FOR EQUAL SUFFRAGE
rrellncsef Yesterday Aftcraooaa

At the afternoon session yesterday of
the Woman's Suffrage convention in Mo
line, Mrs. J. H. Wright, of Orion, resd
a paper on "Equality." She said that it
had been expected that the St, Louis con
vention would insert a plank in its plat
form in favor of equal suffrage, but the
hope was not fulfilled. Justice demands,
said Mrs. Wright, that women should
come to the front and take part in the
great struggle to strike the shackles from
the white slates of this country, both
male and female. ! Disfranchisement is
not only political deeredation, but it is
also social, moral and industrial depreda
tion. Aside from the higher ground of
inherent right, the homes of the nation
are not safe without this reserved force
of moral and spiritual power. In advo
cating for women this larger sphere the
speaker did not under value her relations
as wife and mother, than which none can
be more worthy. It is only by a full de
velopment of her faculties that she be
comes the true companion of an intelli
gent husband. There is not an Interest
In this country that is not as vital to
woman as to man, she said.
Mrs. Mary C. Cramer, of Lexington,
Ky., opened the discussion on organiza
tion. It was thoueht that organization
even in a small way, and even though it
seemed at first to be without results,
would be prolific in the end of great good

There are many ways of coloring Easter
eggs, the easiest being the boiling of them
with the various colored dyes that are
sold in small packages at the drug store.
An old-fashioned method was to tie each
egg in a piece of figured chintz or calico,
which would leave its print on the egg
after it had been exposed to the action of
bailing water. Another good way to
produce a variegated reddish-purple color
was to boil with the eggs the skin of red
To color the eggs with original designs
an oldstime method wa? to trace figures
upon the shells of raw eggs with a bit of
hard tallow caudle, thus covering the
part of the Bhell which was to remain
white, and then to put the eggs in boil
ing ije water. Again sometimes the
eggs are entirely dyed, and then designs
are engraved upon them with a sharp
knife or a strong truessing. or & darning
needle. When the prepared dye-stuffs
are not available, varied colors may be
produced by using the following named
chemicals, bailing a small quantity with
the eggs. Red, Brazilwood; yellow.
Persian berries, or a very little tumeric;
brown, a strong dye of tumeric; claret
color, logwood, black, logwood atd chro-
mate of potash; blue, a mixture of pow
dered indigo, crystals of sulphate of iron
and a little dry slacked lime. The eggs
should always be boiled for 10 minutes

A Go's . works in Moline yesterday morn

lev:r which was lying across the wooden
base, when he accidently shoved it for-,
ward. The rapidly reyolving . stone
caught the other end, jerking the handle
ut of his hands, and striking him with
terrible force on his under jaw. The
force of the blow lifted him off his feet
and threw bim across to the other side of
the grindstone. He was picked up
unconscious and carried into the office,
and Dr. Dunn telephonad for. When
the doctor arrived he ordered the man ta
ken to his home in 8tewartville, which
was accordingly done. It was found that
no bones were broken, though his under
jaw was gashed to the bone. , about 1
inches long, and his tongue, which had
doubtless been caught between his teeth,
was cut fully half off. Dr. Dunn sewed
the tongue together and stitched up the
cut in the jaw. Some hemorrhage oc
curred from the ears, but sa far as could
be ascertained the brain was uninjured,
