A somewhat similar spirit was exhibit

There is great excitement in Eng

well as cheaper, articlo than nativo

seems to tho Boston dilti rat^r a
strange thing for a professedly Chris

fact that money ?3 made thereby will
cover tho sin. It is money rather than
anything else that serves as an idol to
millions who little suspect themselves
The center of our population in
1790 was about twenty-three miles
east of Baltimore; in 1810, about
forty miks northwest of Washington ;
in 1S20, about sixteen miles north of
Woodstock, Yu. ; in 1330, about nine
teen miles southwest of Moorefield,
W. Va. ; in 184 sixteen miles south
of Clarksburg, W. Va. ; in 18-30,

south of Chillirotho, Ohio; iu 1S70,
forty-eight milc3 east of Cincinnati ;
in 1880, eight miles west of Cincinnati ;
in 1890, twenty miles cast of Colum

able feature in this march is thc
directness of its westerly progress. In
tho full century it has not varied half
a degree from a duo west direction or
gone north or south of a belt about
twenty-five miles broad. Yet iu this
century it has moved across inore tim ii

Tho original Constitution of tho

inches deep, and fourteen by nineteen

are parchment sheets, easily filling the*
space, on which are written tho Con

fifth frame are tho signatures, and tho

of you can repeat, is separated from i

is no attempt ut fancy lettering in the ;
opening words, as there is in the i
Articles of Confederation. Many of :
the signatures are the same as are i
found at tho bottom of the Declara

form port of this original, but are
written upon separate rolls of parch- i
raent, and preserved in tin tubes that :
stand in the corner of a closet. The j
number of theso tubes is greatly in- i
creased by those that contain tho i
official ratifications by the Statos. Tho 1
earlier of these ratifications includes i
approval of the Constitution and of 1
thc earlier amendments. Later amend- i

THE NEWEST FANCIES; IN WO

of the Moment-Startllnj; Nov

Clack Chip Hat.
OB a little -while you can use
valencienues, says a New York
fashion letter to tho Chicago
Record. It is the fashionable
lace at tho moment, but it is so cheap
that nothing is more certain than that
it won't bo tho fashion very long.
While the fancy lasts, however, it is
lavished upon everything unsparingly.
The summer blouse is all valenciennes.
I was looking yesterday at a white
toffeta waist that belongs in the trous
seau of a Juno bride. The back of it
was plain, but the front was laid iu
tiny tucka, between which were sot
rows of narrow insertion, edged with
valenciennes that stood_ out in frills.
The big sleeves were tucked and lace
garnished in the same fashion, and
there was a white silk collar all a-flut
ter with lace rufflinga.
A white lawn dress is another sum
mery example. It has a skirt eight
yards round, with three lawn ruffles at
the bottom. The top ruffle is headed
with valenciennes and all three are
footed with it. The waist is trimmed
in dainty fuahiou. Two rows of valen
ciennes are run together, to maka a
tiny ruche, au 1 five rows of niching
nre thrown over the blouse, bretelle
fashion. Little rosettes o? lace are
perched upon thc shoulders like but

Less showy, but quito as novel, may
be, was a green cloth cycling suit, with
white Bilk hi ouse, all frills and fluffiness.
Over thia came a green Figaro jacket,
faced with white, and a belt and neck
tio of tartan red and green. No skirt
at all wa? visible, but tho knicker
bockers were so full you wouldn't have
known the difference until you got to
tho knees. At tho knees they stopped,
and tartan stockings took their place,
helped out by soft cycling shoes.
PIQUE AND DUCK SUITS.
In thicker cottons, says Harper's
Bazar, pique is tho favorite in whito
nnl colors alike, tho tau colors hoing
made np in tailor fashion, with a short
blazer and skirt to wear with whito
shirtwaists. Extremely plaiu whito
piquo suits, entirely without trim
ming, and mado in tailor fashion, are
considored good style, and others have
merely a row of open-patterned inser
tion iet in the large square collar, and
perhapa arouud tho blazer. Others
havo a round waist with blouso front,
box-pleated in flout and black. The
trimming is a sailor collar of palo bluo
pique and a whito stocit with Faquin
points of blue- Large puffed sleeecs
of whito pique havo tho closo lower
part of blue. Tho skirt, nearly BIX
yards wide in six gored breadths, has
no lining, and is trimmed with a broad
bias band of palo blue, tho belt also
being of tho bluo pique. A short
blazer of whito pique has tbreo large
pearl buttous each side of tho open
front, to correspond with three other
buttons placed ou a box-ploat beside
the front breadth of tho skirt. A large
square collar is on tho blazer.
Fancy duck suite in white ecru and
dark bluo are made with a short jacket
of Eton leugtb, or else a blazer that
extends six or eight inches below the
waist-line. There is uo liniug in tho

the wife of the man who sat beside

Chinese Boat Dwellers.
Tho swarming inhabitants of theso
floating tenements have their only
homes upon the waters of tho noble
Peking river. Tho miles of closely
crowded boats moving restlessly up
and down stream between the green
fields resemble a huge metropolis of
vast squares and avenues, river
rocked cradles where the drama of
life is enacted by the thousands who
glean but a scanty livelihood.
As soon as a boy born to ono of
these river denizens can stand upon
his little feet he is strapped to a
scull or oar, and begins to go through
tho motions of propelling the boat,
earning his living at least in theory
from the earliest age.
Whenever his hair is sufficiently
long to plait into a respectable tail
ho begins to manipulate chopsticks,
to hate foreigners, to understand the
ring of money, and in time to paddle
his own small wherry and carry a
foreign devil up and down the river.
If he wishes to see a little of tho
world ho may ship upon a traveling
junk, not to venture, however, out
side of Chinese waters, and after ac
cumulating a few dollars he takes
unto himself a wifo and establishes
his home among thc rivor popula
tion-the Paris of China.
