About $400,000 of world's fair money still remains to be distributed among the stockholders at Chicago. It has been tied up by litigation. 'A wife in Sedgwick, Kansas, has sued tor divorce "because at the time of her marriage the husband did not inform her that he was subject to epilepsy." 'And she gave him fits besides. According to a writer in the Inde pendent, only four of the states of the Union use officially the term common wealth, these being Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Kentucky. It is said that if the earth's atmos phere were suddenly increased in thickness to seven hundred miles the eun could not penetrate it and the earth would soon be wrapped In ice. It is also said that there is no immediate Janger that the earth's atmosphere will be so increased. The London Lancet prints a long ar ticle on "the therapeutical aspects of talking, shouting, singing, laughing, crying, sighing and yawning." All are said to have their hygienic uses. Talk ing te pronounced a- healthful occupa tion, good for heart disease, and to some extent a. substitute for bodily ex ercise. Citizens of Elizabeth, New Jersey, Tiave been violently opposed to the de sire of the Standard Oil company to lay a pipe across the city. Permission to lay this pipe would have to come from the citl council, so a delegation of property owners appeared there the other day to protest, and one of them carried a coil of rope into the chamber juet to intimate in gentle fashion what would be the fate of the councilman who supported the oil company. A machine to blow glass is one of the recent achievements. At Muncie, In diana, the machines are now used in making fruit jars. According to the Iron Age, "the introduction of these machines in glass making is fully as revolutionary in that trade as was the introduction of the Bessemer converter and the open-hearth furnace in the iron trade, the type-setting machine in the printing business, the self binding har vester in agriculture, the spinning Jen ny in the cotton trade, the sewing ma chine among seamstresses, &c. The window glass manufacturers are antic ipating the early perfection of blowing machines for their branch of the trade." An Interesting exhibit at the Trans misslssippi exposition at Omaha is to be the "Tom Thumb" train, so called because it is said to be the smallest in the world. It Is the work of a young man without technical training. The engine weighs four hundred and fifty pounds, and its length, with the tender, is six feet seven and one-half inches, The cylinder is one and one-half by two and one-half inches, and the driving wheels are eight inches in diameter. The engine, however, hauls six obser vation cars, in each of which two chil dren may be comfortably seated. The entire length of the train is twenty- nine feet. Six gallons of water in the tender tank and five in the boiler will furnish sufficient eteam to propel it tor two hours. An effort is being made in Pennsyl vania to raise the grade of its cheese to that produced in neighboring states, particularly in New York. It is sup posed that the inferiority of the Penn sylvania cheese .is due to a robbing of the milk of its cream before it is con verted into cheese. To remedy this the recent legislature provided for grades of cheese, and under this enactment full-cream cheese must contain 32 per cent, of butter fat, three-fourths cream 24 per cent., one half cream 16 per cent.. one-fourth cream 8 per cent., and skimmed cheese anything below 8 per cent. To the complaint that the aver age sample of creamery milk will not make a cheese having 32 per cent, of butter fat, the agricultural authorities of the state point to reports in New York where a similar law exists, and where creamery milk to the amount of E,000,000 pounds from 15,000 cows, when made into full cream cheese, showed an average of 33.83 per cent, of butter fat. As proof also of the advantages of a grading law it is alleged that in ferior Pennsylvania cheese has been shipped to New York factories, where, for a. consideration it has been branded aa New York cheese, to the injury of the consumer, and also of New York's reputation as a cheese producer. I'lll.Y exdi:i. The fire chiefs' boom was like a boom In the stock market biggest and most glorious at the end. Yesterday was full of interest and excitement for both the participators in the doings and the spectators, and last night's blaze of glory on the old Green was wondered at and admired by an even larger crowd than was delighted by the first even ing's illumination. The fire chiefs depart well pleased with their visit and their treatment here. New Haven heartily reciprocates their good feeling. The city has been well pleased with them and has learn ed much from them besides being pleas antly excited and stirred up. The gen eral feeling is that the convention has been a shining success In every way, and this success will encourage the people of New Haven to other like ef forts. And let it not be forgotten that New Haven Is now the abode of the Presi dent of the International Association of Fire Engineers. MJHHIliU IT IX. Wheat climbed yesterday in a way to do the soul of the agriculturist and the bull speculator good. Six cents added in one day to the price of a bushel is not bad for him that hath the bushel. The wheat market yesterday acted as if there were no wheat in the world ex cept a few measrre samples and as if the demand were more urgent, than the demand of the summer girl for some body to flirt with. How high the price will go and how hlgrh it will stay can not be told except by those who want to sell when it is high enough, and they name some remarkable figures. Whatever the fluctuation in the price of wheat may be it is pretty certain that the price will not be low this year. Such bulges as that of yesterday must seem t,o the flabbergasted silverites as if fate was rubbing it into them. The previous great rise right in the face of the great fall in silver was sufficiently sickening to the silver theorists, and yesterday's addition was more than sufficiently sickening to them. A 8ISXHlBT.il SUGtiliSTIOX. The total value of exports of domestic, merchandise for the twelve months ending June 30 was $1,050,987,000, the in crease over the previous year having been 19 per cent. Of all this the United Kingdom took $483,265,000 worth, and the United Kingdom and British pos sessions took $593,400,000 of it, or 56.4 per cent, of our total exports. Eussia took only $8,016,000 worth, and South America took but $33,768,000 worth. That Is, the United Kingdom and the British possessions took of our surplus product last year seventeen and one half times as much as South America. fourteen times as much as South America and Eussia together and five and one-half times as much as South America, Mexico, Russia, Asia, Africa and Oceanica (leaving out the British possessions). In view of these facts the Eailroad Gazette makes the fol lowing sensible suggestion: When we are looking about for means to in crease our foreign trade it is well to bear in mind the fact that a gain of 1 per cent, in our sales to our kinsmen would be equal in amount to a gain of 74 per cent, in our sales to Eussia, 37 per cent. In our sales to South America and 50 per cent, in our sales to China. Obviously, the business man muet work along the lines of least resistance or he must fail, for some one else will inev itably find those lines. One would sup pose that the same policy would be good for a business nation. That being granted, it eeems fair to assume that it is easier to add 1 per cent, to our British trade, where all the great ma chinery of trad& already exists, than 74 per cent., or 50 per cent., or 17 per cent, to our trade with much poorer and much less civilized countries. run other side. The Klondike excitement is diminish ing and the other side of the story is leaking out. A rich wholesale San Francisco merchant, George L. Fish, who has returned from Dyea, says that when he left there were 1,500 men at Dyea or on the trail leading to the Chil koot pass, while at Skagaway and on the way up to the White pass there were 3,500 more. Few will get to Daw son City this year. There will be thou sands at Skagaway this winter. There isn't a building in the place nothing for shelter but tents. Some of the ad venturers are offering their $400 outfits for $100. One poor fellow in the Chil koot pass who was reduced nearly to starvation stole a side of bacon from a pack. The two owners caught him and shot him dead in his tracks. " The pros pectors held an inquest and justified the killing. Careful and conservative bus iness men writing from Dyea and other points in Alaska say that the ignorance of the conditions the prospectors have had to meet is appalling. Of the hun dreds who sailed with him from San Francisco, writes one, not one in twen ty had any definite information as to how to reach his destination. Winter will soon set in in the Klon dike, and next spring there will be some sad news from that region. i-as it i ox xoris.s. Fluftery ia Its Last lays. Little in the announcements of fail and winter fashions is marked by rad ical changes. Little seems definitely settled, but evidently a distinct effort is to be made to ward off the awful dread of ruffles and tuffles being ex- tended from muslins of slimmer to wools of winter. Fashion is capricious, and If she decides to make women wear their sealskin capes ruffled from hem to throat they'll all try to do it, but it seems that a distinct effort is to be made to abolish ruffles and flounces with the going out of light materials. Belted bodices will remain in favor, and blouse and box-blouse effects will con tinue, though the annual effort to in troduce the princess will again be made. Already some light cloth dress es for fall wear are being sent over and these may be regarded as straws show ing the way the winter wind of fashion is supposed to be making its way. One is a nobby street rig of very light cloth, checked black and white, and is made with a bodice buttoning double breasted, the entire front being a box ed pleat bagging well over a white belt. The double row of buttons are large cut jet. The belt is white leather, rather wide and buckled with black. The bodice fits without a wrinkle in the back, the cloth being stretched to the figure without seams. The skirt seems almost to be fitted in the same manner at the hips, and there are a great many rows of narrow black braid at the hem. Another of these forerunners is sketched herewith. It was black etam- inie barred with white and lined with scarlet. The skirt was arranged in double box-pleats on either side of the front, each pleat held down by a black passementerie ornament. The Jacket bodice had slashed tab-like fronts, and was trimmed with passementerie, a V of the same decorating the back. The belt was black silk and small orna ments similar to those on the skirt trimmed the sleeves. The vest was white satin veiled with numerous chif fon frills and chiffon trimmed collar and wrists.

"I know it," replied Mrs. Tenspot. "but how would a red stamp look on envelopes of that lovely violet shade?

The last Quarterly Review has an arti cle on Eastern affairs, from which the following extracts are taken: Those who are personally acquainted with the Sultan agree in describing him as remarkably gentle, polite, and amiable, with an active mind, great natural penetration of intellect, ant no culture. M. Blancard, in one of the books which we have placed at the head of this article, speaks of him as a prince whose heart is always open to every generous sentiment, He has suc ceeded in gaining the complete con fidence of more than one experienced diplomatist and among them the pre sent Minister of Foreign Affairs in France, who, in a very famous essay in the Revue de Paris, endeavored to excuse, ' or even defend, some of the most sinister acts of Abdul-Hamid. Midhat Pasha, one of the most remark able men in the Turkish empire of our time, and an exceptionally keen observer, spoke to the writer of this article in terms of enthusiastic ad miration of the Sultan. His disciple, Mourad Bey, now the leader of the young Turkish party, acknowledges that the throne of the Ottoman Sultans has not been for centuries occupied by a sovereign so irreproachable in his morals as Abdul-Hamid. The question then arises, how can a Royal makes the food pure, wboUiome and delicious. . Ifll twmm Absolutely Pur ROYAL BAKINQ POWDER 00., NEW YORK. sovereign who appears so good be re sponsible for the wholesale massacres in Armenia and Constantinople. The explanation seems to be that the Sultan Is dominated by terror to such an extent as entirely to have lost the balance of his reason. He is afraid on the one hand, of the daggers of fanatics who blame" him for concessions to Christian Powers and for loss of territory. On the other hand, ' he trembles lest the young Turkish party should procure his deposition and per haps compass his death. Fear has cured him 0( arrogance and pride, pas sions and vices, but it has also killed every generous , sentiment. He is said to have been naturally good, and to have sympathized deeply with human suffering in all its forms. In the early years of his reign he shrank from al lowing capital punishment to be Inflic ted in any circumstances, but at the first moment when his fears were aroused he sent hundreds of men to a lingering and cruel death. He Is a true Mussulman, and respects all con nected with Moslem worship, but young Mussulman theologians having made themselves obnoxious to him in 1892, he ordered them to be thrown into the Bosphorus in scores. He is said to be a good father, fond of his children, an excellent master who loads with favors those dependent on him. A short time ago, however, having to pass through the city of Constantinople, to assist at a religious ceremony, he took the youngest of his sons between his knees in his carriage.to protect him from the daggers of the assassins, and he in sisted on Osman Pasha, the old hero of Plevna, sitting on the front seat, hoping that the widespread popularity of the brave old soldier would protect him from dynamite and explosive bombs. The' Sultan's native fanaticism is encouraged both by fear and by evil counsellors. One of the chief counsellors of the Sultan in this matter is a man' named Aboul Houda, a fanatical dervish, whose character bears a striking resemblance to that of Mucklewrath in "Old Morta lity." This man came to Constanti nople, bringing with him from Asia Minor a great reputation for sanctity and wisdon. When he arrived in the imperial city he wag instantly surround ed by vast multitudes! who hung upon his words as he' preached against the corruption of the age, the luxury of the great, the lukewarmness of the believers the concessions to the infidel, and the feebleness of the commander of the Faithful. The Sultan, frightened at the authority he was acquiring, took him into the palace. Well-informed people say that, at certain hours, the Sultan and the dervish meet for pious exer cises and practices of penance, and strange stories are told of incanta tions and the raising of spirits. The Reviewer assures us that the Sultan has in contemplation a fresh series of massacres this time in Mace donia. In this connection a new per son appears on the scene. Some ten years ago there was a Pasha intrusted with government in northwestern Turkey remarkable for his eccentricities and many stories are told illustrating his methods of ad ministration. One day, In the depth of winter, when the ground was covered with snow, he passed by a village inn, on the outside of which some donkeys heavily laden were tied to a pole and were shivering in misery and cold. In side the inn their drivers were comfort ably gathered round the fire, engaged in drinking a bowl of heated wine. The Pasha ordered the load to be taken off the donkey and placed on the shoulders of the men, who were then, by his orders, tied up where the animals had been secured. He then took the donkeys Into the inn and offered them himself the heated wine which had been pre pared for their drivers.

Jy luinru casion, also in winter, he observed a poor woman crying at the door of a church, because the priest would not baptize her child without getting from her a sum of money which she did not possess. The Pasha sentenced the priest to be stripped naked, and then to be drawn through the pond for cattle, in order, as he said, to teach him to baptize for nothing. The great enemy of this Pasha was a man who is now a very important person in the Western provinces of the Turkish empire, who is known as the Mollah Zeka and is in character not unlike the dervish who has the special confidence of the Sultan. He was not long ago under detention in Constantinople, and when he re turned to his own country he was received with frantic enthusiasm. M. Berard, in his book on Macedonia, de scribes his triumphant return and how the Mollah Zeka remained apparently insensible to the homage of his people, as, with his turban forced down upon his brows, his eyes halt closed and fixed upon the ground, and his hand engaged in telling his beads, he passed through the crowds of his admirers. This man is destined to play a leading part in the massacres in Macedonia, which, there is reason to believe, are even now in contemplation. The massacres in Armenia were organized by men like him, strange compounds of hypocrisy and fanaticism, who spent some time in Constantinople, then returned to their country, spoke to the people as they were gathered round the mos ques, and communicated to them the wishes of the Master.
