On Tuesday delegates from other states
iiml different sections of Texas will meet in
loi t Worth to devise plans for a worthy
exhibit in all departments of the wonderful
ii iiirces of tliis state Among the mem
lu i - assembled there will be a number of
lad its and it devolves upon the women of
tin- city to eo to it that their reception is
ln irtv and worthy The committees have
Hppcaled to the ladies to assist iu the floral
8 -ration of the opera house and also to
u ho can entertain delegates to scud in
u ir names the numlier of their residence
tmu how many guests they will receive
This convention is an important one and
IV mora effect of a cordial reception of

Moving on methodically aud showing line
business tact It is true Miss Cousins as
created a little ripple that has
afforded some fun for parapraphcrs but as
men in their official capacities are not al
v i s cither dipnilied or right in their
efforts to establish their authority the
i ii U just conclusion in thL as it Is in many

leminine Mrs Palmer in this affair
1 i shown her usual dignity aud the work

The last few years have been marked by
cfloits to modify the hard condition of
x orkiug women Too often well meant
ors have been thwarted by the workers
themselves who from incompetency or a
x ant of harmonious concerted action have
frustrated well designed plans for their
emancipation A comparatively new in
dustry and one that has grown most rap
lii is typewriting It is calculated that
there are now in New York and Brooklyn
no less than 0000 typewriters So great a
number naturally begets sharp cometition
and low prices for this kind of labor This
ha led to an organization that has not so
much for its object the increase of wages as
the design to raise the standard of work
raid to provide employment in good places
fir those who are competent The ques
tion of competency will bo decided by a
ionl of directors and the name of the
ssf ul applicant registered In this xvay
I l sous wishing to secure good service can
obtain skilled typewriters and tho rate of
v ages will be justly fixed It is a matter to
be deplored that neither the common school
nor the business college turn out girls who
can spell correctly puntcuato accurately
crhavemore than a vague idea of the proper
uses of a capital letter while the operator
herself knows little of English save as
she is spoke Women typewrit
ers like women typo setters should
be paid the same as men and
an organization that fixes a common stand
ard of excellence in work is tho agent to
fix a common standard in the amount of pay
for that work If women are striving for
equality in one part of the labor field they
must indicate their claim by showing an
equality in other parts This is not hard
ship but simple justice xvomen can
and ought to bo as efficient stenographers

CHAT OX r ASH IONS
As the years go on there is shown an in
creasing love of display and luxury It is a
part of the price a eople pay for progress
made in civilization and refinement As it
would be most natural to exjieet this ten
dency is more marked in the feminine por
tion of each community Much of tho so
called simplicity of to day is art in its
higher form costing asj does the small pict
ure by Messcnier infinitely more than the
work of the village artist who measures his
canvas by feet and his art attainment by
the gaudiness of his coloring Simplicity
as it appears in a fashionable ladys cos
tuming costs a pretty penny but as fash
ionable women usually have the pretty
pennies it is well that their fancy turns to
sweet smplic ity The many accessories of
the toiiet that are essential to a good ap
pearance are in the main artistic and show
an advance in that daintiness which be
longs with tho true lady There are some
traces of the barbaric in the lavish use of
tinsel and mock jewels and a gleam of sav
agery in the flashing reds and yellows that
are xvorn Still as the summer advances
filmy lace and delicate tinted soft silks
lawns and organdies will supersede these
A paragraph has lately been
going the rounds in which it is alleged that
the Princess of Wales has not changed the
fashion of her bonnet in ten years Now as
the princess has shown some extremely
woman like qualities no one will readily
believe that she clings to one fashion in
hats She may have adopted a style that
she deems becoming but there have been
modifications that a man might fail to dis
cern Women have fads and fancies but
cl in ring to an old bonnet is not ono of them
The bonnet known as Princess is becom
ing to all oval faces but what shall bo said
of this season hat fiat and unmanageable it
stays no where has all manner of indenta
tions and rears its flower or ribbon bedeck
ing at alarming height both rear and front
in order to give tho desired height which
the plateau lacks A very tasteful model
of this shape is of open fancy straw lined
xvith pinl crepe a wreath of green violet
leaves trim the sides there is a full upright
bow of black velvet in front and a duster
of long stemmed Parma violets at the back
The shop windows of some of the princi
pal merchants have shown during the past
week some very exquisite white goods and
other wash material and the verdict of all
the ladies xvho linger about the exhibits is
that they are perfectly lovely Tlio
question of how to make these whito
dresses ginghams and lawns is answered
by a popular modiste xvho says to make
them just as you do your summer silks In
truth there is no reason xvhy tho one should
not be as pretty as the other Aot many
evenings ago there were txvo ladies at the
same entertainment both in pink One in
a pink silk made xvith three narrow rullles
at the foot xvith a bodice made xvith coat
effect xvith a cascade of soft lace forming
the vest and encircling the throat The
other dress xvas of fine pink gingham and
was made almost exactly the same as the
silk Nine out of every ten persons xvould
have pronounced it the prettier of the two
for a dainty corsage bouquet of ferns and
La France roses was xvorn with graceful
effect
A simple fashion for an India silk and
consequently pretty for a lipured lawn is
to have a bodice xvith a short pointed front
and a basque back The front has a yoke
of white embroidery to which the silk is
shirred in a heading the fullness brought
in pleats to a point at the xvaist The
sleeves are full aud drooping xvith deep
close cuffs of embroidery and a ruffle of em
broidery around the armhole a bow of rib
bon on the shoulder bows at the elbow aud
the yoke and at the belted point of the
xvaist The skirt three and one third yards
wide hangs in festoon folds in the front
the remaining fullness being well brought
to the back The back of the basque has
pleal s laid from the neck to the point of the
xvaist line and then the fullness left loose
to ruffle over the skirt tho yoke of embroid
ery extending only across the front or the
bodice
The extreme convenience of the jacket is
sutlicicnt excuse for frequent allusion to
pretty fashions in makinp In one of the
most tasteful models the material is polka
dotted India silk the fullness in front is
brought into a space of six inches just
above the bust the point ft a V neck meet
ing it there is a simulated bosom of xvhite
China silk xvith a standing collnr of black
velvet aud a turned back square ended col
lar that broadens from the neck to the line
of fullness and covers the space into which
the silk is pleated The bishop sleeves
stand high on the shoulders and have small
pointed cuffs of velvet The fullness at the
xvaist is confined by a Cleopatra belt
brought to a point in front the skirt ex
tending about eight inches over the hips
The exodus of many ladies xvill soon be
gin as lune is the month of tourists and
those xxho make long journeys and are
necessarily aboard a sleeper for txvo or
three consecutive nights will find a gown of
black xvash silk for night xx ear a comfort
and a blessing They look well do not
xvrinkle and the uninitiated cannot readily
tell xvhether the garment is meant for a
robe do nuit or a tea goxvn so numerous
are its ruffles and frills of lace and xvith all
so dainty

given a description of a pretty little slip
for the baby girl The little garment is of

are a foil ruffle of the lace and tie yoke is

ing the fullness of the skirt is held at the
yoke by tiny pleats each one fastened by
dainty feather stitching The dress is sim

beauty is due in a large measure to the cx
qusite taste and nicety of needlework that
make it tie daintiest of baby garments
NOTES
Two big frills of chiffon are worn with
China silk gowns
Sleeveless jackets of veh etare xvorn over
blouse xvaists of China silk
Very narrow baby blue ribbons are run
through the lace meshes of guimpes
Black lace capes which reach to the knees
are among the novelties of the season
Small pearl buttons are still used to orna
ment the first short gingham dresses
White cloth sailor caps for boys have
large anchors in gold or broxvn braid on
crown
Cornflower blue is becoming- a popular
color -or house dresses but it requires a
pretty xvoman to xvear it
Traveling ulsters of mohair pongee and
brilllantiue have quite put out of counte
nance the old fashioned linen duster
A new idea for a brides trousseau is to
have the underlinen ornamented with a
monogram in a fac simile of her own haud
writing
A baby girl fashion is the dainty little
frock ol light blue silk smocked and em
broidered in gold with a folded band about
the waist and a little reticule hangingby the
side
The medici collar has become a part of
every outside garment It does not seem
quite appropriate for summer but fashion
dictates xvithout regard to comfort some
times
Flounces placed at the foot of a skirt
should be narrow in front ind xvide at tho
backin order not to detract from the height
of the wearer Uufiled pipings are a new
form of decoration effectixe in silk
Little girls are kept in Kato Grecnaway
gowns as long as possible The tine ging
hams or rather zephyrs used for this pur
pose are shorter now iu new shades of por
celain blue and rose pink xvith alternating
stripes of xvhite
Gray combined xvith cream xvhite is still
much favored A stylish costume in this
fashion is made xvith half vest girdle and
broad baud arotnid tho gray skirt of cream
xxhite cloth xvith xery elegant borderinp iu
applique of gold aud silver galloon dotted
with steel nailheads
White lawns are delightful to look upon
with the full waist shirred on cords to
represent a x oke and large rolling collar
aud culls of embroidery Such waists
should be strengthened xvith a facing of the
same material around the arm size and are
cut sufficiently long to tuck under the skirt
Black mulls and fiuo organdies have in
sertions and trimmings of lace xvith col
ored x elvet ribbon Tho figured black
goods are trimmed with black velvet and
colored plastrons of crepe or silk These
gowns are lined xvith taffeta surah or
sateen and the skirts and bodices are made
x ery full
Among other indispensable articles to be
selected for summer are guimpes to be xvorn
xvith the low neck dresses Some of these
are so dainty aud tine they cost quite as
much as the dress itself The prettiest
guimpes this season hax o round yokes
composed of narrow insertion of Valenci
ennes held together xvith narrow headings
Plaid ginghams are still cut bias but are
Imo wn not to wash xvell The ireneral plan
for a girl s tringham dress is to have- a full
round surplice or yoke xvaist A pointed
yoke of embroidery is seen on many of the
store gowns cuffs and collars are also of
tho same Some of these skirts are made
four yards xvide xvith a six inch hem and
sexeral rows of gathers at waist In sec
tion baud aud belts also bows of xclvet rib
bon are found as trimmings
IIOUSEIIOIiIJ
Housekeeping deserves to be called an
art and Jeannie Deanes sounded the key
note in her answer to Capt Duncan Knock
The reader of Heart o Midlothian xvill
remember her response to his remark that
the fairies must help her for the house xvas
always clean iu xvhich she modestly said
Much might be done by timing ones
turn The secret certainly lies in perfect
system the tuning ones turn arranging
the routine xvorl so that days and times in
each xveek are devoted to the certain
things thus escaping that confusion best
expressed by tho old time word higgeldy
piggeldy The perfect housekeeper be
gins with herself she learns to conceal
effort and to shun spasmodic action she is
never uncomfortably nice but to enter her
house is to feel the rest fulness that comes
only by dwelling in a well ordered home
Tho xvoman xvho is mistress of herself man
ages her servants with ease even an indif
ferent servant can be made more useful
xvhen she knows the routine of the xvork
and that she is not to be called off for unim
portant jobs or for trivial errands It is
also true that xvhen a servant in the begin
ning thoroughly understands her duties
and is made to comprehend that
system is the rule she x ill all the more
readily accept duties that may bo disagree
able xvhen these come in the regular order
than if they were thrust upon her unex
pectedly or at inconvenient times Work
laid doxvn is not easily picked up if no
other harm is done the interest is destroyed
aud the ambition to accomplish it checked
A systematic housekeeper xvill provide for
the comfort of those in her employ this
xvill be a part of her system and she will
regulate as far as is jiossible their times of
reereatiou By doing this she will show to
her servants that she is a gentle woman
and there xvill be no occasion for those airs
of arrogance xvhich mark the parvenu aud
not the well bred xvoman
Again in a household that moves
methodically there xvill seldom if ever
arise those uufortunato contretemps xvhich
annoy a husband and often the unexpected
guest Thy rhythm of the xvell organized
home presided ever by the sxveet dignity of
the adept in housekeeping art will flow
on undisturbed as if indeed the good fairies
were in league xvith the charming mistress
and no discordant measure could mar its
loving harmony

alone is to place the feet a short distance
apart and without moving the legs to bend
the body to the left right forward and
baekxvard keeping the head entirely erect
Core should bo taken iu bending forward
to have the eyes dhected toward the ceil
ing so that the best results may bo gained
from the exercise also in bending baek
xvard the chest should be lifted and the
head should lie thrown back to form an
arch to obviate the making of the bend in
the small of tho back xvhich is both pain
ful and dangerous Head flexions increase
the plumpness about the neck Shoulder
blade flexions increase the muscles of the
arm kneo flexions are especially good ex
ercises for acquiring grace in sitting or
rising One cf these consists of rising on
the toes and bending the knees allowing
the body to fall perpendicular while the
hands aro placed on the hips are out
stretched or extended aloft Brooklyn

A New York working girl writes If the
rich church and society ladies of this and
other large cities really desire to better tho
condition of the xvorking girl they can do so
without going to the expense of organizing
and maintaining clubs societies and
leagues Let thera talk to the girls at
church introduce them to people help them
to get situations xvhen they are idle extend
small loans to them give them refer
ences and letters of introduction Let them
invite the xvorking girl to their
church sociables church teas and
literary societies Let them open their
dining rooms occasionally and give the xv
p a supper and xvhen she calls on her di
rect the servant to admit her into the par
lor She xvont run off xvith the furniture
or portieres Besides its such bad form to
leave a friend standing in the vestibule
These are a few of the direct benefits that
might accrue from real interest in the xv g
If the real truth were knoxvn it is to these
would be reformers politically industri
ally socially aud morally that some of tho
most heartfelt and unjust cruellies suffered
by the w g are due This is my experi
ence others may havo a different one
