A woman who Is a pronounced so

friend, In a moment of confidence, that
•ho guided her conduct with discretion
'in working zealously to achieve her
"Long ago," she said, "I came across.
In the .'Letter* from Under a Bridge' of
N. P. Willis, a whimsical conceit of his
thus expressed: There were, he wrote,
two necessities of society unfitted with
a. vocation. One was a listener. The
other was a aort of ambulant diction
ary of social matters. I determined
to fill this want. I believe I have done
so. . | I know that my acquaintances
seem to like to talk to me, so that I
don't Imagine I have that look which
some one says is In all women's eyes,
of only waiting till a speech Is finished
to strike in with something of their
own. Moreover, I serve, not without
■ much private study on my own part, as
n book of reference. I know from ex
•perienee that It is as hard to receive
as it Is sweet to give Information.
Therefore I make it a point to ask ad
:, vice, In my turn, of every one who
1 thus turns to me, having always some
■ matter on which I desire the enlighten
ment that friend alone can give. I
'.find this achieves my ends. If I asked
■others', opinions, and that alone, I
j should be contemptuously treated as
. one of no importance; to be an author
ity and yet to wish assistance is flat
tery of the subtlest sort. All of this
. leems artificial. In one way It is false.
And still It has enabled one woman to
wage a doughty warfare, without other
ammunition, on the battlefield of so
ciety." . '■„:, r;:/.' ■;,:;:
