The Deborah Avery Chapter of the Daughters of the Revolution met with Mrs. Philbrick on Friday aft3rnoon. The paper of the afternoon, given by Mrs. Henry, was a continuation of the study of the Colonial Period of American His tory, beginning with the year 1628. The Century Club will meet with Mrs. W. H.

The Domestic Econotry Department meets with Mrs. Mi. ton Scott, 221 S27lb street, on Monday afternoon. The question is often raised in literary clubs whether or not topics Ehould lie assigned. If one has a message to give, and is burning with eloquence on a cer tain subject, it would indeed be trying to be forced to write on an entirely dif ferent topic. But those who havo no message, gen erally prefer a regular program, when the responsibility is largely shared by the committee; if te subject teems dull, blame them for choosing it. Somnwhera Emerson sajp, that there is one thing that each or us can do better than any one else. Perhaps so, but for many ye an, women wi re so hampered by home duties and regulations that they could not fled the "one thing'' in which they might excel. Now they are c roping for knowledge, and it is only by furtive tiials, that the direction is found, in which the wi-y should lie open to their inclination and taste. The object of club work may be the entertainment of others, or the improve ment of one's self. As all acknowledge, the chief value of a paper is to the writer, in the knowledge and grasp of the topic, gained through long 6tudy. It is broadening to the individual to be farced to think beyond her' usual in terest?, but this cep. rot bring to the club, the enthusiasm of a self-chosen topic-. Most of the Lincoln clubr, as well as the majority of literary clubs through out the countiy, prefer the detiniteness of aim of a carefully assigned program. When the winter's study has been con fined to one general topic, more real in formation ia usullly gained, than from a taste of the sweets of many subj'cts. The club members, tco, follow the same general course 6! readirg, and are better prepared for the diecus-ione. Many of the Lincoln clubs are stuiyirg ctuntries this 3 ear; Holland is the topic of the Fortrightly; Russia, of the Hall ia the Giove; Italy, of the Century. Only Sorosis and its offspring, Junior Sorosis, have their members wholly un hampered by suggestions of any kind; these have freedom of choice, but with it goes hand in hand, the lack of com panionship in their chosen study. LIURAUY DAY. Many Lincoln people visited the City Library on Friday of last week, when its shelves were thrown open to the pub lic without restriction. The members of the women's clubs have locg ap preciated its well chosen volume, and the unfailing interest and courtesy cf tho librarian. Miss Dennis, who has paved an easy path to many a paper, by her judicious advice upon books to be read. The collections of books on the tables were a surprise to many, so large a num ber on one subject. Two tables were given to the works on American his tory; the sami to Art, many of them beaut if ul'y illustrated; but perhaps the most complete collection of hoiks were those on Browning and Shikespere.
