nothing more conducive of real manhood than shooting. You

pleasure from this than from anything else. <JWe don't have

In case you arrange for your farm loan at this bank
it is quite probable we will be able to save you
money before you pay it all off. We give the bor
rower the option of paying $100 or any multiple
on any interest paying date, the interest ceasing on
the amount paid. That may mean quite a saving
in interest in five years.
We pay you the money as soon as the abstract
shows clear title, thus avoiding the usual delay in
having papers sent east for inspection.
We have a large amount of money available which
we desire to loan, with well improved farm land
as security, and will be pleased to have you call or
write to us for terms in case you wish to borrow
money on this class of security.

Wifa of Democratic Candidate Gives
Out Latter Taking Strong Stand on
New York.—For the first time since
Woodrow Wilson became the Demo
cratic presidential candidate has Mrs.
Wilson appeared. She attended In
person her husband's daily conference
with reporters, although heretofore
she has made special requests that she
be not quoted nor written about in the
What Mrs. Wilson wished to have
fully understood was that If she be
comes the first lady of the land she
will not, as has been said In a widely
distributed Interview, have packages
of cigarettes In her personal desk at
the White House and indulge in smok
ing them with her callers.
Through Governor Wilson, Mrs. Wil.
son asked that publicity be given to a
letter she had written to the editor of
the State Journal nt Columbus, 0..
repudiating an alleged interview with
her in which she defended cigarette
smoking for women. The interview
had come to her in a letter signed
"American Citizen." which said:
Dear Madam—l can scarcely think of
any greater calamity to the young wom
en of the nation tlian to read such a
preachment as your Interview offers them.
I am a workinsman, and I see men lose
their jobs almost every day because they
are incapacitated tor work by the use of
the cigarette. If smoking does this for
strong men what will it do for girls and
The "interview was indeed a cor
dial Indorsement of the woman smok
er. Here are some of its assuring
phrases, nil credited to Mrs. Wilson:
"A wouiun writer for a syndicate of
Sunday newspapers asked Mrs. Wood
row Wilson if she agreed with Ger
trude Atherton's opinion of the smok
ing of cigarettes by women. She smil
ingly exhibited three cigarette boxes
piled In the corner of her desk, all but
" 'Why shouldn't n woman smoke if
she enjoys it?' sue queried.
" 'Why hasn't sj;t> just ;is much right
to a cigarette us a man? Certainly I
agree with Mrs. Atherton that any ex
isting prejudice against women smok
ing is to the lust silly and absurd.
" 'Smoking cigarettes is a question
of manners, not morals. It promotes
" 'Some women feel that a cigarette
calms their nerves, and helps their
brains into working order. Personally
smoking diffuses my thoughts instead
of concentrating them. I enjoy It as I
enjoy ufter dinner coffee. Both are
pleasant ways of ending and finishing
off; both add to conviviality and good
The editor of the Ohio State Journal,
It was clear, had been much Incensed
at the apologies for the cigarette habit
among women attributed to Mrs. Wil
son, as he wrote on Aug. 10 an edito
rial In which he called for the defeat
of Governor Wilson or a repudiation
from his wife. If there was no mis
take about It, he wrote, "Mrs. Wood
row Wilson shouldn't be mistress of
the White House."
If the Ohio editor was emphatic Mrs.
Wilson was certainly not less so. Aft
er the reporters had said they would
gladly publish her letter to the Ohio
editor she asked for an hour's time In
which to write one. This was what
Dear Sir—l have just received a copy of
the Journal with your editorial entitled
"Smoking Women," and I beg leave to In
dignantly deny the statement that I ap
prove of women smoking cigarettes. Tha
Interview upon which your editorial was
based Is a pure invention. I intensely dls
like the cigarette smoking habit for wom
en—in fact, bo strong is my feeling on the
subject that my real danger lies in being
unjust and unkind In my Judgment of
those who differ with me in this respect.
But certainly no woman In our house
hold ever has or ever will smoke. Quits
apart from the bad taste of it, I believe
with you that It has an extremely injuri
ous effect on the nerves.
ELLEN A. WILSON.
(Mrs. Woodrow Wilson.)
Governor Wilson, in approving the
letter sent out by Mrs. Wilson, offered
what he thought might prove an ex
planation for the interview.
"I do not think It was maliciously In-
Tented," he said. "There is a rather
well known writer who signs herself
Mrs. Wilson Woodrow, and she no
doubt has been confused with Mrs.
Mrs. Wilson Woodrow was formerly
married to a relative of Governor Wil
son, and it Is understood that her views
on the matter of women who smoke
are different from those held in the
household of the Democratic candidate.
