Thousands of housewives re
joiced. Monday, when they learned

of bread had gone down one cent a

A general decrease of one cent a
loaf was announced by the bakeriea,
the large loaf being reduced from
nine to eight cents, the small loaf
from five to four centa. Aa the
grocer takes one cent per loaf for
his charge for handling and profit,
the retail price Is lowared to nine
centa for the large loaf, Instead of
10, and five cents for the small loaf,
Instead of six

which is $1.50 and $1 a barrel be
low the high level of last February,

Suffragists Can’t See
Congressman Nichols’
Position
ASK SUPPORT
FOR AMENDMENT
Tell Him States, Not
Congress, Should
Decide Question
After about nix weeks of think
In*. Congressman Charles A. Nich
ols sprang his unansweiable argu
ment on a delegation of suffragist*,
who railed on him, Saturday after
noon, to tell him why he ought to
support the Susan ft. Anthony
amendment, which proposes to elim
tnate sex as a qualification for
voting.
And 10. the congressman’s un
answerable argument was answered
Mrn. Helen Hill Weed, daughter of
Congressman E. J Hill, of Connecti
cut, caught It hot off the hat and
tagged Mr. Nichols before he had
started to run. The
had such hard work making him
self believe that he wns put out
that he repeated the play two or
three times, with the same lick of
success. Finally he surrendered,
physically If not mentally, and was
dragged a raptive to Fort st.. where
before the Dime Dink building he
was phofogrnphed In the midst of
the smiling suffragists.
When the suffragists called on
Congressman Doremus. s few
months ago, Mr. Dorenius got be
hind a table and stood the assault
very well. Mr. Nichols* office has
no table. The congressman was
obliged to stand In front of his
desk, within a foot or Iwo of the
women who talked to him. It Is no
cinch to be all alone for half an
hour with a score of women, one
of whom Is talking to you while the
rest nod their heads In deep con
