In thoso days It is not only possible, but quite practicable, to produce har mony and leauty with inexpensive fit monts. Whero good tato prorailfi in the selection cf colors, for instance, the wall, the floor covering, hanging and draperies are all in keeping and tho whole in nnison with the furniture. In dining rooms, as the artistic housewife known, blue should bo u.-ed sparingly, for it is too absorbing, and dead white and grays are too cold and cheerless tq be employed in profusion. In many din ing rooms there is a trimming of oak, in which case oak furniture is in order, and the walls and carpet will be in keeping if of a golden russet hue. "With .such a combination tho draperies may bo of the color known as old bine. The Khape of the table is a matter of choice. When thero is ample space, the round table, which presents no nncoin fortable corners, is admirable. Tho square table has a greater seating ca pacity, however, and when the family is a large one and the dining room not overwido it is to bo commended. What ever tho form, be sure that the table is substantial. manufacturers have at last awakened to the fact that thero is a demand for comfortable chairs in the dining room as well as in the drawing room. By all means select chairs that are inviting and restful. Provide an armchair for the carver. He is entitled to its comfort able supports, especially if ho be tho herd of a large family. A second arm chair should be included in tho furnish ing for his vis-a-vis. If she presides at .the coffee and tea urn, it will' bo phys-r ical economy as well as a mark of dig nity. The remaining chairs do not call for arms, as in an ordinary dining room these occupy too much space, but they should bo comfortable. Avoid high back chairs. These ob struct daylight and throw gloomy shad ows under artificial light. A high back ed chair is also a serious inconvenienco to tho waiter or waitress and is respon sible for many a mishap in way of bro ken dishes, overfilled goblets and tho spilling of gravies and soups. If tho chair back reaches to tho shoulder blades, it is quite high enough. When the cost does not interfere, upholstered furniture covered with leather is tho preferred sort for dining rooms. It is easily kept clean and will last almost a lifetime. - In regular dining room sets a loungo is usually includ i and adds a decidedly cozy aspect to ;jo room. Tho sideboard must harmonize with tJio other furniture, though it need not necessarily match it. When tho room is a largo one, this piece becomes a sub ject for serious consideration, for if properly selected it assists more than any other one article in furnishing the apartment. A large room requires a commodious sideboard. Tho moro mass ive, other things being equal, tho bet- OLD KMiLIsi! HHESSEK. ter will 1h tho gmeral effect. High top sideboards, when graceful in construc tion and artistic in finish, appear to ad vantage in rooms with high ceilings.

There has Ik en revived from tho fash ions of a crntnry ago tho low buffet, a tablelike sideward, with brackets and drawers, but without any top.

Caldwell began his railroad career 43 years ago as a clerk in the of-, fice of tho Pennsylvania railroad. Today he is president of tho Lake Khore and Michigan Southern. Mr. Caldwell was born in Mawa chusettA in 1830 and at tho age of 22 turned his am bitious mind to railroading. Aft er a year's clerk ship he entered the civil engi neering depart ment of the road and remained there three years. p. w. ai.dwej.l, Hi very appar ent talent for tho railroad business and his executive ability then led to his securing the office of general tnperin tendent of the Pittsburg and Connells ille railroad. In 1859 ho became gen eral superintendent of the Central Ohio railroad, an office he filled until 1874, when he resigned to accept a more ad vantageous position as general manager of tho Columbus, Chicago and Indiana Central, tho Pittsburg, Cincinnati and St Louis, tho Little Miami, the Cincin nati and Muskingum Valley, tho Jeffer sonville, Madison and Indianapolis and the Vandalia roads. Ho held this important position until 1881; when the Pennsylvania road again employed him, not as olerk, but as gen eral manager of all the Pennsylvania lines west of Pittsburg. In 1883 he was elected vice president of the Nickel Plate road. He was appointed receiver later, and when tho road was reorgan ized in 1887 he was elected president. Ho pursued a cut rate policy that caus ed considerable comment in railroad circles, but during his regime, which ended very recently, he succeeded in raising tho road from a condition of al aaost hopeless bankruptcy to a place among tho sound roads of tho east. He resides in Cleveland and although a bachelor is a very liberal entertainer. A NEW BELLAMY COLONY. NatlonalUm to Receive a I "Tact leal Dein titration at BeltzhooTer, Pa. Tho Bellamy Co-operative association of Beltzhoover, Pa., is to found a colony in Beltzhoover, and tho cornerstone was recently laid by Mrs. Samuel Duncan Karns, wife of Dtuio Karus, an oil re gion pioneer who was atono time worth millions. Tho colonists will endeavor to carry out Edward Bellamy's theories of nationalism. There are 14 full and 0 associate members of the colony, and the full members are to do the work at present and receive their pay in colony certifi cates at the rate of 25 cents an hour. Those certificates authorize the holder SAMUEL DUNCAN KAliKS. to draw a proportionate share of the products of the association. The asso ciate members will give their aid in either money or labor while they are on probation and will bo entitled to all the privileges of the colony except thopriv ilege of voting. When they aro believed to have absorbed the true principles of Bellamy nationalism, they will bo re ceived into full membership. Tho asso ciation owns nine building lots, which were deeded the colony by Edward White, one of the members, in exchange for colony certificates. No money will bo used by tho colonists except in their dealings with tho outside world, and they will build houses and manufacture different articles as a means of liveli hood. Dune Karns, who displays such an interest in tho colony, was an oil re gion character almost as celebrated as Coal OilJohnny. Ho was born at Karns Station, in Butler comity. Pa., rl years ago, was boring for oil in West Virginia before tho war, entered the United States army at tho ago of 17, fought throughout tho rebellion and left tho service a first lieutenant. After tho war he returned to tho oil business. and at one time ho had an income of $r,000 a day from a singlo oil well. Duno was fond of champagne, and whenever ho made a rich striko he would smash every silk hat in town and pay for them tho next day. no was at one timo considered worth f 3,000,000, but lost nearly all his money fighting the Standard Oil company. Important to Men of Fashion. "I beg of tho young men that stil wear yrvy long frock coats and think themselves well dressed to stop it at once," says Tho Saunterer in Town Topics. "Tho long frock coat has been out of fashion for weeks, and London coats are now made extremely short, ending above the kneo and branching out likoa ballerina's skirts. This notice should to put up in all clubs. I seo that even some of the JIuiekcvlxcker men aro still clinging to their last winter freak frock coats, with skirts that all but scrapn the ground. And I suppose cverylKxly has seen tho new London derby hat. Lis as Hat as a pancake and looks considerably liko a fried gg. " The Daily Advertiser month in advance. cnts n Ladies' Column.
