Wimirn Worker. In KnKlnnil.
At the recent conference of women
workers held in I Brighton. Lugland. al
most every subject under the sun was
touched upon. "Touched upon" Is used
advisedly, for the time limit made it
iiujKissible for any speaker to do more
than tell what she would talk about
had she the opportunity. Still, with
the vogue suggestion has nowadays,
hints and words to the wise do more
than did two hour discourses in former
times to set people to thinking and act
ing iu new and better directions. It is
hardly possible, brief as were the ad
dresses made at this conference, to
even give a list of the subjects; but. as
Mrs. Humphry Ward was the most
proiniucut speaker and as her subject
was one of deep interest everywhere,
a glimpse at it at least may be record
ed. It was 'The Traiuing and the Alt

After the two were on the street

been thinking it over ever siiue. aud
with Sherlock Holmes' ingenuity, they
have decided That she is a professional
pocket book tinder who goes to a niati
nee every Wednesday and Saturday
and as she comes out of the theater
looks for nockctbooks on the floor.
These young women say that then
never was a matinee in the world
where at least two women didn't lose

convinced that the woman of the three
pocketliooks makes it her business to
corral pocketbooks and other uiNsin

There has been so much said of late
through the newspapers of the lack of

"I am very glad that 1 am in a posi
tion to refute some statements made
about euual suffrage in Colorado. I
have been actively engaged In the cam
paigu from beginning to end. Two
years ago a few women organized the
Woman's Republican league. This fall
we reorganized under the name of the
Woman's Republican League of Colo

this league from the ranks of the best
and most representative women of
Denver; also organizations iu almost
every tow n In the state. J lie Junior

matters for the reason that, as vice

"Denver was organized in this man

woman of influence); each precinct
had its chairman, who had a house to
house canvass made to be certain that
all Republican women were registered.
Certain women were delegated to look
after i n di tie rent voters on flection day.
"The Democratic women had a good.
strong organization of the best women
in that party, and whoever says that
the women of Colorado have little in

ment. There are indifferent women iu
the state just as there are indifferent
men. but they belong to the minority."
The Colorado Springs Oav.efle says
of the part taken by women in tlio last
"It is not ofu-n lu a political cam

have the efficient adjunct of u woman's
organization: neither do the lienighteci
people of the east understand the val

government is being waged. If they
did. woman suffrage would exist in
every state in the T'nion.
"Colorado has been fortunate in
the exercise of the elective franchise
by the women since it was conferred
upon them in 1V.". Whenever and
wherever they have unitedly acted to
better political condition they have
succeeded in a manner to put the men
to shame in the completeness and effi
ciency of their work.

up and down the walk which led from

the former place a national flag almost
hid the little veranda, which was trau
formed iuto a lower of flowers and fo
liage, for the day was warm and dry,
as if nature, too. smiled upon the occa
sion. Soft rugs carpeted the walk to
the gate, and there the bridal party
formed after the guests had been re
ceived. A tiuy girl aud boy tastefully
gowned formed a fair advance guard
for the party aud scattered flowers on
the way from the Southwick home to
the chattel. The stage was a mas of
ferns, and iu the center was a small
silk American flag. Here and there on
the walls of the chapel were military
ensigns ami guidon in beautiful col
ors, ami a portiere of flags hid the bal
cony, behind which a stringed quartet
struck sweet straius.
"The ceremony was performed iu
front of the stage, and the solemn
words of the ritual were spoken to the
strain of the hidden music. Through
the ribboned aisle the bridal procession
retreated ami marched to the colonel's
home. The regimental band played in
welcome, and squads of soldiers stood
in attention about the lawn, while Mr.

Plea For ( Uliklnn Schools.
"The ones w ho talk against the cook
ing schools of today are only those wljo
have very little practical knowledge of
their methods and results." said a prac
tical housewife after attending an un
usually interesting "lesson." and the
truth of this has beeu repeatedly no
ticed. The opinion is too general that cook
ing school methods are antagonistic to
health ami economy, when the truth is
quite the reverse. This prejudice may
arise from the fact that demonstration
lectures, as reported in the newspapers.
generally illustrate the more elaborate
dishes, such lectures being given to
suggest novelties or to please the de
mand for something extra nice.
Sometimes, however, the mote eco
nomical dishes are demonstrated, but
the general audience or reader fails to
understand it as such. A woman will
read a rule which calls for a cupful of
this, half a cupful of that, flour to mix.
etc.. and confuse its brevity with plain
ness and economy. ivo her a recipe
caning lor naif the expense, our wnu
accurate measurement and the proper
way of mixing and cooking carefully

fussy for her." This may be a reflec
tion on her common sense, hut it is
ofteu true nevertheless.
Cooking school methods are scientific
methods, and these should be the guide
always in preparing food for the fam
ily. And it is only ihose who under
stand these fads from practical knowl
edge who rightly appreciate cooking
schools and the good work they are
doing throughout the country in these
days of advancement along scientific
and domestic lines. Philadelphia Rec

Sarah Rcrnhardt says that writers
on beauty often try to impress upon
their readers that neither joy nor grief.
neither laughter nor tears, should be
permitted to mar the smoothness of the
kin or the softness of the mouth's
urves. They should have the face look
like a waxen mask.
There is. however, a happy medium
between the expressionless, dull, uu-
wrinkled face and the face which is
full of character, but wrinkled by un-
coutroihd temper and tingoveriied
mood-. We should nuver try not lo
feel, but cultivate the self control that
subdues th manifestations of feeling
iu frowns or puckering.. Cultivate re
pose, is the "divine Sarah's" advice, if
you desire to remain beautiful.
