A gentleman who attended the ex
hibition at Metropolitan hall Satu'r
day evening,and felt captivated by the
grace and beauty of the performers,
wants to know "what is more beauti
ful than that?" Beauty gets plenty of
praise. Poets sing it, romancers fur
nish it in abundance to their hpmiues,
dramatists use it as the motive of their
most stirring plays, painters and
sculptors delight to portray it, all the
world worships it: and yet there is
much to be said about the noble char
acters of uiriv little wnn-n. There is
gy, unselfishness, ami gayet' or an
ugly little woman than m half a dozen
tall, queenly beauties, who have to be
on the watch all the time to pose well
and make their points effective.
There have been men in the world
who thought it a fine thing to say that
"an ugly woman has no place in the
economy of nature. But if the re
cords of the world were intelligibly
writen it would be found that ugly
little women have been the heroines,
the helpmates of the heroes. It is
the function of beauty to get men into
trouble. Helen of Troy, Cleopatra,
Mary Queen of Scots, and hundreds oi
others, wherever they came they
brought calamity. Beauty and an
guish have walked hand in hand the
downward slope to death, and when
ever the poet dreams of fair women he
is sure to dream of something doleful.
If he were to dream of ugly little
women it would be full of brightness,
loyalty, devotion, sincerity, fortitude.
and all those other loveable female
qualities that make some one happy.
Tall Beauty is epic; Little Ugly is
lvric. homelike. Just think what a
deep-seara compliment is involved in
calling irregularity of features homeli
ness. It means that she is not for the
ball-room, but for the home, for the
friendships that cluster around the
hearth, for the merry little sociable,
the picnic or off-hand game, or for the
darkened sick-room, where she brings
rest and comfort. ' 'Pretty is as pretty
does" is an old maxim, whose truth is
only half appreciated, for in the plain
ness of feature and insignificance of
person df homely women there are
often found an earnestness, a whole
souled sweetness and sympathetic ex
pression that win love far quicker than
mere beauty. The world could far
more easily afford to lose its supplies
of beauty than to give up its precious
stores of ugly little women. The
beauties wait to be loved; the others
delight in loving.
