WOMAN'S For the Exponent . STRATION. ON BEHALF OF PEACE AND ARBITRATION. OF BERLIN. From Wansu's pier we sail away, Adown the Havel fair; By verdant banks and castles gray, Bright sunshine in the air. Hew clear the water shimm'ring flows. As swift we speed along! The small craft ever by us goes, With greeting and with song. The band plays in the steamer's bow, Songs famed in ev'ry land, No foreign thought these guests allow, Where warm is proffered friendship's hat rising there in view, Where palaces aboun I; Of thee come mem'ries not a few, Thy grandeur all around. O, Potsdam And there dwelt lovely Queen Louise, So famed in history; The palace almost hid by trees, Her refuge proved to be. Though many years h tve passed away, She is beloved still; Her virtues living e'en today, And they pure thoughts instil Romantic, green is yonder isle, The steamer circles round; While strains of music e'er beguile The throng, with restful sound. All hearts are beating full of praise, For honor freely shown, The dainty viands German ways, Politeness all their own. All hail Berlin, most generous host! All hail: Berlin the fair; "Yet greater be" this is our toast. Thou city of "The Bear." Lydia d. Alder. PEACE RALLYING SONG. Sung by by Maria Freeman Gray at annual supper of Pennsylvania Peace Society. Again we see the glory of the coming of the Lord, Again we hear a trumpet calling men to march aboard, And unsheath again the lightning of Truth's d sword. For God is marching on. two-edge- The Demonstration for Peace set as an Annual Festival to be celebrated on each recurring ibth of May was last spring, for good and sufficient reason postponed. This Demonstration will take place on October 8th. A letter has been issued to the Presidents of National Organizations affiliated with the National Council and to Presidents cf Local Councils and to members of the Committee which we hope will result in the following preparations for the Demonstration. First: Clergymen throughout the country will be asked to devote one service on Suuday, October 2nd to some phase of the general subject cf Peace and Arbitration. Owing to the fact that the Thirteenth International Congress of Peace is to open in Boston on Monday, October 3d, the pastors of the leading churches of that city have already arranged to devote their morning service to Peace. This should be an aid in securing the attention of clergymen throughout the country to the subject. Second: The aid of the Press is again invoked. It is hoped that local committees on press will be organized in hundreds of communities that these committees will put themselves into such relation with the local press that the public mind may be prepared for the special service on October 2nd and for the Demonstration on October 8th. Third: As the Thirteenth International Peace Congress will occupy the first week in October, it seems wise to avail ourselves of the impetus to interest which must be given by it, and to convene the Demonstration on Saturday, October 8th. The hour for the meeting is net specified, since every committee in making its arrangements should be left free to consult local tastes and local conditions. All members of this committee and all members of subcommittees; charged with the arrangement of programs are asked to see to it that speakers and other participants are chosen in about equal numbers from both political parties and from various religious faiths, since to be most successful the movement must be in form what it certainly is in and spirit, entirely non-partisa- We see 19 CALL FOR THE SIXTH ANNUAL DEMON- THE FLOATING TEA PARTY.

The object in making such au inspection is to secure books which will instil nobler ideas of patriotism and which will reduce military achievment to its proper plade and give to the achievments of Science, Art, and Industry their rightful recognition. (c) It is desired that the Peace Tri-colof royal purple, white and golden yellow which was adopted by the Council as its emblem shall be used at all meetings held in connection with this Demonstration. It is Loped that the distinguished workers for Peace from foreign countries who will come over to the Thirteenth International Congress will remain in this country, and that. their services will be secured places for independent Peace Meetings.

Trueblood, the Secretary of the Committee of Organization 31 Beacon, St. Boston, or Mass.
