It might, indeed,
_ be doubted if in
practical warfare the
strategic erudition of our best military
academies would be a match against the
tricks of border outlaws, whose skill in
outwitting the vigilance of their adversaries
has often been perfected by the
constant practice of many years.
The plan of employing the soldiers of
the refrular army in the service of the
Revenue Department -was repeatedly
tried by the French Government in the
smuggler districts of the Pyrenees, but
had at last to be abandoned as a sheer
waste of time and trouble.
In the more dangerous localities a line
of picket posts has often been extended
for miles on both sides of the headquarter
camp, the interval between the sentries
being so close that they could communicate
without an extraordinary vocal
effort, and in order to test their vigilance
it had been made a rule that the
hours and half hour? of the night must
be called out by the corporal of each detachment,
and repeated from post to
post all along the line.
About 2:45 a. m., in a specially dark
night, the sentries near St. Sauveur, in
the Department of Haute Pyrenees,
shouted out "Three o'clock" with a distinctness
that awakened hundreds of responses
and brought out half a dozen
non-commissioned officers at a double
quick to ascertain the cause of the untimely
vociferations. Angry discussions
followed, and a few minutes later a gang

a few steps of a poor recruit who had
been lepriraanded out of his wits and
would not have ventured to run the risk
of another false alarm if the whole force
of Don Carlos bad passed by with all
their field guns and ammunition wagons.
The smugglers themselves had set the
sentries a-shoutiag, for the double
purpose of profiting bv the ensuing confusion
and of ascertaining the exact
position of each picket post.
? On another occasion a troop of
mounted strangers challenged a sentry
in good French and warned him to give
the countersign more promptly in future,
and, after ordering him to repeat his instructions,
trotted off, leaving the betA

wildered conscript under the impression
that his cross-examiner must have been
the commander of a cavalry patrol from
some neighboring military post.
The French Government derives a
large share of its internal revenue from
the duty on tobacco, and it has been
estimated that an average of 2,500,000
pounds a year are smuggled across the
Spanish and Belgian border in some way

or other. Tobacco, cut up in narrow
strips and rolled up with bundles ol
Btraw, was for years carried across the
Tournay canal bridges on hay wagons
in broad daylight before the douaniere
suspected the trick, though in pursuance
of regulations they had always taken the
precaution of prodding each load of hay
with long-pronged forks.
A still more ingenious stratagem was
tried in the Ardennes between Philippevine
and Rocroy. Finding that many
of their matadors were personally known
to the French gendarmes, a band of
Belgian smugglers conceived the idea of
training dogs for the purpose of crossing
the line in moonlight, or even in day
I time, during the prevalence of a mountain
fog. With a little practice a stout
dog could maiiageto trot and gallop with
ei lead of twenty pounds, distributed
evenly in small, pack-saddle-like bags,
md fastened in the way that in stress of
circumstances the four-footed messenger
;ould dash through the tangled underbrush
without losing his cargo. Dogs
lelected for that sort of work had ac:ompanied
their masters on many prevous
expeditious and came to understand
he danger of the road so well that
hey would now and then retrace their
teps and hide in the thickets till the
vening twilight enable:! them to resume
heir journey with a better chance of
afety. Frontier guards who had accilentally
come across these four-legged
ontrabandists reported that they would
void the public roads as much as possii
ble, and :it sight of a stranger would stop
tc reconnoiter, and at the first suspicious
symptom would turn aside and disappear
like wolves in the gloom of the forest.
Brussels laee9 were smuggled in on a
similar plan. A few lean sheep were
wrapped round aDd round with rolls of
valuable dry goods and then covered
with au artificial fleece so cunningly adjusted
that the trick could not be easily
detected if the woolly contrabands were
driven along with a herd of stall-fed
wethers.
In the free port of Gibraltar English
merchandise of various kinds can be
bought about three times as cheap as in
the neighboring cities of Malaga and
Seville. The result is an irrepressible
contraband traffic, carried on by land
and by seu, by night and by day, but especially
in winter, when sea fogs and
long nights favor the smugglers. Fish
! ing smack9 hover in sight of the harbor
and manage to appioach northbound
| steamers at the first peep of dawn, when
j nine out ten passengers arc fast asleep
and no indiscreet eves are apt to notice
such iittle private transactions as the
picking up of a "float"?a package,
varying in weight from twenty to a hundred
pounds, wrapped up in a waterproof
oilcloth and buoyed up by means
of cork sirips. Half a dozen such floats
can be dropped in an unobtrusive way
after an exchange of preconcerted signals,
and a few hours after the crew of
the smack will transfer the consignment
to accomplices awaiting their arrival in
some unfrequented cove. Revenue cutters
have found by experience that there

is no use in overhauling suspected vessels
of that sort. No trace of a compromising
article can ever be discovered,
the contraband has been stowed away in
double walls, or otherwise concealed in
a manner to aeiy n committee 01 ierrew?,
and as a last resort the smugglers
would not hesitate to consign their cargo
to the sea after weighting it sufficiently
to insure its instant disappearance.
By land, too, the illicit traffic is
carried on with an activity that has made
the custom-house officials tuspect every
stranger of smuggling till an exhaustive
search shall have proved either his innocence
or his scrutiny-proof cunniDg.

corpuleot-looking travelers were caught

under their waistcoats; logs of dye-wood
dragged by sluggish steers, with a sleepylooking
driver, turned out to be hollow
and full of proof spirits; innocent geese

their death before the end of the day.

The Turkish Government levie? land
taxes -with rigor, but manufacturing
interests are too insignificant to repay
the trouble of assessment, and such home
produce as shawls and brandy are
cheap enough to be sold in modern
Greece with considerable profit.
Metakesphts, or thief-takers, range the
border in strong patrols and fire upon
every suspect who fails to stop at
the word of command, but the
smugglers are equal to such emergencies.
With their contraband hidden just out of
sight and their horses ready saddled they
will bivouac for days 011 the safe side of
the frontier, watching the movements of
the guaids, and ready to improve a favorable
opportunity at a minute's notice. If
their chance comes they will snatch up a
load of concealed sundries, strap them up
in capacious saddle bags and run the
blockade at a tearing gallop, but withal
I making their hours run zigzag to confuse
the aim of a possible sharpshooter.
A ten minutes' start makes pursuit

blue. The thing to uvoid for these outdoor
fetes is all approach to the conventional
street gown with its tailor made look.
Strive as far as possible lo attain the quaint
and picturesque.
The illustration depicts an empire pown
in embroidered batiste, made up over a skyblue
jdace taffeta, the batiste being of a
lighter shade. The guipure collarette and
cuffs are in salt gray. Vol will note how
the pleating is done at the front; at the back
there is a Wattcau in gatifrcd pleating,
j The sleeves are ai?o in fjaufred pleating.
The ribbon used is in a light green velvet.
Some of the combinations of mauve and
I cream are delightful. For instance, an
exquisite cream muslin printed with mauve
sprigs of flowers is set oil'by a deep sash ol
mauve and cream ribbon. The front of
the corsage has ;i !:clw of lace brought down
under the sash and the bottom of the skirt
is gnrr.it 11 red with two tiny (Jounces, lace
embroidered.
The illustration depicts a lovely summer
costume in barege and taffeta glace, very
I appropriate for a garden party or lawn
I party of any kind. The tafleta not only
I serves to make the plastron, the collar, the
revtrs, the sleeves, and the bias bands on
the skirt, but it idso serves ;;s foundation
for the barege. J'his gown must be made
princess and be glove- tilting. The plastron
is pleated over lining and the dress material
i cut from under it. The puffed sleeves are
j caught up with a bow of ribbon.
Harden and lawn parties promise to be
extremely popular (his season, and I have
several more charming dresses to show you,
each well qualified to figure at such fetes
The exquisite textures and delicate tones
now so modish are brought out in their full
value by the green floors and darker green
backgrounds furnished by the foliage,
while the open air lends a color to the cheek
and a vivacity to the manner which draw
nig room or ball room is powerless to effect.
The combination of iace and ribbons continues
to be much in vogue. In one instance
I saw a lace bodice wotmd around with ribbon
from bust line to the waist, and then
there was a loose, full bib falling from the
throat to meet the ribbon corselet. The
effect on a fine figure is altogether charm
ing.
In the matter of sleeves, I may say that
the upward tendency has completely disappeared.
Now they either droop down
toward the elbow or s'and out in a straight
line from the shoulders.
For everyday wear as general knockabouts,
nothing is so pretty and inexpensive
withal as a serge skirt and a foulard blouse
in some light color. Some blouses are
made in accordion pleated crepe de chine and
so cut as to overhang the waist line, with a
}ace yoke at the throat and the same pleated
effect in the full upper sleeves. The omnipresent

HOUSEHOLD MATTERS.
SMOKING PISH.
Fish that are dried for use are first
salted lightly, and then smoked by hanging
them in a smokehouse and burning
bark or wood under them. But little
smoking is given unless the fish are intended
for long keeping. The smoking
preserves the fish by means of the pyrolirrnerma
arid nroduced bv the smothered
combustion of the wood and deposited in
the flesh of the fish as the smoke cools.

DAINTILY ATTRACTIVE CURTAINS.
The woman whose artistic ability ha9
to compensate for the slimne3s of her
purse is never more successful than whea
she is arranging the draperies for her
summer room. Window-curtains of unusual
daintiness and pretty effect were
made by such a woman the other
day.
Fine cream^color cheese cloth was
bought for eight cents a yard, whicn
was to be used for bath curtains. The
df>en hpm across the bottom was outlined
with three rows of gilt thread. Ox-eyed
daisies, bright yellow ones, with their
dark brown centres, were painted with
water-color paints here and there over
the curtain, which hung in graceful
folds from a brass rod. The side was
caught back with a cord formed of
tvisted gilt thread. The curtain was
light and airy and of just the shade to
temper the glare of the sun.
Home-made curtains of white French
lawn are pretty. Diiuty one3 have a
design of forget-me-nots painted across
the bottom. At each side they are held
back with a blue and white ribbon cord
formed of Mo. 1 ribbon twisted to form J
a rope effect and finished with a ribDon I
rosette.
Curtains with narrow ribbons run
through a deep hem at the bottom are
also new and pretty.?New York World.
JELLIES AND MARMALADES.
Jelly making requires skill and care;
only the best quality of fruit should be
used for making it, writes M. J. Ashton
in the New York Observer. Many
housewives cook jelly too long, which
makes it stvong and dark colored. Some
fail in making jelly who have guod sucr>naa
in /??nninrr and nreservlnff. A few
P I O- ?
rules will be of use to them: Use the
best quality of white sugar; cook in a
granite or porcelain lined kettle; boil
the juice live minutes or more before
adding the sugar; skim as often as any
acum arises; dip the tumblers into hot
water just before filling; have a jelly
bag made of strong crash or white flannel;
drain instead of squeezing the
pulp; strain the jelly after it is cooked
through cheese clotli just before putting
it into the tumblers.
Apple Jelly?Tart, juicy apples should
be used. Maiden's Blush and the fall
pippin are excellent for jelly. The
Duchess and Rhode Island greening are
good for late-made jelly. Wash and
wipe the apples, and cut in quarters
without peeling, cook in porcelain
kettle with water to cover until soft;
keep covered closely. Pour in a jelly
bag aDd haag up to drain. Never
squeeze or you will have marinaiade instead
of jelly. Measure the juice aud
put over the fire, allow allow threefourths
of a pound of sugar for every
pint of juice, heat the sugar in the oven;
when the juice has boiled rapidly tea
minutes add the sugar and boil five or
ten minutes more, then try with the
skimmer, dipping it in and out quickly;
if it runs off in only one place it is not
cooked enough for jelly; if it drips in
two or three places it is ready to take
off.
Green Apple J ell y ? Green apple3
picked up in September before they are
ripe, make a nice jelly. Wipe and cut

water to cook well, pour into a jelly

sugar as yuu littVC juu;c. Vyuua tuo juiug
ten minutes rapidly before adding the
sugar.then cook live minutes longer and
test with the skimmer the same as the
other iellv.
Plum Marmalade?Take ripe plums,
pour boiling water over them, take off
the skins and take out the pits, then
weigh, allowing one pound of sugar for
every pound of fruit. Let them stand
ten minutes before cooking; boil from
fifteen to twenty minutes and dip out in
tumblers; when cold, seal.
Apple Marmalade?Peel, quarter and
