Here's a Well-Deserved Rebuke
TO THK candy maker* of Milwaukee who wanted Mate pn
mission to work poorly paid K irl «niploy» morc ,I,an 10
hours daily during the busy before-Christmas season. Wiscon
sin's industrial commission jutifies its refusal by a number of
powerful reasons, but none of grenter cogency than in its
"That higher pay will reduce the help problem
by attracting more and better help, and that improved
working conditions and better pay will advance the
quality of the finished product."
The commission also jioints out that an extension of the
hours of labor in the end would result in fatigue and inrffi
ciency not only for the peri.nl of overwork, but for all the rest
of the vear. After reminding the Milwaukee employers how
strain, accidents, disease, sterility, puny children, miscarriage"
and stillbirths result from exhaustion due to long hours, the
commission says
"Our stock producers long since learned how to
treat the mothers of the flocks and herd*. 1 hey aie
more considerate of the dumb brutes than we are of
the mothers-to-be of the human race.
What a rebuke to careless greed! And to think that, at
this late day in the progress of civilization, in the full flower of
widespread intelligence, such a ruling should be necessary!
In the childhood of the race, way back in the dawn of
history, one of the kings of Egypt forced 100,000 subjects to
work 20 years piling high a granite pyramid intended as an
eternal token of his might. But pagan though he was pagan
and despot—he worked grown men, not undeveloped women
There was something impressive in this ambition of the
Pharaoh, severe though its incidence was upon the bent backs
of his sweated subjects. It at least secured to remote ages the
•tory of his reign.
No such majestic excuse is possible in behalf of the mod
ern exploiters of girlhood. Their names will not be handed
dowji the ages. Their motive is the sordid one of passing
The Worst Crime of 'Em All
MOTHER love is the finest treasure life offers Rut not
all mothers possess it. Some are selfish, vain, cruel
"There, my day is spoiled," a young mother exclaimed
one morning, when baby began to cry.
And instead of cuddling the weary little one and croon
ing it the soft songs which fall upon baby nerves like a
benediction, this selfish mother began to fret and to scold
and to work up a temper.
She actually believed, this foolish mother did, that baby
cried just for spite.
It was this same mother who, a short time before, wish
ing to enjoy a vacation with sailing and dancing, turned babv
over to a hired nurse and went away to the shore for a fort
right as indifferent to her duty as if baby had never been
There are mothers like that. Fortunately few, but enough
to warrant preachment on the rights of childhood.
Do you realize as you should that it i* not merely the
privilege but the RIGHT of a child to be petted and loved?
That the man or woman responsible for bringing a little
life into the world commits treason to the race if shirking its
tendcrest care?
By petting we don't mean spoiling.
Children can, of course, be spoiled; and the spoiled child
is an even sadder sight than the neglected or abused child
For spoiling is rarely undone, while neglect and abuse some
times are overcome by the kindness of others
If the good Ix>rd has sent into your home and arms the
infinite blessing of a dear little babe, don't be so silly as to
imagine that the care is a curse.
On* strident grasshopper in the angle of the fence makes more

We Make Apology to Our Readers
WE HASTEN to make apology to our readers, who have
an undoubted right to our keeping them posted on high
Pf>ciety events, but, fact is, we've been so interested in the ri-<c
of bacon and the new tariff's possible effccts upon the importa
tion of diamonds, that we entirely missed the following, from
Cannes, France:
"Miss Virginia MacVeagh, of New York and St. Paul,
step-daughter of Frederick Ogden de Billier, was married last
week to Marquis Agostino Ferrante di Ruffano. The witnesses
for the bridegroom were Marquis Fmmanuelle Filiosi and
Don Marino Filomarino Tomacell."
It isn't often that an item so splendidly garnished with
Marquises and dons gets bv us, and it is distressing to realize
that neither Ruffano, Filiosi nor Tomacelli gave us any inti
mation as to what was to be pulled off. We simply had no
suspicion that a cuckoo of a girl who could be from both
New York and St. Paul had gone gunning for a marquis in
Southern France. It is reprehensible remissness, and we be
tpeak for ourselves the pardon of the reader.
