This is the season when the romnW-
ion specialist smiles happily in anticipa
tion of a golden harvest later on. This
is the erason when breakfast griddle
cakes and dainty bits of (tannage begin
to Appeal more to Miss Roseleaf than
grapes and oatmeal, and hot rolls and
smoking muffins seduce her heart from
graham bread. This is the season when
she does not like to venture forth into
the wind, but sits near the register in
stead and lets the coal gas begin its
deadly work on her skin. This is the
season when she stays np late o nights
and lies abed late o mornings, when
her cold sponge does not seem inviting,
and when she opens her bedroom win
dow just a crack before she goes to
sleep. All of which means that Miss
Roseleaf will be Hiss Sere-and-ycllow-leaf
if she continues in her reckless
course.
In the first place, she must eleen with
the fresh air pouring into her room as
much as possible. Extra covering on
the bed and a screen at its foot to pre
vent a draft will render the course a per
fectly safo one. Oxygen is even more
potent than cold cream to brins the lilv
and the rose to their proper places. Then
she must not abandon that cold sponge
each morning. It is something with
which no young woman can toy. She
cannot stop taking it for a week and
then resume, unless she wants to leave
the world gracefully in an attack of
pneumonia. But by taking it religiously
every morning and robbing down after
it she can send the blood dancing
through her veins, snap her fingers at
tho cold and make her skin bard, firm
and healthy.
Occasionally Roseleaf mayindnlgein
hot bread, cakes and sausage, but gen
erally she bad lx-tter cling to grains and
fruit. On the days when tho flcshpots
of Egypt tempt her and she falls a vic
tim to her fondnres for fried things, she
should indulgo in double amount of
outdoor exercise.
Every day, rain, snow, dust, hail or
sunshine, ftnsclcaf must go forth and
cultivate bur complexion in the open.
bhe need not also cultivate chapped lips
and cheeks, though, but may wear a
thin, spotless veil.
' At night the oatmeal bag should come
into play. Roscleafs face should be
washed thoroughly in hot water with
soap or oatmeaL Then it should be
rinsed in hot water in which benzoin has
been dropped. Then she should dry her
face and throat gently, dip her fingers
into cold cream and begin a gentle mas-
snge. Iler forehead should be firmly
rubbed with the rips of her fingers. The
place where the little frown leaves its
mark should be stroked up and down.
The place where . laughter leaves its
mark in wrinkles about tho mouth
should be rublied up and down with the
thumb. The lines beneath the eyes and
the crowsfect should be stroked from
the nose outward very gently and very
firmly. Then her chin and throat should
be massaged back aud forth, np and
down, until she knows that not a tell
tale crease can remain. After which
Roseleaf may say her prayers and go to
sleep happy in tii" consciousness that
she lias done what she could for her com
plexion. New York World.
At a recent meeting of a woman's club
the discussion of social customs in Ger
many, following a delightful paper read
by Mrs. Bayard Taylor, brought out
from several speakers the opinion that in
a country where the soldier is so marked
a figure in affairs the status of the worn'
an is not apt to be prominent. She nat
urally suffers by a continual, if involun
tary and scarcely recognized, comparison
with the sturdy and stalwart warrior.
This leads on to the reflection that
tho time is going to come in the history
of the world when tho standing armies
will be swept from the face of the earth.
and that, too, perhaps, by the banding
together of women. The peace associa
tions of the world are by no means idle
even now. At tho lost annual meeting
of the Women s Peace association in
Manchester a letter was read from a
prominent English clergyman, in which
he said: "Women have had a great deal
to do with the admiration of military
heroes. They can do much in changing
popular sentiment about soldiers and
soldiering. And be ends bis letter with.
"I hope that your association's efforts
may be vigorous and effectual against
that wicked and consequently stupid
way of settling differences by murder
which has so long afflicted the world.
Those who believe that the world is not
yet ready for universal peace none the
less admit that it will come as the cen
turies roll on, not "through the fitness of
one nation, but the fitness of many."

The question of what becomes of the
college girl is one of very considerable
importance, and with a view to throw
ing some light on it an examination has
been made of the history of Yi
graduates.
The result is interesting if not deci
sive. Of the first 24 graduating classes
at Vassar, embracing 887 members, 815
were reported as married, 805 as teach
ers, 28 as physicians. 89 aa literary
workers and the rest aa artists, book
keepers and so forth five of
"farmers," and, let as hope, highly
scientific ones.
The main point is whether or not the
college girl is leas available for matri
mony on account of her distinguished
Httaiamenta. The statfatics seem to in
dicate that she ia. Only 88 per cent of
marriages reported among graduates of

The Woman's temple in Chicago gives

union an important commercial stand
in?. The building cost l,2."i0,000, end
the rentals now received amount to $170,

is claimed. The rent roll with all the
offices filled will reach the considerable
sum of S20,000 annually. If the women
can fill this building, they will in a few
years pay for the temple and have a fine
income with which to carry on the work
of the organization.

The establishment at Reykjavik of a
school for tho higher edncataon of girls
is likely to be soon complete. A peculiar
interest is found in the work from the
fact that it indicates a total change in
social aspects in that country, where the
few existing educational institutions of
a good order have been provided exclu
sively for men. The girls generally have
had no other education than that ac
quired at home. They will be indebted
in a certain degree to the VN orld s fair
for so unfair a course being interrupted,
since this brought as the Icelandic dele
gate Mtne, Sigridir Magnusson, who has
been diligently at work for the school,

Taxation CTlUiovt Bepremcntmtloa.
Dr. Hemphill of the Calvary Presby
terian church, San Francisco, lately gave
a Sunday evening lecture on " Woman s
Rights and Wrongs," in which he de
clared his unqualified support of wom
an's right to vote. He called attention
to the different standards of education
for the two sexes; the fact that only
within the present generation women
were permitted to enter the professions;
to the different standard of wages, where
women who do the same work as men
as well or sometimes better are raid Z
per cent less; to tho different standard
of taxation, where women who are prop
erty holders arc compelled to pay in the
same ratio as men, and are yet denied
the right of franchise.
The action of our forefathers in emp
tying the British tea into Boston harbor
was mentioned in connection with the
injustice of taxation without representa
tion, and the speaker said that "if taxa
tion of men under these circumstances
is tyranny, taxation of women under
Mtnilni- conditions is downright infamy.

The number of woman poor law guard

three of the metropolitan unions. In
the present year 171 women have been
elected in 101 different unions. Al
though candidates have not infrequent
ly been rejected in the first instance, it
is a significant fact that, once elected,
these woman guardians are for the most
elected again and again, so that while 39
of the 171 were elected this year for the

the others were re-elections, many for
