Althrotigh there is scarcely any
profession, business or trade in
which at least one woman is not
engaged, the number of professions
that arc open generally to women
is limited. This limitation is set by
the inferiority ol women to men in
physical strength. A woman lacks
the physique requisite to enable her
to be a competent soldier, police
man or stevedore, and there are
very few professions in which she
can compete on the same terms
with men. It is a curious fact that
even at what is commonly called
''women's work," such as cooking,
dressmaking, millinery and hair
dressing, men easily surpass women.
The foremost chefs, modistes, milli
ners and hairdressers in the world
arc males. Women, however, com
pete at some advantage with men
on account of their steadier habits
and their willingness to work for
lower wages than men demand.
Pedigogy is the principal pro
fession open to women, and the
profession in which the greatest
number arc engaged and in which
women are most successful. Women
make good teachers in lower grades,
but in universities the profession is
still in the control of men. There
is no apparent reason why women
should not do well in college fncul-
lies, ami u is surprising mat more
of them are not employed at the
schools of higher education.
Women have been fairly success-
ful at the practice of medicine,
although they are seldom called
except by patients of their own sex,
cud it must be admitted that most
women yet prefer the ministration
of male doctors. Perhaps in future
years women physicians will gain
the complete confidence of their
own sex and of the other sex and
will be able to build up general
practices like those now enjoyed
by male doctors. A number of
women in this city derive fair in
comes from the practice of medi
cine. The feminine mind and tempera
ment arc not adapted to the prac
tice of law, and not nearly so many
women seek admission to the bar
as obtain licenses to practice medi
cine. The law requires too much
wrangling, to constant a pitting
and too violent a clash of intellects
to attract women.
Nursing is a profession at which
women are ve.y apt and competent.
It is more lucrative than school
teaching, if the nurse has constant
employment, but the work is very
arduous and tiresome. A trained
nurse obtains at least $25 per week,
but she cannot work all the year
round, eveu if there is work for her
It is strange that more women do
not go into commercial business
for themselves. Men enter stores
as errand' boys and rise until they
become partners or proprietors of
the whole business, but one rarely
hears of a woman rising in that
way. Is this failure of women at
tributable to the hostility of men or
to an inherent incapacity for con
ducting a business? Why has no
female Carnegie arisen, 110 Ilavc
meyer in skirts appeared, no Wnna
maker or Marshal Feldi come forth
out of the hundreds of thousands of
women employed in offices, shops
and drygoods stores?
Trade is a richer field than any
employment, but women seek the
salaried places and do not hanker
for the profits of trading. Yet they
make good saleswomen and good
bookkeepers, and do their work
well and with intelligence?

In one extremely important par
ticular Cuba is being Americanized
with great rapidity. W. C. Gor
gas, major and surgeon of the
United States army, and chief sani
tary officer of Havana, in his re
port issued on December 5, 1901,
shows that the sanitary condition
of that city shows an improvement
in each month over the correspond
ing moutii 01 1900, and mat year
scored an advance on all preceding
years. In November, 1898, just at
fthe close of the war with Spain,
and before the United States occu
pation of the city began, there
were 205 deaths in Havana, while
there were 444 in that mouth in
1900, which was the lowest mark
ever reached in that month since
the population of Havana has been
up to any high figure. In No
vember, 1901, the number of
deaths was 443.
Havana, which was formerly
one of the uuhcalthiest cities on
the face of the globe, has now be
come one of the healthiest. The
death rate in 1891 was 106 per
thousand. The Americans reduced
it to 21 per thousand in 1900. In
1901 it has been cut to 19.58 per
thousand. In 1896 there were
1 1 15 deaths in that ciiy from yel
low fever. There were only 79 in
1898. There have been only 5 iu
1901. In November, 1901. tor the
finJt tJmc si,)ce there has not
bec, a s!ngIe case of yellow fever
IIavana In November, 1900,
thcra were 2,4 casesand 54 deaths.
jThere ,ms ,10t been a case thig
j ycar since September s8 October
Lmi November are thc molUhs
when yellow fever is most preva
lent in Havana. Until 1901 there
has never during a hundred years
been a day during those months in
which there were not many cases
of yellow jack in that city.
Here is a field in which Cuba
already has been Americanized,
whether the island sets up an in
dependent government for itself or
not. The scourge by which Cu
ba's population every year has
been thinned to tbe extent of
many thousands has been dimin
ished so radically that it has lost
much of its terrors. In the is
land's chief city it has almost been
abolished. Cuba owes a debt of
everlasting gratitude to the Ameri
cans lor driving out the malady
witli which it has been afflicted
ever since the early days of white
occupation. Iu all the centuries
which have passed since the
Spaniards first settled on the island
there were never so few deaths iu
proportion to the white population
as have taken place in 1901. It is
no longer necessary for the United
States and the world to raise quar
antines against Havana and the
rest of the great cities of Cuba.
Those towns are as free from ma
lignant diseases as are New York,
Philadelphia, St Louis, London,
Berlin and the other great centers!
of the most modern of the nations..
For Cuba's and the world's goodj
the obligation to keep up the)
American system of sanitation is;
one of the provisions of the Platf
amendment which will be binding
on the Cuban republic. Globe
