f Designs For Costumes That Have Do ll come Popular in tho Metropolis. ! Nkw Yohk City (Special). A.s time goes on it in made manifest that the power of the fancy theatre waist has not been lessened iu thesmallestdegree by our long familiarity with its charms, c THBATUE BODICB. nor will the shadow of the shirt waist diminish iu the least during the win ter. The former tried and true friend in every wardrobe is putting out some amendments on its previous condition. That is to nay, it is arriving in the shops made of satin or the very soft satin surfaced silks that have suf ficient body to stand faucif ul stitching. This ia pretty and commendable and the effect is very like the sketch of a bodice given here, the original of which wus of black peau de soie, hand painted in design of iris in the natural color of the flower. The collar is of shirred chiffon and a similar finish is at wrists. Scores of the silk and flannel shirts just out of tho workrooms show how they have shed their loose shirt sleeves and broad cuffs for dress waist sleeves and onffs that drop over the hand; it is easy, therefore, to hazard a prophecy in favor of this fashion that is going to rob our shirt waftts of one-half their simple charm. Mournlug Costninea, Contrary to what has hitherto been the custom, cloth is now considered a MODUNISO COSTUME. euituble textile for nion rning, of course, heavily trimmed with crepe, with which material the hem of the dress is invariably covered. Another favorite textile for mourning is "Cash mere de l'lndu," and again cheviot and "drognot." For half-mourning, all the new pas tel shades of bluish-grays which are now bo fashiounblo aro adopted. On these the trimming, though not neces sarily of crepe, must iu all casus be black, or black and white mingled. Capes, or the new long semi-litting garment, are more seen thun short jackets, whioh are considered some what too negligee. These garments are made this year of considerable length, reaching to within about twelve inohes of the foot of tho tkirt. Among furs, astrakhan, curaculo and Mongoliau-gont aro suitable, not as a trimming for the dress, but in the lb ape of capes or boas. "In l'uris no deep mourning attire is considered complete without the long crepe veil, starting from the back of the bonnet and reaching to the ex treme verge of tho skirt; but ouly during the first three months does it cover the face, after whioh period it is allowed to droop over the back of the dress, while a short square veil shields the faoe. A pretty new fashion for half-mourning for children's wear shows dresses of some heavy weave of white woolen textiles trimmed with narrow bands' of Muck crepe. In this case tho hat may also be of white feltor velvet, tiimmed as lightly as possible with crepe, but without either feathers or flowers. I The mauruiug ooslume shown in the large engraving is of black cloth, trimmed with festoons of crape. On the waist a bertha of crepe surrounds a tucked chemisette of the same mate rial. The long cloth coat shown is cut in vory narrow gores and piped with crepe. There are two rows of bluok crepe scallops, one on the front of the deep-shaped flounce, the other bead. FASHIONS. I ing it. The collur is also lined with crope. For Women nf Moderate Hni. Borne plain but smart-looking win ter costumes of cloth or choviot for women of moderate means who will use the suits for general wear during the entire season, are made with a beautifully shaped and fitted prin cesse back and a redingote front. The skirt beneath is of a matching or con trasting color, as is preferred. Some of these gowns have a fitted bodice front, triminod simply with braid or stitching and tailor buttons, and often there is a guimpe Russe inserted in the rounded opening about the neck. For slender figures, however, most of these new garmeuts are made with n trim-looking but seamless, dartlesi front, slightly drooped, and turned book ovor a vost of braided cloth, or with passonientorie simulating sou tache braiding or else a vest of plait ed silk framed with velvet revers that roaoh from the turn-down collar to the waist. The sleeves are close coat shapes, and most of the models show the skirt still made with a slight dip at the back. Style ol the New Toques, The new toques are considerably larger than former shapes. They are wider, and are therefore becoming to women with slender faces, when tho trimmings are not arranged too straight and ' high. Many of the French models are composed of ex quisitely shaded velvets; that is, there is not a single piece of shaded velvet nsed, but three separate weaves. For instance, one handsome toque is com posed of a beautiful trio of tint", shading from deep prelate purple to paleBt Parma violet. Another bas vel vet grading from dark jacqueminot red to rose pink, with three ostrich plumes matching three distinct shades, held by a triauglo-shaped buckle of French brilliants. A third model shows an artistic blending of moss, mignonette and stem green velvet, the hat being nearly covered with stunding and gracefully droopiug green plumes. Short Grlovot Worn, Our grandmothers thought them selves very smart in one-button gloves, and a few years ago six-button ones were very commonly worn, but the length of the sleeve of the moment has sent many buttoned gloves out of fashion, and throe and two buttons are the smartest thing to wear just now. Indeed, longer gloves than these are out of the question if we are to look at all in the fashion and to preserve our JUOUUNINO CI.OTH COAT. dainty cuffs in an immaculate condi tion.

Tli War Mail ! Carried llntween f.ake Hennett and llawann Mtat.lnnii Am Thirty Allien Apart Principal log Hint In Hloe anil Dried Balmnn. The Dominion Government has just closed a contract with the Canadian Development Company for carrying the mail between Lake Rennett, the present terminus of the White Pass Railroad, and Dawson. The service, which is to be weekly both ways, will be as picturesque and unique as was the old Pony Express across the plains. But instead of the brown desert for a pathway, this new route will lie along the icy bosom of the Yukon. The "malimute" dog will take the place of the cayuse. Captain Ilitchie, General Superintendent of the company that is undertaking the work, came out by the same steamer that brought the writer np from Daw son the other day, stopping off at every police station to arrange for the feeding and sheltering of the men and dogs until snob, time as tho company may be able to build stations of their own, writes Cy War man iu the New York Independent. The stations of the Northwest mounted police are thirty miles upnrt. It will take 160 dogs and forty men twenty drivers and twenty helpers and hostlers. Seventy tons of dog fodder and 200 tons of supplies for the men will be coached along the line before the river closes. There will be no delay no stops save for the changing of teams. The dogs will be changed at each station, but the men will make two stations without stopping. A man is expected to cover his run one way, sixty miles, inside of twenty-four hours. Here he will have from two to two and a half days' rest and then double back, making 120 miles iu a week. It is expected that this con stant nse of the trail will keep it open and in good shape. Each man and team will travel the same section of the trail constantly, aud so become familiar with i$ and be able to take every advantage to avoid delay. A mill-run of the statements made by the various prevaricators with whom I discussed the matter shows that tho average depth of snow between White Horse Rapids aud Dawson, 450 miles, is two feet. There is absolutely no wind no drifts so that wheu once the trail is beaten down it becomes a firm, smooth pathway, over whioh a good team of "Inside dogs" oau scam per with a mail sled at five miles an hour. A man went out over the ice last winter on a bi cycle in eight days, breaking the record. To be sure the dogs drawing the mails will be the swiftest and hardiest that money can secure. They will be carefully handled and fed, for each team and sled will represent a cost to the company of something like $.r0C. A single team ouce Bold for $2,500 at Dawson. The principal dog diet will be boiled rice aud dried sal mon. In case of illness or disability of the regular men there will always be a man available from the mounted police to take his place; so that it would seem an easy matter to give the coun try locally known as "The InBide," as good a service in winter as it has iu summer, when the company has three steamers a week each way. Last year, when those who had undertaken the work failed, the police took the mails and carried them through in good shape, saved the Dominion Govern ment some $50,000, and all without the faintest hope of reward, cave the meager salary allowed them. It would be a handsome thing for the Canadian Parliament to vote a few thousand for the benefit of those patient, faithful, silent guardians of the Klondike trail. The telegraph, which as I write is at Fort Selkirk, will be into Dawson by the end of October, so that Mr. Burdette, the mail superintendent, can handle the mail by wire, just as a train dispatcher handles the trains on a railway. It will be possible to know just where the mails are at any mo ment. The driver wilt register at each police station, and from these records the time of the men will be made up. When the river lias become safely and securely locked horses are to be tried on the trail, but not many mon in the Klondike believe in horses. They are harder to house and handle and feed. They must eat two or throe times a day and have a warm place to sleep. Not so with a native dog. Give him one "square" a day aud a cozy drift for a downy couch and he is nappy, liesules horses are expensive. A good horse is worth from three to five hundred dollars in Dawson. I asked a man for the hire of a horse to ride up to Milrooney's Forks, six teen miles, and he wauted $30. I explained that I only wanted the ani mal for one day. He understood, he said, and that would be the rent thirty dollars. In view of the faot that the Klondike cayuse hustles his own hay in the hills, this struck me as rather high rent. At the risk of having tho statement doubted, I want to say here that I saw horses iu Daw son that were said to have wintered on the creeks, pawing through two or three feet of snow for their fead, and they were iu excellent oondition for beginning another winter on tin Klondike. Not fur from this wood pilo there is a whole herd of horses that were shipwrecked and abandoned here a year ago. They are now romp iug over the heliotrope hills rejoicing that they are not compelled to work in a field here, where the summer sun shines twenty-two hours a duy. They are already half wild. From my stuteroom window I see a scow loaded with horses drifting down to Dawson. This is the third that we have seeu on its way up, and I am consoled by the thought that that highwayman may have to let his cayuse at ten dollars a ciay next year. Down the Dolton Trail, that touches the Yukon first at Five Fingers, we see a drove of 300 oows, also bound for Dawson, where milk is selling at $3 a gallon twenty-five cents for two swallows in a small glass. These cows have tramped all the way from Pyramid Harbor, feeding and fatten ing on the rich grass that grows here in the highlands of the Great North west. The man who owns them is a passenger on this boat, and that is Low I happen to know about the ' cows. I The only firearms carried by tbs messenger will be a six-shooter. With that' he will be expeoted to defend himself against the wild beasts of the trail, to protect the mails in his caro and to make it stand-off with any enterprising highwaymen who may nee fit to extend their operations to the Yukon. There have been very lew highway robberies in the North west aud very few murders. ' But all sort and conditions of men go to n gold country, and upon two or three occasions men have been found capable of killing thei.' companions. Of course, as the country settles up aud becomes "civilized," there will be more killing. Already they are be ginning to put locks on tho doors at Dawson, and to build their coaches iuside the cabins, Taken From the Neivaiiaport. One of the cleverest journalislia medleys ever published was printed in Loudon Fun, and afterward widely copied in the other English papers. It brings iu the names of most of tho Loudon periodicals quite ingeniously. In the early part of the Nineteenth Century of tho Christian Era a Citizen of the World strolled at night along Pall Mall on his way from Belgravia to Whitehall, accompanied only by the Echo of his footstops. An old Engineer and soldier of the Queen, he had traversed by Land and Water the greater part of the Globe and had, sinco his Broad Arrow days, fought under more than one Standard. Taking out his Tablet he-stood and wrote as follows: "The study of Pub lie Opinion offers a wide Field for the intelligent Spectator aud Examiner of the Times " At this moment a Watohman, who had been a close Observer of his movements, approaohed and said, "Come, my noble Sportsman, you must move on!" "And what if I refuse?" demanded the other, staudiug like a Bock, with his back nguinst a Post, immovable as Temple Bar. "To bo Brief with you, my friend, I shall in Truth stay here a Week if I think proper." "Well," rejoined the Civilian, "I am the appointed Guardian of this thoroughfare All the Year Bound, aud I protest against your making auy Sketch or Record here. Are you a Builder?" Instantly a giasp of Iron was laid on his arm. "Do you wish mo to Punch your head?" asked the Traveller. "Oh no," replied tho other, nil of a Quiver; "pray dou't; I was only iu Fun!" Hhoiild Coal (live Out? What then? Are we utterly ce pendent upon coal, so that the wheels of industry will stop aud the forests be consumed for fuel when coal gives out? Of course not. It is an idle fear. Already we have the begin nings 'of a new method of ntilizing natural energy whioh will prove euor luously more effective than coal ever has been, and will be practically inex haustible, to whatever extent industry may expaud. Electrical energy, developed by water power, will run the word's in dustries, furnish its light and heat, aud be the universal substitute for all forms of oombustion methods. Water power is praoticully unlimited, and it will be utilized more aud more in proportion as the need foi it arises aud as its use bo comes, at different places and at successive periods, cheaper than coal. The substitution will proceed gradually, until, when the coal supply finally is exhausted, nobody will have anything more thau a curious or academio interest in the matter, and probably not a ripple will be produced in the steady ouward flow of tho world's industry. As the use of water powor to develop electrical euergy in creases to the point of formidable com petition with coal, electrical students and inventors will doubtless briug out improvements making it possible tu store the power or conduct it long dis tances at small cost, nntilour factories, railroads, aud ships can be operated by it, our houses lighted and warmed and food prepared, all at even less ex pense than is possible to-day with eoul. Gunton's Magazine. He Wi Taken llom n Fear. You can always trust the American woman to take care of herself. The friends of a girl who lives in Eight eenth street are telling these days of an adventure whioh befell her one afternoon within the fortnight. She was stnndiug, this Eighteenth street girl, at the corner of F and Eleventh streets, waiting for a girl friend. A very dapper young man, a stranger, doubtless, iu tho town, for most Wash ingtoniuus are too well aware of the girl'ti social emiuence to .venture ou any impertinence to her, stepped up, bowed aud said, airily: "Waiting for somebody?" The girl turned to look at him. "Guess you'vo forgotten me," ho weut ou with growing familiarity. "I saw you at a dinner last week." The girl looked at him steadily for a moment. "Oh, I remember now," she said. "It was at Colonel Blank's. You are Colonel Blauk's butler, of course. No, I don't know of anybody who wants u bntler. Have you tried the employ ment agencies?" And theu, slowly and calmly, sho walked uway. Washington Post. Froaneroiia Kremth Feasant!. To get a correct idea of the French nation one must abandon Paris and get out among the people of the prov inces.

There is not a foot of waste land to be seeu. The first thing that strikes a stranger is the profu sion of fruit. Nowhere can be seen more luscious pears, peaches and grapes. Washington Post. A Feere' Boer Huiuumt. A Boer who lives at Wynberg, iu Cape Colony, is the husband of nu English peeress. He is Pieter Pie terse, who in 1802 laurried the widow of the eighth Earl of Stamford. This lady was a Miss Solomon, whose mother was an Afrioau native. She married the eighth Earl of Stamford (before bis accession to the title) an his third wife.

She had filled the kettlo from a cistern. Varicolored lilrd. The most variegated bird in the world has lately been discovered iu India and Ceylon. No less than nine different colors are distinguishable in its plumage. It is called the nine col ored pitta, and with its long legs, short tall and plump body it bears consid erable resemblance to a thrush. But its colors are gay and beautifully har monized. Its powerful long beak is curved on top and is generally held firmly closed. The foot is widely Bpread, the middle toe very long. The wings are short and well rounded. The bird is alight brown, with black stripes ou the upper part of its body. The head and sides of the neck are black, while a white line passes over the eyes, forming a kind of eyebrow, aud the throat aud part of the back nre also white. The other parts under the body are a yellowish brown, with a greenish tinge. The tail and under parts of the wings are a bluish green, while tho long wing feathers are a pale blue. The tips of the shoulders have spots of azure blue and the pinions are black. Their short wings do not permit any very extended flight, and their long legs show that much of their time is passed on the ground, where they feed on different kinds of beetles, which they crush iu their strong beak3. Shy and difficult to approach, they are genorally found iu the bush of the uplands singly except at breeding time and while tho brood is still young. The natives of Indin call this bird "Nouraug." Grew From a Wnr-Tlme N'nt. During the war of 1801-05 large quantities of a certaiu Japanese net were sont into Harrioburg, Penn. These nuts served as food for the horses quartered in the city at that time. The seeds were very hardy; wherever they foil they took root. One fell upon the broad, high wall sur rounding the County Jail; it sprouted, and sent down roots on the insido of the wall to the soil fifteen feet below. The tree grew aud flourished until this present fall, when it became necessary to tear down the wall in order to carry out certain improve ments. The casual observer, passing the old jail wall, supposed that the tree grew olose to the inner side ol the wall, not realizing at what a strange freak of nature he was gaziug. The tearing down of this wall has exposed to public view another of these odd trees. The Beed of thin fell upon one of the huge stones forming the foundation of the jail. The seed sprouted, sent its roots down into the ndjaoeut ground, and went on grow ing nutil it became a large, strong tree. Iu the process of growth its immense roots foroed apart many ol the foundation stones of the jail; iu faot, it has rendered the frout part of the building so insecure that it will probably be cut down.

The Tasnlnn For Claming la Fast Cor runtlng tli National Mr. In a certain sense the trial of a num ber of officers of the gaming clnb, Der Harmlosen, was of great interest to the student of pnblio events in Ger many. That this is no longer the pious, God-fearing, simple-minded Germany of yore, the land of thinkers, the country "of high thinking and low liviug," this trial strikingly proved. True, such men as were here arraigned or heard iu evidence are to be found in every large and luxurious town, and "sports" of more or less hardihood and recklessness may be met with as frequently in New York or Chicago as here. But there WGre several pecu liar features. One of them was the fuct that the members of the club aud those introduced by the latter be longed, with few exceptions, to tho circles of the highest German aris tocracy and of the army, and repre sented not exceptions, but types. Tho other was the fact that the morality, the tone, of these men was proven by themselves to be surprisingly low and debased. Proof was produced that they had not scrupled to despoil com rades and friends of thoir entire for tunes, driving them into ruin and suicide, and exacting these gambling debts pitilessly to the uttermost farth ing, under an unwritten but powerful law of their own making. One man they fleeced of $100,000 within a sin gle night, and then left him to a shameless death. There were many instances sworn to in court showing beyond auy donbt that the code of morals of theso young and middle-aged raeu, though by birth tho very flower of the nation, is worse than that of many a professional thief of low extraction. And another and perhaps even more startling feature of the case was that the court itself seemed to have no adequate realiza tion of the iniquity, but treated these high born offenders with a degree of consideration aud forbearance which it certniuly would not have shown to them if they had happened to be of plebeian birth. This demonstrated very glaringly that Prussian justice is no longer what it once was even handed and impartial. Altogether, the trial, which monopolized public attention for eoveral weeks, uncovered many undesirable conditions in Ger many, Several previous sensational trials of a similar character, such as the one in Hanover six years ago, are not yet forgotten, but this ouo is worse thau uny before. New York Post. Example of Dervlah Treachery, An incident of which Carl Nonfeldt was au eye witness' while he was a prisoner in the Soudan, is related by him in bis book describing his experi ences: "The day after tho battle of Kirbekan, an outpost was beiug sent forward. Moving to its position it eBpied a wounded dervish making signs for water. One of the soldiers slipped off bis camel to give him some, aud bis comrades moved on. As time went on, and their chum did not catch them up, they came back to see what had happened. There hn was still at tending to the wounded dervish, bis hand resting ou his shoulder, and there was no movement from either. Approaching this was the talo plainly written. The lines on the ground showed that 'Tommy' had taken tho wounded man iu his arms, nnd half supporting aud half dragging him, bad placed him iu a sitting posture in the shade, with his back against a rock; theu, taking his water bottle, he began pouring the life-giving drops down the throat of the dervish, for he still grasped the empty water bottle. With returning life came, of course, returning . strength strength suf ficient for the dervish to slip off his knife, poise his bund for a second of time behind 'Tommy's' back, while he was occupied with bis mission of mercy, nud then, pluuging it in with sufficient force to divide the spinal column, the dervish died happy as 'Tommy' fell dead across his shoulder. That dervish was glorified in the Soudan, nud thousands of others were awaiting tho opportunity of dying as gloriously." Cost or Living- lii Different Cities. An investigation into the compara tive cost of living ot the different Eu ropean capitals resulted iu tho follow ing facts: At Vienna tho prices of most arti cles of food ure lowest; at Madrid they are dearer than iu auy other cap ital, and such things as bread, moat, sugar and coal are very expousive iu deed. At St. Petersburg, also, tho price of bread is still considered a luxury above the means of the work ing olusses. Next to Vienna, Brus sels is au inexpensive city; Paris is a little higher in tho scale, while Lon don is still more expensive. An American spends on au average fj!50 a year for food, a Frenchman $18, a German $15, a Spaniard $33, an Ital ian $24, aud a Russian $10. Of moat tho American eats 101) pounds a year, tho Frenchman 87 pounds, the Ger man 01 pounds, the Italian 28 pounds aud the Russian 61 pounds. Of bread the American rousumes 380 pounds, the Frenohman 540 pounds, the Span iard 480 pounds, tho Italian 400 pounds, and tho Bussiau 055 pounds. Outside of Europe, iu times of peace, Munila is cheaper to live iu thau any other city m tho world. Dungnioui Pleasantry. A citizen of Boston who attempted a littlo pleasantry whilo the Dewey function was going on in the streets of Boston, received a Buddeu eye opener as to tho danger of a too freo use of irony, or sarcasm, or even of perpetrating au innocent littlo joko in mixed oompany.
