f THH WASHINGTON CRITIC, SATURDAY EVENING, MAY 28, 1887. DOUBLE SHEET. S' VWOPN AT THE POLLS. A Correspondent's Experience Oat In Well ington. Territory. THE MICA PRECINCT ELECTION. A fiort of Family Affair and General Uosslpplnc Xlae A correspondent of the Courier-Journal in far-oil Washington territory, recently attended an election at which the women Toted. It wis. his first experience of tho kind, and he narratoa It at length. The diction was held In Jllca precinct, and the principal Issue in vol red was a county seat question. It was several hours attcr the pollwero opened before tho women voters mido their appearance, but they cime In force at last, led off by a family party, a man, wife, and throe email children. And now, says tho correspondent, from every direction, as If by preconcerted arrange ment, wagons drovo up containing similar bouseholds, for these people had no ser vants with whom to leave their children. Not only wero all tha little ones brought along, but enormons Jugs of milk and baskets o,f lunch. The bachelors scattered timidly and the ladles swarmed In upon us, moved the benches around the Arc. block aded the doorway, and took entire posses eion pf the premises. They wero farmers' wives, buxom, sensible, and energetic A more domestic scene one etldom sees. Here a mother nursing her baby, there- a fpnd father trolling bis Infant daughter, yonder a kqpt pf women exchanging recipes for mixed pickles, and, agatn, an eager group setting out lunch and passing pie ami allced pork to their friends. By noon the building, was fairly packed, and tbe picnic appearance Increased 'with every arrival. 'Biscuits, sandwiches, cake, sauce, boiled egg, canteens of cold tea, were laid out on every side, and. the babel was confounding. 'If you. Iron ginghams and calicoes on the wrong side they look1 fills very best cow. The enow was deep, and all the poor thing got to eat was moss" "Tbey say her victuals taste of pine gum lialf the Hue. Drips from the pitch rafters' ' tI pulled the , poor child's tooth myself, "Who, shall you vote for, Sue ?' iUef I don't know. Jack ain't here yet." -. "Mamma, give me some pie, too t" "Oh, EHzk it the poll after all V "Yea.' 'Didn't' want tocomenUt Hill lfl Republican and I told him I'd voto Dam- ocratic sure if ,he made me come. But he Mid no matter, so long as wo both vote tor Spokane Falls," "The eround squirrels just ate us up alive. Aid wo haul water two miles to cook with. I never was so discouraged" "Pooh t I guess we're every bit as sharp as the men folks." "Don't vote for Splcer. They say he treats his wife perfectly awfnl t' "Cucumbers taste bitter that come from that cold hill, Grow so slow, you know." MEASLES 1 During a momentary lull there appeared In tho doorway a portly and venerablo rancher. "Uow d'do, John MdUrllle. Brought your wife t" "No." t'Well, she's a heap more sensible than the rest of us." "Too bad, Mr, MellvMo. She promised me to come and vote the Prohibition ticket." "Little Mllly la sick. Wife had to stay home," said portly John "SlckT Whatallshert" ('We looked la the doctor books yester day and made up our minds It was measles." "Measles l "Mercy I" A panic waa precipitated. tUtmeoutofheeI" "Sarah Jane I You tome away from that door." "Heulcit Don't step Inside." "Co 'way, John. Go 'way I" "I'm golna; right home," cried ono. "So am I," echoed another. And a bustle of preparation for Immediate retreat arose "Put In your votes before you leavo, ladles," said the Inspector, anxiously. "Indeed 1 won't. I never thought of this. It's tho last ttmo I'll ever come to tho polls." And their apprehensions wero not sllllod until we urged infectious John Mellvllle to retire from tho scene. This John did, pro testing, however, that his child was better than vestrrday, and didn't have measles at all. But bis explanation ca-ne too late, and be was forced to stay far away beneath the trees. TltEY OTE( But at last, after lunch was eaten and put away, and tho babies bad hid their usps, and tho ladles hal exhausted all tho gossip, a general movement was made to ward departure. It was a long ways home, and tho cows to milk, and tho water to draw, and the supper to get, and the break fast dishes to wash at the heels of all I After such a festival one might suppose tie ladles would vote cheerfully, but this was not tho caso. It had been postponed as lone as possible, and now that It must actually bo done they went at It spitefully, Here was a husband handing rival tick ets to his wlfo and saving for the public car t "You can vote whichever you like," at the samo time grlpplns his own ballot with a reaolute air and a Jaw of such out line as made one hope his spouse would vote as he did In the interests of domestic peace. There a dame was imperatively thrusting oa hor husband tho prohibition ticket. These prohibition ladles advanced firmly ti the polls and gave In their ballots with an air of satisfaction. Beyond these few who had a definite personal purpose, the voting was perfunctory and dooo with manifest dislike. The ladles each handed bcr ballot to the Inspector hesitatingly, watched curiously as ho put It In the box, and turned away with a toss of the head. "There 1 It's tho first time-1 ever voted, aid It'll be tho Jastl" "I hope Spokane Falls gets the county seat so we can stay at home next time.1! "You men musthegrowlngweak minded when you drag an old lady llko mo out to vote. I'm seventy years old. Old enough to know better 1" And with contemptuous air the dames retired to tlielrawagona. Alas I The per versity of human nature-1 While many of their sisters in the out sigh for suffrage, these bo havo It hold It in disdain. Abe; hek age. Now came young Tvndall and his wife on horseback, and tbcro was quite a stir among the ladles who still lingered In the wagons aniUbo "baches" around tho trees. Tyndall had purchased too oldest a ad lorgett ranc&o In the precinct, and had brought a bride from San Francisco several months before, Few had seen her, for she was very retired and aristocratic. A young woman, with peachy, girlish face, a wealth of blonde hair, and round, blight b'uoojes, attired In an elegant rUi log habit of dark green velvet, with a lojg plume on her dainty cap. ('She looks very young," said the In spector us the couple drew near. "Do you think ebe's old enough to vote!" "No, I don't," replied ore of tho Julgcs. "Then the- ought not to bo allowed. " "You'll have to ask her age," said an other of the judges. The burly Inspector looked concerned and nervous. More nervous yet as the bride came In, glanced about, and blushed to fhd herself tho only woman present. 1 vudall, whose dress aud bearing showed early culture, nodded to tho ofliciale, took bis wife's arm, aud escorted her forward, HoDhkedout his lit Lett from the table, folded oae and handed It to her; folded tho otht r ana held it betweeu his fingers. Mrs. Tyndall presented herself before tho ballot box and rabid her ticket, uncertain what come next. Her Innocent blue eyes rested on tbo lusocctor with a pretty look of won tier and Inquiry. Perspiration moistened the Inspector's trow, His weather beaten face turned a UaiKcr red. "Your name t" be asked la a low, husky rolce. Mrr. T)ndall looked at her husband, hut bo did not reply to her, He smiled ami awolted her answ er. Whereupon eho said, becoming crave, "Stella Tyndall." Tbe inspector mechanically echoed, ''Stella Tjudallj'and the clerk wrotolt down, lie looked Into the fair young face, and gasped. This was no plain farm wife, this was a high bred city lady, UeQne ment spoke In every line of her face, In every graceful curve of her form and cos tume. Could ho ask her ago or challenge her right to appear: Tho Inspector faltered. It bad boon easy to bar the braggart miner who first appeared to offer to vote there, but this The Inspector dropped her ballot Into the box. No doubt a barb rankles In hi con science to this day, Mrs. Tyndall stood looking on an Instant without moving. ( "Is that alt t" she cried at last, aston ished. "That's all. You've voted, Stetla," said her husband, offering his vote In turn, and the bride laughed morrily. She took her husband's arm and peeped all about her with great amusement, and went oil In high spirits. It had been a very funny episode for her. "I couldn't do It," said tho Inspector, drawing a long breath as his laughing asso elates rallied him. "She's so high-toned. This having woman folks vote Iduono " and he shook his head ruefully. UEVELATlOX$ Ol? SCIENCE. The Iteul Cause of Life and Uow It Is Sustained Explained-High Authori ties A wcll-knowu collego Professor was en tertaining a company of friends the other evening, and, during his remarks, said: "You all know tho surface of fishes Is coated with a substance which Is called mucous, end that It Is somewhat similar In form, though (Hire rent In finality, to tho mucous lining of tho human system, Tho entire Interior of tho body Is covered with a mucous membrane, l Is sensitive, and forms tho basis or lire. It absorbs life RltfWE properties from food, from drink and from the air, and It Is the only way by which life can bo sustained. When It be comes inflamed or Irritated It causes colds, dyspepsia, pneumonia, dysentery and prion death. Nine tenths of all known diseases have their origin In the mucous membrane. The poison In tho air and in food Is simply thousands or germs which attack this mucous surface. These germs must be killed, and I know or nothing that will so certainly do thU as a pure spirit stimulant. Prof. Austin Flint or Bellcvuo College says: 'The judicious use or alcoholic stimulants Is one or tho striking characteristics or progress in tho practice of mcdlcluo during the lint half century,' and hta views are confirmed by Profs. Carpenter, Parilsb. Gardner and others." ' It being truo that pure spirits furnish tho best means for expelling germs and warding off disease and death, It follows that only pure spirits can bo valuable Instead or warding off disease, Impure spirits cause It; but when so prominent a scientist as Pror. Henry Mott, Vh. D. F. 0 S., rave: "By a most careful anal sis 1 have found Dollys Pure Malt Whiskey free from Adulterations or foreign substancos, and It deserves to meet with great snecess," It means that Duffy's Pure Malt Whlskoy Is absolutely tho purest In tho market. This Is proven not only by analysis, bat by tho wonderful effects It Is having upon the community, Tho well-known Dr. H. W, Hutchinson or New York says: "I highly recommend Duffy's pure Malt Whiskey, and prescribe it extensively In my prac tice." Kev. B. Milts ol Princeton, Iowa, says: "I bavo used Duffy's Puro Half blskcy and Formula w ith great benefit to my wife, who Is a confirmed Invalid. I know from experience It Is a pure and most valuablo medicine. I am also using It in tho case or my son, who is threatened with consumption. I am a Presbyterian clergy man and a doetor or divinity, but I am not afraid to recommend Duffy's Malt Whiskey as tbe purest and most owclent tonic that I know of," Duffy's Malt Whiskey Is tho only worthy preparation In the market, and has stood the test of time, although surrounded by numerous unworthy Imitations. Beware of any other bottled whiskey which may bo offered to yon. Duffy's Formula Is a positive curs for coughs, colds and all pul monary troubles. lSlVltOVEMENTS AT IT WT, What Will be Done During the Coming; Bummer A Critic reporter asked Mr. P. II, Cbrlstmon, treasuierof tho Jockey Club, this morning what tho club would do In tho way of making Improvements at Ivy City this summer. "Well," ho said, "we made a little ocr f 0,000 at tho spring meeting, which, after paying tho interest ou tho bonds, will bo used In putting tho place In repair. Tho first thing to bo dono la to put a new roof on the grand stand. Tho old ono Is lit a ery bad condition, and we consider our eelusAery fortunate that q had such pleasant weather during the spring meet ing, lor if tbcro had been rain I urn afraid some of the ladies In the grand stand would havo Messed us for spoiling their new spring suits. That dono, wo will enlargo the butting quarters. Mr, Cridgo, who has had the betting privileges ever sluco wo began, asked us to do this because tho place was crowded with tho lew book makers who coino now, and It was lils In tention to haio almost twlco as many if there was accommodations lor them. "And last, but not least, I know thlsls the ono horsemen are Interested In." "New stables?'1 "Ob. no; not now ones. I wish there were, but they will come In time. No; wo intend to put new roofs ou et ery stable." "What kind r" "Well, that I don't know. Mr. F, M. Draney, Mr, Joseph Rock and nisclf hao been appointed a committee to decido oa that, and w o will try to put good ones up, so that horses wintering bore will be com fortable That, I believe, Is all wo Intend to do for this season." "What will ultimately be douc w-JU tho brick buildings at the track r" "Now that Is rather a hard ono. I am sure. But when tho Fair Association is mi reed Into tho Jockey Club, I think the; ; they . and. win uoxurnea into nrsi-ciass siauics, by tho way, that Is what I hopo to sco at no ery distant day. Wheu tho Jockey Club cum the grounds jou may look for Improvements that will put us at lcist on on equal standing with any club In tho conulry. "Do I think that wilt cvor happen? Yes I do. 1 think a proposition will certainly come from the Jockey Club boiiio day In the near futuro that will bring It about " "Now, ir you will answer lust ono mare question I'll let you alone. What do you thinker this plan to hmo a meeting for crois country horses ?" "I think If Is an excellent Idea ono that should be carried out by all means. Our people loo that kind or sport, and, with our spltndld steeplechase course, I am sure It would bo a grand success aud reflect nothing but glory and a crown or the dollars or our da dales upon its promoters." Absolutely Pure. This powder novcr varies. A marvel of purity, tdrengtb and wliolrnoTouneai.
