part of the session he wains about the bouso
with his hands in Ills pocket , stooping now

j little rooms up near the attic , and ho worked
away nt his desk against the wall nnd undur
n , gas-Jet. The only plcturu In the room was
n : print of Abraham Lincoln , whom Ucod
ndmircd j greatly You never found him
lonllng ' nbout the hotel , nnd ho has spent tbo

Hamilton
His quarters hero are not far from these
of , the Hnu Joe Cannon , Who is making a
. ; lively fight for tbo speakership , nnd who
thinks ho Will got it Cannon Is n3 uncon
ventional in his appearance aad habits as
Hoed , but ho is an entirely different kind of
man Of medium height , ho is lean and
wiry , nnd his fnir , rosy fuco with n pair of
bright bjuo eyes looks out from under a
slouch bat , which ho pulls uoivn over it Ho
is a wostorncr in nnpearance , and , llko Heed ,
ho frequently moves nbout with his hands In
his pocket . , Ho is n great smoker , und is
seldom seen without a cigar in his mouth ,
the end of which is always well chewed Ho
does , not weigh as much as cither McKitiloy
or , Heed , but his frame has bceomo Iron
through oxcrclso , nnd It has been bis custom ,
to tuko a horseback ride every dav during
hi9 stay in Washington Mr Canuon is now
flfty-thrco years of nge , nnd ho has been in
conirress for the last sixtcon years Ho has
always held a good position on tbo lloor , nnd
ho is noted ns n iichtcr His favotlto attitude -
tudo in speaking is with ono foot on the
chair nearest him Then leaning over ho
shoots bis words nt the rate of 200 a minute
at the opnosito sldo of tbo bouse , gesturing
as ha docs so by slinking his linger at the
democracy , and by now and then violently
throwing Ills hand nt them Ho Is u good
speaker , is welt po3tcd onthoiulos , and ho
has many fnonas There Is nothing snob
bish about him , and everyone knows him as
Joe Cannon
Mr Cannon has not as many enemies as
Hoed , though bo is'by no moans so mealy
mouthed us ono of his Illinois constituents
Mr Cannon told the story of tbls muu
the ether dav When talking about the
habit of tatty giving , " which so largely
prevails at WusUlngton , said ho : "I have
in my district out in Illinois a mnn who
ought to have been \Vasbington society
woman Ho has a good thing to say about
every man nnd . everything , and ho comes
in especially strong at funerals , I will
call him JOnes for short Tboro is never a
funeral in the country but that Jones is
there , and In talking about the vlrturcs of
the deceased there is no praise so protuso
nor tongue so glib as Jones Ho can Ond
virtues in the worst of reprobates after they
nro den d , and ho is packed full of the milk
of human kindness from the bottom of his
flat cowhldo boots to the top of his bald
crown This peculiarity of his has become
a matter of county talk , and two young fellows -
lows of Dnnville made a bet upon the death
of a roprobatoof thocounty that Jones could
not find anything good to say about bim ,
This man seemed to be altogether bad ; ho !
bad been a worthless , good-for-nothing , lazy
follow during his whole life , und ho was
oao of those Idiosyncrasies ot nature which
scorn to have no good in them At tbo ,
time of the funeral the young follows rauk-
lng tbo bet stationed themselves in the '
window near which the procession going by
the coflln must pass , nnd waited for Jones
Ho came along In good time with his
handkerchief in his hand Ho stopped the |
procession as ho stood beside the coflln and
looked down on the reprobates foco long
and earnestly At last with a sigh ho ox-
clairaed :
Well , any way , ho had good tooth I"
Tlio two other candidates for the speaker

of Michigan They nro both reaching out i
their bands after the gavel , und tboro maybe r

W.V. . liudloy ns prison commissioner ,
Henderson does not look unlike Dudley ; ho

Cnrlossly throwing tisido her loose
.
morning wrapper , nn exceedingly llus-
sinn robe of whlto cnshincrc , with
trimming t . of black fur , she showed a
tightly fitted bodiuo of buckskin that
came up to the armpits und well down
over the hips '
"Vou hce , " said thn uctrosi , as she
swayed her bo y to and fro , that wliat-
ever pose I nssutno tlio contour ot the
body 1 ts proscrvod I utn supported
without . being restricted , as every ono
is in a cortiot "
The buckskin garment was laced on
cither sldo , and lilted tlio llguro per
fectly I , yet there was no suggestion of
stiffness
"I wear this iu all my parts , " con
tinued I Modjoska The Idea was sug
gested to mo by wearing an outer gar
niout of buckskin in my role of Rosa
lind 1 I discovered that 1 could move
with grcator case , and also that I made
a boUer appouranco thnnin any garment -
mont L Had ever worn "
The preservation ot whnt is known as
the line of beauty is a great fad with
some > ot the loadinir stars Mtiry An-
dorsou < , in her statuesque roles , mnkes
a great point ot this particular
"I think a corset is an instrument of
torture , " she said onuo , when nslcod to
give ' an opinion lam perfectly mis
erable ' if I put one on for half an hour
All my dinner dresses are made to bo
worn without corsets , und they are con
sidered ; by good judges to be \ cry ar

What do jou wear Instead ot a corset -
set ? " asked the correspondent ot the
Philadelphia Press
• Noting when oft the stage , but in
my parts 1 wear this , " nnd she hold up
a i roll of stout linen , cut in a bttip
nbout four inches wide It lookotl ex
actly like a surgoon'a bandage , nnd she
puts it on exactly as a bandage is put
on , rolling it round and round ncrbody ,
high enough to support the breast and
low enough to cover the torso
I ventured to remark that I should
think it would bo very still
"It Is moderately so , " said Miss An-
deison ; "it needs to bo in order to sup
port the body , but it is not like the bar
riendo of whalebones "
In some of the dilllcult rnovomouts
which she executes upon the stage Miss
Anderson says that this bundago is so 1
much of a support to her back thnt she
could not do without it in such parts as
the in The Winters Tale "
Then It is not so easy as it looks , " I
sucgestod
"No , " said Miss Andersen , with a '
smile ; very few things are "
Mrs Potter wears neither a corset nor
any substitute for ono
"I wear just four things , " said Mrs
Potter "A union suit ot heavy white 1
silk underwear , a broad bandaga round
the torso knitted ot heavy rod wool , a
|
ilannol Bkirt and my dross Inovor
were a corset in my lifo , nor did my
mother "
.
Mrs -Langtry says that the idea of
going without a corset or of/substitut
ing something else for it , is all non
souse There 'is nothtng , " she says , 1
"so easy as a perfectly mudo French 1
corset Talk about the 'lino-of beauty , '
there it is , " and she turned her body
just enough to show the curve of her
superb hip
Miss Jessie Millword , the English '
actress who has just como over , does
not wear a corset on the stngo and sub '
stitutes only tight bandages worn below
ho waist Sara Bernhardt wears a
tightly-lltted waist of ilannol , not as a i.
support , " she says , only because it is 1
comfortable and healthful "
Mr Bouclcault says that the aspect of '
crnco is UoponQont entirely upon the '
movement of the oody at the waist ,
VWutch the Oriental dancing girls , "
says this gentleman You will observe '
that all their subtlety of graeo is the '
swaying of the bodv by apoculiar move
mont ot the hips There is nothing else '
in the world sd seductive nnd so on-
trancing It is very sitnplo , and yet
there are hundreds of wontou with al-
moat faultless figures who move like
wooden images "

The wearing of masculine dross by >
women is , when ono counts up the number -
bor of woman who do it , not such a very
uncommon performance attor all , says
the New Yorld Another famous foinalo
sclontist und explorer , Mmo.-Diculufoy ,
a Fro noli woman , always wears coat nnd J
trousers whllo she is journeying in
strange lands She substitutes a skirt J
for the trousers when she gets back to
Paris , nnd the savnn ts assemble to listen '
to the results ot her travels , but the ?
cent she retains , with its nttondantshirt
and waistcoat , and she does not allow [
her hair to grow She declares that
woman's dross has done moro to hamper '
woman's energy and brains than all the
scoldings udministorod to Independent
women by it ion from the time of Isaiah ,

She has a thick mop ot short
hair that hangs in confusion ever her {
square , masculino-lnokitig brow , and
she wears a pair of wide trousers "
linen in summer and tweed in wlntor -
with coat to match , when she is tramp '
iug about her farm and in the holds
wutohlng and sketching animals She
also wears this costume when painting i
for she says that whllo standing before
tbo canvas so long the weight of her
skirt tires her , nnd , as she usually
paints such big pictures tboro is much
walking backward to bodono to obscvo
itho olfeet ot brush strokes , and that
hoie again her skirts hamper her She
always returns to skirts in the evening
when her days work is done , and never
sits down to dlunor in trousers Any

Kiilllnml'rt future Quern
I hear from a high English source ,
says J a Paris letter to the Now York
Tribune , that the Princess Feodora ot
Sehleswig-Holstcin , who did the KlITol
tower the ether day , chaperoned by her
elderly maidou aunt , Amelia , of the
same i house , is in all likelihood the
coming Princess Albert Vietor of
Wales She is a sister of the Gorman
emprossnnd ' a niece of Prince Chris
tian , the dull old husband of the best of
Queen ' Victoria's daughters , is going on
sixteen , loulcs a good sort of girl , and is
almost pretty But she is not likely to
improve when the bloom ot youth de
parts , and she wants winsome graces ,
hvidotitly Hhu has not como to her full
height When she does she will proba
bly bo as tall as her imperial sister
The queer would like to secure her
the crown of Great Britain , because she
is descended from her majesty's mother ,
thu duchess of Kent , ' whoso lirt hus
band was Prince Loinlngon Princess
Feodora has been a great deal here with
a party of aristocratic English frlonds ,
bomo of whom uro connections of her
aunt-in-lnw bn the maternal side , Coun
tess Gloichuiil Count Gloiclion aban
doned his highborn Gorman status to
marrv Laurnr'Soymour , and is a profes
sional sculptor , high iu tlio queens
favor Agnliibt German etiquette she
has been latterly styling thorn both
pcreno highliusbcs An objection to the
proposed royalimalch is thnt the young
lady's ' mothcr'ls in a inadhoti- . There
is already more 'thnn a touch of insanity
in the royal family of England

Sunsgstjons tn our Girls ,
Girls should bo taught to cook well
Much misuryjcoines from bad cooking ,
writes "An Old Bachelor
to an ex
change A jfouilg man marries a girl
who cannot coolt a dccontimcnl Then
mlschiut begins lie works hard , earns
inonoy , gives moat of it to her She
takes the monoytbuys victuals , cooks
them badly Ho nnd she oat thorn
The victuals are so badly cooked that
they will not sustain * the liros of indus
try Ho books stimulants , drinks
She , poor and ignorant croatdro , gets
consolation from the nearest sewing so-
cioty She cant undorstaud the chnngo
that has como ever him no knows it
will do no good to acquaint her with
the truth ; it would bo stranger than
fiction to her
There are thousands of ensos em
braced iu this outline , all caused by the
prevailing inability to cook well Boys
uro trained for practical duties of lifo
Girls need a moro comprehensive edu
cation , They should be taught how to I
cook a decent meal , ono that sustains i
the Arcs of application , without which
no man can succeed in the battles of i

among its faculty a competent cooking
teacher -

The queen , it is known , is very par
ticular in many matters of dross , nnd it ;
seems that the princess of Wales and [
her datightow are no loss so Low
necked and short-sleeved toilets nt the 1
proper time have never como under
royalty's frown , but the queen his always -
ways insisted on a bona ildo sleeve , and I
no princess handover been allowed to )
withstand this verysonslblo regulation '
In the matter of high-heeled shoes , too ,
some slight tribulation has risen at
times , fashions rcqiiiromont and the
queens moderation being very dilllcult
of reconciliation
The princess of Wulos hns not to con t
cern herself much about the dress of
these nround liorsliico she is to a great
extent tno nrbitross in the highest cir
cles of what i . * correct She ulwiijs
dresses well , and yet wo loai n that not
till the last minute docs she dccldo

The princess and her daughters have
ouch their busts and dross stands , the
former mouldod.exactly . to their figures
These ' skeletons "
royal are of wire i
beautifully padded , and covered with
brown hollaud.tho uaino of the original I
