Hall, Nineteenth street, between Tenth and Eleventh avenues, South High lands. Telephone 988.) The effort being made by Mayor Van Hoose to secure the national flag for our public school buildings has a much great er significance, a more far-reaching im portance than has perhaps been attached to it by the citizens of Birmingham. Such things, apparently small In themselves, ■will have a serious bearing upon the prin ciples and politics of the rising genera tion. The laws of the near future are to be formulated by the boys who are now quietly learning their lessons in tho school rooms which cover this fair land of ours. The principles of the next gen eration will be Influenced and largely controlled by the little maidens who now carry every morning their books and lunch baskets along our streets and greet you with sunny smiles and happy, care free faces. The lessons now learned by these same boys and girls will in future years be the constitutions of our states. No man or woman holds greater power for good or evil than he or she who daily directs the intelligence of the youth of America, and an Influence which is sim fdy negative can almost be counted on he side of evil. He who writes the songs of a nation is Insignificant compared with him who teaches the children of his coun try. Every teacher has an opportunity to reach the future, to connect the pres ent with the coming years if he employs, as he should, the tremendous forces at his command. And this bringing to the at tention of our children the grandeur of our republic, the greatness of our people and the vast possibilities of our future by the flying of our national flag over the school houses is eminently correct and patriotic. It is another step in the direc tion of “Americanism," and everything that tends thereto should be fostered and encouraged. This Is rendered the more needful because of our lax immigration laws and the ease with which naturali zation papers are secured. According to the present laws of our country the for eigner has largely the advantage of the young men who are native Americans, in that a brief season of residence fits the former—no matter how ignorant or vicious-»for the right of suffrage, while It requires twenty-one years of training and education to entitle the latter to the privilege of the ballot. The trend of public opinion Is towards a radical change In this faulty arranger ment. The children of our country should be taught not only the funda mental principles of our government, but the grand doctrine of “American ism.” and all efforts In that direction should be encouraged by the parents of our future law-makers. In no section of the United States Is this feeling stronger than in the south, and the explanation is a simple one. Living as we do, remote from the great seaports, from the cities which receive the thousands of foreign ers who crowd upon our shores, the origi nal principles which are embodied in the constitution have been unchanged in their interpretation by a people whose Anglo-Saxon blood has not been mixed and diluted with other races. We are a law-abiding, God-fearing and conserva tive people, and we shall so continue as long as we hold uppermost thla grand doctrine of “Americanism." The interest In the independence or Cuba grows apace with the people of the United States. The stories that come to us of Spanish Intolerance and despotism have awakened a general feeling of in dignation throughout the country, and especially In the south. The relations existing between the southern states and Cuba have always been so close and friendly that the desire for Cuban inde pendence Is almost universal. In various cities of the country clubs of women are being formed by Cubans and their sym pathizers, which have for their object the aiding of the Insurgents in every way possible for women to do. A society In New York called "Daughters of Cuba” has Issued this address to the women of the United States: “Sisters: The time has come for all daughters of America to unite in helping our brothers In their unequal struggles. The world knows what Spanish domination Is. The darkest pages of the history of humanity are those which refer to atrocities com mitted by Spaniards wherever they own lands. The Netherlands, Portugal, Mex ico, Italy, Peru and the greater part of the American continent have suffered under their Intolerable yoke, and all these countries have succeeded In gain ing their independence. Cuba and Porto Hlco are the only ones not governed by themselves, but it is not Cuba's fault; it Is the fault of the countries that help Spain to maintain Cuba in slavery. "Since ISIS Cubans have been trying to gain their independence. During this time there has not been a day of rest in Cuba Since 1818 the most talented Cu bans have been banished from the Island for their talent and patriotism. Many have been sentenced to death- J.D Puerto Piinrlpe in 1826 fell the first victims of liberty, and from that day to the present the Spaniards have not pardoned any Cu ban who hqs tried t$ obtain hifi liberty. The letters that we -ecelve from all parts of the world offering aid and sympathy prove that our cause Is Just. The prin ciples that fill Cuba with blood today are the same your fathers had In their strug gle for independence, and the Spaniards of today are the same ferocious men of that time. It Is publicly announced that Spain has pardoned all convicts In Cuba and other prisoners on condition that they Bhall fight against the Cuban pa triots. These convicts are already butch ering Cubans without regard to sex or age. We Cuban ladies in exile from home have Joined ourselves together In a char itable society called Daughters of Cuba, with the object of sending medicines and necessities to our sick and wounded of the Cuban war. Sisters of America, come to us; we appeal to you to help us and aid us in cneadlhg sympathy and raising funds to enable us to send medicines and necessaries to the hospitals of the patri otic army. We have decided, with this object in view, to hold a fair during the first week in December in Masonic tem ple, Twenty-third street and Sixth ave nue, New York. And. above all, let those who have fathers, brothers, sons or hus bands ask them for sympathy and beg of them to petition the president of the United States for the recognition of the belligerent rights of the Cubans. 'When this is granted the war will be over, and we Cubans in exile and the Cubans in the whole island of Cuba will join us in their thanks and ask the blessing of Ood on you and yours.” My newspaper experience has been singularly fortunate in my eighteen months of regular service, with a very exceptions, I have met only encourage ment and generous consideration from friends, acquaintances and even strang ers, that have proven a constant Inspira tion to higher endeavor. No woman could be more grateful for these kindly evidences than I am, and no woman could more thoroughly appreciate than I do the encouraging words spoken and writ ten to me by true men and women, whose friendship I claim. But there a.re clouds in every sky, as you and X have reason to know, and one of these clouds cast an ugly shadow across my way a few days ago in the form of an anonymous communication. Some one was so solic itous for the education of myself and the masses that he or she cut out my col umns of last Sunday, wrote upon them thrilling marginal notes, correcting my faulty grammar and suggesting that while I was mailing an effort to elevate the standard of excellence and good man ners in clubs, I should also raise my owit standard of grammatical excellence. This suggestion of ^py anonymous corre spondent certainly emphasizes the cor rectness of my poslton in the premises, and indicates that there may have crept into some club some man or some woman who needs not only elevating, but a weeding out entirely, for no one is en titled to membership in a respectable organization of any kind who could be guilty of such an act of cowardly imper tinence as the sending of an anonymous communication to man or woman. Such a deed taboos the sender from all furthei' ngard of respectable people. Belonging, as I do, to a class of women who are in terested in the progress and questions of our time, like them I do not claim per fection in any line, grammatical or other wise, and I do not resent proper instruc tion, properly given, but I demand that my instructor shall allow his or her petr s uiality to be known, so that the motives which actuate this philanthropist shall tie Justly ■estimated. As the corrections sent me were some of them entirely faulty and imperfect, there seems to have been absolutely no excuse for such a communication (a communication which brands the sender as a miserable coward) but an unadulterated malice, which was bnrp la a. warped and shriveled soul. Another such anonymous article will ne cessitate my publishing the name of the sender, which, while not signed, is not difficult to discover. ^ ^ Miss Clyde Berry, who has been the guest for several weeks of Mrs. Chad wick at the Eagle hotel, has returned to her home at Memphis, Tenn. Miss Berry wsis the recipient of much social atten-. tion during her vlslt^ to Birmingham. Miss Eloise Johnston of New York is visiting her cousin, Miss Lizzie Hatton, on Eighth avenue and Nineteenth street. Mrs. Wilmer Beard left Friday night for Louisville, K„ where she will spend a month with relatives and friends. The Nineteenth Century club was charmingly entertained on Wednesday afternoon by Miss Margaret Smith, Nine teenth street, South Highlands.

The subjeQt chosin by Mrs. Miller for heT lecture U “Dress for Health and Beauty,” which will be appropriately illustrated by the lecturer. Mrs. Miller will doubtless be greeted by an overflowl^Mf audience because of the interest which attaches to her own personality and also because of the two noble organizations to be benefited by the receipts. • • • The members of the Cadmean circle were the guests of Mrs. John M. Martin on Friday afternoon. Mrs. James A. Go ing read a paper upon "John Calvin,” which was followed by an open discus sion of the Venezuelan question, the co lonial organizations and the Cubanjnguf rectlon. Thedlecugalona ’yere led by Mbs Allen, Mrs. W. B. Lovell, Mrs. J. Morgan Smith, Mrs. Thomas D. Parke and Mre. S. D. Weakley. During the afternoon Miss Allen, literary leader, made a moat interesting talk upon pronunciation, dur ing which she took the position held by all V thoroughly educated persans, namely, that exaggerations and affectations of pronunciation are wholly incorrect and at variance with the speech of the b-'st scholars of the century. During her so journ abroad list summer and the sum mer previous Miss Allen had the good fortune to hear several of the most dis tinguished preachers of our time, among them Dean Bradley, Canon Farrar, Canon TroutbecJt and the bishop of Dur ham, all of whom spoke with nlmost the same accent as that of cultivated south erners and Bostonians. After the serv ing of dainty and delightful refreshments the Cadmean circle adjourned to mr:t next Friday afternoon with Mrs. John C. Henley on Fifth avenue. Mr. Ed Smith and Mr. Henry Bank head are In the city enjoying a few days’ vacation. They will return to Tusltaloosa early In the week.

The Thursday Evening Euchre club was charmingly entertained at its first meeting by Mr. and Mrs. Harry Cofftn. There were five tables of players. Sev eral members made the same highest eeore, but on a cut the prize, a beautiful sugar bowl and pitcher In green and gold, was won by Hon. A. G. Smith. Af ter the serving of tempting refreshments the club adjourned to meet next Thurs day evening with Dr. and Mrs. L. G. Woodson. * * • The noble women who have charge of the Mercy Home are in need of a few very necessary articles, window shades and a wardrobe, and, perhaps, some of our good people can supply this want. The home is accomplishing a world of good in a quiet, noiseless way, and It is entirely inadequate to the demands made upon it by helpless women and children. There are many children now at the Mercy Home, besides a number of women who have no other place of refuge in this busy world of ours. Every day ap plicants are turned from its doors, sim ply because there Is not room for thejn inside. Will not some good man or woman donate to this worthy charity the much needed wardrobe and window shades? • * • Mr. and Mrs. G. M.

She has studied for two win ters in New York under eminent teach ers, and was previous to that a pupil of Miss Averett, now Mrs. Rivers, of Pu laski, Tenn. Miss Sharpe’s touch Is both light and brilliant and a future of great promise Is before her in the musical world. After the recital Mr. Parish’s copies of Millet's "Gleaners” and Leon Bely’s "Caraven Crossing the Desert” will be exhibited, boxed and lighted, af ter the manner of the exhibitions of noted pictures held at the north.

Moody Is preaching dally to Immense congregations In Atlanta, and many are turned from the tabernacle doors because of their Inability to secure seats. As usual, he Is attracting multi tudes with his earnestness and magnet ism and his comprehension of the needs (■e s'nful humanity. He is preaching with a power and a devotion to his work which has perhaps not an equal at the present time in the religious world. All the neighboring towns are sending repre sentatives to Atlanta to listen to this earnest, Godly man. Is there any possi bility of Inducing Mr. Moody to come to Birmingham after he completes his en gagement in Atlanta? • * • The two literary societies of the Pol lock-Stephens Institute, the Hlppocre ni-an and Pierian, have again organized for their winter work.
