Who Is It that has the strongest hold on the people, who commands their greatest confi dence, compels their greatest grati tude, possesses the power, to exert the greatest Influence for good, has the broadest, firmest grasp on the destiny of the Amercan people? Perhaps there ,is no question re quiring so much discrimination as this one, no question allowing brood er latitude for personal opinion and suggestion. When you consider the many different lines of endeavor in which women have accomplished ERICA'S MOST rtivi V " i 7r r?A; -r' - WHAT LEADING MEN AND WOMEN SAY. MRS.

SHERIFF JULIUS HARBURGER I should say Mrs. Carrie Chap man Catt, the suffrage leader, is our most Influential woman today. great good, you gather some idea of the difficulty in apportioning the credit for being the most influential woman. Also, it Is a matter of environment, this deciding who is the greatest fem inine benefactor, and therefore the most influential. If you are In a hos pital you instinctively decide it Is the woman who out of her wealth endow ed such institutions; If you are hun gry, it la the woman who. feeds the poor. Again, you may think that the most influential woman In the United States Is your wife once Bhe has set ber mind on anything. JANE ADDAMS CHOICE. To determine the 'question, The Press asked a doxen well known New York men and women to tell who, In their opinion, was the most Influ ential woman, and to state why. The concensus of opinion was that she la Jwe Addama, the good aa maritan of Hull house, in Chicago. Without an Instant's hesitation, three well known New York women, when the question was asked them, Jald the ignally great honor at the feet of the woman who taught the poor of Chicago th. difference between right and wrong. SherlJT Julius Harburger handed the- wreath to a New York woman. Mrt Carrie Chapman Catt. one of the strongest expounder of suffrage, ex plaining in his characteristic manner that bad Harriet Beecber Stowe, au thor fX,Uncle Tom's Cabin," been alive, the credit should have belonged to her. The Rev. Dr. Charles A. Eaton, John D. Rockefeller's pastor, said the most Influential woman was that wonderful impersonal being, the American mother. MRS. HARRIMAN SECOND. The Rev. Dr. John P. Peters of St. Michael's church, was of the opin ion that It was impossible to se lect the one woman" with the most influence. This is what Mrs. Clarence Burns, president of the Little Mothers' Aid association, said: "The most Influential woman In America today is Jane Addams. Next to her I would put Mrs. J. Borden Harriman of New York, Miss Ad dams primarily for the every-day good of life. Her mission is to bring help to the weak, food to the hungry, hope to the hopeless, courage to the fearing and the blessing of right liv ing to all people. Others strive to ac complish similar works of good, but Jane Addams. through a rare mingling of personality and untiring energy, succeeds where others fail. Unques tionably she is the woman with the greatest influence for good in this country, if not in the world. ' "Mrs. J. Borden Harriman of New York, a society woman who has found time to see the suffering of others and has the will to aid them, is another who commands a wide influence along humanitarian lines. Her work in get ting milk for the babies of the poor will not soon be forgotten by a good many thousand mothers of the poor." PICKS "EVERYDAY MOTHER." This is the way the Rev. Dr. Charles A. Eaton expressed his opln- INFLUENTIAL WOMEN fib. JBotden Ifkrri7ttart. ion as to who is the most Influential woman: "She Is no Individual. She is that impersonal woman known as the ev eryday mother. She is the most In fluential, and always .will be, because she is at the seat of power of the na tionbecause, day by day, month by month, she is molding our future men and women. What Influence could be stronger, further reaching, than that which forges the destiny of the boys and girls who, when they become men and women, shape the destiny of the world? There is but one answer to your question. The most Influential woman, and the one worthy of the greatest love and esteem, Is the un known mother." NAMES MRS. 8T0WE, "The woman who wrote 'Uncle Tom's Cabin' was the most Influential woman In America. She paved the way for the ultimate welding into a great harmonious whole the north and the south,, as was typified at the re cent gathering of the United Veterans at the Held of Gettysburg. No greater POLK COUNTY NEWS-GAZETTE, BENTON, TENNESSEE. work ronld have been dons or strong er Influences exerted thaa that exer cised by Harriet Beecher Stowe. "In her. absence I should say that Carrie Chapman Catt. the suffrage leader. Is our greatest woman today She is a marvel In her clear diction and analytical and logical thinking in her speeches. I have heard her and consider her our best public speaasr among women. The leader of a great cause such as suffrage Is destined to be is a woman commanding commen dation as exerting a wide and power ful Influence." KNOWS WHAT SHE TALKS OF. Mrs. Harriot Stanton Blatch. one c! the leaders of suffrage In New York said: "Jane Addams Is the most influen tial woman In America. She is the most Influential woman because she knows exactly what she Is talking about." Mrs. Charles Henry 4sraels. widely known as a sociological expert, also gave the tribute to Miss Addams. She said: "Jane Addams is the most'trSuea tial woman because of the feeling of trust In her which Is universal among all who have come In contact with her. There is no living soul that does not trust Jane Addams. "The reason for this trust Is her freedom from bias, her fearlessness of evil, her courage for others, her sym pathy for all. There is no woman, not alone In the United States but in the world, who can boast the Influence which is Jane Addams'." AGAIN MRS. HARRIMAN. Rosalie Gardiner JoneB, the suf frage leader, Is for Mrs. E. H. Harri man. "I can simply state that the woman to whom Davenport's book, 'Heredity In Relation to Eugenics,' is dedicated is one who has assisted in making possible the study of the science which of all others will be of inesti mable value in its influence upon the present and future generations. We have received as yet only a glimmer ing of the possibilities of the trute, but the value to the United States and the world of this woman is beyond estimate, for she furthers the work which realizes that every child has the right to be well born. She Is Mrs. E. H. Harriman." VISIT TOMB OF ST. STEPHEN Thousands of Invalids Gather Twice a Year to Implore .Intercession of. the Martyr.

After St. Stephen's martyrdom his body lay long concealed under the ruins of an old tomb at Caphargama la, 20 miles from Jerusalem. At this place, early in the fifth century, the church was served by a venerable priest named Lucian.

The priest laid the matter before the bish op of Jerusalem, who ordered him to search for the body of the first saint at the place indicated. The coffin was found and when opened, according to the chroniclers, "there came out of it such a sweet odor that no one remembered to have ever smelled anything so agreeable." A "vast multitude" had assembled, and, It is said, 73 persons present, who were afflicted with various ail ments, were immediately cured and made well again. A portion of the relics were left at Caphargamala, and the remainder taken to Jerusalem and Interred in the Church of Sion Flf teen centuries have passed since the translation and ever since the relics of the holy protomartyr have been thought to possess miraculous beating powers.

'"Mark Twain used to be a tailor and, while serving on board a schoon er, he caused the crew to mutiny and killed the captain.' "Mark Twain replied to this as fol lows: " 'Dear Editor It is quite true that I was once a sailor and that on a schooner I caused the crew to mutiny and killed the captain. But you omit ted an Important point. After killing the captain I devoured him." Hands Up.
