4 WOMEN IN UTERATURL
rihe Dlstinetive Quality eOfT imailsty that owe Prevalle. There used to be in the literature pro duced by women a distinct quality t femn ininity. It is not so common as it once was, although names of living writers might be given r hose work has it. Blt not to excite the animosity of any who would dislike to be accused of It, we may safely go to a re mote past for an examplee and we certainly shall not give offense by recalling the let ters of Mema de Sevigne. This delightful quality whiab everybody recognises has a ocarm quite distinct from any grace of style as it is usually defined. It as indefiuable as the charm of a beautiful woman. The most that we can say of it is that it is a note of femininity. No meat, whatever his esprit, or his deli Escy, or his lightness of touch, has ever bad it, not eves the most effeminate among men writers. It is a most desirable and valuable quality, and the one quality that women can and men cannot contributo ;o literature. In these days most women con sider it a compliment if their anonymous writings are taken to be the productions of men. And men-they are still so ungul lant-would be annoyed if this careless judgment be passed upon their work, 'Sounds as if it were written by a woman." It is understandable why wtomen wish to be thought to write like men on the theory that literature, liko other art, is sexless, and that there is only one standanl of ex cellence. But. it is not understandable why women, enfranchised andl come as an equal into the kingdom of letters, shoouhl wish to drop a quality so fascinating and so full of poteneyanud charm as that we are speaking of. Practically in her competition with men she has dropped it. We encounter it less anid less. Andt it is i grOve lquestion ,whether the re-enforcement of literat ure by an increasing numblor of wo.men who write so that their productions cannot be distin guished from those of men is a compensa tion for the loss of this lovely quality of feminiuity. Is it necessary that women in gaining knowledge and skill should sacrifice this most exquisite expression of woman as woman-that is, the expression of a charm which is one of the few notes of reminis cence of our fallen state? It is noteffemi nacy. In the common meaning it is not lack of virility, Iwit it is the counterpart of that quality which is etymologically strict ly derived from the word "vir." It is for women to say whether literature is to lose this quality.-Charles Dudley Warner in Hiarper's. The Pages of the Senate. Of all the 110 appointments under the aergeanut-at-arms of the tnited States sun ate those of the pages only can be said to be nonpolitical. No boy can be appointed a page of the senate who is not 12 years of age, and no boy can continue as a page who is 18 years of age at the beginning of a ses sion-of congress. It is a lucrative position, and few of the boys-are not sorry when their term has ended. Usually four of the boys who are gradnated from the page's position at the beginning of a session are appointed riding pages. Their selection depends on their records for efficiency and faithfulness. The page on the floor of the senate draws $2:50 a day during the session of congress. The riding page receives 8l.50 a day the year around and has a horse to ride. IIis duties keep him out of doors a great part of the timle, carrying messages between the capi tol and the departments. The position is considered more desirable than that of a page. The page's life is a pleasant one. Ioe must be on duty at 9 o'clock each morning, but the serious business of the day does not begin until noon. when the senate meets. Before that time Learrmuges the tiles of the Congressional Record and the bills and re ports on the desks of the senators who have been assigned to him. There are itt pages and 8Q senators, so none of the pages lhas very much to do. The morning hours are not all working hours. There is a gymna, slum in the basement of the capitol for. nished especially for their use. They ex erise their arms and their ohests there every morning; their legs get plenty of ex ercise through theday.-Washington Star. Beklei's Alnla B.alve The Best Salve in the world for Cute, Bruisel.
