Sunshine Bovrlidge, of Call
ormils, the Only Female Blaok. , smith in Amerioa S B sent to ahiogiro as a Feature of the Big w eld4 of Labor for 'the le--Miss lay at the Foyge-lier Uniform. California will send at least one unique hibit to the Colombian exposition in the son of Miss Bay Sunshine Beveridge, loksmith. The lady and her singular boloe of occupation have been mentioned 4 the San Francisco Examiner, but it war *0 known until recently that the Cqli rnia world's fair commissioners had in d her to go to Ohicago and set up her orge in the California aggregation. Per ape to James D. Phelan, more than any ther, is due the interest taken in Miss Bev ridge and her art. As moon as that com leloner learned that Miss Beveridge had sken up blackemithing serionuly and was bowing an unusual degree of proflloenoy or one so new to the study he offered en buragement, and suggested that the lady ould be a most attractive feature of the ifornia showing if she could be induced o work at her forge during part of each y. Miss Beveridge consented, and will epresent the blacksmiths of the state at hioago. She was found yesterday deep in the itudy of problems in welding and forging er her hot blast and anvil in the smithy nnex of the Cogswell Polytechnic, where heis learning the trade from Instructor Mathis. The ironworking room was not clean; it was smutty and full of pungent moke. A smore of anvils were elanging as tardy youths beat upon them, but Miss veridge worked on as though all black miths were feminine and she was not the ole American practitioner of an art that night profitably engage many of the un mployed women of the country. She was fitly attiied for her work. Over ter shoulders were unmistakable suspend _re to distribute the weight of her skirts and give her freedom of movement. Her pleeves were rolled above her elbows and exposed arms that were browned and sinewy. An ample apron of leather shielded the woolen fabrics of her costume from fly ing sparks of hot metal, and the only sug gestion of unfitness for the dust and smoke was in a pair of dainty boots which paddled about the sloppy floor near her forge as though they were made for that purpose and not for a drawing-room. A dab of soot on her nose and sundry smntchea on her face and arms gave an air of realism to the scene and showed the ear nestness of the lady who could forget her primness in her devotion to blacksmithing. The forge fire was troublesome because it was urged only by a hand-blast, while at the others any desired strength of air-our rent could be maintained by merely open ing a valve connecting with a steam blowe -, but Miss Beveridge did not mind tihe an noyance or additional labor. While ham rering and shaping the bits of iron on which she was working the fire would al most die out. 'Ihen to reheat her metal the lady was compelled to turn the crank of her blast engine until her f re glowed, which caused lose of time and waste of et:ength, but the labor was cheerfully performed, and the pleasure of the laborer was easily to be seen when the proper treatment had fashioned some part of the fancy forging just right and had left the iron smooth as though the skill of her master. Mathis, had done the work. It war no toy forge at which Miss Beveridge was engaged, but of the kind furnished for the use of mines, mills and wherever frequent use of an intense heat is necessary, as in the repointing of drills and picks or the welding of tamping-bars and the doing of general smithy work. If it was unlike the commonly accepted "forge" of stonework, before a huge chimney and with a monster bellows in a corner behind to wheeze in response to the tugging of the blacksmith or his helper, it was only be cause the "forge" of the forefathers has been exterminated by the neat and effective constructions of the day. At Miss Beve ridge's forge the tire of the truck might easily have been raised to welding heat, or a needle tempered, yet the contrivance could have been picked up by a man of ordinary strength. The feminine wielder of the sledge is petite, but there was noth ing about her little forge to make her seem smaller. The forge, however, was the only one of the tools that seemed in keeping with the slightness of the artisan. At one time she would be swinging a hammer that weighed twelve pounds, and a moment later would drop it to grab some other implement as muchb too heavy for her. hands. When there is heavy welding or drawing to be done, the lady is usually assisted by some one of her boy companions in the smithy or by her instructor, Mathis, but she is slow to admit the need of such help, and is some times found struggling with a bit of work calculated to tax the strength of a man. huch occasions are not frequent, however, because it is not to the more common branches of blacksmithmng that Mies Beveridge is giving her attention. Her purpose is to become accomplished in the making of ornamental forged iron work, in which it is rare to find any single piece that cannot readily be manipulated by a woman, or if when an ornament must be iut together and finished greater strength is needed there are slings and cranes and other devices in plenty which enable the woman still to be mistress of the situation. It is the belief of Miss Beveridge that in designing curious and attractive iron orna maents womanly fancy will prove itself more alet and dainty than that of man, and thereby both increase present demands for such handiwork and create new markets. As part of her scheme of manual education she is to study designing, drawing and mod. elin, and she is encouraged in thinking that she may rise above mediocrity because her present experience has shown that she is gifted with a fine appreciation of form relations and color. When to such natural adaptations the lady has added the finish of the schools, she will call herself a black smith, but not before. At Chicago she will demonstrate her abil ity to do work that will sell for good prices, and thereby prove that in one form of arti eanship at least woman may be self -sustain ing. Another of her self-imposed duties will be to show and explain the methods used in accomplishing her work, so that their simplicity may be generally understood and her example be followed by other women. The precise iplaon in the exposition to which she will be asligned is not known, but the managing directors of the fair have expressed gratineation at Mr. Phelan's unique exhibit, and have promised that suitable provision shall be made ror Miss Beveridge and her workshop. A place near or in the machinery depart ment would be preferred by the lady, in order that she may utilize steam power as much as possible, but she is willing to undergo any inconveniences, and will do so. The diminutive blacksmith was a pretty picture yesterday, when, after a long period of labor, she flounced down upon i~er anvil for a season of rest. The un studied grace of her position was like that of a child, and her grimy hands and face had an arpropo late background in the bench covered with half-worn tools and all the litter of a working blacksmith.
