"Only two liev.- garments a year, no
Ciattcr bow small cr inexpensive as
Ion; as they arc new, " is the appeal
made "by tho district presidents of tho
American Needlework guild in drum
mins; up recruits for the organizaiton.
Thin nyilework guild is a distinctly
new charity r.ud i s eo:idnet'ed on a prin
cip:e di.Tcreit from any heretofore at
tempted in this eity. The object of the
guild is to furnish new, plain and suit
able garra-iit-s to tho deserving poor,
whether they be in tho hospitals or in
their own wretched homes. The idea- of
pi vine; new g trmeuts is to raise the self
repeet .f unfortunate people who so
frequently undergo humiliation in be
ing obliged t accept castoff clothing.
The headquarters of tho National
guild are in Philadelphia, where it was
organized nino years ago on a similar
plan to that organize! by Lady Wolvcr
ton and pat into execution in England.
For a time the work in this country was
confined to Philadelphia. A branch was
eventually started in New York, and a
few weeks ago Miss Willard came here
from Philadelphia an J organized the
third city branch of t w National guild.
The meeting was held at the residence
of Mrs. Horace Davis. Miss Willard,
who had been in correspondence with a
number of the prominent ladies of this
city, had her plan well outlined and ex
plained it in such a comprehensive way
that the ladies pretext immediately be
came enthusiastic and organized a local
branch of tho National guild before the
meeting adjourned. Since that it has
continued to grow with surprising rapid
ity. II. ro it is the middle of summer,
when, strictly speaking, all society is
out of town and most; charities are tem
porarily suspended. But this guild has
excited a d:ep rooted rather than a
spasmodic interest, which hai grown
until it has br-eoire a popular fad.
d roups of ladies discussing tho guild
ami otitlinir.g plans for its extension
may be t'onml tiny morning on tho ve
randas cf th fashionable resort hotels.
1c is a recognized topic of conversation.
The organisation leitig nonseetarian
creates a more gos-.ei al and widespread

The work is planned on a simple yet
practical has:.-. Any cno may become a

One peculiarity about this charity is
its freedom from meetings. Thero are
n. weekly or monthly meetings to 1x3
attemle 1 a: id no efter meeting little
gossips to bo cujoyol. The charity has
no social side, which makes its popular
ity all the mure surprising. Once a year
there is a meeting at the time of distri
bution, but that i? all. When it comes
time for the yearlj- distribution, every
reetion sends in its collection. One of
the down town halls will be hired for
tho occasion, and all tho garments that
have been donated by the guild mem
bers during the year will be on exhibi
tion. The public will be invited to at
tend and inspect tho display. Mrs. Eas
ton and Miss Gwin, assisted by several
ladies, will theu scrt over tho articles,
da them up in packages, label them and
direct an expressman where to take
them. Any Reetion is privileged to sug
gest to the committee where it prefers
having its contributions sent. There is
considerable labor attached tothedistr:
bntioti, but the lad.es think nothing of
their time and work, so interested are
they in alleviating the distress of the
poor. San Frauciseo Esaminer.

The good service rendered by women
as factory inspectors is attested by the
appointment of Mi:ss Adelaide M. An
derson to an inspectorial office. Mias
Anderson, it is gratifying to remem
ber, is the fourth lady inspector detailed
to carry out the j revisions of factory
legislation as they a'Ject women in tho
United Kingdom. She is a daughter of
the late Mr. Alexander Gavin Anderson
r.uJ is of Scottisj extraction, though
Melbourne is her birthplace.
She was educat d at (Jirton college
and took honors in 1SS7 in tho moral
sciences tripos. A year ago she took the
Gamble prize at ti o same college by an
essay on "Joannes Scotus. " After quali
fying for her degree Miss Anderson de
voted her time principally to the study
"and teaching of subjects dealing with
ethics and political economy. Since
1693, however, shi has been occupied
with work under tho direction of the
(Secretary of tho labor commission. Tho
experience gained in this way should
prove particularly nseful to Miss An
derson in her new office, as should also
Iier practical knowledge of the co-opera-Uva
movement In tho latter connec-
tion it is interesting to note that 2Iis.s
Anderson has both lectured to and ex
amined, the women of the Co-operative
guild in elementary economics. Shj
has also been for several years a mem
ber of the sou mem section of the Co
operative union. From this brief state
ment of facta it will be evident that
Mi. Anderson possesses str-osrg qualifi
cations, which have doubtless had their
weight with the home secretary in mak

Take a two gallon pitcher of water ia
the right hand, raise jt over your head
and swing it from left to right in a cir
cle for five minutes; then reverse tha
motion, circling it from left to right,
holding the pitcher npright and avoid
ing epiiliDg any of the iluid. When this
can be accomplished with ease and ac
curacy, take a second two gallon pitcher
filled with water and 'swing that first
from left to right with the left hand,
and as facility is acquired reverse the
motion from right to left. More prac
tice will be found necessary with te
left than the right hand. Both hands
EJid arms being rrained, next take a two
gallon pitcher full of water in each
hand and make the movement with both
simultaneously, being careful that the
rapidly revolving pitchers shall not
touch. The vessels must cross each oth
er's orbits at different angles.
This is a most developing exercise to
arms, neck and back, and when perfect
in the exercise it will be; possible to per
form the neat little centrifugal experi
ment of the whirling of an open can of
milk around the head without spilling a
drop. Three montha-cf this simple ex
ercise will perfect the arms of even a
delicate woman most beautifully and
increase her physical strength to a point
where she may without effort control
her entire household. A husband who
sees his wife whirling four gallons
around her head with the grace and
lightness of a butterfly upon tho wing
will hesitate about differing wit h her in
mere matters cf opinion. New Orleans

Will the sweet girl graduate cf this

Will she roll up her sleeves and help

Mrs. Dandridge, the only surviving
daughter of Zachary Taylor, lias recent
ly been visiting Washington. While
General Tavlor was president she mar
ried Colonel Bliss, his chief cf staff.
She presided in tho White House and
was generally known as "pretty Betty
Some time after the death of
Colonel Bliss she married Philip Pen
dleton Dandridge of Winchester, Ya. , a
place which was often the scene of hos
tile encountc rs during the war.
In spite of the fact that her whilom
brother-in-law was president of tho
southern Confederacy, and her brother,
General Dick Taylor, in activo service
at tho head of his command, Mrs. Dan
dridge was never molested or in any
way disturbed. Many of the Union offi
cers had served under her father. Many
had followed him to Mexico 20 years
before. Some of them had t aid their
devoirs to the fair daughters and re
membered "pretty Betty" with warm
admiration. It is said that cue of tho
Federal commanders in Winchester,
passing her house, remarked:
"My eld sweetheart, Betty Bliss,
lives here. I must call upon her at
once." He lost no time in doing so.
The officers of the old army invariably
paid their respects to Mrs. Dandridge.
Although ardently southern in her feel
ings and sympathies, she always re
ceived them with the most gracious
courtesy. Since then, exec-pi an occa
sional European tour, Mrs. Dandridge
has been living quiatiy at Ler home in
Virginia. She is the only surviving
child of the hero of Buena Vista and is
etill a charming woman. Washington
The Daughter scd the Dames.
There is tremendous rivalry between
the two organizations of women known
as tho Daughters of the Revolution and
the Colonial Dames. It is based upon
antiquity of lineage, as to be a Dame
takes a few more ancestors than it does
to be a Daughter. Not lot g ago at a
woman's club reception a stranger from
the west asked to be presented to any
Daughters who might happen to be
present. Some one, who was ignorant
of the nico distinction between the two
orders, forthwith introduced her to a
woman who, at the word Daughter,
drew herself up haughtily mid ex-

My li.. ..ago is quite long enough. " This
incident serves to show the amiable at
titude of tiio Dames.
On the other hand, the Daughters
claim that their order is much more
honorable, inasmuch as Dameship does
not determine one's ancestors to have
been patriots or torics, while the de
scendant of a Revolutionary hero is
stamped with an inalienable loyalty. It
is umpuc stiouably true that if merit of
lineage counts for more than mere
length then the Daughters have the
upper hand. Moreover, the objects of

S'le's a True Heroine.
One of the missionary heroines of the
world is Miss Annie Taylor, a Presby
terian missionary to Tibet. W'ealthy
and cultivated, she decided in spite of
the opposition of her parents to give
herself to missions. She studied medi
cine and worked as a nurse in a hospital
to prepare herself for the work. She
also acquired a knowledge of dentistry.
Largely at her own expense she went to
China, assumed native costume, sctth 1
on the borders of Tibet and began to
learn the language of that fierce people
among whom Christian missionaries
have not yet obtained a foothold.
Having thoroughly prepared herself,
she made an entrance into the country,
and there she has lived for some time.
She has been exposed to the most terri
ble dangers, but the people of Tibet
have spared a woman where they would
not have sprtred a man. The chief sev
eral times tried to poison her. She was
made a prisoner. She was exposed, un
protected, to rain and snow and intense
cold, sometimes sleeping at night in a
hole dug in the ground, and yet through
thousands of dangers, through famine
and death and what was worse than
death, she was safely carried and has re
turned to tell us wonderful things of
that dark nation and to make ready a
force that shall take Tibet for Christ.

and looked over tho crowd and saw that
several women were standing, while a
number of men were occupying comfort

- It riled him to see it, and when his
eyes fell upon a palefaced little woman
holding onto a strap, while a large, lazy
looking man sat near by, he could not
remain silent.
"See here," said he to the big man,
"hero is a lady standing, whilo you
