Is your duty not only t your wife and to

duty to your mother.
She was a good friend to you, the beat
you ever had. Well, be a good friend to
her now. Tak th best car of her as
long a ah live, but that la not enough.
She la Jn danger now, la danger of
cruel hat which la creeping Into her
heart and threatening her very reseea.
You must help her stamp It out, and
there's only on way to do that, move,
and move now. e
Your mother won't die if you leav her.
You'll die If yon atay with her.
Every time you are flv minute lat

"her," and every time you want to sit
and look Into the fire In peace she'll
make a scene about "that woman."
There's no Jealousy so dreadful aa the

Many women go erasy from just this

Votes for Children
By CHESTER FIRKINS.
Wo want to vote. We're here to put our bid In,
For Children's Rights, and we will get 'em, too,
This modern world' no place to be a kid In,
When older folk can tell us what to do.
If we are poor, we spend our days at labor;
If rich, our parted parents make us roam
Around the earth, or lend us to some neighbor
And yet you say the Child's place is the Home.
Show us a home we never even saw one
Sorely it's not this place you call a flat.
Or. if It is, we certainly can't draw one.
For children aren't allowed in lairs like that.
Surely it isn't Tommy Kelly's attic.
Nor Gladys Vanderaator's palace hall.
Perhaps you think this country's democratic,
But It's an elderocracv, that's all.
We have the testimony of the sages
That childish characters are good and sweet.
This may have been the truth In other ages.
But not since yon have thrust us on the street.
We're wise as any voter in the nation;
Onr sins are visited upon each dad
Back to the sixth and seventh generation .
Why can't we vote like you? We're Just as bad.
You've taken from us all our fond illusions.
We scorn the fairies and old Santa's pack.
Our games are "lacerations and contusions,"
Our playgrounds are the street and railroad track.
We want to vote like mommers and like poppers.
But here comes the polices we must be gone.
Take up the march, though. We'll defy the coppers.
Ballots for Babies' Uaaard, go-carts, on!

Since Eve tint decked herself in leaves
And made a mirror of a brook,
Her daughters all crave gorgeous clothes
If just "to see how they would look."
So when you see a girl's tired eyes
Light up in looking at a hat,
It's not all envy prompts her gaze,
But something deeper far than that.
