Women's clubs are different from
men's for which the community has
reason to be devoutly thankful. One
of the oldest and most unanswerable
rock-ribbed, moss-grown objections
to granting woman the freedom of
the city and a voice in the forum was
that they couldn't conduct public af
fairs as well as and in the same way
that men could. Which, incidentally,
was one of the best possible of rea
sons for letting them have a try at
the job they might have made things
worse, but it is hardly within the
bounds of possibility!
When looked at quietly for a mo
mcnt this massive objection simply
resolves itself into an assertion that
women cannot do the things which
men like to do, in the way men like
tn An them, as well as men can. or,
rather, think they can. The objection
is unanswerable, simply because it re
quires no answer. It rested solely
upon the colossal conceit of the male
and his calm assumption that the way
in which he had always done things
was the best, if not the only way to
do them. And if woman couldn't or
wouldn't do them that way, she was
unfit for the duties of citizenship.
But in the beginning the absurd
and illogical challenge was accepted
even by the pioneera in the fight for
the rights of women to be regarded
and treated as people. Their elo
quence was directed towards proving
that women could beat man at his own
game under the irrational rules which
he had laid down. That they could
pack caucuses and steer conventions
as deftly as he could; that they could
comjrt'te with him in industry under
abominable aanitary conditions, or
for ruinous and health-destroying
hours of labor; that they could win
scholarships and prizes and class
standings under his medieval and
stupid forms of higher, education.
Women's colleges were made mere
lavender-water and slavish imitations
of men's colleges already outworn
and antiquated in their methods.
Women's business methods must be
extended the same as men's lonir
hours, foul air, poor light, and even
lower and more starvation wages;
women's clubs were to follow in the
footsteps of men's clubs as closely as
Consequently, when the Woman's
club movement was first formed,
woman's social needs being already
met, and public life, politics and busi
ness being still closed to her, its as
pirations took the only form left open,
and concerned themselves chiefly
with the fields of literature and art.
In their earlier days it was fashion
able and easy to smile at the ambi
tious range of some of Its programs,
fifteen-minute papers on "Art, from
the Egyptians to the Present Day."
The Influence of Music on Architec
ture" and "Was Cleopatra Immoral?"
"Emerson and the Over-Soul," for
getting that those were precisely the
kind of subjects that male aspirations
for culture had concerned themselves
with in academies, lyceums and liter
ary societies from the daya of the
Egyptian mysteries and the Athenian
But it wasn t long before feminine
practicality and public spirit and the
real interests and likings of woman
hood began to assert themselves.
When they had got fully out of their
shells, rid of the cramping restrictions
of the home atmosphere, the subjects
which should not be discussed before
children, the things that men don't
like to be bothered about when they
come home tired from business, the
fetters upon frankness imposed by
hostess upon guests and by the guest
upon hostess, they began to sit up
and take notice of public affairs in a
new and impersonal way. They had
established a sort of feminine Alsatia,
a Free Mark, a literal No-Man's-Land,
where women could come together as
women, not as wives or mothers, or
daughters, or church-workers, or
schemers for social position, but as
citizens of the state, representing the
larger half, and as the guardians and
caretakers of children, full four-fifths
of the community.
After they had ceased to be afraid
of the sound of their own voices, dis
cussing public questions right out in
meeting, it didn't take them long to
discover that although men on the
whole had conducted public affairs
and built and run cities and towns
with a commendable degree of enter
prise and energy, they had made a
terribly messy and untidy and unat
tractive job of it in many respects.
While the main streets were fairly
well paved and kept and the leading
business buildings in presentable and
creditable condition, many of the side
streets, alt the back streets and alleys
and most of the factories and regions
in which the operatives had to live
were in a condition which grossly of
fended both the eye and the nose of
good model housekeepers.

These are so easily made in the
morning for breakfast and can be
eaten either hot or cold for lunch
eon. Served hot with honey they are
most delicious.
Sift two cups of flour with a level
teasooonful of baking soda and a
teaspoonful of cream tartar, add a
good pinch of salt and two table-
spoonfuls of sugar, then rub in two
and a half ounces of butter; mix to a
stiff dough with sour milk, turn on
to a floured board and knead lightly
with the finger tips. Then roll out
to a half inch in thickness. Cut in
triangle shape, brush with milk and
bake in a moderate oven about twen
ty minutes. Split open and butter,
place together and serve hot.
Smart Things for Fall Wear
The new frocks show a general ten
dency toward more snugness of bod
ice and departure from straight up
and down lines. This tendency indi
cates itself in many and varied ways,
and some of these are more interest
ing than beautiful.
One of the smartest of the new fall
serge models is of navy blue com
bined with soiree silk in a beautiful
shade of purple. The purple silk trims
the bodice and cuffs and forms a band
at the lower part of the skirt, which
is edged with flutings of the serge.
The new boat-shaped veil is at its
best when draped over a rather small
hat, also elongated in shape. The veil
is thrown over the hat so that the
point in front falls well below the
bust and the sides and back of the veil
drape over the sides and back of the
hat. These veils are made of fine hex
agonal mesh with scattered designs
in dots.
For giving the autumn frock that
proper assistance that shall make it
stand out in the skirt, cling fast to the
waistline, and maintain a chic and
dignified erectness at the collar, there
are various stiffening and supporting
mediums all invisible to the observ
er's eye, save in their effect on the
season's silhouette. Limp, indeed, and
hopelessly passe, would be the unas
sisted constume.
The new evening frocks have fitted
bodices or rather, filmy, draped bod
ices over foundations of teatherboned
satin or silk. When the foundation is
dispensed with, the diaphanous little
bodice of tulle, chiffon or lace is
drawn under a trim girdle or sash,
fitted, over a featherbone girdle that
clings to the waistline without sug
gesting rigidity. Of course, below the
trim waist the fluffy skirt flares wide.
There are smart plainly tailored
suits meant for wear with fur sets or
without. The best of these are not
built upon the extreme lines, but fol
lowing the new silhouettee at a re
spectful distance, they are the best
loooking plain tailored suits that have
been seen in many a day. They are
not shapeless, neither are they given
over to excrescences. There are gra
cious curves in them, but they do not
fit tightly at the waist nor flare too
radically over the hips nor at the skirt
bottom. The skirt is wide enough for
perfect freedom and comfort without
One of the most snugly fitted of the
new tailored models noted recently
was a costume of gray velvet. The
coat front crosses over from the right
to the left and fastens with three
