votefl exclosWclr to I ho use of Iho family, used on
K7 fcertaln dajri or boon by tho women and, on others
H &hj the men. These baths are heated nrlih hot air,
HKM'lyirftlch comes from a larRO inrnaco altuatbd at qulto
KH'ad!sUnce'from thohooio, and 'fed by wood and
H;, charcoal. The heat Is carried In imch a way as
H&'llot to make moist atmosphere, and tho air In the
K:l different rooms Is hot bat dry, which Is not so tin
HL 'pleasant and snffocatlnif as the so-called Turkish
HfVbatui here. Tho three rooms being passed, the
HKn. ladles go Into tho last, whero thcro Is a fountain of
BM) perfumed water and whero the last part ot the
Ht f!cleanslnjrtkcs place. The baths In tho palace at
BSj ''KIDolrae-baktf.hce, on tho Boiphorus, aro very beau
Hctirnl, but. It would require a vplumoo properly
Hv'- descrlbo them, Tor tho luxury ot a Tnrklsh house Is
BHfr centred 'in the loth, and there Is where tho people
F-' -,Becra most to cn.loy themselves.
Hg Just outside tho limits of Constantinople, up In
HB! Mtw Golden Horn, Is Aa-Hammain, u bath frc
Jquentedby many ladles of tho highest position,
Hrft Bot because they Tiavo no baths of their own, but
HE-V because they are auro to meet their friends thorc
Hs'Tflthout restriction and have a good time. It has
Bfc.Y also always been a groat place for mothers to take
HRv v their marriaire-ble daughters and othor mothers to
:,',. 'IfO to c&ooae a fcrldo for their Rons, and as wives
Ktf', 'ate not chosen for their mental but physical beau
BfvV ties alone, certainly thla Is tho place to choose,
Bv-'Vt jwhere leauty Is qnlte unadorned, and therefore of
&V this bath we will upeak.
HBt'r ' The ladles arrive, each one attended by her own
nV'IorBonaI servant and another who bears a very
B.,V Substantial lunch basket unci a handsome gold
HbHbI' bordered bathing wrap. Tho eunuchs remain ont
Hji 'aide or go away and come back at the hour the
Bh W "bath is euded, aa It occupies several hours.
H lis First the ladles are divested of their clothing and
Hi",' receive a crape sheet, which they drape about
Kf- them .while they alt the regulation length bttlmo
S '-, in the Orst room. During this time they chat with
H- ach other,-though not very familiarly, and they
HKkr keep up the pretcne-o of the drapery until they
HBL '' reach and pass tho next room, after which the
?,"' ' Bbeet and modesty are both thrown off, and with
BR K ' their abundant hair streaming loose, and nncon
BH'f aned they walk erect into the last room aa Eve did
laHK about the garden1 of Idcn, and here they stretch
HBrk tthsmselvea ont upon the marblo slabs while twp
H,VT 'attendants rub them and lather them and pour
iaW. i hot water over them until It acorns aa If they would
HE'r.' be boiled.
HKV ' Each lady la laid upon a marblo slab, which Is
HJE--i slightly Inclined, and two attendants begin their
Hb labors, one at the foot and the other ut tho head,
Ml and they use a sort of clay called pllo, which
laMH&Al raises a thick, white lather which sometimes
iaflaK - grows several Inches thick. The attendants use
iaH? ' nothing but this soapy day and their hands to
HP.. ,, eleanso their aubjecta with, and they rub and
7, Knead and punch until It acems they would rcduco
iHWx' the flesh to a pulp, all tho while leaving this lather
Htji ,to accumulato until the bather looks like a snow
W.i ball. Another kind of soap Is used for the hair,
Kv and another again for the face, but the 'lather la
aKft, ..always left to gather thick as tho worker rubs and
iaVK i-' tolls, the perspiration rolling In streams down her
Kii?1 own glistening body, .Sometimes these attendants
n,'', are white, sometimes b.'nck, aud some of the la
R j dies of 'the harem are as black as any negro In our
HFHf Own couutry, as It Is qulto a 'common thing for a
HVMk- man to make a wife of his Abysssnlan slave. These
Hfc , Inky ladles wear the Turkish veil as religiously as
bVEJtYq do the white wives, and, Indeed, the color lino Is
iHBlVF not drawn closely at all in tho Orient.
HK) ' This Turkish batn Is lighted from tio root and
Br through stained glass, and the colored light falls
laSKv upontne forma laid out beneath with beautiful
laSK 'effect. A large fountain with a deep basin stands
laH in the middle of this room, and numberless little
BKw pipes throw off sprays of perfumed water above
BVj the slabs on which the ladles lay like animated
BK'S 'enowoakes, kicking and squealing when soap
:..' get Into their eyes or moutbji, or when tho
H'i'' attendants tickle them unexpectedly. A little
K'tr' allver basin stands at hand, and after tho ladles
HrC'.'i have soaked in soap long enough they tako qullo
Bft i hot water, , entirely too hot tor anybody but a
Ki-.'r Turkish woman, who Is used to It, and pour It
Btv. gently over them, not dashing tho water, but
kaW') ' ') aoftly emptying It, so that It soon washes off all
BKftfe' v the lather, leaving the flesh rosy and fresh. This
BK.i;.,' pouring of water Is continued sometimes half an
BBK hour and rubbing, rolling and kneading of tho
Wv body, after which the lady la at liberty, to plunge
BK'' Into the basin If she wishes among the otherlaugh
Brfj log and frolicking women, black and white
BK7 mingling Indiscriminately. Words cannot -depict
BV' - the utter abandonment to tun and sport that
BbS-V takes possession of these women and children, too,
Hp "tor after a girl la nine years old she is admitted . to
BMLpt" women's society unrestrainedly. The young girls
BlHP.'.i stp all plumper than our young girls and they
BV have In the main fine figures, though the knees
BK are always big and prominent, which probably la
BV caused by the habit of sitting cross-legged, as they
BV. do. ;Thelr skin Is very white and pure In spite
BBjfi of their unwholesome diet and indolent habits. .
BE' When they have sported about In the basin to
BJ(. their heart's content the servants bring In their
K. i lunch baskets and the women squat flat on the
BHe dripping floor and, without other garments than
Bfet their trickling hair, eat nnttl, as Sam Wellersuys,
BMnt they swell visibly, and play all manner of pranks
B; 'with each other, after which the remnanta of food
BT:. re carried away and the women return to the
K. iva'er again and splash about then for a short time
B . .. longer, and then proceed to their dressing-rooms,
H- - the bathing gown now for the nrst time being pro-
v Then they go and aeat themselves on stools After
BBk -aahort lounge on a divan and a cigarette or so and
fo! coffee, and the prof caslonal beautiflera take charge
BJEgf of them. First the hair Is thoroughly dried and
BKe., Und picked out free from tangles, and smoothed
B.' rlth the hands only until It Is soft and glossy as
BBK; allk. Then It Is braided in two long tresses,
fy.i. 'though some affect other styles of dressing it. The

BKr. her comes the painter with her little box.
BKT ' Hho begins by first bathing face and neck
BBU Jnd arms with balm of Ollead, which makes the
BK, Vskln appear like marble, and emits a dcllclouk
BIBV reslny fragrance and also preserves the skin from
BBKtf Injury by the paints applied later. Then the eye-
BKiT browa and eyelashes are dyed with kohol, 'which
K-., , vtnakes them of a glossy brownish black and en-
Bt 'hances greatly the beauty of their eyes and makes
BBR? ' them look larger and more expressive. AttcT this
BV ' 'a kind of pigment mado of zinc is laid on tblcklv
BE. and modulated with a auft cloth, and then tho
BIK) cheeks are painted a vivid crimson and tho lips as
BH&H led as paint can make them. Tho hands are
BKaJ 'bathed in balm of ollead and the nails are trimmed

beauty of Turkish women, without which they
would bo but ordinary mortals. Thla veil Is mado
of two squares of crepe llsse. aheer and fine. Each
Is folded on the bias, and one piece Is thrown over
the top of the head, the bias fold bring brought
down Just to the eyebrows and plnimd fast In the
back of the head. The other is placed over tho
lower part of the face, the fold being brought up
closo under tho eyes and the points carried up to
tho top of the back of tho head and fastened there,
the ends hanging loosely. Tho facoaccn through
these misty folds takes a softness of outline and
delicate beauty Impossible to describe, und the
dark eyes, with their blackened lashes, show In a
sinking contrast to the snowy folds of the i nah
mak. whllo tho vivid coloring that has been laid on
so lavishly shows but faintly through the veil, and
seen so with all tho expression a Turkish woman
learns to throw Into her eyes, from liwk of any
other mode, It Is not wonderful thU they have
always been considered so beautiful by strangers.
In very truth they are no handsomer than any
other contented, well-fed, care-free women, and
as to their forms well, fat Is their Ideal.
After the adjusting of the Yaskmak they only
need their ferljecs. or lo',.r, loose shipclesa blg
slecvcd wraps, which are usually of black, though
frequently of pink, green or blue satin, and a par
asol as gay, and white gloves worn with the rings
outside, to complete their outdoor costume. For
their feet they wear socks and congrf-ss-galtera. or
go barelegged with slipshod sllppera. which do
very well In tho house, hut aro very awkward In
tho street. In the house they move very gracefully,
but In tho street and seen from tho Tiacfc there
,1s nothing that can be more awkward than a Turk
ish woman, and as tn form sho resembles a huge
lilack bug with a white head.
After the ladles are dressed they sit and chat
artd smoke or cat sweets until the eunuch comes
for each party. During these baths, while differ
ent harems aud different women are brought to
gether, many weightier questions are decided
than-, could bo bclived possible In auch childlike
creatures, for here meet those who wish :o place
their sons or husbands in office, and they munage
tupromlso such and such presents to one of the
ladlcn who perhaps Is a friend to one of tho In
mate of the grand vizier's harem, und after that

Thcro arc a good many dcvll-IIsh In tho bay, and
every fow dos some of the fishermen bring In one
or more ot them. Emanuel Thomas, the fisher
man who caught the big shark Buuday last, says
he has caught a great many devll-llah this season.
"Tho biggest devll.flsh.or octopus, as some call
It, that I have caught in this bay," said Mr.
Thomas recently, "was, when Its arms were
stretched out. fourteen feet across that Is, Its
arras were seven feet long. Then I havo caught a
good many smaller ones on my lines. They
are very ugly things to handle, and when I take
them out of Iho water I am not, for a moment
even, careless how I handlo them. Tncy have a
month Just llko a parrot. It Is located Just under the
sack or body. The long arms are covered on tho
Under sldo with valve suckers, which exert ex
traordinary power. When they get bold of any
thing It Is a rare Instance when they nro not vic
torious. Thy aro cunning, too, for when thoy
fasten their urma around amau they work their
arms so as to get the points Into his nostrils. If
they do he la n goner. Thoy cau crush the life out
of uinauornn animal In a moment. When they
aro attacked they throw out a black secretion
which clouds the water confuses their an
tagonlst and enables them to escape. They aro
very hardy. Thoy will live for three or four days
after being taken oat of water. I am going tn try
and tako tho next big one I catch to tho Kast.
They can be transported without much trouble."

v Where Beautiful Women Congregate.
Viltthura JUtpaleh.! iV.u York i.K.r.l
The largest assemblages of feminine beauty In
America are at what aro called " professional " or
authora' " matinees In this city. On these occa
alons tho houso Is practically free to actresses at a
ttme of disengagement. One of them occurred
thu wpnV. At lpast alx hundred wnmen wero
there, and tho majority wero young actresses
ranging from Mrs. Ijnglry and Mrs. rotter In
beauteous fame to exhibits from tho burlesques
and comlo opera choruses. Langtry Bat between
a girl from the mute but lovely rear row ot a cur
rent travesty and a pupil from a school ot acting,
either ot whom was handsomer than she. When
It Is considered that physical beauty Is the most
Important clement In the selection of actresses,
and that New York Is the market for hlstrlonlo as
pirants, It can be believed that an sudlcnccnso
largely composed ot actresses was marvellously
handsome. A good photograph of that crowd,
with their vast variety of beautiful faces and their
actressy pteturesqucness of attire, would be a
picture to never tire of looking at,
" Box and Cox " Outdone.
"Our old friends " Ilox and Cox " havo been out
done, and may now retire Into prlvuto life. Eliza
Kuhnel haa solved the problem how to live with
two huabands at once, According to tho police
sergeant, this enterprising woman lived with her
first husband during the daytime and with her
second husband during the night, keeping up two
houses und two establishments. The second hus
band seems to have discovered this arrangement,
perhaps, like the Immortal Cox, from having a
holiday granted to him by his employer. The
woman is evidently a genius, so let us hope that
the matta will be settled as amicably and have us
satisfactory a tag as Mr. Morton's farce.
Too Warm for the Parrot.
riVovt (A Kingston Eatt Tinman,
A good Joke is told on ono of our Kingston boys,
who recently went to Chattanooga to engage in
railroad business. He waa engaged In loading an
express car, and In the rush and hurry of loading
a parrot was put In a corner unnotlcod by him and
a lot of staff piled up around the bird. In the samo
car was a corpse. After the train had gotten some
distance from the city and all was silent the mes
senger waa startled by hearing, "I'm hot I I'm
hot! Let me outl" The men say that Itobert
stayed long enough lo exclaim, "Hanged if you
don't get hotter than that before you get out I"
and bolted out on tho platform.

Klsh form a great food staple, nnd are tal'.cn In
many ways. One day soon after I nrrlved 1 iiavr a
man standing on a log In tho river. He had a
small dip net In his hand. On tlio'end of the log
was a cormorant with a ring about Its neck. I'ri
ently tho bird ilivcd In tho water aud came to the
log with a fish In Its mouth. The man put his net
over the bird's head, aud by n twist took tho flsli In
his net, from which ho transferred It to his pouch.
The ring was put about the blrd'n neck when It was
joung, and Its head had grown M that It could not
get It off. If It had not been for Iho ring the bird
would have swallowed the fish. They sell their
fish alive. They havo bucket like the end of u
barrel, about two Inches dcop, in whlrli they put
some water aud carry the flsli about In them.
Everything they do seems Iho revcrso of our cus
toms. They saw towards thumsclvcs and piano
towards themselves. The men sew, and tn sew
ing they push the needle from .'hem. 1 hey .stand
their horses In tho stalls with tl'clr heads out. I
asked a man why they did not tti.'ii them the other
way, and he said the horso wouli! get more fresh
air with his head that wuy, nnd besides, u man
was usually not In a hurry when rto put his horso
up, bnt he might bo when he took mm out, nnd
not have time to back him out nnd tu.'H htm round.
I suppose, as they live on tho other Hide of tho
curtn and have their heads down all the time, it
comes natural for them to do opioslle to us.
They are very kindly, pleasant, nffablo people.
They uro very cleanly. 1 think they bathe oflener
than nny ptoplo on earth. The common
vehicle of the country Is a two-n heeled cart
pulled by coolies. These men go qulto rapidly.
One of them pulled mo forty miles In one aa,
to the top of a mountain range, making an As
cent of (1,000 feet. They do not wear tho nhovs
In the hntiHO that thoy wear out of doors, hence
their houses are marvellously clean. They tend
their gardens very carefully, and trim their ever
greens In fantastiu shapes. If you look In a garden
at night It appear full of elephant and other
animals. The women put their bulr up hi funclful
shapes, butterflies, fans aud other objects being
Imltutcd. It la dressed with a sort of gluten, and
becomes hard when dry. It will retain Its shape
for a month after dressing. They havo no bon
nets, ily the way, do yotf know that two-thirds of
the women on the carln never saw h bonnet, and
they would not know what to do with them if they
dlil see them. The men wear no hats. The
Japanese do not wear pigtails. They shavo their
hair through the centre and bring the side to a
knot at the top. ,
Tho country la beautiful to see and delightful
to travel through, but the pcoplu, us to houor,
purity and erucltr are In u deplorable state.
There Is no audi thing us business honor among
them. No one believes any one with whom he Is
dealing. It was for many years the custom for
uny ono who wanted lo get rid of a girl
to sell her to a tea-house, airls who had no
ono to look after them wero sold tn the same
way. Theso tea-houses are sc.ittcrcd nil over tho
country, like saloons. The tea Is served by girls
exclusively, and theso girls nro also kept there for
vile purposes. This Is universal. If the girl wilo
serves von Is scut from the room thu keener comes
to ask If she has been Impudent or has done any
thing out of the way. Formerly, If a girl ran away
from one of these houses, the police brought her
back and compelled her to stay, but by tho forco
of foreign Influence this hns been changed, und
now a girl may abandon this life If Hhc wishes to

Two Tough Tarrlcra.
f From a fli'eio York LttltrA
New York produces grim children In some of
Its wards. I was attracted by a thrcc-ycar-old
samplo of the gutter-haunter. He wore a check
ered dress and stood about twAnty-olgbt Inches
high In his bare feet. An Indescribable hat with a
portion of visor was pulled down hard over ono
eye, bo that only tho other eye was used In watch
ng the ways of tho world. Ho was evidently a
very serious young gentlemen. Ho paused in an
effort to make a younger sister of his stand ou her
head In a puddle of water to shout, "Hey, dcrel "
to a very square, hlgh-hlpped gray horse that a
man was leading along the street. The horse was
caught by surprise, and he let his heels fly to show
his llmldlty. lie thereby yanked tho young man
who waa leading him nearly off his feet. The lat
ter cast a terrible look at tho author of tho troublo
and said :
"Say, young feller, wots dor matter wld you?"
The qulto "young feller" looked back with a
earful scoru and replied :
" I'm loaded, dat'u what's der matter wld roe.
Bay, mister, do you know wot's der matter wld
you? Ycr too fresh, dal's wot's der mutter wld
ny this tlmo the man had passed out of hearing,
and ho only turned to his now thoroughly calm
beast and said :
' Dem Is tough tarrlers. "
And Just at that moment the three-year-old
old rounder had his smaller sister successfully
standing on her head In tho puddle.

The Smithsonian Institution does a great deal of
good, flrst and last; but it has Just undertaken an
nvestlgatton which Is suro to cxclto opposition.
The reptile dlvlslou of the Institution has begun a
serlos 6f expcrimenls with snako poison, with a
view to discover some antidote for rattlesnake
)ltes. A number of large rattlesnakes from the
Virginia mountains have been secured for the pur-
Eosc. Now It Is well known, lu the Houthern
tales especially, that whiskey Is tho only sover
eign remedy for rattlesnake, bite, it ia not only a
remedy, but a preventive. 'So strong Is the faith
lu Its valuable properties that men have been
known to drink whiskey In the snako country so as
to he prepared for any emergency. No Intelligent
rattlcsnako would knowingly hlto a man saturated
with certain kinds of whiskey, for snch a courso

the Smithsonian Institution may discover a new
antidote for tho rattlesnake's bite, but It cannot
hope to compete successfully with the old reliable
