As there are a number of Birmingham
women who are graduates of the famous
Lucy Cobb Institute of Athens, Ga., the
following extract from the Atlanta Con

"This week everybody Is astir at the
Lucy Cobb institute, all making ready
for Lucy Cobb day. Committees are at
work designing badges of blue and white;
teachers are arranging programmes; oth
ers are addressing cards of invitation;
Kom» are practicing and some are speech
making. so that the time outside of
school hours is filled with busy work.
"All connected with the school are
bending their best energies to make the
day a success. The Seaboard Air Line
has granted the very low rate of $1.15 to
the pupils, patrons and friends of the
Luey Cobb, with a limited ticket of ten
days. This low rate will induce hundreds
to go up at that time. It is expected that
Athens will be there en masse. This week
there will be sent out cards of Invitation
to the pupils and patrons of the Lucy
Cobb. The cards will read:
“ ‘Alumnae reunion—Luey Cobb Insti
tute—Auditorium hall, Friday morning,
November 29, at 11 o’clock. The honor
of your presence is requested.’
"No cards will be sent out in Athens,
but through the columns of the daily pa
pers the whole town will be invited.
“The 28th of November is university
day, and the 29th being Lucy Cobb day it
is hoped ami expected that the entire city
will pay these two noble institutions the
honor of attending tire exposition ill a
body.
“After the programme of exercises is
rendered in the auditorium the ladies of
the Lucy Cobb, the trustees and their
wives and the alumnae will receive the
friends and patrons of the school in the
assembly hall in the woman’s building.
Dainty refreshments will be served -lur
ing the day, and refreshment cards will
be distributed from the Lucy Cobb par
lors on the 28th and 29th by Miss Sarah
McBride, the charming graduate in
charge. Mrs. Lipscomb, the present
principal, and Miss Rutherford, the one
of former years, will go up this week for
the purpose of calling the Atlanta alum
nae together, to appoint committees and
to provide for every detail connected
(with the Lucy*C!Sbb day.
“It goes without saying that on this
day there will assemble in the hall of the
auditorium the largest number of pretty
maidens and handsome women that has
yet \jeen gathered together with a com
mon Interest and a loyal love."

From the Augusta Chronicle this item
of interest Is taken:
“One or ihe lovliest and certainly the
most artistic book I have ever seen was
•’Flowers From the Holy Land,” sent
by Hon. Thomas R. Gibson, United
States consul to Beirut, Syria. This
beautiful volume, though a personal gift
to his friend, is to be exhibited at the ex
position. In writing to his friend In re
ply to her request that he get, If possible,
something to represent the literary ef
forts of the Syrian women, Mr. Gibson
says: ’This week I have managed to get
hold of one book written by a Syrian wo
man, a Very attra6tlve and highly es
teemed young lady, and I send It by thla
mail. You will hardly be able to read
the volume yet awhile, and I fear It will
not be appreciated generally. Still Its
presence will show that even the women
In the orient are beginning to take ad
vantage of long-delayed opportunities
and take their places alongside their
more favored American sisters. The
young lady and her whole family admire
Anjerica. She speaks English fluently,
and her photograph, which I also take
pleasure In sending you, will show that
she Is the type of the oriental beauty.
She is the editor of a leading newspaper
of Beirut (we have fifteen newspapers
here) and her aunt has also written a
little book, which I hope to be able to
send you.' ”

KNIGHTS OF LABOR
Declare in Favor of Recognizing the Cubans
as Beligerents.
Washington, Nov. 18.—The general as
sembly of the Knights of Labor today
unanimously passed the following reso
lutions:
Whereas, The Cubans are at present
engaged In a struggle to achieve their
independence against the minions of an
alien and tyrannical government, and.
Whereas, The development of the con
test has made it obvious that the nation’s
forces cannot possibly be subdued In any
reasonable time, and a further continua
tion of the present status will only tend
to deepen the general misery all over the
island of Cuba; and,
Whereas, We .the citizens of the fore
most republic In the world, should lit
least be willing to see that all men fight
ing for the liberty of the land of their
nativity and their own deliverance from
the bondage of an oppressor, should
have a fair and equal chance to meet
their opponents in open warfare; there
fore, be It
Resolved, That the general assembly
of the Knights of Labor, representing
every section of the country, and all con
ditions of humanity, does hereby declare
in favor of the recognition of the Cubans
as belligerents.
The constitution was so amended as to
exclude gamblers, lawyers, bankers and
brokers, as at present, and also to ex
clude all employes engaged in the manu
facture of or dealers in intoxicating
liquors, but permitting each local as
sembly to decide for itself whether it will
admit barkeepers, waiters, etc., engaged
temporarily in the work of dispensing
liquors, but having no connection with
the place where employed as proper.

ence; this puts on healthy flesh not the fat
of cod liver oil and its filthy compounds.
It rouses every organ of the body to ac
tivity, purifies, enriches and vitalizes
the blood so that the body feels refreshed
and strengthened. If you are too thin, too
weak, too nervous, it may be that the food
assimilation is at fault. A certain amount
of bile is necessary for the reception of the
fat foods in the blood. Too often the liver
holds back this element which would help
digestion. Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical
Discovery stimulates, tones up and invig
orates the liver, nourishes the blood, and
the muscles, stomach and nerves get the
rich blood they require.
