HOW MANY ? YOUNG PEOPLE SAVED TO AID COLORED GIRL By Clara Zahlten. In telling o f the work of The King's Daughters Circle, It must all be from memory, as no written account has been kept. OC what use to recall what you have tlone? God will remember the good, and the neighbors the bad. When our society was organized in 1889 we had no definite plan of work, and for a few years we did This i s the Inst of th e letters and other papers rend during the the recent celebration of the Congregational Diamond • Jubilee. All letters have either been published in full or summarized. Miss Zahlten still lives on the family farm north of town. The the Circle she writes about Is no longer in existence, having been disbanded in wartime Society Helped Student to Attend Cclllege ••MUAU^__^___ n fftwflimdftva ago, but still had a whatever wo found to do. When, in 11895, Miss Francis Yoemans came to Algona, soliciting- funds for Flsk University, she succeeded in Interesting us In the -work, and we decided to take a student. Girl Helped Tlirough College. Miss Yoemans made no mistake when she gave to us Miss Anna Lindsey. Anna was studying music, and we kept her at Flsk five years. She wrote me once that her father was not the man he ought to be, and her mother, whom she almost worshipped, was obliged to work out and for years was with the evan- gilist, B. Fay Mills. Anna was the only child. Ever since her graduation from Fisk she has been a teacher at Ettrlcks, Va., a normal and industrial school for colored boys and girls. We have always corresponded, and in a letter oC recent date she says: "We have about 1000 students, a nd over six hundred are girls. Our school Is on a hill, just across the river from Petersburg. School Grew Rapidly. "The main building here Is used as a dormitory for the girls, with class rooms on the first floor. Parts of the building are five stories high- other parts four stories. When I came this was the only building for students, but now we have two others for students and teachers, with live cottages for the married teachers." Speaking of her mother, she said: "Mother was taken from me 15 years ago. She was all I had and Since then I've tried to do what I could for others, feeling that that s what God -would have me do." Other Students Helped. Anna was the only student we really claimed, but for 13 years we helped what we could. It required $50 a year to support a pupil. I well remember that when copies of our adv. did >ve receive last week, and how many will we receive this week. A Christmas present of a 49-lb. sack of FLOUR to the person guessing nearest correct. Name Address No. received last week No. received this week Closed all day Christmas. 'Busiest little store in town.' got our first dollar, of Mrs. Winnie Sterzbach exclaimed in glee, "Good! It's all raised but forty-nine dollars! 1 ' And that has ever been the spirit of the Circle. You know, our motto was, "Look forward, not back; look up, not clown; look out, not In; and lend a hand." Club's Other .Activities. While \ v o were raising the money for Fisk we/ also collected papers and magazines and sent them to the lumber camps. We cut quilt blocks and sent them to Miss Collins to be used in the Indian schools; we {fathered second-hand clothing, and made quilts and comforts; and we always found a place for them. No doubt it was through Mrs. Stacy that we learned of a missionary at Buford, N. D., the Rev. WHY WAIT FOR GEORGE TO SPEND IT Legend tell* ns of a Chinese ruler who decreed that at a given moment each and every one of hi* subjects should yell at his loudest so that the man in the moon might hear. The great day came—and silence. Not * sound was heard in all the land eicept the feeble cry of one old deaf man. Everyone else kept quiet to that he himself could hear the others. Thus we see that one more ancient discovery may be credited to the resourceful Chinese—that of "Jetting George do if'-^-the most widely used of all their gifts to civilization. Today too many of us are waiting for George to spend it. I am no prophet. I have no standing as an economist. And I am not a magician despite my claim that a thing, ban be made larger by taking away a part of it. What do I mean? The best way to insure capital is to spend a part of it when prices are low. The man who spends one dollar out of ten in making business better will find the nine worth more than the ten as values rise. Mass achievement is ever a matter of individual and co-operative action. Napoleon got his army over the Alps a man at a time. We must rescale the peaks of prosperity the same way. The Now Is The Time To Buy Trail is our easiest path. Each one who can must spend—and millions can spend if they but Will* While we are waiting for the release of frozen funds to start a buying wave, nineteen out of every twenty dollars in 16,655 banks are free to spend as we Will. 133,695,974,000 are on deposit. This is 25 per cent more money than we had in all of our banks when we went into the World War to help save those across the sea. Now we refuse to save ourselves. ' Depression will linger if we wait to spend out of income instead of out of capital—and our capital may shrink while we wait. Industry has signed with N. R. A. Some have signed-until it hurts. 1 he public should now sign with industry and spend some of its capital. The cow without pasture can give no milk. An industry without sales can pay no wages. Feed industry. Buy something. Build something. Let us not forget this—better an hour of work than a dollar for dole. Capital h going to take care of the unemployed—either by buying what labor produces or by dole taxation. The choice ia obvious. And when we spend, personal selfishness should take a holiday. The chisel should not replace the golden rule as a business tool. Those who use it will help prolong depression and in the end murder quality. Let's take a look at the Blue Eagle. We see in its grasp the symbols of industry and action. The chisel is conspicuous by its absence. Let's remember this whenever we do business with our fellow men. And further, neither capital nor labor should attempt in times like these to intrench itself at the expense of the common good. And no chisel should lurk in any political coat-tail. Let us have public, as well as private, unselfishness. Ours is the richest country in all the world. It is rich in money. It is rich in market. It is rich in a necessity of replacement and repair built up by the highest standards of living the world has ever known. Let's inflate our confidence before we inflate our currency. Let's reraemher that God helps those who help themselves and that Mr. Roosevelt is not likely to do more. He can't throw the forward passes and catch them too. He expects each and every one of us to play ball with him. Let's stop nursing 'depression. Let's begin to count our blessings. Business is better. It is like a man with a trunk half way up stairs. It is but taking a rest before starting for the top. Let's give it a boost. •Buy Something! Build Something! This message is not addressed to those who cannot spend or to those who now are spending. It is addressed to the man who is jingling f the slacker dollar in his pocket, little aware that it is growing less in purchasing power as prices rise.

In a Christmas letter Mrs. Allen wrote: "It has been nearly seven years since you and the King's Daughters sent me the box of clothing and other comforts. It doesn't 'seem so long, does it? The baby is a big boy now, going to school, and the little boy I had then is almost 3. The next older brother is in the Navy; went on the New York on a Pacific cruise last fall." Reports of Mr. Allen's work are published from time t o time in the Home Missionary. | Uox Sent to Academy. | T|J I; last box our circle packed went to Thrall Academy, Sorum, S. D. A good "write-up" of a school there was given in the American Missionary of January, 11917, And here- our talent for making- comforts came into use, for the bedding we could send was needed. We made a pretty pink comfort, tied with white, and sent it to Mrs, Jorgesen for her own use. She wrote back tha.; she laughed when she saw it, for it was -so near tha color of her hair, find she said she was afraid that her hair and the comfort would not agree even in the night; but she would treasure the comfort and use it on special occasions, such as when the superintendent made a visit, or a dc-ar friend came. Hemmed Flour Sacks Please. In packing cur bcxes we always tried to put in something not a necessity. A bag: of black walnuts in a box brought a letter of thanks, saying they had 1/een sreatiy enjoyed. Mrs. Stacy once sent some pretty dishes, and in reply the minister's wife wanted to know how we knew she had broken her only cream pitcher. In Mrs. Jorgensen's box we put some hemmed flour sacks, and she mentioned in particular the -nice "dish towels" we were s o thoughtful as to send, and told how much they needed them. That was the last box 'that our Circle sent, for the war turned our activities into other channel:). "We do not feel that we have lost Mrs. Stacy from our Circle, for her was always so in earnest, and she was always s o In ernest, and she "abounded in every good work." Thre e Charter Members Here.
