JUST THE NEIGHBORHOOD
The Willing Workers’ Club, a
rural club of women in Andrew
County, Missouri, expended $2,-
200 in less than a year on road
building It is preparing1 now to
build a consolidated high school
with experimental station and
agricultural deparrment. It has
inaugurated an annual potato
day in the schools, when vege
tables of all kinds are brought
together for those who have
none. It has an annual canning
day, when members bring their
surplus apples to make into apple
butter for those who have none.
It has indoor picnics in winter
and outdoor picnics in summer,
with lectures hy inventors, edu
cators, engineers and editors.
It has a union Sunday school.
No Willing Worker gossips or
listens to gossip. There is no
unkind criticism. At the quilt
ings in Andrew County the sew
ing is not all equally good, but it
has come to be a tradition that
all the stitches that can lie criti-
ciz d are those taken by the
president, Mrs. W. H. Thomas,
whose ideals have taken shape
in tin's club.
There are a good many secrets
in Andrew County since the
Willing Workers came into ex
istence. A neighborhood spirit
brought the club into existerce,
but a genuine family spirit lias
been born, and to this spirit,
working with delicate tact, is
due the secret acts the Willing
Workers will not have them call
ed charity or philanthropy, hut
just the little lifts that enabled
one Andrew County invalid to go
to a hospital for treatmet t long
needed; another to undergo an
expensive operation ; a whole
family to be shod and clothed
and perhaps fed under a crucial
period in the family’s finances;
a boy to receive surgical help
following an accident. The dues
of the club are live cents a month
if the member can aiTord it: but
if she cannot no one ever knows.
"Why. no,” said a member of
the Andrew County dub, "w e
haven’t done very much just
developed the neighborhood spirit
that is lying more or less ¡¿U in

“AN INCIDENT OF SUMMER”
(W ritten by a college student)
One beautiful dav in dune the
call of the woodland enticed me
from the wearisome city. As I
strolled in the shady paths the
perfurve r»f crol ferns at rl grats,
wild flovo-s and evergreens, ac
cmnnaniod ever;- breath of the
woodland =• it*. The natural soli
tude of the forest was broken
only hy the birds in bush and
treetop singing the joyful melo
dies of June time. The soft,
warm sunbeams, pe^pint thru
here and there as if watching
me, seemed to be saving, ” M.v
city-weary friend, lie down on
the soft cool grass and enjoy to
the full the peaceful quiet of the
wood'and, and I will sooth thee
to slumber while the birds sere
nade thee with the songs of sum
mer.” Obeying, I soon found
myself fairly hypnotized hy the
soothing magic of the pear ful.
restful stillness, the pi- asing
odor of the woodland air and
the warmth of the sunbeams.
I drifted into the mesmeric mys
teries of Dreamland with the
music of the forest serenaders a
sweet memory, blending into my
dreams. Suddenly my perfect
slumber was shattered ! A jar
as of a mighty earthquake shook
the very earth and sky ! A roar
that vibrated thru the air as by
a thousand cannon deafened mv
drowsy ears! As I was desper
ately trying to gather my senses,
a wounded Chinese pheasant fell
ju>t twenty feet beyond me. the
victim of an illegal shot. I was
the victim though a lucky one,
of the magic speil of th? wood
land in June.
