Contract Awarded Tuesday Evening
to a Bradford Firm,
The long talked about enlargement
of the Emporium Water Company's
system was on Tuesday evening con
tracted for. A number of gen! linen
met at the office of the Water Coin-
Company, in Parsons' Bazaar,when the
several bids were opened, Applegate
& Son, of Bradford, being the lowest
bidders. Their bid was $37,000, for the
erection of a reservoir of 1,W0,000 gal
lon capacity, which includes the lay
ing of the pipe to Emporium, the
Water Company to furnish the pipe.
The contractors have s*til Jan. Ist,
1911, to complete their work. Work
will commence at once. The new
reservoir will be located 2:] miles
up Salt Run and it is estimated will
cover over nine acres of land.
We all hope this movement may re
sult in the upbuilding of the capacity
of supply for Emporium has certainly
suffered"a scarcity of good pure water.
Public Address and Coming Con
Under the auspices of the local W.
C. T. U., of this place, a public address
from the topic, "The Legislative Side
of the Temperance Question," was
made by Mrs. Adda Boileau Parsells,

mostly men, manifested their appre
ciation of the address, by quietly stand
ing over an hour during the address
and then waiting to contribute about
eleven dollars to the local W. C. T. U.,
to assist the ladies in advancing the
temperance reform in this place.
Mrs. Parsells was favorably impress
ed by the courteous manner and at
tention of her audience, and went
away very favorably impressed with
the citizens of our town. Many have

examination takes place some lime
next January. Joe is a graduate of'
Emporium High School and a thor
ough scholar, as well as an exemplary
young man. We ha ve not the least
fear but he will pass the examination
with high honors. It is an honor to
the efficiency of Emporium High
School that they teach every course re
quired by the West Point examining
board and two languages more more
than Uncle Sam requires. We firmly
believe the young man will reach the
ambition of his life and ere many j ears
we may expect him to visit Emporium

has never in its history been favored
with an appointment to West Point.

Suffragettes of France Progress.
PARIS, JULY s.—The subdued way to
which French suffragists are conduct
ing their campaign offers a contrast to
the manifestations of their English sis
ters. Both seem however to agree on
one point, namely that the only way
to attract public attention is to do
something out of the ordinary.
England is a serious country, there
fore the suffragettes invent every day
new methods to remind the
masses of the existance of their cause
France has the reputation of a some
what fickle temperament, and the
French suffragists work in a serious
way. The French method seems so
far to have given the best results.
Already a law has been passed graut
iug to woman absolute property in
their earnings. A suffrage society has
been founded by Mme. Schmahl and
neither work nor money is spared to
obtain the franchise for women. The
Duchess d'Uzes is the vice-president
and she gives many brilliant functions
for the suffrage cause.
The views on women suffrage of
some prominent men have just been
published and they seem to be more or
lees favorable in the woman's cause.
Maurice Donnay of the French Aca
demy does not approves of universal
suffrage, but '"since we call it univer
sal," he said, "it must be general if we
are to be logical." The dictionary tells
me that universal moans general there
fore why must half of the population
Victor du Bled, the author of "His
toire de la Societe Franchise," is not
only a supporter of the women's cause
but is a great believer in their abilities.
He is convinced that it is only a ques
tion of time until women will succeed
in eliminating men from politics.
In the next volume of his history M.de
Bled has promised to deal at length
with the movement.
It is the opinion of even the more
sanguine partisans of the women poli
ticians that at first they ought to be
contented with municipal suffrage, at
least until they have acquired enough
practice to deal with the more compli
cated parliamentary questions.
Eugene d'Eichthai opposes a mixed
parliamentary representation. He
suggests the formation of an assembly
of women to take charge of all ques
tions relative to woman's interests.—
