The Artistic Doo.rution ami (h« Skillful Arrangement of Color. First decide upon the design and general scheme of color, and it is then easy to select the wall decoration, furniture and curtains, which should be done with reference to the original plan and color scheme. The amount of light and the size of the room are perhaps the chief factors in determining its color. In rooms facing north the north light, which is whitish to bluish in color requires it to be decorated in luminous tints, rang ing from orange yellow to warm red. Rooms with a southern exposure should be decorated in tints ranging from greenish yellow to blue, because the south light has yellow and purple. Rooms facing east and west should be decorated in yellow tones, as east and west lights have yellow and purple in their composition. The character of the rooms them selves often determines their coloring. For example, we may consider the various rooms of the house, begin ning with the hall, as the radiating branches of a tree, the hall being the trunk' thereof. The hall therefore, stiould be accentuated with strong dark colors, while the other rooms may range from low strong tones of the library to the gayest tints of bed rooms and boudoir. A good color for the ha'll would be either a Pompeiian oi Damascus red. These reds, hav ing yellow in their composition, will naturally harmonize with the yellows and browns of the woodwork. Other colors, such as the varying tints of dull yellows, russets, browns and tans, are suitable for hall decoration. In libraries rich hues also are neccessary. There are, for example, reds, browns, golden greens and orange, gobelin blue, sage green and terra cotta. Salmon pink and all light, delicate colors are good for parlors. For dining rooms, the warm colors, such as soft reds and browns, are frequently used. We may also use combinations of blue, green and silver, which are cool and refreshing in the daytime and light up brill iantly at night. The ball room or drawing room is best decorated in light monochromat ic tints, relieved with gold. The purpose of such an apartment is to show off the inmates at their best under artificial light, and the poly chromatic dresses s of the ladies will appear even more brilliant against a uniform back-ground of cream and gold. For boudoirs and bed room-1. Ke tones of the softer shades, such as pale red, pale green and so on, are appropriate, enlivened with gold or silver or their complementary tones in small masses.

An lutcres'lng Budget of Gossip From the National Scat of Government. How Tripp Way Tripped—Per sonal Mention—-The "Exes" Very Much in the Swim. WASHINGTON. March28.—Mr. Tripp was tripped up at the last moment. It was not the square thing to treat him thus, either. For he did not seek the office, neither did he wish to be the commissioner of the general land office. But for some reason, Known only to the inner circle, his name did not come out of the box. Mr. Senator Vilas had a better "pull" than did J. J. Ilill who gave $100,000 to secure Mr. Cleveland's re-election. Mr. Vilas is very solid with this ad ministration—the senatorial spokes man thereof. This case reminds me of Southey's line: "It is the sudden trip that fetches a man to the ground." MISTAK K\. A Mitchell paper states that Johnny Pease says he has been ap pointed clerk of Senator Kyle's com mittee. In the presence of Senator Ky,le I today asked Duncan McFar land who is tlie clerk of this commit tee, repeating what Pease is alleged to have said. Mack, the Scot, said: "Perhaps he is: but I've been sworn in and am drawing the pay." GOING SLOWLY. The senate is going quite slowly. They have two or three meetings a week—or, to be exact, they've had nine sessions in three weeks. The president is very slow in sending in nominations—just as any man would be who lias to talk daily with scores of applicants for office. No president has been more persistently besieged for office than Mr. Cleveland has been in the last three weeks. And when the applicants reach his room they are nearly rude in crowding up to liim and saying: "Gimme this," or "Gimme that." The president is patient and not so brusque as he was in isx."). But I was speaking of the senate. This body has before it the question of admitting three gentlemen who have been appointed by their gov ernors after the legislatures had the opportunity and failed to elect. No senator has ever been admitted to this body under such conditions. If these gentlemen are refused admis sion, their states will only be half represented until their legislatures elect—perhaps two years hence. The cases have been referred to the com mittee on privileges and elections, where majority and minority reports have been prepared. These may re quire a week or more of debate. There is to be an attempt made to elect new officers of the senate. The democrats have made their nom inations, but they have noc bound themselves to support these nomina tions, for there are, it is said, about fifteen senators opposed to turning out the officers at a special session of the senate—an act without precedent in the history of the senate. But even with these two questions before them they ought to and expect to adjourn by April 10th at the latest. FEW LEFT. Most of the South Dakotans have gone home. A man needs to have held a fat office for a year before he can afford to stop a month in a tirst class hotel in Washington. About the only one of your citizens who wears a smiling face is Major Anthony V. Lei ben of Pierre. He is so sure of that Indian inspectorship that he wouldn't give 12i cents to be insured on getting it. Gov. Couchman is" his principal local competitor. Leiben says of him: "He is not a Cleveland man at heart: he's the only one of our delegation to the Chicago convention who voted for Hill. And he refused to withdraw from the state ticket last fall so we could defeat the re publicans." How a man's failings do shine when the man is in another s way! THE EXES MOLLIFIED. The latest news from headquarters is that the president decides an "ex" can have a different position from the one he held in 18&J-9 but not the one he filled in tliakperiod. It is being told that thF western "relative" whom Mr. Cleveland refused to give an office is a cousin of Mrs. Cleveland and used to edit a paper somewhere i n i n n eh aha county, South Dakota. Know himV MR. (TItRY CURRIED DOWN. A man named Curry was appointed commercial agent at armoutli, N. S., by a new assistant secretary of state who bad no authority to do it. A letter of introduction from Private Secretary Thurber caused the new assistant secretary to believe it the president's desire. Curry packed his grip and got all ready to start. Then Mr. Cleveland read the incident in the dailies—hauled the assistant secretarv over the coals for his rapid ity and induced him to revoke Curry's commission. Even the high-muck-a mucks can err. What a solace to us in the humbler pa i,lis! PERSONAL. Mrs. Senator Kyic uncLberdaughter left here last week to visit relatives in Ohio. Her health has been poor all the winler.

Tunell, who lives near Sioux Falls, was looking over an old tin box a few days ago when she ran across three express orders sent to her mother through the Adams Express Company in J868. The orders aggregated in face value $1,000 and had never been cashed. The box and contents were given to Mrs. Tunell by her mother when the latter died near Albert Lea, Minn., seven years ago. The Tunell family is in close circumstances and the windfall to them is almost a fortune.

The Dead Burned In a Heap Helpless Women Suffer Tortures. fought severaL Vrillela with a A disastrous battle was near Tatumbia, Honduras, days ago. General Alfonso had been sent to the front large body of government troops to intercept the march of the revo lutionists who were moving against the capital at ..Tegucigalpa. Tatumbia had been occupied by the troops under Gen. Terrenca Sierra, who commands the south wing of the revolutionary army. In con nection with the west wing of the revolutionary forces, commanded by Gen. Reyna, Gen. Sierra was leading the advance on Tegucigalpa. The east wing, under Gen. Reyna, was four miles in the rear of Gen. Sierra's forces. Gen. Villela's approach was in the nature of a surprise to the revo lutionary command at Tatumbia. He had stationed a body of cavalry on a height in front of the town on the road to Tegucigalpa, but the cavalrymen appeared to be unaware of the approach of the enemy until an attack had been made. The officer in command desperately attempted to rally his men. They made a brave and determined re sistance, but were steadily pushed back toward the town. So closely were the cavalrymen followed that the advance of Villela's pursuing army approached within 150 yards of the outskirts of the town. One band of guerillas bravely pushed on in the pursuit until they were only fifty yards from the town, but were driven back with considerable loss of life by the reinforcements sent forward by Gen. Sierra. Reyan's troops were then pushed rapidly to the front. Col. Manual Rosas, with two companies, leading the advance. The battle had begun so late in the day that firing had to Oe suspended on account of darkness when Col. Rosa's detachment arrived to relieve the besieged army in Tatumbia. Gen. Villela's forces fell back a short distance and waited for the following day to renew the attack. A flank movement upon Gen. Villela was decided upon. Five hundred Texigant braves were de tached from tlie east wing, and with Gen. Reyna himself at their head, occupied a height to the left of the position held by (Jen. Villela's army. Gen. Villela renewed his attack upon the revolutionists at daybreak and the battle was soon raging all along the line. As soon as the attack in front became general, Gen. lteyna and his Texigant braves opened fire on Villela's forces in the rear. This attack was so tierce and surprising that the government troops were almost demoralized. The Are in front and rear raged for an hour and a half until the govern ment forces could stand it no longer. Gen. Villela ordered a retreat and the demoialization was completed. No more than fifty soldiers of Villela's army followed him in the retreat. With this small force lie fled toward LaMontanita. Small bands filed in other directions, hotly pursued by the revolutionists. They killed as many as they could while fleeing and when the fight was over all who had been captured were slaughtered. No prisoners were retained to be cared for. More than 100 trovernment soldier* fell in the battle and fully one-half as many revolutionists were killed. Tlie bodies of all who fell on each side were gathered in a heap and burned. Further dispatches from Honduras, state that the position of Acting President Aguero is a pitiable one. He is said to be practically a prisoner in the capital and is acting undor the orders of Gen. Yasquez, who is Dr. Bonilla's rival for the control of the Republic. Gen. Yasquez has gone into the field to lead the m§n who favor his cause. Anarchy, terror and despair ape rampant in Tegucigalpa. The per sons and property of those suspected of sympathizing with the revo lution are not respected. Wives and children of absent revolutionists have been imprisoned and subject to frightful tortures. 'Assaults of the most revolting character have been committed, and even the hair has been cut from the heads of womea. Vasquez is held responsible for tUtte atrocities.
