Wedding Cakes, New Style.
Who was the inventor of ther.cwivptl-
diug cakes? Whoever he was ho de
serves immortalizing, for his was a bril
liant idea, one I should havn lrn "tp
proud of myself had I thought of it. In
mo AVL-uuing c:u:e or more ancient type
there wus always a thick layer of whito
sugar which nobody cared about, a
medium layer of almond paste which

got, und an immense quantity of cake
oi wincti many only ato a few crumbs.
The latest specimen has a thin layer
of sugar, only just enough to look pretty,
and underneath are alternate layers of
cake and almond paste, one as thick as
The consequence is that no one is de
frauded of their lawful share of almond
paste or "love," as it is usually called,
and for purposes of distribution it is far
better, as the contents of the box do not
crumble away nearly so much as they did
when the principal portion was cake
alouo. If only some one would invent a
box which could not be rifled and was
bound to reach its lawful destination,
we should have nothing left to desire.
She Is Black One Tear and WbYte toe Next.
A woman appeared in Canton, Miss.,
Friday who attracted much attention.
She bus k, pori'nctly white face and hands
and short lanky luiir, with the features
of a r.eirro. The woman said that she
was born black and remained so until
she was 15 years tM. when she suddenly
turned white, remaining so for one year,
when she turned black again, tfince that
time she is alternately white and black,
not olouo in spots, but changes color en
tirely. She i-j fairly intelligent and says
she has never had a spell of sickness and
bas tiever taken a dose of medicine. She
lives near Sallis station on tbe Canton
and Alitrdeeu road. She says she can
not stand the sun at ail and wears a
double veil end heavy gloves. She says
if the sun .shine.-? o:j her skin for one min
ute it causes it to blister at once. She
bas been examined by physicians, who
are unable to account for the change in
her color. Cor. Isew Orleans Times

Wonia in Hie Telephone.
Lo7i?r distance telephoning has becomo
slit ile science, on its own account and
h?.i called into cslstor.ee a class of oper
ators who arc valuable by reason of the
eh'an.ie3 and sharpness with which they
jan pronoui -e words while speaking
It has also developod the fact that the
French lanpiage is better adapted to the Y
purposes of the, telephone than the Eng
hsh. Tho ordinary business of the long
distance telephone between Paris and
London is carried on in the French lan
guage. It is stated that the ct ;nsi(lcral)le
proportion of sibilant or hissing syllables
in English renders it a less easy and ac
curate means of communication.
Certain English woivls are especially
difficult of trjiibUiission by telephone.
The- word soMier" is cited as one of
tluse. Proper nr.raes frequently occur
in th! midst of an otherwi-o p rf-?ctly

which tho ear cannot possibly c.i'th.
