The St. Louis Woman club la. about to

having been set ss the date for the cele
bration of the event and It la to be a cele
bration, tot., one that promlrea to be a so
cial nfTair of more than ordinary conse
quence. The club Includes among Its mem
bership of 200 some of the city' most
fashir.nable women, Mrs. James Blair
among others. A a member has expressed
it, "some are deep thinkers and others
orly brilliant butterflies." The clubhouse
Is one of the old St. Louis mansions and
Is located out on Washington avenue in a
res'ful, quiet neighborhood that la still
easily accessible. The rooms are spacious
and the Interior finished In walnut and
mirrors that extend from floor to celling.
The furnishings are massive and rich,
after the fashion of that period of sub
stantial comfort. There are in all twenty-
odd rooms, the first floors being admirably
arranged tor a clubhouse, the drswing
rooms opening together In an Ideal assem
bly salon, and on the opposite side of the
hall there Is a parlor and dining room. In
addition to these, and a plan that savors
strongly of the social. Is a ballroom to be
erected on the rear of the lot. It will be
100 feet long and forty feet wide and la to
coet $10,000. It will connect with the drive
way through a porte cochere and will be,
when completed, the finest ballroom In St
Louts, which Is saying much. Upstairs
there are large rooms. 16x22 feet, that are
to be used as clubrooms snd meeting
places for the various literary clubs thst
may rent them for assembly occasions. All
together the clubhouse promises to be an
Ideal one, one of which St. Louis club
women may well be proud when they come
to entertain the biennial of the General
Federation next spring. '
It Is recorded of th women' clubs of
Memphis. Tenn., that their work has been
of a most practical nature and that nu
merous public philanthropic and other In
stitutions stand to their credit, such a the
handsome new city hospital, a home for
aged men and another for aged women
kindergartens, day nurseries and numerous
other things of like value. While this Is
Indeed an enviable list of achievements. It
Is after all nothing especially unusual, ex
ceptlng that the women of Memphis are
especially fortunate In having gained the
co-operation of the municipal authorities
and others that has made It possible to
carry out their plana To the observing
person It Is an old story, for wherever the
woman's club Is found Is found also an.
effort at least to establish such provision
for the comfort and well-being of the de
pendent. There are scores of cities and
towns over the country that boast similar
Institutions and many others, for which
they are Indebted to their women's club,
and besides all of these, there Is the score
of popular movements rapidly gaining
prestige and Influence, many of which have
had their origin, and all their chief source
of agitation. In the women' organisations.
Among these are the Consumers' league,
Juvenile courts, legislation for abolishing
or controlling child labor, civic Improve
ment, the preservation of historic places
and of native forests, the establishment of
libraries and museums, legislation for pur
food and other thing equally vital to the
well-being of the people. In fact, there
are few citle or villages, and even the
rural communities are rapidly being In
eluded, that have not similar achievements
that ar th outgrowth of th organised
effort of the women's clubs.
There will be a union meeting of th
Presbyterian women' missionary -societies
of ths city held at th Second Presbyterian
church on June 24.
Th park ommissioners hav assumed
the responsibility of .the flower garden on
the lot next to the public library, started
last spring by the city Improvement coin
mlttee of th Woman' club.
At th recent meeting of the Woman
Christian Temperance union $60 was voted
to be expended for temperance literature.
This is to be circulated about the city
among the fire engine houses. Salvation
Army headquarters and worklngmen'
hotel. Volunteers' headquarters, and soma
left with the ministers for distribution
Th next meeting of the union will be
educational and will be conducted by the
franchise department under the superln
tenden,- of Mrs. Patterson. The Income
from tht high school lunch stops with the
close of school, but the financial condition
of the union Is good and the summer work
will be carried on as usual. The member
ship Is larger at present than for some
time and the condition of th organisation
more generally prosperous.

iVHAT A BLIND MAN CAN SEE
William E. Greg; WriteaaVtrylntereitior
and InstructiTt Book.
EYES NOT ALL ESSENTIAL TO HAPPINESS
Sorely Afflicted Mao folate Oet How
Mock of Brightness Life May
Hold If the Heart
William H. Gr-ps, a graduate of the Ne
braska Institute for the Blind, has written
a book entitled "Secrets cf Fate Unlocked,
or From Possibility to Reality," which he
affectionately dedicates to his deceased
wife. Mr. Gregg waa born In Winona
county, Minnesota, In September, 1S7, and
without sight. As a child he was a great
lover of nature, and though deprived of
that faculty which to thoee who see seems
so essential to Its enjoyment, his happiest
hours were passed In the woods, for he
could hear the birds sing and enjoy the
perfume of the flowers and the sweet, pure
air. In his book he pleads for a closer
communion with and a more general study
of nature, believing that this would Induce
a higher and purer standard of living.
With a mind close in accord with high
Ideals and an unlimited amount of courage
and perseverance, this man has accom
plished much, not only along educational
lines, but In the more material things of
thla life, for as a scholar and a business
man he has been eminently successful.
The great desire of his lrfe now Is to In
fluence others to a higher and more noble
ambition, and a thoughtful reading of hla
accomplishments will Inspire, not only
those who ere unfortunate, but all to stop
nothing short of the highest realization of
their Ideals and hopes.
Misfortunes never come singly, and Mr.
Gregg was no exception. When a small
boy he was carrying an armful of wood
across an Ice pond and slipped, dislocating
his right shoulder. It was thirty-five miles
to the nearest physician. His parents
thought It simply a sprain and treated It by
bathing, etc, as Is usual in those cases,
but the effects ware permanent and he has
also from that time been partially disabled
In thla way.
Hot a Book of Benson.
In February, 1S9S, Mr. Gregg delivered
an address before the Lincoln High school
for which he received the heartiest en
dorsement and highest praise from Instruct
ors, parents and students. Instructors and
parents appreciating the Influence his help
ful thoughts and suggestions would have
over the students, and the students Inspired
and spurred to a more determined effort
by a knowledge of what he, thowgb blind,
had accomplished, resolved to strike the
word "can't" from their vocabularies.
One must not get the Idea that tne book

Mr. Gregg says his first Idea of the sun
was that it must be a very large lamp

to Imagine what held It up. His mind

to a prairie country, after having always
been accustomed to a wooded one, waa
quit a novelty and a great change even to
this sightless lad. From then t the pres

known In the leading town of th state.
He entered the Nebraska Stats Institution
for the Blind at Nebraska City November
2L 1S77. and was graduated with the class
of 18S6. This waa the first clssa to be grad
uated from the Institution and the class
motto was "From Possibility to Reality."
One haa only to read his book to discover
With what perfection he has attained the
fullest realisation of this motto.
Mr. Gregg haa - traveled much, and the
reader has the benefit of his experiences,

and customs of the people, etc Under the
