Although not to the manor born, by
brilliaucy, forco and dotormined porse
voranco Mrs. I'arau Stevens had at
tained tho highest position on tho lad*
dor of social tamo. No woman in tills
city or country, tho llritiih Islos or on
the continent of Europo was bottor
known, and hor namo win a* familiar as
houjohold words, Sho was a woman of
ability, strong character and dotormlna
tion, and in any venture she undertook
she generally succeeded. Sho was also
of a kindly disposition, although not
charitably disposed, but was possoaiod
of a will power which drew to her all
on whom sho oxertod it, Thero is por
haps no woman?unloss it bo tho
crownod heads of Europe?who has met
so many noted and cultured pooplo of
every nationality and clime as Mrs. Sto
vous, and certainly no ono has onter

A LOWELL FACTORY OIRU I
Mrs. Stovena was born in Lowell,
Mass., nearly seventy years ago, and as
Marietta lloid, passed hor girlhood in a
factory in that city. Sho was a most
beautilul creaturo, tall and dark, with a
shapely figure. It is said that sho was
evon handsomer than hor daughtor,
Mrs. Arthur Paget, who, as Minnio Slo
vens, was, and is still, an extremely
beautiful woman. Marietta Reid grew
up as most Now England girls wiiowork
for a living grow no. Tho little educa
tion she had a* a irirl was attainod at tho
public 6chool and nftor work was over
for tho day at the factory. .Sho was tho
bollo of the little New Kngland town,
and the swains of the villago woro ovor
ready to do hor bidding. Tiring of factory
life alio went to Boston and thero met
hor husband tho lato Paran Stevens,
who at this time was employed in thn
Tremont house. Mr. Slovens was a wid
ower and had ono daughter, who at tho
presont day is Mrs. John Malchor, but
Who then hold a position in tho holol.
WAS A BOSTON BELLE.
Mr. Stevens, who was old onough to
be hor fathor, married tho boautiiul
Lowell girl, and it may bo said that
from this marriage Mrs. Stevens's rise
in tho social world comtnonced. In
those davs the old Tremont House was
tho fashionablo hotel in Boston, and
its corridors woro throngod with tho
reproientaiivo mon, not only of tho city
of Boston, but also of the country, while
its parlors were overrun with tho
wealth and fashion of the city. Mrs.
Stevens came in contact with these peo
ple, attracted attontlon and won their
admiration. This hobnobblug with the
fashionablo world of Boston, evon it it
woro onlv in tho parlors of the Tre
mont, fired Mrs. Slovens with tho ambi
tion and ardent desiro to bccome bottor
educated. Accordingly, with that iron
porievorenco which has followed her
through life, ahe net to work and edu
cated hersolf by study and reading, and
it wa9 not long before ahe was rogarded
as a brilliant woman.
HER EDUCATION" COMt'LETBP.
Thcro was no subjoct with which aho
was not convorsaut and no topic of the
day upon which aho could not convorae
with forco and discorament. She soon
mastered foreign languages.so that aho
could both road and write thom fluent
ly. So rapid was her progress that tho
brightoat minds of Boston viaitod tho
Tremont to chat with this little Lowell
woman of brilliant mind.
Tho Trotnont changed hands, and ono
day found Mr. Stovena at tho head of
tho hotel. As wifo of tho proprietor,
Mrs. Stevens's aphoro of social impor
tance increased. Again in a fow yoara tho
Stovousen moved to Now York, whoro
Mr. Paran Stovena took charge of tho
old Fifth Avonuo Hotel. Horo wlao Mrs.
Stovena attracted attention, and thon
bogan hor inarch into tho territory ot
society, fought evory inch of the way
with a determination that baa mado hor
HEP. HOME IS KRWrORT.
About forty years abo sho was ono of
tho few visitors to Newport who ownod
their own cottagoa, and horo Mrs.
Stevons ontortained on the most lavish
plan. Though society w?a divided as to
what to think regarding hor aocialambl
tion, thcro were many who called upon
hor and accoptod hor Jioepitality, while
thcro woro innny who unmercifully
anubbod hor. Tho inon, as a rule, nd
admired her on addount of hor force,
her brilliancy and hor beautiful ftico and
handsomo flgnro, and her march hocaino
triumphant. Every winter Mm. Stevons
wont to Kurope and thero, too, aho
dominntod all who mot hor. Her en
tertainments woro among tho mo3t gor
geous ovor givon and sho became inti
mately acquainted with many of tho
WALES WAS IIER FRIEND.
In rocout years Mrs. Stovena has
boon acknowledged throughout tho
longth and breadth of tho land oh a
loader of fashionablo lifo in Now York,
llw Sunday ovoning recoptlona had be
come famous, ami hor dinnor parties
woro unsurpassed. Distinguished for
eigners woro entertained by the acoro
in hor old mansion, No. 2-14 Fifth

prince of Wales, whom she ontortalnod
so graciously that his royal highnoss re
turned tho courtosy when Mrs. Stovena
visited London later with hor daughtor,
who wan then juat ontoring aocioty. Tho
princo of \\ alo* afterward stood as god
father to Mrs. Arthur l'agot's daughtor.
It may he well to add that Paran Stov
eus diod in 1872, before Mrs. Slovens at
tainod tho zenllli of her powor. Her
daughter, who was a bridesmaid of
Coiisuolo Yznaga, now tho duchess of
Manchester, was married ill London in
1878. it is sold that the prince of
Wales made tho match. Arthur Paget
