hue BEAD CHAINS.
A Fashion in Vogue in London Now Ex
tent pecte:l to Attack New York.
in The bead chain has not yet reached
in New York the same vogue that it
him has enjoyed for the dast six months in
nto London, but the craze seems likely to
ory be seen here before next winter. Al
ern ready there are few girls who have not
chains to match particular costumes,
and the summer piazza leisure has
ice- given a decided impetus to the fad..
ion. As it is, the beads have been im
ported by the dealers in nearly every
:est conceivable shade. They come in
rid. warm tints of terra cotta, and they
but are bright yellows as well as the more
usual tints It must be a strange shade
la- that cannot be found in these beads.
ore The chai 1 should usually fall in
he front nearly to the knee, and the ends
ns are finished always with some elab
orate tassel cr other ornamentation.
The Japanese and other Oriental stores
.5,- have imported --ainted and fancy beads
ro- in varied colors and desigps, and the
iry strand is punctuated with these at
different points. They come now in
solid colors and also in dull colored
of carved woods that alternate effectively
with the colors of the beads that make
be up most of the chain. The chains are
he used rarely to support a lorgnon or
ib- locket and are generally intended only
he for ornament. They are rarely strong
enough to hold anything heavier than
the tassels at the end of the chain.
ch They are not likely,.tQ remain a
-k, fashion permanently, as they are sim
pl> pie enough to be made without difl
he culty, and the materials are cheap.
The only thing needed to make them
ie well is a certain neatness in stringing
n- the beads. A pretty combination seen t
the other day was of rather vivid blue
beads ornamented at five points in the
be string by bright yellow beads a little a
e larger than the others. These yellow e
beads were strung on each side of a
ry long oval black bead on which were
le painted flowers in a Dresden pattern.

a dark brown dress.

e e CC
n To Domestlcate the Zebra.
SR. J. Stordy, who is connected with m
the English government in East
Africa, has proposed a scheme by
e means of which he believes the zebra s
y can be domesticated and made of great p
Suse to mankind. He says: "The great
difficulty so far has been the domesti
cation of the adult animal. I would p
- propose that a kraal be formed within m
a district where firearms are non-ex- th
Sistent, as in the case of a preserve. The e
tkraal would have two extending arms m
leading from the open country into it,
and it would be large enough to hold
Sa herd of 50 adult animals. Several h
t mounted Cape !h~.v v ouX: first be em
t ployed whose duty would be to accus- ce
tom the zebras to the neighborhood of brce
the kraal and to the sight of horses
and mules. Through their following A
I the horses or else by driving them,
I they are finally secured in the kraal.
Here they would be allowed to breed.
As it has been found almost impossible
to rear a young zebra away from its
mother, the foals would be left in the
kraal until they were several months
old. Then they would be separaited
and gradually accustomed to the pres
ence of man and the other domesti
cated animals. thi
"In the course of a generation orm
two Mr. Stordy believes that a new, to
very hardy and entirely docile beast ho
of burden could be secured, which Fr
would have especial value in the die- de
tricts afflicted with tne tsetse fly, as ju
the zebra is quite immune to the lat- a
ter's bite. is

origin dates from the year 323 A. D.,
or thereabouts, when the Emperor
a onstantine called together the first
no unell of Bishops in Constantinople.
om t that time the Abyssinians had been
1'9cently converted to Christianity,
and, as time went on, sent, as did
other Christian Kingdoms and States,
a Bishop or representative of the
_x- church, at the invitation of the Em
ied peror, to the yearly Council of Bishops

ances of the church for the ensuing
in year were drawn up and agreed upon.

was ordered to be hereafter included
in the ordinances for each ensuing I
year by the representatives of the I
" Christian Church. It seems, however,
that at the seventh Council of
ey Bishops, the continuation of the dance
re of David was disallowed, and the
e order for its performance rescinded.
But it happened that the Bishop repro
in senting Abyssinia was unable to be
d present either at this or the next
council; the country, in all probability,
n. being in a state of war, and unable
es to consider spiritual matters. The
Abyssinian Church, therefore, con
he tinned In ignorance of the order re

in sequence, been continued and per
formed on the sacred Saturday before c
a "As we neared the courtyard of Ras
r Makennon's house we were greeted
with sounds of singing. Upon enter- (
ing we were surprised to find the place ,
crowded with people, and then real
ized that we had been asked to wit
ness a religious ceremony. Some of
.those presentrwere beautifully attired I
ni Indian robes, an4 wore'gold-crowns' t
covered with precious stones. Others g
dressed in white, with a deep red 1i
band running down the centre (dis- I
tinguishing them from Mohamme
n dans,) the headdress consisting of a t:
large White turban. All these people I
e were seated on the ground in the ver- I
anda, and in the centre we discov- t
a ered the Garasmatch (General of the o
Right) seated on a chair of state.
After greeting him I had time to look
about at the weird crowd facing us in
a semi-circle. At my left, under a
magnificently embroidered umbrella,
stood an aged man, and In his im
mediate following were small children, 7
holding some scriptural sign. The old k
man was the high priest. Beyond g
him, and completing the semi-circle, r
stobd other men, all dressed in white, t(
some holding wands and others rat- ,
ties, while still others were weighted
down with heavy drums. Thus they tl
sang the Psalms of David-to the ac
companiment of music and dancing. ,,
The. priests, as they continued the
movement, gradually warmed up to
the work, and ended in a wild, fan
tastical figure. This over, a repre
sentative was chosen from among the
priests, who delivered a long harangue
to the Garasmatch, chanting psalms m
and extolling the merits of the Em
peror, Ras Makennon, and the Garas- e
match himself, finishing by hoping g(
that the Garasmatch would not for- ly
get that they had fasted for two el
months, and that he would give them a
plenty of food and money.
The General of the Right thereupon
asked us to call upon him in half an
hour, and then proceeded to the re
ception hall, where the priests re- th
ceived money and an invitation to C
breakfast on the following morning. 1'
After this the priests broke up into be
small parties, and visited the various ra
European high officials in the town, Im
from whom they demanded money.

Value ofa Bee's Tongue. fu
In the new apiculture the length , of
the bees' tongues is looked upon as a er
matter of importance. The longer the w
tongue the greater is the insect's
honey-gathering capacity, and a new ed
French apparatus, the glossmeter, is a
designed to aid the apiarist who, by rel
judicious selection, seeks to develop
a long-tongued race. The apparatus d
is simply a glass vessel for syrup, with an
a lid containing numerous small per. ge
forations, and a floating scale to show
the hight of the liquid when the bees
just reach it through the holes, It is ea
estimated that the ordinary bee can ca
draw sweets from a depth of about a co
quarter of an inch, and that selection
can increase its range a twenty-fifth d
of an inch. 50]

Birmingham, Ala.-A conference of
leading Democrats from all over the
state was held here Saturday, in con
junction with a meeting of the state
democratic campaign commitee in
charge of the campaign for the ratifi

Short speeches by those present

considerable opposition among Demo

based on lack of knowledge of the
new organic law and consequently
upon opposition to a change. John

when he declared that the opponents
of ratification are enemies of good
government because they stand for
