FOB I OMAN'S BENEFIT.!
?First Woman Lawyer in Tennessee.
The first woman ever admitted to
the bar in Tennessee was sworn in a
few days ago by Circuit Judge Estill
at Chattanooga. Mrs. H. Wupper
man, a German, who was recently
graduated from a law school, waa the
successful applicant. She was Warm
ly greeted by her fellow practionevs at
the bar, and many speeches were
made welcoming her. ^
Xew Gift from Mrs. Stanford.
Mrs. Ja^e Stanford has made an
other gift to Stanford university. Be
fore she left for Europe a few days ago
she executed deeds transferring to the
institution 1700 acres of land in Las
Ben county and 160 acres of land in
Tehama county, California. All this
land was recently purchased by Mrs.
Sanford to secure valuable water
rights and grazing laud for the big
flocks of 6heep owned by her. The
sheep constitute one of her best as
sets today, and eventually they will
be transferred to Vina Banch, which
is already owned by the university.
Mrs. Stanford has gone for a three
months' tour. While away, it is said,
she contemplates spending 31,000,000
for rare articles for the university
A Hat Fad.
One of the fads of the year is tho
trimming of hats with pigeons. The
entire bird is taken, spread ont flat,
the neck thrust through a rhinestone
ring, and tucked down in a most ex
traordinary fashion, while the feet
and wings are left outspread. The
claws are there-indeed, everything
is absolutely perfect. This bird is
generally seen on the hats worn down
over the face. It is used a great deal
on the hats of shirred black mousse
lino de soie, or on the soft black hats
with the shirred mousseline de soie
brim. The gray and white of the
pigeon looks very well against the
black. It is of course a most useful
style of hat, for there is uothiug to be
injured by wiud or weather, but it is
just a trifle startliug, and certainly
not a style becoming to everybody.
Scarf Trimmine* for Hats.
Leghorns and Tuscan shapes, both
plaiu and fancy, will carry the day
for smart summer hats. There are
also some charming fine fancy straws
in mother-of-pearl tiuts obtained by
the plaitiug together of palest gray
with very light pink and blue, which
are much patronized by some of the
first milliners. The last is used for a
cape-line, to which the name "Otero"
has been given, and the principal
feature of which is a long lace scarf
folded .lengthwise and plaited to the
base of the crown, and with the ends
falling iu a cascade at the back. The
centre of the scarf passes through a
large square buckle, which stands up
against the front of the crown, and
beneath it is fixed a sheaf of white
aigrette aud a white Amazon plume
that sweeps back over the hat.-Mil
linery Trade Review.
"Dreams of Loveliness."
. Hats are as ever dreams of loveli
ness. A most clever bit of coloring
was displayed in a toque of coarse
yellow lace threaded with green oats
and lightly veiled with black tulle il
lusion, the left side lifted high with
rosettes of pale blue and pale green
ribbon tied about with black tulle. A
perfectly sweet toque, too, .was a
twisted affair of Tnscau, trimmed with
high upstanding ends of blue aud
white foulard, yellow cowslips and
black velvet. That touch of foulard
was very good. Two other models
were representative!}- illustrative of
more elaborate workmanship. One
was bunched with lilies of the valley,
the straw being of lily of the valley
green, the brim daintily veiled in em
broidered lisse, and the crown draped
with two shades of soft green ribbon.
At the back, where the brim was
cleft, came a large bow, and conse
quently the one view is as good
as the other. Harebell blue straw
composed the other model, together
with wreaths of shaded couvolvuli,
and ribbon draperies of convolvulus
pink and and harebell blue.
Cool Black and White Frocks.
All sorts of delightful combinations
in black and white laces and chiffons
tempt one to black aud white frocks,
.than which nothing is so cool or be
coming when daintily fashioned. There
are braids for trimming in black and
white mixtures, white laces run with
.black thread, white tulles and chiffons
dotted with black, white tulle and
mousseline with applique black lace
motifs, white ribbon with fringed
edges of black, narrow black velvet
gathered on the edge of heavy cream
lace insertion aud all sorts of ruches
of black net and white chiffon. The
black and white toilette must be ab
solutely fresh and dainty to be seen
at its best. Crispness, coolness and
daintiness are its chief attributes. It
has other traits -expense is one, for
to bo rich as well as daintily-effective
it must be made of flue fabric, and
women who dress well and who cling
to back aud white, knowing how much
distinction it gives to all to whom it
. is becoming, do not complain if their
bills run up into the thousands and
far beyond the accounts of the rain
bow dressed woman.
A Shirt Waist Grievance.
Said a girl kicker recently-not an
acrobat, but oue who is eternally try
ing to arrange the affairs of this mun
daue sphere, and who, to her credit
be it said, has usually more than a
modicum of right in her grievance:
"Why is it that manufacturers of shiit
waists will never awake to the knowl
edge that the female figure has varia
tions from tho accepted model of trade?
All women are not the same size as re
gards the minor points of arm length,
etc. Buy a shirt waist and you will
find that you can have your ^iok of
pattarn and color, but the arm "lengths
will not vary. Take a 31 or a 36 or
a 38 bust measure and someone else
who buys the same number,but wiose
arm may be a couple of inches short
er, will have exactly the same meas
urements in her waist. If a man buys
a shirt of a good manufacturer he will
find that a given neck size has at
least three arm lengths.
"The shirt waist has come to stay.
Why do manufacturers force women
to have them made in order to have
these differences adjusted? Why do
tney not wake to the knowledge of
ibis arm 'eugth distinction?"-New
A Clever ami Charmine Woman.
No woman was so thoroughly recon
ciled to positive ugliness in her own
person as the Duchess d'Orleaus,
the mother of the ?eg?nt d'Orlean?,
who governed France during the mi
nority of Louis XV, Mnuy of her ideas
v . of dress were very wise. Eor exam*
<\|>lo, ehe once ob?9rvecij "From my
earliest years I was aware bow ordi
nary my appearance was, and did not
like tbat people should look at me
attentively. I never paid any attention
to dress, because diamonds and dress
were sure to attract attention. On
great days my husband used to make
me rouge, which I did greatly against
my will." One day the duchess made
the Countess Soissons laugh heartily.
The countess asked her why she never
turned her head when she passed be
for a mirror as everybody else did.
She answered because she had too
much self-love to bear the sight of her
own ugliness. Tho Countess d'Or
leans' description of herself in her
youth is certainly not alluring: "My
face was large, with fat cheeks, and
my figure was short and stumpy; in
short, I was a very homely sort of
person. Except for the goodness of
my disposition no one would have en
dured me. It was impossible to dis
cover anything like intelligence in
my eyes except with a microscope.
Perhaps there was not on the face of
the earth such another pair of ugly
hands as mine. The king often told
me sc, and set me laughing about it;
for as I was sure of being ugly I made
up my mind to be the first to laugh at
it. This succeeded very well, though
I must confess it furnished me with a
good stock of materials for laughter."
Comfort for Tired Feet.
It is poor economy to confine one
self to one pair of shoes. "When the
feet are kept constantly eucased in
the same footgear the rubbing on cer

callous places or little corns, than

Every morning the feet should be
sponged off with water perfumed
slightly with benzoin. At night, par
ticularly in warm weather, they should
bc bathed with tepid water and castile
soap. If they are tender, hot water
and a little arnica will take away the
feverish, tired ache. Under such con
ditions the stockings should be dusted
with a powder made of eighty-seven
grains of boric acid, twenty-six grains
cf salicyclic acid and one and three
fourths ounces of tiuely powdered tal
cum. Don't wear heelless slippers or
boots with French heels.
Stockings and shoes should be
changed frequently because of the un
usually large pores in the soles of the
feet. They are tho largest in the body
aud send out an excessive amount of
poisonous secretions. The thick shoes
we wear make this condition worse,
for the reason that one's feet, put
into a pair of calfskin boots, are as
airtight as a compartment in a battle
ship. If you would have pretty feet
aud perfect ones do not hesitate to
change hosiery every day and shoes
as often as convenient.
Cold feet tell a story of bad circu

Horses and Men.
Study of the relation between the
total length of life and the time re
quired to reach maturity has bough 1
out an interesting comparison between
men and horses. A horse of five years
is said to be, comparatively, as old as
a man at 20, and may be ex
pected to behave, according to equine
standards, after the manner of the
average college student following
human standards. A ten-year-old
horse resembles, so far u3 age and ex
perience go, a man of 40,while a horse
which has attained the ripe age of 35
is comparable with a mau of 90 years.

That tornadoes of terrible violence
are now frequent in the prairie region
of the middle west is a fact made
lamentably evident by dispatches com
ing daily from that part of the coun
try. The other fact, that reports of
such storms reached us but rarely a
few years ago and were next to un
heard of within the memory of men
by no means old, might easily be
taken by a good many people as indi
cating that climatic conditions are
undergoing an unfortunate change,
the result of which is a marked in
crease in the number, or at least in
the force, of these little cyclones.
There is probably no basis for this
theory, and every reason to believe
that the winds b?ow across the grassy
plains now much as they always have
done. When these plains were empty
except for a few thousand Indians
and a few hundred white hunters, the
doings of tornadoes naturally went
unrecorded, and the havoc they
worked was of no particular conse
quence. The vast majority of them
formed, ran their brief course, aud
were dissipated without encountering
human habitations or even human
beings. At present there is hardly a
ten-mile square in the whole west
that does not coutoin its little village,
or at least a group of farm buildings,
and only in comparatively rare cases
can a tornado follow a course where
it will do no serious harm. Of course
the fertile lauds where this danger ex
ists will not be abandoned because of
it, and sooner or later some effective
means of protection for life, if not for
property, will be devised and used.
Sudden as is the tornado's formation
and rapid as its motion, both arr gov
erned by laws already more or less
well understood, and wholly within
the domain of scientific investigation.
Were a sufficient number of trained
meteorologists to take up the subject,
the result of their labors almost cer
tainly would be the establishment of
a system of warnings sufficiently
timely to permit everybody imperilled
by any particular tornado to gain an
underground refuge constructed on
plans like or better than those now in
use. Whether it will ever be prac
ticable to construct buildings of such
strength aud form as to withstand the !
pressure of a tornado is a more than
dubious question, but even that is not
beyond the rauge of possibility.
Discussing the awful disaster in
Wisconsin, Professor E. B. Garriott
of the weather bureau, Washington,
says that when people see a funnel
shaped cloud coming they should
throw open every door and window in
their houses and then wait for the
storm to pass over.
"Your furniture will probably be
damaged by the heavy rain that usu
ally accompanies a tornado," he says,
"but your house will not be carried
into tho next county nor torn to pieces
by the fury of the winds. The veloc
ity of the wiud causes a vacuum in
the atmosphere. Wheu thc cloud
reaches a house with all its doors and
windows shut the four walls of
the building must give way iu that
vacuum or the house is lift?d from its
foundation and is carried with the
wind. When the destructive cyclone
visited St. Louis a few years ago
many large and substantial houses
were blown down. In the path of the
storm were many frail houses and
sheds. These places escaped without
the loss of a shingle. The numerous
openings permitted the air to escape
freely. On the other hand, where
the buildings were large and securely
closed the confined air caused de
struction. There was a similar inci
dent just outside Chicago a few years
ago. There a storm wrecked a large
barn. Within a few feet of the demol
ished structure was a workshop aud
corncrib which escaped without
"It is difficult to forecast tornadoes
-or, rather, to predict where one will
strike. It is like attempting to fore
tell where lightning will 'hit.' The
only thing to be done when a tornado
visits your neighborhood is to throw
open the doors and pray that the
storm centre will not strike your
neighborhood. The chances of escape
about equal those of destruction. The
storm may hit or miss you. It is
purely a matter cf chance.
"The northwest has fared as well
this year as any other section iu the
matter of destructive storms," con
tinued Dr. Garriott. "That section
has been a favorite stamping ground
for tornadoes. These centres are
caused by the contact of warm air and
coid air, which generally meet in Min
nesota, southern Wisconsin, Illinois
and Michigan. The reports of storms,
as may be expected, increase yearly
as the population in the northwest be
comes more dense. Heretofore the
storms' have swept over the section for
yea'*s and years and nothing was heard
of their severity while their force was
spent upon trees and plains. Now, as
cities and towns are being built every
few miles, the path of the storm is ob
structed by houses, which caunot be
destroyed without the readiug public
learning of it.
"Tornadoes travel from west to
east and are more frequent in the
northwest and middle west, where
there are miles of prairie. In the win
ter the storms form on the Pacific
coast and in the gulf states. The
summer tornadoes come out of the
Bocky mountain regions and are mild
until they come in contact with the
warm air of the valley states. The
combination of the cold air in the
original storm and the warm air meet
ing and mixing at different angles
forms the cyclonic force which causes
the destruction. Tornadoes are broken
by obstacles and cannot exist in a
mountainous country.' The storms
form at a low barometric pressure.
The storms go in groups and their
area at times will cover several skates.
The cyclonic force of the disturb
ance is confined generally to the east
ern section of the storm, and some
times is so high in the atmosphere as
to cause no damage. The cyclonic
forces remain a myste? , and while
the causes of the phenomena are
known we are not successful in fore
easting the storms."
The tornado, which western people
are fond of calling a "cyclone," al
though the storm which bears the
latter designation is a very diff?rent
affair, is the most severe and narrow
est of all loed weuther disturbances.
A thunder shower often presents a
front twenty or thirty miles broad as
it advances eastward, ?nd it has a \
depth of a mile or moro from front to
rear. When once fairly organized it

over, it is suspected thnt a circulation j
of air takes place in it something like

thunder squall, but to its terrific rota
tive power. There is no way tb meas

Although the tornado, thunder

Trick Played by an Unscrupulous Denier
An amusing story, told in the
"Memories of an Old Collector,"
mnkes clear the tricks in trade to<
which an unscrupulous dealer will;
resort in order to get a large sum for
his wares. The two parties were.
Alessandro Castellaui, the clever
dealer, and Baron Adolph Rothschild
Castellani had managed to get'hold
of a superb enamelled ewer, together
with the dish on which it stood. He
knew that Baron Adolph had a fancy
for objects of this kiud, but he also
knew that no Rothschild .was ever so:,
carried away by hie fancy .as to pay
more than was reasonable for any*'
thing that pleased him. Castellani,
who in trade was what Machiavelli,
was in politics, devised a bit of strat
The baron on arriving in Rome
visited Ca8tellani's shop and was
shown the best things the dealer had
except the enamelled dislraud ewer.
When everything else had been in
spected, Castellani drew from a hid
den cupboard the dish, .but not the
ewer. The baron was so pleased with
the dish that he agreed to buy the lot
of which it was a part; for one of the
customs of the shop was not to sell a
rare specimen apart from the group
of which it formed the principal ob
ject. The baron paid heavily for the
whole, lamenting that there was no
ewer to stand on the dish, and de
parted fpr Florence.
There he was visited by an agent
who told him of au old lady who
wished to sell several beautiful
majolica pieces. He visited her house
in the country and was disappointed,
as the majolica was not fine enough to
suit his tustf-. The old lady, seemingly
chagrined, left the room to order re
freshments, and the baron say,
through the open door of a bedroom,
a ewer covered by a glass shade, on
which rested a wreath of immortelles.
When the lady returned the ^baron
asked permission to examine the ewer.
It was brought ont, and the baron,
saw that the enamel was of th? same"
work as that of the dish he had bought
but he wished toibe certain that the
foot of the ewer ' would fit into the
hollow of the dish. He inquired the
price of tho ewjer, and was told by the
lady that it was]not for sale, as it was
I the only souvenir she possessed of her
The baron went back to his rooms,
had the dish uinpacked, and .founfLtbat
the foot of the eW/er fitted it perfectly.
. The next day/the/baron sent the agent
to offer the ?old lady a princely sum
for the ewer. He brought"back a re
fusal to sell. But at last the widow's
.facruples wefre overcome.
Castellanji,with his Italian cunning,
had planneW the whole affair. The
agent who/called and the old lady who
was sentimental were his aids in mak
ing the balron pay a much larger sum
than he w/ould have given had ewer
and dish] been sold together. The
Italian shopman's scheme had taken
in the Jeiviflh banker^ reputed one of
the most (astute of business men.

tlrbse collectors who,'have been taught
by experience to distrust so-called
"ninds." The Arab, conducting a

teniple, suddenly stumbles upon a
scarab. He offers it'for sale as a gen

the Ar\abmot pick it up before' the
eyes of tho whole party? Yes, -but

shot of New Orleans, "while on a hunt^

State. We had spent the day in the

Japanese Dinner Customs.
At the close of formal dinners In
Japan the guests are presented with
any portion of the meat they may fail
to eat. However great or small the
amount they may fail to eat, it is care
fully wrapped up for them and they
are expected to take lt home with
them. The unique custom was fol
I lowed at official dinners until a short
time ago, when it was discontinued,
but the withdrawal of government ex
ample has not materially affected the
practice. The plan has been followed
for many years and it is difficult to
place, its origin.
Feculiar as the custom is, lt ls not
without Ita attractive features. The
husband who stays out late at night
can pave the way to wifely pardon
with the neat and tempting parcel un
der hi6 arm. The impecuious or tem
porarily embarrassed can hold out
enough to tide them over several hun
gry days. The Indulgent father .or
mother can pass the sweets and carry
them home to their children. Half a
dozen satisfactory combinations can
I be worked on the plan. There may be
all kinds of elaborate courses at a din
ner that one does not care for, but the
mental struggle of saying no Is not
half so hard when you know you will
get a chance to carry the food off and
either give It to your children,, feed
lt to your dogs and cats, or distribute
it among your friends. . The Japanese
practice is all that could be expected.
Each kind of food ls kept In a sepa
rate parcel, and at the close of the
dinner the share of each guest is made
up In a neat and artistic bundle.-San

Cedar Used ia Pencil Makins,
"Nine-tenths of the lead pencils used
in the world are manufactured of
American cedar, a very large part of
which is grown in Florida," said a well
known manufacturer. "Some so-called
American manufactured Jead pencils
are made in Europe, but the cedar
from which they are made all comes
from this country. It is shipped to
Europe in convenient sized logs ani
manufactured in proper shape after it
arrives there. There are a number of
cedars throughout the world, but the
Florida cedar is particularly valuable
in the manufacture of lead pencils. It
is of a very fine structure, the grain
being hardly distinguishable, and can
be worked up to the last inch. In the
various grades of the cheaper pencils
other cedars can be used, but for the
finer goods the American cedar ls ex
clusively used. For all practical pur
poses all the pencils used in Europe
are manufactured of Florida cedar.
Much of the lend, plumbago nnd
graphite which ls used in them also
comes from this country. There are a
number of woods in Europe that are
used in the manufacture of matches,
but the American pine* are gradually
weeding them all out, ror the reason
that the American pines can be handled
and worked at less expense than any
other woods. The amount of wood
consumed in matches amounts to two
or three forests of trees a day, but
even with this consumption hardly any
Inroad has been made, for the growth
more than keeps up the supply. The
American match, as well as the wood,
now goes to all parts of the world.
The business is simply enormous, and
it is constantly on the increase."

SAYS WE NEED NEW It AXE,
Prof. Waterhouse ravers Cellini;
This Country 44 Usona " Hereefter.
The St Louis Republic publishes
with favorable editorial comment, an
article furnished by Professor Water
house of Washington University, on
the subject of a proper name for this
country^ the chief points of which ore
"At present there is no proper name
that distinctively describes this coun
try. Columbia and America apply to
the whole western hemisphere. The
people of Canada and Mexico, of Cen
tral and South America are all Ameri
cans and might Justly resent the pre
tension which claims that title exclu
sively for the inhabitants of the United
States of North America.
" 'The United States' is an awkward
expression. It is plural hi form and
singular in sense. It does not afford
personal or adjective derivatives.
United Statesmen and United States
Ian are ihadmisslbly harsh. 'United
States of North America' is an exact
designation of this country. The first
letters o? these words form the word
'Usona.' This term Is agreeable to the
ear, singular in number and precise in
definition. Its introduction would sub
stitute for the incomplete United
States an address so full and exact
that no foreigner could misunderstand
"Formerly tho press indicated that
Its general information was gathered
from the four quarters of the globe by
placing at the heads of its columns
'North, East West, South.' From the
Initials of these words some assert
that the term 'news' was derived.- **<
"It ls facetiously said that United
States stands for 'Uncle Sam,' and this
burlesque personification has found a
permanent place in our languagp. The
baptismal names of Generals Grant
and Jackson have been supplanted by
the universally used names which ac
cident or valor gave. Physicists have
Invested the utterly Inexpressive watt
volt ohm and ampere with technical
meanings and have introduced, them
Into the terminology of electrical sci
"In fine, U6e can create and popu
larize new terms. Do not the words
'Usona' and 'Usonlan' so fully, sub
serve the needs of exact address and
grammatical convenience as to deserve
a place in our language? The press
can, If It will, effect .the adoption of
these n?w words."
Half Dead, Wants Hu l f thc Insurance.
A childlike faith in the arithmetic
confounds all the logic of the schools.
This was the experience of a Pittsburg
life Insurance i.gent who wrote a pol
icy on the life of a Chinaman-the first
ever written for a man of that race in
How the insurance man did it, he
alone knows. The Chinaman had no
very clear idea. He only understood
that if he paid toe premiums regularly
he would be entitled to five thousand
dollars some time. He began bothering
the agent for the money after a couple
of weeks had passed, and the agent
tried to explain to him that he would'
have to die before any one could get
it. Then the Chinaman fell down a cel
larway on Grant Street and was badly
hurt : His friends tried to attend him
without calling in a doctor. When they
did call in one, two days later, the
doctor was angry.
"Why didn't you call me sooner?" he
asked. "This man ls half-dead now."
Next day the injured man's brother
was at the insurance office with ?
claim for twenty-five hundred dollars.
"You're not entitled to anything on*
this," said the Insurance man, "until
the man is dead." .
"Doctor say him half-dead," answer
ed the brother. "Why he no get b?lf ?"
