The olown, the- Columbine and all tho figures representing animals will now (Oaper about on their own hook. I "Worn-out visiting cards, matoh-stlok*, jtfooso are very simple materials with TvbJah people who aro fond of a little Wionsenso now and then can fashion all , ftho figures represented by these designs, ? ?whlob can at. any time bo sot in motion i Oiko mechanical toys. Take, for instance, a clown. First ?draw and paint the figuro on the back I jof a card?the body and head first, then 1 'the two logs and arms; carefully out out }theso Ovo pieces, placo tho body on a ; .table and above it the legs and arms in a position ol rest. Now these limbs most bo joined, and this is how it is to bo done. Take, for instance, an arm, mark with a pencil at ,the Ghoulder end of tho arm the exact epot forming tlioaxis of rotation; piorco a holo with a pin at this point and put it through the shoulder in the body, llend a match stiel: at tho Renter as much as possible without breaking and drop a littlo melted sealing wax, join? ing tho two ligaments to tho arm ami ihody respectively, making tho part (forming tho joint bo in contact With tho [pin. Do the sarao for tho othor limbs, jromovo the four pins and tho figure is 'complete. Now we have to give it life, j All that has to be dono for tbis is to (place the sido of the figuro on which laro tho matches in a plato containing a (thin layer, bo to say, of water. Thobont .fibers of wood which have not boon (broken will swell by moans of tho niois Ituro absorbed and will try to regain [their rectilineal position. The figure I jrwill thon make a series of abrupt, move SDents, which aro very amusing. Tho j ega and arms will raovo apart :us thoar ! do which aro movod by a string. Bo caraful to use only large, common matob-Stioks. Tho Swedish ones aro imprognati d with paraQlno and would not move as required. At last wo have found a use for homo made matches. Each one can perfect tho mode of fash? ioning these figures as ho likes best. lA ballet girl who can lift her foot to her Iforebeud, a rooster which can move its jlegs about aro pretty easy to make. A iborno with Iwolve different joints is a "bit too difile.uIt, for an amateur. For tho [horse each leg is composed of three dif? ferent pori ions. Instead of placing tho figuro on a plate we can put a dropoT water on each joint with the finger or with a paint ibrush, and tho offeot will be tho same. Tho winter ovenings are coming which eauso young and old to assemble around the family table. Tho lime seems favor? able, says tho Now York Herald, to ?recommend to our readers theso now dancing marionottos. A Lover's Ab* I mot inn. That, (.bo groom of one of last week's tfeddinga was so doc ply enamored of hin fair bride as to foreshadow the future happiness of tho couple is, perhaps, augured by a littlo incident, which, ac? cording to the Now York Times, ho does not mind telling himself, (t was in tho oarly days of their acquaintance, and ho was about mailing his first no to to her. Although the missivo was a comparatively unimportant one, relating to some intended courtesy, its writing had been mingled with much absorbing thought of wliab futnro notes to her might breathe, and he walked down tho Street to mail it, pulling some very pleasant pictures from Iiis meerschaum. At the box, still absorbed, bo dropped, as ho thought, the letter into tho recept? acle and retraced his stops to his apart? ments. As the door was reached bo ?found tho noto still in his hand. What, then, had he put into the box? Ills pipe, of course, and there he found it a few minutes later, bowl out, the long atom <lecp among Undo Sam's mail. NeunrhadiiexKar's Iloor-Stnp.

FOR VICTORIA NYANZA. M trainers That Ara Now He ng: ltul:t fcr Uno In Darkest Africa. Think of building In a Glasgow ship yard a steamer which must lie- taken to pieces again befoio 5,000 Africans can carry her over r>no miles of wild African ,o o u n t r y and ?,f float-her on the 'inland sea of Victoria Nyanzal The New York [World's Glasgow _/jcorresp o n d o n t saw this vessel on the stocks, and obtained a rough sketch of UNION JACK AND SON her. She is tho first of a Urltish fleet which Messrs. A. & J. Inglis have contracted to build for tho British East Africa Company's serv? ice 'lhis necessity for building tho vessel so as to allow of taking her to pieces again for overland porterage, makes her progress very slow. After she is launched and littcd, all the work which is now handled with so much care must bo uudono. Before thisship reach? es her destination she must bo carried through miles and miles of African for? ests and jungles between tho coast- and tho big lake. It is estimated that 5,000 darkies will he required for this work, with at least 2,000 more as relay stalT to replace tho sick, the runaways and the unmanageable. Tho now vessel is commissioned by the Imperial British Mast Africa Com pany, of which Sir William Mackinnon is president. Tho company will float its own flag, issue its own postage stamps and coin its own currency. Tho first steamer of tho fleet is about 120 tons, builders' measurement. Sho is stoutly built of steel plates bolted with steel bolts on steel frames. Tho TDK STEAM RR. bolts will be of course only riveted In their proper Indes when the Steamer ar? rives on the shores of the lake. Each plate, like every other part of the steamer, is limited in size to a load which a negro could cany conveniently on his head, and it is calculated that with thoir loads, and - in their places, tho negro caravan will, when marching In Bio, extend over three miles. The steamer, with its plating, is put togeth? er with bolts and nuts to bo removed when tho parts are taken to pieces and packed aboard tho railway cars which will carry tho steamer In piecemeal to tho docks at London, whom it will bo shipped on hoard tho London and Zan? zibar direct steamer. Though constructed for purposes of peace this vessel will bo armed for rough fltrhting if it is necessary. She will carry an armament of t>\o .Maxim machine guns, besides small arms and a boso specially fitted to throw boiling water from tho boiler among warlike natives. The iron plating of tho ves? sel is, of courso. proof against rifle or musket balls. On each bow will ho lit ted up an iron rillo and conning lower. Tho engines will drive her at a speed of ton knots, and with handsome and easy lines fore-and-aft tho steamer .should bo easily driven. Her length over all i>. SO feet, with 10 feet beam. Tanned canvas sails will be sent with the steamer. IN CUPID'S CHAINS. Linking Urlilemaltl* Together with Chain* ,.f Flowers. rOnoof tho prettiest novelties at En? glish bridals, according to the Ladies' Homo Journal, is that of linking the bridemaids together with chains of flowers attached to floral handcuffs. Usually there are six maids besides tho maid of honor. They walk two by two, thoso on the right side of the aisle having the chains depending from their left wrists, tho maids on the left sido having their right wrists connected. Tho chains ara long enough to curve gracofully from wrist to wrist. Tho \ M j( ? ,11, if 11 1 I I ' wwm Si a ID i Vi'iO S OHA i \S. nttsldo hand of each maid Is free to hold her bouquet, posy or basket of blossoms, and, linking tho wrists that aro on tho inside going up the aisle, brings the maids in tho right, order ns they form quarter circles, o:io on each side, at tho chancel. After the ceremony, In tho twinkling of an oyo tho maid nearest tho bride on each side slips olf her handcuff, passes it to the second maid, takes tho arm of "her" usher and falls Into line. Maid number two follows suit, and tho two who arc ! .. ttol ?avothu church car ry tin tlbaini and loop^j on their aisongagcd urm. THE M'KEE CHILDREN.

No <'iie has such inlluenco over the little fellow as grandpa, nnd to one else docs he go in his little dis? tresses ami lied readier solace. Mary Lodge McKee, who is Uonjnmin Harri? son's junior by a year ami a half, is more retiring in disposition than her better known brother, but as slicgrovrs in years her winsomo graces will make hern formidable rival for first placo in the annals of the paragrupher. The lie.'..ies at the White House doubt? less enjoy lifo with a vim that other less fortunate ones do not experience. They have nil the sweets and none of the bitter of public life. They sec only its joys and glitter, und these are very attractive. They are pelted by visitors win'la they are occasionally permitted to : v. nud the frequent performances of the Marino band on (he grounds nud in the Executive mansion fill them with delight. During last winter, the MclCecs had their cousin Marthcun, Mr. Russell Har? rison's beautiful flaxen-haired daugh? ter, for a play? mate, and sbo will be w f t h them again dur? ing the present season.

The President's grandson regards bis ancestor as bis own personal property, and enforces his claim-, under conditions that are sometimes somewhat embar? rassing. On one occasion the President, while standing on the deck of the Des? patch, began uddrcssing a crowd of peo? ple in the navy yard, at Washington. ,lnst as he began, "Raby McKcc," think? ing he was being neglected, set up a howl, which be wouldRtill nowhere savo in grandpa's arms; so, holding the child close to bis breast, he concluded his remarks.

AU tho gold (lsh In this country, says tho Washington Star, originally caino from Japan and China, whore tho business of breeding them has boon carried on for no ono knows how many hundreds of years. You will bo surprised to loam, perhaps, that their hrilliant colors are obtained altogether by artifice. Naturo unassisted never produced a gold fish?that ij to say, the paint was lacking. The creature at tho beginning Is of a somber, yellowish bronze hue. Take a pair, breed from them, and onco in awhile will occur a freak that will exhibit more or less color. Mate two Buch freaks and you will obtain progeny with more decided tints. Out of this last generation tako a pair that show the most color, proceed? ing cautiously in this way, and, eventu? ally, with Bllflloiont care cud patience, you will produce a golden fish. This is preeisely the way in which tho ingenious Orientals produced gold fish. Now and then a while freak would be found, which was simply an albino, and this they crossed with a golden, so as to make a brindled white and gold, snch as ono very commonly sees. Funnily enough, by tho way. this B??rt of carp, in tho process of turning to golden, becomes black first.. Hut the breeders of tho Fast have accomplished nil sorts * * things with gold t!sh beyond this. They have caused them to develop ' astonishingly exaggerated lins, and tails twice as big as their bod lea. Most remarkable of nil, they havo obtained strains of gold fish,specimens of which are now on view in aquaria at tho com ml .?-.ion's building, with two separate tails, each of lingo r.i::o, and two pairs of anal fins. Anatomically speaking, this is precisely us if a man or any other mammal were to bo so bred as to bo provided with four logs and four arms, and persons export in biolog? ical science are touch Interested in dis? cussing tho question whether an olght lcgged beast Is hot a possibility oft future development. What might not man achieve, if ho wero a quadruped and had two pairs of arms besides? Such an extra equipment of limbs would bo in his way presumably/, if one is to judge from observation of the gold fish referred to. They are rendered very beautiful by their great spread of deli? cately shaded lias, but tlicysocm to llud them cumbersome and have to Icoop con? tinually wriggling along to prevent their great tails from weighing them down at tho rear end and causing thotn to assume a perpendicular attitude. One of thb freaks in the commission's aquaria is white, with Uns of an ex? quisite light yellow, and Its body is so transparent that you can see its red blood sind tho very food insido its stomach.
