AMERICA GETS TIIE BEST.
As Incident that Should Convert Worshippers
of Everything Parisian.
Writing of "Grand Opera in Its For
mative State." in the Woman's Home
Companion, John Gilmer Speed tells
this fact, which will astonish those
who consider Paris the Mecca of the
- best in artistic lines:
"Recently an American artist who
lives in Paris was visiting his family
in New York. He spent all the time
he could at the opera. His people
were quiet folks and could not under
stand tfie young man's enthusiasm.
They thougl t his fondness for music
was so great that perhaps he had
made a mistake in choosing his voca
tion and should have adopted the fid
dle and the bow instead of the palette
and brush. They were incredulous
when he told them that it was impos
sible to hear and see in Paris such
magnificent presentations of opera as
were common in New York. They
thought, as most ofsus think, that ev
ery kind of art flourishes better in
Paris than anywhere else. The idea
that in practical America their artis
tic son and brother could hear better
music than in Paris was something of
a shock to them. And well it might
have been, for Paris is the home of
art, anil art is still encouraged and
developed better there than here, for
there there is a religion of art, and the
votaries have a zeal and an enthu
siasm which compel respect. But not
withstanding this we have tMe price to
pay for what we want in this country,
and the liberality to pay as well. For
instance. Jean de Reszke. who is con
sidered by some the greatest grand
opera tenor the world has ever seen,
and generally conceded to be the pre
mier tenor of the decade now ending,
never gets less than fifteen hundred
dollars for an evening in America, and
ometimes as much as thIrty-five hun
red dollars; but in Italy, France or 1
ermany he would have to be content
th two hundred dollars; while his
ward in London might go as high as <
e hundred dollars. Naturally, I
iherefore, we get in the larger cities <
of America the best talent the world i
holds, and the past two seasons in
New York have been the most brilliant
the world has known."
The Lung Power of Animais. t
Very few people stop to think that e
the size of an animal's lungs has any
thing to do with the use of an animal. n
Yet the size of the lungs counts enor- C
mously when it comes-to the question
of laying on fat or of consuming fat b
that has been laid on. The hog has 0
the smallest lungs of our domestic -
animals and is, therefore, a great con
server of fat. Ii we want to get fat we f
can get It to greatest advantage i*
through the hog. The reason is that a
the smaller the lungs the less carbon a
they throw qf',/-and the less carbon I
- they throw o(hIe less s constried a

The race horse would be a h 1
mal ti fatten because he has immense
lungs and those Iungs are consuming
carbon at a great rate. The racer
must, therefore, have a well-balanced i
ration and his carbo-hydrate ration
must not be reduced below th.e regulat
Look For the "Planet of Romance,"
on May 28th.
Part of the investigations of May
28th will be directed, not to the sun
Itself, but to the space lying between'
the sun and Mercur~y. We are told in I
a paper by Julia MacNair Wright in<
the May "New Lippincott" that it has
been the dream of many astronomers a
that about half way between tlee sun ,
and Mercury lies a little planet, lost in 1
the efrulgence of the sun. Sir Wil- 1
11am Ball names this the "-Planet of 1
Romance." Other astronomers have j
searched for it, christening it Vulcan
before it has been found. If ever such
a planet rolled exactly between the
earth and the sun, it would sometimes
be seen crawling like a black dot across
the sun's disk. In the gloom of an
eclipse such an orb might show its
face if its position as regards the earth g
were favorable. Most astronomers r
have eggcluded that there is no such t
planet, but that the space between 5
* Mercury and the sun is empty. r

NEW WHIMS IN WEDDINGS.
The Matron of Honor a New Performner
at the Ceremony.
The matron of honor at up-to-date
weddings is a joy to many a girl whose
intimate friend is a young married
woman, or whose nearest and dearest
relative has entered into the estate of
matrimony some time previous.
Though the maid of honor is by no
means relegated by oblivion, the ma
tron of honor is her most decidedly
up-to-date success. The costume of
the maid of honor, too, varies emphat
ically from that worn by the maiden
attendant, a light costume, but one of
a more dignified character than that
suitable to the tender years of a
demoiselle d'honneur, is generally
chosen, a hat or perky little bonnet
being its accompaniment.
Another innovation is for the bride
groom to be accompanied by his sis
ter, who hands him the ring at the
crucial moment with much more
aplomb and savoire faire than marks
the demeanor of certain flurried best
A pretty thought, that can be car
ried out either in church or at home,
is to have the bridal procession pre
:eded by two youn women, who un
roll as they walk the broad white
satin ribbon that marks the passage
way for the nuptial party following.
Tis ribbon is held in a roll by two
oung men at the back, who let it out
slowly as the girls advance to the
ltar, fastening it when the fall path
s marked, and then walking up ahead
f the bridesmaids to -join the two
naids, who have fastened the ribbons,
:o the first pew or some other spot de-!
rised for such an attachment.
A similalfancy is to have the girl
riends of the bride, if she has eniough
vith whom she feels sufficiently in
imate to call upon for this office, to
orm a path edged by floral garlands
r even those of leaves, these being,
If course, cheaper than a florist's sup
ly of blooms. In fact, both varieties
f garlands can be made by the at
endants, this loving service adding
auch to the sentiment of the occasion,

ne, who declares that as she didn't c
ave any fuss and feathers when she
riginally walked up to the altar, ehe
itends to make up for it on her see
nd venture. Of course, the whiteC
'ock and the veil are out of the ques
on, but she has substituted in their e
bead a pale gray spangled tulle, with lF
tiny floral coronet, from which falls s
eli down n'.,n the train flowing ib
treams of tulle that have quite the I
ffective becomingness of a v-eil with- a

An unselfish little schoolgirl bride,
rhose associates are as poor as her- I
elf, is going to marry a very wealthy

rdding gift, instead of the usual
liece of jewelry, the companionship
f one of her girl friends on the round
he-world trip which is to be her
redding journey. The favored one

The Hair Is Waved.
Fashion still decrees the hair must
a waved, not in the small wave as
iough it had been frizzed, but in the
>ose soft waves that are always be
oming and look as though they were
atural. There are a great many dif
arent ways how of producing this
ravy effect besides using the hot
ons, but if the irons are not rough
or overheated, there is not a great
eal of danger of the hair being in-:
ired. The trouble is that people go -
n using the same irons even when I
iere is a roughness that is sure to
ome on any metal that is constantly I
eated, and it is this roughness that*
uts the hair. There are plenty of'
romen whose hair is in perfe-t condi
ion anj yet has been waved every day
:r some years, but it has been most
arefually done and the irons have been
bsolutely smooth. There is no eni
i devices for waving the hair-large
air-iu with a slide that holds thei
hair in place, taut are said to give
most natural wavy appearance, shoi9
pins with an overpiece of elastic, and
other pins too numerous to mention.
They all are good, but of course their
use demands that they be worn at
night; and they are not good for long
hair: the front and side locks can be
managed very well, but with the back
hair it is exceedingly difficult to give
a wave of the desired size if the hair
is long.-Harper's Bazar.

The 'Method Employed in Felling the
Giant Redwoods of California.
It is a most interesting sight to be
iold one of these giant redwoods fall.'
The process of cutting is effected
through the use of the axe and the,
saw. All axes are double-faced,i
through which much time is saved in
sharpening. Sometimes tho axes,
start the cut on both sides of the
trunk and at places about opposite
each other through the thickness of the'
tree. After the chopping has pene-J
trated to the depth of about'
two feet on each side, the saw is
started in the line of the incisicr.
and the job completed w.ith that in-,
strument. Generally, however, the,
direction in which the t-'ee is to fall is!
dete-m;-d, and the cut is made in
that side ti the depth of from onc
three feet. Then the choppers pass
to the cpposite side and begin sawing
at a point s3veral feet higher than the
place of the incision. As the saw

Fuel Oil Tests.
So far the tests with fuel oil in
tended as a substitute for coal on ships
of war, which are being made at Nor
folk and New York, do not appear to
have sustained the glowing reports of
tests made abroad. It is most prob
ible, however, that coal will some day
be superseded by some more easily
iandled fuel. The authorities having
:harge of the present tests have nearly
reached the conclusion that fuel oil
rwill be valuable only in times of emer
,ency, especially on board torpedo
joats, when it is necessary to get up
;team quickly. At such times the
luestion of economy need not enter
nto the matter. It is yet too early to
letermine whether fuel oil will be
;mokelcss, and the other features
which have recommended iu trial have
lot been fully demonstrated, therefore
t may be some time before anything
lefinite in the way of an improvement
vill be discovered.
