Mr. Curtis wns cepprlnlly Interested In

the lum-hron committee his name be
not overlooked. Mo Is an advocate of

In the British militant movement. He
was not Irt the least deterred when he

Mounted on an ordinary sonp box tn

hurst argued and pleaded for woman suf
fiago In America to more than ljO per
sons at the luncheon at the Home.
Prominent American Women.
Mrs. I'ankhurst pointed to Jane Ad
oams, Ella KluKg Young and other emi
nent American women In support of hot'
contention that woman should have the
ballot. These women, she said, have
risen to high places, are potent factora
for good. Kach Is doing a great and In
estimable work in advancing the world
to better conditions morally, mentally
and politically. Their services gladly are
accepted, their abilities 'and their value
to the state are recognized, yet they are
barred from citiacnshlp by an antiquated
legal system.
Jane Addams, Klla Ftagg Young and
other noted American women have told
Wis. Pankhurst that they desire the vote
he said; that their efforts would be inert)
Cfective If they possessed all the rights
and privileges of. citlaenshlp.
"They need the ballot and they should
havo It," said Mr. Pankhurst. "It is
accessary to malie their vote more ft
lectlve; to make It more effective- than
U ever can be so long as they are denied
Xull citizenship."-; '

" 'Sherlocko the Monk.' tha greet detec
tive, whose adventures are being pictured
dally In The Pee. at no time In his career
ever had anything on me," said I'nlled
States Attorney Howell. "I had an ad
venture the other day that would make
Sherlocko look as much like a detective
as Dan Iahey, only something In my
adventure . bobhtd tip and spoiled my
chance to break Into print. Watso Dick
inson and myself arc investigating that
'something' now and when we discover
it we will have a great yarn for the
Several days aso I received a telephone
message from Assistant rnlted States
Attorney A. W. lne of Lincoln, telling
me to be on the lookout for a man ahout
60 years of age: deaf: long whiskers;
who had escaped from the Old Soldiers'
home at Milford and hud appeared In
Lincoln, stating that he had been robbed
of his property and pension money by
some church. The old man claimed to
bo a personal friend of President Taft
and threatened tjjat unless tho United
States attorneys took a hand lu his case
he would report the matter to tha chief
"The day after I received the telephone
call a man answering tho exact descrip
tion of the escaped soldier appeared In
my office, complaining that he had been
robbed ly tho church and threatened nie
with Impeachment unless I helped him.
He was deaf and his whiskers tallied ex
actly with tho ones Lane spoke of, bo
when I had heard his story I lost no
time In notifying the authorities In Mil
ford. Tho reply I received from them
stated that they had found their man and
that I had mado a mistake. Now, I
wonder how .1 happens that a man who
must be the escaped soldier's double,
would liavo the tamo complaint and
threaten the same punishment as the
replica who appeared In Lincoln."
Mr. Howell believes that the Milford
authorities are right, for they have known
their man for years, but he Is at a loss
to account for the man who appeared at
his office, and the affair has mado such
an Impression on 1:1s mind that ha Is
Investigating It.

Putting Holiday Spirit Into the Home
Of all places in the home the dining room is the one that must
have most attention each year when Thanksgiving and Christmas come round in
the cycle of time. This room must radiate hospitality ami good cheer. Nothing can help so wonder
fully in bringing about this atmosphere of geniality as furniture of solid character and comfort.
We have a very beautiful selection of dining room furniture that not only gives an atmosphere of
comfort, good cheer and hospitality, but which uIro reflects the charming spirit of those olden days
when our forefathers trod through snow clad fields with the Thanksgiving turkey over their
shoulder and came up. to those rugged houses, where were bred the staunch, free-spirited men who
later built up this most perfect of nations. .This funiture is displayed on our floors, and even one or
two pieces of it will add dignity and comfort to the dining room for tho home-coming days of those
who shall return to get their turkey and to hang up their stockings.
