The Mnn U'ho Forgot III * Mlfo l\tih- Ion unit rniiilnliio "Now tills Is olopnnt , Isn't It ? " In- qiurc'l the a\ibttrn \ liniroil pill , ono of u quartette of young Indies of tlio typewriter writer , glancing admiringly round the now rooms hot aimrtfor thulr use In the Commercial club'H restaurant recently opened. "Yes , Indeed , It is nlco. 1 am fco glnd they concluded to admit Indies , " replied the the tall girl with the Amer ican Bounty roses un the front of her fliess. "Say , girls , " said the little brunette with fair leather straps on her jacket and a pencil In nor hair , "have you liotiuctl the slush In the papers lately about some man mistreating his stenog- Suphor , Unit is , scolding her and act- ng the brute irciiornU.vj"1 "Yes , but I flon't believe a word of it , " said the sad looking blonde , "I have been working a Rood while , and I have never been Scolded yet unless I deserved it. " I Once worked up in the northern nurt of the statoyou knownnd my boss , wlso was elected roprcbcntnUvo by the way , used to got drunk , and once In a while bo would go to sleep after dictating his let ters , bolero I could got them written olT ; then I iibcd to leave the olllce until ho would brace ui > and walk out himself , then I would no back and finish my work. But that Is the worst time 1 ever bad , and he never said anything out of the way to mo. " "You all know What an awful crank hiy boss Is said to bo , " said the girl with red hair. "I ban heard so much about him that I was so bcarvd when I first vent to work that I made n complete fail- tire I did not Kot over half of any of the loiters ho dictated , and made Mich a bungling moss of it I was tempted to run away from the ollleo and never go back. You know I was awfully worried at that lime over my brbtbor , who was in trouble , and take it altogether , I was so rattled I did not know ray best fellow's name. Of course , the bobs could not sign the letters , but when I got up cour age to tell him that 1 believed I could do tlio work bolter if he would give mo one more trial , what do you suppose ho said ? \Voll , ho said : 'It is impossible to. half do anything with so many people 'round. I coulu not half dictate the letters. But those janitors will not bother again until you got more used to the work. ' Then I remembered for the lii > t time that a couple of colored men were clean ing the windows while the letters wore being dictated , though I had not noticed them before. He had made the oxciibo forme out of the kindness of his own heart. I toll you , now , I appreciated it , and if all 'cranks' are as considerate as the gentleman who dictates letters tome mo , I Mty , long live the cranks. I think it is all bosh about men mistreating ffirls who work for them and do the K'lVk ir any kind of shape. They caven'ttlme. " > > ' 'Well , " said the girl with a low fore head and earnest eyes , who had her hair parted because she know the now style was becoming to her , ' 'I have a boss ! who Is as kind to mo us he is to any ono , but ho is a resurrectionist.1' "A what ? " bald the other three in a chorus. "A resurrectionist. Ho digs up long dead and buried old jokes and tolls them to mo when ho is not busy. Only yesterday ho told mo about the man who wanted to do something religious and could think of nothing but taking up a collection. It is hard , yqu know , but as the poor old joke goes shivering down the hall back to its grave 1 laugh as hard as I can , and so drown the rattle - tlo of its dry bones and take life as easy us possible. Every girl I am acquainted with is treated us well ns she deserves. Borne girls are dreadfully thoughtless ; will allow young men to como too see them at the olllce and talk for half un hour or longer ; or some other girl , and they will chatter and giggle ana chow gum until they ought to bo thrown down the elevator shaft. "That's HO , " said the girl with the roses , "I like young men , " with a demure glance in the direction of the flowers , "but 1 don't think they should hang 'round the olllce. They had hotter got out and Ibid something to occupy their minds during working hours. Hut It is just as you all say , if a girl gets abused in any way it is her own fault. She should get on her dignity and stay on it ; the man is not born who would attempt to scold u dignified woman if she doc.s her work as it should bo done , and you know , you could not bo really dlgnilled and neglect your work. Of coui'tau men are cross sometimes , they have so much to worry them , but bore in our order. I sny , aren't things gotten up nicely by the Commercial club. I move wo como hero for lunch all the time. " * Talking of men , there Is ono thing at least in which woman is the superior of any man alive and that is in making peach preserves. In these davit of long dibciibslonb and philosophical reason : i- ings , as to the part the nineteenth century woman should play in the drama of life , it is nice to know that Wlillo man in his superiority knows what peach preserves and plum pro- curves , and all kinds of jellies are , there is no man born who can make them. Thobo early September days and the ( ibundunco of the crop make all woman think about the things they nro going to "put up. " The readers of Tun SUNDAY Hin : are no exception , and a few suggestions and well tried recipes may not bo out of order. To muko pench preserves take equal l parts of granulated sugar and largo cling stone peaches. Put jubt enough water over the hiigar to wet It thor oughly and then put on the stove and rat It boll for a tow minutes , carefully bklm- inlng should any bluck bpockB rise 11to the surface. Pure tof the poaches either with a fruit knife or by pouring boiling ' water over them , letting them stand for U few moments if you try the latter way , when the skins will be easily removed. : Pour the boiling sirup over the peaches knd lot them stand until the next day. Then put them on the lire and boll for forty-llvo minutes , or until the peaches are clear and well cooked. Put away in linull quantities , as they will not keep to well if they are disturbed. To muko plum preserves proceed in much the sumo way , except that It is not necos- tary to pure the plums , and cara imibt be tukon that the plums are not too ripe. If they are dead ripe the preserves will bo "tough. " That in , common red plums. Other varieties must be pared , and being ripe is no objection. But the common red plums wake the best preserves ruitl the nicest jelly In the world. To make plum jolly , Inferior plums d.iy bo Ukod , and it is u good plan to sort the plums , taking the nicest for proborvos and the inferior ones for jelly. Pour enough wntor over the plums to cover them nicely and let them boil for a. few \uoineuU. Itoinovo uud dnilu oil the water. Take one-third ns much sugar as you h'avo juloo nnd put over the fire. boiling for twenty minutes very hard. If you are not particular us to the shade of thojelly.lt will be much richer nnd nicer If you will'stlr the plums "all to pieces'1 and squeeze them in llanncl cloth and tieo this with the juice Instead of fimplv draining oft" the wntor. Tlio jelly will bo much darker In color nnd richer flavored. After the water has been drained oil the plums n very nice marmalade can bo made of them by taking ono third as .much sugar as you Jituo fruit nnd boiling same for about half an hour f-tlrrlng a good deal. Homo ladies prefer to add cinnamon flavoring to this innr- nmlndo. It is good either with or with out flavoring , and of course any season ing may bo used that IH preferred. To make gruno jolly it Is absolutely neces sary to take the grapes before they be come lee ripe. After grapes are thor oughly ripe they will not make good jelly , as the grnpo sugar sjwlls it ; It "gets glass in it , " as the children pay. Grape Jelly is easy to make , and the same directions will answer as those given for the plum. Another thing which Is holier homo made llian any possible to obtain at the markets is 'Chili ' snuco. " Ono of the best rules which has been tried for many years for making this winter luxury is to take twelve largo fully ripened tomatoes , three or four poppers , two onions ( if de sired ) , two tablespoons full of salt , two of sugar , ono ol cinnamon and three cups of vinegar. Chop all together and boil one and one-half hours. CUIIHEKUS. Her idoni nro of the most correct de gree of advancement. She attends till the women's congresses , councils , mass meetings , ( her brother , who IB very peed about taking hot- there , disrespect fully calls them ' "paw-wows" ) she thirsts to cast n vote , und she believes with Itev. Sum Jones thut "u woman can be anything und everything slio Dlcases but the father of a family. " "Do you know , " she began , after the preliminary "swearing in" hud been accomplished , "I couldn't bear to con fers it to nny of our opponents , least of all to a man , and it is a keen mortillca- tion to 1110 that I fool sobut the truth is , I wouldn't for all the world work under a woman in any capacity whatever ! " "You wouldn't ? " Itas my duty to be disapproving. "No. " huinblv. Then wickedly , ' "Would you ? " "I never tried it , " faltered her confi dante , but when further pressed to say whether I wanted to try it , I was obliged to admit that T didn't and to add witb a troubled air , that I couldn't for the life of mo toll why. "Nor can I , " and my confidante's fair forehead wrinkled itself anxiously. "As 1 said , I am dreadfully ashamed of my self for the prejudice and I can't ' analyze it. It isn't that , as is often baid , women are mean , or deceitful , or overbearing , or mo.ro deficient in the business virtues than men. But , reason to the contrary , the idea of being employed by or held accountable to another woman fills mo with horror. " "And I suppose that's ' the way other women would feel about being employed by us , " put in her hearer comfortably. My confidante waxed bolder. "I think every woman fools so , " she announced , "only , 'like , us , she is ashamed to acknowledge it. And , while I um in the confessional , I might as well toll you another perfectly dreadful thing , in the hope , I will admit , that you will say you have always thought so , too. It's about the female clergy. " "Well ? Have you been converted by Dr. Buckley and St. Paul ? " "Oh , no , " in great earnest , "not so bad as that. I believe in women ministers , I admire nnd respect them , I sometimes think I would like to be ono myself , but I wouldn't go to hear ono. Somehow I couldn't look up to her or regard ht-r as a 'spiritual pastor and master , ' as I could with a man. Yet I know women nro twice as religions and three times as good as men. Isn't it dreadful ? " ' I don't know , " I returned , catching the infection of candor. ' 'Now that I think of it , it would seem strange to me to sit under a woman pastor. I would have the instinctive feeling , 'Why. you can't tell mo anything I don't know ; you're only another woman.1 Yet men don't fool that way. They are willing to lot their follow man lay down the re- ! ligious law to them. "Aro you so sure of that1 it occurred to mo. "Perhaps they reason as you and I do , and that is why so few of them go to church. " And wo parted , wondering if herein lay the true cause of the masculine nonattendance - attendance nt the sanctuary , which has always grieved and perplexed woman kind. * * "People hardly spc-ak , nowadays , of being hospitable ; they 'pay social debts' as if it were all a system of exchange. Horrid ideal Am I in debt to you for this chair I'm sitting on , for those choco lates [ disposed of the other day and for the amount of your valuable time my visits consume ? The whole thing is a farce. The original idea of visiting and being visited was mutual social pleasure how far away and ridiculous it Bounds these days of 'crushes' and 'duty calls' and 'mnstbo' invitations ! "As to neighbors , time was when the gracious custom prevailed of the old residents always culling on the new ar- rivalH. Now that lias dropped into n desuetude that is not inocuous. The ar ticles that appear In the papers on the ottlquotto of visiting are highly amus ing , although they make both hobtcss and gut'Bt uncomfortably self-conscious , I should think , from the minute and ponderous treatment they give tlio sub ject , as if straight wore the gate and narrow the way , and few there were who found it. "Isn't it n disgraceful perversion of un intrinsically good institution that the woman 'who cannel entertain' beciuibo she boards , or is too poor , Is obliged to refuse to bo 'entertained ? ' Custom keeps us from Hoeing what an inbult it is to her would-be boats. "If I had the world my way which I never expect to come to puss I would have hospitality returned to UH pristine simplicity. I would ask people to my hoiibo because I liked to have them there and for no other reason. When they came I would treat them like reasona ble beings , not like spoiled babies who iniiHt bo constantly lunnscd or gormands who must be 'fed up' as u compensation for enduring my society. I would ex pect to visit on > the Bamo terms , only * then- " . A eudden idea btruck the speaker. "Then , " she wont on with well-simulated concern , "I might perhaps receive no encouragement to come hero dally. " * The San Francisco Confederation of Women bus been organized. In the language of its constitution the confederation iu designed to "advise , ad vocate and carry into effect measures ' for the public goodto suggobt , oncourugo and promote social and political re forms , uud generally to advise and act for the public welfare. " In the mooting room at 102 O'Fnrrell btrcet there were nearly 100 ladles. Organization had been proceeding through two or three nieetingti , but not until ft few duyH wgo wui the society , ready to tnko ui the serious business for which it lias boon formed. * * The ofllcern of the confederation nro as follows : President , Mrs. Mifria F. Ornv ; llrst vice president , Mrs. Flora K. llowloy ; second vice president'Mrs. Kmma Gregory ; third vice president , Mrs. Florence P. Mathcson ; correspond ing secretary , Mis. Kiln M' .Po61b * . 're cording secretary , Mrs. Alice C. AVater- man ; financial secretary , Mrs. Annie B. Bradstrcot ; treasurer , Mrs. May L. Harrison. There are committees on education , sanitation , reforms , philan thropy , political science , parliamentary law , legislation , judiciary nnd finance. The gypsy element of the population that camps on .the outskirts of the sum mer settlements for tlio ostensible pur pose of disposing of sweet grass baskets deals also , says the Now York "World , in futures of various shades of gold , ac cording to the amount of silver which crost-es the palm. There was n weird looking old creature selling her two borts of wares to a piazza full of young women the other morning , who revealed some of the secrets of the profession. She had taken n CO cent fee for tlie'rend- ing of one fair pulm. Suddenly she in terrupted herself to remark : "There , thorol A wonderful fortune ] Give me 75 cents more nnd I'll rend you the most wonderful thing. " 'No , " said the girl' laughing , "no more. Give mo my GO cents' ' worth of wonder and that'll do. " Entreaties on tno gypsy's part wore in vain. The strong-minded young woman would pay no more than CO cents for any destiny whatever. So the prophetess read on. When she had finished she re marked with n sigh : "And to think that for n little more I could have given you a light complected young man as well as a dark , and a wed ding in five months instead of a year ! " "If you want to be a model house wife follow my example , " says Lillian Lewis. "Man's ' strongest love is in his stomach , and the surest way to keep his love is to feed him well. If you want to make your self a good housekeeper , a companion able and a beloved wife don't devote all your time tp your finger nails nnd your novel. Give the very early morning to housework. An hour in the morning is worth the whole afternoon. When dirty house cleaning is being done wear long rubber gloves and keep a cut lemon at the sink to remove stains , and to rub your hands with before commencing to bake. Keep your hands beautiful even though you make them work ; beauty and work are easily combined. Never indulge in the luxury of a wrapper. A wrapper has an exasperating way of looking slovenly on the slightest provo cation : the plainest skirt and basque with a bit of embroidery in neck and sleeves is always exquisitely neat. On scrubbing days wear an apron made of oil cloth. Always bo neatly combed on sweeping days , protect your hair by a cap. Don't ' toll your husband you nro tired. A labor of love does not make ono tireu. After dinner get your hus band a cigar and three matches , and if he don't love you after all this , got divorced. " * * 4t A man noted for his forgetful and ab sent minded ways , rather late in life be came a bridegroom , and ho and his newly made wife started on their honey moon. Arrived at the railway station she took n boat in the waiting room while ho went to look about the tickota and lug gage. By the time this was done lie had only four minutes to spare. "Where does the B train start from ? " he asked a porter. "That way , sir ; No. 4 platform. ' ! Making a rush for the place indicated , ho fixed himself comfortably in the cor ner of a smoking carriage and took out his pipe. A few minutes after the train had started , however , when ho was searching in his pocket for fubcos , ho came across two railroad tickets. IIo looked at them in amazement for n moment or two , und then it flashed over him what he had done "Good heavens1' ! ho gasped , "I have forgotten my wife ! " lie left tlie train nt the first stopping place , and fortunately there was another very soon to carry him back. She said she thought lie was an awful long time looking after that luggage , and scolded him a little , but afterward forgave him when ho told her the truth. Fashion Notes. This is what dressmakers call the in termediate season. The latest fantasy in veils is fine ac cordion plaited tulle run with rows of colored ribbon. Lovely porcelain spoons accompany the dainty new cafe noir sots , the cups of which are smaller than over before. Changes and rumors of change are in the air , but summer styles still hold supreme premo nt the great centers of social activity. A pretty semi-diaphanous textile called Spanish gronndino is much used this summer for drc-asy afternoon and evening toilets. The "fried oyntor server" ja a novelty , and a very rlcli fancy piece in Hilvor. A wide , short blade , with handle decora tions of shells , cordage , otc. The Hour do 11s bow terminates the crepe bash which outlines the waist of most of the modish cool weather gowns , designed by Parisian modistes. Riding habits of dark blue or brown Holland , of the .severest tailor build , nro f-ccn upon the most fashionably dressed oqucbtrlonnen at watering places , Cornflower blue is to bo the choice color in millinery If ono is to judge from the choice ollcctu developed upon num berless fetching clmpeau models. The lluml'oyant and florid style of dress , for which this beason will go down in the chronicler of dross as the supreme climax , is going out in u bltizo of glory. Among the now handsome black fab rics that are to bo &o popular this autumn are Muscovite wilks heavily rop- ped , with gold threads on every third cord. cord.Unless Unless all signs fall , the autumn will see the liibt of the atrocious color com binations , the inartistio oxtravagati7as in design , which have dominated the harlequin mode.

Aluminium hairpins and bolt buckles nro among the pretty trifles now wrought in this motul. They are so much cheaper than the silver knick-knacks , nnd withal BO exceedingly attractive that they do- borvo to be purchased. A pretty model , presenting few diffi culties in copying , oven to the amateur , is of the black silk gnu/o. with three rows of white insertion , let into the ma terial before plaiting , u bolt of white and n Waited yoke , also of white lace.
