£N FEMININE FIELDS.
H# Attention Which Ellen Terry At tracts When Shopplnß. New York, Nov. 19. —She was a pretty girl and she outshone everybody else at an afternoon tea. It was an introductory tea, and the oompany was large and a trifle mis cellaneous. The pretty girl was not being introduced, but people’s eyes followed her to the uneasiness of the bud who was. The bud had been brought up in Europe and had just come home to bloom. The pretty girl had a rare neo-Greek face •with decorative handstand skin like snow. She was a slender little thing, with eyes of a clear dark brown, soft and rather shy. Her hair was a decided red and slightly curly. She wore it brushed back from a low broad forehead and twisted into a Greek knot at the back of her bead. She had the figure of a Diana, and she was so simply unconscious of her gown that her attitude was a triumph in its way. The gown itself was another triumph. It was a soft white cloth affair, flowing in long lines and fitting as gowns never lit except when they are draped by an artist and worn by an artist too. There were pearls em broidered on the bodice, and the girdle was strung with pearls. Everybody looked at her, and she accept ed the notice she attracted quietly, not abashed and not very much surprised. The pretty girl was at the tea on her reg ular business, and as her next friend re vealed the secret to me I may as well pass it along. She was a girl without a dressmaker’s bill, who, on the contrary , was paid by an enterprising firm of modistes for wearing her very effective gowns. “Marie’s mother was a society woman when she had money,” so the story ran, “and Marie had society connections of some extent and value. She could get invitations easier than she could bread and butter, and so she is proceeding to get her bread and butter through her invitations. She wears the prettiest things there are going and she makes an income that isn’t a bad one out of the commissions she receives for the custom ers she sends to swell modistes who fit her out. She isn’t obtrusive about it, you know, and the most of them look up the people who make her the best dressed wom an they meet without so much as guessing that it means dollars and cents to her. “She would be quiet about it anyway, for Marie is as nice a girl as there is; but she has to be cautious about keeping the adver tising in the background for business rea sons, for it would cut her out of some nice houses if people knew what she was doing. “marie is clever and she has made the success of two or three combinatious this fall.” Marie, it must be acknowledged, is an in genious boons-., and she boats the tailors’ models out of sight. ELLEN TERRY HAS A KNACK of making friends off the stage as well as on it, and not long since she made one at least who will not forget her. Her carriage was standing in front of a New York florist’s and a little knot of peo ple had gathered to see her leave the store and cross the pavement before driving off. Presently Miss Terry was in the doorway, a bunch of filming chrysanthemums in her hand. The shoppers and young men about town stood their ground for an instant to take in the effect of the fluffy light hair, the big gray eyes and the trim figure in a dark tailor gown. Then they fell back hastily, half ashamed of their curiosity, for people pay more than an average degree of def erence to the charming English actress on the street. The movement was so sudden that the tiniest of jjirl peddlers, a little creature not over sor b years old, with a handful of bright-colored whips, was thrown down. She had been standing just on the curb, and but for the quick movement of a rather dudish young man —of the Bob Hilliard rather than tne Berry Wall type, however —who split a very neat glove in the lunge he make to pick her up, would have rolled under the heels of Miss Terry's spirited team. The child gave one gulp, half of fright and half of surprise, and then looked round for the bunch of whips, imperturbably com posed once*more, as the manner of the gamin is. Miss Terry dropped change enough to have bought up the whole stock into the little but dirty hand, and then held out her own with a quick movement of cordiality to the dudish young man, leaving her chrysanthemums in his. She did not say a word and she was gone in an instant, for Miss Terry hates crowds; but her glauce was expressive enough to stand for a volume and the young man pulled off the torn glove —it was the one she had touched —and stowe lit away in a pocketbook, handling it very respectfully as a treasured memento, staring after the carriage like one in dream. He looked down at the flowers, she had ieft him, almost incredulously, passed his hand over them and then across his forehead to assure himself he was not living in fairy land, and added some good-sized silver bits, by way of getting down to an everyday basis again, to the bonanza with which the little peddler was making off. Ellen Terry had reduced a slave to bond age, and, as for the lookers on, they liked the voting man better than they usually like dudes. THE NUMBER IS WELL nigh legion, in a big eity like New York, of women and girls whose daily tasks keep them from home after dark, and who make their way through the streets alone with perfect impunity. The belated traveler meets them, singly and in groups, at the bridge and ferries at all hours from early dark till long past midnight, and, if he is out so late himself toward morning. Some of them—not v > y many—set type in news paper offices, and a good many in telegraph offices, though they are supposed not to, and there is a respectable minority in a freat variety of trades and occupations. ut the vast body of them aro clerks ami cashiers in the big stores, whose labors dur ing the busy season keep them away from home late at night. Even in s-tores where there is an "early closing” rule, the purchasers are not got rid of till ti o'clock w hen there is still the work of clearing up the day’s debris to be done, and there is no pretense of closing early on Saturday even ings or during the holidays. Midnight very frequently overtakes the toiler at the coun ter with her tasks unfinished, and there are occasions when nearly the whole night must lie spent in preparation for some especial coup of trade. The woman doctor is out at all hours, of course, and I have mot a medical student of barely twenty trudging along at 2 o’clock in the morning, while the falling rain almost blinded her, her hand on the shoulder of a ragged lad of 10, who was conducting her to a sick bed in the east side tenement region. It is a good deal to the credit of the me tropolis that, as a rule, these gii-ls are near ly as safe from rudeness as in the daylight. They are modest and unobtrusive in appear ance. they mind their own business and have ways to make the would-be masher mind his. From night toilers of the other sox—men and boys who are out o’ nights on errands of necessity—they have little to fear. The workingman or boy may be rude when he is drunk, and sometimes when he is not, but ho is seldom persistent and not often intentionally troublesome. THIS GROWING FREQUENCY of night employment for women means a tremendous change in the once accepted no tions and opinions of mankind. The Judge who declares from the bench that a woman has no business to be abroad after dark is yet heard from once in a while, but the anachronism always calls forth a burst of righteous indignation. I was talking with a night-worker masculine the other day about this very topic. He said that he had often lost his horse car and bail to wait a hali hour for another in the wee small hours, because of his reluctance to let a fol low-worker feminine grope alone for her car in the muddy streets. liespite this experi ence, which is enough to make any but the most sweet-tempered man conservative, he spoke most enthusiaetioolly of tho effects likely to be produced upon women, especial ly young women, by self-supporting hab its, and said he looked to see them gain in worth and dignity and practical knowledge by contact with practical necessities. The working girl will never be wholly practical, however, so long as she permits a man to lose his own car while finding hers unless she has reason to suspect that the service is a pleasure to him. The more nearly even the terms upon which women and men conduct their daily business the better it is for the business wom an probably. Gertrude Garrison, of the American Press Association, and Mrs. Eliza Archard Conner, who was one of the pioneers among women journalists, and who is widely know as a correspondent, have been the feminine Damon and Pythias of New York. They roomed together in a cosy little flat and worked together for years. Last spring Mrs. Conner thought she was retiring from regular newspaper work. She bought a farm in Ohio and spent the summer on it, but drifted back, as everybody does, to New York this fall. She expects to take the lec ture field for a time, at least. Henry George’s wife is almost unknown In New York, but his daughters’ faces are becoming familiar. They are pretty girls, who are enthusiasts in their father’s behalf, and who will probably make themselves felt one day in the organization of working women. John Swinton’s wife is recognized where ever she goes almost as quickly as the Ameri can Victor Hugo himself. Wherever one sees the striking figure in black broadcloth suit, white lawn tie and inevitable skull cap, the devoted woman who has stood by him, unflinching and with unfalt ering faith, year after year, is sure to be not far from his side, brave, patient, proud and hopeful still. Mrs. U. S. Grant will probably make something of a figure m society this winter. She will not entertain on any large scale, that being not her taste, nor in accord with her widowhood; but she will see more peo Ele than she has done in the past and her ouse will become something of a rendez vous. E. P. H. HIS MEMORY’S QUEER FREAK. How MaJ. Hartley, of Paterson, Lost and Regained It. From the New York 'World. Maj. John E. Hartley, whose law office is at No. 146 Broadway, in this city, lives in Paterson and is Judge Advocate General on the staff of Gen. Steele, of the First Brig ade N. G. N. J. He has just recovered from a long sickness resulting from an acci dent in the discharge of his dutv at the Sea Girt encampment last August, which de throned his reason and brought him as near death’s door as few men come who live to tell of it. There is only one other case on record like his, and his recovery is regarded as so remarkable that a careful account is being prepared for a medical work. A reporter found Maj. Hartley at his pleasant residence last night and was told his story. “It is a simple tale,” said the Major, smil ing, and then he leaned back in an easy chair and began. “The Adjutant and aids were forming the brigade for dress parade on the night after we arrived in camp, Sunday, Aug. 21. when Gen. Steele rode out upon the field. I fol lowed him In the centre of the parade ground the gun squad had taken position preparatory to firing sunset gun. Gen. Steele saw* this, and dePTred me to go over to the Lieutenant and tell him to move his men to one side of the field. I put spurs to my horse, which was a strange animal hired at a Hoboken stable, and was soon by the side of the Lieutenant. I gave the order, and in an instant the gun was turned about. The quick motion startled my horse, who began to run away. He plunged forward so quickly that I was thrown on his neck, and could not get back into the saddle. “The horse made for the stables, not far off. and quick as a flash I remembered that the lintel was very low and that if I re mained where I was I should bo badly hurt. I at once let myself down by the animal’s side and then virtually threw myself to the ground. A crowd of officers rushed to me and picked me up, but I did not think I was hurt. They carried me to my tent, but I was not injured apparently, f attended to my duties without any difficulty during the week. Friday night the Governor’s bail was held. I attended it, and after being in troduced to two la ies and presenting them to Gov. Green as well, was excused and re turned to my tent. There I was joined by Capt. Boltwood, one of Gen. Steele’s aids. He noticed something strange in in v actions. Capt. Thorpe, of Paterson, came to the tent and sat outside in view of the opening for awhile. Finally he burst out with: ‘What is the matter with you? Are you sick?’ I then shook hands with him arid said a few words. I had previously paid no attention to him. He told me all this afterward. I do not remember it. “When camp broke up I went to Ocean Grove, where my wife was staying. We spent a week there and it was found that mv memory was gone. My wife would spend the afternoon with me, and at supper I would ask her where she had been all the afternoon. ‘With you, of course, ’ she would reply: but I had no remembrance of it. After stopping a short time with my broth er in New York I returned to Paterson. On September 7, I left home for my business in New York. I remember saying to my wife that if I did not feel better before many hours than I did then I would come home early. I remember nothing after this for weeks. “I went to the office, lam told, stagger ing as I walked along the street in N w York like a drunken man. Col. Hamilton, of Hackensack, and Maj, Ruynon offered to assist me when I got off the ferry boat, but I told them somewhat shrplv that I wrs quite able to walk to my offl without any man’s help. When I walked into the office Dr. Carr, of New York, a brother-in-law of Gen. Steele, was there transacting some business. Mai. Ruynon had followed into the office, thinking I might need assistance. I had scarcely taken off my coat w hen Dr. Carr exclaimed to Maj. Ruynon: ‘Why, that man is crazy.’ They got a carriage and took me to the house of my sister. Mrs. Alice A. Burdick, a doctor living in West Forty fifth street. There I stayed for weeks, my life despaired of and my reason gone. “So far as I now know I was unconsrious for most of the time, for I cannot remem ber anything about it. Dr. W. B. King, tbe electrician, of Fifty-third street; Dr. Wil liam G. Hartley, of No. 349 West Twentv fourth street, and my brother and Prof. O’Connor, of the New York Homeopathic College, attended me. They found that a clot of blood had formed on the part of the brain controlling the memory. Softening of the brain would soon tie the result, they said: and if 1 lived, which was improbable, l would be a hopeless lu atic. From Aug. 21 to Sept. 7, when I lost my memory com pletely, I was in the condition of a m-m whose bra'n was softening, I suppose. For three weeks my pulse was in the forties, and there was no hope of life. I am told that I seemed to recognize my wife, and asked for relations who had been in California for years, and for my child, who died a year ago. At the end of this period I began to gain, but my memory suddenly returned about Oct. 1. The clot of blood had been absorbed, and the pressure on the brain was removed. "The return of my memory was like a sudden great light bursting upon me. It seeme l as if a very bright reflector turned the sun’s rays into my face. Everything and everybody seemed bright. That is the only way I can describe it. I had a terrible pain in my head. Every night was like a year. I had about twenty pillows and tried to put my head in a position in which I could sleep, but without success. I finally became afraid to go to bed. I would lie Blinking of business and other matters, but would get everything mixed up. My body was like a piece of wood. If I moved an inch in bed the clothes which I ceased to touch would be jast as cold as a bed is when one first gets in. About the middle of Octo ber I returned to Paterson with my physi cians amt stayed ar home until ten days ago. when I began going to New York, but I can’t do anything yet. “I did not strike my head in falling. The THE MORNING NEWS: MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1887. officers wear chapeaus, very stiff in front and behind. An examination of my chapeau shows that the back is broken, and the blow that made the break probably caused the rupture of the art ry. I never had a headache in inv life, but I am told that after my fall from the horse I said to some of the officers that my head hurt me Of that I know nothing, however. I feel now as I ahvay did, with one exception. I cannot go up stairs easily. Unless 1 am very careful I am seized with dizziness. When my memory returned I saw every thing double. The pupil of one eye had been greatly enlarged. I was given glasses, and the difficulty is almost removed. The physicians will give no medicine for my eyes. ” Maj. Hartley was asked if his memory failed before the night of the Governor’s ball. “Yes, I think it did to some extent,” he said. “It rained Monday night and the camp was nearly deluged, but my remem brance of it is indistinct or I have none at all. “Avery peculiar thing about the case.” the Major continued, “is that my taste for tobacco is gone. I was an inveterate smoker and chewer. As soon as reason re turned I cal lei for a cigar and smoked it, but from that time to this I have not had the slightest desire for the weed. Occasion ally' my hand goes mechanically 'nto my pocket, and when I find nothing there Ire member what I am searching for.” Maj. Hartley is about 50 years old and is a rnan of education and refinement. The whole city rejoices in his recovery. THE DOG WAS A WOLF. An Unfortunate Rustler Left With 17 Big Hungry “Bar” on His Hands. Fred H. Curruth in Chicago Tribune. “That's a peculiar-looking dog of yours,” one of us suggested to a Wyoming settler near whose house we camped one night. “Y-e-s, 'tis some peculiar,” he replied. “Fact is, gen’l’men, that dog's a wolf.” “Why don’t you kill it and get the bounty?” “’Shi I’m onto this bounty all right! Haiu’t beard any talk ’bout the bounty be in’ repealed by the next Legislature, I reckon?” “No.” “Glad o’ that; I don’t want to get stuck again. I got two more wolves out ’n barn, an’ I’m coin’ to raisin’ ’em. I ’low in a year or so to nave a pretty rspectable flock to turn in to the Territorial Treasurer.” “It ought to pay.” “ ’Twill if I don’t get stuck like 1 did in Northern Wisconsin once.” “How was that?” “B ar—started a b’ar farm. The State was payin’ £lO apiece for b’ar scalps an' mighty tickled to get ’em at that. I got n pair of black b’ar an’ took good care of ’em, an’ in a few years I had a lively herd of seventeen as perty b’ar as you ever seen. ’Lowed to kill ’bout ten of ’em in the spring an - send the scalps to the State Treasurer, tellin’ him how I went out into the woods an’ fit ’em with an ax an’ got most chawed up, but itdidn’. work—l got floored.” “How did it happen?” “Legislature went an' repealed the law, an’ there I was, left with seventeen big hungry b’ar on my hands, an’ the bottom gone out o’ the b'ar more’n a mile straight down! Seventeen b'ar, an’ b'ar a drug in the market! Back yard so full of chained up b’ar that you couldn’t walk, an’ the price o’ b ar goin’ down so you could hear it hum! It made me sick! I drove my whole hock down ten miles, where Abe Dunn lived —wh; was in the Legislature an’ voted agin b'ar —an’ left oui nnr his hog-pen, an’ then I pulled up an’ came out here to raise wolves.” Ix a recent week 80,000 bushels u. , xxseed were shipped from.
