Women Condemn the Danciug.
A report on tho Midway plaieance was

ieauties by members of tho board. The
committee had made no report and had
taken no action.
! But the women needed no report to set
|b»zn talking. Isabella Beccher Hooker
was the first to speak. She reviewed
briefly .the character of the famous street
und said in conclusion: >
"I think we had better invite that quar
ter, not in bulk, as has been suggested,
ibut very much in detail."
"Do you mean to say," cried one of
ithe women, jumping to her feet as Mrs.

This brought Mrs. Barker to the plat
form. "I will take second place to no

tho theaters there to meet socially the
members of this board. They are, many
mt them, not representatives of foreign
nations, but women of Chicago, chosen
to act these disgusting parts. Can you
endure the thought that your sons and
daughters should witness such spectacles?
I consider it our duty rather than to en
tertain these people to enter a protest
against them and demand that the places
where they perform be closed. Appoint
me as a committee, and I will plead with
these women heartily at whatever cost,
but I strongly object to tbe board put

Then Mrs. Barker sat down and cried
as if her heart would break. Mra. Felton
hastened to tender her support. ''I want
to say," she said, "that I went with Mrs.
Barker into these places, impelled, like
ber. by a high sense of duty. Regarding
our experiences I can only add that I had

Amateur Dressmaking Fad In London.
The amount of amateur dressmaking
going on at present is astonishing, aad
the fnu thero is over it and interest taken
in it are most encouraging to beginners.
Even sedate fathers of families are taken
into tbe confidence of their girls about
their dressmaking doings, while brothers
find it a fruitful form'of chaff, and
though pretending to decry really ad
mire the skill of their own and other fel
lows' sisters. Girls who have no other
occupation in life find that dressmaking
is a great interest to them and an im
mense .saving in their dress allowance.
They spend a few hours with their scien
tific dresscutting charts, the best and the
most original of these being so far sim
plified now as to be within easy compre
hension of the most ordinary intelligence,
and straightway they fashion the bar
gain of a pound or so into an up to date,
smart and charming costume of which
they feel justly proud.
A dress which was bought at a sale
for 80 shillings, inclusive of all necessa
ries for its build, is to be worn next
week. It is of fancy cloth, the color
willow leaf green. The skirt has a deep,
frayed out rijiche of shaded green silk

A Clover Hairdresser.
Thero is in Washington a professional

la. A note is sent to his wife asking per
mission to show her a more becoming
way of arranging her hair. Some com
prehensive hint ia volunteered with a
mild compliment. The letter is marked
"personal.'" a verbal answer is requested,
and in eight out of ten attempts the New
York hairdresser gets an answer to call.
Oddly enough, it is the husband who
urges her claim. Ho wants his wife to
look like other women. At home she was
all right, but in cosmopolitan life she is
something of a fright, and although he
despises himself for the thought he is
ashamed of her. In an hour's time the
hairdresser puts a new face on the wom
an from the woods.
She may not use an inch of false hair,
but she wields a crimping iron in a way
that takes years of farm life from her
appearance. The troubled, shy face is
not .made ridiculous. Instead of curls
the iron gray hair is cleaned, brushed
until it is fluffy, crimped enough to rip
ple and look three times its own quanti
ty, and then it is dressed. Instead of the
long iron wire hairpins little 6hell pine
are used, and tho coils are so lightly
caught that the wondering Hoosier wife
reckons it will not be long before they
all drop out. Women who refuse to have
their hair cnt futo a hang are provided
with a false front, but in every instance
the transformation is admirable. The
hill ia sent to the congressman, and it is
cheerfully paid.—San Francisco Argo
Miss Hill Complains.
The mischiof resulting from what may
be called vicarious beneficence or the dis
tribution of alms at other people's ex
pense is complained of by Miss Octavis
Hill, known fis well iv charitable circles
in this country as in England. The Lon
don county council has before it schemes
for buildings for the working classes,
and Miss Hill points out that the advo
cates of such measures must consider
that the bulk of the working people of
London either can or cannot be accom
modated in such buildings. If only par
tial accommodation is to be provided,
sho maintains, the erection of such build
ings, or even the poseibiUty of their erec
tion, will greatly paralyze individual ef
fort. Much has been done by societies
and individuals during the last 80 years
to provide good houses for working peo
ple on a self supporting basiH. They are
ready to extend the work, hut not if they
must compete with buildings subsidized
by state aid. This is no imaginary dan
ger, for Miss Hill declares that ahe knows
this result to have already followed in
specified instances.—New York Post.

The memory of Miss Lncy M. Preen

in 1831, and a few years later succeeded
to the principalship of the school for

For 80 years thereafter "Miss Green's
school" was perhaps the most famous
private educational institution in this
country. It numbers anjong its gradu

Retiring from the school in 1869, Miss
Green spont the remainder of her life in

RESULT OF TWO SHOTS LEARNED
AFTER TWENTY-NINE YEARS.
An Incident In tbe Practice Work of a
Southern Field Day—Hew Colonel Rich
ardson Came to Know That He Bast Done
Souse Damage to Ills Enemies.
When the Washington artillery was
at Morgan City, there were many strik
ing incidents that sprang ont of the cer
emonies of dedicating Fort Star and of
practicing with the solid shot. The
whole day the war and ita memories
were kept before the people, bnt it was
not a reawakening in which the bloody
shirt had any play, bnt more of a
thoughtful retrospection, in whioh the
recalling of battles was not with bitter
ness, but with an impartial sadness.
Among the happenings of the day none
was more singular and noteworthy than
one which occurred to Colonel Richard
son, tho commander of the battalion.
It was during the time when the bat
teries were firing shell at the two tar
gets, which looked like tiny handker
chiefs on the water, they were so far
away. A good shot was fired, and the
spectators were applauding the excellent
marksmanship, and the colonel stepped
up to the gun to commend the gunner,
when without cause or without knowing
why the memory of a similar shot whioh
had been fired 29 years ago almost to the
very day flashed into his mind when he
had stepped up to a gunner and compli
mented him in much the same style.
It was when he was at Fort Malone at
the siege of Petersburg, which was
known as Fort "Damnation," when tbe
shot 29 years before had been fired, and
the Fourth of July was almost the anni
versary of the very day. Instead of
white targets for a mark it had been the
tops of two Sibley tents which peeped
over the ramparts of Fort "Hell," just
opposite Fort "Damnation.'* They were
the tents of the Federal officers. He knew
that from a deserter who had informed
him, also that the officers of the whole
command held a daily consultation there,
and that he could tell the time from the
fact that they hitched their horses around
Colonel Richardson was then a cap
tain in the Washington artillery, and he
conceived the idea of scoring a point on
the Federals by firing on the tents just
at the time of the daily consultation.
He selected the best gunner in his com
mand and told him what ho wanted him
to do, and that was to load and prepare
the guns for a special shot which he was
going to direct them to make the ensu
ing day. The young captain was sure
that he bad gunners he could depend up
on, and to make his triumph complete
he asked General Malone to be present
when the shots were to be fired.
It was noon the next day when the
horses of the Federal officers were seen
collected around the, two tents. The
gunners were told to train their guns
upon them and to be certain to make
their shots tell. Those two shots were
made the center of the interest of those
in Fort "Damnation" for that day, for
the word was passed around tbat the de
struction Of the officers' tents was to bo
After a deal of preliminary arrange
m<-uu ii.o two shots were nred, and the
tops of the two Sibley tents disappeaccd
like cardhouses in a gale of wind. The
success of the shots was the signal for
cheering on the part of the Confederates.
General Malone complimented the ac
curacy of the artillerymen, and it was
then that the captain stepped to the gun
ner and expressed his approbation in
much the same way that ho used to the
one that had made the good shot at Mor
gan City. But thero had always been a
tinge of dissatisfaction about that shot
at the Federal tents, and that was that
he had never ascertained whether any
one had been hurt in the tents, and for
the 29 intervening years that one thought
had pervaded the whole incident.
With these thoughts in bis mind Colo
nel Richardson turned away fiom the
gunner at Morgan City, and at that mo
ment one of Morgan City's prominent
citizens, Mr. Gray, stepped to the colo
nel's side and said:
"Isn't this Colonel Richardson?"
"Well, I have been wanting to meet
you fer many years, ever since I heard
you had been in Fort 'Damnation' at
the same time that I was in Fort 'Hell.'"
"Yes?' said the colonel, "and when
were you in Fort 'Hell?"'
"In July, 1804. In fact, just 29 years
ago today," answered Mr. Gray.
The colonel instantly thought of those
two Bhots and wondored if his curiosity
was to be satisfied. "Do you remember
a day while you were opposite me in
Fort 'Hell' when the tents of the officers
were taken down by two shots which
wero almost simultaneous?"
Tho stranger did not reply for a full
minute. A shadow seemed to fall over
him, his eyes grew dark, and he stepped
back and surveyed tho colonel from head
to foot. Then he broke out feelingly:
"D nyoui I shall never forget those
shots. They swept away the flower of
my corps. My first lieutenant was killed,
and the leg of my second lieutenant was
shotoff, and five others were killed. And
did you fire that shot?"
The deep feeling of the man was evi
dent, but a moment later he said, "Well,
colonel, you are now teaching your young
soldiers to serve the flag for which my
officers laid down their lives."—New
Too Far Off.
He had wandered about into dozens of
stores hopelessly trying to match a piece
of goods for his wife. At last he quit
and leaned up against a post with the
sample in his hand.
"What's the matter?" asked a passing
"Yes. I guess I'll have to go to heav
en," he replied, sticking the sample out
aimlessly toward the inquirer.
"What do you mean?"
"Well, they say matches are made in
heaven, and I guess they're right. I'll
swear they're not made anywhere around
here."—Detroit Free Press.
Those Wuh White Frocks.
"I don't think I fancy what you ladies

it did come from masculinity. They do.
