It was said on the morning after
election, in November last, that all
Nebraska women were woman suffra
gists. How this may be, we know
not, but it is certain that the full
record of what women suffered
in that campaign will never be
written, and it is a most pathetic fact
for us to consider, that the women
may speak and work and pray and, in
short, do everything for a reform ex
cept that which counts on election
Eaual rights for women means life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness
for half the human race. The key to
every door leading to usefulness and
success, in - a republic, is the ballot.
Lacking this, our best efforts fail
of complete fruition. Not one of the
great social moral questions demand
ing solution, can come to. annai set
tlement without the help of womans'
heart and brain. Mary L. Doe.
"God could not be everywhere,',
said the heathen sage, so he made
mothers.' The mother heart! Why, it
is like the heart of God. It broods
above humanity as Jehovah broods
over the children of men.- It stretches
abroad its embrace. And this mother
heart! Has it no place save in the
breast of the wife the mother? ; It
is this warm glowing heart enshrined
in the form of every woman. It sends
forth the Sister of Charity into the
waste places. It is the inspiration of
her who' seeks the redemption of the
lost. It is the flame that glows in the
heart of the virgin, who lavs it a con
secrated offering upon the altar of duty.
What is the duty of the hour? lo agi
tatei to force men to think; to point
out wrongs inflicted on the weak
and the helpless; to labor at all times
and in all places for that which is

humane: to stimulate a love for truth,
for liberty, for justice Elizabeth A.
Some Sayings and Doing of Women
The Woman's Temperance temple
in Chicago, planned by Mrs. Carse
of that city, will be one of the grand
est monuments to women's work for
reform and to her business ability that
the world has ever seen. It is to be
'thirteen stories in height, , will cost
$1,110,000. and it is expected that it
will bring in a rental of 250,000 a
year, all of which, when the building
is paid for, will go into the state and
national work of the W. C. T U.
This large increase in financial
strength will give a great impetus to
the work of that society. Dr. Del
ano, speaking at the corner stone
laying, where a thousand children
took part in the proceedings, said:
"National projects engrossed the
legislative mind, but the birth of a
moral issue, a question that touches
home and childhood and mother life,
that touches vitally the eternal and
supreme law of right, woman came to
Woman Suffrage ia Wyoming.
Rev. D. L. Reader, D. D. bishop
of the M. E. church of Wyoming,
says: - '': ' ; ' ' ';
In a marked degree we are a just
deople. To such a degree do they
carry this grace that they will not de
prive a woman of her rights because
she is a woman, but they allow her
the same chance men have. I have
been carefully . watching the effect of
the privileges they have granted her
for the last five years. I came here
not without prejudice against this in
novation. I have 'found that all our
women are not ideal ladies, but those
who came here ladies, are not less la
dies for having- enjoyed all the privi
leges granted them, even to that of
voting. I hey are just as good keep
ers-at-home, having a little more
stimulus to keep posted, are not less
devoted to the cause of Christ, and
are just as lovable and entertaining
as before voting. '
"The effect of the women about

fore I came to Wyoming, man as I
am, and reared in Missouri as I was,

ray wife by my side, and with as much
respect shown both of us as though we

seen the least impropriety in the con

Our Household Peta.
Little - Darence saw his mother
taste something and at once wanted
some. Giving him a spoonful, she
asked: "Isn't u delicious?" "No,"
said he, with a grave reflective lock,
"I fink it's honey!"
His brother was quick to catch an
idea, but words did not fix themselves
so easily. One Sabbath he was very
unquiet and his grandmother thought
to keep him still by teaching him a
bible verse. Over and over, she re
peated to him: "In my Father's house
are many mansions, if it were not so I
would have told you." "Now, Dan
niesay it," said Grandma. Sum
moning all his untrained power of
memory, he began: "In ray papa's
house are many mansions, if it were
no. no so Dannie would have come
and told you so!"
A little American boy who had a
German governess, committed to
memory at her request,

went 10 Dec ai nigm, ne ioiucu uu

tone, the explanatory words, "Das 1st

Little Johnny began to lay plans
for Christmas even before Thanksgiv
ing had arrived. "Mamma," said he
I know what I am going to ask
Santa Claus for already."
"What is it, Johnny?"
"A big red wagon."
"But how is Santa Claus to get the
wagon into your stocking?"
Johnny meditated a moment, and
"I'll wite and explain it to him.'g
He sat down, and in a short time
produced the following letter:
"Deab Santy Clos.I want you
to bring me a waggon, a good big
waggon, verry red, for Chrissmass. if
you can't gett the waggon in the
stocking, you can gett the stocking in
the waggon. Yours truly, Johnny.
You'll be sure to find something in
your stocking, Christmas, said Fanny
to her careless sister. What will it be

A Growler at the Christmas Festivities.
A growler at Christmas? Yes, a
fault-finding, cynical old thing. Let
me tell you what he saw, Wei1, first
he saw a struggling man, in debt and
harassed with a place for five dollars
as often as he had one. This man
knew that his wife would expect him
to remember her and the children
with holiday gifts, and so without
much holiday in his soul, he moved
heaven and earth as it were, to find
means to meet the family expectations,
No one heard the inward groamj, as
his family presented him with some
elaborate nothing that he knew would
be charged ud at the store when the
monthly bill came in.
I saw this and I began to grumble,
ust a little. . 1 he next day 1 neara
the pretty daughter of just such a fam
ilv discoursing like this: "What did
you get for Christmas? Really, you
ought to see my presents! I have per
fume cases, handkerchief boxes, fancy
paper, toilet cases, , boxes of candy
and a set of furs. Just come over and
see. You know. I just teased and
nouted and if they- hadn't got them,
I guess they wouldn't have had much
peace. And the spoiled girl laughed
merrily, and I began to growl al
most. . - .'.''.
Christmas eve the weight of public
opinion dragged me off . to church.
Now, I was taught very carefully, that
Santa Claus was a pretty, mythical idea
that it would do no harm to indulge,
if the children were not deceived in
regard to it I never was young
enough to believe m the reality. My
mother told me it was a make-believe
story as soon as I was old enough to
have anv ideas about it. booner or
later all children must know it and
cannot think they will respect their
parents' truthfulness any more if they
are ever left, for a day, to believe the
untruth. But be this true or not
what shall we say to entertainments
that now tell the story .of the Christ
child, and next minute tell gravely
how Santa CIjus flew over the moun
tains and came down the chimney
toDS? Will not the infant minds re
ceive the impression that both stories
are pretty fables? 'When too big to

Indeed, Charley. I don't think yon

Clara Arden stood coloring, and evi
dently annoyed, ia the midst of her
pretty little drawing room, while her
husband leaned against one of the
puffed damask chairs, pulling uncon
sciously at hit long beard.
"It won't be much, Clare, n said be,

Clara, setting her lips together.

Clara, coldly, "with a sick cook and
everything fa disorder."

went out. closing the door behind him
with more empnasia man was aoso-

! So Mrs. Arden adjusted her pretty
shining braids of brown hair in the
glass, and nestled down in the corner
of tbe sofa, to forget the wearisome
trials and vicissitudes of real life in the
pages of the morning papers.

"Whv. where is your husband?"
asked tne visitor in surprise.
"Dining out" v

"I don't know. Tho fact is. he met
an old college friend this morniujr,
and in a burst of inconsiderate hospi
tality so like a man, you know in
vited him to dinner. Of course. I
refnsed to ratify tho invitation. , What
could I do, with Bridget ill in bed ? So
I told him he must take his friend to a
restaurant or some suck place. He
asseuted with rather a bad grace, I
must confess; so, here I am, alive."
Mrs. Marley was a pretty, fair com
plexioned. oldcrly lady, with hair as
white as snow. One of those gentle,
helpful, motherly sort of persons, who
are invaluable te their friends. She
shook her bead as she listened to Mrs.
"Don't yen thSek I did right?" Clara
asked iinpulsiroly. 'Just consider
how I am situalcdr'
"It would hare been some trouble
and responsibility," said Mrs. Marley,
"to superintend" the preparation of

husband's guest to sit down to, but I
think I should have advised you to
try." ' "

on quite a different topic Mrs. Mar

And then came tbe long, lonely
evening, during which Clara sat by the
window, waiting and listening for
every aound, nervously impatient for
ber husband's return.
Of course, be is not the sort of man
to drink too much." she told herself,
over and over again; "but but I am
almost sorry I was so obstinate about
asking Mr. en wick to dinner, it
would not havo been so very much
trouble, after all. and I think Charley
was vexed about it."
Nine o'clock struck then 10 then
11 and Clara sprang up and began
pacing tbe room in her nervousness.
-I wish he would come!" she cried,
wringing her hands. "I wish he would
come!" . '
Just then there was some disturb
ance in the street, and glad at all haz
ards to escape irom ner own nnrasaing
thoughts. Clara threw open tbe win
dow and thrust out her head.
There was a little crowd at the cor
ner of the street, and she could dis
tinctly bear the leering voices of some
of tbe little street Arabs crying out:
"It's only a drunken man! Hallo,
mister. You'll find vour hat in the cut

Clara's head turned cold as ice.
Could it be possiblo? Was this poor,
staggering creature, whose uncertain
step afforded amusement to a mob of
boys, her noble husband? Hud he so
far forgotten himself and her? And if
so, nt whose door lay the fault? -Nearer
and nearer came the little
crowd. Clara drew in her head and
closed the window. She could not
bear to have the dreadful possibility
confirmed. She stopped her ears: she
buried her face in the pillows of the
