Drury college , at Spdntrfiold , wlioro
Bho cnnturcd nil the prizes in the art
department. She aspired to new hon

to the St. Louis art .school. This ho
was not able to do , and she ran away ,
drebbcd in a suit of her brother's
clothes , nnd with KJO of Ills money.
She walked three miles one night to
the railroad station and reached St.
Louts without being detected ,

Tlio Story of Two Women.
Globe-Democrat : Two stories of
beautiful women appear at the same
time. Ono is from Chicago , and she
took to the fashionable plan of secret
cigarette smoking , and now is n beauti
ful idot ; the other is a San Francisco
woman , who took a sponge bath every
morning , and a four-mile walk after
lunch. The latter is the mother of two
children , and although thirty , looks
like eighteen. Moral for the ladies :
If you wish to preserve your youth nnd
beauty , take long walks and regulat
baths ; but lot cigarettes and other silly
fashions alone. The Chicago woman
has , however , the most imitators and
followers , and the San Francisco woman
has the most admirers. There 4s no
reason why a beautiful woman should
not be beautiful till sixty.
Hlio I'ltlloil tlio Dentist's Tooth.
Now York World : A novel election
bet was paid at El Paso , To.xng , u few
days ago. A few weeks before election
n democratic dentist was operating upon
the ivorioa of the wife of a loading re
publican of this city. A dibcusslon led
to a wager , the terms of which were
that if Cleveland were elected the lady
should return to the dentist for moro
dental work , while if Harrison was vic
torious the dentist agreed to allow the
lady to extract one of his ( the dentist's )
teeth. Yesterday the lady , armed with
n big pair of "horso" forceps and ac
companied by homo friends , wont to the
dentist's ollino to claim the wagor.
Neither the dentist nor any of the spec
tators seemed to think that the lady
would really claim the forfeited tooth ,
but as she showed an inclination to dose
so the dentist adjusted his chair , look
his seat and pointed outtho molar which
lie proposed to sacrifice.
The lady seized her forceps , where
upon her female companions all fled
from the room. She fastened the for
ceps upon the tooth and gave a pull.
The forcopsfjlippod oil. Thou the den
tist told her she must give the forceps
a little twist , instead of merely pulling
at the tooth , and ho showed her how.
Again she grasped the tooth , gave the
requisite twist and pull , and , to the
astonishment of the onlookers , she hold
the tooth up bcforo them.
WOMHMI'H Clubs ,
Philadelphia Times : The talk of a
club house for women in New York
is having its periodic revival. It will
come to nothing. There is no organi
zation in the city with energy enough
to shoulder such a project. English
women have shown themselves thus
far more clubbable than their Ameri
can sisters. There nro two or three
women's clubs In London which
embody most of the features over which
New Yorkers argue. There is no
pleasanter way of getting rid of an
afternoon in London than by spending
It at the Victoria club , whoso house on
Old Cavendish street is n club house in
the strict son so of the term. The Vic
toria is not n largo club , and its rates
are high enough to restrict Its member
ship to women of umplo Incomes , but it
is thoroughly organized and bikes
n very genuine pleasure in its recap
tion parlors , iU library and reading
rooms , Its tea room and its pretty suites
of bed rooms where country members
lodge on trips to town , and where unat
tached women sometimes board the year
round. Drop lu at U o'clock on any
bright day and you will get an oyo-illi-
iug vision of violets in brown bowls ,
yellow tulips nodding over the heads of
Ionia in silver dishes , dancing eyes
pooping from behind news papersfeath
prs , furs and contentedly occupied fem
The Somcr\ullo club Is the best known
of women's clubs in London. Its dues
are still only $2.60 a year , and its mem
bership includes the duchess of Ports
mouth , Lndv Gray and n number of ti
tled folk , with Mrs. Mllliccnt Garrett
Fawcott , Francis Power Cobbo , Lady
Ilarberton , Dr. Elizabeth Gnrrott Andersen -
dorson , as well as a contingent of med
ical students , young literary women ,
bookkeepers and self-dependent women
of all kinds. It has furnished its rooms
in the prevailing aesthetic taste. It
has its shelves Tilled with n formidable
array of books and subscribes to a long
list of papers and magazines. It ar
ranges a regular program of lectures
und debates for the winter , and tea is
served to nny members who happen in
any afternoon at 4. The real life of the
club is in these informal droppings in.
In one corner they are discussing
Buddha , in another bonnets. The Somerville -
orville has a wider range.
London literary womou have a club
of themselves. It is the University In
Bond street , and is practically , though
not professedly , limited to authors and
professional women. It attracts a vis
itor by its cheery open fires.
The Bloomsbury club takes in women
fond of out of door lifo and gets up club
walks and country trips the season
through. It has a line erymnasium and
women practice there daily. It lias n
good billiard room.
There are several good clubs for men
nnd women jointly , ns the Alboimirla
and Junior Denison. London women
horoughly enjoy club lifo , solitary
women for its cotnpanionphip and cosi
ness , nnd married women for thoohanco
of mooting and drinking tea with girl-
ho od friends.
Foinnlo hotter Carriers.
Philadelphia Record : It has boon
whispered , faintly but clearly , that the
postal service may bo reorganized under
the now administration. First comes
the rumor of the discharge of many lot-
carriers , and then follows the startling
report that the servers of mail are to bo
replaced in part by pctticoatod female
loiter carriers. This is un appalling
m-ospcd , and the possibilities of trouble
for unwary young men and frisky old
mon seem lo bo limitless.
Imagine girls toddling around the
streets currying bags and bundles of
letters. Imaglno the awful possibilities ,
and also the great advantages that will
bo thrown in their way , Every time a
venerable business man , who has grown
pray during the years lie has served as
deacon and a dutiful husband , shall got
n little square envelope , daintily
been ted , the fomnlo lottar carrier would
wink a sly wink and the venerable mer
chant would bo obliged to liund over a
dollar at least or take a trip out of
lown. If ho should not settle up the fe
male letter carrier might go nnd inter
view his wifo. In this way the young
girl of to-day may secure a brilliant
future for herself.
The female' loller-carrlor will also bo
able to utilize her position in other
directions. If her follow should open
correspondence with other girls she
could ( ind it out und go and pull their
hair. By appropriating letters ad
dressed to the pretty girl who llvos n
few doors below her she can find out all
about the rod-headed chap who calls
there so frequently , and soltlo forever
her suspicions that the red-headed man
is none other than n collector for an In
stalment clothing house , from whence
came that now silk dross , If the female
lottor-corricr is smart she can also draw
a weekly stipend , the prlco of her
silence , from many of tloalleged | board-
ing-houao keepers , who Uavo so many
boarders who como homo late at night.
Thus the female letter-carrier may
enjoy the perquisites that are now the
common property of ovory-day police
men.After having been in service for a
brief time slio will Und put that letters
intended for married women are mailed
by the senders so aso arrive during
the husband's absence , and she will also
learn the motives of the reputable busi
ness man who lias his private corre
spondence addressed to the place where
ho buys his cigars.
There is no end to what might bo
learned by those female letter carriers
when once initiated into the business.
They will also have the advantage of
getting all their own mail direct from
the hands of Uncle Sam himself , as it
wore , and if an intornccino war among
the carriers themselves could bo
averted the girls might own the town.
They would own it to such an extent
that in a comparatively short space of
time the mail bervico would bo practic
ally crippled , and the postmaster would
have so little confidence in his carriers
thnt ho would bo obliged to deliver his
own letters , oven if they were to go out
How Women Becomn Masons.
Now York World : Tlio publication
of this story that women have
been allowed to poor behind the
veil of mystery which envelopes
Freemasonry has now added now inter
est to the legend that once on a time a
woman was initiated into the order. In
the ollico of the grand secretary of the
Grand ledge , in the Masonic temple ,
hangs an oil painting of a woman dressed
in Masonic regalia. It was presented to
Colonel Ehlors , and is a portrait of
Hon. Mrs. Aldworth , thohoroino of this
legend. She is t-a'd to have received
about the year 1735 the first and second
degrees of Freemasonry in Ledge No.
41 , Donorailo , Ireland. The circum
stances of this initiation were first pub
lished in Cork in 1807 , and it is
claimed that they were substantiated
by an oyo-witness to the ceremony.
Subsequently they appeared in
a memoir published by Spencer , the
celebrated Masonic blblopolo , in Lon
don. Mrs. Aldworth , nee Elizabeth St.
Loger , was the youngest child and only
daughter of the first Viscount Donorailo
of Ireland. The ledge In which she
was initiated was an aristocratic ledge
consisting principally of the gentry
nnd most res | > bctiiblo and wealthy in
habitants of the country around Done
railo. The I communications were
usually hold in the town , but during
the mastership of Lord Donorailo ,
brother of Mrs. Aldworth , the meetIngs -
Ings wore hold ] at Donorailo house , his
residence. Spencer relates this story
of the atTnir : i
"It happoned'on ' this particular occa
sion that the ledge was hold in a room
separated from unolhor by stud und
brickwork , The young lady being
giddy nnd thoughtless , determined to
gratify her curiosityund made arrange
ments accordingly. With a pair of
scissors as she herself related to the
mother of our informant she removed
a portion of a brick from the wall , and
placed herself so as to command a full
view of everything which occurred in
the next room. She thus witnessed the
first two degress in Masonry , which was
the extent of the proceedings of the
ledge that night.
"Becoming awuro from what she hoard
that the brothorn were , about to sepa
rata , she felt allvo to the awkwardness
und danger of her situation und began
to consider how she would retire with
out observation. She became nervous
and agitated and nearly fainted , but so
far recovered herself as to bo fully
aware c ( the necessity of withdrawing
as quickly as possible. Being In the
dark she btumblod and overthrew something -
thing a chair or some ornamental
piece of furniture. The crash was loud
and the tiler , who was on the lobby or
landing on which opened the doors
both of the lodge-room , and that where
the young lady was , gave the alarm ,
burst open the door , and , with a light
in one hand and a sword in tlio
other , appeared to the terrified and
fainting lady , lie was soon joined by
the members of the ledge present , anil
luckily , for it is asserted that but for
the prompt appearance of her brother ,
Lord Donerailc , and other cool mem
bers , her lifo would have fallen a sacri
fice to what was then esteemed her
crime. Finally tlio matter was com
promised by initiating the lady in the
mysteries of Froomusonry , and from
that time woinon became eligible to the
Ijffe in tlio Whlto JlouHc.
Milwaukee Sentinel : Perhaps lady
readers might like to know something
of the experiences which Mrs. Harrison
will have when she reaches Washing
ton as the wife of tlio president. Will
she pack simply her trunks with wear
ing apparel and move Into a house com
pletely furnished and filled with beds
and bedding , silver anil tnblowonr.
servants nnd cooking utensils , or will all
or any of these have to bo brought along
or provided after she gets there ? That
is a ( lucslion very often asked , and with
it a good many others , as to horHes and
carriages , coachmen and waiting-maids ,
cost of and payment for the necessaries
f the kitchen and dining - om , etc. It
is n curious fact that all the cabinet olH-
cors are furnished with horbos and car
riages nt government oxpom-o , but that
the president is not. The cabinet otll-
cors are furnished hordes , carriages and
coaohtnon , and the horbes nro kept at
government oxponbo. If the president
want any of those things ho must sup
ply them himself. There is a
stable near the whlto house ,
built during Grant's time , with
plenty of room for horses , but every
president who comes finds it empty.
And of course it costs him lots of money
to fill it. Whoever sells a horse or cur-
ringo to the president of the United
States expects to got about y per cent
more for it than ho would if ho sold it
elsewhere. Of coni'bO the president
must have three or four carriages and
several houses. Whether Gondral Harrison
risen will bring any with him or buy
them is not known. Possibly ho will
buy now carriages , and of course a pres
ident's horsai must bo thoroughbreds.
And ho need not expect much of thorn
after ho gets through his term In the
white house either , for Washington
pavements are hard on hoi BOB , as Presi
dent Cleveland's big soal-Drowns show.
The president is also obliged to furnish
his own ill1 Ivor. Albert Hawkins , a big
colored man whom Grant brought hero
before ho became president , is htill
driving at the white house , as ho 1ms
done over since Grant's term , nnd will
probably bo re-engaged by Mr. Harri
son , hut if ho doob it will be at Ins own
expensefor the government does not
pay Albert's salary.
Inside the white house Mrs. Harrison
will find employes waiting to bo ro-on-
gagcd and paid for their borvicod. The
steward , who lias charge of the kitchen
nnd dining room , the various subordi
nates who sweep and dust and cook and
attend to the table and table wnro
they nro all private employes. Down
in the basement , if you puss at the
proper time , you BOO the laundry work
of the white liouao going on. All those
employes are , however paid privately.
Of course , there is n yearly appropria
tion for the contingent expenses of the
white house , but tins U intended more
to keep up the furniture nnd furnish
ings generally than to pay the cost of
the president's living or the hire of his
One thing that Mrs , Harrison will
find is a completely furnished hou&e
solid silver , the finest of china , linen
for the tables _ and bed chambers , ele
gant furnishings in the parlors and
fairly good in the private parts of the
houbc. The private dining room is on
the first floor , just across the
hall from the state dining room
This is the only room on the
first floor used by the family of the
president. The parlors are unod for
callersand the on tire family or "living"
rooms are on the second floor. There
are , perhaps , half a dozen of these ,
sciircoly more ; a sitting room or two
near to the circular "library room , "
whore the president sits during his
business and working hoursand several
handbomely furnished bed rooms and
dressing rooms. An elevator carries
the family down-stair's at meal time ,
and when they go down for other uur-
poses if they desire it ; as a rule they
walk up and down the broad , easy and
luxuriously carpeted stairs and through
the handsome and always-attractive corridors
riders which lead the way to the dining
rooms and parlors on the first floor
Tlioro they find everything ready , for
tlio experienced steward is able to re
lieve the mistress of the white house of
all the cares of housekeeping if ho is
well paid for it.
