ROMK, KWI'l'T DAY
Sume'' day I will reform the world,
and make the crooked places straight;
then e-.eiy evil will lie hurled to outer
dnriuiesa, sure as fnte. But now I have
to ilo-my choreH. and keep the well
known wolf awny; I have to fix the
cellar doors, anil lay In coal and flour
and hay. Some day, Willi you, I'll tnlie
the stump and talk from morn till
night arrives, send old abuses to the
dump, and brighten up men's darkened
lives. But now 1 have to mine the
price rf things we need it takes some
roll and pay the chap who brought
the ice. and t'other guy who brings the
coal- And sometimes, as I pay my
Mils. I think perhaps that helps as
much as whooping tip and down the
hills, demanding, things to bent the
rutch. And often, ns I do my chores..
I think that helps the world along ns
ninch as "raising raucous roars, nna
showing that all things are wrong.
Pome day I'll leave my useful tasks,
for fake my simple homely joys, and
eland on boxes and on cask, and wave
rod flags, and make a noise. Then
you will know, if you are near, that
nomething's wrong beneath my thatch,
mid you may take me by the ear, and
load me to the bobby hatch.

under Henry the Eighth, a "life so wretched that
even a beast's life seems enviable," inspired Sir Thomas
More, the brilliant scholar, councillor
write "Nowhere or Utopia", in which his exuberant fancy
painted ideal conditions for humanity or conditions then
deemed so impossible as to be deemed ideal. And Utopia
has been the synonym for the visionary ever since.
In the 400 years since More sealed his faith in human
ity with his blood on the block, for he was beheaded for
opposing the tyranny of autocracy, the world has pro
gressed so far that most of the "visionary" reforms in ef
fect in the imaginery Utopia have actually become real
ities. In many ways, economic and political conditions to
day compare favorably with those pictured, in More's
dreamland island.. - '.. ,,-;; .
The aim of legislation today is largely to secure so
cial welfare, as in Utopia, Men work 8 hours and less in
stead of the Utopian ideal 9-hour day. Public education
has long been established. Physical aspects of society are
receiving attention. Houses are built light, airy and com
fortable, with real glass windows. Streets are far wider
than the ideal 20-foot lanes of Utopia. People are no lon
ger hanged for simple theft and the improvements that
More anticipated centuries ago in the criminal code are in
effect. Our religion, like that of the Utopians, rests on
toleration, and political liberty has overthrown the mon
archy. More's dream of Utopia has tome true, at least par
tially, and "Nowhere" has become "somewhere" our own
United States, not so much by revolution, as through evo
lution. There never was a time in the world's history
when the lot of the average man was better than it is to
day. It is still very far from ideal and we dream of a
still fairer Utopia but it also will come lay evolution
rather than revolution, as humanity stumbles painfully
up the winding spiral of progress. .
.As. More's Utopia has. been realized, so will the new

I was very glad that John had' nu
Appointment with Mr. Dunham to dls-
cups advertising matters, for It took
him nwviy from mc dining iho ufler-
oon. I had to be nlone to pet hold of
myself. In the short twenty-four hours
Hint I had been married to John I
learned that I did not know him at
all and that he did not know me. We
were absolute strangers.
I almost came to the conclusion that
I never could like John very well. It's
a strange thing, isn't it. that we can
love n man passionately and not like
John very well, It's) a strange thing.
Isn't it, that we can love a man pas
sionately and not like him at all?
John and I were great lovers. The
sight of him coming through the door
way with that smile In hla eyes al
ways has given me a thrill. The toticu
of liia hand on my shoulder has always
made my heart beat a little faster and
even when I have been angriest with
him, nt the first advance on his part
my lips were ready for hla kiss.
John and I were not friend we
never have been friends.
You expeot so much from a friend
than from a lover. Passion blliyU you
to your, lover' faults. Friends' must
have tastes in common.
The other night 1 heard John re
peat the-old saying that no man who
would marry nt thirty-five the wnm.iii
whom ho married at twenty-three. 1
wonder If any woman, nt thirty, would
marry the man that she wedded at
I wouldn't give up my life with John
for the hint three years for anything
in the world, nnd yet this morning I
wished that he were out of my lifo.
I think every woman should marry
and very one should have children,
and, strange as it may seem, John Gor
don Is the only man t have ever known
that I should like to have for the father
of my children.
I wonder If I am like the queen bo
who has no more use for her partner
after she knows her progeny is secure?
Marriage is necessary, of course, but
today, thinking over my own experU
enoes, t feel something should be done
to make iiinivlage more difficult and
divorce somewhat easier. I know this
woud have helped me. I have learned
one thing. If only one, in three years
of married life, and that is: if married
people are to be happy or even season
ably contented, they must have some
thing In common than that feeling
which we call love. 1'erhnps that
something is friendship.
It may be that when John and I are
older, and moro sedate, we will have
come to look upon married life more
philosophically, but just now it seems
to me that I cannot live with him an
other day and sometimes I think he
has the same feeling toward me.
John has always considered me a
: part of himself, or rather a possession
of bin, and ever since that far away
afternoon when he came back from his

Fifty years ago before Sir Tosentv Litter
founded antiseptic surgery surgical opera

blood poisoning. .
Today such consequences are rare exceptions,
and medical science has so extended the idea
of sickness prevention that the great plagues of

vaccines, anti-toxins, sanitation all stand'
guard before the citadel of health.
Now science has iltveloped ail effective ajrent against

That effective aent is Nujol.
