Trilby Dante In Hnre Feet.
Ilero is how August Van Cleef writes up
Mollie Fuller's Trilby dance, which rise first
gave in Nebraska recently:
"iliss Mollie Fuller's appearance as Trilby
at the. Iiijou Theater in the second act of
The- Twentieth Century Girl is one of the
features of the piece in. New York. The
house is darkened for a moment, then a
figure draped in white darts across the
stage, and there Is a patter of bare feet.
The- lime lights are turned on and their
jlare reveals Miss Fuller standing on the
winding stairway in the rear, posed a la
Trilby. wJth her right foot extended, one
step higher than the other. Her white tulle
fcklrts fall scarcely to her ankles and reveal
several Inches of bare flesh. She wears
neither shoes nor stockings, and there is a
chorus of murmurs through the theater.
"Mls Fuller has pretty feet not too
small, but graceful and well formed, and
r.ot marred by a single protuberance, si
far as can Je seen. Long blond hair falls
over her shoulders and her heavin chest
as she sings the sweet words of Thomas
Dunn English's old ballad, revived by Lu
Maurier, Dont you remember sweet Alice,
"When she concluded the ballad last night
there was an uproar of applause. The lights
were lowered for a second and were then
directed toward tno middle of the stage,
and Miss Fuller stepped forward to the
square of carpet. Her body swayed, her
skirts were slowly raised and then her feet
shot upward. The tulle was draped to the
top of her knees below that point her
limbs were freo and bare.
"The dancer twisted from side to side In
the sensuous mazes of the skirt dance.
Then the music stopped, and" the enthusl
tic plaudits were renewed. Mies Fuller
paused on tho cold boards to bow again and

Formed Reticence of Those Who
Between fifteen and twenty wholesale
butchers were closeted for nearly three
hours at the Grand Hotel last evening. The
greatest secrecy was maintained and not a
man present would give an intimation of
what was done or considered. Several men
from out of town were present. A. E. Glas
gon, manager of the Nelson Morris com-
pany, acted as chairman of the meeting.
After the meeting those who had been pres
ent took a great delight in evading the
questions asked them. One member laughed
when questioned and said they were think
ing of holding a banquet. He winked as
he spoke and the butcher who received the
benefit of the wink, said there was a con
vention of batchers under consideration.
"When is 'this banquet and convention
to be held," was asked.
"The public is not interested in that,"
replied one man and the crowd shifted its
It was rumored about the hotel that tho
purpose of the meeting was to form a com
bine and adopt a scale of prices to be
charged retail dealers. There has been con
siderable competition In this city and State
for some time. Some of the local butchers
are not charging the same for meats as
are the firms which have branches in this
city. During the "past week the dealers have
also felt the effect of a sudden rise and fall
in the price of beef and it is said that some
of them lost. Report has it that the meet
ing last evening was for the purpose of ad
Justing a uniform scale of prices.
"What was the purpose of the meeting?"
was asked Mr. Glasgon.
"There is absolutely nothing to say," he
"Was not the price of meat considered?"
. "Why should it be?" replied Mr. Glasgon
"Meat has been high In price has It not?"
"Yes, but you know it has fallen."
"Was not a uniform scale of prices con
sidered?" "There not a thing to say about the
meeting. We did nothing except to talk
over a few matters and we reached no con
clusion. It was simply a meeting of a few
Interested in the business." Among those
who were interested and present was,
Samuel Rauh, president of the Moore Pack
ing Company. His presence would indicate
that not only the beef men were interested,
but also those interested in pork.

WILL ELECT IN JUNE
DEMOCRATIC TIUSTEES CONSPIRING
TO DEFV THE SEW LAW.
Attempt to Choose Connty Superln
temlenta Before tv Repnillcnn
Trustees Take Office.
There is little doubt but the county super
intendents have cast aside the nonpartisan
garb which they pretended to wear while
begging the Legislature not to change the
time of electing county superintendents,
and banded together for the puropse of
keeping In office. Notwithstanding the
Legislature had the right and did change
the time of holding elections the superin
tendents from all Indications have outlined
a programme whereby the Democratic trus
tees are to re-elect superintendents in June
and thus give them an excuse to hold to
their jobs. The Information is that the
Democratic superintendents propose to have
themselves continued in oflice and then
hold on with the Democratic tenacity and
fight the new law in the courts.
It will be remembered that the Demo
cratic superintendents came before the
Legislature at the last session and claimed
there should be no politics in offices and
that they were not partisan office holders
In any manner.' Numerous letters and tele
grams received at the Secretary of State's
office asking for information as to the pro
visions of the law, state that it is the in
tention of the Democratic trustees to elect
In June and there can be no doubt but the
movement i3 a concerted one. The law
changing the time of election to September,
after the trustees elected last fall take of
fices, is as follows:
"Section 3. Be It enacted by the General
Assembly of the State of Indiana, That Sec
tion S3 of the above entitled act. being Sec
tion 4124 of the Revised Statutes of ISSt,
be and the same is amended to read as fol
lows: Section The township trustees of
the several townships of each county shall
meet at the office of the county auditor of
such county on the first Monday of Septem
ber, eighteen hundred and ninety-five, and
biennially thereafter, and appoint a county
superintendent, who shall be a citizen of
such county, whose term shall expire as
soon as his successor is appointed and
qualified, who. before entering upon the
duties of his office, shall take and subscribe
an oath that he will faithfully perform
his duties as such officer according to law,
which oath shall be tiled with , the county
auditor. He shall execute a bond, with
freehold surety to the approval of ihe
county auditor, payable to the State of
Indiana, in the penal sum of one thousand
dollars ($1,000) conditioned that he will
faithfully discharge his duties according to
the law, and faithfully account for and pay
to the proper persons all money which may
come into his hands by reason of such
office; and thereupon the county auditor
shall report the name and postofflee ad
dress of the person appointed to the Su
perintendent of Public Instruction; Pro
vided, however, that the Board of County
Commissioners shall have power to dismiss
any county superintendent for immorality,
incompetency, or general neglect of duty,
or for acting as agent for the sale of any
text-book, school furniture or maps. But
no county superintendent shall be dismis
sed without giving him written notice under
the hand and seal of the auditor, ten days
before the first day of the term of the
court of commissioners at which the cause
Is to bo heard. But the said notice shall
state the charges preferred against the
superintendent, the character of the instru
ment in which they are preferred (whether
a petition, complaint, or other writing), and
the names of those preferring the same.
The duties required by the school examiner
by any act, shall hereafter be performed
by the county superintendent. Whenever
a'vacancy shall occur in the office of county
superintendent, by death, resignation or re
moval, the a!d trustees, on the notice of the
countv auditor, shall assemble at the bffice
of such county auditor, and fill such va
cancy for the unexpired portion of the term
In the manner herein provided; and that
countv auditor shall be clerk of such elec
tion in all cases, and shall cast the decid
ing vote In case of a tie, and shall keep
the record of such election in a book to
be kept for that purpose.
"Section 2. Whereas, an emergency exists
for the immediate taking effect of this
act the same shall be in force from and
after it3 passage."
By open defiance of the law the Demo
crats propose .to gain possession of about
seventy county supeumtendents offices of
the State. The trustees in office at present
are mostly Democrats, but thoso elected last
fall are Republicans. The Democratic
trustees go out of office before September
and the Democrats intend to' elect superin
tendents before they leave and then con
tend for their position in the courts. The
point to be made against the law Is that
Section 33. which is amended was amended
out of existence by the. act of March 8. N
187.1; that it became Section 2 of that act
and therefore could not be amended as Sec
Republican county superintendents are
somewhat confused by the attempt to set
aside the law and they are uncertain
whether to have their trustees assemble
in June also, and elect or to let the Demo
cratic trustees of their counties meet at
that time and elect Democratic superin
tendents, the Republican trustees not par
ticipating. MR. KRTC1IAMS CIRIOSITY BOX.

The Attorney-general is asked to answer
all kinds of questions. Hardly a day passes
but some question Is received by him
through the mail. Many persons seem to
think that the Attorney-general's office is
the proper place to which to refer all legal
matters. In the mail yesterday there were
two inquiries made by citizens living in
different parts of the State. One of the
"Sir We have a dam that is six feet
and a half at Lawrenceport belonging to
John Reed. Why Is it that we cannot nave
a fish lader sufficient to let the fish over?
Our trustee has been notified over a year

know what proceedings to pursu to get a
lader there this is dam is on the east tork
of the White river."
Another citizen of the State, who probably
pnvs taxes and in a way helps to pay the
salary of the Attorney-generai, sent the
' "Sir Will you please answer mc in re

Statehnnne Clerka Photographed.
"Every day is Sunday to us," said a clerk
in one of the offices of the Statehouse a
few days ago. Then this clerk went on to
say that all days wcre not Sundays while
the Legislature was in session, but since
that body adjourned it has been very dull.
The regular routine work with occassional
visits from sight seers is all there is to
break the monotony. But new life has en
tered the hearts of the clerks and stenog
raphers within the last two days for the
members of the force have had their pic
tures taken. The operation was the cause
of a great deal of merriment and yesterday
when the proofs arrived the youn women
and men who are employed by the State
had "a picnic," as one of them described
it. They gathered around the proofs, mak
ing comments and laughing at the many
poses and now they feel as if they had en
joyed their vacation. One young lady re
gretted exceedingly that she could not have
appeared in the picture in her bloomers.
It is proposed by the clerks to have the
group enlarged, that is the photograph of
the group, and donated to the collection in
the State library.

Lilian Bell, a young Chicago woman, who
gained some literary celebrity a year or so
ago a the author of a'.1, clever little story
called "The Love Affairs of an Old Maid,"
has written another novel to which sho has
given the name "A Little Sister to the
Wilderness." This is also a clever story
and also a more ambitious effort than the
first. The attention of the reader is held
from the first in ?pite of certain extrava
gances of expression and strained situa
tions. Tne faults of style are probably those
of youth. As the writer gains age and ex
perience she will not, for Instance, have a
heroine who is "a human sensitive plant
an inarticulate soul endogen." The love
making of the hero in the finale is also of
a very feminine sort. 'It is not a real,
everyday man, but a prig who proposes to
tho woman of his ch,?i telling her, I
only need your hand 1A mine to make my
whole life stretch out before me, glorious
in promise." The book is issued in hand
some stvle by Stone i Kimball, Chicago.
In the preface to "At Market Value,"
Grant Allen frankly confesses that he
writes novels for the approval of the Brit
ish matron and tho perusal of the young
person. There is nothing of "The Woman
Who Did" in this work. There Js a social
istic Earl, who deliberately disappears from
society to earn his own living. Of course he
finds a young woman who can love him for
himself alone. He does not go back to his
native position, but makes himself famous
by writing a book as' marrr another novel
hero has done and they live happy ever
after. F. Tennyson Neely. Chicago and
New York, publishes the story in a well
printed paper edition at 50 cents.
It is probable that A. Conan Doyle's
"Mystery of Cloomber" was written at an
earlier date than bis "Sherlock Holmes"
stories, for though that' personage does not
figure in this book the character of the
tale suggests him. and certain peculiarities
of expression and style create the suspi
cion that this was a preliminary study of
that part of the community in which de
tectives nourish., lie dips into the occult
here, however, and does not explain bis
mvstery on the practical Holmes basis. Is

FOR WOMEN'S READING
3I0ST DISTINCTIVE PART OF DHESS
IS TUB LITTLE ACCESSORIES.
Feminine Energies Wasted on Trifles
Core for XerTOuaneaw Domestic
Endearments Odds and Ends.
The distinctive feature of the season's
fashions, says the New York Sun, aside
from the elaborated sleeves and wide, plain
skirts, is the craze for lace and all sorts
and kinds of showy ornamentation in jetted
and spangled trimmings of brilliant color
ings and Persian bands of numerous soft,
pubdued tints woven together with charming
effect. Added to these is tho universal use
of white and cream tints on dark as well as
light dresses. White, in some form, has be
come almost a necessity to the success of
the gown, from a fashionable point of view,
and whether the wide bertha collars of
muslin and lace are becoming or not, you
must have them.' White silk an3 satin are
generously used for facings, linings, revers,
and collars on dark blue and black cloth
gown?, and almost every gown has a touch
of white somewhere.
Never has there been such a variety in
the accessories of dress, and although there
is a discouraging amount of expense con
nected with their use, it is these fanciful
touches of color and contrast which are the
most tempting things in fashion and the
most useful, too, in renovating old gowns
to an up-to-date appearance. All sorts of
laces, both real and Imitation, are formed
Into quaint, old-fashioned bretelles, berthas
anl collar, but the prevailing fancy is for
narrow Valenciennes lace anl insertion,
which are used unsparingly on gown?. Filk
waists and chemisettes. i. is cheap, dainty
and effective, and, like every other fad of
fashion which is within reach of the many,
it promises to be short-lived. Tiny rushes
are made of the narrow cresm ede by gath
ering it quite full and putting two rows to
gether, and these put on lengthwise are a
stylish trimming for black and colored silk
waists. Three, four and sometimes five
rows are used at the back and in front,
and a pretty eftect is given by ending
them with little rosettes of lace Just above
the line of the bust to form a yoke. Ssviss
lawn, and cambric dresses are lavishly
trimmed In this style. A pale-yellow Swiss
gives a pretty example. At the bottom of
the skirt are two fouidnch ruffies, the up
per one made with a heading anl overlap
ping the other, and narrow white Valen
ciennes is sewn on the three edges. The
wai?t is like the old-time Spencer wain,
gathered slightly Into the belt, but first the
Swiss is tucked up and down in groups of
three narrow tucks, with space enough be
tween to admit of the edging, which is
slightly fulled onto the first tuck of every
group, making six rows of lace In the hick,
meeting in the center, and eight in front.
The waist hooks on the shoulder anJ under,
the arm, and the sleeves are made with
full, large puffs at the top, and rows of
tucks and lace from the elbow down. The
collar, the belt with a bow at the back, and
tho bows on the shoulders are of white
Any attempt at a full description of the
chemisettes and blouse fronts made of ba
tiste and trimmed with this lace is futile,
for there is no end to the variety. There
are rows of fine tucks alternated with nar
row insertion and edged with lace, insertion
set In diagonally, lengthwise, and straight
across without tucks or edging, and Inch
wide horizontal tucks with inserilon be
tween and edge gathered in each tuck. At

the prevailing style. They were made of taf

Kissing; One's Husband.

It should be as delightful as kissing one's
lover. Yes, if anything, more delightful.
But I really think that a much shyness
ought to surround the delicate custom
after marriage as during the intensest sea
son of love making.
Perhaps I am peculiar, but I dislike most
heartily to be made a witness to fond
greetings and partings, even though the
honeymoon ha3 not yet waned. It is bad
form to enthuse at any point in life, and
the gushirg husband and wife always send
cold chills careering down my back. I
feel so fcolish for the unlucky pair.
They are unlucky. Anyone is who is m-t

1 have seen husbands and wives who would
never allow each other to leave the hause
without a fond cares', yet who would snap
at each other at the slightest provoca

and yet he would let his wife waltz all
