a narrow yauge road connecting Ne
vada City with Colfax. The president
of this road U Mrs. S. A. Kidder, wid
ow of its former president. From its
beginning in 187G Mrs. Kidder was
identified with the road. She aided
her husband in his undertakings and
SIBS. S. A. KIDDEil.
knew as much nlout them as he did.
After his death in l'.tOl the stockhold
ers of the road n't and unanimously
elected her president. The roadlw?d of
the little tralllc way was wretchedly
out of repair, and in spite of not being
able to carry nearly all the freight of
fered to It a heavy debt hung over It,
and for eighteen years it had paid no
dividends. President Kidder took hold
of affairs energetically. She increased
the carrying capacity of her road, got
new ears and waked up things. She
encouraged the development of the
rich mines that lie along her line, the
planting of great orchards, the stock
ing of new ranches. Now that crooked
littlo road pays in per cent dividends
and has no bonded debt. Mrs. Kidder
herself owns a controlling interest in
the stock and is not afraid to Invest still
further in it whenever any Is for sale.
All this a woman railroad president has
done in four years honestly and fair
ly. The only crooked thing appertain
ing to this railway is the road itself.
Mrs. Kidder's home and office are in
Jrass Valley. She herself buys nil
supplies for her load.

Her tirst deep dive Is said to have
been after a diamond ring that lay in a

a sunken wooden barge in Lake Hu

English Women Botanists.
The Lhmaean society of London, an
organizati m of botanists, now admits
women to full membership. (Ireat Brit
ain has numerous distinguished wom
en botanists, more than are to be found
in America. Mrs. Parquharsou Is the
woman who obtained for her sex the
honor of membership iu the Liunaeau
society. She herself Is a distinguished
botanist and microseopist. Eleven wom
en are members of the botanists' socie
ty. One of them is the Duchess of Bed
ford. She is an expert in natural his
tory as well as in lotany.
Still another distinguished one of the
eleven is Miss Ethel Sargent, who has
made a microscopic study of vegetable
cells. Miss Margaret Benson is exam
iner In botany for the University of
A Filipino Great Lady.
l'or hundreds uf years Chinese men
have been Intermarrying with native
women in the Philippine I-lands and
the children have become Christiiins.
The result is the strangest mix of
Chinese and Malay superstitions ami
customs and Christian religion to be
found on the earth.
At Silay, island of Negro, a young
American woman teacher found the
great family of the province was that

and the head of the house was not a

4 V.omen'fc Club tildren That Had
SuurthloK In II.
The last meeting of the Parm Wom
en's club at Sunuyside was the K-st of
the year. The task of one of the club
committees was to point out' methods
whereby women iu the country caa
earn money at home. It was this com
mittee's day to report, and Professor
Theodora Hilton of the State Agricul
tural college had beeu iuvited to Ad
dress the club.
Miss Hilton began by saying that
sociologists were seriously considering
the puestioti of how. under civiliza
tion's present economic conditions, the
feminine sex might earn money w!tu
out necessarily breaking up the home
and ceasing to be mothers of families.
In case of the country home the pro
fessor thought this could be achieved
without great difficulty if farm women
would get out of ancient ruts, which
mean poverty and suffering, and be
come Intelligent enough to grasp the
new opportunities which are certainly
before them. Much of the most ex
quisite art textile work and lacemak
Ing. embroidery and rug weaving, re
sulting in products for which the
wealthy In this country pay fabulous
prices, done In the poor cottages of
peasants abroad by women with their
families around them.
Tha Han Industry.
With that Introduction Professor UK
ton went on to say there was a profit
able Industry peculiarly adapted to
women on the farm In which the prod
uct did not begin to supply the demand
In the United States. This is the poul
try business In all Its departments.
Did the ladies of the Farm Women's
club know that about oMO.000 dozen
eggs are annually imported into the
States? At the same time probably a
million farmers' wives are straining
their lives out lu suicidal toil, each
trying t- conduct half a dozen trades
when the present conditions of life de
mand that all the woman's energies
lie concentrated ou one If there Is to
be success in anything. It Is the pres
ent scheme of the great hen trust to
buy up for almost nothing the eggs In
summer and put them In cold storage
till winter, but strictly fresh egg are
1'KiKON llot sK AN1 l IAIXa CACJE.
always in demand at good prices. In
winter iu the large cities they some
times reach iV) cents a dozen and are
not to M had at that.
The woman who can successfully es
tablish a paying Industry at home can
afford to release herself from the grind
of mere domestic work by hiring some
body else to do It while she devotes
her time and brains to money making.
"Don't say this is the mere fancy of
an unpractical student. It is not." em
phatically remarked Professor Hilton.
Let the farm woman study systematic
and practical hen culture from books
and through experience. I.et warm
quarters and suitable fresh food be
provided for Mine. Hen In winter, and
she will clear to her owner a profit of
at least twice as much as she herself
Is worth. In the egg Industry the right
plan Is to begin iu a small but scien
tific way, learning as one goes along.
There, too, are ducks, geese and tur
keys, all of which can be made profit
able by the woman of Intelligence.
In the large cities the supply of
young pigeons for table use has never
been equal to the demand. Like every
thing eise, squab raising is compara
tively easy after one understands It.
It is best of course to begin with a
small outlay of money, gradually en
larging the enterprise. Bather oddly,
while pigeon rearing seems Just the
kind of "small business" a woman is
fitted for, the large bquab farms are In
almost every Instance conducted by
men. There Is, however, a lady near
Philadelphia who makes a large In
come from the birds.
A part of an ordinary bam loft would
do to begin. It should be set off to It
self. The birds breed four or five times
a year if they are protected from the
cold in winter. Two eggs are laid and
two young ones hatched at a time.
One of the great squab rearers of the
country receives not less than $10,UK)
a year from the birds. Nearly half of
this Is profit. They sell at the rate of
about rU cents a pair. Where much
profit is to be had from the squabs
special pigeon bouses must be made.
The se birds require plenty of roam ami
fresh air as well as plenty of water
and exquisite cleanliness. The pigeon
Is u e.-ank on bathing.
Tiie pigeon hoime that Is most ap
proved has a large flying cage attac h
ed. It Is made of ordinary meshed
wire netting. Ten feet high, twenty
five feet long and eighteen feet wide
are giod dimensions for a flying cage.
There are books Vat give instructions
for squab raising.
