the right direction Wo hope to see it
duplicated in every club center and
one club makes a center.

portunity for many northern men and
women to visit the sunny south. The
favorable rates secured by this associa

Over thirty thousand people availed

A new club has been organized at
Springfield. Mo., and named the Wo
man's Self-Elevation Society. It was
recently organized by a prominent so
ciety leader at the close or a card party
which had been held at her home.
After the prizes had been awarded she
made the proposition to her friends that
they proceed to the organization of a
new Eociety of women, each member
pledging herself "to speak no ill word of
any other woman." The suggestion met

This vital question is to be settled there
in a democratic way. Each delegate

A letter from Anna Maxwell Jones,
secretary of the Paris exposition com
mittee, asks that wide circulation be
given, through all club papers or depart

federation in Paris is given up. Mrs.
Jones is still receiving letters concern
ing the tour, which, of course, has also
been abandoned.
Dr. Sarah HacKett StevenEon also
gave a 6hort talk for the woman's lodg
ing house in Chicago recently, in the
course of which she gave an account of
a private interview she had with Eng
land's queen kstJune. Dr. Stevenson
said: "Queen Victoria is interested in
this club. She asked me to tell her of
it and of the Model lodging house, add
ing: 'Do all the members live at this
Model lodging house?' I replied: 'No;
nearly all have husbands, families and
homes of their own. The queen thought
it would be delightful to bean American
club woman, but said she had duties in
At a recent meeting of the woman's
club of Chicago, Miss Jane Addams ad
dressed the meeting in behalf of the
middle aged men and women of the very
poor. She explained that the burden of
life did not fall upon the little children,
and that interest in the kindergarten
should not take the thoughts away from
the middle-aged, the destitute, the
helpless. Her talk was a most eloquent
plea for the "Woman's Model Lodging
House," which several of the women's
clubs of Chicago have taken especial
charge of. She urged the women to be
generous with sympathy and help to
those who need an occasional tiding over
until work is secured. She said In part:
"Before we had this lodging house there
was no refuge for them except at the
police station. Don't be discouraged
over them. You may find one with a

A convention of southern colored wo
men was held in the city of Montgom
ery, Ala.. December 2Sth and 29th. The
object of the meeting, as expressed by
Mrs. Booker T. Washington, was to
band together southern women for
greater usefulness in their own section
of the country. There were present
over two hundred women, all interested
in modern movements for the elevation
of home and children. There were dele
gates present from Alabama, Georgia,
Tennessee and Mississippi, while all the
other southern states Lent greetings
and expressions of hearty cooperation
in the object of the convention. A state
federation for Alabama was perfected,
also a permanent southern federation of
colored women's clubs. The southern
colored women all feel that great and
peculiar needs exist in their own land,
which they must meet, and that by such
an organization, which will bring the
willing workers closer together, they
can better study the need: of their own
section and make effective plans for ele
vating their racp. The importance of
mothers meetings, the great need of
kindergartens, manual training schools
and day nurseries for children were dis
cussed and practical plans were adopted.
The convention adopted tbe fo'loxing
