Shor: fur lined cloaks are ma.le of plain
cloth in pretty shades of brown, red, terra

trimmed with opossum, bliu'k fox or lynx.
Sealskin jackets are very trim as regard
shap.!. A pretty jacket in favor has a tight
litting buck and semiloose front. A quite
new model is made in the Newmarket
sbapr and is edged with astrakhan and has
epau eties of the same fur. The short
Newmarket sealskins have much to com
ment: them ou the score of smartness and
nove'ty. They have pockets, revers, cuffs
and f ul! sleeves on the shoulders.
Anion.'.' the more salient novelties in fuf
are the ?-able or minx sleeves, introduced
into the long, handsome, fur lined cloaks
made of line ladies' cloth, and embellished
with l::ri;e buttons. These are intended
for triviui; or t ravelins;, and are costly.
Sealskin coats lined with satin have sable
or m:nk sleeves, as well as revers and col
lars. These are so arranged that they turn
back or fasten close. The fur jackets,

ting longer. Sable yokes are being in tro
duceil into some of the newest cloth driv
ing c oaks, and are carried often down td
the waist, hack and front in a ioint. Iiix
cloth garments have wide collars aud re

show a uarrow fur edging and, thrown
open, a fur lining.

The CraliT-y-" Apron.
This is the latest novelty in aprons. It
is made of a nght flowered French sateen,
and i trimmed in a tasteful and effective
mant.erwith lace. The floral design on
the ci-eam ground Is so arranged that there
is a dep border at the foot of the apron of
large handsome blooms, flowerets being
atudt ed over the rest of the tablier. The
deep .pointed Swiss band terminates with
a lace basque, and the bretelles are ar
ranged with a lace bib. These aprons
woul l be dressy for young housewives'
morn ing wear, and would prove most taste
ful fc r baxaars. Mme. I'atti has expressed
her a Imiration for thin apron, and in honor
of her it is called the Craig-y-Nos.
On-! of the prettiest rings has a bow knot
of sir all diamonds for a set. The dainti
ness of the design lies in the idea t hat these
ribbons are attached to the ends of the uo

The Pol eon of the Mosquito.
Mr. G. Dimmock, one of the most recent
eiperimenters with culices, forcibly says:
'1 a convinced that there is nse made of
a poisonous saliva, for when biting, if the
mosquito fails to draw blood, which it of
ten does on the back of .my hand, it may
have inserted its proboscis nearly full
length in from one to six directions in
the same place and withdrawn its pro
boscis; indeed, it may have inserted its
proboscis, as often occurs, in extremely
sensitive parts, yet in such cases, if no
blood be drawn, do more effect is produced
upon my skin than is produced by the prick
of a sharp needle; a red point appears, only
to disappear in a few hours.
"Certainly there has been as much tear
ing of tissues in such a case as there is
when the gnat settles on a place richer in
blood, and with a single probing draws its
fill." He remarks also that "the poisonous
effect on me, as proved by numerous ex
periments, is in direct proportion to the
length of time which the gnat has occupied
in actually drawing blood," and argues,
perhaps somewhat inconsequently, that
this indicates the constant outpouring of
some sort of poisonous fluid during the
blood sucking process. But notwithstand
ing this he was unable to detect any chan
nel for the conveyance of poison into the
And, moreover, it is difficult to conceive
of a double flow of liquid poison downward
and blood upward as taking place sim
ultaneously within the narrow compass of
the proboscis of a gnat or a mosquito. Or,
again, if the movements were not simul
taneous, but a down flow of poisou were
followed by an updraft of blood, it would
seem that the greater part of the poison
would be sucked out of the wound almost
as soon as it was instilled, and that, there
fore it could hardly exercise much influ
ence upon surrounding tissues. Knowl
edge. Double Nationality.
History supplies a great many cases in
which men have changed their nationality
very suddenly in order to serve personal
purposes, but no case is recorded, perhaps,
where one has changed so often as a cer
tain railroad conductor who serves on a
line connecting France and Germany.
This functionary changes his nationality
twice a day.
An American traveler who was ridiug
on the train between Basle and Belfort re
lates that, shortly after passing out of
Swiss into German territory, he had occa
sion to askthechief of the train some ques
tion about the journey, and put the in
quiry in French.
"Nein, nein:" said the conductor.
"Spreechen Sie Deutsch!" (No, no, speak
The American asked his question in the
liest German he could muster and receiv
ed an answer in that language.
Before long the train had traversed the
narrow belt of German territory and enter
ed France. Thetraveler again had occasion
to make an inquiry and this time address
ed the same conductor in German.
"Monsieur," said the chief of the train,
politely, "je ne parle que Francais." (I
speak nothing but French.)
As the man had to retrace his steps and
liecome a German again before he went to
lied, his changes, it is plain, came much
oftener than those of the famous vicar of
Bray, who changed his religion half a
dozen times under as many governments.
"Because," as he explained, "he was re
solved, no matter who was king, to live
and die the vicar of iJray.".
The rower f the Kj-e In the Dark.
Toward nightfall, as the light grows
scarce and dim. the pupil of the eye in
creases to its greatest size so as to catch
and absorb all the rays it possibly can.
Thus a cat's eye 'will grow large at dusk,
and those of the night loving owl are so
made as to produce a greater convergence
of the rays of light, so that in faint light
it can distinguish objects closer. It is as
great a mistake to suppose that cats can
see in theilark, where no liuht is, as it is
to suppose that under the influence of pas
sion or excitement man's eyes have the
power of emitting light. It is impossible,
as has been proved beyound a doubt by
manyexperimeuts in utterdarkness. True,
scat's eyes have a wonderful brilliancy,
but that is due to a "carpet of glittering
liliers'' called the tapetuiu.
It maV be to some extent in virtue of
this glitter that they possess their alleged
power of fascinating small birds and ot her
creatures, though we certainly need not
suppose that the terror aud inability to
move evinced by the victim are due to the
power of the eye alone. Fear of the ap
proaching monster, which instiuct tells
them is hostile to their life, is fully as para
lyzing as any eyeglitter. Chambers' Jour

An F.nglishman, who once traveled on
foot through Norway, says that he was
much attracted by the tameness of the
horses aud cows which he saw feeding
along the roadside. It indicated a kindly
disposition on the part of the people, he
thought, but he adds:
In my original notes I find a long para
graph overflow ing with sentimental ten
derness relative to these affectionate cows,

their loving licks; hut I do not transcribe
it. as niton further reflection it is evident
that the licking was mere cupboard love.
All cattle in inland, aud especially in
mountainous, districts have a strong crav
ing for salt, aud these cows were merely
licking the deposits from the sea spray
that had falling ou my clothes during the

Cows seemed to respond to the heart's fond
yearnings. But, alas! even the cows of
Surrendal were liking me for the salt I

Secrrte from the Confeasiennl.
A joiner being ordered to execute soma
repairs in a confessional which stood in
the Church of St. Roch, took the oppor
tunity to insert in the woodwork a micro
phone, which he connected by means of
a couple of wires with a telephone receiver
placed in an out of the way corner of the
church, where the man concealed himself
when people went to confession. In this
way he overheard a good many secrets,
which he turned to account by extorting
bush money from the poor penitent. The
priest was at first suspected of having be
trayed the secrets of the confessional, but
after awhile the truth came out and the
culprit was apprehended aud sent to jail.

Fortunate for the Thieve..
According to an officer of Scotland Tarda,
"there are 100,000 pickpockets in London
and each one of them knows an American
the moment he sees him." This, is very
fortunate for the pickpocket. He might
put hia fingers into the American's pocket
and never get them back again, Detroit
