It is both amusing nnd Instructive to note tho dlftcicnco in tho attitude of different women toward tho little cour tosies nnd acts of attention usually offered by men to women. In some women tliero seems to nn instinct al ways to cpcct these gallant attentions indeed, so strong Is" tho nstlnct that some women seem to assume the ntti tude of demanding them. Other wo men appear to bo totally unconscious that special consideration of any kind is due them because of their sex. And they really are unconscious of it. Yes tcrday a young woman clambeied into a Fifth-avenue stage in which wero sev oral other women and one man, who sat near tho faio-box. She was a very pretty young glil, and the man was palpably, and pioncilv anxious to bo of service to her. But without noticing in the least his polite interest in her welfare and his half-out stretched baud, sho walked steadily up tho swaying stage to the fare-box, passed up 1 to tho driver, dtopped her fare In the box and went back to her scat in utter ignorance and uncpucern that, during all that time, that pne man had been on the edge flLfienzy lest she ehoultl jiofbc-ubrb, first, to reach the box; second, to reach tho diiver: third, to count her change; fouith, to pay her fare, nnd fifth, to stand steadily on her feet while tho stngo lolled on. Just tho day beforo another young woman not so young nor so pietty, however, ns the other had entered a stngo in which there wero also several women and one man who sat, this time, down near tho door. Tho young woman seated herself on tho opposite sido of tho stage, and considniabiy nearer the fare-box. Thcn'she look "a nickel out of herpurso and looked helplessly about her. The man was looking out of tho window. Sho half rose, then sat down again and looked at tho box more help lessly than beforo. Finally she stood up, stepped down to whero the man sat, nnd holding out her nickel, said: "Will you he so kind, sir?" The point that makes these two inci dents worthy of comment Is that in both cases tho Instinct on the ono hand of self-helpfulness, and on the other of dependence on some man for service was so real nnd so devoid of affectation. Two women who had watched both these incidents with interest fell into a discussion over their goneral sig nificance. "Tho mind of a woman like that sec ond one," said tho first speaker, "must be like the moon thcio's always a man in it. Such unconscious reference in tho simplest .nets of lifotoa masculine prtsenco piovcs" that. And to my mind It isn't dignified or womanly. If a woman leaves her homo for auy pur poseto mako a call or go shopping sho is supposed to bo equal In body and mind to tho usual incidents of such a perfoimance. If she isn't sho ought to stay nt home. If she is able to take care of hciself why should sho bo al ways reaching out toward tho attention of the first man sho meets? There may be there occasionally are ttmeswhen some slight assistance from n stronger person than herself smoothes the way for a woman, but In tho mass of cases it is simply a case of vanity on her part seeking gratification. "And, as Stevenson would say, 'upon my soul, I thluk it less than decent.' " "Well," said the second, "I am a busy woman, ono of tho working women who oio supposed to have plenty of confidence and competence and not to nourish sentiment. And I trust I'm not wholly lacking in dignity and self-poise, but I do confess that a Ilttlo kindly attention on tho part of men just a little shade of difference nntl defeicnco In their manner becauso I'm n woman does me a woild of good. I have no instinct to exact it, but if they offer it I llko It. I llko to have a man let mo pass Into tho Elevated ahead of him; I llko to have him offer to tako my faro in a stage; I like to seo him lift his hat as ho passes mo on the stair; I like every nice little thing ho docs that icmlnds mo that this hard, bustling, busy world has a deal of kindliness left in it and unselfish consideration for others, nnd that thcio aro plenty of men who will still pan so for an Instant's special thought for a woman just be cause she is a woman nnd becauso they like to do it." All of which discussion simply goes to show Hint women do dlller mightily. THE BUSY BUILDING SEASON Tlicro's work for the hammer, the trowel and plnno The season for building once moiuUat hand.

J'romOitXiw Yorktun, "S oune Frederick Teed of Mnsonvlllo, N. Y , Is searching for the father or mother whom ho hns novcr consciously known. Masonvillo is n small and secluded farming hamlet away up among the hills nt tho headwaters of the Delawaro River. Hero came, nlong In 1872, a middle-aged stranger, appar ently of good social position and well versed in business methods, having with htm n brlcht llaxln-halrcd boy nbout 2 years old. Tho child .had nloo clothing and appealed to have been well cared for. Tlio stranger gavo tho namo of Dr. William Dunning, and stated that ho was officially connected with the New York City Board of Commissioners of Charities. Concerning tho child, ho said that it was born out of wedlock: that its mother died in gtvine it birth, that Its father was uuknownj'that It had been cared for so far at ono of tho city's charitablo Institutions', and that ho desired to find some good peoplo in tho country who would adopt It and uring it up. Mr. and Mrs. A. D. Teed, a childless pair, took a liking to tho bright Ilttlo waif and adopted It as their own, giving It tho name of Frederick Tccd. Lawyer James R. Baumes, then justico of the nenco and since countv iudgc of Dela waie County, drew up tho writings In connection with the surrender and adoption of tho child. When the trans action was completed Dr. Dunning dis appeared ns mysteriously as ho came, nnd fiom that day to this nothing has been heard of him In Masonvillo. When young Frcdorick Teed had crown up toward manhood ho naturally tried to find out something about his parentage nnd In this quest ho has been assisted by his foster father. The first Inquiry was made of tho Now York Commission of Charities, and ollcitcd the reply that no such poison as Dr. William Dunning over had any official connection with the board, ami there was nothing among Its records to Indicate that tho board had had any thing to do with tho Tccd child. Young Teed also vhltcd Christian 1C. Ross of Philadelphia, tho father of Charley Ross, hoping to gain somo knowledge from tho storcof information gathered by that gentleman In his long quest for tlio abducted boy that might throw some light cm his own origin, but in this hope lie was disappointed. Tho young man is cncouiagcd by many filcnds who havo become inter cstetl in the case to pursue tho truest. Tho notably superior appearance of Dr. Dunning, tho caro that had been lavished on the child in infancy and tho pains taken to hido it away in a remote and unfrequented locnllty aie mystcilous and extraordinary features that lead many to think that tho boy, even if illegitimate, may nt least have been tho offspring of refined and well to do parents. Tim ni:yv rATiiisu or tui: iiousi:. Tlio Honor Still FhIIh to tlio Lot. tit tlio Keyirono Stulo. I'mm Hit Xew Voil. Mar. Yesterday I saw Charles O'X 1 who, now that Mr. Randall Is dead, be conies the father of the House, bo fir ns length of service can mako him s Fortbiity years ho has been known among all blG friends and tho public ns well as "Charley O'Neil." Ho Is a short, stout man, with a full, lound, clean shaven face, and is a pcifect Chestcificld in dress aud manners. Mr. O'Nell was CO years of age last month, and if ho lives out his piesent term will havo served thhly years in Congress. While ho has uevor been anything of a speaker, and has attracted much less intention than many of tho older mem bers, his iufluenco has been felt in tho higher class of committee woik and In tho social Hfo of tho IIouso of Repre sentatives, wheio ho Is at home and ono of tho most popular members. Speaking of Mr. O'Nell lcminds mo that Pennsylvania has, for n long number of years, furnished tbo oldest member of Congress in continuous ser vice. Judge Kelly held that position longer than any man who evcrservod In tho legislative branch of this Govern ment. When ho died, tho mantle of seniority fell upon Mr. Randall, but ho died beforo he could enjoy any of its honorary privileges, lift his yoico or exercise any of his wonderful power on tho floor. Now it falls to Mr. O'Noll, who will wear it worthily, and when ho lays it down the next Pennsylvanlan longest in service is A. C. Hnrmcr, who will tako it up. It is rather singular that all four of these men should represent Philadel phia districts. The counties aro mora capricious and change their representa tives much oftenef. This has boon found to be a mistake. Experlonco shows that a man gets very little chauco in Congress until after he has been there three or four terms.

Neither tho good clothes nor tho coat-of-arms worn by the Duchess of Marlborough havo Interested tho ladles of New York as much ns tho slender proportions of her fteuro, says tho Now York World, At her first public ap pearance In tho Metropolitan Opera Ilouso, tho night Mine, i'nttl mado her debut, an exclamation of astonishment ran around the horseshoe. "How slightl" "A perfect thoroughbred1" "What has sho done?" "Whero Is her flesh?" is a samplo bf tho wondering Inquiry that passed from ciltic to critic. Tho duchess Is slight nnd n perfect thoroushbred In bearing nnd outline; her flesh has vanished, aud tho things sho has done, or rnthcr tho things sho has refrained from doing, entitle her to bo classed among tho heroines of so ciety. When sho married tho Duko of Marl borough Sho was moio than plump. Sho filled out cveiy crcaso and wtlnklo that eseancd her bodlcemakcr: ho breath was short, hor step considerably heavier than tho rustle of tho angels' wings nnd tho slightest exertion distressed her. Sho consulted nn uptown odiposo doctor, who, after careful diagnosis, pronounced her case chronic. Then she was plain Mrs. Haramcrsloy, hut a very pretty woman predisposed to tako up consiucramo room in tuo worm. "Lady Jono," tho doctor Informed her, "was shadowy by comparison to her possibilities." This revelation horrified the pretty widow, who at once offered superior financial inducement and pledged" her self to carry out minutely whatever Srcsciiptlon ho warranted to lcllovo er. A bargain was closed and tho treatment began at onco, nnd has been religiously adhered to ever since. Hero aro somo of tho restrictions: Not a morsel of bicad, ctiko lolls or pastry.

No warm baths No flannel, and only enough clothing to keep from taking cold. No bedroom heat. Not a drop of any liquid food at meals. In nlaco of bread she had fruit, a sec tion of applo or orango; some fresh grapes, berries, cherries or stowed fruit being used whero ordinarily ono craves a bit of bread or a swallow of wntcr. Hor diet was limited to two meals a day, breakfast at 10 and dinner at 7, with tho following bill of faro to select tiom: Rare, lean mcuts, game and poultry.soft boiled eggs, 6ea foods, toast, lettuce, spinach, celery, cresses, fruits. She had half a gallon of hot water to drink eveiy day, with lemon juico iu it to take away tho fiat taste. Cold water was denied her, and ales, frappes, champaeuo and claret strictly forbid den. She was even forced to forego the luxury of bathing in water, in placo of which sho had sponge nnd vapor baths. Every few days sho took a fast, allowing tho system to consumo the adiposo tissue. While no limit was put upon tho plcasuio of dilvlng or riding, sho was asked to select the roughest, rockiest roads, and lo walk fiom flvo to ten miles a day In the open air.
