The Bright Summer Girl We Shall Hear of No More Till the Warm Weather Cometh Affaln—Meantime 'Twill Amuse You to Cast Your Eye O'er What She Thinks of the Summer Yonne Men. (Copyright. 1901. by American Press Associa tion.] WOMAN’S WORLD IN PARAGRAPHS.' — to He awake nights scheming in her be half, that the million-heir is warned that he takes his life in his hands every time he enters her presence, but it doesn't trouble her. Of course she wants to marry a million-heir, but sho doesn’t want to marry them all and she can easily get along without even one, un less that one wants her. The summer girl's object in life is less matrimony than flirting, to tell the truth, and less flirting than dancing in what sunbeams that shine, and enjoying life while it lasts. 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 ens in her eyes. Marie, where are the 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 the corner. 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 squeaking puppets. 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 fields. 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. Mrs. Ella Brown has received her di ploma as a lawyer from the State Univer sity of Kansas, and will practice in part nership with her husband at Holton. Dr. Martha Robinson is her father’s partner in the dentistry business in Cleveland, and performs the difficult operations on account of her superior HE most beauti ful season of the year in the coun try and by the sea, when the green of the hills begins to change to red and gold, when sunset comes earlier and grows more gor geous every day, when the beach plums are ripening in the yellow sand, and when just to breathe the winey September air makes one rejoice to be alive, is the time se lected by the summer guest to hurry back to town. 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 vey the two loaded baggage wagons that preceded her to the station! There was one trunk for her boots, one for her hats, one for her underclothes, another just for furbelows, another for the umbrellas to match every gown, another for the waists of dresses, and several more long ones with trays to hold the skirts. No R iieta L ouise C hilde . girl at the beach had more trunks than she.

She is draped in a white India silk wrapper, her blond hair is loose on her shoulders and her feet are thrust into high heeled red slippers. There is a look of deep absorp tion on her face and a trace of thought ful melancholy in her blue eyes. Why shouldn't she think? When the baby stares into space that way isn't there al ways some one in the room to say, "What is the dear little thing thinking about, I wonder?” The summer girl rocksslowlv, review ing the past and speculating on the future, as the deft handed Marie folds and packs muslin, silk and lace. 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 Chicago, says, “I believe that men are iu time to give up the profession of the ministry and we women are to be the only ministers.” But we want both. Men must have a fair show in the new world that Is to be created. The southern Presbyterian general as sembly has ruled that women must keep silent in public. The southern Presby terian assembly is away behind the wagon. The members ought to ask their wives at home about this matter. It is a significant Bign of the times that at the convention of the Catholic Total Abstinence Union of America, in Wash ington, Frances Willard and Mrs. La Fetra were received as fraternal dele gates, and Miss Willard, in response to enthusiastic calls, made a speech. But are there no Catholic ladies who can make temperanco speeches? For seventeen years Susanna M. Duncklee was cashier of the Newton (Mass.) savings bank. Then she retired.

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. cap and white canvas shoes brings to the mind of the maiden!

I once spent a winter with a family where the mother and the daughters performed j most of the household service, only calling ; in a woman on wash days and for extra j work. They were in moderately comfortable cir cumstances, and considering their habits and their income, should never have been greatly worried about money matters. But the daughters were always in debt, and the mother, who was a widow, was in a per petual worry about bills. The allowances were always spent before they were re ceived, and the aggregate indebtedness was 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 chases. What became of the many articles which were brought into the house I could never imagine, until one day I overheard a conversation that let light in upon the subject. One of the daughters had been caught in a rainstorm the night before, and her dress was soaked, mud splashed and torn. She had taken it off hurriedly, dropi>ed it on the floor in one corner of the room and for gotten it, sho said, and it was one mass of wrinkles and creases. She gave it a few dashes with tho whisk broom, then in dis gust declared that it was no good and that she would throw it into the heater. Suit ing the action to the word, she bundled up the dress, took it to the cellar and a mo ment later nothing remained of it but ashes. A few days later an out of season hat and some ill fitting but expensive shoes, only half worn, went the same way. When articles were inquired for some ex cuse was made for their non-appearance, and as time went on they were forgotten. The mother was a happy-go-lucky sort of person, who was to an extent ruled by her daughters, and they silenced her remon strances whenever she ventured, and by declaring that the things were perfectly useless, and why not have them out of the way? Articles of furniture requiring only a moment’s repairs were broken up for kindling, tins with a speck of a hole in were given to the ashman, and everything and anything the puttingin order of which took time or pains were disposed of in the same way. But it was into the capacious jaws of the heater that the goods and chat tels of that family went, and wastefulness and extravagance took on a new meaning to me after that winter’s experience with the heater as a consuming element.—New York Ledger. aroes. The food of the people consists chiefly of black or brown rye or barley bread,! soup, milk, coffee, and fish, either fresh or dried. Almost every dwelling possesses its own kiadlur, or wind house, for drying ! purposes, the four sides of which are com posed of laths, set some half inch from one another, to allow free passage to the air. Here, for months together, mutton and whale flesh hang uncooked, and are then considered fit for human food.

The pretty Faroese name of musabrouir. the mouse’s brother, has, moreover, been given to the northern wren (troglodytes borealis, Fischer), not for size and color merely, but because, mouselike, it creeps through the chinks of the kiadlur to feast on the dried meats.—Good Words. -VIA Southern Pacific Route SHASTA LINE.

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 surveys. 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 be.” ' “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 Georgia.” "Can the British demand tho territory back?” “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.” —Cor.
