subject of temperance when she visited
lhe United Slates two yeara ago.
In Hoeton'afler bcr address given le
foro the Proftssors of Harvard, many
papere voted ber the tiiieat woman-speaker
ever licard in that city.
The etory of her life is interesting as a
type of the fin tl'cierlc woman.
She was born in the noble family of
Sumiucra of a French mother and Eng
lish father. From her mother she
inherited a chinning personality and
exquisite taste in dress; from ber father
great wealth and a great name.
In her eighteenth year she .was mar"
ried to Lord Henry S'lmmerset, whose
banishment from the country a few
years later, left her a widow in every
thing but name.
Wealthy, charming and titled. Lady
Henry was of course received by society
with open arms. The Queen called her
by her first name and she had known
the Princesess from childbood.Her father
gave her an ancestral castle for her
summer home, and a house in Park Lane
forwioter, which should be quite her
own and not connected with her hus
band's estates. However, Bhe was not
at heart, a part of tlrs London in which
she moved and hr revolt was a startling

borough House with the Princa of Wales
as the bright particular star. Every one
has heard how the paor Prince suffetri
from ennui and therefore it is tha sacred
duty of bis friends to make him laugh
as often as possible.
Some one thought of a funny etory but
it was too indecent to tell in English, so

Before it was half finished Lady Som
mereet rose and left the room. It took
the little company a moment to got its
breath after this unprecedented occur
ence, then of course they were scandaliz
ed at such actions.
Lady Henry walked on out into the
softly lighted gardes and wandered aim
lessly about thinking of the people she
had left. Her life seemed unsatisfactory
and she longed for something broader
and tetter. At last the thought came
to her to take her little boy, her only
child, and go to the Prior)', the estate he
would inherit on coming of age and de
vote her time to study and bis educa
tion. The Priory is a beautiful old English
structure full of historic interest, but
like S3 many of these buildings unsani
tary. Lady Henry decided to build a
modern cottage on the estate for her
self and child and in the meantime re
model the larger building into a lux
urious house for her son when he should
boot aze. Ore day in. this secluded
spot Fate brought 10 her hands a book
by Francis Willard.
She was fascinated by it and saw in
the helping of England to temperance a
noble life work. She decided to go to
America and meat MUs Willard and
since that happy day they have been
friends as devoted as two lovers. One
who has never visited England cannot
realizs the intemperance that exists
among the wonienof that country and
it was to these poor souls that Lady
Henry decided to give her special at
tention. She returned t? London and staited a
home for inebriate women, where they
v.eic furniszed with outdoor work,
kindiy treated ard in every way drawn
from their old habits.

of plenty of milk and all the daisies
they could carry home.
"The poor you have with you al
ways," and having once taken up the
lame, the halt and the b'ind, lady
Henry found herself appealed to on
every occasion. She spoke at radical
meetings, crossed over to France to
make soup for the Armenian sufferers,
upheld Mrs. Chant in an attempt to
suppress the bar at theatres and (bard
est'to bear) was criticised and cartooned
by the papers.
Most of her old acquaintances dropped
her like a hot cinder but she has gone
on without them giving ber own time
and money to her chosen work.
