Women Who Work.
Philadelphia Record : There arc in the
United States 3,817,157 women who earn
thmr own living. Of this number
2,242,252 are laborers , ( mainly agricul
tural ) mill operatives , seamstresses ,
domestic servants and teachers all of
them , except the last , mutual and poorly
paid employments , and thu last is poorly
paid whoa thu teachers nrr * women.
With the above statistics Ida M. Van
Ettcn opens an article in the current
number of the North American . review.
Continuing , she points out that \vo thus
find a social condition which obliges
nearly 3,000,000 women to depend on
their own exertions for a livlihood , and
oners them a field of labor so circum
scribed as to afford employment for not
more than one-tenth of the number.
Enormous overcrowding , fierce competi
tion , and a consequent undue pressure of
wages necessarily follow.
SIKUE HUMAN MACHINES.
The number of mill operatives , which
is given at 152,103 , includes only those
engaged in the textile manufactures ; but
I ho number engaged in otlter manufac
tories would greatly swell tlieso figures.
For instance , about 20,000 women and
prirls are cigar-makers. More than 21,000
work in the boot and shoo factories ,
whore they Uo the meaner sort of work
binding , sewing on buttons , etc. , and are
very poorly paid. There is , morcovcrno
chance for advancement , as the work re
quires only a certain amount of manual
dexterity , which is readily acquired by a
child , and thus the wages of the woman
are kept at a level with those of a child.
Kxpuriencu and trustworthiness count for
naught. "Nothing , " says the writer , "is
more cll'ectual in producing .ibjeetncss
of character , and ( leadening the moral
and intellectual nature than-a
mean , ser
vile condition , which holdout no hope of
change or improyomon and in which the
compensation is insutlicicnl to afford the
means of a comfortable living. "
THE Ori'KKbSION OK THE WEAK .
Notwitnstandlng these apparent draw-
bucks , the fact remains that 45 per cent.
of the employes in many manufacturing
enterprises.aro women. That ihey are
in reality mere boasts of burden part
of the machinery does not tlotor thorn
from seeking such employment. Carroll
U. Wright , United States Commissioner
of Labor calls attention to the fact that
in all departments where men only are
employed the hours of labor are but tan ,
but where the women and children pre
ponderate the hours are eleven or more ,
and asks why it is that the weakest , the
most helpless and dependent , are loaded
with more hours , while the strongest and
those better .tvblo to bear it have fewer
hours to work ? This is a question that
has botheres many a head , and has boon
vainly asked over and over again. Ways
and moans looking to a betterment of tlio
condition of the workingwomen have
been discussed ; a few of
them have assumed tangible
shape and have been followed
by satisfactory results. These are mainlv
clubs , which look to the amelioration o"f
the social condition of mill operatives ,
seamstresses and shop-girls , and to bu
reaus of employment and information.
These nro excellent in their way , but
have no effect in relieving the over
crowded avenues of labor open to women
or in protecting them from the demands
for excessive hours so often imposed.
METHODS FOIl A CUIfE.
As a remedy for this system of op
pression the writer in the Review , to
whom wo have roferredsuggosts , that the
workingwomen organize trades unions
to determine the hours and wages on the
same plan that the trades unions for men
are now carried on. This might , it is
true , hotter their condition in n measure ,
but the system is beset with diliicnlties
that I fear would bo more wearing and
tearing to the average woman than the
toiling and scrimping that she now en
dures. The kind of organization that
would Uo away with child labor in the
factories would be more to the point. It
would make room for moro women and
would undoubtedly raise their wages to
the level of woman's work.
WHEKE ORGANIZATION MAr DO GOOD.
But sad us is the condition of female
operatives in the mills that of the women
who tight thu .wolf from thu door with
the point of a needle is infinitely worse.
For them there are no hoursno , Sundays ,
absolutely no time for recreation. 1 do
not refer to the skilled dressmakers , or
the accomplished seamstresses who fash
ion dainty wear for fashion's favorites ,
but to the sowing woman who rntikes a
heavy pair of workman's trousers for 7
cents , or a shirt for 0 or 8 cents. It is easy
to SRC that these poor creatures can
hardly find time to oat or sleep , much
less for recreation. It is only by unceas
ing labor , twolyo or fifteen hours a day ,
and seven days in the week , that they are
able to ward off starvation and keep the
life in their wretched bodies at all. And
the condition of tiio cloakmakers and
those who make women's underclothing
is not much better. Comparatively few
women nowadays have their underwear
made at homo. After buying the ma
terials scarcely " anything la left to
pay for the makiuu ; they find it
much cheaper and quite as satisfactory
to buy these garments ready-made , lint
it is clear that they are cheapened by the
heart's blood of the sowing women who
make them , and not by pecuniary-loss to
the merchant \ \ ho soils them. Those are
linrd facts , but they nru.apparent. Cloak-
makers are slightly better off , for their
work calls for experience , taste and skill ;
but they are wretchedly paid , for alltlmt.
For thFa class of workingwomen thorough
organization might t'o much.
A I1KTTEB IlEMKUY STILL ,
Hut there is another way out of the dif
fictiHy n way that requires no system of
organization or concerted action. Every
workingwoman hns tlio matter in her
own hands. There \3 \ a constant and
ever-increasing demand fur domestic
servants. The cry of their scarcity and
incompctcncy is heard on every hand. It
is folly to say that thh branch of employ *
mentis overcrowded , although nearly
1,000,000 women in the United States are
household'workors. We need moro nnd
wo need better servants. The newly
landed immigrant , who has probably
worked in liclds all her life , docs not fill
the bill. Wo want Intelligent women in
our hoities , wlio.if they do not know how
already , are cupabln of learning how to
perform housliold work acceptably , and
at no great outlay of time and ux-
POSITIONS OK I.UISUKE AND t'UOFIT.
The talk about domestic service cur
tailing the privileges of the worker is all
sheer nonsense. In all well regulated
households the maid has her weekly af
ternoon and evening out nnd her altern
ate Sunday. In almost every house these
regular outings are supplemented by
others , so that her life is far from being
the llfo of a prisoner , nnd infinitely more
free than that of the sowing women.who
must make the most of every available
moment or starve. Mistresses are gen
erally kind and considerate if maids be
cheerful and willing. Aloreover , house
hold work is healthful ; it nllbrds a diver
sity that is of itself a relaxation of mind
and body ; and , finally , it is better paid
than any otliur branch of labor open to
uneducated , workingwomen. Indeed ,
it is donbtfnl if many of the female teach
ers can sayo as much money as the do
mestic worker in the course of the year.
QUESTIONS OF Hnsi-ncTAiJtuTr COXSID-
The ground covering the false notions
of the loss of dignity and social position
by entering domestic service has boon
gone over times without number , and
the last word seems to have been said.
Any woman of innate refinement nnd
proper self-respect should not need to bo
assured that these qualities may bo main
tained under any and all conditions , but
if she have in audition her fair share of
common sense she will know that the
cleanly , well -ordered kitchen when ; she
reigns as domestic is moro favorable to
their perpetuation than the squalid tene
ments she is able to provide for herself
as seamstress. When the masses of mill
operatives , seamstresses , etc. , shall have
been educated up to an appreciation of
the advantages of domestic service their
condition will bo bettered. The problem
of women's wages will solve itself , and
the servant girl question will no longer
vox. And then there need bo no fear
that any field of employment will bo
overcrowded. There Is no overplus of
women or men ; there is work for every
pair of willing hands , and bread for
every hungry mouth. But the energy of
the hands should bo expended where it
is needed. A little judgment in this di
rection will help women moro than all
the labor organizations that can bo do-
vised. The remedy for each individual
the case rests with individual.
Women Whoso Only Interest in Ex
istence is Gossip.
However prominently gossip enters
into the life of the average boarding-
liouso clse\yhero , says a writer in the
Philadelphia Press , in this city it is the
characteristic that makes ovcrthing else
subordinate. The people live on it , cul
tivate it as an art , and make it the chief
occupation of their daily lives. The in
terest of any friendly intercourse that
exists consists chiefly in finding out
things about one another or about some
body else in the house.
There is hardly a boarding house in
Philadelphia where the private and do
mestic atfairs of every ono in it are not
as well known to cvurv one else in it as
to themselves. What a woman is mak
ing or doing , what she bought ycsteiday
or what she is going to buy to-day , who
she visits , who visits her , how much her
Imsbund makes , where he is if absent
from a meal , how much her last dress
cost her , or just what is tlio matter with
her if she remains in her roomare affairs
quite as well known to every woman in
tlio house as to herself. There is in
almost every boarding house ono or two
womenusually unmarried ami no longer
. make this their
ttsmess in lite. To cat and know what
is going on is all they care for. They
seldom gcront , have no interests or occu
pation , and gradually every feminine
trait becomes subordinated until
curiosity becomes a passion. Every
time the bolls rings they know it , as they
do the contents of every Infudle that ar
rives. ' 1 hey see the letters at the plates
before the owner see them themselves ,
and cleverly draw out of the recipients
who they are from if it takes six months
to do it. They invite and cultivate the
confidence of every newcomer solely to
minister to their absorbing passion.
Quite often the woman who keeps the
boarding house is alllictcd with this frenzy
herself , and the case is wall authenticated
of the keeper of a fashionable boarding
house in this city who opened and read ,
by steaming them , the letters of most of
the ladies in the house for six months be
fore she was discovered. There are a num
ber of boarding houses where every let
ter and every package received into the
house is taken to the mistress before
then reach their rooms. In all such
espionage as this of course servants have
a share , and , as a rule , not only lend
themselves easily to it , but in time be
came adopts themselves.
Traveling Perfumery Shops.
A decided innovation is to have , be
tween the dress waist and the lining ,
eaeliet powder : Sa fact , the whole waist-
of the dress servos as ono largo saoliot.
While this may make the dress a little
heavier , and consequently add to its
warmth , it is just what is needed for win
ter weather. Evening dresses are also
treated in this way. Violet seems to bo
the favorite odor.

Sierra Valley ( Cal. ) Joador : Miss Ellen
Cnllehan , of Sierra Valley , sold to James
Miller last week forty-six head of beef
cattle at 8 cunts n pound. This is the
highest price paid in this valley in two
years for beef cattle. Miss Callehau re-
cuiyed $2,312.75 for her cattle , and has a
band still growing. Some twelve or fif
teen years ago her brother died and left
her two good ranches and a band of cat'
tie and horses. Since then she has man
aged the ranches and stock herself as solo
proprietor. She is a noted character here
for her peculiar manner in attending to
her household affairs as well as caring
for her stock and gathering in her large
crop of hay , etc. , all of which she per
sonally superintends. She can har
ness a team , break wild horses ,
run a mower or do anythiny
of the work on a ranch. She shows great
charity for stock , as often she has been
known to take young calves , colts , cliick-
OIIH and ducks into the kitchen to save
them from the inclemency of the weather
for several weeks at a time , She would
make a good match in mariiago for a

others need apply. Dudes would not ,
