tVomra In Dentistry.
Dentistry as a profession for women
is conijuiratively a new one, and until
lately tbero have been no facilities for
pursuing tho study. Philadelphia and
Baltimore have a woman's department
attached to their dental colleges, but
New York city has not nhown a spirit
of progress in this respect.
The only school of dontistrv in the
city and state of New York where wo
men students are accepted is in the
newly established New York Dental
School For Jlcn nrd Women, an institu
tion of the University of the State of
New York. A regent's examination
must be undergone prior to entering,
and a throe years c mr?a of study is
necessary litfore receiving the degree
of D. D. S.
' Tho few female graduates of the
school have been able to command the
saino wages as men. so thero is no cheap
ening of labor to lie urged against it.
From (15 to $30 a week is tho usual
salary a druggist's cl rk receives, the
averago amount earned being abont $19.
However, a woman of industry, busi
ness tact and push need not necessarily
remain in a subordinate position, but
can look forward to owning a place of
her own, as it drs not require a fortune
to pnrchaso a small drug store. In lit
tle towns where skilled pharmacists are
not so easily procured a woman would
stand a lietter chance of success than in
overcrowded cities, where trained laiior
is readily obtainable. Jenness llillcr
A Tea til. Dinner.
A London print tells of a " tennis din
ner" given by the wife of an f nglish
ofhcial at Shanghai in payment of a
wager lost at lawn tennis. The table
was arranged as a miniature tennis
court, tho lines being indicated by red
ribbons pinned on tho cloth. Across
tho center of tho table was stretched a
net of white silk, fastened to two posts
of polished walnut wood, supported by
white silk cords. The flag of the court
in which the eventful game had been
played waved from one post, and a red
silk bag containing miniature tennis
balls lay near the net.
A lilliputian umpire's stand showed
at one side of the table, opposite an
equally diminutive blackboard, the lat
ter bearing tho number and appropria
tions of the various courts written in
chalk. A narrow ribbon suspended from
four little posts inclosed the whole in a
manner similar to which match courts
are roped off. The menu cards were or
namented with tennis d jsigns, while the
guests' cards all bore appropriate ten
nis expressions. One champion players'
card bore tho words, "Love all, van
tage all." The lucky winner of the
wager was distinguished by "Game and
set," and tho card of a celebrated legal
luminary was inscribed with "Wrong
court." Tho dinner was voted a great
access by all who assisted. ' " v

"Is Legislation Needed For Women?"
is the title of a very able and 'earnest
paper read before the woman's parlia
ment of southern California at Los An
geles Oct. 1 1. 1898. Its author is airs.
Mary Lynde Craig, editor of the wom
an' department of Tho Citrograph of
Bed Lands, CaL airs. Craig suggests
!.. it unM Tm better if California
kronen would read less of Greek and
Roman history and more ot toe Uaillor
nia codes. She calls for legislation by
which women will be admitted tolas)
ballot box as they are now admitted td
the prison and tho tax list.
To show that they need to vote Mrs.
Craig points out that under the Califor
nia code: (1) A married woman In order
to becomo a solo trader, that she may
feed and clothe and educate her chil
dren, uinst first provo as much against
her husband as she would have to prove
to secure a divorce from him and must
also tell why she does not ask tor a di
vorce. (2) All property acquired by a
woman after xnarriago other than by
gift, devise' or descent becomes com
munity property, over which tho hus
band has the sole management and con
trol. (3) That mothers have no share
in tlia ownership and control of their
childrun. . '

The New Orleans Picayune says:
There ha been an Men not ret obsolete that
a woman who baa racial position, friends anil
happy homo relations is satisfied to let tho
world mora as it will, and not trouMc herself
concerning things outside ot her own charmed
eirrle. Mrs. Caroline. E. Merrick's lifo lies
been a direct refutation of this charge. Che
has nn original mind, and refusing; to accent
other peoplu's belief of things has dared to
have the coo race of her convictions. 8 be. has
been an object lernon to her sex, and bus helped
teach It that a woman may bo eraccful,
charmlnc. well dreorrd. well bred an.l adored
by her husband and (till be (iW'clly and in
tensely interested in the well being of human
ity. She is a brilliant writer as well as a uc
ressfol speaker, and has not only employed her
pen in writing serious thine, but has published
many excellent stories and charactcrFkctchcs.
Mrs. Merrick is president of the Lou
isiana Woman Suffrage association, was
for years president of the Louisiana W.
C. T. U., which she organized, and is
now its honorary president. 15ho is chief
officer of tho WToman's League, of New
Orleans and vice president of tho Portia
club of that city. A recent numlier of
Fetter's Southern Magazine contains a
portrait and sketch of her, closing with
this graceful tribute: "There is not a
woman in tho south today who is more
admired, honored and loved by her fel
low women than Caroline E. Merrick."
A Kemarkabto Traveler.
Mrs. Adelia Gates, whose lifo and
travels nro described in "The Chroni
cles of the Cid. " has had a career which
would bo remarkable if it were not that
of an American woman. She never con
sidered herself too young or too old to
do anything which she thought worth
while. Born in New England, she went
through the experience of a Lowell mill
hand, district schoolteacher and gen
eral houseworker. At SO sho began
Latin, to fit for college, while earning
tho necessary money ly two years' hard
work as a maker of birdcages. At 50
sho became a professional flower painter
and at 63 began her travels.
She mnnaged to go everywhere and
see everything on slender means. She
made her way to Sahara, the Holy Land,
Iceland, Egypt and all over the conti
nent. When her money was almost
gone, sho was contented wilh a deck pas
sage on any sort of a lioat, a third class
passage on a train or a single pony and
no baggage when other travelers needed
a caravan. She naturally saw aud
learned more than wrdmary travelers.
The Queen's Jubilee Eonnet.
Tho Duchess of Bedford recently told
a girls' needlework society in Mile End.
England, that the bonnet which the
queen wore at the jubilee service was
practically made by tho Princess of
Wales. "It was sent home," said her
grace, "looking heavy and ugly. No
body dared return it to the milliner
without the queen's orders, and nobody
liked to ask her majesty for such in
structions. So the ladies in waiting
showed it to tho Princess of Wales,
knowing how clever she is in all such
matters, aud her royal highness, with
her own hands, altered it and twisted it
till it became the extremely becoming
and tasteful headdress which we all ad
mired on that mcuiorablo occasion.
Everybody who saw it thought that tho
queen had never had a prettier lonnet,
but how it came to lw so pretty is news
of today." Philadelphia .Record.

after purchasing a pretty painting from
Mrs. J. Wells Chnmpney. "I havegiv

or serving, exists for one season only in
St. Louis. Iced tea, Russian tea, tea

Miss Kate F.Pierce of. Weymouth,

the Boston Post for the most artistic
and sensiblo design for a bathing cos

interest in physical culture and studied
the question of hygienic dress. She de

Oaida's Personality.
Tho novelist Onida does not, it
Seems, develop in real life into the per
sonality that she is usually accredited
with "an impossible creature, half ad
venturess, half angel and startlingly
beautiful." On the contrary, she is a
decidedly plain looking woman "of
about SO, who overdresses shockingly."
She drives out on the fashionable thor
oughfares of Florence every bright day,
a garish picture against the turquoise
blue satin of her smart brougham, in an
orango colored batiste much trimmed
with lace and a black guipure man
tilla. Her "bleached, flowing, nntidy
hair" is crowned by a broad brimmed
hat of tullo and lace. Her passion is
for dogs, after that for laces and stilet
tos, of which latter two sho has a valu
able collection. Exchange.
When She May Want Prayers.
Miss Louise Imogen Guiney, the poet,
wants to bo postmistress of Auburn
dale, suburb of Boston, where she lives.
Sho says: "It is no eccentricity nor am
bition nor restlessness that makes me
willing to accept should it be given
me an office flung at my door. I must
ariso and hew my way." And then, in
that qnaint stylo which always marks
her letters, 6he adds: "Like all rational
folk, 1 had much rather loaf. Postmis
tressing, luckily, is a thing I can do
that is, until tho fatal day when the
public shall command mo to hand
through the grating 10 5 cent stamps,
67 fours, 20 twos and 9 ones and make
change for them out of a $10 bill.
When that hour strikes, pray for me."

Mrs. John Sherman has not had a pic

It is the custom for tho cabinet officers
and their wives to have a group for a

would not yield her prejudice even on
that occasion. Mrs. Olney, the wife of

A Woman Wood Carver.
Miss Brown of Pittsfield, Mass.. is
making a fortune as a wood carver, or
wood sculptor, as it is proper now to
call the artist who works in that mate
rial. In the first place, sho had a natu
ral adaptation fcr tho work. In the
next place, she trained herself as thor
oughly as a sculptor in marble or a
painter ever did by patient study and
practice of years. Then her shrewd
business instincts led her to make the
acquaintance of the wealthy city people
who were building eplendid summer
residences in the Berkshire hills. She
is occupied from year to year in carving
and decorating the interiors of these
mansions. Boston Transcript.

' Several years ago W. W. Astor, in a
magazine article on Chicago, sneered
at the would lie elegance of that city's
best houses, where, as he said, the door
was opened by a maid instead of a foot
man. This terrible calamity, strange
to say, has been turned in these few
months to a desirable thing. It is a fact
that the trim, white capped maid is
more and more superseding the footman
in other grand houses in other places
than Chicago. Mr. Aster's ban should
