Corely Chenille Coming Back Into Favor. New York, June 28.—1n these days ol fluffy neck fixings, sashes and ecarf ends, no woman need be at a loss tor a srrart toilette. For If she has only one gown, and that a Simplish pompadour silk, a black canvas or a tobacco brown lain©—ali popular materials of the hour— a bunchy, gauzy collet of tulle Intermin gled with artificial flowers, poppies, noses or violets, will make the plain frock out shine Solomon and ills glory. On the other hand. If the one costume is too fine for the occasion, or in a color too startling for the wide eye of day, a collet of black net and velvet ribbon will add Just the touch of sobriety needed. The ultmiate result all depends on the choice of the neck ruche. It must fit the ease, as it were, be sharply contrasting A FEW OF THE OMNIPRESENT BOA9L or else blend graciously in color with the rest of the toilette, end it were better yoiu had never known such things existed than to wear some pitiful piece of this finery after *ts pristine freshness has de parted. To fulfill Its mission, which Is that of glorification, a collet should pre sent always the appearance of immaculate freshness. Otherwise it seems bitterly ageing, as If the wearer as well as her boa had too long breasted the storms of llfeo. Womra May Make Their Own Boas, A hatch of summer collets here pictured will provide excellent hints for the wo man who cannot afford the expensve shop novelties—for these neck ruffles are frightfully dear In the shops—and since their mechanism 1s of the simplest, a fair knowledge of how to baste and box or triple plea is all the handicraft necessary for their construction. Black and white chiffon, French lace, tulle with raw edges, silk muslin and point d'esprit are the chief materials employed in this di rection. Edges are outlined with narrow velvet or satin ribbon, or if lace ts used here the long scarf ends to the throat ruffle will sometimes be striped or barred with tiny ruches of It. producing an effect of richness that would glorify any frock. However, the most delightful of these collets, are daintily simple. One of white brussels net with tucked scarf ends flouncing out some five Inches at the bottom—where the tucking stops, you know—depends entirely on black stitching for ornament. This outlines In nine rows the inch-wide hem of the ruffle and that of the ends, which In the ap proved fashion fall below the knees. An other very smart collet seen in a Fifth avenue shop was of scarlet tulle, with edges of ruffle and ends left raw, the Utter folded In long, loose pleats, and oomftig almost to the feet. The ruche part otf this was In Itself a creation. It wee much wider at the back than front and. doubled to stand out like some im mense. strange caterpillar. Only a lit tle more than the crown of the head could be seen over It from the rear. "Ob. yes." said the dazzling creature Who seas showing off this bewildering, but simple confection, "it Is from Paris, of course. But only Frenchwomen know the value of chic simplicity, so American ladles think my beautiful boa expensive because it has no trimming. See how he crossed the waier!" And she showed “a proper boa box." a pasteboard coffln of almost human length, with tissue pa per Inner walls and a curve at one end to accommodate the caterpillar, and certain ly ISS did not appear dear after this, for It was a mansion spacious enough for the very queen of collets. It seemed a potent reminder of how carefully the fragile treasure needs to be kept, for exposure on one damp day would mean its finish. Pretty Shoulder Cape* and Scurfs. For young matron* the fashion mon gers are displaying Jut now some short •boulder capes with the same ends and throat ruffle as ihe boes. and which, when made of black French lace or taffeta with not frill*, seem delightful additions to a light toilette. Many sorts of scarf* are seen, those of painted Liberty silk being much used out of town <i eventng mufflers, and some, times with a garden party or summer hotel evening frock there will be a long affair of soft mull, made to tit about tha ahouldera with a graceful quaiirttne** A dainty anarf of this aort Is mad* to wear with a garden party frock of tuckid whit* taffeta and black dotted Swiss The #erf trooper la of the plain galas with dottel ruffles, and the note of black Is furthar repeat ad In a heading to the skirt flounce, • girdle and tie k band of late In clover **f applique* "" hacked Stresses Very Popular.

Parlsiennes even wear the stockless bodice shopping, it seems, but here the few seen about hotel corridors, en voiture, and on summer-garden roofs, are generally accompanied by the partial ly shrouding boa or scarf, which only slips away long enough to tantalize mas culine eyes. We must be modest In town, but for country use, where gloves arc not thought of and hare heads go every where, the low throated bodice is perfect ly admissible. Chenille a Desirable Garniture. A gown of dead white wool canvas over taffeta, shown elsewhere, demonstrates another of the black and white combina tions now so popular. Here the old time chenille cord Is used for the sombre notes in a rich floral passementerie and shoul der knot, and a black taffeta dust ruffle, sewed at the Inside of the outer skirt hem, not only protects its perishable whiteness at this point, but gives a styl-j ish under shadowing in movement. The shaping of the neck of the bodice per mits this costume being turned at a mo ment's notice into quite a splendid even ing affair. The guimpe of white tulle with circular puffings, held down by smaller chenille than Is used elsewhere, is fast ened to an under bodice. So by simply leaving this off and removing the long, silk gloves—silk gloves are a deal more chic than suede this season—a low waist and elbow sleeves are revealed Some thirty years ago chenille was the delight If the fashion fairies and of our mothers and grandmothers, and It is cer tainly a garniture too becoming to be left any longer on the shelf of departed modes. But as yet It Is only seen on lmuorted gowns of the haute non scan to families, and even then 1t is generally moet sparse ly employed and always In black. Mary I>ean. Bonks Brought to the Poor.

JUNE 30. 1901. “WHAT I WOULD HAVE DONE WITH A BAD HUSBAND.” By Susan B. Anthony. Copyright, 1901, by S. S. McClure Cos. At first thought it seems a waste of time to devote an entire article to a question which easily might be an swered in a sentence that It will not be difficult for the reader to supply. But on second thought I remember that the tense of the verb puts the matter far hack into the pest, refers It to the last century, in fact—" What I would have done,” If I had married In the early 40s, along about the time when I was getting my first proposals, and had drawn a bad husband in the lottery, doubtless I would have done as other women did in those days—accepted my cruel fate as a means of grace to fit me for a better life hereafter. At that time there were no such means of escape from an un fortunate marriage as are so freely of fered In this more humane and enlight ened age. In my own state of New York, as in most others, the low recognized but one cause for divorce—lnfidelity, but the innocent wife who obtained a separa tion, even for this cause, forfeited all right of the property the two had ac quired together, while the husband, who hod sinned, remained in sole possession. But this Injustice sank into insignificance compared with that which allowed him also to retain the entire custody of their children. Many women would willingly have gone forth portionless, but there was scarcely one who would not have borne every Indignity which could be heaped upon her rather than give up her chil dren. In even the few cases where there were to ties of motherhood, women hard ly dared take the risk of separation, be cause there was almost no way open to them In which they could earn a living. But a still greater deterrent was the fact that a divorced woman, no matter how guiltless of wrong-doing, was a social pariah not far removed from that one who bore the Sarlet Letter on her breast. There was no place In the world for her. So, possibly, if I had had a bad husband In those days—those “good old days" that we hear so much about—l might have en dured him, as other women did theirs; hut it seems to me that I would have gathered my children In my arms, like Eliza In “Uncle Tom's Cabin," and braved the icy waters in my dash for freedom. Elizabeth Cady Stanton was almost the first woman to demand that habitual drunkenness or brutal treatment should be made a cause for divorce, and that women should be encouraged to seek re lief from such a wrong. After myself Y do you keep on suffering and going about with that annoying and ever present fe ver and still hesitate about getting rid of It, when you can be cured at a trifling expense- Read what one of the many who have have sought relief and has never been troubled since has to say: The Dr. W.

Paterson, N. J. LIPPMA.V IIHOS., Agents, Savan nah, Ga. and several other women delegates had been denied the right to speak at a mass meeting of the Sons of Temperance in Al bany, N. Y., I arranged for the first state temperance convention of women ever called, and It was held in Rochester, in April, 1852, with delegates present from a number of women’s societies, which were then beginning to be formed. I was encouraged In this movement by Horace Greeley, Rev. William Henry Charming and others of influence, and Mrs. Stan ton, who was Just coming into notice for her eloquence and ability, agreed to pre side. I had put In weeks of hard work getting up this meeting, a large crowd was in attendance and everything looked favorable, but Mrs. Stanton's president’s address proved to be a veritable bombshell and almost broke up the convention. The incendiary paragraph was as follows ■'Let no woman remain In the relation of wife with a confirmed drunkard. Let no drunkard be the father of her children. • * * Let us petition our state govern*- ment so to modify the laws affecting mar riage and the custody of children that the drunkard shall have no claims on wife or child." I was almost the only woman present who sustained Mr*. Stanton in this dec laration; she declined to retract, and eventually both of us felt compelled to withdraw from the temperance associa tion. In September of that year I attended STRIKING COSTUME OF w'hITE WOOL AND BLACK CHENILLE. my first suffrage convention, In Syracuse, N, Y.. which was, Indeed, among the first ever held. Lucretia Mott presided and among the speakers were Hon. Gerrlt Smith. Lucy Stone, Rev. Antoinette Brown (Blackwell), Matilda Joslyn Gage. Paulina Wright Davis, Clarina Howard Nichols and the eloquent Polish exile, Ernestine L. Rose. Mrs. Stanton could not be present, but she sent a letter, which I read, and which, among other radic'al utterances, repeated the demands that habitunl drunkenness and cruel treat, ment should be recognized as couses for divorce. The press heralded these state mets abroad with the most scathing crit icism, while pulpit, platform and the pub lic in general Joined in a chorus of de nunciation of this most pernicious doc trine. Women themselves were loudest and longest in their condemnation of a law whkih would enable them to divorce a drunken or brutal husband and retain their children and a part of the prop erty. This discussion was renewed at ell our annual meetings, and found its culmina tion in the last suffrage convention be fore the breaking out of the Civil War put all other questions in the background. It was held at Cooper Institute, New York city, in May, I860; and. as usual, the firebrand wos applied by Mrs. Stan ton, who not only had the courage of her convictions, but recognized no such word as expediency. She presented a set of resolutions declaring that, under certain conditions, divorce was Justifiable, and supported them by a speech which was a masterpiece of logic, beauty and pathos. Th!s convention, although composed of the m< .-i liberal and advanced thinkers in the country, had not y*t reached Mrs. Stan ton's position on this point. Even the broad-minded Wendell Phillips moved to lay the resolutions on the table and expunge them from the minutes, declar ing that this body had nothing to do with any laws except those which rest ed unequally upon women, and those of divorce did not! I spoke in reply and showed how marriage always had been a one-eided contract, resting most un eoually upon the sexes; how tn nearly all of the states a woman could not even sue for divorce in her own name, or claim enough of the community property •to pay the costs; and how her success In such a ca.se was purchased at the price of reputation, home and children. William I.loyd Garrison sustained this position with all his eloquence. The dis cussion spreod far and wide, and produc ed the first shism In the ranks of the lit tle band of suffragists who had stood shoulder to (shoulder In so many battles Horace Greely used the tremendous weight of the Tribune's editorial columns against divorce under any circumstances. Thus wns the contest waged for several decades against s slowly yielding public sentiment, and the closing years of the century have witnessed no greater social revolution than upon this very question. Almost every state nos- grants divorce for habitual drunkenness and cruel treat ment, and these are recognised ss Just causes by sll the churches except the Catholic, although fifty year* ago this demand was far more bitterly condemned than that for woman suffrage But the changed attitude of church and state Is by no means so lesnsikable as that which has taken piacs in public opinion. Th divorced woman, who is herself (nnoornt. la no longer put under ■ ban. but may ,vtin bar usual portuon in society, and may go and come and be and do as she chooses, -with even greater freedom than the married woman. The court provides that she shall not be penniless if her hue bend be possessed of means, and above all she is allowed, if innocent, to retain . her children. What I would have done with a bad husband, and what I would do if I be longed to the present generation and had made an unfortunate marriage, cannot be answered with the same statemet. In this dWwn of a blessed century for women I most assuredly would have recourse to the law to rectify my mistake, and would sever the bond which held me captive. The term ‘'bad husband” is, however, subject to many constructions. I have seen women apparently well satisfied with men whom I should unhesitatingly class under this head, and others greatly dis contented with those who, making due allowance, averaged very fairly in the scale of matrimony. But there are cer tain sins in marriage which are unpar donable, and chief among these is Infi delity. The man who has transgressed In this regard can never again be fully trust ed. He -may repent and endeavor to atone for his sin, but confidence has been de stroyed, the saeredness of the mutual vow has been violated, and the thor ough respect, which is absolutely essen tial to the highest form of married life, never con be entirely restored. The hus band may regret, the wife may condone, but the solid foundation of marriage has been irrevocably undermined. How far a wife should go, how many years she should spend, how great an effort she should make to "reform" a habitual drunkard, possibly each woman must determine for herself. The general statement rqfy be made that In the vast majority of cases It will be a useless sacrifice of time and vitality. One never can feel sure of a reformed inebriate un til the daisies are growing above his head. Even when a woman’s love, or sense of duty, is so strong that she is willing to devote her life to this “reform ing” process, she should settle with her conscience whether she has a right to bring children into the world under these unfavorable conditions, endowed with an Inheritance which may prove a curse for many generations. And then again the wife must decide for herself how much is gained by sub mitting to continuous ill treatment. If there are no children and yet she patient ly endures, many will consider that she passes beyond the pale of sympathy. If they are young there is the question of bringing them up. of educating them, of keeping them together, of maintaining the home, of giving them the personal at tention which is wholly Impossible if the mother must be the breadwinner and as sume the duties which by proper ar rangement devolve upon the father. Most women will suffer long and deeply before they will deprive their children of these valuable rights. When the children are grown, then the mother qiust face other vital questions as she contemplates sever ing the ties which she has found so gall ing. She has passed the age for earn ing money; she Is tired with long years of labor and needs the shelter and se curity of the home; her children have made their place In the world, and she hesitates to cast even the shadow of re proach upon It; sons and daugthers-ln law have come Into the family, still fur ther to complicate matters; and thus even then the woman hardly dares consider herself a free agent. But In all such cases. If she decide that a legal separa tion is not advisable, she owes It to her own dignity and self respect to live her individual life entirely apart from that of the unfaithful, dissolute or abusive hus band, even though maintaining to the world the appearance of marriage. While greater freedom of divorce has come as an inestimable prilvlege to wives, it by no means lessens their obligations to endeavor by every method consistent with safety, honor and duty to adjust themselves to the relations of marriage which they have assumed. An abuse of the opportunity to sever these relations Is demoralizing to society and detracts from the sacredness of the contract. Pov erty, Illness, Infirmities of temper, uneon gcniallty are a part of the grevlous trials which manlfesi themselves In many mar riages. They must be met bravely and philosophically and every effort made to Cured Of Itohing Plies.

The antenuptial dream of paradise often has a rude awakening, but It must he remembered that even when Adam and Eve were driven from the gar den of Eden they found a very good world on the outside. An Imperfect husband, who falls short of the wife’s ideal is not necessarily a bad one, and by pattmt, tactful and sympathetic management sometimes may be transformed into a rea sonably good one; so she should exhaust every lesource of diplomacy before she declares wax and calls for outside assist ance. ,£j JIM HOISEKEEFEKS WAIT TO KNOW.
