A Moral and Social Force to Be
The amazing growth of the Interna
tional Sunshine Society, especially in
churches and Sunday-schools of Va
rious denominations, has aroused much
interest In many quarters.
To the questions so often asked,
"How did the Sunshine Society orig
hnate?" "W. hat is its object?" "What
has it accomplished?" and "How do

yoti do the work?" the following an
swers were made. During the hoWl
days several years ago the President
General, M'rs. Cylnthia Westover Al
den, was the r'ecipient of a number of
crt'ds from her co-workers on the New
York Recorder, as well as from outside
friends. On Christmas Day she pro
tested, and said that, while she had
enjoyed her gifts, she would have had
infinitely more pleasure in their re
ceipt if the donors had not written
their names on them. This statement
horrified her audience, who, with one

Investigation soon developed the fact a
that the waste-basket was the ultimate k
destination of most of the cards re- g
ceived. Some spent a few months a
tacked on the wall, until flyspecked a
and discolored; others were used as d
bookmarks until lop-eared; then all a
were thrown away without having e
given an additional ray of sunshine to o
any one beyond the immediate recip- a
"Suppose you take the history of one t
pretty ten-cent card that came to me a
year ago," said the President-General. s
"It had an exquisite little poem on it,
and I enjoyed it so much that I thought
at once of an old uncle who would ap
preciate it, and forwarded it to him.
He, as I thought he would, did enjoy
it, and so much that he immediately
recalled another old friend to whom it
would appeal with special force. So
he copied the poem and sent the card
on. This recipient found the sentiment
so sweet that she, too, felt called upon
to pass it on, and before the seven
days' holiday was over the card had
carried its Christmas message to six
Inspired with this idea of sending
out remembrances that might be mul
tiplied fourfold, a new set of cards
was given by the staff to" the Presi
dent-General, who immediately sent
them all out again. The thanks re
ceived for those cards were so pretty
that an item was made of it in the
paper. This caused further corre
spondence, and resulted in a club for
the -xchange of friendly greetings.
This was formed in February, 1890.
The name "Chat" was at first chosen
for the column, but in time the mem
bership grew so large that a club badge
and the motto "Good Cheer" were se
lected, and the name "Shut-In" given
t) the society.
On January 1i1, 1896, the name of the
society was canged to the Sunshine
This change was made because of
conflict with a shut-in society organ
ized in 1S84. Changing the word Shut
In to Sunshine did not interfere with
the club motto or pin.
'Ihe $ eject of the society is to incite
its members to the performance of
kind and helpful deeds, and to thus
bring the sunshine of happiness into
the greatest possible number of hearts
Its active membership consists of
tle people who are desirous of bright
ening life by some thought, word or
Ti' club motto. "Good Cheer." was
furnished by Mrs. W. HI. Chase, of
Lefferts p)lace, Brooklyn.
The faral emblem is the coreopsis,
selected from thousands of sugges
tions sent in by nmembers. The flower
chosen was sent by Mrs. Richard Nor
ton, of Highstown, N. J, The coreop
sis is a beautiful yellow, and is a per
ennial of the daisy and sunflower
The club colors are yellow and
white, and were selected by Mrs. E. L.
Scofleld, State President of the Con
necticut Division. Yellow is typical of
the golden sunshine. and white is em
* blematic of the purity of purpose that
characterizes the sunshine work. The
song decided upon by the majority
vote of the members is "Scatter Sun
t shine," the words of which were writ
ten by Lanta W. Smith and the music
by E. O. Exccll.
The growth of the society has been
almost phenomenal. Starting from a
thought, it has grown until its mem-.
bers now number many thousands.
From one parent society branches have
, sprung up. until every State in the
Union is represented with regularIl
enrolled Presidents. Wben a State has
ten branches, each one consisting of at
least ten members, it becomes entitled
to a State President. Besides the
various States and Territories of the !
United States, there are also branches 9
in foreign countries. At the beginning 3
of each year a new rollbook is opened, I
which contains the names of all who ;
have paid their annual dues.
The membership fees are not oner
Oils, consisting merely of some sugges
tionf that will bring "sunshine" to
some of the members of the society.
For instance, exchange of books, pa
pers, pictures, etc.; ideas that may be
utilized to advantage in the sick room;
work or employment that canr be fol
lowed by a "shut-in"i fancy work;
holiday suggestions; sending flowers;
i general exchange of ideas beneficial
to the members;
The Board of Directors is greatly
pleased by the fact that an increasing
number of Umembers are, of their own
accord, choosing to let the kind kcts
that constitute their' dues take the
fo=ul bf regular contributions to the
endo*ment fund; ten, twenty-five or
fifty Cents a week. Several are giving
even more. The International Sun
shine Society has never asked for
money, and its officers serve without
pay, but the passing bn bf articles
sent by tnembers requires cash for
stamps and 'expressage.
One of the strongest organizations
in the society is the New York State
Division, of which Mrs: Williani Tod
Helmuth is the (energetic President.
Tile V'ice-resident is Mrs. Nellie E.
C. Furman, of Brooklyn, who has di
rect control of the Long Island de
partment. Mrs. Furman possesses rare
executive ability and mnany of the
pinia briginateti by her are adopted by
sister State Divisions.

-IMODERN ELECTRIC CAR SEATS.
I Individual Chairs That Can Be Faced in
When one has become accustomed
to the long trolley cars now adopted
as a standard in this city, and par
ticularly to the cross seat future, the
old type of lengthwise seats and short
er cars appear as out-of-date as the re
t membrance of bob-tail cars filled with
straw in winter. It is so much more
satisfactory not to be seated facing a
long row of staring, curious passen
gers; but progress is not to be halted
merely at the cross seats and already
another improvement is being intro
duced. On the Brooklyn Heights line,
an experimental car is being operated,
equipped with chair seats. The interior
of the car is shown in one illustration
and the details of the seats in the
other. These cars are also designed
to be converted into summer cars
when the season rolls around. The
seats are individual, so there can be

very few birds winter there now and
it is about the only small feathered
