T. REV HENRY C. POTTER,
I Episcopal bishop of New York
I City. Is writing for Hn
Baaar a, notable lerles of papers
"'" 1 ' on women their rnirvminna
progress and the rest. Concerning the
vrugress or women the bishop says: No
more tremendous chango has come to pass
In the last half century than that which
has occurred In the realm of woman. That
change has not, of course, been so great
In western as in eastern lands; for, in the
former, those great ideas which had been
at work, as In England, from the times of
King John and the barons, have produced
their appropriate results In the emanclpa
, tion not aV-ne of men, but also of women.
But whether In Europe or America, two
forces hava been at work In connection
with the status of women, one of them
progressive, and the other conservative
pne of them demanding for both sexes
equal rights and privileges, and the other
appealing to the Bible for the scriptural
warrant for regarding woman as an in
ferior and for koeplng her In bondago. A
Chinaman, when remonstrated with for
holding the women of his house fast
bound to the ancient custpm of deformed
feet, replied, "My wife can't walk, and so
she stay at home;" and even an apostle, in
reciting, as becoming In woman, graces
which he accounted as pre-eminently
praiseworthy, brackets with some of
chlefest value the words "keepers at
In other words, it is undeniable that
half a century ago the Ideal fit woman
was domestlnity; and the. virtues which
find their fittest sphere In the retirement
of the home were accounted of pre-eminent
value. But all that is changed, and
It can never be forgotten (and I pray
heaven that it never may be!) that such
services as Dorothea Dlx and Florence
Nlghingalo and Sister Dora and their kind
have illustrated were not rendered by
staying at home.
It Is quite idle to Ignore the fact that
the whole situation of women is changed,
and Is destined to be still more extensively
changed, during this twentieth century.
There burst Into rr.y office not long ago
a masterful lady who, with Imperious metn
end strident voice, demanded, "Sir! What
Is your opinion of woman's suffrage?"
VMadum." I replied, crouching behind a
stout oaken desk and taking care that
njr rear was open for swift retreat, "I
have gotten a great way beyond that; I
am trying to make tho best terms with
your tex that I can!" And though the Im
perious lady did not seem to be altogether
satisfied with this answer. I am sure that
it embraces the best wisdom to which a
mere man may attain! In a foreign Journal
which I stumbled upon recently In a for
eign land. I saw It stated as the opinion
of some learned American professor that
in thirty-five years the reins of govern
ment In theae I'nited States will be In the
hands of women.
In a word, greatness in womanhood is
like greatness In nature. The mightiest
forces In the realm In which men and
women are railed to do their work an the
quietest and serencst forces. And Just as
we turn from the fierce gust of the hot
sirocco that tears and roars and beclouds
Its way across the desert to. the silent
and sovereign sun that kisses the wide
harvests Into life. Just so we turn from
that favored and overhurrylng step which

of fine black straw on the rather wide
drooping brim. A wide, soft ecarf of black
chiffon taffeta was folded about the crown,
passing through a big buckle of finely cut
Jet In front and tied In a big, loose bow at
the back of the crown.
Two very full, handsome black ostrich
plumes came from under this bow and
curved downward, gracefully over the hair.
There wna nothing bizarre or conspicuous
about this black hat. but It had a surpris

Another hat, wider of brim and moro
ngKrexslve of air, was of chip. Pale blue
taffeta was folded closely around the low
crown and a big bow of blue taffeta was
under the brim at the back. At the left
side were posed four handsome feathers,
two short and two long, the latter drooping
low on the shoulder. A cluster of small
pink roses was set at the starting point of

models, and some excellent color effects
are obtained with shaded feathers In thla
way, though the lines of the hat are seldom
ao graceful as are those of modela In which
the plumes are left more free.
A yellow and white hat pictured here
was a case In point and was a charming
thing lif color, but a trifle heavy In line.
The straw was apparently a leghorn In a
deep gold yellow tone and was veiled In a
fine silk lace of creamy white, caught by
little roses shading from yellow to pink. The
one big plume waa white next the stem,
but shaded through light yellow to the, color

In white ostrich plumes, or, preferably,

In white mallnes and plumes.
Leghorns, trimmed In ribbon and flowers,
are always lovely and some of the new
models are altogether charming, though
often so picturesque that they demand a
piquant and pretty face beneath them If
they are not to be failures In spite of their
beauty. Take, for example, such a hat as

An Indian Belle's fl,XM Shawl.
"Kluwa Annie," as she is called, but
whose real name is Ma-me-na Oatal-ka, a
noted Kiowa fullblood girl, 19 years of age,
owns one of the handsomest shawls in the
United Slates, reports the Kansas City
Star. It has cost her $1,250 and ten years' .
work, and is said to be worth about $5,000.
There are m elks' teeth securely fastened
by tiny silk cords. These teeth have been
handed down through at least three gen
erations, and were carefully gathered up
from among the Kiowa Indians by this
girl, who Is accounted one of the hand
somest women In the entire tribe.
"I have never named a price for the
shawl, and, what is more. I am not going
to sell it at any price. It haa cost me a
great many ponies and cattle, which I sup
pose would have sold for as much money
aa the shawl would sell for today, but I
wanted the elks' teeth for my own use.
They represent many thousands of dollars
today, but they will more than double In
value within ten years. You know elk
have been almost entirely exterminated,
like the buffalo, and It will be only a few
years until these teeth will be worth their
weight In gold.
"Many of the teeth on my shawl were
kept by my people as sacred emblems, but,
you know, I have outgrown such notions.
When Indians become educated they get
all such nonsense out of their heads. The
ghost dance and other freakish religious
ceremonies are fast passing away, and our
tribe Is beginning to adopt the ways of
white people. I am very glad of this, for
we can never hope'to cope with our white
brethren until we give up old traditions
and religions. While It Is true that my
father still clings to the Messiah Idea and
all such unreasonable things, he never told
his children to follow' him In such belief.
"I know of another Kiowa girl who ownt
more teeth than I do. Her collection oon
tlstt of 1,128, and she would not sell them
for $10,000. I often visit her. She Is one
of the prettiest girls In the Indian country
and is entitled, to the name of Indian
belle, If, indeed, there are any among us
who might be to considered. Her name is
Ah-a-tone Gotebo, a daughter of the great
War chief, who is now a-Baptist minister
among our people. This young woman wae
at Carlisle with me, and is well educated.
Her suitors are numerous, but mine are
tearce. I account for this because she Is
handaome and I am very, very ugly. Fur
thermore, she owns almost twice as many
elk teeth as I do, and that may be a reason
for her greuter number of admirers."
Business of Mnnnelnsr a Home.
To make a success of anything, be It
business or housekeeping, says the St.
Louis Republic, the chief thing required Is
the determination to use one's brains and
energy to their greatest canacltv. anrl m
do as perfectly as possible the work that
one takes In hand.
It has been rather the fashion smnnv
the present generation to look down on
nousewirery. and. somehow or other, girls
expect to know such things by Instinct di
rectly they are married. Now. It takes
some little time and no small amount of
trouble to stretch a tiny income a.i that
It can be made to meet all necessary ex
penses and yet leave a margin for saving.
Even If a young wife has a vrrv small
amount a week on which to keep house
for herself and her husband, she certainly
ought to be able to put by a little each
Tfce easy way In which to manna an al
lowance, whether big or small. Is to appor
tion It out carefully on paper, and decide
exactly how much can be spent on one
thing and how much on another.
Start with some scheme, however rough
ond Imperfect, anl as the weeks go on
and experience comes the various items
can be readjusted to suit any special re
quirements. Do not, however, think that It Is abso
lutely necessary to precisely keep to all
the details of your scheme. The benefit
you get by having one is this: ' Suppose
you allow a certain amount per week for
meat, and suddeenly find that by the mid
dle of the week you havo already spent
mors than balf of It. Then you know that
brim down picturesquely and finishing In a
big bow at the back of the head.
Only a charming woman should venture
upon such a hat as that, but if the wearer
Is charming and young, what could be more
delightful with a sheer summer frock
under a summer sky?
There are other Leghorns not so radical,
most of them trimmed In roses and ribbon,
either taffeta or velvet, and some of them
rather narrow of brim and with these nar
row brims draped up In the most unusual
fashions. These little draped hats and
toques are shown, too. In Manila and other
flue pliable straws, and some of them are
very smart little affairs, but for the sum
mer Leghorn nothing is prettier than the
wide flopping brim with Its carefully care
less curves and lines.
White chip shapes, flower trimmed, are
numerous and often very attractive. On
the whole, the brims are inclined to droop
rather than to curl upward and the modi
fied mushroom Ideas of the winter flnJ
echo In many of the straw shapes; but
there are a few chip models which recall
the roll brim French sailor, with the brim
rolling slightly upward and narrower at
back and front than at the sides.
One French milliner has used these shapes
with no trimming on the outside save little
bunches of tiny roses set closely together
all around the low crown. No two bunches
are the same color, but they run through
all the delicate pale tints, melting harmoni
ously Into each other without a single Jar
Under the brim on the back Is a big soft
bow of taffeta in one of the pale tints and
the bandeau Is covered with mallnes In the
same shade. This model Is simple enough
so far as lino Is concerned, but an Infallible
color sense It needed for the supremely
successful shading of the flornl trimming.
It is In this matter of color harmonies
that the French milliner reigns supreme,
and In nothing does this show more plainly
than In the combinations of red and pink
which she handles so successfully. A single
wrong note would reduce these chic color
harmonies to excruciating; failures, but the
wrong note Is not there when the urttst
milliner of Paris has a hand In the making.
All of which was suggested by memory
of a daring hat In which crln trimmed In
soft ribbons of shaded pinks and reds and
In masses of pink and red roses. There was
a white chip hat, too, a hat with a low
broad crown and a rather narrow, droop
ing brim, which had pink and red wings
you must manage more sparingly for
meat for the rest of the week. Think
how much better that Is than if you went
on buying haphazardly, and at the end
of the week found you had spent twice aa
much as you ought .to on meat.
Or, again, if you find that you spend
more than you had allowed for one thing,
you must save the money on another.
Suppose, for Instance, you spend more
than usual on vegetables and meat one
day; you muBt arrange to do without a
dessert, or get something very cheap In
deed for the next day's dinner.
No scheme of expenditure can be prop
rly carried out unless you keep strict ac
count of how every penny goes. It is a
good thing to have a little pocket account
book and enter every Item In it In pencil
If you prefer It, and then at the end of
the week enter the various totals In a
larger book butter so much, bread so
much, milk, etc.
A young wife should try and be very
careful and accurate about keeping her ac
counts, and should make a point of going
through them with her hsuband every
week, asking his advice In any difficulty.
Another thing which helps is careful
buying. It Is much cheaper and better to
buy things nt a-good store than from peo
ple who call at the door. You Invariably
get better value and Just what you want
If you choose things yourself.
Always see your own meat cut off and
take care that a lot of useless fat and
gristle Is not weighed out with It.
It Is a wise plan when settling In a fresh
neighborhood to deal at first with several
Htores of the same kind, and note down
and compare on a bit of raper the prices
and qualities of the goods you buy, so that
you find out where you get the best value
for your money. Never on any account
sacrifice fine quality to cheapness. It Is
false economy to buy bud, cheap food and
than have a doctor's bill to pay.
It Is also a great waste of good meat to
boll and roast It. Every young wife should
InveBt in two brown earthenware Jars with
lids. One should be kept for cooking fish,
the other for meat, aa all food cooked in
this way preserves the Juices and is much

Silks are advancing so rapidly in price
that they bid fair to be noted among the
luxuries for the coining season, and yet
there is promised a rt-turn of the separate
silk skirt, both in black and color, and
a positive raije for the silk tailored suit.
The Muck skirt Is coming back to its
own. In voile, cloth and all of the nets,
which will be welcome news to those who
cling tenaciously to the separate blouse,
for, of course, it presages a reincarnation
of that. These separate skirts are to be
fnshioned chiefly on plaited lines, with the
kilt the most popular.
One very strong feature of the wash
gowns will be the contrasting of trimmings
with the material. For instance, white
frocks, even those for very dressy occa
sions, will have bands or medallions of
lace either entirely colored or picked out
in colors; and, vice verao, colored frocks
will be trimmed with white.
Novelty, according to all forecasting,
will be the keynote of ths spring style.
Although the fabrics may not differ greatly
from those of last season, they may lie
put to novel uses snd combinations. For
example, stripes which are promised aa
prominent features will be trimmed with
bias bands, diagonal stripes with straight
bands and bias stripes with vertical bands.
Materials which show unassuming pattern
win be combined with trimmings strongly
For walking costumes of th seml-tailor-Ing
order there Is a new garment of the
rcdlngote type which reaches the three
quarter length and has an odd little cape
topping It. This begins In a point at the
back waist line. Is slashed at either side
of the shoulder, forming a sleeve cap, and
ends In flchu-fashlon Just below the bust.
The cape, like the redlngote. Is trimmed
to match th skirt, as It Is Invariably a
part of ths suit and not Intended In any
way as a separate wrap.
A confection made In New Tork for a
debutante's southern outfit is of fine hand
kerchief linen, the skirt cut circular gored,
with the front and back an embroidered
panel done In red, blue and ecru. Around
the bottom It Is given a bias band of blue
linen, piped on etther side with ecru linen.
The bodice Is virtually a Jumper, although
it is not designed to wear over an undur
blouse, hut lias that effect, because of a
deep yoke of wasti lace, ecru, laid over
blue. The yoke ia cut In three rounded
points and finished with n inch band
similar to the one on th skirt, while the
blouse proper Is embroidered, carrying nut
the design shown in the skirt panels. Th

running bark over the crown and many
folds of pink and red mallnes swathed
about the crown and under the brim.
Among the lingerie hats there Is a rem
iniscent note. It is hard to ring any radical
changes upon the lingerie Idea of millinery.
Some small lingerie hats in very fine
batiste, with frilled brims of embroidery or
composed of many narrow frills of Valen
ciennes, falling close to the coiffure, and
with wreaths of tiny roses for frimmlng,
have long scarf ends of the batiste and
lace to be drawn forward over the shoul
ders or short scarf ends, falling straight
In the back and making a pretty back
ground for an attractive face.
The subject of the summer hats brings
one Inevitably to thought of summer wraps
and parasols, but discussion of these must
be for another day. A few wraps there
are which absolutely court sketching and
description, so picturesque are they, and
yet se simple.
These are the cloth wraps of the cape
order, depending on grace of line rather
than on any elaboration for their beauty.
Two of these, the Monte Carlo and the,
San Rerao. are shown here and every
woman will admit their charm In the ca
pacity of little wraps to be thrown on over
sheer summer frocks.
The larger cape Is of white cloth, cut
circular and without seams, but plaited
up over the arm to suggest huge sleeves.
There Is no lining and the cloth falls In
clinging folds. A collar and narrow waist
coat and the little buttons which are set
down each side of the front are of small
dull soft shade of cloth, a dull gold or
raspberry or amethyst, or what you will.
The smaller cape is even more simple and
entirely devoid of trimming and color save
for th velvet collar and the four velvet
buttons near the throat; but the grace of
the garment gives It a smartness which
many a more elaborate confection lack a
Modern Woman Her Ways
'At IT WAS Just before Christmas and
I a group of sightless children were
i talking over the coming of Santa
Claus at the Blind Babies' home,
each one wondering what he
would bring him. One of the girls was
prompting Cornelius, a 5-year-old, in his
"Don't you remember, Cornelius," said
she, "you wanted one of those games you
win money on what do you call It?"
"Oh, yes," returned Cornelius, suddenly
remembering his principal wish, "a cash
register, that's what I want. One of them
things you press a button and get all the
money you want."
Post-holiday labor In the savings banks
of the city revolves about the receiving
teller mainly. Before Christmas It was the
paying teller who was overworked paying
out money with which to buy gifts, but the
day after the holiday the tide turned and It
was the receiving teller who had scarcely
time to eat. Every one waa banking pres
ents of money received on Christmas day.
This was particularly th case In those
institutions that women frequent.
Non but those who live in flats knows
how difficult It It to hide Christmas pres
ent. No best rooms, attics or store rooms
ar available; only th already over
crowded floor space beneath divans, beds
Thlt scarcity of storage rooms was the
cause of a catastrophe In a flat household,
the feminine branch of which had the
mortification of teeing her husband'
gift fairly precipitated Into the midst of
th family meal th night before the holi
day. The gift, a willow chair, had ar
rived In th. afternoon and the question
what to do with It until morning waa
solved by its bring tucked away In a small
passageway between the dining room and
hall, which was curtained off and used as
a ator room.
Th chair could not rest upon the floor,
mainly because the floor space was al
ready pre-empted by numerous other arti
cles of household use so it was perched
up on top of the clothes basket, a trunk
and what not.
All went well until the family were In
the midst of supper when f-r some un
known reason -probably pure cussedness
there was a crash and the chair sud
denly flew out into th room, taking tha
portiere with It and nearly landing in the
center of tha dining table. Its arrival
was so sudden and unexpected that con
sternation prevailed for a moment Then

Samplers are treasured as heirlooms in
many families nowadays and tho problem
of their preservation is sometimes a diffi
cult one to solve. The wool cross stitch
makes a dainty morsel for moths, but if

One woman recently had a sampler
framed exactly as one would a picture.
For it she selected a convex mahogany

width which harmonized most happily
with tho needlework and canvas. It now
ornaments the wall of her library and it

harmonized charmingly and all told did
not coat more than $11 for the two palra.
The canvas la Iposely woven and re
sembles burlap In appearance, though
much softer and hangs much mora grace

very wide. The velveteen, which Is also
double width, ran be obtained In a number
of soft colorings and while handsome is
not so rich looking that It kills every-1
thing else In the noom. It Is especially
effective with mahogany or dark oak and
with Circassian walnut.
A woman who has had the good fortune
to retain two servants in her family, on
for twenty-six and the other for nineteen
years, was asked recently, in th presence
of her husband, what waa the secret of her
success. While sh waa ruminating on
th question, her husband answered for

'"AH that Is necessary Is to let th servants

A Japanese woman in this city has dis
covered a way of hiding from sight the
ugly steam radiators inevitable In flats.
A cabinet, the fac of which Is grill work,
Is built about th radiator, th top being
utilized as a shelf for plecet of china or
bronze, or It may take the plc of a stand
for newspapers and magazines.
In one room a radiator, which was very
low and extended across an entire sid of
th room, waa covered by a low Uo of
matting. The front has sliding doors of
Japanese wlckerwork In summer, while In
winter the doors are pushed back allowing
the heat to escape through a delicate par
tition of grill work. The Idea can be
adapted In a dozen different ways and with
different materials, but la always affective
In that it transforms an ugly necessity
into a practical bit of home furnishing.
. Artificial grapes played an Important part
In an effective schema of table decoration
recently seen. The entire chandelier was
prettily festooned with the vines rom
which depended big bunehes of green anl
purple grapes. In the midst of which shone

pale yellow paper shades. For a center
