Chronic fesstritis sometimes called
chronic "catarrh" of the stomach
lining Is no more a definite diag-
nosis than is chronic "catarrh" of
the nose or throat. "Catarrh" is not
a disease entity but signifies any
inflammation of a mucous membrane
under any condition. Taking medi-
cine for "catarrh" is therefore a sor-
ry experiment for the victim of tho
error. A catarrhal Inflammation
must be Investigated by the physi-
cian to determine what cause Is at
play and treated accordingly. Even
"catarrh" of the nose or throat is as
variable as regards cause and treat-
ment as is measles and diphtheria.
Acute gastritis; is usually caused
by a corrosive poison accidentally or

in the bopo of making it popular is
a thirty-day sentence Imposed by Na-

November is a month which would
liko to become winter but which
hasn't quite got the nerve. It i3
usually composed of ten rainy days
ten cloudy days and ten snowy days
or freezing days w ith a pinch of sun-
shine between the various divisions.
It is useful because it Ef-kes Decem-
ber seem pleasant in comparison.
In Novemoor the trees finish dis-

coal bill pretty soon you will have
to go to bed to keep warm. A No-
vember wind is more pesnmis'.ic
than anything on earth except a
Wall Street operator during z spasm

November wa3 invented by tho
Romans who did so many terrible
things in the early Christian era. It
was so named because it was tho
ninth month at that time. Tho
growth of business has compelled tho
addition of two more months since

very popular because it is easier to
keep warm in a football game than
it is in a house where the furnace is

ber is a game to decide Vnether the
player will dent the ground or the
ground will dent the player. Tho
ground usually wins. Corn husking
and riding to the polls in an opposi-
tion carriage are also two popular
outdoor sports during this month.
There is nothing more talkative than

' There are three great uses for the
month of November. It kills ma-
laria flies and political campaigns.
None of thesa arc able to survive the
climate of this month. If it were
not for November political cam-

Christmas and entail vast suffering
among the rich. Most of our public
officials are elected in November but
we cannot justly blamo the month
November wac first put prominent-
ly on the map by the Pilgrim fathers.
About 1530 when they discovered
that there were only a few days oi
the month left they instituted a
Thanksgiving festival which haz
been observed ever since with ia-
creased gratitude and devotion as
each November ha3 worn away. .
It's Up To The Lad
O. If c youny man of ttcenty mar-
Tie: a girl of ticenty-tico can the
marriage be annulled by the young
man's parents providing they knew
nothing of the affair? The vitness
believed and swore to the fact that
the young man teas of legal age.
Js such a marriage legal?
A. In your state (Washington)
the statute requires the consent of
the father mother or legal guardian
if the young man is under twenty-
one or the girl is under eighteen.
However the statute further pro-
vides that If either party to the mar-
riage is incapanle of consenting for
want of legal age the marriage is
voidable only at the suit cf the party
laboring under v such disability.
Hence under the circumstances out-
lined by you the parents cannot
bring an action to annul the mar-
riage. If such action is brought it
must be brought la this casn by the
young man. .

A. In your state (New Jersey)
the statute provides that "when any
person shall t le seized of lands tene-

and without leaving lat-ful issue

that one dies intesL'.to and without

said Inheritance came to the person
so seized from the part of his or her
mother by descent dcvi:-s or giit
iu which case it shall descend as if
such person so seized had survived

provided that "nothing in thi3 act'
