She is ons of tlio bost-drosso women in the world in an imperial soi of way , and with a daring use of cole 1 doubt if tliero is a private jewel collce tion to equal hers. She wears mot .stones at n time than is usual with pei plo who haven't so many nnd who I'M in North American latitudes. No moro business woman exists. Sli inherited cattle , married mines , and no a widow , has gone into about cvoi money making enterprise in which Chil the most progressive of the southern n publics , has engaged. She Is the higcc real estate owner in Santiago and Vn unraiso. She has furnished tlio capiti for manufacturing enterprises. She hi started art potteries.

Philadelphia News : The most sou ias after person in this city this week will ar- Mrs. urovor Cleveland. There would arho no swerving of any line from under iiy portrait If it hung across the stn or There would bo no "offensive partis nt. ship" displayed to her by anyone of : id. party. Her wholesome , sound and.6 id.do ccro disposition , her acute intulliger aa her charming face , added to her posit as the president's wife , mnkd her a per * sonngo whom orcryona can admire. Not since Dolly Madison charmed people ple by her cute ways has there boon rt ' 'Lady of the Whlto House , " who has so generally boon popular as Mrs. Cleveland - land is. There have been others who have shown more interest in politics , tliero httvo been others who have played moro of a "stago quocn" character , but hers is the most American personality that has appeared before the public in the same position. She deserves all the admiration she has received , for she lias been uniformly courteous , agreeable and attractive to all classes without distinction. Mr. Clove- hind will be welcome this week in this most republican of American cities on account of his olllcc ; but Mrs. Cleveland will bo welcome for her own sake , for tmc is a typical American girl of the best kind. Itolva TiockwouoVM Candidate. Bclva Lock wood , tlio late presidential candidate of the woman suffrage party , was up to the whlto house the other day. Uclva is what you would c ll a line look ing woman , nnd , it is said , makes n great deal of money out of her law practice here. When asked whether situ would run against Cleveland again , she replied with n laugh : "To quote several illus trious examples , 'I am out of polities' just now. The woman suffrage party will bo m tlio field , however , you can depend noon that , for wo will never glvo up tlio light until tlio victory Is won. Now I think that wo ought to nominate the most popular woman in the country In 18S3 for president. I have been looking over the list of candidates , and I have come to the conclusion that Mrs. Cleve land is that woman. Nominate Mrs. Cleveland for president and we will sweet ) tlio country. She is my candidate , unii I shall not run against'her for thu nomination. " A Female Rani l < < < nato Agent. Chicago Herald : There is a very clover real estate agent in tills eity.

To find a good tenant for ti handsome homo all furislfed is n diflicult ami dclicnto duty. The ma/e / agent in his office is little fitted to pnr- form it satisfactorily. Tlio lady real cy- tate agent does her business in the par lors of her patronslinds ; , from the gossiu among the fashionable ladies of her ac quaintance the plans ot pretty 'nearly nil the desirable people in town.and not only picks up business' dm ing this bou doir gossip , but often actually closes it , Mrs. Cases idea is not only a novel one but looks sensible and practicable Women really runt the homos , cspeciallj the furnished homos. The very best per son to solicit the business ought to be f woman with a fashionable acquaintance and the very bfist place the parlors of the dames who will preside ever the home when it is accepted. At any rato. the lady real estate agent i.s : i success , as bit n success almost as the lady insuranct agent , and the latter is the best knowi : woman underwriter in the country.

A QUAINT AND ABLE PREACHER. Xlto Mfb and Labors of Ror. Georjjo I'lckerlngt n Noted Giant of tlio tinrly Dnys of Method- Ism. At the Inst session of the quarterly con" fercnco of the First Methodist church the name of the church was changed to that of Pickering Memorial church. A general inquiry has been made by the friends of the church as to the reason for the change. Uov. George Pickering was ono of the early and most noted Mctoodist preach ers among those giants of the early days of Methodism , llo was born in Alary- land in 1709 , converted at eighteen years of age in St. Gnorgo's church hi Phila delphia , commenced preaching inuudi- atoly , but joined tlio conference one year later , and continued his work for fifty- seven years , preaching until a few weeks before his death. From 1700 until 1&10. the time of his death , a period of fifty years , his \york was principally ttono in Now Kngland. Ho was ono of the load ers of the church , nnd fully identified with all the interests cf thu church , both temporal and spiritual. For sixteen years ho was presiding older , for nmo years a missionary and much of the time ever a n district including all of Rhode Island , Massachusetts , New Hampshire and Ver mont , except the district west of the mountains. It was immense work to travel in thosu days ever such a stnitch of country , four times annually , witli no better means of transportation than pri vate conveyance. Those long journeys wcro made in the early days on horse back , fording rivers often swollen by freshets , climbing mountain passes in mid-winter and fruquontly sleep ing alonei in ' .ho dense forests. The log cabin was then ' the _ homo of man.v settlers and religious 'services wore hold in those , and often in pleasant weather under the spreading trees. Hut the work was undertaken cheerfully and pros' edited enthusiastically. U ho mem had a message for their fellow men , ami it must be * carried to them at all hazards. The compensation of a preacher was sc small that it socms almost ridiculous in this day of largo salaties. Mr. Pickering's way of giving the amount of his sabiry wns characteristic anil shows the .sacrifice submitted to in their calling. Ho sale ! their salaries "wore1 $01 per annum , il you could gut it , " : vs this small nninunl was often only partly paid. Mr. Pickering - ing in his lifty years of service after liii marriage , was absent from home n prosecuting his lifo work t least forty years. He only gave ton years of half a century te his family and his own rest and enjoy munt of the family circle. Ho was one of the few men who have etoclined the office of bishop , none other , wo believe except Wilbur Fisk , the founder and firs president \Vesloyan university at Mid dlotown , Connecticut , As a preacher ho Was perhaps bes known , though ho spoke on all subject ! and was ono of the most active in al educational matters , often raising largi sums of mone\yfor those days , to build u ] the struggling'institutions of mcthodism Wherever ho preacheduntil his work wa dono.largo crowds followed him , and tin simple announcement of his narao woulel crowd any house of worship. His intensi earnestness and gentlemanly buarinj won alj hearts , not only those of his owi denomination , but his popularity extended tended to all Christians of all denomina tions. His style was quaint and j "sanctified humor" awakened at onci the attention of his anilionco , and hi brevity insured the close-st interest to tin end of his discourse. His fortune ) lof him by his father consisted prlncipall ; of slaves , but ho rcnised to receive then or any profit from tholr sale or labor and they we're freed. This was long be fore iho anti-slavery excitement , but h learned for himself that man had in proprietary rights in his fcllowman. Dr. Abel Slovens , the historian of th church , says of him : "George Pickorinj was a rare man in all respects. Any jus delincutiovof him must comprehend th whole man , for it was not his elistinctio : to bo marked by u few oxtraordinar ; traits , but by general excellence. " H says again : "His character was full o energy novcr wavering , never imptils ivo. As a btatcsmnn ho would have ) boo secure if not successful ; as a railitar commander , his whole character woul have guaranteed that confidence , energi discipline and sagacity which win \ictor more effectually than hosts. Had h lived in the davs of the Uoiniin commor wealth , ho might have competed wit Cttto for the censorship ; not so mitcl however , from his rigorous constructio of the morals of others , as by the rigoi ou.s perfection of his own. " His. horn was the scat of the most unbounded ho pitality. Jt was for years the church ft all the surrounding country , and tl : Mcooa of tlio Methodist itinerant afte long nnd toilsome journeys. The write counted at ono limo over four hundrc preachers who had made his house the homo or rcstlng-placo. Congregate there , at first because it was a homo n deed for the weary and worn toilers , an subsequently because they wished to pti their respects and enjoy tlio society of i remarkable and venerable a man. Mr. Pickering enjoyed ut ins elcath tl distinction of being the oldest ollcotn Methodist preacher in the world. Dr. Slovens closes his biography t Faying that lie was a "perfect gontlomr in manners and appearance and liber to all uhristians. Such was Georf Pickering pure in character , laborloi in life , triumphant in death. " Mr. Pickering was the father of Mr George W. Frost of this city and tl grandfather of Mr. George P. Hemis , al : well known here. A short time since Mr. Mentis erected ve.ry costly and beautiful monument the memory of Mr. Pickering nnel 1 wife ami family in the cemetery in Wa tliam , Mass. , and ho has donated $5,0 to the now church on condition th tlio church is nutne.it after I grandfather , Gcorgo Pickering Ucm whoso numn ho bears , and ho will dtvuti his subscription conditionally , if otli amounts are raised to complete a su stantial cdllico that will bo an honor the church and an ornament to ttio cit Mr. Ucmls has also given a momorl window to tlio Sewartl street churc ( Rev. Mr. Savidgc ) , besides other ben factions to other struggling 'churches ai societies in the city. It is thought th this will socnro the construction ol church costing at least $75,000 ami pt sibly $100,000. There are few really lii churches in the city and every addition ono is a source of pride and gratilicatitj 3 not only to the church most inturostc j but to all oilier denominations.
