Washington hears with much interest the talk of Judge A. M. Jackson of Winfleld being a probable candidate for the Democratic nomination for governor of Kansas. There are many Republicans as well as Democrats in the Kansas contingency in Washing ton who have the highest regard for Mr. Jackson's ability. When he served a term in the house he showed himself to measure up with the big men in congress. And, incidentally, he made many friends during his term. There are Kansas Democrats here who point to Mr. Jackson as one of the biggest men of his party in the Sun flower state. They feel certain that should he be nominated this year as the Democratic nominee for governor, he would easily be elected. Myron B. Robinson, of LaCygne, Kan., is in the city for a few days.

Came Miss Nila Mac. the new intrenue wun tne Aiajestic company, who ap pears the first time in Topeka in "The Chorus Lady," is a Kansas girl. Un til about five years ago. when she went on the stage her home was in Arkansas City. Her father, the late D. C. Mac. was a Santa Fe engineer and also prominent in Masonic circles. Mr. Mac, unlike a great many fath ers, encouraged his daughter's thea trical ambition, but he insisted that if she became an actress at all. she trv to reach the top of her profession. wun tnis in view sne studied in a Chicago dramatic school, and also took a course in German and French. She thought a knowledge of- these languages might help her in portray ing characters or types of these na tionalities. Her first theatrical engagement was with the Briant Bros. Comedians. Her mother traveled with her for several years. Then Mr. Mac died. While the daughters company, one of the Robert Sherman troupes was in Pa- ducah, Ky., a chance for a good busi ness opening came and Mrs. Mac moved there. Miss Mac came to Topeka from Pa- ducah. She is a decided blond with the light gold hair and blue eyes. OWN GUN KILLS HIM. The Ramblers' club will have a luncheon Monday at 12 o'clock at the home of Mrs. J. E.

After the dinner Mrs. Charles M. Sheldon will give an illustrated lec ture on Arizona. The constitution and by-laws of the r.ew Topeka Federation of Women, are at the desk in the Y. W. C. A. build ing, and the women who wish to join the federation will find the constitution at that place for signature. An explanation of the purpose and use of the federation scholarship fund, is made in the following article wmta was read before the last meeting of the association, by Mrs. D. L. McEachron: "The president has asked me to tell the story of the educational work of the federation, and I am glad, for I believe in it and know something of its possibilities. This work was begun five years ago at the close of Mrs. W. A. McCarter's administration, and in terest in it in the federation has con tinued ever since, though it has not grown as the author of it hoped it would, I am sure, nor has the commit tee ever had at its disposal the funds it might have used and has often been appealed to for. "A few requirements were made in the beginning, governing the use of the funds. The girl to be helped should be a Topeka girl, a high school gradu ate, and of such scholarship as would, in the judgment of the committee, war rant helping her to further study, and she should have the money without in terest, with the understanding that she should return it two years after gradu ation, when she had had the opportuni ty of earning something. To create the fund for helping her to be known the inhburn scholarship each club member was to contribute annual ly ten cents and to secure from some one else anotner ten cents. At mat time there were 500 members, which would mean 100, nearly enough for the tuition of two girls, enough to help one girl substantially besides her tuition. Now this extra ten cents has always been a stumbling block in the way of some of our club women. It was the thought in the mind of the author of the movement, not that every clut woman in Topeka could give, with no very great sacrifice, 20 cents to a move ment so far reaching in its results, but by asking half of it from some woman not a club member, she would be advertising both the college and the federation. Some of the clubs have given but 10 cents annually, others have given 25, but I think that in -few instances has the original advertising plan been carried out. The first year $36.35 was collected, the second year $47.75, each year showing an increase in the collections. We have collected during the years since its founding $289.88, and have helped five girls. One girl used the fund two years, the soph omore and junior years, stayed out and taught' a year, and is this year crajiuatine from college, one of the , finest girls in the class. Another girl, after using the money one-half year, because of a death in her home had to give up a college career and turn wage earner.- A third girl used the fund all of last year, and is in school this year with the help of $35, secur ed outside of the federation by your educational committee. She will grad uate in June and is well fitted to earn money now to help five or six younger brothers and sisters, which she is am bitious to do. A fourth girl used the fund part of one term, and then be cause or illness naa iu sive ut n school work. She was a motherless girl, so anxious for an education that she was attempting to work for her board and clothes, at the same time doing her college work. We had no money except wnai wuuiu yaj nc tuition, because we were already pay ing for our third girl. After breaking down she returned to us the unused tuition.

"Your educational committee hae repeated opportunities to help worthy girls, but because of no large funds at our command, cannot do a great deal. Within the last few weeks we have secured the money from outside sources to get glasses for a girl whe has no means except what her hands can earn, but who is putting up a brave fight for her education. Ham pered with weak eyes, and so far from being able to get glasses herself, it seemed to us this was educational work. "We have now but $8.58 in the treas ury with which to begin next year's work. Only four clubs have paid in any money this year, we presume be cause of the quiescent condition of the federation, but we sincerely hope the clubs will not drop this most import ant work. "We would like also to recommend to the women who contribute to thi fund that their educational commit tee be given freedom to use their besl judgment in requiring that the money given to girls shall be returned. In some cases it becomes a burden in stead of a help, as in the case of the young girl who had to become the wage earner of the family, the young girl who had nervous prostration and no health or strength to earn money to support herself and the young girl who wants to help her brothers and sisters. Give them the privilege of re turning the money but do not require it. Those who see continually worthy girls struggling for their education and must answer their appeals for help hope so much that the women of To peka will continue their small gifts each year that this fund may con tinue.

The woman suffrage party of New York City has issued a leaflet entitled The Catholic Church Not Opposed to Woman Suffrage. This leaflet says that the church as an institution is not opposed to votes for women, and that if certain priests or laymen of the church are against it, their opin ions are purely personal. Some of the most distinguished of the prelates of the church are advocating suffrage. Prominent churchmen have taken part in some or the western cam paigns for woman suffrage, and many public men of the church are pledged to the cause. The church contends that you are a better churchman if you are a good American and believe in a true democracy. Jane Addams, who will speak at the Kansas state convention in Larne'l, May 7 and 8, is giving suffrage mono logues at the Majestic theater in Chi cago.
