A few Silver articles give
an appearance of luxury and
refinement to a room
especially is this true of a
ladj-'s boudoir. Silver toilet
articles on the toilet table
seem to change the .-appearance
of the room altogether.
Solid Silverware is so
cheap now that almost every
lad can afford to indulge, in
some pretty trifles, whose
presence brighten up a room,
and even make life look a
a little brighter.

old Hartford, wb.lcb was Farragut'a flag
ship at tbe baUI,tf-Moblle, and which
Unoif being remodeleriat tbe Mare Island
yard, will, wbea in commission again,
prove to be one of tbe-most serviceable
vessels In tbe Navy.
Her boilers, machinery and batteries
will be of modern construction. 8ho will
be, to some teztent, a composite ship,
sincf-her -spar-peel, beams, batch combing
and hammock, waist will be of stceL The
purpose of tlio steel deck beams Is to give
greater space between tbe decks and add
to the' structural strength of the boat.

She willhajre a steaming capacity of 13
knots -an hour. 8be will be, moreover,
an economical vessel. In that. her hull.
being wood, she can be kept afloat indefi

The Hartford will carry a crew ot 250
men, and can be made available for any

In I'aclfic waters. 8he will be placed in

She would never come between a ton and
an unwilling mother. If there-jraa a wo
man to be alighted in each a case'ot three
let It be the old love, not the' new. She
presented sweetly the latest' Eastern colt
of mother-love and mother-woe Tand found
In John Graham a fatal chivalry which
consented to suffer, for her viewsand kept
her faithfully up to the strain of her ideal,
They bad loved too deeply to think their
affections could be satisfied elsewhere.
Like the rose and the trellis of an ancient
garden, they were inclined, yet not united
tbe victim of circumstances.
They walked past tbe Church of the
Ascension and noted the awning at tbe
door. A carriage laden to the roof with
flowers had drawn up to the curbstone.
"Pretty idea to have some flowers at a
wedding, Isn't it, Fatty?" observed the
lover. "My, what stacks ot them mother
could send from her own and her neighbors'
Virginian gardens this very month! Banks 1
ot wall flowers, button daisies, violets,
and daffodils! How well they Would look
in that quaint old church!" '
He looked at bis companion with a qtilzzir
calsmlle and sighed. A quiver of sympathy
touched her heart, but she crushed It.
"It may be, John," she answered; "you
are naturally foolish and cannot help It, but
I really beglu to think you need your moth
er's personal influence."
A new thought seemed to have struck
him, but she was absorbed in tho view
before her. The arch rose in the mist of
sunset, white and calm. Its sun flecks
gllsuning softly and cooling the sight,"
likesea- washed pebbles The square spread
its spring verdure beyond The evening
breeze moved the green grass gently till
It burned blue, and sent a refreshing
fragrance through the arch.
Martha Thrnnlcy wondered. It the bridal
couple, ot whom she had lieen vaguely
thinking, would pass under that appro
priate marble symbol. It appeared to
her worthy but" incomplete like her own
happiness standing lonely In the road
way and nppeultng for lines ot trees to
link Its lieaiily securely to the life around
It The bnusci of mediaeval New Tork
looked on soberly. She thought how she
would have liked to be fixed In their peace
ful respectability with tho staid compan
ion ot her choice. She was startled aa
tlie latter rejieated his question:
"Do you really mean what you said?"
"What have I said?"
"That I ought to be with my mother "
He was looking at her cheerfully, but
not joking She felt a sudden chill that
she was being made to swallow Ice of her
own manufacture, warranted of enduring
coldness, but she simply said.
"Why sh.iuldnt' you?"
They parted and went their separate
ways, as they had always done, on tbe
wrong side ot the arch uf triumph She
did not sec him again for days No call,
no note of appoi ntment , no message through

"doped." That Is to say that some drug
such as cocaine is administered to him,
either by means of an Injection or through
the stomach, that makes him wild for the
time being, nnd he runs much faster than
he would under ordinary Urcumstances.
When this is done a horse Is "doped."
A common expression which Is often
used on the track is when a horse is
spoken of as winning "bands down." Trans
lated Into English it means that he wins
easily, with the Jockey sitting still and
not making any effort to drive him or
hurry him np.
A piece of slang used In the ring is tbe
word "marker." This la not often heard,
however, as it is sildom that a man is
lucky enough to be able to bet a "marker."
The bookmakers use this term for an

sign which reads, "no markers taken."
By this they mean to say that they will
not take an I. O. U. or a promise to

There was more genuine excitement In
cotton trading this morniug than there
has been for the past month, owing to
the Government bureau report, which
was given out at 11 o'clock to-day.
It had been expected that the report
would show a general improvement in the
crop over last year of at least 2 per cent,
and an improvement also in the condition
of cotton in Texas. In this, however, the
bears were disappointed. The report was
a surprise to even the bulls, and the result
was a rapid rise In prices inrmediately
after the report was read. When the bears
heard the report tivey began to wover as
rapidly as possible. The market started
up several points at a time beyond the
opening figures, and business was brisk.
