While it cannot bo denied that some
women's clubs seem to exist mainly to
show off tbo bonnets and gowns of the
members the list of really useful ones
becomes widt r with each returning au
tumn. This year in New York city
there was intense activity among the la
dies' political organizations, more than
tin -e lias been at anytime before. Each
candidate for mayor bad clubs of w

By tho way, como to think of it,
where is any club of men that has done
ns much as this?

exclaimed a man on looking at tho
picture of an American lady who lias
won a noble place in a profession. Who
wants you to fall in love with lmr, you
conceited idiot? Not tlm woman herself,
certainly. Tlio solid fame ami money

like yon. You and your kind will find nut
that the Almighty made women for
something else than merely to be fallen
in love with by fools. First und foremost
