A woman of business, a woman who can

world. Once in a while such a woman
comes to the front and she is regarded as a
I had a talk with one of these fascinating
curiosities, t Her name -is Mrs. Ixiretta J.
Beard. In a word, she is at the head of a
variety of schemes. She is a promoter, and
apparently an indefatigable one.
Ax first Mrs. Beard was disinclined to
say anything about herself personally,
fearing that she would be "written up" in
the style of some Rushing journals. When
she got start ed in her plans, however, I
saw that sue could talk for a year and a
day on her plans.
She was bora in Cuba, forty-sis years
ago. 1 he name of her father, who was a
Spaniard, was Joaquin Velasquez. Her
mother was a French woman. Mrs. Beard
is a typical, go ahead western woman, not
only in manner but in dress. She has two
accents, onethe normal western, the other,
when excited, the Spanish. She has a firm
mouth, pale face and remarkably keen
She has been over the greater part of the
world; has wandered over a considerable
portion of South America, with whose re
sources she says she is particularly well ac
o.uninted, and has done some literary work
for various pt-ricdicals, home and foreign.
Her husband, C olonel . Beard, is an
Englishman, many years in this country,

on the Indian frontier, but was never a
According to the letters she showed me
Mrs. Beard has had an extensive acquaint
ance with public men, to whom she was
known as Mrs. J. Velasquez. Some of
these letters were from Senator Black
burn, of Kentucky; W. P. Hill, of Ohio;
the late Senator and ex-Judge L. Q. Larnar.
Senator Gordon, Senator Blair and several
congressmen and foreign officials. They
all appeared to be in nnswer to some re
quest, aud some were commendatory of
her business ability.
She told me she had given 8125,000 for
mines in South America, and that she was
the possessor of silver mines in Arizonit.
Mrs. Beard has a large numljer of "conces
sions' from Mexico and Honduras. One
is for a caual, another for a railway, an
other for a steamship company and so on.
One of her special enterprises is a mining

for wall paper, etc.
There is little discipline, little regularity
about art schools. Cooper alone has a
slight flavor of those qualities usually in
separable from the idea of a school. I do
not know whether to say because of this
fact or in spite of it Cooper is perhaps the
pleasantest place for a yonng girl to pursue
her studies. At the other schools no care
is exercised over the students in other than
school hours, and not much then. No re
munerative employment is furnished nor
advice given as to board or residence. The
students come and go as they please no
one takes nnynccount of them. If thev

that having chosen their career they will

The Woman Who Flenses.
"She knows just how to talk to all kinds
and conditions of men," was the recom
mendation given for a bright woman who
makes her living as much by her ability to
please as by her actual labors.
Seeing that woman afterward, and ob
serving her closely, one could not but be
impressed with the truth of what had been
said. She was gay with the gay, silent
when any one else wanted to talk, talka
tive with the shy, always good tempered,
never too animated, and never, never visi
bly in pain nor in tears. She was always
charming, bright, sympathetic and sweet.
She wa3 witty, too, but not terribly so.
She kept her wit to illumine conversation
and to lighten dull spirits, not to burn
hearts nor scorch sensitive feeling. Every
body went from her presence feeling com
fortable in spirit and with reasonably sat
She was a peacemaker and a courage
strengthener. There are two or three dozen
of such women in the world, und when you
find one she will tell you that it is almost
impossible for her to get an evening to her
self, because so many dear, kind friends are
apt to drop in of an evening. And she wu I
add: "I'm glad it's so, for I should not be

Teaching Repose of Manner.
At one of the fashionable schools up

pupils is an hour in which repose of man

POOR LO'S PAREJOAL AFFECTION.
Indian Chiefs Who Show the Deepest
LoTe for Their Children.
The Indian is generally not credited with
much regard or affection for his family,
but this impression was dispelled from my
mind during my trip to Pine Ridge. Of a
nnmoer ot friends I made among the In
dian chiefs, I will always remember Ameri
can Horse, a man of much prominence
among the friendly Sioux. When he
learned that I represented a newspap3r he
gave my hand a cordial shake and re
marked, "How cola, good." He had one
of his squaws with him, und through a

said, "How, good," and shook hands.
American Horse then brought out a young
pappoose of about 8 years of age, aau in
formed me that it was his youngest, and
then he patted the little one on the head
and gave it an affectionate squeeze.
In a joke I asked him what he would take
for the little Siouxvenir. He did riot first
understand whether I was in earnest or
joking, aad I was afraid I had offended the
old horse, but he shook his head, pointed
his finger toward a bunch of several hun
dred Indian ponies, then to a troop of cav
alry horses, stamped his foot upon trnr
earth and waved his hand about his head,
and I understood that not for all the horses
and ponies on earth would he part with his
child. He, however, did what he "6ould,
and cut an elk tooth ornament from the
little Sioux's dress and presented it to the
correspondent as a memento, and with a
grunt of satisfaction and another "How"

At the close of the Indian campaigr or

of the hospital corps at Pine Ridge, was at
that time stationed at Port Leavenworth,
and related another instance of Indian af

was regarded as humiliating and degrading

whose name has unfortunately slipped my
memory, was especially bending under the
imagined humiliation and made several
murderous attempts to escape. He had for
a squaw a member of another tribe, and
two boys were the result of the union.
Before the final transfer was made from
the fort to the territory the military con
cluded to separate the different tribes, and
while the Cheyenne hostiles were to be sent
to t he territory the others were to be re
turned to the north. This news was con
veyed to the Cheyenne chief, and the pros
pects that his sons should not share in his
disgrace gave him undisguised pleasure,
until he was informed that families would
not be separated and that they would have
to accompany him.
He grew morose and down hearted, and
one day he walked into the hospital, and
before any one was aware of his intentions
he had seized a pair of scissors and with
the point of it ripped a gash clear across
his abdomen from the left side to the right.
He expected to die, and said he wanted his
wife and children returned to their home
in the north, but his terrible self sacrifice
availed him nothing, for in spite of him
self he recovered, and with his family was
taken to the Indian Territory, where he
was lost to public notice. Omaha Bee.
The Joker Suffers by His Joking.
"Do you really think it injures a man to
be known as a joker?"
"It would bring him to failure in this
line of business," said the wholesale im
porter. "It would ruin him in our profes
sion," said the heavy lawyer. "It would
keep him out of our establishment," said
the head of a shipping firm. "It would
prevent him from getting any church,"
said the preacher. "It would destroy all
faith in his practical ability, ' said the dry
goods merchant. "It would not secure his
appointment by the board of education as
a teacher," said the pedagogue. "It would
never do in our line," said the manager of
a machine shop. "We could not give him
any responsible position," said the banker.
"We would not trust him here," said the
chief engineer. "It would not cause him
to lie trusted by big operators," said a Wall
street broker. "It would destroy his prac
tice among patients" said the doctor. "We
would be suspicious of his contracts," said
the contractor. "He would not be likely
to get promoted," said the policeman. "Not
if he was a real genuine original fresh
joker," said the joke editor of a jocular
weekly. "He could not wear my uniform,"
said the naval commander on his quarter
deck. "It would ruin him for our service,"
said the undertaker.
"So everybody is against us," groaned
the joker, after hearing these opinions,
"and yet I can get up a dime joke that
would make some of them sick." New

He is as quick as a flash of light, and
