The Far Trade Dali.
The furriers and dealers in heavy
clothing are in a bad plight. Last season
was very poor for their lines of business
because of the mild weather, this sea
son it has been worse, if anything. Said
the junior member of the leading New
York retail clothing firm- "We have
sold less than one-half the number of
overcoats and heavy suits this season
that we did two years ago, and the con
sequences almost foot up a disaster. Last
year was bad, and we had an immense
stock of overcoats to put away in the
spring, but we had hopes of improvement
this year. You see how it has been—
not two days of overcoat weather as yet.
And then there have been so many
heavy wholesale failures in the trade,
with the inevitable 'mark-down' that
follows, that legitimate business lias been
seriously damaged. Yes, the overcoat
we marked $40 on the 10th of October we
will be glad to sell now for $25—about
actual cost." In the fur trade the situa
tion is folly as unsatisfactory. Dressed
sealskin advanced in price early in the
season, but manufactured goods went the
other way. The elegant $300 sacque of
two years ago can be had now for $350,
and the less costly goods in almost pro
portionate reduction. As a matter of
fact, however, it may he in other cities,

such rapid progress that it was immedi

which might be made, the whole block
of the three buildings was doomed to he

scene, therefore turned their attention to
saving the furniture in the residence of
Mr. Matheson and succeeded in rescuing
the greater part of it from destnicton.

After Fisk was killed and Stokes was

should I encounter but Josie, hanging on
the arm of her husband. He was a
Stout, portly man, much the build of
Fisk, and looked to me like a Bussian
rather than a Frenchman. Josie was
elegantly and most richly dressed, but

thinner, and had lost the flesh that for
a while made her look gross and sensual,
and was radiantly beautiful. Her hns

We have to thank the Chronicle for

excellent method of advertising a town.

While Mr. Townsend was in Washing

which has become so widely known. He
gives the following account of the man
ner in which he developed the name:
"Applications for my letters came pour
ing in from all sides. I was writing for
the Cleveland Leader over my initials,
for the Cincinnatti Commercial over the
name Swede, and for the St. Louis Dem
ocrat over the name Finn, and was using
my initials Itesides in the New York
7'riljune and a Philadelphia paper. Sud
denly the Chicago Tribune applied, too; I
put down G. A.T., and then balanced my
pen and said: "I am tired of writing
that;" so I tried to make some monogram
of it, and the only consonant that would
make a syllable with it was II, which I
added. "Hello," said I. "that is a Phil
istine city. "Hello, again," said I, "It is
written in the Scriptures, "Tell it not in
Gath" (that^Goliath lias fallen). So I
wrote Gath below the letter. Soon after
that Mr. Horace White bought my whole
correspondence up at a salary, and Gath
became my only known signature for
years; so that I found last winter, when
I went lecturing, that I had written my
own name out of existence, like a mar
ried woman, and was merely Mr. Gath.

Photographing the Dead.
A photographer unbosoms himself last
week to a Times reporter on the subject
of posthumous photography: "When I
first came to Chicago," said he," business
was dull, and 1 got poor. One day, when
pushed to my wits' ends for money, I
was struck with an idea which I have
followed out successfully ever since. The
death columns of the daily newspapers
were carefully gone over, and wjten the
funeral was advertised from an humble
neighborhood I was usuatly sure of a $5
bill. I visited the houses and offered to
photograph their dead. Out of a dozen
visits I would probably get one job. In
a couple of years my reputation grew,
and finally I came to be almost as fre
quently sent for as the minister. Only
last June a messenger eante in from a
South Chicago family, desiring me to
photograph their dying father. When I
got there he was too far gone, and I had
to wait. Half an hour after the old gen
tleman breatljpd his last, and before he !
became stiff we had him sitting in a chair,
with his eyes held open with stiff muci
lage between the lids and the brow, and
his legs crossed. He made a very good
picture. I once photographed two
children—6isters—who had died the
same day of diphtheria. They were
posed with their arms about each other's
necks. An Irish family living in Bridge
port called on me about a year ago to
take a picture of their dead son—a
young man—with his high beaver hat
on. It was necessary to take the stiffened
corpse out of the iee-box and proji it
against the wall. The effect was ghastly,
but the family were delighted, and
thought the hat lent a life-like apppear
ance to the picture. Sometimes, at the
suggestion of the family, I have filled out
the emaciated cheeks of dead people
with cotton to make them look plump.
The eyes are nearly always propped open
with pins or niucjfotfê^K when [icople
can afford to cngageK^Ht it is an easv
matter to paint the eyeWmerward. Some
time ago I took a picture of a dead man
who had been scalded to death. It was
a full length photograph, and an artist
was engaged to fill out the burns on his
face and then make a copy in oil. For
that piece of work I received $50, and
the artist was paid $500.

During the month of October, a man

ported to be an inspectors commission
and being well posted in postoiiico affairs
to swindle various postmasters and banks
out of sums of money, and seemed to
have things ids own way. Hearing of
the anticipated arrival in Helena of in
spectors Sevbolt and Baiinerman, the
pretended Henderson left between two
days. Since the officers of the post office
department have been anxious fr secure
his arrest. On Friday last, when pass
ing through Missoula on his way met
from Portland, assistant general superin
tendent Jameson, spotted a man in tiie
railroad telegraph office, who answered
the description as given to him by in
spector Stuart, as he came through Chi

son informed deputy T'nited States mar
shal Hathaway of his discovery. Hatha
way, who was acquainted with the bogus
inspector proceeded to Missoula and ar
