Of course, we found the usual quota of Hoosiers in these libraries. At Pratt. Institute, Brooklyn, we found Miss Mary W. Plummer, director- of the 'Library School. Miss Plummer hails - from Richmond, Ind., and has the honor of being the head of the most celebrated library school in the United States.

'PUEpED For Benefit of Women who Suffer from Female Ills Minneapolis, Minn." I was a great sufferer from female troubles which causea a weasness and broken down condition of the system.

Mis3 Juliet Swayne of Richmond, as "Resigna tion," shared the comedy honors of the production with George Schmidt as "Hatebad Higgins." Miss Swayne is irresistibly funny and kept the audi ence in a roar all the time she was on the stage. Mr. Schmidt is a New Castle boy and all expected him to make good, because they knew he could do it. . The parts of "John Alden and "Miles Standish" were sung by Ira Law and Allen Grimes, both of Terre Haute, who appeared in Prof. Taylor's produc tion when It was given there.

HEAT WILL BE IN PARTIAL SHADOW MUCH INTEREST. Washington, May 31. Two interest ing spectacles in the astronomical world will occur during the coming month. These events will be eclipses of the moon and the sun, the former on June 3 and the latter on June 17. The moon will rise totally eclipsed and its totality will last about an hour, while the sun will only be in totality near the North Pole. Of chief interest will be the lunar eclipse, which will be -visible over about half the earth.- On June 3 the moon will emerge from the total phase at 9 o'clock, East ern standard time, and will leave the shadow at 10:14 p. m. It continues in the penumbra or partial shadow till 11:21 o'clock, p. m., but this latter phase is not an interesting one. Far ther west the moon will rise later and emerge from the shadow at 8 o'clock, central standard time. According to the astronomers at the Naval Observatory here the next re currence of the sun's eclipse will be one which will increase in magnitude at every return during the eighteen year period until a maximum i3 reached, after which it will decrease. The solar eclipse, which occurs on De cember 12 next near the South Pole, is decreasing periodically, and will short ly disappear from the earth's surface. The next eclipse of the sun which will be observed in totality in this country will occur June S, 1018, and will be vis ible from Oregon to "Florida. How Ke Knew.

When Mrs. John Quincy Adams took the reins of the Washington social life as mistress of the White House, she was accepted as a natural leader, and her wit and personality, which had been acquired in foreign courts, made her a general favorite. Mrs. Adams was the last of the wo men of the revolution, for the presi dents which followed here were the product of a different period of histo ry, and their wives showed other in Wonderful Nerve is Shown by a Wounded Soldier . in Civil War One day an army surgeon was "dress ing the wountl of a soldier w!. had been shot la the neck ne;ir the carotid artery.

In spite of Mrs. Adams's general adap tability to the social surroundings and her great enjoyment of its functions, still her greatest desire was to be done with the responsibilities of the White House and retire with her husband to a quiet life. Mrs. Adams was very fond of dress, and her quaint costumes, which today seem odd, were qufte the dictator of fashions in the Washington social life. way, and just as quickly the 6urgeon thrust his finger into the hole to stop the flow.

Woman's World SCHOOL FOR MOTHERS. An Institution Which Gives Needed Instruction to Young Wives. A train out of the Grand Central tattoo. New York city, for Hartsd&Ie recently carried some interesting pas senger. They were tenement bouse mothers, some of them scarcely more than girls, and each had a two-weeks-old baby In her arms. Tbey weqe for the most part factory girls who bad jumped from the workroom into mar riage and knew little about taking care of babiesv The faces of the bable were white and wan. Occasionally children of two. three or maybe four years tagged at the heels of the moth er. Had you asked the women where they were going they would have said To school," not to a school like tbote Dear their city homes to which the older children go, but to a school for tenement mothers which George H. F. Schrader has started up among the bills of Hartsdale. New York state. It Is called Caroline Best, in memory of Mr. Schrader's mother. It is not only a sanitarium where young mothers can go to rest and re cuperate; it is also a school where the Ignorance that kills some o.000 new born babies each year in th New York tenements can be overcome by knowledge of a scientific sort. It was two years ago that a cottage was se cured among the hills of Hartsdale for the establishment of Caroline Rest. C4BOUX1 BUT SAXTTASnW. , Here some ten young mothers were domiciled and cared for. Amid health ful surroundings tbey grew well and strong again, and their babies thrived. Now the cottage has been replaced by a picturesque English structure which accommodates thirty . mothers and their children. There Is a wide veranda where the convalescing moth ers may sit beside the big clothes bas ket a in which, comfortable sod happy, the babies rest. As you enter the houpe . there Is a reception hall In which on dull days, before a cheerful fire In the big fireplace, the mothers can sit. A sun parlor is another fea ture of the place, and there Is a nursery for. the older children. It is the schooling which these jnoth ers get that is to help tbem most. There Is a well defined course followed by the pupils, a curriculum as care fully planned as that of a normal col lege. On the day a mother arrives with her baby she is simply allowed to rest and adjust herself to her new sur roundings. The next morning. If she Is able, she gets her first lesson, which consists of bow to wash the baby. "You must remember," explained the nrtrw in charge, "that many of the mothers who come here are little more than girls themselves and have gone right from the factory into their own bome and motherhood with no more preparation than a child. One young mother I have here now Is only four teen, and you can imagine bow much be knows about bringing up ber child. "The first thing the mother is taught Is the use of the bathtub and basin. It seems almost Incredible that It should be necessary to teach this, but you know in many of the tenements the use of the tub Is not considered necessary. "After learning bow to wash the bathtub and other utensils the mother Is taught to bathe and dress the baby nnder supervision. She is instructed In the care of the Icebox in which tbe milk is kept and sees how nil the dishes used to prepare the baby's food must be sterilized. Freparing the bar ley mixtures and food comes next It happens very frequently that a young mother cannot come to Caroline Rest unless she brings some of tbe younger childrea with her. - So hese. tbe runabouts, as tbey are called, are also looked over, and if any trouble exists it is used as an object leson for the mother, so that she may avoid a repetition of It in the l:ttle new baby she brought with her. -One of the 'matures of Carc"m F.est Is that the time of tbe motber'f eta; is unlimited. She can remair two, three or six weeks, as the need mty be. and some have remained threr months."
