NEW YORK.—Upon being interview ed at his apartment in the Colonial Hotel, Mr. Willard said: "Yes, I have a chemist with me to study the value. dreams of getting rich would have become nightmares of failure but for the' kindliness of' a. a neighbor. Tnia Jad was thp speaker of the evening. 'VJke all aKeokulc people -who go away, fie comes back to us," Mrs. Ayres said. Mr. .Thorne admitted that he was tne boy. iHe said he had gone around to the old Chatham Square church, in front of which he had sold the lemonade, and ha'd looked on the old banister?,' down which he had tumbled as a boy. Tne late Smith Hanalll was the man who saved him from bankruptcy, he said. The inci dent happened twenty-eight years ago. The speaker said that 'his date for a lecture here had been made some five months or more ago, and had been changed from time to time. •He' had agreed, he said, to speak on various live issues, and one of these was'suffrage! ?*," Problems Before Each Generation Each generation, Mr. Thol-ne said faces one or two great problems, the solving .of -which distinguishes this generation from others. The estab lishment of democracy, for instance, was the distinguishing mark for the eighteenth century, while the estab lishment of the union in America at least was the ifaark of the nine teenth. "Are we too close to the present period to distinguish what question stands out most? Is our vision dis torted because .we are too close?" The world today is witnessing the transfer of industry from the in dividual to the Corporation, the speaker. deolared. This thing-, has challenged the attention of the think ing man of today. What investiga tions of factory conditions have dis closed was touched upon and the speaker pointed out the danger of a generation qf wage slaves. The time is at hand, he said, for the tak- 1 amlnation for life insurance. I "was astonished to find him with' the blood pressure of a boy of 20 and as full of vigor, vim and vitality as a young .. man In fact a young man' he really 4 was, notwithstanding his age. The se cret he said was taking iron—nuxated iron had filled him with renewed life. At 80 he was in bad health at 46 caro "worn and nearly all in. Now at 50 a miracle of vitality and his face beam ing with the buoyancy of youth. As I have said a hundred times over, iron is the greatest of all strength builders. I If people would only throw away pat lent medicines and nauseous concpc tions and take simple ,nuxated iron, 1 am convinced that the lives of thous ands of persons might be saved, who i..' now die every year from pneumonia, grippe, consumption, kidney, liver and heart trouble, etc. The real and true if, cause which started their diseases was nothing more nor less than a weakened condition brougfit on by lack of iron in the blood. Iron is absolute ly necessary to enable your blood to change food intjo^living tissue.

Mr. Thorne explained how he first became interested In the freight rate problem. He related his experiences in Kansas with the Standard Oil com pany and the railroads. He followed this with a recital of the passage of an act in Iowa, and told how an inci dent connected with this discrimina tion bill made him interested in the regulation of organized business. The tariff has been the bone of contention for a century in this coun try, yet the railroads tax has been many times as great as the federal government's revenues. Wants: to be Regulated.' The speaker reviewed the efforts of some of the corporations to obtain certain legislation. "Big business wants to be regulated," the 'speaker contended. "It means that competi tion can be strangled. The public clamor can. be quieted and charges can be advanced. We have just scratched the surface in the mat ter of regulation. You and I are witnessing an industrial revolution and it is up to ua to provide some sane methods of regulation." The three most prominent remedies proposed are government ownership, control and regulation, but the speaker thought that what might be remedy for one cause would! not fit another, and he urged the striking of a working balance, and casting the remedy to fit the problem. "Our problem Is a practical one. "We must find a workable basis. The regulation of business is the great question for the present generation," he declared. Appeal fsr Equal Suffrage. Coming from a line of preachers, Mr. Thorne said he would take a text for his discussion of the suf frage question. 'His text was from a document which was signed on a memorable day in '76, which over threw a kingdom and which has since overthrown kingdoms. His text was from the Declaration of In dependence and'was this: "We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal that they are endowed by the Creator -with cer tain unalienable rlghtB that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men. deriving their Just pow ers from the consent of the govern ed." Each new appeal to this principal comes as a shock, the speaker said. Today it is proposed to apply the document to women. In these early days of the twentieth century, the minority rules, and the majority neven will rule until women get to vote, he said. 'What are the signs of the times? They point to the defeat of the issue in New York and Pennsylvania. Why, "V SOME, MA-NUAX A I I XfJCr MOOEtS' Thousands of manual training stu dents in the schools of the country ire now busy earning vacation money building bird houses. Tl^ey^ are jelling them to park commissions, •emetery associations and bird lovers penerally for the reception of the feathered songsters, now beginning: lo arrive in various cities after their Wirter's sojourn in the South. The cemetery association at Omaha, Neb., has purchased fifty of the box es made by the high school boys of that city, using the houses in con verting the cemetary into a bird sanctuary. Many other cemetery as sociations are doinj? the same as a result of the Audubon societies campaign to convert burial places into bird refuges. "In summer, birds ar.i most nu merous where it is Dossible/or them THE DAILY GATE CITY this is not the first defeat. Every big thing that is done comoa -through fighting and difficulties. But the days of fighting are past. The progres sive wing of the republican party has indorsed equal suffrage." The, speaker then read indorse ments of the project from members of the conservative or stalwart sec tion. Woman's Viewpoint Best. "Woman's life, the life of wife and mother, give her a valuable view point," he said. "It is natural that women should be first in pure food agitation, child labor movements and sweat shop agitation. They are for clean cities, and all that helps to up lift the morals of their children. TUe reflex action on the men is good. Now, only a few women take interest in the issues of the day. With the women voting, it will lead to a better and wider discussion of issues around the family council, and will lead to wiser and better conclusions on the part of the men. Women at the ballot box will raise the Integ rity of public servants. Women have rights, many of them have estates, many earn their own living. It is simple justioe that they should have some expression in the laws of the land." In England at one time it was "ecessary for a man to own a donkey in order to vote. If his donkey died, or he had none, then he couldn't vote. This leads to the helief that it was the donkey and not the man that controlled the voting. Mr. Thorne said. "And," he added, "I believe there's a few samples of this animal voting today in this country." The speaker attacked the fanciful creation of hot air and lace to which eI remists have tried to make of women of the present day. He at tacked their theories of this butterfly who a few years ago was a slave but who is now painted as an airy little piece of humanity who must be put on a pedestal. "Must she abandon all pratical things and chirp and sing for man he asked. WOuld Push Away Pedestal. "She must share in the world's work. Knock the pedestal out from under her, let her get her feet on solid ground. Put her on an equal ity with you. Let her be what she Is, a human being, respected and hon ored. In oave days, she was man's slave. We have elevated her to the other extreme. Let us welcome her as a fellow human being,, endowed •by the Maker with the same intellect and power. It would 'be a splendid act of chivalry, of knightly courtesy and of true wisdom to welcome her as a citizen in the government of the new world." The illustrations, stories and argu ments which the speaker used in his suffrage talk evoked frequent ap plause. Iowa Molding Men. "Iowa is a great state with a great future," Mr. Thorne declared, In closing. He drew a little contrast between the ideals of the east where knowledge, wealth, the possession of great grandfathers are considered essentials, and the west where action and ability counts most. "Here in the west you can listen to the music of God's factory," he said, "where you are molding and forming the fin est type of mankind on earth and on the shoulders of you people must fall the task of wrestling with and solv ing the problems of the day." A number of the officers and direc tors of the Civic league were seated on the platform last evening. They were Mrs. Winona E. Reeves. Miss Caroline Baldwin, Mrs. J. J. Ayres, Miss Nettie Younker, Miss Rachael Roberts and Miss Ldda Gordon Howell. Pleasantries at Solon, Iowa. •Cedar Rapids Republican: At Sol on, Iowa, they had a peculiar contro versy pending. A woman declared that she did not like the Economist, the name of the local paper, because SCHOOL BOYS MAKE MONEY SELLING BIRD HOUSES 3 to find the best places to construct nests," said T.

Feminine Boots. Omaha World-tHerald: Things have come to such a pass that if a man with true appreciation of the beauti ful is to remain at large he must wear blinders while traversing the public thoroughfares. If he doesn't. chances are mighty good that he will be grabbed by a gendarme as a mash er. The reason for all this is the latest style in feminine footwear, the high and gaudy laced boot, topped by a liberal expanse of silk hosiery, the en tire picture being brought to a tardy concluKion by skirts which will never collect microbes from the sidewalks unless the woarer falls down. These boots are mighty expensive, but they save a good deal in head wear, since nobody looks at a girl's face any more. It isn't fashionable. The way the feminine elite caparison their lower extremities these days makes it easily possible for them to wear a coal scuttle on their heads without attracting any undue com-1 ment.
