Miss Alien Carpenter, of Xew York,

"Women must cease thinking along
the lines of school teacher, stenographer
and book-keepor when they face the
problem of earning their own living.
One industry has availed itself of this
new idea the automobile business.
President of tho Maxwell Motor Com
pany, when approached by tho commit
tee of New York women, interested in
(lie opening of a business field for
women, said, "I'll pay them as much as
I pay men for the same work."
Mr. Flanders Immediately backed up
his statement by placing Mrs. Crystal
Eastman Benedict, well-known New
York woman, in charge of the women 's
department. Later a number of prom

During the prevalence, of the plague
in India, anil when death was reaping
his blackened harvest in swaths, a num
ber of officers ill the lliiti.-h unin
formed n elnlt of despair. They felt
themselves doomed cut off from
friends and hope. Whatever may lie
the fault ot the British soldier, he has
one terrible quality that of obeying1
orders, even when such orders are for
the grave. Aa Irish officer in the club, I
with that terrible recklessness so pecn-j
liar to the Irish soldier, composed tho'
following song. Each niht the club
met, and with flowing glasses, sang thai
song in idioms. Each night there was
nu empty chair but the remaining mem
bers turned its back to the table and
sang on, This was repented until there
remained but one of the club. It is
recorded that, on the last night of his
existence, he entered the clubroom,
turned the empty chairs of his com
panions to the table, filled his glass, aad
sang "Hurrah for the Next that Dies"
until he dropped dead at the table. To
those who have read of ravages of the
plague and of tho stubborn heroism of
tho British army, this will not appear
We meet 'neath the sounding rafter,
And the walls around are bare;
As they echo our peals of laughter,
It seems that the dead are there!
But stand to your glasses steady;
We drink to our comrnde'sseyes.
Quaff a cup to tho dead already,
And hurrah for tho next that dies!
Not. hern is the goblet glowing:
Not hero is the vintage sweet;
'Tis cold as our hearts are growing,
And dark as the doom we meet!
But stand to your glasses steady,
And soon shall our pulses rise;
A cup to tho dead already,
Hurrah for the next that dies!
Not a sigh for the lot that darkles,
Not a tear for the friends that sink;
We'll full midst the wine cup sparkles,
As mute ns the wine we drink.
Ho stand to your glassps steady;
'Tis this that the respite buys;
A cup to the dead already,
Hurrah for the next that dies!
Time was when we frowned on others;

Who hope to seo them again I
No! stand by your glasses steady!
The reckless are here the wise;
A cup to the dead already,
Hurrah for the next that dies!
There's many n hand that's shaking,
There's many a heart thal's sunk.
But soon, tho' onr hearts are brenkiiig,
They'll burn with tho wine we've

And thus does the warmth of feeling,
Turn ice in the grasp nf death.

Sacramento, Cal., Dec. 11. There is a ujy . j WM setting here waiting
slight disagreement between Secretary
or Mate Jordan mid Deputy Attorney
tiencral McKisick as to just when the
amendments passed at the November
election will become effective.
.Ionian says that he will sign the
certifications of vote on December 14.
Under the law which calls for a certifi
cation forty days after election, the
time of signing falls due on December
13. But December 13 comes on Sunday
and Jordan is given the right to sign
on Mondny.
The law also says that five dava after
tho certification the amendments shall
become effective. Jordan, figuring the
certification the amendments shall be
come effective Jordan, figuring five
full days, says this would make tho
amendments effective December 20.
McKisick's interpretation is that tho
amendments will hecoino eftective upon
tho fifth day after the certification,
which will be December 18.
The view of the deputy attorney gen
eral will probably hold.

are in doubt as to the provisions of the
new emergency internal revenue law,
iu so far us it applies to freight ship
ments, the- Southern Pacific company,
through Freight Traffic Manager t'.
W. l.uce. is endeavoring to make all
points clear.
"lhe law provides that a one-cent
war revenue stamp bo placed on enuh
bill of lading, manifest, or similar
memorandum," says I.ucc. "The ship
per must affix this stump to the billot-lading,
and the railroads cannot ac
cept and forward a shipment until this
is done. Such is the ruling of the
United Stutes treasury department.
"The department has also ruled that
where freight is accepted at hoii
ngency stations, it must be receipted
for by the conductor accepting it. He
must see to it that the stamp is at
tached to each of such receipts and
cancelled as required by regulations be
fore such shipment can be uccepted.
In the case of perishables or other in
stances where such receipts cannot be
given by the conductors, the goods may
be accepted and transported in advance
by the attixing of the stamp, but in
that event the receipt must be deliver-
d to the destination agent and he
must require the stamp from the consignee.
"Io make it even pluiner, the law
piovidcs that this stamp must be af
fixed before the railroads can accept u
shipment; and in cases of perishables,
they cannot deliver tho shipment until
