.IPS IDA IfUSTED HARPER, of
ficial biographer of Susan D. An
thony and a auffraglst worthy of
the cause, ia In Europe studying
the condition of woman In tha
Old World. In a letter to tha New Tork
Sun Mill Harper comparea tha rights and
privileges enjoyed by women abroad and
thoaa at home, and reachea tha conclusion
that American women are not aa lucky as
they have been pictured. Tha reasons for
thla startling- conclusion are stated by
Miss Harper, in part, aa follows:
There la no agency more effective In
Irking the bumptiousness out of the
American woman than the International
Council of Women. Every five yeara a
large congress Is hold In connection with
the council; the one at Berlin In 1S04 la
still fresh In mind, and that of London
In H99, not yet forgotten. The con
gress of 10 will take place In Canada.
Between these quinquennials smaller
meetings occur, known as International
executives, and one of these la now In
progress In Tarls, which brings ua back
to our opening remark, that these gather
ings are an effective means for taking
the conceit out of American women. Thla
might apply to thoaa of other countries
also, but their egotism la not of such

Care of Wood Floors.
The way In which a wood floor should
be cared for depends on several circum
stances. If It is of oak tha best of all
flooring woods it Is necessary to consider
whether It has been varnished.
It ought not to have been, declares an
architect writing for Everyday House
keeping. No varnish of any kind, not even
shellac, should be allowed to touch a floor
of hard Wood, whether new or old.
Unfortunately all painters except the
most skilful and conscientious Insist on
varnishing these floors, laughing to acorn
the prohibition of the architect. From
their own point of view the painters have
reason for their opinion, for varnishing
Is a cheap and a quick method of giving
the floor a polish which will last till they
get their pay.
Perhaps there la also some secret al
lurement In the thought of tha long and
profitable Job whjch may come to them a
few yeara later In scraping and burning
off with oxalic acid thla aame varnlan,
grown hopelessly black and patchy.
For the housekeeper the only thing la to
Insist sternly that oak, birch, maple, syca
more or Georgia pine shall be finished
only with wax. Even then painters will
evade the plainest directions.
Some will proceed, unless watched, to
cover the floor with a sort of varnish hav-
dlant with tha victory of having gained tn gloss 1ns sting that this

ment, although their first woman suffrage
association - waa formed less than two
years ago. The women of the United
State cam with the bitter humiliation
of the overwhelming defeat In Oregon,
after more than fifty years of continual
agitation and effort.
Those of Australia and New Zealand
have had the full vote for many years, and
the former the right to sit In Parliament.
The women of Great Britain. Sweden and
Norway hav every form of the franchise
xcept that for members of Parliament,
and the prospects are encouraging for
obtaining- that In the near future. Woman
suffrage Is a government measure In Hoi
It look a If the women of all the more
progressive countries would be enfranchised
before those of the United States, and
therefor we can no longer boast of the
freedom and liberality of, our country at
these International meetings. Even though
w should say that our laws are more
favorable and our personal liberty greater
the other women would answer that a

During th Berlin congress two yeara ago
much prominence waa given to the recog
nition It received from the municipality,
th city appropriating 10,000 marks (2,6U
for a reception and banquet to the delegate,
the entire body of aldermen receiving them
In atate. This action baa In a measure been
outdone by the municipal council of Paris,
which appropriated B.000 francs ($1,000) to
be expended by tha local committee of th
French National Council of Women on thla
Th municipal government did not atop
wltb this, but gar an afternoon reception
for tha delegate tn th magnificent Hotel
aary "to keep the filler from coming out."
There la. In fact, no real need of a filler,
even for an oak floor. But even where It
is used It will stay In place perfectly well
without shellac, which Inevitably cause
the floor to wear patchy In a few years.
The true reason for the palnter'a par
tiality for the use of shellac is that It
saves wax, which is expensive, and saves
labor and time.
But suppose that our oak floor waa
properly finished In the beginning; It will

dirt and dull patches. The dirty streak
are caused by dust sticking to the wax,
and the dull patches by dampness, prob
ably from wet shoes.

The girl said rapturously:

stood the policeman's beautiful steed, look

The Peek-a-noo Waist.
"The Ministerial association of Dubuque,
la., has declared war on tho 'peek-a-boo'
waist. Each member stands pledged, It
is said, to preach, at an early day, a ser
mon on 'Slaves to Fashion, In which
the 'peek-a-boo' waist shall be ruthlessly
exposed and mercilessly denounced.
"We are hearing news of much the
same character from other parts of the
country," comments the Chicago Inter
Ocean. "East, west, north and' scith the
moralist are much disturbed over tho
peek-a-boo' waist. It seems, however,
that only the moralists and the women
know much about it. Th average man
could not tell a "peek-a-boo' from any
other kind of waist until the difference
had been pointed out to him by some mor
alist or feminine relative or friend. And
