PREDICTS SUFFRAGE Wife of Celebrated Negro Educator Says Women Should Pre pare Themselves—Declares Immodest Fashions Are Bound to Disappear—Inveighs Against Turkey Trot. ' -r PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 25.—1That it will only be a short time before wom »n suffrage Is adopted by all the States and that women must now prepare themselves to exercise the right Intelligently when it comes, is the belief of Mrs. Booker T. Wash ington, president of the National As sociation of Colored Women, and wife of the noted negro educator. Mrs. Washington is also a prominent mem ber of many associations of white ■women throughout the country. Mrs. Washington, in an interview before addressing the Association of Negro Women in this city yesterday, declared that the importance of the work being done by women is being more widely recognized every day. She believes that in many cases men are not so well qualified as wom en to till positions where sympathy and encouragement are more essen tial than a stern dispensation of jus tice. Mrs. Washington spoke in the First African Baptist Church, Six teenth and Christian streets. In speaking of woman suffrafe, Mrs. Washington said: ‘‘It seems to me that universal suf frage is coming and that .its progress Is not being blocked by the intelli gent members of the communities. The moro advanced men agree that it I is only n question of a short time before we women will be granted the vote. But It will be necessary for us to study and prepare ourselves, so that we may bo able Intelligently to exorcise the right when it does come. I believe that most of us are now doing that.” At a mention of the styles prevail ing among the women of the period, Mrs. Washnlgton smiled and said: “I ant not r.eally an authority oh these advanced styles. We Southern ers are very conservative and do not • readily adopt Innovations. Still, think I could predict that the extreme! styles that are now being worn will not last long Too many of our best women are opposed to them to expect their permanent adoption. "At Tuskegee we try to impress the importance of modesty in dress, for T think there is a sad lack of It to day. The lack of the old-time cour tesy In men is largely due to ex tremes, both in dress and In every thing else that women have adopted." She had not a kind word to say fot the turkey trot and its numerous progeny. "These dances are frankly immoral,” she said, “and the most liberal-minded people are now de claiming against them. They ought to be prohibited altogether and a safer dance substituted.” CROOK ESCAPES TWICE IN A SINGLE AFTERNOON [Slieclnl to the Newark Star.! PATERSON, N.

Said the father to Judge Sabath: “I think he should stop sowing wild oats. He drinks a great deal. He comes home and acts like a young colt. Ho Is out every night carousing, calling on women, and I can't do anything with him'' £ Would You Buy a Motor Car without Ball Bearings? Or a racing sulky? Or a sewing machine? Or a watch without jewels? The L. C. Smith & Bros. Typewriter Co. has worked out the principle of ball bearings in the L. C. Smith & Bros, typewriter. Every typebsr is ball bearing; the carriage and capital shift travel on ball bearings and wherever friction would naturally develop, it is lessened to the vanish ing point by ball bearings. This means, tn a typewriter, greater speed, closer adjust ments and consequently greater accuracy and neater type written work. This is only one or the reasons why the L. C. Smith & Bros, typewriter is worth more money than any other type writer ever made. We can show you by actual demonstration how you can increase the efficiency of your stenographer and save yourself time and money .
