The cheapest shades
you can buy
True, you put just a
trifle more into them at
first than you would into
ordinary shades, but you
get several times more

For these shades are made of
a closely woven cloth without
that filling of chalk and clay
which, in the ordinary shade, so
Poon cracks and falls out in un
sightly streaks and '"pinholes".
Brenlin Unfilled Shades always hang
traight and smooth and really shade.
Come in and examine them. You
it ill realize that it is false economy

Mrs. Percy Pennybacker, the present

The two women now up for election
are Mrs. Samuel B.Sneath, of Ohio,
now first vice president and Mrs. Jo
siah Evans Cowles, of California, wno
in one capacity or another, has been
a member of the national board for
the past eight years. Mrs. Sneath is
an ardent suffragist in a state thus
far defeated at the polls. Mrs. CowIe3
is a voter. Aside from this essential
difference, which gives Mrs. Cowles
heavy odds, a curious question of tra
dition enters into the struggle. Mrs
Sneath as first vice president, is' the
logical candidate; It has been a time
honored custom in the federation to
raise the second in command to the
chair. But Mrs. Cowles was also first
vice president In 1912 in San Franclo
co, when another tradl .on intervene
ed to prevent her running for first
One of the unwritten but rigidly
enforced laws of the federation
that the hostess state of the conven
tion shall advance no candidate for
the presidency. California was the
hostess state, and Mrs. Cowles, who
had been most active in winning the
consent of the administration for San
l'rancisco's Invitation, could not be
put In nomination. Her personal sac
rifice for her state has now become
the slogan of her party. The prestige
of her position near the throne will
carry weight for Mrs. Sneath. Both
women have held state office, both
would be unhampered by many family
ties in exacting duties of a president
who must tour the country and assUi
in all variety of gatherings.
Mrs. Sneath Is a widow of wealth
ana social position, her only cmia a
married daughter. Mrs. Cowles is thy
wife of a well .known physician and
las no children.
The European war will likewise
play a part In the election. Mrs.
Cowles has been chairman of the
peace committee during the past two
years, and the most active campaign
is now going on to stampede the con
vention lor preparedness. This Is a
measure largely endorsed by the anti-
suffragists, who, In their associations,
are pledged to uphold it, but are bit

and the women in charge of the

as women already have the right to

Analyzed along partisan lines the

Misses for women, while on the republican
side about 69 per cent favored and
only 28 per cent opposed.
The opponents of suffrage have de
clared that here, as with the prohi

must be accounted as a factor making
equal suffrage undesirable. But the
suffragists have counted on this ar
gument with the facts that In
nine of the fifteen southern states
having a marked negro popula

total negro population and that In all
southern states there are more than
2,000,000 more white women than ne
