That a woman can handle a gun In ?sportsmanlike fashion, that she can Bhoot straight and shoot to kill has been demonstrated by Mrs. Eugene ' Belden's record of the past two sea Sons in the Maine woods, a record which is the pride and envy of the crack shots of the Bucklield Fur Club, of which she is a mem her.

She is a youthful matron whose "home is in one of Boston's suburbs. She is a social tavoiite and a clever amateur actress and she has always . been fonu of athletics and outdoor Bports, but until about a year and a half ago she had never attempted to use a rifle. Her husband, who was an enthusiastic sportsman, persuaded her to try shooting at bottles thrown into the air. She hit them without diffi? culty and was eager to test her skill on something with more -isk and ex? citement in it. She soon found an opportunity of this kind oil a hunting expedition, which she undertook with Ivor hus? band. Her first shot in the woods brought down a squirrel, and this made her eager for bigger game. It was not long before she sighted a deer, and without the least wavering she lifted her gun and tired, hitting it squarely in the .shoulder. The next morning she got. a shot, at a fox, and It proved as accurate and effective as MUS. HELPKN 8 nlINTl> her previous efforts.

Several benches of this style are al? ways useful about the house, either for Plauts or for seats, and for the piazza they are quite as attractive painted some pleasing color as if finished in natural wood. A Cfilibnire Centerpiece. A novel and inexpensive decoration for the dinner table was evolved by an ingenious woman seeking to combine the maximum of effect with the mini- I mum of expense. The result was so charming that she resolved to make the idea public for the benefit of other housekeepers similarly situated. Here it is: Take a head of cabbage, one that has been picked too late is best, for the leaves open better then, and arc apt to be slightly curled. Lay the cabbage on a Hat plate or salver and press the leaves down and open with your hand, firmly hut gently, so as not to break them off. When they all lie out flat, stab the firm, yeliow heart through several times with a sharp knife, until its outlines are lost anil then place flowers at random all over the cabbage. Roses are prettiest, but any flower which has a firm, stiff stem, callable of holding the blossom upright will do. Press the stems down through the leaves anil put in sufficient green to vary prettily. The outer loaves of the cabbage, the only ones to bo seen when the flowers arc in, form a charming background, far prettier than any bas? ket. The New IMwcuNhlon. The now pincushion measures from eighteen to twenty-four inches In length, about five inches in diameter, covered with white or black guipure lace, or pretty drawn work, over a gay ly tinted satin and frilled all down its long sides and very narrow ends. Such odd and pretty cushions that have ab? solutely run the fat, round and square ones out of fashion, can be made at homo out of odtls and ends, or brought in simple or exquisitely expensive ma? terials ready made at the shops. The I.uw tin Pillow*. Perhaps yon didn't know that fash? ion dictated as arbitrarily about rush ions as about costumes. Just now sh says that no frilled pillows shall bi used on divans. They are reserved for arm chairs and settees. Not lest. than nine cushions are considered cor? rect for a couch. They must be twenty or thirty inches square, and the cor? ners must be tucked in. Try Holding Your Breath. The modern, quick-moving elevator, when it sinks suddenly, gives many persons an unpleasant, qualmish feel? ing. Into a well-filled elevator in a big shopping store in New York the other day .stepped from one of the floors two women. "Ho you know," said one of thorn to the other, "that if you hold your breath ttoing down in an elevator you don't have that unpleasant feeling, you don't feel it at all." Of course nobody in the elevator lis? tened intentionally, but nobody could help hearing what she said. Conversa? tion instantly ceased and everybody drew a long breath. The elevator shot Jownward in silence. "Ground floor!" said the elevator man, as he threw back the door, and the women streamed out from the car upon the floor, talking now gayly; and there was one, at least, who said that the plan was effective. THE LAST HAPSBUBCT FRANCIS JOSEPH OF AUSTRIA, EU? ROPE'S MOST USEFUL KING. Ho Watches Over His People as Early Rulers Dlil?Virtually the Ijist of Ills Line?Other Progeny of the House Degen? erate*?Troubles of His Empire. "The Empire will be buried with the old Emperor. God keep him!" Recent events in the Austrian Reich? srath have given a stronger tone of au? thority to this saying of the Viennese. Immovable, Franz Josef watches the glory of his imperial family fade with the sun of his years, which are fast set? ting on his gray head. It was said that the Crown Prince committed suicide, but Franz Josef knows the lie as well as the world. The Crown Prince was killed in a drunken brawl. The Empress suffers from a form of melancholia, and has eccentric? ities which would likely put a woman of less importance into a madhouse. She is always veiled when she appears ou the streets, and takes part in nc F.MPEUOR 1HANCIS JOSEPH. ceremonies or functions. Archduke Ferdinand, who is expected to succeed to the throne, racks all of the qualities that a king needs. Themselves become weak-minded, thin-blooded, degenerate, the Haps burgs, whose head was Emperor of the Roman Empire and Emperor of the German Empire and mighty in Europe for seven centuries, must support the humiliation of seeing the great houses of their rivals more valiant than ever in the propagation of healthy chil? dren. All the strength left in the Hapsburg blood seems to belong to this one old man. Hut when he rides in the Ring strasse and factionists forget their hatred of one another long enough tc cheer him frantically, you look in vain for some sign of the misery which must be in his heart. You see an erect old soldier, with brletling side whiskers, bushy eyebrows, <fccp;set_eyes, a Uu nose, ana tne great protruding undei lip of the ancestor which has clung..*: all Hapsburgs like some fatal birth? mark. He was only 18 years old when he came to the throne. He is now 67. and this year lie will celebrate his dia? mond jubilee. His reign has witness? ed the granting of constitutional re? forms which did not long palliate the internal dissensions which commanded them. He has become familiar with rebellions in arms as well as in legisla? tive halls. The victories of the Prus? sians in '6(1 made the King of Prussia the actual Emperor of Germany, while lie himself ceased to be its nominal Emperor. So Franz Josef's has not been a glor? ious reign. Old William of Germany, once said that, under the circumstan? ces, he wondered that it was as good as it was: and thereby he suggested Fran2 Josef's great virtue. Franz Josef has kept the parts of his empire intact and has given to Austria the influence that she has among the Powers of Europe. The brusque, gruff old soldier would like to see his army, which lias such a long list of defeats since Napoleon I. first put it to flight, equal man for man to the German army. The people of the four other European Powers are to a large extent homoge? neous. In Austria, the Magyars, the Slavs and the Germans each make the imperial interests second to their own. Each race is not only opposed to the others, but hates them and would rath? er enjoy carrying their enmity to the sword's point. Roughly speaking, the population of Austria consists of 9,000.000 Germans, 17,000,000 Slavs, G.000,000 Magyars, 3.0U0.000 Wallachlans, 1,000,000 Jews, and 500,000 Italians. The Slavs are di? vided into as many factions as there are races. To harmonize all the varied interests of subjects who are headstrong and hot-blooded is the business of the Em? peror. For such work Franz Josef is peculiarly suited as a man. He is the final arbiter, and if lie be so clever an emperor as Franz Josef he can give his decision in such a manner that even those who get the worst of the compromise can accept it with good grace; whereas they would accept it with no grace at all if it came from a Judge chosen from among the enemy. So Franz Josef is, outside of the Czar, the most useful king in Europe. The throne in Austria is not an anomaly at the close of the nineteenth century, hut a necessity. Airoinnt the Cold Shower. "No healthy person, much less a sickly one, should ever dash cold wa i tor ujion his body." This is what an English writer, devoted to the study of personal as distinct from public hygi? ene, tells riders of the wheel who have labored under the impression that the cold shower bath was the proper thing following a ride. According to this man of science, the whole effect of the shock is positive in? jury. "The people whose systems are strong enough to react from the shock may think they are benefitted," he says, "but they have simply been strong enough to recover." Many people have testified to the health-giving properties of a cold shower, but this man rejects it all, de? claring that the cold water attacks the vitality of the body at the outset, driv? ing the blood from the surface and con? centrating it unnaturally on the interi? or. This, for the time being, produces a tremendous pressure and subjects one to serious diseases. A BLACK NAPOLEON. D1NIZULA WAS ONCE RULER OF AFRICA'S GREATEST EMPIRE. lie Met IIU Waterloo at the Hands of the Britta? an.! Languishes an Kxile at St. Helena? Keeps an Imposing Ketinne Willie in Banishment. The Island of St. Helena, where the white Napoleon ended his days a prisoner to the English, a black Napo? leon is now also a prisoner. It is a singular chapter of coincidences which seem to unite the fortunes of the house of Bonaparte and the house of Chaka. Early in the century, when Napoleon was overrunning Europe with his ar? mies and dazzling the minds of men with his genius, an English sailor was wrecked off the African coast and wan? dered into Zululand. He was taken before the young chief, Chaka, and to him he told of the won? derful outside world, of which the chief had heard rumors, and as all the world was then filled with the name of Napoleon, he tok! of the rise of the Corsican and how he had conquered nation:; and built up for himself a great empire. The story of Napoleon captured the fancy of Chaka, and he resolved to be an African Napoleon. DINIZDU, TUB DI.Al-K NArOI.KON. Then began the rise of the great Zulu power in South Africa, and Cha? ka spread his conquests over great territories and subjugated neighboring tribes and buiit for himself an empire. It flourished until it broke itself to pieces against the English, just as the empire of the man whose name had inspired its building did before it. The empire established by Chaka stretched along the whole southeast seaboard of Africa, from Limpopo to Cape Colony, and extended far inland. When the English landed In Natal in 1821 the empire of the Amazulu was the. most powerful in Africa. _ Cbaka I made a treaty wan cue cjiigiisn, anow I ing them to live in Natal, and for this I he was killed by his brother, Dingaan, I in IsiiS. Then begun the struggle be? tween the white man and the black man which was to end in the. destruc? tion of the empire founded by Chaka. Peace and war alternated, and all the time the Zulus lost ground. Finally, in 1NS:;-S1. the British felt bound to lilat out the Zitlu power. Then it was that Cetewayo, the heir of Cha? ka, summoned forth Iiis whole force j and burled Iiis "in pis" or regiments I on the British. At Isandulu the Zulus broke the British squares and routed the redcoats, but the end was the cap? ture of the chief and the breaking of the Zulu power. In this way the house of Bonaparte again became mixed up with the for? tunes of the house of Chaka. The Prince Imperial, grand nephew of the man whose example had inspired tiie building of the empire of the Amazu lu, went out to right in the ranks of the English and was killed by a Zulu spear. In 1S84 Cetewayo died and the quarrel was continued by his son, Dln izulu. Dinizulu was conquered, and now lie has been sent to St. Helena to end his days on the spot where the man whose example caused the build it. ir up of the black king's empire died. As. becomes the head of a great and warlike line. Dinizulu is accompanied in his exile by a numerous retinue. His two uncles, several chiefs, a phy sii inn and a clergyman, with their wive; and children, make up a house? hold as numerous as was that of the great Napoleon when at St. Helena. Dinizulu speaks and writes English fluently, and is a man of more than or? dinary intelligence. An effort is now being made to procure the release of Dinizulu. It is argued that his return to his own people would convince them that the English intend to deal fairly with them. But the British govern? ment would hardly dare to place again in the heart of the valiant nation of the Aniaztiltt a man of the ability and the bravery of Dinizulu. Firemen's Helmets. In Oermany, Austria, Holland and Italy the firemen wear "smoke" hel? mets which enable them to breathe and see at their case in a smoke-laden atmosphere. In some instances the tpparatus includes a means of tele honic communication with the street slow. Simon's Jall-Itlnde finltnr. "That necessity is the mother of Invention was never more clearly shown than in Russelville, Ky., the other day," said a gentleman from Lo? gan county. "Simon Cannon, a negro, in jail at Russelville, has always been of a mu? sical turn of mind, but when he was cast in the county bastile he found himself without Iiis favorite guitar or any money to buy an instrument with. No!hing daunted, the ingenious dar? key determined to try his hand at 'making something to play on,' as he expressed it. He took the tin pan In which his daily meal was brought and made the head of the banjo. A rough piece of poplar, smoothed with an old brcken-bladed Barlow knife, was made into the neck and screws. He took 12 cents he had and bought five strings, and the odd-looking banjo was - ready for the music-loving Simon. Jailer Morris says the jail bird can make the sweetest of music on his home-made 'gitarr,' aa Simon calls It."
