The emotion- of peoples are stronger than their logic. The schooner, the sleeping tent, the camp lire and the great outdoors make a charming picture. Add to ihis the zest of spreading suffrage propaganda in hitherto untouched communities, and Ihe sentimental appeal of this journey i- Irresistible. Suffragists are offering a portion of their vacation time. County resilient- urge Us m select their district; and best of all. our most vamvd friends send us money. This is undoubtedly one of the moat economical projects planned by the Just Government League, and promises to he mosi far-reaching in its results." Money! Money! Money!
