The Co-Citizens

by Corra Harris

By the terms of her will Sarah Hayden Mosely left all her fortune, consisting largely of mortgages on the farms of Jordan county and on various pieces of real estate in Jordantown, including the local newspaper, to the "Co-citizens league" on condition that it be devoted to the cause of suffrage. As administrators she appointed one man and two women, giving the women the balance of power. In making use of her bequest and in gaining their end the women use questionable methods, including political blackmail, and with the final winning of the vote the youngest and fairest of the board of administrators declares herself sick of politics and ready to settle down to darning the socks of her gallant and devoted lover.
