THE LOOM OF DREAMS.
K broider the world upon a loom;
I broider with dreams my tapestry.
here in a little lonely room
I am master of earth and sea,
I And the planets come to me.
I broider my life into the frame,
I broider my love, thread upon thread,
Trhe world goes by with its glory and
Crowns are bartered, and blood is shed;
I sit and broider my dreams instead.
IAnd the only world is the world of my
And my weaving the only happiners.
For what is the world, but what it seems,
And who knows but that God, beyond
Sits weaving worlds out of loneliness?

In a Toy Shop. o
E walked into the toy shop
with the uncertain air bred
by unfamliiarlty. lie was
not old-perhaps fifty; he
may, indeed, have been younger. The
lines about his mouth and the crow's
feet about the eyes told of a life that
had been none too easy, and yet there
was that sphtle air of prosperity about
him, too, that in turn told its tale.
Outside in the street the sun bent
flown on the white sidewalk with a
glare that reflected even into the care
fully shaded shop. Behind the count
ers the young women stood or sat In
small grnups. They looked cool and
-pretty in their light summer frocks.
Dn the counters were toys, heaps piled
on heaps, it seemed to the man, al
though the arrangement was orderly
For a moment he stood in the door
way. After the glare of the street the
shop seemed almost darkness. Grad
nally the forms of the young women
were outlined to his sight, and then he
saw dimly the things on the counters.
An officious and ousequlous young
man came forward rubbing his hands.
Within a minute the man was in
charge of a cool-looking young wom
an, with a pretty smile and a gracious
manner. Almost before he knew it
the man was talking with her and ex
plaining things that needed no expla
"I want to get a er-er-cr, a toy,
you know," he said.
"Yes, sir," said the young woman.
"Here is a very pretty doll. How
would that do?" and she brought out
a wonderful creation with eyes that
opened and shut, and long blonde
curls. It was dressed in a pale blue
silk gown. "How do you like that?"
asked the young woman, holding the
doll up for Inspection. Then she
pressed a hidden spring.
"Mamma, mamma, papa, papa!"
said the doll.
"Great Scott! what's that?" almost
shouted the man.
"I was making the doll talk," replied
"Do they make dolls that talk?"
asked the man.
"Why." said the girl, with a pitying
smile, "they did that ten years ago."
"Did they?" said the man; "well,
you see, it's a good many years since
I've seen any toys."
"Shall I send It home." asked the
"No," said the man, "I don't think
that would do at all. I suppose you
think I'm a pretty old man to be buy
Ing toys," he continued, irrelevantly,
"but you see, I've been So busy trying
to get rich that I never had tln) to
think of getting married till about two
years ago. Been out West all the
time," he continued, half sadly, "and,
somehow, I didn't see many things like
that out there."
"Here is something else that you
might like, sir," interposed the young
woman, as she brought out a wonder
ful locomotive and train of cars. She
pressed a spring and the engine bell
rang, the whistle blew, and off the
train started on the circular track.
"Is that what they call a toy?" asked
"That is certainly a toy," replied the
girl, with a laugh.
"I wish I could remember some of
the things I had to play with when I
was a boy," mused the man; "I don't
suppose you could get a Noah's ark,
could you?" he continued doubtfully.
"I'll see, sir." said the young wom
an, "but they're awfully old-fash
"Mebbe so; mebbe so," said the man
The young woman walked to the
rear of the shop and soon returned
with the toy in question.
Yes, there it was. The Noah's ark!
It hadn't changed a bit in all the years
that had fled. The same old gabled
roof, one side of which opened like the
lid of a box. The same square win
dows, the same narrow ledge around
the bottom, and the picture of the
dove, bearing Ihe branch of olive
painted on the side.
Slowly the man opened the box and
began to take out the little figures.
His hands actually trembled with de
light. The wonderfully made green
trees, standing on the little brown
bits of wood that are meant to repre
sent mother earth. The quaint figures
of men and women; the soldiers with
their little wooden staffs. And then
the animals. Where has their like ever
been seen before?
Ie spread them out before him and
looked at and beyond them, and the
shop and the glare of the sidewalk
without vanished from his vision.
Green fields stretched before him, and
deep in their hollows nestled the little
white house with the bright green
blinds and the red chimney.
In front of the house was a garrow
little walk bordered on each side with
sweet peas in bloom. How they
smell! He could even smell them here
In the shop. Then he looked up. The
girl was wearing a bunch of those
wonderful blossoms In her belt. He
had not noticed them before, and he
bad almost forgotten how sweet those
blossoms can smell There is a small
lad running up the narrow walk to
ward the bouse. One arm, broken by
a fall from a tree, hangs limp by his
side. A sweet-faced woman comes

cry of tender love gathers him In her

Writing to a sporting contemporary
a gentleman offers to receive any nuen
ber of hedgepigs "up to a thousand,"
as he believes they would do good on
his estates in Devonshire. Some peo
ple may be disposed to wonder what
service can be rendered to agriculture
by creatures that do occasionally make
a late supper of chickens and part
ridges. The truth is, the hedgehog has
never received full justice. Hie is,
take him all in all, an admirable
beast. Everybody knows that the
hedgehog eats snails and slugs, but
few people, perhaps, have realized that
be is also a liberal consumer of moles.
Now, there are many estates in Devon
shire where the mole employs a band
of men to keep his family down, and
there are places in Surrey, quite near
London, where neither man nor trap
can stop the ravages of tlrese creatures
on what is intended to be the lawn.
Where the soil is sandy the mole lives
deep, and he will fling up a chain of
veritable mountains in his journeys
under one's lawn in the course of a
single night. This conduct may be
borne with in parks and meadows, but
in gardens it becomes intolerable. It
may be suggested, therefore, to those
householders whose lawns are ravaged
by moles whom neither trap nor pro
fessional trapplst can control that a
few hedgehogs in the garden might
bring the pestilential moles to some
sense of the fitness of things.-London

a Exposition has very appropriately been
dedicated to our neighbors in the West
t All the savage races have manifested
V a great fondness for strong, crude col
ors, and these will be found on the
[ buildings nearest the main entrance.
e The advancement of man in intelli
1 gence and civilization has been marked
_ by a desire for more refined color com
binations, and the culminating point of
I subtlety and grace of color being in the
t Electric Tower, which, representing
the highest advance in material civill
zation and occupying the leading posi
tion architecturally and sculpturally of
s the whole Exposition, naturally enough
has come in for the finest color notes.
3 It is a happy feature of the color
scheme that the buildings upon which
_ the artist would naturally lavish pow
erful colors all lie about the southern
entrance. A regular gradation from in
1 tense to less pronounced coloring is
thus possible. As the majority of peo
ple will come in from the southern en
trance they will get an impression of
1 bright, rich, fresh color. They will not,
however, have time to grow weary
with the brilliancy. Before their eyes
are jaded they will have got into the
region of more softly tinted surfaces.
It must not be supposed, however,
t that the primitive color schemes are In
themselves harsh or bad or crude. Va
rious devices have been adopted for se
t For one thing, the greater part of the
exterior wall spaces are all in warm
white. Color is employed only at struc
tural points in the architecture, as
about entrances. Furthermore, no
primitive color is brought into direct
contrast with other primitive colors; a
mass of ivory white always intervenes.
This gives great brilliancy and pre
vents chromatic discords. The quality

The fil of simple observation becomes
wearisome. Music becomes a restful
solaco. The magician's wand lends
new life to tired limbs. There was
some froth in the Chicago Midway.
But regarding the Midway after the
lapse of seven years one is convinced
that out of it came more enduring and
practical information and education
than there was of mere ephemeral
foam. Years of travel leading to some
of the remotest quarters of the earth
would hasre been required to give even
the casual observer so much Insight
into the manners, customs and conduct
of peoples differing from us in race,
color, religion and habits of life and
thought as might have been gathered
in a single journey up and down the
purlieus of the Midway. An excellent
condition of the Midway was its con
centration. While it was of the expo
sition, it was wholly by itself.. Some
things shown illustrated the processes
of important business methods, like the
making of glass or of lace, the culture
of ostriches, the work of the diver in
the depths of the sea. Some showed
medieval structures, like the Castle of
Blarney, the Streets of Old Vienna and
of Constantinople. Some were wholly
given to hilarity, like the Streets of
Cairo, filled with innocent fun. These
very scenes may not be repeated at the
Pan-American, but others equally in
structive, equally interesting, equally
amusing, will be shown.
Above all, around all, will be display
ed the effects of scientific manifesta
tions, particularly of electricity, with
such exuberance of force and such va
riety of effect as the world has not
heretofore seen. The picture may not
be overdrawn. The most marvelous
anticipation will be realized.

THE BEAUTIFUL ORIENT.
It I. One of the Midway's Interesting
Nearly $3,000,000 will be required to
construct and equip the wonderful
Midway at the Pan-American Exposi
tion. The greatest care has been taken
to prevent any approach toward the
"fake" show, and the visitor may rest
assured that he will not be submitted
to fraud or extortion so long as he re
mains upon the Exposition grounds. It
is difficult to single out any attraction
in this section as more prominent or
worthy than another, for all have their
special merit and novelty.
The Beautiful Orient will represent
life as it existed in the East before
the advent of the modern tourist.
Gaston Akoun, director of this conces
sion, is arranging to have native repre
sentative characters to convey proper
impressions of oriental customs and
manners of living. He will have plenty
of room in which to display the differ
ent salient features that would appeal
in the strongest terms to people ac
customed to our western civilization.
A holy Mecca will be the meeting place
of tired and .worn pilgrims who will
constantly arrive, make their offer
ings in the various mosques or reli
gious temples and disperse. Eight
streets will diverge from this objective
point, each representing a distinctive
local section of the orient. A street
in Constantinople will be thoroughly
Turkish, even to the vagabond dogs.
Morocco will be represented by a
street which will illustrate the life and
habits of the Moors. Algerian life will
receive attention, and a street will be
borrowed from Algiers for the pur
pose. Typical illustrations in a like
manner will be taken from Egypt,
Tunis, Persia, Tripoli and Turkey in
Asia. While looking through these
sections visitors could easily imagine
themselves in the midst of the ancient
city the counterpart of which they are

value of milk products aie known, and
the increasing consumption of milk
and its products bespeaks much for
the future of the dairy business.
Few people have any adequate con
ception o&the present magnitude of the
dairy industry. In the United States
and Canada there is one dairy cow to
every four persons, or 20,000,000 cows.
The annual milk production is estimat
ed at $550,000,000. Add to this the val
ue of dairy cows, $650,000,000, and we
have $1,200,000,000. To this add the in
vestments in dairy appliances, and we
reach a grand total of $2,000,000,000 in
vested in this great industry in the
United States and Canada.
A large, beautiful building located
near the Agricultural building will be
devoted exclusively to Dairy Products
and Dairy Apparatus.
All the milk products will be exhibit

for the purpose of maintaining as far

the products on exhibition. Exhibitors
whose products form a portion of their

Cultured Empress Haroko.
.Impress Haruko of Japan attains
her fifty-first birthday in May, being
two years older than her husband, and
is a woman of remarkable character,
as her face plainly shows. Since re
ceiving the crowp her prime object
has been the amelioration of the Jap
anese woman's position. She has
founded several colleges for young
women and made herself famous
throughout two continents by opening
up at Tokio the much-talked-of
woman's hospital. It is also due to
her that Japanese women have aban
doned the barbarous habit of black
ening their teeth and shaving off their
But the empress's public work has
never caused her to neglect her duties
as wife and mother. A more devoted
couple cannot be found in the island,
and the emperor has frequently shown
his fondness for her by dedicating
poems "to my darling Haruko." He
has implicit confidence in her judg
ment. No matter of state is ever.set
tied without first having been talked
over with the empress.-Chicago
Max O'RelPs Ideal Woman.
Max O'Rell has recently been dis-l
cussing for the benefit of his Ameri
can readers the question, what con
stitutes a woman's charm-not simp
ly the charm that attracts, but the
charm that holds, not mere passing
fascination, but "the tie that binds."
The woman whom this Frenchman
would protect and cherish in return
for all the sweet attentions she should
pay him must be we read, rather
pretty, of a good figure, clever, cheer
ful, "punctual as a utilitary man," not
too serious, a little frivolous, and of
an artistic nature with literary tastes.
"But above all," the essayist con
eludes, "she should be a keen, sensi
ble little diplomat, who would make
it' the business of her life to study me
as I would make it the business of
my life to study her; a woman who
would be in turn, according to circum
stances, a housewife, a counselor, a
pal, a wife, a sweetheart, a nurse, a pa
tient, the sunshine of my life, and al
ways a confidante, a friend and a
partner. To my mind the lovable
woman must possess, too, all the
womanly virtues of sweetness, devo.
tion, reliability. She may have little
failings, little contradictions, but
these only make her the more lokable.
8eparate waists are made of tafeta
with lace. Those of taffeta are in
wide pleats with the edges of the
pleats stitched, and the newest are
trimmed with'round cape collars, the
lowest collar edged with a- fancy
braid. The under-sleeves of a. differ
ent material from the waist are not
nearly so tfashionable as they were,
and arue made much smaller and less
conspicuous. The waists of all one
color of tafRetsa and of a plain silk or
of IAberty satin are preferred to
those of brocaded or yured velvet,

Care of the Teeth.
If the teeth are neglected they wllt
decay, and indigestion and a foul
breath are sure to fillow. If the teeth
are decayed the inability to masticate
food follows, and the food, not being
properly masticated, cannot be proper
ly digested, hence a foul breath. Even
in small children the teeth should
never , be neglected, and mother.
should, with the appearance of the
very first, care for them. As soon as
a baby is old enough it should be
taught how to brush its teeth. The
first teeth, when neglected, infect
their successors which are first to ap
pear, and when once the mischief is
begun it is very difficult to stop. A
moderately soft brush is preferable
to one with stiff bristles, and for a
cleanser a powder of pulverized chalk
and castile soap in equal parts,
flavored with peppermint or winter
green, in the very best possible thing
to use. Occasionally a little table salt
may be used. This will whiten the
teeth and harden the gums. Do not
use, or allow children to use, any of
the tooth washes generally advertised,
Their use injures the teeth beyond re
pair by eating off the enamel, which
nothing can replace. For an excelleit
mouthwash tincture of myrth can be
ured. This can also be obtained in
small quanttles at any drug store,
and its occasional use is beneficial in
hardening the gums. and sweetening
the mouth generally.-Mrs. Mary
Easton, in American Queen,
Styles for the Spring Sease .
Never we-e there more novelties in
hosiery and underwear than the shops
are showing at the present time. It
seems settled that fancy stockings are
to be worn almost exclusively, and
that colors are to take precedence of
black. Color has appeared in Jersey
underwear, too, in an entirely new
character, and is guaranteed not to
fade. Even union suits now can be
bought in light blue, pink, lavender
The straight front corset is growing
in popularity, and the indications are
that the old styles will have disap.
peared entirely in another year. Sum.
mer corsets in girdle and empire fash.
ions are shown in large quantities, so
it is evident that the merchants. ex.
pect a demand for them.
The straight front corset has neces
sitated a "straight front petticoat,"
and the new skirts of fine quality are
cut to fit the figure produced by it.
Embrodiery is more often seen on
these dainty skirts than lace, and hem
stitching and tucks appear on many.
The white skirt will be worn the com
ing summer in preference to silk, ow
ing to the vogue that thin white goods
are certain to have in gowns.
Corset covers are the filmiest, most
artistic creations imaginable, to suit
the extreme delicacy of the coming
shirtwaist. They, too. are made to
conform to the straight front corset
mode!, being lonker in front.
Some lovely new nightdresses have
boleros of fine embroidery or lace.
Others have fichu and surplice ar
rangements, and still others are made
like babies' long dresses, with front
breadth ornamented by rows of in
Silk skirts, like the white, are being
fitted to the new corset, and are so
perfectly adjusted to the dress skirt
that the sheath effect is increased.
Many of them would serve admirably
as drop skirts under the transparent
fabrics that are to be so popular. It
will be imperative in the spring, that
the petticoat shall fit as correctly, as
the dress skirt, otherwise the latter
will be spoiled in effect. The sheath
like fashion is firmly established, and
the princess skirt, which is one of
the spring novelties, will accentuate
the clinging character of the gown, so
that the slightest fulness in the petti
coat, elsewhere than a trifle at the
back, would mar the smoothaess be
Most ornate effects are seen in the
chemises worn by many fashionable
women. They are really a combina
tion of corset cover and underwear in
a women's wardrobe. The present
mode has no waste of material, and
falls almost without a fold from bust
to knee. The upper part is trimmed
datintily, and the lower is ruffled mid
