Break in Ranks of Unique Girls'
Club in Xerc-Haven.
jCew-Haven. Conn., Sept. IS <Bpeda£>.— One of the
most lEterestisg of the well nigh Innumerable social
org*r-iz*-t:or.3 to be found In Connecticut is the
Daisr Bachelor Maids' Club, of this city. The club
boasts of ar. existence ol two years, and of the
further dtotiactkn that of (be original eight mem
ber*, who with uplifted har.Js turned their backs
or. the bridal altar, only one has proved recreant to
her mr. In tact antD recently, the charter mem
bership remained Intact, and while this lone break
|B (ha rank* of organised splnsterhood Is deeply
deplored by the your.g women who have kept their
p'.e<i&es, the club challenges any bachelor's insti
tution in the country to produce as good a show
ing against Dan Cupid.
Nature lent a strong touch of romance to the be
g*.nr.'-!:g of tbe I'aisy Bachelor Maids" Club. One
moor.!!t right on the porch of a cottage by the
«a=ner sea < rht cf tho most prepossessing ym:n§;
wozr.er. of the City of Elms were gathered. They
■aapfmooaty resolved that when they had the will
tc register antl-nia.trimonial vows under th» sp«!i
cf Lona z-<2 the witchery of the wares there could
be r.o danger of swerving from their purpose, and
t w^. then ar.d there agreed to be the first, last
ar.d only merafcers cf an organization whose prl
raary object should be to halt the march of brides
to the altar.
Ar. antl-rnatrimonlal obßgatton was formulated.
and each girl a^samed It In turn with all the so
lerncitv and irr.press'.veness that 6he thought were
re-julre-i to attune the paJtitatlr.g heart strings of
tbe others to tbe proper key. as for herself, each
g!r! 4e«raed it ar. easy matter to forswear the af
fections of too attentive admirers and the satis
faction of breathing "yes" or th© embarrassment
of saj-ir.g 'T. 0." for it was decreed that no man.
old or y^ur.g. was to be conducted to th© proposing
stage. Each girl thought too much of the eeven
others, ehe- BoliloQulKsd. ever to permit any mere
man to divorce her from them. But to deter th»
others from forgettir.g their vows, each voted to
enact a bylaw providing that the girl who should
prove tmtrue to her obligation must pay a fine,
forfeit membership and fcre>ver afterward be ig
n<rr«J by her fellow-bachelor maids. Thus, even as
eh&keepears made h!s lovers swear constancy by
Plans, did the Daisy Bachelor MaJds make their
row and <xul cne another to witness tha silvery
radlacce cf the fair orb Bailing o'er them.
For nearly two years the. Daisy Bachelor Maids'
Club prrved itself Immune to the wiles of Cupid
and retained Its full Quota of members. But at
last the evil day came. One of th© inseparable
octet actually succumbed to the persuasive "Will
you take?" and lost her heart and her member

second anniversary. Arrangements fc r the cele

meeting was * n rrogre 83 to complete the last de
talla. when the blow fell, and the club staggered
under a chock th.it seriously threatened its dis
memberment. Without any previous warning. Miss
E. Qertrude Kennedy', one of the most ardent
de^pttea of maidenly bachdord and the club's
finFt president, amso to a question of personal

the club to be held up to ridieui©. It was m\\

For a . -.r, painful minute no one spoke. Then

triumphed quickly over feminine resentment, for
malities were brushed aside and the unwon bach

friends and acquaintances, and suggested punish

Although the repudiation by Miss Kennedy of
her anti-nuptial pledge did not disrupt the Daisy
Bachelor Maids, the club has not fully recovered
from the demoralizing effect of a member sur
rendering to the en«»my. The members realize that
the betrothal of Miss Kennedy haa established a
precedent, and they eye one another with, sus
picion when they stop to consider who will be the
next to vote herpelf away. One member ir. partic

not deny that she is engaged, nor will she affirm it.
With bated breath the other members await the
announcement, with gloomy misgivings as to its
effect, that ehe has given a ruthless Invader the

tion of Hymen. It is feared that one or two more
b-eaks would mean the practical dissolution of the
club unless the places of the deserters were filled

Woman's alleged lncompetency as a sex was
once more demonstrated yesterday in the meet-
Ing of the Hampden District Sunday School As
sociation, at Springfield. Mass. It was declared
that the average Sunday school teacher was Ig
norant both of the Bible and of proper methods
of instructing children. It was therefore voted
to appoint a trainer to Instruct the Sunday school
teachers of the district in normal methods. A lay
member nominated Miss Ada Kinsman, former
State superintendent of normal school work, for
the position. The clergy voted against her In a
body but announced that their action was not
against Miss Kinsman as an individual, but
against the Bex in general, as no woman had the
capacity to inspire confidence In such a position.
A committee was therefore appointed to select a
man for the place.

Mrs. Eustis Disagrees With Mrs. Parsons
About Idk Rich.
A plan for the employment of the girl with noth
ing to do which was presented a few months
ago In "Charities" by Mrs. Herbert Parsons has
stirred up a most unexpected amount of strife and
has Just elicited another protest from Mrs. William
Corcoran Eustis, formerly Miss Edith Morton,
daughter of Levl P. Morton.
Mrs. Parsons was 30 rash as to assert that the
young woman who doesn't have to support her
self and who does nnt marry shortly after leaving
school Is apt to find herself in a certain sense
superfluous. She has nothing to do, and suffers
acutely in consequence of that circumstance. Mrs.
Parsons suggested .hat rich women should employ
themselves in systematic volunteer charitable work,
for which they should be properly trained. Such
work and training' need not, she said, occupy more
than a few hours a day, and she felt sure that no
fairly open minded parent would object to It.
Many parents and other people did object, how
ever, and Mrs. Eustis in the current number of
"Charities" objects decidedly. She cannot see in
the first place why girls ever should have nothing
to do, and in the next she condsiders that phi
lanthropy undertaken merely to pass the time Is
not the proper way to give them employment.
"Settlement wr>rk. committee work, kindergarten
teaching, etc.. are all good in their way. conferring
benefits and teaching altruism, but, on the other
hand, very often fortering selfishness in the worker
and promoter," says Mrs. Eustis.
"If they are not undertaken in the right spirit
they defeat their own ends, and the results, if
deeply probed for, are not what they should be.
Taken as a means of occupation, I doubt that they
are as good as many others, but the motive
actuating such workers Is not a high one. It la
only when philanthropy is indulged In because of
real sympathy for those who toil and Buffer with
out much compensation, and from an honest desire
to Bhare our much with their little, that It prom
ises any substantial hope for the future or any
possibility of permanent good. Then the "worker"
will be gaining as much aa she confers, and giver
and receiver will meet on equal ground."
That there is a time when the life of the non
self-supporting young woman begins to pall. Mrs.
Eusiis admits. If she ;s a social success. If she is
danced with, admired, made love to sufficiently, no
body need worry about her having nothing to do
for a few years. But after that, if she be still un
married. If having arrived Rt an age when the Joys
of married life — Independence, a home of her own.
children, the devotion and care of her husband
are genuinely craved for, she cannnt yet find the
man of her choice, or resign herself to accept those
benefits at the hands of on» whom she does not
love as she pictures loving, she Is apt to become
discontented. Her» is where systematic philan
thropy is the "balm of Gilead" to many lives.
Everything else has become a bore, calls, parties,
life itself and social Joys and flirtations prove only
a snare and a delusion.
If this philanthropy is undertaken In the proper
spirit, Mrs. Eustis has no fault to find, but even
then, she pays, home missions should come before
foreign. The mother should not be allowed to Ko
' c On ps, while the daughter Is occupied with
■ • - ■ • ■ ments.
But there - - ir^ other ways of findir;? something to
do. Mrs. Eustis declares, and if the girl has been
properly educated pli« will have no difficulty in flnd

will at times make her Independent of other people,

Money Needed to Carry on Work of
Art Committee.
An lnterestinir work Is that of the art com
mittee of the Public Education Association in
decorating the public schools of this city with
pictures which will interest the pupils and help
to develop their love of the beautiful. Several
thousand dollars have already been spent by
the friends of the association in placing pictures
and casts upon the walls of the classrooms of
more than a dozen public schools. To carry out
the plans of the art committee this autumn and
winter In decorating the schoolrooms will re
quire an expenditure of about $5,000.
For the primary grades in the public schools
the pictures usually selected are of simple sub
jects, such as animals, birds, flowers and little
children. For this purpose colored pictures are
The pictures in the grammar grades are
usually of fine scenery, portraits of famous men
or photographs of paintings which are good
artistically and tell an Interesting story as well.
The pictures and decorations in the high
schools are chosen almost wholly for their
artistic value — for example, photographs of the
best paintings and buildings, plaster casts of
famous statues and reproductions of drawings
of the masters.
A picture circulating sub-committee proposes
to establish in each school a large collection of
pictures, which can be circulated as books are
now, and which can be enjoyed by the children
at their leisure in their homes. In Manchester,
England, and in several New-York settlements
this plan has worked successfully.
Money is needed by the association to continue
Its work of placing pictures whore every child
may see and use them. The office of the Public

A fish chowder prepared either from fresh had
dock or from codtish and made according to the fol
lowing rule is a-- nulne old New-England dish and is
most appetizing: Have on hand two pounds either
of fresh cod or fresh haddock, and cut it up into
square pieces. As the bones help to flavor they
should not be taken out. Flace three slices of pork
in a deep kettle and when they are "tried out"
remove them, and into the melted fat put a layer of
fish. Then cover it with a layer of cooked potatoes
taken from a bowl into which five medium sized
cooked potatoes and one tjO'.id sized onion have
been sliced in v.-rv thin slices. Then place over
the layer of potato, another layer of fish, and so
on until all the potato ar.d rish are used. As
euoh layer is ad«ied rinkle with pepper and salt.
Pour enough water over the mixture to prevent
the fish from burning. When this has entirely
boiled away add a quart of milk and bring it to the
boiling point Do not let it boil more than a min
ute. Put into the soup tun a piece of butter
almost the sir:- of an epg, and about six lightly
moistened crackers. Then pour the fish chowder
into the tureen and serve immediately.

$600 — so we made a price that makes competition impossible; and at the MB*
time puts it within roach of hundreds of hemes that would not like to ammam
the payment of six hundred dollars.
Do you realize what a wonderful difference it will make in the enjoyment yocr
family will have this Winter, if you buy an Autopiano?
Do you know what a small amount of cash it takes to put an AutopiaiHV ift
your home, and how little the monthly payments need be? You'll probably hm
surprised to learn — and you'll admit that ycu would be foolish to do without it
COME TODAY and hear the Autopiano — and learn how easy it is to bnyrit
