It is pleasing to obtain official infor
mation that there is no danger of the im
mediate extinction of tbe American buf
falo, as this superb beast has found a
quiet acd happy home in tbe Yellowstone
National Park. It is to be feared, how
ever, that the habits and even tbe natural
qualities of the buffalo are undergoing a
serious change in the park, and that he
is becoming a tame and well-disposed
quadruped. It is truly sad to think that
tbe vast herds which roamed proudly
over the plains, even as late as the mid
dle of the present century, have disap
peared. An Empty Treasury.
A few days ago the Washington cors
respondent of the New York Herald sent
this very suegestive dispatch to his paper:
A deficit in the treasury of two and a
half million dollars woula appear on tbe
books today if money were called for to
meet the pension checks for i?26,000,00O
issued on June 4.
If these checks bad been -presented on
the day of issue a large number would
have been handed back to tbe owner with
the lacomic observation, "No funds.''
The government is relying upon the
courtesy or negligence of its pensioners not
to drive the treasury to bankruptcy. The
call from the pension office for $26,000,
000 for tbe drafts of June 4, has been big
ger than the treasury could meet. Only
about $19,000,0(10 of this amount has
tfeen deposited in the sub-treasuries to
meet tbe checks, and the net available
cash in tbe treasury bas been reduced to
Tbe entire cath balance today was
845,009.916. but of this sum $21,617,536
is on deposits in national banks and $20.
408,459 is in fractional silver and minor
The call which has been made on the
national banks for $3,000,000 will just
aoout prevent aDsointe bankruptcy by
enabling the treasury to pay tbe pension
checks as they are presented. Tbe pre
sentation is always slow, and this fact is
what tbe treasury officials are counting
upon for salvation between now and tbe
end of the month.
When the billion doilar congress met,
the question was how to dispose of the
surplus. When tbe present congress
meets, tbe question will be how to pro
vide for the deficit. Republican reckless
ness and extravanancs have left the
treasury almost as dry as a bleached bone,
as the Dubuque Telegraph truthfully bb
scrts, and it is quite possible that Becre
tary Foster, with the'purpose of replen
iahing the vaults, may add another to tbe
number of outrages already committed
by his party by selling bonds, thus in
creasing the interest-bearing debt and af
fording the national banks an oppor
tunity to increase their circulation . He
bas the authority to do this nnder the
law, and he is credited with tbe intention
of exercising it.
SUMMER HATS AND BONNETS.
Styles tarnished by the Milliner, for
Both Day and Erenins; Occasions.
Many of the French hats are as largo as
parasols. The prettiest are of transparent
rush straw, garlanded with trails and
bunches of roses, and devoid of anytl ing
in the nature of a lining. They are very
becoming to fresh young faces. A novelty
in dressy hats for young ladies is whf.t is
known as the basket straw hat. This U in
a thick braid, plaited in a flat round shape,
and wired around the edge. It is bent, in
a point in front, and into two shallow scal
lops at the back. Newer than the Co ati
nental hats are the four cornered ones in
Neapolitan straw. Leghorn hats ith
wide brims hare been reintroduced, this
time with the brims crinkled. A favorite
trimming for these are ostrich plumes.
A TARI&IAX HAT.
The hat shown in the cut is designed for
a carriage toilet, but is appropriately worn
on many occasions. It is of nut brown
straw, with trimmings of white guipure
lace and wintergreen ribbon, sparkling
with a rhinestxme buckle. A bunch it
roses, with their foliage, is placed under
the raised up brim at the back.
One of the newest French bonnets has
square front and a crown as flat as aboard.
It is composed of line transparent straw
lined with yellow silk, and decorated with
a cluster of yellow roses and brown velvet
loops. The back is caught up with a ros-;
and finished of! with narrow velvet strings
Some of the Greek bonnets are finished off
with a wreath of small blossoms which
surrounds the wearer's back hair.
Au example consisted of two narrow
bands of pink velvet covered with passe
menterie and a cluster of black and gold
Marguerites. The wreath for the back
hair was of pink rosebuds, and the string
were of velvet the same color. Numbered
with the crownless bonnets for evening
wear are those consisting of a narrow brim
of straw, rolled back from tbe face, and
surmounted by flowers and a bow of crepe
and ribbon. Jet is again in favor for
dress bonnets, and so is black lace; a
combination of the two furnishes a be
coming aud convenient bonnet for matrons.
Styles in Jrress Skirt.
The skirts of Paris dresses are as varied
in shape as in the fabrics of which they are
composed. They are cut straight or bias,
with gores or without, clinging or flowing,
with paniers or with flounces, and are
uniform only in being objectionably long
and in their tendency to creuter breadth.
The so called seamless skirt, straight in
front, with a bias back seam concealed in
the fullness, is much used for wool dresses
where the widt h of the fabric serves as the
length of the skirt. To give variety, the.
top of this skirt is drawn down in slight
folds to disclose a curved piece of embroid
ered silk set on each hip, an insertion of
the embroidery is set near the foot, or else
a narrow flounce is added. Such skirts
are four yards wide, yet French modistes
sometimes cut hem open down the middle
and insert a gored front breadth of silk,
trimming ail the edges of tbe wool skirt
with a narrow passemeuterie of balls of
slender pendants. Slichtly gored and bell
shaped skirts are greatly widened in new
gowns. The flounce at the foot is not so
deep, aud is fully gathered. Skirtsof tbin
fabrics are draped on the hips as slight
paniers. or else a separate breadth curves
from front to hips as paniers, then
descends in jabots each side of the
back. The skirt with folded front
breadth and sides lapped forward is on
many stately gowns. Pretty challies and
India silks have these lapping side breadths
trimmed with wide lace. Worth puts a
series of lace flounces up the front and
back of some skirts. He also introduces
panels in various ways, making the skirt
appear to open upon them. Harper's

How to Raise Mushrooms Easily.
It is not very difficult to raise mush
rooms by hand if one will take a little
pains intelligently. They are grown In
enormous quantities in France in caves,
largely for export, beiig picked while yet
they are only buttons and at their most
delicious stage. Collect a quantity oi
fresh horse droppings as free from straw as
possible, and lay them in an open shed in
a ridge shaped heap. While the pile is
"heating"' it should be turned from time
to time, and when the heat has mostly
subsided it should lie packed in a very
solid bed, over the surface of which pieces
of tawn, which may be bought at the
seedman's, may be put into holes three
inches deep. Two or three weeks later
cover the heap with an inch of loam,
patted gently with the spade, and the
mushrooms may Imj expected in about six
weeks. Earth dug from about the roots
of growing mushrooms will always
furnish spawn for planting. Washington
Couldn't Tick a Quarrel.
General Fournier was au apostle of tbe
unique in duelling. The mayor of Per
igueux was his bitter enemy, but as they
moved in widely different social circles the
general found some difficulty in picking a
quarrel. His opportunity came one day as
he was showing off before some ladies his
expertness with the pistol. The mayoi
passed, with a rose in his mouth. It was
a considerable distance from the general's
balcony to the mayor on the other side ol
the street, but the old riirhter knew his
skill. "Just notice, ladies," he said, "how
I will pick the mayor's rose." lie raised
the pistol. The women shrieked that he
should deMst, but too late. Tbe hamjuet
fell, and the rose and the mayor dropped
the latter, only from fright. The general's
expertness defeated his purpose. The
sureness of his aim terrified the mayor out
of sending the desired challenge. Sau
