Six very full and very delightful days,
which reached high tide Bt. Valentine's day,
made last week one of the busiest of the
winter. Thla meek the coming- of another
favorite will inspire another long list of
unusual affairs, and, as the heart and
valentine have worked overtime every on
of the last seven days, so the "llttls
hatchet," the cherry tree and other sym
bols of the father of his country will be
employed during the next seven. Foremost
on the calendar is the birthday party of
the Visiting Nurses' association.
Just one more week and part of another
and then Lent. And society Is making tha
most of the few remaining days, too, for
every day until the very last of the pionth,
which will be Ash Wednesday, is written
close with luncheons and teas and recep
tions and card parties galore. Coming late
aa it does this year. Lent will bring the
finish of the season for 190, for April will
be hero before Easter comes, and after
that no one really expects much in. tho
way of Indoor affairs unless the weather
proves Impossible. Of course everybody
will not observe Lent religiously, for so
ciety has many outside of the Catholic and
Episcopal churches, but there will be so
many who do keep the forty days that
only without these and scores who annu
ally leave town at thla time it would be
difficult to have a very large affair without
literally going the highways and byways.
All considered. It has been a lively sea
son, although there have been compara
tively few notable things, and not a few of
the fashionables are looking forward to
Lent with pleasant anticipation of a much
needed rest and opportunity for at least
planning the summer trousseau.
A prominent member of the musical set,
who until her marriage to an Omaha man
resided In Paris, counted among her treas
urea a crust of bread that had gone
through the siege of Paris. On occasions
she has exhibited this unique souvenir to
friends, and . with much pride. Recently
her amall son. who has entered upon his 2d
year, watched such an exhibition with evi
dent Interest, and when, a little later, his
mother looked for her crust It had disap
peared. As no trace of it could be found.
It was concluded that the young man had
eaten it.

Commenting upon the recent meeting of
the social science department of the Wom
an's club, when the labels of the Con
sumers' league and trades unions was the
subject under discussion, and representa
tives of several labor organisations guests,
the Western laborer of February 10 said:
To say thst we enjoved the proceedings
of the session would but faintly express
our appreciation of the meeting, which was
as much of a surprise to some prominent
"labor men" who attended as It was to
ourselves. The minutes of the previous
meeting were read, which at once gave us
an inkling of the business transacted and
a better or more accurate and intelligent
record we have never listened to from any
secretary of a trade union, and the ease
and composure with which the president
and secretary performed their duties would
be creditable to the officers of any union.
Commenting upon the meeting of the
t'nion Labor league Wednesday evening,
when Miss Mary McDowell waa the
speaker, and the general discussion that
followed the address, a prominent club
woman, one largely instrumental in bring
ing the "labor men'and the union labels
before the club at the recent meeting of
the social science department, remarked to
anothtir Interested woman: "I was so sur
prised and gratified at that meeting
Wednesday evening. The men's talk was
all so sane and their argument so logical.
There was no excitement or violent talk.
They all seemed agreed that there should
be no ill feeling between employers and the
employed, and that when trouble arose it
should be adjusted by arbitration."
A better Illustration could not be tfound
of the reason for the existence of the Con
sumers' league, and. It might be added, for
the wisdom of the club women conttmilng
to support that organisation and Us white
label for a time at least. Both the above
comments were made In all seriousness by
representative members of two of the most
potent forces of the day, organised labor
and organized womanhood, and yet each to
the members of the other organisation Is
equally ridiculous. They point to one
great amazing fact the ignorance of each
organization of the other. As men are de
luded with the Idea that women's clubs are
hysterical and unbusinesslike, so the ma
jority of women hold labor unions synony
mous with mobs and violence. Both ideas
are equally wide of the mark. Is there any
thing to occasion "surprise" In the fact
that a college-bred woman should be able
to present minutes that should "at once
give an Inkling of the business transacted"
at a previous meetlpg and that they should
be "accurate and Intelligent," or that an
other woman of culture and broad experi
ence should be able to preside with "ease
and composure that would be creditable to
the officers of a labor union"? On the
other hand, is It reasonable to suppose that
organized labor could have attained Its
present strength, with Its splendid record
for bettered labor conditions and legisla
tion, If Its leaders had not been sane and
logical, level-headed and forbearing? There
Is a great revelation In store for these men
and women in organization. Each has been
negligent of the interests of the other, and
both have suffered for It. It is a fact that
there have been riots caused by labor
unions and that many a club meeting has
been rife with gossip, but Is It fair that the
labor union should be judged by the mob
leaders or the club movement by the Incon
sistencies of Its Inexperienced members?
The ruffian and the disorderly element of a
strike Is as representative of the labor
union as the frivolous, gossiping, hysterical,
shallow-brained woman la of the woman's
club. Both organizations have been Judged
largely by the regrettable element of their
membership and one has suffered no more
than the other. The flaw hunter and the
press have made the most of every oppor
tunity to criticise and ridicule, and unfor
tunately they have been taken too seri
ously by many.
In the same editorial the Western La
borer refers to one of the "drawbacks"
of the Woman's club as an "obstacle to
united practical action In getting tangible
and quick results," namely. Its fads. Con
tinning It says:
But the most detrimental fad In women's
clubs is the disposition in some of them
to establish an excluslveness. caste, rank
or class distinction, because of the social
status or wealth of some of Its members.
Now. the Western Laborer places an
aristorracv of brains, like that displayed
by Mrs. Burhank. on the highest pinnacle
for recognition and homage, rather than
the women of mere dollar and diamonds.
We would have the woman's clubs re
member that we are all descendants of
Adam and daughters of Eve. with one
fnther God who has never treated any
of His children as human stepfathers and
stepmothers' sre said to, do, nor has He
manifested the Indifference that woman
does to the sufferings of her less fortunate
sister or man who preys on his less for
tunate brother.
In this the writer Indicates an even
greater misunderstanding of the women
than by his estimate of theh- capacity.
While the Woman's club Is the most
broadening Institution that has ever come
to women, and as democratic on' organi
zation as the world knows today. It has
not and probably never will entirely eradi
cate the "exelusiveness" referred to. It
Is to be hoped It never will. Excluslveness
is every woman's privilege; It saves her
from uncongenial association, hut to ac
cuse the club woman of snobbishness la
merely to exhibit a grave misunderstanding
of the club woman and the club move
ment. It would be narrow Indeed to ex
pect of the club with Its widely divergent
interests that which the Christian church
has failed to accomplish. The General
Federation of Women'a Clubs Is an or
ganization unique; there Is no association
of men or women to which It can be com
pared. Altruism and the most selfish self
culture have an equal voice In Its councils
and its body. It Is as much for the wife
of the millionaire manufacturer In ita
art clubs as for the wife of the poor
farmer who studies domestic science in lti
country club!, or the student of social
science in the departments of the big city
department club. Naturally, outside of
the club, these extremes have little in
common by mutual consent that must re
main so; but one needs but to attend a
single biennial convention of the General
Federation to learn that In the club there
is but one aristocracy .and that, too. is
recognized by common consent an aris
tocracy of brains. It la the thinking,
working woman who counts In the club
and she Is fast teaching her sister! to rec
ognize each other's rights to even be "ex
clusive" In social matters. As for ac.
ruFing the club woman of Indifference to
the suffering of her less fortunate sister,
that Is little short of slander and no
better proof can be asked of It than the
present petition being made by club women
for an Investigation by the government of
the industrial conditions of women and
"Boy Saving" will be the subject at Mon

ence department of the Woman's club.
