ANY of us can re
inember the curi
ous little glass cup
plates of our grand
mothers, on which
tho partly emptied
teacups were placed
to avoid soiling th
table-cloth while
the tea was cooling
In tho saucers: for
In olden times It
traa. .considered quit proper to drink
from tho Baucera. and the custom pre
vailed In all classes of society. Then,
at a later day. when the good housewife
began to look upon Baucer-drlnking as
bad form In table etiquette, we can re
call these same diminutive teacup
plates, both In glass and china, doing
duty as receptacles for preserves, but
ter and pickles. Fifty or Blxty years
ago rery well-stocked china closet or
glass cupboard could boast of a supply
of these utensils In a variety of designs
and colors. Pome were made of plain,
transparent glass, and others were
opalescent or milky, ribbed in concen
tric circles and ornamented on the rims
with floral designs, scroll work and
etars. " About the year 1840 the glass
manufacturers introduced a new stylo
of decoration, which met with much
favor, consisting of devices of a patriot
ic or historical character, and such pat
terns are now in great demand among
collectors and curiosity hunters.
During tho Clay and Harrison cam

designs and alleged portrait busts of
the presidential candidates were ex
ceedingly popular, and even now they
are occasionally met with at country
poles or in second-hand china shops.
To meet the increasing demand for
such wares the range of decorative sub
jects was extended to include historical
monuments, noted steamships and pub
lic buildings. The majority of these
designs camc doubtless, from Engand,
but It is probable, Judging from the in
timate knowledge of political and his
torical events which they indicate, that
some of them originated in this coun
try. Yet it is not an easy matter posi
tively to assign any of them to n par
ticular factory, since they seem to bear
no marks by which they can U. Iden
tified. I know that certain forms of
glassware with American devices were
made at the old Kensington Glass
works in Philadelphia, as I have seen
a pint flask or bottle with a relief head
of Washington, accompanied by the
names of Adams and Jefferson, and
bearing on the opposite side a design
of the American eagle, the name of the
Philadelphia manufactory, and the date
of the adoption of the declaration of
independence (net the date of produc
tion), July 4, A. D. 177G. Other exam
ples, bearing a head of Gn. Taylor and
patriotic emblems, which are quite
common, may be seen, nnd probably
were produced at the same place.
The first successful glass works of
any consequence in the United States
Mere established at Manheim, Lancas
ter county, Pa., by Daron Henry Wil
liam Stlegel, about the year 1771, and
several excellent examples of his work,
consisting of richly colored bowls and
goblets, possessing the clear, resonant
ring of the finest glassware of Bohemia,
are now owned by a well-known col
lector of that town.
Baron Stlegel came from Marhelm,
Germany, in 1750. and twelve years
later he laid out the Pennsylvania vll
liage which bears the same name. He
was also a prominent ironmaster, and
quaint little stoves of his manufacture
are still in existence. In 1772, at the
height of his prosperity, he deeded a
plot of ground to the Lutheran con
gregation, in consideration of the an
nual payment thereafter of one red
rose. It was demanded but twice dur
ing the Baron's lifetime, but recently
the custom has been revived by some of
his descendants. The celebration of
the Feast of Hoses in the month of
June is an event of great interest which
attracts widespread attention and
draws crowds of people from the sur
rounding country and neighboring
towns. In his palmiest days the Baron
lived in considerable pomp and rplcn-

of cannon. In 1771 he failed In busi
ness, and It Is eald that he was soon
afterward cast Into prison for debt.
The old Stlegel house, built of red and
black bricks, 13 still standing In tho
heart of the town, and some of the
hand-painted Dutch tiles from one of
the fireplace may be seen in the
rooma of the Pennsylvania Historical
society, Philadelphia.
Tha Whitney Qlasa workt of Glass
boro. N. J., were established In 1775.
and while we have no knowledge that
articles were made there with patrlotio
American designs, other than what
were known as Jenny Lind bottles, It
Is quite probable that such were among
the products of that factory.
As previously stated, glass cup plates
seem to have been most In favor about
1S40, some appearing earlier and others
a few years later, and therefore the
dates which are occasionally found on
them do not have reference to the
time of their production, but relate to
the subjects which they are Intended
to illustrate. One of these commemor
ates "Bunker Hill battlo, fought June
17 1775." in which engagement the
gallant Gen. Warren fell. The central
design Is an obelisk-shape J structure,
purely conventional, supposed to rep
resent the celebrated monument, which
Mas erected on the site of the battle
Just sixty-eight years afterward, the
corner stone having been laid on the
fiftieth anniversary of the event, eigh
teen years before, by Gen. Lafayette,
who, In 1S23, was making a tour of the
United States. At tho laying of the
corner Btoue in that year and at the
unveiling of the monument in IS 13,
Daniel Webster was the orator of the
day.
The Harrison campaign of 1S40 was
responsible for at least two similar
dtslgns In glass, one representing the
log cabin and hard cid?r device, the
other a portrait of Gen. William Henry
Harrison himself in uniform, and
among other conceits of the glass
makers was an ink bottle, or stand,
made in the form of a frontier dwell
ing, the birthplace of "Tippecanoe."
During or shortly after the political
campaign of 1S44 a Henry Clay sou
venir appeared in glass, bearing an al
leged portrait bust of tho American
statesman which, with greater proba
bility, might have served aa a likeness
of Julius Caesar: yet the name which
surrounded the profile was sufficient to
enable it to pass among the people as
a satisfactory representation of their
popular leader.
There was also a series of steamboat
designs, inscribed with tho names of
illustrious Americans. One of the rar
est of these shows a sldewhecl vessel,
flying the American colors, on the pad
dlebox of which appears a large F,
while from one of the masts floats a
flag carrying the initials B. F., nnd
above the design occurs the name
"Benjamin Franklin." in large letters.
The border of this plate has an effect
ive frosted appearance, produced by a
close setting cf tiny dots, raised on the
under side, forming a ground on which
are distributed patriotic emblems
stars, anchors, and the American eagle.
Belonging to the same set Is a "Chan
cellor Livingston" design with a simi
lar lace effect border wnich Is relieved
with decorative details, such aa scroll
work, hearts, stars, and the national
shield. In the center, in capital let
ters, the title is inscribed. Robert R.
Livingston was Chancellor of the State
of New York from 1777 .o 1801, and he
it was who administered the oath of
office to Gen. Washington when he was
inaugurated president in 17S3. Mr.
Livingston was one of the committee
of five which drafted tho declaration of
independence, and he was afterward
associated with Robert Fulton in hi
steamboat enterprises. Similar series
of designs were produced by English
potters In dark blue color, bearing tho
words "Tory Line," "Union Line," etc.
Thus it seems that not only In china,
but also in glass, va3 perpetuated tho
memory of many of the prominent
events of history. The producers of
pottery and glassware of half a century
and more ago introduced in their dec
orative treatment an instructive feat

Tha Story That Ammrd Emerson.
Ralph Waldo Emerson was once
greatly amused with the following an
ecdote: A lady, deeply veiled and
dressed in mourning, was riding in a
stage coach in Vermont, opposite to
whom sat a small, sharp-featured,
black-eyed woman, who began catechis
ing her thus: "Have you lost friends?"
"Yes, I have. "Was they near
friends?" "Yes, they was." "How
near?" "A husband and a brother."
"Where did they die?" "Down to Mo
bile." "What did they die with?"
"Yellow fever." "Was they long sick?"
"Not very." "Was they sea-farin
men?" "Yes, they was." "Did you
get their chlsts?" "Yes, t did." "Was
they hopefully pious?" "I hope and
trust they was." "Well, if you got
their chlsts, and ttey was hopefully
pious, you have great reason to te
thankful."
The stress laid on the "chlsts," and
the placing of their rescue before the
piety of the lost husband and brother
as reasons for thankfulness struck
Emerson as exceedingly characteristic
of a certain class of Yankees, and In
finitely mlrth-provoklng. The Golden

It is only fair, after so long a period
of swan-walsted creatures, with belts
pulled half way down over the natural
line of the hips, that "things should
take a turn." and the fetching little
round-walsted yes, Bliort-walsted
woman should have a show. Under
this new regime even the rlpplel
basques do not dismay her. They only
add emphasis to the shortness of the
waist and give a dash and chic to the
figure. And now that the Blceves am
less enormous, another item in her
favor, she looks anything but "dumpy."
The waist must always bo trimly
built and encircled with a well nttlnfj
belt, one that will ten! to lessen the
appearance of the natural size. Instead

to wear too light-colored a belt upon a
dark gown. A black belt is always the
more kind friend, to far as
compass goes. Light ones, however,
are comparatively safe when wora with
a light-colored gown. Then the coa
trast will not be so noticeable. The girl
with the wasp waist may wear the
white or gilt belt to her heart's satis

her, for 6he has grown awfully passe?

is a moderately short skirt, shirt waist,

of trim overgalters. A corset waist
should be worn, as, of course, the reg

(Boston Letter.)
1SS LANG, I want
you to tell me
something of how
composers work.
Do they, generally
speaking work
much at the piano,
depending upon im
provising, for In
stance, to Btumble
upon Borne grand
motllX?"
"I suppose the methods of com
posers vary as much as those of other
artists. I can only speak with certainty
of my own. Little songs and smaller
compositions generally take definite
and permancut shape in my mind be
fore I touch my pencil. In greater
works I often find it necensary to de
viate somewhat from my original Idea
when I come to the actual scoring.'
"I think very few composers work
at the piano, and ofton tho idea is
aa spontaneous as a smile or a sigh.. I
remember onco when McDowell was'
staying with us, he sullenly learned
that it was the anniversary of my
mother's wedding day. He immediate
ly turned to me and said: 'Let us play
them a triumphal march at dinner,'
and, seating himself at the desk, he
wrote out in about ten minutes a march
that had all the tire, color, balance nnd
poise of a work of art. We played It
at dinner to the great delight of th9
family."
"Do compositions BUfjest themselves
a rule, work quite independently of the
piano," said Mrs. Peach. "Of course,
In writing mutlc strictly for the piano,
one may try the effect of what one has
produced as he goes along. But la com
posing for orchestra, I never touch the
Instrument, as the result would only be
misleading, giving one, indeed, quite
a faleo Idea of values."
"I suppose, Mrs. Beach, before com
mitting your composition to paper, you
hear It as clearly and definitely with the
mind's car, as the artist sees his pic
ture before painting It."
"Absolutely every note of it. One
must have a skilled memory for the
values of the different instruments.
You know Wagner wrote the whole of
'Lohengrin without ever hearing a
note of It with his outer ear. It was
during his exile to a little Swiss vil
lage; and you can Imagine the heart
hunger of that great soul upon re
ceiving Liszt's enthusiastic letters of
Its productloa la Weimar. Every effort
was made to persuade the government
to allow Wagner to go to Weimar for
a single night, that he might hear his
work Just once, and then retura to
exile but all la vain. I get almost as
much pleasure from reading the or
chestral score of a great work as from
hearing It played. You doubtless
would prefer seeing Booth's 'Hamlet
to reading the play, but would vastly
prefer reading the play to peeing it
badly put on the stsgt. It is exactly
po with me la music. I would get the
came comparative pleasure from read
ing an orchestral score as you would
get from reading 'Hamlet."
"When you hear one of your works
played for the first time, does It offer
you any FurprlRes?"
MISS LANG,
as simple melodlej for you to fill In
the harmonies according to your knowl
edge of counterpoint and the rules of
harmony, and do they make their ap
pearance a phrase at a time?"
"Emphatically to. A melody, a
6lmple tune, never comes without Its
accompanying harmonies, nnd always
In more complete fcrm than by single
phrases. You know I was really very
old. compared with many, when 1 began
to compose. I must have been 11 or
12. I had never given much attention
to music except to playing tho violin.
I began to fiddle with some other girls,
and the idea came to mo to compose
some concerted music for our sppcl.il
use. I had never studied harmony at
all, so I turned my composition over to
my father, who walkel over the in
correct scoring with his blue pencil,
and It was decided that If I were going
to compose I must immediately begin
the study of harmony, counterpoint,
and, finally, of orchestration. It seems
to me that only a very mathematical
mind can enjoy studying harmony for
its own sake. It is very difficult, and
is interesting only as a means to an
end, as an aid to composition."
"In writing songs, 13 your aim to find
words for some melody you have in
mind, or do you compose the music to
voice some favorite poem?"
"Always the latter. Nevln told me
some years ago 1 do not know wheth
er hla methods may have changed
that it was his custom to commit a
poem to memory and carry it about in
his mind for days and weeks; that it
went with him everywhere, upon the
streets and Into the shops until it
was literally in his blood, then the
music came."
"Do you find it necessary to modify
or alter your works after hearing an
orchestra play their, for the first time?"
"I sometimes find that certain ef
fects overbalance the particular effect
for which I have striven; but I have an
absurd prejudice against worklug a
composition over which I have once
considered finished. 1 vastly prefer
writing something quite new, trying to
avoid the faults into which I may have
previously fallen. After the Boston
orchestra rehearsed my symphony for
the first time, the conductor requested
mo to make a considerable cut in one
of the movements. Very much against
my wishes I did sc. and after tho con
cert one of the first violins came to
me and eald: 'Oh, Miss Lang, why did
you make that cut? If you had a child
with one leg longer than the other,

Paris Letter.
Among the latest sensations in sensation-loving
Paris 13 the darlngballoon
trip recently made by Mme. Dn Cast, an
aristocratic member of the grando
monde worth millions in her own right.
Madam has long been a liberal contrib
utor to charitable funds of various
kinds. Therefore It is not cause for
surprise that the aerial Journey referred
to had for its principal object the benefit
of Parisian poor. The famous Capazza
parachute was some time ago given its
first trial in Tarls and was found to
work admirably. Then another ascen
sion was made with it in Brussels, with
equally satisfactory results. Mme. Du
Cast read of these events nnd was
struck with tho idea that if she wpre to
make an ascension with the aeronaut in
the French capital the public might be
induced to pay well for the privilege of
seeing ber start on the perilous Jour
ney. Signor Capazza, of course. Jumped
at the suggestion, and at tho snme time
assuring madam that there was abso
lutely no danger. Accordingly, public
announcement was made that on a cer
tain day Mme. Du Gast, tho society
leader, would accompany the aeronaut
on ote of his trips, the entire gate re

tions of the French colony. At the
hour appointed at least 2J.000 people
had assembled. Madam took her place

and in a few moments tho balloon, re
leased from its mtioiings, uhot up amid
the frantic plaudlt3 of delighted thou

reached. Then the aeronaut allowed
the gna to escape. Tho parachute

you would not try to remedy the de

cut may have been inadequate, your
balance may not have ben good, but it
was the best you had, and by the cut
you 6lmply deprived the movement of

exactly like taking off the child's foot
to make the legs of equal length. I
knew how true this was, and if I had
been a little stronger end perhaps a
little older, I should bave refused to
submit to the cutt'nc process, even If
it meant the withdrawing of the sym
