"Its my first season," said the Chorus Girl. "1 think the stage is perfectly lovely." She was such a pretty Chorus Girl—the cne the editor of The Globe's wom an's page interviewed yesterday—that if the had exclaimed over her own loveli ness instead of the beauty of the barren stage, one must of necessity have for given her. It is true her hair was ilondined and she showed a naive inap j.reciation of familiar grammatical rules, but the former made a halo about a face; that had retained all its childlike con tour, and the latter—well, the latter was forgotten when one looked at the big tleepy gray eyes that flashed now and then from under their long lashes. The setting only spoiled the picture that this tall, slim young chorus girl made. The room was small and cheerless. An un finished breakfast unattractively arrang ed on a big black tray occupied one of the two chairs in the room. The visitor occupied the other and the Chorus Girl perched herself on the trunk. "What do 1 like about it?" she repeated dreamily. •Why," candidly, "I think it's the excitement. You see we're always going some place and there is always something to see or do. The girls in. the company are awfully nice, too. It seems like one big family. "My home is in Philadelphia," con tinued the Chorus Girl confidentially. "Perhaps you've heard," innocently, "that Philadelphia is slow?' The visitor nodded. "Yes, it's awfully slow," and the Cho rus Girl sighed retrospectively. "And, anyhow, I always wanted to go on the Btage. Of course, I had had a little ex perience in private theatricals and I danced and sang a little. When the com pany began to rehearse in Philadelphia I went to the manager and asked him for a position. He gave me one at once. "It was difficult at first. Everything was strange. So many girls were crowd ed into the dressing rooms and there was the make-up. Nobody tells you anything about that. You have to use your own judgment and ask the other girls about the results. You get to be a good judge yourself in a very short time and you find out what kind^ of rouge is best for your face. Most of the girls use grease paint, but I never do. Before I make-up, how ever, I rub cold cream on my face and then I apply cosmetics. Then, when I •want to remove the paint after the per formance 1 rub more cold cream on and that takes most of the paint off. In that way. you sei\ I protect my skin. "Are chcrus girls ambitious? Yes, 1 tlink most of them are. You see," naively, "there are always some girls in the chorus you don't like and naturally you want to get ahead of them. That makes you do your best. "No, I don't find it hsrd work, and I really like one night stards. Yes, I know, most girls don't, but I truly do. You see. if you don't like a town very well you just have to remember that you are there only for that one night and you can look forward to the new town that '•the company is to visit. "What do I like best about my work? Why, I like the dancing and the "different colored lights and the music and the ap plause. Suppers and things?" The CHo rus girl threw back her head and laugh ed. "You read about these in the pa pers," she said, demurely. "We do not hear so much about them on the stage.'" Of Social interest. Mr. ami Mrs. A. C.

Thls is the temperature in which the very best kinds of wash goods make their debut for the season. In fact, it is the best kind of weather in which to stay in the house and sew if there are yet women who do their own sewing, and one aoes come across one now and then who makes at least her own shirt waists. White is to bemused more than ever this year, and it has many good qualities. It washes well, no one can doubt that, and there is no trouble with fading, as there often is with the best colored goods, which will change color in the sun when they will withstand even a careless wash ing. White, is always in good style for morn ing or afternoon wear, and it will go with everything. It will become soiled more quickly, or least show that it is soiled sooner than other goods'; but the one lux- EBONY CAKE. CREAM GARNISH. ■tk_l' ■ '"' ■**« ■ ■' ■"^-i *'■'■ i'm^i.

For the cake beat the whites of ten medium sized eggs until so stiff and dry that you can turn the bowl over and they will not drop out. Then add gradually three-quarters cup of fine granulated sugar, beating across the bowl and not stirring. Add one teaspoon of flavoring, and one-third cup of flour, four level tablespoons of cornstarch, one level teaspoon of cream tartar and a few grains of salt sifted together three times. Do not beat after the ingredi ents are well mixed, as the air cells of the beaten egg and the air in the lightly sifted flour will be liberated by much stirring, and the lightness of the cake injured. ury in which a "woman should plan to indulge in the summer is an extra al lowance for the laundry, and by having work done at home the cost of fresh frocks and gowns is comparatively liale. To toegin with, the thinnest goods, which to many people are the least attractive, there are the embroidered Swisses for evening and many semi-dress occasions. There is nothing prettier in effect than a frock of one of these sheer muslins, and there is nothing to be found this sea son in which there is more variety. There are, in the tirst place, the dots. There are tiny dots no bigger than a pinhead, set closely together, and there are other fine dotted muslins with the dots a trifle larger and set a little fur ther apart and intersected at intervals by eight-inch dots. Still other patterns having only one-size dots show these half the size of the larger ones. The dotten muslins will cost 60 cents a yard, and nothing more serviceable can be found. The dot is a pattern of eternal youth, and it never becomes conspicu ous. After the dots come all sorts of pat terns in the Swisses, and all sorts of prices ranging up to $1.50. For that price one can find a pattern of stripes of equal width, one of the plain and fine muslin, and the other a lace stripe with an em broidered pattern upon it. Very pretty at $1 is a variation of the dot pattern, MISS HANNA TO BE A BRIDE. Mabel, Daughter of Senator Mark Hanna, to Wed Cartoonist Parsons.

If you wish to clear your skin and get rid of the disfiguring spots on forehead or chin, you must make up your mind" to undertake a. severe regime, both in diet and personal care. The sallowness so noticeable on many a young face is prob ably a result of insufficient circulation and of improper digestive work. The blotches come indirectly from the same 1 cause or from some other trouble which appertains to functional health. Your dislike to water is natural to your condition, but you can never im prove until you have overcome it. Bath ing is the best, in fact, it is the only way of improving the circulation, and it Bake In a tube pan for at least forty five minutes, and possibly ten minutes more will be needed for the cake must shrink from the pan before it is taken cut. Like a meringue or sponge cake this cake must have a slow oven. For the frosting break up two squares of chocolate and melt over hot water, add a level teaspoon of butter and three tablespoons of hot water. It will become a thick mass and you will think that you have spoiled it, but stir in gradually one-half cup of powdered sugar and per haps a level tablespoon more, and it will spread smoothly over the cake; add fla voring. Garnish this cake with whipped cream when served. —Alice E. Whi taker. must be constant. At night take a warm bath, rather a hot one, using a flesh brush of a loofa vigorously and tubbing yourself into a glow afterwards with a coarse Turkish towel. If you can stand a cold plunge in the morning—that is, if your heart is entirely strong and ac tive—never omit it, cays the Pittsburg Dispatch. In two weeks with deep breathing practiced all the time, an 3 especially when you are in the open air, you will notice an improvement. It re quires a good deal of moral courage, and you will find yourself at times very loath to take these energetic measures, but they are necessary,, and without them you can hope for no improvement whatever. In your diet you must eat green vege tables, lettuce, watercress, celery and radishes, one of these at least once every day. and for other food take cooked veg etables, dressed simply with a little but ter and cream, boiled rice and rice soups made with peas, beans or one of the cere als. Do not eat meat oftener than three times a week and let it be rare beefsteak broiled simply, or roast beef or lamb. Do not touch pork or veal in any form. Eat fruit at every meal, and eat at least two apples each day. preferably just be fore going to bed. Celery an ii rat in. After selecting all the best of the in- ner bleached stalks for salad, cut the remainder of the bunch into half-inch bits, first scraping off any spots or stringy portions. Cover with boiling wa ter and let it cook until tender; If you have about one pint of the celeuy let the water boil away to about one-half- cup. Drain off this water and add to it one-half cup of cream and heat again. Melt one rounded tablespoon of butter, add one rounded tablespoon of flour, and when well mixed add gradually the hot liquid. Stir as it thickens and add salt and pep per. Turn the cooked celery into a bak ing dish and sprinkle over it from one fourth to one-half cup of grated cheese. Pour the sauce over the whole and cover the top with one-half cup of fine cracker crufnbs moistened with melted butter. Bake in a hot oven until the crumbs are brown. Surround the dish with a paper ruffle and garnish with a tuft of the yel low celery leaves. The cheese may be omitted and the celery and sauce may be turned into the shell of an Edam or pineapple cheese, covered with the but tered crumbs and baked until the crumbs are browned. The cheese shells will give the celery sufficient flavor. WOMAN'S GOLF VEST.

My Dearest Louise—l can't date this "on the road to Mandelay," for the ther mometer outside of our camp door de clares it 42 degrees, so I rather feel 1 am en route to the north pole, but as this is just to tell you a little of our jolly hunt ing trip and not a weather report, I shall rot waste time telling you how cold it is. You know our party, consisting of Brother Tom and his wife, our cousins, Harry and Lewis Thompson, and my self, left Balto Oct. 15 for Boston, from there to Portland, and then a bee line for this camp in the heart of the woods. When 1 see you 1 will tell you all of the comforts and discomforts of this sort of living; what characters our guides are, and all that; but just now I have one piece of news that overshadows all else. I have shot a deer! Yes, truly, and I can show you my guide's affidavit if my word does not convince you. I can just feel my head s welling every time 1 think of it, and you will please save your pennies for those gloves you wagered that 1 would never see a deer hoof in Maine. I wish 1 coukl tell you of the charms of this life. We leave camp early in 'fhe rrorning, each with his own guide, and though sometimes you do get just a little tired, after you have tramped five or six hours without seeing a noof mark, still you enjoy the magnificent woods etc and when your keen-eyed guide does spy signs of game you forgejt all the aching muscles and follow on with a light heart But I must not let my enthusiasm run away with me, for it's not likely you axe as interested in deer talk as I am just row. But I have had a funny little experi ence that you may laugh over with me. Do you remember when we came home from Washington in September, just as we left the train at the Union station we saw Charlie English waving good-bye to such a handsome man who was just leaving him? And Charlie came to us lamenting that we had been out of town while he was entertaining a most charm- Ing New Yorker. Well, my dear, we have seen the N. Y. charmer up here, and 1 he has lost none of his good looks on the way. We stopped over night at a small coun try inn just before getting into our camp, and as we sat around the open fire in the sitting room, who should tramp through into his own room ad joining the sitting room, but the un known New Yorker. In a little while the rest of gthe party left the room to look after traps, guides, etc., and you know how I whistle to keep my spirits up when alone!

Mrs. James, together with a number of other women in Min neapolis, is interested in the establishment of a school of domestic science and her address last night was on the proposed course of study in this scool. She is of the opinion that the work of keeping house could be done much better and with much less expense if gone about in a scientific way. Mrs. E. L«.

Of course I'll never see him again to I don t ntind the experience. We will be here a week longer. Do write me soon. Now I'm too sleepy fur another wr>rd ocept good-night.

You know what this magn'ticent hotel is, so I won't waste paper in telling you of its attractions. We got here about noon today, dead tired, but glowing with satisfaction and tnumph, for our party of five got six deer. I won't tell you who was the lucky man who shot two, for he is al ready sufficiently puffed up with pride. But we think our record a fine one lor our first big game trip. We expect to get home Friday of this week, so do come around at once and play appreciative audience for us. We will promise to talk you "deaf, dumb and blind." Now, isn't that a pleasing inducement? Guess who is in the hotel? The un known whistler, looking even handsomer than ever! He passed our table as we were at din ner, and though I ga-ve no sign of recog nition, I'm afraid I grew more rosy than the occasion demanded. How I shculd love to know what luck he had, but now it's growing too late to talk even about a good-looking stranger, so here is a good-night kiss and I am off to dreams. Do come around Friday and tell me all that has happened in good old Baltimore town since I left it, and then give me a chance to tell you about this trip, the greatest one a sport-loving girl ever had.

For who should walk in but Charlie English and the man from Maine You may imagine how dumfoumled I was, but the natural instinct of a hostess saved me, and in a moment Mr. Foster was duly presented. We had a most delightful evening, in spite of my embarrassment, for, of course, he was too clever to hint at our whistling duet. Yes, I'm heartily ashamed of it now. and I know the old adage concerning a whistling woman, but it's too late to cry over it now. • Hastily yours, with love, —Katharine. Baltimore. Feb. 19, 190}.

It just couldn't be anybody else in all the world, and if you think I can begin to tell you what a darling he is in this scrap of a note you are much mis taken.
