There are comparatively few men of leisure In this country, and many details that the lhigllsu gentle man Is compelled to loot; after In his own home are here cared for nt the regular place of business of the bead of the household. Hut still much re main to be done at home, nnd the va rious cases and troublements are met nnd conquered In the "library," or If the householder Is ble.sjed with such a room, In what we have designated with very questionable taste, the master's "don." In many cases the word may be appropriate enotiirh. but It has too much suggestion of the brute creation. "Oillce" Is Infinitely better, being more Klcnltlcant of the uses of the room, as well as more euphonious. Hut whether wo risk the chargo of Anglo-mania, or stick to the thorough- Pirst Tloor ly American "don," the thing Itself is nsuinlng a marked Importance In our architecture. Almost every hotiso that Is built with more pretentious than a cottage contains u "den." and while tho room U generally small, It frequently occupies ouo of the choicest and most prominent places In the house. Not un commonly a great deal of care ami ex pense Is lavished upon the tlulshtng nnd furnishing of tho "den." It Is felt that this corner of the house should reflect the taste of tho masculine element, oven though all the rest be given over to tho feminine Influence. For this reason tho den sometimes degenerates Into a moro umoklng room, nud blazes with oil of tho barbaric colore of tho Orient. Tho design Illustrating this nrtlclo clearly defines the English Idea of tho office room. Tho don Is shown connect ing with library, tho "evening" room of tho house, with outside cntranco from rear porch.

Ills associates were all Spaniards. Uvea his wife Is n Castlllan. He was charged with having nl.lcd several Insurgent In wrecking a Spanish military train a short distance outside of (Siionabacoa.

On the night of the deed ho attended a reception Just across the way from his own house, and left It nt 10 o'clock to return home. Three Spanish gentlemen accompanied him, nnd stayed nt his house chatting until after 11 o'clock.
