let us all strive to make this the best year in the history of Monroe
A WOMAN'S LEAGUE.
Chapter House Should be Built in
Monroe City Four Members
We now have 4 members of The
American Woman's League in Mon
roe City, as follows:
Mrs. Rebe Bryan, R. F. D. No. 6.
Mrs. E. F. Tompkins, Box 536.
Mrs. Mattie H. Grady.
Miss Belle Johnson.
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.
The Chapter House and all the rest
is our premium,
Frankly -you do not understand
the plan, do you? You are willing
to? You agree that the building
would be nice to have? Why? It
would be a ,'pleasarit place to go

All Monroe City friends should
send every possible subscription
through the Democrat or other
, friends here. .Make every subscrip'
tion help build the Chapter House
The Magazine business is being
systematized by the American
. 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. Instead, the League
through its members, gets the sub
scriptions and the commissions that
would ordinarily be waste are de
voted by the League to the build
ing and upkeep of a People's Uni
versity at university Uty, and
beautiful Uhapter nouses all over
the United States.
Ihe r'eoples university a year
ago was only a dream. The League
is only fourteen months old. Today,
the first of the six great building of
tne University, the Academy of Fine
Arts, is built and occupied. The
cost of this beautiful building alone
is over $125,000.
The People's University is giving
instruction by correspondence to
thousands. Sixty-eight complete
lessons - by mail courses, embrac
ing over two hundred separate sub
jects are now ready. Members may
,take as . many of these courses as
they desire. The minor children of
all members are also welcome to
take any. course desired.. Think of
this great opportunity to educate
. your children at no cost to you
whatever, except the bare coat of
1 nf mnoarla far aonrlind nn tth Iacqati
papers to be corrected.
A booklet on the courses now
ready may be had on request at the
Democrat office, or you may write;
direct to the People's University,'

any detailed information,
