"Of course the men would get their jobs back in the fall if I hey wanted to return,'' said Commissioner Freeman to the Herald. "But I believe, the limo is here when we will have to employ more women for such jobs, freeing the men for the harder \Vork of farm,'production. And 1 haven't the slightest doubt the women would make good. We would have to train them as we have lo train the men. Hut the women can run street cars and they will be running them in Uiis country before the war is over." The Herald understands that none of the motormen have as yet accepted Commissioner Freeman's offer of leave-ol'-absence, but in view of the fact that the motormen's wages averages round the f'M mark, from which lie must pay for his living in town, while farm hands are receiving an average of $7fi a month and board, it is quite likely that a number of those experienced in farming will take up the offer. If they do, don't forget to tip your hat to the lady "motorman-conditctors" who will take their places. Or would you call them "motor-women-conductoresses ?" I Growing I Boys need it !

THE CRICKET ? � � �* :< / Detroit, April 2. Dear Dory Ann.-Easier day is just over. All the lillies, from the church altars with their blessed messages of life are on their way to-hospitals and Infirmaries. The hallelujah chants of victory.have died in the highest arches and in the darkened churches, the prayers and thoughts of thousands of worshippers are mounting up to God like a sweet, incense that still lingers in the air and will not. immediately depart. Never has Easter meant so much to the world! With our dearest and best passing on tiie fields of France, Jeans' gift of immortal life was never so ineffably sweet. Greater love hath no man, than this that a man lay down his life, for a friend. Our boys are following in his footsteps. 1 shut my eyes to thing over the impressions of Faster and before nje I see again flowers everywhere, glorious splotches of color in the city's thoroughfare. I lie Broadway market, with its high idled booths of vegetables and flowers that make one pine to be one of the painting brotherhood. The booth run by ltaliaus were the most elaborately decorated, most fanciful designs being carried out. In one booth devoted to eggs a very original color scheme was depicted. Hundreds of eggs were piled in a great Easter box made of a delicate shade of mauve. Tuo eggs were apparently selected ones, of a pearly white color, ��and in the centre of the box blponied forth some exquisite pale yellow tulips. Antonio was much pleased when we admired his creation and flashed us a smile which showed his white teeth, as white and. dazzling as his many eggs. The I'roadway market, I may say in passing, is an enclosed market, .it. is on a very large scale, and is well worth a visit if only to see the multitudinous varieties of food. Many of the early greens come fro/n the "petite Cote," a French Canadian settlement near Amherstburg. They arc wonderful market gardeners. And in the Now York markets the petite Cote is well known for its wonderful vegetables. Some day i would like to tell you more about this little country in Essex county. Jiut to mm. back to the Easter flow- Try'f Pure HSoccm 4LMOST everything you eat nowadays costs JJk more than it used to-except FRY'S COCOA. Here, at the same price, you get the fine, rich, delicious nourishment that has made FRY'S famous for 200 years. The manufacturing process being exclusive, the result is a Cbcoa of exquisite flavour, very soluble and economical. Your money can hardly buy' an equal quantity of nourishment in any other food. You can easily prove thi� by getting a tin of FRY'S to-day. Truest economy-use FRY'S ers. Detroit, more than any other city I have ever been in, made a great display of flowers on that day. Poor indeed was the. famiiy that didn't have a fresh flower in their window. To me. it was a hopeful sign of better days in Detroit, that on one day in the year at least the people desired a symbol of purity and sweetness. Great pots of bulbs stood in the windows of the wealthy and the gay scarlet geraniums, the bright little sister of the poor, lightened many of the dullest and greyest windows. Wasn't it Abraham Lincoln who said "God must love the common people: he made so many of them.'' So must he love this hardy little flower that blooms in so many of their homes. Skirts are fearfully narrow, my dear one. You will have to curb your swinging stride. I tore one last week, a spanking new one too. I ran for a car with my old "abandon" when rip. rip, a dreadful sound. And 1 could have wept as I viewed the wreck of my 1018 model. The new walk to go with these skirts is a cross between the grapevine wiggle and a club foot hop. i am trying to master it. but I have suspicions a German is at the bottom of this whole proposition.' They know how important we women aro and this is just one way of deforming us and tying us up as useless packages. You know when we wore these skirts before it took us some years to walk as human' beings again. Suit, coats are of every variety, some knee length, very graceful for tall stately women, others flaring much at, the hips. While of course there is the popular bolero we read, so much about. It is most popular, but. suits best the slight young girl in her teens. As iu other seasons 1.I10 mannish looking dark blue serge modes in all varieties of styles looks smartest. Some are trimmed in the shiny varnished braids and have pretty braid ornaments with perhaps a pretty little narrow silk tie finished with a touch, of color iu beads or silk. Nearly all have gas little vests of broadcloth . tucked iu the "front, Robin Redbreast style. The color of these vests are mostly chamois, steel grey, cream or;white. The very shiny black hats look well with these suits. The best looking ones have sharp upstanding quills of black. Others have pom poms and still others just smart bows of varnished black ribbon. Shoes are so much quieter. Oxfords in black or brown are the prevailing favorites, but spats are still holding their own in spite of warm days. Printed chiffons and Georgettes are being shown a great deal. The designs are lovely and 1 hear "made in America." and they tell us these dresses are most, practical. Although perishable looking (hoy really wear .is long as a silk dress. Whtye ves-tees and strange shaped collars and flaring undersleevos appear in most of them, and add the touch of white daintiness- and sheerness we women all love. Normal waist lines have come in again and the majority of these dresses have the old fashioned graceful cruahed ribbon mirdla with looped ends that we have pined for secretly in sashless days. Good night, my dear Dory. Your own faithful CRICKET. REGRET TONE OF WILSON'S SPEECH Zurich, April S.-The tone of President, Wilson's speech at Baltimore is deplored in Austria says a Vienna dispatch to the Neue Zurichter Zeitung, although i^n the circumstances, it is regarded a^s quite intelligible. " The essential point is considered to be the president's readiness under the conditions indicated, to conclude peace even now.
