A Safe Ye hide.
I hare traveled round the world.
Northward eighty-one degrees;
I have seen ice-mountains hurled
Into stormy, surging seas.
To the summit I've ascended
Of the highest Alpine peak;
And one day my way I wended
From Ceylon to Mozambique.
I've explored with learned sages
Parthenons and temples Doric;
And seen relics of the ages
That we call the prehistoric.
I'm at home In Rome and Venice,
Paris, London, Aberdeen;
And I've danced and playod lawn-tennis
With the daughter of a queen.
I have seen the Arab manly
Entertaining in his tent;
Traveled all the way with Stanley
Through the darkest continent;
Scaled those wondrous, storied cellars
In our own New Mexico,
Where the people called cliff-dwellers
Lived so many years ago.
Yet In all my journeys never
Have I suffered harm's attack;
Never coach or car whatever
That I boarded left the traok.
Never was I vexed or daunted
At hotel or foreign station;
For the car In which I jaunted
was my own Imagination.
How Lady Wilde Became a Nationalist.
Lady Wilde told a representative of
an English periodical the other day
how she came to be a Nationalist in
spite of the fact that her family were
violently opposed to such a course. "I
was always very fond of study and
books," said her ladyship. "My favor
ite study was languages. I succeeded
in mastering ten of the European lan
guages. Till my eighteenth year I
never wrote anything. All my time
was given to study. Then,
a volume of 'Ireland's
issued from the Nation
Mr. Duffy, happened to
my way. I read it eagerly and
my patriotism was kindled. My fam
ily was Protestant and Conservative,
and there was no social intercourse be
tween them and the Catholics and Na
tionalists. OnceI had caught the Na
tionalist spirit, and all the literature
of Irish wrongs and sufferings had an
enthralling interest for me. Then it
was that I discovered I could write
poetry. In sending my verses to the
editor of the Nation I dared not have
my name published, so I signed them
'Speranza,' and my letters 'John Fen
shaw Ellis' instead of Jane Francesca
Elgee. But after awhile Mr. Duffy
wished me to call at the office, and
again 'Mr. Ellis' had to excuse him
self from doing so. One day my
uncle came into my room and found
the Nation on my table. Then he ac
cused me of contributing to it, declar
ing the while that such a seditious
paper was fit only for the fire. The
secret being out in my own family
there was no lonsrer much motive for
concealment, and I gave my editor per- J
mission to call upon me. Even then,
as Sir Charles Duffy has since told me,
he scarcely knew who 'Speranza' might
be, and great was his suprise, there
fere, when I stepped out from an inner
An American Woman's Scientific Work.
Miss Zelia Nuttall is a San Francisco
woman who is doing remarkable
work in American anthropology. She
is at present in Dresden, Germany. She
surrounds herself with Azteo atmos-
phere; her library, one of the richest
in Mexican works in existence, is
cased in pieces of furniture whose
forms and decorations are drawn from
Mexican architecture. On all relating
to Mexican archaeology and history
she is an authority. Two of the Pea
body Museum monographs are by her
one upon a curious feather head
dress, the other upon the Mexican
throwing stick, or atlati. Recently
Miss Nuttall had the pleasure of
discovering at the old castle of Am
bras, Germany, a fine shield of ancient
Mexican' feather-work. In the last
number of the Internationales Archiv
fur Ethnographic she publishes an ex
haustive and handsomely illustrated
article upon the subject of feather
shields from Mexico. In a recent visit
to Florence, Italy, Miss Nuttall dis
covered in the library an Aztec manu
script with pictures. It turned out to
be a treatise upon dress and ornament,
and contains a text in Spanish letters.
This, reprinted in fac-simile with crit
ical notes and an English translation,
Miss Nuttall will present at the next
congress of Americanists in October.
Ilurouens Rothschild's Pearls.
One million dollars is the mice of
th'e five chains of pearls forming the
collar worn on state occasions by the
Baroness Gustave de Rothschild, and
those worn by her sister are scarcely
less valuable. The sister of Mme
Thiers, Mile. Dosne, is also the owner
of valuable pearls, which she has been
collecting during thirty years of her
life. The Empress of Austria has the
most valuable collection of black pearls
in the world. A story is told of a fa
mous French actress who wore pearls
of such enormous size in a play that
she was criticised by one of her friends.
"It is true," she said, "the lady I rep
resent probably wore smaller pearls in
real life. But what can I do? I have
no small pearls."
Duran's Portrait of Mrs. Ayers.
' Mrs. Ayers, the wealthy New York
widow, lias had her portrait minted
by Carolus Duran, and the probabilities

shoes are on her feet and the artist's
love of color is further illustrated by
the revealing of a bright-red pair of
stockings. The English papers allude
to the picture as "Queen Croesus," and
criticise Duran for representing the
estimable Mrs. Ayers in this fashion
and missing all her sweet and womanly
