WOMEN IN WALL STREET. n

Contrary to the general notion, a
women play an important part in b
the affairs of Wall Street. A man ,

ject estimates that not less than a
thousand are employed in positions of 'b
responsibility, while probably twice n
that number are engaged in one ca- n
pacity or another that calls for the i,
exercise of common sense and dis
cretion. It is a fact that some.women C
show much more aptitude in financial s
affairs than the average man and their c
ability and their resourcefulness have n
frequently evoked the admiration of v
those with whom they were brought k

class, though still young. has for c
some years occupied the position of j
private secretary to one of the high- c
est'officials of the Standard Oil Comn

and her personality would command
attention in a crowd. Tall and slim c
of figure, this woman is almost the Ic
last person one would choose as the e
"buffer"~ between a multi-millionaire
and the outside world. Almost her c
first words, however, convey the im
pression of strong reserve, and her
quick incisive tones tell the visitor a
that her time is precious. Thisc
young woman's duties combine those i
of secretary and diplomat. She reads
the greater part of her employer's
mail and dictates these and replies to
two stenographers. A full eight

work. though M"ten she is at her desk
