Just iuside the main entrance of the 1
Panama Pacific Exposition is a build
ing erected for the use and comfort of
the thousands of women who will visit
San Francisco during the exposition.
Two years ago the National Board of
the Young Women's Christian Associa
tions were invited by the officials of the
exposition to erect and equip a suitable
structure. The result is a beautiful
building iu the south gardens, facing
the Towel of Jewels. It is directly to
the left of the Scott street gateway
where it w ill he convenient for \ isitors
entering or leaving the grounds.
An Information Bureau
There is an information bureau in
I the center of the main lobby where it
can be seen the moment one enters the
i building. A staff of trained women is
|in attendance. The visitor who wants
; to know about train schedules or car
j service, or the woman who is anxious
to find a good place to board near the
, exposition, will be given the desired in
formation. Facts about the city and
: bay region will be furnished here. Di
i rectories of the exposition officials and
! employes, of churches and social service
i agencies will be available for all who
, apply. An emergency service and a
j trained nurse are part of the equip
! liieut of this department.
On this same tloor is a large quick
service lunch room, where both men and
women can obtain well cooked food at
I moderate prices. Five hundred people
j can be seated here at one time. A
; mezzanine balcony extends around the
j room, and from the tables laid here
j one can overlook the south gardens and
the lagoon. The Towel of Jewels is
only a short distance away and the I
central features of the wonderful il
| lamination scheme are within a stone's
; throw. The view from these windows
will make the balcony tables most de- i
• sirahle. Aside from the regular lunch
J and supper there is an afternoon tea
I service. This lunch room is [lartieularly
I convenient for the people attending
I programs in Festival Hall.
Reading aud Writing Rooms
There are comfortable reading and
writing rooms .just off the main lobby
where strangers in the city may read
; the news from their own home paper, or
j write a letter to their friends.
: On the second floor is an assembly
room which seats two hundred and fifty
■ people. Motion picture apparatus has
been installed. This hall is available
I without charge for suitable organ iza-
I tions desiring to use it for conferences
and meetings. Many organizations
, whose work is educational in character
or along lines of social service will hold
j sessions in this building. It has been
| estimated that an average of three or
| four conventions a day will meet in
San Francisco during the exposition
year. Many of these will be of especial
j interest to women.
I*>ndon, Feb. 27, 3.18 P. M.—The
Austrian advance in Eastern Galieia
has lieen checked ani the Russians,
driving back their opponents, have re
captured Sianislau and Kolomea, ,-avs
the '• Evening News" in a telegram
from Hertza. Rumania.
Heavy fighting preceded the recap- |
ture of these two towns. The Russians
occupied Stanislau yesterday. Ad
vancing from that ;>oint they attacked j
the Austrian position at Kolomea. Tae
Austrians offered determined reli
ance, but. the "Evening News" says,
finally were forced to give way.
Although it has been reported un
officially that the Austrians had cap
tured Stanislau, as is indicated by the :
foregoing, no such admission had been 1
made by the Russian War Office. Siau
islau. situated 75 miles southeast of
Ijemberg, is a pivotal point iu the cam
paign of the Austrians to recapture the 1
province of Galieia. Recent reports in- 1
dicated that they had made consider
able progress.
Paris,-Feb. 27, 5.40 A. M.—The
French press is unanimous in declaring
that Great Britain cannot accept the
informal proposals, said to have been
made by the United States that the
embargo on foodstuffs for Germany be
raised provided Germany abandons her
intention of destroying merchuntships.
The papers, however, express apprecia
tion of the spirit in which the proposals
were made.
The "Matin" declares such a step
would be carrying altruism altogether
too far because "every loaf which a
civilian was able to spare was a loaf
the more for a soldier: in other words,
the allies are asked to continue the war
and sacrifice the lives of their soldiers
in order to save German civilians from

Y. W. C. A. Planning Program
The Young Women's Christian As
sociation is planning a strong program 1
of speakers drawn from its own ranks i
and also from prominent men ami worn-1
en whose work is related to the broader 1
lines of association activities. Problems
in home economics, hygiene, physical
training and recreation, questions of
thrift and efficiency and kindred sub- \
jeets are to be listed for discussion.
Films picturing actual association
work are to be thrown on the screen
!daily. In ad>litiou to the motion picture
and stereoptieon exhibit, the halls of j
the building both upstairs and down!
will display the winning models—the j
results of a nation wide contest. All
over the eouutrv the girls of the city 1
associations have been working to com- |
pete for national prizes. Awards will
jbe made for the best business girl's
costume. The decision will be based ,
upon suitability, economy and work
manship In the department of thrift
and efficient'/, budgets will be shown

lated to conserve health of body and
miiul, to provide tor moderate recrea
tion and to save up for the future, i
There will be awards for atories, songs, i
short articles, photographs and original
Big Help to Girl Employes
The building on the exposition ;
grounds is more than a center of in
formation and exhibit of work done
elsewhere. It is a real Young Women's
IChristian Association at work. A
trained worker will give full time to the
girls and women employed at the big
fair. There will be between two and
three thousand of these girls. They
juiust be aided iu securing trustworthy
living accommodations.
The exposition officials have asked
ithe association to look after any girls
jwho arc discharged from the various
concessions. They have said that if
some probation scheme is arranged
whereby the difficulty with the girl can
be remedied, there will be the possibil
itv of reinstating her. If she should be
permitted to drift out into 'lie city
alone and discouraged, she would be
open to every sort of temptation. It
is the intention of the Young Women's
christian Association to offer friend
ship and practical help through its sec
retaries and members. Wholesome rec
reation and relaxation is to be provided.
There are to be evening classes in
salesineuship, bookkeeping, typing, and
stenography conducted in the associa
tion building. They will be open to
employes of the exposition at a nom
inal cost. A club room offers au oppor
tunity for social gatherings, and a
series of taiks on hygiene, dress and
comfort will be open to the girls who
wish to attend.
As the only strictly woman's build
ing on the grounds, it is expected that
it will be in constant use and dn. a
igenuiue and much-needed service.
Man Who Prayed for Bread on Third

Saturday morning and prayed in his 1
language for a crust of bread. His a - 5

the woman called a policeman and the!
man was locked up.
He was thought to be a Turk as the j
word "Allah" was frequently use! in
his ambling talk. It was discovered
in jail that he was almost starved to

came out. He was sent to his brot'.ier

He can understand no KnglisJi and his j
lot was a hard one. His hands and 1
feet froze during his wanderings.
When he got to Harrisburg he was
crazed from hunger and prayed for a j
crust of bread. Nobody could under

First Legislative Assembly Met at
Jamestown, Va., In 16i9.
The lirst representative legislative
assembly over held in Amelia! eon
: veiled at Jamestown. Vu.. In .Inly. 1(51'.',
|n year before the pilgrims Itindtd at
Plymouth ami a decade before the
Massachusetts I'. iv colony wns begun.
It couslxted of the Sir George
Yeardley. Ins council. two burgesses
elected by each of the eleven Incorpo
rated plantations. The assembly sat in
tile chancel of tile little church where
tlve years before Pocahontas had been
married to John IJolfe. John Twine,
the clerk of the assembly, says in his
official report:
"The most convenient place we
collide Undo to sitt in was the quits
of the church where Sir George Yeard
! ley, the goveruour. being sett down iu
'■ his neeustomrd place, those of the
; counsel of estate sate nexte him on
I both handes. txcejile onely the secre
tary. then appointed speaker, wiio sate
right before hltu, John Twine, clerks
j of the general assembly, being placed
neste the speaker, and Thomas I'lerse,
the sergeant, standing at the liarre, to
be ready for any service the assembly
should require. But forasmuch as
men's affairs doe little prosper where
I God's service is neglected, all the bur
i gesses took their places in Ihe quit#
till a prayer was saiil by Mr. Bueke,
i the minister, thattit would please God
I to guide and sanctlße all our proceed
ings to his owne glory and the goods
of this plantation."—St. Paul Pioneer
Teliing the Time of Day by a Lamp or
an Oil Flask.
Do you know that every miner wb-n
descending into she pit to work takes
with him a couple of clocks? These
are not ordinary timepieces, for they
have neither wheels, springs, dials nor
any of the usual appurtenances. The
i "clocks' are simply his lamp and oil
flask. By noting the quantity of oil
consumed-or that left—the miner can
tell to within a few minutes any hour
of the day or night.
When a miner's lamp goes out, as it
not infrequently does, in almost any
circumstances he not relight it
himself. Instead, though he may be
left iu pitch darkness, he must gro|M»
| his way to the lamp cabin or to some
other point where he can obtain tlie
proper assistance. He does the "grop
ing" with his hands, stooping down
until lie touches the train' lines along
which the coal is taken, and sliding
j his bauds along the metal until he
reaches his destination or meets some
| one going In the same direction.
A coal hewer's earnings depend on
the weight of coal he gets and also on
; the number of fathoms cut. A cubic
yard of coal weighs about eighteen
hundredweight, and the outstretched
arms of an average man extend to
I about one fathom. By these measure
ments. independent of the official ones,
each man can roughly calculate his
earnings for any particular "shift."—
Loudon Tit-Bits.
Investigating His Credit.
I "Say. Brooks, can I borrow a little
I Money from you until next pay day?"
"Why-er-yes. I suppose so. How
much do you want?"
"None at all. dear bov I only want
ed to satisfy myself that uiy credit
was good."—l.ondou Sta idard.
