box office; Bob Goruing, the superintend ent; the stage hands, the ushers, the doorman, the cigar store man next door, and the cafe fan next door, and when he returned he handed $00.35 to Mrs. Korab. "For Mary," he said. BEAR HUNTS THE HUNTERS Misses Men in the Fog and Is Shot, White Mate Escapes the Bullets. Newton, N. J.—James N.
