Rightly mado and rightly worn, there Is nothing
more comfortable or more luxurious looking in the
way of a negligee than a kimono. But the kimono
must have the requisite width of shoulder, the real
long" sleeve, the whole dainty finish of the Jap
anese garment, to be a thing of art. Just how to
give the Inimitable nccesasry touches only the
Japanese themselves know.
A visitor from the Far Eastern country, recently
come- to this part of the world, equipped not only
•with a useful store of English, but with twenty
or more bewitching native costumes, baa been
■ helping a new made friend to evolve one of these.
' attractive garments out of some queer blue and
Vhlte Japanesey material. All Japanese girls are
taught at home bow to sew. by the way. Natur
ally, the little Japanese woman took the lead. It
tnust all be done after a certain order— first the
[two long pieces cut. and sewed together half way
•to form the back, then left open for the front;
•next a slash must be cut on each side where the
seam stops, to form the neck opening — Just SO far;
and a tiny bamboo measuring stick is brought into
'Use for this and other dimensions; then two narrow
Strips must be added to the fronts. Just how far
tip the little measure determines, and sloped off
toward the neck; the sleeves, long and wide, set
r«n square to the shoulders, are imperatively next,
a.nd the folding collar last of all.
• There are certain Inexorable "musts" of finish
igtbout a kimono; the sleeve front corners must be
made square for a child and rounded for a woman.
The front edges of the hem at the skirt's bottom
must be turned in at an angle; the collar must be
■ made to fold by tying three tiny drawstrings.
..When worn the kimono fronts must be crossed
With the left sid» out. the two-inch wide belt, or
•'klmo," must go around the waist twice, and be
tied in a square knot, with short ends, in front, and
"over this the more elaborate girdle, or "obi," with a
CBsbtonHfca bow behind. Because, forsooth, all this
is as it was in the beginning.
To one who has struggled, who has watched
-erne's maid struggle, to pack a summer wardrobe
Into even capacious trunks, there is something
most appealing about a kimono wardrobe and Is.
email space it occupies. Another "must." Ki
monos must always be folded In one way, which
produces a compact, flat result, about the size and
shape of a linen sheet fresh folded from the laun
dry, and a dozen or more kimonos, in flat piles,
jequire amazingly little space.
And the co«*t of these unique garments? In
Japan a charming silk kimono, silk lined and
beautifully made, costs live or six yen, which
• equals $2 50 or $3 of our money, Other kimonos. In
linen, silk and crepe, range in price from II to 14
or 15. cx#pe being usually the most expensive.
Although the Japanese visitor dresses In conven
tional American costume by day, she '.s only too
glad to appear at the evening dinner In native
costume, as her hostess urges. "It is so much
more com-f<srtable." the dark eyed guest answers
.In her childlike voice. Her outside kimono is
oftenest soft gray or dull blue striped silk, or pale
green crCpe, on* and all lined with ■ licaU toned
eilk; but underneath this rather sober outer gar
ment are worn two, three or four silk or crepe ki
monoß, in exquisitely rich colors. "We are proud
to have very beautiful our kimonos that do not
show* " the soft voice explains, and indeed they do
not show except for the bits of color which their
ample sleeves reveal at the wrists. To the prac
tical color and fabric loving American, all this
hidden beauty seems an arrant waste.
The dainty little foreigner is in her finest wh'-n
She wears a delicate pearl gray .-Ilk outer kimono
'•with her family's crest inconspicuously woven in
■white at neck and wrists; a pale heliotrope peck
cloth or "haneri" lust showing, a sumptuous pur
ple silk obi around her waist, an.l .lust a sugges
tion of pale green and of white silk kimonos worn
underneath the gray. In voice, manner and move
ments she la gentle and winning; her little hands
and shapely wrists would be models for an artist;
the is daintiness Itself.

Americans were arraigned on a charge of foster
ing civic ugliness at a recent meeting of the Brook
lyn Woman's Club. Miss Both-Hendrlksoß, a speak
er of the occasion, charged the United States with
a spirit of overcomrmTciallsm which neglects to
supervise t:- relative height of buildings, uses
ugly electric light supports, and rushes the trolley
and elevated road Irrespective of locality. "A
nation." she said, "stamps Its character more by
its streets public places and squares than by the
Interior of it.- homes. We are far behind European
clUes In realizing this fact. We step constantly
from beautiful homes Into slovenly, ugly streets.

A novel brnn. ■ library has been established in

to a shady spot In the environs, near a large mill.
The workmen pto;> on their w.iy home on the ap
pointed .lays to Ket th.ir boolu or leave them.
The idea was suggested by an enthusiastic young
woman on the library force, who induced a fellow
worker to help hrr. Gaining permission from the
librarian, they took a small basket of books one
afternoon and left the car at an inviting place,
whfH they spread their wares. The workmen,
with masculine curiosity, stopped to find out what
it meant, and it was explained that they could take
the !)..r,ks If they .signed the cards that would make
them liable If any were destroyeO.
The patronage grew so that it became necessary
to use a clothes basket, which the library Janitor
deposits on the platform of a car. from which the
lor lifts It when the appointed place. 1b
reached. It Is thought that It will soon be neces
sary 10 open a small branch library In that sec
tion, as the two young women find the demand
greater than they can supply.
A person of inquiring mind has Investigated the
subject of '•marriages as the result of co-educa
tion," and finds that President Jordan of Inland
Stanford I'nlversity was a Cornell man and mar
ried a Cornell woman, while se\era! of the faculty
met their wives in co-edueatlonal colleges. Among
the graduates of the university twenty-five mar
riage* were easily found that resulted from college
association, all of which are said to be exception
ally happy.
An employment for young women that has not
yet been exploited Is that of the visiting nurse.
This novel lde;i was the result of a chance meeting
of several matrons In B suburban town a few duys
One of the number replied, when reproached by
her hostess for the long Intervals between her calls,
that she could not leave her little boy alone with
her one servant. "The only time that l fan get
away Is occasionally on Friday afternoon." she

This plaint led to a comparison of experiences In
that direction. A second caller bad three children
und only one servant, SO that her case was even
less hopeful, c-id a third said:
"1 have had nur.se k!Hs and nurse g;r!s, and they
never know enougch '■> relieve me of the responsibil
ity of my baby. They seem to take up this -*ork
. have ;m Idea they do not need to
know anything In order to do It."
A happy thOUgM came to one woman, i.h they
thus compared grievances, "Why <an we not get
a nurse on the co-operative plan?" she esked. "I
mean an educated young woman of refined mai ners,
so thai she would be a safe and desirable com
panion for the children. If we could find such a
person who would come one day every week, and,
when needed, at other times. It would relieve us of
many embarrassments.
"1 )f course, we should hrive to pay her decent
wages We have tv give an ordinary ncrub woman
Jl 25 a day, so w-» could hardly expert such a
woman as we want to come for It ss than $1 SO. For
this she might come from 9 a. m. to 6 p. in.
"If we wished to have her services :n the even

come at H o'clock and ptay as long ac necessary,
perhaps for .Vi cents. She could easily find enough
to engage her regularly, and so make the work

AH present agreed that the suggestion was an
Inspiration, and immediately a "C N. Club" was
organized. the initials meaning "Co-operative
NTursx ." They succeeded In finding a young woman
who had studied kindergarten methods a iittle. but
had not been successful In starting a school In the
town, which already had a popular one.
Thus far the plan is well established, and the
members of the club are convinced that the prob

The number of women graduates from Institu
tions of pharmaceutical Instruction has more than
doubled in the last few years. Dr. Mary Putnam
Jacob! led the way. back In IKB. For thirty years
there was not another woman graduate from her
alma mater, a New-York institution. Within the
last thirteen years this same institution has grad
uated thirty women, most of them in recent
classes. This would indicate a widening of the
field In this profession or business for women.
There are to-day twenty women conducting drug
stores of their own in Manhattan, and more, both
In numbers and proportion, In the Other boroughs
of New-York. Moreover, the number Is Increasing
every year.
These women are Invariably those who have had
fathers, husbands, brothers or other male rela
tives who were proprietors of pharmacies. There
is not a record of a licensed woman pharmacist
of whom this Is not true. The reason Is that to
secure a license from the Board of Pharmacy It Is
necessary to have had four year*' apprenticeship,
and thu« far no woman has ever been received as
an apprentice In a pharmacy except by a relative.
"I would just as soon take a girl as a boy to
learn the business," said a woman druggist. "My
business Is small, and there isn't anything about
it that I don't do myself occasionally. And I would
lust as soon request her to do anything that 1 do
myself But It Is different with a man. He
doesn't like to tell a girl to go and clean the
bottles or wash up the graduates and mortars, or
Bend her on all sorts of errands. 80. not feeling
like, using her as hard as be would a boy. he
doesn't want her around at all. In a drug store
there U lifting to be done, and ladders to be
climbed A man doesn't care to sit still and see a
woman 'doing these things, a.id yet that's what ha
v ants a clerk for. So h«r sex closes the field to
her unless she has a male relative In the business.
Some of the big drug stores employ women, but
they are cashiers or saleswomen, not graduates in
pharmacy." .
There Is one woman pharmacist who has con
ducted a pharmacy alone, excepting for a boy. for
the last fcur years. It is on a quiet residence
street but out of It she has supported herself and
her child, and paid a debt of several thousand dol
lars. When her husband died, leaving her with a
baby a store and a debt more than equal to the
value of the latter, she hired a clerk, then got a
coach and In six months was able to pass the ex
amination of the State Board of Pharmacy; her
previous work In the store served In lieu of ap
prenticeship. As soon as she had her certificate
she was able to discharge the clerk, the law re
quiring a licensed pharmacist to be in charge.
There Is a woman on the upper West Side who ha»
two stores, and who is slowly but surely acquiring
a comfortable competence. There are a mother
and daughter who conduct their own store, and are
well known in the pharmaceutical world. Women
pharmacists are multiplying in all . the smaller
town*. ■ ■•. .
"The sturdiest women cf the world are protably
the -women of Bolivia." said Louts B. Jennings
>esterday. who, with a party of young: men. re
cently returned from a visit to that country. "The
people of Bolivia are of necessity mainly vege
tarian In their diet, for beef is scarce, and conse
quently very expensive. In fact, the beef to be had
there Is not good, for the country Is mountainous
and all of the cattle develop hard muscles. This Is
especially true of the sheep, which are 'trained
athletes.' The mutton has the consistency of rub
ber, and Is as tough as leather. Northerners who
are In the habit of depending on meat find no
satisfaction in steaks, chops and roasts In Bolivia.
We fared well without meat after futile efforts to
eat It. The only part of the beef which was at all
possible was the tenderloin, and even that was not
so palatable as the fruits anil vegetables.
"Delicious fruits at low prices abound in the
markets of Bolivia. The breakfasts consists of
fruit, and plenty of It. We had bananas, prickly
pears, or tunas, which are the best of the native
fruits, and of which one can buy ten, for a cent;
peaches, grapes, luscious strawberries, fresh ftps,
fragrant pineapples, alligator pears, chlrtmoyas,
pepinos and star apples.
"Chlrimoyas have a soft, sweet pulp and largo
black seeds, and are enclosed In a thick skin. They
are broken In halves and eaten with a spoon.
PeplnOß grow on palm trees, and look like cucum
bers on the outside, but inside are much like musk
melons, with thick, very sweet pulp. These must
be cut first to let the milky Juice out. They are
then eaten like a. cantaloupe. The star apple Is a
fine, fruit. It is beautiful to look at about th««U»
of an apple, and has a smooth and shining skin,
graduating in color from a light purple at on* end
to a dark shade at the other. hen the thick.
leathery skin Is broken open the centre is found to
be pure white, the pulp becoming darker toward
the outer skin until It is a deep purple next to it.
The pulp Is soft and milky. _„.»

I awoke the next morning and could see out In
the street I was just wild. I had not seen any
one walking in the street in twelve years, and now
I lie here and watch the good men going to their
work and the little children going to school, and I
lust say over and over. "God bless the dear ladles
who did it all.' " It was found that the daughter
was badly In need of glasses, and an oculist has

At the first public meeting of the Israelite Alli
ance of America, held yesterday at the Temple Ro
doph Sholom. Slxty-third-st. aiid Lexmßton-ave.,
resolutions were adopted approving the passage of
the resolution of Congressman Henry M. Ooldfogle
by the House of Representatives for an inquiry Into
the exclusion of American Hebrews from Russia
and urging the government to insist that Russia
shall cease such discrimination and observe the
Treaty of 1832.
Joseph J. Corn presided. Those who consented to
the. use of their names as vice-presidents were
President Nicholas Murray Butler of Columbia I'nl
verslty. Chancellor H. M. MacCracken of New-
York I'nlverslty. Borough President Cantor. Con
troller Grout. ex-Btcretarles John G. Carlisle and
Charles S. Falrchtld. ex-Mayors Smith Ely and.
Ahrnm S. Hewitt. Justices Morgan J. O'Brien and
Samuel Greenbaum. Judge Joseph E. Newburger
and Justice Julius Mayer, the Rev. Prs. Char'.es H.
Parkuurst. William S. Rainsford and Robert S.
Mac Arthur, Mrs. Julia Ward Howe and Edwin
Mr. Corn said that the Israelite Alliance of Amer
ica was a federation of societies of Hebrew men
and women and the object was to protect against
oppression and persecution, the motto being equal
opportunities for all and special privileges for none.
It sought to throw the light of publicity on racial
discriminations. Mr. Corn said that It was not
only a wrong to American Hebrews, but an humil
iation to the whole nation that American pass
ports were dishonored on the borders of Russia
because the bearers happened to be Hebrews.
Justice. QieUßWailWl said it was Impossible for an
American to hesitate for a moment as to the jus
tice of the resolution Introduced by Representative
OoldfOgle, and that he had noted with satisfaction
that the resolution had been adopted without di
vision. It was perfectly proper, he declared, that
this country should raise a protest against Russia's
unjust and intolerable discrimination against a man
because he. was a Jew. He hoped the alliance
would spread throughout the world and arouse
such a tremendous agitation against all injustice
and oppression that even the Czar of Russia would
heed it.
Nisslm Behar. who is enlisting men and women
of influence in the movement, was warmly ap
plauded when he came forward and told Of the
progress of the alliance. He said In part:
I do not think that you are acquainted with the
moral power of this country. America .con
sidered some years ago as a nation devoted to af
fairs of commerce, but since the last war. when
this country gave the blow of grace to Spain, the
country which so cruelly oppressed our for.^at
the foreign nations have recognised this country
as a great power and as destined to become the
greatest power. Th* history of this nation has
been different from that of all others, for all its
wars have been sacred wars— wars of Independence,
and this gives America, a moral power which no
other nation possesses. / •
Fifteen yeafV ago this country could look at op
pression abroad and make wishes, but it could not
achieve practical results. Sow it can wield a tre
mendous moral power over the other nations, and
when the sentiment of this nation I* ar °" o^
against discrimination and oppression abroad those
who now seek to deprive the Jew of his rights will
be forced to give heed. This is the work of the
alliance; but not alone for the Jew do we work, but
for all persecuted races.
The Rev. Thomas R. Slicer said:
We have a right to say to the Czar that America
puts no discount on the Jew; that the Jew J s nOl
a burden: that the Jew provides for the poor: that
he is a preserver of order, with no taint of anar< n>
in his mind: an example of filial affection and a
creator of wealth, and we have a right «»>»■£>
that he shall be treated as any other American
when he goes to Russia. But I don't understand
•why the Jew wants to go to Russia.
Congressman Goldfoffle entered as Dr. Wear end
ed his address and was enthusiastically received.
He declared that this was not a Jewish question,
but an American question-the maintenance of the
rights tof American citizenship throughout the
world He told of the action of Russia In refusing.

permit an eminent American rabbi to enter «"»•»»■

Cornelius Daly, the proprietor of the Thoenix
House, at Osslnlng, has been treated for cancer by
the X ray method, and his physicians believe that
he has been permanently cured. Mr. Daly had had
cancers removed several times, and at last decided
to try the X ray. He was rapidly failing in
strength when he was first treated by this method.
Last week he was discharged, after taking thirty
eight treatments.
The results of th • x ray treatment for cancer
have been encouraging In many cities where doc
tors have made a specialty of using the X ray.
The success has beer, so m.irk>i that it is being
adopted by nearly all of the hospitals as a regular
course of treatment. Almost every hospital in this
city has a number of patient* for cancer under the
X ray treatment, the Memorial Hospital havine
treated twelve, with good results.

Omaha. May 25 (Special). — "Mogy." the Western
"King of the Newsies." has he^n Invited by the
head of the Smelter Trurt. Gay C. Barton, to go
to New-York at his (Mr. Barton's) expense, fa get
pointers on how to manage a newsboys' home. He
will start in a few days. "Mogy" has established
a home for the little waifs who sell papers b»

society has taken hold with a wl)!. The |ielioa«

"Mogy" B«rnsteln Is probably the best known
newsboy in the West. The newsboys of Chicago
"Western "King of the Newsies.**
know "Mogy"" by right, and he is recognised v
soon as he appears in San Francisco's streets.
Dsamt knows him. and Kansas City and St. Louis
are familiar with him. And after twenty years of
paper selling "Mogy" has kept the word he pledged
to himself when a barefooted boy of seven (sellmg
papers even at that age), the promise some Oay
to found a home whir- the newsboys would *>«
The- home at present consists of a large Store
room, subdivided into other rooms, with steam
heat, baths, cots, a fully equipped gymnasium,
recreation rooms and a restaurant. The situation
Is in the heart of the business district and within
easy reach of the boys when oft duty. After the
last "uxtra" has been sold the boys congregate
there, where they have games and enjoy them
selves, a night school is soon to be added, tsaea
ers from the public schools giving thetr services.
A company has offered to put In 150 small cash
boxes, one for each boy, and a savings bank de
partment will be operated.
"Mogy" himself is ore of the unique characters
of the city. Formerly he was a sport and was
at the ringside at every fight of not* throughout
the country, but his reformation was complete
after the Carson City Corbett-Fitzsimmons light.
when "Moiry" was on the wrong side of the fence
and came near having to walk home, about two
thousand miles.
Two years ago. when it was announced that
"Mogy" was to wed m Kansas City, manager*
of half a dozen railroads sent him Invitations to
take his wedding trip over their lines. Telegrams
and presents by the hundred were poured m en
him. but he came back to Omaha; and if there is
any one pet sos who stands nearer to the. hoe Ms
of the newsboys than "Stogy." it is "Mogy's" wife.
Too busy to receive * college education himself.
"Mogy" has been the direct means of four young
men taking courses in the universities of the
country. and two are now receiving educations at
his expense — on? in a Cincinnati medical college
and another in a California university. But
"Mogy" has managed to pick un a good educa
tion, and. together with his natural shrewdness, Is
a ■:<•< business man.
He i* connected with several business Institu
tions, and owns and rates four ' shin tag"
stands, each employing from etght to twelve boot
bteeka, in different "parts of the city.
•'Mogy" has led several strikes against Chicago
and St. Louis papers, ami has Invariably won the
tattle for the small 'ooys whom he represents.
Formerly, whin not s.-llirs papers, the "newsies"
would congregate in the rear of newspaper office*,
shoot craps, swear an«l tight, but since the estab
lishment of tho home it is iliffiVult to find a boy of
this class in the streets except 1:1 "business" hours.
But if on-» takM ;i look down into "Mogy's'* place
h-.- will rind mor* than a hundred youngsters hav
ing a good time, and without cost to themselves.
After hi- returns from his tour cf inspection »n
the F.ast, "MoKy" intends to put Into practice any
ideas which may seem good to him, in the aows
