IN THE WOMAN'S WORLD
GLEANERS HOLD MEET
- HEAR TALK
Tin- Gleaners of Central I'nion
Jmr:h met yesterday afternoon at
three-thirty o'clock at the home of
Mrs. John VaterhouM on Wyllle
st reft. This organization was formed
tiy a woman missionary in Microne
sia in 1:M. with the thought that the
oung j:irls who then belonged to n
would later become active members
r the Woman's Hoard of Missions.
From tli' time of organization the
tlleaucis have raised twelve thousand
dollars, and there have been six hun
dred hie members. When one Btopt-: j
to consider tlia the members are
.n any of them children, liie sum they
have raised is not a small one.
The4 Gleaners cannot be called a
social organization, for although the
members look forward to the meet
ings, which are always enjoyable, the
lime ir, devoted to sewing for the
ix or children. At the present time
; hey are making rag carpets. That .
is. they prepare tne rags, but the ac
tual weaving is done at the Industrial
chcol. These car.ets are sold and
the proceeds go toward meeting the
many financial demands that are
made uion the Gleaners.
At present the Gleaners are sup
porting three girls at Kawaiahau Sem
inary. They give money to the Free
Kindergarten, send money to Tokio,
mi p port two Hawaiian Dibie readers
in Honolulu and each year make a
donation to the Woman's Board of
Missions. They also send some
money to Micronesia. Each year
their disbursements amount to some
thing over three hundred and twelve
dollars. The money is gathered from
membership fees and contributions.
When there is not enough to the
treasury more is raised by means of
delicatessen sales or in some similar J
manner. . - r. I
, Previously the meetings of the or
ganization were held at the homes of
the officers, but a new plan has been
adopted and the meetings, with a
verj few exceptions, are held at the
CentraJ Union Church. Yesterday's Angeles, is the child of wealthy so
meeting was one of these exceptions, ciety 'people, murdered from jealousy
and-wa.,more.of-a-soclai gathering, The-tietectives-have not made public
thus giving the young girls an oppor- the clew.
Can you Imagine a more practical article than a Toaster, a Per

vitiation of air, yet absolutely reliable, saying nothing of the conve
nience "and satisfaction they bring yod. -

could not give them any actual ex
igences. But she did tell them of
the customs of the Chinese as she
had studied them. She told them of
the w ork she had prepared to do, and
tnat she hoped that she would find
in China. From the
time that Mr. and Mrs. Wickes were
appointed to the position in the
Orient the people who are sending
them there have been confident that
they would be able to meet the many
demands made upon them, but since
the young couple have come to Ho
nolulu, and the ieople responsible
for their appointment have had the
opportunity of meeting them, they
are even better satisfied with their
choice. Mr. and Mrs. Wickes are for
tunate, too, in that they are going to
China just at the beginning of its
awakening, and the Chinese will no
doubt be quite ready to accept the
many new ideas which they are tak
ing with them. At the conclusion of
her remarks yesterday, the Gleaners
asked that Mrs. Wickes write to
them if she should need such help as
they might be able to- give her.
Though the meeting was rather in
the nature of a social gathering, the
scriptural selection was read and the
usual collection taken.

The French class met last' Tuesday
with an enrollment of six. This
class is under the instruction of 'Miss
Laura Eaker, graduate of one of the
j Paris colleges. The lessons consist
of French conversation ana grammar.
"- As there have been several- applica

ments have been made for one which

the French class.
Yesterday afternoon a most en
thusiastic class of girls were given
instruction in - tennis at the associa
tions courts next to the Homestead,
under the direction of Miss Tupper,
physical director of the association.
This afternoon from three o'clock
on the class in basketball will meet
for its first lesson in that game.
At the last meeting of the board
of directors of the association it was
decided to engage a domestic sci
ence teacher from the mainland to
take charge of that branch of the
work. There have been many appli
cations by the members for a class
of this kind, and as a suitable teach
er could not be found in the city it
was found necessary to engage the
the coast, j
Ladies' night will be observed at
the Y. M. C. A. tomorrow night in
celebration of the first anniversary of
the dedication of the new building

BURLESQUE I'MOVIE" IS.
Three comedies, and one good old
melo-dramatic subject, is the picture
offering at the Empire Theater for to-
as novel a comedy picture as has ever
been manufactured, it being a bur
lesque drama, with the "villainous"
villain and "heroist" hero it it pos
sible to imagine, with most impossi
ble escapes and rescues, and all done
in a genuinely artistic burlesque style,
making the subject most ludicrous.
I a particularly interesting event in
connection with this picture is the at
titude taken by the Oriental patrons,
the majority, being unaccustomed to
burlesque, believing the picture an
attempt at genuineness. They are
Jioud in their exclamations of disgust
I when the hero beats the prison door
J and the scenery falls, and when the
villainess locks the heroine in a mam-
moth safe, and without effort tosses
the safe through the window, only
to be caught in the waiting arms of
the ;hero as the safe reaches the
ground. These things are not grasp
ed by the average Oriental, and their
comments on the-picture are a good
part of the performance.
living art Studies
to reproduce paintings
Patterson's. Art Studies will present
their first change of act at tonight's
performances at the Liberty Theater,
it being an entirely new departure in
the posing line. Reproductions of fa
mous paintings,,, in. colors, will be the
nature, of the-change from last week's
reproductions of famous statuary, and
tonight's turn Is said to be even more
artistic and Interesting than the ini
tial offering of Patterson's aggrega
tion. The Lancaster operatic seven are
on the last week of their local en
gagement andcontinue to please with
their excellent singing, and ; these
turns', in addition to a very good pro
gram of moving-pictures, make up a
very good evenlng.'s entertainment.
AT THE HAWAII.
That "thrill" promised by the man
agement to the "cool, cozy and com
fortable" Hawaii Theater, must have
been felt-by the large audience last
night. S.R:0. tickets were sold -at both
shows and then everyone couldn't get
in who wanted to. As a story or
pumeval passions worked out in' gest
ures and actions, instead of words, tn
"Tragedy of the Desert" is a blue-ribbon
winner. The scenes fairly trans
port one away from the conventional!
ties, and the smell and burning glart
of the desert sands pervade every?
thing. Two other reels, a wescern
drama and a good comedy, rest the
patrons after the tenseness of "Thfe
Tragedy." The same b'ill repeats to
night and gives the ones who missed
it last night another chance.
