GIRL GOOD LAWYER
PRETTY YOUNCRRENCH WOMAN
WINS IMPORTANT CA8E.
Mile. Mlropolsky Is Only 21 Years Old
Believes In Marriage, But
Doesn't Want It to Inter
fere with Career.
Pnrls. Tho youngest woman lawyer
in tho world has just been dofondlng a
woman accused of trying to kill her
solf and her baby by inhaling tho
fumes of a charcoal etovo. Mllo.
Holene Mlropolsky Is only 21 and was
sworn In as a lawyer before the court
of appeals In this city last October.
Her appearance as counsel for tho do
fonso in a criminal trial attracted a
largo number of old lawyers to tho
courtroom, though tho caso Itself wjjs
nothing out of tho ordinary. Her
client had been abandoned by the fa
ther of her child; finding herself on
tho vcrgo of starvation sho had tried
to ond her miseries. The baby had
died, but she had been saved.
"Portia come to life!" cried an old
Jurist as ho watched tho beautiful girl
and listened to tho eloquence of her
soft volco pleading for mercy for the
unfortunate sister on whpm inexorable
Justice had Jald her heavy hand. And
so moving was her plea that the Jury
acquitted her client.
Mile. Mlropolsky was born in PariB
of parents who were Poles by birth.
Both father and mother are doctors of
medicine, so It Is only fair to say that
somo of the young woman's talent is
inherited. Sho has nothing about her
that suggests tho "new woman."
Handsome, graceful, elegant In cos
tume, she looks like a young woman
of tho fashionable world until she
dons her gown and cap; then Indeed
sho seemB what the old lawyer called
her "Portia como to life."
Before sho was 17 sho had taken
her degree of B. A., and it should be
observed that tho French require
ments for a dagreo are anything but
easy to fulfill.
Mllo. MIropolsky's portraits do riot
do her Justice, for they cannot repro
duce tho air of intelligence that beams
in every feature nor tho changing ex
pression, tho keen sparkle of the oye,
tho jet black hair, the white teeth or
tho charm of manner which aro hers.
Mile. Mlropolsky desires especially
to,practlco In divorce cases and on be
half of children. With rogard to dl
vorco, she expresses Ideas which In
como countries would bo considered
audacious. Sho would Ilka to seo dl
vorco mado easier; that Is, sho advo
cates dissolving a union on. tho ex
press deslro of both parties. This re
form sho suggests as t being really in
tho Interests of morality. Such a con
dition of affaire, sho remarks, virtual
ly exists nowadays, for If tho parties
really wish to be separated they ar
range a comedy In which thoro are,
necessarily, low and vulgar Incidents.
In divorce cases sh hopes that it may
bo her lot to plead nearly always for
tho wlfo, for, sho says, It is tho woman
who suffers most frequently In these
Mile. Mlropolsky thinks that every
posslblo career should bo opened to
woman, and sho finds that tho chief
objection of men is due to fear of in
creased competition and not really to
any of tho reasons commonly and
hypocritically put forward. Sho would
like to see women enter the church as
a profession, for that is a sphere in
which their qualities would, she be
lieves, be especially serviceable.
In politics, Mllo. Mlropolsky consid
ers she has not yot read and seen
euougtt to bo able to decide between
the various parties In the republic.
On tho question of marriage she has
supremo contempt for what are called
marriages of reason, the "reason" geiv
orally being mcjney. Sho recognises
that marriage Is the truo function of
woman, and if sho wero to meet a man
for whom she bad real affection she
would think hersolf happy to marry;
but on no other consideration save
that of love. In any caso, she would
hope to continue her career In the le
She is an opponent of capital pun
ishment She regards criminals some
what in the light of diseased persons.
In any caso, she says, where our own
motives are often so obscure and our
Judgment bo fallible, we have no right
to take the life of a human being.
Mile. Mlropolsky speaks Englli
very well, with a precise but pleasant
Intonation, and she also speaks and
reads German. She has traveled much
la Europe and she la a sklllod musi
;lan. And all this at tho age ? 211
The troubles we make light of are
(aerally other people's trouble.

I the young woman, "but there's no way

exaggerated sense of duty."
"Don't you suppose that I'd rather

claimed tho young man. "So don't

"Nothing of tho sort!" said the
young man. "I don't see what on
earth ails you! Don't I act glad
enough to come?"
"Edgar," said the young woman
"that Isn't the point 1 What I'm try

I man, sternly. "And I hadn't promised
