Bars Pen Names,
- A cablegram to tho St Louis Globe
Domocrat under date of Paris, July
is, says: M. Gcrvaizo, deputy for
Nancy, has drawn up a bill compelling
people to drop pseudonyms, or pen
names, and to us their own. The bill
will soon bo preBonted to the cham
ber of deputies, and already It has
caused consternation In the ranks of
literary men and artists, for nowhere
else aro pseudonyms so freely used
In the literary and artistic world as
Writers who have made reputations
and are known to their readers only
by their pen names believe that they
will suffer great loss if they be forced
to abandon them. The Countess de
Martefde Janvllle, who is known to
readers of society novels by tho name
of "Gyp," is in tears. Pierre de Cou
levalre, who has made such clover
studies of American women, will bp
recognized with difficulty by her real
9 name of Mio. Fayord.
. Not one in fifty would know Jean
'. Lorraine by his family namo of Ver
dier. Even the traveled ajid cultured
Pierre Lot! is not widely known by
his real name of Julien Vaud. It is
doubtful If even professors of litera
ture know Anatolo Prance by any oth
er name. His real name, Antolno
Thibaut, conveys no means and con
jures up no poetic beauties.
A kindred confusion will be caused
in the ranks of Journalists. That
fighting editor, U.rbain Gohier, will not
bi permitted to so sign himself, for
this Is merely his nom de plume. Oc
tavo Uzanne, nephew of the late M.
de Blowitz, anf'. a writer on the Matin,
vwill have to sign his family name or
sr The Duke de Pomar must give up
his democratic signature of Victor
Bellechasse, and if the queen of Na
ples wishes to continue to contribute
- to newspapers It will not be over the
name of the Countess Isola, as she has
. Caricaturists are similarly In trou
ble. The world-renowned Caran
d'Ache will become plain Emmanuel
Poire; the witty Willy will become
Gauthier Villars. All the potency at
tached to the name of Rejane would
have to be rearranged should the law
compel her to wear the name of Mme.
The further sacrilege of making
Jane Hading become plain Jeanette
Hadingue would be committed. It
would force Mme. Calve to be put upon
the dead walls of the city as De Rp
quer. x The adoption of the bill would lead
,to the debaptism of the leading names
of' literature, the stage and the press.
None oF Man's Business.
We'd like to know why it is that
ladies have their dress skirts made so
long that they are obliged to carry a
half dozen yards of cloth in their
hands in order to bo able to walk?
Strange how some men will spend
so much valuable time in Issueless cur-
io8ity as" to the whys of a woman's
conduct. There is no "why" in the
case. No man knows anything about
any woman that ever lived, except his
.mother. And she is not like any other
womannot another like her ever
lived. A marrltv. man finds out new
things about his wife every day; finds
that he doesn't half know her; never
.did know her, never will know her;
she's too much for- him, too much for
any man living. She's the riddle of
'creation. In time he learns to quit
asking fool -questions like the above,
and about her net hose and half hose,
or which end of her dress is short
Us none of his busi.iess, and he won't
find out by asking, elther.Eagle
