expedition to put down the Panama re
bellion which was turned back by
American warships acting on orders
from Washington. D. C. Naturally,
General Reyes takes care that Colom
bia does not suffer in his presentation
of the controversy. Yet General Reyes
cannot be accused of being a revolu
tionary. He has shown enough con
fidence in the Lnited States to have
his two sons educated in this country.
In the more important interior regions
of South America General Keyes has
been an intrepid explorer, and two of
his brothers lost their lives in that
exploration field. The general view
he takes is friendly and optimistic.
He thinks that "every country must
conform to the high order of civiliza
tion imposed upon it by the demands
of universal peace and good will. The
Kepublics of Argentina, Brazil and
Chile have shown, in a manner worthy
of emulation, the practical wisdom of
diverting the energies of the people
from the harmful pursuits of civil wars
to the more beneficial occupation of de
veloping the national industries."

"With 110 illustrations and three
maps, this history of the land called
by the Indians "Qiianeh-ta-cut" Uhe
long tidal river) and known to modern
Americans as Connecticut, will com--..
,i -aanAri and n careful reading.
It is not only a perfect storehouse of
early and modern New England his
tory, but it goes back to the dark
ayes of the Mesozoic period, when the
land was the romping ground of gi
It is interesting to read of the
method by which the early American
settlers In what is now the State of
Connecticut bought land from the
ignorant Indians. On page 18 of tnis
book we read that November 24, 1638,
these settlers bought of "Momaguin.
the sole sachem of the region, a large
tract, paying Tor it 12 coats of English
cloth, 12 brass spoons, 12 hatchets, 24
knives. 12 porringers, and four cases of
French knives and scissors. In De
cember, they bought a tract 10 by 13
miles, north of the former, a tract
which now includes parts of New
Haven, Branford, Wallingford, East
Haven, Wootlbrldge. Cheshire. Hamp
den and North Haven. For the second
lot the payment was 13 coats, with
liberty granted to the Indians to hunt
within the lands. In the Summer of
1639, they met in Robert Newman's
barn, and In a formal way laid the
foundations of their permanent gov
ernment." The brave part which Connecticut
played in helping to lay the founda
tions of civil government in our coun
trv, in the War of the Revolution; and
particularly in our Civil War from
1861 to 1865 where Gideon Welles,
General Nathaniel Lyon, Major-Gen-eral
John Sedgwick and others gained
imperishable glory are all fully
recorded. The philanthropic instttu'
tlous and insurance business of the
state, its literature, art fend agricul
ture receive also adequate notice.
In short, we meet with useful his
tory concerning people and institutions,
of a kind not usually met with in or
dinary records of the past.
There are many New England people
in this region, particularly people
from "the land of steady habits," and
to all of them and also the general
reader, this book can be cordially
commended. The pages are 609.
Too Never Knew Your Luck by Sir Gilbert
Parker. 1.25. George H. Do ran Co.,
New York City.
A novel by such a distinguished
writer as Sir Gilbert Parker is a not-
aoie event. Me rcian mv -"The
Right of Way." "The Seats of
the Mightv." "The Weavers." etc.
"You Never Know Tour Luck" is
based on an old plot of this author
a portrait of a married man living
among strangers, far from his native
town, and passing as a bachelor, until
he is suddenly discovered to be a wretch
of a married man. The story has search
ing analysis of character, grip, pathos,
and little or no humor. It is too stately
for the latter quality. It pictures fine
sacrifices and a purified, noble love.
Askatoon, Western Canada, a prairie
town on the pathway to the Rockies,
is the scene of the novel. The heroine
is Miss Kitty Lynan, and this is her
picture: "She was a symphony in gold
nothing less. Her hair, her cheeks,
her skin, her laugh, her voice they
were all gold. Everything about her
was so demonstratively golden that
you might have had a suspicion it was
made and not born: as though it was
unreal, and the girl herself a proper
subject of suspicion. The eyelashes
were so long and so black, the eyes
were so much like a topaz, and the
little glint of gold In a tooth, the one
weak member of an otherwise perfect
array, that an air of faint artificiality
surrounded what was in every other
way a remarkable effort of nature to
give this region, where she was so
very busy, a keynote."
Kitty's father had been an Irishman,
an engineer, who had lost his life in
a railroad accident. Kitty's mother
kept boarders, and one of them gave
his name as James Gathorne Kerry.
The latter had boarded with the Lynana
for four years and had become a part
of Kitty's lire. Just because he was
a man and what is home without a
man?' perhaps because he always had
a kind, quiet word for her, and some
times a word of buoyant cheerfulness;
indeed, he showed in his manner oc
casionally a boisterous hilority.
Augustus Burlingame. a lawyer, had
also boarded with Mrs. Lynan and her
daughter, and when his conduct be
came objectionable toward the women
he was "fired'' from the house by
Kerry. - Other boarders were Jesse Bu
brusn,and handsome woman named
Egan. a professional nurse.
Kerry is, also Known aa SMcl Croiier.

COST OF GENERAL FEDERATION OF
WOMEN'S CLUBS DECLARED $17,000
Portland's Invitation for Council Meeting in 1915 Declared "Hit" and With Special Train Excursion for Club
Women to San Francisco Little Doubt Is Pelt aa to Its Acceptance.
BY SARAH A. EVANS,
President Etate Federation of Women's
IT WOULD be Interesting to know
how many of the thousands who at
tended the recent convention of the
general federation at Chicago realized
the work it entailed; how many gave
a grateful ' thought to tho' army of
women who labored for two years to
fulfill the promise of Illinois "that this
should be tne greatest biennial ever
held." Few, we would venture to say.
While attending conventions we are
very prone to obey, figuratively, the
injunction of St. Paul, "eating what Is
set before us, asking no questions."
But it is only fair to remember they
cost time, energy and money.
For more than a year the local com
mittees of Chicago met almost daily,
maintaining headquarters and sending
out bulletins as the work progressed.
While the Chicago women - declare
that for its size their convention was
the cheapest ever held, it cost I1T.000.
The clubs of the state contributed about
three-fourths of the cost. The rest was
subscribed through the activities of the
Chicago Association of Commerce.
The largest expense was for the Au
ditorium, for which the committee paid
16000 for the ten days. The cost of the
music was 2000, and of printing $1000.
The excursions for the "sociological
pilgrimage," in which 1000 women par
ticipated, cost $400.
At the board meeting on Monday
morning, following the final adjourn
ment of the convention, the board pre
sented Mrs, George Bass, chairman of
tho local board, with an exquisite dia
mond breastpin. Perhaps It was "like
women," but everyone wept at the pre

A few days before Mrs. Decker left
Denver for San Francisco, on that last
Journey, she wrote. In reply to an In
vitation to come to Portland to speak
for suffrage, the campaign for which
was then on:
"I should Iiko.'to come, for I love
you, but Hattie Is to be married and I
am hurrying homo with a party of
friends for the wedding."
When the fatal illness came Hattlc
hurried to her mother's side and re
ceived her earnest request not to post

and so she was married on the day set.
