The writer of this column I took Issue.with him and declared half of the men of a town couldn't answer them either. And as the conversation progressed U gathered interest and all sorts of phases ot the subject were brought out. • To this column's Idea, half of the people are ignorant ot tho detail of any sort of government. It is deplorable—Incxcusuble, but it is true. One half of the people refuse to be bothered with government. And that half is not made up entirely of women or of men. It U about fifty-fifty. Of course women should be acquainted with their town'a government. So should men.
