tjlnce she has thrown conventionality to
the four winds and stepped forth upon the
platform of woman's rlgl ts, demanding
that a standard of equality be estabhslied
between her and her bruther. In regard to
ocailotis and their remuneration, there Is
nothing under the sun that a man does,
hich a woman cannot, may not, Indeed
It were better to say has not doi.e.
Aside from thccerydaycallingof teacher,
tj pew riter, dressmaker and milliner, there
are injrinds of lucrative openings, both In
Washington and elsewhere, whose advin

centurj girl, with all of her accustomed
energy and ingenuity, and she has, and is

Found dollars, and plenty of them, too.
M.in of the most prominent and progres

their success to steady training, half so
much as to genuine pluck and the truth
In the old axiom, Tcrsc erance wins
In many instances, they were -women
whose lives always lay In pleasant plates,
until the wheel of fotun In turning forced
them to face life's battles and tolve the
problem of food and shelter, with nothing
more to depend upon than the super
ficial accomplishments of the aeiage so
ciety girl Consequently pluck, and pluck
alone is the Kejnote to their prosperity.
VALUE OF SMALL THINGS.
It has been left to woman, nn.l to her
entirely, to discover the nionetarj aluc
of the small things, which man, often
times in hfs lordly superiority; passes oer
with contempt. If indeed lie eer notices
them at all. Hundreds of women, liv
ing in case and luxurj, are forcible ullus
tra'ions or the fact that It Is the littl .
things that count.
It was left for Mrs. Edward Leavitt,
a woman of shrewd business cnraclt,
to prove in her sex that there is a pr.ic-tu-al
as well .is nn ornamental side to
the possession of flowers

the most fertile porticos of her Conmattl

kinds of plants, violets, carnation and
rotes She now owns and manages the
most perfect and scientific gardens in the
Under acres of glass she raises vio'ets
the size of silver do'Iars, and her carna
tions are said to lie as. large as roses.
With genuine business system, she is up
at dabreak to gather her blossoms, and
1 perfect! deoted to all sorts of lore on
plant diseases and fcrtilizars.
She cuiplojs only the most expert of
workman and personally directs! and in
structs tl.clr work. When in her green
houses, one would never take her to be n
practical, up-todate horticulturist, as
Hhe alwajs wears stjlish gowns, daintj
bonnets nod Immaculate gloves. She re-ali7esalargesumcer-earfromhers.ilcK,
and has her farm and all its workings so
thoroughly systematized that she Klievcs
she could conduct her flower-raising as von
Jloltke did his battles, bj telegraph Her
example has been followed, on a smaller
f-calc, by joung ladies in tins city and a
numlicr of them arc cnjojiug comfortable
Another prosperous feminine gardner is
Sirs. George Stanton riojd-Jones, of Long
or her place, but armed wth rake and hoe,
turns in and works for four or five hours
each da amorg her flower-beds, Lcrrv
vines and melon patches.
Closclj allied to farming is the dairy
bus i es, which, though heretofore almost
untried bj the gentler se"C, has I ecu proven
a profitable career for women by a fonntrlj
wealth j girl of I'ennsjlvanla. who, upon
f Hiding herself thrown upon her own re
sources, witli her parents dependent upon
her for supiort, determined to make ail
experiment In this line.
MONEY IN BUTTER.
Her father's farm, with all of its stock,
having been told, she resolved to lease
the creamery for a jear, and by com
mencing with a boj on a route, work it
up Though the capac.tj of her creamer
was five thousand pounds of butter, jet
the was satisfied to make a small beginning
on four hundred pounds.
During this, her first ear, by her industry
and unriagging zeal, she has increased her
business so rapidly that she Is unable to
supply the demands for I.er butter. She
has acquired a complete knowledge or the
requirements or every department, and
oversees ever thing herself, even to the
shipping, and thus is alwajs cognizant of
the csnet condition of her affairs. In the
course of four or five jcars she expects
to buj buck the old homestead and farm.
Very similar, in some respects, tothc
dairj business and equally as remunera
tive, is poultry raising. For some, the
speckled Dorkings, white leghorns, and
Matelj Fl j mouth Rocks possess a peculiar
fascination. Queen Victoria, among her
other domestic tendencies, numbers a pas
sion for ihickens. She owns a large
aviary filled with fowls or all descriptions
and breeds, and there Is no possession of
her rojal majesty, over which she Is
more enthusiastic Fifty eggs per day are
the average and they go to the Castle,
BuekWgliain Palace, und Osborne Uouse
While few women can lioast of such nn
extensive or elaliorate an affair as the
queen's hencoop, jet there is no reason
whj any woman cannot make money, und
plenty of it, in raising chickens, both
for the eggs and the tender, joung binlR,
for which there is always an immense de
mand and a fair price.
Here In Washington the number of girls
and women, supporting themselves and
Hit lr families by their own cxcrtlonR, are
The frequenters of one of the down
town restaurants, who arc enthusiastic
consumers of the tlelicious soups, little
dream that one frail little woman, by
raiding the ugly green croakers, vvhieh
form such an important part in the in
gredients, supplies herself nml her invalid
mother with the necessaries, anel a Tew
of the luxuries of life.
CARED FOR THE ANIMALS.
Through the chaos of doubt and despair
R-hicli followed her misfortune, the only
tangible Idea that held place In the wander
ing mind, and the only definite form vv hlch
haunted her troubled dream, was not
snakes, as Is often times tro case with the
tired, overworked, overburdened brains of
the lords of creation but frogs, large and
healthy' frogs. Upon recovering and learn
ing of the rapidly increasing demand for
the hoarse Ringers of the genus Rana, she
resolved to take the frog for her mascot.
One woman, with a fondness for pets,
has quite a menagerie, on a small scale.
since dogs, cats, birds nnd.flih of all sorts
and jtlzes shae In Us attention. She be
gan by takitfeMn N unwelcome puppies
which' had bwn condemned to drowning or
starvjatlon4and by, a small amount of care,
exercised Upon them physically and mor
altj, mumiM! to liiiie, uif ucquiiut
unces with their desirable attributes, and
rlnallyrto dispose of them all at a coed
figure.-- As a result of her charity and in
dustry, she carriesa small bank book, whose
pages show' "deposits at which no one, not
even,. man, would sneer.
Another pleasant, paving Industry, that
Is followed In Washington Is the raising
of pigeons for 4ho market, or at least one
ambitious girl to whom the bread of inde
pendence Is Inexpressibly sweet, has made
It n pastime and a means of increasing
the family finances. After carefully study
ing the habits and care of the birds, she
procured a few, as an experiment, and
found such a ready market for fat young
squabs that she enlarged her pigeon house
and added to her stock, and shortly had a
steady demand for all she could raise. Tills
summer she Is enjoying a European trip on
the proceeds of hersales.
BRAVE GIRL'S WORK.
. The raising Industries ail require more
or less oftheuvrootof all elj'-both to
make a start and to pay expenses until
the various" branches lire in good' running
order. What Is the girl to do, whose fortune
lies not perhaps In her face or Voice, but
In her indepcnddncc?'
Let her udiLnrubiUoo and perseverance
to her stock of independence and follow the
example or sorae'W'Xue notable women
of the day, whqj)aje,jjut their shoulders
and their brains to the wheel and evolved
a plan or scheme;whlch, by Its very
originality, must surety pay for its exist
ence. For instance, one brave girl, whose
presence - was a-ncvssary addition to
every social unction Jrr this city before
she was ruthlessfy cast penniless upon the
world, determined' to-turn her practical
knowledge and varied accomplishments to
some account. Accordingly he requcstcda.
few hours' work weeklyumong hcrwealt hy
So extensive Is the repertoire of heruse
fulncss that she met with universally fa
vorable responses. One Tamlly owes
their trimmed and brlghtlj'-shlnlng lamps
to her care, another the spotless, stainless
condition of their silverware, while a
third nev er more know the, woes attendant
upon torn buttonpliolesnndinlosing buttons.
In another section of the city she fills
the place of mother, nurse, governess, and
sometimes even cook, taking care of the
mile ones, picturing oessert. and in fact
doing such things as berall the lot of the
absent factor In the domestic government.
She not only reads and writes for several"
eccentric, antiquated old ladles, but also
washes the'ir pet dogs, and takes them out
for nn airing.
SUPPORTS HER CRIPPLED HUSIUND.
Another example of self-sacrificing de
votion Is a young Washington matron,
not jet twentj-flve jearsof age, who has
found a novel and lucrative means of
supporting herself, thre-e little children
and a helplessly crippled husband. She
lias a laTge clientele among the ladle-,
of the upper circle-, whose numerous social
demands so absorb their time that tln-j
very willingly relinquish their shopping
into her hands.
bhe starts out each morning, receives
her orders and goes hither and thither,
from store to store, arrucd with sample-s,
patterns and me-nioranda interminable, and

she is a valuable assistant in sLggesting

to those whom the etiquette of
society life has to Le acquired to keep
I ace witli the acquisltlen of wealth.

too glad to have the wearisome responsi
bility and care of selecting a new home
taken off their shoulders. They irereiy
state the amount of rent, size of the house,
giving some Idea of the location desired,
and leave the selection to her judgment.
.SUPPORTED BY HER CAMERA.
Talent, stimulated and modified by art,
often produces magnificent results, as In
the case of the author and perpetrator of
posters of national reputation, such as,
"Miss Lraumcri," "Behind the Arras,"
"Falrj Tales" and "The White Wampum."
Miss Ethel. Reed of Newburjbort, Mass.,
who, though only twentj'-one years of age,
ranks as one or the foremost poster-makers
of America, and has sprurg so rapidly
into fame, as to hav e attracted considerable
attention in Europe.
Her career has thus far been brief but
brilliant, since her first poster was accepted
by a Boston newspaper during the winter
of 188B, and the originality and versa
tilitj of her work has brought her more
orders than she can posslblj- fill. Aside
from her wonderful talent, brilliant Im
agination and freedom from conventional
and scholastic rules. Miss Reed has had the
benefit or thorough Instruction In. her. art,
a fact which in others, would tend to lessen
the Tre-shness and in-tinct of origlnalitj of
the productions, but which has onljvadded
to the dash and grace of her illustrations-
Photography, because the modus operandi
is so simple and the number and cost of
necessary instruments so small Is another
wide spreading field for women. One girl,
who lives In the northeastern section of
this dty, cast penniless upon the world
about a ear ago, possessing no talent for
antlilng in particular, and no training In
any direction save amateur photography,
toeik her outfit and set out for the suburbs
to procure orders. "Wealthy suburban resi
dents wanted their country mansions taken
from every side, as well as the various
nooks n nil dells about their grounds. Others
desired sets of photographs In natural posi
tions and views of the towns and sur
rounding countrj- in all their different
Selecting scenes oC general Interest she
composed a little album, which she ex
hibited about the place, soliciting orders.
The beauty of the volume and Its use as a -pleasant
mcrtrip. appealed tocveryoneandln conse
quence this product of her Inventive genius
tuanda readj andcxtenslvcsalc. Aftera
time she tried photographing on china,
which likewise sold rnpldlj'.
MANY FIELDS OrE.V.
The amateur theatrical stars of the
suburbs, with a craze tor performing under
the trees, kept her busy making groups In
all ef their various costumes. Onlookers
and participants alike wanted groups of all
sizes und positions for souvenirs. Thus
her ruturc is nssurcd.
There Is no necessity for any woman to
be idle -for .the want of a vocation to
follow since the advent of the new woman
has opened all the fields hitherto occupied
alone by jncn.aud there Is now scarcely a
known line of trade but what bas a woman
Working at it. Besides art, music and
literature, medicine, law and, iu factall
the professions, as well as all the commer
cial branches, are open to, and rapidly
belnc filled-by women, whllo nian accei
the situation beekusf Jie cannot dtf other
Now there are women barbers, broke
engineers, and agents of every description;
even drummers. Ten jcars ago, a travel
ing saleswoman was eyed with suspicion,
but not so now, for with her grip and
sample cases, she goes wherevershe pleases,
being Just as womanly and fond of her
beloved ones as those of her sex whose
circumstances permit them to remain within
the sheltered precincts of home. In, re
gard to her commercial Ability, she is an
improvement on the drummers of the other
ex, as with her usual energy she throws
her whole soul into her work. "
.. .. , ,, . ,. ,r
A young iauy wno Jives on Maryland
nvenuesouthwest. bears out this assertion.
Sometime ago sho conceived the idea of
suppljlug her friends and neighbors with
tea and coffee, and now she Is as busy as
one girl would naturally wish to lie. She
made arrangements with a wholesale denier
whereby she. scoured her goods nt whole
sale prices? With sample case in hand,
she goes from house to house, soliciting
orders aiid geitlns'the'rn, too. She makes
regular,trip"s'6u Which. Che purchases are
delivered, and has. a llnepf customers who
depend upon her entirely for their break
fast and dinner beverages.

Auy woman with an ordinary amount of
genius and perseverance may easily learn
to bo a successful designer at a salary
ranging anj-whec from $10 to $30 per
week. Every woman of average inte-lli-gence
can comprehend the fundamental
principles ot practical designing. During
the first jear of Instruction many of the
pupils are able to dispose or their designs
to carpet and wall paper manufacturers, nF"
prices rrom $5 to $1 0 for their drawings.
There Is a Inrgerdemand for patternsthan
the designers of this country can produce,
consequently thousands of dollars' worth
are received every year rrom abroad, and
many or the de'signs axe not adapted to the'
machinery .or the manufacturer.
Twent j ears ago such a thing as a
practical woman designer was almost en
tlrely unknown in this country, and though
many women have bcceme successful ele--igners,
it is a fact that there In room

To show the vanities of the lie-Id, there
is an ever-iucreaslug call for designs for
rugs, carpets, oilcloths, wallpaper, laces,

absolute! no limit to the number and
