Of Interest to Women
By Winona Evans Reeve*.
A abort time ago Dr. E.
comb had a vers© printed in
church, calendar, the import of which
was that church goers should be
more mindful about speaking to each
other after church, and particularly
to strangers. The verse brought to
mind the experience that a Keokuk
woman and her little girl had in the
(First Presbyterian church of Bur
lington a year or more ago. She was
starting on a western Journey one
Sunday and had to wait over in Bur
lington between trains, and being a
Presbyterian, she went to the chuich
of that denomination. The usher
who met her at the door, said: "Are
you a stranger in this church?" and
she explained whence she had come
and why and was shown to a very
comfortably located pew. In a few
moments a man and a woman came
into the same pew and as the service
had not begun, the woman said, "Are
you a stranger here And again the
Keokuk woman told whence she had
come. At the close of the service,
going down the aisle a number of
people stopped to shake hands and
express their pleasure at seeing her
in the church. Of course she knew
Mr. Storer whom most Keokuk peo
ple know, and who is an institution
in the First Presbyterian church of
Burlington he Introduced her to the
minister who stood at the door. Pass
ing out through the-vestibule, several
other people shook hands and final
ly they made their way to a cafe for
dinner. The head waiter took them
to a table where two women were
already seated. As soon as the order
for dinner was given, the older of the
two women said, "I saw you in our
church this morning, are you a strang
er in the city?"
When the Keokuk woman went to
the cashier's desk to pay her cheek, a
rather elderly man. came "p and said,
"I was so pleased to see you in our
church this morning. We hope you
will come again." The train they were
to take did not leave until the middle
of the afternoon, so they decided to
take a car to Crapo park. Not know
ing what car of those passing a cer
tain corner to board, they asked a
man who stood there waiting also for
a car. He answered the question
and then said: "We were pleased to
see you in our church this morning."
When they arrived at the park, a
man stood near the gate, who had
with him two or three little children.
As the Keokuk woman and her little
girl passed them, be said: "Maybe
your little girl would like to see the
swans they are over to your right.
I saw you in church this morning
worship with them.
A few years ago three Keokuk girls
were on board a steamer crossing tSe
Atlantic, and sat at the same table
with Andrew Carnegie. When they
•were introduced to him, they said
that they were from Keokuk, Iowa,
where his bridge across the Missis
sippi Is located. He said in a mysti
fied sort of way: "Why, do I own a
bridge at Keokuk?" It Is to be sup
posed that he would not need his
memory refreshed on the subject this
year, since so great an amount has
been spent on remodeling the bridge.

The Woman's Journal, published in
Boston, the official organ of the Na
tional Equal Suffrage association, in
its Issue of December 9, published an
account of the experiences of the
women who presented themselves for
registration preceding the presiden
tial election. It is held that women
who have voted in one state can not
under the provisions of the consti
tution of the United States be dis
franchised by moving into a non-suf
frage state. The following is one
of the incidents related: An edu
cated woman of rather unusual busi
ness ability who had voted in another
state asked for registration in an
Iowa town. She was able to qualify
under the requirements of the federal
law and the state law, she was neith
er a felon nor an idiot, but she was
a woman and was refused on that
ground. While she and the witness
who accompanied her were present
ing her claim to the registration
board, a colored man came in to
register and the board asked the
women to be seated until they should
register this man. The womefi sat
down anxious at least to observe
how it was done.
The man was sworn after the usual
mumbled fashion. They asked his
name he knew that and gave it, and
it was recorded. They asked his
street and number he didn't know
that but explained where he lived
and they got out the city directory
and hunted it up and wrote down the
street and number. They asked him
how long he had been a citizen of the
state and he answered forty-three

forty-three years.' One of the reg
istration Judges said, "Didn't you ever
vote any place else?" and he said,
"Ob, yes, up to three years ago I was
a votln' In Hannibal." So they cut
forty years off of four of bis answers
and asked him to sign his name. He
said, "I can't write, you'll have to
sign for me." So a man who couldn't'
even answer the questions put to him,
except that he knew his own name,
passed out of the building a qualified
voter. That incident didn't happen
a thousand miles from Keokuk either.
When Mischa Elman met with an
automobile accident recently in
which he was Injured, the dispatches
in the newspapers were more than
a news item to many Keokuk people
because during his short stay here he
made more than acquaintances, he
made friends. Going over to Chicago

The causes of this state of affairs
