Mrs. Atherton told an omuslns story
about Mrs. Strong, tho step dai!hter
of .Stevenson and sister of Lioyd Os
botirno. "In ono town," she ?ald, "Mrs. Strong
and 1 had to address a meeting of about
1,000 women. Tho wife of a local com
mercial magnate, or something of tho
sort, all upholstered out of the store's
best, presided, Sho was very anxious
to say something complimentary, and
evidently ltnowlnij that Mr. Strong
had somo claim to distinction, .leaned
over to her nnd whispered a request
for particulars. Mrs. Strong told her
that she was tho Hell? in the 'Valllma
Letters." So the upholstered lady got
up and impressively announced that we
were to have tho prlvllego of listening
to the daughter-in-law of Steveng tho
poet, a lady who Is widely known as
'tho Valllma belle."'
Thero was another amusing Incident
In which Joaquin Miller figured.
"I was to speak In a theatre In Oak
land." said Mrs. Atherton, "and they
made poor old Joaquin Miller Introduce
us. It was a shame, tor no was cr
feeble: but ho looked beautiful In a
long tan gown and his long silvery 1
beard nnd hair, a little red cap on his
head. Deplte his feebleness he Insisted
on making an opening address. He
launched Into an elaborate eulogy of me,
telling them how they were to listen to
the writer with an International ropu
tatlon. the brains of California, the
woman whose name was n household
word; then turning with a gesture to
ward me he stopped short, lie had for
gotten my name 'The lady will now
make n speech,' lie concluded. The
audience shouted. It wakid them up
and was a good beginning."
Mrs. Atherton said that a man gave
her In the beginning a good piece of ad
vice and she passes it on to others who
would be successful as public speakers.
"Always take your subject seriously."
he said, "but never take yourself seri

Mrs. Atherton sails next week for Eu
rope to spend a few weeks In Genoa
and then to go on to Switzerland, where
she may stay two years. She will write
her new novel while gone. The Idea Is
j already pretty well In her mind, but, fol
lowing ner custom, oe won i iru no
thing about it until the book Is finished.
For with Mrs. Atherton plots and char
acters change very radically In the
process of development and she herself
cannot forecast accurately.
She ha some vcy Interesting views
on the white slave question and thinks
that a book might well be written on the

When a friend advised him to wrlto

The Hritlsh wrltcra takn a different
view of their work from that of most
American writers, They work more
leisurely and live a more normal port
of life In other regards. In conse.
qtience, they aro apt to enjoy bettor
health than the most of their con
freres on thin sidn of the ocean.
