When you leave the telephone receiver
off the hook, you put the line out of commission.
Nobody on that line can make
call or receive a call.
This causes much annoyance and loss
of time to all concerned and possible loss
of money and life, all on account of somebody's
carelessness.
Always put the receiver back on the

Election Day At Bolivar And Harper's
Ferry.
Scottish Castle,
Boliv'r, W. Va
Dear Miss Lucas
I have been hoping to see you and tell
rou about our wonderful experiences of
Hection day, but opportunity has not
presented and 1 shall write you instead,
I fo.l .... ...:n i .1 ?..tu .
VI 1 Ittl JUU Will llCdl Ul 11 Willi ll'ICICM.
You know we entered upon the campaign
with no little timidity?really, 1
:eel we were quite "faint hearts" until
[he campaign was well upon us?but we
earned the initial step was the only hard
Dne 'except one of which I shall tell vou
later), and then we worked enlivened
with the sense of the justice of our cause
and faith that right would prevail if we
anly got behind it to see that it did !
But we were astonished at the favorable
:hange of sentiment among our citizens
[hat had come about in the last two years.
Instead of a scattering few. a strong half
and more of our population were in favor
Df woman suffrage, as the majority vote
proved.
Our men and women did lay aside preudice,
were eager to inform themselves
and stopped to think; and when this
was done you know the suffrage cause
lad to win. Give it momentum and it
aas to go; there is no stopping it now.
Defeat in our State has checked us for a
ime, but equal rights will come.
But if we entered upon the campaign
n the beginning with timidity, how do
rou think we felt when we received the
nstructions to the effect that we were to
aresent in person a certain card at the
jolls ?
That was the other hard thing to which
referred, and which we thought we
:ould not do, so we forthwith mailed
hese cards two days before the election
o the complete polling list?with some
nclosures of sutfrage literature (because
f people think, they are with us; but if
ve do not furnish food for thought, how
an they best think ? So literature and
II went along.)
But. "savs I to myself"?in the lan
;uage of the old lady?if the women of
church were to give a supper to buy a
hurch carpet (something they very much
vanted) they would have to be on hand
t the supper. If it were said the women
Yould stay at home and the men would
ind the supper on the table, would the
upper be a success ?
There could be no live interest that
vay; niceties of service would be lackng,
personal attention wanting, poor atendance,
poor receipts the result?and,
las, poor carpet.
If we want patronage, be at the church
larlors; if we want the vote, show our
lesire for it by our interest in election
nd let our presence be a reminder to
'place the X in favor of the amendment."
Thinking on these lines, a committee
neeting was called?we had more cards
irinted and we were on hand at both
tarper's Ferry and Bolivar precincts a
ittle before sunrise, when the polls should
ipen according to statute.
Mr. Hallam had arrived from the west
hat morning at 5.30, and after serving him
i tempting and delicious breakfast we
tailed for the polls. It was very inpiriting,
that drive. My daughter and I
we both hope to vote when she is of
ige) were filled with enthusiasm and felt
he importance of casting the ballot alnost
as much as Mr. Hallam. Our spirits
vere high, our colors waved from the
arriage in the crisp morning air; and the
ed, white and blue of our waving flags
ind orange trimmings were the colors
hat only a little later gloried the sky.
We stopped our carriage well without
he sixty-toot limit, and each with a bas
;ei, one or carus 01 remmuer 10 ine voicr,
nd the other of fresh, aewy chrysanhrmums
and marigolds, two ladies met
ach voter as he came toward the polls,
sking consideration of the first and to
vear our colors of the day.
It was almost like a reception--the genlemen
were so courteous, and when
ome one remarked this they said, "How
ould it be otherwise when the ladies are
o gracious ?" Be that as it may, nothng
happened from sunrise to sunset,
vhen we left the voting place, to jar the
eelings of the most sensitive, and instead
>f feeling out of place it seemed the most
latural thing to be there. Not only was
here no rudeness to us, but none among
he men, no noisy argumentation or even
me boisterous sound from anywhere
round?it was earnestness, good humor,
;ood feeling everywhere.
The members of the committee at the
ioIIs were most ably assisted by many
if their friends and co-workers who calld
throughout the day where they were
tationed just outside the sacred preincts.
I am sure you will be interested in
ome of the incidents of the day, a tew
if which I shall give you.
The first gentleman who registered his
rote said as he returned, "I did not wear
he flower but I voted for you. I made
ip my mirtd to do so after leaving you
nd before casting my ballot. Women
hat think enough about it to be here beore
I am deserve recognition; they helpd
in everything else and they will here."
Soon another came along and said, "I
iav? never worn a tlower in my life, but
sha'l do co with pleasure, for I have
teen waiting for this year for twenty
rears!"
Another said, "I have come from Washington
to vote for you an1 I have brought
ny two sons to do the same."
Still another said, "Of course i am for
ou. Here you women are the owners
if property; and some of you in this
ounty, owning several hundred acres,
re without a voice in the legislation that
ffecls your property."
One gentleman who had come up in a
ar so rapidly we could rot see him,
ame up to us after voting, saying, "I
oted for you. I used to live here, but I
ave be*n in Washington thirty years.
Ay daughter has been speaking throughut
the State for suffrage, she has spoken
vith equal ease from the same platform
rith Hughes, addressing thousands, or
-om a store box to the smaller crowds."
ind we felt proud of a girl who. if her
ither had not moved away, would have
iter.
i r
been a Harper's Ferrian and who was
serving the cause with such distinction.
As the day wore on there was scarcely
a man without a yellow boutoniere?
however he may have cast his ballot?
and w hether they were coming up tow n
from Harper's Ferry or dow n town from
Bolivar, all were wearing the yellow
llower.
One man told us afterwards that he said
to himself, "1 am not going to wear the
yellow flower," so he went down town
one back way and returning slipped up
another; all day he dodged the eloquent
little golden faces, but toward evening,
as he cut a cross a path in one of his
back street meanderings, he saw a little
yellow flower that had been dropped.
He said, "1 could not pass that bright
blossom, so I pinned it on my coat sayiig,
to it, M have dodged those ilowers
all day and here you are on my coat 1' "
One man said to one of the committee,
"1 am glad to help you, your father showed
me how to cast my first ballot."
And thus the day was spent in pleasant
reminiscence and many almost tender
and inspiring incidents, auspicious of a
hopeful future for suffrage and for the
good that will follow in its train.
It was truly a wonderful day?we were
lifted out of the common into the hopefully
speculative. I think we were better
patriots, with increased confidence in
our inlluence toward the good we desire
to attain; we were not less womanly,
but more womanly women.
We watched the sun rise through the
gap, and saw it set beyond the mountains,
and that day will always be remembered
as one of the most snlendid in our ex
perience.
One thing, however, had we the ballot:
the jail would not be the voting place, as
it was in the Haiper's Ferrv precinct.
Of course there were no prisoners within
?since prohibition has gone into effect
the building seldom has an occupant?
and of course the stone walls told no tales
and the gray stone only toned in with the
rocky ledges of the hillside to the rear.
But the ballot is the sign of the "free
man," and surely no jail is a fitting place
to cast the vote. Economy is surelr the
only reason such a place could be selected?if
so, and woman had the franchise
and economy was necessarily to be considered
we think we could find some
place that would be donated for use on
election day more suitable for the high
privilege of which the voter avails himself.
Or, we might raise the money to
rent something better?that is one thing
admittedly we ran do?we can help out
on money matters.
I was afraid at first that jail would spoil
our day and weigh on our enthusiasm
and patriotic ardor, but I am happy to
say it did not in the least The day was
gloriously beautiful and our experiences
splendid. We rose above name an 1 association,
and the majesty of the mountains
and the occasion was not to be affected
by that small pile of stone; and
the song of the near-by Shenandoah
rushing over its stony bed was louder,
more rythmic, sweeter than any fancied
echoes from within the walls where that
day freemen cast their ballots
When wc learned of our victory at our
two precincts we felt very appreciative of
the support we received. So a commitA

the polls arranged a plan to express our
thanks. Great cards were printed reading,
"Thank You for Your Votes," and
these were placed mid flags and yellow
streamers and festoons that decorated the
cariiage, and to the ascompaniment of
tinkling bells on the harness we expressed
to all our thanks as we drove through

I have written you quite at length, but
the occasion was so rich in many ways
I felt I must touch upon some of them.

inspiration and enlightenment, and not

"(iiant Forest" SaVed.
Announcement is made that the ' giant
forest." containing 160,000 acres and located
in California, has been saved from
destruction through the co-operation of
the Department of the Interior and the
National Geographic Society.
This forest, which contains the largest
trees ir. the world, had been acquired by
private parties, who held it for |70,000.
Congress had appropriated $30,000 for
its purchase, and when the Department
of the Interior was unable to make the
deal the National Geographic Society officials
were consulted, and they put up
the necessary $20,000. Timber in the
forest alone is worth $150,000.
The largest tree in the world, the General
Sherman, which has a circumference
of 102 feet, a diameter of 36 5 feet and a
height of Z79.9 feet, stands in this forest.
There are numerous other trees of slightly
smaller growth. It is also believed
that the trees which constitute the giant
forest are the oldest in the world, some
of them having been 2,000 years of age
when Christ was born.
How To Check That Cold.

The final returns show that the woman
suffrage amendment was defeated in
West Virginia by a vote of about three to
one. The amendment to increase the
pay of members of the county courts was
defeated by a vote of about two to one.

Hogs Paid For His Home.
The story of the way in which Henry
Fesenmyer, of Iowa, has become a leading
swine breeder is told in Farm and
Home by Fred L. Perry. It is the story
of a struggle from a $IO-a-week job as
harness maker to a prosperous harness
shop of his own and from that, by slow
degrees and in the face of many discouragements
and losses, to his present
standing as one of Iowa's most successful
ho^ breeders.
The start in pure-bred hogs was made
with one registered sow, kept in a pen
on a town lot. From this the establishment
grew to a five-acre lot on the edge
of the town, then to a little farm where
cholera destroyed his herd, back to the
five-acre field again, then permanent success
and big profits. Now he has 30
acres of fine rolling land, a big fine house,
new barns, and hog houses, and further
improvements arc projected for the near
future
"I always took an interest in stock,
especially hogs, and liked to handlethem,"
said Mr. Fesenmyer. "One day I was
coming home trom the shop at noon and
saw several men groped around a pen in
a neighboring livery barn. I went in and
found them lookingata big Poland-China
sow. 1 knew nothing at that time of the
pure-bred business, but the sow looked
good to me. She was of big type and
weighed 700 pounds. I paid $100 for her.
This looked like a lot of money to my
wife and me, and we talked it over pretty
carefully before buying. It was a good
buy, however. From that sow I raised
18 pigs the first year that sold at $40 a
