thereupon denounced her for speaking dis
respectfully of Emperor William. Trcad

It Is Easier to Look Cool Than

"The French window is gaining in
favor." says a newspaper. Every sum
mer the French window becomes morepopu
lar, eery winter IhmU and blows its
good n. une. It is not so wanna window
as the ordinary lifUng sash with a storm
window like a coat of mail outside. That
is granted. But except in the coldest
weather, how many are its exccllcnclcs
No poor maid is forced to risk her life
on a precarious stone sill, to wash it,
the tnn glass doors swing back into tre
room are the most easily cleaned. In
oiimmer it admits t nieces mucti air as

is dainty and pretty. Indeed, the only

BT THE SAD SEA WAVES.
Aliibel Wliy. Grace, where did you jret your bathing unit?
Grace Madolt out of unold Columbian IKiMago stamp. Jolly cute, Isn't lt7
struck by the exquisite summer gowns
that th' ladles wear. They have learned
the art of comfort in clothes as well as to
nuke the clothes beautiful.
In the Nortn we are learning. Wc do
not yet appreciate the grace and the
comfort of wrappers, not only one, but
many wrappers. And we do not realize
how infinitely comfortable and adaptablo
are the pretty sacks called matinees; we
depend too rnuchon tho shirt-waist for
coonless and comfort; dainty BackF, rujs
tcrlous with ribbons and lace and fanciful
are quite as cool as the spirt, and much
more femlnino. The fancy bodice, which
may be regarded as the butterfly emerging
from tbc crjsalis of the simple rhirt waist,
is' a beautiful creation; but it Is not cool,
it is only cooler than some other things!
South, they have another advantage over
the North, as a rule, in city or country;
they wasn out of doors, making much less
of an occasion of that weekly rito of
purification. The Southern dressmaker's
wash gown is a simp'e affair within the
grasp of the talents of Aunt Chloo or Annt
Betsy, when it comes to be washed; but
the Northern wash gown is an awesome
spectacle for tho borne laundress; and if
she essays washing it, tho chances are it
is a more awesome spectacle afterward to
its owner. Nothing is cooler, running more
comfortable to wear or moro charming to
.co than a dainty fresh wash gown; but
nothing is less attractive tnan a wash
gown so elaborate that it cannot be washed,
et is in crying need of ccap and water.
COSTS TO BE CLEAN.
If one really thinks about it, bosr insen
sate and cruel 1b our demand that tbe poor
b-i clean! Cleanliness is tbe greatest lux
ury in tbe world and one of tbo most ex
pensive We should rather be grateful to
tho poor, If tlusy are not obtrusively dirty,
and be thankful that we have enough
money to .be clean. It has always setmed
to ma a dark dispensation that the'thne
of tbe year whon it is wannest and hard
est to wash, and Iron, there should be the
most washing; and ironing to do! And
tbara seems no way oat of the problem,
except to cngajre extra maids to waso I
always admired tbe housekeeper who
said, "Nov I am not going away this sum
mar; I am coing to hire an extra maid and
have all the washing done, instead, for
the first time In my life. I have never
ben (is clean as I want to be in summer;
but now I shall Ik and I know I Etiall enjoy
it more than a trip to the seashore."
For the sako of the maids it is a very
good thing, however, to take a vacation.
They are human and they like s break in
the monotonous treadmill of their duties
ns much as we like It in our easier and more
varld life. They will sere us the better
for it afterward.

should not lie for every term, but certain

Eggs, so much better thanmeat In summer,
can be cooked in an infinite variety of
ways, fish can lx fried or broiled (more or
less butter makes the difference of course,
you can't broil In a chafing dIMi, but )ou
can sautec so cleverly as to beguile the

to the usefulness of this shining little
And it Is pleasant to observe tho widening
made by it of the avenues of usefulness to
man. It is my priIIege to know several
men who cook like great chefs. They cook
only a few tilings, it is true, but no artist
could do those HUngs better. AVc come to
perfection, we can come no further,

Her Last Suitor.
Belinda Warren was a disappointed
woman. Her sole aim in life bad been
marriage, and she bad cot attained to it.
And so it was she had reached tba-nge of
forty-five, wUb wintry-looking carls and
a lined forehead, and was still a maiden
There was one man of her acquaintance,
Sir-David Daniel Warrington, who washer
particular ideal, and she did cot despair
of enthralling him. True, he was twenty
years her Junior, but that was nothing now
adays. Bo she twisted bcr balr into a wonderful
frlsurc and went to receive. Dear Bir
Daniel, whose Interesting- conversations
wc-o wch a delight to bcr be must stop
to a cosy cup of tea.
And he pressed her hand and be talked
about bcr niece, Miss Blanche Wawen,
and asked her how long she would be
away surely they-ovould not stop after
April, and ttcy were well Into Mari.ii
now and what sort of a place was Cannes?
And wjicn he got home and was turn
ing over the papers In his pocketbook
he remembered the photograph Belinda
had given him, and he stuck it absently
I upside down on bis mantelpiece and drew
back the little silk curtains that covered
a porcelain .portrait on an easel, and
gazed into the smiling face with rapturous
She was suih a merry little coquette!
She had put him off when hi- would have
spoken, gone away to the south without
even telling him she was going. And tet,
who but himself could call the lovely blush
to bcriheeksand the light to. her eyes?
So he hoped, and so he longed, nnd went
agnlnand again to see Belinda furany scraps
of news she would give liini. And when
shcktnrtcd for Cannes, lie went tosec her off,
trying to make up his mind to send Blanche
a mcs&age.and ending only In pressing Be
linda's hand nnd asking for her address.
But when she arrived at their hotel she
found to her consternation that they had
left for Nice. She arranged to stay a few
nights at Cannes to get over the fatigues
of her Journey.
Audit was well she dld.forthemornlug
she wh leaving the post brought a letter
that made her hands tremble to open.
It was addressed to "Miss B. Warren," and
she thought it wes so afrecting of him to
have remembered the initial or her Christian
Yes, sure enough, it was an offer of mar
riage from Sir Daniel VEaxrington, and she
smiled all over the exaggeration, "You
seem to hate been away a lifetime."
"You dear old thing! What's his name?
And what snail I wear at the wedding?" ex
"But, Blanche, I I haven't accented him
yet. Would you help me to write the letter?"
That was delicious, and the merry g.'rl
penned a passionate answer, not delighted
solely in the fun of It, for a sudden wistful
feeling came over her that she would like to
have written herself like that to"
"Now.then, dear, for his name?"
But, Willi an old maid's Ioo of mys
tery, Belinda caught up Blanche's Ut
ter and went away to copy it.
Bir Daniel Warrington wondered at
tho cramped, curious, old-fashioned writ
ing of his beloved, but he kissed the living
words, and began a daily, hourly letter
to her. These epistles were read aloud to
Blanche, and she always penned the an
swers. When Warrington reached the hotel at
Nice he found the Warrens had gone for
an expedition, but Miss Blanche Warren
He sent up his card and waited in nerv
ous anxiety. But she did not keep Llm
long in suspense: the door opened, and she
came dancing toward him with blooming
cheeks and sunny eycs.auda glad welcome
In her voice.
"How glorious of you to come!" she
said at last. "I can't believe it is true,
but I knew you loved me, only I wanted
to prote It, and that's why 1 wouldn't
let you speak that night; but I have wished,
and wished, you had done so."
"But, love, we have our love letters."
"Letters! What letters?"
"Tnere,"he said, with equal astonishment,
taking a little bundle from his breast pocket
and put I In; them In her hand.
She gazed stupidly al her Auut Belinda's
writing, recognized her own sentences, and
th!u she bu rsl into a mad laugh.
"She never would tell me his name. Yon
you have been making love to Aunt Belinda.
Oh, what shall I doT
Hotv they evergol over the embarrassment
history does not state. But poor Belinda
that she might keep HirDaulcl Warrington's
love letters nntil after the marriage.
"It has been the one romance of my life,"
she Baid. "Never mind if it was all a stupid
mistake on my part; I had the enjoyment
while it lasted." London Tfews.

All this was on. Sunday afternoon
proverbially a dry time in the newspaper

the shadow was cast -by a cloud with a

discovered that a man in San Francisco

Hawaii to restore the ex-Queen, loot all the

Voorhees For the Bench.
Editor Times: I am not usually tempted
to lay aside important business to give
prominence to men whose object is to seek
notoriey. But as there was such a desper
ate effort lu one of the local papers this
week by Mr. John II linn Voorhees, I think
it would be a pity to bavc him fad in his
attempt. Then, again. It would look, too
cruel to force such a bard subject on the
good doctor this warm weather.
Mr. Voorhees Ray that the statement at
tributed to Chief Justice Tanner: "That
the negro bas no rights which a white man
is bound to respect," is a vile slander,
but he says that it has been repeated since
it was dclnercd by the chief Justice. If
it was a slander, why did not the chief
Justice refute it? Why did he die under
such an unjust charge? If be thought
It wise not to notice it, why did not some
of his associates deny it? If Mr. Voor
hees was so much grelved about Uie mat
ter, why did tic wait until UiL late hour
to relieve himself?
But he says only ignorant enthusiasts
have repeated the slander. I suppose he
defers to colored men. Hon. Frederick
Douglass, Bon. John M. Langston. Hon.
B. K.Bruceand a host of others toonnnierous
tomenllouall belong to tbe set of ignorant
cutliuslasls, according to Mr. Voorhees.
He says it is not expected that every man
should be familiar with the decisions of
the Supreme Court- Of course not. He
has a monopoly of that business. . The In
come tax people will never forgive them
selves for not putting their casein his hands
iustead of fooling with such men as Ed
muuds, Choale and Carter, it pains us,
very much to know that Uie President
overlooked tins great "light" in selecting
his Attorney General.
I beg to suggest to bis Excellency the
President not to consider another name
in connection with the Supreme Court
vacancy, but to appoint Mr. John Hunn
Voorhees to the position without delay.
I do not enjoy the distinction of being
personally acquainted with Mr. Voorhees
but I would judge- from the proximity
of his residence to the bathing beach that
he should be able to keep cool this weather.

to employ rockets to warn ships when on
dark nights there are evidences ofapproach
