arranging for one of the busiest and
most Instructive years they have ever
passed. The year books have almost
{Without exception been received from
the publishers and most of them have
found a way to my desk. Cbnning their
pages one can but recoglze the Insis
tence on broader culture and deeper
thought which the years of study and
research have given to women who
compose the club world. The plans are
excellent and those who know the
women who form the big membership
of the federation living In this city
can Judge the effect of club work In
the high type of feminine culture which
they represent.
The Cadmcan club Is oldest of them
all. The calendar is an Inspiration, and
with Mrs. Sterling A. Wood as presi
dent, Mrs. Sterling Foster vice presi
dent, Mrs. W. S. Lovell secretary and
Miss W. M. Allen leader there may be
ho doubt of the successful finish of the
year’s task by such women as Mrs.

Mrs. E. J. Dunn, Mrs. Sterling J. Fos

a type of the programme one might
mention the one to occur December 6,
which includes these topics:

Mrs. Henley.
2. Women in the Field of Politics: the
Pros and Cons—Mrs. Leedy.
3. Discussion, led by Mrs. Smith.
Highinml Book
The Highland Book club nrlved at Its
majority last year. It was organized in
the year 1891 and thus In age stands next
to the Cadmean. In excellence of work,
in the cleverness of tile women compos
ing It, it ranks next to none.
Mrs. Robert D. Johnston was the foun
der of the Book club and was for manv
years Its president. This offico Is now
held by Mrs. T. O. Smith, as some time
(ago Mrs. Johnston plead that Increasing
deafness made It difficult for her to con
duct parliamentary proceedings. Her de
voted associates would not, however, con
aent to have her altogether resign her
post, so she Is now founder-president,
■while Mrs. Smith Is the presiding officer.
Mrs. R. H. Pearson, vice president, Mr,
Oeorge Connors secretary, and Mrs. Al
gernon Nelson treasurer.
The calendar this year was arranged by
Mrs. Frank HollaiW Lathrop and Mrs.
I«Us Fulenwlder, and furnishes one of
the most delightful hits of reading to he
had at this season, when the thoughts of
all are turning to winter arrangements.
It Indicates a wide-awake, progressive
spirit that Is always attractive in a
(roup of women students. Among the
■ubject sto receive consideration are free
dom. religion, health, sociology, socialism,
j woman, the child, race regeneration, wcl
' fare and psychology.
"Labor Day" Is the subject of one of
I the meetings. Mrs. Sessions will give a

24 YEARS
EXPERIENCE
It is reasonable to sup- I
pose that when an indi
vidual or a firm has pur
sued one line of endeavor
for 24 years he or it
should be tolerably effic
ient by the end of that
time.
We have been in the
business of decorating
homes, exclusively, for the
last 24 years. Decorating
is not an experiment with
us, but a life work. It is
bdt natural that, with the
cumulfttive experience of
nearly a quarter of a cen
jtury, we should be as
I adept and skillful in our
profession as an actor, a
doctor or a lawyer who
: has pursued his calling a
like number of years, is in
bis.
You, who decorate a
home only a few times at
best in a lifetime, should
find our experience of in
calculable value to you.

Quest Club
The Quest iclub, organized In 1899, has a
membership of 30, who have planned to
devote the coining year to a study of the
nncient world, as a department of a
four-year course in “World literature.”
While this club, as in the past, will con
tribute to the work and support of va
rious philanthropies, and is in fullest
sympathy with those movements toward
social and civic betterment, it is strictly
devoted to literary research, believing
that social and civic service is the out
growth and measure of self culture.
Several meetings during the year will
be devoted to the discussion of some Im
portant current topics.
The year book of the club Is indicative
cf the serious intent to learn the related
ness cf the age; and to know ourselves
as parts and proportions of one wondrous
whole; to find that the deepest facts of
history are recorded in the unalterable
pages of literature, and are the answers
of each ago to the infinite and eternal
questions of human life.
Beginning with the myths and legends
of the ancient world that, without the
faith of reason, yet with a language of
the heart, has left us the heritage of
•hopes and fears, of songs and prayers
that make us one.
Several programmes are arranged for a
study of the religions and ethics of
China and her great leaders of thought.
A brief survey of Vedic and Sanskrit
literature in which the union of the
sacred and profane still puzzles the
judgment of th« world is th« subject
of four meetings. Assyrian and Baby
lonian art, life and literature and an
cient Egyptian civilization arc briefly
reviewed. The year closes with four
programmes devoted to Hebrew liquids
and Old Testament literature.
The officers of the Quest include Mrs.
Haskins Williams, president. Mrs. F. B
Glass, vice president. Mrs. R. Y. Jones,
secretary, and Mrs. Elliott Carper, trea
surer. Mrs. J. F. Rankin is orthoepist.

Culture
The Culture club’s calendar is al
ways anticipated with keen interest
as promising a continuous intellectual
treat throughout the winter. It Is h.
no means a disappointment, though th
work will cover a past era instead of
dealing with modern problems of which
these women have always shown such
a clever grasp. Italian history, art and
literature will be pursued throughout
the season.
The Culture club was organized and
federated In 1008 since when the high
honors possible to federated clubs have
come to them thick and fust, several
of the prize papers having come from
various members. Mrs. Howard Gass

In the series of club programmes. A
study of the drama is beautifully out
lined—comprehensive and yet so care
fully selected as never to be open to the
charge of “heaviness.” Ten minutes, by

and their usage; this drill it Is expected
will be a great benefit.
The history of the drama is first dis
cussed and drama, is divided into the
various types: tlie religious drama, mod
ern and mediaeval. “Everyman,” the
great morality play, atid “Magda” are
among the plays to be studied in detail.
Bernard Shaw is one of the playwrights
to receive critical attention. A pro
gramme which exemplifies the work of
the club deals with Shaw’s works thus:

(c), ids significance. Discussion (with
leader): What constitutes a moral play?
