With praise for the Pennsylvania State
Suffrage organization, Mrs. Beatrice
Forbes-Robertson Hale, the suffrage or

this morning predicted that suffrage
would be countrywide within a very few
years. Mrs. Hale was the guest today of
Dr. Eleanor C. Jones', 1531 North 15th
"I have Just concluded my tour through
Western Pennsylvania," Mrs. Hale said,
"and I r.m very much Impressed with the

of suffrage. I confidently believe this
change has spread nil over the country.
"I feel vary hopoful of Massachusetts,
Pennsylvania, New Jersey nnd New

at the first vote, we will then poll a good

Mr, gamma, one of the speakers at the
meeting last nlsht, should nave used the
expression that suffrage here will assume
the proportions of a 'sex light,' for the
expression & unfitting.
"There Is no hatred In this country be
tween men and women as to the ques.
tlon of suffrage," Mrs. Hale declared,
"The mind "f the American woman does
not provoke hatred. I think the respect
and attention accorded the women in the
first Philadelphia parade by tho men was
wonderful. It was such a contrast to the
manner of tho English men. But mill
taritm really does not express the actual
attitude of the English woman. It comes
from the minds of only two persons, Mr.
Pankhurst and Chrlstobal, her daughter.

The World's Greatest Furniture Sale

which the assortment is probably greater than that of any three ordinary larg fur

This furniture store of several acres is only large enough to Bhow samples.

kind mean to people with good money to invest m the things that go to make a worth
Don't you think there is bound to be economy, good and real, in this grqup?
Doesn't it seem reasonable to say that the quantity purchased compensates the maker
for' letting go some of his usual profit?
There is the most delightful lot of Jacobean oak dining room furniture here
that we have ever had, but all of it being at halved prices we can't say much about it,
because large as the assortment is, it is bound to go out quickly.
