"Don't you think that the girls
of Washington are pretty? asked
his hostess of a young man on a
visit to the national capital from
Oregon, an equal suffrage state.
"Pretty, yes," he answered,
"but don't they ever talk of any

do young folks
"Water power," promptly re
plied the young man, "water
power and natural resources."
One of the fine results of equal
suffrage is that it leads women to
take a more intelligent interest in
public affairs. Two visits to
Denver were made by Miss Hel
Dudley, an experienced
settlement worker of Boston, one
before and one after women
were given the ballot. She said
she was struck by the change in
the tone of women's conversa
tion. On her first visit some of
her friends seemed interested on
ly in bonnets and gossip. On her
second visit, the very same wo
men were all eagerly discussing
the new city charter. A leading
Denver book-seller said that he
sold more books on political
economy within eif ht months aft
hr women were enfranchised than
he had sold in fifteen years be
fore. The Chicago Public Li
brary has had to set aside a spec
ial room for the use of the many
women who come to read up on
civics and city government, as a
direct result of their admission to
the franchise.
The twelfth biennial conven
tion of the General Federation of
Women's Clubs recently held at
Chicago, was a credit to the Unit
ed States and to women the
world over. Unquestionably the
largest representative gathering
of organized women ever held, it
was also the grer.test with respect
the quality of the proceedings.
For the first time in the history
of the organization its national
self-dependent, with no desire for
fixclusiveness or isolation, but
with pardonable and commend
able pride in the intelligence and
ability developed within itself
to manage its own affairs A

and represented in Chicago dur
ing this splendid gathering need
entertain no dcubts as to its fu
The influence of the twelfth
biennial will be felt for all time
to come, not only in this country
or on this continent, but through
out the world. The assertion of
woman's rights to equality is now
backed by the wives and mothers
of a great nation. No longer may
it justly be claimed that women
as a whole do not desire to seek
enfranchisement. The minority
in opposition to a step that will at
once cleanse and strengthen the
electorate and insure the perpet
uation of democracy is inconsider
able. Of no lesser importance is
the assertion, backed by millions
of women, in and out of the fed
eration, that the homes of the
United States have the right to
protect themselves against blight
What man has failed to do
alone, man and women working
hand-in-hand are going to ac
complish for humanity. For there
is going to be no sex alignment,
there is going to be no sex di
vision what there is going to be
and there is the note of the Chi
cago convention, is such unity of
purpose and action between the
right thinking men and women of
this republic as will assure and

just relationships now rapidly

Reports are current through
out the state that the woman's
Suffrage Amendment is not to be
voted upon until two years hence.

President Anna Shaw thinks it
very odd that, with so many col
ors to choose from, the anti- suff
ragists should have selected the
red of socialism and the black
flag of piracy. Why not take the
black and blue of the British

propriate for the United States,
where they have been beaten so
many times? Or, better still,
why not the pure white of inno
cence, for they must be extreme

that under all the colors in the
chromatic scale they can march
to anything but total defeat.—

Stock Feeding
On the Farm
Some Reasons Advanced by 1.
O. Donnell Why Stock Should
Be Kept on the Farm.
"Farmers should bear in mind
that stock feeding on the farm
has two highly important advan
tages over straight cropping of
the soil, viz., it furnishes a ready
market for the crops produced
on the farm and it furnishes a
means of building up and main
taining the fertility of the soil.
"1 recently read a report of an
important meeting of banking
men and one of the speakers. 1
think a banker from Minnesota,
stated that in his community the

nly farmer who can get a loan
er who habitually has cow man
ure on his boots. There is more
to that than a catchy phrase. It
represents realization by the
bankers and 'business men that
the farmer who does not keep
stock of some kind is a poor fin
ancial risk and the farmer who

who markets his crops through
ivestock or livestock products
and then cares for and places the
manure on his land is the farm
er who is getting ahead.
"No matter how small the
faitn, some kind of stock should
be fed. If the land is too high
priced to profitably breed and
raise stock in every community,
cattle, sheep, hogs or even chick
ens or turkeys can be bought as
feeders at market prices and a
good profit made by putting
them in shape for market.

"On every farm there is a cer
tain amount of pasture and for
age which can be utilized only
by feeding stock. The refuse
from gardens and orchards will
furnish considerable hog feed if
properly utilized. What is left
on grain fields after harvest will
go a long way toward fattening
several hogs. The pasture along
banks and in fence corners of an
ordinary 40-acre farm will keep
three milch cows during the sum
mer months. Chicken3 and tur
keys will rustle their faed from
what would otherwise be waste.
"The work horses on the farm
might just as well be good brood
mares and each raise a colt every
year. This can be arranged so
as not to interfere with the reg

shcrt time the farmer will have
a team of horses to sell each

been fattened on root crops and
