SATURDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 28, 1901.
MRS. J. A. BRANT President of the Authors' Study Club of Minneapolis Mrs. J. A. Brant was the organizer of the Authors Study Club and has been its president and moving spirit during its five years history. The club meets fortnight ly at the home of the members and the topic of study is authors arid their rep resentative work. The programs are made out for periods of three months and an interesting course on Tennyson has just been completed. A new program committee, comprising Mmes. X. a. Bprong, C. L. Easton, and Charles SECRET OF HEALTH AND BEAUTY Interesting and Varied Formula of French Ac tresses, Who Are Perennially Young, The youthful freshness and elastic sup pleness that Parisian actresses habitually succeed in maintaining after long years of exhaustive professional work, involving late hours, hasty meals, and exposure to sudden changes of temperature, have from time beyond memory elicited the amaze ment and admiration of theatrical observ ers. "My soldiers, madam, would al ways be victorious if they could only en- Joy your perpetual health,' 'were the •words with which Maurice de Saxe greeted AArlenne Lecouvreur one evening when he met the tragedienne at the door of the greenroom. The perennial spring of Sarah Bernhardt is perhaps quite as remarkable as that of the favorite actress of, the eighteenth century, and the juvenile exuberance and comeliness of Mme. Bar tet, Rejane, and Jeanne Granier has in duced the Goulois, one of the most essen tially Parisian of newspapers, to ascer tain from the most prominent actresses and singers how they manage to preserve their youthful appearance. Sarah Bernhardt's Resrtnie. Mine. Sarah Bernhardt says that the real secret of her good health is ceaseless bard work. I avoid the open air as much as possible. I shut myself up either at home or In the theater, and keep my self in constant mental and physical train ing. I go to bed at 3 o'clock in the morn ing, and rise at 9. I eat little—usually fish and eggs. lam fondi of oysters, fried Boles, grilled mullet and brook trout. I eat a great many eggs—sometimes as many as ten a day. I drink nothing but champagne. 1 always drive to the thea ter in a carriage, usually in my brougham, with closed windows. I often remain in the theater eleven or twelve hours at a stretch, without seeing daylight, and al most without fresh air. I usually dine in the theater. It is true that in the sum- i mer season I make up for this by open air life at Belle-Isle, but that is my holi day; that is to say, its exception. At Belle-Isle I always have the windows •wide open to let in the sea breeze, and I find that this sudden change from the close air of the theater to the open air •of the ocean does me an immense amount of good much to the astonishment of the doctors, who tell me that such sudden changes are dangerous. I hate taking medicine of any description, and avoid sanitary precautions and thinking of my health. Hard, hard work during ten months of the year gives me no time to be ill. Work! work! that Is my hygiene." Beltves in Frei»h Air. Mme. Bartet of the Comedie Francase follows no particular regime, except that she always sleeps with her windows open, | summer and winter. "I eat anything that j suits my fancy—chicken, beefsteaks, mut ton ohop9, game truffles, all kinds of fish, and plenty of eggs. I frequently indulge in rich food, such as mayonnaise salads, lobsters, and game pastry, but I invariably take good care to eat little, and never quite appease my hunger. I drink red or white Bordeaux, Burgundy, or cham pagne, but take little liquid of any kind. I am fond of walking in the open air, but always drive to the theater, usually in a •losed carriage." Exerclte as Cotinietic. Mme. Rachel Boyer of the Comedie Francaise enjoys most robust health, which she attributes to fresh air. "I am fond of my automobile and after working in the theater there is nothing so refresh ing as a brisk spin in the country over a good road at a speed of forty miles an hour. It is so bracing and stimulating! I eat and drink almost everything, pro- Tided the dishes ere carefully and thor oughly prepared and the wla«s are of good quality. I prefer toast to bread, and like good, palatable, wholesome food, such as boiled fish, Irish stews, grilled mush rooms, and eggs in almost every variety of form, provided they are not hard boiled. lam a fervent enthusiast of cold baths taken the first thing in the morn- Ing, and also of a warm bath at night, Just before going to bed. I find shower baths and douches excellent and I take them three or four times a week. To sum up, fresh air and plenty of cold water bathing have always kept me out of the I hands of the doctors."

Reiane usually drives about in a victoria drawn by a Dair of black mules given her by the king of Portugal, and bathing and massage enter largely into her habits of life. She passes the summer at the seaside near Trou ville, where she and her husband and their two little children live in a charming Norman cottage overlooking the ocean. The sea air acts as a restorative. Her diet is not limited by any special regime. She is fond of fish and eggs and usually drinks a light white Bordeaux". Follow* Xo Fixed Regime. Mme. Jeanne Granier. who seems to be always in glorious health and spirits, declares that "life is too short to devote one' 3 self to following any special regi men, I do pretty much what 1 please and eat and drink pretty much as I please. I go to Deauville in summer to lay in a large sinking fund of superfluous health, and after the same sea breezes there I find that I am able to act all winter and spring, but I always try to get away for three weeks in February to take sun baths a-t Monte Carlo. I like plain, whole some food—roast beef, boiled mutton, chops, lamb cutlets, 'boiled chicken—and always make a point of eating plenty of fish and eggs. I am fond of good dry , BJKt^^^.

If 1 fall ill I obey the orders of my doc tor, but my life at Neuilly, removed from the feverish atmosphere of the theater and of the boulevards, keeps me in good form. I take douches and employ mas sage. After rehearsals I drive about in the Bois or sit in the open air. This with mental repose and occasional journeys by rail or automobile renews ray strength. I enjoy much simply reclining in the open air and basking, like a lizard, in the sun shine. I eat and drink whatever tempts my palate, but I carefully avoid any ex cess." Mile. Marcelle Lender of the Varietes i drives a great deal in the open air, and ; exercises in her room with elastic straps, | which keep her muscles firm and in good j working order. "The secrets of my good > health," she says, "are fresh air and cold I baths.

Summing up, it would seem that plenty of outdoor exercise is, after all, the best cosmetic and the true elixir of life. It would also seem that in spite of the gen eral belief that actresses, especially Parisian players, lead an irregular life, they are not given to excesses. This seems true of the most famous, at all events, end it is on this account that they can remain on the stage, holding successive generations of playgoers captive by their youthfulness and beauty. CHRISTMAS GREENS Quaint Superstitions Linger in the Holly and Mistletoe. Ax and knife have been doing their vandal work in the fair woods to provide us with the pine and Hr, holly, laurel, bay and mistletoe. Why? Because of the Christmas season; be cause of the festival of rejoicing; because of the celebration of the coming of a new era. Rut why these green things? Why the gifts on the Ibranches of pine? Why the holly j about the windows, that It may be seen from i without, airl the laurel over the hearthstone? | Why, above all and the center of all, these .green and living growths, the mistletoe i bough? Christmas seized upon these things for the celebratioai of the festival not 'because they were green, but because of the power that held them green, that kept them alive, that preserved in them the beauty of life, not withstanding the snow and sleet, the wind and chilling rain and the withering blast. Those who celebrated the Christmastide wanted the benefit of this power for their own protection and preservation, so tbey took to themselves the emblems of it—surrounded themselves with them, brightened their homes with then; and rejoiced amid their branches. It is the spirit of these living growths that appeals to us wh;n all the rest of inanimate nature appear* to be sleeping under the man tle ci winter. Before Christmas was, the spir its behind the igreen were believed in by an imaginative peopiu, and the great festival adopted them. The "ancient Druids believed in the spirits of the holly, of the laurel, of the bay, and of tho great green trees that formed the walls and living arches of their temples. To them these things were peopled with sylvan spirits ifaat loved the growths and kept them green iby protecting them from winter frosts. They took the branches within their dwelling,, be lieving that the spirits would follow and there exercise their protecting care. Among these spirits they believed none to be more powerful or capable of bringing greater blessing than those of the mistletoe. Blessed be thr man and maid who met beneath the mistletoe bourtrh. These beliefs have gone from the world, but we cling to the emblems of them, and rejoice amid then) at the Christmas celebration. AN AGED DUCHESS. The oldest of all living royalties is the Duchess Frederick of Anhalt Bernberg, who has just passed her ninetieth birthday. She is the sister of the oldest sovereign, the King of Denmark. She married at the age of 23, but her married life was clouded by a great sorrow. Her husband lost his reason shortly after their union, and the duchecs was regent until his death, thirty-eight years ago. Ho for California.

MINNEAPOLIS IS MAD OVER DANCING A Craze for the Pleasures of the Ballroom Has Possession of Young and Old Alike. Minneapolis has gone In for dancing with a mad enthusiasm this winter, and there are few who do not belong io at least one club, while any number have Joined two or three for the purpose of "treading the mazy." There were dancing clubs two years ago, more were formed last winter and this winter the organiza tions Include those for the boys and girls in school, college, younger set, older set, bridal couples, young married people, middle-aged and older set until everyone is provided for. These clubs have played havoc with private entertaining, for when a man and woman have regular engage meats to dance two or three times a week, why should they give a party to enable them to do the same thing c fourth even ing? The same craze for clubs has shown the women who do entertain how much easier it is to give a party in one of the smaller halls than at home. Nothing is expected in the way of decorations or a Bupper and if good music aud a generous supply of frappe or punch is provided the guests are more than satisfied. The dancing clubs have also been re munerative for the da,ncing teachers. Fully half of the members, that is, of the mid dle-aged and older set, have taken private lessons, and well-known business men have stolen away from their offices to practice "one, two, three; one, two, three," with labored breath and stiffened muscles that they might present better figures at the next meeting of their club. As a rule, older men learn quicker than older women. They throw themselves into the lessons with a determination to do or die that is bound to meet its reward. A woman takes her steps indifferently. Before the Hostesses' ball the dancing teachers were more than busy with pupils of all ages, who were brushing up their steps. A well-known banker went every day for several weeks and the day after the ball hunted up his instructor and thanked her for having been instrumental in giving him a pleasure he had been denied all his life. "I never knew what it meant to dance," he said, in almost awed tones. Round dances, in spite of all that has been said to the contrary, preserve their popularity and there are few square dances on the programs. The three step and half step have superseded the two step with the school and college set, while the older danc«rs cling to the lat ter which is easy to learn and full of rhythm. There are some who ought never to dance anything but square dances and it is like pushing a burglar proof safe around the room to dance with them, but they enjoy themselves with such open-hearted pleasure that it would be more than rude to tell them that they ought to adopt roller skates. "May I be preserved from the girl who holds herself like a ramrod from the waist up," piously implored a young man, the other evening, as he left the dress ing-room. "And I from the one who is like a poker from "the waist down," added his com-l panion. Just across the hall the girls were in terceding for protection against the well meaning man who cannot dance and can not be brought to realize that he cannot dance. Almost as objectionable in their eyes is the man who realizes his ignorance and in his eagerness to do his best dances on his partner's pretty evening shoes in stead of on the floor. The smart set ia Minneapolis dance very rapidly and the men hold themselves in military fashion with the right arm rigidly outstretched. The men in the college set bend the right arm and hold it close to the face, a position which their dancing teachers have vainly endeavored to persuade them to abandon. One of the mannerisms of the younger set is for a man to run his partner rapidly across the hall without regard to time or music. In fact, Minneapolis dancers dance inde pendently of the music half the time. This latter does not interfere with the beginner who counts laboriously all through the dance. It is rather difficult for him when his partner Is one of those volatile creatures who has breath for both dancing and conversation. "I've done two men's work," exclaimed a young man at a recent party, as he threw himself on a chair in the smoking room and lighted a cigarette. "I thought this was to be a dancing party and the dear creature I just towed around the ballroom evidently took it for a conver sazione. She wasn't content with talk ing, but she asked questions. I tried to NEGLIGEE OF NET AND SATIX RIBBON glorified shirt waist, lias been chosen from the many models in the shops that the home dressmaker may see what can be done with simple materials. It is of pink nun's veiling—what could be more inexpensive—the model opening at the back and showing a girlish tucking at the front. A charming yoke effect is made by a narrow black velvet ribbon crossing the chest in a diamond blocking, whose points enclose five squares of lace, in a soft yellow-white. The usual trying stock is replaced by a becoming collar with turn back points trimmed over a plain piece simulating a stock band. At the back of the waist, which is belted down flatly, there are three tucks at each side of the fastening, which is accomplished by seven small black velvet buttons. Five of the same buttons hold the odd cuffs to gether at the forearm. To copy such a bodice four yards of tire her out by running her up and down the floor, but she wouldn't tire, so I did the hard-of-hearing stunt. I heard her tell Mary Blank just now that I was 9eaf as a post." It is the old friends, those who have been friends for years and years, who con verse deeply and earnestly all through a dance. The man holds his partner as though he were afraid she would be snatched from him, and they talk and talk and talk as they go charging madly up and down the ballroom, seeing no one, hearing nothing, not even the muttered expressions that follow them. Before them is terror, behind them dismay, but they are lost in a cloud of reminiscences from which they fall with a thud when the music ceases. The couples who don't converse are those who have just befen introduced. They have not had time to find a common ground and they hold themselves with dignity and they take up more room than three couples have a right to. It is generally conceded that Minneapo lis men are not at all nice when they at tend a private dancing party. In spite of the fact that the word "dancing" ap peared on their invitations, they seem surprised and grieved that their hostess expects them to dance, and they gather in the smoking-room while the girls are ranged round the ballroom until the host ess makes promises to herself about re vising her list of guests in the future. One man has the proud record of hav ing attended half a dozen dancing parties at as many private houses this winter without appearing once in any ballroom. Another frequenter of smoking-rooms when he is expected to be in the ball room has a habit of strolling up to look in the door and say patronizingly to the girls who are dying to dance, and who know just -what men are shirking their duty for a cigar: "What, not dancing?" This little remark has been known to cre ate unkind feelings in half a dozen cases, and generous punishment is to be meted out. The girls are not altogether faultless, although they look like angels in their fluffy gowns, and It is a feminine trick to skip dances. "It is impossible to refuse to allow a man to look at your card —so what else can we do?" they ask, innocently. They hall with delight the informal affair where memory takes the place of a dance card, and It is a bold man who will insist that a dance is his when Miss Frivol declares with regretful calmness that she gave it to Johnny Jump-up. So dancing clubs have taken the place of card clubs, and one no longer hears that women are negleoting their children for the chance to win a triumpery prize. Instead the crokers declare that Mrs. Blank is miking a martyr of her husband, dragging him to dancing clubs every other night. Crokers are singularly ignorant, and they don't know that Mr. Blank pays his wife a dollar every evening she at tends the club. He dotes on dancing and she—well, women are always unselfish. ENGLISH HUNTING WOMEN The modern Englishwoman is among the boldest, best and most confident riders to hounds. She comes to the meet in her sailor hat, perhaps—certainly if she finds it more comfortable —a covert coat, long boots, and a habit out short to the ankles —a mere apron of a thing which does not pretend to conceal her breeches, and is, on foot, the ugliest and most indecent dress ever worn by a woman, but ia accepted as a matter of course be cause of its practical utility. By a curious contradiction, however, the same woman who walks about in the stable yard among the groom* in her habit without shame, would not be seen in the equally useful and much more graceful knickerbocker costume worn for the bicycle by women everywhere in France. The hunting woman would not sacrifice her day's sport for any other pleasure on earth. But it means more than the chase to her; it means glowing downs, radiant with color, the beauty and sweetness of earth, the balsamic perfume of pure air, and health and strength. After hours in the saddle, she will return to the hall, and bathe and dress and dine and dance till midnight; and then be up again, keen as the north wind for more exercise, and fresh as the new day.

EXQUISITE NEEDLEWORK ON BODICE AND SKIRT nun's veiling and five yards of velvet would be necessary. As to the lace, search the bargain counters for a remnant of Russian point—imitation, of course — with a well denned pattern. Then cut the figures out, whether they are squares, oblongs, diamonds or discs, and apply them in the same way with neat stitchery. The medallions thus made will be found a deal cheaper than the guimpe ones, which, however, considering their solid finish and the fact that they can be bought separately, are no-t as dear. The skirt shown in this photograph is of pale grey peau de sole with a robe ef fect in white lace at the front. SAUT DE LIT OF WHITE POINT DESPRIT AND BLUE RIBBON. Nowhere is the girl of the period more addicted to delicate sewing than in the froufrou raiment, which passes no fur ther than the portal of her chamber. The Prominent W. C. T. U. Worker : ■ ■ :■■:..■ :■■■ ■'■' :: " ■ ■ "^'i Dr. Louise Ferro, one of the well known W. C. T. U. workers in. Minnesota, was born in [ndiana in 1843. Her father was a Methodist minister, and her early life was spent in the southeastern part of that state where her education was obtained at the schools in the neighborhood. At the age of IB she began to teach. She was graduated from A Talparaiso College, and took a post graduate course in the state university at Bloomington. Having stud ied medicine under Dr. Elias Long, and attended a course of lectures, she en tered the Woman's Medical College- in Chicago. She finished her studies and re turned to Tracy, Minn., in 1881, to begin practicing with her husband. It was after her return that she be came actively interested in the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, and three WOMEN AND THEIR GOWNS Lady Lennox Believes That American Women are the Best-Dressed in the World. "Your American women are the best dressed in ,the world. All London and Paris, society can tell the American woman at a glance by the beautiful cut of her gown and her Irreproachable way of wearing it," said the "best dressed woman in London," as Lady Gordon Lennox is called in England. Lady Lennox is at the Waldorf-Astoria and was dressed in a striking gown of red velvet, relieved by black silk trimimngs. Her hat was of .the picture type, black and white, with an ostrich feather encircling its rim. A white polka dot veil softened the bright color of her face. Lord end Lady Lennox are at the Wal dorf for only a few days, and then they go west to be the guests of ex-Sehsitor Wolcott in Colorado. It is Lady Lennox's first visit to this country, and she comes for her health. "I do not know how I received the title of 'the best dressed woman in England,' " she said, when the subject of dress was suggested. "To my mind the American women are the finest dresserß in the world. We, in London, can tell them at a glance. They look well dressed because they look comfortable. Comfort \s the most delightful negligees are seen com posed entirely of stripes of satin ribbon between insertions of lace or point d'esprit, the whole garment in many in stances being made by hand.

The bewitching negligee pictured is a shop model of this description.

When the dis trict president retired on account of fail ing health Dr. Ferro took the office. She served for seven years and then resigned to take up other work. For two years she was state organizer under the direc tion of Mrs. Harriet Hobart. Home cares and professional duties became too press ing to be ignored, and she gave up her po sitions to retain that of state superintend ent of temperance hospitals, to which she had been appointed. This work was largely done by correspondence, and has since been dropped from the departments of the national society. Since the age of 9 Dr. Ferro had been actively working, by herself, and through organizations, for the betterment of the world. guide in the selection of the well-dressld woman's wardrobe. "The success of the American woman la the art of dressing is in the primary ques tion which she always asks herself: 'Will this become me?' She does not follow the fashion slavishly, as does her French ri val, who trails after the fashion year in and year out, with no thought of whether the gown is becoming or not. "There is a wrong impression abroad that it takes money to dress well. The simplest dress, well chosen, of good color, and well fitted, is all that is needed. Ex travagances often mar rather than beau tify. I think I make economy the first consideration. You would not think that I have worn this frock for four years. "I don't see why one should be ashamed of economy in dress," pursued Lady Gor don Lennox. "Why, any one can be smart with unlimited money. It is the woman who can make a good appear ance on a modest sum who is really clev er, and It is that type of woman, too, who usually possesses a style of her own. "I wear what I think becomes me and is comfortable. The new fashions from year to year are only inventions to catclx the eye for a moment. The woman who dresses becomingly and comfortably is al ways well dressed. The passerby never asks, 'Is that the fashion?' "I usually select plain, rich materials and fashions that are not aggressive. la that way one is never conspicuous; her clothes do not become passe in a few weeks and the subject of dress does not assume the alarming proportions that it does 'in the lives of some of the poor creatures who are slaves to their mo distes. "I seldom wear colors myself, as I am particularly partial to black and white. I ana rather fond of chiffons, silk muslins, and crepe de chine for dancing frocks, but after all I don't believe there is anything quite so rich and so becoming as soft, heavy white satin. "My favorite jewels are pearls. I brought over few jewels of any descrip tion, for I expert to travel a great deal, end they are such a nuisance." Lady Lennox is an advocate of the short skirt. She has several in her trunks which she will wear on long tramps out in Colorado. These tailor made aklrts, she says, have revolutionized the rules of dress all over the world. Lady Lennox believes that Paris will always be the leading city for fashionable dress wear ers. "Fashions started there," she said, "and I believe that it will always keep in the lead. English women are just learning how to dress. As they have learned from their American cousins, I will take a great interest while in this country in watching the American woman's style. "You can't imagine how eager I am to see the west." concluded Lady Lennox, evidently thinking she had given quite enough time to the subject of personal adornment. "I am anxious, too, to travel on your luxurious palace cars, which, I understand, are more elaborate than any we have."
