True Hero ine The Result In. Illinois Ulrs. Cleve- ' land's Gracefulness The "Anti" Women. A Cleruman's Views. It haa been said that Boston is one of the most clubable cities in the world, and since our women have come to their larger discretion they have followed their brothers in organizing clubs to a surprising extent. The clubs -which they have organized to carry out their ideas of reform and duty and self improve ment are numerous and important, and are pretty contftantly discussed in the daily papers. The New England Wom en's Pres- club is one of the most not able of those and haa dono a great deal to advance women engaged npon the daily press in their work, and in secur ing for them the prestige which is at once a protection to them and an in dorsement of their calling. They have become stronger aa a body on account of their association together, and they have strengthened one another for their daily tasks, while their public meetings have secured to them a cordial recognition in the community. The "Women's Indus trial and Educational union has accom plished a great work in a hundred dif ferent lines and has brought together a large ' number of competent persons whoso impulses and efforts needed wise direction and proper opportunity to be successful. Among the "women who have taken the lead in these club3 are two who have been no much before tho public that they deserve to bo mentioned in this connection. The first of these is Mrs. Julia Ward Howe, who has been foremost in this community in main taining the woman's rank in social and intellectual life. She has brought for many years to her work both social Xrestige and personal power, and al though entitled by length of service to withdraw from tho contest in these days she is still a name to conjure by, and no woman in America is more highly hon ored or appreciated for her public ca reer. Mrs. Ednah D. Cheney is a wom an of distinct personality who has been identified with liberal and radical move ments quite as much as with the cause of woman, but during a long and active career she has always been "true to the kindred points of heaven and home," and although many may not accept her radical convictions all who know of her work for humanity and for the eleva tion of women have only the heartiest praise for her efforts. Probably the woman who was lately taken from us Mrs. Lucy Stone, tho contemporary of these two was more truly a pioneer in the woman's cause than either Mrs. Howe or Mrs. Cheney, and the influence of each of these per sons is felt today far and wide in the organization of women in clubs for the better carrying out of the plans which they have in mind for the advancement of their own sex and of the interests of industrial and social life. It would seem as if women had rushed into these clubs with unusual eagerness. They are springing up everywhere, not only in Boston, but in the country towns. There is hardly a considerable village any where in which the leading women ara not organized in some form of a social club, and the better they are educated the more they incline to this sort of thing. As these clubs now exist, the impression is that they are a helpful agency in concentrating and directing the energies of women in tho best direc tions. Boston Herald. Dress Reform In England, A meeting of the Healthy and Artis tic Dress union, which was founded in London four years ago for the purpose of making dress "less hideous" and more hygienic in its principles, is an other proof of the continued effort wom en are making in the direction of dress reform. All tho members of the union expressed their prefer-nco in a most realistic manner, for there is a choice even in this branch of costuming, and every possible eccentricity of emanci pated dress, from the simplest cycling costume to a brocade gown, was dis played on the forms, their wooden sub stitutes, or spread about the room. The greater proportion of tho women appealed in divided skirts, a few in the jacket and knickerbockers, and others in something they call the "rational dress," which is a species of reform which boasts of a petticoat. Those who went to the meeting on a bicycle took a turn around the room to display their different costumes, and it was generally conceded that the nearer they approach ed the masculine dress the better they were suited to the exercise. One con spicuous figure was a woman clad in a pale green walking suit made with drapery and a short skirt so loose that the wearer had perfect freedom. A gown which was termed artistic was made of brocaded silk, with a yoke and loosely falling skirt. Another costume, which was an original idea of the woman who wore it, resembled a barrister's robe. Sanitary corsets, stockings and petti coats were on exhibition, and also a shoe which has a division to keep the large too in its natural position. Speeches were made on tho subjects of dress and diet and exercise as a means of reducing flesh, but a physician of the sterner sex wisely said that dress reform to be suc cessful must begin with the young who have not felt the iron bars of custom; also that girls should have the same lib erty of running, jumping and playing ball that is given their brothers. It would seem that dress reform of women might be an undertaking exten sive enough to occupy all the time and exhaust tho energy of its advocates, but no with woman's characteristic desire to accomplish something just beyond her reach she musjk agitate the question of ft" THE WHO GAYZTHIffiOVIS THAT THE UNION BRING FLOWERS UPON Sweet messages of mm mm mm miMh (IF F IFF RFYflWn THF SKIF !lp Where north and soutjull conflict past. 2hall meet AGAIN AT peace at last. and love-i n paradise . m.mmmmwmwm7-- w a change in the customary evening dress for men and put them, if she can, into velveteen coats, knee breeches and silk shirts. London Truth. JL True Heroine. Juliet Senshaw, the trained nurse who died in Bellcvue hospital, New York, recently, was n, heroine. A mem ber of tho Society of iving's Daughters, she was the first person to respond to tho call for volunteers to do the nursing at Swinburne island in the cholera panic two years ago. Dr. Jenkins told that the risk was great; that the chances wero she would not live to come back from the island. He laid all the facts before her and mado her see clearly just where she was going just what she was risking. But she listened to him, calmly and without any sign of fear, . and when he had finished she said sue had thought of all that. She said some one must go, she was a nurse, and her duty lay with those helpless and uncared for sufferers. So she went to work at once, and week after week she was in the midst of the plague. She slept only about three hours out of the 24, for not many volunteered, and the pesthouse was full. She understood tho duties of a nurse thoroughly and carried out the instructions of the physicians fearlessly and accurately. The result was that the percentage of mortality in that pest liouse where she worked and where she slept for sho never left the building was lower than had ever been known either here or abroad. The health officer watched her with amazement, and again and again, when he saw that her strength was getting less and her danger thereforo greater, urged her to leave. But she staid on to the end. She in spired the doctors with admiration, the sick peoplo with hope and the other nurses with resolution. Philadelphia Ledger. The Result In Illinois. In Illinois the first election under the new law which permits women to vote for school trustees has been held. The privilege of voting conveys with it the privilege of holding office. It is not sur prising to find a number of women among the successful candidates. In Benton, Ills., these women wero elect ed: Mrs. Jennie P. Reed, Mrs. Imogene Ward and Mrs. Emma Finnigan. In Martinsville, Ills., Mrs. Cornelia Cline McNary has been elected director of schools for three years. At Vandalia, Ills., Mrs. Emma Senneman was elect ed over her competitor, also a woman. Of 603 votes polled, 320 were cast by women. At Evanston, Ills., Mrs. Emma C. Clark, the wife of a Chicago lawyer, was elected. At Oak Park, Mrs. Frances Lackey and Mrs. Edward H. Pilkin were elected. At Fulton, Ills. , the wom an's ticket was elected, Mrs. Effie , S. Hellerstrait and Mrs. Mary Lockhart being the candidatca against two men. In all the candidates, it will be ob served, are married women. The great er number have their portraits pub lished, and two have babies in their arms. The women everywhere took a lively interest in the voting, making house to house canvasses, hiring car riages to carry tho voters and serving hot coffee at the polls. It was not unex pected that women would bring some innovation to the act of voting. The in troduction of the coffeepot to offset the saloon is in keeping with the influence they profess to bring to the exercise of the ballot. Chicago Letter. Mn. Cleveland's Gracefulness. When Mrs. Grover Cleveland was still Miss Folsom and not long out of school, she visited a cousin who was at that time living in a little inland town in New York. Boarding at the same house with herself was a youth, not overbur dened with brains in fact, a good deal of a village butt. This young man came in Miss Folsom's way and was natural ly introduced to her. Some days passed in her stay there, and ho was conspicu ously devoted in attentions that were very good naturedly received. Not very long ago this same fellow went down to Washington on one of the many MIGHT LIVE. m THEIR GRAVES TO WREATHE hope they breathe cheap excursions. Some of his home tormentors thought it would be a good joke to propose that he should call at tho White House.and renew his acquaint ance with the president's wife. He saw nothing ridiculous in the idea and fol lowed it up. Of course Mrs. Cleveland must havo tali en in the whole situation at a glance. She received her caller in the kindest manner, although with per fect dignity. Ho suggested that he should like to meet her husband, and she actually called the president in. Not a look nor word passed between thi;m, but he, too, must have thorough ly understood, for he showed tho guest every attention in tho few minutes that he could give him. As the whole affair turned out, those who proposed the visit were fooled and . not at all the supposi titious victim. Washington Corre spondent. The "Anti" Women. It does not seem to us to be a proper thing to denounce those excellent and intelligent women who are opposed to female suffrage as "traitors to their I sex, ' yet at least two 01 tne leinimne j advocates of an unsexed ballot have I thus denounced the antis in public I speeches. The language is harsh, un ; fair, unwise, and offensive. There can ! be nothing gained by it. It surely in : jures those who use it, while at the ; same time we should suppose that it I must intensify the antagonism of those to whom it is applied. The antis mere ly entertain an opinion different from that of the pros upon a question which is yet under debate, and upon which there ought to be full freedom of judg ment. They are certainly on the con servative side. They entertain the views which have been entertained by nearly all women since the beginning of time. They are apprehensive that evil may come to their sex through the very seri ous political innovation which, is advo cated by the suffragists. They do not desire any change in their relations to the state. There is no reason why they fhould be scolded or maligned or held np to scorn fnr tht. When women en gage in a pnhlio debate upon any sub ject, they ought to set an example of that courtesy wh ich, unhappily, is not always displayed by contentious men. New York Sun. A. Clergyman's Views. In reply to the argument that women were taxed and ought to bo represented, Rev. Isaac Haldcman, a Baptist clergy man of New York, says that woman had been represented on the field of battle, in the construction of government, on the battlefield in the preservation of that government, and by man in legis lation now. The statute bocks were cov ered with evidences of special legisla tion in her behalf. Some of this was to the advantage of woman as against man. In respect to the right of personal property, there was more law for wom an than for man, and any injustice tc woman must affect man. Woman's suf frage, he declared, would evolve a type which even this fin de siecle age can well aJcrd to spare, and would open the gateway for intrigue such as the arena of politics had never dreamed of before. The home, he thought, would be assail ed in its most sacred and permanent foundations. Dissensions and jealousies would be engendered which no legisla tion could repeal. It would lead him to take woman at her own estimate, and as she clamored for her rights allow her to taste for herself the truth of nature's unbending law, the survival of the fit test. - Getting Ilia Discharge. 1 mm -mm m m0m ft K-csHXk p -ft. -Lifa. !
