That valiant - hearted. indefatigable
worker in the woman's cause, the Hev,
Dr. Anna Shaw, is otico more out upon
her travels, and undergoing arduous
a campaign as any soldier In the time
of war. For she Is no longer youtiB, and
her plan of action 1 as strenuous and

Every night, from September i till No

continue to address, large meetings, mid
here comes the salient point in a differ

South Dakota, with all its towns; then

sometimes Sliss Shaw speaks as often
as six thins in one da v.
On her arrival at unii town, the follow

in thv morning, somewhat exhausted after
her four and a half day.-i' train Journey,
and was informed that she was to ad

THE NEW BASQUE GIRDLES WITH LONG SLEEVES
BEFORE TPIE SANDMAN COMES
THE CARDINAL'S BREAKFAST
AS YOU sit down to the nice brcak
f X fast of fruit and cereal, and may
be a poached ckr on toast, did
it ever occur to you lo wonder what
the birds arc eating for bicakfast at
this very minute? Of course, you
know they cat worms and grubs and
insects, but perhaps they like cereals,
too. Notice some time when you arc
walkiiiK where birds arc and see if
you can find some that cat (grains and
seed as well as worms.
The pretty little .scarlet cardinal
that makes such a gay streak as he
Hies across the garden likes seeds
very much better than giubs and
worms, and if you throw out wheal,
he will surely visit your garden. In
the seed time of the year, when every
plant in the garden has its own little
pods of seed, you need not throw out
any bait, as he is wise enough to come
there and help himself of the feast
that Nature has spread for him.
All summer long a certain cardinal
had kept his eyes on a very beautiful
garden. Some day he was sure he
would get some extra line food from
that garden. Above all, he had his
eye on the big tall sunflower way back
at the end of the yard. Early in sum
mer, this sunflower was a lovely big
blossom, so big and cheerful and sun
ny did he look that he made the
whole garden seem like one big smile.
Hut now the sunflower's big goldy
petals were all dried up and blown
away, and the soft velvety centre was
dry and hard with big fat seeds.
You would think the (lower was
prettiest when m blossom but the
cardinal wouldn't agree with you. lie
didn't care a bit about a blossom
but a dead blossom full of seeds
that's different that's about the very
best thing to eat he knows of.
(lower was young was now old and
frail and easily bent.
The bird slid olf into the air.
lit en the weight of the dainty car
dinal bent the face of the old flower
to far front that the bird slid off into
"Well, well," said the ptuzlcd car
dinal, to himself and he began plan
ning what to do.
At last he decided to get them on
the fly, so he made a quick dash,
passed the llovvcr, pecking out a seed
as he vvenl.
Without slopping to even taste it,
he dropped the seed and got another,
and then another, till several seeds
lay 011 the ground by the llovvcr.
Then he daintily alighted on the
ground and ate his fine breakfast in a
leisurely and gentlemanly fashion.

For days he watched the acnU dr
up with a soft peck he would test
them, but no they were not quite
right, and with a whisk and a song
he flew away.
But finally a morning came when
the seeds were just right and he de
cided to stay for breakfast.
