Twenty-five of the women were re- I ceivcd by the President and five in I short speeches presented their argu ment. The President reiterated that as leader of the Democratic party he was limited only to recommending those things on which the party had made up its mind. "We don't want you to break with your party, but we would like you to influence them," said Mrs. Glendower Evans, of Boston, after the President had finished speaking. "Tt isn't a question of breaking, with the party," returned the President, "it is a question of speaking for it." "Well, why not weak to it?" re joined Mrs. Evans as the women laughed. "That's what we want. You have such tremendous power and can work miracles with it." Dr. Walker Argues Dr. Mary Walker, In male attire, argued for the women that suffrage was a state issue.

Never have hens been so wrought up. Oh, my, such a scandal! Several weeks ago David strolled Into the barnyard, arched his neck, preened and promptly caused a. sen sation among the feminine hearts of the Esllnger coops and runwaj*. Mere roosters th<»y have with them al ways; but a white swan Is enough to set any poor hen's heart a-flutter. And David has a way with the ladies. Then, too, the story of David's sor row had been barnyard gossip for some time.

SEES HIS SHADOW—THEN HIS FINISH .v. | ■. - » JACOB HUMMEL CAUGHT HIS GROUNDHOGSIIIP Of course everybody knows tne groundhog saw his shadow to-day. But, perhaps, you didn't know he saw his finish. Well, he did and now maybe old Mr. Winter won't stick around six more weeks after ail. According to the old superstition if the groundhog sees his shadow and runs back into his hole six weeks of blustery weather will follow. So this morning Jacob Hummel, who li\es about a half mile north of the city limits, decided to fool winter by pre venting the groundhog from running back into the hole. Mr. Hummel happened to know where the city's offi cial weather prognosticator had his house and lot, atid early this morning he waited for him to stick liis nose out into the bright sunshine. Sure enough, he came out, blinked around, and then—SAW It. But he didn't scamper back for Mr. Hummel nabbed him. Later he brought him into the city for the Telegraph photograph er to snap. the park superintendent deemed feathered companionship advisable lest the Borrowing,one should give up and fall down the sewer himself. So David went to live at ICsllnger'B Just across the lake. Prom the very first David bossed the barnyard; the fiercest' tighter among the roosters kowtowed; the proudest pullet just couldn't resist him; he didn't have to even threaten to lick anyone. Only within the last few days did David scandalize the barnyard, how ever. It happened thus: One even ing tho daughteTr of the house placed some fresh meat and bread on the plate of Fldo, the house dog; David strolled over and ate most all of Fido's supper. Now he turns up his beak at mere corn and other food of feathered things—and goes In entirely for bread and meat. Didye ever!
