Hard Work for Women.
It is a question if women doing
men's work deserve particular sympa
thy, for it is doubtful if there is any
work that is harder than everyday
housework. Overwork tells on the
kidneys, and When the kidneys are af
fected one looks and feels older than
the actual years. Mrs. A. G. Wells,
R.- R. 6, Rocky Mount, N. C, writes:
"I cannot praise Foley Kidney Pills
enough for the wonderful benefit I
have derived from their use for a short
while." Lee A Osgood Co.

still accommodate the increased de
mand for information and general ser
vices of the organization to meet the
situation. The executive committee
have secured rooms 211-213, on the
Thayer building.

School Children Studied Greek Art at
Slater Hall.
Saturday afternoon saw the culmi
nation of the Museum Extension work
carried on by the Art Students Asso
ciation through a committee of the as
sociation. This committee is composed
of a group of volunteer members with
Mrs. Ozias Dodge as chairman. Twice
a week small groups of children from
the sixth grades are conducted through
the Slater Museum to study and ob
serve examples of Greek art, and since
this is an extension of their school
work it proves of great interest to
them and stimulates their apprecia
tion of the beautiful.
For the past three years the work
has ended with an afternoon of story
telling. Each year has shown an in
creased interest and last Saturday
Slater Hall was filled with an enthu
siastic audience of children. Mrs.
Cronan, who was the speaker on this,
as on previous occasions, is the offi
cial story-teller of the Boston Museum
and the Boston Public Library and is
considered at the head of her (profes
sion in the United States.
She told as her first story, an adap
tation of Charles Kincslev's Water
Babies, a wistful, charming talk of the
grimy little London chimney sweep
with his misadventures and final
transformation into a happier, nurer
The second story was of A Flaer
Raising and the third The Storv of
Trimbelma 'by Hans Anderson, who
excells in delicate imagination and
Whimsicality. Another fairv tale was
added as an encore and the children
went home happy. Mrs. Cronan
brought with her most beautiful slides,
many of them exquisitely hand-colored,
with which her stories were most
profusely illustrated. Pictures by
Kenyon Cbx. Jessie Wilcox Smith.
Howard Pyle and many others were
among them.
The object of telling these stories to
the children Is to interest 'them in the
stories and authors and so induce
them to read them for themselves and
in this wap cultivate a taste for the
Dear in literature.

declared he was consistent and out

fair to the "liquor dealers. He said these

and ought to be reimbursed In pro
