A news dispatch from New York, dated election day, disclosed the fact that women, on an average, take 44 seconds less time to vote than do men. A woman voter can mark her ballot, regardless of the cutting she ruthlessly, in 3 minutes and 17 seconds, while it takes a man 4 minutes and 3 seconds to do the job. Although women are alleged to have a penchant for changing their mind, it is evident they do not exercise this prerogative to any great degree in this instance.
