Cruising the Mediterranean FUNCHAL, MADEIRA 11, The morning after our arrival in the bay of Funchal we were again con veyed to the quay in the small motor tenders and this time chose an oxen drawn “carro” as our taxi to take us to the railway station. This convey ance was a combination of old-fash joned carriage with fluttering ging ham curtains and a sled with wooden runners. A man running along the side holding the reins and shouting to the oxen, and two little boys formed the crew. One of the little tattered waifs carried a greased rag which he laid under the runners from time to time to lessen the friction, and the other ran ahead of the oxen with a long stick to exhort the plodding ani mals to quite a respectable speed. We wound up the steep hills through nar row streets bordered by red tile-roofed plaster or stucco houses, whitewashed or painted lime green, pink, lavender, or blue, with front doors opening di rectly upon the street. In one place the wrought iron railing of the bal cony of a light cream colored house was covered with a mass of scarlet bougainvillea for which a background was formed at the turn of the street by a lavender stucco house with a pic turesque doorway. At the railway station slanting cog way cars were taken for the ascent to Terriero da Lucta. The little engines puffed and pushed so long and so hard that we felt sorry for them. From the car, we looked down upon one neatly terraced garden after another with its tidy little house facing the sea. Each house had a different and more delightful chimney than the last. One could write a book on chimneys of Madeira. Beautiful little children ran up the steep incline beside the open cars throwing flowers to us in the hope of having a few pesetas thrown back to them. All of Fun chal was a luxuriant garden. Fresh green of grass and trees and a profu gion of very fragrant and perfect flowers; camillias, roses, huge sweet violets, calla lilies, and brilliant bou- VISITS PHILADELPHIA FOR INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE Mrs. Lenota B, Simpkins, who has been president of the Washington Hu mane Education and Anti-Vivisection Society from its inception, has gone as a delegate from this society to the International Conference for the In vestigation of Viv'section, of which conference she is a vice president.

At the top of the mountain, we had the little bay and the whole wide Atlantic laid out before us. We strained our eyes to see something beyond the island, but the sky and the water merged in a blue-gray fog so that we could not dis tinguish where one ended and the other began. The descent was to be more thrill ing than the jerky cog-railway ride. A path very carefully paved with tiny pebbles set by hand, wound down through the carefully kept scrub pine forest and between the high walls surrounding the gardens and huts, on down to the shops. Wicker sledges consisting of a wicker chair for two or three with foot room in front, all mounted on wooden runners, were the conveyances for the ride. A man ran along beside each sledge to steer it safely around the corners and to regu late the speed. The cool, fresh air blew past us and the rate at which we took some of the curves kept eve ryone alert. As we passed we saw women in dooryards or on knolls, and girls in convent gardens sitting in the sun, embroidering to make the fine work for which the island is so fa mous. At the end of the roller-coaster-like ride, after generous tips had been given to the now panting runners, we were taken by automobile to Reid’'s Palace Hotel for luncheon. It chanced that Irving Berlin and his bride were there at the time and some of our fellow-cruisers had seen them din ing there the night before, so we were all on the look-out, but were disap pointed. An automobile ride over a wonderfully engineered pebble-paved highway gave us marvelous views of the sea and the country about Fun chal. In the two or three hours remaining before returning to the boat for tea, everyone shopped frantically thinking he or she was driving great bargains, only to discover next day that some one else had the identical lunch cloth for five dollars less. The cruise man agement recommended certain shops phia. On October 19, the International Conference for the Investigation of Vivisection will be the guest of the congress, with a business meeting at 10 o'clock, a luncheon and a visit to the Sesqui-Centennial in the afternoon. Mrs. Simpkins will speak before the New England Anti-Vivisection Society on October 14 at Tremont Temple, Boston. She will be also the guest of various Anti-Vivisection societies on her way east. The Illinois Anti-Vivi section Society, whose headquarters are in Chicago, is a daughter society of the Washington Humane Education and Anti-Vivisection Society, and the Anti-Vivisection Society of Portland, Oregon, is an offspring of the Wash ington society. The Ibsen Club will go to Mont vale Farm, on the Little Spokane, to morrow, where Mrs. A. L. White will be hostess. The club is reading a series of modern plays, each hostess making her own selection. The Questers Club will open its year's program with a 1 o’clock lunch eon tomorrow at the home of Mrs. J. M. Gunning, 8927 Adams street. Mrs. E. J. Peterson will preside. Mrs. W. C. Hawes will read the Pulitzer prize play, “Craig’'s Wife.” Mrs. W. O. Wisner will have “Criti cism,” and Mrs. William B. Wright will be club critic for the day. Mrs. Dewitt Fisher entertained the Current Events Club at its first regu lar meeting of the fall on Tuesday, at her home, 82325 Jefferson.

The little shops around the main square were hum ming with business as the travelers tried to pick out the best linens and do a canny bit of dickering with the excitable shop-keeper. The less ex perienced and less discerning bought “real linen” which had passed the moisture absorbing test right before their eyes, and later had all the joy of possession taken away when on closer examination the handkerchiefs Crenshaw O thic Hospital St. Louis, Missouri I —ar - .. gl - | = i . f P i i B - o | ; q e . 1 e o ) | Eo - ///-\g g \ll ] L g - - - .- 1‘ —— 4.__‘..- e --—w.., 3 I |, WA . .v- s " . e e £ 77777‘”47 o 8 sl JOHN H. CRENSHAW, D. 0., Surgeon in Chief Erected and equipped at an expense of $500,000.00, it is con ceded by all who are familiar with building construction to be the best built, most modern, and best equipped hospital in St. Louis. Osteopathic hospitals are just a little different than the so-called “standard ized” hospitals in that every form of treatment known to have any value in the cure of disease is used and the patient is given opportunity to receive what ever treatment seems to be indicated in his particular ease. Each depart ment of the hospital is in charge of a specialist, who does nothing but his par ticular specialty. This hospital has a large number of patients not confined to the hospital, who come in daily for osteopathic care. All operative patients receive post operative osteopathic treatment. This hastens recovery and is a great relief to the patient. Post-operative pneumonia is practically never encountered in patients receiving post-operative osteopathic treatment and the oldest osteo pathic hospital in existence can boast of having never lost a case of post operative pneumonia. Affiliated with this institution is a Training School for Nurses accredited by the State Board of Nurse Examiners of Missouri. DR. H. E. CASTER J. E. HODGSON DR. W. G. THWAITES DR. MARY E. COON I. C.

But it was too late then because the ship was on its way and shop-keepers of other nationalities were lying in wait for the inveterate shoppers. We had only a flash of the beauty of Madeira, but it was enough to make most of us anxious to go back again to stay long enough to absorb its charm. The clear balmy air, the gor geous vegetation, the picturesque neat ness of huts and walled gardens, the apparently untiring energy of a poor people, all entered into the magic which is Madeira.
