Notable Landmark Saved by tin- Song of tho Villago Harbor. Newark Call It was announced recently that one of the mobt notable trees In tins country was doomed by tlie inarch of improvement. His a hugeandaged sycamore, orbulton ball, standing In the middle of the sidewalk on Stephen street, Belleville. Records show the tree to be at least 00 ycarsold and In that time it has grown to a diameter of seven Teet at the butt. The sycamore Is invariably a most plc turesmic tree, ami this is one of the most pic ttiresqueof sycamores. ContractorMcCann. who is engaged upon the task of widening and .straightening Stephen street, decided that the tree must be cut down, and It really looked as if the monarch would be over thrown, for there Is little of that sort of sentiment in Itellcvillc which would move to save a tree when there is plenty to talk about In the political field. There was one man who loved the tree enough to go to the contractor with tlie fa miliar lines. "Woodman, spare," etc. It was Christian Orthoir, the barber, whose shop Is on the corner of "Willlamand Stephen Streets, and is ovcrsnaaowen oy uk uig tree. lie is a good singer and rendered the old poem so well that tears came Into Con tractor McCann's eyes and he promised to 'touch not a single bough," but aid he would have to do something tot heold trunk, and finally decided to cut an arched passage through it. It will amuse the children and satlffy their elders, as it will probably save the hi.' tree for years to come. AYhca the electric lighting plant is completed an in candescent light will be put over the arch on each side of the tree. ONCE A COOK, XOW PREMIER. AiiMrinnStute.-iiinn'WlioTrns Reared Anions Pots and Kettles. l'rurMMi'fj Weekly. The son of a cook is now premier of Austria. His name is Casslmir Felix Ba deni, and thus far in life he has basked in UieMinshlne of fori uncs smile. His luck began I wo jears before he was born, when his father, who had been a very good cook, was created a count. The title was at the time an empty honor, for the distinguished chef had so little money that he could not live with the necessary Jignity. For a time it looked as though ills two eons would be compelled to toil for a living, but luck again came to their rescue. Their mother's brotlrer, Count Mier, had married the famous German actress, Anna "Wierer, and this childless lady lxcamc so attached to the two Badcni boys that she bencnuthed to them her entire fortune. "Thus relieved of the necessity of earning a competence by their own efforts Count Badcni procured an excellent education, was graduated as doctor of philosophy, and entered the Austrian civil f-ervicc. He was genial m manner, u:iu a great urai oi money to spend and was not averse to spending it. and he soon made himself tho most popular Pole at the court of Vienna. In 1871 he twc-anic district chief of Zol kicw, and two years later entered the ministry of She interior. In 1888 he was made governor of Galicia, an office he held until he was recently appointed prime minister of Austria by Emperor Franz Joseph. He is said to be worth about $2,500,000, but his younger brother, who hashiicceeded him as governor of Galicia. has been more conservative in his expenditure, and is credited with being the fortunate pos sessor of considerable over $10,000,000. THE DANCE OP THE 130XXETS. All up and down the brilliant house, Through Circle, ilox. Parquet, Sat rows and rows of waiting folk, Men, dames, and damsels gay; All with their bright, expectant looks, Care-free as if in story books, Impatient for tiie play. At last the lights turned, sudden, low, Tiie curtain upward went, Each voice was hushed and garments still With eyes and cars intent Upon the sparkling, lovely scene WlUi elfs and fays the brooks between, Eacli eager face was bent. But one, aghast, could nothing seo Except a monstrous plume; Whlle three red roses high a wave From Taris skill abloom Berorc another's straining eyes, WlUi saucy tilt and savage size. Did loom, and loom, and loom. And hard by this another sat. Meek soul but now a-rage, For two wide-spreading, fnii-like wings Concealed Just half the stage. Sometimes a plnjer's head or hand Or fragment of a dancing band Would fall within ids gauge. One dame behind a ribbon tower, Felt honest, true nniaze That thoughtful she of tiniest loquo Must thus be spoiled of gaze. She knew not Uiat her light aigrette To eyes behind would only let Things pass as through a haze. And so the dance began to right, To left to right again Tlie flower, the feather, silken bow, The wing or bright bird slain. 0 weird chasse! row after row. The bonnets come, the bonnets go.

CHOIR OF FOUR THOUSAND Mighty Chorus ;to Sing For the Endeaypr Convention i Mooting of tho Auxiliary Miibio Com- mlttoo IIclll and l'lniiB for Itn I'oruiatloiiDlscubsed. A most enthusiastic and well attended meeting of the Christian Endeavor auxiliary music committee was held ia the west parlor of the First, Congregational Church last evening. Mr. Charles S. Clark, chairman of the DC music committee, presided. Mr. "W. II. II. Smith, chairman of the committee of 'OG, bpoke for several minutes upon the great opportunities for usefulness and large responsibility which fell to the lot of the auxiliary music committee, and urged that In all their work the best of feeling and harmony of action should prevail. Mr. Clark outlined the plan of the or ganization of the convention chorus. This chorus will be composed of 4,000 voices, and will be known as "The 'G Convention Chorus." At the time of the convention this great chorus will be divided Into four sections, which will bo known as A, B, C and Irrespectively. The preliminary organization of the chorus will be la the hands of the members of the auxiliary music committee. Each member or this committee, which is com posed or one person Trom each Christian Endeavor Society in the District, is di rectly responsible for the work or organ izing a choir in connection with his Chris tina Endeavor Society. The membership of the chorus Is not con fined to Christian Endenvorers, but is open tomeinbersoflhccongregationorthechurch in which a choir is organized, members of adjacent Hpworth Leagues. Baptist Young People's Unions and other young people's religious organizations and such others as are deemed suitable by the or ganizer. Ia fact, aicmbcrship In the choir will HER VERY The Single Eye-glass Is the Newest Fad of the New Woman, and Is Said to Be Rapidly Displacing the Popular Lorgnette Among the Ultra Fash ionable Girls. afford the only opjtortunity for any one else besides delegates to attend the regular sessions of the convention. Seats will be reserved for members of the choir upon the platform with the speakers, and aside fromtheotherseateuponthcplati'ormthcrc will be no reservation, save for the press. The feeling prevailed in the meeting of the committee thnt the music-loving people of the city would heartily co-operate in supporting the effort to make the con vention music a most inspiring feature.

EARKI the nea ltItIKGS have always been among the most favorite ornaments of nearly all the nations of the world, certainly with those which are called civilized. Indeed among the Persians, Habykmlnus, and Carthagiulaiis they were worn by men as well as women. They were always worn by Greek women, from Hera In the "Iliad" down to the Venus de .Medici, whose ears arc pierced for the reception of earrings. Pliny tells us that there was no part Z dress upon which greater exjHmsc was lavished among the Romans. Many Egyptlau carriugs of very beautiful design have l;eii preserved, and these antiuue designs have been Imi tated In modern times. That earrings are constantly meutloned In the Bible and always with approbation any student of the Scriptures knows well. One need only quote that wellTTnown verse from the twenty-fifth chapter of the Hook of Proverbs, where the wisest of men says: "As an earring of gold aud an ornament of fine gold, so ia a wise re prover upon an obedient ear" to show the opiion then held of earrings. Shakes peare, who is regarded by all who have any claim to education to be among the first. If not the first, of obsen'ers of men and manneVs. puts Into the mouth of Romeo the words: LATEST. "0, she doth teach the torches to bum bright! It seems she hangs upon the check of night Like a rich Jewel in an Ethiop's ear. Heau i Tin ty too rich for use. for earth too dear." hug we gather that Biblical and classic history, art, and fashion alike, combine to show that earrings are ornaments which should be worn, and. Indeed, when wc see them we can hardly doubt It. Of course, earrings must be chosen to suit the wearer, and. like bonnets, hats, and dresses, are often sadly unsuitable. They should be chosen with reference to the car. the face, the ngc, the height, and the general bearing of tlie person who is to wear them. But whea this is done It may sarely be said that every woman should wear ear rings. The Gentle "Woman. SUFFRAGE IN NEW ZEALAND. RS. HIRST ALEXANDER, a well known Australian journalisr,now making a short visit in London, says that marked Kocd effects have fol lowed the enfranchisement of women in New Zealand. Thcpremierof New Zealand, Hon. Richard J. Stddon, and the principal journals have all acknowledged, she says, that t he influence of women during the elec tions and after has been beneficial. The women have turned their attention to ameliorating the conditions of prisons, promoting the welfare of children and other measures with which they are spe cially qualified to deal. Giving the vote to women has in no wisedisturbul the even tenor of their domestic ways, and there Is no symptom that it hasreudercdthematall "mannish." The New Zealand government has opened a woman's labor bureau in Wellington, with a woman as manager. Several lady doctors have a good practice, and airs. Alexander spoke with justifiable pride of the good record? made by women at the recent examination at the Melbourne University, where they stood at the head of several clas3 lists and carried of fa large per centage of the honors open to men nnd women alike. The "Woman's Journal. HAIR DRESSED AT AUCTION. HAIR dressed by auction has a most extraordinary sound, yet It is a method in vogue among Parisian society women whose own maids are not expert in the art. In the gay city there is actually one hairdresser, if not more, who has the wit to trade on the vanity and haste of her fair clients. The rush is apt to be a quarter of an hour before dinner or opera time. Then the carriages roll up and tlie bidding begins. There are more customers than nrtlst3 the highest bidder has the first turn. In the excitement It Is not uucommonf or rorty fivc francs to change hands in order that a single "woman may be at her best In time for tho ball. "Unity Club Meeting;.

The "Woman's Relief Corps kept hubbanda sitting up until midnight last night.

Another meeting is to be held tonight to finish the list of ortlces to be filled. The meeting was, being a secret order, held behind closed doors, no one being ad mitted without the password. For a short time a rece.s was taken for an open ses sion to receive the commander-in-chief of theG. A. It., Gen. I. N. Walker of.Indianap olls.

General Walker praised the work of the W. R. C, aSil the valuable assistance ren dered the G. A. R. by the auxiliary. He gave way to Comrade Burst of Illinois, who was one of those who fos tered the W. K. C. movement In its in fancy. Comrade Janney made a patriotic speech and remarks were also made by other com rades. After the visitors had been pre sented with badges by the ladies, they retired, and the"regular order of business was taken up. REPORTS OF COMMITTEES. Reports of committees were called for, nnd Mrs. Eliza Naylor, chairman of the committee on president's report, stated that the recommendation that the per capita tax of members be raised to 10 cents per quar ter was approved by the committee. Last year the per capita tax was S cents per quarter. Recommendation No. 2 was that the department retain its membership In the Federation of Women's Clubs of the Dis trict, the convention to elect a delegate and director to the Federation. It wasapproved.

Miss Ella Ewing Is the daugh ter of people of medium size, and cannot account for her size through nny ancestral line. She is charming In manner and a favorite with hosts of friends aad has a mind of more than common depth. Her height Is eight feet two inches, two inches more than that or Chang, the Chinese giant, yet when seated she would not be noticed as more than a large woman. Her extraordinary development is in the lower limbs. When she rises from a chair It seems as ir she would never atop getting up. Only at the earnest solicitation of friends did she finally consent to exhibit herself, but for the past five years she has been a familiar sight at the various select gather ings in the "West. She has been besieged by letters from circuses and the like, but pre fers to make her own choice of towns. ST0ITING BAIiY'S CRIES.
