A BROADER OUTLOOK.
The broader outlook on life that
organization has given to women
is almost beyond comprehension. It
is only a few short years ago that
the masses of women looked at only
the four walls of the house and
called it home. Today the masses
of women look out into the condi
tions of social, industrial and public
life, and know that all these con
ditions are part of the life begun
within the four walls-in other words
the world is home. This change is
being burned into the hearts and
minds of women by getting together
in organizations, thus partaking of
the educational effect engendered by
the closer human touch. Each
woman is developing a more coam
prehensive attitude of mind, a
deeper sympathy, a more perfect un
derstanding, a ibroader outlook.
All organization works to this end.
The effect is not limited to women;
men have been quick to recognize
the educational and human value of
organization. This is readily recog
nized through the limitless number
and varieties of organizations found
among men of all nations. Women
respolid quickly to the spiritual touch
of the world. They are found in the
front ranks of all great human move
ments-it is the spiritual awakening
of womanhood. Organization is
needed to break down the artificial
barrier built up by the narrow ou0
look in the past. Women who come
into closer touch with all conditions
create a brigjter, cleaner, more
wholesome environment for them
selves and for all who come into
contact with them. Bitterness, pes
simismn, sarcasm are swept into the
dust heap of wornout customs, ideas
anti prejudices. Women are gaining
throught hetl roader outlook, but menlt
are gaining equally with them, and
the world grows infinitely better f:ar
the equal growth.

WHERE TRIBUTE IS DUE.
A leading daily said recently that
the American people have reached
the stage th at they occasionally
pay to a great leader the tribute
he has earned without waiting for
him to die. So it may not be amiss
in passing to pay a sincere tribute
to he many earnest and determined
we:nen who have done so much for
Ihe cause of equal suffrage in Mon
Iana and who are working now for
victory this fall. Their names are
mlany. Some have been in the ranks
for many years and their accomplish
ments have been in the nature of a
foundation for the organization that
stands today. Some are the workers
of which the world seldom hears
not all can build with "massive deeds
and great," but they are none the
less to be honored. And to the leader
of the cause in the state, Jeannette
Itunkin, comes a wish to expree.
some part of the debt the cause
owes to her unselfish and single de
.otion in her untiring efforts to
make Montana, her native state,
read "Victory, 1914."
AND IN CONCLUSION.
The editors of The Suffrage Daily
News wish to extend their thanks
to the many friends who have assist
edO them so materially in nmaking
their brief entrance into journalism
a happy and profitable experience.
The publishing of a newspaper un
dler normal circumstances is a rather
difficult undertaking. To edit a
paper under the pressure of the
many diverse interests which have
entered into the life of the past
week has been especially difficult;
to tpublish one in a print shop already
taxed t t tle limit by the extra work
entailed by fair week was a tre
mendtlous undertaking for all con
cerned. Nevertheless the thing was
done and it is with somie feelingi
o:f satisfaction in the concrete re
stilt of our endeavors that we hang
oil the hook, "Publication susltpndetd."
if we have helped the cause a of
equaltt suffrage in the state by adding
to its publicity delpartment, if we
have taken some little share of thel
turtden of the on::tign frot th'
faithful off'it.ers, if we have gaineil
at l'rind or lo.t ia foe F'or thle ;reat
tatuse in who:se intere'sts the paper,
\"as c:lteeived atlld p iblisned, we ale
ntire ttani glad that we have xhat
a hand in the good work.
