Were they here today they could get a dollar an hour for paint ing houses, which is more than was the "scale" when they were wellding the brush. Getting time to plant those flowers we all want to see blooming when the tourists come come down in the win ter.

Such a question as that Coming from a sweet voice That sounds like" the brookwater Flowing over sonie smooth pebbles . 4r it swift courses along Close to a chestnut tree In the edge of a large wood ;ixs me most disconcertedly " Becau8e I'm no weegee board I'm not even heart-shaped Although some opine that I am. I've had all sorts of worries By answering those foolish queries, For it's a ten-to-one shot My answer would be incorrect And then the fair questioner Would sniff In three languages And declare she always knew I admired the other person; . And for a'meticulouB man To be thus sarcastically upbraided Is I'm sure you will agree Most goshawfully embarrasing Even if it is hot worse. It wculd be much nicer II the one making the call Would tell me at once, off-hand, Who was doing the talking act Because I'm going to assert I'll do no more guessing. It gets on my nerves And I'm an hour in recovering From the very severe shock In many, many, many cases. Not so very long ago I thought the voice was familiar , And thought I'd be very nice; So I said, sorter facetiously: "When you write your hubby "Tell him 'hello' for me; "I'll bet he's feeling the heat!" (I thought he was in Illinois.) "Si-i-i-r-r-r-! You should know "My husband's been dead two years!" And she "hung up" so soon That I never did find out The name of that fair widow Nor did I learn from her If her hubby was "sweating!" And I've had the same luck.

This bears ont the contention this paper has always' maintained that Southern -women have not desired the ballot. How ever, now that this condition has bean foisted upon us by the North and .West, our women should not evade the responsibility which has been placed upon them, but rather should, accept It as a duty they owe to the Slate and to humanity, to vote Intel ligently and for the public good. Par ticularly is there need now for the votes of those to whom the idea of noting has heretofre been unattrac tive these are among the best, gen tlest and most womenly of women. If these hold aloof from the polls and allow the voting privilege to be large ly monopolized by women of lower in tellectual or moral standards, their suffrage will be an unmixed evil. The good women are needed to pffset the work- of unscrupulous politicians who sre trying to qualify any and all sort 3 for their own selfish ends. Women need not get out and do any spectac ular political stunts, but every woman should quietly and intelligently study the political situation, local and na tional, and vote for the candidates and measures that seem to be for the best interests of the public-learn,-ing as their first lesson In politics, however, that the candidate who promises most and loudest is often the very one they should avoid as poison.
