Stove Economy
One of the easiest methods of
saving money is in using a good
stove. A good stove burns less
coal for the required amount of
heat. A good stove keeps the
home warm in the coldest weather
thus preventing colds and sickness
thereby saving doctors' bills.

The N. D. Press Ass'n met at

the Commercial Club had made
extensive preparations for en

present had a most enjoyable
An excellent program cover
ing subjects of importance to
the members of the association
had been prepared, but unfor
tunately several who were on the
program could not reach Bis
marck. An unexpected treat
was a short talk by the famous
traveler, newspaper writer and
lecturer, Pere Strom me.
A great amount of interest

attending the association meet

the finest collection of Indian
curios is on exhibition.
We also bad a short visit with
Rep. R. A. Lathrop and Senator
Chas. Ellingson, and secured
some first-hand information re

the legislature.
Taken as a whole we feel well
repaid for the trouble and ex

capital under the present weath

In 1914 woman suffrage was
defeated in this state the down
fall of the measure is supposed
to have been caused by the fact
that the legislative body re
quired a majority of all votes
At the next session of the leg
islature the measure to again
submit it to the voters was killed
in the senate by the booze ele
ment, because they knew that if
they sent it to the house that
they would pass it since it orig
inated there. But the suffrage
workers of the state were not
dismayed and as soon as the 1917
lawmaking body had assembled
they were on hand with a bill
that, if passed, would give the
women of the state the right to
vote for presidential electors,
county surveyors, county con
stables, and for all officiers of
cities, villages and towns, except
police magistrates and city jus
tices of the peace, and upon all
questions or propositions sub
mitted to a vote of the electors
of such municipalities or other
political divisions of this state.
Also for the following township
officers: Township clerk, as
sessor, treasurer, overseer of
highways and constables and
may also participate and vote in
all annual and special township
meetings in the township in
which such election shall be.
This last section is important
and will be of especial interest
to all property holders.
Section three provides that
separate ballot boxes shall be
provided for the women, with
separate ballots containing only
the list of officers and measures
upon which the women may

drawn up by M. Pollock, of
Fargo, at the request of the
state president of fcbe"W. T.
U., and was presented by Mr.
Needless to say the measure
passed and our state has joined
the ranks of women suffrage,
the greatest political reform of
the age.
It is the same as was passed
in Illinois a few years ago, with
which the women of that state
have gotten such effective re
suits, though fortunately the
North Dakota women won't have
to clean out the saloons with
their ballot.
.Full suffrage was not given on
account of the restrictions of
our constition and it will be ne
cessary to have the constitution
changed before this could be
done legally, unless the federal
amendment is adopted in the U.
S. congress before this is ac
complished. However, a bill to
change the constitution to the
effect that women shall have full
suffrage was recently passed in
the legislature and if also passed
by the 1919 legislathre will be
submitted to the male voters in
The senate, house and govern

Jan. 22, in the presence of a few
of the prominent suffrage work
ers of the state. The quill pens
used for the signing in the house

organizations for suffrage, name
ly, the W. C. T. U. and the Votes

About Constipation
Certain articles of diet tend to check
movements of the bowels. The most
common of these are cheese, tea and
boiled milk. On the other hand, raw
fruits, especially apples and bananas,
also graham bread and whole wheat
bread promote a movement of the
bowels. When the bowels are badly
constipated, however, the sure way is
to take one or two of Chamberlain'i
Tablets immediately after supper

settled on his lungs and he had terri

Geologists Say Bones Discovered In
Florida Deposit Are 125,000
Years Old.
Chicago.—Human beings inhabited
the North American continent more
than 125,000 years ago, according to
the findings of E. H. Sellards, state
geologist of Florida, and Prof. Oliver
P. Hay, who made public results of a
study of fossil remains discovered in
Florida some months ago. Their opin
ion, however, is not fully concurred
in by other scientists.
Human bones intermingled with
those of the mastodon, saber-tooth
tiger and other extinct animals, were
found in the deposit at Vero, Fla., and
thither six geologists and anthropolo
gists made their way immediately to
study the find. Their report wl'.l be
made in the January-February (1917)
Issue of the Journal of Geology. Ad
vance sheets quote Mr, Sellard us say
"The study of the fossils of this stra
tum, although not yet completed, has
brought to light a considerable number
of extinct species which suggest the
reference of the deposit to the Pleisto
cene period. This is the oldest deposit
from which human remains have evet
been taken."
Doctor Hay, who is research associ
ate of the Carnegie institution oi
Washington, expresses similar views
but four other scientists, whose ar
ticles will appear in the Journal ol
Geology, are skeptical. They are Prof.
R. T. Chamberlain of the University ol
Chicago, Thomas Wayland Vauglian oi
the United States geological survey
Dr. Ales Ilrdlicka of the United States
National museum, and Prof. Georgt
Grant McCurdy of Yale. They are noi
convinced that the human race existcc
ou this continent at so early a period.
Miss Lolita Armour, only child ol
Mr. and Mrs. Ogden Armour of Chi
cago, recently made her debut In Chi
cago society.
Miss Armour is one of the mosl
charming of this winter's debutantes.
It is only a few years ago that it was
almost conceded that she would be a
cripple for life. The fame of the
noted German surgeon, Doctor Koch,
having reached this country, J. Og
den Armour, the little Miss Lolita's fa
ther, decided after having heard of the
marvelous bloodless operations per
formed by the famous surgeon, tc
bring him here from Berlin. That his
faith in the physician was well placed
is shown now when Miss Armour,
a healthy, vivacious young society bud,
fond of all outdoor sports, Is about to
make her debut. Her addition to the
ranks of this season's debutantes is
looked forward to with pleasure.
Johns Hopkins Hospital Tests Open
Air Remedy With Success in
Number of Cases.
Baltimore, Md.—A new method ol
treating serious burns that involves
the use of air and sunlight has been
put into practice at Johns Hopkins hos*
pital, and already in a number of cases
has been successful.
"Nature cures" have been recognized
as the most practicable in a rapidly
increasing list of ailments. The gen
eral idea back of all these methods is
that nature, with a fair chance, wilj
do more for the sick body than will
drugs or surgery.
In treating burns a small part of the
Injured surface is exposed directly to
the sun and air out of doors. The best
results are obtained in temperate
weather, when the patient can lie at
ease for hours under the direct rays
of the sun and the influence of the air.
In colder weather only more indirect
exposure is possible, and then the re
results are not rapid.
As a result of the treatment skin
grafting will not have to be used in a
number of cases. The effect of the air
and sunlight cure is to keep alive
much of the burned tissue, and in time
this tissue grows out over the burned
Bell Heard Forty Miles.
Santa Barbara, Cal.—The same elec
tric power employed In ringing bells
has transmitted sound through space
40 miles. In experiments by Dr. H.
B. ftrringer Cox, the ringing of an
alarm clock at Los Olives has been
faintly recorded at his station outside
the city limits. It Is wireless and the
power used is the ordinary dry bat
tery, which Dp. Cox Invented several
fears ago.
