Dcbuqus Telegraph: Russell Sage's
income is estimated at f 15 a minute, yet
rich as be is be failed to make Toluntary
tender of a cent to a man whom he used
s a shield against the dynamite bomb.
It teems to be true, as Shakspeare says,
thaf'appetite grows on what it feed on. '
Sage's appetite has so long fed on greed
that the more be gets the more he w-tats
and the lees williug he is to part with
St. Locis Republic: Tbe Steve El
kins manifesto in favor of Harrison
eecms to have aroused tbe anti-ariminis-trationists
in the republican party to re
sewed activity. The prospects for Har
rison's defeat bave been improving ever
since its appearance. If all of the guns
under the control of tbe war department
are as well loaded as this for more execu
tion at the breech than tbe muzzle, thin
Steve is tbe right man in tbe right place.
Pcfscent to the call of Chairman
Delos P. Phelps, the democratic state
central committee is in session in Chica
go's today. The purpose of the meeting
is to fix the time and place for holding
the state conventicn, aid the basis of re
presentation. Mr. Phelps favors
a basis of representation the same
as in 1890, when there was some
thing !ike 700 or 800 delegates. He said
to a reporter, "I don't believe any good
can be accomplished by having a conven
tion of 1,100 or 1 200 delegates." Speak
ing of the committee meeting. Mr. Paelps
said. "It will be purely a business meet
ing with no love feast about it. Love
feasts are all right, but we democrats be
lieve in reserving our strength for the
time when the fight is on." The chair
man is right.
Kate Field writes interestingly on
antagonisms and friendships strangely
formed in the senate. A year-old case
of the fraternizing of political antaeon
ista was that of ex-Senator Ingalls and
Senator Carlisle, tbe two long, gaunt men
then in the senate. iDgalls' great hobby,
or ratber one of his great htbbies was the
advocacy of poor men in tbe s .nue. He
declaimed continually against tbe buying
of seats in that honorable body with all
the strength of his eloquenca. Thus on
Mr. Carlisle's arrival be was the first to
grasp him warmly by tbe band, and a
close intimacy followed, broken only by
the expiration of Senator Ingalls' term of
office. The latter had learned bow Mr.
Carlisle bbd gone to Frankfort, Ey , to
receive his senatorial nomination with
the sum total of his bank account stored
away in a secluded pocket, and amount
ing to somewhere between fiifteen and
nineteen cents. That circumstance com
pletely won tbe erratic Eansan's heart.
An eastern man suggests that a silver
palace be reared at the Columbian expo
sition of the bullion now in the treasury
"If the government," be says, "could get
permission from congress to recast 15.000
tons of it into slabs of 600 pounds each,
and one inch thick, this would give you
600.000 superficial feet one inch thick,
out of which you could build the most
beautiful structure the world ever saw
It would build a structure 400 feet by
300, with a tower of solid silver 300 leet
high on which you could place an Amer
ican eagle with wings 100 feet spread.
The silver palace worth $400,000,000
would be an attraction that would draw
millions of people who want to see some
thing new and grand. The cost of this
palace, in addition to the silver, need
not be over 1.000.000. Tbe army could
guard it, and none of it would be stolen.
as the pieces would be too beavv." Tbe
idea is unique.
Tbe Quincy Herald of last Friday con
tained an article on tbe value of gravel
roads, showing tbe falling off of trade to
Quincy merchants through tbe impass
able condition of the roads- At tbe cons
clnsion of the article was the following
description of how Missouri will deal
"Illinois can watch Missouri and gain
a little valuable information about this
matter from oar neighbors across the
swim. There measures have been taken
to have a general meeting of officials
from all the counties in the
state and formulate some plan
for bringing the question of
gravel roads before tbe state legisla
ture. If the mud increases year byyear,
as Apparently is tbe case in this part of
our state, the legislature will have to take
some action for the relief of farmers or
there wont be any farmers left to re
lieve. Seriously tbisquestion of improv
ing the roads of the state is pressing, end
some solution must be found either in
general legislation or local lawp,
or by tbe combined efforts of citizens
whote business interests and property
depends upon tbe condition of tbe coun
try roads 'round about."

face with a fresb, bright complexion T For

Fan tut lr Dresa Bodices New
Dress bodices promise to be more fantas
tic than ever. Some of them seem to be all
convolu Jons. An evening dress of palest
pink anl green brocade had a green velvet
bodice, arranged in crossway folds back
and fror t, and a pointed band of brocade,
trimmed with rows of gold passementerie,
which was also folded. The back of the
bodice v as exactly like the front. There
are corse let shaped bodices of black lace
for evening wear. In the accompanying
cut is illustrated a stylish low bodice in
white bi-ngaline silk, partly veiled with a
beaded corselet and bertha fringe in multi
color tit ta. Fringe to match is placed
around the basque, which is pointed front
and back. Bands of curled ostrich feathers
head the fringe and an aigrette appears on
one shou Ider.
STYLISH LOW BODICE.
One of t ie newest trimmings for the bot
tom of d :tss skirts is a narrow ruche of
silk. Passementerie bows are much used
for festooi ing lace fioutices. Swiss belts of
jet and deep jet fringes are the newest or
naments fir evening dresses. Lace prom
ises to be very fashionable. I .ace cuffs,
frills on si irts and a thousand other com
binations all tend to show that lace is
about to play an important part in tbe
fashions o:' the dav. Km broidery is thrown
into the bi ckground, but not so utterly as
to prevent it being still the best trimming
for velvet mantles and oilier garments
made of heavy materials. It is whispered
that sequi is are to take the place of the
mock gen s that have been employed in
dress trim nings for the past two or three
The vari ty of tea jackets is as extensive
as are tbe patterns in tea gowns. A pretty
model seen was of French gray clot h tabbed
around the bottom and braided with gold.
It had a re 1 plush waistcoat trimmed with
rTECKBAND AND SLEEVE FOK TEA JACKET.
Vandyke stripes of gold. Another, more
ornate, had a silk waistcoat and sleeves
covered with ecru lace and a full vest of
silk. A tea jacket that was extraordinary
but not pn tty was of curious striped silk
made like a Chinaman's jiicket; and one
that was pr tty but not extraordinary was
made of delicate brocade aud lace with long
lace sleeves wrinkled all the way up and
daintily farlIowed here and herewith rib
bon loops, it had a rililton girdle. The
more liicy or gauzelikc a tea jacket is the
more tiecom ng it is.
In the cut are illustrated a stylish neck
band and sl eve adapted to a tea jacket of
China crape, silk or other soft dainty fab
rics. The nt ckband is of silk covered with
folds of chiton aud finished off with an
embroidered jabot. The full ellow sleeve
shown is of t ic same material as the. jacket.
It is caught 1 p toward the waist with folds
of ribbon an 1 finished oil with a graduated
frilling of nibroidered chiffon to corre
spond with the epaulets and brace drapery.
BlouKes ft-r Iay und Evening Wear.
The blouse still retains its popularity.
To women w jo have to dress economically
it is almost indispensable. The newest
blouses for day wear are of plaid or striped
silk, trimme: with a .single row of feather
stitching around the collar, cuffs and waist
band. They are worn with tweed dresses,
and look very nice under the fashionable
open fronted coats. Kvening bodices are
wonderfully dressy. Some are made en
tirely of Valenciennes lace. The basque is
finished off with a deep flounce and the
sleeves are pi. fled on the shoulders and tied
with ribbon at the wrists. The co'lar is a
variation on -he Medici. A pale blue, eau
de Nil or rose colored silk slip looks pretty
under a lace t odice.
A very pref y bodice is made of pale pink
crepe de chine. It is called the Pandora.
The neck is cut in the favorite V shape
and trimmed vith a fluffy frill which forma
a kind of fichu, and the sleeves, which are
semitransparent, are trimmed at the elbow
with ribbon. It is a beautifully fitting
bodice and may be worn at the theater or
table d'hote. Another new model is made
of white silk and has pink silk sleeves. It
puts one in mi nd of a jockey's jacket Per
haps the prett est bodice of all is made of
sky blue silk puffed around the neck and
basque with soft, filmy stuff the same color.
The neck was cut modestly low aud th:
aleeves were m mewhat full and reached to
