though no one would like better than
I to "dab" in politics, and so ardently
support, (with my tongue) imly party,
even if on the losing side, I'm not yet
convinced that South Carolina is ready
for woman suffrage. True none in our
state are debarred from the ballot but
the idiot, the lunatic And the criminal
aind the negro, and most assuredly our
women come under neither head. My
opinion however, is that South Caro
lina as a whole is not prepared for
woman suffrage. I may be old fash
ioned, and I confess I am old fashioned
enlough never to want a klivorce law
introduced in our grand old state.
Now don't think I believe in all that
"Losh," (because I am an anti) of the
holme and hearthstone being women's
sphere and her inability to cope with
so weighty a problem as poiitics, for
wVOllanl is certainly man's equal and
,an talk politics too, and some of them
make shrewd electioneers for their
favorite, 'which is as it should be.
Granted that the ballot was ours.
would we make good? Take the statute
books of Colorado, Utah, Idaho, and
\Wyomtlinig, where women have voted re
spectively from fifteen to forty years,
and it is astonishing how few laws
have been put upon those books for
the P rotet ion of h uman life. It is
ill to s:y in rebuttal of this fact that

est to see that the ballot for woman
should be made universal. It is true
that woman suffrage has caused a fewt
good laws, but it is a bewildering fact,
iudged on any ground, but in 'these
facts lies the reason why, in the minds
of many men and women-woman suf
rage has been weighed in the balance
and found wanting.
We would be glad to show you how

Trout Streams in Rockies.
Nearly all of the Recky mountain for
ests contain splendid tr'ut streams,
and, as most of these are kept well
stocked, they will doubtless furnish
sport for many generations. Game Is
also to be found in most of the forests,
and in some of them is abundant; but
the big game is rapidly disappearing,
and may of the species are doomed.
Thus the Olympic forest is the last
Stand of the Roosevelt elk, and the
mountain sheep is found only in a few
forests. On the other hand. (leer and
bear are still abundant in many of
the forests, and especially in the
lilackfcet, Kootenai, Kanisku, Coeur
d'Alene and Flathead of Montana. In
the Southwest there is still good hunt
