Whatever Else the New Woman May
Be Slio Is Certainly Not That.
My only cause for telling a political
story between campaigns Is that I heard
this particular anecdote Just the other
day. Last fall a new woman set out to
proselytize. She was a very young new
woman, well satisfied with ber own politi
cal disability, but strongly determined to
make converts for the party to which she
fancied she belonged. Sbo was particu
larly Interested in a certain candidate,
running on the Democratic ticket. Her
first call was on her own godfather, a
Democratic warhorse, a man who has
worked and held office for the Democratic
party for many years.
"Godfather," began the new woman,
"I want to get some votes for a friend
of mine. He Is a perfectly lovely man
and I want you to prom'se to otetfor
Handle," replied the old man, who
naturally thought that the girl was asking
him to make an exception In favor of a
Republican, from his lifelong habit of
otlng the straight Democratic ticket,
"you know I would do almost anything
for you, but I can't go back on my party."
Maudle pleaded and pleaded, until finally
her godfather relented so far as to ask who
the fatorcd candidate might be.
" Why, Judge Blank, of course," answered.
Maudle In some surprise, though his name
hail not been mentioned upto that time.
The old man's facu was a study for a
while. Then he chuckled softly to him
self and said. "Girlie, have I to be asked
at my time of life to support a nominee
of my own party? Don't you know that
Judge Bkink is a Democrat and I am a
But Maudle had burst Into tears. "I
think you arc a mean, horrid, old man not

talk? How was I to know to what nasty
old party you belonged? I think politics
are Just awful!"
