DBS MOINES, Iowa, March 11.—
That suffrage should win and is going
to win in Iowa is the opinion of scores
of the leading men of the state. The
offers of support coming from every
corner of the state are most encourag
ing, because they demonstrate beyond
a doubt the truth of the claims made
by the suffragists that a large major
ity of the prominent men in every
walk of life in the state are support
ers of suffrage. Here are a few of the
offers of co-operation received by the
Iowa Men's League for Women Suf
frage in the last ten days, so that the
voters may judge for themselves:

Required for Health and Beauty.
It is surprising that it is necessary
to repeat again and again that the
health and beauty of the skin require
that the blood shall be pure. If the
arteries of the skin receive impure
blood, pimples and blotches appear,
and the individual suffers from hum
ors. Powders and other external ap
plication are sometimes used for
these affections, but will never have
the desired effect while the causes
of impure blood remain.
The indications are very clear that
Hood's Sarsaparilla is the most suc
cessful medicine for purifying the
blood, removing pimples and blotches,
and giving health and beauty to the
skin. It gives tone to all the organs
and builds up the whole system. In

THE DAILY GATE CITT
Of Interest to Women
By Winona Evans Reeves.
The other afternoon at the Birth of
a Nation we sat beside a very de
lightful southern woman, a Iventuck
ian, a woman whom we had never seen
before and even now do not know
her name. We were so pleased that
accident should have made the num
ber of her seat 7 and ours 8 because
cause it was as if we had seen the
picture With a dual personality. 8he
had her little boy with her, a child
perhaps six years old, and her con
versation with that little boy is what
made us see the picture as it register
ed itself on the retina of southern
eyes. We learned that she was born
In Kentucky and that tho little boy
loved horses because his grandfather
raised fine horseB. This woman's
grandfathers on both sides had fousht
for the southern confederacy and
liad lo3t their lives in tho civil war.
It didn't take a very doscernlne
mind to see that that little boy know
all about the lost cause and he kept
track of that picture every minute.
Now and then he'd say, "Yes, mother,
but where are the confederate sol
diers." In the great battle scene
every time the confederate flag came
up to that Btone wall she clapped and
cheered, and every time old glory
flashed across the screen we clapped
and cheered, but we met on common
ground and both cheered Lincoln.
When the raiders went through that
lovely old southern homo, she said
to the little boy, "cayn't you see, son,
what they are doing?"
There Isn't any doubt in the world
but that The Birth of a Nation is a
southern picture, but it isn't going to
do any harm to the north, tho victor
ious side in the war, neither is it go
ing to stir up any strife, but it is go
ing to do this—it will make the north
ern people get the viewpoint of the
southerners in a more graphic way
than a hundred printed volumes would
do4 And so as the last strains of
"The Star Spangled Banner" died out
and we said good bye, not one con
viction of ours had been changed, but
we looked into her face and under
stood her viewpoint better for having
seen The.Birth of a Nation.
Some one in speaking of the num
ber who have "gone forward" at the
Scoville tabernacle within th© last
two weeks, said: "A lot of them are
children," and we thought of a story
Dr. NewcomJb once told on a com
munion day at the First Westminster
Presbyterian church, when there were
no grown people joining the church,
only four little boys stood before the
altar. This is the story as Dr. New
comb told it:
One Friday night up In the high
lands of Scotland, an old Presbyterian
elder came home from the preparatory
service at the kirk, down hearted and
discouraged. The good wife said to
him: "Did none ask for tokens to
night?" You know in Scotland when
one wishes to join the churoti, they
appear before the minister and the
elders, and if they pass the examina
tion as to their beliefs and convic
tions they receive "a token," which
they present on Sunday morning at
communion. So when the wife said:
"Did none ask for tokens tonight?"
the old elder said: "None but a wee
little boy." But the name of that boy
was David Livingstone.
As has been said Defore in this
column, the women who stand for
equal suffrage today deserve no spec
ial credit for their position in the
matter, the thinking people in the
course of time have come to realize
its justice and its consistency with a
democratic form of government. Sev
eral Keokuk women knew personally
the pioneer suffrage worker, Susan B.
Anthony, among them Miss Merta
Mitchell. Miss Mitchell is a graduate
of the law department of DePaw Uni
versity ana practiced law for years in
St. Louis, and met at one time and
another most of the prominent women
of the country. A few days ago in
speaking of the newly organized suf
frage association here, she spoke of
Susan B. Anthony's personality, and
said »he was a lovable sweet old
woman when one met her in a social
way, but that when she spoke in public
some times a harsh note crept into
her speech, due doubtless to the
memory of the treatment which sho
had received from almost every quar
ter, for a belief which she knew was
just and which time would justify.
Miss Flora Dunlap said recently in
the New York Evening Post that
Iowa women are making the suffrage
campaign, not on the basis of unjust
laws or unfair treatment to women,
but because they believe that equal
suffrage Is fair and Just to women,
and that Iowa men wish to he fair
