The Itoston Woman' Umbrella Stylo
of IttrrWrltlng Paragraphs.
At the recent meeting of the Illinois "Wo
man's Press association the following letter
from lire. E. A. Conner, better known as
Eliza Archard, of tha American Press asso
ciation, was read by Dr. Alico B. Stockham.
It had been written in answer to inquiries
put to this lady by Dr. Stockham concern
ing newspaper work for women:
1. What qualifications must a Troman
lave to becotno a fairly successful jour
nalist! Answer A natural inclination for writ
ing, good health, a strong will and indom
itable courage and perseverance. Kot tha
least also is a sunny temper.
2. What preparation!
Answer A fairly good education, the
broader and higher the better, and the habit
of iteady industry. She should be a great
reader of newspapers, particularly of their
telegraphic dispatches, absolutely keeping
track of current events all over tho world.
So sLo will be able to write on any general
subject, which every journalist, who U
master of his profession, can do.
My own success, such as it is, I owo first
to tho habit of work to which my mother
trained me, and next to the severe intellec
tual discipline rceived jears ago in the
course of study at Actioch college.
3. Wbal difficulties stand in her way!
Answer A good many. They are about
hnlf -without and half within herself. The
obstacles without come chiefly from the
trade-spirit opposition of men. They want
tho plums m the profefsion for themselves,
and are therefore apt to try to keep the
women out, and to belittle their work as far
as possible. This is more the case east than
in the west lieu of the west generally are
more just and chivalrous to womca than
those of the older states. Women are not so
plenty out there. In the newspaper field a
woman's chances are best in tho west; in the
field of pure literature they are bet in tho
Tho obstacles within herself are her phys
ical and emotional nature, and her lack of
training to regular business waya A girl
who determines to succeed in journalism
must take tho best care of her health, and
put thoughts of things other than her occu
pation out of her head. People can work in
this world or they can "have a good time,"
ns we say, but they can't do both at oncu.
This 1 learned from sad experience.
She must learn to control her emotions.
To a man there is no such horror in an
office as n crying woman, and I quitn fhare
nis feeling. She must put her pride in her
pocket, forget that the is a woman, and re
member only that she is a business machine
A newspajwr office is not a parlor, and
editors and reporters are too busy to bo
carpet knights. If o hard-working news
paper man in the samo room solaces himself
with an occasiouil cigar, or even in a fit of
alisentrmindedncss drops a 'swear-word" un
lioknonnst, sho noed not pretend to notice,
that is all. lien havo tomo rights. "Tho
boys'1 in a prominent newspaper office I
know of usoJ to tell me that I could never
Income a complete journalist until I had
liaroed to smoke and swum
Our bright, busy girl, who goes Into
jourualiMu, should tike things as they come,
it ith imperturbable good nature and ignore
w hat is unpleasant at first. Then, by and
by, when her masculine confreres come to
know her they will regard her with a feel
ing of brave comradeship and as a good
fellow. They will help instead of hindering
her. The disagreeable things will cease of
themselves. Some of the pleasantcst associ
ations of my life are conueclel with news
paper oiHces. Aud I mint say tht as a
cla I have found men journalists the mo
accomplished and agreeable of their sex. AH
tilings w illy ield at last before n determined
spirit and perseverance and industry. The
womnn who succeeds in newsjiaper work
.must prepare to give up most of the social
enjoyments so d ar to the hearts of most
j oung ladies. It will be better if sho gives
up all thoughts of matrimony until her suc
cess is made. That is what many great act
resses and singers have done. Domestic life
and the building of a career by a woman
will not harmonize in this age of the world.
Is the caicer worth the sacriQce! Yes, a
J. What course would she best pursuo to
gain n footing!
Answer I know of nothing better than to
write short and lively communications and
eend them to editors. They will mostly be
rejected, but if they are really worth any
thing they w ill see the light by-and-by. It
is best at first not to expect pay for them.
If they are printed a good number of times,
then at length tho giftod writer might
modestly hint that if the able editor cared
further for her contributions porbaps ho
would not mind putting a proper price on
them. Sometimes it is possiblo to obtain on
introduction to an editor through a friend
or acquaintance. The chances are Letter
when this can bo done. Occasionally a
brilliant school girl attracts attention by
her writing, nnd a place is made for her
without trouble. Hut it is not easy to stcuro
a footing. Like another journey in a
famous poem, tho ''roads winds up hill all
the way" for most. Hut I don't know any
thing that is easy that is wurth while.
Finally, our bright girl will not lie a reg
ular journalist until she gets thj training of
one. The only way to get that is just to go
into an ofilco and get it
5. What pecuniary support can sho reason
ably expect, and how long may she have to
wait before counting on any incomol
Answer She can earn a fairly good liv
ing and lay up something. It is a sbads
better than s:hool teaching. There are
perhaps half a dozen newspaper women in
the country who receive (3,0tiU to $0,000 a
year. The pay of tho rest ranges from &M
to 50 a week, with far more at the former
figure than the latter. Many add to their
incomes by correspondence outside of the.r
How long she will havo to wait before
getting an income depends wholly on cir
cumstances. I rerehed $10 for my first
six months of nevrspiper work. Most will
bo able to do better than that, honerer, if
they have any success at all. Inter Ocean.
A New Method ot Wuhlng.
Take S4ven pounds of bar soap, two pounds
of sal soda, one oun.l of lime (unslackedl,
two ounces of borax, one ounce of alum,
one ounce of benzine (deodorized), and put
them together in the following manner: Cut
the soap in one gallon of cold water, melt it
slowly until free from lumps (I make it in
my boiler on the hack of the stove), now lay
the sal-coda an! lime in a deep s! and
pour two gaUons of boiling water over it,
stir and let it settle, then pour oft this lya
and odd to tha melted soap, stir and keep
hot but do not I oil it; now put the alum
and borax in two pint cups about half full
of hot water, dissolve and add to tb soap,
Stir well nnd beat together a few minutes,
than remove from the fire and stir in Uw

Theruleforusingthisis one pound to very
seven gallons of soft water. I have medium

foamy suds and pour over my white clothes,
punch them down well and cover the tab
quickly with a blanket and let them soak
one Lour, one night, or from Saturday even

most convenient. Then I wring them out
and put la the boiler with one pound of soap
end seven gallons of cold water and boil
gently twenty-five minutes more or less as
the clothes may require. Rinse thoroughly
in two waters and blua. After wringing
out the white clothes soak the colored ones

How to Entertain Company.
To appear a pleasant, cheery hostess
throughout an evening "party," or area the
short-lived call is truly no easy thing nor
can some people ever learn the art. Tact
is an essential, and an absolute unselfishness;
the guests must be first, and they must not
feel any sacrifice of time nor attention too
keenly. All women should aim at being
bright conversationalists, not startling nor
wonderf uL but amusing, refined and espe
cially light of touch. Long stories are usu
ally intolerable bores, and a serious, slow,
heavy way or looking ai maners in kuci
is an infliction. Grievances of any sort are
test kept hidden; a sprightly acquaintance
with the affairs of the day, a flattering anx
iotv as to others' opinions, an absence of
slang or mannerisms, of boastful egotism,
or self-depreciation, tact, tact, above all,
tatt, these make the agreeable hostess, the
woman one wisnes to nnu ai name m one a
round of calls.
Parlor chairs should be, for the most
part, light and easily moved, with just a
few of a more substantial sort for those who
are sLi feet tall or weigh 200 pounds. Peo
ple can't talk a rod or two apart, nor can
they drag that abomination a 'patent
rocker," (don't have rocking chairs in your
parlcrf) across to tho nearest neighbor. A
sofa superinduces conversation.
Havo little things lying about the room
which must of themselves call out comment
and gi e your guests something to da Al
bums, and piles of photographs; birthday
books; a pig album where one has to draw
a pig and write one's name underneath,
with closed eyes; scrap books, particularly
of pictures, and such work as Bellew's
'Comic Primer," and The Good Things of
Life,' all these are hosts in themselves.
Games ore almost invariably successful;
the older and staider the company tho more
riotous they are likely to become. Bean
bags are a good thing to havo in the house,
and Logomachy proves entertaing in many
circles. But simple, childish games, (I don't
mean Copenhagen), and the simpler tho bet
ter: 'Going to Jerusalem,", "Vacant chair,"
Charades, and thi like, prove more divert
ing than any other form of tho entertain
ment. Wo women make work of company, and
we grow, many of us, to look upon it as an
evil, necessary, perhaps, but always an eviL
Could we see the best way, which is also, as
truly, the easiest, we might be not grudg
ingly given to hospitality, and all learn the
lesson few do not need what goes to make
up a model hostess Ruth Hall, in Good
The Itoston Woman's Open Umbrella.
The following in regard to tho Boston
woman with open umbrella is delightfully
true: The reason is that one nover knows
when an umbrella is needed here, .and con
stant companionship sets one at case. The
only recourse from colds and other ills, that
would keep the progressive Boston woman
from the latest theosophical discourse, is to
always be prepared for storms. The result
is that a Boston woman's umbrella is as im
portant as her gloves, for it is always with
her. It Is small, natty and marks her social
and mental enfranchisement by the handlo.
This varies from a huge ring or knob of
solid silver or whitest of ivory to a plain
wooden handle with a crook which the inde
pendent ownor may hang over her arm, or
by which I have seen her steady her sway
ing figure by booking through a strap in tho
crowded horse cam Tho fabric of tho Bos
ton woman's umbrella is always silk. Tho
very shop girl's, realizing the importance of
this fetich, attend to the requirements of
the unwritten law of tho umbrella Lefcre
they buy a new hat Better last year's hat
than a shabby umbrella.
Having provided herself, she takes it in
her "daily walks abroad," as an Irish or
German woman does her baby, and carries
it much the samo, with the dainty debou
nalre, or female suffrage handle just visible
in front of her erect right shoulder, and thj
end that puts your eyes out quite out of
everyone's way. Of course sho tucks it un
der her arm, still with its handle to the fore,
but slanted downward so that the ferrule
snd is safe again in the folds of hor trim
tailor gown. Tho umbrella is to tho Bo.ton
girl what the fan is to a Spanish senorita.

A Stjlc or letter-Writing.
Tho diameter and stylo of letter-writing
changes quite as much as anything clso in
the world of fashion. Tho neatly written,
closely lined epistloi of former times look
as provincial no w as by-gone costumes. The
present mode is of a Uashy style, quite in
keeping w ith the spirit of tho times. Kough

a spran Hug chirography go to make up tha
hurried notes one receives nowadays in lisu

In tho hurry cf tho moment and with a
business-like air dashes off a note covering
seeral pages, it is true, but containing
about as much matter as could easdy bo put
upon the despissd postal card, and then her
duty is done. Tho old saying that a letter
shows the character of tho one to whom
it is written, if it be true, would argue the
modern society woman a trifle too blase, or
too fast, one or the other. There is as
much character in a woman's writing as in
her voice, and one feels a little awed npon

hearing a course, gruff voice proceed from
the rosy lip. ot a fair woman. In soma

The floating trade is given equal chances
with its larger though equally unfortunate
rival, and none or few of the early breakf st
ers have any idea of the poor, patjmt,hnngry,
mortals who have preceded them. In this
procession, which comes and is gone before 6
o'clock every morning in the year, one sees
poor, pale seamstresses, shabby but respect
able men. penurious Dutch, Swedes, and
Poles, laborers and clerks of every nation

Struggling housekeepers, women who try to
support themselves keeping boarders and
others who have to subordinate everything to
economy, never buy fresh goods, and indeed
need not suffer any privation if they only
know how to manipulate the old. Bread that
can not be steamed will work over as toast,
custard f rim, and puddings, and there is no
roll too old to be rejuvenated if one knows how
use a steamer. Although the writer may be
branded as a traitor, it may be interesting to
the readers to know that the restwuratevir who
serves the most delicious rolls in Chicago,
makes them out of old goods bought from
every baker who has any left over. When a
customer calls for fresh roils a couple of the
articles, hard enough to dent a turnip, are
thrown into a steamer. When thoroughly
moistened they are put in a hot oven and al
