Two women called at my house one day this week during my absence, and my wife was subjected to a lot of questions thatbordered upon impel tinence. These women were making inquiiies about our being on the roll, and because my wife, who dues not believe in women voting, objected to have her name put on the electoral roll, was given a- half-lecture in scolding words about the evils of drink, and was told that she should help to put it down, etc. They also asked her rny views on the liquor question.
