One good reason for Woman Suff-
rage la the fact that In every bit of
literature sent out by the liquor crowd
against prophlbltlon they Invariably
place Suffrage and prohibition side

are not afraid that Woman Suffrage
will affect their hellish grog shops
why do they fight It bo persistently?

DEATH NOTE TO
MOTHER FROM SOLDIER IS
A WAR LESSON
Chicago. June 18. Mrs. Mallnda
C. Edward of Carrollton III. has re-
ceived a letter from her son now
dead in Franco which is a fit lesson
In patriotism for the whole Ameri-
It U an appeal from beneath the
sod ot a hero's grave to awaken the
manhood ot the country.
The letter was written by Lieut.
Adrian C. Edwards Just before he
went Into the battle In France In
which he met his doath on May 4
Lieutenant Edwards was 34 years
old and was a lawyer In Carrollton
when he entered tho Officers Train-
ing Camp at Fort Sheridan last
August. He was sent to France
shortly after he received his commis-
sion and was assigned to the
Eighteenth Infantry. His death was
reported in the casualty list two
The letter follows:
"Somewhere In France.
"My Dear Mother: I am about to
go into battle and have instructed
the company clerk to send you this
letter In caBe I became a casualty.
The receipt ot this letter by you will
Indicate that I am either with my
God or a prisoner In the hands ot the
enemy. Since I will never become a
prisoner of the Huns It I remain
conscious and able to fight It Is
doubtful if I will ever be an Inmate
ot a German prison camp.
"So do not grlevo that I am among
the missing but rather rejoice that
you have given a son In sacrifice to
make the greatest military caste of
all times lay down the sword; to
save civilization to prevent future
wars; to punish tho Huns who have
disregarded every law ot God and
mankind and whose only God Is the
god of war and military force and
to mako the world safe for democ-
racy. Spartan Advice
"I desire that you viow the matter
in the light and spirit ot the Spartan
mothers ot old who when their sons
wont forth to battle tor freedom and
their natlvo land said to their sons:
" 'Either come home proudly
bearing your shield before you or
"War was absolutely necessary on
the part of my country and although
I was 34 years old and nobody ex-
pected me to go yet someone had
to go; someone must make the sacri-
fice; sorao mother must lose her son.
In the light ot these facta and know-
ing our country's great need I vol-
unteered and have never tor one mo-
ment regretted my decision and will
not although my life and the useful
career must end.
"Life Is not the highest boon ot
existence; there are Ideals that aro
superhuman. Interests greater than
lite Itself for which It Is worth while
fighting suffering and dying.
"It possible after the war I
would like my remains to be brought
back to America and interred at
White Hall. I have provided well
for your support as I haye a $10000
Insurance policy with the govern
ment and several thousand with old-
line companies. My friend Thomp
son and Jessio havo these policies
and other valuablo papers.
"Good-by mother I will seo you
in the next world. You may know
that I died fighting for you my
country and atl that life holds dear.
