WEDNESDAY EVENING, FEBKUARY 20, 1901.
BETTER THAN YEARS OE DOCTORING. ONLY PAINE'S CELERY COMPOUND DID HER ANY LASTING GOOD, jnH^^M^^i^*" '.'V'Xv.'^Y'-'--'■',""■'' '• ■"' *'-''^'^^l^^^fl^^vSflßC^fl&mL^^Bfii It tau he truthfully said uf no other remedy in the world what is so often said of Paine's celery compound, that in no single instance has it failed to benefit, and benefit permanently—and there's the point that no sufferer should lose Eight of. The whole stock-in-trade of the ordi nary, plausible-sounding, but wholly ir responsible remedies is to bring about ihe appearance of health, to cover up symptoms and to stave off break-downs, making the permanent cure all the more difficult. Other remedies, because they can ef fect no lasting cure, do harm. The same words that fairly and ac curately describe I'aine's celery com pound, a remedy that every day proves its worth, are boldly used to exploit con coctiohs that can by no possibility do anything but harm. More brains and in genuity is expended on the label and wrapper than on what is put into the bottles. Persons who try this remedy and that, ia the foolish hope that they may hit on the right one by chance, and at any rate it can do them no harm, should know that they are doing their system incalculable mischief and putting oft' the day of complete recovery by such experimenting. Paine's celery compound must not be judged by the standard of any of these superficial medicines. It is a great, re sponsible, scientific discovery, singularly unlike any remedial agent that ever aimed to effect a similar purpose—to make people well. It is not an ordinary remedy. The results from its use have been so extraordinary and so gratify ing that busy men and women have gone out of their way to send letters of ibanks and to allow their names to vouch READY FOR THE ELECTION n. A. R. LISTENS TO REPORTS Mr*. Xcsliclli Resents Attack on . • Board "of ' Officers—Mrs. Man ! ning on Continental Hall. Washington, Feb. 20.—The national society of the Daughters of the American Revolution tv-day coaxenfid with the-intention of com pleting the reading of all reports to clear the way for the event of the congress, the elec tion of officers to-morrow. After the prelimi nary opening exercises a stir was created when .Mrs. Xesbeth of Massachusetts pre sumed a resolution to the effect that the statements recently circulated attacking the board of officers of the 1). A. R. being un tiue. libelous and reflecting upon the honor of the organization, they shouid receive the disapproval of the society. A member re quested that the press be restrained from mentioning the resolution in the proceedings, Of the congress, but this amendment was not yut before the house. The resolution was laid upon the table. .Mrs. Daniel Manning presented her report as chairman of the committee on the conti nental hall. The report showed that, from Feb. IC. 1900, to Feb. 10, 1901, there has been received toward the fund $10,790. The fund now amounts to $62,823. Continuing, the re port says: "Again and for the last time, I urge you to do your part toward this memo rial of the men who counted no sacrifice too great for accomplishing- our independence. Let us put up a building to which all people can point with pride. It should be one of the finest halls in.the country; for it will rep it-sent 35,000 of the" best women in America." Mrs, Maiming appealed, to the: members of The Plymouth Clothing House. * Kiiox IB m |h| W^ j^ J*fA\l■ ll 9i 5 Hanan Hats- I ll i -*."

The following acknowledgment from Mrs. Geo. F. Rouse of Green Bay, "Wis., of the surprising benefit she has re ceived from the use of Paine's celery com pond is too valuable to be withheld from the public. Mrs. Rouse's honest opinion of this great remedy cannot be mistaken by any one who reads her letter: Green Bay, Wis., March 3, 1&00. Wells, Richardson & Co., Gentlemen: — For the past ten year? I have been troubled with neuralgia of the stomach and dizziness in the head. I have doctored with many doctors, but found no relief until a friend of mine recommended to me your Paine's celery compound, and I found it a great cure for my sickness. Yours very truly, Mrs. Geo. E. Rouse. Public opinion in the large cities throughout the country shows the reli ance that hard-worked, often over worked, men and women have come to place upon Paine's celery compound. Nothing demoralizes the health sooner or more completely than even the occa sional loss of sleep. Paine's celery com pound gets th? brain out of this danger ous habit of sleeplessness. It feeds the nervous tissues all over the body, and does not let the nutrition of these deli cate parts get low enough to permit of insomnia. One of the earliest evidences of the final success of this great nerve and brain invigorator in curing neuralgia, debility, rheumatism, headaches and in digestion due to insufficient nerve force, is the joyous feeling of returning strength of mind and body, cheerfulness and "well being" that takes the place of the old, tired, languid, morbid, melancholy condi tion. If you are "played out," to use a for cible street phrase, can't digest, can't ' sleep, can't work, and have lost courage, it is your nervous system that is "played out." Try Paine's celery compound and see how soon you give up brooding over your health and ■ how soon you forget you ever had nerves that could possibly ache. The dismal failures of other reme dies must not prevent one from taking the remedy that is always successful. Paine's celery compound has driven sick ness from thousands of homes. the congress to contribute $2 each. If this is done, she said, $70,000 will be raised. Yesterday was occupied chiefly with the rending of reports. The report of. the vice president general in charge of organization of chapters stated that there are now 567 organized chapters and 77 unorganized chapters, a total increase of 55. The corresponding secretary reported that during the past year 23,204 application blanks and 2,704 membership circulars have been issued. The secretary recommended that the chapters take care of the "real daughters," of whom there are 500, and assist in their support. The registrar general, in her report, stated that during the past year 3,873 members had been admitted and that during the last three years 12,759 women had become daughters. The report of the treasurer general showed that during 1900 the net receipts of the cur rent fund were $50,161 and expenditures $34, --36 L The "continental hall fund" was repre sented to be $65,828. The reports showed New York state to have the largest membership, there being forty-four chapters with 3,520 members. The most rapid growth was shown in some of the western states. At the close of the afternoon reception the member* attended a reception given by Mrs. 11. F. Blount in Georgetown. Other recep tions were also given, including one by Mrs. John A. Logan. The evening session of the society was de voted entirely to reading of reports pertain ing to the American monthly magazine, the official organ of the Daughters. AN ENTHUSIASTIC AUDIENCE. Puck. "Was the author of the play hissed?" "Not much! When he came before the curtain he brought the pugilist with him who played the leading role." THE MINNEAPOLIS JODENAI-." Woman's World STUDy THE DRAIA Drummond Hall Girls Literary Club's Work. GOOD PRODUCTION OF MACBETH The \oimu Women Have Steadily Improved in Dramatic* Abil ity—Urnmnioad Hall. The announcement of a dramatic enter tainment by members of the Twentieth Century club served to fill nearly every seat hi Drumniond hall recently. But to those who are unacquainted with Prmnmond hall and its work, the an nouncement would have little significance, and an explanation of the character of the Institution and of the doings of the little club is es&entiul to an understanding of the cordial euthusiasm of the audience. Some years ago a mission was started on Second street, in Northeast Minneap olis, by members of Plymouth Congrega tional church. By degrees it developed into an "institutional" work, and two or three years ago a new building was erect ed especially for the purpose and named •Drummond Hall." Iv this building the people of the vicinity find a center for various social affairs. In addition to the Sunday services directly connected with the mission work proper, there are edu cational and study classes, some gymna sium work for boys, a branch of the pub lic library—soon to be opened each even ing in the week —and other lines of activ ity incident to an institutional center of this kind. For some years a large share of the responsibility of the work at Drum mond hall has fallen to Edward F. Waite, who was largely instrumental in the suc cess of the building movement. , The (ail's Club. About three years ago a club of girls was established under the leadership of Mrs. V. W. Lothrop, for the purpose of studying good literature and current events. Upon Mrs. Lothrop's departure from the city, about a year ajid a half ago, the leadership was assumed by Mr. and Mrs. \V. C. fodder, and it was under their immediate supervision that Tuesday night's entertainment was given. The club has met weekly and has studied a number of standard authors, including Lowell, Ten nyson and Shakspere, and once each year has given a simple dramatic entertain ment. The first of these was scenes from "Romeo and Juliet," tMe* second similar excerpts from "The Merchant of Venice," and Tuesday night they essayed almost an entire act from "Maebeth." To fully understand what this means, it must be said, and without any disparage ment to the young women, that when they began their club work, most of them had the most limited advantages. They were, perhaps, an average group of'girls, such as might be found in any mission about the city. Only one had had schooling fur ther than the lower grades: all of them work for their living—some in stores oth ers in factories. To some of them Shak spere"s phraseology was almost an un known tongue. And it has been a source of great pleasure to their friends at Drummond to observe their development under the course of reading which they have pursued. A Striking- Contrast. Their first dramatic production was, of course, decidedly crude; Tuesday night showed a striking contrast. While without any elocutionary training, of course, except what they had received in their club work, the girls showed a sympathetic appreciation of most of the dramatic lines of the scenes which they produced. These were the scenes just be fore, and at the time of, the murder of the king, the witches' cave and the sleep walking scene: and their selection natur ally gave peculiar prominence to the part of Lady Macbeth, which was taken by Emily Svendsen. And that it was exceed ingly well taken was conceded by some rather severe critics present, while the audience expressed its approval by recall ing Miss Svendsen at the close of the per formance. The difficult role of assuming the airs of the Scottish lord, Macbeth, fell to Lilly D Hebert. who managed the part with credit, as did the less conspicuous actors, Hilda Heglln, Theresa Anderson, Fanny Svendsen and Turina Fieldby, who had respectively the parts of the three witches and the physician. Hilda Haglin also acted as messenger and as the gen tlewoman of the last scene. Their cos tuming was simple but appropriate, and was largely devised and prepared by the girls themselves, with the assistance of Mrs. Hodder. Preceding the performance, Fred \V. Reed gave a brief outline of the play of "Macbeth," and explained the work of the club. JQtter the Macbeth scenes the same cast, with the addition of Hilda Olsen, another member of the club, gave the farce, "No Cure, No Pay," which proved very amus ing and showed that the young actors had considerable versatility. AN ENGLISH GIRL'S EDUCATION TION. "Foreign travel plays a large part in the education of an English girl in almost every class save the humblest," writes Mrs. Alex ander in the February Ladies' Home Journal. "Dressmakers and milliners go abroad to learn, if possible, the iexterous touch, the skilful cut of the Parisian. The artist,and the musician find It essential to visit the schools of Germany and France. The teacher must acquire the languages of these countries with a correct accent, and the daughters of | professional men, country gentlemen, men of business, whether they are rich or struggling, all manage to take or send their girls abroad for holiday trips."

THE APOLLO CLUB CONCERT The Apollo Club concert at the Lyceum theater last night -was of a gratifydngly artis tic quality both in respect to club work and to the solos of Miss Clara Williams, soprano, and Lewi9 Shawe, barytone. It was especial ly interesting that the assistance in such a delightful and finished program should have been given by home musicians. The concert reflected much credit upon all concerned, Claude Madden, director of the chorus, the chorus itself, which was heard at its best, the soloists, and H. S. Woodruff, the accom plished accompanist. The chief criticism to be ,made on the program was its length, which hardly permitted justice being done to the latter part, as the audience was already surfeited. Of the chorus numbers, Bullard's '.'Winter Song," -with Its captivating movement and spirit, was easily the favorite. It was sung with an abandon and zest that were delight ful. Dregert's "Serenade" and two "Robin Hood" selections were well sung and much appreciated. A spirited composition by Mr. ' Madden, "Outward Bound," was also sung. The most serious and best chorus work of the evening waa in Mohr's "To the Genius of Music," which was sung with fine effect, the shading being especially good. Miss Williams sang this with the club, the solo portions be ing excellent, but her voice was lost at times in the volume of the chorus in the ensembles. Misa Williams made her first public ap pearance since her return from London, where she has spent years in study. She gives avidence of good training and good taste in her selection of music suited to her voice, <hich is a light, pure soprano of rane sweet ness and richness, but of limited volume. She sings with perfect ease and naturalness, which make one forget that there is such a thing as methods of vocalization or that sing ing is ever anything but spontaneous, rip pling music. Her tones are pure and true and her enunciation is faultless. Her num bers were Dellbes' "Lakme"; "Viilanelle," Dell' Aqua; "Tltania's Cradle," Liza Leh mann;and her most enjoyable number, "My Mother Bids Me Bind My Hair." Mr. Shawfe interpreted his songs artistically and with fine feeling. His best number was Schubert's "Dv Bist Die Huh." THE CARE OF THE NAILS The finger nail as it should be is about one and a half times aa long as it is broad, and always shows a crescent at the base. High ly polished or painted nails are not indicative of good taste. They should have a natural gloss and be neatly rounded at the top. ' If the nails are rounded o£f with the file every day, they -will not need to be cut with the scissors, which is injurious. In order to keep the crescent at the base well formed the skin should be pushed back from the nail ■with, the towel, or, if necessary, with a blunt orange stick, every time the hands are washed. Ths orange stick is excellent also for cleaning the finger nails after they have been, soaked a few minutes in warm water containing a little lemon juice. If the nails show a tendency to brittieness a little soaking in warm olive oil after re moving them from the lemon water and an application of cold cream at night will prove beneficial. In polishing the nails with the chamois pol isher neither paste nor powder should be used. Powder makes the nails brittle and paste gives an undesirable high color. After using the file to round the finger nails in shape, it is well to use an emery strip to remove any roughness that remains. Persons upon whom nature has not be stowed taper shaped fingers sometimes try to attain them by the use of various devices. Metal cones reaching to the second point, to be worn at night, are supposed to secure this result, but unless one begins at an early age, when the fingers are soft and amenable to external appliances, it is doubtful if they would produce the desired effect. TOMMY'S VIEW. Life. Mr. Self made — Remember, children, when I was a boy I often went to bed hungry, and seldom bad a square meal. Little Tommy (who is tired of hearing about it) —Well, that just shows how much better off you are since you've known us. A FAMOUS CLUB Chicago "Woman's Club Celebrates Twenty-fifth Auivertary. The Chicago Woman's Club celebrated its twenty-fifth aniversary Saturday and of the gathering of 450 women all were club mem bers. A luncheon was served, followed by a program of toasts jpresided over by Mrs. Ar thur Edwards, president of the club. Of the original twenty-one members the following fifteen were present: Emma S. Adams, Caro line M. Blackman, Emma B. Corneau, Ma rietta A. Dow, Clara M. Fry, Lucy F. Fur ness, Louisa M. Greenlee, Lucretia Heywood, Sarah Heywood, Fanny J. Howe, Helen C. Peirce, Lucretia J. Tilton, Katherlne K. Tu ley, Laura S. Wilkinson, Jennie G. With row. A magnificent painting, "Morning in the High Sierras." by William Keith, was pre sented to the club by Mrs. F. G. Logan in honor of the day. The record of this powerful club is an in teresting and important one. From the be ginning the club members were determined that their work should count. The intention has been well carried out. Indeed, so ad mirably and thoroughly has the club grasped every scheme it has undertaken to work out that success has attended its every move ment. The men of Chicago have long since learned to capitulate when they discover the powerful Woman's Club behind any advo cacy of a reform. Against the great moral force represented in the union of nearly 1,000 women which the club roster shows to-day, opposition would be useless. It was the Woman's Club which put woman physicians into the Kankakee and cook county insane asylums. The club, with the co-operation of the Women's Christian Tem perance Union, succeeded in placing matrons In police stations and the county Jail. Be fore these women exercised their influence in this direction women arrested upon any charge whatever were entirely under the I " "SPECIAL DRY."

It established the first kindergarten for poor children in the public school. Through its ef forts and influence women have been ap pointed on the school board, and women have been placed as trustees of the state uni versity at Champaign. Through these trus tees work is regularly being done to promote both better home lives and higher education' of the women students at the university. Some legislative affairs in which the club. has interested Itself are the laws govern ing truant schools, parental schools, juven ile court and compulsory education. The boys' industrial school at Glenwood owei' its establishment to the club, which raised $40,000 for the purpose. Through its efforts also $200,000 was raised to build four dormi tories for woman at the University at Chi cago. An endowment fund of $1,500 for the Art Institute, benefiting girl graduates from* the high school, is another achievement for which the organization may take credit.
