f" Waller. ' "
If the fact that John L. Waller Is
Begro had anything to do with this gov
ernment's delay in seeing him righted,
then this government disgraced itself.
But in any case vigorous measures seem
now about to be taken by the authori
ties at Washington, so that all may yet
be well. John L. Waller was a colored
man of Kansas City. Ho was born a
slave at Now Madrid, Mo., in 1850.
He struggled on after tho war till he
graduated at a high school. Ho was a
live, brainy man mid became a lawyer.
Ho was a journalist when President
Harrison, in 1S91, appointed him con
sul at Taniatave, Madagascar. Waller
liked tho Hovas, and they liked him.
They became great friends, and when,
in 1894, President Cleveland appointed
Mr. Wetter of Georgia couvul in Wal
ler's place Waller remained among his
new friends and entered into trade
I here.
It was his intention to go heavily in
to tho farming and lumber business.
With American shrewdness he saw a
chance for great fortune in the rich soil
and virgin forest of Madagascar. Tho
Ilovas made to him on, conditions of
certain payments a lease for 30 years of
a tract containing 144,000 square miles
of land. It lay along tho east coast of
the big island and contained many har
bors. If Waller had been lot alone by
i lie French, he would have become as
rich as Monro Cristo. It was his inten
tion to ship tho wood, fruits and other
products of Madagascar to Europe and
America. Tho execution of tho enter
prise would have boon an excellent
thing for both Waller and the Malagasy
Then enmo the French invasion of
Madagascar. The French determined
that Waller should not havo tho ricli
concession granted to him by the Mala
gasy government because they wanted
it themselves. So they trumped up n
. 'lunge that Waller was inciting the
!lovas to outrage, murder and riot. He
as ari'csted. A form of military trial
was secretly gone through. Not a friend
of Waller's was allowed to bo present.
t the end of tho trial, which occurred
March IS and lasted three hours, Waller
.as sentenced to 20 years' imprison
ment in tho old French Chateau d'If.
lie was taken to Frunco a prisoner in
roiis. It is charged that ho has suffered
hardship and cruelty at the hands of the
Trench. His friends say ho has con-
nmption. Tho French government,
when asked for explanations, put oil
i Embassador Enstiswith tho excuse that
i he official report of the trial had not
vet arrived from Taniatave, and there
'iild be no investigation. But now the
t'nitcd States government must insist
n a thorough investigation, and that
, cry quick.
Ottco more this country has had its
-vful annual lesson on tho subject of
oi cst fires. Tho terrible ravages of the
i!.,mcs in Washington state will result
n the loss of many million dollars and
i I s of life that probably can never be
v ictly known. Few incidents in the
i : , . i v of the northwest aro so tragic as
. ;i of die Tour carpenters who jumped
o th"ii' death down a chasm l!i(i feet
! i n viiiie trying to extinguish the
.1 'Tjcs upon a burning bridge. These
- s is.srtr.liy begin iti one way through
lie criminal negligence of hunters and
snipers. Occasionally a spark from a
ra; hviy engine wakes the lire fiend, but
genera By it is tho reckless, wicked
'.unter;; who do it. The only way to
stop the annual destruction seems to be
:'. r .-rates themselves to euact forestry
iav.s with im-pi eters who aro constantly
n guard during tho warm weather,
b'ivo minutes iu tiio beginning would
have extinguished the (lames that have
wrought such ruin in Washington.
England and tho Enited States will
?ot stop till China has paid to tho last
:'art!iing indemnity for tho outrages on
missionaries. Tho United Slates will
accept nothing less, even though we
ourselves have never paid China dam
ages for tho Chinamen that havo been
mobbed and murdered in this country.
The ability of the Chinese government
io punish its subjects who have endeav
ored to wipe out foreign missionaries
may bo taken as tho exact measuro of
its ability longer to sustain itself at all.
If it cannot protect foreigners within its
borders and also punish its furious,
fanatical subjects who seek to "drive
out tho foreign devils," then tho Maut
ehoo dynasty is doomed.
Dong Focg, a Chinaman, got into a
tight and was sentenced to three years

cut off his cue, and now Dong Fong
sues tho state of New York for $10,000
damages. He may console himself that
the cuo will grow out again before he
gets his money.
America will this year produce the

Tho Spaniards have put off the end of

ft. View of Some of the Early Model! New
Dress Good Patterns Snaggy Woolens.
An Elegant Visiting and Walking Dree
of Gray Taffeta.
Copyright, 1893, by American Press Associa
tion. We are promised great things for fall
in the way of Louis XVI fashions, but
so far there is little evidence of snch a
decided change except the new cuffs, the
cutaway jackets and vest fronts and tho
ugly snrtouts. One finds far more re
minders of Marie Antoinette, with the
dainty fichus and tuckers and the pretty
silks, with their dresden patterns and
colorings, though I find no ono exactly
sure on the subject of the precise Louis
XVI styles. One early model shows a
basquo cutaway in front, showing a
white satin vest. Tho basque, or flaring
skirted coat, is of striped orange and
black satin. This is worn over a black
brocado satin skirt, with tiny orange
colored figures. With this there was a
fine mull fichu, edged with lace, the
ends being tucked in at the square open
ing. Tho new 6ilks are produced in rathor
small patterns, where natural flowers
aro portrayed in miniature and these
aro scattered over a plain ground. In
some patterns there are baskets of flow
ers, and the whole figure is not more
than an inch long. Tho brocades aro in
describably rich in texruro and more
delicate than showy in coloring. I saw
a superb white satin brocade, with flow
ers of pale straw color and with stripes
of delicato bine lengthwise. Other pat
terns had faint colored stripes, bestrewn
with small flowers, in natural colors
and most beautifully wrought. These
silks will be for the most elegant and
ceremonious gowns for winter. Somo of
these have raised plnsh or velvet flow
ors and other designs thrown up on the
surface. There is also a large lino of
glace brocaded silk, somo of it all in
ono color and others having two tones.
Orango and black, and, in fact, all tho
shades of yellow, are soen and will
donbltess bo very popular. Yellow in
ono of its shades is also often seen with
different light colored brocades. Glace
silks will bo worn this coming season to
a very great extent, as they give snch
satisfactory wear, and their crisp light
ness is also another point in their favor.
Thero is no silk so useful for lining for
thin dancing dresses of tulle, chiffon
and silk muslins.
Pale pink, blue, maize and light
c.reen glaces aro shown for dancing
dresses, and whero not entirely covered
with one of those filmy fabrics tho
sleeves and festooned flounces will add
their delicate lightness to tho crispness
f the silk. Faille with a thick, round
vd is among tho season's output, and
s ; are rat in duchess and peau do soie.
The groitc faille is superb, and whether
er -.J"w"..-.jjrf .
in black, white or any color it makes
up most elegantly. White grosse faille
will bo used for all tho winter weddings.
Panels almost covered with gold and
silver braiding aud embroidery as well
as 6tomachers, cuffs and vests are
among the handsomest new fash
ions. The gold and silver soutacho
braid is sewed to stand up on the
edge, which gives it a very sumptu
ous appearance. Sometimes the braid
ing is of white or other oolored soutache,
with a fine lino of gold cord all along
tho lower edge, sowed to the cloth. I
seo quito a number of foulards. These
aro twilled silks, not vory glossy, but
very useful, particularly for children's
gowns. Foulard is always printed with
dots, lozenges or small flowers, rarely in
more than two colors. Browns with
yellow dots, blue with white, rod or
yellow aro effective and very econom
ical. They will wash beautifully. There
aro also many designs of white and
cream with colored dots. These make
elcgnnt tea jackets and negligees, and
they will also be worn for kirmess
aprons. Naturally much lace and rib
bon will bo put upon them. All lace
for kirmess aprons and jackets should
be of a quality that will wash.
Dealers tell us that crepons and
alpacas have had their day, and that
tho mohairs must give place to the new
woolly and fuzzy stuffs, made and pro
vided for next fall and winter, but the
mohairs aro so pretty, so easy to keep
clean and so effective at a small cost,
and withal so durable and pleasing to
the eye, that I feel sure their knell has
not yet sonndod. Women have some
thing to say themselves as to what they
shall wear.
Tho new late fall and winter woolens
will bo so shaggy and so covered with
tufts of difforent hairs, woven in so
many different shapes and patterns, that
no one could recount them all in a day.
But that does not mean that we are not
to be allowed a choioe between them
and smooth faced goods. There are
some pretty silky, striped mohairs,
quito new and undeniably pretty, and I
am sure they will be worn to late in the
falL Covert cloth in all the new
shades will be used for tailor gowns, and
there will be cashmeres of excellent
qualities; some smooth, some witl
glistening white hairs on the surface.
Broadcloths are always in with the
I saw some designs for early tall
gowns, and noted that the blouse waist
is still with us, the notable difference
being in the sleeves, which are touch
smaller than they were and in quite
different shapes. Bishop sleeves with
volantes of the same material, or of
some kind of edged trimming, are of
tenest seen. Puffed upper and tight
lower sleeves are also seen, but they are
smalL Many of the blouses will match

the dress, either in whole or in part.
Ono pretty fancy of striped silk had the
front of the waist slashed with insets of
white batiste crossed with black lace in
sertion. The bishop slrk-es had ruffles
at the bottom with three rows of lace
around them. Another had the sleeves
and skirt alike of dark blue surah, the
sleeves shirred at tho elbows. There
was a pinafore overwaist of white ba
tiste, perforated all vovcr, and edged
with shirnngs and narrow black lace.
A dainty and youthful suit was of
cream white surah, with brown dots.
The sleeves were bishop, with falling
cuffs, edged with a narrow embroidery
done in brown silk. All of these had
draped belts of the dress material.
An elegant visiting dress, and one
also suited for carriage or walking, was
of dull dark blue and stone gray striped
taffeta, the skirt cut full, and with
godets. The waist was gathered full in
front, and had a yoke and side pieces of
lace, with bows at tho top and bott :".).

There are s.in.o young women in ITcw
York who receive fair incomes m v; "l.
bows and knots for hats, dresses, ri'p
pers or fancy work, for it seems tlrce
is a knack in making these things.
Then, whilo looking for sometbiar;
better, many young women havo earned
their board by serving summonses for
lawyers. Others act as collectors for
real estate agents. Others again solicit
advertisements for newspapers or maga
zines. These latter, of course, work
hard for small pay.
I asked a well known physician's wife
what she would do if thrown on her
own resources. "Well," she said, "mu
sic and art are the accomplishments I
excel in, but I also pride myself on
being a good housekeeper. There are
too many artists and musicians in the
city now, so I should try being a house
keeper. I know a good housekeeper can
always obtain a position. There are too
many who havo kept house in a quiet
way in some small town or city, but
who really know nothing about a New
York housekeeper's position or how to
get up teas or luncheons in New York
style, and are surprised to think they do
not obtain what they seek. " A. K.

If one can uso oil paints a little, a
beautiful book marker can be made out
of sheet celluloid. Cut out a piece 6 inch

of a hand point

Color it natural

with a sharp
knife up to tho

across. It can
then be lifted out
from the flat sur
face of the ob

slipped into a
book. The hand
goes on one sido
of a page, tho
rest of tho mark
