Tq Ihe Editor: The present LegtfUture will bo taked to tab mit jthe qaeition of woman's iuf ffags ta the voters. I am opposed to woman suffrage and I have do pstiecoe with those who demand thejjrote for women on the gronnds tiat therb is no reason why they shottld not We bflieve that whw a lcng established eastern is abat to be changed, there should be tome good reason for the obaisge. Therefore we feel that the Jrnrdso of proof is with them to ajh0m some good reaion why thsfjshbold vote. : Qjtetof their leading advocates has said that a single fact was worth a ship load of argument. We hare yet to cee a single fso that have presented. Yet they hsvevjQooded the country with ship loads of arguments. F-r years their greatest claim has been that their vote would eud the whiskey trsffio. That was the argument . N.w let us calmly look at the facts. Of the eight dtstes that were prohibition np to . 1913 wo men voted in only one of them. That was the State of Kanias and ISMS&rs-, --th&t was prohibition before wo ttif'men votwi In Virginia" r;.. without. woman s vite went prohi ??bitibD by thirty thousand msjori 0f Inrl Colorado voted on 4-State-wide prohibition and failed tcln:1914 they voted again and it by. a little over eleven honkmnd mafritv. not enonsrh to thara: :In iha Mm a veir two bth er States where women vote, Oali- vofe ior prpninision ana. raiiea la the same year tsix counties in Kentuoky where they have many distilleries and noted for its whis key iaud where women are noted for their ;!?eauty and not for their j votes, went prohibition. Again, they claim that women would purify politics and make la wymote respected . In the State of uolorado where women vote there has existed for several months a state civil war between organized labor and State offioials, and what is woman's answer to this, the same old 'If." 'If wo men were holding offioes instead of men things would be different." They olaim that there are bet. ter laws in . States where women vote. We herewith present some laws recently enacted by Cali fornia where women vote and Ohio where they do not, a comparison will show cue to be just as good and progressive as the ether. California Workmen's compen sation act, Mother's Pension act. Rural Credits Commission to study European system, Minimum Wage act, a Blue cloud act, Red Light abatement act, law provid ing for wages being paid convicts . Ohio, A Blue Sky law, Torrents' system of land tenure, State Bank regulation with regular inspec tion, jury verdiot in civil suits by a three-fourth vote, thirty million dollars for good roads, a State Commission for regulating liquor traffic, a widows' and motheri' pension aot, a pension act for the blind, restriction on number of work hours per day for women, oonviots placed under indetermin ate sentence system. It has been the pratioe of those favoring woman fuffrage to seleot the best from States where women vote and compare them with the worst where men voie. Bui whn ther is au honest oompari- Dn there will be found that there is no aiperence. mat nriug us back to the question. 'Theu why should they." I am not one cf those that think woman is inferior to man, for know she is not, and when I hear men say women haveo.t "eense enough tc vote, then I know that man has a' any sense at all. There are many women of stronger intel lect and scundr judgement thau many m o. vet the general, aver age oi women u neither so strong or well trained in pablio matters as the average man. I do not be lieve that the present franchise it the best for the country ; on the contrary, I think that very many men at pres nt endowed' with vote for ill qualified, either in in teligence or patriotism, to use lit That some women who ha?0 Dol the vote are better qualifisd to est it than many men who have it, ja no argument for giving it to many woman who are even less fit to use t than men: I think the real question is, would , our political fabric be strengthened? would leg islation be more respected? would our public anddomestio life be enriched? I think not. Some one writirg of the "Old Fashion Mothers" has this to sa; : "Old fashion mcthers, God bless them 1 who followed us with heart and prayer, all over -the worl lived iu our lives and sorrow ourgrieis: wno anew more a patching than poetry; spoke uojoo dialect but that of love, never I preached nor wandered; made melody with their hearts and sent forth no books but living volumesf that honored their author and blessed the world." If women have a broader mil- sion now, in Heaven's nana let her fulfill it! If ihe have ought to- sing, like the daughterj0 Judah, let her sit Waters of Babel, and the world shall weep; like Miriam let her triumph-strain fljat gloriously over crashed but giant wrong, and the giant 'wrong and the world shall hear; but let triumph and lament issue, as did Oracles of old; from behind the veil that cannot be rent, the "inner temple" of sacred Home. Within should be enshrined the divinity" of the plaoe. Here, and hers only, would we find woman ; here im- kprieijnr4je, rapvteozh lrer?-J5tJi- the.lighthouse ray,, that flopnt, pure as an 'angel's pulse iojfthe night and darkness of the world, star beneath the cloud; but brightest there, warmest there, always there where Heaven did kindle it, within the preoinot, the very altar plaoe of home. It is related of Madame Lucciola, a re nowned vocalist, that she ruined a splendid voice by her efforts to imitate male singing. Many a sweet voice and gentle influence in the social harmony has been lost to the world in ihe same manner. There is nothing more potent than womac's voice if heard not in the field or the forum, bat at home. The song bird of Eastern Btory, borne, from its native isle, grew dumb and languished, seldom did it sing and only when it saw a dweller from its distant land, or to its arowsy peron mere came a tone nttara long ago in m ownJ ocds. So the song that weman sings best is heard within home's sacred temple. Elsewhere a trum. pet tone, perhaps a clarion cry, but the lute like voice has fled, the "Mtzzosoprano" is lost in the discords of earth. Deep down in the heart of every man ne tun wen Knows tnere would be no peace, happiness nor even common oomtorts vt life without wjman. For her society he would make a sacrifice of every man he knows, of evsry interest in life which the buseness world counts material For her smiles and kisses he would do such bat tle in the very front of war, as neither patriotism nor any other inoentive oould induce him to face. A great emergency arises man shrinks baok from it awed and dismayed. "I dare not, oh I dare not," he cries, and then the eye of some sweet woman looks into his, her soft voice whispers,. uDj this for me" and fear it forgotten and the danger is bravely, trium phantly faced, and the world pays a tribute to man's daring which o'omag'i influence gained. This is the all-powerful influ ence woman has without the note; Will the- vote strengthen it or weaken it? I believe that it will weaken it. James DxMPdEY Bullock, Wilson, N. 0.

Some people are so dirpossd that they cannot rest easy until they have investi gated their neighbors business, and even uegleoted their own to do to. This is due to envy on the one hand and slander on the other. Envy oaoseaus to desire to possess the good fortune we see falling to others. The meddler is satisfied when he finds out eve-ry little thing about others iff airs and is pleased better if there is no good be found.

They talk about people Ind not things. Mere gossip is degrading, the cultured not only slum it but do not allow themselvps to be tempt ed to indulge in it. It is a dirty business and rages in this com munity like a peat, , The ohurohes are hurt by it, and many made enemies by it. Be on your guard, or you will oontraot this bad habit busybodies mean to do harm and they are not sorry when they ssrooeed. They are oonstant dis turbers of the peace. One never meddles into another's affairs but with the purpose to do him mis chief. Busybodies cause much trouble br provocation. ms ' ine moss dangerous perssn in the world is the go between who, under the mask of friendship acts the part of a double traitor. The less business a man has ofhis own the more he attends to somebody else's. Do not be a curiosity seeker, for in your own mind yon have trouble enough The cariosity of an honorable man restB where love of truth does not urge it on, s,nd love for fellowmau bids it stop Busybodies never hold their curiosity in reasonable limits. Busybodies are seldom moved by the spirit of charity. Thev are not curious to find where they can lenu a neipins nana, if it were, it would be an admirable trait instead of detestibie. Any Ohristain gentleman will strive to be free from meddling, he will leave that to the low and shallow brained and respect himself too much to be classed with them .

Recognized Advantages. You will fi -id that Chamber lain's Cough Remedy has recog nized advantages over most Medi oiues iu use for oooghs and colds.

Dr. Josiah Strong, author and well known congregational minis ter, sums up the evils of the pa pacy in his word. "Our Coun try," in the following convincing and powerful words : "1. The supreme sovereignty of the pope is opposed to the sov ereignty of the people. "1 The commandments of the pope instead of the Consti tution and lavs of the land de mands the highest allegiance ot Roman Catholics in the United States. 48. The alien Romanist who seeks citizenship among ub, swears true obedienoe to the pope, instead of renouncing forever all allegi ance to any foreigu prince, poten- tare state or sovereignty as requir ed by our laws. "4, The pspaoy teaches religi ous intolerance instead of religious liberty. (See first amendment to the Constitution.) "5. The papacy approves the union of church and state instead of their entire separation . '6. The papacy is opposed to our public sohools. "7. The papaoy demands the censorship of ideas and the press instead of freedom of speech and the press." Readers will notice that these evils are notqiestions of religion, bat matter pertaining to oivil rights, things in the domain or politics. These constitute the menace to free institutions and liberty. This is our fight. We aocept Rome's challenge and no power on earth can drive us from the field. The Menace).

The pos sibility that there may be others who have formed the same erro neous opinion suggests the pro priety of discussing that phase of the question in these columns. It is preoiiely because Rome, through the deorees of her popes, denies the liberty of conscience, thought, speeob, and press, that we take issue w'th her and oppose the activities of Romish olergy and orders in American politics. One papal document, alone, is sufficient to prove that the papal system not only condemns free dom of conscience, but condemns popular schools free from her own authority, and condemns all reli gions but her own.
