storm of fury. The home was wrecked
and lost on the cruel shoals of dissipa

the skies, and the rainbow of hope,
with its irridescent colorings, had fail
ed to shine for her. A rickety shack
was now her place of abode and e
wash tub, from early morning until
late at night, was the avenue over
which came her scanty meals, while
the husband had turned to a sot and
spent his time and a part of her earn

From her chair in the courtroom the
woman gazed at the man in the dock.
She was crying bitterly site made 110
effort to hide her tears.
"My heart is breaking, Ed,1*' she said,
glancing at him once and then averting
her eyes. "Judge," she said, as s e

Her eyes traveled back td h6r hus

"Ed, I'm afraid of you," she replied
to the mute appeal she saw there.
She arose to leave the room. Her
husband approached her humbly.
"No, no, Ed." she exclaimed, I have
lost faith in you."
He shrank'back.

Martin Pojnoy came to grief last
night because the friend Who. persuaded
him to try the barefoot cure for rheu
matism neglected to explain how the
prescription should be followed.
"Walk barefoot in the grass when it
is covered with frost," said the friend.
"That will cure your rheumatism. Take
a good drink of whisky and that will
keep you from catching cold while the
cure is working."
Pojnoy tried the cure, but took the
whisky before instead'of. after his walk.
