Of course tho new woman, who thinki
(ho is n great succes uh a companion to
after dinner coffee, will riso to object to
such wholesale condemnation, hut who
hm a clearer titlo to criticise than tho
king of after dinner talkers?
Club lifo produce after dinner talk

A majority are too conciou of their
own effort to reach that distinction.
Almost ai umny nro in too deadly ear
nest over their purticulur line of work
to heed the grace and the lightsome
uos of coffee, talk and liocomo popular.
When asked if bin judgment wan the
rennit of experience, Mr. Depew nnid:
"VtH, I have beard women talk at
Porosis, at dinner political, rhnrltuMe,
reform dinner, druinntio dinner, din

it' Among themselves they aro well
enough, but in mixed dinner party
they fiH in out of place.
"They are not in touch with their
audience nor in accord with the spirit
of tho occasion. After dinner speaking

Of a aunVririif brother. In aiiddcu flight,

I have been at grcnt pain to get to
the bottom of the whole Htory. When I
first begun to truce it by inquirie
among circus managers, perforiueiHiid
i employee, I wn tnyelf a doubter. The
' whole thing wn no Htraiige, romantic
and remarkable that 1 did not give it
I It fcemcd IK) improbable, no Impowd
ble, that for a time I thought it absurd,
, too ridiculous to Investigate,
I I myself bud seen Carlotta on her
1 first apiearunce in America and re
member her a a great artist, a miperb
I creature, very dark, very Ismitiful, and
! inch eye, o large, so bluck at the first
look it Rcemed a though her face wn
I I do not remember whether Carlotta
wa Hpniihdi or Italian. She bud many

1 all over the world, following her pro
I fcwdoti, and on account of her splendid
I talent commanding the highest of aal
j The manager who induced the black
; eyed Carlotta to come to America in
i deed secured a prize that rare thing, a
' drawing card. The equestrienne came
. direct from St. Petersburg to New York,
bringing her own ring stock mid accom
panied by a groom.
There wn nooptiorttinity at that time
for tho company with which the artist
will to appear toopeu in New York, al
though during tho season riiiladclphia
and UoHtou wero favored with an opiHir
tunity of seeing a real queen of tho arena.
From all that I can learn tho foreign
artist wa exceedingly tractable, or, ns
the manager phrased it, "easy to get
along with." Said thosenioi partner to
mo, "If tliero wa ever a woman who
minded her own liusini ss, it is she. "
Corhitta, though, wa reticent and
dignified, and although she wa not fa
miliar nor permitted any familiarity on
the part of the other mcmlicr of the
company every attache admired her and
Kiko in her praise. It was the aiiinu
with the ring people, the concert folk
and the working force.
The Is antiful rider at this timo wore
serious ii I r, mid while slio wa not
pining away or running Into a decline
a smile rarely low to her lip, except
when the applause rung around the ring
and the people' plaudit caused her
black eye to dance with pleasure
Kime surmised that the woman wn
homesick and sighed for more familiar
Keened and surroundings, and ono sym
pathizing sisti-r, who had herself been
touched by a Cupid's dart, remarked:
"IguesMif the truth were known Car
lotta is iu love!"
That little mis wa a good guesscr.
She must have been a genuine Yankee.
(If course such a beautiful woman
ami such mi artist had admirer in the
company who would have breathed mat
rimonial iispiiatloli if they had re
ceived liny encouragement.
It i a matter ot fact that tho senior
iniinogcr, a widower, endeavored in
vain to capture the charming equestri
enne, but in spito of hi position and
hi solid fortune he received no more
encouragement than the other ambition
Whatever wa tho story of her heart,
tho woman had no coiilidant, mid the
season wa far advanced before any of
u wero any tho wiser a to her anteced
ents. A performer who had traveled much
abroad and appeared in foreign ci reuse
with our lady magnificent visited our

to myself. That was the lust timo I ever

and years l-fnr I even heard of them,
and then 1 obtaiued my information In
a peculiar way the information came

I had engaged to go out with a tent
shew and wu sent for by tho manager
just ufter the holidays to do sotno writ
ing tip for Ihe next scuson. He bud la-en
; building some very coetly tableau curs
for the street pa rack-, and he took me
over to the winter quartet that 1 might
see them and expend some adjective de
scriptive of their massive grandeur.
At tho quarter 1 met several attache
with whom I hud traveled In previous
years, and one, Sailor Dan, wns over-
. joyed to meet me, u wo hud not seen
each other for year. The old canva-
i man' greeting wa a honest u it wa
; hearty. He explained:
"I am milking a net of cage covers for
the old man."
" Where have you lcii since I saw

i "Down in South America," he re
plied. "Hud a good, a greut time, but
after nil said mid done I'm glad to Imj
buck in tin country. Tliero i no place
like old Philadelphia, after all."
Fortunately tho manager was called
to another pint of the quarter, giving
Sailor Dun iieliimco to talk, mid ho wu
a greut talker.
" Yon see," said Dan, "when thatscii
