OLD COACH IN PARADE.
The old Calvert mansion at ltiverdale,
Md., is now the property of the Lord Balti-
more Country Club, who occupy It as their
clubhouse. Mr. Lofstrand, the secretary of
the club, on request of the celebration com-
mittee, sent the old family coach of the
Calvert family to Baltimore, where it was
honored by a prominent place in the pa-
rade. The old coach was accorded much
applause, although its antiquated shape
and style provoked a smile in this day of
automobiles, Pullman cars aud aeroplanes.
But the unique old conveyance has n glory
all its own, for upon its old, faded cush-
ions have rested many distinguished per-
sonages, among whom were Lord Baltimore
himself, besides such famous men as Henry
Clay, John Webster and other American
BAN ON ALL WAR TALK.
The Government clerks of all departments
have been warned to abstain from all dis-
cussion apropos of the European conflict.
It will be rigidly enforced, following the
suggestion of the President, who has ex
pressed his views very strongly to the head
officials that, the clerks under the Govern-
ment must maintain a strict neutrality and
rel'raiu from all "war talk" and discussions
us to the different nations' responsibility
for the awful carnage abroad. The cen-
sorship extends even to the corridors dur-
ing tho luncheon hour, and anyone attempt-
ing to ludulge in a martial conversation in
any of TTncle Sara's workshops will be at
once notified he Is infringing the rules.
The wisdom of the official edict is evi-
dent when it is remembered that the work-
ing force in every bureau in Washlngtou
is composed of clerks of many nationali-
ties. It is said that in one office alone
there are natives of each one of the bellig-
erent nations, the French-born American
and the naturalized German citizen happen-
lug to sit side by side. Were these two
clerks to be permitted to express their
views, and should the Belgian, Austrian
aud Russian also join in the discussion of
the relative merits of the European com-
batants, it is quite apparent there would be
"something doing," and that something
would not be the routine office work.

Iti-tiily, rector and author, who Is opposed
to woman suffrage, lie bewails the faot
that there are 450,000 unmarried women In
New York City, with only 800 unmarried
men to mate with them, leaving 150,000
Biilnsterb, who, the doctor believes, should
"be sent West.
The sood doctor has made an unfortunate
fholce of an awful example. It says!
"There Is no female suffrage In New York,
where the 4W),000 women cannot find hus-
bands, while the West, where the men are
clamoring for wives, is the stronghold of
votes for women."
Alice Stoue Blackwell. the noted leader
and writer, refutes Professor Baldwin's
assertion that "wuman suffrage points
straight to race extermination." "We have
heard this kind of talk before," declares
Mrs. Itluckwell. "In the debate that pre-
ceded the grunting of school suffrage to
women, u member of the Massachusetts
Legislature declured: "If we make this In-
novation wo shall dstroy the ruce, which
will be blusted by Almighty God.' College
education for women was to destroy the
race also, and the same thing has been
said In regard to every enlargennnt thus
far made of woman's sphere." Mrs. Black-
well pertluently points out that the coun-
tries where the birthrnte Is steadily declin-
ing happen to be noil-suffrage, while she
states emphatically, "the only countries In
the civiii/.<Hl world today, so far as I am
aware, that have a rising birthrate todaj
are New Zealand and Australia, in boti
of which women vote."
BOllROWS MELTING-I*OT IDEA.
A Petrograd report slates that tho Dow
-iicor Kmpress of Ilussln, formerly the CV.ar
ilia anil mother of tho present Czar, has
sent out an urgent appeal throughout ltus-
sla for jewelry and articles made of gold
and silver, which will be melted up and
become part of the relief funds being
raised for the Red Cross Society.
Mrs. Medlll McCormlck, chairman of the
National Congressional Committee, who
fmt Into active operation the melting-pot
dea, originated by ber able coadjutor,
Mrs. Antoinette Punk, little thought that
the suffrage scheme would be so successful
that the results achlved In the United States
would give birth to a similar plan In far-
away Russia, but sucb seems to b« the
case, for the Dowager Empress' plan for
raising funds is Identically the same ai
that so successfully carried out In the re-
cent suffrage melting-pot, which railed
many thousands of dollars for women. Mrs.
McCormlck and Mrs. Funk modestly take
no credit for the fame their project has
achieved, but they express themselves ns
being glad to know that whereas their
funds were to help women , their Idea Is
not being exploited to raise money for war-
fare and to buy guns and other engines of
destruction to destroy men; the money will
be utilized to aid the great humane society
of the Red Cross, which succors friend and
l'oc alike, no matter what hla nationality or
The Grand Duke ConstantlnoTltch was
one of the first of the royal contributors
to the Russian melting-pot, having donated
three handsome rings. Wedding rings,

ver and ornaments of nil kinds are being

wood. At the art luncheon Mrs. Sherwood
was one of the speakers and was most
kind In her references to the progrss of
art In Txas. Nhe gave great credit for the
art interest In our State to the work of
Mrs. Joseph B. Dlbrell, who, perhaps,
next to Mrs. Sherwood, baa done more
1 than any other one person to stimulate
art Interest in the State by her purchase
of the Ney Studio aud organization of the
Fine Arts Association.
The suggestions of the art committee for
the ensuing year will be given, so clubs
may co-operate In their efforts to secure
art exhibitions and confer as to the best
methods of interesting children In this
most Important branch of education.
WORK OF ART DEPARTMENT.
At this stage of civilisation in America
the "field of art" la, but Just reclaimed
from the primeval wilderness period, show-
ing here and there a hopeful, fruitful
Our ancestral traditions are Puritanic.
The curious notion still largely prevails
that It Is best to look strictly to your
ethlca In this world, and take your es-
thetics hereafter. None of the established
institutions of our civilization are seri-
ously interested In the matter of art. Our
church does not regard beauty as a neces-
sary part of the spiritual life, our edu-
cational Institutions are primarily de-
voted to science, and send out most of
1 their graduates, wholly unfamiliar with
; the history of art and without knowing
I that there are artists even in America
' whose names will live ns long as those
of our great generals and Presidents. Our
business world revolves In a little circle
of the dollar, regarding aft only as some-
thing to corner with accumulated dollars.
Our Government gives away for commer-
cial purposes much of our acenlc beauty
and taxes art as a luxury of the rich.
This is the situation that art lovers and
apostles of beauty In America must
acknowledge and face.
Nevertheless, we are out of the wlider-
uess and in spite of environment, human
nature persists In being much the same
In all times and placea. The American
child loves beauty as naturally as the
: child of any other race; he Is only sadly
unfamiliar with it.
To help him to become familiar lias
been our aim In the art department.
Whert we began seventeen years ago our
personal missionary work for art, we set
out to bring up « generation of children
In oiie community that should have a
knowledge of art and artists as a neces-
surv part of their education.
Now this large situation commanding
the sympathy aud co-operation of the
thousands of art lovers in the General Fed-
eration of Women's Clubs, we know we
can reach a vast multitude of children
aud In a generation greatly Improve the
art situation In our country, for children
can learn, and through the amazing In-
fluence of "The Third House" we hope
j to reach them all.
ENCOURAGE STUDY OF ART
It has been our policy to encourage the
study of American art In 'clubs, to insist
on color In schoolroom decoration, to point
out the value of good household decora-
tion, to givfl practical encourngement to
American arts and crafts workers, to glvo
needful Information on civic art, and to
call attention to the Panama-l'acrtflc art
exhibit, as a great means of art education
in modern art
In order to make these Ideas practically
Influential, various exhibits covering their
scope were arranged and bandied by dif-
ferent members of the art department,
article* were written for publication, lec-
tures were given, State chairmen were co-
operated with and all letters of Inquiry
were answered as fully as our knowledge
would admit of. From the replies received
to a questionulre sent to members of the
art department, the chnlrman compiled
the following summary of the work accom-
plished in the department from July 13,
1913, to May 20, 1514.
We have written In the department a
total of a,004 letters. We have given 102
lectures. We have written for publica-
tion eighty articles. We have arranged
aud handled twenty-three different col-
lections of art that have been sbown In
twenty-two different States and 192 cities.
At a low estimate, these exhibits must
have reached intimately, for they were
community affairs usually, at least 126,000
people. A total of ninety-six pieces were
sola—seventy-two pictures and twenty-four
pieces of pottery. In handling the exhibits
there was an outlay of $1.301.50, mnch of
which had to he prepaid by members be-
fore the exhibits could be started.
This report will be all too long If we
do but touch on the many Inspiring, hu-
morous and pathetic Instances that have
come to light In doing this work. The
work leaves us with a clearer understand-
ing of the art situation, both from tha
viewpoint of the artist and the layman,
and much accurate knowledge of the art
needs of club women, and some definite
ideas and plans for supplying those needs.
We are Inspired by the vision that it all
brings to us a completely cultivated people
here In America, with reverence for the
beauty of the earth and a paaslon for
recording the fine ldeala of our Nation,
in enduring art forms that will add charm
to our common life and to our splendid
democratic Institutions something of the
"glory that was Grecce and the grandeur
that was Home."

RUINS THE HAIR
Makes It Lifeless, Dull, Dry.
Brittle and Thin.
Glri»—If you want plenty of thick, beau-
tiful, glossy, silky hair, do by all iheaue
get rid of dandruff, for 1t will starve
your hair and ruin It if you don t.
It doesn't do much good to try to brush
or wash it out. The only sure way to
get rid of dandruff Is to dissolve it, then
you destroy it entirely. To do this, get
about four ouncea of ordinary liquid
arvon; apply it at night when retiring;
UBe enough to moisten the scalp and rub
it lu gently with the finger tips.
By morning most. If not all, of your
dandruff will be gone, and three or four
more applications will completely dissolve
and entirely destroy every single sign and
trace of It.
You will find, too. that all Itching and
digging of the scalp will stop, and your
hair will be silky, fluffy, lustrous, ■ soft,
and look and feel a hundred times bet-
ter. You can get liquid arvon at any
drug store. It Is inexpensive and four
ounces is all you will need, no matter
how much dandruff you have. This slm-
ple remedy never falls. (Adv.)

It Is with especial pleasure the chair-
man of the press department sends to tb«
papers In her district the call of the sec
ond district president, urging the clubs
In her Jurisdiction to enter the literary
contest. Every district should take pride
In being represented. All cannot win a

in gaining information or classifying what

ing greater facility of expression. The ob-
ject of the contest Is to encourage Texas
w riters tn write on Texas themes, to de
velop a distinctive literature that shall.
In time, bring added laurels to onr State.
The time Is snort; manuscripts must be la

has no excuse to offer for a shortage of Parisian models.
Suffice to say that we placed our orders with our New
York importers very early in the season, and many
of these had already been shipped or received before
war was declared. Thus are we able to offer a grand assortment
of imported models from the world-famous artists of Paris, leading
New York milliners as well as scores of smart designs of our own
The assortments offer not alone an inexhuast-
ible selection but the most satisfactory range of prices,
embracing simple but correct designs at popular prices, to
the more elaborate hats of foreign "architecture."
Never mind the obstruction of Commerce Street. Take the twelve-
foot sidewalk from either direction and you'll have no trouble in
