Announcement Extraordinary !
CLINED1N3T, Th.3 Celebrated Baltimore Photographer
Having fully tasted 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'iYew 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 $8.00 PER DOZ. Althmnjh we furnish our line Cabinets at
wJi extremely LOW PRICES, we icill devote the same varrful
. 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.
CLIXEDINSTS PHOTOGRAPHIC STUDIO,
477 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, D. C.
Among the advantages resulting to the public by our adopting the Paris Process are :
That the sittings will be a pleasure instead of an ordeal; there will bo no tedious waiting,no
unpleasant odor from Ether, Collodeon, or Chemicals; nervous people can sit without feel
ing 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 satisfactory results. The busy merchant
and parlies in office who cannot spare time,only early in the morning or lato iu the afternoon
can now come and have sittings made at a timo when it could not be secured by the old
method. The lightning rapidity with which the exposures have to bo 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 seo the beautiful display of work.

Detroit Free Press.
Bewitched by His Future Bride.
More than one woman has worked
in the mines for her living in this
country as in the English pits. The
Philadelphia Press recently mentioned
Mrs. Riginiary, of Locust Gap. who
hauls coal with a two-horse team to
customers. She formerly worked at
Excelsior colliery with her husband,
and it is related that she could load
wagons as quickly and well as her hus
band. Another notable example of
this kind is current among the miners
Reliance colliery. Thomas East, now
deceased, used for awhile to bring his
fourteen-year-old daughter to the mines
to help him. She didtho best she could
until the boss put a stop to it by send
ing her home. East had a family of
girls and proposed to make them useful
in the most convenient way to himself.
One morning, before the foreman's
interference, a miner saw the lass at
work. He had not heard of her before,
and thinking himself bewitched or the
beholder of a vision, he fainted from
fright. He lived to regard her pre
sence with less terror, for within a
year she walked to the altar with him
and became his bride.
Success in Life.
Without unremitting labor, success
in life, whatever our occupation, is
impossible. A fortune is not made
without toil, and money unearned
comes to few. The habitual loiterer
never brings anything to pass. The
young men whom you see lounging
about waiting for the weather to
change before they go to work, break
down before they begin get stuck be
fore they start. Ability and willing
ness to labor are the two great condi
tions of success. It is useless to work
an electrical machine in a vacuum,
but the air may be full of electricity,
and still you can draw no spark until
you turn the machine. The beautiful
statue may exist in the artist's brain,
and it may also bo said in a certain
senso to exist in the marble block that
stands before him, but he must bring
both his brains and his hands to bear
upon the marble, and work hard and
long, in order to produce any practical
result. Success also depends in a good
measure upon the man's promptness to
take advantage of the rise of the' tide.
A great deal of what we call "luck" is
nothing more nor less-.an this: It is
the man who keeps his eyes open, and
his hands out of his pockets, that suc
ceeds. "I missed my chance," exclaims
the disappointed man, when he sees
another catch eagerly at the opportu
nity But something more than alert-
ness is needed; we must know how to
avail ourselves of the emergency. An
elastic temperament, which never
seems to recognize the fact of defeat,
or forgets it at once and begins the
work over again, is very likely to en
sure success. Many a great orator has
made a terrible break-down in his
maiden speech. Many a merchant
loses one fortune only to build up an
other and a larger one. Many an in
ventor fails in his first efforts, and is
at last rewarded with a splendid
triumph. Some of the most popular
novelists wrote very poor stuff in the
beginning. They were learning their
trade, and could not expect to turn out
first-class work until their apprentice
ship is over. One great secret of suc
cess is not to become discouraged, but
always be ready to try again.
A young man found himself seated
at a city hotel table, probably for the
first time, and the table girl, desirous
of ascertaining the extent to which he,
as is often asked, preferred his steak
done, propounded the usual question
of how do you like it. Of course there
wasn't any smiling around that board
when the answer was returned with all
the simplicity imaginable, "Oh, I like
it first rate."

with $81,390,000 capital, were set
