In one of the pockets was a-note book from which several sheets had been torn. On these sheets she wrote a letter to her relatives which was received the sam day the garments mentioned were found. She tsated iu the letter, from informa tion that has leaked out, that she was living in a troublesome world and that she was having serious thoughts as she looked towards the lake. From what has been learned of ner actions on Thursday the letter was probably written early that evening at Rock Point.

They must be taught their kinship with the heroes . of great deeds. They must be trained to value truth in the realm of science, not for its bearing on crops and trade, but for its pure beauty alone. "A materialized tuition would disap point us in our search for wealth. It would remove us from the glory of our past and blast the hope of our future. "The states ciuei concern is iran through vou some truth shall shine iri a clear light; some work shall be done with a more faithful hand; some busi ness shall be managed with a liner jus tice; some profession ; ,shal be followed with a' more " disinterested devotion; some person 'shall be loved w ith a pure affection; tome sphere of God's right eousness shall be served with a higher consecration." , REFUSE PAPER MONEY.

While in Chicago, the Vermont dele gates, in common with hundreds of th er women from all parts of the I'nited States were Toyally entertained. There were- IA23 women registered in all and at most of the meetings the auditorium was packed to the doors. A good deal of interest that centers in Chicago on the woman suffrage question haa spread throughout the country and it may be interesting to note the attiude taken on that momentous issue by the local dele gates. It will be recalled that opposi tion to the extension of the franchise to women was lost in a maelstrom of votes. Mrs. Phelps and Mrs. Smith are said to have opposed the measure, while Mrs. Shepard voted with the wing that en dorsed the equal franchise. Elsewhere in Vermont the sentiment among the dele gates is said to have been pretty well divided. Barelv a day elapsed from the time the suffrage question was briefly mentioned until it was put to vote be fore the convention for endorsement. Fye witnesses of the scene say that en thusiasm for the suffrage fairly swept the convention from its feet. What op position waa voiced had no effect what soever on the tidal wave of favorable sentiment that engulfed the auditorium. Mere man had his part in this consum mation, for a visitor at the convention observe that apparently every man who was honored with a seat in the conven tion favored equal rights at the polls. Fro-suffrage delegates as well as an tagonists of the movement were given an opportunity to see the workings of the ballot when the time came to vote for the national officers. Voting machines were used and the women were given that freedom of the polls that the ma jority at Chicago seemed so earnestly to desire. Barre delegates had once, twice and three tiipes the privilege of meeting Jan Addams at Hult House. There they were dined and shown about the Wonder ful institution that has been created by the personality of Miss Addams." RILEY-KNOX. Well Known Young People United in Marriage.
