STENOKRAPHERS IN NOVELS.
ISInndc and KrivoIoii> I >} Declared
to be a Caricature.
I A woman of much quiet charm and
cul ur?\ who earns her living by swift
and accurate stenography, has sent
us a lef.er in which she points out
the f:ivolous treatment o:' \h> stenographer
in popular literature. As to
her appearance, see O. Henry's "The
Romance of a Busy Broker."'
'1A high rolled fringe of golden hair
under a nodding canopy of velvet and 1
ostrick Tips, an imitation sealskin sack
and a string of beads as large as hickory
nuts, ending near the floor with a
I silver nean.
As to her mentality, consult "Short j
Story Writing" by Prof. Pitkin, of Co- j
lumbia university. ;
"The gum-chewing stenographer, I
who devours the literary offspring of j
Mr. Robert Chambers may have her ;
difficulties with tins."
Her conversation is described in a
story in Red Book for November:
Ilif, UUfXI lb CUIIIttS IU lUt'
real thing, the bliown-in-the-bottle i
kind, our Bill's got the best of em
beat to a fade-away."
Her equipment may be (found described
in any of the alleged comic pa- j
"Have you done anything for spell- ;
ing reform? Yes, I fired my blonde ;
Why is she so treated? We all know j
the facts. Among those earning their
living in this way happen to be George
Washing;on"s great-grandniece, a
Igranddaughrer of a governor or South
Carolina, a great-granddaughter of
Laurens, of toe First Continental congress
and thousands cf other of cultivated
ancestry. Many are college
graduates. The truth is, the world
loves familiar jokes and familiar ef
fects, and if one stereotyped trick gets !
started jind proves amusing to the av- ^
erage mind, it is hard to stop. 1 n
