From London oorncs the assurance that

the innovation that ravishing smohlng-

Which by courtesy Is called a small vice , are

I heard u pbyMciau of a tcputatlon not

they smoked , not the baleful cigarette , but a

Primarily , the odor of tobacco about a
M Oman's gown or laces is vulgar , and , on

Lunch parties , a reception or two and tha
Young Men's Ctiiistian association con
vention kept many Indies away fiom Mrs.
Jciinebs-Mlllor'a lecture , Friday afternoon.
'The natnuot was quite well llllcd , however ,
when a lady canto out on the stage , moved a
red velvet chair several inches , tried ono of
the doors painted on Iho put lor scene , which
was Bet upon the stuse , ana finally intro
duced Mrs. Jonncss-Millcr.
Of course thu lecture was upon the subject
of ilic H u toplo that never fails to Interest
women but the audioimo paid moio atten
tion to the lectuier's ' plush gown
than It did to her sensible
word * . The gown was really u verv
satisfactory creation of the modiste's art and
it was ho picturesque that every woman
btrnightxvny decided to 1m vu at least oao cos-
tlinio exnctly likeIt. .
Mrs. .Icnncss-Miller began her lecture by
Rpcuklng of stout women , und she was not at
all complimentary to her sisters overbur
dened u tthtoo , too solid flesh. " Then she
turned her attention to the lean women with
prominent collar bone. The lecturer's gown
wa cut BO that it displayed u white throat
and therefore she was very severe In dealing
with tier less fortunuto sisters.
The dross reform pnradu was the most In
teresting part of tha lecture , Street suits , n
tea gown und a ball drebs were tried ou In
rapid succession. They woio all pretty
anil they weru likewisenow. . When
the question ol undergarments was
Jlnnlly touched the spectators wore
destined to disappointment. Mrs. Jcnucss <
Miller Bald that the stagewu too cold to
poimithor to show tlie union underwear
und divided skirts in nctivu uso. Uosidcs 11
wild -eyed young man , attached to thu opera
holme , insisted upon appearing at tha door
every ten minutes. Therefore the leader of
tha dies * reform movement merely ex
hibited oomu pongee garments that had no
particular form or shupoliness.
When the luatuio was concluded even1
ono had u rod nose , but there uns u dnm't
boll drill , given by Miss Anderson' * physica
culture clusn , which wus so lively that 1
jnnJo the spectators warm to look at it.

nut card party at ' 'Loravllhi , " their spacious
home , on Monday evening in honor of some
visiting friends. High five , which promises
to bo the accepted pnrno of the winter , was

The autumn house cleaning brings with all
it bothersome caio und many a touch of
humor that makes the whole world grin. A
yonug married woman the other day , be
ginning the annual scrubbing time accord
ing to lulc , found that "tho cellar should bo
the lit st consideration , and to insure good
health the walls should no whitewashed. "
Itcasonlng by the law ot incongruity , that
nil negroes are caually skillful in putting
this chat liable coat over a multitude ofdls-
ciopanclcs , she called in nn old retainer mid
bade him begin. Later she was drawn to
the cellar by the most dismal and appalling
moans and groans , lltirr.vine to the door
and throwintr U open she stood transfixed bv
the sight that met her eyes , only to shriek
with laughter when the whole meaning
dawned upon hfcr mind.
A metamorphosis from a full-bloodca
nogto to something surpassing the staring
whiteness of Hutnuty IJumptv stood on a
shaky scaffolding in themlddlp of the room
xrlth Ills calcimine , oh , horror of horrors , in
her spick , span new coal bucket. The sunny
whistling creature of an hour before had
mcnnwhilo ceased gro.inlng , und with nn ef
fort marked by various cracks and crevices
In his pasty features , ho managed to uj icu-
late :
"Missis , I want 'jou to understan' , dls
hero is do las' whitowushlu' dls niccah ' 1
over do I1' '
And ho proceeded to dip his brush in the
thin mixturn , turning his face upward with
closed oycs , and slapping the stuff on , with
thu result , that two-thirds poured back upon
him , drying directlv , und leaving him litor-
crally with a cwst of countenance , nnd the
ceiling broken out in spots.
It is unnecessary to say ho was dissuaded
from continuing , and went homo much ci cat-
fallen over his unsuccessful attempt.

comes of itself.
The table , rectangular In shape , covered
with linen that is the envy of every young
housewife in tonn , und , indeed , many of the
older ones , was simply n background for
flowers , a cut glass bowl of La Franco , and

feumand roses scattered in graceful con-
