The author, a well known platform speaker throughout western Canada and northwestern United States, is a suffragist, a prohibitionist, and with all loyalty to Canada and the Empire in the present crisis, an anti-militarist. Mrs. McClung displays the art of the public speaker in her skillful use of anecdote. There is a wholesomeness in her hearty manner and in her use of the vernacular.

en stood beside her wondering.

"'E would go!" she sobbed in reply to the sympathy expressed by the people who stood near her, "'E loves a fight--'e went through the South African War, and 'e's never been 'appy since--when 'e 'ears war is on he says I'll go--'e loves it--'e does!"

This will not happen until women are allowed to say what they think of war. Up to the present time women have had nothing to say about war, except pay the price of war--this privilege has been theirs always.
