Memoirs of John C. Fremont, with a sketch
of the life of Senator Benton. Bv Jessee

publishers. 257 and 259 State street, Chi
cago, sold only by subscription.
Tbe “Memoirs of Fremont” make very in
teresting reading. Parts of them read like a
romance. The story is told modestly and
well. The country traveled over as It was in
its pristine wildness, inhabited only by the
Indians of the plains, the buffalo and other
wild animals, is graphically described.
Millions of people now occupy this vast scope
of country. The records of Fremont’s Cali
fornia expedition, included in this volume,
will undoubtedly remain permanently as an
important contribution to the history of this
country. These memoirs will go far toward
placing Gen. Fremont in a true light to pos
terity, as a pioneer uniting primitive energy

A Nat ional Press Association Taking:
Shape— Interesting Notes.
New Y'ork, Feb. 19. —I was reading
this morning the constitution of the New
England Woman’s Press Association.
The idea of a National Press Association
for womeu journalists took shape at New
Orleans during tbe winter of the exposi
tion, and branches have been started in a
good number of the States since. This
new England constitution provides that
“any woman who is regularly connected
as a professional writer with any reputa
ble newspaper or magazine, as well as
correspondents for papers outside of New
England who are resident in this section,
shall be eligible for membership.” But
its noticeable feature is the streak of
oonsoience that runs through it and that
seems to pervade almost all organized
work of women of whatever sort. Article
two provides indeed that one “object of
this association shall be to promote ac
quaintance and good fellowship among
newspaper women;” but it lays lar more
stress on the succeeding clauses, “to
elevate the work and the workers; and to
torward by concerted action through the
press such good objects in social, philan
thropic and reformatory lines as may from
time to time presen ttbemselves,” Women
journalists may, for instance, get up a
social dinner together; but they are al
most certain while eatiug it to discuss,
as the newspaper women of Boston are
at present doing, with even more relish
than the good thincs before them, some
project for getting women appointed as
matrons at the police stations, or other
charitable enterprise. It is characteristic
of the women journalists, as of most
other women in the mass, that when they
come together their first idea is work
and still more work. They may some
time appreciate the philosophy of a
good time pure and simple, but mean
time the gospel of effort is not a bad one
to master.
“My souvenir of the coal strike,” said
the mistress of a cozy little flat, as she
noted a glance of curiosity toward the
stiletto that alter the fashion of such
offensive weapons nowadays was thrust
peacefully through the coils of her hair.
“Yes, it is set with black diamonds,
genuine ones,” she went on, as she drop
ped the bauble toward which my eyes
still wandered into my outstretched hand.
“It was my favor at the german one night
last week. It looked then as if we were
never likely to see coal in any larger
lumps, and so the lady of tbe house gave
us everyone a coal jewel, scarfpin for the
men, breastpin, rings and hair ornaments
for the women. Mine, you see, is quite a
coal chip.” It was coal chip indeed,
broken roughly from a lump of anthracite
and set with the care that is usually be
stowed on diamonds of a different color.
Not beautiful decidedly, but quite the
reverse. Its owner will keep the coal
studded stiletto as a meipento of an ex
perience through which the oftener New
York passes the worse for the city.
The earliest bonnets that the French
milliners are beginning to send us as
samples of what we are to expect tue
coming season afford little encourage
ment to the woman who would fain select
her headgear with any reference to the
genuine protection it might and ought to
afford. Horse shoe, pointed had gabled
crowns are still to prevail, and the bon
net bids fair to continue the miniature
toy head-dress that it has been for two
seasons back. It i's of no use to rebel.
Madame returns your look of indignant
inquiry with one of serene composure as
she informs you that shapes any wider of
crown than your two hands put together
m the lorm of a shed roof “are not worn,”
and Madame is right, as usual. They not
only are not worn, they are not in the
market at any price. The folly of fash
ion which builds the crown and piles the
face trimmings up into the air, while
absolutely refusing to protect the head,
is likely to be carried to an even more in
artistic extreme the eoming spring than
in the past.
Last week while Rose Uoghlan was
playing at the Union Square Theatre I
passed a group of people collected about
her likeness in the window of a Broad
way photographer. She was taken as
Peg Woffington, and, in the garb of the
Irish orange girl turned star actress, was
a oharming creature to look upon; so
much so that the knot of gazers absorbed
in the contemplation of thecounterfeltfail
ed to notice the original. For Rose, it was
Rose herself, with the swinging, vigorous
step that is the secret of somuohother
popularity on the stage, was enjoying the
rare February sunshine and had stopped
on the outside of the group her own pic
ture had called together. Nobody recog
nized her, nobody looked at her. She
watched the interested gathering a min
ute and then passed on. If all eyes had
been turned the other way, full on her
laoe, she might have attracted as little
notice. It is seldom, after all, that we
know by daylight the people who amuse
us under the gaslight. The most
popular first violin in the city orchestras
was my vis-a-vis on the horse car this
morning, and not a glance was cast to
ward him.
She, quietly to her next neighbor as she
played indifferently with her roast
squab: “Do you enjoy the war articles in
He, somewhat surprised. “Why there
aren’t any. That’s their strong point ;even
the newsboys cry it on the street, ‘Scrib
ner’s no war articles I’ ”
She, persisting: “But they’re in for’the
longest series of all. They’ve begun with
Csesar and all Gaul is divided into three
quarters, and lhey’ll bring It down to the
present time.”
Meeting Mr. Poultnev Bigelow, the
editor of Outing, the other day, tasked
him H Stevens’ bicycling tour round the
world continued to be, as It has been re
puted, tbe gieatest drawing card of that
magazine- “Well,” said he, “we have to
take an idea sometimes from the news
dealews, whether it agrees with our own
or not; and 1 have noticed that the cur
rent number, as ft is spread out for sale.
Is usually opened either at the frontis
piece or at the piotures in the sparring
articles from instantaneous pboto
graphes of Billy Edmunds and
Arthur Obamoers standing up to each
other.” Such i life, such the popular
ity of tbe the taste
ol a not the reading
public. - . )

“It surprises me,'*- said a woman Who'
has known much of the ins and outs of
literary life in New. .Y’ofk, _ Lrom the
writer’s side as’well as the reli'der’s for a
quarter of a century; “it.sOrpcJaes me to
see what a success women are achieving
In a line in which' they were liaidty ex
pected to make a mark at all; they are Ml
among tbe best judges of manuscript in
tba city. Aflk the head ol any big pub
lishing house, and be is sure to cujllirm
my opinion. Ten chances to one he re
lies himself with Implicit confidence on
the quick judgment anu keen insight ol a
woman reader to whom he turns ever the
embryo book or magazine article lor an
opinion whether It will take with the
public or no. And the woman is seldom
mistaken. Her critical faculty or critical
instinct bring* her to the just conclusion
every time.
“Look at this,” and the bright and shin
ing light of scores of dinners, dances and
teas held up before my eyes the society
oolumn of a morning paper. “Here are
six lunches of the week described In
glowing oolors with lists ol tbe women
r resent and detail* of tbelr gowns. Now,
attended these every one, aud 1 know
that from the standpoint of reallv good so
ciety not one of them was to bo consid
ered a minute in comparison with a sev
enth of which not a line is said. There is
an excellent reason why. The reporter
was not there; and there is plenty of the
brightest and most thoroughly enjoyable
society of New Y'ork which would be ut
terly broken up aud destroyed it he were.
The people whom the hostess prides her
self on gathering about her would stay
away if they did not believe themselves
secure from seeing their names in the
newspaper next day.”
The fanoy for yellow in the dress and Its
accessories still reigns in full lorce along
side that other fancy for red in its deep
est and most vivid tones; aud between
them the two brightest and most pro
nounced of colors make any gathering ol
Yvomen unusually flame tinted and pic
turesque. The liking for yellow extends
to the jewelry worn; and has created this
winter a furore for amber, which is seen
on every occasion, appearing in necklace
and bracelets, in ornaments for the hair
and pins for the flowers on the corsage, in
every possible position, and applied to
every conceivable use.
It is only the gregarious instinct that
induces oue sheep to lollow another in
lumping over a wall that makes such a
sudden flaming out of one color, one
shape or one material all over the city
possible; and it is this very monotony of
dress and conduct among city women in
general that engenders something worse,
that straining alter the eccentric and the
outre, not to keep up with the fashions as
our censors of the other sex put it—we
all do that without any difficulty—but to
get ahead of them, that is responsiole tor
at least as much “nervous prostration”
and general breakdown as a half dozen
other causes combined. Amber will
shortly be “common;” let us, therefore,
diligently rack our brains to think of some
thing else.
Tbe Oaklaud (Cal.) Tribune tells
a tale ol a young woman whose health
had been hurt by too much devotion to
tile painting. Her mother thereupon
offered her a reward of 10c. a scalp lor
squirrel shooting, and she brought in
eighty-five as the fruit of a single week’s
hunt. It was rather hard on the squir
rels, but as a matter of course
productive of rosier cheeks and
brighter eyes than taking human scalps,
sentimentally speaking, in overheated
ballrooms. „
The wedding gown worn by one of the
prettiest brides of the week was of white
and fllinv lace, worn not as is usual
over a satin slip, but over a skirt of
white India silk muslin; the delicate and
diaphanous character of the draperies
being iar better preserved than is ever
the case with the more substantial founda
A dancing dress that appeared at one of
the dinner dances of the past week had a
short lull skirt of a delicate rose-tinted
silk. Draped over this, in simple, natural
lolds and almost entirely veiling it, was
an India silk muslin, cream white and
figured with clusters of forget-me-nots in
pale pink and blue. The pointed bodice
of the muslin was finished with lace
sleeves and rich lace covered the
shoulders, while rose pink revers down
either side of the front renewed in plush
the tint of the silk skirt. A cream white
moire sash was the only additional orna
The new leather silk, “peau de sole,” is
coming every day into more general use
for the corsage of tbe evening dress. It
is firm enough to submit to more exact
cutting than most textures, and is, with
its lack of gloss, less trying than satin to
the average skin.
The reappearance of the white kid glove
is announced at periodic intervals with
flourish of trumpets. But in spite of the
triumphant strains the conquering hero
never comes. Swedish gloves hold their
own, even lor weddings. E. P. H.
Physician* Have Found Out
That a contaminating and foreign element in
the blood, developed by indigestion, is the
cause of rheumatism. This settles upon the
sensitive sub-cutaneous covering of the mus
cles and ligaments of the joints, causing con
stant and shifting pain : aDd aggregating as a
calcareous, cha'ky deposit which produces
stiffness and distortion of the joints. No fact
which experience has demonstrated in regard
to Hostetler’s Stomach Ritters has stronger
evidence to support, than this, namely, that
this medicine of comprehensive uses diet ks
the formidable and atrocious disease, nor Is it
less positively es ablislied that it u preferable
to the poisons often used to arrest it. since the
medicine contains only salutary ingredients.
Ii is also a signal remedy for malarial fevers,
constipation, dyspepsia, kidney and bladder
ailments, debility and other disorders. See
that you get the genuine.
