Exhibit of Dances and Games at No.
188 by Public School League.
In the presence of the president of the Board
of Education. Egerton L. Winthrop, with Mrs.
Wlnthrop and her aister. Mrs. George B. Mc-
Olellan. the Girls' Branch of the Public Schools
Athletic Lrcague save its first public demonstra
tion of athletics and dancing yesterday after
noon in Public School 1«S, East Houston and
Lewis streets. The examination consisted of
dances, races and games, all carefully selected or
modified to meet the needs of girls and give
them as much exercise in as little time as pog
elble and In the most pleasing way. and no one
was permitted to take part In the affair who
didn't stand A ICo. 1 in everything from schol
arship to deportment.
The first number was a Swedish weaving
dance, reproducing the movements of weaving.
This was executed by a class from the Girls*
Technical High School !n costumes which they
made themselves, and it made such a hit that
it was repeated at the close of the programme.
The Girls' Technical pupils also did an Irish reel,
a Highland fling and a sailor's hornpipe, all in
appropriate costumes of their own making.
Then there were an abbreviated game of basket
ball, a game of hockey and a game of baseball by
the Wadleigh High School, all in feminine varia
tions. In the baseball game the catcher wore a
vicious looking mask and padded gloves, but the
president of the girls* branch. Miss Catherine
l>everich, assured the nervous spectators, as
they moved their chairs back to get out of range
of the ball, that it was so soft it could not pos
sibly hurt any one. Nevertheless, the game
■was not at all ladylike. There was a great rain
of sidecomhs during- Its progress, and one of the
girls became co excited as she sent the ball fly
ing and made a dash for first base that she
flung her bat at the reporters.
The ball players wore very becoming costumes
of red and white bloomers, white waists,
with red ties and hair ribbons — when they
got through they gave a rousing yell in an un
known tongue. It sounded something like
"Kick-e-ty-brax. ki yi. ki yl; klck-e-ty-brax, ki
yi. ki yi! HuUa- halloo, hulla-ballah! Wadleigh
High School! Rah. rah. rah!"
EXCITING RELAY RACES.
The relay races proved extremely exciting,
both to the spectators and the players. In one
of these, performed by the athletic club of Pub
lic School 62. the players had to take a run to
the other side of the room and there move four
Indian clubs from one circle to another, stand-
Ing them carefully on end. The audience found
this quite a strain to Its nerves, and it required
great control of nerve and muscle on the part of
the players. The race, was designed, naturally,
for this very purpose, and at a previous ex
hibition, given about a month ago to physical
culture experts, it was greatly admired by Dr.
Sargent, of Harvard, and Dr. Arnold, of Yale
The smaller children of No. 188 gave some
charming little dances under the direction of
Miss Elizabeth Burchenal, physical director of
the girls' branch. One of the dances was Swed
ish, another Russian, and In the latter the
Cancers gave a little warwhoop at intervals.
which seemed to please them Immensely. Their
costumes ranged all the way from regular gym
nasium suits to Sunday frocks, and one little
Jewess had a most remarkable outfit, consisting
of a checked blouse with sleeves pushed up to
the elbow, bine "knickers" strapped with red a
pompadour cash and a pink hair ribbon.
During the closing numbers the cooking

A SUFFRAGE SURPRISE
Woman Question Excites Conven
tion of New Jersey Federation.
A bold attempt to stampede the New Jersey
State Federation in favor of woman suffrage
was the chief event of the annual spring meet
ing held in Metuchen yesterday. Before one in
ten of the five hundred women present realized
what was up a recommendation from the in
dustrial committee of the General Federation.
Miss Jane Addams, of Hull House, Chicago, chair
man, had been sprung, indorsing the principle of
equal suffrage and such agitation as would se
cure th« ballot to working women, and urging
the federation to instruct its delegates to the
St. Paul convention of the General Federation
to vote for the same.
A feeble round of applause from the suffragists
had been followed by a motion from an especially
acute anti-suffragist to refer the resolution to a
committee before most of the "antis" woke up.
Then Mrs. James M. Trimble, of Montclalr.
jumped to her feet.
"This is no time or place to discuss suffrage,"
she said decisively.
The "antis" applauded vigorously. A dozen
women were on their feet in a second. clamor-
Ing to be heard, and in the face of what prom
ised to be a big: storm the resolution was re
ferred to the legislative committee, the commit
tee to report at the afternoon session.
But, like Banquo's ghost, it refused to down,
but kept bobbing up all through the afternoon.
Mrs. Stewart Hartshorn, of Short Hills, who
made a plea for working: girls, wound up by
urging the women to "get the ballot."
"You don't know what it means to have a
vote in your vest pocket." reasoned Mrs. Harts
home. "I found out last winter we had a fine
woman running: for postmistress in our town.
A stick of a man got it, because he had a vote."
' Th^re are only a few women who know how
to vote," objected Mrs. Trimble. "I am an in
telligent woman, but if I could vote I should
have to ask my husband which way to vote."
That brought Mrs. Florence Howe Hall to her
feet. "When any one says women are too igno
rant to vote," she said, "I feel I must say some
thing: It Is high time we did know enough. If
we're, too ignorant to vote I'm afraid our
vaunted club movement hasn't done as much
for us as we thought."
When the legislative committee reported it was
to recommend that eA?h club consider Miss Ad
dams's resolution, and report on it at next year's
spring meeting of the federation. The. "antis"
heaved a sigh of relief.
•If this issue had been pushed through it
would have disrupted the federation," said one
Others pooh-poohed the idea of disruption.
"Nothing could disrupt the Jersey 'fed,' " they
declared stout iy. "We aren't like the New York
clubwomen— always fighting and manoeuvring
Mrs. Maud Balllngton Booth and the Rev.
Antoinette Brown Blackwell were the leading:
speakers of the day. New York was represented
by Mrs. Beile de Rivera and Mrs. Lillle Devereux
Blake. Although this was not. an election meet
ing, considerable electioneering went on quietly,
the Southern Jersey women hustling for Mrs.
Mary B. Kinsley, of Hoboken. for president, and
the Newark women for Mrs. Henry P. Bailey, of
East Orange, who is said to be in the lead.
They must have some very delightful little
girls in England, to judge by the anecdotes
about them that « reep into the press from time
to time. Here is one of a six-year-old which
'The Gentlewoman" recounts with enjoyment:
"She was riding with her aunt outside one of
the Hastings electric trams. As it was proceed
ing at a rather good pace down a steep declivity
the aunt was obviously a little nervous. The
child, observing this, looked up sweetly into her
aunt's face and said: 'Are you frightened,
auntie? Because you can take hold of my hand
if you are!' "
On another occasion this little girl's grand
mother had the misfortune to have the leg of
the sofa on which she was reclining give way,
and although it was repaired it gave away a
second time. Thereupon a chair sufficiently
firm to support the aged and rather infirm
woman was bought, a fact which her grand
child remembered in her prayers that evening
as follows: "I thank Thee, good Lord, for hav
ing at last found a chair that my dear grannie
can sit down upon."

is an advertisement that, appearing only re

anions a large circle of unfortunates. When

A Notable Exhibition
Of CERAMIC ART
The Finest Array of Wedding Gifts
To Be hound in New York City ::
Ever since the new Wanamaker Building
has been open, people have been voicing their
enthusiastic admiration of the Third floor. It
presents a marvelous exhibition. The new
Art Wares Salon is without a rival in spacious
and artistic appointments. There are two or
three other notable collections of ceramic
wares, bronzes and marbles in New York City;
but none, that approaches this in size, can be
compared in newness or in reasonableness of
We do not possess a thousand dollars' worth
of Art Wares that have not been purchased
within the last twelve months. When you re
alize this fact in connection with the. thousands
of beautiful pieces now shown* you will realize
the infinite superiority of this stock, in this re
spect, over any collection to be found elsewhere
Those who are selecting gifts will also appre
ciate the freedom of selection, which is a feature
of Wanamaker storekeeping. You may spend hours comparing the differ
ent varieties, if you so desire ; but the moment you wish to be served, a com
petent sales-person will be on hand to wait on you.
The arrangement in alcoves enables the lover of art to study the
products of different potteries in most satisfying manner. Each has its
distinct features of individuality. There are six of these alcoves, and
twenty-six display cases running around the main salon. As you step
off the Broadway elevator, just to the left you will see the alcove of
Marbles— busts, figures and groups in CastiJena and Carrara marbles.
The Wanamaker Stores are the largest importers, either wholes-ale or
retail, of marble statuary in America. This not only accounts for the
superb variety presented but also for the low prices at which these
pieces are sold, ranging from marble figures at $7.50 up to an exquisite
Romeo and Juliet group at $850.
The alcove adjoining presents a wonderful collection of Rorstrand Pot
ten-. This is the only collection of this ware to be found in America, with
the exception of that in our Philadelphia Store. This pottery in Stockholm,
Sweden, is probably the oldest in the werld. The only one of the famous
wares in which the painting is under the glaze; it is unique in its shapes
and the character of its decorations. Every piece is hand formed, and no
two pieces are ever alike. Prices range from little vases at $2.40, to mag
nificent pieces at $200.
Another alcove contains a fine showing of Royal Vienna pieces — vases,
cups and saucers, plates and plaques — ranging in price from $6 to $450.
There is an alcove of French Bronzes, another with a fine collection of
Russian Brass, in jardinieres, ferneries, vases and plaques. Another pre
senting a fine collection of English China, in plates and cups and saucers.
In the cases arranged running around the main salon, are the following
French Mounted Pteees. at 9&60 t* $120.
Royal Bonn Pisces, at «6 to $86.
Vienna Bronzes, at $3.50 ta $325.
Amphora Pottery, at $1.50 to $18.
Hand-painted China, at $1.50 to $27.50.
Sutherland Art Pisces, at $1.85 and $1.79.
Plaques and Frame* at $11 to $M£o.
Italian Plaques, at 75c to $12.
Tables, throughout the floor, contain fine collections of ivories, ivory
miniatures. Limoges enamel miniatures, Dresden vases and figures, and nu
merous wares which we have not space to individusliie.
Students of art, loveTs of beauty, seekew of choice wedding gift 3, and
all housekeepers are invited to visit the new Art Wares Salon while this mag
nificent collection is at its best. In a week ©r two thousands of these beau
tiful pieces will be distributed among June brides of this year, and those of
other years whose anniversaries are being celebrated.

LITTLETON FOR LOOP.
Sure "L" Plan for Connecting East
River Bridges Is Best.
Advocates of the "loop plan*" for connecting th*
three bridges over the East River have the assur

before, Is still actively Interested In Its success.
Under Mr. Littleton was organized the committee
of twenty-flve which worked for this object.
There Is nothing in the conditions of rapid trait*

extent as to modify Mr. Littleton's opinion or tho

This Remarkable Collection
Of Women's TAILORED SUITS
Two reasons exist for the constant attractiveness of these stocks of Women's
Suits. Foremost is the daily arrival of new styles of more Summery materials.
Supplementing this is the fact that various lines are constantly being reduced in
price as they become broken in sizes, as manufacturers are not able to duplicate
the materials. These reductions are made without any special announcement, and
the good fortune is secured just as women happen to see the trader-price suits.
All the various styles in jackets are prettily represented, and there is unlimited
assortment as to materials and colorings. Many of the dresses are copies of our
imported models, or attractive adaptations from than. The price range is so
broad that it meets every desire.
Eton Suits of homespuns In mixtures and checks, trimmed with braid, lac*, taffeta
silk or strappings of material, at $12 to $29.
Suits of worsteds in checks, plaids, stripes and mixtures, at $15 to $49.
