WOMEN AVoinan'fl place, ns In tho home, recolve3 littlo iccognltlon from tho magu2lnc8 ns compared with tho Interest In her activities nnd tendencies. Of 14 nrtlclcx In tho cur rent magazines, concerned wholly or In pnrt with women, only ono denls with tho woman of tho old regime. Thirteen portray tho woman of today. Two of theao concetti women and tho war. Four talco up special phases of tho modern woman's life, her clubs, her business life, her stylo of dressing, her morals. It Is significant ns Indicating tho serious nnd unabated interest In tlio ab stract discussion of tho woman question, thut hnlf tho articles seven of them are about fomlnism nnd suffrage. rrnurmice of the Past Woman's Increasing activities have mado publicity about her so much n mutter of courso that It Is dimcult for us today to realize tho painfulncss, for her, nf llrst break ing Into that bright whlto light, or how great Is tho (Ustnnce that women have covered, even In tho lust decade. Tho name of Emily Dickinson, u poet of only tho last generation, stands out con spicuously among those of American women of gonluH. Her poetry, published nfter her death, lias a dcllcatoly chiseled beauty, which has won her lasting recognition. Hut her life wns that of a recluse, and sho could never hiook any hint of notoriety. Her niece, Martha Dickinson Hlnnchl, of Am herst, has gathered Into nn nrtlclo (1) some quaint relics of her aunt whimsical notes, virginal fancies, tronchant epigrams. Sho writes of Miss Dickinson: Her lovo for humanity was unfnltorlng. and sho speaks for nil lovers when sho writes, "Twilight touches Amherst with his jollovv glove. Miss mo .sometimes, dear, not on most occasions, but In tho scldoms of tho mind." Sho never showed to her own family what sho wrote. Thoy never dared nsk to see. Her timidity awed their love, and Now Eng land reservo completed tho deadlock. Onco, and only once, m mother published a poem of hois incognito, nnd when she showed It to Aunt Emily In tho durkness of cntlro pri vacy she wns teniflcd for the result of her experiment the little white moth fluttering helplessly, all a-tremblo. rendy to dlo of the experience nnd bo found on the floor not morning a more hint of winged dust. Sho seemed to know the world by Intui tion, but she shrank from Its knowing her; not from any feeling of Impotence, not be cnuso sho wns deprived of anything or at nny disadvantage but from a fierce unrea soning Instinct like thut which sends tho soft, bright-eyed wild things flying from uh in the forest. Woman and War Wo nro sated with the horrois of war In big figures. It Is tho individual story, told barely and simply, that leaves a mist In tho eyes. Will Irwin tells such a story (2): AVhoro nil must suffer, It Is ignoble to In dulge grief publicly. A little salesgirl In n Parisian cigar shop wns engaged; thoy should havo been married In the autumn. Tho war took him away. A communicative American used to chat with Iter au no bought his morning cigar. Ho know her story. "Any news?" ho asked ono morning, and then caught full sight of her faco and stopped. "Non, monsieur, pas do nouvollos," she said, and looked quickly down at her work. Then he noticed for tho first tlmo that sho was sewing a black ribbon on her hat. " 'That Day' in Paris" (3) was the second of August, the day of mobilization, when In ono long, sad day Paris was snipped of her men nnd left a stricken city of weeping women, Estclle LoomlH describes it with a rather fomlnino superlntlveness, hut giving vivid pictures of the desolation nnd grief. Sho had gono to tho Garo de l'Kst, where tho soldiers were entraining: I saw thos6 partings at tho gate, thoso kisses and embraces; I saw tlioso men show their little military books and disappear, many of them forever. It was often the husband who broke down, not the wife; and I didn't miss that woman who clung to tho lips of that man till she had to be pulled away. And I watched that mother, too, crowding hor way back to tho fence to call out. "Charles, Chariest" nnd hand her son his forgotten medicine. And tho lady who pulled oft her ring nnd screamed, tho prosti tute who wept down her paint nnd fainted. Two women, strangers to each other, turned away, both weeping. Ono was a motherly looking old soul, gray; tho other was a smartly dressed Parlslenne. A movement In the crowd a big man elbowing his way in brought them together faco to faco. Tho big man passed by mo. AVhen next I saw them tho girl's arm was around the old lady's waist. Cassandra and the War It is quite a different phase of the war that Dora Marsden presents In a gloomy and fore boding prophecy. Miss Marsden, once promi nent In settlement nnd suffrage work, "ad vanced" out of that stago to founding a very radical weekly, The Freewoman. Current Opinion quotes tho following from a recent article of hers In The Egotist, Another rad ical English weekly (4): The war still the vvar-r-lias brought tho wordy contest about women's rights to an abrupt finish, and only a few sympathetlo words remain to be spoken over the feminist corpse. Every form of self-responsible power de mands not last, but first capable physical self-defense. One might venture to say it would be Impossible to And in these Islands any "advanced" woman who haa not felt herself made into something of a fool by the unequivocal evidence as to the position of women presented by the war, not merely In the countries actually devastated by the war, but hero In England. They find that they may busy themselves with efforts to protect their less "protected" sisters; they may have the honor of being allowed to share in their country's defense by dint of knitting socka; or serve, as one ungallant soldier put it, by providing one of the "hor rors of war" as a Red Cross nurse. In the war area Itself they form part, along with the rest of the property of the spoils of the conquered. One cannot easily refrain from the inference that, though they have weak ened the pull of the pld-womanly omp tence, the "advanced women" have dpne very little In the way of furnishing the nevwary foundations for Ita successor. A Peaceful General General Rosalie Jonas, teader of the suf frage inarchM on Albany and Washington a, couple of years ago, I now turning her fcUcntion to wore saUc .merest Hh ut the Magazines chairman of n, committee to bring our school history toxt books up to date. In an lnltr view (5) sho says; Most of tho histories dismiss woman suf frage with a Bhort paragraph or it footnote. Theso usually say "Tho vote linn been given to women In two sometimes! they Bay three Stales, but thoy havo not ntado as much lis of tho opportunity as thoy might." The Cert jury Company has offered to let me furnish ,v.ii inu iiukcs oi suiirago lacis 10 oo incor porated in an American history It will brintf out In March. In ono history now ucd In the ew Yoik public Bchools, a revised edition published this year, a brief footnote strttM that "women now voto In three States, and tho movement has assumed some force." This when women nro voting In 12 Stales. A history by Professor Muizey, of Cplurrt bin University, covers the suffrago movement in a patronizing paragraph, saylntf that wotnon voto In several States." It devoted half a pago to tho San Francisco earthquake, Sonla Lovlon, writing of "Tho Women's Invasion of tho East" (6), calls attention to the fact that the suffragists nre to turn caat ward from their western campaigns and tri umphs, nnd that next year tiie issue wilt come up for voto In Pennsylvania. New York, New Jorsoy, Massachusetts and Iowa. Sho quotes a lettor Blgned by the Brewers and AA'holesalo Liquor Dealers' Association which was widely circulated In Oregon pre vious to n suffrage election, and which scorns to back up a chargo frequently mado by suf fragists. Tho letter reads In part: It will take 60,000 voleB to defeat woman suffrage. There nro 2000 retailors In Oregon That means that overy retailor must him. self bring In 25 votes election day. Every rotnller can got 25 votes. Bea'dos his em ployes, ho has his grocer, his butcher, his landlord, hln laundryman nnd ovory per son ho does business with. If ovory man In tho business will do this wo will win, Crinoline Crinkles Truo to Us tradition of saying whatever it pleases, Town Topics Sauntercr hns this to say of tendencies in tho fashions (7): Not tho crlnollno, please! AVo have en dured tnoro or less pntlontly tho vagaries in woman s dross, from sheath skirts to trou sers, but wo draw tho lino nt crinoline, tho zoppolln of dress. Tho steady conservatism and admirable courtesy of tho men, whllo their wives nnd daughters and oven tholr mothers nnd grandmothers havo been stripping themselves to tho nkln for public inspection, deserve a bettor reward than tho roturn of tho eugenic oncelnto stylo, of which a frantic poetess wrote: "It tips up behind, it tips up beforo: Can't sit in a scat, can't get through a door." In a dramatic criticism, Francis Hackett gives a scmlphllosophlcal treatise on women nnd morals and asks a pertinent question as to tho relation between relaxing standards of morals off and on tho stago. Ho writes (8) : Thcro was a tlmo In tho Amorlcnn theatre when the dramatist alluded to an "unchaste" woman us a rhetorician alludes to tho behemoth. In France, It wob pleasantly al lowed, women graded anywhere from a faint pink to a scarlet too hot for naked oyes, but in America women wore cither aa Innocent ns snow or as unmcntlonnblo ns lopers. That a woman could "transgress" was ndmtttcd. but sho proporly stood on an island of mo nognmy Biirroundcd by an ocean of dlsaa proval, and that ocean was Infested by every hoi ror of tho deop, serpents, sharks and svvordflsh. beasts to which the male was moro or less immune, but to which the fe male was as carrion to the crow. And now, unashumed on the American Htoge, appears tho open record of a woman who has no moro prejudice nbout chastity ns nuch than a broker has about loanB. In "Tho Song of Songs" tho four walls of as sumptions nbout chastity aro fallon com pletely away.
