Also a big line of Opaque Shades Someweelts ago THE UPPER MOINES submitted the • following phrases from Justin McCarthy's "Life of Gladstone" and asked the grammarians which use of the word Burke after "of" was right, or if both were right. McCarthy suys: "Gradually ho came to perceive the truth of that grand saying of Burke's " etc. "Onewas reminded sometimes oi tno saying of Burke, that," etc. THE UPPKK DES MOINES also asked whether it is "the house of Richard Roe" or "the house ot Richard Roe's." Four explanations have been received, and are published for the edification of our readers. MHS. LILLY'S EXPLANATION. The first received was from Mrs. A. J. Lilly of the normal school: She says: The peculiar form, " that grand saying of Burko's," is correct and is explained as meaning, "that grand saying of Burke's sayings." (See Maxwell's advanced lessons in English grammar, Art. 207.) In the second paragraph, "of Burke" is correct because it is the proper substitute for the sign of possession, according to all aU Th°o ri house "of Richard Roe" is the proper form. AS PROF. CARROLL SEES IT. The second reply was from Prof. A. B. Carroll of the Algona public schools: Allow mo to offer a brief solution to your - •• In the use of the ex- Burke," and ui UUL» OD , note that the only verbal difference is the introduction of the first expression by the word 'the, while the second is introduced by "that, with the addition of the apostrophe and s to the word Burke. The difference in meaning is this, for example, the expression, " the picture of the queen," means simply a picture representing the queen, as distinguished from pictures of other pei- sons, and has no reference to ownership, but may bo in the possession of any person, while "that picture of the queen's," means a certain picture owned by the queen, ™ distinguished from other pictures with a number of sayings, but this One is particularly noticeable. The possessive form of the noun needs the addition of the word sayings to complete it, that is sayings of Burke's" sayings, the latter "say- kips" being understood. The second "saying of Burke" rather limits him to one saying that was particularly characteristic, and is also correct. The use of " the" makes it imperative to use the name "Burke," while the use of " that" or " n," but especially " that," must necessarily need the possessive form of the proper noun, " Burke," to make the phrase euphonious and correct.

We carry material in all widths and can make you any notice. in stock curtain size on short G. L. Galbraith & Co. as _ her pouraBlra; and may be a 'picture of any person or thing, whatever. So with reference to tho expressions in question. The saying of Burke," means a. certain saying used by Burke as distinguished from the qnvintrs of other writers or speakers, and does not necessarily imply that Burke originated the saying, simply that he was in the habit of using it. " That saying of Burke's," meant " that saying of Burke's fayinRS," to distinguish it from other sayings originated by him, and means to imply that he was the author or owner of the Baying. Tho latter expression when intensified by the word "grand," and introduced by "that," is the stronger and more definite ^^hfhouse of Richard Roe" would mean the house in which Mr. Roe resides, (although ho may not own it,) ^distinguished from the houses of his neighbors, while " that house of Richard Roe's" would mean a certain one of the houses owned by Mr. Roe, although he might not be occupy- DK it We believe that Mr. McCaithy enow what he said and said what he meant, and that both expressions are correct IF YOU NEEDA NEW COOK STOVE, Pump, Barb Wire, anything in the Hardware line, or in the way of Coal, come and see me.

Lest this article should become too long we will close by referring you to the fol- owingauthors! Lyte's grammar, page.98, Art. 207, and Patterson's Advanced gram- roxamno specialist in grammar, any more than in other branches yet I am confident the above solution will stand the most thorough test. PROP. CONNOR'S VIEW. The third reply was from Prof. A. Hugh Connor of the Burt schools: The sentences you gave, I think, are the following: "That grand saying of Burke's," and "One was reminded some times of the saying of Burke." I think the id£aexpressed by these two.sentences is the same. The limited noun is sometimes omitted, as, "this house is the doctors rhousei" '"This is a farm of my fathers rfarmP 1 "We visited Saint Paul's [church,]" Harvey's Practical grammar Pa The 1 mlme e of'the object possessed is sometimes omitted, when it may be easily supplied. Thus,'Hhis book is Henry's Tbook" "He is at the governor's [house]" Butler's Practical grammar, page 165, Kern. i. The relation of possession may be denoted of, with the objective; glad to state that I have spent some years In that rather more useful than remunerative work and trust the fact of my " having been" will entitle me to recognition if correct. WOMAN SUFPEAGISTS OEGANIZED, A Campaign to Ho »CK»" lor tho Bnl- lot In Town—Tho Ijocal Officers. As a result of the Woman's Suffrage convention last week a local organization was perfected. Mrs.Lenette Butler is president; Mrs. Mary L. Hist, vice president; Mrs. Flora A. Jones, secretary; Mrs. C.A. Ingham, corresponding secretary; Mrs. Madson, treasurer; J. E. BlacUforcl, auditor; and Mrs. Stowo of Burt, press committee. Work will be planned for an active canvass of the county and the national organization will send speakers from time to time. It is expected that tho coming legislature can be induced to submit an amendment to tho people. A LETTER FROM LIZZIE B. READ. One of tho features of tho meeting was tho reading of the following letter from the founder of THE UPPER DBS MOINES, whose first editorial back in 1865 was to urge giving women the ballot:. ELKINS, Ark., May 7.—Dear Friends and Council: Permit an absent member of the circle to send you greeting, as you gather in tho classic halls of our beloved Algona. You will find welcome here as warm and true as ever you can wish. The people have ever been friendly to the highest ideals of society and state. Of the little company who bore tho banner of equal citizenship in Algona a quarter of a century ago—some have passed into the'" Sweet By-and-by"—some are on the retired list—and some yet bear the heat and burden of tho day. Though some have gone from the host militant to the host triumphant, yet the militant host increases in numbers and strength. As you enter into tho labors of the pioneers, may you find that they laid a good foundation, on which you may safely and joyfully build. Although their fond hopes are yet to some extent •unrealized—although the franchise is still denied to Iowa women—their labor and patience have not been in vain. The vino they planted has not been unfruitful. A. thousand gracious influences witness to its divine origin and spirit. Bettor laws, wider opportunities, higher achievements mark a new era of womanhood. Not only is this true of the earlier centers of activity —but even these onoo benighted ends of the earth have seen a light arise upon their darkness; and little mountain hamlets such as the one from which I write enjoy somo of the brightness of this better day. Even that mythical sleeper made famous by tho Arkansaw Traveler finds his dreams disturbed by other sounds than tho rain on the roof. The new woman is at his door, and ;he coming woman is at his gate. Arkansas has a State Federation of Women's Clubs, and much good work is being done along many lines, which cannot be reported in these brief pages. By request of our national officers I send you this greeting from the Quark highlands. May your coming together be joyful in the present, and fruitful in tho future. One of the Old Guard. LIZZIE B.
