The same round of teas, and dances, and
card parties, and dinners, only with a new
list of hosts and hostesses, has given so
ciety a merry whirl the last week, and this
week there will be more of the same kind,
but these are ever delightful and then
there la always something new or some
thing different to talk about. There were
soma really gorgeous affairs last week,
most of them given In honor of someone,
though there was nothing especially large.
There was almost no end of skating par
ties and little chafing dish suppers after
and ' this .week,: If the weather permit,
there will more of the same kind and In
addition society will have Its first bob aled
According to authorities on the correct
thing, graceful dancing has become a lost
art and evidently the eaatern fashionables
have accepted the announcement as a fact,
for. they have set about learning theold
steps and reviving the graceful figures of
the minuet with a diligence that pro
vides lucrative occupation for masters of
the same, and that threatens to put an
end, for the time at least, to that popular
fashionable romp, the cotillion. It la held
by these critics that there Is nothing aee
.thetlo In the present day so-called round
dances; that they develop muscle and In
ternal dlsordera, rather than bodily grace,
and s plea Is made for a revival of the
muslo and the ateps that call th body
Into harmonious action. While this con
demnation may be a bit sweeping there la
no doubt that the "terpalchorean art" has
sadly degenerated In some respects and
one needs but look on for an hour to be
convinced. Thla la true even among the
aet that bride themselves upon doing things
right and one haa to think but a minute
to recall certain of the fashionables who
present a truly remarkable appearance on
the .ball room floor, the loose-Jointed danc
ing of some being exceeded only by the
absolute stiffness or rigid contortions of
others, as they complacently gallop or
move with automatic- Jerks over the floor.
The wonder of It is that the delusion has
clung to some so long and the fact that
it haa makes one almost question society's
appreciation of the ludicrous.
As for the cotillion It, too, haa departed
somewhat from the original deftn':.lon, but
when it la remembered thatl novelty con
stitutea the chief merit of such affa'rs thla
la not ao much to ba wondered at; however,
one can't help an occasional mental com
parison of the stately figures of the
mlnuette, with the scramble of fix men
in dress sulta, over a ball room floor, in
pursuit of three live chickens or a young
woman in evening toilette trundling i a
wheelbarrow full of vegetables about the
waxed floor and yet these are figures of
recent fashionable ootllllons.

The sufruge movement having grown
beyond the ability of personal or social
Influence to retard It. the opposition to
further extension of the rights of women
have enlisted the assistance of a number
of women writers In an effort to render It
unpopular, from a woman's standpoint,
through the presj. Such articles have been
especially numerous of late and regretably
overdrawn and sweeping, as haa been
proven In the columns of newspaper dis
cussion they have occasioned. The most
recent of these Is an article on "Woman's
Assumption of Sex Superiority." In the
North Amerlcsn Review, by Mrs Annie
Nathan Meyer. Considering what has made
It possible for women to raise their voices
In public, whether from the platform or
In the press, It seems a pity that, having
attained this privilege any woman should
direct It against the very Influence that
haa glv-n It to her, and It Is a question
after all whether she can Beek to Influence
public. opinion against her own sex without
doing herself and her cause more harm
than good. No matter what one's opinions
may be regarding woman suffrage, the
thinking person can scarcely be greatly in
fluenced by such attacka and accusations
and the fact that they are directed by
women against the conscientious efforts of
members of their own sex, must disgust as
many aa are influenced by them.
Here are a few bits or advice recently

The following circular letter is sent out
this week by the General Federation sec
retary to the club women of Nebraska:
Dear Madam President: Sometime since
the directors of the General Federation of
Women's Clubs sent out an open letter to
the federated and unfederated clubs. The
supply, however, was not equal to the
demand at least In our state.
Havlne? In mind that not a few of our
clubs are considering the matter of joining
the General Federation of Women'e Clubs
before the next biennial meeting, which
convenes In St. Louis May It, 1H04, your
secretary, through the medium of this cir
cular letter, presents a few or tne most
important arguments presented in the
open letter. .
'The great beneficent movements for
women and children today are belns car
ried forward by women, en masse, not by
the Individual woman, for the crying need
is so great that only the streDgth of union,
power of co-operation and oneness of fed
erated purpose can nope to sucoeea.
"It must be self-evident that the strongest
club, led by the wisest, most brilliant and
oooleat-bralned woman, is yet unable to
Cope with and carry forward any of these
far-reuching plans as effectually as when
allied with other clubs of like objects. The
movements are going forward, and not to
be a factor In them ia to linger, perhaps
unconsciously, with the customs and tra
ditions of the past to stand aside and let
the world go by. .
"With federation comes not only a breath
of outlook, of purpose, of association, of
work which means growth, the thing su
premely to be desired in the Individual or
the club, but there Is that which cannot
be put Into cold words a broader charity,
a more tolerant spirit and a sweetness and
Strength of sympathy and co-operation
among strong, reserved women, widely sep
arated, vet atandlna together In a concerted
movement for common good. With It comes
a reciprocity, rrom lacK or wnicn, wmiuui

"Federation flnds Its true expression Ijj
reciprocity, an equation composed of 'givo
and 'take.' Having outlined the known
quantity of 'take.' It may not be without
profit to consider how 'give' fan best be ac
complished through general federation,
which calle for closer relationship and
united effort, hearty co-operation in en
larged opportunities and unity of action
with diversified methods.
"The relation of the General Federation
to the Individual club Is that of the Hm to
the wheel. The Individual club Is the hub,
the various Interests of clubdom the spokes.
Perfect though the hub may be, the rad
iating spokes without a rim form . very
imperfect wheel that would at best make
little progrees. The General Federation is
the strong tire, the band of steel uniting
all Interests, imparting strength at every
nnint nf contact, formlnar a wheel of sym
metry and power to carry forward great

sponsibility In the larger work, that It Is
enough that It dust its own room! Or If It

door, can It wlselv say It proposes to sweep
In any direction it desires? .
