Tinciblo baby. It is plainthat this jtiYenild
mamma is inclined to take things Mriously.
nnd wishes to drew, with gravity beyond
. ber years, perhaps to increase herdiKtrity.
Married and a mamma at twenty is enough
to giT one serious riews of life, but it is a
mistake to mope in grave colors so early,
now to clothe tiie baby.
Now for baby, Trhoso outfit is to be
'something quite good and pretty," whose
mother is minute in questionings, and
quite right to be so. "For head wear,
what should It be. cap or bonnetf Caps
at first for the soft little bare pates, that
is, a little hood close to the head, of China
silk or crepo da chene,a straight front
gathered to a round crown no larger than a
half dollar. TheTery thinnest wadded
silk-lining will be needed in October. A
ruche of white silk muslin or crepelisse
with fancy edge will be a suitable finish,
and a big rosette of white silk muslin with
loops of narrow white satin-edged ribbon
. is worn on the top. These round caps
make some sort of shade for the unused
eyes necessary, and a Shetland veil, or bet
ter, one of fine dotted net is added to cut
. oil the soft breath, and injure the optio
Ben e. If a parasol gives a cool account
of itself, it is to sh'ade a baby's lace, with
out the stuffy wool veil which compels
breathing the tame air over again, and
makes the idea of taking an airing a mock
ery. Try it yoarself and see how you like
a woolen veil in sunshine.
2. -Would pure white or cream be
nice, or would some color be more proper
and becoming in both cloak and head
dress?1' Pure white is not only the most
appropriate, but most convenient wear for
babies under two years, as it stands more
changing and is less apt to spot than col
ors. It takes the cream shade soon enough
with cleaning. The white washing silks,
the white camel's hair add charming things
to the list of fabrics for baby wardrobes,
and stand doing over better than cash-
' mere. The camel's hair makes the pretti
est cloak, with its wadded silk, lining for
cool weather. The fashion for these cloaks
cnlains a round waist with big sleeves
and a long ekirt gathered on this band
or bodice. The German way of dressing
, a young baby is droll, but has some
thing to be said for it, as to health and
"comfort. The tenderling is simply put
in a wadded silk bate, which ties around
. the neck, leaving arms and legs free, but
perfectly protected from the wind, which
is more than ran be said foroor long cloaks,
with two widths of generous camel's hair
in the skirt. The Spanish state dress for
infants has the object laid on a pillow or
small satin mattress, longer than the child
' at each end, and the showy frontal of em
broidery and point lace is merely laid over
and tied with ribbons or basted to the pil
lows, without any back to the robe at all.
At least this takes the weight oft' the creat
tnre condemned to wear it. 1 think the
wadded bag would be a comfortable
thing to co sleigh-riding in for older folks.
Who was it, being troubled with poor cir
culation and chilly at Bight, contrived a
lecping-bar. such as forms part of an ex
plorer's outlit, from a pair of blankets,
bewedupthe side and at one end, with
' strings to tie round the neck and arm-holes
to use if needed! lint this important baby
is in danger of being forgotten.
S. "What color are his stockings to be!"
The touch of color on the bud is in the
email footings of soft est wool and silk com
bined, which should be white with pink or
sky blue soles and sides, tied on with inch
Wide soft ribbon, laced through open work
above the ankle, ribbon the same color as
the stockings of course, and the first shoe
is a little moccasin cut oat of old white kid
' gloves, ennningly lined with silk, folded
and feather-stitched together. Little boots
of all wool delaine, silk-lined and bound,
follow, and with a kid sole cross-stitched
on, are more durable than all kid shoes,
when the baby undertakes to wear them
' commonly in his mouth.
4. "Should the dress be rimmed with
embroidery or lace!'1 Heavy embroidery
no longer is wasted on infants' dresses,
which are set off with delicate needle-work,
, and very fine, soft torchon or Valenciennes
is the only edging used, with insertion of
fine embroidery for the belts of baby waists
only. Softest nainsook makes the day
' dresses in ordinary wear, which are a yard
long from the neck, with high waists and
long sleeves altogether. The little French
gown, which it the most sensible pattern,
has the fullness of the neck and sleeves
bound with nainsook and a narrow lace,
edge sewed below it, not standing to'
chafe tender necks and waists. Not a
cle of starch should ever be allowed
in a baby's dress. They are more chafed
and worried with trimmings than we can
pness, until you remember how a mnsiin
trill can saw your throat to redness and
rawness. Drawn work and hemstitching,
tine tuck feather stitching, and pearling
' are the triumphs of, needlework shown in a
baby's layette. Beading, newer tHan hem
stitching, is a row of small eyelets, worked
just above a hem. 'Kibbons run in. drawn
work are favorite ornaments on long
dresses, white ribbons for the first three
months, afterward pink for a boy and blue
. for a girl clover pink for a blonde boy,
and very palo nine for a dark baby girl.

Of course one must learn how to live in
Florida; that means what to eat, when to
exercise, when to rest; and. above all, he
znnst have a real love for and joy in nature.
Jie must have caution until he knows how
to use precaution; and this not because
there is more danger there than elsewhere,
but precisely because there is less
. danger there than elsewhere. It is
here, of all places, that nature gives
her maximum of security, her minimum cf
risk to her worthy lovers, and in this sense
of safety with her at all hours lies the
whole truth about the dancer. One forgets
that danger can exist, and, so persuaded,
goes too far aud too fast in presumption on
her favor. This too easy familiarity she can,
and she may, punish. It is best to make haste
elowly in gaining her complete devotion.
Do not, at first, give yourself too much to
the unsheltered air of night. Have a wrap
always at hand, for the first hint of chilL
In short, be half as prudent here as you are
anywhere else, and you will gam a whole
world of new liberty, and have nothing to
lose in exchange. I have spent days and
nights on all waters in Floridathe Weki
va. the St. John, the Indian river, on the
. open gulf of Mexico, in the harbors of Key
' AVedt and Marco, and upon the placid
waters which float upon their surface the
ever-verdant fleet of the Ten Thousand isl

and the stars by night, and have come out
of it with a brown face, a clear eye, no ex
tra llesh. considerable extra spirit, with
"an appetite that could eat the solar sys
tem like a cake," with stores of plunder
laid in by the imagination for tame days
ahead, and with a treasury of physical
vigor to help me through our Northern
It is enough to say that in Florida there
is room and the right place for you. who
ever you are, when you find it. The thing
is to find it. And here the only word I have
to say is, lind it yourself. Do not ask any
one he way. Do not go anywhere irre
vocably on the recommendation or experi
ence M any one else. Do cot jump at the
otlev if land from some amiable land agent
to build a house or plant an orange grove
on. Go. and continue to go until von find
the place that suits you. That p'lace ex
ists, and you will know it when you reach
it; nor will the reports of any spies of
Asialon disturb your peace or unsettle
' your preference. It is all a matter of ex
periment The only word I am willing to
s&y on this subject is, come and see.
As to the date of coming, and the date of
leaving. 1 think the student of Florida has
much to learu. if he be in search of health.
The tourist, as such. has. like Death in the
Eoeia. all seasons for his own. He can take
is trip of two weeks or two months any
timo between October and May. and not
miss much, whichever date he selects. In
his case it tides not matter, as nothing is at
cuke. But to the person who visits Flori
da with thepurposeof findingout just what
and all Florida can do for htm. in health,
date and duration of time are matters of
very great importance. On these points I
can give only a conviction founded upon
my own logic and observation. lor 1 have
not made acquaintance with my Florida as
an invalid.
If I were an invalid and wished to test
the whole value of the climate of Florida
to myself, I would go in October and stay
until September. I would spend Septem
ber on the water, and go back in October:
and thus I would live lor three years. If I
could not do this. I would goinOctoberand
stay uutilJune. One should have the bene
fit of the growing time, and the time of ma
turity, in the midst of this bountiful na
ture. All, and more, that spring and sum
mer do for us at the North they do for one
here. Vie revive when nature revives; we
awake and become fresh in her awakening;
and nowLnre does she awake as she does
here. All her cordials are in the air for us
to drink and assimilate. Her sap and our
blood run together. So it is everywhere,
and so it is in Florida. . .

Lived wifeless, childless, friendless. U it not my

The tears streamed from hec lovely, soft blue
- eyes.
Flushed were her cheeks, and bowed her slender
As a great gust of bitter anguish eame
And held her in its grasp: it alowly dies,
But only as the wind docs, soon to rise
With greater fury, fanning all the flume
Of hor wild sorrow, till she could not tame
The flr that raffed wihin her. I, grown wise
And old and weary, heard her sobbing; sore.
And watched her with compassion where she
Then came a sudden envy, as this truth
Hashed through my heart, that pitied her no
Only the very yonng can grieve like that.
And I would take her sorrow with her youth.

Of Interest to Smokers.
Philadelphia Inquirer.
"Very few smokers realizo the extent of
the harm done to the mouth, heart and
nerves by tobacco,'1 said a well-known phy
sician of tnis city wno has just :
from the Merlin Medical Congress.
who has just returned
1 was in Europe I learned of a simple and
effective method, of rendering tobacco en
tirely harmless without destroying its
aroma. The method, was discovered by Dr.
Gantrelet, of Vichy, and it should be re
garded as a priceless boon to smokers. It
consists of a small piece of ordinary cotton
wool steeped m a 5 or 10 per cent, solution
of pyrogallic acid, inserted in the pipe or
cigar-holder. This will neutralize any pos
sible ill ejects of the nicotine. In this way
not only may the generally admitted evils
of smoking be overcome, but cirrhosis of
the liver, which is sometimes caused by
tobacco, and much lightor penalties of
over-indulgence, such as headache aud
furring of the tongue, may be avoided.
Citric acid, which was recommended by
Vigier for the same purpose, has the sen
ons disadvantage of spoiling the taste of
the tobacco."

Popular Presentations After the 3Iod
crn School of Sensational Effects.
Experience of "Mr. Barnes of Sew Tork" and
Thrilling Incidents in "Siberhf-Strauss
Orchestra and the J nch Opera Company.
"Mr. Barnes of New York," "with the ex
cellent company and scenic etlects that
characterized Mr. Canter's clever dramati
zation of his popular romance of the same
name, on its previous visit, will be at En
glish's Opera-house tho current week, be
ginning to-morrow night. The play was
originally produced by Frank W.Sanger,
nt the Broadway Theater, New York. It was
pronounced a success, and Mr. Sanger put
the company on the road, and it went from
Maine to California and along the golf
coast The houses were packed in all
places, and "Mr. Barnes" was just as well
received in Indianapolis. The various
members of Mr. Sanger's company were
very effective in their respective parts,
Miss Emily Iligl being an ideal Marina, and
it would be hard to improve upon Sheridan
Black: as Danella. Miss Kftie Germon as
Lady Charties. and Miss Annio Blancke,
as Maud Charties, the incorrigi
ble young miss, were also very good.
But some notable changes have been made
in the cast. James Keill is now Mr. Barnes
of New York. Mr. Neill is no stranger to
Indianapolis, as he will be remembered for
good w ork done here as the confederate spy
in "Held by the Enemy," as Harold Army
tape in Shook & Collier's original "Lights
o' London" company, and, later, as the lead
ing support to Fred Bryton in "Forgiveu."
During the past season he was the leading
juveuile support to V. 11. Crane, and mad
one of the individual hits in the cast of
"The Senator" at the Star Theater, New
York. Miss Annie Haines will be remem
bered for her work in jnvenile roles with
Julia Marlowe and will be gladly accepted
as Enid Austruther, the haughty English
girl, whom Barnes starves into making his
acquaintance on a French railway jouruey.
Aside from the changes specified the cast
remains practically the same as last season.
Tho scenery has also been greatly augment
ed. The railroad scene, in which a train of
cars is made to pass in full view of the
audience, hasbi en improved. At each stop
of the train, at Tonere, Dijon and Lyons, a
different interior aud surroundings will
greet the spectator, relieving tho monotony
in its previous presentation. Matinees will
bo given on Wednesday and Saturday.
Bartley Campbell's picturesque and strik
ing melodrama, "Siberia," will run through
out the week at the Grand Opera-house,
with matinee performances on Tuesday,
Thursday and Saturday afternoons. The
play is well known in Indianapolis, as it is
in nearly every section of the country,
though it has not been seen in this city for
several seasons. The story of "Siberia" is
highly dramatic, and is crowded to the
limit with incidents and situations of a
thrilljng character. It is regarded by
many as the strongest of Campbell's plays,
and its continued popularity and success
ful runs seem to warrant this claim. Much
of the success of the piece is probably due
to the fact that it deals with
the better side of humanity and
appeals strongly to the sympathies
of an audience. It deals altogether with a
subject that is calculated to culist the
sympathy of the middle classes and nil
others who believe in personal freedom.
The drama affords splendid opportunities
for the introduction and display of attract
ive scenery and many of the stage set
tings and tableaux add materially to its
success. The present organization is said
to bo well eqnippe'd with effects, and the
company, which includes about twenty
live people, is the best that has ever pro
duced thedrama.it is claimed. Some of
the original members aro still with the
company. "Siberia" was in Pittsburg last
week and did a line business.
The choicest instrumental musical enter
tainment of the season and one of the
finest that has ever been given in Indian
apolis will be oflered at Tomlinson Hall
this week by the noted waltz composerand
leader Eduard Stranss and his Vienna
orchestra. The engagement of this excel
lent organization will begin Wednesday
evening and include entertainments Thura
day afternoon and evening. The chart of
the ball is now thown at the Grand Opera
house and the demand for seats indicates
that good audiences will attend these con
certs. The Strauss orchestra has been in
this country since the early spring and has
achieved remarkable success. It was at
the Madison-square Garden for ninety
nights. Formoro thin half a century the
n'ime of Stranss has been a household word.
1'oetry, romance and sentiment have sprung
from the music which father and sons have
written and which all the world has taken
ud. delighted in and diffused. It is claimed
that the four Strausses have sent out
nearly 1..VK) compositions. Tho orchestra
that will come to Tomlinson Hall com
prises lifty well-trained musicians. The
programmes for the concerts will embrace
quite a variety of selections, though dance
music will, of course, predominate. Sev
eral of Eduard Strausa's own compositions
will be given, as well as a number of his
father's waltzes. There will also be selec
tions from Wngner, Beethoven. Sullivan,
Gounod, Iiizet, Adam, Delibcs, Mozzkow
ski. and others. A new programme will be
given at each entertainment. The press
throughout the country has been .highly
complimentary in its expressions, and the
concerts have drawn line audiences
wherever they have been given.
The Park Theater will this week present
a novelty in "Olo Olson," a comedy-drama
that has created a favorable impression
wherever it has been produced. This is the
play's second season, bujt it has never been
seen hero, and the management offers it as
one of the best attractions that will be at
the Park this year. Tb novelty of the
performance lies in the chief character
using a Swedish dialect, something original
in the way of a stage representation. G. J.
Heege, who wrote tho drama, is also the
central figure in it. He has, it is claimed,
introduced some unique situations and
comedy business, while tho work possesses
a fair amount of genuine dramatic merit.
Mr. Heege has played "Ole Olson" in all
parts of the country, and tho tenor of the
ress's notices in the various cities where
le has appeared show6 that the performance
has attracted large audiences and given
general satisfaction.

Some Expensive Furs.
Chicago Post. ,
The most expensive fur is the Russian
sable. As high as $150 is paid for a single
perfectskin. Russian sables can be bought
as low as to a skin, but they are not
of the best quality. They are not much
used in this couutry except for trimmings
oncloakH and overcoats. The next most
expensive is the silver fox. This animal
comes irom the Hudson bay country in
British North America. They will range in
price from the lowest, $5, to the highest,
$125, a skin according to quality. The sea
otter is valued from $100 to 200, but even
at these figures it is not so expensive asthe
Russian sable because the sea otter is about
ten times larger than the sable. If the
sablo were equal in size to the otter a Rus
sian sable skin would cost fully $1,000.
These are the highest-priced furs. Seal
skins are not so expensive. From 8'-J.h to
$-jO is a fair average price for a first-class
seal. These aro the Alaska product. Japan
furnishes an inferior seal, the fur of which
is iargelv used for trimming, and the skin
is valued from 15 to J5each. Beavers
are worth from 7 to $12 each, aud the

From n Female Suffragist's Stand-Point.
Kate FleM's Wfcufciugton.
Mississippi is in a sad plight. She needs
the kindest counsel. Treat black and
white alike, restrict suffrage to intelligence
and property regardless of sex, and who in
the North will not sympathize with a State
that has been liret in the South to give
women legal rights? A married woman is
as independent as a feme sole. She trans
acts business and wills away her property
untrammelled by her husband. How many
Northerners know this significant fact!
Mississippi sets so good an example in this
respect that she should add to her laurels
by further acta of justice. I pray that del
egato Fewell may prevail over politics and

" How to Talk Well.
Ladies' Home Journal. ,
Learn to listen well and very soon you
will find yourself speaking the word in sea
son and surprising yourself, as. well as
others, by the quickness with which your
thoughts will be well expressed.
Head the words of great writsrs. think
them over and conclude in what way you
tliiler from them. The woman v.ho talks
well must have opinions decided ones
but she must have them well in hand, as
nothing is so disagreeable as an aggressive
talker. Say what yoa have to say pleas
antly and sweetly: remember always that
the best thing in life, dear, sweet love, has
often been won by that delightful thing
"a low voice."
Do not be too critical: remember that
every blow given another woman is a
boomerang which will return and hit you
with double force. Take this into consid
eratoin: It is never worth while making a
malicious remark, no matter how clever it
may be.
Worth what while? Worth, my dear
girl, the while here, which is, after all. so
short; and the while hereafter, which is
after all. so long and sweet.. It seems to
me that when you and I stand before the
good (Jod it will be the little gossip, the
Ectty talks about others, of which we will
e most ashamed.
Never forget that mere idle talk is quite
as bad as gossip, for nobody is gaining any
good from it. and as no vacuum exists in
nature, none cau in every day life. Not to
be a good talker, my dear girf; not to be an
interesting woman, quick in your sympa
thy and ready always.to give the word of
gladness to those in joy, or speak your ten
der thought to one who is in alllictiou, is to
be that most unpleasant of people an un
feminine woman.
They Swore.
New York Press.
A friend of mine has two little sons. aged,

But one day tho little fellows arosa feeling

naughty, and the nursery door bfting open

"Let's swear." proposed John, tho elder.
"Well, letb." lisped wee Charlie.
"(Jo ahead," said John, encouragingly.
"You thwear tirtht." replied Charlie.
A moment's hesitation and John respond

"I swear!"
"Tho do 1." asserted Charlie, solemnly.
