WOMEH OF WABHIKQTOiT. Mrs. John J. In rails Talks Entertainingly of Their Foe lal Duties. Special Correspondence of Sunday PosT-DisriiTCH. Atchison, Kan., Feb. 1. Mrs. Ingalls and the family of the noted ex-Senator are living hero very quietly this winter. Although they seem to enjoy the rest it Is very probable that they miss the life and gaiety of Washington, Your correspondent had a long chat with Mrs. Ingalls yesterday in which ste epole frequently of the capital. I never found social duties there arduous by any means, she salii. "Social life in Washington Is Jus t what one sees fit to make It. A woman may put ln all of her time looking after social matters, but there is nothing obligatory about it, and If ber duties finally become arduous, and she wears herseif out, it Is her own fault. "While first calls are made accorfllnp to rank, there is no absolute law requiring the wife of a member to call upon every one, or return every call, or even go Into society nt all. She can study her own pleasure In ra-gard to this, and reserve the right to select her own acquaintances, and her action will not be criticised adversely. Many women upon their advent Into Washington society search the official directory and imagine that they must go through the entire list. This Is a mistake too often made. But thoy learn by experience how unnecessary this Is, unl after a few years they are wiser. Then so- nlAtv to ttiosn a-hn rt-rw 1- 4 a,.iiv,!v pleasant. At least I have found it so. " 'Are there no women m W as binpton society whose real duties might be considered arduous?" asked the reporter. "No ono who enters society can escape Its obligations, but the wife of the speaker lun perhaps the largest visiting 11st, and it is considered her duty and should be her pleasure to return all calls. The Speaker naturally desires the friendship of the members of the House and the acquaintance of their families. In this his wife can greatly assist him. Mrs. Carlisle was a most valuable aid to ber husband, making friends on every id entirely regardless of party or politics. The wife of tbe Speaker Is third in rank, stand-inn next to the wife of the Vice-President" "Does being the wife of a Congressman frtve a woman any social standing in Waih-ngton?". "No, but it does not debar ber. Soma of the most popular leaders of Washington society are wives of Congressmen. Among them are Mrs. Hltt of Illinois. Mrs. Boutelle of Maine, Mrs. Julia O. Burrows of Michigan, Mrs. McCreary and Mrs. Breckinridge of Kentucky, Mrs. Lodge ot Massachusetts and Mrs. liutterworth of Ohio." "Who, in your opinion, Is the most popular woman ln Washington?' "Mrs. John A. Logan. She Is a charming woman and sought after by everyone. Speaking of Mrs. Logan, you remember the story that she and George 8. Lemmon, the rension attorney, were to be married? Well, received a letter from her at the time the story was circulated, in which ; she Rimed that she regarded Mr. Lemmon as the com panion of her son-in-law and dfrinnilnfiha family, but that her heart was burled ln the grave witn uen. lxKan. and she would never marry again. . "Tne wife Of Senator Morrill l nlnn very much beloved. There is an individual chnrm about ber that attracts everybody. Mrs. Morrill is a genuine typo of Mew England womanhood, kind, gentle and courteous. th has been ln Washington society for mors than thirty years, and is loved and revered by all who have ever seen her. She Is now past 70, and Is not as active In society s formerly. Miss Swan, ber sister, returns the most or ner calls. Mrs. Eucene Hale, iiauiiu- ter of Zacharlan Chandler, and Mrs. White, unuguier oi senator sawyer, are cnaronns women and popular hostesses." "Is Mrs. Blaine a favorite?" '8ho Is with those who know ber well. Ths newspapers have too often represented her In an unjust manner, and it Is evident that many correspondents who have described het have not even met her. She possesses ureal hauteur of manner, which is a barrier to strangers, but those who know her Intimately are her most devoted admirers." "Who is considejed tue most beautiful woman in Washington?" "This is a difficult question to answer, Mrs. Dolph of Oregon and .Mrs. oates of Alabama both represent lovely types. ' Does Lent close ail festivities?' "No indeed. The most pleasant affairs ol : drawn and tho shutters closed, and the outside world imagines that all is quiet within. It is ln Lent that the rormallty of official Ills Is thrown ofr, and Intimate friends mingle together as they would at home. Private parties are as much tbe rage during I-eot s public receptions and other events a u ring tl regular season, which begins Jan. 1." "A Poet in Poetic SHap. From the Baa Frsaelsee Ci.ll.

Tbo Cabinet ladles have many new toilets this season. Mrs. Morton's gowns are always noted and she probably spends as much on her clothes as any woman la Washington. A great variety of magnificent gowns were sent to her from London and Paris last fall, and one Of the most simple and elegant of these is a princess gown of old-rose brocade, the figures upon which form graceful curves extending downward to a convergent point. The bodice Is cut high and ailed m at the neck with a vest-shaped piece, finished with a simple round collar fastened at the back.- Thl. Araaa ha Inhff lnA.fltt in If SleeVeS. aiirVittv t th Ktmniders. and the whole Is trimmed with deep crystal-beaded rlnge of the same delicate oia-rose pin. Miss Rusk, the daughter of the Secretary Of Agriculture, always takes an active part ln assisting her mother upon the occasion of puulic receptions, ana ner aresses m Bh has this vear a number of beautiful toilets from Worth's, and among her even ing dresses a tasteful gown is ot wnite cmnou with tiny Sprays of lavender flowers, the neck cut low and trimmed with a deep ruffle of embroidery and ornamented with lavender bows of velvet ribbon. It has a deml-train, and she has to go with it on such occasions as big receptions a long, tight-fitting cloak of mauve-colored silk with full vest ot white chiffon. One of her carriage gowns Is of tan-colored 'satin, trimmed with dark blue velvet, the edge of the plain skirt being cut ln points and bordered with sable. The f ull.high sleeves of the tlght-flttlng coat are a combination 6f velvet and brocade, and a high velvet collar and a stylish jet hat and feathers complete the costume. Miss Rusk has also a pretty gown ot dancing length of canary Color and white striped satin. A deep frill of chiffon edges the round neck and forms the short Sleeves. Another gown Is of rose-pink embroidered chiffon over which is worn a Louis XV. coat of pink brocade with a ruffle of chiffon, forming a most stunning effect. Miss Minnie Wanamaker is a tall, graceful blonde, Who has the most natural, pleasing manners. She spent last summer abroad In Miss Jlvsk. company with her mother and sister, and upon ner return brought with her several trunks filled with handsome gowns for the coming season. Let me tell you about a few of these. There is a rich glace silk of a delt- cate pink with draoerles of moussellne de sole. A broad band of white satin ribbon forms a belt, with a bis bow at the nnclc and the round-cut neck is trimmed with a deep ruffle of chiffon, which forms a sleeve effect, and the left shoulder is ornamented with a bunch of violets ; another bunch of the same flowers being fastened on the corsage. Another dress is a rich silk of yellow and white, striped with moussellne-de-sole draperies.. This Is ornamented with blue velvet rosettes on breast and shoulder, and a large one Is fastened on the belt at the back of the waist, the bell-shaped skirt forming a deml-traln. Mrs. Wanamaker seldom If ever deviates from her acknowledged preference for lavender and grays, most of her gowns being each season selected from the varying tints. She wore on New Year's Day a hello-trope silk with elgzag stripes of white elaborately trimmed with ecru lace, which extended down both sides of tho back to the end of the short train. The sleeves of the dress were high on the shoulder and a girdle ot gold embroidery was fastened In front, the 'ace ornamenting the opening at the neck and brought down into a point at the belt. Another good dresser amonx our Cabinet ladies is the wife of the Secretary of tbe Treasury. Her gowns are all elegant, and one I wish specially to mention. It is a wine-colored velvet, princess train, with front of heliotrope brocade, a fall of chiffon of tho sama shade extended down the front and the the neck filled ln with lace. This makes a peautlful effect, as does also one ot Miss Fos-?7' wh1ch 1 of siivr-gray Ottoman, trimmed in beaded crystal fringe.

A stylish walking hat Is the one represented ln the cut, a soft-crowned felt trimmed with brown velvet. Two quills,-brown and gold, are perched jauntily ln front and the brown velvet side Is outlined with gilt cord. The Easter is a bewitching: little bonnet. A band of forget-me-nots rests upon the hair, above which Is a fluted flounce of black velvet. The crown has the Tarn O'Shanter effect and is a forget-me-not blue crepe, a cluster of black jets finish the back, an aigrette of blue feathers studded with jets, waves gracefully just above the soft crown, and blue velvet strings tie beneath the chin. A dainty hat to be worn at an afternoon re- kept, and it Is more than probable that the list will be given to the puDiic wnen it Becomes sufficiently long to be Imposing. The Eebecca Hospital Is one of the most fle- serving charities ever started ln St. Louis. The aim of the proposed Institution is to afford the rest, the quiet, the seclusion, and proper surroundings for poor sick women, which none of the public institutions of the city arroras. ane lacues wno are at xne nsaa of the project rant high among The philanthropic workers of the city, and their names guarantee success to the enterprise.

Some of them are affiliated with the Alliance, others are followers of Edward Bellamy and a few are free lances, renowned for their advocacy of female suffrage, temperance and reform.

SHE CAN SELECT IT WITHOUT THE LEAST TSOXTBLE IF SHE EE AD 8 THIS. Written far the ScsDATf Post-Dispatch. Have you ever watched a woman buying her best new bonnet? To no other act does she give such careful consideration. Her face Is apt to wear a wistful yet hopeful expression as she enters the store, The particular kind of hat she wants was determined coming down town on the elevated train. It must be the very latest style, must blend GRANDDAUGHTERS. with every she wants one of her dresses and of course It bewltchlngly becoming. THTs graphic description Is given the saleswoman. who comes before her customer with a smiling countenance. Every hat ln the store receives a minute inspection. A dozeti or so are selected as just too sweet." These are held in difierent position, given enthusiastic little love taps and at last each one In succession Is allowed to rest upon my lady's wavy locks. ! Then the trouble begins. Some are either too much bent up ln the front or too much cent down in the back. The one which Is just the right shape Is trimmed outrageously and the one whose trimming Is in perfect harmony with my lady's style of beauty "Is something dreadful" la shape. The front effect may just suit, when the mirror reveals a glimpse of the side ot the bonnet. This seals Its doom. Hours pass. At last a dainty bonnet comes to view. It is just the thing until it Is sent home. - . Now, here are some bonnets and hats, fresh from Paris and the creative brain of Vlrot. They cannot fall to "please and Interest." The bonnet of 93 is what every woman would pronounce "a little dream." Resting close to the hair is a band of black ostrich feather trimming. Another band outlines ft i K . - nJ wMfT0,f ln bonnet, the foundation of nJ 11 hi-1??10 free5 crP "ded with black nail heads. Black velvet ribbons arranged witn tnem t a feathery pom pon of green trimmed with violet and dark pdrple feath. ers. Velvet heartease rests gracefully upon the crown purple veLvet tie strings lined with violet silk complete the effect. Tbe large cut shows an all black bat which will be seen on every side in a month or two. It is of fine black bendabie chip, which flops with the most becoming shapes of Its own accord. The crown Is entirely of black feathers, tips being used and clustered close- ly together. The golden-haired girl looks a picture as one gets a glimpse of her laughing face underneath this new bat, but the worst may as well be told at once. . She Is going to wear it to the theater I Mr. Besant, whom no man or woman could ever accuse of outraging any one's sense of decency in his books, tells a story of a lady who wrote remonstrating with him for having suffered a sailor to kiss a girl in a summer-house In tn of hi books. "I thought, wrote the Indignant moralist, "that your books were safe reading for my daughter.

This school, the most recently established of the three Industrial schools of the Queen's Daughters, Is, owing to the untiring efforts ana ability of the following ladles and a few other assistants, one of the most promising and satisfactory: MIssDoan, Directress; Mrs. Fred Volmer, Assistant Directress; Mrs J. V. Revburn, Treasurer; Mrs. KUllan, Sec-etary. The teachers are Mrs. Alex. Mast-brook, Mrs. J. L. Cumminers, Mrs. Zallle Mrs. Duan. Miss Donelly, Miss Taylor and Miss Crowley. Mrs. P. J. Toomet. For and About Women. A recent number of the Queen gives a conversation alleged to have occurred between the Countess Leo Tolstoi and Miss Isabella Hapgood of New York. The Countess, as is well known, does not share the paradoxical Ideals of her husband. "All my husband's disciples," said she frankly to the New York woman, "are small, blonde, sickly and bomoly," and she went on to say that they drift into Idiocy by following the Count's teachings. Lady Colin Campbell is admittedly the most brilliant woman Journalist In London, and in the role of a modern crusader one might almost say a "shrieking sister." as she appears in the January number of the National Jlecicw she Is more brilliant than ever. Her "shriek" is directed aaratnst "Domestic Decorations," and the article under this head Is full of smart satire at the expense of the owner of the average modern drawing-room. Of this type she says: When you can no longer turn around in her drawing-rooms without Jeopardizing a spin-die-shanked table or coming into violent contact with a screen; when you cannot cross the room without ducking your head to avoid a flight ot Cottonwood storks that are suspended from the celling, and when you cannot enter the room without being cauKht in the entangles of a "bead" curtain thn the modern hostess is proud and happy, feeling that she has done her duty by her house and her generation. - And then Lady Colin gives an excellent recipe, as follows: The live large screens, as many sofas, and a like number of palms. Surround each palm and sofa with a screen so as to cut off as much as possible all communication with the outer world represented by the rest of the room. Drape the screens with as many different pieces of "Liberty" silk as they can conveniently carry, and tie up the pots of each palm, and in some cases Its stem na well, with "Liberty" scarfs. Pin as many unseemly lnsocts in tbe folds of the draperies as you can. Hang a tambourine from one of the . palm leaves, sprinkle photographs wnerevor you can ana men "serve up" ana await results. 41 MM Ik I I i A i A tjv, .
