- By James B. Morrow.
Washington, June 19. 1915.

ICTURE a man, who as a 1303’.
lived on the banks of Rattle-
snake Creek and ate big, thick,
Indiana soda biscuits, split in
‘ . the center, with pork and mo-
lasses between the pieces.

Then imagine this boy, after he has
grown up and become famous all over the
‘land, as weighing, say, 250 pounds, and as
.having a voice as deep as the notes of a
horse-fiddle, a chin as broad as the blade
of a hatchet and hands as large, and al-
most as hard, as cobblestones.

And finally, suppose you called on this
man, and, finding him in his shirt sleeves,
should cou1ageously ask his opinion in
respect to woman suffrage? What, do yOu
1think, would be his answer?

' The boy was Moses Edwin Clapp, and
"than. of course, is his full name at pres-
ent. P1 om Rattlesnake Creek, where his
.father was a log gei, he‘— mov ed to VViscon-
