The long fight of women for the right to vote on ail questions of gov ernment has at last ripened into a live reality. Indications are already plainly ap parent that there will follow in the wake of the adoption of the Ninfe- iteenth Amdndment to the national l [ Constitution, new impositions of civic | responsibility and radical departures | [ from practices which have operated to a denial oi the franchise to a con |siderable portion of the national citi zenry. “Grandfather clause,” “permanent poll,” and all of the political devices j j used by the “white South” to mini- j mize the voting strength of our Race I will be cast automatically into the of political misuse by the unequivocal provisions of the suf frage amendment. For not only will ' approximately three million Negro ■ women be added to the voting ele ments of the nation, but the Negro man will be strengthened in his posi tion as a citizen of the national and j state commonwealths. But there also comes to us a grave j realization of the increased response i bilities that have come to us in the 1 meantime. The intelligent Negro j women must take a more command : ing place in the social orders of the ' j land. There can be no shirking or pandering of the instinct for political j gain in any direction. o NATIONAL" HEALTH WEEK - ” I I The situation of national health make a public question of deep con | cern for all the elements of the peo- ! pie in our common land. Our race i should have a sincere interest in this matter. Lowest in the economic scale, smallest in social significance and weakest in physical power, it becomes -imperative that we take advantage of i any opportunity which will enable us ! to increase our store of general knowledge and thereby add strength and vision to the social efficiency of our kind. National Health Week will soon be with us. Whatever of program shall i be provided for that occasion must ! be eagerly scanned in an effort to , provide every facility for the people j at large to get a clear understanding ,of health as it aff.utls the enure na- : tion. I We are one-tenth of the nation. If lone-tenth of 'he nation is in ignorance of the laws that serve to maintain health, it means Hiat the nation will finally succumb to the ravages of pes tilence and disease. Black or white ! has nothing to do with the matter except where criminal intention aims to keep any of the elements in igno rance of the laws that provide the re lations of improved social conditions. This is why the more intelligent members of the race should busy themselves to the end that every in dividual of the group shall be made aware of the significance and import ance of the coming Health Week. Health Is our biggest asset. Without it, we ilTust fade from the face of the earth. With health we can survive to take a worthy place among the strong peoples of the earth. Remem ber Health Week and Keep It Holy.

Singleton as vice president, Mrs. S. R. Suttles as secre tary, Mrs. M. A. Handy, as assistant secretary, Mrs. E. Armstrong, as chaplain, and Mrs. Ida Tutt as one of the directors. o QUALIFIED She (romantically)—The man I ; marry must be willing to go through fire for me. He—Then I’m the man. The boss has fired me for telephoning you so often. o SENSE AND SOUND How oft you find the boisterous hoys Into oblivion sinking! The brass band makes the biggest noise, But doesn't do the thinking. o SUFFICIENT REASON Mrs. Scalds —And just think of what a loving couple they were when they got married. I wonder what caused them to quarrel so. Mrs. Gossiphe—l found out today. She plays a better game of golf than he does. o HIS CHANCE FOR A DIG “John,” asked his wife, who was writing to one of her married friends, “which is proper to say, ‘I differ from you’ or ‘I differ with you?'” “Tell her you differ from her. She lets her husband have a part of his salary to buy cigars and such things.” o PERSONAL PETS “Every man is entitled to his opin ion.” “Yes,” replied Senator Sorghum; “the same as a man is entitled to a composite breed of dog. It may be nothing to be proud of, but it’s his if he wants to hold on to it.” o GAY YOUNG AMERICA “I don’t care for the young man. ■Suppose you are making a mistake in marrying him?” “Well, if I am, you’ll supply me with a divorce fund, won’t you, dear old popsy?” CITY OF PURPLE DREAMS JSM— r CHAPTER 111. v » . »- The first person besides the news paper men to visit Fitfhugh was Es ther Strom. He shook hands with her through the iron grating of his cell. “Welcome!” he cried gayly. “But how’d you know?” “I came ns soon as I saw this,” she 1 replied, taking a newspaper from un- i der her cloak and holding it between j the bars to him. His eye caught a 1 front-page headline: “MADMAN RUNS AMUCK!” Turning the page he found a group : of snapshots of himself in diverse at titudes. "Here’s progressive journalism 1” he laughed, slapping the paper with the back of his hand. “These things were taken less than two hours ago. Not bad work, either,” He regarded them' critically. He gloried In the uotoriety. ! She pressed closer to the bars, nud there was a -troubled expression on j her face. “We must get you out of this some way; and you mustn’t treat j It so much ns a joke, for it’s not. I’ve : a friend who’s a lawyer. I’ll send him to you. I’ll manage to pay him some- 1 how, some time.” “But why?” he asked.* “Why bother j about me at all? I’m nothing to you.” j “I’ll send him right away,” she promised. “Goodby.” She pressed his hand and was gone. Barely an hour after Esther’s de parture the guard let Into the cell a rotund, sleek-looking man who Intro duced himself by printed card as “Roger Merton, attorney and coun selor-at-law, Ashland block, Chicago, hours nine to five.” He sat down be side his client on the foul bunk, and behind his plump hand gave a genteel little cough. “My boy,” he said, “you have only one defense. It’s insanity—don’t get excited 1” Fitzhugh laughed. “Do I look ex- i cited?” he asked easily, and added, “or insane?” ♦ “You’re not Insane. Nobody said you were. But for a while you've got to act Insane. It's your only hope, “You’ve Got to Act Insane." and I’m pretty sure you’re equal tc the acting. If you plead crazy—and act and talk and look crazy (It’ll be easy for you)—it’s more than likely you'll get off lightly. It’s your only chance.' Absolutely the only one. I’m not saying it’s a fat one or a soft one. I only say It’s your only one. Good day 1” • •••••• The case occupied little time. The prisoner was adjudged insane and committed to the Dunning insane asy lum until declared cured. Two stal wart officers, neither of whom was as muscular as he, escorted him to the street. • •••••• Upon Fitzhugh's arrival at Dun ’ nlng he was taken to the superintend ent’s office, and there, questioned about his family, gave the same ficti tious replies that had satisfied the po lice. Next he was examined by a physician. It was the second time he had enacted the part of a lunatic, and his personation must have been done I with some success, for Ids “disease” ! was diagnosed, and he was classified and assigned to a ward. Afteg the customary routine of hnthing and donning the regulation garb he had leisure to sit down and plan his escape. This seemed so ridiculously simple that he almost regretted there need be nothing spedtnculnr about It, that there was no necessity for over powering a guard or breaking bars, or for any other kind of heroics. While entering the grounds he htd kept his eyes open, with the result that he had a rough mental picture of Dunning’s topography, and after the first night he was positive he would be free before the dawn of another day. He lay awake until broad daylight, hoping the next night would be a cloudy one, listening to the unearthly sounds that came at intervals from the violent wards—and thinking, think ing. He thought mostly of the future, and the more he thought of it the more wide awake he became. Sleep was out of the question. Before noon that day came Esther. She had brought him a basket of ed ibles, and as she placed it on a table beside him he detected in her manner a disquieting suggestion of constraint But her first words were commonplace enough. “How are you?” sb^asked. “Oh, about as well as 1 look, I sap* pose.” “I never saw yon looking better," she admiringly observed, , J'Xflfl tana* remember yoa^haSila’l MEN’S 110 M THREE PIECE SUITS TAILORED - TO - MEASURE NO LESS THAN NO MORE THAN $32.50 $42.50 FIT AND WORKMANSHIP GUARANTEED “Give Your Pocketbook' a Chance” and Investigate These Clothes PALACE TAILORING CO. 419 East Washington St. * OPEN EVENINGS CONTRARY ACT “I am not surprised to hear she is an advanced spiritualist.
