Methodist throughout Great Britain were surprised to hear that the Central church, Hastings, elected Miss Dawson of RHlhill as a distriot representative to the forthcoming Wesleyan conference at Birmingham. Hitherto no lady was allowed to enter the Wcsleyau confer nee, and whether this will now be per mitted remains to be seen. The most recent important event at Windsor was Queen Victoria's new hat, Rumors of its magnificence had preced ed her majesty's appearance at the castle. The rumors were correct. The august bead of the church and state was roofed in a new hat, youthful in shape and fashionable in style, and quite cov ered with ostrich plumes in addition to a large white ribbon bow. The biggest book in the world will be the catalogue of the British museum. It has been in preparation for thirteen years, but now the gigantic task of com- liilation ia nearine completion. Some Idea of its size can be guessed from the fact that 1,400,000 distinct titles and en. tries have been printed in all sorts of languages, and presenting no end of difficulties, even to the Bavants and linguists employed on the work. By way of experiment Liszt's four teenth rhapsody was recently played at the Brussells conservatory by a band of seventeen clarinets. The clarinets were of every kind from the highest in E to the new "pedal clarinet," which goes as low as the deepest tone of a double bass, The effect of the performance is said to have been both strange andfiiscinating, and it is thought that the tone color ob- tained in some passages will be of great interest to bandmasters. 'Special eggs for invalids" is the an nouueement made on a New York sign. The prices of such eggs reach sixty cents per dozen in winter, and seldom fall below thirty-five cents. The lan guage of the trade fails to find a verbal formula in which to convey the state of absolute freshness in which such eggs are guaranteed to be, but an assurance, much in the nature of a certificate, goes with each egg, and is to the efTeot that lione of them is over forty-eight hours old. Special eggs for well people are neoded. They painted with hose in the decora tion of the Columbian exposition build ings at Chicago, and now there is invent ed an air pump for sweeping with hose, likewise in Chicago. It is as simple as possible. Compressed air is forced through a hose and nozzle identical with those used for water, and although only oars are now cleaned by it, there can be no question that it will speedily be ap plied to hotels and other large build ings. A great argument, besides the labor saving, is that it cleans the cor ners as no broom will do. Nothing is said about the dust it raises. A letter from a speoial correspondent of the London Times gives a very un favorable account. of the economic condition-of Argentina. He gives figures to show that out of the fourteen prov inces of which the Argentine republic is made up, there is one, and one only, in a position of financial soundness. The rest, he says, are burdened with debts, recklessly incurred, and out of all pro portion to the revenues, available for discharging them. One, indeed, of the thirteen defaulters, he believes, could pay what it owes in full. But as this would involve some slight effort, either , In the direction of retrenchment of cur rent expenses or of an increase of taxa tion, Mie thing is not done, and the. con tributions to the provincial debt, though till ' maintained, has been consider ably" reduced in amount. The others pay nothing, for they have no surplus incomes from which payment could be made.

It Is prolinblo that lu spite of the elo quent picas which huve been and will be inude for tho preservation of the bemity and the loneliness of the coun try rouds of Connecticut and the safety of the chllilreu of the farmers, most of the towns of this Mate will soon be eleo- trleully connected. Many of them al ready aru. A similar state of things ex ists hi several other States, aud In fifty years from now it may be possible to take a bag of five cent ploces and go from Stow Iluveii to Pan Francisco on the electric roads. It will be possible to go from New York to Philadelphia ou electric roads very soon unless the plan that has been made falls. A trolley Hue Is to be constructed to carry passengers oud light freight between those two cities, a charter having been obtained from New Jersey for the purpose and right of way for the entire distonce secured. The New York and Phila delphia Traction company has a capital stock of $10,000,000, and will begin con struction immediately at Trenton, and work both ways toward the termini. There will be one hundred and fifty miles in the main and branch lines, the system having been planned to cover a very large number of towns. Seventy miles of local lines in different cities are to be merged into the system. The men interested in the enterprise own a valuable water right just below the falls in the Delaware, and contemplate using it in the production of the power needed to operate a large portion of the line. All aboard for Woodmont! Change cars at Woodmont for New York! ' IT'S EXGLISH. Britannia rules the wave and the British lion is walking proudly about on the Queen's Club grounds. This part of the world is especially interested in the proud peregrinations of the lion Of course it is impossible to explain why that lion is permitted to feel as big as he does except on the theory that whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth. We have thought, too, that there may pos sibly be a subtle though unperceived connection between the English lan guage and athletics. It is well known that at Yale little attention is paid to the study or use of the English language, and it is also well known that at Oxford the English language is prop erly respected. And can it not be that the genius of that language fixed things with the genius of athletics so as to ad minister a fitting rebuke to the repre sentatives of the highest learning of this country who, claiming to be a part of the English race, had the gall to contend in athletic games on Eng lish soil without being trained to speak and write the English language as the should be written and spoken? If it should be discovered that this is the true state of affairs good will flow from the discovery, for Yale could have no stronger incentive to the study and use of English than the feeling that in time a baud of her athletes, skilled in Eng lish speech and writing, might make that British lion, which is now so cockily treading the Queen's Club grounds, drop its tail between its legs and slink away in the shade made by the American eagle as that noble bird was soaring gloriously sunward. We believe it would pay Yale to study the English language, even if she were never permitted to win in athletic con tests on English soil. She might be able to defeat Harvard in literary con tests, and then no boy who might be picking out a school to go to need go to Harv ard. All the boys could come to Yale, which would be first on water, first on land, and first m the journey toward the stars. somh ciriyjssE yonoxs. China is a very old country and has had time to learn a great deal. It is, therefore, barely possible, we suppose. that she has learned some things the knowledge of which hain't fully spread through this great, glorious and high oockalorum natiom Mr. E. J. Simcox in his book on China, which is the sub ject of one of Mr. Hazleton's remarka ble reviews, shows ut how the Chinese have deal.t with some problems which are vexing thoughtful souls in this country. It appears that in China the owners of wealth are looked upon by the government as the dangerous class. Both laws and custom are unfavorable to accumulation, so that large fortunes do not remain Jong in the same family, Heiresses are unknown, and conse quently fortunes cannot be increased by marriage. The Chinese millionaire as likely' as not to leave thirty grand sons equally entitled to share in his in heritance, and therefore the members of the next generation can at most suc ceed to A. modest competence. Of the four recognized classes, namely, the literati, ' the cultivators, the artisans, and the traders,1 the latter is, on the whole, considered to stand lowest. The profits of trade or banking are viewed askance as soon as they seem to exceed the fair wages of carrier, apparently because of a feeling that a man who lives by profits ouly is a kind of usurer. The concurrent outcome of the authori tative opinions expressed by the great classical writers of China is that the great wealth and costly luxuries Intro duced by trade are evils aud the source of evil. Contemporary and subsequent scholars have contended that the luxury brought about by coinmeroo under the Han dynasty from B. C. 200 to A. D. 200 would havemlnedtheemplre If It had not been summarily arrested with the for eign trade that gave It blrtb. It It ad mitted that the tendency of mankind in this direction cannot bo eradicated, but the experience of China has shown that It can be kiit In check. Liuoutchl wus but one of a long series of sagos who have maintained that the govern ment should visit with penalties and dlsgraeo everything that tends to di minish the production of useful com modities; as, for Instance, allowing pleasure gardens to oooupy fertile ground, the planting of curious and un profitable trees, the gathering of the budt of the tea tree, and any employ ment of labor which withdraws the peasant from the cultivation of the ground and artisans from Industries use ful to the public. A oertalm minister called So-ling onoe lent twenty thousand ounces of tllver from the treasury to welve little merchants, and when asked why he did so, said: "In order that the publio may not have to pay for tho banquets, the entertainments, the varnishes, the concubines, and slaves of him who bos monopolized the trade in silks." The rivalry between a number of less wealthy dealers would, he said, oblige them to compete in industry and skill, and not to ruin the publio with high prices. It is astonishing that people who are yellow in color, whose eyes slant, who wear pigtails and who wear their shirts outside their trousers could have got hold of such notions as these. They actually seem to believe that it is not all of life to make money. They must be gods or lunatics. No sensible human beings would have such ideas.

The lace is heavily figured about the points, and is delicate unfigured net elsewhere. The points are ar ranged to lie smoothly about the skirt, and the fulness at the top is gathered about the waist. Nothing could be prettier over a wash silk skirt, the bodice being elaborated with narrow vandyke lace for epaulettes and cuffs.

The . chemisette Is made of mousseline de sole lined with colored taffeta and the bodice has collar and vest of guipure, beneath which it fastens fclth hooks and eyes. The short sleeves consist of moussel ine de sole with colored lining to match the yoke. Current modes; show .considerable. vogue for dresses of two different col ors and materials,1 the darker being for the bodice, the lighter for the skirt. epaulettes, undersleeves and so on.

T WOtM OF A BXIOMTK. I'eriandu-'a CtuwrlMt Koom at a Narmgaa- sett rtar Hotel. Narragansatt Pier, July 14. To the Editor of the Jouhkai, ad Cotmiaa Room, not over fifteen feet squar. One window, with old-fashioned ssshss which It rsqulree the strength of a Her- culea combined with the persuasion of a Socrates to budge. Outside blinds, but no shade or curtain. On the floor an old malting patched in places. For furni ture, everything of the plainest and cheapest. Fair enough bed, but only two diminutive, substanceless pillows. The bureau drawers are worse than tho window shades. They come out, when they come at all, by Jerks, first one side and then the other, till you are mad enough to kick the whole thing Into kindling wood. Two chairs, of so small pattern that you think they must have been taken from the nursery. You oan't help sitting well over both sides of them at once. Finally the creasing of your superfluity becomes so uncomfort able that you prefer to stand. The fur nishing Is completed by a wash-Bland. Wood, of course; about two feet long by one foot wide. On top Is backed a piece of well used oil-cloth. On the oil cloth are bowl, pitcher, soap-dish; noth ing else, white, opaque, solid, small. You will have to wash in very small sections. On one side of the wash stand are two projecting prongs mov ing on hinges. On each prong is a thin, used up rag. You can Insult the poor old things by calling them towels. narrow shelf runs from the door to one of the-corners of the room at about height of five feet from the floor. From the shelf hangs a dingy, faded curtain. Behind the curtain a row of hooks. This arrangement takes the place of a closet. A card tacked to the door Informs; you that the price of the palatial apartment you are about to occupy is -forty-two dollars a week, that the room is a double room and that there is no reduction when occu pied by a single person. The Idea be ing that no reasonable American eum- mer-resorter could possibly wish to ap propriate so very much valuable space to his individual solitary and selfish self. If you go about among the other hotels you will find just about the same state of things in them all; the same ideas of space, size, comfort, price. Not all of them stand up to the forty-two dollar figure; but they come close to it, and all aim at- it. Space is moreover too valuable, to devote but the smallest possible portion to parlors, or to pub lic purposes of any kind. No writing rooms, smoking rooms, billiard or bar rooms. There is a narrow piazza down upon whtch,Abe sun pours its blister ing rays all, the morning; there is a patch of bald, bare, bleak stubble be tween the piazza and the street, and that is the juthole of it; all the hotel does for your comfort and your entertain ment. Yet the hotels are filling up rap idly, and in ten days will be crowded. At all these hatel3 the . table ranges from good, to. very bad. At this partic ular hotel the"table, from the American hotel point of view, is very good. You can gather about you at dinner tne regulation number of small dishes, each containing something that has been cooked from ten minutes to two hours. From1 the messes you may be able to select a few which are edible. At other hotels brl the Pier you won't. If you ask your host hy are your prices so high, he will undoubtedly re ply, in the way of retort, because the season is short. Then is good time to tell him, what is absolutely true, that a first-class hotel makes its own seasons that the American people are so fond of being well fed and comfortably housed at reasonable expense that they will go anywhere where these attrac tions are offered, and stay as long aB they last. The hotel question is a large factor in foreign - travel. To under stand the factor, fly with me on the wings of memory to the Schweitzer- hoff, in Lucerne, and see what may be had there for the money. For one dol lar, a room containing everything ne cessary to comfort; for two, a room with luxurious appointments. When you descend In the morning you find many rooms where you may sit, write, read, smoke, drink, &c., &c. In one very large room is the last edition of every important newspaper published in civilization. The regulation break fast costs fifty cents, and consists of coffee, eggs, honey and rolls. If you need more you can order it; and it will be ordered for -you, served piping hot from the Are and charged at -a , roost moderate rate. There's a table d'hote at one and another at six. The. first costs one dollar; the second one dollar and twenty cents at least they did two years ago. The table d note is a com plete meal, but with only one thing to each course; one soup, one fish, one en- tre, one roast, &c. It is cooked so as to be served on tbe minute. It Is served on the minute, and if you are not ready on the particular minute you can't par take. But you will be sure to be ready. When the table d'hote is established, then, and not till then, will the era of good cooking be Inaugurated ta this country. If you. talk table d'hote to an American hotel proprietor he will tell you that the ordinary American pa triot would not put up with it; that the exigencies of patriotism demand that meals be cooked and ready at all times awaiting the pauses of patriotism. The true American patriot demands not only unlimited choice of time, but unlimited choice of materials. - The American patriot taking an American dinner is a sight for gods and men. Twelve baskets' would not begin- to hold the waste! Yet the table d'hote continues to flourish in Europe and to be patronized by hundreds of thou sands of unpatriotic Americans who. when they return, sound its praises and wonder what prevents its Intro luction. The finest piece of beet in the wbrld is spoiled by half ah hour's waiting. A chop ten minutes from the Ire might as well be kept a day longen One dollar for room; fifty cents, for breakfast; two dollars and twenty lents for the two table d'hotes; that -nakes three dollars ana seventy cents. If you stay a month there are few 'ho 'els in Europe that won't -take off twenty-five per cent Is it any wonder that outsrolnsr steamers are crowded. nd that every - year larger and faster ones are required? ' " " , : , .'.' t -There Is a-rut6r'that Sherry,' the New 'York caWSr.' backed by -New1 York millionaires, propose ereotlng a larce hotel somewhere near the Pier and cbnduotlng It strictly In European fashion. Should he do so it is aoiiars to doughnuts It will be packed from May to November. The ohlef attraction of Narraganseu oontlnuea to be the bathing beach. There Is no other such beach witnin easy distance of New York. On the Jersey and the Lonsr Island coasts the sand la soft, the beaches are treacherous and the surf Is dangerous. Here the sand Is hard, the hi sen is shelving and the surf Is moderate. The bathing houses, too, are large, cool and well ordered. A dollar and a half for a week's exclusive use of , a bathing room Is reasonable. At Block Island you pay nearly twice as much for very Infarlor accommodations, and are In danger of smashing your toes against boulders. There is a life-boat on tbe look out for accidents, and all the paraphernalia of rescue Is at hand. One nuisance should be abated. There are Innumerable shelter tents all up and down the beach, eaoh one bearing the Inscription "Private." It has be come quite the thing to have your own tnt and sit under It during the bath- Ins hour. These tents have so In creased that they are offensive, and the public Is beginning to call loudly for their suppression. Sherry has the Casi no this year. Prices are higher; prom ises more roseate. Evidences of the great national distress are seen In the looks and talk of visitors. If the pock ets of all have not been touched they are threatened. There Is little gaiety, little jollity. People are apprehensive; more Inclined to be sad than to be mer ry. Narragansett is not the place for novelties, and the old things do not af ford their expected cheer., The gloom which overshadows both Continents is reflected In every face you meet. You are conscious of a strange depression. The skies and the waves are as bright as ever. Ladles' dresses are gayer than ever; bright winged yachts come and go, but faces are long; laughter Is forced. Even the very young, starting In with a first season, are quiet and staid, and their mammas are wonder ing what can be the matter. The pa pers still tell you that "among those present were", but they are a sad lot and the papers had better leave their names out. The ultra-fashionables still tail over from Newport and strut up and down the beach, showing off the very latest French extravagances, as If at a country fair, but they fall to at tract the attention for which they long, and go away with a little of the same heaviness In their worldly hearts.

XATAL ACTIO Oflt SHETLAND. Bow th Cockchafer Lost and round a Poaching Trswlnr. (From the Westminster Gusctte.l Yesterday the Lerwick authorities ap prehended and lodged in Jail the master of the steam . trawler Stephenson of North Shields, which was captured on the coast of Foula, Shetland, by her majesty' gunboat Cockchafer, while engaged In trawling within the three- mile limit. The trawl was confiscated, but the vessel was allowed to go. The capture was one of the most exciting character. .The Cockchafer, command ed by Lieutenant Evans, left Lerwick on Tuesday last In consequence of re ports that trawlers were working on the coast of Foula. and reached the is land on Wednesday, but fog prevailed, and no trace of illicit fishers could be seen. After the Cockchafer had an chored, Information was received that trawler was at work on the west side of the island, and two boats put off one commanded by Lieutenant Evans and the other by the mate. The next morning the fog lifted, and the mate's boat saw the trawler work ing; close to the rocks, and called upon her to surrender. Though rlne shots were fired at her, however, the trawler cut her trawl ropes and steamed away. Just then the Cockchafer appeared on the scene and gave chase, but as she had to pick up her boats, the trawler got a good start. The gunboat fired two blank shots, and then her fourteen pounder were loaded and fired, but the distance was to great for the shots to take effect, and the master of the trawl er held steadily on his course. On reaching the Orkney coast, the fisher, taking advantage of her smaller draught, entered Calf Sound, where the pursuer was unable to follow, and, a fog coming on, the government vessel returned by easy stages to sei?e the trawl. The trawler, with srreat daring, had also returned for the same purpose, but the fog again lifted, and the ves sels found themselves almost close to gether. The gunboat fired a shot across the bows of the smaller vessel, and the master, seeing that escape was hope less, surrendered. Yesterday morn ing the master, Matthew Tilford, was charged, before Sheriff Shennan, with trawling within the three-mile limit, and pleaded guilty. The court Imposed fine of 85, with the option of nrty days' imprisonment, and highly com plimented the commander and crew of. the Cockchafer. UNIFORM PRICES THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES.
