HE well being of society cannot be attained without th
CO-OPERATION OF WOMEN who have it at heart
Some women find their chief delight in tho study of publi

we acquiesce in this indifference?
NO, WE CANNOT. WOMEN MUST MARCH WITH THE ARM! Y

I remember once being aroused from a deep
slumber in which I had a vision. I seemed to see
in a rather confused way a number of men and
women working at desks nnd tables, all workin;
hard and being evidently in a hurry.
A voice said to me: "Look at theso men and
women. They are WORKING FOR TIIE GOOD
OF HUMANITY. They are working liko ants,
like bees -yr, they are working liko engines for tho WELFARE
OF THE HUMAN HACK. Ilnvo a good look nt them and don't
