An enthusiastic woman champion Insists
X * that the youtiR women of our day uro much
rt superior to those of our Rrnndmothcrs' rtny ,
nnd to illustrate one phase of her meaning she
relates an Incident that occurred at a popular
casldo resort last summer. A party had
\yandercd out on a rocky headland that
pushed into tlio sea. It was m do up of Irreg
ular masses of rock , separated by gaping
chasms , into which the incoming tloo swirled
.angrily , Ono young woman , who was just
thonvcrngo American girl , bright , pretty nnd
pleasing. Blood on the edge of ono of these
chasms nnd announced her Intention of jutnn-
las * across. It measured four or llvo fcot In
Width , and ten feet below the tide wns boiling
vor submerged rocks. One of the men who
| md begun to nssume protectorate airs over
her , expostulated. She merely laughed ,
dared him to follow her : there was n plimnsc
of white sltlrts nnd a pair of trim ankles , and
then fiom the other side of the chasm she
faced about smilingly and repeated her chal
lenge. "Would the young woman of other
lays , who were clustering ringlets , who
twisted their necks and stooped at the waist ,
linvo done such things } They couldn't If
they had wanted to.
Is there a field in Omaha for a woman's
flub ) For some time past the question has
been discussed In the literary circles of the
I city and while there is n , great dlverganco of
i opinion the majority of the ladles who huvo
* --uid the matter broached to them have
thought the field sufllciontly Itirgofor such an
I Some evenings slnco Mrs. W. H. Hanchctt
Who Is directing the work of four classes In
.tho city , brought the matter to a focus by
proposing to her class in English literature
that If the members would pay $1 per month
toxvard the renting of n room centrally lo-
fated , nnd would , in addition , present to the
club ono boolc a month , insldo of n year the
organization would have a verv creditable 11-
Imirynnd nt the same time h place v hlch
Would bo distinctly their own. The proposl
tlon was received very fuvnrobly , but as yet
no definite action has been taken toward the
formation of such a club. Several of the
ladles in Mrs. Hanchott's Wednesday class
which Is engaged in the study of English
history nro enthusiastic upon the subject and
will lend their asslstanco in a substantial
ID an nor.
While It is simply a matter for pleasant
discussion , there is u growing tendency on
the part of many philanthropic women to organize -
ganizo n club which shall contemplate all the
(1 ( vantages enjoyed by the sterner sex.
lt would bo very pleasant for ladles on
pnliiK expeditions , who could not get back
to tnotr homos for luncheon , to drop Into
their club with the certainty of meeting congenial -
genial people , who for a brief time would
forget the delights and charms of dress for
"Sj the additional delight of a pleasant discus-
\ y ion on Slinhosncnro , Browning , Swinburne
or the latest fads of the hour , which literary
people so thoroughly enjoy. Theosophy ,
Christian Science , and may bo Dr. Koch's
great discovery might find herein warm ad
vocates or enthusiastic antagonists. It could
bo made an educator , u power for good lu
the community. But the question naturally
suggests Itself , Is there u Held for a woman's '

So ninny card parties have been given this
jBcason that it would bo impossible to decide
Which one dcservos the palm for the greatest
success. But In the matter of delightful
pavtlcM , that given by Mr. and Mrs. Charles
A. Dean , 309 Jones street , Tuesday evening ,
leads by reason of its unronvcnttonallty and
tlio genuine hospitality shown by the host
net hostess.
