Should Help One Another.
[Copyright, 1891, by American Press Associa
The modern changes in the ways of
women have opened to them a heretofore
unsuspected delight, which gives fresh
attractions to both work and play—the
pleasure of social life among themselves.
So greatly indeed have customs modi
fied within a few years that I think it Is
safe to say at the present moment that
women’s most heartily enjoyed social
gatherings are with one another.
Thia is quite as it should be too. We
know that onr brothers like best some
times to be without us; it is exceedingly
desirable that we should do the same.
The charm of being together is bright
ened by each sex having its own separate
good times, and the self respect result
ing from independence—even in the
matter of social intercourse—is a quality
well worth cultivating. Moreover, is it
not something to live down one more of
the old taunts wont to be flung at ue
that we can never enjoy ourselves alone:
In no way that I have seen do
women of the cities have better times
than in their daylight gatherings, at
hours when, as a rule, every man is ab
sorbed in study, office or place of busi
ness. The 5 o’clock tea, with its fra
grant and cheering cup, its pleasing ef
fect of lovely rooms, soft lights, fresh
flowers and tea gowns, which are in
themselves pictures, is an occasion alto
gether delightful and eminently woman
ly. The reception also, with its con
stant succession of guests for two or
three hours, where one may meet her
friends and enjoy all the pleasure with
none of the fatigue and stupidity of a
round of calls, is of the same order.
Most delightful, however, of the mod
ern woman’s paths of pleasantness io
that known as the “ladies’ luncheon.”
The person who has never taken part in
one of those delectable entertainments
.does not suspect what she has missed,
neither can she imagine the good times
a party of ladies have over so matter of
fact a thing as a luncheon. Nor does its
fascination depend upon its size. It
may be a private affair, with no more
than six guests, or—with equal satisfac
tion—it may be a woman's club luncheon
with 300. It is sure in either case to be
lively, sparkling with brilliant speech
and witty repartee. It is sure likewise
to present an attractive picture, with
dainty dress, beautiful tables and lavish
flowers. It is more homogeneous than a
mixed assembly. In fact, there is an
enthusiasm, a sympathy and magnetism
about a woman's gathering that makes
it truly inspiring.
If an entertainment of this sort is
large all sorts of tastes may enjoy it; but
if it is a small party, in a private house,
the company should be carefully selected,
for the conversation will be general,
and what would please literary and
artistic persons would bore those who
care only for society, and vice versa. The
choicest company is one composed of
women of congenial tastes. For ex
ample, at a luncheon in New York last
winter every guest was a writer, either
editor, magazine contributor, author or
journalist of high rank. All were at
home in the world of letters, all appre
ciated the same points and had some
thing to say on them. Their wits were
keen and bright from constant use, and
I doubt if any one present on that felici
tous occasion ever spent a more enjoyable
At another private luncheon in the
same season the guests were composed
of the editors and contributors of a cer
tain publication. They indulged in the
luxury of “talking shop” to their hearts’
content, for “shop” was a matter of vital
interest to all of them and there was no
uninterested person to be bored by it.
The favors and decorations were delight
fully “shoppy,” and even the ice cream
took the form of dainty booklets with an
appropriate qnotation across the open
pages. That was another altogether in
The changed ways that have been con
sidered aro but steps toward the grand
portal which now looms up before
us. Beyond this portal, if we have but
the courage to enter, many thinkers
believe we shall find the solution of our
more serious domestic problems.
The word over that promising door
way is co-operation, and the sooner we
learn to work well and harmoniously to
gether, the sooner we learn self reliance
and self respect, the sooner we recog:
nize that woman—and she alone—can
settle woman's problems, the more
speedily shall we be ready to adopt that
as our watchword, and try honestly and
fairly to see if the “universal sisterhood”
be not as potent to advance us heaven
ward as the “universal brotherhood” is
to advance the race.
The former, indeed, is a part and an
indispensable part of the latter, and
little do we realizo the importance of
our work in the matter. Man may do
and die in the effort, but—believe it or
not, as he may choose—ho cannot ad
vance far nntil woman keeps step with
him, and woman alone can train herself
to walk beside her brother in the grand
march of the race. This is a truth we
shall do well to ponder. Everything is
helping us—clnlis, associations, leagues,
societies and all the rest, are training
and developing us with wonderful ra
pidity. Our domestic problems! How
small they will appear when we shall
have passed that portal and looked back
upon them! Says Emerson:

Thus will it be when we take into our
hearts that divine word “love,” which is
the foundation rock of co-operation, as
of every other truly good thing. We
lunst love our fellows, and we should
begin by loving the woman next to ns,
hot with the narrow love that poets sing
and novelists picture, but with that
broader love which is charity, which
shows itself in respect for others, in tol
eration and in justice. I do not mean
that we should take the woman next to
us—our servant probal ly—for a bosom
friend or a daily companion,but we should
recognize her sisterhood, respect her in
dividuality and endeavor to give her,
as well as ourselves, a pleasant and
happy life. That is the beginning, and
that also, dear sisters, is the end. When
we have learned that we have learned all.

MISS VINNIE HALL.
The recent discussion as to whether ocean
liners should carry cotton as well as pas
sengers, and at the same time, has brought
out another fact. It is that they carry
other kinds of freight that make the danger
of fire just as great as from cotton. A per
son who knows something of such matters
states that just at present there are being
made large importations of French silk
that are especially dangerous as freight.
“At present importers here,” the gentle
man said, “are receiving large consign
ments of a heavy dyed silk known as
French twist. The French manufacturers
do not spare the dye on these goods, for it
adds to their weight. In this dye chemi
cals of a peculiar kind are used, and it is
this fact that makes this silk dangerous

Al vino Alaniz, a Mexican ranchman of

and camped at night by a little creek that
runs through a tangle of mesquite. He.
tethered his horse, cooked his supper, and
was squatted by the fire smoking the in
evitable cigarette when a mad coyote
sprang upon him from the dark.
The little beast, with every hair standing
on end and his jaws dropping foam, struck
him full in the face and fastened its teeth
in his nose. The animal bore Alaniz back
ward and he sprawled at full length. He
endeavored to defend himself with his
hands, but to no avail. The coyote snap
ped his tcctli through the skin in a half
dozen places, and the face of the man was
covered with blood. As he struggled to
his feet, frenzied with terror, his assailant
disappeared. The ranchman reached Rio

will probably die of hydrophobia.

The Atmosphere and Mainsprings.
“Your mainspring is broke,” was the
positive declaration of a jeweler to a young
man as he entered and walked up to the
counter, meanwhile probing for his watch.
The yonng man hadn’t said a word, so It
is easy to imagine that he was astonished
at having the cause of his being there thus
promptly and positively foretold.
“How did you guess It f” he asked when
he recovered from his amazement “Didn’t
guess it; I knew it,” was the jeweler’s re
ply—“that is, I could almost have sworn
to it when I saw you feeling for your
watch. I guessed then that something
was the matter with that article, and hav
ing guessed that I was ready to bet twen
ty-five dollars to one dollar that it was the
mainspring that was broke, and I’ll tell
you why: There’s a certain time of the
year when if I have two or three persons
come to me with broken mainsprings I
can make up my mind that I’ll have twenty
or thirty more of the same kind of custom
ers within a very short time.
“Now, It’s just a week and a day ago
that a man camo to have a job of this kind
done, and up to today I’ve had no less than
twenty mainsprings to put in. They break
voluntarily; atmospheric condition has
something to do with it. Now, I’ll put a
new spring in your watch which I guaran
tee for a year. It ni.ly last two or three
years, and, again, it may not last two days,
one day, or an hour. Y’ou Can’t tell;
they're liable to break any time, no matter
of how good quality they are. I’ve had
new springs break right after I have put
them in.”—Buffalo Express.

The Supply of W halebone.
About 200,000 pounds of whalebone were
secured from the Atlantic catch of whales
during 1890, and less than that amount was
secured from the P.xiific waters. Fine
whalebone is worth its weight in silver,
and only the wealthy woman can afford to
use it. The ordinary principles cf produc
tion and trade arc overturned as regards
whalebone. Modern appliances and im
provements appear to have decreased rather
than to have enlarged the amount of the
product. The price of whalebone fluctuates
worse than the stock market, owing to the
fact that it is impossible to calculate upon
the amount of a season’s catch until the
bone has actually’ been extracted.
There are only seven manufacturers in
this country, according to the latest report
—five in New York and two in Boston.
They pay $10,000 for a ton of raw material,
and split it up and prepare it for market.
Quantities are used in the silk mills where
ribbon is manufactured. It is used there
for the edge of the ribbon in weaving.

Ever since the establishment of the first paper on
the bay of San Francisco, which we believe was
the “Alta,” removed from Monterey in 1849; the
inhabitants of the Coast generally have been inter
ested in the news from San Francisco. The “Alta,”
like many other pioneers of’49,has succumbed to
the inevitable and gone over to the great majority,
and, like other pioneers, has been succeeded by
younger generations. <The “Examiner” has
taken perhaps the most prominent place in the
newspaper field of late years, and its Weekly
edition is very generally taken by those who
want an interesting and reliable paper published
at “ The Bay.” Everyone is familiar with
the Premium Offers made by Mr. Hearst, the
“Examiner’s” enterprising publisher, and it is
only necessary to say that this year the aggregate
value of the premiums—of which there are 5,000—
is $135,000, which are distributed among all the
subscribers to the paper. In addition to these pre
miums, which range in value from 50 cents to
$7,500, every subscriber receives one of the four
great premium pictures, which will be mailed to
him in a tube direct from the “ Examiner” office
as soon as the subscription is received:
" Tie Retreat from Moscow," by Melssoilcr.
"The Roman Chariot Race,” by A. Wasner.
