A woman in Alberla has absolute conlrol ot her own property during her life, and she may will it to whoever she wishes. If, however, she makes no will, her enliro estate located in this province will go to her husband. A law was passed by our last legislature which provides that It a married woman dies without a will, her estate shall be divided Just the same as her husband's would if he died without a will; that is, all-to the husband If no children, half if ond child, and one-third it children. This law does not .come into effect until one year after its passage. Regarding property outside of this province, the laws.of the province or state in which such property is sit- uated would obtain1.

"The doctor aaid my nerves were weak and that I had nervous prostration. I cer- tainly was.nervous and irritable. I was always worrying about something. "It all looks very foolish now.

"Why doesn't every woman use Dr. Chase's Nerve Pood when1 she gets run- down in health "But I suppose they do not all know about it or do iiot realize what it will do lor them. Then perhaps some of them do not use it long enough to build up their exhausted nervous systems. "One thing sure, the women of this community will know all about Dr. Chase's Nerve Pood, for they know how miserable I was, and I will see that they know what I used to make me well. "I certainly did get into a terribly run- down condition, but ho one would believe it to see nie now since using Dr. Chase's Nerve Food. I can now take a real pleas- ure in life and its activities.

I should like to publish vour.letter entire, lut space will not lermii, but such letters are an en- couragement to me. Many .people, '.Iho yourself and husband, are realiz- ing that our laws do not bid for all lhat Is best in men. More honor, to men who are just anil good in spite of the opportunities they have to be otherwise. Mrs. B. I ran no occasion for your friend enduring all this. .It because she is afraid to take proper methods that she has to endure it. I think, too, that she overestimates the publicity necessarily attached. At any rate her family cannot wish her ,'to endure all that for the sake of the family name; or if they do they are not worth considering. A bigamist put where he belongs, and she need have no further fear 'of him That is certainly belter than that he ruin her life that of heVciiildren, and in the long run probably no more publicity attached to it. Or if she does riot wish to do 'that, she can simply lay in forma lion-to his threats to her before a magistrate or justice of the pence, and have him bound over to keep the peace. If ho has carrier a gun after'her and..threatened her she should surely take'a'dvantago-o: the protection the law allows her. can hardly think that :after> being bound over to keep the .-peace, .and knowing thai he has a seven year sen- tence hanging over his head for big- amy that he will trouble her further. Ho knows she fears publicity, and counts on her not informing on him. Mrs. L. Could not proffer you ad- vice, hut I can give some general prin- ciples which have proven correct in many cases. I have known w.ornen who have made it loo'easy for their husbands. Xot liking-a scene -they have dono without almost'the very necessity of supporting life, pr have found tho way of earning them them- selves. This under- taken In this way and for this reason grows until the husband Is doing little or nothing toward the sup- port of tho family. Now It pcems true that none ol lis value the things that cost us nothing. So this condition, when brought about In this way, almost Invariably leads to other troubles. I have seen men who have drifted Into this stale of affairs, and who by s6me rude shock have been shaken into some conception of their duties. 1 have more than once seen such a shock pmiliu-e a real change in that homo.
