TO MAKE DIVORCE HARDER.
As the time fur the opening of leg- I
ïslatures approaches the freak hills are i
being prepared for introduction. As is
usually the case the agitation for changes
in the divorce laws in order to make
it more difficult to obtain a divorce, is
being heard again.
The people who arc clamoring for
revision of the divorce laws' and would
make it more difficult to secure di
forces, evidently arc desirous of forcing
îbeir views upon others and requiring
men and women to live together and
maintain the marriage relation after
thc only excuse for that relation—love—

more important reforms than the mar
