HOTEL LOBBY GLEANINGS
K. S. HOLMES. OF THE AtJRICl LTUt
AL DEI'AHT.MCNT, IN" TOWN.
He Sil) Secretary . Wilson I Doing
3Iueli for the Farmers of the
Country Hotel Visitors.
E. S. Holmes, of Washington. D. C, an
attache of the Department of Agriculture,
is at the Hotel English. He has been con
nected with the department for about ten
years and declares that Secretary Wilson
who is at the head of the department, is
doing more for farmers than any other
secretary has done. Mr. Wilson is a prac
tical farmer himself and is not contented
with sitting down in his office and letting
his men do the work. He goes out over the
country a good deal and keeps in touch
with the farmers.
"They tell a story at the expense of our
department," said Mr. Holmes, "to the
effect that we have been trying1 to graft
trawoerries with milk-weed in order to
get a plant that will grow strawberries
and cream. Seriously, however, the de
partment is experimenting all the time.
It is due to the Department, of Agricul
ture, that the navel orange was given to the
public. The original tree which bore the
first seedless orange is still standin? in
the hothouse at Washington."
The Department of Agriculture gets out
a report of the crop conditions of the coun
try the 10th of every month. On the day
the report Is printed in Washington a
copy of it is mailed to every postmaster in
the country. Within a few days after the
reports are printed every farmer in the
country has the p-ivilege of rinding out
just what the crop conditions have been in
different parts of the country. Mr. Holmes
says the department has 2h,000 correspond
ents in different parts of the country. Each
of these is expected to send in a report
every month. Four men are kept traveling
about the country and when any unusual
condition is" reported one of these men is
sent there to investigate. Mr. Holmes says
his visit here is not due to any unusual
crop condition, however. Last summer when
the drought struck the corn belt in the Mid
dle West he came out to investigate and
frequently ran into Secretary Wilson, who
also came out to see what the conditions
we re. .
COL. R. i:. HATCH IN TOWN.
He Says He Has Lived In Hotels for
Col. R. E. Hatch, a veteran New Yorker,
Is in town. When the colonel comes to In
dianapolis the clerks in the particular hotel
in which he stays bestir themselves to
make him comfortable. The colonel usuaily
gets the spare bedroom wherever he goes.
He is so affable and good-natured and alto
gether so nice in his manner toward the
boys behind the desk that they love him.
"I have lived in hotels pretty much of the
time for forty years." said the colonel last
night, "anil 1 have seen some mighty
changes in my time." This time he is stay
ing at the Hotel English. Colonel Hatch is
engaged In a business that bring.- him to
lndianaM-lis about once a year. It is re
lated that about the only time he ever kept
house was when he hud a place a few doors
lrom Jay Gould on Fifth avenue. New York.
The colonel's family and the Gould family
were intimately acquainted. "I knew liefen
Gould when she was about ro high." re
marked the colonel, measuring the height
with his hand, "and a sweet chil 1 she was."
For five years before the war Colonel
Hatch was credit man in the mercantile
house of A. T. Stewart.

Several appointments arc expected In the
police department this morning. , The
Hoard of Safety may announce, it is stated,
the name of a bicycle patrolman to suc

two additional "bike" men to strengthen
Manning to-day becomes a detective to
succeed Martin M'Guff. who has been
transferred to the fire department. The
board is considering several applications
for Manning's place. It is the intention
to appoint a regular patrolman if possible.
A plate on the bicycle force Is regarded in
the nature of a promotion and the prelim
inary step towards becoming a detective.
It is desired by nine patrolmen out of ten,
but the ambitions of many are thwarted
on account of their size and weight. It Is
necessary that a "bike" man be not too
large or heavy.
The board announced several days ago
that the force of bieyclemen was to be in
creased, and purchased two extra bicycles
when the new consignment of wheels was
ordered. In the last year the duties of the
bieyclemen have so increased that the
overworked half-dozen now constituting
the force are kept busy almost night and
day. Two more men at least are needed,
and it is believed that the board may name
them to-day. It is likely that they will be
chosen from the regidar men and the
places of the regulars filled by outside ap-

Symbols on the Sidewalk.
Patrolmen Mackessy and Scribner, In the
northeastern part of the city, were much

Claimed for Women,' Club- that They
Stimulate Courtesy Among the
.Members Here and There.
There is but little change in the shape of
new dress skirts, but as to the fabric it
would stem almost impossible to make a
mistake in its fashioning, as the choice is
now practically without end, says the New
York Evening Post. Among the novel or
repeated fancies for the coming season are
smart little "Gibson girl" models formed of
lace, net and dainty .summer textiles in cot
ton and silk. Breton waists, with natty
bands of trimming crossing the front, in
graded horizontal lines from chest to belt;
French cuirass styles, heavily boned, close
ly fitted and trimmed a la militaire; Louis
coats, with very smart waistcoats formed
of satin brocade or of peau de soie, hand
somely embroidered or otherwise decorated;
simple but elegant Directoire corsages, with
cape-like collars and picturesque sleeves;
French round waists, with their sashes or
pretty chatelaine effects at the belt; new
Russian blouses, fastened on the shoulder
and under the arms; quaint nuns' waists,
with simple surplice olds from shoulder to
belt; also corselet. Empire, Du Barry and
Pompadour models, with short sleeves, for
full-dress wear, and so on,, ad infinitum.
Fashion has decreed that jewels need not
necessarily be extravagant, in kind and
price, but-they must be chic. So-called
pearls and opals lately purchased can only
be found to be imitations by the most ex
perienced experts. The jeweler calls these
"secondars'" stones. The chrysophrase is
one of them, so is the aquamarine. Topazes
and amethysts are much used in decorating
fine gold lorgnette chains, lace and hair
pins, and tiny chippings of emeralds, dia
monds and other precious gems are used to
enhance the effect of various fashionable
ornaments, the chipping" being used to
frame or outline tho various devices made of
these "secondary" stones. The pigeon-blood
ruby, the sapphire, emerald, opal and other
real gems are wonderfully duplicated
among glittering stones delicately faceted
and highly polished that come no further
than from our own mountains of Colorado.
Selecting the silks for gowns necessary
for the summer wardrobe is in these days
an artistic pleasure when textiles, quali
ties end designs make the unmade fabric
a thing of beauty. There Is this year shown
a wondrous choice of taffetas, India silks,
crepes de chine, plain and fancy faille, peau
de soie. Louisine satin and satin foulard.
All these are seen in every color of the
rainbow and a great many more colors that
were never in any rainbow, while even in
black and white melanges alone are ex
hibited novelties and effects innumerable.
The taffeta silks have had a very ques
tionable name; for many, indeed, most of
these weaves Jiave worn badly, and there
h.s been a very discouraging uncertainty
as to whether they would not. cut within a
fortnight after being made up. The more
reputable manufacturers and importers will
not warrant taffeta silks, and yet the fabric
is so beautiful that there are very few
women who are not willing to take the
chances, and consequently there is as great
a demand as ever for taffeta silks, with
peau de' sole as a very strong rival. The
expensive qualities of, taffeta are supposed
to be more durable, but even these are un
certain. The softer, very pliable weaves
are rather more to be relied upon, and thero
is a twilled variety that looks like the old
lashloned black silks which our grand
mothers selected for their "best" gowns
when it was not yet called taffeta. This
wears most satisfactorily both for dresses,
coats and skirts.
Waists of cream white crepe de chine or
India mull are tucked all over from neck to
belt with matching sleeves and made with
a slightly loose and full din front over
hanging a belt of real gold filigree or a
belie sash, with loops and long ends at the
back. On thesp waists are either diamond
shaped medallions of embroidery or tine
Venise lace set just below the butd, or long
points of Vandyke lace extend upward from
the belt, front and back. These waists are
fastened on the shoulder and under the
arm. leaving the tucks and trimming un
broken. Other waists of this variety are
fastened at the back.
Influence of Women's Clubs.
New York Tribune.
"One good thing about clubs," said the
clever woman, thoughtfully, "is that they
stimulate courtesy in women."
."Women don't need it," said the social
woman, plaintively. "But I should be
thankful to know of anything that would
stimulate courtesy in men."
"That's strange,"' said the clever woman.
"Evidently ir nil depends on the point of
view like other matters. In so much as
courtesy is concerned I would prefer to
have business dealings with twenty men
in a day than with one woman."
"Well, in society," observed the other, "I
would prefer to deal with fifty women than
with one man. Take a young girl, for ex
amplethe merest "bud, just emerged from
the calyx of the nursery. (I'm trving not
to mix my metaphors.) Well, she mav
have her little airs and vanities and
haughty ways, but if she has been taught
anything you can depend upon her to do
the correct thing; to answer your invitation
promptly and prettily, to arrive on time,
and to do her share of anything that is
expected in the way of dancing, talking,
music; in short, to help her hostess by
making herself as agreeable as possible.
Of course, some few are shy or incapable,
but you can see that they make an effort,
in most cases. And a woman who is ac
customed to social life will immolate her
self to any extent on the altar of propriety.
She may snub "impossible' people, or what
the English call 'detrimentals,' or she may
even be lacking in the sort of courtesy
which means kindness of heart; but she
will never do the unpardonable things sulk
in corners, neglect the ordinarv conven
tionalities, refuse to dance when she is
invited for that purpose all those things,
you know, which drive a hostess crazy."
"And you find that men in society do
"My dear, it Is one of the chief difficulties
of entertaining, especially with the younger
men. Some of them even fail to realize
the sanctity of a dinner engagement. They
will keep you waiting for a reply until it
is too late to find a substitute, or possiblj'

at the last moment. I assure you that

"Dili she cut. him?"
"No; that's the trouble! Young men are
too much needed in society to be treated a
they deserve. At a dance the hostess is
nervous every moment lest her most popu
lar men should fall victims to extreme
fatigue, and stand looking- on languidly
while the girls sit without partners. And
if a man does not get the partner he wants
for a. cotillon or at di'iner positively you
can do nothing with him:"
"It is simply an aggravated form of self
ishness." said the clever woman, "or a
constitutional lack of conscience. The dis
courtesies of women are of an entirely dif
ferent type. Apart from the . street-car
fiends of both sexes. I find that it is in the
business world that women sin the most
against 'sweetness and light.' "
"()h. In business thy get tired and
"It's not that altogether. Women have
not yet outgrown th" sense of novelty in
business life, ami they take on a pose! They
try to be so very businesslike that they're
afraid to b- hum.h. They think it is quite
the right thins to be just a little brutal.
The other day I found a young girl crying
over a note from a woman's exchange com
mittee She explained that what hurt hr
was nut so much their rejection of her knit
shawl and her peanut candy as the cold,
abrupt manner of the communication. She
felt as if her things had been kicked out.
Afterward I showed her a 'declined with
thanks' letter from an editor, and she said
it must be almost a pleasure to be 'turned
down' by such a polite niuii!"
"Ah. yes!" said the social woman; "it's
the manner that counts. I remember spend
ing some days at a big woman's dormitory
at the exposition. The women in the
office were like so m.iiiy Gordons. They
looked at you with a stony glare, and
when they wanted to find out whether you
were a stockholder or a transient guest,
the way they snapped out 'stock or tran
sient?' made you feel as if you were in
reality a mere homeless tramp asking for
charity. I almost expected to be sent away
with what Mr. Flynt calls a 'poke out." "
"Yes, I'm afraid women make too much
of a little brief authority, at times. We all
remember the church guild tyrant; the
mother in Israel.' I don't really know at
this time whether the type has died out or
is still flourishing."
"Oh! she's flourishing still; I know her!"
exclaimed the social woman, shrugging her
shoulders. "Only last week she sent my
daughter home in tears from a meeting of
the Altar Society."
"Strange people don't learn that it
doesn't pay to be rude or unkind!" ob
served the clever woman. "But here we
are in the old groove. Every one is more
or less objectionable, except you and me!
Take another cup of tea. It will strength

A Chapter on Sandwiches.
New York Evening Sun.
Simplicity itself seems to be expressed in
a sandwich. It answers for the most un
pretentious of repasts, yet sandwich mak
ing is not so simple a task as it seems. In
one household where in the weekly absence
of the maid of all work sandwiches are
usually chosen to settle the Sunday night
supper question it occurred to someone to
note the time needed for the work. The
process of cutting and spreading enough
sandwiches for ten persons occupied exactly
one hour and ten minutes. This was allow
ing a liberal number for each, to be sure,
but it was also taking no account of the
time used in preparing the sandwich filling.
Egg sandwiches are deserving of a place
near the head of the sandwich list. The
materials needed in their construction are
to be found in every properiy equipped lar
der, and, therefore, they can be prepared
without special marketing. The bread, the
butter and the eggs must be used, but the
seasonings may be varied to suit either
tasto or circumstances. Boil the eggs long
enough to be certain the yolks are mealy.
These yokes should be mashed while still
warm, plenty of butter being added to
them. If, however, they are not mashed
until cold, melt the butter before putting it
in. Chop the whites and add them together
with some flnely-mlnced pickles or olives.
Add salt, paprika, mustard and just suf
ficient oil and vinegar to moisten. Spread
graham or white bread with butter, then
with the mixture. Trim Ue sandwiches
neatly, leaving them square or cutting them
The more complex a sandwich is the bet
ter. At one time all that was asked or ex
pected was a slice of cold meat sheltered
between two slices of buttered bread. If a
little prepared mustard was spiead over the
cold ham, tongue or chicken well, but if not
the sandwich was still a fair representative
of its class. The sandwich of to-day is
sometimes difficult of identification. Re-
duced to its component parts, it may prove
to be ham sandwich, but how far removed
from the old kind. In the first place, the
ham in this modern Instance is probably
chopped and mixed with an equal quantity
of told cooked veal, also finely chopped. It
is then seasoned with vinegar, a drop or
two of Tobasco sauce and a little horse
radish and finally moistened with mayon
naise dressing to the right consistency for
spreading. Perhaps tomato catsup is used
in the place of the horseradish or perhaps
the ham is minced, moistened with mayon
naise and used without any of the other in
gredients, but in any case its resemblance
to its railroad prototype is sufficiently re
mote. Between finely chopped pickle and most
sandwich mixture there is a marked af
finity. The ham sandwich is improved by a
pickle addition, and by its acid even cold
cooked sausage may be turned into an
appetizing sandwich filling. One form of
cheese sandwich makes use of pickles, al
though olives may be substituted. Grate
the cheese and add salt, paprika and mus
tard in the proportion of one teaspoontul
each to a cupful of cheese. Moisten with
vinegar and anchovy paste and add the
chopped pickles. Spread on well-buttered
slices of white bread.
Very good is the mixture of chopped
water cress,' chopped hard-boiled eggs and
either French or mayonnaise dressing.
This may be used with white or Graham
Nut meats chopped and moistened with
mayonnaise dressing are well-established
members of the sandwich filling list. Even
better, however, is the mixture of chopped
hickory-nut meats and cream cheese. Thi-s
may be spread on biscuit or on buttered
white bread. For another variety of sand
wich filling mix together equal quantities
of cream cheese and Rochefort. Season
with paprika and rub smooth with cream.
For afternoon tea the sandwiches should
be very small and should always be served
on a dainty doily in a suitable dish or plate.
The apple sandwich has been a .favorite
this season. This consists of a delicate slice
of apple between very thin slices of brown
bread spread with mayonnaise.
Of fruit sandwiches one jnf the most easi
ly prepared is that which makes use of !
bananas. Slice as many bananas as will
be needed, add some rum and let them
stand until they have become flavored.
Spread dainty slices of white bread with
cream, to which has been added enough
honey to sweeten. Lay the bananas in
place as the filling.

New York Evening Sun.
The French laundress who has never
heard of her fellow-countryman. M. Hugues
Le Roux, much less of his recent lecture
charging American women with gross ex
travagance compared with French women,
gave testimony to precisely the same thing
the other day. "Ah," sighed the laundress,
with an accent impossible to reproduce,
"we may save more money in America,
but think how much more we spend over
here. In France, if a man and his wife
earn enough to be neat and clean and well
fed they are content. Their work and the
knowledge that they do it well are enough.
But here, so soon as a man and his wife
begin to earn money, they try to apethe
rich. No longer are they content with a
clean kitchen, with spotless fioor and well
scrubbed tables and chairs. There must be
a "parlor," with lace curtains, plush-covered
furniture and mantel ornaments and mclo
deon, and it doesn't in the least seem to
matter whether these things are tidy or
not, so long as they are there. As fast as
more money Is earned it goes in more
things in imitation of the well-to-do. Not
only is all the extra money spent, but the
old-time contentment is replaced by a vain
ambition to ape that which is unworthy of
aping." In vain did the American into
whose ears this plaint was poured reply
that the unworthy ambitions would, in
time, give way to worthy ones that the
plush-covered furniture and lace curtains
and melodeon would be succeeded by a
longing for books and pictures. The trans
planted French laundress merely shook her
head and sighed: "In France one is con
tent with little; here, no matter how much
one has, one wants more."
On the Shelf.
Margaret Deland, in Harper's Bazar.
This is the time of the real growing pains
of life, but they come, not to those yho
grow, but to those who are outgrown. Trob
ably they are at their worst when we have
just reached the shelf, but do not know it.
It is a period of helpless struggle; we are
bewildered and very much hurt because
some fine day the young fry smile good
naturedly at each other over one of our
wise sayings and then go their own gait.
It is their way of saying: "You are on the
shelf, dears; now don't bother us!" The
blank and angry astonishment of the
shelved at this frank information breaks
out in vehement denial of that fact. Like
the borrower of the kettle who declared
that it was cracked when he got it, whole
when he sent it back, and thac he never
borrowed the old kettle, anyway, to the
shelved cry out that the shelf Is the wi?et
place in the world, that they are not on
it. and that there is no shelf, anyway!
Of course, such denial is perfectly useless,
yet it seems to be one of the ways'in which
Ve human creatures meet this dreadful
moment of revelation. There are only three
ways to meet It. and we must choose one or
the other of them. The first is this ut de
nial of the shelf a course- often taken ly
faihers and mothers even while they are
reaching out and pulling up pome reluctant
child to sit beside them in tne dtit and
gloom. This way makes daily life just
about as miserable as it can be apart
from absolute sin. which is, of course, en
tirely another matter.
