What Is to become of tho woman over twenty-five years of age? Out In Chicago she haB been told by the management of the Y. W. C. A. that sho Is passe at this ago; that twenty-live Is the deadline between youth and sober maturity, and that sho would have to move on to mako room for younger girls. So It is rous mlt 'em in the Chicago Y. W. C. A., and Capital City women some of them are Indignant. If there Is ono city In tho world where women above twenty-flve are more In evidence than their younger sisters It Is Washington. Tho Govern ment departments are filled with gray haired women who aro earning sub stantial, and. In some Instances, im mense salaries in tho servlco of Undo Sam. Many department stores and other business houses In the Capital boast of women employes who have been with them for moro than a quar ter of a contury, and there are scores of women In Washington's commercial world who confess to fifty. In spite of their youthful appearance and wonder ful activity. In Washington, at least, the old wom an, as she was known to the last gen eration, has disappeared. There aro some people who remember her. Likely as not she wore a cap, and certain it Is that she wore a black Bilk dress for "best" this word covering every social contingent that occurred In the family connection, from a christening to a funeral. This type of old woman usu ally knit very Industriously and kept guard over a very spicy and mysteri ous cooky Jar, only Invading Its tooth somo precincts when some one of her grandchildren had been unusually ami able that day. , She Has Vanished. ' That old-fashioned woman has van ished. Sho has been swept beneath the rising tide of woman's activity in every line, and a new old woman has taken her place, a woman who Is keet.ly alive to what Is going on In the world, a woman who, like Madame Recamler, exercises her ureatcsft attraction at fifty. The world has many women llks Ninon do h, Jincies, wno still retain tholr charm and beauty long after they have passed the half century mark. Neither these women nor their friends regard them passe. They wear beautiful toilettes, hand some Jewels, and are the most sought after when Invitations for social affairs are being sent out. They do not oc cupy bark seats by uny means, and their bright faces, s'ender. well-kept figures ar.u sparkling eyes, give the Ho to those who call them old. Maude Adams hns passed the forty mark and still holds the English-speaking world enthralled by her wonder ful work. Madame Sarah Bernhardt, at sixty nine. Is the wonder of two continents. Cassle Chadwlck. at fifty, turned a trick that set the whole world by tho ears.

One could go on forever giving the names of women who have done gre4 things after they had reached the ag which, according to the management of the Chicago Y. W. C. A.

"broiler" and "chicken" class, and not to take ierlously the woman under twenty-flve. I asked J. L. Leverton what ho thought about the usefulness of tho woman under twenty-five, as compared with the woman who had passed that age. Mr. Leverton Is In a position to speak advisedly upon this subject, for he employs In his G street establish ment a number of women as salespeople and on his clerical force. A woman Is a solid, substantia' busi ness woman at twenty-five," he said. "narnrA ti1a n rr a fthp l thlnklnc of something else, usually of her beau. I certainly not of her business. I flndj It one of the hardest things to break In a young girl to the seriousness of a business career." .... ... Then I asked Miss Izette Jewel, lead ing woman of the Poll Players, what her Ideas were regarding tho recent move of the Chicago Y. W. C. A. and what Bhe thought of the woman of twenty-flve and over. This Is what sho said: "I don't really think that a woman 1106 G St. Cor.

Of course, the young girl Is lovely, and charming, and all that, but she Is like a breath from heaven, sweet to look upon, like a flower In a garden, but of no prac tical value to the .world. "The up-to-dato girl Is beginning to realize the value of her youth, and girls are training themselves to remain young, so It Is difficult to ex actly discern the .actual point between maturity and youth. I am quite posi tive, however, that the dividing line Is not at twenty-flve years. At that age, ono Is Just beginning to realize that the wtorld Ib going around. Certainly the woman of twenty-flve should not be ex cluded from any organization, for that Is Just the time when they are branch ing out and need the assistance of such an organization. Belva Lockwood's Opinion. Belva Lockwood, who Bays she Is the busiest woman In Washington, If not In the whole world, says that women under twenty-flve arc children, the ones over that ago amateur Individuals. To Illustrate the fact that a woman Is as active, and of as much use to herself and to the world at eighty-two as sho Is before the age of twenty-flve, Mrs. Lockwood, who will have reached that ago on her next Dirtnaay anniversary, gavo me her day's program, which be gan yesterday with her breakfast at 8, and closed at 1&. during which time she had read her large volume of mall, had visited tho court room, had been photo graphed with members of White House Chapter of the Woman's Republic, of which she Is the president, had appeared before tho Juvenile Court to recover a misplaced boy, had lunched, had eaten her dinner, and had packed her trunk In readiness for the 8 a. m. train for New York next morning. "Tho action of the Chicago board of governors of the Y. W. C. A. appeals to me as being purely a matter of finance," was the philosophical manner In which Frances Nellson, of tho Columbia Players, saw the subject. "The Y. W. C. A. are doing a wonaer ful work throughout the country." she continued, "and the financial support accorded them makes It impossible for them to meet all demands. "As & consequence the only practical thing to do Is to flrst take care of those who are moBt In need of help and guidance and I would not be at all sur prised to see the necessities of the caso reduce the age limit to twenty unless more funds are placed at the disposal of these worthy Institutions."

That the amendment to the pure food law which Congress has Just passed, designed to wipe out patent medlclno fakes, will not accomplish Its purpose and that It contains a Joker which prac tically nullifies Us Intended effect, was the charge made today by Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, former head of tho Bureau of Chemistry and puro food expert. The amendment was contained In tho Bherley bill which tho President has Just signed and which was adopted by tho Hoilne Committee on lnterstato Commerce after Ions' consideration. "The amendment," said Dr. Wiley, "relates to statements on the labels of medicines, especially tho so-called pa tent or proprietary remedies, respecting claims as to curative effects and pro viding that these claims shall not be false and fraudulent. It Is always more difficult to obtain conviction If you havo to provo two separate crimes against a criminal rather than one. I do not know tho exact difference between what Is false and what Is fraudulent. But Con gress having used these terms, it Is fair to presume that Congress had- In mind some distinct difference between them. Therefore, It is evident that Congress did not intend to punish an offender for raise claims aione or lor fraudulent claims alone. The alertness of tho law yers and the learning of tho court will bo spent In trying to distinguish be tween these two classes of offenses, rather than In bringing the offender to Justice. The sad part of it Is that tho committee had before It a perfectly Just amendment drawn In the Interest of tho public and presented by Judge Richard son, of Alabama. This amendment was drawn In no uncertain terms, and not only covered false and fraudulent claims on the labels, but also the same claims printed on billboards or In advertising matter, thus striking a mortal blow at the fakes and frauds which have been a curse to the public. In obtaining tho passage of the Bherley amendment tho vendors of fraudulent preparations have won a complete victory, and again the Interests of the public have been sac rificed In the guise and under the pre tense of correcting an evil. It appears to me that Congress has only given them another lease on life, and en abled the roots of fraud and corruption to sink deeper Into the soil of protective legislation protective of the vested In terests, but not to the public welfare." Denied Further Delay On New Customs Rate Secretary of the Treasury MacVeagh today refused to grant a request of the Limoges, France, Chamber of Com morce for further delay In putting into effect the new customs rate list on importations of Havlland and Ltmoees chlnaware. which Is effective Septem ber L Limoges manufacturers made a vigorous protest against putting the new rate list Into effect, but the depart ment has decided that It huts given them plenty of time to make their bust ncfB conform with tho now arrange ment. The controversy has not yet reached the stage of diplomatic negotiations. Eruptions in Alaska. Field parties working government sur veys In Alaska have reported a num ber of volcanic eruptions In the Kat mnl mountain section, near Mount St. Ellas. They were In somo cases ac companied by earthquake shocks. Alaskan vegetation was Injured to some extent by the fall of ashes. Coal Lands for Entry. On recommendation of the Interior Department, President Taft has ordered restored to entry 761.631 acres of land In Colorado heretofore Included In coal withdrawals. The lands, lie In North Park, Jackson county, and In Monte zuma county. The withdrawals have only recently been segregated.
