Prominent Literary Woman, Recognized leader of Her Sex, Commands Attention.

Mrs. Catharine Waugh McCulloch, of Evanston, recognized as one of the most able leaders in the equal suffrage movement in the United States, is at present busy working for her cause with the legislators at Springfield.
Faithfully and persistently, the Evanston leader has been engaged in the fight for equal rights since 1890. Undaunted by defeat year after year, she has continued her mission, and now, in the upheaval and turmoil of party politics, sees victory dawning in the probable passage of the equal suffrage bills at the state capital.
Citizens of Evanston are conversant with the rare talent which Mrs. Catharine Waugh McCulloch possesses. naturally a born leader among her sex, she has gained national repute by her strenuous efforts for equal suffrage. She bears the distinction of having been the first woman in the United States to be elected to any judicial position. Six years ago she was elected justice of the peace in Evanston to fill an unexpired term. She was then re-elected four years ago to this office.
Her literary talents are recognized by the fact that her presence is always sought in every meeting of prominence in club and social life.
