The women are putting Ninteen states of the Union now give women a right to vote for President of the United States. North Dakota led the whole procession of 1917 suffrage victories the first state into the suffrage fold in the National American "Woman Suffrage Association's drive for presidential suffrage. Ohio was the first of the newly victorious states east of the Mississippi to come intov her' own, and Indiana is the first state to let women vote upon their own enfranchisement, though the women of Wyoming territory did this in 1890. On March 6, Governor Brough of Arkansas signed a bill giving women a new and effective form of suffrage, the right to vote in primary elections, Arkansas being the first state to pass this measure. Suffrage a War Measure. Woman suffrage has become a war measure In England, Canada, Russia, and France. Rhode Island is the first state in the Union to adopt suffrage as a part of our national preparedness. On April 19 Wake Up America Day the message ran forth to every village and farm that Michigan women were going to be free to vote, in presidential elections, thus sounding the note of preparedness for the national crisis in the Middle West Then came Nebraska with its eight electoral college votes and its addition of 318,903 women of voting age to the suffrage forces. 'Nebraska's 77,520 square miles of territory has raised the total area in which women may vote side by side with men to a fraction more than half of continental United States. Eleven of the fifteen biggest states in the Union are now under the suffrage flag. The total number of women of voting age to whom complete, or near complete, suffrage has been granted, is now 8,557,308; 48 per cent. of this number has been gained since the first of January, 1917. The total number of electoral college votes which women may participate in choosing at the next presidential election is 172 out of a total of 531. Besides the signal successes in these seven states, North Dakota, Ohio, Indiana, Arkansas, Rhode Island, Michigan, and Nebraska, there have been legislative victories of more or less importance in eleven other states since January. Bills for full suffrage by amendments to their state constitutions have passed the 1917 legislatures of New York, Maine, South Dakota, Iowa. Oklahoma and Michigan. In New York and Ulalne, the enfranchisement of women will be voted on this year. In South Dakota, and Michigan it will be voted on in 1918. FLAG WHERE THE SUFFRAGE Ok-lflio- FLOATS To recapitulate, the suffrage cause has this year annexed 338,314 square miles of territory. Up to the end of 1916, suffrage extended over 1,205,-32- 9 square miles, or 39 per 'cent of continental United States, not Including Alaska. On April 22nd of this year, the suffrage flag floated over 1,543,643 square miles, or 50.9 per cent Including Alaska, whero women have suffrage on the same terms as men, 2,134,527 square mileB, or 57 per cent of the total possessions of the United States, except the newly acquired Virgin Islands, are now under the banner of freedom.

Flags of 22 nations waved before the Senate of the United States on April 20th, as a visible reminder that 'all these nations have given full or partial suffrage to the women of their countries by parliamentary procedure.

Taxes upon business should bo imposed as far as possible upon net earnings rather than upon gross receipts or capital invested.

Another index of the growing superiority of our munitions is the casuality lists.

But the other day we took the whole Ridge and two hundred guns h of with something like the loss suffered by the French.

If you do, your attention is called to the many monuments of Marble and Granite which i nave piacea in the Cemetery at Columbia and surrounding hurrying grounds, which will show you the beauty and durability of the material used in their construction, and attesting the care and neatness with which my woik is dona. Call on O. P. Bustt, Columbia, Ky., and tell him what you want, and he will make you prices within easy reach of all. Give him your order and you will be sure to get the best on the market.

Why can't we kill the men who manipulated the food market? This would make me feel like dying happy if I could help annihilate the gang, and make Wall Street smell like a reeking slaughter pen. Farmers sold their wheat from $1 to $1.50, and then paid $7 for flour. The same as to beef and pork, as well as Irish potatoes.

But I never heard of their taunting every quiet man, nor of them wanting him tried for treason because he didn't see from their viewpoint. In Civil War, the South voted on ordinance of Se cession.

Yet lawyers we have dough-face- d who yearn for German gore, but alas! they have wives, and no man under heaven or among men can filh their places. I have known three presidents of the United States; yet God reigns and the government lives. If there is anybody we can well spare, it is a lawyer who makes war speeches, but don't enlist, or a skypilot of the Billy Sunday :ype, who pumps hot air to stim ulate patriotism, but hangs his slothes on a hickory limb and as enlistment is concerned. As you have been informed, I offered my services as a private to Gov. T. vV. BiCkett, and am certainly no var man. It will be remembered that Grover Cleveland, of so-far est distructions I ever beheld, and trust I will never see such again. I cannot describe it, but I will tell you some things I saw. The dead and wounded had been gathered up, but the ruins of the city were yet there, and it doesn't look like it could ever be cleaned up, and in some places the trunks of trees were standing and pigs and chickens lodged in the broken branches. I saw one horse that had a 2x4 drove clear through it by the wind, and one cow lapped around a tree and one house I saw, had all been taken except one bed room, in which a man and his wife were knelt in prayer during the cyclone. I saw a 2x8 had been driven clear through the trunk of a tree and I saw the pieces of an automobile lodged in a well and they told me the man that was running it had never been found. The dead in all that was time, found was sixty, up wounded 250. One man and the said that he witnessed the cyclone. He was working in a shop and he heard the roaring of it and ran and got under an engine, and he said he couldn't express it as it was but he could see the houses go up about 50 feet in the air and then be torn too pieces, and the elements were flying full of bricks and beds and other ruins of the city, and now and then he could see the body of a human flying with them and some of the dead has not been recognized at all. I saw a large tombstone about 5 feet high and about 2h feet square that had been twisted off about halfway between the top and bottom. It did not hit the main part of the city but it took about 7 blocks wide and I don't really know how long but it took about 500 houses, and it went on straight to Charlestown and struck the main part of the'town which is about 12 miles from Mattoon, and did as much or more damage there. I have ''never witnessed such hard storms as we are having right around me here. On June the 4th we had very near a cyclone at my home. We were in our basement for refuge. It blew down barns, silos, churches and trees but it did not damage any thing at our home and it blew down cribs too, so I guess I have taken up too much space now, but if this escapes the waste basket I will write again.
