Womoii ns Drummers.
Albany Argus : A few years since , when
the business community was startled by
the innovation of women as traveling
salesmen , it was argued that they
would bo a success , as they could n ot
Jill the many social obligations required
to sell largu amounts , An experience of
two or throe years , however , has given
the matter nn entirely different aspect.
It is found tlmt the lady drummer makes
an impression on the country merchant ,
especially In thn west , where the male
member of the fraternity would fail. A
commercial man of largo experience says
thu merchants will hold their orders for
tliu laay drummer , oven though a dozen
of their own sex odor nnd beg to fill them
on advantageous terms.
Again , they nro always In need of
something when the lady drummer calls ,
while with the man It Is moro often
"nothing to-day. " The 'success of the
women drummers is much more marked
with the merchants of the opposite sex
than with their own. Women in trade
dp not usually tnko kindly lo women as
commercial travelers and it has been
suggested that in the future , when every *
thing is "down line , " women will bo em
ployed exclusively to sell to the men and
the men to take orders from the women
in trade ; but as only a small proportion
of merchant and traders are of the gentle
sex it is obvious that when that day
comes , if it overdoes , the ladies will have
a practical monopoly of the business , as
the mules do now , and the men must
then find something else to do.

Itioh New Vork Women ,
The New Yorfc correspondent of the
Philadelphia Record writes : I am every
day astonished at the wealth of this city ,
We nro supposed to know at least the
names of the rrtHllonhires , ornt any rate
jcoplo wlioso fortunes nmotint to moro
Imn n million or two ; but wo < Io not
know tlio half of them , nnd the number
> ! wealthy women In Now York Is past
juhcf. I know a Indy whom nobody
over hoard of ouUMo of her own circle
sf acquaintance who Ims $5,000. < M ) of
lior own. 1 known another Indy who
1m $3,000,000 ! of another , recently dead ,
with from $3,0 , 0,000 to 16,000,000. Thosu ,
of course , not including the well known
wealthy widows such ns the Into Mrs.
A. T. Stewart , tlioVidow Hitmnicrsley ,
Mrs. May nnd n dozen others. The china
nnd household ornaments of the Widow
McCrosky were sold at auction this week.
Thcro was nothing very striking about
the collection , though it wasan expensive
one. Widow McCrosky loaves about six
million dollars , a largo part of which is
invested In the Chemical National bank.
Mrs. McCrosky got m when the shares
were at par. Now a share that originally
coil ? 10t ) Is worth $3,500 ; so if Mrs. Mc
Crosky had a/few hundred shares in this
bank her income would have been a great
deal larger than ono would have thought ,
taking the ordinary percentage which
nowadays seems to bo live.
I know another Indy in Now York who
has sfu.000,000 of her own , $2.000,000 of
which she will scttlo upon her daughter
if her daughter marries to please her. If
thu daughter does not If she takes it into
her hoatl to run oil * with the coachman
she will bo cut off withaKlulllng ; at least
that is what her mother says now. It is
not generally glvon out that the mother
is going to make this marriage settlement
on her daughter. If it were 1 tliink she
would have an embarrassment of suitors.
Two million dollars is a good deal to sot-
tic upon a bride moro in fact than la
wise but I tliink it much bettor for
wealthy parents to give their children a
dowry when they marry than to give
them nothing until their death , when the
property is divided. The Idea of mar-
riii 1:0 settlements , which ns a general
thing is repugnant ; to Americans , is not
a bad one. It makes a woman independ
ent and it makes it possible for her to
marry a poor man who might DC a ninoh
bolter husband for her than a richer ono.
When young men or young women have
been brought up surrounded by every
luxury nt home , and then get married
and are obliged to live as though they
were In straitened circumstances , when
they know at the death of their parents
they are going to liavo all tlio money
they want , It makes thorn , I fear , look
forward to tlio death of their parents
with feelings akin lo resignation. Jf at
their marriage a good round sum of
money were settled upon them , I think
tlio e'llcct would be more satisfactory
than is found in anticipation.
Speaking of rich wo'mcn , Mrs. Fred-
crick Stevens , whose marriage to the
Marquis do Talleyrand has excited so
much talk in fashionable circle1 * , is onu
of the richest. Her yearly income is
$300,000 , and she gets the creator part of
this from the Chemical National bank ,
In which she is one of the largest Block-
holders. Her father , 1 believe , was ono
of the founders of the bank. Mrs
Stevens' relations with the Marquis do
Talleyrand huvo been of a scandalous
nature for a unmoor of years. The mar
quis , as well as Mrs. Stevens , was mar
ried , and has a wife , a Boston woman ,
and a family of children. Ho is a bril
liant man , but is extremely unpleasant
to look at. and is nn inveterate gambler.
But Mrs. Stevens became enamored of
him and gave up husband , homo and
children and followed him through
Europe. She came back from abroudn
few months ago and. wont to live at Newport -
port , that she might take advantage of
the loose divorce laws of the state of
Rhode Island. There she got a divorce
granted her on the plea of non-support.
Her husband made no objection , and
after obtaining a divorce she went back
to Paris ami married tlio Marquis do
Talleyrand , who in the meantime hud
become divorced from his wife , on what
ground I do not know. Perhaps she got
the divorce from him , which she might
easily have done.
.Now anything moro absurd than Ibis
lea of non-support on the part of Mrs.
Stevens could hardly bo imagined. Mrs.
Stevens is the daughter of a wealthy mer
chant of Now York city by tlio name of
Sampson , who had more money than so
cial positionand who was possessed with
an ambition to got into society , or at
least to get his daughter in. Frederick
Slovens was a young lawyer of limited
practice but high social position , and in
him Mr. Sampson saw his opportunity.
The match wns ono of convenience , but
it was n love match as well. Mr. Stevens
was anxious to go on with his business ,
but father-in-law Sampson would not
listen to It. Ho made him retire from the
practice of the law , and told him ho
would iind nil the business ho wanted
taking care of his wife's ' estate. Mr.
Stevens hesitated ut lirst , but the offer
was a tempting ono , nnd ho linally ac
cepted it as n matter of course , nnd ho
did look closely after his wife's affairs ,
aud they were supposed to bo a happy
oouplo us couples go ; nnd they were , I
believe , until the Marquis Do Talleyrand
appeared upon the scene. Mrs. Stevens
no sooner rested her eyes upon his ugly
little face than she lost her head , and for
got not only common decency , but all the
instincts of a wife and mother.

Successful Adaptation of Pulp to an
Now York Tribune : The growing
scarcity of the timber supply has given
rise to thu serious question of how to
produce packages for oil , liquors and
similar substances which will meet the
demands of the market. This question
has at dillcront times during the
last twenty years led to various ut-
tempts to produce a paper barrel
which would answer all the purposes for
which tliu wooden barrel is used. These
attempts , however , liavo been attended
witli no practical success until recently ,
when a barrel was produced from paper
pulp which seems destined to supersedes
the wooden article. Its general appear
ance is Hint of the common wooden bar
rel thickly vnrnlslied , while only five
pieces are used in making it. It is bound
with ordinary wooden hoops , and the
head Is of ono piece , so constructed that
it ills Into the barrel air-tight and is held

Atlantu Conslitntlon : If a girl must
ninrrv , aud aBrooklynmnn comes along ,
wo ailviso her to take him.
In Brooklyn husbands know their
duties , and when they fail to coino up to
tlio mark they acknowledge their short-
coinings and clamor for punishment ,
Take a recent case. A young nitm ap
peared In a 'Brooklyn court , tlio other
iluy , nnd nsked the judge to liavo him ar
rested. Ills honor demanded an expla
nation , and thu visitor stated that ho had
been guilty of cruelty to his wife. When
pressed for particulars lu > said that while
hu had notboatnn his wlfo or neglected
her for tiio llowlnir bowl , ho had boon
cruel to her from financial standpoint.
In other words , ho had not given her
money enough to properly sui > port her.
1'urttior questioning developed the fact
that his wife had preferred no charge
against him. After thinking the matter
over the judge bcgced the young man to
co homo and give himself another trial.
The advice was accepted and the culprit
loft the court room.
Now taking it for Granted that this
young man was an average Urooklyn
TmsbanJ , the case is rich in suggestions.
Let a wife have a proper amount of linn-
ness and enterprise , and it is plain that
such a husband would bo a bonanza to
her. If these soft hearted Urooklvn men
do not come into great demand all over
the country it will bo because our girls
are not looking after their interests. The
incident is full of encouragement. It
gives us glimpses of the model husband
of the future.
London Truth : It is curious how
French grandee's , who have really no ad
vantage to win by glaring publicity.conrt
it. Ono sees this most perhaps , in their
weddings. The rule seems to be faire
autant d'cnvicux as possible. Everything
the bride receives from her family or
friends is exhibited. There arc CMiibi-
bitions of her trousseau at the warerooms -
rooms of the different trades people who
have furnished it. Everything is on view
no matter how it may bo named or to
what use it is destined , and the public
are apprised through the journals in re
clames paid for at the rate of5 francs a
line , whore the things arc on exhibi
tion. All the modes gather around
the tables , and shallow and
elegantly ribboned baskets in winch the
intimate clothing is laid out. The demi-
mondn never falls to visit a show of this
kind. English lingcrps have rot the as
tonishing skill in getting up body linen
in which tliero is nothing but a very small
allowance of cambric , and a very largo
allowance of iine valoncienncs. There
is then the body "liners , " made of tussore
or foulard silks and lace and ribbon.
You SPO it all in costly trousseau. It used
to bo the thing for brides of high lineage
to have quakcr-liko underclothing , but
under the full blaze of journalism it has
pone out , and is now thought old-fash
ioned and no credit to anyone.
The grand exhibition is at the matinee
do contrat , to which only relatives , ac
quaintances and the press arc invited.
The journalists are requested to note the
"objects do picto" on the bride's gift
table ; that iswhan they are in sumptuous
or very artistic settings. For instance , a
scrap of the veil in which the Virgin
was churched , or nn atom of the crown
of thorns set in a .jeweled reliquary , is an
object to bo proud of. The prayer book
should be in the style of Anne do

Chicago Times : It ia not a now ques
tion as to the advisability of marriage on
tlio part of pcoplo who depend wholly on
their brains forlhcir support , ami it is
quito possible that all there & to bo said
tititwl it lins been said over and over
again. It is , however , a subject of ever-
present interest , a fact which may justify
KuiiKi further allusions.
In one of the great religious denom
inations it was found , after a long ox-
poricnco in the case of its priests , tliut
celibacy was conducive to thu produc
tion of higher results than marriage ,
and therefore the former condition was
adopted and made obligatory. The
reasons for the enforcement of a celibate
life were few but potent ; thu cares of a
family interfered with the performance
of duty. The husband and father had
little opportunity to act as a priest ; iho
excelled in the ono capacity , ho failed in
Literature has its priesthood , whoso
ministrations arc us vital , as important
Tmd as imperative- their demands as
those of any religious denomination.
More so , In fact , for literature embodies
in its extent all that is valuable in human
progress , divine intent and action ; it as
sists in thu development of all the bene
ficial efforts of humanity , and records
and preserves Its proceedings.
To perfectly perform this colossal , del
icate and unending labor , and to do it
well , requires on the part of Its servants
a singleness of purpose , a clearness of
thought , an exactness in judgment which
can not exist whore the external intlu-
onccs are permitted to Lntermintrio. The
priest who ministers ut the altar of litera
ture muit devote hla. entire thought , her
devotion , to the ahrlno at which ho wor
ships , Ho cannot , in the sacred precincts
of tlio sanctuary , turn aside to haggle
over the price of poultry , to cheapen tno
cost of fuel , to wrangle over the outlay
for laundry work or the monthly stipend
of domestic service.
The literary man and woman are ut
terly nnliko everybody else ; they have
their special tomporamenls.thoir individ
ual idiosyncrasies , their peculiar methods
of thought , their positive sympathles.nml
dislikes. To yoke n man of this kind
with nn ordinary woman is not only to
impair his capability to carry on his
work , but it to to fasten on him a life of
wretchedness. The same is true of the
literary woman. Ally her to the average
man , nnd she is at once provided with n
ball nnd chain which she must drag nt
every stop of her progress. While neither
the literary man or woman can , with
benefit , marry outside of the profession ,
it is moro dangerous find deleterious to
marry within it. The most undoMrablo
of iiniong are those in which two literary
people resort to marriage , the case of the
Brownings lo.tho contrary notwithstand
ing. Where there has been ono instance
of Brownitiglsm in matrimony there have
boon a thousand cases in which the direct
opposite has been the result.
The explanation is very simple. A
husband nnd wife tluvotcu to literature
clash eternally on the same plane. It is
n case of an encounter of the invincible
nnd thu irresistible. The essential ( infer
ences of sex begot irreconcilable antagon
ism ; the respective Idimla projected by
each necessarily dill'er as do masculine
strongtli and fuininlnu delicacy. Thov
can not ngreo ; it is a union without af
finity , a mechanical composition without
cohesion in the particles. In the in
stance of literary men and women who
marry outside of their domain , thcro is
often moro happiness to bo found than
within , nnd vet the rttlo is that such
unions are disastrous. It is especially so
with women of brains who select : i part
ner from out of tlio masses ; there are
morodlvorced literary women in existence
than there are wives of tlio same pro
fession This class of woman , if she
marries ono of her kind , seeks for intellec
tual domination over her husband ; if she
secures it , she despises him for his weak
ness ; if she loses it , she hates him ns a
The literary husband witli a wife not
in sympathy with him is rarely happy ,
and never able to accomplish thu com
plete intellectual results that he would if
unincumberod by such a burden. Ho is
demoralized by domestic wrangles , and
want of sympathy , and incensing con
tact with the commonplace. In view of
all these facts , it is best that the literary
people should determine on celibacy.
To marry is to commit intellectual Imra-
kari ; lo diminish largely the utility of a
life's services , nnd to add vastly lo the
unhappincss of the participants.
HE LASSOED A HUGE LION.
A. Cowboy's Terrible Hide With a
"bast summer , while in Wyoming , I
had a decidedly startling adventure , " re
marked a young man the other day In the
presence of a ban Francisco Call repor
ter. And subsequently , upon bcimi ques
tioned by the latter , ho told the following
remarkable but well-authenticated tale :
I was in the employ of a cattle com
pany in short "a cowboy" and besides
a natural love of adventure , which J had
gratillcd for several years , had , no doubt ,
imbibed some of that spirit of utter reck
lessness which characterizes the class of
which I was , tor the time being , a mem
ber. Early ono bright morning my em
ployer sent me out to look lor some
horses which had strayed , he thought ,
somewhere in the vicinity of Lance creek
( about 200 miles north of Cheyenne ) , only
a few miles from where wo were then
Mounted on my stout little broncho , or
"cow pony , " I soon reached the crook ,
and rode slowly along its banks , keeping
n sharp lookout for the missing animals.
The banks of the creek wore fringed
with cotton wood and ponlar trees , inter
mingled with clumps of osiers and a
dcnso undergrowth , but on either side
the country was open but hilly. Expe
rience had taught mo to bo suspicious of
any tree or bush in that section largo
enough to ambush a human being ; for ,
to say nothing of the white desperadoes ,
Sioux and Clioycnno Indians from the
Pine llidgo agency were frequently mot
with , and , though professedly at peace ,
were not to DO trusted. Consequently , as
I rode along , I from time to tlmo peered
anxiously in among the trees and under
I had followed the course of the creek
several miles when suddenly my pony
snorted nnd jumped to ouo side , almost
unseating mo. Perhaps ten paces in
front of mo , crouched as if ready to
spring , were three large mountain lions.
I had always had a great dcsiro to meet
ono of those creatures in his native
wilds ; but this was a trillo too much of a
good thing to suit mo. Without u sec
ond's thought , however , I whipped out
my Colt's revolver the only weapon I
had and lircd at tlio croup. At the re
port of my pistol two of them bounded
oil' through tlio underbrush and were
soon out of sight , and the other , uttering
a shrill scream , writhed for a second on
the ground and then attempted to follow
his companions , limping badly.
My blood was up ; two of the fine crea
tures had taken flight and without reflec
ting upon the possible consequences I
put spur to my pony and dashed after
the wounded lion. Moving so rapidly I
knew it would bo impossible to shoot
with accuracy , and there was great dan
ger of the lion turning upon mo if I np-
nronchcd too near. .Suddenly it Unshed
through my mind. A > by can't I lasso
him as I have heard of gauchos doing on
the pampas ?
Attached to my saddle was my braided
rawhide lasso , about forty feet in length ,
in the use of which 1 hiuf , ns every cow
boy must , become quite nrolicient. Ono
end of it was ( irmly attached lo the pom
mel of my saddle , and the remainder of
it carefully coiled up , was tied to the
front of the saddle by means of a couple
of rawhldo strings or thongs. Hastily
unfastening tlio latter without chock
ing my pony which wustivluontly much
excited , and inclined to sheer nway from ,
the lion I prepared for the thr-o'w. 1
had used my Insso so siuch frequently
doing JilU < 2 Giso but lasso or "ropo" oat-
Us for Weeks together , and it was but the
work of n moment. Carefully measuring
the distance with my eye , I whirled thu
lasso several times nrountt my head and
at what seemed the proper moment let
Jly. The instant it left my hand my
pony , as ho had been trained , stopped
and braced back , almost upon his
haunches. My calculations had been
I saw the rope settle around the lion's
neck nnd thu next instant , when ho
reached the end of it , and tightening , it
threw him on hU back , ho uttered the
most appalling scream it was over my lot
to hoar. Tlio instant the rope became
taut you may bo biiro I did not waste
any tlmo I wheeled my pony in the op
posite direction ; dug my spurs into his
side , and darted away , dragging the lion
after me. That , I am sim > , was the most
exciting moment of my life , I did not
stop to look back. 1 simply dujj the
spurs into my pony's llankj , knowing If
1 relaxed my sneed if for a instant , the
lion might spring upon me. Even ns it
wns I realized that at any moment I
might feel the creature's sharp claws in
my buck ; and the particular manner in
which a mountain lion is said to kill ( by
drawing back thu head of its victim with
ono paw until the neck is broken ) hap
pened nt this moment to occur to mo. It
was not , strictly speaking , a cheering
At the commencement of the mad gal
lop when on uovurnl occasions the lasso
slackened , owing to the huge bounds the
creature took , I shuddered aud croucho4
in my saddle , fearing that the nnxt nun
ute might bo my last. For a time ! my captive
tivo rent the air with his cries , which so
frightened my pony that 1 soon saw thai
I need not urge him ; ho was doing Lla
Soon Ihf screaming grow less frequent
and linally censed altogether , and I
noticed with satisfaction that the Jnsso
remained perfectly taut all the time. I
then for the lirst tlmo looked back nnd
from appearances concluded that my
captive was dead. I had , however , IH
can perhaps bo imagined , a strong desire
sire to make assurance doubly sure , and
rode some distance further before stop
Even then I was In no hnslo to dis

self beyond all doubt that ho was dead

TolCBPnph Operators' Secret * .
Electric Ago-JEvcry telegrapher will tell
you how operators quarrel over the wire.
The men who are the most quiet nnd gen *
tlomanly in their personal relations are
sometimes the most disagreeable to work
with. It is so easy , you know , to call a
man a fool when several hundred miles
of wire separate you , nnd , besides , tlio
fear of the consequences is very slight
I shall never forgot an amusing fight I
once hcnid between an operator atXonia ,
Ohio , and another at Cincinnati. After
each had exhausted his vocabulary of
billingsgate the operator at Cincinnati
suddenly subsided and refused to con-
tlliuo the contest , whereupon Xonia
snapped out :
'What's tlio difTorcncn between you
nnd a jackass ? " Quick as a Hash came
the reply : "Just sixty miles. Give mo a
hauler one. "
"Is it true , " asked ono of the bystand
ers , "that nn operator's mood may bo
determined by his manner of using the
key ? "
" 13oyond a doubt , " was the reply. "If
you have been in the habit of working
regularly with a man you can toll before
you exchange half a dozen messages
whether ho is feeling fresh and buoyant ,
tired or lazy or out of sorts by his man
ner of transmission. Thcro is as much
individuality about a man's sending us
about his penmanship , and ho can bo as
readily distinguished by it. A case in
point is related by Alf Savillo , who
worked ono of the government wires bo-
twccn Nashville and Louisville during
thu war. Ono day , while the wires were
idle , some ono at an intermediate station
called at the Nashville oilieo and began
asking Savillo a number of questions
about the movement of troops and other
matters connected with the army. De-
fore two minutes Savillo recognized his
" ' 1 say , George Ellsworth , what the
devil uro you doing there ? " Hashed Sa-
vllle , cutting into the middle of a sen
tence. Thcro was a moment's pauso.
and then came the answer slow and
" 'I 'cut in' on the wire two days ago ,
and have secured a good deal of information
mation , but I might have got more if I
had only kept my mouth ( key ) shut.
Good-by , Alf. I am going. ' There was
a sudden click of the wire , and then the
"Ellsworth was the celebrated con
federate operator who accompanied John
Morgan In his raids through Kentucky
and Ohio. Savillo and ho had worked
together before the war , and had become
familiar with each other's stylo. "
