tended lately a
where, ua Boon
as the material
called upon to
listen to twen
ty-live papers, read by as many authors,
upon the question -'How does woman
best fulfill her mission?" Speaking
about the entertainment tho next day,
says a writer in the Atlantic Monthly,
I ventured to demur a little, saying that
at homo one read for improvement, but
one went out for amusement, when a
very pretty and elegant matron told me
that she made it a point no longer to
go into society when tho entertainment
consisted only of trivial conversation.
"A party in the parlor, all silent and
all" listening' to somebody on a plat
form who roads, recites, addresses and
lectures, seems to bo tho modern idea
of sociul oiliftcation. Mr. AuguBtlnfe
Birrell lias remarked that in America
we seem still to love talk for its own
sake, and rca.ly enjoy sitting and being
declaimed at in a loud voice, delighting
in the rolling sentence, and the lofty and
familiar sentiment. And it is certainly
the fact that let any one, nowadays,
stand up and road a paper or recito a
memorized spooch, no matter on what
subject, everybody listens; every heart
seems refreid by the ovorlUw, overy
intellectual teed stilled. Indeed, no
little wit, Bki')i grace, and clover powors
of aduptatjfjij" aro pressed into sorvico
for tJrawiDr)'Oin entertainments; and
BolouRJOy go for what they arp
wprUi.ttm grateful enough, only I am
tired of the dismal necessity of being in
structed at every turn.
A friend, herself a successful writer,
happened to be waiting on the veranda
of a country inn.whon two of tho inmates
one a middle aged farmer s wife, and
the other an elaborately dressed city
girl- came out and survoyed tho
stranger. After u time tho younger be
'Horn! Fond of reading?"
"Not always," roplled my friend, whom
I will call Mrs. X.
"I am," replied tho young lady, with
an air of superior enlightenment. "And
I think it 1b very improving." Having
administered this crushing rebuke, sho
watted a moment; then inquired, "Any
"Oh, I think not," murmured Mrs. X.
"I have a great muny favorite au
thors." said tho oung lady, with such
severity that MrB. X. felt constrained to
ask, "Who aro your fuvoi ito authors?"
"The Duchess, MrB. Forrester, Rosa
Nouchetto Caroy, E. P. Roo and Dick
ens." Thon, watching for some sign of
recognition on tho part of her audience,
she asked, "Ever heard of any of them."
"Not of tho first three, I think."
"Do you know E. P. Roo and Dick
ons?" "A little."
"E. P. Roo is very popular with Sun
day SchoolB," tho young lady now ox
plained, "and Dickens. you can under
stand him, is full of humor."
She had hit, albeit an octavo below
the actual nitch. what seems to me the
true contemporary koynote, the sort qf
tone which makes it embarrassing for a
modest person, who has read all his life,
and thinks no more of having done so
than of having nourished his body with
food and warmed it with clothes, to as
sert himself in tho fabo of an intention
superior to anything like mere interest
and amusement, of such definite aim for
PleaMttit Dunning 1'art)-.

Sorosis met on the afternoon of Jan.
22nd at the home of Mrs.Holyoke. The
subject for discussion was "Criminology"
led by Mrs. T. H. Hodgoman. Tho
science is ono of comparative rocent or
igin although reference is made to tho
characteristics of criminals in tho writ
ings of Homer, and later Aristotle and
Plato. During tho middle ages crimin
als wero 'supposed to bo those with ill
shaped bodies and in cuso of a doubt
such unfortunates wero always mado
victims of punishments ruthor than
those perfectly formed. Tho word
"Criminology" is ono of recont-olnago.
Tho division of criminologists ihom
solves into two classes is, a most natur
al one those who believe, heredity to bo
responsible for many of the' startling
crimes of tho times. Much remains to
bo tried and results will bo slow, yet
the nations of tho world aro laboring
with tho great question of how can the
criminal classes be helped and tho fu
ture will reap the benefit. Moral insan
ity is a dangerous type and whether re
formatories, colonies, or other means aro
most effective is a problem for careful
thought. The next meeting of Sorosis
will bo Feb. 5 at tho homo of Mrs. T. H.
Hodgeman. Miss Fling will discuss
Knglanil Cletn Anolliar.
Tho recently announced engagement
of Miss Virginia Bonyngo, of California,
and Viscount Deerhurst is another In
stance of an Englishman marrying an
American girl. Thoso marriages ilo not
create as much excitement as when they
wero moro unusual, for it seems to bo
well understood now that all tho eligihlo
Englishmen will, eventually, marry
American girls. Tho lot of American
women in London is far easier than it
used to bo, because, it tho tales told us
aro true, thoso who married in the last
generation found their life in London
Tho annual public meeting of tho La
dles Missionary society occurred last
Friday ovouing at tho homo of Rev. C.
E. Bradt in East Lincoln. Tho follow
ing interesting program was carried out:

Tuesday Dr. and Mrs. Giffen enter
tained, very pleasantly a number of
friends at high five in honor of Miss
Doll of Layfayette, Ind. Tho oxtremo

tho cause of crime nnd others who lay
its responsibility to environmcut. ThVro
have been two congi esses of wiminolo
gists. Tho first fo 1885 to fchjtfi Italy,
France, Germany and, Htile,'w sent rep
resolutives, and tho second in 1889 in
which neurly all of the civilized coun
tries with the exception of England,
wero interested. Italy is tho homo of
the scionco and its progress has been
marked; Franco is second in its
interests, experiments, and work for the
criminal class. Russia and South
America also aro greatly interested and
have accomplished much toward reform
atory measures. Tho special work of
tho criminologists is to study thorough
ly the criminal classes with tho idea of
findiiiK out how und what may bo the
best way of reaching them und convert
thorn into good citizens. The chief
characteristics of the criminal aro u defi
cient montul und moral und un abnorm
al physical growth. Not in all particu
lars but It is found in examining largo
numbers of heads that certain develop
ments of skull uttondod by other pecu
liarities of physique are always found
umong thoso convicted of the samo
crime. It is found too that heredity, en
vironment, cllnittto und other causes are
socloty anything but that bod of roses Hall, Mr. and Mrs. Thompson, Mr. and
which is popularly supposed to bo the
portion of any woman who is married to
a nobleman. Still, it seems a pity that
American women cannot bo contented
with tho good matches which aro to bo
mudo in their own country, und tho list
each year grows longer of tho bachelors
in socloty who, apparently, havo no
thought whutover of settling down.
