Mrs. Helen M. Gaogar addressed the ai

Ia., on May 2 The annual report of Ihs
aatociation werk says: "But little has been
done during the past year in the way of
public meeting fur the dtscusilon of the
subject of extending the elective franchise
to woman, but the friends ol the cause in
their social relations have zealously
worked for a better public senti
ment in this xsfard. Its propriety, utility
and cecffciity are CaMy being more fully re
alized and moie deply felt. The enfran
chisement of woman needs only free, fair
and full discucaion to command the uaqial
ied assent of intelligent persons. Opposi
tion to the cause is growing weaker day by
diy. New friends are constantly making
thm! elves known, and giving us encouraze
xcentby word3 of good cheer. A more
healthy tcntiment prevails among wonea.
A consciousnetsthat they have no right to
shirk a lawful power which may be exerted
for the promotion of moral order in the com
xnunity. is giving them a broader and clearer
view of this subject."
IntbeNewK'a for May, Mrs. Elizabeth
Bo j r: ten Haibert presents a new idea for the
consideration of thoughtful, conscientious
wemen regarding the temperance question.
"Prohibitionists aad moral saas'.oai3!s
alike," the says, "have recognized the fact
that legislation to ba thoroughly effective
meat b based rpon ta moral sentiment of
tbe people. We need to make our youog
men recognize tbioogh every fiber of the:r
being tbat drunkenness is a disgrace. As
one means cf creating such a lentimenr, I
cm in favor of tbe women of the country in
trcdcclnga bill into every Legislature a)k
leg tbat persistent drunkards ba disfran
chieed. I would h&ve the sentence pissed
by the Judge, before whom a man has b2ea
tree cht (arrested for the crime of drunken
rets), r.ct a line which the already imnovar
iatcd wife and starving child must pay, but
disfracrhiiement for a term of years, or for
life unless tbe criminal reforms.
Other criminals no more dangerous to sod
ty are disfrancbi?ed. why not thedrunkard?
Have not tbe difrachised women of this
cccntrr a right to insist that the men who
xtase the laws which so yital'y atfect their
happiness ihall be sober aad In their right
"Tbe women of th:s country are sutii jien t
ly organized to-day tj unite in eaying to the
leaden of the ?reat political pirties, 'VTewill
not not have drunkards to rate over us and
curcnildren. Nominate a drinking man at
' Osce convince the young men o! our
country tbat every door to political prefer
runt and toner is to be closed ta the drank
ard. and we shall ooa see the beginning of
Mr. Haibert'e lait sentence engcests the
tiiocgh; that one? coavinca the young men
of our country that every chance forooc'.al
reccgnitton and for family rerpectaollity is
denied to the drunkard, and we woald aes
tbe begicnicg of tbe end. This is witatn ths
power of women, if they were "educated up
to thai point."
Whether these suggestion! are practicable
Is an cpen question. No means of exertlnj
an in fi oence on public sentiment is to beig
scrcd, bat it is doubtful whether a dlsfran
chitcd dais could through the cost peritat
nt and energetic etrjrtaecure the dlafraa

valuable to a poweifal faction as are the
Totes of drunkards to the manufacturers

Tbe ccmmiisioner, Mrs, J. G. Lemmas, is
tfce wife of Professor Lemaaoc, the caiebrited
California botanist, and has for several yrarj
devoted her life to botanical researches. Not
tbe botany of tbe c'a'B room or laboratory
but of the field, the wilderness and the moan
tain top. In the canyons of Colorado, oa the
plains of New Mexico and Arizona and on
tbe Calfornia coast and mountain peaks, have
Professor and Mrs. Lemmon prosecuted their
studies and investigations. From their large
herbarium at Oakland, Cal., they have
brought to the exposition aoat two thou
sand botanical specimens illustrating ths
flora of the entire Pacific coast. Theas are
tbe results of their joint labors and each
specimen bears both names. In addition to
the botanical eiecimens, ate about seventy
rive exquisite water color paintings of Cali
fornia wild flowers, the work of Mrs. Lern
mo:. These "field ekatches," as the artist
modestly terms them, are botanlcaily
correct, beirg sketched on the spot for the
exprets purpose of showing the form and
color which can not be preserved in the
dried plant. A portion of these specimeas
and paintings is in ths Facific Elope exhibit
of woman's work, bat the larger number is
wua me i.emmon exnioit in me o;ate aia
play. This includes about 1,000 distinct
epecies of plants; the ferns, grasses, grains,
lilies, orchids, food producing plants, honey
producing plants, medicinal, etc. With ths
locality, habits, characteristics and use3 of
these plants both Mr. and Mrs. Le'mmon are
familiar, and a number bear their name by
right of discovery.
Other work by Mrs. Lemmon of a scientific
nature is a classified collection of over oae
hundred species of the marine al?a of Cali

'Woman has no need to perfect terself ; ehe

This is probably the idea of all who oppose
the higher education of women. Terre Hia:e
It is undignified for an accomplished
youEg woman to scrub the kltcbea lljorif
ehe cr her family are able to hire it done by
a woman who has no other accomplishment.
It is dignified for the most accsmpli-hed wo
man toeecare the scrubbing of her flo:r. it
would have baen far mo;o dignified for Mrs.
Carl; le to lat her grates grow gray find raity,
and keep ber ringers white and her face
bright, than it was to blacken her hand-,
tour her temper, break her hem over polish-
in? them. I hone the dav will come whea
cot ard manuii labor will fall upon asy wo
man whatever, but when all women will for
all humanity's sake lead an easy material
life to the soul's sustenance. Until that day
comes many women must give not only par
ecnal attention, but muscular exertion, to
hcueewoik. Then it Is digniöed. Not the
reeult of woik, but the quality of work, is
our buttress. It is dignified to give as much
personal attention to housswork as is need
ful to tbe welfare of home. It ii not digni
fied to do more. Gail Hamilton,

This is but another illustration of how the

Mrs. Abby Morton Diaz, President of
Woman's Educational aad Industrial Union,
with the other cmcars and friend?, cele-
I brated Vi anniversary, the tenth, if I miitake
I not, leet week. This organization coaipre-
heiicTs many departments: the labor, for as
sisting women to find werk; a protective de
partment that looks into the wrongs between
employer and employee; classes tor Btudy
in everything from belles letter to book
keeping; parlor and reading-room ; a sale de
partment for the Woman's Exchange work,
with frequent morning and evening lecturoa,

ers, ci whom Mrs. Julia V ard Uowe is fre
qtently one on which occasion tha Uojon
I railor conld not hold one fourth tha c.-owd
who tbronged for entrance. For the eater
tainment3 Miss Louisa Alcott has often gan
erously assisted, and her "Mrs. Jarley" is
considered an unsurpassed bit of amateir
impeisonaticn. On tbe occasion of the aa
niveresry last week Mrs. Diaz, the Presiddut,
made in her addrets an effective diatinction
between what she called root work and ear
face work in labor for humanity. Of these
two forms she eaid:
"W se thinaen are oi the opinion that for
removing the ills cf he inanity rcot work is
mo e efftciifj t ian tur ace work. Si'fice
werk baa three aims: to alleviate, to reform,
to suppress. Its methods are charities, re
formatory crcstdej and penal enactments.
It attacks tbe outward results of inward ey il
ccnditlocs, strikes at whatever coma up in
s'ght. This cuttlde work is bstter than none.
The mistake lies in regarding it as the ulti
matum, rather than as a temporary re
tort to scrva only daring the ci
tsbliahnient of the real thing. It is aa act
of kindness to provide the impoverished sick
with beds and attendants in hospital), bot
it is kinder and thriftier to prevent the ne.d
of bfds and attendance Sickness and pi
pcrism are the results of ignorance or sin in
seme quarter.and such conditions remaining,
we may go on enlarging our hospitals to the
end of tfme, with corresponding increaso of
need. The same is trus of all alleviating ex
pedients, as well as of reformatory aid
penal. Tbe evils contended with pauper
ism, drunkene ss, vice, crime -do not exist of
therr selves. They are simply the Inward
conditions becoming apparent in conduct.
These conditions are ignorance, seidshness,
undeveloped faculties.! slae ratings of values,
lack of eelf-respect and self-restraint. The
effective work is to change such conditions
by a kind cf education that shall develop the
hiebest and best, and thus enable the lndi-
vidcal to atand upright of himself, instead
of being held in position by charities, re
form or penalties. The time for such de
velopment is at the easily impressible period
of life, and the place is the home, if Ih
beme-rcaker, woman, be equal to the situa
tion. But for the demands cf sach work,
women need the development of thslr own
highest and best qualities. And it is in this
yery direction of the advancement of woaiso
that our Institution is working. Let no on
think It a matter of favoring woxen atone
lien stand equally affected; not only 01 ao
count of the inflnence of woman on charact
er la its beginning, but becauea of a general
tsnse the sund&rd cf woman in tha com
rannity a fret that of maa."
Few crjinizxUcni era doing f ffKUre,
or mere needful work for women, in a di
rection tbat may well ba termed a general
higher edecatien than is this Woman's
Union of Eotton.

I knew Mrs. Hamilton, the widow of Alex

visits to Washington quite toward tha close
cf ber long, useful, but quiet life.
Her portrait is in the same room with one
of Hfi.mil ton. When Tallyiand was their
guest be asked for this liKenea of Hamilton,
and cn his return to Francs bai it cop:ed
and sending them the copy, kept the orit
ra). After Hamilton's sudden death, this
original was returned to the youog wido
by tbe Prince, with a letter so feeling tbat
jou rub jour ejes after leading the sigca- i
ture with such different .character i3 asso

historical treasures belonging of righ; in this

the high cushioned hair, tbe rich dress and
conventional attitude tell of the woman of
society, there is something strong in the
steady ejes and closed mouth which show a

beauty cf her splendid mother the wife of
General Philip Schuyler who, rather than
let their crop3 be of use to the advancing
English army (advancing on Saratoga) her

high resolute nature was all there when tbe
yceng widow found in ber own sorrow aid
ber own orphaued children the motive for a
life wich should lilt neglect and sorrow from
thousands of children. Her "talents" were
many; illustrious names and a powerful
family, the tenderest sympathy of a whole
nation, and her own pitying, loving nature
blended with a rare sense of justice all these
she dedicated to the care of children.
Eer grief over her own children took the

and unfriended as well as orphaned. To
Mrs. Hamilton is directly owing the first or
phan asylum of New York. On its fiftieth
anniversary a memorial service was held in
tbe Chcrch of the Epiphany, in Washington,
where Mr?. Washington then was for tha
winter, and the wort and its greatly extended
geed were told over. The seed had baooaie

was feeble and could not sit 'brongh

The Uartboldi Statue.
; Charles Barnard, in Hb Nichols's.!
"In the first place, there had to te a sketch
or model. This was a figare of ths status in
clay, to give an idea of bow it would look.
The public approved of this model, and then
the first real study of tbe werk was made, a
plaster statne, just one sixteenth the size or
tte intended statue.
"The next step wes to make another molel
just four times as larfe, or one-f.mrth the
s'e of tee real statue, inis quarter size
model being finished, then came te task of
making the full size model In plaster. Bat
this bad to be made in sections. For ln
stance, the first section would include the
bate on which the figure stool, the feet, and
tbe hem of the garmsnt. The next section
wonld include a circle quite round the lone
fiowir g dress, just above the hem. The third
lection woald stand above this and show
more cf the folds of the dress, and reach part
way up to the knee. In like manner the
whole figure would be divided into sections.
"Tbe quarter-size model was first divided
in this way. and then to lay out the full size
p'an it was enly necessary to make a plan of
each tectlcn four times as large as the sec
tion actually was In tbe model. Erery part
of the mcdel was covered with niara or dots
for guides, and by measuring fron dot to
.dot. iccreaalntr the measurement tour timer.
and then transferring it to the larger model.
an exact copy just four times as large as was
meet. J-or each ci mesa large sec
tiers, However, mere &ta to b a
support of some kind, before tbe piaster
could be laid cn. Having marked oa the
11 cor an outline plan of the enlarged section,
a weeden frame work was built up insids the
plan. Then upon this frame-work plaster
was rcughly spread. It eoou resembled, in
a rude way, the corresponding section of the
quarter-size mcdel, but was four times as
large. Then tbe workmen copied in this
pile of plaster every feature of the model
section, measuring, cgais and again, from
dot to dot, correcting by means of plumb
lines, and patiently trying and retrying till
an exact copy, only In proportions four times
aa large, was attained.
"Tbe great irregularity cf the drapery
cade it necessary to pot three hundred
marks on each section, besides twelve hun
dred guide-maris, in order to insure aa ex
act correspondence in proportion between
the enlarged sections of the full size model
end tbe sections of the quarter Bize mo3el.
Each cf tbc-se marks, rxorscver, had to be
measured three times on bath mode's, and
efier tbat cerne all the remensarements, to
prcvo that not a tingle mistake had been
"When these sections in plaster had been
completed, then came the work of making
wocden melds that frhculd bs exact copies,
both in eiz9 and modeling, of the plaster.
These were all cartf ally made by hand. It
was long, tedious and difficult. Each piece
was a moid of a part of the statue, exactly
fitting every projection, depression and curve
cf that portion cf the figure or drapery.
Into these wooden rnolda sheets of mstal
were laid, and pressed or beaten down till
they fitted tbe irregular surfaces of the
mo:d. All the repouieo, or himraerei wort,
was deno from the back, er ins! Je, of the
sheet. If the- mold ia an exact copy o! a part
of tte state?, it is eay to tee tbat th? sheet
cf metal, when cud to lit it, wi:i, whea
taken out end iurncd over, be a copy of that
rait of the statue.
Thtsesbeeta were of copper, and eif-h
wes frcm enc to three yards square. Eich
formed a part of tbe brcrze statue, and of
course no two were alike.
"In this complicated manner, by makia?
first a sketch, then a qnarter-si.a model. t aen
a full 8J.3 model in Eeclions, taen hundreds
of wocden copies, and lastly b7 beating into
shape three hundred sheets of copper, the
enormous ttatue was finished. These three
hundred bent and hammered plates, weigh
ing in all eighty-eight tons, form the outside
of the statue. They are very thin, and while
they fit each other perfectly, it is quite plain
that if they were put together in their proper
cider they wonld never stand alone. These
hammered eheets make the outside of ths
statue; but there must ba aUo a skeleton, a
bony structure IcsidP, to hold it together.
Thrs Is of iron beams.firmly riveted together,
and making a support to which the copper
shell can te fastened."

One of the difficulties o! bonsa cleanin? is
in finding the right place to begin. Start
with the men of the bouse. Let them un
derstand that women do Eot ciean house for
their own amusement, but that it is an iai-
pcrtact work which must b 3 performed, and
wbich will be finished with as little delay
and annoyance as possible. Dy preserving
an even temper we can spara the temper of
these about df. Have a perfect understand

whims or indigestion, cr made the occasion,

quietly, qmckly and thoroughly to the end.
Every spring and fall overhaul a'l eld

HOUSE CLEANING IT.OrEF..

from the waus acd ceiling. Have a backet

carefully. Do rot let any water touch the

directly cn paint makes it yellow and takes
It off. With clean water and scft cloth wash
the window panes and polish dry with a
chamois skin or a clean, soft linen

this purpose. Have the floor well
scrubbed, and when it is perfectly dry have
the carpet laid acd replace the things be
longing to the room. Close the room doors
and prcceed wilh the next room, and so on
until all the apartments in tbe upper story
have bten cleaned, f.xt clean tbe entries
acd stairways of that floor. It is better to
leave the entry and stairway carpets until
the whele house has been cleaned, when they
can all be put down at once. Take tbe
rccms, entries acd stairways of each floor
successively, until tbe cellar is reacaed.
If ycur house is heated oy a furnace, have
all the registers through ths house closed
while the cellar is being swept and cleaned
of rubbish, as the dust will ascend thromh
tbe lines. The cellar should be well white
washed, and lime scattered near the walls.
When tbe dinine-room and kitchsn ara
bsicg cleaned the pantries, dressars and side-
beards should be done first. All the kitchen
utensils must be cleaned and polished and
the range blackened before anything cU9 is
cone, it the work la being done in tbe
country, wbere stores are used Instead of a
furnace, clean cut tbe stoves, blacken, cover
and set them aside until the fall cleaning is
finished, or until fires are again needed,
when they will be ready to put in their
proper places. The latter part of May is tae
brat time for the spring c.eanln?. The tan
cleaning should be dene in October.
