"ciico. Alia toilette la Fccomplished
under such harrowing circumstances.
iJut it is surmising Low readily one
becomes indiffefei,t to the surround
ioffs. r-aii a stoat young woman from
an adjoining seclon: "I have trav
eled ail the way from San Francisco
in s sleeper, and I've lost the last
ehred 0f modesty." I believed
ber when I caw her sitting
on the end of her berth in
her corset with loosened lacings
drawing on her boots with a laviud
diep'ay of plumply filled hosiery, the
curtains pushed back and meu and
women paesing to and from tbe
toilette rnnm. It was a ceedle: ex
posure. Tbe girl across the stale, No. 3,
emerged from her closet curtains with
not a crinkle in ber drapery, boots
buttoned and hair es fmoth as satin
to the line where it broke int ) billo s
of :rlni('liiefn nver fcer forehead. Hbw
did she do it T 8he v.asiu tbe toile to
riom with the first streak of dawn, for
I peeped through my curtains as she
passed by in dreeing sack and tkirts,
tbe voluminous drapery on her arms
and tbe crimping pins held by a lovely
turban. There was a difldrtncel Sue
could trrvel to China and back with
out danger to her modetty.
There wa a IS year old girl on that
train whi will own tbe road some day
unless they multiply her and so divide
the profits of her peculiarity. She is
rather pretty, in an uncultured style,
and she looks aa ingealus as a babe ;
but what she knows of the nature ol
masculine bnmanity would burst the
rovers of an nnabridged dictionary.
She prospers by a combination of wit
snd lemon drops, bhe enters tbe car
with a calm smile on her face and an
opened package of her wares in ber
hands. As she walks down the aisle
she shakes one drop from the package
into the lap of each passenger and cas
ually i remarka: "Nice, fresh lemon
drops ; there ain't none like 'em made;
try them before yoa buy them ; only
B cents a packajie." The passengers
all glare, and nobody tries them at
first not until the shrewd creature Is
down at the other end of the car, med
itatively dramming her fingers on the
glass of the door as she waits for her
silent psriner to get in Its work, which
it always does. A lemon drop isn't
big, nor Is it pretty, but the neat
ness and dispatch with which
it can upset the mental balance
of a strong man, when he has received
it from a witcby sort of a girl, is a
caution. One by one the seductive
little samples are transferred from the
laps of ihe men to their mouths.
And that settles it. The bits of sngar
and acid are fire to the palates. By
the time - the' girl has " finished her
serenade on tbe oar door glass she can
face an assemblags whose mou hs are
animated by but one watering thought,
whose souls ntter but one cry the
longing for more. They all buy them
the msn with a sudden tickling in
his throat that must he assuaged; the
chap who hides the little paper box
under his coat and slyly slips one into
his mouth when he thinks nobody is
looking; the aged guy, whose fre
quent hand to the mouth that it nec
essitates, betrays the entering ol an
other drop, and the bold fellow who
munches the yellow morsels openly
and nnblushlngly all contribute their
nickel to the future wealth of the girl.
Yoa have doubtless seen train boys
working the sample game, but it takes
a pretty girl to develop its possibili
ties. ,
My male cousin came running Into
my presence the other day with the
exclamation. "Look at met What do
you think of these togsT I've mads
up my mind to knock out the dudes
Iroaa this time on." Now there was
nothing remarkable In that speech for
a man, but I never yet saw the woman
who would have expressed sicU a
sentiment. I am all up in arms now,
snd 1 am going to prove by this text
that men are eeveral shades vainer1
than women.1 And they are vainer
about their clotlies then women are.
I know the world thinks differently.
Men have done all the speech making
and moat of the wi hing for centuries,
and they have all harped on tbe van
ity of women aud tbe Importance
women ascribe to dress. ' Now. I've
got the fljor, and am going to knock
that notion to smithereens. At least,
I am going to knock it a wee, tiny
little bit. r
In Society I am continually hearing
men say: "I've got a dress suit that
will make the girls all sweet on me."
or "I've ordered a riding coat that will
rnnke tbe nobs green with envy," or
"Waittllllgetmysitln lined over
coat, and I'll be irresistible." All
chaff, yon ssy. Yet no one fails to
recognise the truthfulness of the si'ly
ana egotistical expression, and no one
ever heard a woman or girl say such a
thing, in fun or in earnest. Women
are vain about dress, Oh, yes; they
are human. Bat women that is,
rood and respectable women -don't
dress for men's eyes. They don't
think of tbe effect of their uwns on
the other sex. New, if yoa didn't
know that, or u yoa think I am
Stretching a little tor argument, let roe
assure yoa that it is true. The ardor
of woman in dress is due to rivalry
with her own aex. Each woman wants
to look better than, or at leaat aa well
as, each other woman. Let me put it

I was saying all this to a gentleman
who thought he had the better of me
by asserting that women are forever
looking in mirrors, and primping and
shaking out this part and smoothing
down the otner, ana mttvaung tueir

truth. The women do no end of that
sort of thing. But it is not from, van
ity. Did you ever see a lady wn ae

street with a tail ef it down the back T
Did 1 you ever see a lady with ber

earT Well, it ia to prevent such hu
miliating things as that that women
always glance at a glass, and give a
shake here and a touch there, and a
smoothing somewhere else. A woman
dressed is a masa of devices that are
liable to get out of p'aoe, and are
only held in place by plos
and clasps, hairpins straps snd
laces. Her hair may come down,
her hat get out of place, her stockings
may climb down on her shoes, her
oversklrt mty perch on her hip or
bustle, her skirts may loosen and drop
beneath the drees. Is it any wonder
she looks at her reflection whenever
she can ? And yet, "kind gentlemen,"

none the less a fact that when a Broad

In the issue of the 27th of Novem

Second that motion with all my heart.
In fact, I had fully Ifttendod making
the motion myself in the A pi-sal of
December 5th, but our thoughtful
editor anticipated me, f Jr which I am
glad. The i&oord says:"

Any woman who bat ever been on
a tail vl iting committee can testify to
the truth of this. At least one-half of
the young men with whom I have
talked in our County Jail have told
me that their first step lu wrong doing
was taken in this way. They were
strangers, perhaps poor, unemployed
and shabbily dressed,and no place but
the saloons gave thom a welc ome. I
think II our businees men were ap
proached on this subject they wouid
respond liberally. Many of them ere
self made men snd they remember
what it waa to be poor and Strang rs
in a strange land, and I have faith to
believe they would be glad to extend
such a holding hand tothe young
workmen of our city. Aud so believ
ing I intend at as early a date as pos
sible to set on lojt a movement by
which they will be enabled to prove
that my faith in them was not without
foundation. 1
The editor of the Record speaks of
"building a placi of that kind." That
la certainly desirable, but we must
wait some time before it can be ac
complished. Meanwhile I see no
reason why we ahould wait. A good
hall could be rented, beginning with
January, 1887, and plainly but com
fortably furnished at small coat. I
was talking the other evening with a
practical man and we ' fljured it up,"
and found tbst a hall couid be rented
tor a year and furnished with stoves.
book cases, tables, chairs, etc., at a cost
of about $300. Moreover I always
strike while the iron is hot I obtained
a promise of 0 to begin with. Then.
instead of waiting for a fund where
with to bav a library let contributions
be solicited, and I am aure we can get
a nucleus in mat way. And 1 ran

every week, and in that way many
can be supplied with reading matter
who are unable to bny it. And if the
hall were once opened entertainments
sould be given for the benefit of the
library and for running expenses.
This is a pet scheme around which
my heart's desire has revolved for lo I
tbeee many days, and I want to see it
perfected quite aa much for tha bene
fit nf onr working- women as for the
working men. We have in oar city
hundreds of working women,employed
in stores, factories, millinery establish
ments, and many toiling with their
needles at home, for a pittance that
barely keeps soul ana Dody together.
Nobody thinks of these women.

Thus far they bare lived among us a
forgotten data so far an any public
recognltic n is concerned. The people
of Memphis are publio spirited, but
thus far they have not impelled this
spirit in a progressive direction. As
regards Institutions of this kind we are
far behind our slater cities, friends,
this state of things should not be suf
fered to continue. Let us open our
hearts, our minds, our sympathies and
our purses and put this scheme into
eQectlve operation and let us do it
now. j, Yours lor pmsreee,
