I have voted four times for President, and my daughter has voted tive. "This league once for our Chief Execu- is not being started for a fad, but with the purpose of in- augurating a campaign ot practical ed- ucation in politics. I have watched at the polls; I have counted votes after the battle was over, and I have made a house to house canvass in Colorado in my. district to see that every woman got out and voted. Mrs. May Preston Slosson, who vot- ed for McKinley Roosevelt, when was a resident of Wyoming, will also take an active part in the work of the League. She was invited to be- come a candidate for Congress In the far Western State, where both demo- crats and republicans offered to place her name on the ticket, which would ensure her election. She declined the however, preferring to stay at home and care for her children. "I think, after thirteen years of ob- servation of women voting" said Mrs. Slosson, "that the strongest argument in its favor is the development of the women chemse'lves. They get in closer touch with public affairs, and they don't neglect their homes to do it either.

Lord Alfred Douglas replied with heat that his father wrote him in a mann that was unjustifiable, since the ordinary relations of father and son had ceased between them when he was very young.
