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
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.
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

paved an easy path to many a paper, by
her judicious advice upon books to be
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.
