Globe-Democrat of St. Louis says:
Tt.e longiug to make home beautiful is

bru.sh, and tell one color from another, can
produce them. Beautiful sprays and clus
ters of flowers suitable for the ball dress,
the coiffure, or the bonnet, may be made of
paper, and also clusters for filling jardi
nieres, hanging baskets, etc.
But besidt>> there are paper flowers which
can be made for deco rating the room, and
these can be larger, fuller and less elaborate
than if destined to be worn or used in place
of real flowers. Roses, sunflowers, poppies
and the larger flowers are generally most
effective in pa;>er, although such tiae flowors
as lilacs ami sweet peas can he well done.
The snowball W a favorite, it being pleasing
and effective in every place. Of mammoth

clusters to hang from c'.iaudel ors, to fill one

The sunflower lamp-shade is made in very
much the same way, except that the center
is different, being made of strips of brown
paper one and a half, inches wide, cut into a
half-incli fringe of fine threads on one edge,
and made into a rosette by gathering the
outer edge on a fine thread and sewing it to
a circle of paper. The center it then curled

then pinned to the center of the sunflower.
A silvered or brass hook or wire is inserted
at the back of the sunflower, and it then is
ready to bang npon the lamp-shade.
The rose lamp-shade, made of rose-col

and tie with a thread, or twist a wire around.
Wax "cults" and green calyxes may be

The cluster of lilacs is also a beautiful
vase decoration, and the flowers are easy to
make, for these two shades of lilac pap r
are needed, from which cut a number of
pieces like the two patterns given, the
smaller of the darker paper, and the larger
of the lighter, always of the folded paper,
so that the flowers may be made of two
tnicknesses of paper. After they are cut,
the petals can be moldei by the head
of a round-headed shawl-pin, and

IMFKOVED IS LOOKS.
Bow Henry M. Stanley Appears Sine*
B» Slnrrlrd I>nrotby TcmiMir.
Mr. Stanley has Improved wonderfully Id
appearance since his niarringe. I assmno
that tlie improvement is due to his marriage
and the companionship of a remarkably
sprightly and attractive woman, for it is
certain that the great explorer's last trip to
Africa was not calculated to restore his
youth, If tlio stories of outrage, misery, pri
vation and trouble which have been told by
all the survivors are true. Before Mr. Stan
ley went to Africa on his present trip he
had fallen into a condition where he ap
parently pined for the dark continent, lie
was heavy, lethargic and taciturn.
He com* s back to America with
the amiability of a finished niau of the world
and an appearance of entire aud complacent
happmess. He has grown rather stout, but
there is now a faint liuge of color in his
cheeks and his eyes are as bright as those of
a sixteen-year-old gir!. In manner he is the
Stanley of old. I doubt if there ever lived a
more thoroughly earnest man than the
greatest of African explorers. He smiles
at pleasantry, but nevtr makes a jest. The
work of his life is the only thing that really
interests him, and he dues not make the
slightest statement about African matters
without careluliy weighing his words.
Wbfß Major B.irttelct's brother made his
extraordinary atlnck on Stanley, people
who knew the explorer well felt a certain
amount of surprise at the temerity exhib
ited by Stanley's astailaut. It lias been
proved by a great many years' experience
that it is not well to make loose allegations
against Stanley's work in Africa, ami if his
years of toil have proved anything they
hnvß proved him to be a man of unde
viatiun exactness and care in all his
personal relations and of elaborate
accuracy in everything which lie
writes. That lie is dictatorial, and.
In one sense, domineering with his subordi
nates, is no news. He appropriates all the
fame of his trips, and perhaps he is not far
wrong either, for, when all is said and done,
only one man has come to the surface out of
a good many millions who has shown his
ability to overcome all of the physical and
moral obstacles offered in Africa and
achieve a success which is as indisputable as
It is unique. Stanley's arraignment of Uart
telot will be severely criticized and the de
nials will bo numerous, but there is do go
ing behind the calm and terrible array of
facts which the explorer has made known to
the public within the past two days.—

Oft hare I gazed In wonder
At the rude but stately pile
Of Dolores, fast decaying
'Keath its somber, rustic tile.
This tiualnt adobe structure,
■With its arched door aud bell,
If these alone could utter
What storied verse they'd tell
Of the days when bold vaquero
Filled the air with shuut and song,
As through the fertile field and pasture
Th.y drove their herds along:
Aud of the days, now far removed
Along Time's Irngtheni-d way.
"When the rustic native heard its chime,
And hastened there to pray.
As we pass Its -.rmi portal
A distant taper greets the eye.
Like a lonely star In heaven
When the sun has left the sky.
Dim light from small, high windows
Shrouds lc gioum the outlines where
Etood the rude-constructed altar,
Where were i.fft'red mass and prayer.
But now, alas, no chime we hear.
No choir of voices sweet,
Whose uuslc, wafted heavenward.
In unison to meet.
And now arouurt its crumbling form
The green-leafed ivy creeps.
While 'neath tbe shadow of its walls,
In peace, the padre sleeps.

And in the reading of their every Hue

Wore on to ulght.
And In the dreams that come to strep

Amid the ralu
That fell so silently on bud and bloom—
The tears of night—
While 'mid he grand aud holy gloom,
Like ray of light.

O aching heart, that doth conceal
A world of love, so warm and pure.
Take courage now, thy grlers reveal—

Oh. speak thy thoughts— be not afraid—
And soon thy | am shall be allayed.
What Is there that thou shouhlst not dare
When ptonptad by a love so strong T
Come, he not bashful, but ilecl ire
The secret thou hast held so long.
Dost tumk that the will dare reprove
Toy boldness when tbou dost route ?

The darling to reciprocate.

THE ART OF
A Woll-KnowM Artist Talks About
the Amateur Craze.
Tom ag for a Picture— Why Actress s Prove
the Best Subjects— The Operator's Bag
b ar— Preserving Negatives.
"If not too leading a Question," said a
representative of The Call to Louis Thors,
the well-known photographic artist, while in
his elegant studio a few days since, "I should
like to know what has been the effect of
amateur photography on the regular pro
"Well," said the gentleman, "the ama
teur craze lias helped us. You see, ama
teurs cannot manage the lights. In the
first place they do not know how, and In the
second they have not tlie appliances to
work the lights. Now, the lights and their
corresponding shadows have a wonderful
Influence on the result. By manipulating
them I can alter the shape of the nose,
change the relative proportion of the feat
ure 5 , transform the whole expression of the
face. Tuen it takes an eye lr:iiui-d by long
practice and a vivid Imagination to make a
good photographer. It is easy enough for
the amateur to pick out a pretty scene, and,
with the aid of a 'snap-shot,' capture it;
but let him try to compose groups,
then he will be^in on the art itself.
Now, when you consider that the photog
rapher has for his subject just one individ
ual, with neither background uor landscape
to druw ( ft the attention even the least lit
tle bit from the main figure, see h«w his
work is increased. The trouble with most
subjects is tliat they do not want too strik
ing a picture. Absolute fidelity to uaturo
is condemned. They want to make a pretty
picture, and who can blame them? In a
very short time one changes enough not to
clcscly resemble a photograph, and why not
be able to say, ' I used to look iiko that a
few years ago,' when the picture is a pretty
one, th in to have to say it of any ugly one
to which the likeness would not ba one bit
more striking alter a Itpse of time?
"But to return to the mnateur. He fails
to make a satisfactory likeness of his sub
ject, and yet oy the tiuie lie lms made a
number of experiments his subject, if a
lady, begins to feel as if she would like a
good picture of l.erself. So, in disgust with
the amateur's attempts, she gees to a first
class photographer I'ud baa a professional
take hi-r incline. The result Is very differ
ent, of couise. Here, just step iutn my ep
eruUDK-rooui. l>u you see all those differ
ent tints and shades ami screens and ..,.■■■.
giouuds? All there are absolutely neces
sary as part of a photographer*! stock in
trade. Ho most have them. C'au the ama
teur do without them? lie cannot. He
biniply fails. Then comes the liuishing of
the pictures. 1 know that i-ome amateurs
do all their own printing and toning. Well,
if the result satisfies them, all right. I only
knuiv that ii 1 or any other prolessonal
should offer them such prints they would be
highly indignant. So you sre tlm amateur
may really be called our best advertisers.
Is your question answered?
"Are those negatives?" asked the re
porter, pointing to rows upon rows of large
squares of blown paper carefully standing
one against the other in lettered compait
" Yes," replied Mr. Thors, "and perhats
you did not imagine that we kept them so
carelully protected; but unless each nega
tive is &o put away, its delicate surface is
apt to be marred ; why even a sjieck of dust
may spoil a picture. Ye?, these are my
stage properties, waving palms aud uornier
wiudows, and latticed loopholes, plaster
vai-es, mantels and pieces of lurmture."
" W hat do 1 consider the most important
pnrt if taking a lady's picture? Weil, if 1
may speak ujou the subject, it is as how to
dress. It has been my one aim to spread
the impression that the effectiveness of a
picture is produced by the plainneis ana
simplicity of the dress; that the lines must
L.c kept clear; that too much ornamenta
tion is fatal to a good effect As a general
thins, Ido not like the tuU-lengtti picture
as well as a head and bust, ulncli is really
the most pleasing, blender women— and
those alone— can afford to indulge ttieir
fancy for beiDic ph tographed in black."
STOUT WOMBS IX BLACK.
"Why. do not ttout women, look smaller
In black '"'
"In rial life, ye?, but not on paper," was
the reply, "for black absorbs light aiid be
comes one fiat black surlace, while, on the
contrary, a light dreas si.ows iiylits and
shadow.-, thru breaking up the flat surface,
aud-iti doing limit leads the eye to soe a
smaller aiea. i i ,. you get the idea?
" 1 supi om it is hardly necessary f«r me to
say that it is a mistake fol ladies, unless
they intend to have their pictures hi fancy
dress costumes, to have their bait dressed iv
s; me new and elaborate way fur their pict
ure. The result is never as satisfying as it
would have been had tlwy adhered to their
ibu .i way.
" You iisk," continued Mr. Thors, "which
is the liaraest class ot subjects to photo
graph. How, that's hardly a t air question,
but if 1 must answer it 1 will say that brides
aie what every photographer dreads more
or less. The result is almost sure tv be
"Another thing," added the speaker, "ac
tresses always make the beat' pictures. So
many ladies want to be photographed In this
or iv thai actiess' puse. Now, the rca<on
that the actresses make such good pictures
is that it is purely a matter of business with
them; no talse delicacy enters into tlieop
eration. They vie accustomed tv pose, and
they arc in the habit of obeying the direc
tions of the stage manager. Consequently
they bring more 'pose' intelligence to bear
than the other can possibly do. Another rea
son why they are so much belter is that tho
photographer always has the subject alone,
and the actoror actress think of nothing but
the picture to be taken. But iv the case of
a briilo all her friends and relatives are
there, and she Is tliiuking of them, and of
bow she must look to them as the artist is
trying to pose her. Ho turns her by the chin
aud her eyes seek out some one of the group.
Now. you know that the slightest variation
is fatal. I succeed in getting the body in n
pood pose, when seme one exclaim*, 'Oh,
Mnmie. your dress is turned up in front!'
and down beuds the lady to ttraighten out
her dress. All that posiue lost, simply be
cause her mind was diverted from the i o-n;
and in her desire to have the dress take well
she could not wait until I straightened it out
lor Hit, as it was my business to do. But
with the actress all that is avoided. And
you have no idea how quickly ttiey will pose.
Why, one Saturday after her matinee Mrs.
James Brown I'uttrr sprang into acouue and
came up here. In fifty-live miuutes 1 tooic
twenty-two views of her, and not the same
positions either. It was only ao actress who
couid he capable of tbat.
•'Another thing that makes pictures of
actresses so good, they are generally iv
diameter. 1 have made it a rule never to
photograph a professional in diaracteruntil
1 have seen the play, noted the situations
and the expressions. Tbat is the only
artistic way to get a good dramatic photo.
Otherwise the result will be merely mechan
ical. An actress in a ball dress will never
make ns striking a picture as she would iv a
character costume, for with the ball dress
sho has no particular expression to suit the
part. All she has to do is to look pretty.
And ns yuu know sometimes the most strid
ing pictures are nut simply of a pretty
woman. It is as the photograph recalls the
scene and the action to the beholder that an
actress' plioto is considered a success."
" Is it true that professionals make up for
their photographs? Not at all; they use
hardly anything, because if they did, they
would look liko chrotuos. Don't you know
that the camera is the very thing to detect
all such attempts at make-up? Why do
they make up on thestnge? To heighten
the effect they wish to produce, because all
lines are made fainter by the distance
through which they are viewed. But when
the actresses aro before the camera, they
prefer to be taken with their own counte
nance, modi lied, of course, by whatever
facial expression they choose to give it. As
for the retouching, it is only a v.*rv little
that we can do to their negatives; not niuch
more than we do to those of ordinary
HE PRESSED THE BUTTON.
A Photographic Story Tuld of Baron Al
The fact that Bftron Albert Rothschild
wields the camera has just becou.e known
to the continental public through an umus
ing iucident of his latu summer travels in
Nortn Italy, says the Chicago Herald. He
was out early one August morniug in his
knickerbockers and pith helmet and with
the familiar little black case swung from
his shoulder. Just as he was preparing to
take a picture of a winding mountain path
before him a fat Berliner and his wife
dropped from a sideway iuto the perspec
"Ah, Mr. Photographer," shouted the
Berliuer in Prussian dialect "you are just
the man we are looking for. We wish our
portraits with this colossal background.
Do us a good job nnd theie will be something
extra in it for you."
The baron, in embarrassment, explained
that he was a landscape photographer and
knew little about doing yortraits. The Ber
liner protested against this bit of modesty,
pressed a half-crown into the baron's hand
to reassure him, and then, bowing his head
and possessing himself of his wife's arm, in
German photographic fashion, tin presented
his expansive front for the taking of the
picture. Tne baron pressed the button
several times, took the Jierlincr's home ad
dress, and with repeated promises to do a
"good job" in reiurn for liberal pay,
C. p. 1 »., went on his way.
The Berliner «nd his wife went back to
Berlin without having heard from him.
They were just about giving up all idea of
ever learning of what had become of their
photographer and their half-crown, when a
dozen cabinet photographs came in a pack
age postmarked Vienna. On the bit of oth
erwise blank pasteboard just below each pic
ture was the lieavv signature in proper pho
tographic style, "Kothschild." In an ac
companying note "Baron Albert Rothschild
hoped that his work would bo satisfactory,
and regretted that a pressure of busiuess
had prevented him from delivering the pic

"For improvement of the figure," she said,
"there is nothing so good as swimming. The
muscles about tin- shoulders nud chest and
buck are all exrrcised — the arms and the
hips and krees. Rowing fills ont the arms,
but it is hnrd ou the hands. Dumb-bells ami
Indian clubs are likely to make one rather
muscular above tlio elbow. Of sll thing swim

morning above the waist In hot water, rins
ing in ci'ld water, and drying briskly will
keep the skin hard and white, and cultivate
the pretiy blue veins that are ready to show
about the shoulders nnd neck. The hot
water clears the skin's uores, the cold shuts
them up and mnkes the texture firm and
elastic, and the rubbing sets the blood In
