The encomiums and admiration of man and has since the dewy
morning of existence when Adam was thrown into rapturous
ecstacies by the presence of his "Help Iat," fresh from the
hands of her Creator, beautiful, bewitching, charming, ador
able, as many of her descendants have proven since 1 as
they rambled over the green sward and by the baboiing
brook, where the balmy zephyrs were ladencd with fragrance
of flowers, music of birds and the vision charmed with luscious
fruits and mirrored lakes, feminine decoration undoubtedly
commenced in that garden. After the fig leaf Mother Hub
bard there came sunny ringlets studded with roses, violets and
forget-me-nots. Eve's descendants will find winning man's
admiration easy by getting one of those lovely Trimmed Hats
on wire frame, silk, lace and satin flowers, only $498, or the
Napoleons at $3.98, or Dutch Bonnets at $2.98, or choice of

The outline of the proposed election Mil
conference committees, ns Riven In tho
Journal this morning, was declared by n
member of one of the committees to-nlelit
to be correct. There arc one or two other
points, however, upon which the com
mittees are practically acrced, that were
not covered In this mornlnc'1 dispatches.
If the bill recommended by the committees
becomes a law campilsn committees will
have nolhlmr to do with the selection of
JudKcs and clerks. The two men appointed
by the Rovernor will choose these olllcers
for their party, nnd the commissioner ap
pointed by the mayor will select thorn for
Ills party. Their decisions will be abso
lute. These JticlRcs will Ret J3 ii day for
five das, three days ot registration, ono
ot revision and one of election. It will
cost any one of them $100 should lie fall
to sere without the good and sulllclcnt
exemos provided by the bill.
Tho committees are of tho opinion, too,
that these Judges and clerks should be ex
empt from Jury service only during their
service o.s election olllcers.
It was thought yesterday that the con
ference committees would be able to re
port to-morrow. It Is now certain that
they will not report before Monday. It
may be late In the week, lloth bills un
der consideration are voluminous affairs,
each containing about 23,000 words, and ns
tho committees are going over them sec
