Dec. 21.—Susanna Cooroft.i in an address, says it is the sacred duty of every woman to become a Venus. " hair, pearly teeth, the i:iis- tening eye," says Miss Cocroft, "are not the signs of woman's vanity. They are the powerful fools that she maj- wield for good, and it is her duty to use them: Beauty is educative. A graceful stature, a beautiful landscape educate and inspire. Why should not the graceful form or the beautiful face do the same? "Nowadays men haven't the time to visit art galleries, but women can bring beauties of the art galleries into the homo. Every woman can be a Venus. You can't change bone, to he sure, but you can change the mold of the flesh to suit yourselves." SUSPENDS COURT FOR FUNERAL.
