Washington, Oct. 6. The closing
session of Congress was marked by
thrgehour speech by Senator La
Follette, answering his critics, with
two hours set aside for senators who
wish to speak on the subject.
Senator LaFollette asserted that
the "war party,", besides carrying on
their campaign of "libel and charac character
ter character assassination" among members of
Congress who vote against war, are
attempting to suppress discussion of
war issues and intimidate people by
invading their homes and unlawfully
putting-them in jail. The senator's
speech was carefuly prepared and he
quoted at length from Lincoln, Clay,
Webster and m Sumner in support of
his contention, that a. member of Con Congress
gress Congress had the right to assail the
policy of the government.
LaFollette read carefully from his
manuscript. It was predicted his well
chosen words would not evoke the hot
replies as he planned.
"It was unfortunate for the coun coun-'
' coun-' try and the senator from Wisconsin,
that he lent himself to the promotion
ofihe ideas and desires of the Ger Ger--

in answering LaFollette.

carelessly regarded by men, an office

What do you find at your fireside

shall not answer because all the
world knows what you find. Writers ""r
of all ages have told in song and
story of the holy atmosphere of love
and cheer which cling about you and
envelope you at twilight, but now the
working woman comes home. No, in
all the world there is no home for
her. Like the Savior of the world she
repeats as she seeks shelter for the
night: "The foxes have holes, the
birds have nests, but I have nowhere
to lay my head!" But she finds the
place where she sleeps which is often
several blocks from where she eats.
It is often cold in wiffler, unheated,
often improperly ventilated, jammed
against another building, dark even
in the daytime. God's sunshine is
shut out of her abode as out of her
heart. If the season be summer, the
room is hot for the same reasons that
help to make it cold in winter, poor
ventilation, and fresh air shut off by
other buildings. The walls are often
bare, sometimes they are hung with
faces of men and women now promi prominent
nent prominent in the social world, where fifteen
years ago this woman's sweetness and
cleverness and her bright and grac gracious

but now the present her evenings
are empty, and she spends them alone

older woman at a movie show. Re Regardless
gardless Regardless of the degree of this wom woman's
an's woman's skill and usefulness, nobody loves
her, she is homeless! Would it be so
with a man? No, somebody would
make a home for him. Twice it was
rumored that this woman was to mar marry

and politics, but as the years passed
on these men had married women far

measure womanhood, but those wom

of all evil. They got the man, and
with his own shrewdness and their
money, he bought whatsoever he de desired,

flesh, for there are those woman who
would sell!
Often, too often, the man who in
youth would have loved her had for fortune
tune fortune favored her as had nature, now
tries to buy her. Maybe this heart heartless
less heartless (?) business woman stood in
some sheltered spot and listened to
thetale of love from this same man
who has fallen so low with the pass passing
ing passing years that his ideals have perish perished,
ed, perished, the words of love still issue from
his mouth, but their origin is not of
the soul, but of lust. He really never
loved his wife. He," too, has paid the
price. His life has been empty, or
partially so. This woman who has
worked by his side through the years
knows life as he knows it. Nothing
has been kept from Her all-seeing
eyes. No shield of wealth, power, po position,
sition, position, love, has held a veil before her
vision. The man takes from his finger
a costly jewel extended in his out outstretched
stretched outstretched hand. "This for a kiss," he
says; "just one." She looks at it, she
looks at him. She hardly blames him
for the depravity of his soul. Condi Conditions

man's life. Ambition has cost him a

dear price as it has always cost those
who put it before love and honor.

State is taxed heavily enough now'
without having to blow in $20,000 or
more on an unnecessary session of
the legislature.
It is impossible to refrain from
commenting on the news constantly
sent but from Tallahassee. A few
weeks ago the Tallahassee Democrat
contained an alleged interview with
an army officer, who was on special
duty at the state capital,' in which the
said officer was credited with several
remarks regarding the appointment
of young Captain Catts. It seemed
to the Star very strange that an
army officer should talk like a poli politician
tician politician or a real estate promoter, and
it commented to that effect on the
interview. Congressman Clark had
the matter investigated with the re
sult that the officer said he had made
no such. remarks.

after all the old blackpowder Spring
field rifles for their home guards. For
the last ten years the movies have
been using; these guns in all their
battles from Bunker Hill to the Bal
kan war. A member of the Duval
home guards who' was here the other
day, told us two companies of that
force were armed with these guns,
and the county commissioners of Pi
nellas have sent Maj. Lew Brown to
New lork to purchase enough of
them for that county's battalion. The
old Springfields were the best army
guns made until smokeless powder
rifles came into use. They are very
effective weapons in the hands of
those who know how to use them
There are a couple of them in the

oome oi tne atts papers are
shrieking that there is a move on foot
to eleqt a legislature pledged to im impeach
peach impeach the governor. We do not think
any such move is contemplated, and if
it is it has no backing from sensible
men. T,he Catts papers are simply
trying to work up sentiment for the
governor by creating a feeling that
he is being persecuted. We think the
people of this state are going to be
more particular than ever before
about what sort of a legislature they
elect. If Catts behaves himself the
balance of "his term, it will not inter interfere
fere interfere with him. If he returns to the
course he started out on, and keeps
it up, almost any sort of a legislature
would impeach him. He has behaved
very well the past few weeks, and
for the sake of the state let's hope he
will continue to do so. It is no credit
to a state to have a governor the

Hamilton Fyfe, a noted English
war correspondent, writes as follows
for Lord NorthclifFe's papers:
I have seen Britain begin war,
France begin war, Rumania begin
war. I saw Rusfia in the early stages
of the world upheaval; I saw Italy
after the itai;ans had made ud their
mind thev ,vere in for a lon strueie.
j not for thf short campaign which was
m tne tnougnts or most or tnem
when they began. Now I have added
to my memories that of the United
States beginning war. I am not sure
that, when in some future day I look
back upon these memories and see all
that has happened in its true perspec perspective,
tive, perspective, I shall not then set down my
American experiences as the most in- l
teresting of all. i
Britain went to war in a hurry;
France, with a sigh of apprehension. I
Russia sang marching songs with a
fierce lilt in them and wondered what
it was all about. Roumania light-:
heartedly fancied that occupying
Transylvania would be no harder than i
the taking of Jericho after its walls 1
had been trumpeted down.
I found Americans neither up in the
air nor down in the depths. They
neither sighed nor sang. They had no
illusions about the war being quickly
finished off, nor were they in doubt
as to the reasons for their entry into
it. They were not hurrying. They
were treating war as a matter of bus
iness-and applying the ordinary rules
of business to it.
The other allied nations began like
adventurers. The Americans began
like business men.
The allied nations which have been
in the war from the beginning I can
say this because I belong to one of
them and because I have had unusual
opportunities to judge of their spirit
and ideas plunged into war as into
an adventure. They ran to stop the
ruffian who had determined to disturb
the, world's peace and the other ruf ruffians
fians ruffians who were persuaded to join in
the ringleader's attempt to gain world
dominating power. They ran because
they saw that their homes and lives
were in danger. France honed to
save herself from invasion. Britain
hoped to save Belgium. Russia hoped
to save Serbia. In spite of their run running
ning running they were too late.
Of the allied nations which joined
in later both Italy and Roumania
found, also too late for the avoidance
of bitter disappointment and heavy
defeats, that they had not prepared
as they ought to have prepared for
meeting so dangerous and so desper desperate
ate desperate a foe as Germany. They had done
more wisely to wait still longer, until
they could strike a heavier blow.
The United States did not run to
war. This country has never cared
for European entanglements and
would have left the European nations
to settle among themselves whether
Strength should rule and not Justice.
For a long time it bore patiently with
the insults and injuries of the Hun.
Only when these became unbearable
did the American people rise and,
with the. gesture of a man who only
fights upon strong provocation, draw
its sword and set to work to grind it,
throwing the scabbard away. It
would not begin before its weapon
was edged and formidable.
War to this American people was

own fashion, not interfering, not be

not leave them alone. "This is our
world," she said, in effect. "You must
do as we tell you or we shall hurt
you.'? Then the patience of the
United States was exhausted. "Very
well, if you will have it so, we will
fight," said the United States. And
without hurry, at a steady marching
pace, making preparations for a vast
effort and for a long time ahead, the
United States came into the war.
Nothing businesslike about the uni

beginning. Recollect the red

out on a battlefield, and watching
them, I argued with a French friend
on this topic in the first weeks of the
war. "We shall never give them up!"
he cried. "They are our tradition,
our inspiration, our panache." Of
course, they gave them up.
The other allied nations made war

There are differences of opinion as
to whether this is not too severe. But

Other allied governments are afraid
of this party or of that interest. The
government of the United States
does not seem to be afraid of any anything

about politics. It is thinking about

Now what is this womaa's mission
who stands as a representative of 'nine
millio nof her class? (In using this

number I quote Mrs. W. J. Bryan inj

an address given in Jacksonville,
FJa., January, 1917). I shall answer
as I se It. Nearly two thousand years
ago Christ said: "He that is great greatest
est greatest among you shall be servant to
all." The truth of that statement
still holds today. She that is great greatest
est greatest among you shall be servant to all.
Consider woman's work in our own
. country. This work may be done
partly by women leading a sheltered

life, but if she is. doing woman's work
from a worldly standpoint she belongs
on the world's honor roll.
Four millions are assuming the
burden and responsibility of govern government.
ment. government. Millions of others are clamor clamoring
ing clamoring for these privileges. Bookkeepers
and stenographers by thousands, go
out each day to be man's helpmeet in
the affairs of business, to take from
his shoulders the tedious details.
Thousands bend over the beds of
the sick and dying as nurses and doc doctors
tors doctors to heal the body and bring peace
to the mind.
Thousands of others rise before the
sun shows its big face in the east and

quietly pass through the homes of

those more fortunate than themselves,

removing the household rubbish, pol
ishing the floors and furnaces, mak
ing cleanliness shine like godliness.

As the housewife lies snugly in bed
thousands of others move swiftly into
the kitchen and prepare the food
which shall sustain her and her entire


All day long the family is tended
by- the efficient and willing hands of

the working woman. When the hus

band has been fed the cook and house
maid relinquish him to the steno

grapher. The children are sent to

school where everything that many of

them ever learn is taught them from

cleaning their finger nails to speaking
correctly, the language of the country
in which they are born. When you
stop to think of it, is it any wonder
that man sometimes compares his
wife to one of these ants of civiliza

tion, and finds her wanting, and un

less the working woman proves

stronger than the man therev is an
jother divorce to buy.

I predict as the world's reason un

folds the working woman will be con

sidered its greatest asset. In a few

years she will sit in equality with man

as a director of governments in the

western hemisphere as she has al

ways oh the thrones of Asiatic and
European countries. She will be the
chief educator of both sexes through
all ensuing generations. She will

nurse the sick back to life, and hav

ing always been strong in faith and

'religious fervor it shall be her point

ing finger jsvhich will direct our
thoughts upward, sanctifying our
lives and labor in such a way that

work will become holy, a privilege
bestowed as the reward of efficiency

and talent such talent as enables a

man of obscure rank to rise to the

favor of a king.

When work becomes holy, service a
privilege, idleness and uselessness

will be a shame. Pride and ambition

will achieve power through the most

efficient labor possible to the human

race in every field, of industry, and
not through the mere possession of

wealth! When work is regarded as
holy, and efficiency as a sacred gift,
the lust of wealth will pass away and

the working woman will receive from
the world in the same ratio in which

she serves. Men will consider her
friendship a privilege, her love life's
greatest fulfillment, for from her

they shall receive an understanding
love, this woman accustomed to a
man's world as was that savage and

primeval being who sought suste

nance at the side of man while she

bore his offspring through those thou

sands of years which have at last

evolved the civilized race.

useless man ana useless woman

must pass out of existence. Useless
waste of time, useless waste of wa water,
ter, water, useless gifts of nature shall be
no more. Laboring men and women

will together be the crowning glory of

the human race. Acres now barren
will become flowering gardens, and

food producing areas, and whether
men or women be without families or

ties, since all work together to make
a perfect whole, then will they be

necessar yin the divine scheme of

things, and the working woman will
be regarded with the same reverence
with which the sheltered, woman is
today regarded, and with the same

concern with which we regard any

other thing absolutely necessary in
the social, business and financial fab-

t ric of the world. When this happy

era dawns on the earth the power and
glory of nations will no longer evist
in the maintenance of thousands of
armed men, and shining ships of war,
but a nation's power will be reckon reckoned
ed reckoned in proportion to its scale of ser service
vice service toward all other nations, and its
glory will be acceded to be, as in real reality
ity reality it has always ben, the millions of
toilers who render this service. In
this era of peace and good will when
the working woman rises early and
lies down late, the earth will have
been made better and more beautiful
each day through her presence, and
all the earth will concede that she
who is "greatest among you shall be
servant to all."

The Terrible Pains in Back and

Marksville, La. Mrs. Alice Johnson,
of this place, writes: "For one year I
suffered with an awful misery in my back
and sides. My left side was hurting me
all the time. The misery was something
I could not do anything, not even sleep
at night. It kept me awake most of the
night ... I took different medicines, but
nothing did me any good or relieved me
until I took Cardui .
I was not able to do any of my work
for one year and I got worse all the time,
was confined to my bed off and on. I got
so bad with my back that when I stooped
down I was not able to straighten up
again ... I decided I would try Cardui
... By time 1 had taken the entire bottle
I was feeiing pretty good and could
straighten up and my pains were nearly
all gone.
I shall always praise Cardui. I con continued
tinued continued taking it until I was strong and
well." If you suffer from pains due to
female complaints, Cardui may be just
what you need. Thousands of women
who once suffered in this way now praise
Cardui for their present good health.
