A POMPADOUR EPOCH IN PARLOR AND BOUDOIR. People are Going in this Spring for Enamel in White and Gold—lt Costs a Mint of Money or it Can be Done Very Cheaply if You Please -How to Furnish in the Style of Louis XV. and XVI. (Copyrighted 1888.1 New York, April 21. —It was a small pal lor stand. There was not a straight line about the frame. The slender gold legs bent tin and out in full round curves. The tray •which formed the top was a long oval and was covered with satin brocade of a delicate flesh tint, flowered with rose sprays, w hose pale pink blossoms were fully blown and scattering the outer, pinky-white leaves. “It’s going up town this afternoon,” said the salesman. “It cost $235.” It suggested irresistibly a pastel of Marie Antoinette as its appropriate burden and finish. Masquerading in her peasant cos- Itume as the wife of Miller Louis she should ilift her skirts to dance the gavotte, her wil lowy figure on its soft gray ground smiling out of a frame of gold-oolorea ribbon bows. Close by stood a low couch. It repro duced the'same voluptuous curves, making them even fuller, rounder, more alluring, fits frame was of white enamel penciled with gold, and it was upholstered with rose colored silk. Pompadour might have thrown herself upon it, and Boucher might have painted her there luxuriantly beauti ful, her blue gown cut low in a wide square to show her fair throat, all a sparkle with silver laces and shimmering rose leaves. The world has turned its back on sorrow. It laughs and shows its dimples and its white teeth this spring. Let us eat, drink and be merry, for after us conies the flood. There’s no use wearying continually for the salva tion of one’s soul. The sky is blue and co quetry is amusing. Let us powder our hair and dance. They were in the sight of it, (hose charming countesses and marquesses who tripped it on the lawns of Versailles and Marly. No more of Gothic aspirations and mediaeval mysticism and constant searches after hidden fneanings. Away with aestheticism. No more of the cold, hard, uncompromising straight line. No more or set, conventional designs. Let us go back to the light hearted, the bright-colored, the sunshiny. Let us swear allegiance to pret tiness. Let us be graceful. Let us simper. Let us be artificial, if we please. Let us try luxury and polish and, not tenderness ex actly, but its picturesque, butterfly simili tude. This may not be the way we think, but it is the way we are dressing and furnishing this spring. Never was there a franker re nunciation of old idols. The pendulum swings from Morris to Watteau and Bou cher, and Boucher in his gayest, Frenchiest and most frivolous mood. Now, then, for white and gold. Now, then, for rococo. Now, then, for full pocketbooks, for the new furniture is the costliest yet introduced and a room may cost thousandsa house, a small or large fortune. “How would you fit a drawing-room in the reigning gtyle 1” It was the head of a decorating firm of whom the question was asked. “1 would make it a combination of the Louis XV. and Louis XVI. designs. I say combination, for there are no pure styles nowadays, but these two are the same prac tically, the later being only a simplification and refinement of the earlier. If I were to make a typical example of good rococo work, as characteristic, if not as costly, as that which is goiug into Mrs. Hopkins- Searles’ big house at Great Barrington, Mass., I should want from $4,000 to SB,OOO to do it with. Then I should start with the ceiling. This should be painted in pale blue and pink, in clear white, in soft gray, in all manner of delicate light tints in "designs after Fragonard or Watteau with lutes tied with knot* of ribbons, cherubs’ or women’s faces. The walls should be done in white and gilt panels, with the spaces between filled in with silk tapestry or white flow ered brocades, or with silk damusks in re productions of last century designs, or with brocatelle. The floor should be polished wood inlaid. All the fireplace surroundings from the renaissance andirons to the mov able fender, the shovel and the tongs should be heavily gilt bronze. The mirror and picture frames, the clocks and the brackets should be gilt or gold. The chandelier should be crystal. There should be rose colored silk hangings or flowered damasks or white plush at the windows. The vases, jardiniers and bric-a-brac of all descrip tions should be Dresden or Serves china in the most delicately finished and opulent de signs. “The room decorated and ready for its furnishings would have cost already any where from S2OO up to $5,000 When it comes to choosing fumitude there is the same latitude in price. Suppose you look at some of the designs.” Whether in the style of the two Louis or in any other method of furnishing, few people buy what used to be called a full set of furniture nowadays. The craze of two or three years ago for fitting a room wholly with odd pieces has died also. In refurnishing, a parlor suit of from throe to five pieces is taken aud supplemented with whatever is desired to Complete the fittings. In Pompadour furniture the woodwork has small latitude allowed it. Tables and desks are fine examples of hand painting on wixxl or maiqueterie, but arm-chairs, couches and fancy chairs are enameled in gold or white and gold, or more rarely in pale blue or pink. A deeply upholstered low sofa has a gold frame. It is covered with pale pink satin, flowered with running vines in white and dull blue. It costs $275, though a couch of much the same shape with cheaper enamel aud worsted or silk and worsted brocade cover giving a similar general effect can be hought for SBO. A low couch chair has a frame of blue euarnel picked out with gold. It is upholstered with Aubussou’s best copy in silk tapestry of the older styles, and it is sold for $415. A fancy chair for corner use is a study in curves. It twists in and it t wists out. It has a straw seat, and seat aud frame are heavily enameled in gold with flower design, making a loose wreath about the straw. It is worth $l5O. A standing screen is set in a white enameled frame. A piece of old brocade with dancing sliepherdes.es fora design is laced into it with gold ribbons. It costs $125. A desk in satin wood is a quaint affair, with its round bulging curves. It must have taken expert workmen a long time to finish it, for the top shows a mythological scene cleverly done in marquotorie, the woods as carefully and accurately shaded as if it wero the work of the paint brush instead of the in layer. A white aud gold piano isone of the new and choice possessions. A crystal chan delier for candles may cost $1,300. The first Louis XV. room fitted up in New York U in the Villard house now owned by Mrs. Whitelaw Reid. Mrs. Raid superintended the furnishing and it is said to have cost not much short of $10,0(10. Mrs. Potter Palmer, of Chicago, and Mrs. Honkins-Soarles are also converts to white and gold. To get the cheerful effect of the light Rimshiuey coloring one need not necessarily go to so much expense. Many people in deed owe allegiance to the French pretti ness only so far as the summer cottage or, in the city, the bedrooms are concerned, and for such apartments the Pompadour colorings are the easiest, the most attractive and almost the cheapest to obtain. For in stance there is a tendency to return to paint ed chamber sets which are to the tasteless things formerly sold under that, name as daylight to darkness. The new painted set shows the same delicate lines and graceful curves which obtain in parlor furniture. The chairs are straw-seutwl and their frames and indeed all the woodwork is colored a faint blue or a soft gray, or an ecru tint, this being then picked out in brown or in gilt and covered with small, scattered single flowers in a chintz or print design. The upholstered couch-chairs and arm-chairs are covered with flowered chintzes and there are s ec’al designs ia cretonnes and chintz which come for wall ’Hangings with such fittings. One such, which can be had fora dollar a yard, has a soft, sky finish and is made with a white ground overspread with a flower pattern in the Louis XV. style. There are new wall papers also de signed in Pompadour patterns for just this use. \\ all papers indeed can be had by women who want white and gold parlors, but cannot indulge in tapestries. The most recent makes give the effect of white and gold paneling with patterns in large or small effects as needed. For the chamber windows there are Pompadour challice aud cretonnes and chintzes and a world of flow ered materials. The white and gold fever will last this summer. How much longer one cannot tell. “Styles used to last four years, now they sometimes change in four weeks,” said a furniture man yesterday. It is some proof of the comparative permanence of the taste, however, that the antique ami colouial hall and dining-room furniture is already somewhat, affected. It keeps to some extent its straight lines but indulges in French and Italian renaissance rather than old English carvings. Eliza Putnam Heaton. GEORGE HUNT PENDLETON, MINISTER TO GERMANY. George H. Pendleton, of Ohio, Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipoten tiary, from the United States to Germany, had a slight stroke of apoplexy a day or two ago, as noted in the Morning News’ cable dispatches. Mr. Pendleton was born in 1825, He was married in 1840 to Alice Key, daughter of Francis S. Key, the au thor of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The lady of his choice was also a niece of Roger B. Taney, Chief-Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Mr. Pendleton’s career as afstatesman be gan. when he was about 110 years old, with his election to the Ohio State Senate, of which he was a member in 1854 and 1855, giving him an experience of statesmanship in connection with the practice of his pro fession as a lawyer. This he has pursued with assiduity when his public services have permitted, from his admission to the bar until now. He was a member of the House of Repre sentatives for eight years, ending with the Thirty-eighth Congress. His term in the Senate ended March, 1885. It was the full term of six years. When the war for the Union began, Mr. Pendleton was a member of the House of Sepresentatives. Then, as now, he was at tached to the Democratic part}’, aud was an advocate of compromise so long as there seemed any possibility of it. When all at tempts in that direction failed, however, he favored the continuance of coercive meas ures for the maintenance of the Union. In 1864 he was nominated for the Vice Presi dency on the ticket with Gen. McClellan. He was a delegate to the Philadelphia Na tional Convention in 1866. Three years later he was an unsuccessful candidate for the governorship of Ohio. In 1869, the same year, he was elected president of the Kentucky' Railroad Company. Perhaps Mr. Pendleton’s greatest accom plishment as a statesman was the prominent part he took in the advocacy of civil ser vice reform. He was chairman of the Sen ate committee having the matter in hand. As such he introduced, in the year 1880, the bill that became law in 1882. In person Mr. Pendleton is somewhat taller than the average man. His figure is stout; his head large and his neck short. He is always well-dressed, and is the pink of correct deportment and gentlemanly courtesy. This has always charac terized him, aud won for him twenty years ago, the title “Gentle man George,” by which he is still known. He is distinguished among our public men for generous and elegant hos pitality, both at home in Cincinnati and while in Washington. His address, both in public and private, is remarkable for ele gance and preciseness of expression. Most of his public addresses are first written at full length, memorized and rehearsed, and his apjiearances are always welcome toper sons of good taste. The wife of his youth is dead. His only son is practicing law in New York city; his other children, two in number, are daughters. MARY D. LOWMAN, MAYOR OF OSKALOOSA, KANSAS. Kansas leads, of all the States in the Union, in the prominen- it gives to woman in municipal affairs. The honors given to Mavor Salter, the petticoated mayor of Argonia, are shared by Mayor Lowman, of Oskaloosa, the subject of this sketch, who possesses an ad vantage over her sister mayor in being supported by a female council chamber. Mrs. Lowman was bern in Pennsylvania about forty-nine years ago. Bhe has lived in Kansas twenty years, and at Oska loosa. eighteen. All her life she has been a very busy woman, and nobody doubts that she will prove to he a first-class mayor. She began her active life as a school teacher and continued to teach long after marriage. Mr. Lowman, her husband, is now and lias been for several years. Register of Deed*. During reoent years Mrs. Lowman bos served the public as Deputy County Clerk and Deputy Register of Deeds. Hne is a neatly dressed attractive-looking THE MORNING NEWS: MONDAY, APRIL 23, 1888. woman, motherly and wise. Her two children, a son and daughter, are both grown, and her time can lie liberally given to the public service. Mrs. Lowniau’s political faith is Republican; her religious denomination, Presbyterian. THE FANCIES OF WOMEN FOLK. A Bunch of Novelties for Divers Uses —Women's Doings. New York, April 2L —lt is almost time for the annual adjournment to the country, and preparations for the flitting abound on every hand. A novelty for the summer cot tage is furniture in a combination of bam boo and maple, highly polished in the nat ural colorings. Most of it is Imported and it is newer, though perhaps not prettier, than summer furniture all of bamboo. Another summer fancy is a portiere hang ing of ball fringe, meant to supplant the reed and rattan hangings. It is made of silk or worsted cords wound perhaps with tinsel, different, cords being of different lengths, and all being terminated by silk and tinsel balls. Summer window hangings come in several new materials and in novel desigus. 1 here are thin gauze-like grena dines, which yet drape prettily', and which show the green and brown, gobelin blue and gold, terracotta and olive combinations which are the season’s color crazes. Some what more substantial is a Moorish drapery in a cotton canvas figured in dull blues and pink. There are soft crepe clothes, special summer weaves in lace-like patterns of Madras goods, and Tenitian silk curtains which are costly enough aud delicate enough for use all the year round. For the summer cottage parlor the music rack consists of forked sticks of bamboo with a portfolio of rough sheeets of birch bark. The summer calendar for the cot tage wall is a square of brlstol board paint ed with clover heads and grasses. From it hang three, iuch-wide grass green ribbons, painted with the names of the months, days of the week, and days of the month respec tively, which are so adjusted with respect to one another as to keep track of the fly ing vacation days. The summer screen is a length of matting, painted with flowers or with a seaside scene, with fringe of fresh ravelled rope, and hanging by rope knots from its stand. The summer tidy for the —presumably non-upholstered cottage chair consists of two flat cushions of wash silk in some sea blue or pale green tint, em broidered in outline stitch with sea mosses and shells, and connected with each other by narrow interlacing ribbons. One cush ion comes over the top of the chair, the other falls down be hind. The slumber cushions have pine cones, etc., on them just as they did last year, and the satin toilet cushions are painted with rocks and sea gulls. For table service at the seashore comes an oddity in the water pitcher line. Its base is sustained by four turtles which are crawl ing up against it. Its handle is the writh ing form of a horned fish. Its briin is shaped from a pink scallop shell and half way up the side, clings a crab. Finger bowi napkins for the seaside are tiny square films of wash silk embroidered with shells and moss. There are special country china sets in pretty color chinas in which every piece take* the shape of a natural object. One fishes one's potatoes out of a big china cabbage head and eats one’s strawberries from a delicately turned up oak leaf. The summer girl’s parasol has a bull’s eye watch set in its handle to tell her when to have the boat’s head turned homeward or when tne moonlight stroll must positively come to an end. No parlor is complete just now without a , 5 o’clock tea stand. A slender upright of wought iron curves over the top and hangs a small copper teakettle, burnished and mounted in silver or gilt, just above an alcohol lamp fitted in the same style and set in an iron ring projecting from the side. The tea stand is driving out the samovar. My lady who dispenses the fragrant beverage takes a good deal of sat isfaction in the ingenious little contrivance at her elbow. It is goblets now. Tumblers are out. They began to decline a year ago, and have resigned themselves to back seats by this time. The goblet is of the best crystal the housewife can afford, plain, etched or en graved. The engraved goblets, which range from those content with a monogram to elaborate flower designs, may be made to cost as much as SSO a dozen. Colored glass for table use is not gone nor rapidly going, but it has a strong rival in crystal, the use of which among people who prefer a quiet elegance to more brilliant effect is gaining ground every day. When crystal is used the table is set with flat mir rors for table mats which reflect the delicate shapes. Dealers say that any new thing in colored glass takes amazingly, but that in default of an especial novelty white glass is beginning to outsell it. The piano lamp lias become a work of art. In its newest form it is a small table of elaborately wrought cut steel. Above this rises the lamp standard, the eonspicu oul feature of which is its flower shads. Rose shales have lioen used for some little time, but the newer ones are masses of deep tinted “art” roses, full blown and with sprays of rose foliage hanging down here and there. Dark red roses crowded to gether and exact copies of nature make very effective shades. Another faucy is to have the shade of porcelain, but to place on one side an inniense yellow “art” rose with a trail of half blown roses and buds hang ing to the table below. A third whim is a feather shade of pale yellow cock’s plumes with birds fastened on it here and there. The most unique of all is a parasol shape, life size, in ruby silk with flounces of eban tilly lace. The newest flower to lie reproduced in the enamelled jewelry is the morning glory. Particular people have their pins copied in miniature for tiny flower pins to fasten lace anywhere about the dress, or for the .bon net.. The hat pin should have a large gold ball for a head this summer. The pin for the hair should be of shell with a twist of gold for the top. “It’s not a very common trade for a woman, I know, but the business was left on my hands and I have to carry it on.” The sign on the front of the establish ment on one of the principal sti eets of Brooklyn says: “Mrs. , Undertaker and Embalmer.” The windows do not dis play the usual mortuary emblems but are full of flowering plants instead. The round, plump little woman who ia the proprietor is busy with some sort of embroidery, swinging to aud fro in a low rocker with a crape-covered coffin to the right of her and a pile of rosewood caskets, surmounted by a baby’s coffin in white, to the left. Her husband was the original undertaker of the family. He became first crippled with rheumatism, leaving the active control of things in her hands as bis assistant, aud then died. She liad learned the busmens and continued it. “I’m a bit handy with tools,” she said, in answor to an inquiry; “and took to the trim very naturally. You don’t know what the trim is? That's putting on the handles and plates and putting in tbe lining. Cloth-, covered coffins mostly cornu with the drap ing on them, but rpsewood and such are de livered plain and we furnish them ourselves to suit people’s tastes. I used to manage the moldings very neat ly, but moldings are not in fashion now. Oh, yes; people are very ready to employ a woman as an undertaker. I always have about as much as I can do. There’s the old customers, the families my husband used to buy for; they don’t forget me, aud new ones come as fast as they find me out. .Sometimes they sav they’d rather have me round, especially if it’s a womun or a child, at such time than a man. If it’s a man that’s dead, I hav* a man as assis tant to lieip me; if It’s a woman, I manage it atone. ‘Embalming?’ I’m always iu the room and superintend it, but I’ve beau a little too tender-hearted to do it for my self. ‘Disagreeable?’ Not more so than a good many other ways of earning a living. There isn’t much that's exactly rose-clored in this world. ‘Other women in the busi ness,” There’s one other in the city, 1 think, and one or two in New York.” The exhibition of the work of the women etchers of America which has been in pro gress at the Union League Club for a fort night has been au agreeable surprise to vic tors not previously familiar with the strength, directness" and freshness of ex pression which characterizes much of the work of women artists in this field. Judged by the severest of artistic standards the ex hibit makes and honorable showing. Mrs. M. Nimmo Moran, of the family of artists, show s the most vigor and masculine energy of line. Mrs. Moran was one of the early etchers of the New York Etching Club, organized in 1877. She was represented in the first exhibition of the I/melon Society of Fainter Etchers and was elected to mem bership. Mrs. Greatorex, who has used the etching needle for twenty years, shows a a quick eye for landscape composition and translation, and appreciation of construc tive strength. Miss Mary J. Cassell’s work is remarkable for color feeling, and the col lection includes creditable exhibits from a good number more. The ladies’ bicycle which is making some thing of a stir in Washington is built some what after the plan of the safety bicycle with two wheels of moderate side. Be tween these the bar dips down close to the ground, so that bi fil i ation of the skirts is whollyuunecessnry. Themachino is ridden like the tricycle in ordinary walking dross and the seat is quite as seemly. The bicycle has been exhibited in Now York, but has no riders here as yet. The three uhoeled ma chine is likely to retain its hold in spite of its t wo-wheeled rival for the ladies’ bicycle hasn’t the speed of a Columbia expert, and a “spill” would be quite as embarrassing to a woman if the seat were higher, though certainly less dangerous. E. I’. H. SOME OF BARNUM’S LETTERS. The Shower of Curious Requests and Suggestions Rained on Him. h\om the Neto York Sun. Mr. Earnum's benevolence and charity, his fondness for children, and his connec tion with the “greatest show on earth,” causes this venerable showman to be flooded with letters containing most absurd aud ex traordinary requestsand demands. A (xiv erty-stricken clergyman with a generous supply of sons and daughters and au ac compaving scarity of money, writes of a “balloon railroad” which he has invented after years of study, aud which he prophe sies will not only prove ail immense at traction to the Madison Square circus, but will ult mutely revolutionize the present crude mode of transportation. A woman writes from Virginia to offer for his purchasing a remarkable Plymouth Rock rooster, with an unusual ball or tuft of feathers on one side of its head. A man describes a curiosity In the form of a heifer without any tail, and another man in a distant part of the globe goes one higher, and advertises a heifer with no tail and no eyes. Calves with five and six 1 gs, and calves with two or three pedal extreme ties, flood the market. A man in Maryland writes of a horse that is half horse and half camel, and u boy de scribes a white squirrel, the counterpart of which has never been seen. Some ono iu Niagara has Capt. Webb’s hat for sale, the hat he wore before he sw am the whirlpool. An old soldier offers a note written by Abraham Lincoln, and someone else will sell for SSOO the programme which Lincoln held in his hind the night he was assassinated, and whichis stained with drops of his blood. Most touching of all is a woman’s re quest that Mr. Bamum shall purchase from her a pair of old brass candlesticks which belonged to his first wife, and which the woman had purchased of Jjer mother many years ago. With a during disregard for syntax and a charming originality in orthography a woman writes as follow.: “Mr. t. P. Barnum -I have a Little Boy witch if was trained a little would make a splendid Performer he is nine years old yet Light compiected Large blue Eyes Curley hair until cut of very quick disposition in fack a grate manny speak of His good looks & Daring riding.” A young man writes for a position in the circus, ami adds: “Remember that you were once young and had aspiration like myself.” A young lady asks for money to pursue her musical studies abroad, and an other begs funds with which to continue her art studies in New York, and an old lady asks for S2OO to obtain a position for herself in a home for elderly gentlewomen. An invalid sends in a modest request to be brought to New York and put under a noted physician’s treatment, and accompanies her request with the supplication, “Please, Mr. Bamum, don’t let me lie here and die. I beg of you for the love of God grant my request ” Someone writes to suggest the propriety of Mr. Barnuin erecting a monu ment over the grave of a defunct lion tamer, once in his employ. A congratulatory letter from an unknown admirer concludes by remarking: "No man is so well known and so general ly beloved as Barnuin, now that Beecher is dead. Why not nominate him for our future President? He would lie my ideal of an American, a typical representative of the pluck, enterprise, courage, and intelli gence of the people of the republic.” Countless letters from children are re ceived containing various requests, many questions about “Tom,” the hero of his story recently published, and several child ish poems inspired by the great show, which is to children a never-failing source of de light. A little cripple in Texas writes for a show bill containing Mr. Barnum’s picture, and a little boy writes to know if “tlie little ponies the clown rides were burned in the fire, and if Tom Bradford, the horo of his story, will lie in the circus this year.” From an institution for the blind comes the request for a pass to the circus, and from a bright little lad comes a polite re minder of a pony promised him some seven years ago by Mr. Bamum. Avery small but shrewd youth writes: “Mr. Barnum —Please let me have a lit tle baby zebra when the big one gets little ones, and if you have one now, please let me know. I will pay you from $L to $5 for it, and no more. This is all at present. Answer soon. Yours truly, B. 8. L." MEDICAL. Despondency or Melancholy, Commonly calls*i the “blues," coed* from a livs*r.
