THE PITTSBUKG DISPATCH, WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 14, 1892.
NEW SCALE" KIMBALL PIANO.
s.-e.ji -i -. n
I bare sketched for to-day a dainty capote
of dark green Telvet and passementerie.
The velvet is in a double row in Iront, and
rests upon abroad band of passementerie,
or, it yon choose, of gold lace fluted, with
an aigrette and ostrich tips at the back.
I 6avr a very dainty little bonnet for
Tisiting or evening wear, of velvet in paje
mustard yellow. It had passementerie in
dark green silk and gold tinsel applied on
the crown, and the same passementerie
fringed with crystal beads in emerald and
gold laid over the brim. There was a half
A Green Velvet Canote.
Inch border of sable fnr on the edge of the
brim, and trimming of a bow of narrow
dark green lehet ribbon supporting a pair
of ram's horns of rifle bird feathers, re
lieved with celatine jet scales posed on the
top and strings of the ribbon.
Another little capote intended for visit
ing and evening wear was ot velvet in a
livelr tone of watermelon pink. It had
ilic brim bordered nith a narrow band of
able fur, a bow of brown velvet ribbon
supporting an aicrette of wired jet on the
top, and triugs set at the back of an inch
wide velvet ribbon: an.l a little bonnet of
tu'qunie-blne velvet is trimmed with an
Alatian bow of sealskin supporting a
jelled brown wisp of aigrette.
Here is one more model for the month.
The crown is draped with velvet in strong
ro-e pink and brim of cophitura plumaze,
trimincil with Irish cut lace, a bow of the
lace on the top confined by rhinestone
buckle, holding a whip of cophitura feat'i
ers, aud narrow black velvet ribbon strings.
Some Afternoon Uouse Drrssrs.
The writer calling upon a pretty woman
the other afternoon found her in a remark
ably smart gown, which she was rearing
for the first time. It was a curious irock,
too. vet revealing method in the madness of
fashion for combining two or three colors.
The bodice was plain, as close-fitting as a
jersev and made o! an exquisite shade of
old-roe cloth, while round the neck were
shaped bands ot black satin studded with
jet and outlined with black and gold braid.
The sleeves were of black watered silk of
the old-fashioned kird, and the skirt was of
pale-grav cloth, bordered round the hips
and the hem bv the black satin trimming
studded with jet and outlined with gold
Pa'e-tan and brown and black would be
an effective combination, handled in this
way; violet, black ami gray would be an

which is very eflective for this purpose. It
is well to have pretty stylish gowns for
house wear, as it ruins a street costume to
lounge about in it indoors. There is no
more comfortable nor picturesque house
dress for young girls than a, black ski it,
made with a fair amount of fflllness at the

belt, finished with a rosette at the side.
Tlie Latest in Underwear.
The knitted silk underwear is always
most desirable on account of its warmth
and light weight. The cream tones are
leaders, while the pale color tints of blue
and pink are popular. Kight robes of
white and pale-colored wash silks are
trimmed with silk embroidery and lace.
The princess chemise has gained a prestige
for itself after long rivalry with the corset
cover, in place ot which it is frequently
used. It is trimlv fitted, curving at the
waist, low in the neck and with shoulder
straps instead of sleeves. It is made with
tinv lengthwise tucks, which may be
alternated with insertion. The neck mar

A pretty petticoat is of white cballie
with red berries and olive leaves upon it.
It is finished with a deep flounce, which is
trimmed with Valenciennes insertion and

soft black silk with a flounce of vellow silk
overlaid with black lace, which lias a head

I shall never forget the pantomime sea
son of 1886. It was biilliantly successful.
Managers vied with each other who should
produce the finest spectacle, and no one of
them spared less expense than Mr. Drnm
mond, of the "Ariel" theaterin Silverpool.
He had secured one of the best pieces.and
engaged all the prettiest women he could
lay hold of. Silverpool, being an important
seaport town, full of visitors as well as
residents, his house was crammed night
after night, and his pantomime, "The But
terfly's Ball" was pronounced by the press
to be one of the best ever produced.
The first time I Eaw Cissie Stanley, and
heard her sing, I was not surprised athis
success. She was just the very prettiest
girl I had ever seeu. She possessed a rich,
lull voice, as sweet as a thrush singing in
the early morning, and her dancing was one
of the most uonderful things I had ever
witnessed. When she ran on the stage,
ith two enormous transparent wings at
her back, dressed in a light costume
made to imitate the body of a butterfly, and
executed a pirouette which almost
seemed to keep her quivering id" the
air, she did not appear to dance so much as
Well might she have been chosen for a
butterfly! It was her very nature to be
frivolous and unthinking and careless. But
she might have spared poor Edmund Grey.
She and he and I lived in the same house,
and soon grew to know each other well. We
were much on a par in the company; I fill
ing the part of the Fairy Queen, and Ed
mund that of the Butterfly Prince's rival
the ungainly Toad. Often have I pitied
the poor young man in the arduous task he
had undertaken. He was not strong. Hi
limp, thin hair, pallid face, and attenuated
body all spoke of a weakly constitution. I
have seen him ready to faint in the course
of the performance as he lilted the huge
Toad head for a few moments, to breathe
the air and wipe away the perspiration
that streamed down his features. But he
would never spare himself. He was verv
clever, and he liked applause, for Citsle s
sake, if not for his own, and neglected no
means of gaining It
For he was deeply and ardently ia love
with her from the very beginning, and she
encouraged his admiration. Sometimes I
remonstrated with her on the subject. I
saw how much in earnest Edmund was, and
bow little she cared for him. But she
always laughed at me and mv sermons. Mr.
Grey understood her perfectly, she affirmed.
He was not such a simpleton as I took him
for. He knew it was a pleasant acquaint
anceship and nothing more. If be really
thought it would end in anything with a
shrug of her pretty shoulders well, ho
must be a goose. She had had downs of

such affairs. All girls did, and it would be
a very dull time it she had no one to walk
to ana frpni the theater with her, and carry
her bags and parcels, aud be at her beck and
call from morning till night.
Meanwhile, the other artists, even down,
to the supers, all spoke of Miss Stanley
and Mr. Grey as "epgaged," and 110 one
who had seen them together could have
thought otherwise. He became her ery
shadow her slave. "While she went through
her performance he used to stand at the
wings, his pale iace uncovered from the
Toad's mask, his deep, earnest eves fixed on
Cissie's graceful figure, as if his gaze was
glued there. When she sung lie hung
breathless on her notes. "When applause
succeeded her efforts his thin hands always
added to it.
When he was not on the stage with her
he stood and looked at her, and as soon as
the performance was over he hurried away
to rid himself of his cumbrous attire in
order to be in readiness to escort her home.
Every available spase behind the scenes
used to be filled each evening by the yonng
gentlemen of Silverpool, forMrDrumraond
regarded suchtnings with a strictly business
eye, and permitted any license within
bounds that brought "grist to the mill."
Tie boards of the Ariel Theater was rather
a dangerous place, therefore, for young
women who were disposed to be careless
and I often watched Cissie with anxious
eves, but Edmund never seemed to concern
himself in that way. He was too deeply
engrossed by bis love for her and his belief
Xaturally, everyone wanted to be intro
duced to Cissie. The press had lauded her
talents and appearance to the skies. She
had become quite a notoriety in Silverpool,
and the visitors daily disgorged by the
Atlantic steamers frequently spent their
one evening in the toun in seeing "but
terfly" as Cissie was generally called.
Kd vonnp ladv ronlri h more tiartienl&r
with her admirers than she was at first, and
as I believed she would continue to be. Not
that I thought she was in earnest about
Edmund Grey. Truth to tell I never
thought her in earnest about anybody, and
no more she was, until Lord Philip Free
land came upon the scene
Why are women so fond of a title? Why
are they flattered by attentions from a lord
which they would disclaim from a com
moner? What is there in an empty handle
to a man's name to make him any the better

disputable fact that a title will gain consid
eration. Lord Philip Freeland was an
empty-headed young iooL His father had

W. W. KIMBALL CO., CHICAGO:
Pittsburg, Aug. 2, 1892.
Gentlemen I have examined several of the Kimball
Pianos, and am free to admit that, after a thorough test,
and that through a careful analysis of the scientific as well
as artistic requirements of a first-class modern musical in
strument, that the Kimball Piano possesses them all to
the highest degree of perfection. It appears to me that in
addition to a number of new and excellent things, which I
have never seen in any other instrument, Mr. Kimball has
sought out the best points of modern mechanism, and com
bined them, the result of which is the truly artistic piano
which bears his name.
Yours truly, (
Prof. Bissell purchased one of the Kimball Grands, and under
date ol December 4tb writes as follows:
'The Kimball Grand Piano purchased from your house recently
has been in dailv use in Currv University, and am pleased to admit
that it has proved to be an instrument of superior excellence in tonal
qualities, which are characteristic to pianism. It is also much ad
mired by the pupils ot the University.
Yours truly, SIMEON BISSELL.
Pittsburg, Aug. 4, 1892.
W. W. KIMBALL CO., Chicago:
Dear Sirs It will give me great pleasure to recommend your
pianos to all mv friends who may be looking for a good instrument
I have tried a number of them and am satisfied that the treble in
particular is superior to any upright piano I have yet tried, and for
purity of tone throughout I have tound them the equal of any piano

FOR THE "KIMBALL PIANO" IN PITTSBURG AffD WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA
the scenes of a theater, still seemed to Lord
Philip to make up the sum total of exist
ence, and as he had an ample allowance he
generally contrived to do as he liked. When
he had seen our pretty butterfly, and iound
he could gain access to the green Toom, he
stayed in Liverpool for that very purpose.
At first we by we, I mean Edmund and
myself looked upon Lord Philip's atten
tions to Cissie as we did on those of her other
admirers. We did not even know he was a
lord He was aTery ordinary and insignifi
cant looking individual, and did. not appear
either brilliant or agreeable. He came be
hind the scenes every evening elaborately
dressed in the latest fashion, with a diamond
so!itaire,a crush hatja laultless button-hole,
and his hair parted in the middle. He spoke
with a lisp and a languid drawl, and was, in
fact, like all the other fools who frequent
snch places. But when he appeared in the
same place every night and spent all his time
talking to Cissie.when he begnn to bring her
flowers and bonbons, we could not help ob
serving him; and one evening I put the ques
tion to her:
"Who is your friend, Cissie?"
"Lord Philip Freeland." she replied.
"What a fool he looks?" I remarked.
Cissie drew herself up with an assumption
"He is the son of the Earl of Warden,
and he has any amount of money, so I beg
you will speak of him with a little more
respect," she said, as she moved awav. I
laughed at the airs she gave herself. Very
shortly Lord Philip became more bold and
pressing in his attentions. He even waited
at the staze door one night, and soon as
we appeared he started lorward and offered
his arm to Cissie to escort her home. She
accepted it she, who had never failed to
walk home with Edmund Grey before.
Then I thought it was time I should speak,
for I was looked upon as a kind ot chaperon.
I did not say anything till we reached our
little apartments, when I saw that Lord
Philip made as though he would enter
"Excuse me, sir," I said, placing myself
before him, "but we cannot have the
pleasure of asking you in. It is very late
and Miss Stanley and I make a point of
never brinzing anyone home to snpper."
"Tndeeil. Per-wans to-morrow' mornins.
then, I mav call and see you," he replied.
've are not m a pusuiuu w ici-cive visi
tors at any time," I said rather curtly.
"Our rooms are very small, and not such
as you have been accustomed ta"
"Oh! ah! weallyl I shouldn't be wel
come, I perceive. Well Miss Stanley, I
must sav au revolr till to-morrow evening
when I shall have the sdowable pleasure to
see you fcgain," said Lord Philip, in an
"Oh! my lord," cried Cissie,."! am so
' "It is exceedingly awkward, but Miss
Mail! aud plays dwagon to you and won't let
me In. Never mind. Iwill see you again
to-mowwow. Good night." And ignoring
Edmund Grey and myself in the rudest
manner, Lord Philip Freeland squeezed
Cissie's band and walked hastily away.
We passed into our humble apartments a
verv discontented trio. I could see that

down with pouting lips to the snpper table.
As for Grey, the lamplicht revealed bim to
be white as death. Murmuring some excuse
about a headache, he said he wanted noth
ing to eat and took himself off to his own
room. I was too much annoyed to trust
myself to speak at first, but when we were
alone I could no longer keep silent.
I reproached her for ber folly in en
couraging the attentions of Lord Freeland,
whose object, I assured her, could not be
matriniouv; whereas Mr. Grey, who really
loved and would gladly marry her, was
evidently deeply hurt at her flirtation with
the brainless young aristocrat.
She passionately resented my remarks
and mv interference, and demanded my
reasons" for refusing to believe that Lord
Freeland would propose. She was sure
that he was deeply in love, and reminded
me that many stage artists had married
into the aristocracv.
As to Edmund Grey, whose cause I
pleaded earnestly, when I referred to him
Cissie colored deeply. She knew perfectly
well what I meant, though she obstinately
pretended not to do so.
"I don't understand you!"
"Cissie! that is not true. For the last
six weeks you have let Edmund Grey be
lieve that you favored his suit- You have
accepted his attentions and his presents. If
not actually engaged to him, you'have let
the world think you were. Are you going
to throw him over now?"
"Certainly not. There is nothing to
throw over. Mr. Grey is ray friend, and I
suppose he will continue to be so."
"You are playing with me. Yon know
that he is more than your friend; that he
is deeply in love with you. You have seen
it and encouraged it, and if you jilt him
now I will not answer for the conse
quences." Cissie was silent, and I went on:
"Edmund Grey is a genius with more
brains in his little finger than that idiotio
lord of yours has in his whole body, and
geniuses are more sensitive than fools. If
you do this thing you will cut him to the
very soul perhaps spoil his whole life,
and the sin will lie at your door. And
when you have wounded him, will your
fine lord marry you? Not a bit of it! He
will insult and leave you, unless which
God forbid! he drags you down with him."
"You seem to know all about it," cried
Cissie, pertly, as she leit me and ran up to
I was afraid my remonstrance had not
mended matters, and the sequel proved it
Lord Philip was in his usual place the fol
lowing evening, and a few davs afterward
as Mr. Grey and I were walking quietly
together, we met her.all smiles and blushes,
promenading by his side. Edmund did not
remark on the occurrence, but I saw his

is very thoughtless, but she
means no harm," I said. "Her head is
turned with the flattery she receives, bnt
her heart is in the right place."
"I hope so," he replied, and then I knew
his eves were as open as my own. He spoke
to Cissie for the first time after this encoun
ter, and there was a quarrel between them.
She was unhappy about it as well at him
