The philosophers who preach the the
ory of change, of the evanescence of all
things, are less impressed with their
own doctrine than is the summer girl.
Regret has little place in her heart, re
morse no place at all. She wishes vagne-
ly, as she watches Marie fold that black
lace, that she hadn’t allowed herself to
go to the races with the man who after
ward turned out to be a celebrated book
maker; she bites her lips and frowns
when she remembers another little es
capade or two. But then the season is
over; there aro no shopworn goods in
the summer girl's stock.
She has an idea that if she were a
newspaper funny man she would like to
poke a little fun at the summer young
man. He is an uncertain quantity. He
turns out to be all sorts of things—bar
bers, dry goods clerks, tailors.
But then the season is over. She picks
up a certain Nile green silk with a great
stain of ice cream over the front breadth
and strokes it softly with her pink fin
ger tips, while the thoughtful look deep

gloves for this gown? They came to the
shoulder and it was strangely amusing—
was that just the word?—to have some
body draw them off for her at supper.
That corner of the piazza—the soft light
—the music. It always took at least
half an hour to get those gloves off.
Mario could remove them in three sec
onds, but men are clumsier. That one
was particularly so; he used to kiss her
fan and her bouquet and the gloves—
after he got them off; and once, the
night before he left on his yacht, his
lips just brushed her hair as they waltzed
around behind the clump of palms in
But then the season is over!
A Woman's Share In l'asslng tlio Inter-
national Copyright Law.
Mrs. M. S. Burke, the Washington!
journalist, has done some of the best j
congressional correspondence that comes
from the capital. She is well liked and
highly respected by senators and repre
sentatives, who give her free access to
committee rooms and save bits of news
for her. Channels of information are
open to her as they are to the gentlemen
of the press at Washington. A friend
tells me that this bright woman did he:
share of helping on the international
copyright law to its passage. The bill
had been up before the house once,
but failed to pass because a quorum
was not present. It was the closing
days of the session. Speaker Reed
declared in righteous wrath that if
the friends of the measure had not
enough interest in it to vote for it when
it was on he would not call it up again,
because there were so many other neces
sary bills to be put through before ad
journment. Those anxious for the fate
of the bill were in dismay. Meeting
Mrs. Burke one day, several of them
begged her to call on the speaker and
use all her arguments to induce him tc
let the measure come up again. They
had exhausted their powers of persuasion
and he had been obdurate as a rock.
Mrs. Burke called on Mr. Reed and
pleaded with him. He listened to hei
kindly and respectfully, as was his wont.
He told her he would do whatever he
could in tho matter, but would not
promise for certain. Next day, how
ever, the international copyright bill
was passed by the house.
Dr. Edward Everett Hale, writing in
The Cosmopolitan, is rather inclined to
regret that women are so interested in
the machinery of parliamentary usage
and are trying to learn it. May the
Lord forgive Dr. Hale, for he knows not
what he does. If he were to attend a
few women’s meetings and, in the midst
of a vitally important discussion evolv
ing the disbursement of a large sum of
money, behold a woman rise and an
nounce a millinery opening at such a
time, or invite the ladies to a rose tea at
her house next week, he would never
say a word again against women learn
ing parliamentary usage; never.
Mrs. M. H. Hotchkiss has given to the
Yale preparatory school $275,000, and
Yale college will not permit even an an
nex for women to be attached to it.
Very unfortunate it is that there are still
so many women like this, who will thus
deliberately turn and give their own sex
a slap in the face.
The race wants women, strong armed,
strong hearted women, not dolls and
Annie Besant’smotto is this: Be strong.
A grand indication it is to see women
beginning to stand by one another so
firmly. This is especially marked among
newspaper women. In New York I have
noticed that when one can say a kindly
thing of another in a paper, or can help
her privately by a good word or note of
introduction to get work,the aid is always
forthcoming. Somebody has taken occa
sion to be sarcastic about this tendency of
women to “write up” one another, but
the sarcasm is harmless. The fact re
mains that women are glad to help one
another in any way possible, and this
sisterly feeling is extending to all classes.
When they stand by one another against
slanderous criticism and attacks on
character or unkind sayings, then the
millenium will come.
There is something pathetic in the
struggles and ambitions of the negro
women workers. Freedom has rendered
them twice as ambitious in worthy ways
as it has the black men. They wash,
iron and scrub, day in and day out, to
educate their children and get on in the
world. They in many cases support idle
negro men who refuse to work at all
while these faithful, industrious crea
tures can earn the living, though the
black lords are ever ready to “boss” their
wives. So far as my observation ex
tends, the free colored women are worth
far more than the men in industrial
This autumn the New Century club of
Philadelphia will occupy its new home.
This is one of the most successful and
progressive clubs to be found anywhere.
In the new building is a st<ge fitted up
for theatrical performances, and the
club is able out of its own ranks to fur
nish a writer who can make sparkling
and happy dramas for amateur acting.
This writer, Miss Burnham, has written
one parlor drama, “Postal Cards,” which
was successfully given at the Seven
teenth Street theater in Philadelphia.
The New Century club is fortunate.

Now doth that alternately exalted and
reviled, flattered and slandered, that
dainty and ephemeral, fair and fleeting
creature, the summer girl, begin to pack
her twenty trunks for the autumn
hegira. With what different emotions
did she superintend that same titanic
operation three short months ago! With
what fond anticipations did she watch
each rich and dainty bit of finery as it
was carefully laid in its proper place!
With what swelling pride did she sur

preceded her to the station! There was
one trunk for her boots, one for her hats,
one for her underclothes, another just

It is an accepted theory with the
philosopher that the sense of smell is, of
all the senses, the one most closely con
nected with memory; that a familiar
odor will awaken a whole chain of
thought long forgotten, will call up the
past from the grave of dead years as
nothing else can do. It is probable that
the fonnulators of this theory were men,
for every woman knows that as an in
spiration to memory all the petfumes of
Araby are less poignant than the sight
of old and wornout clothes.
What moons shine again, what visions
of wave and sky, what recollections of
long walks on deck under the stars, that
blue yfthting suit with its gold laced
ing table and washstand contrivance is
worthy of being copied. A closet was
devoted to the purpose. Light pine
boarding was used to make a shelf or
washstand top with narrow shelves
above for comb and brush, glasses and
bottles, and a pin cushion. The space
between is filled with a good looking
glass set in like a panel. Below the
large shelf first named is a central space
left unshelved to the floor. Here can be
hung dusters, brushes, etc., safely hid
behind a curtain. The spaces each side,
divided from the center by upright
boards, nre shelved and curtained. Brass
hooks on the door serve to hold towels,
unless one should prefer to hang them
under the central curtain. If so the door
hooks will hold dresses nicely. When
done the small shelves are covered with
light colored muslin. The large shelf
where toilet china is set is to be covered
with white enameled cloth and over
this a fresh towel can be placed.
Mrs. Edward Burgess.
Mrs. Edward Burgess, wife of the
lamented yacht designer, who revolu
tionized American yacht building, was
a reigning beauty in her girlhood. At
the ball given Duke Alexis of Russia at
New York on the occasion of his visit to
this country, Mrs. Burgess, then Miss
Kitty Sullivant, was the nobleman’s
choice for the opening dance. She was
the daughter of Mr. William Sullivant,
the distinguished scientist, whose father
was one of the early founders of Ohio’s
capital. Her mother was of an old New
York family. Kitty Sullivant had rav
ishing golden hair. She was the original
of Love in Fagnanni's famous painting
of the “Nine Muses” in the Metropolitan
museum at Central park. One of T. B.
Aldrich’s daintiest poems was inspired
by this once famous beauty.
Mrs. Loqua, Universalist preacher, of

Iron in the Sun.
HALF AN HOUR TO OET THE GLOVES OFF.
The opinion is now expressed by what
are considered high scientific authorities
that the earth, and consequently its iron,
at one time formed part of the sun, the
term sun, as used in this case, beirg under
stood to include not only the sur. nucleus,
but also the deep covering of incandescent
vapors which surrounds it, which, for con
venience, is called its atmosphere. The in
vestigations of chemists and scientists with
the spectroscope have revealed in the sun
no fewer than twenty-five distinct ele
ments, all of which are known among
things terrestrial, and there is every reason
to believe that the remaining elements
either existed at a former period or exist
now in the sun.
Among the metals discovered in the
sun’s atmosphere is iron, and in conse
quence of the enormous heat it, along with
the other metals, is in a state of vapor.
Not only is the presence of iron unmistak
ably made out, but its position among
other metals is found to be just where it
might be expected, having respect to grav
ity and the atomic weights which these
metals are known to possess on the earth.
The study of other metals in the sttn, as
revealed by the spectroscope, also goes far
to support this hypothesis of the earth’s
solar system.—New York Telegram.

the daughters were always in debt, and the

were always spent before they were re

far more than the sum provided, so that
the surplus debt accumulated rapidly. It
was a puzzle to me for some time how they
managed to get into such corners. They
bought continually and bought good
things, but never seemed to have anything
fit to wear except their most recent pur

England’s Real Estate Loss.
A mistake which cost the British govern
ment about as much territory as there is in
the state of Rhode Island has come to
light. The error consists of the fact that
the iron monuments at Blaine, and for
many miles east of there, are 360 yards
north of the forty-ninth parallel, which
should be the next boundary line.
Ensign Edward Moale, Jr., of the United
States navy, and connected with the United
States coast survey, tells the story. Three
years ago Ensign Moale was on the United
States surveying schooner which was op
erating in the vicinity of Blaine. The au
thorities at Washington sent out chart»
containing the latitude and longitude,
which are filled in with the result of the
Attached to the schooner was Assistant
S. S. Gilbert, who had charge of the party
working on shore. He sent in a platted re
sult of his work, which was filled into
maps received from headquarters at Wash
ington. When Gilbert’s charts wore plat
ted in these maps it was found that the
boundary monuments at Blaine, and for a
distance east thereof, were 360 yards to the
north of the forty-ninth parallel.
“At first we thought we were mistaken,”
said Ensign Moale, “and carefully went
over the work time and again, only to
verify tho fact that the boundary monu
ments were further north than they should
' “How did the mistake occur?”
“I suppose when the boundary line sur
vey was made in 1853 under the direction
of the joint American and English com
mission that a slight error was made by
the surveyors in northern Montana or the
Rocky mountains. This was trifling at
the start, but kept widening out until it
covers 360 yards wide at the Straits of
"Can the British demand tho territory
“No, they cannot, because the boundary
line between the United States and Can
ada is fixed by these monuments, which
are of iron and are placed every mile from
the Kake of the Woods to the straits of
Georgia. From the Lake of the Woods to
the Atlantic the boundary line is fixed by
the lakes and rivers. This fact has never
beeen officially reported to Washington.”
