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. The Young Women's Christian association will hold Its annual colonial Thursday evening In the association parlors in the Paxton block.

WOMAN U CLUB AND CHARITY 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 children. "Boy Saving" will be the subject at Mon day afternoon's meeting of the social sci ence department of the Woman's club. Superintendent Hayward of the Kearney Industrial School for Boys will be the speaker and will be followed by E. M. Robinson of New Tork, boya' secretary of the National Toung Men's Christian asso ciation. E. F.
