cflQo of These Who Bear the Burdons
and Others Who Share the Pleasure
j; E w- York, Aug o.—Has civilization
laude women happy ? Civilization felicitates
itself that it has made divers strenuous
efforts in this direction. It would be easy
to say a good dial on both- sides of the
question. Modern women are probably
happier and more unhappy than the men of
Walking through a crowded tenement
ftreet late in the afternoon when the whole
population had sought refuge on the door
steps and the sidewalk, it struck mo that
them was an appreciable and fairly con
stant difference between the expression of
face of the women and die men. The
struggle for daily bread was Tiurder on the
women. They looked older in proportion
to their probable years, anil their faces hud
more lines upon them. They looked, when
not animated in talk, joyless. The men
wre not jovial by any means, but one day
was over and they had not begun to lift the
burdens of another. The woman of the
swarming tenement district, if she has a
bl ight spot in her life, has it when her lover
coines. Her childhood has not many
pleasures in it and her nature life is apt to
have fewer. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
ami the rest of the week are serious days to
her, especially if there is small proportion
of the lover left in the rough-spoken hus
ftie woman of the more favored part of
society seems to have at least her share of
the good things of life, especially at this
time of year, when she is off on her annual
play spell while her mate attends to business
m the hot city streets at home. Civiliza
tion has lifted her old-time cares off her
hands. .She neither spins nor weaves, nor
sews to excess. She keeps herself cool and
pretty. She enjoys music. She reads tho
latest magazine. Her daughters are—say
w hut the world will of neglect of parents—
d-1 voted'to her, especially if she is charming,
yhe hasn't that sense of responsibility
which oppresses her husband. She is taken
care of. She lias leisure for visiting and
conversation. She is interested iu tho men,
women and happenings of her day. She
can applaud or shudder with a sense that,
come what may, this side of a financial
panic, it is all one to her. Women consti
tute a large proportion of the American
leisure class, and it seems to outsiders as if
a leisure class stood an excellent chance of
having an excellent time.
On tho other hand, the conditions of
modern life separate man and wife to such
an extent ns almost to overbalance the
woman’s superior chance of happiness.
They live in different worlds. His head is
in bank or counting house or Wall street
when at home, and he has not time to
interest himself in the art or tho literature
that make his wife’s world. Sho gpes into
society for an occupation. He has all the
occupation he wants out of it. She is a
German student or takes up the Russian
novelists. II i calls it her latest fail and
picks up his newspaper. She keeps closer
abreast of the times in some way than ho
and doesn’t find him sympathetic as regards
her impressions of the last man or event.
Sho is quick to form an opinion,an courant,
with everything abort her. He is self
absorbed, not responsive. She invents all
manner of resources against ennui, but is
sometimes bored in the luxurious drawing
room where he has left her alone. Some
times even her very passivity as regards the
on goings of the world makes her morbidly
concerned a.: to its going right. There are
w omen who take the world’s problems so
seriously, are so troubled with mental doubts
and questionings, that their leisure for
thought is a curse. To plunge into the active
life of their husbands would bo n whole
some mental tonic. Take it all in all each
sex has its difficulties to wrestle with.
Neither in the long run gets much advan
tage over the other.
THE FRENCH MILLINER.
A big-eyed, slender, nervous-looking
madaine, whose accent leaves no doubt that
she is a “French” milliner in a more literal
sense than some of our Parisian toyers with
lace and ribbons, has based some claim to
more than ordinary favor among New
York bonnet lovers the past year upon the
assertion that she is the great granddaughter
of the Empress Josephine's milliner —that
unlucky creature who saw her bandboxes
kicked "over and came herself within an ace
of feeling the touch of tho imperial foot
when it was discovered that Josephine had
ordered thirty-eight bonnets in one month.
For the correctness of her genealogy it
would bike a bolder scribe to vouch, but it
has served her in good stead from a business
point of view ai least, This descendant of
the maltreated Empress’ maltreated favorite
held a completed summer bonnet up to view,
twirling it on the tips of her quick French
fingers, the other day. It was a gauze
bonnet, small and giving somehow the
effect of a watery coolness. Jt was not
white and it was not gray or groen, but it
looked as if a mermaid might wear it when
the sunbeams struck hot through the waves
down Is'low. It was going to liar Harbor,
she said, and a half dozen more were going
with it. No woman, it is the French milli
ner’s theory, ever had as many bonnets as
she wanted and no woman ever will. All
women have the bonnet mania to some ex
tent, but the craze, when it has once
nmmed a victim for its own, knows no
bounds. A bonnet for every day in tho
year, or as many changes per diem as Berry
AV.-tn lias of trousers, would hardly satisfy
the bonnet maniac. To bring over two
dozen in a huge bonnet trunk from Pi ris
and to buy considerably more than tliut
number to eke out the French “creations”
at borne is not, it is said, at all an uncom
mon feat for one woman in the course of one
of our four brief seasons. There is a
monopoly in bonnets as well elsewhere, for
the extra bonnets of the bonnet foils if
equitably distributed wouldn’t begin to go
around among the women who are reason
ably well satisfied with a single now ono

Story of an Australian Woman-The
Case of Miss Cass.
London’, July 16.—The London season is
fast drawing to a close; tho fun was so fast
and furious during jubilee week, and, prob
ably, the drafts oti the bank accounts of the
people were so much larger than usual that
Loudon is very rapidly emptying out.
The brilliancy of the fuuetious attendant
upon the jubilee is probably tho reason why
the ordinary events with which the season
winds up seem very uninteresting and tame
this year; in fact, I havo never seen London
look so much like August so early in July
ivs it does at.present, notwithstanding the
lovely weather which still prevails.
Tiie cricket matches at Lords excited very
little attention, interest being chiefly re
markable from tlxe display of gowns which
had been worn before as described in the
society papers. The Queen and court will
lvmove to Osborne next Monday or Tues
day, and then the season may be said to
have closed. During all the fatiguo and
excitement, incident to tho jubilee festivi
ties, the Queen has preserved her good
health and her good humor, facts which
are more surprising to her, probably, than
to any one else since it is w ell known that
she looked forward with much anxiety to
the enormous amount of work which would
be entailed upon her. It is the hope of
everybody in England that her experience
will tear'll her that she is bettor off and her
]>co) ile as well, when she comes out into the
world, and for the rest of her days she will
live in London and less iu the wilds of Scot
If fishes ever smile, the finny ones of the
Atlantic must be grinning broadly at the
expense of a lady who is at this moment
steaming over them towards New Zealand.
But the fishes in a certain old fish pond at
Hampton Court must be grinning broader
still. One of the blue-blooded, but penu
rious, old ladies who live at this royal
almshouse was, it seems, furnished with a
ticket for viewing the ceremony in the
Abbey on Jubilee Day. But as the ticket
for the Abbey was not accompanied by a
return ticket to Waterloo, or the price
thereof, the decayed gentlewoman (horrible
phrase), set about selling her seat. The
ticket was put into tho hands of an
for disposal at a re
respectable figure, and he had not
long wait for a purchaser. A ‘“Royalty
mad” Australian woman, who came over in
April with never to be realized hopes of
being presented at a drawing-room, and
who has since consoled herself for her failure
by frightening all the cats out of Grosvenor
Square in vain attempts to give fashionably
attended musical evenings answex-ed the
agent's advertisement. Fifteen sovereigns
in order to get within a hundred yards of
one were duly handed over by the antipo
dean female. Ten of them were sent to the
old lady at Hampton Court, and five were
pocketed by the agent as commission. On
the eventful morning 10 o’clock found tho
female from the under side, clad in colors
which would have taken the shine out of a
gross of rainbows, at the gates of the Abliey.
She had been cautioned by the agent that
she w'as for that occasion only Mrs. C ,
Hampton Court Palace, whose name ap
peared on the card. But when the gentle
manly usher at the door took the card, and
glancing at the name pondered a while be
fore admitting her, she began to quake with
fear. And she quaked with another senti
ment than fear wdxen the usher spoke to a
superior usher in an audible whisper to the
effect that “this isn’t Mrs. C ; Mrs. C
has got yellow hair and no teeth, and this
one's got yellow teeth and no hair. IV hat
are we to do?” “Why, send her away,”
was the reply; and the poor “buster” hail to
go sadly anil sorrowfully away from the
door which had cost her £ls. Then she went
and booked her passage for homo, and tho
cats in Grosvenor Square are at rest.
The one topic of discussion in London
this week has been tho case of Miss Cass, a
respectable lady who was arrested in Regent
street between 9 and 10 p. m., on the charge
of soliciting. The papers not having any
thing else for a sensation, liecame fairly
hysterical over it, and a motion to adjourn
m the House of Commons which
was their round about way of getting
at, a discussion of Miss Cass’ case
resuited in a disastrous defeat of tho
government. What Gladstone, the Par
nellites and the Liberals combined have
been unable to do has been accomplished
by a little unknown seamstress. 1 have
the greatest sympathy with this young
woman and must not be understood to be
belittling her wrongs, but it does srern the
most absurd thing in the world that in
order to right this, tho whole of London
should bo turned topsy-turvy, and the stg
bilitv of her majesty’s government, as at
present constituted, should be endangered.
Another thing is that while there is all this
hysterical shrieking over Miss Cass’ case
neither the public nor Parliament seem to
realize that it is only an incidental abuse
growing out of that which is the greatest dis
grace to the greatest city in the world.
London turns her vice into the streets,
other cities try and confine it within doors
and within certain limits. Tho result is
London is the most immoral city in tl o
world The ill effect of this system, is that
not only the most fashionable quarter of
the city after 8 o’clock at night is a seeth
ing mass of corruption, for that sort of
thing always exists in every large city; hut
the dreadful part of it is that not only are
tlio feelings of decent men and women of all
classes outraged, by having this specta
cle thrust under their noses. But the great
est evil of all comes from the fact that
poorly educated, badly trained girls, of the
lower orders who are compelled to drudge
all (lay for a poor pittance, and who, not
knowing of the iiennlties and pains inci
dent to a life such as is Ini by women of tho
denii nionde, see the masses of girls who
present the spectacle of having abundant
leisure and plenty of money, and this the
greatest temptation that can possibly lie
placed before the girls of the working
classes is furnished by the stupid English

LILLIAN RUSSELL’S DIAMONDS.
Amusing Experiences of the Popular
New York, Aug. 7.—Lillian Russell was
very poor when her costumer sued her for
$1,300 for dresses made and delivered. Lil
lian had no property that could be attached,
although tho Sheriff searched diligently for
something upon which he could levy. It
was supposed that she possessed a quantity
of diamonds of the first water. Thousands
of persons had seen her wear a glittering
tiara, and the glare Of the footlights hud
been flashed from diamond pins, eardrops
and rings on Lillian’s person into the eyes
of audiences on both sides of the Atlantic.
Persons posted on diamonds thought Lillian’s
gems were real and valued them at $12,000
at least. She was asked about tho stones,
and her reply made the sensation of the
day in New York. She said they were
mere paste imitations. Thus was another
illusion of the stage exposed. The popular
belief in the almost fabulous wealth of
jewelry displayed by stage stars suffered a
rude shock. The gems were calmly pro
duced by the fair Lillian, and it needed no
expert to see that they were almost value
less imitations. The actress was not at all
abashed by the exposure. She owned up to
the stage deception with perfect coolness.
But her admirers were very much chagrined.
The costumer got nothing by the suit.
Lillian had no money. She explaintd that
her living cost all she earned, and when
there was difficulty ui accounting for cer
tain large sums she said she supposed the
money must have been spent for candy.
The revelation of the amount of candy con
sumed by this young woman was appalling.
Lillian is now at Saratoga, She occupies
the elegant cottage on Union avenue that
once belonged to Dr. Leonard, and she
drives one of the prettiest turnouts at the
Springs. For a poor little player
girl who has spent all her money
for caramels she manages to
get along quite comfortably.
But the true story of the diamonds has not
been told. The audiences, whose eyes have
been dazzled by the flashing of her gems,
were not deceived. On the stage she wore
stones really worth $12,000. When the suit
was brought these stones were removed from
their settings and in their places wero put
Lillian’s cousin, a young man who some
times sings in opera companies, took charge
of the real stones and kept them safely, so
long as there was any danger that the cos
tumer would be looking for them.
This young man was useful in many ways
to the law-worried actress. Owing to his
faithful activity, it was a long time before
summons to appear ill court could be served
upon her. She lived in an apartment house
uptown, and there were two exits from her
When the deputy appeared at one door
with a summons, the young man detained
him long enough to give Lillian a chance to
skip out of the other. Many amusing ex
periences and hairbreadth escapes she liad
before the officers of the law finally caught
her napping and served the summons.
