Suffrage Leader Says Leap
Year !s Not a Joke But a
Leap year will be here in a
very short time, writes Zoo Beck
ley in the Washington I'ost.
Having reminded you of this
significant fact, we face the in
evitable query, "May woman
propose?" We no longer ask
this timidly, with bated breath
and furilive giggles, as in grand
ma's day. Times have changed.
Woman has changed. Economics
have changed. And therein lies
the kernel of thi3 hard old nut
that every four years we renew
our efforts to crack.
The element that in olden
times made a proposal of mar
riage from a woman an indeli
cacy was its implied demand for
support. This barrier has been
removed. With woman's fuller
education, broader experience of
life and opportunities for eco
nomic freedom, she no longer
asks a boon. She no longer has
to barter her sex for her living.
No. sir. All that is over. Wo
man now makes equal contribu
tion to the partnership—often
superior ones. She gives the
fruits of her trained faculties.
And, being free and independent,
she can afford to be honest. She
sheds eubtorfupre and claims an
equal right with man to initiative.
"We undoubtedly would havej
been lost to each other." savs
the young woman who is called
the most beautiful suffragist in
the world, "if I had not done the
proposing. That is why I am
proud of having done it.
"I stand so firmly for woman's
equality with man in every re
lation of life that I cannot see it
matters from which one the
actual suggestion of partnership
"The one who first realizes the
affinity of heart and soul should
make it known to the other. In a
majority of cases this realization
comes first to the woman. Her
sensibilities are finer. Her per
ceptions more keen. The mat
ing choice is hers by natural
right, since she is the mother of
good attendance on this occasion.
With the opening of the ware
houses here next Monday a great
deal of tobacco is expected. It
is believed that the market here
will sell far more during the
latter half of the season than
during the first half. The same
corps of buyers will be on the
sales as before the holidays and
possibly one or two other good
companies wiil be represented.

Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local applications, as they j
cannot reach the diseased portion
of the ear. There is only one 1
way to cure deafness, and that
is by constitutional remedies
Deafness is caused by an inflamed
condition of the mucous lining of
the Eustachian Tube. When
this tube is inflamed you have a
rumbling sound or imperfect i
hearing, and when it is entirely j
closed, Deafness is the result, and 1
unless the inflammation can be i
taken out and this tube restored j
to its normal condition, hearing
will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of ten are caused by
Catarrh, which is nothing but an
inflamed condition of the mucous
