Flounco* aqjl wfffles are becoming
more and mor it fashionable all the
time, and just how to arrange for
them on a gown which should hav*

maker. The skirt should first be most
carefully fitted and made, and then
the flounces should be put on in such
* way (if the wearer of the gown be
tftll) as t0 make them encircle the
skirt at thq same distance from one
another. If the wearer be short and
stout and wishes to be thought tall
and slender, then the flounces must be
arranged so as to be higher either in
front or at the back—whichever is
more becoming. The flounce? may be
of the same material as the gown,
edged with lace and trimmed with
rows of tucks and lace insertions, or
they may be made entirely of lace.

Letters Lonfton Way
"Speaking of the curious routes let
ters sometimes take in reaching their
destination," said an old newspaper
man, in the New Orleans Times-Demo
crat, "reminds me of an extraordinary
experience I had in 1901, when I re
ceived two letters which had been
mailed to me in 1888, thirteen years
before. I had been with a friend in
Washington up to early in 1888, when
I concluded that I would go to my old
home in Boston. I remained in Bos
ton a few days, going from there to
New York. My movements were »o
sudden that he did not at any time
know exactly where to find me. The
two letters to which I have referred
were sent to my Washington address,
and, fortunately, fell into the hands
of my friend. Not knowing exactly
where I was after hearing that I had
left Boston, he did not know where to
send the letters, so he just kept them,
thinking that he would finally learn
my address and would send them on
to me. While loafing around in New
York I was suddenly seized with *
desire to go to Europe and, without
saying anything to anyone about my
intentions, I boarded a ship and start
ed for foreign lands.
"For nearly four years I was
abroad and during that time, while
communicating with relatives and
friends on this side I never wrote to
my friend whom I had left in Wash
ington, for I did not know his ad
No Human Life There
The coast of Labrador is the edge
of a vast solitude of rocky hills, split
and blasted by the frosts and beaten
by the waves or the Atlantic for un
known ages. A grand headland, yel
low, brown and black in Its nakedness,
Is ever in sight, one to the north
of you and one to the south. Here
and there upon them are strips and
patches of pale green mosses, lean
grasses and dwarf shrubbery. There
are no forests except in Hamilton
inlet. Occasionally miles of precipices
front the sea in which fancy may
roughly shape all the structures of
human art.
More frequent than headlands and
perpendicular sea fronts are the sea
slopes, often bald and tame, and then
the perfection of all that is pictur
esque and rough. In the Interior the
blue hills and stony vales that wind
up from among them from the sea
have a summerlike and pleasant air.
One finds himself peopling these re
gions and dotting their hills, valleys
and wild shores with human habita
tions, but a second thought, and a
mournful one it is, tells that no men
toil In the fields away there, no worn
Romance of a Farm
A romantic story, one in which a
number of stirring incidents are relat
ed, is told of a little farmhouse and
forty-seven acres of land that within
the last week have been turned over
to a great church organization for an
The property Is located on the main
line of the Northwestern road, about
two hours out from Chicago, and ad
joins the little village of Nachusa. The
land was handed down from genera
tion to generation by a family of the
name of Dysart. By a member of this
family It was originally taken up from
the government, and remained In the
family until it fell into the possession
of Col. Alexander Dysart, who for
years was one of the best known citi
zens of this section. He was a man
of some eccentricities, but beloved by
the whole community. He raised a
family of sons, three of whom became
engineers on the Northwestern road
and are now running trains. The colo
nel, during his lifetime, improved the
old home, which in early years was
but a cabin, until it assumed the pro
portions of a fine country home. He
Ways of the Mosquito
That adult mosquitoes live tnrough
the winter is evident to all who have
seen and felt them on the first warm
days of early spring, says a writer In
the Literary Digest. Now we are told
In addition that larvae and even the
egg of the Insect may survive great
'cold. Says a writer in the Revue
"It is well known that mosquitoes
hibernate in the adult state; a certain
number of these vexatious insects
pass the winter in various retreats—
in slaughter houses, granaries, cellars,
etc., and in the spring they resume
active life and multiply their kind.
Hibernation, however, does not always
take place in the adult form only;
the larvae can also pass the winter
with safety. This has been shown by
the observations of John B. Smith
made during the winter of 1901-1902
and at the end of 1902. The winter
cold does not regularly destroy

" 'By the way,' he said, when we
first met, 'I have a couple of letters
for you which 1 have kept for thir
teen years, since shortly after we sep

gave me the letters. They were yel

from two very dear friends and I
asked my friend what had become of
the boys, telling him whom the letters
were from. 'They are both dead,' he
said, 'and have been dead for a num
ber of years.' I suppose those two
boys died thinking just a little un
kindly of me because of failure to an

know the letters had not reached me.

of the man who had kept the letters
all these years for me."

The Finsen Light Cure.
United States Consul Frazier of
Copenhagen, Denmark, reports that in
the Finsen Medical Light institute,
now a state sanitarium, 1,367 cases
had been treated up to May, 1903, by
the Finsen rays. Of these most were
lupus vulgaris, and in about 1,000
cases the best results had been attain
ed, so that "in most cases one may
count definitely upon a cure," to use
the official language. The doctors at
the Institute are extremely conserv*
tive and never promise to effect a
cure; but the records show that in a
majority of the cases where sufferer*
have been encouraged by being ad
mitted as patients cures have been
effected. In the one case of the
American patients where the physi
cians have not yet determined wheth
er they can give relief, it appears the
patient is suffering from a rather
deep-seated cancer, but^ the Finsen
rays dp not cure any but the most
superficial cancers^
Protects Froi.j, Gases.
One of the greatest dangers with
which the coal miner has to contend
is the generation of deadly gas in
the chamber In which he is at work.
His lantern is so made as to guard
against an explosion of this gas and
even to Indicate its proportion in the
atmosphere, but the miner himself
does not take the same precaution
to prevent Inhalation of the gas, re
lying on his ability to run out of dan
ger. Often he is overcome in his
flight and then the companions who

have escaped return to search for
him and carry him to safety before It
Is too late to resuscitate him. This
work is hampered by the presence of
the deadly gas In the mine and often
a man's fellows not only fall In his
rescue, but lose their own lives.
There has recently been introduced
an apparatus which makes it possible
for a man to go safely through a mine
charged with deadly gas and come out
without feeling any effects of the
fumes. As here pictured, it consists
of an air-tight hood to fit over the
wearer's head and shoulders, with a
compressed air chamber and auto
matic feeding arrangement attached to
the hood. The air for breathing Is dis
charged gradually into the hood to re
place the air which has been breathed.
The wearer of this apparatus can
spend several hours, If necessary, in
the presence of gas which would kill
a man In a few minutes were It par*
netted to enter his lungs. The in
ventlon may also be utilized to enter
smoke-filled , rooms, affording protec
tion to both the lungs and the eyos.
Exposure-Timing Device.
To the professional photographer
or amateur, who 1 b constantly at work
on his apparatus, making several ex
posures every day, it Is a simple mat
ter to take account of the amount of
light which is available for affecting
the sensitive plate and gauge the time
of the exposure properly without tfaa
aid of any scale or a watch. But for
those who use the camera Infrequent
ly and are liable to change the brand
of plates froe time to time the scale
ts almost a necessity. Then, after
the proper amount of exposure has
been ascertained, he must guess at
the length of the fraction of a second
called for, a very difficult thing to
do without having previously studied
It out by practice.
Now, however, there is no necessity
for experimenting and guessing when
each picture is taken, the operation
having been narrowed down to me
chanical operation by the Introduc
tion .of a camera attachment. This
timing device Is operated In conjunc
tion with the shutter-working buttons,
being so connected that the act of
opening the shutter sets K in motion
and causes it to act on the closing
button at the proper Instant. This
timer can be regulated to operate at
any fraction of a second or any num
ber of seconds desired, the operator
having only to set it by the gauge just
before making the exposure.
William E. Mulholland of Juneau,
Alaska, is the patentee of this device.
Looking to the Future.
Among the large railroad systems to
recognize the Importance of tree plant
ing in order to guarantee a supply of
ties for the future is the Illinois Cen
tral. At a point near Duquoln, 111.,
200,000 catalpa trees were planted
three years ago. These trees are
thriving and in a few years, when the
thinning-out process begins, manv of
the ties in the Illinois Central rail
road will be cut from this forest cre
