Women's Penny Paper (Newspaper) - January 5, 1889, London, Middlesex S PENNY PAPER The only Paper in the World Printed and Published by JANUARY Price One MARGARET LADY L MARGARET Lady Sandhurst was a Miss and was reared among She very early bpgan to take an interest in and by the time she was twenty had formed her own opinions and found it impossible to agree with those about her The last Lord Sandhurst was an advanced so that during his life she found sufficient interest in seconding iiis This is a point ot considerable interest to those who wish cO ee her on the County Coun as twenty years spent in the very of administrative govern at home and is indeed n dn cation for an intelligent woman who takes an interest of her cv i in Lady Sandhurst takes politics from the highest point f and according to the true meaning of the As she repeatedly stated during the last two years she looks upon fiot as a matter for party but as the science of the wellbeJng and the jiappmess of a nation The great opportunities she has had 6f studying practical politics and hearing them discussed 11 ho men who administered are great value in the rk she has now taken In the beginning of the year 1887 asked her to found a Womens Liberal Association in Marylebpe She had read in the papers about the Womens tut hardy believed in This made her loo n to the and finding it was worth doing she carried Tfhe Marylebone Women s Liberal Association owes its existex in a large measure to Lady and has elected her its President a post which she is peculiarly fitted owing to her and courage From that dates her public Lady Sandhurst is the friend of the helpless and the poor if she becomes a member of the County Council she is anxious to be on tiie Committees which will look after hospitals and also slaughter as she justly more cruelty is practised than is With regard to hospitals she holds the strongest views as to the practice experimenting on the She thisan outrage incon sistent with and which should be opposed most Lady Sandhurst has more c ami to speak on this subject than most since she has a une for socalled incurable where the doctors incurables are With regard to lunatic which will come immediately under the attention of the County she is of opinion that there will be found to be many necessary In this she does not speak without having been over Hanwell and Colney Hatch more than She expresses a strong hope that prisons will come under the supervision of the County and when they are she will endeavour to be on the first committee that as she there is a great to be done in that Although Lady Sandhurst takes no public part at present in public work for Social Purity her views on this subject are well When asked whether she is a supporter of this she answers I believe in the She gives her warmest approval to the White Cross Army and she is one of those who consider there is only one standard of morality for men and As she justly it is the lack of social purity which is at the root of Englands decadence one sees the result of it in the the lunatic the and in the She considers also that drunkenness has much to answer for though she hopes the Liberals will succeed in getting the public houses under the County she is not a believing that all Gods gifts are intended for our In connection with the subject of social Lady Sandhurst thinks it a good thing for men and women to work and accustomed to doing She emphasizes the of political and the necessity for those who take it up of leaving oehind all Education has taken of women to a great extent is her It is good to hear this said by so practical a for the education of women is increasing every and with it comes the great hope of the intelligent influence of women on the Lady Sandhurst is of impressive with a peculiar dignity of her which is not aided by any exterior She is very as may be seen by a at her study table which is covered with but evidently all in Any one accustomed to the look of a business table can tell at a glance whether order or confusion reigns there and certainly it is the former in this When she begins to talk her special for public work is shown at for her voice is an incalculable advantage for a and she has a gift for expressing herself in forcible and telling It is no wonder that she is and that the Brixton Liberal Association are so enthusiastic in their support of Not only are her views Liberal in the best but she is one of those who will make herself heard and It has been incorrectly reported that Lady Sandhursts expenses in standing for Brixton are being paid Brixton Liberal This is not as all that is required in the way of paying expenses for the lady candidates is undertaken by the Society for Promoting the Return of Women as County Lady Sandhurst herself could scarcely be expected to pay the considering how much she is hampered by the cost of her many philanthropic Her home for crippled or Incurable children in Marylebone Road is in itself a heavy It is not generally that LadySandhurst not only bears the pecuniary expense of this most merciful but that she is herself the healer and gives her physical strength to the work She is one of those gifted with the power of magnetic which she uses generously for the aid of the poor and helpless She has had extraordinary success with some cases despaired of by the so that to call her hospital one for Incurables is something of a She never despairs of giving relief to the greatest sufferer by the use of her own vital energy and the same belief in the Bible and a merciful which gives her the courage to look on politics as a great missionary gives her also the power to help those whom the men of knowledge only cast aside as It will be seen at once that Lady Sandhursts is a busy life with many claims on it but it is a fact that it is the people who already do a great deal of work who are not afraid of Lady Sandhurst does not regard two or three committee meetings in the morning every week as any serious tax Lady Sandhurst has written two elementary called Conversations on Political Principles which are published by the Liberal These are intended to enlighten the ignorant upon the first principles of politics in the lofty sense in which she uses the They will be found of great use by those and their name is legion who are only just beginning to take an interest in the subject apart from the question of Liberal and It is of import ance that women who are in this position should be led to look on the question from the highest standpoint which these Conversa tions will lead them to ;
