HIS FIRE ESCAPE.
Tfce Oalr Time the Trsrreler Waste
to Vmte It He Cealaat Fia
A commercial traveler who was put
ting up at one of the hotels exhibited
a curious contrivance to some friends
'the other evening, says the New Orleans
Times-Democrat. It consisted of a
'metal reel almost eight inches long,
bolted securely to one of the inside cor
ners of his trunk. On the reel was
wound about 100 feet of steel wire, ter
minating in a sort of stirrup. The en
tire device occupied considerably less
than a square foot of room, and the
drummer explained that it was a fire
escape of his own invention. "All I
have to do," he said, "is to put my foot
in the stirrup and let myself out of the
window. The trunk acts as an anchor
at this end and theratchetatthesideof
the reel prevents the wire'f rom paying
out too rapidly." "Did you ever have
occasion to put it to use?" asked one of
the spectators. "Only once," replied
the drummer. "I was in a hotel that
caught lire at night about eight months
ago and the first thing I did when I
jumped out of bed was to rush for my
trunk. It was locked and in rcry excite
ment I couldn't find the key. 1 hunted
high and low and was still hunting
when the porter rushed in and led me
.downstairs. They extinguished the fire
land I subsequently discovered the ke3'
under the bureau. Now 1 hae the thing
on a chain and am loaded for conflagra
tions of all brands."
TEE BUGLER WHO FORGOT.
Be Saw on Opening: lu the Enemy'
Line and bounded a
It is not often that nn enlisted man
gets a chance to run a part of the fight
to suit himself. That chance, however,
says Leslie's Weekly, came to one bu
gler. Capt. ITannay, finding that com
pany L was too far aw aj' to hear orders,
in a recent engagement in the Philip
pines, sent his bugler after the com
pany to sound the charge. At the first
notes company L flew onward. It as
right here that the bugler forgot, for
the time being, that lie was only the
chance, he thought, not to be lost,
lie sounded once more and Lieut. Ross,
imagining, ox course, that the order
came from Capt. Uannay, executed it.
Xot een yet was the bugler's thirst for
forward action cated. lie sounded
again and again, as the heat of general
ship made his blood flow thick and fast.
By the time the bugler came to him
self and relinquished the duties of fight;
director, the poor fellows of company
L were troubled with shortness of
ibreath. In this brisk affair, according
to the official report, the dead reached
ja total of about GO, including scone
officers. It is the enemy's dead that is
'meant, of course. Twentj-one mausers

.Their Garments Are Well Made aa
Show Good AVorkmaBihlp
Bat Do Xot Fit.
"The best that can be said of the
clothes imported by American men
from London is that they are well
I made," said Nelson R. Huntington, of
'New York, who has spent years abroad
lin the study of the hospitals, to a Phil
adelphia North American man. "They
never fit. Indeed, the art of misfit
seems to be caref ullj studied. The gar
ments of both men and women never set
well, and even the actresses, who are
supposed to be exacting, suffer from
the inability or indisposition of the
'English tailors to fit the figure. The
finish, however, shows fine and thor
ough workmanship. The French
achieve better fits, but the work is
atrocious, making the best garments
look cheap and hurried. Net even im
portant buttons are secure. American
tailors and dressmakers surpass, every
thingin Europe in making a fit, and the
finish compares favorably with the Eng
lish. The New Yorkers who import
'garments made by Poole and other
fashionable London tailors had them
refitted by American tailors until a year
or two ago, Trhen the latter refused to
touch them at any price."
THE BOSTON WOMAN.
She Thoroughly Inculcates and II
lnstratc the Tree Principles
Boston does not develop its character
through the medium of its aristocracy
alone, writes Margaret Allston in La
dies' Home Journal. It is the most
.democratic citv in A:neric.n. if nnt in ihi
j . t .
world. It is both the cradle and nurse
of independence. Evidences of these
truths were set forth in the costumes of
the feminine mass in evidence at the
first symphony rehearsal I attended.
All of fashionable .Boston -nas present,
and still the audience did not look fash
ionable from a metropolitan stand
point. There were so many women!
If you could hear the plaint of that ex
clamation you would understand at
once how oppressive in its preponder
ance is the femininity of Boston. "Wom
an" is stamped on every inch of .Massa
chusetts ground. (There can be een
too much of a gocii thing.) She is" as
inevitable as the sr? soni. She is more
difficult to escape than thelc--i , sye.
She inculcates and 'liuslrav mp r.:in
ciples of freedom all ihe-.sy fiom her
emancipation creed to the iapeof her
waist and the length of her itride when
