Again our Sunday school has
been called upon to mourn the
loss of one of its sweetest little
members, in the death of little
Helen Martin, who was called to
her heavenly home January 13,
1904. In the very budding of
this little life she has passed
away in perfect peace. Our love
for this little friend demands
that some expression of our loss
be made in our school.
Be it resolved, That as a Sun
day school we deplore the loss of
this little member, and to her*
devoted parents, little brothers
and sister we extend our sympa
thy and prayers in this, their
greatest of earthly afflictions.
Further resolved, That a copy
of this memorial be sent the
family and spread upon our Sun
day school record.

“There are many curious and inter
esting tacts regarding the marriage
and divorce laws of foreign countries,"
said R. J. Brown, who, reports the In
dianapolis News, recently returned
from a trip abroad, where he made &
study of the question.
"Breaches of promise are averted in
Hungary by an express declaration of
the civil marriage act (1895) that the
relations created by a betrothal do not
give the right to command the con
clusion of a marriage, but if either
party withdraws from an engagement
without just reasons he or she is
bound to grant compensation to the
extent of the outlay incurred. Divorce
in the English sense does not exist,
but the courts can decree the personal
separation of a married couple with
j out dissolving the bonds of matrimony.
“A curious law prevailing in France
! provides that, before being married,
i children of a family, although over
age, shall seek in respectful and formal
j terms the advice of their father and
mother. It makes no difference, how
ever, whether the consent of parents is
given, for the couple can be married a
month after under any circumstances.
This is also the case in the Nether
“A divorce further entitles the in
nocent party to recover all the pres
ents he or she may have made.
“According to the constitution of the
Netherlands, the civil marriage must
always precede the religious ceremony.
The latter, indeed, is left entirely to
the conscience of the parties concerned.
There is also a law providing that no
man or woman under 30 can marry
without the consent of parents. If the
consent be refused the couple have to
appear before a judge, who advises
them as he thinks best.
"Many countries have now abolished
all marriage fees. This is the case in
Norway, while in the Netherlands cer
