MODERN ARCHITECTURE. It Tendency to Kngllafc Ideaa-Ite Utilitarianism. There Is one feature cotumom to flsaay English private bouses that la seldom found In American residences, at least under the same name. This la the "of lice." One frequently finds mention of this In descriptions of English resi dences, even In the stately country bouses, and the term often ceafownda the uninitiated. The word "office" has large latitude In America, and Is gen erally applied Indiscriminately to any place where business la transacted, do ing duty equally for the English "cham ber" and "shop." But the one use It neTer baa In this country la that cor responding to Its use In the English private room of the master or the mis tress of the bouse, where business let ters are written and filed, where ser- DONE TO DEATH IN A SPANISH DUNGED W.

There are comparatively few men of leisure In this country, and many details that the English gentle man Is compelled to look after In his own home are here cared for at the regular place of business of the head of the household. Hut still much re mains to be dono at home, and the va rious cases and tronblemcnta are met and conquered In the "library," or if the householder Is blessed with such a room, In what we have designated with very questionable taste, the master's "den." In many cases the .word may be appropriate enough, but It baa too much auggcstlon of the brute creation. "Office" is Infinitely better, being more significant of the uses of the room, as well aa more euphonious.

Almost every house that la built with more pretentions than a cottage contains a "den," and while the room la generally small, It frequently occupies ono of the choicest and most prominent places In tbo house. Not un commonly a greatdcal of care and ex pense la lavished upon tho finishing and furnishing of the "den." It la felt that this corner of the bouse should reflect the taste of the masculine clement, even though all the rest bo given over to the feminine Influence. For this reason the den sometimes degenerates Into a mere smoking room, and blazes with all of the barbaric colors of tbs Orient The design illustrating this article clearly defines the English Idea of the oflearoom. The den Is shown connect lnf with library, the "evening" room of lbs house, with outside entrance from rear porch.

RICARDO RUIZ, the American cltiten whoso mysterious death la a Spanish dungeon at Ounnabacoa, Cuba, stirred tho Stnta Department, Is a graduate of a Philadelphia dental college, which gave him a diploma In 1878. The doctor spent six years In the United States and became so attached to America and Americans that he decided to become a cttlsen, and when bo returned to Cuba he took his papers of naturalisation with him. He opened a dentist's office and waa living peaceably with bis wife and children when he was arrested by the Spanish authorities and thrown into the prison from which he was never to come forth alive. The charge on which the doctor was arrested is asserted to bo fals by even those who sympathise with the cause of Spain. Ruts hail no connection whatever with the Cubans. Ills associates were all Spaniards. Even his wife Is a Caatlllaa. He was charged with having aided several insurgents in wrecking a Spanish military train a abort distonco ontsldo of Ounnnbncon. If the Spaniards bid raised the merest show of Inquiry they would havo found that It was Impossi ble for the doctor to have been present at tho train wrecking. On the night of the deed be attended a reception just across the way from his own house, and left k at 10 o'clock to return home. Threo Spanish gentlemen accompanied him, and stayed at his house chatting until after 11 o'clock. As tho train was wrecked at 1M0 o'clock that night at was tanysslblo for Ruls to hare been ono of the wreck tat party. When he left the United States Dr. Ruls took with him a lot of books whleh were Ms favorites. Among these were tho "Life of Patrick Henry," "Life ef WashlBgton," "Webster's Speeches" and "Cooler's Constitutional Limitations."

The rooms are so arranged as to show, with every advantage of light, the works of art that are exhibited In them. It has been finished at a cost, Including the site, of al most $1,000,000, and the best Judges of these enterprises say that nothing was left .eases sad no feature forgotten that would render the building suitable for the srpsas fer which It was created. The architecture of the exterior Is of the Neo 'Orectaa style. The Interior Is finished In pink granite, Georgia white marble and laalasa limestone generally, and the whole structure is perfectly fireproof. The . sculptures are perhaps the most Interesting contents of the gallery, The collec tion ef bronzes Is an exceptionally fine one. The floors of the rooms in which the statuary la placed are of oak or mosaic In marble. The second floor, in which are 'bang the pictures, is finished in white marble. On the upper floor there arc eight large rooms for the exhibition of pictures, and one of these rooms has been set 'aside for the works of American painters. The building is lighted by eleetrlclty and hsated by steam. A feature of the gallery la a large audltorlumhrlth a seating sapasitr of 250, for the use of the Cereeran School of Art the person of William P. St John, at his borne In New York City. He took a very prominent part In the last Pres idential campaign and gained national renown. Hla death will be a great loss to the free silver party. William P. St. John waa born In Mo bile, Ala., In 1840. After having re ceived a common school education In his native city he wont with relatives to England, whore he continued his studies. Thenco he went to Berlin, where he attended one of the gym nasiums, and subsequently went to Massachusetts. There bis education received Its finishing touches. In 1807 he removed to New York City. For several years he had charge of tbo credits and prices of Havemoyer sV Elder, which became the nucleus of the American Sugar Refining Company. Al the time of tbo formation of the corn pany Mr. St John was secured by George W. Perkins, who bad Just been elected President of the Mercantile Bank. He selected Mr. St. John as cashier of the Mercantile. . Mr. St John gave an Immense amount of satisfaction to the direct ors of the bank, and when Mr. Perkins died, In 1883, be was made President In hla place. Tho Institution became very successful undor Mr. St John's management Ho became a stockhold er lu tbo Mercantllo Bank and became a director of tbo Hamilton National Bank of Harlem and of the Second Na tlonal Bank. Ho was an elder In the Madison Squnro Prosuyterlan Church and was ono of tbo organlzora of the Southern Society.
