LADIES WERE DELIGHTED.
Display at the Don MnrcbeV Opening
Just to Their T.lking.
A Times' reporter found great difficulty
in wedging his way yesterday through the
crowd at the "Bon Marehe," whicn was
attracted by the annual fall opening of
that well-known eslablisnment-
The display or hats on the second floor
was one or the most notable features
or the opening, and attracted possibly the
most attention. Oversix hundred Parisian
novelties in this line were exhibited.
The proprietors or the "Bon Marchc"
claim to carry the most extensive line
or ladles' hals and bonuets or any firm in
the National Capital.
Another display which attracted a great
deal or attention was the collection of
ladies' and misses' cloaks on the llrst floor.
The display or furs was also quite a feat
ure, and the-only thing winch se-emed
necessary to satisfy the new woman at the
"Bon Marehe" opening was a full pocket
book. CONVEYANCE WAS GOOD.
Court of Aupc-ul Holds a Woman
din l'nss n Title.
The court ot appeals yesterday handed
down an opinion in the suit of the heirs
of Mary Ransom for the possession and
partition of square 63. The decree of
auoge Hacner in the case was a I armed.
It was related that prior to the war
Mrs. Ransom ami her huslMnd made a
power ot attorney to. one Gibson Hunt
to sell the property in question. It was
sold about the close of the war to B. O.
Tayloe, the deed being given by the at
torney, but a deed wa3 never obtained
from Mrs. Ransom.
Tlie question was whether a power of
attorney executed by Mrs. Ransom was
valid In the District of-Columbia, it being
contended that a married woman cannot
convey real property by a power ot
attorney. Judge Hngner held that the
conveyance was good, and the court of
appeals sustained, him under a Mary

Vtiero tho Lemons Grow.
Few Americans are aware of the fact
that if it were not for the little island of
Sicily now there would be no lemons, nor
are many aware ot the great Importance
ot this commerce and of its r.ece-ssity to
the United States. The production of
lemons In America Is so limited at the
present time, both as regards quantity
and seasons, that all of California's and
Florida's products do not supply 10 per
cent of the country's needs arter the
months or August and September, when
our domestic lemon crop matures, and
but ror Sicily we should be without any
lemons whatsoever, except Tor a few that
Spain senc us during the rest or the
year. Accurate figures show that from
September 10 to April 30 during the
last rive years the importations from
Sicily have" been about l.COO.OOO boxes
evcrv vear. each containing 300 lemons.
This Is equal to 300,000,000 lemons.

GOOD NEIGHBORS' CLUBS

The meeting ot the Center Couneil ot
the Civic Center, which -was to have,
been held yesterday afternoon at Foundry
Church, was postponed on account of the
absence of many of the members from the
President John M . Gregory is still ab
sent from the tlty, but is expected to
return shortly. During his absence ho
has given the work ot the Civic Center
for the coming season serious attention
aud made some excellent suggestions to
the chairmen of several of the -most Im
portant committees. His letter to Kev.
Dr. Kent, pastor of the People's Church,
the rull text of which Is given bclo-w,
will be read -with much intercut by the
public, especially those directly Inter
ested In the establishment of a free li
brary and reading rooms, lie writes as
"My Dear Doctor: September is here
and tells of the work to be done by our
Civic Center. I have engagements which,
will take me oat of "Washington Mondays,
for sceral weeks, and so may Interrupt
my meeting with the Center Council, but
I shall do what I can to push the -work
forward. I have written, to Chairman
Wllllts hi regard to several matters which.
1 think, his committee should be ready to
push forward, and I have planned letters
to some other chairmen. I know that
you will do -whatever your hands find
to do and with all your might.
"I have been glad to see the movements
pending among the fcibor unions in refer
ence to a library and reading-room. This
is, as you kiow. In the line of one ot my
favorite projects. But one library is not
enough, unless it has brane-hes in differ
ent parts ot the town. Let us, by all
means, have one good library, rich la all
that our artisan e-Iusses need to read; but
let us have branches, -with reading-rooms,
so that eae h man will find within easy reach
a place where he may spend his evenings
pleasantly and profitably.
"My ideal is an artisans' or 'good nelgh
bors' club' In each four blocks of the city,
with a room large enough to seat an audi
dlcnce ot at least 100, fitted up with two
or three tables for readers und for games
for familiar scientific and other lectures,
and room for soe-lables, and with a smaller
room for smokers, all to be warmed and
lighted every eveuing ot the week and open,
to lioth. men and women, for the hom
sometimes grows dull and tiresome to tho
wives as well as to the husbands, all under
the management of the club Itself, aided,
perhaps, by a grand central committee from
all the clubs, from which they might bo
supplied with lee-turers nnd varlo'is enter
tainments, as also with reading matter.
'1 have thought that If your committee
and those on adult education and on popu
lar recreations could unite In this par
ticular work, we might establish five such.
Good Neighbor Clubs this season in the
different section of the city as examples,
and perhaps models.
"A small fee of five or ten cents a week
for membership would give a feeling ot
ownership and furnish, probably, all tho
funds needed at first. If such clulis could
be established all over the city they would
furnish the opportunities we nwd to bring
all plans of municipal betterment home to
"How docs the plan strike you? Is it
"1 want very much to see you and talk
over the winter movements. 1 shall be
glad to bear from yon, when you get time,
to leant what yon are doing and planning
for the common good.
