The following report of the meeting
of the Nebraska federation of wom
en's clubs, which was held in Colum
bus last week, was written by Mrs.
Milton Scott, who was a delegate from
the Lincoln Woman's club:
ECHOES FROM THE CONVENTION.
The eighth annual convention of the
state federation of women's clubs met
at Columbus on Tuesday. October 7th.
at 2 o'clock. Mrs. Draper Smith of
Omaha state president, in the
.chair. The convention opened with
prayer by Reverend Monroe, pas
tor of the Congregational church of
Columbus. Mayor Dickinson wel
comed the delegates, officially extend
ing to them the freedom of the city.
Mrs. Gerrard. president of the Colum
bus woman's club, extended welcome to
the hearts and homes. Mrs. Chester
Brink, of Ord. responded in n few well
chosen words. Two musical numbers
were given by the high school orches
tra, the players all being young girls
and boys, directed by a young lady of
marked ability. The music was high
ly appreciated and enthusiastically
encored. Mrs. Smith followed with the
annual address, which she delivered
with her usual ability and very phas
ing personality, after which came the
flrst social halt hour of the con
vention. The corresponding secre
tary reported ninety-nine clubs In
the federation, forty-three being
represented. Mesdames F. M. Hall,
H. M. Bushnell, E. P. Savage. W.
A. Poynter. M. H. Everett. H. A. Bab
cock. W. E. Burlingim. Milton Scott.
A. E. Davisson and Miss Annie Miller
of Lincoln, represented their respective
clubs. There was not time enough al
lowed to hear reports from all the
clubs, whch was a disappointment to
many, as this feature Is one of the
most Interesting and helpful to the
convention. The Randolph club report
received special mention. It Is a new
club, but has a constitution that pre
dicts a long and profitable existence if
only its" tenets are well adhered to.
This club pursues heroic treatment. If
any member falls to perform an as
signed duty a fine of one dollar is the
penalty. The Omaha woman's club
numbers fourteen departments, a na
ture department being a new feature.
A Bible study department Is in view
in the near future. The Omaha and
Council Bluffs railway club has seven
ty members, and studies civil service
Mrs. Harriett MacMurphy. of Omaha,
chairman of the household economics
committee, presided over the Tuesday
evening meeting. After a piano solo by
Miss Lucy Haywood, and some pre
liminary reports. Governor Savage ad
dressed the meeting. The governor said
he had been asked to speak
on forestry and had prepared what he
thought would read quite well, but only
a little while before the time fixed for
the convention he was ii Vt;l to fore
go the oratorical and flowery talk, and
come down from the tree-tops to plain
food topics. It was a great disappoint
ment to him, but his faithful wife
helped him out. However it sounded
ery much like the governor himself.
While his topic, "Pure Food Laws."
did not give him much room for ora
torical display, he had enthusiasm,
which often makes up for lack of dis
play. Miss Bullock, secretary of the
state library commission, gave a re
port of her year's work. It was a good
report and to those who heard it. In
teresting, but unfortunately she did
not speak loud enough for all to hear.
Miss Harriet Heller, of Omaha, made
a plea for voluntary contributions for
a colored teacher, Miss Vanderzee,
teacher of colored children in the south.
Wednesday morning was devoted to
art in the clubs. Mrs. F. M. Hall,
chairman of the art division in the fed
eration, had charge of the meeting.
She gave a report of the year's work
through the state, which proved that
much Interest and latent talent were
being developed as the result of com
bined work. She was assisted by Mrs.
Langworthy of Seward, Miss Butter
field and Mrs. Comfort of Omaha. Mrs.
Langworthy Taylor had charge of the
civic department. Besides her own
able address, she was assist
ed by E. G. Routzahn, of Chicago, field
secretary of the American league for
civic Improvement. Mrs. Nellie Rich
ardson, in a few concise and effectual
words, told what our city Improvement
society had done in the way of procur
ing ordinances and beautifying the
streets. Her talk proved interesting
and instructive. Mrs. Hinman. of Lin
coln, was chairman of the educational
session. Mrs. Hinman gave a very in
teresting address, and surprised her
auditors by making herself heard,
every word being clear and distinct.
What a comfort it is to be able to hear
every word a speaker utters whether
it be good or bad. If a woman Is phys
ically unable to make herself heard
after taking the trouble to prepare a
paper, it certainly Is her duty to get
borne good reader to read It for her.
Mr. C. A. Robblns was the chief
