O'CONNOR - Latest Novelties in T obacco Jars and Pipe Racks at Burford's | Woman Suffrage Paraders I [J Will Go in Mediaeval Dress ? ? \ WASHINGTON, Jan. 16? Plans for ? the woman suffrage pageant March 3 * have been perfected. The novel spec - tacle of women wearing mediaeval or ancient Greek costumes will be wlt ? nessed. ? The procession will be divided into ? five sections and with each section * will be heralds dressed In mediaeval ? costumes, who will from time to ? time along the route of the parade J repeat famous suffrage speeches which ? have been made in the last few years ? in this and foreign countries. The | parade will be composed of floats, al ? lcgorical figures portraying the con ? dition of women from the dawn of I creation down to the present time. * So far as possible, women musicians will compose the bands and the dem - onstration will be reinforced by the . presence of parading men sympathiz ers of the cause. A resolution appealing from the de cision of Major Sylvester, chief of the Washington police, to refuse the women a permit to parade on Penn sylvania avenue was adopted and vig orous protests against the edict will be made to the commissioners. Fail ing of redress here, the women pro pose to take the matter to President Taft. For over one hundred years Pennsylvania avenue had been open to men paraders, and the refusal of the first request made by women for j a similar privilege will be met with a general campaign of resistance. The Congressional committee (the "lobby") of the National American Women Suffrage Association has op ened headquarters in Washington. Miss Alice Paul, of Philadelphia and M iss Emma Burns of New York will represent the National Association, co-operating with two members ap pointed by the several suffrage asso ciations of the District of Columbia. Announcement was made by Miss Paul that the principal efforts of the committee would be to secure from the extra session of Congress the pas- | sage of a resolution providing for an j amendment to the Constitution of the I United States enfranchising all the j women of the country. I High Cost of Living in South America The Americans engaged in the rub ber trade in South America, far up I the Amazon river, never kick at the cost of living when they get back to Uncle Sam's domain. To begin with . it costs $500 for one person to get ' there and back. His troubles begin when he looks around and does a little marketing. All meats are 50 cents a pound, and the ice to keep them from spoiling is five cents a pound. Potatoes are 14 cents a pound and rice is eight cents. Itread is 28 cents for a two pound loaf -and it isn't such wonder ful bread either. Butter is 60 cents . and sugar is 14 cents. Eggs cost 10 cents apiece when you can get them at all and milk is 85 cents a pint. ! Beer is 50 cents a bottle and whiskey is $2.00 a quart. Coal costs $22.00 i a ton and one is charged 25 cents to have a shirt washed and six cents . | for a collar or a handkerchief. The American has to stay there ' from July until February if he is in < the trubber trade. One worker can tap about one hundred trees a day ' and from this he gets a pail of rub ber milk which he has to smoke up each afternoon when his day's work is done. Then the crude product is ready for shipment. American Catalogues in the Chinese Language ? I American firms are preparing cata , logs and advertising matter in the Chinese language, with an end in view of reaching the demands and | tastes of the Chinese trade. Sewing machines, phonographs, lamps, pat ent medicines, yeast and yeast pow der, cigarettes, and condensed milk are among the articles extensively ad vertised by placards in Chinese post ed about the streets of Chinese cities. One enterprising American baking powder firm has an illustrated book let containing numerous recipes in Chinese and distributed among the Chinese people. An American university issues its catalog in Chinese to attract Chinese students desirious of going abroad fori a Western education. An American! I correspondence school advertises very extensively in Chinese throughout the cities of China and does considerable business with ambitious students. Many American patent medicines are advertised throughout China by lit erature in Chinese only. A leading American sewing machine company also attributes much of its sucess to the spreading of its Chinese advertising literature among the Chin ese people. Recently a large whole sale American drug house secured an ' idea of an appropriate trade mark for its products in China from an Amer ican consul and is now issuing its ' labels and advertising matter in con nection with this trade mark, the lat ter being particularly adapted to Chinese ideas.
