Will Trwin. special war correspondent of the American magazine, contributes to tin- January number of that publica tion an article entitled "Hats Off to France" in which ho devotes a large part to showing what the women are doing tor their country how they have taken hold and are doing pretty nearly every thing that their able-bodied- husbands and sons used to do. Following is a little extract from the article: "In the intervals between their other cares, the women knit-knit eternally and to lietter urpose than those Pari sian women who knitted about the guil lotine when heads were falling. Winter is coming on. it will be cold campaign ing along the great line. The boys will need warm stockings and muffler. The preat spinning districts of the north be ing in Ionium bands, the supply of yarn is tailing short. Madame is raveling her knitted articles of household adornment for yarn.

In these flays of numberless organiza tions -corking for woman's lienetlt. we often forget that much of the very liest effort is in rural America. In fact, the I first to appreciate the larger part woman is playing in nctual progress was the National grange, with over thirty thous and sulioidinute granges in forty-four j states. Kroin its lowest to its highest order woman is included. Here many practical problems of the home have been discussed and solved, lhousamls of meet ings in all parts of the country w ill be held next summer. These women are serious, practical and progressive. They have made the American home the finest thing on earth, and they are constantly making it better. In several state are agricultural and horticultural societies for women given to the vocations of the towns and farms. The National Farm Women's congress is several years old, and this year's increase in tW number of women attending the agricultural schools and colleges, especially in the tie partments devoted t home economics is unprecedented. It means new methods, new efforts and new life all through the i:ind. Woman's work is bring harnessed in science and ax-stem. Editorial, in j W omen's World for January.

Now that Switzer land has raised the point tliat, in flying over her territory, British aviators who dropped tombs on the Zepplin sheds at Friedrichsliafen violated Swiss neutrali ty, British lawyers have asked the even more novel question as to whether the recognition of air sovereignity logically involves the prohibition of wireless com munication by nations at war. In other words, if the passage of an airship through the air of a neutral country, is a violation of neutrality, how about a message sent through the air? The question, as fantasttc as it may wem, raises a nii-e point in international law one that may yet have to be thrashed out at some future conference. Great Britain expressed regret that her aviators crossed Swiss territory, but she emphasized at the same time that she did not coii'-ede sovereignity of the air to anyone. On this point lawyer dis agree. Knglish courts have held in the past that there can be no trespass where free air is concerned. In the 1'nited States, on the other hand, the city of Cleveland, '.. contested in the courts ind lost in ft iase where it erected a bridge, part of which projected in the air over the property of a tax payer. For this privilege the city was forced to pay ten thousand dollars. Brititdi legal opinion thus far voiced seems to Is' th.it the air is private or Ktate property only insofar as it is ef fectively occupied. That is to nay. ef fective occupation consists at present of domninsting the atmosphere to the limit of modern range- say seven thousand feet. "1 ca-n not see," said a lawyer, "that : country would lie guilty of a breach of neutrality if an aeroplane pass ed over it at a height toy .Mid the range of control. I hold that the air space above the globe is free to the use of the air craft of all nations, and is only subject to such rights a are required by the subjacent powers for their recctive protection sgint attack, espionage, in-f.-ction, Infringement of tiscjil rights and danger to life and property of their sub jects."

The youugest of tnese boys. Alan Redwood, was desperately In love with Lady Gludys Fellowes. second daughter of the Duke of Arnm ton. The estates were contiguous, and the young persons of the two families were thrown a great deal together. The love affair between Alan and Gladys, aged respectively twenty and seventeen, was ns natural as the mat ing of a pair of birds. Unfortunately both the earl's and the duke's estates were in a bad tinam lal condition. The former wished bis eld est son nnd the latter wtsbed Uis daughters to marry wealth. As for the younger sons, they were supposed to shift for themselves. The duke ab solutely forbade any union between Gladys and Alan. and. indeed, such a marriage was uext to impossible, for there was no Income on either side. Alan concluded to go to America, and bis father gave him enoncu money to get there nnd have left a few Hundred pounds to keep him till he could bt'in to earn a living. It was a sad part ing between titru and Gladys, Ixitli te ing sensible that they must drift apart. Alan took passage on a sail ship and alter a mouth on the ocean reached America. He never wrote a line to uny one after his arrival, and In ilu.- time be seemed lost to bis family and former associates. l ive years after he left England tho Crimean war came on, and his next older brother, who was an officer lo the llritl.-li army, went there with his regiment and died of disease In the. ircnc-he before Sebastopol. During the war the oldest brother broke his neck In a fall from hU horse while foi hunt ing This left Alan heir to the title. Inquiries were made in America for him. but nothing could te learned from him. Itut a record was found f the death of an Alan or Allen Itedwood In New York who bad come from some where else and lived alone, and papers were executed to show that the direct heir to the title of Earl of A tte. bor ough 'a dead. A cousin who was next of kin ton!. posesion of the tttl and estates, but found tho finances In such poor condition that he liihcrited an empty honor.

A goodly sum was realized, and the oth ers took their turns. Lastly Lady Gladys stood up before the assembly. A rich cotton spinner wbo bad learn ed of the duke's necessities and had loaned him money started the bidding with T00. This man. MacCormack. ' was trying to put the duke under sucti obligations that he would consent to give him Lady Gladys In marriage. A man In the garb of an American miner ! woolen shirt, sombrero and boots to his knees-raised the cotton spinner's bid 100. The cotton spinner went up a hundred more, and It was not long before these two were climbing over each other a hundred pounds at a time till the miner raised the otber 1.(XI0. At the price it would tost 5.000. or S23.0OO. to dance the flrt dance with the lady. .Since the cotton spinner bad not much hope of getting her in mar riage he retired from the contest, and the privilege was knocked down to the i miner. I Cries were now heard. "Unmask!" and the successful bidder advanced to the front of the dais and removed his luce covering. Lady Gladys started. . "A stranger!" I "Who Is he?" "Give your name!" These were some of the cries that came from all parts of the room. The stranger, turning, faced the crowd and cald: ' "I am Alan Itedwood. earl of Attes borongh."
