women who simply by the way they held them
selves appeared several Inches taller and showed
to greater advantage than a companion to whom
nature alone had been far kinder. The next thing,
of course, la clothes; not alone what they are, but
the manner In which they are put on. Every one
knows that some women look dowdy in the most
elaborate, confections from the best French ateliers,
while others show style and grace in cotton gowns
that have beer, made by a home dressmaker. Such
adaptability is generally a natural gift, but It can
also be acquired, and it behooves every woman to
study her personal appearance and how she can
make the best of herself.
"Older women often score in this way over their
younger rivals. We cannot look young, but at
least we may look new, and there is no need of
succumbing- to the dowd'ness which so often over
takes middle age."
Happily nowadays it is no longer the fashion to
conceal poverty as if it were a crime. The genteel
keeping up of appearance:-, which the impoverished
aristocracy used to deem necessary to maintain
their proper position In the world, is quite out of
date in Vanity Fair, and society people with the
frankness that is cr.e of their modern characteris
tics make no attempt whatever to hide their
misfortunes from their friends, nor do they deem'lt
necessary to drop out of their world because they
are impecunious. Neither does their world "drop"
them, as so many people think the rich are apt
to do. If there is any "dropping" it is on the
side of those who have lost their money and be
come in consequence morbid and suspicious. But
what is expected of the poorer members of society
Is a g^or: appearance and cheerful countenance. If
they dress well and are happy they can drive in
their friends' coaches, eat of their dinners and sail
in their yachts as much as ever; but they must
make up' their minds to put bypersensil
aside, and to frankly avow the situation. It is
not or. in far better taste to make no fal.se pre
tences, but it is also better policy. The pride which
pretends is not only vulgar, but often has hurtful
consequences. Not long ago the daughter of a man
who had experienced considerable financial re
verse? went en a visit to some friends, and with
the silly boastfulness of youth talked largely of
the horses and carriages at home which, as it hap
pened we-e only kept by her father for a sale
which' was scheduled for a few week? later. This,
however she did not mention, and the father Of
her friend, who was a large editor, naturally sup
posed that in spi:e of debt Mr. A was still liv
in"- in the same expensive style aa before, and
inconsequence refused his consent to an arrange
ment which would have helped the poor harassed
man out of his difficulties. These things happen
oftener than the members of extravagant families
realize and go to show how foolish it is '•> have
any false pride about one's circumstances.

Regarding the club of which she Is president
Mrs. renewald said to a Tribune reporter yester
day: "The National Science Club for Women is
just what its name implies, and the watchword all
along- the line is 'work.' The society has no so
cial side and many of its members rank among
the most scientific women of the time. It Is af
filiated with no other organizations except its own
auxiliaries. It? object is to unite for improvement
and encouragement all women who are Interested
In the Btady of science and original research. It
is probably the only organization whose distinctive
features are similar to those of the National A.cad
en.y of Sciences."
The club has members in Europe. Spain and
Fnsland. The Agassiz Auxiliary, of Chicago, and
the Waverly Auxiliary, of this city, are branches
of the association.
■ "The Journal of the National Science Club" is its
official organ and comprises original scientific con
tributions by the members.
The various sections of the club comprise eth
nology archeology, ornithology, entomology, leh
thvdouhyta, thallophyta. bryophyta. physical bot
any paleontology, geology, mineralogy, astronomy,

American lavlshnesa Is shcrwn no less In. the
kitchens than in the other parts of tha modern up
to date house. Where the old kitchen was gloomy
and stifling- with the fumes and odora of cooking
and laundering, the modern on© is bright, thor
oughly ventilated and so finished with enamel,
marble and metal that there la no chance for the
absorbing of odors cr moisture.
Such a one is in the home of William C. Whit
ney, at Slxty-elghth-st. and Fifth-aye. It la a
spacious room on the ground floor, and is lighted
by two large windows. The sides and ceiling axe
covered with plain white enamelled tiling and the
floor with a mosaic cement, as are all the pantries
and closets connected with the domestic service
of the house. The servants" dining hall and the
first floor hallway adjoining It and the kitchen are
white tiles, while the upper por
, r - these walls and the ceilings are painted
At each end of the kitchen on the side with the
windows is a solid white porcelain sink. The one
which is used for dish washing is broad and wide
and has a drip board on p? -h vni: The large range
stands against, not in. the walla as in old kitchens.
In front of it if a l^ng. heavy table with a thick,
natural hardwood tor . .'Ovf-r v is an iron rack
ied from the ceiUmr. "anon which are hung
saucepans and utensils that will be used in the
preparation of the coming meal.
p, P . wePn the windows are shelves, on which are
displayed innumerable copper saucepans and
kettles. A large cabinet, inclosing the electric
.us of the house, occupies one side between
r h« doors. At one end of the room is a closet con
taining baking utensils. The servants' hall, a
arge, well furnished room, opens off from this end
of the kitchen. On the opposite side la the cold
. • room. It contains a huge refrigerator, a
porcelain sink, meat block, pastry marble and a
r '-ontaining another large assort
ment of copper utensils, all glowing with pride and
The butler's pantry is on the opposite side of the
hall. Its dressers are of hardwood. This pantry
communicates by dumbwaiter with the large but
ler's or glass pantry which adjcis the dining
room on the floor above. The latter room Is the
consummation of modern skill in household con
venience and beauty. It is lighted by a skylight,
and it, too, is tiled, while the dressers that line the
room are of hardwood. An iron balcony reached
by a winding stairway of iron has glass flooring.
and renders the upper parts of the drossers access
ible. Here are kept the choicest china and glass.
In the centre of the room is a large plate warmer
with a marble top. Running filtered water can bo
obtained at a sink in one corner of the room. A
dumbwaiter runs to the kitchen, as well as to the
pantry below, and both have electric arrangements
that by the pressure of a button drop them from
or raise them to any floor in the house.
The laundry is on the same floor as the kitchen,
and is light and airy. All drying Is done by steam
heat. The hot water for the eight porcelain tubs
1? supplied from the kitchen.
The walls of the kitchens in the new dwelling
and apartment houses are tiled or lined with
marble their entire height, or are wainscoted as
high as means will allow, and finished the rest of
the way like the ceilings, with enamel paint. Dif
ferences of opinion prevail regarding the floors.
While tiles and mosaic are ideal so far as cleanli
ness is concerned, both are hard for the feet of the
servants, and are cold in winter. Rubber rugs are
usually used In places where much standing '.- re
quired, but these do not obviate all the difficulties.
Hardwood floors have been preferred in many of
the finest houses, and these are frequently covered
with linoleum.
In kitchens where brick set ranges are used the
chimney breasts are of enamelled brick and the
lintel of Italian marble, while the hearth is of
mosaic, instead of bluestone.
In many kitchens the solM porcelain sink stands
clear of the wall, thus allowing all sides to be
thoroughly cleaned. Where • there Is sufficient
room the sink is set in the middle of the floor and
Is accessible from all sides. The drip boards of the
sink are of metal bound wood, hinged so that they
will turn back against the wall. When the drip
boards are of marble, a rubber mat Is used to cover
them as a safeguard against breakage of crockery.
The modern range is as great an advance on the
oldtlmer as is the trolley on the old stage coach.
The best ones are no longer built into the wall, and
in the western parts of this country they frequent
ly occupy the middle of the room. They are made
of sheet stf-el and malleable iron, and the flues and
ovens are lined with asbestos. No tiro bricks are
used in them, and a thirl less fuel is required than
in th. old ones. The ovens, which art- large and
roomy, are heated so uniformly that potatoes
placed in each of the corners and the middle will all
hake equally quick. This was impossible with the
old ranges. Th. are made with combination coal
and gas apparatus, so that either may be used
Gas ranges only are employed in many houses, and
do away with all the annoy of fuel, consequent
dust and irregularity of heat. There are water
heater attachments for the hot water boiler, which
work independently of the rest of the range
The dressf-rs in some of the model kitchens have
nldef. shelves and doors of Italian marble the
hinges and fastenings of the doors being of bronze
ana riveted to th marble. The table top* are also
marble, and these acmes of human skill are as
nearly microbe and vermin proof as human agencies
can contrive. Electric lights are so arranged that
every part of the kitchen 13 well lighted
Sumptuous and beautiful as are these latterdav
kitchen contrivances, great improvements are atill
possible, and not until electricity has been rendered
practicable for ..king an i heating will the old
fashioned kitchen, with its fireplace and crane be
eclipsed by a perfect innovation.
Day nurseries in the poor quarters of Washing
ton, D. C, have been established by a league of
colored women. A nominal charge of five cents a
day for each child is made to the mother. Be
tween sixty and seventy children are thus leapt
from the associations of the streets. As many of
the mothers work early and late, the little ones
begin to arrive at 5 o'clock, and the last one Is
frequently left until midnight.

Many Interesting fairy tales have been received
from children all over the country in competition
for the souvenir book offered for the besi "picture
story" on "Th- Princess and the Dragon." pub
lished two weeks ago in the Children's Corner.
The story selected for the souvenir w.is written
by Catherine Lee Carter, twelve years old, of
Wayside N. J. Not only for the story was this
one chosen, but because it was so carefully and
clearly written, correctly spelled and punctuated.

Once upon a time, when witches were comm mi
there lived one who made it her rule tha: sty
would never enchant any one who was unhappy.
Thus she made many happy people miserable. One
day a sister witch came to see her, and was shown
Into a room where sat a horrible dragon with
three heads, ana a beautiful princess. The sister
witch knew that these two were enchanted, but
could not te.ll what they had formerly been.
Now, not far from the witch's dwelling there
lived a prince who was in love with the princess.
but could not Imagine why she had such a great
affe~:ion for a hideous dragon, and so was natu
rally jealous.
One day when they were out in the woods to
gether, with the dragon, the prince made the
princess an offer of marriage for the third :ime.
and when the girl refused it hia rage knew no
bounds. He sprang: forward and killed the dragon
thrust of his sword. Turning to the

his surprise to find that the | ad vanished,
and in her place sat a beautiful nightingale!

Little girls are taking a great dea; of interest
in fishing nowadays, and at the fishing piers at
the summer seashore resorts, or on the banks of
the inland lakes, they try their luck beside the ex
perienced fishermen. These little people find some
thing fascinating in the sport when, as sometimes
happens, they seem to have all the "luck." The

Throughout England, in trees, on rocks and on
the bare ground, birds of all kinds have their
homes, and whether permanent residents or summer
visitors (unless very rare guests) all who build
there may be considered "British."
It is only right to gin with the "king of birds."
and the golden eagle is still a resident cf Britain,
though he lives, as a rule, only in mountainous
parts of Scotland and the Hebrides. The nest is
situated high among almost Inaccessible rocks, and
the two yellowish-brown spotted eggs are aid on
a great mass of sticks, rushes and grass.
Though very much smaller, another fierce bird is
the kestrel, which nests in great numbers .tmont,
the precipices of Dovedale and in Ba?ley Wood,
near Oxford, usually preferring the discarded home
of crow or magpie.
The Cornish cliffs are a special haunt of the
chough, who lays the eggs in a hole of the rock,
while the raven, jackdaw and starling all favor
cliffs, old ruins and stumps oi decayed trees as nest-
Ing places The slrst now almost extinct, is still
to be found round North Scottish cliffs, where il
makes its nest of feathers, heath, etc.. while the
nest of the latter (often in a wall) is very easy to
locate as a fey.- straws stick out to guide the bird
back to its home. The mischievous magpie builds
about twenty feet above the ground, and lines the
nest with mtid and defends it with thorns outside,
leaving a hole for entrance and exit. All will re
member the family of magpies slung between the
college windows in "Tom Brown's Schooldays." The
barn owl as its name implies, builds In barns, old
building and decayed tree stumps, and lays th«
white, chalky ezgs upon a mass of those pellets
which all owls uisgorae: young birds and eggs are
often found together in the nest.
I have only rpace to speak of two fresh water
birds— the kingfisher and heron. The former lays
its eggs in a hole within a bank by the side of a
stream or pond, lining the hol» with flsh bones. I
have read of two kingfishers who made their rough
nest by the aide of a tiny stream or drain in Wilt
shire, where there were certainty no flsh to be
found. Contrary to general opinion, there are atlll
plenty of heronries In England, those in Essex and
Suffolk being as fine .is any in Europe, and perfect
regiments of birds may be seen round the t>tour

tops of high trees. , , '

Although his clothes are torn.

And waited for a groan:
But how he laughed! Do you suppose
He struck bis funny bone?
There's sunshine in each word he speaks.
His laugh is something grand:
Its ripples overrun his cheeks
Like waves on snowy sand.
He laughs the moment he awakes.
