RELATIVES AND THE BABY
Inevitable Conflict Between Young
Mother and Grandmother.
Presumably, at tin* advent of the
first new baby, the parents’ relatives
are invaluable assistants, whether
they live in the house or merely conn*
to dinner on Sundays. In plain, cold
fact they are often the greatest hind-
rance a young mother has to contend
with in the proper adjustment of her
home to the new baby
The dullest imagination can picture
the inevitable conflict of opinion and
practice between the daughter or
daughter-in-law and the woman whose
family has reached maturity. The
methods of the latter appear to be
fullv justified by results. The former

And prim, precise and proper quite.

But oh! the hero wooed the girl,
Twice oh! he stole a kiss;

INSURANCE AGAINST SICKNESS
A bill will be introduced in the New
York State Legislature this year for
insurance against sickness. Such in-
surance as exists in Germany and
Great Britain will be compulsory for
all men and women gainfully employ
ed. whose earnings are less than $1200
per annum. Two-fifths of the cost of
this insurance is to he borne by the
workers, two-fifths by their employ-
es, and one-fifth by the state. The
bill provides that in case of illness the
beneficiary or his dependents shall
receive one-half or two-thirds of his
regular wages, as well as specified
medical, pharmaceutical, and hospl
tal benefits. The results of the work-
ings of such a law in the United States
are of extraordinary importance.

JAMES K. McGUIRE’S NEW BOOK.
This book is a sequel to "The Kim-',
the Kaiser and Irish Freedom,” by the
Fame author, which appeared last
winter, nine editions, and .selling
abroad in several languages. The
author believe* a Gaelic Renaissance
will only come through the economic
lessons which Ireland must learn from
Germany and says: "If the industrial
end economic system of Germany has
brought industrial freedom and pros-
perity to nil her state, the young men
of Ireland can afford to borrow it and
profit by her example. And her
friends in other lands can afford to
inquire into the causes which have
made Ireland the weakest country on
courage and fearlessness the spirit
and principles and the practical aid
of a civilized state, the foremost in

A WATCH RUNS BACKWARDS.
A jeweler has devised a watch which
runs backward, the figures on the dial J the continent and to
being arranged in opposite direction
to the usual kind. The watch was In-
vented at the suggestion of a left
handed person who complained that
it was always hard for her to tell the
time on the average clock, because
she thought "left handed.” With the
r.ew type of dial the process of read-
ing the hands was easier. Other left
handed persons seeing the new watcli
agreed that they could read it with
more facility than the other type—
Our idea of wasted energy is to get up
before day and play with the dog till
breakfast is ready.
It must be tough luck to have to
fight for a country where there is
j big stiff who orates about "My armies
and my navy.”
The Holidays Are Over
1915 is past, the New Year full
of promise, lies before us. Let’s make 1916 •

prospects were never brighter for Oklahoma and
Oklahomans. During 1916 lets do more sawing
•nd less hammering.
