"It is the sweetest flower I ever

known Baltimore florist, displaying a
new violet just discovered by Mr. A. P.
Gordon Cumming. on Iiis place-, near
Sykesville, Md. The foliage leaves on
this violet are longer than the ordinary
wild or cultivated violet. The flower
leaves of the new violet are a soft
white, striped or mottled with light and
dark purple. Unlike the other culti?
vated violets, the new one is a single
violet. All the cultivated violets
have lutherto. without exception, been
double. Single violets, until this dis?
covery of Mr. Cumming's, have been
without perfume, but the Sykesville
cultivated single violet has a wealth of
rich perfume which cannot be sur?

A Dose of Her Own Medicine.
"Talk about a woman's inconsisten?
cy! Well, 1 had an example of it to?
night that fairly took my breath away,"
and the speaker took a pull at bis ci?
gar. 'T -was at tho theatre, and of
course my sent was directly beliind;
one which contained a woman with a
big hat. The hat was not only high,
biit it was topped off with waving
plumes, and it soon started in to spoil
tlje evening for me. The woman bob
"btkl her head from side to side in a way
that played the deueo with my nerves,
because I was kept jumping from side
to side in my efforts to catch glimpses
of; the actors. At first I didn't know
what was the cause of her activity, but
filially I discovered that the woman in
front of her had on even a bigger hat
than she wore herself. Well, I gave up
trying to see tho stage tho rest of the
fhjst act and devoted myself to enjoy?
ing the plight of my tormentor, as she
( dodged on tins side and then on that
to avoid tho big hat in front of her.
"At the end of tho act I got another
seat, where I could see both the stogo
and the woman who had sat before me.
She wasn't young or pretty (women
who wear big hats at tho theatre sel?
dom are), and I confess I took great
glee In seeing her go tlnough the con?
tortions through which she had recently
put me. She became furious, and
dropped remarks to her husband which
I was sure were by no mean* compli?
mentary to the woman hi front.
"After the play I managed to get
alongside the woman and walk out of
the theatre at her elbow. If she wasn't
muttering all the spltcfi? tilings Imagin?
able to her husband about tho poor
creature whose hat had put her in such
a temper, and bless you, it probably
never occurred to her that she had been
doing the samo thing herself which she
thought so mean In her guilty sister. I
hope that her experience taught her to
look for the beam hi her own eye first,
but I've no idea it did."?New York
In olden times when pilgrims came
from the Holy Land they wore as an
emblem of then vows a pretty brown
and white shell, called St. James' shell,
now better known as a scallop shell.
Large shells of this kind were early
utilized as baking dishes, and have
given their name to a great number of
excellent scalloped or 1 'escalloped''
preparations of fish and meat. Of late
years Insurious taste has demanded
something inoro costly, and silver shells
in the shape of the old sea shell, at $50
a dozen, have taken tho place of
scallop shells at sixty cents a dozen.
The smaller scallop shells ore exceed?
ingly pretty for many decorative pur?
poses. Their wavy shape and delicate
hues of brown and cream are so beau?
tiful that they have been used for fancy
work by many people who would have
been shocked if they had known the
shell was as common as an oyster, and
was thrown away from our market
stalls by the bulk.
The natural scallop shell is covered
with a rough coating, which is easily re?
moved by soaking it in a weak solution
of chlorate of lime and water, in pro?
portion of half a pound of lime to a gal?
lon of water. Tue shells must each be
pierced four times on each side of the
base and once higher up on each side If
they are to be .-own on velvet or silk to
border a cushion >>r form a wreath
around the base of a pretty circular
work bag. This is done with a single
drop of caustic. Only a tiny drop must
be used, and a hole must be Instantly
drilled through with a strong needle.
As soon as a hole is pierced the shell
must be dropped in cold water to stop
the action of the acid, which might
otherwise spread. As soon as the shells
are pierced varnish them with the finest
wltlte varnish used by artists. It will
hardly show, but will bring out the col?
ors as holding a shell in water does.?

The Inutile Scheme of a Tramp.
An attempt was made to wreck the
Tacoma bound Northern Pacific train
at Linton, seven miles north of Port
laud, Ore. The train was suddenly
flagged by a tramp named F. S. Tay?
lor, who told a strange story of an en?
counter with train wreckers. Ho said
that while walking on the road to Port?
land he saw three men piling old ties
and fallen trees high on tho track.
When they saw him they put a pistol
to his head and made him take a seat
on a log and keep quiet while they
proceeded with their work. Their work
so engrossed them that he managed to
shy away unnoticed just in time to pre?
vent a wreck.
Taylor was taken aboard the train
and treated like a prince. He was sent
back from Centralia, and Sheriff Kelly
took charge of 1dm to get a description
of the wreckers. Taylor claimed that
he knew nothing about the country,
but he was so minute in his details in
describing the obstructions piled on the
traek that the sheriff suspected some
tin ng. Finally, he turned to Taylor,
saying: "You did this." Taylor wilted,
and confessed and told all. He said he
piled the stuff on the track and pre?
vented a wreok for tho purpose of be?
ing richly rewarded by the company.
He was arrested and is now In Jail.
There were 200 passengers on the train.

THE DUKE OF CLARENCE.
Tho Now Titles Conferred Upon Prince
Albert Victor of Wales.
The queen has conferred tho dignity
of a peerage of the United Kingdom
upon Prince Albert Victor; Tho future
heir to tho throne is created Duke of
Clarence and Avondale, and Earl of
Athlone. Although it is a matter of
course that a royal priuce in the direct
lino of succession, who has arrived at
man's estate, should formally take his
place among our territorial nobility,
the occasion, now that it has arrived,
claims, from more than one point of
view, tho sympathetic interest of tho
queen's loyal subjects.
In such cases the selection of titles is
a point that always arouses, and legiti?
mately arouses, ti certain curiosity. The
revival of the dukedom of Clarence
will gratify thoso who value tho preser?
vation of titles that have left a mark
upon tho pages of our history. Al?
though originally an Irish dignity, de?
rived from tho "honor'' of Clare, tho
dukedom of Clarence is an English title
by auciont association. It was tlrst con?
ferred by Edward III in 1862 upon one
of his sons. But the prince with whom
the title is most familiarly connected in
our annals is that Duke of Clarence
whose traditional fate as well as the ex?
pressive words of Shakespeare that serve
as his epitaph are known to every school?
boy. It will be remembered that, after
the title had been extinct for more than
3l)0 years, George III revived it In favor
of Ids third son, Prince "William, after?
ward William IV. Moreover, the late
Duke of Albany was Karl of Clarence
in addition to his other titles, and here
it is reiuarkablo that what had always
before been a dukedom dwindled to the
dimensions of an earldom.
Avondale, to which, conjointly with
Clarence, the dukedom is made appur?
tenant, is presumably the Lanarkshire
pariah which contains the line histori?
cal ruin of Avondale castle; while the
Earldom of Athlone is a titlo which be?
came extinct as recently as 184-J.
It is, of course, as tho Duke of Clar?
ence that Prince Albert Victor will be
known during the lifetime of tho queen
and Prince of Wales; .and thus he will
bear a title which two members of his
family have borne already. The his?
tory, however, of the young prince's
new dignities is of less account than the
reflection that they are one more out?
ward sign of his assiunption of the re?
sponsibilities and duties which in these
days make a prince's lot arduous and
his life of tho busiest. Prince Albert
Victor, or tho Duke of Clarence, as we
should now call him, has arrived at
that period of full manhood at winch
ha can relieve the Prince of Wales of a
large share of public engagements wldch
have hitherto devolved upon him ex?
A Student's Heavy Sleep.
A wild and clanging uproar was
heard in tho Elm house. Auburn. The
landlord, the clerk and the porter were
all in it. It was no party of roisterers
and no lawless disturbance. Much as
tho landlord regretted it he felt com?
pelled to do it, and ho was only doing
what was laudable ;uid proper. He
was trying to awaken a guest. The
Maine State college baseball team put
up at the famous inn on Friday, and
the ten men were to occupy three
rooms, one of them a large room with
two double beds and calculated to ac?
One of the young men went to bed at
9 o'clock, and in an absent minded
mood or unaware that he was to have
company during the night he turned
the key. At 10:30 the other young me n
wanted a nap. They found the door
locked. The landlord was railed and
he tried mild tapping on the casement.
The strength and tempo of the serenade
both increased by degrees. Finally a
wild and awful thundering fell upon
that door. The man from Orano never
budged an inch or shortened a gargle
on his nasal solo, for he slept. The at?
tendant throng around the door grew
greater. Some laughed and some were
alarmed. A traveling man offered to
bet even that the man had passed away,
but nobody would bet on so serious a
Tho door was kicked ;uid banged
again and supplications were ejected
through the keyhole and over the tran?
som for him to open up, but he never
opened, for he slept?a dreamless, peace?
ful sleep. Most of the guests were
awake by this time. A practical solu?
tion was reached by the porter, who
punched out tho key on the other side
by careful and patient manipulation
and then unlocked the door with a pass
key. The three state college boys then
went hi and went to bed, and strango
but true the one-of-the-seven-sleepers,
who lay there in smiling slumber in his
couch, did not awake even then, but
slept on and on and never rolled over.

Diverse Experiences with Silos.
In experiments made at the Missouri
station by Director Sanborn, to te?t the
question of the superiority of food pre?
served in a silo over that air dried, the
the results reported were unfavorable to
the silo in several particulars. ? It was
shown that corn fodder may be success?
fully dry stored and at cheaper rates
than when stored green; that a given
amount of fodder dry stored will last
longer than the same amount put into
the silo, and that tho dry fodder was
more cheaply handled and the general
effects of the feeding were better than
those received from feeding ensilage.
un the other band, an experiment
made with ten cows at the Michigan
station showed that the ensilage from an
acre and a half of corn (although nearly
a quarter af it spoiled from a lack of care
in filling and from exposure during the
interim of dried fodder feeding) lasted
longer than the stalks and corn and cob
meal from an equal area adjoining, dry
cured, and that the cows made more
pounds gain on it than on tho dried fod?
der and meal. Ih answer to inquiries
addressed by the station to Michigan
farmers as to the comparative cheapness
of storage in the silo, and whether this
method was considered by them an eco?
nomical and satisfactory way of preserv?
ing food and one they would recommend,
the replies were uniformly favorable to
Pretty Presses for the Hume.
Many of the actresses, who ore as
particular about their house as their
stago dresses, wear a long coat or opera
cloak, tightly girdled at the waist and
left open in front to show a pretty
white petticoat. A lady up town, a
doctor by profession and something of
a crank on hygienics, wears cheese
cloth yoke dresses that cost ?1 each,
and she has a new one every six weeks.
The heck is yoked, made of silk or vel?
vet, to winch the straight breadths of
cheese cloth are gathered. Three yards
of ribbon, sewed over tho shirred belt,
is the only attempt at decoration. One
month she receives her morning pa?
tients in pale blue cheese cloth, worked
with navy blue silk; tho next month
the cloth is pink and the yoke maroon
velvet, and Just now she is wearing
cream cloth gathered to a yoke of
brown velvet. Brown ribbon is gir?
