It is the official poster of the Pan
American exposition, and nearly 1,000,
000 copies have been Bent throughout
this country and all the others in the
world where artistic taste and senti

been enthusiastically claimed that the

to the untutored son of the desert as to
the polished connoisseur of the Paris

sweetest picture poem of the great wa

has the very rhythm of color, and one

feel a kot-n ecstasy in the death that
sends them into the arms of such a
beautiful creature as glories the poster.
From Germany, where poster print
ing has reached the height of perfec
tion, some several thousand requests
for copies, and from France, England
and Russia too. So great indeed has be
come the demaud that the Fan-American
management has ordered 500,000
more of them to be printed.
Mrs. Cary is n member of the board
of woman managers of the Fau-Anier-iean
exposition, is chairman of the
committee on fine arts, and her name
Is associated with all the art societies
She has been president of the Buf
falo Society of Artists, and her pic
tures, especially portraits, have attain
ed national reputation. As chairman
of the women's committee on Cue arts
she is doing much to further the Inter

A "Freak Book" the Latent.
The latest fad of the eternally invent
ive feminine is the "freak" book. The
idea has been introduced to polite soci
ety by a little woman who recently at
tended a reunion of southern folk in
New York and who happened to men
tion her possession in connection with
Bomo Incident of her childhood recalled
by one of the company. This led to ex
planations and a wholesale demand by
the other women to see the novelty.
They saw it, and since then they have
all started imitations of the book.
The freak book Is a book of life. It
may be worked up from the start of an
ordinary Bcrapbook provided it be of
large size and have its pages set rather
wide apart in the binding. A brief de
scription of the original freak book will
give a pretty good Idea of the spread
On the first page Is pasted the first
picture taken of the owner, showing
her in her baby clothes, all eyes and
chubby face. It is not at all necessary
that the date of this picture be written
below it. The lack of this figure will
provide the owner's friends with food
for speculation and thus enhance the
enjoyment of looking through the book.
A little lock of golden hair tied with a
L'!;ie ribbon 13 glued to the page and
acts as a reminder of the changing
power of time.
Then come various mementos of
school days, a bit of slate pencil tied to
a page, a copy of the first "composi
tion," a signature In a cramped, pains
taking band, calling up visions of the
plump little fingers and the troubles
tbey had in making the pen do its du
ties; after this boarding school remind
ers, photographs of her friends and of
herself in the gorgeous "commence
ment gown," little sentiments in proso
and verse written by her fellows, a eu
logistic account In the local paper of
the graduation exercises and the win
ning of medals.
Later the return home and the intro
duction to society, more newspaper
clippings (this time descriptive of her
"coming out party"), cards of this and
that admirer long forgotten, a german
favor here and there, a scrap of poetry
scrawled in" a masculine band, a refer
ence to a trip to New York, a tin horn
fastened in to bring up a night on
Broadway during election time, a cab
alistic sign or two interpretable only
by the owner.
Further aloDg an engagement an
nouncement, a page devoted to the
wedding, some faded orange blossoms
and rice grains scattered profusely
over a page.
These are a few of the entries in the
first freak book. The women who
re following the idea are developing
novelties from their inner conscious
1 -4f mM
ness and are united in pronouncing the
new diversion "lots of fun." New
In the Queen's Robes.
Many of the newspapers In their
references to Queen Victoria's death,
says a writer in the New York livening
Post, have mentioned as one of her
best known portraits that painted near
the beginning of her reign by Thomas
Sully for the St. George's society of
Philadelphia. A letter written by a
daughter of Sully in 1S3S tells the sto
ry of the last sitting for this picture,
including perhaps the only case in his
tory where an American girl person
ated a queen in the queen's own pres
ence and by her consent. It seems
that Sully wished to have the royal
Jewels to paint from, and the queen
kindly proposed to put them on. But
he protested that the sitting would be
too long and tedious and suggested
that he be allowed to bring his daugh
ter as his model. The queen assented,
and the next day he brought Miss
Blanche Sully to the palace. They
were ushered Into a room where, near
a window, was" a dais covered with
crimson and the queen's throne chair
of crimson and gold mounted on it.
One of the ladies In waiting helped
deck the young American girl in the
diamond earrings, the collar of St.
George and the other Jewels and pose
her on the throne. A moment later
Queen Victoria appeared.
"As the queen approached," said the
girl in describing the scene to her
friends, "I descended from the throne
in my borrowed plumes and made a
low obeisance. Her majesty returned
it and immediately entered into conver
sation with me, asking various ques
tions, such as whether this was my
first visit to England, how I liked it.
etc.; then asked father my age and,
after chatting and looking at the pic
ture, withdrew not, however, before
my father had requested her auto
graph." Afterward the queen sent by a lady
in waiting an autograph addressed to
Mr. Sully aud one to Miss Blanche,
with a little head of herself modeled in
silver, showing her as she looked while
Princess Victoria, which she requested
the girl to accept as a souvenir of the
visit. A few days later Sully took his
daughter to pose for him in the corona
tion robe. They were furnished with
proper credentials addressed to the
queen's robemaker, and Miss Blanche
had to play the queen again. The great
robe she described as six yards' long,
of velvet, lined with ermine, aud so
heavy that she was heartily glad when
her father had finished his sketches.
Solving tlie Servant Question.
The little woman with the high fore
head and the eyeglasses was laying
down the law to her callers. They all
seemed impressed. This may have
been a politeness felt to be due to tlie
hostess. Again, it may have been hon
est. All things are possible where wo
man is concerned. At all events the
woman who was at home was ex
pounding with much force.
"What is needed," she said, "is not so
much newspaper notoriety on the sub
ject of the servant girl as it is reform
nt the intelligence office. There is
where the root of the evil lies. In a
great many of these places business is
conducted in the most lax manner. 1
have tried the 1 place, the ?2 placo
and the place, and except for a dif
ference in surroundings the places are
"There ought to be a law passed re
stricting each individual intelligence
office to a particular class of servants.
Thi3 would not hurt the business of
the proprietors. It would help the
housekeeper. For instance, I would
license one place to provide German
servants, another for Irish girls, a
third for the Swede, a fourth for the
negro, with her knowledge of southern
cooking; again, a place where Chinese
help might be bad; then a place for the
American born domestic. I tell you
this system would be hailed with de
light by a long suffering public which
worries alomg with anything the office
sends up In acknowledgment of the fee.
"Further than this, I would subdi
vide the nationalities, allowing one of
fice to deal in cooks, another in cham
bermaids, a third In nurses, another In
housemaids, etc. By this means a wo
man might go direct to the place licens
ed to supply the ' domestic article of
which she was In need, and her time,
the time of the 'help' and, the time of
the proprietors of the offices would be
"There is another thing I would In
sist upon, and that would be the ap
pointment of some efficient woman to
act as overseer of all these places. We
have special attorney generals for the
metropolitan district, special excise
men, special examiners of almost every
known description, but no expert to
visit intelligence offices and see that
the law is being carried out to the let
ter. There hasn't been a change in our
employment agency laws since 1S01,
and we've become sensible to a good
many needs in the last ten j-ears. Will
you help me legislate for this improve
ment?" The callers politely said they would.

- Heroine of Many Novels.
The world is blessed with so much
feminine beauty today that a young
woman must possess an uncommonly

popular admiration with the adulation

Mrs. Langtry fairly startled London
with her youthful physical perfection
no like sensation has been known until
the Hon. Violet Mary, sister of Lord
Civian and daughter of an ancient no

The house of Vivian, old and very
honorable though it is, has not in later
times known great wealth, so that the

In Taris, whence tlie fashions come,
the women are wearing their hair
dressed low on the nape of the neck,
and it Is predicted that before long
the chignon will be back again. The
proprietors of the hairdressing estab
lishments settled It. They held their
annual meeting and dinner not long
ago and decided that the low style of
hairdressing should prevail. Each year
in this way the lords of the brush and
the curling tongs set the fashion in
hair, and usually their edict is obeyed
till a year later they amend it and set
a new standard.
But this is in Taris. It is predicted
by hairdressers here that it will be
some time before American women
who are devoted at present to wearing
their hair high comply with tlie de
cree. Whether the hair is dressed high
or low, however, it must be beautifully

It could be easily shaken down were

A new ribbon loop coiffure is being
successfully introduced by fashionable
hairdressers, and this is how it is ar
ranged: Wave the hair all around the
head and gather lightly on the top,

the hair into strands and form into
loops or puffs by doubling over the
open hand and securing to the main
fastening. Curl the ends and arrange
around the loops, which may be made

Sarah ana Her Male Attire.
Sarah Bernhardt says the story that
when she is to essay men's pants she
wears men's clothes for months before
hand in order to become accustomed to
them and unconscious of self is absurd.
"With the donning of the costume," she
writes, "I am the character. Assuredly,
yes, I believe in the influence of envi
ronment. Given tlie surroundings and
costume belonging to a character which
I have previously studied, I am that
personage and deport myself as he
would do. Every movement must be
that of a man. There must be no lapse
into feminine graces, intonations and
cajoleries. There is no desire to do so
when the part is thoroughly absorbed.
Fascination there can be ma foi, yes!
But it must be that of the man, not of
the woman. L'Aiglon shows playful
ness, affection and cajolery in the scene
with his grandfather, but they are
those qualities as felt and exhibited by
a boy and not as a woman. I have no
special time or place for study. When
I am working up a new role, I think of
nothing else until I have completely as
sociated myself with the character. I
will study in my carriage, In bed, when
eating all the time."
