'Qethat is very suitable for the time
of year is formed by a combination of
plain cashmere and plaited zephyr
woolen material. The latter composes
the narrow vest which opens upon a
V-shaped plaited linen chemisetta.
The chemisette is of course uccompa
hied by a linen collar, and this is sur
rounded by a "lay-down" collar of vel
vet. Cuffs of the latter material, if
gauntlet shape, reach nearly to the
elbow, and are ornamented with a row
of small round wooden buttons which
give them the appearance of being
fastened to the arms. Above these
cuffs, the sleeves, which, as well
as the body portion of the basque, are
of cashmere, are very loose, and plait
ed in the fashionable style. The
drapery consists of - a tablier in front
which is drawn up to both hips, with a
triangular velvet revers upon the left
side; at the back the draperies are in
straight wide folds, bouffant above
the hips. These are all of cashmere.
Beneath, a plain skirt, with a narrow
foot plaiting of the plaided material,
appears. 'I his costume, for the street,
or any of the fashionable watering
places, is just the thing.
The satines and foulards, which

not much in favor at present, but

cheap as to be common, are neverthe
less widely worn. A plain seersucker

Black stockings, which have been,

ladies, are now giving way in favor of

Where striped stockings are worn the
stripes are of the variety termed "hair

Basque mantelets, fitting close to the'

where capes are worn, are almost the

wraps are seen, falling from the shoul

- Women Wa.,e-Earners.
As superintendent for twelve years of thb
*Woman's Branch of the New York City
Mission," writes Anna R. Brown, it has.
been my lot to see a large number of the
. rer classes of the women wage-earners.
eepeople, as we all know, are paid
very low prices, and i think that they would
do much better if it were possible for them
to deal with first hands instead of the mid
dlemen who now have contracts for work.
Among the att endants at my winter isew
ing-class of three hundred was a woman
for whom I had bought a sewing-'c.chine,.
ad who hoped to pay for it hers If; but'
-how could she when all that she received
for the little girls' dresses which she so
antefully made was seven een cents?
Another woman, with live children and a
husband in consumption, was trying to
suppert her family by making gentlemen's
undergarments at twenty-six cents a dozen.
Pantaloon-makers get from seven to
tirteen cents a pair for finishing. Fifty
Cents a dozen is paid for overalls, includ
ing the making of the button-holes; and
men's shirts, jumpers, and articles of that,
sort are paid for very poorly. There are
plenty of workingwomen who cannot make'
over twenty-five cents a day, and I do not
know that they are worth more.
If a woman can make four dollars or five
dalars a week she considers herself very
fcirtuate. Sometimes this money supple=
ments the husband's income; sometimes
the woman is the sole support.
Societies, either independent or connect
ed with different churches, give out con-1
siderable sewing during the winter, but of
course they cannot supply work to all who
What the poor really need is to take ad
vantage of the opportutnitieb now afforded
them to get an industrial education, so that
they can go to work intelligently. This
opportunity they are too short-sighted to
take advantage of, preferring the three
dollars a week that they may be earning to
"losing time," as they call it. in gining
this knowledge. They 'nust be educated.
It is very slow work, but I am sure that It
will tell in the end. I think that some of
the higher branches '?honld be taken out of
the school curriculum, and that giri
should be taught to cook. The cooking
schools already eastbiished by philan
thropic effort, as well as those connected
with some of our chapels, are doing a great
deal of good.
What the woman wage-earner of to-day
needs more than anything else is to learn
how to do things well.
There is a host of incompetent wome~i
workers, but, as Daniel \'ebstet said,
"there is always room at the top." Among
three hundred women whom I once met
about one-half were washerwomen. Not
one of these was competent to do first-class
laundry work; some said they could wash
shirts, but they could not iron them in
the best style.
I really do not think that it was Intended
by Providence that women should be wage
earners, and when we come to a right con
dition of society very few of them will
work for wages. But if men drink up their
wages and do not support their families,
women will have to work. Some say that
the women wage-earners should be organ
ized. This might be well if they were
under wise leadership.
It must be remembered that the class o'f
workers of whom I have spoken is com
posed largely of the foreign and the poorer
element. It takes a long time to educate
such people into thrifty and business-like
habits, but gradually they will learn, and
as they learn so will their happiness and

Learn from, this otoi* iri the first place,
that the wtji-d is conipefled to honor Christian

ll the affairs of that grea.t house were com

You cannot despise a son or a daughter of

his disciples, all that there is good and noble

honest to take the ignominious failures in

Furthermore, we learn from this story of
Ioseph that the result of persecution is eleva

Egyptian bondage by his malicious brothers
mnd his false imprisonment. Joseph would
never have become Prime Minister. Every
body accepts the promise : " Blessed

Furl hermore; we learn from this story the
propriety of laying up for the future. Dur

the famine, and when it c-nie he bad a
crowded storehouse. The life of most men in
a worldly respect is divided into years of
pleiity and famine. It is seldom that any
man passes through life without at leastseven
'years of plehnty. Driniiethese seven prosperous

You hardly know wxhere all the money conies
from, it com:-'s so fast. Every bargain you
make seems to turn into gold. You contract
few had debts. You are astounded with
large dividends. You invest moore and more
capital. You wonder how men can be
content with a small business, gather
ing in only a hundred dollars where
you reap your thousands. These are the
seven years of plenty. Now, Joseph, is the
time to prepare for famine: for to almost
every man there do come seven years of
famine. You will be sick: you will be
unfoitunate: you will be defrauded:
you wuiil be disapipointed; you will be
old, aucl if you have no storehouse
upon whichl to fall back you may be famine
struck. We have no admiration for this
