'IS .NO SUCH PERSON."
THE NEW WOMAN EXISTS ON PAPER ONLY. Mrs. Fuller Come to tlio Roscua of Her Rufferlns; Bex The Newspapers She Bay. Are Drawing a . Flctare. False , HE city of Buffalo, New York, is happy in being the home of many women of general culture and refinement; prom inent among them la Mrs. Bralnerd Fuller, a writer of grace and force and a public speaker of ifli lip particular cnarm. She la a native of MIddletown, . Conn., her parents heing Nor man L. Brainerd and Leora Campbell Bralnerd. Mrs. Fuller was educated at Miss Payne's Young Ladles' Seminary, MIddletown, Conn., and has traveled In Great Britain, Continental Europe, Canada, and to some extent In the United States. Mrs. Fuller read an able paper at the "Woman's Congress" at the Columbian Exposition on "Wo . men as Political Economists." Her Idea of the New Woman published In Womankind will undoubtedly prove of : Interest It is as follows:: V JnRt who tha New Woman of the day Is, upon whose much heralded advent many good and sober-minded people Lave taken fright, remains so far a mystery. Where In real life there ex ists an individual, who acknowledges herself to ha tha orlelnal of the type dubbed the "New Woman," we have not as yet been told. Then, whence comes this strange and sklrtless crea jture continuously held before our star 'tied ?azn. and whose nresence reDre santad in nnwnntad and most unseemly places is, indeed, enough to stampede a nation back into tne customs 01 past civilizations. Were Betsy Wig to drink her tea in modern times, she would Drobably make another keen (lis covery, and exclaim, as she once did, in regard to the existence ,of Mrs. damn's sunnosititlous nattent. Mrs. Harris; "I don't believe there's no slch nprsnn " as this hind of a new Woman : And Betsy would not be so very far from correct. In holdlnz such opinion. That times are changing, and women advancing Into broader fields or ettu cation and usefulness, none In his senses can doubt. It is equally cer MRS. BRAINERD FULLER, tain that the bug-a-boo new woman, we are worrying ourselves about, lest she Imperils the perpetuity of present social order, has scarcely more quali ties to insure her continued existence than a phantom or a poorly executed picture. In fact, she ,1s a sort of com posite, produced by the various impres sions of the peculiarities of living ex tremists, which have been developed by the fear of pessimists, the anxiety of conservatives, the wit of lampooners, and by the caricaturists holding high carnival over all. The real new wo man of America, which the nineteenth century will give to grace the decades of its successors will be one, who, to tho gentle feminine attributes of her colon ial ancestors will ad'd the strength of self-reliance and the force of system atic, intellectual training. Her more liberal education obtained from her col lege curriculum, together with a freer mingling In the affairs ot the world will tend to improve society, rather than to undermine it. Education, a wide experience in life, and an ex tended knowledge of human nature, has never yet retarded the wheels of pro gress, or deracinated society, and there seems to- be no very good reason to be lieve that different results will prevail, bcause women possess these advan tages. As for the "New Woman" bun dling up her recently acquired knowl edge, as she would pack a band box, and flying off with it into an indefinite place, we call "out of her sphere," why she never will, to any alarming extent. Immutable nature has mapped out to woman her sphere. The golden chains ot love and maternal devotion bind her willingly to it. She could not leave it if she would, and she would not If she could. So after the .extravagancies and exaggerations that are now follow ing naturally enough In the wake of the movement which Is advancing woman into a higher position in the social sys tem, shall have settled down, as ex tremes attendant on reforms have done before, the real new woman will ap pear, as true to herself and her voca tions, as any of her predecessos. If the spirit of her times extend her dut ies, in some instances into public life, there she will conduct herself with dig nity and ability. She will preside nt the fireside, a fair and stately figure, none the less loveable because adorned with more ot the graces of Minerva, as well as those of Venus; none the less companionable because of her bet ter understanding of the things that In terest men. TO CABLE THE PACIFIC. Every thine Seems Favorable for the Carrying Out of the Project Probably John W. Mackay will al ways be known as a bonanza miner, and yet to-day he has, nu doubt, a greater fortune in telegraph properties than In anything else. He is certainly the largest individual owner in the world to-day of telegraph lines, and C, R. Hosmer io the man he depends upon to manage them for him. Mr. Hosraer be lieves the time Is near when the English government will combine with her col onies in laying a cable across the Pa cific ocean. The colonies have, already SSJql Mq- y t T HAR OD RHSC HRI granted subsidies or have bound them selves to do so, and tho entrance into power of Lord Salisbury, with his Con servative majority of 150 and odd votes, Is viewed in Canada as propitious for the Pacific cable enterprise. "The Western Union," he went on to say, "started to build years ago toward Alaska with tho Intention of laying a cable across Behring sea and reaching European Siberia. At the same time they were constructing a line in Si beria. This was when it was believed JOHN W. MACKAY the laying of the Atantic cable would not be a success. When the latter proved a success the other was aban doned, and now has practically disap peared, although $6,000,000 or ?7,000, 000 were spent upon it." The Canadian Poet "The Kahn" 13 the signature ap pended by an erratic Canadian Jour nalist to poems and sketches that have given him a wide reputation through out the Dominion. He Is a poet of the people as distinguished from the poets of the magazines, and before taking to Journalism he was for many years en gaged in farming. Many of his verses have the directness and simplicity that characterize the work of Riiey, and at his best "The Khan" writes true poet ry. Like every poet engaged in Jour nalistic work, however, he writes too much, and the badness of his worst productions is something lamentable; but at his best he has a command ot humor, pathos, and homely sentiment that entitles him to the high esteem in which his work Is held by many. Unspoiled By Honors. An American lady traveling in Hol land writes that Melchers, the Detroit artist who won the Paris exposition prize in 18S9 and has since enjoyed ex traordinary vogue on the continent, ia quite unspoiled by the honors heaped upon him. Though he has dined with the German emperor, he still wears a peasant blouse and wooden shoes on the plea that he Is too poor for any thing better. When he went to dine with the wife of the burgomaster of a Holland town he appeared In this cos tume and soaked to the skin by a hard rain. He apologized, not for the clothes, but for the fact that they were wet, and maintained that it was tho only suit he had. His hostess there upon provided him with a dry suit of her husband's.

"Tell me," she faltered, "tell mo, kind sir, if my poor lost boy was good to the last?" A shade flitted across the bronze face of the seaman. "I don't know for sure," he answered as considerately as possible, "but I heard Indirectly of the natives saying they had eaten better." All was still but the sound of weep ing. Detroit Tribune.

The Kalamn, Wash., Bulletin has !or its motto: "Grab All in Sight, and Hustle for Moro." A True Fish Story. The following cllpplrtg from a paper in Canada will readily gain credence: A canoeing party who returned to town last Saturday from a ten days' outing among the back rivers and lakes, with blistered hand and sunburned noses, tell an a-w-f-u-1 fish story. As they wer? quietly paddling down the river cows were noticed standing In the water close In shore. As the canoeist came up to them a queer looking var mint was observed sucking one of the cows. When they had recovered from their astonishment, a gaff-book was slipped in the water and what proved to be a twenty-pound museoilogne was landed. The body of the fish was swelled out to an abnormal size, and upon being opened was found to con tain a four-pound cheese In prime con dition. We give the story just as it was told to us, and as tha members of the party have heretofore borne exenv nlarv characters, we have no reason to doubt the truth ot it. By the killing ot this fish a great mystery has been solved In that section. The creamery closed down a few weeks previous ow ing to scarcity of milk, and the oldest inhabitants were unable to explain why there should be a diminution in the suonly of lacteal fluid. Now the thing is as clear as mud. Nothing In It. What old fogy was it who said, "You mn't make a silk purse out ot a sow's ear?" And the remark passes current for wisdom, even unto this day.

If we should say to a man: "You can't make a solid gold case stem winder watch of a plug of navy to bacco," nobody would think it was wise. People would only say it was a painful effort to be smart. It didn't take much to Impress peoplo In those older days. How tho Colonel Made Room.

' Wild Steer VTaltos lip St. Lonls, A wild steer escaped Its keepers while being unloaded from a steamer at East St. Louis the other day. It swam tho Mississippi to the foot of Choteau street and after plunging about on the levee for a tew moments started on a mad rush south, pursued by a large crowd. At Cushlng and Toledo streets it encountered a gang of workmen wearing red flannel shirts. The shirts attracted the steer and for a few mo ments the air in that vicinity was filled with picks and shovels. The steer finally attacked an electric car and was worsted. A police officer on the car sent three bullets into its head. They wero not fatal, but tw more officers camo up and after an exciting fight the steer succumbed and was carted away.

Again, how many rented places are devoid of trees of all kinds. Has the land-owner ever stopped to consider that a small orchard, a few yard trees around every tenement house will greatly enhance the value, attract and bold a better class of ten ants, make life more enjoyable and that too at practically no cost? We tell you there is a great deal ot selfishness when we look abroad and see how stingy and selfish many are with their tenants, and oftentimes perchance some good farmer rents his farm and moves away and is so selfish as to reserve all. yes, all the fruit produced, denying even this to his tenant. Landowners owe their tenants and the public generally, duty by planting at least a moderate quantity of trees. This is a wise pub lie policy. Ornamental Tree Growing.
