There is, as enemies of woman
suffrage allege, a marked differ
ence between women and men. In
Thursday's premature celebra
tion saloons were crowded with
men. Churches were crowded
with women, prayinsr in gratitude
for peace, and the safety of men
across the water.
That difference, however, does
not justify the theory that women
are unfit to share in making laws.
What a modern war ending!
The German high command tele

"You may come at such an hour
by such a road," and one civilian,
a nobleman and three German of

their subordinates start in auto

a troop of laborers to mend the
roads as they go.
