that the colored women who have

In the Club Work there are three
essential points: the individual work
or city work, the state work and the
national work. In dealing with the
home three things are essential: the
father, the mother nnd the child. No
home can grow without the child. In
the Individual club the women have
an opportunity to show what they
can do. In a club whern ten or

"Know your home. Know your

marked to the lady beside me, "Why
on earth did yon select h'm as the
valedictorian ?" She insisted that I
wait till I had heard him speak. I
wjiited and he spoke very well In
deed. After the exercise I had a
talk with this young man and learn
ed his history. His mother was a
beautiful woman who had been verv
unfortunate. His father died and a

possession of the youth and his sts

A woman's club In the state of
South Carolina has a Hospital Clinic
that is proving a blessing to the
women for miles around. In the last
six months they have had twenty
four cases, some of them of women
who have suffered for years, because
they had no money for treatment or
did not know how to go about secur

of such c'ties as Nashville who have
their hospitals and clinics, but you

sections that have no hospitals and
