Wouldn't it be possible for some or- and
ganization in this city to provide ice tril
for the fountain which was erected on I
the Boulevard, by the Women's Chris- vat
tian Temperance Union? This would on
be an act of charity to relieve the fal
thirst of so many people out on the
streets during these hot summer th
days. This beautiful gift should be
more appreciated than to allow it to
stand and be of no use to the city. of
A number of new commodious da
swings have been placed on the large
lawns of the Protestant Orphans'
Home, which will add greatly to the Ti
pleasure of the little girls of that in
Mr. and Mrs. Henry Jastremski are in

The Housewives' League is to be a
congratulated upon the excellent
lunch it provided and served at the I
last meeting of the Association of

most daintily served and the League I
is being congratulated upon the suc- 1

To show that women are active in
all walks of life one is to remember
that we have a woman sexton of the I
Catholic cemetery. Mrs. Callahan
has held this position since her hus

Kean's Laundry is very much up to
date in as much as it has young lad
ies driving the motor delivery wag
ons of the Afirm. These young women
are efficient drivers, and are well
suited for this position.
EXCURSION ON THE CAPITOL.
The announcement of the usual
fall excursion on the magnificent
steamer Capitol, will be heard with
pleasure by all who have enjoyed a
trip on this palatial steamer. Henry
Watkins. Allen Chapter, Dahter of
the Confederacy, have contracted
with the Streckfas Steamboat Line to

on its way to New Orleans for the con

The Capitol is very popular with eve
the people of this city and the an- pro
