emnly swear, each by whatever she
holds most sacred, that you will be loyal
to the physician under whom you serve,
as a good soldier is ioyal to his officers;

households, you will keep inviolably

Several weeks ago the Ladies' Literary
club of Gilmore City, Iowa, was the
guest of the Review club of Des Moines.
Last week the Review club was pleas
antly entertained in Gilmore City.
Among the subjects discussed were
what should constitute a club dinner,
picnics, programs, luncheons, straw
rides and sunrise breakfasts. Other
Iowa clubs are planning similar ex
change of courtesies for the coming
year. Nebraska clubs might adopt the
idea with 'pleasure and profit.
Of immeasurable benefit to the poor
classes in Philadelphia are the huge
recreation piers on the river front. The
upper stories of these piers are enclosed
as a protection against storm. The
lower portion, which is nearbst the river,
is never closed, and is patronized by
women and children at all hours of the
day. In the evening the men also go
to the pier to rest and Btnoke. Lucch
counters are' provided where pie, milk,
roast beef, soda, ginger cakes, ice cream
and other cheap articles may be pur
chased if desired .
"Jane Addams Hall" is the name of
an institution soon to be erected in
Paris, copied after Hull House in Chicago.
Seventeen years ago the Rev. F. L.
Pease, a retired missionary of New
York city, purchased a little farm in the
suburbs of Ashvilie, North Carolina,
and built a comfortable cottage in
which he hoped to spend hiB remaining
days with his wife in peace and happi
ness. The girls who came to do cooking
and other household work in the cottage
were very ignorart. None of them were
accustomed to the conveniences of a
modern kitchen, and few were able to
read and write. So Mrs. Pease organ
ized a small class in which she taught
reading and writing in addition to house
hold arts, and soon applications for ad
mission came from mountain girls out
ride her own neighborhood, which she
could not well refuse. Five years later
Mr. Pease donated his thirty-five acreB
of land to the Presbyterian Woman's
Missionary board for the erection of the
Normal and Collegiate Institute for
Young Women, a four-story structure
which accommodates 225 girls. On the
same site is the Home Industrial School
for Girls, which is the direct outgrowth
of the kitchen class established by Mrs.
Pease. The cottage has been enlarged
until it accommodates 108 girls, with a
list of applicants all the time who have
to wait for vacancies on account of lack
of room. Mr. Pease died several years
ago. but Mrs. Pease sttll lives in Ash
vilie, and though eighty-four years of
age, takes an active interest in the work
of the schools.
