THE LITTLE LADY OF PEKIN.
From the Chinamen’s Point of View
His Empress is Perfection.
The Chinese empress does not meet
completely the Anglo-Saxon demand
for female beauty, but then tfhe China
man is not wholly satisfied with our
type, and, on sound democratic prin
ciples, the celestial has some color for
his opinion, seeing he is one of our
four hundred millions, while our ideal
represents but seventy-five millions.
Personally, It is hard for me to appre
ciate beauty In one who Is short and
fat; whose feet are the size of salt
cellars; whose flesh has the modeling
of a bolster; whose eyes are oblique,
and whose natural skin is overlaid
with white and red paste. Yet what
lain pleased to consider my taste is
from the Chinaman’s point of view,
merely outlandirdi prejudice; and on
the standards prevailing in Pekin the
dowager empress is easily one of the
handsomest women, exercising a per
sonal fascination which entitles her
to rank with such heroines as Cathe
rine of Russia or Queen Louise of
Germany. And as to antiquity of ped
igree, the Romanoffs and Hohenzoll
erns are mere upstarts in dynastic
enterprise, compared with the power
In Pekin, which draws its authority
directly from celestial sources in pre
Let us then admit at the outset that
in the matter of birth, beauty and pol
itical power, the dowager empress of
China eclipses not merely anything
of Its kind in Europe, but throws into
the shade anything dreamed of in
this fair country of ours, whose boast
it is that we have set the standard
for ‘sovereign woman.’ The China
man in general is completely convin
ced that in ail that constitutes higher
civilization he is the superior of the
white man. He has invented more
different kinds of mechanical improve
ments than all the rest of the world
put together; his wise men were mas
ters of science when Europe was a
howling wilderness; no other country
has held together so long as this huge
empire, and its subjects not unnatu
rally conclude that such grand results
must have sprung from institutions
whose excellence is unrivalled else
where. Of these institutions the high
est exponent is the dowager empress
and her party.—Poultney Bigelow in
Woman's Home Companion.
Countess von Waldersee, wife of
the German field marshal who is to he
commander-in-chief of the allies in
China, has been frequently spoken of
as having been the morganatic wife of
the late Prince Frederic of Scheleswig-
Uolstein. She was not. Prince Fred
eric fell in love with Miss Mary Lee,
an American, and fouru himself con
fronted with these conditions: If he
retained hfs royal rank he could not
marry- Miss Lee, except morganatl
cally; and morganatic marriage Miss
Lee would not accept. He thereupon
put royalty aside and became Prince
Frederic von Noer; and, as such, he
married Miss Lee with full ceremony.
Prince Frederic von Noer died the
next year . As the widowed Princess
von Noer, the former New York girl
was wooed by the Count von Walder
see in 1874 and is now his wife.—New
While others are thundering anathe
mas against the masculine shirtwaist
Rev. Father Reis thunders against the
open-work female shirtwaist. “The
young ladies of the sodality," he ful
minates. "will have to quit wearlug
those ‘jiggermerig ' waists with the
funny business around the arms and
shoulders.” It is not at all strange
that the announcement follows that the
young ladies of that sodality are up in
arms and threaten to go to some other
church. It is to be hoped that they
will. Come to our church, ladies. We
are not too good to worship in the same
house with a girl because she has a
pretty shirtwaist and chooses to make
It prettier with an artistic combination
with a pretty neck. If a sodality girl
can't wear a jiggermerig shirtwaist,
then what is the use of all this talk
about the Declaration of Independence”
According to some good people the
greatest mistake of creation was the
making of the pretty girl at all. But
these good people would not be satisfied
if every pretty girl were required to'
dress in soldered sheet-iron instead of;
open-work jiggermerigs. and they j
may be left out of all consideration I
It is the nature of pretty girls to jigger- j
merig. and it is the nature of the j
lovers of the beautiful to be jigger- j
meriged. That is the end of It. and all j
the Reverend Reises cannot make it 1
any different. —leouisvllle Courier-
