Rev. Anna ,Howard Shaw, presider
of .the National American Woma
Suffrage association, lecture on "Th

sentence "all republics have grow

character and decayed along tlh
strength of the female character.
!Niss Shaw built arguments for thi
suffrage movements. She said:
"Men have been talking about the:

*that we don't talk more than a
ought, bhut we don't fight, and that:
the very reason many men say a
should not be enfranchised. Or
class of men that always tall
against women voting because the
can't fight is the class that sern
substitutes to the army. Now v
could do that, too, for, of course, t1

to fight and die for us.
They put us on pedestrals wi1

hadn't been conscious of it until th

"There are never any monumen

"Once I had a discussion with D
s. Buckley on woman's suffrage, and h
e told me that women were so em(
tional that if they got into politi<
they would go crazy. . Of course,
e didn't want to go crazy, even for m
, country's sake, nobody wants to, bt
I decided to look up statistics.
- found that in Wyoming, where w<
a men had been in politics for te
L years, there was only one insane w(
man. Mr. Spencer says that whil

is superior in politics to the emc

, tended a convention of these caln

saw the calm, legal minds slap th

, Amid rapturous applause, th

- the 200 women and the three me
who had timidly ventured in hurrie
y to the platform to greet her.
Mrs. Emma L. Blackwell, presider
of the club, announced that a so<

Value of Freight Line That Carrie
It is claimed that the undergroun
d railroad of the city of Chicago w~
in a great measure relieve the cor
gested condition of the streets of th:
city, not so much by the diversic
,f traffic below the surface as by th
semoval of the great number<
n1 eams heretofore required to handl
n the freight traffic of the great wesi
e ern metropolis, says the Scientifi
n The first instance of this kind wa
e recently accomplished in an exper
-mental manner by the transport:
l tion of the mails by this subsurfac
1, line instead of by horses, conveyin
e the bags across the city from one d
n pot to another. The entire trans
e cantineal mail had to be transpor1
e edin hismanner, and much dela

back again, independent of that whic
r frequently happened to the wagor

I the thronged streets of the busy cit:
it Connection had been established be
o tween the stations of the Lak
y Shore and ,Milwaukee Central ar
gthe Chicago, Milwaukee, and St. Pai
-and upon the completion of the wor
the mails were transferred directl

n Secretary Wilson Paints Glowing
d Picture of Rural Life.
; In his annual report James Wil
s son, secretary of agriculture, after
,h showing that the products of United
u States farms in one year are worth
e $4,900,000,000, states that the hens
of the United States lay i,666,ooo,ooo
e dozens of eggs a year, or enough in
h one month to pay the interest of the
is entire national debt for one year.
It Mr. Wilson figures that the corn
s would be sufficient to pay off the
n debt. The cotton crop, he estimates
r. Secretary Wilson says that all the
be gold mines of the entire world have
not produced since Columbus dis
-s covered America, greater value of
I gold than have the farmers of the
y country in two years. This year's
t product of the' farms is more than
six times the capital stock of all the
national banks, three times the
n gross earnings of the railways, four
times the value of all mineral pro
e duced, twice the sum of the imports
11 and exports, and comes within three
n quarters of a billion dollars of
equalling the value of all manufac
tures for the year 1900.
Secretary Wilson is pleased with
the bureau of plant industry, which
after eight years' work had produc
e ed an orange that will grow as far
r north as North Carolina, and is proof
ir against the frosts of Florida, thus
insuring a crop. For several years
e the experiments for an orange re
sulted in a lemon, but this year a
n sweet orange was produced and Sec
d retary Wilson ate one of them on
Thanksgiving day with his dinner.

posits in banks have greatly in
