The Coming Woman
Is not as she is painted by unfriendly
^critics. She is refined, educated, with
(enlarged industrial possibilities
Iwhicli transcends the dreauis of her
inost devoted admirers. Her advance
ment in study of the abstract scien
ces places her cn an equal footing
with her brother in schools and col
leges, and in many of the professions
auiong them medicine and book-keep
ing. The coining woman will be en
enabled to live withou making an un
happy matrimonial alliance for bread
una a home. She will not be the
blooinered purveyor of the slang of
the street, or a renegade from the
duties of family and home, but with
enlarged ideas, and with a full knowl
edge of her attainments and of their
importance, will improve the world
by imparting that knowledge to her
offspring, or to mankind. In business
matters the proportion of thoso who
are successful are as many as of their
brothers in trade. In the fine .arts
and in music they excel. As cashiers
and keepers of trust funds the coming
woman, the new woman, is found to
be reliable and entirely trustworthy.
Who says, endowed with these quali
ties, she is unfit to be entrusted with
the ballot. 8he may drive a horse,
ride a bicycle or wear bloomers, not
for notoriety, but to suit her occupa
tion and convenience with the same
unquestioned right as her brother.
The natural JC ination of man to

How faithfully this represents the

In three days one miner recently
took from a hill near Breckinridge,
Col., forty-five pounds of gold worth
V$n.50 an ounce. He had been pros
pecting but a short time, yet lie was
rewarded by finding metal of the val

Let's see, how does that tally with
th® gold-bug idea that the value of
gold is measured by the cost of the
labor to get it?
an. Philadelphia Alike In
In her article on "The
Four Ituudrcd," iu tlio Cosmopolitan,
Mrs. Burton Harrison tells of an Amer
ican calling upon a lady In London and
finding her seated in a big chair by the
window, engaged in some sort of
needlework. A j'oung man came in
and paid his respects, as it was her day
at home, and then bowed himself out.
Three years later the American was
again in London, and again he called
npon the lady. It was her day at
home, and there she sat in the same
chair by the same window -with the
same needlework, or some very like it,
In her hand, and, more remarkable
still, the same young man called and
made the same remarks he had made
three years before. Mrs. Harrison tells
this anecdote to show how unchanged
,, things nre in England, and how you
are pretty sure to find people just
about as you left them. The illustra
tion Is a good one, but I can mutch it
with abetter one over here.
I I have the pleasure of knowing a
family in Philadelphia, who have lived
in the same house for forty years. As
the children of this family grew up,
1 they developed a musical talent from
four or five generations of men learned
in the law, as well as skilled with the
how. Every Sunday between twelve
end one o'clock, it was the custom of
the father and the sons to play classic
music, the father being first violin, one
son viola, one second violin, the other
violoncello. They played well, and, as
"f I lived nearer Philadelphia in those
days than I do to-day, I often dropped
in at these rehearsals, as tlicy called
them. Five years ago 1 was in Phila
delphia on a Sunday. I had not seen
my old friends in fifteen years, but I
was sure that they were living at the
old place. I walked around the house,
and, as I.mounted the jnarblo Kteps, I
heard sounds of music. Could it be
possible that a "rehearsal" was going
on? Yes, sure enough. There sat the
father, his linir snow white, with his
violin tucked under his chin, and three
"hoys"—fathers themselves—all p!ay
„ing away as they hod been doing since
^they were children. To he sure, they
were married men and did not live at
%om«, but they met every Sunday
jmorning at their father's for the usual
music. I cspeet to run on to Philadel
phia ogaln before long, and, though it
has been at least five j* nrs since I was
at my old friend's house, I expect to
hear the music on Sunday morning, for
I shall time my visit so as to include a
1 Sunday.

Prince dc Joinville tells in his
"Memoirs" a story that is rather hard
on the Americans he found during his
vi: it to this country in war times. "One
of the chief members of society at the
time was the llritisli minister, Mr. Fox,
a diplomatist of the old school. 1 was
told that one day as he was leaning
against a chimney piece in a drawing
-room, whore dancing was going on, in
deep conversation, an American came
and stood just in front of him in a
oilntry duncc. Soon the young man
began to show signs of anxiety his
voioe grew thick, his cheeks swelled al
ternately, and he east anxious glances
at the chimney piece. At last lie could
hold no longer, and with the most ad
mirable precision he shot all the juice
of his quid into the ^replace, just be

Why Four Flayer* Divided the Btikei
Equally Among Themselves.
A straight flush in the great Amer
ican game of draw poker is such a rari
ty that the person holding it is regarded
as one of the most fortunate and blessed
of mortals, says the Summit (N. J.)
llccord. Devotees of that game will
peruse the following story with in
credulity, but its absolute authenticity
can be verified by at least ten thor
oughly reliable witnesses: A party of
four players entered a plaee not a
thousand miles from Summit one night
and prepared to enjoy a few hours of
recreation at their favorite game. An
other gamo in progress at the time was
full, so the four players were obliged
to start at an adjoining table.
The "jaclt pot" came around, each of
the four players filled in and the gamo
proceeded. The cards, regulation pack,
fifty-two cards, were cut by the player
to tlio right of the dealer and dealt out
In the regular m&nncr. The first play
er to the left of the dealer opened the
"jack pot" and each succeeding player
In turn raised. The limit was ton cents
and the players are usually light bet
tors, so that the raising and lively
chipping in before the draw created
considerable surpridb. When the deal
er prepared to serve the cards for the
draw each of the players stood "pat"
and the betting again started.
When each of the players had chipped
in ten dollars it was decided to stop the
betting, as that amount had never be
fore been wagered on a game in the
place and none of the players could af
ford to risk a greater amount. When
the hands were shown some of the
players almost succumbed to heart dis
ease, for there lay four straight flushes,
one of each suit and nil running from
four to eight. The pot was divided and
the cards were carefully put away in a
case to be preserved as a reminder of
the greatest poker hands ever held in
this section and probably in the United

Bicycles and watches are not much
alike, and it is difficult to see how the
sale of one can affect the sale of the
other. It is a fact, nevertheless, that
since the bicycle fever took hold in its
present Intense form the sale of high
grade watches has greatly reduced.
Parents who buy bicycles for their
children do not buy watches unless,
perhaps, they get cheap ones, so the
young ones may know when it is time
to come home to dinner.
"The decrease in the sale of watclics
has been very noticeable," said a Chi
cago jeweler the other duy, "and I
trace it to no other cnuse than the
bicycle. For instance, when a hoy bc
catnc fifteen or sixteen years old in for
mer days it was the custom for his
parents to present him with a watch
generally a costly affair—which usually
lasted him the better part of his life.
Dut it is dilterent now. The boy
clamors for a bicycle, and he generally
gets it, although it does not last as long
and usually costs more than a watch.
This same trait I have noticed in peo
ple of older years. When they get
enough money on hand to buy a watch
the bicycle fever strikes them, and then
they go out and invest in a wheel."

-'Aft' American lady, promenading in
Florence, suddenly missed her purse.
The suspicious movements of a man in
front made her boldly demand the
stolen property, and the man actually
handed over hor purse. Indignant at
such daylight robbery, the
lady stopped
an elegantly dressed man, and, in ex
cited tones, began to pour out her griev
ance. Merely waiting to hear: "That
man stole my purse!" the gallant
Italian rushed after the thief, who
promptly took to his heels. But tlie
thiaf was the more nimble of the two,
aud finally dodged his pursuer. Red
faccd, perspiring and out of breath, the
gentleman turned back to meet the
lady with profound apologies. "Mad
am, I am very sorry. I did my best,
but your purse is gone." "Oh, no," she
replied, sweetly. "I liavo my purse. I
got it back from the man." "Got your
purse back?" he repeated. ."What did
you want, then?" "Waut? Why, I
want justice," said the lady, calmly. It
was too imioli even for proverbial Ital

with vexation, he gasped: "Justicel

Many of Tltom Flrnt Ilegln to Dance While
PlayluK Iu tbe street.
In this age of burlesques and ballet
girls, when farce comedies are plenti
fully supplied with high kickers and
dancers, and when even the chorus girls
arc expected to trip the light fantastic
toe, one often wonders where all the
dancing girls come from. The natural
inference is tliat they secure their first
knowledge of the graceful art in the
dancing schools, after which they are
prepared for the stage by persons who
make a business of that sort of thing.
Hut many a dancing girl will tell you
that her first school was the sidewalk,
and her first inspiration the strains of
a perambulating street piano, presided
over hy an Italian grinder. Indeed, it
is no uncommon sight to see a crowd of
interested spectators gathered about
one of these street musicians, the at
traction being not in the music, hut in
the graceful movements of the little
girls. Some of these children execute
some very pretty steps, and occasion
ally their performances ore as clever as
some seen upon the stage.
