Weddings and Other Events of a Wednesday in June The Indorsement of Equal Suffrage by the Federation of Wom en’s Clubs and Its Meaning—Other Interests of Women. Wednesday Dancing Club Enjoys a Beautiful Dinner Dance at Tutwiler Hotel—Other Topics—Notes By MYRTLE MILES The recent indorsement or equal suf frage by the General Federation of Wom en's Clubs Is regarded as a decided tri umph among those who are laboring for the success of the movement. The Wom an's Journal, which is the equal suffrage organ, this weeks says it is really a great event, commenting on the fact as fol lows; It is especially significant in view of the fact that the general federation Is the largest organization of women in this country working for Improved legislation; and the resolution passed by the more than 2000 delegates at Chicago shows that the federation’s leading and most repre sentative women are fully convinced that women ought to vote. Belief in equal suffrage 1s growing all over the country; but at the successive biennials of the general federation It has been possible to watch its rise as in a ba rometer. In the early days, when the clubs were few and timid, and were de voted mainly to literature and self culture, all mention of suffrage was forbidden. As the clubs began to broaden their scope, branching out from Shakespeare and Browning to social service and efforts for the public good, the members broadened their own minds as well, and the number of suffragists constantly grew. The more the women worked for improved legisla tion, the more they came to want to vote. The subject began to be mentioned at the biennials, and to be greeted with warm •applause. State after state gave women the ballot, and the delegates from those states told at the biennials what a help they had found It. Club after club abol ished Its taboo on suffrage; state after Btate admitted suffrage clubs to member ship in the federation. Finally, one state federation after another came out boldly for the principle, and the pressure became strong upon the general federation to do likewise. For a long time the official board resist ed this pressure. It was not because they were opposed to votes for women; the ma jority of the officers have long been suf fragists, and among the delegates sut frage sentiment has been so general that It lias been commonly said for years that no anti-suffragist could ever be elected president. But most of the officers ob jected to having the general federation indorse woman suffrage because they sin cerely feared that it would injure the fed eration's usefulness—would keep some of the more timid and conservative clubs from joining it—just the ones that most needed its help, and would perhaps even drive some that had already joined to withdraw. Prophecies ttiat it would "split the federation" were freely made by the more bigoted antis. Even two years ngo these considerations still had so much weight that at the California biennial tin officers maneuvered successfully to keel the question of Indorsement from belli! brought squarely before the convention But the opposition expressed was almost wholly on the ground of expediency. Hard ly a word wa* utter*! against the prin ciple. The advance of the suffrage movement during the past two years has been phe nomenal; and when the delegates to this biennial gathered in Chicago, equal suf frage overshadowed all other questions. It soon became clear that indorsement was a foregone conclusion. We have every reason to rejoice both in the squareness of tile resolution and in the overwhelming majority by which it was carried. The op position was In a hopeless minority, and did not even put up a fight on the floor ol the convention. The circumstances were in many ways propitious. The meeting was held in Chi cago, where 168,000 women lately voted and voted so well as to refute all objec tions. The delegates bad heard the bon ored voice of Jane Addams speak of worn ell's duty to use the ballot as a tool ti bring about much needed improvements They bad listened to the dignified and Im pressive address of Mrs. Carrie Chapmai •"att, who better than anyone else couh show them the world-wide scope and lm portance of the equal rights movement But. over and above all, the time was ripe As Victor Hugo well says, nothing cai stand against “the idea whose time ha; come.” WEDNESDAY CLUBS DINNER DANCE A BRILLIANT EVENT , At intervals throughout tile soasm the Wednesday Night Poncing clIV danced and dined at the Country clul nt some Saturday night affair, thes; meetings introducing a charming cle ■ im lit In the season's programmes, am j having additional pleasure because til; -3toiRiiig,tl)s The Ridgely Tenants Take Just Pride In their beautiful apartments In the Ridgely.

Last night a similar arrangement was made and the club danced, together ;it the new Tutwiler hotel. The gran! ballroom was reserved for their use and tallies were placed about the wall In that superb apartment, leaving gen erous space iti the center for the danc ing. During the service of an elaborate menu the hotel's orchestra, undr the leadership of Mr. Wiegand. played an exquisite programme of dance music, and from the orchestra’s vantage point in the balcony the melody as it came to the dancers enjoying all tlie intri cacies of the new steps—and the club is composed of some of the most experi • lancers in the south—seemed quite per fect. The tables were beautifully ap pointed, and each had its central decor ation fashioned of Shasta daisies, these beautiful flowers of summer showing with especial appropriateness against a background of soft color harmonies such as one finds in tills picturesque ballroom, and with gratifying fitness also In keeping with the daintiness of the summer dancing frocks worn by the women of the party.

C., June 24.—(Special.> Mr. Hugh F. Latimer of Birmingham and .Miss Kathleen Ware of Asheville were married this evening at 9 o’clock at Cen tral Methodist Episcopal church, south, in the presence of relatives and close friends. The wedding was a very quiet affair on account of the ill health of the mother of the bride, the ceremony being performed by the Rev. J. C. Rowe, D. D., the bride’s pastor, following the regular weekly prayer services. Mr. and Mrs. T^ntimer left immediately for a wedding I trip, after which they will go to Bir- I mingham to reside. On account of the prominence of Miss Ware, the bride, in social, religious and educational work In Asheville, and this immediate vicinity, much interest has been manifested in her engagement to Mr. Ijatimer, which was announced several | weeks ago at a reception given in her hono» at the residence of Mrs. Neptune Buckner in Aston Place. Mrs. Latimer has been president of the district Baraca-Philathea union and members of those religious organizations had charge of the decorations and other pretty little details of the wedding to- j night. In addition to her church activ-i ities the bride of tonight has been an officer of the local Young Women’s Chris- ! tian association and was a member of j the faculty of the Asheville High school. I The popularity of Miss Ware added to the interest manifested in the series of pre-nuptial affairs which were given, all informally. In her honor. At a recent garden party the bride-to-be was show ered with presents of silver, cut glass and linen. At this affair th*» close friends ow Miss Ware surrounded her, while Mrs. R. C. Stevens, a schoolmate, of fered the following toast: "Here’s to the girl with bright, brown eyeB; Here’s to the lassie with the bright, sunny smile; Here’s to the girl whose joyousness the , saddest hours beguile; Here's to the girl with a loving heart and a willing mind and a helping hand, i Who loyal hath been in every hard task; leader of our working band; Here’s to her health and happiness and all good things besides— Here's to the one we love so dear— Here's to Kathleen, the bride." i The bride is the attractive daughter of Dr. and Mrs. A. B. Ware .and has re sided in Asheville practically all of her life. As the executive officer of the Ba racas and Philatheas. she has made an i enviable record, her personal charms add r Ing to her general ability as president ) of the joint organizations. When the ■ announcement of the engagement of Miss Ware to Mr. Latimer was made recently, 1 and with it word that they would reside * in Birmingham, resolutions of regret upon her departure were passed and commit : tees were named to present the same to the bride-to-be. Miss Ware was at one time prominently mentioned in connec tion with the prlncipalship of the local high school, and also the entire Athe vllle public school system. Mr. Latimer is a native of South Caro lina and having visited Asheville quite often in the past has made many friends here. He has resided in Birmingham for sometime past, being district passanger agent of the Queen and Crescent route. Paying tribute to Mr. Latimer today, a high railway official said: "Hugh F. Latimer is undoubtedly one of the best men, in every sense of the word, in the railway service in the south. The entire railroad world smiles with him on his happy day and we wish for Mr. and Mrs. Latimer the very best of luck always." Mr. Latimer came up from Birmingham early in the week. Like his bride, he has been active for a long time past In religious work in Birmingham, being superintendent of the Southstde Baptist Sunday school and a pillar of strength In that church. He Is likewise promi nent in the Young Men’s Christian asso ciation and civic circles. parliamentary" law CLASS THIS MORNING The regular meeting of the btudy ctase for parliamentary law will occur thie morning at equal suffrage headquarters, Cable building.

MISS BESSIE EVANS GIVES A HOUSE PARTY Miss Bessie Evans’ dance last evening for her guest, Miss Newill Brown ol Faunsilale, wps one of the especially at tractive events of the week. She enter tained the girls who compose the M. P. C club, and an equal number of young men, and the dance, Informal as are moat ol the entertainments of the soasotu wai characterized by a delightful simplicity Punch and Ices were served during th< evening. The guests were: 7 1 Miss Anita Eustls. Miss Orlene/Bar •ett. Miss Alios Jones, Miss lislep Mo 'S, Miss Bertha Clement, District Nurse of the Anti-Tuberculosis Association, Chats With Dolly B.r DOLLY DALRYMPLD Every girl you know goes through that stage in life when the keenest desire of her heart is to become a trained nurse or an actress. Perhaps this might be called the 'Im pressionistic" stage, For— Then she gets the color and the lights and the shadows— But— Not the technique. Tile crisp, immaculate uniform of the nurse—the fool hand on the fevered brow, the holding of the cup of cold water to the parched Ups—this is the picture that appeals to her In a vague sort of roman tic way. And— So— She turns to nursing as a sort of ad venture. Of course Many times it is finance and not ro mance that sends a girl forth on this mis sion. Looking for a profession, she finds that her training may bA had free of charge and from $25 to $35 a week held out as a .steady salary Is better far than clerking or teaching. Still— Again— I The psychology of her desire is the ad vance impulse, where she belongs to some simple work-adny household. It means some little social distinction— perhaps much—and her ambition sings merrily at the thought. 80— \\ e see tills type with utter naivete de ciding to follow the profession. In any or all of these cases the girl really has no idea of the stern realities of a nurses duties. Triqls? Oh. yes. there are many, but the effi cient nurse must be willing and ready to “eat up" the trials in store for her, trials fit for a poor princess in a fairy tale, and which she must conquer with no other magic help than the dwarfs of her own Btrength—the sprites of her own intelligence. It is all trial from the first—there is no last, unless she gives it up entirely. Trials of her character, trials of her | mind, trials of her perseverance, trials of her temper, trials of her pride—all trials! A nurse's life Is a little life training in a nut shell, That’s it. She must work from morning until night and from night until morning oft times, , with the patience of Job and the brain of Athene! Can you find a moro exacting calling one that demands more womanliness, more character, more Christianity? There came to this city some three months ago. through the generosity of Birminghrim’.s splendid and public spirited citizen, Mr. Phigene T,. BroWn. a young woman who has given her life work to nursing the victims of tuberculosis. Miss Bertha Clement is the name of the young woman in question, and her office is that of district nurse of the Anti-Tu berculosis association. There is a beautiful sentiment whieh prompted the thought in Mr. Brown's heart to contribute his “mite," so to speak, by employing the services of Miss Clement in nllevinting the suffering of his fellow men—those who are victims of the great white plague. Miss Clement for two years and a half was at the bedside of Mr. William Gar rett Brown—the youngest brother of Mr. Eugene Brown, and all through his pa thetic illness—hopeless even from the start. Miss Clement watched over him and administered In her gentle, tender way every comfort that could palliate his pain and suffering. Since then Mr. Eugene Brown has ren dered a service past calculation In its effect 1n making It possible for Miss Clement to be employed here by the Anti Tuberculosis association. It is a touching tribute to the memory of hie beloved and honored brother—a material benefit to the community which is nriceless In its usefulness. Miss Clement’s tribute to the mind and personality of the late Mr. William Gar rott Brown is surpassing sweet and kind. This noble and honored son of Alabama, whose intellect and mind were second to none in all this broad land, is a theme of never ending tenderness on her part and she knew him perhaps better than anyone else. Miss Clement is the type of woman who srems bv nature to be fitted for the high falling of p nurse. Strength, physically and mentally, as • ert themselves in her sneech and man ner and movement, and her kindliness and power withall make her a most im rpessive character—a woman on whom you could relv with faith and hope and n feel of absolute confidence in any great c limacteric. Her work among the tubercular patients here has mot with happy results on all sides. She is so earnest and so interested and so hopeful—that is the most characteris tic of her many attributes—of the even tual stamping out of the dread white plague that success is hound to be her reward—success full measure and to over flowing. “T've been a trained nurse for 10 years now." Miss Clement told me the other dnv when we were talking about her work, “it was a hard tight to gain the consent of my family to take up nursing as a profession, but T had al ways wanted to do it.

Calfee MISS BERTHA CLEMENT District Nurse of the Anti-Tuberculosis Association—Photo by “The Stephenson Studio” little playmates had sickness in their i doll families I was asked to look after j them, and so you see it really is an ' innate love of nursing that prompted me to follow it as a profession.” "How particularly did you happen to i affiliate yourself with the nursing of j tubercular cases?" I asked. “You see I am a native of Asheville, j N. C.," Miss Clement said, "and you know what a center that is for tuber cular patients. 1 hardly know where to ! draw the line between my work in general nursing and taking up tuber culosis ns a specialty. I will say this, however, that some years ago when I found that tuberculosis was pronounced a curable disease, I made my choice and 1 leave never regretted it. I am not at all afraid of it and often think I am immune. I huve worked with Dr. Dunn a great deal—you know he is one of tiie greatest specialists of the* j day in tubercular troubles—in fact all the doctors In Asheville have innumera ble cases of tuberculosis to deal with and if a nurse wants to do the best type of work, she cannot refuse these oases." "You were speaking of tuberculosis as a curable disease," 1 observed. "T know many doctors have pronounced it so. but what do you think of it per sonally?" "1 believe it is a curable disease," said Miss Clement, "provided it is taken in its Incipiency. Just as small pox and diphtheria and many other diseases have been found to be curable so is tuberculosis. The question is not a medical one, however, but education al. Its prevention after all Is better than Its cure, and what is most needed to avoid its terrible ravages is for the people to be educated to its needs and requirements, and to put their shoulder to the wheel and prevent it." "In this district." Miss Clement con tinued, “I find a very promising field. I cannot say too much in praise of Dr. KaVes and the splendid work lie has accomplished. With the means and the time that the Anti-Tuberculosis asso ciation has been working. I think wonderful things have been done." "What strikes you as the most de ficient quality in the work?" I asked. "T would say that the one of the most important things that is needed.” was the answer, "is provision for the negroes. Of course on account of their mode of life, their homes and sur roundings the disease is quite pro nounced—more so than among the white people. You have no idea how heartily the negroes co-operate with us In our work. The better class is deeply interested in what we tell them and often come to the association for cups. They seem to realize the value of the education we are trying to give them In the matter of taking care of themselves." "It is astounding how many resent the simple treatment—and It Is so simple—just plenty of fresh air and rest," said Miss Clement." You have no Idea how many resort to patent medi cines." "But you can scarcely blame them," I Interrupted. "It’s like a drowning man catching at a straw." "That is quite true," Miss Clement replied, "but if they only realized the harm in all those things. That Is what we try to teach them: how to take care of themselVes and the proper sanitary conditions. In many cases we have to furnish milk for them. Of Miss Sadie Tharin, Mrs. J. F.

WILLIAMS IN WOODLAWN One of the prettiest weddings in a sea son of nuptial events was that of Miss Ruby Carol Sharp and Mr. Elbert Marvin W illiams, which was solemnized last evening at 8 o'clock at the Woodlawn Methodist church. The church was beautiful with its dec orations consisting of lilies, roses and ferns. The altar rail was draped with trailing smllax and lighted by stately ta i pers. A delightful musical programme i w*8 rendered by Mr. and Mrs. W. N. . Sharpe preceding and during the cere , many. The ushers, Mr. W. T. Dixon and Mr. I Marvin Garrison led the bridal proces sional, entering from opposite aisles and crossing at the altar. Mi9s Mariam Love i lady, Miss Margaret Nall, Miss Mabel i Lovelady and Miss Myrtle Jones, as flower maids, followed. They wore Whitt 1 lingerie gowns with pastel rainbow col ored girdles and carried baskets of sweel peas. The bridesmaids, Miss Kate Rogers Miss Ruby Morton. Miss Mildred Rost and Miss Marie Couch, in rainbow shadet 1 of crepe de chine and carrying sweel peas, entered In the order named with the groomsman, Mr. Irving McDonald , Mr. Edgar Montgomery, Mr. Claude Mor I ton and Dr. J.

In go ing from home to home where the dis ease has developed of course we do everything that can be done, but prop er living and proper precaution helps more than anything else in the world.” "Dr. Eaves has done everything pos sible to get the better class of colored people Interested,” Miss Clement con tinued, "and during the Sociological congress recently several meetings were held at the Sixteenth street Bap tist church and much intrest was man ifested. Besides provision for the ne groes we need a place for the advanced cases, as much as anything else, so that they will not have to be in the camp with incipient cases. It is so de pressing to those who are only slightly sick to be near those whose cases are practically hopeless. The camp can only accommodate 32 patients, and you sec that is a very limited number. oi course in many of the advanced case* that come to us arrangements can be made for sleeping porches in the home of the patient, and then it is not nec essary to take them to the camp. In other eases we have no chance to do this, hence the need of a hospital for advanced cases.” "How do you think the climate of Birmingham affects the tubercular pa tient?” I asked. "I think out of the city on the moun tains and hill tops about here that it is fully as curative and beneficial as Asheville or Denver,” said Miss ('leni ent. "Of course the dust and dirt of tlie city is bad from any standpoint, but camps located on the mountains are excellent. Besides, think what it means, the expense, the enormous ex pense connected with a long residence in North Carolina or Colorado! So many cannot afford these trips and it meams life to them to be able to get the same benefit here at home for so much less. The only thing that we need to perfect our work here is just sufficient means! it is a glorious work, and when the people once awaken to Its possibilities and realize what it means, the stamping out of the great white plague, there will he rejoicing among the multitudes who fear it and who know so little of how to cope with it now.” — ■ ....-... .. — **'» 1 Sweetest Joy in Life U found in the creation of a home and providing I for the family.

P." j Use Linoleum Varnish “I noticed in the Corner Margaret M.'s advice against varnishing linoleum. Lin- ( oleum unless of an expensive grade, wit hi j colors going all the way through, will i 8 *on wear off in the most used places. 1 We have linoleum that has been used 20 J years that looks like new. By all means , varnish it when first laid and every six . months after, but use only linoleum var- < nish, which dries quickly, never is sticky, and leaves a surface as hard and smooth as glass and as easily cleaned. I have a coupe that I wish I might share with some shut-in or tired mother once a \ week. I am sure she would enjoy a ride i through the park now that the weather 1 is enjoyable, but I can take but one at a i time as my car only seats with com fort.

Now’ it so happens that I have ! on hand a lot of such pieces, saved up 1 for a long time by my recently deceased 1 wife, who at one time was in the dress making business. It was her wish that some worthy person should have these pieces to occupy their idle hours and make some good use of them in making quilts or something else, and I am ready and j willing to so distribute them. Hence this j letter. There are pieces of various sizes i and of all colors and too many to give i to one person—perhaps 40 pounds in all. I w-ould expect recipients to pay carrying I charges, by sending through you or to me direct postage for packages to be mailed < or stamps or money to cover the necessary i express charges. I do not like to send i by express ‘collect’ for fear of the pos ! siblllty of having to pay return charges, i | so the applicants will have to risk a few’ c6nts. I do not undertake to make any deliveries anywhere personally or at my own house. I shall only send as stated , ar.d on request, but I will gladly do pack ! ing, addressing, and answer letters. If j you, therefore, will keep this letter on file for future requests and will give ap plicants my address and ‘terms’ I will cheerfully dole out the pieces as long as they last and will also, if you so desire, advise you where they are sent and w’hen the supply is exhausted.

When brown and tender take out the meat, add a little more flour, brown to make gravy; all three spoons of vinegar (pickled) to a [cup of water. Some do not like onion in i the gravy, but we do, and strain the ! gravy. This is called the genuine hasen i pfeffer or baked potatoes. All pickled meats, fried or stewed, need their oppo sites as rice, hominy, cornbread, potatoes. No desserts should be served with potted meats.
