j A Pale ?reen Foulard.
An exquisite foulard for evening or
state occasions is of palest green,
scrolled with black. It has a long top
skirt rucked with black and white
chiffon, and a white silk vest spotted
with violet; thero are softenings of
lace and little tabs and bows of violet
velvet to fasten the bodice across.
f . Straw Hats.
To wear With summer gowns of
light color there are ' most attractive
hats of yellow straw trimmed with
bright flowers. Some of'these are in
toque shape; others are broader, while
others again are a little on the poke
bonnet order, and are fastened under
tho chin with strings either of tulle or
ribbon. This matter of bonnet strings
fa a fierions one to*recommend rashly
to the world'at large. Tb some faces
there is nothing so becoming as the
sttings, while, on the other haud,
nothing eau be more unbecoming; it
is curious what a difference it makes.
The strings ou these large poke bou
nets are put quite far back, and, as a
rule, .are of soft tulle or okiflbu, tyiug
under the chin in a soft bow, but with
no long ends. Older women who al
ways wear the bonnet strings have the
narrow ones_ of black velvet or black
satin. -Harper's Bazar.
rrincen? Iron? a Shirt.
! A story is told of the Princess
Louise's visit to the Bermudas. These
islands belong to Great Britain. The
islanders determined to give her a re
ception and both rich aud poor made
ready to do her honor. One day she
was out sketchiug, for, like the Queon
and the rest of her daughters, she is
fond of sketchiug. She was thirsty
and called at a cottage door for water.
The good woman of the house was
busy and refused to go for the water.
She, of course, did not know who the
princess was; she was busy ironing;
she was ironing a shirt for her hus
bandvtp wear at the reception of the
Queen's daughter, she said. Oh, no!
she could hot leave that to get water
-"."If you will only get me the water,"
said the princess, 'Twill finish iron
ing the shirt while you are gone." So
the princess ironed the shirt while the
woman fetched the water.

Miss Octavia Bates of Detroit is one
of the interesting women who read
papers at the council ot womeu in
London. Her subject was "Womau
in Law," and much iuterest was felt
iu this paper, as women versed in law
are few and far between in all coun
tries except this, and Miss Bates' bril
liant attainments warranted her opin
ions being most valuable. She is a
graduate of Ann Arbor university
and also of its law school, aud has al
ready taken two degr ees, B. A. aud
LL. B. Her favorite form of law is
?studying it under its iuternational as
pect, which is nothing if not abstruse.
Miss Bate3 has a fin? mind and ex- ;
presses herself with great directness,
and lucidity. She is uow planning a
trip around the world. She has already
conquered four foreign languages.
Personally she is a handsome woman,
with a magnetic presence, possessing
the charm of naturalness aud sincerity,
and she is also the possessor of a
largj private fortune, so that her ad
vanced knowledge iii law has come to
her as a pleasure and pastime au 1
not as. a necessity.. As a club woman
Miss Bates is widely known. She hos
been "a member of the National Fed
eration of Clubs aud is now in the
National "Council as chairman of the
standing committee on domestic rela
tions uuder the law. She has a!so
been president of the Detroit Wo:vau's

Women or Kardinia.
The women of Sardinia are doscribad
by a visitor *o that island as being of
elegant figure and graceful carriage,
with large black eyes, dark hair and
brunette complexion. They dress in
much the same style as women in other
parts of civilized Europe, except that
there is not the same extreme haste to
adopt the latest fashion. The wives
and daughters of the farmers and
tradesmen, by the gorgeousness of
their costumes, amply compensate for
the simplicity of dress amoug the
upper classes; aud at their religious
fetes and other festivals, when they
appear in gala dress, they present a
wonderful spectacle. These costumes
are a kind of family heirloom, handed
down from mother to daughter and
treasured as highly as hereditary jew
els or aucestral portraits. The fashion
never changes, and instead of fee ing
ashamed of beiug seen iu the same
dress at two different entertainments,
they glory in its antiquity and in the
unmber of occasions on which it has
been worn. The costumes of the
women vary greatly in different parts
of Sai.dinia. lu some districts a
small black jacket, open in front, is
worn over an extremely short bodice
of some bright colored silk aud
brocade. There are apparently no
corsets. The petticoats of light brown
cloth, very full, and between it and
the bodice is a sort of neutral ground
of protruding garment, which by no
means adds to the general beauty of

Mars may well be termeil theplaaot
of romance, says Miss Mary Proctor
in St. Nicholas, since more rbinnik-e?
havo been told c?ilcer?iilg it than
about auy other planet in the solar
system. In ancient times it was
selectod as the plauet of war on ac
count of its ruddy light, its symbol
being tho spear and shield of the old
Assyrian warriors. But thc evil qual?
ties attributed to the ruddy hues of
Mars by people believing it planetary
influences have long ago been con
signed to the realms of romance, and
Mars is no longer held accountable
for the wars and disasters that take
place on planot Earth.
Seen through a flue telescope, Mars
presents the appearance of a miniature
earth floating overhead, the ruddy
markings indicating land, the green
ish markings outlining seas and water
courses, while white caps adorn the
regions corresponding to thc polar re
gions on earth. Tho rstrononier, in
the quiet aud ease of his observatory,
can make a study of these regions,
which may not as yet have ever been
seen by the inhabitants of Mars be4
cause of the daugers which prevent
access to them. We may well doubt
whether tho bravest Martian ever suc
ceeded in reaching either pole of the
planet. Yet our eyes have rested on
those polar regions, eveu on tho very
poles thomselves. In the same way
au observer on Mars might direct a
telescope toward those arctic regious
of our earth which tho most daring of
our explorers have iu vain attempted
Mare tums round on its axis j ti st
as the earth does, except that tho day
lasts longer than the day on earth.
With the telescope it is possiblo to
follow the hourly changes that take
place on Mars from sunrise to sun
Bet. Wo eau see the mists of morn
ing gradually cleariug away, and the
gathering clouds toward evening,
probably to pass from the skies at
night, leaving the stars to shine with
a greater splendor through a rarer at
mosphere. Perhaps one or both of
the little moons of Mars (for it has
two, named Deimos aud Phobos),
may be shining in the sky. Deimos
rises in the oust like other stars, but
tho inner moon, Phobos, hurries
arouud Mars three times a day. For
this reason it rises in the Avest
every uight and sets in tiro east aftor
about five aud a-half hours. Neither
of tbe moons pivos much ligut, since
Phobos supplies only one-sixtieth of
the amouut given by our moon, while
Diemos gives only one twelve hun
dredth. But the smallness of the
Martian moons must bo takeu into
consideration, siuce Phobos is only
seven miles in diameter and Deimos
five or ?ix.
Continuing our observation ?f the
planet Mars during its daytime we see
iu imagination the white-shore line
along which tho murmuring waves
ripplo, or dash iu broakers agaiust
rock and promontory. Clouds form
and rain falls on the surface
of Mars, though not on such
an extensive scale as here. Nev
ertheless, during the latter half
of October, 1891, an area much larger
thaa Europe remained c\enst r ob^
scored. On another occasion Sir
Norman Lockyer noticed a great mftss
,of clouds spreading over a sea many
thousand square miles in extent. As
the hours passed awa}' the clouds
slowly dispersed, either melting on
account of the sun's heat or dissolv
ing in rain. When Lockyer ceased
observing for tho evening - at
half-past ll-a large portion of the
sea, which had beeu concealed, gradu
ally came into view* On this same
night Mr. William Butter Dawesj
known as "the eagle-eyod astron
omer," was also studying the planet
of war, keeping it well under observa
tion until the "wee sum' hours," wheu
he made au excelleut drawing of the
planet. Comparing this with a draw
ing made an hour rv.rliorby Lockyer it
was seen that tho clouds which had
coucealed the sea during the earlier
part of tho evening had passed eu
tirely away. Referring these events
to the Martian time, thc cloudy
weather ou this occasion apparently
occurred in the forenoon, thc mid-day
hour bringing clear weather, which
would seem to have lasted till the
afternoon was far advanced. Judging
from the whitish light which is usu
ally seen all around the planet's disk,
the mornings aud eveuiugs ou Mars
In 1877 Schiaparelli observed some
peculiar linos on the surface of the
planet .vars, and ho called them
canals. For nine years he was the
only astronomer who could see them;
aud wheu, in 1881, he further an
nounced that the canals had doubled,
it wns supposed for a time that the
Milanese astronomer was :he victim
of an illusion. However, siuce then
the result of his observations of the
canals of Mars have been abundantly
confirmed both in Europe and Ameri
ca, especially at the Lick observatory
aud the Flagstaff observatory. Tho
observations made by Mr. Lowell at
the latter observatory and those
already made by Schiaparelli tend to
make us feel very much at homo ou
planet Mars. However, it is neces
sary to state that Mr. Lowell's theo
ries are not generally received among
astronomers as satisfactorily estab
lished at present, but they are well
worthy of consideration.
The canals are not visible during
the winter season on Mars, but as
springtime advances they make their
appearance as faiut, dark line-, grow
wider and wider until they are fifty
miles across, and then, by way of
variety, they double. In fact single
canals have besn known to double
themselves literally at a day's notice,
the twin canals running along side by
side liko railroad tracks"; only in this
instance the railroad tracks are sep
arated by a distance of over two or
three hundred miles. Some of the
cauals extend to a distance varying
from three hundred to upward of four
thousand miles, and appear to be as
accurately straight as Hues eau be up
on a sphere. The canals seem to meet
at a number of smajl spots or junc
tions, which have beeu termed "lakes"
by Schiaparelli, and "oasis" by Mr.
Lowell. These small spots are scat
tered over the ruddy portion of the
planet's surface, forming a curious
network with the canals, the spots rt
the junction of the cauals being as
important a feature as the cauals
Mr. Lowell assumes that the rogiou
intersected by tbe canals corresponds
to the desert rogiou on earth," and
that tlie canals wcro apparently con
structed for the purpose of fertilizing
this region and the oasis in the midst
j of ihe wilderness. Th'erefoie, v. hat
we see is not the canal itself but vege
tation along its banks. Yet this doc?
not account for a canal doubling"itself
within twenty-four hours; for, ro- j
manee as we may about Mars^ we cad
scarcely imagine vegetation develop- j
ing with such amazing rapidity; Aa ,
the cduals wideii the oases do not in- |
breas? in size, but darkeii, which
would seem to indicate that they be
bome covered with vegetation as th?
season ddvances. Mr. Lowell als? en- j
ters into interesting ?peculations as to
the canals being of artificial formation,
ignoring the rather serious difficulty
H'S to tho temperature of Mars. He
sees evidence of engineering skill in.
the construction of the canal system,
which he attributes to the superior
ability of the Martians. ^Tinder the

WORDS COINED IN BOSTON.
Some of Those Which n Citizen Claims
a? Strictly Her Own,
At 'a meeting of the Bostonian
society in the old state house, says the
Boston Transcript, C. W. Ernst de
livered an interesting talk on the sub
ject: "Words Coined in Boston." Mr.
Ernst said that Governor Andros in
troduced, among other unsalutary
things, the term, "Your Excellency,"
as applied to tho governor. Tl 6
speaker claimed the word "boss"' was
first used by a mrtn named Gardner,
who came in a ship from the North sea
in charge of some mcchnuics; The
word "help," meauiug a person h?ed
to assist, is Bostonian, and was con
sidered a very honorable appellation
Mr. Ernst meutioned the following
as having had their origin iu Boston;
"Real estate," "corder," "dockago,"
"measurer of wood," "advice and
consent," "mixed drinks,M "dooming
j board," "transients," referring to
hotel accommodation, used as early
as 1700 in a permission giveu br the
selectmen of Boston; "fire ward,"
"fix," "stormy," in the Boston sense
of rainy, cloudy, but not necessarily
implying wind; "limbs," applying to
both anns and legs, and described as
being peculiar; "depreciating cur
rency," "fluctuating currency," and
"promoter," claimed by the speaker
to have boon first introduced in a
treatise on finauce by Dr. Douglas;
"Boston brown bread," used first in
1756 in description of abake Vmixture
of rye or wheat with Indian meal;
"assortment," replacing an original
Sortiment; the use of the "store" for
"shop"; "goodies," "factory" for
"manufactory" in 1767; also iu the
revolutionary and pcst-revolutionary
period various phrases,' including
"coutiueuial congress." ?
Mr. Ernst described "block" and
"police" as terms originating in Bos
ton, sayings that the police werfe thus
named here long before the term was
applied to them in England. He held
that "bindery" was coined in Boston;
also that the telephone "hello" went
from here to all parts of the world.
"Teamster" was Boston-coined, so
was "bicycler." 'Temocrat" had its
origin in Philadelphia in 1793, and
was first used to describe a party
policy in Boston in 1801.

What does a soldier sing?
The answer depends very much on
whether he ls a regular or a volun
teer. The regulars take to the last
hew song from the minstrel or vari
ety stage and lt must be either very
funny or very pathetic. The volunteer
soldier has just come from home in
fluences, and thinks of his mother and'
her favorite songs. He ls also fond of
hymns, and they come to his lips un
bidden. In the charge at El Caney.

disturbance of the old (iranary burla'
ground adjoining tho Common, lu Bos

subway runs. It was necessary tc
remove the remains of 910 persons in

Scotch descent made a great fuss ovei
what he termed "the enormity of mo
lesting the bones of his ancestors.'
After much argument, delay and per
suasion, the venerable Scot was in

ideas he would consent to the remova
without causing further trouble. Or

BFg Sums Demanded From Bootblacks id
Since the bootblack's profession has
followed the general modern trend
toward "organisation" it seems to have
become a highly remunerative pur:
suit. At least, this'must be Inferred
from the high rates which the boot
blacking companies are required to
pay for the privilege of carrying on
their business In certain desirable
places. Some time ago people were
surprised to hear of the large sum
that had been paid by the head of one
hf these compnnies for the exclusive
bootbl?cklng rights on the boats of
One of the ferries. The idea that the
little italian hoys Worked for a com
pany; and were not in the business
"every one for himself," was quite
hew to most persons. A little later
they received still further proof of
the modern methods of the profession
when they saw the cash register car
ried by each boy in Which he was re*
quired to deposit all the prices of his
But the latest development and the
one that best illustrates how the busi
ness buist pay is the rent charged for
bootblack's chairs ih the new giant
Office buildings. There are several of
these structures ih which the exclusive
shoe-shihihg rights are rated as being
worth from $1,000 to $2,000 a year in
rental to the owners of the buildings,

Out of reckonlug the wages of its op

or not the owners of the building have

Champion Snake Snapper.
Thc soil of Bridgeport ls very pro

the river banks and under old, weedy
walls, in an amazing way. Children

Every month I grew worse and at last
became so bad that I found I was
gradually losing my mind.
'. Tho doctors treated me for female
troubles, but I got no better. Ono
doctor told me that I would be insane.
I was advised by a friend to give Lydia
E. Pinkham s Vegetable Compound a
trial, and before I had taken all of the
first bottle my neighbors noticed the
change in me.
"I have now taken five bottles and
cannot find words sufficient to praise it.
I advise every woman who is suffering
from any female weakness to give it a
fair trial. I thank you for your good
medicine."-MES. GEBTBUDE M. JOHN
