THE WORLD TO-DAY.
"Guaedian" Office, February 9, 1914.
"Women returning fco various parts of the wovid from the International Congress of Women in Amsterdam last year, have many interesting things to tell in connection with the Women's .Industrial Exhibition, which took place in Amsterdam at the same time. All through the year the Netherlands was celebrating its centenary of constitutional government, for it is just 100 years since the proud little country threw off French domination, recalled lier own princes of the House of ■Orango, and established a limited raon-1 archy. In every town of any size was a celebration characteristic of its special feature. In none of these celebrations, iowever, were women recognised. They were not placed upon any committees, and their important part in the 'develbpment of the country was completely ignored: It was left to themselves to make it knownj aad they did it in a way never'to be forgotten. How they did it is most interestingly told by a writer in the New York "Herald."
