Some yearn ngo, In a letter from
Texas, 1 told an interesting story of
four women at Helton, a little Texas
town, who, having been deserted by
their husbands and thrown upon their
own resources, established a board
ing house which soon grew into a hotel
nnd hnd thereputntlonof being the best
in the state. Iobody but women were
employed, except one negro man, who
did the heavy lifting and took care
of the horses. This hotel became ko
popular that the proprietors started
several others like It at Waco and in
different parts of Texas, and they
were all successful under the cnpablc
management of Mnrthtt McWhlrter.
They started laundries, also, andjot her
enterprises which brought large
profits, and within n few years cnnbled
Mrs. McWhlrter to retire from active
labor with money enough laid by to
support herself td her companions in
comfort during the rest of their lives.
In looking about the country for n
location which suited her health mid
t8te, Mrs. McWhlrter found the cli
mate nnd conditions nt Washington
agreeable. She bought two large
houses In Mount Pleasant, remodeled
them into a single mansion of 40
rooms and Invited to this shelter n

of 30 years old and upward, who are
living what they consider an Ideal
life. Each one who enters the com
munity surrenders to it all the prop

the common fund, which is quite
large. The amount is unknown, and
It Is estimated all the way from $100,
000 to $500,000. They airree also to

suumit to the rules of the organiza
