HER SOCIAL AMBITION
TALE OF A WOMAN WHO SUC
CEEDED IN LIFE
Left a Widow She Took Her Children
to Europe and Began a Campaign to
Place Them in High Society—Lesson
Contained in Her Career
A book entitled "The Highroad, "pub
i lished anonymously not long ago, is full
! of a deep insight. into human nature.
; It is the • confession of a ; worldly .wise
| ambitious ' mother who ia -■ determined
| her children 1 shall [be j known 'as/mem
j bers of the best society | and obtain '- a '
j position among the nobility. The wom
i an herself comes of the plainest South
; crn stock and marries a man of equally
j humble birth" in Virginia and has three
j daughters and a son. Her husband is a
merchant in . a small way and his wife
spends all the time she can obtain
away from . her babies 'in reading nov
els of high life in England. ;-;./...
She revels .in the titles, descriptions
of old country . houses . and mentally
makes up her mind that some day she
■will see them.- Her. husband has ac
quired considerable wild „ land arid is
doing a . fairly prosperous business
when he dies suddenly, leaving her
with an income', sufficient for a • quiet
manner of living—. But my,- lady now
has her chance and she makes the most
of it. Her husband's life insurance
amounts to $40,000 and with this and
her income she starts for Europe. She
puts .; the ; children ji in a ; fashionable
school and makes the acquaintance of j
some of. the people of a German town I
who may be useful to her. There is I
j one prominent, man in. the'place who is
famous the world ; over and through
him obtains introductions which serve
her well in the future.: •" : -; V. •"
: To make a; long story short," she cre
ates the impression wherever she goes
that she is a woman .of great wealth
and position^ in her own country and
refers vaguely to her estates at home,
until even her children believe in them.
She buys portraits of a sweet-faced
old couple who are dubbed grandfather
and mother and • she leaves no stone
unturned to accomplish her ends. This
remarkable woman lied - and schemed,
compromised | herself, got ■ nto debt and
lived in a maze .of intrigue - for years
and finally married her three daughters
.well —1- the " world v calls well—and
brought all her plans" to" a successful
issue. She . tells frankly vof . how " she
studied the people j she came in contact
with, how she humored and . catered .to
I titled persons and of how she fortified
| herself in every way against discov
i cry. She does not try to hide the fact
that she was not a "nice" woman, and
once or twice when her own son sneer
ed at» her a cold hand clasped her heart
and she wondered whether it had all
been worth while. .
But on ■ the whole she '- gives . one to ;
understand that she ; thought it had
paid;; '.*- The last chapters of the book
tell of how she conquered New York
society as she done that of Europe
and England and by the same methods.
She throws her son in the company of
a fascinating, unprincipled woman, who
nearly ruins him, and she is = a great
success 'in this : \ country as • she ' has
been in .other places. When we,leave
her the ; wild land has suddenly devel
oped coal*, and she becomes as really,
rich as s*he had led people to believe
she was . before.
'But that woman is not dead yet. For
there is not much doubt that the story
is a true one and that -she really did
all.that she claims. And if she is living
and there is any justice in this .world,
any retribution for evil doing here as
well as hereafter, that mother; 1 who
moved her children as if they were
chessmen" took no . thought of their
souls or their.: minds and /sacrificed
everything, even her own reputation, to
place them in a certain social set,\will
have to suffer for her actions. ; Some of
the New York smart > set whom she re-:
fers to are easily recognizable, and it
is quite evident that the story she tells
is genuine. It is a terrible showing for
a supposedly Christian" woman in this
age, and is evidence of the moral
wreckage, made by an overweening so
cial ambition. . She married one ;of her
'daughters to a title, the others to men
prominent in the social world. They
live the lives of the fast set: to which
they belong." Some day that -; mother
will be made ; to. answer for their souls,
and whatever ■ their': fate, ;by her own
confession - she is directly responsible.
They. were mere puppets in . her \ hands,';
arid, the only thing for which she cared
was their worldly success. -It would
be"well -for all women who are ambi
tious for their children to read this

SEEKS TO END WAR
Peace Congress Resolves as to
Japan and Russia
BOSTON. Mass., Oct. s.—Resolu
tions intended to bring about, if pos
sible, an end to the Russo-Japanese
I war were adopted today at the meet
ing of the International Peace con
gress. By the terms of these resolu
tions the congress will address an ap
peal to the emperors of Russia and
Japan to terminate the struggle, and
each of the powers signatory to The
Hague convention will be formally "re
quested to press upon Russia and
Japan the importance of putting an
end to the present.war.
Delegate William R. Criemer, of Eng
land, characterized the treaty be
tween England and Japan as a blunder
and charged that it doubtless had
much to do in bringing on the Russo-
Japanese war. A leading Hindu, Baba
Bharati, spoke as the representative of
his country. The most intense ap
plause that has been evoked thus far
during the convention greeted the
Hindu, who, dressed in the costume of
his people, delivered a passionate
speech in excellent English, denouncing
the attempt of Christianity to thrust
Christianity upon India as its religion
and the policy of the English people
of India of invading Tibet.

BELIEVES IN IMPROVING
SMALL OPPORTUNITIES
Mrs. Little Gives Advice to the Female
Suffragists of Minnesota
ANOKA, M»nn., Oct. s.—One of the
most appreciative audiences that ever
assembled in ?his city greeted Rev.
Anna Shaw, the national suffrage pres
ident, when she delivered her address
on "The Fate of Republics." Mrs. E. A.
Brown, of Luverne, made a strong
plea for those who were in sympathy
with the suffrage movement to make
it known.
A work conference was conducted by
Dr. Ethel E. Hurd, of Minneapolis, and
among the speakers was Mrs. A. T.
Anderson, of Minneapolis, who advo
cated the engagement of a paid or
ganizer' that clubs might be organized
all over the state. At state conven
tions there would then be instead of
six flubs with a representation of thir
ty, delegations numbering hundreds."
Mrs. E. A. Russell, of Minneapolis,
spoke of the work, and recommended
personal visits instead of letters.
The plan suggested by Mrs. Lora C.
Little, editor of the Liberator, was
adopted. She thought that by scorning
and belittling the opportunities open
to them they closed the doors of op
portunity. It was vastly more import
ant that our schools be the best pos
sible than that our president should
be the best possible. If suffragists
would say less about the powers we
want and make fuller use of those
they have they would get all they want
in a fraction of the time it is going to
take when they scorn the powers they
possess.
Dr. Margaret Koch, of Minneapolis,
reported on credentials and the na
tional president, Rev. Anna Shaw, and
a past president, Mrs. C. F. Lentz,
Duluth, were "made honorary members.
The election of officers resulted:
President, Mrs. Maud Stockwell, Min
neapolis; vice president, Miss Marian
Sloan, Rochester; recording secretary,
Dr. Cora Smith Eaton; corresponding
secretary, Mrs. Olive Clark, Anoka;
treasurer, Dr. Margaret Koch; audi
tors. Mrs. M. J. Kelly, St. Paul, and G.

possible to reach a higher point of

judging from the latest imported mod

see even more elaborately cut and
trimmed evening wraps than ever be
fore. No material, lace or |embroidery,
is too beautiful to be utilized for these
bewitchingly lovely cloaks, which are
destined to appear later on at the opera
and smart balls of the winter, and as
the work must be done by hand the
price of one such wrap mounts up into
the hundreds and is more than many

GOSSIP FROM GOTHAM
To the long list of exponents of the
ridiculous and impossible Matilda Her
ron, of Duluth, has added her name.
She has just returned to her home, and
is impressed with the need of physical
culture among American women. Miss
Matilda spent two days in New York
and six weeks In Vermont and New
Hampshire, where she was brought in
contact with angular specimens of
femininity. Having been a dress re
former for ten years, an advocate of
fencing, running, jumping, hurdling,
bqwling and wrestling, and tired of all
of them, she now l has stiuck what she
believes the "proper caper" fop woman
kind. The swing is the thing, she says.
Through some subtle process of reason
ing, she has discovered swinging is the
really effective method of developing
the bust and clearing the complexion.
A swing, she says, should be in every
household where 'there are young girls,
and she depicts <the charming picture
they make, if the, hosiery is dainty and
they study graceful poses. Matilda's
brief stay in New York may account for
her inconsistency. Fancy a swing in an
ordinary New York flat! A punching
bag for a man is nuisance enough, but
think of a swing, which should describe
part of the arc of a circle ten feet in
diameter to be any sort of swing at all.
All the wedding presents sent to the
daughter of the lord mayor of London
by her .American friends are coming
back next week. The presents from at
least 300 persons distinguished in Eng
lish-society have been returned or will
be within ten days. It is estimated the
aggregate value of these gifts will not
fall far short of $200,000. The alder
men presented a diamond necklace that
cost $20,000. It goes back to the donors.
A close friend of Sir James Ritchie,
who arrived here yesterday, says the
from $5 to $12 per day. The Cut will
be about one-half.
Steel blowers, who formerly made
$300 per month and worked only eight
hours, will now make but $200 per
month and work on a twelve-hour shift.
A heater who only had two furnaces to
watch now has tlyree. One of the heat
ers who said he made $250 under the
old scheme, now says he can only make
$100 a month.

McKinley Memorial Designs
CANTON, Ohio, Oct. 5.—A1l of the
ten designs for the McKinley memorial
are in the hands of the jury, composed
of Walter Cook and Daniel French, of
New York, and R. S. Peabody, of Bos
ton. According to Secretary Hartzell,
a meeting of trustees will probably be
that is more within the means of the
average woman is shown by the illus
tration. It is of champagne colored
chiffon velvet lined throughout with
delicate rose pink liberty satin. It
is made with very full fronts and
back and large full sleeves that start
at the neck and are joined to the back
and fronts by shirrings that form a
square yoke in the manner shown.
The sleeves are gathered below the el
bows and are finished with narrow
pipings of the velvet and chiffon plait
ings. The cloak falls in soft, full folds
and is trimmed around the bottom,
which is cut into deep scallops, and
again higher up by puffings of the vel
vet with wide chiffon plaitings beyond,
and around the neck is a broad flat
collar of heavy point de venise lace.
The gown is of Russian lace of the
same color as the cloak and it is also
lined with pale pink satin veiled with
champagne colored chiffon.
belief is general Jn London that John
A. C. McCalman, who jilted the lord
mayor's daughter on the eve of her
wedding, is on his way to America, if
he is not here already.
There are few American women of
wealth outside of Mrs. Potter Palmer
and Mrs. Tarns, who have deigned to
study the art of housekeeping with
such assiduity as the Duchess Cecile of
Mecklenburg, the betrothed of the
crown prince of Germany, and it is
doubtful if even these excellent Amer
ican housekeepers are as systematic
and thorough as the duchess. Mrs.,
Tarns puts up the most preserves, and
can handle a dustpan and brush skill- |
fully, should such an unusual task be
imposed upon her, but when it comes
down to the general duties of all-round
housekeeping Cecile is far ahead. She
has been reared as all well-born Ger
man girls are, to understand the house-,
hold. She is a capital cook, and as a"
needlewoman there are few in the em
pire who can excel her in speed or in
the quality of her work. She is as
clever in guiding an automobile as she
is driving a horse. In personal appear
ance she differs radically from the ac
cepted German type. Her face is oval
and her waist slender. The marriage
probably will effect a reconciliation
with the house of Hanover. The broth
er of the duchess married the Princess
Alexandra of Cumberland, daughter of
the bitter enemy of the Hohenzollerns.
"Whatever may be said of hunting
after titles and position and all that
sort of thing, there is no family in
America where the bond of affection
between brothers and sisters is strong
er than in the Leiter family. The ill
ness of Lady Curzon will interfere se
riously with the magnificent pageant in
India, when the Prince and Princess of
Wales are to be the guests of the vice
roy, Lord Curzon, and entertained on
a scale of magnificence that will excel
even the hospitalities of the Delhi
durbar. The Leiters are not at all
concerned about that. A dozen durbars
could not compensate them for even as
much as a day's suffering of the be
loved sister and daughter they are
traveling 5,000 miles to see. but if she
recovers and returns to India with her
husband, she will take part in one of
the most sumptuous celebrations of
modern days. A special train has been
built expressly for the Prince and
called in a few days. At this session
the design will undoubtedly be chosen
and the architect employed. The meet
ing will probably take place in New
York.
Senator Hoar Is Buried
CONC<fRD, Mass., Oct. 5. —The last
services over the body of United
States Senator George Frisbie Hoar
were held yesterday in this town, the
place of his birth, and several hundred
of the senator's former townsmen fol
lowed the body to the place of its
burial in Sleepy Hollow cemetery. In

Lost on Lake Huron
CLEVELAND. Ohio, Oct. s.—News
was received here today of the loss on
Lake Huron last night of the steamer
Iron Chief, of the Corrigan, McKlnney
& Co. fleet, of Cleveland. The boat
was loaded with coal, bound from Fair
port to Duluth. A storm raged at the
time and the boat probably was over
whelmed. The dispatch to the firm
stated that the crew of seventeen men,
mostly from Cleveland, were taken off
the Iron Chief by the steamer Carnegie.
The Iron Chief left Cleveland Saturday
night. U. S. Cody was captain of the
vessel.
These Study City Government
EAST ST. LOUIS, 111., Oct. s.—The
Princess of Wales. It consists of eight
saloon carriages and is 600 feet long-.
Its equipment is the most splendid ever
seen on any railway in Europe.
When the winter season gets well
under way there is hope- that the
charming wife of Earl Grey, the new
governor general of Canada, may give
over her determination not to visit the
"states" and will consent to grace some
of the upper ups in New York with her
presence. It goes without saying that
she will adorn any assemblage where
wit and readiness in conversational
duels are the criterion by which en
tries are measured. The countess is of
that type of English women whose
femininity is perfect and whose knowl
edge of affairs is as accurate as any
woman can hope to attain. She is the
third daughter of Robert Stayner Hol
ford, M. P., and all her girlhood has
been passed in a political atmosphere.
There is little in history, where it re
lates to Great Britain, with which she
is not familiar, and it is realized hero
that she would be a new and novel at
tractipn in the set whose principal
forms of diversion run to vegetable
conversaziones and monkey parties.
The countess knows nothing of these
amazing forms of amusement, and if
she is induced to become a guest in
this set it will be solely because she is
willing to be courteous and aid her dis
tinguish^l husband in maintaining the
entente cordiale between this country
and its northern neighbor. The
countess also leads Paris in the fash
ions.
CURRENT VERSE
Ballade of One Virtue and a Thousand
Crimes
I leave—or shall—"a name to othei
times"
(At some slight sacrifice of modesty)
"Link'd with one virtue and a thousand
crimes,"
Like that of Byron's Terror of the Sea.
Yet, buried in abysmal infamy.
By almost every sin poetic stained,
Still may I lift my head—of one fault
free:
Never have I the Sonnet form profaned.
In common with a host of scribbling
mimes,
Poetic 'license" I've spelt "anarchy;"
I've smashed all rules (here goes one!)
forty times.
And have, with pert and flippant parody.
Murdered the classics in a "ghoulish
glee."
Few are the misdemeanors I've disdained.
And yet—this stiffens up my vertebrae—
Never have I the Sonnet form profaned.
That form, which genius heaven-born
sublimes
And less than genius beggars, reverently
I have exempted from my foolish rhymes;
For that at least I may not penance dree.
"Oh, my offense is rank,'' as you'll agree;
Yet grant me this one virtue—l've re
frained
From writing Sonnets. Heaven my wit
ness be,
Never have I the Sonnet form profaned.
Apollo, lord, when In thy chancery
My many crimes are cried, and" I ar
raigned
With other doggerel bards, be this my
plea:
Never have. I the Sonnet form profaned.
—Puck.
Gettln' Washed
At breakfast, when I'm kinder late an'
hurry to my place,
An' wanter eat, some person says, "Oh,
what a dirty face!"
Or, "Leave the table right away, those
hands are a disgrace!"
An' when I come back nice an' clean, my
mother says she- fears
I didn't take a lot of pains to wash be
hin' my ears.
An' lots o' times when I've been out an'
haven't touched a thin'
That could have dirtied me a bit, why
some one's called me in—
An' what they went an' said was dirt
was shadders on my skin.
But s'pose that cedar tree I climbed did
leave some teeny smears,
I don't see how a bit could get 'way up
behin' my ears!
Oh, when I'm big, without a nurse or
grown-up folks that tease,
Some weeks I'll wear my oldest clo'es as
ragged as I pleane,
An' muss my hair an' have big holes in
both my stockin' knees.
Of course I'll wash each mornin' 'cept
when playtime interferes,
But you Just bet 111 let alone that place
behin' my ears!
—Burges Johnson in Harper's Magazine
for October.
The Almoners
There lie three ships upon the bay
That, when night falls upon the sea
In quaint and shadow dimness, wake
The wander-love and joy in me.
There hang three clouds across the sky
That, when the young dawn climbs the
hills.
Flare high, as though the Painter King
His colors on the canvas spills.
We reck not of the flight of years.
We struggle not for gauds or gold.
When all across the sunny world
The mantles of delight unfold.
What care we for the gain or spoil
That the unseeing may desire.
When Life, the Giver, has displayed
Her gifts to fan the vagrant fire?
For the dispensers of her funds
Are many as her ways are v.-ide;
They roam the passes of the hills.
They spin the drift upon the tide.
A little joy, a little love.
For largess take we from their hands—
No meager portion of Life's alms
Is ours who till her boundless lands.
If they but grant us eyes to see.
If they but grant us hearts to thrill.
No gift is wasted, none despised—
Life's almoners have done her will.
And do they go as sun or sea.
What matters it their chosen guise,
If in our hearts they shall infuse
A snatch of song to make us wise?
