Working Girls Position in
By L. M. K. OnHo.
We. all have to work in some way, and
perhaps more than half of us have to
earn our ,own living, then why should
not the girl who works in the kitchen be
treated with the same respectrs a sewing
girl or a ..hool teacher? But they are
not indedl. I hate seen the sewing girl
' eted at the table and be treated as one
of the family. but had the help who wal
t-'t upon (and who by the 'way was far
superior in everything) dared to have set
at the same table she would have been
shown the door, and her future services
would have been dispensed with. Yet
where was the difference ? They were
both working girls. But one was a
dressmaker and the other only a second
Of course I know that some by their
better abilities and education can com
mnand higher wages than those who have
not these advantages and it is right that I
it should be so; but why beeanse one can
teach a class of country children she
is entitled to a better position in so
ciety than the one who can only cook a I
good dinner is past my understandlag,
arnd yet the health of the entire family
often depends more upon the eook than
anything else. I think this is ens of
the deepest roots of the present evil.
And while we learn to look upon one
kind of labor as being as respectable as
another, and upon a girl who works tn
the kitchen as worthy as her sister who
works in the store or workroom, I fear
theolid cry of "bad servants" and heart
stick bousekeepers will still continae.

Permit me to remark, Mrs. Cleveland,
that I don't like it. It strikes me as
rather too mueh of a good thing.

It iela relief to see a woman, be abe
young or old whose complexion is not ar
tiieial. Time was when the woman
whose face was powdered and rouged,
whose lips were painted and eyebrows
stencilled, was viewed with soelal sus
picion and mentally placed where abe
no doubt properly belonged. It is differ
ent. Parisian art certainly beemtite i
the face, but the artiiciality is deteeted
simply because it is too beautiful to be -
Snatural. It is argued that the dilpa
O tione of fashionable life, the round of
gayety, late hours, luxurious eating, ins
'dequate exereise and fresh air puma
turely destroys youth and freshe of
face, rendering recourse to seemaies s
1 eoary. No doubt this is trs and
more the pity and one can only eonjec
tore what manner of faces mat be hid
behind the mass seen on the pieasa at
the table d'hote and in the parlors. Sa
ratoga and Long Branch abound in these -
frescoed women and from a emrtain
standpoint they are a sight to see. It is
all in keeping however, with Vanity
Fair.-New York Mail
