Many of them must be on hand at
7.lo In the morning, and all at a

"Woman's rights" and "unions"

scarcely understands the meaning of
suffrage and seemingly cares little or
nothing about It. Her aim seema to
be to get to work on time and get a
goodly number of aalea on her book
so that shs may be advanced (and
the process Is slow). She must oon
stnntly practise economy, for she
usually makes her own clothes and
has to help bear family burdens un

Many of these large stores have
dully salea conducted on the nave'
