Married Women Must Work.
As long as women workers stop
work at marriage they will continue
to be. as a class, low-paid, over-worked
unskilled, looking only to the day and
never to the future, entering Industry
casually without training, retiring
from It unexpectedly without warning,
hard to organize Into trade unions,
hard to Interest In technical Improve
ments, hnrd to Inspire with financial
ambition, behaving, In every respect,
with the utmost good sense. Just ex
actly In the manner In which any
class of admittedly and consciously
temporary workers should behave. It
Is hard to believe that such a filia
tion can be right either for women or
for Industry. The women lose oppor
tunities. Industry loses abilities.

When fie body was brought alongside
the lobes of the flukes were cut off
and lifted to the deck. Then a long
coll of small rubber hose, one end of
which was attached to a pump and
the other to a hollow, spear-polnted
tube of steel with perforations along
Its entire length, was brought Into
play. The spear was jabbed well down
Into the whale's side, the air pump
started and the body slowly filind with

It afloat the tube was withdrawn tho
