For Dewrted Wives So many deserted wives have rit- ten me regarding help for them, that it is a pleasure to bu ablo to inform one class of such wives that there is fur tuaui. Orders In Council havu boon passed iwhlcb vitally affect wives and chllil- ren of soldiers who huvo deserted their domestic responsibilities. De- pendents of ex-members of His Ma- jesty's forces, who were dessrtcd by their soldier husbands or fathers, and were deprived of war service gratuity as a result of this, wil] be taken care of. An order-in-council has been pass- ed providing for payment of a war service gratuity to dependents of sold- iers whn gaijiifiqd the provisions of domicile in Canada at the outbreak of the war, and after thoir return to Canada upon discharge, but who de- serted their dependents before mating application for war service gratuity. The order provides that such depend- ents will be paid a war service gra- tuity equal to that which they would have received as dependents portion of the soldiers' gratuity before the Jlst ment as you. describe, If you would set to it that they are Informed. I cannot answer your questions re- garding; the Chinese. Regarding wills Mr. letter brings out a feature of our laws which this column has repeatedly emphasized, and that Is that the wife who has no children is better protected by our laws than is briefly married man went to the front, and shortly after this his wifo died. The husband informed his mother in this province fhat ho was making a will in her (uvor. and wrote asking her to look after his property until his return. Later on, the man married again, and was killed soon after. Now the new wife comes o.ver here to take all. of her husband's estate. You wish to know if she can do it. Yes, she certainly can, for several reasons. Even if the soldier hail left the will in the mother's would make no difference, still even then tho widow of. tha .soldier could claim it all. Why? Because if a married man makes a will leaving his wife less than she would have if he bad left no will, she can apply to the court for relief. Now jf the married man had left of next March, and that they are bona children, his wife would have one-third flde residents and domiciled in Can ada at the date of application. Another Decree Another order provides Cor payment of gratuity to dependents .who ivero precluded from receiving it Lecauso they were receiving civil pay from the Dominion or one of the provincial gov- ernments on account of thu dead Midler. K is provided' that t'rom this may be deduced any sum, ttlMr than arrears of salary, issiwd on aeorant of the dead soldier for any period subsequent to the month which he died. in Government is at last seeking to somewhat Emeliorate the condi- tion of the deserted wives and child- ren of soldiers. Innocent people who lost their natural protector by means far more dfstregslng than the real wldowi and fatherless, who can mourn their aoldler dead. We are not proud of the fact that the new wife and her children wore recognised and. provided for by our fovirnment so long before the real and her children. But thia step kas finally taken. QUESTION BOX "What Constitutes Mrs. ask a number of ques- tions. To begin with, what constitutes "cruelty" sufficient to secure a separa- tion? It must contain some element of physical-violence. I have been unable to discover a single case where a judge has decided otherwise, although of course my investigations have n been exhaustive. We know that the arc other forms or cruelty far grea er, but the law cannot (so judges cide) protect a wife from cruelty ot er than physical. Now it seems toll this admission of the futility of law so protect the wife should be goo and sufficient proof that the prese status of women is wrong, and shou he changed, but judges simply tak the Impotence of the law to mean th women then, must still continue stand every other sort of' cruelty e cfipt physical. However, although the'Jaw will n< protect the wife against such a hu band as you describe, yet if there an children, it will separate fro such a father. A letter to theMDepart ment of Dependent and Dellnquen Children .will bring prompt actior That department will not suffer chile ren to remain with such a father a you describe. It the mother IB foun to be a proper person to have th children, the Department will flgh her battles for her, will keep th children while she is getting -out her feet, and give them back to he when that time arrives. This Societ will better protect the children froii the father than the mother could prol ably do herself. As to securing help from the fathe. I think the cases are few where any thing worth while fs secured from ai unwilling husband and father. Th property which represents the and frugality qf both husband and wit Is given to the husband .with the em In view of making him support thi wife and family, but a few centurie: of observing the manner in whicl this law does not function, should be enough to teach us the folly of such a law. That "Dower Act" Again Th3 statement yqu quote is quite correct. A husband can move from the homestead, and if his wife does not follow him, he need not further support her. If she does, and they move to any property which ho has shack will fulfil the re qulrementn of the in due time, he can sell the homestead. If they move to rented property, he can- not sell the homestead except "such change of residence is consented to In writing by the wife of such mar- ried man." As to your question regarding the furniture, wife cannot claim any of It unless it mas bought with her own money. Chicken and butter money will not do, for that belongs to her husband. Re. your question regarding! keeping boose for a bachelor, there is no law to prohibit or with reference to it. There IB also no punishment for a married roan who pays attention to woman whether the wife of another man or not. His wife not even a divorce If the worst were true, tat couM get a separation. The husband could get a divorce from his wife for adultery, but according to if he had left no will. If one child, then half, and If no children, then she would get it ail. Therefore a mar- riod man cannot will from the wife more than her share iu the three cases. If a married man has" no child- ren ho can not will one cent from the wife. Now take this case in question, if this soldier had had children, and had left the will he told them of In writ- ing, even then the mother could not claim anything for marriage revokes Live News Notes From Coalhurst Mayor C.

What comes "ONCE TO EVERY Is it the Choice between and Duty? a will. He coald not cut out his second wife without making a new will, but if he had willed two-thirds from a wife who had children, and this same wife had survived him, the mother could take the two-thirds from the family, while if there were no children, he could not by .will, take one cent of his entire estate from his wife. So do we in a country that needs only good settlers, plenty of them, discriminate against the mother of a family in favor of the wife who has no children. ottr that Act Is not a crime, and punishment Is given for It.
