The fortifications of Sevastapol, which
enuned the allies so much trouble during
the six months' defense of the fortress
by the Russians, were at first very
weak, and military experts say the town
might have been taken by a vigorous
bombardment and assault during the
first few days of the siege. The igno
rance of the allied generals in regard to
the strength of the works caused a delay
which the Russians improved by making
the defenses almost impregnable.

HAS THE UMBRELLA FAD.
Chicago Man Who Carries It to Greater
Kxtremes Thau Most l'eople.
There is a man on the North Side,
who hits the umbrelhi fad. It would
hardly bo fair to ti 11 his 11:11:10, ns it
wux learned in coiiftY.euco, and tlw fad
might not bo regarded ns a mere eccen
tricity by some jicople who have Buffer
ed from it uud t!iey might be tempted
to complain to the iwlice. A .:ain, every
body who litis lost 1111 umbrella and
that means a majority of the jM-ople of
Chicago would look up Lis address in
the directory and fwcc p down upon him
with tho hope that his lost property
might be in his collection.
Thenj are other r.ira who have a
weakness for taking umbrellas, bt.t no
man is known to have carried it to so
great an extreme as this one. Ha has a
collection numbering 400 umbiellasof
all kinds. A good many of them wore
bought. Some of them were borrowed
from friends, with and without their
permission, and others were acquired in
other ways which it would be hardly
polite to mention. The man is a good
citizen in other respects, but he is a vic
tim of the umbrella habit, and when he
sees an umbrella lie is compelled to
struggle very hard to resist the tempta
tion to make himself its owner. Usual
ly he yields to the temptation, and tho
coveted prize is transferred to his col
lection. The umbrella collector docs not make
any great display of his collection. The
umbrellas are piled up in a big closet in
his bedroom, and ho very seldom visits
it. Now and then he looks over them
and counts them with satisfaction. The
hwt time he counted them there were
39S in the closet. He has added a few
to his collection since that time.
In every other way except this pas
sion for umbrellas, which amounts to a
mania, the man is porfwtly sane. His
friends regard him as a very clever
man, and ho holds a responsible posi
tion in a big wholesale house down
town. But umbrellas are his weakness.
He is a victim of the umbrella habit
just ns another man might bo a victim
of the opium habit or morphine habit,

that the habit n;;;y some day get him

HE HAD A CLOSE CALL.
Major lirneral Milei'Thrilllng Encounter
With Lame Deer.
Probably the closest call General
Miles ever had in all his experience as
an Indian fighter was that in his en
counter with Lame Deer. It wits in
1877, when he was still a colonel, dur
ing his campaign against the Sioux and
other hostile trilx-s iu the northwest.
Lame Deer and his outlaws had been
making trouble in Dakota, and Colonel
Miles raided their village. He tells the
rest of tho story in his personal rocollec
"In the surprise and excitement of
the wild onset of the charge a group of
warriors was forced away from the rest.
Before making the attack I had ordered
our Sioux and Cheyenne Indians to call
out to the Lame Doer Indians that if
they threw down their arms and sur
rendered we would spare their lives. As
we galloped up to this group of warrior
they apparently recognized the purport
of the demand and dropped their arms
on the ground. In order to assure them
of our good will I called out, "How
how-kola" (meaning friend), and ex
tendd my hand to the chief, Lame Deer,
which he grasped, and in a few seconds
more I would have socured him and the
others, as, although he was wild and
trembling with excitement, my adju
tant, George W. Baird, was doing the
game with the head warrior, Iron Star.
"Unfortunately just at that time one
of our white couts rode up and joined
the group of officers and soldiers with
me. He had more enthusiasm, than dis-
New York, Builim. Phllndrlpbla.
cretion and, I presume, desired to insure
my safety, as he drew up his rifle and
covered the Indian with it. Lame Deer
saw this and evidently thought the
young scout was going to shoot him. I
know of no other motive for his subse
quent act than the belief that ho was to
be killed whether he surrendered or not.
As quick as thought, with one des
perate, ittwerful effort, he wrenched his
hand from mine, although I tried to
hold it, and grasped his rifle from the
ground, ran backward a few steps, rais
ed his rifle lo his eye and fired. Seeing
his determined face, his get jaw, wild
eye and the open muzzle of his rifle, I
realized my danger and instantly whirl
ed my horse from him, and in this quick
movement the horse slightly settled back
upon his haunches. At that moment the
rifle flashed within ten feet of me, tho
bullet whizzed past my breast, leaving
me unharmed, but unfortunately killing
a brave soldier near my side. "
Naturally the whole scattered band
of Indians was instantly wiied out by a
close and deadly lire from tho soldiers.
The incident is typical of tho whole
series of Indian campaigns in which
General Miles figured in the last quarter
of a century. The desire to treat tho
redskins as fellow men, constantly
thwarted by the natural suspicions of
the savages themselves, is apparent all
through the Iwk.
ORIGIN OF "RESTAURANT."
An Interesting Philological Fact From
The French author, Maurice Cabs, re
cently published in La Repnbliquo
Francaise an essay about the restaurants
uud eating horns of Paris, relating
many interesting details. His story of
how the term "restaurant" was first
used is well worth repeating. For a long
time inns and eating houses in France
were only intended for tho benefit of
traveling people, for the people took
their meals at home, and restaurants
were unknown. The first enterprise of
the kind was founded in Paris in 1765.
A citizen by the name of Boulanger
opened in the Rue desPoulies an euting
house where soup, meat, fowl and eggs
were Berved. A chronicler relates that
meals were served there on small, round,
marble tables, and everything was scru
Over the entry to this first eating
house the proprietor had hung a sign,
upon which were the Latin words, "Ve-
uite ad me omnes quas stomacho labora
tis, et ego restaurabo vos" (Come unto
me all ye whose stomachs need attention,
and I will restore them). This is a par
ody on the well known Biblical quota
tion, "Come unto me all ye M ho labor
and are heavy laden, and I will give you
rest," only in place of labor and heavy
laden he said, "whose stomachs need at
tention." The word "restaurabo," from
the Latin "restaurare" (restore or re
fresh), was the main characteristic of the
new establishment and gave it its name.
Boulanger amassed a largo fortune, for
his enterprise proved eminently success
ful, but ho was soon imituted, some of
his imitators becoming more famous
than he, like Borei, ut whose place 120
years ago meals could be had for 150
francs ($30) per cover.
The Well Dre.ned Man.
There is n certain professor in a cer
tain university of the United States who
once, at tbe beginning of one of his lec
tures on fine arts, got ou the subject of
the kind of pins worn in the neckties of
young college men. He was a good lec
turer and was always interesting, but
this lecture was tbe most interesting of
his course to the 800 boys who heard
him, and the whole hour was upent on
necktie pins, their uso and misuse and
what they suggested. Tbe gist of what
he said was that there was uo more
reason why a boy should wear a horse
shoe with a whip across it all in gold
than that houses should have sieves for
roofs, and that ns it was extremely
foolish to put a big sieve on your house
for a roof so it was quite as foolish to
wear horseshoes on your neckties. The
principle of this is that you should have
a reason in what you wear as well as in
other things and that senseless decora
tions, like horseshoes on neckties or
neckties on horaeahooa, are silly and un
becoming to a self respecting person.
This particular example was only one
to illustrate a principle, which is that
nothing unusual, queer, out of the or
dinary, is in itself a good thing that,
in fact, most things tbat are queer and
out of the ordinary are likely, in the
question cf dress, to be in bad taste. A
man's dress ought to be quiet, but it
must be clean and well taken care of in
