CORA M. DAVIS, of Union, Or., was
recently elected, at Rochester, N.
Y., national president Women's Re
It Is a trite, though true, saying that
Is verified every day, that "This Is
woman's era." Organizations for every
known object under the sun, composed
of women, are constantly foVmlng.
While all In a sense are patriotic, as
they deal with the problems which go
to make the home and the world better,
none teaches patriotism as directly as
the order of which Mrs Davis has been
As early as 1870 the records of the
Grand Army of the Republic show the
work of woman In connection with the
charity work of that order. In the fol
lowing years many small leagues were
established, all working for the good
of the soldier. In 1883 a call was Is
sued Inviting all Indies interested to
meet at Denver, Colo., and form a na
tional organisation. At this conven
tion 16 states were represented and 26
different branches. These all voted to
unite as a Woman's National Relief
Corps. Thus upon July 26 that year
the order was recognized as Its auxili
ary by the G. A. R. and today It stands
the most glorious charitable organiza
tion In the land, embracing all national
ities, all religions.
Beginning with only $45 in the treas
ury it now has many thousands, and
spends large amounts every year aiding
the aged comrade who fought for his
country during the Civil war. Thirty
five states In the Union pay tribute
through their departments to the na
tional while 12 states, mostly In the
south, having no state organizations,
are what are called detached corps1 and
are controlled directly by the national.
In addition to the labor of caring for
the "old soldier" and his family, is that
of teaching patriotism to the younger
generation, and Incidentally to their
parents also. It la through this order
that the United States flag waves over
the school houses from Maine to Oregon.

she received her education, but has
been for a number of years a resident

position are of the strongest. A nat

sympathies and great dignity of char
acter. Ehe has been connected with several
other orders, among them the Pythian
Sisters, where she has held the highest

that of the Grand Army and the Wo

that the national honors should come
to this state.

IT appears that domestic science Is
rapidly becoming a most interesting
study for many Intelligent women.
While women's clubs take an Increas
ing Interest In the broader sort of house
keeping known as good government, yet
this activity instead of making women
Indifferent to the home, .really stimu
lates their interest In household eco
nomics. Housekeeping loses much of its as
pect of drudgery when every branch of
It becomes a matter for scientific
study, and it Is recognized as a perma
nent occupation. As women learn some
thing of the ways of men at work, they
reirllze that the business man or the
public official,. performs a vast amount
of dally routine drudgery which is not
a whit more Interesting than washing
dishes or cooking.
Men, however, are trained froro early
youth .to habits of systematic Industry
In business. They learn to take the
routine as a matter of course.
Women are apt to think that the of
fice boy, the clerk and the stenographer
do all the drudgery and leave the busi
ness man free. If a man's business Is
prosperous enough, he may get rid of
considerable routine jkhrough assistants
and use his time for more Important
affairs: but he has to meet the problem
of Incompetency In help, as well as
If It Is extremely vexing to have your
cook leave, for higher wages after you
have spent months training her, It Is
also harassing to your husband when
his stenographer concludes to marry
Just after she has become familiar with
the routine and acquired some speed.
The business man wastes no time In
bemoaning the situation. He gets the
'best help he can afford and does the
rest of the work himself. Women
might be happier If they applied a sim
ilar philosophy to the household.
If a trained and competent housewife
cannot get good help, she had better ad
just her domestic menage to what she
can get and do the rest herself.
With the scientific interest in sani
tation and cooking to add some mental
stimulus to the task, many women of
moderate means are doing their own
There Is always the laundress and the
day worker to help with the heavier
tasks. - If a woman's circumstances are
such she can afford the trained nurse,
housekeeper and governess, she, like
the prosperous business man, may se
cure freedom from routine and turn her
mind to the larger Interests which af
fect the home.
Domestic science Is most valuable be
cause It Is teaching women to take up
their profeslon of homo making as a
serious and permanent business and one
well worth a lifetime of work. "Amer

0NK of the most important, and cer
tainly one of the most Interesting
departments of the Woman's Chris
tian Temperance union Is that of the
department of labor, It could well be
called the department of social service,
as It covers the same ground that Is
covered by the national social servlr-e
work. It has been especially active this
year. Mrs. Mae Whitman of Califor
nia, is the national superintendent and
Mrs. Lucia Faxon Addlton has been the
national lecturer for many years and
has written the larger part of the liter
ature of the department. " A circular of
Instructions written by Mrs. Addlton
and sent out by the national superln-
tenaent, is an educator In Itself, and
shows the far reaching possibilities of
this line of philanthropic work.
It starts out with a plea for Dledges
against shopping Saturday afternoon
and evening and the week preceding
nonoays; it urges study clubs, that wo
men may be intelligent on every -phase
of social Industrial questions, It plans
for publication and distribution of lit
erature covering every possible phase
Ot the great social reform. It alms to
keep In close touch with current press
news. It ssys: "Read study them, then
cull the facts obtained, clothe them In
our most persuasive, convincing drap
ery ' of thought and so reach masses
high and low." The department Is ac
tive In social legislation, having been
a prominent factor in many legislative
enactments for the benefit of the great
wage earning fraternity. It works for
domestic science and makes efforts for
the benefit of' household helpers, social
secretary work as a new profession, a
social visitor who shall work among the
neglected and submerged classes, rest
rooms, , social -centers, . playgrounds for
children, social .settlement work, co

Taggart, proprietor of the French Lick
Springs hotel, at French Lick Springs,
