TIIK LAIIiHtl.Ml WOMAN.
Society of to-day is on a queer"
basis, ut leust softnold-linier would
express it. Tho laboring woman li
now tho stirring feminine clement
in the modern or rather western so
cial world. ' Everywhere, wo feel
how great is tho influence of tho
woman who works, and e inevorjr
reform or good ratiso tho effect of
her zeal and faithfulness, linked to
a record of hard work, with nono of
the disagreeable shirked. If the
woman of yesterday has been
dubbed a necessury evil, the woman
of to-day may lie considered a neces
sity for the invention of good; for
sines sho has been transformed
from a beautiful hindrance to a no
ble helper tho world's work has
progressed as never before. Civil
ization, up to tho nineteenth cen
tury, tried to go on one leg, and. it
was a ssir limping alluir at the best.
Soviet v even in tho "5 o'clock tea"
strata, is to-day run by the labor
ing woman. She is the envied one
who in her early career learned the
dress-maker's trade, and coupling
the practicality of it to her later
culture and experience, becomes a
leader in the idea of sense in cloth
ing, and an experimenter for the
benefit of all she comes in contact
with. Look at Mrs. Jeaness Miller.
She is tho great achiever who in her
early career learned a trade or pro
fession and can stand for a oroicen
fortune or helpless father or hus
band, and curry his projects to com
jiletion. LtHik nt Mrs Frank Les
lie, or the wife of tho architect of
the great Rrooklyn bridge. She is
tho beloved and admired lady wno
in her humble homo of poverty and
hard work has unconsciously uevel-oiK-d
a grace of heart and quick
sympathy that will hold and bind
her husband's followers, from the
lowly to th i mighty, and keep his
ideuls and his ambitions high and
pure, and, in secret, fjmooth his
path of every drudgery. There are
instances of this kind too plenty.
We find every time that the power
on the social throne as well as be
hind it, is the woman who is capa
ble. The girl who grows to be a woman
of achievement is the girl who has
harned to work. The woman who
is resjsvted and influential is the
woman who can do. And if you
look closely into the signs of the
times you will find that she is also
tho woman who is most beloved. At
last she is the one whose love in
return counts for the most and lasts

Aeighborhoous should combine in
