TS STT.K ATTIRE--A LITTLE BRIDESMAID FOR A JENE WEDDING._
PACKARD COLLEGE GIRLS. EOME OP THE GOOD RESULTS OF WOMEN TAKING- A HAND IN THE BATTLE OF LIFE. THE niFFEREN?-? IN* THEIR STAN*T?INO IV BT*f?I mM TWWtTt ?EAIIS AGO ANT> NOW?A TALK with rnoEEPson p.\f*KAiir>. Now that there are forty thousand or more women employed os clerks In New-York offlrea. It la In? teresting to recall the time when a woman In eurh r place waa a curiosity, and, taking It all In all, that time Is not no far distant. Fifteen years ago when a woman respectably born and reared en? tered a business office to earn her living her ac? quaintances reK'irded her cither -with eympathy for the nee?i of the Btep or with surprise because cf her eccentricity. Her father and brother. If ?ha bad them, f? It it somewhat to their discredit that ?he mu?t work. To-day unless possessed of abundant means a girl picks out a vocation for herself ?almost aa soon as she W ves off short frocks and stops platt? ing her hair In a long braid down her back. She must get at Boms port of wage-earning, whether there is real need of it or not. There, might come real need, and then she will be prepared. Hur friends look upon the proceeding aa a matter of course. Public sentiment In euch regard ha? changed, ?'.<1 various reasons aro assigned for it. The erection of better office building? is one, and the ambition of women themselves to take a hand In the battle for existence 1s another. Soma say that It is owing to the Increased surplus of female population, maklnrc self-support on the part of women a necessity. But whatever was the primary cause for this steady Influx of women into the busi? ness world, th?ro have been certain occurrences that gave an Impetus to the tide, and in no small degree influeni?ed Its character. The opening of an efficient business colles-e. to give free tuition to women who desired to take up commercial work was what mny be called a definite "starter" In this direction. This opportunity was offered over twenty years ago. A number of women begun the course, but only two or three had the perseverance to con? tinue it ai d to graduate. At the commencement exercises of the same institution last year more than half of the. entire number of graduates were women, and all of these women found place? ?n business houses within the following six months because of their proficiency and the sterling char? acter of the Institution. "It was not the women I was thinking of at the time so mni'ti us the boaltM ss men," suld thtj president of Packard ?College, la recalling his in? itiatory st.-p "1 knew that there w.-.r?- certain qualities In the womanly character that would bu of infinite um in a i.usines? office If properly ap? plied, l ?!??!.'t suppose i anticipated at the time the brilliant re??ord as bualneaa women that train. InK and opi?ortunity bar? since produced, but i believed that women would be more acceptable In the minor work of the average business office than the heedless. Irresponsible boys tber, generally emnlo) ?4." ?*w< re there many women clerks in New-York then'"' ask? .1 the repoi ti r. "Yes," wax the reply, "there were Home In the departm?'iit stores i'.- cashiers and assistants and a very few were employed as private amanuenses. Th>- typewriter had not ?xttne in then, bul l advo cat' O stenography at the time, and l taught it to the firs! women who responded to my Invitation. "I remembei well the case of the lirai woman ?graduate whom I launched Into the business world. A publish?! sent to me for a clerk, .-?n?l was as? tonish.<i when a young, woman instead of ;i young tn-u answered " i want som? body to writ?? letters an?i l?x?k aft?>r the ofrw.' he told her, "bul I want y,m?' one who could be sailed on at any time to do whatever is Bee Jed to be done.' ?? -1 could do that,' she answered, "l have been thoroughly trained and 1 am energetic." He thook his ? " 'Oh, no; you won't do ai all. Packard must have misunderstood. Vou are u lady. 1 couldn't ??rder you around. I wouldn't feel free t.> do it.' And he seemed to regard ibe matter as settled. "The upshot was ?b?r she Induced him somehow to consent to give her a trial. " 'Hut I won't be able to pay you." he to!?l her. 'Seren d< liars a week i^ all the place Is worth.' " 'Seven <-;<.iia.-s s week I? prln ely,' ?be returned. 1 have never earned -? mucn in..,'.' y as that.' "Soth?- agreemi ::t was made.
