AMERICAN WOMEN IN ENGLAND.
LADY JEUKE TELLS OF TBEIB INFLUENCE
IX THE PUBLIC LIFE OF
"It w a curious coincidence that the
wives of three of the leading English
politicians of the last twenty years
should be Americans, and. two of them,
as has been said by a very astute politi
cal leader, hare done much to foster and
strengthen the friendship between the
two jreat English-speaking nations of
the world,'' writes Lady Jeune in her
article on Women in English Political
Life in this week's issue of The Satur
day Evening Post. Lady ilarcourt and
MrsVCIiamberlain, though they hare
been their husband's comrades and
friends in the best sense of the word,
have kept themselves aloof from the
fcurb-burly of politics. Lady Harcourt
has lived so many years amongst us,
first as the dadghter o: her father when
Mr. Motley waa minister in London, and
since thee as so warm a friend to the
country of her adoption that we have
come to regard her aa almost an English
woman, and we can pay her no greater
compliment Mrs. Chamberlain we still,
aad almaye shall, regard aa tfcsembodK
ment of all that is delightful in Ameri
can womankind, and the best represent
ative of her Puritan ancestors. Always
with her husband, either at home, on
the platform, or in the gallery of the
House of Commons, she has invested
her political life with a charm and a
sentiment that are quite unique, and
while keenly interested in every ques
tion, she has never vulgarized her polit
ical ideals, or descended into the lower
arena into which some English women
degrade their political sympathies. The
early death of Lord Randolph Churchill
while on the threshold of the highest
political position in this country de
prived Lady Randolph ot the position
which she must eventually have occu
pied, for she at one moment seemed
bound to become the wife of the future
prime minister ot England. Never was
the promise of a life so blighted as hie,
and the .malady which bo insidiously
undermined his life was one of the most
unerring and fatal.
"The influence of American women on
English society is one which grows no
weaker, and women like Mrs. Chamber
lain and Lady Harcourt soften the ex
crescences and peculiarities which often
strike aa aa un-English."
Army Wives Following the Flag.
(General Charles King, In The Saturday Eve
ning Post. )
Manila fell in August. The flag went
up on the Ayuntamiento and prices on
the Escolta. And along in the autumn,
to the consternation of the commanding
general, certain devoted army wives
made their way to the Orient, and no
sooner was it known that the venture
some half dozen vera there than half a
hundred others were inspired with like
ambition. Peace for a season bade the
world farewell as far as the command
ing general and the quartermaster's de
partment were concerned, for the num
ber of women with missions ot Manila
outnumbered the state-rooms on the
transports, and, to put an end to impor
tunity, out came the order that none
would be taken. This barred women
who couldn't afford the journey at their
