MRS. SIMON HAS QUILT DESIGN.
MRS. L. SIMON OF THIS CITY
has a design for a beautiful quilt in
the February number of the Ladles'
Home Journal. The old fashioned
quilting bee In early days was one of
the stable institutions of the country
and afforded much pleasure to house
wives. The custom was allowed to
die out but in recent years has been
revived, and many women of the
country we vying with each other in
the beauty and attractiveness of the
designs. Mrs. Simon has been de
voted to the work for many years,
ceased to be a source of pl asure.

several attractive desigU3 to the

'For if we all land in Jail," they fig

So they formed the first suffrage
stock company on record, to be called
the Twenty-five Players of the Twenty
fifth Assembly district They will feed
their arguments to the public In the
form of dramatic situations, rather
than In speeches.
The Twenty-five Players consist of
women of various professions. The
suffrage company numbers in its ranks
actresses, lawyers, artists, one minis
ter, and a number of women who have
hitherto been known to society only.
Its first object is to entertain, its
second to make money for the suffrage
campaign. And since suffrage plays
are not a drug on the market the Play
ers are also the playwrights and are
manufacturing the dramas they produce.
The Twenty-five Players are already

Men's League for Woman Suffrage.
She is connected with the Woman's
Trade Union and was on the stage be

to the bar.
Marie Jenny Howe Is an ordained
Unitarian minister. In private life she
is Mrs. Frederick Howe and one of the
cleverest makers of the speeches she
believes have had their day.
The official director of the Twenty
five Players Is Mrs. Charles H. Caffin,
who was one of the Ben Greet Players
In England. She has contributed a
sparkling playlet to the repertoire of
the Suffrage stock called "The Home
Thrust." Another of the profession who is
