Thero is an endowment fund in tho
hands of tho trustees in Boston for tho
establishment of nno of tho largest of
freo f cranio colleges. It is tho bequest
of John Simmons, ono of Boston's most
successful merchants, who died in 1S70.
Tho original Simmons bequest con
sisted of this property: To his daughter
Marion ho gavo tho granito front storo
at tho corner of Franklin and Arch
streets, tho granito front storo on Water
and Dovonshiro streets and tho land
upon which it sat, and tho old Simmons
mansion on Trcmont street and tho land
belonging to it At tho deceaso of Mar
ion tho estate, together with tho accu
mulations, was to bo given in trust to
tho Simmons Feinalo college. To his
daughter Alvina was given tho granito
front storo situated at tho corner
Franklin and Hawley streets and tho
land belonging to it, tho wholo to bo
held in trust during tho daughter's life,
and at her death tho estates, cxclusivo
of the accumulations thereon, were to
bo given to tho college. In addition
thcro was left ?30,000 in money for tho
pnrposo of building a block as a nucleus
for tho collego fund, tho incomo . to bo

Fcmalo collego was for tho parposo of
teaching medicine, music, drawing, do

of nrt, scienco and industry.
Tho Simmons collego might today bo

Two years ago somo of tho women
stenographers and typewriters of this
city formed an association. Thoy were
13 then. Thoy aro 100 now. They aro
known as tho National Association of
Women Stenographers ana aro incor
porated. Within a few weeks tho ar
rangements and legal forms of a sick
benefit havo been comploted, so that
women who aro alono in tho world may
count in caso of sickness upon three
months' financial support and a woman
ly sympathy extending far beyond that
limitation. Meetings aro held every
thrco months, and addresses havo been
mado by Mrs. Charles Henrotin and
Mrs. Henry Shepard. It is their inten
tion to havo lectures from timo to time
from women who can inspiro them to
broad and noblo work. They havo now
begun somo threescore of them tho
study of parliamentary law at Central
Music hall, an earnest that tho associa
tion is going to transact its business
with vigor and legality.
Miss M. E. Orr, who holds tho gold
medal for tho championship of tho world
for speed in typewriting, is an honorary
member of tho association. Their presi
dent is Miss Nettio McLaughlin, a Chi
cago girl of considerable literary ability
and marked cxecntivo force. She, with
Miss Harriett Shinn, will go as dele

to bo held in Washington. This is tho
only body of business women in tho
country that belongs to the national
counciL Miss bhinn will read a paper
to open tho discussion on "Woman as a
Factor In tho Modern Business World."

association and has a fino mind and
broad sympathies. Sho is the daughter
of a Methodist minister and is doing a

Woman's Progress In 1894.
In concluding an interesting article
on tho progress of woman in' various
parts of tho world in 1894 Mrs. Warner
Snoad, president of tho International
Woman's union, says:
"Thus it will no seen that progress
has been literally all along tho lino in
different countries and in most diverse
subjects. Success, moreover, has come
in competition, so that no allowance
need bo mado on tho scoro of sex. These
distinctions, gained without favor, place
tho position of woman on an altogether
impregnablo basis. No longer can it be
said that women aro inferior to men in
brain power. Theorists of tho typo of
Dr. Crichton Brown may prove to demon
stration that women aru unfit for severe
mental labor, but they cannot explain
away tho facts which directly contro
vert snch a view. Yet in spito of this
thcro is no social earthquake tho old,
old story is as sweet as ever, homes are
as well cared for, and baby worship has
not ceased. God fcrbid it should be
otherwise! Even the jealously guarded
women of tho east are feeling tho reflex
of western thought Lady doctors are
admitted in Turkey. Miss Yoseph will
soon practico in Persia, Miss Eddy in
Syria and Dr. Mary Sugana in Japan.
In India many native ladies aro study

progress on tho dead sea of Zenana life,

tho triumphs of our own sex wo grate

She Was Xot a Club Woman.
Tho attitudo assumed by somo non
club women toward tho woman's club
question, as a whole, is amusingly shown
in a littlo incident related by Helen ii.
Winslow in tho Boston Transcript:
"When tho North Shoro club of Lynn
gavo a reception tho other day, says
she, "thoy sent carriages to meet all
visitors at tho trains. On tho arrival of
tho 3:30 train from Boston tho half
dozen ladies who had been delayed till
then wero met by a cordial littlo woman
with the inquiry, 'Aro you for the
North Shoro club?' and when wo replied
in tho affirmative she asked us to come
with her to tho carriage in waiting.
Naturally we felt that every possible
courtesy was being shown us and were
eminently satisfied with our lot and os
pecially tho cordial littlo lady's part in
it Finally, just as wo wero going off to
our carriages, sho espied another woman
who was evidently waiting for some
thing. She was a well dressed, middle
aged woman and really looked as if she
might bo eligiblo for our party. (I beg
her pardon.) And so our cordial little
hostess stepped up and put to her the
question, Aro yon for tho North Shore
club?' But now tho stranger straightened
herself up, and tho nnutterablo scorn
sho looked! Sho did not deign to answer
by any words, but that look plainly
said, 'I should hopo not!' And she gazed
at us as if wo wero a lot of freaks the
liko of which sho had never come across
before And we? Oh, we fled to our car
