"The women grew nervous in
this glare of the limelisht of
publicityybut under Mrs. Crane's
direction the arrangements pro
gressed. It was Colonel War
ing's New York system that was
to be introduced. The "white
wings" were uniformed and all
equipped with new brooms and
little carts. Then, at -the 11th
hour, the women who had been
assigned in squads of two to act
as inspectors of the work, one af
ter another rang Rev. Mrs.
Crane's front-door hell. With
one accord they began : to- make
excuses. There were sick babies
and unexpected guests, and ,the
ever-useful-husband-who - ref us
es- to-ailo wit.
"So that the league that really
cleaned up the streets was most
ly Mrs. Crane. At first appalled
by the prospect, she neverthe
less stood to her guns when all
but one of her-faithful lieuten
ants had fled. The yellow cara
eras got her, but at the end of
three months she had her reward
The city adopted the system, for
she had done for $5 what had
previously cost $8.39 a day, and
she had proven that sweeping by
hand was better than the mach
ine sweeping that sent clouds of
dust and disease into the houses.
To complete this demonstration
of neatness in municipal house
keeping methods, the league pur
chased and placed on the street
corners galvanized-iron cans for
the reception of waste paper and
refuse, And they enlisted the
efforts' of the ch ildren to keep
the streets free from litter by or
ganizing in the schools junior
civic improvement leagues, with
a badge declaring 'I will help' "
The recent good work done by
the Ladies' Auxiliary and Civic
; Improvement Society in inaug
and successfully carrying out
here the project of cleaning up
the city, is what the women are
doing all over the country and
as "an illustration of J the good
they are accomplishing, the fol
lowing is given of just one city
where '.their work was devoted to
.street cleaning:
"Kalamazoo, Mich., is a city of
only about 30,000 inhabitants,
yet in many respects it has at
tained to such, correct civic de
portmeut . as indicates careful
bringing up by hand by the im
provement league that Rev. Car
oline Bartlett Crane organized
It is vital needs of the heart and
lives of the community
"The league looked on the
streets of Kalamazoo and saw
that they were not hygienically
swept. How" should men know
how to sweep, anywav? The
men of the city government said
that they were cleaning the
streets as the streets always had
been cleaned, and it must be
aright..- But the women said, No,
that they would show them
, " The City Council was asked to
give over to the league six blocks
of the main street for a period
Of three months, together with
the appropriation expended on
this strip of pavement. -
.: "The plan was agreed to. Then
it became noised abroad that the
f womeri of Kalamazoo were going
to conduct this demonstration of
right street cleaning; . And the
yellowest journal- of Chicago,
the" near-by metropolis, began tQ
focus the trained machinerv of

were as follows. The Dalles,

of Union, first but otherwise the
ranking on composition was the
same as the general result. The
