The Union undertakes to read Ttie
Alters a lecture as to how a newspaper
should be conducted, and what class of
news should be published. The Arovs
has taken occasion to inform the Union
before that it does not look to that insti
tution for guidance in "shaping" Its policy
as a newspaper. It is passing strange
that a newspaper which conducted its
congressional campaign wholly through
anonymous corresnpodence should ob
ject to the suppression of names of par
ties to a domestic scandal, wbere it was
the privilege of the newspaper to da so.
On the other hand is it peculiarly strange
that the morning paper should evince so
much indignation that the recent scandal
should have been mentioned .
It is pleasing to read the reports of this
year's crops in the ever afflicted state of
Kansas. It is now officially announced
by the secretary of the Kansas board cf
agriculture that there are favorable pros
pects for the wheat crop, which is likely
to be good. It is true, of course, as we
are told by the secretary, that the grow
iog wheat has passed through a trying
ordeal, under bad conditions, and has
suffered from the drought, and has been
scorched by the hot sun, and has been in
fested by the Hessian fly, and has been
in a state that alarmed the farmers. And
yet, after all, and under all these adverse
circumstances, the Kansas wheat bas
grown pTetty well, so well that the
afflicted farmers in the southern tier of
counties have already begun the merry
work of harvesting, and "the damage to
the crops, from all causes combined, will
not be more than 25 per cent . " We con
gratulate the Kansas wheat raisers.
t arts About Taxr.
The Washington Post, a republican
paper edited by Frank Hatton, compiles
the following facts about taxes which
will be interesting, if not pleasant read
ing for every taxpayer:
For the next two years our govern
ment wi:l spend annually more than
To pay one year's expenses of the gov

The Ve of the Word "Quite."
Few writers seem to understand the cor
rect use of "quit." To say that a girl is
'quite pretty" should mean that she is ex
ceedingly pretty, whereas many writers
would us the phrase to express the idea
that she was rather pretty. Although the
Becond use has become common, it is better
to restrict the use of "quite" to its original
meaning, and to employ it always as an in
tensive rather than a diminutive. Cor.

In a Fifth avenue auction room a lot of
old arms and armor were put under the

very audibly to her companion, "but

PTYUsn HAin DRESSING.
A craceful style is shown at Fig. 2. This
is a pleasing change from the soniwhit
universal Greek mode of hair dressiug,
which has leen fashionable for some time.
It is arranged with a fringe or frizzed
front, with wavy hair rippling over the
top of the head and a catogan at the back.
Fig. 3 is an Improved Greek coiffure, the
marteaux curls extending just to the nape
of the neck, following the tendency of
fashion for the present season. The siape.
ueiug narrow, is neat and etteve
is ui j.i;,a.i'.sL- sitii. or
namented with a fichu of transparent soft
stuff edged with lace. The neck is cut
modestly low in a V back and front, and
the elbow sleeves are finished off very
daintily with ruffles of lace. Two lace
frills decorate the skirt, and panniers at the
top make the waist look small, and are uni
versally becoming to slight figures.
The favorite colors are cream, light blue,
pink and mauve. Stripe patterns wil: lie
worn more than checks this summer. The
cream colored stuffs are streaked v-ith
bright lines of green, pink, blue orgjld.
A pretty material in pale pink had narrow
stripes of white silk, and a lieautiful fa ric
in ivory white, made expressly for a oos
tutner who wanted something exclusive,
was patterned at intervals of about an inch
and a half with three lines of green. Ten

with small spots in a contrasting shi.de.
Elaborate tennis costumes are usually
made of delaine or foulard.
Shoes and Stocking. ,
The smartest shoes for wearing with c ut
door attire are of seal brown leather. Tjey
harmonize with any color, and are not so
conspicuous as Russia leather. Some pret

shades of tau and brown. The newest

John Bnll'a Favorite Diet Differ! from
That or ilia American Cousins.
The American wlo is for the moment
living in London restaurants may eat near
ly the same things and eat them in the
same fashion as he would in the first class
restaurants along Broadway, but he must
exert himself to do so, and unless he learns
from experience how to order, he will not
get food served as he desires it. The dif
ference in the gastronomic habits of Eng
land and America are so slight, and yet so
important, that a foreigner in London is
baffled to a most irritating degree in his
endeavor to discover the secret of living as
he likes, and those people who com here
for a short time only usually go away with
out ever learning the means of getting
things as they want them and not as the
cooks here customarily serve them.
Perhaps the most surprising enlighten
ment concerning the preparation of viands
in London that an American will undergo
is his discovery that in all restaurants that
staple and succulent article, roast beef, is
served well done, and that to obtain it in a
rare state, lone, persistent and Mrfii!iv
worded commands, sometimes threats, are
necessary, i oelieve 1 am right in assum
ing mat an invariable opinion in America
prevails to the effect that the Londoner de
mamls that his beef be a rich crimson, full
of ruby juices and with only a crispness iV)
ine omsiue. a stranger who is in the habit
of eating it in this form first neglects c
mention his preference to his waiter here.
for the reason that he feels sure it is never
served otherwise in England. To his ex
treme astonishment it is brought ttiim
dark, well cooked brown.
He then informs his waiter that he likes
his beef underdone, or at least he uses the
word underdone if he has learned that the
term rare is not very well understood by
London servants. On the second trial he
receives a piece of meat that may possibly
have a slight suggestion of pinkness in its
center. He then logins to realize that the
conception of the term underdone is not
thoroughly understood in the particular
place where he is eating, and resolves to say
nothing more but eat his well cooked beel
and trust for better luck another time. In
the next place he eats, however, his experi
ence is the same, and it is many days be
fore he learns that Londoners as a people
do not eat rare meat, and that to get it one
must directa great amount of energetic de
scription upon a waiter, who must be made
to comprehend that the beef is desired not
as he and the cook would call underdone,
but very, very, very underdone the very
most underdone, in fact, that the kitchen
After thoroughly impressing a partieu
lar waiter with one s views on the point
for several days in succession a man will,
if he remembers the inevitable tips, get
beef as delicious, probably more so, than
can be found elsewhere in the world. For
the quality of English beef can never be
questioned. I have never yet had a piece
oi mienor oeer served to me in Encland
even the most secluded country inns excel
ling in the product.
The mutton chop of Chicago is a mutton
cutlet in London. The London chop is a
round piece of meat encircling a small
bone. The only London chop cut in the
American style is termed a "chump chop,"
and is of the large variety called by Amer
icans English mutton chop." To secure
the small loin chops it is necessary to al
ways ask for cutlets, Cor. Chicago Her-
Difference in Pitch.
The question of pitch has always been a
ourve vi uispuie among musicians, some
advocating a high, others a low pitch. By
pitch is meant the acuteness of musical
sounds, and this is dependent on the num
ber of vibrations in a second. The greater
the number the higher the pitch, and vice
versa. While it is important to have a
uniform standard of pitch, musicians have
never been able to obtain it, from the fact
that no general concerted movement has
been made in that direction. There are,
therefore, several pitches, the Inchest of
which is the American, the English com
ing next, then the German and lastly the
The C tuning fork, at American pitch,
gives iV4G vibrations to the second, the En
glish pitch is 540, the German 52S and the
French 5ii Even the last named is much
higher than the pitch to which the classi
cal composers were accustomed, as the
pitch of 1G99. the pitch of Haydn. Handel,
Bach and Mozart was but 4S9 vibrations
per second, and some of their vocal works
can scarcely be rendered by the singers of
the present day on account of the differ
ence in pitch. The tendency at present is
toward a lower pitch, and if the manufact
urers of pianos, of organs and of band in
struments act in concert the end can be
secured. St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
The White Shark.
The shark of sharks, the real "man
eater," and the one most dreaded, is the
white shark. This variety reaches a length
of thirty-five feet and a weight of 2,000
pounds. Its head is long and flat, and the
snout far overhangs the mouth. Its six
rows of teeth are sharp as lancets, and
notched like saws. Its mouth is very
large, so that one has been known to cut a
man's body completely in two at a single
snap of its cruel jaws, and another to swal
low one at a gulp. Near Calcutta one of
these sharks was seen to swallow a bul
lock's head, horns and all.
From the stomach of another a bull's
hide was taken entire, and the sailor who
made the discovery insisted that the bull
had been swallowed whole, and all except
the hide had been digested. From the
stomach of another was taken a lady's
workbox, filled with the usual contents,
scissors and all. It is commonly the white
shark which follows the vessel at sea day
after day and week after week. London
