"WIVES AND FEMALES"
A. number of women in Washington, D. C, society are sorely peeved at
the wording ofan invitation to a reception given by Sec'y of the Navy
Daniels. NavaT" officers and their "wives and other femaleYelatives" were
invited to attend. It is the use of the word "female" that hs aroused the
ire of the women of the capital.
Should the sweetness and happiness of the modern woman's life be em
bittered by calling the members of the fair sex "females"? Nay!-A thou
sand times, nay! Yes, eleven or twelve hundred times, nay!' What though
the Bible says "male and female made He them," or the splendid women
of the Victorian era were satisfied to worthily live tbeir lives as "females"?
Is there any reason that the society dames of Washington, D, C, should be
referred to as such? Not much! Not on your tintype. At least not on the
tintype of a suffragette.

through brotherhood, not through selfishness. .
Live and let live.
