medieval warfare. The catapult of

WSSI December 31 Be the National Wedding Day?
YOUNG men contemplating matrimony will do well to hear in mind the
latest interpretation of the law. The man who w^g married at any tii$e
during 1918, a commissioner lias ruled, is entitled to tax exemption for a wife
. for a full year. Thus, he whose cere-
mony took place at 11 p. m., December
81, 1918, wins all of his $2,000 exemp-
tion—less, of Course, the wedding ex-
penses. On the other hand, he who
married at 1 a. m., January 1, 1918
(and likely enough there were some
such); might as well have been
married way back In 1917.'
In Denver an enterprising reporter
took a look at the 1018 marriage rec-
ord and found that 18 couples were
married on December 31. Denver has
a population of 260,000. This is to say that December 31 there was one mar-
riage to 20,000 people. If there were marriages December 31 all over the
country in the same proportion among our 110.000,000 people, the total was
5,500. ,As ea<jh. marriage carried with it tin exemption of $2,000, the aggre-
gate exemption was 5117000,000. In shortrthe iTCCOUi'iT StfindB thus: Tax exemp-
tions, $11,000,000, without the expense of wives for a year and with only
wedding expenses to be considered.
1 Will this bring about a radical change in the popular wedding season?
Will December liereafttr lie the season of brides and June be thrown into the
discard? Will December 31 be the one great marrying day of the whole year?
Will it come to be the big national holiday of the year, bigger than Christmas,
the Fourth pf July and Thanksgiving day? Will it be combined with New
Year's day in a double holiday?
The only trouble with this profound mathematical • calculation and the
deductions therefrom is that brides are.in the. habit^ of setting the-wedding
day. And little the bridegrooms will have to say about it, tax exemption or
