KING ADMIRES TINY HANDS
Congratulates Lady Hesketh on Her
'Return to Health
HIS MAJESTY'S GREETING WARM
Some ! the Modern Instances of
American Women la Rnalloh Sot-let
y that Are Worthy
LONDON, Nov. 7.-Ppeclal.) Ever since
ricr blf monetary losses In Ban Francisco
Iafly Hesketh, who. of course, was Flor
ence Sharon before her marriage, has been
but little seen In society. For a long time,
too, ahe was seriously 111 so much so that
It was feared at one time that she would
never resume her former social position.
These fears are, however, at an end, and
she Is about again looking extremely pretty
and beautifully dressed. At Newmarket
the other day ahe was one of the smartest
women on the course. The king had not
seen her for a long time and directly he
caught sight of her went up and said as he
shook hands with her, "I'pon my word,
that dear little hand Is hs tiny as ever."
Lady Hesketh and Lady Charles Bores
ford hava the distinction of possessing the
smallest hands and feet of any society
women In England. Though It had been a
considerable time since King Edward had
met Lady Hesketh, he did not forget her
remarkable characteristic a fact which
flattered her very much.
Now that things are looking up In San
Francisco Lady Hesketh hopes soon to
come again Into possession of some of her
Income, the loss of which she took so ter
ribly to heart. Notwithstanding her tiny
hands, she Is a splendid whip, and in the
old days she many times had the then
prince of Wales, now the king, beside her
on the box seat of a wagonette or a mall
phaeton. She has a most Independent so
cial spirit, and has never pushed nor never
gone out of her way to seek royal favor,
and has always been very exclusive.
Misses Ilia Old Chum.
To say that the king has missed the so
cio! y of his old chum and friend Consuelo,
duchess of Manchester, Is to put It mildly.
Since the death of her mother she has been
rusticating and resting thankful for the
"excuse of her mourning to do so. Of the
scores of younger and more beautiful
women friends of Edward there Is none
jvho fills her place. Once In speaking of
her he remarked:
"Apart from the splendid spirits of the
duchess, she Is full of sympathy, r have
never met another woman with as much
common sense. She is the best pal a man
. ... Rusticating and resting have left their
' mark on her Grace. She is looking splon
"I positively don't feel an hour more
than 6 and 30," she has been telling those
who 'have welcomed her back. "But how
. long this state of things will last of course
I cannot say. One requires the constltu--
Hon of a horse to be able to keep up with
our beloved king. He Imagines that his
friends, like himself, can do with a few
hours rest, that they can sit night after
night at the bridge table and spend the
day on a race course, yet never feel
Declines to Mope.
After the death of Mrs. Trnaga, the
dowager duchess' mother, the king Insisted
on the duohess going to Biarritz. "No use
moping," ho said. "That won't bring your
mother back." She went and all the so
ciety papers and the American press men
tioned tha,t she: was "entertaining," when
a a matter of fact she was merely having
the king, who Invited himself, and a few
very old friends to dinner. Much apnoyed
at the announcements in the press, she
L showed them to Klg Edward to prove to
" him that It was absolutely impossible for
tier to go on seeing him at all while she
Avas in mourning. That was how she got
ld of his majesty for a while, for he quite
foil 1n with her views, being himself a tre
mendous stlokler when the question of cor
rect behavior is at stake.
The duchess is booked for every house
party at which the king Is a guest during
the next six months. She Is also to be
of the house party that assembles at
Sandrlngham for the queen' birthday. As
everyone knows, she Is almost as great a
friend of Alexandra as she Is of Edward.
Duchess Well Again.
There Is much Joy In the circle which
claims Lily, duchess of Marlborough for Its
own that she Is now almost completely re
covered after her serious Illness. I was
told the other day that it was l;er own In
tense anxiety lest she should die that re
tarded her progress toward health. Her
""intense desire to live la entirely due to
her little bov. "Brill" Rfrnfnri1 lout o.
ahe expressed It, "he should be left alone
In the world." She adorea this child and.
haa never for even one night been sep
arated from him. Those who were with
her during her illness say It was most pa
ir thetlo to hear her talking about the bov.
Whether waking or sleeping, his name was
rarely oft her Hps, and a captivating child
lie Is; a regular dare-devil Beresford, he
will mount anything In the shape of a
horse. He haa a pet pony which walks
upstair and during the duchess' conva
lescence she wm expected each morning to
salute "Paddle," whom little Bill used to
trot Into her room for her admiration.
Bill 1 as devoted to his mother as she Is
to htm, but he is far too young to realize
how near losing her he has been. He
was never allowed to know that she was
seriously ill at all. One day he will In
herit his mother' vast fortune, but when
he doe It will be securely tied up, as no
one knows better than the duchess the
Beresfords' capacity for making money fly,
and aa little Bill already shows many of
the characteristics of his forbears, she says
Ilia means to "protect him from himself."
Astor Astonishes Folks.
The recluse of Hever caatle, as Mr.
Astor Is cullod by his friends, has been ex
veiling himself lately by the auniptuousness
of hi entertaining. He hue given a series
of luncheons on Sundays for which each

' LADY ' MART.
ONLY KING NEVER IN DEBT
Victor Emannel of Italy the One Who
Holds that Inlqne Dis
tinction. HOME, Nov. 7.(Speclal.)-Klr.g Victor
Emanuel stands unique as the one sover
eign In the world who has never had a
debt. More remarkable still he was practi
cally free from debt as crown prince when
his finance were anything but florid.
The Italian civil list amounts to the very
respectable sum of 1, 200,000 yearly, but the
king's expense are enormous. He hands
over every year $400,000 to his mother, he
keeps up from eight to ten palace and ea
tates, which came to him from the dis
possessed Italian rulers, and he Is paying
off the debts of an extravagant father
and still more extravagant grandfather.
When he came to the throne he found that
there were many large debts on which very
high Interest was being paid, of the great
Victor Emanuel, a king In the old style,
without thought where 'spending, women
and feasting were concerned, but a hero
for courage and love of country. King
Humbert was more restrained in his pleas
ures, but thought that a king should be
a king ell through, and not look at the
pennies. Thus when his son came to the
throne he found a sad state of financial
Victor Emanuel's public point of view,
curiously enough, is that of his subjects,
that while the country Is poor its sovereign
should pay the personal family debts, and
hi private view is that a sovereign lowers
his own dignity and that of his subjects if
he runs into financial difficulties, and is
obliged to pawn his Jewels, for example.
He therefore looked about him for the
best way to raise money and came to the
i inclusion that the bourgeoisie way Is the
beat, 1. e., to cut down expenses. What a
day that was at court! W?hen he ex
pounded his plans to the minister of the
royal house, that functionary wertt about
with his eyes half out of his
head with astonishment, and is even said
to have been seen wringing his hands and
praying for a return of the good old days.
There was great astonishment, not only
In Italy but abroad, when the young sov
ereign, with over 11.000,000 income, sold
nearly 100 horses which had been eating
their heads oft at the Qulrinal palace,
only keeping those strictly necessary for
royal use. At the same time two or three
cooks were got rid of. Today the queen's
clothing, while of the best quality, is not
bought regardless of price, aa was the case
with Queen Margherlta. Furthermore,
Queen Elena's gown and hats are seen
quite three times, if not more by the pub
lic, and entertaining at the palace Is re
stricted to two balls a year, the neces
sary state dinners, and such Indispensable
functions. Despite the household econo
mies foreign sovereigns who have visited
the Qulrinal declare that they were enter
tained as well, If not better, than at any
Another of his "economies" was to turn
the royal stables, here and there. Into
paying concerns. For instance, Castelfus
ano and Castelporziano, near Ostla, on the
sea, under the late "magnificent" king
were merely passive shooting places, which
required large sums of money to keep up.
The "bourgeois" king has, with modern
methods, transformed them into money
maiting properties, which pay from 3 to 5
per cent, and at the same time keeps up
his game preserves at half the cost. The
Coltano estate, which seemed to bo noth
ing but worthless marshes, has been
drained, and now pay something like 10
"MY LADY" MUST HAVE GOWNS
Desperate Means Adopted by Titled
Woman Without a Satlsfao
LONDON, Nov. 7.-(SpeclaI.)-It Is fast
becoming a case of beg, borrow or steal
for the woman who aspires to be smart
and In the swim. It Is more Imperative today
for a woman to be exquisitely robed during
the county house visiting season than dur
ing the London season. In crushes and
crowds In town frock pass muster which
won't stand for limited space in a coun
try house and the sharp eyes of one's
dearest enemies. At this season womenl
with dress allowances of $30,000 per annum
are often . driven to desperation to keep
pace with the sartorial art of their rivals.
A story is Just now being told of a lady
who was one of the guests recently invited
to meet the prince of Wales at a famous
country house in Scotland. She did not
consider that her wardrobe was up to the
essential standard demanded by the princu
who fancies himself a connoisseur In
gowns, so she lmmedltely 'proned to the
swagger West End atelier. She explained
that she was In a violent hurry and must
have the garments on approval. Theytwere
accordingly forwarded without demur.
They included dinner frocks, tea gowns,
tailor-made suits, etc. This same night they
were packed in "my lady's" boxes and dis
patched to Scotland. She wore each in
turn for a week and at the end of the visit
It was again carefully packed in Its tissue
paper and returned from her ladyship's
house by her maid to the firm which sup
"My lay " rival who was furiously en
vious of the unique display of "creations"
her ladyship had exhibited, realized that
ther was only one house In Dover street
which could turn out a rose leaf charmeuse
tea gown of the order her ladyship had
worn for the prince. She immediately re
paired to the particular house, therefore,
at which she was well known, and said
she wanted such a robe.
"We have the Identical thing you de
sire," they said. "It la one of Doucet's,"
and forthwith the garment was produced.
"Why," she explained, "that is the Iden
tical garment Lady A wore at the duke
of O ' house party a few duys ago.
Beautiful as it is I should not think of
wearing a model which was repeated."
Shop assistants in the smart houses are
aa perfectly trained never to show sur
prise ms the best servants. The young
shop woman merely remarked that she was
sure "Mrs. JC. was Mistaken."
People are nw wondering what attitude
the house in question will take up against
her ladyship. The tea gown wa a tjO one
and it i a recognised fact in the trade
and to the heat dressed women that a
great house like Duucet never turns out
two models alike
FIRST CIRL LAWYER IN PARIS
Only 21, but Makes a Hit with Her
ACCUSED WOMAN IS ACQUITTED
Car Peculiarly Pathetic and Offers
the (hnrmlna- Pleader "neelnl
Opportunity to Appeal
to the Jury,
PARIS, Nov. 7. (Speclal.)-Mille. Helene
Mlropolsky, a talented young woman bar
rister, made her debut last week at the
Palais de Justice. For the first time In
the history of the modern Paris law courts
a woman stood alone before the red-robed
judges surrounded by all the solemn maj
esty of Justice, pleading in her own right
as legal counsel the cause of another
woman who was being tried for murder.
No wonder that the court was crowded
with an eager public and that all the other
counsel, young and old alike, who were
not engaged In other cases that day,
thronged to witness the ordeal of their
young woman colleague'.
Clnd In the sober black gown and white
bib of counsel, but without the mediaeval
bob-wig so familiar In England, Mdlle.
Mlropolsky was not In the least overawed
or outwardly nervous. She had doubtless
looked at herself In the mirror that morn
ing and recognised that the verdict of "the
men" could not be other than favorable.
Mdlle. Miropolsky Is a handsome brunette,
with fine dark eyes, a wealth of wavy
black hair clustered out from beneath the
coquettish toque and altogether she Is pleas
ant to look upon, for sho is In the bloom
of 21 summers. Even the public prosecutor,
her adversary, unbent from his stern mis
sion as the avenger of Justice and made a
graceful little speech welcoming his learned
friend at the outset of her legal career.
Case n. I'nthrtlc One.
The case that this twentieth century
Portia was called upon to defend was a
peculiarly pathetic one. It was that of a
poor woman, a button-maker, who had
managed to keep the wolf from the door
until she mated with a brutal and lazy
man. During the winter Helene Jean found
herself with her baby on many a day face
to face with starvation. Work had fallen
off and there was no prospects of matters
Improving. At last one cold morning in
March she lost all courage and addressed
the following piteous letter to "Monsieur
Le Commlssaire de Police:"
Life Is too miserable for It to be worth
living any longer. I have decided to die,
but I shall take my baby with me. for I
cannot leave him to the tender mercies of
the world. I beg you as a favor to have
all my belongings sold so that a wreath
may be bought for my baby boy.
Then she lighted the little charcoal stove,
locked the door, filled up all the cracks
and then, taking her baby In her arms, lay
down on her bed to await death. When,
some hours later, tho door was burst open,
It was to late. The baby was already dead.
Helene Jeaon, who was still alive, was
taken to the hospital, where she lay be
tween life and death for many days. When
at last she left the hospital It was to find
the prison doors open to receive her as
the murderer of her own child.
Jury Take Little Time.
The young barrister could hardly have
had a more grateful case to defend than
that of this bereaved, heartbroken prisoner,
alive In spite of herself and now childless.
Mdlle. Mlropolsky drew such a picture as
only a woman could draw of another
woman's sufferings, and when sho had
finished the tears stood In the eyes of
many of her hearers. The Jury's consulta
tion was brief. There was only one pos
sible answer to such an eloquent ' appeal;
Helene. Jean was unanimously acquitted.
The young "advocate," her checks flushed
with emotion and triumph, was warmly
congratulated by a crowd of admiring con
freres, who pressed forward to touch their
pretty and learned sister's hand.
Defends an "Apache."
Helene Miropolsky's triumphal debut was
followed the very next day by another
"masterly" pleading in the same court.
This time, however, the subject was an
ungrateful one , It was the trial, for at
tempted murder, of a female "Apache."
Last December, In tho gray light of early
morning, an old widow, named Delellle,
who keeps a little draper's store 1n rue St.
Martin, was taking down the shutters,
when a young woman of the quurter, Louise
Brut by name, entered and asked to be
shown a blouse. While Mme. Delellie was
busy getting It, tho young one was trying
to get at the till. Unfortunately, Mme.
Delclllo turned round at the, critical mo
ment. Caught In the act, the "Apache"
rushed at the old woman, seized her by
the throut and kicking her violently 1n
the stomach with her knee, laid her on the
floor. The old widow struggled desperately,
but Louise Brut held her round tho throat
with a grip like a vice. A few seconds
longer, and tho victim would have been a
corpse. At that moment a second custo
mer entered the store. The "Apache" tied
precipitately, but was arrested shortly
The prisoner pleaded that she was Intox
icated at the time of the outrage, und as
It was proved that she had drunk two cups
of coffee and four glasses of absinthe lie
fore going to Mum. Dchllle's, Mdlle. Mlro
polsky was able to induce the Jury to al
low extenuating circumstances! Malire
Henri Robert, the great criminal advocate,
could not have dune more for his client
than that. Louise Brut was sentenced to
two years' Imprisonment.
i'areer Fairly Started.
Mdlle. Miropolsky Is, therefore, now
fairly launched upon her career, at tho
very outset of wnlch she has reached u
decree of celebrity tha. many briefless bar
risters dream of but never attain. It is
probable that the new "avocate" will con
tine her activities to her own sex. Such
at any rate la her present Intention.
It is not generally known ttiai prior to
the great resolution of 1?M no woman wa-s
admitted to the bar. The rules of the order
were extremely strict and excluded "the
deaf, dumb, mad, minors of IS, women,
Judges, notaries, policemen and persons
belonging to a religious order." When the
revolution broke out the Corporation of
Barristers shared the late ot every other
privileged body: it was dissolved and the
bar was thrown open to everyone. Many
prisoner, most Indeed, defended them
selves, and there is moid than one famous
instance of women having coma forward to
plead the causo of their husbands and
fathers. The first on record was Mdlle.
Nina d'Ambert, whose father, the Marquis
de Merle d Ainbert, colonel of the regi
ment of Royal Marine, had quitted Franue
without permission for England in order
to put his wealth in a place of safety. On
his return lie was seized as an emigre and
brought before the terriblu revolutionary
tribunal, before' which hardly anyone ever
dared to appear as defending counsel of a
prisoner. Mdlle. Nina d'Amoert -fearlessly
presented herself on behalf of her father,
i'ae tribunal could not in decency refuse
to listen to her. but her eloquence wa In
vain. Th marquis was guillotined and bis
unhappy daughter died broken-hearted.
It la a curious fact' that the Purls bar
only now reckons 1,3a) "maltres," fully half
of whom never don the rube. So there
should be plenty of loom for "ces Uames,"
in spite of the (act that we tire clearly
tea Jinglously inclined tnan our sites.

FLORENCE. Nov. 7. (Special.) Miss
Amy A. Bernardy, the American girl who,
us special commissioner for Kin Victor
Kmanuel of Italy, has Just completed an
Investigation of Italian women and enti
re n In tho North Atlantic division of the
United States, has urrhVd in Florence,
Mlbs Bernardy has for years divided her
time between Italy and the United States,
and her writings on Italian affairs have
attracted wide, attention in the latter coun
try, us well as In this. She occupied the
chair of Italian literature in Smith college
and is undoubtedly one of the best in
formed authorities on the Italian emigrant
question. At present she is enjoying, a
year's leave of absence from her duties at
Snritli college and has spent the time ful
filling her miHsion for the king of Ituly.
Although Impressing upon the writer her
inability to forecast her official report, she
nevertheless accorded your correspondent
a Very Interesting interview un the general
question of ltarian emigration to the
United States. I asked Miss Bernardy what
in her opinion wad the greatest obstacle
in the way of Italian cinlgrjilon. Her
answer was prompt and to the point.
Obstacles to Umlgra t lou.

"To return to Italy?"
"Sometimes. And right here I would say
that the returned Italian immigrant, as a
rule, is practically no good for Italy. He
has lost his good Italian qualities and has
gained the worst American ones, retulning
the worst, not the best of both lands. If.
he remains In' America, like the German
of the past, he will in time become what
both President ltoosevelt and the pope
alike declared to me to be his Hue destiny,
the role of good citizenship. But he must
be aided to tills not only Intelligently, yes,
but sympathetically, also."
"What method would you suggest?"

"Distiibule the demand for his work and
he will oislrlbute himself in pursuit of it,
as I said recently in my speech, on conges
tion of population In New York, but don't
'ay out acres of undesirable lund and offer
him 75 cents a day, with a chance of sup
pression, race war, peonage, child labor,
etc., to accompany It. By shoveling in
New York he can make from 12 to 3 a
day, and the other mukes no appeal, no
matter how much he be expected to move
on for the good Vf the nation, nor how
much lie be a J vised by the committee on
congestion. You can't get him west by
promising lilm a farm In ten years, if he
pays his own fare, etc., to get there. If
he has )lUe, he prefers to buy a fruit stand
in New York, or u grocery on an install
ment plan, or, better, a house through a
share In some mortgage. If you can offer
him better Inducements, and Insure the
safety of his life, he 11 see to his own
distribution. In America the conditions re
garding labor, legislation, peonage, child
lubor, explosions of untugonlstlo feeling
against the newcomer, are frightful, equal
to the stute of uffulrs In England as re
garded the German of the early part of
the nineteenth century. And another
thing," added Miss Bi manly, "all the dis
tribution of tracts against tuberculosis and
tenement house evils are not going to
counteract the effect on the Italian new
comer of seeing Ms maimed and crippled
brothers coming back from the rallwas
and mines of Ohio and West Virginia."

"And what of the Italian In tho south, or
on the plantations?"
"Te begin with, tlicie he Is in a sunny
land, and tho customs are more his own.
A southerner, too, by the very nature of
liis aristocratic constitution, represents to
lilm a congenlul pardone or padrona. South
erners, too, understand his sentimental
yearnings. Ilia trouble, however," added
Miss Bernardy, "Is that tile southerner, in
his heart, does not really want him, nor
any other Immigrant."
"And What do you think America has
done for the Italian? Is he happy there?"
"When he becomes Americanized he is
all right. Happy, yes. America has made
him understand economic views. In fact,
has disciplined his sentimentality and sys
tematized his mind. In the second geneta
