The sale is necessarily for cash only. The genuineness of the discounts, from the ac'.ual regular selling
prices, necessitates a strictly cash basis but look at the great savings and spend all you possibly can.

Chicago. Jan. 4 The argument, so;
often brought forth by anti-6uffragista, j
that woman's suffrage Is botfhd to
make women's masculine, has just re
ceived a severe blow at the hands of
Dr. Anna Blount, a prominent Chica
go suffragist. On a careful investiga
tion or ine matter, sne axrivea ai inei
conclusion tnat the afternoou tea, the
most feminine of all social affairs, la
the best means of extending suffrage
educational work. So a series of teas
has been arranged for every Friday
afternoon in the Chicago suffragists'
headquarters, to which all who are in
terested in the cause, either actively t
or casually, afe invited. j
"Anti-suffragists will be especially
welcome," says Mrs. Blount, "and we
hope they will forget the strange no
tion that suffragists befcome strange,
sexless creatures when they find we
enjoy a bit of a chat over a cup of
well brewed tea as much as the wom
an who has no'thought beyond a box
of candy and the matinee.'
Mrs. Grace Wilbur, Trout, the new
state president, is enthusiastic over!
the suffrage pink teas, as she delights; J j
ir. calling them, and will cooperate:!
with Dr. Blount to make them a sue-; r
cses. "These Friday afternoon teas 1
will interest many women who are ii
not particularly interested In tbe gen-;
eral suffrage work," she declares.! i
"We have so many literary women in ; R
our ranks that it will be an easy mat-j M
ter to obtain excellent revlewes of the k
late bookSj j J
"I never scorn the pink tea. t

cial life, and can be put to good use
by suffragists in their educational ill
When the idea was first conceived
by Dr. Blount, it was with sole object

which Dr. Blount is chairman. "Any ,
number of splendid books bearing on ,
the subject of woman's suffrage have
been brought out by the publishers

Dr. Blount recently. "It is surpris-:
