A BRIDE'S GOING AWAY DRESS
STRAIGHT FROST TO STA Y.
Corset* Will Akcays Be Under
Diaphragm, Says Mist White.
"Forever while we live tre are going to put our
corsets en under our diaphragms." said Miss Kllza
beth C. White before tbe Dressmakers' Protective
Association yesterday pomtng. "People, who say
the strairht front and loir bust are going out
(Imply show that they haven't good ser.f-e or that
they don't know iajtUsg about the vray we used
to wear our corsets.
"Thire was a tiir.e. not so very long ago, when
each and every weman put her corset on on top of
her diaphragm, This made her look ■-- '■■ sbe
ha<ir. tar.- diaphragm. It gave her narrow shoul
ders, a r.ped back ar.d distorted bust. Lots of
■wata "*ho had really pretty fir-rr-s didn't even
look respt-table when they put on their corset and
dress. The corset m.vde th»-ra. Instead of th^lr
making the rset.
"ft'hes lUe MM is pet on over ths diaphrapm
on*- always vaata to keep puSlns It down. I never
had any comfort ur.til I learm^l to put my corset
on properly, and If you will lej.rn to do the same
tfcirg for your customers no one will evtr be able
to suit th«a but you, isslen they can find some
other Tvcai^n -who can do the sisin thing."
Al! ti.is was apropos of the corset dexnunstra.tlons
whi'-h M.?s Vh'.te proposes to jrive on Saturday
erd Tuesday evenir.gs at th<: convention head-
Quartcri In the Masonic Tt-mple. Livlnij siodeis
will be ut^d, and an;" member of the corset wear

White w.U show how to wear this much abused
s;arsaei".t co as to make it a.rjsoiut«-ly innocuous
and at the san<e time ta mould the fljjure to the
Chape d^rr.nnded by fashion.
"If put on property,™ said llirs IVhite, "a corset
cannot cause th» slightest injury."
This corst-t talk was preQxnlaary to the lecture
announced for the morning, on the new armhole,
under which head Miss White took up the whole
subject of the fitting of linings.
Most. and. to lact, nearly Bit, dressmakers, she
ud. treated v w<jrr.an s boiy ua t'.ough it were a
damn::., and were eatlsfled if her gown looked well
when the stood raotiunless.
"But the WOBU has to turn and move ln her
gowr..' laid Miss White, "and you ca.n't expect the
garment which is smooth axd unwrir.kled on the
4umi:.. to reniain co on h»-r. We must have wrta

the i.r..r.v; when we are ;r.aklnff it. bo as not to have

Mjjw 'White then explained In detail how she put
* tuck In the shoulder of the lining to mi up the
holic* there and prevent the outside garment from
wrirJti!ng at that point; how save doubled the lining:
at the waist and put a cluster of tucks acroes the

cutting of tbe hack. Il ehould be exactly aa wide

NEW- YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 16, 1904.
OH MAILBIED LIFE.
Its Jars and Troubles Fashioned
Theories and Mutual Obligation.
A prominent case of denial of divorce brought
cut pome shrewd comment and sound advice from
the presiding Supreme Court Justice in a remote
State not long ago. The main complaints were
"cruel and Inhuman treatment" and "incompati
bility of temperament." .
According to the judge's Interpretation of the
evidence, the "cruel and inhuman treatment" com
plained of by the wife 3?<=rr.3 to iiave consisted
mainly cf occasional exhibitions of boortshness on
the part of the husband. On one occasion he was
bored with her piano playing, and attempted sum
m.ir'ly to stop thai annoyance by closing the lid of
the instrument. His wife resisted, and her fingers
were pinched ir. consequence. At another time be
refuse*! to budge from the two chairs he occupied
in front of the window, to enabia his wife to re
move some pet birds which wers hanging outside.
A third specification related to the violent ringing
of the doorbell at night by the husband. Acts like
these were the head and front of the offending.
There may have been evidence enough in the
case, said the judge, to secure a verdict from .-.
Jury of women that the husband had behaved like
"a brute." But then, the judge asked, had tlu
wife's temper and conduct no snare in making him
so. it was very wrong to close the piano on hi»
wife s fingers, but was it quite right to insist on
coxnpelllEv a man to listen to music that he did
not want: Is It wise to make a mans home so
disagreeable that he must either stek quiet and
repose outside of it or resort to force to secure
them Inside? As to the pet bird episode, it would
be Interesting to hear in what kind of tone the
wife asked her husband to move; and before con
demning without reserve that morose and surly
person, it might be only fair to give him some
credit for a dim feeling of regret that the woman
he had courted in days gone by had love to spare
for her birds, but none for him. Again, why should
a wife's nerves be tarred by her husband's ring at
the doorbell, even If it were late at night? There
are women who find more melody in that sound
thun is contained in ail the octaves of their piano
fortes or all the trills of their pel birds.
The- old fashioned theory of mutual obligation In
the murrlatjt' relation Is a good denl lost sight of in
these days, declared the judge. Men ■!!■•■ too apt
to carry their business faces and their business
thoughts home with them, and so bring nothing
but coldness, hardness and reserve to the society
of wives and children On th»- (jth.-r hand, women
are net ready enough to make allowance for the
wear and tear of business life upon tne nerves
and temper of the man who has to bear the brunt
Of the struggle. It Is to a very large extent for
their wive*' ami children's sukes that men are
tempted to overtax their energies, and to mftko
thrro.«elves prematurely old. In the endeavor to
ucquirc wealth or to maintain a certain social
position. There are many thßgs that cloud a
man's brew an«l try his temper about which he
cannot take his wife Into il : confidence. She
would jri>bubly n:>t understaa4 hem if he did. and
the attempt to translate tin 1 troubles into cVflnit-?
speech is to mnny men a more acute pain than
simply to endure them Women may have noticed
the fact that the boiling kettle continues to bubble
for a Little After it has been lifted from the fire.
In the vim-- way the active brain of the hard
work <! professional or business man will, ln s, ■!•■■>
of hlmsi'i'. run on the affairs of his old after he
has corns within the precincts of home, A wise
wife will make allowance for the occasional grviiT
ness whose source she cannot understand, art?
Will make It her business to smooth out the hnrrt
lines of the troubled face, an.l to a!.' the in
fluence of a pl.-asant home to work its gradual
but certain cure.
Of arse, leeper than all faults of heedleasness
or want of heart Is the radical moral err r of for
jretting what the marriage covenant Is. the judge
reminded his htirers. People take In marriage cer
tain duties on themselves, and Mndert;ike to bear
the Infirmities of humanity which each possesses.
Whether "for letter or for worse, for richer or
poorer." is expressly covenanted or not. the condi
tions ire distinctly understood, and married peo;i!-«
ant as obviously bound to accommodate their
tastes and tempers to each other as they are to re
spect the InvlolabllUy of their neighbors property.
They have no right to subject their children. If
there are -hlldren. to th» demoralizing Influences
of a contentious home, or to the shame Inseparable
from a broken marriage boi They have Just as
little right to weaken the tie which holds society
together by treating the marriage vow a.« ■ thing
terminable at the price or the vindictive !mpuls»
of elth-r of the p«rtle» to It. There has been a
great .1. r»l too much talked and puhll-'h^d about
the sentimental side of this |ue*l On thy ••a*-.
in the court of Justice. In all our nodal Ife. Tv«
hay* ha.! too many exposures of the m'->rhM an
atrmy of the minds of vain or vicious r>*-ople who
chafe under the ties of matrimony. It Is about
time that the simple and Imperative dJ?y of mar
ried men and women shouM be ••-'•?»■ upon.
THE REAL LACE CRAZE.

stores of real !ac*t should bring out every scrap
they own at the present time. There is a place for
it on almost every LoatuaM and nothing look*
quite so smart. A little Ingenuity Is required.
however, in r <ler to use the lace without Injury
to It for to cut valuable, lace* Is an enormity that
no right-thinking person would be guilty of. Bome

can be done by skillful plea! and doubling.

SOMETHING ON BOTH SIDES.
•A Daughter" has hit upon a suggestive topic
for discussion, and I am clad to sen that It Is to
form th« objerthre of the next contn. t in the very
interesting Housewives' Exchange. There is a lot
to be said on both sides— for the daughter and for
the mother or parents or brother— but I think most
women will agree with mo In believing that com
mon humanity should Impel a daughter to stay by
her parents, at whatever sacrifice to herself. should
age, poverty or misfortune overtake them.
The fact that In your correspondent's letter
Mary's family was well to do could make no pos
sible difference In Mary's obligation to her 111 and
aging mother. Surely Jlllal duty and respect would
busk* « r tha devotion which "A Daughter^' seems
to tiilnk so superfluous and unnatural.
When on* considers the sacrifices that parents
make, voluntarily and lovingly, for th«»tr children,
girls should not hesitate to make whatever return
iDi'V be demanded of them.
I do net believe, however, that many daughters

NO BREAD FAMINE HERE.
The rise In the price if wheat has naturally had
a direct effect on the bakers, hut as yet they have
not taken any steps toward increasing the price of
H. B. Cushman said yesterday morning: "Flour
In selling at from $6 to Pi sr, a barrel, wholesale.
No one seems to have a large supply on hand, so
the speculation in wheat Is especially Interesting
at present. We are still using last year's wheat
for flour, and when this year's crop comes from the
mill, which will happen soon now. conditions may
change. It is pretty certain, however, that flour
will not be what you can call cheap all winter, for
a good deal of the crop has been damaged."
Mr. Cushman does not predict a bread famine,
however, like some of the bakers in Boston, where
flour l« said to be IS a barrel, with prospects of an
Immediate rise In price.
The price of rolls has been stationary since last
devotion Is sending the only daughter away to col
lege. The time whin a girl Is ready to begin her
higher education, which comes as she la about to
enter young womanhood. Is Just the time that a
mother long* tc have her daughter near her. Be

Then remember th.it hundreds of college girls

In this case the mother, who Is probably beginning
to get along In years, mint tail* up all the little
dnrifK that were daughter's when she was home.
And haven't you over guessed as you looked at ..
friend with a child '■.. college who seemed. Just a
wee bit shabby that sho wanted to get along on
a.i little as possible, si. ice "father" was having ex
tra demand* on his nirse?
Then there is another proof of a mother's un
selfish ness In sending her daughter away to col
lege. I know a woman in a tiny place along the
Massachusetts coast whose daughter has recently
been graduated from one of the leading cottages*
for women. A few months before the beginning c.f
