Brooklyn is celebrating the completion
t>f the building of the Young Women’s
Christian association, an institution
which promises to do an important work
for Brooklyn, where so many working
women reside. The building, which is
erected on a site partly purchased and
partly given by the late Congressman S.
B. Chittenden, is the munificent gift of
Cornelius B. Wood, and is erected as a
memorial of his wife, who was a sister
of Robert C. Ogden, of the firm of John
Wanamaker. Mrs. Wood was a woman
of an exalted type, and her life was nota
ble for its spirituality and charity. Mr.
Wood is a retired banker of wealth. In
December, 1890, Mr. Wood offered to
give $125,000 to erect a building for the
association, provided SIOO,OOO additional
was raised, as a permanent endowment.
“This gift,” said Mr. Wood in his letter,
“is made to honor a life of charity and
love by husband and children in mem
oriam of one who was a friend of work
ing girls, who rejoiced when the associa
tion was organized, who labored for it
and had faith in the grand work it would
Mr. Wood not only gave $125,000, but
increased this to $142,000. The endow
ment fund now amounts to $122,501, and
the association is aiming to increase
this to $150,000. The building is cen
trally located, and architecturally is an
ornament to the city. The vestibule
contains a big open fireplace. Opposite
to this is the secretary’s room. On this
floor are also the cloakroom and the en
trances to the elevators, and through a
great well in the center one can look up
through the six stories to the roof. In
the basement are a medical department
and a fully equipped pharmacy, a gym
nasium and the intelligence office. The
library, already filled, is on the second
floor. It is a light and airy room and is
furnished with a gallery and storage
apartments. A room for typewriters is
off the library, and from this floor access
is had to the gallery of the memorial
Over the hall on the third floor is a
large lecture room with a seating capac
ity of 400, and there is a well furnished
parlor connected with the lecture room.
The fourth and fifth stories are devoted
to eighteen classrooms, where millinery,
dressmaking, sewing, embroidery, cook
ing, language, history, bookkeeping,
arithmetic and penmanship are taught
by eighty-seven instructors. The memo
rial hall which has been alluded to is a
beautiful room containing seats for CSO
and has been furnished by the Alumnae
association of the Brooklyn Heights sem
inary. This hall has been named in
honor of Mary A. Brigham, who was a
famous teacher of her time. —Cor. Phil
Boston’s Mixed Club.
Among the new clubs of Boston is the
Unity, a club composed of men and
women whose object is the further
ance of art and the promotion of social
interests. Its members include a large
proportion of the artists of the city, and
it inaugurated its second season by a
water color exhibition.
There are no lack of men’s clubs and
of women’s clubs in Boston, as in other
cities; but the club where men and
Women meet is as rare as are most ideal
things in this world. The regulation
women’s club is a rather dreary affair,
as it is now conducted. Instead of hav
ing parlors, reading room and dining
room always open, as is the case with
men's clubs, where members may drop
in at any time and meet each other, and
invite friends and enjoy informal socia
bility, the women’s club unlocks the
doors of its portals for some one after
noon a week when its members and
guests assemble, and after routine busi
ness, carried on in strict parliamentary
order, a paper is read and discussed as
formally as at any public meeting, and
then the club adjourns till another yveek,
to go through the same routine again.
This may be all very well in some ways,
but it is not the social pleasure that club
life should render possible.
The Unity club here starts out on
other lines. It is, first of all, a club for
men and women together. It has se
cured ideally beautiful rooms on Ar
lington street, overlooking the public
gardens. It has a fine gallery for pic
ture hanging, and it is based on an idea
that should develop, as the club grows
stronger, into a very attractive and
happy social center.—Boston Cor. New
The Dally Morning Scrub.
Soon the days will be crisp and snappy
and when you awake in the morning
and thrust one bare foot out from under
the cover you will give a little smothered
“ouch” and cuddle down under the
blankets again. Every one knows the
kind of morning we mean, when the
window paues are covered with delicate
traceries left by the artist Jack Frost,
and when a compromise is effected by
putting on one's stockings and shoes in
Now it is just this kind of weather
that makes us neglect our toilet. We
hurry through our ablutions, giving a
little dab at our face—an apology for a
wash—and get down stairs as
l|uicyiy as we can. When we go out
doors we are shivery and creepy; we
don't feel more than half awake, and
we are very uncomfortable altogether.
Os course it is ever so much nicer to
bathe in a warm room in tepid water
and go through every detail of the day's
toilet with a leisure that is a positive
luxury, but when the weather prohibits
don’t neglect the details on that account.
A cold sponge bath, exposing but one
portion of the body at a time, followed
by a quick, brisk rubbing, sets your
blood to tingling, your flesh glows with
a warm pink tint and you feel like a
bird, not a half awakened creature who
has but one aim, and that is hug the
If the sponge bath seems too lengthy
an operation, at least bathe neck, arms
and face well with soap as well as
water. There is nothing so good for the
complexion as a regulation scrub, and
nothing that will so soon make it muddy
as a little dab that many women con
sider equivalent to a genuine bath.—■

Women and Theology.
“Women in the Pulpit” was the sub
of discuasion at a ‘Jmoruimz lecture”
EOPLE’S PARTY PAPER, ATLANTA, GEORGIA, FRIDAY, DECEMBR
In 'Boston recently. 'The “drift" of opin
ion among the speakers seemed to be
that women should be allowed to preach.
The Rev. Lorenzo Haynes, of Waltham,
said: “It is generally conceded that
women are more religious than men—
certainly they form by far the larger
proportion of church members. In every
church today they do a large part of the
work. Take out that work and not a
church could stand. As three-fourths
of the church members are -women, I
know of no reason why the same pro
portion of ministers should not be wom
en.” Mrs. Jane L. Patterson, of Rox
bury, spoke of what is being accom
plished for the development of women
since Tuft’s college opened all its de
partments to them. “There is no cir
cumscribing annex,” she said, “no speci
fications to hinder their progress. A
woman may enter as a man does. If
she wishes to study electrical engineer
ing, she can have thorough instruction;
if she desires a course in the divinity
school, the chance is given her.”
The Rev. Mary T. Whitney, of Cam
bridge, could not give the same account
of Harvard. She had applied for ad
mission to the divinity school and re
ceived from President Eliot a letter of
regret that her application could not be
favorably considered, precedent being
against it. A Miss Spofford, of Sioux
City, told her hearers that she had built
up a congregation in lowa, and thought
that as a woman she enjoyed superior
facilities of making her influence felt in
the home life of her parishioners.—Bos
The Rustling Underskirt.
There is no more melodious sound on
earth to the shell-like ears of the wom
an of today than the frou-frou of silken
skirts. It is as soothing to her senses as
the plashing of limpid waters. She is
content to wear a gown of last year’s
serge, and during the summer she was
satisfied with cambric or gingham, if
only the petticoat underneath, from
which her little feet peeped in and out,
was composed of the proper material,
which material is taffeta —changeable,
striped or even plain. Pinked ruffles are
giving place to flounces of lace, fes
tooned and caught here and there with
knots of velvet or ribbon.
So widespread is this tendency to rus
tle that the shops are offering petticoats
advertised as “rustle skirts,” and the
term catches more women in fifteen
minutes than a placard bearing the sign
of “silk petticoats” in letters a foot high
would catch in a week.
While the rustling craze lasts it is an
excellent opportunity to lay in a supply
of white maslin underskirts, which are
bound to return sooner or later, and the
dainty ones, with their frills and em
broideries, make one wonder if, after
all, it is not more refined and fitting to
wear pure white underclothing, upon
whose surface every spot can be seen,
and which can be restored to its original
purity by a flying trip to the laundry.
What would our grandmothers—those
dear departed dames—have said to our
wearing undergarments which did not
show the dirt?—New York Herald.
It would be a great help to mothers
and would save not only much needless
anxiety but also many a doctor’s bill
and sometimes even a life, if the dis
tinction between a slight and a serious
ailment were more generally understood.
Overcaution and not undercaution is
apt to be the prevailing tendency. A
child or young person complains of se
vere pain in the chest, and the mother
at once fancies it is pneumonia, or if the
trouble is in the bowels peritonitis is the
dreaded enemy, and so on.
“Pain without fever,” said a well
known physician, “may be very severe
and may cause much suffering, but in
acute attacks it is not dangerous.” “If
you had this amount of pain that you
complain of,” he said to the patient who
had hastily summoned him, “in any in
flammatory disease, you would be in a
raging fever; if you have no fever you
need never worry.”
Most serious illnesses are preceded by
a chill. This is a symptom that should
never be disregarded, and it is always
safe to put a child to bed and stop his
food. Warmth and dieting will be found
to be the best remedy for any ordinary
indisposition, while for the beginning of
serious trouble it is often the only thing
that can be done until the disease de
clares itself.—New York Tribune.
Another Woman Arctic Explorer.
Travel in the far north has hitherto
been attempted only by men, but the
year 1892 has witnessed the breaking up
of this monopoly. Mrs. Peary accom
panied her husband to a point farther
north than any white woman has ever
before penetrated, and early last sum
mer Miss Elizabeth Taylor started from
Winnipeg for the McKenzie river delta,
and from this expedition she has just
returned. Miss Taylor is by nature a
traveler and by education an artist, and
is greatly interested in natural history.
She started on her trip alone and made
it alone successful to the end.
She is the first woman explorer that
has ever ventured into the polar regions
On her own account, and with an
amount of pkick and steadfastness that
would have done credit to a strong man
she has carried out her programme and
completed her round trip to the far
northern forts of the Hudson Bay com
pany. Os the results of her trip we can
as yet know only in a general way.
This much may be said, however, her
sketchbook is full of drawings which
are not only of great historical and
topographical interest, but also of a
very high order of artistic merit. —For-

Woman Suffrage in Vermont.
The great event of the day in politics
for women is the passage of the munici
pal suffrage bill in the Vermont house
of representatives by the large majority
of 149 to 83. Laura Moore, secretary of
the W. S. A., writes that the Vermont
men are as kind and generous as are the
men of Wyoming or Kansas, and when
ever -we can get enough of the right sort
into a legislature Vermont women will
receive justice at their hands.
Close upon this success, however,
comes news of defeat in New Zealand,
where the long agitated bill to give full
suffrage to women has failed again to
pass. One of the main points in the dis
pute was the unnecessary proviso in
serted by the upper house allowing
women to use voting papers instead of
going in person to the booths; for when
ever women are allowed to vote they are
ready to follow the rules.
French women, it appears, have been
drinking orchid tea for fifty years, and
the consumption of this expensive deli
cacy has much increased of late. The
orchid from which the tea is made is a
member of one of the handsomest and
most expensive families which grows in
the forests of Bourbon and Mauritius.
The decoction is easy. You just lay the
leaves and stalks in cold water, about
one gram to a teacup—more or less,
according to taste—close the vessel tight
and boil for ten minutes. The tea may
be sweetened.—London Society.
Exhibits of Woman’s Work.
The industrial features shown at the
Mechanic’s fair in Boston include the
establishment of a woman printer in ac
tive operation, an exhibit from the laun
dry of the Home for intemperate Wom
en, a display of factory work by women,
of silk culture from the woman’s prison >
and other industries carried on by wom
en, such as the culture and preserving
of small fruits and of beekeeping.—
A Year’s Work of the W. C. T. U.
From the reports of the W. C. T. U.
in Denver it may be computed that more
than $300,000 has been raised and ex
pended by the different societies through
out the United States during the past
year, and more than 150,000 women are
united in the cause of temperance. Two
hundred and eighty-two coffee houses,
friendly houses and feeding rooms have
been established and are maintained by
A Club Without a Debt.
The Ladies’ club is the only clab in
Sydney, Australia, which is not in debt.
Their rooms are in a central and conve
nient locality, where tea, coffee or cocoa
are served at any hour, where dainty
lunches are enjoyed by the members and
their friends, and where private recep
tion rooms are furnished to ladies who
wish to entertain their friends. The
club numbers nearly 100 members. —Ex-
Co-Education in St. Lawrence.
Co-education is carried out to the most
practical details in the St. Lawrence col
lege, one of the earliest of co-educational
institutions. During the recent cam
paign the Republican club included both
young women and men in its member
ship, and together they marched from
the college to the town hall through a
pouring rain to listen to speakers on the
issues of the campaign.—Exchange.
What Suffrage la.
We are often asked what suffrage is,
and what it will do for us. It is the
standard that leads the way, and the
want of it is the bar that stands in the
way of everything else. It is the demand
for suffrage that has helped to bring all
the gains we have already won, and
these in their turn will help to bring
suffrage.—Mrs. Ednah D. Cheney.
Suffragists Ar® Not Agitators.
The advocates of equal rights for
women are called agitators. But the
people who oppose progress oppose the
divine order, and it is they who make
the agitation, just as a stone motionless
in the bed of a brook makes more agita
tion in the water than all the boats that
move along with the stream.—Mrs. A.
Eucy Booth to Dive Dike an East Indian.
Lucy Booth, General Booth’s youngest
daughter, is about to go to India to be

women of that dark land. Like all the
women of the Salvation Army in India,
she will go among the native women ia
their own costume arid live in the same
manner that they do.—Woman’s Journal.

Ghost Story Party.
My dear, have you heard of the very
latest fad? Probably not, because it is
so new it has not reached Detroit yet.
Well, it’s a ghost party and its just
lovely. In order to give one successfully
you must have one of those big halls—a
hall, you know, that goes up two or
three stories and has a great old fash
ioned fireplace in it? First you invite
about eight or nine people and assemble
them in the hall. All the portieres are
drawn, the lights are put out and the fire
.allowed to burn low. Then each one is
obliged to tell a ghost story in his or her
most blood curdling manner. Sounds
awful, doesn’t it? Kind of makes your
flesh creep and horrid little shivers run
down your back, but it is really awfully
nice, because, you know, it is really
necessary to hold hands so you will not
be too frightened, and sometimes they
say that even that is not enough and
stronger measures have to be adopted.
Os course I don't know, because I have
never attended one, but in the east they
are called engagement parties, because
so many engagements have resulted
from them. You know how easy it is
to be —well, to be affectionate in the
dark, and when the fire flares up the
girls look so appealing and so pretty it
is no wonder the men lose their hearts.
When everybody has had his turn lights
are turned up and refreshments served
and then the guests go home. The
ghost story party is sure to be a success
with the Detroit girls.—Detroit Tribune.
The Queen in ttvnrr.alism.
The queen’s appearance in the pages
of The Strand Magazine as the editor of
an article written upon information sup
plied by her on the dolls of her child
hood is an interesting event in her long
reign. It will be followed un bv another
and even more directly personal contri
bution. Her majesty, it is well known,
has for some time been a student of
Hindoostanee. Her tutor is a native gen
tleman, who has another interesting
pupil in the head of the Mahammedan
faith. According to his testimony the
queen in her faculty for acquiring lan
guage far outstrips the sultan. Her
majesty, though coming late in life to
the study, takes a keen interest in it,
and delights in communicating with
her Indian servants in their native
Her contribution will consist of a
translation into Hindoostanee of two let
ters. One was written some time ago
by her majesty to the shah of Persia;
the other is a letter addressed to the
English people and was penned shortly
after the death of the Duke of Clarence.
The latter is certainly the most charm
ing of the many simple and unaffected
messages the queen has from time to
time penned.—London Letter.
Pretty and Picturesque.
It seems as if there were never so
many pretty girls as there are today.
Their youthful loveliness is a pleasure
to every one. Even the most cross
grained, soured mortal must feel a thrill
of exultation in life when one of these
fair girls, bubbling over with gay spirits
and animation, passes by. They have a
right to be clothed becomingly, as, in
deed, the city girl usually is. Bright
plaids are made into plain skirts and
worn with silk waists and girdles for
common dresses, the very simplicity of
which is a strong recommendation.
Sultana reds and Santa Maria blues are
colors particularly suitable for school
girls in fine faced fabrics which may be
used for nice dresses. I saw a cheviot
the other day in a new shade of navy
blue which was made up for a girl of
seventeen or so, with yoke, sleeves and
skirt band of broche silk with a dash of
red. Other blue dresses are neatly
trimmed with pinked cloth, combining
the two colors of red and blue.—Brook
One of Patti’s Maids.
Patti is hard to please in the arrange
ment of her hair and her maid has a
hard time of it in consequence. When
last in Philadelphia the diva’s attendant
burned her finger and it looked for a
time as if Adelina’s coiffure would be a
wreck. In the emergency a young
woman employed about the hotel volun
teered her services, which were accepted
by the queen of song after some hesita
tion. The result was so pleasing to
Patti that she made herself acquainted
with the girl’s name and history and of
fered her a place in her service. The
proposition was not accepted on account
of the young Philadelphia woman’s ill
ness. But her malady lately took such
a turn that the doctors ordered her to
travel, whereupon she wrote to Patti
stating the case and last week received
a cablegram embodying a favorable re
ply to her request for a place among the
servants of the songstress.—Philadelphia
She Saved a Eife.
Maggie Gallagher, a girl employed at
Frazard’s Woolen mill, near Conshohoc
ken, Pa., saved the life of the wife of her
employer. A fire broke out in the Fra
zard residence, and during the excite
ment it was forgotten that Mrs. Frazard,
an invalid, was confined within the
burning building. Finally Maggie rushed
in and carried her out in her arms. The
deed was recognized by Mr. Frazard,
who immediately made Miss Gallagher
forewoman of one of the departments.—

WOMEN WHO OWN DIAMONDS.
A Constant Source of Worry, They Are
Concealed in Strange Places.
Women who own diamonds have them
always on their minds and generally on
their bodies. They go about the streets
like traveling safety vaults. The shrewd
observer will frequently see a placid,
decorous looking woman suddenly press
her hand on some part of her body not
apparently claiming attention and a look
of anguish pass over her face. This is
not caused by a casual spasm of pain, a
momentary dereliction of some physical
function, but by the horrible thought
that her diamonds may have slipped
their moorings. Some women carry
their diamonds around their necks in
chamois bags, like scapulars; others ad
just them like porous plasters around
Mrs. Thomas Winans, of Detroit,
pinned SI,OOO worth of diamonds on to
her corsets and now is bewailing their
loss. Women seize the most unlikely
places to stow away their diamonds
when not in use, but do not seem to
lessen the chances of loss or anxiety.
Last winter a young woman pinned a
S6OO diamond to the bottom of a silk
skirt for safe keeping. A week later,
forgetting this, she put on the skirt and
merrily promenaded the town. When
she sought to wear her diamond it was
gone. After a week of anguish it was
recovered by the offer of SIOO reward.
She dropped it where it had been picked
up. Not two weeks after she sent it to
a strange washerwoman pinned inside a
corset cover. The mental agony which
accompanies such exploits tends to
whiten the locks.
A woman with solitaire earrings of
unusual value wore them concealed in
gold balls. In a sleeping car these were
removed and she was brought back
home in a piteous state of collapse.
Another woman, believing that her per
son is in danger from the possession of
such valuable diamonds when traveling,
pins them in the folds of the window
curtains and hides them under the cor
ners of rugs. The next morning she
has forgotten the precise spot and after
ransacking the room in a state of com
parative frenzy and perhaps losing a
train the missing jewels are found.
The same woman in Paris hid her dia
monds in a slit in a mattress. The dia
monds after a week or so had made a
considerable tour of the interior of the
mattress. Not being found the maid
who attended the room was charged
with theft and detectives were called in.
A pretty imbroglio was set in motion,
when the enterprising landlady had the
mattress opened, and the diamonds were
found. People who do not own dia
monds have this compensation and it
should not be lightly valued—they do
not have to take care of them. —New
