We in Indianapolis have been blest lately in having with us for all too brief a stay Gerda Sebbelov, the young Danish girl who has come to this country to study sociological conditions atid has chosen J-iitportt) for her base 1 of operations. She was the star speaker at the suffrage banquet given at the Claypool Hotel on tho BOth by the Woman's Franchise League. Her theme was the position of woman among certain prhnUive peoples, and she showed how hupeilor her position there is to that of nmny of our sisters today. She ctj'ew a pleasing pictdre of the woman of loeiand teaching her children, boys and glrl^, .and, told of the importance of the woman's vote in deciding questions of general welfare. Her finely modulated voice was n joy to hoar, wbilp her clear gray eves have Jn them a wealth of meaning -- "moio than brain was ever meitnt to fathom," George Meredith says ot such another pair; and her dimples, onf would fain engage Uerda Sebbelov in endless conversation lust to see them come arid go, they are So utterly faoinating! Her gown was a tunic of green and yellow- figured velvet, worn over a skirt of plain yellow chnrmeuse, so the reporter said, but one Mt mly that oin young friend had In some wav become possessed of one of the Princess KKsa's lobes. Again it seined as if one of those splendid Scandinavian women, whom Olive Schreln- er describes as helpers and companions of the men they lov«d, had come back to earth to lend a hand to us in America who are pleading for an opportunity to do our part as factors in human progress. Gerda Sebbeiov's arms were bare almost to the shoulder, and one said a little prayer of gratitude that they were so, for sucli arms one can not see every day, so perfectly molded were lliev and so pinkish- white. and so graceful, whether they simply hung at her sides or wprp crossed, or were used in gesture; all the time they weie their own excuse for being. Gerda Sebbelov is an advance courier of the woman who Is to be -- strong and capable, with a physique fit to bring forth vigorous children, yet not be exhausted thereby; a mind trained to see straight and think clearly, that will quickly discern the relative importance of things and lay stress accordingly; a soul attuned to the highest and sweetest chords in the grand anthem of humanity. The woman Who Is to be will possess every grace and charm of the truly womanly woman of today; but in her face a new beauty will shine forth, that can orily come with freedom and the full realization of herself as that other wing which, Wth .ts partner, is to lift humanity toward the dhine. Miss Sebbelov has undertaken the organization of the northern part of Indiana in the interest of the Woman's Franchise League. The league is affiliated with the State Federation, and we take pleasure in bespeaking for this young foreigner the friendly consideration of club sisters everywhere. + -I- + The General Federation Bulletin, which has recently removed from Troy to 25 West Forty-second stteet, New jfork city, has also changed its name to the General Fedeiation Magazine and celeb! ates these two changes in a new dress for the February issue. Tile magazine is larger and the covp^r is a rather attractive brownish- drab, 'with a conventional design embodying a reproduction of the figures of th6 federation pin. The price is the same and it contains much excellent matter, particularly the outlines of the departments of work. The contributipn editor, Mrs. Philip N. Moore, gives her ideas as to what the General Federation organ should be, and others are invited to offer suggestions along this linp, for the present magazine does not assume to be the nnal word on this subject. The national organization really want to issue a magazine that shall appeal lo every club- woman in the United States, so as to-bf indispensable to them, so if any of our bright Indiana women have ideas, along this line pray send them on at once. Ihey may be exactly what is needed to produce perfection^ + 4- /V\jvjT AD" IN THE STAR i« A "WANT AD" IN THE HOMR apace, and although no outline of program can be given out for (tome time, yet enough leaks out to make us sure that it will be the bes.t council by far that has yet been held. Mrs. W. B. Andrews, chairman of the local committee and" also a member of thV board o'f directors,, writes that the District of Columbia clubs are enthusiast!** over the prospect and that Maryland, Virginia and Delaware have all asked to assist in the pnteitain- meut of guests. Mis. Kills Logan, president of the Art Club and vice president ot the District of Columbia Federation, is preparing an art evening at the Coicoran Gallery, and the presidents of four other clubs are arranging^ delightful program for the evening at the Congressional Library. One who has been in Washington can close her eyes and see both thosp magnificent buildings, ideal settings for the functions proposed, it is indeed a rare treat that is offered to the club women for next April. . 4- 4- 4- Aug. 2 will be Federation day at Chautauqua,. N. Y., and the official announcement reads; Federation day address, Mrs. Poicy~Pennybacker. It is with peculiar pleasure that Chautauqua welcomes Mrs, Pennybacker back as the president of the General Federation of Women's Clubs. She lias spent; many summers at Chautauqua and has always been interested in the development of the woman's club and in all other activities, of the institution; The announcement of her address on the special day devoted to the woman's federation will make it one of the distinctive features of the 1913 program. She will also givp two talks at the 5 o'clock hours on Tuesday, July 29 and Thursday, Julv 31. Mis. Mmily M. JBlshop will'give an address on "Politics and the Woman Who Spends" at 11 o'clock on Federation day. J + 'I A federation of all thp New Orleans clubs has "· lately been oiganized, with Mrs. IncH Mat-Martin Myers as president. Mrs. Myers is also a member of the press committee of tho general federation, and conducts the Woman's Club page of the New Orleans Item. By the way, the Item lias offefed a piize of $25 to the club woman who prepares the best paper of 500 words on the best and most practical ideas for civic impiovement, the name to 1 be finished before March 1. -!· +' 4- The many friends of Mrs. Edwin A. Knapp, formerly recording' secretary of the Indiana 1 Federation, now of Purkville, Mo., will be pleased to liefir that she' had been offered and has accepted the editorship of the Woman's Club department of the Woman's National Weekly, a paper with a i v p r y large circulation, published at St. Ljouis. Mrs. Knapp will attend the Washington council meeting In April. 4, 4. 4, Club women throughout Indiana were, of course, cheered by the passage in the Senate of Mrs. Uucon's housing bill last Monday afternoon. Mrs. liacon, who had gone to her home in Evansville on Thuisday, leturned to Indianapolis Sunday evening and was present when the measure went through, with a considerable number of prominent club friends, Exp iert ire Home Economics Who M .« Many Addresses Mis. Virginia Claypool Meredith, daughter of the late Austin F. arid Hannah Claypool of Fayette County, though per- Imps most deeply inteiested in household economics and ths desire to help girls to make homemaklng a joy instead of a task, is devoted to her literary club (the Helen Hunf of Cambrige City), and delights .in good books. She also is president of the Cambridge City branch of the Woman's Franchise League. With tho exception of a few years spent in Minnesota, where she filled the chair of homo economics in Carleton College, her whole life has been passed 111 her native state, with the interests of which she is entirely identified. A successful -fanner for years, Mrs. Meredith is a fine business woman, whose advice la sought by many because of her naturally sound judgment and long experience. She was twice president of the old Indiana Union of Literary Clubs and has been prominently identified with the present federation from its inception, having been one of those who shaped the consolidation of the two foimer organizations, Mrs. Meredith Is spending the winter with her foster daughter, Miss Mary Matthews, who has the chair of household economics at Purdue University, but she delivers frequent lectuies before farmers' institutes, and, as stated elsewhere, has recentl^ been elected president of the newly-oiganized Indiana Home Economics Association, who rejoiced with her at the victory. We hear that in the debate one senator asked another: "Do you know what the club women think about this bill?"--to which the other replied,--"No, I don't know any club \gomen." There was a reilection on the club Women of tha't senator's neighborhood, to say nothing of the reilection on him; for the club women should malfe it their business to know their senators and representatives who have such important matters to deal witlv as housing and eight hour bills, and .so forth. The club women have « re,- sponsibihty in these affaiis, even though they are merely "wards of the state." They are educated human beings,' with hearts and consciences,' and their legislators should not be in ignorance as to where'they stand on anv matter of. con beiship will prove adequate in publicity to the valuable bulletins and information now available, + 4-- -I- Club women of Indiana sympathize with tho Entre Nous Club of Osgood on tho deatli of Mrs. K. P. Freeman on Jan. 17. Mrs. Freeman had been president of tho Entro Nous and was one of tho most faithful and efficient members, broadminded and progressive. This club has pledged $100 to the fund for purchasing' a library sito for tho proposed new Cainegie Library to be erected this spring, It was tho -Kntro Nous that · was responsible about a year ago for opening a small libiary In Osgood, from which this laigor movement has grown, ·I \- + The Woman's Study Club of Franklin met with Mrs. J.

Williams, the members having bwn invited to a 1 o'clock luncheon preceding the regular progiam. Mis. Williams read ti carefully prepared paper on "Light House Huildj- ing," after which Kate Douglas Wiggin's aitiele on Dickons was lead by Mrs. Alice Daniels. Mrs Turner W,Overman then reviewed uiunrticlo fiom tho Ladies' Home Journal on "Substitutes for Schoolbooks." Holl call was responded to by giving interesting current ' even I H. The visiting guests were Mrs. Ralph Bertsche- of Alexandria and Mrs | Bnum of Lebanon. + 4. 4. The Library extension committed of the Indiana Federation, recommends that clubs all over the stale take up tho earetul study of children's literature f o r , the enmilng year. Since our work center^ so largely around the child, and this in so important a phase of his development, , the suggestion IB a wise one. Mis. , Martha g. Goodwin of Brookville is chairman of this committee'. ^ 4. + ' The very latest addition to the State Federation of which wo have heard is the Mexico Music Club of Miami County, the president of which is Mrs. A. L. Tnl- bot, with Vernon Kikonborry as secretary. It is a mixed club, of which we have all too few, composed of busy rural folk, who, says Harriet Henton, our state pi ess chairman, "all belong to well- known country families who have lived in the rich Eel River valley since the time Jefferson Township was first settled --wealthy farmers who arc loyal to tfiolr country homes around the little old classic village of Mexico, and have peace and plenty ;IH their portion." Doesn't this sound Washington Irving-y? It must be a delightful club, and we long to its fine chorus and its men's and women's quartets, yes, and to attend its banquets. The club was organized in November, 1904, at the home of Mr, and Mrs. L. F. Cox, and has thiity members. The pro- giams include the study of the lives of musicians, readings, Delbarto poslngs, etc. A beautiful concert was given on Jan. 22 at tho home of Mr. and Mrs, Lovl Eikenberry, and last night another was given, in Mexico Hall, for the benefit of the village hidewalk improvement tund. The club is seen to be public-spirited and we are Indeed glad to welcome them to the federation. x Says Miss Henton further: "Another organization which 'does things' is the Criteiion Club of Liberty, of which Mrs. Martha Filer Is president. This club I raised $250 In two 1 months during the past Jiutumn toward a new coliseum for I the city. Tills was done by assessing the members, by selling old papers, having a refreshment stand at a fair which was held and by various other means. This fair Itself was worthy,of notice.

Does your skin chap or roughen easily in this weather, or become unduly red or blotchy? Let me tell you a quick, easy way to overcome the trouble and keep your complexion beautifully white, smooth and sott the winter long. Just get an 'ounce of ordinary mercolized wax at the nearest drug store and use a little before retiring, sis you would cold cream, Upon arising, remove the coating with sudsy water. The wax, through somo peculiar attribute, flecks off tho rough, discolored or blemished skin. The worn- out cuticle conies off just like dandruff on a diseased scalp, only In almost Invisible particles. Mercollzed wax simply hastens Nature's work. Used as required, it keeps the face constantly free fiom devitalised scarf skin and only the healthy, young-loolting skin is in evidence. It's the best treatment known for weather beaten, aged, muddy, freckled, pimpled and all unbeautiful complexions. Some skins wrinkle easily in winter.
