H leg is a list of questions Mrs. English wishes considered: "1 At what points do the women of Michigan want most to see the laws regarding women amended and strengthened? "2 Are Michigan women satlsfleil with what the law now gives them In control of their own property? "3 Are they satisfied with what the law now gives them as their rightful part of property at their husbands' death? '"4 Io they wish the law to give them greater power In making con tracts and engaging In business op their own accounts? "5 Do they think the present laws are sufficient In protecting the inter ests of a wife when deserted by her husband t Are they satisfied with the gen eral legal status of women?" The next legislature undoubtedly will IN MM of these matters brought forward. A TREAT FOR CALUMET. Those who have never seen the fly ing machine, truly the most marvelous Invention of an age where Ingenuity seems not to sftsaj at the very first boundary line of the miraculous, will have treat In store for them Sun day, when Mijdjsjay; the bird man, will lire the flrt exhibition of flying at the haurlum Driving Park that has aver been given In this city. All of oe have r-ad of the flying ma chine and Hoi wonderful accomplish ments that are being made by both the Inventors and daring a . iators. Hut realisation is not brought to its full m Moure until one has witnessed one of these product of a century of dar- in a corrif illettment To fly calmly arid if nil v on the air like a gUnt bird, to dip and turn and whirl like some sportive arjii hov erlng ovi r the water In search of prey. Is lnded an a- m pi i aliment of an age o,;i das made roor progreas than any oUi r period in the history of the world. McOoey is showing M-nself one of the heat of the men flying Kan ly has he disappointed the crowds thHt,hac floi ke 1 to wa'' )i the sensational trips through the air. Calumet and TMurlum is to hsve. at last. Its first peek at the flying ma chine, and this, too, In f a of the fact that this town nearly lost the oppor tunity of seeing a flight. on rather than to I stand on. There are sops of omission and of direct pUuation to thia and that inter cot. Not a word, for Instance, about the tariff. We ventured a guess the other dn that the trust law plank was a con tribution from the sage of Oyster Bay remarks the Milwaukee Sentinel. As president. Mr. Roosevelt repeatedly urged In his messages such amendment Of the Sherman law aa would clearly legalise combinations not In unreason able restraint of trade, and thus ob viate the need of Judge made law" by Judicial construction. The suggestion of Roosevelt author ship of the plank la capped by a sug gestion from a contemporary that mnb the insoiration came from ;...rge W p.rk.ns. Anyway, here Is the plank and w are not contending there is nothing t be said In favor of It: "Is It worse than Idle to leave the question of whether great business en terprises are legal or not merely to Ju dicial determination." anil that "indus trial corporations should by affirma tive legislative enactment be given definite rules of conduct" .V progressive" shrieking there about smashing "big business" and putting it in Jail. Why this sudden use of the soft pedal? One radical editor, disgusted with such weak tea. angrily declares that on the basis Of the plat form there is no reason why the Home Market club, the Wool trust, the Wall street gnu .! - should not "at once begin the work of raiding a La. Follettc progressive campaign fund." That may be "wrote aarkastiful." as A. Ward used to say. But the plat form serves aa an Indication that our 'prigresslve" friends are alive to the indications Of a coming wave of popu lar reaction against a brand of isdi tics that more than anything else has boon holding back the overdue busl r ess revival. As for the candidate, consider this reassuring portrait of him by the mas ter hand uf Albert B. Cummins: Senator l-i Eollette stands for legis lation which is perfectly safe and sane, notwithstanding the efforts that have been made by his enemies to discredit him as unsafe. His Judgment on great questions is reliable, and the accusa tions of being erratic and an unsafe radical are made without any founda tion whutsoeyer. His views are sound, and the intense earnestness with which he fights is the only thing that leads many to the erroneous belief that he is unsafe. W , we may presently find safe and sane Bob assailing Taft and Wicker sharn as dangerous antl-buslness radi cals! Well, all in all. this sudden moderation f "progress Iveism" Is a good sign. The country has grown tired of ghost dancing. : Suffrage Is Unsexingf Women and Contributing to the : Increase of Insanity j o By Dr. MAX G. 5CHLAPP. Psychologist, of Columbia University o 8 U FFRAGETTES ARE TO A LARGE EXTENT SEXLESS. They FAIL to RKAL1ZK tho DUTIES OF WO MANHOOD and stem to JOSE TI1K1K WOMANLY QUALITIES. In this stressful ae wo aro getting lYwor aiul fewer womanlv women. In fact, mam can hardh- lc called women at all. Thev have none of the womanly emotions, none of tho wo manly sympathies. They HUE TKL'LY SEXLESS. To bo sure, there are some who are estimable, who have broad domestic feelings, yet they are on the decrease. The only way that I Ml account for it is the AGE. We are striv ing as no nation or age has ever striven. Tho advance of the i.i-t mu uundred and twenty-tive years is UNPARAlaLRLED, and we are paying the cost. We are having more nervous wrecks and criminals than ever before. We are ceasing to be normal. That is why we have this suffrage movement. Our women are becoming ABNORMAL. How many children aro being nursed now in the old way? When you realize this one change you can appreciate the growing difference in woman. And OUR CHILDREN' ARE BUFFERING AS A RESULT. They are growing up LESS STRONG, LESS RELIANT and MORE ABNORMAL. SINCE 1870 NOT ONLY HAS THE BIRTH RATE DECREASED, BUT THERE HAS BEEN AN INCREASE OF INSANITY AND NER VOUS DISEASES AMONG THE WOMEN, SHOWING THE SEX 18 OVERBURDENED. The increased female suffrage is doing tho race harm.
