although your mod
ern beauty is quite
different in feature
(from that saucy
miss. This is be
eaus the type oi
'beauty in woman
changed hsa re-
nsakably In the last 2o years. Gradu
ally the very points that used to be
be considered the most essential have
altered or been lost eight of in the
heightened appreciation for others.
Tske eyes, for instance. Large eyes are
beautiful, of course, yet the average
pretty woman of today has not large
eyes. She has bright, clear or steady
ones, bnt tbey are seldom the big, round
child-eyes that the girl of a while ago
must have had to be thought pretty.
A last analysis of the pretty woman of
today leads one to suspect that the
general education of women and the
■pecial education of the college girl has
had something to de with the new
idea of beauty. The second picture in
Tht college bred type.
tbis column is of a woman who was the
belle of ber class at college and wbo,
daring ber past asason, has been ac
knowledged a superbly beautiful
woman. The smooth, plump neck and
rippling nair are there', but no picture
can do full justice to her eyes with their
sparkle of wit and challenge that daz
zles yon into an acknowledgment, of
tbeir beauty when they meet yours.
The mouth bas charmed by a thousand
curves of shifting change, each making
her more adorable than the lest, each a
challenge to discount ber beauty if you
dare. The beauty of her face is potent
aglow witb health, sympathy, passion,
vitality and Intelligence. A beauty be
yond question, and as surely one of a
new type within the past score of years.
Another woman, older tban the beau
ty of 20 years back ever wae, is acknowl
edged as a type of today's loveliness.
She is 30, at least, which in Itself is a
new idea. Her copper-colored bair, a
mass of glossy wavings, is caught np
back after a manner all ber own, and
its profusion emphasizes the extreme
delicacy oi her features. The nose is
dainty enough in its faintly Roman out
line. The lips are firm, a little thin,
bnt even in the picture ready to speak
words tbat sparkle. The eyes, again,
are not large, but are at once keen,
shadowed and well arched by fine eye
brows. She ia essentially a beauty of
today, nervous, delicately and vividly,
colored, with the full throat and
fine skin whicb are now a requisite.
She possesses, besides, that intensity
whicb is hardly passion, tbe warmth
which is not quite fire, the alertness
tbat is more wit tban intellect, and tbe
spirituality that is after all not soul.
The face ie not at all the face of the girl
Just passed, yet in it are some of the
same characteristics. This pictured
face, too, is evidently hardly as eloquent
of its own beauty as is the radiant
original. Modern beauty is a thing of
sparkle, mood, change, glow and of
many other things, whicb, some how,
do not picture themselves, save on the
Older than KKM OllCt permitsihtf.
Another face among the accepted tynee,
that of a very young girl, as shown in
the fourth illustration, Ucks the
tboughtfnlness of tbe first face end the
experience of the second. It is ch!hi,
almost placid, with tne Btrangn element |
of self poise that is In every such face i
as a foundation for its cairn. The ears
are large, and so are ii,ose in tbe other
picture, Tbe beauty of long ago bad-
delicate, shell-like ears, almost too
small to hear with. The modern beanty
has good sized ears. The hair is again
beautiful, rippling and with an appear
ance of being upright just at the
roots and so prettily free. It is ar
ranged with the individuality that all
these beauties show in the management
of tbeir tresses. It seems just tbe sort
of hair to turn loosely irom her smooth
forehead, and all women of this
type bave smooth foreheads. Non*

of them has o blankor undeveloped one.
Again, tbe eyes are not large bnt are
steady and clear, while the lids that
shadow the eyes in the second face are
almost defiant in their steady level.
This third face lacks ths brilliancy of
either oi the other. The lips are a lit
tle fuller, and one needs to be told that
the skin is clear and brilliant, and the
lips riotous with changeful smiles and
wistfulness, to realize that tbe face is a
beautiful one, and one tbat gives promise
of even more loveliness. It is different
from the other two, but fine coloring,
steady eyes and mobility of feature are
here, and self poise, which should
never be lacking.
The most dengerous modern beauty is
the ugly belle. She seems absolutely
irresistible. She suits all tastes, she
rules the men unchallenged, and not
until you see her face pictured and dis
cover what havoc she has made among
your admirers do yon realize with a
shock that she is downright ugly. Sho
has the pretty hair our belles always
have, and it is tossed up as only tbey
dare to handle it. The forehead is so
high that tbe fringe is imperative. The
eyes, her most irresistible feature as
every one admits, are distinctly smaH,
and tbe brows above are well marked.
Tbis girl's admirers will tell you that
her beauty dazzles tbem, tbnt her
lips quiver and scorch red with
! the wit and fire of her speech, and
that no such eyes ever dazzled a man
I blind. Somehow, tbe preise of wit anil
dazzling qualities always comes clo c
upon acknowledgement of a beauty. It
i is hard to choose from these four typical
faces. They are all so different, yet so
oddly alike. In tbem all are health,
self poise, brilliant wit and much more
than the mere cbarm of sex. Bn. :
points will characterize the face of every
mode in beauty that you turn your daz
zled eyes upon.
The ugly type—to women.
To do tbe hair in tbe prettiest way for
tbe present fashions in evening wear,
part off tho front hair from the forehead
straight around the bead, so that a
fringe falls over the ears and the nape
of tbe neck. This fringe is very thin at
the forehead and a little thicker at tbe
tompleß and from there around the head.
It is cut very Bhort across tbe forehead
and curled in tiny little corkscrews,
whicb, if you prefer, may be
combed out soft. At the temples
the fringe is made into two
curls, which bang well down on
the cheek; tbe next two over the ears
hang a little longer, falling to tbe side
of tbe neck, the rest graduate prettily,
the three or four at the back hanging
even and short. Above these at tbe
beck the bair is drawn into a round coil
which extends till it is even with the
top of the head. A tiny band passes
around the head just above the short
forehead fringe, under tbe temple and
ear cnrls, and again over tbe curls at tbe
back of tbe neck. This proves the side
curls real, but it is so slight a detail that
if you like to buy a bandeau witb tbe
whole set attached you may do so, and
no one will notice tbe difference unless
the thing should slip down over your
pretty little nose. This fashion of the
bair iB not co trying as tbat of drawing
the hair from a centre part, and the lit
tle bang in front gives tbe youthful ef
fect we all like, while quaintnees and
demurenees are suggested by the side
curls. These side locks are most gentle
to hollow cheeks.
Itever effects, deep frills and berthas
are much in vogue, and the terms Beem
almost interchangeable and applied to
any elaboration of effect about the
shoulders and bust. A popular finish
for a low neck gown is a bertha of lace,
standing well out over the shoulders
and straight across along its lower edge ;
no sleeves ebow. Tbe rage for ruffles is
a regular delirium. Whole dreßßes are
made of tliem, a skirt being composed of
as many as 24, all alike in depth and set
one above another, and lapping the

How Suaaa B. Anthony nnd BillSaMSi Cndy

"If yon want to know bow moth or and
Susan B. Anthony act together," said
Mrs. Lawrence, Mrs. Elisabeth Cady
Stanton's daughter, 'Til give yon a let

writing their old history of woman's suf
The letter was written in 1885, bnt
Mrs. Lawrence asserts that things are
much the same now aa then. It was
dated at Tenafly, N. J., where Mrs.
Stanton was living.
"Mother and Susan," wrote Mrs. Law
rence, "are busy all day and far into tha
night on volume 8 of "The History of
Woman Suffrage.' As our house faces
the sonth, the sunshine streams in all
day. In the center of a large room, £0
by 28, with an immense bay window,
hard wood floor and open fire, beside a
substantial office desk with innumerable
drawers and doors, there, vis-a-vis, sit
the historians, surrounded with manu
scripts and letters from Maine to Louisi
ana. In the center of the desk are two
inkstands and two bottles of mucilage,
to say nothing of divers pens, pencils,
scissors, knives and 'erasers.
"As these famous women grow in

dip their pens in the mucilage and their
brushes in the ink. These blunders
bring them back to the facts of history,
where indeed they should be if that
blessed word finis is ever to be written.
Sub rosa, it is as good as a comedy to
watch these souls from day today. They
start off pretty well in the morning.
They are fresh and amiable. They write
page after page with alacrity; they laugh
and talk, poke tho fire by turns and ad

desk. Everything is harmonious for a

the most illegible, disorderly manu
scripts I ever beheld suddenly the whole
literary sky is overspread. From the
adjoining room I hear a hot dispute.

journals neatly piled in a corner, are
overhauled and tossed about in the n.ost
"Susan is punctilious on dates, moth
er on philosophy, but each contends aa
stoutly in the other's domain as ii it
were her own particular province. Some
times these disputes run so high that
down go the pens, and one sails out of
one door and one out of the other. And
then, just as I have made up my mind
that this lieauriful friendship of 40 years
has at last terminated, I gee tbem, arm
in arm, walking down the hill to a seat
where we often go to watch the sun set
in all his glory.
"When they return, they go straight
to work where they left off as if nothing
had happened. I never hear another
word on that point. The one that was
unquestionably right assnmes it, and the
other silently concedes the fact. They
never explain, nor apologise, nor shed
tears, nor make up, as other people do,
but figuratively speaking jump over a
stone wall at one bound and leave the
past behind them."
As Mrs. Lawrence said, things are
much the same now with the two friends
as they were eight years ago, when Mrs.
Stanton was only threescore years and
ten and Miss Anthony was not yet out of
her sixties. They live in peace and har
mony still. Miss Anthony is still the au
thority on dates, and Mrs. Stanton still
writes the "state papers." They are still
criticised and sometimes ridiculed, but
they are too strong in their own convic

erance to do otherwise than laugh about

work than ever. To the constitutional
convention of next May is to be present

women over 21 years of age asking that
the word male be expunged from the
constitution. At any rate, that is the
work planned by these two friends.—

Queen Victoria Smiled.
Queen Victoria recently went to a pho
tograph gallery at Newport, isle of
Wight, "to be taken." Just as She was
posed the local mayor entered with a
bouquet, which he was about to present
in a prepared speech. He got stuck fn
his lines —became so amazingly flustered
tbat her royal highness laughed, and
just then the photographer snapped his
camera. The portrait, with the face
lighted up with a smile, gives altogether
a different impression of tbe queen. Her
laughs are so rare that events have been
reckoned from tbem heretofore. This is
said to be the only picture taken of the
queen when she was smiling or laugh
ing.—New York Press.
I remember wben I thought it un
worthy of Lucy Stone to speak in public
as she did, because I thought it was hard
ly proper for a woman to be so conspic
uous. I speak of this because it pains
me to think that any woman should ever
have looked askance at one who was so
great and noble a laborer for the inter
ests of her sex. But I was only one of
many, and we should be thankful that
our horizon has broaden od to its present
circumference. If Mrs. Stone were to
start again today she would not find, as
sbe did then, that nearly the whole world
was against her.—Julia Ward Howe.
Writer and Musician.
Miss Hildegard Werner is the latest
musician to appear before Queen Vic

in Paris. She is a journalist and writes
musical news for several papers. King
Oscar of Sweden hae just conferred on
her a gold medal. —Stockholm Letter.

A Philatelist Wbo Is Working to Obtain
For Himself a Cork Leg.
Fred Ullrich, a young had of Sycamore,
nig., ia collecting 1,000,000 canceled post
age stamps. Some time ago Fred, while
returning home one evening, was attacked
by a fieroe mastiff. Tbe animal came
near lolling the boy, bnt it was finally
driven off by some citizens who came up.
The dog had bitten tbe boy so badly that
one leg had to hp amputated, and on arm
was rendered useless. The Ullrichs are
not rich, so the boy adopted a plan by
which he is to secuve for himself a cork
leg. The leg has been promised him if
he succeeds in collecting 1,000,000 can
celed postage stamps.
The other day young Ullrich received
by express a bag weighing 100 pounds,
filled with canceled postage stamps and
bits of paper torn from the envelopes.
They had been sent by Miss Alice Smith,
a clerk in the employ of Hibbard, Spen
cer, Bartlett & Co. Miss Smith had seen
an advertisement ef the boy's purpose in
a newspaper, and she wrote him to in
quire as to the truth in the case. The
reply she received was satisfactory, and
she began collecting stamps. The large
bag received tbe other day by the boy
came from her. Miss Smith gets all the
envelopes from the heavy mail received
by the firm. Yesterday afternoon she
was tearing stamps off of envelopes, of
which she had a large number. While
doing this work she explained how she
had become interested in the boy's case
and had resolved to help bim.
"It's not so much work, and it will
benefit him," she said. "It didn't take
very long to collect those tbat I sent
him, and I may send some more." —Chi-
HOW HE WAS CURED.
A Highly Dramatic Epliode That Led a
Drunkard to Swear Off.
Not long ago a prominent Main street
merchant was a confirmed drunkard.
He loved liquor so madly that he was a
misery to himself and every one about
him, especially to his young and hand
some wife. One night recently he de
cided to commit suicide. He told his
wife about it, and she was so miserable
that she said if he was to end his exist
ence she wanted to die too. The man
proceeded to a drugstore in tbe western
part of the oity," near bis residence, and
purchased 20 cents' worth of chloral. He
returned home and divided tbe poison
equally, and while they were in tbe no
tion eaoh swallowed the drug.
The young wife walked to the bed like
a brave woman or coward, as you please,
and laid herself down to die. It was
different with the husband. As soon as
the poison bad been taken he began to
regret the step. In a few minutes he be
came frantic and rushed off to the drug
store where he had procured the chloral
and told the druggist the situation. He
was relieved, with some trouble, of the
poison, but they had a hard time in sav
ing the wife. She finally recovered, how
ever, and they get along happily together
now, as the experience caused the man
to stop drinking. This is a true story.
Only three persons in Louisville know
the details, and all were sworn to secre

All the trains on tbe District railway
will soon bo.provided with electric wad
ing lamps, to be worked upon the "pen
ny-in-the-slot" principle. Preparations
are so far advanced that the wiring of
the carriages is nearly completed. About
2,500 lamps will be required. They are
very ingeniously constructed. A penny
dropped into the box will set a small
clock in motion for half an hour, during
which time the current will tie switched
on, and the lamp will throw its concen
trated rays direct upon the book or news
paper of the passenger who pays for it
and nobody else. Bhould any mischiev
ous person tamper with the apparat us an
electric warning will be sounded in the
guard's van. Each lamp will be of 20
candle power, and there will be four in
each compartment. The current is de
rived from a battery, which will supply
four lamps. No date can be assigned for
the commencement of tbis special sys
tem of illumination, but it is probable
that it will be inaugurated some time
this month.—London Telegraph.
A Niuety-nin* Tears' Sentence.
Frank Moore, a notorious burglar, was
last month sentenced in St. Louis to 99
years' imprisonment in the Missouri pen
itentiary at Jefferson City. He is other
wise known as Bart McGuire and has
given much trouble to the police in all
the large cities of the west. His present
sentence, which is unprecedented in St.
Louis, was bestowed under tbe habitual
criminal law, an old act which had been
allowed to grow rusty upon the statute
books and had been almost forgotten.
It provides for a sentence, upon a second
conviction, of not less than 10 years nor
more than 99. Moore is 48 years old and
says he was born in England.—St. Louis

Bertha Pruett, aged 20 years, laughed

one of whom, a young man, is noted as a

Pruett into a violent fit of laughing,
which lasted some minutes, when it sud
denly changed to a cry of pain, and she
