Among the nmany, Jan .ubi'lik, lie young l'tu.emnltn 'violinisit who has cr(at(ed such a furor in thi' East. It was staitled that he was Polish, lbut the musical joulrals say h(. s a IthlicInian. lie is self-educated. While hit 'arries with him four violins, a ~5000 Straditverus, and others( costing prone o000t to $j000, his dearest treasure is a liltle .ouden violin his father made hin', as they were too , Ipor to buy hnim one. Another told of the little town of Economy, where dwelt a people who did not believe in mar riage and who gradually died off. John Itruce organized a brass band of the dwellers in that city and Mr. Wilson, I director of the Pittsburg orchestra, meeting this Bruce, went down to Econ omy to hear them; and right on the spot I engaged them for an ex's nded tour. The 1 band is said to be something really mnag nificent. They play in the church, music being part of the seylce. They will open in Carnegie hall, New York, on February 14. Another told of a 9-year-old progedy, a portege of Lyman Gage, who also opens his tour at Carnegie hall. In dis ussilon it developed that Josef Hoffman ts the only boy wonder who has ever completely fulfilled the promise of his youth. He is only 25 years of age now. W'here was an animated discussion over the question of how far and how long youthful musical genulses could be pushed ahead, and the after effect. One paid all genulses were freaks, scientists so stating, their brains never being well balanced. And they are always nervous. Plodding children always come out ahead of the ones who are highly gifted, Because learning easily they lack application. The physical being suf tore when they are forced to study and pushed ahead. MWI' Allen then played a nocturne by 7lhe orlginatol of the nocturne , John _ald A vocal duo, "It Was a Lover and His Lass," from "As You Like It," writ ten by Thomas Mallet, was given by Miss Pettibone and Mrs. Green Majors. It has a sweet refrain. "Sweet Lovers Love the Spring," Miss Skelly. A dis cuassion ensued on the music of that period. Chairman Donnelly then arose and ad dressed the club, stating that for once in her life she was glad that a member of the music department had failed to furnish the paper assigned her. She said that It was the afternoon set aside by the governors as McKinley Meniorial day, it being the anniversary of his birth. As she ceased speaking a huish fell upon the room and, as reiquested, members of the club rose and told of the many incidentq they had either read or knew personally of his ever-loving, ten er cture of hils frail, invalid wife, every one endlnog with the statemtent that while MlcKlilihy would be admired for his sitiat'SIanship, ri'espected (' for his high IImorail hail'rac'ter by nLmn, he woeuld ever hold it warI ' plluie int the hearts of all i'.ontll n by i 'etiSOli tl ol that uniwa.V t'rilg, inlllo iinlle'r said that shei wals in New oil k, In the hot' I parlor, when thit IK , ,can u, of tiit shiooting of M h'iiitiey, I:1d 4111(- lilticl gill was so O t'rco ii' , with grief that she' to ld not Iven tllitn t' lthe Sympathiznll g women ati irounld hlcr. hlr father explained that whein the president and his wife were stopping at the Scott ihorni in Sian Francisco, his famiily was living next door. The little girl tried several ilies to take a snap picture of the president with her kodak. )One morninig he turned unexpectedly Ald ct' ught her ii the ant. Instead of tcuing nllnoyed he smiled and asked her how she wanted him to stand. iH took the m'veral positions she asked for and the little oe secured some excellent protograplhs. Then she asked the presl thnit f she could not send some flowors to Mrs. McKiInley and he told her that Mrs. McKinley would be delighted. The little girl hurriedly picked some of the choicest Ialossomls and the plresident re traced his footsteps and himself ear trid tiheit ilowe'rs to hIls wife. Every mornitng after that these two would have' a little chat over the fence, ending with a handshake. To the little child McKinlelhy was the greatest hero in the world. Anotihe rI nt'mber, whoi lived in ('anton, andt withini sight of the capital build ing, told of how the McKinleys lived in tin adjoining house to the capital. The officos of the ipreiLdent were so arranged that ihe 0l1th look 'ir'io the capital into the windows of his wife's treot.

Thei' chiid began to sob and thei presi delit's quick ivye noted the scene. In staitttly he left the rveiiving line atnd bde( them nllow the child to enter. As she still suoblbed he bent over and talke, to her and taking ait rare orchid fronm his coat placed it in thei little hand. A nld so it went. Incident after in idient; .(ties i' 'ter scenies be'ing de scriled, and during the narration his favorite song, "Netarer My God to Thee," was sung. Mrs. T. A. (rigg read the following tine poem, written by W. C'. Shippen, which, by request of the club, is printed in full. It will be remembered that when McKinley was told that lie mroust dii he murmured, "It is Clod's way. His will be" done": C:lid has his way, my heart be still Without delay accept his will; Thus end life's day with golden sun, I '"It is (lod's way: His will he done." Thy ~ ill be done! in childhood taught, This prayer Divine was holy thought, In manhood prime there's holier none Than humbly say, "Thy will be done!" No words so great as thoughtful prayer In highest state, 'mid statesman's care When ends life's day, at set of sun How blest to say, "Thy will be done." Now ends all pain, now ceases strife, Now heaven 1 gain, and endless life, Welcome bright day, all darkness gone, "It is God's way; His will be done." Thus died the good, thus prayed the' great; While by him stood his stricken mate, And heard him pray in tender tone, "It is God's way; His will be done." Thus passed from earth Columbia's son, Great from his birth, no task undone, Great was his way, great trophy won, In death to say, "Thy will be done." This heritage the world be given, With heart so pure, and soul so brave, With love to all, malice to none, "It Is God's way; His will be done." Thus sank a noble man to rest, His life-long goodness thus expressed, "It is God's way; His will be done." Butte Girls' Club. The BIutte Girls' club gave their sQ. retary, Miss Mae Mennie, a dellight I surprise on Wednesday last, their re. ular meeting day. The girls met at the home of Miss Rosala Murphy, then tp gether went to Miss Mennie's home ald greatly surprised her. The club presented her with a hand= some finger purse, as it was her birtp. day. After the regular meeting the club enjoyed original papers and readings by Misses Nettle Hchuffle, (Iladys Christle, Ralpha $purier and Nora Nichols. After the interesting program was con cludc d a dilty birthday supper was ei Joyed. The Atlas Club Social. One of the most delightful functions ever given by the Atlas club wan the one of this week, when the hostesses were Mrs. A. J. Daum, Mrs. E. A. (ilbert, Mrs. J. R. Mcalnuflln and Mrs. J. L. Holmes. It was given at the home of Mrs. Dautm, No. 12 Main street, Meaderville. The house was charmingly decorated with garlands of smilax (·stooned on portiPres and curtains, formlning frelze for the arch between the parlors and enwreathing the electrollers. The flow ers usedl were pure white and cream roses in shower bouquets in vases throughout the rofilhs. Thie L'ub colors are green and yellow and they were much In evidence, even the dal'nty green pen cils given to the guests to write down their answers in the guesslng game wive tied with yellow ribbons, each guest rp taining her pencil as a souvenir. The four hoss sees wore dainty l,.e aprons wit h cunnIIIIng ribbon bows and sashes. Tile refreshments served were simply perfection: the most dellclopa .ake, and salad that really was a dream and not a nlghtnlare'; coffee "like yoyr nilotlher made," if sii \w:i;( an cxcelptiop hlly tine cook, and nlnly othter dainti[ps dlelighted the guests. IBut first they ha.l a priogrlon; MIss Itst reltetd "Tdhe IEu1ir'lhonig" in Gite man: Miss Price sang "Tell fhr I Loya Her So" and for ani cnecre. "Love's .~d cwee it Song." Mrs. H. C. RIicker sang '"lottom of the D)eepl, H.Iu Soa" and for In Ion.ore, "Last Night," the latter .$n tierlnatn. Mrs. (iretcn Majors sang lrahm's 'lullaby" and for an encore, in German. "Cupid's Sinlhes."

The guests were: Miss Turnley, Mys. Blackburn, Mrs. J. Q. Goss, Miss fda (irossman, Mrs. Crossman. Tilhe feature of the day, however, was the guessing contest, the questions and proper answers following. Mrs. E. C. Price won the first and second prizes, edition de lure of Francis Bacon's essays. IIJ. MRS. .. W BUZZO, Who Read an Interesting Papr before the Homer Club Monday. As will be seen some of the questions are hard, no one answering them all: 1. An exclamation and a contraction Otis. 2. What is always rewarded? Merritt. 3. Part of a wagon, and what God never does-Wheeler. 4. A small natural stream of water-Brook. 5. To make fun of and a letter of the alpl.abet -Chtffee. 6. What no one wishes to be considered-Green. 7. What distances on land are reckoned by-Miles. 8. That which all should obey, and a weight Lawton. 9. The substance of trees Wood. 10. A beautiful flower, and the Dutch word for fleld-Rocsevelt. 11. An article of food and a male child-Sam! son. 12. A wagon, and what we should spoke of the early Christian burials dur ing the second, third and fourth cen turies: of the devastation of the cata combs by the Goths and later by the Lombards; of their being forgotten for six centuries; of their discovery again again by Boslo in 1881, of his researches and of the method of their construction. The second paper, "Paul Veronese," by Mrs. Hammond, gave an interesting ac count of this painter, who first attracted attention when the painted in the church of St. Sehastion "The History of Esther." The pictures of Vesonese, though grand, have little sublimity and even when they represent spiritual subjects. 'glow with-the enjoyment of human life. A'¶RE CLV S. Aý 3AR TO. MAT2UMO/#YI Akn ft vsascd OCmi.) V .ER? deci4edl-,J.. " " In fact, any pursuit, oooupation or business afillation that eon sumes a wopan's time or engrosses her attention bars from her heart and mind the inclination for sentiments that are the landmarks leading to the haven of matrimony. A .woman, whether old or young, who becomes Inoculated with the club fad, be. comes correspondingly inoculated in an aggravated form with a sense of her own importance and fancies that her mission In life is to gather Into the fold converts to the club teachings, and her enthusiasm leaves her neither time nor inclination for the sentitmental tendencies of her sex. The aim and object of her club she con Alders her first and all-engrossing duty. Unmarried women are often well charged dynamos of both energy and self-esteem. They cherish the idea of a Inlssion in life and the awakening to the fact that the charm of girlhood is quick ly and surely passing often tinctures the comilng years with a strong flavor of acidity. It Is when The coming of the crow's feet Jtings the death knell of the beaux feet that she finds an escape valve In tho club fads whereon to expend the surcharge of inergy. With the consciousness that she is growing less attractive to the opposite sex, she takes up the cudgels in defense of her own, and if she has the Imagnetil forces within her to become a leading spirit among them she finds a solace in the deference paid her and soon becomes not only spoiled by that deference, but also arrogant and self-assertive. Slle is always surrounded by a mob of women, who follow subserviently in ,her train. The closer her affiliation with her club the further recedes her charm for tile op. posite sex. If she possesses the means to live well, her home becomes the ren d.,Zvolus for women impregnated with mutually congenial theories, which soon verges more or less into a sort of freak incubator Institution wherein is hatched llways he--Walnwrlght. 13. A synonym for cunnllig---Schley. 14. Pat of a grate where things: are put to kee,) warm, and a male descendent-Hobson. 15. A story :and a ·otjunctlon--Taylor. 16.

Who was Ihe "nrllll of dtestlny?"--Naloleon. 20. What blalarialln leader announced him self as 'tlhe scourge of (tod?"-Altwlld. 21. Who was "Highland Mary?"-Mary ('a mpbell. It will be seen that nearly all the an swers are names of our most falllous naoval men and soldlers. The Homer Club. Last Monday.the Homer club met at the home of Mrs. E. J. Groeneveld and as Is cu.stomawy on the last Monday of the mionth carried out a special program, whclh proved to be one of the most in terestlng of the year. Mrs. Leonard gave a very complete ac count of the Catacombs, tracing the ori gin of the term cttacumbae to two Greek words meaning a hollow, and showing how, from the ninth century on, it was used to designate a burial place. She the often woata than frem lh Ideas that at times startle a community. These ab normal spinsters oherlhI an abiding hor ror of masculinity, for the reason that the closer a woman's efRilations Wth other women Is drawn the, ndre tud4a .. ly will men avoid her.. Women's clubs are the eontinuous pet' formante death knell of sentiment. When a woman Is deeply Interested In anything or anybody, whether It be a man, a baby, a dog or a horse or a club, that one par ticular object she makes the constant, unflaggingla, rrepressible topic of all her conversation. If she is In love, she can only think of that one man and all her speech Is the echo of the "think." If it is a baby, that le the one and only baby that ever happened, although those who listen know that there have beefi others. If it's a club she wants to ham mer everybody with it, and soon the idea of attentions from the opposite sex be comes a forlorn or rather 4, dim-in-the distance hope. There are a few men pos sessed of sufficient courage to face a real live, aggressive club woman with his love in his eyes and his heart in his hand. She loves it and is in a chronic state of antagonism against even her own good Impulses. This independence becomes to her infinitely duerer than any love a man might proffer her. HIow often do we hear a woman argu Ing against the very dictates of her own heart? In spi aking of a love affair they will say emlphatically, "Yes, I would marry him, but I hate to relinquish my rwn independence," and this applies alike to the woman of the clubs and to the business woman. In no city of the country is this spirit of Independence-loving more strikingly emphasized than in Washington. In the government offices are many lovely, cul tured women, who have been wooed by the best men of the country, yet the life tf independence Is more fascinating than a handsome bank account with a mascu line lock and key attachment. The office hours are not trying, considered from a wage-earner's standpoint; the work is congenial, and above all the pay is good, with nQo fteas 46, delays in the settle ,ent; eonsequeltly the women grow Eray ,In the sevolee. Zy phllosophlse that "they kndl, what they have, bt4 do not know wlat_ tithy will be getting through & matolmonial venture." And .havlng t lcen the lessons to neart of the experient"d of many of their co-workers, of whom there are numerous potent ex@ amples where pretty girls left the osee for love and after having found mar riage a failure they have drifted back, no longer light-hearted girl, but women with other little lives to share the salary. The majority labor on and many of them die In harness. Club life even a greater bar to matril mony than biust"nea life for a woman. The spirit of indepedeace of thought and action it thd club woman, the lade pendence flnanolally of the business woman, all tend to antagohlse sentiment. Men will neverseek the professional club woman with th' intention of paying her the highest compliment that a man can pay a woman-the ofir o. his heart and name. And the woman who assumes club amliations after marriage, In pro portion as her interest In the one in creases will It diminish In the other. The two will not reconcile any more than a man can maintain two establishments on the Came footing. Wotmn'$ clubs have desolated many homes, and nq argument in their favor will ever redeem them In the eyes of right-minded men. The retired belles who find solace in the women's clubs are not likely to be an. noyed by persistent lovers. The married women who are wedded to club life are often devoutly thanked by their husbands, who thus find leisure to Indulge in more congenial companionship. And the widows who can give their less knowing sisters the value of experience must ad mit that their admirers no longer need Mr. Wellers' sagacious advice. A man may bravely face a gatling gun, an auto% mobile or a dentist's chair, but when It comes to facing the real strenuous club woman, his courage is palsied and he may be excused if his retreat is more pre cipitate than dignified. Vesonese Is particularly noted for his banqueting scenes. The most famous of these festal scenes being "The Marriage at Cana," the largest easel picture in the world, "The Feast in the House of Simon the Pharisee," "The Feast in the House ot Levi" and "Supper in the House of Simon the Leper." This paper was followed by a short dls cussiomi of his various pictures. Mrr. Buzzo gave the club a treat in a paper entitled "Verse Writers and Poets of Today." saying "It may be true that the twentieth century opens with no living giants among the vast multi tude of poets and those who strive to poetize; but today there are most cer tainly man verse-writers who approach very near to greatness in their work and mottve. "Popular education, along with ad vanced educaiton, has given opportunity to acquire. to assimilate and to value as never before. Not only has it helped to produce such quantity of verse, but It has served to elevate the tone-the qual ity of that verse. "I think it is not claiming too much to say that therefore we, have every reason to expect better writing as we have more of it. "For the motto that 'the public de mands the bebt and will have it,' Is fully recognized and lived up to by our Ameri can press, than whom there is none more advanced and progressive, none better than world around." Mrs. Iuzzo read selections from, or spoke of the work of almost all of the modern poets, speaking particularly of the "Child Verse" of Father TabL. and the poetic protest against war by Joaquin Miller and Rudyard Kipling. The West Side Shakespeare Club. Cold as It was Tuesday evening the members of the West Side Shakespeare club who ventured out were more than repaid, for a delightful evening was the result. The member to whom had been assigned the task of writing the paper for Mrs. Wm. White, who is in California., was not present and her paper, "Imogen" will be heard later. The club met with Miss Grossman. The usual business program occupied the first of the evening, with the roll call answered with quotations from the lesson to be read. It was voted to assess every substitute the usual yearly dues. There are several members ill or out of town anu they have sent substitutes to fill their places. It is considered no more than fair to have these substitutes pay the dues as they will have all the bene fits and pleasures the regular members have and doubtless, so valuable have they proved, will be elected regular mem bers the first vacancies occurring. .The lessqn Tuesday evening was Act III of "Cymbeline" and it proved inter esting reading. As " the character - of Imogen is revealed scene by scene, it proves more and more attractive. There was to have been a quotation contest, but owing to the small attendance, President Nuckolls postponed it. It will take place next Tuesday evening. In these contests every member will give every quotation she can think of from the plays read this year-"Mac beth," "Julius Ceasar," "Cymbeline," and each member will have to place the quo tation and give the name of the char acter who uttered it. The one guessing the greatest number correctly to be de clared at the head and winner of the con. test. The club will meet next Tuesday even ing With Mrs. C. N. Gosman at her home on South Excelsialor avenue. The club will read Act IV of "Cymbeline" and hear a paper by Mrs. P. Mullins on "Leonatus." The usual monthly discus sion of current topics will also be en joyed and every member will be expected to come prepared with at least one cur rent event. The questions for the next meeting were given out with the names of the members 'to whom they were assigned and are given below. The ones who were absent can cut this out to study: 1--Give your answer to the two com plaints made against Posthumous' char acter, his enterilg into the wager and encouraging the trial of his wife-Mrs. Lunstan and Miss Coffin. 2--Ills cruel scheme of revenge-Mrs. Woodhury and Miss Robinson. 3-What scenes in this .act form the sunshine of the play-Mrs. Dickson and Mrs. Cutting. 4-In what other play has Shakespeare given us this picture of mountain life-Mrs. Berry and Mrs. Whitcher. 5-What is the prevad ing quality in the disposition of the two princes-Mrs. Daum and Mrs. Lindsay. 6-Show how Shakespeare followed the old prejudice of instinct of birth to dis. tinguish the royal blood in the veins of the princes-31rs. Iteinhardt and Mrs. Campbell. 7-"To the east," give supers stitution of graves-Miss Fosselman and Mrs. Jackman. 8-Comment on the ex quisite taste and tenderness shown in the obsequles and ceremonies at the funeral of Imogen-Mrs. Stevens and Miss Teague. --Explain "my dager in my month" and "neat cookery-Mrs. She. by and Mrs. Ingle. 10-Explain "Ex orciser." "Sienna" and "Mercurlal"-Mrs. Gosman and Mrs. Mullins. 11-Explain "Jmpersenevant," "citiseh a wanton" and "Theoseter"-Mrs. Plummer and Miss Crossman. 12-In what way does "Cym bellne" surpass any of Shakespeare's' other plays-Mrs. Gilbert. Echoes From the Clubs. Owing to the graduating exercises of the High school the Art club did not meet this week. The executive board of the Woman's club will meet next Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 at Elk's hall. There was no meeting of the Litera ture department of the Woman's club this week. They will meet the 11th in Elks' hull. There will be a meeting of the Social and Domestic Science department of the Woman's club on Monday afternoon at Elks' hall. Tea will be served and mem bers are invited to bring their sewing. There was no meeting of the Saturday night club last week owing to the cold weather. The Ethical Culture club will enjoy their physical culture lecture next Tues day night. Their social-'session will be held the following week with Miss Esther Meiklejohn. Federation Meeting. The Butte City Federation of Women's clubs met with Vice President Mrs. A. H. Whitcher at the Lenox Tuesday after noon. President Mrs. T. W. Buzzo pre sildng. Although the thermometer was still below zero only one member was ab sent. The meeting was full of interest. Eevery member had something to report for the federation to take action on. In addition there was a number of resolu tions and recommendations from the various federated clubs of the city to act upon. These were discussed at length and the president appointed committees to take charge of the different subjects. Complaint has been made, indirectly, that perhaps the, federation was resting on the laurelseJaready won. Not a bit of it. Tlhy ar'e'worldng, but so quletly yet etfectively¥ that nothing will be made public uitil the thing is accomplished. The federation believes literally that you must "catch your hare." And that Is what they are doing. Committees are at work securing data, seeing people Inter ested and alive to the various abuses that the citizens of Butte would like to see righted. And in good time the fruit of all this toil will be made visible to the onlookers. The Monday Night Club. The Monday Night club tnet January 20, with the Misses Coffin and Farrel on West Broadway. The first paper of the evening, "Spain From 1800 to 1815," was read by Miss Coffin, and led to an ani mated disctussion by the club. Miss Ewing read an interesting paper on the Spanish literature of that period. After the routine work of the rlub was over Mrs. Whitcher, the guest of the club, read, by request, a delightful paper en titled "Woman's Spll.th, 'l Juill a Woman's Standpoint." After Mrs. Whitcher's paper the ment hers of tis' club gave her a vote of thanks for the pleasure she had given them. The club will meet in social Feeslon February 3 with Miss Marvin on Crystal street. The Boston Juvenile. (Judge,) "ioD you Ilk' your new ball, Waldo?" "Yes, 1 amtl pleased with its modeling, texture and resilllence."
