POLITICIAN. ttewrvMsa Espocial Diploma Belva IxM-k.-wood's Victory In Virginia Iajb.iotts In Vrecious Stone An x:nlis1x Criticism. Sex and Salary. Now that Crolcer has resigned his leadership in Tammany his wife is as happy as any wife in this broad land. Mrs. Croker is a large, handsome) wom an, with a face showing f-ig"us of gTeat mental power, and her children admire and love her aa much almost as does their quiet, stern father. Despite her strong nature, however, she waa exceed ingly sensitive to the rancorous criticism showered upon her husband -an 1 feels immensely relieved that he hits by re Bigning ceased to offer himself as a tar get for political abuse. She is a rich woman and now feels that the social as pirations which she has bo long re pressed maybe given scmomeed cf free dom. Mrs. Croker's fondness for domestio life means fondness for her plowing family. The truth of this may be pauged from the fact that she has six living children. Three of the children born to her are dead. Of the surviving ones four are boys. The eldest is about 19. Mrs. Croker herself t-hops in the mornings in company now and then with little Flos sie, the heroine of Hugh Grant's famous gift of money, who is yetting to be real ly a young lady. The other children are of course quite young. The family moved into their own house recently, but pre vious to that lived at the Windsor hotel. On one evening she was ths most mag nificently dressed woman in a hotel far famed for its millionaire guests. Perhaps the most striking feature of this partic ular hotel dinner party was the costume of the two Croker boys present. They were in full evening dress, as- correct and sober as if fashioned for old men of the world, although they could not have been aged more than 9 and 12 years respectively. Mrs. Croker affects light, neutral tints in dress. She is generally sparing in tlio use of jewelry and seldom displays her diamonds. Mrs. Croker dines in the mid dle of the day unless ehe lias guests, but even then the chief meal is at 1 o'clock. Her tea is get ready for C:3t) every day. These are her favorite meal hours. Mrs. Croker is an early riser, a is her husband. 3 Irs. Croker's d mies-tiij duties are in a measure lightened by u housekeeper, who is practical ly steward ess of the mansion on Seventy-fourth street. There are also three other serv ants. Mrs. Croker, among her other re tainers, employs a seaiastress, who is kept busy for weeks at time. She sews not merely the garments of the house hold, but makes over numbers cf dress es. New York Correspondent. Ieserves ati Especial IMplonia. Among the graduates from Smith's college this year is a young woman who deserves an especial sort of diploimi. She is 3Iiss Alice Martin of St. Louis, and four years ago. when she In gan the freshman course, she was counted as one of the wealthiest girls in the college. Returning home at the close of her sophomore year, she found that every vestige of her father's property bad been swept away. Instead of giving up in de spair, as some girls would have done, she at once determined to complete her collegiate education whatever the cosr. She therefore secured a position as teach er of French in the public school iu Old Hadley, a bit of a village- aboat three miles from "Smith, " to and from which she has walked every day for the past two years. ' She also, in company with another not. too wealthy girl, went into very cheap lodgings outside the campus, cooking their own meals and in every possible waj reducing their expenses. She earned money, too, by 'coaching" backward and lazy pupils, and last fall she undertook to make all the new gym nasium suits needed a pr( tt.v heavy contract, but one which paid well and which she accomplished successfully. In person 3Iiss 3Iartin is a slender, wiry little body, with a picturesqueiiess of feature that is most attractive. Besides her pluck and energy she was one of the highest students in the college, all of which goes to show what may bo achieved by tho woman who makes up her mind to win. New York Fvecorder. Belva Iioekwood's Victory. . Through persistent effort 3Irs. Belva A. Lockwood has gained another victory for herself and for women. The Virginia court of appeals, with a full bench present, has decided that she is eligible to practice law in that state. Her coun sel was Judge Joseph Christian, a former member of the court. The court some weeks ago by a tie vote decided against Mrs. Lockwood. The present decision is reached by the additional presence of Judge Richardson. For four years a struggle has been going on in Virginia to get the legislature to pass an act per mitting properly qualified women to practice law, but without success. In the last legislature the bill was lost by, a considerable majority, one member de claring in the debate that if Virginia women were allowed to practice law it would lead to "the downfall cf Anglo Saxon civilization." Mrs. Lockwool's victory of course opens the dosr to all of her sex who can pass the examination. The Staunton (Va. ) Vindicator says, "Whatever may be the prejudices of men on this subject, there is hardly a thoughtful one who will not gladly rec ognize that another tield is open to wom an in Virginia in some departments of which she may add to her opportunities to gain a livelihood." Fashions In Precions Stones. In France, by the way, at present pearls and rubies are the most fash iona ble gems. As regards diamonds, the Duchess Doudeauviile and the Countess Pourfal&s have introduced the following mode: A ribbon is tied around the neck, with a bow covered with tiny diamonds. t a t 1 . f d : I i" .ii frr 1 'A -U tt . THREE VERY SEASONABLE COWNS. The figure in the center shows a dotted swisi muslin frock, with Russian lace ruffles and Hat triimiaug. The belt is of cherry moire and has loops and ends in the back. The figure at the riht shows a frock of fi ured. iridescent taffetas, with a deep bertha and shoulder caps of plain silk. The figure at the left represents an apple green challie, with self rutfles at the bottom aud a fichu bertha edged with white embroidery. The yoke is shiri-ed. Coming to turquoise, those of gi-eat beauty are becoming rarer and rarer. If a turquoise be of any particular value, it must hail from the old mines, be very close aud beautifully polished. When a turquoise is worn, so we are told by ex perts, by sickly persons, or by ladies with a bad complexion, ths stone as sumes a greenish dull color. Happy, therefore, are the wearers whose tur quoises have a bright blue color, as such women must enjoy excellent health and have a hue complexion. The Baroness Burdett-Coutts possesses one of the fin est collections of turquoises in the world, the smallest being valued at from 5,000 to 6,000 francs. The empress of Russia and the Comttsse Ue Pax-is likewise pos sess famous collections of turquoises, but perhaps the choicest stone in exist ence is that oaco owned by the notorious 3Iaharajah Dhuleep Singh, ex-king of Lahore.- Ladv's Pictorial. An Knglish Critii-ism. An English woman who is visiting in this country writes home to a newspa per friend, who promptly puts it into print, that what surprises her most is that many American women wear ball attire while receiving their guests in the afternoon. She describes the effect as most incongruous and pictures a mother and four daughters wearing de collete white satin gowns, loaded with Bowers and jewels, standing at the head of a staircase, shaking hands with a large contingent of friends in hats and coats. It does seem odd when you think of it; but, after all, it is merely a matter of custom. A low corsage and no sleeves to speak of is the correct dinner dress, from the English fashionable stand point, hut there are many critics who hold that the dinner board is not at all the place where such a generous display of fleshly attractions should be tolerated. Mrs. Peary did not admire the Eskimo women, and they in turn didn't admire her. They found her too tall and too larry because she didn't chew the bird skins for her dress. And so it goes. Sex and Salary. There are reported to be 1S5 male teachers in the public schools of Boston and 1,372 -women. The average salary of the men per month is 246. 06, and the average sala- j ry per month of the women is ?;T0. 69. I To what extent the larger salary is a j bonus to the male sex is an interesting question. Doubtless the fact that many j of the higher salaried posts are held by j men accounts for more or less of this disparity, but it by no means accounts for all. So far as a man receives higher remu neration than a woman can secure foi the same labor this excess is a pure bo nus handed over on account of sex. Of course old but not venerable cus tom sanctions the payment to women of less for the same labor and service than is paid to men, but this is an ago when equal rights are supposed to be main tained and fair play to all is supposed to rule. Why are women still paid less for the same work than men receive? Who knows? Boston Crlobe. Lflndun Women's Iatest Fad. English women of the "smart set" seldom if ever either wear or carry flow ers to the opera. It is considered "bad form." But women even English women are contradictory. The latest fashionable freak among women who are blessed with pretty hands is to wear an immense ring like a Roman Catholic bish&p's on the first linger of the right hand. It used to be considered the height of vulgarity to place a ring on the index finger, but now this decora tion is the '"dernier cri. " The ring must be a superb cue and must not partake of the slender and graceful daintiness of the "marquise" circle. It must he sol id, big and respectably ecclesiastical in its appearance. The feminine mind, al ways desirous of presenting contrasted effects to pxir humanity, sees the deli cately sarcastic anomaly of a little, white, frivolous looking hand wearing a big, aggressively solid sort of ring.
