I think that man is greater than
woman for a good many reasons:

First Negative by Hattie Billups
Woman's life has mostly been kept
in the shadow, as a maker of -the
home and the keeper of the fireside.

whom she has struggled to plant with
in their heart the principles and
qualities, that are essential to achieve

raising and instructing the children
of mankind and striving to plant
within them, the seed that produce

The world cannot forget the mother
of a famous mai, because it knows
that she, is the reason of his being
great. No one can so inspire a man
to noble purposes as a noble woman.
Andrew Jackson the warrior and pre
sident, had his mightest reinforce
ments in his plain wife, whose inar
tistic attire, was the amusement of
the elegant circles, in which she was
invited. Washington, who broke the
chain that held America in foreign
vassalage; wore for forty years a
chain around his neck, holding the
miniature likeness of her, who had
been his greatest inspiration, whether

The obportunity has not come to:
woman as often as it has to man; stilP
n- every field of endeavor in which she
daas particippted, she has -been as
aui'siis as man.
Betsy Ross made the first flag of
America, General Washington and his
men cut six points to the stars, Betsy
Ross had to show them their mistake,
ihe cut five points instead of six for
the stars. Poccahontas warned the
early settlers that the Indians were
,oing to raid on them, preventing, per
laps, the complete extinguishation of
the first permanent English colony in
America. She also saved their lead
Dr's life, Captain John Smith.
It seems to me that woman has done
more for God and humanity in every
way, than has man. Compare man's
dlemise with that of women, such as
Harriet -Newell rendering a life time
sacrifice for the redemption of her
country. Joan of Arc leading her
country to victory. Florence Night
ingale the first war nurse and Queen
Elizabeth who ranked among the
shrewdest and important rulers in
English history. The growth of Great
Britain into a world power is due
largely to the wisdom she exercised
during her reign.
I think a man is greater than a wo
man in every respect. From the be
ginning, God made man first, and he
has been first and foremost ever since.
Go back to the beginning of history,
and see what man has done for the
world, and note how few women are
mentioned in the pages of history.
Our beautiful country, would still
be called the Sea of Darkness, had
Columbus not discovered it. We would
still have the primitive idea, that the
earth was flat, and be afraid to ven
ture too far to the edge, for fear we
might'fall off, had it not been for the
perseverence of man, that proved the
earth was round.
Look, at the men, that have fought

All of our rulers, presidents. law

Man has indeed conquered the
realms of the universe. He now
travels by ways that civilization has
never dreamed of before, he now pilots
his plane through the misty air, and
plows his ships through the dark sea.
Our greatest writers, poets etc.,
were men. Daniel Webster who gave
us the wonderful dictionary, William
Shakespeare the greatest play writer
the world has ever producem', and Mil

Man has succeeded in every realm
of industry and enterprise, since the
