Since the new law went into effect
July 26. raising the age of majority
of a girl from eighteen to twenty
one years there have been a number
of instances of confusion in the state
ever the technical application of the
law as to a girl's marriage without
her parent's consent. A case arose a
few days ago in Hitchcock county
when a young lady who was eight
een before the new law went into
effect appeared before the county
judge as one of the principals ask
ing for a marriage license. The ques
tion at once arose as to the necessity
of parental consent. Assistant Attor-,
ney General C. J. Dort 'ruled that
she did not need the parental con-;
sent for since she was eighteen be-'
fore the new law was effective she ;
is of legal age now and cannot be

to serve another three years ap

A Grateful Letter
It is in trying conditions like that
related below by Mrs. Geo. L. North
of Naples, N. Y., that proves the;
worth of Chamberlain's Colic and I
Diarrhoea Remedy. "Two years ago)
last summer," she says, "our little
boy had dysentary. At that time we
were living in the country eight miles
from a doctor. Our son was taken ill
suddenly and was about the sickest
child I ever saw. He was in terrible
pain all the time and passed from one
convulsion into another. I sent my
husband for a doctor and after he
was gone thought of a bottle of
Chamberlain's Colic and Diarrhoea
Remedy in the cupboard. I gave him
some of it and he began to improve
at once. By the time the doctor ar
rived, he was out of danger."
