The story of her triumph over her infirmities is thrilling in the extreme. When it is considered that she has never heard the words she speaks and must remember every position in which she places her tongue and lips, to sound the words, some idea may be gained of the task she has had in learning to make herself understood. 'One part of her address stands out prominently. When the question as to her political views was transmitted to her by her instructor, through her hands, she replied that she was a suffraget and a Socialist. Asked why a Sopialist, she answered, simply: "I thought." Unable to see or hear what is going on around her in this work-a-day world sfie has thought out economic questions in her own silent world and, when not learning to talk, has devoted her time to the study of present day conditions. If a girl handicapped as she has been, can arrive 'at the con clusions she has, through thought, and study, how much more readily should those who are in touch with the world's work and who can read the newspapers and other literature, awaken to their political needs, also through thought and study?
