Anions other things, she snys: "Wo need only turn to a record of colonial days to lrum how different was the domestic econ omy of our great-grandmothers and even grandmothers. Today home handicrafts are as antique as the stage coach or flint gun. An up-to-date apartment house home Is run on very different principles from a polonial home. In the latter the women of the family wife and daughters had much to do; to do it properly they' had to be systematically employed in both super visory and manual capacities. The apart ment house, wlih its system of semi-communal domestic labor, and the department store, with Its cheap, ready-mado goods, have greatly diminished the actual activi ties of the Individual household. In by gone days, from apprenticeship In house hold arts, a girl passed, as a rule, di rectly Into the management of her own household. The unmarried woman over 22 or 23 was rare. Tho lapse between the school and college is a comparatively re cant factor. "How Is It with parents who clearly' realize the conditions of a problem and whoso only wiiih is to solve It for the good of their daughters? Their daughter, graduated from school or college, will not In all probability marry for a period of from five to eight years. They know that In view of the complexity of her environ ment she may not be sufficiently mature before she Is 24 or 26 to choose a husband wisely. Naturally, until then they wish her to live at home. The Idea of social helpfulness very likely has combined with that of social amusement In her life, and In many little ways she has co-operated A WOT H BEAUTY IS A JOY POBCVE.. R- T.

Management of a set tlement club, or membership on the com mittee of a charitable society, is only a continuation of Interests and point of view started long ago as a part of her normal life. But the question of domestic activity is still untouched. AVhat Is to be done? I believe that as a rule the Intelligent minority are as much at a loss for an answer as the unintelligent majority of parents. "In this strait, the following plan sug gests Itself: In the groups of institutions concerned with the care of Infants and young children. In babes and children's hospitals, and In Institutions giving train ing In kindergarten and primary school teaching, let normal courses bo estab lished which will aim at making available us soon as possible the volunteer service of their students. Arrangement should be made hot ween the normal iiiHtitutlons and Institutions needing pupil assistants. These normal courses are not to train profes sionalswomen who look forward to a lifetime of nursing or teaching, but to train and mako available for Immediate service women who are In most cases go ing to give only a short period of their lives to the systematic pursuit of the work and who are not ambitious for pecuniary reasons for promotion. This work would continue until the girl married, normally for a period of from five to eight years." Mrs. C.onld'a Suspenders. At the close of tho performance In the New Amsterdam theater, New York City, crowds of women hurried to sea Mrs. George Uould leave the house. When Mrs. Gould and her husband reucliod the car riage wny they fountf scores of those women awaiting them. Now, there was no Intention on the part of any of these women to be offensive, re lates the Chicago Inter Ocean. Tew of them probably were excited by a desire to do homage to wealth. All were moved by the natural and by no means deplorable passion for a sight of the must recent novelty In feminine apparel, namely, Mrs. Gould's suspenders. Mrs. Gould, we are told, wore a "black Jetted net," made with a high girdle and suspender straps. A . white lace ruffled guimpe, with elbow sleeves, long white gloves and a black Jet turban with aigrette, completed her costume. Man will be Interested only In a passing way In the high girdle, the gulmpt and the aigrette. Ills mind will be concentrated, however, on the suspenders, for these will serve to remind him that woman has left him little or nothing to wear that he can now claim exclusively os his own. I-ong ago she reached for his thlck-soled, high-heeled shoes, and although she has Pung thent aside temporarily, she Is likely to pick them up again at any minute. Then she bifurcated her skirts. Then she took up his waistcoat. Then she put on his shirt. Then she appropriated his standing collar. Finally, having donned his derby hst. she sauntered forth after new adven tures. And now, Judging from her Inter est in Mrs. Gould's txperlment, she Is going to put on Ms suspendvrs. Not by I'OUhVcating his clothat alone has woman In these latter days exhibited a dls poaltlon to rob man of his birthright. They tell us that In some parts of the country she Is using Ms slung and smoking his cigar. 6h has snatched from him his ex clusive right to dub life: she takos his Job away from hi in if she wants to, imd she elbows him In the walks of life In which be was fuolUh enough tp think at on time he was supreme. , What I there left for him, nw that she has captured his suspenders? Very little. If she could only learn to step forwurd when getting oft a street car. man s In feriority to her would be established for ever. Bine-Blooded "l.aibor Leader. Miss Gertrude Barnum. national secre tary of the Woman's Trade Union league, who has come to New York to strengthen the labor organisations among the working women of the city, is a now type of the labor leader. Although one of the hardest worked of working women Miss Barnum Is not of what Is generally known as the "working class." She is the daughter of former Judge William H. Barnum of Illi nois, and before she went Into this move ment waB one of Chicago's exclusive social set. After her graduation from school she went Into Hull house, the settlement founded by Miss Jane Addams, as many of the fashionable young women of Chicago do, for the sake of the experience. Be coming interested in sociological problems she took up with earnest purpose the suidy of scientific economics. Then he became convinced that settlement work failed to touch the real difficulties of tho poor. Clob House or Women. The Colony club of New York City is to be social In theory, and athletic In prac tice. Its members are culled from tho inner circles of fashionable life. It Is for women only. It now has a little over 600 mem bers, and when 750 names are on the roll, a waiting list is to be put up. It costs a member 1150 to eemc in, and 1100 a year in annual dues. A few non-resident mem bers are to be permitted at $00 a year. If mere are any girls In the Immediate family of a member who are between 16 and 20 years, they may be admitted for $26 annually. Children of the household are admitted at $10 a year. This is to pre vent "mamma" from making a temporary day nursery of the club house free of cost. For there Is to be a club house for the use of these New York Colonists. That is one of the unique features of the af fair. A lot was purchased in the fashion able sections of Madison avenue. Nos. 120 to JJ4, last year by an advisory .board of gentlemen upon which the name of John I'lerpont Morgan Is found. Architects were set to work, and contracts let, and by the early spring of 1B0S the Colony expects to hove the finest woman's club house In the world-snd the first of the kind erected In New York City. Naturally, the building is to be of colonial architecture, of the severest style. The exterior will be of white brick and marble. It Is to be ;$ by 98 feet in dimensions. There has been no limit as to the money used In fitting and adorn ment. Why should there be when Mrs. John Jacob Astor Is a vice president; Miss Morjan, treasurer; Mrs. Harrlman, president; while on the list of the board of governors are found the names of Mrs. Pnyna Whitney, Miss Kate Brice, Miss Helen Barney, and a doien other million. Mirrssej? It will be seen from the above that the Colony club woman, rich ane blue blooded socially, Is, in a club sense, to be an arhletlc woman as well. One-half of her clubhouse Is to be given up to appliances for the development of muscle and the ex ercise of the body. There are no special arrangements made for mental develop ment, except the assembly room, and that will be used for a doxen dances to one lecture. The Colony club will be a very high toned club of women, but the tone is not of the intellectual nature. Not but that there will be many Intellectual women in its mciiiUitfla'p, WiiWlU4. vu ifeuiU, tr-j ganizatinn Is to serve a different purpose a sort of country club in permanent ses sion In New York. The "Straight Front" Out. Rumors of the passing of the straight front became a certainty at the first cor set demonstration of tho National Dress makers' association in New York City last week. The 'corsets fitted on the white robed figures of the models had distinctly, though slightly, curved steels, and Mme. Baker explained that these curves were to he further accentuated by pads In the front of the gown. The new curved front, however, bears little resemblance to the old. It Is straight below the waist line, and though it curves In at the waist and out above it, this effect is obtained more by the In sertion of a pud above the waist line, be tween the dress and the corset, than by the corset Itself. These artifices, It is argued, will pro duce the all-Important effect of making the abdomen look smaller, ant", at the same time enable modern womankind to secure the beauty of curved lines without sac rificing the comfort of the straight front. With the curved front came other relics of antiquity, u higher bust, a longer hip line and even an approach to the hour glass tha.ie. "We have reached a happy medium," declared Mrs. I.lnda Boss Wade, "between the old corset which held us In at the waist and let us spread out below, and the dreadfully low bust and no waist line of a few seasons ago.

But I am convinced thut American women will never go to extremes in thut resDect." The models were selected to Illustrate the fitting of two opposite kinds of fig ures, the very thin and the over-plump. "You see," said Mme. Baker, when the owner of the thin figure had been Inccd into her armor, "that the slimmest kind of a girl may have the outlines of a fig ure even If she hasn't any flesh on her bones. She doesn't need any padding and it Is always a mistake to put a lot of stuffing on a thin figure. You can see by looking at the face and arms that 11 doesn't belong there."
