I reached the stream, but bad not yet disturbed a feather. A few more steps brought me on the same side as Fan. I wonaered how she could retain the uncomfortable and crumped position she was in. But she did, and showed bo signs of weak ening either. TT W k* A TTIlTlt Uterving myself for the denouement I pushed in ahead to fln?h the partridge, walking over all the ground pointed out. but failing to put up the bird. Had 1 not been sure of the do?* I should have thought it was a rabbit or ?quir> re!. Under the circumstances it completely mystified me. I looked over at my compan ions. They stood tho tame as before. I spoke to them, but they obstinately held their point, and in a way that suggested that they knew their business and thought it was just a little queer I didn't kuow mine. I began to think 1 didn't, sur? enough, when my eve? were attracted by a small, round, (potted ob ject jnst at my feet Ey the great born ?poon*! it was a turtle. Tho mystery waa solved. DT'CVVTITED casisis. As I picked up the cause of my disappoint- j ment tho dogs l-roke their point and came in. First they smelt of Ur. Turtle and then sniffed the groand where he had cowered. It waa wilh some difficulty that I recognized them as the same do?'? which had ohly n moment be fore presented a picture that cnused mv nerves to tiugle and heart to multiply its beat*. I simply looked first at them auil then at the turtle, which was nil that waa needful to com plete their discomfiturn. The great law of na ture, gravitation, did the rest, and their heads sml tails swept the gr}un<l. Nearly unv dog wili fool himself and master on a turtle. When j aoaii shooting touth I have seen half a dozen logs alauding with as many men drawn up in mooting array back of them with nothing but s turtle ahead. Before reaching home I put up another . brood, but ouly got two of them owing to the 1 thick cover, thus making eight birds in all?* bag that one need not bo ashamed of, aa | partridge shooting is the roost difficult of all wing shooting, and the man that can count three or four dead birds out of every ten shot* (?hoot:ng at every bird that gets up) may con sider himself a regular hick Deader*. lie may put up his woodoock. quail or snipe with the' certainty that if the bird gives him * fair chance it m as good a* dead since about seven out of every ten wii* drup to the report of bis gun. OXB BULK that should be elosely adhered to in this sport is to alwayi shoot. Jt makes no difference if you see a foather or not, throw your shot just in front of the leaves the bird's flight disturbed. Von may not kill him; the chances are about nine out of ten agaiust you. The advisability of thts habit, though, is proved when a bird ?hears himself for a few feet only. There is not then a moment's hesitation us to will I or ? ill I not atioot. But the bird is instantly covered, and after some practice often killed, although the chance seems a slim one. OCH 1JD HUELLS. In regard to gnn and shells the best remit in partridge shooting can be obtained with * seven-pound breech-loader having 'JsMuch bar rels. the rigbt-lmnd barrel cylinder bore and left medium neavy clioke. Shells for tlia right hand barrel (or for the barrel that is first fired) should be loaded wilh three and a half drachms of smokcleso powder, primed with black, nJ one ounce No. 10 shot. Three wads should bs put over the powder and one on top of salt. Shells lor the other barrel should have thres drachms of best black powder and ons aun:e of No. H shot. For later shooting, when the birds xTh wilder, tougher and better protected with feather*, use No. 7 and No. 5 shot 1HI DOGS. In the choice of dogs for partridge shooting ?elect a setter. IIis long thick h*ir will prove invaluable as a protection against tho briars. Wbcrnasa pointer will get foot sore after a day's hunt and will alio refu-.e to enter briar patches that a setter will come out of un scratched. For a pleasant day's shoot a man's dog should be well under control, and to insure this they mn*t be workod fur at least a week in advance of the ahooting season. Otberwiae they will be headstrong and ra:ik. and will flush, al though, perhaps, umutentioually, about as aiany birds ?? tiiey Hand. VESTS FOR TUK UADIES.

How Two Young Maidens Made a Charming Boom. TREASURES IN THE ATTIC. ?t I OM M IM Vm Re|aT?m?Md-P?rl* tollM f*r rkclsfrapk Collect Is SHORT time ago I had tin pleasure I of eeeing a bed room which had lately bsen fitted np by two young girls, in which ingenuity had done to much toward the good effect that I will de scribe it Other ingenious young women may thereby be encouraged to go and do likewise? or, at least, aa nearly likewise as their re eoorees will admit of. la the home of the young girls I refer to was an attie large enough to accommodate all the cast-off furniture which had been accumu lating for years past, and this was the treasure house whieh enabled them to place in the room every piece of necessary furniture, and a good many articles of luxury as well. When the brilliant idea of refitting their room seised them the first step was the banishment of the old-fashioned "bed room set" of chestnut?old fashioned, but not antique, between which terms is a world of difference, eometimes. The/ were saf j in doing this, for they knew that np in the attie were a bedstead and bu reau of mahogany , with which their fathor and mother had set up housekeeping some tnirtr years ago. The bedstead had headboard and fo>tboari of the tame height, and when a modern cabinet maker hud taken it in hand and brought out tb* rich coloring of the wood it shono forth a handsome piece of furniture, well worth the dainty crvenng and embroid ered linen which was bestowed upon it. The bureau was high, with flat top, and there was a small swinging mirror attached, but that was taken off ai*i a large mirror, as wide as the bureau and square in form, was added, to its great improvement Brass handles gave the finishing tcnch, which made it the equal of the bed in beanty. BE-cniATPTS OLD CHAIRS. In the mahogany line also were two chairs with box seat* covered with hair cloth. These seats were taken out, covered with charming cretonne in pink and green coloring, and the frames repoliahed like the rest of the wood. This made an end of their resources, aa far as solid wood went, but a quite dilapidated wash stand of stained pine was feund which had done sul>ordiuate servico at some time or other. Undaunted by it* unprepossessing ap pearance they put it through a course of white paint, finishing with the ennmel gloss, and when it was all done, with its pretty scarf and decorated toilet set one wouldn't ask to see a more inviting looking washktand. An old jtained towel rack was also made white and | hung with towels, on each of whicn its in dustrious owner had embroidered her mono- i gram. The crowning feature, however, of | this toilet corner is the scrcen. which affords seclusion and adds much to the prettinens. These young girls had been educated at home in their younger days, and in the attio were several relics of the old school-room furniture which were most acceptable windfalls in the way of rotrxDATioss ron white paiwt. One of thele was a rather heavy, plain, two fold sereen of dark stained pine. From this the old hangings were taken and the frame Kinted white, which took away a good deAl of over-heavy appearance and brass rods were inserted, on which were shirred curtains of delicate pink and green flowered silkoline. The heavy frame made it very firm and solid, while its light coloring suited the other belongings of the corner. One of the greatest triumphs of the room, though, was the ingenious trans formation of the aid school room desk into the dainty writing table required by the modern young woman. This old affair with sloping lid to lift and four straight legs, was first treated to tho whitening process, and brass handlot and key plate set for ornament on the front aa if tor a drawer. The top was then slightly padded and white enameled cloth put over, fastened down on the four sides with brass-hoaded nails set closely together, leaving a narrow margin of wood showing. This pretty and successful little desk is set across a corner rf the room, with a window at the left hand giving a good light for writing purposes, and is fitted np with lovely china inkstanu. tray and candlestick as aids to friendly correspondence. On the wall over the desk are some hsnging shelves or open cabinet?another of the school room rcmlmsccnces whieh hava been painted white and hnng with silkoline curtains. These are equal to holding a considerable number of books, while tli? top gives space for ornaments, as there is no mantel shelr in tha room. An old bed room rocking chair with cane seat and back has been painted?cano and all?and has a pretty cretonne cushion ou the scat with double pillows bung over the back. A small bed room chair has been similarly treated, making enough comfortable seats for a small room. A CHAEXIKO LITTLE TABLE. By the bed side is n charming little table, which would be a pretty addition to any room where cretonne is suitable. The frame is of pine, low, with square top and shelf below and straight, square legs. This is covered entirely with the same cretonne as the chairs and the portiere at the cloeet door. The cretonne ie fastened on the legs by brass taeka set very eloee together, up and down. The top ia finished with linen lace four iuches deep, put on with the brass tacks, while the shelf lias the same lace on each eide, Just meeting the legs at each end, but not run ning around them. It is a particularly pretty and effective bed room table and occ quito easily and Inexpensively gotten up. Long cur tains of silkoline are at each of the three win dows and also white muaJiu aush curtains, while, as I said, the heavier eretonne forms the closet portiere. The wall paper is light and has pink and green for preraiiing colors. To nil the white paint applied these yonng artiste added a few touches of pink and silver in lines,edges. 4c., which gives quite a uuique effect Espe cially is this shows in a willow wnste-papcr basket, which stands on the floor by tho dusk and which has one division painted pink, with olive green ribbon run through, tied in a big bow on oue side, the next silvered with pink ribbon run through, and tho lowest one pink and groeu again, while the braided rim is sil ver. Oue can see the use made of the articles on baud, with the expense for new things put Into the cretonne and silkoline and white paint mostly, and so I call the room a triumph of ingenuity. I should say also that the floor Is bare, with several pretty rugs scattered about- the most wholeeotue and attractive ar rangement for a bed room. A BOUDOt*. Next this bed room is the tiny bondoir. over which the same yonng maiden* preside, and an attractive little apartment it is, too. It is vary small, with only a little space either eide of the door aud a window opposite at the cud. HobWs egg and peacock blue are combined in tiie furnuhjage with happy effect The w;Uls are robin's egg, the rug deeper, and the sofa ie covered wHh peacock b.ue plush, while the smaller articles range all the way between the light and dark tone*. Some rather low book shelvee are oa eae side of the room, with cur tain*, oa which ia a little embroidery, while the top is covered with photographs, china and all sort* of pretty souvenir* or several years' resi dence abroad. A dainty little tea table ia op posite the sofa, whieh has an exquisite little service, collected dnring a winter's etav in Dresden. A cosy of bine plush, with the com bined monogram or the two girl* worked in gold and silver, to ready to keep the lovely little teapot in the proper condition of beat to make theeapof tea quite perfect The little Caps are flatod and painted with the gay little baaehee of lowers eeattered over them for which Dreeden is fatuous.

Then another m that al most only two people can look at an albnm to gether, while with separate mounted pictnree * Zt.u *roup of peoP'e c*u entertained with them at once by exchanging them after looking at them. I think to put pictures of the aame style together in one portfolio is the best ?lan and have as many of these receptacles aa 1 tor ,he collection. Landscapes In one?buildings. exterior and interior views, in another; portraits in a third and so on, classi fying according to one's taste and the nature of the assortment of photograph*. Those portfolio* can be made very orna mental or quite plain, aa one chooses. I have already mentioned similar out*, but aa a guide to my questioners and hinta to poaaible new resders I will repeat Two pieces of thick pasteboard of any required size make the port folio. Theae are covered smoothly with what ever material ia selected and a lining pastod in which conceals the edgea of the outside cover ing. The outside ia left whole for eome two inches at the back between the pasteboards to al ow space for the pictures when the port folio is filled. Ribbons tie it on the aidos permanently, being just slack enough to cor respond with tlie alio wr. nee made at the back while ribboue to tie and untie are on the front.' The pictures are mounted on aingle cards, leav ?ng a quite wide margin of white to set them off well. Brocade nmlte* a beautiful covering for the portfolio; plush lightened with gold thread is also effective and aatm sheeting with handsome embroidery also is among the best ; materials Then comes India silk, plain or | flowered; Japanese silk crepe or the cotton crepe either?and finally linen or crash painted or embroidered or both combined.' i here are almost infinite waya to make the coyera, according to ane'a resources and ac quirements and the time one wishea to spend. Ihe gold-stamped Japanese crepe ia white or delicately colored ground might be perbapa the beat material for effectiveness, with little work and alight expense. Corda instead of ribbona would look well also. If several of theae portfolioa are desired a charming variety might be gotten up by exercising oiie'a taste iufflclently, and Rgain I suggest them rs pretty and suitable Christmas presents, for it is never too early to be thinking of the demands o'f that season, and one is apt to be only too tardy in one'a preparations. KILLING HEN IN BATTLE. It Is All Very Well by Wholesale, bat Not In the Retail Way. 'HEN a man goea into a battlo it is presumably with the intention of doing aome killing." said an ex-army officer to a writer for The Star. "And yet I never knew a aoldier yet who liked to feel that he had himself with hia own hand ac tually alain an individual foe. There is an intoxication in the melee of conflict, but no man k'ikea to feci that his own piatol shot or bayonet thrust haa taken away the life of a fellow being. "Perhaps I should acccpt from this general atatement the typical sharpshooter, who cul tivates an instinct of warfare that approachea the murderous. I havo never been able to aee how a man conld deliberately take up a station in a tree top or rifle pit and mark down for death, one after another, individual* whose lives were wholly at the morcy of hi* scientific aim. Of course, war ia alwaya savagery, but there is an element of certainty in the abarpahooting business that, to my notion, approaches very near to murder. ?"I vividly recall to mind one experioncs of my own while with a akirmiehing party at the eecoud battle ot Bull Bun. The fight had lust begun and a rebel scout approached without knowing it very cloeo to the clump of trees be hind which my little detachment was con cealed Catching sight of ua suddenly he wheeled hi* horse like a flash and was off. On the spur of the moment I fired my pistol right at him, and a second later be wheeled ia nia saddle and fell out of it. The fight swept over in our diroction and I saw no more for the time being of my victim; but, though I was in the thick of the fray for most of the time for the next few hours, I could not gat out of mv mind the horror of the idea that I had killed that man Not only had I taken away hi* life, but very likely I had made hia wife a widow and hi* children fatherles*. That night when we went into camp I had this oppressive feel ing atili on my mind. when, to mv great de light, I saw the man that I had killed, evi dently a prisoner, sitting on the stump of a tree with his arm in a sling. dtar fellow.' I exclaimed with mnch cordiality, approaching him, ?! truat that you are not aerioualy hurt. 'Now,' replied tho confederate, drylr. When yon fired at me my horae shied and brokomy urm against a tree. Your bnllet didn t hit me at all.' "I do assure you I never waa more relieved in ail my lite. "But the most painful experience that I met with during the war was at Chancellorsville X ionnd one ot our men, *hen the fire waa pretty hi?t, sknlking behiud a big lojf. " 'Xhis'll never do, man!' I shouted in his line * *?et Ui> LBr? aDd Uke y?Ur plJWe 1,1 "I took him by the scruff of the neck?for he was seized with a panic?and shoved him lorward. As I did so. with my hand on his collar, a chance bullet struck him in tho fore head and he fell dead without a cry. "The shock that incident gave "me I have never entirely recovered from. I folt that I had killed that man. The fact that I was in a position of equal danger with himself did not affect my moral impression as to the occur rence. It seemed n* ir I had deliberately forced him into the path of the bullet, and that I waa responsible for hia death. 8uch, in one sense was true; and yet, of course, I was not in any just sense responsible.

Queer Sort of a Strike by Printers In an Illinois Town. The union printers on the daily Journals of Monmouth. I1L, struck last Tuesday. Ths force was about evenly divided be tween union and non-union men. The fore man. who was a recent acquisition to the force, discharged a non-union man to make room for one who belonged to the union. The proprietor would not allow this, whereupon the union men quit work, forcing the nou-uniou men to go out also. Tuesday night tho uuioii men received information that Linn. one of tfie non-union men was going to work the next day They immediately visited him and threat ened to kill bun units* he left town immediately. He was la?t seen being escorted to the depot It is feared by some that Linn has met with P*"y- Lebnancher, another non-uniou man *?? ,i? W0.rk WcJu<-*Jay. When he left the oflice the union men who were lying m wait made for him with clubs aud brickbats, and would haTe probably seriously injured him but for the intervention of some outsiders, Tho affair causal much exeitcmeut, and the alleged leaders of the strikers have been indicted by Me grand jury for conspiracy aud intimidation, stored!** B?W lQ *uJ quiet has been re THE TRAIN WRECKERS IN COURT.

In ths Renngaelar county conrt of sessions at Troy yesterday the grand Jury pre sented indictments against Thomas Cain Arthur Buett and John lteed for misplacing a switch on the Central Hudson railroad in East Greenbush September 4. The prisoners *?r? arraigned and pleaded not guiitr. Jheirteial wasMt for Tuesday noxt Julln Cordial and Johu Kicrn.in were discharged. No bill against them was founa. Kiernau wns im mediately rearrested by Detective Humphrey of the Central Hudson force and l&oberi i'ink erten and taken to Albany county on a charge of obstructing tho track of the Central Hudtou railroad near Earners August 23. Cordial left the court room in company with several Enights of Labor who had beeu present at the arraignment. It is stated that the iudictmeuta were founded on ' ' ^*t,IUO"y the three men who were ludicted. They cenfeescd to spikmg the switch about two miles north of the scene of the wreck ia Greenbush but deny placing obstructions oa the tn?ck at tne polut where the exprosn train was wreckod. lbe reason for their pleading not guilty after testifying as abr?ve is said to be thut it i? de sired to have them testify in cases in Albany county before they plead guilty to the indict ments. The Longest Fast oa Reoord. Mrs. Adam Wuchter of White Hali, seven miles from Allentown, Pa., has passed the one hundred and sevanty-second day since she has tasted food or drink in any form. This is vouched for by her at tending physicians. Thr unfortunate woman's fast does not arise from cbctce on her part, inasmuch as she is afflicted with a malig nant cancer of the pharynx, which prevents her from swallowing either solid or liquid feed, although she craves it constantly The doctors cannot accouut for hsr wonderful ter.aeity of life, except that she is possessed of a phenom enally strong constitution. Her condition is gradually growing worse, her lower extremi ties are cold like those of a dead petscn and her vitality is at sn exceeding low sfch. Ho Asked, but Did Not Reoelva. The Rev. R D.
