The question under consideration, was the rent

the difference in rent was two or three hundred
dollars. The husband 'considered that he could

of the discussion Sarah advanced the not very

In the case of Allen vs. Allen, to set aside fraud
ulent reort of guardian on account of excessive
charges for boarding, clothing and lodging a ward,
trled before the Master Commissioner last week,
a Mr. William Darker, who lives In Fulton town
ship of this county, in his-testimony for the de
fense made the following startling disclosure un
der oath. He said:
"I am the father of. six girls; have kept board

cents per week; bert-oard Is worth $2.25 more per
week than her work." '
At this wonderful disclosure the counsel for the .

aneouslv, the former, "I pity the girls," and the -latter,
"Thank (lod-, I have but one daughter and
that one Is married." So we -would say, heaven
help the girls of our country. How they can keep

Is not this an outrage uiton humanity ? Does

wanted to absorb the $700 or $10)0 that came to
her through her soldier father who laid hi llfo
upon his country's altar. This Is but a fair sam

honest toil. What a base He. What a slander on
