It Let Her Through.
Miss Jane Addams, of Hull House, said in a recent address:
"Some women go in for men's work without men's training. A motor policeman held up a woman automobilist on a country road the other day.
"'Madam,' he said, 'this won't do. You were going fifty-five miles an hour.'
"The woman automobilist laughed sarcastically.
"'Dear me!' she said. 'So I was going fifty-five miles an hour, was I? Well, Mr. Policeman, I want you to know this. I haven't been out half an hour yet. Ha, ha, ha!'
"The policeman touched his cap hurriedly.
"'Pass on, madam' he said. 'That's a new excuse on me.'"
