TBS OlTEXStTH TRAGEDY.
Several cases ure on record w ulch are sim

occurred in New York mime eight years ago,
and attracted w ide notice, on account of tha
romantic stories about, prominent people
who were connected w ith it in one way or

bis skull was Imdly fractured.
A still more remarkable case is on the rec
ords if the t'haiiils-rs street hospital of a
man who was struck Is-hlnd the ear by the
shaft of a wagon as he was dislging across
the street. The shaft penetrated bis head to
the depth of an inch and a half, carrying
ahead of it a splintered disk of the same diam
eter with Itself, which was broken, or rather
cut. out of the skull by the blow. Tbe man
wulked uuaided to the hospital aud lived for
au hour and a bulf after getting there.
His vitality, though so great as to astonish
the physicians, was hardly greater thau that
of bill Futile, the notorious gambler, who
lived for more than twenty-four hours after
he bad ben shot through the heart. Of
course be could not have lived anything like
as long if the bullet had cut any of the Ves
sels of that orgau, but men have been known
to live a minute or so even after that had
happened. Iu one of tbe fumous Kentucky
brawls, a man who was so killed went to his
ofUos door after receiving his death wound,
and leveling his shot gun, fired and killed the
man who had-mlready killed him. Tha man
who shot first died first.

A Woman Who Thinks There Should lies
Method In This as in Other Work.
The feather duster is an abomination, writes
Christina Terhune Herrick in a recent num
ber of Tbe Housewife. In the bands of a
careless housemaid it Is flirted among th
furniture, up about the picture frames, down
amid the chair rungs, iuto nooks and corners,
scattering the dust everywhere, brushing th
iinpaliiable powder from one spot and driving
it into another, until, wbeu the maid retire,
from ber labors, all the dust in the room has
changisl its place., w bile but little of it he
been permanently remove.!.
There should be a methisl in dusting and
It should tie closely followed. First of all,
the rarjet should be brushed. A thorough
sweeping may not be necessary, but iu most
living rooms there is daily nwd of a carjiet
sweeper or dust pan aud brush, often of all
three. The carjs-t sweejier is admirable for
taking up the dirt in the middle of the room,
but it is practically useless in corners. Every
boueke'ier should have one of the dust pans
that con be held in place by the foot. The
gam in comfort is immeasurable to the wo
man who has been accustomed to bend her
self double wheu she wished to brush up the
fluff that she had gathered together with ber
The high places of t he room should next
re-eive attention, the cornices, curtain Kles,
tc. A Turk's head brush is iuvuluable here
and is easily improvised by tying a cloth or
tow vl around a feather duster uud attaching
this to the eu.l of a (sile long enough to en
able one to touch the ceiling w ith "be brush.
For the other parts of the room a cloth
must tie used. Old siik baudkerchiefs make
excellent dusters, but even they are not su
jsTior to those of cheese cloth. " These should
uot be too large. A duster a yard long bv
half a yard w ide is tug enough for ail or
dinary purposes. Cheese cloth is so cheap
tlmt there Is no reason wliy every family
should not tie provided with a generous sup
ply of dusters.
They must be hemmed, of course, and Ulav
t? prettily finished by a feather stitching of
bright marking cotton. Such dusters will go
iuto all the nooks and corners, gathering up
the dust and retaining it. They should be
shaken after using aud washed frequently.
It is a tedious business to dust the modern
parlor. Filled with bric-a-brac, adorned
with hangings over doors, window s and man
tles, ornamented with bits of drapery flung
over easels aud picture frames, it presents a
discouraging aspect to tbe busy housewife.
One must pay for having pretty and artistic
surroundings, tut, as long as the dust gather
ing agencies are kept out of sleeping rooms,
little harm is done. Everything should be
moled in dusting. There should lie no dusty
rims loft around ornaments to show bow the
cloth skimmed around tliem without touching
them. Such carelessness must be watched

slight skillfully instead of to perform her
For dusting tufted furniture, nothing Is

An Aristocratic wstnlue.
"You uieau dog collars," said a N'ew York
Fress reporter to the omniscient society man.
"No, sir; 1 mean a dog ring. You see,
fashionable imiple who love their jtg tired
of gold uud silver and studded colars, so, after
much laborious brain searching, they hit upon
the idea of a jeweled ring."
"Isn't the ring liable to slip off tbe animal's
leg when in action"
"It isn't for the leg. It's for the tail."
"Don't you think their jewels will excite
the cupidity of tbe dog stealers I"
"Undoubtedly; but you must remember
they will only be worn by animals w ho are
well able to take care of themselves."
"Don't you think that it would be an ex
cellent idea if society fieople provided their
dogs with eyeglasses aud toothpicks!"
"I never gave the subject any thought"
"And with increasing civilization, culture
and relliiemeut, oughtn't society cute to be
provided with bracelets P
"Really now, don't ask mo such questions.
We nieu look after the dogs. The welfare
and adornuieut of the cats is a matter for
the consideration of the ladies."
At first the reporter was inclined to believe
that Ids informant, who sucked most of his
know ledge from the head of bis walking stick,
was lying with Muucbausen-like aplomb. A
stroll up Fifth avenue, Jiowever, convinced
him that be had not been listening to an inno
cent Action. Within a quarter of an hour half
a dozen ringtailed bulldogs were encountered.
Each of them waddled along with a proper
pride, and each of them was accompanied by
one or more of those vapid specimens of in
cipient maubood known as dudes.
