first to the cafe. She i'ldered beef
steak, which seemed to him an oblig
ingly modest order until he looked at
the bill of fare and saw that the price
for beefsteak dinner was $s. When
the steak was brought, she ate a few
nibbles and left about half a pound of
it, while the Kansas mar pondered on
the price, and linally decided that a
mistake had been made by the printer
and that it should read ! cents. How
ever, when he went to pa v. the cashier
set him right, assuring him that nine
dollars was the price of that steak.
"Sir," said our astonished townsman,
"in the country where I came from,
if a man happens to have that much
money, he doesn't buy a steak he
buys a cow."
Nothing is more serviceable for the
summer season than the little coat
suits of pongee. The one shown in
the sketch was developed in old blue
pongee and a smart and distinguish
ing touch was contributed by the addi
tion of striped blue and ecru silk as
trimming. This was used on the
corners of the broad revers, as a fin
ish for the short sleeve, and was inset
near the bottom of the jaunty coat.
It was also introduced on the skirt.
Buttons covered with the pongee

Mrs. Fannie Cooper Atkinson, of
Parsons, Kansas, the president of the
State Federation, has written the fol
lowing letter to Mrs. A. A. Godard,
of Topeka: "I am submitting for your
consideration, and hope for your ap
proval of a list of members for our Art
Committee. The immediate work of
the committee is that of enlisting the
country school teachers in a plan to
place at least one good copy of one
great picture on the walls of every
country school in Kansas. To this end
the chairman of the Art Committee,
Mrs. Murdock, will write at once to
every county superintendent, asking
co-operation and the privilege of the
matter being presented at each county
normal institute. I am asking the co
operation of the district presidents to
the extent of appointing a capable
club woman, or some capable repre
sentative in each county to present this
matter to the teachers.
"The question of ways and means
must be left to the teacher to work out
in the district, with the co-operation of
pupils and parents. A literary enter
tainment, a spelling match, a lecture,
a "pie social," or any other plan that
will bring the teacher, pupils, and par
ents together, will, by having a small
admission fee, serve the triple end of
promoting social intercourse, intellec
tual stimulus, and provide a fund, even
though a small one, for the purchase
of a copy of a great picture. The Art
Committee will advise with the teach
ers concerning the picture to be chosen
and it is hoped this work may be ac
complished before the Christmas vaca
tion. "It must be unnecessary to present
(argument on the value and need of
mis worK. ine Darren wans oi oui
school houses in both town and coun
try, and the resultant hunger for some
thing of beauty to feed the souls of
these precious children of Kansas, is
surely sufficient reason for this effort.
Anyone who visits them must be im
pressed that there is nothing so
wholly dreary and uninsi iring as the
interior of these country school houses,
and if it be true that 'to get a thing
into our national life, we must get it
into the schools.' then is this the place
to begin teaching a love for the artistic
and beautiful. We hope the Civic and
Educational Committees will be able
to co-operate with the Art Committee
in such manner that not only the in
terior of the school buildings where
the children spend so great a part of
their formative years, be made more
; attractive, but that the exterior and
grounds may receive attention and also
jthat the school houses may be utilized
'as centers for the social, intellectual
land religious life of the communities.
"Referring to the Chautauqua assem
'blies in Kansas, it would seem the
, Federation should not only make its
j contribution by way o interest and
participation toward the success of
.these meetings, but avaii i'self of the
! opportunity for present&tio . and dis
cussion of work along the lines of the
various departments. To this end,
may I ask that each distric. president
take the matter up with the Chautau
iqua assemblies in her distric ., and with
the assistance of any members of the
executive board who may reside in her
district, arrange with the local club
women to conduct a club hour, at
which time some talks and discussions
in line with the committee and depart
ment work of our federation be pre
sented, and if possible maintain a rest
tent or club headquarters. The mat
ter of club extension is tc be placed in
the hands of district presidents, and
some valuable work along this line
I might also be accomplished. Will you
consider these suggestions and give
i them immediate attention?"
Professor Alberta Corbin, of the
German department of the State Uni

Mrs. Matie Toothaker Kimballi
president of the Fifth District, has
completed the organization of Riley
County for suffrage work and has be
gun work in some of the other counties
of her district. Mrs. W. T. Willard,
wbose husband is a professor in the
Agricultural College, has been chosen
president for Riley; Mrs. Emil Pfuetze,
of the Agricultural College, a graduate
of Washburn and a former student of
the University at Berlin, will be first
vice-president; Miss Wetzig, county
superintendent of Riley, and a woman
of wide political acquaintance in that
section, is secretary; Mrs. B. S. John
son, wife of Representative Johnson,
jwill be treasurer. Mrs. E. B. Purcell
lis advisory member of the committee.
I A meeting of the executive board of
ithe Suffrage Association w'll be held
some time this month to open the eam
Jpaign. I Some changes will be made in the
i membership of the board, on account
of the resignation of two district presi
' dents, whose positions have not yet
'been filled. Mrs. Albright, of Win-
field, who was chosen president of the
third district, will be unable to accept
the office on account of ill-health. She
has suffered a nervous breakdown, and
dares not attempt the work her elec
tion placed upon her. Mrs. N. Y. Mor
gan, who was selected as president of
the seventh district will ni.t be able to
take the office, as she will spend the
entire summer in Europe. Upon her
return in the autumn, she will join
with the workers of her district and
work for suffrage.
The National Suffrage Convention
will be held in Louisville, Kentucky,
next October, and it is hoped that Cali
fornia, which votes on her amendment
the tenth day of that month, will be
i able to report a successful issue of the
campaign in that state.
The women of Riley county are
planning to give a suffrage tea some
time soon. It seems to be a case of
history repeating itself. When the
men of the Colonies were seeking inde
pendence, they gave a great tea party
in Boston Harbor. Their Twentieth
century daughters who are asking for
freedom, have thought that a "tea"
might help their cause, too.
A song entitled "Another Star,"
written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman,
is being sung in the campaign for
votes for women in California. Its
words are:
There are five a-light before us
In the flag flying o'er us
There'll be six on next election
We bring a new star!
We are coming like the others, free
sisters, free brothe-s.
In the pride of our affection
For California.
The ballot for the Lady
For the Home and for the Baby.
Come vote ye for the lady
The baby, the home.
Star of Hope and Star of Beauty,
Of Freedom, of Duty.
Star of Childhood's new nrotection
That rises so high.
We will work for it together in the
golden, gay weather
And we'll have it next election
Or we will know why.
"We pride ourselves, in weighing
worth and merit,
Too much in virtues that we but in
herit. Some punctual grandsire makes us
hate delay
And we are proud to keep our oath
and day.
But our ancestral follies and abuses
We still indulge in and make for them
Let him be proud, dared men be proud
at ail.
Who stands where all his fathers used
to fall.
Holding their virtues fast and passing
Still higher good through his own vic
tories won."

"Yes, I suppose I shouldn't have said
that, but you know I am naturally
quick tempered. I inherit it from my
father, I think. You knew he had an
uncontrollable tongue."
So I heard a woman say the other
day. She said it very complacently
and apparently felt entirely content
and justified in her excuse.
Isn't that a queer and yet a common
state of mind? to think that because
one is born with a predisposition to
some particular fault one's yielding
to it thereby becomes entirely excus
able? "I can't help being obstinate. It's
a regular family trait. The Bartletts
never could give up anything they
really set their hearts on."
"Oh, well, you mustn't blame me for
being rather revengeful. We're all
that way. It's in the blood never to
forget a friend or forgive an enemy."
"I suppose I am rather quick, to
jump at conclusions, but that's my
natural disposition. You mustn't lay
it up against me."
How complacently and with what
serene self-justification people go
about saying things liko that.
If anything, it seems as If they
were proud rather than ashamed of
their inherited failings.
Now of course the fact that one is
naturally very weak in some direc
tion might explain one's yielding to
temptations of that sort a little often
er than other people. But it would
not explain one's yielding all the
time. And it wouldn't excuse one's
yielding at all.
Someone has said, "While we are
not responsible for the character
that we bring into the world, we are
responsible for that we take out."
Tt seems to me that sums up the
while situation in a sentence.
We aren't responsible for having a
tendency to be quick tempered or pig
headed or unforgiving, but we most
certainly are responsible if we do
nothing to conquer it. And doubly
responsible, too both ftr ourselves
and the generations that are to in
herit our unconquered weaknesses.
"We gain the strength of the temp
tation we resist," says Goethe.
Better still, we not only gain It, but
we pass it on to countless generations
and take away trom tnem the weaken
ing prop of being able to say, "I am
quick-tempered, I am pig-headed, I
am unforgiving because it's in the

After dinner Mr. Bowser lighted a
cigar and took a stroll in his garden.
That is, he called it his garden. He
had planted five hills of sunflowers,
and three burdocks were already
showing their green heads above the
soil, and so he had a right to call it a
The sun was sinking away to rest,
having been on the move all day. Now
and then some weary woman threw
a tomato can from a second or third
story window, and now and then a
boy pegged at a cat licking herseil
on the fence.
It was a peaceful scene fit ending
for a peaceful day.
There might have been more robins
and bluebirds and orioles and bobo
links and nightingales to sing the sun
to rest, but even Mr. Bowser realized
as he gazed around him that we can't
have all the good things of this world
at once. A feeling of balminess was
stealing over him, and he was about
to speak to the cat in tones of kindli
ness and courtesy, when
-HE PAW E-O rtO RirtCE.D
Well, the stroller in the garden sud
denly uttered a wild yell and jumped
two feet high. Mrs. Bowser, who was
standing in the back door, rushed out
to him, but he pawed and pranced ana
pushed past her Into the house.
Will you tell me what on earth s
the matter all of a sudden?" she
asked, as she followed him up to the
sitting room. He held a hand on the
back of hia neck and glared at her.
"Have you been stung?" was the
further question.
No answer.
"I saw bees about this afternoon,
and there was a mosquito buzzing
around last night. Let me see the
spot. If it's a sting or bite I'll put
some camphor on it."
"Woman, It's too late," said Mr.
Bowser in a hoarse voice.
"Too late for what? I'm sure It's
a trifle."
"Too late. It's what I've been ex
pecting for a week past. It's what
Dr. Slinger told me must Inevitably
happen. It's what I've been hiding
from you, so as to not worry you. I
will lie down on the lounge."
"Now, then," said Mrs. Bowser, as
she drew nearer and bristled up,
"what's all this talk about? Who ia
Dr. Slinger? What did he tell you?
What is it you've been concealing
from me? Speak right up!"
"Can cancer!" he gasped.
"Cancer nothing! , Did the tdiot tell
you you had cancer?"
"Y yes!"
"He said I had it in my blood, and
it would break out all of a sudden,
just as it has."
"Then he ought to be put where he
can't break out all of a sudden! Hold
still now, while I look. You have
simply been bitten by a fly or stung
by a mosquito."
"It's worse than that, woman far
worse," he answered with doleful
shakes of the head. "Mrs. Bowser,
I've got a feeling that my time has
"Well, I haven't, and you hold still
while I rub some camphor on. If I
had that old fraud of a Dr. Slinger
here I'd make him swallow a bottle!"
"But but why should he have told
me so?"
"How do I know or care why? It's
sufficient to know that he's a fraud.
There isn't the pain about all gone?"
She was answered with a long
drawn groan.
"The redness has almost disappear
ed." The same sort of a groan, but a
trifle more hopeless and dismal.
"You ought to know that a cancer
don't come like a bullet. It is months
or years coming. The doctor must
have taken you for an ass. You cer
tainly feel better now."
He struggled part way up to fall
back In despair, and then he reached
for her hand and whispered:
"Don't leave me to die alone!"
"Bosh! What's got into you? Are
you a man or a baby?"
"I'm a man, Mrs. Bowser, and a
dying one at that. It's kind of you to
make me think I've been bitten by a
fly. but I know I'm doomed. Please
bring out my will from the safe. I
want to see that everything's left to
"Well, there it is," she said, as she
brought him the document, "but you
needn't look it over on my account.
Get up and walk around and forget
it. Why, a boy 4 years old wouldn't
boobv around about a fly-bite!"
"Mrs. Bowser. I've been a hard
husband to get along with."
"On the contrary, you have been as
easy as grease.
"I have kicked and blufled and
blowed around."
"Yes, and you've always got as good
as you gave."
"I have charged you with selling the
coal and the gas."
"And I've gone through your pock
ets when you were asleep to get even!"
"Mrs. Bowser," he continued, as hie
lip trembled, "If I haven't always been
the best husband In the world, I want
you now in my dying hour to forgive
"But there is nothing to forgive.
Mother and I have managed to keep
you pretty straight."
"Yes, your rnother your dear old
mother! I've been mean to her. Tell
her that I begged her forgiveness."
"Oh. you don't owe her anything!"
"I should have liked to see her once
more, but It was not to be not to be.
The cancer suddenly broke out. and
"You mean a fly suddenly bit you.
The red has all gone, and I'll bet you
don't feel the least bit of pain.
Mr. Bowser didn't answer in words.
He wiped a tear from his eye with his
last will and testament, and then un
folded the document and read:

and body, but having the fear of death

swollen, tender feet need but a few ap
plications. Any druggist has Calocide in
stock or will get it from his wholesale
house. A twenty-five cent package Is
usually sufficient to cure the worst feet,
Calocide is not a patent medicine.
Formerly used only by doctors, but now
is obtainable by the public In general,

suitable provision for my wife-
Here Mr. Bowser broke down, and
after struggling with his emotions for
a couple of minutes he handed over
the will and was about to say some
thing when the doorbell rang and Mrs.
Bowser answered It. It was the fam
ily doctor.
I was paying a professional call
next door," he said, "and I thought
I'd drop in here for a minute. Both
well, I hope?"
Alas, no!" she answered as he fol
lowed her back to the sitting room.
I am sorry to say that Mr. Bowser, is
"Bowser dying."
"Of cancer," explained Mr. Bowser,
as he looked up.
Where is it? Oh, on the neck, eh?
Hump! When do you depart for the
shining shore?'
"He was walking in the garden and
a fly bit him or a mosquito stung
him," said Mrs. Bowser.
"And you've taken the poison out
with camphor? Right-o. Come Bow
ser, the game is played."
"You you think I'll live?"
"Why, man, the fall of 10 brick
houses couldn't do you up!"
Mr. Bowser was very quiet and
humble for the rest of the evening,
but the next morning he was ready
to say:
"It didn't turn out to be cancer, but
if it had you'd have seen me die like
a hero fighting to the last. That's
one of the differences between us."
And Mrs. Bowser didn't talk back!

Hazel Ball Testifies Against Her
Likes Stepfather "Very Much." -
Salma, Kan., June 17. That when
Mrs. Churchill left him, Charles O.
Churchill, a Salena expert joiner, began
paying attentions to his wife's 17-year-old
daughter, Miss Hazel Ball, is what
attorneys for Mrs. Delia Churchill claim
In the course of her suit for divorce
against Churchill.
"I stayed at Churchill's after my
mother had gone, with Mr. Churchill
and my step sister," the girl said.
"Was Churchill always nice to
you." she was asked.,
"Yes, he has been very nice and I
like him very much."
Judge Dallas Grover granted Mrs.
Churchill's petition for divorce.
"I feel that the mother is the natural
guardian of the girl until she becomes
of age," the Judge said.
"But here It seems that the girl has
overcome her natural liking for the
mother In preference to the stepfath
er." This case is the only one tried in the
Saline county court in which a daugh
ter testified against her own mother In
favor of her stepfather.
She gavo the testimony against her
mother. The mother, it seems, did not
like the fact that her second husband
paid attention to his stepdaughter, and
forbade the girl having anything to do
with her stepfather. The girl testified
as to her stepfather's attentions toward
her. which she said were only those
such as a father should accord his own
child, and she was humiliated by her
mother's suspicions of her. The mother
asks that the stepfather be restrained
from having anything to do with Hazel.
