Announcement Extraordinary !
CLINEDINST, The Celebrated Baltimore Photographer.
Having fully tested the merits of the latest Paris Instantaneous Process
and finding it far exceeding in elegance of results any of the old methods of
making sittings, has decided to make a specialty of this new and great im
provement in photography.
Having a member of our establishment now in Paris, we can assure our
patrons that we will be the first to give them all that is new and fashionable in
Our productions for some time have been made by this Neio Paris Process,
and has given such universal satisfaction that we have decided for the purpose
of introducing it at once to furnish (for a limited time) our artistic and ex
CABINETS AT $3.00 PER DOZ. Although ice furnish our fine Cabinets at J
such extremely LOW PRICES, we will aevote the same careful
attention as ice have done before.
Our Studio is the most complete and extensive establishment in the city
with skilled operators and the best artistic talent employed in every department.
The liberal patronage bestowed upon this house since our removal here affords
us ample evidence and sufficient encouragement to still continue in our en
deavors to merit the approval of an appreciative public.
CLINEDINST'S PHOTOGR VPHIC STUDIO,
477 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, D. C.
Among the advantages resulting to tho public by our adopting the Paris Process are :
That the sittings will be a pleasure instead of an ordeal; there will bo no tedious waitiug,no
unpleasant odor from Ether, Collodeon, or Chemicals; nervous people c--ui sit without ieel
insr annoyed; those who have weak eyes, light eyes or in any way difficult eyes to secure in
a Photograph, are, with this process, assured of sati&factory results, lic bus& merchant
and parties in office who cannot spare time,only early in the morning or late in ths afternoon
can now come and have sittings lnrfdc at a tirno when it could not be secured by the old
method. The lightning rapidity with which the exposures have to be made secures per
fectly natural expressions. Babies can be brought to the Studio without any fear of a
failure in getting perfect pictures. Cloudy weather as good as clear. Children's pictures
are now secured with absolute certainty. Call and see the beautiful display of work.

Tlie Utility of Neatness In Drew.
Neatness is, however, the great de
sideratum to economy in dress. If the
toilet is carefully made, the dress tidy,
well fitting and neatly put on, and the
collar or frill spotless, the effect can
scarcely fail to be attractive. To keep
garments fresh and and neat much
pains is necessary. The dress must be
brushed or at least shaken when taken
off, and be carefully hung up, not
tossed down on a chair or the bed in a
crumpled heap. Gloves should be
tenderly smoothed out, frills rolled up
and straightened and ribbons smoothed
over the fingers, tightly rolled up and
pinned with a fine needle; a pin is apt
to leave the mark behind it in un
A Charming Cnstom.
There is a custom prevailing among
the inhabitants of the Sandeman Isl
ands, which may throw a light upon
the civilized use of wedding cake.
When a native girl whose exceptional
beauty has brought her many suitors
is knocked down with a club and car
ried off by her accepted suitor, the
wedded pair, within forty-eight hours
of the wedding, send a cup of poison
distilled from the hulahulatreeto each
and every one of the bride's former ad
mirers. If any recipient feels that he
cannot become reconciled to the mar
riage, he drinks the poison and dies ;
but if he decides that he will survive
the loss of his intended wife, he throws
away the poison, and feels bound in
honor never to show the slightest sign
of disappointment. By this admirable
system the husband is spared the pangs
of jealousy, and be able to live on
friendly terms with the surviving ad
mirers of his wife.
Woman In India
A learned Hindoo lady, Pundita
Eomabai, who has devoted her life to
the promotion of female education in
India, recently aroused great interest ;
by a course of lectures in Bombay. She ,
is a widow and barely twenty-five years t
of age. Her lectures have drawn out
large numbers of Hindoo and Parsee
ladies, on whom she is already declared
to have produced "something of an
electric effect." She dwelt at great
length in the lectures on the benefits
arising from education and the im
portance to Women Of Cultivating and

it has not been the fate of Europe to
see for many a long day. If we want
to find his equal it is almost necessary
to go back to tho times of Charles
XII., for we shall not find him within
the limits of our conventional
teenth century. He delighted in battle,
yet confessed frequently that it was
not the bubble reputation, but a sol
dier's grave, which he sought at the
cannon's mouth. He went forth to
battle in his newest and brightest uni
form, mounted on his famous white
charger, and waving his white cap in
the air. Skobeleff was a wonderful
military artist. He must have studied
the soldier closely to have acquired so
accurate a knowledge of his heart. On
one occasion, at the third battle of
Plevna, he met his troops flying panic
stricken back to the camp. On seeing
him they drew up and saluted. "Ah,
my fine fellows," he exclaimed, "you
have fought like lions !" The troops
recovered their self-respect. Seeing
the effect his words had produced upon
them, Skobeleff pretended only to have
discovered that they were without
their muskets. "Where are your mus
kets?" he shouted. No one dared
answer. "Cowards 1 I do not want to
command such dogs as you. Come,
pick up your muskets and follow me
at once !" and, proceeding in the direc
tion where the Turkish fire was thick
est, he put them through their facings
as though they were raw recruits
drilling in the quiet back yard of a
provincial barrack. When they had
gone through their evolutions he led
them against the enemy, and not one
of them thought of running away.
Tangiers, JNorth Africa.
It was market day, writes a corres
pondent, and we made our way with
difficuly through the throng of women
and slaves, Moors, negroes, Jews and
Europeans the motley crowd of var
ious nationalities which makes up the
population of Tangiers. The extraor
dinary variety of types and shades of
complexion, even among the indige- .
nous population, cannot fail to impress
the traveler first setting foot in the
place. He sees pure breed Moors with
fine chiseled features and skins as
white as hi3 own; olive-complexioned
Arabs; half castes of every shade; ne
groes from Timbuctooand the Soudan;
Eiffians from their mountain fastnesses
to the east of Tetnan, resembling Korth
American Indians, with their shaven
crowns and long scalp-locks, by which,
it is said, Azrael, the angel of death, is
to pull them up to heaven on the last
day. These Kifilans are a division of
the old Berber race, the original inhabi-
tants of Morocco, or who, at any rate,
must be historically regarded as the
aboriginies of the county. They are a
turbulent, warlike race, and have never
been thoroughly subdued.
