Among the girdles of tho moment are
those of cloth of gold, embroidered In
silk Mobs in small designs, the color
of the embroidery matching that of
tho frock with which tho girdle is to

has a deeply pointed girdle in cloth
of gold, embroidered with small fleur-de-lis
in palo blue silk. A sago green

silver-gray is suitable for slight
mourning. The fashionable brown,
now callod mordore, is also represent
ed, and there aro two good shades of
royal blue and a rich poppy rod. Tho
white silks arc suitable for children's

lwJ 1mL I A
ON HOW TO GET RICH.
Since some of our very rich men
hnvo taken to public discourse upon
all sorts of matters their utterances
have somewhat diminished their repu
tation for Infallible wisdom. It has
been discovered that a man may pos
sess great wealth and still fail of
complete mastery of the sclonco of
govornment or tho principles of po
litical economy. Nay, it is evident
that such a man may not oven prove
a roliablo guide to tho Inquirer who
seeks for the road to wealth.
Ono of tho most didactic of our
vivacious millionaires has recently de
clared that riches are within the
reach of every man who wishes to be
rich. He asserts that there aro but
two requisites for the acquisition of
wealth moderate intelligence and un
limited industry. Given these, he de
clares that any man can get lich.
Which is, of course, entirely false
and misleading, oven though it comes
from a gentleman who has piled up
great wealth and is now engaged in
piling up free libraries. Everyone
knows that intelligence and industry
aro not the sole essentials to the ac
quisition of riches. Everyonb knows
of men highly intelligent and thor
oughly industrious who can scarcely
make a living.
It is true that intelligence and in
dustry aro qualities favorable to the
attainment of wealth, but it is not
true that tho possession of those
qualities, even in tho highest degree,
constitute any assurance of riches.
The money-making faculty is a
thing apart from other natural endow
ments. An ignorant, illiterato man
who possesses It will get rich, and
Intellectual gonitis without it will re
main poor all his life. Like a gift for
music, it can bo cultivated, but it can
not bo acquired. .
Tho sayings of our loquacious mil
lionaires, liko the aphorismB in the
copybooks, will not always bear analy
sis. In tho present instance tho fal
sity of tho proposition is evident to
everybody, since a vast majority of
tho people, though they are intelligent
and hard .working, never acquire so
much as a modest competence, let
alone wealth. Chicago Record-Herald.
WOMEN IN GERMANY.
Tho movement in Germany to open
tho doors of tho universities to wom
en has failed in its chief purpose,
but it has led to something. Girls
aro to be admitted to tho classical
schools preparatory to tho university
as an experiment, but there is a posi
tive opposition on tho part of tho gov
ernment to a classical training for
women. Instead, and "to maintain
tho ideal position of German women
in tho home," tho instruction of girls
in tho high schools is to bo hotter
adapted to domestic requirements.
That la to say, tho ambitious young
women aro to be taught the art and
science of 'cooking and of household
work generally. Tho minister of in
struction does not seem to bo im
pressed by tho arguments in favor of
erudlto women, but ho has a lively
sense of tho importance to tho coun
try of general good cooking. Phila
LIMIT OF LAWYER'S DUTY.
A lawyor has no right to do any
thing as a lawyer which ho would
scorn to do as a man and a citizen,
His obligation to tho court and to the
public is and must be paramount to
his obligation to his cllont. Unless
this 'Is recognized the lawyers would
be tho most dangerous class in the
community, Indianapolis News.
"No personal accounts, largo or
small, wanted hero; wo do business,
only with laigo corporations." This!
was the reply tho president of one of
the $25,000,000 Wall streot banks gavo
to an inquirer as to tho minimum de
posit thnt institution would accept.
It was a notification that this was dis
tinctly a ,( wholesale bank." Such
an answer would not have been made
five years ago. But this is a now age.
Tho billion-dollar trust and tho $25,
000,000 bank aro to Wall street what
wireless telegraphy is to electricity
wonders. Tho vast demands of mod
ern industry, often requiring tho nego
tiation of a loan of $5,000,000 upon a
few hours' notice, with frequent calls
for stupendous accommodation from
transcontinental railroads or syndi
cates financing foreign, government
bond issues, have called into being
these now banks veritable incarna
tions of power, holding, indeed, the
safety and happiness of a people in
their hands. Saturday evening Post.
THE CZAR'S PRIVATE FORTUNE.
Many newspapers havo seriously re
produced a telqram which appeared
in a Paris journal announcing that
tho Emperor Nicholas had presented
his privato fortune, amounting to
eighty millions sterling ($400,000,000)
to tho Russian government for war
purposes. It was added that this huge
sum stands to the credit of tho emper
or in a bank of a country not friendly
to Russia. Eighty millions would bo a
pretty sort of a sum to be held nt
call by any 'bank; but tho whole story
is a romance, and so are all the other
tales about the emperor's dealings
with his civil list. The fact is that
the emperor of Russia has no civil
list, and ho draws at his discretion on
tho imperial treasury, every rouble
of which is supposed to bo his prop
erty and absolutely at his disposal.
CURBING TREE BUTCHERS.
It is satisfactory to note that public
oplnidn iss being aroused on tho sub
ject of tho wanton destruction of
shade trees by tho servants of tele
phone, telegraph and electric light
companies, who aro sent out to string
wires and who carry the implements
with which to make short work of a
tree which they deem in tho way of
their operations. Such outrages aro
usually committed when thoso able
and willing to protect trees are away
fiom homo. Protosts from women
count for very Httlo, and tears for
even less. Against subsequent suits
for damages tho companies are well
fortified. If a valuablo tree Is onco
spoiled what its owner can recover by
a suit at InAV would not trouble any
one. Chicago Chronicle.
COST OF INSECT PESTS.
The extent of damago dono by in
sects which prey on tho agricultural
interests of tho United States is but
little appreciated. Twelve bugs, ac
cording to reliable statistics, do an
estimated damago to farm products of
$303,000,000 per annum. Tho chinch
bug heads tho list, with $100,000,000
a year; grasshopper, $90,000,000; Hes
sian fly (a reminder of tho revolution,
since tho mercenaries hired by King
George brought its eggs over in tho
straw for their horses), $50,000,000;
cotton worm nnd lioll worm (cotton),
$25,000,000 apiece; cotton boll weevil,
$20,000,000; San Jose scalo, grain wee
vil, apple worm and army worm, $10,
000,000 apiece; potato bug, $S,000,000,
and cabbage worm, $5,000,000. Al
