Each generation finds the duties
of woman different from those of
the preceding generation, and the wo
man who insists on living the life
suitable to her grandmother neither
gets nor gives the most. She is born
in this day and must live in it.
Within the last few months men
have made us women their equal,
politically. We are not equal in the
sense of knowledge of political ma
chinery because it is human nature to
give little thought to those matters
in which one has small power to
move. It is but a question of a very
short time, however, before these de
tails will be mastered. As long as we
women hold to a desire to serve hon
estly and get the best government
for the community in which we live,
we can make few mistakes.
Women look at matters quite dif
ferently from men. Moral issues
stand above those of business; and
education has nothing to do with par
ty. It is for us to read ali sides of
each question as it arises, to consider
it impartially and to give the cause
or person support or otherwise with
out rancor or bias as it is meritori
ous or influences others that are.

Serious Results from Colds.
Colds not only cause a tremendous
financial loss but are also a serious
injury to every one who contracts

TEN REASONS WHY I WILL JOIN
THE W. C. T. U.
Because it is distinctly an organi
zation for Home Protection. It labors
for the best interests of every home,
for the protection of every hoy and
girl and the welfare of future gen
Because it is a Christian organiza
tion uniting women of every creed
in bonds of common interest, thus
giving to each broader conceptions
of what others are doing. It promotes
a closer fellowship and a unity of
thought and action in behalf of uni
versal welfare which cannot be over
come by the forces of evil.
Because it means to its members
growth in Christian experience and
service, thus helping - all to become
better and wiser wives and mothers.
Because its varied lines of endeav
or offer unlimited opportunities for
service. Each department of work
presents to every mother an appeal
along the line of community needs.
Because" it had a large part in the
education of public sentiment which
resulted in State and National Prohi
bition, and is equally competent to
do as much for other needed reforms.
It deserves my support.
Because it stands for civic right
eousness and the larger participation
of women in public affairs.
Because it fighs for the prohibi
tion of the liquor and opium traffic
in all countries and the eradication
of drunkenness and other vices,
which so often render futile the work
of Christian missionaries in other
lands. Breweries and distilleries pro
hibited in the United States are be
ing installed in large numbers and
on an immense scale by United States
citizens in Mission Lands. I will join
the fight to stop that.
Because the forces of unrighteous
ness are united to set aside the 18th
Amendment to the Federal Constitu
tion or nullify its good effects by
non-enforcement, therefore women
to whom the integrity of the home
and the welfare of the family make
highest appeal should unite to main
tain the supremacy of laW and make
total abstinence the universal habit
of the people.
Because the work for great moral
reforms cannot be done by the
church alone. It must be done by leg
islative and political as well as edu
cational and religious methods. The
W. C. T. U. may follow each line
and is expert in all.
Because the well defined plans for

WHAT LEONARD WOOD SAYS.
Major-General Wood, in writing
for the Metropolitan Magazine for
November has the following to say
about the Eighteenth Amendment:
"There is no question but that the
overwhelming sentiment of our peo
ple today is in favor of prohibition,
and that those who are looking for
political assets in which to trade will
gain rather than lose by standing
squarely for the Eighteenth Amend
"There is, it is true, less activity
at present by those who are in favor
of prohibition than there was prior
to the action by the states on the
Amendment. This simply means that
patriotic and law abiding citizens
and organization support the enforce
ment of the laws of the nation and
that they have confidence that the
Government is going to see that the
Amendment is enforced. If there is
any ultimate laxity in so doing, this
same element will, eventually, take
the necessary steps to secure the en
forcement of the law.
"There has been a great decrease
in crime and in the number of ac
cidents. More money is spent for ne
cessities, such as food, clothing, etc.,
and as a result there has been a
marked diminution in the demands
for charity. Women and children are
better taken care of. There is much
less dissipation, and there has been
no corresponding increase in the use
of drugs, although this has been held
as sure to occur.
"From the knowledge of the ef
fect of the steady use of alcoholic
liquors we can expect, with confi
dence, great eventual improvement
in the physical and mental quality
of the children to be born, now that
these drinks are no longer available.
We can look for greater economic
efficiency, a continued decrease in
crime, decrease in vice diseases and
a better race physically and moral
ly. These are results worth while."

Money Invested in Government

As a result of patriotic work done
m the schools of the country the
amount of money now invested in
government savings securities ex
ceeds the cost-of the Spanish-Ameri

compiled. The national debt was in

the war with Spain, and it cost about
$400,000,000 to build and open the
Panama Canal. The amount of money
in Savings Stamps, the report from
Washington shows, is more than
This is taken to indicate the steady
growth of the thrift and savings
movement in the United States. Much
of the money invested last year by
school children in the government's
little savings securities was earned
' by them, and a large part of it
probably would have been spent
wastefully but for the savings socie
ties which were active in eo many of
the schools. In this federal reserve
district, which embraces Maryland,
the 'District of Columbia, Virginia,
West Virginia, North Carolina and
South Carolina, there were last ses?
sion more than 11,000 savings soci
eties in the public schools.
All of the normal schools in the five
states were visited last summer by
Miss Mary G. Shotwell, director of the
educational division of the War Loan

RURAL WOMEN WILL '

To Apply Wise Principles of Thrift |

"Shackles or Shekels-which?"
The question is being asked ap
proximately 2,000 rural women in this
federal reserve district, with the re
quest , that they act as key women
who in turn will ask it of their neigh- j
bors. The query is put by the Woman's
Division of the district War Loan Or- j
ganization, which is establishing a
more personal contact than ever be- j
fore with the women who have it in ,
their power to render an invaluable j
patriotic service in making thrift a ,
part of our national life.
It is hoped to put squarely up to
every woman in rural communities |
the necessity for her to make a de- j
liberate choice between the inde- |
pendence that comes with money sav* .

curities as government Savings ?

when there is no systematic saving, j
Splendid response and co-operation ?
have already been gained from the i
farm women reached, and it ls plan- ?
ned to build the thrift movement here j
this winter largely upon their help.
Home demonstration clubs, rural j
school improvement leagues, the fed- .
erated women's clubs o' the state and
many other organizations will take up ?
again the systematic study and prac
tice of thrift. Suggestive programs ?
including an outline study of prob

gets and other interesting literature
will be used by them in continuation
of plans that proved widely popular
last year. Societies and individuals

paign, who for any reason have not
yet received this literature, are asked
to write for it to Mrs. Eudora Ram

Through their clubs and as Indivi
