When Mrs. Pankhurst, the English suffragette, was in America she met and

became very much attached to Mrs. Lee Preston, a New York woman of

singular cleverness of mind and personal attraction. After the

acquaintance had ripened somewhat Mrs. Pankhurst ventured to say:

"I do hope, Mrs. Preston, that you are a suffragette."

"Oh, dear no!" replied Mrs. Preston; "you know, Mrs. Pankhurst, I am

happily married."

BILL--"Jake said he was going to break up the suffragette meeting the

DILL--"No, Jake was."--_Life_.

SLASHER--"Been in a fight?"
