REV. DR. ANNA SHAW
Is JXow Traveling in Xorthwcst Slutc?, Where Question of Voles
for Women Will be Fought Oul at
ihc Next Election.
That valiant - hearted. Indefatigable
worker In tho woman's cause, the Rev.
I5r. Anna Shaw, Is once more out upon
her travels, and undergoing as arduous
a campaign as any soldier In the tlmo
of war. For she is no longer young, and
her plan of action is as strenuous and
exhaustive as any man could ever hope
Every night, from September 1 till No
vember 1, she has addressed, and will
continue to address, largo meetings, end
here comes tho salient point in a differ
ent town every night. For she is cam
paigning through seven States; First, in
South Dakota, with all its towns; then
North Dakota, Montana, Nevada, Nebras
ka, Missouri and Ohio. In all those States
th great nuestlon of woman's suffrage
Is to be submitted to tho voters, and
sometimes Miss Shaw speaks as often
a. six times In one day.
On her arrival at one town, the follow
ing arduous program awaited her She
had arrived In South Dakota at 10 o'clock
in the morning, somewhat exhausted after
her four and a hnlf days' train Journey,
and was Informed that she was to ad
dress the high school students at 12
o'clock, to attend a large luncheon party
at 1 o'clock, to address the Women's Club
at 3 o'clock, a street meeting at 7 o'clock
and later on a large meeting In the Opera
After a four and a half days' Journey
such a program might well fatigue many
a younger man or woman But Miss Shaw
enjoyed herself thoroughly, and came
through with flying colors. 'Within the
last week she has spoken In three differ
ent towns In on- day, and on more than
one occasion six times on the same day
The career of the Rev. Dr. Anna Shaw
is so welt known to the Philadelphia
pu )llc thar It needs little detailing. She
is an Englishwoman, a graduate In medi
cine of Boston University, u graduate
from the theological department of Hus
ton University and president of the Na
tional Suffrage Association of the United
States. Upon her the Kansas University
conferred the degree of Doctor of Di
vinity. Miss Shaw would have made a sp en
did lawyer, for she possesses great pnw
ers of oratory, a strong sense of Justi'-e
anJ a real gift in debate Mthoagh a
suffragist, she Is far fiom being a mili
tant, and, Indeed, there Is no necessity
for militancy, for no suffrage, campaigner
has ever been refused an utidlcnie at
During her piesent tour, In addition to
her lecturing in towns, Miss Shaw gives
speeches from the rear platform of the
train at the different railroad stations
the train may paust at en route. A band
Is frequently engaged to play at such a
stopping place, so that Miss Shaw may
hae a fair slzeu audience waiting for
her, and although she often luis only
time for a three minutes' address en
thus'.ism is always creat and she. gets
a cordial welrome. In this way she fre
quently tncluder thiee or four minor
towns In a slnsle Journey.
The vute has been granted to women
in ten dltftnent States now, and it Is
hoped that this year will include many
Miss Shaw came to America from Eng
land with her parents at the ago of four.
They were shipwrecked at Quecnstown
and had to put in to Spike Island, where
the child witnessed a curious and de
pressing sight, which was ever after to
Influence her future life and work. Doz
ens and dozens of weary prisoners spent
the long day In drawing water up from
the tea at one side of the Island then
walking across and emptying their buck
ets Into the sen on the other side of thi
Island. This dreadful waste of energy,
this purposeless soul-kllllng activity,
deeply Impressed the little girl, and In
later years her great Interest In prisoners
ai.d prison work was the outcome ot this
In character Miss Shaw Is simple and
unaffected, with a strong love for her
home and her fi lends. She enjoys noth
ing better than the entertaining of young
and merry people, and In her beautiful
home at Media many pleasant parties
take place. This domestic side In tho
brilliant woman's character makes It
very hard for her to have to leave her
home so often and for such long periods.
Her love of gardening Is another tie to
lume life, and her present great regrot
Is that the tour sho has now embarked
upon will prevent her seeing the ripening
of her fruit trees and the beauty of the
Media orchard In fall.
Of Miss Shaw's strong sense of humor
many good tales are told. When she first
started In college she wore her hair cut
short, und once at a Chautauqua gather
ing a pushing young man said to her:
" were Just discussing nnd wondering
why some women wear short hair. I am
sure Miss Shaw, you would not wear
ours so without some very good season.
Won't ou tell mo what that reason Is?"
To nhiuh impertinence tho lady replied:
"I tati erv sensitive about It, but. slnca
ou ash me I will tell von' It was a
Hiiii-iiarh I was born that way!"

THIS IS THE TIME TO
PLACE ALL BULB Pi ANTS
Better Results Can Be Had If Soil Is
Tulip and hyacinth, narcissus and daf
fodil, the little crocus that has such an
audacious air us it pops up through the
snow to greet tho spring, now Is the time
to plant them all.
They are all bulb plants that repay
ono generously for tho Ilttlo trouble in
preparing the soil
They will grow uln.ust everywhere, but
it goes without sajlng that the flowers
will be largo and fine if tho ground in
which they arc planted has had some
Tho earth should be spaded for eight
or ten Inches; It should be enriched
with a fertilizer of some kind at that
depth, and If a little sand Is placed be
neath the bulb itself, so much the bet
Ur. This will prevent the bulbs from
rotting. If heavy rains should follow too
.oon on the planting.
Six Inches deep nnd six In hes npart Is
the rule for planting hyacinths.
Tulip- inn ie ilati'.ii . -'hex deep
nnd four Inches apart They both need
sunshine, but the snowdrop and the cro
cus can be scattered over the ground or
along hedges, or even between evergreens,
and yet come up smiling.
There are many varieties of bulbs, and
some of the Dutch kinds are especially
expensive. But crocus and narcissus
bulbs can be bought for 10 and 15 cent3 a
dozen. Single tulips and the Roman
hyacinth are to be had for S3 cents a
dozen. The price of tho double tulip and
the double hyacinth depends on the na
tionality of the bulb and tho fame of Its
orlglnnl exploiter, but a dollar and a half
a dozen Is a fair avcrag price.
Gardening is regarded by many people
ns an expensive hobby to ride, but not
by physicians. It means sunshine and
tresh air and an Interest in tho out-of-doors.
It Ih really nip'e than an Interest,
for tho woman who plants a garden lives
In u state of constant and thrilling ex

COLD STORAGE MEAT
Method Involving Freezing- Rather
Than Mere Chilling: Favored.
In these days when cold storage, the
employment of preservatives In foods,
and the adulteration of food products are
being subjected to the most severe crltl
i ism, a discussion held by the Society of
Hrltish Medical Ofllcers of Health on tho
lefrlgeratlon of food, and reported In
the Lancet, should proe of Interest, tas
the Medical Itecord.
Dr. Ilauna, who opened the discussion,
referred to the fact that the United States
was not only no longer sending cattle to
Ureal IJrltaln, hut was taking for Its
own supply cattle from countries which
had hitherto exported almost exclusively
to Great Britain. He went on to point
ut that tho methods of refrigeration of
foudstuffs depended chiefly on the scieii
tirti fact that expanding air or vapor
izing substances, Mich as BUlphurlc acid,
carbonic add or ammonia, in assuming
the gaseous form abstracted heat from
the atmosphere or other bodies In the
Kresb meat was carried from distant
countries either as hard frozen meat or
hilled meat Chilled meat arrived in a
comlltlun teady for consumption and re
tained the characteristics of fresh meat
more closely than frozen meat, but the
cullling process required great care, and
tho transport needed constant supervls
,on The frozen method was the better
as legarded preservation, although it
sometimes damaged the cellular and
fibrous structure of the meat unless spe
clal care was taken In defrosting. Hanna
gave It as his opinion that meat when
thawed wuuld keep with proper care as
well as freshly killed meat after being
taken from tho refrigerator, even In
high temperature, a view not In accord
ance wiin popular opinion.
Of course, refrigeration or chilling of
foodstuffs Is necessary when these have
to be conveyed for long distances, as for
example, from North or South America
to Europe, but great care must be exer
cised both In the process itself and the
defrosting. That, however, animal food
thus treated does not undergo a certain
amount of deterioration is a view op
posed, at least, to popular ideas, and
certainly the suggestion that refrigera
tion may Improve tho payor of meat is
one not born out by experience.
AS YOU sit down to the nice brcak-A-
fast of fruit and cereal, and may
be a poached egg on toast, did
it ever occur to you to wonder what
the birds ate eating for breakfast at
this very minute? Of course, you
know they cat worms and grubs and
insects, but perhaps they like cereals,
too. Xoticc some time when you arc
walking where birds are and see if
you can find some tiiat cat grains ami
seed as well as worms.
The pretty little scarlet cardinal
that makes such a gay streak as he
flies across the garden likes seeds
very much better than grubs and
worms, and if you throw nut wheat,
he will surely visit your garden. In
the seed time of the year, when every
plant in the garden has its own little
pods of seed, you need not throw out
any bait, as he is wise enough to come
there and help himself of the feast
that Nature has spread for him.
All summer long a certain cardinal
had kept his eyes on a very beautiful
garden. Some day he was sure he
would get some extra fine food from
ihat garden. Above all, he had his
eye on the big tall sunflower way back
at the end of the yard. Early in sum
mer, this sunflower was a lovely big
blossom, so big and cheerful and sun
ny did he look that he made the
whole garden seem like one big smile.
But now the sunflower's big goldy
petals were all dried up and blown
away, and the soft velvety centre was
dry and hard with big fat seeds
You would think the flower was
prettiest when in blossom but the
cardinal wouldn't agree with you. He
didn't care a bit about a blossom
but a dead blossom full of seeds
that's different that's about the very
best thing to eat he knows of.
lluwcr was young was now old and
frail and easily bent.
The bird slid off into the air.
Even the weight of the dainty car
dinal bent the face of the old flower
so far front that the bird slid off into
"Well, well," said the puzzled car
dinal,' to himself and he began plan
ning what to do.
At last he decided to get them on
the fly, so he made a quick dash,
passed the flower, pecking out a seed
as he went.
Without stopping to even taste it,
lie dropped the seed and got another,
and then another, titl several seeds
lay on the ground by the flower.
Then he daintily alighted on the
ground and ate his fine breakfast in a
leisurely and gentlemanly fashion.

For days he watched the seeds dry
up with a soft peck he would tet
them, but no they were not quite
right, and with a whisk and a song
he flew away.
But finally a morning came when
the seeds were just right and he de
cided to stay for breakfast.
Round and round the flower he cir

child runs around a gaily lighted
