New Hale at Five O'clock*.
Fashionable women have this season
discovered how to obviate the neces
sity of taking too much tea and yet to
preserve the aspect of sociability as
they make the rounds of the flve
u'eloc-k affairs. This is by taking
plain hot water, flavored with a little
of the lemon or cordial that is an in
variable accompaniment to the fash
ionable tea service. There has been
a decided tendency to vary the usual
wafers by some sort of fresh warm
bread. At some houses delightful
Sally I. unn is handed round, and min
iature tea biscuits, too, hot, and to be
eaten with butter, have been often
seen. Small fresh round sponge
cakes, often the work of the hostess
herself, are offered at some studio af
ternoons, and there is a universal sup
pression of sandwiches. These are no
longer deemed necessary or even de
Wouiiiii'a Xew 1 in port H n« a «*.
The position of woman has changed
greatly for the better in late years.
In the latter part of the sixties Miss
Laura Addington, of lowa, built up a
large business as a real estate
draughtsman and conveyancer. She
had talent, if not genius for the work,
and was so skillful that she won the
confidence of both the bar and the
banks. In response to their request
the Governor appointed her register,
notary or some other official connect
ed with that kind of work. The Chief
Executive issued a commission to L.
Addington. When asked, it is said,
why he did not write the first name,
"Laura," in full, he answered: "It's
enough disgrace to the State to have to
appoint a woman, and there ain't any
necessity for letting it be known to
the whole world."
Art of Talking Well.
One wonders if the great increase of
women's clubs has had anything to do
with the desire on the part of society
women to improve their conversational
powers. It is certain that the aver
age club-woman learns to think very
quickly when on her feet. It is also
true that some New York women this
season have felt their inability to con
verse well, and have secured a con
versation teacher for the purpose of
improving them in this respect. She
is quite different from the current
topics Instructor or the class-lecturer.
Her object is solely the cultivation of
conversational powers, and she does
this, taking anything as her subject.
She prefers not to take her pupils in
classes, and, it may be added, her pu
pils prefer to come singly.
The I.atliea' Valet.
The latest creation of the century Is
the Indies' Valet. This is not a per
son, but a little business concern. It
has a certain number of subscribers,
upon whom it calls once a week to per
form the functions of the valet and
maid. It receives boots, clothing and
bonnets. It does no laundry work,
and no boot cleaning. It repairs foot
wear, sews buttons and half soles and
heels. It cleans clothing, darns and
renovates. It retrims hats and makes
them presentable. It returns all the
goods within a few days after they are
received. For this weekly visit and
all this work the charges are a moder
ate annual subscription.
To I'revent Hold-t p».
An inventive genius in Media, Pa.,
has rigged up a device which he con
fidently predicts will put an end to
street car hold ups. He is a conductor
on an electric line and has lined the
Interior of his car with wires charged
with electricity. Along these wires
runs a small trolley device, intended
to be kept in his hand constantly, no
matter where be may be ia the car.
