Such a suit has just been filed by a Framlngham man, who al leges that the general's carelessness cost him $8,000. . Bicycle frames stamped out In two halves by one operation from a steel plate are a recent Birmingham novelty. The halves are clamped together, and though the frame is not so elegant as one made by another process it Is per fectly rigid and can be made at a cost of $2 instead of $12.50. An English woman when told of the fleath of a wealthy but uncultured neighbor, pronounced this unique obit uary: "He was so good and kind and helpful to me in all sorts of ways; he was so vulgar, poor, dear fellow, that ' we could not know him in London; but , we shall meet htm in heaven." In twenty-five years the paper pulp industry of Wisconsin has grown from nothing to an investment of '$20,000,000, the present daily output of the mills of the State being over 2,500,000 pounds, while the value of the product is now considerable more than $6,250,000 a year. New York and Maine are the only States which now surpass Wisconsin in this i Industry. . China is learning what it costs to go to war and come home licked. Japan has received from China already the proceeds of a loan of $30,000,000 raised in France on a Russian guarantee, and of a loan of $80,000,000 raised with Ger man co-operation through the agency of the Hong-Kong and Shanghai bank. Both loans were secured By mortgage ing the tariff revenue, which was last year $16,375,000. China has yet a large sum to pay Japan. If she pays in May next ehe will have but $60,000,000 to pay, but if she avails herself of her'op. tlon she may get clear in 1902 by pay. ing $82,500,000 in installments continued to that date. Japan will thus have re ceived for her exertions in the recent war some $240,000,000 in cash, besides Formosa and the Chinese navy, which was worth several millions. The Russian papers report that dur ing his recent visit to Paris for the pur. pose of studying the Napoleonic epoch he painter Verestchagin made an in teresting discovery fully confirming his accuracy as to the costume In which he had depicted Napoleon during the campaign of 1812. Vereetchagin had teen eomewhat criticised for represent ing .the great conqueror in a guise re- Bembllng that of an Arctic explorer. While searching the libraries and mu- Beufhs of Paris he discovered in the Army Museum a small water color by General Lejeune, aide-de-camp of Mar shal Berthier, representing Napoleon at the battle of Eylau. In this contempo rary sketch Napoleon is painted wear ing a heavy pelisse trimmed with sable, and a fur bonnet with flaps covering the ears and a lappet to cross the mouth. The Southern Presbyterian General assembly, in a recent session, initiated a measure which has been contemplat ed in the church for several years for organizing a separate colored Presby terian Church. The Committee on Col ored Evangelization brought in a rec ommendation that the colored members be allowed to withdraw from the white churches and form independent church, es, with independent presbyteries, syn. ods and general assembly. President Williams, of the Colored Seminary of Abbeville, S. C, spoke strongly in be half of a separate church for his people, informing the assembly that they did Hot want to be turned out, but to be given leave to withdraw and establish a church of their own request, readily granted by the Convocation before which at previous meetings the subject had received a full measure of discussion. . A valuable exhibit of Indian heraldry and symbols is promised for the Omaha exhibition next year. Its preparation is in the hands of James Mooney, a rep resentatlve of the Bureau of Ethnology of the Department of the Interior. Mr. Mooney is a white man and an adopted member of the Kiowa-Apache Indians, with whom he has spent much time, his tribe membership permitting him to pursue his investigations without excit ing the suspicion or distrust of the In. dians. ,To make the exhibit as realistic as well as picturesque it has been de elded to reproduce on a similar scale the last great cuu: 11 of the amalga mated tribes of the Klowas and Ap aches. There will be 250 tepees In the encampment, and a medicine lodge or temple. Each topee Is to be marked with the emblems of the subdivision of the tribe to which ita occupants belong, and in front of each tepee will be a pole from which will be suspended the shield and other war Implements of the occu pant, each shield being emblazoned with the proper heraldic device. KOOM a i i li i: TOP. Philadelphia Is a little slow, but it has made what seems to be a practical plan to take itself out of the ranks of cities with the unenviable reputation of not providing sufficient publlo school ac commodations. It will do this, too, without the erection cf new buildings and without other additional expense. Indeed, the plan may prove to be an economical one. Investigation disclos ed that while many schools were over crowded, some of them to the extent of adopting the half-time system, other schools, often in the immediate vicin ity, had seats to spare. The rigid dis tricting lines which brought about this condition of affairs are to be made flexible, and with this change it is ex pected to give each pupil a seat, al though some of the children may have to walk a little further to school. This additional burden,- however, Is to be placed upon the older children, the pu pils in the higher grades. There Is al ways a falling off in attendance as the higher grades are reached, and it is found that the highest class of two or more rooms may be consolidated with out exceeding the maximum number al lotted to one teacher. In this consoli dation comes the economy of the change, as fewer teachers will be need ed. The change takes place colncident ly with the appointment of officers to enforce the compulsory education law, the city narrowly escaping the enact ment of the farce of corralling truants for whom no school room had been pro vided. . Possibly something like this might work well in some other cities where there is room at, the top. JVO KEST l'Ult ASVBonr, There is no rest for the wicked and there Is just as much for the good. The good have to keep pegging away in or der to be good themselves, and do their part toward making others good. This being the case it behooves those jvho call themselves the good in politics to be everlastingly busy. Some Pennsyl vania Republican papers having ad vised that the people be given a rest from politics for some months before the next campaign is begun the Phila delphia Press remarks: The managers, or leaders, or bosses, or whatever best designates them, never rest. They are engaged in politics all the time, and nothing suits them better than to have the people take a rest, for it is then that they get the advantage othe peo ple. Almost within a few weeks dele gates to a convention for the nomina tion of a candidate for governor will be eleoted. The political managers are already setting up the delegates, and candidates are flooding a number of counties with written appeals. If fit candidates for the legislature are to be nominated in the several districts the people cannot afford to take a rest from politics. Some of the candidates will be nominated within the next three months, and in those districts where nominations are not actually made within that time the managers will have the prospective candidates pretty well fixed, unless the people have taken the trouble to arrange for making the nomination themselves. True enough. Those who call them selves the good in politics don't get up early enough, "stay up late enough, or work hard enough while they are up. So those who are called the bad in poli tics take the cake. nucKr.uss Chicago. The trustees of the Chicago public 11 brary have decided to open the doors of that institution on Sunday, from twelve to six, for the circulation of books, as well as for the use of the reading and reference rooms. Chicago is a very wicked city, and this new evi aence or us wiciceaness win sena a shock through all New -England. But what better could be expected of Chica go, with Carter Harrison for mayor, and Hinkey Dink, Bath House John, etc., for "city fathers?" Still, those who live in glass houses should not throw stones out of them, and those who have beams in their eyes should go to an eye doctor. Do our readers know that right here in pious Connecticut there is a public library which is open only on Sunday? There is, and it is in the good old town of Ledyard. Moreover the library is sit uated next to the Congregational meeting house at "the centre." and those who go to meeting there take books out of the library before or af ter meeting. The excuse given for this variation from our good old ways is that circumstances make Sunday the only day available for the residents of the surrounding region. They live too far away, as a rule, to use the library during the other six day, but on Sun day they come to church, and what more natural than that the volumes on the shelves of the adjacent institution should be obtainable at that time? Thus are convenience and economy of time put before principle. Ledyard isn't a very, thriving or growing place, but it probably would be if it were not so wicked with Its library. Just look at New Haven, booming along with its publlo library carefully and piously shut on Sunday. If people must read on Sunday let them read the Sunday newsDaoers or the pleasing and Instructive books that are to be found in the Sunday school libraries, which can, of course, ba piously and properly opened on Sun day. It is just as wicked to open a public library on Sunday as it is to ride to church on a bicycle. l ASlllON XOTES. Marching That Made Work. When It is planned, as is so fre quently the case with swell dressmak ers, to make the skirt and bodice of a gown match in their trimming, a very elaborate rig is sure to result if a start is made with a highly wrought bodice. Illustrative ot tnls Is the pic ture put here, which shows a dress made of grey silk marked with stripes In two widths, the wider stripe a trifle darker tlian the other. Its bodice had draped bretellcs of the silk, but sides, back, epaulettes and yoke were of pleated gray velours. Similar pleats formed the cuffs, and vest; belt and col lar were crimson velvet. Then on each side of the skirt's front breadth were panels made of bias pleats of the ve lours, each pleat adorned with an oxy dized silver button. A closet full of simple gowns could be had for the price of this one, and could be made with less trouble. Orange is accepted as a fashionable shade for young women and proves stunningly becoming to a lot of them. Indeed, some women suddenly shine forth in unexpected beauty of coloring under the Influence of a yoke of orange, mirror velvet This Is especially true of the girl whose coloring is a little coarse; the muddlness of her read and the dullness of her white take on clearness at once under the reflection of orange. Certain types of white blondes show a delicate pink in their cheeks and a purity or whiteness in the skin that no other coror makes so delicate as does orange, while the rus set maiden Is a dream of vitality and vivid coloring If you give her a dash of the same bright color. There are all sorts of shades to choose from starting with an almost butter yellow with a tinge of red in it, to a deep burnt-crust copper shade of yellow. The color com bines royally with rich blue, is highly effective with a yellowisn green of the chatreuse order, and with either clear while or plain black Is charming. , FLORETTE. our.

The mind will be refurnished from the mar vel of light, grace and coloring, with pictures framed as memory may af- Apollinans "THE QUEEN OF TABLE WATERS")) BEWARE OF SUBSTITUTIONS ford. Art can never supersede naturs. Art in accord with nature, reverent before the aspects of fields, forest and roadway, finds, even although It may yet be far and away ffom taking rank with the hand unseen, it gains to itself a productive power not otherwise ob tainable. Why should the artist study human models only? Why not be one of na ture's pupils who has for her producer the highest the one Creator? The out-of-doors studio was never more beauti ful with Its freest of offerings to obser vation than in the present year, safely may it be said. Superb has been the autumn sunlight. Fair unto perfect- ness have eyes beheld the skies that looked benignly down upon the earth beneath the good old earth, still over spread with greenest sward beyond the dry and dusty highways. City splendors; classical, friendly, elm-boughs, have surely attracted dur ing the sunlighted days so recently de parted. Rural roads have stretched their Interminable lengths with win ning invitation, out . with the rreat heart of nature, many tired spirits have found peace with self, and freedom from the fret and care of necessary 'taking thought' for this so fleet mortal existence. What a calm broods over one when left alone with nature! Her speech, though silent, Is strong Her word of love to the appreciative heart is un failing. The few clinging leaves, some of them tremulous, some of them frol icsome still, upon the trees, In late Oc tober, seem like the witchery of humor and pathos in the blending. They lure a smile to human Hps. Their tender whisperings receive response from minds tot;'hed secretly by parting thoughts. Rock, hill and stream the placid lake unite in rhythmical strains not heard, but music-toned to quick ened sight that greets with inward pense as acute as that which acknowl edges the harmonies prepared for the delicacv of the ear. Flowers of the forest have "lain them down to sleep," guarded by the kindly mother of them all. Who of us shall be present at their next awakening? Wrap their couches warmly! Watch their places securely. O earth, that must at last make room for us all to lie as in rest of body while the spirit goes soaring onwardB! Shel ter the flowers for us, while we erst re main; the song-birds have flown from chilling winds. Who, who shall protect them if humankind betray the trust? Even into the country-sides the shame of human womankind, ' has reached. Still are the songsters slain for vain adornment. Still man pursues the airy creatures for this vanity of vanl ties! He enriches his purse from the spoils. ,,, God looks upon the terrible work of man. The Father of Spirits does not acquaint us (with words) as to His thought of womankind, in this passion for following cruel custom. But, does woman think of the Father, whose cre ation owns its inherent sacredness? Does her heart feel security in prayer, serenity in so-called praise of God while she upholds to heavenly sight the spectacle of murdered innocence her head the pedestal of woe! ., Will she wait for law the common world-law- to pass sentence upon murderer and wearer of our birds? To glance In at the millinery windows one would vouch for this. Such law has been passed in another state than our own Connecti cut. Could we but write the law (un forced) within our hearts! Then it should be handed down in love to our kind as years of light Increase. Who that has read Thoreau and Em erson, Burroughs and Higglnson, hav ing walked, as It were, with them through the depths of the forests, and seen through their eyes the haunts of gay and tuneful birds, could go again for the purpose of murder? What wo man or girl could deck her hat or bon net with precious bird or beautifully painted wing? Who that has learned through the novels of the author Cable (so at one with nature!) and associated with the essayists of our time in their admira tion of the beauty, the songs, of varl ous birds once abounding, could des're to destroy or wear any of the same? There sometime seems a ruthlesBness In plucking wlldwood blossoms from their parent stem for the sake of passing pleasure. But the atmosphere Is robbed of very life when feathered wings must cease to impart their gi'ts through human wantonness. Instinct with air and light, the bird-form soars upward man making it descend, who forgets his higher power, to himself as cend in thought, in spirit. Woman au thorizes by her willingness to his deed. November portends a season of seclu sion for nature as we have known and enjoyed her in the warm, the mellow days. But the work of production has no respite. Repose is nature's signal strength. It Is November. From the heights one last grand picture has been wit nessed. It was as though the sunset- ting of a bright, a heart-full day. The tree-tops bore the crimson hues, changing now to russet-brown. Softest of coloring underspread the oak-trees in their hardy holding of the rustling COLONIAL SILVERWARE. Not all of us arc the happy pos sessors of Silver that has been handed down through generation from old Colonial days. But in the recent reproductions of the quaint forms and chaste adornments copied from Paul Revere and other early American silversmiths, have been heighten ed by the superior workmanship of modern times and methods. THE GEORGE H. FORD COMPANY. foliage. The sunlight glanced lovingly upon a brilliant garden of chrysanthe mums; a solitary spot of culture on the summit of the rural hillside, which city-bred eyes would gladden to behold. Good-bye was said to this so wondrous place of beauty. Again, from its half concealment, behind clouds at once dispersed and revealing kindliest blue above, looked forth the sunshine. Sud denly field, plain and near-by forest were aglow with golden light; hope and restfulness were written in heavenly characters In all the view around. The Placid lake beyond lay in the silence of the brooding shadows far below. This was an autumnal farewell, straight from God. Nor will He desert His creatures, although the season changes, and the human heart, like an unseeing child, would cling to loving-kindnesses In the present, to pleasures swiftly flee ing while it draws full breath.
