100 years ago: Equal suffrage to be presented to Kansas voters in November

February 10, 2011


From the Lawrence Daily World for Feb. 10, 1911:

  • “Equal suffrage will be submitted to the voters of Kansas at the November election next year. This was assured yesterday afternoon when the Senate did the unexpected and speedily passed the house resolution to provide for the submitting of an equal suffrage amendment to the state constitution to the voters of the state at the next state election. The house had passed the suffrage resolution.”
  • “A cat examined at the university and found to show symptoms of hydrophobia had transmitted the disease to two children. Tissues in the cat’s brain were found to contain the hydrophobia germs, and today Joseph and Clara Wilmitz are being rushed to the university hospital at Rosedale for Pasteur treatment. The bite of a cat is far more virulent than that of a dog and the wounds of the Pittsburg children became serious almost immediately.”
  • [Advertisements] “Don’t think less of your system than you do of your house. Give it a thorough cleansing, too. Take Hood’s Sarsaparilla.... Maple Moose to tickle your palate at the Creamery.... Shorthand and Typewriting. A new class in these branches will be organized in the Lawrence Business College next week. This is a good time to start in on the work. Better enroll now.”
