. The neat home of the P. L. F. club

completed during the present year at
Garden and Holly streets, has brought
this organization prominently before
the public. It was the second such
club house erected in the. state of
Washington, stands as a monument to
the enterprise of its builders and
makes the club take a recognized place
as an institution in the life of the
community. With the Aftermath now
constructing a home on extensive
scale at West Holly street and Broad-
way, Bellingham will be able to boast
two of the best edifiées of the kind in
the northwest.

The P. L. F. club was organizedA

September 8, 1900 with seven charter
members, Mrs. W. H.’ Axtell, Mrs. L.
H. Darwin, Mrs. C. S. Roray, Miss Nel-
lie' Lee, Miss Mabel Donovan, Miss Ida
Agnes Baker, and Miss Catherine
Montgomery. It was federated with
the state federation of women’s clubs
October 20, of the same year, and was
incorporated under the laws of the
state of Washington September 4,
1904. At the close of its first year
its membership had grown to thirty-
nine; at present its number is fifty.

One of the leading events in the so-
cial world of the present week has
been the sale of Mexican fancy work
and other articles, carried on by mem-
bers of the c ub at their home. This

has been largely attended and the'

means of producing considerable rev-

most economical and effective way is
the keynote to success in the united
efforts of women. A live club must
not only do good literary work, but
must be a potential factor in mould-
ing public opinion and must be inter-
ested in the sociological and humani~
tarian development of the communi-
ty in which it exists, otherwise it has
only half fulfilled its mission.

“It is natural to expect from the al«
truistic work of club women immediate
tangible results. This .is such a give
and take world, that club women
should be willing to sow for others to
reap.y Ethical changes cannot be
shown like a sum in arithmetic with
the right answer at the end of the
book. In short, Mrs. Burdett’s definia

only to the P. L. F. club members but
to all sister, organizations as well:

“ A true club woman is not a sel—
fish, self—seeking, emotiOnal, tangent
woman, but rather the gracious, home
loving, humanity loving, thoughtful,
patriotic, woman citizen, working ever
toward better things.”

“Club work is oft times strenuous,
but when busy housekeepers, society
women, -authors, artists, musicians,
teachers, etc., all meet together in the
study of child-life, science, literature,
history, art, civics, household econo-
mies, language and religion, all rea—
soning together with tolerance and
liberality for each other’s opinions, all
this certainly means something for the
future culture (it a nation—for it must
be instrumental in making all our
women citizens larger in their ideas
broader in their sympathies, nobler
in their work.”

present are, Mrs. A. M. Muir, presi-

tion of a club5‘-WOman’s applies not'
















enue to apply on the investment of the
building. The cozy interior of the
little house was never made more at—
tractive than it is at 'the present

The motto of the P. L. F. club is,
“The world is advancinc'. Advance
with it.” The letters P. L. F. by the
way, stand for Progressive, Literary
and Fraternal. In discussing the his—
tory of the building and the progress
of the club, Mrs. W. H. Axtell, presi-
(tellL of the society for the first three
years of its existence, and now presi-
dent of the business incorporation,
said that it was found impossible to
carry on successfully the two phases of
the work, literary and altruistic, with-
out a club house. Failing in its effort
to secure a union building which
might be used by the various wom-
en’s organizations of the city, as is
done in many communities, it under-
took the erection of the modest P. L.
F. clubhouse, now completed.

“It is hoped by our members,” said
Mrs. Axtell, “ that many women with-
in and without the club may derive
much pleasure and profit from the
building and that it may become the
center of many educational and phil-
anthropic influences. <
“The Industrial School’s kindergar-

ten olass now finds. within the blub
rooms a most desirable place for work
and the club hopes to extend its use-
fulness far beyond the limits of its
own membership.

and best composers. The orchestra of
fifteen pieces was well balanced and
numbered several most gifted young
musicians. The celebrated Marino
soon won the audience, and was ex-
ceedingly gracious in responding to
encores. After his second number, he
was repeatedly recalled and finally
responded with a beautiful selection
given without accompanimnt.

The performers and those in the
audience who wished not to lose a
note of the music, were repeatedly
annoyed by talking and moving about
during the playing of numbers. Some
strict measure should be adopted by
the management of theaters, to pro-
tect those who pay their money and
desire the benefit of the full perform-
ance. Whispering should be strictly
prohibited and no person should'be
allowed to walk down an aisle dur-
ing a number at a musical perform-
ance. To a finely organized musical
temperment one might as well beat,
loudly on a tin pan. '

The spirit of Thanksgiving is here.
As {1711 seasons have their atmosphere
of sentiment, pleasure. and anticipa—
tion, sureiy the Thanksgiving time,
the close forerunner of still a hap—
pier time——the ChriStmas tide———is tru—
ly all that its name implies.

The hearts of the people are drawn
together by invisible threads of good-
wnl and thankfulness, that grow into
a strong cord of reverence that binds
us all in one great Thanksgiving har-

There is a grand, common impulse
that sweeps the heart of our land at
this time to worship. VVe' remember
all our benefits—the ceaseless loving-
kindness that follows our often way-
ward footsteps. We remember our
golden harvests, the peace within our
borders—\ve remember friends—love
—-—our mothers and God! W'e seek
the sacred portals of' the church, and
here, while the stately lily and chrys-
anthemum lift their purity all un—
afraid to Heaven, we bow our heads
in humble thankfulness, but with
hearts lifted with the certainty of the
flowers, thatour offering is accepta—
bie and well pleasing in the sight of
Iiim who delights in giving to His
children, ’

The Home Gathering on Belling-
ham Bay can afford to be one of the
most joyfu1 in all the land. Can we
name anything, that we do not pos-
sess? Our state is one of the greatest.
There is gold and precious metals in
our hills, fish in our seas, forests of
wealth and plains waiting for habita-
tion to make them a garden of Eden.
We are sons of affluence in many ways.
Our snow capped mountains, our pur—
“pie isles, our sunsets,‘are beautiful
beyond words. Our roses are still
clambering over our verandas in a
riot of joy, their branches heavy-la—
den with bloom and bud!


And then our people are treasures
——they have the sunshine of good—will
and friendship in their faces. They-
are charitable, not only in theory, but
in practice profoundly respecting
personal intellect and moral convic—
tion. In the great west we have rug-
gedness, strength of originality,
breadth and height. And the people
are Westerners,

Our houses are not yet built cheek
by jowl, we all have a front yard
where we can exercise and plant ros-
es. And We are thangful.

You have all heard the story about
the ambitious young man that marj
ried a pretty wife, placed her in a‘
comfortable home and then went out
in the world to make a fortune of
dollars. He was gone day and night
for many years engrossed with his
work. His wife complained, but he
was always busy. In ten years he
came home a wealthy man to enjoy
his own fireside, but his wife was buSy
with other interests. The sweet affec-
tion of their early youth could not be
revived—a golden time was forever

\Vell, Pietro Marino was here
Thursday evening and Bellingham
was busy. “\Vhat is the particular
loss,” says one, “that you make so
much fuss about it-—even.if he was
the most wonderful, of artists?”

It would be difficult, I am afraid,
to make this questioner understand
his loss. ’ .

Any good and great influence beat-
ing upon the soul, whether it comes
through a beautiful picture, a har-
mony of tones in music, beauty or
kingly and tender words of kindness
“is a wonderful gain. It is refining,
enobling and brings us the deepest
and greatest enjoyment.

In this-Jousy day of work and ac-
tiOn, we often have to make a real ef-
fort to find time for the really good
things. It is more essential for our
aesthetic nature to be sustained, than

it is for us to have our ,daily dinner.
VYe are complex, and must have all
we need, or we will dwarf in what-
ever function is neglected.

Even if no deeper need is felt, it is
fashionable to be cultured to hear
and see the best. in art; this should
not appeal in V'iin. ,

Marino is a wonderful artist. His
temperment and personality seems to
partake largely of the harmony of
music—he is one with his art. His
face is ideally poetic—beautiful as a
Murillo dream, under the inspiration
of his work. This Marino can draw
your soul into another world by the
exquisite sweetness and purity of his
musical expression—he can also show
you that he is sure enough, man and
