A 1)031 ESTIC COMEDY. THE VARIED RESULTS OF REARRANG ING THE FURNITURE. Mrs. Blank'. Mania For CtaacliK the Appearance of the Koami Broaghl Traable to the Male U- - tincent and Sorrow to Herself. "Do you change the position of the furniture wli-n you clean a rooiu;" Inquired housewife Xo. 1 of a friend in the course of a Lean to heart talk. "Do I? Why. yes. Indeed: I don't feel as If the room U cleaned unless I change the furniture a little bit. Dc you?" "Well. I usually change the orna ments around and bo forth, but In the tpring and fall I like to change every thing in a room completely alter the whole appearance of it- Then "I fancy the things are all new, and they seem to look prettier somehow. But, do you know, my husband doesn't like it at all.- "Neither does mine! Isn't that singu lar? Men are so peculiar!" "Yes, indeed they are So many housekeepers share the Views of these two that a story with a moral will not be out of place. It was the other n!ght only that Mr. Blank went unsuspiciously up stairs to bed at an unasually early hour, leaving bis wife reading In the sitting room. He had a headache and carried a gob let of water In bis right hand. Fear lessly advancing Into the dark bed room Mr. Dlank suddenly felt both legs violently cut from under him. He clutched wildly at the air and said several things of an exclamatory na ture, but there was nothing to save him. He went down. "Good gracious, nenry ejaculated Mrs. Blank, hurrying to the scene of disaster. "What Is the matter? Where are you? Why don't you light the gas?" Suiting the action to tbe word, she beheld her husband sprawl ing across tbe bed; tbe glass be bad carried had discharged Its contents cross the plllowshams and shivered on the floor. Mr. Blank d!d the talking for the next ten minutes. He said that of all the blankety blank folly of which the mind could conceive this of changing furniture around was tbe worst. He said It was a pretty thing for a man to walk into bis own room and have to fall over things in tbe dark. He said be wouldn't stand It; the furniture must be replaced where It formerly stood. "1 shan't do anything of the kind," replied Mrs. Blank. "It looks very much nicer where it Is. Why don't you feel where you are going when you get Into a dark room?" "S'pose you'd like me to crawl in on all fours snarled Mr. Blank. "I couldn't feel where the bed was unless I happened to touch the footboard. I thought I could walk clear over to the bureau. I tell you It's a confounded crank you have on this subject. Some day you'll precipitate a serious acci dent." "If any one precipitates. It'll be you. I should think." retorted Mrs. Blank icily. And the furniture remained where It was. It was the next evening that Master Blank undertook to carry a pile of echoolbooks from the dining room to the sitting room. He had a bottle of Ink In his hand, and he thought he knew exactly where the center table was. In the course of his peregrina tions In search of it, however, he came Into violent collision with the glass door of the bookcase, which he broke. There were also Inky traces discernible on "the carpet when Mrs. Blank came in. This time there was some balm for her feelings. She could spank Master Blank and did it with the best will In the world. Her own downfall was not long In coming, however, although for a few days only minor Inconveniences were met with, such as the abrasion of an kles against chair rockers and slight bruises received by means of sudden contact with unforeseen obstacles. Last evening Mrs. Blank undertook to trans fer the cage of her pet parrot from the window where it spends the day to the snug corner where it passes the night. She did not trouble to light the gas, and by some unaccountable mental lapse she had forgotten the precise point at which a tabouret, on which stood a jar diniere, was stationed. She charged Into the tabouret with considerable force, was overbalanced by the weight of the cage in her arms and took a header with a resounding crash. The parrot shrieked, and. unable to distin guish friend from foe. Inflicted a severe bite on her mistress finger. Mr. Blank came in hurriedly, picked up his wife and assisted in making an inventory of sundry contusions. Then they lifted the parrot cage, badly bent, and the jardiniere with a piece chipped out of ft and the tabouret somewhat scratch ed, and then Mr. Blank observed quiet ly: "I hare just one thing to ask yon. Mrs. Blank. Was I right? "Xo, you were not!" retorted Mrs. Blank savagely. "Serious accident? What's serious about this, I should like to know? For goodness sake, Henry, don't stand there trying to look like a martyr! If you must have the furni ture moved back, I'll move it! And she did. Philadelphia Record. Prraccapatloa.

"I didn't mean to speak slightingly ef him." answered the young man with tbe striped shirt front, "but It does treem peculiar to me that a man who knows just when the nest comet will rriTe and Just how far it is to the moon should be so utterly Ignorant j when It comes to a question of when j It's time for dinner or what train to take to get to the nearest town."

Empress Augusta Victoria of flerina ny, whom the cable dispatches receiir'y reported to have been tr.fcen uddeuly 111 at IloniUiton. necessitating her re turn to the palace at Berlin. cele!iaed the twentieth anniversary of he- wed ding with Emperor William ovi Feb. 'JT of this year. She was formerly the Prince Victoria of Sleswick n lstein Ronderborg - Augustenborg irsd tbe daughter of the late Duke Frederics f that principality. The German clj EMPRESS ACGCSTA VICTORIA. press Is now forty-three years old and has been always noted for robust health and strong constitution. She Is an excellent horsewoman, reared to that exercise from her girlhood, and finds more delight in cantering upon the back of a spirited horse than In any other out of door recreation. The em press is the mother of seven children, the eldest of whom, Frinoe Frederick William. Is heir to the imperial throne. Of the six others five are boys. The youngest child is the little Princess Vic toria Louise, born in 18U2. The mother of the imperial children is a high type of fine German womanhood in both beauty and character. A Charm In at Society Dame. Princess Dolgorouki has been seen but little in London society this year, this being entirely society's loss, for her highness, both as Miss Fleetwood Wilson "the most popular spinster In London," according to the dictum of a very high personage and as the wife of an accomplished and genial Russian potentate, has held a unique position In the great world. Many interesting gath erings have taken place In her London house. It was from thence that was married the lovely elder daughter of Colonel and Mrs. Cornwallis-West to Prince Henry of Pless. and by a curi ous coincidence Miss Fleetwood Wil son's own engagement to a continental prince was announced shortly after. The double wedding forn addition to the ordinary church marriage a cere mony took place in the chapel of the Russian embassy aroused an immense amount of talk and interest, and great pleasure was felt by the bride's friends when it became known th.it she by no means meant to abandon her native land. London Sketch. Season's Fashion In Fara. From transparent gowns tc furs is a far cry seemingly, but the season of the one Is the season of the other, and the wise woman does not wait until the snow flies to settle the question of her winter wraps. Fur garments of ev ery conceivable length will be worn next winter. A little chinchilla coat is made in the popular blouse sbaie. The blouse Is held In at the waist by a belt of suede leather. The full bishop sleeves are also terminated by a band of suede at tbe wrists. The usaf of the suede is an excellent idea, since it does away with the clumsy effect of the fur blouse as ordinarily made. A long paletot of sealskin which reaches quite to the bot tom of the skirt and is worth a king's ransom Is the other extreme in the length of fur garments. Tbe cloak is faced with beautiful sables, and with it Is carried an immense "grannie" muff. Between these two extremes is a three-quarter length coat of sable The revers are very large, and the sleeves are in bishop shape. The Popalar Plate. The Sheffield plate which was found on tbe sideboard of our grandmothers has been recalled to favor and prom ises to play an important part in tbe display of bridal gifts. It comes in trays, dishes, tureens and pots, and the young housekeeper will find it as durable as her great-grandmother did. The quaint old shapes have been re vived, to the joy of the lover of an tiques, who finds nothing of a later de sign than 1S00 beautiful. Kalserzinn retains its popularity, and the shopmen declare that it is almost impossible to keep a stock in tbe store. It is handsome, durable and inexpen sive, three things which appeal to the buyer of wedding gifts. The variety of silver spoons, forks and sets is endless, and the bride w-ill be provided for from oatmeal in the morning to coffee and cordials after dinner. They also are heavy with flowers, and the day of the colonial simplicity seems to have passed as far as silver is concerned. Wear Boy a Shoes. Many young women buying the heavy soled shoes now so much worn by them seek the youth's shoe department for the purchase. As a girl of eighteen re marked the other day: "I find that a boy's last is much more comfortable than that made for a girL I simply have my foot fitted to the shoe, without regard to size, and they wear longer and better than even the so called man nish shoe for women."

Ireland claims the honor of the first electric railway In the United King dom. It Is said that the cheapest railway fares in the world are to le found in Hungary. Denmark has a government railroad system of 1.1U7 miles and 51o miles of private railroads. The Servian. Roumanian and Bulga rian railroads are owned exclusively by the respective governments. Travelers on Prussian railways whose baggage, through no fault of their own, fails to arrive with them can now have it sent on request free to their houses. The difficulty of railway construction In some parts of Africa is illustrated by the fact that on the Freetown-Mat-tru line. In Sierra Leone, eleven steel bridges had to be built in a distance of only thirty kilometers. A representative of the Paris Temps has been examining railway stations in Germany, and he declares that those of Dresden, Cologne, Hanover. Frankfort, Bremen, etc.. are far superior to any of the French except the Parisian. raring a Creditor. Like many another famous man both before his time and since. Talleyrand exhibited, at least In early life, a great reluctance to settling with hi credit ors. When he was appointed bishop of Autun by Louis XVI.. he considered a fine new coach to be necessary to the proper maintenance of the dignity of that office. Accordingly a coach was ordered and delivered, but not paid for. Some time after, as the newly appoint ed bishop was about to enter his coach, he noticed a strange man standing near who bowed continually until the coach was driven' away. This occurred for several days until at length Talley rand, addressing the stranger, said: "Well, my good man. who are you?' "I am your coachmaker, my lord," replied the stranger. "Ah." said Talleyrand, "you are my coachmaker! And what do you want, my coachmaker?" "I want to be paid, my lord." "Ah. you are my coachmaker. and you want to be paid? You shall be paid, my coachmaker." "But when, my lord?" "Hum. said Talleyrand, settling himself comfortably among the cush ions of his new coach and eying his coachmaker severely, "you are very inquisitive!" S&Jad Eatlav Good Seaae. Even men are progressing gastronom ically. Scientific dietetics has at last revealed to us tbe fact that tbe woman who eats salad on a hot day in July. August or September is displaying sound gastronomic sense, says What to Eat. The long haired dreamer in the restaurant may have been nineteen dif ferent kinds of a fool upon every other proposition in life, but he knew what to eat on a hot day. The human ani mal needs grass or its equivalent In summer. With their oil the salads sup ply everything a man physically needs In hot weather. All the civilized races of the world are salad eaters, but Amer icans eat less than do any other people. It Is not a sign of mental decay or mor al degeneracy for a man to eat salad; it is gastronomic sense. llarpera Ferry. Harpers Ferry was named after Robert Harper, an architect and mill builder. torn in 1703 in the town of Oxford. England. He came to Amer ica in 1735 with his brother Joseph and located In Philadelphia, where for a time he prospered but, failing later, concluded to join the Friends of Lou doun county, Va. En route to his new home he came upon the gap In the Blue Ridge mountains, where he made Lis home. Ih'am tsj uarrotte. Havana, Oct. 25. Andres Rodriguez and Anicte O'Farrill. negro murderers, were executed yesterday by the gar rotte. A fellow prisoner acted as ex ecutioner, receiving an ounce of gold for each execution, together with a reduction of six years in the term for which he was imprisoned. Death was apparently instantaneous. A "Loop" Witaess, The Schley inquiry has given striking evidence of how the doctors sometime disagree. Officers with apparently equal opportunities for observation during the Santiago blockade and tht battle that resulted in the destruction of Cervera's fleet have made d:is-ctly conflicting statements, and logs have beta found to disagree with nearly ev erylxidy. including sometimes the man who wrote the log. One of the interest ; lus witnesses has been Lieutenant i UETTTESAXT COMMAXDEB A. C HODGSON Comman-ler A. C. Hodgson, who waf navigating officer of the Brooklyn, Hodgson's prominence In the inquiry has been emphasized because of a con troversy in which he and a New York newspaper editor have engaged ovei the case, resulting in an exchange ol some unusually strong language. Sarh a Barcala. "Yes, I paid twenty dollars for this hat." "Goodness, child, bow extravagant! I saw the same thing for $19.0$'." New York JcurnaL Dloeoiery ol lonl in walen. During the reign of Henry VIII. many attempts were made to discover coal in north Wales, and a Shrewsbury man, named Bichard Gardner, was the only person who succeeded. The old ' records read: "lie attemptyd and put into proofe to fyude out coles about the ; town (Shrewsbury in soondry placys, ana In one place esxeciall callyd Ema tine Haye. hard by the sayd towne, he found by his great dyligcnce and troball great store of see cole, the which is lyke to come much coinmoditie bothe to the rlche and poore. that he Is not only worthy of commendacon and mayntenance, but also to be had in re membrance for ever." Cardiff West ern Mail. Coffee Drinking Denounced. As early as 1GG3 coffiee was satirized In England, and on every hand the bit terest invectives were applied to it by the press and pulpit. In one Instance a preacher hurled anathemas at tbe beads of those who used as a beverage "a sirup of soot and essence of old shoes T Probably he had good grounds for this statement, havicg sampled some boiled coffee. Another divine de nominated it "a poison which God made black that it might bear tbe dev il's color T The women also took np the cudgels against it. Folding; Linen In Holland. Folding linen is an accomplishment In which each one of the women In Holland is expected to be proficient before she becomes mistress of a home. In Holland especially the folding of linen requires considerable skill and training. Much of their fabric Is of the finest texture and quality, and they fashion the various pieces in ironing into birds, animals, flowers and all manner of artistic shapes. Their linen closets are often shown to visitors with the same prid that china closets bown elsewhere. Hla Embarrassment. Bracken They say you are financial ly embarrassed.
