That person would be a very blind
old fogy indeed who failed to recognize
that full political rights for all women
in America are not far off. Never since
j 1 can remember have women been so
actively engaged in political work as
1 during the campaign this autumn in
! nearly every state in the Union. In the
large cities feminine politics has been
red hot. usually on the side of clean
government, it !s only just to say. In
Philadelphia there was actually a wom
an's official committee attached to one
of the parties. The women of this com
mittee and their representatives made
a house to house canvass among
"doubtful and illiterate" voters and
eloquently impressed their principles
on these. The ladies displayed the par
ty flag from the windows of their
houie. and they held parlor meetings to
which speakers and voters were invit-
; ed. In New York not only the orgau
! ized feminine political workers were
j busy as bees, but there were uuorgau
j ized ones who did something for iheir
' candidates on their own account. Mr..
cultured woman of Sw-disu birth, went
around among the voters of that na
tionality giving information, persuad
ing and distributing literature, with the
result that she gained not only vote
for her candidate, but money for his
campaign fund, which last she had not
at all asked for. Kach year more anil
more women campaign speakers are
employed by political parties, and some
of them are well paid for their elo
quence. Women may collect campaign
funds, distribute literature, hold meet
ings, gain thousands of votes for tin
men candidates and yet the doubled

not like it in any of these shapes, and

For centuries cod liver oil has been
recognized as the grandest of all body
building agents for wasted human
strength and vitality yet on account
of the disagreeable odor, taste and
heavy indigestible oil which envelopes
its curative elements, it invariably
clogs the system, upsets the stornaca
and its virtue is lost.
Now modern science has proved
that the oil or greasy part has no value
either as a food or medicine, and the
medicinal elements of which there are
i about fo different kinds in the cods
liver represent all t'.ie tonic-, body-building
and curative jhjvvc rs of this fa
mous old remedy.
After 2m yt-ars of Mudy two emi

way to separate all the.vi medicinal
elemc-nts from the oil and livers and
