A NKW SUBURBAN CITY.
Tim ltciuitlful Suburb of Kensington For
A largo nml tnciry party oi! well-known citi
zens left the 11. it 0. Station by the Motropoll
Inn Branch on Tuesday afternoon to witness a
notable anil Interesting ceremony. Their desti
nation was Kensington, formerly Knowlcs, one
of the most beautiful suburbnu towns In the
whole clrelo that surrounds the Nntionnl Capi
tal. The occasion was the formal baptism of
Kensington by Its now name, and when the
train arrived a Hag-raising took place. This
was followed bv an address by Mr. Charles
Hancock, who wns Introduced by Mr. Kastcr
day, of the firm of Eastcrday &, Ilaldcman. Mr.
"The beautiful and stately banner which this
afternoon has been unfurled and now lloats
aloft, kissed by the virgin mountain airs fan
ning the romantic and beautiful Kensington,
proclaims to us that this charming villngo has,
by n wise and phllunthrophic gentleman, been
dedicated ns a site for suburban homes, a city
of homes dedicated and consecrated, where
peace, rest, hnppiucss, and health can bo en
joyed. "Knowles, now Kensington, has over been re
nowned for Its pastoral beauties, its lovely
scenery, Its hcnlthfulness, its charm of loca
tion. Hero for many years have resided the
cream of Maryland's best society; hero have
dwelt somo of the first families of the land;
here heroes have been born and gone forth in
their manhood to battle for the land they loved
so well; and hero to-day wo meet to baptize
Kensington, and as wo stand at the font of her
consecration let us bow at her shrine of rural
aud pastoral beauty, and hall the new-born
Kensington us a boon for the coming ages, where
our wives and children, our friends, and the
strangers within our gates may find homes,
sweet homes, that most sacred of all terrestrial
"No more delightful spot could have been se
lected as a llttlng compliment to that genius
and acumen which permitted tho grand idea to
bo born, aud personally I accord my tribute to
tho gentleman to whoso mentality wo are In
debted for the lovely, charming, delightful
Kensington, tho future city of surburban
homes. Here, nestled by Nature's charms, beau
tiful homes will spring "into exlstenco us If by
the magician's wand, stately, costly, and luxu
rious homes, replete with all that tends to
charm, beautify, and adorn our lives and edu
cate and develop the beautiful within ourselves.
Here, surrounded by that grand mother, Na
ture, will bo born the heroes, statesmen, diplo
mats, professors, the artist, and tho sculptor of
the future; and hero the honored founder of
Kensington will dwell, surrounded by the beau
ties resultant of his noble mission. His stately
homo will be the central figure of delightful Ken
sington, an edifice worthy of the grand con
ception whoso appointments will embrace the
frescoes of La Belle France, the sculptury of
Home, paintings from tho Vatican, the tapes
tries of Florence; hero will bo congregated tho
culture, beautv. fashion, and elite of Maryland.
To be a resident of Kensington will bo tho
entree to all that is crood, noble, beautiful, and
true; here the Sabbatarian chimes will swell the
glad refrain; hero the holy, sacred rest of tho
Sabbath will bo consecrated, and God's holy
temple replete with grateful devotees; hero will
be found sweet, peaceful rest from city cares;
here happy reunions will bo lovingly enjoyed;
here will bo united by nuptial vows tho sons
and dauchter8 of Kensington, and babbling
babes will lisp tho loving name; and to-day wo
innueurato the opportunity so generously ex
tended for the selection of sites; to-day you are
offered tho choicest plots; to-day you are
invited to become, Keuslngtonians; to-day
wo extend the social hand bidding 3ou to
be one of us; to-day wo say come and enjoy all
wo offer you; the right liand of fellowship i3
yours to embrace; the opportunity is yours,
and wo offer you all tho blessings which can
possibly bo enjoyed on earth a beautiful site
for jour future home, with good, puro air and
water, tho breezes wafted over tho stately Po
tomac, kissed by tho mountains of old Virginia,
borno aloug by the hills and rills of 'My Mary
land.' Como and dwell with us, and in the
summer solstico list to the vocul anthem of tho
feathered minstrels, gazo at tho Occident at sot
of sun, view the gilded orb at morn in tho
orient, and let naturo woo you with her charms
and caresses. Now is the appointed time; now
is your opportunity; to-day your being's long
ing can bo secured, a homo where, freo from
the world's alarms, you can bo at rest. Tho
stately city of Washington within view, yet so
remote; society charming and captivating; all
naturo und human naturo bowing obedience,
and heaven smiling on your efforts to secure
that charm of charms, a home, a beautiful
home, beyond price, and offered you to-day.
"No boou moro worthy of your acceptance,
no boon more lovingly bestowed, no grander
heritage, no grander birthright for your chil
dren and your graudchlldren, encompassing all
through tho future years. And amid all this
rejoicing in Kensington this lovely afternoon,
do not let us forget tho gentlemen to whom so
much Is due, and to whoso courtesy we aro in
debted for this delightful trip, this outing In
the woods and glens, gentlemen of probity and
honor, whoso word Is their bond; ability un
questioned, an honor to tho business public,
and as truo as gold; aflluent, courteous, genial.
All honor to the Arm of Fsterday to Haldeman.
Thanking you for courteous attention to these
brief remarks, I will close to give you tho op
portunity so eagerly sought by you all, tlio
curing of n beautiful site for your
Xlio Now Club for "Women.
WImodnughsIs 1 What a queer, long word 1
What does it mean ? says every one who sees it
for tho first time. Let mo explain, and you
will 6eo that tho word is not any too long, for
In it aro combined almost everything which
makes life worth living. Take tho word in
syllables wl-wivcs, mo-mothers, daugh-daugh-tcrs,
sis-sisters. Now, could wo have any homes
without all that this word contains ?
Now, although theso wives, mothers,
daughters, and sisters all want to do whntever
they can to make life pleasant to tholrhusbands,
fathers, sons, and brothers, somo of them have
to earn their bread by leaving their homes,
others have no quiet, well-lighted room In
which to read or study; others still get very
tired in tho dally routine of housekeeping and
caring for little chlhlreu, even though "these
cares nro dear to their hearts. Wo all know
how truo the saving is that "All work and no
play makes .lack n dull boy," nnd It is tho same
with Jill. She, too, must have nn outing once
in a while. Only watch a father or brother
shut up in tho house for two or three days and
sec if you find him as ngrccablo a companion
on tho third day as on tho first.
So we havo come to tho conclusion that tho
women of tho family do need 6ome outsido in
terest as well as tho men. Whcro shall tho in
terest bo centered; in the church ? Yes, some
times, but oven there you will not find all that
theso wives and mothers need. If they are go
ing to the church soclablo or to tho theatre and
wish to meet a friend there must be a place of
meeting appointed, especially if tho persons re
side iu different sections of the city. They
For the coming week we offer the following list of special prices, which we term TRADE

A New Establishment.
Happy should ho tho man or establishment
who can satisfy tho many wants of tho ladles
011 their shopping tours. Such seems to be tho
good fortune of S. Cohen & Co., of 52fl
Eloventh street northwest, who have lately em
barked in business. Thoy havo christened their
now establishment "Cohen's Trimming Store,"
as they handle exclusively ladles' trimmings of
every description. As a HuuAi.n man was
making his usual rounds last week his atten
tion was attracted by tho handsomely decorated
windows of tho nbovo establishment, so ho
ventured in to 6eo if tho iuterior corresponded
with tho oxterior. It is needless to expatiate
on tho varied aud well-selected assortment
found within, and tho Ilciui.n man immedi
ately camo to tho conclusion that it would be
impossible for ladies not to havo their wants
gratified by visiting "Cohen's Trimming Store,"

The assortment of furs, shoulder capes, in
sealskin with Persian and niai ten fiare collars,
coney and muskrat capes, seal sacks, and fur

seems almost superfluous to statu that all goods

standing of Messrs. Willett and lluoff is such

as by any house in America. Dunlap's New

usually say, "We will meet in Mr. Blank's
drug store," or perhaps some cold street
corner is selected. But now these meet
ings in stores and on street corners need not bo
a necessity, for the long word at the heading of
this article means a homo or meeting place for
women, whero they will find well-lighted, com
fortable rooms, open fires, plenty of good
books, magazines, daily papers, and, more than
all, a hearty welcome from 8 A. M. until 10 P.
M. every day, including Sunday.
And all this has been accomplished through
the exertions of somo bravo women who havo
duly organized WImodaughsIs as a joint-stock
company (capital not to exceed 200,000) and
procured a temporary residence until the neces
sary funds shall bo secured to build a largo
club-house especially designed for women. Tho
stock is non-assessable and tho officers are
under bond. Tho shares havo been placed at
the low price of $5 each, aud the first issue is
now being rapidly subscribed for.
Here aiso competent persons will teach
French, German, Spanish, Latin, music, paint
ing, hygiene, physiology, gymnastics, short
hand, type-writing, typo-setting, cooking, dress
making, milliner1, etc., etc., and the monthly
payment of a very small amount entitles women
to enjoy tho many privileges offered by this
new club. Women from the North, South,
East, and West will find here a quiet place after
a long or short journey, and can come directly
to thi6 pleasant homo with its attractive lunch
room, and after resting a while will bo furnished
with all necessary information regarding rooms
or boarding places, if thoy desire.
For a sm all sum they can hero procure a fe
malo guide or a chaperon to show them all the
places of Interest in this beautiful city. Many
persons still have tho wrong idea of this new
club, and wo often hear such remarks as this :
"Oh, if WImodaughsIs means a placo for women
suffragists and the W. C. T. U. only, I, for one,
shall not go near it." Many women of to-day
are not enlightened enough to see that one
club-house can contain all tho associations,
and still thoy will not intcrfero with each other.
Where all aro working for tho same end, tho
welfare of women, it does more good than harm
to have a diversity of thought, for two heads
aro usually better than one, and if we can only
talk over and oxchango thoughts with each
other in a home-like, quiet placo our minds
grow and wo havo broader ideas than if wo stay
shut up within ourselves and never grasp any
one by tho hand because they do not believe
ju6t as we do.
It is a great comfort to know that wo aro all
treated alike in many ways, for God, our good
heavenly Father, makes tho sun to shine and
tho rain to fall on all, on the ju6t and on tho
unjust. Wo aro all workers in tho same vino
yard, but wo must seo that our work is well
"To look up and not down,
To look out and not in
To look .forward uud not backward.
And to lend n hand." Ai.i'iu.
