-in Michigan and Minnesota, established in 1875; in New Hampshire
and Oregon, in 1878; in Massachusetts, in 1879, in New York and Ver-
mont, in 1880; in Nebraska, in 1883; in Wisconsin, in 1900; in Wash-
ington, in 1886; in Arizona, Montana, New Jersey, North Dakota and
South Dakota, in 1887; in Illinois, in 1891; in Connecticut, in 1893,
and in Ohio, in 1894.
  Two states permit women to vote upon the issuance of municipal
bonds-Montana, established in 1887, and Iowa, in 1894.  Louisiana
gave all women tax-payers the suffrage upon all questions submitted to
the tax-payers in 1898. In 1901 the New York legislature passed a law
providing that "a woman who possesses the qualifications to vote for
village or for town officers, except the qualification of sex, who is
the owner of property in the village assessed upon the last preceding
assessment roll thereof, is entitled to vote upon  a proposition to
raise money by tax or assessment."


                        THE TELEPHONE.
  Feb. 12, 1877, Prof. Alexander Graham Bell's articulating telephone
was tested by experiments at Boston and  Salem,  Mass., and  was
found to convey sounds distinctly from one place to the other, a dis-
tance of 18 miles. This telephone was exhibited widely in this coun-
try and Europe during that year, and telephone companies were es-
tablished to bring it into general use. Edison's carbon "loud-speaking"
telephone was brought out in 1878.


          BROADENING THE COUNTRY PREACHER.
  To give variety to the mental outlook of country preachers, the
Massachusetts Agricultural College at Amherst has this year con-
ducted a summer school. Lectures on farming as well as on sociologi-
cal topics, have been given, and these were supplemented by field
trips and demonstrations in dairy work, cattle-feeding, and work in
greenhouses. The preacher is thus relieved of his helplessness when
he comes in personal contact with his parishioner.  The Washington
Herald thus comments on the project:
  "It is the lack of sympathetic and vivifying companionship that
these preachers most feel. Their routine associations may not be
with men of their own plane of thought, but with persons both in-
different and uninformed. The danger is that a preacher in such
environment may drift backward toward the shallow, superficial,
and commonplace, until his mind becomes out of touch with sub-
jects that elevate and that widen his outlook and influence. The
