J.Bdmn-r.tJoket u«iot, L. M. * W. MRS. FLOBA HATS, tions were very freely signed, but whe the matter of appointment came before the council the question of whether a woman could legally hold the office came up. It was argued by some that she could not and that if the city appointed her clerk all transactions in which the clerk was a party would be illegal and not binding. Attorney General Ketcbam was con suited, and after thoroughly examining the law he found that, while there wa no statute covering the case, there was none which ruled against women holding offices of this nature. Upon this information the appointment was made, and she was placed in charge of tbe office. Those who have beau watching her closely say that .she has taken hold in a businesslike manner and shows evidence of proving to be one of the most efficient officers the corporation has ever bad. She writes a good hand and is methodical. She has a general knowledge of town and city government and Indiana laws applying to that part of the work which falls to her. Mrs. Hays is a charming little lady, scarcely over 25, and is a general favorite. She is accomplished and capable of gracing the drawing room as well as the city clerk's office. She is decidedly feminine in all of her tastes, but in her office work those little oddities which men call "feminine inconsistency" are entirely missing.—Cincinnati Enquirer. Mothen Not Made by Kale. It is almost impossible for the reader of modern newspapers not to fear that women are taking themselves altogether too seriously. Somewhere in almost every issue we arc prayed by some fervent sister to "train ourselves for motherhood." Women have evidently been graduated from the training school for wifehood which was recommended a few years ago, or else the zealous promoters of conjugal happiness have at last despaired of making them so train. "Why in the name of common sense should women train to be wives and mothers any more than men should train to be husbands and fathers? Surely it is not good for girls to feel, jnst ill a general way aud with no marriage in sight, that it is their special duty to have their lamps trimmed arid burning, for the bridegroom is possibly just around the corner. Even the affianced girl would bo robbed of much of the sweetness and poetry of life if she set herself as soon as the engagement ring was-fairly fitted to her finger to taka a course in infant nursing and kindergarten. One is reminded of the child's soug in which a little girl asks a flower wh;;: sha must do to be as sweat as a red, rto rose. And the flower replies: To bo as sweet as a rod, red. rose A little girl like you Jnst grows and grort-u -and ijroivsaid grow* And that's what she mu=1> do. This would be more wholesome advice for girls to listen to than most oJ the offhand rambliug now in vogue. "Women need growth i:n all direction? more than special training for motherhood.' Sound bodily grovrth, not with „ view to special functions, but that tbe. 1 mav become excellent specimens of thoiv race. Sound meural dovelopiueut: uoi the special training of cook ing schoo: and kindergarten so much as the rneuta! discipline which develops large syiupa thies, noble aspirations and a love ui justice and truth. Most women of riuu tvpe are able to turn tbe wheels of domestic machinery very snmothly iu- deed, but incidentally and without apparent effort. The woman who specialized for the duties marriage usually entails would be dangerously sure of herself, inclined to be narrow and to be bound unchangeably to the rules which she hud learned. This lack of pliability could not make for open mindedness. Humanity is greater even than wifehood or motherhood, and there is no fear that the sue cessful human being vrill be a success if called upon to exeircise these functions. The world is aot so much iu need of small minded women trained for child bearing and rearing as of large minded women fitted for patient service in any position to which life may call them. Many cif the most successful moth(ars have hud no training whatever for the state oi'. motherhood, but were so ennobled by a love of the higher things of life that to be a good mother •was as natural us to breathe. Let girls do away with tbe thought that marriage and motherhood are purposes to be attained by "preparation, application and perseverance." Bather let them regard as their life purpose the attainment of larger attitude toward life, considering true marriage and motherhood as indeed life's choicest, rarest blessings, but i blessings which, alas, must often be j humbly, patiently renounced.—£. 3. G. iu Chicago JPost. For a Voting Baby. "For a young baby in cold weather two garments are needed between the undershirt and the dress," writes Prances Fisher Wood in an admirable little volume entitled "Infancy and Childhood." "These should be made, one of Jaeger white stockinet and the other of silk warped flannel. Neither one should be more than long enough to cover the feet. These materials are so beautiful that they will require no embroidery or trimming. Simple featberstitching will bo sufficient to render both garments fit for a princess, and yet they will not cost as much and will be much more durable tban the usual long, heavily embroidered flannel skirt and the longer, much betrimmed abomination called an overskirt. Silk warped flaunel skirts and white china silk dresses have an extravagant sound and undoubtedly seem quite beyond the purse of many who yet really spend double the amount that would be needed to purcha.se these articles on garments that Eire at once inartistic and unhealthful. "The layette usually provided fora child is a barbarism. It is elaborate, yet not beautiful; expensive, but not useful; troublesome to make and keep in repair, yea; not comfortable for the wearer. "Whiiie china silk costs from 50 cents to $1 a yard. The dress, like the flannel undergarments, may be made entirely plain, and should not be more than 40 inches long. The expense of such a dress is not more than half that of the ordinary hideous, overembroid ered gown, which is beyond home skill to make or home talent to launder." Women Who Try Business. If a woman is ever to retain her present position m tbe business world, she must look to it that she makes her value felt. She has many advantages; she is punctual, painstaking, patient of monotony, amenable to discipline, ready and willing—indeed she errs as a rule rather from excess of zeal than from its defect—but she has two things to learn —first, that her health is her only capital and, secondly, that to rise above mediocrity it is necessary to think for yourself. For this last shortconiiDg her educators have much to answer for, but it cannot be too clearly understood thac in the struggle for existence there is no room for the typist who has not at any rate the intelligence of the average compositor nor for the secretary who for gets to post important letters, or incloses the letter to "Dear Mr. A." in the envelope addressed to "Mrs. B." It is lapses of this sort which mar at present go much of women's work, and to which apparently all but the very few are so singularly liable, largely, I fancy, because they have been studiously taught to leave out of account physiological facts. What wonder, then, if they insist upon iguoring the most elementary laws of health and show a tendency to look upon eating aud drinking as a criminal form of self indulgence? I don't say that; a proper supply of blood to the arain would free the world of folly, but .t would be at least worth trying whether more meat and the disappearance of all prejudices against- sofas would not go a long way toward securing that desirable consummation. — Fortnightly Review. \Vomrn Trc.innry Clerks. United States Treasurer Roberts is saving constructeil in tbo corridor of the treasury building, just outside his office door, a large wall case, in which will be exhibited specimens of the remarkable skill of treasury clerks iu restoring' mutilated paper currency. One of the several show places in tbe )ig building where Uude Sam's financial operations are carried on is the basement floor room where the clerks, mostly women, are employed in piecing together greenbacks sent in for redemption, many of which are apparently be- roild all hope of identification. In the case will be arranged .specimens of the most skillful and wonderful work of the women who receive the torn and tattered pieces of paper that may have n chewed by rats or passed through a coffee grinder and restore them to their original condition. It seems impossible that human hands can do such work, )ut it is hardly an exaggeration ro say hat bills so torn that they could be jassed through a coarse sieve have been made whole again. The women most expert in the work are JIxs. L. E. Brown and Mrs. Lydia iosenberg, and the specimens of their skill that will be placed in Treasurer loberts' exhibit case will indeed aston- sh the natives. One bill that was torn into 500 pieces was put; into its original shape with uot a scrap of the paper missing. Another that was burned almost to ashes and shrank by the heat was restored, piece by piece, until it ap- leared a perfect half size reproduction of the original now. —Boston Transcript. Dr. Martha Hnghes Cannon. Dr. .Martha Hughes Cannon is famous as tbe first woman who was ever sent o a state senate to represent the citizens if a commonwealth. She has served two •ears in the legislature of Utah and has wo years more yee before her. Dr. Cannon is a woman with*a history, and striking one. Prior EO her marriage she studied medicine under physicians in Salt Lake City, then went to Ann Arbor, where she graduated in 1880, and afterward entered the University of Pennsylvania. Going from Ann Arbor admitted her at Philadelphia, where she got the degree of B. S. One hundred and twenty-five men started in the auxiliary course with Dr. Cannon, but only five of these and herself graduated. This was in 1SS2. On her return to Salt Lake City Dr. Canuon became a resident physician in the Deseret hospital, which position she held for three years, having outsid practice as well. At the close of tha period she became the sixth wife o Mr. Angus if. Cannon. Dr. Cannon' busband is president of the high pries council, which is tbe ecclesiastical cour of jurisdiction. President Cannon, be sides being a church functionary, is a business man, having a. large mining interest. In the political campaign fo state senator President; Cannon ran against his wife, Dr. .Martha Hughe Cannon, and was defeated, as all th world knows. She represented the sil ver Democracy and received a handsome majority of votes.—Woman's Journal. The Rage For Brass. One has evidently got around again to the ago of brass, for every seconc woman in society is collecting objects small and large, made Oi' this handsome metal, says Demorest's Family Mag azine. Brass beds, andirons, fenders and kettles by no means satisfy the fashionable craving for iirticles made o: this most ornamental of materials. Long mirrors for the stately new houses are now set in brazen frames 01 most elaborate design, panels of brass line the walls of the dining rooms, vases large and small are made of tbe metal, and, as if extravagance must burst all bounds, one inilliouaire's wife has bad her bathroom; fitted with a huge tub that glitters like gold, at the head of which stands a tall, lovely female figure of brass, holding in her arms a water jar, from the mouth oi which, on pressing a lever, issues a hot or cold shower bath. But brass in house decoration, lavish though it is, invading the toilet table, •writing desk and sideboard, where only gold or silver lately reigned, is a fad distinct from brass collecting as an art and interest. Many women who for years have been gathering up book plates, fine china or jewels have now got rid of their treasures in order to devote time and money to brasses. Evening Toilet*. All stylish evening toilets have trains of various lengths appropriate for various textiles and occasions and in differ- jnt styles for individual wearers. There are to be seen, for instance, the seven, eight and nine gored models, the circular forms, the skirts, accordion plaited, Jounced, ruch^d, frilled, draped, paneled and rounded at the hems or cut in square shape. As a rule, however, the moru costly and beautiful the material the plainer is the skirt, a narrow ruche or a frill of handsome lace forming the only decoration, no matter how elaborately the bodice may be trimmed. air».

Mrs, Kate Cabell Currie of Dallas, the new president of the National Daughters of the Confederacy, is a daughter of General W. L. Cabeli, a CtMuuJerate veteran who is more famil- ijrly known throughout Dixie as Old i._;e. Just at present the Daughters are trying to raise a fund of $4,000, which is to be used iu marking the graves of the 30,000 Confederates who died in Union prisons. It is proposed to erect a simple shaft in each one of the 13 cemeteries of Union prisoners.

Ford, GiineralJPaBEeijgcr .Agent of the Pennsylvania and .Vandali* LInee. fends out the following- information regarding the modtaed featuroB of tbe Central Passenger Association's interchangeable one thousand mile ticket: Tbe most important modifications are ID the rule as to aiming- the mileage strip and IMU« ing the exchange ticket. Dniter the new rul% the owner of an interchangeable mileage ticket may, at his convenience and leisure, sign his name upon the back of the widest part of tie mileage strip cloae to the last preceding detatchment. (but it must, be signed with an indelible pencil or>lth ink, or it Trill not be honored), and^can leave his ticket thus stoned with the Agent upon his arrival at « station, or send it to bim;by ft messenger or *oy the hotel porter, or in some other way, and upon his return to the station find hl» exchange ticket ready and his bag)?age checked ; provided he has made such an advance arrangement. Therefore there need be no more delay at the station or on the train In the ino of the new lhan there was in using the old form of mileage ticket, which latter form WM good only over the system of roads, while tide "interchangeable" is good over forty* Tbe ol«i form of exchange ticket is valid for continuous passage only on a certain train and date, while the new or modified form will 'be good on any train, (except tha "Limited"), on either the date of issue or the day following. This new form has been simplified to render it easy of issue and to better accommodate travelers, and the hindrances which aoooov panied tbe old form •will therefore be, in t early future, entirely obliterated. Interline tickets, from points on one Railway to points on another, via through car HDSB and ria junctions where connections are close end there are no transfers, are being prepared M fust as possible. These tfck»ts will be issued in exchange for coupons from the interoiuu>ee- able mileage tiok(yt,and baggage will be checked through, n convenience which could not b« enjoyed by the use *f the old.form of mileage ticket. The modifications above alluded to hiivo been approved by the Mileage Ticket Bureau of the Genual Passenger Association, and will be in effect on or before December 1st. or 1uit as soon as the new forms of exchange and f«- terllne tickets can b« printed and distributed among the thousands of agencies of the forty different railway companies over whose Un*« the tickets are honored, and some Agents of the Pennsylvania Lines have been already supplied with them. It is believed that tbeao amendments to a plan which is ready successful and popular, will place the new inter* changeable mileage ticket beyond the reach of reasonable critics".
