The Delineator Magazine issue for October 1900 was a fascinating look at women's fashions at the turn of the twentieth century. They provided a glimpse of a women's life at the turn of the century with articles on fashion, clothing, housekeeping, raising children, and more.

Editorial Chat.

The article on The Women of China, by Laura B. Starr, will be read with great interest in the present number. Mrs. Starr's long residence in the Far East and extensive acquaintance with civil and official Chinese life make her exceptionally qualified to write on this subject. The pictures are reproduced from original photographs.

Although Miss Mabel McKinley, the President's niece, will not be married in the White House, interest in the event naturally suggests former weddings in which the Chief Executive participated. Mrs. Crowninshield's paper on White House Brides is delightfully reminiscent and furnishes an attractive picture of life and manners during the different administrations.

Charles G. D. Roberts' romance of White Marie and Dark Marianne is charmingly told, carrying a story of love, sacrifice, and supreme renunciation to the reader with its breath of the Acadian woods.
