Considering thatTresIdent Wilson did as much as forty Roosevelts to carry New York for woman suf frage, this Republican appropria tion of woman suffrage Is amusing. In answer to Lloyd George's cuestion, England is told that there will be a million American soldiers ia Europe by next July. Too bad they cant all go NQW. Many.an ambitious young Ameri can, when he.

And bear In mind, that what is needed to end the war Is a few first-class Prussian defeats. In all the history of the prize ring, there has never been a Prussian fighter that would come back after being knocked down once or twice.
