One of the most unique business en
terprises in this country was estab
lished not long ago by three Pittsburg
women. Something like a year ago
they rented a house in one of the
best residence sections of Oakland and
began to prepare and deliver what
they called a "ready to serve” din
ner. A patent "buffet” was con
structed which would retain heat for
hours. In that ingenious contrivance
these dinners were served. They were
guaranteed to remain fresh, appetiz
ing and hot for three hours.
Success was theirs. Housewives
soon took notice and in a short time
those who had heretofore had much
trouble in getting a cook ordered the
meals from these women. The “ready
to serve” dinners proved a quick and
easy way out of the dilemma and the
ever troublesome cook was done away
The “ready to serve” dinner business
is a new feature in nearly every city
the United States. San Franeisco
and fashionable Paris have soundly
established cooking establishments on
the same basis and it has become very
popular. The three women realized a
imirprisingly large sum, it is said.
with much satisfaction. The edifice
is to bo a fine one and everybody in
Perth Amboy wants to see it complet
ed as soon as possible. It is greatly
to be desired that the work shall now
progress without further disturbances.

The light is not needed for the
printing of photographs is a discov
ery which has been made by Dr. Wil
helm Oswald, professor of chemistry
in the University of Leipsic. He pro
duces the required changes in the
sensitized paper by the use of silver
on negatives treated with a solution
of peroxide of hydrogen. The pres
ence of the silver causes the elements
of the solution to react against each
other. In a very short time in those
places where there is silver in the
negative the solution will disappear;
in the other spots remain. This invis
ible picture is then transferred to gela
tine paper and finally developed by
iron sulphate in solution. Gallic acid
is then applied and the result is a gen
uine ink picture. Dr. Oswald declares
that in this method the sensitized pa
per will keep indefinitely and the sil
ver can be used over any number of
times. He says the process is far
cheaper and quicker than any now in
use, besides requiring no light. By
it. any design or drawing can be
quickly copied.

Our Shrewder Millionaire* Propone
to lliilld Them In Their
Own Country.
Now that the American millionaires
have had time to look about them and
have contracted the habit of visiting
Europe, where they are received by
yoyaity, it is not surprising that they
should be taken with a desire for an
cestral homes, says the Philadelphia
Record. In the first impulse several of
them have bought up the ancestral
homes of impoverished English aris
tocrats and attempted to enjoy the emo
tions which are commonly ascribed to
the man who inherits baronial halls, oil
portraits, tombs and vast game pre
serves. It has been noted, however,
that after a very brief experience most
of them have turned up again in the
neighborhood of Wall street, where
their most exciting and happiest days
have been spent. The fact is that life
in the foreign ancestral home is too like
a pioneer existence to please the Amer
ican millionaire for long. To equip the
place with electric lights or even with
gas; to install a hard coal furnace and
hot air pipes, and all such modern im
provements as hot and cold water, dumb
waiters, electric bells, swift-footed
young servants, telephones, soft car
pets and whatever makes living com
fortable—the things for which the mil
lionaire labored in his most active days
—would he ridiculous. No man can ex
perience or pretend to experience the
state of mind of a born aristocrat in his
ancestral home without submitting to
ancient conditions.

Curious Incident of Lovk Accepted
Falsity of 1*^.1 Iftree and NnindU
A Bit of Turf Record.
Hambletonian was a bull«Jike horse
that was trained by Hiram Woodruff,
but could never develop a speed equal
to a mile in three minutes—3:18, to be
exact, says John Gilmer Speed, in Cen
tury, being the best mile he ever did.
As to his pedigree. Mambrino, the grand
sire, was by Messenger; but he was
worthless, and also vicious. He could
neither run nor trot. He was bred by
Louis Morris, of Westchester county.
New York, and sold to Maj. William
Jones, of Cold Springs Harbor, Long Is
land. As he was worthless and a se
rious disappointment, Maj. Jones virtu
ally gave him away, and he was used as
a traveling stallion at a small fee. John
o Onal.-or formal* n an r To.
malca. Long Island, had two Conestoga,
or Pennsylvania Dutch draft mares. Out
of one of these mares by Mambrlno, was
born Abdallah. This horse was so bad
tempered that he could never be broken
to harness, but was ridden under the
saddle. He had no speed either as a run
ner or trotter, not being able to do a
mile In four minutes at any gait. He
had a mule-like head and ears, a badly
ewed neck, and a rat tall. But he was
a Messenger, despite the Conastoga
crossing, and he was sold to Kentuck
ians for $4,500. In less than six months
the Kentuckians repented of their bar
gain, and sold him back to New Yorkers
for $500—Messrs. Simmons and Smith,
Bull’s Head dealers, buying him as a
speculation. This was in 1849. No
purchaser could t-he speculators find at
any price, and the stallion was virtually
given away to stop expenses of keep
ing him. About this time Charles Kent
wanted a new horse for his butcher wag
on, and traded, through Alexander
Campbell, of Bull's Head, his worn-out
mare to Edmund Seeley, a farmer in
Orange county, N. Y., for a steer
for butchering. This butcher's mare
had originally been sold to him by
Campbell, who had obtained her in a
drove of western horses, paying $40 for
her. Her pedigree was quite unknown.
This mare is known in American
horse history as the Charles Kent mare,
and is said to be by imported Bellfound
er. She was in foal to Abdullah when
Seeley got. her. and the colt became the
property of Bill Rysdyk, a hired man
on Seeley’s farm. Rysdyk looked around
for a name for his colt—a name which
should indicate the Messenger blood in
him. There had been in the early years
of the country a famous son of Messen
ger named Alexander Hamilton. This
horse finally became known as Bishop’s
Hamiltonian. In his effort to borrow
the name Rysdyk, being weak in or
thography, called his horse Rysdyk’s
Hambletonian. And so he lives in his
tory—false in his pedigree as in his

Fifty or more women in bathing cos
tume were lolling about on the beach
near one of Coney Island's best bathing
places one afternoon lately. They were
not, says the New York Sun, of the
wayfaring kind that go down from the
city with lunch boxes, hire a bathing
dress, take their plunge and then hurry
home to supper, but were mainly guests
at hotels, cottages from Bensonhurst,
tasteful wearers of their own garments.
A smaller number of men lounged on
the sand with these women, and wait
ed for the tide to rise to good swim
ming depth. For those who had eyes to
see there was hosiery aplenty—blue and
red and black, open work and shut, lisle
and cotton and silk. If there was a
knee in the crowd that was concealed
by the skirt of a bathing suit it es
caped attention.
Then a young woman strolled up and
sat down to play with a little girl. She,
too, belonged to the fashionable throng.
Her pale blue dress was well cut and
fitted, her auburn hair was prettily
coiled and cared for, and when, to please
the child she prepared to go in paddling,
It was a pair of silk stockings that she
laid carefully over her patent leather
ties and placed in a snug corner under
the bathing pavilion.
The pretty blue skirt, held in both
hands, rose six, then seven or eight,
then, perhaps ten inches, but no more

forward and backward about her feet
and ankles and she, apparently all un

But as soon as she was seen by the
reclining men and women on the sand
a ripple of “oh’s” and “my’s” and “Did
you ever?” and “For heaven’s sake!’1
ran up and down the adjacent beach.
Some of the women blushed and tried
not to seem to see, the frivolous gig

It wasn’t long before the girl in blue
