RFND FOR OUR BOOKS CONTAINING it nil 8 linn ADDRESSES OF in tbe present day zeal to reform Trrtbing and everybody a multitri hands would," were' it be only too ready to reform wom; but-Iortunatly tfaiv is beyond them. Tbe ubiquitous New York reporter has dis- covered that Emma Abbott, during heratest-sojourn in the metropolis, gave -upfmost'ol her time to face massage rfitorintbe -freshness of her once lovely and still healthy and wholesome According tbe metropolitan chronicler. Miss Abbott is having' her maid scientifically instructed in the art. She (the maid) goes every morning to the beauty shop and gets the necessary practice on the faces of society wnmentunder the eye of tbe professional complexion maker. The tuition pays for instruction and a case of creams, lotions, balms, bloom of youth for raising the eyes, warming tbe Hps and emphasizing the ears, with blue 'pencil; for veining the temples and a couple of eyelash combs.

On the subject of -complexion Miss Abbott is particularly' interesting. Her-': ruso' de guerre, as she calls it, for making a good face is a quart of hot water, a fruit breakfast and a iive-miie walk in the To make it brisk she starts out with an insufficiency of clothing for the weather, and the speed necessary, for bodily comfort gives the sparkle to her eyes and the brightness to her face that she'de-sirc. As an all round beautifier. and preservative of the skm she considers glycerine without a comparison. She buys the oily stuff by the gallon, dilutes it with filtered water and uses it as a bath for her face, neck, arms and shoulders.

Her flesh is soft, her skin as smooth as satin. SOLE (--MTCrSIC ECOTJSES AfPUTV 23 MONROE AVENUE, DETROIT.

"Women live longer than men and do not have so shave. The best seat is given them in church, and when they enter a car, after five minutes1 stroll on a fashionable promenade, men woo have been on their feet till day give their seat to the lovely creatures.

"Who gets the sweetest coffee, the hottest roils, the teuderest slice from the roast beef? "Woman. "Who coes to all the plays and operas? Woman. Who pays for theticketii Man. Who dresses fii silks, velvets and 'laces? lovely woman. Who dresses in coarse irarmeuts, agly and shapeiess? Man, wretched' man! Who lives in soft and luxurious idleness? Woman.

Who works bard and long? Man. He, unfortunate rascal, spends eight or ten hours every day beading over a desk, or rolling barrels, or ten pins, or counting out or buying or selling stocks, or editing papers, or reading them, or playing billiards. While she, arrayed more brilliantly than Solomon in all his glory, jroes forth to "shop," to 'see the latest fashions, to spend her husband's money, or to visit, to gossip, to promenade, to flirt, or to go to the library, or, if she wishes to stay at home, she reclines on a sofa, in th-T softest of wrappers and reads the last novel. Oh! who would not ba a woman! The women of Montevideo evidently think that life would not be worth living if they were compelled to live outside the pale of fashion. An observant traveler informs us that they wear short dresses in the streets, tons affording a liberal display of small and high-hseled French boots, with hats but without wraps; Tbe extreme of fashion is apparent in the.

bustle, accompanied -with, great-puffs calculated to make a poor little Jap girl die of envy. Our traveler declares he has frequently seen the bustle projecting quite two feet front tne body and wondered wbyjrthey were not utilized as Da reel-carriers. Bat then every country has its own standard of taste and fashion. In Valparaiso and Santiago it is the spray of eathers and top-knot of artificial vegetation which marks the best society; in Montevideo it 'is the bustle, which, by its greater' or superficial dis-tinguisbes the patrician from the- plebeian. The graceful lace mantilla, With the dignified black" embroidered crepe or silk shawl, is all unknown, tha most extravagant -French fashions having taken its place.

The men show no better taste. Just at this period it is a question whether they are endeavoring to trim their shoes or their beards to the sharpest point. A well-traveied Englishman, who has worn off his insular prejudice for everything. 'uu-English," was lately asked what was the most characteristic thing he found in American life, ''The girl-bachelors," he said. "There are no spinsters here, as we call them in Eug-eland.

The unmarried women-in America is a type altogether unique. She has all the independence of a and still keeps every essential trait of the best woman. She thinks and plans and executes for herself, and she does not seem to make mistakes. The girl-bachelor often has her own home and she values it exactly as she would if she were married. The is always gracious and companionable, but never oversteps the bounds of her dignity.

Oh. the bachelor-girl is the most wonderful thing America has yet produced, and she is altogether charming." Eugene Field, on the other hand (and side), writes that in England one sees very few tastefully dressed women. The London ladies, in particular, wear costly toilets of an evening, but tbey have an appearance as if their fine. things had been shot on to to them out of a cannon. They display their jewels with a generosity that is simply vulgar.

It is not unusual to see ladies at the theater with four or five diamond brooches up and down the front of their bodices. As a class the barmaids are splendid looking creatures. Among the house servants, too, fine specimens of physical beauty are frequently to be met with, but the women of tbe upper classes are disappointing in appearance, and in movement tkey are, contrary to tradition, awkward; the Euglish woman either swaggers or shuffles. Yet the English women are said to be singularly robust. The women upon whom age, even an age in the neighborhood of 30.

is beginning to set its seal, is wise to wear ties on her bonnet or hat, because they wiil do much to make her look younger aud will conceal from the public that first sign that she has passed her 2iith birthday the wrinkles that come behind the ears and frequently extend along tbe throat. Even narrow velvet ribbons will hide these, and the woman who doesn't take advantage of their charitable offices announces that she has no idea of the practical use of dress. We may as well confess that woman can't run that is to say, despite tbe fact that there was once a lightning-fcoted Atlanta, running is not woman's forte. She can swim, she can dance, she can ride: ail these she can do admirably and with ease to herself. But to run ature most surely did not construct her.

Sb-j can do if after a fashion, just as tbe domestic ben will or. occasions make shift to flv: but movement is constrained and awkward may we say it without disrespect? a kind of precipitate waddle with neither gracs, fitness nor dignity.
