A negilge cap made of pal blue surab. white lee and narrow blue ribbon is the Arst of these. The ribbon is drawn through the crown three times and looped behind as shown. The crown is full and the shape is regulated by the ribbon. A pretty dre for a young matron follows. As designed it was of gray-blue sicilienne. the girdle of velvet a few 'bades darker and the whole garnished with old vellowed lace. The skirt was trimmed around the top with strips of velvet put on lengthwise at regular inter vals and trimned with narrow lace. The lae dehu was held by a velvet bow in front and the ends behind fastened by tiny stick pins. The sleeves were in two large puffs and were trimmed with a wide lace ruffle laid in pleats at the inner -sm. CEAILLY. The pointed evening bodice of the second picture h-d a full ruffle or empire cape around the neck and the sleeves were full uffs. trimmed with a wide ruI~e of lace or of the 5ar. material. Further on the seated figure wears a neglige made of pink silk, with fine white stripes. The skirt has a wide flounce at the top coming down almost half the length of the whole, and edged with lace. The jacket Is tight fitting behind. but the front is loose and the fullness is confined by a ribbon belt. It I trimmed with lace, and has a yoke-like arrangement of alternate stripe of silk and lace insertion in front, finirhed with a gathered lace ruffle. The latter forms a jabot in front and then continues down the back, where the ends meet in a point at about the center. A ribbon iN pased under the turn down collar and is tied with a boW in front. Tight cns of silk and lace insertion. trimmed with a lace rue, comolete the sleeves. The Anal example is a spring tolet with just a suggestion of the airiness of the summer about it. It is cut prinss and has a skirt which betokens a sensible wearer, as It clears the ground. Tae material is tan colored whip cord. There is a collarette of black velvet, short behind. but having tabs reaching to the bottom of the dress in front and edged with a gathered ruffle of black lace about five inches wide, a narrower lace fnishing the high stand ing collar. The skirt is trimnimd with two ruffles of tan cloth around the bottom and the whole costume is lined with silk. With the cos tume is worn a bonnet of tan straw. the inner brim covered with black velvet. It is trimmed with prim romes, black lace and an aigrette. A Morat fur Centribators. From The Critic. "rve read." "ai an editor to a writer in the New York Ties, "hundreds of rolled mann seripts. and I never yet found one that I cared to print. I have decided that the stupidity which rolls a manuscript cannot produce any thing worth reading." A roled Md. is a des perate thing, but there is another that is almost worse-the one that comes to you with the last page on top and the first page at the bottoma. A MS. was once sent to mec arranged in this careleas manner. There were 500 or 600 pages of it. Do you know what I did with it? I sent it back to the author with a note in which I advised him before he sent that Mu. on is travels to show sumlcient interest in it to ar range the pages properly. I hope for his sake' that he acted upon my advice. If he did not, I doubt that his tale ever got a hearing. Life is too short for the important things to be done as they should be. and It never could be long enough for one not only to do his own work properly, but to rectify the careless work of writer, but a MS. arranged backward sows a carelessness that is insultinig to the person to whom it i sent and argues Ill for the intelli genee of the writer. An attractive-looking manueeript goes a long way toward winning the favor of the "reader." Even if refused. it is refused with genuine regret; but a "reader" is only too glad to find the carelessly prepared MS. as worthiless as it looks. I have always samired the patience that induced Mr. George Maven Putna'mz to read the MS. of "The Leavenworth Case," for it .was carelessly writ ten in lead pencil on common paner. and by an author then unknown. But he had hia reward. A Comma. Triek. Vrem the New York Journal. "How much for this bottle of perfume?" inquired a stylish young man of the night elerk in a Broedway drug store the otner evening.

Now t1hat the trouble has broken out again he says am ahe bowl ghtas wB be made known as to the essss whieh have brought it a b ou t . Newspaper readers have generally but the dimmest notion as to who and what theme people are, who, to gether with the Cherokees, Chickasaws, Creeks and Seminoles, Compose what is called the Indian nation. The Seminoles came origin sily from Florida, the Creeks from Alabama ad Georgia, the Cherokees from North Caro lina, and the Choetaws from Louisiana and Mississppi. They were transferred to the west )f the Mississippi river between the years 18M mud 1857. for the purpose of getting them out f the war. It was not realized then that civ lization would ever get so far toward the set ling sun as their present habitat. "The area occupied by these five tribes Is mormous." mid Maj. Hayes yesterday. 'It is big enough to form a good-sired state and has L suffiient number of inhabitants to adimit it as such to the Union if they were made citi tens. The territory owned by the Indian iution covers 31.000 square miles. Wita.a its imits dwell 37.000 Indians who p* for fui. iloods. 34.000 of mixed blood and 17.000 whites mad freedmen who have intermarried with the Indians. Besides these there is an alien popu ation of more than 100.000. consisting of gov trnment employes. rail way men. coal miners, 'arm laborers, mechanics, squatters, claimants o tribal rights, cat tle grazers and other classes if tresspassers. There is a steady increase in his foreign population and a steady decrease n the proprietary pomulation. The cattle ;razers exer cise great induence by the use of noney, whiie the wtnrerous ierons who claim unship with the tribes for the purpose o? ob ainiug prolerty rights nake constant trouble. REST FOR THE I.NDIANS TO BE CITIZENS. "It would be best for all parties concerned if hese Indians could be made citizens of the L'nited Stater. and be thus brought under the lireet jurisdiction of Uinie 'Lam. As things .re now they may almost be said to form a for 'ign nation in the niit of the Uiited btatcs. Each tribe makes its own law.i aid elects its iwn legiylature and governor. The United itates government exercises only a general tupervision, otherwise allowing them to take :are of them.welves. There is a United States 'ticial in char:ge of the agency for the Indian Mation; also United States marshals, who keep lrder. and a United States court for trying Wfenses against the federal laws. such as bring ug liquor into the territory. Each tribe has tS own council hon.e for the sit tings of its law makers. The Choctaw council house at Tush mahomima is a handbome brick building and lont *35.000. "The recent trouble started at the election 5or the governor of the Choctaws last autumn. rhere were two candidates-Jones and Jackson. Fhe former claims to be a full-blooded Indian, )ut he has blue eyes and looks like a white nan. He knows very little English. Jackon, m the other hand. has the appearance of a full >lood. He was edIcated in Virginia, possesses :onsiderable intelligr.nce and is familiar with he ways of the whites.e The election was very oiose and both parties claimed fraud. Blood ,hed followed and four of the Jones faction were killed. I was sent with a troop of evalry o Tuslhkahomma to restore order. There was to further dieturbance at that time. I was resent at the counting of the votes. Jackson mid a clear majority, but some of the precincts which went for him were thrown out on techni aI grounds. so that Jones was declared elected governor. "Nevertheless, everything went off quietly. [*t recently the Jones party tried to arrest :rtain persons who were engaged in the kill ugs of last autumn with a view to fetching hem up for trial before the Choctaw court. rhey sought refuge with an influential man nmed Locke ant reinsed to be taken. So Lov. Jones ord-red out the 'light horse,' as the tribal militia is ca!led. to capture the de Linquents. Locke turned his houye into a fort mad delled the mihtia. Fighting resulted, ae :ounts of which you have read in the news papers. Finally, the United States agent or lered the 1ight horse' to disband and federal troons were ago'n sent for. "such is the simple history of the recent troub!e among these people. Though civilized in their ways. wea:ing tua same sort of clothes and living in the Pame sort of houses as the white man, they are desperate fellows. The anly way which iI. y r -ognize for righting a wrong Is to shou. 'I t.t country a deputy marshal, when he goes arrest a person, must get the drop on him firit. He presents his revolver mn one h:.nd and his warrant in the ather. The otiicer who acts is such a capacity must be brave. coci and, above all, quick on the trigger. There are hundreds of these deputy marshals in the indian territory. From their ranks are gradtwied many of the "bad men" of Ihat region-as. for example, the Dlalton gang. which has made itself so famous lately. Not long ago I saw a dozen deputy marshal's in the Endian nation r.ttack a little house in the mountains, which was perched on an over sanging crag. Thei situation was fairly im regn.able. cAPTr'nIno A ROU53 ON A cRAG. "The house on the crag was owned by a half ireed Indian, who haid murdered several men. It was fortile. and furthz= garrisoned by three >f the criminal's friends. For some time a ~usmeldo was kept up by both the assailants sad the besieged without doing any damage, irery one being under cover. Finally, one of he attacking f arty. covered by volleys from the rifles of as comam~no as. ran across an spen spree to a point beneath the overhanginag rock, where he coolly fixed a big charge of ivnamite with a fuse attached. He effected als retreat in safety, and about three minutes inter there was a tremendous explosion. The whole rock on which the house was built was torn into fragments and thrown up in the air. together with the sto;.e which had composed the dwelling and the mangled bodies of its oc eulpants. "All of the Indians in that country go armed. it is very rare to see i'ne of them without a pistol slung around his waist. At the same timo a white man is rurfeeily safs so long as be does not interfi-re with them. To Illustrate the small value which the. sot on human life, I may quote alrs. Jjsae 21tirain, widow of a former gorernwi of the Choctaws. who was the best man the tribe ever had and the most be loved. She asid to me that he was very good and very just; in all his life he had 'only killed seven piersons.' His widow owns a hotel at Tfush'ahommaa, where she keeps boarders dur ing the sessions of the Chocetaw counciL. She ha.; much other property and is a great sup porter of the Jones faction. The regular sea slons of the conett referred to are forty days in length. The legislators get g5 per diem, andi so are much inelined to indulge in the Luxury of ea~ra se-sions. "The Chortaws are an agrieultural people, but few of them do any work themselves. They prefer to rent out their land to aliens. The soil in that region is extremely rich and lbe farming land' c' the Chiekasaws are among the finest in the world. The Choctaw oantry is very rich in minerals It has coal fields squal to those of Pennsylvania. There are several coal mniass In operation, employing 3.000 men; but I dn't believe that this number Includee a single Indian. The mines, like the tillable Aields, are leased. Strangers mumst all pay a poll tax and the Industries In which they' sugage are taxed also. If a non-eitisn pats up a saw mill, for lastance, every leg that he mets is taxed so much.

They are not &aone to do an.n but emoke, eat. sleep and gama. They are very fond of the great American game of poker, and have a weakness for whisky. which is fetched surrep titiously into the territory by smuggler. Thee smugglers are called 'bootleggers.' They are desperate fellows and occupy a good deal of attention at the hands of the deputy marshals. The liquor they import is of the poorest quality but they can easily get SS % quart for it. The Indian, if he wants a thl.g. will y any price for it. He does not realize the ne of money. He will spend all he has on a line carriage and pair of horses, though his squaw may be in rags. The carriage is left out of doors. ex posed to the elements, and in a month or two it in destrored. THE P3OP1.3 AE IMPROVIDENT. "The people are very inorovident. Their tendency is not to congregate in villages, but to dwell much scattered. Apparently they like to live alone, without neighbors near at hand. Once in a while they have feuds. which are prosecuted with the utmost vindic taveness. They have come dishes peculiar to themselves. Ono of them in called 'Tom Fuller.' It is made of corn. which is beaten in a kind of mortar. The mortar is a log of hard wood hollowed out. In this the grain is reduced to the size of coarse hominy by pound ing with a pestle. The corn thus prepared is boiled. allowed to ferment and flnally eaten in the form of soup, without salt. It has a sour dlavor and is not at all agreeable to the palate of the uninitiated white man. They make all of their cornmeal in the same way by pounding the corn in a wooden mortar. Meal that is ground in a mill after the ordinary fashion they will not use. Another favorite dish of their@ is stewed skunk. They regard it as a lrst-c!ass delicacy. I have attempted to go into a house where it was cooking. but the smell was too much for me. "To give you a notion of the manner in which the Indians are unposed on respecting money matters. I may refer to a payment of money due from the goverunment which was made to the Choctaw rot long ago. 'he amount was 03.00.000. By the time this sum had passed through ihe hanN of lawyers in Washington nnd had reached the Indian nation only about $1.i00.000 of it was left. On its being dis tributed to the persons who are entitled to it, less than *1.000.000 was divided. The finances of all the five tribes are in excellent condition, except those of the Cherokees, who are consid erably in debt. The richest men among the Scminoles are the Browns. They have been hereditary chiefs for generations and may be said to run the tribe. Capt. John Brown has a great store stockcd with Indian goods. He sells a Fort of scrip representing purchasing value at his establishment. which pastes current among the people. The Indian nation has been thoroughly Christianized. The Choctaws are Baptists. I believe. They have hymn-broks and Testaments in Choetaw. lievivals and camp meetings are frequently held." "The Choctaw Indians are still pientiful in Louisiana. The women come into the market in New Orleans looking like Rip Van Winkle's goblins. with enormous bundles of goods on their shoulders. Among other things they sell prettily colored cane baskets. for which they get material from the canebrakes; also pods of gumbo, which they raise. ground for soup. These people used to flatten the heads of their children. Though living on the Mlissisippi river, not one of thein could swim. on which account much fun of them was made by other Indians. TRUT 5mev sAw Da SOTO. "The Choctaws were among the first to see De Soto. the discoverer of the Mississippi. Even at that early time they were agricultural, living in houses, keeping stock and building large terraced mounde. The first white man to behold them was Caboza de Vaca-anglice. Mr. Buil's Head--who started with an expedition from San Domingo via Cuba for the purpose of conquest on the mainland. eventually eross ing the continent and remo.:inig California with three remaining companione. "'The whites encroached upon the Choctaws in Miscissippi and Alabama. a great deal of trouble reculting. There were a number of big tights. Andrew Jackson conducted a war against these Indians, and the latter nearly occasioned serious difnculty between the gencral government and the two states mentioned. bec tuse the states did not treat the cop;er-colored people fairly. Their transrer to the Indian territorv was eventually made bv en. Ecott. Previonsly the American board of foreign missions had sent among the Choctaws Cyrus Byington anel other good men, who accompanied the Indians to their new place of residence. To themi is due mnch of the pros rity which the Choctaws have since enioyed Byington wrote a die tzonarygnd grammar of the Choctaw language." AN IGNORtANTr COOK. Thne Close Connection Between th~e Kiteben and the Saloon. Is it much wonder that people compelled to live on sour bread, heavy pancakes, grease soaked meats, watery vegatables, sloppy coffee week after week should resort to stimulant. for temporary relief from the discomfort, and ail ments engendered by such abominable diet? With such conditions existing, saya Mrs. Emma P. Ewing. superintendent of the Chautauqua Assembly Cooking School, why be surprised at the prevalence of drunkards? The whole ter ritory of the drink question lIes contiguous to that of the foodn question and overlaps in many places. A der-anged stonsach longs for stimu lants. Of the 50.030 drunkards that die In the United Sate. every year a large pro nortion have the appetite for 'intoxicat ing drinks aggravated, if not implanted, by the food that constitutes their daily diet. A healthy stomach has no abnormal craving. Nutritious. well-prenared food satis fies It perfectly, and, when eaten in proper quantities and at prouler times, leaves no hank ering for candy or chewing gum, for cigars and tobacco, beer or brandy. There Is a terrible allinity between sour bread and sour mash whisky, and for innumerable feet the ignorant cook paves the wa to the saloon. Without good food there cpbeao wholesome growth in any direction. Asdthe enlightened spirit of the nineteenth century demands a much higher order of cookery than exists at present. It de mands an order of cookery that is intelligent, economical and healthful. Shall not that de mend be heeded? LShall not our kitchen Inter eats be lifted up and p!aeed upon a level with sll other Interest. of oar daily life? ) II *& TIhE H EIRESS. X. A. Wesest Nin k Lams'mmakhi. T HIS 38 THE DOXANIC3 01 A mIDDLE sged mn-the rems en eMhsd and young heart. I mangray-haed and forty, and yet an I At at my deskin at gleay Utte offe, of Harman's mill a face comes between my eyes sd the columns of filges in the dusty ledger-a young face with leer, brht I eyes-and I fal lnte a day dream and forget that I am old and poor and commonplace. She is the only child of Jere Harman, the milliosaire mill owner, and as getlie and good as she is beautiful. I have watched her grew into womanhoo4L I have watched her earactser deepening and widening and developing toward the ideal of my dreams. And all thes yeam I have been learning to love her. Surely love is not wholly wasted though it le hepelass. I am a better man that I have loved Nellie Harman. No. I build no air castles. I am forty and she eighteen. I am only her father's bookkeeper and she is the heiress of millions. There was a tms when lite Nehie Hrsman rode on my shoulder, hunted my pockets for goodies, and escaped her nurse's charge several times a day to toddle down to the mill in search of "her Jack 8 encer," Later she brought her school tanks, Te incorrigible Latin verbs and the unconquerable examples in fractions, to the same old friend. who nas never too busy to be bothered by little Nellie Harman. She is as unaffected and cordial in her friend liness as ever, and sometimes when she lays her hand on my arm and looks up into my face and asks why I come so seldom to the Hall, and have I grown tired of old friends, of her-then I find it hard to answer lightly, to smile calmly, and I go away with a heartache. The girl does not lack for friends. Grim. stern old Jere Harman's little bright-faced child. motherless since her babyhood. long ago found a tender spot in the hearts of the village folk. In the cottages her face is as welcome as sun shine. The children hang on her gown. the women sing her praises and the roughest mill hand has always a civil word for her and a lift of the cap as she passes. She has her young friends, too, among the country gentlefolk. Young Harry Desmond is often at the Hall. It is rumored that he is the fortunate suitor of Jere Harman's heiress. He is a fresh-faced. good-hearted lad. Love is for youth and they are young together. Gay-haired Jack Spencer, what have yoe to do with "love's young dream?" The strike! Ihe mill is shut down and the strikers gather in knots along the village street and discuss the situation. The cut rates have caused the trouble. Jere Harman is a hard man and a hard master. He holds the fate of these people in his hands. A few cents less to them, a few dollars more to him. This seemed to him to settlo the question. The times were dull-he would redace wages. The Harman mill opera tives went out in a body. The 1'rat day of the strike Big John. the weaver, who headed the strikers, came to Jere Harman with a delegation to arbitrate the matter. To them Harman said: "Rteturn to work at my term or stay out and starve. Monday I hire new hands if you are not back in your places. As long as I own this mill I shall be master here." This was his final answer, and no words of mihe, no warnings of the murmurs and threats that grow and deepen among the men, will skake his will. 'I here is talk of firing the mill among the mad-brained ones. but Big John shakes his head. "That were chopping the nose off to spite the face, men. If the mill were burnt how would that help us to work and wages? Nay; it must be othcr means." "Aye, we must live; but if we do not get our rights by fair means we will have them by foul." cried another. They mean mischief. I have warned Jere Harman, but he will not heed, 0 0 0 0 0 C C The strike is over. The night is ended, and I sit alone in the office in the gray dawn. sick and dirr with the horrors of the night's experience. L shut my eyes and the picture stands out before me-the dark night. the Hall with its lights glowing out through the windows. the gay party of young people in the drawing room; the gleam of torches outside, the mob of dperate men, the angry. upturned faces. There was a trump of feet. hoarse shouts. and a stone crashed through a window and shattered the chandleher. The music stopped with a discordant crash. There was an instant confusion and above it all there were the hoarse cries for Jere Harman. I sprang through the piazza window and faced the men. They knew me wel!, and Big John shouted: "We've naught against you. John Spencer. We mean no harm to any, but tid master must hear us. Bring out the master!' "Come like honest men, in daylight. and talk it over calmly." I urged; "not at night. like a mob of ruffians with stones for arguments." Jere Harman had come out t o them. They greeted him with an angry shout. "We are to be put off no longer. Is it our righte by fair means or by foul, Jera Harman? ' "Your rights-" began Jere Harman in his harsh. stern voice. I saw that Nellie Harman had slipped out to her father's side and laid her hand pleadingly on hxi shoulde;. She did not fear the angry men, for willingy not one of them wouid have harmed a hair of her dainty head. I ,.aw that she would have pleaded with her father to be gentle withx them. "Yes, our rights!" yelled a voice in the crnwd with an awful oath. He was drunken or blind with rage--,urely lbe did not see the girl at her father's side, A stone whizzed through the nir. It mght have been Jero Harman's deathblow: Iitead, it struck her. It en+ a great, cruel gash just above the temple. They sprang toward her-her friends, her lover-but Nellie Harman put her two hands ont to me with a sharp, gasping cry. "Jack. Jack!" she said, and I caught her In my arms. I have lived over the agony, the joy, of that moment all through the long, lonely hours of this night. It was Big John himself who brought the doctor and cried like a child when they told him she was dying. His little crippled child she hadl loved and cared for, and it had died in her arms. "Aye, and that harm should have come to her, who was more goodl and innocent of wrong than the angels!" muttered Big John, brokenly, as he went away softened and sorrow ful. Jere Hasrman sent me out to tell the men that he hand yielded, and in the silence of death they went aweay. The strike is over. As I sit here in the gray dawn, waiting, fear ing, dreading the coming of the morning and the news it may bring,.I hear the clatser of horses' hoof'. it is a servant from tha Hall rid ing to the villrage on some errand. "What newsTl' I call out hoarsely, and learn that the worst is over and tat she will live. Nellie Harman hovered between lifepnd death for long weeks, and I worked as I had nevar worked before. Jere Harnan left much of the management of the mill ix. my hands, and I put heart and brain in the work or I should have gone mad in those weeks with the longing to see her face. When es was well again I spent many evenings at the Hall. talking business with her father, who came seldom to the oce in those days. He had broken in health with the recent troubles and had lost energy, but he was gentler and kinder than of old. Harry Desmond was always there, I was but a dull guest. I could not endure has light heartedness, the trinmph in his eyes, the ha pine'. In his laugh. I could not endure that h should call her by nams or smile on her. I was a mad fool! I told Jere Harman that I must go away; thea I must have rest, change- vacation.

Two Or THE ADICCTsL The cloth waists are awt-ays of some figured or ombre silk and wool mixture and the others bar brilliant stuffs adorned with velvet. satin or extravagances in lace. One on view the other day was a China silk. whose fullness was drawn into the point of a narrow purple velvet girdle. The silk itself was white, with a heliotrope figure. A band of velvet defined a round yoke and served to sup port lace, which was cascaded and knotted all wround it. Another, in shaded tan and blue, was folded tightly across the bust like a French waist. Un derneath a vest of Syrian red worked in gold beamed forth. There were also stiff revers upon the original structure. A third was large figured grenadine over a ilk lining of red. The grenadine was black. bearing a scroll work in heavy yellow. Dark red velvet revers made themselves remarkably conspicuous by their so mentricities over the should'ers. while the belt did its best to go up and subdue them. The "utlity" waists are called English sharta. They button down the front soberly enough and end La the neat round ribbon belt without anw out breaks whatever. Starched lawn, eher,r canbric and other wash goods compose them blouses, which well merit the name utility. TOILETTE DE VISITE. Corn Flower Blue Wool and Petunia Velvet. There isn't much satisfaction in describing a particularly lovely fabric, for it is quite likely to be an imported piece which can't be dupli eated here for people who are so unfortunate as not to have a chance at it in time. Of course. American manufactures are very nearly as good is the continental article, but designers here re not quite so daring and therefore not always so artistic in their combinations. The carriage and visiting costumes made in these exclusive patterns are the very dower of new and ultra colorings. An up-town contouriere has sent one of her Fair customers to create havoc in this "stm phony." The body color is soft bright blue. the blue of the corn flower. and its composition is wool and silken threads stamped with tiny Aireles and long curved figures in brocade of rich brilliant petunia. - 1.

These were MNem.. N V A. ciAmA. Daly. the rich copper miner. and W. A. Clart. tl noted millionaire of Butte 4'ity. Both Clad and Daly came to this country eomisratively poor, and both have made enormous fortunes. Clark was born in Pennsylvaniaabout ffty-Coe year. aCo. and he drove a yoke of cattle aeres the plainq to Colorado when~ he was just twent three years old. He worked in the min-- ses Denver for wages. then drifted north to Butbi City and began to invest in all eoarl of thingi in Montani. He peddled goods to the mies going about with a wagon from camp to camp, and after he had saved a little money founded a store, which paid him well. He got bold 0l several undereloped mines. and before workig' them went back east to Colnabia College and studied mineralogy and chemistry. With hi increaged knowledge he came Lack to Montana and began to make money hand over 1st. No one knows how much Mare Daly it worth. He owns. I am told, a fourth interest in the big Anaconda copper ine. wiek pro. dnces millione every year. and he has electrk railroads. bank., silver mines and gold gale. To come to the senatorial contest. It was a number of years ago that Clark and Daly owned bilver mines which were closs to one aseother, and I am told that the trouble between them came from a dispute as to whether Ciark had thq right to a earams part of the lwoperty. 1n 1892 Clark wanted much togo to the Seeis and he decided to vut everyting into the eentesi and make it go. As thestorygoeshere. hepulled wires in eve-y legislative d;trict. and whe th election was over he thought he had a sent thinx.
