President Wilson in his cabled address to the extra session recommended the repeal of wartime prohibition insofar as it applies to wines and beers; announced definitely that railroads, telegraph and telephone lines should be returned to private ownership; urged revision of the war taxes, particularly the abolition of manufacturers’ and retail excises, and outlined generally a program for labor. The president again urged the enactment of woman suffrage and recommended that the tariff laws be supplied with teeth that would protect American industry against any possible foreign attack, such as might come from Germany along lines on which she formerly held a monopoly. Of the Paris peace conference and league of nations, the president merely stated that it would be premature to discuss them or express judgment. lie also avoided any lengthy discussion on domestic legislation because of his long absence from Washington. daring that a sea, but whether During By flu* Assoria t«*<l Pres* PARIS, May 20.—No time extension having been granted, the German plenipoteniaries will deliver their answer to the peace terms Wednesday of this week.

Special Agents.—Adv. has to do w ith the problem of a poor wage-earning girl who has been deprived of proper home influences and the benefits of a good education. It is estimated that more than the mil lien persons are familiar with the* story, which has been shown un the stage in every city of 10,000 population and more. It has been discussed from the pulpit and especially in social welfare gatherings in universities. At such a recent gathering in Philadelphia one discerning woman advanced, the idea that the educated woman has a problem concerning her happiness equally as acute as the poor working girl. In all of which Miss Ward heartily agrees. “Th** highly educated woman, you see, literally surrounds herself with obstacles. She is immeasurably more difficult to please than her plainer, simpler sister. She has also a somewhat increased sense of independence In the feeling Hilt she is more competent if need be to take care of herself. At the same time it is perhaps equally true that a relatively smaller number of men havo the courage to think highly enough of themselves to propoke to her. And so the rule works both ways. “Just now because of the wTorld war is a transition time for all tho industries and all the occupations. This Is especially the case with matters which most concern the new woman. The conditions, associations, methods, aims of education, are undergoing constant reconsideration and change. “One of I he most important and absorbing of all the industries in America is that of education. And educated women, married or un-, married, it is pointed out .are hav-j ing a continually increased partnership in it. “Human nature, at any rate, is not likely to change. To marry and give in marriage is a fundamental need which no wholesome education, however high or broad, can in the long run ever push far to one side. I Which shows that .reduced to elementals, all of us differ in no wise from the girl in “Common Clay.” We are children of the one mot her. I DTH ARRIVALS NEW HARRIS HOTEL. H. Harrison, Muskogee.

The Amazing Wife is the title of a superb drama featuring Mary MacLaren. It is a story of the strange situation of a couple who circumstances led people to believe were married, although in reality they had rever met. The grand climax of the drama is wonderful. The Amazing; Wile. For three months Cicely Ashton had played the imposter, had kept up the pretense that she was the widow of Lieut. John Ashton, killed in action, instead of the widow of John Ashton, laborer, killed in a disgraceful brawl. Many times she had been on the verge of confessing the deception, but Lieut. Ashton’s parents had come to love her for herself, and she shrank from adding another wound to the grievous one that Fate had dealt them. Then lieutenant Ashton returned another error In the casualty lists, another brave soldier thought to be dead, who had really survived the Hun’s murderous fire. But not many have come back to find a widow where they had left no wife! That is the situation on which “The Amazing Wife,” Mary MacLaren’a latest Universal Special Attraction. is built. The picture, which is described as emotional in the extreme, will be seen today at the American theatre. ‘"I he Amazing Wife,” was directed by Ida May Park from a scenario of her own. written about a story of Elinor Chipp’s. In the cast with Miss MacLaren are Frank Mayo, Stanhope Wheatcroft, Ethel Lynne. Seymour Zed iff. Molly McConnell. Joseph WL Girard and Clarissa Selwynn. Mothers’ Ray ut University. Mrs. R. E.
