tary affairs alwaya have the advantage,
for the full dreaa uniform and the national
color lend an Impreaelvenees that other
affairs, no. matter how brilliant, can not
claim.- And, by the way, the military con
tingent promlaea to afford not a llttie that
la brilliant thla winter and exrluslvS. too.
There are aeveral eligible bachelor among
the officers who are already very popular,
judging from the attention they are re

An address by Mra. Harriet Heller on
"Child Life," a talk on "Vinegar Products,"
by Mrs. John Haarmann, and a talk on the
city market hnuae by Mrs. F. S. Owen
constituted tha very Interesting program
at Thuraday mornlng'a meeting of the

department will bo held Thursday after
noon at tha home of Mra. F. B. Bryant.
625 North Forty-first avenue. Perhaps no
topic of the year haa been received with
greater Interest than that presented by
Mrs. Owen regarding the city market house.
She told the women of Its advantages and
urged that they do their part to keep It up
to tha standard of Ilk Institutions In other
cities. Two year ago, when It waa sug
gested that the market house be erected
across the street from the public library,
the Woman's club, through Its city Im
provement committee, promptly and ener
getically took the matter up and had a
conspicuous part In the agitation against
the proposed locntlon. Now that the city
haa Ita market house, the woman who haa
visited It often enough to talk Intelligently
of It la the exception.- It would seem that
the women of the city. If anybody, would
have an Interest In Ita market house and
their utter Indifference since ita establish-.
ment would serm to justify the accusation
that their effort of two years ago was
stimulated by "a love of the sensational,"
rather than any intelligent underatanding
or Interest In the welfare of th city. - What

The following pledge waa read before the

the women urged to consider It:
I hereby pledge myself to refrain from
wearing the plumage of birds, other than
game or food birds, or the ostrich; to aee
that existing laws for bird protection are
carried out and Influence state legislation,
