Dr. Dickie locked proud and pleased as he offered his arm to Miss Anthony, literally to rescue her, as the entire congregation of women pressed forward and fairly took her in their embrace. The business sessions of the Council are held in the beautiful "House of the Artists, "where their picture exhibits are given, and, like the other halls here, lich in paintings, stained glass, carving and statuary.

The Council (fficially recognizes tl ree languages, English, German and French, but all previous meetings have been conducted in English. Here, however, the other two prevail, but even these are ioreign to the members, from Holland, Finland, Scandinavia, and various other countries.

At the charming social entertainments which have been arranged we find the same exasperating obstacle, and frequently, upon meeting some one whom we have long wished to know, we can only press her hand, look eloquently in her eyes, and pas on feeling like an idict. Usually, however, we Americans are like the husband and wife who always effected a peaceful compromise by doing exactly as the husband wished. We compromise the difference in language by carrying on the conversation in English; but still there are a number of our women from the United States who converse fluently in German and French. We are proud of our international president, Mrs. Sewall, who apparently speaks and understands the three languages with equal ease. When the audience were wildly applauding her address, our American delegation thought to make our appreciation especially manifest by shouting "Hoch! Hoch!" at the top of our voices, but we pronounced it "Hock," and learned afterwards that it should have been "Ho," so we shall applaud in English hereafter. As we sat on the platform and looked down into the hundreds of faces, we asked Miss Shaw if she could see much difference between this and an American audience. "Yes," she answered, here they have enthusiasm." And so they have, responding instantly to a point, and rising to their feet with cries of approval in a way that is mi st inspiring to a speaker. Strange to say, the appearance of the audience is not so different from one in the United States as it tan-yle- Self-contr- ol e. seemed in London. Das Palast Hotel is in a busy centre, with a park in front, and at night one might imagine himself looking out of the windows of the Fifth Avenue Hotel in New York.

Every hour not required for council meetings is filled with the most' delightful social affairs, always offering the most elaborate refreshments. What must fortignert think when they are invited to a '"tea" or reception in the United States and regaled with a wafer or a tiny cup of chocolate? The cards for the opening reception given by the German Council in Prince Albert's Hotel said nine o'clock, so some of us dined leisurely, took our time to make an evening toilette, and presented ourselves about eleven. Our feeling may be imagined when we were ushered into a griat banquet hall, the tables still weighted with the remains of an elaborate feast, the toasts all finished and the receiving party bidding adieu to the guests.

Mr. Tower is the only Ambassador from the United States who ever has been able to entertain at dinner the Emperor of Germany, as the etiquette of the court permits him to enter only homes maintained at a certain standard. Most of us have been pleased to see Toronto selected as the place for the next Quinquennial meeting of the Council. The presidency of Mrs Sewall has been without a parallel in the history of organizations. She founded the Council with nine affiliated branches, or National Auxiliaries. She leaves it with a membership of twenty National Councils, and with in fifteen other countries doing the preliminary work toward organization.
