Come to Think of It, Their Job* Are j Not Such Easy One*. George or Lemuel or Alexander of , the Pullman car—whatever the name may be—has no easy job. If you do not believe that go upstairs some hot summer night to the rear bedroom— that little room under the blazing tin ; roof which you reserve for your rela tives—and make up the bed fifteen or twenty times, carefully unmaking it between times and placing the clothes away in a regular position. Let your family nag at you and criticise you during each moment of the job, while somebody plays an obligato on the electric bell and places shoes and leath- , er grips underneath your feet. Imag ine the house is bumping and rocking— and keep a smiling face and a cour teous tongue throughout all of it! Or do this on a bitter night In mid winter, and between every two or three makings of the bed in the over heated room slip out of a linen coat and into a fairly thin serge one and go and stand outside the door from three to ten minutes in the snow and cold. In some ways this is one of the hard est parts of George's job. Racially the negro is peculiarly sensitive to pneu monia and other pulmonary diseases. Yet the rules of a porter's job require that at stopping stations he must be outside of the car—no matter what the hour or condition of the climate—smil ing and ready to say: "What space you got, guv'nor?"— Edward Huugerford In Saturday Even ing Post. , Pasteur's Tribute to Lister. Of all the tributes to the genius of Lord Lister, the discoverer of antisep tic surgery, probably the most touch ing was that paid to him by Pasteur, the famous French scientist. At a meeting of savants in Paris many years ago Lord Lister was present, and his brilliant achievements were explained to the audience by Pasteur. As he progressed in his speech he be-[ came more und more emotional, and j at last he was so carried away by ! his own eloquence that the tears stood in his eyes. Finally he stepped down from the platform, took Lord Lister, who was iu the front row of the audi ence, by both hands, led him back on to the platform and kissed him on both cheeks, after the manner of the French, in full view of the assembly. Few could have looked on unmoved at the great Frenchman's act of homage to the distinguished English surgeon. A Sure TrooT.

Here's an odd thing about the Unit ed States senate barber shop: Although the number of senators has hardly in creased at all. the number of shaves nas increased at a surprising rate in recent years. The reason is simply that the senate is now inhabited large ly by comparatively young men with smooth faces or wearing mustaches at most, and they are obliged to get 6haved every little while, whereas the old style senator with a riot of whisk ers never had occasion to visit a barber shop except every few months to get his hair trimmed.—Cincinnati Enquirer Woman Is Very Thorough.

Sh* May Have Been the Blumlins of "Sartor Resartus." During the year 1818 Thomas Car iyle, the Scotch philosopher, was liv ing at Kirkcaldy, and he seems then for the first time to have fallen in love. The lady appears not to have returned the attachment, although she, with great insight, at the age of twenty-two, perceived the genius of her suitor of twenty-five. In the letter in which she took leave of her admirer she used these signifi cant expressions: "Cultivate the mild er dispositions of your heart, subdue the more extravagant visions of the brain. * * * Genius will render you great. May virtue render you beloved! 'Let your light shine before men,' and think them not unworthy this trouble." Many years after, when Cariyle wrote his reminiscences, he described the episode. He says that Margaret Gordon "continued for, perhaps, some three years a figure hanging more or less in my fancy, on the usual roman tic and latterly quite elegiac and silent terms," The real Interest of the story is: Was Margaret Gordon the original of the Blumline of "Sartor Resartus?" One critic would have us answer that, although Jane Welsh might have in spired some of the details, it was Mar garet Gordon who was the true origi nal.—New York Telegram.

Every political party, every science and profession, every rank of labor and every creed is represented In the j noteworthy list of men who want to see the benefits of the franchise ex tended to women. To give in full the names of all the prominent men who are on this list would fill almost aD entire newspaper. Some conception j of the type of American citizens who : favor woman suffrage may be gleaned, however, from the following summary of acknowledged suffragists: President Wilson, and his entire cabinet, with the exception of Secre tary of State Lansing, who has nc vote this year and who accordingly has not deemed it proper to express his views on the subject; Governoi Martin G. Brumbaugh, former Presi dent Roosevelt, Vance C. McCormick, former Governors Pennypacker and Stone, State Commissioner of Labor i and Industry John Price Jackson, President John P. White, of the Unit ed Mine Workers of America; State Superintendent of Public Instructor Nathan C. Schaeffer, former Judge Dimner Beeber, James H. Maurer President Pennsylvania Federation ol Labor; Thomas A. Edison, James Scarlett, Dr. Russell H. Conwell and Dr. John A. Brashear, who was recently nominated by editors though out the State as Pennsylvania's great est citizen. In contrast to this array of Amer ica's and Pennsylvania's best citizens it is interesting to note that the most widely quoted opponent to woman suf frage in Pennsylvania during the pasl two weeks has been Neil Bonner, ; president of the National Liquor Deal ers' Association. Mr. Bonner expressed . his position at the convention ol New Jersey saloon keepers in At lantic City on October 7th, when he said: "Woodrow Wilson, President of this country, has declared that he pro poses to vote to give the ballot to women. I want to say to you that I. president of the Retail Liquor Dealers of the country, intend to vote against giving women the ballot." Right on the heels of Mr. Bonner's anti-suffrage declaration, former Pres ident Theodore Roosevelt issued a statement endorsing Votes for Womer in which he said: v "Vice and crime are conducted by a portion of the population in which j there are ten men to one And when you see men who make a business of that which is foul and base rallying against a cause, you may be- cenvinced that it is pretty BIAGIO FORMICA Shoe Repairing Opp. V.

No one who is at all observant of the ways of animals can have failed to notice how gentle large dogs, like the St Bernard and the Great Dane, are to their smaller canine fellows. It ia rare that a big dog turns upon one of the little fellows, no matter how aggravating and snappy the latter may be. Instead, he invariably treats the amall dog's antics with unruffled and dignified tolerance. For there is a recognized code of etiquette among animals, if you please, quite as much aa there is among human beings. In truth, there are not a few respects in which the animals can. give points on politeness and good behavior to man himself. good common sense to stick to that cause. Mind you, I don't believe that getting Votes for Women will cure ill our ills, but I give it as my delib erate and careful judgment that in every State where suffrage has been tried there has been, so far as I know, no single instance where it has produced damage. And there has been case after case where it has worked to the universal betterment of social ind civic conditions." The comments which other famous Americans have recently made on woman suffrage are as follows: Thomas A. Edison, the country's foremost inventor —"Every woman in this country is going to have the vote. That is certain." President Wilson —"I intend to vote for woman suffrage in New Jersey because I believe that the time has come to extend that privilege and re sponsibility to the women of the State. * * * I think that New Jersey will be greatly benefitted by this change." Governor Brumbaugh —"I believe women in Pennsylvania will be given the right to vote at ftie next elec tion. I believe they should be given the ballot." Vance C. McCormick—"Justice de mands equal rights for women. There can be no argument against this posi tion. The complete triumph of the cause cannot be far distant and I shall be glad to see Pennsylvania in line with those States where women have equal rights with men." Former Governor Pennypacker—"l propose to vote for woman suffrage because it seems to me to be only just to the women that they should have this means of protecting them selves and such property as they may possess." Former Governor Stone "Voting Is no more masculine than feminine. Voting is not degrading except as the voter degrades it. Women are not too refined' to vote. Their voting would bring the ballot to a higher state of refinement and it surely needs it." Mr. James H. Maurer, President Pennsylvania Federation of Labor — "Working women feel most keenly the necessity for the right of fran chise. Woman cannot have equal power with men in the industrial struggle while they are classified with idiots and iFresponsibles in political affairs. It is up to The working men of Pennsylvania to give them that power this year by voting 'Yes' on the suffrage amendment on Election Day." Dr. John Price Jackson—"Changed conditions in the industrial world have made it more and more necessary that women shall have greater power in the control of conditions that ef fect their lives." John P. White, President of the United Mine Workers of America— "The United Mine Workers in their international convention have with scarcely a dissenting vote, repeatedly a-am Smokeless Powder. Some smokeless powders decompose after awhile, and as a result of such deterioration they are likely to ex plode spontaneously. The destruction of the French warship Liberte, which blew up in 1911, is thought to have been caused by such an aceldent. As a precaution against such tragic hap penings all the powder of that kind used by our own navy is put through a process of remanufacture every five years, and there is a regular fortnight ly inspection of the stuff on hand on every battleship and cruiser. When It decomposes it gives out reddish, acrid fumes, which should give ample . warning of the threatened danger.— Youth's Companion. endorsed woman suffrage. Personally I heartily concur in their action on this all important issue." James Scarlett—"ln the women of Pennsylvania we have our greatest reservoir of moral strength. Woman suffrage will bring this force in full play for the benefit of all and it is bound to improve every aspect of politics." Former Judge Dimner Beeber—"ln no logical way can the right to vote be a matter of sex. If a woman pays taxes she should vote on how the money is spent. The antis position is untenable. It is not a privilege we are extending to women, but a right. If such an argument is used against women it must also be used against men." Dr. Nathan C. Schaeffer, State Su perintendent of Public Instruction—■ "When the opportunity comes to vote on woman suffrage in Pennsylvania I will embrace it. I have been in States where women have the vote and I want it in Pennsylvania." Dr. John A. Brashear—"During the life of my wife I always desired that she should have the same privileges of citizenship that I was enjoying, and, in November, I shall certainly vote so the wives of other men shall have the privilege I wished for my own." v , The fact that all of these prominent champions of woman suffrage are men who give the most careful and deliberate thought to a subject before making any comment upon it makes their endorsement of suffrage more valuable to the cause than almost any other factor. The women of Pennsyl vania are proud to have the support of these men and are grateful to them for tendering it, as their ex ample will undoubtedly influence thou sands of other thinking citizens in this State to vote favorably on the suffrage amendment on November 2nd. —J FARMERS OUT FOR WOMAN SUFFRAGE National Congress.
