flashing eyes that something was terribly wrong In an instant he had dashed up to the d blacksmith dour across the street and with n few words 1 could not hear leveled his pistol at the blacksmiths head The poor fellow begged piteous ly for mercy hint without a tremor or one relenting glance young Der bin fired and the unfortunate maw fell to tin ground with a groan x I was routed to the spot in horror and amaement but my ryes refused to tense the man who could byone art of ungovernable passion cast aside Gtallthought of leis future and wreck i a lift so full of promise as his With a glance

handsome face of the mane whom naysimple words would condemn There he sat with his mother oneshide of his scale of destiny but alas soon to be overbalanced by the law my testimony and justice Ills gift tering eyes were fixed upon me as if to say lie merciful little girl you know not what you do The tear streamed down my fate and between mysobs I told my simple story which must have carried

as a lawyer his conscience did not trouble him he vain Ily tried to impress on me that I had done only my duty and that my ideas about it were all a mistake- sIA if it were only yesterday I could in imagination see his pale handsome face and reproachful eyes as they earned him awny to prison I think the shock to my sensitive childish mind completely hushed nit whisperings of justice and the fact only remained that by my Words I haii doomed a fellow mortal to lifelong misery and shame My heart ached for him when we heard that once he laud attempted to escape by jumping from a boat into the

JournalJ RidhtstBattleBy LILLIE DEVEREAVX DLAXE- U Trtjidtnt of the JVft YorlCity Ltjljlat League RACTICALLY the woman suffrage battle is won I cannot remember the beginnings of the struggle but in days that are well within my recollection the announce ment that a woman proposed to address a public meet ing was likely to be greeted in any company with bursts of langltter while that a woman should desire to vote was regarded as something so monstrous as to be almost incredible The strange things of the past are the commonplaces of today- It is the womens clubs that have done the work for us I doubt if the woman suffrage organizations are any stronger now than they were a few years ago I believe they arc less strong They miss Mrs Stan ton and the active work of Miss Anthony But irresistibly if indirectly and unconsciously the womens clubs associations leagues and federations are pressing the cause to victory In the early days of Sorosis woman suffrage was a forbidden topic esteemed dangerous to handle Now I scarcely pass the doorway of a womans club that I do not hear hearty applause greeting scale mention of the need of juster laws for women some tribute to the pioneers in womans cause some forward look to days when women shall be fully recognized by the government This cordial attitude of the womens clubs makes it more difficult to get members for woman suffrage associations When a woman is asked to join a club whose object is political she says Why should I It only means more dues to pay more papers to read more speeches to which to listen I get all that in my literary club WOMAN SUFFRAGE IS THE LEAVEN THAT IS LEAV ENING THE WHOLE WOMANS CLUB LUMP And the enor mous growth and spread of the clubs mean the organization of a sex A sex that is

EAGLE Illlniil Man lla a Night Adventure- In the Wood Whloh He Will Jot Soon Forget A hand to claw battleI with an eagle was fought by Harry T Allen of Galesburg Mr Allen now has the bird in Chicago where it is being stuffed and mounted by n taxi dermist und will stun go to ornament his home Mr Men xvho is a cigar manufacturer went on n coon hunt with a party of Galesburg friends in the Klleston xvoods near Roseville III The party had a fair bunch of dogs mostly coon dogs and svgs expecting to get results in short order The dugs were ranging the xvoods for coon and were exceedingly busy for about txxvo hours Along about mid night the party heard the dogs haying and barking at a furious rale in the woods off toward the creek a quarter ofa toile nwuy- As the party approached the spot where the dugs were assembled they came to the conclusion that the dogs had simplyi gone crazy as they were not near a tree but were instead running up and doxvu the hank of the creek and barking at some big dark object on a stump ten or fifteen feet fuss the edge It was a dark night and at first the coon hunters could nut distinguish what the object was Mr Allen said it was a hind of some sort probably an owl but in any event he intended to get a closer view Taking his ax he waded in toward the bird while his companions held their torches high on the bank to THE BATTLE IN THE WOODS give him as much light as possible lie says- I waded in toward tile bird intend ing to kill it with a knock on the head with the ax and I was a little bit hasty as I feared it would flyaway before I could get it In my hurry to reach the bird I did not take the care I should and as I struck at it with the ax my foot slipped on the mud and I fell IJy the time I had recovered my footing the bird got into the game in earnest I made another lunge at it with the ax and it made one at me with its beak getting me in the leg I missed toy stroke The bird had a good nip on me and it xvas close fighting with the hinds huge wings going all the time like thrashing machines- It was up to me to do something and do it quickly if I did not want to be ripped into strips by the bird I reached for its neck with my left hand nnd put a strangle on it to make the creature let go of my leg and in that I was successful only in a measure The bird loosened its hold with its beak and took hold of my hand with its claw Its talons went clear through my left hand and by that time I was as mad as the bird I took n good purchase on my ax and aimed the next antI last blow with some care and got the birdon the head He was out for keeps but that claw of his was gripped on my hand as if it would never come loose I dragged the whole outfit to the hank nnd then the boys forced open the claw on my hand and released tne It

humanity whore I can bo alone a little while with nature I walk for a few miles over the sandy desert and at length halt ir front of what proves to bo a deserted Mexican home Everything about it goes to prove that it is fast crumbling back to mother dust Thorn are no beautiful lawns nor higharched inviting gateways I no fencoitl fact nothing to keep out even the unwary intruder The wild flowers and viens that voluti tarilyeutwiued their tendrils about the doorway in the budding SPringj time have lost their s plexion and drooped their feeblo thirsty heads and died And 1111 this late December afternoon there remains of them little more that a memory Standing alone far out m this great desert this house looks to be only the conference hall of spooks and ghosts Everything about the place seems to be so dreadfully still I grow quite nervous and tremble to think of it But taking now courage I manage to push open the decaying door and walk thru its empty chambers with ateathj steps No sound of hoof or song of bird withoutnor note of human voice or hurrying of ghostly feet within is heard All is still save tho ringing echoes of my own foot floor JIsteps upon the doby look about the walls and they art barren I turn to the little open windows thru which no doubt the eyes of hope havo longingly gazed upon the world There too was the fireplace with its broken hearth stone where Spanish love has gath ered in tho evening or where po haps some Indian chief was wont to sit and smoke and court and woo and win again his darling squaw But lo their tapers have burned low and gonoout I All now is desolation and so death like As I turn to go out I stop to listen and thru the upon door rings the faraway tones of a howl ingwolf As these things crowd up before me thick and fast thoughts curie to me that hitherto were foreign and I must coulees that a feeling steals over me that I shall not soon forgetOn my homowary way I notice the desert is barren and stony A few scraggy weeds and still fewer gtragling blades of Spanish bayo net raise their burning thirsty heads above the sandy soil There may have been a time when the torrents of water that hewed the gullies with no uncertain Lund run down tho sides of the distant Rock j ies and made this desert to blos I som as a rose There may como a time when the blessed water will again bring to fruition the possi bilities of New Mexico But at present thrives only tho Spanish bayonet with its tall waxen clus tors of creamy blossoms in sum mer time for bees to plunder and birds to swing and sway in tuneful songBut it is getting evening The sun reluctantly closes his great wonderful eye in the west the shades of evening glide across the plains like a host of silent cavalry The windswept stretches of sun dried earth lio brown and crumb ling In desolate stillness for with tho going down of the sun oven the zephyrs die away in exile The sleek scorpion bare and brown as the warm earth against which it flattens raises its head with confi dence in the coming dust The horned toad darts in and out of tho clumps of Spanish bayonet in search of insects going to rest All else is enveloped in unearthly still ness for the day is done Only the wanderer such as I in search of peace of harmony of a quiet mind is abroad in the laud As the shades of evening take on a darker hue I am overcome with fatigue my head falls heavily for ward and upon a stone I sink down to rest In the distance I hear the clang of a bell in a Catholic stee ple tolling tho hour for mass yonder I see a belated Mexican making rapid strides for his little doby home Nature is busy pil lowing away her thousands to rest I watch the grasshopper turn him self about to find a suitable resting place for tho night the little finches retreat to the cotton wood boughs the prairie dog howls out his evening thanksgiving and skulks away to his mansion in the ground and the tarantula turns to the centipede and bids him a plea sant good evening and runs far across to his castle in the sand At length I awaken from my reve rie by the gentle call ofa shep herds voice hurrying a thousand lambs to a distant fold Such is the picture But
