Mothers Have No Rights
Over Their Children!
••ys the law in thirty-seven of these United States today.
In seventeen States women cannot control property as do
their husbands and brothers.
In some states women cannot control their own earnings.
In Texasf Louisiana and Georgia, women cannot engage
In business without permission from the courts.
That's why eight million women want fair play in this
country—and are fighting desperately for it.
What are they getting ?

The Bloodthirsty Malay When H« It
Maddened by Frenzy.
"Amok" is a religious fanaticism, a
madness nnder which a man makes up
hta mind to kill any one he can uutU
he himself Is klled. Brought on by
drink or religion or from whatever
cause, the process is the same. The
madman seizes his «Teese and roshea
headlong down the street, cutting at
every one he meets. To any one who
has seen a creese or a parang further
detail Is unnecessary.
A man runnlug amok is as a dog
with hydrophobia, but the pauic caus-
ed by the former is by far the worse.
Like the mad dog, the madman Is fol-
lowed by a noisy rabble, who sooner or
later run into their man and extermi-
nate him. When this vengeful rabble
is made up • f bloodthirsty Malays and
Chinamen its wild rage and fury an
beyond control, beyond description.
The clamor and bloodcurdling yells of
the pursuing crowd and the ever near-
ing shout of "Oran amok, oran amok!"
are Incidents which can never be for-
gotten by any one who has seen or
heard them. The bravest quails when
suddenly turning the corner of a stree,
his ears nr greeted with the cry of
Oran amok!" and a few yards off he
sees a Malay running straight at him,
brandishing In his hand the bloody
creese with which he has already
slaughtered nil In his way.—Ixmdon
THE USEFUL SWALLOWS.
Light Cavalry of the Avian Army at
Friends of the Farmer.
From the standpoint of the farmer
and the orchardist perhaps no birds
more useful than the swallows exist
They have l eeii described ns the light
cavalry of the avian army.
Specially adapted for flight and un
excelled in aerial evolutions, they hav
few rivals ia the art of capturing ia
sec ti In midair. They eat nothing of
value to man except a few predaceou;
wasps and bugs and In return for their
services In destroying vast numbers of
noxious insects ask only for harborage
It is to the fact that they capture
their prey on the wing that their | e
collar value to the cotton grower is
due. Orioles do royal service in catch
lng weevils on the bolls, and black
birds, wrens, flycatchers and others
contribute to the good work, but when
swallows are migrating over the cot
ton fields they find the weevils flying
in the ojien and wage active war
against them. As many as forty-seven
adult weevils have been found in the
stomach of a single cliff swallow.—

Breaking Away From Work.
Our business men ought to break
away from trade exactions long before
they do—ought to do so as a matter
volition and ethical Judgment ratiier
than of physical necessity. They ought
to get and give more enjoyment in life.
They ought to do less for self and more
for others They ought to live more in
books and more in the open and le
at their desks and realize better health
and longer lives as u result. More and
more culture in ull its forms is exer
cising a growing influence, which must
manifest Itself 1 ti lessoned effort along
the lines of money getting and the de-
votion of more time on the part of our
business men to the pursuits which
naturally accompany fortified leisure.

gain leisure," and Aristotle was a wist?

Sleeping Car Trips.
"I have noticed one thing about
fileeplng car journeys," he remarked
"and that is that I always sleep bet
ter coming home than I did going
away. Whatever may be the cause,
such Is the <ase. Sometimes leaving
home a man has worries or thoughts
that won't let him rest easily, and by
the time he finishes his work in the
place he went to his mind has swung
around all right again. It doesn't

I have an upper or a lower berth when

His Worthless Son.
There llv« - an old negro truck farm-
er in Alabama who has frequent occa-
sion to reprove bis children for their
lack of industry.
"Yo' suttinly Is a wuthless son," the
old fellow declared one day to his old-
est. "It - a <I' pironed good thing fo*

"What yo ralkin' 'bout, pap?" asked
the hoi: "What yo* think yo* do deu?"
"I'd disinherit yo'! Dat's what I do!**

Boisterous Prelude to Marriages In Old
They love music in Rotb^nburg, and
!t is an Incident of most functions,
public and private. In front of the
rathhaus, when wedding formalities
nre going on inside, hired musicians
V>udly drum and trumpet, whereat the
people come running from all direc
tions, for a wedding is not carried on
*ith the quietness which would please
the shy and retiring. Marriage is a
Kacrament neither lightly nor secretly
On the night before the wedding it
Is considered de regueur to hurl old
pots and pans against the house of the
brldo with boisterous good wishes, and
without these delicate attentions a
bride would really feel slighted. Her
two best friends wait upon her during
the din and give her a wreath and u
veil and some verses composed in her
honor, and that the verses are curi-
ously like those offered to brides in
the past, except for necessary change
of name. Is not at all a drawback.
Weddings are usually on Tuesdays,
and they take from 7 o'clock in the
morning till 4 or 5 o'clock in the after
noon, including the time at the town
hall. At the home there will likely
be a piny given In which are set forth
the supposed foibles of the bride and
groom, and some friend, masquerad-
ing as a gypsy, will come in and give
whatever kind of prophecy best ac-
cord* with his wits —Iiobert Shackle-
ton In Harper's Magazine.
MEXICANS' STAFF OF LIFE.
The Tortilla Is Their Bread—Frijoles
Are Boiled Beans.
The tortilla is the ancient Indian
bread of Mexico. Its only constituent
Is Indian corn (maize), which the wo-
men soak in limewater until the ker-
nels are at the point of bursting, then
wash thoroughly until it is free from
lime, when they grind it by rubbing it
on a large blook of stone, especially
cnt for the purpose, with a smaller
stone which they hold in their hands.
The operation looks very much like
rubbing clothes on a washboard and
is a laborious and tedious one. The
lime renders the corn dough adhesive,
like wheat flour dough, and it is easily
patted between the hands into cakes
the size and shape of an ordinary grid
dlecake and is baked upon a thin
stone griddle. Though no salt or
leaven is added, fresh tortillas are ex-
The one other food mainstay is frl-
joles-ordinary beans. They are boiled
to a mush and with a liberal quantity
of lard are warmed ns required in a
flat earthen dish that answers for a
frying pan The very poor people do
not always have the luxury of frijoles
and when they do have them cannot
always afford the lard.—New York

Odd Death Certificates.
Certificates of deoth are not docu-
ments where one usually seeks for hu-
mor, but there Is frequently to b*
found In them mn« h «f the unconscious
variety. Here, for Instance, is how
the cause of death is stated In the case
of a laborer:
"Died from injuries received through
bull accidentally kneeling on hi?
The consideration shown for the feel
lngs of the bull Is a fine touch and
suggests grave questions on the morel
responsibility of the lower animals.
Again, a man is stated to have "died
from the effects of Injuries received
after being run over by n railway
train In motion owing to a raisunder
standing between deceased and
engine driver." This description of a
rather ordinary railway casualty Is ex
cellent.—I ndon Express.
