FRIST URGES SUFFRAGE
Tells Hearers Voting Would
Never Degrade Women.
NUNS VOTE FOR ABBESS
Women Had Ballot Under Rule
of Church Long Ago, Father
It is intellectual suicide to say that
voting would degrade woman, according
to the Rev. Joseph H. MacMahon. who
gave the third lecture on "The Catholic
<'hureh and Woman Suffrage'' at Delmou
lco's yesterday afternoon.
"Don't commit intellectual suicide, "
sai?l I'ather MacMahon, "by declaring
that woman's natural mo?le?ty and re?
serve would suffer by a visit to the poll?
ing ptsd OBC! a year. Hspc ?ally do not
as Catholics give as your reason for op?
posing woman suffrage the argument that
women would have to meet strange men
t!i? r.. so long as church fairs and bazaars

young girls meet frirwi and stranger
Silks. There Is less danger at .?he polling ;

the presence of the lntelllg? nt manhood
of our country.

father MacMahon ended his lei ture
with a denunciation ol the people who
refer to tradition as their argument
ugamst votes for women.
"Catholic women who sav they would
not vote because the BleeSOd Virgin ?lid

RAISING CHICKENS, IT APPEARS,
IS NOT ALWAYS LUCRATIVE
Two Girls Come ?Out of It with Ruined ?Complexion?
and Depleted Purses.
This is a true story about two girls wfi
went into the chicken business, but the
names cannot be divulged, because th
experience was s<? painful that they ai
living to live it down and forget it, ar
to publish their names would only revlv
the sad episode. But one of the girls Is
nniHlcian. w.,o gave up her New Yor
studio to go "into the chicken buslnes
and Is now recuperating from the venlur
before taking up her profession agali
The other is an artist. She |S DOW i
California, tryir.g to recover her spirlti
pretty complexion and a few olher desir-i
ble possessions which somehow droppe
from her while she was raising hens.
Two years ago these girls had a flat !
Washington Square, S treasure of a mai
and health and good looks. They wer
perfectly ?ontented until one day a week
ly ?levoted to hen culture made Its poi
toned way Into their happy home.
The artist picked the papfr up at th?
breakfast ta'..!e. Her eye fell upon ai
a??count of a girl who, beginning witl
twelve eggs and a hen loaned her by i
neighbor. In ten years by her own un
aided efforts and the natural increase o
that ?mall beginning had acquired ?
chicken farm where she rode around 01
horseback supervising eight hired men.
The artist felt dissatisfied. She and hei
friend worked as much as nine hours ?
day. sometimes, one painting pictures and
the other giving music lessons and gettln-a
up a concert now and then, and what did
tbgy get for it '.' <'ooped up In a city, with
no diversions but the opera and things
like that, nothing to wear but clothes
and no change but a month In the coun?
try anon a year. She looked across the
breakfast table at her mate.
"Cecilia," she said, "let's cut this awful
round and rent s piece of land and raise
Chickens. to that we could acquire a
Comp?tence. Here we never shall. Hens
pay. Look at this egg'." She held It out
to Ce?*illH. "We paid six cents for this
egg, and I'm perfectly positive it's cold
stoiage. Think what a trade we could
work up among our friends, what a price
we could get. with absolutely fresh laid
Now, Cecilia had this characteristic?
that If her opinions about PfagBOT and
counterpoint and a few matters like that
?Wars not interfered with you could lea'l
her by the nose In other things. Besides,
she was tired telling fashionable mothers
of unmusical daughters that their daugh?
ters had undoubted talent. She looked
rround the artistic little dining room and
agreed that It would be awfully nice to
get back to nature.
They did not take tbe step all at once.
That was October, and It was March be?
fore the change was made. On March 16
they found themselves In possession of a
?racy small abandoned farm on the edge
of a New* Jersey village, for which they
gave fin a month rent. They had spent
$3?*?0 of their savings in buying two sec?
ond hand incubators, two second hand
brooders, two prise roosters and a doren
prias hens and a horse and buggy to take
their eggs to the railway station for ship-1
i ment and In hiring the village carpantas
to build some chicken houses. Cecilia.
i having learned some carpentry in the
I course of a year's residence at a eettla
j ment In New York, proposed and under?
took to build the ?hkken houses herself,
but she smashed her thumb with a ham?
mer and so the carpenter was hired.
The detailed account of the succeeding
twelve months cannot be given; it would
take too long, but the time su full of
events. The village carpenter could not
get It through hia head what aanltary
neat arrangements were, though the glrla
repeated to him many tlmea th? dlrectlona
they had gleaned from the best hen maga?
zines, and the chicken houaes had to be re?
built three times. The artist got Influ?
enza standing out In the cold spring winds
overseeing the carpenter, and was confinad
I to her bed a week. When the artist go*
around they began keeping a diary. It
?an something like thla:
April 1. Robert Browning alek. Opeas
his mouth In a funny way. (R. B. was
one of the prise roosters.)
April 2. Poor Robert Is dead. Buried
him under a lilac bush. It was th? p'*i.
Mis' Simpklns says. (Mis' Slmpklns was
the next door neighbor).
April 16. First lot of chicks out of in?
cubator. Half the eggs didn't hatch,
though we watched night and day to eee
that the lamp didn't go out. Mia' Slmp?
klns thinks the eggs we ?bought of th?
fancier over In the next town wer? cold
storage. Cold storage eggs won't hatch,
But why prolong the painful tale?
There are, it seems, more ways for chick?
ens to die or get killed than the hen
hooks wot of. When Cecllla'e and the
artist s ?-hicks couldn't expire any other
way, Alfred Lord Tennyson?the other
prize rooster?used to get Into their ln
cloeure and stand on them. He was very
heavy, and the dignity with which ha
could stand with an expiring chick under
his claws was heartrending.
Th? clmax of the spring's catastroph?e
ean.e one May night. There was a con?
cert in New York they longed to attend.
They had made It a rule never to leave
th?? farm, both of them, at once, but that
night they broke the rule. Mis' Slmpklns
said she'd look after things. But Mia'
Simpkins fell asleep, and a larrfp In on?
of the brooders got tipped over somehow,
and the brooder and forty little chicks
burned up That pretty nearly sickened
?'ecilla; but the artist declined to give up.
They kept at it a year, and then tore?
months more Cecilia's tender skin got
rough and rod from exposure and the
artist nearly went mad over accounts.
They sold some egga and broilers and su
forth, but the receipts were always run?
ning a losing race with the expenditures,
and last June even the obstinate artist
gave ?n to the friends who all along had
been saving: "I told you so." As soon
as they have recovered from the exhaus?
tion consequent on their fifteen months
of simple life the artist and the musicien
will rent studios and re-enter their re?
spective professions with thankful hearta
