Tho first cave man who noticed that when he rubbed two sticks together the friction produced warmth, and who had the curiosity to keep on rubbing the sticks together, gave us fire. The first woman who had tho curiosity to see what would happen when you put raw meat on the fire gavo us cooking. The first man who was curious to know what lay beyond his Immediate neigh borhood blazed the trail that has led other men to the north pole. If Newton had not been curious lie would never have discovered the law of gravitation. If Jenner hadn't been cur ious he would not have found out about the circulation of tho blood. f Kulton hadn't beou curious he woud nevor have bothered his head with the wild Idea that a steamboat could be made to run up a river at a speed of four miles nn hour. If Edison wasn't one of the most curi ous men in the world wo might not be ablo to sit at home and listen to Caruswi sing out of a little box In the corner, or to speak to our friends across the con tinent over r dlnkv little wire.

Tho eruption was llko are all insatiably curious men And let it not be forgotten that the first of all these original researchers was !a womnu. It Is ou,r first mother, and I not our father, who began the investiga tion of the whyncss and the wherefore of , the things about her. and it was till 'quality that she bequeathed her sons that has sent them out to discover tho utter most parts of the world, and wrest from nature her secrets. Curiosity Ib the dividing lino between Ignorance and knowledge. Tho people who have no curiosity concerning the things about them, hut who accept every thing without comment, or question, uro Invariably those of. limited Intelligence, and who are heavy and loggy In mind. Therefore curiosity Is to be accounted unto ,lts possessors as a virtue, and not a fault. The contention that women ore more curious than men Is an allegation that cannot bp substantiated bjr fact, but "If It were true it would bo no reflection on the feminine character, and certainly no bar to their enfranchisement. Indeed, there Is no other quality that Is moro needed In voters of the present day than n large, robust curiosity in good working order. The majority of men are too busy and too much engrossed In their own business to have time to look Into public matters much, but women have moro leisure, and If they spent part of It In prying into public affairs many abusrs that now exist would be remedied. Perhaps the fear of vcmmn'H curiosity in such matters Is tho reason the ma chine politicians are the most determined opponents of womun suffrage. They are like the Janitor of thy school who. when be was asked how he liked the woman who had been elected to the school hoard, replied: "Aw, away wld her! She hadn't been on dat board a week before she wns snooping aiound In the cellar and made 'me clem it out. and me that had been hero fifteen years with never no man on the school board, even looking In at tho door!" Certainly it would do no harm If some body has the curiosity to took Into ttip records of candidates and saw that only decent men were put up to represent de cent reople. Nor would It he Inimical to Ihn welfare of the general public if n healthy curiosity was directed to finding out why the man who Is electtd on one Platform with a social promise to do curtain things forgets his obligation -is todn as he gets Into office. j It would bo a good thing to have somo iKidy curiouk as to where the monx- goes that ls niillrAn,lntai1 r,.- - . .. .. iu, nruuu pUDlle Improvements, arid why It costs the dty or the government o much more to have a Job done than It does an Indl virtual. It would bo a good thine to have somebody i urious about whv some laws are enforced and others are not, and how men holding smalt offices with small pay aro enabled to accumulate large fortunes and live like princes. Oh. there are a lot of flid.xv that It wouldn't hurt u to be curious about, und If women bring this quality into jolltlc they will fill ,4 long-felt want J'hcrell have to be seme better reason advanced against giving woman the vote than her desire to know thing.
