Of all the foolish Idiosyncrcies of .of woman, that of taking the field against suffrage is the most pitiably rsttle-brained. If this higli-browed class don't believe in woman's voice outside the front yard, why don't they use this privilege. Since num bers of men never vote it is evident suffrage has never been compulsory. Anyway this obstructive element could be in their own crowd, one lot removed from the back yard where, if any danger comes up, they can have the protection of the sturdy old gander.

The Epworth League, under the leadership of Miss Catherine Dahnke, has become one of the most enjoyable and profitable services of the Metho dist Church. Many of the older peo ple are going and being benefited by listening to the special music, read ing and talks of the boys and girls. Sunday night they accepted the in vitation of Brother Armstrong to habit, i meet in the main auditorium and fill the regular preaching hour, which service was much appreciated by a large audience. The subject, "The Prophets Call to the Young," taken from Joel, was led by the President, who, after making a few appropriate remarks on the scripture, spoke of youth as a time for training and of the things youth could do in the King's service. Miss Juno Reynolds gave a splendid reading, "The Value of a Smile," followed by a solo by Miss Kate Robinson. Miss Dahnke then spoke of how the young had an influence, often winning even older ones to the Lord, which thought was illustrated by a beautiful story read by Mrs. Henry Little. Miss Dahnke then spoke of how God did not ex clude people from working and testi fying at all times, . and then we listened to a heart-searching ques tion in a beautiful poem, "Are You Shining for Jesus?" read by Miss Mary Lee Rodgersr We had the pleasure of having with us Miss Burch, of Kenton, who so beautifully rendered a touching reading from "Les Miserables." " - Brother Arm strong" then made a few remarks after which the service closed with the league benediction to meet again Sunday at 6:15 p. m. in the Sunday school room with Miss Kate Robin son leader. We regret the Illness of one of our members, Mr. Young, first vice president, whose beautiful solos are always so highly appreciated. We trust that he and Mrs. Young may be with us soon. A cordial in vitation is extended to all services. "Come with us and we will do thee good," , ; Gen. Thompson, I would not be will ing to do anything to cause these investigations to cease, for whatever may be the result of this investiga tion to me personally, I hope the State may profit by the same . It is proper to state here that the State has not entirely neglected these oth er places in their investigations with reference to law enforcement, and as the representatives of Memphis seem to be able to locate without difficulty law ..violations in other cities, we hope to profit by such investigations. I do not know, nor do I charge, that these investigators represent any of the interested parties in the Mem phis litigation, nor do I care. I shall be glad to have the benefit of their investigations, and if conditions are as assigned by the Mayor, I promise that these places shall not be ignored by the representatives of the State. STANDS BY PLEDGES. ' "If the attempt to carry out the platform pledges made on every stump during my campaign, and an honest effort to make good the sol emn promise made to the people Just at that moment preceding the taking of the oath of office as Governor, must result in political death, then I shall not hesitate to hasten the de mise; for I would rather suffer po litical annihilation than to survive on broken promises and unfulfilled pledges. So it occurs to me that to call a halt now would mean but a surrender of the same principle that has made this litigation needful and necessary, and I am not willing to do that. If It be true that this litiga tion is disturbing conditions in Mem phis or any other way proving dam aging to her business progre'ss, or detrimental to the interests of her citizens, I regret it, and assure you I would be glad to do anything I could consistently to remedy or miti gate these conditions. But I respect fully submit that the State's officials acting under their oath of office, should not be censured or con demned because of the conditions which make it imperative they should act. I have absolute confi dence in the ability of the Memphis officials to enforce the law and regret that because of local sentiment they have not succeeded in doing so. It is also to be regretted that so many of the good citizens have so far with held from these officials their co operation and support along lines of law enforcement and I am glad to i know that this assistance and co operation is the purpose and inten tion of your organization. Memphis is a great city with a splendid citi zenship. They are progressive; they do things; but Memphis is only a part of a great State; to be sure she is a very large and important part of a very great State, but notwithstand ing this fact that the good citizens of Memphis must know that local public sentiment cannot make or re peal laws, and that when the regu larly elected representative's of the State speak a law into existence that law has the stamp of constituted authority, and must be obeyed whether It meets the Individual ideas of particular localities or not. "With assurances of high regard for you and those associated with you I am earnestly hoping that your splendid organization will continue the fight for law enforcement until the officials will discharge their every Those of Middle Age Especially.
