FOR THE FAIR SEX
WOMEN ARE DOMESTIC
IT IS DENIED THAT WOMEN ARE
NO LONGER HOME LOVERS
Men Preach One Thing and Practice
Another —The New Woman Is an
Improvement Over the Old, and Men
Like Her Better.
Some man says somewhere that
Women are not as domestic as they
used to be. And he asks, why aren't
they? He becomes very cross and dis
agreeable . in what he says, and we
must immediately argue with that man.
Suppose women aren't as domestic as
they used to be; there is no particular
reason why they should be. They are
domestic enough. This man proceeds
to blow up the entire sex because a few
■women take to dogs instead of babies.
That man thinks he is very smart; we
think he is exceedingly stupid.
Women have advanced; they are still
domestic, but they have grown out and
somewhat beyond sitting at home? with
cotton wool in their ears, never going
1 out. and believing: everything their
husbands tell them.
There is not the slightest reason why
a woman should not have a family, and
yet look well and be Intellectual. And
■women have learned how, that is all.
To be domestic no longer means to look
like a fright, and have no interest out-
Bide of baby food and cleaning house.
Our grandmothers were admirable
women and suited to their times; but
what man wishes his wife to go back
—for it is a going back that time?
Let the man who dares say that women
have not improved. And let the very
man whom we are trying to down, go
to a reception or gathering of men
and women anywhere, and by whose
side do we find him? By that of the
\ woman whose soul is consumed in
thought about her pillow shams? Not
by— good deal. Beside the intellec
tual woman who can talk and who has
read and who answers back.
Women are not deteriorating: they
are simjily developing and finding
themselves. Men preach one thing but
they practice another. They talk loud
ly about domesticity and babies, and
why women don't do this and do that,
and then they go to work and give the
lie to their speech by picking out the
very women who stand for what they
howl about. Oh, these men are very,
very funny! (Here's where Marie will
K<'t letters from Willie, and John and
Henry, remonstrating with her and
asking how she dares write such in
cendiary stuff and put it in print.)
P.ut this man who has said silly
things about women has been investi
gated and we find that his wife is the
president of the Amalgamated Sisters
of Peace and secretary to the Society
for the Suppression of Husbands, and
treasurer for the United Order of An
cient Dames. m Well, you see, she went
out of town'and husband thought it
. -was about time to roar, and not liking
i 'for very good reasons of his own) to
blame any particular woman, he put it
on the sex in general—and now he feels
better. But just wait until wifie comes
I home from the convention! We have
no more to say: we are perfectly sure
she will attend to him.

SCHUNEMAN & EVANS' MILLIN-
The millinery department at Schune
man & Evans was a bower of beauty
yesterday afternoon when Marie went
to look at the new hats. And they were
certainly worth looking at; every con
ceivable shape and color to choose
from and such a bewildering lot of
pretty hats that the women find it hard
to choose. In fact, this year it is more
the fashion than ever to have a hat for
each costume, and it is hardly neces
sary to have the hat made up, because
of the great variety of shades that are
used on the ready-made hats.
In shapes Schuiieman & Evans are
making a specialty of large hats; the
small ones are in the turban shapes,
and the most popular of types is the
gunboat turban, which fits the head
better than the old close turban. In
deed, it is just this matter of fitting
the head that makes the hats this year
so fetching; each woman who goes to
buy a hat does not take one she likes
unless the shape is suited to the shape
of her face and head. Millinery in this
is becoming more artistic than for
Th t women who went to Sehuneman
THE ST. PAUL GLOBS, THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 24. 1903.
& Evans' yesterday were particularly
impressed by the display of large black
hats; some of them were simply stun
ning. Several of these have the wide
torpedo crowns and are made of black
shirred velvet, with sweeping ostrich
Qlome*. The broad ostrich pompons
in black and white are much worn and
there are some beautiful ones on a
white hat in this display which are
worthy of more than passing comment.
The hat is a large one with a rolling
brim and is entirely covered with
hand-plaited white chiffon. On one
side are these very beautiful pompons.
Another imported hat ia of royal pur
ple velvet put on smoothly over a tor
pedo crown and a very large poke brim.
It is trimmed profusely with French
pink roses, and inside, near the face; is
a knot of French blue ribbon. The
French poke hats are very pronounced
and very becoming to certain types of
face; they are now made of hand
plaited silk for winter, as well as of
chiffon, and are worn for dress. There
are several very beautiful Virot models
here and others from the best Paris
houses, as well as examples of the mil
linery art of Mme. Hunt, Joseph Llcb
enstera, of New York. The two shapes
of large hats which will be most worn
and of which Schuneman & Evans have
some fine examples, are the Gainsbor
ough and French poke.
Some very fine fur hats are shown
here also. These are not really for
common wear, and the woman who has
only one or two hats will not want one.
But the woman who is able to have a

hat for each toilette will find the fur
hat very chic for the intensely cold
days, with collar and muff to match.
There are some beautiful hats here in
chinchilla, mink and astrakan, but it
takes a very pretty woman to wear
French foliage is one of the newest
things, and one very beautiful turban
is of red velvet of the peculiarly bril
liant shade of geranium, while the
brim is encircled with the velvet ge
ranium contrasted with green velvet
leaves. This is one of the best street
hats in this fine collection.
Another exquisite hat is of black
velvet; it Is a French poke with wide
brim, and the whole of the under brim
is covered with hand-plaited chiffon of
the palest blue. This would be Just the
proper thing for the dress hat of some
lovely blonde debutante.
Yet another is in the pale castor
shades, which are among the very lat
est, with hand-made passamenterie;
yet another of grays, shaded from the
palest to the deepest.
The wise woman will not fall to go to
the Sehuneman & Evans' opening and
feast her eyes on the beautiful colors
and the charming shapes that are to
grace feminine heads this winter.
ABOUT PEOPLE ANDTHINGS
On one of the rainy days this week
Mrs. Roosevelt was going from shop
to shop in New York. By the time she
had flnishsd, at 2 o'clock, her hat was
awry and her brown veil drenched.
True, she and a friend, Mrs. Richard
son, had gone about in a cab, but that
was no protection on so stormy a day.
Later Mrs. Roosevelt and Mrs. Rich
ardson were in Sherry's. It Is said the
president's wife purchased one of the
prize coats in a Twenty-third street
shop. For weeks this coat had been in
a case on exhibition. It is long and
of white corded silk. The lapel Is
faced w lthpoint lace and a song stole
of lace, appliqued on net, falls down
the front. The coat is finished with

woman impressed the countess, as she
has impressed everybody she has met
since she came here from Rochester.
Diversions in the Woodruff camp are
many. Canoeing ori §t. Regis lake is
pleasant on a calm day, and Mrs.
Woodruff is becoming friendly with
Mrs. Whitelaw Reid and several other
women of fashion who are the main
stays of St. Regis. Mrs. Woodruff ar
ranged an illuminated fleet the other
night on the lake. The rowboats.
launches and catboats were decked
with lanterns and every available
strummer of mandolin or guitar was
corralled. But the clever woman's
plans were spoiled in part by three
days of rain.
"It is almost impossible to tell the
difference between Americans ir. good
society and Englishmen," said a New
port woman, "because both men and
women imitate the accent of London.
Everybody one meets here speaks
•quite British.' and the girls, especially
the Misses Mills, would be taken for
English folks, judging from their ac
cents. Miss Van Alen also practices
the British manner, and I really can
think of no girl, except Miss Schenck,
who does not use the English accent."
"One evening recently a man was
presented to me," continued the ma
tron. "He wore a monocle," and I \vhb
sure he was a Londoner. Finally I
said, 'Your accent 1c quite Devon I
should say. I knew a man from Devon
shire who spoke precisely as you do.'
The man "hawHawea" in truly British
fashion and replied, 'Rawther eweet of
you, you know. lain from New Yawk."
Somehow I felt as:tf I would like to hit
him. Later I heard that man passed
six months a year in! London with the
sole purpose of acquiring the accent."
Everything revolved about Mrs.
Cornwallis West when she visited the
European spas this month, which
proves that the powers of fascination
of some women do not diminish. Mrs.
West holds to her .youthfulnesa with
a tenacious grip. She still seems to be
a woman of thirty-five, although she
is many years older' than that. She
goes about with her young husband,
and the devotion of fhis pair never has
waned. Mrs. West was in Aix, where
she ruled the gay little set. She was
often in company of George of Greece.
Although usually indifferent to Ameri
cans, she was polite in Aix and helped
Mrs. H. Vincent G. Higgins. of New
York, to attain the height of enter
taining royalty. Mrs. Higgins was for
merly Miss Mary Parsons. Then she
was Mrs. Breese. Her husband is a
brother of Mrs. H. Mortimer Brooks.
Mrs. West's taste In gowns is as ex
cellent as when she was Miss Jerome,
of New York. One evening In the
Grand Hotel d;Aix she amazed the
guests by appearing in a frock of
hand-painted chiffon that defied pres
ent-day models. It. suggested a Wat
tea v shepherdess. It has paniers of the
painted stuff and dainty flowing
sleeves. Some said the wearer did not
seem more than twenty years old in
this gown. Mrs. West's hair ia still a
rich golden brown. Once a tactless
woman taxed Mrs. West with preserv
ing the color of her hair artificially.
Mrs. West answered: "It is true I use
something, but why should I have
streaks of gray haifc spoiling the ef
fect? It would be it- shame. I fancy
no one has seen a gray hair in my
head. They never sh»l, even if I must
wear a wig. I canrutt understand why
any woman shoulfr-'fail to use every
means to tnhance,. appearance.
Now. you may s»y» that Mrs. West
dyes a wisp or two of hair."

THE VACATION CURE.
The man who, when asked if he were
going to take a vacation this year, said:
"Oh, yes; my wife leaves on Tuesday
and won't be home till the Ist of Octo
ber," and then wondered at the smile
that went around, was yet not perhaps
so far afield after all. At least this Is
the drift of a certain recent magazine
article by a well known feminine writ
er. "We need vacations from each oth
er." she writes, "and even those whose
relations with each other are closest
and dearest—perhaps I should say par
ticularly those whose relations are
such—require a respite.
"A well known woman, one who Is
also a charming hostess and modelwife
and mother, says that she is morally
certain neither friends nor 'home folk*
would find her so agreeable were it not
for the fart that she makes it a point
to take periodical vacations from all of
them. 'It is impossible,' she says frank
ly, 'for human beings made after the
average pattern not to bore each other
to extinction if they have to look into
each other's faces 365 days out of the
year. A woman is infinitely more at

seen her for a little while, and a man Is
far more lovable to a woman If there is

A TRUE GHOST
If there is anything true in spiritual
ism Aunt Cassandra will come ba<-k to
see us before she settles in her heaven
ly home," Mrs. Horace Hayden was
saying as they mounted the stairs pre
vious to retiring for the night. "It
would give me no surprise, for such
manifestations are frequent, and she
promised me before she died that she
would certainly return if conditions
were favorable. How delightful to
welcome a visitor from the world of
spirits. Do you not agree with me,
"Y-p-s. dear, certainly," stammered
Mr. Hayden, who had small faith in the
materialization of spirits, "but don't
you think, dear, that Aunt Cassandra
is better employed where she is than in
spooking—l beg your pardon—appear
ing as a ghost in such an uncongenial
atmosphere as this? I am not myself
familiar with the habits of such visit
ors, are you?"
"This is not a subject for ridicule,"
said his wife, with tears in her eyes.
"You know how much Aunt Cassandra
was to me —how dearly we loved each
other —and now that she is no longer
with us in the flesh, you surely would
not object to entertaining her spirit?"
Mr. Hayden was a rapid calculator,
and he quickly figured in his mental
arithmetic that after boarding and
clothing his wife's aunt in the flesh all
the period of his married life, it would
look niggardly to draw the line at her
spirit. So he said, cheerfully:
"My dear Agnes, she will be most
welcome, if she comes. But Ido hope
that your stipersensitiveness will not

one thousand and ninety-flve regular
meals and several hundred irregular
ones, who has had to cater to fastidious
appetites on a quick-lunch basis of ex
penditure, that woman without doubt
has earned a vacation from servants,
appetites and eaters of meals, and all
of these will fare the better If the vaca
tion is taken.
"Uninterrupted matrimony can be
come the greatest bore on earth. In
six months a man has told his wife
pretty much everything he knows that
he has any intention of telling her. and
has listened to her opinion on every
subject under the sun times without
number, and the best thing they both
can do is to go foraging for three
months for something new to think
and talk about, and give absence a
c-Jiance to make the heart grow fonder.
If people were married only three days
in the week, instead of seven, there
would be fewer divorces.
"Somebody says that the reason
many a man is able to endure his home
Is that he has the business day respite
from it to brace him up, and that the
insane asylums are so overcrowded
with women, married women, simply
because their lives are crammed so full
of the same people, prejudices and
points of view day after day.
"The summer heglra is distinctly a
'first aid to domestic peace.' This is
possibly not the conventional vacation
point of view, but It is unquestionably
one that commends itself to the seeker
after things harmonious as well as the
student of sociology. At least it be
hooves the home-maker to consider the
vacation recipe as a cure for the do
mestic distemper that sooner or later
seems to attack the average family.**

every door that slams heralds your

want to leave her new quarters until
she gets acquainted and finds out if
some of her old neighbors that she was
doubtful of are there, and she will
wait to find out all about them before
she comes back to see you."
Mrs. Hayden looked suspiciously at
her husband, but he was busy wrest
ling with an unruly shoestring and
appeared innocently absorbed In the
task. She resumed:
"Dear Aunt Cassandra! How I miss
her good-night songs. She used to sing
the same melodies that were sung
when she was a youn# Kirl. Ah, it Is
true there are no songs like the old
songs, no tunes like the old ones.'
"That la true," answered her hus
band with enthusiasm, and, he added
to himself, "I'm mighty glad, too."
"Then you miss her music, also?"
suggested Mrs. Hayden.
"Music? O, yes, I never expoct to
hear any like It again. Never in this
world." Mr. Hayden was fortifying his
head with a pillow, when his wife ask
ed an apparently irrelevant question.
'Did you leave the side door open,
Horace, as I requested?"
Silence, then a snore. Mrs. Hayden
waited some little time, then she tip
toed softly down the stair to the re
