OUK FIRST LADY.
Mrs. E. F. Altgeld, Wife of the
A WOMAN OP GRACE AND CULTURE.
She Does Not Rejoice OTer Her Haaband'a
Victory Fond of Hoaae aad Club Ufa.
A slender woman, graceful and tall, of
quiet, unassuming presence, although
wben approached most kindiy and cor-.
dial in her manner, is Mrs Altgeld, wife
of tbe newly elected governor of Illinois.
It is in her cozy and i retty home that
she is seen to advantage. While she is a
club woman, she is also essentially a
borne woman. Not that she is domestic
in the sense of finding tbe ultima thule of
existence in her household cares, for she
is an artist of no mean ability, aa un
tiring student end a writer 'or tbe press.
Still, all that she is and accomplishes is
not for ambition's sake, but for her ha e
and her husbsi.d. -All that mieresio
Jude Altgeld is vital to ber in that she
is bis intelligent companioa in all that
he undertakes. Especially is she inter
ested in his v'ews in regard to the crim
inal and laboring classes, HLd, although
she has never identified herself with any
oreaniz&Mon, "be is unwearying in good
unices to tbe unfortunate-
While quite natural y Mrs. Altgeld did
not want to see her husband defeattd,
she certainly is tbe reverse of jubilant at
his election. She said in speaking of it:
Leaea a Trip Arosad the World.
"While, of course, I could not truth
fully say that I regret that my husband
is elected, still neither can I sav that I
am glad. You see, he promised me tha
if be was defeated be would take me
around the world." However, fer the
present at least fate seems to have de
creed that a small part of tbe world shall
evolve around Mrs. Alteeld. Tnat it
should be so, while she does not exactly
resent it. is evidently not in the line of
her las e or her ambition. While fond
of ber friends and in a quiet way of dis
pensing hosDitality, she is not in the
usual acceptation of the term a "society
woman. She takes her husband's elec
tion as simply an incident in tbeir lives
of by no means vital moment. Her
ousin, Mis. E. G. Frszer, of Rock
Island, who is tpeLdiog a few weeks
with her, declares that neither Judge
Altgeld nor his wife was as interested
uesaay evening in the election returrs
as in a game of euchre that they were
rU3 mg with a few friends who haj
peneri in to discuss tbe "situation-"
Ruy Woman of Advanced Ideas.
Mrs. Altgeld is a native of Mautfielfl
Ohio, and was educated at Oberlin. In
conversation she betrays that her convic
tions ace nlonu the line of what is known
as a jv-ni:ea laeas. airnougn sne Is no
propaeantiist and entertain her beliefs
as logical concisions, and therefore as a
matter of course. She said, in speakinu
of the technicality by which women are
not permitted to vote on all question t
pertaining to school matters, that to her
it seemed abt-urd to bring forward such a
trivial matter as the mi-re mistaken form
of words when tbe spirit and it tent of
the law are perfectly evident.
Mrs. Altgeld i9 a busy woman, send
ing out each moment freighted with ef
rott. In addition to looking well after
the ways of her household according to
the definition in the bonk of Proverbs of
a model wife, she devotes much attention
to the earnest study of art. The chief
attractions of her pretty drawing room
are v trious studies from nature from her
brush. She uses oil, water colors or
crayon with equal facility and alfo paints
on china. It is plain that in this line of
Sort she takes the keenest interest, as
wnen the eur ject of art is introduced her
dirk eyes light up and She evinces an en
icusiaora wmca renders ner quite
CIohp Student of Lit erature.
Her liking for literature is scarcely
less man mat wnicn sue reels for art
For several years she has devoted hersslf
to the 8'udy of the leading literature of
different countries, both in connection
with a small club or North fide women
called the A'pha, and by herself. !?be
declares that the pursuit of thie course of
s .udy has afforded her tbe livliest satis
faction. She has for s' me years been a
member of the Chicago Women's Club
and belongs to tbe art and literature de
partment. She is to deliver an essay
btfore the department Feb. 8 on "The
Munich School of Art "
While evidently well posted on matters
political, Mrs. Altgeld says that she feels
less interest in thia subject than in almost
any other.. Indeed, it is quite evident
that to be "the first lady in the state" is,
from every point of view, a sacrifice to
Mr. Altgeld as far as ber own personal
inclinations are corcerned Both she
and her husband attend Prof. David
Swing's church, although they are not
tnerao rs They were at one time mem
ber of 'he Meihodisi church.
Mrs Altgeld is so es entially' a modest
woman that one might know ber as a
casual acquaintance for years and still
know very little of her. One who has
been an intimate of bera for many years
say s of her that she is not only one of the
most faithful of friends, but that she is
one who is ever surprising those who
know ber bust by constant revelations of
admirable traits of character Certain it
is that among those who have the pleas
ore of her intimate acquaintance there is
perfect unanimity of opinion as to her
genuine worth as well winsomeneaa.
A Valuable Bemedy.

given some to friends suffering with weak

They cannot be too highly commended."
