kSilk Hose as a Cure for the
Divorce Evil; Fewer Affinites
If Wives Would Spruce Up
South' Bend,'" Tnd.; Mar! 18 "If
there were more silk stockings worn
and women owe more time to better
aroominff. there would be fewer divorc
es, and, I am sure, fewer affinities,"
was the statement of Oeorgie Burns La
cotir, who is delivering a series of lec
tures. The speaker st.ited that so-called re
formers had attacked the modern man
ner of dress tiie short sleeves, the
healthful low neck, the sensible sani-
tarty short skirt, nnl silk stockings as
the cause of divorce and the social evil
generally, when it is, in reality, but the
awjkening of woman to demand com
fort, fashion and health.
One union suit, a well fitted corset,
a orassiere, silk stockings and one silk
petticoat are. the only essentials for a
well gowned woman, said the speaker.
And added garments dertact from the
lines of the gown and keep the air from

Amsterdam, Mar. 18. The wounding
of l'rince Oscar of Germany on the Rus
sian front makes four of the kaiser's
sons who have suffered bodily injury in
tho war, according to accurate journal
istic records, here. Only the crown

ed thus far. August Wilhelm, the
Kaiser's fourth son, was wounded dur
ing the battle of the Xlarne by -i bul
let in his left arm. The second son,
Kitel Frederick, was thrown from his
horse in October. 11114, and .suffered a
damaged knee. Joachim, tho sixth son,
was wounded by shrapnel in the right
thigh in September, 1114. Joachim was
also nearly captured by the Russians in
the following December. He Wis res
cued by a German aeroplane. Oscar, re
cently wounded, suffers from palpita
tion ot tue neart and collapsed from
this complaint, after a battle in 1914.
