After their year* of suffering, grief

pathetic example of courage to the
women of other war-atricken lands.
When the rationing of the import

patriotic appeal was sent out by the
National Council of French Women,
typifying their noble spirit of endur
"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
"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

the hour legg grievous to their sis
"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."

Marines Hunt Abators
CHARLESTON, S. 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
So far three of the alligators have
fallen victims to the wily Marines.

When we at last were admitted to

jarred her oat of l.er complacency.
Suddenly before our very eyes she
grew old as she came forward and:

in a ten^e voice. "What ha ν ο you all,

Molly, put her arms about her and

"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
