Mrs. Clarkson lias an nptltudo for politics
that amounts almost to a gift. Thcro is
no mora popular woman among tho poli
ticians of tho country than sho. They all
know and admire her. Probably sho
knows n greater number of political
secrets than any other woman in Amer
ica, and holds them closer. That a wo
man can keep a secret is well exempli
fied In her. Sho is a flno representative
of that admirablo class of American
women who accompany their husbands

business or political llfo tho light of a
woman's sympathy, cheerfulness and re

clous nil her life. With her husband
sho has attended thrco or four national
conventions, and has been present at
many of tho innumerablo conferences
held in thoir rooms. When Mr. Clarkson
went to Now York last summer to labor
in tho national committco as a campaign
manager Mrs. Clarkson accompanied
him. No secrets were kept from her,
and nono wcro over lost through her. In
Iowa site is known and loved by all tho
politicians of tho state. They go to her
for counsel, in politics or love. So ua
sho sits hero for an hour in her husband's
ofllco publlo men by tho hundred, states
men, orators, men of success In politics
and law, eagerly grasp her hand. In hor
politics, as in her husband's, thcro is no
sclflAhuess. Thoy aro over assisting
others, never seeking for themselves.
Sho Is entitled to plaao with thoso other
American women politicians, Mrs. Lo
gan, Mrs. McDonald of Indianapolis,
Lady Randolph Churchill of Lngland.
Like them sho has mixed with politicians
without losingnny of her womanly graco
and sweetness. Sho has, too, reared a
family of lxyn who aro suro to bring
honor to their parents and win success
Thcro l no happier family clrclo than
that of the Clarksons, and though thoy
do not seek notoriety, thcro is profit in
tho uso of tho instanco which thoy afford
of the untruthfulness of tho popular no
tion that political associations aro de
moralizing. About tho uufavorablo in

Impossibility of woman engaging therein
without loss of tlio charms of her box,
there is n great deal of cant and non

There are score of women in Wash

An Incident of tho closing days of tho
last congress shows what u woman can
do. Sho was on hor way to tho scnato
commltteo room to boo n senator who
had agreed to look after n prlvato bill.
To eavo this bill from dofent prompt ac
tion was necessary. Tlio senator must
bo seen immediately, becauso written
word from htm was wanted at tho other
end of the Capitol in ten minutes. If
this could bo procured In tlmo n favora
bio report on tho bill, and probably Its
passage would result. Hut tho Ameri
can houso of lords was In oxecutlvo ses
sion, and when tho houso of lords is in
oxecutlvo session, nil common mortals
must take to tho woods. As soon as
secret session Is ordorcd thcro Is n loud
ringing of bolls, tho gallorlcs aro cleared
and tho doors, of doublo thickness, se
curely locked, Not only this, but tho
up3r corridors of tho Bcnato wing nro
cleared. No jwrsoti Is permitted to re
main up thcro, though by no possibility
could ono overhear what was going on
In tho chamlwr below. At tho foot of
tho staircases guards nro stationed to
stop nil intruders on theso upper corri
dors, temporarily sacred to tho silenco
of tho great senate's secret session.
Of course, our woman with the prl
vato bill, eager to boo tho Bcnntor ut
work upstairs in his commltteo room,
was Btoped at tho foot of tho staircase.
"STAND BACK! EXKCUTIVK SESSION.''
Expostulations wero in vain, vain en
treaties and threatened tears. "Wo
must obey our orders, ma'am." "Dut I
don't want to go near tlio senate cham
ber. I won't steal anything, not oven a
look through tho keyhole." "Can't help
it, ma'am orders must bo obeyed." But
tho woman did not loso her wits. She
know thcro was another staircase, and
sho dctonninod to try that. On tho way
over she decided on a despcrato bluff.
"Stop, plane, Exccutivo Bcsslom"
"I wisl to boo Senator in hiscom
"Can't help it. Executive session."
"But, air," sweeping past the guard
with a haughty air, "I am tho senator's
wlfo, and you daro not stop mo."
And bIio was right. No scnato cm
ployo dares offend a senator's wlfo or any
member, of a senator's family. 116 Is
afraid of losing his head. The woman
saw her senator, secured hU autograph,
returned to tho houso and saved her bllL
A man would havo sworn at the guards,
found a page, given him n dollar to toko
a noto up to tho senator, and lost his ton
minutes nnd his opportunity.
