Gr. Frances Urges Mississippi Rivet

Jeffersox City, March 81. Go,.
Francis to-day transmitted the follow

general assembly relative to the im,
prorement of the Mississippi river:
Stats op Missotmi. 1
Jsmssog Crrr. March 21, 1192. )
n Thirty-SUlk Central Afmhl):
Okxtlkkkv It is dlfflcult to overestimate
the importance to Missouri of the improvement
of tbe Mississippi river and tbe securing of a
good stage of wster from the mouth of the
Missouri to the jetties. It would cheapen tbe
transportation of our surplus production to
tbe consuming markets of Europe, and
every decline in freight rates works a
corresponding advance in the value of the
products exported. Tbe people of the Missis
sippi valley have for years been endeavoring
to Impress upon tbe federal congress tbe claims
for special sttention possessed ry tbe Missis
sippi river. The large increase tn population
during tbe last decade in the states washed by
the Mississippi river and the large proportion
which these states contribute to tbe wealth of
tbe county, justify tbe federal congress in sep
arating the improvement of the Mississippi
river from the general river and harbor bill,
and in giving to the great "inland sea" a con
tinued annual appropriation of sufficient mag
nitude to insure a depth of eighth feet of water
from tbe Missouri river to tbe gulf at all sea
sons of tbe year.
The commercial and manufacturing associa
tions of bt. Louis, realizing that low-water
rates to the ocean regulate the freigbt charges
on all-rail shipments between the Mississippi
river snd tbe Atlantic seaboard, have united
in a movement to impress upon congress tbe
necessity of providing liberally for tbe im
provement of the Mississippi river. A bill for
that purpose has been introduced in the sen
ate, and made tbe special order for Tuesday,
March 22. A memorial to the Fifty-eecond
congress, prepared under tho direction of the
commercial organizations snd tbe municiltal
government of St. Louis, snd favoring a sepa
rats annual and continued appropriation for
the improvement of tbe navigation of the Mis
sissippi river, is presented herewith. I recom
mend that yon take such action as will
strengthen onr senators and representatives in
tbe congress in rapport of this worthy move
ment. Davio R. Francis, Governor.
After the messnge was read lioth the
senate and house passed the following
Whekeas, A in-mortal of tbe merchants ex

of different sections of our country an opportu

less cost; and,
Wheseas. The measures therein advocated
are in the highest degree national in character,
and of special importance, not alone to the peo
ple of Missouri, but to the people of every state
in the Mississippi valley: therefore bo it

HAVE NO PATRON SAINT.
Unsatisfactory Knd of a IVevont Irish Law
yer's Attempt to Obtain One.
'"Did you know," asked the lawyer,
"that the lepal profession is the only
profession that lias no patron saint at
least none that it will own?"
"What's the reason for that?" I
"I don't know," answered the law

ent was probably arguinp with the
judpe in another court.
"What did you mean by 'At least none
that it will own?" " I asked.
"Many years aso," was the reply,
"an Irish lawyer who was a fervent
Catholic sought to provide his profes
sion with a patron saint. So genuine
was his desire for one that he traveled
to Rome to consult the pope. The pope
(rracionsly received him.
" 'Pray, yeur holiness,' said the Irish
man, 'prant the lawyers a patron saint.
"Accordinp; to the story, which is a
very venerable one. the pope looked
over the list and found that there were
no saints that had not been given to the
other professions, at which the Irish
lawyer was much cast down. Observ
ing his depression, the pope bade him
cheer up. and then directed him to go
to a church near by, to blindfold him
self and to pass around the interior,
saying Ave Marias all the time.
" 'And,' said the pope, the first saint

"Much gratified, the devont lawyer
went away to follow the instructions.
He passed around the church praying.
When he stopped he put out his hand.
He was in front of the altar of St.

he cried, and pulled off the bandage.
Alas, he wasn't touching St. Michael at
all! His hand was resting on the devil
under St SI ichael's feet." N. Y. Herald.
A Dainty tvhlm.
The latest and daintiest of whims is
a supplement to fancy stationary in the
form of a little pad of the finest and
softest of Japanese tissue-paper, exact
ly the size of a half sheet of note pa
per. The paper is white, and has
stamped in one corner a single flower
in the natural color, sometimes shaded
or outlined in gold. Occasionally the
sentiment of the flower is placed nnder
it in the tiniest of gold lettering, or if
the young lady be clever she paints the
flower and writes a suitable sentiment
across the sheet in gold ink. After
writing a letter she tears off one of the
tissue sheets and rolls it into the least
possible compass, and drops upon it
enough perfume to dampen it thorough
ly, using, of course, the perfume of the
flower stamped on tiie paper. After
unrolling it and allowing the alcohol to
evaporate sufficiently to avoid any soil,
she folds her letter and slips the
scented sheet between the fold. When
some admiring friend receives the let
ter there is likely to flutter out, as he
opens it, something very much re
sembling a butterfly, and breathing
charming suggestions in its dainty per
fume. N. Y. Sun.

To Brighten Leather Furniture:
Furniture dealers say that real leather
should not fade as long as it holds to
gether. However, it does fade; so try
this method of brightening it: Wash
the leather with a sponge that has
been wrung out of hot soap-suds; then
rub as dry as possible. Now place the
furniture in the sun and wind, that it
may get thoroughly dry as quickly as
possible. Next, rub hard with a cloth
that has been wet with kerosene. Let
the furniture stand in the air until the
odor of the oil has passed off. Ladies'
TAFFETAS AND MOIRES.
Fabrics That Are Largely Imported for
Spring and Summer.
Taffeta silks are largely imported for
spring and summer dresses. They come
in light blue or pink grounds, with
double black stripes quite far apart,
the space between dotted with black or
white figures or baskets of flowers,
White taffetas have satin stripes, an
inch apart, of pale green with yellow,
or pink with blue. Very young ladies
hare adopted moire antique for both
semi-dress or full dress. They begin
where their grandmothers left off. In
the evening they wear bell-shaped,
demi-trained skirts of white satin
striped moire entirely without trim
ming. The moire corsage, square and
half-low in the neck, is covered with
white chiffon, and has a bodice or
corselet made of silver or pearl butter
flies. Stripes of silver and pearl passe
menterie hold down the full chiffon
above the corselet. The short sleeves
are a full puff of chiffon overthe moire,
fastened with a soft chiffon knot. A
Watteau bow of moire is held at the
back of the neck by a pearl and silver
butterfly. This charming gown was
worn by a debutante at the New Year's
ball. Other white moires have narrow
stripes of yellow edged with a filet of
black, or hair lines of mauve finished
with pale-blue stripes. Itroader pink
stripes are bordered with black on a
white ground, and there are pink and
yellow quarter-inch stripes separated
by black penciled lines.
Durable twilled silks of various kinds
are revived. The satin-finished surfaces
of many are of the smallest twills,
while plain surahs are woven in rather
wide diagonals. Very light surah silks
of gray, lilac, old -blue or pink have
petit pois dots of the same color. New
black surahs have bunches of bright
yellow buttercups, and brown surahs
are strewn with violets. Shot surfaces
are exceedingly pretty in the satin
surahs as gray shot with rose and
dotted with rose, or marked with square
out lines or small blocks in a very effec
tive way. Harper's Bazar.
White dimity strewn with colored
flowers, its sheerness strengthened by
lengthwise cords, lias become a favorite
fabric for wash dresses. It is being
made in most dainty dresses for mid
summer, with trimming of white laces
that wash well as the Genoa point,
Valenciennes in new designs, and some
novel laces that are mostly of plain
meshes with a narrow design of leaf or
flower along the scalloped edge. The
waist, without lining, is cnt like a
basque with one or two 6ide forms and
with darts all the seams having their
edges neatly turned nnder instead of
being left raw. The sleeves are mostly
in wide bishop shape, drooping on a
waist-band or cuff of lace. The waist
trimming of lace is put on to outline a
jacket front, leaving thedimity pointed
like a vest, and to edge the back in a
scant frill. There are also yoke-like
trimmings of lace, with jabots down
the entire front; while others have a
single fall of lace, like a bib. The skirt
in the slight bell shape already
described may be quite plain, or else
have a flounce of lace or ot dimity at
.he foot Harper's Bazar.
The Adjustable Slipper Toe.
The girl who dotes on pretty slipper
has found that the toe of her satin or
silk slipper wears out long before it
should, and that there is a remedy for
this in the adjustable slipper toe. They
are easily fastened on, and are made of
silver, gold, and bronze. The society
girl has the adjustable toe tnnde of
gold, upon which is her monogram
sparkling with her favorite stone. A
dark red satin slipper will have a gold
en toe. upon which is a monogram of
garnets. Chicago Tribune.
Ia the Plush Rag.
New opera-glass cases have a secret
compartment at the bottom of the vel
vet or plush, whose clasp ia hidden
from all save tbe owner. In this hid
den receptacle are stowed away a pow
der puff, a comb, a bottle of sal volatile
and two or three hairpins, and the
cover of tbe case is a mirror. A woman
of ordinary ingenuity could make
week's stay with this condensed little
toilet ease. N. Y. Herald.
