ew woman is to be found

and is yet a true American has been well
proved. The Consul of one of the South
American Republics, when visited in
regard to advance movements going
on in his country, said that women
were largely instrumental in promot
ing enterprises looking to speedy
development of people and country.
Many women of energy and note were
spoken of. Especially have the Venez
nelans been active. From Cuba there
have gone during the years of conflict
with Spain many refugees. particularly
women and children, and these have
been helped in every possible way by
the leading women of Caracas. A
woman's club was organized in the
capital of Venezuela in the summer of
1897. It is called "Daughters of
America" (Hijas de America), which
title shows its object to be far reach
ing. The pr.esident is Senora Andrea
de Mercado, wife of Lorenzo Mercado,
one of the wealthy and cultured
citizens of the Republic. Senora
Ana de Mola is the treasurer.
Her husband is a member of one of
the oldeFi. families of Cuba, and this
woman's work for her sex is dictated
by her hatred of oppression and de
sire to elevate her sex to a sphere of
Senorita Aminto Consuega, who is
the secretary of the club, is called one
of the most talented and progressive
of the women who are in public or
semi-public positions. Shehastraveled
extensively in both hemispheres,
speaks fluently several languages, and

The languages, too, are generally
taught, educated people always speak

French, and English is also learned.
It is, however, more dificult to speak
English and other languages, although
many read and understand it well.
Senorita Conregua constantly de

Advice-tO the Stout Woman.
Gae of the commonest and at the
- ime time most telling faults of the
dress-skirt of the woman who is stout
through the hips and the abdomen is
the inclination to rise up in front,
which ruins any gown. Rather have
your dress-skirt long enough to step
on it than short. It detracts from
your height, makes you look stouter,
rhows the feet plainly, and takes all
grace and style from the general
make-up. A cut that gives a high
waist line and shoulders in the back
adds apparent height. Short, fat
arms look better in moderately close
sleeves rather than the present ultra
tightness, and take on better propor
t ions if trimmed up and down the arm,
falling well over the wrist.. The short
neck looks longer when the collar is
quite high and plain, and should be
set quite low on the bodice, but not
low enough to make the flesh roll at
the line where the collar- and the
bodice meet. Ruche-hike effects have
a tendency to shorten the neck and
lessen the shoulder curve, and should
be worn only by women who have
-- some length of neck. Bretelles
lengthen the waist, but must be -very
narrow and pcinted at the waist-line,
and gr-ow broader at the top of the
shouldere. Flaring high collars are
niot designed for wvomen of short, fat
necks. Belts made quite pointed in
front, with a hitch-up in the back, are
an improvement to the woman whose
fullness of stomach lies high, giving
her a long-waisted appearance. Wom
en with exaggerated busts look better
with some sort of fullness or trimming
at this point, and the same rule ap
plies to the woman dev,id of flesh at
this point. Fussily trimmed revers
and turn-ove r collars help cover up
deficiencies of the slender woman,
while for the stor.t woman the trim
mings should be flat and severe.
Study harmony of color, consistency
in style, and give the same considera
tion and acknowledgment to.short
comings as to your good points, and
the matter of successful dressing is
-made much easier.--Ladies' Home
Foulardi Wa4icin1g Costume.
The most promising fabrics for sum
mer dress occasions are light buntings,
veilings,.crepe de Chine, and foulards,
among the non-washable fabrics.
Among these, foulard, which is an old
and tried favorite, has obtained a firm
position in woman's wardrobe. Not
only is a gown of this material useful
and dainty for summer wear, but where
the materials are well chosen it will
likewise do good service as an in-door
gown for informal evenings at home
during the autumn and winter. The
new prodnets of this season are, many
of them. elaborately stamped and fan

The Engagement Kingr.
The wearing of colored stones fo,
engagement rings is one of the latesi
society fads. Once a solitaire, just a
big as the purse, or rather the gen
erosity of the fiance would permit him
to buy, was the only correct thing.
But a certain imperious young girl
who made a point of wearing nothing
but rubies insisted that her engage
ment circlet should be set with this
beautiful stone. She may be said to
have set the fashion, and she has founcl
Many girls now prefer their engage
ment ring shall contain their birth
stone, and rings with stones of every
color have caught the popular fancy
and the engaged young man's ducats.
There is only one rule for engagement
rings. They must be set severely and
simply,'with no attempt at the unique
or elaborate. The stone should be the
favorite of its prospective owner.
A pretty, old-time custom that has
for centuries been in vogue in Ger
many has now crossed the waters and
found favor here, and that is the fash
ion of exchanging engagement rings.
The girl gives her betrothed a ring
which he wears presumably with as
much pleasure and secret satisfaction
as it gives her to see his love token on
her own slim finger.
A French Florence Nightingale.
Mine. Coralie Cahen, who has just
died at Nenilly in her sixty-seventh
year, may be described without exag
geration as the Florence Nightingale
of the Franco-German war. Having
lost her husband and her only child
just before hostilities broke out, she
resolved to devote her life to the cause
of humanity. She organized an am
bulance corps at Metz, and remained
at her post till the capitulation. Tours
was the next scene of her labors, and
Gambetta intrusted to her the hospital
at Vendome. Peace came, and she
hurried to Lorraine to look after the
hordes of returning prisoners. Find
ing that many were still missing, she
passed into Germany and under the
protection of the Empress Augusta
visited sixty-six fortresses, where she
procured the release of many captives
detained for various offenses. Her
work was not then done, for she be
sieged the war office in Berlin till she
had traced 59,000 dead or living
Frenchmen, of whom the authorities
in Paris had no knowledge. Her re
maining years were spent in charge of
the Jewish Orphanage at Neuilly, and
not until 1889 did she receive the cross
of the Legion of Honor .--London
Queen Victoria's Imnpartial Outinas'.
The recent visit of Queen Victoria
to the Riviera is the thirteenth since
her accession to the throne. The
position occupied by the British
sovereign happily robs her foreign
tours of political significance, and her
movements are not liable to cause
panics in European chancelleries or
furnish matter for profound leading
articles in the organs of public opinion.
But, as if to deprive her annual tour
of any apparent political bias, her
Majesty. since her accession, has shown
the greatest catholicity in the choice
Since 1843 she has paid thirteen
visits to France, ten to Germs.ny,
four to Italy, two to Belgium, one to
Austria and one to Switzerland. Her
first visit to the Riviera was in 1882.
This henceforth became her favorite
foreign residence, for since that visit
her MIajesty has returned no fewer
than seven times. During her visits
to France her 3Majesty has greeted the
representative of every regime, mon
archy, empire and republic, her first
visit being to King Louis Philippe,
her only visit to Par-is being as the
guest of the Emperor Napoleon III.,
while two years ago she had an inter
view with 31 Felix Faure.
The newest bracelet is exceedingly
oriental in design. It is a heavy gold
ring, which slips on and off over the
hand and is studded with three gems,
a jade stone, amethyst and coral.
Another novelty in the bracelet iine is
also a heavy gold hoop, from which is
suspended no less than half a dozen
bangles in animal designs. Pigs.
goats, dogs and horses appear to be
the favorites. These animal bangles
arc also much used as watch charms.
Crepe in the Widow's Gown.
In England the widow's gown is
made almost entirely of the crepe,
the flounces around the skirt, panels,
and other facings being also of it. It
is said that heavy crepe is to be more
worn this year in England than ever
before, since the Princess of WVales
and members of the royal family are
wearing very deep morning for Prince
Albert of Coburg.

the system of taking thumb marks fo
the identification of prisoners was
troduced in several of the In -'an
prisons some time ago, but in a est
case brought before the Calcut igh
Court it was decided that er tho
existing Indian Eviden act these
impressions were admissible as
evidence. The- was also the diffi
culty of classit.ying and indexing the
finger impressions, but this has since
been over' ome by a system eiaboiated
by the:inspector-General of Police in
Bengal, and the bill now before the
Indian Office in England will probably
become law, states the Sun.
.n a country like India, where the
people are so illiterate, the mere
affixing of a mark certified to by wit
nesses to a document has little legal
value, the facilities afforded to forgery
,being so great. But the imprint of
the lines of the thumb or of one of the
fingers is a personal mark not easily
falsified or mistaken. This method
has been in use in the past in various
countries, but it is the first time that
it has been introduced into modern
law, and its working will be watched
with no little interest.
It is an interesting fact that the
conventional substitute in Turkish
official documents for the royal or im
perial arms on those of other countries
is the modified form of the representa
tion of the human hand. The toughra,
as it is called, or sign manual, derives
its origin from an incident in Ottoman
history. One of the earlier Sultans,
being unable to write, and having no
seal convenient on the occasion of the
signing of a treaty, placed his hand
on the ink pad and imprinted its mark
on the treaty in token of ratification.

Iron is Plentiful in Porto Rlico.
Much has been said recently about
the mineral resources of Porto Rico
and their commercial value. An of
ficial report to the United States Geo
logical Survey just made by Robert T.
Hill indicates that the most valuable
metallic resource of the island is a
large deposit of magnetic iron in a
hill just north of yTuncos. The ore is
of great purity, containing fully sixty
six per cent. of pure iron. It has
been~estimated that there are 35,000,
000 tons of this ore in sight. On the
most conservative basis the deposit
contains 10,000,000 tons of metallic
The deposit is ten miles distant
from a seaport, and its development
will necessitate the construction of a
railroad. Mr. Hill reports that the
conditions of the deposit could not be
more favorable. The ore is encount
ered in compact masses, easy of ex
traction and covered only by a light
layer of earth. The hill is about 470
feet high and the approach to it from
the seaport of Naguabo is by a two
per cent. grade. Naguabo is said to
be able to accomadate ships of twenty
feet draft.-New York Press.

"Cannot Praise It Enough."
fiss GEETIE DUNKIN,
Franklin, Neb., writes:
"I suffered for some time with pain
ful and irregular menstruation. falling
of the womb and pain in the back. I
tried physicians, but found no relief.
" Iwas at last persuaded to try Lydia
E. ?inkham's Vegetable Compound,
and cannot praise it enough for what
it has done for me. I feel like a new |
person, and would not part with your
medicine. . I have recommended it to
several of my friends."
A thorough study of the sub
ject has proven that crop fail.
ures can be prevented by using
fertilizers containing a large
percentage of Potash ; no
plant can grow without Potash.
We have a little book on the subject of
Potash, written by authorities, that we
would like to send to every farmer, free of
cost, if he will only write and ask for it.
