WOMAN'S SACRED RIGHT
William T. Stead is going to out-Jiok Edward Jluk in the publication of a
paper lor women, lie proposes to issue a newspaper that is not a newijwpaper at
all. Ui ■«':' •■,
Tin's paper is to be devoid of news and is designed to appeal alike to the lady
in the parlor and the cook in the kitchen. Of course, no class of Hewn could be
expected to appeal to both these elements, bo it is a stroke of genius 011 the part of
tit. blend to leave the news out. lie is experienced enough and shrewd enough to
recognize the tact that the only kind of newspaper which can please all sort* of
women is ■ newspaper that la not a newspaper at all.
Stead's scheme will he journalism with a big J. It will be a sort of grocery, dry
good* and meat bulletin. It will be delivered in the mornings, after the men
lolks huve lett home, and the carriers will be prepared to take the housewife's or
rook's order for groceries, millinery, patent medicines, furniture, shoes, etc., and
hand them to Ihe proper tradesmen, who will deliver the goods during the after
It is intended to render all kinds of social service, to tell the women just what
they ought to do under all circumstances, and to serve as their guide,. philosopher
and friend at all times.
This paper is designed to be an unabridged dictionary of sociology for women.
When it arrives all that a London housewife will have to do will be to glance
. over the ready made menus, j the pictured hats, the authenticated gowns, nod as
sent -iii.i receive they by the next; d.'livery.
it is intended to make life one long sweet song for the women.
And right there Mr. Stead makes a fatal mistake.
Women do not want anybody else to do their shopping for them. They will
not have it. liargain-cha&ing is a sacred right that women will light for to the
> What joy and satisfaction would the average woman have in life if her mar
i« luting and her shopping were delegated to Stead and his understudies?
None. The women will not tolerate the plan for a moment.

but human nature. ,
THE RIGHT TO SECEDE -
in all the criticism that is applied to the method by which Panama became free
no blame is to be attached to the people of Panama themselves.
They had good' ground for grievance. Colombia ■ had become an insufferable
tyrant, oppressing the people of Panama by outrageous tuxes and restraining them
not only in their political rights but in their commercial and industrial oppor
Panama might have repeated, almost word for i word, the declaration of inde
pendence of the American colonists... Sue suffered taxation without representation,
, her official* were aliens; standing armies of the oppressor were continually quar
tered upon her.
One of: the ; provisions of .the constitution of 18S9 gave the executive at the capi
tal, Bogota, the right to appoint: all officials in the department. In Panama the
governor*, judges and other officials have been imported from other parts of the
republic and the people of Panama practically ignored. During the last six years
there have been seven governors, and of these only one was a native, of the depart
ment, tod he held the position only: for a few months.
During the existence of the revolution which ended in November, lasting some
thing over three years the department of Panama has ; been mercilessly taxed.-
The monopoly of salt, tax for beef killing, introduction of tobacco, matches and
making of ice has been a national monopoly, and not only did the people suffer
from exorbitant prices, but their local government got nothing from this '
Never in all the history of Panama has the general government built a single
mile of load or erected a school house within her territory, • nor was Panama per-*
mitted to levy local taxes for these purposes. Every cent that Panama could yield
in taxes was extorted from her by the general government, and the utmost cruelties
wero practiced in their collection. /;'">:• (
Panama had for years been ripe for revolution, but the leader and the match to
the powder were wanting. . ■\_ '
Then came tha canal treaty. The hopes of the people were raised. The ratiti
. cation by the United States senate wag hailed with shouts and rejoicing. It was
the life of the department of Panama. It meant millions upon millions spent in
the tone Of the cities, Panama and Colon. Imagine, then, the chagrin when the ca
bies brought the news that the Bogota government, forgetful of ■, it« own . inter-,
cats and those of the department of Panama, was disinclined to disapprove the
treaty, and finally the feeling engendered when it did so. This was the last stroke.
It united all parties and all classes. They forgot former, affiliation*, old sores 'were'
healed, and with one acclaim the people and the army determined to be free.
The action of the United States in throwing its ponderous weight into the bal
ance may bo criticised by some. But there is no blame to be laid upon Panama.
The better HBM of all humanity will approve her revolt and be glad that she lias
thrown off the hateful bonds.

NAMED IN DIVORCE COURT
NEW YORK, Dec. 22.—When Mrs. An
drew I*. Carter, formerly the beautiful
Pauline Gray of Georgia, secured a Da
kota divorce and placed her 8-year-old, son
in a military school, the did not dream
of the sensational denouement involving
the names of Colonel A. A. Pope, the mill
ionaire bicycle and automobile manufac
turer; Major General Dan Sickles, the
hero of ninny battlefields, and W. Preston
Harrison, brother of Chicago's mayor, but
these men have been named by her ex
husband in an affidavit filed in a Chatta
nooga court, as reasons why she should
not obtain possession of the boy.: .
Mrs. Carter thought herself safe after
she had placed the boy in a school and
secured her separation. Suddenly she was
informed that the father had spirited her
son to Tennessee, out of the jurisdiction
of the Now York courts. Then began a
battle in the Tennessee courts; and just
as the ex-husband seemed to be winning,
Mrs. Carter's attorneys executed a flank
movement by applying to the courts of
New York for an absolute divorce and j
custody of her child. Her grounds were l
statutory, and she named several; promi- :
nent women in the ease. A restraining
order was granted, holding the case in
abeyance until the New York courts de
cide the divorce proceedings.
Carter in his affidavit says that his for

GEORGE SUTTON. WONDER
OF THE BILLIARD WORLD
MILWAUKEE, Wis., Dec. 22.—The
moct wonderful billiard player in the
world is (jeorge H. Sutton of Milwaukee.
While he is one of the dozen brilliant
players of the age, this fact is more re
markable because Sutton has no hands
with wiiieh to hold the cue. That he la
capable of doing things that lew others
who have both hands can do is proved m
every shot he makes. With almost light
ning rapidity he plays; chalks the cue,
scores and makes spectacular position
shots. At straight rail, three-ball billiards
he is like Jake Schaefer, can play all
night without missing a shot.
Button's knowledge of the game is equal
almost to that of tSchoefer's. In delicacy
of touch, nursing the balls, and judgment,
this armless wonder is not excelled even
by the wizard. He is not a specialist in
■any one shot; carom, masse, rail "shot,
■ raw, follow, drives and the Frank Ives
mead-ball shot are all superbly played.
When the cue ball is close to the rail
Sutton rests the cue across his left elbow
joint and holds the butt in the right el
bow joint. In all other shots he holds
the cue with the stumps of arms, which
are six or seven inches long.
When making a masse he nllows tlie
cue to rest on his shoulder, holding near
the point of the cut with his stumps.
Generally he rests the cue on a bridge,
GREAT DEER SHOOTING

OTTAWA, Dec. 21.—The Ottawa valley

America and one of the healthiest. Well

these hunting grounds, figures may be
quoted. The number of deer shot by
hunters in Ontario this autumn was near

nearly as large.
So far as the authorities know, at least
10,000 deer were killed during the season.

easy of access by rail than are those of
Quebec, but in the latter province dcci
are more plentiful.
The grounds are frequented by Indians
and trappers, whose services may be en
gaged by the use of greenbacks.
The deer are not being exterminated and
more are being shot each year. The gov
ernment employs game wardens, whose
business it is to see that the game is pre
served. Indians are permitted to shoot
deer all the year round, but are not al
lowed to sell the venison.
