uldurutlou for her , bo imnkodly palito nnd a

follow * lo a pi cut extent sot forms , it shou !
huvo its origin In affection for the Individuu
or , In a inoro gonoinl way , in oonsiderutlc
for others. Politeness in society bctwec
acquaintances or friends is demanded by cu
tout , Tlioro is no need to remind rcade ;
that it should bo exhibited. Politeness nt
homo nnd between near relatives , oven bo-
twccn husband nnd wife , though of much
more importance In every way , is not o ob
viously necessary , and is too often neglected.
Gentlemen of what is known ns the "old
school" were nnd are scrupulous In the ob
servance of pollto society toward their wives
nnd other female relatives and In the homo
circle , but later generations seemed disposed
to treat relatives with less formality and re
spect than Is habitually shown to strnneers
and acquaintances. The tendency should bo
resisted , however , nnd every encouragement
given In the homo circle to an observance of
the rules of pollto society , modified only by n
spontaneous exhibition of that greater affec
tion which exists between the members of a
family group. _
The Western Art Association.
The coinmltteo having charge of the forth
coming spring exhibition of the Western Art

cided advantage to the professional artists of
the city. Another and capital innovation
that the association has made in this connec
tion is the drawing of pictures. Half the
proceeds from the sale of the season tickets
is to bo set nsido for the purchase direct from

The splendid exploit of the ofllccrs of the
Missouri in taking off inoro than seven hun
dred pcoplo from the sinking ship and landIng -
Ing them safely makes i ; evident that the
chlof hope for n steamer disabled in mid-
ocean is to got into a route where she will be
sighted by other steamers nblo to carry lie :
HvlnL' freight says the Now York Herald.
If an understanding existed among trans
atlantic steamship companies that their vcs-
less would , ut least In the stormy months ,
follow definite routes varied , of course , tc
suit the changes of iho seasons the Nortl ;
Atlantic would bo robbed of half its perils
Just ns the safety of travelers crossing the
Sahara is immensely increased if they Kcer
in the regular caravan route , equally wouh
the safety of lifo nt sea bo Increased If the
great steamship fleets adhere to definite anc
advertised routes ,
It is to bo hoped that the International
Marino conference , which meats at Wash
ington In October , will earnestly considei
the Importance of this suggestion , The Her
ald tins inoro than once proposed that there
should bo at intervals of ten degrees certain
defined crossings in the transatlantic routes
to which all passenger steamers should agree
to approach in each passage near enough t <
sight any vessel at the crossing. A dl sablci
vessel , by making for ono of these crossings ,
would thus in u fgw hours bo overtaken by
ono or inoro powerful stotuushljj ? . Possibly
this plan of "roliof nre.is" would entail less
delay on steamers generally than the adop
tlon of the "lane" routes.

A lady , well known in the fashionable
world of Now York and Newport , who
is at present vibiting San Francisco ,
said , according to the Examiner of that
city , when asked about the betrothal of
an American professional beauty. Miss
Jennie Chamberlain , to a captain in the
English army : "I think the story is
true. C.iptain Laylor Leiland is a man
of good family , who was formerly in the
Ninth Lancers , a crack regiment. Ho
is not a man of wealth , but Miss Cham
berlain lias a competency , inherited , erin
in prospective , from her grandfather in
Cleveland , O. Miss Chamberlain made
her mark in bociety very rapidly. She
went from her Cleveland homo to Newport -
port in the summer of 18SO or 1881 , and
signalized herself by appearing at a
morning lawn tennis p.irty in a costume
of purple velvet. A friend hinted that
her taste needed correction , and being
a girl of sense , she took the suggestion
in good part and adapted herself to the
fashions of her now acquaintances. The
next season she visited London , became
conspicuous in the prince of Wale's sot
and has since shone as a bright , partic
ular star at London , Pais , Ilomburg
and other fashionable resorts. Her
match with Captain Leiland will disap
point her friends , who expected a cor
onet for her at the very least.

her cousin , Mrs. William Caboll ,

crowned with the rare auburn lockfl so
ovcd by Titian , for this was the Im-
ire < < sli > n 1 had received ot her from
vhat I had read ot this far-famed Vir
ginia beauty. I have scarcely recov
ered from tno surprise I o.xporioncoil
vlicii I saw her , and I was in doubt for
omo tlmo as to whether I was not bo
ng imposed upon. Nearly ovorythitifj
hnvo read aoout her seems to bo a
complete contradiction , or else she lin-
ircBsod mo differently. In the first
ilaco she is short , with a pretty flguro ,
and her hair is yellow. Her eyes is her
nost'notleoablo feature , and she alone
s the power to describe them.
riiey are dreamy , unfathomable oycs
shaded by such long , curly , davk
nshea that their color Is lost.
Jonenth their brows they shine outliko
irollies , yet betraying a nnturo tondoi *
mil sympathetic. Every feature is ox-
iressive. , llor mouth is as sensitive as
i child's waiting to cry or to smile.
Whether speaking or listening , every
omotimf ligjits her face. It is said that
she is dramatic and self-conscious , I
saw no trace of either during the mo-
nonts I watched her and talked with
mr. For everyone who was presented
0 her she had a pleasant greeting , and
n her speech she was not at nllatTcutod.
Could yon have heard , as I did , her
conversation with two young girls. , you
vould not have recognized in her any
thing theatrical. Her horse , "with its
; roat , knowing eyes , " her much-loved
jollio , tno long , ilroamy rides through
ho old Virginia hills , and her girl
riends were the subjects which aha
alked about as simply as any child. I
iskod her when she worked , and she
said : "In the silent night hours , when
everything is still. 1 cannot work in
, ho daytime ; I want to bo out in the
rosh air. " Her next book will bo
called "White Slaves , " the plot being
aken from ovory-day life. This will
lot bo completed for two years , as bho
s going abroad soon to bo gone a long

ride horseback through- England , for
which purpose her favorite horse will

Miss Sallie lltirgous is a pronounced
immotto , somewhat , pallid of face , with
urge eyes of a deep violet , shaded with
swooping , coal block lashes , and a
wenltli of soft , wavy hair , says the Now

the Spanish order or beauty , wherein
she dilTors from Miss Wright , who is
mroly Scandinavian. Miss Hargous 13
lot tall , yet anything but short ; not
thin , yet anything but stout , Her
shoulders are round and shapely as
, hose of the Vonnsof Milo. Her llgiito ,
In a word , is perfection. She inherited
00,000 from nor father , who made his
"pile" ' in Mexico , yet she is noted for
the unprotontiouhiicgS of her manners
and the simplicity of her frocks , and it
she dances a trilio slower than the rest
she is none the less graceful , She is
unquehtionnhly the belle of the season ,
and although it is her first season she
das already refused borne seven dilTor-
ont oll'ors of marriage. She is also the
'sister of "Bobby , ' ' and will have soon
two decadcb of life on her next birthday.
Before closing this loiter your cor
respondent must not forgot to describe )
1 girl boomer , who is located on a claim
near the old bite of Ewing City , says an
Oklahoma correspondent of the Kansas
City Times. Miss Nellie Bruce is the
daughter of an old boomer. For years
her father has boon a boomer , but Nellie
lie has been tent to school until a short
time ago , when she taught a torni of
bchool in a Kansas district. Several
months ago her father built u neat
framojiouso out on a claim near the old
Jack Wantland horse corral and then
sent for his daughter. The day before
Nellie arrived some Indian scouts found
old Bruco's house and burned it down.
When the girl arrived the poor old man
with tears in his eyes told her of the
destroying of his little homo , but that
girl was clear grit , and she sho\ved her
nerve by getting out and going to worjc.
She located a claim , dug out a homo in
the side of a hill , and there f > ho lives ,
surrounded by a Hook of chickens , a
couple of dogs , and armed with a couple
of largo-si/.od revolvers , silo is holding
the fort. She is the idol of all the boom
ers , and any disrespect shown to Nellie
Bruce will bo aiibworablo with death.
Probably there is no man in the
United States who enjoys a more exten
sive acquaintance with working mem
bers of his party than Mr. Clarlcson ,
says a Washington letter to the Phila
delphia NOWH. But tlioro is another
person in this room who knows almost
as many politicians as C'larkson. Thcro
are women who have a gift for music ,
poetry , painting , society ; Mrs. Clar soii
has an aptitude for politics that amounts
almost to a gift. Thcro is no more
popular woman among the politicians ot
the country than sho. They all know
and admire hor. Probably she knows a
greater number of political secrets than
any other woman in America , and holds
them closer. Tiiat a woman can keep a
secret is well exemplified in hor. She
is a line representative of that admira
ble class of American women who ac
company their husbands everywhere ,
share their labors and conlldoncos , and
shed over the activities of business or
political life the light of a woman ? o
sympathy , cheerfulness and rollnomcnt.
MrH. C'larkson has been among poli
ticians all her life. With her husband
she has attended three or four national
conventions and has been prebont at
many of the innumerable conferences
hold in their rooms. When Mr. Clark-
son wont to Now York last summer to
labor in the national committee as a
campaign manager MM. Clarksoii ac
companied him. No secrets were kept
from her and none were ever lost
through hor. In Iowa she is known and
loved by all the politicians of the stato.
They go to her for counsel in politics or
lovo. So as she sits here for an hour in
her hiiBband'a olllco public men by the
hundred , statesmen , orators , men of
Biiccobs in politics and law , eagerly
grasp her hand. In her politics , ns in
tier husband's , tlioro is no bolllslinoaa ,
They are gvor assisting ethers , never
seeking for themselves , She in entitled
to a pJaoo with these other American
women politicians , Mrs. Logan , MrB.
McDonald of Indianapolis , and Lady
Randolph Churchill of England. Like
them she has mixed with politicians
without losing any of her womanly
grace and BweetnobS. Sim has , too ,
reared a family of boys who .arc sure to
brini , ' honor to their parents and win
Buccubs for thombclvos.
