Insisted two Dresses and Coat

New York. Aug. 5. "I don't
really blame Charlie for anything,
He' an artist, and artists, I sup
pose, must have their, tempera
tnents." ' : '
Thus Mildred Harris Chaplin,
wife of the film famous Charli
C.'haolin of the custard Die. excused
her husband for the "unspeakable
mental suffering ana anguisn sne
says he caused her, which hare led
her to sue. for divorce in Los
Antreles. She is in New York

Mrs. Chaplin laughed. In a way,
however, it was a wistful laugb,
Promised Her a Limousine.
"You should hear about- my
limousine." she said. "It was the
brightest tfhing 1 had to look for
ward to during the long days in
the hosnital. where I Was recuoer
ating after my baby Was born. I
was to go home in it Charlie had
promised I should have a limousine
and I had visions of nothing less
than a Rolls Royce. When I got
to the door there, instead, was an
old second-hand rtand-me-down
that Charlie had swapped in a
studio car for. I went home in the
thing and he wasn't even interested
enough to come tor me or to De
at the house when I arrived.
iYou know, though, Charlie had
socialistic tendencies and -insisted
upon thrusting them on ; me." she
confided. "He told mc two dresses
and a top coat were enough for .me
and should last tfto years. One auto
mobile in a family was enough, he
said, and he always managed that
cne for himself. The result was
that I used taxis and then he was
furious about the bills.
Was Always Gloomy. s
"He always hurt my feelings ter
ribly. Any time he thought I was
looking forward to any occasion
with happiness he'd promptly douse
my gsry spirits.
"I've always had a Christmas tree.
I fixed one Christmas. Christmas
morning when I took down the
presents, I was breathlessly expect
ant There was nothing to me from
Charlie. When I cried, he said he
knew I'd be expecting something
and he didn't think he should givl
it to me.
"I was just 17 when we were mar
ried, October 22, 1918. -He was 31.
I guess I had been spoiled. I was
my mother's only child and she al
ways dressed my hair and did every
thing for me.
Socks Were Full of Holes.
"Charlie wasn't only stingy with
me- He would have been in rags
himself if I hadn't looked after him
and bought things for him with my
" own money. I don't think he had a
decent pair of socks when w were
married, and his shirts and under
things and pajamas were frightful,
all full of holes and tears and rips.
Mother looked after all that and
when she had kirn fixed up he was
delighted. N
"I'll be in New York indefinitely
and I'm sorry I'm-just 19. I think,
perhaps, I'dsbe better off if I, too,
were 31."

No Labor Scarcity.
Through this redon there is no
farm, labor scarcity. Around Aber
deen the farmers have by a sort of
common consent fixed on 50 rents
an hour for labor, as agamst 70
and 80 cents in Kansas. A daily
wage of $5 seems to be the usual
mark, $2 or $3 below the pay in
some other places. In some cities,
such as Brookings, employment of
fices had to be opened to get jobs
for men instead of men for jobs.
The farmer here seems ro be reach

Five Vessels Patrolling Waters
Of Miami, Fla., Bay, Upon
.. Orders of President
Washington, Aug. 5. Five a
stroyers are patrolling the entrance
to the' Miami (Fla.) harbor under
orders from President Wilson to
prevent, by force if necessary, the
landing of a cable the Western
Union Telegraph i company is hav
ing laid from Barbados, a British
possession in the West Indies.
A British cableship, the Colonial, .
has been chartered by the company
to land the cable, which would con
nect with a British cable line from
Barbados to South America. At the
State department it was stated that
the British embassy had been asked',
to inform the master of the 6hip
that such a landing would violate
American laws. Officials explained
there was no significance in the
fact that the vessel was British, but
it probably was the onjy cable craft
available to the company. Wock '
on the cable was begun last sum
mer. Some time ago the Western Union
company applied to the State de
partment for a permit to land the
wire at Miami, but officials said ac
