In addition to her tegular work Mrs.

Some Alluring- Urovptlona.
In one of Murlitt's Gorman romance
there is a clover young widow who fools
ber men admirers iu the mutter of ber
"simplo dressing." She wears white
muslin gowns Unit are vastly becoming
and seem alluringly modest and inex
pensive. Only her seamstress, who hems
the yards and yards of tiny lace trim
med ruffles, and her tire woman, who
spends hours at the ironing table "doing
up" tho billows of flimsy fabrio, that

day, only these and other women

In tbe same list of alluring deceptions
must be classed tbe present "plain skirt"

Today the pharmacist is a trained sci
entist, and pharmacy has been elevated
to a profession. In its present form it
hus no nnclean and unpleasant features
and is therefore liked by women. Never
theless it iB only of late years that they
have overcome the former prejudices and
crossed the threshold of the calling.
Thoy have a natural aptitude for the
trade on account of their constitutional
j caution, deftness and delicacy of touch.
The first woman to enter the profession
iu our country wus Mrs. Jane Loring of
Boston, in 1800. She was a grundaunt
of Congressman Loring. Under the old
system there wus no state supervision of
j the profession, and any one oould take
it up who desired without any legal im
( pediments. Under this system over
j 1,200 women became pharmacists. Of
I late years, however, there has been a
profound change in the industry. Partly
I to prevent competition, or rather to re
! strict it, partly to raise the professional
standard, and partly to protect the pub-
lia, colleges of pharmacy bave been
started in various places in tbe oountry
! and laws passed requiring all candidates
for the profession to pass examinations
almost as strict and difficult as tboee
laid down for physicians and lawyera.
The new system has cut down the num
ber of candidates, both male and female.
In Massachusetts not more than a score
of women have passed the examinations
in the past IS years. In New York the
number is said to be nearly 60, and in
the various states of the Union the en
tire total is below 600.
Many marry and leave the calling, a
few have retired, and a few bave oon-
I tinned their studies and bave become
! physioians or chemists. At the present
time the total number or women wno
practice pharmacy either as proprietors,
clerks or apprentices is estimated at
about 1.600. New York Mail and Ex-

The fashion which prevailed asm
time ago of presenting expensive bos

baa entirely gone ont Now a few flow

given by a prominent society woman
vases filled with pink roses were placed
