edly to a mixed audience on the
streets of a city. She had mount
ed a dry goods box and the fem
inine orator spoke something
like this: "I pant for the time
to come when woman will have
her rights. I pant for the time
when woman will cast her ballot
in every nook and corner of this
great commonwealth from the
Atlantic to the Pacific. I pant
for the time when woman will
not 'only be recognized as the
equal of man, but his superior."
At fAwls point a plain old gentle
manv in the crowd called out:
"4R4old on, sister; you needn't
pant for all that. What you are
panting for is pants!"
