A. R. election this year Is Mrs. Hoover,
wife of William 'S3. Hoover, president
of the-National Savings and Trust
Company of Washington. Though
making her residence here, Mrs. Hoover
is a member of the Luther Reeve
Chapter, D. "A. It., of Rome, Ohio,
which chapter is unique in that every
one of its members is a direct de
scendant of '.uther Reeve, of Revolu
tionary days. The chapter is, there
fore, composed entirely of cousins.
This Luther Reeve for whom Mrs.
Hoover's chapter is named, was one
of many Revolutionary prisoners on
the battleship Jersey. To any of these
prisoners who should succeed in throw
ing a famous wrestler on the ship, the
English soldiers promised to grant
freedom, and Luther Reeve was the
only man of sufficient physical prow
ess to overcome the wrestler.
Mrs. Hoover stands for re-election
as treasurer general of the national
society, and her friends enthusiastical
ly declare that the magnificent report
read Tjy her yesterday morning at the
congress is sufficient to entitle her to
become the unanimous choice of the
Daughters. Mrs. Hoover's report was
as able as it was extensive, and
showed that during the last year no
less than $121,000 has passed through
her hands As treasurer general of
the Daughters, she reported a balance
on hand in the treasury of the current
fund of J32.100.60. Of the building
fund. $91,617.39 has been disbursed by
Mrs. Hoover, and she has at present
on hand a balance of $6,2.56.95.
The able management of the money
affairs of the society by Mrs. Hoover
has iieen invaluable to the president
general in her great work of super
vising the completion of Memorial
Mix. Hoover Is youthful and hand
some, and combines with these qual
ities unusual personal magnetism.'

nental Congress is a quietly dressed,

Martha Berry, founder of the Berry In
dustrial School for Mountain Boys and
Girls, and one of the best known
women In America. "When Col. Theo
dore Roobevelt went to Georgia re
cently the especial object of ills visit to
that State was to pay a visit to Miss
Berry's school, which, he afterward de
clared with characteristic enthusiasm, is
doing the most unique and the greatest
educational work in America. '
The school Is for the mountain whites,
and Is probably the only institution in
the country which the children of the
rich cannot enter. The training offered
at the Fchool for boys and girls is so
fine 4hat many wealthy parents with
simple-life Ideals have sought admission
for their children, always with the same
result. Miss Berry refuses to take them
because she does not wish a single poor
youth from the mountains crowded out.
She has educated hundreds of young
men from the most illiterate mountain
region of the South, and has Just added
a girl's school to meet a pressing need.

needs no heroic measures Just a gen
tle laxative like Syrup Pepsin. A small
dose of it will right the baby. It is
a great laxative and dlgestant. pleasant-tasting
and non-griping. No baby
or child refuses it. Many mothers
never give their children anything
else, and they have robust children
and no doctor's bills. It Is a great
money saver as well as a great life
saver. If space permitted, thousands
,of women's addresses could be given
who write they will never be without
Syrup Pepsin In the house. It Is for
all the family for anyone who real
izes that salts and strong cathartics
