That is What Annie Jenness-Miller
Says About the Field for
Dress Reform.
The Foremost Advocate is Now
Resting From Her Labors in
Beautiful Evanston.
Whysleal Education Quite as Important
as Mental-A National Institution of
Physical Culture Demanded.
Mrs. Annie Jennese-Miller, the fair ad
Yocate of dress reform whose agitation of
the subject of artistic dress for the last half
dozen years has resulted in a universal in
terest among women, is quietly living in a
pioturesae cottage in Evanston at present,
taking a needed rest from her labors and
analyzing the movement among the women
at Chautauqua in favor of a further re
trenchment in the matter of feminine wear
ing apparel. To a reporter of the Chicago
Evening Post she said: "I have taken no
part in the present discussion of dress re
form for two reasons, the first of which is
because I am in need of the rest I am now
taking, and the second because the field for
dress reform is broad enough to permit
every intelligent woman to evolve some idea
which, in whole or in part, may in time be
of practical value to the world at large. I
am content to rest upon my oars, as it were.
I have, thanks to the intelligence of Am
erican women, planted the seeds of this
reform which is now approaching fruit
age. There are many gifted women enlist
ed in the cause at present, and they will, I
am sure, carry on the good work with a
conseientious regard for the offices I have
performed, and treat the subject with the
broad spirit of liberality it merits. To
benefit womankind is a duty of womankind
in general and not of individuals. My ef
forts in this respect are recognized by the
women who have adopted the reforms I
have advocated, and they are many.
"Dress reform will care for itself, and I
am content to leave it in the hands of
women who can add an idea to it. In the
future I shall devote myself to a greater
field for reform than existed when I first
turned my attention to reforming women's
dress. The care of the body and the thor
ough mental training of women embrace
an opportunity for reform of greater im
port than that relating to dress, because
the latter is contingent upon both physi
cal fitness and intelligent treatment. I
have long believed that the time must
come when the necessity for the physical
education of youth would be reconaized as
quite as important as the mental, and I
have desired to hope more so. Honud bod
ily development can certainly be demon
strated to be of more importance to the
immediate welfare of the individual than
mental culture, espmcially if the latter be
accompanied and limited by physical weak
ness and suffering; indeed, I am convinced
that well-sustained mental strength and
profound mental judgment and justice
must rest upon the solid foundation of
physical health; while the grace of bodily
oulture is cea tailly quite as pleasing as the
attraction of mental culture.
"The remedy li:es in rsientiico physical up
bnildment, and the means for widespread
physical upbuildment do not exist in this
country at present, nor inideed in any other.
It must be created, established and made to
app-al to the practical common sense of the
people for its support. A :.atioual institu
tion of phyaital culture is a demand of our
higher civilization. The time is ripe for it,

and in my judgment the practical setting
forth of the self-evident advantages is all
that is needed to win generous and enthus
instic support to the cause which will make
it possible to establish and maintain a
model and thoroughly equipped institution
for the education of teachers who will find
employment in public schools all over the
land to develop, bodies coincident with
brains by rational and scientific methods.
"For a long time I have believed in the
necessity for such an institution, and my
judgment has been strengthened by discuss
ing the matter with able men and women
whose opinions are decidedly in favor, and
whose substantial contributions to such an
end have in more than one case been prom
"In my lectures next spring, when I shall
again go on the platform, I shall outline a
plan for such a work and set forth the ad
vantages of training at an institution de
voted exclusively to physical culture and
the spread of scientific ideas of life and de
velopment. To erect and furnish a suit
able building, of elassic and noble pro
portions, at the national capital, Wash
ington, to carry this work forward in a
manner worthy of a great nation like our
own, a large fund is necessary. I shall de
vote my best energies for the next five years
to the purpose of raising such a fund and
establishing such an institution, and I ask
the hearty co-operation of all who are in
terested in the development of a better
social status, of a sounder moral tons and a
generally higher and moere comprehensive
bodily education, which will include the
harmonious development of all the material
forces animated and controlled by the men
tal and moral. The main part of my public
lecture work will be in the interest of this
object, and I believe that my efforts will be
generously seconded by the press and the
people of the country.
"This work will be in no sense the work
of personal ambition, and it will know no
limitations of personality, nor will it appeal
to the interests of one class or another of
the whole people. It will not be sectarian,
connected with any 'ilm,' for the benefit of
any section of the country, or any favored
class of the people-it will be in the best
sense an institution for the national
physical education. Located at the capital,
as a moet convenient and appropriate
center, andi one favored by nature end art,
it most partake of the general tone of its
surroundings. Tihe o:ganization will be a
stock company, and the contpol of funds
and general management vested in a board
of trustees whose names will be the
guaranty for success and faithful manage
ment. Its faculty and its lecturers will be
the ablest the world affords, and its aim

"The course of training will include not
only a thorough knowledge of anatomy,
with dissecting, physiology and practical
experiments and the study of the chemistry
of foods in their relatoin to blood and
body building, heredity and other like sub
jects, but the best models of art, and lec
tures with artistic demoustations for the
cultivation of understanding and apprecia
tion of symmetry and proportion, will form
an important part of the course. The
stock company organization upon a large
and equitable basis will afford all localities
certain equal opportunities for securing
scholarshipn advantages. Any section, coin
munity, club, organization, school board
or individul may by the purchase of a lim
ited amount of stock secure the right to
