Wmtten at Salt Lake, in the Territory )
of Utah, and so on. Whenever j-
an Opportunity Occurred. J
The past week has beea one of great
personal interest, although it has had
little effect on public affairs. I have
been, vi&iting my old haunts in Colorado
and Wyoming, after about seven years
of absence. I have also been in TJtah,
where spiing has come in the rich valley
of the Jordan and the glossy blackbird,
v ith wing of flame, scoots gayly from
bough to bough, deftly declaring his af
fections right and left and acquiring
more wives than he can support, then
clearing his record by claiming to have
'-Lvd a revelation which made itall right.
' One cannot shut Ins eyes to the fact
that there is great real estate activity
this spring in the west. It has taken the
rlace of mining and stock, 1 judge, and
everywhere you hear and see men with
their heads together plotting against the
poor rich man. Yesterday in Salt Lake
I saw the sign, "Drugs and Real Estate."
I presume it meant medicine and a
small residence lot in the cemetery.
In early days in Denver llenry C.
Brown, then in the full flush and vigor
of manhood, had some talk with the
agent of the Atchison stage line for a
ticket back to Atchison, as he was heart
broken and homesick. He had a quarter
section of land, with a heavy growth of
prairie dogs on it, and he had almost
persuaded the agent to swap him a stage
ticket for this sage brush conservatory,
when he gently backed out of the trade.
Mr Brown then sat him down on the
sidewalk and cried bitterly.
I just tell this to show how easily some
men weep. Atchison is at present so
dead that a good cowboy, with an able
mule, could tie to its tail and, putting
his spurs to the mule, jerk loose the en
tire pelt at any time, while Brown's addi
tion to Denver is wortli anywhere from
one and a half to two millions of dollars.
When Mr. Brown weeps'now it is be

could not blow into Cherry Creek vale,
and then he set to work earnestly to
wait for the property to advance. Find

any price, he, with great foresight, con-

special ability in other directions, have
the greatest genius for doing such tilings,
whilst others, with greater genius in
other ways, do not make money in this
A report got around some time ago that
I had made a misguesd on some property

who speculated. She had never specu

pid a cottage and lots in Hudhon, Wis .
for city lots in Minneapolis, employing a
man named Flinton Pansley to do the
trading, look into the title and do the
Dqairo thing for her. He was a real good
rr in, with heavenly aspirations and a
ll sorrow in his heart for the prevalence
f sin. Still this sorrow did not break in
n his business. Well, the business was
d n e by correspondence and Mr. Pansley
onlv charged a leasonabie amount, she
giving him her new carriage to rcniunor
ite him for his brain fag. What the
other man paid him for disposing of the
1 )ts I do not know. I was away at the
'mo, and having no insect powder with
Inch to take his life, I spared him tolas
l't ii( class.
I did send a man over the lots, how
i or. when I returned. They were not
! illy in the city of Minneapolis; that is,
they w ere not near enough to worry any
body by the tumult of town. In fact
they were in another county. You may
think I am lying about this, but the lots
are there, if you have any curiosity to
be them. They were not where they
w ere represented to be, and the machine
fchops and gas works and court house
w re quite a long distance away.
Wui could cut some hay on these lots,
ba not enough to pay the interest on
'lie mortgage. Frogs lwild their nests
t1 ore in the spring and rear their young,
i ut eople never go there. Two years
aa - s nator Washburn killed a bear on
t i.c of these lots, but that is all they
have ever produced, except a slight
t udnss on our part toward Mr! Pans-
ley. He says he likes the carriage real
wtll.and am thing he can do for us in
tlio future in dickering for city property
will be done with an alacritv that would
almost make one's head swim. I must
ad i that 1 have the permission to use this
li fi rmaiion. as the victiui teems to think
there was something kind of amusing
about it. Some people think a thing
finny which others can hardly get any
mu-emeiit out of. What I wonder at
is that he did not ask for the team when
1 e got the carriage.
Possibly he did not like the team.
I just learned recently that Pansley and
l .f r, aiders used to be very thick in an
c..r!y day. but after a while the Benders
1 r'iv ,jr"-es...i '"-- would have to be
..reused. Even the Benders Had to draw
J.I? line somewhere.
But now I am buyiDg in Salt Lake.
Not a heavy venture, you understand.

sure to do well out of it, and we also get
better notices in the paper.

I asked her about an old singer who
used to be with her. She said, "He was

Last week I visited Wyoming a good
deal and met many old friends, all of
whom shook me warmly by the hand as
soon as they saw me. I visited the capi
tol, and both houses adjourned for an
hour out of respect to my memory. I
will never say anything mean of a mem
ber of the legislature again. A speech
of welcome was made by the gentleman
from Crook county, Mr. Kellogg, the
Demosthenes of the coming state. Ho
i made statements nlinnt mn flint rinv
which in the paper read almost as good
and truthful as an epitaph.
Going over the hill, at Crow creek, i
whose perfumed waters kiss the livery
stables and abattoirs at Camp Carlin, j
three slender Sarah Bernhardt coyotes '
came toward the train, looking wistfully ,
at me as who should say: "Why, part-
ner, how you ha, e fleshed up." Answer-
ing them from the platform of the car, I ;
said: "Go east, young men, and flesh up j
with the country." Honestly and seri- '
ously, I do think that if the coyote would
change off and try the soft shell crab for ,
awhile, he would pick right up. i
When I got to Laramie City the wel- I
come was so warm that it almost wiped
out the memory of my shabby welcome
in New York harbor last summer on my
return from Europe, when even my band
went back on me and got drunk at Coney i
Island on the very money I had given
them to use in welcoming me homo

skinning of a frozen steer is something
to which I alluded awhile ago. Col.
Buffalo Bill, who served under Washing
ton and killed buffalo and baby elephants
at Valley Forge, according to an Italian
paper, should have put this feature into
his show. Maybe he will when he reads
this. The cow gentleman first selects a
quick yet steady going mule, then he
looks for a dead steer. Ho does not have
to look very far. He now attaches one
end of the deceased to some permanent
object. This is harder to find than the
steer, however. He then attaches his
rope to the hide of the remains, having
cut it with his knife first. He next starts
tlitj mule off, and a mile or so away he
discovers that the hide is entirely free
from the cold and pulseless remains.
LOOKING CP HIS REAL ESTATE.
Sometimes a cowboy tries to skin a
steer before the animal is entirely dead,
and when the former gets back to the
place from which he was kicked he finds
that he has a fine new set of whiskers
with which to surprise his friends.
The Pacific roads have greatly im
proved in recent years, and though they
do not dazzle one with their speed they
are much more comfortable to pass a
few weeks on than thev were when the
eating houses, or many of them, were in
the hands of people who could not cook
very well, but who made a good deal of !
money. Now you can eat from a good
buffet car at your leisure or a first class j
dining car, or you can stop off and get a ,
good meal, or you can carry a few hens
and eat hard boiled eggs all over your
I dt not think people on the cars ought
to keep hens. It disturbs the other pas
sengers and is anything but agreeable to
the hens. Close confinement is never
good for a hen that is advanced in years,
and the cigar smoke from the rear of the
car hurts her voice. I think.
California will, no doubt, be the theme
for my next letter, if there should be no
delay in getting through. I do not know
exactly upon what features I will treat,
but whatever they may be. the article
w-ill bo interesting and thrilling in the
extreme, abounding in rich word pict
ures and bright metaphors which will
hold the reader by the coat button, en
tranced and spell bound, till the entire
article is greedily snapped up. Mean
while time may drag a little with the
reader, but something else may rum up
to take his attention from the monotony.

THE AUTHOR -EDITOR TALKS Or
WOMEN AND JOURNALISM.
She Is in Love with Her "Work Women
"Who Work on Newspaper Well Treated
by Men Journalists The Profession Re
In her cozy nook in the very heart of
the great Harper establishment, sur
rounded by the whir of bookmaking
machinery, the noise of which penetrates
but does not seem to permeate the quiet
of her sanctum, sit3 daily at her editorial
desk Mrs. Margaret E. Sangster, long
identified with the success of Hearth
and Home, a popular magazine a dozen
years ago; still the loving and beloved
postmistress of Young People, and now,
in addition, the controlling mind of that
world famous periodical Harper's Bazar.
Her personality, physical and mental, is
well known. Modest as she is, Mrs. Sang
ster has not been able to prevent the
strength and sweetness of her character
from showing far outside the circle
which comes into actual contact with it;
her admirers are the thousands who read
her writings, her friends the public
throughout the land.
MRS. MABOARET E. SANGSTER.
It was with rather a deprecatory shake
of the head that Mrs. Sangster greeted a
visitor recentl7. who went to her asking
I an opinion upon the subject of "Women
"I am not sure that I have any views
to formulate upon this matter," she said,
laying aside, with a gesture that had in
it no hint of annoyance at work inter
rupted, the MS. she had been reading.
"It is fully twenty years since I began
my literary work, and although my ex
perience has naturally been wide and
varied, still in the great field of daily
newspaper work, with which in my
mind the word journalism is most inti
mately allied, I am in one sense a
"Who are some of the women earliest
prominent in this field?" repeated Mrs.
Sangster. "I can hardly reply with ac
curacy on so brief consideration. That
strong and brilliant pioneer in the work,
Mrs. Swisshelui, is, of course, the name
which first suggests itself. Since her
time, however, the field has widened on
every side and her followers are legion.
The reasons for this are obvious. The
greater interest in h'ome decoration, the
wiuer scope ol women s uvea, uie many
wider scope of women's live3, the many
uew avenues of self support open to her
fiex illld uiakiug this particular epoch so
different from that in which, fiftv vears
ago, a woman who had her own or her
children's bread to win found, if she were i
a lady, only sewing and teaching her '
available arts all this and more have1
made it practicable for women to engage '
in journalism. The fashions, the home
economies, the care or babies, tiie educa
I tion of the older children, tho ethics of
j daily life, social customs, etiquette,
' amusements and other topics which
, equally touch life at the fountain head of
the home enlist woman's attention.
' "Where forty years ago a mother's
j magazine, pure indeed, but intensely
narrow and conservative, monopolized
' tho field, we have bright housekeeping
and home making periodicals, weekly
and monthly, which are as various in
their contents as the homes to which
they go and which carry help, advice,
sympathy and a noto of cheer wherever
the swift mails carry them. To this de
partment of journalism, as legitimate
and as honorable as any other, the edu
cated woman brings her tact, her cul
ture, her conscience and her Lrain.
"And the work is as much pleasanter
than the old time methods of woman's
bread winning as its scope and opportu
nities are greater. You will rarely find
that the woman who writes regards her
occupation, though it may entail hard,
almost unremitkng labor, with other
than enthusiasm. There is a fascination
about seeing one s ideas and opinion! ! set
out in type that does not wear away with
repetition. A score of years has not
sated me with the experience. Why, I
positively look forward to every issue of
Harper's Bazar; I study it with zest and
eagerness; its contents are familiar yet
delightfully.fresh in their new setting.
I wish that every one of it? readers may
find half of the interest ami enjoyment
between its covers that I do.
"Of women reporters it is scarcely fair
for me to speak; 1 knowouly by hearsay
of their branch of the work; it is differ-
' ent in so many respects from the depart- (
j inent in which I have always labored j
i that I am not competent authority in the ,
i matter. I know a number of lovely wo-
men who have made a beginning in this I
way, and as many, too, who are still fol
lowing it. Their large measure of suc
cess indicates the aptitude of women for
this phase of newspaper enterprise. I
think, however, that women like to get
out of general reporting as soon as pos
sible. It is arduous work and approaches
more nearly the distasteful, so some of
my friends have told me, than any other
branch of journalistic effort.
"Concerning the co-working of the sexes
in journalism," continued Mrs, Sangster
in reply to further questioning, "my ex-
perience is that women have absolutely
nothing to complain of concerning their
treatment bv their brother laborers. I
do not know that they have done fo, al
though a lady not long ago did express ,
to me a little querulously, in speaking of
a visit to a publication, office during its j
busiest time, that she 'was not even of- I
fered a chair.' A woman, should not ask
too much. A courteous civility even un- j
der the greatest pressure of work she j
will always get, and more ought not to j
be insisted upon. One does not expect i
uie giuiantxy oi uie arawmg roots in tne
niili of peremptory and absorbing labor
any more than on looks for -whit and
gold cabinets in tin? appointments of the
4,WJm.d.Qjrou knowof thrsssni!y
organized Woman's Press clubr7 Mrs.
Sangster was asked, it having been noted
that she was down as a member.
"Nothing,' she replied, "except that
it is a mistake that I belong to it. Per
sonally, I am not addicted to clubs;
large ones, especially, do not attract me,
and this is in no spirit of criticism. I
am a member of only one club, a very
Bmall one. which exists more as a circle
of congenial companions than as an or
ganization. "Something of the future of woman's
pursuit of a journalistic calling?" con
tinued Mrs. Sangster; "I am disinclined
to think that she will ever supersede
men in any very perceptible degree.
Women have published as well as edited
newspapers and periodicals, but in such
exceptional and rarely recurring in
stances as to rather point the assertion
that women cannot compete with men
in thi3 particular than to serve as a
precedent. Her executive ability is suf
ficient I think the average woman has
more of that than the average man but
she has not the inherent business in
stinctb and natural business habits that
generations of systematic workers have
developed in her brother laborer.
"To succeed in the journalism for
which she is best fitted by nature a
woman needs a broad education. She
must know literature as well as life.
Some skill in the grand old tongues
which men call dead is a -very helpful
thing, and a living language or two be
sides her own w ill not come amiss.
"The woman journalist must, be sys
tematic,though she cannot be the slave of
system. She must grasp details, make
quick decisions, and learn how to say no,
in every possible inflection. She must
be quiet mannered and self controlled,
not losing her temper when things go
wrong. Considerate of others, she will
receive consideration from her asso
ciates, and will exact no defer
ence which she is not willing to
give, one win put neari ana conscience
in her work and be thorough, leaving no
loose ends. Sho will welcome criticism,
but hold to her own judgment if this be
"She will feel, if she bo a born journal
ist and journalists, like poets, are born,
not made the pulse of her public opin
ion. She will seize by intuition the topics
which are vital, but all the while through
the tumult and turmoil of the hour she
will hear the far off booming of the bells
of eternity and realize that her work is
not for today nor to-morrow only, but
"In brief, the qualities which inhere in
good housekeeping come to the front in
good editing, and the journalist will look
on her paper as the careful matron at her
home her kingdom to administer, her
province to rule, her sphere to fill."'
Now that lamps are so freely used,
there seems to bo an equal demand for
mats which serve the double purpose of
ornamenting and protecting the table
upon which they rest. When to be used
upon a dining table which is lighted by
one of the lofty "banquet lamps," the
mat is made of material that does not
uuumuii wiui iub n iiueucss ui vuc nm:j j .
J If for a parlor or sitting room table, or
little stand, the lamp mat may be of vel-
I vet, satin or plush.
The mat illustrated is made of green
satin, with an interlining of cardboard
and back of green canton flannel. The
border, which projects beyond the square
of cardboard, is made of maple leaves,
of which the dark ones are worked on
the satin in a manner which will be de
scribed presently. The light ones are
made of green velvet of a lighter shade.
They are buttonholed on the edge with
dark green embroidery silk. The vein-

with a buttonholing of light green silk,
j and filled with lace or honeycomb stitch.
1 The points of all the leaves are cut out
! after the edge is worked.
An easily made lamp mat and one that
is not at all expensive is a circle of dark
felt, stiffened with cardboard and bor-
, dered with a thick roll of red yarn: over
i the roll is a covering of knitted tinsel.
The latter is to be found in various
shades at fancy stores for four cents a
ball. It is knitted loosely on rather large
wooden needles in the plain stitch used
for making garters or suspenders. The
knitted strip is to be sewed over the yarn
roll very loosely. No one seeing this
border, unless familiar with tinsel used
in this way, would imagine how it was
made. 3IRS. M. C. Hcngeiipopj).

BETTING ON A SURE THING.

Moxie Nartosky is a young man who
has a great passion for making small
bets. No matter what the subject under
discussion, Moxie invariably offers to lay
a wager that his view is the correct one.
One day he was late at the dining room
where he took his meals. A stranger was
the only other person in the room. The
stranger pounded a plate vigorously with
his knife, and when the dining room girl
entered she at once picked out Moxie as
Xhe offender and read him a lecture on
table etiquette, dwelling with particular
emphasis on plate pounding.
"But I didn't pound,"' said Moxie.
"You, did," said the girl.
Here was a "sure thing," and Moxie
hastened to &ay:
"I'll bet you 2 I didn't pound, and
leave it to this gentleman," referring to
the stranger, who was the real culprit.
The girl's pocketbook was out in an
instant and Sloxie's two dollar bill was
covered and passed over to thB stranger
as stakeholder and referee.
"Now, sir, who pounded?" naked Mox
"It was Moxio who pounded,"' said the
stranger, with judicial calmness, as ho
handed the $4 over to the girl.
