LIVING IN A BIG CITY.
LIGHT HOUSEKEEPING; WHAT IT
MEANS AND HOW IT IS DONE.
It la Mot Bad for Voaa Married Folks
Woo Id Be Good) for Baebelors Alito for
Groups of Girls, If Only They Could K
Persuaded to Try It.
Light housekeeping has become almost a
scandalous terra, because of its abnse here
and elsewhere; but, nevertheless, there is a
great deal of such hoaekeeping in New
York that is eminently respectable. Some
times the partners are man and wife; some
times the j are bachelors, and sometimes,
though more rarely perhaps, yonng women
engaged, as the census says, in "gainful oc
cupations" dressmakinp, shop tending,
literary work, or what not. Most families
of this sort breakfast at home and dine at
restaurants. Nobody believes, of course,
that dining at restaurants is any cheaper
than dining at home.
In fact, it is vastly dearer, unless the res
tanrants be of the fifteen cents a meal va
riety. Bat light housekeeping dispense
with maid servant, hospitality and a good
deal of rent. It is peculiarly well adapted
to those families of two, in which both hus
band and wife help to earn a living. Aa
the wife is out all day, she cannot attend to
household duties of a very exacting char
acter, and as economy is the object the
family cannot employ a maid servant.
So two rooms, or at furthest three, are
rented instead of four, five or six; a gas
stove is nsed only for an hour in the morn
ing; the "hou.se"' is bested by steam, shared
in common with other tenants, and thus
what is lost in the cost of restaurant din
ners is saved in rent, fuel and wages. Un
furnished apartments of two or three rooms
in respectable parts of the city may be
rented at from $S to fio a month.
If a young couple chooses to occupy apart
ments in one of the great sanitary tene
ments put up for the respectable poor, the
rent will fall considerably below the smaller
of these figures. The cost of breakfast is
a mere trifle, and really poor folk, that are
willing to put np with such an apology for
a home, may live almost as cheaply in the
heart of New York as in the country. A
clever woman can make even suc h quarters
as these cozy and attractive, and the possi
bility of such a mode of life has hastened
many a marriage.
Bachelors li vinginthis fashion manage
very comfortably, thousrli, of course, at
greater expet.se-, because few men are con
tent to get their ovrn break fats and attend
to their ov:i apartmeiiTs. Tl:; homeless
habit prevents most bachelor In r.sekeeping
from going beyond the ii;ht"' stage,
though when once a maid servant Incomes
a cecessi'y, it is cheaper to have rill nie-ils
prepare! at home. Tew young men. how
ever, are t unrer.t to forego the g'.itter and
hum f f ti e cheerful re-tauraut, with its
motley iMmp.'tcy And varied bills of fare.
Better and more wholesome dinners could
be prepared j.t home for less than half th
money, bnt the charm of contact with the
world is lost, and there is always t he danger
that the ulisence of one part ner may leave
the 01 iier to dine alone.
WHY WOMEN DON'T CLt R. -
Women seem to fkid it tliflicult to keep
bouse togfther. Perhaps they are less
adaptable than men, or perhaps the strain
of constant contact, from which men may
escape by going out into the world,' makes
friction inevitable. At any rate, there are
thousands of women living lonely lives in
boardiug houses, when "all the comforts
of a home" are within their reach if only
they choose to form a housekeeping part
nership. TLe dreariness of boarding house
life for women is a thing that men would
not endure. In some of the poorer but
still respectable boarding houses the par
lor is rented to a physician, so t hat there is
no common room where lo4gers may re
Ail the ngliness of human life shows it
self at such places, yet women of delicate
sensibilities endure it, because they fancy
that they could not undertake the task of
housekeeping with other women. "I dou't
know any girl with whom I'd dare try such
an experiment," said an art student, when
this idea was suggested to her. Another
woman, who had established a little home
of her own, confessed that she was very
well pleased that a friend living in like
manner as herself had not taken apart
ments in the s.-.me honse. For the f.r, $S
or ?S a week that each of four women pays
for the discomforts of a Iwarding house all
could have a cozy little home in common.
But in this whole fity there are probably
only :t few score such homes.
Some charitable women in I'.rooklyn dis
covered that nearly a d risen shopgirls were
lodcing in one modera:e .sized room, where
tbey pit-pared their breakfasts in theroorn
ing and sjit at night unless the streets
proved more :: tractive. Such women earn
from iC. to 7 a week.
i i:f.!KCT::r v.-ouk.
They must j. resent a decent out ward ap
pearance: but it has been discovered that
in the case of the poorest the one visible
garment is almost the only scrap of cloth
ing they possess. F,r the most part, these
girls have utmost no skill as neediewomen
and little knowledge of t.;it- housekeeping
art. They simply mau.r.ue to exist, atid
that by constant hard work and rigid, if
-Will open their
not always Intelligent, economy. IX is a
cherished plan of the Young Women's
Christian Association of Brooklyn to build
a large lodging house, where thes-e women
may live ai d carry on a species cf light
housekeepit g. Th? price of lodging will
be placed w.thiu the reach of the poorest
girls, but ech will pay something for the
comforts she receives. At the same time
the associat iou's ela.s-es in needlework and
general domestic economy will give the
girls an opportunity to learn the arts neces
sary to the maintaining of a home. It is
6aid that al vady the instruction imparted
in the clas-s of this association has pro
moted man r marriages. Light housekeep
ing for single women ought also to lie pro
motive of n at rimony.
Light hcusekeeping -in New York as
sumes man curious forms. The city is so
large that there i room for au iudultrence
of ail sorts of tastes. There are fi:r.ilies
that never meet except at dinner. There
are others that are together only at break
fast. There are probably very few, rich or
poor, that take three meals per day to
gether. One anxious woman is the en
thusiastic i.dvocate of cooking in common,
or, more b-oadly, co-operative housekeep
ing. All sorts of ingenious devices have
been inven ed for promoting this idea.
