Washington, March 3.President

She Smile That Won't Come Off.
Hosts of people are flocking to this
oity and there is a turmoil of excite
ment as the final preparations for the
first Democratic inauguration in six
teen years are completed. The inau
guration committee met at midnight
last night to perfect the arrange
ments for the pageants and fireworks
which are to mark the celebration.
William J. Bryan, who is generally
agreed upon as the next secretary of
state, arrived in Washington this
morning and was one of the first to
meet "Mr." Wilson. The, president
elect insisted upon being called "Mis
ter" Wilson today as he resigned as
governor of New Jersey Saturday and
is today a private citizen again.
Ten thousand marchers today join
ed in the demand for votes for wo
men in the most elaborate suffrage
demonstration in the world's history.
Suffragettes literally captured the
capital. They all but overshadowed
the inaugural ceremonies tomorrow.
Prom all parts of the country and
from distant lands, every conceivable
class of women was represented
every type, every profession, every
agefrom Baby Harvey W. Wiley,
Jr., son of the former chief chemist,
and being early educated in equal suf
frage by his parents, to Miss H. M.
Young, the eighty-seven-year-old
pioneer in the equal rights move
It was the overwhelming culmina
tion of a fifty-five-year battle for bal
lots in the United States. It was both
a protest against disinfranchisement
and a vivid, dignified, elaborate de
mand for equal rights at the polls.
There were three distinct features
to the demonstrationthe parade, a
series of tableaux on the treasury de
partment steps, and, tonight, a series
of mass meetings.
That today's demonstration was
distinctly for and by women was the
keynote forced home to all observers.
The women evinced that theirs was no
part in the inaugural ceremonies.

Then came floats denoting the
countries in which women have whole
or partial suffrage. Before them was
carried a banner labeled "Women of
the World Unite." The first float
represented Norway. Mrs. Knute Nel

seated amidst a minature forest of
waving Norwegian pine trees. Other
countries represented by floats, all
drawn by caparisoned horses, were
Finland, New Zealand, and Australia.
Each bore in large figures the date

spective national costumes.

The Bagley High school basket ball

CARRIED A RUG FOR A MUFF
But the Five-Foot Wolfskin Attracted
No Especial Attention on the
Streets of Boston.
Miss Geraldine Bowman, a student
at an eastern art school, recently
proved that women can wear any
thing and "get away with it." Misa
Bowman did no more and no less
than to parade through the shopping
district with a five-foot fur floor rug
rolled up into a muff and she failed
to excite attention. The girl accom
plished the feat on a dare and won.
Some of the students at the school
laid a wager that a woman could not
carry a large floor rug through the
streets of Boston and pass it off for
one of the huge muffs now in
vogue. Miss Bowman thought she
could carry through such a stunt to a
successful culmination and even pro
posed starting the parade during the
busy noon hour.
So takind a five-foot wolfskin rug
from the floor of her home, she gave
It a whirl or two about her hands
and with the head of the animal in
full view, she carried it gracefully
and soon was moving about in the
throng of busy shoppers. Trailed by
a half dozen doubting classmates Misa
Bowman strolled unconcernedly
through the downtown district and
there was not the slightest indica
tion that anyone mistrusted that the
beautiful skin which closely resembles
silver fox, was other than a genuine,
fashionably made muff.

Beginning next Sunday, March 9,
Archdeacon H. F. Parshall will con

The archdeacon's home is at pres

Farmer Turmut had had a good day
at market. His cattle had fetched
good prices, and, feeling flush, he
bought a nice piece of cloth to have
made into a suit of clothes.
But, alas! on his homeward way he
lost it, a happening which annoyed
Mrs. Turmut very much.
Full of the grievance, she told the
vicar about it next day, blaming her
husband's carelessness for the loss.
A week later the vicar met Tur
"Good morning, Mr, Turmut," said
the good man. "Have you heard any
thing about your cloth?"
Turmut smiled sadly.
"Yes," he said, solemnly and mourn
fully, yet philosophically, "I have
morning, noon and night!"

Albert J. Naugle, son of Mr. and
Mrs. J. W. Naugle of this city had
some harrowing experiences during
the recent trouble in Mexico City.
Mr. Naugle is employed there as chief
clerk by L. Pearson and Son, English
contractors. He roomed in the Y.
M. C. A. and at the start of the trou
ble was forced to flee the building.
When his parents learned that the
Y. M. C. A. had been fired upon, they
immediately wired him and receiving
no reply, wired Ambassador Wilson.
On Feb. 18, they received word that
he was safe in a suburb of Mexico
City. Last week, Mrs. Naugle receiv
ed the following letter which was
written February 20.
The cut on page 4 shows the Y. M.
C. A. as it looked before it was fired
"I surely had a time of it during
the terrific battle pulled off here in
the city. I am back to work this
morning and find so much to do that I
don't know where to start. Our,
office was closed for ten days. We were
not able to send cables until a cable
office was established in the American
embassy. It would take a book to
tell of what we have been through.
Y. M. C. A. Shot to Pieces.
"The Y. M. C. A., in which Pringle
(his roomate) and I lived, is simply
shot to pieces. It was a six story
building covering half a block and
built of steel and concrete. It was
unfortunate in being in the very con
ter of the fighting being only one
block from the Arsenal where Felix
Diaz and his forces had their strong
"On the second day of fighting the
Diaz soldiers drove us out and ran
in their cannon, rapid fire guns and
several hundred soldiers making the
Y. M. C. A. a regular fort. Although
I tried to get some of my personal be
longings out of my room, I was un
successful. All I have left in the
world is just what I have on my
back as when the Federals opened
fire on the Y. M. C. A. half an hour
after I left, they riddled it with shells,
solid shot, rifle and machine gun
"Many of the rooms caught on fire.
The soldiers stationed in the Y. M. C.
A. looted it pretty well before the
fight so al lthe boys, including Pringle
lost everything they had. Pringle
had been in Tampico for a couple of
weeks and was lucky in having two
suit cases full of clothes with him.
Slept on the Floor.
"The minute the trouble started,
I went out to Brigg*s house, which is
in the American colony about five
minutes from the Y. M. C. A. by street
car, and as he has two little babies, I
knew he would need me. We stayed
in his house two days until the fight
ing got too near and then left it for
another on the outskirts of town. Fin
ally when the bullets came too thick,
we escaped to Tacubaya, a suburb of
Mexico City. We all slept on the
floor for ten nights and nearly froze
to death as it gets very cold here
"You could never believe the extent
of the damage done here In the city
beautiful buildings shot to pieces,
etc. A conservative estimate on the
number of dead is placed at between
1,500 and 2,000 but no one will ever
know just how many. Several
Americans were killed and wounded,
some through exposing themselves
from curiosity and others being
caught in the line of fire. Of course
their deaths were accidental. There
is absolutely no non-American feel
ing here. On the contrary, I know
there is a very kindly feeling because
of the way the Americans acted to
wards the wounded Mexicans and
those In distress.
