If we were in the blessed estate of
a, married woman with an income of
over $4,000 we would give a pink tea
to Dr. Anna Shaw and ask her to ex
plain whafc she means by advising
women to "strongly protest against
collection of the income "tax," since,
women cannot vote.
Does Anna mean to pound thd col
lector on the head with a skillet, pr
does she mean to protest wth a
shriek? It is the degree of militancy
that is troubling many women. Cuss

to merciful emotion, as has been well1
proved, and it is not likely that the
female shrieking will; and it is too
early in her career to hope for wo
