A Notable Sasslan Woman.
The Russian lady who owns the well
known initials "O. K.," in other words,
Olga de Kireff , or still in other words,
Mme. de Novikoff, is about to leave Lon
don and take np her residence in Ameri
ca. She has been something more than
a Russian political enthusiast. She has
had a political mission, and has exercised
in political circles in London a wide po
litical influence. It has not exactly been
an influence felt or seen, as it were, above
ground. It has worked silently, widely
and in a subterranean way, more even
than by public agitation or directly
through the press.
Often when the doings of Russia were
being minimized to the British public, it
was Mme. de Novikoff who was behind
some members of the English press, in
spiring them with information, coloring
.the aggression and pulling the wires.
Air. Gladstone himself belonged to the
circle of her select friends. Russia must
have some deep design in hand in send
ing such an emissary to the other side of
the Atlantic, which will not be explained
by the fact that a Russian squadron is
to have its headquarters at New York.
Society will miss her in London, but the
initials of "O. K."will not perhaps quite
disappear from the columns of the Eng
lish press. London Correspondent.

Recently the writer of this interviewed

not apparent. If a woman has herself
and others to Bupport, she has quite limi
tations enough created by her circum
stances not to submit to an artificial re
striction in so personal a matter as that
of her wardrobe. The women most

their drawing rooms. It did not seem to

One of the oddest among, the late

universally recognized witness the

probably continue to wear it, despite the J

aesthetic instincts and reserve which are
characteristic of tho majority of her sex.
The advocates of still another scheme
of reform earnestly recommended the
costume of their invention on the ground
that it "completely concealed the form"
without seeming to realize that their
movement was retrograde instead oi
progressive. Why not at once declare
in favor of the dress of the women of the
harem, who never appear in public un
less they are completely veiled from
head to foot?
In a land where women are admitted
to have not only soul, but intellect, and
are therefore respected, there can be no
possible reason for muffling the figure
out of all semblance to womanhood, and
reformers who are guilty by implica
tion of such disrespect will never have a.
large following. Garments are worn for
warmth and covering, and what beauty
they possess is mainly borrowed from
the body which they cover nnd which
is the reason of their being. Conceal by
draper) all indication of its Bhape and
movement, and there remains merely a
clumsy mass of cloth, devoid of mean
ing or individuality.
The absurdities and distortions of dress
are greatly to be condemned as sins'
against the principles of hygiene, there
fore against those of beauty, but it is not
necessary' to wear startling or hideous
garments in order to be clothed health
fully. A woman of sense and artistic
perception can dress conveniently and
becomingly without departing so far
from the reigning mode as to make her
self conspicuous, and women will no
doubt keep on exercising their own taste
in the matter despite all the conventions
that can be called by young and pretty
enthusiasts. Isabella Proctor in New
Pennsylvania and Women.
The new married woman's law of Penn
sylvania was passed to meet decisions
of the courts, which, pursuing their
usual custom of very strict constructions
on that subject, had largely neutralized
the apparent intent of previous legisla
tion, as well as to meet the demand for
larger freedom over their estates by
married women. The act provides that
married women may have the same
right jir.d power as an unmarried per
son to acquire, use, lease and dispose of
property, but she may not mortgage or
convey her real estate unless her husband
joins. She may also make anyf contract
in writing or otherwise which is neces
sarily appropriate, convenient or advan
tageous to the exercise or enjoyment of
her rights of property, but she may not
become accommodation indorser, maker,
guarantor or surety for another.
She may sue and bo sued civilly, but
she may not bug her husband except for
divorce or to protect or recover her sep
arate property when deserted or refused
support, and he may sue her for divorce
or to protect or recover his property
when deserted by her, but she shall not
be arrested for her torts. In suits be
tween husband and wife both shall be
competent witnesses, but cannot testify
to the confidential communications un
less by agreement. She may dispose by
will of all her property, but the hus
band's right as tenant by courtesy shall
not be affected.

a number of very charming things
in nammered ironwork "were snown,
finch as vases, lanterns, hinges, locks,
etc., and their simple construction fired
the ambition of a few artistic women to
make an attempt to reproduce some of
the examples shown.
Their attempts met with so much suc
cess that a perfect craze for the work be

urally took up only the lighter form, the
"bent ironwork." This requires but a
few simple tools and no forge, with con

"Bent ironwork" became immensely
popular in England in a little while, and

A Hustling Woman Worker.
Miss E. R. Scidmore began newspaper
work some 15 years ago, and took a lead
ing position among the corps of intelli
gent women correspondents at Wash
ington. Her letters to the St. Louis
Globe-Democrat, signed "Ruhamah,"
were for years a leading feature of the
paper. Afterward she visited Alaska
and wrote descriptive letters and a book
about that then slightly known country.
She visited Japan and Cores, and her
book, "Jinrikisha Days," obtained a wide
popularity. Miss Scidmore lately gave
a series of lectures at Chautauqua on Ja
pan and Corea, illustrated by lantern
llides. She is secretary of the National
Geographical society, and has the honor
of being sponsor for Scidmore's island

FOR LITTLE FOLKS.
WITH A CUP AND SAUCER.
A Child's Charmed Lire.
Chubby cheeked Lena Shenstine, 3
years old, whose parents live at 1280 Hope
treet, is believed by the neighbors to
bear a charmed life, and her mother be
lieves that her child's star of destiny is
bright and twinkles with good fortune.
At any rate little Lena accomplished a
feat that ordinarily would be thought to
be attended with death.
This i3 the story of tho affair: Tuesday
noon Lena's mother took the child up to
the third story to let her take the usual
midday nap. Mrs. Shenstine placed her
little one on tho bed and tucked in the
covers. She then closed the shutters of
ono window that nearest to the bed.
The Bhutters of the other window were
bowed. But Lena's mother thought that
there was no necessity for closing them.
The mother went down stairs and into
tho yard to continue the washing. About
10 minutes later Mrs. Shenstine heard a
little noise on the pavement near her,
but was so busy that she did not turn
around. A minute later she felt a tug
at her skirts. She looked, and there was
little Lena with a frightened look.
"Mudder, I fell out of the window,"
was all that the child said.
Mrs. Shenstine was bewildered with
fright. She could scarcely believe it, but
one of the neighbors who happened to be
up stairs in her own home and had seen
the child fall, called to Mrs. Shenstine,
and little Lena's story was verified.
The two women examined the child,
but found only a bruise on the fleshy part
of the body. Mrs. Shenstine sent for Dr.
Beatty, as the child began crying. The
physician could find no bones broken,
but advised tho mother to send Lena to
St. Mary's hospital, which was done.
At the hospital last night one of the
physicians said that Lena would recover,
as she was only suffering from the shock.
The child was prattling all day yesterday
about her mishap. Philadelphia Press.
Narrow Escape of the Elephant.
There was a fire at Coney Island a lit
tle while ago, and the big elephant al
most burned up. His legs were scorched,
and his trunk had to be covered up with
rubber blankets to keep it from being
burned. While all this was going on
the big elephant stood stock still, and
only when the flames were put out did
he seem to heave a sigh of relief. Through
all tho excitement he remained motion
less. Now this may seem very strange to
you. But the elephant is made of wood,
so you cannot expect him to show a great
deal of emotion. Ho is the big fellow
who stands upon the bench at Coney Is
land, inviting you to walk up insido of
his legs and his trunk and take's view of
tho inland. xx3 namb is juiuL, uj i;
age is just 9 years. Ho has never grown
any since ho was built, but he has chang
ed his coat every spring, when new paint
has been put upon him.
People out on tho ocean who had nev
er seen tho wooden Jumbo were very
much alarmed when the fire swept across
Coney Island because they thought the
elephant was alive and that he would
burn up. But when they heard that he
was only made of wood, they enjoyed
the sight greatly. New YoVk Ledger.
The White House Ilaby.
You must all have heard by this time
that a new little baby has arrived at tho
White House. This little girl hus the
honor of being tho first child born to
any president in the White House.
Grandchildren and nieces and nephews
to different presidents have arrived there,
but no son or daughter. Baby Ruth, as
you all call her, must be in a great state
of excitement over this new sister. Some
day she will begas a great favor tho
privilege of sitting on ono of her little
rocking chairs and holding tho baby
"just for a minute." And I don't bo
lievo that tho president will ever have
loved a picture so much as when ho sees
them there. Now York World.
In the Lapland village at the World's

months, and he was born in Lapland, in

now reposes, in almost total darkness for
his days as well as nights. His mother,
a fair faced woman, makes things as
easy for liim as possible by keeping vis
itors from intruding on his slumbers, if
not on his waking hours. There are
three other children in theMortonson

that children can live and thrive in tho

"ST0SE IT'S SATAN.
It was only the ground on which the
150 boys of Dr. Kellar's school disported
themselves. But besides the boys pres
ent there were at least 150 demons and
angels of ambition, envy, loyalty, perfi
dy and truthfulness.
The doctor himself, in a new suit of
tweed, seemed to tho boys to bo far more
approachablo hero in tho midst of their
sports than when in academic cap and
gown he cast gloom through their ranks
by stalking along with that searching
eye of his well turned on the discomfi
turo of evildoers. However, even at
these grewsomo times, the boys admitted
among themselves that Kellar was a gen
tleman, and that they'd rather take a
hiding from him than punishment drill
from a cad any day.
For they were proud of Kellar's, loyal
to the school, and ready to battlo to tho
bitter end against any common foe who
dared to asperse it in the slightest de
gree. A little lad of 10 had just run light
heartedly on tho ground when the afore
said searchlight fell on him, and simul
taneously tho head master shouted out:

Then Kellar's little daughter went up

Violet Kellar had fought a hard fight
before she had gained her father's con
sent to become engaged to penniless Jack
Colville. Tho girl's brilliantly good
looks, attractive manners and general
cleverness had brought far more eligible
men to her feet. But she had been
faithful to her first love through it all.
"I hate poverty, but I love Jack," she
would say, when her father pointed ont
to her how far more sensible it would be
of her to marry a man who could give
her a good establishment in which he
could stay at home in ease with her than
to link her lot with that of a mere sub

"The boy always got what he wanted,

good temperedly, and when he said tha
Violet knew that her caso was won.
Her mother, after the manner of
mothers, sympathized with the young
people's romance and hopefully assured
her that Jack would win promotion in
some miraculous way without seeing
much dangerous service.
So when Violet said: "Mother, dear, I
don't want a swell wedding. I don't
even want a wedding dress Jack likes
me in sailor serge better than anything,
but I do want to go out and bo as near
him as I can. Take mo to Cairo and let
the chaplain marry us a3 soon as the

to do so, and all their acquaintances
declared that the mother was as great a
fool as the daughter.

Before he could finish the sentence the
