The Chicago Inter Ocean newspaper published from 1865 to 1914

To decipher the name ‘Tuttle’ (Fri 10, afternoon), compare with ‘little’ 4 lines below ( Sat 11, evening)

VixE

Deciphering Miles' capitals, her capital "T" is very different to her capital "Ls". Her capital Ls were more flourished, as in Sat afternoon "Lunched". Her lowercase t's were usually crossed after than on the t itself. This is highlighted by the way she wrote "little"

A number of Tuttles' lived in Chicago according to the 1910 United States Federal Census
They were members of various clubs including the Chicago Press Club - W F Tuttle member of the Press Club & Frederick Tuttle a life member of the Press Club according to the Chicago Blue Book 1910. Possibly likely a female Tuttle would have been involved in the press in this suffrage era.

Even though the InterOcean ceased publication in 1914 , Ancestry has a Joseph Tuttle in 'Publishing" 1920 census
