Marionettes, says a sanguine inventor,
oansihave an inherent lifo of thoirown.
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.

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
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

with thoir loads, and - in their places,
tho negro caravan will, when marching

steamer, with its plating, is put togeth?

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?

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

Relief in the virtues of fresh air is car?
dinal among the occupants of the White
House, so that it was an inclement day
indeed which did not see the carriage
loaded with the little ones and the.ir '
nurses for on airing.
Shortly before the departure of Mar- I
thena Harrison for her far Western
home, Benjamin Harrison McKcc's i
birthday was celebrated with consider?
able ste.te. A dinner was served at j
which ho was host, and his sister.and
cousin guests. And w

for those little folks to tell their grand?
children, how they wore served by the
President of the United States himself,
and that no one enjoyed it more than he.
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?

his remarks.
Unlqno Musical Instrument Invented Oy a
Chicago Man.
Dr. Alva Owens, of Chicago, recently
constructed tho somewhat unique mil- I
sical instrument shown in the lllustrn- !
tion. Tho apparatus, which might be
described es n set of chimes to bo rung
by electricity, was designed tor adver?
tising purposes. The instrument, it is
intended, will be carried through the
ctreetsonan electric tricycle and will
be played on tho trip after the mnnncr
of un ordinary piano. The details and
operation of the device are so simple as

Colorori In the Orient.
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
