H?thota Employed In Bringing Snnlc (? Fortanea to the Surface? Where Some Loat Honrdi Lie. It is not generally knon that at her death Queen \ ictoria gave Princess Beatrice the crown rights to the gold of the Spanish armada. This gold lies in comparatively shallow depths in the English channel. Its location is known to the admiralty, and the value of the gold is said to be enormous. The right is invested in the royal family, and many offers have been made looking towards its recovery. But the bottom of the Atlantic is a vast treasure bed. If a skillful mariner had a submarine boat, and if the boat had a oyclopean eye in the hull of it, its owner might easily rival a Kothschild. A* large amount of this treasure is located aB accurately as the principal banks in our great metropolis. Many a diver can take you to a chart, lay his finger on a number of spots and say: "Go to longitude so and so, in a latitude defin- i able within 50 feet. Dive deep enough ' and bring up a fortune," says London Golden Penny. Every wrecking company has its own private list of these ocean hoards. ' Some are being worked, while many will doubtless become accessible in the i future. Last year the Boston wreck ing company recovered $40,000 in gold bars which had lain for 60 years on a bank near Turks island. Twelve months previously to this find a New York ! company fished up a couple of bags of gold from an old-time wreck off Staten ! island. In the United States there are ' companies prepared to undertake the hazardous business of recovering val uables from wrecks. They employ the best divers obtainable, and for days these men work away and endeavor to bring to the surface the lost treasures. When the Spanish steamer Biseaya sank off Barnegat on November 1, 1890, a well-known American wrecking com pany received the following telegram from Havana: "Spare no expense to recover the body of Don Pedro." Don Pedro, a wealthy Cuban merchant, was a passenger by the ill-fated vessel. The telegram came from the widow and certainly seemed to indicate her devo tion for her husband. The wrecking company fitted a tug, hired the best divers and began the search. Thev worked for many days, bringing up hip s officers and seamen-n-every body except the Cuban merchant. The search was at last abandoned. Then the company heard for the first time that Don ledro had a belt about his o??0,?.U,""""e'Sen"tOtheV"" In Hell Gate, at a spot marked with a star in the charts of wrecking offices, lies the British man-of-war Hussar! When she sank she carried $500,000 in cash to pay the British army just be fore the revolution. She sank in only ten fathom* of water. As late as 1894 a wrecking company had divers at work upon the wreck. They brought up a 1 few scattered gold coin's, brass buttons and some scrap iron. Another British ship, loaded with gold, captured from the Spaniards, lies at the bottom of 1 Chesapeake bay in only 48 feet of wa ter. She went down in 1730. Before leaving the port at Lewes her captain was heard to say: We have gold enough aboard to buy a kingdom." Just as She stood out from the land a cyclone struck her. She keeled over t^n Went.down- The body of the cap tain was brought to shore and buried at Lewes. Within recent years a con siderable amount of gold has been brought up from her by divers. At the base of Dunderberg, in the ' Hudson river lies a pirate vefsel, with 37 bars of gold, a quantity of plate a box of gold watches an/fl ? necklace on board. In September. 1857, the Central American went down out de Havana. She carried $200,000 of the precious metal. The wreck is set down accurately in maritime records 1 but unless some way is found by which I divers can work at a depth beyond 100 feet, this treasure will never be recov- \ ered. 1 hirty years ago 300,000 English ? pounds of gold were recovered from a 1 Spanish galleon by a diver named Phipps in the West Indies. The srold had been under water 200 years, "lie- ] cently the Bos-ton wrecking company secured a good deal of silver from the wreck of the frigate Severn, a Bdtish ' boat which went down near Turks $500,000 worth of silver on board. She les in a basin, exposed to the rouirh swell of the Atlantic. She is only 30 wre'k WOter- The location of the wreck is given as latitude 21, longitude 69 degrees 50 minutes. WATER TUBES PROVE INFERIOR Teat in the British Navy Henulta in Favor of the Cylindrical Boilers. The second trial of the British sec ond-cla^s cruisers Hyacinth and Min nerva, fitted with water tube and cyl inder toilers respectively, has re sulted in another defeat for the water tube system. The warships left Plymouth with an equal quantity of coal for Gibraltar, and the Minerva steamed twelve hours after the Eyo cinth's bunkers were emptied. The vessel^ recoaled at Gibraltar and start ed ?in the race homeward during the morning of February 15, with the re sult that the Minerva reached Ports mouth at 1 o'clock this morning, hav ing averaged 18 knots. The Hyacinth's boilers broke down in the Bay of Bis cay on Monday. __ . ^Mrr>ga^ry^r^ Young's I Htt the Betl. I DERBY HATS. . . $3 00 | SOFT HATS $3 00 f SILK HATS $5 00 1 OPERA HATS... $8 00 | J.

Samp of (lie Pretty Motions in Drm That Are Son Attracting Attention. The empire shape still holds its own against all would-be rivals, for it is so very well suited to the purpose. Lace figures very prominently as a trimming for the spring hats ? narrow scarfs of black Chantilly, deep cream and ivory-white luce draped around 1 the rim of broad brims, the ends hang ing down either at the back or side, says a fashion authority. One of the best styles is the over 1 dress of guipure, fashioned after the manner of a coat, parting in front to reveal an underdress of accordion plaited chiffon, belted in by a jeweled ; belt or an overcoat of velvet, a mate rial which is greatly in vogue for tea. gowns, over a lace iiiuU?; tfress. I Oii? .uf rtfUfw" vje hats with tKe' upturned brim becJVingly waved is entirely cvi>.-ed with cabochon gathrreT .He. M'tdd?d with small black spangles. Over the left ear is inserted a cluster of gardenias made of white velvet. Gilt steel spangles are sewn here and there on the petals. For the simpler tea gown nothing is warmer or lighter in weight than zenana cloth, which has reappeared this season under a new face. Its wool ly back remains the same, birt the sur face is1 more crinkly and ereponlike and has a velvet spot in contrasting color scattered nil over it. or a small em broidered sprig of flowers woven on the surface at intervals. Lace will be more worn than ever, Irish crochet and thick Italian lace be ing the favorite trimmings on cloth and velvet frocks. Velvet will continue to be worn for another six or eight weeks, and, after all. there is nothing more useful than velvet in a keen March wind and a searching light, when we want to look smart and are yet shivering with cold. The advantage of a velvet frock is that it can be worn without an extra outdoor wrap. The skirt of the coming season is the jtipe paysanne. a straight skirt falling in soft plaits and folds from the waist to the hem, slightly gauged beneath the waistband. The only plain width is in front, barely six inches across. For the moment there is very little trimming on these skirts, merely a couple of wide tucks, and what is called a jour, a little openwork stitch ing connecting the tucks with the material. As the season advances, however, there will be plenty of scope for imagination, and embroideries and insertions will have lost nothing by waiting. Many novel evening frocks are made of pale blue, mauve and biscuit cloTh. Such a gown requires exquisite cut and should be finished with a soft draping of lace and a cheering touch of con trasting coIof. These individual touches are seldom queried if the whole dress be a success. There is something very chic about a cloth evening frock. A most successful model was in a bright shade of sapphire blue, which seemed to be cut en princesse, the draping caught up to the side with some Greek embroidery. The low, square decolletage and elbow sleeves were finis'hed with lace. A Poor Army. The Moorish sultan's army is a wonderful uffair. It fights by mak ing a noise rather than by killing the enemy. The army consists of 25,000 men. Some are armed with discarded British Martini-Henrys; others with home-made imitations of the Mar tini-Henry, which jam and refuse to fire; while others have the old flint lock muzzle-loader, which is of doubt ful habits. ?

Damask dinner cloths and napkins should have a hem a trifle less than a quarter of an inch wide; this should be hand sewed and very neat ly done. An exx-ellent effect is given to white or cream woodwork if after the enamel paint is put on the wood is thoroughly rubbed with pow dered pumice stone. A butler's trick for polishing fine glass is to dust it over with a l>ag in which is a little powdered indigo or other bluj^ ? - -AfterwafUs ret) hard with a. chamois. ,.Ber~tn?f" polish new wood until it shows signs of actual deterioration of tone. Too frequent application of oil results sooner or later in a gom my surface unpleasing to the t.ye and the touch. Rub the surface every day with a soft dry cloth. For carved pieces a soft brush with long hairs will be found necessary. The successful cooking of dried fruits is only attained by long soak ing and slow cooking. Wash the fruit w,ell and soak in cold water overnight. Take out the fruit, add sugar and boil the water, skimminy carefully. I'ut the fruit back into the water and simmer until tender. Dried fruit cooked in this way beais no resemblance to the tough, messj dish which is usually served. A box or small cupboard containing a supply of cleaning fluids and ma terials will be found a source of comfort in the household. Ammoi.iu, gasoline and a small bottle of chloro form, than which there is nothing better for cleaning silk and delicate materials, will do for liquids. Frenoli chalk and pipeclay should be in eluded, and this will suffice for all practical purposes, although many people have their own favorite prep arations which they will always have on hand. It goes without saying that the cleaning cupboard should be placed out of reach of children, and away from all danger of fire. Every closet door used to have its cretonne shoe bag, but in these ad vanced days boot trees have taken its place, the shoes being kept in shape longer than when they were carelessly thrust into a pocket. The bag has other uses, however. Mit tens, rubbers, clean dust cloths, a ball of string, numerous small things which one would wish to have close at hand, are conveniently kept in door pockets. The trouble is that they are too apt to become recepta cles for all sorts of rubbish. The domestic science experts who pro pose to abolish the kitchen pantry, and whose motto is: "Everything in sight," would probably object to them on this score. Cranberry Fritters. Take one and a hn'.f cupfuls of milk, one-half cupful of flour, one egg, one tablespoonful of sugar, one teaspoon ful of baking powder; mix beaten egg and milk together, add sugar, then baking powder and flour; lastly, stir in one cupful cooked, sweetened cran berries; with a spoon drop in hot but ter on gridiron. Serve with butter and powdered sugar. ? Good Literature. PollowlnK a Prescription. Larry ? Ilow did Murphy break his arm? Denny ? Following the doctor's pre scription. "Phwat?"

The pension will be based upon the average of their salary for the last ten years of their service. The organization of the trackmen, flagmen and bridgemen began in Northampton, Mass., Monday, March 38. It is authoritatively reported to be the beginning of a movement to unionize these classes of employes all along the New Haven and the Boston and Maine as well. The organizing is being oarried on under the direction of the International Brotherhood for the Maintenance of, Way of the United States and Canada. Carroll D. Wright, commissioner of labor of the United;States, in an arti ole in the North American Review, under the caption of "Strikes in the United States, " after giving statistics of nnmber of strikes, nnmber of per sons affected, loss to employers and strikers, nnmber of establishments as well as of persons engaged therein, says : "Every effort that can be made to adjust differences and deal with grievances in such a way as to prevent an open outbreak should be encour aged. Such attempts where honestly and faithfully made, are leading every where, whether in the United States or in other countries devoted to manu facturing industries to satisfactory re^ suits. The organization of private boards of arbitration now being re sorted to in ihis country, following the long successful example in the industries of Great Britain, is meet ing with snccess. It is recognized now that labor conflicts grow out of increasing intelligence. The avoid ance or adjustment of such conflicts must be the result of such increased intelligence. Fools do not strike. It irf only they who have intelligence enough to recognize their condition that taake use of this last resort. WittHficr^toHitt^liElnce, they will look back upon the development, and have accommodated themselves new conditions and when employers shall have accommodated themselves to the new conditions and when em Dloyers shall have recognized the in creased intelligence of their employes these matters will be handled in such a way as to prevent in the future a repitition of incidents like those which are chronicled in the statistical history of the strikes of the last twenty Tears. " PASSING OF SPANKING. Children Are Sow DlHclpllned by Mental HntherThan Physical 1'un.lDhmeut. What has become of the old-fash ioned spanking ? the kind that mother used to give? It seems to have gone out of fashion and other modes of pun ishment have come in vogue, says the New York Herald. It is difficult to believe that fashion extends even to the punishment of a child, but so it would seem. "Spank ing" is no longer good form, and so it has gone out of favor and other modes of punishment have become popular. It is to be noticed that with each change parents and teachers are not only ap plying more humane treatment, but are resorting more and more to per suasion and reason instead of force. When Johnnie's father was a very small boy he was punished for not learning his le^sous by being com pelled to stand in a corner with a dunce cap on his head. 13ut Johnnie's teach er punishes him quite as effectually, though in a very different way. Instead of the dunce cap at school, there is a repoit card which records very ac ;urately, and the parents are sure to look over it very carefully, so the boy who is not studious is made to fee! just as much like a dunce as ever his father felt w hile he was wearing a dunce cap. When Johnnie's father grew older and got beyond the verbal control of his teacher, he occasionally found him self removed very unceremoniously from his bench, and he was beaten with a good stout stick. But Johnnie gets marks taken off his . deportment. When his1 exuberant spir its reach the beating stage, he Is promptly suspended from school and his punishment is complete. When Mary's mother was a little girl, she was spanked if she made mud pies just after she had been bathed and clad in a fresh white dress. But when Mary does the same thing now, she is sent off to the nursery to survey her soiled frock, and she is told to remain there until after mamma comes back from her drive (the drive she was go ing on. too). Taking it all together, the punish ment children receive now is intended S to be mental instead of physical.
