Tho warm littlo city is de eidedly opposed to innovation, exotipt rnUvoRd innovation, which ia received with open arms. Consequently Fresno turned licit and then cold, although not very cold, when Governor Budd recent ly appointed a woman to be notary pub lic in the place. When sha Fet tip her desk, tho whole town rnddenly discov ered that it needed au affidavit of some sort, and nil tlio city canto round to see. The new notary reaped a theaf of shin ins; silver, gravely atiixed seals and ad-niir.i-tered oaths and profited by the widespread curiosity.

She has always been possessed of what Mary Wilkins calls "faculty, ir.id has lielped all her life at offering iiii'.nceiiients t.. the wolf to sit at some o:ie el.-e's (ioortop. She was born in west era Illinois, where they grow people of indomitable pluck, and her father was a frugal farmer with a largo family, which was. as 1?:11 Nye would say, "composed prin cipally of boys and g;rls. " The children were all healthy, with the normal appe tite of childhood, and those who ob-t-orved found out what it meant to have your liabilities and your asset.-) a perpetual equation. This tme particular daughter was an exceedingly studious child to whom books were a delight and the chimney corner, with a magazine, a have!) of refuge. Sho ranked high iu the district school and had college aspirations after tho fashion of girls in the middle west. But tho much coveted prize of a classic al education always dangled just be yond her reach. There was not educa tion enough to go round, and in the equal division between many applicants tho shares were not l.uge. To revenge herself upon fate the girl, who pre ferred oven a fresh water college to none ut all, has been a student all her life, setting apart u certain hour, no matter how busy tho days, for hard study, without dilettante-ism. After awhile there was a wedding on the Illinois farm, and 12 years ago Mr. and Mrs. Coke, with their child, came to California. They wont to Woodland, where they lived on a little ranch for several years. Iu order to assist her hus band Mrs. Coke became a bookkeeper in a dry goods store. Presently sho went to Fresno to accept, a bettor position ia the same line which had been offered her. and while there was left a widow. With her own support and the support and education of her daughter to pro vide for Mrs. Coke looked rather seri ously into the future. Tho problem was no longer how to eko out the living tho small ranch supplied, bnt how to fet d two mouths End fill one small head with learning with two hands that wero very quick and capable, but not over skilled. While clerking in a store Mrs. Coke began to study shorthand and typewriting without a teacher. It was not such an easy task. After waiting on the people all day she brought a rather tired head to her self appointed task each night, :;nd without a teacher to guide and inspire it needed all tho Illi nois courage and tho schooling of life on a small farm to keep her from be coming discouraged iu her attempt to master the mysteries of hooks, crocks, dots and angles. But some people thrive on obstacles, and Mrs. Coke is of that species, rapidly becoming extinct. After acquiring a degree of proficiency she entered tho law office of Frank H. Short, where sho now is, nnd daintily picked her way through tho legal jar gon, at first, stumbling over "incor poreal hereditaments," "certiorari" and other sweethearts of the common law. But sho stuck to it, and is now ranked among tho mt proficient law stenographers in California. San Fran cisco Chronicle. rtnndsmnest Woman In London. It is now tou yeai-s since the beautiful Lady Ileleu Venitia Buncombe made her bow to Lor.dou society under tho ehaperonag of her sister, the Duchess of I.-sinstT. Her grace's death leaves Lady Helen Yinernt, us she has now be come, the most bountiful woman of London sooiet y. She is of slender figure, with u perr et bust, full arms, and a face exouisitely chiseled aud denoting intelligence of a high order. .Her skin is white with tho whiteness of snow; her eyes are a light blue. Her husband, Sir Edgar Vincent, not so many years ago was voted the handsomest man in the household troops, to which he be longed, in tho capacity cf captaia cf ) ... A JL- t i ' i f ' tho Coldstream guards. At present he occupies tho lncratiyo position of finan cial adviser to the khodive and director general of the Ottoman bank. Lady Helen comes from a stock that has given England many beauties. Her great-grandmother on her mother's side was known as "the beautiful Miss Lin ley," and became the wifo of Richard Brinsloy Sheridan, author of "The Ri vals," himself a very good looking man. Other descendants of Sheridan noted for their beauty wore Lady Sey mour, afterward Duchess of Somerset, at one time Englatid's crowned "Queen of Beauty," and tho mother of tho present Marqnis of Dnfferin. And all these women not only inherited the good looks for which their brilliant an cestor was noted, but also some at least of the esprit and wit. that made his farao. Lady Vincent was the brightest of tho Dunconibe sisters and did not mako tho mistake of marrying for lovo and position alone, like her late sister, the Duchess of Leinster. Her grace, while iu the flesh, was always hard pressed for money, and was very glad of tho several hundred pounds per year which (he enormous sales of her photographs yielded her. Sir Edgar Vincent is a mil lionaire and is growing richer every dav. Munsev's. PRi:cl(ter of tho Confederacy. The patriotic women's societies of tho country are u v re -enforced by another, tho National Daughters of the Confed eracy, which has for its object a sister hood of the various organizations of women in the south. It is nonpolitieal aud is designed solely to cultivate the ties of friendship among tho southern women. This new association embraces several others, such as the Monumental association, organized for the purpose of erecting a tribute to tho dead at Mount Olivet, and tho Ladies' Auxiliary, the first assiviarieu of women in the south formed to act with gentlemen. The Ladies' Auxiliary, in conjunction with tho men. applied to tho legislature for a portit n of the old Hermitage tract. This was given, with a sum sufficient to put the place in order and erect the comfortable quarters which now shelter almost. 100 old soldiers. Last autumn the Nashville daughters invited the members from other states who had also united for the same pur pose to form a national association, and this has recent lv been accomplished. Mrs. M.

Lady Dudley, whose husband has re ceived one of tho minor parliamentary offices iu connection with the now Salis bury administration, is probably the only peeress of the realm who has risen from the rank of a bona fide shopgirl to her present social eminence. True, ehe bore prior to her marriage tho name of Gurney, one of the most ancient in Norfolk, one of her ancestors having been that Thomas de Oourney who murdered King Edward II in such an appalling manner with hot iron bars. Tho yoni:g countess' father, however, mer with business reverses and was compelled to resign his partnership in i ho Onrney bank, as well s to surrender all his possessions for the benefit of his creditors. Mrs. Gurney thereupon opened a mil liner shop iu London, bat met with scant sravefs, her two daughters, who had acted as assistants, ultimately be coming saleswomen in the Regent street store of the modiste. Mme. Elise. About a year previous to Lord Dud ley s marriage the now widowed Duch ess of Bedford and her sister, Lady Henry Somerset, interested themselves in behalf of tho two young girls aud removed them to more congenial sur roundings. Rachel, the eldest, became a member of the household of tho duch ess, while the younger, now Lady Trow bridge, was adopted by Lady nenry Somerset. It was as the adopted daugh ter of tho Duke and Duchess of Bedford that Rachel Gurney married yotmg Lord Dudlcv. A Re! to of llarbarlsm. Rc-v. J. S. Withrow of the Third Presbyterian church, Chicago, says: Denying woman any place or part iu society or state just because she is a woman aud granting the same to man jr.st because ho is a man is, in my judgment, a mean relic cf barbarism. Tho tact that seme women do not desire the franchise has nothing to do with the duty of the state to grant it. If ihey should fail to exercise their grnnted right, it would be no more than men are doing. When it is said that it would coarfen women to mingle with men in political competitions, I venture tho in quiry. Why would not tho saving virtues of womanhood rather conquer tho coarseness of men? But. with tho conse quences to her we are not called in the first instance to deal. Banish nnd bury tho barbaric ideas a:id usages which de bar htr from what the male gender en joy on the sole ground of their sex, and when all snch inequality is removed allow her as much freedom as fathers, brothers ami sons to say what she will choose to do and what not. As to the am plest opportunities and privileges, feel lug the "attitude" of my own congre gation in regard to the elation of wom en as trustees, direct or . '.nd to other offices in tho church, it ii;s not been a mooted matter. But it is my opinion that all feel sure there is nothing stand ing ia the way of women's elevation in our church.

The greatest and the lowest sums arc alike received by them in this profes sion, while the averago is probably as good as that received by women work ers in any other field. Mme.

Wmncin Engineer, Miss Marian Parker of Detroit is tho first woman to graduate from tho engi neering department of the University of Michigan. She won tho degree of bach elor of science in civil engineering, took the full course, snd stood well at the head of her class. Her object, she says, is to become a practical architect. There are now only about f0 or 60 women in this profession, one in Philadelphia, two in New York, several in New Or leans and others scattered about. Miss Parker's thesis for graduation was a do sign for a fireproof apartment building, on which she spent nearly tho whole of her last semester, although not constant in her work.

A few minutes later, "Mr. Bus kin was soated on a divau. The three children were round him. Neither tho warden nor Mrs. Talbot was then pres ent. No sound save the exquisitely modulated voice soft, sympathetic, penetrating, 'This giant brandished a big sword, then leaped upon a big brown horse. ' It was a charming tab leau.
