SOME NEW AND CLEVER FORMS
The Society for the Discourage
ment of Divorce "Will Be
One of Them.
It is in autumn that woman's fancy
lightly turns to thoughts of clubs and
It Is to the members assembled Hint
wives and daughters now tarry, con
sider and solve Hie knotty problems of
life; as, for example, lu the new society
for the discouragement of divorce. The
sisterhood includes in its membership
all those serious-minded women who arc
grieved to tee that though their sex has
advanced In many respects onto a higher
plane, the management of husbands Is at
a very low ebb. and tLe frequency of di
vorces promises to become a blot In the
path of emancipated femininity. The club
in four monthly meetings considers nil
(bete things, and any member i prnileged
to cite any serious case of conjugal diffi
culty that has come before her eyes, and
hear the club's advice as to its tcttlement.
She must always speak in the third per
son, and use assumed names, after which
the members In turn deliver their opinions
on the cae, argue it out, and at length
draw up a set of resolutions to be handed
dowu to the pMlntiff. There is no ques
tion too small or too large for the sister
hood for the promotion of matrimonial hap
piness to grapple with, and the opinions
handed down nearly always counsel long
tolerance, with even the most deeply of
A good many members of thesisterhood,
who have passed Into the stage of stately
matronhood, also owe their allegiance to a
dancing class, that is open only to elderly
women, borne of them grandmothers.
Few enough of the sex, after reaching
thedignlty of forty-five years, care to dance
in public and share their daughter's part
ners, though their toes may be as light and
their hearts respond as gaily as twenty
Tbcchnpcrons' dancing class has been the
outcomeof this desire for youthful exercise,
and on slated mornings, at 11 o'clock, a
score ot dames, with more or less frosted
heads, witli a gleam of latent frisklness In
every eye, and their feet shod in correctest
patent leather pumps, bustle Into some
member's long drawing-room nnd go
whirling down the waxed floor to a be
guiling waltz strain.
The only men of the party arc a danc
ing master and a group of stolid German
musicians, stationed under the palms in the
hall, for the dames dance together, polk,
walk, glide, and gallop through all the
latest steps, pair off for the lancers,
sometimes spend the whole morning over
a gcrman with favors and Invariably
wind up with a good old Virginia reel
or Highland schottlsh, showing as much
grace. In spite ot their sometimes, noble
girth, as the sllmest debutante and as
much ginger In their heels as West Point
cadets. At 1 o'clock the dance Is over
and at ball past the dining room doors
are opened to the sort ot luncheon twenty
hungry women are bound to relish after
two hours' hard exercise.
tt docs not require commanding acu
men to translate the meaning of the
Prowlers that has drawn Into its r.Tits
the very flower of this winter's flock of
debutantes. Since last autumn they have
proved the strength of their principles by
going to one of the ma-ked balls of the
Art StudcinV League, by dluing In n far
West Bide restaurant, much frequented by
literary Bohemian's, where one coots one'a
own dinner over the coals in big braziers,
by the theater panic in the gallery of the
Rods, by attending an anarchistic meet
ing in the lower lily, and otherwise teeing
lire on the oilier tide. The Prowlers move
lu large Imdies of eight and ten, pi
loted by a louple of efficient chaperuUH,
and go on bl-moutlily prowls with results
both edifying and amusing.
THE TOAST CLUB.
There is something both frivolous and
instructive already shadowed forth in
the first meetings of the Toast Club, that
acknun lodges Boston as the city of its
, nativity, and is composed of a sltong
body of those women who can achieve
anything when once braced by a hand
It is wticn the tide of the menu has
ebbed lo coffee and the butler sets before
every woman a glass of that innocently
wicked lotatlon, green swizzle, that the
ho-te...3 and tonst mistress rises for her
remarks. She leads olf with a few choice
sentences and calls upon some guest, who
has only received warning as she entered
the dining-room, to respond to the toast
given at the bottom of her menu.
Now the rule of the club is that no woman
can refuse to lerpord, that her speech must
not consume over four minutes and It must
lie on the implratlon if the moment Not
less ll.an five leasts are proposed and an
swered at every luncheon, one oftliem must
always be to the hostiss ard the other four
are fixed by the committee. "The New
Woman." "The Tuture of the HucuauL"
"Suggestions for the Encouragement of
Masculine Emigration to Bummer Re
sorts," "The Housekeeper's Responsibil
ity in Street Cleaning," is a fair sample
of the questions ventilated in the requi
site four minutes allowed for each of
At least one of the subjects must be
serious In Its nature and seriously treated,
and when oil the green swizzle has disap
peared the women ballot on the toast by
writing upon slips of paper, dropping them
in a big silver loving cup, and when the
votes are counted she who is conceded to
have made the cleverest toast Is entitled
to wear till the next meeting a charming
club pin. This Is a wreath of gold laurel
leaves set with pearls.

GOSSIP PURE AND SIMPLE
Evolution of the Afternoon Tea and
Things Heard There.
Sew Hooks Are the Sole Toplo at
Some Little Gossip.
It is a matter for congratulation to those
who have followed the fortunes of the tea
table, from the rin,t topply little affair,
with Its impracticable furniture, the too
gorgeously embroidered cloth, the wobbly
hot water pot, the lamp of which could
rarely be Induced to burn, or It it did burn
was never manageable, but spilled the
alcohol over clow and carpet, which the
flame followed, creating no uproar of ex
citement and leaving black holes, when the
fire was finally extinguished by the united
blowing of the entire company It was in J
Ibis service, by the wuy, that Mr. Fox
Ilunlcr's beautiful mustache was sac
rmced to the present sulmuiiiiuI and
elegant table with Its appointments, mat
the lea-table is an established tact.
In the begiuniiig only the ultra-fashionables
arfecied arternoon tea. Nowadays
every body 01 any pretensions, whatever i.us
tea served between -4 and D o'l lot-. And
it is well served too, quite as well as it is
served lu a fashionable London drawing
room, where perfection la this function
has been reached. The tea 13 hot, tho
cu.-s arc generous and the wafers are
crisp. Some hospitable matrons serve
murnns, hot, toasted, buttered muffins,
which are very appealing these cool after
noons. Years ago, when the afternoon tea was
first introduced, a long-sum ring society
nun once said to me, lu couridence, tliat
he wondered this function had been left
out of the plagues or Job; he thought all
endure would have been a mere bagatelle
In comparison to this one.
"1'cnlerduy," he said, "at Mrs.Nouveau's,
I was glvch a miunre cup on an oblong
saucer, which, although it was of priceless
Sevres. I could i.ot drink out of It, but
pilled the weak, warm stuff, school
boy fashion, all down the front of my frock
coal. The spoon was .1 gold trident, studded
with turquoise, which would not stay out,
but rell every time I moved. Finally the
minister from Bagdad put one of his ample
feet upon It. and I h.ne been In bad odor
with lira. Nouveau ever sir.ee."
Hut such discomfort is a thing of the past,
nod afternoon tea a pleasure, "under the
subtle influence of which tongues are
loosened and gossip stimulated. All this
occurred to me one afternoon recently at
a house where thchostessls ne.irlyascha rul
ing as the host, and where coinersation
is always as merry as the traditional mar
The very prcttiwt. yonnge-t and happiest
yo.i ng ma t nu whom I met 011 1 hla particular
afternoon was Mrs. Ward Thorou. She is
still in mourning for hcrfathcr, and the little
'.lack toque shy' wore with its nodding
aigrette, was very becoming. Mr.and Mrs.
on E'glitcenth street, and there Is no ccsles
house In towiitforjust two iieoplctolivcln.
The wonder if that Mrs.Plntcrcould ever
luve been induced to give It up.
Evcrybrdy seemed to have a great deal
to say! but it struck me as peculiar that
after months away from town, at one of
their first reunions the convcratlDiijf these
fashionable foil:, should have turned on
Imok.; which is jdoubtle-. owing to the
fact that In ynjiwr there is Invariably an
omnivorous cousmnpllon of light litera
ture by those people who dance and dine
I l.ung my1 dlmlcKhed head at the lo
quacious eloquence of my co-tca-drinkers
over looks that I had never heard of. A
man who has written several succovrul
novels himself said that Maliock's "The
Heart of Life" was the IkioS of the year,
but he was disputed blankly by a lilerary
spinster who said this opinion was disloyal
for an AmerjCuhi since the book was as
undemocratic as possible, and written in
the interest of royalty and monarchical te
stltulious. She gave the palm to John
Oliver Hobb's "The Gods, borne Mortals
and Lord WUkct'ham." A pale little
student of pscholegy. who sat on theend
of a div.iu. nnd eousiiiueil tery much and
very weak tea.maoea bold stand for Ben
son's "The Judgment B.snks" as the liook
of tho year. At which opitiKin eeryune
ninth! Pin. neither would they Ii-tcu lo
any laudation of Grant Allen's historical
production, "The Woman Who Did."
"What can 0110 exiiecl from such a I'lill-i-tine
crowd?" lie asked me. aud retired
liehlud his seveuth cup of tea
The conversation, at any rate, was be
yond my depth, and I was very glad when
it was interrupted by the arrival of Com
mander Reisinger, who came in to leave
his. p. p. c. This prince or naval officers
sans oil the Mouocacy on Saturday and his
destination Is China.
No one could make him admit that the
idea of a three years' cruise whs distaste
ful to him, but Commander Rei?h.ger is a
pluUropkcr fiom Ills point of view -whatever
is, is right." Tlie commander was very
smiling, very amiable nnd very gracious,
and liefore he left promised to send us each
a piece of bric-a-brac, at which the literary
spinster, who dotes upon being called a
blue stocking, begged him not to send her
a modern piece-
One of the new diplomats, who 13 Indus
triouely learning his Washington, asked
me, among other things, why t he big brown
stone house on H slrcct, near the Arlii.gton
Hotel, was called Buckingham Palace. "It
la not a leetle like ze Buckingliam Palace,"
he paid, earnestly- And lie is, of course,
right. It Is not "a leetle" like Buckingham
Palace, and, after explaining to hint In
French. German and English, I finally made
bun underetand that this big, brown house,
built more than halt a century ago by
Matthew St. Clair Clark. Clerk of the
Houe of Representatives, and occupied by
Lord Arhburton. the English Minister, fi
nally came into the possession of Mr. Cole
man, from whom it defceiiileil to his
daughter. Mrs. Freeman, then to her daugh
ter, who married Lieut. Buckingham, of
the Army, whose friends facetiously dubbed
his new domicile Buckingham Palace. I
am convinced that my foreignfriend thought
this bit of American humor very stupid, al
though he laughed appreciated-.

She Cumetb. Not.
I wait among the rosc3, love.
In quite the best romanticstyle.
And yet yon look not fromabevc
To fling me one bewitching smile;
Now, every heroine In books,
A s surely all young ladies know.
Appears just once, at least, and looks
To where hcslngs below.
Tradition asks It, yet I win
Forbear to question this delay.
This strirlng to make fairer atill
That which Is beautiful alway;
I do not sing that tin we meet
The sunshine comcth nevermore;
These things, alas! however neat.
Have aU been said before.
No paling stars bedeck the north.
No gray dews hover on tlie lawn.
I do not sing, "Lean forth. lean forth
To see the rosy-fingered da wo."
The boor is now precisely noon.
Stern prose Inspires my one refrain;
Unless my lore Is ready soon
We shall not catch oar train.

To Prevent Chapping.
As cold weather approaches women try
to devise means for preventing bands ami
lil from chapping. An excellent remedy
to prevent chapping Is cold cream. The
manicurist told me also that it whitens the
skin more than any preparation. It has
taken the place of the old-time remedy
mutton suet. It should be well rubbed into
Ekln, and gloves, preferably white, slljn-d
an. The palms ot the hands should be slit
In several places to allow the air and pre
vent cramp of the mnccles. and the finger
tips clipped off. Vaseline should neverbe
allowed to touch the hands. It turns the
Bkin yellow and leaves a stain on the naiU
that is bard to clear away.
A New Evenlnp Game.
A new form of evening entertainment
Is called "heart party." A large heart
made ot red flannel clcth. Is pinned
upon a sheet hung from a door. In the
center of the heart is sewed a small circle
of white. Arrows of white cloth, 'with
pins placed therein, are given to the
guests, each arrow bearing a number,
the number corresponding to a list where
on the names and numbers of the guests
are placed. The point of the game, of
course Is to see which person when blind
folded, win pin the arrow nearest to the
center spot ot white. Four prizes may
be offered, one each for the persons coming
nearest to the center, and one each to
those coming furthest from the bull's
eye. The Mornliiir, Ew-iilni; and Sunday
