1894, BO" KMAKING. Cloth I indium supei scded the boards couicuonJy employed about 1S31. Books wen1 printed in Paris from ste reotyped plates by Didjt in 179s. In 1274 a very finely written Bible was sold for M marks about $ 170. The first English paper mill was set tip in 1470, but no book was printed on Ihiglish paper nntil 1495. Many of the early wood cuts employ ed in books wore painted over by hand after the printing had been done. In 1873 two copies of Gutenberg's Latin Bible were sold. One on vellum brought 3.400; one on paper, '2,600. The work of tho flr.it bookbinder con sisted iu fasteuiiiK .?! s of wood, metal or parchment to;,'.-; h-: r with clamps, clasps, hinges or vorila. French bindings ex?el in taste and finish, English in solidity and strength, American iu jrenoral excellence and ra pidity of workmanship. The Tartars f ormerly made their books of some rip Ties of I f rlc The leaves were long and narrow, anil the letters were white on a black ground. The scroll work of the early Bibles is sometimes vr-rj b: -autif jl. It is usually broajrht up between the two columns, and turnin g ar top an 1 bottom passed around the ends of the printed mattr. The first bonk print d by machinery was '"12 la to on bar hs Physiology, "which came from th- press ai 1M7.

To bo absolutely swagt-r tho necktie and. hatband, n.;;?; be an exact match. Ho pays tho summer . girl. Not in so many words, but iu practicing what she silently proaohe-s. If the necktie hap pens to be da' k blue, with diagonal whito stripes running in opposite directions and forming little diamond shajjed plaids, it is the correct thing to wear a hatband exactly like it. Of course if there isn't something a bit different from the general. ty of plain solid col ors in either it is hardly noticeable that they are alike a'ld tho correct thing. A peculiar;..-.- oi. i.nglish women is the wearing of elaborate coiffures. No where is so much f alsa hair worn as in England. It is made up in all sorts of ingenious ways to be pimiL-d on bodily. The fashion of parting tho hair and wearing the little curl in tho middle of the forehead s: prevalent heio is not seen there. Instead the lino frizzes worn by the Princ-ss of Wales and her daugh ters are imitated by mo.-1 c-f the sex- A. Mexican Iunorattou.

A sister of the late Mr. Spurgeon preached twice recently to crowded con gregations at the handsome church in Hampstead Road in connection with the service. Her manner is impressive, and she ber-rs a personal resemblance to her eminent brat her.

Tapeka Capital. ' j Furman university, ti e great Baptist i institution at ( ireenvil le, S. C, has I opened its doors to worn :a students de- tiring to pursue special ttu.lies or to itand for degrees. American Steam Lauidry, 113 West iUte&tj tele, II, HERE IS THE LATEST ADVANCE. I July Florence Itjtio Would Have Cooi panie of "Women olunteerf.. Lady Florence Dixie finds matter for an article of considerable length in a Loudon paper advocating the organiza tion of a corps of women volunteers. She begins by saying that the pro posal has met with many women's ap proval (?) and then proceeds to outline her scheme. She advocates the estab lishment of institutions where would be "volunteers' could be physically train ed into good gymnast.! and l a able to Bwim, ride, run, march, shoot and t u dure fatigue. Hand in hand with these subjects should go instructions in cook ing, nursing, ambulance work and man ual skill in tailoring and bootn.akf t.g, a knowledge, however rude, of these two last named accomplishments being at times most serviceable and useful. "I am totally opposed, " com inaes the paper, "to the formation of a volunteer corps for women either merely as a medical one,' a lighting one or an am bulance one. My idea ot a volunte er coris of women is one whose members in time of national need could volun teer for all and every kind of service and perform the same efficiently whether it be fighting, medical work, ambulance work, nursing or anything else, and the unity of this volunteer corps should bo firm and strong knitted by the indissolu ble tie of esprit tie corps, which would build it into a powerful organization. "It should be the great national school for working class girls and wom en who could depend upon receiving a technical education if desired therein. It should be the national club for wom en of all classes; it should bo able to furnish in case of need skilled work women in every grade; it should have its branches in every town or outside every town, and it should have it- great central institution, its hall of liberty, iu London. "The corps might be known as tho United Corps of Women Volunteers, and it could be classified in companies under different names, certain duties being apportioned to each. Thes i com panies could furnish whatever the na tional need required, trained an 1 dis ciplined bcdicK of vomeu beinst forth coming in any emergency to supply the service sought. " Before Lady Dixie announces her uni form she paves the way witu an anath ema against modern dress, and then introduces her "neat Norfolk shaped tunic, reaching to just above the knees; knie'tt ib.icio rs ai d gaiters to natch, the gaiters to bo substituted for brown tanned top boots, lacing up the entire front to the knee, where much riding is necessary. "For head dress I would recommend a colored cap, Tarn o' Shanter or Carl ist in shape, a plain round straw hat in hot weather or helmet if deemed more suitable. And to harmonize with such a costume woman's appalling headgear must be abandoned. No head can be truly comfortable or neat which is doom ed to wenr the present day erections and combinations of false and real hair, frizzes and fads, all pinned together in bewildering confusion. " Having thus annihilated the present coiffures, a woman is urged "either to cut her hair short or wear it in the King Charles fashion adopted by the cavaliers, or if she prefers to keep it very long wind it in a neat coil behind her head. " Lady Dixie admits that the move ment is radical, and that "there are difficulties to bo encountered, sneers and jeers to be lived clown, satires to be re futed, converts to be made," but she is sanguine of ultimate success and con nects the arrival of the women volun teers with great national re-forms ami all the rest of it. Serving ElackberrieH. A pretty way to serve blackberries with cream is to pick fresh, ripe ber ries over carefully. Heap them in a glass bowl and set on ice, serve on sau cers, with little bowls of supc and pitchers of cream, allowing each person at the table to sugar the fruit to suit tasta Blackberries may be served with me ringue as follows: Place a quart of ripo blackberries in a bowl, sprinkle with powdered sugar, beat the whites of li eggs with half a cup of sugar and spread over the berries. Set ou ice until very cold. Blackberry flummery is made by plac ing a pint of ripe blackberries in a saucepan with a pint of water; let boil slowly without stirring for 10 minutes, moisten 2 tablespoouinls of cornstarch with cold water, stir into the berries, let thicken, take from the fire and add half a teacup of sugar. When cool, servo with sugar and cream. Minnie liauk Decorated. Mine.

AN AFRICAN PRINCE. Recalled Troiii an African College to ItulA Over Hi Tribe. A dark story of consanguinal duplic ity, treachery and murder is that told by Princo Thomas Besolow, an African of royal blood who is now a student at Williams college, but who has been called by his people to return to his na- PRINCE THOMAS BESOLOW. tivo wilds r.nd rule over them. No one would think Thomas a prince at first glance, but ha admits it himself, mid there is no r.eed of looking further for proof. Here is the story he tells: "My father, King Aruiah, son of Zo dimah, who once held the supremacy in the Vei hexarchy, died and left the sov ereignty of his people to the youngest son of his first wife, Jas.sa Quey, daugh ter of the Oolah people and sister of King Mambruro, the great warrior and plunderer, before whom the African tribes trembled, which son is myself, Solow Bey, or Bey Solow Besolow as Anglicized. "After my father's death my uncle, Ifualusaw, usurped my rights, for at that time I was young and inexperi enced. I saw one of my sisters stran gled, and that, too, with her child. My uncle and his follow plotters squandered my father's wealth until tho kingdom sank from power iato poverty. "I planned secretly with my relatives to bring my uncle to account, but while I was debating what steps to take I met the Rev. Thomas Halley Roberts of the Vei people, an African and a graduate of tho Lincoln university, Chester coun ty. Pa. Ho advised me to come to Amer ica to be educated, and I decided to do so. " Now it- has happened that Besolow's people have rebelled against the contin uance of tho rule of his usurping uncle tmd desire the return of their rightful sovereign, anel unless the young man is drawing on his imaginatitm for his facts he will soesn be ruler of a considerable Flice of the tlark continent. His uncle, it seems, has got frightened, tot), and joins in tho request for his return, so Besolow will not have any opposition from him to fear. Tho prince says he will probably go back in August or September and will make short visies to France, England and Germany on the way. Ho is a very good talker for mi African and has lec tured in Bo.-toti, Springfield and New York. He excuses his good English on the plea that he was educaceel in child hcod by a missionary.
