F.sperlally Good Bracelets
with Short Sleeves.
The high-backed combi of our grand
mothers' time, the hair Jewelry popular
fifty years ago, cameos and old-fashioned
pieces of Jewelry In general, have been re
vived to decorate the summer girl of 39CT.
Women without old Jewelry of their own
re searching the antique shops and even
the pawn shops for heirlooms whose own
ers have been ohHged to part with them.
The fashion has brought unusual pros
perity to one shop whose owner has been
In the business for more than forty years
The place Is filled to overflowing with
i curios of all sorts gathered from the four
corners of the earth and each one of them
has some special value, from the stand
'point either of antiquity or of exquisite
'Workmanship. For the owner of the estab
lishment Is not a mammon worshiper, but
loves the business for Itself. He bought
every piece In his collection because he
aw something beautiful In It, and If he
doesn't sell It, why, he is able to enjoy It
mo much longer.
To pas, amethyst and coral are perhaps
more In demand than any others of the
eeml-preclous stones. The corals are scarce.
The best comes from Sicily. Some are Im
ported from Japan, but they are speckled
or- mottled with white and are not so deli
cate and pretty as the Sicilian. While a
mall neck string can be purchased for
(23, the long coral Deck chains cost as
much as 1100.
The hair Jewelry ( also somewhat scarce.
Fifty years ago It was the fashion for a
woman to have various articles of Jewelry
made fom her own hair or that of friends.
These ornaments were mounted in gold,
perhaps with the addition of pearls as a
Usually there were Included In a set a
.necklace, a breastpin and earrings. In one
set which has been brouvht out of a Jewel
box after long confinement there the neck
lace Is made of hair finely woven in a long
circular strand, after which It is separated
to Imitate beads by narrow gold fillets.
A gold ball Is placed directly in the cen
ter, from which depend two bells made
of hair with tiny gold clappers.
The breastpin Is In the shape of a
double bow knot with a gold ornament In
the center, and two bell-like sections dang
ling from them. The earrings are bells.
In its day such a set cost about $100 for
It waa an art In Itself, the weaving and
plaiting of the hair Into ornaments. Now
there is scarely to be found any workers
who are familiar with the art.
' SasnJ-Prceloas Stones.
Possessors of cameos can utilise them
easily now. One of the most effective
methods of setting them is In the shape of
a dog collar.
One young woman who discovered in
the family Jewel box a lot of old cameos
belonging to her mother had them ar
ranged In this fashion. The largest cameo,
the brooch of the set, waa set In front,
with the earrings on either side and the
smallor stones reaching around to the
clasp at the back, the cameos bcJng fast
ened together with three rows of tiny flat
While mythological characters are used
largely In the designs In cameos there is
an old custom which Is being revived
today of having the features of some dear
friend or member of the family carved
thereon. One woman whose first child
died shortly after birth had its lineaments
delicately worked out In cameo style on
a large breastpin, which she still wears
in lieu of any other Jewelry.
Broad gold bracelets are popular with
young folks and meet a want long felt by
those wearing short or elbow sleeves. One
favorite style frequently seen Is the book
cnuin oruceiei anu consists 01 many over-
tupping pieces 01 inin goia. inese are
usually about an Inch in width, while the
neck chains to match are not more than a
third as broad.
Heavy flat bracelets, carved and wrought,
are also being worn, and old Greek coins
linked together form others of the many
Quaint arm ornaments which the fad has
unearthed. Carbuncles framed In settings
of old yellow gold are effective, and ame
thysts, cut oblong and set In flat settings
of chased gold, are equally beautiful.
One of the developments of the old Jew
elry fad la the fanoy of collecting watch
bridge, which are small circular pieces of
gold or silver cut out In open work' fashion
and covered with fine obaalng. These
bridges were used upon old-fashioned time
pleoea made In Switzerland and England,
Fhey are used alone to form bracelets,
necklace or belt buckle, or are used to
oin aeml-precious stones In the form of a
necklace. One dog collar recently seen
showed alternate watch bridges and corne
lian. No two of thaxe bridge are alike,
for the reason that they were all made

SOCIETY FOR PROTECTION OF PASSENGERS
Women Propose to Investigate Trans

Bring- About Improvement
The Society for the Protection of Pas
senger's PJghts, composed of about forty
prominent New Tork women, with Mrs.
John Fowler Trow as president, has been
organised and has commenced Investiga
tion of all things pertaining to street
transportation of passengers In the city of
New Tork and Its environs. The work Is
being carried on under five committees,
one to attend to the elevated, another to
the subway and a third to the surface
lines. Another committee will Investigate
transfer evils and another will look after
the Fifth avenue stage. The cause of
ovrr-crowded care, Brooklyn bridge break
downs, car ahead changes, the dirty con
dition of cars and lack of courtesy on
part of conductors are among other things
receiving attention with a view of Im
proving transportation service. If after
presenting the facts and result of their
Investigation to the heads of the combined
transportation companies a marked Im
provement Is not evident the society will
take the case into court and is fully pre
pared to sustain the cause of the people
against the corporation. The work of this
organization Is being watched by club
women In other large cities and in several
places civic improvement committees and
clubs have undertaken a like work.
Doniestlee Service Corporation.
An association of prominent women of
Montelalr, N. J., have formulated a plan
by which they propose to solve the servant
girl problem. They propose to organise a
Domestlo Service corporation and have
called a public meeting to discuss its de
tails and secure the suppbrt and co-operation
of the householders. They propose
to "do away with the drudgery of the
kitchen and substitute for it a perfectly
equipped, skillfully managed central plant
which shall prepare all the family food,
bring It to the house three times a day
and take away the soiled dishes, leaving
to the housewife only the pleasant task of
arranging the table as it suits her fancy.
Women's Press Day at Jamestown.
The Women's National Press association
some months since accepted an Invitation
from the governing board of the James
town exposition to hold a conference and
special day for women engaged in literary
and Journalistic work. This conference will
be held Juno 7 and 8. A cordial lnvltutlon is
hereby extended to all members of the

School Teachers' Bill Vetoed.
Mayor McClellan of New Tork has vetoed
the much discussed teachers' equal pay
bill and the New York Board of Education
has suspended two teachers and threatens
to. suspend others for going to Albany to
work for the passage of the bill. This
state of a ITnirs Illustrate the disadvan

SOUTHERN WOMAN'S INVENTION
Intended to Benefit Hospital Patients
Mrs. Muller'. Doable
A southern woman has Teen practicing
philanthropy of two different kinds In New
York for the last year. For one thing
?he has been providing for northern con
sumption southern dishes good to eat, and
in addition she has been trying to persuade
the hospitals to adopt an idea which she
thinks would be of benefit to the patients.
Blie is Mrs. Caroline Nicholas Muller of
New Orleans. Mrs. Muller, who is 95, Is a
daughter of Robert Carter Nloholas, United
States senator from Louisiana, and a direct
descendant of Robert Carter, commonly
railed King Carter, who was twice royal
governor of the colony of Virginia and
president of the house of burgesses
For muny years she was prominent In
the social and club life of New Orleans.
Slie was the first secretary of the Quorante
club and a member of the board of man
agers of the Woman's club and of the
Woman's exchange. In 1390 she founded
the first training school for nurses in the
city. ThU school subsequently developed
Into the Ctiarlty hospital. It waa through
her visits to the patients that she was
Impressed with the great need of some
apparatus by means of which very sick
persons could be moved from bed to bath
tub, carriage and operating table.
"A nurse told me one day," aha said
"that she bad givsu live battle that altar-

noon to typhoid patients, and that she had i
been obliged to have the assistance of six
other nurses In making the transfer from
bed to tub. It occurred to me that there
must be some way in which those suffering
from typhoid could receive the prescribed
treatment without Involving tho expendi
ture of so much physical and nervous en
ergy on tho part of the nurses."
After studying tho problem long Mrs.
Muller Invented a device which she thinks
accomplishes that end. A model has been
In use in the Charity hospital. New Orleans,
for four years. It contests of an open
framework of enameled Iron, comprising
four vertical posts on wheels, connected
at the top and bottom by horizontal bars.
On the upper horizontal bar is a group of
pulley wheels, from which Is suspended by
steel wires a platform of woven wire and
By turning a screw the platform can be
made to swing horizontally or to descend a
distance of several feet. It is raised by
means of a hydraulic pump attached to
one of the vertical posts. By means of
this aparatus patients in the New Orleans
hospital are moved from their beds to
stretchers, operating tables and baths
without the sliKhtest discomfort to them
selves, and without causing the slightest
fatigue to the nurses.
Circumstances having brought Mrs.
Muller to New York she found here a field
In which to exercise her skill in another di
rection than invention. Twice a week sho
dispatches to one of the branches of the
Woman's exchange a consignment of deli
cacies, which she says "northerners have
no notion of concocting." In the first piace,
there fs chicken gumbo which no one who
hud not at some time or other been In the
confidence of a real old time Creole knows
anything about. Secondly there Is the gen
uine Lady Baltimore cake, whose dellelous
ness is beyond . dispute. No recipe for this
dainty is considered authentic unless its
pedigree is uttested by a notary's seal. A
number of New York women firmly believe
that Mrs. Muller possesses one of the great
and Jealously guarded originals, for they
refuse to purchuse this particular kind of
cake from any one but her. She also makes
pralines., the confection rendered famous
by the turbaned old negro mammies of
New Orleans, who sell them on the street
corners. They bear a faint resemblance to
that combination of maple sugar and pecan
nuts end cream known us Mexican kisses.
but Mrs. Muller Insists that the two are
not to be mentioned in the same breath.

Hlgglns does not know when his mother
will arrive. The lost letter ho recolved
from her stated she would come aa soon aa
she could. The letter indicated she has no
money to pay her expenses out here.
The solitary cell In which Hlgglns Is con
fined was visited by a large drove of people
Sunday. Hlgglns expressed considerable
disgust at the number of visitors he had
had and said he preferred to be left alone.
