Secbxtaby Fostee, in answer to a
house resolution, has admitted that war
rants and requisitions upon the treasury
amounting to $5,655 866 were presented
during February and "held up" until
March. He pleads in extenuation "press
of other business." This charge which
was made by democratic members of the
house and by others has been persistently
denied by republicans in and out of the
treasury department. The secretary's
statement shows how much dependence
can be placed upon republican denials
This It Helps Labor.
Irts a stock argument with republicans
that a high tariff is for the benefit of
workingmen. Indeed, we have been
told, times without number, that protec
tion not only makes wages but that it is a
panacea for all industrial ills. Indeed
the McKinley bill was to usher in the
millineum. There was to be an end of
strikes, lockouts and reductions, and the
men who toil for a living were to pass
their existence in the long, sought land of
milk and honey. This was the promise,
and now what are the facts?
The McKinley law has been on the
statute books over two years, and yet
labor was never before so unsettled. Take
the preceding month of April as an ex
ample and it will be seen how a war
tariff in time of peace has affected the

STYLES THAT PLEASE.
The Fmcy or Green A Practical 'Walk
ing Skirt Silks and Grenadines.
Gree i may be mentioned as the popular
color of the season. A dress of sea green
veiling lately seen had the crosscut seam
In the lck, and rested on the ground. The
sleeves were of black silk, with a broad
band f French trimming three inches
or four inches wide in gold and black,
with je; facets matching the galon on the
bodice; this described a point at the waist,
back ai d front, and the front of the bodice
had a full pointed piece of black silk cov-

ered with net richly embroidered in gold
sprays. The same galon and trimming
formed a Kint between the shoulders, and
the whole appeared to be cut en princesse.
Nothing t-ould be more simple, or at the
same time more stylish. A tea jacket in
soft green silk had a full front of crepe de
chine of the same tint, canght together
with gold passementerie into a knot at the
throat, the fullness disappearing in the
long waist formed of a folded belt of the
same soft material canght up like the

with black lace bow and foliage on one
side, and crown of pink roses and foliage.
Another p ctnresque wide brimmed hat
for summer is most becomingly bent, and
has for trimming a large rosette holding
three colo-ed tulips, carelessly thrown
across the crown. Another, of the three
cornered shape, has a ruche of lace border
ing it and a row of single cowslips, a few
cowslips supported by lace and narrow
velvet stan ling Up at the bock. Long
green ribbc ns hanging at the back are a
feature of tome attractive hats for young
The prestnt is a lace season. Lace is
largely usee on every possible form of gar
niture for millinery, both in black and all
shades of rit h cream; antique and guipure
laces are alsi much in favor.
The new vay of bordering the skirt with
a fall ruche, and placing swallow tail bows
at a distance above it, is pretty, and looks
well carried out in lace on evening gowns.
The elaborate dress sleeves in vogue have
made large t leeves a necessity in coats.
Paris dres: makers are sending out walk
ing dresses that will please women who
protest agai -ist the long bell skirts that
sweep the pavement. These retain the
bias cut in the back, but are rounded off
at the bottom of the skirt so as to escape
English twed gowns have pockets at the
sides of the Siirt, like men's trouser pock
ets. Some are buttoned over, with orna
mental butt ins. The evening and tea
gowns made en sacque, with tolerably
broad velvet ribbon brought up from under
each arm, and tied in loops on the sacque,
with very long flowing ends, are graceful.
Changeable surah silks are among novel
ties for the summer, and dotted black
grenadines w 11 be made up over change
able taffeta silks.
New 1 Craps and Millinery.
Height on t'.ie shoulders is no longer the
characteristic feature of capes and man
tles. The effect predominating in some of
the newest ones for spring and summer is
that of greater width obtained by the use
of wide lace trillings, large ribbon bows,
rosettes, etc The black silk mantle here
illustrated ha. a donble pelerine of full
spotted net fattened with rosettes on the
shoulders and finished in front with jet.
A large bow of moire ribbon with very
long ends is attached to the yoke at the
back. The ha- worn with this mantle has
a guipure brim and is trimmed with large
bows of heliotrope satin ribbon and Prince
of Wales plumes.
A DRESSY MAXT1E A!tD VaTTEATJ JACKET.
A new effect is secured in jackets having
the Watteau plait by means of a belt or
sash, as shown it our cut of a long jacket.
This jacket is of black poult de soie, with
sleeves and yoke in guipure lace. A Wat
teau plait is set i lto the back seam at the
bottom and drawn np to the neck outside
of the moire sash, which confines the full
front at the waist. The bonnet accom
panying this jacket is in ecru guipure over
a transparent drawn foundation, with
Welsh crown. T.ie trimmings are a band
of ecru ribbon, rosette of be be velvet rib
bon, osprey and tufts and velvet strings.
Summer Hats for Little Girls.
There are some charming summer hats
for little maids. These are in art silk,
flowered muslin, Venetian satin and crepon.
They have full cr iwns and shady brims,
lined with silk of a delicate color. There
is no lA xture that looks so fresh and dainty
as white and appl' green. A hat seen was
of soft silk in theai two shades.

THE PRAISE OF YAWNING.
A Model Physical Exercise Which Stimu
lates and Refreshes the Whole Body.
To yawn is to do a good deal more than
merely "to open wide the mouth through
drowsiness or weariness," as the diction
aries tells us. According to Mrs. Russell,
of Delsartean fame, the yawn is an invol
untary exercise which nature suggests to
us when, in consequence of sleep or drowsi
ness or ennui or cold or hunger or indiges
tion, something is needed to restore the
system to a state of general activity.
Through it and the movements which ac
company it the whole body, beginning with
the muscles of the throat and face, is stim
ulated and refreshed, the successive mo
tions extending themselves throughout the
entire frame and reaching finally to the
feet "A good yawn," says Mrs. Russell,
"is always slow, and the best uses every
articulation in the body probably every
muscle possibly refreshes every nerve
Not all at once or in jerks, but sloVly, in
perfect successions or rhythms, with the
best possible breathing. Certainly no gym
nast, with the single exception of Francois
Delsarte, ever so arranged the same ex
penditure of force, nervous and muscular,
as to result in an equal amount of invigor
ating effect upon the system." And again
we are informed that yawning "embodies
all the laws of growth needed for move
ments that are to give physical growth and
refreshment, and some of the laws which
are necessary to the higher growth, so
called, of the emotions and the intellect."
The moral of these observations would
appear to be that we ought all to yawn as
much as possible the oftener the better;
and further, since yawning comes so near
perfection as a mode of bodily exercise,
that we should do well to discard such con
ventionalities as dumb bells and the hori
zontal liar, and to cultivate our bodily
powers by merely lounging in our chairs
and yawning. Merely to think about it or
to read about it is enough to set some peo
ple agape, while, if these devices fail, the
desired result can be attained in a purely
mechanical fashion. Droop the eyelids as
if sleepy, at the same time rolling the eye
balls slightly upward, though without
closing the eyes; repeat the movement some
half dozen times and you will fiud yourself
beginning to yawn.
Hot Bathing In Japan.
In hygienic matters the Japanese have
everywhere a habit which may have a les
son for us, writes Dr. Benjamin Howard in
The Lancet. In their nightly bath and
morning wash the water is never cold,
never warm, but always hot as it can be
borne. To foreigners this habit seems very
surprising, but the most inveterate Eng
lishman, if he stays in the country long
enough, abandons hi cold tub in its favor.
The cold taking which it is suspected must
follow is found not to occur if the water
has been hot enough. This heat is main
tained by a little furnace beneath the bath.
In the bath the bather or bathers take a
prolonged soaking, the washing proper be
ing done on the bathroom floor; then fol
lows a second and final soaking, drying
with a towel and a lounge in bathing wrap
per. This habit seems to promote softness
and suppleness of the skin, and by persons
inclined to rheumatism is soon found to be
altogether preferable to the cold bath in
every particular. The poorest of the Jap
anese hear of a cold bath with amazement,
and would be sure the man who used it
must be a barbarian. With respect to the
superiority of the hot bath over the cold, I
have come to find that in mv own case cer
tainly the Japanese are right.
This May Be an Innocent Pleasure or a
Most Slfili AmuMueot.
People seem to think it necessary to
apologize for talking of their chief busi
ness in life. If a man makes a pun, good
or bad it is usually men who make puns
he assumes a sort of half guilty, half
pleased air, to be ready to look ashamed of
himself or proud, according to how his wit
is received. But when a man "talks shop"
he usually turns with some polite excuse
to whoever of the party may be "an out
sider," and yet this very topic may be of
interest to all, from the mere fact that
those talking on it are those most com
petent to discuss it thoroughly.
"Talking shop" may, to a great extent,
be called a paradox, for while it is one of
our most innocent pleasures, it is often
also one of our most selfish amusements.
To render it a selfish amusement it is
only necessary to introduce one uncon
While "talking shop" may be a great
pleasure, provided all present are interest
ed in or understand what they are talking
about, yet, if any false note be present in
the chord of perfect harmony which should
prevail in order to enjoy the talk comfort
ably, all is changed. To those discordant
minds let one word of advice be addressed,
which is. if you are present when shop U
being talked, sit still and say nothing
that is, if you are not thoroughly well in
formed on the subject. The intelligent
listener will seldom fail to learn something
from those who are discussing any point
which they understand, and their patience
will assuredly meet its reward.
Hits of Social Wisdom.
Tact is the art of putting yourself in an
other's place, and being quick about it.
To know the beauty of apology in its full
ness it should be met in the same spirit of
frankness. To receive an apology in a
doubting, grudging, ungracious way is a
disgrace. It is ill bred, ignoble.
It is hard to find fault with people who
think just as we do.
It pays 100 per cent, to be polite to every
one, from the garbage gatherer to the gov
ernor. "Give a boy address and accomplish
ments," says Emerson, "and you give him
the mastery of palaces and fortunes wher
ever he goes; he has not the trouble of
earning or owning them; they solicit him
to enter and possess."
Lord Chesterfield wrote: "It is better to
return a dropped fan genteelly than give a
thousand pounds awkwardly; you had bet
ter refuse a favor gracefully than grant it
clumsily. All your Greek can never ad
vance you from secretary to envoy or from
envoy to embassador, but your address,
your air, your manner, if good, may."
To get something for nothing is contrary
to the4aws of nature and mankind.
