to speak about the war and every
thing in general. One man wrote no
boy should learn to be a soldier. Huh!
All right! Does the enemy think of it
that way? One darling of mine is
in the navy, the other is 10 years old
and a boy scout To maintain peace
we should prepare for war. In power
lies peace, good will; and God is with
the nation, that has the biggest guns
and the largest army and navy.
I never had any education except
what I gave myself, and that was
very little. I can sew, cook, wash,
iron, make beds, sweep and raise big,
clean, healthy boys and girls.
A woman can be a good, clean,
healthy woman; education or no edu

respect and not so much church and

who was a great church worker and
sent me to Sunday school three Sun

were the men who voted against
woman's rights in New Jersey the
other day? They were beer guzzling
and whiskey guzzling brutes, con
sumptives, wife beaters, pitifully ig

members, loafers and men who had
their price. If I ran for office I would
consider it an honor if such men
voted against me. Women of the
east, fear not such men. They can
not last "Let the name of the wick

so much as I do the handful of men
higher up, such as the saloonkeepers,
divekeepers, brewers, distillers and
others who sit on the thrones held up
by poor, suffering mankind.
The game is to keep all humanity
ignorant, superstitious, full of sor
row, hate and drudgery. The best
way to accomplish all these things is
to deprive women of the vote, be
cause the minute women en masse
start to think the thrones of liquor,
vice, capital and church will topple
and fall with terrible crash. That is
why these forces spent millions of
dollars to buy every man s vote in
New Jersey. But, thank God, there
are some real men in New Jersey
although they lack a majority. It is
out of work. Then they will leave the leaders of the system I despise
