The Third district of th Nebraska Fed
eration of Women Cluba he accepted the
Invitation of the women's cluba or Stanton
to hold Its annual convention at that place.
April 21 and a are the dates riven. The
Woman's club of Madison has voted 6-cent
per capita tax to help defray the expenses
of the convention. Two new cluba have
recently come Into the Nebraska Federa
tlon through the Third district, the Homer
Woman's club and the Central City De
partment club. Mrs. W. K. Reed of Madi
son Is vice president of the district.
If some of the larger cluba would follow
the example of the Fremont Woman's club
and the Madison 'Woman's club In voting
a 6-cent per capita tax for dlmriet pur
poses, the problem of furnishing an at
tractive and successful district program
would be solved. A great cry 1 raised
against the per capita tax by many club
women, but th faot remains that any
woman could afford to pay cents toward
several worthy enterprise during the year
If she Just would, , and 5 cents would be
ample In the larger clubs If every woman
would do her share. Many clubs are op'
posed to the per capita tax because It so
frequently happen that owing to the care
leanness or Indifference 'of some, a part of
the money has In the end to be taken
from the club treasury.
The question nsturally art: "How can
these careless or Indifferent members be
brought to do their part?" It must be ad
mitted that that question is easier asked
than answered, but It Is done. Three of
the districts have announced conventions
to be held this spring, and the others will
probably complete arrangements soon.

roaarrese of Mothers.
In a circular Issued recently by the Con
gress of Mothers Mrs. Walter B. Brown
gives the following reason why that
organisation was created:
Tha world haa Ions dwelt fondly upon
the thought of the mother In the home.
The present age has discovered that
motherhood demands more of the women
than home life. It has learned that true
mothering necessitates a knowledge of all
outside conditions that Influence the home
and a direct Interest In the welfare of all
children. "Mother" has been a name to
conjure with In Individual cases. It must
be made a name to conjure with In creat
ing a national standard of noble manhood
and womanhood. Next to the Heavenly
Father's love for Hie children and more
nearly akin to It than anything else Is
mother love. I like that ancient Persian
appreciation that declares, "tlod could not
De everywhere so He made mothers.
Purpose To guard the Interests of child
hood, to provide for the best possible con
ditions for phyalral, moral and mental de
velopment, is the sole purpose of the Na
tional Congress of Mothers.
Inspiration Every home, every school,
every community needs the Inspiration and
uplift of organised motherhood To teach
the children that character is what counts.
that to do and to serve are greater than
all material possessions, that to be brave
and true and tearless, to live for the right
to be pure and unselfish, and to carry these
qualities Into every relatlonshlD of life,
whether In the home or business or public

BOSTON, Feb. 16.-The ninety-sixth an

As respects broadly the evangelical cause

that today there le in Spain forty-nine

Japan to Be Sell Supporting.
One of the most Important moves In the
effort of self-c-ontrol and Belf-support that
has ever taken place In the world is that
which wa taken in the past year in Japan
with almost the unanimous approval of the
Japanese leaders and the missions. The
Kunilal earnestly requested the missionaries
to remain and work as associate evangelist.
With the federation of the two missions
of the board in South Africa,, the east cen
tral African mission has become the
Rhode.! branch gf the American board
missions In South Africa. During the paBt
yer the work of the mission has been
affected by auch events as the completion
of the great Victoria bridge and the dis
covery of gold, copper and diamonds with

Help'. .- on ftonld Line Deny Offer
Made by Road and Say They
Will Accept It.
ST. LOl'IS, Feb. 18. A controversy has
arisen between the blacksmiths' helpers,
now on strike, and the officials of the
Missouri Pacific's Iron mountain system,
which Is believed will result In a settle
ment within a day or two. It became known
today that the railroad, -company had of
fered an Increase of 2 cents an hour to tho
men before the strike was ordered. This
la denied by officers of the helpers' union,
but they say that a 2-cent Increase will he
acceptable, and that 1? the company will
renew Its offer the strike will probably be
declared off. -
The situation In the strike of the boiler
makers and bollermakers' helpers remained
unchanged today. The men declare that
they will hold out until their demand of n
3 cents an hour Increase Is granted. The
road is willing to grant a 2-cent Increase.
The officials of the union claim they have
not lost a member and Insist that they do
not known of one who will weaken wheti
the real test of loyalty comes next Mon
day. The strike ha taken out 375 blacksmiths
and helper and 725 bollermukers and as
sistants employed In shops In Missouri,
Kansas, Colorado, Nebraska, Arkansas and
Tennessee. The strike Is said by the rail
road management to be the first step In
a general movement for a wage Increase
on western and aouthwestern lines.
