Will EeThree Hundred Flyerson the Indian apolis Track Ibis Season Sew Ones of Last Wcfk General Turf Solei A few days of nice weather would bring ont borse buyers in this city en masse. Already for a week past th sale of road sters has boen exceedingly good, the prices paid ranging from $175 to $?Z0. Thero has been a pickup in thonaluof drivers, good ones bringing from $125 to 8l"3, the com mon ones ran gin tr from i5 to $100. Not ho many draft animal have been disposed of. The inquiry for coaoh and match teams ha been brisk. Orders are waiting in various stables and exchanges for cood match teams, which are hard to get. Wherever city bnyers go they find foreign purchasers in almost all the conn try towns. Next month farmers will tighten their hold on their bones, and the httfr nn" trill tint re in the market. WairA, Blake sent a carload of roadsters and coach horses to Pennsyl zania late last week, and McDonald, of Chicago, was in the city gathering op ooaoh horses. Hor ace Woods purchased a carkad of Ken tucky blood, among which are three lino saddle and a good park horse. A few months aijo the Husa!an prince, Wlasemsky, undertook to make a very ex tensive trip over Asia on horseback, and he has encountered great difficulties and more or less real danger. In the kingdom of Slain In the rainy season, like some sections of our own couutry, much of the territory be comes Hooded, the water rising in many places so high as to require swimming the horses, and only those who have had ex perience in this know anything about its dilliculty auU danger. When unaccustomed to it the most gentle horses often become fairly frantic, and at tsach times it is very likely to prove fatal lor any person in tho water, no matter how good a swimmer ho may be, as he is very ore to be struck under by tho horse, not viciously, hut just as a drowning man is said to grasp at a straw, the idea being to get support or assistance. At such a time the ouly safety which tho tiwimnier has is by diving oat of sight, and swin.ming under water until reaching a position where he can grasp the horse by tnetuil;wben it is very easy to urge him forward toward the bank, as nearly all horees with heads unchecked and irte uso of tho legs, are quite strong swimmers. There is a great difference in horses as to the depth at which tliey nwim. Some swim bo lightly that with a rider on their backs the upper portion of the saddle remains dry, while others swim so deeply that only a portion of their heads aTe above water. Tne sensation is very different from that of riding anywhere on terra lirma, as the least inclination on the part of the rider to either side tips the horse over, ana when on bis side he is quite irresponsible of mak ing headway. In riahting the unitual if the rider leans just a tritle too far in the oopo sitedirection thehorBeiscarned beyond tho point of equilibrium to the opposite side. Tne Russian I'rince had several horses drowned, and was linally obliged to take eiepants. p Tne pool rooms of Covington. Ky., refuse to allow the well known turfman, Kobert llolloway, to lay his money on races with them. Just bofore going to Hot springs the past winter bis winnings were so heavy and continuous that during his absence the pool men entered into a combine agree ing not to accop any of hit bets. Good judgment and probably a little luck en abled him to beat tho bookies nearly every time. Scores of pikers and plungers fol lowed him in nis betting, and it is said his presence in Covington during the winter coat tbe bookmakers something like 8 0, 000. llolloway has gone to Lexington to look after his string of Tace horses, lie says tho Covington bookies haven't an ounce of "eand." . - Uy the French law, on every highway in France and every street which has a steep grade, there is stationed, at a point where the rise begins, an "extra horse." Tho law compels the use of this horse until the sum mit Of the bill is reached, and there is a Jjeavy fine for refusing to hire tbe xtra, at a small fixed rate. A placard by tbe road Bide indicates the point where the extra horse must be taken on and another, higher up, shows where ho may be dispensed with. All the truekinen and othor teamsters in large cities pay strict attention to this reg ulation, framed in the interest of toiling animals. Thomas Stuard received last week tbe following horses, to be trained at tho In dianapolis track: Lena F., by Amer ican Boy; Little Elgin. 2:20U. by Elgin Hoy; Iiurmab, a green pacer that can beat. 2:20, by Aiiicnoau Traveler; OrvaL, a green . three-year-old son of ' Norval. and a sure trotter; Dennis, greon three-yeAr-old, by llamcnger; Verne Walker, a fotir-yuar-old urteu stallion, by Hadger praguc. Verne Walker promises to be very fast, and Mr. btuard has great faith in him. This driver lias now an even dozen good ones on his Lauds. A few moro will arrive next week. There will bo more horses trained on the track here this spring, it is believed, than ever before; horsemen, with their strings are already quartering, and the demand for stalls is brisk. The straw has not yet beeu taken oft" the tract, most of the work being rut on the road. Uy the 10th of next June there, will he nc least three hundred horses training at tho traok. Three stable are in now, and others coming so touu as the sun appears. Tho year promises well for hore:nen, and all seem to bo enjoying the prospects. Indiana's Governor Matthews is a breeder of trotters and a practical all-round horse man. The racing soason in England was opened last Tuesday with tho .Lincoln spring meeting. Ornn Ilickok will come east the present season with some of Governor Stanford's trotters. Of 2 000 trotters that entered the 2:30 list in U'.fJ only Keventy-six made records of 2:W and better. - C. .1. Hamlin thinks his mare Nichtin gale is likely to wiu the crown now worn by Nancy Hanks.

Knox, the former owner of Nut wood, and lately superintendent of Fash ion stud farm, is now located at Terro Haute. Hon. J. C. Sibley, one of the proprietors of i'rospect Hill stock farm, is a probable iJemocratio candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania. With tne English buyers it's "d n tb? pedigree; let's nee 'em trot," and words of like import are quite fashionable in demo cratic America. The Terre Hante track holds tho world's records for both trotting and pacing, and T-rre Haute is tho best horse town in Indi ana lu every respect.

Some of them have low records. John W. Lewark. of Pendleton. Ind.. has had bad luck with hi Jersey Wilkes mare Jenny Wilkes, trial 2:21. A few days ago she lost twins by Day .Star, 2:17. Mr. Lew ark will now pot her in training and give her a good mark. She is an excellent mare. Kichard Croker denies that there is any truth in the report that he ottered 0.000 for the broodmare Thora. Hosavsthat whenThora was led past him at Fairviuw he remarked that he supposed she was worth 330.000. Mr. Heed replied that nhe was valued at SwO.lOt). That was all there was said regarding the mare. CITY'S ELEOTKIC LIGHTING Indianapolis Company Claims tho Most Complete Plant in tho Country. Underground and Aerial Wires New Power House on Kentucky Avenue The Power Jul Engines and Dynamos. Tho city of Indianapolis is soon to be in a blaze of electric light. To gome, who have waited long and expectantly for this light reform, the news may be received with some degtee of doubt. Those who do not believe in the prophecy may, however, be convinced of its truth by going down Ken tucky avenue, below the first track cross ing, and viewing tho splondid new edifice which will soon be completed for the home of tho new plant. The new electrio light plant, which is being built by the Indian apolis Light and Power Company, is sin gular for a number of reasons, ln the first place, it will exceed in excellence and ap pointment any other like construction in tho United States. Its machinery is all of the latest approved invention and style, with an eye to the durability and fitness of its apparatus. It will be one of tho most valuable improvements ever made to this city as a whole or a part. About nine months ago the Hoard of Public Works contracted with tho llrush company, afterwards consolidated with the Marmon-Perry company, for tho city's lighting on tho moonlight schednle for a period of ten years, and at once set about locating tho lights over the city. This was in August, and it required about three weeks to do the work. This gave the com pany an exact idea of what had to be done, and thw members of the company at once set out on a tour of the States to find tbe best and most improved machinery. How well they succeeded will be seen by a visit to the works or by waiting for tinal results. The matter of accomplishing the work in volved, of conrae. is a large expenditure of money, much more on account of the com pany being compelled to lay underground wire. This kind of wire costs many times more than aerial wire, in addition to the cost of digging the trenches for it. The laud where the building is being constructed was purchased long before, and work begun on it last May. The main building covers a space 1T,0 by 100 feet, and the uoiler room is 50 by 1C0 feet. The roof ing is of asbestos, paper, tin, etc., and is proof against lire. It is stated by Mr. John Martin, the brick contractor, that there is more brick in this than any other building in this city. Tho floors are also tire proof. The basement takes . in the entire length of the building, all the founda tions coming up tnrongh it to the first lloor. This department contains the shafting for arc apparatuses. This shafting is of an unusual make, being six inches in diameter, two lengths of which run tne entire distance of the room, cut into sections, so that one, two or three or any combination of dynamos may be run at a time. Tbe belts are bo arranged that .none are seen on the first lloor. The main dmes from engines to shafts will be noise less rope transmissions. The condensers are all in tbe condenser pit below the base ment, and extend the entire length of the building. Under the coudenscrs is a fonr-ft&t well, thirty-live feet deep, to supply water wteu running liffht. id connection with the condensers. The pumps in the con densers are on a level with the water sup ply, and all wires from underground dis tricts coming mto this substructure run to one switchboard in such a manner that no wire in seen on the first floor, including the dynamo and engine foundations the bricks used in tbe substructure are two million. Outside the buildings is a mam moth well, connected with the basement by a tunnel. This well is twenty-five feet in diameter, the brick curbing extending downward forty-five feet into tbe ground. On tbe first lloor are thirty-two Brush aro dynamos of sixty-live arc lights eaoh, that furnish all the power for the city as well as commercial work. All these dyna mos are connected with or to a marble switchboard on the first lloor. The first lloor contains all engine apparatus, aro and incandescent dynamos, which are connect ed with shafts below. The steam dynamos have a capacity of 40.0SO incandvscents. The power plaut combines 5,000 horse power. With all this intricate machinery, the first floor is tree from obstruction, all tinder ouo roof, eo that men in charge of machinery can see every -machine under their supervision. A traveling train runs the entire length of the building, arranged so as to pick up any piece of machinery and shift tbe same to any quarter of the building. ' The six boilers are all of the best make water tubes and contain 210 tubes each. They are eo arranged that explosions are impossible, as they havo already stood 230 pounds hydrostatic pressure, and will carry only about l."0 pounds steam pressnre. The smoke ami gases are conducted through an underground pipe to tbe stack outside, whioh is tho largest in tne State, with an outside diameter of lOVj feet and 150 font h;ah. built in the shape of an octagon. Gas will be used tor fuel. The engines are 60 larae that their revolutions will not be over 120 per minute. These engines average sixty tons each. The lamps will he of the bent make, less a creat deal of the usual weights, trappings, etc., which ac company them. The posts are of very cont lv Bteel, small, with extra strong arms. There can be little doubt but that tho system of lighting will be the most com plete of nny at present employed in the United States, while the plant will be one of the most expensive in use at the present day accordiug to its size. The city will soon appear as it has never appeared before, and wiil bo void nf dingy streets or absolute darkness after midnight, at an expense not any greater than haj 'heretofore been met for much poorer service. For the General Good. Philadelphia N'orth American. As the constitution of the community be comes more complex, there must be a re action in thedevelopment of individualism, which has been one of the characteristics of the nineteenth ceuturv. There must bo some modification in the contractual rela tions which form the basis of contemporary civilization aud a partial return in some shape to the relations of status upon which organized societv rested in feudal times. The rights o! individuals will have to ho more and more subordinated to the neces sities of .the publio at largo. As time goes on the people will become increasingly nn willing to sutler loss and inconvenieuce through contentions in which they have no voice or part, and they are certain to lfnd ways and means of &eli-protect ion.

One Writer Retuices Her Fell ovr-Women for Tbeir Inane Conversation Simplici y in Decoration Desirable Fashion Notes. During Mrs. May Wright Se wall's recent visit to Eastern cities, in the interest of the Woman's Council, of which she is president, the Kew York fcnu had a two column talk with her on the work and pur poses of that body in connection with the world's fair. Incidentally her views were asked as to tbe various phases of women's progress and development, and this por tion of the interview is here reproduced: "Would you have women hold publio of fice!" was asked. "Certainly. I would have woman eligible for all otiicftj held by men; that is. 1 would not have eligibility a question of sex, but of capability and desert. Because- all men vote, all men are not expected to hold of fices, unless their ability irerits the places of honor. And if any msn finds it incom patible with his private affairs to servo tho state in official place, he has tho privilege of declining the nomination of his party, l'erhapa if good women could en ter into political atTaira, and would accept political offices, they might bo elevate this duty of citizen ship that it would not be so difficult to got our most worthy men to take a part in the atlairs ot state. With woman, during the rime of rearing her children, this duty would be considered paramount to all pub lic demands. Indeed, in an ideal state of existence the responsibility of fatherhood would be recognized more seriously than at present, when the children in the world are practically half-orphaned because the father is converted into a mere, money making machine, or is absorbed in the realization of bia ambition for place and lame, lletter might the mother share with him the care of providing means for the household, that be may thus sharo with Iter the duty of bringing up his own chil dren, in whose education and formation of charaoter his influence is as essential as that of the mother's." 'What reform would women institute first if they wero in powerf" T think their first effort would bo the securing of the same moral standard be tween the two sexes. Ot course, you can not legislate morality, butif the law recog nized what we call a crime in wotnao a crime in man. and what wo call a sin in woman a sin in man, then the statute would not hold woman so lightly. 1 do not mean that by establishing tne same stand ard for men and women th it the restric tions would be more lax for women, but more strenuously exacting for men." 'What is tho greatest wrong now suf fered by women!;? "The disadvantage arising from the lac& of pecuniary independence. No value is attached - to the services of the wife and mother. Woman is dependent upon tho caprice of the husband, and his standard of intelligence aud generosity 6ets the bounds of her liberty. This absoluto de pendence and lack of the dignity of value and responsibility results in deceit, penuri oaenessand extravagance among women. Kather contradictory terms, but the natural outcome of this undesirable condi tion. That is one reason why 1 disagree with the peopie who advocate that married women should not enter intv professions and occupations to earn cieaus of their own. '.Every woman who works for money when she is not obliged to dignities wage earning and makes it less humiliating for the woman who is obliged to work. Every woman who thus demonstrates woman's value as a wage earner sets a value on the service which the wife and mother renders to her family. "The rioh woman, as well as the poor, has a right to the highest culture and tru est happiness, which comes ever from tho exercise and development of one's gifts and talents. The measure of worth is money, the test of excellence and succoss is the de maud of the public. Consequently the rich woman has as good a right to sell her work for money as tbe woman less favored of fortune. Service is the price we pay for living, and so great is tho need of the world that it all tho women of the world worked every day we would go to bed every night with the world's work un done' "Hut is there as much marrying now?71 ".No, marriage ia leas easily entered into now that women are moro eelfrel:ant. Hut it is more of a matter of congratulation when a man wius a wife now. In the old days the woman had to marry somebody. aud I have often thought if 1 had ben a man then I should havo wanted to know that the girl that accepted me had refused several other men to assure me that tho matter of choice and selection had any thing to do with her acceptance, liutnow, as women are independent, self-snpoorting members of society, we can afford to have fewer matches and to marry for something besides a home. With tho new sense of self-respect has been developed in woman a consciousness of the sanctity of her own individuality and person, demanding a cor responding sanctity in marriage which tho church alono cannot give. "Under tho old dispensation, to the un derstanding of good religious people, the Bible itself taught tho sacrament of mar riage incorporated powers and privileges which if exercised by a man outside of marriage would send him to State prison. Hut we grow in nobility, responsibility, as we grow ln culture, though, because of the very sacredness of marriage, we take not onr vows lightly. We know that it is the natural condition in which men and women find the highest development as well as the purest happiness." "And what is your ambition forworaanl" "That she shall aolueve personal liberty, and that sho may attain a seuse of personal responsibility in that liberty as an instru ment in human service which will make hercapable of the highest usefulness. I would have her become rational, lose the idea of personal partisanship in the ability to sec a Question from all sides, and attain a wise tolerance in the exercise of broad human sympathy, which is woman's pre rogative." Are Women Tiresome? Dorothy Marfdox, in rhihvJclthla Times. I trust I shall not offend when I admit that I think the average man moro intelli gent than the average woman; yon under stand me, intelligent I mean in this sense, that he has upon the tip of his tougueideas that show he is keeping abreast with tho times. Docs ho deserve any credit for this? Certainly not. for whilo the woman is at home struggling with housekeeping and babies, hubby is deep in this discussion aud that, rubbing up nil day long against minds brighter than his own, perhaps, and catching each time something orig inal, something that starts a new train of thought and broadens out his mind. He comes home at night bubbling over with his pet theories, which ho would like to air, hut who is going to encourage him? Not tho fair one who has b?en lilt ting about all the alternoon paying calls, shopping, gossiping or is fagged to death because, she has had to play the part of nursery maid and cook all in one. Few men nre considerate enough to listen with patience to a rehash of feminine nothings that c&rry a tale of pleasure or paiu. It is such a beastly bore, and men do uot take kindly to being bored, even for love's sweet sake. I know it is a shame that the eilorts to please should seem to be a little one sided, but if they are what are you go iug to do about itf For my part, I get eo dreadly tired of the inanities of my sex that I am glad enough to brunch oft into other tonics, even if at times 1 find myself woofully beyond my depth. I am a good listener, and what 1 do not know I try to look as if 1 did, for I thoroughly enjoy the society of a bright-minded man., and it is not going to bo my fault if ho does not re turn the compliineut. Wpmen are given to platitudes. They repeat themselves, as it .were. Mothers insist upon talk ing eternally about their youngters. They fall into this habit with each other, and if it is not the babies, It is dress, servants and gossip, while the younger members of society dilate on their latest love atlairs. Von tart oil on a tan gent, and the chances hxp that you will not be understood. I iio not wonder that men get awfully tired of women. 1 do not won der that the club catches them every time, if they talk to their husbands as they do to each other. And how is this to he pre vented? For this is their train of thought, and they make no etlort to cultivate any other. In dicusaint this subject not lon azo 1 heard a very sharp-witted woman declare that men liked a feminine fool in fact, doted on the kittenish creature who hadn't enough mind to keep the ball of conversation on the roll for five minutes at a time. Nonsense. Why need a woman who saves her mind from going to need be less feminine! 1 cannot see the necessity for dropping any one of her cun ning little wavs simply bcause she has the cleverness to find out what the man of her choice likes, intellectually, and serves it nptohim in such a way that he begins to find her as companionable as the brethren and sweet enough withal to keep his heart in thraldom. The New Drest Reform Garmenft. The dress reformers of the Woman's Na tional Council have fully formulated tbeir plans for the utility costumes to bo adopted by progressive women who are tired of fashion's follies and vagaries. As it is the purpose to introduce these gowns to tbe world at the world's fair, members of the council in various parts of the country are I' 1 1 m The American Costume. getting them in readiness, anl occasionally a woman is found courageous enough to ap pear in public with the new outfit without waiting for support that comes with num bers, tieverai costumes are recommended by the council. One is called a Syrian dress, and consists of a blouse and very voluminous trousers fastened at tho knee but overhanging and reaching about half way to the ankle. The general appearance is similar to that of the costume now in uso in many girls' gym nnssums. Tho regular gymnasium dress is recommended an a house dress for busy women. Two others, of which representa tions are herewith given, seem to have preference among tbe enterprising ladies as street costumes. The first has a short waiet and short skirt, and appoars to be in tended nas o modification of the empire gown, now favored by fashion. The other l tilers from the ordinary street dress only in having a short, and narrow skirt, tho regulation length bringing it three or four Inches below tbe knee. Leggins, made of the material of the dress and reaching to tho knee, aro worn with both these street dresses. ' Fashion's Freaks. Red cloth driving capes are finished with triple shoulder capes of velvet and trim mod with black silk guipure lace and jet orna ments. The shoulders are long and eloping, and the sleeves, whioh aro wide as ever. 63em almost a continuation of the shoulder, eo carefully are they cut to elope down and out. , . The latest skirt sent over from Paris be longs to a costume in the trousseau of a fashionable bride, and consists of three skirts fitting smoothly at tbe top, with eaoh one flaring more widely than the one above, so that the eliect is very extended at the bottom. Chiffon appears again as an airy adjunct to many of the dressy afternoon and even ing toilets for this and the coming season. Although inexpensive in price, it is actual ly more costly than many grades of really handsome laoe. because it cannot be .cleaned, and because it needs such fre quent renewal. Of One thing the feminine buyer can be certain, and thutisthat oven though she piles on every color that she ever heard of and a fow more that she has never even dreamed of, she will not be considered too gaudily attired in these days,wben a rain bow would be but a pale and faded ghost in comparison with some of the gowns that flaunt themselves before our dedazzled vis ion. , For demi-srason wear are sot forth pretty capotes and toques, theso generally show ing a mixture of ribbon and velvet. Low crowned hats with wide projecting fronts and narrow turned-up backs remain in favor. Some of these have insertions or edgings of open work straw passementeries as a finish to th e brims. To wear with the now'plaided tailor gowns areblaok Spanish turbans of straw trimmed si in ply with tri colored ribbons matching the tartans. Tho Empire poke bonnets appear by units only, and aro fast retiring from the contest lor popularity. It will be most satisfactory if the great bugaboo, the hoop skirt scare, ends in tho same quiet failure. In the caso of an ngly or preposter ous mode, when announced as inevitable the best thing to do is to let it severely alone. To comment too much upon it, or to enter into crnsaues against it, is but to ad vertise it. and in a certain sense familiar-' izes the publio with tbe denounced artiole. Festoons of jet beads and fringe of jet spangles edge tiny bonnets. The bur spangles are in black and ail colors. A protty bonnet is made all of violet bur spangles, or spaugln burs, in rosettes and other groupings. Jet bird heads are on hats, and are tied around the long throat with velvet, perhaps used as an anchorage for the sailing bows and ends. Alsatian bows, by the way, aro not flat, as of yore; they have braced up to meet the new de mands upon them, and are fall of self assertion are even aggressive. The very small models in spring bonnets betoken a coming invasion of luxuriant tresses far exceoding the amount so long considered sufficient. Quite a mass of hair will be necessary in order to wear properly many of the new capotes and tiny princess bonnets, and the wonder in whether this spring shadow which falls before foretells the comming of the massive "double and twisted" chignon to be endured all summer this ugly coitfure which has already made its way into tho royal circles, appear ing at the Queen's last drawing room.
