A writer iu a recent number of Th

who want to let woman s sutlrage wait
until we get the temperance question
settled are like the man who was hur

ami the man turned and called out to
her, "For God's sake, madam, don't
wait to get up but hurry right along!"
This shoe does not tit the Woman's
Christian Temperance Union as its en
einies will testify, for our organization
has been carrying on the suffrage work
these manv years with an elhciency
which arouses the wra'h of conserva
lies. ltightly understood, we hae no
quarrel with the above statement trom
The Column or with the illustration.
But we have good and suilicicnt reason
that it is not rightly undcrst I'1 by
some, but that through confusion of
ii'eis all temperance workers are some
times included in the category with the
over anxious man quoted. We know
woman's suffragists who make quite as
serious a mistake in the opposite ex
treme. There are those who would
have all other reforms wait foi suffrage.
To our minds, this js very like insisting
that a child sha 1 make no attempt to
move around the room until it has
learned to walk. The objections to
this method are many and obvious;
chief among them being that the aer
age chihl would never Jearn to walk.
We do not expect linal victory without
the ballot, but we are not sorry to have
agitated the tempt ranee question until
total abstinence-has become recognized
as the correct principle both morally
and scientifically. We see no cause to
regret that we have put compulsory
temperance instruction into the public
schools of all our land with tin; excep
tion of those in two states. Nor do we
consider the time wasted in which we
have accomplishi d numberless other
practical reforms which have made the
temperance cause leap forward many
years. If we have not waited to "get
up" we have nevertheless succeeded in
crawling1 with so much effect that we
have made ourselves mote feared and
hated by the liquor dealers, on their
own statement, than eye:; the voting
members of the Christian churches. In
addition to this, we have done some
most effectual training of our women,
titling them for the various duties of
citizenship, when all of its rights,
privileges and responsibilities shall de
olve upon them. Last and greatest
we have accomplished what the leaders
of the suffrage associations have ad
mitted that they failed to accomplish
after years of strenuous efforts we
have "induced women, in large num
bers to labor with enthusiasm tor their
own emancipation. What women
would not do when their own "eman
cipation," considered in the abstract,
seemed to be the sole issue, they have
done when they saw in that emanci
pation their only chance to protect
their homes and dear ones from the
licensed evils of society.

As respects character, the British and
American publics are strikingly at one. 1
The tone of popular sentiim nt is much
the same. The attitude toward ques- j
tions (if general human interest is often
identical. Political ideals are, at hot- 1
torn, not so unlike as superficial observ
ers fancy. Party spirit manifests itself
in very similar fashion. Both are sensi
tive, though in slightly varying degrees,
to the same appeals. The same national
spirit animates both, showing itself in
quite characteristic fashion when the
jealousy of one is aroused against the
other. Indeed it is in their mutual rival
ries and jealousies that their spiritual
kinship is often most manifest. Their
diversity is superticial and provincial;
their unity fundannntal and racial.
The American who can divest himself
of provincialism in England and the
Englishman who can lay aside his in
sularity in America each finds himself

011 th Installment I'lan.
One, cf the most important men in the
employ of a firm that makes a specialty
of selling goods on the installment plan
is the "tracer." His duty, as his name
signifies, is to find out the whereabouts
of delinquent customers, who think to
get out of the trouble of future pay
mentsby quietly moving away and neg
lecting to leave their new address.
Nothing could bo more foolish than
such a ceurse, for this is a feature of
the business that tho installment houses
have reduced to a science. It is obvious
that in this city tlx great majority of
those who purchase goods on weekly
payments live in flats. This makes it a
comparatively easy matter for the dial
ers to keep them under surveillance, for j
one of the first things the cojlector does
is to see the janitor and inform him j
Which families in the house have bought I
goods on the installment plan. It pays j
to fee thi' janitor for this service, for he '
is in a position to know when any mov- ,
ing is about to take place, and the in- ,
formation he gives the collector has I
beeu the means of nipping in the bud
many a well laid scheme to get out of
paying a furniture bill.
Sometimes, of course, it happens that 1
a dishonest family will move away in '
such a hurry that the janitor is unable
to inform tho lirm in time. In such an
event the "tracer" is put on the case.
He seis about his work with the method
of the trained detective. He is familiar
with tho name and address of every fur
niture movi r in the city, and his ac
quaintance among tin hell ers is so ex
tensive that it is more than likely he
has a personal friend among the men
who moved the family he is seeking.
With such advantages his task is not
nearly so hard as the uninitiated would
imagine, and there would be fewer at
tempts mad" to "beat" the installment
dealers if it wire better known how lit
tle chance a person has to succeed.
