No. 14 Lumber Exchange-Fifth St. Side Woman's World DOCTOR OF BIRDS Buffalo Young Woman Sets Broken Wings and Legs. PATIENTS ARE EASY TO MANAGE Her Services Are in Demand Throughout the Country, and Sue Travels Everywhere. With no medical degree, with no con nection with any hospital, college or in stitution of any kind, Miss Virginia Pope, of Buffalo, is, nevertheless, the best-loved and, in her particular department, the most famous physician in the country. Pet birds form the entire clientele of this remarkable specialist. So far as is known, there is no ailment from which a bird can suffer, from a rob in's nervous prostration to bronchitis in a nightingale, which Miss Pope is not fully equipped tovcope with. Ordinarily, however, her skill is chiefly called into play in the case of caged birds, whose illness frequently distress their owners to such a degree that they summon Miss Pope the entire length of the continent to treat them. Especially do the residents of Buffalo rely upon this kind-hearted doctor's skill. If the Buffalo canary de clines food and mopes in its cage, Miss Pope is called in. One professional glance tells her whether the canary has indiges tion or a broken heart, end she treats it accordingly. It is in critical cases, however, that Miss Pope has gained her fame. Actual physical injuries, such as wounds and broken limbs, resulting in fevers and other complications, which ere ordinarily, when birds are the patients, dismissed as hopeless cases, she is an adept at curing. Her specialty is surgery, and it is in the repairing of broken bones that Miss Pope has built the basis of her most unusual reputation. Bird doctoring was not, in Miss Pope's case, deliberately chosen as a career. With a great fondness for birds, but with only an amateurish knowledge of anatomy and medicine, she once undertook to treat one of her own pets. She succeeded so well that she then constituted herself the regular physician of the five or six feath ered creatures that she happened to own. Between times, her enthusiasm led her to make a special study of bird structure and of bird diseases, a knowledge which her friends were not slow in calling into requisition. In a year or two. all Buffalo knew that Miss Pope could mend a canary's broken ankle a3 easily as a regular surgeon could minister to man. In this way her pursuit developed into a profession, and in the past few years her success has become a matter of national interest. She is ready at any instant to start to any corner of the country where the owner of a suffer ing bird may call her. As she is known and in demand from the Great Lakes to the gulf, and from New York to San Fran- j!^\ >•* ""V - Established 1882. On Thursday this store will be closed at noon.

Miss Pope does not hesitate to recom mend her profession as an eminently suit able one for any woman. "There's that much-talked-of maternal instinct, you know, in all of us," she laughed, "that makes a woman particu larly sensitive to the sufferings of such frail little creatures as the majority of caged birds. Doubtless you have seen country women rescue a maimed or ailing chicken and keep it behind the kitchen stove for weeks, watching and feeding and dosing it according to some instinctive method. Now, the chicken usually gets well and the woman has really enjoyed tending it. So my work is simply an ex tension of this practice. I'm not often called to tend chickens, of course, because chickens are, I am afraid, not considered worth the price of a doctor's fee, but there are all manner of fancy poultry that demand my services in the course of a year. "The chief requisite for bird doctoring is, I should say, the delicacy of touch that every surgeon has to acquire sooner or later. At first it takes the most extra ordinary patience to operate on such tiny bones and muscles in such tiny bodies, but after a while the delicate fussiness be comes a pleasure rather than a trial. I have handled so many sick birds that easy cases do not interest me much now, except in so far as I am glad to relieve the suf fering of the bird. The more difficult a case Is the better I enjoy It. "Are they difficult to manage as pa tients? I do not find them so, as a rule, although now and then 1 come across an obstinate old parrot that I have to take firm meaures with. But of course in al most every operation we use anaesthetics precisely as in the case of human beings, and the only difficulty consists in soothing the sick bird before and after the treat ment. I have learned by long experi ence just what sooths and what disturbs them, and of covffse a sick bird is far more easily soothed than a well one. "And though'it may sound fantastic, I really believe most of my little patients realize that I am trying to relieve them, and that they make it as easy for me as they can. I have thought I detected signs of real affection and gratitude in a con valescent bird. They are curiously inter esting little beings and far more intelli gent than is generally supposed. "No, I do not find my work a great strain. There-is nothing of the exhaus tion of a sick-room, you know, or any all-night and all-day cases or any of the most trying features of the physician's life. And as I am taken out of doors so much I really think it is beneficial rather than otherwise." DELICIOUS DRINKS. PSneapple juice drained from the fruit and mixed with currant, lemon, blackberry or raspberry juice makes a delicious drink. A few wedges left to float in the lemonade bowl Improves the flavor of that beverage. Nothing else on a hot summer afternoon will give the guests so much real comfort as a big bowl of delicious lemonade placed in convenient access to the drawing-room or veranda. A oone of sherbert towering from the center of the bowl adds to its sightliness and flavor. Mrs. Charles Smith of Jimes, Ohio, writes: I have used every remedy for sick headache I could hear of for the past fifteen years, but Carter's Little Liver Pills did me more good than all the rest. ■- f Tiff* *^H B£,> *^^^^^^^^^H For full-dress occasions, the accompanying model Is recommeuded.

A SIXTEEN-YEAR-OLD "DRUMMER" Pretty Little Myrtle Brice of Omaha Leaves the Box Factory and Accepts a Position as a Commercial Traveler —Skipping From Town to Town Selling Soap, She Earns $90 per Month. Correspondence of The Journal. Omaha, Neb., Sept. 17.—"How do I like being a drummer? Well, I've only been on the road three months, but I can say this much —I wouldn't go back to that old box factory again if they'd give me a half in-^ terest in the concern." So said prett,y little Myrtle Bruce, as she alighted from a Pullman car a few days ago, to spend a week with her parents. About a year ago Miss Bruce was grad uated from the public schools of Omaha. Her parents wanced her to go to the high school, but Myrtle said no—she wanted to branch out and make her own spending money. "We can't afford to give you a col lege education," said the father, "but we'd like you to put in four years in the high school —that will give you a fairly good education." .When Myrtle put her pretty little foot down and said, "No high aDhool in mine," an effort was made to secure a position for her in an office. As she was not a typewriter and did not understand stenography, she was unable to secure the position sought. She was on the point of giving up and entering the high school, when she was offered a position in a box factory, at a salary of $3 per week. "Not much of a salary," she argued, "but it's better than wasting four years over Latin, Greek, French and a lot of other stuff which will never benefit me when I get through with it." After working six months, Myrtle was given an increase in salary—only 50 cents a week, but better than nothing, she said. The Bruces kept boarders—had to do it to make both ends meet. One day a gentle man applied for and was given the best room in the house. "How would you like to travel for our company?" he said to Myrtle, after being in the house a few days. "First rate," replied Miss Bruce, "that is, if there's more money in it than what I am getting at he factory." The gentleman represented a company selling soap. He wanted a salesman to cover lowa. Miss Bruce was offered the position on trial. "I'll take it," she said, after giving the proposition consideration. "If I don't FLOWERS AND RIBBONS Fall and Winter Hats Will Be Elab- orately Trimmed. The list of fashionable trimmings for the coming season includes flowers, al though at present it would seem as though the choice Tvould be restricted to roses made of satin, velvet, or the two com bined, according to the August Millinery- Trade Review. Very pale natural tints are favored, and also dark shaded colors ot all kinds to match different materials and felts. However, flowers will be more used to trim the under sides of hats than the outer, where they are generally mixed with green velvet or satin.leaves. Good use will be made of ribbons, both for the autumn and winter seasons. The noveilties in this line consist in exquisite ly soft faconi ribbons, mostly glace, and with an extremely brilliant finish, in wrap printed ribbons also with glace effects, in glace-striped ribbons, and in faconi ribbons of a dull texture covered with various kinds of fancy tulle, the two adhering together merely at the border, which is woven on the double tissue. Mod erately wide widths are most in demand. Much also will be done in galons. There are woven galons with small floral pat terns in delicate pompadour shades; loose ly woven galons, or, rather, 'braids woven of hair burnished in iridescent shades by a new process. Combinations with crim son as a ground for other tints are to be seen in these iridescent colorings, but green of a deep metallic tone' is often the prevailing color, with glints of golden yellow, etc. Hair webbing similarly tinted ,1s made up in various forms, such as wings, bows, and 'bordered with steel spangles burnished in the same way, which will principally be used for trim ming theater hats, as will be the galons made entirely o*f clustered spangles of burnished steel. For trimming black hats there are galone of black spangles, to which a new form is given—that of a tiny heart. Burnished effects are also to 'be met with in some of the fancy orna ments, buckles, cabochons, and the like, the foundations in this case being* gilt metal, or steel with applications of gilt cha&te work. WINDOW GARDENS A FAD. One of the fads of the fashionables has just been told me, and it is the last v>p should have ascribed to Parisian women. It Is amateur gardening on the miniature scale of the window ledge. Many fashionable dames have pet window gardens of their own, in i which they grow rare flowers. The garden | ing tools are made of expensive materials, silver and bronze, and are engraved with the owner's initials or coat of arms. Jeweled gardening scissors are said to cost as much as J5, and silver watering pots, with initials in gold, cost the same. Whether the fad is as ahort-lived as expensive remains to be I seen. It is certainly prettier and more seu ! sible than are moat so-called Jada THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL. like it, I guess I can go back to the fac tory any time." Armed with a sample case and a valise, she took the train a few days later and started out to "cover lowa." She returned to Omaha last week, to spend a few days with her parents. "Since I've been on the road I've learned one thing—ihere's lots of competition in the soap business. No more, perhaps, than in any other business, but somehow I seemed to meet a soap salesman or two in every town I visited," she said, in speaking of her experience as a "drum mer." "Of course, I was green at the business when I left Omaha three months ago, but I made up my mind to succeed, and I think I can truthfully say that I've had my full share of the trade. Nearly all the merchants I visited in the different towns had soap to sell and soap to give away, and it wasn't the easiest thing in the world to get them to give me an or der. Some no doubt gave me a compli mentary order because i v*a« a girl, while others were soon convinced that I had a better article than anything they had on their shelves and it meant money for them to handle it. "How as I doing? Well, I started out on a salary of $8 per week, my expenses paid by the company, and a commisssion on all orders over a cercain amount. I just made my salary the first week; the second week I receievd $10.50, but during the past month I managed, without any special effort, to run my salary up to $90, including my commission, of course. I generally spend a day in the small towns and two or three days in such places as Sioux City, Cedar Rapids and Dcs Moines. I stop at the best hotels, travel first-class, and —I'm my own boss. I have it so ar ranged now that I can come to Omaha once a month, to spend a few days at home, and as I'm making more money than any girl clerk or stenographer in Omaha, I don't see why I shouldn't be satisfied. "Yes, I had to do considerable talking to introduce my line of soap—one has to do that in any business these days—but when I visit these places again I will simply have to present my card, ask 'How much soap do you want?' book the order, and go on my way rejoicing. No, sir, no more box factory for me—not while people use soap." —John Dicks Howe. THE JASAMINE'S STORY The Flowers Are Worn by the Bride* of Tuscany. About the close of the seventeenth cen tury the jasmine was considered a plant of great rarity, and throughout Europe the only place where it was known to exist was in the garden of the Grand Luke of Tuscany. Even here there grew but a single specimen, and this its royal owner prized so highly that his head gardener had strict orders, under the most severe penalties, not to allow a spray or even a flower to be given away. But it happened that among his subor dinates there was a young man who was attached to a beautiful peasant girl, and the sole barrier to their union was their mutual poverty. It was her birthday, and what so natural as that the enamored gardener should present her with a bou quet of choice flowers, in the center of which he placed, regardless ot conse quences, a tiny sprig of the priceless jas mine to make the gift more worthy of his lave. His bethothed put the flowers into water, but the jasmine spray she planted in a pot that the sweet scented blossoms might last a little longer. To her sur prise, the cutting soon showed signs of increased vitality and the quick witted girl, preceiving what a treasure her lover had unthinkingly bestowed, tended it with watchful care, apd as if to reward her, it grew and flourished. Before long its fame had pread abroad and cuttings from the plant were eagerly sought for. These the maiden sold to such advantage that there was no further im pediment to her marriage, and the dowry she brought her husband from the little sprig of jasmine proved amply sufficient to keep them forever beyond the reach of want. From that time it has been the custom for young girls in Tuscany to carry a bon quet of white Jasmine on their wedding day, and the proverb is still quoted: "She who is worthy to wear a nosegay of jas mine is as good as a fortune to her hus band."

BLOSSOMS HAVING ROYAL RANK Messages Are Deftly- Conveyed In Fluivers-Arransement Guarded Against Seven Faults. With such titles as "ten thousand times sprinkled with gold, and dishevelled hair in morning sleep," fresh in his. momery, and coming from a land where the ar rangement of flowers is part of the educa tion, it must be something of a shock to the Japanese visiting this country to hear the prosaic names we bestow on our chrysanthemums and to nnd how reckless ly Americans arrange bouquets. He ap preciates that as a nation we are much less fond of flowers than are his people, and how little they mean to us in life beyond the pleasing sensations produced by their beauty. In Japan the arrange ment of them is pursued sls an art, being profoundly studied by men of rank, philo sophers and priests, besides learned and literary men, ladies of the aristocracy are allowed to practice the art as being likely to inspire such estimable virtues as gen tleness, self-denial, forgetfulness of care and spirituality. A lifetime is indeed not too long for the Japanese, either man or woman, to devote to an understanding of the subtle meaning conveyed by flowers, and"*the rigorous rules necessary to ob serve in producing with them the best artistic results. In Japan the peony, although acknowl edged to be the royal flower of China, is still the favorite of the upper classes. It is given on occasions of importance the position of honor on the dais in the prin cipal recess, never is it placed in the center of the room, nor on a shelf, and no other flower is allowed to come near its royal presence. Sometimes art dictates that two black twigs shall be grouped be hind it, the thought being to enhance by contrast its abundant life and beauty. The lotus flower also is conceded to have royal national rank an<; is called the King of Indian flowers. On festive days the Japanese never use it, as they associate it entirely with the spirit of the dead. The royal flower of Japan, of course, is the cherry blossom. The idea of floral rank is one to which the Japanese are very sensitive and the established laws of precedence must be closely adhered to in the arrangement of their flowers. To an American it seems perhaps inexplicable that they should have placed the purple wistaria high above the white, which they mostly exclude from their compositions. Irises stand very high In rank, but are regarded as difficult of arrangement and, therefore, the most arbitrary rules have been evolved for their composition. With one large flower, but three leaves are allowed; with two flowers, seven or fifteen leaves are used; three flowers are given thirteen leaves, and five flowers are fur nished with eleven leaves. So deftly are thoughts conveyed by the arrangement of flowers in Japan that often verbal messages are unnecessary. In November, the coquette sends to her lover a leaf or branch of maple. "Like it," he translates, "her love has changed." On farewell occasions, those called "re turning flowers," because they bloom twice a year, are used to subtly express the hope of a safe return. Before peo ple that are 111, blossoms of a sturdy, vigorous growth are placed that health and strength may be suggested. Only very gay flowers are strewn in profusion when supplications are made for those in affliction. Prayers for rain are accom panied by large floral pieces so arranged as to point from right to left, that the east wind, bringing rain, may be hon ored, and very naturally the reverse order typifying the west wind ia employed when fair weather is desired. Border of the thin mist, shades of the evening sun, waves in the morning sun, companion of the moon, snow on the leaf of the bamboo, moon's halo, spray-capped wave, starlit night, beacon light, the sky at dawn, first snow, and golden dew are among the many imaginative and pretty names the Japanese bestow on their chry- santhemums, these flowers which appeal so strongly to their poetic natures. In the arrangement of them, they are very careful and guard against seven faults: Their stems must not be of the same length; a single blossom must not turn its back, nor present its full face; three flowers must not appear to form a tri angle; they must not be hidden by leaves. nor must they be arranged In the way of steps; an open, full blossom should never be placed at the base of the composition, and one odd one should not fell between two others alike in color.

FAMOUS ELEANORS AND HELENS The Eleanors and Leonoras of history have been rather a lively Bet of ladies. The first English Queen Eleanor was un fortunate in husbands, having been first married to St. Louis of France, who di vorced her in 1152. and next Henry 11., of England, who drove her to signing her self grimly, "Eleanor, by the wrath of God Queen of England," and to visiting the fair Rosamond in her bower with the dag ger and the poison bowl. But in the mean time she had all the troubadours of Prance making daring love to her by the round about but effective means of ballads. But the next Queen Eleanor, a Castilian, was so beloved by her husband, Edward 1., the stern "hammer of the Scots," that when she died he set up a stone cross as a memorial at every place, where the funeral bearers set down her body while they rested. Henry 111. also had an Eleanor for wife. The Italian Leonoras who attained fame in their day for beauty and wit were many, but the most celebrated of all was the Leonora d'Este, for whom Tasso sighed vainly. She was doubly fortunate, first, in escaping the marriage to a poet, and, second, in gaining deathless honor through his song. Plenty of women nearer our own time have reflected glory on the name of Helen. Three of them were actresses —Mistress Nell Gwynne, the impudent comedienne whom Charles 11. made a duchess; Helen Faucet, who became the wife of Sir Theodore Martin, and whom Queen Vic toria made her friend, and our own Helene Modjeska of to-day. Helen Hunt Jack son was twenty-five years ago the leading feminine spirit in American letters, and "Helen" with Gould added to it, is becom- ing synonymous with a form of philan thropy as peculiarly characteristic of her own age as was that of her great name sake who founded a cathedral and became the patron saint of the Greek church.
