The Novel Feature Gowns.
Some of the most charming and popular
dresses of the season are what might be fit
tingly exiled "feature gowns." That is,such
as include the most striking and artistic
features of those that are pronounced renais
sance. For example, here is a gown worn by a
woman of perfect taste recently returned
from Paris. The material is of soft, flexible
cloth in crar warmed by an ecru tint The
sleeves are of the pronounced Empire sort,
close along the lower arm and with full
puffs along the shoulder. At the band it is
slashed about four inches and faced with
satin. The upper part is turned back from
the arm and the lower part down on to the
hand. About the shoulders is a broad,
frill-like cape of satin and at the waist-line
is a narrow satin cincture. The skirt is cut
with a demi-train and at the foot is a nar
row satin ruffle headed with a thick cord of
the same material nearly an inch across.
With this are worn red shoes and red stock
ings, and altogether it is a very chio and.
A Fetching Felt Sat
under the raised brim a beautiful bow of
velvet is placed which fastens an ostrich
leather and an aigrette of fancy feathers.
When it comes down to facts, the general
character of hats for early winter has not
changed materially as worn on the street.
Everything is only a little more so than
last summer, that is alL I reallv think the
millinery windows are intended assort of
liberal educators for us to study the styles
in. The majority of buyers look with awe
and some envy the hats on the "figures,"
but they end by getting their own idea of
the mode, and it is framed upon what they
actually see worn. The orchid-dragonfly
confection that poUes on a brass candelabra
in a milliner's window is a vision to behold,
but not to be worn.
For trimming the large felt has, the long
Telvet bows will be found simply invalu
able. Thev can be bought at the stores,
and will form quite a sufficient trimming in
themselves for many of the shapes now be
ing worn. An exceedingly pretty bow is
made of coque feathers in various shaded
colorings, with a tall osprev in the center.

Patrol Wagon No. 3 Wins the Frlze, but the
Others Aro Not Satisfied.
Considerable interest was displayed in
the inspection of police patrol wagons yes
terday. Except that City Hall was closed
and the officials were taking a holiday, the
inspection was the only municipal recogni
tion of the day. Two wagons from each po
lice district were in tho line drawn ujj In
the Central station yard. Mayor Gourley,
Chief Brown and Police Superintendent
O'Mara officiated as judges. Several hun
dred people witnessed the proceedings.
The judges critically examined the appear
ance and condition of wagons, harness,
horses and men, and then unanimously de
cided in favor of the Twelfth ward station
Gourley presented the winners in
the competition with a handsome gold han
dled whip. It was donated by Joseph
Loughrey. The Mayor, in a brief speech,
complimented all the competitors, selecting
companies 1, 3 and 7, in the order named,
for special praise on their appearance. T.
J. Morlev. one of the men on the Twelfth
ward wagon, received the whip in a well
timed speech, in which he claimed Pitts
burg's police patrol service unexcelled in
the United States.
Some bad feeling exists as a result of No.
3 company getting the prize. Inspector
McLaughlin, of the Second district, and
Captain Stewart, of the Third, were each
confident they would win, and the spirit of
competition was so strong that various offi
cers in the Second and Third districts
wagered money on the result After the
judges had decided they were inconsolable,
and at last accounts were talking ot a com
petition of their own for a purse subscribed
by all who may enter.

While on her way to market at 5:30
o'clock yesterday morning Mrs. Mjnuie
Stoltz. a middle-aged woman living in
Snowden township, met with a sad acci

She was driving a wagon containing a
quantity ot produce which she intended to
deliver at the South Twelfth street market
and in crossing the car tracks at Thirteenth
and Carson streets the wagon was struck by
car Xn. 30 ot the Birmingham Traction
The force of the collision threw Mrs.
Stoltz from the seat into the body of the
wagon, where she lay unconscious for a few
moments. On being removed to a physi

had sustained a severe injury to her spine
irom wnicn she may not recover. J.he in

Guitars as Photograph Holders.
,The banjo and guitar craze is about over.
In many homes lie banjos, guitars and man
dolins unused and neglected. They are too
valuable to give away and they are too
obtrusive in tne odd nooks and corners
where they are stowed. "What shall we do
An ingenious young woman has answered
the question. She hung her guitar on the
wall and transformed it into a photograph
holder by twisting and turning the strings
so as to form loops and receptacles for her
favorite pictures Of course the inevitable
bright blue how is conspicuous, and ribbon
of a terra-cotta shade on the handle of the
guitar gives a contrast in color that is ef
fective. The young woman who uses gold paint
will be sure to guild the musical photo
graph bolder she will make upon reading
this, but it looks prettier as it is.
Magee sent nord to Mrs. Tucker, the Oak'
land manager of the Society for the Im
provement of the Poor, who has had com
plete charge of Mrs. Tracey, nursing her in
her sickness and troubles and providing for
her when she was well, that she would
dtfray the expenses ot Mrs. Tracey across
the water. An order for a ticket for New
York was obtained from the Department of
Public Charities, and Mrr. Magee donated
S35 for the balance of the expenses. A
ticket aoross the water was purchased tor

expenses, and M0 was put into a draft sub

After providing her with warm clothes and

THE DACIAN VIRGIN.
BY CARMEN SYLVA
Her Majesty the Quees op Eoumania.
At nlcht by the light of the moon, the
imposing form ol a virgin strays with un
certain steps along the Danube's bank.
She wrings her hands as she enters the
water high up to her aist in quest of a ford,
by which to pass over to the opposite side,
while she raises her voice In lamentation,
thus: "Do you not see that I have taken
the last soldier from the recent battle, and
that I must cross over? Oh, foaming waves,
suffer this the last warrior to escape to the
opposite bank, so as to be sneltered from
the fury of the enemy, Let the bride pass.
Show me the Iprd that I may not sec the
Roman hosts trample on my dead. Let me,
O Danube, cross thy gory waters."
Thus wails tho virgin the long night
through, wringine her hands in despair,
while the waves of the broad Danube flow
on unceasingly, mighty and iuerciles in the
lieht of the bright moon, which looks calm

and a sigh rises irom the breast of each, for
the leather indicates "the Romans are com

Council leans upon his shield, his eves

pressive of grave thought, while his long
locks of hair, black as the raven's wing,

it is who takes a reed and casts it down
near to the eagle's leather, his lips com
pressed with scorn. "The leaves of the reed
indicate the Romans, for they are loqua

these warriors points toward the Danube,
which is visible glistening betwixt the gl
gantic trunks of the trees, takes a tus of
water therefrom and pours out first drop,
then a larger quantity, until at last the
whole has gone out like a rapid stream,
which hursts its bounds, spoils and devas

priestesses serving the altar, they perform
their self-imposed task. The sun is now at
its zenith, and comes to redden the beauti
ful cheek of Sola, while a glittering heat
drop purls down her brow, fair as drifted
snow, on to the crisp black curls below. At
length the silence is broken, and the clus
ter of maidens burst forth into song as they
burnish the arms of their heroes. Their
clear notes are heard afar.
"Sweet river, uoble river, with thv soft
streaming waves, I have seen thee person
ified in a dream, under the figure of a war
rior surrounded by his host. Thou hast
raised thy lance, Jhou hast set out for the
great battlefield. My dream is a bad dream,
yea it has lied to me, tor thou keepest
watoh and guard no longer, no more thou
opposest thy strength against thoie who as
sault us. My arm is raised against them in
vain. Oh, river, river, help us to check
these hosts. Or, if thou art afraid or faint
hearted, rise up and swallow us, that we
may be at peace, whilst thou roll'st on un
feeling, unflinching, on over our young
bodies, as thou drownest our cries and
bearest awav our lamentations."
" i .
What is tllis noise heard in the forest? Its
depths resound with the footfall of thou
sands of men and horses, and with the clang
and clashing ot arms.
The virgins riso in wonder, and with fixed
gaze look onward into the distauce as far as
the eye can penetrate; but the forest seems
to De unpeopled, ana the bints are even
asleep on this sultry day. The strange
muffled sound draws nearer, and with it the
mysterious, invisible host.
Then Sola, mute and pale as her snowy
vestments, raises her arm'and points with
it toward the right bank of the Danube
where the dust as if from hundreds of flocks
rises to the heavens, and through it is seen
glittering the steel of the helmets and the
points ot the lanoes, as they appear and
vanish like lightning in black clouds.
The forest rings wth a loud clamor, and
then conies a fainter din from the opposite
bank, where on the heights above & multi
tude of workmen are hammering and cast
ing and riveting around he fires which
they have kindled and where their furnaces

On that side of theDanube the hills, the
plains and forests all seem to be alive with

proaches them. Sola is ereot and Impas

girl signs to her that the warriors are wait
ing for their arms, which are ranged on the
sandy shore. Then does Sola arouse her
self, and turn her steps in that direction.
Nando has been long standing, half bid
den behind the trees. He looked neither at
the Ramans nor at their bridge of boats, nor
thinks he of the peril which threatens his
people. His eyes are steadily fixed upon
upon his arms. Is it Sola who has washed
and cleaned them? Was hers the last hand
that touched them after they were polished?
He seizes hold of them rapidly, treading in
the footprints - that are still warm from
Sola's charming feet.
But Sola advances cold as snow on the
peak ot the highest mountain, snow which
the heat of a July gun is powerless to dis,
solve. She does not turn to look back,
once only does she raise her bands above her
head, let them fall again gently by her
side, and steps rapidly onward. She
is as the spirit of the night, the evening
zephyr, soft, and cold, and flett.
Nando clasps his lanco with passion to his
breast and kisses his trusty shield, as if ho
knew that it had refleoted her fair

Have the waters of the great Danube
grown red? Seems it that lountains of
blood have been poured therein? Is it
filled with troops of soldiers? Even the
very waves seem calmed, for the river is
laden with trunks of trees, so many trees it
may be that a whole forest has bowed be
neath the ax. Now the air vibrates with
cries, and the rays of the sun be
gin to be felt. The bridge is still
there, and horse and foot pass over ant
like in multitudes.
The Dacian host is scattered and put to
rout, but it collects its remnants togethsr,
sueni. anu steaaiast lite a rock ot granite,
on the border of the forest.
Nando is borne along on a litter of
branches, bleeding from his numerous
Sola stands mutely by, she seizes the long
tresses of her hair and beats her breasts
three several times. Nando, vanquished
by pain and loss of blood, closes his eyes,
while the warriors bow their heads In sor
row and despair.
But the Dacian host has rallied,
their wounds pre healed, and Sola
cuts of the thick meshes of her
raven hair and binds them on to
the point of Nando's lance, where they
float In the wind, like an oriflamme gilded
by the sun. She bids him go and savs:
"you lead to victory and glory, for of a
truth glory and conquest have been vouch
safed to the Daoians."
The Romans are routed, and Nando,
beaming -with happiness, comes joyfully
toward Sola, strong in his pride, and bear
ing aloft the oriflamme whioh he had re
ceived from her hand, and which had in
deed been of miraculous service. "Sola,"
ho asks, "to-day jtro I worthy of thee?"
She raises h,cr baud, and in silence holds
up three extended fingers. The multitude
is moved to compassion. Great heroes
throw themselves down at her feet; women
implore her to yield to Nando's prayer; old
men entreat and even threaten ner In the
same breath; all gather round the virgin,
but their efforts are in vain. She shakes
her head, and does but repeat, "After the
third battle. 1 say; then will I fix upon mv
choice, " Speaking thus with a constrained
voice, she turns proudly away and disap
pears within the darkness of her tent

their overwhelming forces the Romans have
again entered the country. They overrun
ana devastate it like a flood, which in
spring is charged with ice blocks, and
melting carry all before them. Even like
as to a whirlwind which careers madly
throueh the forest, uprooting trees, twist
ing them and bowing them to the earth.
The Dacians stand firm of foot, but seem
ingly all is lost to them. Nando Is magnifi
cent; his oriflamme,' steeped in blood,droops
from his lance like the autumn moss from a
monntain pine. His breast is laid bare by
a fearful wound, and from it the blood
wells forth in purple stresms. At length
he falls to the earth, but still defends him
self with his upheld sword. "Oh, Sola, my
Sola, come near to me," murmur his pale
lip "Sola, come nearer."
From the thickest of the fight she still
watches his oriflamme, sees it being gradu
ally lowered, and at length lying prone.
She hears the warriors in their death throes
calling, "Sola, Sola." With her arms she
makes a passage through the throng, and
reaches Nando'at last; be is stretched pow

they hear these terrible words, and a cry
like thunder rises from among them.
