A boat adrift in a whirlpool is akin to fate's handling a newly
married couple on the sea of matrimony. Wee, insignificant quarrels
easily may be likened to the whirling waters which twist and turn the
boat sometimes to send it to smoother sailing, or to whirl it so
rapidly that the craft sinks before it can right itself.
Petty quarrels grow, and false pride, greatest and oldest enemy
i)f married happiness, wrecks for all time the one real haven they
knew home
Gilbert Frankan, 1 h r novelist, believes thp seventh ypar of mar
ried life is the most dangerous "Then passion," he says, "has cooled,
and often there is nothing to lake its place. Marriages founded on
a mere whim or infatuation may lose their happiness in a year."
Others assort it is a question f age only.
"I think the 'danger y6ar' of marriage varies according to the
different classes of people," says another writer "Where the wife
m her oWn maid, the danger year, for her, iis the year the first child
is born Very often the girl-wife, now 1o the many household duties,
loud of pleasure and pretty clnthes, grows morbid because of the
great care and the necessary extra economy the baby brings. Sym
pathy nd love from hei husband tide her over and when the full
realization of life grows up6n them complete understanding, essen-
tial to married happiness, has come to them."
"Eugenics and more honesty relating to life are the most impor-j
tant factors to the ideal marriage relation," says a prominent divorce
lawyer. Judges, magistrates and lawyers seem to agree that "ignor
ance" is to blame for more divorces and separations than all other

it is better for the boy than being too considerate. There are boys
and girls who live by far too much in the atmosphere of the home and

When a judge, sitting on the bench, has submitted to him a
problem of law, he is not required to give his decision instantly nor
does he have to submit to hoots and jeers from an assembled mob
of fans in case his decision is not popular.
The judge takes his time, days and weeks, if he so desires He
listens to arguments by learned and able attorneys and often they
file with him briefs in which they hae set forth all the decisions re
lating to the points at issue
The average .ludge will decide in a year not nearly so many eases
as an umpire in a basehall game decides in the course of two hours
And the umpire must decide instantly. He has no chance to
hear arguments by the opposing teams and nobody ever files a brief
ip the case at bar He must pass on the point at issue right now and
if the decision means the winning of a ball game, as so often a decision
oes, then the arbiter is liable to be mobbed after the contest is over.
I The judge sits in court, looked up to by all and esteemed by all, j
while the umpire has no friend and everybody who has paid his' way
in is free to address uncomplimentary remarks to him.
I Yet the umpire has the harder job of the two. Because he has

any fair lawyer will make a good judge; at least as good a judge as
the average of today But good umpires are born and not made.
Not all good ball players are good umpires by any manner of means.

The female of the species is a gay bird even where the division of
the sexes is about equal, but in Vienna a provincial disposition must

Obtaining of high explosives by irresponsible should be made al
j most impossible.
But with the shipping of TNT to road work throughout the coun
ty, with no close check on the explosive, there is an opening pre

I destruction.

or to the abnormal demand

An important counteracting factor,
tending to sustain demand is the pros

Increasing commercial failures, declin

Even the iron and steel industry,
