Down in Washington the populist sen
ator, full of the majesty of his position,
submits his grave face to the barber's
razor, and as he looks at the old darkey
he says to him:
"Uncle, you must have met with a
great many of the men of the past
my predecessors in the senate; many
of them have occupied the same chair
which I now fill.''
"Yas. boss, that's so; a good many of
'em. You somewhat resemble Daniel
Webster yourself, boss."
The populist senator raises himself up
and throwing the cloth off from around
his neck, says:
"What part of my head is it. Uncle; is
It my brow, or what?"
"No. boss, taint nuffln like that. It's

The Woman's club of BIsbee, Ariz., the
"youngest club of the youngest federa
tion," as It Is described, has built itself
a clubhouse of which an older club might
well be proud. There are three large
rooms, besides a small but convenient
kitchen, designed for use on social days.
There Is also a small office for a cus
todian. Bisbee Is a small place, less a
town than a mining settlement, t far re
moved from the regular line of travel,
and comparatively few of Its Inhabitants
have time to devote to literary develop
ment. The enterprise of the club women
Is all the more remarkable under the
From the Mall and Times of Des
Moines is taken the following mention
of what Is certainly a very useful club
in Davenport, Iowa:
"The central thought of the Lend-a-Hand
club of Davenport Is educational,
a training for usefulness. Each girl Is
taught not only to take care of herself,
but also to be alert, to guard her asso
ciates, especially younger girls and those
less experienced In the ways of the
world. They leam to live within their
means, to calculate the value of a dollar,
to use It to the best advantage. They
also are learning how to conduct meet
ings. They are learning parliamentary
law and usages. They are forming good
associations, receiving mutual benefit.
They have an opportunity to form safe
and congenial associations. The wages
paid working women are on the average
so low that many could not afford din
ner at the restaurants and would be
compelled to eat cold lunches. The good
it has done by the Lemi---Hand in the
sixteen years of Its existence cannot be
estimated. Every city should have one."
At a club meeting In Chicago a few
weeks ago, Mrs. Robert J. Burdette, the
first vice-president of the General Fed
eration of Women's Clubs, gave her club
creed, which created so favorable an Im
pression that It was printed on slips of
paper to be distributed In Chicago, and
Is being widely copied by papers over
the country. The creed is:
I believe In afternoon club life for
I believe in evening club life for men
and women together when It does not
rob the home of father and mother.
I believe that woman has no right to
undertake any work whatsoever outside
of the home, along the lines of philan
thropy, church, temperance or club life,
that does not emanate from the home
and In Its final' and best results return
to the home. Home must always be the
centre, but not the limit, of woman's life.
I believe in equal rights in the family
for father and mother In Intelligence,
affection and filial respect. These the
club should foster.
I believe In nine-tenths of the club
members doing the-work and one-tenth
the criticising. Instead of the reverse.
I believe in individual responsibility
for every interest of the club, mutual
sympathy and appreciation of results.
A believe no woman has a right to
accept a place on any committee unless
she serve faithfully, promptly. Intelli
gently, and is willing to stand by the
results of her individual action.
I believe that women should have a
moral responsibility regarding financial
matters In the prompt payment of dues
and pledges, and a comprehension that
as no other phase of life can be carried
on without money neither can the en
larged club life.
I believe In the value of a minute, and
that thievery of time on the part of one
late member from those In waiting Is
I believe, out of consideration for oth
ers, in removing the hat In all public
I believe In occupying the seat furthest
from the aisle when there are others to
come, and, for the same reason, occupy
ing front seats first.
I believe that club members should
restrain themselves from whispering or
the rustling of skirts or papers during
I believe no woman should seek or use
official position for self-aggrandizement,
or club affllltions for stepping stones
only, but that she should utilize her op
portunities for the altruisms of life.
I believe the character and good name
of each Individual member of the club
should be as sacredly guarded by all
. other members as are those of the fam
ily, and that the use of dishonorable
political methods In club life for women
will be the death-knell of pure, womanly
I believe the golden rule for club
women should be. Do right unto others,
regardless of what others do unto you.
