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,

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
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

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

the Duchess of Manchester, Lady Ran

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

she has come without unlimited dol

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
"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.

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
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

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-

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
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.
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

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 GreTrsome Scperatltlon.
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

fond of the shiny reflectors as are sav

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

Children are, sometimes tired of be

Never make fun of old age, no mat

upon the aged head.
"Never tell or listen to the telling of
filthy stories. Cleanliness in word
and act is the sign manual of a true
gentleman. You cannot handle filth
without becoming fouled.
Never cheat or be unfair In your
play. Cheating is contemptible any:
where at any age. Your play s&ould
strengthen, not weaken, your charac
ter. Never call" anybody bad names, no
matter what anybody else calls you.
You cannot throw mud and keep your
bands clean.
Never be cruel. You have no right
to hurt even a fly needlessly. Cruelty
Is the trait of a bully, kindness the
mark of a gentleman.
Never make fun of a. companion be

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.

The Princess cf Wales has a variety

that her locks are red today and brown

princess. All such matters are regu

Caution In Introduction.
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. Leah

'Women Bead theXlst.
The proportion of women among cen
tenarians is nearly twice that of men.
A group of people cited by one of the
most careful and least credulous of the
numerous authors of works on tha
subject shows that out of 66 persons
who were 100 years old and upward
there were 43 women and 23 men. In
London the last census showed 21 cen
tenarians, 5 men to 16 women. Tha
fact that nearly all the centenarians
were poor seems to provejthat the rich
are at some disadvantage in the mat
ter of long life. Of the female cen
tenarians it may be said that the very
nature of their occupations protects
them by keeping them so much In the
house, where they are shielded from
adverse Influence of atmospheric
changes and accidental causes ot
death, to which so many men are sob.

is an Indorsement of Judge Cooler's
proposition that when the law Is silent
respecting qualifications to office it
must "be 'understood that electors ara
