Before commencing operations it is
best to make a list of what is to be
packed, taking good care to run through
the whole of one's requirements for
morning, afternoon, evening and night.
It is not amusing to leave a particular
waistband behind, or the skirt of a
dress; indeed, to jeopardize a whole
holiday of pleasure for want of a little
practical management can scarcely be
looked upon as wisdom. Having made
the list, everything neetsary should be
checked by it, and when all the gar
ments are neatly folded up with plenty
of tissue paper in the folds, then it is
time to begin jutting various things
in the boxes.
Kkir should never be turned inside
out, for they are ruined by the process.
JCaturally enough the ideal manner in
which to pack a dress is to have a skirt
box. in which the skirt will lie full
length without being turned over, but
it does not hurt to double over the
skirt if plenty of paper is used. Bodices
should be stuffed in the sleeves with
paper; they should be laid back down
ward in the box. and then the sleeves
and front may be folded into the best
possible position. Nothing spoils clothes
so badly as to be packed too tightly;
it is ruination of such thin material as
crepon, chiffon, and all the various
transparencies of the day.
Born in 1784, She Is Now the
World's Oldest Inhabitant
Without a Rival.
The claim of Frau Dutkiewitz of
Posen. born on February 2, lTS-l, to be
the oldest woman in the world, is now
contested by Mis. Baba Vasilka, who
was born in May, 17S1, in the little Bul
garian village of Bavels.o, where she
has lived ever since, says the London
Standard. The record of her birth is
preserved in a neighboring monastery
of the Orthedo.v (ireek faith. Baba
Vasilka is the daughter of a peasant,
and worked herself as a peasant until
a comparatively recent date. For more
-than a hundred years she regularly
worked in the fields, according to the
cntom of her country, where women
are employed in all sorts of manual
labor. When she was born Bulgaria
was merely a province of the Turkish
empire, and the entire population
groaned under the tyranny of their
Turkish rulers.
She has seen innumerable wars and
rebellions, massacres and atrocities.
" political crimes and political tragedies.
She recollects with perfect distinctness
events that happened at the end of the
eighteenth century; in fact, the events
of her earlier life, up to the time when
she attained the age of eighty, are far
more distinctly impressed on her mind
than the happenings of the last forty
six years. Baba Vasilka lived through
all the crises of her nation, and no.v
rejoices tr know that Bulgaria is an
independent kingdom.
Her son. Todor, followcig the family
tradition, has also worked in the fields
as a peasant, nearly all his life, but he
has alo taken part in -various wars and
rebellions in the Balkan peninsula. He
is not quite so fresh and vigorous as

she continues, I dislike a large dressing

The English girl, on the whole, com
pares rattier unfavorably" with the
American as far as culture and its ap
plication are concerned, says the Lou
don Times. The country life led by
the majority of English girls renders
them somewhat dull as social factors,
even it it gives tnem mat Knowieage
of nature as a birthright which is de
nied to the town dwelling American
girl. The contrast, in fact, is between
a product of nature with the most ar
tificial of products of the most "up to
date" community.
By nature the American girl is colder
and less emotional than the English
girl, and her attitude toward men is
one of unfailing good comradeship.
Yet at the same time women are con
sidered by the American men as a race
apart, who must be placed upon a
pedestal and propitiated by much at
tention and many offerings. In a sense
the chivalric instinct is almost too
deeply implanted in the American man,
and in many of his ideas concerning
women he is. although he would be
horrified to be told so, curiously me
diaeval. And here again we come upon one of
those deep lines of cleavage which di
vide the American ideals of womanhood
from the English, in England before
marriage the man and the girl see
comparatively little of each other, but
after marriage the common life, is a
necessity, and the woman must be pre
pared to study his interests and to
make them more or less her own. In
America before marriage the man and
the girl are excellent friends and com
rades, enjoying much freedom in their
intercourse; after marriage the two
seem to lead separate lives. The man
is wholly wrapped up in his business
and the "woman when her work in the
house is over devotes most of her en
ergies to the pursuit of social pleas
ures. In fact, they can not really be
said to lead a common life.
To a large extent this is the man's
fault, for he, as a .rule, considers his
wife such a delicate object that she is.
so to speak, put under a glass case and
all cares and worries and even rightful
resxonsibilities are carefully kept from
her. She takes no active part in the
man's everyday life, for she is. often
completely ignorant of his financial
position and is absolutely dependent
upon him for every penny. The idea
of marriage settlement or a definite al
lowance is abhorrent to the American
mind, and yet, when all is said and
done, the American woman, with all
her independence, is the most depend
ent of women, for is not he who holds
the pursestrings, after all, the real
