Whenever Mrs. Catherine Waugh McCulloch makes an appeal she is certain to obtain results. It makes little difference what the issue may be or how much or how strenuous the work is. She always receives favorable replies. And the persons who respond are not always members of her sex as you would naturally believe. Men, women and children flock to her standard whenever she beacons. Last week Mrs. McCulloch asked for persons to circulate suffrage petition blanks. She at once received offers from persons in all walks of life. Among these was a man seventy-six years of age and a stripling of a lad who has not as yet passed his fifteenth milestone. Many others have gone to work, and filled petitions are coming into headquarters like orders for wheatcakes in a restaurant. The women interested say the movement will be crowned with success. If such be the case Mrs. McCulloch should receive the major share of the credit. Her magnetic personality makes for success.;
