Mrs. Hastings' Gowns.
The outfit of our present first
lady in the State of Pennsylvania,
Mrs. D. H. Hastings, wife of
the new Governor, is remarkable at
once for its quiet elegance and simplic
ity. The materials are of the choicest
qualities selected in colors best suited
to the complexion of the wearer and
made up by artists. Some choice gems
were created by the modiste who made
Mrs. Cleveland's gowns, others were de
signed in Philadelphia and still others,
it is whispered, some of her prettiest
Iresses, by her Bellefonte dressmaker.
A very handsome dress, the one
worn on Inauguration day and
which is now to be taken for her
visiting and calling costume is of
laly's cloth light mauve in color
and trimmed with velvet in the darkest
shade of the same color. In this suit a
change has been rung upon the almost
universal plain skirt, by piping either
side of the front breadth with a cord of
the velvet, quite as thick as one of her
n slender fingers.
The waist for this skirt is round and
Inished at the waist with a roll of tho
dark velvet, and at the neck with the
conventional stock collar. Jery full
sleeves finished at the wrists with velvet
roll, and a full vest of moire silk show
ing a shade of mauve between the very
light cloth and very dark velvet with
just the least bit of cream lace forming
a tiny jabot at the throat, the whole
forming one of the most exquisite com
binations imaginable and one that
could only have been evolved from the
brain of a "really" artist.
For carriage wear with this suit is a
coat of the dark mauve velvet, almost
if not quite three-quarter length, tight
fitting, fuK skirt and sleeves large
enough to take in the fashionably
large sleeves of the dress waist. A
Frenchy feature of this exquisite coat
is a very full fall of heavy cream lace,
which seems simply to have been
tacked at the throat and then left to
take its own course to the waist line.
With each full suit there is a small
bonnet to match.
One of Mrs. Hastings most becoming
gowns is a street suit of tho just now
popular velutina-cord in: so shade of
wood-brown and trimmeL w ;b that
rachest of all fur, the brown marten.
Velutina-cord, it may or may not be
known generally, is of corduroy weave
but with a surface as soft and glossy as
real velvet, and certainly promises to
be the most popular winter goods in
the market. The architectural idea 6f
Mrs. Hastings' suit is plain full skirt,
showing two wide box plaits at the
back. A coat basque with two small
box plaits from the yoke to the waist
line, back and front. The yoke was
rather wide, cut in three points back and
front, and edged with the brown mar
ten fur. The sleeves and edge of the
basque were finished with the same fur.
A pretty house grown and the one in
which Mrs. Hastings was receiving calls
upon the afternoon of my visit was a fine
cream wool shot with a cerise red silk
which combination was particularly
becoming to her brunette type.
The skirt of this gown was as plain
and full as possible pipe-organ plaits
at the back and the whole crinolined
"until able to stand alone."
The waist was laid in the new box
plaits with stripes of i'd velvet showing
from under them; a roll of red velvet
finished the edge of the waist and wide
folds of the same bound the throat.
Another, and probably more costly
than any is a Lyons black velvet, short
length. One peculiairity of Mrs. H's
wardrobe is the asence of trained
skirts. The waist of this velvet is
heavy with cut jet and so made that
with the sleeves removed and the
heavy yoke of jet, a fully-fledged eve
ning bodice is left all ready for wear.
With this velvet skirt there are to be
worn several waists of silk, chiffon and
grenadine that almost defy description.
One certainly does,
An illuminated grenadine in stripes
fully three inches in width, one stripe
in dark green shading out in the
lightest green, and the alternating
stripe in the darkest red shading into
palest pink. The stock, and waist, and
sleeves, finished with red velvet and
sparkling jet, the whole, when worn
with the elegant velvet skirt making
an almost bewildering combination and
one of Mrs. Hasting's most becoming
suits. M. T. B.

Under the name of wire glass a
new invention has been brought on
the market in Dresden. The process
of manufacture consists in furnishing
glass in a hot, plastic condition, with
a flexible metalic layer, Iron-wire net
Ling, for Instance, whIch is completely
Inclosed by the vitreous substance and
effectively protected against exterior
Influences, as dust, etc. The new
glass possesses much greater resisting
power than the ordinary material and
Is, It is claimed, Indifferent to the
most abrupt changes of temperature
and will even withstand open tire.
The glass Is especially adapted for
skylights, the powerful resisting
Qualities of the material enabling the
usual wire protectors to be dispensed
with. As wire glass cannot be cut
by the diamond except under the ap
plication of great force and cannot
be broken without creating consider
able noise, the substance is claimed
to be in a measure burglar-proof.
Why~ It 1s "a Ta'6ble ?Cat."
Some writers on the curiosities ot
Ainimal n'omenclature tell us that the
reason we call a feline of certain
markings of color a "tabby" cat is be
cause Tabitha was the goddess of the
crooked-clawed species. Wagner's
"Names and Their Meaning," although
it has a splendid department on the
nicknames of birds, does not refer to
those applied to the animal species at
all, therefore it will be of no use to
consult that work to find out why a
" tabby" cat bears its unique name, or
why a "Jerusalemu" donkey isso called.
In a curious old work (printed in Lon
don, in 1606) entitled, "Names Ap
plied to Animate Things," I find the
following, which seems to explain the
tabby cat enigma: "The ternme 'Tab
bie Cat' is derived fromi At ab, a famous
streete in Bagda1, at eittle of the Ori
snt. This streete is iEnbited by tho
manufacturers of a sillen sta~i calle 1
'atabi,' the waved markings of the
pratered siilke rasmbl')ing a cat's coat.
From that we call all cats so marked

From the Gulf of Mexico to th
North Pole and from the lakes to th
Rocky Mountains is a vast extent c
country crossed by no mountain chain
to intercept or retard the velocity o
air current. The extent of this coun
try is equalled by none on earth. Col
air being heavier to the square inc
than warm air, the cold air, when com
ing in contact with a warm curren
from the south, always predominates
forcing the warm air into the uppe
currents. The cause of cyclones is th
neeting of a head wind from the nort]
with a head wind from the south. The:
meet like two vast armies of men. Th<
pressure at the point of meeting is e<
great that the air, by comprehension
becomes heavier to the square ic
than wood or the human body, henci
either one will float in the same man
er that wood will float in water-i
loats because it is lighter to the squart
inch than water. Place water in a2
ordinary wash bowl and remove the
plug and it will be observed that it
passing out the water forms a circulai
reaction. Air being a liquid does th<
.ame in passing either upwards oi
ownwards; hence the funnel-shapet
spout of the cyclone centre. When
wo immense bodies of air coming fron:
pposite direction meet, the only
gress is upwards and sideways, and it
passing upwards it forms the funne:
he same as water passing out of r
ashbowl downwards. The theory tha1
cyclone forms a vacuum is absurd,
Withdraw air from a glass jar with at
ir-pump, and, a feather within
the vaccuum formed will drop with the
same velocity as lead, or, on the othei
and, you can compress air until it fa
heavier to the square inch than wood,
n which case wood will float in the
sir. The lifting power of a cyclone it
aused (1) by the compression or den.
sity of the air, and (2) by its velocity.
Cmbining the power of density witl:
that of velocity, which occurs at the
entre or funnel, no power can resisi
it. The feeling of suffocation or diffi
eulty in breathing when near the traci
f a cyclone is caused from the com

Miniature Electric Battery.
In contrast to the very large geners
tors of electricity-batteries and dyna
mo electric machinery-In such com.
mon use to-day, it may be interestin.;
to note what is perhaps the smnallest
electric battery ever constructed, and~
no doubt also the smallest generator
of electrical or mechanical energy.
This battery was constructed some~
years ago by one of the electricians of
the Boston Telephone Comparny, and
consisted of an ordinary glass head,
through which two wvires, cue of cop
per and the othe-r of i-on, were looped
and twisted so as to prevent their com
lg in contact. The wires acted as the
electrodes, and all that was necessary
to cause a current to flow was to place
a drop of acidulated water in the head.
Certainly such a minute battery tur
nished but an infinitesimal current, but
could be essily used in a delicate tele
phone; in fact, it is said to have been
actually used in signaliug to a distance
of neal- 2020 miles.-Cassier's Mag's

Some Idea in Canal Navigation.
F. W. Warner, in a paper recently
read at a meeting of the Rochester
Academy of Science, favors the adop
tion of a cog- system on the Erie
canals, by laying an iron track in the
bottom of the canal and making con
nection with it by adjustable cog
wheels, securing perfect alignment n,
and requiring little power. He says: u
"I believe in the near future we sball W
see long trains of eight or ten boats u
movirg east and west in our water
ways at the speed of not less tMan
ave miles an hour. The trains will
move noiselessly and the power will
not be expended in churning up the
water and daniaging the canal. These
boats will be run on schedule time
with greater accuracy than the rail.
way trains. The entire cost of trans. c
portation can be reduced to much .
less than one Mith of the present rate.
