The Southern woman you read about a winsome, extremely feminine, impractical, sentimental sort of person, cherishing ideals of a bygone era, and plaintively wishing for thc "good old days" of slaves and plantations. The Southern woman as she is (according to one of the number), active, busy, aggressive, but none thc less feminine, keenly interested in cfvic matters, ivorking for the most advanced reforms, and agitating legislation patterned after that of the livest Western States. This is thc contrast pictured vividly by Mrs. W. H. Wiggs, of At lanta, who tells of thc numerous activities' of women in her city and State. By J..R. HILDEBRAND. "Women of the South have sud den! awakened, as If over night. to their civic duties.' And to prove that statement Mrs. W. H. Wiggs. of Atlanta. Ga.. enumerated a few activities of the women of her city. They are planning farmers' wives' institutes In connection with the farmers' institutes this fall. They are urging upon the State Legislature half a dozen bills for the betterment of children. They have established industrial homes for the women taken from the segregated district of Atlanta when lt was abolished. They are making , nght for pure milk In Atlanta.

Compiled by John G. Quinius, the Sunshine Man. O God. who workest hitherto. Working In all we see. Fain would we be. and bear, and do. As best it pleaseth Thee. The toil of brain, or heart, or band Is man's appointed lot; Ho who God's call can understand. Will work, and murmur not. Our skill of hand and strength of limb Are not our own. but. Thine. We link them to the work of Him Who made all life divine. Our Brother-Friend. Thy holy Son. Shared all our lot and strife; And nobl will our work be dona. If moulded by His life. T. W. Freckleton.

"Though we had no means of enforcing their stay we madc tha home so attractive, and offered them so many opportuni ties for learning to cam an honest living that most of the girls who came to us remained until they were put into positions wnere they cams under good Influences. "'The manner of the founding of this home Is highly Interesting. The woman who conducted one of the most notorious resorts In the city rave $2,500 as a nucleus for the Martha Home. She now Is engaged in a legitimate business in another city, and has taken the greatest in terest in the progress we are making with our girls. Were Feeble-Minded. "'Of course, more than half the girls taken from the red-light dis trict were feablc-mlnded. These were taken care of In State Institutions. But we believe among the other half we have succeeded In doing some genuine and lasting reformatory work." Or.e enlightening fact growing out of the study of vice conditions In At lanta was that a large proportion of the girls came from rural districts. For that reason we are trying to formulate some more effective plan for caring for girls from the tountry when they come to Atlanta.
