Here is, the elimination  of petty village rivalries, that can  be taken advantage of by outsiders for their oYwn purposes, and a  determination   to  work altogether  for the good of the whole./. It was  suggested at the meeting that settlers  when  they, came  should be  made   welcome  by  finding  themselves among friendly people ready  and able to show them what had  to be done to make life, pleasant)  tand   profitable.   This   Is  the   beginning of a new era for the whole  of the Fraser Valley.   It that move   the throne  try   under  the  sun  produces  it   is  brought  right   to   his   very  door, with its thousands oi attending   official   representatives,   progressive   agriculturists  and   capl-  tians of, finance and transportation,  who travel thousand's and thousands of miles to ascertain what me  his   requirements, what  they  can  do  to  make  his  journey  through  life easier and happier, and what  is  best for the  country, yes,- tne  world, as  a  whole?

In whatever line of supply \\\n  market may fall short of what tin;  agricultural capital of British Columbia should provide, the volume  of business done in the poultry sec  tion has certainly fulfilled the most  insistent demands: For the past  few weeks, it has been practically  the main feature, and this, week  was not an exception. Poultry .of  all ages and sexes, including ducics  and pigeons, arrived in crates, and  were quickly disposed of and carried away. Even at that, the floor  space allotted was more than taken - up, and the crates overflowed,  into other sections.  The large supply caused a slight  ���������decrease in prices, ducks especially, being cheap.- They sold for lou  per lb., live weight, and from $D  jt*.o $7 per dozen. Broilers,, chickent-  and young hens were sold at prices ranging all the way from $3 to  $9 per dozen.

VALUE OF CO-OPERATION  The municipalities of the Fraser  River Valley have at last awakened to a sense of their vast import  ance. They have realized that the  settler who should have settled on  the land and added to the ,pm3-  perity of their community and, incidentally, the value of their revenues has been attracted by the  stronger magnet of the city and  has become a lost soul among a  thousand other lost souls all doing  what purely artificial conditions  have made them do, instead of the  work God put to their hands.  Realizing this, the municipalities  mentioned have determined to  form their own publicity associa-  and tn this end held an interesting  meeting in New Westminster a  few  aneial  facilities  for   farmers,   and   duce gettlers to come to the dia-  the provision of 'cold storage and [trict by means of extravagant or  erroneous statements.  The cost of the various classes of  land in ttie different districts wili  be given' and the estimated cost of  preparing such land for crop, raising will also be dealt with at length.  The nature .of the crops raised in  each vicinity and gross and net returns from each class of crop will  be gone into thoroughly.  Expert articles on Dairying, Fruit  and Berry Growing, Field Crops,  Chicken Raising,-and other forms  of agricultural development, wili  be published periodically and each  and every branch of industry will  be dealt with in a conservative  manner.  "The Fraser Valley"' will be distributed on the trains at Kamloops  and at other points farther east, in  ordered that the huge army of immigrants may have an adequate  opportunity of familiarizing themselves with existing conditions  prior to their arrival in the Valley.  The various Boards of Trade and  municipal bodies will be invited  to furnish the publishers with the  names of friend so rrelatives who  are liable to be interested in tha  actual conditions existing in the  valley, and copies will be sent to  them.  The magazine will in reality be  a record of progress of t^e Fraser Valley and will be printed and  published in Mission City. The  point of publication, will have no  influence upon its columns, as there  will be no attempt to discriminate  between the various districts. Each  section of the Valley will be dealt  with on its merits, and no attempt  will be made to favor one distnci  above another.���������Star.

"Uisl evening about 11 o'clock. 1  ���������will begin at the moment when 1 stepped into Flicksell's and bought the  ring. 1 had been wanting it for some  time, for it was a genuine antique.  History said it was tbe favorite finger  ring of one of. the emperors of the  Ming dynasty.. The workmanship was  exquisite, wltb the delicate carving of  tbe Chinese artisan. The ring was  formed of carved Ivory, and the setting was a perfect piece of clear green  jade with a dragon carved upon it.  "Flicksell had put a pretty steep  price on it, and I had been, beating  him down until at last., he met my  offer. J sent him a check for the  umoutit, and 1 stopped in there last  evening on ray way to. tbe club and  got the ring. 1 dined at the club and  went to tbe theater afterward. When  1 got home 1 took the ring out and  l������������id it on the table here. 1 turned  away to remove my overcoat, and as 1  approached the table again to examine  the Jade ring 1 saw that it had vanished. 1 have not seen it since, nor  can I find any trace of its whereabouts. It's up to you to find it for  '���������'���������'  me." ."'  Detective Fenn flung aside his cigar  and twirled his lingers thoughtfully.  "Anybody know you bad purchased  the rlugV" be Inquired.

"My butler, James Gammon."  ������������������Was he In the Library after you entered ;the room V"  UI believe be came lu to close a window or something of that sort. 1 may  as well tell you, Mr. Fenn, that I eliminate James Gamracta from the case.  'A man who has the custody of thousands of dollars* worth of gold and  silver plate is not going to sell himself  for a trashy looking Chinese ring. No  one who was not versed in such matters would have looked at the thing a  second time."  ���������- "Xou W          ,-,."

"Jade rings don't vanish into thin  nlr even If they are hundreds of years  old," remarked Mr. Fenn, dropping  upon his knees and examining the rug  under the table. *I suppose you think  maybe one of those old Ming emperors  was hanging around and snatched it  off when you wasn't looking."  Mr. Raddason smiled sheepishly.  "I'll admit that I've considered the  probability of that happening, Mr.  Fenn. I've heard of some very queer  happenings in connection with those  ancient rings. I may as well say I've  crawled all over the floor and I cac't  find a trace of the thing. I feel mighty i  uncomfortable over the matter." !  Detective Fenn was creeping around  the room, peering under chairs and  tables and bookcases, turning up the  corners of rugs, poking into every  crevice and cranny that might afford  a biding place for the-Jade ring. He  poked down into the crevices of the  leather chairs without result At last,  ���������he emerged, hot and dusty, to resume,  his seat at the table. There he lighted  another cigar and prepared himself a  glass of plain  soda  water.  "Neverthel^s I would like to question James Gammon, Mr. Raddason,"  he said after a little pause.  "At the risk of my losing the best  servant I ever had In my employ,"  commented Mr. Raddason as he rang  the bell.  Instantly James Gammon was before  them, tall, pale, sleek and v&y deferential.  "James," said Mr. Raddason kindly,  "something has been lost from this  room, and I have called Mr. Fenn in  to try to unravel the matter for me.  As you were In here last evening when  I returned home, Mr. Fenn thinks you  might be able to help us out"  "Yes, sir," said the butler In rather  an uncertain voice. "Of course I don't  know anything about It, sir," he concluded hoarsely.  "Of course not���������of course not. Still.  Mr. Fenn thinks you might be abis  to tell him whether the doors and,  windows had been open or closed dur*  Ing the evening and whether soma  one might have been concealed In the  room when I returned horns from tiia  theater."  "By the way, what play did you go  to see last night, Mr. Raddason?" asto-  ed the detective.  Tbe millionaire paused and nibbled a  finger thoughtfully. His forehead  creased In a puzzled frown that deeBr  ened as the minutes passed. "I'm  blessed if I can tell you, Fennl" lw  cried at last "I've been to some show  every night this week, and I can't remember which one I did go to see last  night"  "I beg your pardon, sir," ventured  the butler meekly, "but you told m������  you had been to the annual dinner of  the Trout club."  "Pooh! You're dreaming, James," remarked Mr. Raddason uneasily. "What  else did I say last night; eh?"  James   looked  exceedingly   uncomfortable, and yet there was a malicious  gleam in his little dark eye. He hesitated until his master repeated impatiently: ...   \   '     .  "What else did I say, James?"  The  butler  coughed  deprecatlngly,  looked helplessly around the room and  then blurted forth in a low tone the.  information that Mr.  Raddason  bad  called him into the library, to look at at!  ilttle.rlngtallecL-gree-a.dEagoa^^ictt  fieTaid lvli������T^cT5ear"on"Tne 'fable.  "And    what .did   you   see   there,  James?" demanded his master icily.  "1 didn't see nothing, sir," said the  butler uncomfortably.  "You may go, James, and I recommend that you omit several quarts of  champagne from your dally ration;  I'll guarantee you won't see any rlng-  tailed.green dragons or anything else."  Mr. Raddason waved an Imperative  hand, and the butler went reluctantly  from''the room. His last look was at  the detective, and Mr. Fenn was positive that the butler crooked a beckoning finger at him as he disappeared.  "By the way, you didn't get a chance  to question James after all," remarked  Mr. Raddason. , "Perhaps it doesn't  make any difference, though-tho fellow seems to be rather rattled about  something or other. I don't know what  he meant by the Trout club.dinner;  that's not due until the 23d.;;  Mr. Fenn took the,morning newspaper from the table and scanned the  pages carelessly. Presently his gaze  became fixed, and he read for several  moments   before   he   laid   the  paper  down.  "I'd like to use the telephone for a  moment. Mr. Raddason," ' be said.  "Where shall I find it?"     ������  "In the hall; James will show you."  Raddason touched the bell, and.James  appeared, and In response to. Mr.  -Feun's request he led the detective  down the long hall to the telephone  booth. Before the detective picked up  the receiver he had a short conversation with tho butler.  When the detective returned to'the  library he found Mr. Raddason in the  act of swallowing a headache powder.  "Had a beastly headache all the morning."- he complained. ,"l'got to thinking about that. confounded ring and  wondering where it had gorle to."  "Don't worry any longer, Mr. Raddason,"^ said the -detective calmly.  "The ring has been found."  "Found.!" exclaimed Mr. Raddason  excitedly:" ".You don't meau to say  James"���������      "'       '**���������-..

"Why���������why���������why, what do you  mean, Fenn?" sputtered Mr. Raddason  "warmly.   ' -'  "I just called Mr. Flicksell on the  telephone, and he says you haven't  been after the ring yet. If you will  look at this morning's newspaper you  will see an account of the Trout club's  dinner and also mention of the fact  that Mr. Raddason mixed a famous  punch of his own invention, called  rlngtailed green dragon punch, Mr.  Raddason. It seems it Is composed of  soda water, absinth, limes in plenty,  mint, old Malaga wine and various  other ingredients-If you will pardon  | me, sir, enough fireworks to make a  fellow see all sorts of queer things."  He looked away from Mr. Raddason'a  disturbed countenance.  "Do you mean to say that I was���������er  ���������affected by that punch of my own  concoction?" asked the millionaire in a  horror struck voice. "Why, Mr. Fenn,  I've never been in that condition iu  my life."  "I understand that you, never have  been before, but I took the liberty of  Inquiring concerning your movements  last night Several .of the guests  whose names are mentioned told me  that you were not feeling well find  I went home at 10:30. That's all, I believe, sir," said the detective, rising  from his chair. "Mr.-Flickseirwill tell  you that the ring has not yet been  catfed for."  Mr. Raddason sat In thoughtful silence for some time. "James is a good  fellow and of impeccable character, as  I've already told you, Mr. Fenn," he  said, with a whimsical smile. "I wonder what I owe him." He drew a  checkbook toward him and filled in a  check and gave it to the detective,  with a wry smile.  "One on me, Mr. Fenn. I'll catch'  you yet, though," ho threatened.  The detective tucked the check  away with a satisfied chuckle. "I'm  a temperance man myself, sir," he  murmured.

M  she grows'up she will long above all  things to go away to the old countries  of the world where she may stuoy  great art and learn how to express for  others what she sees herself. If she  returns to Canada, she will miss the  atmosphere of art and love of art n  which she has been at work while  sLudying abroad and which is of indescribable assistance in her work,  [f she required to earn her own living,  which is the -condition of* the great  majority .of good Canadians, she  knows that she will find it practically  Impossible to do so by means of painting only. An artist naturally would  prefer to spend her working day in  painting just as a writer prefers to  write. We find in Canada that many  of the young women who would paint  pictures and nothing else. If they had  a choice frequently give lessons in  painting, or they turn to commercial  art and draw designs and illustrate  fashion's and advertisements. This  means that the time of the artist in  Canada is broken in on by occupations  to some degree alien to her choice.  A.11 fine imaginative work needs long  pondering. If the artist's mind is continually distracted by other work  the artist actually experiences keen  suffering and when the artist's work  is good it is good In spite of the  distraction and not because of it.  There is a considerable number both  of men and women painters in Canada and their names and work should  be more familiar to the average  Canadian reader than 1b the case at  present.

Alexander Jameson Calhoun, of  Bloomfield. N.J., has in vented a d.-vk:e  which he says: will assist women  wearing hobble skirts in getting  aboard trains. Thw device, which is  worked by hydraultic pressure, consists, of an iron jack to which is attached a cushioned chair worked by  two levers. The "lift" is placed In  front of the platform of the car. Whon  the woman Is seated in.the chair tho  operator presses a handle which lifts  the chair up in line with the platform  of the oar. He then works a lever  which extends tho chair straight out  ind lands the passengers on ..tho platform', of the car. It is said persona  are lifted to tho platform quicker  than they can cKrnb the steps.  Bloomfield women who have tried  Lhe "lift" say they hope it will be  placed In all stations. At moBt coun-  ry stations, the platforms are very  low, wh'v.h 'makes the first step of  the car about eighteen Inches from  the ground.  In Which the Lady Holds  Her Own to the  Last  By F. A. Mitchcl  Copyright by American Press Association, 1911.     ,  '  "Marcella,". said  Major Harrington,  rising, "I shall never give It up."  "Major," replied the .young lady,  "you are wasting your time and opportunities. You are getting oa in life���������  you must have turned thirty���������and H  you expect to marry it is time yoii  "were making up to some nice girl who  will be disposed to look - favorably on  your suit." ��������� ��������� ,  . "I am making ,up to a very nice  girl, a girl who will eventually look  favorably on my.suit."  "If you refer to me, I must tell you  again that you are mistaken."  , "Tt shall be my part to convince you  that it is you who are mdstaken.*-  "Enough of this war of words. Good  night."  "Tomorrow there is to be a sham  battle.   Are you to be on the field?"   '*���������  "I am to join the.staff of the general  of the blue."  "Indeed, that's quite an honor. General Snigson is not given to Inviting  women to participate with him in  army maneuvers."  "Goodby. I,would advise you to try  a certain young lady whose father  wears an eagle on his shoulder."  "Thank you., I shall stick to the  young lady who���������as they say in the  French ex-ercises���������is temporary aid to  the general of the.blue."  This, kind of skirmishing had been  going1 on for iweeks between Marcella  Laraway and Major Harrington. The  major's attentions had been the talk  of the garrison for the reason that  Miss Caraway had "turned down" officers of higher, rank and in some cases  inore ample fortune. It was expected  that Harrington would join the innumerable caravan the lady was sending Into the desert never to return.  Notwithstanding the bold face the  mayor had pat on the matter while in  the presence of Miss Laraway, he no  sooner left her than he became as limp  as a wet rag. He went to his quarters,  threw himself into an easy chair, lit a  pipe and gave himself over to a reverie which was anything but hopeful.  The^, adage "Faint heart never won  fair lady" seemed to him a mockery.  On   this  occasion   he  felt .more  d������-  *.���������/���������">> tl    -r*  "WHO'S THH ���������OKAD'MAN?"  pressed than usual. It was a matter of  common talk in the garrison that General Snigson was eager to marry  again, and recently he had shown attentions to Miss Laraway. His haying  Invited her to join his staff In tho sham  battle was especially noticeable, for he  was known to deprecate the presence  ������f women In the line of duty. Moreover, Harrington believed that Miss  Laraway would prefer to be Mrs. General to being Mrs. Major.  There are twin worlds at army posts  in time of * peace���������the military world  and the social world, When officers  and officers' wives, sisters, cousins  and guests saw Marcella Laraway in  a blue habit covered with gold lace  and an officer's cap on her head riding in the staff of the general of the  blue they took more interest in the  matter than in the result of the sham  battle. The word passed from mouth  to mouth, some saying that the general had got Miss Laraway, others  that Miss Laraway had got the general. Some exclaimed, "Good match l"  others, "Why, he's old enough to be  her father!" Notwithstanding these  differences of opinion, all agreed that  the fact of Miss Laraway's presence  on the generq'.B-j**ift4EJ^^  a preTImTnaTry" move* to an announcement of an engagement  ' And now comes one of those incidents, contretemps, coincidences���������call  them what you will��������� that so often  have thrust themselves into battles  and turned the scale to one side or  the other. Ap aid-de-camp galloped  up to Major Harrington and, saluting,  said:  "Major,. Harrington, the Judges  have decided that this position is un  tenable and that it is too late for you  to retreat You are enfiladed by ar  tillery and a charge has been made  that has annihilated your battalion  Consider yourself out of the fight"  ��������� The aid galloped away, and the major  gave the order to stack arms and break  ranks. Then, sheathing his sword,  he dismounted, gave his horse to an  orderly, and. going to a tree, lay down  on his back in the shade. - The flies  tickled his nose so he covered his face  with his handkerchief. One of his  captains remarked that he looked as  if he had been killed practically as  well as theoretically.  How long the major lay there he  didn't know, for he went to sleep. He  was awakened by, tbe thud of horses'  hoofs on the tuff and was about to  arise and salute some general who was  doubtless riding by with 'his' staff  when he heard a voice that he recognized \ as that of the general of the  blue:  "Who's the dead man?" ggf' '  "Major Harrington." ^f#'  A shriek!    , '���������    .  Harrington took in the situation at  once. The shriek had come from General Snigson's aid, Miss Laraway. Instead of rising and saluting he  thought it would be Jess embarrassing  for Marcella if be lay still. Besides, he  wished to hear the rest. "  "He isn't dead.' Miss Laraway, any  more than the rest of his command.  They're all theoretically killed."  This was said by the chief of  staff. The general had colored and  turned away. All that Harrington  heard. after that was the tread of  horses' hoofs as the party rode away.  "Hum!" he exclaimed 'to himself.  "Methinks that other .fight in which 1  am more interested than this one is  decided, defeat being turned to victory  for my own long" suffering self. . If she  can avert disaster in consequence of  this panic she'll do better, than I think  she can." ���������  Harrington sat up and looked about  him. Some distance away were 'the  general of the bjue and his staff.  Near by.the officers of the battalion  were'standing in a group. They were  evidently waiting' for him to, awake  from his slumber, and-from the expression of-their faces they had evidently heard the cry Miss Laraway  had raised at being.informed that the  stiff and stark body lying on Its back,  the face covered with a handkerchief,  was their major. A second lieutenant  was rash enough to laugh and was  about to say something intended to be  funny, but Harrington managed to  forestall him with a reproof for a  trumped up error in the line of duty  during the fight that shut him up.  Then came the signal for the troops  to march to quarters. Harrington got  his battalion under arms and. in ten  minutes was marching past the line of  houses within the garrison lnclosure  where lived the officers and their fam  Hies. On the porches were the women  of the post, and as the major passed  he perceived that every eye was fixed  upon him and every pair of lips wore  a smile. He looked for Miss Laraway  and saw her standing surrounded by a  group of women. But before he came  abreast of the porch on which she  stood she had broken away from those  about her and gone into the house.  The same evening Harrington called  upon Miss Laraway. She* came down  with., a hot pair of cheeks and clear  eye, defiant even at the moment of  irretrievable defeat  "Marcella," began the major, "I told  you yesterday when I left you"���������  "Yes; yes," she Interrupted, "you  told me. I suppose you have come to  tell me again."  "This time I have come to arrange  with you some plan by which you  may appear in a proper position before this garrison."  "I care nothing for the opinion of  the garrison."  "I do. I do not care to have my  brother officers, their wives and others  who have'witnessed my attentions to  you blame me for having won tbe  heart of a simple, innocent"-  "Ob, go on with what you're trying  to say."  "I don't care to have them think  that I have been trifling with you."  "Don't trouble yourself about that  I can take care of my heart, and they  all know it"  "But you must admit that the Incident which occurred today has lost  you the star of a brigadier general."  "What do I care for"- She stopped  and bit her lip.  "Marcella, you have today placed us  both in a position from which there is  but one exit One topic is being talked  of tonight In the 'married quarters'  and at the officers' mess.  Yxm know  .very well what that subject is. Yesterday it was supposed that the Invitation you received to take,part in the  maneuvers as General Snigson's aid  meant the early announcement of your  engagement with him."  "It did not"  "Never mind whether it did or did  not   the   garrison   so   considered   it,  General  Snigson  Is  now lost to you.  Suppose that I leave.you In the lurch-  where'will you stand?"  She;turned away with a shrug.  "There is one  way,  and only  one,  to save us both," he added.  '���������"What's that?"  "For me to announce our engagement"  "You?   Why you7"  "Under the circumstances, I am the  proper person to do so."  "You needn't trouble yourself."  He looked at her for a few moments  and, seeing no sign of relenting, concluded to be satisfied for, the present  with the position he occupied, rest on  his arms and later advance to take  possession  of  the  enemy's  defenses.  Bidding her" good night,   he  strolled  over to his quarters.   He .found them  occupied by a dozen or more of his  brother officers.   Every man advanced,  with outstretched hand and congratulated him on his engagement  "Who said I am engaged?" he asked,  surprised.  "Oh, you're behind the times. The  lady gave it out as soon as the manea-  fcers .were over."- .,. -���������-���������  Judge Got the Baby.  * A  few   ------s   ago   ah   Iowa   county'  court   judge   tried   to   imitate   King  Solomon  in  his   well-knc"**n   decision  respecting the child that was claimed  by., two  women.

Whoreujn,.  one  of  the  mothers   exclaimed,   "Oh, *  no! If it comes to that you may keep  the child yourself," and both women  left the court.  "It appears to me that Solomon wr  a   very   over-rated   man,"   murrnurp'1  the judge.   ..

Of the 660 whose recreations are  quoted, 225, or more than one-third,  acknowledge shooting as a favourite  form of play. Of these fourteen at  least specify rifle target shooting,  and six big game shooting. The rest  it may be presumed- are" devoted to  hunting in one form or p neither. "T,et  ,us go out and kill something," is the  way a witty Frenchman once described the Englishman's idea of  sport, and the Canadian seems in a  fair way to follow his example. Fishing and shooting go together with a  large number of people, and 152 mention fishing as a recreation.  For a country with such splendid  water courses and lakes, the number  among those mentioned who are devoted to water sports is surorisingly  small. With only forty-four is yachting or sailing a recognized diversion.  Canoeing appeals to thirty-one, boating without special preference to  forty, rowing to thirteen, swimnihg  to six, and camping, which of course  includes any or all of the pleasures  of the water, to thirty-one.  The Bame thing may be said of  winter .sports. The Canadian winter  is tho glory of the Canadian climate,  but in view of the general favour in  which winter sports are held, it is  remarkable that only 96 ��������� perhaps  largely the Scotch proportion off the  population ��������� go in for curling,  thirteen for skating, three for hockey,  two for snowshoeing, two for skiing,  and one for tobogganing.  Athletic and outdoor sports do not  occupy as important a place as might  be expected. This may be due to the  fact that as men grow older ���������. old  enough to qualify for admission to  "Who's Who" ��������� they have usually  passed from the performing to the  onlooklng stage in athletics.  :sw  .lSIB8������������Km|i^^ tD 3 ^ao'aeToaaA    ,tso i ano^avoaa a.

The   frantchioa  for women  was not   a' new thing,  liighteen years ago they had worn  an suffrage in Sweden, and fifteen  years ago it existed' in the "United  states,  inougn of late years man^ ���������  ^ave  made  iC   a   subject for ndi-  ome.    Woman suffrage has proven  che upl.it.ng of ihe equality of men  and women, and persuasion alone  nas. accomplished /what   has,   yel  Deen done for this cause.  The day of making fun of mis  question nas gone by. Prominent  questions arc considered every  where bu tthe suffrage question *.-<  as prominen tand important as any.  i.t is no ionger unpopular; no question for argument, but a recognised, subject for discussion by legislators and others. One of thenis'.  woman suffrage parades in Liz*  York city some ten years ago was  participated in by three thousand  women and witnessed by two thous  and people.  Another? arranged last year was  participated in by from fifteen to  twenty" thousand people and wit  nessed by five hundred thousa.iu  and in that parade were one thousand club men of New York, many  of them of national reputation.  Many men have joined the ranks  a9   symiiathetic  husbands,   willing  to-a.u  their wives, ,who were no.,  always homely, or the ill-descriO-  ed   creatures   so  rudely   piptuicJ  but whoie-sou'led women with In..*  light oi life in  their eyes, thouji*  the white in their hair showed ljj-**  tribulations   passed   through,  giv  ing  an  air of. distinction  brought  out by these very trials.

It is  coming... Keep  still if you d/J-not  want  it;  if  you   do, work   for tc  When  do we wish it, right away,  or let it drag along, and then keep  still.

Let everyone else be as he  is   but   ail  work   for   a    common  cause, instead of spending time ana  effort to change the conditions of  one   society into  that  of another.  Woman   suffrage  is, for  all of  us  and  no particular few, so eveiy-  body must work for it.  Legislators  are  not  particular  who votes for them; you will'southern shaking hands with anybody  and everybody around election tune  So; we too, must let people of every,class participate in this straggle   for   human   rights.)   Work , at  home, among your neighbors, anywhere  and  everywhere;  tact  and  good nature were wonderful factors, and sometimes it was not wi**-*.**  to be too friendly among ourselves.  Mrs. Hill instanced  a case where  the cause was    save'd    in   a   particular State  by   a   falling out  in  the   suffragist* party.   She   recalled   a  suffrage luncheon to which  women of the first class were hi-,  vited  and their names published  This was a protection, many pron  inent politicians wives attended.  There is scarcely.a woman tnat  cannot help the work along* in some  form, even to the woman who ^an  handle saloon keepers and their  wives. But don't waste time try-,  ing to get an unworkable woma*j  to work. Let her alone, as ai&o  the woman with money who won't  give any.   We must be liberal.  Then look carefully around and  find some woman in the neighboi-  hood who will mother the whole  organization and be a head around  which the smaller societies can revolve, and results will prove the  1 efficacy of this organized effort.  The majority for woman suffrage  on election day in the State oi  Washington was twenty-two thoua  -,md.; The' majority for the sa-a-*-'  in Seattle was four thousand.  Women make the nation, and as  woman is necessary to the welfnit,  of a good home, so she.is necn-"-  sary.to   a  good government .  It is coming, it is coming, work  for it.
