The delegates are to be entertained in the homes of the Decatur women and each hostess knows who her guests ace to be. The president, Mrs. Stanwood, and the chairman of the progamme committee will be entertained at the hotel as their duties are so strenuous that any stray min utes that may fall to their lot should be free from the demands of social en-terruptlons.

Soldiering and running the engines on railroads are about the only oc cupations that man can call his own all the rest of the work-a-day world he must share with women. In the domestic and civil fields the scramble for a livelihood has brought out the Ingenuity and Industry of women to points hitherto considered beyond the pale of profit or propriety. See what gentle woman dares! Mrs. Maria Beasley has Invented a barrel machine that rolls out 1,600 barrels daily. Miss Lillian Small, of Cape Cod, spends her time spying through a telescope on the lookout for passing ships, and tele graphs their coming to Boston. Miss Cora Kimball, ot Moultrie, La., belongs to th Southeastern Bill Posters' As sociation, and thereby has the ezdu slve rglht to have the billboards 'of Moultrie pasjjed and plastered with ad vertising posters. Miss Alice Hughes, an artistic young American, was the fortunate founder of the "picture hat," and went to London for a wider field in which to -have It flourish. The directory of Dawson City, containing much valuabje mining Information of the Yukon region, was arranged by an enterprising young womai. Miss Fan nie Carpenter, a New York attorney, has just pocketed a 176,000 fee for win. nlng a case in the court of appeals. Mies Mary Shepard, of San Buena Ventura, Cal., has a flower ranch cover ing 1,000 aores. The profit in the bus iness Is derived from the sale of seeds and not " of blossoms. Mrs, Francis Benedict was the first person to see the ponlt and profit in making a business of writing catching aneV fetching advertisements. It Is printed in heavy head lines that many of the women of the London smart set are interested in trade, ranging from establishments for the fitting and making of ' swell shirt waists, to the setting of precious stones. There Is said to be a demand for professional trunk-packers, for professional story-tellers, for professional "minders of youngsters" (when the mother takes an occasional outing), for professional. .tying of bows at ribbon counters, In fact the woman who learns to do something better than anybody else in her locality is quite apt to find a paying demand for her chosen calling. r To the Women of Little Rock: I am impelled to make an appeal that doesn't need much persuasive eloquence to be convincing.

I have heard many expressions as this: "I wish I was able to manage an Income," "I would like to acoept that position of manager in this school it I could make 'both ends meet,'. but I cannot manage my own income and I would not attempt another's," so the school or college goes on the old road to bankruptcyThat Is the secret otlhe-clostna uo of tnanv an institu tion and 'college, yea, and home. Am I not right? Let, us do something to ward specialised, work. Not to train servants, but capable, Intelligent housekeepers. Let's drop the servant problem and raise the standard and dignity by cultivating Mgher-Wgard for the profession ourselves' and stimulating others to become ' self-supporting through this branch of business. We have the teacher, what we women and men, too,; should do, is to procure the means and facilities for such training, and go about It like you would to make a bookkeeper, typewriter or stenographer.

It The method is that arith metic la the science ot the relation of magnitudes' and should be taught by pictures and blooks of wood, A few examples here might Interest some of the many readers of the "Democrat". who are Interested in bearing about the ''fads"' If not believing in them. 'At the ratio of 1-12 of 24 to 1-12 of 18,300 is 762 1-2 ( what Is the ratio ot 18,300 to 24?" "Close eyes. Handle solids and guess at relative size.'

It is called the process of "visualisation." The, teacher writes words, sentences, etc., on board, allows them to remain a minutes or two, then erases, says "write what you have seen," etc. This is also the Speer method. It Is said that, after trying . Superintendent Spebr's method, it will not work! A visit to the elegant school building at Avondalo shows one what a model school hulldlpg Is even in one of Chicago's suburban towns. Here Is found every modern convenience; beautiful bath-rooms with open plumbing, with women in chargethese are, of course, exclusively for the little folks; station-ary Wash-Btahds on each floor, also stands for palms, ferns and flowers. Surely if elegant surroundings are conducive to study these-little-folks ought to be exceedingly wise. Just now manytjf the early"" fall styles are to be seen in the shop win dows.
