A sratlcman, whose oinion on many
robjocta tho -world has thonght worth
rfwvinjr. has said that, with small va
riaJims, men and women arc interested
in tho same subjects. Lord Chesterfield,
who never mule sweeping statements,
and whose knowledge of women no one
will dispute, is in this belief entitled to
wspectfnl consideration. At this mo
ment from Boston comes tho news that
the yonng women there for some time
have had a widely connected organiza
tion of protective tariff clubs. These
were formed two years ago under the
inspiration of Governor McKinley's
It seems that whenever the governor
spoke there was always conspicuous
in the audience a young woman with a
notebook. After the speech was ended
she was sure to present herself with a
query in the proup that olwavs collects
to shake hands with the speaker. There
was an earnestness in her demeanor and
a serious light in her eye that could only
come fromdeep conviction and a high
purpose. This forbade the thought of a
woman reporter. These various young
women were, in fact, the representatives
of tho different yonng women's protect
ive clubs, now a flourishing affiliated
The enterprise is not at all a new one.
In this city a group of working girls has
for six years bad a club devoted to eco
nomic subjects. This club, however, is
not committed to any selfish, one sided
view of these questions, bat to the study
of the underlying principles. Their opin
ions vary as their minds incline. One
girl is a protectionist, another a free
trader. It is especially interesting to see
how aptly they are able to illustrate and
illumiuate their views out of their varied
experiences as workwomen. One of
these girls is a shirt maker. A discussion
between this girl and some picked Bos
ton classic from tho protective clubs
would be as interesting an event as the
prize debates between Harvard and Yale.
There is one thing to be said for the Bos
ton clubs they wor.ld not wholly de
stroy the exciting sport of eluding the
customs. New York Sun.
Raw Mrs. Cranula Totvd.
The 5ew York woman who always
tries to vote was at the polls last elec
tion dornius at exactly QUO, and the
remarkable thing about it was that she
did voto too.
It was Mrs. E. C Grannis, and "she
was accompanied by another woman
who wanted to see just how it was done,
and if any of the terrible things which
men are always predicting will happen
would really come to pVas when a wom
an voted. Sir. Bartlei t, brother of Mrs.
Grannis, also went along.
The woman expected that jeers, cat
calls insults and jostlings would be her
lot. But instead thereof every man
stopjied aside respectfully for the small,
determined woman to pass, and there
wasn't a loud word that referred to a
woman uttared.
Tho poils where Mrs. Grannis went
were on Fourth avenue, Iwtwcen Twenty-first
and Twenty-second streets. Once
inside the charmed inclosure in other
words, the barber shop Mrs.' Grannis
politely preferred her request for the
privilege of casting a vote.
"I am very sorry," said one of the
men, "but as a servant of the public I
am here to obey orders. I think, though,
that women ought to vote, and if I had
my way would help them to do bo."
"If all the women would do as you are
doing." spoke cp another, "I think they
would have the ballot in a short time.
They would convince men that they
were in earnest and really wanted it"
Then Mrs. Grannis voted her ticket.
Sho didn't put it in the slot herself. Her
brother did that. But it was her ticket
from beginning to end, and her brother
did not know what was on it till ho put
it in.
"My brother," said Mrs. Grannis, "has
agreed to give mo his vote every other
year liecanse he knows that I am a prop
erty holder that I want the right of the
ballot, end he feels keenly the injustice
of the thing. We ore opposite in our
politics, which makes his unselfishness
in the matter very apparent." New
York Recorder.

What do I think is the most remark
able thing about the American woman?
Her good humor under difficulties is sur
passed by nothing I have ever Men.
Her adaptability is wonderful. Her
versatility and quickness in saying the
right thing at a moment's notice are most
markad. Perhaps greater than all thtee
is her intellectuality. She is so exceed
ingly Greek in type. The prevailing
type among your bvat men is Roman.
The prevailing type among your best
women is Grecian. . They settle things
intellectually and bo seriously. Your
women seem to have a aense of humor,
bat they haven't been accustomed Muse
it in developing buoyancy of character,
and they worry and hurry too much. .
Your girls are moat charming and
delightful, bat they, too, do things with
the bead rather than with the heart. I
know yon think English girls lack feel
lag because they are shy and constrained
oold, you call it It is because they
feel so much that they cannot let the
feeling bobble over in light words mo
easily and before everybody. They
havent been trained to express their
feeling so spontaneously, bat it is there.
I would rather appeal to the heart of an
Engnsh giri than to the heart of an
iimerirsn girUnt I had rather trust
the bend of an American girl than the
head of an English girL The American
girl gunks for herself, decides for her
self, has ber own opinions and Jsnl
afrnU tosraoanos them. I have no de
sirs to rttactas. I believe maaeaugths

achievement in results and in individ

i!.ss Nellie M. Emerson of San Fran
c'rtco was appointed a commissioner of
the United States court of land claims a
few days ago. Thi position is to some
extent judicial. Commissioner ' Emer

Miss Emerson's appointment came abont
in this way. When Attorney Thoma
Ball of Virginia was in California last
summer. Miss Emerson proved herself s
very valuable assistant to him in his in
vestigations under the Indian depreda
tions act Together they made a tour of
inquiry from Eureka to Los Angeles,
and when Mr. Ball returned to Wash
ington he carried with him a high opin
ion of Miss Emerson's abilities.
Miss Emerson was born in Oakland,
CaL, went through the high school and
took additional courses in Maine and
Boston. She is an expert with the type
writer, and for several years she has con
ducted a typewriting business in Sax
Francisco. The Daily Call of that city,
from which these facts are obtained,
commends tho appointment and rejoice
that a daughter of California is the first
woman to hold the office.

Miss Means Wins Uer Case.
After being refused communion by a
church in Columbia, S. C, because she
worked three hours every Sunday as a
telephone girl, a decision that was up
held by the Charleston presbytery. Miss
Sadie Means has won her case on an ap
peal to the South Carolina synod, which
by a vote of 63 to 40 ordered that the
action of the Charleston presbytery be
annulled, and that the church in Colum
bia "restore Sadie M. Means to all her
rights and privileges as a member in full
communion of said church." Rev. G.
A. Blackburn, pastor of the Second
church, gave notice in behalf of tho
Charleston presbytery tltat they will ap
peal to the general assembly.
The case had excited a good deal of
indignation, tho friends of Miss Means
pointing out that there were several
prominent men in the same church who
worked on Sunday, although they were
not compelled to do it "by poverty, as she
wa3. There seemed to be no good reason
why the girl should be singled out for

The milliners bill thissaason bids fair
.to appall even t'ae most indulgent hus
band. When milady of fashion buys a
dressy little toque, sho also buys a cape
and muff to match.
These sets are the daintiest things im
aginable, but their price is better left
untold. A shop window displays a set
fashioned in green miroir velvet The
little toque is of the velvet, which shades
from palest green into dark, with the
contrasting shadow tints a rich brown.
The velvet is dented here and there and
framed in a little sable bow, with the
head and two tails adorning the toque iu
front The cape is formed of two velvet
ruffles, very full and lined with the pal
est green silk. They are edged with a
narrow band of sable.
The velvet muff is a peculiarly shaped
affair. It hangs down in points ut tho
sides and shows conspicuously its deli
cate silk lining. It is bordered with sa
ble and suspended from pale green rib

Flea Color Fashionable.
Flea color will be the fashionable col
or this winter. Women will have flea
colored gowns and mantles, men flea
colored overcoats and babies flea col
ored cloaks. It was the unfortunate
Louis XVI who gave this name to the
shiny brown chestnut color which is
known in France as pace. One after
noon Marie Antionctte appeared in a
gown of that tint, when the king re
marked. "That couleur de puce suits
you admirably," and the ladies of the
court, overhearing what he said, ex
claimed, with the usual flattery of court
iers: "Puce! Oh, delicious! What s
charming idea!" And as soon as they
were free hurried off to their dressmak
ers to order a flea colored gown liko that
of the queen. Later on a color colled
double puce was invented, and for a sea
ion was all the rage. St Louis I"ost

The Meat ttaeaal Fad.
The latest fashionable fancy, which
is only talked abont and has not as yet
been pat on exhibition at the shops, is
anklets. Every one is talking about
them, and every one is supposed to be
wearing them, although the fact cannot
be proved. Never since the bangle craxa
when every woman wore all the silver,
gold or even jewelled bracelets she could
get, has there been anything so barbaric
in style. Bangles are not entirely "out"
yet, although the present fashion is to
wear but two or three. If possible,
these must be gold, plain or jeweled.
After bangles came garter clasps, and
now garter clasps of silver or gold, plain
elaborate, are an absolute necessity

that it has every appliance and conven

a complete furnace for firing pottery and

Two modest little country women
came to New York this fall and regis
tered at a certain quiet hotel. Here they
were joined a little later by the husband
of one of them, and to him was brought
the bill for their week by themselves.
"Really," he said, after a long drawn
whistle, "either I have been grossly de
ceived in the wife of my bosom or there
lias been some mistake." He handed
them the bit of paper. Two blond heads
bent over it Four startled eyes read
this entry, "Drinks at the bar. $8.60."
There had been a mistake. Exchange.
Rosettes In Fashion.
The touches of ribbon added to many
kinds of fancy work this fall take the
form of rosettes. Large rosettes raado
of loops of wide satin ribbon ore seen
on new wastepaper baskets and smaller
ones upon workbaskets. The rosettes
are often of different colors, as one of
yellow and one of pale pink. They look
like double hollyhocks. Rosettes not as
pretty have bob! a dozen different colors
in their makeup. . For lace trimmed
pincushions and pillows and shades full
pompons are made from many loops of
baby ribbon.
A Woman Vf 1th Grit.
Miss Alzada Lotz of Bent county, Colo.,
has commuted her homestead entry and
paid the $200. The Business Bulletin of
Colorado Springs says: "Theyoung lady
is but 23 years of age, but is possessed of
true western grit and perseverance. For
six months she carried the mail a dis
tance of 30 miles over a thinly settled
country. Sho is intelligent and hand
some and knows more in a minute than
some town dudes do in a month who
stand on street corners and argue that
women should not be allowed to vote."
Harriet llosmer's Work.
Harriet Hosmer, whose statue of Queen
Isabella met with so many misfortunes
in regard to being placed at the fair that
it was not placed at all, is at last to see
her work properly exhibited. At the
Midwinter fair in San Francisco, which
she will visit, it will have a prominent
position. Miss Hosmer participated in
Chicago in tho dedication of the only
thing erected to the memory of Queen
Isabella a little pampas grass pavilion

Incalla on Women.
Ex-Senator Ingalls of Kansas addressed
a large public meeting held recently at
Doylestown, Pa., in connection with the
teachers and school directors' institute.
He is reported in tho Doylestown Daily
Intelligencer as saying that woman suf
frage is coming. "Women will vote as
soon as they want to. It they don't, it
will be the first thing they ever wanted
and did not get The progression of wo
