Defiance County Republican Express (Newspaper) - August 1, 1895, Defiance, Ohio T chapter continued a it is curious a said mrs. La estrange is if to herself. A i never thought Clifford Marsden would tie himself to any woman unless for a Large Money bribe. He knows exactly How you Are situated and i think the better of him he must love you very much a a the says he does i believe he does said Nora sitting Down on her Footstool again and clasping her hands round her knee in a thoughtful pose. A in fact i am half frightened at the idea of his caring so much about me though this is weak and silly. I never thought the Squire could to so intensely in Earnest about anything. I feel somehow to blame for. Helen i am not one bit in love with him. I told him so and he said he knew a my dear child you do not know whether you Are or not Clifford Marsden in a Man who might teach any woman to love him and Why should he not win you. Ile shows that he is sincerely disinterest edly attached to you. I must say i am entirely on his a Are you a said Nora dreamily. I suppose she sighed. A it is a marriage that would have Given your father the keenest pleasure. Was silent. A did you then reject him ? asked mrs. La estrange. A the would not accept rejection said Nora with a grave smile. A the said i must hear him that i must marry him he seemed rather angry and excited but we parted Good friends. I promised to think of All he had said and to speak to you who would be his Friend he was sure. I am astonished he should care for pie so much he has seen such quantities of charming Beautiful people but he does of Helen. He is wonderfully fond of me i could hear it in his voice. I am Verj ungrateful i wish he was not. I am afraid even if i were to marry him a would be disappointed to find i could not love him enough. It is i mean it must be so wretched not to receive As much As one a my dear you cannot fail to love him heartily you Are perfectly heart whole and yours is a kindly nature not Likely to Harden itself against the tenderness of a True a no perhaps not. I wish i did love him. How Happy and Light hearted i should be now i am Uncertain and miserable. I Ara so impatient Helen i can not rest if i am unhappy. I must get Light and Freedom or i should beat myself to pieces against my prison bars you Are Ever so much braver and a you have never come in Contact with a real necessity Nora. You can not conceive How inexorably submission is forced upon one there was a Short pause. A i should be glad i confess a resumed mrs. La estrange a to see you Well and happily married. You would i am sure be always a kind sister to my poor Little Bea As to myself it is not impossible that i May a she stopped. A certainly not Why should you not a put in Nora eagerly. A you Are Young Aud fair enough to marry some Good delightful person a a my dear Nora a interrupting in her turn. A what can have suggested so absurd an idea i was about to touch on a very different topic but i will not now. Tell me did or. Marsden say he would 2ome again a a a yes no. I am not sure what he said. But i think he will most a Well we can say no More at present. I will go and change my dress. I Trust you will be Wise and not reject such an offer for a a i Only want to do what is right a cried Nora standing up and letting her clasped hands fall to the length of her arms. A i do wish i loved Clifford As he deserves me to love him but it is very Odds i done to think i like him As Well As i did yesterday. I used to be quite glad to see Lime and now i rather dread his a that is natural enough Nora. There will be a Little awkwardness in meeting him at first. I do not quite understand your indifference to so very attractive a Man As Clifford Marsden Tell me you know i would not intrude on your Confidence i Only ask because you Are dear to me As my own sister have you any preference for some one else to steel your heart a a Why who has Ever made love to me a cried Nora indignantly colouring Crimson As she spoke a and am i the sort of girl to bestow my heart or fancy when neither Are sought a a Pardon me a said mrs. La estrange smiling a the heart even in the strongest minded Young ladies is strangely illogical and a Well i really am not very silly. Now i have kept you too Long perhaps your dress is Damp and you know you must not be a i know it but i have been under cover All she took up her cloak and was leaving the room when Nora exclaimed a How selfish i am i quite forgot to Tell you i had a few lines from lady Dorrington. She says mrs. Ruthven is seriously ill with fever nervous fever and they Are quite uneasy about a indeed i am sorry very sorry. I never liked mrs. Ruthven As Well As you do but i think she looked dreadfully worried of a did you do you think she was very much taken with the Squire a a ooh i done to imagine she cares seriously for any one she likes the most distinguished Man present a returned mrs. La estrange. A i should be so sorry to interfere with her. It must be dreadful to be Cut out if you Are really fond of any a do not distress yourself on that score i fancy or. Marsden a flirtation with mrs. Ruthven was of the very lightest order. Did you answer lady Dorrington letter a a yes at once and begged her to let us know How the patient was going mrs. La estrange was fascinated by the idea of Nora a marriage with Marsden. She had always liked him and living out of the world had never heard the various reports respecting his wild extravagance his generally reckless life. Even if she had she would like a simple Good woman have fully believed in the Power of a pure attachment to elevate and Reform the most determined Rake. Besides though truly and warmly attached to her stepdaughter she was keenly alive to the fact that her own precious child was utterly dependent on her half sister. She never doubted that Nora if left to herself would be both just and generous but if Nora married before attaining her majority Beatrice would be really dependent on some Mere stranger and men Are so strange and hard about Money matters. Then a husbands Power and influence Are so great the poor lonely widow though she blushed for herself earnestly hoped Nora would not marry until she was 21. If Nora married Marsden she Felt sure he would be kind and generous. He was peculiarly sympathetic. It was this that gave him More than half his attraction. He always conveyed the idea that he was really glad to help any one. His detestation of everything unpleasant or painful gave him an air of kindness that imposed even on himself. Yes if Nora would consent bears future was secure and Why should she not a better or indeed a happier marriage could not be found. Why Nora was not already in love with her suitor mrs. Les Trange could not understand and set it Down to one of the inscrutable mysteries of a Young undeveloped nature. Nora too was thoughtful and the evening passed almost in silence occasionally each spoke a few words and then fell into a fit of musing. The spell however was broken by the Entrance of the servant with a note for mrs. La estrange. A the messenger Waits a i will ring in a minute or two a said mrs. La estrange opening the envelope. A it is from or. Marsden Nora a she exclaimed. A the wants to see me alone to Morrow a indeed a a i supposed a smiling a the wants to secure your vote and a they Are his a pause. A what shall i say Nora a a whatever you a then i shall see she Rose went to the writing table and penned a few lines and sent them to Marsden a messenger. A i imagine that or. Marsden will not be easily turned from his purpose. And i Hope Nora you will not too thoughtlessly refuse so sincere and disinterested a a ooh i know All that can be urged in his favor a said Nora rather impatiently a and he is very Nice Only i think i should like to be Nora la estrange for some time longer. I have seen so Little. How could i manage a great establishment like eve Sleigh House i am half afraid of that awful housekeeper. And the Squire himself likes everything to be so perfect so elegant he might regret his own haste in wanting to marry such a half fledged creature As i a Nora dear Nora this humility is a new development a a i know what i am fit for and i am not Humble but i do not want to attempt what is Likely to be too much for me. There done to let us talk about Clifford any More at least till you have seen him a Promise me not to refuse him without due a no. I am too undecided to do that. But it rather awful to think that having once said a yes a one cannot Unsay mrs. La estrange need scarcely have recommended Nora to reflect on Marsden a offer. She was haunted by the recollection of his words his voice his eyes. It is True that he kept himself Well in hand and kept Back Many a passionate expression that rushed to his lips. Nevertheless he had impressed Nora very deeply with the conviction that she was very essential to him. It rather weighed her Down with a vague sense of alarm. What was she to do with this tremendous gift of love a so Strong that his voice trembled in spite of his efforts to be steady when he described it and his heart throbbed fast and hard when he pressed her hand for a moment against it. Ought she condemn one who was so tenderly attached to her to suffer the pangs of disappointment and rejection because she had a morbid fancy for another who did not care for her and with the thought came a suggestion that sent thrills of pain quivering through her veins. Had the same words and tones and looks been Winton show differently she would have responded perhaps by cultivating gratitude to Marsden and giving herself up to his efforts to please and win her she would succeed in Loving him and then she would make him Happy and be Happy herself. What a solution of All difficulties that would be perhaps it would be the right thing to do. How hard it was to know what was right. Finally the tears welled up As she thought with regretful compassion of the Strong emotion Marsden had displayed surely such affection constituted a claim upon any kindly heart. Yet she ardently wished he had not taken such a fancy to her. So after struggling with contradictory thoughts for half the night she fell asleep toward morning with a half uttered prayer to be directed aright upon her lips. Mrs. La estrange received Marsden cordially and cheerfully. She did not doubt for a moment that Nora having recovered her first startled Surprise at his unexpected proposal would marry him willingly As it was natural she should and she was anxious he should see How very heartily she was on his Side. A i feel sure i have a Friend in you a were almost his first words after he had shaken hands with her warmly a we were always allies since your first appearance at a yes. Or. Marsden you were always Welcome to my husband and to a Nora has told you of the Start i gave her a interrupted Marsden who was absorbed in his own projects. A i feel i have been too abrupt. In Short having been pretty far gone about her nearly Ever since we met last Spring i fancied she must see it and to be candid her blindness suggests that she May be preoccupied by some luckier fellow than myself. Am i right a a you ought to ask her or. a and seem a conceited Jac Kanapes by implying that Only a previous attachment would have prevented her falling in love with me a mrs. La estrange smiled. A i do not think Nora is disposed to fall in love very readily. Then there was no one for her to fall in love a some women might fancy a i do not think Nora did. Indeed they never seemed to take much to each other especially of a Well mrs. La estrange you will Back me up i May depend on you a a you May. How did you and Nora part a a ooh she was anxious to get rid of me i could see that but i told her i would not take her first a no a nor her second either mrs. La estrange i am determined that Nora shall be my a not against her will a a no that would be too a Gallant a returning to his usual Light tone a but with her a take my advice wait a few Days before repeating your offer. Let me Tell her you will give her time to think and meanwhile that she must let you come As a Friend and a very Well. I shall be guided by you but i can to stand this uncertainty Long. Why does she not like me for she a it is impossible to say she is not a commonplace a thank you for the implied a you have caught me up too soon. Will you write what i have suggested or shall i speak to Nora a a i will write a he said and speedily traced a few lines. A there a he continued handing the note to mrs. La estrange a i am very grateful for your help and believe me if i become your step son in Law i will care for your interests and those of my Little Friend Bea As if they were my a you Are very Good a said mrs. La estrange softly. A now a continued Marsden a what shall we do it is an awful time in London i almost wish i had not come up. There is shooting or Hunting or something to be done in the country. Have you been to Windsor it is a tolerably Fine Day. Let us go Down and lunch there and walk about after. Just Settle it with Nora. A very Well a said mrs. L estrange and left the room. She was some Little time absent during which Marsden walked to and fro picked up and put Down books and papers which Lay about and occasionally looked at the clock. He was impatient but not uneasy he did not doubt his ultimate Success and was not altogether displeased with Nora a hesitation. It was the sense of difficulty which was her crowning Charm. He had seen Many lovelier and More fascinating women but none had Ever charmed and vanquished him As this unworldly natural Young Cousin. A hat fair round arms she had wha a Sweet Mouth half sad half haughty would she Ever press it fondly to Hist what would he not dare what villain would he not commit to secure her Foi himself away from every one and would the Day Ever come when she would be to him As other women Graceful and Plena ant enough but nothing remarkable Well not for a Long time. There would be a spell of heaven first. Here he threw himself into an armchair and took up a Book of photographs it opened at the portrait of mrs. Ruthvan. Was that an evil Omen he hated her yet when they had met Early that year in Paris before he had seen Nora he was rather taken with her. Her veiled admiration for himself flattered and amused him. He even thought of appropriating her wealth in Exchange for his name. Now pah How he wished she would die and take herself out of his world where she was not wanted the Telegram that morning was about As bad As it could be perhaps Luck would still be on his Side for he had a vague uncomfortable impression that mrs. Ruthven would work him evil. Here mrs. La estrange returned and handed a Little twisted note which he eagerly opened and read a you Are very kind and considerate i accept your this was simply signed a i think you ought to be Content a said mrs. La estrange smiling. A i am and our expedition to Day a a we will be ready to accompany you ii an hour. Nora made no the meeting under such trying Circum stances was less awkward than Nora expected. She could not help admiring Marsden a tact and Cool self Possession. If anything he was More attentive to mrs. La estrange than to herself. The weather was Tine the conversation Light and Ani mated. Marsden spoke of mrs. Ruthven with much Good feeling and the Day was far More agreeable than Nora anticipated nor did Marsden leave them without making some plans for the Morrow which would bring them together. To be continued gowns and owning. Women give much attention to what they Wear Brief glances at fancies feminine frivolous Mayhap and yet offered in the Hope that the beading May prove restful to wearied womankind. Improvident fishing. Upon the Atlantic coast tile utmost Effort of the fish commissioners supported by ample state and National ex-1 f01 that softens the exacting outline. Gossip from Gay Gotham. Boulders Are on View these Days and the woman with a Good pair of Mem sets her less fortunate sister half wild with envy by wearing gowns that fit the top of her like a Glove and still display a contour that would be a credit to an athlete. It is outside such line figures that sleeves Are seen pushed away Down to a starting place on the Arm so that the round outline of the shoulder May be completed and seen. This very feature of Cut lends a character that is hard to attain by other Means and that will suffice with most women without adding Novelty of other sort. But Odd trimming is sometimes combined with it As is done in this first picture where the fitted White mohair bodice has an 1830 Yoke to match and is covered with balloon and embroidery in beige silk in fancy scroll work. Standing Collar sleeves and skirt Are of beige mohair the latter trimmed about the hem with three bands of balloon. The second pictured dress would be quite As trying were it not that it is draped about the shoulders with coif Pend iture seems powerless to effect a renewal of the abundance of old. No More saddening exhibitions of Many a i Providence Are afforded than by the Noble Rivers that have been depleted or exhausted of their finny treasures and of such perhaps the most striking Are those presented by the larger affluent of Chesapeake Bay the Potomac and the Susquehanna. Sixty years ago. Through the greater course of these Long streams both the Shad and the Alewife or fresh water herring existed in almost incredible numbers. In the Potomac the two species bold often ascend the River together and it was not an uncommon draught to secure several Hundred thousand herring and several thousand Shad at a single haul. The fishermen in drawing the Seine on Shore would pile the herring knee deep for twelve or fifteen feet landward and then walk or Wade through the mass thrusting in their arms and picking out the Shad. The herring so stacked would be sometimes sold for a Mere trifle sometimes be Given away often although an edible fish and perhaps Superior in that respect to the common herring would be carted off for manure and sometimes for Lack of even that demand would be allowed to float away upon the rising tide. In 1832 950,000, accurately counted were taken out at one draught the number of Shad seized was often 4,00c and upward and the Selling Price As Low As a Dollar and a half per Hundred fish. Of such destructive fishing a constant decline in the annual catch was the inevitable result and thus it happened that for some years prior to the War practical exhaustion had been popular science monthly. This Blouse is of Moss Green and red changeable silk the upper one showing an appliqued Bow knot of Cream Guipre and the Yoke and Collar Are of Black Chiffon Over Scarlet silk. Knots of Black ribbon ornament the sides of the Collar and each of the 1830 Elbow sleeves shows one of the big Bow knots. White gloves White parasol and a White hat with Black trimmings Complete the costume. For the girl whose Ann not stand Complete exposure in evening dress there is made a sleeve that fits close on the inside of the Arm from wrist to Tho hollow under the shoulder and on the Waist they bedeck consists of alternate lace and tulle bands has Ivory silk lining and lace Collar and fastens at the Side. It is sketched in Green Pompadour silk and embroidered tulle and accompanies a skirt whose Odets Are held Down at the sides by straps of the same Shade of ribbon edged with narrow Iffie and ending in rosettes the Belt being made to match with two loops in Back. Though dress improves Are not worn enough to make women dread the coming of the Bustle or the hated grecian Bend yet the Jaunty fling of the skirt directly from the Belt in Back is cultivated and the effect is emphasized by Many Little tricks favorite among which Are the Butterfly bows with which ribbon belts Are completed. These bows have a pair of loops that stand Well out and a regular wheel of ends that stand All around the loops apparently at their own Sweet will. The ends Are of All lengths some Only As Long As the loops others reaching half Way Down the skirt. With the Cut of skirt whose Odets Are very deep Bow or fixings of this sort Are not needed to suggest the improver for those same deep pleats will bring a Bunch at the Back of the skirt that will not Bear Blue and the Gray. Brave men who met on the Field of Battle. Thrilling stories of the rebellion old soldiers and sailors relate interesting reminiscences of life in Camp and att the Fields incidents of the War. This is True or and they went away and got a pistol Aud gave it to the hand of Turando Kuen and pulled the trigger. Then came out a Bullet like a Thunder storm. The baby wag not afraid of it. Aud never changed the color of his face but pointing to the pistol asked another shot. The father As Well As the bad Bors. Was ast Ulsh important food tests. De and there a Roll his Tongue. No one who did not As to hypnotism. No less a personage than or. Park Hurst has taken the trouble to Point out anew that nobody Ever heard of anybody a being hypnotized to make him do something Good. Hypnotism the doctor thinks from the evidence is always exerted to promote evil and for that reason he is inclined to condemn it the fact commented on by the doctor has often been spoken of but it really constitutes no fault of hypnotism. It is simply the fault of human nature. Man gravitates toward the bad. When hypnotism is exerted in the same direction with this natural gravitation it is effective. When it is exerted in the opposite direction it is simply trying to pull the Load Uphill and it fails. There Are no doubt plenty of persons especially ladies Efflo go about weaving Subtle hypnotic charms around men for the Noble purpose of leading them aright just As tile bad people whom ave hear of through the police reports go about hypnotizing for ill. But the Good hypnotists work at a tremendous disadvantage. It is upgrade for them and downgrade for the bad hypnotists. As Between a Svengali Friend trying to hypnotize a Man to stay out and play poker and a wife trying to hypnotize him to come Home the Odds Are with the Friend. Perhaps hypnotism will develop to a Point where it can overcome this natural disadvantage. Or perhaps Mankind will get Over the brow of the Hill so that the Way to Good will be a Down news. Gen. Braggs answer. There was an amusing incident in the United states court room a few Days ago we Hen in the trial of a suit Over a Sale of Stock of the Labelle Wagon works at fond do Lac Gen. E. S. Bragg was called As a w fitness. As the Doughty Warrior was turned Over to attorney j. G. Flanders for Cross examination a grim smile overspread his countenance As he awaited the onslaught. A what is your business or occupation Gen. Bragg a asked or. Flanders. Even the court smiled. A a he a in a a lawyer a retorted the general. A How Long have you been engaged in that honest occupation a queried attorney Flanders without moving a muscle. The court moved about uneasily in a vain attempt to conceal a Well defined smile. A should say about forty years Ever since i quit Pett fogging a retorted the general tartly and even attorney Flanders joined in the laughter though at his own Wisconsin. Red carpet is a Joy forever. A red carpet is a peculiarly effective Factor in household decoration. It makes a Good background for All other colors gives a warmth and cheerfulness to the entire room and More than All it radiates a becoming cosiness upon All the inhabitants thereof. A very a appliqued with love knots. Outer Side of the Arm is Loose and puffed Down to the Elbow. This sleeve is made of transparent material and is laced up the inside of the Arm the flesh showing Between the cords while the draping of the puff softens the Elbow though the transparency of the material allows the general contour of the Arm to show. The bodice is made with a pointed Yoke the Yoke lacing along its edges to the rest of the dress and exposing slightly thus just that part of the neck which cannot help being smooth no matter How thin the girl May be. A Good device for a neck that is too thin is a High Stock Collar of open heavy lace wired to follow the outline of the neck and to come up almost to the ears. The lace is Black heavily jewelled and spangled and a pair of Flat lace tabs hang Iii front just Over tile Collar Bones leaving the Throat under the Chin exposed. This sort of Collar is worn with a Square Cut gown the tabs reaching to the top of the cutout. The w Oman whose height permits her to slip her sleeves from her shoulders but whose shoulders Are not quite statuesque enough to base so much exposure will take advantage of the epaulettes now in Vogue. These have the effect of Oblong pieces of material set Over the shoulder the longest Way of the Oblong extending from the Back of the shoulder to the front the narrow dimension making the Width of the distance from the top of the shoulder out on to the sleeve. A pair of these Are fashioned by running lace on straps of ribbon. The sleeves Are slipped Well Down off the shoulders then the epaulettes Are adjusted the straps of ribbon being placed just where the Sli Oulder accentuation of any sort. These wondrous folds Are More often seen in Cre Pon weaves than in anything else and it is one of those that the artist selects for the fourth Model. Navy Blue is the Shade of this material which gives Plain skirt and deep Corse let. Then there Are deep Yoke and sleeves of Pale Blue figured silk. Straps of Pale Blue Satin ribbons with rosettes at the ends come Over the shoulder the Collar is ornamented to match and rosettes of the ribbon Dot the sleeves and Waist. This Model is a particularly Youthful one and the stuffs employed in it Here should be taken merely As suggestions for it is suitable for All summer materials. White was never More popular. Really a Young woman May risk Lier summer season if she has a change of White frocks for All occasions with one or two Linen color effects run in. A wardrobe so planned is right in line with Economy too for with Only one or two colors represented in a wardrobe infinite combinations Are possible and just now the combination of Linen or string color and Clear White is much effected. Of All the White fabrics mohair is away ahead and rigs Are made from it that Are simply stunning. One of these is shown in the final picture the skirt being mohair and the Blouse of figured Rose Pink Batiste with sleeves and basques of the same. Its Garn iture consists of a Bertha of the dress mate rial edged with a band of Bright embroidery and a fancy Yoke with a big cent i Pleat in Back and front and Points on either Side. The Points As Well As the neck finish show the same embroidery seen on the Bertha. So far All is whiteness and simplicity but Mark you the july maid of 95 goes Sim the Heath of Gen. Morgan. Erh aps no cavalry officer of the Confederate army was More popular than Gen. John h. Morgan of Kentucky. Writes a Southern correspondent. Ii i s troops idolized him. For no one was More Gallant or considerate in the treatment of his men. His tragic death and the capture of Bis personal staff at Greenville teun., on the 4th Day of september. 1884, is thus narrated by Capi. James Rogers who was a member of Gem morgans staff my was present on the occasion of his death a on the 3d Day of september 1804,�?� says capt. Rogers. A Gen. Morgan attended by his staff consisting of capt. Albert g. Withers capt. H. B. Clay major Garrett and myself started from Carters station team in command of about 1,500 cavalry composed in part if the brigades of Cantrell Gillner and Everett and a regiment from Gen. a brigade in command of col. Bradford and a Section of artillery. Greenville was reached about 5 of clock on the evening of the 3d. The troops were quartered in and around the town with Headquarters at mrs. Williams whose residence was situated in the Eastern portion of the town. Col. Bradford was ordered to picket All roads leading in the direction of bulls Gap the stronghold of the enemy As it j was Well known that Gen. Gillam. With about 3,000 Well mounted men. Was at j that place. It was the purpose of Gen. I Morgan to move at 3 of clock on the morning of the 4th of september Aud \ to attack the enemy As soon As he could reach Bim but at about i of clock on the morning of the 4m a terrible rain began to fall in consequence of which Gen. Morgan countermanded his orders j to move at 3 a. In. On the night of the id an old resident of Greenville came j to the House of mrs. Williams approached major Garrett and i while we were sitting on the front Piazza of the House and informed us that the Junior mrs. Williams had left the town. As it was known that her husband was we Ith the Federal command at bulls Gap he believed that she intended to betray Gen. Morgan if possible. A the general was immediately informed of this Aud at once notified the officers in charge of the outposts. In the meantime mrs. Williams was looked after but could nowhere be found. Having implicit Confidence in the Oiler in charge of the pickets. Gen. Morgan and his staff retired for the night a was before stated at about i of clock the rain came Down in torrents. The couriers Aud orderlies were quartered in the Back Piazza or portico of the House. Gen. Morgan Ever mindful of the Comfort of his men. Had gone Down stairs and moved the boys inside of the lower Hall. The House was a double Brick with four rooms on each acor the second Story being reached by a winding stairway. The general occupied the upper front room on the right. Captain Withers and major Garrett occupied rooms the one opposite Captain Clay and myself the other in the rear of the general a room. All was quiet until about Daylight on the 4th, when the writer was asked the cause of so much firing. It being very unusual i approached the Back windows Aud found that the Back Garret and Back Yard were filled with federals who we Ere having a regular Duel with the orderlies and couriers below. No time was to be lost i ran out and looked in the general a room and came in collision with miss re bought a sister of the mrs. Williams who had deserted and betrayed us the night before. Miss re bought was going to Gen. Morgans room to inform him of the presence of the enemy. Gen. Morgan was up and dressed in a minute and accompanied by major Garrett and myself left the House. We first we ent to a Small Church situated on the left Aud front of the Yard. Finding that we could not conceal ourselves Here the general sent major Garrett to the Entrance from main Street to see if it was possible to make an exit by that route. I Aud a or. Johnson who was clerk for the bogus War relics. I a people who Purchase Battlefield re pics do not always get the Simon pure Are said a new Orleans Man. A i j know an instance of How a fellow who j resides near Chickamauga has made several thousand dollars by a system Marie manufacture of relics. His meth Jod is simple and primitive but it accomplishes its object. First of All this i Modem old curiosity shop Man picks j out a Tret with a few promising knot holes. These he whittles out with a Jackknife to the desired size after i which he takes an old Rusty Cannon Ball a and forces it about half Way into the i Hole leaving it for a year or so until t the knot partially grows Over it. A relic of this kind brings All the Way from $10 to $20. And As a Branch of Industry is unsurpassed from the standpoint of old soldiers numerous in Missouri. Missouri is a great country for soldiers. During the great civil War it would appear that almost the entire male population of sufficient age was called on to Bear arms. Between the Union and Confederate forces there was As Phil Kearny phrased it a Lovely fighting along the whole there was no Community that did not experience the sights and sounds the excitement and alarms of War. After hostilities had ceased the military element we As largely re Euf Oreed from beyond the Mississippi. In those Days Missouri i was considered a new country and was sought by immigrants. Certain i portions of the state were counted As i a Homestead the disbanded i soldiers of both armies came to mis-1 sour. This gave the state a great martial population. White mohair a pointed a w Ith Black. Stylish epaulettes. Straps of an evening bodice would have gone three or four years ago. The lace of the epaulettes thus hangs Over the bared round of the shoulder and softens the effect charmingly. Sometimes All that is necessary is the shoulder straps with a tiny frilling of lace on Plain Little apartment May be glorified i either Side to soften the Mere suggests a red carpet and the coldest of North windowed rooms May be brightened and lightened by the same saving Grace of color. It is Well nigh impossible to get the blues in a red carpeted room. The sole drawback to the red carpet is its ability to show dirt a1 too plainly but its Many excellence More than make up for this defect Chaucer a boyhood was passed in a ovine vault where he was required to Wash barrels and clean wine casks Tion of hollow that is so exaggerated when the shoulders Are entirely Bare. With dresses that do not Bare the Throat or shoulders epaulettes often take the form of those in the third illustration which Are merely ribbon straps with edging or lace. Epaulettes Are usually purely ornamental whatever their shape but this sort somehow gives an impression of being put on solely for the looks of the thing and that is just what makes them favored in summer time fanciful Ness. The a Lafity several better in Many respects and in this costume she does it by wearing Black gloves Aud a Black hat trimmed with Pink As an effective Relief to the rest. The swagger yachting girl rigs herself up in a we Hite we ool gown and has hanging from her White Duck Ivory buckled Belt by Ivory chains a White Duck card ease pocketbook note Book Aud spy Glass Case. When these Dainty things become soiled As they will they can to go into the Washtub so Are just chalked. For that reason the yachting dress must be Clear White. This years Outing dress is a great improvement on that of �?T94. The skirt is Shorter than last year and is so stiff that it keeps an air of freshness in All Weathers. The Little jacket is held Down by a Belt that insures a Trig tit at the Back while the same Belt passing through slits near the front of the jacket allows the required Loose effect there and gives finish at the same time to the top of the skirt where the shirt Waist disappears. This style relieves the wearer once and for All of we Orry about the joining of her skirt and Belt at the Back and yet is almost As Jaunty As the Eton effect. An innovation is effected by wearing under a Blue Serge jacket a w Hite Wool Waist full drooping Over the Belt and Cut Low in the neck a very wide Sailor Collar turning Back Over the top of the jacket the Collar does not come to the usual open Point in front but starts from either Side of the front leaving a Square Cut effect where the Throat is exposed. The Throat must be Brown for it is accepted As very bad form to expose a ballroom neck or in other we ords a Illy White one.

The Day when the circus was in town or when the county fair was showing its pumpkins i and four minute horse trots or when i the great and glorious fourth of july i had come around again we Ere about the i Only occasions when the popular yearn ing for the Peanut was in any measure j satisfied. On these memorable occasions the nut was shucked and Mastic Ted j until it rest. It was Only in j the towns and Large villages that the j favored few could have peanuts with i them always. Before the War there i w Asur to a Peanut roaster in the whole i country outside of the big towns and cities Aud the Rural dealers bought their Stock already roasted and delivered to them in big coarse bags. Today every Cross roads from Maine to California has its Peanut stand and its wheezing steam roaster and the great american nut has no better stand ing on circus Day or fourth of july i than it has on any Ordinary Day of the year except that there is greater concentration of Energy As to its shucking and chewing on these red letter Days. Quot now then a Large proportion of the soldiers who went to Virginia Tennessee and North Carolina were from the Rural districts of the North. So we Hen they got among the Peanut patches they we Ere metaphorically speaking right in Clover. At first they roasted at their Camp tires the peanuts they pulled from the patches but it Wasny to Long before they not Only acquired a taste for them raw but actually preferred them that Way. The result was that the boys discovered after a while that they hunkered after their peanuts pretty nearly As much As they did for their i tobacco and after they got Home they j brought the longing with them. What i has been the consequence the de Maud for peanuts increased so much immediately after the War that the crop i did no to begin to Supply it. Wide awake Farmers saw the Point and Garden How to produce More economical and healthful articles for the table. The official fowl analyses by the United states and Canadian government. Have been studied with interest. The United states government report give the names of eighteen Well known baking powders some of them advertised As pure Eream of tartar powders which contain Alum. The report shows the Royal to be a pore Eream of tartar baking powder the highest in strength evolving Khuu cubic inches of Leavening Gas in or single ounce of powder. There were eight other brands of Eream of tartar powders tested and their average strength was 111.5 cubic inches of Gas per ounce of powder. The Canadian government investigations were of a still larger number of powders. The Royal baking powder was Here also shown the purest and highest in strength containing fort five per cent More Leavening Gas per ounce than the average of All the other Cream of tartar powders. These figures Are very instructive to the practical housekeeper. They indicate that the Royal baking powder goes More than 33 per cent further in use than the others or is one third More economical. Still Mon important than this however they prove this popular article has been brought to the highest degree of purity for to its superlative purity this superiority in strength is due anti consequently that by its use we May be insured the purest and most wholesome food. The powders of lower strength Are found to leave Large amounts of impurities in the food. This fact is emphasized by the report of the Ohio state food commissioner who. While finding the Royal practically pure. Found no other powder to contain less than id Lier cent. Of inert or foreign matters. The statistics show that there is used in the manufacture of the Royal baking powder More than half of All the Cream of tartar consumed in the United states for All purposes. The wonderful Sale thus indicated for the Royal baking powder greater than that of All other baking powders combined in perhaps even a higher evidence than that already quoted of the superiority of this article and of its indispensable Ness to modern cookery. Japanese hats. The Nobles and swells of Japan now nearly All Wear stovepipe hats on solemn and Dressy occasions. The same hat is handed Down from generation to generation like the Mikado a Crown. Many of those on the Street during the festivities celebrating the return of the emperor were evidently brought Over soon after Commodore Perry came and the rest must have come in instalments since 1858, for they represented every fashion of headgear since that Date. It is Worth noting also that in the whole throng there was no drunkenness no disorder no quarrelling. The japanese of the Ordinary sort do not Wear a hat at All nor does any Jap consider a hat necessary As a head covering but merely for the dignity of it. And the dignity of the dude is enhanced by wearing his stovepipe tile at least two sizes too Large. In the army and by the policemen neat Blue cloth Caps Are worn like a new y Ork police captains. Women Wear no head covering at All or in very cold weather bring their shawls Over their Heads. Paddlers and Rickshaw men knot a White kerchief Over their locks and the Bones or beggar priests Wear curious hats like inverted bread bowls still carrying out the idea that a hat is a badge of office rather than clothing. One of the Queerest official head dresses is no longer seen in Japan. The downfall of the shogunate withdrew from View forever those queer hats that looked like a belgian paving Block tied on the top of the head with a string. Adjutant general remained w Ith Gen.

From the rear we passed into a Small Vineyard. By this time those of the staff who had remained in the House were captured and the whole town seemed alive we Ith Yankee soldiers. While in the Vineyard we were surrounded and Gen. Morgan was killed after the whole party had surrendered. The old Story that he fought until death is absolutely untrue As none of the party fired a shot.

Those of us who were captured with the general a body were removed to the top of the Hill West of Greenville we Here we met Gillam and his command. By this time the clothing had nearly All been stripped from his body and he Lay like a hog in his Wallow covered with blood. Gen. Gillam however righted this indignity As he should. He had the body placed in an ambulance and in charge of Captain Withers Clay and myself it was brought Back to the Williams residence where it was washed dressed and left for removal by the confederates.

Gen. Grants childhood. In the Century Are printed extracts from a rare and curious japanese life of Gen. Grant. The following is from it from the time of his birth he was different from an Ordinary baby. His body was Laie. He weighed i Kwan 292 me. As he grew his thought be came deeper accordingly. It was seen by the Eye of every Mao. He showed no color of fear however great the sound that came into his ear. When he was not fully two years old his father Jessi i rum Ito Turando happened to carry him outside of the House and some bad Young men in the neighbourhood looking Back at Turando Kuen said a we hear that this baby As people say has a Brave heart and never fears anything we will try whether Day Virginia Tennessee and North Carolina Are growing something like 3.000,000 bushels of peanuts a year a result due almost entirely to the civil War and the contracting of the Peanut habit by the soldiers of both armies. A naturally the returned soldiers loud fall for peanuts soon placed the nut within their reach and that of the Rural population to the furthest limit of swayback and the nut ceased forever to be simply a Holiday luxury. The floor of the Backwoods grocery is now littered nightly with the shucks of peanuts hot from a revolving roaster As thickly As it Ever was on the fourth of july in the Olden time and the old Soldier can get his Supply of raw peanuts at Way Back Corners just As fresh and regular almost As if he were still on the old Camp ground yanking the nuts from their native soil. A when the War broke out most of the peanuts consumed in this country were raised in North Carolina. A great Many were imported from Africa. They were of inferior Quality. The Best of the Ante Bellum peanuts As a matter of fact were poor compared with the nuts grown to Day. In fact. Even the later demand for peanuts has not seemed to have had the effect of improving the Quality or increasing the yield of the North Carolina product very much. Virginia and Tennessee though woke right up under the increased demand and improved cultivation has produced a nut especially in Virginia that is As near per eolian As can be. For All that Many old soldiers prefer the Little thin shelled Strong Flavoured Carolina nut to the Best Virginia nut.

In the Antitoxin or diphtheria cure the horse is made Tho medium of production of the remedy much As vaccine is produced from calves. The horse is inoculated and his blood is used to counteract the diphtheria germ Antitoxin stables Are being established everywhere and As blood is the Only thing asked of the animals Small horses Are generally preferred. The invention being a French one it has naturally made More Progress in that country and in Paris alone a stud of 386 horses is kept for immunizing purposes. Twenty of these animals Are maintained by the government for the Benefit of the hospitals and the poor. Other studs Are kept in different parts of the country. That the animals flourish despite the periodical loss of blood is proved by their general appearance of Well being. One Pony has supplied 420 quarts of blood and is apparently Good for As Many More so that the Triumph of science is Complete in obtaining a cure for the dread disease without sacrificing the life or health of Many a noblest Friend.
