Equal at Last (AjLB&l/r FRANKAU, an EriglikH; novelist, B team rating «' \J but well satisfied with himself, was sued by a firm of |j fashionable dressmakers, French, for a bill his second wife, Ij'now divorced, had run up on him. Mrs. Frankau; before she l 1 ceased to be such, put $1,325 on Mr. Frankau's tab for 5". gowns. She didn't pay and he refused to. Hence the suit in * the English courts, where once there was a decision that a i; hushand was responsible fOr mischief his wife did and the s - analogy was to a parrot;, or was it a mOrikey? If a man kept I, one, he was j-esporisible for what it did. t. Need it be remarked that times have changed? Justice 'j',McSardie, a bachelor, ruled in the Frankau case that a hus- '^band is not responsible for the debts his wife contracts. At It last', even in England, ladies are people. The wife is on equal ^i footing with the husband. She is responsible for her bills if v" she contracts them on her own. They cannot be collected <* from her husbarid if he enters the transaction only as her ft husband;- If the wife has an allowance, that is her limit. The ' husbarid is entitled to the privilege of safeguarding his funds !; against extravagance he does not himself undertake. He is J, not to be ruined by changing fashions and the desire of his f> wife to do more than clothe herself modestly. ?i The judge, although a bachelor, or because a bachelor, * ; > conceded that a lady ha's a natural background for her desire 4 to be go dressed as to attract men and force women to ad*• mire the wa yin which she did it. It was v he admitted, a para- 5 mount interest and of consequence to the vital statistics of j the nation. Nevertheless the husband retained discretion as -• to what he should spend'to make his wife attractive to other f men. Thus law vindicates its common sense andJalso releases women to full, or almost full, stature as human beings. ', " T-he complete fight for equal rihgts will be won by the womejrt when they have ben released from all possibility of getting damages in a suit for breach of promise to marry and of getting alimony. It has been a long fight, but woman; who ; was once a monkey in English law, is now a responsible s debtor,' and that's victory.—Chicago Tribune.

' •Roy Johnson Shoots a FircCracker ! .Arming himself with some big fire- trackers, ' and persuading two friends to accompany him, Roy Johnson planned a lot, of fun at the' expence of one of the "bunch" who had already gone .to'hig' -room and retired. When they arrived 'at the home of the fellow who was supposed to be slepeing the sleep of the just, Roy selected' the largest fire cracker in the lot anl after light- big it, placed it against the door and awaited' developments. They happen.. ^., -plodecJ, the door: was thrown, open, and from tiie room rusfied tHe occupant, armed -with, a "six. pistol," from, the, 'business end of which bullets were crowding each other so fast that two 'of the principal actors in this little farce promptly took stage fright and did air kinds of funny stunts. We have it on excellent authority that poor Roy was so overcome that he imagined himself a squirrel and djd his best to climb the side of the house. As for the third member of the invading party, he was not a bit frightened, for it was he who had contrived, while the preparations for Roy's fun- making-were being made, to warn his friend on the inside. And the old ada'ge that "forewarned in forearmed" was proven with a "Will." Roy finally quited ddwn.'-and has tried to forget it. But to this his friends are opposed. But whatever you do, don't give 'him any firecrackers for Christ- 'mas. He has had his. THE Board of Education at Savannah, Ga., has filed a pro- 1 test with the publisher of a current school history, protesting against the book's statement that Georgia's original settler* were largely convicts and criminals. This, very likely, will awaken the pundits and we shall have other learned discussion of what did and did not happen in Colonial days. For the innocent bystander, however, the thing is interesting chiefly as a revelation of the uniyer- 891 human desire to present one's ancestors in the best light possible. . As a matter of f-aet, very few colonial Americans, m any t>art of the country, came from the upper classes in the old Country. Thje lower classes furnished the bulk of the immigrants. It was th* m» who had ftotfting to lose at home who was most ready to try his luck in i »«w land. If Georgia received a wrober of jail birds, whafc of that? They became excellent citrus after they had londed. Jsn't that enough^ This Takes the Cake SEATTLE, Wash.—Luther G. and Ida G. Severance, who came to Seattle from New York in 1887, celebrated their 5th wedding anniversary recently. The odd feature of the celebration ,was the knife used to cut the anniversary cake. It was 200 years old, and was brought over from Scotland by the great—great-grandparents MrMs. Severance. Ex-Sheriff Held As Kidnaper Youth' Escapes Chair Over Burglary Count WINSTON - SALEM, N. C.-(/P)Francis J. Sullivan, a university graduate charged with first degree burglary in connection with the theft of $2 from the room of C. J. Williamson as the latter slept, was found not guilty by a jury of Forsyth s'uperior court. Sullivan, an ative of Charleston, W. Va., said he''had recently made his home in Raleigh.* Conviction• of first.degree burglary carries the death penalty in North Carolina. Schuyler B. Marshall, Jr., above, former sheriff of Dallas, Texas, held on kidnaping and robbery charges in Fort Worth following trie kidnaping of Elbert Farr, night watchman for a power plant at Mansfield, Fort Worth suburb. Farr was kidnaped and all the lights of Mansfield turned off by a gang which planned to rob the town's bank, of- of fleers believe. Marshall is accused of being a member of the gang.
