What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

HELEN COULD IS ONE AMONG THEM. $1,.le Well .treed to Legal Lore—A liard Student at the Law sritool— \'attired Creditable Etta ...Ination tte- redly. (New York Correspondence.) ELEN GOULD'S days in the wom- an's class of the law school of the University of New York are already be- coming memorable ones in t he history of the institution.When she entered and be- gan the study of law it was very quietly. She and her professors and friends endeavored to conceal the fact as much as possible from the world, for the elder daughter of Jay Gould, with $15,000.000 or more, had no relish for the many eyes that would surely be upon her was it known generally that she was going to the uni- versity building in University place three morningsof every week to listen to the lectures of Prof. Isaac Franklin Russell. There were eighty fair stu- dents, all full of ambition to encompass the utmost lore of Blackstone when Miss Helen Gould, and her sister Anna, entered Prof. Russell's class. The Gould never saw more than halt of their Ill:LEN GOULD. fellow students, save at odd intervals. The daughters of the late seventy -times millionaire were in the morning class. Indeed, the morning class, which con- tained about forty members, was by far the most exclusive and fashionable one. The Gould girls—for everybody in the woman's class was talking of the girl - ish Anna and the sweet-faced, serious Helen as \the Gould girls\ before they had been to half a dozen lectures --had not entered until after the term had be- gun. Their first appearance in Prof. Russell's lecture room had caused a notable flutter. It had not been because all of the fair students of the law knew either Miss Helen Gould or Miss Anna Gould by sight. It was because the two quiet girls were accompanied by a pretty retinue of fair and fashionable women who seemed to be pitching into the Laze of the law solely for the pur- pose of keeping Miss Helen Gould com- pany—it never did seem as if Anna really meant to study law very hard. Among the coterie of fair ones so well known in society, who came in with the Gould girls, were Mrs. J. P. Munn, who has long been one of Mise Helen Gould's dearest friends; Mrs. Walter E. Hope. Mrs. John McClellan, Mise Sweetwer, Who is one of the wealthy merchant family of that nane the statuesque MISS PETTUS. Miss Pettus, whom every one In the cla' upon began to deeignate an \the new woman,\ because ehe was so pro- nounced in her latest fashions and fan- cies in dress, and was alwayn in the Yore -front of everything in the way of woman's progress, whether it were in dresui or thought or style: Miss Gleason, Klee Crane and Mise Wood. There wan nothing like \pets\ in the wornan'm law clans, but If there had been, theme select and' fashionable young women would have been known as the \Gould set.\ An it was, they were the constant companion, of \the Gould girls.\ The remarkable aptitude with which Miss Helen Gould grasped the funda- mental principia of the law made many of tie director' of the woman's, Legal Educational eoelety— which [mooted and le the especial pa- tron of thc N' , •11111n's law class --earnest- ly wish that aria may eontinue the \study beyond the fundamental tir he« Nlitt• fieletr Gould has a compre- lo mlnd,\ said Mrs Leonard Webe,. the itrtmaitlent ttf the air...t ore time a nul agnIn.

Linthieum, Miss Marcella Malone and Miss Eleanor C. Clarke. Prof. Russell himself, who is highly pleased with Miss Helen Gould's pro- gress in the law, was averse to speaking of any of his pupils personally when a reporter asked him in his office in the Eqiiitable building to give the public some idea as to how the \Gould girls,\ with the fifteen millions of dollars each, had got along with their great and self-imposed task. Finally he said: \Miss Helen Miller Gould, with her sister Anna and their friend, Mrs. John P. Munn, joined the woman's law class at the University of the City of New York In November. 1894. \Miss Anna's academic studies were interrupted by her marriage to the Count de Castellane and her departure (Or Europe. \Mrs. Munn and Miss Helen Gould continued their studies and completed the course. It is true that they have passed the final examination for the chancellor's certificate, which will be awarded at the closing exercises of the woman's law class at the concert hall of the Madison Square Garden. \This course of study must not be confounded with the full two years' course of professional study for the de- gree of bachelor of laws. No degree is given to the etudents of the woman's law class. The course lasts only four months, and the studies are quite ele- mentary. They are designed to be of service to business women and to ladles of fortune In private life, who are there- by aided to understand and appreciate the advice of counsel. Few of the wom- en who take this course aspire to the dignities and labors of the regular prac- titioner. Occasionally, however, one such appears whose interest prompts her to continue legal study professional- ly, with a view to graduation and active practice at the bar. At least three of the graduates of the wpman's law class are now counselors at law in this city. They are Miss Kate E. Hogan. Miss Melle Stanleyetta Titus and Miss Florence H. Da ngerfield.\ The professor pulled out a copy of a local paper. Pointing to Cholly Knickerbocker', column, he asked \Who wrote that?\ He was pointing to the big sign that Cholly had figured out. It read like this: HELEN GOULD, ; ATTORNEY AND COUNSELOR:. AT LAW. \Cholly wrote it.\ said the reporter. \Well I won't nay what kind, of a fellow I regard the man who could have written that and Imagined such a thing could ever come to pass,\ said the professor, laughing at It heartily. George Gould laughed at ChollY's idea, too, when he saw the paper. \It will never come to that, I guess.\ was all he would say about it. Miss Helen Gould herself was so 111 with the grip in her apartments in the Plaza hotel that she could not see the writer. She sent down word to the reporter by a maid that her sole ob- ject in studying law was to increase her infoimation upon a very important eel - (ewe, and thet she certainly should eon- Unue her studies although ‚Me doubt- ed if she ever should take a course in any Metitution of law that would con- fer upon her the degree of bachelor of law\.

However, aside from the pro - tensor's lecture\ MIR' Gould had Mas- tered every bit of hie new work, \Out- lines of Law.\ which the woman's class tree\ as a text hook .and had carefully reed during her term such standard works as Cooley'm \Constitutional Law.\ Levi's International haw,\ Had- ley's \Roman Law,\ Robinson', \Ele- mentary Law, - and Browne's \Domes- tic Relations.\ \Miss Helen Gould was one of the most lovely, sprinter, high-minded and lovable girls in the 'lees.\ maid one of the lean prominent member -Iv of the woman', Omar to the writer. \She was very eoriable and companlenehle with ell of um.

It is reprinted in different places, if 1 am not mistaken, and it reaches all parts of the kingdom, and its of the ut- most interest and value to the educated Chinese. It is merely a record of offi- cial acts, promotions, punishments, and decrees, but these are put forth with what seems to us amazing frankness, so that they have been of the utmost actual life in these documents have sup- plied at least one English author with the materials for a hand book and a series of novelettes upon the life of the masses. I have at hand a translation of the more important documents in the Ga- zette for 1893, and am going to cull from them sufficient to show how remark- able a mirror is that China holds up to herself. There is not space here to tell how frequently Li Hung Chang appears In its pages, or how, seven times in ten. he is seen to be handling public money. asking for public money, or recom- mending for office or promotion thus, rich citizens and prosperous officials who have given money for relief, re- ligion, or charity. When one knows his influence, and understands how little is done in Chinese official life except for money, it seems almost credible that he has amassed 81 5 0.000.000, as his critics say, writes jullan Ralph in Har- per's Weekly. As the representative on earth of the gods in heaven, the emperor is custo- dian of the weather. When droughts come, and pestilence or floods assail the people, he does not hesitate publicly to take the blame of them, attributing them to his own remissness In the wor- ship of the gods that rule such occur- rences. If he did not do so the people would not hesitate to charge him with the fault. They frequently memorial- ize the throne to that effect. We read that on Jan. 6 his majesty prayed for snow, but the much desired boon has not yet been granted. Two days later he announced that \we proposed to re- new our prayers on the 8th inst., but yesterday a heavy fall of snow was vouchsafed, for which we are humbly grateful. To -morrow we will burn in- cense in the Ta-kao-tien.\ The weather did not again call for activity on his part until July 23, when we land this statement from him: \Since the contmencement of the sum- mer refreshing showers gave great promise of an abundant harvest for the autumn. Unfortunately too much rain began to fall afterward, so that we went ourselves twice to the temple of the most high to offer incense and be- seech the protection of the supreme merciful one, praying that there may be a change of calm weather, in conse- quence of which « our prayers were answered. Recently, however, never ceasing rains have again arrived, and there are fears that they ell/ turn out to be a calamity.

HOWELLS • Writes ileramionally, but is Devoted le tier Palette anti Brush. - She limits more like the daughter ot an idealist than shit' does like the daugh- ter of a realist,\ said a gentleman the other day, speaking of Miss Howells. Miss Howells is the accepted type of the delicate spirituelle dreamer. You would know she is an artist to look at her. Therefore it does not surprise you to find that when she was a little girl of li or thereabouts, when other gira are making molasses candy and doll clothes, little Winifred was going about the picture galleries of Europe with her parents, who were then living abroad. and for recreation making pictures of the saints and angels of the old master- pieces as she remembered them after she got home each day. Afterward Mr. Howells wrote the text for a little book that reproduces these sketches and called it \A Little Girl Among the Old Masters.\ You can get it in the public libraries, and it has a real art interest for itself as a faithful setting forth of the influence of beauty and high spirit- ual significance upon the mind of a 1•1111‘1 MI88 wells is now a young MISS HOWELLS. lady in her \early twenties\ as to age, and a charming girl, beloved of her friends. She writes some, now and then a clever society skit, something in the vein of her father's one -act conieullet- tas, but her chief intetest in life is picture making. . She draws cleverly and her sensitive artistic temperament gives to her illuetrations—a branch of art to which thus far she has confined her ef- fortn—a dietinet character of their own. Some of her cousins, as the Walton beauty In high life, Miss Sally Fair- child, are fond of dress and society, but Mists Howells, while a jolly and agreeable friend to her circle of Inti- mate acquaintances, cares nothing at all for society of the \smart\ set. Her studio is a window seat, or any place where inspiration seizes her pencil. She frequently accompanies her father, but oftener upon some excursion into the slums, or to a dinner gotten up express- ly for them and a few friends in a Chi- nese reetaurant than to fashionable functions. Serious, mweet, sans aftec , Union, gifted; this is Miss Howells. LOVE FOR BOOKS. America Is by Tar the Greatest Itelbd Ing Nation on Earth.
