'Alto gether the little country has 17,000 ad vocates for giving women the ballot. Recently the women of Zurich canton petitioned the state for the right to act as Jurors on a case in which a wo man was the defendant. Their re quest was refused. Later, with char acteristic Swiss bravery, they sent in another petition to the legislature ask ing the right to sit in Judgment on special courts, such as are held In France for adjusting differences be tween mistress and maid, and other cases where differences arise between a woman employer and a woman em ployee. While this, too, was denied. Parliament admitted the sex's eligibil ity to such an office. "We are not talking much about it," said the vice president of the Zurich Woman's Suffrage society, Fraulein Honneger, "lest publicity frighten the state into retarding the concession. It is not much of a gain, but," she added with true suffrage optimism, "It is a step forward. If we had made that de mand ten years ago, when to speak of our having the ballot was to be laugh ed at as a dreamer, our petition would A MARVELOUS RECOVERY.

But what will they do for umpires? They have all bee told to go to the other olace. A rich California lawyer has hired " a J2.000 private car to transport his Tet dog across the continent. And probably the dog, gazing from his luxurious quarters, envies the freedom and privileges of the street cur he sees exercising his muscles In a free-for-all fight or luxuriously lunching on a ragged bone picked out of casual garbage can. For dogs are much like humans in the way of non- appreciation of luxuries forced upon them or procured without a struggle. The census returns now coming In steadily leave no doubt that the coun try Is growing In population at a rapid rate. The gains in some of the cities are vry notable, several of the little places having made remarkable advancement in the last ten years. This growth Is really more significant in various ways than the increases in the larger cities, for it shows local thrift and prosperity. Study of the latest census returns must help to dissipate any pessimistic ideas as to the condition of the country. An English lad was sentenced to Jail for picking a flower from a railroad right of way, that he might decorate his father's grave. 'And comparing conditions In America and England Rhode Island Is "little, but Oh. my!" i6he is the first to come to' the front -with a complete census showing this :year, and she reports the very sub stantial gain of 26.6 per cent.

But a city that was the first in Europe to open its university to women will not finally deny us our citizens' rights." Switzerland has no women's clubs. But while , the suffragists are engaged along one line, anoth er body of women is working for philanthropy. A group of young women representing the fore most Zurich families has organized this year a practical training school where members study the needs of poor children and thereby help to better their unfortunate lot. "We are endeavoring to interest our young girls of leisure and education in this work," said one of the promoters, Fraulein Fertz, herself a beautiful, earnest, and cultured young woman. The medical inspector of schools Is assisted by this guild. Chil dren of the poor receive two full meals gratis in Swiss schools, and If the mothers of these chil dren be employed at outside work until a late hour the guild takes charge of the little ones. Through the Influence of this guild a law was passed last year by which a guardian Is appointed for illegitimate children and this guardian cau compel the father of a deserted child to contrib ute to its support. If the mother be under age also she, too, becomes a ward of this guardian. A similar organization to the Zurich guild exists in German cities, and, by a similar state law, the ab sconder of moral obligations is traced easily and extradited. To women is due the large number of temperance restaurants existing in Switzerland. Frau Professor Orellie of Zurich is the origina tor of this movement. Socialism is spreading in Switzerland; though how a country governed by the referendum sys tem can be possibly more democratic passeth un derstanding. Made up of three races, German, French and Italian, socialists of these kindred nations have entered Switzerland and scattered broadcast seeds of discontent In the brave, beauti ful little republic. Zurich has led in every movement of Its history. It was the storm center of the Protestant Refor mation period in Switzerland. Zwlngll's home Is here. In the Grossmuenster, whose tail towers have dominated the town for eight centuries, he preached the Protestant crusade and was the church's last Catholic pastor and Its first Protes tant one. High up in one of the towers Is a quaint, seated figure of Charlemagne, the legendary founder of Grossmuenster chapter. Back of the cathedral are the cloisters which now form part of a girls' seminary. In an old chapel across the road Is an Interest ing collection of articles relating to the Reforma tion, Including letters written by Calvin, Luther and Zwingll, each remarkably distinct. There is also one by Lady Jane Grey; her penmanship is legible as print and she wrote the letter in Latin. Back of this little chapel, called the Water church. Is a splendid bronze statue of Zwingll. Zurich Is the capital of the canton of Zurich and Is situated at the north end of Lake Zurich. It is the largest city In Switzerland. The old, tradi tional town, with its narrow, steep streets and Its high, dark houses, lies on both banks of the Llm mat. The rest of the city has spacious thorough fares and splendid buildings. The lake quays in tho Kllene Stadt are very attractive. Near their northern end Is the fine Tonhalle, a popular mod ern concert building and pleasure palace. In the vicinity of their southern end Is the beautiful Belvolr park. Near the Tonhalle, the stately main street of the city the Bahnhofstrasse leads from the lake north to the railway station. The bridges are striking. Adjacent to the fine Munster bridge Is the Wasserkirche, on the right bank, containing the city library with 130,000 vol umes and over 6,000 manuscripts. It preserves more valuable objects. Including the Codex Vati canus. The Grossmuenster is Romanesque with Orecian features. Further north is the Ruden, in the German Renaissance, dates from 1694. The university and the famous federal polytecfralc with their numerous institutions, laboratories and clinics are in the northern part of Grosse Stadt. Switzerland is the most mountainous country of Europe, three-fourths of its area being covered with mountains. The grandeur of the scenery has been pictured and described innumerable times. With the exception of certain portions of Amer ica, there Is nothing in the world to equal it in beauty. ' The central and southern parts are oc cupied by the Swiss Alps, which spread over nearly three-fifths of the entire area. The Jura Mountains cover the northwestern portions of the country. Far up in the mountains is the beautiful little town of Einsiedeln. I was fortunate enough to be present during a week-end musical fete, in which singing societies from the country and from neigh boring Bavarian towns were present in numbers exceeding 2,000. Switzerland, having only the summer time for holidaying, has organized a movable saengerfest by which each town and city gets its share of gay song and jolly visitors. All the cantons were represented at Einsiedeln and every house was decorated with Swiss colors, scarlet and white. Early in the afternoon the open air concert be gan. It was held in the vast, sloping square In front of the Benedictine abbey. The assembling of the singers was picturesque. Each canton carried a banner, individual societies carried great horns filled with flowers and the women singers wore white gowns and crimson sashes. As the quiet, well-behaved little place has but one policeman, the fire brigade turned out to give a semblance of civic authority, also to serve as a guard of honor. And while the marchers were massing around the conductor's box a cannon was kept firing a vigorous welcome. The bright Swiss decorations on the quaint, gabled houses, 4 the gay Sunday dress of the women, the encir cling mountains the nearby ones dark green, the distant peaks snow-tipped, edelweissniecked made a splendid, old world pictures. And the definite note was the ancient abbey of Einsiedeln, which called the town Into being, and which is one of the celebrated shrines of Europe. The abbey church, known as Notre Dame des Ermltes, Is a grand basilica, the edifice flanked on either side with monastery buildings. Since the year 934 the abbey of Einsiedeln has Housekeeping in Hankow Among our many wanderings our housekeep ing in Hankow was an experience I never had before nor after, writes Florence Gilbert in the New Idea Woman's Magazine.

Abbe Colomban I. It is the only Cath olic church in the world not dedicated by human hands; the legend is that Christ himself perform ed the act. Einsiedeln and vicinity were known as the Som bre Forest away back in the eighth century, when a holy hermit, Meinrad, the son of Prince Berthold of Hohenzollern, built for himself a cell in which he lived many years. He was murdered by bri gands to whom he had offered hospitality and who had hoped to find concealed treasures; all they got was a chalice and some books. Ravens, whose evil characteristics had been disarmed b the gentle hermit and had become his compan ions, pursued the assassins to Zurich, screaming and picking at the villains' heads. The strange actions of the irate birds attracted the townspeo ple's attention and they questioned the murderers, who, terrified, acknowledged their crime. In tho Einsiedeln Abbey coat-of-arms aie two ravens. When the noble edifice was erected over the hermit's cell the walls of the cell were enclosed in black marble and made into a chapel. It stands in the nave of the church and, while plain In style, the richness of the material and the simplicity of design make it impressive. On the altar stands the renowned statute of the Black Madonna, bronze and many hundreds of years old. The chapel is known as the Holy Chapel, because of the remarkable legend regarding its dedication. This Is the story. On September 14, 948, Saint Conrad, bishop of Constanco, came at the invita tion of Abbot Eberhard to consecrate the new church. He was attended by the Emperor Othon, the Empress Adelaide and a large retinue of clergy and courtiers. As they knelt preparatory to be ginning the ceremony suddenly the chapel became illuminated with a celestial brilliancy and before the altar stood the Savior performing the office of dedication, assisted by the four evangelists. At the right and left of the divine celebrant angels swung censers which emitted a thousand sweet perfumes, the apostle. Saint Peter, and th6 Pope, Saint Gregory the Great, held the vestments of the heavenly pointiff, and Saint Stephen and Saint Lawrence, who were the first deacons cf the church to be martyred, acted as deacon and sub-deacon. An angelic choir, conducted by th6 archangel Saint Michael, sang glorious music and before the altar knelt the beautiful virgin mother of the Son of God. A still earlier legend has it that when Conrad began the office of dedi cation he was stopped by a voice that cried out three times distinctly: "Cease! brother, this chapel has been consecrated by God himself."

I suffered for several months, and most of my hair came out. Finally they had a doctor to see me and he recommended the Cuticura Remedies. They cured me in a few weeks. I have used the Cuticura Remedies, also, for a breaking out on my hands and was benefited a great deal. I haven't had any more trouble with the scalp disease. Miss Jessie F. Buchanan, R. F.
