Thousands of Years Ago They Were Used Uy Children. After more than 20 centuries, the ruins of Babylon and Nineveh have been unearthed, and most frequent among the treasures brought to light have been small terra cotta figures and many beautitul carvings m ivory, which were most likely the fascinating dollies of little Assyrian ladies, says the Chicago News. The puppets with which Greek and Roman children amused themselves in ordinary had their being in clay. Their arms and legs were jointed and attached by threads, and were to dangle about on the doll, being shaken up and down or on a thong or string being pulled from below. Dolls of ivory and wax were not unknown, but these, no doubt, were tne playthings or tne ricner classes. Before marrying these maidens of classic times would make a sacrifice of their dolls to Venus or Diana, but if they died as children the dolls were buried with them, and most of those that we now possess have been discov ered in tombs. The origin :cf the name "doll" has baffled some of the wisest and most learned, the majority of whom have at least come to the conclusion that it comes from "Dolly," the diminutive of "Dorothy," a favorite name for girls in England two hundred years ago. The word "dor" is not found in com mon use in our language until the mid dle of the eighteenth century, and, as far as one can discover, first appears in 1 lie Gentleman s .Magazine tor September, 171, and the following dresses, made in St. James-st., have been sent to the Czarina to show the manner of dressing at present in fash ion among the English ladies." Prior to this the word used to describe the favorite plaything of all girls in all countries and in all ages ages was 'baby," which is to be together with 'poppet" or "puppet" in this sense in the works of most of the great earlier writers. The earliest English "babies" were of rags or wood. The latter were stiff, unjointed things in which the arms were only roughly indicated, and the legs, in most cases, not at ail. The way we arrived at the wax, china and more expensive sorts generally is curious. In the middle of the seventeenth cen tury there were no ladies' fashion pa pers as now. Consequently, in order to show what was most being worn on the Continent, dolls were accurate ly dressed up and sent round to the various European countries, and from the models orders were taken for cos tumes by the foreign milliners. The dolls themselves, rather than their dresses, attracted people, so that large numbers of the 'Mule fieures were im ported from abroad, and the majority and the best of them, coming from the Netherlands, were called "Flanders babies." A "Bartholomew baby" was a special kind sold at the old fair of that name, and was celebrated for the quantity of ribbons and mocK jewelry with which i: was decked out. William C. Todd, of Atkinson. N. II., has endowed the "Boston Public Libra ry with $2000 a year for the purchase of newspapers. Mr. Todd says he is "impressed with the increasing impor tance and influence of newspapers and the great demand for them by all classes of the community." He gives the money on the simple condition that the whole annual interest on $50.- 000 be expended for newspaper sub scriptions. The choice of the publica tions is left entirely to the library au thorities. Stretchers Are Wanted. While Marshal I.rown is waking fo: a legislative appropriaii:n for the mean to purchase a police wagon to be used largely as a hospital van, Geo. Driiison, the railway superintendent, has be"n doing something in Lis same fi-:d. Mr. Denison has ' caused to be made a dozen stretchers on plans re commended by a surgeon and has dis- tri bated. em along the line. The rai!- road says he thinks the practice ft o. placing sick or injured men on the j floor o in seats should be abandoned I and he has f and ending o nished the means for the rough old custom. n )r n:i n;;int,innn mana ger, r.as place. provided tehers for that Probate .Matters.

Our leathers are all choice Seal, Morroco, Calf, Hog-Skin, Monkey, Lizard, Rattle Snake, Kangroo, and other choice skins. The mountings and shape leave nothing to be desired, and so differ ent from anything else in the city, that you are assured of a choice and exculsive pattern beside the lasting quality of the leather itself.
