Recent Marriages as a Ground for

require discharges in all cases of
technical legal dependency, but only
permits discharges where in view of
dependency a discharge is advisable.

marriage recently hastily consummat consummated,

full discretion in cases where they

of the selective service law in the

to someone else.
Soldier's Pay Affecting Dependency
A soldier's pay is not less than $30
a month, and all clothing, subsistence,
medical treatment and housing are
furnished him. Under the law he
may allot any portion of his pay to a
dependent. Many soldiers receiving
$30 a month are easily able to allot
$25 monthly to the support of depend dependents.

The Two Seekers
Two men were seeking happiness,
One walked the roadside way
And looked with all his longing eyes
Within each garden gay.
Wher'er he saw it growing
He tried to grasp its flower;
But always, in his clutching hand,
It died before an hour.
Till, angry and despairing,
In bitterness he cried:
"Others are given happiness,
To me it is denied."
The other one looked 'round him,
"Since happiness is found
1st other people's gardens,
Why not within my ground?"
He dug and plowed and planted,
And with a careful toil
Where it was rough and stony,
Enriched each inch of soil,
Until with crowded blossoms
The little plot o'erran

Setting of Montmorency Falls Near
Quebec Resembles the Imaginative
Conception of an Artist.
The impress! veness of any bit of
scenery depends not on how large
It looks. Thus there are few persons
who would estimate the width of the
Grand canyon at more than a tenth
of what it actually is. Niagara falls,
when seen at a distance, is not im impressive,
pressive, impressive, and when you are close to
It you cannot get a complete view.
It is for this reason that many of
the smaller bits of scenery really give
more pleasure to persons who have an
eye for natural beauty. Montmorency
falls, on the river of that name a few
miles from Quebec, Is an excellent ex example
ample example of this fact. It consists of a
stream about 40 feet wide dropping
somewhat more than 200 feet over a
sheer cliff just above the Juncture of
the Montmorency and the St. Law Lawrence.

amphitheater of rock, Its jagged out outlines

and spruce, and opening upon the wide
blue expanse of the St. Lawrence.
Above the falls the stream Is known
as the Fairy river because of the weird
beauty of its dark waters, which wind
between sheer granite walls festooned
with very old, gnarled trees. It seems
more like some artist's Imaginative
conception than a work of nature.
