If Debs was paid a salary to agitate, no one will deny that he haj earned it Even- the stockholders of the Pullman company are tired of Pallman'a obsti nacy. The trouble with Pullman ia that he wanted to pay good times dividends and hard times wa?. Prendekoast if he really should be hung' Friday, can console himself with the fact that it can't b much hotter there. Governor Alt eld's message yester day to Mayor Hopkins in reference to preserving order has a strangely sane sound. The plan of arbitrating the periodical quarrels between laborers and employers teems to meet with favor with every one except G. M. Pullman. The Populist state officials who low ered the assessment on Pullman cars, are about the only friends Pullman has whose constancy ha stood the test. If all the trades unions in Chicago go out today according to agreement, it means simply they will stay out till they pet too hungry and then they will go back. George Gould appears to think, "when in Rome do as limie does," holds good in yachting. All the English yachts that have visited this country have been beaten. The ways and means committee rec ommends non-concurrenca in the senate amendment, whether frmi honosty or obstinacy each one may determine for himself. Though Mr. Cleveland's prompt ac tion was c-omtnen labia, Mr. Harrison evi dently forgot that just no v it is heresy to all parties to see any good in the admin istration. The strike has not been without its at tendant pleasure to Mr. Cleveland. By it he has been enabled to ive free rein to his penchant for throwing oil prolix messages. The latest judge to send editors to jail for criticising his actions is Judge Good rich of Waco, Texas. There seems to be a mistaken notion gaining prevalence in this country that judges are not infalli ble. Whes it appeared that Gompers was going to join in the strike the labor lead ers talked about the million men he had under his control; now that he 'a coun seling against it they speak of his small following. From the number of pajple who are willing to quit good jobs fcud strike for something that doesn't affict them at all one would scarcely think we were in the milst of hard times but rather that people had more money than they knew what to do with. The couferrtes of the house on th tariff bill are Wilson, Mi MilUn, Turner and Montgomery, Democrats, and lieed, Burrows and Payne, Republicans. It can be safely st.it d if they have their way the tariff bill will goon bear some re semblance to the Wilson measure. The devilish work of wreaking trains which ia the inevitable concomitant of every strike has commenced. No matter how much the leaders of tho strike con demn such actions they cannot relieve themselves of the dreadful responsibility of having made the occasion for them. The allegation made it tome quarters that Grand Master Sovereign, of the Kaigbts of Labor, has called out one mil lion men is a ludicrous mistake or a fal sification. There la scarcely one-tenth of a million men in the Ktdght of Labor. The last annual report tf th Knight of Labor showed somewhere between 100, 000 and 200,000 members, most of them In Pennsylvania and adjacent mining re gions. At one time the Knights of Labor was an immense organisation, but after the Missouri Pacific strike its member ship fell oft rapidly.

OLIVE HARPER'S OPINION OF GIRLS "AND BABIES. err Mo.e1a He pen Is ITpon the Flimsy Fineness of Their Clothes The Hress mskrr'i Art Is Also Effectual, wd Bo Is Sweet Modesty. Special Correspondence. New Yor.it, July 5. It is no wonder that the press runs over every year with sayings good, bad and indifferent about the summer girl, for even a woman is forced to admit that the "summer girl" id next door to divinity. The warm days seem to add a new bloom to her com plexion, a languishing air to her man ner, and her light aid delicate summer g ib chimes in so well with the girl her self and her surroundings that she be- t I y - ' 'i i 1 1 DAIKTY EVF.KIVG DKESS. comes almost a new creature ethereal, delicate and altogether charming. Tha reason babies aro so swet t is mos-tly due to the filmy fineuess of their dainty clothes the lace, tlie ribbon and the misty nebulsB of the sheer lavns and muslins iu whi-jh their tender littia bodies are inwrapped. Then whtu the warm days come, and the girls can don the fame sheer and fine textures and adorn themselves with hict-s and rib bons, the girls can look almost as en chanting as tlie babies. The younger they are the prettier they look. The nineteenth century dressmaker, too, has something to do with the mat ter. She knows jest what to do and how to do ic io enhance the beauties and hide the deficiencies and make her subject appear perfection. Sweet mod esty is tho keynote this reason in even ing attire. There are no more of those vulgar and offensively k.w cut bodices, neither for matcnr beauties nor for young girls, and the gir's are the gain ers in every sense by the new regime. A very girlish and pretty party gown for a young girl to wear at a swell co tillon soon to be given at Newport has just been finished. Tho dress itself was cf figured taffeta, the groundwork op aline, with dark blue stripes and clots. The skirt was dancing length and had a gathered ruffle of pale blue crepe de china around tho bottom and a tablier outlined on the skirt by a narrower ruffle of the same. The waist was a bebe cut quite high in the neck. Around the arms was plaited lace in form of a figaro. At the waist was a draped belt of ciel blue surah, with an endless bow. Another bow, with ends made of the same surah, was placed across the bust. The sleeves were puffed and made of the crepe de chine, and the sleeves were both drawn up to a scallop on the shoul ders and held by a crinkled rosette of velvet ribbon three shades darker than the crape. The v.-hole gown was a sym phony in blue. Gloves for evening wear are all in the mousquetaire shape, but the tints generally match the colors of the dress, though suede and cream color are often worn. These two colors can be worn with any colored gown and are there fore quite economical. There are very pretty and durable long gloves shown in silk and some that aro silk plaited. The silk plaited ones feel the best and coolest. They are cut and made in the most careful manner, and all the finders are of the proper size. This is the first season that they have been made so as to give perfect satisfaction in that re- ' f . - THE NEWEST COIFFL'RES. cpect. The silk and plaited gloves do not cost anywhere near the price of glazed kid or suede, and so one can have three f airs instead of one. The new styles of hairdressing h ive brought back the old fancies in earrings. Long pendants of the antique modes are quite the thing now, and the long de spised hoop and "drop" earrings are cow Been. They are quaint and pretty. The hair is dressed in many ways, the features being studied in most cases be fore a style is adopted. For the very young ladies the categan braid is t est liked, but it is loosely braided and tied with ribbon at the nape of the neck. A fillet of ribbon ending- in a stiff looped bow oa top of the head is a fitting ccra plement to a coiffure of this kind for evening dress. Olive IIarfko. Ufc Mi '? A NEW PRODUCT. An Artificial Sirup Evolved From Beet Scear. . Special Correspondence. Wasihsgtox, July 5. The chemist's cunning has evolved from beet sugar an entirely new product known 83 "arti ficial fruit sugar" which promises to be of exceptional interest to all persons con cerned in fruit preserving now a tre mendous interest in this country. Ac cording to a description furnished by the American consul general at Frank fort, Mr. Frank H. 2Iason, "the process consists, apparently in the inversion of beet sugar at a certain stage of its man ufacture by chemical treatment into what ia technically designated lavu lose, which is chemically identical with the natural fruit sugar developed greater or lesa degree in most kinds of fruit. "It differs both in taste and chemical composition from cane sugar, is a limpid white sirup of great density, containing from 75 to 76 per cent of sugar, and possesses, among other valuable quali ties, a rich, fruity flavor and the capac ity to remain fluid and free from granu lation for an indefinite period, notwith standing its high degree of density. It Is well known that ordinary white sirup containing 65 per cent or more of sugar crystallizes and forms granular deposits, and when used for preserving fruit often candies' to such a degree that-the pre serves have to be recooked to restore the desired smoothness and fluidity. The new artificial fruit sugar, on the contra ry, remains smooth and fluid under all conditions. But the quality which chief ly determines its commercial value ia its power to assimulate, develop and pre serve the natural aromatic flavor of the fruit to which it is applied as a preserv ing material. Confectioners, fruit pack ers and skilled housekeepers who have tested it quite extensively during the past year in the preservation of cherries. strawberries, peaches and various other fruits pronounce it far superior for such purposes to any other form of sugar. "Finally it corrects the tendency so common in fruits preserved in ordinary sugar, to soften and assume a crude, sugary flavor, which not only injures the color and appearance of the pre serves, but renders them cloying and disagreeable to the taste." It is also said to be largely entering into nse al ready in Euroxe for the "perfecting" of wines and manufacture of liquors and is much better than sugar for the mak ing of lemonade. "So far as known its use has not been extended, even experi mentally, to the United States." James Connolly. A RISING REPUTATION. Joseph 21. Choate, the Leader and Wit of tlie New York liar. Special Correspondence. New York, July 5. Joseph H. Choate is likely before the close of the New York constitutional convention to be known to a much larger public than his fame has hitherto reached. Ho has long been a familiar f gure to the bench and bar of New York city and at many JOSEPH H. CHOATE. dinner tables, public and private, while his reputation is widely known among lawyers the country over. He shares with Mr. Evarts the reputation of a wit, and droll stories float from the quiet rooms of the Bar association as to the sayings and doings of these two men. Mr. Choate is not always careful to count upon the probable effect of his sallies, but he is seldom malicious. He wears a certain quiet smile when about to smite a friend or an adversary be neath the fifth rib, and those that know him open their ears expectantly when they see that smile hovering about his mouth. The latest witticism of Mr. Choate floating through legal circles was aimed at his friend and brother lawyer, Colonel John J. McCook. Colo nel McCook is a member of a law iirm famous for its operations in reor ganizing financial corporations. He was also one of the counsel for the prosecu tion In the case of Professor Briggs of Presbyterian fame. When an echo of the Briggs case was at length heard in the recent general assembly of the Northern Presbyterian church and Colo nel McCook's name again came up in connection with the matter, Mr. Choate said: "I never could understand why Mc Cook went into that case unless he ex pected to break up the Presbyterian church and reorganize it. " No portrait can quite convey the ripe ness, geniality, humor and tolerance of Mr. Choate's face. It is a good, round, ruddy face, with a round beak of a nose that in extreme old age will overshadow the mouth and threaten the full, round chin. The cheeks are ound, and their convexity increases with his broad f-mile. The head is round, and so is the forehead that fronts it. Then there is a pleasing rotundity beneath his waist coat. A family nearly allied to Mr. Choate treasures a photograph of the man as a youth of 20 or thereabouts. It is taken from a daguerreotype, and it shows him a handsome, clear eyed, smiling young fellow clad in the some what picturesque fashion of the day. It is an altogether charming face and tne that any man might be glad to Lave xx the gallery of his ancestors. E. N.

WYCK0FF, SEAMANS & BENEDICT, The Decline of the Goudols In 'Venice It would be expected, of course, that no Way exists to get about in Venice ex cept by gondola. This is nowadays an error. There is no spot in Venice which cannot be reached by dry land. There are now in the city 350 to 400 bridges, and it is possible To cross the canals on foot at almost any point. Those who do not wish to do this can get in a steam boat and go from one end of the Grand canal to the other. There are frequent stations, the boats run every four min utes, and the fare is only 2 cents. The gondola thus has been nearly driven out of business. The residents of the city go about on foot or on steam boat. They have no time to be lazily rowed from place to pdace by a gondo lier. It has come about, therefore, that there are much fewer gondolas in the service than formerly, and what there are have less to do. Their chief occupa tion is to transport visitors who have only a few days to stay, and who wish to tell their friends when they go home that they have ridden in a gondcla, There is considerable business on moon light nights, but in daytime very few boats are in use. Tho gondolier is not the romantic per son that fancy paints him either. He is a very ordinary Italian, a poorly clothed beggar, who always wants more money than his legitimate fare and talks about his pour boire or extra eli ink money dur ing the entire ride. Philadelphia Tele graph. Able Financiering. One of Spokane's bank presidents has a habit of taking an airing each even ing on the front end of a street car, ab sorbing ozone and throwing off the cares of business while chatting with the motorman. The other night he met a genius and his match. The story was too good to keep and finally reached The Tribune, which publishes it as follows: After the usual exchange of courtesies the motorman said: "Mr. Blank, you consider yourself a financier, I suppose. " "Yes, " replied the banker, "I guess I am, or I could not hold my job. " "Well, you don't know anything about financiering, " the motorman made bold to state. "But my 'boss' (re ferring to the president of the street car company) is a first class financier, he is. Why, do you know that every Sunday he advertises for a servant, and Monday 20 or 30 girls ride out to his house near the end of the line to get the place, but find madam can't see them, so they ride back and repeat the journey several times before they are finally told that the old girl has decided to stay awhile. Now that's financiering. Fifty cents paid out for advertisments and f 8 or $ 9 taken in for car fares to swell the an nual dividends of the boss' company. " The banker saw the point, told the story on his friend, and the "boss" is looking for that particular motorman with blood in his eye. Conrageoaa. Lord Thurlow had one of the bad habits of hia time. He swore terribly. One day he was accosted by a young clergyman on the sands of Scarborough who, without any special introduction and with but a brief preface, asked him for the vacant living of Spaxton, which was in Lord Thurlow's gift. "Go about your business," said his lordship, with the accompaniment of several large oaths. "But I won't go about my business," replied the intrepid divine, "and, what's more, it becomes my duty as a clergy man to reprove you for swearing!" "Oh, indeed!" exclaimed Lord Thur low, knitting his heavy eyebrows, "and yoti reprove me, do you? Hang it! I see you are a good fellow. You shall have the living. " They shook hands over the bargain, and Mr. Jacques became vicar of Spax ton. Mcreover, he became Lord Thur low's adviser and good friend. Youth's Compani om fally tlas 5IeetiDE.

LOCAL DEALER, In the Uarcin, irauiafcctw. There is a certain amount of mystery connected with a harem; therefore we were greatly pleased when its occupants sent to a.-sk the ladies of our party to pay them a visit. We were shown into a smaller reception room, and they came to us. Their appearance was disappoint ing, for they were neither beautiful nor well dressed. Their costumes were of flowered muslin, and their headdresses were quite devoid of ornament. We heard afterward that in tho heat of summer the Damascus ladies lay aside their richer dresses of cloth and silk and their jeweled turbans for this lighter and more commonplace attire. Conversation between us was impossible, for they know no English, and we were equally ignorant of Arabic, and the only interpreter at hand was our local drago man, who of course might not be ad mitted to their presence. In another house that we visited, alO through the good will of the vice con sul, the oriental charm was somewhat broken by our hosts appearing in Euro pean dress instead of their national flowing robes, but none the less did they receive us with true eastern courtesy. They showed us, with evident pride, a quantity of priceless old Persian china, which, being a valued heirloom, rarely saw the light, but which had been brought out for a banquet on the pre ceding day. Equally splendid was a third palace, but it was splendor in de cay, for the owner was bankrupt and the house deserted. Grass was growing between the slabs of marble" pavement, the water was stagnant in the "foun tain, mosaics had fallen from their set ting in the walls, and the whole build ing was pervaded by an air of desola tion. That this had been a home of wealth was manifest from there being within its precincts a Turkish bath. On this also the seal of time was set, and the series of rooms, each for its special purpose of heating, douching, cooling or resting, were in a state of dilapida tion. Good Words. JEvlls of xigrht snoes. A prominent physician who was much consulted by women used always to say, after hearing the symptoms de scribed, "Madam, allow me to see your foot, please. " There were often indig nant protests, but he always refused to treat a woman whose shoes we-re too tight for her, as tight shoes interfered with the circulation of the blood to such an extent that it was impossible under such conditions for any remedy to act prompt ly. He usually ordered two sizes larger than ordinarily worn. Fortunately wom en seem to have reached a realizing sense of what they have Buffered from short shoes, and the shops are filled with long, narrow shoes, which give a woman's foot an elegant appearance, and which are so comfortable. Possessing a weak ness for fine shoes, I take more than an ordinary interest in displays of footwear. Cincinnati Enquirer. . Profit! of Grant's "Menoirs." Never was there a more brilliant suc cess following such labor. No book writ ten in this country has ever returned such a large reward. At the time of this writing the Grant family has received from the royalties paid by the publish ers of the work over $440,000, and the sale still goes on. The cheaper edition, which the publishers are now about to bring out, may result in another phenom enal sale, so that it is within the range of possibility that the "Memoirs" may yield in the neighborhood of $750,000 to General Grant's lieirs. McClure's Magazine. Aberdeen's Possibility. The Earl of Aberdeen, viceroy and governor general of Canada, is liable at fmy moment to be ousted from his seat in the house of lords and deprived of his peerage and es;;te by the rerppearance of his elder brother, who vanished in a most mysterious fashion years ago, dur ing a voyage from New York to Brazil, from a vessel where he was serving as sailor before the mast. Notwithstanding all efforts to discover a trace as to what has become of him, no clew has ever been obtained, nor is there any certainty tf his death. Montreal Star.
