Clubwomen always are interested in
club affairs, and the women of Port
land have been particularly attracted
to the success of the Ebell Club of
Los Angeles, as a former Portlander,
Mrs. William Lawrence Jones, was the
president last year and was enter
tained here. Mrs. W. S. Bartlett is the
president now and the organization
continues to flourish. This is the lar
gest woman's club in the world. It
was patterned after the Oakland Ebell,
which was organized in 1876 by Dr.
Adrian Ebell, of Berlin. Los Angeles
Ebell was organized in 1894. At its
last meeting the president urged the
members "to keep Ebell a sanctuary
of the ideal." The success of this
club, its liberal patronage of art. phi
lanthropies and matters of civic inter
est make it an organization that should
Inspire pride in all the women of this

M;t; upon a time there lived a
youth named Joel, who did not
seem to care much about work or try
in any way to help his mother, who
was a widow and had to work to take
care of them.
One day after becoming very angry
with Joel, his mother said, "Ton shall
not have a morsel to eat until you go
to. the woods and gather faggots to
make the fire. Then I will cook you

Joel took his cap from the peg be
hind the door and started off, walking
so slow and looking so stupid that his
mother called after him to hurry or the
sun would set before he returned with
the wood.
When Joel reached the forest he saw
by the roadside just before he turned
into the forest an old woman asleep
with her head resting on a stone.
"Poor old lady," thought Joel, "she
looks tired and I know that stone
must hurt her head. I will make a pil
low of my coat and put it under her
So. without awakening her. he nn
tly lifted the old woman's head and
put under it his coat.
When he had gathered the faggots
and was returning he passed again the
place where the old woman was sleep
ing, and as she was still asleep he did
not awaxen ner to get his coat.

mother when he reached home, and

Joel did not think- any more about
the coat until it became cold weather,
and one morning he went out of his
house shivering as the cold wind
struck him, and wishing he had his
Great was his surprise when lie saw
hanging on a tree in front of the house
the very coat he had put under the
head of the old woman in the Sum
mer. Joel put it on and ran into the house
to show his mother.
"Look, mother." he said, "here is my
coat back at the very time I needed
it, and it has a new warm lining. I
wonder who could have done It."
"I don't know," his mother replied,
"but now that you have a warm coat,
you better go into the forest and see if
you can find faggots enough to keep
us warm for another day. I do not
know what will become of us; we have
no wood to make a fire to keep us
irom freezing.
Never fear, mother, answered Joel.
I will find some wood." And off he
went to the forest.
'I wish I had a nice, warm oair of
mittens." thought Joel, whose hands
were cold, and no sooner had he wished
than upon his hands appeared a paid
of thick mittens.
Joel looked at them in a stupid way
and thought: "I must nave had them
on all the time and did not know it."
When he began to look for frfrnt
he found only a few stray pieces
scarcely an armfull.
'Oh. dear. I wish I could fin a r-art-
load to take to poor mother," he
And then Joel rubbed his eves nnd
stared, for on the ground before him
he saw a cart full of faggots.
HOW will I get them VinmA?"
thought Joel. "I have a cart full of
faggots, but I have no horse to draw
mem. t wish I had one lust to -.t
them to our door." There was the
horse harnessed to the cart as soon as
the wish was out of his mouth.
Joel jumped into the cart and drove
up to the door, his mother ran out and
asked. "Where did you get the horse
and cart and all the wood? It will last
us me rest oi tne Winter."
'I don't know." said Joel. "T in.
wished I had them, and there they
were before me."
But his mother did not bellevo -him
and was about to punish him to make
him tell where he got them when an
oia woman noooied up to the door and
said. "Your son speaks the truth, he
wished for the cart, the horse and the
laggots to neip you, and because he
was kind to an old woman once and
gave her his coat for a pillow it has
been returned to him with the marie

"Dear Miss Blake: We are two girls

"Dear Miss Blake: I am in love with
a young man who is 24 and I am 20. He
has taken me home four times, but
never makes a date. I was told that
he was bashful and that he never takes
a girl home more than once. But he
has taken me home four times. I heard
if he takes a girl home more than
once he likes her. But taking me home
the way he has and never making a

nice. Would you please tell me what

HEN I overheard someone make
that old-time remark, "Girls will
be girls." the other day I began to re
fleet. Is it really true? Is it a girl's
ambition now to be only a girl, to hide
her frivolities and shortcomings be
hind the screen of sex?
At that point the girls whom I knew
came to my mind in all their pride
and youth and strength. They are full
of ambition. They seek, in their leisure
hours, the gymnasiums and swimming
tanks, that they may be strong like
their brothers. They go to work in
the morning like their brothers, proud
to bear their share of the burden of

adage should read: "Girls will be
boys." Not that any nice normal girl
