The women, the bulk of the small farmers anil the churches in both nations were strong for dry laws. So also were Ihe Finnish cily workers. But with them It Is a matter of political strategy. The workers are mainly Socialists ov Communists, ajid hate the middle classes which are wet. Heiic^ they are dry.

Subtitled, the book might bear the caption, "How to Fight Duels Correctly." Volume Me. 2. which should be captioried. "How to Fght Duels anil Win." is net in Dr. Dunbar's library. "If yon have been insulted in public, by words or behavior of another, do not resent It there, if you have the self-command to avoid It." the author cf "Code Duello" cautions. "If resented there you offer In indignity to the company, which you should not do." Prescriptions fcr duels of every occasion are offered. U is suggested that letters may be offered, demanding apologies, providing the challenge must be accepted, seconds should be carefully chosen, "Cede Duello" suggests.
