She convinces Mrs. Wimble that a lady of her accomplishments is wasting her talents staying at home, and that she should join her club and take a stand tor woman's rights. Mrs. Wimble takes up the work, much to the disgust of her husband and her father-in-law. John decides to break up the little game; he gives a large party. to which he invites James Murphy, a typical Eighth Ward heeler, announcing to the guests that Murphy is to be his wife's political partner. Mrs. Wimble becomes so disgusted with Murphy's attempt to sing and his table manners, that she leaves the table. The climax comes when she sees her cook and maid leading a suffragette parade, coming to her house to notify her she has been elected president of their club. She begs her husband to help her out of the mess and take her away. Mr. Wimble sends a note to the women telling them that Murphy will take his wife's place, and leaves with her and the baby through the back door, while the women are storming the front of the house.
