finally put two t-rlsp greentmrka Into a little

An unwilling but interested listener to the
Interesting conversation, I began to won
der what it cost to dress a youug lady of
fashion. At tho rate of $'J00 a weok it would
be over $10,000 a year, and as my income was
only half that find my lady love a fieraoii of
fashion I (Mini'.-red. 1 asked a young mar
. riod man at the club how much his wife
spent a year on her clothes. I know I put
the question meekly, but ho howled at mo to
"go to thunder with my impertinence,"
and so 1 went or, rather, 1 went to visit
an aged female relative. iShe: told me
that clothes had gotten beyond her, and said
.all she know irus timt her granddaughter
could "dance n :JhI bull dress tD ribbons in
anight." Then 1 Kvamo frig!i:ene 1, and so
consulted a nice little dobutanto who volun
teered to post me on clothes.
"Of course there is no limit to the amount
you can spend on Hothes," she lie-Ran. "If
you want to go to Worth and Pingat, or, in
fact, to any of the fashionable. Pans dress
makers, you will be obliged to iy a pretty
reasonable price. 1 have a very nice ward
robe this year, and ic cist pupa just $S,000.
When we eanio home from Kuroe I brought
just two Paris dresses, he?ause, don't you
know, if you cnn't s:jy, 'Some of my things
are imported,' you arc really nobody. One
was a perfect l w ..f a bull dress, you know.
I wore it the ot'ii. r uilit, that palo yellow
tulle, all embroi'lenxl in silver, with the big
yellow sash and satin Uvlice. It looked very
simple, but it cost me and then papa
had lots of duty to pay on it. It was made
from a special design und the design de
stroyed, so that it could not be duplicated.
"Then 1 brought over a carriage dress. I
haven't worn it yet I'm waiting uutil tho
Other girls near tln-irs, then I shall come out
In mine. It was quite a cheap gowii; only
Coatl50. It is in four shades of fawn and
of silk and velvet, made iu oue of thoso long
directoire mliugotes that ure so much worn,
with a sash of crimson. It was made for the
Princess Somebody, I believe, but she would
not pay her hut bill, so they sold it to me for
half price. You need not say anything
bout that, though."
Hete she paused for a moment and I asked
her if her dresses were as costly ns those of
the Misses do Catteur up the avenue.
"I should bop,, so! Why, those girls era
ploy a to drossnnker, nnd do ail the plain
tewing themselves, and their father dresses
the whole live of them on $:s,000a yearl I
do not tniuk I am nt oil extravagant, but I
could not dress on $ti,)o a year."
Wo came Kick to the subject of ber
clothes anil whut they cost.
"Some sweet little dancing gowns, one for
each of the Delmonico balls, only cost me $100
each. 1 have a specially ni"e ona for the
Patriarchs to-morrow a white silk crepe

tucked with white satin ribbon, and a jar

"Then thei e is one for the New Year's ball,
of light red Brussels net, all caught up with
tiny black humiinug birds, ami ono for the
last assembly, of roso pink gauze, mudo a la
Grecque awfully sweet gown I have just
even of them. I need a fivsh one for each
ball, you know, and then I wear each one
tour or five times at small dances and the
opera and dinners. With my imported
dress, that makes only eight ball dresses
not at all extravagant, do you think f
After assuring hor thut I would not do such
a thing, we proceeduL
"Well, you see, I needed two new street
costumes, so I went down to Iiedl'ern, and
he tamed me out two beauties for 1150 each,
both with hats and jackets to match. One
is that dark green nnd black cloth gown that
fits like a glove. I wore it yesterday, you
remember big buttons down the front
and long, straight flaps to the polonaise.
Directoire, you know. Everything is; direc
toire and empire this year. I have a plain
cloth jacket with that, and a little velvet
toque, with a prince's feather in it This
blue cloth, touched up with the silver braid,
Is the other dress. I wear it with a long boa."
But wbm I asked about the coat to go with
it I was Informed that none was required,
because the gown was lined all through
with clmni'iM skin, and was as warm as
a sealskin without tho bulk of the lat
ter. 8o do not imagine when you see one
of your feminine friends walkiug about with
out a jacket, and the thermometer down to
sero, that she is silently freezing. She isn't.
If slie hasn't a chamois lining to hor dress she
has one of cotton batting; but this latter
only in case she is very thin, when it serves a
twofold purpose of giving her warmth and
rounding nut herungles.
"My tea gowns were marvelously cheap.
Tou know that greeu and pink brocade, all
bordered with bumming birds' wings, so

only paid t&i for tlint. A erfect bargain I
call it. Then 1 have that morning dress of
pink and white flannel mado Marguerite

They cost me $00 each. I hud them made at

hear one of the Van Vautry girls has seven,
but I cannot afford it this year, shoes and
stockings cost so much, you kuow."
It was quite shocking to bear that ball

could pay more for them if you wished.

A church dress is quite necessary. It is
the fashion to bo very plain at church, and

I HE DEAD COMES TO LIFE.
Ad Is Married to a Former Rejected
Lover Given Away, by Her Husband.
One of the streets of Florence is known as
Via del Morti, the street of the dead. Many
years ago a beautiful Italian princess was
sought in marriage by two nobles. Prince
Ooudi and Count Aldobrandi, whose palaces
stand at either end of the short and narrow
street. The prince was successful in his suit.
but in less than a year the beautiful young
woman died, and her body was placed in the
crypt ueneatn the cathedral, the coffin and
the iron door of the vault being left open, as
is still the custom in Tuscany, so that if the
person thought dead comes to life be may es
cape being buried alive. In the middle of
the night after the funeral Prince Goudi was
startled by a knock at the outer door. The
porter opened the door and a white figure
groped Its way in.
The porter fell in a swoon, and the prince
rushed to a chapel in the palace and fell
praying before the altar, hesetvbing protec
tion against his dead wife's ghost. For days
all Florenco rang with the story of how
Prince Ooudi was haunted by his wife's ghost,
and the excitement gradually died away.
When the porter swooned and the prince
fled to bis altar, the white figure slipped out
of the house and went to that of her old
suitor, Count Aldobrandi. There she knocked
feebly, but the porter was asleep, and ths
master of the house rarao to open the diwr.
The princess fell at his feet, and he lifted
her up and called upon the women of his
household to care for her. After a week had
passed, no one knowing the facts, the count
applied to the patriarch of the cathedral,
and asked: "Holy father, if a woman is de
clared dead and receives the sacred office of
the church, returns to life, is repulsed by ber
husband, is but received and takeu care of
by a friend of her living days, who may
The venerable priest said the question was
so weighty that the pope must answer it, and
he replied that the one who had rescued her
could ctoim her. It was soon announced that
the Couwt Aldobrandi would wed a noble lady
long a stronger in Fiereuze, and he requested
his friend Ooudi to give away the bride, her
parents not being present. At the appointed
day, before tho altar of a chapel in the
duomo, the marriage took place. The ques
tion was asked: "Who gives this woman to
be the wife of this man?" Prince Ooudi
stepped forward, but not until be had taken
ber hand did be know that he was bestowing
his own bride upon another. But bis knowl
edge canto too luto. For years Count Aldo
brandi and his wife lived happily together,
and at this late day a descendant of Prince
Ooudi tells the story as a historical fact

The Day for Dot-tors.
"Which do you suppose is the busiest day
In the week for a physician. I moan by that
the day on w hich ouo gets the most now
casesP asked .a disciple of JEsculnpius of a
visitor yesterday atteruoon while both were
sitting iu the doctor's cozy little office ou the
"I don't know," was the reply, "but I
thought the doctors' business was very
uncertain; in fact I never heard that people
are more apt to become sick on oue day iu the
week than on another."
"Well, then, listen to me, and I will give
you the benefit of the experience which I
have bad duriug the last thirty years. It
has been the result of my observation that
tne largest number of people take sick on a
Monday. Not because it is a particularly un
lucky day, nor because that day is an enemy
to human health and life, but for this reason:
Of course you know that ou Sunday the reg
ular routine kind of existence of every day
life receives a change. Tho man who usu
ally goes down town to bis office stays at
home on that day; the workingman and la
borer, who have been busily occupied during
the week either at the mill, gluss house or
other places, do not, as a rulo, work either.
Now the mere interruption of the muscular
movement would proliably uot have any bad
effect upon anybody were it uot for one
thing, the change of diet.
"The loving, thoughtful housewife, who
knows that Sunday is the only day on which
she can have all those that are dearest to ber
around the dinner table, always exerts her
culinary abilities moro than usual, and she
tries to make something out of the common
something nicer and better to put before
them to eat. The consequence is that she
makes her cookery richer, and she throws in
a few knickknacks here and there that taste
very well, but as a rule th-xe things play
havoc with a person's digestion, especially
when the stomaota is not used to them.
"Now, that is the whole secret It is a
well known fact that most diseases arise from
a disorder of the digestive organs, and heuce
you have the explanation why more people
do not get up on Monday morning as well
and as bright as on any other day." Pitts
Corsets of Leather.
Quite a column has tieen devoted in the
leading French papers to the news that a
fresh material bas been discovered for cor
sets. One would not expect English influ
ence to assert itself in so dulicate a depart
ment But leather corsets are to be traced
remotely to the influence of the insulars.
French ladies have taken up tenuis (iu a very
dainty way) and croquet. They even men
tion cricket as within feminine possibilities,
though probably they only mean the less ac
tive game that is played with hoops and mal
lets. However, the Parisian corsetier bas
seen bis opportunity. For such robust exer
cise the ordinary fabric is quite insufficient
A concession is to be made to Euglish de
mands. There is to be give and take. French
girls are to play tennis, and English girls are
to wear leather corsets. The change will
probably be greater for the French than for
the English, though neither innovation is
much more than a revival. In the days of
Henry V if Shakespeare is any authority
the Parisians played a kind of tennis, and
certainly in the days of Cromwell, if Eng
lish girls did not wear kid corsets, their
fatbors put ou leather yerkins. Pall Mall
A suitable agate, after being thoroughly
dried, is immersed in a mixture of honey
and water or in olive oil, and kept thus at
least three days, exposed to a moderate heat
It is then washed, dried and put in a vessel
containing enough sulphuric acid to cover it
The vessel is thereafter exposed to a gentle
heat for a varying number of hours, when
the porous layers are found to have become
mucn.darker in color. The reason of this is
that these layers, having become saturated
with oil, are acted upon by the sulphuric
acid, which decomposes the sugary or oily
constituent, and forms in its place a deposit
of carbon. It is in this way that banded
agate is converted into the onyx, with its
black and white layers, used in the produc
tion of cameos and intaglios.
Exposure to strong sunlight was long ago
found to give a reddish tint to gr .y colored
agates, and this suggested the burning of
such stones so as to convert them into cor
nelians. At Obersteiu, likely stones for this
purpose are first dried thoroughly, then sat
urated in sulphuric acid and afterward ex
posed in an earthenware crucible to red heat
They are allowed to cool slowly, and are
then seen to be of a light red color. Not
content with imitating the rarer natural va
rieties of agate, such as onyx and cornelian,
German manufacturers have taken to stain
ing agates blue, and all other sorts of colors
unknown to the natural stone. Aniline dyes,
as unnatural as they are fugitive, have also
lately been used for agate staining. Jewel

STILL A MYSTERY.
A TRAGEDY OF TWENTY-FIVE YEARS
AGO IS YET UNSOLVED.
A Beautiful Young Litdjr Myste'lously
Murdered In Atlanta. Co.. During the
War Found Deait on Her Bed, Arrayed
In Gay Attire.
During the Sber nan siege of Atlanta in
18R4 a tragedy occurred which bas ever since
been enveloied in mystery, and which at the
time almost caused tho besieged people to
forget the great a' -my which was pressing
into tho city. The population of the city
was reduced to less -ban 5,000 civilians, who
lived in Iwmb pro fs frequently and who,
being cut off from t io world, formed a com
munity of its own. This community for the
most pert was fornix! of women and chil
dren, thu men being absent in the army. The
officers nnd soldiers of the garrison, between
the general engagements, would enjoy social
reunion with the c tizens, and many dances
were given by tbo young ladies for the
amusement of thoir military admirers.
Before the circle i round the city was com
plete thero came i;ito Atlanta by the West
Point road a young lady giving her name as
Miss Jane Mooivh.-ad, from Mobile, Ala,
Her arrival was somewhat mysterious, as
well as her stay ii, tho city. She at ohce
sought ihvupaliou i:i tho hospitals, where she
came to be regarded as an angel of mercy.

Her beauty is d-scnled as having been
great, and she had ninny accomplishments
and was evidently i f gentle breeding. She
would never refer to her past life, but it
came to lie believed that ht-r love bad died
on one of the battledelds of Virginia, and
that she bad simply resolved to devote her
iife to the alleviatic u of the sufferings of the
soldiers in tho hospitals.
Later on and Hearing the end of the siege a
ball was uutiouuced to take place in oue of
the houses on Wa ton street Miss Moore
uead, who never wont to a place of amuse
ment, was urged b a captain whom she had
met in the hospital to go to the ball. The
ladiesof her acquaintance also joined iu and
urged her to take th is recreation. She finally
consented. When -,ho captain called for her
he found her in a full bridal costume, with
valuable and brillit.nt jewelry. It was the
first lime she had ever so uppeared. At the
ball she was one of the gayest, and seemed
so unlike tho sad hospital visitant that it at
tracted genenil re-nark. At 3 iu the morn
iug the ball ended and the guests scattered
for their homes.
When Miss Moor ehead failed to arise by 8
a. ra, it did not surprise the lady with whom
she boarded, but wueu 10 o'clock came with
no sign of her the door was opened. There
Miss Moorehead was found f uily dressed as
she lay across the bed, her face toward the
' STABBED TO THE HEART.
A call did not ar use heis, and a touch told
that she was dead. Tw. stabs had pierced
her heart and vera so closely made as
scarcely to make a crease in her dress. The
sensation which followed was intense. Her
fidelity to the wout ded soldiers made every
one ot them feel th it she w as a sister. The
fears of the ladies were aroused at the mys
Whocruld have been her murderer, and
what was his motive! The captain w ho had
been her a-cort the night liefore had left her
safely at home, and no one thought of sus
pecting him at the time. The chamber win
dow opened uon t io garden. Fooiatejis lead
ing up thereto showed that it was through
this window that t le murderer made his way.
The fact that not a jnwel had len misplaced
showed that it cou d not have been a robber
who had done tht deed. There were those
who invented all manner of theories. The
one most generally accepted was that some
one, struck by her teauty while at the ball,
had entered the chamber in the manner do
scribed with improper motive, and, finding
himself repulsed, quickly dispatched her.
Others believed tlat tho captain, who had
urged her to marry him, and finding her ob
durate, had committed tho deed to prevent
her from falling ,nto other hands. While
the seusation amor g the beleaguered people
was at its height Sherman's forces entered
the city, scattered the people and prevented
investigation; but wheu the people a year
later returned to their homes the talk of the
tragedy was renewed. The captain had been
killed meantime in the battle of Jouesboro,

this day is frequently spoken of. Atlanta

Eat n. nty of Onions.
No family ought to be without onions tbo
whole year round. Plant old onions in tho
fall, and they will come up at least three
weeks earlier in tbe spring than by spring
planting. Give children of all ages a few of
them raw, as soon as they are fit to lie oaten;
do not miss treatii.g them with a mess of raw
onions three or lour times a week. When
they get too large and strong to bo eaten raw,
then boil or roast them. During unhealthy
seasons, when diphtheria and like contagious
diseases prevail, t-nious ought to be eaten in
the spring of the year at least once a week.
Onions are invigorating aud prophylactic
beyond description. Children do not die of
diphtheria or scarlatina, auginosa, etc, where
onions are freely eateu. Hall's Journal of

Marriage Nor a Failure.
A New View of this great Question which
shows how Ladies may retain the
Love of their Husbands.
No worn an who ia unattractive In person, mind,
or disposition can hope to interest or hold men.
Bad complexion, dull eyes, a listless nature never
did or can attract mankind. On the other hand
how many women with clear skin, beneath which
the blood can be seen throbbing with health,
bright eyes and life and animation in ev ry move
ment, make the world a blessing to their hnsbamla
brotheaa, lovers or friends. The serre'. ot clear
skin, bright eyas and animation Is good circula
tion of the Ibood. When the blood ia slow tbe
parson la atnpld. Keep the blood moving. But
how? There ia but o le way and that la to help
Na ure by a gentle stimulant.
Exe'ciae ia a splendid etlmnlant but it le almost
impossible for ladies to lake tbe Und oj exercise
that will produce health an1 beauty- But the
blood must be kept moving, an I tha dircoery
which has done more to add health and beauty
than any other know i cause is Duffv'e Pure Malt
Whiskey. Thia great remedy aiiinnlates heath
Uy. It ia net an intoxicant. Thousands of
women who were once tired, depressed and dis
couraged are now in perle t health and beamy
entirely through ita use. Many prominent tem
perance ladies have given it their hearty endorse-m.-nt,
and clergyman and priests in every promi
nent city use and recommend it. threat care
should be shown iu buyin ' only the euiiiue, for
no bottled whiskey has the wonderful qualities
whica are poeae-aed by Duffy's.
When ladiea are k' pt bright and attractive and
buabanda are considerate aud kind, few marriages
will be "failures."
