One of the women's clubs at tho front in aggressive movements is tho Travel ers' club of western Pennsylvania. The members are all women of ability, many of the women of leisure, though the majority are actively engaged in many other progressive movements iu Alle ghany City, both educational and phil anthropic. During the past year the club has taken up tor its study the his tory, literature, art and sociology of France. An interesting portion of the course was the stutly of the influential women of the nation. This study wag enlivened by the discussion of such live topics as "Environment Versus Heredi ty," ""Woman's Influence in Municixal Reform, "Should Hospitals Be Support ed by the State?" and "Organized Work of "Women Its Help and Hindrances?" Tho study for tho coining year will be Italy. Miss Jennie Hindmau at tins last meeting was re-elected president of the club, making this her third term. She ia the s-ister of that food suCrago work er, Hiss ilatilda Ilindman. Vp With tiie Times. As the trains disgorged their living freight in Jersey City tho other after noon about 4 o'clock a tall, graceful, stylishly dressed young womt;n entered one of the ferryboats bound for tha Cortland street slip. Slu? walked leisure ly through the boat to tho forward dtck, beckoned imperiously to an astonished email knight of the bru.-h standing there, placed her foot upon his box said gazed placidly out over the watt r. The passengers in tiie cabin looked on in mild surprise, and an Italian who stood near was ntttrly absorbed by the spectacle. Two business n. n also look ed carelessly on. "A woman has to do everything that a man does tbt.so days," said one, with a bored air, "and now she is having her boots blacked. " But she was not.

They supply growing plants, the presents that most people love to give. The growing plant woman inquires if you would like to give your sisttr, your aunt or 3our cou sin a rubber plant, tall and green, or a stately, spreading palnj, or ft-rhaps a big pot of calla lilies. She also Uiiks about the flowerpot. Would you prefer a handsome blue one, with lovely raised work upon it? Then she goes down town, gets the pot and starts the plant. By Christinas timo it will be very beautiful. The beauty of this arrangement is that the woman who buys thy present is charged only the full price of tho pot and a nominal sum for tho plant 25 cents or so. The commission on thei pot and the "quarter" pays the merchant for her trouble iu caring for the plants. Boston Gdobe. Mrs. Uarrie's Itecjuest. Mr. J. 51. Barrie, who confessedly married that ho might use l is wife's hairpins to clean his pipes, has, it seems, instead laid down his pipe alto gether at the request of the owner of the hairpins. Before we sympathize too much with the author of that charming reverie, "My Lady Nicotine, " or frown too harshly on the tyrant bride, let it be added that Mrs. Barrie only ''re quested," after Mr. Barrie's recent ill ness, caused entirely, it is said, by per sistent smoking. This devotee of tobac co was accustomed to smuke from morn ing until midnight, stopping only for his meals. To Perfume Money. A "money disinfectant" is the latest invention meant to woo coins from fem inine pocketbooks. It is a perfumed button with a sandalwood fragrance intended to pdace in the pockets of a purse to sweeten the rumpled, greasy bills which carry unpleasant suggestions of their previous abiding places. The New Jersey law, passed this year, that there must be nine school trustees called out a Epecial meeting in Hamniontou, N. J. , and three women were elected as part of the nine Miss Anna Pressey, Mrs. Ezra Packard and Mrs. Beverage. In New York there are now 20 or more "trained janitresses" who earn 400 a year and upward. The first woman janitor began her -work about two years ago. She took card of an apartment house. A recent act of the Louisiana legisla ture makes it a misdemeanor for any retail liquor dealer to allow any woman to sell liquor.

Just at that iiioiiietic the birds were all singing in chorus. The woodcutter had seen a nest, which ho wanted to get for Francine, the pretty brown eyed jdrl who minded the goats at the Gaudelin's farm. The young woodcutter would have done anything to win a smile from Francine, and so he quickly took ofl his sabots and climbed tho tree. The. ne was very high up, and he had to cling to the branches with legs and amis. Just as lie had nearly reached the nest he heard a voice below asking him wdiat he was doing, and looking down he saw Michel Lerouse, tho roadmender. "Birds' nesting at your uge? What do you want it for?" 'That's none of your business." 1 "I'll bet it':s for Francine that you risk breaking your neck. If it is, I'll stop your getting it, that's all." "That's good," laughed the young , woodcutter as ho let himself quickly down from one branch to another, and then, 1 fivinc :l final iinnn. was ennn At. t,li sida ! ! of the roadmender. I "Book here!" he said, putting his hand j firmly on the other man's arm, "it seems i to me we've had enough of this sort of j thing. I know you are in love with Fran j cine, and you know I am, but I've got the I luck to bo the? ono she has chosen. This sort of thing always goes its own way, and no one can interfere. She's going to ! marry me, and I don't see any use in your i turning my enemy for that. We've known I each other all our lives let's make it up, ! Michel." And the young woodcutter held j out his hand. I The other man Bhrugged his shoulders j and took no notice of the proffered hand. "You won t give that nest to Francine, that's all I've got to say." j Tho young woodcutter commenced climbing the tree again, but this time he did not stop half way, but went on up to the branch in which the nest was built, and then, looking down, he said, "Now's your time; if you want to stop my getting the nest, you've only to come up here." As the young man lifted it carefully from between the branches the poor moth er bird in gnat distress hovered around over his head. "There, there," he said, "I shall bring it back tonight. I only want to show it to Francine." He looked down just at this instant and saw that Michel was holding a huge stono ready to throw at him. 'If you don't looso the nest, I shall de stroy it for you." In another instant ho had thrown the huge stone, and Jacques was lying on the ground at his feot, tho blood oozing from a wound in his head. Jacques neither spoke nor stirred. Michel knelt down beside him and called him, but all iu vain, and then, seized with a terrible ldta, he rushed to the vil lage for he lp, telling every one that tho young woodcutter had fallen from a high oak tree and cut his head on a stone. Half an hour later the apparently dead body of the poor young woodcutter was carried home, and after tho noise of voices and foot steps had died away the wood was quiet once again, save for the singing of the birds. No one susptcted Michel, and the follow ing year, when the tragic event was no more talked about, no one was surprised at his engagement to Francine. Their marriage took place very soon after their engagement, and they went to live in a pretty little cottage built at the foot of a mountain. One day, when Francine had been ar ranging their littlo sitting room, she turned suddenly around to her husband and said: "There, doesn't everything look nice, Michel? We are as happy as the birds in their nest." "Ah don't say that!" he exclaimed." The roadmender stopped and looked up at the height of the tree. He shuddered, but ri kind of magnetic influence seemed to draw him closer and closer to the tree. A cold perspiration broke out all over him, and ho thought he saw marks of blood high up on the bark. Nearer and nearer ho went to the tree, and at last he lifted up his arms as though imploring something. The gnarled branches over" his head shook with the icy wind. He took Lis leather belt in his hand and climbed the tree as Jacques had done. The only birds that he could hear now were the rnvens croaking! They looked down at him pitilessly, their black heads came nearer and nearer, and their croak ing was louder and louder. "Quick! Quick!" they seemed to say. "Be quick, FANCY HOME APRONS. we are waiting quid: ! quick !" The road mender knotted tt-e lrup with trembling hands to the strongest branch. He put his head in the noose and then let himself fall. The horrihlo sensation of that sudden drop had awoke Michel from his sh ep. Ho hastened to dress, anxious to get rid of tho remembrance of his nightmare. It was a bright sunshiny May morning, and the birds were singing in all the trees. And Francine and Jacques? It was their wedding day, and no doubt poor Michel's jealousy and misery tho night Ix'lore had caused him to have that terrible dream in which everything had becu so painfully vivid. Jacques was go ing to marry Francine today. He, Michel, had lest her forever, and furious at tho thought he paced up andVdown his little room. Then the dream came back to him again in all its horror. Oh, tho tortures he had Buffered, tho fearful remorse that he had gone through ! No! Better, far better, this reality than that dreamt Tho village befls were chiming merrily for the wedding, and Michel, dressed in his Sunday clothes, was on his way to the church. The primroses were peeping out at tho foot of the trees and the birds were sing ing on every side as he passed through the wood which led from his home to the vil lage. Involuntarily he looked up at tho nests in tho old oak tree and smiled as he thought of the terrible night they had caused him. The bells rang out more and more gayly, and tho birds sang louder and louder, and Michel hurried to tho wed ding. Million. The Meaning of Sympathy. It was n clever Frenchwoman who said: "Those who have suffered much are like those who know many languages. They have learned to understand and to be un derstood by many. It is an impossibility to fully sympathize with another's experi ence unless it has been at some time one's own. In trouble or grief wo turn instinc tively to some one whom we know has been through the same experience. It is the old human longing for companionship that shows it3elf. The feeling is strong within us that "she will feel and know with mo.' Therein lies the meaning of 6ympathy. " HE SPOKE. And Took Occasion to Introduce the Chil . dren to an Unrivaled Attraction. "I see, " said tho smiling superintend ent cf tho Sunday school, "we have a stranger with us today. We are always glad to hear from visitors, and if tho brother over there near tho stove has a word of encouragement to give us wo shall be glad to listen to him. " The stranger, though evidently some what surprised, came forward and mounted 'ho superintendent's platform. "I had not expected to be called upon to make any remarks," ho said, with the easy manner of one used to speaking in public, "and yet I hold myself in readiness wherever I may bo to advance the cause of truth ami goodness by every means in my power. It has been my ob servation and experience, children," he continued, "that truth always pays. Never tell a lie. Never deviate from the exact facts, however strong the temptation may be. In the course of a somewhat varied career, in which. I have been thrown much before tho pub lic, I have made it a rulo to show my colors, to be upright, just, honorable in all ray dealings with my fellow men, and to bo prepared to back up with fact3 whatever representations I may make, A reputation for truthfulness and implicit honesty is a possession no body can take away from you. " He paused a moment, set his lips firmly and cast a searching look over his audience, Then, raising his voice, he went on: 'I6 has been my lot, children, to minister in a humble, and, I trust, a useful, way to the instruction of the peo ple. I have sought to combine amuse ment with that instruction. Whatever tends to instruct and amuse the people elevates them. The works of nature, children, are wondert-.:!.

I shall hope, dear children, to see you all there. Tell your friends. " Amid a silence dense enough to cut with a knife the eloquent stranger step pel down from the platform anel re sumed his scat. The superintendent had unwittingly roused the celebrated os trich farm orator of the Midway plai sauce. Chicago Tribune. In EUret IIo was obviously desperate. "Do you lovo me?" he suddenly de mauded. "Yes," she answereel at once, al though it was the first time the subject had been broached. Ho shifted uneasily in his chair. "Your frankness," ho faltere'd, "is er" "Engaging," she suggested, with a sweet smile, which gradually faded away when she learned that he had brought no ling. Detroit Tribune l'timable Ignorance. A Chicago man in Letington, soon ! after Garfield's death, wis talking of tho bungling of tho surgeons, when one of tho Kentnckians presen'; remonstrated against tho terrible treatment and it3 results. "Well, a Kentucky surgeon, would have done no better," said tho Chicagoaii. "You are right, sah, " re plied tho other. "Kentucky surgeons know nothing about treating wounds in tho back, eah.
