A French Bridal Toilet That Affords
New Features, Including a NoYel Drap
ing of the VeU Latest Stylex in Im
' The simple but exceedingly charming
French toilet for a youthful bride, depicted
in our cut, is worthy of special mention
Attention is called to the long veil artistic
ally draped on the top of the head in a new
style, -which entirely displays the face of
the wearer, meanwhile forming an orna
ment for the coiffure, where it is held in
place with pearl and diamond pins, and a
diadem of floral blossoms, which rests
against the diaphanous puffings of the
Mechlin net. The trained skirt is in white
silk; tho sleeves and draped corselet are in
China crape. The chemisette with plaited
neckband and short sleeves are in lace, as
is ths ruff. A tuft of orange blossoms is
on the waist.
FRENCH BBIDAL TOILET.
A wedding gown made in London and
recently Been was mado of white satin and
poplin, trimmed with laoe. The court train
of three yards and a half long, to be held
by pages, was composed of the poplin, lined
with satin, one corner turned up, and on
this reposed a largo bunch of orange blos
som. The bodice, too, was of poplin, with
the tight waistcoat of tho satin, and largo
upstanding leg-of-mutton sleeves of tho
same, matching tho high Medici collar
lined with lace. Across the front of tho
bodice came a drapery of lace and a WTeath
of orange blossoms, which met a panel of
loco on tho ono bide, while the foot was
bordered with a ruche of orange blossom.
Style in Shoes.
Shoes to wear with summer dresses will
be in all colors, yellow, green and black,
tho black of patent leather and the others
of russet. The low heel is cast aside for
those of one to one and one-third inches in
height. Xew York shoemakers are getting
out shoes with toes more than rounded
quite pointed in fact.
FASHIONABLE FREKCH SHOES.
Our illustration gives a good idea of the
fashions prevailing in French shoes, which
many American ladies still prefer. Follow
ing is a description in brief: Fig. 1, patent
leather ornamented with black silk em
broidery, and a rucking in black lace. Fig.
2, satin shoe, sparkling on tho toes with
crystal embroidery, and set off with n
pinked out chicoreo in taffetas; rosette bow
Mud long loops to match. Fig. S, bride's
Shoes wrought with silver and poarls; rib
bon loops over the straps. Fig. 4, tan or
colored kid, enhanced with stripes of silk
oi Jet embroidered and'a plaited satin bow
Fig. 5, black velvet shoe, edged with jet or
ribbon loops; small buckles shine in tho
center of tho two ribbon bows.
An Old Trimming Revived.
The old fashioned narrow silk fringe
trims some of tho season's tea gowns. It
edges the entire front of tho gown on both
sides, and also the short scarfs which form,
in many gowns, tho over sleeve, resom
bling a scarf passed under tho arm, and
gathered up high on tho top of it. In this
stylo an effectivo combination is a cinna
mon silk gown and fringe, and scarfs, open
ing over a front, and tight long sleeves of
white; or an emerald green oror pale sal
mon pink or gray.
Tho New Jerejs.
Tho jersey is developing some new fea
tures. On English jersey tho high collar
is being adopted, not tho Medici collar;
that huA gone. It is tho Mario Antoinette
now. Tho latter stands away from the
neck, and doesn't give that choked appear
anco to tho wearer that the Medici does.
A blue y y finished in this fashion also

ALL AROUND THE HOUSE.
Crowding Too 3Iany Pretty Things Into
tho Drawing: liootti at One Time.
A prominent fault which a New York
critic finds in the drawing rooms of that
city is the too great profusion of furniture
and bric-a-brac crowded into them. It
trips you up od the floor, drops down at
you from the chandelier and cornices,
makes it dangejous to stretch your legs or
move your elbows whenou sit, and ren
ders it impossible to find a bit of unoccu
pied wall big enough to lean against. It is
a great pleasure, of course, to have lots of
pretty things, but they need not all be on
exhibition at once. One fashionable woman,
in this city, who can afford to buy almost
anything that strikes her fancy, has a store
room in her house filled with choice bric-a-brac
and furniture. Every week a dozen or
so of these precious treasures are brought
out and arranged about tho rooms, and as
many others that have been on duty for a
time are packed away again. Thus her
parlor has always a certain expression
about it, so to spoak, widely different from
the look of a bazaar, highly fashionable, but
exceedingly unrestful, that a too well filled
How to Heat an Egg.
One person will take fifteen minutes to
beat an egg to a froth and have it less light
than another in five minutes. This is be
cause, as Good Housekeeping explains, tho
one will boat fast, carrying tho fork, but
entangling very little air; the other will
lift the egg, as it were, and throw it over
the fork. This is the proper way and does
the work in half tho time. Acquire the
habit of beating eggs, or, in fact, anything
else, from the elbow, not using the wholo
arm; the fatigue will bo much lessoned.
The use of egg beaters has made egg beat
ing for cakes, such a formidable task in our
mothers' days, a very light one in ours, but
for beating one egg a fork, even now, is
often most convenient. Even with a beater,
however, the best results aro obtained by
observing certain rules. In hot weather
leave the eggs in ice water or on ice for
some time before using. It is not a good
plan, however, to keep all your eggs on ice,
because they then becomo so thoroughly
chilled that in boiling them you cannot es
timate the time required, and should they
become frosted they are inferior for all pur
poses. In beating the whites of eggs a
tiny pinch of salt will tend to facilitate the
Fish or chicken mayonnaise is always a
favorite dish at supper. Cold boiled cod
will do very well removed from tho bones
and flaked; if cold chickon is used the flesh
should be cut into small pieces. For the
sauce break tho yolks of three eggs into a
basin and beat into them, drop by drop,
tho contents of a half pint flask of salad
oil, adding every now and again a tea
spoonful of vinegar; beat in a pinch of salt,
a dash of cayenne pepper and a few chopped
capers. Pile the fish or chicken in the
center of the dishes, pour the sauce over
and put cut up lettuce round and decorate
prettily with chopped beet root and tho
hard yolks and v hites of eggs.
Asparagus Cream Soup.
Take a bunch of asparagus and boil it
till very tender; rut oil the heads, press
them through a sieve; put tho tender stalks
into a colander, and mash as much as you
can of them through. Add a quart of sweet
milk and a lump of butter, or half milk
and half cream; season with pepper and
salt; thicken a little with flour and water
if desired; boil up and serve with dice of
An English Tart.
To make an English tart a good sired,
deep baking dish with an edge is needed,
home pastry and fruit. The pastry may be
the best the cook can make, and the fruit
any kind that is at hand in winter canned
fruit or preserves. Almost any fruit will
make a good tart cherries, peaches, plums,
apricots, green gooseberries, greengages,
or a mixture of several kinds.
One quart of applesauce, ono cupful each
of sugar and cream, whites of two eggs
Mix cream, sugar and whites of the eggs
together and pour over tho cold apple

is previously prepared.
A Xovel Table Screen.
Screens in modern houso furnishing are
almost indispensable to divide the roar hall
from the front; to dei iso a cozy corner, to
shut off the draft from an open door, to
shield a couch or form a nook about a desk
m tho corner of tho Sitting room they are
essential agents. The screen is one of the
chief requisites of tho unexpected, and the
unexpected is desirable whenever it does
not degenerate into the bizarre and is not
at variance with the general scheme of dec
oration. AS SCREEX. AS TABLE.
Among costly materials used in screens
aro embossed leather, Japanese embroider

and painted glass. Less expensive 5creens

PHYSIOLOGY AND HYGIENE.
An Invention forFWngATtifieial Teeth
in the Jlouth Without a Plate.
A, dentist now proposes, to fix .artificial
teeth in the mouth-with a bar of gold,
which obviates, the -use of -the plate that
people complain of S3 much. The bar is a
sort of bridge about a quarter of an inch
wide that spans the roof of -the mouth. The
dentist who showed the invention said that
artificial gums made of-porcelain were now
more in favor than t&o&o made of vulcanite.
They could get porcelain a more natural
color. As for artificial teeth, people re
garded it almost as a sin nowadays not to re
place an absent tooth, eo popular has den
tistry becomo in late' years. Of course
women are in the majority of the custom
ers; not, however, for the sake of appear
ances, but because their teeth seem to go
quicker than men's.
Remedies for Kertralgla.
Miss Parloa recommends in The House
wife two remedies for qne who is suffering
from neuralgia in the head. Put him in a
warm bed. Make a brick very hot and
cover it with several thicknesses of flannel.
Fold a coarse, thick cloth and place it on
the pillow. Lay the brick on this and wet
thoroughly with rum. Kest the most pain
ful part of the head or face on tho brick
and throw a blanket over the patient, cov
ering the head. Keep covered in this way
until the pain ceases. When the blanket
is removed, wipe the moisture from the
head, face and neck, and then bathe in
alcohol or rum, to prevent the taking of a
Another remedy is to make salt very hot
by stirring it over the fire in a frying pan;
then pour it into a bag, which should be se
curely tied. Have the rjatient lie down and
cover him well. Place the bag of hot salt
on that part of the head or face where the
pain is located. The salt will retain the
heat a long time. This method is much
easier than the first, but it will not relievo
one so quickly nor so thoroughly.
A Chiropodist on Corns and Bunions.
An English chiropodist advances the
startling opinion that corns are hereditary.
He doesn't think that there is as much
difference between the size of the American
and the English woman's foot as has beon
claimed, "but tho Americans, you know,
have their boots built to fit them much
better." He takes out corns "for all sorts
of people, from girls of fifteen to young
swells and elderly people. Of course, elder
ly peaple form the majority. But there aro
four women to each man." It seems that
among the worst disfigurements of tho feet
are the ingrowing nails, which come from
wearing shoes with pointed toes. Bunions,
too, arise from the same cause, and theso
are mostly more costly to get rid of than
The Cremation Idea.
When a man is bitten by tho idea of
cremation ho becomes very strenuous in
letting everybody know. Cremation seems
to make people as enthusiastic as a new
religion. A jeweler recently mado for a
customer a cinerary urn which the cus
tomer was going to use as an ornament to
his sideboard till it was required for
graver purposes. The urn is made of tho
llnest crjstal gloss, mounted in carved and
molded silver. There are two shields on
tho silver cover, which is surmounted with
a heraldic helmet. The urn itself will hold
about as much ashes as mil go into an
ordinary sized round felt hat, that being

of children. Direct sunlight should not be

to have an injurious effect, securing repose
at the expense of vital force.

AFashionahlo Man's Comments on Trifle
of Importance Among Society People.
Mr. Word McAllister, prominent among
New York's "four hundred," notes in Tho
World some trifling social blunders which
often give serious offense, becauso they are
largely the result of thoughtlessness and
frequently do not admit of satisfactory ex
planation: "It is no unusual thing, for example, to
find a man or woman sending a note to an
acquaintance or friend and addressing the
envelope Mr. John Smith, instead of John
"It would bo difficult to tell, perhaps,
why it is so, but Mr. John Smith is felt to
be a moan and derogatory way of subscrib
ing the envelope, and it is a fashion never
used by careful people. John Smith, Esq.,
is the accepted formula, and unless the en
velope is addressed to a tradesman or a j
man in a distinctively inferior walk of life
it i- the formula which must be used. It
is not even permissible to use Mr. Smith
when the first name of the gentleman for
whom the letter is intended is unknown.
The proper formula in such a case is this:
"I state the practice in this matter as I
would in any other matter, and do not pre
tend to explain or justify i
"It is no unusual thing for writers to
addre correspondents as Dear Madam or
Dear Sir even when their feelings are of

arc really intimate with him. Dear Smith J

"The only case where the beginning of a
note with Sir or Dear Sir is not indicative
of a fceiing of sa!eTiority on the part of

the note is hostile in its character
"I need scarcely say," continued Mr. Mc

More than seven hundred years ago Earl
Conrad, of Germany, wrote these merry
lines. There are few lands in which the

in Asia and 'America, boys and girls have
hastened to the woods to gather the buds

they decorated themselves with flowers in
honor of Flora. In Germany also in our
own country the Maypole is sought for in
the woods and decked with ribbons and
flowers. In olden times the people gath

went, the old song:

A Short Chapter on Clocks.
At a very early period in the world's his
tory we And progress made in the measure
ment of long periods of time by observa
tion of the heavenly bodies. Thus time
was early divided into years according to
tho motion of the sun among the constella
tions, into months according to the motion
of the moon relatively to the sun's place in
tho heavens, and into days by the alternate
light and darkness caused by the rising and
setting of the sun. It was long, however,
before any accurate measure was found for
a division of the day itself.
THE CLOCK IM"VENTED IJ? 1379.
The earliest attempts in the direction of
measurement of short periods of time seems
to have led to the construction of the sun
dial. Also to the plan of running a given
quantity of fine sand from one vessel to an
other. But these expedients were unsatis
factory, as was also the method said to be
adopted by King Alfred, of noting the
lapse of time by watching the shortening
of a lighted candlo. In the year 1379 we
find that a rude kind of clock was invented
and constructed by a man named "De
"Wyck," which was erected in a tower of
the palace of Charles V, king of Franco.
Ic was simple in construction, and was
probably the basis of all the time keeping
machines in use during the Sixteenth cen
tury. From that remote period onward
the improvement in the working machin

An account from Tomsk describes the
state of the Siberian prisons as something
fearful, and gives tie following figures,
which speak for themselves: Tomsk, the
seat of the only university-in Siberia, is at
the same time the central depot pjdles.
It possesses a prison which can secomnio
date 705 men, reckoning for each one 4.S
cubic feet of air. There is space for 490
healthy persons and 275 sick ones, but the
number of exiles who arrived in Tomsk in
1SS6 was 16,184, of whom only 14,6G5 were
transported further. In iSS7 there arrived
14,277; in 1SSS, 15,014, and in 1SS9, up to
September, over 12,000, of whom 13,522, 14,
239 and 11,000 respectively were taken to the
In 1SS3 the average daily number of pris
oners was at least 1,318; in 18S7, 1,120, and
in 1SSS, 1,SS0. In some 'weeks these num
bers increased in 1SS6 to 2,955, in 1SS7 to
2,755, and in 1SSS oven ioo.&Q men. Among
these the daily average on the sick list was,
in 18S8, 3&i; in 16S7,513 (not less than 45.7

"1 Deny Death."

death I despise so muchy he remarked
with emphasis of gesture as well as of

him "thia idle and often cowardly as well
as ignorant harping! "Why should we not
chango, like everything else? In fiction, in
poetry, in so much of both French as well
as English and, I am told, in American
art and literature, tho shadow of death
call it what you will, despair, negation in

none the less alive and ever recruiting new
forces of existence. Without death, 'tfkich
