WOMEN'S CLUBS SELL
Puritan Maidens, Daintily Clad,
' Dispense Sandwiches and
Coffee to Paraders.
An Interesting phase of the "votes for
women" movement appeared today
when members of the Federated Wom
en's Clubs, many of whom were "antii" j
provided coffee and sandwiches and
later beans and brown bread to the tired
marchers at so much per head. The
money will be used to erect a new club
house for the organization.
Daintily clad Puritan maidens in the
costumes of our grandmothers sold
sandwiches and coffee from two hugt
vans which passed up and down Penn
sylvania avenue. The vans were fur
nished by the courtesy or one of the big
storage and van companies of the city,
and the women made the bread at one
of the leading bakeries. Merchants -of
the city provided practically all the in
fjedientj for the luncheon.
"Coffee. 5 cents, doughnuts, and sand
- wlches." These pretty, whlte-aproned
women reaped a harvest, and the new
club" house Is already. In sight. It Is de
clared. Near Continental Hall, Seventeenth
and D streets, a huge tent was erected.
Ilpre as the head of the parade arrived
were passed, out thousands of plates of
baked beans, after the most approved
Boston style, brown bread, "like mother
used to make," more sandwiches, more
coffee, more doughnuts, and all sorts of
good things, eagerly seized and devour
ed by the hungry women Just arrived
from their long walk. It was a great
success, officials of the Federated Clubs
declare. More. than 5,000 women were
concerned in the work and forty or more
committees assisted Mrs. M. K. S. Davis,
chairman of the committee on arrange
ments. New Reprieve Likely

RICHMOND, March 3. Governor

Mgr, Russell Declares Cause
Would . Have Evil Results
in Conditions Today.
"I see nothing to be gained by woman
suffrage and I see much to fear," said
Mgr. W. T. Russell, in his address Jn
St. Patrick's Church last night
"As the Catholic church has not
spoken officially on the subject of
woman suffrage and no Catholic is au
thorized to praise or condemn the move
ment In the church's name or with her
authority, whatever Catholic church
men may say can have only the weight
of individual authority," said Mgr. Rus
sell. "If I were convinced that the major
ity of the women of the land demanded
tne vote, 1 snouia say: '.Liei inem nave
it.' but I cannot witness without a
feeling of indignation a small noisy
minority of women trying to ride rough
shod over the vast majority of home
keeping and home-loving women and
compelling them to accept the suffrage
whether they will it or not.
"If the majority wish It, let them
have it. but I can not see how the prob
able goodwould balance the probable
evil results. If by a discrimination the
vote could be given to good women
only, the ballot might be Improved by
woman suffrage. But as the proportion
of the corrupt woman wno would re
ceive suffrage would be as large in
proportion to the whole woman's vote
as the proportion of corrupt male vot
ers, we should merely Increase the
quantity without Improving the quality
of votes.'' Further the number of good
women who should remain away from
the polls would most likely be larger
than the number of good men who now
do so. The corruptible and corrupt ele
ments of womankind would just as
surely take advantage of this easy way
to get money." c

PLANNED FDR WEEK
Impressive 'Series Produced on
Steps of the Treasury by
Women Vote Seekers.
An impressive series of tableaux
representing woman's demand for equal
voting rights was staged In the open
air on the Treasury Department portico
simultaneous with the parade. Some ot
the most famous of American women
participated In this demonstration. It
was opened by a bugle blast which had
been relayed up Pennsylvania avenue
by heralds, announcing the start of tae
suffrage parade. The tableaux lasted
until the parade came abreast the
Treasury Department, when those' In
the allegorical scenes joined the proces
sion and marched on to Continental
Hall, where a mass meeting was held.
Nearly one hundred women nartiel-
pated in the symbolical tableaux, which
were designed to show woman's straggle
ior -xne oauot.
The "stage" was the stone nagging
plaza, or promenade, above the first
tier of stone steps leading to the Treas
ury entrance. This was at Fifteenth
street and Pennsylvania avenne op
posite the statue of General Sherman.
Maay See Tableau.
Opposite the "stage" was a large
grandstand seating 3,000, especially
built by the- suffragettes and crowded
to Its capacity at J6 per seat. Above
the "stage" to the east was the Treas
ury Inaugural reviewing stand; To the

HOW I MADE
MY HAIR GROW
Woman With Marreloosly Beaattfnl
Hair Gives Staple Hose Prescript '
tlon Which She Use With
Moat Remarkable Reasdss.
I waa greatly troubled with daadreC sad
falling hair. I tried many advertised hair
preparations and various prescriptions, bat
they all signally failed: many of them, mad
my hair creasy o It was impossible to comb
It or do It us properly. I think that many of
the things I tried were positively Injorlona
and from my own experience I cannot too
strongly caution yon against sains- prepara
tions containing wood alcohol and other pois
onous substances. I believe they injur ths
roots of the hair. After my lone lut of fail
ures. I finally found a simple prescription
which r can unhesitatingly state ,1 beyond
doubt the moat wonderful thing for the hair
I have ever seen. Many of my friends have
also vscd It. and obtained' wonderful effects
therefrom. It not only Is a powerful atlmn
lant to the growth of the hair and for re
storing gray hair to its natural, color, but it
la equally good far removing dandruH, giring
the hair life and brilliancy, etc.. and for the
purpose of keeping the, scalp In first-class
condition. It also makes the hair easier to
comb and arrange In nice form. I have a
friend who used It two months and during
that time It has not only stopped tho falling
of 'his hair but It practically restored all of
his hair to Its natural color. Tou can obtain
the Ingredients for making this wonderful
preparation from almost any druggist. The
prescription Is as follows:
Bay Rum, 6 ox.-: Menthol Crystals'. 4
drachm: Lavona de Composes, i ox. If you
like It perfumed add a" few drops ot To
Kalon Perfume, which mixes perfectly with
tho other Ingredients. This, however. Is not
Apply night and morning: rub tboroujhly
into the scalp.
Go to your druggist and ask for an eight
ounce bottle containing six ounces of Bay
Hum; also one-halt drachm of Menthol Cris
tate, and a two-ounce tottlo of Lavona da
Composee. Mix the Ingredients yourself at
jour onn home. Add the Menthol Crystals
to the Bay Rum and then pour In the lavona
de Composee" and add the To-Kalon Per
fume. Let It stand one-half hour and It Is
ready for use
