The rich* ft < luh In the world Is
the Miami Woman'* club, according
to Mr*. H. J. Halley, who returned
Inst week after spending the winter
In Florida. The following facts are
Mrs. Bailey’s story of their origin and
The club's library of more tbsn If),
1)00 volumes, the only library In the
city, had a humble beginning. During
the summer of 1600 a few friends
started meeting together to «ew and
read. Later they organised the
"Ladles’ Afternoon club." Book* were
bought by the members, read and ex
changed until, finding themselves
with a goodly number, the Idea of
starting a library occurred. The re
sult was a supply of books and no
place to keep them.
An appeal was made to Henry K.
Flagler, builder and owner of the
Florida Fast Coast railroad, In 1609
Mr. Flagler gave them the northwest
corner of his Hoyal Palm park. A
building coating $12,000 was erected
to house the library and the club.
Both were soon Inadequate. The
property, however, had become very
valuable, ltestrlctlons In the deed pre
vented the club from selling, renting
or mortgaging, nnd since making the
gift, Henry Flagler bad passed out of
Kilter Itntti Bryan Owen.
At tlila trying period In tfie iluli'n
history, It lit h Hrynn Owen beoime
president with tile avowed purpose of
having those restrictions lifted. Hh"
succeeded. Ily negotiating Willi the
offlelula of the F. Is. I', lull loud, tin
deed wns changed to give the club
the right to sell, but with the provlx
Ion ihni the new building should be
known ns "the Flagler Memorial Id
brnry and Woman's Club,"
The chili recently sold Its properly
for more than I.Kih.oiiO and Is now
seeking a building site
The greatest thing Hie woman'a
clubs of Florida have done has been
to secure from tho slots legislature
