When the rationing of the import ant food stuffs was announced re cently for that country, the following patriotic appeal was sent out by the National Council of French Women, typifying their noble spirit of endur ance. "These last months of the war will be the hardest: French women know It and bravely they will go through the necessary ordeal. They will ac cept all restrictions In order to ob tain victory which will allow their children to know the joy of life and bénéficiant peace. "Each of us must simplify lier mode of life. Deprive yourselves, economizo and you are working for your country. Let those whose mate rial well-being is assured set an exam ple to render the hard privations of the hour legg grievous to their sis ters. "Workwomen, like u«, you are weeping for dear ones, like us you hate war. It Is In order to render war impossible henceforth, that we must hold out to the bitter cud." CARD OF THANKS. The undersigned wishes to thank rel atives and friends for their kind dorv ices and floral pieces received In their recent bereavement; also Father , j Szuchy for his comforting words and : I Undertaker Thos. liurke for his sarv I Ices.

C„ April 9 — "Alligator hunting" has become the popular amusement of the U. S. Ma lines now In training at Paris Is land, S. C., near liere. While doing "police duty" on the Island a few days ago, a squad of "sea soldiers" saw what appeared to bu a gray-green log lying on the edge of a swamp. Closer investigation caused the "log' to turn, and with a mighty splash, a huge alligator lunged back into tile swauip. The Marines made a diligent searuh for the 'gator, but failed to locate it. After darkness fell, however, they returned with sticks and clubs of all sorts and proceeded to "beat up" the swamp in true alligator hunting style and finally succeeded in capturing and killing the alligator. The Incident caused a great deal of excitement about camp and now there Is an "alligator party' 'held most every night. So far three of the alligators have fallen victims to the wily Marines.

When we arrived at lier room, she kept us waiting for a half hour. Think of it, little book, that old ,νοιηαη did not know that anyone but lier son and daughtei were calling up >n lier and she kept them waiting a half hour. When we at last were admitted to iier room she seemed to sense that something serious had happened. She was all dolled up ij a lace negligee ind a ribbon and lact cap on her dyed hair, but the sight of the four of us jarred her oat of l.er complacency. Suddenly before our very eyes she grew old as she came forward and: .■latched Molly's am.. "What is it, what is it'.'" she asked, in a ten^e voice. "What ha ν ο you all, ome here to tell me?" Molly, put her arms about her and Ldck answered in tones of compas-1 aion "Mr. Trent— "Ig he dead?" she intej rupted. Dick bowed his head For a moment she looked at us dumbly and then she began to shriek. "Where is my husband, wheie is he? Why did you kill him Y Why did you not bring him to me?" Dick and Chad looked perfectly helpless while Molly and I tried to explaint matters and calm her. but she would not listen. She tore oft' her foolish little cap and clutched at the laces at her throat, as she shrieked "You all of you have killed him." What have you done with him?" It was a lonjr time befor* we could calm her enough to make hei listen to any explanation, aud when she ft nally realized that Mr. Trent had practically died under the knife, she went Into another paroxysm of hys terics. "I knew it, I knew it," she exclaim ed. "I told him over a year ago that he would not live through au opera tion." Λ\'β gazed at each other in conster nation. Was it possible that foolish old woman had persuaded her hus band not to have the knife used ovei " jfiiy?^. ΐί-ÎV1 W „ r 7l" - ' a yeai ago when it might have saved hi* life? Ju.st then it seemed to dawn upon Uer at the first time that she had been kept in ti»e dark about it all, and agKin she began to ghriek and moan. "Why did you not tell me that my deat liunhand v.a.» going to the hos pital? You have murdered him. I v>ould not ha-.e let him go had I known it." "That is just the reason why yoti were not told," cut in Jjick's voice, as cold and crisp as a steel edge. ".Mother, for heaven s sake, stop this tl.inking of yourself for a moment and listen to what I ha\e to tell you." This only made matters worse and sfce began to c ail upon heaven to witness how her children had always treated her. "If your father were alive. Rich ard," she exclaimed, "you would not be allowed to talK to me like this. Even Chad, who had been looking on with horror and disgust, smiled at this, as l>hk answered: "it is very probable that had my father been alive, you would not have been Mrs. Trent " (To be Continued.)
