If the ladies of this community would only stop to consider the many advantages of the League in addition to the beautiful Chapter House, we will have built for us, as soon as we have 40 members, we would soon have enough members to entitle us to the Chapter House, valued at $2,500.00. Men work most effectively when they work to a definite purpose. This is an opportunity for the ladies. Here is a proposition which makes all the magazine subscriptions in Monroe City count on the Chapter House. All we pay for is the mag azines for that we get magazines.

Woman's League. Publishers have been scrambling for subscriptions, and giving all sorts of premiums. Ihe wasteful traveling agent and the worse premium plan are being given up.
