An Original Jewel.
Mere diamonds and rubies and pearls
are nothing to bo proud of in this age
of ori?;nality. One's jewels must be
odd to merit any attention from the
connoisseur A playful and pretty con
ceit for a brooch is three pink moon
stones in r. row. On each stone is cut
the jolly, sleepy face of a fat baby
moon. On each bald head is a cap of
diamonds, tying under the chin with
a diamond bow.
White Tor Thin Women.
A well known portrait painter ad

It gives a fuller effect and in the case
of a very slender sitter greatly en

A Traveling Librarian.
A new way to earn money has been
discovered by a Minneapolis woman,
who has constituted herself a travel
ing librarian, organizing and catalog
ing libraries wherever she finds a de
mand for her work. Her experience
tiius far leads her to the conclusion
that this work will offer large oppor
tunities to women. She says that to
bri successful as a library organizer it
is necessary to have, in addition to
the regular library training a thorough
knowledge of bookkeeping, and ability
to read French and German. She fre
quently spends weeks or even months
on a single engagement
Spangled Hands and Feet.
Stockings and gloves embroidered
In silver and colored spangles are to
be had if one's tastes run to glittering
dress accessories. A black or a pale
green stocking with a dark green ser
pent embroidered on the instep, the
body twisting around the ankle and up
the leg, is enough to give most wem
en the creeps. For stage purposes these
eccentricities doubtless have their
uses, but the average woman is con
tent to gaze, shudder and pass on.
Suede gloves with insertions of lace
or designs in embroidery upon them
looking rather well on slim hands and
black evening gloves brilliantly em
broidered with silver are certainly os
tentatious, but one can imagine them
and a small, sparkling fan.
Proper Dregs for Children.
No persons need more careful cloth
ing than infants and children. In
them tho body surface is relatively
large and their heat producing pow
ers are feeble. For this reason they
need to be covered up as much as pos
sible, with loose, light clothing, so
that the natural movements of their
bodies may have full play. When pos
sible the undergarments should be of
wool; the prevalent idea that children
should be thinly clothed, with more or
less bare limbs, so that they may be
come hardened, is contrary to all phy
siological teaching and absolutely
crueL On the other hand, unnecessary
swathing of children in wraps and
comforters is to be deprecated, and it
does equal harm in the other direction
by rendering them tender and pecu
liarly susceptible to chills.-American
Childhood of Jenny Lind.
Jenny Lind was baptized as Johanna
Lindborg. The nickname by which she
became famous was given her in her
childhood. Her mother lived in two
different tenements in Stockholm, No.
43 Jakobsbergsgatan and No. 32 Mas
tersamuelgatan, while she was an in
fant, and it is not definitely known in
which she was born. Both claim the
honor, but the weight of evidence
seems to favor the former, which is in
a short street in the manufacturing
section of the city and mostly occupied
by artisans of various sorts. The oth
er place is on a better street near the
centre of the manufacturing section.
A Mr. Lindhahl, who holds a posi

Interesting collection of letters and
documents relating to the early life of
Jenny Lind. He has certified copies
of the record of her birth and christen

which, when she was 14 years of age,
decided that her parents were unfit
persona to have charge of her and ap
pointed the director of the Opera House
as her guardian. He also has a num

she was a child and afterward when
she was a young woman in Paris stu Jy

The Umbrella of Fashion.
For the present the smart umbrella
is exceedingly small, with a case*in
the same shade as the silk. At one
time lt was feared that we should
adopt leather cases, heavy, ugly things
that had nothing to recommend them
but novelty, but good sense and taste
have como to the rescue. The favorite
coloring for the silk is in very dark
shot taffetas where the black tint pre
dominates; in fact'we must guess at
the warm coloring beneath the black
more than really define it. The frame
ls in steel, very light and burnished,
but without the slightest attempt at
varnish. The stick is composed sim
ply of well polished wood without any
ornament, either at the handle or the
point Even the pointed piece of metal
at the tip ls suppressed. It is, there
fore, necessary to find the nature of
wood that meets all the requirements
of solidity and suppleness. From New
Caledonia and Australia some of the
finest are imported, but the French
makers have a preference for their own
growth, as they say that the coloring
is richer and more varied in graduated
tones. For the winter, therefore, fash
ion dictates small umbrellas with plain
wooden sticks, with no ornamentation.
Neither the perforated rings nor mon
ograms in gold are considered in good
taste this year. The only difference
between a gentleman's or a lady's um

For the Homo Dressmaker.
To renovate rr not to renovate is a
question to be considered from this
point-namely, whether 'tis better to
have a new gown or to send a really
good frock and half the cost of a new
one and have it returned in all re
spects as a new toilet One's intimate
friends will no doubt recognize the
gown, but in all other ways it practi
cally takes its place as a new gown.
A good black dress invariably pays
for renovating, but all queer and un
common shapes, either in skirt or bod
ice, are best left alone unless the ma
terial can be matched or is of the
type allowing for combination. Many
bodices of the seamless or stretched

There are many garments useful for
country and seaside wear which can
be smartened and brought up to date
at a very moderate expense, but they
should bo originally of good quality

trouble and expense of alteration. An
old fashioned coat and skirt can be
remade into a smart custome with
about one and a half yards of new
cloth to match. The skirt must be
made into a tight top part fitting a
shaped flounce, and the remainder and

blue or brown cloth can be made with
a separate flounce of another color,

light color between. The old-fashioned
basque coat cuts into a smart bolero
to the waist, and the neck can be fin

Women In Business.
Thc remark is ouen made that wom
en known nothing of business. In re
gard to a large majority of women
whose business it is to engineer happj
homes this statement is untrue. It
is also unjust to thousands of sensible
women who are necessarily compelled
to take care of themselves and their
families, and who have ably demon
strated that they are capable of doing
so with as much shrewdness and wis
dom as men who are their peers. The
mass of women show no business
knowledge in the methods of earning
money, because there is some one to
earn money for them, and to them is
?;lven the province of home. Women
are likely to be contented with the
care of the home so long as the support
of the family ls undertaken by men
whose natural province it is When it
becomes a woman's place to enter tho
business world she has in thousands of
instances demonstrated that she has as
keen wit as a man and is as capable
of receiving training in business.
Hundreds and thousands of women
have demonstrated their ability to com
pete in the business world, not as mere
wage earners, but as financiers. These
women know something of business,
though undoubtedly they labored at
first under the disadvantage of being
considered women who know nothing
Numberless women's exchanges have
appeared in recent years in the larger
cities, and these business enterprises
have generally propered. In the state
of Massachusetts alone, in 1885, there
were 305 women who were farmers.
These young women possess the disad
vantage of being phyically weaker and
less capable of outdoor work than their
brothers should be, yet in spite of this
the records show that women have
thrived in this occupation as well as
their husbands and fathers did.
In matters of business habits men
are often found wanting. Nineteenth
century exprience shows that women
who have entered the business world
.are, as a rule, more conservative than
men. They do not often do brilliant
things in business, because they do
not hazard so much. Instances of sen
sible business women who risk their
all on chance gains are not large,
though there are thousands of half
educated women, inexperienced as chil
dren, who are victimized by charlatans
just as men brought up in a similar
manner would be. The cases of swin
dling of men are almost as common
as those of women. There is reason
tc believe that among the thousands
of wage earning women in the land
it is rare to find one who persistently
speculates, though business women
have opportunity to spend money in
this way.-New York Tribune.

make will soon appear.

Stoorod Into a Junior Partnership by l,

"Speaking of taking in partners,"

"Going downtown one summer
morning on a Ninth avenue elevated
train, I saw sitting opposite to me a
young man who caught my fancy, a
substantial, earnest, straightforward
looking chap, whose looks I liked first
rate. He was reading a paper; and
presently he tore off from tras"* paper
an advertisement leaf that he didn't
want and threw it out of the window,
or tried to, for as a matter of fact it
didn't go out. A gust of wind with
just the right twist to it came along
at just that moment and blew trie pa
per hack, to fall on a vacant seat next
"And as it fell something in it caught
his eye, and he picked up that part
which he had just been trying to throw
away and began earnestly to read it,
and ended up by folding it carefully
and putting it in his pocket.
"About four minutes after Fd got in
here this morning this same young man
walks in and applies for a place that we
had been waiting for somebody to fill?
Our advertisement for a man for it wa3
in that paper which I had seen this
young man try to throw away, and
which a gust of wind by one chance
in a million or more, had blown back
upon him and in such a manner as to
fix his attention.
"As a matter of fact I hadn't liked
thc young man's act of throwing the
paper out of an elevated car window;
a paper floating down and around as
that would do might frighten horses
and lead to no end of trouble and lots
of damage, but no one man thinks
about everything, and he'd learn better
about this, I knew, and so as a matter
of fact I took this young man on the
spot, on my first impressions of him.
He far more than made good and in
due course of time he came into his
junior partnership, literally . and truly
blown into it.

The very newest idea In leather
decoration is an entire mantel in a
rich shade of green, which was ar
ranged for a Long Island woman who
was dissatisfied with the ugly mantel
in the dining room of her country
home and was advised to try the effect
o? hiding the disfiguring projection
with leather. The result was a com
plete success and several of her friends
have followed her example to the ex
tent of having leather mantel drapery,
if not entirely encasing the chimney
corner. For an Indian room or a den
a hanging of leather in a rich vermil
ion tone, with an Indian's head skil
fully etched on it, lends a decidedly
bright bit of color.
Something About Starch.
It sounds contradictory to advise
making cold starch with hot water;
but those who have once tried it find
its results most satisfactory. This does
not necessarily mean that the water
must be boiling hot, but comfortably
Starch made in this way works much
better than that made with cold water.
A little salt added to cold starch is an
improvement, preventing it from stick
ing to the iron.
It is always better to let clothes re
main rolled some time after starching
them, as they will then iron much
better. If after these precautions you
find the starch inclined to stick to
the iron, it is because it is too stiff.

A Stitch in Time.
All housekeepers who look well to
the ways of their households appreci
ate the value of a stitch in time. The
principle inculcated by the proverb
may be carried to all departments of
the house. The household belongings
which are kept continually in order by
bung mended as soon as they need
mending cannct suddenly give out and
need to be replaced. Prudent house
keepers keep a pot of glue ready to be
melted when needed, a cement bottle
for china ,and once a month or once
a week, as it may be convenient, they
repair breakages in china or in furni
ture. It is more trouble to learn to
use a soldering iron, but this can be
done, and when necessary a hole in
tinware or in almost any commoit-jnet
al can be mended. Usually all that is
necessary is to stop a leak in time,
so it will grow no larger.
It is an excellent practice to keep a
list of everything about the house that
has gone awry, and every six months
at least, if not oftener, see that it is
made right. The best time is just after
the spring and fall housecleaning. If
this is done the house can be easily
kept in order, and at much less cost
than when every repair needed is left
until it has become necessary to the
comfort of the home that-it.should
be attended to.-New York Tribune.

complicates things is that the scabbard
was found and claimed. The chagrin of
