A little St. Paul girl, in conversation
-with a grown-up friend, gave a forcible
illustration last Sunday night of the
fact that the one radical change in nat
ure which this alleged revolutionary age
displays is to be found in children. Said
the young lady, whose dresses reach
just below her knees:' "My mother has
no -ease of politeness whatever in her
treatment of my friends. She frequently
comes into the room where some of
them are. and she tells them to go home
—that I have to practice. It is very
mortifying; and while I was still under
her control she made me suffer a great
deal in this way."
After having placidly intimated that
site is no longer under parental control,
she went on to say: "1 don't think my
mother understands me at all. When
she slaps me 1 have to laugh— it is so
absurd for her to fancy that she can
change my opinions by any such
During the course of conversation
some reference was made to death,
whereupon the young philosopher re
sponded with a jest that brought an ex
pression of mock horror to the face of
her listener. "Oh, you can't make me
afraid of death," she said, replying to
the expression her light remark had
produced; "it is something we all must
come to in the end, so why not laugh at
Her method of managing her lovers is
certainly novel, and may be a welcome
suggestion to older girls burdened with
popularity. "1 haven't any sweetheart
now," she explained; "I never do have
any in the spring or fall— only in the
summer and winter season. You know,
one must have some time to rest. Yes
terday Frank and 1 were counting them
up, and I've bad twenty-five beaux and
been engaged twice. That is more than
May has done, and she is fourteen
two years older than I."
The young lady's ability to express
fine distinctions a litterateur might
envy, Her attention being called to a
woman with a flower-like face, she gave
the opinion, "She is beautiful— no, not
beautiful, but delicately pretty; 1 have
never seen a truly beautiful woman."
The most staggering however, of her
•various qualifications is her power of
perception— her keen insight of one's
character. She sat critically surveying
a woman pessimistically inclined and
without warning remarked, "I don't
think you enjoy life."
"What makes you think that, pray
"1 don't know, but you look as though
nothing interested you, and as if you
find yourself the most tiresome thing of
Does not this clever young analyst
furnish good grounds for* the belief that
one of ihe numerous coming George
Eliots is going to spring from St. Paul?
It is a bit crushing to feminine re
spectability to know that its intact
virtue, instead of filling the souls of lost
women with envy or remorse, moves
them sometimes to pity. At a fashiona
ble dressmaking establishment on St.
Peter street, one day lately, a wealthy
and respectable patron told Madame
plainly that she objected decidedly to
being obliged to wait hi the same room
•with ladies of the demi-monde, and
hinted that she must take her work
elsewhere unless the line of morality
was drawn at such persons by at least
a screen or curtain. A well-known
demi-mondaine chanced to overhear the
conversation, and when Madame went
from it into her presence, she laughed,
and said compassionately: "Poor
thing! the devil himself could not make
her anything but respectable with such
a face/ Her nose alone will take her
clean to heaven."
Who will say this is an unchristian gen
eration? One young woman was heard
to say to another in a car yesterday.
'•Do you know 1 have just been told
down town that Mr. Blank's wile is
dead, Isn't it awful?"
"1 suppose so," came the reply,
-'though for myself 1 can always see
the hand of Providence in the calamity
that makes a handsome man a wid
LOVE IN A COFFIN.
Craves of a Week Prepared for
Love's Young Dream.
It is a wretched cynic who says:
-'Marriage is the winding sheet of love,
and after it most mortals in their hearts
carry a coffin interred." But one can
scarcely be blamed for trying to recall
something cynical at a wedding. It is
the only way he can harden himself
against the liquifying influence of the
truly "impressive ceremony." and, of
all things disgraceful, to be caught
with so much as one tear in the eye, is
a little the worst in .this day of cast
iron, real estate-ridden, unemotional
souls. Here and there still exist per
sons — commonly antiquated
enough to have the courage to give ex
pression to their feelings. Even the
woman who cries on general princi
ples at all weddings is once in awhile
revived, and she appeared last week at
the Tow -ie- Walsh wedding. . Directly
she entered the church— the first sniff
of the atmosphere she breathed brought
the "water to her e'en," and she wept
to the last note of the retiring march
without interruption, even when she
was threatened with dislocation of the
neck in her pathetic; effort to see just
how the bride's dress was made.
A prettier bride the sun never shone
on than Miss Mary E. Towle, who last
Wednesday morning, at St. Mary's
church, was married to Richard J.
Walsh, of Chicago. The floral decora
tions of the church were in perfect taste.
and the music was such as only the
combined talent of the Misses Shawe,
Prof. McLaughlin and Mr. von Get-in
can produce. Prof. M. L. McLaughlin
presided at the organ, and to the joyous
strains of the wedding march from
"Lohengrin ' the bridal party entered
the church. The ushers, Messrs. E .J.
Darrogh. F. Beaupie, Quintan, and F.
"McVay, of Chicago, led the way; fol
lowing came Mrs. Towle. accompanied
by her soiul'the bridesmaids. Misses
Annie Kelly arid Mary McYay. of Chi
cago; the maid of honor, Miss Nome
Towle, and the bride leaning on the
arm of her father. At the chancel rail
the bride was met by the groom, at-
tended by his best man, Mr, Evans, of
Chicago. Rev Father Caiilert, assisted
by Rev. .1. Conry, celebrated nuptial
high mass, during which a trio was
sune by the Misses Shawe and Mr. Mc-
Laughlin, and Brago's "Angel Sere
nade," by Miss Alice Shawe, with vio-
lin obligato by Mr. von Get-in'
The bride wore a gown of cream faille
and was enveloped in a cloak of tulle.
She carried a pearl bound prayer book
and wore diamond ornaments. The
maid of honor. Miss Nonie Towle. was
attired in white surah, a short tulle
•veil, necklace aud earring of pearls, and
she carried a boquet of bridal roses.
The bridesmaids, Misses Kelly and Me-
Vay. were dressed in white dotted net
nde over white silk. They wore hefld
dres^es of pink rosebuds and maiden
hair ferns, and carried bouquets of La
France roses. Mrs. Towle. mother of
the bride, wore a trained costume of
black satin trimmed with jet. a black
lace bonnet and diamond ornaments.
The bridal party retired from the
church to the music of -Mendelssohn's
"Weddinc March. " and in company
with a number of friends and relatives,
repaired to the home of the bride's
parents on East Tenth street, where
breakfast was served. Numerous hand
some presents were received by the
bride, notably a set of diamonds, which
was the gift of the groom. Mr. and
Mrs. Walsh left iv the afternoon for an
extended tour in the East. On their re
turn they will reside in Chicago at 51

hearsal of the season at Nathan Ford's

tertainment herself, singing never in
better voice than she did on this occa-
sion. Owing to the indisposition of Miss
Long, the "Ave Maria" she was to have
sung was rendered by Miss Van Gelder.
