Beauty the beaaty of woman has its
place in history side by si-le-with the re-
curded deeds of the naire, t lit -ro, the states
man and the thinker. The once read story
OI the siege of Troy leaves atrontrer rc-col

Achilles; In the aye of Grecian glory
fttryne's cnanriH shine out as clearly, as
the mighty deed of Alexander, and Cleo
patra, the sorceress of the Nile, has more
security of unending fame than the man
who drore her and Antony to death and
founded the long line of Roman Or-sars.
"In praise of ladies dead" the historian
has not been singular or alone. Around
the form of beauty the poet has woven the
magic spell of romantic verse, and, bowing
to the general drcrec, the sculptor has fash
ioned his block of marble nlonx the lines
of female grace, while the painter has more
than vied with each and all to triafce his
canvas the medium for the immortality of

Perhaps the power of beauty was never
better illustrated than in the last century
by the career of Elijtlx-th Guiitiing. She

ana apparently without resource. But yet
there was a resource left, and Mrs. Gun

luuzaoetn anu her sister Manx By des
perate exert ions the mother secured enough
money to take b.i-r daughters to Dublin.
There the kindness of Peg Woflingtoa
furainhed them with invitations to a grand
ball at the castle, and with dresses to wear
on the occasion. The maido na grew famous
in a night ana were the toast of the town.

New Year's, 1752, the Duke of Hamilton
proposed to Elizabeth, then a t-i!ely wo
man of 19, and was accepted. The engage
ment was of the briefest, for the duke in
aiated on immediate marriage, roused a
bishop from slumber, overcame nil obsta

new peeress that night entered on a career
of uninterrupted prosperity. She Iwcunie

Tiage united the great houses of Hamilton
and Argyll, and was the mother of two
dukes of the latter title aUo. Her sister
Uaria, too, was wooed and won by a noble
suitor and dazzled the gay world fur years
as the Countess of Coventry.
Another woman to force herself to the
front by merit alone of her surpassing
charms was Emma Lyon. Hho owed
nothing to a mother's watchfulness and
care, as did the Gunnings, She was simply
and wholly a child of the slums, the off
spring of a housemaid's intrigue, and a
cast off waif of the streets. Her girlhood
was passed amid all the surroundings of
abject poverty and irredeemubte vice. At
13 she was a nursery maid, immature, but
already showing promise of great beauty.
Dr. Graham, a notorious quack of the day,
picked her out of the gutter and utilized her
in his lectures on health, the half clad girl
posing before her employer's audiences as
the goddess Hygeia. After this the puinter
Komney grew infatuated with her, and
placed on numerous canvases delineations
of her glorious form and features.
- She abandoned lloinney to become the
wife of a middle aged scholar named Gre
ville, and under his tuition stored her mind
with a great variety of learning and accom
plishments. Now, fully equipped fur her
battle with the world, she deserted her bus
band, secured a divorce, and married Sir
' William Hamilton. Jthe ambaesador of
Great "Brita. n al The court of Naples. The
chronicles of that day are filled with ac
counts of her social triumphs, bar keen wit
and intelligence and her superb beauty.
She held her own, despite her past, at the
court of St. James and on the continent
nntil one morning there sailed into port,
after victory over England's foes, the fa
mous Lord Nelson. The complications
arising from her subsequent acquaintance
with the great admiral barred her from re
spectable circles, and a few years after Nel
son's death she passed away at Calais, to
MRS. JAMES MOXTtOE.

Still another woman who was the toast
of her day had the fortune to tie blessed in
her youth with Iwauty, and also inherited
rank. She was "of the purple," and knew
nothing of obstacles snch as those which
Elizabeth Gunning and Emma Lyon were
compelled to vcn-oaie. Victoria Maria
Louisa was the fourth daughter of the
Duke of Saxi- (Vtbotirg Saalfiild. Horn in
17, she married when 17 years old the
Prince of Ix-in-ngen. He died in 1M4, and
in his widow wedded the Duke of
Kent, fourth son of George HI of England.

Great Britain, was born to the pair. The

Americans generally are familiar with
the romance surrounding the family of
Baltimore rtiajMirtes. It was a notable
event when the belle of the Monumental
City married the brother of ihe Frencli
ruler and, hh the papers of the time de
flared, "cemented the alliance lietweeu the
countries of Washington aud Lafayette."
But the First Consul did not propose that
his linperutl plans should tie disturbed bv
an alliauce of this sort, and refused to re
gard his brother Jerome's regal wife as
anything save Miss Patterson. The divorce
which he insisted on caused a rupture be
tween NapoKnn and Pius VII, and the
Baltimore beauty insisting that she was

One of the lovely women of a past gener
ation well worthy of meiitiou is Elizabeth
K. Monroe, the wife of James Monroe, for
eight years president of the United States
Her maiden name was Kortright, and her
father had been a captain in the British
army. Mr. Monroe, when he secured her

The east ecd of Moiine is in the throes
of a sensation of a most peculiar tinJ.
The Republican says it hai been the prac
tice of a few women of th! neighborhood
to congregate and gossip over each oth
er's and everybody's busioiss of late, but
this has finally received a damper such as
will cause the said women to go about
their own business and let the affairs of
neighbors alone, for a time, at least. It
seems that one woman in particular was
very commaoicalive, and knew more of
her neighbors' transactions than she did
of her own was the fountain head of the
talk, as it were. The otier day she is
reported as haying said j ist a little too
much about her neighbor, which riled
them to such a degree thut they decided
upon a novel plan of siletcing the wom

but not with instruments bringing
forth beautiful music on the contrary,

Suddenly the woman o-r the bouse ap
