consequently selected for those places

Oh, what so true, so pure, so good,
As love and pride of motherhood?
The tender watching and the care,
That have no likeness anywhere?
What men most bold would fear to do
A mother's heart will carry through.
Love Is too strong to think on death,
A child is more than living breath.
A mother's love is fond and wise,
Her soui is in her baby' eyes;
Q To her the laugh that shakes its throat
Is sweeter than the thrush's note.
Her life is in the child she bears,
Nor withers with the waste of years;
Though promise may in failure die,
'Tis love that makes her weep and sigh.
Her love, indeed, outlives her days.
Her children treasure up her praise;
And, though no more they see her face,
11er name retains its native grace.

WINTER HATS IN FULL FEATHER.
Strange Combinatiom of Plumage q Fea
ture of New XMilunery.
Winter hats are literally out in full
feather, since feathers of every known,
and of many' heretofere unknown,
variety have come out at the top of the
list in hat trimm' . There are the
usual extremes and exaggerations of
fashion, with many pretty modifica
tions, altogether charming and becom
Toques are larger, and nearly all of
them turn up in front with a glitter
ing buckle or a bright rosette, with
osprey feathers. The crowns are
often in beefeater shape, or soft velvet
or silk, embroidered all over with
scrolls of narrow ribbon or worked
with steel or jet on net or horsehair.
Large hats with a brim, both medium
and extreme in size, figure largely iA
the variety, with some French bonnets
very odd in shape; which vill hardly
find favor. One is sort of scoop or
poke shape, very short in the back,
and suited only to the Madonna face.
It is fully decorated with feathers, as
is the case with all hats this season.
There are many novelties in feathers,
all sorts and kinds of made varieties,
and what are called trimmed feathers.
Ostrich plumes tipped with spots of
chenille are one specimen, and spotted
effects of all kinds are very much
used. The plumage of the gninea
fowl is a special feature of trimming,
both dyed and in its natural color, be
ing used sometimes as an edging for
brightly colored wings. Quills of
every kind and color, pheasants'
plumage, and Mercury wings in all
light and dark shades are employed.
Large birds with four wings, real
butterflies on bustard quills, and
osprey breast feathers with butterfies
are among the novelties. Feathers
ai e not the whole millinery ;hw,
however, varied as they are, for there
are lovely velvet plumes in soft, rich.
purple reds, pretty combinations of
lace and fur and tulle and fur, whichI
is decidedly new.
Conflicting suggestions as to the
kind of hat to buy and the special
variety which will be most popular are
as usual very freely given, but it is
impossible to settle on any one shape.
aexng so many. The hat that turns
back from the face is both becoming~
and striking in effect, but there are
quite as many hats that tilt down over.
the eyes. The most becoming hat is
the one to choose whatever the shape
may be. You are told that all-blackj
hats are not the thing, that bright
colors are to be very much worn; but
if you put a bright rosette or a showy
rhinestone buckle on your black hat
it will pass muster all the same. The.
color used must be bright and decided
to be effective, and not one of the
neutral tints or soft dull reds which'
are used) for the entire hat of velvet.
Tulle is combined very prettily with
velvet, being used in tiny gathered
ruches on the edge of the brim and.
forming some scroll design all over
the ersyn. It matches the velvet in!
color, or may be in a lighter or darker
shade. One stylish hat in black vel
vet has a twist of white silk fastened
with a handsome rhinestone buckle
around the crown, which is embroid
ered with white baby ribbon, and two~
white ostrich feathers for a finish.
Colored felt hats, with leathers and
trimming to match are very stylish.
Felt hats are considered especially
smart this season for wear with tailor
made gowns, and it is said that white
felt hats are coming into favor. A
shape in felt which is very odd has a
low, soft crown and a bowl-shaped
brim turning down to meet the hair
directly in the back, where velvet
rosettes fill in either side. High puffs
of velvet and shot taffeta trim the
front, with one feather in the middle
turning toward the back.-New York
Wvo:n~an's Part in the Spanish War.
At every camp in the United States
where troops were being mobilized
women could be seen daily in their
visits of ministration to the soldiers.
Every hospital in the land has been
the recipient of bounties, the resultof
women's work. It is not too much to
say that the women of the nation have
farnished a large per cent. of the hos
pital supplies, and that, too, after
making a hard fight to be allowed to
do so, after becoming impatient at the
tardy and incomplete provision by the
Government for the rapidly multiply
ing patients. Days and weeks were
spent in importuning the authorities
for atdmission before the indispensable
trained female nurses or saintly Sis
ters of Mercy and Charity were al
lowed in the hosnitals. The inade
quate corps of nurses of the regular
army of twenty-five thousand men
were deemed sufficient in the face of
the increase to two hundred thousand,
including the volunteer regiments,
not one of which brought a man titted
or desiring to be detailed in the hos-.
pital service, and this with a register:

fevers, yielded and placed in the
hands of the Executive Committee of
the Daughters of the .rmerican Revo
lation the power to appoint trained
nurses in the various army hospitals.
In the mean time, fortunately for the
sailors and soldiers of the nation,
through the Red Cross Society and in
the private and public hospitals of the
cities, many of our sick and wounded
were receiving the best of care and
the benefit of modern appliance3 and
methods of treating medical and
surgical patients. Women-God bless
them! from the highest to the lowest
walks of life-were everywhere busy
with their labors of love and mercy.

en. Mrs. L. Z. Leiter's munificent
gift of a hospital at Chickamauga has
been the greatest boon to the army
stationed on that historical ground.
And not alone were the nation's de
fenders the objects of their humanity
and tenderness. Their families came
in for a large share on the score of
their dependence upon those who had
gone in the service of their country.

One or Chicago's Cierer Women.
One of the most widely known, most
generally consulted and busiest wom
en in Chicago is Dr. Sarah Hackett
Stevenson. In 1870, at Philade!phia,
Dr. Stevenson was admitted tv the
American Medical Association, the
first woman ever so honored. Since
then she has steadily followed her
profession with the exception of two
years, which she gave up to work in
the Chicago Woman's Club, of which
she was President during the World's
Dr. Stevenson is a widow, and took
up her work after her husband's
death. She had splendid opportunity
for study. During a visit to Europe
she met Professor Huxley, and studied
with him for two years. She now
holds the chair of obstetrics in the
Woman's Medical College of the
Northwertern University, ani is
PreZident and founder of the Chicago
Maternity Hospital, organized a little
over a year ago. This hospital is one
of the doctor's hobbies. It has two
unique features: On is that patients
are not permitted to leave until the
doctor feels assured they are perfectly
well and strong; the other feature is
the training of nursery maids. Young
women, preferably between the ages
of eighteen and twenty-five, are thor
oughly taught to care for babies. The.
course is for six months, during which
time instructic a is given in the proper
dressing and feeding of infants and
small children; and the hygiene neces
sary to properly nurse the babies.
Thus has been opened a new profes
sion for young women, and Dr.
Stevenson says that there are fifty ap
plications for these trained children
nurses to one that can be filled.
Dr. Stevenson is a tall, stately wom
n, with almost white hair. She is
gentle and courteons to strangers,
though never effusive. She was in
strumental in founding the Illinois
Training School, the first of its kind
in the West, and, altogether, is a womn
an that women delight to honor s and

and a second signal-boy on the poop,
all of whom were charged with tho

ship was visited below; they were
carefully to watch for any packages
that might be laid :-cown or left by
visitors, on the -supposition that dy

inspect the routes over which visitors
had passed. The officer In charge of
the marine guard was required to
make at least two visits during the

A TEA ROLLING MACHINE.
Invention of a Japanese Genius That Will
Do the Work of 100 Women.
The Japanese newspapers are rejoic
ing over the invention by a native
genius of a machiinig for rolling tea.
The great cost of the production of
tea lies in the labor. Each individual
leaf -must be plucked from the plant
and handled with the fingers several
times before it can be sent to market.
Therefore the industry of tea raising
is unprofitable without cheap labor.
and the deft fingers of women. At
Summerville, S. C., a high quality of
tea has been grown with great suc
cess, cultivated and harvested by col
ored girls at a small expense, judged
from an American standard, but the
women in China and Japan are paid
from four to eight cents a day for
twelve hours' labor and board them
selves. If they should receive the
wages of women factory hands in this
country tea would cost four or five
times as much as it does now.
In Japan wages are rapidly advanc
ing with the development of civiliza
tion. In China and Ceylon they re
main about the same, but the women
of those countries will certainly follow
the example of their sisters in Japan
ns their intzlligence is cultivated.
Therefore the invention of a tea nr:.
chine Is as important to the great in
ustry of those countries as the inven
tion of the cotton gin was to. the
outh. Inventive genius has been en
gaged upon the problem for many
years without being able to contrive
any substitute for huinan fingers, but
now it is claimed that thvy new ma
chine is a success, and can manufac
ture nearly a ton of tea In twenty
Eour hours, with the labor of one man
and a boy or a girl. This is equiva
Lent to the work of a hundred women.
A Chinese Permutation.
A story which, if not true, is not
badly told, appeaurs in The Boston
Transript, to the effect that while the
bark Cape City was at Hong Kong a
Chinaman was engaged to paint the
necessary name on each bow.
He produced on one bow the legend
"Capecity," without a space between
the two words. Then he noted that
the "y" was nearest to the ship's stern
and remembering this fact, he afforded
an excellent example of how severely
logical his race can be, for in a ittle
while he had painted on the other bow
