A man will lie to protect another far
eooner than a woman will. Lying is
secondary to a man's nature , Man is
born Inconsistent in all things in love
affairs , his politics , religion and busi
ness affairs. Women can't ho success
fully , they can keep a secret when their
own happiness is involved , but they
Is can't act and out live a lie. If they

i they are sure to confess it on their

business largo enough to em

Man is inconsistent somewhere in his
life. Women love independence and
they never abuse it. It is not un innuto
nobility that makes man love virtue in
woman , but his over-educated selfish

nrneHscU to Oxen.
Washington Post : I can never forgot
the feeling of astonishment mingled
with shame with which I first looked
upon u woman harnessed side by side
with an ox. It was on a lonely road in
Switzerland , near the Italian frontier.
Night had already set in , and the bon
fires lighted , by woodmen on the steep
mountain sides , hundreds of feet above
my head , gave scarcely light enough to
pick a way over the rocky road. I hur
ried on to reach the next village , and
in my hurry almost ran into a huge mass
of moving hay. A woman was pulling
that hay. and an ox not her husband
was helping her. On the same road I
overtook a number of women who looked
like veritable walking hay stacks.
Strapped on their backs were funnel-
like contrivances into which hay was
stacked to a height of live or-ix feet. The
men , who kindly fill the funnels that
their wives carry , fill the hny so high
that the poor women fairly stagger
under the load. For this severe labor
the present women of Switzerland and
Germany earn from thirtv " to thirty-five
cents a day. They take "their babies ,
their bread and their bcor to the fields ,
wield the scythe all day long , then
creep buck to their hovels under their
huge loads and go to bed to get up at 4
next morning to go through another
twelve or fourteen hours of similar
drudgery. I have scon women in Bul
garia threshing gram with sticks a
very slow and laborious process , and
none tbo more pleasant for thu burning
sun that beats down on that semitropical
cal country. While they wora engaged
in this work their brothers and hus
bands sat on the shady side of their
thatched huts and dozed or minded the
children as the humor struck them ,
Evidently , in the Bulgaria peasants'
opinion , woman's sphere is where the
hardest work is to he done.
In Heidelberg I made the acquaint
ance of an honest rod cheeked woman
who mudo her living selling milk. She
had a small cart that held two six gallon
cans. To this cart she hitched herself
and a dog and made her rounds from
house to house selling milk at 6 cents a
quart. This queer team stopped before
the door of my lodgings , punctually
every morning at 0 o'clock ' mid while I
chatted a. moment with the Gorman
fruu the dog would lie down in his har
ness to rc"st. The frau and her husband
wcro trying to save enough to bring
them to America. The husband was a
shoemaker , hut somehow never managed
to save anything. There was not much
profit in milk , still she would bo very
careful and hoped to have enough some
day. Once in America she bolt sure that
her und Hans could get along. It is
doubtful whether the poor woman with
all her economy and toil will over reach
her goal. Many months afterward when
I was in Heidelberg she was there still ,
hitched with her dog in the car , Boiling

A Now Club for London Women.
London Letter to the Philadelphia
Telegraph : A now club for ladies WPE
opened last Tuesday at No. 231 Oxford
street. It is not the first of its kind in
London , for the Alexandria club , in
Bond street , has boon moat successful ,
and has now boon obliged to remove to
larger quarters. Two or three bed
rooms are at the disposal of country
members , while the reading-room ,
drawing-room and diuing-roomuro very
much affected by Its town supporters ,
A hook is always kept , in which mem
bers write their suggestions for im
provements to the club , and among
thcbo are to be found many 'requcsti
for u billiard room , while not a fcv ,
ladies clamor eagerly for a retreat
wharo they can smoke mild cigarettes
nt their case. One frequently sees sev
eral cavaliers , like Peris at the jrato
of pnradihC. waiting at the doors of the
club for bomo fair member , for no man
is allowed to enter the wicred precincts
in which their sweethearts and wives
rejoice. At the opening of the Somerville -
villo club last Tuesday , the committee
gave an afternoon "at homo , ' to which
a few members of the sterner BOX came ,
out of curiosity to boo the roonib , and
probably to bticoi1 at the idea of women
appreciating any place to which they
are not admitted. It is strange how
completely dependent on the lords of
creation wo are supposed to bo , yet how
little they know the thorough enjoy
ment girls deriyo from the society of
their female friends , and how entirely
they manage to dismiss the tyrant man
from their thoughts.
Girls Training for n Walking Match.
In this great city of dudes and bood-
lers it is not the general fashion to getup
up at 0 o'clock in the morning and roam
around in the parks. But the Nww
York Telegram's Bon Franklin re
porter was out with the lark this rare
April morning. While dilating his
nostrils with joy at the lovely scene of
morning light warming up the rich
brown of the trees , ho unintentionally
baw a flock of remarkably pretty girls
armed with riding whips. What the
dickens they wanted of riding whips
was something that remained to bo
found out. Was it for protection and
style ? Yes , it was. The girls were
well dressed , with rosy cheeks , spark
ling eyes and the jjlow of health blush
ing under their skin like the beauty of
An astonishing thing about the girls
was their bilenco. Not a word did they
utter , but oh , my , how they walked
walked as if they wore training for a
six-days' go-ns.-jou-please race. They
wore stout walking shoes with thick
Their tailor-made dresses wcro not
pulled back , but swunp loosely and com
fortable as they btrodo by Other
groups of girls were seen. Some wore
escorted by big dogs , who tugged at
their chains , compelling their mis
tresses to keep up a lively gait.
A jolly policeman who btood on the
drive overlooking the lake touched his
cap to the young ladies as they glided
"You did not think Now York gals
got up so early , oh ? " said the officer ,
with a merry chuckle. "Why , bless
you , they've got more sand in their
heels than all the knock-kneed dudes
on Fifth avenue. "
"Who are they and why do they walk
at a 2:40 : pace BO early in the morning ? "
"They're from young lady walk in
clubs , " said the officer , "that's what
they are , and if there was more on 'em
and less all night dancin' , there \\ould
not be to many rich undertakers. Thorn
gals como into the park every mornin'
in good weather. They're ladies every
inch on 'cm. They usually como in at
the Fifty-ninth street entrance and
make for the Mall. Then they go up
the lake path and out by the boulevard
entrances. There seems to bo a rule
among thorn not to do any talkin' till
the got through their constitutional.
Kinder hard on the pretty dears , "
chuckled the policeman , "but if they
got to talkin' they'd do no wnlkin * .
There's more o' them this spring than
over before , and I must sny thoy's the
healthiest gals I over BOO. They can
walk , too ; and don't you forgot it.
Whether they like early mornin' because -
cause there's so few people in the park ,
or it touches up their appetites for
breakfast , I can't say , but I do know
they are the real ladies of the hull
Women as Studcntx.
A j'oung woman , now n student nt
Columbia college , writes to the current
number of Woman concerning the trials
of the girls who are attempting to get
u collegiate training in thin city. She
says : "It is some four years and a half
since women first invaded the sanctity
of the college. The first to cross the
threshold must have been very cour
ageous. I remember only two and n
half years ago when I joined the small
army of a baucr's dozen , and what n
bravo defense was made against us by
the aborigines. * * * The invading
army has triumphed. That is to say ,
women are now floating in and out of
the buildings amidst the crowd of men
who don't relish their presence hut
can't exactly prevent it. The triumph
aflor all is a meagre one , Does any ono
know I wonder , under what difficulties
a woman is obiitrod to take her examin
ations at Columbia ? At the beginning
of every term she is permitted
to BOO a professor who instructs
her ns to her courho of study for the
ensuing term. Ho tells her what he
thinks will be the work of the boys ; but
many a time thu boys accomplish a little
more , or take dilleront work after all ,
and the poor woman comes to her exam
ination utterly unprepared , President
Barnard 'is considered the guardian
angel of the women ; to him they fly for
protection , which they always find. But
' " " is
unfortunately the president's "yea"
not always "yea" to the professors.
Even their examinations women have
been obliged to take in a room where n
class of boys wore orally reciting , and
they wore obliged to fasten their atten
tion en their own examination while a
blind man was being orally examined
on the same subject in the same room
not two yards away. It speaks well foi
the perseverance of the women thai
twenty-eight nro at present golnfi
through this in the hope of some daj
obtaining more. At first the prqfesson
were too courteous to the h'olplesi
women. They all expressed their deter
mination never to "interfere with the
bwcot will of a woman , " but since some
couple of degrees have been given to
witmeti the professors and male students
generally have awakened up to the fact
that superficiality in the women stu
dents means imputation of the cholnr-
ship of Columbia , and now the pro
fessors are very severe on the women.
There is on foot a movement to found
an annex to the college where women
can attend the lectures of professors
and take a thorough collegiate course.
At present there is no place in this city
where women can take a complete col-
ItgSato course. "
Girls Who Write.
Miss Ethel Ingalls , the daughter of
the president of the bonato , has entered
upon journalism as a profession , bays
the New York Tribune , and has for
tome monthb been writing articles for
the newspapers. See has recently had
an article accepted by oneof the New
York monthlies , which will bo hand-
bomoly illustrated and published in the
Mav number. Mibs Dawes , daughter
of the senator from Massachusetts , has
long been n frequent contributor to the
magazines , and was ortco regularly at
tached to a newspaper ; at her home in
Pittsfield. She has also published ono
or two books. Mrs. Harriet Taylor
Upton , daughter of. Representative
Ezra B. Taylor , of Ohio , the successor
of Gnrficld in the house ,
is albo a writer of reputation ,
but most of the work of her pen has
been in the line of juvenile literature.
Miss Footo , the sister-in-law of Senator
Ilawley , is well known in literature and
is the regular correspondent of the In
dependent in Washington. Mrs. Do
Koven , the daughter of Senator Far-well
of Illinois , has literary ambition and
considerable talent. She has contributed
frequently to the columns of the Chicago
cage papers and has won considerable
local reputation as a writer. Mibs Cut-
cheon , the sister of the member from
Michigan is an accomplished writer and
is the regular correspondent of the wes
tern papers. Miss Edmunds.tho daugh
ter of the senator from Vermont , is an
accomplished artist , [ and Miss Cannon ,
the daughter of the representative from
ne performer on the violin.
A Graceful Tumble.
It is becoming enough of a practice to
warrant chronicling that the extreme
belles of Now York bociety , says the
Sun , those who are never content unless
they are doing something that is far in
advance of the generality of rich young
women , are now learning and practis
ing the art of posing at all times. A
class in gymnastics has about twenty-
five pupils , and the ostensible training
received from their master is in the use
of dumb bells and Indian clubs , hut
once a week ho gives instructions to
thorn in noses. Ho tolls thorn that
they should acquire the knack of never
taking awkward positions , whether
walking , Bitting or lying. Ho assures
them that if they icarn thoroughly how
to do it they will eventually take grace
ful positions unconsciously , and so ho
puts them through a great variety of
postures. Ho shows them how to take
a beat in a chair or rise from it ; how to
half recline on a sofa , or lie flat on a
couch ; and ho oven gives them instruc
tions how to save themselves from awk
wardness when they fall.
"It is not the bruise or sprain that
hurts a woman when she sprawls in the
street , " he said , "half BO much as the
hurt to her pride. If she knows that
the witnesses of her misstep are struck
by a picturesque succession of pretty
poses as she drops from the perpendicu
lar to the horizontal , she can stand all
the damage with equanimity. "
Therefore on6 of the exercises which
ho prescribes for his young Indies is to
fall on mattresses in a row. They are
made to drop forward , backward and
bidowise , until they are able to go down
in any direction in a sightly manner.
Airs. Cleveland's PonleH.
The president has so far relented from
his original determination ns to buy for
his wife u pretty phaeton , with a seat
behind for the groom , and a pair of
small brown horses for her exclusive
use , and thereby hangs a talc says the
Washington correspondent of the Phila
delphia North American. A man in
Richmond wrote a pathetic letter to the
president not long since , which by boino
inadvertence on the part of the wise
"private secretary , " fell into his own
hands. In it the man wont on to say
that ho had married a young and beau
tiful girl three months before , and had
bought for her , with many fond
anticipations , a pair of horses.
for which ho had searched
the south over , and she drove them for
a few weeks , and then , on returning
from n drive ono afternoon , died sud
denly in his arms from heart disease.
He could not bear to see these remind
ers of a happy past any more , and Mrs.
Cleveland was the only woman into
whoso hands ho was willing to have
them fall. He concluded by Baying that
ho was too poor to give them to her , but
he wanted her to have these treasures
of his pretty dead wife. The president ,
without having seen the horses at all ,
telegraphed to have them sent on , and
in a letter following inclosed a check
for them. They came , saw and con
quered nt once , ns they are pretty ,
gcntlo little animals , and amiling peace
Just Like Women ,
The peculiarity that so many women
have of hiding things is much moi'o
general than might bo supposed , and
hundreds of women keep it up nil their
lives. There is a well-known woman
of fashion in Philadelphia says the
Times , with a house full of servants ,
who never lots ono como in her bed
room except when she is there , and she
does most of the dusting and "fixing"of
that room herself. " The reason is
that in the corners of cablnots , inside
vases , in this drawer and that , or in a
wall pocket or some hanging ornament
she has distributed about every jewel
and valuable trinket she owns. No
ono knows just whore each article is
but herself and she thinks that their
safety is accordingly assured. Stick
ing money under the covers of tables
and oven between mattresses is n com
mon trick among women , and the prac
tice of putting money in the stocking is
not confined to market women and bal
lot dancers. Perhaps one-third of the
women in Philadelphia when they do
not wear them carry their diamond ear
rings around in their corsets.

CONSPIRING BY CABLE.
Luckless Jcuii Oimmy Pierced of His
Fortune Ity Distant Sliarpcrs.
Luckless Jean Dumny , white-haired
and bent , formerly a well-to-do manu
facturer living at No. 13 Boulevard
Gambcttn , Nimes , Franco , came all the
way to this country last week to punish
conspirators who have wrung from him
his little fortune and left his family im
poverished , says the Now York Herald :
Seldom has a moro dramatic story
been told in brief cables than that
which induced the old man to part with
his money. It was for the honor of his
boy , and it was given willingly , oven to
the last cent.
Now ho has got the alleged conspira
tors to whom it was sen t.
A French chef , Gustavo Dcraud , who
was employed by Mr. W. W. Astor , is
under arrest charged with being the
principal in the nefarious scheme that
ruined Dumay , nnd his accomplice , bo-
liovcd to have been the supple tool , is
alleged to bo Jean Gouat.
Bcraud has u young and fascinating
wifo. She figucs in the case.
Was she in the conspiracy ?
The lawyers hint so , but no charge
has boon made against hor.
Jean Gouat was brough up in the town
of Nimos , with Henri , BOH of Jean
Dumay. Both are young mon , the
former twenty-two years of ago , two
years older than his companion. Gra
duated from school , the young follows
determined to seek their fortunes in
Amoi-ica , and they came over together
in October last.
They secured board with Boraud and
his wife , whoso homo was then at No.
104 East Thirty-eighth street. Sus
ceptible young Henri , it is said , bccumo
smitten with thu voluptuous charms of
his landlord's pretty wife , and on December -
comber 10 both disappeared from the
Their intimacy had long been no
ticeable , and the infatuation of the
youth led him a few days prior to de
clare his love , The couple wcro after
ward heard from in Philadelphia.
Meanwhile there had begun a most re
markable cable correspondence between
Dumay pero in Nimos and Dcraud and
Gouat in this city.
Hero is a cnblegiam that startled the
old'gentleman nnd hroko the hearts of
Henri's loving mother and sister.
"NKW YOKK , Dec. 20.To Jean

This followed the same day :
"Donotbojfrigtlioned. Send telegram
addressed 'Grandfather. ' Henri at
Pittsburg. Letters follow.
The distraction of the Dumay family
nt the receipt of these surprising dis
patches may bo surmised it could
hardly bo described. But the father
replied in despair ns follows :
"Impossible to send 0,000f , at present.
Soon ns possible. "
No. 4 gave nn added pang to the young
man's parents. It arrived at onco. 11
"Boraud hands mo telegram. Impos
sible to arrange matter. Do the possible
and impossible to telegraph money. Too
much time lost already , I fear. Sorry
for you. "GOUAT. "
That stirred the sorrowing old man to
action. and ho made strenuous endeavors
to arrange for the sale of his worldly
possessions , with the result that his
business was closed out at a complete
sacrifice , and ho telegraphed an order
for fl.OOOf. ( $1,148.32) ) to Boraud , leaving
himself penniless and his little family
in want. Bnt on the next day his heart
was bomowhat gladdened by the cheer
ing news from Boraud :
"Calm yourself. The prosecutions
are ended. If I can bring your son back ,
I .advance money for his return to
Franco. If ho is mndo n soldier here h
will end badly. " Ho does not want to
work. I nm ruined by him. Letters
follow. BEKMJD. "
Hafl the conspirators been satisfied to
cease operations at this point all might
have been well for them , and the crime
not discovered. Boraud scorns to have
got his hand in at sending lengthy
cablegrams , and this ono roacho : ! Nimes
two days after on December 24 :
"Lawyer sends formal withdrawal.
Money received. My life is ruined , for
yocr son to abduct wife of his benefac
tor , mo. Obliged to sell everything.
Crazy with grief. Money received docs
not pay half for us. I forgot momen
tarily to say I will make your unfortun-
nto son take first steamer. Hope ho will If
have remorse some day. "BisiiAUD. " M
On the day that Boraud sent his tele
gram of the 22d there reached Now
York nn appeal that must have touched
the heart of a less remorseless scamp.
It read :
"Wo Bond nt once sum demanded.
Wo supplicate and pray the person in
terested to have pity on a family in do-
suair. Henri's sister bogs it on her
knees. "HONOitiNK DUMAY. "
Bernud's final telegram awoke suspi
cions in the mind of Dumay.
"Hero was this man , " ho said , yester
day , "posing as my dear BOII'B bonefat-
tor , as trying to save him from the
threatened prosecutions of some ono un
known. Suddenly ho drags in himself
as tbo injured ono. 'For your son to
abduct wife of his benefactor , mo , ho
says , and 'Money received does not pay
half for us. ' ' 'What does it all mean' ? '
I asked myself. "
Dumay laid the matter before the au
thorities of his native place , who ad
vised him to communicate with thq
French consul at New York. Before ho
got an answer to his letter word was re
ceived from Henri. The young man
made no mention of trouble , nnd this still
urthor increased his father's belie !
that ho had been imposed upon. Then
came a response from the French con
sulate telling Dumay to como to this
city. Ho arrived here last week prac
tically without means. At the ofllco of
the French consul the old man was di
rected to the law firm of Stahlnccknr &
Coudort and the French government Is
now assisting in the prosecution of Bo-
ruud and Gouat.
On the day after the 0,000f. were sent
to Bornud the chef's young wife re
turned from Philadelphia and was joy
fully received into the arms of her hus
band and amicable relations have since
existed between thorn. They removed
to No. 112 East Thirty-second street.
These facts and a good many others
that have not been made public wore
learned by the diligent lawyers in the
case nnd it was also ascertained that
young Gouat was engaged as a fresco
painter for a man named liegeman of
Lawyer Stahlncckor and Court Officer
Hnrrick , of the Tombs squad , drove out
there Wednesday night , having with
them Dumay pore , Gouat was met on
the way homo from work and promptly
arrested. When ho saw the father of
his former sqhool follow and voyager
ho turned palo with evident fear and
broke down. Ho accused Bemud of
having planned the schema and said
the latter had got the monoy.
Boraud was arrested at his homo yes
terday morning just as ho was prepar-
paring to start for Mr. Aster's to get up
an appetizing bill of fare for the morn
"Why am I arrested ? " ho asked.
"For conspiracy in getting 0,000f.
from Joan Dumay. "
"Gouat got the money , " the prisoner
replied , shrugging his shoulders. "I
go with you. J am innocent. "

were charged with conspiracy , They
