NEEDS COURAGE AND SPIRIT
Passive Obedience Has Never Mads
for Man or Woman a Place In
Paget of History.
Wo moderns are popularly supposed
to have been the first to profess ad
miration for the strong-minded wom
an, whom we proudly or derisively
call the "new" woman. Yet If we
study history, and not merely hear
say, we find that the heroines of the
world were by no means gentle, sub
Electra, whom the ancients exalted
far above her milder sister, Chryso
tbemls, would certainly have been a
suffragette, had she lived In this cen
tury. Cleopatra, Hypatla, Joan of Arc,
however "diverse otherwise, were at
least alike In rebelling against au
thority and following their own way.
, Rowena would have seemed more
attractive had she eloped with Ivan
hoe, and we all prefer the nobler Re
becca, who nearly died a martyr be
cause nhe was among the first lady
From time Immemorial courage and
Bplrlt have been extolled, and Justly
bo, too. People who feel deeply can
not always be passive. Thoy wish to
control destiny, not to be controlled
by It, nnd sometimes they, actually
succeed In their desire, through their
very refusal to accept the inevitable.
Obedience Is apt to be often over
rated virtue which may be the result
or jndlflerence or laziness, a mere
craving for peace at any price, ln
stead of a genuine and unselfish
Making a Home.
The home Is spiritual, but It arises
through the vehicle of the physical,
We may not be able to track It down
to any one material aspect. Sleeping
under one roof does not make a home;
eating together does not make a
home; gathering about a common
lamp or a common fireplace does not;
possibly" even-children In a nursery
cannot make a home. We may elimi
nate one or another ot these and still
keep the spiritual thing that we prize.
Sometimes we must eliminate, when
the very multltudo of Its outward
signs blur the real meaning you can
not see the woods for the trees. But
a proverb usually needs a supplemen
tary gloss, and In this one It should
be added that without trees there will
bo no woods And so, in' the case ot
'the home, if In one extreme there la
danger of submerging Its significance
In the mass of Us physical expres
sions, there Is at tho other oitrerao
the danger ot dissipating significance
through a paucity of physical expres

THE WHEATLEY PROVIDENT
HOSPITAL FOR COLORED '
For several years there has been
a great need of a well organized hos
pital in this city for Colored people.
Dr. J. E. Ferry, with his well epulpped
sanitarium did much In the way of
hospital work. A little more than one
year ago, the Provident Hospital was
organized, incorporated and assumed
the control of "Perry Sanitarium."
During the same time the Phyllis
Wheatley Hospital was organized, and
each of these Institutions proceeded
to raise means for the purpose of es
tablishing; and maintaining the two
hospitals. It was soon discovered,
however, that it was hardly probable
that two Institutions of this kind
would be supported by the people of
Kansas city. Therefpre, the manage
ment of these Institutions came to
gether and decided that it was for the
best interest of the Colored citizens
of the city that the two Institutions
bo merged into one body, which was
accordingly done under the name of
"The Wheatley-Provldent Hospital.
All parties heretofore connected
with each of these Institutions liav?
pledged to use their best efforts in
the raising of funds to purchase suf
flclent ground, and erect thereon, a
hoapIta, building m this city, as will
t th0 , e dg 0, 0 people.
The Wheatley-Provldent Hospital
has assumed control, and Is now oper
ating the Hospital at 1214 Vine
Street, Kansas City, Missouri, which
building was formerly occupied by
tho Provident Hospital. There is In
the treasury of said Wheatley-Provldent
Hoscpltal Association tho sum
of 11,700. which Is to be used only for
the purchase of a site on which a
building is to be erected.
