What /Women Can Do. ' . ;
Woman : . -tweaity ' . .j-cnrs ago , 'two'
maiden ladles , daughters of ati English
clergyman , wore loft , orphans and poor.
One was forty , the other a little older.
They were ladies , with the training-
ladies of their- time which after all ,
was not BO unlike ours. They , could
gay on the piano and 'paint 'otr plush ; .
it they wore' coo old and too -old-fash
ioned. toteach. . They could , 'perhaps , '
have found shelter in a homo for . de
cayed gentlewomen , or been a burden
oir their 'friends. ' 'But they-.dfd some-1
thing better. With the Very. little-
money they had they- left their village i
horns and settled themselves on the out
skirts of London. It was but u ( ew hun
dred dollars , but it .sufficed ' tor.their
project -and their support- ' till 'that'
project , was ' . asuccess. . . ' 'They-
sot up a laundry.They hod-wom6h' ' fOY |

and the fine Ironing wont through t % oir i
own' delicate lmnds.through" the1 lirfttj
years. . T.huy kept the accounts , -col-l
looted the bills in brief , furnished th'ot
brains needed fora business enterprise. )
At the end of ton years they had a neati
home , a large business 'and ' 'a certainty i
of provision for old ago. ' k.
' , Another. woman , alter'yeari 'of tench- '
ing , found herself utterly brokenlVdowii

New' Orleans Picayunti : A "tailor- '
.made'- ' woman is by.no meane ' the arli-
'ficlnl creature the .term , would imply. .
Far 'fromit. . There is .perhaps' less'
room in the premises for * artificial con
ditions th'an in oilier m6thods of cos
tuming the softer sex. The .expression ;
is used to classify a masculine ' style of
fomnlo dross whloh.has within , -year or
twy past grown intp a certain vogue-1
The tailor-made gown is simply cut , und ,
fitted in much the same Btyle as that of
the upper and putor garment- miiicu-
line wear. . ' .It is. ordinarily made oft
much the same sort of pialo'rial'ns is
used for men's coats , and is extremely'
plain and devoid 'of ornament , either in
the way of external .nttachm'entsi or
color. Tho' tailor-made garment for
women is the outgrowth of an attempt
to imitate the masculine . costume in
ness , without , however , oven the re
motest suggestion of anything unrn-
flnod or unwomanly , and it comes up
for remark only in respect to mere
questions of taste.
The bounty of a woman is like that of
a flower , of a nature so delicate and de
pending on conditions varied that it
is deprived of much of its charm to en
velope it severely in dull , neutral tints
unrelieved by colors or draping. The
beauty of almost any flower is enhanced
by combination with others in a bou
quet. Indeed , a single blossom1 on a
long stem devoid of follngo is ungainly
and ungraceful to a dcgrco which not
oven the rose or the camellia , most por-t
foot of flowers , can .onduro without ntvv- '
ing its beauty marred. In the same way ,
women , however beautiful , lese 'an in
finite charm when they wrap thomtlolvcs
severely in tight flitting garbs of dull
colors. So dressed they are not < sven
statuesque , because a statute nust bo
white or ot an extremely fair hue to sc-
cure all the best effects of light and
shudo , which are wholly lost in dark
colors. Even bronze is wholly .unsuited
for proper effects in statuat'y unless.c-
posed under the open sky to the full bliifeo
of tho' sunlight. As long us 'female '
beauty is a source of Such btfprorac delight -
light to the other sex women owe It aVa
duly to preserve and present , their
charms in the hlghobt state of perfec
tion , and no fashion which mars or
masks them should bo countenanced , < >
It seems to be an English fad to > fflVo
women in drcsa and inamrors a sort t
roughness and masculinity. No Woman
can bocotne nn athlete without altering
her form , and it cannot bo beautiful to
develop upon the rounded rcllovoand
delicate- corners of htr limbs the knots
and cords of muscle which belong to
men. "Hercules In petticoats" is a
most revolting suggestion ; ' There is
another circumstance , hawovor.'ih the
effort to masculinize women * 'This ' is ,
that when the fair sox 'invades the do-
fnaln'of manners and morals' which it
supposed to belong to the strontttor iVls
because the men nro degenerating Into
effeminacy. There is no effect without
a cause , and the degeneracy of tnnnnorg
in the result of a serious decay In morals.
It is not likely that Under our free In
stitutions society can ever reach th'o
condition of moral decomposition so

Where Some GlrU Make Mistake * . '
English MagazlnoJ' There are some
girls who. Instead of making themselves
useful.and resting colmy In their maiden
dignity , think only Of getting . 'married
and use questionable means to. achieve
.heir . purpose- Forgetting the proverb :
'Tho moro-hasto the -less speed , " .this
tort of girl not infrequently assumes a
'fast'1 style of talk , .manner nnd dress ,
n order to-make'herself attractive to
the opposite BOX. In doing eo she makes
a great mistake. Fish may nibble" at
iorbalt ; but they will not allow .them
selves to bo caught : A .loud girl may
attract attention and have half an hour
of'popularity , 'but she .is 'a- typo of the
short sightedness of .some of her sex. '
Men of ilyj baser , sort may' amuse thorn-
solves with her , but no man worth hav-
ng would think of marrying her. . There'
s-a liberty that makes us fruo"and ° a
iborty that makes us slaves , and the
jirls who take liberty' with modesty of
pecch and manner , and' who cross over
, ho boundary in to. masculine _ territory ,
are not inoro frco 'but morb enslaved

men which is the end.in view , is lost by
the means taken to gain it. Whatever

These trips , as n general thing , begin
at night , and that evening I go through
the train-which-is always vcstlbulo
string of cars , and introduce. myself to
the Indies. . I tell them where they can
find what is wanted ; and explain that I
nm there to give them nll'tho- informa

the trip before hand , and I inform my
self of everything that will bo of inter

will bo good places for them to stop at ;
where they will see the prettiest views ,

who have no escorts.

members of their families to go with
