the hopes that be might be able BOtne

workers In ceramics, art needlework,
and the kindred minor decorative
Thk new feature has been added to
the other departments of The Art
Interchange in response to requests
from hundreds of amateurs who find
it impossible to obtain satisfactory
working designs in color unless they
order them direct from artists at a cost
of from fifteen dollars and upward.
Great care has been taken to secure
the services of artlsk of the first rank
and to have the designs especially
adapted to the requirements of art
students. Every branch of art
painting, embroidery, glass staining,
stenciling, etc has been considered
in the selection of the designs, so that
all art workers will find them of
the greatest possible value.

According to Belgium papers the
health of the ex-Empress Charlotte,
widow of Maximilian, has so much
improved within the last five months
that her physlckns entertain hopes of
her recovery. The ex-Em press know
in her 43d year.but looks much older,
ber balr being gray. She has become
thin and wrinkled, but her eyes still
retain her old. animated expression.
The King and Queen of the Belgians
often visit ber at the castle of Bou

The case of Gen. Mackenzie, U. 8.
A., who was last week temporarily
relieved of the command of the de
partment of Texas, is one replete with
pathos. Only a few weeks ago the
announcement was made of hk in
tended marriage during the Christ
mas holidays, and thk was speedily
followed by a statement that hfs
mind bad become unbalanced and
that he labored at times under the
most painful hallucinations. To the
latter fact was due the order for his
relief of the command.
Some very curiously worded adver-
tlsemenk creep Into the newspapers
now and then. Here, for Instance,
are three amusing examples of com
position which an English traveller
says he read In one Issue of a London
paper: "Lost. A camera brooch,
representing Venus and Adonis whilst
walking In Sandy Mount, on 8unday
last." "Wanted A nurse for an in
fant between twenty-five & thirty, a
member of the Church of Engknd &
without followers." "Mrs. and Miss

The Atlantic Monthly for December,
16S3, contained tbe following : "The
explanation of the proverbial saving
about 'Hobson's choice' Is given by
Steele In the Spectator, No. 609." The
passage referred to is thus: "Tobias
Hobson was the first man in England
that let out hackney horses.
When a man came for a horse he was
let into the stable) where there was a
great choice, but Hobson obliged him
to take the horse which stood nearest
ta tbe stable door; so that every cus
tomer was alike well served, accoid
ingto bk chance, from whence It be
came a proverb, when what ought to
be your election was forced upon you,
to say, 'Hobson's choice."
Senator Cameron, in a letter re
ceived by a friend, stated that be is
now stopping at the Hotel Wagram.
Paris, and that bk health k so good
that lie expects to remain there for tho
remainder of tho winter. Early in
the spring he will return to; the United
States and, If possible, resume hk
public duties In the Senate. Mr. Cam
eron refers very pleasantly to his trip
and says that In l'ark he Is strongly
reminded of America by the cordial
ity of the )eople with whom he had
been brought In contact Hk health
is absolutely restored and he has been
enabled to dispense altogether with
the services of a physician.

droped out of public notice almost as
completely as If be had never been

reappointed Marshal of Massachusetts,
an office he has held for four years
past; and they say of him that be is

very poor, and dependent upon hk
