The Climaxl year $1
The Climax is in receipt of an inter
esting paper on woman suirrasje, prepar
ed and read by Mrs. Eli B. Evans at a
recent meeting of the Bay View, Mo,
Club. Mrs. Evans was formerly Miss
Emily Chenault, of this place, and is a
sister of Judire J. C Chenault and lion.
D. M. Chenault. She is being recogniz
ed in her home community as quite an
essayist and the following article from
her pen will be read with interest by her
many old friends here:
Madam President and Ladies: I think
women should be allowed to vote. I
believe in r government of the people,
for the people and by the people; and
notwithstanding the diversity of opinion
on the subject, I honestly think that wo
men are people
Of course there are various opinions
concerning women. The Turk locks
her in when he leaves home. The Hin
du, the Chinese and others have their
views. Some think she has no soul,
some that she has no mind and tome
that she has no rights. And even in the
"land of the free and the home of the
brave" she has been classed politically
with idiots and criminals.
My belief in woman's right to the bal
lot is not founded on statistics. To me
it seems simply a matter of justice and
fair dealing. The Y colonies needed no
statistics to convince them that "taxa
tion without representation" was unjust
neither do we need statistics to prove
to us the same fact. Thomas Jefferson
had no statistics to prove to him that all
men are created free and equal neither
do we require statistics to prove to us
that woman is entitled to a fair deal.
"Oil, but," some say, "woman has no
business in politics."
"She is the home-maker." Very true.
I tiome. What does the welfare cf one's
own hearth side amount to unless there
be a strong and secure national govern
ment back of it?
"But a woman is represented by her
husband," thuy tell us. Is she really?
That might be true if every woman had
a husband, and husbands and wives al
ways agreed on vital subjects. Anyway
what is the matter with a woman's
brain that she should depend even on
her husband to do her thinking and vot
ing? "She who faces death by torture for
ach life beneath her breast" has an in
tensity of interest in the luture welfare
of that life, which, it seems, would ren
der her especially fitted to show far
sightedness and wisdom in law-making.
Kipling says: "The female oT the spe
cies is more deadly than the male." He
could have added with equal truth that
she is also more faithful, more loving,
more self sacrificing in other words,
more intense, whatever the emotion
whether it be love or hatred. Her ab
sorbing devotion to her own, he takes as
proof that she couldn't be just to others.
But are not women wise enough to know
that their own are a part of the nation
and that all bland or fall together? That
the greatest good for the greatest num
ber is the thing best for their own?
Man needed woman that was why
God made her. He is not complete
without her. He needs her brains to see
and think that which according to oa
ture he cannot see nor think. No man
can make a home without a woman's
assistance; neither can he manage to the
best advantage that larger home his
country until women realize how all
imporiknt to themselves and their pos
terity is the subject of good government.
"But women are too busy with home
duties," .they tell us, ' to have time to
vole." If she is so closely confined as
ail that, I say, give her a holiday! On
election day let her go to the polls and
vole, while the men, if necessary, slat
at home and rock the cradles and rule
the world!
It was predicted that higher educa
tion would ruin women, just as it is to
day that politics will lower her standard,
her influence and her usefulness. 1
think that she who bears the race is wor
thy of greater confidence.
She has proved a blessing almost al
ways and everywhere. Surely she will
not fail in home-making"' in the hirger
sense of the word.
No one will deny that many of our
most needed reforms in politics have
come through the influence of woman.
Theu since she has benetited the gov
ernment, having only an echo in its af
fairs, why fear to give her a voice'.'

Rooster Goes Ltin.
Some unusual things som-'imes ha-
pen. A well-inown farmer il his wife,
living about three miles tn m here, rose
tolerably early one morni a recently and
hitching their horse to the bugy, drove
to town for some purpose. On the way
in Mrs. Farmer noticed wh.f seemed to
be a. rattling noise on the bug ry top and
remark d that she thought it must be
sleeting. The rattling continued, yet no
sleet could be seen. When they arrived
in town and got out of the buggy it was
daylight and the lady looked toward the
buggy top and gasped. "Why, Charlie,
there is my fine while rooster!" Hehad
ridden all the way to town on top of the
buggy. Flemiugsburg Gazette.
