Wlien divorce is granted, the court seldom. If pv , rr « quires bond for proper raising of the children, or My ' nity against the state's being forced to care for them.

Why not take from the fellow who "buys his freedom in the divorce court, is often the case, a little alimony for the taxpayers who have to support Mate institutions for the reform of victims of divorce ?

Yes, indeed, Christmas is coming. Shop early. So far. Bill Taft hasn't expressed surprise that he got l»ny electoral votes. Really now, don't-chc-know, Sir Thomas had no thought of advertising his tea. The "original Wilson man" is already a regiment. How the world loves a winner. Our idea of misdirected energy is trying to bold down jrour wife's Christmas expenses. Turkey cries peace but there is no peace in sight for the poor critter until after November 28. Grocer reports to police that his wing has vanished. As though that's not the ultimate fate of wine. And otir idea of well-directed energy is sending a good fat turkey to Mother Ryther's children's home.
