Just What You Need for Wedding
We have a full line of Spaulding's
ored women, the first of its kind, was
held in Boston in 1895. Out of this
grew the Rational Association of Col
ored Women. The club is likewise the
guiding spirit of the Northeastern Fed
eration of Colored Women's clubs.
Mrs. Ruffin has been president of
the Woman's Era club since the organ
ization was formed. She was born in
Boston, and when ehe was sixteen years
SI .35.
of age, married George L. Ruffin, who.
was one of the handsomest and ablest
colored men in Boston. He was a grad
uate of the Harvard Law school, served
several terms in the city council, two
terms in the legislature, and when Gen
eral Benjamin F. Butler was Governor
he appointed Mr. Ruffin to a judgeship
in the municipal court in Charlestown,
Boston, giving him the distinction of
being the first colored man to occupy a
position on the bench north of Mason
and Dixon's line.
At the presentation of a Bet of colore
to a company of the Fifth-first Massa
chusetts colored volunteers in 1863, Mrs.
Ruffin was the first person to publicly
recite "The Black Regiment," a famous
war-time poem. She was one of the
first workers in the Associated Charitiea
of Boston, which did a far-reaching
work in the negro exodus of 18'9. For
a number of years she has been a mem
ber of the Moral Education society, and
has also been strongly identified with
the MasssachuBette Woman Suffrage
association. She is a member of the
New England Women's Press associ
ation, being editor of the Woman's Era,
published in the interests of the colored
women of America, and is the founder
of the Association for the Promotion of
Child Training in the South, the aim of
which is to aid in kindergarten work in
southern cities.
Mrs. Ruffin was recently elected an
alternate delegate to the Milwaukee
convention by the Woman's Press asso
ciation and a delegate by the Massa
chusetts Federation of Women's clubs,
but both of these places she declined in
order to be a delegate of the Woman's
Era club.
Mrs. Florida Ruffin Ridley, a daugh
ter of Mrs. Ruffin, is one of the promi
nent members of the Woman's Era club.
She is a graduate of the grammar, high
and normal echoolB of Boston, and was
the second colored woman to teach in
the public schools of that city. She
was one of the founders and the first
secretary of the Woman's Era club,
and did much to aid her mother in mak
ing the first convention of colored wo
men of the country the success it was.
Mrs. Ruffin is described as a woman
of fine personality. Her complexion is
very light and clear, and she has a deep
color in her cheeks. Her hair, which is
prematurely white, is worn in a pompa
dour. She dresses with taste and her
presence is stately.
Tecumseh Sprosis right royally enter
tained their husbands and friends at the
residence of Mrs. J. A. Dillon, one of
the charter members of the club, on
Wednesday evening, June 13th, the
event being the greatest social function
Tecumseh has witnessed for many
moons. The beautiful lawn was artis
tically lighted and decorated with tri
colored Japanese lanterns. At the door
the guests were directed by Helen
Daviee, and each one in turn was in
troduced to the officers of the club, who
received in the front parlor. These were
