TITE OAA SUNT) AT BET2: MAY 3, 1003. it j r r V What the Women Are Doing A duil Kdcst la Wrl(- WENTI Chicago women, young, self-reliant, and weary of "m Culln domination," hav banded together for tha purpoaa of founding in Wyoming a, modal rltjr owned by women, managed T by women, into which mere man must not enter without cleaning: nil shoes on tha front door mat and pleading "by your leave, madam." According to tha Chicago Inter Ocean, Mri. T. Vernette, president of tha Arts Craft Institute, Is to ba tha "Mother Eve" of tha proposed "Adamless Eden." An gent Is already In Wyoming looking for a alta for tha girls' colony, and tha girls themselves are getting ready to purchass plows, carpenter's tools, lumber, and every thing else needed In tha building of a city. And a few miles from where tha manless colony will be fourrded twenty or mors mala students of tha Institute will be work ing and slaving on an "Eveleas" town that Is, it Is to be Eveless at tha start, but the young men have no such stern diet against the other sex as characterises th plans of the girl students. "Girls can ba just aa Independent as men," said Mrs. Morse. "They can build a town just aa wall as men and thoy can do it better If tha men are not around. They can farm as well, they can build houses as well. In fact they can do any ' thing as well, or even better. It Is to prove this that the girls are going out wast to found their town. It will ba a town for women only. Men will not be allowed." Already several meetings have been held by the girls Interested In the plan. Mrs. Morse is to go along aa general adviser of the girls and is to be the first "mayor" of the new town. Then with things once un der way she will return to Chicago and get new recruits for the colony. The plan for the manless town cams recently, when several young men students of the Art-Crafts decided to go west and start a colony. Several of the girls Bug gmted that they would Ilk to join the colony. "We can get along better without wmen for a while," was the ungallant response. And then the scheme to found the opposi tion colony.arose. "Why shouldn't it be a success?" said Mrs. Morse. "It Is going to be a business proposition purely. Sentiment will have no part. Our girls have been taught all the useful arts. We have girls who can make good farmers, ethers who can build houses, others who can weave in fact, do every thing necessary to start a colony. Either Wyoming or Idaho will be chosen in tha heart of the irrigation district. My son Is now looking over the ground, and he will select sites for the girls and for the boys, but they are to be far distant." Man mere man will enter upon th seen of the new female Utopia merely to break ' the ground. Then, having cleared space sufficient for the young women .to erect their houses on and to lay out their gar dens, man will hie himself far away from the scene and allow the female activity to begin. . "Will the gtrs wear bloomers when they work, will they climb ladders, will they hold elections, and above all, will they ever get married?" were among the ques tions propounded to "Mother Eve" Morse. "I don't know," she said. "All those things are mere details. Will they be mar ried? Maybe-Mater much later. The west is a fertile country. The young women can raise produce; they can have a sheep ranch just the same as the men; they can get their provisions from other towns for a time until they are well established. But one thing has been agreed upon there will be helping hands from man until the colony la an established fact then who knows what will happen." tay Off hPstage, Girls. The average girl who goes on tha stag, says a writer In the Broadway Magaslno, can figure on working something Ilk four years before she gets anywhere, miring that time her salary probably will never exceed IjO a week, when she Is working. Borne years she may get one or two weeks ' work; in a full season she may get thirty five weeks' work out of a year. Fifty dollars a week sounds like a great deal of money; but out of It cornea the money for dresses, hats, shoes and these The Yale Dslr Tcnlc Is DecUeg AM It Nabvt , It aeuiiebes, lavlseratas mas vtvlSae tha entrre ka.ir structure, trvductof a yoalhfwl. beautiful. aaUhfol grewth.

Out of It also oomas living expenses, as high In New Tork aa on th road, and possibly higher. At beat there Is only a choice between medium and second class hotels for the 0 actress. , Or woman t know cam out of a mid western stock company, battered at the gates, got Into a small part, played small parts for three seasons, starved last season and Is now a seamstress In Brooklyn. A girl of 24 who O, tha glory of It I "played with Mansfield," and also with Sothern, and also with Hackett, worried along through moderate salaries and th bully ragging of these eminent hroe and at last gave It all up as a bad job. Th shade of Thespls smile Indulgently. Bh Is now a "spotter" on a street railway. Another worked up through a stock com pany to a good place with Nat Goodwin, thence to leading lady of a good "road show" at no time did she get more than 50 a week and she Is now writing light headed Interviews for a dally newspaper. Two others I know who are on newspapers; a hundred others scattered here, there, and nowhere In a hundred different busi nesses save "the" business, as the actor's profession Is always called. They will never go back that Is, they say tbey never will. The stage jobbed them of their young years, their beat years. It taught them a great deal, It la true, but It robbed them and robbed them unmercifully. A sensible girl who reads this will find a moral; don't go on th stage. If you merely wish to sing and dance. It does not matter much one way of the other whether you get behind tha footlights or not. But If yon think you have a "person ality," If you think your are (1) ambitious, (2) talented, or (3) magnetic, then marry the boy who comes around to th front parlor four times a week and all day Bun day, and learn how to cook. It Is better to look back at forty and say, "I know I would have made an excellent actress," than to look back at forty upon a career-after-admlratlon which has turned out to be a career-ofter-wormwood. Woman's Worse in Heavy Metals. On of the few women in New Tork City doing heavy metal work is Miss Norton, whose specialty Is wrought Iron and cop per. "At present my work is done else where," she said, "but at last I think I hava found here the only place In the city where there is no objection to heavy pounding. There Is no one above me and below me is a butcher shop, which offers no obstacles. So I shall soon set "tip my forge in the studio and do my work her. "My work in metals will chiefly be car rying out for architects special designs in fenders, fir Irons, brackets and other metal pieces for particular schemes or styles of decoration. This fender Which you see here is for Long Island. Its chief value Is in Its form, for It has no decoration. "The fender, over six feet long, is curved back at each end and finished in a re-entering curve, which Is curled scroll-like at the extreme ends. Th blows of the ham mer, for it was hammered out of a single sheet of copper, gave the surface its uneven finish, and the upper, edge is rolled over to form a resting place for the feet. "A piece that I find useful and desirable is the long-armed, two-teethed prong In tended for manipulating tha heavy logs of a fireplace. This is done by prying under th log or by placing a prong on each aide and moving It, as tongs cannot do so well. The handle, of course, would be designed or ornamented according to th style of th room." Taking down from the wait another long handled Iron fork, which looked like a formidable weapon, Mlsa Norton explained that it was Intended for toasting either bread or marshm allows without endanger ing th complexion of the toaster. Tha long handle afforded opportunity for deli cate tracery. Another novelty was th headstall, intended for a favorite horse. This was ornamented with silver disks flanking a central ornament, Egyptian In style and enclosing a .central stone 'of amethyst quarts. "Such pieces do not exclude work In sil ver or in jewelry," said Mlsa Norton, ex hibiting some pieces of a tea equipage In hammered silver, left with a dull finish, and other jugs and porringers. How ta Moaoy Goo. Mrs. Bell do Rivera, president of th Equal Suffrage league of Now Tork, said at a recent dinner; "We'd have had th suffrage, w women, long ago, were It not that where women ar concerned men In cline to b a little unfair, a little churlish. Their treatment of women is on a par with old Hiram Doollttle's treatment of his wife. He mad ber keep a cash account and he would go over it every night, growling and grumbling Ilk this: Took her. Han nah oustard plasters, fiO cents; three teeth extracted, 12. There's (ZW In one day, spent for your own prlvat pleasure. Do you think Z am mad of money? " tat Fauna o Women. New Tork state is doing wisely In estab lishing a stat farm for women serving out sentence In penitentiaries and confined in almshouse The excellent effect on health and morals Induced In caring for fowls, working In tb field and garden for both men and women prisoners has been noted gain and again. In Europe employing con victs In agriculture has long been recog nized as a remedial agent In this country also it ha been used with good effect In New Tork City are 800 women who have ben arrested from twsnty to 100 times within th last flv and twenty year.. In Manhattan 1,483 sentences were pronounced on 103 women under different aliases within on year. It la apparent that th usual methods of correction do not Improve these women. In workhouses, out of 600 women, thirty-six wer found Insane In 1806, and In 1907 over 200 exhibited th lowest forma of alcoholism. Of S.2S4 women repeaters. l.61 were between the ages of SO to 60. Like Pip's convict, their story Is "In jail and out of jail" th year round. Besides, the worst fact of all, that these habitual offenders constantly go from bad to worse, th expense Is very great Th New Tork Times reckons th cost of each arraignment to be 112. Flv hundred and eighty-six street women were put In prison 4.730 times In a single year at a cost of over 180.000 and of 14.379 hours of polio servlc. The Auburn state prison has Its woman prisoners at work In garden. Why hava not other Institutions followed suit befor this? If good In one Institution It would be good In all, and It Is a good thing that attention haa been given to the Idea at last James L. Whtbley wishes the tat farm established under a board mad up of th superintendent of prisoners, presi dent and vice president of state commis sioners of prisons and two women, one a member of the Women's Prison association of the city of New Tork, and estimates that expenditures of all sorts In establishing a suitable farm and Its maintenance for one year would cost $100,000.

The fight for th position of truste Is furnishing th wannest contest Id th approaching election la th Typographical union. Mlsa Wilson la leading th field by what appear to be a comfortable margin, having secured th nomination of 161 unions. While Miss Wilson Is highly quali fied In every way to fill this position and makes no capital of the fact, still there Is a strong sentiment among the members of her craft that a good, capable woman on the board would be to their best interest. Miss Wilson represented Columbia union. No. 101. of Washington, D. C, at th Bt. Louis convention In 1904, where her work received much favorable comment. This election will be held May 20. Miss Wilson Is probably the first woman to seek aa International position. She was born In Tuscols, 111., and atrved her ap prenticeship In the office of th Tuscola Kevlew, owned by her brother. She Joined the Typographical union In Chicago about twelve years ago, After working there a few years she obtained a position In the government printing office In 1S96. where she Is now employed. Bhe ask no one to vote for her because she Is a woman, but wishes to stand on her honesty and ability. Os for Leap Tear. bad been calling on tb young lady for many moons, but being bashful, his suit progressed slowly. Finally she de cided tt was up to her to start something, so th next tim he called she pointed to the rose In th button hoi of his coat and said: "I'll glv you a kiss for that ro." A larg open-fare blush meandered over his countenance, but the exchange was made. Then he grabbed his hat and started to leave the room. "Why, where are you going?" she asked. In surprise. "To the ert-florist for more roses," he exclaimed. I. raves from Fashion's Notebook. Stripes are very much to the f..r this season, and their clever arrangement fonim one of tiie must Interesting features of present fashions. It is surpribing what effects can be pro duced with striked materials in the hRiuis of a clever designer. Their very simplicity is baffling, yet ingenuity shows In every line, fur It !i no easy mutter to manipulate stripes satisfactorily. The ensemble is apt to be either too severe or too "mixed." The National Association of Audubon So cieties In New York Is congratulating itself that the feut tiers on hats ibis year are for the most pitrt made of the feathers of barnyard fowls. Turkey feathers play quit art Important part in the decoration for the hats, and (his is something to be thankful for. It Is not ths trimming, but th hat brim, that really counts In the becomlngness, and the wis woman who is of the age when wrinkles are due should never wear a pink or blue brim, but with a dark brim may load th hat with these light colors If she chooses. The flower trimmings this year n.ke It poeolble to have a gay bat, and yet on that will be suited to one's own style. One-piece dresses are bound to come more and more Into favor, as they are even better suited to summer materials, and the separate waist savors ton much of the shirtwaist, of which at last w hav had enouph. As fashion decrees now, there Is no difference between the one Slid two piece costumes, but the girdle, unlvss on reckons with the remontant, and il is a simple matter to convert this year's two piece dress Into this year's "latest'' by tha aid of a few rows of Im rtlon, or what ever the ujinming employed may happen to ba. Borne of the round toques ars really stun ning, but to bo so they must suit the wearer, and to this end a careful arrange ment of the coiffure Is necessary. Toques with the wide hand brims trimmed with a knot of velvet or ribbon at the side and a long aigrette ars pretty, but trying. Lin gerie hais are going to be worn, but only with frocks of the same order, and instead of the flapping sort, th mull or embroid ery, or whatever the material of hlch it Is to be made, must be so arranged MS to show the careful adjustment of any mode hat. These are the hats of today. Tomor row they may be out of fashion. I tat About Woaaea. Laura Blggar, formerly an actress, who Inherited almost ll.tMJ.wO from Henry M. Bennett, a theatrical manager.

She bears a considerable re semblance to Sir Walter. The drooping blue eye look out from beneath a wide, full brow so like that of Ciiantrey's head of th novelist that It might have served as a model.

Three nien were carrying tha child off, and Annie, attracted by her cries, ran up and demanded of th men what they were doing with him. The men told her that he had run sway and they Were taking him back to his mother, who lived In the next street. Knowing that the child did not llv In the next street, Annie very promptly attacked them, niak'ng so strenuous a fight and yell ing so lusiilv for In Id that the kidnapers dropped the boy and fled. When asked by the police where she learned to use her lists so effectively Annie explained that she had been fjghtlng boys all her llf for telling her that being a girl she wss neither ss strong nor as brave as a boy. Now her chief satisfaction In saving the child Is that there were numerous big boys in the street, none of whom dared to com ua and help Iter fl.'ht th meo.
