A Resolution a been adopted by a Large majority of the geographical Congress at Berne that the Green wich Meridian ought to be universally accepted As the prune. This gives a noteworthy Sanction to the View area in the Washington International conference of 1s84. Al though the interval of seven years Between these two assemblages has seen Little Progress toward carrying out the earlier recommendation yet it is Clear that it there a to be a Universal first Meridian for the measure ment of Longitude and the division of time the Meridian which passes i Rouga the Royal Observatory at Green Leta has by far the strongest Chilli to selection. The Rii Oice has always been chiefly a question of convenience and suit ability for reckoning. Oue of the primes taken was that of Rhodes then that of the for to a ate it ies wan a a used As they were the farthest land accessible in that direction. The Peak or Teneriffe was Tor a Lona Lime accepted a the first Uteri Diati. A coi Gresk of men of science assembled Richelieu in selected rhe stand of Ferro for the purpose Aud this remained Auau Hority for u Long time although there were reckoning Tom other Points such As Sau Miguel one of the various countries have used their own capitals like Paris for example Lor the reckoning of for Many year however the supremacy of Greenwich has been apparent irom the fact that Many nations which fix upon a Meridian with in their own domains also accept the British prime. This May he seen in the maps commonly used in the United states. Even when they reckon Longitude Froais Yvo by figures marked at the top of the map they give the reckoning from Greet Wien at the Bottom. It has Long been evident that various us Ofiu cages would result from having a Universal first Meridian including even More in navigation in some conceivable instances. It in further evident that in order to bring about this universality nation Ai prejudices must Marl feed. In such a scientific matter there is no proper room Lor patriotic oils great Britain is the chief maritime and commercial Power of toe world a. Power too. Whose colonies in both hemispheres constitute in some cases great and growing empires of them selves naturally has the prior claim to the adoption of her prime Meri Dian but Wien one is also sup ported by country territorially and commercially a great As the United when the Greenwich Meridian is already adopted on the Encarta of Many other countries the argument is overwhelming in its fiver. Other things belong equal a Hau Geof this character should be a noted in a Way that will Render obsolete As few As possible of existing maps and charts. The question is practically reduced to that of the Greenwich prime or no Universal prime since it would be unreason Able that the majority should yield to the few. France supported by one or two latin countries appears to be the chief obstacle to such an agree ment. The difference in time Between Greenwich and Paris is nine min utes. In the Meridian conference at Washington the recommendation of the Greenwich very decided the delegates from France and one or two other countries declining too cur and on that occasion also a Universal Day was recommended.

They never went without their mothers the theatre nor Riding nor were they allowed to sit with Young men in the parlor unless their mothers were present. I remember a Young fellow from Baltimore invited a young1 woman to the opera. She said she would be most Happy to go. When he came in a Carriage her father and Mother came Down stairs Aud Grot into the Carriage with her. He was surprised but supposed they were going on Turnr own account. Of arriving at the theatre he found that they did intend to pay for their tickets and he had Dot Money enough. Luckily he saw a Friend from whom he borrowed hut you can imagine Bis mortification at being caught in such a scrape. He invited no More Young women to the opera. He could t afford to take whole family. Another Northern gentleman asked a Young lady to ride and went around the House with a horse and buggy. Where s your Carriage asked the Young woman. There it said he. But that won t hold us she and you and me to he had to Oto and get a Carriage and a Driver. As he had a salary of Only a year he found this sort of a thing too expensive besides he never got any fun out of it with the Mother sitting by and listening to every word heavy losses sustained by not. Buying Tea at Holland s. Tion transcript. For several weeks a question has asked of Many Boston women girl s living in and out of town. T is question is one which is of Par tic Ilner Iii Terest now that a pocket Book Suat tier has j ust been arrested. Why do you carry your pocket Book in your the answers Are of More interest still Here Are a Baker s dozen of with the pointed Yoke them Given by women of Leisure and women of business school girls and girls who have half forgotten school Why do i carry my pocket Book because i have no i48o that i can get at because i have no i Don t because i have no i like to have something in my hand when i m because i have no pocket so that i la be sure i lost because i have no it s the place for i carry nay pocket Book in nay baud said a girl who a tremendous heiress simply to please the Young men who think my heart s in my the Nape of the neck. Cleveland Leader very Tew women know How important the Nape of the neck is. If there is one Point of rhe body that the aver age girl neglects and the Wise Beauty Cires for it a this spot. Why there is said a k regeous example of the sex that finally completes a Beautiful woman s Triumph As does the Nape of her neck if the line is Gruce tul if the skin is pure and the Small accidental Lings of hair that fall there Are artistic ally managed the spell that this part of a woman exerts Over a Man is tremendous. I must say that few women have Good naps8. A girl who always wears her dresses Cut High to her hair will usually be dark in i unattractive there. There s nothing like the air to purify then and the More a girl neck catch the breezes the fairer it Wili get. This is not generally believed but let any woman ask her Selt if the few dark spots on her Are not just where the skin has been constantly hot and covered. Well the Nape of the neck is Peculiar in this regard. To be White it must be kept free from woolens Aud the hair. Ouse Given a Good skin the rest is easy. Of course the Ueck shows to the Best advantage when the hair is brushed up and away from it but there should be some tiny Little stray thistledown of falling away frown the rest. These must be natural mind or at least just separated and curled with the fingers. Of the horror of the girl who has curled that part of her hair with an Iron and of the crime of the girl who has made a hang there if the hair is skilfully managed and the skin White then the Only thing desired a the Good line. A woman who presses Chin Down and holds her head stiffly can not have a Good line at the neck. The Chin must be raised a Little and the head somewhat up and pushed for Ward. This gives a perfect Angle from just Between the shoulders to the hair. Because i have no was the last answer As it was in so Many other cases. Now there is no need of Riding a fiery crusade against the state of things which the frequency of this reply and the arrest of the pocket to k snatcher indicate. He poor was but the natural result of the prominence of the pocket Book a condition which must right itself and can never be righted from out Side. Brave indeed with More then Chautauqua bravery would be the reformer who should attempt to right a pocket irom the outside. All who have Ever attempted to find a pocket n a lady s dress will acknowledge that. But a careful and Ethi study of the pocket less dress of the period proves to any sane mind that some kind of a halt must be called Stop been called time Aud again to no purpose. Dresses remain pocket less. In Days of scant Ness when our Yards of double Width goods make a dress for the modern women of moderate size there is no place for a pocket. One pro found observer says that pocket has disappeared with the Petticoat in other words manifold skirts afforded Coy recesses for the hiding away of voluminous pockets now when petticoats Are Tew there is no place for the pocket to conceal itself and shameless indeed would be the packet which would assert itself or gape in the a draped seams of the modern dress. True there Are chatelaine and there Are pocket Book bags that a intr from the Arm but either of these is More tempting to the thief than the pocket Book clutched firmly in firm in tie fingers. Before the Power of custom science and prophecy must wait. The girls Are going to carry their pocket books in their hands until they get to carry them other Wise. There Are Many Noble exceptions to the Hau carry ing majority there is nothing in love s Young dream More Sweet than the proud consciousness of superiority of the woman who can say to herself my pocket Book is indeed a pocket Book and goes about in my pocket Aud not in my by than i could were i burdened with the Long skirts about my feet. I think the secret of becoming dress for Stout women is a look of Comfort and smoothness. Of course there is just so much flesh. If you squeeze it in one place it must stick out in another and this merely Calls attention to the surplus. The pret Tiest and most becoming dress i Ever had was a Tea gown arrangement with a pointed Yoke. The general effect was that of a Mother Hubbard extending Al most to the Waist line front and Back. A Sase of sewing silk Grenadine was drawn around the Waist and knotted about one third of the distance Down the length of the skirt id front. I wore that dress one Day when some friends dropped in and they immediately asked me what 1 had been doing to get thin.
