THE WEEK'S REVIEW
The ninety-eighth afternoon conceit
of the Matinee Muslcale was given
Monday afternoon at the club rooms.
The second division, Mrs. It. A. Hol
yoke and Miss Lucy Haywood leaders,
gave the program, which was made up
of compositions by the composers of
"Our Own Country." The Matinee
Muslcale has always been loyal to
American composers and nearly everj
year since its organization has a pro
gram been devoted to their works. That
of Monday showed that the club need
no longer fear that such a progrum
would not be popular for every num
ber was attractive. The program:
"Our Own Country."

The audience was unusually large
as each member was privileged to take
a guest. The music hall was decorated
with large Ameiican Hags. The re
freshment room was in red and green.
A star formed of holly and red candles
was on the table and bows of red rib
bon were on the corners. The lights
were shaded with red. Mrs. E. Lewis

During the last three months nearly
all of the state federations have held
an annual meeting. In all of the ses
sions there was a spirit of earnestness
and of striving toward a practical ben
efit to be secured through the club
movement which is a decided contrast
to the sentiment of club women of even
five years ago. While possibly no less
earnest in their work than now, club
women then studied history and liter
ature and art as separate and isolated
subjects, expecting to gain nothing
more than the culture resulting from
an acquaintance with any educational
branch. Today the club woman has a
broader outlook. No subject claims her
attention for itself alone; her instinct
ive response to the law of correlation
compels her to study each subject in
its relation to other subjects, and most
of all in its capacity of adding beauty
and dignity to her every-day life. Prac
ticality is the key note of all modern
club work. Whether club association
Is rendering women more practical, or
whether the tendency of all life is to
ward increased practically and finds
Us natural reflection in club or
ganizations, is an open question. Cer
tain it is that the home department is
one of the most popular In the Lincoln
club, while the subjects of greatest
interest in both local and state club
meetings are those which directly con
cern the homes of the present and the
On November 11 and 12 the board of
directors of the General Federation of
Women's Clubs held a meeting in New
York City. With the exception of one
member the entire board was present,
together with the state otlicers. The
date of the opening of the sixth bien
nial at Los Angeles wes fixed on Thurs
day, May 1, 1902, and most of the time
of the meeting was devoted to the dis
cussion of details of the program for
the California meeting. The club wo
men of Los Angeles have long been
planning for the entertainment of the
national federation, and their enthus
iasm is now shared by the other city
organizations. The Merchants' and
Manufacturers' Association have decid
ed to hold the "Fiesta de las Flores"
during the week of the biennial con
vention, and the visiting club women
will thus be enabled to enjoy a festival
which in Its magnificent oriental splen
dor cannot be reproduced in any other
section of the United States.
Resolutions adopted by the executive
boards of the Massachusetts and Geor
gia federations regarding the admis
sion of clubs of colored women were
presented to the board of the General
Federation and these two states were
appointed a committee to propose to
the sixth biennial some amendment to
the by-laws of the General Federation
which shall harmonize the conllictlng'
ideas on the color question and at the
same time preserve the Integrity of the

The Zetetic club, of Weeping Water,
met November 23 with Mrs. Shannon.
Nine members were present. Mrs.
Rouse, the leader of the meeting, read
a short review of the beautiful life of
Mrs. Browning. The club then studied
Browning's poem "Count Gesmond."
The leader read the poem, and then
asked questions upon it. It was a very
interesting meeting, and the ladies all
felt that they would not soon forget
December 14, the club met with Mrs.
Hungate, eleven members being pres
ent and one visitor. Miss Cowles,
favored the meeting with a piano solo.
Mrs. Dunham was the leader of the
day; subject, "The Two Arnolds." She
told of Thomas Arnold, and his presi
dency of Rugby college. Mrs. Nellie
Sackett read of the "Making of Bug
by," telling how Arnold changed the
face of the public schools of England,
and that he was fifty years ahead of
his time. Mrs. Ashmun read a text of
Arnold's. Mrs. Teegarden read the last
chaptei from "Tom Brown's School
Days," showing the great sorrow of
the boys at Arnold's death. Miss
Cowles played again, which was much
enjoyed. The leader then took up the
story of Matthew Arnold, reading parts
of that fine poem, "Sohrab and Bus
tun." Then different members asked
questions on it.
The hostess served hot coffee, wafers
and cream of maize kisses, which were
much enjoyed, as the mercury out of
doors was below zero.

We are often asked why the Bauer Piano is
called the Bechtstein of America, and a few
historical facts with regard to this noted
instrument may be of interest to our readers. ' ,
Julius Bauer came to this country nearly
forty years ago, to reap the benefit of the ad
vertising of the Bechtstein Piano, by Ruben
stein, who was playing it in concert in this
country at that time. He was reasonably sm
cessful, but soon discovered tliat the German
made piano ca.se would not stand this climate
so decided to begin the manufacture of an
American piano, built on up-to-date, American
principles, containing the musical qualities of
the Bechtstein, using the Bechtstein as his
model. The result is the beautiful Bauer
Piano of today, which is conceded by the
severest tone critics in America to be second
to no other piano in existence. During Juliu
Bauer's life the piano was made only for his
own retail trade, but since his death the field
of the Bauer Piano has been greatly widened
through the efforts of his son, Win. Bauer,
who is one of the ablest and most conscien
tious piano builders of this day and age, and
is now handled and marketed bya large num
ber of the most prominent and best ported
dealers of the country.
