HEROINES OF SIEGE MEET
Two Missionaries Who Suffered at Pekinsr
Come Together in Omaha. .
FIRST REUNION SINCE THAT PERIOD
Mrs. F. D. namewell, Oae of tke
Wif, Telia How Christianity
Has Elevated Her ls-
' tere at Orient.
Just an Mn. F. r. Qamcwell left tha
rostrum upon the close of her address At
the missionary conference at the First
Methodist Episcopal church Thursday
morning a woman stepped forward and
embraced her. It was Mrs. Balnbridge of
Council Bluffs, who was with Mrs. Game
well during the slogs of Peking, China,
and suffered with her all the privation
and anxieties of that trying period. This
was the first neetlng of tha two women
since those momentous days and was joy
ous to both.
Mr. and Mrs. Oamewell and Mr. and Mrs.
Bain bridge were members of the besieged
missionary and legation colonies. W. K.
Balnbridge was the second secretary of.
the American legation under Minister Con
ger and Mr. Game well was chief of the
fortifications staff during the slega at the
legation compound, 7
Wtara of Chins Aristae.
Mrs. Gamem ell a address pertained al
most exclusively to woman's Work in ths
China mlsslanry field. She told of the
deplorable condition of tha women of
"The standing of a nation Is based upon
tho standing' of Its women. The work of
the ' Christian, missionaries has dona and
is doing much for the elevation of the
Chinese women. 1 have here in my hand
an article which a few years-ago would
have been an Impossibility in China, Had
some one told you then that such a thing
should exist today you would have been
laughed to scorn as a dreamer. It is a
woman's Journal, published at Peking,
China. It gives an account of woman's
work for the emancipation of women, both
spiritually and materially."
"This paper Is published at the .subscrip
tion price of 10 cents per month and Is de-.
Uvered at the homes of the subscribers. It
has already taught the Chinese women that
the world Is round, the beauty of truth and
the folly of Chinese women bandaging their
feet. Reading rooms are now establlshod
In Peking and If the patrons of those rooms
are not able to read, readers are there to
read for them. The siege of Peking awak
ened China to the existence and beauties of
modern civilization and the necessity of the
Chinese people adopting the practice of
modern civilization. In fact China has
turned squarely about and Is now making
the most marvelous strides In all the graces
of modern civilization, Christianity and all
that can contribute to awaken it from the
sleep of past centuries into the great active,
busy world of today."
Conference Closed Last Klsrht.
The other speakers of the morning session

esting review of the educational work of

MVnOSTOSB 'AS A GOOD EXAMPI.K
Bishop McDowell Draws a Lesson
from His I'sefal Ufa.
The concluding session of the conference
was hold lust evening with a program, the
chief part of which was a biographical
sketch by I'.lsiiop W. F. McDowell of Chi
cago on the work and achievements of the
Immortal Jlr. David Livingstone, the Scotch
missionary, The bishop's talk had an Inter
esting and sympathetic touch and was
scholarly throughout. The church was well
"Tho present generation apparently does
not know much of David Livingstone, al
though he is still a living theme. Ills
name Is one to conjure with," began the
bishop. "The name of David Living
stone makes a tremendous appeal to man
liness. He was born In a period when many
groat men wore coming Into the world,
when great things were happening and
when there was Immense activity. In ex
plorations. "At the age of 10, while working in a
factory, LK'lngstone was studying . his
Latin, and at the age f 3D he was deep In
philosophic study. Boon afterward mis
sionary biography stirred his blood and he
made a solemn covenant he would devote
Ms life to the missionary cause. When
Robert Mnffatt returned from Africa and
told Livingstone he saw 1,000 smoking vil
lages where the word of God had never
been. Livingstone exclaimed. 'Anywhere,
so long as It Is forward.' referring to his
anxiety to help the benighted."
The bishop drew a vivid picture of the
devotion, heroism and wonderful work of

mm II CLUB AKD CHARITY
A very welcome announcement comes
from the local biennial board of St. Tsui,
to the effect that a plan has been devised
whereby the visiting club woman la to be
spared all that Inconvenience and anxiety
In connection with her baggage that h
teen a part of all previous biennials. Til
president of the St. Paul Union Depot com
psny has promised to provide a separate
room for all biennial baggage, and that It
may be taken care of Immediately upon Its
arrival. To make this possible a red label
six Inches long and two lnchog wide will
be Issued, and on this Is printed "Conven
tlon O. P. W. C, St. Paul." This label Is
to be pasted on all biennial baggage and
In case of club women being overlooked
In the distribution they are advised to Im
provise suoK a label. Use a strip of red
paper of the dimensions named and print
on the Inscription. The chairman of the
baggage committee emphaslxes the neces
sity of using thla label or the substitute
suggested, for unless It Is In evidence the
bnggHge will have to go through the regu
lar bnggnge room and the heavy travel at
that season of the year will occasion delsy.
Another convenience will be the estab
lishment of A postoffice station at the
armory Vhere the meetings will be held
and club women are requested to remember
that mall sent to that offlce must be ad
dressed "In care of O. F. W. C, Armory,
St. Paul." It has been suggested by the
chairman of the bureau of Information that
visiting women who wish to get money at
the St. Paul banks provide themselves with
New York exchange Instead of personal
checks and with letters of Identification
from their home banks.
One of the subcommittees on registra
tion will prepare and post In a prominent
place as soon as possible an alphabetical
list of all visitors at the biennial. A com
plete cataloguo will be prepared and filed
for reference of all women visiting the
meeting. No badge will be Issued to any
one until credentials have been presented
and signed for. -.
The club Journals are full of announce
ments preparatory to the convention. Sev
eral special excursion trains from various
parts of the country are being arranged
for. New England will send Its usual large
delegation, which will be divided Into a
half dozen excursion parties, with h many
different routes for the trip. Tho southern
states are Interested as never before and
will send large delegations, while from the
west and all other sections come Indica
tions that more women than ever before
will attend the eighth biennial.
The literature department of the Omaha
Woman's club held its annual election of
officers Friday, March 30. Mrs. Harry
May was olucted leader and representative;
Mrs. C. R. Glqver, Mrs. Joseph Polcar and
Mrs. Edward Johnson . were elected Brit,
second and third assistant leaders, re
spectively, and Mrs.. Theodore Mayer was

elected leader for the coming year. , There
will also be sven assistant leaders, who
will euch have charge of two meetings dur
ing the year. Mrs. Healey will represent
the department oryjhe directory of the club.
'7 til V
' Through the General Federation bureau of
Information, Mm ' LVdla Avery Coonley
Ward, one o Jhe biennial" committee,
makes ' the following suggestion to tlub
women regarding the much-discussed bi
I think mutual interest. In different sec
tions of our country, would be greatly
stimulated If there could be practical ex
hibits of the thlna that women are In
terested In and are trying to promote.
When they are described, in nddressos or
even in print, much imagination is needed
for appreciation, whereas, if the thing is
actually seen. It ' becomes of vital interest.
Take, for example, homespun materials,
such as bedspreads, table covers, etc., that
are tnudo by the mountain women In Ken
tucky, Tennessee, the Carolinas Hncl other
states, the rag carpeting and mats made
in many sections of the country, the bas
ketry and metal work and many other
kinds of work; If each state made an ex
hibit of Its products in such lines It would
enlighten siKter states In addition to its
For example, Massachusetts hns devel
oped embroidery, cross-stitch, weaving and
basket making to a high degree, and the
Visible evidence of this development would
probably raise the quality of work through
out the country. The books that women
have written, the music they have com
posed, tho things they hav invented all
these would be of great interest. It would
not be difficult to arrange for the taking
of orders for articles exhibited, nnd It Is
quite probable that the expense of the ex
hibits would bo met by sales. I would not
conflno the Fhowing to what women have
made or Invented, but I would. If possible,
add articles not well known that are dis
tinctly useful to women, such us the Alad
din oven, the bread machine (a woman In
vented the llrst and best),! the cake mixer,
etc. The bread mnchlne results in an Im
portant saving of time and strength, and
the bread li makes Is more wholesome than
that kneaded by hand.
These are merely suggestions. The ex
hibits may be extended indefinitely, but
tltey should be confined to things that are
of distinctive value to women and to- fami
lies. 1 hope it may le arranged to de
velop then Into "traveling state exhibits."
NEW MOTOR CAR isSUCCESS
Eleventh Prodnct of Isloa rarifle
Shops Makes Fine ShoTrlna; oa
. Initial Trip.
The'Uriion Pacillc railroad officials have
been experimenting with their new motor
car, No. 7, Just out of the shops. This
car Is mi improvement on the previous
luotois cars in that it Is specially designed
for cljmbing grades and has several new
arrangements, tho most conspicuous of
which is the ventilation of the cars, the i
windows being round, similar to port holes
In -teamshljis, and is air, water and dust
proof; car has also side entrance in middle
of car Instead of at the end.
The first trial run made to Valley and
back yesterday developed good climbing
ability over the grades and a speed of
forty miles an hour with ease. The new
method of ventilation fairly well avoided
the close and sometimes foul atmospheric
conditions so often encountered In electric
and other transportation cars, sufficiently
so as to predict complete success In this
direction. The vibration and noise of the
engine was largely eliminated and the
mechanism of the car worked splendidly
on tills trial run. The Union Paclfi officials
were much pleased and believe that the
final result of these experiments, which
ere not yet completed, will show this car
to be the most perfect car of the kind In

have been had the old squad kept out of
brush league bull Inst summer. At the
close of the last college season, when Iowa
had by far the strongest bunch of players
It had had In several years, plans were
made for at lenst two eastern tripa for the

Runkle is making a hit with the fans,
as well as hitting the ball. He batted 1,000

Perrine and Wamble are fighting for the
third base position and Pa is giving each
an equal break, playing one and then the
Stone Is starting out well and may have
his eye right with him again tills season.
At any rate he made four hits In a recent
Dolan's injury did not keep him out of
the game long and he Is taking up Ills new
position ns If he liked it. U0U11 also seems
to have his batting eye this year.
Omaha can have the pictures of a real
automobile race if not the race itself. Mov
