The field of the trained nurse is i?-r
naps one of the least, if uot the least,
fcireuuUfCribcd < .f the many avocations
open to wuim n. The qualifications are,
however, of a serious nature, so much
so that it tal.es to its ranks only the
Wist intelligent, and even intelligence
must be supplemented by such grace of
smind and spirit thai tbo average woman
As not only unfitted for the field, hut
;the field itself is of ncritical disposition
kind regards tho picking und choosing ol
its workers ns itv own prerogative.

aaid to me one pleasant morning lately
"As editor and proprietor of the magi

Co-operative Housekeepings
A party of six women dwell in co?
operative domestic harmony in East Sov
'ontoouth street. There are tltroo rausi
cilUIS?viz, a piauist, a violinist and a
singer; then there are n stenographer, a
journalist and a house decorator. They
live handsomely in mi apartment that
rents for $l5? |>er month. With all liv?
ing expenses included in the sum total,
including gas. fuel and servant's hire,
tin- lost costing ???.'?) lHT month, it costs
each woman exactly $8 per week. The
Bnme comfort and general accommoda?
tion could uot lie secured in a boarding
house I'm' loss than $20 a week lor each
one. A musician is not considered a de?
sirable boarder, moreover, at any price.
Eight dollars a week in this case pays
for tho besl food the market allows in
its season. It substitutes fruit for meat
at breakfast and supplies cream lor cof
foo and oatmeal and hot roils from the
l aker. Noon luncheon consists of scram?
bled eggs, leu, sauce, cold meat or salad
for variation. Six o'clock dinner con?
sists of soup, a roast, a vegetable, in
addition to potatoes, a salad and coffee,
cheese, and crackers. When salad is not
in the menu, dessert is.snpplied.
Meals are always delicately and dain?
tily served, a feature which is not ob?
served sufficiently in the hoarding house
to suit ihe artistic feminine epicure.?

people of Now Orleans on the suffrage
question. She suid some bright things,
as, for example:
"In Wyoming women have had the
