one gone by 18JS
When the first cloudVf war was seen in
the horizon a resolution to be sent to the
head of the Government was iiassed at a
meeting held at theStrathmoreArmsof this
import The Daughters of the American
ltcvolution have an organization in every
State and will hold themselves in readi
ness for their countrys needs when called
This was followed by a meeting of the
National Board in April when specific ac
tion was taken
It resulted in the Society being commis
sioned by the War Department to provide
all hospital nurses sent to Cuba and tho
camps in this country Tho result was
that no year has this Society accomplished
so much that was so vital to the country and
tho Daughters of the American Rovoiution
have interwoven themselves into the fiber
of National activities aud will share ii
its glories

by tho President Mrs Daniel Manning

Eighteen members signified their willing

self sacrificing devotion and work through
the long days and nights of that Summer

islands of the sea Money was sent to the
different hospital sugeons and supplies to

work of jewctiiiK a monument to Lafayette
as a proof that his help in an hour of need
had not been forgotten
A fev ears ago a few patriotic women
conceived the idea of presenting in tho
name of the Daughters of the American
Revolution and the women of America a
statue of Washington to France
It is to lie a bronze equestrian statue by
the sculptor Daniel French It will be pre
sented to France during the Paris Exposi
tion of 1901
The committee appointed by the Presi
dent of the Society for the year did good
work notwithstanding the large drafts
made for relief work

This is but the alphalwt of the history
whose first pages are lwing written Mrs
Mannings administration will carry the
organization over into the next century
With tho executive ability she has already
displayed the hand writing is on the wall
The great object in hand for this Socie
ty is the building of a Continental Hall an
object near at heart with the first Presi
dent Mrs Caroline Scott Harrison
The need of a permanent home for the
organization was apparent from the begin
ning RecorJs and relics were accumu
lating and no place to protect them On
the 1 lth of December 1891 it was there
fore der hired by vote that all fees derived
from Life Memberships and Chapter Char
ters should lie set aside as a permanent
building fund This fund is not to he used
for any purpose until a sum sufficient lias
accumulated to begin the erection of a fire
proof building of sufficient capacity to ac
commodate the records the relies and in
which the meetings oi the Soeitv can Iks
The idea has grown year by year until
to day a building of fair proportions has
dev loped and taken on more and more the
features of a Memorial building with ca
pacity for committee rooms Hoard room
and for the work of the active officers and
their assistants
A Continental Hall Committee has the
welfare of the project in hand and has
lKen before Congress and sought lo obtain
a site for the building In fact a site was
appropriated at one sssion of Congress
but it was afterward found that this par
ticular piece of ground was under prohibi
tion of transfer and Congress had no juris
diction or power over said piece of land
It would hardly lie possible to conjecture
that Congress will not transfer another
site over which they have power for the
Daughters have in hand about o0000 to
ward the building and this is the first step
ever taken to carry out the proposition of
Congress of an early day that memorial
buildings be erected throughout the Capital
City to represent the different States
This Continental Hall will be a Memorial
Hall for all the States for every State in
the will be represented therein
Tho building will be a reality monu
ments will be raised historic spots will lie
protected unwritten history recorded and
the country will always have a hand-maid

A Plague of Cuttlefish
The fishermen on parts of the cotst of
Northern Queensland are complaining of
the ravages committed by immcnsciiunihers
of cuttlefish which have suddenly made
their apix arauce in northern Australian
waters To such an extent is the sea
infested with the cuttlefish that the lisher
inen often bring un as many as 300 or 400
of them in a single haul of the net Not
only can nothing lie donewith the cuttle
fish but their weight attaining in the case
of the bigger specimens to as much as
12 pounds to ll pounds breaks the nets
The presence of the cuttlefish too makes
it very difficult fo haul the nets on board
The fish cling so tightly to the side of the
IhkiU with their tentacles that to make
them loose their hold the ax has to be used
or boiling water has to lie poured over
them Even when on hoard they still give
much trouble as the only way to kill them
is tocut off their heads A similar visitation
was recorded aliout 40 years ago
Substitute for Celluloid
A Consular report from Freiburg states
that a new substance closely resembling
celluloid has been produced by boiling
untaiined leather in oil It has the prop
erty of lieing a good electrical insulator
and can lo used for many purposes This
new material to which tho -inventor has
given the name marloid can lie polished
on tiotli sides and in its structure resembles
horn and can be pressed or worked into
any form whatsoever either directly after
the Ixiilitig procersor laten affer the hard
ened hide has been made soft and elastic
by toiing dipiied into a salt or ulum bath
By means of xlishing this material can
lie made almost transparent and it eanlc
given different degrees of hardness so that
a substance isobtaiued which can be knead
ed cmlOTssed stamped pressed drawn
and twisted into any desired shaie style
or design
