Signs of the Times

[From the Union Star, Schenectady, New York]

By count of the vote of 128,882 women of this country on the names of the twelve woman who have proved the greatest leaders of their sex in the past hundred years, it is found that the name of Mary Baker Eddy leads all the rest. The dozen women highest in the ballot are to be memorialized in twelve niches in the Hall of Fame to be erected at Chicago for the World's Fair which will be held there next year....

The result of the balloting is quite significant of what American women think of the qualities which entitle one to occupy a niche in their Hall of Fame. ... It is significant that the woman who heads the list founded a church. It, perhaps, expresses the view of the women who made the selection that the highest work woman can do is in the spiritual realm.
