a mammoth common hearth over
which in the roof was a little tower to
make a draught that should carrv off
the smoke Long after this came a
primitive soit of line which developed
later into the old fashioned chimney
corner of our far off grandfathers
whose enormous capacity embraced a
whole family and supplied them with
cheering warmth And this kind of
fire place and chimney continued in
vogue with no improement in its
technical construction until the latter
pari of the last centun when two
Americans Benjamin Franklin and
Count Kumford began busying them
selves with the heating que tion
Franklin separated the lire place from
the chimney and led the draught after
a short ascent downward again in or-
pa s through a pipe
floor and again through
the ehimne into the outer air This
sort of stove has always been called
the Franklin or Pennsylvania stove
Rumford allowed the characteristic pe
culiarities of the lire place to remain
but brought it further forward into the
room narrowing the chimney at the
height of the fire place opening to so
small a size that only a -lender flue
was left to carry off the smoke Then
dampers were invented and other im
provements made until open lire places

Among the handsome striped suit
ings for autumn wear are twilled
woolens which show clusters of pin
stripes in vari colors the lines most
brilliant on dark grounds bur not in
any degree conspicuous owing to the
narrowness of the stripes The e fancy
wooleus are made up in plain tailor
fashion and the entire costume is
formed of the stripe with usually a
vest and collar and cuffs of velvet al
though for utility purposes shopping
and the like the suit is finished with
machine stitched edges only Other
new patterns show a band of plain
woolen alternating with one which
gives the effect of a stripe heavily
overlaid with soutache in applique

raised design in the woof of the goods

though more novel and therefore
more- attractive to those who have
a strong liking for new ellects the
costly velvet suits made up with por

lind fewer purchasers than those made
wholly of velvet in monochrome for
the reason that the former bears its

ITALIAN WOMEN
Beautiful Creatures Who Are Entirely
Ircts From Simpering Sentimentality
With the budding leaves and fragrant
flowers and the first flush of golden
rays on the pavements the streets av
enues and piazzas get to bo daily
thronged with the womanhood cf the
city I think that for a foreigner there
is not any more interesting sigh in
Italv than that of an Italian girl inner
youth and beauty I do not of course
allude to the signorina in her bread-and-butter
stage w hen she has scarce
ly well abandoned the romping gait
and gestures peculiar to bib and tuck
ers but to the exquisitely rounded
damsel a little more than half way
through her teens who has all tiie
fullness and more than the mellow
qualities of a Parisieune of twenty
one Girls by the by become mobile
here at fourteen and a half years but
on the other hand they rarely keep a
firm grip of their charms 011 the shady
side of thirty During the fifteen years
of their womanly glory- however their
features generally speaking are so
fair and winsome that the most invet
erate bachelors succumb to the coy
blandishments of the delicious creature-
There is no sick I v simpering
sentimentality in the Italian woman
Her passions are trong and often in
controllable When -he loves it is
with her whole- heart and soul and
during the meridian hours of hev at
tachment she would sooner -kill herself
and her lover rather than see him cast
ing sheeps eyes at another female
Here at least Mormons have not the
slightest chance of putting into practice
the peculiar tenets of their persuasion
for the Italian woman is a fearful jeal
ous being ami woe betide her Lothario
if he should forget the pledges he made
or the duty he owes her if he abandons
her and she can not discover his
whereabouts she plunges a knife in her
heart asphyxiates herself in her room
or ends her life in a neighboring river
or canal
She is moreover as capricious as
the climate of her country How often
in the mUNt of a calm breathless sul
try day would not the storm blasts
sweep over hill and plain like so many
dread simooms At one moment the
sky is blue from horizon to horizon
not the tiniest feathery speck being
isible in its monotonous azure The
next moment the firmament would be
black with thick masses of cloud scud
ding hither and thither in all direc
tions an almost impenetrable darkness
would brood over the city shop lamps
would have to be lit and torches im
provised for business purposes while
the rain comes pattering down like so
many hailstones on rooftree and pave
ment After a brief half hour how
ever the storm would disappear the
whole heavens would become one scene
of aure and all their surroundings
would resume their wonted appear
ance The Italian woman is well
charged with such capricious electric
ity Within the space of live minutes
she can be both the dearest of Desde
monas and the fiercest of Medusas
The intensity of her anger renders it
only ephemeral but while she writhes
under its influence there is scarcely a
tigress more savage than she Poets
and novelists usually endow this crea
ture with a pair of coal black eyes and
a wealth of raven tre sses Neapolitan
and Roman IJrbs and locks po sess to a
very iarge extent these characteristics
ami although there are 111 an v Milanese
women of the same pattern as their
southern sisters 1 find among them no
small proportion of the bluest of eyes
and the blondest of tresses The Ger
man blood of these girls is accounted
for by the fact that the Austriaiis dur
ing their occupation of Lombardy in
termarried with the native- And thus
blended the cream like whiteness of
the Teuton with the dark bronzed hue
of the Italian Milan I Italy Cor Han

Brooklyn the other day he left an es
tate whose value is generally estimated
at from 3 1000000 to 0 000000 Long
years ago when Mr Robinson was a
young and driving man he
had an ambition and tiie ambition was
to accumulate a fortune of 850000
When L get that much money he
said one day to one of his clerks
then Im going to quit business right
short off and enjoy the re t ol my days
in ease And several years went by
before any tiling akin to the figure he
had tixvd upon as satisfactory was
approached but the closer he got the
le s he had to say about SiUiOO being
enough lor any sensible man One
New Years Day he entertained his
clerk Will he said Ive been
making an inventorv of things this
morning and I find that I am worth
something over 00U0
Then you are going to go out of
1 the clerk re
marked
Go out of Why man
alive what are you talking about Go
out of busine 1 have only begun
my figure is SloOUOO thats enough to
satisfy any man ami more would be a
burden But 30000 dont begin to
look so big when on get close to it as
it does when its about 84tQ00 off
Neither did 8100000 when it came to
look as big as it did once and its pos
session was but the incentive to more
energy and bigger enterprise It is
the old fever enough is never
what a mortal has V Y Times
ELECTRICITY IN FARMING
Novel Experiments Made on the larquU oi
Salisbury- Iatlield Estate
Electric power has been applied in a
very novel manner of late 011 the estate
of the Marquis of Salisbury at Hat
field where it has been in operation
for time past in various way- and
works but the last is perhaps the
most peculiar of all On one of the
farms ensilage ha--been stored in large
quantities a farm building being
turned into a silo for this purpose and
it being decided that the green food
shall be chaffed before placing it in
the silo a chaff cutter has been erected
about twenty feet above the ground
This machine is not only driven by
electric power but the same motor is
employed to elevate the grass to the
level of the chaff cutter This is done
so effectually that about four tons of
rough grass are raised and cut per
hour A sivteen light Brush machine
is the generator driving by a huge
water wheel and both are 011 the banks
of the river Le i mile and a half dis
tant The power is transmitted to one
of Siemens type specially constructed
to work as a mortar with the Bni h
machine Nor is all for the same
electric power i ingeniously applied
to work the lifts in ue at the many
haystacks on the esttte Chambtri

HOUSE OWNERSHIP
The Moral and Social Inflences It Exercise
Cnon Worklngmen
Philadelphia as the greatest work-
shop of America furnishes a striking
illustration iu point Its comparative
exemptiou from strikes is due to the
fact that as a rule the workiug man
there owns his home Hence he is as
conservative as the caoitali t Yon
may find scores of squares with nice
brick houses of workiug men not one
of which is a tenement house Phila
delphia now has double thcrnumberof
dwelling houses of any other city of Us
size in the world Tin- marvelous in
crease in its homesteads is due to its
co operative building associations
numberiug over four hundred They
have been tried for nearlv fifty years
and have proved such valuable forces
for promoting industry economy so
briety thrift and prosperity that the
State encourages tliem by exempliug
all their stock and mortgages from ttx
ation Though the holdings of these
associations exceed 50000000 they
are managed by working men at little
expense aud are always ppen to pub
lic scrutiny Failures have been very
rare lcs3thau in any other class of
financial association- The worst of
those closed during the panic of 1ST
paid ninety three ceuts on the dollar
These associations o unique tried so
long and so successfully are a model
for the working men of the country
certainly in large uianufacturing cen
ters
That T may speak authoritatively I
will epitomize certain statements kind
ly furnished by an eminent Philadel
phian specially conversant with the
subject who says The tenement house
is unknown here In the riots of
1877 the twenty thousand mem
bers of building associations acted
as an efficient counterpoise to
the lawless throngs that crowded the
streets This instinct of self-preservation
of social order was as strong
with them as with the wealthier classes
and was even more effectual It neu
tralized in their own camp the clam
ors of a vicious and riotous rabble o
that the presence of the mayor and the
police was sufficient to quell all disor
der without collision These associa
tionSJiave been a potent factor in mak
ingtiUr people prosperous and moral
encouraging sobriety and preventing
dissipation The absence of any dan
gerous tendencies cau undoubtedly be
traced to the general ownership of
homes
In Switzerland out of iSo000 house
holds 4GJ0U0 are householders Here
is one secret of the remarkable patriot
ism and prosperity of that people and
of their comparative exemption from
labor troubles Their excellent pub
lic schools and twentv nine industrial
schools all topped up by their grand I
polytechnic m titutc at Zurich includ
ing the same practical work as that ot
this Worcester Industrial Iiiatilulchave

DREADFULLY UNPRINCIPLED
The atost Surprising Liar Ever Seen by n
Urnlnlcss Englishman
We were the guests of a well known
London club said Mr Depew short
ly after we reached London and were
treated to a very nice dinner When
the speech making began General Por
ter led oft and I followed L began
with an apology saying that General
Porter had stolen my be t stories and
that Mr Doughertys stories were so
bad that I would leave all of them for
him to tell Then I looked around and
every Englishman in the room was sR
tingas solemn and unmoved as a mar
ble tatue It was a dreadfully wet
blanket to throw over a man who was
trying to be entertaining but I got
through somehow General Porter iTail
said that he had arrived in England
by the Lane route and that he had
found it ery pleasant to see the trees
growing along the lane and to hear
the bints the branches That
too was received by the Englishmen
in profound silence When the affair
was over we went after our hats aud
coats and I heard a man behind a
cloak screen say Dayvili b queer
fellahs those Americans dont you
know Stealing stories from each
other Did vou ever hear of nch
breach of confidence Ye- said
another but did you hear what that
fellow said about the Lane route Why
that man is the most surprising liar I
ever saw Do you know Ive been to
America and back by the Lane route
myself and I do assure you gentle
men that you wont find so much a a

An old Saratoga beau says that to
be attractive to the male sex a girl
should dress- in the neatest and sweet
est light dresses Her hair should be
bathed so as to look air and ileecy like
a mermaids trees- No man will ever
fall in love with a womanwho does
not to him look sweet enough to kiss
A man dont fall in love with a dress
A sweet muslin drcs will attract him
a somber three hundred dollar Worth

marry dresses they marry women
