their labor. *

When the leaders of this great movement met in St. Louis during the past week as a part of the conference of Chartties snd Cor-

“*There’s no use tryin’ to save this land, ‘cause it’s bound to migrate sooner or later, and I had better let it roll off without a crop than to lose all that work,’ was the reward for my advice.”

“T-rode 17 miles almost straight up a mountain slope one day to get permission for a pretty

I went to Cincin- nati and got a free scholarship from the society to entitle the girl to attend my school free. When I went back to that home, this was the answer I got from the girl’s father:

‘“*T don’t see no use in gals goin’ to school. I never had no scheelin’, and Sal (his wife) didn’t either. We don’t believe in this new-fangled eddi- cation.’

HE Consumers’ League, which has for its #4 objects the amelioration of conditions of

women and girls working in shops, stores and workrooms; the abolition of sweatshop and tenement work, with. their attendant disease- producing and disease-spreading agencies, finds its aims more than sympathy provoking.

So much g0 that one wonders how any interest of employer or shopper can resist its appeal.

Surely it would be seen, in view of the general gorgeousness of department stores and other places Where women shop, that no prosperous merchant could grudge $6 a week for the energy and all the working hours of each human ma- chine so necessary to his :transactions.

Yet, the Consumers’ League,*présumably, tnclud- ing in its membership men and women of wealth and power, producing sympathy, have produced but little action, since they,still ardently cry for such concessions as a minimum wage of $6 for women over 18, a maximum working day of 10 hours in all states.

Just why so little has been accomplished is graphically explained when one listens to Mrs. Florence Kelley's description of only a few. of the obstacles encountered on the uphill journey she has led the*Consumers’ Leazue.

This determination to be “unhappy’”’ and a “‘poetess’’ was overcome by fill- ing her life full of the poetry of work and sympathy, according to Mrs. Fal- coner’s statement. She was simply homesick for her old life.

president of the conference

Mi Iss JANE ADDAMS, retiring and head of the house, Chica-

|/go, says that children are naturally

as various as human life itself, and

| that the methods of reclaiming way-

ward children must be based upon

‘the individual characteristics of each

child. Miss Addams believes that the prob- lems confronting those who undertake

to save the children, and thus insure

the perpetuity of America, can best be

illustrated by several anecdotes which ‘she has collected during her years of

work among the children of the Chi- cago slums.

‘‘A sense of humor always is of value to the reformer,” she asserts. “Once I heard of a teacher who had just taken charge of a certain school for bad boys. They résolved to humiliate him. Com- ing into the room one day he found written on the blackboard: ‘Our teacher is a dohkey.’ He wasn’t quite that, and he proved it. Walking to the board, he added the word ‘driver.’ That settled the boys.
