the Early ory
In the only children's museum ir
the world, the one in Brooklyn, ma3
be seen an attempt to make histori
tangible by carefully studied ani
modelled groups. Miss Agnes E
Bowen has recently completed a ser
ies of three groups, illustrating th
Spanish, Duich and Cavalier typei
of early 'ettlers within the limits 01
tln 1 ' states. It took twt
months of eight hours work a day t<
make these three groups.
Standard histories of costume wer<
eonIlted in French and Gernan a
well as Engli.. Old prints wer<
sought and copies of paintings of the
period represented. History was stud.

of New York and the territory as fai
afield as Canada were ransacked foi
materials and properies which would

Day emblem. The seile'r has two very
good hunting dogs m-hieh were founi
in a toy store. A small boy suppliod
an idea regarding them.
"The dogs wouldn't like the In
dians," said he. "Their ears would
be down ilstead of up.'
Inquiry confirming this view, the
ears were properly manipulated.
The hunting which it took to find
all these things consined a good part

Miss Bomenj, who is the first to
make groups of this kind, conceived
the idea as a child, when her mother
used to contrive soniewhat similar
groups for the illumination of Bible
scenes. As she grew older her father
used to take her to identify the'sites
of all the old forts and early settle
ments about Brooklyn. She grew up
with a love of history made tangible.
and when Director Lucas, of the
Brooklyn Museum, asked her to ear
ry out her ideas in the history depart
ment of the children's museum the
groups were one of the results.
The study she has put into them
make them valuable. The interest of
the children who frequent the ius
eum was amusing. She worked in the
basement and they swarmed about
the windows to watch her until they
had to be driven away to give her
light to work by.
A pretty girl of Brooklyn served
as model for the cavalier's sweet
heart and posed in the sweeping Col
onial courtesy while the artist bent
the wires to reproduce the posture.
Women Needed in Public Life.
The editor of the North American
Review, in the current issue, announ
ces his conviction ''that the time has
arrived when the welfare of the na
tion would be most effectually conser
ved by conferring upon women the
right of voting and holding political
ol.Tiep.'' He holds that the right to
the franchise is not an inherent one,
and therefore has no sympathy with
those who claim it on these terms.
ie closed the long editorial by say
ing: ''For the purposes, therefore, of
purifying the ballot, of establishing
and maintaining lofty standards as to
the qualifications required of candi
dates for public office, of effecting
an evener distribution of earnings, of
providing a heavier balance of disin
terestedness and conservation against
greCd and radicalism, we reiterate the
expression of our firm belief that
universal suffrage has now become
not only desirable, but almost a para
