I have been sent to Trance to purchase i

j The Twentieth Century <"lub raised the
-money already sent to France largely :

banks, called "maisonettes." which are

I tiie aid of tlie Twentieth Century
J J Club in the work which had so ap- ;
I ! pealed to her. i
j i Under the auspices of the club a !
) | meeting was held in All Souls' Church.
1 > -l-i-l. a eii?silr?r ivhr. hail visited I
I the destroyed villages, told the story of j
(the devastation and of the needs iti the
lease. At that meeting; about $250 was
j raised as a nucleus for the fund. The
| idea of the distribution of the little
savings "maisonettes" is due to the
i thoughtfulness of Mrs. Frank W. Fitz|
Patrick. a member of the Twentieth
[Century Flub. The "maisonettes" were
designed by her husband, the artist and
i architect.
I Members of the Twentieth Century
! CItib distributed the "maisonettes"
j among; people who showed an interest.
! Persons not connected with the organization
heard of the savings banks and
of the object in view and asked for
them. The tirst returns from the maisonettes
were made recently.
Three Drafts Forwarded.
A first draft for 1.328 francs had been
sent to the Comtesse de Byras immediately
following the lecture. When
the maisonettes were collected and
their contents removed a second draft
to an amount of 3,795 francs was transmitted.
A little later further contributions
and box collections enabled
the club to send a third draft amounting
to 2,065 francs to Paris. The total
already transmitted is 7,187 francs.
The work that the Twentieth Century
Club is doing aroused interest in
other cities. Tu Boston Mrs. F. B
i Marcan, who before her marriage was
Agnes Fitzpatrick of this city, took
up the work of distributing the maisonettes.
The Lend a Hand Society is
aiding the cause in Boston. Through
Mrs. Marean's efforts about 1,600 francs
already have been added to the fund.
The money has been included in the
drafts sent to Paris.
Jn Omaha, Neb., a schoolboy. George
Paul Borglum, who is a nephew of
Mine. Vignal, the wife of Col. Vignal,
military attache at the French embassy,
undertook to aid the work. Ilf
wrote for one of the little savings
banks and in a short time he raised
enough money to furnish three houses.
I He is continuing- the work and has
I written that he is making fine progI
Work Begun Elsewhere.
I In Chicago a former president of the
I Twentieth Century Club. Mrs. John E.
I Wilkie, lias take up the maisonette
I work. Interest in the work in MaryI
land has been stimulated by Mrs. Guiori
1 Miller, a former president of the TwenJ
tieth Century Club, and in the state of
^5 Maine by Mrs. Ernest A. Allan, who is
spending the winter in Washington and
so became acquainted with the object
in view.
Furniture for two houses was made
^ possible by a contribution from the
girl students of Guriston Hall Their
interest iri the matter was so keen that,
they denied themselves certain accustomed
delicacies for a week and put the
money which they saved into the fund.
An offer has come to Mrs. Clark from
a father arid son in Boston to go to
France at their own expense and there
to give their labor to the work of
erecting the houses. Eabor is scarce in
France, because all the young men are
at the front.

On the receipt of the first draft in
aid of the Maine work the Comtesse
Madeleine de Byras wrote a letter to
Mrs. Clark from which these are extracts:
i "Many thanks for your kind letter
land the generous gift of the Twentieth
J Century Club to the Bon Cite. Would
you please transmit our heartiest
thanks to all who have contributed and
are contributing to our work in the
devastated departments anil tell them
how grateful we are in France for all
you are doing for us in America V
Would you also kindly transmit our
very best thanks to the girls who have
generously helped the Bon Cite; so
I much good work is being done with
their contributions? * The poor
peasants have suffered terribly from
the war; their homes have been destroyed.
and this winter has been to
them an exceptionally severe one in
two departments, bitterly cold and
heavy snow. We are sending them
beds, covers, stoves, etc., in great quantities.
Our work, unfortunately, is almost
limitless?so much has been
