It is to be said ln favor of the cur rent fashions that men are beginning to understand women better. Some men who are quiet enough otherwise make a noise when they put on their flashy autumn overcoats. The English actors lingering In America apparently have no Idea that they may be needed in the trenches. Why should the women worry about the "obey" In the marriage service when she does all the bossing any way? LEFLORE GROCER GO. WHOLESALE miss.

She is wondering why they are not all paying attention to the most beautiful baby on earth. That British soldier who captured 102 of the enemy single-handed may not have been a my til, after all. Any way, he has been awarded a Victoria Cross and If he never really existed he would be the first decorated myth on record. Cancer Is a rich man's disease.
