simple bias or crosscut band, through

as not to enlarge the flguro by a line.
The flounces are shaped and covered
with lace like those of last year.

The Sleeve tha Feature.
A feature of the new gown Is, of
course, the sleeve, that has been go
ing through the same process of evo
lution, or rather revolution, on which
the skirts are just entering. There is
no question that fashion has gone
back again to the tight sleeve, aud
now there is just as much attention
paid to having the sleeve tit closely
over the upper part of the urm as thoro
is to haviug a skirt lit absolutely
smoothly over tho hips. There are
many people to whom a close-Ultiug
sleeve is not bocoming, and as yet
fashion is kiud enough to allow a cur
tain amount of trimming rows of
tucks, or soft folds, or even caps over
the very top of the sleeve but the
very smartest ooata and waists are
quite plain. Cuffs have come into
fashion again, that is, the culfs of the
same material as the gown, or of fur,
or laoe. They are turned baok from
the hand and are flaring in design,
and even when the sleeve is cut very
long over the baud aud in poiuts, the
points cau be turned baok to look
like flaring cutis. The coats trimmed
with fur ore very rnuoh smarter this
way thau they were with the plain
sleeves, but on the sleeve of any
waist that has to be woru under a
coat the fashion is awkward.

bndly informed on the subject. In
holding that Heed owed tho Journal
16.75, tho court decided that he had
never given the publishers propet
notice of his desire to have the pnpei
stopped. Whilo Heed testified thai
he had ordered the carrier to stop the
paper, the boy swore that he had never
received any such notice. Ou this
point the court held that even if it
were proven that lteed had told the
boy to stop, this would not be suffi

the boy was tho agent of tho publishei
to the exteut of receiving orders foi
discontinuing subscriptions. The de

A case of interest to newspaper pub
lishers occurred recently at West
brook, N. Y., wherein u Arm of news
paper publishers brought suit, and
obtained judgment for $'J aud costs,
on acoount of subscription charges.
The publishers admitted that the de
fendant never ordered the paper.
Tho facts wero not disputed thut
when they bought in the list of an
other paper in the town, this man's
uame'was ou the list, but without his
orders. The now management wrote
to all whoso names were ou tho list
they had bought, offering to stop the
papers of all who did not expect to
pay. The defendant did not answei
this notice, but kept on taking the
paper, and then refused to pay on the
ground that he never subscribed. Tho
plaintiffs argued that the general rule
of law, that a man must pay for what
he receives and uses, applies to news
papers as well as other things, nnO
the court sustained that view.

The secret of tho democratic eflior
escenco of Australasia is the same as
that of tho new vigor shown there by
Europeau plants aud animals, says
Henry D. Lloyd in tbe Atlantic. The
secret is the same as that of the long
! step ahead of the mother country
takeu by Hew Luglaud, with its Puri
tans and Pilgrims. The wonderful
propagative power of democratic ideas
in Australasia is a fact of the same
order as tho miraculous multiplica
tion of the Europeau sweetbricr and
rabbits introduced there. The old
ideas ami institutions, given a new
chance in a now country, gaiu a new
vigor. It is their new world. Hopes
nud purposes, which hud fossilized iu
tho old country, live ngaiu. When
the holdback of custom, laws, aud old
families is removed, there is a leap
forward as from a leash. What Aus
tralasia has been doing is only what
England and the older countries have
been slowly attempting to do. Para
doxically, too, this renaissance of de
mocracy in Australasia is not tho fruit
of colonization by religious enthusi
asts, or sooiul reformers, or patriots
choosing exile, but of colonization by
plain, every-doy, matter-of-fact Eng
lishmen, thinking only of making a
child's frook of figured delaine. A

Numerous complaints had come be
fore a certain public official iu regard
to the quality of food served to the
inmates of one of the ptiblio institu
tions, aud he determined to investi
gate. Making his way to the building
just about dinner-time, he encoun
tered two men currying a huge,
steaming boiler. "Put that kettle
down I" be ordered brusquely; and
the men at once obeyed. '"Get me a
spoon!" he next commanded. The
man that brought tho spoon was about
to say something, but was ordered to
keep sileut, "Take olf the lid!" was
the next command. "I'm going to
taste it." The two men, oowed by
the otlluiul's bruiitjiieness, watched
him gulp down a good mouthful. "Do
you mean to say that you call this
soup? the onioial demanded. "Why,
it tastos to me more like dirty water."
"So it is, sir," replied oue of the
men, respectfully, "We were scrub-

rhcnol, or carbolic acid, discovered
by Mitscherlioh in 1834, being one of
tho most powerful antiseptics and dis
infectants, purifies the atmosphere
from noxious gases and destroys the
infectious germs of disease. Its valu
able autiseptio properties have beeu
introduced into surgery with great
success by the present Lord Lister,
President of the ltoyul Society. From
carbolio acid is obtained a valuable
series of coloring matters, ranging
from a beautiful yellow, i. e., picric
acid, to reds, oranges, browns aud
mauy other colors.
Dr. It. Hauthal.an Argentine savant,
has put forward a startling theory con
cerning the remains of gigantic sloths,
related to the great megatherium and
the mylodon, recently found in Pata

vhose race is now extinct, was kept
in a domosticated state by the prehis

caveat Ultima Esporanza, whore many
indications of tho former presence of
tho huge sloths have boeu found, is
regarded by Doctor Hauthol as having

as a stable for tbe beasts.
Lake Superior appears to exercise a
greater effect upon the annual amount
of precipitation of rain and snow near
its shores than any other of the great

aud Ontario also show more precipita

The great columns iu tho Forum

The destruction by pressure of the

I - WOMAN'S WORLD, j
THE POST-CRADUATE CIRL.
Only Tito t'lilrereltlet In the United Htates
Sow That Will Not Have Her.
It's rather difficult to understand
the position of a university that opens
its doors to women in post-grnduato
work in certain departments aud koeps
them rigidly closed iu others. It all
depends upon tho professor. One
may be willing to admit her into his
laboratories while auother may see
nothing but disappointment following
in her wake and may absolutely re
fuse. Then the post-graduate girl
can do nothing but obey the mandate
that bids her depart.
There are two universities in this
oonntry that have never yielded to the
porsnasive tongue of the ambitious
yonng woman. Princeton will have
none of her, and Clark University has'
drawn its lines against her. But eve
rywhere elso the wedgo has been en
tered, and the young women have
appeared in numbers that are growing
every year. She is hard to equal, the
Some of the women's colleges make
special provision for her nowadays.
Bryn Mawr is really ahead in that
work, for she not only gives fellow
ships, but she is striving to become a
university, with post-graduate courses
all her own, Vassnr grants sevctal
fellowships; Mount Holyoke is work
ing for the same end; Smith, so fur
as is known, pays little attention to
the demand. It usd to be thought
that for advanced work it was neces
sary to study abroad. But it is rap
idly coming to be the foot that the
best facilities for post-graduate work
may be found in this country. It is
fortunate, too, for the young woman
who has no more thau an A. B. after
her name might as well give np, if
teaching is her career. She never
can rise to the higher positions.
For teachers there is a deal iu n do
greo, and so mauy of them spend all
their spnro timo working for a few
more letters to write after their
names, eveu while they are working
lor a little more money at the same
time. For, though a college girl may
be frivolous, the post-graduate student
never is. She has settled down to the
stern realities of life, so to speak, and
she has no time for anything but
earnest work. The degreo she is
after is a definite goal, toward which
she travels by the quickest possible
road. There is a difference, however,
between the man who goes iu for
post-graduate work and the young
woman. Perhaps because it is more
difficult to find the woman who is a
student and nothing besides, is the
reason that the young women post
graduates strike oue as being ahead
of tho young men some ways; they
seldom become mere grinds.
The degree of Ph.D. is not com
monplace yet. It may be in time, and
then the post-graduate girl will need,
perforco, to go iu for still more de
grees. She spends about three years
working for that one degreo now,
although in some departments iu
Columbia, for instance, it tako a much
longer time. But the simple fact that
she has a Ph.D. attached to her name
counts for little iu comparison with
tho name of the college from which
she obtaiuod it. The more easy
thoy aro to get the less they mean,
necessarily. Degrees from Chicago,
Lelaud Stanford, Cornell and the
Univorsity of Michigan rauk high,
and in all of these women are ad
mitted on an exact equality with men,
Columbia gives fine opportunities for
graduato work in tho departments
that are open, but though there are
fellowships no woman ever obtains
Some of the young women seem to
havo an unlimited capacity for work,
as iu the case of oue high school
teacher who teaches all day, has a
number of private pupils besides, and
attends lectures in the eveniugs. It's
a case of working all day aud study
ing at night, and that is what many of
the degree-seekers do. As u rule,
the professors like to have them in
their classes, because they are so
thoroughly in earnest. Now York
