During the year 1893 on the streets of Chicago were hundreds of women
who had been thrown out of employment. The genuine helplessness and
hopelessness of these women appealed strongly to the generous heart of a
wonderful woman, Dr. Sarah Hackett Stevenson, one time president of the
Chicago Woman's Club. She went before this club and stated that there
was no place in this great city where a woman without funds could find
shelter--a woman who would work if given an opportunity. She demanded in
the name of humanity that this, her club, do something at once to
relieve the situation.

Her plea had its effect, and money was subscribed for beginning work.
Other clubs responded to the call for help and contributed both
furnishings and funds. And what was called the Woman's Model Lodging
House was opened to the public.

No questions were asked of those who came for shelter--the past was not
the thing to be dealt with--only the present and future. A charge of 15
cents a night was made, and if they were without money work was given
them and they were paid for it--they, in turn, paying for their lodging.
It was the principle of the organization that the actual handling of
this money helped to preserve self-respect and that they might not feel
themselves objects of charity. This principle has held through the years
and no woman or child is turned from the door as long as there is a
place to rest.

Hon. William B. McKinley of Champaign, Ill., gave as a memorial to Dr.
Stevenson the present home at 2412 Prairie avenue, which will
accommodate sixty women and about fifty children. The organization has
become one of the strongest in the city--a delegated body of eighty-two
members who represent women's organizations of Cook County. For the last
few years the work has grown and broadened, until almost every trouble
and sorrow that can come to women and children is brought to this door.

The woman who is on the downward path of years, when it is so hard to
find employment, her little money gone, often weakened both mentally and
physically from lack of nourishment and worry--she might be any one's
mother--if not able to work for her lodging, is supplied from the loan
fund. Often she can return the small amount and she does not feel that
she has received charity, but that the hand of a friend has grasped
hers, and her faith in humanity is restored. The young girl who is alone
and without money is safe from the cheap rooming houses of the city. The
mother with her little family, who has been left, by desertion or death,
without the father's protection comes to this home and remains until she
can gather up the thread of existence once more. Often she is saved from
placing her children in institutions or giving them for adoption. An
average of 105 women and children are cared for in the Lodging House
each day.

As time brought the need of better facilities for the care of the
children, the generous friend of the Institution, Wm. B. McKinley, gave
the building at 2408 Prairie avenue for Nursery purposes. Here the
children are cared for during the day, while the mother is seeking
employment, or otherwise adjusting her affairs.

A limited number of neighborhood children are also cared for. A trained
nurse and kindergartner are employed. Twenty-four hour feedings for
bottle babies are furnished so that the little ones diet may not be
disturbed. In this department 60 children are given daily care. The
mother has charge of her family at night. Every effort is made by this
organization to keep the mother and her children together. We believe
that separation should be only after every other method has failed.

A visit to the Stevenson Memorial will interest you and you are most
welcome at all times.

meats (pecans, almonds or English walnuts are best); two dozen green
olives; salt to taste.

kettle, the whole head of cauliflower in plenty of salted water. Do not
cover. When about half done, put into an iron skillet two tablespoonfuls
of bacon drippings and when smoking hot turn in the dry rice which has
previously been well washed and dried on a clean towel. Parch this rice
in the drippings, stirring constantly until a golden brown. Then dip the
