The meeting wis then given over to a memorial hour with tributes In memory of Laura Moore of Rarnnt, who for 22 years was secretary of the association, nnd many others. The tributes were from L. F.

Eaton of Bar ton Landing, Miss Mary N, Chase of An dover, N. II., nnd Henry B. Blackwell of Boston, Mas-!. Following a musical selection, Miss Ellz-i S. Eaton of Barton landing pa tented an address on "The Kind of Beings Denied Their Political Privileges," which was listened to with great Interest by tho momlmrs present. The answering of ques tions from the question box occupied the remainder of the session until adjourn ment at four o'clock. EVLNING SESSION. In the evening a large number gathered it the Unitarian Church to hear the Row Anna H. Shaw, president of the National American Woman Suffrage association. MIks Sha.w Is a forceful speaker and has Waited many countries, gathering much aiaterlal for her discourses. The Bov. F. I). Penney offered prayer ind Miss Leila B. Estes rendered a vocal filo, after which Henry B. Hlaekwell of Boston read tho report of tho comtnltteo jn resolutions. The resolutions expressed pleasure over tho good showing made for tho woman suffrage bill in the last Lefrlslature; re joiced in the continued good results of woman suffrage in the States of Wyoming, Colorado, Utah nnij Idaho, nnd In several foreign countries; declared that tho equal participation of women and men Is essential to a happy home, r refined society, a Christian Church and a republican State; declared that Vermont f-hould lead the less fortunate Stotes of New England In applying the principles of Its declaration of Independmce to Its women citizens; recommended tho forma tion of a committee In every town of the State to secure State representatives and senators pledged to work -ami vote for a la.w enabling women to vote In municipal and presidential elections; paid tribute to tho memory W Miss Laura Moore; favored the establishment of an Interna tional court of arbitration to make future wars unnecessary; and extended thanks to those who aided the association in Its meeting. Tho resolution were adopted and after a duot by tho Misses Estes and Holmes, the Rev, Anna II. Shaw spoke on "Tho New Democratic Ideal." Times are continually changing, Mrs. Bhaw sojd, but there Is difficulty In making the people bellave that the world ought to bo governed any dif ferently than formerly. They look back into the past and see where no women have participated In governing tho people and think for that reason thnt things ought never to be different. But If we rend the history of the an cient republics we will nae that opin ions arc continually changing. A re public, Aho continued, Is a form of government by which Its representa tives are elected by tho people. Tho representatives In Vermont are elected by men, who nrn only a portion nnd not a wholo of the people. The Fnlted States is not a republic, the speaker said until Its representa tives aro cleeted by tho wholo people, nnd at tlr.t time only will it attain tho dignity of a republic. Rome and Greece were not nearly as good repub lics as we live in to-day nnd tho thought never occurred to thoso an cients that tho day would comj when every man, whether ho lived In an In sane nsylum or not, could participate in the government. All theso things show progress, oven If It Is slow pro gress. Stop by step, Instead of n re public, wo have eomo morn and mora Into what constitutes a democracy. Some women, tho speaker continued, havo a distinctive nbhorence against voting. If no womnn entered a college until all tho rest of the women in tho land wanted liar to go there, thoro never would havo been a woman with an education, a woman physician or n womnn preacher. Mrs. Shaw said that It was easier to se cure womnn suffrago in a monarchlal form of government than In a republic because in tho former countries the wom en haI only to appeal to n chosen body of men, one legislative body, Instead of to tho whole class of people, which In cluded good men, bad men and men Influ enced by political machines and corpora tlvo bodies. She told of tho legislative body In Fin land and how tho women In that country stood for Parliament and were elected. Bhe said that tho woman president of the Servant GlrlR' union was In Parliament nnd sat beside a lady lawmaker, who was a peer. Sho told of tho corrupt political Influ ences In JVjrtland, Ore., and how thn sa loons used money to defeat woman suf frage. Sho said that every Chlnuman voted against tho suffrage because they wero paid for H nnd that every loafer helped to defeat tho suffrago because tho A TONIC AND SPECIFIC HOW DR. WILLIAMS' PINK PILLS RESTORE LOST STRENGTH. A Doctor's Proscription, Not Cure all, They HavaOno Purposoto Make FWch, Red Blood. Gonoral debility is doe to impure blood. Its causes aro worry, overwork, failure of tho body to regain its health after a sevc.ro sickness, lack of nourish ment from a disordered digestion, or some drain upon tho body, nil of wliioli result In thinning the blood, preventing it from carrying health and nourishment to the tissues' of the borlv. Tho way to cure it is to build up the blood and enable tho various organs to perform their functions. Mr. John V. Wiltlauis, of Oil Lincoln St.. Ajudorsou, Ind., who is in the boot and shoe business, says ; "In 18971 was taken sick with typhoid fever, which left me oompletoly run down. I went baok to work beforo I entirely recovered njy strength and the closo confinement of tho store was too much for mv weak, ened body. I did not give up as I should havo done, hut kept nt my work, al though I suffered a great deal from eick headaches and pnins in the back. The sick headaches came on me about every ton or twelve days and the dootors said they wero caused from mv eyes. My stomach was weak, anpotuo poor and complexion sallow. I had night Hweats, which so weakened me, that I had little interest in my work. "I tried several doctors but got no bettor and remained in this condition until I road about Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and started to tako them. I got m much relief from tho first few boxe that I used them until I was entirely cured. I am perfectly well now, but '1 think I should have been a weak man for many years, if I had not used the pills." Dr. Williams' Pink Pills make rich, red l)!f)od, enabling it to carry life and strength to the weak nerves and other tissues of the body. They aro u specific for such blood diseases as anamiln, rheumatism, the after-effects of tho grip and fevers, and for such nervous diseases as dizziness, sick he.adaches, neuralgia, and havo accomplished miraculous results oven in partial paralysis and locomotor ataxia. A valuable booklet, "Diseases of the Blood," containing full information about blood diseases and their treatment will be sent free upon request. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are sold bv all druggists, or will be sent, postpaid, on receipt of price, of) cents per box ;ix boxes $2 50, by tho Dr. Williams Medicino Company, Sclieucctadv, N. saloon keepers were prodding them. The speaker closed with saying that she hojed the time would come when women would be represented in the Ver mont legislative bodies. WHIP BEHIND. The boy delights to steal a rldo By hanging on the rear. Ho swings between the muddy wheels And twirls his thumb at fear. But those less agile than himself, Mnllclously Inclined, f Soon turn his laughter Into tears By calling. "Whip behind." Just so the man who catches on, And rises to the top, Too quickly learns less lucky friends Would like to see him drop. Ho finds, alas! the laurel crown With thorns Is often twined, And hears below him still the mean And mocking "Whip behind." The hearts of few are big enough To honestly rejoice When others get a lift from Fate, ' So hark! the spiteful voice. It follows us along tho road We travel with mankind, And works confusion to our joy By crying, "Whip behind." We all of us are hanging on The coach of Father Time, Delightful In Its rapid pace With recklessness sublime. But If we tumble ofT, behold! ' Our sudden change of mind Wo, too, tako up the chorus then And echo, "Whip behind." Minna Irving In Leslie's Weekly. THE STOEY TELLER, NOT SO ARDENT. H. G. Wells Is perhaps not so ardent a socialist as has been suppose.. Here is a story which displays good sens on his part as well as an acquaintance with the famous anecdote of the apple core: On his late visit to the United States he was one of the guests nt a Boston club one evonlng. and found that he was to f-lgn the register Immediately beneath the signature of Jack London, who, it Is si.ld, had signed with a flourlMi, "Tours for the Revolution." THE DIFFERENCE. A newspaper man having asked Ellhu Root how long he thought the American occupation of Cuba would last, got tho following story in reply: A kindergarten teacher asked a class of boys: "Have you a warm coat?" "Yes," was tho reply. "Can you take off your warm coat?" "Yes." 'Can a bear take off his warm coat?" "No." "Why cannot the bear tako off his warm coat?" " 'Cause Ood only knows whero the but tons arc!" Philadelphia Record. COLLEGE YELL. O, Henry, tho author, vouches for On following: An effeminate young man daintily placed two cents on a drug store countor and asked tho clerk for a stnmp. The clerk toro one off nnd slid It over to him. The young man drew an envelope from his pocket. "Would you mind licking It for mc and placing It on here?" ho lisped. "Sure," said tho clerk, as he started to stamp the letter, "Oh, say!" cautioned the young man In great alarm, "Not that way, I beg of you. Kindly place tho stamp with the top toward the outer edge of tho en vclope," "Sure," said the obliging clerk. "But what In thunder's that for?" "Why you see," confided tho youth blushlngly, "I'm a student in the Cos mopolitan Correspondence school, and that's college yell," Everybody's, THE STRENUOUS LIFE.

(Continued from 11th rage.) Moral Fiber Needed. Oh, that today we were ran do of the moral fiber out of which the founders of our government were made! They were ready to dare and to brave all for righteousness and justice'! sake. Wben Samuel Adams was arousing public sentiment to resist the tyranny of the British government the repre sentatives of King George tried to brlbo hltn to dosbit They offered him at one time nn annual pension of 10,- 000 for life. Ho rejected It with scorn. Then they offered him official prefer ment. That he also rejected. Then General Gage sent him word that U be persisted in his traitorous work he BhouJd bo arrested and tried and sen tenced to death, but If be would sur render tho interests of Massachusetts wealth and position should be his. The great American patriot's answer to the king's meeengor was: "Sir, I have long since made my pcaco with the King of kings. Go back and tell your master that no personal consideration shall Induce me to abandon tho righteous cause of my country." So may It be with us. May we make our peace wjth the King of kings nnd hew to tho mark. May we let tho chips fly as they will, but hew to the mark. Oh, cowardly, recreant, fearful, trembling political trimmer, canst thou not seo that Paul la pleading with theo today as he pleaded with Felix? Do right, no matter what personal dangers threaten. Do right nlwnys. But, as I watch Felix nud Drusllla trembling under the denunciations of Paul, suddenly I &eo tho tears begin to glisten In their eyes. I see them bury their faces in their hands and shake with grief. Then Instead of a bitter Invective I hear Paul's voice as soft and rippling as the mountnln brook. At times he seems to be whis pering as low as tho sighing winds. 1 come nenrer to hear. Then I nsk: "What Is it, Paul? Why are this guilty man and this guilty woman weeping? Have you been able to find any sympathetic chord of affection throbbing In their breasts?" "Oh, yes," answers Paul. "Even Fells and Drusllla have listened to the higher calls of love In their past lives. Even the most vile of men and the most corrupt of women have tho germ seeds of gospel love In their lives if you can only find them." Is not Paul's state ment true? Can we not find the germ seeds of a pure lovo even nuiong the most corrupt of soclnl outcasts? Aroused to Work. Because men and women scorn our pleas and turn deaf ears to our mes sages Is no reason why they can not bo brought to Chtlst If we only appeal to them In the right way. Rev. Dr. Justin Evans tells us that rorae years ago some workmen wove making an excavatjon In Victoria park, London. Suddenly ttlc wails caved In and the workmen were imprlrop.ed in the ditch and threatened with suffocation Amons the crowds of curlordly seekers which gathered around there wag one innn who n'.ootl loni-.ing on an ll.stlossly as most cf the me:i who were standing about. Suddenly a woman called him by nnme and cried: "Man, why don't you get to work? Do you not know your brother 13 down there In thnt ditch?" With thnt the mr.n threw off hh coat and went frantically to ori io save hi:; brother. Family affection stirred him. Thus ecry man and womnn can be drawn to work for Christ if we only know upon what chord of love to play, an that man was roupt-l from lethargic curiosity into an i-itciso energy by tho call of n DrBmrx bend "WEU!

I bonder what appeal of lovo Paul made .trben ho was pleading for Jesus Cbrlat beforo Felix anil Drusllla. I wonder If this beautiful woman ever had a golden haired little girl or boy by her first husband? i wonder If she had over pillowed hor darling's bead upon her breast and gently lullabled her to sleep In the evening hour. I wonder If, after sho bad been wooed Into the land of sin by Felix, she had turnod her back upon her babies and left thorn be hind when nhe loft her first husband? I wonder If In the midnight hour some times she heard those babies calling to hor when she awoke with a start? Then I wonder If off In the distance she saw tholr white baby hands beck oning and sho heard tho little voices calling: "Mother, mother! Are you not coming back to me, mother? I am your baby. Will you not como back to me?" Yes, I have sometimes wondered If when Paul preached Jesus Christ to Drusllla be did not turn and say, "Mother, wilt thou not give tby heart to Josus for the babies' sake?" But I ctmaot close this sermon with out asking myself Just otto more ques tion. I wonder If Paul's martyrdom In Home had anything to do wUh this re fusal of Felix to let Paul go free? I wonder If, when Paul was carried to Homo, Caesar never examined Into his case at all? But when tho Caesar was asked, "Rliall Paul be beheaded?" he merely said' "Well, If Governor Felix would not let him go free he must be guilty. Lot him die." And I some times wonder, If we refuse Christ to day, If them will not be some Caesar living tho":ii!d.i of miles away from us who will he led to reject our Christ merely be anso we aro rejecting him now. It Is an awful thing to think about what Is go'nu to happen after we are dead. Theie Is u beautiru! story told by Captain Murnamara of the Ninth MasKachii-iotta Infantry that after the first day's battle of Gettysburg the sol diers, wllh empty haversacks, had to lie down tn tileep with nothing to cat While the ' :"".t irmy was renting for tho next t'.ay's c.irmi-e o.no of the boyr. of bis comi my, more hungry than the rest and un ih!o to flecp. rose and wen? out to seek foorl among the (lead.

TUB ISRAEL PUTNAy nAZOTt. (From tho New York Sun.) The most unpopular man In Greenwich, Conn,, to-day is unquestionably ono Isaac L. Mead, who has brought down on him self the contempt of Putnam Hill chap te. daughters of tho American Hevolu tion, by doubting tho authenticity of tho Israel Putnam razor, that famous blado which tradition says wos found at tho fn.t of tho hill down which the old hero rodo pellmell, coattalls flying nnd razor ' hand, In his Immortal escape from the redcoats of King Goorge. Old Put was a fine flguro of a innn, with his faco all lathered and flro In his ryn. Tho razor slipped from his grasp In tho descent of tho hill Piitmnn Hill chapter sticks to the story that he urged his horse down a flight of steps, but Mead, the iconoclast had It from his father, who w.ia told by his grand-father, thnt the general did not take the steps, but, Hltn an ordinary mnn In haste, dashed over tho brow of the hill. As for tho razor, Moa4 argues that thn general was probably not shaving at all when surprised by Oenral Tryon's men, for he had attended n dance nt Pecksland t.io night before, and In a day when tho practice was to shave once a week ho must have gone to the party with a smooth faco. And Mend adds Insult to In- Jury by maintaining that Putnam never was a patron of the Knapp tavern, now the Putnam cottage, bemuse Knapp was a rascally Tory and trnltorous loyalist. If we were the daughters of Putnam Hill chapter we should stand by tho steps nnd claim the razor. Sons nnd daughters of the revolution must rallv for the old myths, which are Just nn goo, history as the presumptions of peoplo with logical minds and meddling dis positions. We shall next be hearing that Old Put did not go Into the enve after tho sho wolf In Pomfret and slay her, nn- that the savages never tied him to the stake nt Wood Creek to burn him to death, VTp cannot afford to part with a single Inspiring achievement in the enreer of this robust soldier of the revolu tion. DiSTiN'GVisnrcr) artists as sign , PAINTBRS. (From the Westminster Gazette.) Col. Healy, C. M. G., who we under stand his painted the sign of the Swan Inn at Itnyne, Eex. has had some very distinguished predecessors In this humble field of art. Mr. Firth, the veteran It. A., has a very clear ni'mory of painting the signboard for a I-mrnshlrr Inn called the Pilgrim. "My friend, Augustus Kgg," he says, "painted one side of the sign nnd I on the other. F.gg's pilgrim was knocking at one side of the sign, on which a door was limned; on the reverse my pilgrim was leaving tho hostelry refresh id, thankfully casting his eyes heaven ward." Many years ago two other famous academicians, Messrs. Islle and Hodgson while on a fishing expedition nt War-grave-on-Thames devoted their leisure to repainting the signboard of the George and Dragon, the hostelry at which they wore staying, Hodgson picturing the saint refreshing himself from a t.angard of the landlady's best "October." "Old Crcme" once exercised his skill on the sign of tho Sawyers' Inn at Norj iwtch: George Morland was the artist or a cricketers' sign at Chertsey, nnd, we believe, a small Surrey inn boasts a clever painting of the (ox and Pelican by Walter Crane.

THE JAPANESE SITUATION. Interesting Review of Principal I'hnses of Hie Trouble. (From tho Doston Transcript.) Translated Into terms of the political vernacular of the western world, tho latest phnjse of our relations with Japan appears to bo simply this: Thn Japanese opposition Is pushing tho Issue to the front, denouncing tho ministry as either uninterested or Incompetent, nnd the Japnnoso ambassador nt Washington n unoo.nl to the duties of his post, Do wo not rocall a similar situation In the United States n.lut twenty year ago, when the administration m.i denounced nt mass meetings because It did not twist tho British lion's tall until ho howled ngaln for laying his paw on naturalized American citizens who In Ireland par ticipated In the more militant operations of tho home rule agitation? Was not James RushcII Lowell, ono of thn truest Americans, hold up to scorn on theso oc casions for not beltiR nblo to sen hw tho s.-uno agitator could bo an Irishman In tho United SJntes and an American in Ireland? Substituting Viscount Aokl for Lowell, and assigning tho roll of his critics to the Japanese Jingoes, the sltua.tlon repeats Itsolf on another stage, with a locally colored setting. And Viscount Aokl, after tho manner of trained diplomatist", Is not to he hurried Into delivering ultimatums 'lecnuse tho Japnneyn opposition tells him ho ought to deliver them, thereby completing tho resemblance. IIo is wait ing for tho repirt of tho United States district attorney to whom the state de partment has referred tho claim of Japan ese whoso restaurants and bntahhouses were wre-ckod by the San Francisco mob during thn recent strlko riot. Doubtless ho will do Ms utmost to secure compen sation for the sufferers who were by treaty nnd by our own la.ws entitled to protection, falling to receive which they havo Just claim to some measuro of reparation for their destroyed property. They are In precisely the same situation as any other aliens domiciled here who oro wronged by nn American mob which has got beyond the control of tho local authorities. Whother the San Francisco rioters dis criminated against the Japanese, or windows whother they impartially smash ed all windows tht were easy targets, re mains to be seen, but the United States will probably have a bill to settle. It has settle. many such bills, notably for Italians mistreated In the south, most nations being willing to take a money compensation for wrongs done their sub jects. Our dual system of government, by wrtich the nation has to father the consequences of the Inefficiency or mis deeds of local authorities over whom It has no actual control, exposes to Just such experiences as we shall run these risks nnd even graver ones until aliens are placed by law under the protection of the federal courts. The government of Japan realizing the constitutional difficul ties under which our federal authorities lo.bor In protecting foreigners, and con lldent of reparation where It can be shown to bo deserved, is deliberate In Its methods, to the intense disgust of Japan ese Jlng oeslooklng for a taking Issue.
