Ei"o:-t.i" ' ivce. ;m i::'.i i-etiiv? account of
tlu; i trngel.-s f poor i'innish girl, who,
in the teeth of every privation and dilii-.
cu'ty, has achieved tin-u.-.tiiu;tion. iiuique
in her country, of a diploma as the iirst
feuKile doctor of philosophy. Irene AI
etrosn, a.T she tended her father's cattle in
the land --of a. thousand lakes," dreamed
and pondered over all tho marvels of
science and learning which seemed for
ever a sealed lxxk to her poverty and
ignorance. Yearning to be wise, yet
seeing no hope in a gray life of toil and
struggle, at last ehe prayed to die, that
she might reach a sphere where her crav
ings would be satisfied !
A humane pastor, divining her longing-,
sent her to a good school, where she
passed as fourth among forty -six young
girls, at the age of 18, though only pre
pared by her own self lie! p. She took
work in earnest here, often sitting up all
night, thinking over tho day's tasks,
while her companions slept all around
her, and afterward when as a day pupil
the had to provide her own meals, she
sometimes went to the classes fasting,
save for the fresh snow she picked up and
ate on tho way, for her father was totally
ruined, and she must soon leave school
and begin earning. For a while the
bravely suppressed her longings, and
submitted to the drudgery of teaching,
yet never losing sight of the goal she bad
long had at heart her matriculation.
At last, having saved $20, with the
scantiest of luggage e-he journeyed to
Ilclsingfors, and in defiance of opposition,
chiefly feminine, Irene prepared for her
ordeal. She paid her lodging in advance
for the whole winter (15), and invested
in four loaves of the hard round rye biscuit
of Scandinavia and Finland, which keeps
many months, dividing them methodi
cally so that she had a piece for each day
till Christmas. In the depth of winter
tho worked without a fire, at a tempera
turo of 30 dogs. Celsius. A kind profes
sor taught her Latin, moved by her as
Eiiranco that unless she learned it she
could neither live content nor die happy.
Her progress was most rapid; she matri
culated, taught again awhile for the
suka of her family, renewed hor own
btu-Jies, took a brilliant . degree, and at
last, recognized by her nation for what
s he is, tho dauntless pioneer of women's
progress, she now lives honored and ep
prcciated, still educating her brothers,
slid thirsting insatiably after truth.
Street Car StaiKiiru.
Few iieople who use tho Broadway horse
railroad ever stop to conrider the large num

must employ and the number of passengers
carried by these cars.
In a conversation with one of the t.filit rspf

J 'arncd: The stables of the road contain 2,100
horses, and for each of them two sets of har
ness must be provided. The avenge street
