, Love m a Log Cabin is Experience of Brides
Who Marry Army Men and Live in Cantonments
(T OVE in a cottage" sounds very alluring. We immediately have a pic-
I . ture of a cozy little house tucked away in the trees, honeysuckle
climbing over the porch and a lazy curl of smoke coming out of the
red chimney. The chimney must be red, they always are. But, really all this
Js very obsolete. The brides of today are married on Wednesday and Thurs
day finds them far away in some cantonment camp. j
Where, oh where, could you find .the cottage tucked away in the trees,
etc., in a bustling army camp? Cupid is ingenious, however, and he will not
be oirtdone even by the war god, for behold the latest thing in the honeymoon
line fe a log cabin! Lieutenant "Billy" McHugh, who married the charming
Miss Goodrich of Buffalo a week or two ago, had hi log cabin all ready for
his bride at Deming. And in these days of conservation and economy the
most attractive feature of the cabin is the price $75, all furnished. Mr.
Hoover, please note.
The bridegroom was so very proud of his little house and when he
stopped-over to see his sister, Mrs. C. J. Baird, a day or two before his wed
ding, his enthusiasm knew no bounds. He even described a cunning set of
blue dishes that he had bought for the little home. 1
There are a number of these cabins at Deming.. There are four right in a
row, the McHugh home being one of them. Of course, the cabins are not
spacious, just two or three rooms. It would be interesting to know whether
these are all occupied by brides and bridegrooms". A real honeymoon row I

Advice to the Lovelorn,
Two School Girls.
Beatrice Fairfax, Omaha Bee. Dear Hiss
Fairfax. We are two high school girls
and have seen many questions asked and
answered,' w wish you would give us
How old should a girl be to keep company
with a boy? How late should a boy be
allowed to stay at night? Is It proper for
a boy friend whom you have gone with
several times to ask to escort you home
after church, when he didn't take you?
Does It look well for a girl to wear a ring
on her engagement finger, whan she is not
engaged? Should a couple sit on the school
house firs escape on Sunday evenings?
Please do not puMish our names. Hoping
you will give us an early reply through the
columa of The Morning Bee. We thank you
Tour mother Is the one to decide when you
are old enough to go about with young men,
I see oo wrong In letting a boy escort you
home from church even though you did rat
go with him. It Is not customary to wear
an engagement ring unless you ars engaged,
and It would not be In good taste. Surely,
boys and girls can find some other place
to converse than the school fire-escape.
Tou should entertain your friends In your
Selfish and deceitful.
Dear Miss Fairfax: I have been engaged
to a man whom I deeply love and whom- I
cannot give up. I now find he Is married,
with two children. Upon acquainting him
with my knowledge of the fact, he told me
that proceedings were In court for a di
vorce and that his married Ufe has been
He told me he became engaged to me
before his divorce because I had other suitors
and he was afraid I might become engaged
to one of them. D. M.
There ar? selfishness and deceit as the
foundations of this man's actions. He had
no right to give you the impression he was
free, no right to put you in the untenable
position in which you now find yourself
as the fiance of a married man. How do
you know that he Is ever going to be free
to marry you? How can you satisfy your
conscience that you are not a thief ot lovs
and guilty of stealing your happiness from
another woman? It seems to me, Judging
by the data you have given me, that your
best chance of happiness lies in putting out
of your life a man who has not dealt hon
estly or honorably with you or with the
mother of his children. . This may not be
advice that you will like or find easy to
follow, but I think It Is advice that will
lead you to ultimate peace.
Ask for Information.
Dear Mies Fairfax, Omaha Bee: I am
g young girl 17, I would Ilk to get work in
an orphans' bom in Fremont, Lincoln, or

nurse? What salary do they give? and
would you please give the nam and address

you for your kind sdvlce I remain
Tours respectfully, DAIST.
I would writs either to the Child's Bar

Illiterate Men Do
Our strength as a nation is lessened

of United States School Commission
er Claxton, to the child welfare con

ate men do not make good soldiers,
yet there were 40,000 of them in the
first draft. If we consider that an
illiterate man is worth even 75 per
cent as much as a literate one, think
of the reduction in efficiency which
this represents. The support of the
conference was asked in this connec
tion by Commissioner Claxton for
the Blankenhead bill, which aims at
eradicating illiteracy t least among
men of draft age by the institution
of educational classes.
Commissioner Claxton said also
that illiteracy affects -our conservation

Back in the forties, when San Francisco was twenty
days from New York and Europe was another planet,
cities were mostly interested in themselves.
Newspapers had spae only for the city hall reporter, '
weddings and other local happenings. , 1
But as American life expanded into national, and then
international compass, people demanded news from
other cities and countries. !
Arid so, in 1848, the publishers of a number of leading
American newspapers formed a mutual organization
which was named the Associated Press.
In effect, these newspapers combined their newggathering staffs,
supplying each other with the important news, each within his'
own particular territory.
Later were added special Associated Press correspondents and
foreign correspondents. Incidentally, a vast organization was
set on foot to transmit the dispatches over the telegraph wires.
From this beginning has grown the great Associated
Press of to-day. Its membership reaches into almost
every city and town of importance in the country
1,080 are on the rolls. It commands, ths services of
52,000 special correspondents, and its fcVeign corre
