It is remarkable how rapid and widespread lias Uvn the

to be a gigantic system of state and national federation, and
its influence in main directions in public atfairs must have constantly
increasing strength. In such matters as pure final and child labor legis-
lation. for example, the power of the woman's elub as a moral influence
has been distinctly felt.
The woman's club, therefore, has taught women organization of the
kind that is required to aeonipliah things in real life, and if it had done
nothing else its usefulness would be appreciated., But it has done many
One effect of its development has been the growth of a spirit of tol-
erance, particularly of religious tolerance among women. Women natur-
allv were slower than men to put aside this kind of intolerance which
existed, not only between Catholics and Protestants, but lietween the mem-
bers of the different I'roteslant denominations.
Time was when persons separated bv religious beliefs were separated
•oeiallj as well, and l inversalists could not call on I'reshvterians, or
Cougregationalistf or 1'nitarians, and so on. The woman's club has elim-
inated most of this spirit.
It has done much also toward the elimination of .-mall gossip. The
clubwoman's interest ha- l <*n developed in things rather than in persons,
in movements rather than in men and women as individuals, and thus
the discussion of trivial personalities has been siip. rs. diil bv that of mat-
ters of common and universal human interest.
The woman's club has taught women to ignore the merely conven-
tional demands of society which is always -o ureat a Ihmv where persons
without interest in 011c another are br _ it to ther under wholly arti-
ficial conditions. For this kind of "society" the clubwoman has substi-
tuted the real social enjoyment of meetin- and greet in;. 1 • r-ons of similar
tastes and sympathetic ideas.
