A BARRIER BETWEEN THEM.
Hostile Neighbor In Africa Who Hit
Established a Ko Man's Land.
A little British expedition recently
steamed far up the Benue branch of the
Niger river in a small steam launch, and
finally entered a tributary of the Benue
and explored a region which no white
man has ever visited before. The most
interesting thing about their journey
was the curious experience they had
with the natives.
They had been passing for a good
while through a region that was inhab
ited by Moslem blacks, fruits of the
rather severe methods of conversion
employed by the Arab invaders of the
Soudan. The country was very fertile,
and the people were numerous; but
jill of a sudden, though the country still
wore its usual aspect, and the soil was
apparently rich, population entirety
ceased. For a stretch of over twenty
miles not a hut was to be seen, nor was
a single sign of human life anywhere ob
served. The expedition wondered at
this remarkable state of affairs, for the
country was certainly inviting, and they
could not imagine why it had no inhab
itants. All at once, however, as they rounded
a bend in the river they saw big crowds
jf natives running down the slopes of
the hill to the bank. They brandished
their spears at the white men on the lit
tle boat, and told them to go back, for
they wanted no Moslems in their coun
liy. There was an interpreter on the
vessel, who succeeded in convincing the
natives that the visitors were not Mos
lems, and thereupon the people became
Then the reason for this cursous lack
of population was ascertained. When
the tribes who had been converted to
Main found the natives near thein were
just as strong as they were, the spread
of their religion in that direction ab
ruptly ceased, but these heathen people
said the Moslem converts near them
could not live at peace with one another.
It was finally decided that as they could
not bo good neighbors, a stretch of
country should be placed between them
where no one should live, and in that
way they expected to get along with
So nil the people who inhabited this
fertile region, about twenty utiles wide,
packed up 1 heir little belongings and
moved away, and the stretch of country
thus came to bo without a single inhab
itant. Today it is a No Man's Land,
and the only reason is that the people
who aro neighbors there cannot live on
friendly terms, and. having tired of
fighting, have put this barrier between
them. Boston Herald.
Freak of a Somnambulist.
A young man who is well known in
this city had an unpleasant experience a
short time ago. He is a somnambnlist
and often does peculiar things in his
rieep. He went to visit somo friends in
Waterbury, and as ho was not in the
habit of retiring as early as the members
of the family he was visiting, he re
mained up and took his shoes off before
ascending tho stairs.
A few nights after his return to his
home he lay down on a lounge and fell
nsleep. After sleeping soundly a half
hour he arose, walked to the foot of the
stairs, took oil his shoes, and not being
rontent with doing that, he drew off his
btockings also. He then clambered up
stairs to his room. Taking a match from
his pocket he brought one of his feet up
60 that he could reach the bottom of it,
and then deliberately scratched the
match on the flat surface.
Tho match did not light immediately,
but he kept on scratching. Finally tho
match did light. The holder wsis uncon
scious of tho fact and kept on scratch
ing. Saduenly ho awoko in great pain
from tho burn. He limped about for
Mvenil days, and since that time ques
tions about the proper mode of lighting
a match have been distasteful to him.

Honors to a Dead Dog.
I saw a queer corpse in the undertak

WOMAN'S WAY IN CHINA

New York, Oct. 6. There is no reason
why American women should not borrow
fashions from the far e ist ns well as from
London and Paris. Worth and his imi
tators may be tho exclusive masters of
style, but they know little of ease or com
fort. In fact the mrdistes of the Old

never called upon a Chinese or Japanese
lady with whom I was on terms of inti
macy but what I coveted some if not all
of her wearing apparel. In their bou
doirs they are pictures of physical content
Oriental clothes and it is true for both
men and women are based upon absolute
common sense. In the first place, the
waist is never constricted. The corset,
stay or tiht fitting garment is un
known. A woman can cat and drink with
out feeling uncomfortable, and can stoop
and touch her toes without difficulty. As
a consequence slie enjoys a health and
strength that affords an unpleasant con
trait to what is enjoyed by her more civil
What is of almost equal importance is
that the clothes of women in the cast hang
from the shoulders. There is little or no
weight upon the waist or hips. Even wheu
a belt is worn it is almost always a loose
girdle attached to a robe, somewhat simi
lar to the silver bolts worn by our girls
two and three years ago. In many cases
the girdle is permanently affixed to the
dress, aud is practically a portion of that
garment. Mrs. Jenness-Miller in her most
imaginative moments has never devised a
more hygienic artioloof raiment than that
worn by the wealthy women of tho orient.
Outside of the sanitary value of eastern
clothing it has the additional excellence
of beauty, richness and elegance. I recall
a visit to tho wife of one of tho richest
Chinamen in southern California where I
was allowed the privilege of seeing a good
part of her wardrobe. As with us her un
dergarments were made of the finest silk,
but were sewed aud not woven, and the
threads instead of being .stiffened or glazed
were left in their natural soft condition.
Whether it was the nature of the raw silk,
or of some process used in the manufactur
ing, I cannot sny, bnt the undershirts felt
as 60ft in my hands at the finest woven
English merino. Over this she wore a
gown, which was held by shoulder straps,
leaving the arms bare, and being cut down
a reasonnble length both in the front and
back. It was brought inclose to the figure
at the waist by darts, and came to a little
below the knees.
The material was a pale pink satin,
brocaded with figures of a slightly dif
ferent hue, and embroidered upon the
shoulder straps, around the neck, down
the front and around tho bottom. The
embroidery was done with silk floss of dif
ferent colors and gold and silver bullion
thread, and was made to represent vines
interspersed with blossoms. The flowers
that were yellow in part or whole had this
color represented in tho gold, aud those
which were white in silver. The gown was
strong and durable, vary light and loosely
enough woven to allow the air to blow
through it. Over this was the outer gown,
which was shaped very much liko a New
market, with the front flaps turned back.
The collar was a rolling one, quite deep.
DRESSED FOR AX OSTiyO.
The sleeves were remarkably large and
roomy, and finished vith cuffs at least
seven inches long, which when pulled
down covered the entire hand from view.
The material was a pale blue silk, heavi
lly brocaded, and faced upon the collar,
flaps and cuffs with u silk of a much dark
er blue. Down both fronts ran a line of
little silver buttons and buttonholes
worked in silver thread and surrounded by
silver embroidery, so as to give the effect of
two long hues of silver leaves. Around
the waist was a girdle, which came down
well in front, apparer tly made of heavy
cloth, but so covered with embroidery as
to conceal the material bsneatb. Attached
to the girdle were a lot of keys and trin
ket. Her stocking. Tere apparently cot
ton woven, like our cwn, un as far a the
ball of the ankle, at which point they wera
newed on to stiff black linen boards which,
for the lack of a bettt-r nirae, might be
called aukle cufft.
For state occasions she had a shawl
of white silk about six feet square, with
a fringe at leat a foot deep. The fringe
was knotted in very much the &rae
style a Maerame lace. Uxn the 'hawl
prop-rasa field was a quantity of em
broidery ot almost startling brilh&nry
The center figure rep7e.utd gily colored
birds making love, fiyin-r abont or feeding
their young, eich group of birds bcinj sur
rounded br a wilderaesi of leaves and
flowers. In tho four corners were Tour
dragons, In what to American eyes seemed
ludicrous attitudes. One seemed to be
smelling some floweraand sneezing over
them, a second was picking blossems, a
third was eating rosebuds and a fourth
was apparently settling down for a nap.
For ordinary occasions she had silk shawls
either plain or slightly embroidered and
of different thicknesses. One shawl was
so heavy that it was either padded or else
made of several thicknesses of silk.
These shawls are worn according to the
weather the light and dian'hanous ones in
the dog days, and the heaVy and padded
ones in the colder seasons. Besides the
padded shawl tbey use an ingenious gar
ment that we might almost call a padded
or fur lined wrapper. The padded ones
suggest the heavy blouses worn by well to
do Chinamen in December. The fur lined
ones are greatly like the fur lined circulars
which were in fashion a few seasons ago.
The Chinese use a larger variety of furs
and skins than the European races. They
not only employ all tbe furs familiar to
us, but go so far as to use the skins of pup
pies, kittens, rats, mice, lambs, kids,
squirrels, monkeys, yak and awrochs. In
fact it may be truthfully said that there is
hardly any animal, wild or domesticated,
but whose skin is employed for wearing ap
parel by the thrifty Mongolian people.
Feather trimmed garments such as were
worn by the Aztec nobles are not uncom
mon. Some other dresses that this Chinese
lady owned were what might be called court
robes, if women of that land were ever al
lowed in court society. In nearly all of
these garments the basis material was a
heavy silk of a bright blue, green, gold,
scarlet, purple or orange. On each was
embroidered a design so large as to cover
almost every spare inch of tho surface.
This embroidery coutained a large amount
of silver and gold, whic'i varied from about
one-tenth to nine-tenths of all that was
used. Onesuit consisted of three pieces a
cape, a vest and a skirt. The vest came
down very low in front, and was cut so as
to form projecting angles at the sides. The
cape was cut almost to the knee, and ter
minated in points which touched each
other in front, while the llaps at the neck
were about a foot apart. The sleeves were
cut like huge wings or safts, with a curv
ing flare from the shoulder to the end.
IN ROBES OF MOURXIXG.
The skirt was narrow rather than full,
and was gored at the back of the waist. The
embroiderer generally makes the embroid
ery correspond between the cape and the
skirt, and gives a smaller pattern to the
vest than to the other two garments.
These dresses are extremely expensive, and
cost in China from 40 to 300 taels, which in
our money would be from $30 to about
$400. With some of these court robes a
singular ornament is used in the shape of
shoulderattachments,w Inch givesn woman
tho appearance of an angel or n theatrical
butterfly. The favorite forms which are
used for these attachments are one or more
peacock tips flags, artificial flowers and
mounted birds. As these aro light and
easily stirred, and as every eastern woman
carries a fan, they make a very beautiful
picture when the ft.ns put the ornaments
in rapid motion. It is as near to a wind
stirred garden of natural flowers as any
thing that "an be imagined.
Another court robe consisted of two
pieces, the one a short shoulder cape and
the other a princess dress cut moderately
low in front, just reaching to the ankles
and running to a train about half a yard in
length. The cape, bleeves and dress were
cut so as to give the effect of sharp re-entering
No lady's wardrobe is complete in the
east unless it have an assortment of what
we call Turkish trousers. These fit quite
snug to the waist and the ankles and
are always loose. Where people aro
wealthy they are so bacgy as to be almost
laughable. I have seen several pairs, of
which each leg was two yards in circum
ference. Tho poorer classes make these
trousers out of cotton cloth or prints;
the well to do use various qualities of silk
and satin. They are extremely cool and
comfortable in summer, and quite warm
In tho colder part of the yaar.
When trousers are worn the dress skirts
are usually cut much shorter than usual,
so as to display tho lower part of the leg
from the ankle downward. On very gala
occasions the white stockings and ankle,
cuffs are replaced by those of fiucr mate
rials and far greater cost, the former being
made of silk, and the latter being rigid
boards embroidered in brilliant colors, but
in such tints and patterns as to afford a
bright contrast to the robes above it. The
sash is also used in the east, but is not so
popular as with us western barbarians. It
is generally fringed at the ends, and these,
as far as wealthy people are concerned, are

A blueffrass idyl has been circulating
through the Southern society for several
days. It is a tale of two KentucMans
one a major, the other a colonel who
determined to gratify an oft expressed
desire to visit 2Iew York. They came,
and after two days of sightseeing the
colonel suggested to the major that a
trip to New York would not be complete
without a dinner at Delmonico's. The
It was deemed that it would hardly b
considerate to take Mr. Delmonico una
wares, and in order to prepare him for
so unusual an event as a swell dinner for
two the Kentucky gentlemen went to
the restaurant early in the day, called
for the head waiter and told him what
they wanted. "Spare no expense," they
They dined at 6. It was a splendid
They called for their bilL The waiter
placed a check, face down, on the menu.
The gentlemen were toasting each other
as the waiter did this, and when they
placed their glasses on the table he was
gone. They saw what appeared to them
to be a scrap of paper on the menu and
brushed it off. Tho old fellows were
ignorant of the cuBtoms of French res
taurants, and they concluded that the
menu must bo tho bill. The colonel be
gan to figure up the prices. It seemed
that they had eaten a great deal, but the
names of the dishes were in a language
unknown to them, and anyway they
were not in a mood to bother about tri
fles. But the colonel gasped when he fig
ured up the total. It was $960.
"Great heavens, sah!" he exclaimed to
the major. "It is $960. If wepaythii
we can't get back home."
"We might," suggested tho major
faintly, "we might jump out of this
window and run."
"No, sah," said the colonel, bringing
his fist down on the table. "We are
Kentucky gentlemen, sah. We will pay
this bill, sah, and then, sah, we will
shoot tho landlord, sah." New York
lie Was Not a Canary Bird.
They were bride and groom, and she
was a guileless thing who had been
brought up in the mountains of Penn
sylvania. They had come to Atlantic
City on their tour, and like everybody
else took the trip down to tho Inlet,
from which all the sailing and fishing
boats go out. A party had just come in
with a pailful of crabs, and the old grand
father of crabs was on top cf the lot. Ho
was chagrined, mad, red hot and he was
aching to prove to the world that a crab
could die fighting.
This guileless bride had never seen an
ocean crab before, and she uttered little
screams of wonder . and delight. Nay,
more, she bent over .and lifted old grand
father up in her plump, white hand for
closer examination. His chance had.
come. He took hold. In one minute
her shrieks had assembled 500 people,
and ten seconds later sho fainted dead
away and upset her husband over a bait
box. A fisherman out with his knifo and
stabbed tho crab in the back and then
cut him loose, and a carriage was called
and the brido with the bleeding finger
was borne sobbing away, never, no
never, to pick up an old crab again to
see whether he was a butterfly or a
canary bird. Cor. Detroit Free Press.
She Swallowed liighty Pins.
Among involuntary gastronomic feats
the most extraordinary was that of a
young woman named Mary Spelmore,
who lived in St Peter's parish, Derby.
In the month of November, 1779, sho
was engaged hanging up linen to dry,
when some sudden emotion caused her
to swallow a small armament of pins
with which sho had stocked her mouth.
A surgeon was sent for, who did all in
his power for the unfortunate girl.
Though the retching was constant she
never brought up more than one at a
time, and in three days the total
amounted to seventy-six. Some of them
were very long, and her convulsions
were so violent that it took several per
sons to hold her. Shortly after entering
the hospital at Nottingham tumors
formed on the leftside-near th,o shoulder.
These were 'suppurated and opened and
several pins came out of the wounds. In
five months she was discharged cured.

Calculation on a Potato.
Did yon ever calculate the value of a
single potato on the basis that that single
tuber was the only one left in the world?
That one would, of course, contain with
in itself the possibility of restocking the
world with a valuable article of food.
If one potato would produce when
planted but ten potatoes in ten years
the total product of that one potato
would be 10,000.000,000. which would
stock the whole world with seed. If the
world were reduced to one single potato
it would be better that London or Chi
cago be blotted from tho earth than for
that one tuber to be lost. St. Louis Re

Better Protection for LsSters.
In a recent English divorce case it
was stated that a certain letter of an
eminently confidential character was
opened and read in the kitchen. The
simple procedure was to hold the en
velope over a boiling kettle and relax
the gum. That Bhould bo a warning to
everybody who does not wish his private
correspondence to become the talk of his
servants. The wonder is that so many
persons are contented with the modern
envelope. Made with thick paper and
bad gum, it often flies open even with
out the assistance of a boiling kettle.
