from Miss Pankhurst's summary:
"Having doalt with the early history of
the woman suffrage movement, the author
comes down to modern times, and gives the
reader an Intimate Insight Into the pictur
esque agitation of the suffragettes. An ao-
count la given of the events which led up
to the first militant outbreak and the man
ner of Its urbanization. The various mili
tant demonstrations are vividly described
and the aim of the author Is always to let
the reader see 'what was going on behind
the scenes. In order thut the motives of
those who have engineered the movement
may be thoroughly understood. In the
course of the story the protests at Cabinet
Ministers' ineetings, visits to their houses
and receptions when they were present, the
deputations and the bye-election policy are
explained. The writer is able to give des
criptions of the treatment of the suffrag-
getia prisoners from her own experience.
The hunger strike Is also dealt with, and
the reason for it, and Its effect upon the
women who were forcibly fed la carefully
described. An account Is given of the va
rious police court trials of the suffragettes,
including the one at Kow Btieet, which con
tains a full account of Miss Chrlstabel

MONDAY Tom and I said good-bye very
coldly to each other. If he Is determined
to think that I am such a deceitful sort of
woman t cannot help It. And to think
that I had almost been ready to accept
him If he had proposed! I didn't like to
tell him that, of course. If by the merest
chanoe it turned out that my Intuition
was wrong and he wasn't In love with me
after all. It would have been a little em
barrassing. But what would be the use of
having an Intuition If It made such a
mistake as that? It has always been a
pretty reliable one heretofore, but, good
ness knows. It gets a good deal out of prac
tice down here.
It didn't seem possible that Tom could
go back to town and not do something that
would assure me that I could do aa I Ukcd
about playing fast and loose with him, as
he called it
But he was perfectly businesslike, and
polite, and cheerful, and sensible, and
everything that was disagreeable. He was
aa friendly aa possible toward me and
seemed very anxious to get the morning
paper. I drove him to the station and he
read the paper most of the way.
We waited for the train and I would
have given anything if an attractive man
had come rushing up to me a man who
was very smart looking, with i wonderful
figure, and who would take no notice of
Tom at all. He and I would be thoroughly
absorbed in each other and would converse
In low, confidential tones about things that
existence. We would make a date to have
tea together In town the following day and
I would say good-bye to T6m In a kind sort
of absentmlnded way as the train ap
peared. But, of course nothing like that
oould happen here. A lot of husbands

then, horror of horrors! who should rush
up to me but the Professor. He looked
more awful than usual, and his bicycle
waa covered with dust. He has on a pair
of those dreadful things that clamp
trousers In around the ankles and a big
newspaper bundle. I didn't mind that a
bit, only I knew Tom wouldn't be Jealous
of a newspaper bundle sort of man.
Still, the Professor would look like that
sort of a man without one, so I don't sup
pose It made much difference.
I introduced him, and he was exces
sively cordial to Tom and did everything
that was stupid. I asked him to get me
a morning paper, and after he had gone
Tom asked scornfully: "Who la that old
gaxabo?" Luckily the train waa beard
then, and as he got out of the dogcart the
most divine creature. In a dream of a
gown, came dashing up In a motor, and as
soon as she put her foot on the atation,
tore up to him, crying: "Why, Tommle,
what are you doing here?"
She almost embraced him. In. the most
adorable way, and aa the train drew in he
waved to me, and I saw him helping her
on In the most attentive manner I drove
back home and stopped In the village to
order some canteloupes, a most appropriate
fruit for this place. I stopped for the mall
and there waa a letter from Charlotte, who
Is at Hot Springs. She says they have been
there for two weeks and she is tired out,
as It has been so gay there. After next
week she wants to go somewhere for ten
days or so for rest. She suggests com
lng here, and wants to know If there Isn't
some hotel where she can stay with her
maid, two dogs, Mr. Cooper and his valet,
a machine and a chauffeur, and a cousin
Now. If that Isn't Just like Charlotte. I've
told her that there &re no hotels here to
speak of, and yet she has probably de
tided how many rooms she will engage
and has a vague Idea that there two or
three to choose from.
Away down by the station there la

call It the "Bilge Water." Then there Is
another one a good del further along
named the "Sea View House." It seems
much more to the point to call that one the
"Swill View," and I never can think of
It except by the latter title. I shall write
and tell her that she can take her choice

The Department of the interior has a
varied lot of thinus to look after. Patents,
pensions, public lands, bounty lands, In
dians, education, conservation, rcclinnix
tion. InlnlUK. public paiks, map making,
water resources these are some of the
things which occupy the attention of the
secretary of the interior, l.iko nil other
cabinet officers he has his assistant secre
tary. There are two in his d''partf!Tit
One has Immediate oversight of Indian af
fairs, public lands and appropriations,
while the otherlias charge of matters per
taining to the bureau of education, the
patent office and' the pens. on office.
There is also a chief clerk, the man upon
whom devolves tho duty of supervising
the work of., the department, end seclnn
that tho orders of his superior officers are
carried out. There Is also nn nss.stnnl
attorney general, a disbursing officer, and
chiefs of the divisions of malls and files,
publications and supplies.
The patent office ranks first among the
bureaus of the Interior department.
Thomas Jefferson Is' the Inventor of the
American patent system. The patent of
fice always has been a self-supporting In
stitution. In point of fact, it has created
a surplus of JT.WV.OUO from the fees re
ceived from Inventors. It now desires to
have a home of its own, and thinks Uncle
Sain ought to nllow It to use Its 7,000,XHi
surplus for building such a home. Al
thoiiRh the bu.ldlng which houses this
bureau Is known as the patent office, It Is
in reality the ' home of the Interior de
partment. Patents are being applied for at the rate
of Si I. OHIO a year, and are issued nt the rate
of about bo.OtO a year. There have been
upwards ot l.tflu.ono applications filed since
the qrganixatlon of the office and more
than a million patents have been granted.
They are now expiring at the rate of
about 22,000 a year. Many Inventors are
emharrasrd by lack of funds, as Is shown
by the fact that over 6,000 patents are with
held each year because the patentees have
been unable to make the final payment
thereon. The first fee Is $15 and the final
one tX. There are also fees prescribed
for the re-Issuance of patents, for design
patents, caveats, assignments, drawing, etc.
It is becoming difficult to find profitable
patentable ideas. In one division of the
patent office there is kept a list of all the
patents on wrenches, and It would seem
that thousands of wrench patents have ex
hausted nearly every patentable idea in
that line. The same Is true of every other
division of the patent classification. In the
case of slot machines there are thousands
of them, of all shapes and sixes, even down
to one which will take the picture of any
man trying to pass a bad nickel, but which
will shine his shoes if the nickel Is a good
The pension office Is one of the biggest
money-handling bureaus of the government.
Since the civil war It has paid out about
$4,000,000,000 in pensions. More than S.OuO.OiJO
applications have been filed, and upward
of 2,000,000 of these have been allowed.
Tthere are now about 'XO.OoO pensioners car
ried on the rolls. Applications are still
coming In at the rate of some 00. OK) a year,
and are being allowed at the rate of t',000
a year. It has already paid out more than
fifty times as much for pensions on account
of Uie civil war as waa paid out on ac
count of the revolutionary war. The pen
alon list on account of tho civil war is more
than thirty times as great as that ot all
other American wara together.
Pensions are secured In two ways under
general legislative enactment and by spe
cial acts of congress. The bulk of the pen
sions are allowed upon applications con
forming to the general legiHlation. Those
whose records are so defective that they
cannot be granted under general legisla
Hon, as a rule carry their troubles to con
gress, and that body annually passes thou
sands of special acta enabling men to get
their names upon the roll who otherwise
could not do bo.
The commissioner of the general land of.
fice is charged with the survey, manage
ment and disposition of the public lands
and the settlement of conflicting titles to
those lands. He also executes all laws re
lating to the surveying, prospecting, locat
lng, etc., of land In the national forests.
If an Indian reservation Is to be opened up
It is his duty to arrange tha time and man
nor of the drawing, and to handle all da
tails relating to the establishment of the
homesteaders on their new farms. The
sale of public lands In the United States
Is no small thing. The government haa
been the direct owner of more than two
thousand million acres of land, about one
half of which still remains In Its posses
sion. During a recent year J. 500.000 acre
were sold for cash, MH),000 acres were given
away for services rendered, and 13,000,008
practically given awny to 80,000 homestead
ers. Pealdes this thirty complete towns
ultra were sold. 100 coal mines, 1.000 gold
mine claims and f.OOO tracts of timber land.
This Indicates that Uncle Sam does thrlv
Iiik irnl estate business.
Although the Indians are rapidly being
absorbed in the encompassing currents of
superior civilisation, there still remains
enough Incompetent ones to requite the
continuation of a national guardianship.
This guardianship la dclcg-lted to the com
missioner of Indian affairs, who has charge
of their lands, moneys, schools, supplies
and general welfare. In the early history
of the bureau of Indian affalis the Indian
country was divided Into large districts,
which were In charge of superintendents.
These districts, in turn, were subdivided
Into reservations, and each reservation had
its own Indian agent. All of this has been
obsnged and tho superintendents no longer
exist, while the aBents are passing. The
affairs of small groups of Indian are now
placed In the hands of bondea day school
teachers or farmers, who report directly to
the commissioner of Indian affairs.

The bureau of education directs the na
ional educational Interests of the country.
Its reports are published annually In two
volumes, which are valuable a a statistical
encyclopedia of educational progress. They
also contain a summary of all the latent
ideas In the educational world, of all recent
legislation, and of everything of value In

Tho geological survey waa originally In
tended to survey the public domain and to
ascertain the character of Its mineral de
posits, but It hsa so broadened the scope
of Its work as to become one of the most
important bureaus In the- entire govern
ment service. Many of Its duties have been
assigned to the new bureau of mines under
the law passed last winter. Between the
two they have charge of the work of sur
veying the country, making the official
maps of the nation, Investigating the water
resources of the country, atudying all ques
tions relating to the safety of miners and
the economical handling of mine materials.
testing building material and many things
of equal Importance to every citizen. The
process of making the official maps of the
country Is full of Interest. One of these
maps is a complete one of the United
States, and when the work Is finished It
will have cost tho nation $.1,000,000. In addi
tion to this topographic map there Is ono

the country. It will be many years before
these two maps are worked out In complete
detail. The whole country already lias
been surveyed In a general way, but these
maps bring it down to a minuteness seldom

The reclamation service, another branch
of the Interior department, has charge of
the Irrigation ot the seml-arld regions of
the United States and the drainage of the
swamp lands of the country. Its labors '
promise to have an increasing Importance
as the years go by. As these lands, when
properly Irrigated or drained, are the most
productive In the Culled States, the In
creasing population of the country will
make It essential that this work be carried
forward with great rapidity. The govern
ment reclaims the land and then sells It
to those who expect to farm it, at a rate
sufficient to pay all expenses of reclama
tion. In the Irrigated country tha big
water projects arq turned over to the users
of the water, who mutually share the ex
pense of the upkeep. The reclamation ser
