HOW BRIGHT ONES MANAGE TO
GET AN EDUCATION.
I j M if 4
It Calls for Strength, Courage
and More Than a Little
Is llicro not some way by which I cart
work my way through college? I have
known many young men supporting llii-m-selves
while taking a college course, and
why not a'girir T have plenty of energy
y -f a .
Sometimes n CIcer
anil ambition, and am willing to do any
thing, if you will but point out the way.
What can I do?
This is the sort of appeal that every
mall is bringing to all the leaillng col
leges for women, and the replies, vihile
full of friendly advice and encourage
ment, are too often obliged to conclude
nitli the warning: "There ore so few
ways in which a student can earn money,
and so many students to take advantage
or every opening, that in earning money
a younger 6tudent is always at a disad-"
Naturally a young girl who has ro
help from any source, and plans t o
take the four years of the college course
coisccuUvlIj. flMt Is, without stopping
to fill her puree by the way, is going to
hae a pretty hard struggle of it It Is an
undertaking that calls for large supplies
ot physical strergtli, courage. Intellectual
ability and practical skill. KtMrlhcle-a,
it can be done, as some of the brightest
women who have ecr graduated from our
colleges can pro e.
At Cornell, for Instance, there arc half a
dozen girls cery year who manage to take
tho course without any money but that
wbfch they earn while studying. SeMral
of them earn tl.cir board by assisting In the
household dalles out ot rtudy hours in the
families of some of the prorwsorj and
others interested in the work of the college.
One girl earns her lioard and room rent by
taking care of her landlady's baby for three
hours every afternoon. Thin, with a schol
arship to cover tuition, their necessary e.
IenFcs nre easily covered. It is a plan that
can ! carried out tausfactorlly in many
colleges, nnd is particularly desirable as
making no extraordinary demand on a
girl's phElcal or t-ervous powers. There
arc in all college towns a number of fami
lies who would receive students on tliese
tcrmc, and they would be la no sense of the
word treated as servants.
Wolls College, of which Mrs. Cleve
land Is a graduate. Is au Institution
where It Is possible for a bright, ambi
Uous girl to work her way without any
extraordinary difficulty. She must, how
ever, present satisfactory testimonials of
character and scholarship to the presi
dent, besides passirg the entrance exam
ination, or submitting credentials from
an accredited school. The college offers
a limited number of scholarships to worthy
applicants who stand in need of help and
conio prepared to take the full four years'
course These scholarships vary in val
ue from $30 to $100, and may be held fr
one year with the privilege of renewal.
There are, in addition, various opportuni
ties for giving help in the president's of
fice, in the library," In the stationery room
or in the laboratories, of which students
may avail themselves.
At Vasar, too, though there Is not much
opportunity for a student to cam any con
siderable sum or money, they are always
glad to encourage self-help as much as pos
sible. The Vassar Students' Aid Society
is composed of graduates and teachers of
the college. Other friends of the college
and tbe work are allied as associate mem
bers of fifteen branch organizations. Its
scholarships are assigned as loans to appli
cants passing without couditlon the en
trance examinations heldjy the college.
During the year 1893-'04 these loons
numbered twenty-two, and amounted to
$4,4C3, in sums varying front $100 to
$400. Tbe college" also posse-sses a loan
fund, from which amounts are loaned
to applicants without interest. In 'addi
tion there are numerous full and partial
scholarships with which the college bns
been endowed rroin time to time. All the
larger .colleges bare' similar funds and
scholarships, though on a smaller scale
than at Vassar.
As, however, there arc, on an average,
about a dozen applicants forevcry scholar
ship. It 'Is -plain tbaC some of tbe ambitious
girls must look to otbersources for aid.
m .. -flGKRgeSESTSsfiSSSr -
In moil cases It Is better for a girl to earn
enough to cover the major expense of her '
first year, or at least the nrst semester.
Tbls gives her a cbanre to look around her
and see what opportunities there may be
for her to make money. Tutoring pays
but naturally this work all falls to the older
and more cxperlencedstudents. A knowh
edge of millinery ii very apt to be a very
profitable source of Income, but the girl
wbo hopes to make much money In this line
must be sure tbat she bas thoroughly
mastered her trade. Dressmaking is an
other paying occupation that can be carried
.on in connection wilb college work, but
It is more physically taxing than mil
linery. Mending, manicuring, shampooing,
can all be depended on tobring Innumerous
half dollars front whcalthler students.
A great many rich girls are w jning to pay
the expenses of another girl who will take
care of her room, mend her clolhes, help
bcr with her etudlcs, nnd in general relieve
her of the burdens which college lire im
poses on bcr. This is, however, one ot the
Girl Tnrnn Unlrilrcuscr.
least pleasant ways of achieving an idu
catlon. The greatest danger that menaces the
struggling girl at college is that her health
will break down under the double strain of
sludy and work. Ilerc it is that the yodng
man in similar circumstances has the ad
vanlage, for reasons that are too plain to
need pointing out. The widest course Is first
to earn sufficient moneyforoneycar, either
by leaching in schools or by some trade or
profession. Every summer a few more girls
follow the time hocoredexnmpleof menstu
dents and earn a nice sum of money by work
ing in some capacity in the resort hotels and
boarding houseg. IVilb this to start on, a
heallhy, capable girl would be quite justi
fied in commencing her college career, and
whatever Institution she may select, she
may feel assured that the authorities are In
sympathy with her and will give her etcry
assistance in tl.cir power. One girl who be
gan the course last year at a large college
with no other proWiion than the money bc
nnd saved from a year's t'-aching in a small
couLlry school found that she could, by
making occasional trips to the city, earn a
considerable sum of money by shopping for
the other students aul teachers.
She registered at all the principal stores,
and they allowed her 10 por tent, on all
purchases, so that she was able to supply
the articles to her fellow students at the
regular prices. She had naturally god
taste, and shecxertedher3;lftokcepabreast
with the latest fashions, so thai the other
girls grew to depend on her Judgment.
This, or course, rcrersN to the larger
colleges: tbat Is. the colleges where the
expeires range from $400 a year up In
some of the Western colleges, and in Hie
fetate universities, while there are fewer
opportunities for earning money, the ex
penses are lower, the tuition in some of
them being free, so that the girl who stops
proceeding to the next would probably find
her path not at all a difficult one.

WANTS A BLANKET DIYORCE
Yellow Sonnet Has Four Wives and
Wishes to Be Free.
The Petitioner In nn Indian and a Re
cent Consort to tho Chris .
Wichita, Kan., Sept. 23. Yellow Bon
net, a Cheyenne Indian, has applk-d for a
blanket divorce from four wives at To
loga, Okla. It is the first time tbat an In
dian has sued for a divorce in Oklahoma.
Yellow Bonnet gives as bis reasons for
his action that be bas recently embraced
tbe Christian religion and cannot live a
polygamous life: also tbat bis wives have
refused to become Christians. He asks for
the custody of only one ot his nineteen chil
dren. It was at first thought that It was not
necessary to ask for a divorce, as the laws
of Oklahoma forbid polygamy. A few
lawyers held to that Idea, but other law
yers contended tbat, as be married the
four wives under tbe tribal laws, recog
nized partfally by the Government, and
before the statutes of Oklahoma existed,
be could not be separated from them except
by process of tbe laws rKiwprevalllng.
This opinion finally prevailed, and the
divorce application was filed. Tbat Yel
low Bonnet Is sincere In preferring Chris
tianity to four wives is shown by the
fact that each of the wives and children
bas now a nice allotment of land and sev
eral hundred dollars of trust funds coming
to them from tbe Government.
Tbe wives will consent only to a
"blanket" divorce, for they are afraid to
allow the cases to be taken up separately
for fear tbat Yellow Bonnet, after getting
rid of three of them, would keep the
fourth, and, as there is intense jealousy
exlstlng among them, the attorneys could
not persuade them to consent to single suits.
