•ad In Storm—With Eaiy Adjustment It

Brromr* n Pleating Roane Dreee.

A dress made after the accompanying

description from tbe New York Herald

of a prize business dress for women

will be practical and feminine and never

decidedly out of fashion. For the street

the costume consists of a close fitting,

round waist, comfortably snug, to which

is hooked or buttoned a coat skirt. A

belt with bag to match conceals the


The skirt is round and short enough

for ease in walking and is slightly draped.

The skirt should be carefully shrunk be­

fore making and firmly stitched and

lined at the bottom. The sleeves should

be neither full nor tight, but loose

enough for comfort in moving and close

at the wrist. Under the bodice is worn

a pretty waist of silk or cambric, the

edges of the sleeves showing a little as

cuffs under the bodice sleeves. This al­

lows of great variety in costume, as

changes can be made, and women love

individuality in their dressing and will

not wear a uniform.

For the house the coat skirt may be re­

moved, the revers turned back all the

way to the belt to give more ease and

the belt readjusted.

For warm weather and more complete

negligee the bodice may be entirely re­

moved and the silk waist neatly belted


Direction* For Making This Very Oaefnl

Article at home.

A writing tablet which is handsome

enough to adorn any lady's desk is made

of heavy board, such as publishers use

for book covers, covered on both sides

with a plain, dull blue art linen, such as

comes for decorative purposes. The





Household gives directions for making it:

On one side a double strip of the linen is

overseamed to the tablet. This strip is

embroidered in white and has straps for

holding a pen handle, pencil and rubber,

while a tiny traveling inkstand has holes

made in the outer case, through which it

is sewed to the strip of linen.

Embroidered corners of the linen are

overseamed to the bottom of the tablet,

which, with the strip, serves to hold in

place the blotters, which are cut the size

of the tablet and slipped under.

A small ring, covered with dull blue

embroidery silk in buttonhole stitch,

serves to hold the ribbon to which the

penwiper is attached. This is made in

flower shape of chamois skin, cut in the

same size and placed one above another.

The two outer ones are painted yellow

to represent a cowslip, and the outer

edge of the petals and the center are


Dainty Perfumery Sachet*.

The Japanese silk handkerchiefs that

are so trifling iu size make dainty sa­

chets. The regulation white cotton stuf­

fing to hold the sachet powder in cut to

the size and in the shape of a square.

The handkerchief is folded so that the

two corners diagonally opposite meet,

| leaving two sides to be fastened together

' and a corner at the top and two points

at each of the two lower corners for bow

j decorations. Sew these sides with baby

j ribbon, threaded through a wide eye

1 darning needle, and the big stitches that

Helpful to the Houeewlfe.

An old flat file, although an apparent­

ly useless thing, can be made very help­

ful to the housewife by driving it in be-


down. There are no buttons to come un­

fastened, no pocket hole to gape in the

back, for the skirt fastens at the side, in

front, and has also two flat pockets in­

serted on the hips, with an up and down

opening concealed with a stitched flap.

In the silk lining of the coat skirts are

also deep, broad pockets for papers and

memoranda, but there 1B none on the

outside to disfigure the smooth lines. { give the decorative effect

Under the lapel is another little pocket,

and there are two more inside tbe bodice

on the bust. With a stamp and change

pocket in the sleeves, this makes eight

or nine in all, and tbe bag makes anoth­

er convenient receptacle, while the belt

also bos a little pocket made on it to

serve as a purse for small change. The

bag will hold the handkerchief, pencils,

notebook, silver knife, extra pair of

gloves, powder puff, tiny foldiug comb

and bonbouuiere. The watch may be

worn outside or in a breast pocket.

For rainy days a loop and a button are

arranged in the buck of the skirt to lift

it gracefully from the muddy streets.

The I MIIIM-.- revers fold over each other,

and a tiny hook holds them in place to

protect the chest from cold.

The material of this costume bhould he

of the best unshrinkable wool, such its

serge, bonsacking,Scotch tweed or chev­

iot or fine diagonal. It would be hand­

some made iu black, with revers faced iu

black moire, a blouse of green silk, dot­

ted with black, and a green lizard skin


A round black hat is suggested. A

turban or toque is always iu style, and

wings are more serviceable than plumes,

which come uncurled. An English walk­

but the matter of the choice of a hat

should be individual, as its first require-

Two Methods Veotllated hr a Mother Who

Tried the Wrong One.

The advent of a baby should not be

the signal for upsetting all the ordinary

rules of a house. The baby himself is

much happier and mnch more likely to

be healthy if from the beginning he is

brought up by method. During the first

month of his little life the youngling of

the human flock is often treated with

such indiscretion that it is very hard for

him and for his poor mother to get him

into good habits later.

"I fully intended." writes a young

matron in Harper's Bazar, "to bring

my little Duncan up well from the first

hour of his birth. And I would have

had very little trouble if Walter's moth­

er had not just then come from Scotland

to visit us. Duncan was her first grand­

child, and the adoring grandmother had

no patience with new fangled notions in

the nursery. 'I rocked my babies to

sleep,' she said stoutly. 'I never laid the

poor little things down in their cribs and

expected them to go to sleep. Tea, and

I carried them when they cried. Many's

the time, Margie, that I've carried your

husband up and down the floor for two

hours without stopping. He was a great

heavy fellow too. I would drop down

utterly worn out at last

•• 'Nurse the baby by the clock? No,

my dear. I believe in nursing a baby

when he's hungry—little and^ften is my

way. A baby will never be a baby again.

Let him be loved and petted while he can.'

So the grandmother argued, and so, be­

ing a resolute person, buxom and strong

of back as of will, she had her way. Dun­

can became, bless his heart, the tyrant

and the despot a baby does when he has

his own way. We were abject slaves,

and Duncan ruled us with a rod of iron.

Poor little man! He had the colic per­

petually. He woke up a dozen times

every night. When he slept, it seemed as

if we must hush our very breathing, lest

it should disturb him.

"My neighbor, a positive little lady,

with no relations to interfere in fond

foolishness, brought up her wee Johnnie

according to method. She nursed him

by the clock. Therefore she could leave

the house for a certain length of time,

knowing that he would not suffer for

food while she was gone. He was the

sweetest baby—never sour or disagree­

able from repletion.

"She never allowed him to be wakened

that visitors might look at him, and she

didn't let people kiss him if she could

help it. As for carrying the baby, that

was absolutely forbidden. He was put

into his cradle wide awake, warm and

comfortable, and was left in a darkened

room to go to sleep.

"There* is no telling how the boys will

turn out when they are old enough to go

to school, but Johnnie is far less trou­

ble than Duncan. Not that I would ex­

change babies, though!"


Doctor—Well, little girl, do you

remember your pellets every hour?

Little girl-Yes! Doctor-Did they

taste very badly ? Little girl—I don't

know. You see Fido can't talk.

A Field For Trained Kuract.

It has been suggested by tbe London

Lancet that trained nurses be employed

on the ocean steamers as stewardesses.

Any one who has experienced the com­

fort of having trained hands "handle

them" When "too ill to raise the head"

will hope that the suggestion is carried

out. While the class of stewardesses are,

as a rule, kindly, agreeable women, will­

ing to make us comfortable if possible,

the trained nurse in such a place must

excel them iu knowing just "how to do"

and "what to do" for those who perhaps

are somethiug more than seasick.

The death of a beautiful little girl

from pneumonia on au ocean fcteainshir.

a party of passengers, "Would not a

trained nurse have done differently and

perhaps saved the lioOie life?" Nursing

Messrs. Croker, Sheehun and others

are much dissatisfied witli the course

of Hon. Hamilton Fish at Albany, but

with the Chamber of Commerce, of

New York, and the Home Rule club,

of Buffalo, at his back, he seems likely

to be instrumental in putting some

very good laws on the statute books.

Credit Tom Reed with having a biff

heart, whatever his faults. Invited

by the Hamilton club of Chicago to

be its guest at the annual banquet he

suggested that the club abandon the

feast and donate the money it would

cost to the relief of the j>oor of the

the club.

Buffalo Bills Belayed.

The unaccountable action of three

Republican Assemblymen Tuesday

afternoon prevented a favorable

report on the bill introduced for the

restoration of the rights of the citizens

of Buffalo. The occasion wan the

regular meeting of the Assembly Cities

Committee at Albany.

The Sheehan men fought for delay,

tenaciously, and managed to persuade

the Assembly Committee on Cities to

grant them another hearing on

January 25. This decision was made

against the strong protest of five of

the eight Republican members of the

Committee on Cities. These five

tnembers were Mr. Fish, of Putnam;

Mr. Thornton, of Orange; Mr.

O'Grady, of Rochester; Mr. Whlttet,

of Buffalo, and Mr. Hurt is, of

Brooklyn. There were three Republican

members of the committee:

Sheffield, of New York; Wells, of

Onondaga, and Taylor, of Brooklyn,

who voted with the three Democratic

Assemblymen; Keenan, of Renssaelaer;

Davidson, of New York, and Coughlin,

of Erie, to give the Sheehan Democrats

another hearing on the bill.

Mr. Sheffield afterward said: "I

favor the repeal bills, but I thought

it would be politic to give the Sheehan

men a hearing in order that they

might not complain that they were

not treated fairly." Mr. Sheffield,

however, made a mistake. William F.

Sheehan should not receive any favors

from a Republican member of the

Legislature. As for the action of Mr.

Taylor, of Brooklyn, and Mr. Wells, of

Syracuse, in voting with the Democrats,

it can only be said that their

party associates are amazed by their

conduct Their future course as

members of the Assembly Committee

on Cities will be observed keenly.

Assemblyman Ryder Gets Mad.

[From the Tribune Wednesday morning-.]

During the session of the Assembly,

Charles Marrin, a Tammany Hall

member from New York City, objected

to Speaker Malby's reference of one

of the bills which Mr. Marrin introduced

last night The bill authorizes

the expenditure of #8,500,000 by the

city of New York to construct new

school houses. Inasmuch as the bill,

if it becomes a law, will take money

out of the city treasury, Speaker

Malby sent the bill to the Cities Committee.

Mr. Marrin wanted it to go

to the Committee on Public Education,

and when the Speaker refused to

make the change, he moved to send

the bill to that committee. Hamilton

Fish supported the reference of the

measure to the Cities Committee, and

declared that it had been the custom

to send all such bills to that committee.

The Assembly, by an overwhelming

vote, sustained Mr. Fish and the

ruling of the Speaker. After the

announcement of the result, Assemblyman

Ryder, of Westchester county,

who is rapidly developing into a

perfect jack-in-the.box, shot out of

his seat and piped:

"Mr. Speaker, I want to know if the

Cities Committee is the only committee

in the Assembly in which the Speaker

lias confidence':"

"The Chair will be pleased to

answer the question in any other

place than this," was the reply.

New Police Board for New York,

To New Yorkers the most important

measure thus far introduced in the

Assembly is the Police Board Bill.

The object Is to hold somebody responsible

for the city police department.

As at present constituted the

board is made up of three members

and when anything goes wrong it is

altogether too easy to shift responsibility

from one to another. Hon.

Thomas C. Piatt thinks the city

evidence brought out was that one

Saxon who runs the Lewis farm had

several notes discounted by Badt

which were Anally wiped out by one

note for the amount involved in the

suit. An investigation showed the

endorsement on this last note to be a

forgery. Then to juukeuuieiidsSuxon

Brewster can boast of two as finely

furnished and equipped lodgerooms

as can be found in any village of its

pi.j.idation in tiie country. A few

years ago the Masonic bodies of Cro-

t on L. .dge concluded that the room in

Miller's building was too small and in­

convenient to meet the demands of a

constantly increasing membership.

More commodious quarters were

expressly provided on the upper floor

of Ryder Bros.' building. The suite

consists of banquet, assembly, and

ante-rooms, very conveniently ar­

ranged, and luxuriously furnished

with inoquet and Brussels carpet and

raise, Kent 10 cents; Putnam Valley,

town 80 cents.

The exceedingly high rate in South­

east as compared with other towns,

Is due to the fact that the contract

system of working the highways

imposes a tax of $7,000. This is an

Item which does not appear in any

other town budget and this Year it is

further inoreased to $8,050,! by the

the entire


amount to be raised-

A Vllluge lteud District*

The matter of highway taxes is

especially important to the ta (.-payers

In the village of Brewster. Nearly

one-hall of the assessed value of the

township is included within the pro­

posed boundary lines of the village.

Village property must therefore pay

one-half of the total sum expended for

roads aud bridges lost year, namely:


By incorporating the village, thus

creating a separate road district, the

village taxpayers cannot be denied

the privilege of expending all the

money raised on the village high ways.

Under the present system, it appears,

all the money may be expended on

outside roads while the village people

are left to care for themselves.

Keeley Care Competition.

Edeon Scribncr and Oscar Arnold

joined the Brewster forces at the

Orange, N. J., Keeley Institute last

week. The large number of patients

sent from Brewster to Orange attrac­

ted the attention of Manager Brown,

of the White Plains Keeley Cure. He

arrived in Brewster yesterday at 8:18

a m., and immediately set about to

interview Edwin T. Taylor, Willis

Roscoe and Isaac Dykeman, who were

booked for Orange by F. C.

Wadsworth. The club-rate for treat­

ment at Orange is $100 cash in

advance. Hitherto the Brewster

patients have been admitted at that

rate. The White Plains manager of­

fered to put the trio through his

institution on the half-oosh-half-

note plan—the $50 cash to be paid

In advance and the note to

be paid within one year. On these

terms the patients were booked for

White Plains. Then Brown left town.

Along toward evening Mr. Wadsworth

returned fgom a piano collection trip

through the country and heard what

Brown had done. He immediately

cut the price to $85 and at that figure

Messrs. Taylor, Roscoe and Dykeman

will start for Orange to-morrow mor­


We hope that the apparent juggling

in prices will not deter anyone who

has made up his mind to

turn his back on rum-drinking.

A course at one cure or the other will

certainly prove beneficial. Brewster

A Mixed Ale Reception.

On Saturday evening there occurred

at Mackerelville, Titicus Dam district,

one of the most brilliant and tony

gatherings that was ever known in

that locality. It was a mixed ale

reception given to the 400 of that

place by Mr. Ward McAllister Haldaue,

who received the guests with his

usual hospitality and politeness assist­

ed by the gentlemanly reception com­

mittee, Mujor Cloak and Mr. John

Cummings. Mayor James Drummond

acted as floor manager and was laid up

from over exertion but has since re­

covered his usual good health. The

music was furnished by Prof. George

Maynard's orchestra and gave great

satisfaction. The liquid refreshments

were furnished by Casey, of Croton

Falls. The costumes worn by the

guests were in good taste and each of

them also carried an elegant jag which

added very much to the enjoyment

of the occasion. The decorations were

beautiful. Garret Monihan was award­

ed first prize for those worn by him.

Among the guests from out of town

were Mr. McCarthy, of Purdy's, and

Mr. Sweeney, of Brewster, who were

much admired for their good behavior

and fine jags. They enjoyed the

hospitality of Muckerelville over

Sunday. Invitations were sent to

parties in Peach Lake and Towners

but previous engagements prevented

their presence. Many regrets were

also expressed upou the absence of

John It Super, Corporation Counsel

of Mackerelville.

It is stated that another mixed ale

frolic will be given on i«iy night by

Mr. Ward McAllister Haldaue and an

enjoyable time is promised to all the

society people who receive invitations.

Uiglmiiy Itobhery at Muhohac.

Put nam county is not often afflicted

with genuine highway robberies. The

Mahopac correspondent of the Dau­

bury News, however, tells a story of

that kind concerning Jacob Tomp­

kins, a well-to-do farmer, of Soiuers

Centre, who was assaulted and robbed

on Saturday night last by Jerry O'Neil

and John A. Lark. Tompkins came

to the Lake to collect some money

from Geo. C. Agor, the butcher.

o'.Neil was in the market when Agor

paid Thompkins some forty dollars.

After Tompkins had received the

money he went into one of the hotels

and according to his story at the ex­

amination, became intoxicated, where­

upon O'.Neil struck him and threw

sand in his eyes and then robbed him.

Lark was along and received some of

the money that was stolen. As soon

as be could Tompkins told of the rob­

bery and Officer Chadwick succeeded

in capturing young Lark but O'Neil

had boarded the milk train and

escaped. Telegrams were sent to the

conductor of the train aud O'Neil was

arrested at liigh Bridge and brought

back to the Lake next day, when he

had a hearing. Lark and O'Neil are

now locked in the Carmel jail to await

the action of the grand jury at the

February term of court. O'Neil is a

bad character having been in several

scrapes before.

After serving sixty days in the coun­

ty jail a* a penalty for drunkeunuss

and disorderly conduct, Mrs. Libbie

Waldron returned to Brewster and

indulged in another spree. fcJhe was

Daring five or six yean Marcel lind

worked at that famous painting which

he affirmed should represent the cross­

ing of the Red aea, and for fire or six

years this masterpiece of color had been

obstinately refused by the jury at the

annual salon.

So, from force of habit in going and

coming so often from the studio to the

mnseo and from the nuisoe to the

studio, the picture knew the road so

well that, if one had set it on wheels, it

would have been able to go all alone to

the Louvre.

Marcel, who had ten times repainted

and rearranged this canvas from top to

bottom, attributed to a personal hostil­

ity of the members of tbo jury against

himself the ostracism which rejected

it annually from the .Square salon,

and in his idle moments he had com­

posed in honor of the Cerbernses of the

institute a little dictionary of curses

with some illustrations of a savage fe­

rocity. This collection, which had be­

come celebrated, had obtained in the

studios and at the School cf the Fine

Arts the popular success which is at­

tached to the immortal complaint of

Jean Belin, painter in ordinary to the

grand sultan of Turkey. All the daub­

ers of Paris had a copy of it in their


For a long time Marcel was not dis­

couraged by the determined rejections

which he received at each annual ex­

hibition. He was comfortably settled

in the opinion that his picture was, in

its least proportions, the long sought

for pendant to the "Marriage FeaBt at

Cnna," that gigantic masterpiece whose

brilliant splendor the dust of three cen­

turies has not been able to tarnish. So,

over}' year at tho epoch of the salon,

Murcel sent his picture to be examined

by the jury. Only—in order to throw

the examiners off the semt and to try

to buffio them in their preconceived de­

termination to exclude it, which preju­

dice they seemed to have against the

"Crossing of tho Red Sea"—without I

changing anything in the general com­

position of the painting, lie modified

certain details and changed the titlo of

bis picture. Thus, one year it cuino

before the jury under the name of "Tbo

Crossing of tbo Rubicon." But Pbu-

raoh, badly disguised under Ciesnr's

mantle, was instantly recognized and re­

jected with all tho honors duo him.

The following year Marcel threw

upon tho foreground of his canvas a lay­

er of white paint to represent auow,

planted a tree in one corner, and dress­

ing up an Egyptian in the uuifonu of

the imperialI "iiard of Franco ho bap­

tise bis pici,..u "Tbe Crossing of tbo

Beri.oiuu." The jury, which bad rub­

bed up its spectacles that day upon the

tails of its green palmed coats—ou

official occasions tho members of the

institute wear dress coats having green

palms embroidered ou the lupels and

collars—was not duped by this new

ruse. It recognized perfectly tho obsti-1

nate canvas, especially by a big devil

of u man}' colored horno that pranced

about on top of u wuvo of tbo Red sea.

The dressing of this hoiso served Mar­

cel for all his experiments in coloring,

and in his everyday speech he called it

"a synoptical tableau of flue tones," be­

cause it reproduced all tbo most varied

combiuutious of color with their plays

of light and shade. But once more,

unmoved by this fine detail, tho jury

hud not black bulls enough to fully ex­

press their feelings in rejecting "The

Crossing of the Beresiua."

"Very well,"saidMarcel, "I'll wait!

Next year I shall send it again under

the title of the * Passage des Panora­

mas.' "

A few days later, and when Macrel

had already forgotten terrible threats

of vengeance he had uttered against his

persecutors, he received a visit from

Father Medicis. Thus tho bohemiaus

had nicknamed a Jew named Solomon,

wbo at that epoch was well known to

all members of artistic and literary Bo­

hemia, with whom be was in perpetual

relations. Pero Medicis did business

in all sorts of bric-a-brac. He sold com­

plete sets of furniture at from 12 francs

up to 3. oiiu. He bought everything and

knew how to sell it again at a profit.

The exchange bank of M. Proudbon

was a very little affair compared to the

system applied by Medicis, who pos­

sessed the genius of traffic to a degree

never before attained by even the most

• ble of his fellow believers. His shop,

which was situated in the Place du

Carrousel, was a fairyland where one

found everything to be desired. All

the products of nature, all the creations

of art, all that comes forth from tho

bowels of the earth audol genius, Med­

icis made of it an object of negotiation.

His business touched everything, ab­

solutely everything that exists; he

dealt even in tho ideal. Medicis bought

ideas in order to exploit them himself

or to sell them again. Known to all

the litterateurs and all the artists, an

intimate of the palette and a familiar

friend of tbo writing desk, he was the

Asmodeus of the art. He would sell

you M>jne cigars for the plot of a uovei,

borne slippers for a sonnet, some fresh

fish for paradoxes; he chatted "by the

hour" with writers whose business it

was to relate in the newspapers the

scandal of society; he would procure

you places in the galleries of tbo house

of parliament and invitations to private

suiruejj be lodged by the night, the

week or the month the wandering daub­

er* wbo paid him in copies of the works

of FJavius Juscpbus.

Tho entrance of Modicis was therefore

greeted with a joj'ons chorns, for they

know that tho Jew was too miserly of

his time to spend it in visits of mere

politeness. Therefore his presence al­

ways announced an atTnir ot business.

,% M. Marcel," said Medicis, "I have

como hero solely to make your fortune.

That is to say, I've come to offer you a

superb chance to enter the artistic

world. Art, an you well know, M.

Marcel, is an arid road of which glory

is the oasis."

"Pero Medicis," said Marcel, on the

hot coals of impatience, "in the name

of 50 per cent, you venerated patron

saint, bo brief!"

•'This is the affair," said Medicis.

"A wealthy lover of paintings who is

making a collection of pictures destined

to make tho tour of Europe baa order­

ed me to proenre for him a series of re­

markable works. I have come to offer

you an entrance into that gallery of

art. In a word, I have come to buy

your 'Crossing of tho Red Sea.' "

"Cash?" said Marcel.

"Cash," responded tbo Jew. making

the orchestra in his breeches pocket

play a lively tune.

"Goon, Medicis," said Marcel, dis­

playing his painting. "I wish to leave

to yourself the honor of fixing the price

of this work, which is beyond all


The Jew placed on the table 50

crowns in beautiful new silver pieces.

"Go on," said Marcel; "that iaonly

the advance guard."

"M. Marcel," said Medicis, "you

well know I shall add nothing. Reflect!

Fifty crowns. That makes 150 trance.

That's a sum, that is!"

"A feeble sum," replied the artist.

"Why, know that my first word is al­

ways my last, merely in the robe of my

Pharaoh there are 50 crowns' worth of

cobalt. Pay me at least the material.

Equalize those piles, round up the fig­

ures, and I will call you Leo X."

"Here's my last word," said tbo

Jew. "I'll not add a sou more, but I

offer a diuner to all of you, various

wines at your own discretion, and at

tbe dessert I'll pay in gold."

"Does any gentleman wish to make

any further bid?" yelled Colline, rap­

ping three times with IIIK li-i on tbo

table. "Going, going, gone!"

"Agreed," said Marcel.

"I will send for the picture tomor­

row," said tbo Jew. "Now let us

start, gentlemen> the table is laid."

Tbo four friends descended the stairs,

singing tins chorus from "Lea Hugue­

nots." "A table, a table!"

Eight days after that feast Marcel

learned in what gallery his picture had

taken its place. While walking through

the Faubourg Saint Honoro he stopped

in the midst of a group that was gaz­

ing with curiosity at tbe banging of a

sign over a shop. That sign was none

otber thun Marcel's famous picture,

sold by Medicis to a dealer in provi­

sions. Only, the "Crossing ot the Red

Sea" had once more suffered a modifi­

cation and bore a new title. Some oue

had added to it a steamboat and had

called it, "At tbo Port of Marseilles."

A flattering ovation arose among tbo

loungers when they discovered the

painting. So Marcel turned away, de­

lighted by this triumph, and murmur­

ed," Tbe voice of tbe people is the voice

of God!"—Boston Trauseript.

owed much of his success in life to a

been instilled into his nuture by the

teachings of a wise mother. His first

start in his profession came through an

old scrubwomuu wbo was employed

about the bouee where he boarded when

a young man. One morning ho paused

out as she was scrubbing tbe front

usual. Shu stopped him. 'They tell

me ye are a lawyer,' she said. 'Yes.'

Boaualng Chinese Tribes.

In the plains on the western borders

of the Chinese empire, in the very

heart of Asia, there live roaming tribes

who seldom visit towns, except it may

be in tbe way of trade. They dwell in

tents which they pitch wherever they

may happen for the moment to be wan­

dering or working. The tent used by

iouie of the roving Mongolian folk is

made of lelt and is usually low, small

! jnd pointed toward the top. Tne wood-

j en door frame is no higher than half a

j window frame in our houses, but the

read these lines, it is a fact neverthe­

less that there is an island in the gulf

of California, not more than 00 miles

from tbe Mexican mainland,, which is

inhabited by the remnants of a race of

giant cannibals. This startling discov­

on the island, that individual, although

Boat Who Died to Avenge Their Fathers.

The Fortj-nrrrn Bonlns.

No crusader of the west, no viking

of the north, cherished a higher ideal

of loyalty and (chivalry than the clans­

men of old Japan; no Corsican more

ruthlessly handed down a feud from

generation to generation or exacted from

von and brother the execution of a

sterner vendetta. The Satsuma men of

today triumph in tbe fact that their

own swords have avenged in this gen­

eration tbe defeat inflicted on their fore­

fathers in the year 1,000 by the Todu-

gawa clan.

Legend and drama recount every day

to eager ears the stories of sons who

died to avenge their fathers, clansmen

that they might slay tbe foeraen who

had caused tbe death of their lord. The

favorite heroes, who bold in popular

estimation the place assigned by us to

Robin Hood and bis men, are the 47 rob­

ins, a name given to men who have

lost their clanship.

Their lord waa obliged to commit

hara kiri, or judicial suicide, for hav­

ing within royal precincts drawn his

sword on a noble who had insulted him,

and these stanch vassals devoted them­

selves to tbe destruction of tbo insult-

er, knowing assuredly that, having slain

him, tbey would be equally condemned

to take their own lives.

Still may be seen fresh incense sticks

burning before the graves of their lead­

er and his young son and visiting cards

stuck into tbe little tablets above them

as tokens of the respect in which they

are held by those who know their story

The Rev. Mr. Adams of Leominster

was an eccentric character and had

no hesitation in speaking his mind, ei­

ther to congregation or to individuals.

Ho was about to exchange with a neigh­

boring minister, a mild and inoffensive

num. who knew the bluutness of his

disposition and said to him in advance:

"You will find some panes of glass

broken in tne pulpit window, and pos­

sibly you may suffer from the cold.

Tbe cushion, too, is in bad condition,

but I beg of you not to say anyt hing to

my people about it. They are poor and

disinclined to think of repairs."

Beiuovlng Ciaas Stoppers.

Sometimes it is very difficult to re­

move a glass stopper from a bottle. A

cloth wet in, hot water generally is

sufficient, but if this fails,, remember

the principle is to expand the neck of

the bottle by beat and not the stopper.

With hot water the latter is often heat­

ed equally with the neck, and thus tbe

desired effect is not produced. By hold­

ing the neck of the bottle about half an

inch above the flame of a Lamp or can­

dle, however, in a few seconds the most

obstinate cork will generally come out.

Care must be taken to tura tbe bottle-

rapidly and not allow tu* flames. to>

touch the glass, as it might crack it

When the glass k thoroughly heated,, a

steady pull and twist will almost al­

ways bring out the stopper.—Exchange.

Spoiled It All.

A farmer went to hear John Wesley

preach. Wesley said he would take up

three topics of thought He was talking

chiefly about money. His first waa,

"Get all you can." The farmer nudged

B neighbor and said: "This is strange,

preaching. I never heard the like be­

fore. This is very good." Then Wesley

discoursed on "Industry," "Activity,**

"Living to Purpose," and reached hia

second division, "Save ail yon can."

The farmer became mora excited. "Was

there ever anything like this?" he said.

Wesley denounced thriftlessness and

waste, and he satirised the willful wick­

edness which lavishes in luxury, and tho

farmer rubbed bis hands, and he t h ongh t,

"All this I have been taught from my

youth up," and what with getting, and

what with hoarding, it seemed to him

that "salvation" had come to his house.

But Wesley advanced to his third head,

which was, "Give all you can." "Ah,

deart ah, dear," said the farmer, "he has

gone and spoiled it all."—Ram's Horn.

A Queer Freak of Memory.

Then she came to England and began

to speak English.

When about 20 years of age, she mar­

ried an American gentleman, and from

that time for about 20 years she lived

sometimes in America, sometimes in

England, speaking English habitually

and French scarcely ever.

When Or. Radcliffe saw her, her mind

was feeble, and that was all, but about

two years afterward he found she had

forgotten everything connected with

her married life, ber English not ex­

cepted, and if asked who she waa and

where she was she gave her maiden

name and mentioned the street where

she had lived in Paris when a girl.—

of the mill owners.

Interposed Mr. Boutelle sarcastically—"to

VI am- not here voting money into the

Johnson emphatically amid applause.

"Your patriotism has an element of lruprnbability

about? it," retorted Mr. Boutelle.

In further reply to Mr. Springer, Mr.

Johnson stated that his mill was not more

favorably situated than others and that it

wan in about the center of steel rail production.

Mr. Tarsuey, one of the Democratic members

of-, the ways and means committee,

wnnted to know, if the existing duty was

reduced from tl8 to about IS per ton when

railroad construction revived, if be did not

think it would produce revenue.

Mr.-Johnson replied that he did not

present close margins, almost prohibitive.

Mr. Stone of Pennsylvania.

"No," replied Mr. Johnson. "They would

Mr. Cannon of Illinois asked if Mr. Johni

sou thought that it was quite fair, knowing

as he did that his attempt to put rails

- on the free list would be unsuccessful, to

get the benefit of a display of philautbropy

and continue afterward to pocket the proceeds

Mr. Johnson met the question by asking

if Mr. Cannon would vote with him. To

this there was no reply.

Mr. Dalzell, the Republican representa-

-tive from the Pittsburg district, then got

the floor and proceeded to attack Mr. Jobn-
