OUR AMERICAN ADAPTABILITY.
Admirable Polss of the Women Who
Hare Attained to Htsrh Position.
Lady Curzon, the Vlcerlne of India,
stands as a shining example of the
facility and the adaptability of the
American woman. Occupying a posi
tion which brings her In continual con
tact with royalty, she bears herself
with as much dignity and distinction
as If she had been born to the pur
ple. No daughter of the reigning
house of Great Britain could sustain
herself In the place of Lady Curzon
with more admirable polce than she
exhibits In ail of the great functions
In which she It called to figure. Lady
Curzon belongs to what would be
called a new family, even In America.
She has not behind her the genera
tions of culture which many Ameri
can women can point to. She was
brought up In Chicago, a town that Is
conspicuously associated with the com
mercial Idea. Her acquisitions were
not aided by the Influence of hered
itary culture. Her achievements are
the fruit of a keen and active mind
and an agreeable personality under the
spur and encouragement of liberal ad-
antagt-s. Her accommodation to the
requirements and the opportunities of
large riches shows the difference be
tween the British and the American
systems. In Kngland It requires cen
turies to manufacture the sort of la
dles and gentlemen wbo are often de-
eloped in this country In a single gen
