One of the most pretentious and success
ful affairs that has ever been undertaken

held between 3 and 6 o'clock on Saturday
afternoon at the High school, given by the
membera of the second section of the
senior clans, to the other members, tbe
parents and members ot the Board of Edu
cation. The main hall and library of the
new building were handsomely trimmed
with furnishings loaned by the various
merchants and to these the several socle
ties of the school contributed variety by
each furnishing a corner. The P. O. F.

club had a tent, from which hardtack and
beans (of the confection variety) were

attractive with tbe banners of the society;
the Clio club had an old English corner;
the Natural History society was appro
priately trimmed with furs and heads and

punch and cake was served by girls of the
class and during the afternoon a musical
program waa given consisting of a piano
solo, by Miss Cora Evans; a violin solo, by
Miss Emily Cleve; a vocal solo, by Miss

WOMAN IN CLUB AND CHARITY
The following arrived too late to be In
cluded In the symposium In last Sunday's
Bee of the legislative Work being under
taken by the various stats federations In
tho genersl federation, tbe information
having been aupplled by the corresponding
aecretarles of the various federations In
response to an Inquiry by the editor cf the
Woman's club department of The Bee:
The Massachusetts federation. Including
several thousand women, has at present
before the legislature of that slate a bill
relative to the care of truant girlB, with
good prospects of Its becoming a law. It Is
also Interested In a bill to protect park
ways, public pleasure grounds end boule
vards from disfiguring advertisements and
another for further prevention of cruelty
to animals. The legislature Is still In ses
sion and the bill still to be acted upon,
but their prospects are all good. Last year
the federation succeeded In securing the
passage of a bill granting equal guardian
ship of children to both parents. This bill
in one shape or another had been before
the legislature for twenty years, bscked
by the New England Suffrage association.
All of the clubs are now actively Interested
In signing petitions and like efforts In be
half of educational legislation and that
which pertains to Women and children.
The Illinois federation Includes 233 clubs
that are Interested this year In pushing
an admirable child labor bill. In which
they have the support of some of tbe best
citizens and strongest organizations ot the
slate. It Is understood, however, that this
bill will meet strenuous opposition In ths
senate and Its passage Is doubtful. They
have also an amendment to the compulsory
education law, a bill for licensing trained
nurses and to regulate the practicing of
trained nursing in the state, an act to en
title tax-paying women to vote for cer
tain officers and to participate and vote
In certain meetings and on certain mat
ters, and a bill providing for a colony for
The Colorado federation has prepared
one bill and 'endorsed nine others this
year, and while none of them have as yet
passed both houses, there is reason to be
lieve that seven of them will become laws.
Tho federation's bill provides for the crea
tion of a traveling library commission and
the bills that it has endorsed are: A
community property bill; a bill requiring
registration at school eloctlons; a pre
cinct option bill; a primary election or
direct nomination law; an Improved and
more atrlngent child labor law; the Initia
tive and referendum; a bill pensioning
teachers after twenty-five years of service;
a series of rape bills that protect women
of all ages and Inflict very severe penal
ties; a bill forbidding the use of carriages
at elections. The federation Includes 5,000
The Vermont federation Includes 1,456
women, who this year presented to the
state legislature a bill asking that a woman
be placed on the examining board of pub
lic Institutions, such as asylums for the
insane, homes of correction, prisons and
Institutions where women are confined. Tue
bill failed to pass.
Tbe Arkansas federation has four billi
before the legislature of that state, one
providing for a free library commission and
providing one-fourth of 1 mill of tho regu
lar 6-mlll tax for library purposes; a bill
providing for a reform school; increased
revenue for public schools; to provide for
the Introduction of the kindergarten and
manual training Into the schools; a bill
providing for the eligibility of women on
school boards. The fourth bill haa met
with so much opposition that it Is feared
by the legislative committee that It will
prejudice the legislators against the others.
The year book for 1902-1903 of the Ne
braska Federation of Women's clubs Is out
this week, and the reports between Its
neat gray, blue-lettered covers are Indeed
a credit to the women of the state. Ac
cording to the corresponding secretary's
report there are now 103 clubs and 8,880
members in the federation; fifteen clubs
have come In during the year; twenty-five
cluba hold Individual membership In the
general federation; number of officers and
delegates present at the last annual meet
ing, 128; number of visitors from othr
towns, 100; number of clubs working for
or assisting In the maintenance ot libraries
36 ;N number of clubs engaged In educational,
philanthropic or other outside work, 04;
number of clubs observing Federation day,
21; number of clubs holding, social meet
Among the clubs endeavoring to secure
libraries for their respective towm are:
OBceola, Wakefield, Valley and Douglaa,
that have raised the $40 necessary to se
cure tht traveling library for five years,
and many other clubs are working to the
same end. Seward Woman's club, Falrbury
Woman's club, the Tecumseh clubs, Stanton
clubs, Syracuse Woman's club and Falls
City Soroels are giving financial aid to the
libraries In which they were wholly or
largely Instrumental In securing. Self Cul
ture club of St. Paul purchased and do

Sutton Woman's club has been the meane
of establishing a library at that place; Ts
kamah Woman's club haa a library of 100
books; Keystone Country club has started
a library with $100, and the Omaha New
Book Review club haa sent a box of books
to the western part of the state; Lincoln
Woman's club and Avon club of York have
each furnished the parlors of tbelr new
library buildings and In consideration of
the same have been granted tbe use of
these rooms for club purposes. Ths Syra
cuse Woman's club and the Falls City
clubs have extended tbelr efforts toward
beautifying their public libraries, the tor
mer having been able through the gen
erosity of Its Individual members and busi
ness men to donate $300 for this purpose;
the latter donating a fine library table,
clock, pictures and various Improvements.
project of the Young Women's Chrstlan
Beatrice Is enthusiastic, over an art ex-
hlblt and sale of Copley prints; York has
contributed to the decoration et Its high
school; Falls City Soros Is has arranged for
a lecture course, having rslsed $500 for
that purpose; the Omaha Woman's club
had a series of lectures, free to all club
womeu; It has donated four classic busts
and two figures from Michael Angelo,
which have been placed In the halls of the
Omaha High achool. In addition to all the
local work, tbe clubs ot the slate have
contributed $153.50 within the year for
the education of a colored kindergarten
teacher In the south.
All of this work has been done outside
of the regular work of the clubs.
The letter from the president, Mrs. W.
E. Page of Syracuse, Is replete with help
ful suggestions for the strengthening and
extension of club work. She urges that
each club make room In Its program for
the open consideration of the federation
year book, which has been prepared at tho
expenditure of much effort and lnchdes
the best thought on club work ol the va
rious officers of the federation. "To many
women," she says, "It Is the only tangible
link between the federation and them
selves, as attendance at tbe annual meet
ing Is possible to only a minority of club
women. Cannot the book be put lnio cir
culation in alpbabetical order? Each de
partment leader in the larger clubs can
easily reach her members." The work of
the various standing committees Is re
ferred to and attention oalled to the various
legislative measures now receiving the sup
port of the club women. Another extract
says: "The business of the federation In
all Its branches would be facilitated by
greater promptness and more business
like methods on the part of club women.
Will all seek to remedy this defect?"
BID FAREWELL TO PETERS
Employes of Betnls Omaha Basr Com

Manager M. C. Peters, who retires from
the control of the Bcmis Omaha Bag com

bard made the presentation speech. The

hour when the Saturday dancing class be
gins and Manager Peters thought they had
come to bid him goodbye. He was en
tirely surprised at the token. Mr. Lumbard.
In presenting the Jewel, spoke feelingly of
the esteem felt for the retiring head by U
hands. He dwelt on Mr. Peters' career
from office boy to manager and his untiring
kindness and thought for all in his control.
Manager Peters showed plainly his pleas
ure In the words spoken snd the beautiful
token from the workers he has been direct
ing for so long. In replying to the spokes
man, he thanked them all rlncercly. He
said he felt that tho success of the company
was as much due to their conscientious
work In the factory as to his own care In
purchasing the raw materials. At the close
of the presentation everyone shook hands
with the retiring manager, who must have
felt, as to his arm at least, like the presi
dent of the United States.
The fob and locket are of Roman gold,
the latter being set on one face with a
