The following "Don't" from "The
Club Woman" are worth reproducing:
Don't join a club juBt because there iB
Don't join a club expecting to attend
only when there is nothing else to do.
Don't join a club until you have read
and understand its constitution and by
laws. Don't join a club expecting the officers
to furnish all the fuel for the steam of
enthusiasm and for the fire of energy.
Don't take refuge in ignorance, and
say, ''Oh, I know nothing of parliamen
tary law, but this or that or the other
ruling was all wrong."
Don't imagine, if an officer, that you
have any higher personal privilege, ex
cept to work early and often.
Don't imagine that every other sub
ject on the program would have suited
you better than the one the committee
assigned to you.
Don't imagine when you are on the
affirmative side of a question that the
negative member is assigned to oppose
you for life; it's only for ten minutes.
Don't imagine your number on the
program is a movable feast, to receive
attention any time by anybody. It ia
dated and by the "noblesse" of club life
is marked "not transferable."
Don't imagine because corporations
have no souls that clubs have no epis
tolary etiquette. Prove that they have
by answering letters, even at the point
of prostration and pen paralysis.
Don't, if difference comes, ''carry the
war into Africa," from one club to an
other. It, is a direct violation of the
laws of neutrality, and a reckless waste
of" ammunitionyas usually sufficient
unto the club is the war thereof.

unite in the expression of our conviction
that nations, which are but aggregations
of individuals, should be held to a mor
ality at least as exalted as that which is
demanded of individuals under the
highest existing form9of civilization.
The Court of Common Justice, in which
differences are arbitrated by law and
reason, has succeeded to the duel as the
approved method of settling individual
controversies. We believe this fact to
be a pledge that nations also may be
brought to settle, under corresponding
laws of justice and reason, sectional and
international controversies. We pledge
ourselves to give support to the princi
ples enunciated in the conventions
passed by the Conference of The Hague,
to sustain the Court of International
Arbitration, to endeavor to augment
public respect for it, and to aid in so
modifying conditions that the range of
its influence and the application of its
principles, in behalf of which it con
vened, may be extended."
