A very popular trick with magicians, says
Tb fittsburg Dispatch, Is performed la this
way: iTovtilo a book of plain paper, of what-
ever thickness yon please. Turn over seven
leaves from the boglnning, and paint a group
' of flowers; tbnn turn over seven more leaves
and paint the same again, and so on until you
bave turned tbo book throucb to the rod.
Then paste a (dip of paper to each of the painted
leaves., Turn tho book over again and paint
on every sixth loaf a parrot, and then paste
slips upon them as you did upon ths 'flrst
Proceed in this manner until you have painted
the oooit full of pictures of various sorts, tak
ing cant on side of the loaves is left white.
In giving the exhibition, run the leaves
through with the thumb, and: it will appear
full if flowors; blow on it for Wert and run
through agnin, and it will aptiear full of par
rots, and so on until the book seems to change
into the di.Torent pictures youjhavo painted;
then, quickly reversing the bdok, It will ap
pear all blank pages. It takes a little time to
make one, bnt tho effect is really wonderful
Cover the mouth of a wine glass with a
thin sheet of p.ipr, over which scatter a
layer of line saml. The vibrations excited in
the air by the sound of a musical instrument
held within a ftw inches of the paper will

To find a number a person thinks of use
Iherff ollowing method: Lot a person think
of a number, say tt. Tell him to multiply it
by 8. Ask him then to add 1 ; then multiply by
S. then-add to this tho number thought of.
The result will bo G3. After he informs yon
of the entiro amount, yon strike off the last
number, which will leave 6, the original
number. Another way is this: Suppose
the number thought of be 64 let him double
it; then add 4, multiply by 6; add 12; multi
ply by 10. Ho then informs you the amount
produced. Yon must in every case subtract
820. The remainder is, in this example, 600.
Strike off tho two ciphers and announce that
the number ho thought of was 6.
By taking a long piece of wood, such as the
handle of a broom, and placing a watch at
one end, tho ticking will bo hoard very dis
tinctly. By placing a garden mail upon a piece of
glass it will produce, by drawing itself along,
a tery sweet music, similar to the musical
glasses often hoard. This sounds rather queer,
but just try it, and you have music equal to

If a person has an electric stool handy, a
very amusing trick can bo performed. " Let
any onechallengoapentleman not acquainted
with the experiment to favor her with a
saluto. The lady mounts the glass stool and
takes hpld of a chair connected with the
prime conductor. Tho gentleman approaches
and attempts to Imprint the seal of soft af
fection upon her coral lips. Then a spark
will fly in his face, which generally deters
him from his rash and wicked intention.
If a person stands on the same stool the
electricity will pass from the conductor to
him, and if a person touches hhn on the nose,
parka vf fire will issue from it to the great
aipaserocDt of tho audience.
Mix a grain or two of potassium with an
equal quanity of sodium, add a globule of

shaken, will take fire and burn vividly.
She Earned a Happy Home.
Women roust loam to preach. They must
learn that whilo men hare hearts as soft ay
their own, they carry them between shells as
an oyster does bis whole incorporation, and
that shell closes as surely upon a sermon as
the other kind docs on a stick. (Ve all know
how women are bound to marry men that
they do not really approve of. Some women
do this out of an evangelical missionary spirit ;
others do so for lack of anything more ""gic
The ones who marry tho last man, the only
man, are apt to get along better in reforma
tory work than the missionaries. Why Be
cause they preach lesn.
A worthy examplo of this reformatory
principle of non-preachment now adorns New
York society. A very pretty, clever woman
wan asked by a man about town to marry
him. She was a girl who bad had but a
scant supply of those aids to matrimony
which surround a rich girl, and she had
never bad an offer that was so eligible from
a worldly point of view. She summed
tho situation up and accepted him.
When asked her reasons by a man
who wan a closer confidant than any
womaa could have been to her curious
nature, she put her summing up in words:
"That man lias run his race. I believe he is
clear mmdod man, and that he has seen
enough of bad women and gay Ufo to appre
ciate a decent wife and a tempting home. He
drinks more or less, I know; but it is custom
more than hubit. I know he is the soul of
honor in business, and I do not believe that
any man who lives up to his contracts In a
buatnee way is going to break a contract
with the woman he loves. Ho loves me; I
am fond of him ; and I am going to be a wife
to be envied by every mother's girl who is
trotting off done up in rose color with beard
less boys who have all their 'fun' yet to
She married him three years ago, and she
laid out a time table that was worthy of an
artist. She promised herself five things: To
be non-dumonfitrative at breakfast, to be
bright and jolly at dinner, to be loving and
babyish after dinner; not to have a first
aquabblo, and never to preach at him, but at
the things he did.
Experience has taught every clever woman
the value of these first four resolves, but her
Interpretation of the preaching clause was
unique. Her treatment of the drinking
question was this: She didn't say 'twas
wicked, or horrid, or brutal She simply
laughed at men who liked to have their
mouths taste nasty in the morning, and who
didnt know it was as pleasant for a
to Uss a nice clean man as it was for a man
to kiss a sweet mouthed woman. To this she
would now and again add a wide eyed wonder
that a man could find it a pleasure to make
himself feel dizzy and ill just for the sake of
saying idlotio things at night and feeling ill
and disagreeable in the morning.
What was the result? She was so clever
and amiable about it that the man never once
gave her the credit of thinking him anything
bnt perfection. He loved her and was proud
of her, and bo knew enough of the ways of
this wicked world to be anxious to be the one
man in it to her. The result, friends, is that
this man is the most temperate man who ever
topped this side of being a Prohibitionist;
that he swears by the goodness of that clever
wife of his, and that sho is one of the hap
piest women who ever had the sense to appro
ciate her bappine-a when sho found It

his hands behind him began to pull from the
window two fino muuiers. Mrs. Abbott
all this tinio was watching the strange
movements of the man, and saw him
take the mufflers and put them In his
pocket Without a word to any one, Mrs.
Abbott came from buhind the counter, where
she was doing duty, and edged around to
where the man with tho stolen mufflers was
standing. W ben she got near enough to him,
Mrs. Abbott deftly put bar hand in the man's
pocket and drew forth the mufflers. The lady
friend, seeing tlie act, began laughing, and
the stranger looked around and prepared to
move off. Before going he once more put bis

that the niulHurs were gone most mysteri
The man was surprised. He looked it He
also became embarrassed, as the ladies stared
at him and laughed. He walked outside and
stood for a moment on the porch. Suddenly
he turned and looked in the store, but his

Mrs. Abbott quietly folding the mufflers she
had relieved him of. Tho man gavexme long

"I would have committed that follow with
out oven a hearing." Trenton Advertiser.
The Irish ladies are perhaps the prettiest in
the wide world, always excepting our fair
cousins, the 1 ankee belles. Their features,
it is true, are less regular than those of Eng
lish women, but they triumph over them
with their soft creamy complexions, their
large, appealing gray blue eyes and long
kBhes, and a sort of indefinable charm and
demure coquetry, yet thoroughly modest
manners. "Every third Irish woman," wrote
the queen in her diary when last visiting the
country, "is beautiful, and some of tbent re
markably so. Their hair and eyes are simply
lovely." Apart from personal charms,
it Is impossible not to admire tho gen
tle grace and dignity of the wives and
daughters of tho Emerald Isle. Go where
you will, I defy you to find an Irish woman
who is otherwise than naturally distinguished
the very barmaids being superior In bear
ing and speech to many English duchesses.
The list of beauties is a long one, and looking
back we can recall histories of the extraor
dinary loveliness of tho three Miss Gunnings,
who, when they came up to London, had
actually to be escorted in Hydo -ark by a
guard of soldiers sont by order of tho secre
tary of state, so overwhelmingly was the
crowd pressing upon them. Then there were
Lady Denny, Lady Cahir, Lady Clare and
many others, to say nothing of the present
young Duchess of Lelnster, one of tho most
attractive women of this or any other day.
London Cor. San Francisco Chronicle.
Training: of Children.
It seems almost a satire to speak of the gov
ernment of children, there is so little of it
No one can more deeply sympathize with the
trials of a mother than does the writer. She
understands every tired look, every Impa
tient gesture, every discouraged expression,
but alas! sho realizes also the terrible failure
made by so meny mothers to manage their
children in a wise and judicious manner.
What a majority of children need is to be
saved from their mothers. Especially is this
truo of young mothers. It makes one heart
sick to see a girl scarcely arrived at maturity
intrusted with the ' moral, mental and
physical training of that most wonderful
creation, a child. The possibilities of good
and evil that lie enfolded within that tiny
form should make the responsibility of a
parent the most sacred on earth. But lest this
sense of responsibility may not be sufficiently
great, there comes into tho hearts of parents
when a child is born, the purest and strongest
and most enduring love possible to humanity.
But thero is no one virtue, that is able to meet
tho requirements oC life unless it is re-enforced
by others, and unless this parent love be ov
companied by wisdom and firmness and good
sense, the child, in many instances, might be
more properly brought up by strangers. Ida
Harper In Fireman's Magazine
White Fan and Furniture.
With tho Yerestchagin nuauun revival has
come a mania for furnishing with furs. A
high novelty is an entire floor covering of
white rugs, with white enameled furniture
and brass ornaments, lamps, plaques and
tables. "It takes one back so close to a state
of nature, don't you know; it's so simple and
primitive, and puts one en rapport with the
huntsman," says a youthful person of the
female persuasion, who buries her face in a
polar bear skin, hiding her hands in the
sheeny fur. "Fur and animal skin rugs are
company. I couldnt sleep unless I lay on
one," and sho tilts her blondo bead with a
pensive droop of her snowy lids. Tho silky
fur of the Arctic fox is tho favorite for the
parlor, though goat and wolf skins may be
seen thrown over couches and masking the
hall settee. Mrs. White law Hold leads in fur
furnishings. She has thousands of dollars In
blacTt bear and grizzly bear and tiger skins
thrown on the marble pavements of the great
hall in the Villnrd mansion in which she
lives, and over which the members of the
Architectural league were conducted some
days ago. Fur carpets even are devised.
Smooth fawn skins make the body, with a

Sirs. Brows log's Style.
If one were asked the chief qualities of Mrs.
Browning's jrrork, one would say as Mr.
Swinburne said of Byron's, its sincerity and
its strength. Faults it, of course, possesses.
"She would rhyme moon to table," used to
be said of her in jest, and certainly no more
monstrous rhymes are to bo found In all
literature than some of those we come across
in Mrs. Browning's poems. But her rugged
ness was never the result of carelessness. It
was deliberate, as her letters to Mr. Horne
show very clearly. She refused to sandpaper
her muse, bhe disliked facile smoothness and
artificial polish. In her very rejection of art
she was an artist She intended to produce a
certain effect by certain means, and she suc
ceeded, and her indifference to complete
assonance rhyme often gives a splendid
richness to her verso, and brings into it a
pleasurable element of surprise. Oscar Wilde
in London Queen.
Intellect la Balrdresslng.
The ladies have been trying to let the
hair fall down on the nape and not to wear it
high on the head as formerly. But I think
the attempt will prove abortive. Young la
dies with pretty necks like to show them and
rebel at this decree. There is unquestionably
intellect and a thousand other charms dis
played in the high dressing of the hair.
Whenever the upward line of the forehead la
continued, it is f sit that mental dignity is
given. Of all the weapons a woman possesses
either for good or evil, their expression lies
in her hair. It is tho low head, with loose
wandering tresses which, from the days of
the sirens to those of Louis XIV, has most
undeniably revealed the Delilah. Gather them
up and the woman is reformed. On this ac
count the loose, flowing hair is only suitable
for children or very young girls. A woman
with her hair over her shoulders looks untidy
or something worse. The high style of
dressing has the advantage of bringing out
the forehead, not protruding it bare and
bold, as when the hair was drawn tightly
back from it, the fashion some years ago.
Mrs. Scott-Siddons has been a beautiful
woman and is still such, notwithstanding the
fact that the dewy freshness of her first
youth has passed away. Her large, brilliant
black eyes are wonderful, and will always
give an appearance of youth to her face.
Their fires will light her beauty so long as
she has life. Native grace of expression is
her birthright She is an animated, natural
talker, and is easily drawn into interesting
conversation, which she is quite able to con
duct without any assistance. As she walked
leisurely into the parlor at the Albany hotel,
she was attired in a little plum colored silk
gown, with a cloak of the stuns material
trimmed with gray fur, and a low Kngjiuh
turban which sat squarely down over her
arched brows, and was as becoming as ever
bat was to fair lady. Although In easy trav
eling costume, one could see that her taste in
dress is for striking aud odd effects. Under
her clonk she wore a red jacket A great
brooch of dead gold in an antique design
clasped her collar. She wore several brace
lets of serpentine design, and from her watch
chain depended group of curious trinkets
and a red seal Denver Republican.

Marriage No: a Failure.
A New View of this great Question which
shov8 how Ladies may retain the
Love of their Husbands.
No woman 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 csn attract mankind. On the other hand
bow many women with clear skin, beneath which
the blood can be eeeo throbbing wi.h health,
bright eyes and life and animation In ev ry move
ment, make the world a blessing to their hnsbamis
brothers, lovers or friends. The secret cf clear
skin, bright eyes sud animation is good circula
tion of the lbood. When the blood is slow the
person Is stupid. Keep the blood moving. But
how? There is bat o.te way and that is to help
Nsure by a gentle stimulant.
Exercise is a splendid stimulant but it is almost
impossible for ladies to trite the t ind oj exercise
thit will produce health and beauty. But the
blood must be kept moving, an I the rtireo.erv
which has done more to add health and beantv
than any other know . cause is Duffy's Pure Malt
Whlakey. This great remedy stimulates ha th
ily. It s not an in toxic nt. Thousands of
women who were once tired, depressed snd dis

entirely through Its nse. Many ttromlnent tem
perance ladles have given i their hearty endor-e-m-
nt, nd clergym- n and priests in every promi
nent city use and recomoiend it. tireat care
should be shown in buy in only t!ie cuniue, for
no bottled whiskey hag the wonderful qualities
whicn are posse-sed by rnffy's.
When ladies are k- pt bright snd attractive and
husband, are considerate sud kind, few marriages
will b '"failures."
