In her sunny olllco on 6th avenue, high
above the nolso and bustle of New York
city, sat airs. Carrie Chapman Catt, the
world-famed stiff rage leader, and chat
ted on the subject which she has made
her llfo uork.
"One of the signs of the rapid Increase
of sentiment which points tho way to
final victory," said sho slowly, is mo
chango of attitude of the press of this
country. Tho suffragists wclcomo tho
Evening LuDOEn nnd Its progressive at
titude upon this question as one of tho
most Important factors In the coming
"Did the result of tho recent elections
surprise you very much?"
"It Is difficult to give anything either
spicy or now." Bald Mrs. Catt. "but we
aro not very much surprised that, ns n
result of the recent elections, we did
not get more than two States. We
havo observed for years that every
time wo win a victory, the first ef
fect of that victory is to lose what comes
next In the list of campaigns The reason
Is that when the women vote, It Is always
wrong in tho estimato of some people!
If, for instance, It could be proved that
the voto of the women turnea a mw
Republican, the Democrats, generally
speaking, will not approve of woman
suffrage. If those votes turn the State
Democratic, then tho Republicans will
not approve.
"Every time a law la passed In a West
ern State, and it la claimed that the
wemen secured that law. there are those
In the East who do not approve of that
law, and consequently do nol approve of
tho right of women to express their
opinions. It requires tlmo to recover
from the effect of this Influence, and to
get popular sentiment aroused once more
to tho point where it recognises that a
woman is a human being, and as such.
has precisely the same right to express
her opinion about matters and things as
any other, human being, even If the
latter happens to be a man!" and Mrs.
Catt smiled In an amused way. '
"Do you consider that the woman suf
frage movement Is progressing pretty
"We are convinced that our movement
Is traveling onwards at a rapid rate de
spite the fact that many of our States
aro not yet clvlllred enough to actually
grant the vote.
"What pleased you most In the recent
tcr's Mill In 1S4S, the Eastern population
was nlrendy spoken of as congested, but
the great West wns an unexplored
wilderness. The East had 200 years start
ocr the West. When two centuries have
passed over the West. It must bo. thnt
tho commercial centre will be on the
I'nciric coast Instead of on the Atlantic.
It Ik not nt all Impossible that our chief
dealings will be with tho Orient rather
than with Europe! Whatever happens,
woman's suffrage reigns for all time
ovci the great West.
"What proportion of the United States
has ndoptcd woman suffrage?"
"A littlo more than half tho entire ter
ritory of the I'nlted States Is now cov
ered by woman's .suffrage," replied Mrs.
Catt eagerly. "Next year we nrc go
ing to voto on woman's sunrage in
four Eastern State-. Now York, Penn
sylvania, New Jersey and Massachusetts.
If these four States could be lifted up In
a block, and set down In the middle of
Montana, there would still be territory
enough left In that great State to make
tho big State ot Indiana, while the littlo
State of Rhode Island could still have
a considerable acreage left.
"Before the war Abraham Lincoln said:
'This nation cannot exist half free and

anti-slavery movement. We may now

the people, and the other half ruled by

that their secret devotion might be re

A very new arrangement for Milady s

made of an absorbent material, and sat

incloses the dine, so that It can be hung

becau-e the little disc Is ndt unattractive

rtomalnes arc dangerous chiefly because
they move In such mysterious ways their
wonders to perform. They are of such
n shy and retiring nature that nobody
knows just what caused them, where to
look for them or how to avoid them, and
the confusion that results Is mado Just
n little moro confused by the close re
semblance of other and less harmful
germs and symptoms to tho chief of
their tribe, J
Dut one thing about ptomaines has been
established beyond question. They are
born ot putrefaction, they live In filth
nnd their favorlto breeding ground Is
nnlmnl refuse or, . falling that, decayed
meat tissues.
The connection bolwcon ptomaines and
shellfish is obvious. Shellfish arc nil
Bcavcngcrn. Tho more delicious they nrc
tho more open-minded and catholic thoy
aro sure to bo In food matters.
Severe cascn of ptomaine poisoning re
sulting from shellfish have done much to
sprend the Idea that they are dangerous.
Therefore somo people avoid them alto
gether; othors eat them Indiscriminately
nnd trust to prqvldcnco to Btand between
them and the consequences. Lobsters,
crabs, oysters, clnins or shrimps tnken
from waters contaminated with the
sew ago of n city or n large town aro
always dangerous. The sewago Is thick
with nnlmnl refuse nnd the crustaceans
are as suro to get It as they are to be
served up In our restnurants nnd lobster
pnlnccs. A thousand may be eaten with
out harm, while tho thousnnci-anu-first,
looking exactly like his neighbors, may
be reeking with ptomaines.
The only insurance ngnlnst ptomaines
that the shellfish eater can depend upon
Ir nbsoluto knowledge, first, that tho
savory morse! Is fresh; second, that he
canto from clean waters.
The first condition can bo met by buy
lug tho shellfloh alive. If thev are for
tho homo table, or Insisting upon ade
quate nssuranco of their homo address
nnd age, If they are ordered at a res
taurant. If you cannot live without oysters In
a big city, yon are comparatively Bafo
If you eat them only nt u placo which
guarantees Its wholo supply ns being
from uncontamlnated waters nnd which
opens the oysters freshly for each order.

The New Coat Hanger
The woman who is limited In her
closet room, or who Is an apartment
dweller, and can use every bit of apace,
will npprcclnte the new hangers. They
require no screwing or tacking, for they
are mado to slip on to the edgo of tho
shelf. In tlila way your woodwork Is
protected, too. When pushed on the
hanger, has tho appearance of tho bars
usually put In closets of new houses.
This Is tho first part of tho set, the other
consists of two folding garment hangers
nnd two trouser nnd skirt hangers.
The traveler will find these sets the
most serviceable of arrangements. The
five pieces can be packed In a small box,
and carried with very little troublo. In
this way light dresses, men's clothing,
eenlng gowns, dainty shirtwaists, etc.,
can be hung up ns soon as you arrivo
In an hotel. You will greatly enjoy your
reflection In the glass, compared with
that of tho others who show the unrala

Does First Love Last?
M it Is tho real thing, that Is, tho
actual love of a man for a maid. It
when tho scales fall from their eyes, or
whe the real affinity crosses their path,
the unthinking world around their .Is apt
to smile cynically and say that l oe
is doomed to fade almost as soon as
bYot there are numberless Instances of
first loves that wore nlso tho loves or
the lifetime of their possessors, and these
mo more than enough to convince us of
the foolishness of scorning early devotion.
Therefore, though It, may bo sadly true
that where wo first love we seldom, IT
ever, wed, yet tho opposite is often enough
the caso to inspire each of us with the
hope that ours will be a first love that
will last.

Some one asked the other day if Philadelphia had not done enough
when she sent the food-laden "Thelma" on her errand of mercy across
the seas. Philadelphia will not have done enough, nor will
ever hive done enough, until EVERY MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD
HAS GIVEN SOMETHING toward the aid of people who are starving.
Another Ship The
Thanksgiving Ship
will be secured in a few days, and ,gJStotte,l5
be no delay in her setting out on the track of the ineima, wun ner
S; nfd?scrimination nor selection possible as to who shall and
who shEfot be .expected to give. The Spectre;of Starvation hovering
over BtHcken Flandera makes no selection nor discrimination It does
not say-ou Shall be excused because you are a child' ; nor, "You shall
be relieved Kuse you are a sufferingwoman"; nor, "You are excused
because you are a man laden with years !
Death, in its most terrible form, is no respecter of youth, nor age,
nor condition in life.
And so the call of Mercy is no respecter of persons.
People are starving and they must be fed, and so long as this
condition is true Humanity makes a levy and an assessment from which
none can be excused not one.
YET TO GIVE THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS to help to save the destitute
people of Belgium from a death by starvation.
It is hoped, it is expected, it is believed, that all of these will come
foi'ward. '
But It Must Be Done Now Hunger Gives
No Extension of Time
Let us send the Thanksgiving Ship before one of us sits down to a
Thanksgiving Table 1
