THE WEEK'S REVIEW
The New Book Review club will give
iU annual banquet next Friday even
ing at the pleasant new home of Mr.
and Mm. O. M. Stonebraker.
Chapter K of P. E. O. met Monday
evening; with Mrs. C. S. Jones. Miss
Clark, who had been appointed to re
view a. book, was not present, hence
the evening was devoted to business
and sociability, and the hostess served
Sorosis held the first meeting of the
club year with Mrs. A. S. Tibbets on
Tuesday. During the business session
It was decided to give J5 to aid the
state federation In supporting a colored
kindergarten teacher in the south. The
rest of the afternoon was spent in re
lating vacation experiences which
called for many interesting and amus
ing Incidents of summer sojourns
among the Rockies and Black Hills,
and by lake and sea.
The ladles' whist club met Saturday
afternoon to reorganize. Officers elected
for next year were: For president, Mrs.
R. C. Outcalt; secretary-treasurer. Mrs.
F. W. Hellwlg; members of the execu
tive board, Mesdames T. H. McGahey,
Fl B. Righter, Carl Funke, and E. B.
Green. A committee to arrange for a
tournament consists of Mesdames W.
A. Green and S. H. Burnham, and Miss
Pound. The club rijl meet each
Saturday afternoon at ttie Commercial
There are societies for the prevention
of cruelty to animals, and to prevent
the killing of birds. Why would it not
be a good plan to form societies for the
prevention of-injury to trees. Mr."
Sterling Morton, the father of arbor
day, had the legend "Plant Trees"
made conspicuous about his home. An
other, "Save the Trees." might be
added. If the children were banded to
gether and pledged not to destroy or
damage trees, they would respect the
promise, and would no longer be seen
swinging around young trees, or care
lessly scraping the bark -with their
knives, as is often the case now. The
Audubon Bociety has inspired boys
with respect for the lives of birds, and
la-the same way a similar work might
be done for the preservation of trees
which are planted along sidewalks, and
around school grounds.

discussion narrowed down, to the pres
ent situation In the anthracite region
and became quite heated. Fully two
third of those present expressed sym
pathy with the miners and felt that
seme concessions with regard to their
wages shoul dbe made. Previous to the
discussion Mrs. Field, assisted by; her
daughters, served a five course din
ner. Those present were Messieurs.

For several years it has been the
cactota to open the Matinee Muslcale
season with a reception with or without-
a musical program appended
gives by the president to all members
of the club. This has come to be called
"President's Day" and is pleasant for
Both old and new members, as there
hi opportunity to renew old acquaint
ances and form new ones. Last Mon
day the president for this year, Mrs.
Erwra Hinckley Barbour received the
club at her pretty home, 1234 R street.
The afternoon was auspicious and the
complimented their hostess by
appearing In their handsomest gowns.
Miss Eleanor Barbour greeted the
guests at the door. Mrs. Barbour and
Mrs. H. B. Ward, who Is. vice presi
dent, received in the drawing room,
and other officers and board members
assisted in doing the honors. Over the
windows and the wide doorways were
vines gracefully festooned, and scarlet
cannas adorned the drawing room.
The club colors, green and white, bad
possession of the dining room. Creme-de-menthe,
small cakes and confec
tions were served by Mrs. Paul H.
Holm assisted by Mrs. Joseph Grain

Jessie Lansing and Miss Eleanor

There is in New York a club with
an Indian sounding name, which trans
lated means simply. "All Sorts and
Conditions of Girls," and the associa
tion was formed five or six years ago
on an altruistic basis that has never
been lost sight of. The yearly ball
by which the club name "Asacog" has
been kept before the public is the only
occasion on which it seeks fame. And
the desire is only that the tickets may
be disposed of to better advantage, for
the chief object of the affair Is the
raising of funds for the prosecution of
the settlement work of the year, the
only other available source being the
dues of the members, active, associate
and sustaining. Tet this ball has
labelled the club to many as a "so
ciety affair" only. It Is true its mem
bers all belong to the best families in
Brooklyn and are young women whose
names will always be found in ac
counts of fashionable life. In this club,
however, they are- moving along the
line of modern thought in settlement

Thrilllngly interesting Is the case of Laura Biggar, the comely act
ress, whose efforts to have herself declared the wife of the late Million
aire Bennett, of turf fame, and mother of his child. Is likely to bring her
disgrace, punishment and the loss of her legacy of the $500,000 left her
by the millionaire. The lawyers of the Bennett heirs are turning the
tables and will endeavor to prove that Laura Biggar was never Ben
nett's wife and that the child was not his.
