W Oman’s H ifetory Club-
Mr*. Emma Sheats, President.
Mist Hattie Lee Hargi9, Vice
Miss Adelaide Rollins, Secty,
[ Miss Lei a Darden Treasurer.
Mrs. Katharine McKelvey,
The regular meeting of the
Womans Historcal Club met at
the home of Mrs. Virginia Irby,
Thursday afternoon Jan. 27 at
half past two o’clook. After a
long spell of inclement weather,
the day was one of warmth and
sun-shine and a goodly number
of metibers were present.
It was remembered the day
was the tenth anniversary of the
Women's Club of Kingston,
its foundei being Miss Bell Bay
less, now a teacher in the public
school at Cartersville, but whose
home is still here with her
mother and sister Mrs. Virginia
A novel and unique way was
that by which she called the
ladies together in that fir-t meet
ing. The invitations to her
home were written on small
sheet* of paper, folded compact
ly and enclosed between the
empty lids of a peanut, and
since that day of organization,
ttie Club has never missed
having a monthly meeting and
the interest remains unabated.
Just as the meeting was about
to be called to order our hostess
ushered into our presence Ihe
resident pastor, Rev. B. H.
Trammel of the Methodist
Church who had come calling
and by invitation remained with
us during our deliberations, a
(may I say it) delighted listener
and enjoys the distinction of
being the first gemtlemau who
ever sat with our body.
The meeting was called t o
order by the President. Rejiorts

The music number of the
program by Mrs. Katharine
McKelvey was a song, Annie
Laurie, the quaint, sweet old
ballad of long ago.
The character study for the
day was Mrs. W. H. Felton,
our own Bartow Co., woman,
and one of whom we are justly
proud. The paper read by Mis ß
Sussie Rollins, was a biography
of that prominent woman,
written by herself, at the re.
puestof Mrs, Jack Rollins. It
was interesting to sit and listen
to the life of a woman who had
dope something and who was a
ibtce in the world.
Mrs. Felton is so prominent
As a writer of short sketches, and
they were so interesting that
the balance of the afternoun was
devoted to the reading of-them.

The subject for the Literary
past of the meeting was “The
Noted Woman of Ga.,” and the
paper prepared, and read by
Mrs. Daisy Gnffiii, was ex
cellent. Some of us did not
know before the many woman
Georgia ha 9 had and has now.
The last meeting is the best
and again as of old,it was at the
going down of tke sun when we
arose to make our adieu to our
hostess, to meet with Mrs.
Emma Sheats in February.
We are indebted to Mr. G. L.

Please Mr. Merchant, hire a

i OF GEORGIA.
(Paper re|d bv Mrs. Daisy Griffin at the Jan. meeting
of the Womans History Glub.)
“No good, power whose vice has gone
forth but each smtyives foK the melody, when eternity affirms
the conception of an hour.X
Georgia ranks at the fronNm the production of grand, no
ble, pure, and virtuous woroeh, all of these are not record
ed in history,but a glam eat the progress of the Empire State
of the South reveals this fact. How many women have
struggled and are pressing foward at home today? The in
fluence ot these women are one of the main factois toward the
uplift of the state, for every man owes a great part of his
success to some sweet gentle woman. Just a word lias been
said in regard to the unknown heroines, now we shall no
tice the names of those who by their diligent aim constant
efforts have left their marks and are imprinting today “loot
print on the sands of time .
During Revolutionary times the heroism of women was
not lacking, but was ready to meet the conflict. To j]|t. s
trate this the story of Nancy Hart may be used. Six Tories
came to her cabin, stacked their guns in one corner and de
manded a meal. After she had prepared the food, ahe in
vited them 10 e> t. The\ were \ ery jol y,not thinking of the
fatal resuit of tueir visit She verv quickly snatched up
one of the guns and dared them to move. One advanced
toward h«r, hut soon fell dead. Soon her husband came, and
the To-ies were carried away and hanged. Hart 00111113- was
named for her, there to-day the 9pot where her cabin stood,
may be Keen.
Near Augusta in 1810, Octnvia Walton Le Vert was born.
Soon her parent moved to Florida, hut she m»v he consid
ered a Georgian by birth She wu familiar with languages
and idioms of different countries, so that she was at ease in
any of Fnyice, Spain, Italy. Germany,
or of her oyynrcountry. She travelled'a great deal, was a
reigning belle every where, and atter.|jer yisrriage to Dr. Le
Vert, knew as well bow to care for thlHick and suffering as
to preside m society She and Washington Irving were
very good friends, and at that time she was probably* more
widely known than any woman-m America. Among her
works may be mentioned , Souvenirs of Travel. Moonlight
in Venice, and The Ascent and Eruption of Vesuvius.
Another woman may be mentioned, whose thoughtful act
differs somewhat from that of Nancy Hart. After tho Civil
war. a body of Federal soldiers called at the house of Mrs.
Robert Toombs of Washington, Ga. General Toombs seeing
them coming well knowing their purpose was to arrest him",
hastened out by the hack door, saddled a horse and. rode off
quickly. Mrs. Toombs answered the knock and invited
the soldiers 111. They called for the General, but she delay
ed tliom for nearly half-hour on various pretexts. When
they began to suspect, she assisted tnem in looking over the
house for the General. In this way lie escaped and remain
ed away several years.
At the suggestion of Mrs. Mary Williams, of Columbus,
Ga., Memorial Day wa< adopted throughout the South.
After her letter to the Columbus Tunes, the 2(>th day of
April was selected. Another well known woman of this
time is Martha Lumpkm, daughter of Gov. Lumpkin, for
whom Martliasvilie was named. In speaking of old Atlan
ta. mention will always be made of this typical daughter of
Georgia can host of some verv brilliant women scien
tisis, such as the astronomer, Eliza A . Bowen , poets and
fiction writer. Among the last Augusta Evans Wilson heads
the list. She has been declared by some to be the most
brilliant and facinating writer of the South, and although
her works have been criticized by others, they are consider
ed standard. She was born in Columbus, Ga but her par
ents moved to 'Texas when she was only a child. Part of
the scene m one of her most widely known novels, St. Elmo
is laid in Ga.
In lecounting the services of the noted women of on. let
v.s not be forgetful of the living, our contemporaries,who are
striving in every wav t . built up church, home ami society,
(in the broad sense of the word,) Mrs. Eeiton, of Carters
ville, has done a great deal for the Stale 111 a political wav
and to-day is using her nnuked intellect for the benefit of
ail who read her writings. Many have been cheered and
► irelightened by the womanly advice given bi Mrs,William
King in the Atlanta Constitution Miss Berry, of Rome is
making grea;, progress with liar Industrial School for boys,
especially country and mountain boys, who have been de
prived ofschooiad vantages. S one declares that her institut
ion. established 111 1002, is just ilie school to settle tiie prob
lem of dealing with boys. The improvements of sciio >1
grounds, beautifying them bv planting trees and flowers,
and of now existing sanitary Conditions was brought about
by ibe efforts of Mrs. waiter B. HBI, of Athens, and educat
or over the state. All know that our state is indebted to
Mrs. Miry Harris Armour, and the women of Gaorgui in lea
gue with her fur state-wide prohibition
Tor lack of material all the noted women of Georgia have
not been mentioned. Sufficient it 19 to sav that at every is
sue, Georgia women have bravely taken a stand toward” 11 »-
bility and righteousness, not oaring for publicity, but meek
ly striving to be useful.
