Fourteen hundred memben of the
American Woman's league arc ob
d T\i t li the belief that June 30
will be a day of triumph, for they have
taken on themselves the solemn vow
Hint the title of the beautiful bungalow
offered by the Los Angeles Herald
■hall be vested in the name of the l.os
Anpeles chapter on Hi. last day of the
month of roses and weddings. Every
ma.n. woman and child feels his or her ;
individual responsibility in this sreat '
proposition. Hint means the acquisition
of a valuable propert} and Indirectly
the winning of hundreds and hundred!
of dollars worth of special prizes.
For the benefit of members not fully
understanding the terms of the contest
the Los Angeles office of the American
Woman's league. 4L'4 Blanchard hall,
issues this statement:
"There fire four capital prizr<=, the
most eovetabir being a seven-room
two-story bungalow, worth (5300, with !
a 6(lxlB0-foot lot in College tract, Eight
sranrt prizes nnrl Innumerable upecla]
prizes arc offered every two week* upon
the increase during the fortnight
period. The votes secured during these :
periods count in the great total which
wins the capital prize. Through the
splendid CO-operation of the members,
Miss Van Allon, the league's candi
date, has won a $L'."iO lot in Brawley and
a $600 piano, which have been formal
ly turned over to the American Wom
an's league. In addition to winning
property valued nt {860, the Los Ange
lep chapter Is in the lead for the bunßa
"Miss Jennie Van Allen, local repre
sentative of the Los Angeles chapter,
'•was nominated the first day of the
contest and a few weeks later offered
, to turn all votes to the league, tog-ether
•with all future winnings, if the Los
, 'Angeles chapter desired to enter the
i contest for the purpose of acquiring the
1 bungalow as a temporary chapter
•house and a permanent league home,
i The proposition met with the unani
mous approval and support of the
chapter, and though distracted by the
: ardent desire to win a trip to the great
i national convention to he held in I'ni
! versity City June 9-10-11, the members
■ have bent every energy In securing
I subscriptions for The Herald, with the
result that the league leads with over
' 200.000 votes.
"Lat -week a member came into the
Office and Inquired: 'Isn't Miss Van
! Allen winning anything for us? 1 'Why,
' she. won a 1250 lot in Brawley!" 'Oh,
! yes. I know about that, but isn't she
'winning anything rise?' 'Certainly.
i she won a $600 piano! 1 'Oh, 1 read
i about that last week! Hasn't she won
' anything else?' 'Well, she is in the
■lead for the bungalow!' 'Yes, T fig
j ured that out for myself, but isn't she
1 winning anything else?'
"This is a spirit of discontent that
i If backed by yearly subscriptions will
I win, not only the bungalow, but the
I chief special prizes offered every fort
-1 night. One member exclaimed: I
don't care about the JBOO piano: I want
the bungalow,' but accepted it with joy
when she learned the increase applied
upon the grand total. The voting pow
er of a dollar depreciates every two
weeks, the scale diminishing from 200
votes in the beginning to 135 votes at
the close of the contest. Therefore it is
Important that subscriptions be rushed
to headquarters. 424 Blanchard hall, at
the earliest possible moment. Renew
als are greatly desired but clubs of ten
new members bring 100 votes on every
"One of the most important pledges
made the members Is that aft
er becoming identified with the
American Woman's league there
will never he any fines, fees,
dues or assessments; that all the
wonderful privileges of the organiza
tion will be absolutely free to members
and their dependent children— a great
Inducement to people who are weary
of being taxed at every turn. Hut the
■winning of the bungalow Is a matter
which every member is vitally inter
ested There is nothing intangible in
. the beautiful building and in making
the appeal to secure subscriptions to
win it. the leaders feel that members
are securing an equivalent for their
money and trouble, In having the priv
ilege of reading the Los Angeles Her
ald, a 'paper fit for the home -a paper
that has stood for some of the greatest
reforms in the city-a paper that was
the first to recognize the importance of
the American Woman's league in Los
Angeles and open a column for the
news of the league.' The American
Woman's league is proud to recognize
The Herald as its official organ in the
west and from the east will come a
nenerous support in the future.
"The winning of the bungalow means
the establishment of headquarters for
free classes in any of the 200 courses on
the list. Thus far the formation of
Classes has been delayed for lack of
classrooms, which will be obviated by
possessing the bungalow. It means fine
auarters for the official business of
the chapter, headquarters for regular
and special meetings and social affairs.
Also the opening of a woman's ex
change and employment bureau, of un
told value to the producer and consum
er to the employer and employe. Ihe
magnificent $25,000 chapter house to be
built by Mr. Lewis is a certainty, but
It takes tlnVe to build. The bungalow
will be ready for occupancy within
twenty-four hours after it is won.
"To make the winning an assured
fact the Los Angeles chapter will give
a big benefit performance for the
bungalow at tin Gamut club, 104:.
South Hone street. Saturday evening,
"May 25. A program of extraordinary
attraction* will be presented and will
include celebrated professionals, the
best local talent, a clever skit, a rare
musical treat and a brilliant Imitation
of Maud Allan's brilliant work. A full
house will mean 65,000 votes for the
bungalow. .;,
"The response to the appeal for sub
scriptions has been bo generous that
the officers of the I/'-- Angeles chapter
■wish to express their public apprecia
tion to the loyal members who have
come from the sick room, and have put
aside their business responsibilities and '
home cares to add their efforts to that '

Christian Science Handles
Evil with Single Purpose
All ethical teaching since time began
has concerned Itself with the destruc
tion of evil. Every system of religion
and philosophy the world has known
has attempted in one way ami another
to deal with evil, and with more or
success, according to the truth
and sincerity of its methods. Christian
Science undertakes the question o£
handling evil and stands with single
purpose upon Scriptural teaching for
its power and authority. Christ Jesus
disposed of evil in his lawful and com
plete destruction of the sin and piek
ni -.> ami death which confronted him,
as no other individual in history has
done; and his works surely prove him
the one "Wayshower" who has laid
the foundation for the certain destruc
tion of ail error. All forms of Chris
tian belief have held to Christ Jesus as
the Saviour, but these beliefs have been
so varied and so inadequate that no
mortal, by means of any one of them,
has been able to remove human ills
from his experience as did the early
disciple.- and this situation naturally
convinces us that religionists have
tailed correctly to understand the basis
and tile rule of Jesus' teaching, and
only [partially demolished evil be
cause they have known only "in part."
Christian Scientists are finding in the
teaching of Christian Science a fuller
knowledge of God and His law than
they have had heretofore; and they
are Impressed with a mighty hope for
a whole deliverance Horn ail that op
poses God as they live and obey what
Christian Science shows to them about
God, God's man and God's universe.
Christian Science deals with evil by
recognizing it to be always primarily
mental, and it reaches the root of the
matter by urging Its adherent to at
tend first to the reformation of himself
and to get about the correction of his
own thought. Christian Science de
clares that evil is of mental origin,
and has for lta authority Jesus' teai h
lng that the sin Is first In the heart.
Evil must be mentally re< ognlzed, be
lieved In, feared or Indulged, in order
to appear at all; and logically, to cast
out the fear of or indulgence in evil is
to begin at the right i nd lor its de
struction. He who ceases to liate k
cannot do harm. He who can put aside
appetite and greed, cannot defraud his
brothci-. And Christian Self nee not
only helps you, through showing you
how and why evil lias no more power
than you give it, thus to conquer your
self, but it goes farther and teaches
you that when confidence in an under
standable God lessens your I'eai' of and
belief iii evil, you are logically less
assailed by the evils, which threaten
you from what seems to be a source
outside yourself. Not only can the.
tempted or sin-burdened mortal aban
don more easily his sin, by the help
of Christian Science, but you who fear
that evil may make unhappy the good
■■I earth can come out from such bi
lief ami see righteousness divinely pro
tected In the present hour wherever it
. nil-' God's blessing. Christian Science
demands that you cast from you all
belief that evil can op.-rate in human
affairs, and that you cherish contin
ually in your thinking the understand
ing thai God, good, as divine Mind
rvw here, has all-power, knows
oldy good and sends only good Upon
humanity. Doing this you transform
your consciousness. Fear of evil, and
i sequently evil, will abate in your
experience, and a happier, healthier
condition here on earth will be yours,
it is true that much evil leem to
• xi*t in the world over which >uu huvu
no control. But If you obey the teach
ing of Christian Science and change
your thinking about this, the evil at
large will have less and less control
over you, and that is the Important
consideration. You can govern your
own belief In evil and cast it out as you
| practice right-thinking, ana iw more
than this is required of you. To be "a
law unto yourself" is all that you can
do, but this is enough to deliver you,
and it lessens tho bulk of evil believ
ing in the world at large by the
measure of your own overcoming. To
reduce the world's evil by destroying
your own sense of evil Is to be a true
reformer; and to begin any oilier way
than in correcting your own thoughts,
is to fail.
Christian Science, then, is in thfi
world to cope with evil and to remove
all human belief in it. Its teaching
takes issue with all philosophies which
Ignore evil, and. on Hie other hand,
with all religions which endow evil with
supposed power. To declare, in Chris
tian Science, that God Is all. and all
power, by no menus releases you from
detecting and uncovering evil; rather
does it emiip you for the task. Nor
does Christian Science permit you to
believe that evil Is any person, place, or
thing: it teaches you its unreality In
the sight of God, and upon this basis
helps you to prove it unreal to your
self and to othl is anil so line! Tree loin
from it.
<hristian Science urges you. because
all handling of evil is mental, to dis
tinguish clearly between dealing with
evil and associating with it. Your first
step is to detect evil its evil; something
subtle may have been disguised to you
as good, and you must see it as evil be
fore you can be ready to dispose of it.
Your next step is to refuse to associate
mentally with this bit of evil, and to
deal with it promptly and effectually.
To detect evil and then to go about
relating it, or to hold it in thought by
worrying, fearing, lamenting, brooding
or otherwise cherishing It, is to associ
ate with it and lo give it all the life ;md
activity it needs to perpetuate It. Your
only way, when you detect an error, is
to refuse to think ii or to let it think or
speak through you. According to your
Rteadfatsness in excluding evil from
thought after you have once unmasked
it, do you deal with it scientifically, and
according to this* same steadfastness
are you blessed.—Chrlßtlan Science

as lo throw a clock at his wife, llar
tigg was in a. playful mood when he ar
rived at his home, after a. night out,
and remarking, ■'How time Hies," let
drive with the clock, which struck his
better Wttlf on the arm.
The man was arrested cm a technical
charge of disturbing the peace. Ho
