Onco upon a time, Elizabeth Fry,

Mrs. Fry had

that everything we do In life we do for

The series of terrible accidents that have
curred on American warships In the last
twenty-five years would fill a column. An
endeavor to get such a list from the War
department or the Navy department In
Washington failed naturally.
Governments no longer exl.st for the
purpose of robbery, exploitation and an
nexation. It Is simple a matter of busi
ness, and so Intimately are the affiirs
of all nations connected that well has It
been said that If Germany should In
vade Great Britain and loot the Hunk of
England It would break every bank In
This war spirit Is fostered by the men
who thrive through the manufacture of
warships and the sale of war supplier,
and also through the fact that Vo are
constantly educating men In the, business
of war, and for the most part these men
are Inefficient in productive work.
If the eight great political powers that
now control the world would get together
on a business basis and eliminate this
unnecessary wasto and risk of terrible
accidents that follow through being pre
pared for murder, the men who bring
about the betterment would rank In his
tory with the saviors of the world. Some
day It surely will be done. Why not now?

that any cfrort has ever been made to
mark tho graves of the women who rode
out from civilisation in a mover's wagon
nd died of privation and suffering on
The number of these graves on the
plains Is legion, and In the early days
they marked a trail conneotlng the middle
west with the Pacific, coast, telling a
ghastly story of what woman had done
In the coiuiuest of the desert.
The spectacular cry of race suicide,
sent up by men who don't bear the
babies, was unknown' In those clays,
and every mover's wagon carried babies,
and when a destination was reached and
a home was dug, the babies kept coming
and the women Who had survived thi

The demand on their love and courage
often proved too great for -even the
superhumau strength of a mother, and
statistics show that nine pioneers out
of ten had two or three wives and many
had four or five.
With the fruits of hor labor left for
future' generations of women' to garner,
those who had borne the brunt of the
battle passed away to a woman's heaven
of rest, and. when their descendants canio

The Fable of the Wise Dame
