Chicago, Jan. 24.-The argument so often brought forth by anti-suffragists, that woman suffrage is bound to make women masculine, has just received a severe blow at the hands of Dr. Anna Blount, a prominent Chicago suffra gist. On a careful investigation of the tmatter she arrived at the conclusion that the afternoon tea, the most femi nine of all social affairs, is the best means of extending suffrage educa tional work. So a series of teas has been arranged for every Friday after noon in the Chicago suffragists' head quarters, to which all who are inter ested in the cause, either actively or casually, are invited. "Anti-suffragists will be especially welcome," says Dr. Blount, "and we hope they will forget the strange no tion that suffragists become strange, sexless creatures when they find-we enjoy a bit of a chat over a cup of well-brewed tea as much as the woman who has no thought beyond a box of candy and the matinee." .Mrs. Grace Wilbur Trout, the new state president, is enthusiastic over the suffrage pink teas, as she delights in calling them, and will co-operate with Dr. Blount to make them a suc ess. "These Friday afternoon teas interest many women who are not pa ularly interested in the general suffra" work," she declares. "We have so ny literary women in our ranks that will be an easy matter to obtain excei reviews of the latq books. "I never scorn th 'nk tea. It fills an important place In "'r social life, and can be put to goo ~'e by suf fragists in their educational rk." When the idea was first colncelved by Dr. Blount, it was with sole irqect of stimulating an interest in the llit3 ature department of the state, of which Dr. Blount is chairman. "Any number of splendid books bearing On the subject of woman's suffrage have been brought out by the publishers during the last few years," said Dr. Blount recently. "It is surprising how many 'women are unacquainted with these recent works, and, in my opinion, a short revie wof one book every Fri day afternoon, with a general discus sion following, accompanied by a cup if tea, will stimulate a greater enthu siasm and interest in the literature as well as the movement itself." MRS WITHTCHER ARRIVES. Washington, Jan. 24--Mrs. Margar et Zane Witcher of Salt Lake City, to day delivered the vote of the Utah electors to the president of the sen ate. She was the first woman to ap pear among the messengers coming in from the various states. She traveled 2,380 miles and received $585 for her mileage. ESCAPED AFTER FIFTEEN YEARS. W. p.
