Poorer Class Must Face During Conflict. LONDON, May L-War falls heav ily on the poor. Food and coal have steadily advanced in price and many husbands and fathers have gvien up comparatively fair wages for a shil ling a day and the king's uniform, witli only a small government allow ance for the support of those left be hind. Typical examples of the strugglies of soldier's dependents havo been published in one of the Loudon news papers. In one case a soldier's wife says Uiat where she previously paid I $3.15 for living expenses for one week, she now pays nearly $5.00. ! Rent now costs her 85 cents a week, food $1.75 and the remainder goes to ! various benefit clubs and for other expenses. But between the govern ment allowance, her husband's com muted a|ay and the work she gets from the Queen's Needlework guild hy making shirts for soldiers, sho ls I able not only to put a shilling a week Into the bank but another one aside for a clothing fund. Among this womun's weekly items ls a shilling to a feather club, which she exp'-ins as follows: "I am in a feather club to get a lancer plume which will cost 15 shil lings ll pence ($4). If you don't I wear a good hat in Whitehorse Lane, they say you are coming down in the world, and I don't won't them to think that. Also, a nice hut makes you feel young, and really I am only very young. I always try to look .dean and decent" Another story comes from a labor er' wife, who has one son in the army and two sons, aged respectively 13 and two years at home. Her income is 15 shillings a week from her hue hand, two shilling sixpence from the lididxs' association and the same from the 13 year old boy when work ing and four shillings earned by her self at shirt making, altogether 24 shillings or $6.00 dollars. Bread, she says, is their heaviest expense, since they use four loaves* a day, costing $2.20 a week. Rent comes to $1.25 altogether and mere cost of living leaves only a few peo nies out of the weckl income. Meat in the form of a stew ls a luxury for Sundays. Bread and margarine is the main fdoo ot the; family. Her story continues : "I spend nothing on myself. I Son't remember when I had any new clothes. I don't belong to any feather clubs. I am too old for that-I'm 40. Some tlmea tile children run errands and get a penny to spend on the moving pictures. They like the cow boy films. My husband works very long and very bard, but allows him self only three pence (6 cents) a day ? for outside mc H "m. He has no money to go anywhere, so he goes to bed. I have plenty of work to do. I don't <now what business mea>it>. My wed ding ring went a long time ago for bread, and now I wear a braes one. But Oie hardest thing to bear is when a lady visitor asks me why I don't pul something away for a rainy day." o o o o o o o o o o o o i? o o ?I o o a LOWNDE S VILLE NEWS. o o i> o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o Mr. C.

DRUGGISTS FEEL EFFECTS OF WAR COLOGNE, May L-Because of the large number of druggists and phar macists who have gone to war, the proprietors of Blores in Cologne and Ita auburba bave decided to evolve an alternate Sunday holiday and night service so that their long hoars of service may be cut down. Hereafter the various atores will take turns in shutting up at 2 o'clock on Sundays and at 9 o'clock on week day evenings. When a store does close up at these hours, however, a sign will be left at tho door indicating wnere a would-be-customer may find a' drug store open. The war han left the druggists who have remained In Cologne pushed to the limit. KIQft.Y itAJUfci A Striking Example of the Peculiar Advantages Secured Under the Policy Contract of The Mutual Benefit Life Insurance Co., of Newark, N. J. Tulsa, Okla., Mar. 16, 1909. Mr. A. D. Young, Agent, .Mutual Benefit Life Ins. Co., Tulsa, Oklahoma. Dear Sir: Please accept my sincere thanks for your company's check for $10.000 which ia now received, just ten days after the papera were sent In. My husband took thia insurance last summer, the policy being-dated July 14, 1908. with premiums payable semi-annually. He paid the first semi-, annual premium but did not pay the second which was due on January 14th of thia year, and told me that the policy had lapsed. He died quite suddenly on March 1st, and I was greatly surprised to learn from you that by the non-' forfeiture provisions of his policy lt was kept in force aixty dgya after the second payment waa due, and that as he had died within Ulla time the policy waa atill in force and would be paid In full. Thia baa now been done and I realize how very fortunate lt waa that Mr. Friend had this policy In the Mutual Benefit, tile only company that I know anything about which would have paid anything under circumstances. Very truly your?, JULIA A; FRIEND. Mr. Friend's policy had lapsed for non-payment of the second half of tho first year's premium, January 14. 1909. Under the non-forfeiture provision of his contract, however, the Insuranco waa automatically extended for 60 days, to March 14. When Mr. Friend died therefore the claim was paid. As beneficiary, Mra. Friend received only what was due her under the writtnu contract, yet under the policy contracts of other componte* she would not have received a cenL Avoid regrets by investigating thc Mutual Benefit The Mutual Benefit Life Insurance Company la old. true and tried, and has earned the title THE LEADING ANNUAL DIVIDEND COMPANY.
