Ilnrpor's Ba/nar : There seems to bo
in the minds of most young people
launching forth into society to-day nn
idea that a curtain manner is necessary
if oiio would bo "good form. " Just us
the girl of the ] ) oriod haw learned to hold
her shoulders squarely and straight , to
dress in tnilor-mado gowns and cultivate
a fondues' ) for out-of-door sports , BO Bho
bcoms to think that her dignity is im
periled by being frank and gracious ,
and above all kindly , in manner. She
expresses her opinions freely enough in
her own "wit. " She can laugh and
talk and smile and bow where eho fools
Mire of her audience ; but would HIO
voluntarily turn to some less prosperous -
porous sister to make her feel wel
come and hnppy and at her case in
iv company of comparative strangers ?
Would she think it worth her while , or
indeed even "proper , " to answer the
petition of a little street Arab with a
kindly word in a gentle tone ? Would
she thank the servant who rendered
Iror some passing Borvico ? Would she
give a word of sympathy here , a word
of good cheer there ? Would she as
hostess make her table or her drawing-
room bright and hnppy for all her
guests , dilTusing the charm of kindness ,
which is the root of all graciousncss ,
and make ot her slightest hospitality
something for which her family anil
friends wore happier and hotter ? And
yet all of thcso things suggests the true
part of n lady the lady as opposed to
the lower-bred woman , the woman with
out kindness , graeiousnoss , or tact.
The true wozn&n's part in life is to
make these around her happier and
bettor , and how is it to bo done if there
lingers tiny prejudice against natural
kindliness and sympathy with one's fel-
low-boings ? _
A Mnitlon AHmirniicn Society.
Washington Critic : The Maiden As-
mirnnco society of Denmark aims to pro-
vitlo for ladies of well-to-do families ;
Kholters and cares for them , and fur
nishes necessary "pin money. " The
noblemen for the association is pccu-

paid in swells the endowment of the
association. Her father may have paid
for twenty years , when , by marriage ,
she forfeits all right of insurance. This
advantage enables the company to
charge lower premiums and makes the
burden less to the father insuring. Ho

Women or the Frontier.
Mrs. O. O. Howard in Daughters of
America : The wife of a recent governor
of a far western state use to take her
blankets and go cautiously out , after
nightfall , to some sheltered nook , there
to sleep with the stars for company. Her
husband was obliged to make long trips
to some distant mining camp. She has
recently presided in her husband's homo
at the state capital while ho filled the
highest olllce in the state. And that
capital has sprung from a few dugouts to
76,000 inhabitants since her days and
nights of danger on the river blulf , and
her children , yet in their teens , have
been enjoying the educational advanta
ges of a state university. Another bravo
woman , afterward the wife of a county
judge , was seized by an Indian lover ,
who intended to place her upon his pony
and carry her away with him. She gave
him a quick blow with the rolling-pin
that she was using , then pushed him with
all her might Out of the door andagajnst
his pony. Then she snatched her rille ,
took the cap-box from her pocket , where
she always carried it , and , fitting a cap
to her gun , aimed nt the Indian's heart.
In the meantime ho had mounted his
pony , and now foil upon his face on the
pony's neck. The cap snapped , fortu
nately , but she pursued him , determined
to kill him. She was a good markswoman -
woman , frequently killing antelopes
and other game. The Indian , seeing
her determined air , lied. Her husband
said that if she had killed him there
would have been no escape for them
from the fury of the savages , who wcro
camping near in largo numbers , his only
conveyance being a blow ox-team.
Small Women in Style.
Now York Letter : A recent work on
physical beauty asserts that the ten
dency in women of the present day is
toward smallncss of stature. Bigwomon ,
in fact , are going out of fashion. This
being the cnso , by all means lot us have
materials that present designs suitably
adapted to the human figure as it actu
ally exists , nnd not ns it may appear in
the imagination of manufacturers.
Plaids of any description make a. woman
look shorter than she actually is , in the
same manner that stripes , when they
arc narrow and elongated , produce nn
appearance of slondcrncss. A skirt
made in imitation of a colossal chess
board of variegated hues cannot bo
either pretty or graceful. A very tall
woman , or ono slightly above medium
height , can wear a plaid of moderately
large checks , but if she bo short and
dumpy , or even tall and fat , lot her
eschew such patterns as the abomination
of desolation. Nevertheless , BOOH our
streets will bo filled with poi-ambulating
checker boards and btrlped awnings ;
for , of course , fashions are invented to
bo worn , and , consequently , women will
adopt them whether they are suitable
or not.

Professional Women.
Chicago Mail : A con ucr. - sense
woman , who p"9 M. D. after her name ,
told mo tins the other night : "I have
but ono objection to being a professional
woman that is the peculiar" estimation
in which my own sex holds mo. I know
they don't mean it , but I fool it some
times until 1 have to turn my face to
conceal the flush on my checks. Do
you know that the average society
woman acts ( is though she thinks that
ono of her own BOX who has a profession
has no social rights ? This average so
ciety woman would not admit this , of
course. And perhaps she doesn't really
mean it. I would sometimes like
to put on a dress from the dressmaker's
latest pattern. But if I do my patient
looks at mo in a sort of inquiring way.
I think sometimes if 1 should follow the
style of Mrs. Dr. Mary Walker that
some of my otherwise good patients
would like it bettor. Why is it ? I am
not railing against my own sox. Believe -
liovo mo , I would not bo a man if I had
the power to make the change. But
women are so cruel without intending
to bo. A friend of mine asked mo to
attend the reception last Wednesday
night at the Columbia thcatro , and I
wont. While I was there I was con
stantly reminded by his other lady
friend of my profession. I was constantly
appealed to ns to my opinion of the
effect of an exposure which her own
folly had created , and when wo wont
out of the theater I had to go homo
with her and leave a porscription.

I < 'einalo Violinists in lloston.
A correspondent from Boston writes :
Female violinists are to bo the rage this
winter.t The coming of several fairgirls
who can'mako the catgut sing with skill
and power lias stirred the ambitions of
our local amatouresand the dear things
are seen daily going to and from the
rooms of their teachers with fiddle-
boxes in their hands. The banjo , that
hnd a furious fit of popularity a year or
t\yo ago , has gone out of favor with the
girls almost entirely , but the violin is
on the steady gain. Fine violinists
among the dear creatures are rare , of
course. Violin playing is hard work
and it taxcs a girl's strength greatly.
The mvif.C'le-1 of a man are needed , as
well as a tuun's endurance. When you
find a Birrs who has the physical
stamina 'ro'nuirod for vigorous play
ing she " isipt to lack the del'i-
cncy amft lie finemcnt that go with
artistic exiyhiUon ' upon the king of in
struments , 'There are plenty of girls
who are fitsoiiiating to the very last de
gree with a violin in their hands , but
the eombinlvtSon of grace , physical
power , nnd oulful performance is very
rare , say Jrhos'o ' who have observed.
TerodinU Tiia , the Italian damsel who
will spon bo hero with her violin , is
paid to bojjtjautiful enough to secure an
instant and l/usting triumph on the con
cert stagt'ltinl \ yet I inn told that she is
not the cqutfl'iiH ' an artiste of several of
the AmeVic'a'u girls. Ono of the leaders
among the latter is Miss Belle Botsford ,
a Boston , | girl who has had live year's
training in Paris , and who was licard
.slightly in concerts about hero last sea-
son. Hes health failed and her parents
took her last winter to Wyoming , where
the climate restored her to health , and
-she will soon make her appearance in
the Beaten symphony concerts.
Prominent Colored AVotncti.
Mr. T. Thomas Fortune is ono of the
ablest and best known colored jr n in
the co'.istry.
' Toll me something , " Mr. Fortune '
was asked a few davs since , "about the
women of your race who have done the
most for 't ' and for themselves. " |
"Colored women have hardly had opportunity - '
portunity to do much that is sensa
tional , " ho replied. "Thoy haven't hnd
time. But still there are several who
are prominent among their own people '
nnd who have earned a solid reputation.
Take Washington , for instance , colored
women of the best class there don't take
much to marrying. They get along
better than the men and usually devote
themselves earnestly to their work
nnd succeed well in it. The most
prominent colored women in Washing
ton , in the best sense of the word , are
the teachers such women as Miss M. B.
Briggs , professor in English in Howard
university , s most talented lady , or
Josephine J. Turpin , of the same school ,
who is a frequent contributor to papers ,
or Lucy Moulton , who is the ollloSont
principal of a big training school , or
Mary K'alle or Marion Shadd all highly
cultured women , respected and es
teemed by these who know thorn.
I "In Philadelphia there is the skillful
woman physician , Dr. Cnrolino V. An
derson. She is the daughter of Will'
j iam Still , a wealthy colored merchant
and one of the directors of the under
