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

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

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

can't make such an article of such ma
terial. You don't want to try. It would
ha too exDensive. He might aB well
have said: "You can't r tke a black
beaver overcoat of a p:c:e of white
satin." 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.
"Do you think," asked tho colonel, as

"That Is satisfactory," interrupted
the colonel, still eyeing his weapon. "I

would be more room. Good morning."

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.
