THERE is no sympathy w helpful to a
family that is bereaved as that of true
friends and no help so reassuring as that of the
gocd funeral director.
Acting in your stead, he understands that he
must act in your spirit, performing each task
with the reverence and tenderness with which
your own hands would perform it if they could.
Sympathy which cannot be gracefully con
veyed by words is revealed through his acts of
service which bring the comforting assurance
that every attention has been given
with thoughtfulness and skill.

Tho Women 'c Protective Divi
sion is not n dectcetsve agency as
JiiMiy people arc prone to boliovo
but rather organized i'jr the pur
posc of protection and prevention
not prosecution nor persecution,
although protection many times
requires prosecution to more
than one person, according to
Mrs. Q. 1J. Nickorson, who spoke
at the Y. W. C. A. regarding this
department of tho city's work.
This woman's department hns
seen 17 years of continuous ser
vice in Portland, having been re
tained through the administra
tion of five mayors and six chiefs
of police, which speaks well for
the efficiency of the department.
At present there nro !) women
known as operatives, all of whom
are educated women tinder the
civil service, but they are not po
lice women as they arc some
times erroneously called. For
this department the city provides
a suite of fivo rooms in tho Wor
cester" building, not at the police
station. These rooms nro kept
open from 8 :',!() a. in. to midnight
including Sunday and holidays
and hero women nnd children
may go for protection, not perse
eution. Two well furnished,
well heated, comfortable rooms
are maintained where often
mothers with children seek re
fuge from n drunken husband
and father, or delinquent, girls
are eared for pending the time
for her ease to be called. There
is splendid co-operation between
the police officers and the wo
men of tho protective division
each calls upon the other as oe-
casion requires, miring tuo year

Every day the women opera
tives of this department nro in
