THE SHUT-IN SOCIETY
A UNIQUE AND HELPFUL ORGAN
IZATION FOR INVALIDS.
A nriiinrknlile Work Tlint Is llrlng Itoii
by tflifcirllinntesi Mint of Wliutn Arn
Women, to Aid Out Amitlipr Various
llrmirlirs of thit (lood Work.
Fifteen yunrs ngo Mist Jennie M. Drink
water, now Mr. Couklln, of Madison,
N. .1., was shut in her room by n long mid
serious Illness. Tliim hung heavily on her
hntuls, nud she conceived mi idea no sim
ple, mid yet so obviously full of common
sense, tlint the wonder Is that some onu
bad not t bought of It Ioiik before, 8hu en
tered Into n correspondence with another
Invalid personally unknown to her, In order
that they might bu mutually cheered nud
entertained, ThU wiih tho origin of Unit
rcmnrknhlourgaiiizntlonof Invalids known
as tho Shut-in hoclety, which has 11
membership of many thousands in every
country of tho clvili7ed world.
The corrtK)iulciicu to modestly begun
proved io pleasant that It wiih extended to
other Invalids, until In 1SJM tho correspond
ents organized themselves Into tlio Shut
In society, mid tho next year tho society
was incorporated under tho laws of tho
state of Ncw York, with Mm. Couklln as
president. Of course tlio primary qunlltl
cation for admission Is Illness. "To be n
ulTcrur shut in from the outside world
constitutes ono a proper caudldiitu for
membership lu this society," nays tlio con
stitution. Hut there Is n clinracter (nulli
fication also, mid all applicants for mem
bership must "(tend with their application,
it possible, tho nanio of their pastor or
their physician, or of some associate mem
ber of tho society, as an Introduction."
Tho associate members nro not Invalids,
but "being in tender aymputhy with the
ufferlug, volunteer In this ministry of
lovu." Koch associate tnemler volunteers
to correspond with members In a certain
assigned district and Is expected to sub
scrllu) nt least ono dollar a year.
alio society Is mnuaged by an advisory
board composed of associate inemliers. A
might naturally lie expected, tho society Is
largely. composed of women. There Is a
Bmn's department, however, under the
direction of Mr. Will S. Mather, of Chi
cago. There is u nourishing children's de
partment, the members of which nro pop
ularly known as the "sunshine makers."
It la under the direction of Miss G. L.
Lewis, of Uoston, and Miss Joslo A. Jones
and Miss Abbie A. Miller, of Dorchester,
There Is also n department of children
associate members, which havo formed
themselves into n baud called tho Little
Cup Dearer to tho King. It is composed
of boys aud girls from six to nineteen years
of ago, who pledge themselves to carry
sympathy and comfort to somolittlu suf
ferer. It is found that children cuter Into
this work with great enthusiasm, and the
llttlo cup bearers have helped many a poor
and weary sufferer to become a sunshine
Another department of tho society Is the
wueelclialr committee, of which Miss C
O. Ross, of Newark, 1. J., is (tho active
manager. Its object Is toallovlatethocon
dltton of the shut in members by furnish
ing them, when possible, with a wheel,
chair. When a wheelchair Invalid dies, a
little sliver pinto Is fastened on the back
of the chair inscribed, "To the memory of
," and it Is aent back to the
committee, to bo used by soma other mem
ber. Tho King's Daughters are interested
In the wheelchair work, and In fact a num
ber of circles of King's Daughters havo
been formed among members of tho Shut
in society. Many of the members them
selves work for tho wheelchair committee.
Tho library of the society Is one of lu
Important, features. Hooks, magazines
and papers are freely sent to invalids in
every statu in tho Union, as well as to many
loreiKU countries, in l'hllauelpula a Pass-It-Alotig
club has been formed, which
circulates periodicals nmonir Invalids.
Tho Open Window is the name of tho
excellent monthly publication Issued by
It Is an interesting fact that a mission
ary spirit has been developed In tills so
ciety, although its member might well bo
excused it they thought only of them
selves. There is an "Invalid's auxiliary,"
which is now supporting a native nurse lu
tho Margaret Williamson hosnltal at
Shanghai, China, and Is also raising u fund
to endow a bed In the same hospital, to be
Known as the "Stiut-lu society's bed."
Another branch of missionary work douo
by the society Is the writing of letters to
prisoners. About 1,700 letters havo been
sent to Sing Sing alone. They are sent tin
addressed to the chaplain, who addresses
them personally to tho convicts. The namo
mid address of tho writer are not, however.
given to tho convict. It Is the testimony
of the chaplain that these letters have
done much good.
Tho letters written by invalids toother
invalids havo resulted in mauy warm
friendships, and the term "letti r friend"
has become a recognised phrase lu the
society. The organization of the society
has brought out the fact that a surpris
ingly large number of Invalids have lieeu
"shut in" for a long term of years, many
for twenty-five or thirty years. Ono mem
ber of the society, who died last year, bad
been couflned to her bed for sixty years.
The condition of such long term patients
Is apt to become very desolate, as their
tarly friends die or drop away aud they
ere made to feel that they are a burden on
those who are charged with their care.
To Mich Invalids the society come as a
blessed boon, for it not only puts them la
direct communication with mauy fellow
sufferers and sympathetic friends, but the
vaiious Interests of the society give them
something to think of, and thus break the
dreary monotony of their lives.
One of the best known members ot'the
society I Miss Jennie Cnsseday, of Louis
ville, who has lieen confined to her room
for twenty-five years. She has acquired a
widespread reputation as the founder aud
national president of the Flower mission.

St. Nicholas Magazine has been getting
suggestions from Its renders as to a nntionsl
soug. "Tho Star-Spanglo 1 Banner" seems
to have the strongest existing claim to that
honor, but one young person, who objects to
the words but thinks well of the music,
makes the novel proposition to lit the words
of "My Country 'lis of Thee" to tho muilc of
"The Star Spangled Banner." The editor of
67. Kicholat suggest! that she seek out some
quiet place anl try the effect of mixing the
two very cautiously.
The August iVfmon opens witli two very
fine engravings, both nttistic gems. Gilberta
8. Whittle's ai tide, "Some Noted Washing
ton Women," will attract much attuitlou.
It gives excellent photogravures of Mrs
Lieutenant Mason, Miss Kato Deerlng, Miss
Mattle Thompson and various other society
Mis, "A Country Wedding" by Dama II.
Htm ens Is not only n pretty description but
gives many valuable suggestions. "Ivory

dery and the directions for doing it are ren
denil still clearer by good illustrations.
"Dorothy's Devices," by Mlua Irving, will
bo worth rending, "Uses for Odds and
