This sj)ace is given for the u-c and

literary merit to obtain place and recogni

You scarcely saw the lowly mound,
With mos and blossom strewn around,
But there beneath the cooling shade
Long years ago the grave was made
A little grave, a lonely grave,
A dreary, melancholy grave.
No marble marked its head or feet,
But waving flowers, doubly sweet
Grew 'round and each In silence fell,
The melancholy tale, to tell
Of this small grave, neglected grave,
The willow's own, forgotten grave,
The grass is nowhere else so green.
As 'round this hallowed spot, 1 ween,
The flowers are brighter, fairer too,
And sweeter Is the fallen dew
ground this silent, slcided grave,
This doubly dear, and solemn grave.
The world knew not the grave was there,"
As did one mother, full of care
A mother's hope, a mother's fear
Aro slumbering, aye, forever here
AVithin this lowly little grave,
This calm, moss-covered littlegravo.
The birds are silent in the trees,
Low whispers hero, the passing breeze.
And e'en the leaves so brown and sear.
Drop softly, and so silent here
A round this unforgotten grave,
This mother's shiine, this little grave.
In foreign land the mother dwells.
But here the sighing zeplier tells
That far across the desert drear
Her dcart's desire is clustered here
Around this sacred little grave,
This hallowed, sad, neglected grave.

This is "woman's week" in Wash
ington, and a Washington letter of
this date with the International Coun
cil of Women left out would be an an
omaly. Still wiih the space allowed
me even, the merest epitome of pro
ceedings would be an impossibility.
The council has been in full sail for
live days; there have been three ses
sions each day, with half a dozen spea
kers on the programme of each session,
so that you see 1 could not even men
tion tho names of tlio delegates to this
convention with the subjects discussed
by each without giving a list of such
a character as would prove to bo very
But really the women are having a
good time and an interesting time in
Albaugli's opera house. The city is
full of distinguished women from ev
erywhere, and this is by far the most
important gathering of women the
wvi Id has ever seen. They come from
the farthest limits of America, and
from across the ocean, from England,
from Franco, tho Scandinavian Penin
sula and from far away Finland.
The object of tho conference is to
improve the. condition of women in
the church, the state and the home.
And tho wide scope of the topics un
der discussion gives unusual interest
to the proceedings. The improvement
of their political condition is only ono
of the matters to bo considered, and
the attention given to their notable ad
vances in other lines of development
has drawn to the city certain represen
tative women and lias added to the
audiences a number' of hearers who
would not be attracted if the crusade
had but a single end in view.
Nothing that pertains to woman is
foreign to the business of the confer
ence, and this comprehensiveness of
plan, involving a review of what has
boon accomplished in all lines of
development, gives to tho gathering ii
cheerful and congratulatory tone,
which might he wanting if political
conditions alono wero considered.
It was on Tuesday that Philanthro
pies; were discussed. The subject of
temperance, coming under this head,
brought upon the stage many womon
noted for their work in this cause, Miss.
Francis Willanl, tho prcnidont of ono
of the most wonderful organizations
that ever sprang into existence, lead
ing with a strain of eloquence which
held her audience in chains, broken
only by applause. She mentioned that
there were now forty district depart
ments and ten thousand unions. Said
sho: "Wo have tharpened our wea
pons in sight of the enemy, and they
are about ground to uu edge. Wo
want a national prohibition amend
ment against the liquor tin Hie, the Esau
and Ishmaclito, tho cncial pariah of
Hannah Whitehall Smith, another
woman known throughout the coun
try for her share in gospel temperance
work, diplomatically inveigled her au
dience into indorsing en r.iaasr a reso
lution calling tho governments of tho
civilized world to protect tho Congo
Free State from the Hood of poisonous
gin which is being poured in upon tho
unsuspecting and bibulous natives.
This resolution was adopted unani
mously, tho good lady refraining from
calling a negative vote, on tho ground
Mint it would bo an insult to supposo
that any one present would veto no.
Tho public buildiiiL's all over tho city
are again draped with cmbloms of
mourning, this time for Justice Waito,
tho late Chief Justice of the United
States. The Waite obsequies, which
were simple but imposing, took plnco
on Wednesday at noon, in tho hull of.
House of Beprcsontutives. Thoy wero
attended by both Houses of Congress
and tho higher government ofllcials
who occupied tho Hour of tho House,
white tho galleries were filled with tho
families of i-onatorsaiid representatives
two tickets of admission having been
issued to each senator and member of
congress for distribution. The re
served galleries, such as the president's
the press and tho diplomatic, wero oc
cupied by those for whom they aro sot
In tho senate, on Monday, a bill ap
propriating $5,000 to defray tho funer
al expenses of the late chief justice waa
passed without a debate. His. roniains
were sent to Toledo, accompanied by
six of the Associate Justices, a Con
gressional committee and part of the
Ohio delegation in Congress, ,
It is probable the Hotu-o will begin
debate on the Mill's tarill' bill to-day
and Miat the discussion will last until
tho last of May, when tho measure will
either be defeated or passed by that
body, Fiom prexont Indications it
would not bo safe or wise to venturo &
