THE GOWNS OF THE SEASON ARE
Women Who Aro Too Tall or Too Short,
Too Stoat or Too Thin Gannot Look
"Well if They Adopt the J2xtreracst
Styles of the Day.
New Yobk, Oct. 2. A pretty little
French woman of my acquaintance re
marked the other day, "Malheur aus
femmes qui ne sontfyas hien faites cette
anne ci" unhappy the women this year
FAIL PROMENADE COSTCMES.
Trhoare not well built and in many
respects she is right, for it seems that
every weak the styles grow more trjing
for women who aro too short, too tall,
too thin or too fat.
The skirts to the newest walking and
dinner gowns have the fronts and side
hreadths cut so that they fit the form
like a glove, and in the middle of the
hack is laid the entire fullness, in flat
plaits. I have seen some, however, made
with accordeon plaitings in the hack,
and others with the buck breadths gath
ered full over a very small reed.
Jackets have largo sleeves and small
bodies, and then the skirt follows along
with a line which actually diminishes
toward the feet, giving the wearer a
sort of pegtop appearance. But of
course the.se are the very extremes. I
aw one new and beautiful costume of
chocolate brown ladies' cloth, the skirt
open up the front over a brown velvot
panel, and bordered with a passemen
terie band in which there was a gold
thread. With this is a handsome jacket
of braided beaver cloth in chocolate,
with a border of natural beaver, with
brown velvet sleeves and beaver cuffs.
This is a very refined costume.
Another pretty promenade toilet is of
Striped serge of the new style with
Btripes which resemble velvet made of
the same wool. The color is dark myr
tle green. With it is worn :v mantlet of
faille francaise, richly trimmed with
beaded passementerie. A tiny little
green velvet bonnet, with black plumes
and without strings, is worn with this.
And yet, with all this narrow, Scanty
effect in dresses, we are gravely told
that hoops, etc., etc. but they certainly
aro not worn now to any extent.
The long wx'ajis for fall are very ele
gant while showimr nothing very novel.
Tho most remarkable and handsome of
them I offer for my gentle readers. One
is made of thick and heavy figured wool,
Btono gray and black in color. It closes
on tho right side and has a pretty rolling
collar m mink which reaches to the
waist, and a wide band of tho same all
around the bottom, and the cuffs are
wade of tho same. A pretty jet orna
ment forms a point in front of tho waist.
The wrap does not open all the way
down, but is put on like a dress. A
wide velvet hat in stone gray has a rich
trimming of chaudron velvet and plumes.
Tho other wrap is of indigo blue, soft
wool, with black figures upon it. This
is cut like an ordinary princesso fitting
ulster, only that the sleoves are full, and
they aro of indigo velvet, with fur cuffs
reaching to tho elbow. A three inch
band of fur goes around tho neck and
reaches to tho feet on each side. It is of
raccoon, which is quite a favorite this
It is astonishing how much of a win
try and comfortable effect a little fur on
a garment affords. I knew one lady who
had an old fashioned muff in some sort
of a nondescript yellow color. She took
EtXGAXT FALL WRAPS.
It apart, cut the f nr into strips only one
inch wide and sewed them aronnd he
edges of a brown camel's hair polonaise,
on the sleeves and collar, and I neve
saw anything look prettier.
Last winter I bought three largo rac
coon skins and picked out all the long
hairs, which left a fine, downv far an
inch thick below, and of these 1 made a
shoulder cape, prettier because lighter
and more unify than any beaver, and
this winter I intend to get another skin
and treat that in the same way and sew
it on the skirt of a dress. It costs $1.50
and about a day's work to pull out the
long hairs, but it wonld cost if bought
ready done about $10 for as much fur.

Chemistry in Ancient EjrypU
The priests of Thebes and Memphis
made great advances In the knowledge
of the art of extractiag ir.etals. of forming
alloys, and of making ressekand tools out
of them. They distinguished crude gold
from refined Rold, nud could work that
metal up intc a variety of articles. They
fed tho hope thnt they might be able to
obtain it by coloring a&emcn or silver
yellow. Of the latter metal they made
money, the value of whicn wa guaranteed
by an impressed image. They extracted
gold and .silver from clectrum, a mineral
containing both substances, but which
presented to their eyes the appearance of a
metal like them. This was what led them
to the notion of transmutation.
The F.gyptians designated as "chesbet"'
several kinds of blue or green sapphires
colored with cobalt or copper. They made
incrustations, amulet, necklaces and vari
ous ornaments of them. They succeeded
in compounding an artificial "cheslwt re
sembliugthe natural utone. A fact worthj
ot remark in the matter is thnt this was
done by "the assimilation of a colored sub

Mr. and Mrs. H. E. Reiser went to
church Sunday evening, leaving in the
charge of their wn, a lad about 16 years cf
age, a 3-year-old baby. Like mo.tboys he
eventually got tired of his task, and put
baby to sleep in the cradle while he went
up the street. The parents returned home,
and finding that their son had deserted bis
charge determined to give him a scare.
With this end in view they tore up pieces
of red cloth and placed them around the
babyS neck and on its hands, and then up
set the chairs and othernstj disarranged
the house and hid themselves.
The intent was to causo the boy to think

"Would you please give a little assist
ance to a poor woman that hasn't had a
mouthful to eat since yesterday morning?"
lne speaker was a woman not younger
than 25 nor older than 45, but it would
have been difficult to make anything like
an accurate guess at the ace ot the un
kempt and bedraggled creature that stood
before the little group whining out her pe
tition for alms, which seemed to have so In
grained itself into her speech that it would
hare been difficult to have imagined her
giving forth anything beyond that dismal
Her face, that once might have been fair
and girlish, was coarse in feature, and al
most devoid of any expression save that of
stupid, callous mendicancy. Her eyes,
that still retained something of that deep
blue of the midsummer sky, were bleared
and watery and half shaded with swollen
and inflamed lids that still showed a deep
silky fringe of golden lashes.
Beneath the tattered and soiled mop of
lace which she wore over her head and
shoulders, after the manner of a mantilla,
two or three little faded yellow curls were
peeping out in strange contrast with the
furrowed and weather beaten forehead,
over which they seemed inclined to stray.
A SAD FICTURE.
Her dress was soiled and tattered, her
small shoes were discolored and bicken in
many places, and her hand3 were hidden in
the ragged mantle of dirty lace which they
held in place upon her head and shoulders.
She waited, staring stupidly at the trio for
a reply, and as none seemed inclined to
give one remarked (as if to excuse himself
for giving nothing) that he thought sha
was more thirsty than hungry after all.
"Like enough yer right," she remarked
carelessly, turning away as if to quit the
store, but when half way around she hesi
tated and cast a longing look at a huge,
old fashioned grand piano of Continental
make, which had just been tuned and put
in order in the storeroom before which she
She looked intently at the piano for near
ly a minute, while her back was turned to
the group, and then facing about toward
them, with a softened look in her face and
a curious, nervous huskiness in her voice,

They were not long in doubt. As tho
woman seated herself at tho piano the dirty
mop of lace fell from her shoulders and re
leased a tangled mass of faded yellow hair,
which still rippled and Hashed in tho sun
light as itstreamed over her shoulders and
down her back.
Her hands, which were now seen for the
first time, wero small and daintily formed,
and except that they were not quito freo
from grime, and that the nails were far
from being tidily kept, they would have
readily passed for those of a high bred girl
of 20 who had always lived a life of easo and
luxury. These trifles surprised the gentle
men; but though they wondered at tho
change wrought by the fall of the old wrap
they were lost in amazement as the dainty
but grimy little fingers struck the first two
or three chords with a touch firm, master
ful and yet delicate.
Then the little fingers wandered swiftly
about among the keys as if in search of a
theme, and then with infinite pathos
breathing through every note came tho
plaintive aria from "II Trovatorc," "Ah, I
have sighed to rest me."
Not a sound passed tha motionless but
Bllghtly parted lips, but the coarse, hard
lines in the discolored face seemed softened
as if by come miraculous transfiguration,
the watery mists seemed to pass from tho
azure tinted "eyes, and as tho notes rang
out a theme of immeasurable melancholy
thoso kindling eyes seemed speaking every
thought in Maurico's despairing wail.

thing seemed to call her back to herself,
and stopping as suddenly as she hnd com

and prepared to go. A small collection
was made for her from the little crowd
that had been attracted by her plnying,
and as this was handed to her she thrust
it into her pocket with tho same callous
air with which she had first asked for alms.
The evanescent reflection of a pure and
happy past flickered and went out of the
faded, weather beaten faco as suddenly aa
it had come there, nnd in a minute more a
blear eyed and bedr&jtfcled woman was
drifting out upon the street to beg from

Democrat. The Supply of Statural Om.
Professor McGee, of the United Stat

supply of natural gas. "It will fail; it may
be a long time yet. but it will surely fall."
This opinion appears to be very suegest
ttvely put. All wells that have ben
heavily drawn upon for a period of three
or four years have gradully diminished in
pressure. Some have become ueleM.
Others have become almost wholly ex
hausted, but after being uecurely cloned
they have recuperated until they hare be

before. The supply can bs no buiibanded

fact that wells can be so managed point
to the inference that there Is continuous
