women and men she made a brief In
formal address, and sbe proved to the
satisfaction of everyono present that

an ease and grace that won and held
"Mr. Bryan. I fear, tie a monopoly
on public speaking In our family. she
began humorously. "In the two years
and more that we were In- Washington
I made It a practice to confine my
public utterances to that one great sub
ject that pervades the whole social
fabric of the Capital the weathrr."
She referred then, briefly, to her re
cent trip with Mr. Bryan to the Cali
fornia expositions and to Crater Lake.
She expressed her delight at the thtna-s
she saw in California, but was moved
even to greater enthusiasm tr her
praise of the beauty and the wonders
of Crater Lake. She then took up a
discussion of the suffrage question, of
which she has been an earnest sup
porter for many years.
Mr. Bryan Eaten.
"But It seems to me to be like car

laughter and applause of. the audience.
Mrs. Bryan aala took up her suf
frage speech and outlined In Interest
ing and charming manner her connec

that she haa made It a rule never to
complicate Mr. Bryan's political posi

worker and a regular contributor for
suffrage some time before Mr. Bryan
openly espoused the cause.
"Men need the votes of women as
much as the women need them." was
her clostng declaration.

TYPICAL REPLIES TO BUYERS'
PENDLETON, Or., July 19.
Portland Chamber of Commerce:
Regarding the benefits accruing
to the merchants of the North
west from Buyers' Week as ar
ranged by the jobbing houses of
Portland, let me say that the
benefits as I see them are many
and varied. It not only permits
of seeing a wide assortment of
specially arranged and specially
priced stocks, but at the same
time gets the merchants of the
Northwest closer to the local
wholesalers. It gives an oppor
tunity to find out first hand
what Is being done by the pro
gressive merchants of this sec
tion. I.' for one, am learning
more and more that closer home
connections mean smaller and
cleaner stocks and consequently
CORVALLIS. Or., July 29.
Buyers' Week Secretary. We
realize the many benefits to be
had at these gatherings. Out
side of the advantages as re
gards buying and instructions on i
business ethics, we feel that
every wide-awake merchant
should attend, if possible, to en- J
Joy a complete change of activ
ity and to visit Portland's retail )
as well as wholesale houses, the ,
greatest market of the North- J
west. J. M. NOLAN & SONS.
