Massachuesetts Manufacturer Moved
to Action by Pleadings of Woman
Who Is Devoting Life to Cause
of Women Workers.
Doston Mass. Moved by the earn-
est pleadings of a woman who Is de-
voting her life to the cause ot work-
ing girls a Back Hay Jewelry manu-
facturer has decided to give up his
luxuriously furnished residence for
use of thoso girls who have no home
of their own.
If his experiment proves successful
fellow manufacturers will either adopt
the same plan or will contribute gen-
erously to a fund for the erection of
a home for the accommodation of all
working girls In tho community who
live a long distance from their work
and cannot go home dally.
E. A. Sweeney of Attlcboro Is the
man and his residence at 9 School
street will be occupied by 14 working
girls early in tho fall.
This home Will bo in charge of the
Methodist Episcopal church of Attlc-
boro but it will bo conducted along
undenominational lines and every at-
tempt will bo made to Hecure all pos-
sible comforts for girls employed in
Attleboro who havo their homes else-
whero. The opening of Mr. Sweeney's resi-
dence as a homo for working girls
will represent the fruition of the plans
of Miss Margaret Eckley deaconnesa
of the Methodist Episcopal church
who for the last flvo years has en-
deavored in every way to help tho
working girls of Attleboro. She has
gathered statistics which show that
many hundreds of girls employed In
tho great Jewelry shops of Attleboro
come from other parts of Now Eng
land and from tho provinces and it
has been hor constant effort to make
thoso girls as comfortable as possible
under tbo circumstances.
Miss Eckley has succeeded In rais-
ing BUfflclent money to guarautco that
tho homo for working girls will bo
conducted for at least one year. It Is
planned to mako tho home self-sup.
portting and each of tho girls will pay
for her enre.
The undertaking Is backed financial
ly by prominent Attleboro manufac-
turers who are greatly Interested In
the plan and who aro willing to do
their full shnro In' making It a suc-
cess. Tho present home Is merely an
oxperlment It It Is successful others
wU be established and there Is a
good possibility ot a big home being
erected and conducted on Young
Women's Cbilstian association prin-
ciples. "I would llko It understood at tho
outset" said Miss Kckloy "that our
home will be only for girls ot good
moral character. Our efforts aro to
encourage them to lead Christian
lives and for that purpose we want
to provide them with a home where
they will huvo ovcry comfort and will
be subject only to uplifting Influence!
ROOSEVELT ON THE COWCATCHER.
On his Journey up country by the Uganda railway from Mombata Mr.
Roosevelt made frequent use of the "cowcatcher" in company with Lieut.
Gov. Jackson and the traffic manager of the line.
Instructed to pay It over tho moment
Mr. Kaufman was congratulated
again and again for his promptness
In seeking the owner of the pocket-
book but said that It was not a now
thing to him. "I have had a htore
here for about eight years" he said
"but before that I kept on West street
near the Pennsylvania railroad ferry.
Once a farmer came in and bought
something tobacco I think and after
"There uro thousands of girls em-
ployed In Attleboio shops. Of course
many of them llvo hero and are tho
daughters of our cltlz as but there Is
a large number who como from tho
provinces and from Maine wheio
there Is but little employment for
girls and who are without a home
until they have enough money to
bring their families hero. Attlcboro
Is as kind as any placo in the world
to working girls but In spite of that
thero aro many girls who havo only
a baro room In which to live."

perhaps also becauso Luclllo hersulf

Percy more than If ho were moro ro-

you aro well taken care of."
"Certnlnly darling" replied Percy

Luclllo left the room. and In a mo-

Percy quailed slightly beforo the

TRAPS HER LITERARY LIONS.
The Telephone Used by One Hostess
as Means ot Obtaining Guett
The hostens loved to havo tbe sort
of guests that she described na "men
that did something" and her specialty
was literary tollers. They seemed to
her mind to represent moro real activ-
ity than any other occupation al-
though she was not averse to an occa-
sional singer or piano pounder.
It was a devoted friend who used
to gather tho literary big bugs for her.
This was tho somewhat disingenuous
way that ho did t.:
"Ho uacd to call updn tho telcphono
any celebrity who happened to be In
town at tho time and invito Tlm to
luncheon without -mentioning the.
uamo of tho lady. Even literary lions
occasionally object to entering al-
though under tho chaperonago ot
friends tho homes ot persons thoy
havo never met.
"All right." tho literary friend of
tho hostess would say over the tele-
phone when tho Invitation wan ac-
cepted. "Then I'll expect you at one.
Don't forget tho number." Then fol
lowed a perfectly unintelligible lot of
Bounds which wero -In reality the
namo of the hostess so mispro-
nounced by tho speaker that the guest
had no idea where ho was really
going "Ho there at 1. nark Swain

"I went there" said ono Hon who
ncceptcd such an Invitation over the
telephone "and found myself in a
beautiful hpuso with servants In liv-
ery and nn air. of great wealth and
taste about everything. I suppooscd I
was In a club but wondered how a
club could bo so unusual.
"1 found In the drawing room two
friends and tho gnetleman who had in-
vited me. Thu other twu men did not
seem to know any moro about the
houso than I did.
"When tho hostess came In very
beautifully dressed and very delight-
ful to talk to thoy wero Introduced
to her Just as I was. Wo had a very
good time but none ot us three bad
ever mot tho lady before."
So It Is not difficult to have a repu-
tation for literary luncheons when ono
has a friend who ean collect tbe
guests so easily even if thoy are not
suro Just whero thoy are rolng.
Tho pedigree of soma Aran horse
may be traced back for 2000 years.
