thu I In if.
It Is easy for us to sen In tho first adventure
of wolii"ii Into national politics a sheer anchor
for tho republic. Women are und have always
been Infemtely national and Intensely patriotic.
They will ever remain so. That they uro qtilto
ns discriminating as inert In abundantly proven,
nnd that, their opinion responds to prcrlsuly tho
natnn itrKUineiitii that appeal to men, scums ulno
, A 'very danKcrous coiicIuhIoii on tho part of
politicians would bo the usHiimptlou that bo
causu a vast imijorlty of women voted with tho
republican party in I9SU, they are to be counted
on an f,nfo!y republican. That, It seems to u.t,
Is far from tho truth. Women are not koIiik to

bunt, feature of woman suffraKo.

An soon, ns ho learned that the republicans

ously happy. That he had been
ill Inking was obvious, yet ho seemed
pot at all elated bemuse of that,
but un U' couiu of" something deeper
I was tingling with rcBcniment.
He had spent jipurs, the duy bufoio,
(.ailing on Ulnn'chc -Orton, how did
1 know that hu had 1101 been there
again this afternoon? Ho ate very
little dinner, but emptied his gli.su
Several times. And he talked, .allied
gaily, as a person talks when tome

When 1 begged him not to drink
any more, lie hecumu repentant, find
pushed his glass away. Then, as wo
sipped our coffee, lie told mu a
little Just unough to glvo me a hint
as to the cause of his troubled ac

'Tim. damned Hcotl thought he
was mighty smart," he said, upropon
of untiling. 1 fairly held my breath,
hoping ho would go un.
"What did lie do?" I could wait
Tried lo bluff mo! He rnn up
against the wrung fellow, I cuu tell
ou. Got cold feci and tried to make

No. what ivnile ou ililnlt It was

I was tired. The emotion I hid
