They hive taken apartments at the Ainsley. A pretty wedding took place yes terday afternoon in St. Boniface's Church on Golden Gate avenue, when Charles Aregger and Miss Regina Roh rer were united in the presence of a small party of friends and relatives. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Father Maximillian Neumann. The bride, who is a native of Switzer land, is a tall and stately brunette, and .she was very attractive in her nuptial gown of sheer lace over chrt fon and silk.- She wore a flowing tulle veil, and carried lilies of the valley. Miss Josephine Rohrer, a. sister of the bride, handsomely gowned, served as bridesmaid. She carried a shower bouquet of marguerites. David Areg ger was best man. After the -marriage a banquet was served at a downtown restaurant to a large number of invited guests. The couple took a late train for the south on their honeymoon. The groom has been In business in this city for sev eral years. The event was the culmin ation of a romance that began in Switzerland when the bride was but sixteen years of age. WEDDINGS. The faithful in every age have invoked the intercession of the saints, and if their prayers have not been answered always they have been answered frequently when It was for their good. Honor the eaints by visiting their shrines, and by their shrines I mean their tombs, or churches bearing 1 their names and containing their relics. Some three years ago I visited the city of Apt. in Southeastern France, where we are told by the Bollandists. the Jesuit writers, that the body of St. Ann is pre served. Accordtns to them, the sacred re mains were brought frorft Jerusalem to the Roman city of Apta Julia by Lazarus, Mary Mardalen. Martha and others. They were committed to the charge of Bishop Auspicious, a disciple of St. Peter. During the persecu tions this sacred deposit was hidden in the crypt of the church. It was discovered anew by Charlemagne, as we learn from a letter from him to Pope Adrian, as well as the reply which the Pontiff wrote to the Emperor. God has worked wonders through the relics of the saints. In the fourth book of Kings we read of a dead man who was restored to life by touching the dead body, of a prophet. A wo man was cured of disease by touching the gar ment of the Savior. Touch and have faith and your faith will make you whole. Invoke the intercession of the saints constantly, for by so doing you will not only be benefltting your selves, but you will be obeying the command of the apostle, "Render honor to whom honor Is due." • We can honor the saints by making them intercession : by visiting their shiines, and by venerating their relics. We invoke the inter cession cf the saints because they see hore and assist us in heaven. In the parable of the lost sheep our Savior declares that the angels rejoice over the conversion of the sin ner, but they could not so rejoice if they did not witness the operation of grace In his soul, and his change of heart and conduct. And If they know what passes in his heart and soul they can hear our prayers, because we utter them with our lips and waft them heavenward. What we *ay of the angels is applicable to the saints, for the Lord has declared that "the saints are as the angels of God in heav en." St. Augustine, held and practiced the belief that the Faints see and hear us, as is evident from his apostrophe to St. Paul: "You now reicn with Christ, together with him whom ye stoned, St. Stephen. You both see and hear this, my discourse. I desire you both to Dray for us." * ¦ ACitrdine to the apostle, we should render honor to whom honor is due. Among thusu whom we should honor are the saints and ser vants of God. They have been honored by itui! lymself. because he has bestowed upon them his grace most abundantly and makes them the instruments of his power in working wonders. The church honors them, for she has Inscribed their names upon her calendar. She places their relics upon her altars and she celebrates their feasts. subject of "The Honor of the Saints." This is the nones, or nine days' devo tion in honor of St. Ann, the mother of the Virgin Mary. These special services will terminate to-morrow evening, which is the feast of St. Ann. The ser mon on that occasion will be preached in St. Francis by Rev. Robert F. Ses non of Sacred Heart Church. . , Father Caraher spoke as follows, tak ing this passage from Romans, xiii:7, as his text: "Render, therefore, to all their dues, tribute to whom tribute is due. custom to whom cus tom is due. fear to whum iear. honor to whom honor." .

So that while the year books would i»tm to indicate its work began without and worked inward, in reality it took tbe same course of all club life — from the center of self The Chicago Woiraa'a dub. now grown to full ctaturo aad m the pride of maturity, was organized by twenty-one women twenty-eight >c_ra ago the 17th of February. Its declared clject was: During the summer months, when i the clubrooms are in the custody of janitors and maids, inspection intb the lives of other clubs — clubs beyond our physical vision— is attracting the at tention of progressive clubwomen. For, however clever our organizations may be — and many of them are very clever and broad and cultivating — there's al ways room for expansion. Among the clubs that attracted the greatest amount of attention at the late biennial (this sounds funereal, but the meet wasn't— not a bit of it) v.as the Chicago Woman's Club. This organization seems to me to be one of the broadest and cleverest in America. Therefore I beg to outline briefly its principles, its activities and a few of 'its results— even if it be a far cry from home. And in quoting from an article in "The Club Woman," pre pared by Mrs. G. W. Plummer, let me prefaca the quotation by stating that California really has no apologies to n.^ke to Illinois, or any other State, for that matter, for the Quality of our '..omen's clubs, and the women who compose them. But an interchange of ideas is conducive to healthy growth — hence the Chicago Woman's Club, to wit: By the conservatism and sincerity of its work, the Chicago Woman's Club has gained the respect and confidence of the citizens of Chicago. Its aid is sought and its appeals always meet a prompt response. It has a membership now of a thousand, drawn from every walk of life, of varying creeds, nationalities, even races. It has grown mentally and spiritually as well as numeri cally, albeit, not without its "growing pair.s." It i* a far cry from the day when it debated whether it were wise to .even discuss suf frage in executive session 1> the crucial hour when it travailed In the decision as to whether its motto was a pretty fancy or a li«ng prin ciple. It has worked and faltered, has failed and succeeded, stumbled and girded Itself anew to fresh endeavor. Nowhere is there another such organization — thoroughly demo cratic, wholly unique: women of wealth, cul ture and high social position banded with those less fortunate in a worldly sense, hon oring only ability, high Ideals and noble lives. ¦Women who. without that common ground of the Woman's Club, would j never know each other here, weld hearts in a life-long friend ship. Settlement worker and leader oC society. Jew' and Gentile, black and white, rich and poor alike labor together for the good of men and.' therefore, to the glory of God. Many of the members of the club are busi ness women: teachers, physicians, lawyers, etc. and practically debarred from hearing the papers, lectures and muslcalea which are given" to the club on Wednesday afternoons. For their sake, and that of other women, who. on account of a business life, have little leisure during the week the club decided several years aro to open Its door* on Sunday after noons and to have repeated there the best of the club's programme*, with such additions or changes as might seem best. The result has been most satisfactory. The rooms have been taxed to thfir capacity with a most interested and interesting audience. Many of the club members declare th«?se meetings to be the best part of the club work. Now, fellow-clubwomen, what do you think of these achievements? If any of you are wedded to grumpy men who sneer at "women's clubs," just tell them a few of these things that Chicago — even male Chicago — owns up to. It may, if their minds be not hermetically sealed, start a new thought into life. It wis through the philosophy and science department that Professor Breasted went to Egypt for exploration purposes, and the results Of his labors the department presented to the Field Museum of Chicago. In addition to the public work, study classes are carried on by the various departments for the benefit *f all members of the club, and literary and musical as well as practical pro grammes are given bi-monthly. The income of the club is derived from a yearly due of $12 and an Initiation fee of $25. It expends about $700<) yearly for 'rent, and after paying the running expenses incident to such a club, the remainder goes mainly to in crease and maintain its activities. It puts by little for the proverbial "rainy day," and as it is its policy not to glv* fetes or pntertaln m»r.ts to raise money, it dives deep into indi vidual pockets and attracts from outside source? when the call for funds for some new enterprise is imperative. (Al?_» ncte this, ladtes.) The art and literary department not only has study classes in art, literature and music, but engages in reform and philanthropic work alcng Its lines; a«. witness, the establish ment cf a scholarship of $1500 in the Art In- Mitute to be competed for by the seniors in the city high schools; the giving of exhibi tions of the pictures of local artists, the pur chase for the clubrooms of several valuable works of art, the establishment of the small park system in the city, and finally, the mu ral decoration of an audience-room in the McKinley High School, the latter involving an expenditure of thousands of dollars. In UK the financial depression in Chicago necessitated the raising of large sums to re lieve distress among the unemployed. The Woman's Club sent out a call to the other and similar women's organizations of the city and together they established nine workrooms, where sewinf? was Riven to women who applied in order that they might support their fami lies. Twenty thousand dollars was paid out In this way, distress avoided and the self-re spect of the recipient preserved. From this beginning: grew the Model Lodg inc-hou!>e, 'which furnishes temporary lodging at the small price cf 15 cents a night. Falling even this pittance, the lodger may "work out" the amount. The plan has been very success ful and the work is carried on as the "emer gency work" by a number of women's clubs working- together. Many societies have been bcrn in the club and gone out Into the world to battle valiantly and successfully: The Protective Agency for Women and Children, a society which gives legal aid and moral support to wronged women and children; the Physiological Institute, which opened courses of weekly lectures for Instruction of working women In the princi ples of hygiene and sanitary / science; the Mu nicipal Order League, now merged into the Civic Federation; the Household Economics, the Society for Correct Dress, the Political Equality League, whose object is to promote the ttudy of political science and to foster and extend political rights and privileges of wo men; the Public School Art Association, which places good casts and pictures in public schools, secures harmonious coloring on walls, blackboards, etc.; the School Children's Aid Society, now If teen years old, which dis penses from $701*0 to $00CO a year in keeping destitute children clothed in order that they may attend school. that period there have been two. Two women a* assistant superintendents owe their posi tions also to the same influence largely, and the election of women as trustees of the State University at Champaign. 111., is directly due to work done In the club. Another of the good works in which the club took an active Interest was /the Glenwood School, an Industrial school for boys. It raised $4i>,U0O lor this purpose and one of the buildings bears its:, name in commemoration of this fact. BY LAURA BRIDE POWERS.

FUR REMODELING A SPECIALTY FAIR FOLKS Don't Blame Nature, but Investigate. Many claim they are nervous "by nature" when it is really only because they are slaves to the coffee or tea habit, and this is easily proved by cut- tins out the coffee or tea for 10 days and using well boiled Postum Food Coffee instead — then comes the change. "I seemed endowed by nature with a nervous constitution," says a lady of Knoxville, Tenn., "and although I felt tea and coffee were bad for me the force of habit was so strong I Just couldn't give them up. "Someone suggested that I try cereaK coffee, but I remembered what insipid drinks we used under that name dur- ing the Civil War and so without ever looking into the subject or realizing v.hat progress science has made in this direction I just wouldn't give Postum a trial until finally the W. C. T. U. in our city started an exchange where there Tver° so many calls for Postum It was served regularly and many were induced to try it. myself among the number. How delighted I was to find it so agreeable, delicious and satisfj'- ing. As I had suffered from nervous prostration a change from tea and cof- fee was imperative, but all these troubles disappeared after I had used the Postum faithfully for a few weeks. "A sister and a son-in-law were con- verted to Postum at the same time and now we all enjoy it as well as we ever did coffee, but instead of making us nervous like coffee we enjoy steady nerves, sleei> «ound and are in every way better &>r the change." Name given by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich. \ * This lady found what she thought was natural nervousness was only due to an acquired taste for coffee that is to some people a sure destroyer of rerves and heaTth. Like her, anyone who cuts off coffee altogether and uses well boiled Postum In Its place will be greatly benefited after a few days and the return to health is a Joyful Journey. There's a reason.
