THE ARDMORE FEDERATION
Business and Pleasure Made up
Interesting Pi I HI——Roy-
The fift-h annual meetine of the Fed-
«-ratiou of Women's clubB of the two
territories, which closed a four day*'
session at Ardmore, I T., on the Oth,
was one of the most successful in the
history of the organization. If the
spirit of the late lamented president,
Mrs Selwyn Douplas, looked down
upon that body of erirneut. womanly
women she surel,\ fell gratified to know
hat her work was being so ably car-
A prodigious amount of work has
been done by Mrs. J. C. Robberts
since she succeeded to the presidency
one year ago. She found club mat-
ters in a chaotic state consequent
upon the deaths of the president. Mrs.
Douglas, and the secretary. Mrs.
Amos Ewing, both having oocurred
within a few months preceding the an-
nual meeting of 1902. Mrs Kobberts
has devoted her whole time to the
work of the federation the past year
and she has every reason to feel satis-
lied with the result of ber efforts. Not
only has the scope of ttwMoritlM
been enlarged by the addition of sev-
eral new departments, but there is a
feeling of enthusiasm throughout the
body which promises well for the
future Mrs. Robberts has won the
warm admiration of all club women
Mrs. Demies T. S Denison. of New
York city, president of the General
Federation of the Fniu d States, was
present throughout the meeting, and
she toid the assemblage that the fed-
eration of the twin territories com-
pares very favorably with those of
any other part of the country.
The people of Ardmore entertained
with unbounded hospitality. All of
those attending were given free enter-
tainment in the homes of the city, and
Ardmore is a city of beautiful homes,
or at the hotels of which two are first
class, the Morgan and the Whitting-
ton. Elks hall, containing a large
assembly room, three handsome par
lors and a spacious dining room, was
placed at the disposal of the federa-
tion and all of the general meetings
were held there. The city has also a
new 420,000 opera house, the use of
which was tendered and two of the
evening sessions were held there, the
building being packed each time, which
showed the interest that Ardmore p o-
ple took in the proceedings. The city
had made every preparation for the
entertainment of her guests, who w ill
always hold in grateful remembrance
her beautiful spirit of hospitality.
The first session was held at Elks
hall Tuesday eveniug. Mrs. llobberts
called the meeting to order and the
following program was carried out:

a welcoming address, had been called
out of the city, but his place was very
ably tilled by Mr. Furman. All of the
addresses and responses overflowed
with wit fend eloquence A reception
followed. The parlors were beauti-
tifully decorated with southern moss,
chrysanthemums aud roses. Ardmore
has a greenhouse, which would do
credit to a city of 25,000, and there
was a profusion of as tine flow-
ers of these two varieties as we
ever saw anywhere The assemblage
was a brilliant one, the jieople of the
city turning out in large numbers in
full dress. Punch was served through-
out the evening, the table being ar-
ranged in a iieautiful chrysanthemum
bower. Ice cream uiuf cake were
served in the dining room, pink car-
nations forming the souvenirs.

After a piano Bolo by Miss Floye
Alvis of Ardmore, Mrs. G. B Longan
of Kansas i'it\ fuve M ladies a par-
liamentary drill, lasting two hours.
It was a practical demonstration of
the advantages of a knowledge of par-
liamentary law and was one of the
most useful numbers on the program.
