Pending Conflict between England
British Troops on the Move.
Trouble art to Kgypt
London, Jan. 19. Muj eneitement was
caused yesterday by the uninual occurrence of
a Council at the War office on Sunday, and it
was greatly increased to-day by a report that
the Government had decided to resist any at
tempt on the part ot Turkey to occupy any
portion ol Egypt, or land troops in that
country. There is considerable bustle and ex
citement at the War office to-day. Orders hare
bten sent to Chatham, Portsmouth and Wool
wich, which caused much activity at the
great natal station. Another battalion ot
troops at Malta has been ordered to embark
at once on the steamship 1'oonah for Alexan
dria. Other troops are under orders to be in
readiness to more at a moment's notice. In
dications all point to stirring events in Egypt.
There is no doubt that the ministry is deter
mined not to allow Turkey to interfere in
Egyptian affairs, by placing an armed force
in any portion of Egypt.

Indian Affairs Portrait of Garfield.
Washington, January 19. Dr. Adair, of
Indian Territory, a Cherokee, was examined
by the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs
to-day. He said he was president of an as
sociation of Cherokee formed for the pur
pose of taking a lease of vacant
lands. The Cherokee association's
agents were .authorized to offer
$125,000 for a lease, bat it was secured by
outsiders for $400,000. The impression of
members of the native association was that
the money was used by their rivals.
Cash was a very rare commodity
among the Ch-rokeea before the lease
was made. About the time it was
made, however, members of the council
came to witness's store, with fifty dollar bills
to be changed.
A life-size portrait of the late President
Garfield has been purchased to be placed in
the room of the House Committee on Appro
priations, of which committee be was Chair

Sonic Odd Incidents of Dueling.
One of the most singular features of
dueling is that the lives of the combat

in which the ball lodged, while Roche

that the friends of the seconds did not

A WOMAN'S KACK.
Mr. Labouclicrc treats the public to
the following extract from a book pub
lished in the seventeenth century: To
tho absolute forme of a woman's Face,
there goes a faire, white forehead mark
ed with no wrinkles or lines, longer
than that of man's is, and drawing to
a roundnesso about the temples, that it
seems to represent a Turkish bowo in
verted, wherein there appears not any
tumour or gibosity, or any cloud, no
severity or sadncsc, but a plea-ant
and modest clieorfulne.-.-e, a face round,
pleasant, and elegant to behold. A
little mouth somewhat or scarce open
ing, small while teeth, somewhat short,
even, and in number just twenty-eight,
not thin, nor too hard closed together;
somewhat full lips. Corall, imitating
vernuuion, a little tiisjoyned, yet so as
the teeth are just covered, whilst shee
holds her peace or laugheth not, un
moved; that is such a woman that doth
not rest, nor bite, nor suck her lips;
these lips thus described add a wonder
ful grace and dignity to a woman's
visage. Neither is tho noe to be
omitted, the honor and ornament of
the visage, which represents the out
ward size of a Rose, of a tucane size,
strait, clcane, with certaine obtuse
nesse acute, but the holes of the nos
trils small. A round, smooth pill'd or
smooth chin, the candor whereof seems
to introduce into the beholder's mind a
certaine suspition of a Rose colour, but
no traiet at all, nor any perception of
haire is to bo seen, neither on tho lips
nor chin. A small, short, purple
tongue most certainly doth becomo a
woman, which is yet scarce or never
seen, tho tip scarce appearins; while
shee speaks; the eyebrows ought to be
black, subtle, disjoyncd, soft and
sweetly arched. Somewhat black eyes,
declining to smallnessc, concave, roll

A plain spoken Paris lady writes to
an English magazine:
There is very little hew in hosiery
this year, except that the black dies are
really fast now, and that manufacturers
have been .turning their attention to
making the hose durable as well as
good looking, hence, very many of
them are spliced and have doublo heels
so that you can wear shoes without any
fear of the tops cutting at the back of
the ankle, or of toes poking through

have been brought out, and are liked
by those who object to garters, and
who have not yet adopted suspenders.
The front of the stocking is slit from
the top to tho knee, strengthened by a
facing and laced with a smooth lacing
string. This lacing prevents the stock
ing from slipping down, at the same
timo causing it to fit neatly above the
knee. Plain colored stockings, exactly
matching the dress, are the most
fashionable, some plain wove, some
ribbed, but this year the ribs are wider.

ered stockings are worn by those who
can afford them, especially with shoes.
If you want a good-wearing woolen
stocking, get one made of alpaca wool,
wiry, light, warm and strong. If you
desire to match a dress, and not take a
great deal of wear out of thorn, there
is a new make of cheap, pure, silk
stockincs brought out in all colors.
Balbriggan. woolen, silk and spun are
the choice of stockings for winter wear.
Americans and Parisians affect the
stockings striped from top to toe, with
two colors, or black and a color. Peo
ple with weak circulations will like to
know that they can have spun silk
stockings with lleccy lining., and also
armlets in silk or nit-rino, woven so
that they can be slipped on to legs and
arms in a minute. To tlie-c people I
would recommend weiring a Shetland
spencer with long sleeves under the
bodice of their dre.. Nothing is so
warm and it takes up no room.
A BALL ROOM TOILET.
A handsome ball-room toilet for a
young married lady consists of a long,
square-cut train of cream satin, and
plain skirt of rich gold brocade; this is
cut out in wide shallow tabs, with a
box-plait of satin below. At the top of
each slit are small marabout feathers,
all spotted and sparkling with gold,
from the sides of the waist hang sash
ends of ribbon, which are loosely tied
up on the front of the skirt and fall in
long loops to its edge. The low-pointed
bodice is prettily trimmed with a
shaped-out full bertha of old lace
studded with gold-headed pins. On the
right of the basque there is also a pouf
of the golden-tipped feathers. A sec
ond costume is of black beaded tulle
and black satin worked with jet leaves,
the front of the skirt being entirely
covered with embroidery and bordered
with a heavy niching of satin. The
water-fall back is of close-gathered
tulle, thickly sewed with small loops of
cut beads. Down each side of tho
skirt are short tongues of black satin
with ribbon bows placed at the points,
and about the hips is a short festooned
scarf. A striking black velvet gown
has tho back cut in one, en princesse,
and is made with a very long train,
edged with a frilling of lace. The
front of the skirt is shaped at the edge,
the pointed tabs boiug beaded with
butterflys of jet and everywhere bor
dered with lace. Beneath the tabs is a
narrow box-plaiting of velvet. The
bodice is pointed in front at the waist,
and is much mixed with lace at the
neck and sleeves. A jabot of lace
mixed with jet btittcrilies is arranged
on the chest. Ameneati Queen.
TABLE-COVERS AND SCARFS.
It seems that tho fashion for table
covers and scarfs is not waning, for
they are continually being made, and
new devices are employed in their
decoration. A pretty one was recently
made of dark cardinal sateen, lined
with yellow; on each end is a broad
band of plush or velvet of the same
color, but of a deeper shade; it is fin
ished on each end with tassels, and
above the band is a vine in delicate
Kensington needle-work; and. by the
way, todoono piece of this needle-work
well is more satisfactory than to do
half a dozen in the Kensington paint
ing. That .is so easilr done that a
great many women take one lesson,
'and then go on "-daubing," and fancy
that they are really artistic in it.' An
other table scarf is of felt ami i- - !-
to j.u.i.i- .ill round. The ends have
thrco deep points on each; between tho
points a tassel is hung. A few inches
above the points on each end a scroll
of velvet is applied, and the edo-e of
the velvet is outlined with gilt braid or
tine cord. Another of drab felt has a
bouquet of autumn leaves in velvet ap
plied, and the ends of the felt are slash
ed to make tho fringe. Yellow sateen
makes elegant table scarfs, and with
broad bands of crimson plush and deep
embroidery in various colors above tho
band it is toned down so that there is
nothing glaring or too pronounced
about it. American Queen.
WINTER DRESS FABRICS.
The deep shading required for win
ter dress fabrics is largely supplied by
bronze. This is a leading color and
shows forth in varied tones more or less
dark. Akin to bronze are olive hues
running through many shades from
dark to light. Both are exceedingly
fashionable, anil come up with a pres
tige that overshadows many other color-,
hitherto much favored. A rich
shade of Russian blue is shown in cam
el's hair goods, cheviots anil French
cashmeres which is exceedingly hand
some. Not less noticeable are superb
wino and garnet shades, attractive in
themselves by reason of the warmth
and glow they impart in the colder
seasons of the .rear, or as resulting in
unique and gorgeous combinations,
when used in conjunction with other
rich, harmonizing shades. Marine blue.
iiko seal Drown, seems endowed with a
perennial existence, and holds, as it in
variably does, a noticeable position in
tho world of fashionable colorings.
"Two-tone" Mendings continue in fa
vor, and in delicate evening uilks these
effects are very popular. The art of
blending seems to have reached its
height in some of the exquisitely shad
ed shot silks and satins, with their rare
lights and shadows, and a sheen of
silver over all. A'eio Yorl Evening
How a Train Was Saved.
"I see in the paper," said an old en-
Sipcer, "that they have arrested a
ickle-Plate driver over in Indiana for
failing to stop his train at a grade
crossing in time to prevent an accident.
His defense is that the rails were slip
pery. That reminds me of one of my
own experiences. Several years ago I
was running a fast express one night.
We were three hours behind time, and
if there's anything in the world I hate
it's to finish a run behind schedule.
These grade crossings of one-horso
railroads are nuisances to the trunk
lines, and we had a habit of failing to
stop, merely slacking up for 'em. At
this crossing I had never seen a train
at that time of the night, and so I
rounded the curve out of the cut at full
tilt. I was astonished to see tho target
set up against me, though I had time
enough to stop. But it was a down
grade there and the track was very
slippery, and to add to the danger my
air didn't work right I whistled
sharply to have the target set clear for
me, but on looking I saw that a freight
train was standing right over the cross
ing, evidently intending to put a few
cars on our switch. I wish I could
tell you what my thoughts were at that
moment. I gave the danger whistle
and tried to stop my train, but I had
seven heavy sleepers on and we just
slid down that grade spite of every
thing I could do .Now .comes the sur
prising part of the story. Quicker
than lean tell you thebrakemanon the
freight train uncoupled a car just back
of our crossing and signaled his engi
neer to go ahead, which he did sharp
ly, but barely in time to let ns through.
In fact, the pilot of my engine took the
buffer off that rear car. 1 hrough that
little hole- we slipped, and lives and
property were saved. Now that brake
man was only a common railroader,
yet he saw that situation at a glance.
There wasn't time to run bis whole
train off the crossing, nor even half of
it barely time to pull up one car
length by prompt, quick work. He
kept his wits about him as I venture to
say not one man in a thousand would
have done, and saved my reputation,
if not my life. He is now a division
superintendent on one of the best roads
in this country; and may good luck go
with him." Train Talk in Chicago
The Beds of tbe German Peasantry.
The dwelling houses or, rather, the
apartments ara-at ono end of the barn,
and are separated from the store-room
for hay and grain by a brick partition.
The sleeping apartments are made in
the walls of the room.those in the kitch
en and dining-room being used by the
family, while the one in the parlor is
reserved for the stranger within their
gates. The walls selected for the beds
are the outside ones, as they are thick
enough to make a bed of the average
width. The walls are plastered nicely,
and tho beds aro simply a niche large
enough for a bed, the wall presenting
an unbroken surface, save tho opening
where you get into bed. These open
ings are sometimes of an ordinary
height, while others require a step-ladder
to reach them, to the complete dis
comfiture of the festive bed bug. The
beds are made first of a lot of loose
straw, surmounted by a thick feather
mattress. This is covered with a sheet,
while above it is another mattress of
fine feathers made light enough to serve
as covers. Just imagine the feelings
of an American who has to make" and
unmake his toilet after getting into bed!
The opening in the wall is closed by a
calico curtain, except the spare bed in
the parlor, which has doors of wood
that are opened and shut at pleasure.
The Study or Fingcr-Nalls.
Phrenology and chiromancy have
long ago become established branches
of pseudo-science, and books and pam
phlets on these subjects are within the
reach of everybody. There is, howev
er, a new branch of the curious meth
ods of physical research into psychical
character, which is as yet very little de
veloped. It is the study of the finger
nails, the shape and color of which are
said to indicate certain traits of charac
ter. Finger nails, according to the ex
perts of the new fad, if long and slen
der, denote imagination and poetic
feelings, love of art, and laziness; if
long and flat, they aro the sign of
prudence, good sense, and grave men
tal faculties; if wide and snort, of an
ger and rudeness, controversy, and ob
stinacy; a healthy color signifies virtue,
health, happiness, courage, and liber
ality; dry and brittle nails are signs of
anger, cruelty, quarrel, culminating ev
en in murder; curved in the shape of
claws, hypocrisy and wickedness; soft,
feebleness of body and mind; and, last
ly, we are told that short nails, gnaw
c"d down to the tlesh, signify silliness
and dissipation. Whichlast injunction
would make it worth while to commend
the study of nails at least to schoolboys
laboring under the burden of mathe
matical studies, or the heavier corvee
of an unwelcome imposition. Pall
