Thompson, correspond ing secretary; Mrs. W. S. Holt, treasurer. Su perintendents of various work were also elected. Miss Henley, as superintendent of state and local prison departments, is doing a noble work. Self-denying, always at her post of duty, this whole-souled woman goes on from one New Year’s dawn until another. “The regling of the pris oner” is never unheeded and “those ready to perish her constant care.” Mrs. L.

Then the treasurer Mrs. McDiarmid takes charge of the children’s nickels and dimes for the Bank of Thrift; all to be paid back with interest. And all go home happy and -conscious of an hour well spent. THE LEADING CARPET HOUSE.
