Miss Klla Kuowlos , the pouiUixr young
li\dy lawyer who tinrrowlyoscapoil bolnj ;
elected attorney gonornl of Montana , nt
Iholnlo olcollon , has received bushels
of loiters from ll parts of Iho country
nml on every Imaginable subject. It
waitxtllMt thought thnt Miss Ivtiowloa
was elected , mid the statoniont that she
win elected found apioo in almost nil
ousturn papora. Ever siuoo then Miss
Kuowlos has boon forc-id to consutno
many hours onch day in perusing her
voluminous correspondence. botno of
'tho letters are merely letters of con-
prnlulalton from hlh-inliidod { women
in vivrloua parts of the country and tnou
. in favor of women's BUlTr.itro. But a
largo portion of the loiters nro
from mon who want to marry
her. It IB safe to say that no woman
wns ever honored by so many of-
lors of muri'lairo ns Miss Knowlos has
received In the past live \vuelt9. Most
of the mon nro willing to mnrry lior tin-
night nnd un&ocn. Hut n Dubucjuo man ,
in n very complimentary letter , which
only hints at matrimony , propoaos that
they exchange photographs.
A dried up professor in an eastern
college , who puts ljh. 1) . after hla
iittmo , wants to marry Mis * Knowlos ,
nnd will show up in Helena for that
purpose ns soon as the fall term of college -
logo is over , provided a favorable an-
fiwor Is received. Ho thinlcs it would
ho nice to bo married on Christmas
ove. and he hopes Miss Knowlcs will
uao her Inlluonco to secure him a posi
tion in the Helena schools , so that ho
can do his share towards the expenses of
housekeeping. .

In the long and brilliant line of Amer
ican liturary women there will always
stand out very prominently two women
of the name of Eli/.aboth Stuart
Pholps. The llrst waa born in Andover
nearly seventy years ago , and died at
the ago of ! J7. Ho ; dmightor , upon
whom the mantloof her mother's genius
foil , wns also born in Andovor. She had
her liist story published when she
was 13 years old , and since
flho was 11) ) she has supported hor-
aolf by her pen. She was 110 when
"Gates Ajar" gave her fame , and she is
now only -10 , though because of the long
time she has boon before the public sbo
iscoramorily supposed to bo older. Her
face remains young and full of color.
'Mrs. Pholpa-Wnril writes very slowly
and with painstaking care. All of her
literary work is clone between 9 a. m.
unil 1 p. m. , aniTsho r.iroly in ono day
writes enough to lill half a column of a
daily newspaper. Sometimes the
amount produced is hardly half 'of that ,
nnd it is all carefully rovloed and ro-
writlon until it is entirely satisfactory.

There has boon a decided change In
the styles of evening footwear this sea
son. The black silk stockings and suede
Bllppors which have boon so much worn
for some seasons past are partly super
seded by stockings and slippers which
, match the gown. The slippers may be
made of satin or suede kid , but the now-
cst slippers are of glae.o kid. They arc
shown in ivory white , pale rose tints ,
lluo , violet and all the shades of even
ing dress. They are sharply pointed in
Piccadilly fashion at the too , and raised
on a Lout's Quin/.o heel about an inch
and a half. The only ornament is a tinj

phoo dealer , of brilliant rhlnestono 01

leather Oxford tlo , with a pointed too

Prom the lower edges of the gathered

One of the nfnny great schooners ply
ing between San Francisco nnd the
ports on the opposite side of the bnv is
owned nnd managed by a woman. Some
years ago Mrs. Sims' father became an
invalid and was obliged to put his ship
ping business In the hands of an agent.
Through the dishonesty and careless
ness of agents the business had ceased to
bo prolltablo , whoa Mrs. Sims deter
mined to go on deck hursolf ,
nnd since then has person
ally superintended the stevedores
and Iruckmon , bossed the gang of
sailo.-s , given orders to the captain and
mnnageu the entire business to keeping
tally of the raw hides lhat not infro-
que'ntly form part of the cargo , negoti
ating for the ttlgboats and superintend
ing repairs at dry dock. Syracuse , N.
Y. , has another successful business
woman , in rather a different line. Several -
oral yeard ago this woman's husband
failed in business , and on account of
poor health was unable to support his
family. Assuming the burden of the
family she began in a small way to knit
goods for the wholesale trade , and is
today , through good management , a
prosperous manufacturer , employing
1,000 women at work which ir.ay in most
cases bo done at homo.
A woman who is an active worker in
a Brooklyn church has been regularly
appointed assistant to the p.istor. Docs
not this suggest , says the Now York
Tribune , a new field for woman's activ
ity ? There are a number of women
ministers in the country in the west
especially thoyhavo been successful and
popular but a woman as an assistant
pastor appears to bo a novelty. In the
Hrooklyp church , as wo understand it ,
she is not expected to preach , but to as-
sibl in the distinctively pastoral woric of
the church. For the right sort of
woman largo opportunities of usefulness
would thus be opened. The majority of
church members , however , are women ,
and is it. not juat possible that some of
them might not take Kindly to the idea
of an assistant pastor of tlioir own sex ?

The roconl death of Miss Mary Allen
West in Tokio , Japan , provokes the
Portland OVoironian to remark that it
was the nocdless sacrifice ot a bravo
and noble life to so-called temperance
work. While the event is greatly regretted -
grotted , it will not bo without profit
if it reaches young women of a self-
sacrificing spirit that it is not neces
sary to go to a foreign land and grap
ple with an enervating climate , foul
odors and fetid atmosphere in order to
lind a field in which to work. The
very Idea of American women going to
China or Japan to engage in temper
ance work is absurd. There is plenty
to do at homo for all who think tha't
pr.iyor is an antidote for drunkenness
and' feel called upon to work in that
lino. The pity of Miss West's death is
the folly that induced it.

I be an to sermonize because of having
seen a Christm is box which came from Paris
last evcninjr. In the ordinary course of
American events the mother stays at home
nnd the daughter KOUS abroad : but in the ex
ceptional household of. which I am writing
the mother is ilmit-ina In the { jay French
capital and the daughter jvho keeps house
for "father and the boys" in New York pot a
package with a pale blno > latfota silk in it
last evening. Said blno t\flfeta : came straight
from one of the ateliers in Which the command
istfiven , "wear this , " andlbo world wears it ,
"throw it aside , " and it is thrown. Said blue
taffeta merits , therefore , quite careful con
It had n low round waist , which was gath
ered under a lace bertha and worn with
broad silk girdle. It was draped with a
dainty cream colored not. and here is the
point of interest it had a steel lioop run in
at the skirt hem to produce what the dress
makers call. I believe , a ' 'flare. "
Thntllaro'1 is the danger signal. Almost
every new design calls for it. When the
call is a little louder the stool hoop will be a
matter of course an everyday necessity.
The "sugar loaf" is ono of the now skirts
which Hare.
I can tell you somoUiincc else that came in
the box from Paris , if , vbn are interested. .
It was a street dress with a round overslcirt ,
just such as you wore a dozen to fourteen
years ago. A reddish brown serge was the
material , very heavy and with a black thread
running through it diagonally . The skirt
had a broad sable band lying on the floor at
the bottom , nnd the overskirt was plaited
under ( ho basque bodice and out perfectly
straight and round , with fur enough to
weight it and carry out its assumption of
dignity. The bodice was out square at the
waist and turned back from a wliito muslin
plastron in great triangular , fur-edged ,
white velvet revers ; these mooting below
the bosom to allow the bodice fastening of
three big black velvet buttons. Under the
came little shoulder fur-bor
revers a capo , -
dered , and with the frock belonged a big
flat black velvet hut trimmed with bows of
black ribbon.

At a morning concert yestei-day 1 could not
help noticing how many women wear the
close little Marie Stewart bonnet that Is Just
the merest close fitting c.ip of velvet with an
antique touch. iimint ] and piquant in its effect
on some faces , not so successful always.
A geranium red silk warmed the day In
front of me. I don't know why people
shouldn't wear red to concerts if they choose ,
but the old conservative that hides In some
corner nf me nlways persists ill finding it
unusual. This particular red gown hud a
double skirt edged with cocks' fenlhets ,
bhick. burnished and hinting of green. H
hud a round waist that fastened with three
jet buttons , and it hud , moreover , wide
square ruvors lhat passed over the shoulders
and made n hood behind. These revers had
feather edgings , and above them set a black
felt hat that was trimmed with cocks' plumes.
Off at on" hide sat a woman in a peculiarly
novel frock of a cindery gray cloth with a
deep border of llame-colored velvet about
the foot , softened on cither ediio with a line
of gray ostrich niching. The bodice had n
pointed front of llery velvet , 1th its gray
and feathery mnoko fringe. The back was
shirred at shoulders and waist , and the long
skirt lay. as no walking dress has any moral
fight to He along the floor. All this smoke
and blaze had as its llery crown a liny gray
turban with red wings.
It has a relief after that bit ot pyrotech
nics to turn to a gray and blue plaid frock
that had H seal a row or two bohind. Over
the princess rene that silt so demurely , ab
sorbed In the music , two lengths of gray
bilk wore draped and caught up to show the
uaderdress with silver buttons and heavy
silver cords. The broad rovers df the bodice
were of old blue silk and their points were
so deep as almost to meet In the middle of
the back behind. A big flat gray-velvet hat
was the finish , trimmed with blue velvet and
an iridescent wing.
Some dresses are pretty nnd some dresses
practicable. A gown that succeeded reason
ably well in being both was a brown camel's
hair with three rows of blue velvet about
tlio foot , edged with silver fox fur. The
bodice was shirred Into a deep folded velvet
girdle , and again at the throat into a velvet
yoke , from which fell a deep gathered collar
of fur-bordered wool.A three-cornered hat
of brown felt was worn with blue plumes
standing erect in properly rampant fashion.
