He Meets with a W arm Reception as the j
Be?nlt of Mistaken Identity.
; There is a farmer living just north of .
Evanston and a book figent somewhere in ,
the cosmopolitan desert of Chicago, each
of whom feels that he is the victim of a
cruel Circumstance, says the Chicago
Chronicle. . 7
>l?astvweek the; farmer had a note.fr?m
'a nephew to .say that che -boy would visit . .
the-farm on Thursday. Uncle and nephew
had not met for fifteen years, and'
the, old man drove to the station in .'his
most comfortable.^ coat, .-that he might
welcome his1 sister's jonly child. But the
young man failed to come. After wait?
ing .until the..: last passenger had disap?
peared the old man drove away, disap?
pointed. .
The book agent entered into the drama-.
[tis- personae early the next-morning.
Looking over the top .rail of the barn?
yard gate he called, "Hello, uncle."
- 'The book agent never got such a recep-. .
tion^ b?&re in all his life. The farmer
flung the gate wide open, seized the
'agent's hand, and pressed a whiskered
kiss on the ironclad cheek.,
: : :"Say, this must be Heaven," murmured.
; the agent, folio wing the farmer into-the
house and explaining that everybody
at home was'as hwell as could be ex?
pected. Not tlU the agent was full of
;a boneda dinner and .attempting to sell
-a book did the farmer . began to see a dim
light. - Charged with impersonating : the
missing nephew, the agent explained,
j that he greeted all, - elderly strangers- as, -
.**uncle;" that he even':had a few almost
real' ones in - South Clark street in
. When last seen by the farmer the agent! .
was still running, and when the real
nephew does come he may find an electric
current in the latch-string. \ ,
Thousands of ^nshel? Piled on the Open '
-^Sod WaitibSr for Transportation.
For the first time in its history, says
XesSe's-Weekly, Kansas has more wheat
than it knows what to do with. Not only,
/axe, the granaries and bins running over
with grain, but the elevators are filled
and the farmers are still bringing it to
markefc by hundreds of thousands of
bushels. The tong dry weather was, in a
sense, a bonanza for wheat raisers. Much
of .the grain was so heavy that it fell to
'the ground and would have been lost bad
there been wet weather. But with the long "
hot; Clear days every straw could be
gathered, most of (the farmers running the, ;
threshing machines into the field and haul?
ing the grain from the shocks to the ma?
chine. The grain has all been of the best ,
quality and the yield from twenty to
thirty-five bushels per acre. Not less than
80,000,000 -bushels will be gathered, and the ' 1
high price is giving the farmers a fine in?
As the strings of wagons came to mar?
ket in 'the wheat belt the railroads' were
swamped. They could not furnish cars i
and the elevators were soon filled to over?
flowing. Even in the small stations twenty .
to thirty teams were waiting to be un?
loaded all day through the latter part of
the threshing. The buyers finally began
piling the grain on the prarie. Great heaps
of 30,000 to 50.000 bushels have been stored '.
on the open sod and there they will remain !
until such time as cars can be secured in
which to ship the grain. The sun does not '.
hurt it, no one can steal it and so little ?
rain falls during the summer that there ?
3s practically no danger from that source.
Some enterprising buyers have secured '
circus tents and placed them over the piles,
making curious features of ' the prairie '
landscape. ,
The Boston Transcript (Rep) points out i
that the demand for the ship subsidy j
scheme does not proceed from the alleged
beneficiaries theory. "Subsidy or no sub- ,
sidy, the ship building interests of the \
country do not appear to be in a languish- j
ing condition," remarks the Transcript, i
"The law of supply and demand does not i
cease its operations to await legislation, j
and just now the ship builders do not seem ]
to be worrying much about the future." j
The real benefits would be confined to a i
limited clique, which, with the assistance i
of the politicians, are making all the de- <
maud. ' j

Sombre Color? ns:? and Neat Effects-Da
and Evening Skirt?-Wrinkles in Col
lars-Very Few Chan??? from Lat

(Prom the Haberdasher.)
The coraing1 autumn and winter seaso
?frill differ hui" little in the sartorial sens
from- that of'last year. The changes ha\
been very few, and in the main represer
;sbmel slight modification , of or departui
from, standards that have "become ver
; familiar. M?n's dress is bein?: held dow
to very conventional lines. The run <
?color that- was the distinguishing featui
"of"last~year ls .to be curtailed and cole
iwill not be prominent in anything; tha
man wears. Sombre tones in overcoating
and suitings and -very neat color effects i
cravatings and shirtings will form th
most prominent and distinguishing featui
in the mode^df .the coming season.
|pXhave.?observed in.looking over the nei
goods for autumn that all that is calle
new, , paradoxical though, it may seem, i
really old. This, is the modern tendency i
all-things related even in the slightest de
degree to art. -The painters are drawin
on the old schools for inspirations, design
-ers are: revelling in the aft of the sever
:teenth century/house decorators are copy
lng old interiors 'and furniture and the ai
.cM.teets are^rawing inspirations from th
Greek and Roman ' schools. In dress w
are modifying or. changing fashions tha
haye' been in vogue, before. The culross
&he wing collar,; the skirted greatcoats an
: tieVnew- riarfow^tip shoes are mere revi
vals of old-time, favorites.

of rwhich ^l'.show in .the waistcoat open
nig;; The.shiri^i?r wear with the evening
'jacket iwiir be the same as-that worn wit!
-the WaUowtail-ooat.? Some shirt maker
show a fine-pleated shirt for wear with thi
jacket, and no doubt.it will be quite pop
?ulat; ;With^tne^unger ; set. The colorei
shirts f of 7 day : wear show, , witii plaii
besoms. and i the patterns are . noticeably
'.hea? Jl$ie"figures are printed on made
plans or"on satin broches or percales. Th<
former- fabrics ; are, given more. attentioi
in ?ihe finer shops than, percales are. Th<
figures arev neat geometricals in black
dark bluevjreds or lavender; stripes ar?
alsb:v displayed. They are narrow ant
widely 'spaced.
^Pleated colored shirts will figure quit<
prommentlyfdr?wear with business 1 suits
The plain neglige with a centre pleat abc
made of madras br of fine flannels wil
also be.;worn. 'The-flannels are d?sign?e
for neglige and come In - rather neal
stripes. ?
In collars the three new styles'.are the
-wing, poke and straight stander. Thes?
are iri:J>oth; wideband narrow stitching. The
"wid?"st?tched"wtng collar is not as'sightly
as that with .narrow stitching, owing tc
the liability/of the edg?i where the wing
bends, to swell and. gap. The wing collars
have .well .balanced, moderate spaced
;wingsV the bottom of the wings forming a
straight line.-' V
.In crav'ats.v?l? o?.the forms are large.
The culrosses -will be very broad and soft,
the ascots .wide of end and free of lining.
The' best fbur-hvhand will have a wide
end'and'be. graduated to, a two-inch width
at. the knot . Ties, if sold at all, will be
of. the. bab>wihg>shape. For evening wear
there is a 'new tie. It is .cut perfectly
straight - and - bas square ends. It is of
uniform - width . throughout. Wien tled.it
shows a square,; flat .centrepiece and the
en?si stand out .straight and come to the
edge of the shirt bosom.. .
- In clothes'i I find indications which point
to the' usual "fight of .the tailors to force
new fashions.. In the , first place, ' we will
have the annual, cry for color, in evening
dress and for .the freedom from blacks
arid whites ul day dress. All of this I. do
not think will amount to much. The best
tailors are making trousers rather wide,
but avoiding, the peg-top form. The trous?
ers are "about seventeen?,.--and one-half
inches at the knee and &?teen and one
half: at. the .bottoms.- They will hang per?
fectly ,strjdght from the hips. For even?
ing dress ;the white waistcoat will be" given
a very prominent place. ' These will be
made both single and double-breasted and
will .have ^buttons covered with the mate?
rial of which/; the waistcoat is made. In
evening dress coats there will be no change
worth recording. That garment is a
staple" fixture-and it seems impossible to
improve' upon the existing standard. The
fr?ck coat will be. practically?- the same
as last y?af.'..
The e-*ening Jacket will not be made at
all by smart tailors. It Is now a ready
made,' ".Cheap John" article, and may be
banished entirely from the. wardrobe of a
gentleman.: A. new coat something like the
evening jacket will be made. It will have
a breast -arid side pockets and silk-faced
shawl collar and will close with two but?
tons. These coats are designed for home
and club wear and are worn with single-,
breasted waistcoats and trousers of the
same material, white shirts, black ties and
either lace or button shoes. They're just
handy dress coats to wear down to dinner
or to hang around the house or club In.
One of the best tailors on the avenue
will introduce several novelties this com?
ing, autumn. One of these is an evening
suit made of dark gr?y cloth. The collar
is of the shawl pattern, faced with gray
silk. The trousers and waistcoat are made
of the. same material as the coat. The
suits are designed for wear at stag affairs,1
about hotels and clubs and for the theatre
when women are not to be in the party.
Another new idea is a house suit. It will
bc made of a heavy rep sifk and lined
with silk. The colors are very brilliant.
The trousers are made like pajama trous?
ers and fasten about the waist with a
broad bit of ribbon, with large silk tassels
at the ends. The coat is cut double-breast?
ed and has large pockets. The suit may
be worn with a silk shirt. It Is just for
wear In one's room.
In overcoats the long Chesterfields and
the skirted coats will be very popular. The
skirted coat will be worn in the evening
as well as during the day. These are cut
like the "Paddock" and have well flared
skirts. The "Raglan" will only be in rain?
proofs and in coverts. The covert coat
will be very popular. It will be cut full
and quite short.
Sack suits will be made on lines that,
R'hile conforming to the lines of the body,
io not .accentuate them. The military
iacket is passe. The new jackets will be
loose and will have perfectly straight
In shoes the principal departure is in the
?hape of the toe. The latest model snows
:he flat last with the outswung sole, but
the tip is brought in to a much narrower
point than last year's model. Low shoes
Rill be worrrdurins; the autumn and on
pleasant days during the winter, but many
ook upon the low shoe as a mere winter
"ad. The patent leather shoes with kid
:ops will be the formal footwear. Shoes
alli be very plain for dress, and quite
?laborately trimmed for neglige and busl
iess wear..

greatly added-to^with. - only-the advantag
of emphasizing the. point. That .which ha
the most pronounced is; however, the tun?
ing of the tide. Thirty years ago, and eve
well ohto very recent years; the America:
student ?of any kind of science found it ;
part , of his education to go to the school
abroad for as long a period as his pocket
book could stand.**' His* education was. no

creasing numbers, _young Europeans ar<
coming over here" to grasp,; the traininj
that our 'universities are giving and t<
absorb the technique .and the thorough
practicalness that ; are- making America!
scientists masters Cf men.
"Adapted" wasythe word Prof Menden?
hall used in speaking of .European meth?
ods and the American universit?s, "rathei
than adopted." . But it has been very muci
more than that Brushing traditions aside
these institutions .of learning went long
ago to the root pf the matter. Tear by
year they have been building. up their
equipment, strengthening their courses.
Questions of finance and whether it would
all pay they have politely laughed at.
Money was needed for this and for that.
Well, the chiefs would see that L was ob?
tained. Machinery was necessary. At
once the great manufacturers were laid
.under contribution,- and they sent as gifts
machines worth thousands.
The technical sctibol, - presidents knew
how to arouse - the sympathetic under?
standing of men Pf means and fore?
thought. Benefactors for this and for that
crowded in, their gifts were chronicled in
the news of the day, commented upon as
vast, the figures added up and admired.
But no one saw the significance.
Year after year students came out of
courses of engineering, of medicine and
surgery, of chemistry, pf electricity, of
marine engineering, of agriculture and
forestry and went into workaday life.
Hitherto the scientific' college man had
not been held in very high regard. Manu?
facturers had wanted men who had grown
up In shops, "practical" they called them,
no "book learning fellows, who ?were all
theory and clean clothes and hands." But
even the most old fashioned soon came to
appreciate that these "fellows," too, came
from "shops," "shops" in the colleges that
had a wider variety of machinery in act?
ual use than could ever be found in a
single factory. They grew to see that the
new "theory man" was broader, of more
intelligence, willing to learn about a case
in point and able to grasp ic more quickly.
They devised economies and improvement
whenever they were given a chance. They
could make one man do the work of two.
The old time foreman was a child before
Then, one after another, the far seeing
manufacturers chuckled. They had
bridged .the gulf between capital and labor
and found real master workmen. They
gave these men more swing and power
and kept on the lookout for more youths
from the technical schools. They came to
see that the product from these institu?
tions was getting better every year.
Thc' technical schools and universities
had won their point. They realized the
growing demand for their men. They Ve"
doubled their efforts, added to their
courses, consulted with the greatest and
' the most progressive manufacturers as to
what, their needs, were and built up more:
perfectly their equipment.. Not alone did
they reach out for machinery, but the
newest and the best. They had at last
created a new market for m?n.
If a concrete, striking instance is wanted
of this, Sibley College or Cornell . Universi?
ty m;ay be taken. That institution has a
very famous railroad course. The "orders"
that come to the college each spring for
graduates are. greater than Sibley can
possibly supply. 'She cannot turn out
enough men to meet the demand- Twice,
as many as she graduates each year cb^ld
be assured of positions. For the railroads
I say simply: "These are the men we';w?st;
they are the men that will rise with .us
or with some other company. We can?
not now get too many of them."
And so the demand is spreading out in
j many another branch cf science." _The
American technical schools are' turning out
the product. It is these men that in later
years do the inventing- and the great
pieces of executive: work' and make the
discoveries. Is it any wonder that the
youth of England and the Continent are
commencing to come to this country for
technical training?
Why lie Lived and Died on a Stupendous j
Cliff, Within Sight and Sound of the I
Ocean. ; I
There is one feature of Cape Malea that
rarely fails to attract the notice- of the j
most careless voyager doubling, it by
day, a touch of human tragedy and
pathos, belonging in point of chronology
to our own time, but in universal inter?
est to all ages. At the extreme pitch of
the cape a stupendous cliff rises. sheer,
from 'the fretting, waves for about a hun?
dred feet Then - comes an irregular
plateau or shelf, of perhaps two. acres
in area, the mountain rising again
abruptly behind it to a height of about
i 2,000 feet. This plateau is apparently in
I-accessible, and yet, perched upon, a huge
I bowlder in its centre, a mass of rock de?
tached from the mountain ages ago, is
a house. It is. rudely built of . wooden
fragments ingeniously fitted together,
, but its outlines, convey at once the idea
of its designer: having .been an Anglo
Saxon. It must .be firmly built, too, fdr
Lit is" exposed to the f?ll fury of wind,re
. bounding from the mountain face, and
-the observer instinctively wonders ; why,
if a house, must be built on that shelf,
so terribly exposed a position was se?
lected. Then if he be fortunate- he will
hear its story, says E. T. Bullen,-.in the
London. Spectator. WB??K??^^-'^'
About twenty-five years ago there was
a young sailor who, by dint of hard, work,
integrity of'character and firmness of
will, reached at. the age of .2$ the: summit '
of his ambition-becoming master of what
would then be called a igood-siied. steam?
ship, some 900 tons register. Upon this
accession to good fortune he married, the
girl of his choice, who had patiently,
waited for him since as boy.. and" girl
-sweethearts they parted on his first going
to sea. And with rare complacency. his.
owners gave him the inestimable privilege'
of carrying his young bride to sea with:
him. Pow happy he was! How deep ands
all embracing his pride, as, steaming
down the grimy Thames? he explained to
the light of his eyes . all the. wonders;
that she was now witnessing for the first
time, but which he had made familiar to
her mind "by his oft-repeated sea stories
during the few bright days -,. between'"'
voyages that he. had been able to '? devote
to courtship! The ship was hound ito>
several Mediterranean ports, the time, be?
ing late autumn, and" consequently the
most ideal -.season for a.honymoon" that
could possibly be imagined. Cadiz,"-Genoa,
Naples,^ Venice, a delightful tour, with not
one weary moment wherein to . wish : for
something else! Even a flying, "visit to
old ?tome from Naples had been'.possibl?;
for . the. two officers, rejoicing in their ?
happy- young- skipper's joy, saw to it that
no unnecessary cares should trouble him,*
and bore willing testimony, in order , that
he should get as much delight out of
those halcyon days as possible, that the.
entire crew were as docile as. could be
wished, devoted to their bright command- 1
er and his beautiful wife.
Then at Venice came orders to proceed
to Galatz and load wheat. for '.. home.
Great was: the glee of the girl-wife. She
would see Constantinople and the Dan- :
ube. Life would'hardly be long enough
to recount all the wonders of this most
wonderful of wedding trips. And they
sailed, with hearts overbrimming with
joy as the blue sky above them- seemed
welling over with sunlight. Wind and
weather favored them; nothing occurred
to cast a shadow over their happiness
until, nearing Cape Malea at 'that fatal
hour of the morning, just before dawn? -
when more collisions occur than at ?any
other time, they were run into by a
blundering ' Greek steamer coming- the
other way, and cut down amidships to.
the water's edge. To their peaceful sleep
or quiet appreciation of the night's sil?
vern-splendors succeeded the overwhelm?
ing . flood,' the hiss and roar of escaping
steam, the suffocating.embrace of death;
Tn that . dread fight for life. all perished
but one-he so lately the happiest, of
men-the skipper. Instinctively, clinging
to a piece of wreckage, he - had been
washed ashore under Ca^ - Malea at the
ebbing of the scanty tide, ? id his strong
physique, reasserting ?ts?"?f, enabled him
to climb those rugged battlements' and
reach the plateau. Here * 9 .^as found
gazing seaward by some go?-.:-eru-, who,
in search of their nimble-fc. rZ flocks?
had wandered down the precipita "s side
of the mountain. They endeavored to
persuade him to come with them back
to the world, but in vain. He would iive,
gratefully accepting some of their poor
provision, but from that watching place
he would not go. And those rude peas?
ants, understanding' something of his
woe, sympathized with him so deeply
that without payment or hope of any
they helped him to build his hut and
kept him supplied with such -poor mor?
sels of food and drink as sufficed for his
stunted needs.
And there, with his gaze fixed during
all his waking hours upon that inscru?
table depth wherein all his bright hopes
had suddenly been quenched, he lived
untii quite recent years, ".the world for?
getting, by the'world forgot,"- a living
monument of constancy and patient, un?
complaining grief. By his humble friends,
whose language he never learned, he was
regarded as a saint, and when one day
they came upon his lifeless body,' fallen
forward upon its knees at a little glazed
window through which he was wont to
look upon the sea where his dear one lay,
they felt confirmed in their opinion of the
sanctity of the hermit of Cape Malea.
To be Utilized as nn Asylum for

tucky, on the same farm where Abraham
Lincoln was 'born and spent his boyhood'
days, says the ^Chicago Tribune, the St
Luke's Society, of Chicago, is to estab?
lish a home for the inebriates of -the South.
A large hotel, small cottages and com?
modious dwellings will be erected by the
soci?ty, and, though the land is in the
South, the negro will be made as welcome
as the white.
The Lincoln farm is in the town of
Hodgenville, fifty miles south of Louis?
ville, and consists of 110 acres of pasture
land. On lt is a spring of mineral water,
the fame of whSch is great below the
Mason and Dixon line. It was owned by
some prominent Methodists of ?the South,
among them the Rev J. W. Bingham.
Some time ago its owners decided to do?
nate its use to charity, and they chose
the St Luke's Society as the organization
best su3ted to carry out their plans.
The farm will be turned into a sanita?
rium, planned much after that now run
by the society at Nbs 1.710 to 1.71S Indiana
avenue. On it will 'be taken only those who
are addicted ro drugs, liquors or tobacco.
The ireatmenit is to be similar to that
given at the Chicago Hospital.
While the officers of the society are busv
trying to get the Lincoln farm in shape,
they are also at work establishing a branch
within the 'Cook County jail. There prison?
ers known to be victims of the drug, li?
quor or tobacco habit are given over to
Dr Miller and his assistant. Dr La Grange.
The latter devotes all his time to them
and lives in the same quarters with them. 1

For a time, then, the heart was safe a

placed' in a fine gold filigree box, whia
had belonged to John Napier, the inven
tor' bf logarithms; and. the box in its tun
i:was. deposited to a silver urn.
Before very long,, however, Lady Naple
dispatched the casket by some faithfu
. hand to the young Marquis of Montrose
? who, .with Lord. Napier and. others of th?
connection, was still living in exile in Hoi
land, and here begins the first part of it:
adventures, of which, unfortunately, n<
record now* remains. ^^^yttnBHB|
For many years the heart was complete,
ly lost sight of, and any hope of ever re?
gaining it had long been given up, when ?
friend of the Napier family recognized th?
gold filigree box' enclosing; the steel cast
among a collection of curiosities to Hol?
land: He purchased the relic at once 'and
returned it to Merehiston, ? at that timi
the property of Francis, the fifth Lord
Napier. There for a second time the heart
reposed, but not for long. On the dea ti
of the fifth Lord Napier it passed toto the
keeping of his only surviving daughter,
Hester, afterward Mrs Johnston.
Some years after her marriage Mrs John?
ston was on a voyage to India with her
husband, her little, son, and all their
household goods, when their ship, which
formed part of the fleet under Commodore
Johnston, was attacked by a French
frigate, and a stiff fight ensued. Mr John?
ston busied himself with four of the guns
upon the quarter deck, while his wife, who
had refused to go below, remained beside
him, a heroically obstinate figure, holding
by the one hand her little boy, and in the
other a thick velvet reticule, into which
she .had hurriedly crammed all the things
she valued most, including, of course, the
heart. \ln the middle of the fight a splin?
ter struck Mrs Johnston on the arm,
wounding her severely. The velvet reti?
cule gave little protection-to its precious
contents, and the gold filigree box was
completely shattered, but the inner steel
case remained unharmed. It must have
been some consolation to Mrs Johnston
that, when the attacking frigate retired;
the English commodore left the flag ship
and came on board the Indianman to offer
his thanks and congratulations to the lady
and her husband, who had set the crew
so gallant an example.
Arrived in India, it was easy to find a
clever goldsmith, who constructed another
gold filigree box in place of the one broken,
also a silver urn like the original. On the
outside of the urn was engraved in two
native dialects a short account of Mon?
trose's life and death. The urn soon came
to be regarded by the natives as something
uncanny, and the report spread that it was
a talisman, and that its owner would
never be wounded or taken prisoner in bat?
tle. So one is. not surprised to learn that
before long the urn and its contents were
stolen, and in spite of every effort could
not be traced. Mrs Johnston, however,
discovered after some time that it had
been sold for a large sum of money to a
powerful chief in the neighborhood of Ma?
dura. ;
