Mrs. Peck gave a humorouB talk and called out Miss Mabel Willard who has been traveling the past two years iin Australia, Mew Zealand, Japan, pbina, Sweden, jftnland, Ger many land London, observing the workings of Woman Suffrage in those countries. She had the pleasure of marching with the suffragettes in London. She is a typical lady and her remarks were received with much pleasure. At 8 o'clock they adjourned to the Methodist church and listened to welcomes by the mayor, and from the press, the churches and responses to the same. Hold Memorial. Wednesday forenoon was devoted to business and exercises in memory of Julia Ward Howe, Mrs. Mary J. Neely and Mrs. Josephine Barnes the last two being earnest workers for the cause in Iowa. At the afternoon session Miss Flora Dunlap of Des Moines, gave an ad dress upon "The New York Shirt Waist Makers' Strike." Mrs. Mary J. Coggeshall as member of the National W. S. A. committee gave a very inter esting report of the last national meeting. Dr. Nina Dewey closed the afternoon session with an impassioned address on "The Mother's Need of the Ballot," and called for pledges which amounted to $608. Wednesday evening Bishop Frank Bristol of Washington, D. C., gave his address, "My Young Man," closing with an eloquent appeal for the ballot for women. Mrs. Peck Replies. Thursday forenoon came reports on press work, woman's standard, church work, Men's league for Woman Suf frage and the rally at the state fair. In the afternoon were reports of clubs, resolutions committees and the reply of Mrs. M. A. Peck to the article in the September Atlantic, "The Ladies' Battle," by Mollie Elliott Sea well. The fallacious reasoning of the writer was clearly exposed, and many of her statements shown to be abso lutely falBe. The writer falls back up on the old Greely doctrine, that the ballot must be backed by a bullet, just when the enlightened nations are coming to discard the war theory n# coHlino differences. In times of war women can make themselves quite as useful in other ways than shouldering arms. Mrs, Harriet Evans of Corydon read a paper on Woman Sugrage in European countries. Dr. Aylesworth Spoke. The final address was given Thurs day evening in the auditorium by Dr. Barton O. Aylesworth of Colorado, organizer and lecturer for the National Woman Suffrage association. Dr. Aylesworth, formerly of Drake university, has resided in Colorado fourteen years and has perfect knowl edge of woman suffrage and utterly refutes the false statements made by its opposers. He gave unstinted praise to the work of Judge Lindsey, whfse re-election was accomplished by the votes of the women. He worked three months last winter in New York with Mrs. Belmont, at the time of the girls' strike, speaking of her as a broken hearted, great brained woman who is devoting herself and her wealth to the good of her sex. Thus ended one of the most enthus iastic meetings of Iowa Suffragists. The victory in Washington state, with good news coming in along all lines, and the fact that the men are coming to their aid is giving the women new courage.

The youth Is em ployed as checker of the Burlington yards by day and is a universally liked lad among his fellows both young and old. The first knowledge of the slug ging came when two workmen en route home aiong South Vine street, found the bo lying across the side walk unconscious. They tried to rouse the lad and he returning to conscious ness, was able to rise only after being assisted but unable to go on by him self. The two men who were unknown to the boy, took him to the home of George Halsted, 206 North Madison avenue while the family were eating supper. At that time Clarence was in a dazed but conscious condition and talking as though in a stupor managed to make plain that he had been struck over the ear by some one unknown to him, after his assailaft bad spoken a few words to him. He said that after being struck over the left ear, he did nor remember anything until found by the two men sometime later. He was removed to his home a little later In the evening. Has B»en Followed. His friends at the Burlington yards are aroused over the affair and are anxious to locate the person guilty of the assault. It was stated there this morning that Barber had told them of a colored man whom he had been meet ing near the end of the Vine street bridge frequently of evenings and that this fellow would often start out to walk after him. He Said that he did not know whether he was being fol lowed or not, b*if. that walking along after him for a long-distance, it was only upon thefjoy turning onto another street that his follower left him. He was getting alarmed at it, and said that he would be on his guard for fear of PRICE, 25 CTS. THE PEOPLE'S KEMEDT for Coughs. Colds,' Oroun, Whoopinff-C'ouch.

Address '""a .!$*• i' I itH 'iH Growers Attention Read what Professor Aven Nelson, State Horticulturist of the State of Wyo ming, says regarding The Big Horn Basin Country "I beg to state that my visit of inspection to the fruit section of the Big Horn Basin was exceedingly satisfactory. The orchards that I visited along the Big Horn River are in full fruit, even this year. I regard the outlook for the lands along the River from Worland to the Cannon and the lower course of the Shoshone from Cowley to Ionia as exceedingly' promising. My observa tion leads me to believe that these lands will becom' as valuable for the pro* duction of high grade apples as even the best of those In Idaho and Montana. Shell Creek this year was certainly a surprise to anyone who visited the lo cality. I think anyone wouli. be justified in predicting that these lands will very shortly become more valuable for fruit than for any other crop that might be grown" Such expert opinion as the above, given by an unprejudiced state Official, should have weight with those looking for orchard lands.
