After the Wife or Hie I'l-eslrirut They Are Firtt on t?i Social I.l.t Not Very Cay, lut Very Crncloiu- ISrief Sketch . of ( Their Liven. ICoprritfht, lV3, by Aru-ricau Press Associa tion. The ladies comiosing the circle of the supremo cotirt of the United States, t ing wives of men who havo earned their di ttingnialjMl positions aftr many years of eminent and honorable serv ice, are not supposed to be very young, very g.-iy nor Tf-ry fashionable. Loin;? wcmcii of marked individuality and coming from sections widely ai-art, all se-m to have lully realised in character, raciousnc-.- of winner and kindliness of heart the Bib'u standard of womanhood. MlIS. FIELD. Mia. EKEWEK. The court ladies receive their guests on Monday, and, after tho wife of the pres ident, are first on the social list, wives of senators, cabinet officers and representa tives calling on them firt. Tho wife of tho chief justice is supposed to be enti tled, to somewhat the name dhtinctKn among tbo ladies thai, his position enti tles him to among the judge?, and any innovation or change in established form must receivo tho seal of her approval be fore final adoption. Mrs. Fuller was born at Uurlington, la., and educated in the schools of I7cw York and Massachusetts. Mm. Fuller went to Chicago upon her marriage- and thero resided until called to Washington. As tho wifo of tho chief justice an un usual amount of interest centers in her, and Monda3's bring to her parlors many of tho distinguished citizens and visitors of tho nation's capital. The mother t;f nine children, with the additional -;:r ; of stepchildren, her life has been a bny one. Of tho five daughters in society, she has vatnessed the marriage of four, all of whom savo one are settled in th'ir own homes. Tho tastes and inclination of Mrj. Fuller's daughters have varied so widely that with tho introduction of each entirely different set of young jcople havo frequented her entertainments. Miss Katherino is tho present cmeen of tho household. Mrs. Fuller's character istics are very pronounced, her prefer ences strong, and sho is remarkably free from affectation and pretense. Sho his co fads and tolerates no foolish pursuit of hobbies. A warm admirer of tho Cleveland?, their coming is matter of re joicing in tho Fuller household. Mrs. Field has perhaps wielded as widy an influence over society r.s any ono woman in Washington. A Ktntnekum by birth, a Californian by rearing and education, her spacious and historic homa on Capitol hill has been the scene of wido and much enjoyed hospitality Sho has visited almost every foreign land and been presented at many of tho courts of Europe, that of Napoleon and Queen Vic toria when a very yonng woman. Broad minded and public spirited, -Irs. Field is ono of tho governors of tho Ladies' club and president of tho Washington Btatno association, her object being to present Franco with a statuo worthy of American women and the "Father of His Country." The necesary funds hav ing: been collected, they now lie iu bank awaiting models to choose from. Mrs. Field is ono of tho national vice presi dents of the Society of tho Daughters of tha American .Revolution. For CO years tho homo of cs-Associato Justice Miller was a synonym for hospi tality, and Mrs. Miller did much to es tablish Washington's reputation for ele gant official entertainments. Since his death three years ago she has resided in Colorado Springs with her daughter, Mrs. Touzalin, who. with her son, a law yer in Chicago, are left of the four chil dren who called her mother. Widely traveled, Mrs. Miller's winters in Rome were seasons of special delight,xwhilo England and Scotland were but little less enjoyed. A woman suffragist from child hood, she is eloquent in upholding tho rights of women, believing that amenity to laws and taxation entitle all to rights of citizens in government affairs. Born in Pennsylvania of English parentage, Khe was too frail as a child to lo sent to school. Her health is again delicate, compelling her to lead a quiet life, great ly to the regret of the circle wherein eho is a charming member. off Wo ' & '??!'.??!; w 1 opposed to the 3IKS.

As Caro- and kanaKprlcton she came to Boston when fought fr:ijia end resided there until her mar now fiiy.'re New York city then became her homo. For 11 years they have lived in Washington. A woman of pronounced and decided views, she expresses her con victions with earnestness and as one who thinks and reasons for herself, being lit tle influenced by tho opinions of others. Tho Blatcliford dinners and luncheons aro tni3, and though mainly given to small parties re much enjoyed. One carried son, a lawyer in Nov. York, i Lcr only child.

Blond in ccl oxing, sho is .-lejh r graceful, with an abundance cf light, tluiy hair. Her deep blue eyes have an exjires-ion of pleading confidence i'.-Muin teen in one past early girllwxxl. A womanly woman whom other women love, her nature passes Goethe'3 beautiful limit, for the not only 4iloves God and little children," bnt opens her heart to all who need Lcr affection. Mrs. Brown is from a long lice cf an cestry noted from the foundation of' onr government tor its brave men and beau tiful women. The blood of John Ald-n and Priscilla Mullens courses her vein3. A gracious manner, beautiful face and exquisite form are blended to make a picture of loveliness seldom seen. No clnldren grace her home, so her husband end his friends have been her most con stant associates. This perhaps accounts for the fact that she is interesteel in such matters as men discuss and feels it best to leave all national questions in their hands. She likes political discussions and reads history rather than ficticm. Greatly admired, her ill health, which forbids all social life, is matter of univer sal regret. A good German and French scholar, the pleasures of frequent trips to foreign lands has l-n greatly aug mented by this fact. As Lillie Kennedy, daughter of Rob ert and Charlotte Kennedy, Mrs. Shiras was born and resided in Pittsburg until her husband was elevated to the supremo bench last October. As a child she spent most of her time in a rambling, old fash ioned house surrounded by a majestic oak grove. With dogs and birds for companions, her natural fondness for animals was developed, while flowers and tho study of botany early became subjects of interest. Her sunny rooms at tho Arlington, with flowers on man tel, windows and brackets, speak elo quently of continued caro for her old favorites. Of her two sons, the elder is married and has two children. Mrs. Shiras ha3 a tall, commanding figure and is decidedly a handsome woman. 1TRS. SUTRAS. BROWX. Mrs. Waite, vidow of the late chief justice, was born in Connecticut of French and Huguenot ancestors. Of her five children only two are li' ing, a son and daughter, tho latter at homo with her mother. It was said the jus tico never employed a clerk, bxit with Miss Mary's assistance did all the work incident to tho preparation of his cases. Sho thereby earned tho tillo cf "her fa ther's right hand," which might bo cs tendeel and sho bo called "her mother's heart," for such she seems. Domestic in taste, Mrs. Waito thoroughly enjoyed entertaining tho tlistinguished men her homo was thronged with during her hus band's life. An extensive traveler, she ha3 been abroad a number of limes, whiL all parts of the United States are famiiiar. Fond of making acquaintance, her life ia Washington hns done much to remove the feeling that she is meet ing strangers in extending its limits. Tho recent death of Justice Lamar has revived a number of tho romantic stories which found their way into tht press when ho and Mrs. Holt of Macon mar ried six years ago. ' There i.-; just enough of truth in all to preclude denial of any. One of Mr. Lamar's daughters said to me that tho first and moat beautiful love story sho ever hard was tjld by h( r mother, and her father was the hero. Mrs. Lamar retains much of the beauty for which she was noted when a girl, and there is an air of sincerity anil cor diality of manner when she saj'S "I am glad to meet you" that causes ono to feel as unrestrained as if greeting an old friend rather than a representative of our highest social circle. It is not proba ble that Mrs. Lamar will again make her homo in Washingtem. Sho cares lit tle for gay society, so it is quite likehy 6he will dispose of her pretty home and hereafter reside with Mr?. Virgin, her last remaining child. Tho widow of William Bnrnham Woods is an Ohioan by birth and educa tion, though her father, Willard War ner, and her mother, Eliva Eunice Wil liams, were from Vermont and Massa chusetts respectively. Mrs. Woods re sides with her children, a daughter and her son, a lawyer in Chattanooga. She devotes herself to making their home happy and attractive, censiderable time being given to reading. Having traveled extensively in her own and foreign lands, sho is a cultured and attractive woman, Sho is an Episcopalian in faith, a elaugh ter of tho Revolution by inheritance, though not by affiliation, and a member of a total abstinence society. Her aims in life are exalted, and sho endeavors so to livo that "each day's setting sun sees some kindly action done." Mary Ross Banks. Dentistry and Diplomacy. Wo notice that tho United States lega tion is doing duty as a dentist's office and consul general's court. This no doubt is another good stroke of business vhich kills two birds with cno stone. But what if tho White House were let out ia part to a publican? The Ameri Nia legation is national property and ought not to bo converted into drug :ores or dentists' offices. A sense of tho fitness of things or the dignity of the flag t evidently unknown at the American legation. Siam Free Press. Had Sympathy for the Court. Charles Townes, who was found guilty of grand larceny in the county court at Canadaigua, is a rather original chap. When ho was caHed u? for sentence he made an eloquent plea for mercy and fympathized with the court "for having to sentence an innocent man."
