Dr Anita Newcomb McGee is being spoken of as the next president of
the Daughters of the American Revolution. She is now vice-president. Dr.
McGee enjoys the distinction of being the only woman who ever held rank in
the United States army. She was superintendent of the woman army nurses
during the Spanish-American war and bore the rank of first lieutenant with
the richt to wear a lieutenant's uniform. Dr. McGee .organized the four hun
dred women nurses of the war. This is the first photograph of her ever
evening with Mrs. K. M. Matthews. The
following officers for the ensuing year
were elected: President, Miss Ida John
son; vice-president, Mrs. C. S. Jones;
recording secretary. Miss Blanche
Mickey: corresponding secretary, Miss
Olive Wallace: treasurer, Mrs. Haydn
Meyer; chaplain, Mrs. Grace Deputy.
Miss Ida Johnson and Mrs. Mary Mc
Kinnon will represent the chapter at
the state convention, which will be held
In Wymore the first week In June.
The home department of the Woman's
club had one of the most charming
meetings in its history on Thursday aft
ernoon. The children of the department
had been invited to be its guests on that
day, and those members who hud no
children of their own were requested to
borrow some. The result was a gather
ing of seventy little tots with bright
eyes and rosy cheeks, who keenly en
joyed Miss Caldwell's stories, the phono
graph, the music box which played while
they were eating, and above all the tee
cream and small cakes with which they
were regaled. Miss Helen Welch pre
sided at a table which was adorned with
tulips, and served the cream. This en
tertainment was so successful that a
similar one, for a different class of chil
dren, will probably be given by the home
department this spring. A quantity of
cakes, not needed for the party, were
sent to the home for the friendless.
Mrs. M. H. Everett returned on Tues
day from attendance at the congress of
the Daughters of the American Revolu
tion in Washington. Mrs. Everett re
ports delightful weather for the con
gress, and sessions much more har
monious than the newspapers gave
them credit for being. She spoke of the
beauty of the new White House, partic
ularly of the state dining room. The
social functions in connection with the
congress were very elaborate, especially
that given by the board of lady manag
ers of the St. Louis exposition, at the
New Willard, to which President Roose
velt, the foreign diplomats, and the
members of congress were invited, and
the reception at the Congressional li
brary. The second annual report of the Mas
sachusetts Civil Service Reform associa
tion is out and Includes much that is of
interest to club women, especially as the
extension of civil service reform study
in the clubs Is largely the result of agi
tation and work of this association.
Since the last annual meeting over 16,
000 pamphlets have been sent out to
schools in twenty-five states and an
effort is being made to Interest high
school and even grammar school chil
dren in the merit system of appoint
ment. The society has now In press, in
pamphlet form, a syllabus on civil serv
ice reform written by Prof. Salmon,
which Is to be sent to clubs throughout
the country. The growing Interest of
women's clubs on the subject, is com
mented upon with satisfaction.
Sorosis met with Mrs. E. H. Barbour
on Tuesday. As the ladles came in
singly and by twos and threes there was
a pleasant air of anticipation about
them that seemed to indicate that some
thing of unusual Interest was about to
take place. Nor were they disappointed,
when, after the discussion of current
events in response to roll call, Mrs. J.
E. Miller, the president, acceded to the
request of the club and gave an account
of her recent Cuban trip.
The journey through Florida, partly
by boat, a brief stay at St. Augustine,
the sail from Tampa and the entrance
into the harbor of Havana, was the
preliminary to the main topic. The
many hues of brightly painted houses.
the jail like appearance of some of the
buildings, the narrow, rough, but clean
ly streets were given as the first Im
pressions received by the American
tourist upon landing. A description was
given of the fine architecture of cathe
dral, .temple nn.l castle. The pictures
que street vender with his heavily laden
animal, the sentinel like palms which
lined the Prado and the luxuriant
growth of the Hibiscus were Hpoken of.
The agricultural resources were said
to be a surprise to one nnd especially
the sleek well fed cattle to be seen grnz
Much was said of the sugar Industry
and the spirit of unrest existing among
the people who are awaiting action on
