The address delivered by Miss An
thony at the recent suffrage convention
is in all probability the last she will de
liver in public. Still, although "(be
grand old woman" has passed a decade
beyond the allotted three core and ten,
she is still vigorous and actively inter
ested in the work to which she has de
voted her life. Miss Anthony was
deeply touched by the many tokens of
respect, which tepiesented every stato
and territory in the union. In replying
to theso expressions of reverent affec
tion, she said: "I have been touched to
the heart's core by all the utterances
and by the letters and telegrams I have
received from all over the world. But
none has touched me more deeply than
the one that came from Alabama, a pen

and a postal oider for eighty cents (one
for every year) from a woman whose
father and mother clanknd the chains
of slavery." In referring to her devo
tion to the work which she has been
permiited to see develop from con
temptuous tolerance to the adiptionof
suffrage in four states, Miss Anthony
further said that she hoped the time
would eoon be here when every man and
woman who could read the consiitution
would be entitled to vote, regardless of
Bex, race or color. "But I am not
through working," she said, "for I shall
work to the end of my time, and when
that time comeB I shall accept my new
vocation In my hew home just as cheer
fully as I have passed this life. It I
have one regret it ia that some whom I
longed to have here are not here except
in spirit Of all the others who have
be c my co workers, and of all here, I
would say that my work would have
been worse than fruitless had I not been
sustained by them. Frances Wright cf
Scotland, who first introduced the sub
ject of woman's rights on the platform
in the United States; Ernestine L. Rose,
that fair, polished orator who demanded
property rights for married women from
the Neff York legislature years before
our native women sustained her;
Frances D. Gage, Clarinda Howard
Nichols, are names as worthy as any
that have been mentioned here, my own
not excepted. Then, good friends, I
have had a home in which my father
and mother, brothers and sisters, have
all stood at my back, saying, 'Go
wrestling with dressmaker is the sort
of thing that makes a woman truly hap
py. But then we all know that what
men in general and husbands particular
don't know about women would fill
books enough to fill all the libraries
Andrew Carnegie can build."
A small boy has coined a new word
to designate club women ''the club
bers." The conditions of the origin and
aptness of the word gives it a successful,
parsuasive sound tha implies that it haB
come to stay. This small boy was say
ing plaintively one night that they
didn't have puddings at his hoxe any
more since his mother had become a
clubber. His mother said she bad
learned at the club thatdesserts weie
unhealthful, and little folks must not
eat them. We cannot but sjmpathiza
with the small boy, for in the vista we
see disappearing the plum puddings and
mince pies "mother used to make."
St. Louis has inaugurated a curfew
plan which may accomplish much good.
It is no' compulsory simply suggestive.
Many of the owners of mills and fac
tories have agreed to hav their fac
tory or mill whistles blow in the eve
ning to warn the children that it is time
to go home. The whistles will blow
at eight o'clock in the winter and at
nine in the summer, and the plan will
be continued a year. The large body of
children which it is hoped to reach in
this way come from homes whose daily
routine is largely governed by these
same whistles. As the fathers and
breadwinners of these families obey
thes whistles implicitly, the children
may be influenced to a like obedience to
the summons. A compulsory curfew
law has proved about as effective as the
anti-profanity and anti-finery laws of
Connecticut, in the witch-burning days.
Every person expects to be allowed to
exercise his God given sense or lack of
sense in the things which concern him
Shakspent's declaration that "age can
not wither, nor time destroy her
charms" seems to have been emphat
ically true of Helen of Troy, who was
forty-six when men embroiled nations
for her smiles and favore. Liane de
Poitiers was fifty six when, far and near,
men declared her a siren, whose fasci
nation no man could resist. Julia Re
camter, at sixty, could scarcely dissuade
an enamored prince half her age from
suicide because she declined to accept
his protestations of passionate love.
Mme. De L'Enclus last desperate affair
of the heart occurred when that lady
was in her early eighties, and the lover
was her grandson unknown to himeelf .

The Gity Improvement Society.
The society met on Thursday morn
ing. The president, Mrs Taylor, pre
sided. Reports from the committee on
organizing the children into a girls and
boys city improvement society were
presented. Six schools have thus been
organized: The Bancroft, Everett,
Park, Pre3Cott, Bryant and Capitol.
At the Park school a maor, city clerk,
and three councilmen from each room
above the second grade, were elected.
These were subdivided into committeis
on trees, plants, fences, walks and tidy
ness. A great many have been com
menting on the neat appearance of the
Capitol school. The children have fill
ed the cans full, but they .are emptied
only at rare intervals. It is a pity that
the children's conscientious, zealous
efforts should not be aided by the
Btreet commissioner and his emp'oyeB.
All of the chairmen of committees ask
ed for more cans. Mrs. Baker read the
admirable constitution her committee
had prepared, in which the name of tbo
organization of children is given as
"The Boys and Girls Home and Cily
Improvement Society." As soon as it
is approved, several hundred copies will
be printed and distributed. Mrs. Dean
reported that the Bancroft school was
organized into three districts and each
district into three parts. The boys
uniform is brown overalls with a
white stripe, and the girls? blue aprons
and sunbonnentB. Mrs. Welch reported
that the Prescott school children were
organized and had scoured that district
for paper and rubbish for the purpose
of contributing to a bonfire in a vacant
lot, held under proper supervision.
About a hundred guests attended the
donation bonfire and the neighborhood
waB spotless. The neighborhood con
templates holding a bonfire once a fort
night. The committee on badges whb
instructed to order them immediately.
The C. I. S. was never so flourishing.
The members who attended the meet
ings are taking a helpful interest in all
plans for the improvement and cleaning
up of the city.
A woman physician says, you may
quote me as saying that shopping is about
the heaviest task that tha feminine mind
and muscle are called upon to endure.
It is the kind of responsibility that
paves the way to nervous prostration,
and the worst of it is, shopping grows a
more complicated and exhausting duty
eveiy day. "Shopping," she eaid, "is
the white woman's burden. It is the
popular belief among men that a good
