They had not sufficient cash to invest iu mottoes dnd pictures. The young wife is handy with the brush ; but has considerable yet to learn in books.

Just What They Were.?A bicycling party was pursuing its leisurely way along a delightful country road the other day, when they came to a particularly well-kept kitchen garden. A patch of the most interesting growing things ran beside the fence for a distance of 40 feet. There were innumerable stalks bearing aloft globes of 20 different exquisite shades of grayish green and grayish purple, which were so striking that the party dismounted with one accord. "How decorative 1" said one of the men. "What lovely color!" said one of girls. "They would do to paint!" said the artist. "Won't you please tell us what those beautiful things are ?" asked the girl. The farmer glanced around in amaze tkon oimnlll aniri "Which ?" uieui/ aLIU tutu j "Why, those lovely things growing along the fence. I never saw anything like them."

Some of the Improvements That Are Comtemplated?It Has Come to Stay. New York Tribune. The self-propelling carriage is going through much the same experience that the trolley car and the bicycle went through. Each of the latter was develoyed by degrees, and up to a certain point was a good deal of experiment. At length all difficulties were I overcome one after another, simplicity j of design was steadily sought and ob[tained, a growing popularity was achieved, ana finally the manufacture became so extensive as greatly to reduce the price of production. The automobile is Dot so cheap today as it will be at some future time. Its mechaDism is not yet all that could be desired. And there are questions yet to be solved as to the best methods of accomplishing certain ends. But the automobile das come to stay. There can no longer be any doubt that it has a great field of usefulness before it. And it is probably only a question of time when it will replace most of the horse drawn vehicles on city streets and country roads. The principal differences of opinion in regard to automobiles at present relate to the means employed for propulsion. The champions of electricity, petroleum vapor and steam, each poiut out the advantages of their favorite agency. Inasmuch as steam had been used in England and elsewhere for hauling heavy merchandise over common highways years before the electric motor and gasoline engine were applied to traction, it was natural that attempts should be made to utilize it on light carriages. But owing to the noise produced, and the danger of frightening horses, it was felt for a long time that the problem was too great to be solved. Nevertheless, a practically noiseless steam engine is now made for horseless vehicles, and the successful adaption of oil as fuel to such engines has still further recommended this means of propulsion. But while electricity and the gasoline engine are more recent candidates for favor, they have undoubtedly obtained a larger share of patronage of late than steam. This fact does not prove much as to the future. Steam may yet get the ascendancy. Corapressed air, or liquid air, or carbonic acid, or some other agent, may eventually displace all rivals. Just now, however, more automobiles are driven by electric storage batteries and naptba engines than by any other means. To any one who has given much attention to mechanics the electric motor is an ideal device. There is almost nothing about it to get out of order, because there is only one moving part ?the armature. The gas engine, like the steam engine, has a number of _? ?L:-L ??>. Wolr (tnivn thllH pieces w uiuu uiaj ?>&? >. paralyzing the whole machine. The motor proper in an electric system is so simple and strong that it can hardly fail one who trusts it. It is to be observed, however, that the electric automobile, instead of taking its cur- ! rent from an overhead wire, must car- 1 ry a store of energy along with the vehicle, and the cells that serve | this purpose are not so satisfactory as the mechanism which utilizes the energy. A storage battery is not so ; heavy an affair as it was once ; but it is still exceedingly cumbrous, and hence it is necessary to carry around several hundred pounds of extra weight whenever electricity is to be employed in running an automobile. Moreover, an accumulator is more I liable to mishap than the electric mo- 1 tor. Its permanence is not assured to ' the same extent. At the present time it is practically impossible to put a charge into it that will suffice for a trip of over 60 or 80 miles, whereas one charge will carry a vehicle propelled with gasoleue 150 or 200 miles. And just now it is easier in a country village to obtain a fresh supply of gasolene than of electricity. This fact, if it does not demonstrate the superiority of the latter means of locomotion, at 1 1 * tKo oluofrin vphi. ' ItJilSU lUUItatcs luav vuu V>?v...? . _ ? cle's sphere of influence lies comparatively near to, if not altogether inside a city. But au improvement in, the storage battery which would overcome its drawbacks is being sought for, and it may be found almost any day. The unpleasant odor of vaporized gasoline emitted by the motor whicb employs that liquid, has often been the subject of complaint. Unless the vehicle using it is running with the wind the occupants are not likely to notice the smell. Some one else usually suffers the infliction. However, it is alleged that means have been found to suppress the evil, and if experience justifies this claim, the situation will be simplified. THE YAQUIS OF MEXICO. Habits of the Shy People Who Are Now lu Rebellion Again. The Yaquis, with whom Mexico is now fighting, are a people who have long resisted civilization and persistently sought to exclude from their mountain fastnesses the whites, and especially the officials of the Mexican government. Especially grievous to the Yaquis is the Mexican law requiring all men to wear trousers. When tha Vnnnis visit a civilized village to sell their rude pottery, their woveu mats and the few other things they manufacture, they do not put on their trousers until they are about to enter the corporate limits, and on their journey home they take off their hated garments as soon as they are clear of the village and put them in little bundles on top of their heads. At ordinary times the Yaquis are reserved and exclusive rather than hostile. They sometimes desert their villages at the approach of strangers, leaving behind them nothing that can give aid or comfort to the invaders. When the attempt is made to penetrate ? their mountain retreats, then the Yaqui8 take measures of resistance ; but even in this case they often do no more than block the paths by which the strangers must advance. A New Yorker who attempted to penetrate into a part of the Yaqui country some years ago met with these tactics. As he and his companion approached a Yaqui village at the foot ^ * U ?t? aaii M ana f ho 01 IQ6 mounIttiuSj mcj tuuiu ouc vuo natives scurrying off through the brush. When the travelers reached the village they found it empty. Even the food and some of the utensils had been carried off. The little thatched huts with earthen floor, standing in the midst of small bean patches, contained nothing to excite the cupidity of the least civilized visitor. No violence was offered to the explorers ; but as they began to ascend the mountains they found evidence of the peculiar resistance of the Yaquis. Great rocks and trees were thrown across the narrow trail. From time to time they could see the Yaquis peeping out at them from behind a distant rock, or in the act of throwing obstructions across the trail. The resistance became so determined and effectivfi At. th? <?nd of two davs that the explorers turned their backs upon the mountain heights and retreated to the valley, watched narrowly by the Yaquis. Much of the Yaqui country is altogether unknown to the civilized Mexicans and has never been surveyed by the government engineers. There are extravagant traditions of mineral wealth in these unexplored lands, and one belief current in Mexico is that the Yaqui country hides the ruins of an ancient and splendid capital. This city, according to tradition, occupies a mountain height not to be approached save by trails which the Yaquis jealously guard against intrusion. The only strangers with whom the Yaquis are on friendly terms are stray members of the murderous Apache Indian tribe. Apaches outlawed from United States territory have found an asylum in the Yaqui country. They are likely to prove effective aids to the Yaquis in the present war. WHAT IS IN THE DOSSIER. A Paris Editor Describes the Mass of Documents In Evidence. Francis de Pressense, editor of Le Temps, sends the following to the New York Journal: "The dossier is a collection of documents supposed to bear upon the Dreyfus case. It consists of two parts? military and diplomatic. "It is composed of about 900 different papers. Of these 700 are wholly unimportant. There are many letters from women retailing gossip. These women are either personal friends of army officers or their mistresses. Their chatter is of no consequence. It is something like this: 'I met a woman, who met another woman, who heard another woman say she knew a woman who dreamed that Dreyfus had relations with the German embassy.' "None but men blinded by class prejudice could think of putting such silly letters in the dossier. In point of fact, some of the higher officers are not only prejudiced; but ignorant. The intellectual weakness of Boisdeffre and Mercier was the laughing stock of the army before attention was called off by the Dreyfus case. "Of the 200 serious papers some are reports of more or less consequence. There are some forgeries in the dossier. The reason for secrecy does not arise from anything the dossier contains reDrardinir Drevfus. It is because certain B"* o ? ! documents or letters mention a scandal in which Schwarzkoppen, the German military attache, and Panizzardi, the Italian military attache, are alleged to be concerned. The Countess De Munster's name is also connected with that of another well known woman of Paris. "Revelations of this nature, even if well founded, would not bring on a war with either Germany or Italy. "The present examinatioq is not definitive. It is for the purpose of separating the documents pertaining to Dreyfus from others. There will then be a public examination of the former; but names, the mention of which might give offence, will not be uttered. Such is Gallifet's order. TOADS WELCOME IN HIS GARDEN. Long Island Farmer Finds That They Are a Protection to the Crops. Many farmers on Long Island appreciate for the first time this summer that it pays to encourage the presence of toads in their vegetable gardens. Housewives in the suburbs, too, are beginning to welcome them iu their cellars, as two or three toads in a cellar can dispose of insects more effectively than all the patent insect destroyers in the market. A Long Island farmer, who once had a prejudice against toads, admitted, in talking about the matter last week, that he was under a great debt of gratitude to the toads. "Half-a-dozen of the little hoppers in a garden," he says, "do wonders in the way of exterminating insects. Once I believed that the toads did the crops harm, and I killed them. Now I know better. I was induced to study their habits by an acquaintance who is something of a naturalist, and who took me to task for killing the little creatures. I found that I was waging war agaiust my best friends. I encouraged them in my garden,' and since then they have saved me many hundreds of dollars. A few small insects are supposed, rightly or wrongly, to be beneficial to plants, and these the toads are accused of eating; but the vast number of injurious insects they destroy overbalances this a hundredfold. The toads begin to get fat in the fall, and when the winter comes on they hibernate, coming out again late in the spring when the worms ancl insects begiu to appear. Some of the toads I have recognized for several years by peculiar markings, and I be- i lieve they have some intelligence, and can be tamed, though I have never tried to tame one. There is one thing I I can say, however. They have the < freedom of my cellar, garden and fields as they carry on their good work , among the crops." I ? t < IN COUNTIES ADJOINING.

A permanent call was unanimously adopted for the pastorial services of Rev. D. M. Douglass, who has been serving the church for several months. Mr. Douglass's work is highly appreciated by the congregation and the entire community, and it is hoped that be will see his way clear to accept the call so heartily extended to him. The ice cream party at Dr. G. B. White's, on Thursday night, was well attended. Excellent music was furnished by the Chester Orchestra. The fund raised, nearly $20, goes to the benefit of Patterson Library. Lanuer Carter, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Carter, died of typhoid fever Tuesday, the 15th instant, aged about 22 years. Rev. H. C. Bucholz and family left Tuesday for Campobello, Spartanburg county, where he will rest for awhile from preaching. In consequence of his absence there will be no service at the Baptist church next Sunday. LANCASTER?Review, August 16: Miss Isabella Davis returned home yesterday from Yorkville.

Women who stand as arbiters in matters of good form, divide on it. A book on usages of New York society says : "A widow may, for social purposes only, continue to use the name she bore as a wife, custom permitting this usage sim- j ply because it is painful to erase a name s that was given to a woman by one ^ who is gone but not forgotten. Eti- ' quette overlooks such liberty unless , the widow has a married son who bears the same name as his father did, in which case he is no longer a junior, and the card that his mother prefers * to keep, by right belongs to his wife, ? In such an instance, the older woman j adds 'Sr.' to her engraved name. If ? there are two widows having the same 1 card, or claiming it, the younger one 1 relieves the elder of an explanatory f abbreviation by courteously adding ] 'Jr.' to her own." Most writers on social usage confirm 1 this opinion, yet there seems to be reason on the side of those who retain the husband's name. Custom has, af- 1 ter all, a strong voice in the decision ] of such matters, and custom has de- J creed that the widows of noted men ] may retain the full married name. : But have not the widows of men not ( noted the same privilege ? J Many a shopkeeper will confess s to numerous embarrassing situations where Josephine Brown, or some other woman, sends for a bill of goods to be ^barged to account, and the books disclose accounts with Mrs. Joseph, Mrs. Henry, Mrs. Walter, and Mrs. John Brown ; but none at all with Mrs. Josephine Brown. It thus seems not only courtesy and good form, but practical, good sense for a woman to give her husband's name in all such business letters, and in all affairs where she is interested, and of which the world at large must know. On the other hand one can easily recall a dozen or more married women in even a small community who have in independent life in literature or irt, who have constantly signed their personal given name, Should such women give the husband's name in writing business letters ? The woman whose name is as well known in business circles as her husband's, should [ nertainly be exempt; but even then the jxemption carries with it a certain jgotism which it may not be well to issume. With custom and common sense for precedent and guidance, the widow >f today will drop her husband's given name or retain it, as best suits her own deas; but the wife or widow will be nareful to use it where there is a question of identity involved, or one of nusiuess recognition. A Youthful Tobacco Chewer ? Dr. Miller, of the St. Louis City dispensary, and other attaches of that inntitulion, were astounded Friday to nome across a four-year-old girl patient shewing tobacco. Their astonishment was shared by the mother of the victim. The youthful chewer was little do;*. 'Pan.ljall whn lives near Clavtoo. LJ'?,V- - . , iud it was an accident that led to the discovery. Elsie had the misfortune to fall over a tub and strike the side of her face against a bucket, inflicting a long cut. The mother baudaged the wound as best she could, and then boarding a car with the child, brought her to the city for treatment. She noticed on the way that Elsie was chewing something, but supposed that it was gum or some similar preparation. At the dispensary the child was placed on the operating table while Dr. Miller put five stitches in the wound. Once or twice she turned her head to the aide of the table to spit on the floor. After turning it back the quid of tobacco got too far down in her throat iud gagged her. Dr. Miller turned her head over to relieve her throat and ihe spit out the quid of tobacco on the 3oor before the astonished physician iud mother. BLOOD POISON CURE FREE!
