ties of the woman herself but to all

After her appointment, Mrs. Fel-

American-born woman to accept a
seat in the British Parliament, but
noble old Georgia experienced no

48 states in the United States, har]
a Governor with courage to say so."
Mrs. Felton is; the widow of a for-
mer Congress3man from Georgia and
for 50 years has been active in pol-
itics. She was one of the earliest
advocates of the political adlvance-
ment of women, and in 1886 took the
stump in the interest of prohibititon.
"A strong nation," declared Mrs.
Felton, "is (dependenit upon its wo-

women of this country grasp tlieIr
