THS FRENCH WOMAN.
Max O’Reil Draws a Charming and
True Picture of His Countrywomen.
From the Philadelphia Press.
In the French household the woman is
/jueen. Her empire over her children is
perfect, and she leads her husband by the
nose. He does not complain of this; on the
contrary, he enjoys it, and he thinks that,
after all, much worse might happen to him.
The wife knows all her husband’s affairs,
and when he has a few savings to invest he
does not think it beneath him to ask her ad
vice. She knows, as well as he, the current
price of stocks at tho Bourse, and if he
should be seized with a pruriency to embark
in speculation she brings to bear all her in
fluence over him to induce him to buy con
sols or any other government securities.
Call ou her husband on business and if he is
from home you will not need to make a sec
ond visit on that account. She has all the
affaire of the firm at her Augers’ end. Every
housekeeper keeps a memorandum book
in which she writes down all her ex
The French woman has a genius for cook
ery and is thoroughly awake to the fact
that it is good policy in marriod life to see
that her husband dines well. The politics
of matrimony is a science inborn in our
women. Let a Frenchwomen be rich or poor
—the mistress of a mansion in the Champs
Elysees, or of a poor fifth-floor little flat at
Montmartre or Batignolles—she lias always
the charm of feminality. She is always
smart, always alert, and has a little flutter
ing, bustling way with her that is bound to
keep awake your interest in ail she does.
She may be sometimes a little affected, but
she is never vulgar. On Sundays and holi
days she dresses still a little more elegantly
than usual, but she never appears to be in
Sunday clothes. The middle class French
woman is lady-like, not only in her dress,
but in her speech. You will never see her
loaded with cheap jewelry, this great
stamp of vulgarity, and when she speaks
to you, you can not guess whether she is
the’ wife of a gentleman or of a small trades
I have often heard French women called
frivolous. But this is the height of absur
dity. If frivolity consists in’ trying to re
main young and attractive as long as possi
ble then the French bourgeois is frivolous.
If, again, frivolity consists in making a
home cheerful and gay, and preventing &
husband from being absorlied by the cares
of business, then she is frivolous. If this
woman were frivolous how could you ex
plain the adoration for the mother which,
even to the lowest of tho low, you find in
French children? How could this be unless
she were the example of all domestic vir
tues? If a Frenchman of 40 would h-'sitate
to take an important step in life without
first consulting his mother surely it must be
that lie recognizes in her a wise guide. It
would Vie no mere naivetee on mv part to
dwell longer on the absurd charge of frivol
ity. Take now the shopkeeping classes.
There you will see the wife, the active part
ner of her husband. Behold them both as
the commercial traveler displays his goods
on the counter. She is not a mere house
keeper, with or without wages; she is a ptirt
ner, not merely a sleeping partner. This
not only enables her, if she happens to be
come a widow, to carry on the business
without her husband, to be independent
and to bring up her children. She has not,
to obtain her living on her husband’s
death, to become a working housekeeper
or a nurse; she is the mistress of her own
house as before, and now the head of tho
You can not obtain a perfect notion of
French industry unless you pay a visit to
our peasantry. I must say that now the
woman ceases to be attractive. She does
not even attempt to look so. Sunburnt,
hale and hearty, behold her, dear English
tourist, that is the fortune of France. She
does not wear fringes on her forehead, I
will admit, she does not wear flounces on a
second-hand shirt, or a hat with flowers and
feathers, and she totally ignores one franc
diamonds. She has a coarse serge gown on
and simple snowy cap. She is clean and
tidy and the personification of industry. I
do not doubt, however, that, thanks to the
blessings of gratuitous and compulsory edu
cation, the time will soon come when she
will want to imitate the ladies of the town
in her habits and dress, and that her sons
will despise the dear land where they were
born and will all want to be clerks and
swagger in town with high stand-up col
lars, tight trousers and sticks. Thank good
ness, this spectacle is not yet to be seen in
This good, hard-working, thrifty woman
is the backbone of the country. The amount
of work she can get through is simply pro
digious. You will always see her busy,
either working in her field, selling the pro
duce of her little farm in the market-place of
the nearest town or engaged about her little
household. She is not attractive, but she is
a picture of health and contentment. Shares
or bonds may go up or down without dis
turbing her peace; she holds none. She
trusts her savings to nobody. Bankers,
she thinks, company directors and stock
brokers may lx* very respectable persons,
but when the old stocking is swollen with
sf. pieces she rounds off her little family do
main and buys anew field, something she is
quite sure to find in its place when she wakes
up in the morning.
Let me give you an example of her fru
gality, ana allow me to take it from a per
sonal recollection. My mother has a house
maid who has been with her twenty-five
years. Not long ago, while in France, I
took aside this old servant. “I know how
devoted you have been to my mother,” I'
said to her. “ You are not strong, and I
dare say you will not wish to go into ser
vice agaiii; hut make yourself easy about
this. If anything should happen to my
mother, I shall see that you are comfortable
for the rest of your life. But,” I said in
quiringly, “I have no doubt you have some
thing of your own by this time?” Imagine
my surprise when I hoard her toll me she
had saved over 10,000f. (between $2,000 and
82,500) all well invested, including one share
in the Suez Canal Company.
In society a French lady plays her part
with the same excellence that sho shows jn
other stations of life. It is true that here
and there you will come across a French
woman, bitten with new-fangled notions,
discoursing of politics, the moral and intel
lectual progress of tho people, social eman
cipation and other tedious topics; but such
black sheep are raro; the great majority are
content to play their natural part, to hie tho
ornaments of society, to bring to social in
tercourse the tact, grace and harmony
which form its chief redeeming points, and
without which life would become, if not in
supportable, very near akin to that of tho
savages. Max O’Eell.
A PULLMAN CAR EPISODE.
Mr. William Nye Recalls Senator Le
lancl Stanford’s Part In It.
From the New York World,
Some years ago a big, fat and pompous
tnan strolled into a sleeping car on board a
Union Pacific train with tho air of a man
who owned things. After he had looked at
everybody till ho hod gratified liis curiosity,
he settled down in a sent and began to watch
from the window the swiftly changing
landscape. The sleeping-car conductor put
his hand on the shoulder of the large, glob
ular man and asktsl him if he had a Pull
man ticket. Tho wide man spread his legs
a little wider, so as to take up a little more
tponi, breathed in about 2,700 cubic feet of
ciebrsska oxoue anil said be did not have to
have a ticket. “You have to show a ticket
here in this car or go into the car whore you
belong,” said the urbane conductor who as
sists Sir fieorgo Pullman in giving his be
loveil sleep. “We are not carrying people
thw summer just to cultivate a friendly
i. h? lietween man and man.”
‘Do you know,” said the large man us he
thiviv back his coat so as to show a two
pound diamond, “that I can have you out of
a job in throe minutes and hang your pelt
on , the fence ns soon os wo get to Omaha f
"No, I didn’t know that, of course; but I
know that if you don’t show mu your au
thority for riding in-thu c*r I will call the
porter and we will use you to lubricate the
young and growing State of Nebraska.
You may be an eminent man, but you have
a way of concealing it that would baffle any
conductor in the United States.’’
“You will fmd out who I am when wo
get to Omaha,” said the large purple man,
looking at his seven-pound watch, and
snapping it so that a nervous woman nearly
jumped out of the ear. “You will then
know who I am, but it will be too late.”
“True, true,” said the conductor, musing
ly. “It will then bo indeed too late, for
nobody who comes to search for you will
know who you are, and you will be a very
“Young man, when you are my age I
hope you will know more.”
“Yes, sir. I also hope I will know more,
and I wish that you had been blessed by
"Sir, my name is a household word from
New York to San Francisco. If you had
ever traveled much you would not have to
ask for my ticket. You ought to be able to
recognize a man who has been in public life
as long as I have.”
“Possibly so,” said the conductor, taking
off his coat and calling the porter, “but
somehow you do not remind me of any
great man I ever saw. You look more to
me like a man who has struck a popular
chord in leaf lard or quelled tho national
cry for an earnest and tenacious style of
glue. As I said before, the rules of this
company require that you shall produce
currency, trass or ticket or get off and walk.
Will you snow us your credentials or earn
the everlasting enmity of the road by fall
ing off the platform or mussing up the right
Tho large man’s breath came quick and
his brow grew black, as he ground his teeth
and went out of the car. I supposed ho had
gone out to plunge off the platform as we
sped swiftly down the grade. I went back
to see him do it, for I had never seen a man
distribute himself over a monotonous sweep
of country that way; hut, much to my sur
prise, he went into a large, yellow special
car that was attached to the tnqn, and we
afterward learned that he was Leland Stan
ford, who has since that filled to overflow
ing a seat in the United States Seuate.
The conductor continued to hold his posi
tion for vears after, though several times he
made this same sad error of not recognizing
some of our most eminent men in politics,
art atld letters.
Twice he missed it on me. But I did npt
report him. for he ought to maintain disci
pline, I claim, and liesidos, I had shaved off
my moustache since we last met.
We ought not to ask too much of a con
ductor. Our great men are constantly
changing their appearance by putting on
different hats or getting their hair cut, and
a conductor is almost forced to demand
a ticket or some other guarantee of
good fait!sroin every one who travels with
Gov. Stanford i? a very large man physi
cally, and this gives his brain a wonderful
amount of sea-room and a good chance to
stretch itself. He enjoys being in the Sen
ate very much, for it gives him an oppor
tunity to meet other wealthy men and helps
him to forget about the low, common peo
ple who elected him. He is sorry now that
he did not go to the Senate years ago. It is
the best place to go to recover from brain
fag that he knows of, and he says that his
fag hasn’t looked so well for years.
LAW AND JUSTICE IN ARIZONA.
Holding a Lawyer tor Contempt of
Court for Making an Appeal
FYom the San Francisco Chronicle.
He is an old resident of California and has
seen some very queer times and many
changes. He got to talking the other night
of a trip he made to Arizona some years
ago, juft about the time of tho Tombstone
It was quite extraordinary, he said. The
country was full of desperadoes and bad
gamblers, and they were very dangerous,
too. They ruled Tombstone at that time.
A friend of mine was in Tombstone, and
one day he saw a man walking quietly
along who was a noted desperado and mur
derer—a man for whose head a big reward
was offered. He knew the chief of police,
and he went and told him about it. Inside
of the day he got a notice that they gave
him one hour to quit Tombstone, and he
quitted. Now, at Tucson there was law and
order, and those same desperadoes who
went about shooting in Tombstone would
go down to Tucson and behave like the
most guileless of citizens.
This was mainly on account of an old judge
they had there, a German, who feared none
of them and had his own emphatic way of
serving out the law. They knew if they
got into a scrape in Tucson they were in for
it, and they’d get no mercy. He had per
haps rude ways of carrying out tho law,
this old judge, but they were very effective.
One day a notorious character was brought
up for something. They had the whipping
post there then. The old judge looked at
“I think I see you before—no!”
The culprit admitted that he had been
there on several occasions.
“Wal, I just sentence you to forty lashes.
You take twenty of them to-morrow and
then you was released on your own recogni
zance, and you come back in a week and
take tho other twenty.”
The fellow had his twenty lashes, and he
hasn’t been seen in Tucson since.
Another little example of the JudgeV. wav
of doing business was the ease of a man
brought up before him for firing off a pistol
in the street. They took $340 from him
when he was arrested.
“I joost fine you $200,” said the Judge.
“Why,” said the prisoner, “in San Fran
cisco they would only flue me $5 or $lO.
“You vas in Tucson, mein friend; $200.”
Tho man was complaining bitterly after
he paid the fine.
“Don’t kick!” said adother. “Yon were
lucky. If he’d known you had $340 on you
he’d have fined yon all of it.”
gome fellow who was being tried moved
for a change of venue.
“You vant a change of venue? What
for?” asked tho judge.
“Because this court is prejudiced against
me, and I wont get a fair trial.”
“You say this court is prejudiced against
you, and you won’t get a fair trial? You
vant n change of venue, mein friend? I
joost fine you S3OO for contempt of court
to begin with. Now, we’ll proceed with
AN ATROCIOUS CRIME.
A Mother Murders Her Son, Who Had
Just Returned From America.
Puria Cable to New York World.
There is, something peculiarly shocking in
the circumstances attendant on a murder
which has just been committal at Orantova,
in Bi>ain. Years ago, it appears, a young
man who was a native of that town, emi
grated to America in the bojie of making a
fortune. Having to some extent succeeded
in his object, he returned recently to his old
home, where his aged parents still resided.
Remembering their age and infirmities, he
was airaid to reveal lus identity to them too
abruptly, for they had had no tidings of
their absent son 'for a long time past,
aud possibly thought that he was no
longer living. Ho went, therefore, to
the old homestead of his youth without
saying who he was. He saw his aged father
arid mother, who did not recognize him, and
after asking their hospitality as a’ stranger
he eonfldrto his mother his pmse, con
taining ft large sum of money and other
property. The sight Of the tmaaure excited
the ouplditv of the woman ftiid inriurod tier
to plan ft most abominable crime— namely,
the murder of the traveler whom she
lodged beneath her roof. She sought to
prevail upon her husband, to bwxwie her ac
complice, and. failing in this, determined to
murder her guest single handed. She ac
complished her fell design by means of a
hatchet, with•'liich she almost severed her
victim’s head from hi* body. After she was
urinated she learned that she killed her own
child. Hhe displayed neither regret nor re
morse, merely otiaorving that he ought to
have revealed hi* identity.
THE MORNING NEWS: MONDAY, AUGUST 20, 1887.
HE WAS VERY CALM.
The Dakota Man Who Was Not
Frightened at a Cyclone.
From the Dakota Bell.
A well-known resident of Sioux Falls was
out driving in the country one day last
week. While coming back and when about
four miles from the city, a heavy wind canto
up. To the well-known resident it looked
cvclonish, and he drove up to the first house.
He went in and found three or four Indies,
who were alone in the house and somewhat
“There is no danger, ladies, no danger, I
assure you. Simply a straight wind —no
cyclone. Keep cool. By the way—er —is
there a cellar under the house?” $
“Urn!—that is good. No danger, though,
as I said. Pray keep calm and it will be
over directly. Where—where did you say
the cellar door was ?”
“Over there in the corner.”
“Ah, yes; thanks, this one. Yes, I’ll open
it —might as well lie open as shut, you know.
There will be no need of going down, how
ever. Simply a little thunder shower ac
companied by wind.”
"We’re not very much frightened.”
“Of course not—that’s right—neither am
I.” Just then the house began to shake and
the limb of a tree scratched against the
window. “Don’t be at all alarmod, ladies;
you keep right still. Good celiar, I sup
pose ?” he added, peering down.
Here a board blew off the fence and
slapped against the side of the house.
“I’m going down a moment, ladies; don’t
lie frightened; the house is safe,” and he
shot down the stairs, slipped off" a broken
step toward the bottom and landed in a box
of eggs. “Stay right where you are, ladies,”
lie snouted from the cellar; “it is about all
Just then the wind blew open the outside
cellar door, and an empty barrel rolled
“Great—oh, nothing, nothing at all!”
howled the man as he leaped over to the
other side of the cellar; “try and be calm,
1 allies. This wind will purify the atmos
phere. You aren't scared much, I hope?”
“Oh, no; not much.”
“That's right; keep up your courage—
ladies are usually so easily frightened.
Say,” as he tried to dig the sand, which was
blowing in, out of his eyes, and stepped in
a crock of butter—“say, would one of yon
mind going around and shutting that out
side door?” *
“We will when it stops blowing a little.”
Then an empty box tipped over and
rolled down the stairway, the wind roe red
louder than ever, and tliere was a sharp
clap of thunder.
“Be calm, ladies; try and bo calm for
your own sakesl Oh, great heavens, it’s
going, it’s going!” he groaned as he crouched
in one corner in a box of glass fruit jars and
thought he saw one corner of the house
raise a little. “Oh, good Lord, I’m lost —
it’s going sure! Keep cool, ladies, there is
no danger! For heaven’s sake, see that cor
ner flop up! Be calm, ladies; simply a little
flurry of tho wind! Oh, I’d give a thousand
dollars to be out of this!” and he dug his
feet into the box and broke two jars of
strawberries. “Try and bear up, ladies!
It wfil soon be over! Oh, if I ever get out
alive I’ll leave this blasted country! Good
gracious! ladies, when are you going to shut
the door? Be calm! but shut that door!”
“Moliie has gone out to shut it now—the
wind is all over,” replied one of the lailios.
“Yes, it’s all over, I know,” replied the
man, cautiously coming to the foot of the
stairs; “I told youit soon would be. You
see there was no reason for becoming so
alarmed. But you ladies will, you always
will,” he added as he came on up and peered
out tho corner of a window. “I don’t doubt
that you would have been still more scared
if I had not happened along and made you
understand there was really no danger. ’’
Then he went out and started for town.
But just before he got there the man who
lived at the house, having arrived home
meantime, overtook him riding a big white
horse, and made him pay $2 for the butter
he hail spoiled, aud $1 50 for the fruit and
75c. for the eggs, and took a $5 bill and said
he didn’t have any change and rode off with
The Fatal 13 Again.
From the New York World.
Thirteen compositors from the World
office went to Pier 1 North river before day
light Sunday morning to go on a fishing
excursion on the sloop yacht Startle. Ed
ward J. McCrea, of Eighth street, South
Brooklyn, was one of the vessel’s crew. As
he stood on tho stringpiece casting off the
bow line the sloop lurched and McCrea fell
into the river. The nien on board heal'd
him cry once, but before they could grope
their way'arounil in the darkness he went
down. The next day his dead body was
found with a wound in the forehead. He
probably struck the float as he fell and was
A few hours before the sloop came up
from Bay Ridge to get the thirteen compos! -
tors McCrea, with others, went into Seeley’s
restaurant, there to get some chowder.
They found thirteen plates set. After the
vessel was made fast to pier 1 McCrea
spoke to another member of tho crew about
the coincidence in the thirteen chowder
plates and thirteen in the expected party.
A suggestion was made that a tramp be in
vited to make the fourteenth excursionist.
McCrea laughed and said that only foolish
people were superstitious. An hour later
he was dead.
Another singular coincidence is that Com
positor Webb, the thirteenth man in the
party, also fell overboard, but was picked
up and put to bed.
