SOME UNIQUE EXHIBITS
Portions of the Woman’s Build
ing Wherein Abounds
THE SOUTHERN ATMOSPHERE
'■-- • ■ 1
The Individuality of the Women of the South
The First College in the World
for Women.
Atlanta. G»., Oct. 12.-^The most Inter
esting place In the w^nan's building to
visitors looking for-a real southern at
mosphere Is the New Orleans room; for
there one finds nothing save the genuine
products of southern Industry ahd art;
and It is not only attractive on that ac
count but because the exhibit Is in itself
well selected and thoroughly artistic. The
furniture Is all of massive carved niahog
ony of the sort that Is now getting to be
Very rare In New Orleans, since the seek
er lor antiques has invauea us precincts.
There is an oud, little single bed of
mahogony, almost as black as ebony, and
It Is a prize tor which any ot the big
Gotham shops would give >100. The rug
on the floor is of tail and white striped
CtHKon stuff, and so are the curtains
gracefully hung at the windows. These
and. a number of fine embroideries and
tapestries coine from the Arcadians, peo
ple of an odd little settlement III lower
Louisiana, which was Evangeline s coun
try, and where the habits, homes and in
dustries of tne people are as primitive
ns they were 15u years ago. (.'able lias
told of their life, but this exhibit Is really
the first that has ever been made of
their work. An odd little screen done by
one of these women contains tapestry
work of dog wood blossoms and Is In
scribed with the unique line: "In the
fisherman s hut the loom and the wheel
are still busy."
The case of marvelously fine embroid
eries comes from the convent in New Or
leans, where ^he nuns are famous for
their handiwork. One of these specimens
Is an altar piece In pine apple cloth ap
pliqued with finest lace. The fabric is one
that Is very little made now, but in the
old southern days no gentle woman was
without her collection of pineapple hand
kerchiefs and stomachers. In the corner
of the room In the left the Arcadian wom
en have an exhibit of baskets which is
well worth Investigating. They are made
of a certain kind of cane and marsh grass
which grows nowhere except in the
sw'amps of Louisiana, and they are in
all sorts of pretty odd shapes, somewhat
resembling the baskets of the Mexicans
and Indians.
These primitive things, however, are
not all that the old southern state has to
show of woman's work. Mrs. Stewart, a
well-known New Orleans lace maker,
has on the walls an exquisite collection
of lace, round point, Valenciennes and
Irish point. The Sophie Newcome college
sends a very creditable exhibit from their
art department. The striking thing
about It Is that the subjects chosen are ull
peculiar to the land they come from.
Southern flowers, scenes and faces greet
the visitor in this place. There are heads
of happy faced negresses wrapped In
bright bandannas; the flowers of the
tropical south, the magnolia, Jessl
mlnes and bays, areshown, and
added to-this art collection are some fine
paintings of New Orleans artists, who
have made reputations. Kolb and Buch,
the painters of the famous Bayou Teche
scenes, have two fine canvass. Parilll,
the New Orleans Audubon, has several
still lifes. Gathered together in one big
frame are illustrations In black and white,
which Frances Jones did for Grace King’s
last novel; all these are Inimitable. She
has caught and Immortalized the easy
smile of the negro mammy and she has
given fhe characteristic pose and grace
ful Indolence of the Tigon Creole, and has
made the old market woman a living
presence, freighted with odors of onions
and bananas.
New’ Orleans has, more than any other
city In the south, this peculiar southern
Individuality, and the ladles in charge of
this room very sensibly concluded that
they could add nothing better for Its
adorning than this characteristic ex
hibit. One of the New Orleans commis
sioners said: "Knowing that our exhibit
would be next to New York, where all
the white and gold and new-old mahog
ony was to be, and -where there was to
be displayed no end of embroidery and
furniture, we concluded that it would be
'very foolish for us to attempt anything
In that line. So we brought that which
was Just as much a part of us as an or
ange blossom from our garden.” They
showed real wisdom In so doing, for the
room is the southern center of the build
ing.
The annex has the southern features
accentuated In two of Its departments.
One of these Is the South Carolina room
and the other the space which old Ma
con calls her own. The frieze about the
former room Is made of cotton, forming
a pretty pattern upon a blue background,
and an Interesting Idea is the arrange
ment of woman’s work, as illustrated by
old and modern methods. Above a cab
inet filled with fine embroideries and
painted china hangs a number of the
quaintest samples and tapestries, where
line ladies wearing Bky-scraper bonnets
and shortwasted frocks disport them
selves with lambs that have strayed an
atomically from the right i>ath. In these
also there are little girls and little boys
with very large heads and very long
panalets, their hands and arms out of
drawing, offering one another nosegays,
whose flowers never grew in heaven or on
earth. The funniest of the lot. perhaps,
Is one of the tender funeral mementoes
so valued of yore. In which a lady In a
very large hoop-skirt and very deep grief,
sits and weeps beneath a willow by. the
tomb of her husband. These were con
sidered choice things In the old days,
and were always hung beneath the pic
ture of the second husband.
The finest articles of woman's work
are to be found In the china paintings
and lace made by the nuns In Colum
bia, S. C., and an exhibit In pottery quitu
fine In Its way comes from the hands
of Indian women who form a settlement
In lower Carolina.
I wonder how many people know that
the first college In the World for women
was the Wesleyan Female college, found
ed at Macon, Ga., some fifty years ago,
and the first diploma ever issued to a
woman came Into the proud possession
of one Catherine Brewer, and Is now to
be found framed and hanging In a cher
ished corner of the Macon room. How
little did this quiet little southern girl.
In her quaint white frock and blue rib
bons, dream of her erudite successors
clt^l in cap and gown, and carrying In
their ambitious heads a mission liable to
develop into anything from bloomers to
the presidency!
Below the diploma stands a spinning
wheel with a wonderful history. It be
longed to one Peggy McNabb of Perry.
N. C.. whose husband fell in the year of
1812, and was the one piece of furniture
saved by her in a conflagration that al
most cost her her life. The story might
do for one of Joel Chandler Harris' Afri
can tales, for Brother Panther Instead of
Brother Wolf came to the hut of I his
Peggy McNabb and climbing stealthily
upon the roof tried to creep down the
chimney. Poor Peggy had no wood ip
the hut and so to keep out the beast she
was compelled to burn up every piece of
furniture In her pessesion except this
wheel. When morning came she aat
weeping at her loom, 'Whose whirr had
helped to frighten aw8y _thc hungry
beast—Illustrating that thrift w|ll keep
other animals .beside the wolf {fom the

Is the following Inscription: "The wjijel

X)lD-FASHIONED AGUE
"Compared With Chronic Malaria.
The regular old-timed, back-woods fe
ver and ague, also called chills and fever,
was bad enough In its day, but a far
worse disease to bear, somewhat like It,
Is known as chronic malaria. The regu
lar fever and ague would produce a dis
tinct chill, followed by fever and sweat
ing. Then the victim would have a rest
of one. two or three days to gain strength
and regain courage.
But not so with chronic malaria. Ev
ery day, morning, noon and night,
chronic malaria will tease and plague its
victim with miserable, indescribable,
cheeping rigors; nasty, exasperating cold
sweats, bitter taste, coated tongue, sal
low, dry skin, loss of appetite, confusion
of senses, heavy, stupid listlessness, and
a myriad of similar symptoms as Infernal
as they, are persistent. Not a day's In
termission nor an hour's cessation. Work
become a wearisome worry, study sick
ening and senseless, and play a prosy
impossibility.
The quinine treatment for chronic ma
laria is not of the least possible use. It
will cure the majority of cases of acute
malaria, but not the chronic. In fact,
quinine seems to aggravate rather than
relieve. Unless a thorough course of Pe
ru-na is taken the patient will seek in
vain for relief. The effect of Pe-ru-na is
pleasant, positive and permanent.

RELIGIOUS THOUGHT AND PROGRESS.
An Tpitone of the Sermons of the Week—Edi
ted by Will N. Clemons.
JB-—:
Mvjnioig^l geform.
Th^closing dec^d^ of the century will
be remembered as a period of municlr*’!
regeneration. Many a city in these United
States has met with a change of heart
recently, and the country will be all the
better for the next decade because of
this.—Rev. F. A. Warfield, Brockton,
Mass. • i.
Sunday Observance.
The liquor trade and the foreign pop
ulation are the foes of our .Sabbath, and
against them the American mnst be en
his guard. If a political party cannot
aw>ld defeat except by consenting to
a desecration of the Sabbath, then let it
meet defeat.—Rev. A. W. Hodder, Bap
tist, New Yorif City. ,■/„ .
Patriots.
iTtoe true .pair,tot is one who honors the
highest- type of virtue. The virtuous
manhood and a virtuous womanhood de
cide the character of the government.
The true, patriot will honor his coun
try's institutions. The true patriot will
honor the Sabbath as a day of rest and
worship.—David H. Skilling, Presbyte
rian, Allegheny, Pa.
Things Eternal.
Only the good Is lasting. God Is ever
lasting, because he is exalted goodness,
Justice, love and mercy, almighty and all
wise, and these qualities, of course, in a
much smaller degree in man are alone
eternal. Evil is not eternal, and therefore
man disposed to do evil will see his de
struction.—Rabbi M. Rosenslein. Hous
ton, Tex.
Bin.
Sin has five points—the love of sin, the
practice of sin, the guiit of sin, the state
of sin and the dominion of sin. Faith de
stroys the love of son, repentance the
practice of sin, remission the guilt of sin,
baptism the state of sin and the indwell
ing of the holy spirit the dominion of sin.
—Kev. W. T. Black, phicego, 111.
Mission Work.
Missions are worth to America all they
have cost, leaving out every estimate of
their value to foreign lands. They have
proved their value. To depreciate them is
to condemn the life and work of Jesus
Christ, to dishonor the heroes who in all
the Christian ages have followed in His
footsteps and to lower humanity.—Bev.
William T. Beale, Congregationalist,
Brockton, Mass.
Personality.
Men rally not around some funda
mental truth, but around some strong
personality. It was not the abstract
doctrine of state rights that died the
south, but the strong personality of John
C. Calhoun and John Randolph. In the
same way men array themselves under
their chosen loaders, who represent their
Ideas 'In a living and powerful person
ality.—Rev. W. Cl. Partridge. Baptist,
Scranton Pa.
. Riches and Poverty.
Some people think It is a sin to be rich.
There will be many rich men in heaven
as well as many in hell. The question
is, how did you get your riches and how
did you get your poverty and \vhat are
you doing with it?—Rev. Dr. Stuart,
evangelist, Winston, N. C.
Heroism.
The true hero may be brave; not afraid
of anything that stands between him and
duty. Not given -to counting the cost,
but prompt, in doing rtght. He must
speak out on occasion against wrong, re
gardless of risk or result, even when the
wrong doers are people in authority and
the wronged one Is a despised outcast of
another nation or another sect.—Rev. T.
T. Lloyd, Baptist. Philadelphia, Pa.
Superstition.
Madame Chance is an old ben who
hatches out every year an awful lot oif
eggs -poverty, bankruptcy, unhappiness,
gambling, divorces and suicides are some
of the chicks answering her cluck. We
praetijp hundreds of superstitions and
crankisms too silly to mention. Nonsense
leads on to non|sen§e. and imbecility
breeds imbecility, and no matter what
our failures or shortcomings, we are in
the hands of fate.—Rev. T. D. Talmage,
Presbyterian, Pittsburg, Pa.
Buioide.
The crime of suicide is nothing more
nor less than the outgrowth of that In
famous doctrine which teaches that
man's life, like that of the beast, ends
in the grave. One who is familiar with
the Bible knows that God has declared
against self-destruction, and that the
words of Holy Writ concerning the fate
of Judas are sufficient to prove that it is
contrary to divine law.—Rev. Dr. Brown.
Congregationalist, San Francisco, Cal.
Cuba.
It will be better for ail. for Spain, for
Cuba, for the South American republics,
for Mexico and for our own country,
better for the world that these long
continued, cruel and oppressive wars
should be brought to an end and that
Cuba become a republic. And by all the
sacred memories and associations of this
land; by our love of llljferty and justice,
the voice of "the people should so declare.
—Rev. Dr. Thomas, independent, Chica
go, 111.
Citizenship.
livery patriotic force should be utilized
to guarantee an equitable distribution of
municipal duty and privilege Too many
of the good things are dropping into the
wrong scoop of the scales. While some
are thrashing the tree others are gather
ing the chestnuts. The pay rolls of the
city employes should be an interesting
study to the tax-payers. Our advice is
to organize, energize and revolutionize.
Claim your right. Stand on your man
hood. Demand a hearing.—Rev. L. A.
Thlrlkeld, Methodist. Baltimore, Md.
Churoli Aristocracy.
The gulf between the masses and the
church is growing wider every hour.
There -is a steady decrease of communi
cants to be found in our pews. A very
small percentage of the people, and espe
cially workingmen, are regular church
attendants. The church- is greatly re
sponsible for this state of affairs. The
exclusiveness which has characterized
the church has been a drawback to It.
Workingmen and women are actually
driven from her door.—Rev. W. F. Dick
erman, New Haven. Conn.
Catholicism.
I was once in terror of Rome, but by
study I am convinced that the danger
Is slight and rapidly diminishing. Prot
estantism in the world is increasing in
membership twice as fast as Romanism.
1 will never utter a word, however, that
will kindle hosillity. Recognize all that
is Christian in the Roman church, cul
tivating the most cordial relations, co
operating in every possible way with
Romanists, I will strive to advance, not
hinder, God's evident design.—Rev. E. T
Root, Congregationalism Baltimore, Md.
Social Equality.
Men never were and never will be on
a universal footing of equality in the
social scale. The reason is obvious. Men
are not born with the same intellectual
or physical qualiti.es as all other men.
Some come Into the world possessed of
minds with great intellectual capacity,
while others are born almost Into Insan
ity. Some are created with bodies that
will develop unusual physical strength;
others again are weak and puny from
birth. There must always be classes
among men. There must always be the
rich and the poor.-Archbishop Jansens,
Catholic, at Richmond, Va.
Amerloa’s Needs.
The time Is at hand when America must
pass out into the larger view of charity
and Justice; when we must recognize our
mission as a nation. Questions of wealth,
of self-aggrandizement have so filled our
range of vision that the principle of giv
ing to the World an example of a nation
filled with the spirit of ministration has
been too poorly realized. Our literature
needs new inspiration, our political and
social economy needs a new saving force
In it; our religious life needs something
it does not possess.—Rev. W. F. Slocum,
Denver, Col.
Folitioal Platforms.
The platform of this church is neither
republican nor democratic, but It must
stand for good government regardless of
party. Jt$ YSiPS ?hall ><; hear4 Jn no
unmistakable sound tor the U'Vith and
light, for God and humanity. JPlatfofn)'
are m" de to stan^ upon EYeryplafiJl id
a political platform should be nailed
down by wise and honest met! and find
its solidity In Its righteousness. May the
day soon dawn wherf men shall stand
upon a platform when they stand by the
ballot box Insfead of w’alklng over the
■Rickety, rotten old floor of a party.—Rev.
Cortlandt Myers, Baptist, Brooklyn,
N. Y.
Heaven.
Heaven In the Bible Is used. In-more
than one sense. We read of the fowls
of the heaven, meaning the atmosphere;
• read of the lights or heaven, the stars of
heaven, meaning the ilrtnamept. TM'l
third heaven of the scriptures Is Heaven
111 Its subllmest sens*; It Is where God
dwells; It Is somewhere beyond this ma
terial universe; It is a, place where Uod
dwells In His Infinite and mighty person
ality; It Is where the saints will have
their “ternal home; where they will sing
forever the songs of the redeemed.—Rev.
M. Curnlck. Howell, Mass.
Good Wives.
The woman who has no higher ambi
tion than simply to be dragged up Into
society is Indeed a most pitiable crea
ture. What you want, young man, is a
■wife, not a toy to play with, a doll to be
dressed, an ornament to exhibit, but a
help-meet, not simply a belp-eat. Many
women today who were raised in the
kitchen, so to say, vainly imagine that
they make fine parlor ornaments. They
have an idea that they were made to be
looked at and often they are too lazy to
do anything else.—Rev. Morgan A. Pe
ters, Reformer church, York, Pa.
Dancing.
It is as natural for a healthy child to
dance as it is for a lamb to frolic In the
fields. It Is the natural expression of the
Joy and gladness of life. Every nation,
every people, has Its own native dances.
Dancing entered Into the religious wor
ship of ancient Hebrews as well as other
nations. There were pure dancers and
impure dancers accordingly as the wor
ship wasj>ure and impure. Our modern
dance Is “he social dance of our ances
tors, the dance on the village green or in
the woodland glades. It Is a social fes
tivity and within proper limits it is per
fectly unobjectionable. It Is only objec
tionable as it is abused and this Is true
of all good things.—Rev. Dr. Brundag",
Albany. N. Y.
Sunday Closing.
The law closing the saloon on Sunday
is no hardship on anyone except saloon
•keepers and drunkards. The state of New
• York will never pass a law providing for
'Sunday liquor selling. The republicans
are not going to open the saloons on Sun
• day. In their platform the republicans
: have declared that they would not pass
a law opening the saloons on Sunday,
and all honor be to the republican party
for its action in this regard. The demo
cratic party will promise to do anything,
but It doesn’t dare pass a law for Sunday
opening—It doesn't dare go against the
• Catholic churches in this regard.—Rev.
Thomas Dixon, Jr., New York City.
Music and Religion
The one thing about music is its har
..mony. the blending of melodious tones In J
rone harmonious whole, the bringing of
its tones under the natural law. We are
born for concord and for peace, to live
• not in discord, but In great harmony. Be
fore the sweet strains of Handel and
• Haydn were given to the world they were
in their souls. You often hear it said
that some men do not have an car for
musj(c, but there are few who can ll6len
to; the real music that comes from the
soul of genius without being moved. The
single strain of an Easter anthem has
saved a man from suicide.—Rev. R.
F. Holway, Episcopalian. Worcester,
Mass.
Theaters.
The theater as an institution is. in its
ownership and management, entirely
worldly in its character; that is, it is in
the hands of men who make no profes
sion of Christianity and who are con
fessedly opposed to all reart religion. The
managers of playhouses have no idea of
running them in the Interest of moral
ity. Though at times making high pre
tensions of a design to foster art and ele
vate the stage, yet the fact is they are
after the almighty dollar, and. Judged
by their fruits—the plays they put on the
boards—they propose to secure the coins
of the realm by catering to the most de
praved and vicious elements of human
nature.—Rev. W. C. Kinsey, Newark,
N. J.
Home Rule.
If "home rule for cities” is to give us
a continental Sunday in New York, a
Scotch Sunday in Brooklyn and a Cana
dian Sunday in Rochester and Buffalo,
why not, by parity of reasoning, one
definition of larceny and murder for
TTtlca and another in Syracuse; one law
of divorce for Albany and another for
Ogdensburg? I confess that I would
rather Intrust the destinies of New York
city to the yoemanry of the state of New
York than to leave It In the hands of a
constituency which Is said to contain a
compact body of 50.000 men who can be
counted upon to vote as the brewers and
distillers command.—Rev. William R.
Huntington, Episcopalian. New York
city.
SIMPLY WONDERFUL.
Wbat Jotn E, Logwood of Athens,
Ala., Has lo Say.
He Calls It a Health Restorer and
Recommends Its Use Most
Highly.
At no time since I commenced the use
of the Electropoise have I ever been
more convinced of Its virtues than I am
now. To dispense with Its use would be
to me as the cancelling of a life Insur
ance policy. My observation of its use
In treating la grippe Is simply wonderful.
One instance I will mention of the bene
ficial results of an old experienced M. D.
after a long attack of la grippe. It hav
ing baffled the skill of many of the promi
nent Mf D.'s. hejoecame convinced, so he
says, that he was growing worse all the
time, and was satisfied what was going
to be the final result. So, contrary to
the advice of his brother M. D.'s, he pro
cured an Electropoise, and by Its use
has been entirely restored to health.
He Is not only a sensible man, but rec
ognized as a strong man In his profes
sion. Many others of similar character 1
might mention that have come under
my observation, and in some instances
under my treatment; however, this one
is sufficient.
Referring again to this M. D., he often
gives drugs or medicines to his patients;
will say that he studiously avoids their
use on himself, always preferring the
Electropoise.
Trusting that you may continue deal
ing out this health-restorer, the Electro
poise, until it reaches all nations and
classes of mankind, I am, yours truly,
