Nonanipit and imiefals,
Last year was one of activity In add
Ing to the monuments and memorials to
distinguished- men. On February 12 the
Grant membrial' commission, constituted
by act of Congress, announced that models
for the design for a statue to Gen. U. S.
Grant would be rebelved. About thirty of
the beat-known artists, sculptors and archi
tects entered the competition, and their de
signs were placed on public exhibition in
the basement of the Corcoran Art Gallery
on April 1. These models attracted a great
deal of attention. Among those who view
ed them was the late Mrs. Grant, who was
accompanied by her daughter. Mrs. Sar
torts, and daughter-in-law, Mrs. Fred. D.
Grant. On April 14 the committee appoint
ed by the commission recommended the
chosing of the design submitted by Shrady
of New York. The general design was
highly approved by the committee, but the
equestrian statue was not believed to be
up to the standard of that submitted by
Niehaus of New York. In consequence it
was recommended that both artists be
asked to srbmit each another design for
the statue. These were placed on exhibi
tion October 1. The final award s in
abeyance. On February 13 artists were In
vited to compete for a design for a statue
to Gen. George B. McClellan. A number of
artists responded and tae designs were ex
hibited in the basement of the Corcoran
Art Gallery, beginning April 30.
Memorial services for the late Presi
dent William McKinley were held in the
House of Representatives February 12. The
oration was delivered by Mr. John Hay,
Secretary of State.
On May 21 the memorial to the Spanish
American war veterans of Washington was
dedicated with patriotic ceremonies.
The same month the statue of Rocham
beau, In Lafayette Square, was unveiled.
The Ordway memorial, at Arlington., was
umreiled June 25.
On June S0"a memorial tablet to Presi
dent McKinley. presented by Justice An
derson, wag unveiled in Metropolitan M. E.
ndications are that the long-delayed
monument to Gen. William T. Sherman will
be completed la April.
As usual, the past year was a busy one
with the charities. The conditions of the
poor are ever needful of attention, and to
those who aim to relieve the suffering there
is no such thing as inactivity. The princi
pal charity work of the District is in
trusted to the Associated Charities, which
co-operates with the Citizens' Relief Asso
ciation. The latter association raises most
of the money, while the Associated Chari
ties Investigates and applies the relief
where it is most urgently demanded.
During the past year the charities were
enabled to take care of all the demands
made upon them. The winter of 1901-1902
was a compatatively mild one, but help was
seriously needed on a number of occasions,
so much so. in fact, that a public appeal
was necessitated In the latter part of Janu
ary. The appeal met with ready responses.
however, and the emergency was tided
happily over.
The Ruppert Home. near Anacostia, was
formally opened and dedicated May 21, tak
ing its place among the prominent -chari
table institutions of the District.
The present season found the charities
alert, for it was realized that the coal
strike of the summer and autumn would
result In serious conditions as to fuel. So
far the charities have succeeded' In filling
the orders of the poor. At times matters
have seemed a little precarious, but means
have been ifound to meet the ends.
The annual meeting of the Associated
Charities was held December 2. One of the
features of the charIty year was the lecture
of Jane Addams before the Associated
Oharities on the work of Hull House, Chi
Superintendent Shallenberger of the re
form school, who died early in the year,
was succeeded by John C. Kalleen.

is to be devoted to a main library building

seen so often riding with Miss-Miss Flower
up to Stabber's village, and, in the light of
what has since 'happened, you will admit
that he had reasons. Hear me through,''
he continued, as Field, sitting bolt upright
in the easy chair, essayed to speak.
"Neither Captain Blake nor I believe one
word to your dishonor in the matter, but it
looks as though'you had becen made a tool
of, and you are by no means the first man.
It was to see this fellow, Moreau-Eagle
Wing-whom you recognized at the Elk-she
was there so frequentlf-was It not?"
Into Field's pale face there had come a
look of infinite distress. For a moment he
hesitated, and little beads began to start
out on his forehead.
"Captain Ray," he finally said, "they tell
me-I heard It from the driver on the way
up from Rock Springs-that Miss Flower is
virtually a prisoner, that she had been in
league with the Sioux, and yet, until I can
see her-can secure miy release from a
promise, I have to answer you as I au
swered you before-I cannot s0y."'
Blake started impatiently and heaved up
from his lounging chair, his long legs taking
him. in three strides to the frost-covered
window at the front. Ray sadly shook his
dark, curly head.*
"You are to see her, Field. The general
bless him for a trump !-wouldn't listen to
a word against you in your absence; but
that girl has Involved everybody-you, her
aunt, who has been devotion itself to her,
her uncle, who was almost her slave. She
deliberately betrayed him into the hands
of the Sioux. In fact, this red robber 'and
villain, Moreau, 'is the only creature she
hasn't tried to 'work,' and he abandoned
her after she had lied, aneaked and stolen
for him."
"Captain Ray!" The cry cane from pallid
lips, and the young soldier started to ia
feet. appalled at such accusation..
"Every word of it is true," maid Ray. "She
joined him after his wounds, She Shared
(.is escape from the village at our approaeh.
She was with him when Blake nabbed them
at Bear Cliff. She was going with him fromt
here. What manner of girl was that, Field,
for you to be mixed up with?"
"He -is her half brotherr" protested Field,
with. kindling eyes. "She told me-every
thlnptold me of their childhood together,
"Told you a pack of Infernal lies!" burst
In Blake, no longer able to contain bimmi..
"Rade you a cat's paw; led you even to
