A Suffragist's Claim to Life
By FKAXCKS GAHSl !;.
"Why does tho suffrugist make the

the suffrage movement, said the words
after me thoughtfully, laying her pen
down by a half finished cartoon.
"The suffragist," she said slowly,
"makes tho best wife and mother ami
always will make the best wife and
mother, because she Is the thinking
woman of the world today.
"The thinking woman Is always the life
woman, tho Interested and interesting

"The suffragist is looking her domestic
life squarelv in tho face. She Is realiz

mother did It that way. She Is under
standing that the ways of doing things
should change with the change of condl

what sui rounds It. She thinks about
her husband and children, what tiny
wear and where it conies from, what
they eat and where It comes from, md
how to get It to them. She thinks about
where her children play and what effect
the place has upon them mentally and
"She sees clemly that the American
homo Is no longer sot apart by Itself,
as It was 10O ears ago, producing nearly
everything It needed, from light to sho
"She understands that her home nnd
every home In tho fnltcd States Is a
center, around which a million mighty
trades and Interests revolve. Great fac
tories make the clothes her children
wear. If sho would protect the health
of her children she must tegulate the
health of tho factory' workers.
"She realizes that the bakeries that
supply her with bread and pastry, the

Sh.e understands that the care of the
