HERE IS THE LATEST ADVANCE.
I July Florence Itjtio Would Have Cooi
panie of "Women olunteerf..
Lady Florence Dixie finds matter for
an article of considerable length in a
Loudon paper advocating the organiza
tion of a corps of women volunteers.
She begins by saying that the pro
posal has met with many women's ap
proval (?) and then proceeds to outline
her scheme. She advocates the estab
lishment of institutions where would be
"volunteers' could be physically train
ed into good gymnast.! and l a able to
Bwim, ride, run, march, shoot and t u
dure fatigue. Hand in hand with these
subjects should go instructions in cook
ing, nursing, ambulance work and man
ual skill in tailoring and bootn.akf t.g,
a knowledge, however rude, of these
two last named accomplishments being
at times most serviceable and useful.
"I am totally opposed, " com inaes the
paper, "to the formation of a volunteer
corps for women either merely as a
medical one,' a lighting one or an am
bulance one. My idea ot a volunte er
coris of women is one whose members
in time of national need could volun
teer for all and every kind of service
and perform the same efficiently whether
it be fighting, medical work, ambulance
work, nursing or anything else, and the
unity of this volunteer corps should bo
firm and strong knitted by the indissolu
ble tie of esprit tie corps, which would
build it into a powerful organization.
"It should be the great national
school for working class girls and wom
en who could depend upon receiving a
technical education if desired therein.
It should be the national club for wom
en of all classes; it should bo able to
furnish in case of need skilled work
women in every grade; it should have
its branches in every town or outside
every town, and it should have it- great
central institution, its hall of liberty,
"The corps might be known as tho
United Corps of Women Volunteers,
and it could be classified in companies
under different names, certain duties
being apportioned to each. Thes i com
panies could furnish whatever the na
tional need required, trained an 1 dis
ciplined bcdicK of vomeu beinst forth
coming in any emergency to supply the
service sought. "
Before Lady Dixie announces her uni
form she paves the way witu an anath
ema against modern dress, and then
introduces her "neat Norfolk shaped
tunic, reaching to just above the knees;
knie'tt ib.icio rs ai d gaiters to natch,
the gaiters to bo substituted for brown
tanned top boots, lacing up the entire
front to the knee, where much riding
"For head dress I would recommend
a colored cap, Tarn o' Shanter or Carl
ist in shape, a plain round straw hat in
hot weather or helmet if deemed more
suitable. And to harmonize with such
a costume woman's appalling headgear
must be abandoned. No head can be
truly comfortable or neat which is doom
ed to wenr the present day erections and
combinations of false and real hair,
frizzes and fads, all pinned together in
bewildering confusion. "
Having thus annihilated the present
coiffures, a woman is urged "either to
cut her hair short or wear it in the
King Charles fashion adopted by the
cavaliers, or if she prefers to keep it
very long wind it in a neat coil behind
her head. "
Lady Dixie admits that the move
ment is radical, and that "there are
difficulties to bo encountered, sneers and
jeers to be lived clown, satires to be re
futed, converts to be made," but she is
sanguine of ultimate success and con
nects the arrival of the women volun
teers with great national re-forms ami
all the rest of it.

AN AFRICAN PRINCE.
Recalled Troiii an African College to ItulA

would think Thomas a prince at first
glance, but ha admits it himself, mid
there is no r.eed of looking further for
proof. Here is the story he tells:
"My father, King Aruiah, son of Zo
dimah, who once held the supremacy in
the Vei hexarchy, died and left the sov
ereignty of his people to the youngest
son of his first wife, Jas.sa Quey, daugh
ter of the Oolah people and sister of
King Mambruro, the great warrior and
plunderer, before whom the African
tribes trembled, which son is myself,

"After my father's death my uncle,
Ifualusaw, usurped my rights, for at
that time I was young and inexperi
enced. I saw one of my sisters stran
gled, and that, too, with her child. My
uncle and his follow plotters squandered
my father's wealth until tho kingdom
sank from power iato poverty.
"I planned secretly with my relatives
to bring my uncle to account, but while
I was debating what steps to take I met
the Rev. Thomas Halley Roberts of the
Vei people, an African and a graduate
of tho Lincoln university, Chester coun
ty. Pa. Ho advised me to come to Amer

Now it- has happened that Besolow's
people have rebelled against the contin
uance of tho rule of his usurping uncle

sovereign, anel unless the young man is
drawing on his imaginatitm for his facts
he will soesn be ruler of a considerable

it seems, has got frightened, tot), and
joins in tho request for his return, so
Besolow will not have any opposition
from him to fear.
Tho prince says he will probably go
back in August or September and will
make short visies to France, England
and Germany on the way. Ho is a very
good talker for mi African and has lec
tured in Bo.-toti, Springfield and New
York. He excuses his good English on
the plea that he was educaceel in child
