Hale in the Christian Register of re

ly given for the continuance of a club,
a branch of the Audubon society,
which already exists in some of the
Lincoln public schools.
Dr. Hodge, the eminent naturalist,
carried a pet bird into several of the
schoolrooms of the city of "Worcester,
Mass. The masters readily gave him
permission to let the scholars see the
bird, while he talked to them about
birds, and the interest they would And
in watching them and studying their
ways. He contrasted such study with
whatever pleasure they derived from
stoning or shooting birds. I Buppose
he touched on the business of taking
their eggs or their nests.
As a consequence of such visits, it
proved that the next year he could
count up seventy birds of different spe
cies frequenting the streets of Worces
ter, with more or less familiarity,
where he had 'found In the year be
fore only thirty-six. The next year,
in the same streets, he observed one
hundred and twenty species.
Here is one Illustration -which shows

a community, by no means exceptional

The dining room decorations were par
ticularly effective. The serving tabic
was adorned with ferns and a basket
of white carnations. The table was
placed in front of the deep fire place,
which was converted into a grotto by
the skillful use of palms and other
greenery. In an upper room which was
decorated in yellow with chrysanthe
mums for the chosen flower, Mrs.
Charles Mayer assisted by Mrs. W. C.
Phillips and Miss Hallett served orange
punch. In one of the dressing rooms
bouquets of pink roses matched the
roses in the window draperies, the
other dressing room was furnished and
decorated in pink and blue. Mrs.
George Schwake stood in the upper hall
to direct the guests.
The gas globes in the various rooms
were shaded to match the decorations
and a music box played tunefully dur
ing the afternoon.
The Chicago business women's club
organized in 1898 as an outgrowth of
the women's stenographic association,
has secured handsome and commodious
quarters opposite the new postofflce
where a down-town club house has
bean opened. " ,
In addition to the offices and general
reception rooms of the club there are
private and public dining rooms, pri
vate assembly rooms and a general
xnents. This permits them to have their
favorite recipes tried, and if the dish
happens to meet with general ap
proval it is immediately made part of
the club menu.
The club is in a prosperous condition
financially, and its initiation fees and
dues are so reasonable that they debar
no one from Joining. The most difficult
condition for would-be members to
meet lies in satisfying the member
ship committee regarding their creden
tials. The strongest kind of references
have to be given, and these receive
The active management of the club
is in the hands of Miss Mary M. Bart

guardian of the probate court, who is
president. Miss Ellen Gertrude Roberts
also a practising attorney, is chairman
of the house committee.

In response to an invitation from the
president, Mrs. F. M. Hall, who
opened her house for a reception to
the club. It is always a pleasure to
visit Mrs. Hall's home because of its
art treasures, which are not equaled
by any other similar collection in Lin
coln. These were supplemented on
Monday by magnificent flowers, roses.

membership is confined exclusively to
business women. Married women who
are in business are refused member
ship if they do not work from neces
sity. In case of a wife supporting an
invalid husband or some similar con
dition, this objection is waived.
While the ulterior object of the club
is the broadening and bettering of the
conditions surrounding young working
women, the organization fills an
immediate want in giving its members
an exclusive rendezvous for women
near their places of business. But men
are by no means debarred from par
ticipating In the pleasures of the or
ganization, as members are at liberty
to bring their men friends to luncheon '
or dinner. And, of course, men are a
"necessary evil" in the dances and
other public functions of the organiza
tion. But the members do like to
boast that there is not a man employed
about the place.
In addition to the business meetings
of the club, the women have sewing
and quilting bees, at which they pro
vide bedding for the club. Then they
have athletic classes. Delsarte and
dancing lessons. One of the things
that gives the most enjoyment is the
