But the dean of women backs ; up her assertions with actual scientific data and invites you to disprove it if you can. A husband it like a rat because they thrive on identically the same diets. For instance, if you can cook for a rat and k.-ep its eyes bright, its fur smooth and its general condition good, j you can do the same thing for a husband. When a husband -is contented he will stay home of nights and perhaps wi'.l assist with the housework. He becomes contented when he is fed on the proper diet. If you plan on feeding- your husband beefsteak, or corr.bread, or pumpkin pie. try eook-ir.c.ther.i first and try them on a rat.

The News is in receipt of a letter from Mrs. John A. Wilson, of San Bernardino, Cal., who is perhaps one of the oldest members of the News family, for she states that she has been taking the paper ever since its first issue, Mrs. Wilson writes as follows: "I am sending you a postal money order for The Fairmount News another year. I want to get it there in time for I do not want to miss a paper as I have been a subscriber ever since his paper was first printed. I am now located in southern California where there isn't a day in the year that you cannot sec the roses blooming and lots of fruit of all kinds. The grape fruit is the finest fruit I ever saw, and the oranges and lemons. The trees bear all the year around. We now have several stands of bees and the honey is much better than in the east for there are so many flowers. I came here over a year ago, but there is no place like old Indiana for me. Hoping that I will not miss a paper, ,for I always read every line of it, the want Ads, the losts and the founds, I remain as ever, a friend to The News. "Mrs. John A. Wilson, ' San Bernardino, Cal."
