Chicago, Aug. 10 - No man wants to cook and do housework, and a universal strike by women will bring them to time.
Mrs. Florence RICHARDS, of Ohio, in an address at the Lincoln Temperance Chautauqua, in Austin, was advising women to go on strike unless permitted to vote.
If we refuse to do the housework and take care of the children, she said, we would be led to the polling places on our husbands arms before a month. Then the saloon doors will cease to swing.
