has over seventy members, and $100 in the
treasury, after paying for two lectures to

is a young club, but its members are intelli

Mihs Maria Mitchell, professor of astron
omy at Vassar college, recently received
the degree of L.L. D. from Hanover, col
lege, Indiana. The first degree of the kind
ever conferred upon a woman by an Ameri

ting that it should be given to one in every
way so worthy of it as is Professor Mitch
Misa Alice Fletcher, who bas been some
time in Washington, and awakened much
interest in her studies among the Indian
tribes, will go with the Indian girls and
young men who have finished their course
at Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and are to bo re
turned to their respective tribes. Miss
Fletcher is regarded by the Indiaus as a
friend and benefactor, and receives the
most hospitable treatment from them, and
every facility is afforded her to carry on her
work of investigating their manners and
Common Sense About Women,"
by Thomas Wentworth Higginson, now
in tho library, should be road by every
thoughtful and conscientious man and
woman who desire to look fairly at the so
cial problems of the day. Thomas Went
worth Higginson is one of our strongest,
best ana most fascinating essayists, and is
said to havo all tho charm of Montaigue
without his egotism.

Tho Woman's Journal for July 1st has a
graphic and complimentary mention of the
work done by the women of Cairo during the

fort in sustaining the defenders of the city

letter from Miss Francis Willard, commend
ing tho calm courage and bravery of the
women of Grinnell, Iowa, in tho late fear
ful tornado which recently wrecked the

Tho appointment by Mayor Thistlewood,
with the unanimous ratification of tho city
council, ot a board of directors for the
Cairo Public Library, consisting of nine
prominent and representative ladies and
gentlemen, is the proper and gratifying re
sult of tho negotiations in regard to tho
public library. This step sets tho seal of
success upon the efforts of the Woman's
Club and Library Association to lay tho
foundation of a free public library and read
ing room in Cairo. The faithful and pa
tient effort of tho Library association for
tho past seven years' has met with well de
served recognition at tho hands of a lib
eral and intelligent council, and cordial
sympathy and support from the public;
The names of the new board, a number of
them having bad practical experience in
the management of the library for five
years, are guarantee for wise and efficient
administration in the future. The time
may not bo far distant when Cairo will
have a free public library of which her
citizens may bo justly proud, and which
shall prove tho centro of literary; artistic
and scientific culture that will ho of un
bounded bcriefit to tho community. It is
tlio intention of tho Woman's club, when
relieved of tho financial responsibility of
tho library; to devote its timo rind strength
and means to cnlargH tho opportunities of
ourcitir.'jns for mental culture by means ot
lectures, classes and everything that should
naturally centre around a free library, pro
viding as far as possible for tho intellectual
growth of tho people What has been dono
in larger titles successfully may gradually
bo accomplished hero, and Cairo havo an
other inducement to draw to hor aa intelli
gent aud valuable citizenship.
