American Women In London Revolt of tbe Bine Grass Balle "Women Learning; Oratory A Few Seams Are STo-tv the Fad. Miss Helen Long, second daughter f the secretary of the navy, will spend the winter in Colorado owing to pul monary trouble. Miss Lung's friends assert that she contracted the cold which seems to have been the beginning of her de cline at the dinner served on the Dol phin, given about the middle of Feb ruary. The weather was inclement, and the exposure to the strong river breeze proved very disastrous. 'Miss Long spent the day on the boatj which was anchored just off the navy yard, superintending the details of the ban quet President and Mrs. McKInley were the guests of honor, and Vice President and Mrs. Hobart, with all the cabinet families, were present During the war Miss Long was a hospital nurse. Long before hostili ties broke out she announced her In tention of becoming a nurse should the trouble over Cuba result In blood shed. Ib order to equip herself for mSS HELET LONG. this service she went to Baltimore and entered the medical school of Johns Hopkins university. Her example aroused the spirit of patriotism in her friends,, and Miss Dorothy Reid, daugh ter of Whitelaw Reid; Miss Mabel Aus tin, daughter of the former governor of Minnesota, and Miss Mabel Simls also entered the university to prepare them selves for hospital nurses. As soon as war was declared Miss Long and her friends volunteered their services to the government They were assigned to the naval hospital in Brooklyn. Here Miss Long won the love of the sick and wounded who ar rived in the hospital ship Solace from Santiago. Miss Long lived In tbethos pital and devoted her entire time eas ing the pain of the brave fellows who returned from tbe front helpless. Miss Long made many friends during her residence in Washington. Deep sorrow is expressed at the sad news of her alarming illness. She is a quiet girl, with more love for books than for social amenities. She has. gracious manners and a cordial ad dress and will be sincerely regretted by the other cabinet hostesses. It is not likely that the family of the secre- j mey wanted to. The women them tary of the navy will take part in the selves tnev7 that something was wrong social season owing to Miss Helen's a had a snrewd ,d6a as fo what condition. This will make another va cancy In the list of official hostesses. American "Women In London. The London Daily Telegraph pays the following pretty tribute to Ameri can women in London: "Never perhaps has the Amerfcan woman been more prominent In our midst than this season. Socially, of course, she has been a factor of Im portance in many recent years, and it Is hard to Imagine a London season In which on Important part would not be played by the Duchess of Marlbor ough, Lily Duchess of Marlborough, the Duchess of Manchester, Lady Ran dolph Churchill, Mrs. Choate, Mrs. Ronalds, Mrs. Mackay, Mrs. Bradley Martin, Mrs. Ogden Goelet and many more whose foremost position in Lon don society is unchallenged. "But the feature which seems to have passed almost unnoticed and to characterize the charming transatlan tic invasion would seem to be that the daughter of the stars and stripes is entering much more into our every day life. No longer is she exclusive to tbe aristocratic ranks, no longer must we 'think of her as associated with millionaires alone. She has come to .us in her professional vocations; she has come without unlimited dol lars as the wife or daughter of the solid, prosperous man of learning or commerce and-In that capacity has be gun to permeate what one may call English home circles. And with her frank, unconventional ways, her bright fund of talk and her hoaest capacity for enjoyment ordinary folks are as glad to welcome her to their midst as those of more exalted station, hailed their compeers.

Instead they found them Interested in the same phases of philanthropy, in the same practical and useful movements cs themselves and w"h an unvarying de sire to promote friendly feelings be tween the two great branches of the Anglo-Saxon race." Revolt of the Bine Grass Brflc Most unusual of any club wnfth has yet been beard from Is that which lately has been formed In Louisville. Twenty-two vomen, and report says that they are all young and pretty, have farmed themselves into a so ciety for the promulgation of the lat est of woman's rights the right to be ugly. They do not mean by this that they are going to cut off their noses or otherwise disfigure themselves, but simply that they are no longer going to dress or demean themselves to please man. "The day," they recently announced, "when we can say to man that we don't care whether he likes us or not that day we divide the woild with him." To the mere man this seems to be only the, feminine way of saying that the day she ceases to be a woman she becomes as good as a man, and if all women were thought so man might well be terrified. As it is young wom en probably will think, twice before they follow" the fair Kentucklans' ex ample, lor, after all, the women who remained women would have it all their own way. Every month the so ciety meets and dlscusses'the progress that has been made In their fight for .women's rights. Any woman who takes an oath that she never will "be guilty of any of the arts'1 in vogue for attracting man's smiles and approba tion Is eligible for membership. Matri mony, however, Is ,not looked upon with disfavor. Provided a woman can win a husband without resorting to any of the arts to make herself at tractive she Is perfectly at liberty to do so. The only stipulation ihat is im posed upon the members of the new t-jciety is that the word "obey" be left out of the marriage ceremony. Only single women are eligible for membership, and, strange to say, there are no old molds or widows in the club. New York Press. Women Learning: Oratory. The latest fad among the Chicago clubwomen is extempore speaking. When women's clubs took on such a boom just after the World's fair, am bitious women soon discovered that a knowledge of parliamentary law was a sure road to honors at the hands of their fellow members. After a time it "became evident that to have influence in the world of clubs a woman must have at least a fair acquaintance with the mysteries of Roberf and Cushing and Shattuck. So pretty soon every woman was more "of less deep In" these mysteries. But these brilliant parliamentarians discovered that there was still some thing lacking. They knew the law, out tney were an at sea in a gGoo, nve ly club fight Strangely enough, this was because they could not talk. Of course they were not actually tongue tied, but they could not-get-up on their TftA ! c-it- Tiifi- -f-TiiiT nntnrl n n matter was, nut aianot know now to go to work to remedy matters, ' Now, however, the remedy Is at hand. A bright young "woman "fscov ered that they needed instruction in extemporaneous speaking, and the wo- uieii paiuaiucuuuiaus iwuicuiumjy rtu" ognlzed In her a long felt want A 'She organized classes, and the women go and are taught how to talk ten min utes at a stretch. It is said that cur tain lectures, dress and stories about the speaker's children are barred. Oth erwise everything goes from Homer to the best way to cook beans. A Feir Seams Are tbe Fad. Tailors and modistes, who are, as a rule, so scornful of one another? have come together in a common cause. They have a new and lively Interest In life a mission, as It were and the ob ject of their combined efforts Is the total extermination of seams. Fewer seams are used this season than ever before, and even tbe one or' two that are positively necessary are carefully concealed under strapping or trimming of one sort or another. Cutting has developed Into a fine art and tbe tailor or modiste who can so curve, stretch or 'twist a piece of fabric and mold It into sheathlike covering- for a feminine form without tbe aid of a single seam Is considered something higher than an ordinary genius. Seamless skirts are made with bias backs. It sounds almost Incredible. And more than that, they flare around the lower edge. There Is positively no front goro. One side of the front is lapped over the other and buttoned straight down, or. If buttons are not desired, the lap and lower edge of the skirt are strapped and stitched. Tight fitting, seamless bodices are wom with these skirts. Of course the shoulder seam can nev- er be dispensed with, nor the one seam that joins the sleeve, but the body of the -waist Is cut in one piece. The cen ter of the bad: is laid on a straight fold of the cloth, which Is so curved in cutting that it fits like a glove, the only darts that are allowed being two tiny ones cut in from the arm holes at the bust line. Then the fronts are lapped over and fastened down on a line with the fastening of the skirt Elmira Telegram. A Scheme That "Works. "Accidentally I have tilt on. a good scheme to take advantage cf. the de partment stores," said a matron at breakfast to her husband recently. "1 think," she added, humorously, "that I'll contribute it to the woman's page of my newspaper In return for the "beauty sermonettes,' the 'bits on beau ty building' and the 'sermons on skin foods' which have made me the wreck you see. The scheme is to have an ac count at a store and then go and buy eight or nine yards of silk or cloth or whatever you need and order the pur chase sent to yon C. O. D. When it arrives, you say to tbe driver indig nantly: 'Sea here, my good man, this Is a mistake. I have an account you know, and nothing should be delivered C. O. D. to me.' The man answers that he can't help it; must obey orders and ilther get tbe money or take the goods back with him. You retort. Take them, then, and keep them!" And early next morning you appear at the rem nant counter of the store. There in variably one will find the goods that she bought, reduced at least one-half In value on account of having been cut, and ail one has to do is to buy them back again and count the gain. On Monday I bought for 3 three yards of silk for a waist I sent the silk back because it had come C. O. D. instead of charged, and on Tuesday I picked It up again at the remnant counter for $1.50. Of course I 'didn't do this thing inten tionally. There are women, though, who would." Pittsburg dispatch. One of Ohio's Xoted "Women. Dr. Myra K. Merrick, tlje first wo man physician in Ohio and one of the first in the United States, died In Cleve land last week at the age of 74. At the beginning of her career she met with great opposition. But her skill, her serene confidence In herself that was far removed from vanity and her dogged persistence triumphed In due time, and for many years she stood shoulder to shoulder with the best phy sicians In Cleveland. She overstep ped most of them in a pecuniary way, and her practice was largely among the wealthy and exclusive class that gave her a large income. She was born in Hinkley, England, in 1825, but she was brought by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Eing, to this country when but 1 year old. The family lo cated near Boston, and at the age of S she began working in the cotton cloth mills of the east It had been a boast of hers that since that age she had earned her own living. The family came to Ohio is 1841, and she decided to enter the medical profession, but the doors of medical colleges were clos ed to women, and It was not until 1852 that she succeeded In securing her diploma. Growth of "Woman's Hand. The size of a woman's glove Is not al together conclusive evidence of ibe size of her hand, but if the testimony of glove dealers can be accepted' wo men's hands are getting larger year by year, and golf, tennis, rowing and driving must be held responsible for It Glove dealers say there Is a bigger call for gloves of a large size than for merly and that they have to get rid of their smaller sizes at bargain sale. Not only this, but athletics have made an Inroad on the sale of gloves, for the athletic girl nowadays eschews them altogether, except in the win ter, and even in town fashionable wo men arc seen going abroad ungloved. Besides this an artist asserts that the athletic and outdoor life that girls lead nowadays has totally destroyed the form and shape of the hand. He declares women's hands are tanned and reddened-and stretched out of all proportion, and golf receives the great est amount of blame for this, although the rest of the list of fashionable sports share the blame. Fencing For "Women. Those who have seen women who are expert fencers recognize that It Is an extremely graceful amusement Fencing bids fair to be as popular as cycling, and a great many ladies have been taking lessons during the season. No woman with a weak physique would have any chance. Strength of leg is absolutely necessary, as well as of wrist, and much activity. But it is a most admirable exercise, improving the figure and developing the muscles, and it is quite worthy to be made an art It is not only"" physical strength that Is required for this amusement but keenness of the eye and dexterity of the wrist, and these are quite wo manly. Quickness of perception and action are necessary. r Fashion as to -Weddings. In London and Paris some very fash ionable weddings have recently taken place at 4 o'clock In the afternoon! Three of the most fashionable brides In New York have had no bridesmaids. Perhaps this was due to the fact that there were no bridesmaids at the wed ding of Miss Julia Dent Grant and Prince Cantacuzene. There is as much a fashion in bridesmaids as there is in floral decorations and the cut and shape of the wedding gown. Engage ments have only been announced a short time before the wedding, and this Is the custom, especially It the bride has been out several seasons and has been a social success. It Is proposed in France to estab lish a court of justice run by women and for women, to which may be car ried all those cases concerning, which the most learned men know npthlng. This 'will relieve a man judge, for in stance, from determining questions as to fit In suits brought by dressmakers against their clients, and It ought to do away also with much expert testi mony in such coses.

A rumor got about in a village in Russia, not far fiom the German fron tier, that the corpse of a woman who had recently been burled had turned In the coffin. Everybody In the village not only believed the rumor, but ascribed the prevailing drought as the cause. A village council was held, and It was de cided that the husband of the woman should have the coffin opened and the body replaced In Its original position. The husband, however, promptly re fused, and nothing could persuade him to yield to the unanimous -frish of his fellow villagers, whereupon the latter took the matter In their own bands and went to the churchyard to dig up and open the coffin. To their great surprise the body lay In its original position. Their astonishment was not lessened when the legal authorities appeared on the scene and opened an inquiry, with a view of imposing punishment for the desecraton of the grave. The whole neighborhood was pos sessed with the idea that newly buried persons were to blame for the preva lence of the dry weather, for in anoth er village, not far off, a grave was opened and the coffin unscrewed to pour water on the corpse. The be nighted peasants of this village were of the opinion that this was the best way to induce the clerk of the weather to supply them with much needed rain. A Sharp Swindler, A fashionable young lady not long ago drove up in a handsome carriage to a private lunatic asylum, situated a few miles from Paris, and requested to see tne proprietor. Her wish being acceded tc, she Informed the doctor that she desired to place her husband under his care to see If a cruel mania, under which he labored viz, "that he had lost a large quantity of jewels" could not be removed. After some hesitation the doctor con sented, and the lady drove away di rectly to a Jeweler's In Paris and se lected jewels to the value of several thousand francs and requested one of the shopmen to go with her In her car riage to procure the money for the goods she had taken. She drove with him to the asylum, and, arriving there, he was shown into a room. The lady then sought the doctor, told him of the arrival of her husband, and getting into her carriage again drove away. The rest may be Imagined but the poor fellow was confined several days before It was found they both had been "6old." The lady was never heard of after. Knew Ills Time. "A ragged boy about 10 years old," says a correspondent of the Detroit Free Press, "sat on the fence lnfront of an Arkansas cabin, and fust as I came up his mother came to the ddor and called 'Moses!' in a loud voice. The boy did not look around, and after a minute she called 'Abraham V He made no move, and I was asking him how far it was to Greenville .when she put out her head and called 'Luke! He did not appear to hear and had an swered me that It was seven miles when the mother raised her voice still higher and shouted 'Mark!' " 'Your mother is calling you," I said, as he paid no attention. " 'No, not me,' he replied. " 'But who, then?'" 'My brothers over In the woods. She's called for Moses, Abraham, Luke and Mark. She'll call for Phlletus, Jeremiah, Judas and Abel, and If they don't come she'll yell out for Ananias, and that'll mean me, and I'll jump.' " Persians "Love Mirrors. Persia Is the Ideal place for a looking glass peddler to live and move and have his trade, for the Persians are as fond of the shiny reflectors as are sav ages of beads. Every year Immense numbers of mirrors of all sorts and kinds are shipped into the country of the shah. Germany, France and Bel gium furnish most of the supply. In addition to having a fondness for see ing themselves as looking glasses show them the Persians know no more pleas ing parlor decorations than brilliant mirrors in gilt frames. Some of the Persian drawing rooms are so com pletely hemmed In by great pier glass es that visitors- often become bewil dered and try to walk through the glasses down the long aisle that seems to stretch In front So bumped noses, knees and toes are not uncommon in that land of oriental splendor and mystery.

The simple plan of bathing the eyes with cold water every njght at bed time and the first thing on getting up In the morning will make the eyes both clear and bright. The applica tion of cold water causes the blood In the numerous little blood vessels which Burroupd the eyes to circulate freely, and In consequence the eyes will be come stronger and brighter. Tea drinking was regarded as one of tbe feminine vices nf a hundred years Ago.

A Handkerchief Trick. To perform a simple trick you will aeed a round stick, about 12 or 18 inches long. Insert a needle In one end of It, so that about three-quarters of the pointed end projects. Hold the stick upright and throw a handker chief on to It so that the center alights on the uppermost end where the needle Is. When the stick is twirled rapidly between the palms of the hand, the handkerchief will stand out as If it were a piece of card, and, as the needle does not show, you can pretend that the handkerchief adheres owing to the magnetism of the stick.

Lrtest Shade ot Hair. Titian bronze, tbe new shade of hair. Is still too much of a novelty to be common, but who has not seen t and not longed for tresses of that wonder ful hue? It is too expensive an opera tion to ever become the popular shade, and no amateur at hair dyeing can ac complish the desired result, so tho for tunate ,few who possess locks of Titian bronze need have little fear of many duplicates. The art of hair dyeing has mode tremendous strides within the last few years, and there are many artists in that line whose work defies criticism. i E2.Q another word for detection, but Ameri cans, as a class, have not taken kindly to that sort of thing, and the remark that "she dyes her hair" is still consid ered by many as a term of reproach. The Princess cf Wales has a variety of wigs, which she changes with htr toilets. On her return from a drive or reception another gown, with Its' accompanying wig, is in readiness, and that her locks are red today and brown tomorrow in nowise disconcerts the princess.

Outside of one's own house every one should be careful in the matter of mak ing Introductions. A lady at a friend's house may safely Introduce two per sons whom she herself knows well. A man makes introductions more care fully, and both men and women must first If possible, get the consent of the persons to be Introduced. An excep tion to this rule, which hardly needs to be noted, comes when three or four persons are thrown together, some of whom are strangers to all but one of the others. In this case to save awk wardness a simple Introduction should be made. Some persons of genial dis position feel It necessary to Introduce all persons in their Immediate neigh borhood at any social function. It Is needless to say that 'this wholesale In troducing Is" entirely a mistlike and that those who engage In It usually make themselves very obnoxious to their acquaintances. A woman has always more freedom than a man in making introductions, and a man, for example, will hardly offer to Introduce two ladles to each other unless he knows them both very well.
