At the first executive session of the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board, held in September, 1891, suggestions for an exhibit were made by each member of the board. One of the many ideas advanced was a proposition to collect a copy of every book written by women of Illinois for display at the Columbian Fair, thus informing the interested as to the intellectual development of the women of the state in the year 1893.
In Illinois the committee on literature was not appointed until August of 1892, and in the meanwhile Columbian County Clubs had been organized through the efforts of the board in every county in the state, Cook County alone excepted, where the organizations of women were already so numerous that it was thought the work could be more effectually carried on through them.
The chairman of the committee on literature appealed to these clubs to secure the publications of their authors and they responded helpfully to the request for assistance.
It soon became apparent that all intellectual endeavor had not been made in the large cities. Country, villages and towns contributed to the library of nearly five hundred volumes contained in this list.
The first book written by an Illinois woman — the veteran of the collection, "Early Engagements —" bears date of 1854. Its nearest of kin, "Wau-Bun," was written in 1856; the last "Old Kaskaskia" in 1892. Forty years, hardly middle aged, is the intellectual life of woman in this state.
During this brief life almost every department of human interest has been touched upon. Many of our authors have achieved distinction, some for originality, some for their great moral or religious influence, others for fine writing and still others for scholarly research. Of this number one is a member of the Philosophical Society of London and of the International Congress of Orientalists and another of the National Society of America.
Illinois is particularly fortunate in artistic accomplishment, having several illustrators of books whose fame is national and even international; one having secured the medal at Vienna as an amateur photographer. Since then, her art has been applied to the embellishment of books. All of these are a delight to lovers of the esthetic in literature.
Education, not in the narrow "What is an island" manner of the past, but upon the broad plan of freedom and liberty for every talent of mind and grace of body, has a most desirable place in the literature of to-day in Illinois. Medicine, science, law and art have been written upon wisely and helpfully although not voluminously by our women.
Domestic science and physical culture are now receiving such attention that the celebrators of the fifth Columbian centennial should rival the models now seen only in classic art and whose perfections seem unattainable to the present generation.
Perhaps the bravest, worthiest work done by women is the manna gathered for the newspapers which nourishes and enriches all the days of our lives but is seldom crystallized into form and therefore not forming a part of permanent literature. Of these industrious writers, Illinois has an army, camped in many fields through the state, helping to keep life pure and worthy. Twenty-seven papers in the state are edited and published by women, and no large daily is now complete without woman's work. The magazine holds a place in the hearts of all its readers that
5fears no competition. Its arrival in the family is awaited with impatience and hailed with enthusiasm. To this valuable department of the reading world, the women of Illinois have added thirteen, not an unlucky number since the Declaration of Independence. For twenty years a woman in Illinois has held with dignity and marked ability the position of editor and proprietor of the official court journal of the state, The Chicago Legal News, which she founded. In this achievement, all womankind has been encouraged in strong, earnest endeavor in fields long harvested by men.
In presenting this list of the books, magazines and papers of the women of Illinois, two systems have been adopted, one alphabetical and one classified. This double method it is hoped will assist those desiring information to secure it with the least possible effort.

FRANCES L. GILBERT, Chairman.
Educational, Philanthropic and Professional Work.
Mrs. Francine E. Patton, chairman of the committee on educational, charitable and professional work, has prepared a volume of statistics showing the number of women teachers, lawyers, physicians, editors and newspaper correspondents, and the number of organizations of women engaged in philanthropic, charitable, professional and literary work. The volume for exhibit is a handsome "edition de luxe," engrossed by Miss Margaret Brooks, of Springfield, Ill., and bound by the women workers of Rokker's book-bindery at Springfield.
The accompanying preface describes the work of the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board and the manner of compilation.
To the Women of Illinois:
The Illinois Woman's Exposition Board, recognizing that woman enters largely into the educational, charitable and professional work of the world, herewith presents the results of a canvass of the state for the number of women engaged in the education of our youth, in caring for the sick, the aged and the poor, and as near as possible reporting those who are battling with life as wage earners. Through the interest and unremitting labors of the women in our County Columbian Clubs, the present volume has been made possible, and to them we dedicate this work, hoping that ere many years each and every county may send out women prepared to meet and conquer every foe to morals, religion and progress. In the smaller towns the church is the fountain of all charitable work; hence we have
noted all the mission and aid societies reported, though they are but auxiliaries of state organizations. As in all statistical work, much is overlooked, but enough is gathered to show the trend of public sentiment, and to prove that "The destiny of nations lies in the hands of woman.
FRANCINE E. PATTON, Chairman,
Educational, Charitable and Professional Work of Women in Illinois.
Several thousand copies of this volume have been prepared for free distribution.

More than a decade of years ago, when art knowledge and art education had but as light hold in the west, and when the old Academy of Fine Arts, located over a jewelry store on the corner of State and Madison streets, in the city of Chicago, was maintaining a precarious existence, there was to be found among the students a few earnest, talented young girls who were enthusiastic in their pursuit of an art education. In the fall of 1880 half a dozen of these girls met by invitation in the studio of Miss Marie Koupal, a talented young Bohemian girl, to sketch together and to encourage one another by frank and friendly criticism. These meetings were so enjoyable, and withal so helpful, that it was decided to continue them indefinitely. This informal little sketch class soon resolved itself into an equally informal little club, which dubbed itself, in compliment to the nationality of the young woman at whose suggestion it
46was founded, and also as typifying its extremely informal character, the "Bohemian Art Club." The club organized with Miss Koupal as president, but did not formulate by-laws until later on. The little club waxed and grew strong; so much so, that in the spring of 1881 it was considered advisable to adopt a constitution, which was drafted for the club by Miss Adele Fay. This constitution provided for a board of four officers, to-wit: President, vice-president, secretary and treasurer. Under this constitution Mrs. E. S. L. Adams was elected president, and held the office continuously for four years, being succeeded by Mrs. S. Van D. Shaw, Miss Ida J. Burgess, the late Mrs. Margaret MacDonald Pullman, Miss Alice D. Kellogg and Miss Pauline A. Dohn, respectively.
One of the most delightful practices of the young club was the annual summer sketching tour, when all the members went for a few weeks to some chosen spot, and worked and enjoyed life together in a truly Bohemian manner.
In the spring of the year 1882 the club gave its first public exhibition in the galleries of the new Art Institute on Van Buren street. The strength and talent evinced by that first modest little exhibit were such as to excite the astonishment and admiration of all who saw it, and encouraged the young women to renewed efforts. The second annual exhibit of the Bohemian club was a distant advance over the first one, and the precedent thus established has been faithfully adhered to, and the standard of excellence in each succeeding exhibition has been higher than that of any which has preceded, until, at the present time, the club occupies an enviable position among the professional art clubs of America.
In the year 1888 the club had attained a dignity and an importance which made "Bohemian Art Club" a misnomer, and the name was changed to "The Palette Club."
In the club's evolution from an amateur sketch class to its present professional basis, it has steadily grown in number; at present it has more than seventy members, fully one-third of whom have studied abroad, under the most celebrated masters of Paris and Munich. Of these foreign trained students, a large percentage have exhibited with credit in the Paris Salon. Of the home trained members, there are few whose names are not well-known in the more important exhibitions of America.
The little band of enthusiasts who met in Miss Koupal's studio thirteen years ago, are almost without exception, still members of the club, and among its strongest and most brilliant workers.
The records of the club being destroyed in the Athenaeum fire of April, 1892, the club adopted a new constitution, retaining the name of "The Palette Club," many of the features of the old constitution which had tended to render the club so successful, and limiting the membership exclusively to women artists. The same year the club was incorporated under the laws of the State of Illinois.

In making a representative exhibit of decorative art, the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board desires to show to advantage, not only the work of Illinois women in beaten paths, but also and more especially the advance made in new and artistic styles of work. While not neglecting the feminine occupations of fine sewing, embroidering, crocheting, knitting and needle-work of all kind, especial attention has been given to newer industries in art lines, such as ceramic paintings, leather work, pyrography, wood-carving and ecclesiastical embroidery. The beautiful samples of this sort of work will prove that Illinois is not behind her sister states or the world in artistic designs and delicate execution and furnish a new impetus to the hundreds of women now pursuing such labor with success.
It is hoped to raise both the standard and the remuneration for decorative art and to show the possibilities it contains for livelihood when followed conscientiously and with a spirit of fidelity to high ideals.

By a process of her own, she bleaches the discolored wax, sheets it and copies each flower from the living blossom, taking the latter apart petal by petal as a model for the faithful reproduction in wax, to which she gives the appropriate coloring and finish.

Department of Practical Arts.
ALICE BRADFORD WILES, CHAIRMAN OF COMMITTEE.
In considering this department as that of practical arts, it must be remembered that this classification is entirely arbitrary, having been made many months ago as a mattter of convenience in dividing the work of the board among the different committees. Thus, wood carving, painting on porcelain and plain and ornamental needlework, however "practical," were classified as "decorative;" and cooking was of such great importance as to be given a department by itself. No division not arbitrary could be made, because the natural aim of woman is to unite the practical and decorative whenever possible in all walks of life.
One of the main objects persistently followed by the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board has been to call attention to the new occupations constantly opening to women, by which they may earn their own livelihood or add to the sum of human happiness and progress. Among these, one for which woman is peculiarly fitted because of her manual dexterity and artistic taste, is photography. The board has fortunately been able to secure an interesting photographic exhibit, including specimens of work from an amateur photographer who received first diploma for distinguished excellence in the Vienna Exhibition of 1891.
The exhibit comprises the following photographs.

The Illinois Woman's Board has been greatly surprised to learn the large number of inventions patented by Illinois women, as according to common report woman is supposed to be lacking in inventive genius. The first patent granted to an Illinois woman was issued in 1864, and from that time until February 21, 1893, the two hundred and forty-nine patents in the following list have been issued to Illinois women, according to the report of the United States Patent Office. This list necessarily embraces only those women who at the time of the issue of the letters patent were residents of the State of Illinois. There are undoubtedly a very large number of women now residents of Illinois to whom patents were issued while they were residents of other states, although later they have come to Illinois, and by virtue of long residence may be justly claimed as Illinois women. It has been, of course,
96impossible to obtain a record of such inventions. The letters patent noted in the list are on exhibition, the drawings being framed and displayed, and the accompanying specifications being bound in a volume open to public inspection. These inventions range in character from sewing, cooking and nursing appliances, pertaining especially to the employments of women, to pavements, harness attachments, photographic apparatus, car couplers, hay presses, and other implements or processes for use in occupations in which women are seldom engaged.
Models of a large number of the inventions have been furnished by the patentees, and form an interesting though incomplete exhibit. Many of the inventors could not be found, and others had no models and were unwilling to incur the trouble and expense of having them prepared, especially in those cases where the terms of the patents had expired. Some of the most interesting and valuable are not represented among the models for the reason that their size and complication would have made the preparation of the models extremely expensive.

From the organization of the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board in August, 1891, the question of the proper representation at the Columbian Exposition of the manufacturing industries of Illinois women has been recognized as of great importance, and has received earnest attention. Those best informed in industrial matters have been consulted, including manufacturers, employes and the leaders of labor societies. The most satisfactory representation would have been the showing of the industries in actual operation; but this was found to be impossible because of the limited space under the control of the board. Only one-tenth of the Illinois State Building was set aside for the
110representation of the work of women, and in this small space, only 42x150 feet, the board desired to show all the industries in which Illinois women are to-day employed. The feasibility of representing the manufacturing industries in miniature was carefully canvassed, and a prize was offered through all the newspapers of the State for the best plan for such representation. Only two replies were received, and the ideas presented applied to very few industries and were impracticable for various reasons. As the number of women engaged in industrial pursuits in Illinois was known to be very large, the board was determined that, in spite of the many difficulties, some representation of these industries should be made. A most careful research, both by correspondence and personal visits, was made, in order that finished samples of the work done by women in factories might be exhibited; but the board was at once confronted by the fact that almost universally in manufacturing industries the finished products are the result of the combined labor of men and women, and that separation of these products in accordance with the sex of the workers was impossible, except in a limited number of instances hereafter mentioned. It was then decided that all the manufacturing industries in which women are engaged side by side with men should be shown by means of photography; and it was thought that this method would, in some respects, be more satisfactory than any other, as its truthful portrayal of facts could not be questioned nor denied. The fullest possible inquiries were then made in order that no factory industry might be overlooked; and the series of one hundred and eight (108) photographs, showing women in the various industries below enumerated, is the outgrowth of this plan.
This effort of the board has met with hearty co-operation on the part of the manufacturers. Free access has been granted to factories, and with few exceptions, permission has been granted
111to take such photographs as were desired, in spite of the fact that it frequently involved the stopping of machinery and always the taking of the time of the employes from work. The few exceptions have been justified by the fact that the manufacturers did not desire certain machinery or processes made public; or, oftener, that the women themselves objected to being photographed. In examining the photographs they must not be considered as an exhibit of photography, since the conditions existing in the work rooms are entirely unfavorable for fine photographic results.
In many factories in which women and girls were employed it was found that they were simply acting as clerks or typewriters and had no part in the production of manufactured articles.
Where it was found that women owned and managed the factories, and that the finished products were the result of woman's labor alone, such products are exhibited and are recorded below. A larger exhibit of this kind might have been made, but only by expenditure of vast time, effort and money in the personal investigation of the numerous factories of the State; and when this was begun it was soon discovered that the results would not be sufficiently valuable to justify this expenditure. The board has never believed that the mere fact that the worker was a woman, even if in unusual lines of industry, made the product of her labor worthy of exhibition, and when manufactured articles were selected because of their intrinsic value, as has been said, they were found to be, with very few exceptions, the result of the combined labor of the sexes.
The board is fully aware of the very great changes in the industrial position of women during the last decade, and also of the very great public interest in all questions bearing upon the subject; but this is neither the time nor the place for theorizing.
112The board simply wishes to emphasize the fact that it has made every possible effort to represent fully and justly and with strict regard to the truth of actual, every-day conditions, this very important factor in the industrial life of the present day.

ALICE BRADFORD WILES,
Active Exhibits Under the Auspices of The Illinois Woman's Exposition Board.
Realizing the great importance of calling the attention of the world to the valuable nutritive qualities of corn as a food product, the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board has made an appropriation for the daily conduct of a Corn Kitchen. In this delicious and healthful dishes are produced entirely from corn in its various preparations. While our beef and wheat are well known abroad, maize, our most abundant product, is not accepted because it requires different methods of preparation, unknown to foreign housekeepers. Ignorance upon that point is too prevalent also in our own country, and for this reason the use of the great staple of Illinois is prominently brought before the world by the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board at this time. Having secured the services of one of the most able demonstrators in cooking, Mrs. S. T. Rorer of Philadelphia, practical cooking lessons, showing the various ways in which corn products can be utilized, will be given every morning during the fair from half past ten to half past twelve in the kitchen of the Woman's Building. Hominy samp, corn meal, corn flour, corn starch, and shaved corn are used, and made into dishes both cheap, nutritious and delicious, and it is hoped by means of these practical lessons to reach a large and increasing number of housekeepers and home makers. As a supplement to this important work undertaken by the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board is the class for general cooking for children each afternoon, when twenty girls from the ages of twelve to sixteen receive practical instruction in making fires, caring for marketing and kitchen and preparing and cooking all common food stuffs. The class will be changed each month,
123thus giving instruction to one hundred girls in soup and bread making, vegetable cooking, and sauces, broiling, baking, roasting, utilizing left overs, the making of tea, coffee and cocoa, simple desserts, plain cakes, pure candies and the general managing of a meal.
Simple chemistry and hygiene are also taught. These lessons will be of infinite value throughout the entire lives of the children and help to increase the interest in domestic science and healthful food. At the close of the lessons the cooked food is distributed to those who wish to sample its excellence, and Mrs. Rorer will be glad to show samples also of the various preparations of corn, explaining the chemical properties of each to visitors, millers, supply merchants and others. The use of corn flour is at present limited, but its value can not be too widely known, and Mrs. Rorer will make a specialty of explaining it to those interested.
This building, containing this exhibit, is the gift of Mr. Harlow N. Higinbotham, of the World's Columbian Exposition, to the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board, and is located just west of the Children's Building.
As soon as the fact was known that a Woman's Building for illustrating the special work of women would be erected at the Columbian Exposition, the Illinois Training School for Nurses applied for space to make a national exhibit of the work of the training schools of the United States. This was early in the summer of 1890. As soon as assured by Mrs. Palmer that such space would be granted, the secretary of the school wrote to all of the training schools in the United States, asking them to co-operate with the Illinois Training School in making a practical exhibit of their work. All but one school replied that they would
124gladly do their share, could their expenses be paid; but unless assured that the necessary cost would be met in some way outside of their regular receipts, it would be impossible for them to do so. The one exception was the John Hopkins where the school itself held such financial relations to the hospital that the superintendent was able to accept unconditionally.
In Illinois, application had been made to the legislature to appropriate the sum necessary for a general exhibit of the industries of the state, and in response the generous appropriation of $800,000 was made, of which $80,000 was placed at the disposal of the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board for the use of the women of the state.
On September 10, 1891, the Illinois Training School for Nurses applied to said board for money to enable them to arrange an exhibit of the work of the women of the United States in medicine and nursing, through the means of a model emergency ward in the Woman's Building. In response to this request, after due consideration, the officers of the school were informed that under the instruction of the attorney-general of the state, the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board could not put any money into a national exhibit, and that whatever money it appropriated, must go solely for Illinois exhibits. As the Illinois Training School was in no condition itself to pay for an exhibit, this decision put an end to the original plan of a general union of all the training schools of the country in one exhibit. The Board of Managers of the Illinois Training School at once made a second application to the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board for $6,000 to "establish and maintain an emergency ward in the Woman's Building in which to practically illustrate the standing of the women physicians, surgeons and nurses of the state." This second application was in January, 1892, and on April 7, 1892, such an appropriation was made by the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board and a contract made by them with the Illinois Training
125School for Nurses for the purpose specified. This contract was signed June 10,1892.
At that time it was proposed to make this hospital exhibit, by means of an actual operating ward in the Woman's Building, for the use of women and children who might be taken sick on the grounds and desire the services of a female physician; and it was decided to consider the establishment and maintenance of that ward the contribution of the Illinois Board to the Woman's Building. When the final arrangements were being made, however, any kind of a hospital in the Woman's Building was found to be impracticable, on account of the great publicity and lack of drainage facilities, and, for a time, consequently, it was feared the school would be compelled to abandon the medical part of the exhibit and limit itself merely to illustrating the work of trained nurses by means of photographs, uniforms, etc.
Owing to the kindness and liberality of Hon. Harlow N. Higinbotham, however, a separate building was finally erected expressly for the purposes of this exhibit. As soon as Mr. Higinbotham's generous intention was made known, the space which had been reserved in the Woman's Building was surrendered.
In the building prepared especially for the active exhibit conducted by the women surgeons, physicians and trained nurses of Illinois, there is a model operating room with all appliances; a model diet kitchen fully equipped for hospital necessities; a model office and reception room; a section of a child's ward; a section of a woman's ward, and a private room for patients. In the latter every comfort and convenience will be found, and the best of care will be given to any women or children who may desire to apply for medical services, or who may be brought to the hospital. All three schools of medicine are represented in the attending physicians, a resident physician of each school being appointed for daily service. Volunteer physicians from each
126school of medicine will also be in attendance for varying periods during the continuance of the Fair. A head nurse will also be constantly in the building, and every training school in the state will be represented some time during the six months through one or more of their graduates, who will serve likewise for varying periods as circumstances may require.
Resident Staff of Hospital:
Dr. MARY A. MIXER, Director of Exhibit and Allopathic Physician.
Dr. EMMA C. GEISSE, Homeopathic Physician.
Dr. LAURA L. RANDOLPH, Electric Physician.
The Visiting Nurses' Association, which is one of the finest and most philanthropic enterprises in the city, and one of the results of the perfection to which the service of trained nursing has been brought, will also have a representation in the Hospital Building, and the attendant will explain their system of work among the poor of the city to all who desire such information.

The kindergarten under the auspices of this board is located in the room east of the exhibit space. Daily sessions are held from 9:30 to 12, except Saturdays, to which visitors are welcome. Forty children are in attendance.
This room was decorated under the supervision of Miss Blanche McManus.
The Froebel Kindergarten Association of Chicago are in charge during the months of May, June and July. The Free Kindergarten Association of Chicago will have charge during August, September and October.
The following reports from these two associations define their work.
Through the liberality of the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board and its appreciation of the educational value of a living kindergarten exhibit, the way was opened to the kindergarten associations of Chicago to undertake and carry forward this enterprise. The Froebel Association being responsible for the first three months, or until August first; and the Free Kindergarten Association for the last three. The ladies of the Illinois board having pledged themselves to the kindergarten immediately began the task of making full provisions for its successful conduct, appropriating for its use the very choicest portion of the space allotted to them, a grand room on the first floor, sixty feet in length and thirty feet in width, lighted by nine large windows, six looking toward the east and three toward the south. The arrangements
129of the construction of the room, its doors, windows, closets and gallery for visitors, were submitted to the kindergarten committee and the result has proved a model kindergarten room in beauty and convenience. With the luxuriant wild roses clambering over their rustic trellis in the artistic frieze above, and the happy, active children playing their simple games, assiduously devoted to their varied occupations, or singing their merry songs in the circle below with the warm sunlight streaming in over the ferns and flowers of the window boxes and illuminating the carefully chosen pictures upon the walls, the visitor has before him a "living exhibit" of that paradise of children which grand old Friedrich Froebel, by the devotion of a lifetime, developed in the kindergarten.
This kindergarten in the Illinois Building is not presented as a model kindergarten by any means, the children having been but a few months in training. It only claims to show the processes of growth, the development of the child by the occupations and organized play of the Froebel system.
The kindergartners in charge are:
Director — Miss Mary W. Jones.
Assistants — Miss Kate Carey, Miss Helen E. Starr, Miss Fanny Chapin, Miss Helen Goodrich.
The associations, both the Free and Froebel, wish gratefully to acknowledge their indebtedness to the following individuals and firms who have generously assisted in the decoration and furnishing of the room.

Mr. Scott W. Thurber, Mr. Martin O'Brien, and Mr. L. Prang, the pictures upon the walls.
For a number of years previous to the organization of the Froebel Kindergarten Association, the knowledge of Froebel's system of education had been gradually spreading in our city. By means of a visit of Miss Elizabeth Peabody to Chicago, in 1868, this interest was deepened and extended. The following year a private kindergarten was opened by Mrs. E. W. Blatchford, on the North Side, which was continued up to the time of the great fire in 1871.
In the winter of 1874 and 1875, Mrs. John Ogden, of Columbus, Ohio, was induced to come to Chicago to take charge of the newly formed training class and at the same time to conduct a kindergarten. At the end of the year Mrs. Ogden returned to Ohio, leaving the training class in the hands of Mrs. A. H. Putnam, one of her graduates.
In 1879, on June 16th, the first free kindergarten was opened by Mrs. E. W. Blatchford in the Chicago Avenue Church, with Miss S. E. Walker, who had been at the head of the primary department in the Haven School, as director, and Miss Mary W. Jones as assistant. This was the first Memorial Kindergarten in the United States.
The interest diffused through the community by these various efforts was concentrated by the organization in October, 1881, of The Chicago Froebel Kindergarten Association. The earnest women who identified themselves with this charity by their works and gifts were inspired with the purpose of reaching and helping the neglected little children in the poorer districts of the city.
This purpose has been steadily carried out and it would be impossible by any statistics to set forth the good which has resulted to the little ones themselves, and through them to their parents and their homes.
The following are the names of the first officers and managers of the association elected in June, 1882:
MRS. E.W. BLATCHFORD, President.
MRS. T.W. HARVEYVice-President.

Superintendent of Training Class, Mrs. Alice H. Putnam.
In connection with the direct work indicated above, the association has steadily kept in view the introduction of the kindergarten into the public school system, believing that when kindergarten principles and methods should be more generally understood, the public would demand their incorporation into the public schools — as only in this way can the great mass of our children be reached.
It did not seem wise to those interested in this advance movement in education to press it too urgently until there should be a trained body of kindergartners ready to meet the new demand, as the training class which was immediately established by the association could at first do little more than supply its own kindergartners. The superintendent chosen was Mrs. Alice H. Putnam, a lady whose success in similar work in the city for a period of seven years had demonstrated her rare aptitude for it. Mrs. Putnam has continued in charge of this growing work until
132the present time, and through the numerous and able graduates of her class, her name and her work have become influential in her own, and in other lands. Mrs. Putnam was for a number of years in charge of the Model Kindergarten at the Cook County Normal School, where she had the enthusiastic co-operation of Colonel Parker, the distinguished educator from Massachusetts, who made the Quincy schools so famous and gave such impetus to primary education in Boston, and who had come to Chicago to take charge of the Cook County Normal School. This identification with the normal school naturally brought the kindergarten and its methods to the notice of prominent educators, such as city and county superintendents and school principals. In this way it came about that, occasionally, when there was an unoccupied room in some public school building, the association was permitted to introduce, at its own expense, rent and care of room excepted, one of its kindergartens, and thus teachers of all grades in these schools have been made practically familiar with the principles and methods of the kindergarten system.
Progress toward the introduction of the kindergarten into the public school has been made.
A bill is now before the Illinois legislature, a local option bill, to permit the addition of the kindergarten to the public school, wherever a majority of the voters in a particular school district shall so elect. In this city prominent members of the school board have done much to encourage the spread of the kindergarten system. In August, 1892, the Froebel Association rejoiced in the fact that six of its kindergartens were adopted by the Board of Education of this city, to be conducted as a part of the public school system, under a supervising kindergartner. It is believed that the number of kindergartens will gradually be added to, as the School Board overtakes its large arrears in providing school buildings, and that in the good time for which we hope, every
133public school will give its best room, and its best teacher, to the children who have been heretofore considered as under school age. Such a change in our school system will add three years of training to the school life of every child, and these, as every thoughtful educator will allow, years the most susceptible to direction and the most important in the formation of habits and character.
Since 1881 the number of children who have received the benefit of the kindergarten from the Froebel Association has exceeded ten thousand. While it is not possible to follow the school course of these children after they leave the kindergarten, the body of testimony from the primary teachers and the principals of schools under whose observation they fall, is positive and overwhelming, as to the advantageous results, moral, mental and physical of their kindergarten training. Our association, incorporated by act of legislature, has carried on this work by the help of many of our citizens, and depends upon their continued aid to support these kindergartens planted in the needy, overcrowded districts of the city.
The present officers of the Association are as follows.
MRS. T. W. HARVEY AND MRS. WIRT DEXTER, Vice Presidents.
MRS. WM. R. PAGE, 4747 Kimbark Avenue, Treasurer.
MRS. C. J. STERLING, Secretary.

|MRS. WM. MONTGOMERY,||MRS. TRUMAN PENFIELD,|
|MRS. CHAS. F. PIERCE,||MRS. WALTER PECK,|
|MRS. J. FRANK ALDRICH,||MRS. C. C. BONNEY.|
|MRS. ALICE H. PUTNAM, Superintendent and Principal of Training Class.|
The Chicago Free Kindergarten Association will have charge of the kindergarten in the Illinois Building during the months of August, September and October.
This association dates its beginning from September, 1880, when Miss M. H. Ross was called to the Cook County Normal school. The association was formally organized in September, 1881, and chartered in 1883. Mrs. R. D. Fowler was elected its first president. Mrs. A. P. Kelley is now president, and the success of the association is largely due to her untiring energy and interest in the work. Hon. T. C. McMillan has continued from the organization of the association its recording secretary, and Mrs. L. V. Hagans, corresponding secretary; Mr. H. M. Sherwood as treasurer.
The office of the association is located at 33d and Armour Avenue.
The association supports a free training class and has under its supervision twenty-one free kindergartens. These kindergartens are supported by churches, organizations and individuals. The pupil-teachers of the training class practice in the kindergartens during the morning and attend class three afternoons each week.
The course of instruction has been extended to a two years' course.
During the past year the association has become affiliated with the Armour Institute and the students of the kindergarten normal will receive the advantages offered to all members.
Mrs. Lilian White Grant, the choice of the alumnae as principal for their kindergarten, will continue in charge during August September and October, and will be assisted by Miss Anna B. Holmes, principal of the Plymouth kindergarten, Miss Blanch
135Brown, principal of Halsted Street kindergarten, Miss Winifred Childs, principal of Erie Chapel kindergarten, Miss Kate Guest, senior class of February, 1893, Miss Susie Delameter, senior class of June,1893.
The kindergarten will be in session from 9:30 to 12:30 daily, except Saturday.image
Competitive designs for the decoration of this room were submitted to the board and the design of Miss Ida J. Burgess chosen. Wishing this work to represent the artists of the State as far as possible, she invited the assistance of the women whose names appear upon the various panels of the frieze and ceiling.
The color scheme in the reception room is of warm ivory tints relieved in the ceiling with gold, and on the walls with cool green tones. The emblems of music, painting, the drama and literature appear in the cove which, with the panels in the ceiling, were modeled by Miss Gwynn Price, Miss S. S. Hayden, Miss Jeanette Buckley and Miss May Elwell, after designs by Miss Burgess.
The frieze is intended to illustrate the relation of women to the arts, and is the chief decorative feature of the room. It is divided into panels by pilasters and was painted by the following artists:
Miss Ida J. Burgess, "Learning," "Youth."
Miss Alice D. Kellogg, "Instruction."
Mrs. Mary W. Means, "Poetry," "Dancers."
Miss Caroline D. Wade, Landscape.
Miss Anna W. Jones, Landscape.

The La Salle Memorial.
The La Salle Memorial is the woman's exhibit from La Salle County, and (with the exception of the binding) is entirely their handiwork. It is a large volume, with pages 24x18 inches in size, of heavy drawing paper, bound in dark green, with a medallion of La Salle in gold upon the cover. They have broad margins and beautifully illuminated borders; these, with the printing, all done in different text, are the work of young girls under the supervision of a committee. Many of the borders contain emblems of the period to which the article belongs. The borders of "French Explorations" are done in white and gold, with the Oriflamme and Fleur-de-lis, skillfully interwoven. The poem of "Tonty" is encircled by a border done in the Italian colors, with medallions of the "Iron Hand" and the Italian crown. Each article is appropriately illustrated in water colors, crayon and pen and ink. The illustrations of "The Mound Builders" are pictures of vases and implements found in the mounds of La Salle County.
The crosses and rings in "French Explorations" were drawn from Colonel Hitts' valuable collection of relics of "Ft. St. Louis."
The book is further illustrated by twenty full page pictures in oil, water-color, crayon and pastel of the scenery and flora, with fine portraits of La Salle, Gen. Wallace, Judge Caton and the two noted chiefs, Black Hawk and Thabtoua.
In the fifteen articles the varied and eventful story of the growth and development of the county from its geology to "Pioneer Days;" from its warfare with the red man to our international strife; from that stormy period to our present "Industrial
140Status" is concisely and smoothly told; and the wild picturesqueness of its scenery is vividly described.
Sixty women have been engaged in this work, and it represents one year's laborious toil; valuable services most generously contributed.
The Preface was written by Mrs. Warren F. Day.
The frontispiece of the entire book is a full page portrait of La Salle, the explorer, by Miss Matthiessen, of La Salle. Then follows, in the order given below:

Wallace, and Miss Belle Wallace, a daughter of the General, has written a biographical sketch which follows it. Then Mrs. Julia M. Griggs, of Streator, has written a commendable article on the Civil War, handsomely illustrated by the Misses White, of Peoria.

Mrs. Ruger, Miss Emily White, Miss Matthiessen, Miss Irwin, Miss Emily Jekyll, Miss Belle Wallace have all executed one or more full page illustrations. The young ladies who did manuscript work and borders were Misses Blanch Church, Isabel McKinley, Mary Formhals, Grace Stout, Bertha Lorriaux, Edith Evans, Jessie Evans, Mabel Lardin, Bertha Fox, all of Ottawa; Jennie Robbins, of Streator; Azelia Eustace, of Dayton.

A Tribute To Kane County.
"A tribute to Kane County" by the Koregraphic Organization is a most interesting volume to those who are searching to find the many different lines of work in which women are employed, as well as to the people of the county whose history it so faithfully depicts, also the work of its women in various positions.
The Koregraphic Organization is composed of young women who have been employed by the county in its various county offices, and to show their appreciation of the advancement of the county in permitting them this privilege so much earlier than other counties, they compiled this memorial which has illustrated pages, copy of their work, as well as various Court Houses which the county has from time to time possessed.
The manuscript, or history, is compiled by one of these young women, setting forth in detail the numerous openings which the county has so generously provided for its daughters to earn a livelihood, and various items of interest to all the people of the county. The book will be bound in the form of an official record, and will be in every way in keeping with the organization and county which it represents.
The title page is a beautifully illuminated page contributed by Miss Grace Long, of Geneva, and the one portrait in the volume is of Miss Minnie Whaley, who served the county twelve years as deputy circuit clerk and recorder. Miss Whaley was the first woman ever appointed to this position and received this appointment in 1865. This position has been held ever since by a woman.
This exhibit is largely due to the earnest efforts of Miss Etta Irene Maybourne, president of the Koregraphic Organization.
