Norway Me., March 8. Frills, fur

news of this hustling, thriving Now
In every lino of commerce and
finance .trade, and profession, the
Rentier sex of Norway Is successful
ly encased, and it is the most dis
tinctly "woman's town" In America.
The women not only clothe, hat and
shoe the population, but they grace
fully preside over meat markets, the
powtoflice and the three hotels.
The women of Norway marry the
living and bury the dead. Legal dis
putes are settled by a feminine Justice
of the peace. 8iek and wounded are
administered to by a woman doctor.
The countryside Is photographed by
another woman. For twenty-two
years the checks at the bank have
been cushed by a small white wo
man's hand, while a quarter of a cen
tury is the period that a woman has
swayed the morals, opinions and poll
ties of the town through the columns
of her paper.
A director in the street railway and
the corporation that lights the vil
lage Is a woman, and she attends each
and every meeting of the directorate
and gets her pay for attendance with
the same regularity that old Unoe
Russell Sage did.
Tlio Men Draff A lion t it.
Yet it cannot be said that the fair
ones of Norway compete with the
men. The latter are too gallant to
permit of competition. They simply
loll back in their big comfortable arm
chairs and admiringly tell what their
women "folks" can do.
It is a great deal. They are as
good housekeepers as though there
was not such a thing as stocks and
bonds .dry goods, undertaking and
embalming, the postotllce to be at
tended to and the printing presses to
run. The homes of this beautiful
little village are real homes.
The S. 13. and Z. S. Trlnce store
Is not only owned by two sisters, but
every thing in the shop is done by
women. The only connection that a
man can have with this establishment
Is as a purchaser.
"It was after I found that I could
only earn $2.50 a week as a school
teacher that I determined upon be
ing a business woman," Is the way
Miss Prince explains her entrance
Into the fields of commerce.
Rules for RiihIiicss Women.
"To succeed in business worn m
must know three things," is the dec
laration this smart business woman
made to me. "She must not run her
business with a mortgaged Btock, Bhi
must pay her bills two or three days
before they are due, thus greatly im
pressing the people from whom she
buys, and then a woman must always
be dressed well."
Across the street from Miss Prince
is a shoe store conducted by Miss
Kdith Smith. She is a young gl-1
who three years ago inherited her
stock from her father.
Mrs. Laura A. Sanborn can set the
type, feed the press and set up the
copy for the Norway Advertiser s
easily as she can write its editorials.
Mrs. Sanborn learned the printing
business soon after her marriage,
twenty-five years ago.
Women Honest Rankers.
"I was a good adder and that is
the way I started in the banking bus'
ness," is the modest explanation that
Cashier Stella IS. Pike gives of her
association with the Norway National
bank. "I soon found out, though,
that it took more than an adder of
figures to be a financier. But women
are especially adapted for the bank
ing business. We are by nature ho l
est and that is the thing that teir
in a bank."
If there is not a preacher handy
and a couple wish to get marrleJ,
Miss Margaret A. Baker is the one
whom the swain seeks out. As the
justice of the peace she is permu
ted to perform the marriage cere
mony, to acknowledge deeds and ad

Washington, March 8. A new
member of the United States senate
a man who conies as the choice of
the people of his Btate. and not be

the. trust-made millions Is W K

bly of states. On general matters
the voice of Idaho, so for as I deter
mine It, shall be for what a great ma
jority of the people want. And by
the people I mean the people not
the associated special Interests."
Mr. ilorah is a square- jawed,
sturdy proposition, with a lot before
him. H is only 42, und what he haa
he owes only to himself. What he
has he took. And he took it stand
ing up. In the taking he may have
knocked some men down but he aid

trip them ui.
Ilorah was born in Illinois. Then
he was a farmer boy in Kansas. I jit-
er he taught school, learned the law
and struck out for the coast. He
couldn't pay fare farther than Boise,
Idaho, so be nailed up a shingle there.

and well poised in his manner. He

His election to Hie senate Is Ho-
rah's first public oflice. He came in
to public notice several years ago
when retained us special counsel In
the prosecution of the dynamiters
who blew up the Hunker Hill and
Sullivan mines, at Coeur de ATene,
killing a number of non-union work
men. During the silver agitation in
the west Horah joined the silver re
publicans and stumped for them.
Silver republicans are mostly straight
republicans now, and so is Horah. A
year ago he began to stump ti.e statu
as a candidate for the senate.
Idaho does not, like Oregon, elect
senators by direct vote of the people,
but the result Is much the same. Cati
ilid'ites for the legislature or dele
gates to tho state convention are elec
ted with the understanding that they
will vote for a certain man. The
senatorial candidacy Is part of tho
issue In tho campaign, and when the
legislature meets there Is nothing for
the members to do but ratify the
choice of the people as expressed in
the elections. It Is in this sens.) that
lioraii was elected by the people.
