LAD'Y MINING   AS8AYKR
In a remote hamlet in a California
mountain mining district lives Mrs.
. Jessie Frouzer, a woman who docs
all the ore assaying for the surround
ingdistrict. She is the only as=-ayer
for a wide mining country, and frequently by stage, wagon or on hoi-c-
T.ack arc brought samples of ore Jollier to test cliom'eally and prohounco
as to the value' Ihceof.
There are not many women' as-
sayers. of metals in the world, and
Mrs._ Frou7.er is busy, likewise hap-
py, in her chosen work. She is a
widow, formerly of Los Angeles. Tier
health is poor and she went to the
mountains that it mi slit be Voncfittcd
Among mines and miners she became
interested in.ores, so much so that
she wished to know bow to estimate
their value. . Through a correspondence school she learned to be an expert assayer, then started a"laboratory and op.Ted an office .it the little mining, settlement of Shepherd's
Canyon- '. Sho lias made as high as
forty assays in one day.

'One ol the strangest careers .ever
achieved hy a woman in America war
that of Kate Maher, who lived her
life-as- a man because -she longed for
freedom and rebelled with all her
soul against the .shackles that hold
the  reminine  sex back  from liberty.
Her father was a wagoner on the
wi-sicrn frontier in the days when
freight was hauled by teams because
there were no railroads. He died
when she was very young-. As a
woman sho tried life as a schoolteacher, a hotel waiter and a house ser
vant. She ,did not like, it in any of
those shapes, and she broke away
from it all and '.out into..liberty. She
cuf her hair short, put on a suit of
man's clothes.and to0k a man's name
As a man . she was. a cowboy, a
miner, and she HI. fed even this rough
prospecto;*, a stn_a;e driver ai��l a-

An   amusing  incident   occurred      in  one   of our      rural .churches   a short  time ago, says Tit-Rits.

The reg-  c;-  ular  .'monitor being absent,' tho duty  devolved  upon  a good  old deacon,  who c'oi-iimcncpd,  "I   love  to  steal,"  and   ihen   broke  down.   Raising     his  voice  a iitile  higher,   he   then   sang,  "I   love  to 'steal."   At length,  after  a des-'crabe     cough, he  made  a'final  dcinonsttMioii.  and  roared  out,   "T  love  to steal."  The effect  was     too  much.   lOvcryonc  _.ut the parson was  lniiehing.    lie  rose,  and   with      the  utmost coolness  said:   "Seeing     our  brother's   propensities,  let us pray."  ��������� o   NOTABLE    WOMEN.
