WOMAN'S WORLD.
THE IMPORTANT QUESTION OF WO
MEN WORKING TO KILL TIME.
A Talented Writer—What a Woman Can
Do—Oxford Taken by Women —So Soon
Forgotten —In the Editor's Chair.
Pretty Mrs. Aronson.
Recently in Brooklyn a teacher in one
of the public schools received a legacy.
She immediately announced her resigna
tion, saying she felt that the place ought
to belong to some one who needed the
compensatiou, which she no longer did.
This incident brings up anew the some
what delicate question of how far ama
teur industry ought to go. Quite dif
ferent from this woman's evident opin
ion in the matter is that held by an
other. She is a graduate of Vassar, wad
she found on sitting down at home after
her college career that time hung heavy
upon her hands.
Her father, a man of wealth, is also a
prominent member of the board of edu
cation in the suburban town where they
reside. She decided to teach, and it was
easy for him to provido a place for her.
She lives at home in all luxury. A hand
some carriage, with liveried coachman,
takes her to school every day, and on
the hand which signs the receipts for her
quarter's salary are glittering rings,
whose gems are worth three times the
amount of the stipend.
Is this misplaced energy or only com
mendable industry? Not long ago a
young girl whose father was bankrupt
and infirm and whoso mother was dead
tried to turn her chief talent—decorative
painting—to account. She prepared
some work and submitted it to several
dealers. All admired, but none cared to
purchase. At length one offered her a
price which scarcely covered the expense
of the material, and so she somewhat in
dignantly told him.
"It's the best 1 can do," he said with a
shrug of tbe shoulders; "I can get all 1
can sell for less even than this. You see,
there are plenty of ladies who do this
work merely for the occupation. They
are fond of painting, and only care to
keep in material." Ho further admitted
that not any of them, or certainly only
one or two, displayed the skill nnd
artistic effect which the work before
him showed, but most of them painted
with grace and delicacy, and their wares
were salable. Now, ought all this to be?
—New York Times.
A Talented Writer.
Miss Katharine Pearson Woods, au
thor of the much discussed "Metzerott
Shoemaker," is a Virginia lady, 37 years
of age, a worthy disciple of Edward
Bellamy and a member of the Economic
club, which progressive society she or
ganized. She is the granddaughter of
the Rev. James Dabney McCabe and the
great-granddaughter of James McCabe,
who fought in the French and Indian
and Revolutionary wars. She is a pret
ty, willowy woman of medium height,
with a delicate, spirituelle face, lumi
nous gray eyes and very charming man
ners.
In 1872 Miss Woods was particularly
fascinated by the life of tho Mount Cal
vary Sisters, of tho Episcopal church,
who established a convent in Baltimore,
in the parish where she was doing mis
sion work. Tho young girl was a fre
quent and welcome visitor at the con
vent, and in 1874 applied for admission,
and was accepted and received as a
novice. She remained in the cloister
only six months, and, returning to tha
world, she taught school for eight years
in Mount Washington and Wheeling,
W. Va.
Newspaper work followed, and she
contributed the usual quantity of poems,
sketches and short stories to the waste
basket before being recognized. With
the pluck of the southern woman she
persisted, and when, a year ago. her
"Metzerott" appeared anonymously her
identity was betrayed and her praises
sung. She has just published a second
story, "The Mark of the Beast," a re
markable work directed against the
"sweating shops," with which system
the entire labor world is unhappily most
familiar.—Exchange.
What a Woman Can Do.
i "What a woman can do" is well ex
emplified by the career of Mrs. Alice
Houghton. Mrs. Houghton is a tall,
handsome woman with the rapid, brusque
manner of one who knows the business
methods of the big, booming west. She
ought to know them, too, for those same
methods have made for Mrs. Houghton
over $250,000 in three years. She is the
real estate queen of Washington terri
tory, and she handles property whose
value would take away the breath of the
common real estate speculator, even in
Chicago.
"I believe a woman can do anything
she takes a fancy to," said Mrs. Hough
ton. "I started out with a lucky specu
lation in real estate at Spokane Falls, by
which I made $10*000. I didn't put it
away in a safe deposit vault. I invested
it and made more. Then I hired an
office and began commission deals. I
have done a business since which has
run up occasionally to the amount of
$200,000 a week."
Mrs. Houghton does the biggest com
mission business in Spokane Falls, and
is wildly enthusiastic about her home. —
Chicago Tribune.
Oxford Taken by Women.
Oxford is no longer sacred to mascu
line genius only. Belva Lockwood has
been there with eight of her American
sisters, having knocked and gained ad
mission within the walls where the
flower of England's statesmen have been
educated.
Belva Lockwood and company have
been studying "University extension"
with a view to inaugurating it in the
states.
Three years ago Oxford grasped a new
thought. It opened a summer school,
Liberally supplied with professors, offi
cers, lecturers and readers. The sum of
£5 was found sufficient to cover the en
tire expense of board and tuition.
The summer school of '00 was opened
Dy Professor Max Muller and the Rev. J.
Bellamy, D. D., president of St. John's
college.
One of the lecturers, Dr. Murray, is
elaborating a dictionary in which he in
tends to give a history of every one of
the 50,000 words that it contain* It ha?
already taken him ten years with the
.assistance of three girls.

tora auring the summer, and. a'lf were
intensely interested in the idea of ex
tending nniversity education to the
masses.
Women take more interest in the idea
than do the men, and they are not friv
olous women, either. To uso Mrs. Lock
wood's words: "They ar« not all young
women, nor handsome women, nor fash
ionable women. I have looked in vain
for bustle or banfjKi W fringe or any su
perfluous adornment. There is a sprink
ling of men, either very young or very
old, and a few of what might properly
be called laboring men."—London Let

Soon Forgotten.
How soon one's good deeds are forgot
ten. And how soon in the busy and
moving life of a big city do the most
prominent sink into obscurity when they
have retired from active work. In a
recent issue of the Inter-Ocean is this
four lino item:
"Mrs. Jane C. Hoge, an elderly wo
man, fell at her home, No. 1152 North
Halsted street, last week and fractured
her hip. She died yesterday from her
injuries."
Nearly thirty years ago the name of
this "elderly woman" was on every
body's lips. She was cmo of the most
prominent ladies in Chicago, the possess
or of great intellectual strength and abil
ity in every direction. During the war
she was one of tho most earnest work
ers in the Union cause, and none was
more indefatigable in personal efforts
than she. She was one of the prime
movers in the executive committee of
the Soldiers' home when it was founded.
About 18G2 Mrs. Hoge visited tho hos
pitals at Cairo and Mound City, and
labored hard to solace the wounded and
to see that the contributions to the sol
diers wero properly distributed. She
was also one of the members of the first
woman's council of the United States
sanitary commission. Her labors in be
half of the soldier, to say nothing of her
many sterling qualities, entitle her at
least to kindly mention and respectful
comment.
With such a career to her credit she
deserved better than a passing note as
an "elderly woman." It would have
been kinder to have suffered her to die
unnoticed and unknown.—Chicago Post.
In the Editor's Chair.
The editress of The Woman's Penny
Paper is a true lover of her sex. She
and her staff work together on the most
friendly terms. Not only are all the ar
ticles written by women, but the com
positors are women, the office boy is a
woman, and so aro tho janitor and te
legrapher. Tho editress has but one
name for her staff—deal - . The assistant
editor is called my dear, but the rest of
the help answer to plain and simple but
sweet and short "dean."
At home The Peomy editress em
ploys a maid-of-all-wark, a woman cook
and two "lady helps" in the "preservery,"
who put up the jellies, jams, marmalades
and fruit butters, from which she real
izes half the profits of her journalistic
work. Disgusted with the laziness and
general worthlessness of her gardeners,
she advertised for female labor, and an
avalanche of horticultural loveliness
swept down upon her. Many of the ap
plicants for the position of gardener were
daughters of clergymen. She made her
selection, and has since openly declared
that women make the best gardeners in
the field.—London Letter.
Pretty Sirs. Aropson.
Mrs. Rudolph Aronson, the wife of
the manager of the Casino, is af sort of
female Admirable Crichton. She idraws,
she paints, she plays, she siugs an d she
"sculpts." She has recently completed
a terra cotta bust of her very handsome
husband. The likeness is most marked,
the work is wonderfully strong - and
wholly unsuggestive of the amateur.
Mrs. Aronson is a pupil of St. Gaudens,
who ranks her among his "first ttest."
In addition to all these gifts and accom
plishments Mrs. Aronson is a distitact
ingly pretty woman.
Her eyes are as blue as turquoises, her
skin has the transparent fairness and the'
tints of a conch shell, her pretty little
teeth are like pearls, and all this facial
perfection is framed in pale golden hair,
Mrs. Aronson is little and young—just
on the other side off her teens. She is an
excellent linguist, an omnivorous reader,
and she has a younger Bister as pretty as
herself, with a voice over which Theo
dore Thomas enthuses. —New York
Press.
An Exquisite Fabric.
One of the most exquisite dressifabrics
ever brought to this country is a Japanese
rainbow crape, which Miss Elizabeth
Bisland found in Japan during her trip
around the world last spring. It is a
silvery white, silky, daintily woven
stuff, with a very fine crapy twill and a
moonlight sheen overlying it. Across
the narrow breadths, in diagonal stripes,
are laid faint, illusive colors of pale rose,
light gold, the blue of early dawn, faint
green and shadowy lilac.
These ravishing hues, that are gather
suggested than defined, seem to glimmer
through warp and woof of the lustrous
silk, one minute burning in flames of
color, to be lost the next in vague melting
lights. At a dinner given by Sir John
Millais in London Miss Bislahd wore a
gown of this beautiful crape, and the
great artist was enthusiastic in his ad
miration of the fabric, which he had
never before seen.—New York.Ledger.
Women's laundry Work Costs.
"Why do you charge me twenty-five
cents for 'doing up' this shirt waist?" in
dignantly inquired a lady of a clerk in a
west side laundry.
"Because, ma'am, that's what every
body has to pay," ho answered.
"But. sir. I only srive twelve cents for
naving my husband's shirts 'done up,'
and I don't expect to pay more for this
work."
Further argument ensued, but the
clerk's position in the matter was im
pregnable, and the lady finally paid the
bill, after threatening to have her laun
dering done elsewhere. She left the of
fice in a very feverish state of mind.
The clerk told me that since women
and girls began wearing men's attire
work in the laundries had greatly in
creased, but the profits were only slightly
augmented. This was because more
time was consumed in laundering this
new fangled women's apparel, and they
, hoped to induco the ladies t<> discard it
| by putting np the prices, on tho score of
economy, if for nothing elso. Tho laun
drymen did not care to toil gratuitously,
even if they were accominodatino
