Who sits in his "uneasy" chair,
With blazing eyes and rampant hair,
And makes the very paste-pot swear?
The Editor.
Who chases down some ftgreat idea"
And molds, on subjects far and near,
The nation's thought?
Who writes of "truth" with grave in

tells it, too, with honest bent
Save where his circulation's meant?
... The Editor.
Who thinks bis pencil small and round
Can turn the planet upside down
Like lever strong?
Who claims that he "has come to stay,"
And with some new plan tires away
And "saves the cpuntry" every day? t
The Editor.
Who with profanity defines
All critics' views as "senile whines
Of reptile sheets?".
Who writes in leaded lines that burn
Of "party claims" and "duty stern,"
And bids the bolters all return? x

Who pulls his coat off in the fight
For "justice, liberty and right," ,
And Sunday ball?
Who nails the "robber" tariff billf
And shouts "more money" with a will,
Yet fails bis flabby purse to fill?

has been a member of the Missionary
Baptist Church and has always desired
to see the churcb prosper and grow and
has done all in her power to make it
prosperous. She gladly contributed to
the . various causes and loved the un
converted, endeavoring to lead them to
the "Lamb of of God that taketb away
the sins of the world." As the sun in
its brightness is by day, so was the life
of this devoted Christian and gentle
mother. For in her heart there was
but the kindest and tenderest feeling for
all and the highest regard for their
happiness. Into her home she wcl
corned the weary way-worn, traveler, as
well as those blest with prosperity.
We could speak at length upon the
virtues of this noble woman of God and
then could only mention but few of the
many good . deeds she did, but this we
can say, lives were cheered, hearts glad
dened, and the world bettered by her
glorious life. No woman in the com
munity was better loved and4 none
would be missed more than she. The
writer has been her pastor for almost
two years and is grieved to know that
she cannot meet with us again at the
earthly sanctuary, but is rejoiced to
know that' we shall meet at the "Great
White Throne," where Jesus is and
where no sorrow will ever come.
Mrs. Holomon is survived by one
sister, Mrs. Annie Jones, and by seven
children, Misses Bessie and Alma Holo

C. T. Jones,'" Mrs. Nannie Omar and
Mrs. Henry Dew. ' We sorrow to loose
this good woman from our presence
but God knows best and may we see it
thus. To the children who are thus
bereaved, the writer extends bis pro
foundest sympathy and urges that you
live as the one who has departed lived
so mat nnaiiy, wuen Jesus comes in
bis glory, we may all "be caught up to
meet bim in the air, " and be carried
home to sorrow no more. May God
bless and comfort the much grieved

and in a written opinion he held that it
was the duty ofhe commission to make
the adoption.

Makes Declaration With Emphasis
, to Visiting Delegation.
Washington, June 27. Speaker Clark
to-day emphatically told a delegation of
women from the National American
Woman's Suffrage Association that
woman suffrage is as inevitable as the
rising of to-morrow's sun."
Fof'one thousand years," said the
speaker, men have been trying to run
the world and some think that the v
have made a bad mess of it. I hope
that when you women run it you'll im
prove on it. I think woman suffrage
is inevitable. '' The only question you
have to consider is how to most expedi
ttously get what you are after. You
can get it quicker by the States than by
Congress. . ; - t . " ,
T "In some places there is a great preju
dice against woman euffrage. You want
to remember one thing, that if you lose
the fight you are out for years. When
ever the subject comes up for a vote in
Missouri I am going to vote for woman
uffrage. This is not because all women
ire fitted to vote, and I may add 'that
I would not like to say that all men are
fitted to vote. If you ever do vote, and
I think it is coming certainly, I hope
you will vote for the best principles and
the best men. '.. '
The speaker was addressing a group
of women from thirty-eight States who
had presented 300 petitions for woman
suffrage in, the form of resolutions
adopted by suffrage organizations and
rpass meetings at the time of the nation
wide demonstration of May 2. There
were present tJongressraen'dttlo"-
crats, Republicans and Progressives, to
whom petitions were also addressod.
These included Representatives Smith
of New York, Taylor of Colorado.
Baker of Calfornia, Fitzhenry. O'Hair
and Foster, of Illinois, Democrats;
Mondell of Wyoming, Campbell ,of
Kansas, Republicans; Chandler of New
York, .Walter of Pennsylvania, Bryan
of Washington, Progressives.
The woman suffrage leaders in the
delegation included Dr. Anna Howard
Shaw, Miss Jane Addams and Mrs. An
toinette Funk, of Chicago; Mrs. Helen
A. Gardener, Mrs. Glenna Smith Tin-
nin and Mrs. Baymond B. Morgan, of
Marshall's reception.
Vice-President Marshall also received
the suffragettes and later petitions to
Senators were left at the vice-president's
The suffragists requested that all be
laid before Congress before July8. The
petitions, which the committee-explained
were strictly non-partisan, asked Con
gress for legislation which will "insure
women equal political rights with
men" but did not advocate adoption of
any particular pending measure. The
suffrage association officers particularly
emphasized that point and said they
wished it clearly understood that they
were opposed to militant methods and
were not fighting any party but are
seeking aid for the suffrage cause from
individuals of very political faith. . .
When the Senate met, numerous pe
titions presented by the suffrage dele
gations were filed by Senators 8moot.
