Truth. we form a committee and visit her, and if she is all right we vote on her at our next meeting. If she is elected Bhe receives notification, and once ac cepted we could not turn her out, ror we know all about her before she comes In. So we can't quarrel, and then our president is awful smart. She takes all the prizes at school, and she knows a good deal about clubs. That this society of children nas ac complished much has been seen from its work In its own quarters, bixty persons were cared for during the severe cold of laHt winter, and money realized from an entertainment re cently given was divided equally among the members, and devoted to the noor whom each member visits, and for whom provision Is made. Babies have been clothed and milk has found its way to hungry little ones, while coal and wood have warmed many desolate homes. Tho method employed by this club for the relief of the poor is most simple. The little president said: "Every member knows of some per son she can help. Often we have more applications for assistance than It Is possible for us to attend to, and we give to those whom we know best. What is left Is distributed to others. "We try to divide our money equally among ourselves, though In cases of great distress we give more to any one who knows of a special case that needs more. .Each member is required to render an exact account cf her dona tions. A year ago, when we had six teen members only, we made C0 on our first entertainment. It happened that the division was equal, and each person relieved received $10. At our last entertainment we cleared $100, and we divided It as we thought best, after taking the vote of the club." As soon as It can be arranged, the TrogresBlve Social club will entertain tbemeclvcs and a very few friends at a Kaffee-Klatscb as a sort of reward for their labors. At their last reception the club adopted a uniform, which was hailed with delight by each member Individually, for, strange to say. It was becoming to all. It Is a simple cos tume of light blue, the skirt reaching to tbe knees, with a blouse, finished with wide sailor collar and cuffs of white, a scarf of white cashmere tied around the waist and white shces. The officers wear silver medals, which vary but little from thoso worn by the other members. The regular meetings are held on Saturday evenings, and the business Is transacted In a way that would do credit to othe" organizations. Some times stories are told or read and en tertainment of some kind is contri buted by a member. The financial secretary. Flora Mlnton. is n ty the club a. pianist of rare ability, Episcopal form of faith by baptism, and throughout his life took an active part as a vestryman of that church. But even if he was ever confirmed in its faith there is no reliable evidence that he ever took communion with It or with any other church. In short, It seems that the very honesty and Integrity of the man caused him to refrain from the more spiritual forms of activity In the church. Possibly his mind, as have the minds of many men of high moral character, followed the irrational bent of Inseparably associating principles and professions, and so looked askant at creeds and dogmas, where the Uvea of their foremost advocates gave the He to the profession of tho lips. It is notable, however, that as time went on, the occasional Indifference of his youth ful days gave place to a respectful, even If not devout, attitude with reference to religious matters. In a feeling of spiritual indifference to the church it U not surprising that, neglecting spiritual reasons, he wrote, as a Virginia colonel: 'The want of a chaplain does reflect dis honor upon the regiment, as all other officers are allowed.' And when he was urged to have public prayers In camp, so as to excite tho curiosity and foster the conversion of the Indians, he ignored the recommendation. As to the Sabbath he conformed to the local Vir ginia habits. After service tho day was largely given to riding, visiting, din ing, and to those Innocent amusement3 and gatherings that many then be lieved to be essential safeguards of a community. From his childhood he traveled on Sunday whenever occasion required. He considered it proper for his negroes to fish, and on that day made at least one contract. During his official bucy life Sunday was largely given to his home correspondence, be ine as he says, the most convenient day In which to spare time rrom nis punnc burdens to look orter nis impaired ror tune and estates. The domlnat lng trait of Washington's life was a snlrlt ot equity, which Is the nearest appronch to perfect Justice. Nowhero, as far as I know, did Washington quote the colden rule. But If an attentive study of this man's correspondence re veals any single rule of conduct, as nermeatlng bis business and social nf fairs.
