some strangers were at the station in the hopes
f getting a glimps of royalty. In this, how
ever, they were deceived. Disregarding the
evidences of welcome, In numerous flags and
a general holiday appearance, the princess

commodate the entiro party at one table.

A Tall Fish Mtory.
A fish story oomos from the vicinity of Sea
Girt, N. J. It is stated that one day the family
of a much-rospected clergyman living in a cot
tage near that fashionable resort were without
meat and fish for dinner, and were driron to
the probability of having to dino on cabbngo
and other vegetables. About 10 o'clock in tho
morning a large fish-hawk was soon to swoop
down to tho soa and riao with a fish in its
beak. It is well known that this is tho manner
in which the fish-hawk does his marketing,
and, having thus secured his prey, takes it
homo to his wife and children in their nest on
top of a high tree. It so happenod that this
fish-hawk nad caught too lare a fisli. It was
a ten-pound bluettsh, aud it struggled vio
lently for liberty when captured by the
hawk. Presently, just as tho hawk was Hying
over the poor clergyman's back yard, the fish
got the hotter of him and hit the hawk such a
poworful blow with his tail that the hawk was
glad to lot him drop. Tho fish suddenly de
scended among tho clergyman's wifo and
daughters, who were sitting in tho fdindo of a
troe outsido the kitchon and preparing their
frugal meal They accopted the fish as a gift
from heavon, whence, indeed, it soomod to
have come, so unexpected and startling was its
desoent from above. The clergyman's family
called in two or three of their 'neighbors and
enjoyod with them a substantial fish dinner.
The poor fish-hawk had to make other pro
vision for hiB family in the treo-top. This is
only a fish story, yet it is said to bo vouched
for by several excellent and trustworthy
How Hlnncrtt Hhould Live.
Women singers, especially in the country,
aro adicted to three habits which are equally
prejudicial to them as singers. These three
habits may be described as the habit of taking
irregular and insufficient food, tho habit of
tight lacing, and the habit af eating candy. I
know half a dozen bright American girls, who
have roally excollent prospects as singers,
whose voices are already bcginuiug to betray
the fact that their owners live on "lunches"
and "candy" rather thau throo squaro meals a
day. It is very cortaiuthat there novcr will
be any tone to the voice that comes from an
insufficiently and irregularly nourished liodv.
On the enbloct of tight lacing a book might be
written with case. Many a ffirl who now finds
great difficulty in taking a high note might do
so with comfort if she would only givo her
self coora to breathe. Iu brief, it may bo
truly said that no teaching however able, no
industry or talent however great, in tho pupil
can amount to anything unless the wouhl-bo
singer is content to live a good, honest, hoalth
fullifo, trusting to common-senso rules of
living, and plenty of fresh air rather than to
quacks and nostrums. If vocal teachers, be
fore commencing their lessons, would take
the trouble to find out how the pupil lives, aud
would refuse to give any instruction until tho
pupU was ready and willing to conform to tho
simplest rules of hygiene, a great many
troubles, ospocially throat troubles, wonld bo
avoided, and tho act of singing, instead of
being a painful, miserablo, ear torturing ef
fort, wonld be easy and as pleasurable to the
singer as to the listener. The rules of life,
winch the student should observe, are just as
iniHrtant for the singor, private or public; if
anything they are more bo, for the strain is
greater. One thing is certain, the reliability
of a singer depends absolutely on the method
and manner of life.

And now a new stylo of penmanship is
threatened. It is to bo plain up and down,
legible, ; and unornanicntal. Styles in chi
rography aro tho peculiar property of women.
Among men individuality lias something to do
with handwriting. Each one creates his own
stylo after mastering the first principles of tho
art The stroko of his pen reveals his idontity
as unmistakably as his voice, his walk, his fig
ure or his face. But women iu penmanship
are like they are in dress. They aro so dis
tressingly afraid of being peculiar or
original that they all pattern after ono model.
An imitation of tho English style of penman
ship has beon taught our school girls until
every woman writes ft hand like a high
churchman's a stylo that allows a dozen
words to sprawl tlio'mselves all over a sheet of
Eaper big enough for an editorialist to write
is longest and strongest articlo upon. How
ever much stylo and uplondor there mny be
about it this kind of a list is diflicult to de
cipher, and wasteful in tho matter of time and
stationery, and withal unhandsome. All read
ers of manuscript will rejoice that it is threat
ened with expulsion and an older and better
stylo promised in its placo.

New York, Sept 5. New York "society," as
such, seems to be entirely domiciled at New
p. irt. The Sim says : The dinner parties that
havo boon . given in Newport in honor
of tho chief magistrate of the nation
have boon . to the last degree stately
aud magnificent And whereas In the early
t of tho season the ladies seemed to have
abandoned the long trains and abbreviated
wuiste of tho winter season, and appeared in
short costumes, with high or short necks,
every ono now goes in trailing skirts, with no
waists or sleeves to speak of; and the charms
which are thus not unfrequently mads evi
dent tilled iu with pearls and diamonds of
rare beauty and almost priceless value.
At the dinner given at Fair Lawn by Mr.
aud Mrs. Ellis the flashing of jewels in the
ladies' hair and on their dresses added not a
little to the effect oa the beautifully-decorated
table, whioh was laid in the largo ball-room,
an apartment with deep alcoves and rich
hangings, well kndwn to the Newport world
when the house was oeeuDied bv Mr. Mortro.
On this occasion Mrs. Aster was gorgeously
attired iu a dress of rose dschjne and silver
brocade, with ornaments of pearls and dia
monds. Mrs. B-ernocaan wore peari-coioreu
satin, low-necked and short sleeves, with a
profusion of diamonds .on neck, and arms.
Miss Bockwith's perfectly-fitting gown of
paie pint satin ana nine was extremely preuy
and becoming, as was also Mrs. W. W. Aster's
simple costume of white and siWer.
. At Mrs. Paran Stevens' dinner and reception
on Tuesday evening, the hostess was very be
comingly dressed in black, with trimmings of
blue ostrich feathers, aud ornaments of dia
monds. But. among the profusion of
jewels worn by married ladies in Newport
this year, none are so noticeable as those of
Mrs. Frederick W.. Stevens, whose pearls
might be coveted by an easternprinoees. They
have boen collected with great care and at
long intervals, of course quite regardless of
cost, and each pearl is said to be absolutely
perfect as to shape and color.
The reception following the dinner at Mrs.
Parah Stevens' was an exceptional! pleasant
ono. as many interesting people were gath
ered together, and there was an absolute free
dom from stiffness and restraint Among the
notabilities who were present was Count Fits

Stuarts, and a lineal descendant by the left
hand of James II of? England, the celebrated
duchess of Borwick being in some way in

Combustion Without JFIaaae.
Amorican Architect
A now theory of combustion was practically
illustrated by Mr. Thomas Fletcher, of War
rington, England, at a soiree of the Society of
Chemical Industry, at Owons college, the re
sult being so totally ' unexpected that many
would, and in fact did, go away with the iin
prossion that some deception was being prac
tised. Mr. Jacob Reese, the inventor of tho
lleeso fusing disc, haa stated his belief that if
it wero possible to produce combustion with
out fiauie tho temperature and duty obtained
from any fuel would bo enormously increased.
Mr. Fletcher not only has proved the possibil
ity of ttauicloss combustion in more than one
form, but also has demonstrated practically
the ciiornvmuly high temperatures which can
Uo obtained By tins means.
Tukinir a ball of iron wire about throo
pounds in weight, Mr. Fiotchor placed it on a
slab of fire-clay, and directing a blow-pipe
ilaiiio on it for few seconds, ho suddonly blew
tho thime out The temperature increased so
rapidly that in a few seconds the wrought-irou
fused and ran into drops, and the temperature
was steadily maintained. Tho room was
darkened, but the closost examination did nut
show a trace of name, although the fact that
the gas was burning was proved by repeaiouiy
n lii'litiiiL' and extinguishing it The same ex
periment was repeated in another form by
directing tno nauiuiesa neat uuu a buibii
fire-clay chamber, iu which a refractory
clay crucible, mado especially for nickel
melting, was partially fused and worked
into a ball like soft putty, the sides of
tho fii o-el.'iy chamber being at tho same timo
fused. Tho heat was so great that the blow-
ipo laboratory, which was given up to Mr.
letcher for tho evening, was much too hot to
ho agreeable, ill spite of tho windows and ven
tilators. How far this discovery can be
utilized remaius to bo soon, but it would ap
pear that the prosunco of flamo, usually con
sidered to be a sign of combustion, is really au
indication of imperfect results, aud tho Lost
duty is to be obtained only when flame is
totally absent It is certain that such tem
