As a motherless child of -four she was taken by her father, Oliver. S,
Westover, an expert mineralogist, from their home in Iowa to the wild
pioneer life of Colorado. There, as she grew up, she rode and hunted with
her father, studied under his loving tutorship, geology and history and the
broader teachings of Nature, in the great wild open-air-school, where she
handled a rifle, a lariat, and the bow and arrow at about the age when girls
have hardly put aside their dolls.
Those were dangerous day3 when she and her father seven times made

United States senator would come to
in 12 years, i3 going to have consid
erably more annoyance than he bar

sentiment unfavorable to the -Wiscon

Many senators feel Stephenson and
his campaign methods, by reason of
the wide publicity they are receiving,
are working an injustice through pub

do not purchase their seats in the sen
