The Woman and thc Feline.
[Isabel Gordon Curtis in "Success
A Western judge- let us hope
lie had boen singularly unfortun
ate in his female relatives- recent
ly remarked that all women were
cats. Women read iluvt press dis
patch every where, one morning,
and for a few hours at least the ears
of that judge must have burned.
?Still, there are women wno indors
ed his judgment, although they feel
tha tho might have qualified his re
mark and saul ''some women are
eats." One can't help wondering I
why poor pussy, from time im
memorial, should have, been pick
ed out as the prototype of a mean
treacherous, back-biting woman,
for a cat which is well-fed and
kindly treated is n lovable animal
and, queerly enough, it is the
animal on which most woman lav
ish their love. A man who studies
thc traits of dumb creatures tells
us, however, that the female eat
treats tho species of her own sex
in a peculiarly mean anti vicious
manner, lt bites instead of back
biting, and, at the first throb of
jealousy, will scratch like a good
fellow. If that is so, we have to
confess that there arc cat-like, wo
men everywhere, in thc lowest
rank of life and in the highest, for
we have had cat-like queens; clever
old Queen Bess had many a pussy
The New Styles For Women.
"If the new summer gowns have
a conspicuous note at all this year
it is in their trimmings, which
seem to stand out in bold relief,*'
s.tys Grace Margaret Gould in
Woman's Home Companion for
May. "Much soutache in all
wi Iths and heavy cotton braid are
used, in white and dyed to match
the fabric. In thc skirt and coat
suits thc outline of the coat is
shown by thc linc of braiding, and
either braid or buttons not infre
quently trim the back.
Tassels arc very much used
whenever a place tor them can bc
found. The heavy and the linc
laces arc fashionable in combina
tion for trimming both gowns and
"Very narrow satin plaitings
are much used as a trimming for
silk voile Ond net gowns. They
are often introduced in some bril
liant shade; such as Kmpire green
on a gown of neutral tint. Plait
ing's of this style frequently simu
late a bib ulled on the bodice and
outline :i tunic oiled in lin-skirt.
"Buttons arc used not only
where they arc needed, but where
they arc not needed on tho new
gowns. For the tailored suits there
are thc fabric-covered buttons and
the braal buttons.
"Thc white and colored cotton
crochet button is extremely high
style, and for lingerie waists there
are thc new pearl head buttons."
