THAT MARRIAGE TIE. [Newspaper Article] — Truth — 28 March 1914

THAT MARRIAGE TIE. The' pres.* daily prevaricator? an nounce with enthusiastic untruthfulness that, after all, women are as fond of home and kids to-day as they were '»0 years ago. This assertion might be taken for what it is worth hut that it collides violently with facta to the con trary. In the first place, the size of the average family is on the deerea.se, which shown that women ean't be as j fond of children a* formerly, otherwise they would not take measures to pre vent their arrival. In the second place, the attraction of the fireside—the place where the lire used to be—simply doesn't exist to a large extent among j the high-flying and amorous female* of t i present conditions. You have only to I j look at the home-life degeneracy of the j : nobs to see that borne out.

Endowed with a colossal cheek, and a fluent tongue, he was wont to wait upon people, ostensibly on some legitimate business, and in the course of conversation, give out that he was a well known horse trainer going out to put a few hundreds pounds one of his horses— a moral cert.
