L. Boyd Willard Service Station Dealer.’’ and like all free products it is a drug on the market. It is estimated that iif a car owner would try to do all the things suggested by the trade pa ’ | pers, the car builders battery manufacturers, he would have no time ’ j-to drive, to attend to business or keep jnp'a speaking acquaintance with his • family.” ; “As a matter of fafct, a battery does • not need a great deal of care, and the 1 average driver gets good results by; •; putting in a little water every week or c so, and making regular calls at the L ; service station.” “It is always , important to give a battery the right start, ami the first - hing every purchaser of a car—new c or old —should do is to drive around to r ■ the battery service stations so that . his battery could be registered and ) given the right sort of start toward a useful and active life.” I . WESTMINSTER, MD.;FRIDAY AFTERNOON, AUGUST 20, 1920 I FIGHT FUR SUFFRAGE r. WUN 1 1 ; I NEARLY 27,000,000 WOMEN WILL HAVE ■ RIGHT TO VOTE THIS FALL-REGIS TRATION IN CARROLL COUNTY WILL BE SEPTEMBER 28 AND OCTOBER 5. ABOUT 350,000 WOMEN IN MARY LAND CAN VOTE. We congratulate the fair “suffs” on their victory in having the Tennessee Legislature to ratify the. Suffrage amendment. Since the ratification var ious charges of bribery have circu lated against anti-suffragist and the regulars, which is usually the case af ter victory. The Supervisors of Elections in every county of the State will meet and make every mechanical process of registration and voting to the end so that the women voters will not be subjected to any annoyance and delay. About 405,200 women in Maryland over 21 years of age will be able to vote this fall, it is estimated. From reports a number of women in this city have announced their intentions not to register. All white women should register as the colored will take this opportunity. The days of registration in Carroll county are September 28 and October 5. The biggest obstacle confronting the Supervisors of Election is the county poll books. It seems that the county will be put to the expense of fm-nishing new books as the old poll books 'afe filled to running over, on certain letters. If time is too short to secure new books why then they will have to arrange pages after each letter until new books can be secur ed and the names transcribed. Nearly 10,000,000 additional wbmen will be enfranchised, at least half of them in States now regarded by pro fessional politicians as doubtful. More than 16,000,000 women already hold the right to vote for President under State laws, but only 7,000,000 were en titled to vote for members of the Fed eral .Senate and House of Representa tives. Moreover, the suffrage amendment confers upon women the right to hold office. Under that measure, they en joy the same privileges as men, and it need not be surprising if women in Increasing numbers aspire to seats in both branches Congres or even aspire, in time, to the Presidency and Vice-Presidency of the United States. In the South, something like 4,000,- 000 negro women are enfranchised and until or unless the Southern States find means of barring them, nany more thousands of them will be .found voting, than is the case nowj "with negro men. In most t>aurhe,rn States men of the negro race have been disenfranchised in great numbers iy “ grandfather” clauses in the State Constitutions, by educational and other tests. But it is not in the South that na tional interest will center with wo man’s suffrage going into effect by constitutional mandate. Not more than one or two of those States, if any will be rendered doubtful as be tween the national parties, it is as sumed. But it is by no means certain that the States of the East and Middle West will not be profoundly affected politically by extending suffrage to women,* thereby increasing approxi mately 100 per cent, their voting-pop ulation. leaders of both parties are quite aware of this and for weeks the two Presidential nominess and the two .groups of managers have busied them selves in behalf of suffrage, each seeking to make capital out of the sit uation. Governor Cox has been the more ardent advocate perhaps of rat ification and 0 certainly Democratic leaders generally have been more en thusiastic about it, feeling that if the Democratic State of Tennessee should provide the thirty-six vote the Dem ocratic party at large would profit [ more in the coming election. The States' in which women will j vote for the first time in November if , the amendment is finally proclaimed, where their balloting will be greatest I interest are Maryland, Connecticut, ! Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hamp-j shire. New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio and West As previously shown, the vote of the women in the ■South this year probably wiJLI have little effect upon the national politics 'on that section. - ,%i i*jj It was estimated that in the nine doubtful States just listed the num ber of women! above 21 years of age are as follows: Maryland, 405,200; j Connecticut, 368,644; Delaware, 64,286 ; | Massachusetts, 1,181,933; New Hamp j store, ’ 148.909 j New Jersey, 810,324; i New Mexico, 80,467; Ohio, 1,538,175,1 and West Virginia, 313,465. In addition to these nine States wo- j men will vote for the first time for members of the Federal House and ■ I Senate in 10 other doubtful States, ■ Illinois, Nebraska. Tennessee, Rhode ! Island, Indiana, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Wisconsin and Kentucky. Including Tennessee, the States j which have ratified to date are: Wis consin, Michigan, Kansas, Ohio, New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Massa- 1 chusetts, Texas, lowa, Missouri, Ar kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Miuneso-■ ta. New TBirapshire, Utah, California, Maine, North and South Dakota, Col orado. Rhode LI and. Kentucky, Ore gon, Indiana, Wyoming, Nevada, New- Jersey, Idaho, Arizona, New Mexico, i POUNDED 1838 Oklahoma and West Virginia. Those which rejected ratification are: Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and Louisiana. The States which have not acted are: Connecti cut, Vermont and Florida. North Car olina Senate has postponed action : until January. — > YOUNG SHIRK WALKS. 1 Feet Were Frozen In Harry Reiman'S Barn Last Winter— Both Ampu tated. The Baltimore Sun of Saturday says: The nurses in the accident ward of University Hospital are regretting the coming departure of Howard Shirk, 11 years old, of Westminster, who has been a patient in the ward since January 6, News of Howard’s dis charge reached his nurses yesterday. Howard was taken to the hospital on a cold day in January. The men who brought him told the physicians that they found him half-frozen in a bain near Westminster. His feet were severely frostbitten and had to be cut off at the ankles. It was not long after his arrival that he smiled his way into the hearts of his nurses. He told his nurses that he was a “handy man” for a farmer near Westminster. During his long stay in the ward the nurses have taught him to walk. He can not balance himself very well standing still, but he loses no time when walking. When asked what he expects to do when he becomes a man, he replies: “I want to be a doctor like these here at the hospital.'When I get older I am going to study hard and try to be one.” This is the lad that was missing from the home of Mr. Harry Geiman, near this city, last winter, and froze his feet sleeping in the barn after a walk, from Sykesville, after being taken there by a masquerader. m —i Ox Roast for Masons. k.

BABYLON RECEIVES LARGEST PERCENTAGE IN EVENTS-EXCELLENT TROPHIES. > 5 The Forest and Stream Club closed ' their camp on the Monocacy River on - Wednesday, August 11th, after the most successful year in its entire his tory of 46 years of living out of doors. The club added ten new members to its roster before going into camp. The , fish suppers of the club are so well known that the cooks have difficulty in handling the crowds. The atten dance each year was beyound any thing of previous years. Quite a num ber of Baltimoreans are members of this club.

The next day one weighing Three pounds was brought in and it was this bass that brought its owner the Silver Cup and the m ountain Pen. The club has among its members some of the best rifle shots in Maryland. Most of the casters have beat their records of last year and it is thought that the best of them will participate in the Tournament of the Nationanl Casting Association which will be held in Columbus Ohio, on August 25th.

Under provisions of the State El ection law it will be necessary for the committee to secure the signa tures of 500 voters to the petition for attorney Hawkin’s nomination. The petition must be filed with the Secre tary of State. No difficulty in se curing that number of signatures will be experienced, the committee de clared. They formed the Independent Re publican League, elected officers and designated an executive committee to prosecute a vigorous campaign through the State for their candidate — m > —■ ON THE FUNNY BONE.
