CHURCH IS BEAUTIFIED
Broadway Is Made Brighter and
For several weeks painters and dec
orators have been busily engaged in
beautifying Broadway Presbyterian
church The interior of the church
auditorium, which formerly was grey
in color. Is now of a cream color. A
small border around the unoer wall is
tho only decoration. New chandeliers
have been Installed to take the place
of the old ones. The nine organ has
j been thoroughly overhauled. The
church is now brighter and certainly
; more attractive than formerly. Aside

SISTER HAMLIN STILL PURSUES BROTH
ER CLUM FOR. JOINT DEBATE
Mrs -Ella G. Bushnell Hamlin is still
carrying the chip on her shoulder,
waiting for Woodworth Clam to knock
it off and meet her ia joint debate on
the rights of women and their super
iority to men.
In the hopes of bringing Mrs. Ham
lin's challenge to a focus, tbe well
known jewelry firm of M. B. Kabstedt
Sons offer a $25 gold medal to the
winner. Charles Berkell of the Amer
ican offers the free use of his play
house and $150 in addition. But still
Mr. Clam is silent so much so that
his silence is becoming intense.
The wise ones declare that if Broth
er Clum and Sister Hamlin ever come
together, there will be a violent erup
tion of oratory and dazzling display
of rhetorical figures. One of the root
ers for the debate has even gone so
far as to suggest the tenor of the
colloquy when they come together.
His forecast follows:
Sister Hamlin This talk about you
men being superior to women is all
buncombe. Where would you men be
without woman's advice and counsel?
Wher do all great men get their ad
vice but from their wives? And let
me tell you. Mr .Clum, there is many
a so-called groat man in this world
who is only using his wifeJs ideas.
Brother Clum Possibly so, sister,
Sister Hamlin Possibly so? Well,
it is so. I can give you hundreds of
cases and I don't have to go out cf
this town either to find them. Let
me tell you further there is many a
woman who is not only giving her
husband free advice but is earning
the daily bread for both of them. Why
shouldn't a woman "vote? When you
see some of these bone-heads, who
simply because they are wearing trou
sers, believe they are entitled to a
monopoly of the ballot, it make me
sick . Why j
Brother Clum Just a minute, sis
ter. If the women wear trouserettes,
maybe they will give them the ballot.
Sister Hamlin Trouserettes! It's
none of your business what we women
wear. That s the trouble with you
men. You think we women have only
to deck ourselves out in gaudy colors
to please you. I tell you that we have
any proposition and

front this country today as you are.
Do you understand?
Brother Clum Well, ah, y-e-s, yes.
Sister Hamlin Well I am glad you
are coming my way. I like you per
sonally, Mr. Clum. You are a Una
fellow good looking too, but I want
to place you right on this suffrage
proposition. It is a serious question
with us. Our forefathers struck from
their limbs the shackles of despotism,
the surfs of Russia have been freed,
the negro slave no longer knows a
master. But we poor women, who
gave birth to these patriots, have no
vote in making the laws which govern
us. I tell you it is an outrage.
Brother Clum Yes, yes, sister.
Slsfer Hamlin I knew I would
bring you to my way of thinking. We
poor down-trodden, abused and perse
cuted women who have been the vic
tims of men's selfishness, deprived of
a vote at the ballot box. without a

This morning the carriers reported at
the office a half hour earlier than usual,
and the result was that the mall, which
was exceedingly heavy today, was de
livered at an early hour by the carriers.
As it is near the first of the month, the
mail was of course heavier than usual,
and as it was handled with such dis
patch, it is certain that the mail on
each Monday morning will be handled
readily. Besides meeting with the ap
proval of the people In general, the
order to close tbe office on Sunday
gives to the carriers and some of the
clerks one day of rest In seven.

NEW FILTER NOW
IN WORKING ORDER
Bnt Raw Water Will Not Be Elim
lnatd Entirely for Several
In 'speaking of the new Rock Island
filter plant, P. W. Sharp, superinten
dent of erection for tbe Pittsburg Fil
ter Man uf acta ring company, who has
charge of it, had the following to say:
"The plant Is now complete and in
working order. I would not advise
people to use city water without boil
ing, for the reason that at the time
the plant was started up there was
one basin containing 3,000,000 gallons
and another about 9,000,000, as well
as the entire pipe sysem of tho city.
It takes considerable time to elimin
ate this water in the manner in ;
which it is eliminated. Ordinarily it
means only four days' supply to the
city and provided that we could use
this four days' supply of the city we
could then give the filtered water.
But as it Is we have to turn the
filtered water into the raw water that
was already In the basins. Of course
the mixing of the filtered water with
the raw water permits a continuation
of the incubation of typhoid bacteria,
in the filtered water to a lesser ex
tent This process of eliminating the
raw water from the basins and mains
throughout the city would be tbe
same as If you would fill a pail of
murky water, empty part of it out
and then fill up again with pure, dis
tilled water. t Then, by emptying and
filling again,' and repeating the pro
cess, the time comes, eventually when
the water is reasonably pure.
"I have heard a report to the effect
that tbe filters were left In an unsan
itary condition when they were put in
to use; that the men on the work used
them for unsanitary purposes during
the period of 'construction. This Is ab
solutely untrue. Nothing of this sort
