WOMAN AND HER CLUBS- L06ANSPORT LADIES ABE THE LIF£ OF KCMEBOUS SOCIETIES, ••elm, Intellectual, MuNleal a»d Ch*rlt»bl«-»*omo of the Prlnelpml Women'* Clobn Tft»t are to be Found in the City of Bridge*. The wonderful and far reaching Influence of woman on all phases and condition* of society, in whatever poaltlon or connection she IB found, has always been acknowledged, and U In erery year becoming more appar. ent, more assertive, and more agreea- bleand pleasing to man. Women have taken the first steps In the movements for sweet charily that have met with a large degree of success in Loganeport- Women's clubs are practically the only organizations In the city that have as an object the improvement of the minds and the clearing of tho mental visions of tho members. On» of thess thriving Organizations is TUB TUICSTJAV NIGHT CLUB, In 1889 Judge D. P. Baldwin organized ;ho Tuesday Night Club.. Tho meetings occur on alternate Tuesday night*, and tbero Is no club in the city that is given more attention by tho mombord, or from which moro pleasure, mental nod social, Is derived. Tho ofllcers are D. P. Baldwin, president; Dr. W. II. Bell and W. T. Wilson, vice-presidents; Mrs. D. D. Dykeman, socretary; Mrs. W. H. Snider, Mrs N. W. Cady and Mrs. Q. A. Myers, committee on program, Tho work of the club is divided into sections under tho heads of hid tory, travel, nrt, science, and Shakespeare. Tho members of the different sections, on the night thoir topic Is up, may bo called on to prepare a long paper oa an evonlcg's discourse under their particular head, Tho Tuesday Night Club may be regarded as aao of tho most substantial and beneficial of tho many organizations noted. No folly enters In to jar upon the sensibilities or agitate the intellectual atmosphere that Is breathed in long, refreshing draughts at its meetings. THE SCOIAL CLUB. The semi-monthly meetings -of the Social Club, an organization that has for its object tho mental blossoming and expanding' Of Us members under the warming influence o( healthy social contact, are most pleasant affairs for those concerned. Some thing new and entertaining is sure U bo on the program each moating. The social club has boon organized three years. Its members are not numerous, but they are mutually most agree able. They aro Messrs. and Mesddmes Tomlinson, El lott, GratlU Reynolds, Douglass, Junks, Hauk and Graves, Mrs. Forrest and Miss Duukle. TflK CKCILIAN CLUB. A body of ladles to whom music is as much an object of research and study as Is literature, is tho Ceollian club, organized In 1890. Every third Wednesday tho meetings of tho organization are held, and tho works of the master's in harmony and in letters aro at those times intelligently handled, and tho composers and authors themselves discussed, and something learned of their lives and tho periods in which they sang or wrote. In the Cecllian there aro sixteen active members and forty associate members all of whom are proud ot the society at d much interested in the work, from which great benefit is de^ rived. The club's officers are Mrs. W. H. Snider, president; Mrs. J. Krels. secretary. THE GERMAN AND FJREXCtt CLASS. One of the organizations along educational lines almost exclusively is' the class lo French and German conducted veiyably and Intelligently by Miss Emma Smith, At Cupp's studo on Tuesday afternoon* and evenings, ihomeois tho class in French,In which lire sixteen members. A German Class of about the same number of pupils is heard Friday afternoons and evenings. Tbeae classes, besides being useful in tho line of acquiring .knowledge of and fluency in the use of modern languages, also tend to cultt vate a taite for the good books of the languages studied, and a desire for the Boolety of tho§e who can appreciate aad enjoy discussions of the books, the authors, the lands from which they iprung, and the result of such Intercourse and study of bright feminine minds can but be very satisfactory. These classes are among the most profitable of all the intellectual clubs among Logansport's ladles. THE YOUNG PEOPLE'S MUSICAL. To the Young People's Musical Club, about thirty members, most of them young ladles yet in icaool, belong and all derive much benefit from the meetings which are held fortnightly, and at which compositions are executed and disousied, a different composer being brought up »t each meeting. THE INDUSTRIAL-CLUB. The Ladies' Industrial Club Is so called because the ten members take their work with them when they goto tho regular semi-monthly meeting on Wednesday afternoons. The club has no officers and recognizes no red tape trimmings In the shape of rules and by-laws, It was organized two years ago at Lake Maxlnkuckee, tho object being to keep up the pleasant Intercourse among the- limited number of congenial ladies who aro in the circle. Each summer the Industrials spend a fortnight at £he cottage of Mrs A. R. Shroyer at Max- Inkuckee,',and the stated meetings of the social family organization serve to koo? the ten friends Qrmiy welded, during the winter months. The club has dono much good in a quiet way. THE THIMBLE Ci.L'li. The Thimble Club's name would indicate its objoct and the occupation of tho deft feminine hands of the charitable members. It has periodical meetings and at times the club is entertained at the home of oco of the members. THE WEST SIDE LITEKAKV. An organfzition made up of about thirty married people, and styling themselves tho West Side Literary Club, has existed a number of years. Meetings are hold twice a month. The club is literary in name, but sociability is the chief aim of tho gatherings. There is no regular organization. TOE HEADING ; CIRCLE. At the Broadway M. E. church each Monday night the Reading Circle meets for the study of the Holy Bible There are about fifty In the class and there Is an able Instructor, Both sexes are admitted, but it is certain those who attend aro feminine by a large majority. SOME CHARITABLE SOCIETIES. The Ladies' Aid Society of this city has always been in the lead In the accomplishment of any good work. We have not the space to mention all as they deserve, but the Ladies of the G. A. R., the Womsns' Relief Corps, tho St. Joseph's Sowing Circle, the Ladies 1 Auxiliary to the R. R. Y- M C. AM and many other societies in connection with church organizations and alone, are doing a noble work along charitable and educational lines, and It is evident that the organizations should be encouraged In their bsttles.

The Bemaikable Campaign of Ad- vertlttlns br Which It HUM Been Introduced 10 the P«t>i>le of Michigan and Other State*. Tor three months there has conducted in Michigan the most re markable commercial campaign ever known. In that short period of time Manager Johnston has Introduced the steel range Majestic in ever, important city and town. In the i-ommi.n wealth. While the genius of invea. tlon had been active in other ilue», It would eeem that for years previous to the Invention of the steel range Majestic by L. C. Culver of St. Louis, Mo., that little progress had' been made in the Improvement of cooking apparatus. No article of diily usi plays so important a part in the economy of daily life as the cooking stove or range useo in the kitchen. For years it was tht solo aioa of the manufa'cturersto mak» their goods more and more ornate covering them with cheap effects ii porcelain or nickel, thus adding u tbeir weight, making them more cum' bersome and sacrificing simplicity ant utility for trashy show. Little or m progress has seemingly beea nude in ihe scientific construction ot modern cooking apparatus. It remained with Mr. Culver to Invent a cooklne range practical in operation, simple in con- stiuction, and built upon scientific principles. In giving to the world this steel range Majestic some five years ago be gave a revelation to the hardr- waro trade, and a boon to the housewives of America. When the Majestic Manufacturing company WHS organized in St.[Louis to make and sell this great cooking apparstup, Mr. Culver, 'who assumed the active management himself,Qbrought to bie work a practloalj'knowledge of the stove. me and my house, in its line, It is perfection. Yours truly, D. H. NELSOK. MAJESTIC IN INDIANA. How the Wonderful New Steel IB Beinr Introduced. After a hundred days of the moit remarkable advertising known in year a in connection with a commercial article, the army of salesmen under the generalship of Manager J. W. Johnston, of the Majestic Manufacturing Company, has begun to more from the southern cities of Mich igan into northern Indiana. The first exhibit made was at Elkhart, with Pope & Jones, that closed a week-ago and the next was an exhibit with the Hawke Hard ware Company, ofGosbec. and then a large exhibit was opened In the fine stores of the Seavey Hard- ward Company, at Fort Wayne. Oiher exhibits are cow in progress with Smith Bros , cLagrange; Koicbem & Wilson, Plymouth; Ross & Bannister, Valparaiso; Flanegin & Crismond, Lo- ganeport; Carpenter & Alber, Decatur; Schatffer & Lock, Decalur; with Irving A.' Sibley, South Bend; and with dealers in Richmond, Frankfort, Warsaw, Infiianapolis.cetc. Within a fortnight these salesmen will behold iog exhibits in 20 of tho leading towns of Indiana. In 30 days northern Indi •trut will bo recovered [in a mcst thor nush and effeclive manccr acri a which ;e foothold gained>ithtbe trade will Jorpver make the steel ran Majestic a household word. In SO days 70 towns in Indiana will be covered in this manner, agents located and the success of Michigan repealed Plymouth, lod., 1S93. Majestic M'/g.

Respectfully your?. DR. c. c. DUN; trade and a ripe business experience covering more tnan thirty years. Realizing that in the steel range Majestic ha had an article 0' universal necessity and one possessed of preeminent merit appealing to every man and woman in the land, he inaugurated an original and aggressive method of introducing it, and in so short a time there has been built up under his direction the greatest manufactory of steel cooking ranges in the world. In 1894 the Majestic Manufacturing company made and sold more steel ranges thjin all other conoerns in the world combined. FROM HIGH AUTHORITY. What a Prominent Mlchieon Lumberman Says cf the 3l»jf siic. Tha Hon. D. H. Nelson, who resides at Mt. Pleasant. Mich., Is one of the substantial business men of central Michigan. He is the banker of that charming little city and has large interests in lumbering and in manufacturing enterprises. During the recent exhibit of the Majestic Steel Range in ths store of George Falkner, of Mount Pleasant, Mr. Nelson pur chased a Majestic bteel Range. In reply to a letter asking him for his honest opinion of the Sloel Range Majestic, Mr. Nelson sends us the following beautiful tribute upon this modern cooking wonder: MT. PLEASANT, Mich., Feb. 1, 1895 Majestic Manufacturing Co. Gentlemen:—Criticise the Majestic! Its name ia all I can criticise. , la our kitchen it is not Majestic In any sense. Oa the contrary it is like a dear friend, serving, comforting and cheering; almost a sentimental thing, as nearly so, indeed, as inanimate matter can be. Think of what you most desire in a range or cook stove, provide jouraelf with a Majestic and yon are supplied, have no fault, to find or name. ,Tp j MAJESTIC A MARVEL. MR. SIBLEY'S OPINION OF GREAT RANGE. South Bond Tribune, J"€b 23. During the past week "Slbley's Hardware" was the favorite resort down town for the ladies. Every afternoon the handsome double stores were thronged with ladles who came to enjoy the refreshments served by Mr. Sibley, listen to the music and to have the points of the great Steel Range Majestic explained to them by the courteous salesmen sent hereby the' Majestic Manufacturing Company. 1 -This Steel Range Majestic" said Mr. Sibley to a reporter for the South Bend Tribune, 'is positively a revelation to me. Tiewed In a light of my more than ten years 1 experience in the stove business, I must say positively and conscientiously, it is nothing short of a marvel. I watched that range in operation for six days, closely day by day, for it is jny rule invariably to satisfy myeelf of the merits of an article before recommending it to my customers, The first three days of the week we used wood in the range, and the results were perfect. We baked biscuits in three minutes, and more perfectly baked biscuits I have never seen. As a very large portion of my patrons, however, use coal, I reserved my judgment upon the range until I had seen it in operation with coal for fuel. On Thursday I became fully convinced that the Steel Range Majestic is the greatest cook stove on earth for the use of hard coal After seeing the /act demonstrated, I can so recommend it to my patrons. •In looking over the range," gald Mr. Sibley, "I have been unable to fl'nd'a single point which I can critl. else, la tbe.ftrit place the simplicity ' of the Mtjesttc recommends it at once. It is not only perfect in Its operation, but the materials used in its construction, cold-rolled, double- stretched, wrought, fteel and malleable iron, are the most perfectly adapted for the purpose that can be devised. The range is as durable as can be and will go a long way toward solving the hired girl problam. It will stand any amount of banging by hired help. To persons who have had to pay for frequent stove repairs, this will appeal auongly. The range is riveted together with over 500 rivets. The steel and non-breakable Iron is drawn with rivets until the whole construction la air tight. It is lined also with asbestos which prevents the radiation of heat. The range is a great saver of fuel, because the beat being kept Inside a very small amount of fuel in the fire box will do the baking and roasting. The fire box Is the most perfect contrivance of the kind on the market. Ins.ead of being lined with grey brick, it is made of solid plates of gray iron, and the linings are warranted for five years against burning, no matter what kind of fuel Is uscl. The principle governing the operation of the fire box as well as that of the oven, is new, and the results obtained by tbo range both cooking and roasting acd saving fully one-half the ordinary consumption of fuel, is past belief. In fact, had I not' seen with my own ejes, I could hardly have credited tne statements made by tho factory salesman. The reservoir is not on the back ond of the stove where the water will cool on one side ot the oven, but is on tho othor t ndwhe.ro Itcomes In direct contact with the (ire box and the water *s kept b. iling with direct heat from the firo, whicn in other stoves and ranges is thrown off into 'the room from the stove and wasted. The handsome copper water boiler holds 15 gallors of water, and is one of the finest features of the range. The grate in the firo box can be changed for wood or coal by simply turning a crack. If you are using wood you can change tho grate in 30 seconds so as to use coal. This grate Is one of the simplest, and the finest_ thing of the kind I have ever seen In any stove or range Altogether," concluded Mr. Sibley, ••! am convinced that the Steel Range Majestic Is the best cooking apparatus on the market. The price of the range can be saved in fuel in from one to two years, not to say anything of the great saving it will make in everything that is baked or roasted in the oven, cor the benefits to bo derived in having food to eat that Is perfectly and healthfully cooked. The Majestic has an air-tight oven, which excludes the poisonous gases and the direct harah beat from the fire. The air within the oven is heated by tho hot air currents which circulate about it, and an even, high temperature is secured in this way throughout the entire baking area. Bread and meat roasted in the oven are not dried up, but aro cooked moist and sweet, not only the weight being hardly decreased by tho baking or roasting, but the natural juices and flavors of the food being retained to a high degree. In this re spect for its hygienic properties, Steel Range Majestic should be ia every home, where health and happiness is even more to be considered than tho paltry dollars that It will-save in fuel. Elkhart, led, Feb 15, 1895 Pope & Jones, Gentlemen: One hundred dollars wocld not buy my Majestic steel range if I could not buy another. It is a splenced baker anil cooker and requires very little fuel. L D BROWN SOUVENIR RECEPTION. LOGANSPORT LADIES INVITED TO TEE MAJESTIC KITCHEN.

We want all the ladies to call whether they are thinking of buying a cooking range or not. •••What do you think of the Steel Range Majestic ?" was asked Mr. Flanegin. "Well," said Mr. Flanegin, in reply, "I have been in the stove business in Loganspo'rt for over fifteen years, and' during thai time I have handled all the best makes of cooking apparatus on the market. To me, after carefully studying U and comparing it with others, tho Steei Range Majestic Is nothing short of a marvel. It is tho simpleet cooking range I have ever seen, in construction, and it is made of the strongest materials that could bo devised for the purpose, malleable iron and cold- rolled steel. It will last a lifetime, and the guarantee of twenty-five years made by the manufacturer will recon>~ > mend it to thousands who have bad\_j buy a new .stove every few years. ' -Tbe most remarkable feature of the range, however," eaid Mr. Flanegin, ••is the perfection as a cooker and a baker. Its oven and fire box oper» ate on an entirely new principle, and the results obtained are nothing short, of marvelous. We baked b'fe* cults In our store here In three minutes by the watch, and I never saw more perfect looking. Tho top and the bottom are browned alike. TL.e oven is air tight and the food cooked or baked is moist and juicy, and the natural flavor is retained in the highest degree. The air .tight oven not only makes bakiug perfect but keeps the poisonous gaees and the dry harsh heat direct from the fire away from the food. To one the steel range Majestic is the only perfect cooking stove I have ever seen, and I cannot recommend it too strongly to our patrons. We hope everybody in Logansport will call and see the range In operation." . ^r^""n""""™^^^^"^~ Souvenir Reception.
