CHORIS GIRL TELLS THE GLOBE
OF GLAMOR OF STAGE
SHE LIKES THE EXCITEMENt

From Somnolent Phil
"Its my first season," said the Chorus
Girl. "1 think the stage is perfectly
She was such a pretty Chorus Girl—the
cne the editor of The Globe's wom
an's page interviewed yesterday—that if
the had exclaimed over her own loveli
ness instead of the beauty of the barren
stage, one must of necessity have for
given her. It is true her hair was
ilondined and she showed a naive inap
j.reciation of familiar grammatical rules,
but the former made a halo about a face;
that had retained all its childlike con
tour, and the latter—well, the latter was
forgotten when one looked at the big
tleepy gray eyes that flashed now and
then from under their long lashes. The
setting only spoiled the picture that this
tall, slim young chorus girl made. The
room was small and cheerless. An un
finished breakfast unattractively arrang
ed on a big black tray occupied one of
the two chairs in the room. The visitor
occupied the other and the Chorus Girl
perched herself on the trunk.
"What do 1 like about it?" she repeated
dreamily. •Why," candidly, "I think it's
the excitement. You see we're always
going some place and there is always
something to see or do. The girls in. the
company are awfully nice, too. It seems
like one big family.
"My home is in Philadelphia," con
tinued the Chorus Girl confidentially.
"Perhaps you've heard," innocently,
"that Philadelphia is slow?' The visitor
"Yes, it's awfully slow," and the Cho
rus Girl sighed retrospectively. "And,
anyhow, I always wanted to go on the
Btage. Of course, I had had a little ex
perience in private theatricals and I
danced and sang a little. When the com
pany began to rehearse in Philadelphia
I went to the manager and asked him
for a position. He gave me one at once.
"It was difficult at first. Everything
was strange. So many girls were crowd
ed into the dressing rooms and there was
the make-up. Nobody tells you anything
about that. You have to use your own
judgment and ask the other girls about
the results. You get to be a good judge
yourself in a very short time and you find
out what kind^ of rouge is best for your
face. Most of the girls use grease paint,
but I never do. Before I make-up, how
ever, I rub cold cream on my face and
then I apply cosmetics. Then, when I
•want to remove the paint after the per
formance 1 rub more cold cream on and
that takes most of the paint off. In that
way. you sei\ I protect my skin.
"Are chcrus girls ambitious? Yes, 1
tlink most of them are. You see,"
naively, "there are always some girls in
the chorus you don't like and naturally
you want to get ahead of them. That
makes you do your best.
"No, I don't find it hsrd work, and I
really like one night stards. Yes, I know,
most girls don't, but I truly do. You see.
if you don't like a town very well you
just have to remember that you are
there only for that one night and you
can look forward to the new town that
'•the company is to visit.
"What do I like best about my work?
Why, I like the dancing and the "different
colored lights and the music and the ap
plause. Suppers and things?" The CHo
rus girl threw back her head and laugh
ed. "You read about these in the pa
pers," she said, demurely. "We do not
hear so much about them on the stage.'"

who do their own sewing, and one aoes

at least her own shirt waists.
White is to bemused more than ever this
year, and it has many good qualities. It

there is no trouble with fading, as there
often is with the best colored goods,
which will change color in the sun when
they will withstand even a careless wash

The frosting of this cake is the.only
part which is dark, as the cake is almost
pure white. For the cake beat the whites
of ten medium sized eggs until so stiff
and dry that you can turn the bowl over
and they will not drop out. Then add
gradually three-quarters cup of fine
granulated sugar, beating across the
bowl and not stirring. Add one teaspoon
of flavoring, and one-third cup of flour,
four level tablespoons of cornstarch, one
level teaspoon of cream tartar and a
few grains of salt sifted together three
times. Do not beat after the ingredi
ents are well mixed, as the air cells of
the beaten egg and the air in the lightly
sifted flour will be liberated by much
stirring, and the lightness of the cake

indulge in the summer is an extra al

work done at home the cost of fresh
frocks and gowns is comparatively liale.
To toegin with, the thinnest goods, which
to many people are the least attractive,
there are the embroidered Swisses for
evening and many semi-dress occasions.
There is nothing prettier in effect than
a frock of one of these sheer muslins,
and there is nothing to be found this sea
son in which there is more variety.
There are, in the tirst place, the dots.
There are tiny dots no bigger than a
pinhead, set closely together, and there
are other fine dotted muslins with the
dots a trifle larger and set a little fur
ther apart and intersected at intervals
by eight-inch dots. Still other patterns
having only one-size dots show these
half the size of the larger ones. The
dotten muslins will cost 60 cents a yard,
and nothing more serviceable can be
found. The dot is a pattern of eternal
youth, and it never becomes conspicu
After the dots come all sorts of pat
terns in the Swisses, and all sorts of
prices ranging up to $1.50. For that price
one can find a pattern of stripes of equal
width, one of the plain and fine muslin,
and the other a lace stripe with an em
broidered pattern upon it. Very pretty

FOR HEALTH AND BEAUTY.
If you wish to clear your skin and get
rid of the disfiguring spots on forehead
or chin, you must make up your mind" to
undertake a. severe regime, both in diet
and personal care. The sallowness so
noticeable on many a young face is prob
ably a result of insufficient circulation
and of improper digestive work. The
blotches come indirectly from the same 1
cause or from some other trouble which
appertains to functional health.
Your dislike to water is natural to
your condition, but you can never im
prove until you have overcome it. Bath
ing is the best, in fact, it is the only
way of improving the circulation, and it
Bake In a tube pan for at least forty
five minutes, and possibly ten minutes
more will be needed for the cake must
shrink from the pan before it is taken
cut. Like a meringue or sponge cake
this cake must have a slow oven.
For the frosting break up two squares
of chocolate and melt over hot water,
add a level teaspoon of butter and three
tablespoons of hot water. It will become
a thick mass and you will think that
you have spoiled it, but stir in gradually
one-half cup of powdered sugar and per
haps a level tablespoon more, and it will
spread smoothly over the cake; add fla
voring. Garnish this cake with whipped
cream when served.

must be constant. At night take a warm
bath, rather a hot one, using a flesh
brush of a loofa vigorously and tubbing
yourself into a glow afterwards with a
coarse Turkish towel. If you can stand
a cold plunge in the morning—that is,
if your heart is entirely strong and ac
tive—never omit it, cays the Pittsburg
Dispatch. In two weeks with deep
breathing practiced all the time, an 3
especially when you are in the open air,
you will notice an improvement. It re
quires a good deal of moral courage, and
you will find yourself at times very
loath to take these energetic measures,
but they are necessary,, and without
them you can hope for no improvement
In your diet you must eat green vege
tables, lettuce, watercress, celery and
radishes, one of these at least once every
day. and for other food take cooked veg
etables, dressed simply with a little but
ter and cream, boiled rice and rice soups
made with peas, beans or one of the cere
als. Do not eat meat oftener than three
times a week and let it be rare beefsteak
broiled simply, or roast beef or lamb.
Do not touch pork or veal in any form.
Eat fruit at every meal, and eat at least
two apples each day. preferably just be
fore going to bed.
Celery an ii rat in.
After selecting all the best of the in-
ner bleached stalks for salad, cut the
remainder of the bunch into half-inch
bits, first scraping off any spots or
stringy portions. Cover with boiling wa
ter and let it cook until tender; If you
have about one pint of the celeuy let the
water boil away to about one-half- cup.
Drain off this water and add to it one-half
cup of cream and heat again. Melt one
rounded tablespoon of butter, add one
rounded tablespoon of flour, and when
well mixed add gradually the hot liquid.
Stir as it thickens and add salt and pep
per. Turn the cooked celery into a bak
ing dish and sprinkle over it from one
fourth to one-half cup of grated cheese.
Pour the sauce over the whole and cover
the top with one-half cup of fine cracker
crufnbs moistened with melted butter.
Bake in a hot oven until the crumbs are
brown. Surround the dish with a paper
ruffle and garnish with a tuft of the yel
low celery leaves. The cheese may be
omitted and the celery and sauce may
be turned into the shell of an Edam or
pineapple cheese, covered with the but
tered crumbs and baked until the crumbs
are browned. The cheese shells will
give the celery sufficient flavor.
WOMAN'S GOLF VEST.
A snug-fitting vest that can be worn
bereath the wrap, when the weather de
mands, is a recognized necessity in this
uncertain climate. Not golf players alone,
but women of all pursuits find it essen

This admirable garment includes
many desirable features and is suited
to all fancy yestings, the sleeves being
made of silk in a harmonizing tone The
vesting provides warmth for the body

Oct. 21, 1900.
My Dearest Louise—l can't date this
"on the road to Mandelay," for the ther
mometer outside of our camp door de
clares it 42 degrees, so I rather feel 1 am
en route to the north pole, but as this is
just to tell you a little of our jolly hunt
ing trip and not a weather report, I shall
rot waste time telling you how cold it is.
You know our party, consisting of
Brother Tom and his wife, our cousins,
Harry and Lewis Thompson, and my
self, left Balto Oct. 15 for Boston, from
there to Portland, and then a bee line
for this camp in the heart of the woods.
When 1 see you 1 will tell you all of
the comforts and discomforts of this sort
of living; what characters our guides are,
and all that; but just now I have one
piece of news that overshadows all else.
I have shot a deer! Yes, truly, and I can
show you my guide's affidavit if my word
does not convince you.
I can just feel my head s welling every
time 1 think of it, and you will please
save your pennies for those gloves you
wagered that 1 would never see a deer
hoof in Maine.
I wish 1 coukl tell you of the charms
of this life. We leave camp early in 'fhe
rrorning, each with his own guide, and
though sometimes you do get just a little
tired, after you have tramped five or six
hours without seeing a noof mark, still
you enjoy the magnificent woods etc
and when your keen-eyed guide does spy
signs of game you forgejt all the aching
muscles and follow on with a light heart
But I must not let my enthusiasm run
away with me, for it's not likely you axe
as interested in deer talk as I am just
But I have had a funny little experi
ence that you may laugh over with me.
Do you remember when we came home
from Washington in September, just as
we left the train at the Union station we
saw Charlie English waving good-bye to
such a handsome man who was just
leaving him? And Charlie came to us
lamenting that we had been out of town
while he was entertaining a most charm-
Ing New Yorker. Well, my dear, we
have seen the N. Y. charmer up here, and 1
he has lost none of his good looks on the
We stopped over night at a small coun
try inn just before getting into our
camp, and as we sat around the open
fire in the sitting room, who should
tramp through into his own room ad
joining the sitting room, but the un
known New Yorker.
In a little while the rest of gthe party
left the room to look after traps, guides,
etc., and you know how I whistle to
keep my spirits up when alone! Quite
unconscicuftly I began whistling "Come

"Skilled Labor." Mrs. James, together

of a school of domestic science and her
address last night was on the proposed

with much less expense if gone about in
a scientific way. Mrs. E. L«. Mann, of

Dear Louise—Here we are transplanted
from the heart of the wilderness to the
perfection of luxury. You know what
this magn'ticent hotel is, so I won't waste
paper in telling you of its attractions.
