man or woman in li is employ. The
life of any organization, religious or
secular, emanates from its head, and to
that rule there is no exception. The
vast majority of people, young and
old, ate like sheep; they follow a
leader. To be a successful head of a
Sunday school calls for a man with
the instincts of leadership; a man who
will infuse life into the school; hope
Md courage into his teachers; who is
fertile of mind and infinite in capac
ity; who can draw children to him and
retain their interest- The duty which
lies before the Sunday school superin
tendant is not an easy one. Not only
must be elevate his children in a spir
itual sense, but lessons of the highest
moralitv must be taught; an influence
refining to mind and nature must be
exhaled, and all the time the interest
of the children must be arrested and
held. Infinite variety of method must
be sought. The young quickly tire of
anything which long remains the
suae, and that is why they are tiring
of the Sunday school. It has too long
remained the same. It has fallen into
a rut, and the fault lies between the
nreadintr spirits of the school who
have no ability for their positions,
A recital of unusual merit was that
given last Monday evening at Weyleyan
university by Mis3 Lillian D. Lythe.
graduate student of the conservatory of
music. Mies Lythe was aeeioted by Miss
Amelia Holli6ter, soprano, and Mies Eva
P. Fuller, pianist.
The opening number was played with
taste end rhythmic decision. This was
perhaps the most successful number of
the evening, though her rendering of
the Schumann Aufsrhwung awakened
more enthusiasm. MicsLythe's appeal
is made to the refloei emotions, her
touch is delicat9 and her runs clear and
even, but she gave this with a force
and brilliaucy that struck the vigorous
side of our appreciation. Her second
number, Mendelssohn Concerto, was
gratifying, especially in the last move
ment which she played with more ease
and abandon than characterized the first
movement, in which the ensemble was
not always good.

disgust that cannot fail to be aroused as
well as the hems of many gowns.
An ordinance has been drafted by
Mrs. Richardson against expectoration
in public halls and buildings and street
cars. There was some diversity of opin
ion as to whether sidewalks should be
included in this or not.
The garbage boxes came in for their
share of discusciro. The society ex
pressed itself as well pleased with them
as to color and the question arose how to
interest children and people in general
in using the boxes. Morj cans or box3s
will be placed in position as soon as possible.
Plans were also debated for tbe fur
ther removal of aehes and the waste
which will be accumulated by the com
ing spring cleanings.
The History and Art club of Albion,
held an interesting meeting March 1, at
the home of Miss Emily Bull. After
the usual opening exercises, Current
Events occupied the first place on the
program. The subjects for the after
noon's discussion were, The social condi
ions of Rome, The Grachhi, Progress in
Literature, led by the President Par
limentary drill led by Mrs. T. H.Barkley
was lively and interesting. The energy
and vim displayed by the ladies remind
ed one of the old ages. "There's nothing
eo deep but search will find it.'' The
.afternoon's program closed with an in
strumental solo by Miss Bull, which was
greatly en joyed by all.
Life on Phillipine Island, was the sub
ject before the Current Events on last
Saturday afternoon. Mrs. Woodworth
told of the natural resources and beauty
of the Islands as well as their misfor
tunes in being under the miss ruling of
Spain. This led to the discussion of
Cuba and Maine disaster. The depart
ment will meet every Saturday after
noon at 3.30. This week Mrs. Dr. Wol
cott will give a talk on the destruction
of trees by insects. .Specimens will bo

At the meeting of the art department

An entirely new and remarkable
phase of Walter A. WjckofTa experi
ences as a day -laborer is begun in the
March Scribner's wilh "The Workers
The West." A certain idyllic quality
was never far distant from even his
most sordid experiences in the rural re
gions, which made the first division of
this narrative the most talkedof serial
feature of the year. But in this new
experiment he plunges into the "heart of
a congested labor market" Chicago, be
fore the World's Fair. Heie he learned
what it was to look for work and fail to
find it under the spur of hunger and
cold His narrative differs from all
previous accounts of tne slums and
slumming because he actually lived the
the life for months on the same condi
tions as the poorest. He raised himself
from tbe vagabond class by the only
door that is open to them the door of
labor. He entered into their organiza
tions labor union?, socialist meeting?
and anarchist societies. He does not be
lieve that we are on the eve of a "Social
Revolution," and this narrative will be
the best answer to alarmists. It is not
an economic discussion, however, but an
absorbing often dramatic and pathetic
account of actual people and experi
ences. These are fucts of life presented
with amazing literary skill.
In W. R. Leigh the series has found
an ideal illustrator. He has the same
fidelity to reality in his art that character
izes Mr. Wyckoffs writing. And he is a
master in composition. These illustra
tions were made on the spot, and the
author put the artist in touch with the
real scenes of his adventures. Chicago
will be the setting 'of the narrative for
the next four or five chapters.
