Wanted-"Words, words, words."
Only they must be qnaint, curions o?
unique. They are wanted by the Amer
ican Dialect Society, whose New York
branch held a meeting yesterday after
noon for the purpose of letting ita
warjts be known. So, if you happen
to know of any cunoue verbal speci
mens, send them to the society at
once. The English Dialect Society IE
just about to publish a dictionary con
gaing all the known dialects spoken on
British soil. It is the ambition of the
American to do the same for the dia
lects of this country. The value of
such a complication is threefold. It
will, firstly, preserve that which gives
any language its variety and scope.
[ Secondly, it will give one an opportu
nity to perceive for himself how lan
guage is made, how words conform
themselves to the needs and habits ol
living and iuvironment-dinlect being
tho di roc: result of life upon language,
whilo its final test is but another proof
that tho fittest survives. Thirdly, dia
lect study binds together different and
widely separated sections of country,
giving thom a clearer knowledge of
each other. There is a possible fourth
advantage. It is that all dialect stories
of whatever locality be taken care of
by tho Dialect society, rathor than in
flicted upon a long-suffering public. -

How We are Known in England.
Tho cablegrams announce that Col
onel Cody, who will bc remembered in
London, has been returned as mayor
of Nebraska. No better selection
could havo been made. Colonel Cody
was tho friend of a mon named Boone,
who discovered Kontucky in 18G9.
After marrying thc granddaughter of
a distinguished gentleman known as
Sitting Bull Frog, Cody was twice
governor of Chicago, and at one timo
was mayor of tho Arkansas legislature
He also served in tho Confedcrato
army under Ben Butler, who so gal
lantly defended New Orleaus against
General Longstreet. The province of
Detroit rowarded him for h?6 military
services by sending him to congress,
where he introduced a bill for the re

Clothes Made of Peat.
Underwear is now made in Paris of
peat. This sounds like a joke, but
there is nothing of the Munchausen
order about it. It has been known for
some time that peat has certain anti'
septio qualities. A dead body which
was buried in peat for over a century
was found in a state of perfect preser
vation. Peat is used in the northern
countries of Europe for surgical band
ages, and the favorable results obtain
ed by tho Russian surgeons with peat
bandages have induced tho French
army department to use it in the
French hospitals. It has also bern
found that peat fibers in combination
with other material possess wonderful
absorbing properties. This has lcd
Dr. Rasurel to uso peat fibers for tho
making of underwear in the place of
flannel. The now material has proven
very effective, absorbing perspiration
and rapidly drying. Dr. Rasurel calls
-hjj^fabjjj^^^real hydraulio pump,"
and ^pronounces "TlMfl excellent pre
ventive of colds. The t?tw_Jextile is
already largely used in France.""" -

Miss Stratton's Portrait.
BY SUSAN AJ?CHER WEISS.
T'3 of no nee,
Miss Stratton, tam
ing round from thc
glass before whicL
sho had been crimp
ing her dyed frizzes
-"no nae what

u man who can't
earn enouoh to support himself, much
less a family I"
"But, aunt, ho is clever, and wjil
get a good practico in timo."
"In time!" repeated Miss Stratton,
contemptuously. "Yes, ia about
twenty years or so, perhaps. Aud,
meanwhile, what do you and he pro
pose to live on ?"
"Tho-the money that grandma loft
me would help us to begin with," said
"Fivo thousand dollars! How far
would that go ? And besides, you f or^
get that it was left to you only con
ditionally. I should be false to the
trust reposed in me," said Miss Strat
ton, erecting her thin form with an
air of moral dignity, "ii I gave my
consent to your wedding yourself to a
j lifo of poverty, and tho wretchedness
which poverty always ontails. You
can marry George Irving if you chooso
-:mind, I don't say that I forbid it
but with my consent, no hard-earned
money of my deceased mother 6hall
ever go i tito the pockets of an Irving."
In tho Inst sentence Miss Stratton
The high, moral tono vanished be
fore the self-interested motive, which
was the real basis of her persistent
opposition to Dclphino's marriage.
?ho had not forgotten that young
Doctor Irving's father had jilted her
in her youth and married her bosom
friend Mary Lane ; nor that this course
had been brought about by Doctor
Irving's Aunt Dorothea, who had been
her special rival from their very baby
hood, and who had warned her favor
ite brother that ho would not bo happy
with Millicent Stratton as his wife.
As to tho doctor himself-who had
as yet barely become accustomed to
his now professional title-it was true
that he was very poor, but Delphine
had been right ir. eaying that he was
clever, and would probably wia a good
And if-thc girl often thought wist
fully-if only she could bring him
that five thousand dollars to begiu
with-to 6ot up a horse and buggy,
for iastauce, and rent that desirably
located, brand-now office-how mach
it might do for him, and how happy
they might be !
And it all rested upon a word from
Aunt Millicent, which she refj^aetrti
Sosr^?e^pTosaid that that was t
very unjust condition of old Maclan
Stratton's will, by which the fiv<
thousand dollars was to be hers onl]
upon tho express stipulation that she
did not marry against her ann fe con
The young folks, ono and all, pro
nonnced it "horrid" and "cruel,'
though there were some among tho el
ders who remembered how the ole
lady herself had made a most unbap
py marriage, against tho will of hei
family; and how her favorite daugh
ter, Delphine's mother, had followec
her examplo and been equally
And, as she expressed her belie!
that such things "rau ia familios,'
sho had ia Delphine's instance guard
od against a similar rccurreuco bj
making it a condition that her grand
daughter should marry with the fal]
consent and approval of her shrewd,
sharp and scrupulously correct Aun1
Millicent, who had boca always vari
severo iu condemuatioa of hur eistor'i
Miss Stratton loved monoy, anc
though very unwilling that tho fiv<
thousand dollars should go to the var
ious charities to which it had beer
bequeathed in case of Delphine's for
feituro of it, she would, in her owr
heart, rather havo seou it cast inte
tho ocean than iu any way benefiting
thc son of John Irving and Mary Lane,
and tho nephew of Dorothea Irving,
who had recently averred that, despite
Millicent's airs, nono of the Strattons
could hold ? candle to tho Irvings.
Delphine's eyes were full of tears as
?he reported to her lover the conver
sation with her aunt, and that lady'*
declared unalterable decision ia re
gard to her marriage.
He tried to sootho her.
"Let the money go !" he said, impa
tiently. "It is a comfort to think
that sho cannot forbid our marriage,
though 6ho may keep us apart foi
awhile. But wo aro young and can af
ford to wait-can't we, darling?"
"I will wait for you all my lifo,
George, if it is necessary," said Del
Yet, though they both tried to look
choerful, their hearts sank at the
thought of tho slow-rolling weeks and
months, and years perhaps, in which
thoy must livo apart, scarcely mooting
except by accident, since Miss Strat
ton objected to her nioco's receiving
the doctor's visits at her own house.
It was about this timo that a sensa
tion was created by the arrival of an
artist-no third or fourth-rate profes
sor, but a genuine artist, with a name
and a famo-who, having come hither
for his health, allowed it to ho under
stood that ho would condescend to thc
light rocrcatiou of painting a few por
traits of tho aristocracy ; and the aris
tocracy, for thc most part cager to so
euro this proof of their being such,
hastened at once to secure his ser
Among tho first to call upon Mr.
Blender was Miss Stratton.
To-he-sure, his charges were enor
mous-quite ruinous, indeed-but,
then, as Mrs. Goldsby, tho former
jeweler's wife, superciliously re
marked, there was "the same differ
ence in high and low art as in real and
imitation diamonds. If ouu would
havo tho genuine, ono must expect to
pay accordingly ; and everybody knew
what incredible prices were paid foi
oil paiutings nowadays."
And Mrs, Oldhorough, who had nc
diamonds, but boasted of pedigree, c
served that "of course it was nee
L sary for every old family to keep
its family portrait gallery." So s
meant to have her own likeness tak
and hung beside that of her grar
father, the judge.
} It required a long time for M:
Stratton to consider in what style s
would have her portrait taken.
Finally she deoided upon a fa
length figure in thc midst of a garde
the face shaded and softened by a pi
. parasol, and her hands full of roses,
t This woud serve to display h
height and tho dignity of her curriag
and also allow of considerable picti
, esqueness in her dress, falling grac
) fully about.
She gave the artist several sitting
and being then assured that ho cou
complete the portrait with the assit
anco of a photograph left with him f
the purpose, she waited in pleased a
ticipation of tho result.
On th? day appointed by Mr. Ble
der, Miss Stratton repairod to tl
I studio, and tho completed portrait w
. unveiled before her eyes.
, She surveyed it for eomo momen
t in silence.
"You don't call this a likeness?" si
, at length demanded, very abruptly.
"An cxcollent likeness, madam," r
. turned Mr. Blender, composedly.
! "But-but"-surveying it first fro
. one side and then another-"it lool

"I beg your pardon, madam, bat

ly, bat firmly.
"It's a perfect fright!" 6?vid Mi
Mr. Blender shrugged his shonlJor
in a deprecating manner, and th
lady's face becamo very rod.
"You promised mo a good likenes:
sir," sho said, "for which I agreed t
pay you one hundred dollars
Mr. Blender bowed.
"I do not consider thi3 a likene:
at all. It must bo altered."
"To alter it would bc to destroy th
"Yon decline to mako any changi
such as I might suggest?"
Mr. Blender replied that he was nc
accustomed to paint portraits aftc
tho suggestions of tho sitter, but at
cording to his own judgment: that h
allowed none but perfect likenesses t
go forth from his hand und under h
name, though ho made a point of add
ing whatever softening touches coul
bo judiciously introduced. Ho ha
done so in this instance.
Miss Stratton glared at him indig
nantly. Hero was insult added to ir
"All that I have to say is, that I d
not consider tho picturo a likencst
and must declino to take it," sho said
"Do you mean, madam, that yo

"Certainly, sir! I cannot bo es

Mr. Blender then proposed to rofo
the question of the likeness to on;

Miss Stratton immediately sont across

Somo days after this, Miss Stratto:
l was passing down thc main street
, when her attention was attracted by i
, group of paasers-by, who had stoppci
I in front of a fashionable book store
Glancing at the window, her foot
j steps were instantly arrested, and shu
j stood still, breathless with surprist
, There wds her portrait-tho identi

j a caricaturo-only that whilo tho fig

picture had undergone a co'mplet
Tho garden was changed to a sunn;
glade in a wood ; tho fountain in thi
background had given placo to a gips^
, tent, and boforo tho thin, smirking
befrizzlcd figuro in laco and volve
stood a beautiful, dark-eyed young
girl, in simple, graceful gipsy costume
, intently studying tho palm of tk<
lady's hand, whilo two roguish facet
peeped at them from behind a treo.
Tho picture was labeled, "Tolling
Past Fortune. "
"Why, it's tho image of Miss Milli
'. cent Strutton !" said one and anothei
of tho beholders. "Did you ever se?
such a likeness? Ho, ho, ho!"
Aud in tho midst of tho exclama
tions and tho laughter, Miss Stratton
beheld tho new minister coming ap
tho street, ovidently bent upon seoing
what had attracted tho crowd.
Not for worlds would she have had
him behold her pniutod in tins char
, acter ; and sho instantly rushed into
tho storo and confronted tho proprio
"Toko it down nt once-instantly !"
sho exclaimed. "I-I will buy it!"
Tho mau obeyod.
Tho pichir? disappeared from tho
window just as the clergyman came
up, and seeing him pass tho door, Miss
Stratton, reflecting upon thc narrow
escapo, felt Uko fainting.
Howsoever, she recoverod herself,
and in a state of tho utmost excite

1 "Sir," sho indignantly demanded,
i "how dared you exhibit my portrait
as you have done, and without asking

And ehe sat down, trembling and
"I beg your pardon, madam 1" said
Mr. Blender, with perfect composure.
"But did yon not assure me that it
was no likeness, and that your best
friends would not recognize it as
Miss Stratton was silent. What ro
ply, indeed, conld sho mako to this?
"I shall insist upon the picture be

"By no means I I have bestowed
much labor and pains upon it, and
have sncceedod in converting it into

Mr. Blender smiled a superior
"As the picture now ie, I shall

"A thousand dollars!" gasped Miss
"A thousand dollars," ho replied
Her face flushed, and tears startod
to her eyes.
"I could never afford to give that
sum ; and yet to have my likeness ex
posed in this way to tho jeers aud
ridiculo of the public. Oh, Mr. Blon
der, have you no consideration for
the feelings of a lady?"
The artist took a meditative turn up
and down the floor, then seated him
self opposite his distressed visitor.
"Perhaps," ho said, mildly-"per*
haps wo can come to terms."
"What terms?" she inquired eag
"I will destroy the picture, madam,
upon ono condition-th.it you will
have some consideration lor tho feel
ings of ono who should b<i very dear

and by consenting to her marriago j J
with my esteemed young friend and ; *
relative, Doctor Irving, make two do
serving young people very happy."
"They-they ai o too poor," said
Miss Stratton, taken very much by
"Your mother's legacy will enable
them to make a fair begiuniug, and I
know of an opening for a young phy
sician which will do the rest."
Miss Stratton hesitated nervously
and wrung her hands.
"Give mo a day or two to-to think I <
it over," she said. f
At the end of the day or two, sho i ?
called Delphino to her, and told her j j
that she had boen consideriug tho
matter of her marriago with Doctor
Irving, and concluded to let her havo
her own way, and that should she in
tho future suffer for it, not to lay tho
blame upon her shouldere.
And that eamo day Mr. Blender pre
sented her with tho picture of "Tell

own hands cut to pieces and burned in
tho privacy of her own room.
And as to Delphine aud her hus

Stratton to suspect that they know by j *

euch a speed a mere touch of ono to
another might bo a disabling blow,
and if tho squadron is scattered by
ships losing distance an alert enemy
may find his opportunity. Then tho
admiral's signals must be looked to.
If the vessels chango direction, they
should change as one. If the admiral
desiree to chango his formation or his
front, it must bo dono without con
fusion. A captain of a ship in a fleet
action has therofore a double duty
first, to employ his own weapons to
the best advautago and to endeavor to
avoid thoso of tho enemy ; second, to
manouvre his ship with her consorts,
obeying and supporting his admiral ;
and tho latter ho must do amidst tho
torriblo din, confusion, and destruc
tion of tho former. Quick manoeuvr
ing must therefore become to him a
?coond naturo-something to bo done
almost unconsciously as a matter of
habit, and this habit can bo acquired
only by long and constant practice.
The highest school of naval war in
timo of peace, that work which solves
?ls problems, and is the best guaran
tee of future success, is manoeuvring
vessels in company with others-in
professional language, fleet or squad
Proficiency in this art has always
accompanied naval supremacy. It
was so in tho galley period and, much
iater, during that long period when
vessels were propelled by sails alone.
The victories of St. Vincent and
Nelson wero the joint product of their
genius and of fleets of unusual mobil
ity and tactical training. With mod
ern vessel* of great speed and power,
independent of tho wind, and armed
with weapons of variety and precis
ion, this kind of training and drill is
mor* valuable-is, in fact, essential.
Naval writers of all countries dwell
upon its importance, and continually
urge that increasing attention bo given
to it during these times of pcaco
which ufford tho only real opportuni
ty of preparing for the sharp and de
cisive wars of modern times. -Har
