Theaters and with other publio rilao.es ot entertainment of that city, le came to F.uropc about two and a half years ago, and during the past two years has been a pnmiinent tiipire at several of the best known Parisian clubs. The stories told of his play seem al most incredible, but it is certain that he had 'two years ago one of the most ro - markablc mns of luck ever known at curds. In August, ihm, Mr. Doutsch won for twenty-eight consecutive days at the Washington and Press Clubs, and during those days his smallest winning ' was eighteen thousand francs and his highest two hundred and sixty thousand I francs. lie never lost on any one of these days, and his total winuings were over . one million, seven hundred thousand franca. That all of this sum has gone, and much more with It, in two years it 1 is not necessary to say. How it has gone the sumptuous banquets at Dclmonico's, New York, in Paris and in London ' costing thousnnds and tens of thousands , of francs each; still further, heavy and uuiuckv play, ami indeed all the ex twvagances of suddenly acquired wraith, will tell. A correspondent of the Morning News met Mr. Deitt.sch before his de parture and expressed surprise at his going. '' es," said, Mr. Peutsch; "I am going back .after a terrible experience.

Exploring Hudson's Bay. The Canadian Government intends to make a thorough exploration of the great inland sea that occupies so large a portion ol North America. The coun try bordering upon Hudson's Bay has. heretotore been of value merely for Us fur crop; but the Canadian Pacific Rail road, which is being constructed through the wilderness between Lake Superior and Hudson's Bay, has called attention to tho industrial and commercial possi bilities of the latter. There is said to be a wheat region north and northwest of Minnesota and Dakota, large enough to supply all the world with Hour. At any rate, the Canadian Government has appointed experienced scientists to re veal to the world the exact value of the region surrounding Hudson's Bay. This is a matter of interest to us, for the time cannot bo distant when all North America will be ours. There is no nat ural boundary between the United States and tho Dominion.

All the green shades, the various blue and garnet tints are very handsome, and it is wikli dilliculty that an expert can detect tho rich black Nonpareil at two dollars tho yard from Lyons velvet at ten dollars. The first will certainly wear better than the lat ter. For complete dresses, suits, jack ets, basques, overdresses, children's clothing and the ttke, it is in every way desirable and looks as well as Lyons velvot at a fifth of the cost. This velvet een will be much used for redingotes, lined with satin surah. It is equally as handsome as Lyons velvet, and can not be distinguished from it, except that the pile docs not rub up or pull out nor Hat tea so easily. Tho sanspareil poplins brought out for the early fall trade ex hibit Bome of the characteristics of the old-time Irish poplins, but are decided ly finer in quality and softer in texture.

Slightly ribbed cloth is mora largely imported than the smooth h.b!t, :oth, and the rough bourette bison cloths will be worn again this winter. A new effect is given these by the arranging of threads in small cross-bars. Gray blue is a new shade in which these cloths appear, which is called Gordon blue, and there are bright greens which are called Little Duke green, and the cresson green, already familiar to our ladies. Those most adrairod are tho mordore, or golden brown, tho dahlia. prune and plum shades the red plum, and blue or damsou tints. Some of the recent woolens show brocaded tisures like velvet.aud others have large balls of loosely woven silver or gilt threads ar ranged on separate breadths, so that they wilfbo only used at the foot of the skirt, and there are bars and cross-bars of tinsel worn in the samo way. In some instances the trimming for the new cloths is arranged on the dress pattern. and consists of bands of Astrakhan cloth, or designs in velvets outlined with Escurial cord. Another style shows tho new oable-cord put on in bor ders, and fringed out llutlily at the ends. The Astrakhan bands are used as a bor der put on the foot of tho skirt und on the jacket, and from six to ten mches deep. Another style is to place the As trachan bands across the entire front and side of the skirt, below a short apron drapery. Wido velvet ribbon may be used in this way on cloth dresses, and there are vines of applique ngured velvet lor the same purpose. French cashmeres come in all the new shailc3, with tiny silk figures that look vory much like embroidery, but these are only to be used for the basque or parts of the skirt, while the plain cashmere makes tho foundation of the dress. One pretty piece is in Gordon blue, with embroidored spots of red with a gold rim. Brooklyn Eagle. The Locomotion of Shells.

It was only when taking our midday rest, or at our camps for the night, that I was abletostudythe'llora around me and note the beauty and profuscness of it- torms. urchids were abundant enough, and, although I saw no species of great rarity, yet several kinds wl ich were in flower at the time were ery lovely. Bromelias and tillandsias grew in thousands, and the immense leaves of the pothos were seen everywhere. In oue or two places I noticed the rare and beautiful climbing palm (desmoacus), and in the open parts of the foro't were great numbers of caladiums, the vari colored loaves of which aro so familiar in our hothouses. Animal life was in no way ptoininent, although thero could be no doubt that the lorest was thickly peopled, for at night as we sat around tho caiup-lire or lay in our hammocks many were the weird sounds that came from tho thick jungle near by. The nightly concert was usually started by the bo sun, a large cicada, who sat ui tho tree-tops and blow a tremulous whistle which could be heard to a great distance. He was followed by the hylas, or tree toads, who gave vent to every conceiv able sound, from that of the sawing of wood to the clanking of many chains, and were accompanied . in their vocal efforts by their relations in the marshes, who kept up a deep and not unmusical bass. All night long the goatsuckers never desisted from their melancholy moaning, and once in awhile a strange, mournful wail came from the forest. causing us to start and shiver as wo heard it. It was the note of the bird called lost soul. Once or twice the loud, deep roar of the iaruar was heard, and It never tailed to cause a panic anions the Indians, who invaria bly moved their hammock-poles nearer the water or raised the hammocks high er in the trees to be out of the tiger s reach should he pass our way. Out of all the appalling, blood-curdling sounds that were heard in these tropical woods none could equal the noise that came from tho throat of the red-coatod. black-faced, howling monkey (mycetcs semculus), tho "baboon ot ihe colony. Occasionallv some of these baboons fa vored us with a little rehearsal during the night, but it was towards morning that the concert itself began, and then, until I became accustomed to it, there was no more sleep for me. Words are inadequate to describe the sound which these animals produce, it is something Detween a nowi and a roar, witn an oo casional grunt thrown in, the whole be ing delivered with about the intensity of a fog-whistle, and the concert being participated in by baboons for miles around. When all these lellows are at tending strictly to business tho result in the way of a noise may be imagined. Tracks of the tapir were several times seen in marshy places near the river bank, and I sometimes got a shot at flocks of tho little, red sacnawinki mon keys, which were very common on this river. Iguanas called "Waimucka"' by the Indians, frequently tumbled from the branches into the stream when we paddled near the shore, and on two occasions some of our men brought in peccaries, or bush-hogs, which they had shot with their arrows near our eamp, and which proved a most wel come addition to our larder, notwith standing their rankness; but visible game was scarce, and a man would have had a poor living who depended on his gun for support.

Washington Hatchet. Y Tho Legend of Star Island. L "7 During the troublesome times before and subsequent to the revolution the Isles of Shoals, off the coast of New Hampshire were tho rosort and hiding places of the freebooters who haunted the northern coast, and these silent rocks, if they could speak, would tell many a talo ot bloody cruelly and gloomy wrong. Tho pirates used to come here to divide and hide their booty, and melt up the silverplate they cap tured from the colonists along tho coast. For a long time i was supposed that bushels of doubloons were buried in the ? aping crevices of tho rocks, or the ittlecaves that have been eaten out of tho ledges' by the restless tide; but the place was thoroughly searched bv several generations of fishermen, and nothing more valuable than a rustv cutlass or a bust blunderbus was ever found. The grandames tell how Captain Kydd came here often "as he sailed a ho sailed," and there are legends of other pi rates quite as tierce and free as ho. 'I he Star Island used to be haunted by a beautiful specter with long white robes and golden tresses reaohinc to tier heels who used to como out of some undiscov- ; cred cavern at dawn and shadowing her eyes with a hand that was as white and beautiful as a lily's bosom, gaze oB upon the sea in hopeless expectancy ol the return of a clipper thut sailed away and never eamo back again. The story goes that a bloody-heartod old pirato, being pursued by a cruiser, brought his beautiful mistress here and loft her whilo ho went out to buttle, telling her that by dawn he would be back again, but he came not, not even till now. Sho died of starvation, but her fuithf ul spirit still comes to the sum mit of the island as the sun rises each morning, to meet the corsair, who never returned. There are eight of tho islands, tho smallest being as large, or rather an small, as a city building lgt, and thu largest containing only a couple of hun dred acres nothing but bare, lifeless rocks, carved by the incessant waves into strauge grotesqueness, and covered by no vegetation except low clinging vines and tho New England blueberry. Four of the islands are inhabited, tho largest, tho Appledore, bears a hotel and a few cottages. Star Island has another hotel and a small settlement of fishermen, a third has a few fishermen's huts, and the fourth has a bold, white lighthouse springing out of its crest. They wero discovered by Captain John Smith, the friend of Poca hontas, who in liili explored tho New England coast iu an open boat, and spent some time here making repairs and resting. On Starlsland stands the only monu ment erected iu America to Captain John Smith it is a rude iilVuir a prismatic shaped shaft of marble, upon a pedestal of sandstone, inscribed at lengtli with the record of his valorous deeds, and some cyclopedias say ho is buried here, but that is a mistake. Detroit I'ree Press. Hnwniiin Houses. The houses of Honolulu are always open, day and night, as the temperature is so warm that ono has to sicep out of doors, as it were, to got enough fresh air. They are built mostly of wood, though many of tho oldest arid more substantial houses are built of coral stone, a fow of lava stone, and many may yet bo seen within tho limits of Honolulu made of grass and occupied by tho natives. These native huts or houses aro built by making a frame work of bamboo poles covered with lay ers of tho banana tree, the trunk of whioh can bo removed in layers. This again is covored with grass imtl trimmed on the corners and top by weaving the grass into different patterns. One opening or door usually admits enough light and air for the average native, though some huts are divided into sev-. eral rooms, with two and sometimes three doors. A mat hung down on the inside, covering the opening, is the common door. Mats made of broad grass interwoven or braided, and some times Hags form the carpets, and a pile of from two to ten, and sometimes even more, make the bed on which, the natives and invited guests sleep. , Furniture there is none, the natives ai ways sitting on the ground with their legs crossed beneath them. Their kitchen is outside, and is composed ot a heap of stones and ordinarily aa iron pot. Boston Transcript.
