Clever Plot Was Handily
An American Merchant's Wife
Gets a Snug English
Thrilling* Story of the Won
ders Wrought by a Hindoo
New York Mercury.
Twenty years since George Lofth use
was a prominent decorator of famed
London town. He was a native of
Cheshire, on the borders of Wales, and
owned real estate adjoining Hon. W.
E. Gladstone's seat at Hawarden. He
was a fresh, active man or fifty-six and
a widower without children. His de
ceased wife and himself had married a
brother and a* sister, and their nearest
relatives were two young men to whom
they were in a double sense uncle and
aunt— by kinship and by marriage. Mr.
Lofthouse was well-to-do and his
nephews looked to his death with a
good deal of confident expectancy.
They were not very moral, industrious
or affectionate young men. Both had been
well educated at the expense of their
Uncle Lofthouse, for their own parents
had both died when they were young.
Some time along in the winter of 1804- (55
business in connection with his profes
sion took Mr. Lofthouse for several
days to the country seat of one of En
gland's most wealthy dukes. The house
keeper, Mrs. Ellerton, was
A HANDSOME AND STYLISH WOMAN
of thirty -six, and soon after seeing her
the idea seems to have occurred that her
sunny presence in his lonely home would
greatly contribute to its cheerfulness
and comfort. Like the practical man he
was, he lost no time in- sounding the
buxom lady and offering her his hand,
heart and fortune. She hesitated a good
deal, said there were obstacles, was
deeply moved und tearful, yet declined.
He pressed his suit and urged her to
disclose the cause of her non-accept
ance. She then told him that on attain
ing womanhood she had placed her
whole heart's affections on - a man who
had betrayed her. He had now passed
to the eternal bar of justice, but the
consequence of his perfidy remained in
the person of a girl, aged fifteen, then
attending a boarding school. He im me
diately expressed the opinion that she
had been guilty of no crime, that some
of the best of women had been so de
ceived and that he would only be too
happy to become a father to her daugh
ter. He went further than this. He
said he would at once make a will leav
ing all his estate, real and personal—
except two trifling legacies to his
nephews— to his wife for her lifetime,
and to Miss Fanny Ellerton afterward
absolutely. The marriage took place
in the spring of 1865, and the married
pair and Miss Ellerton took a trip into
Wales, visiting Hawarden and remain
ing for several days at the Blossoms
hotel in Chester. While here a certain
lawyer. Connor, drew Mr. Lofthouse's
will", and it was signed and attested by
John Stott and John Yeoman, both
tradesmen of Chester and old acquaint
ances of the testator. The will left all
REAL AND PERSONAL ESTATE
In the manner above indicated, with the
exception of £100 each, to be paid free
of all legacy duly, to Richard Hall and
Thomas Hall, the nephews already
mentioned. The wife was not willing
that the young men should be so in
adequately provided for, but to this ob
jection he made the response that they
had each received between £2,000 and
£8,000, and had dissipated it in riotous
living, and thus embittered his days..
Miss Fanny Ellerton went back to school
at Paris and received a line education.
Mrs. Lofthouse was very happy with her
husband, but she was unhappily cut
down by pneumonia in the noontide of
her prosperity. She died in London in
1874, and her husband, a second, time a
widower, was inconsolable. At the
time of her mother's death Fanny Eller
ton held a position as secretary in an
establishment having branches in Lon
don and Berlin, with headquarters at
Paris. She was a fine linguist with con
siderable literary aptitude, and the firm
valued her services highly, paying her
a large salary. Consequently, when
her stepfather wanted her to come at
her mother's death and place herself at
the head of his house she asked to be
excused— at least for a few years. In
1376 she attended the centennial expo
sition at Philadelphia for her firm and
met her fate. A well-to-do dry goods
operator of New York made her ac
quaintance, and, after a short court
ship, offered to make her his wife. She
accepted the offer conditionally, and
left America for Europe, with a prom
ise to communicate her ultimate de
cision by letter. After consulting her
stepfather, she decided to accept the
New York merchant, who crossed to
England and the wedding took place
in London in January, 1877, Mr. Loft
house, "giving away" the bride. The
young married couple were both told by
Mr. Lofthouse that Fanny was his heir,
and at his suggestion she made a copy
of the will and brought it with her to
New York, where it was seen by the
present writer on Friday last iv a law
yer's office on Warren street. About
MR. LOFTHOUSE RESIGNED BUSINESS
and retired to one of his houses in
Wales to live. Ile engaged as house
keeper a middle-aged widow of the
name 'of Park. Occasionally he was
visited by his nephews, Richard and
Thomas Hall, but ttie old gentlemen
was never in the habit of discussing the
disposition that would be made of his
property at death. Up ;to the end they
were probably both ignorant of the fact
that his will cut them off with £500 each.
In the spring of 18S0 the old gentlemen
had a stroke of paralysis that rendered
his entire left side and right eye "and
ear.useless. Mrs. was duly noti
fied by letter of this affliction, and she
wrote back letter after letter of affec
tionate condolence. Mrs. Anne Park
held the pen for the old gentle
man, and as he in a measure
dictated the letters to Mrs. Fan
nie , the shrewd woman speedily
discovered that Richard and Tom were
left out in the cold so far as the old
man's will was concerned. Now it ap
pears that Mrs. Park was a brunette,
and enjoyed the notoriety of being fond
of masculine society. Tom Hall, scape
goat as he was, was an especially favor
ite of hers. During the period of par
tial imbecility consequent on the stroke
of paralysis, Mr. Lofthouse was three or
four times visited by Lawyer Connor by
request. On every visit the will was
produced from the drawer and read
carefully over to Mr. Fofthouse by the
lawyer. He never expressed any desire
to alter it in any way, but seemed solic
itous to be assured that it would ''stand
the law." Thirteen months
AFTER THE FIRST STROKE ;
Of paralysis, in 18S1, the old gentleman
had another that proved fatal. So ' far
as is known, the housekeeper and the
doctor, who was hastily called in, were
the only people in the house up to and
thirty-six hours after he died. When
Lawyer Connor reached the hous. the
second day after the end the * deceased
lay in his coffin, and Dick.and Tom Hall
had not yet put in an appearance. : But
next day at the funeral they were both
present. After the obsequies, the law
yer and the two nephews went back to
"the house and search was made for the
will, which, it may be stated, the law
yer had failed to find it in its customary
resting place iv the secret drawer of an
THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: SATURDAY MORNING, MAY 24, 189 a
old-fashioned bureau. - The two Halls
and Mr. Connor ransacked every hole
aud corner of the house ,in search of
Hie missing instrument without avail.
Mrs. Park knew nothing whatever
about it— wasn't sure that she'd ever,
seen it, but knew that deceased had a
will of some kind, without the slightest
idea of its dispositions. There was only
one inference. The old juan toward the
end had probably relented so far as his
own sister's two boys were concerned,
and, not having certainty that there was
time to have another instrument drafted
and signed, had destroyed the will, thus
dying intestate. Tom and Dick Hall
were thus his natural heirs. Mrs. Fannie
received a Cheshire newspaper con
taining the death notice of her step
father, and at once instructed her lawyer
to communicate with Lawyer Connor, of
Chester, in regard to the estate of the
SHE RECEIVED A FORMAT. ANSWER
to the effect that as no will was found
at the demise of the former testator.it
was presumable in law that he had de
stroyed it. His two nephews, he said,
were the natural heirs, and as such:
would, no doubt, be recognized by law.
The lady was incredulous and dissatis
fied. Somehow she had an abiding con
viction that the old gentleman would
not destroy the will and that in some
way or other there had been foul play.
Yet on being fully informed of the
circumstances attending the deathbed
there did not seem
STRONG GROUNDS FOR SUSPICION.
A year after Mr. Lofthouse's decease
the two nephews were recognized as
heirs, and the property was divided
equally between them. The household
furniture was sold, the dwelling house
let, and Mrs. Park discharged. She
hired a small house in Chester, and,; ac
cording to Lawyer Connor, was fre
quently visited by Tom Hall. Mrs.
Fannie visited England and saw
both nephews. There was nothing said,
about the loss or destruction of the will.
She spent some time in Paris, and re
vived some of her former associations
and heard a good deal of the theosoph
ical society that had recently been es
tablished there as well as in London.
There she met the Hindoo whom Amer
ica had assisted at the cremation of the
Baron de Palm and at the subsequent
ceremony of casting the illustrious the
osophist's ashes into the ocean.
She returned to New York in the
early autumn of the same year, and was
surprised to meet the same Hindoo in
New York, where he had come on a
mission in connection with the occult
ists of the East. The Hindoo inquired
why she desired to see him. and she
told the story of the will, 'as has already
been told to the reader. The oriental
expert told her, in substance, that he
would make a careful examination, and
discover for her what disposition had
been made of the will, and*- if it was
still in existence he would procure it for
her. Before he left he asked her where
she should like to have the will placed,
in case he should find it. She named
her writing case. He looked at the case
from where he was standing, but
NEVER APPROACHED OR TOUCHED IT.
As he took his leave he told her- to
look inside at bedtime. At bedtime she
looked inside, and there was a damp,
soiled, yellow document. -the wili, in
short, just as she had seen it when she
made a copy with the signatures of the
witnesses and testator intact. The doc
ument was sent over to Lawyer Connor,
of Chester, by mail, and it was received
and acknowledged by him as the actual
will he had drawn.
NOW COMES THE MARVELOUS—
the incredible. Lawyer Connor sent
for Mrs. Park, the housekeeper, to come
round to his office and showed her the
will and she became semi-hysterical and
said: "Lord forgive me! The old man
has come back and told you that his
will was hidden in his coffin!" The
woman admitted that she had taken the
will and sewn it in the pi Mow beneath
the head of the corpse, in order that
Dick, but especially Tom Hall, should
not be disinherited. Proceedings are
said to be in operation in the proper
English courts for a rectification of the
old man's estate, although some consid
erable portion of it is already dissi
pated. "The occult
TRANSMISSION OF OBJECTS,"
Says an Indian gentleman, at present in
New York, "to a distance is not magic
in the ordinary sense of the word; but
the forces employed cannot be explained
other than to the initiated. The cur
rents made use of do not convey bodies
transmitted in a solid mass just as they
exist for the senses. The body, or
parchment, as in this case, to be trans
mitted is supposed to x be disintegrated—
conveyed on the currents in infinitely
minute particles, and then reintegrated
at its destination. The intervention
of any amount of matter makes no dif
ference whatever. The resting place
of the will being discovered by the ast
tral body and eye of the adept, the dis
integration process came into play, and
the minute particles would be conveyed
on the current already established. By
occupation time and distance are both
practically annihilated. Yet the world
will not believe because it is not edu
cated up to the high moral and unself
ish standard required."
From the San Francisco Call.
The New York Sun. which has always
devoted space to social and domestic
topics, proposes a crusade against what
it terms the shrill and inharmonious
voices of American women. This de
fect in many of our countrywomen has
been frequently noticed by foreigners,
who say that they can pick out an Am
erican girl in a Paris salon by the
screechiness of her voice. Things are
not as bad as that. But there is no
doubt that many American girls do talk
shrilly, indistinctly, from the head and
not from the chest, and with false mod
ulation and incorrect emphasis, while
an English or a French girl generally
charms a hearer by her sweet, melo
It is all a matter of education. It has
chanced that it has rarely occurred to
the conductors of our female academies
to lay stress on the cultivation of the
voice. If they had, their pupils would
not have been subject to criticism
on that head. Female voices in
California are the same originally
as female voices in London,; and are
capable of the same training. But
while in the British metropolis, the
schoolmistress devotes hours to teach
ing her puifiis to modulate their organ,
to speak in low, gentle tones, from the
chest and not from the head, our teach
ers have considered such matters as'
scarcely worth attention, and have con
centrated their efforts on making their,
scholars proficient in algebra and the
use of the piano. Yet now, as in the
days of King Lear, a soft, gentle . and
low voice was ever an excellent thing
in woman— like sweet music to the ear.
Correct pronunciation is almost as
important as a sweet voice, and that
also is a branch of culture which is not
as much studied as it should be. We
have in our language no absolute stand
ard of pronunciation such as the French
have in the Dictionnire de I'Academie—
but Webster is generally, though not al
ways, a safe guide. The best rule of
all is to pronounce as other people do.
To deviate from general custom is
proof of want of usage, or
of priggishness. When a young
lady observes that she went
to the "theayter," we infer that
her social exnerience has been limited;
but when she tells us that she expects
to go to "Paree," we set her down as an
interesting variety of the genus snob.
An eminent judge was so great a stick
ler for etymology that he always pro
nounced "interference'- with the accent
on the second syllable, because the c in
the root fero is short. His dissent from
common practice added little to his repu
tation as a scholar, though it suggested
the notion that he wished every one to
realize that he was a latinist. The best
rule for people who have not learned
the true, pronunciation of foreign or
proper names is to avoid them in con
versation. It is no crime in a man;; not
to be familiar with the name of Socra
tes, but he can hardly avoid 'provoking
laughter if he tells us y that he and his
wife spent a pleasant evening in listen
ing to a little comedy called "The Wife
of Zograates." :

Charles Burnstein had an experience
with a rifle in Berlin & Hall's saloon, on

that he will not forget for some time.
That no one was killed was due more to
good luck rather than good manage

workings of a magazine rifle, and
threw it to his shoulder with the muz

"Be careful exclaimed a bystander;
"that thing might go off." 7777.-

VOLCANOES OF THE PACIFIC 7
Underground Forces Which Are
Not Down on the Maps.
New York Evening Sun.
The news from San Francisco of a se
vere shock of earthquake along the
Californian coast Thursday morning
proves that the subterranean forces, the
evidences of whose tremendous power!
in former geological ages is everywhere
to be found throughout the Pacific*,
slope, are not yet entirely extinct. They
are merely dormant. "•-'
Examination of a geological map of
the Rocky mountain and Sierra Nevada
region shows the entire 'country* to be
dotted and splashed with streaks of red,,
denoting the rocky remains of former.!
volcanic vents. -*-' No active volcanoes
are known to exist within the bound-,
aries of the United States at present, "
but a number of investigators believe
that they have discovered signs that
there have been genuine volcanic erup
tion at several points in that region
since man first took up his abode ou the
Pacific slope. 7 •
In fact, in one place In Plumas
county, Cal., some sixteen years ago,
discoveries of pumice stone and lava
were made near an extinct volcanic
cone, so situated in connection with the
trees then existing in the neighborhood
as to give evidence that an eruption
had taken place within less than fifty
years. Traditions of the trappers also
seemed to bear out this interesting sup
In Oregon and Washington there are
numerous giant volcanic mountains,
among them Mount Shasta, Mount
Hood and Mount St. Helen's. These
have never been in eruption with
in recent times. But both north
and south of the United States there
are very active centers of volcanic dis
turbance with which the California and
Oregon volcanoes, though they are sup
posed to be extinct, are connected al
most uninterruptedly. Alaska has num
ber of volcanoes, the greatest of which
is Mount St. Elias. The Aleutian isl
ands are also entirely volcanic, and
there have been a number of eruptions
in their area during the past century.
The islands : join the volcanoes of
America with those of the old world
in Kamtchatka. Japan, the Phillipines,
the Indian archipelago and Australasia.
South of the United States, too, lie
the great volcanic belts of Mexico,
Central America. and the South Ameri
can Pacific slope. R_B
There have been a number .of in
stances where a volcanic region has re
mained dormant and the subterranean
forces had become extinct, apparently,
for immense periods of time, and then,
with scarcely a warning beyond a rum
bling earthquake or two, the crater has
suddenly broken forth into activity,
overwhelming the country for great
distances around with ruin and death.
Thus it was with Mount Vesuvius, which
was apparently dead for ages previous
to the great eruption -which destroyed
Pompeii and Herculaneum. Within the
past week or two reports have been re
ceived that the great sacred mountain
of Japan, Fusivama, which has "ex
hibited no signs* of activity for over a
century, has again started in on air
eruption, causing great consternation
throughout all Japan. ' • .. f * -■
■ With these examines in mind it can*;
not be said definitely that the volcanoes'?
of the United States Pacific slope arei
extinct. The subterranean forces are
still alive, though they may sleep long.;
That they exist is proved by Thursday's
earthquake shock and the other seismic,
disturbances so often reported from the I
Pacific coast. When they will break
forth terribly again, or whether they
will ever do so, is a question which uo-j
body can answer.
"The Gypsy Moth. j

It is said it is going to take 'ten years
and no end of money to extirpate the

moths will out-fly the state commission-,;

HUTCHINSON BUYS HEAVILY.
A Marked Decline in Interest on the
1 :- New York Stock Ex
• Chicago, May 23.— The opening price for
July wheat was the lowest of the day; it was
95% c, and sales were made around 95% c;
not many, however. The subsequent course
of the market was strongly, and at times ex
citedly, upward, stopping only when about
2c had been added to the starting price. As
on the day before, the opening moments
marked the only soft spot of the day, heavy
.buying orders appearing upon moderate re
daction, until the price touched 97% c The
closing price was 97 %c, or %c higher than
yesterday. The trading of the day was sig
nificant at times. The St. Louis bull crowd
sent another batch of bad crop dispatches,
one being that McPherson couuty, Kansas,
will have about 30 per cent of a . crop. The
dispatches were followed by buying
orders. Cudahy again cut a figure .in
the "market and bought both July
and September, but was credited with selling
out very largely on the first bulge .to 97% c,
and the enormous line of wheat taken
by Hutchinson. Certainly the latter bought
heavily, and also sold around the top. Mc-
Cormick & Co. sold on the same break to
96% c before noon. Foreign agents here had
buying orders to stop losses on short wheat.
Northwestern orders were to buy, partly to
cover. The Southwest bought on the poor
crop outlook. The country is back of the
wheat, and nothing but a panic, which ho
one is able to start, will shake the outsiders
out this time. Cables were bearish, and there
were no export clearances to speak of.
'but this made no difference. The sentiment
to-day makes §1 for July look possible before
the close Saturday, il news does not change.
The market lost most of its activity during
the last half-hour, but there was no material
yielding in prices. On the curb, however. .
there was an easier feeling. July selling down '
fromo7%c to 967.C The" corn market was :
steady early, and even made a fair bulge
with the strength in other cereals the first
hour. Later the market became heavy, de
clined %c from best prices. closed a frac
tion under lust night. Receipts were 046
cars, and the estimate for Saturday, 834 cars,
was the big bear influence in the market
Oats were rather active, and advanced early
•in the day, but weakened subsequently. The
prevision pit could scarcely muster in a cor
poral's guard all day, to wage the battle in
the hog products. : Lard and ribs closed a.
trifle higher, and pork about 10c lower.

market to-day showed a marked fall

responding decline in the iuterest
taken in the speculation, very few
shares to-day fluctuating over a range of
more than a fraction, while the movements
in the geueral list were devoid of feature or
interest/There was no excitement what
ever, such as has marked the dealings almost
every day for the past month, and only in
Sugar Refineries— which, with Citizens'!. as.of
Brooklyn, was the only stock showing any.
wide fluctuation— was there an approach to
any such thing. The manipulation on the
surface seems to be weakening, and ihe real
izations again caused a sharp downward
movement in the last hour, which left it ma
terially lower than last evening. In the regu
lar list the grangers were still the most prom
inent features, and soon after the op2iiing to
day they became strong and advanced upon
the renorts that there was to be an increase
of rates. By noon, however, it became
known that there was nothing in the ru
mors, and the grangers sold down again.
St. Paul, Rock Island and Lake Erie & West
ern common were strong features day,
and the first named moved up sharply
toward noon, but failed to maintain its ad
vantage during the latter portion of the day.
The belief in an Atchison-Gould quarrel is
not so prevalent as a few days ago, and to
day the Southwestern stocks were stronger
on' rumors of a settlement of- the differences
between the two interests. Atchison, how
ever, was, as a rule, weak, and
with Richmond & West Point sagged
away slowly, but steadily, though the latter
received good support around 20 until late in
the afternoon. In the afternoon the list
possessed less animation and showed smaller
fluctuations than at any time within the past
mouth, and at times became positively dull.
The usual Friday realizations, with some
selling by London, caused the market to give
way in the last hour, though Sugar was ex
tremely weak at the . time, and the close was
quiet ana generally weak, at insignificant
changes for the day. The final changes are
irregular, but the declines are in a large
majority, though in no case among the
active stocks lor more than fractional
amounts. On the other hand, Colorado Coal
is up 1 per cent. Railroad bonds, like stocks,
were very quiet to-day, and the same indif
ferent tone marked the dealings, the changes
in quotations, except in an extremely limited
number of issues, being confined to insignif
icant fractions. The sales reached only
$1,291,000, while the Atlantic & Pacific in
comes, with sales of $107,000, were the only
active specialty. The important changes are
very few in number, and Minneapolis & St.
Louis lowa extension 7s lost sat 98 ; Peoria
& Pekin Union 2d s 3% to 70. Government
bonds have been dull and steady. State
bonds have been entirely neglected.

The early sales of July wheat were at about
0334@93%c. which was an advance on last
night of *4c! The strength in prices at other
places affected by the winter wheat damage
was the ruling cause of an upward move
ment here. After the first quarter hour the
advance was rapid to 977& C July, with a big
demand from both shorts and long investors.
Trading was mostly very active, with but a
few short seasons of dullness. The orders
seemed mostly to buy, that came from out
side. Chicago was very bullish and pushed
prices up about 2c. There was a response
here, but riot to the full extent of the rise
there. It was told that some local holders
sold some for shipment. The news of win
ter wheat situation was in many cases of a
sensational character, and it was told the
wheat condition in Kentucky had gone
down 30 points. The situation in the North
west was bearish on dull flour and on
improved crop prospects and rose
only in sympathy with others. Posted re
ceipts of 'wheat for the day were 130 cars,
with 31 shipped out. The situation yester-.
day was the same during the past few days.
Elevator companies were the only large buy
ers of No. 1 northern, and they took all they
could get at a cent under what July was
worth at the time of purchase. Millers were
almost out of the field as buyers, only one
picking up any wheat, and his wants were
soon supplied. There was a little buying for
outside account. Mixers were picking up
some low grades, but the demand was not
brisk. No. 1 hard appeared to be selling a
trifle better. Prices were a shade stronger at
the opening, and were advanced later as the
strength in futures became more pronounced.
The price of No. 1 northern was based al
most entirely on July, following that future
closely at a cent under. Early sales were
consequently the lower ones.

IT WAS CORN'S.
A Woman Who Could Sharpen a
New York Sun.
There were scores of passengers
waiting in the Pennsylvania depot. Jer
sey City, and a prominent figure among
them was a real old-fashioned woman,
wearing a quaint old bonnet, and hav
ing the traditional number of parcels
and bandboxes with her. She had eat
en a fried cake and drunk from a bot
tle of cold tea, and, after brushing the
crumbs away, she took from her pocket
a whetstone and a pocket knife, and be
gan' putting an edge on the latter.
There was a general stir of interest
around her, and a man who sat near by
"Well, you are the first woman I evei
saw who could sharpen a knife,"
"Lands save you, but 1 know fifty of
'em she replied. "Any women folks
up our way who can't sharpen axes and
knives are counted no good. This 'ere
nit** belongs to the old man, ami hain't
very good stuff."
"What's your object in sharpening
the knife?" he asked, as she worked
away with much vigor. <
"Corns. (Jot two on the bottom of ids
left foot. Orter pared em down afore I
left home, but didn't have time, Got
fifty-five minutes to wait here, and I'll
put it on the corns. How's that for an
edge?" ■ i
"Sharp as a razor," he replied, as he
received the knife, felt of its edge and
passed it back.
"Yes, I guess it wil do. You'd better
move now. Hate to bother you. but
them corns is dreadful."
He moved away, followed by two or
three others, and the old lady slipped
off her shoe and stocking, turned her
back to the crowd and began operations.
She was through in about twenty mm*
utes, and, after replacing her shoe, she
bundled her packages together and
"There! I feel $100 better, and I'll
have half an hour more after 1 git home
to help change them hens into the new
A GIFT TO COLUMBUS.
Wonderful Ivory Jewel Casket
Which Will Be Exhibited at the
A gentleman of New York has pur*
chased for $1,125 a wonderful ivory,
jewel casket, which be will exhibit at
the world's fair. It was given to Co
lumbus by their majesties Elizabeth,
queen of Castile, and Ferdinand, king
ot Arragon, on his return from his
third expedition loaded with chains by
his enemies. The casket measured in
length about nine inches, and breadth
six inches, and in height between seven
and eight inches. There are strong
traces of gilding and color, which have
almost entirely worn off. A female
figure on lop is armed with a bow and
javelin. The panels on the four sides
represent the "Battle of the Amazons,''
Medallion portraits figure on the lid. ■
Wrists and Ankles.
Do you know, Amy, I have quite come
to the conclusion that a woman's toilet
is never quite successful unless it show£
two or three inches of slender wrist} 1
whether gloved or very tightly sleeved]
1 noticed one or two women in the park
last week who looked better dressed
than the rest, and after puzzling over
the matter some little time I settled, in
my own mind, that it was because the
prettily shaped wrists were not
wrapped up in fur or hidden in
muffs. I said as much to Charlie, and
he went further than I did. "Yes," he
said, -'and ankles, too. Just think what
a horse would look like if his legs werQ
rolled up, and swathed, and hidden^
What a thoroughly clumsy animal he
would seem to be." I dropped the sub-]
ject, dear, but continued it in my.'
thoughts. For instance, how much.;
nicer a man looks in riding breeches
that are tight in the legs than he does',
in the ordinary trousers. And ■-".thai
former must be warmer, too. We all!
appear to conceal with care the fine*,, 1
lines of wrist and ankle, in fashioning
which nature seems to have taken par
ticular pains. ;;';■'•;■ '
Another thing in which most women
lamentably fail is the arrangement of
the hair. They are guided by the fash
ionable coiffure, and do their best to
make all their heads exactly alike, re-'
gardless of the distinctive style and
characteristic of each face. Every girl
ought to be at some pains to discover*,
what suits her best, and then remain
faithful to it, with an occasional modifi
cation to conform to the phases of
fashionable headgear. Do you not
agree with me? I fancy that many
people are getting tired of having the
hair all combed up to the top of the
head. It is quite certain that when tho
hair is drawn in straight upward lines,
the effect is by no means becoming o£
pretty. As a rule, I think the hair that
grows about the temples and above the
ears look best when drawn straight .
back and fastened beneath the puff,
now so much worn. 1 have seen half at
dozen decided chignons of late, and sinK
cerely hope that they do not indicate a,
revival of that ugly fashion. I saw two.
at Sandown worn by fashionably
dressed women. H__H
The Problem Solved. ,* •
"I must break the engagement, and
yet I don't want people to say 1 jilted^
"1 have it. Invite him to tea."
"Makt-tfome of your tea biscuits."
"And he'll break it himself."
