MR S. N. C. LIBB Y, President.
MRS. ADA PARNHA M. Treasurer.
The Woman's Relief Corps held
it annual convention in Cleveland,
in September. This society has
usually had on its badge a picture
of some hero of the civil war.
This time it was a copy of the his
toric picture placed in the "White
House" by the W C. T. U. that
of the gracious and concientious
hostess, Lucy Webb Hayes.. A
an Ohio woman, a relief corps mem
ber, a consistent temperance advo
cate, and founder of the Ohio
Home for Soldiers' and Sailors'
Orphans, this choice gave univer
sal satisfaction. I was most fitting
that the change was made by the
president, Mary Carr, of Color
ado, a State which has emancipated
her women.
It was this writer's privilege to
see this picture painted by Hun
tingdon. I is a full length por
trait, wonderfully life-like in ex
pression, and is as vivid to me as
when I saw it in the Green Room
of the "White House." This room
i next the East Room, in the
-outhern front. I takes its name
from the prevailing color of the
decorations. The ceiling is beauti
fully ornamented with medallions
containing representations of musi
cal instruments and cherubs, and
garlands of flowers. The wood
work is of old ivory, richl}' adorn
ed with gold. I see these only
dimly, as I recall that visit, but the
portrait 1 can never forget. Of all
the paintings I saw in the Capitol
and "White Htfuse"' this one of
Mrs. Hayes and "Westward. Ho!
{painted by Emanuel l^entze, and
costing $20,000) placed over the
landing of the western staircase, in
the Capital, were a revelation to
me, and I have longed to under
stand true art since seeing them.
I can understand how such
paintings could be produced by a
master hand, but the paintings in
the ceiling of the rotunda seem to
have been done by an almost
superhuman hand. You stand and
look one hundred and eighty feet,
and jet feel that if you lifted your
hand you could touch the forms
represented theron in the allegori
cal paintings by Brumidi: Wash
ington, with Freedom and Victory
at his right and left, and thirteen
female figures, representing the
original States.
May God hasten the day when
these painted forms, now hovering
over the Capitol, may represent
consecrated womanhood hovering
over the nation, and sin be routed
by their pure influence. Oh
women, awake to a sense of your

Amos R. Wells, of the Christian
Endeavor, reports that he has made
a study of the effect of woman's
ballot in Utah, Wyoming, Col
orado and Idaho, (the only States
where women can vote) and
declares that clean men and just
measures are being placed before
the voters and politics cleansed at
its fountain. "Good women,"
ay Mr. Wells, "have buried
many a corrupt politician in
political graveyard, and may God
give strength to their spades."
A Fiendish Attack.
An attack was lately made on C. F.
Collier of Cherokee, Iowa, that nearly
proved fatal. It came through his
kidneys. His back got so lame he
could not stoop without great pain, nor
sit in a chair except propped by cush
ions. No remedy helped him until he
tried Electric Bitters, which effected
such a wonderful change that he writes
he feels like a new man. This marvel

A Typical South African Store.

almost out of the question. Within

A CompositioB on "My Life" by
Ina Leathers.
The following composition on

youthful frankness. The compo

the 29th, at Princeton, Minnasota.
I did not have any brothers or
I had an aunt which I stayed
with all the time. Mamma couldn't
keep me at home. I ran away
every chance I could get. Some
nights I would get up out of my
bed and go over to my aunt's
house to sleep with her.
One morning she was going
away, she thought I would not
get up before she went. Bu she
was mistaken, for when she got up
she found me on her doorstep
sitting down, with nightgown and
my sunbonnet on, and my shoes
and stockings in my arms. I went
with her too.
When I was four years old my
little brother was born on 1896, on
November the 13tb.

year old we moved out in the
