• m IN m'm WOMAN'S WORLD. One of th most important items on the flopping list just now is the selection of |Bn. writes "A Parisie.nue to the “Lou don Telegraph.” Unlike the best dress makers and milliners of the French cap ital. whose windows are a blank so far as any outward display of their models is concerned, jewellers and furriers make a lavish show of their wares in their win- j dews, so that she who runs may read therein the tale of the latest, fashions : and ponder thereon as to the best choice before finally settling on a selection. Those who know the fur emporiums of Paris know also what riches are con- i tained therein, and nowhere in the world 1 can such furs be seen as in the carriages j and motors which throng the Bois in the afternoon. Yet London is the mart from which the buyers select most of their skins, and Paris is merely responsible for their fashioning. Thus it is from the gay city that the present fashion for petit gris comes—a fashion which is being universally followed by high and low. One may be pardoned for doubting if petit gris will have any real, lasting popularity. It is a novelty, and as a novelty it has caught on: but its in trinsic value, of course, is little beside such furs as sable. But, like everything else, petit gris, being In' demand, is rap idly rising in price, and who knows if it may not eventually take : place among the higher-priced pelts? Specially treat sed. it is really very pretty, not unlike chinchilla, but with the advantage of be ing very much lighter. An idea wnicn anew tavor is iue ic versible stole, up’i as petit fns on one side, shaped like a deop cape over the ehomders, with long stole ends in front; on the other side eruaine or sable, which reversed forms a storm collar around the throat. The long ends then cross over at the waist, a piece of conjuring which makes two boas out of oue. each of a different fur and shape—an idea which deserves to be applauded for its economi es! ingenuity. The little brown heads of the squirrel are used for linings of coats and wraps, now that squirrel back is promoted to more decorative uses. They are also used as a foundation for some of the embroideries and guipure to form revers and collars to coats and dresses. Cara cul is another skin which is immensely used for this purpose, tv> show off fine embroideries, but it is also employed for boleros, saeque coats and trimmings for ( dresses, and looks well, and looks partic- j ularly well embroidered with black ■ chenille lightened with gold. All the better class pelerines and j muffs are minus the questionable -adorn- j meut of heads and tails, which had he- ■ come more marked year by year. Most of these heads had little or no acquaint ance with the skins to which they were supposed to belong, and therefore had no raison d’etre. Muffs are long and flat, of the true grannie shape, and accord wel! with the deep shaped fur flounces .which are a la mode for the bottom of pelisses and skirts, and the gauntlet cuffs, which finish the sleeves. Moleskin is another pelt which is being so boomed that we shall probably weary of it before long, but, though very suitable for a mo tor coat, or to make a neat little bolero, its reputation may be said to exceed its merits Moreover, it is somewhat ex travagant, owing to the number of skins required to make the large coat. Seal skin, after being in the background for some time, is again brought forward this year. One of the newest furs in Paris is vision, or musquash; its glossy sheen and depth of surface make it most orna mental, nor is it too expensive. Sable, of course, holds its head higher than other furs, but its price renders it pro hibitive for mose people. A knitting bag which way be held on the arm while at work and serve as a convenient receptacle for the ball of worsted, is made of red satin. The pat terns calls for two sections of the satin each having a lining. Cut each section in shape like a large pear, with a long neck.

It is of rich peau de cygue, with a back of rubber so light of weight as to be not at all disagreeable. It is called the Armenonville. and has very recently been added to the tremen dous stock of one great store. It is chief ly surprising because it is not full length, and also interesting in that it gives us a look at a Frenchman’s idea of a rain coat. There’s no flapping about the heels and, indeed, it is designed, no doubt, for cariagf wear, because in Paris everybody takes a cab everywhere. Therefore, this loose and roomy affair is more than am ple for all requirements, and will not rumple the daintiest toilet. In castor or fawn, it is exquisitely rich—really a silk coat—as it is in "bream, grfay, crimson trud black. «r * * Gloves in tasteful boxes containing three to six pairs are always acceptable, but an agreeable alternative this season will be long mittens. These bid fare to be worn much for parties and the thea tre, and a prettily decorated satehet with three pairs each of black and Bream in silk open work will be an even greater novelty. The price of course, depends upon the length and fineness of weaving, but desirable examples begin as low as $1 a pair. Easily lost trifles—those with heads of rhino stones, pink coral, baroque pearls and amethysts, are very handsome and can be bought for $1, $2 and $3. Points of all .sizes are to be used in skirt decoration. These are seen in lace, as garniture, and again as a finish to the skirt itself—in some eases a half-yard in depth. Front beneath these points float fluffy flounces of accordion plaited chiffon frills of Chantilly and Cluay lace or of some soft net goods. Entire dresses of point applique are made with two deep flounces effectively finished with Bruges edging. -More gorgeous effects are seen in em hroidery with chenille and ribbon upon gowns of Crepe do chine and Chantilly la-se. Designs in flowers and fruits are wrought in colors, the flowers being stud ded with rhinestones. * * * In the “opening’’ displays of the new fall silks are all the popular weaves, in cluding plain moires (which are again fashionable), faconnes, plaids, satin lumineux. crepe de cljiue and glace taffe tas; and. while it is not a novelty, there is an attractiveness in the increased rich ness of the floral designs and dainty col orings in these silks, both for afternoon and evening wear. * * * N If a child scalds its mouth badly by drinking tea or coffee too hot. ice is til? cure. The child must be given small pieces of ice to suck as long as the pain lasts. Of course, if the injury is very serious^ and such swelling ensues in the delicate membranes that threaten chok ing, the doctor must be seat for. But in ordinary cases, ice will allny pain and inflammation, or, failing ice, cold water cqntinually changed in the mouth. * * * A chocolate bread pudding varies the favorite device for the left-overs of the bread box. To make it. break into pieces a cupful of stale bread and turn two cupfuls of hot milk over them. When the bread is soft stir it until the mixture is soft, and add three squares of choco late thakt have been melted, one-half cup ful of sugar, the yoke of an egg, one- half teaspoonful of vanilla and a saltspoonfnl of salt. Fold in the stiffly whipped white of the egg. Bake in a moderate oven half an hour. For marking linen and clothing an im portant and labor saving device lias been imported from Switzerland. It consists of complete medallions of all sizes and designs in single letters, names or mono grams. These medallions can be appliqued eas ily with a few stitst -shethofwofgoway ily with a few stitche upon any article of household furniture or linen. One of the novelties of the device is the “twin letters,” two initialed halves, which, placed together, -form a complete mono gram or a combination of letters. * * .• A small, straight pompon of cream white in military shape is to he used on a pretty child’s hat. This is white, the crown of a smooth felt, and the broad brim of white beaver. The trimming is narrow white velvet ribbon, three bands of it carried around the crown, finishing in a soft knot or rosette at the left side of the front, with the pompon rising from it. • • , There never has been such a run on trinkets supposed to bring luok to the possessor as in the past few years. While the jeweler is making«au offering of lady bugs, the stationer is offering pigs and four-leaved clovers. Little things for pa per weights or ornaments for the writing table are tiny pigs sitting iu tiny pitchers and from the buck of the pitcher, raise I above the small animal's head, are three green four-leaved clovers. * * * Calendars c*e distinctly “posterish” this year. The finest French novelties are in large, rich colored desigfis. Painty floral effects are not considered so nearly up-to-date, though there are enough con servatives among shoppers to keep the trade iu them fairly good. INEXPENSIVE DWELLING. Neat Little Home That Gan Be Bnllt For $1,000. (Copyright, 1902, by Dennis * Gastmeyer, Architects, 2S0 Broadway, New York.] I We have had especially designed for us a nieely arranged, inexpensive home, with complete plumbing and a hot air furnace, that can be built for fl.fiOO. A cellar runs under the entire house, the cellar walls being of stone. The floor is cemented. There are stairs to i the rear yard and a furnace which j heats the house. The frame is built of hemlock lumber and timber, balloon style. The walls 1 _ FRONT ELEVATXON. are sheathed, papered, sided and shin gled, as shown in the elevation. The main roof is slated. The exterior, including the blinds on all of the windows except the cellar, is painted with two good coats of white lead zinc amh linseed oil paints of such colors as are desired. The interior is plastered with patent plaster, with a white hard finish. The floors are all laid with narrow tongued and grooved North Carolina flooring boards properly blind nailed. The trim FIRST (FLOOR PL AS. throughout is of white pine end cy press. The staircase is of ash. finished in natural wood. The second floor woodwork is paint ! ed white, and the first floor is stained oak and finished with two good coats ' of varnish. The floors are painted two i coats of lead oil and varnish. The hardware is of fancy imitation light bronze. The house is lighted by gas. The mantels, as shown, are of oak, with bevel plate mirrors.

It is worth considering carefully if you want a home that is not expensive. In Praise of Brickwork. 'Few materials are more suitable or more beautiful for a country house than brickwork honestly employed, says a writer in Country Life In Amer ica. Rough clinker bricks exhibiting various shades of the same color, from red to purplish black, laid in Flemish bond and broad, struck joints and left as laid, make a wall of better color and richer texture than one- built up of the more expensive pressed bricks, which are monotonously eveu in shape and color, with a surface like cut cheese. Whatever material is employed, let it show frankly for what it is and as far as possible express its nature. The Imitation of one material by another is always ignoble. It is best to be spar ing in tbe use of detail, so called. If a bouse be thoroughly well designed, the shape pleasing and the openings well proportioned and well placed, it has little to gain from applied ornament, and if it lacks these necessary charac teristics of good architecture uo amount of extraneous ornament will conceal tbe defect ^ --- ^ ^ TEN YEARS’ TRIAL & m Tfjc Story of a Soldier's Struggle By Briff&dier General CHARLES KING Copyright, 1001, by Charles Ivin; [CONTIXTTED.] ns they did la the war days, but this was 4i new company. He wa3 aa old officer, and t#j manual, minus the load ings and filings, was all he had yet taught them of the new breechloader •when came the call to arms. Mr. Chan cing, impatiently pacing the platform and reading dispatch after dispatch and occasionally dictating an answer to his new and silent secretary, pres ently saw that Laugdon’s attention was wandering and looked at, him in quiringly. “Those men have never been taught to load and fire,” said Langdon, “and their captain doesn’t know how. There will be. trouble if they get into a snarl with rioters.” “Then, for God’s sake, you show them! Here, Captain Xinkenfekler,” he continued impetuously, “my friend is a West Point officer. Let him help you there.” Linkenfekler knew Chan cing well, as who along the line did not? He wiped his brow and tried to look pleased as be explained that they hadn't been drilling long. But in five minutes Langdon had -the eight non commissioned officers present in a squad, the rest of the company eagerly surrounding and looking on. In 20 minutes they had "got the hang” of From that position he meant to give the •ico rd. thp most important parts. In an hour, when the other train came sweeping in. he had the whole company in line practicing "fire by company,” "fire by rack,” “fire by file.” and never in a doz en drills had the .1 unction Light guard learned as much as they had that day. "That fellow's a dandy drlllmaster,” was the verdict, and the fame of the exploit and the praise of this unknown soidier had gone through the train be fore ever it reached the bridge. Next morning when Company G was told off for a possibly hazardous piece of duty and its captain was found to he still in arrest and "sulking in his tent” a committee went to the peppery little major with the gray mustache and blinking eyes, not, as might have beep expected, to ask "cap's release,” but to say that "the boys wanted a man who was way up in the “biz’ if there' was any fighting to he done and could not That West Point fellow take com mand?” "Will you do it?'"lhskod the little major cf Lsngdon. “Will yon do It?” echoed Cbanning, and away went Eric across a maze of tracks. 70 strap ping young fellows striding confident ly after him. rejoicing in the ring and power cf his word of command. An hour later they stood confronting a fu rious mob ten times their number, hurl ing bricks and billingsgate and foul abuse. ■ At tbe point of the bayonet they had cleared the it 13 Horn shops of strikers, driven them into the open yards and the street beyond and open ed a passage for a train of cattle cars. But-by this time, noting that most of .Melville's forces tvere afar up the tracks rescuing cattle trains, from ev ery direction tramps, toughs and the desperadoes among the strikers drop ped the devilment they happened to be engaged in and came howling to re-en foree the expelled gang. Only 20 yards away, just outside and along the picket fence, they crowded, clamoring, curs ing. brandishing weapons and hurling missiles, but these latter, having to be hurled high, generally fell short. Many among Langdon's new command were lads whose "nerve” would long since have fled but fofi their leader’s placid unconcern. He had backed them, as it were, up against the brown tyoeden walls of the freighthouse and then stood coolly forth ten feet In front of them, facing the raging throng with out, sometimes quietly smiling as though he enjoyed the situation, some times slowly paciug up and down. At last as the clamor increased It became evident that the mob' was bent on a dash at the office building to their right, standing alone opposite the great wooden gates—gates which gave di rectly on the buildings containing the most valuable local properties of the Big Horn road, excepting possibly the locomotives in the roundhouse. It was a moment of excitement. No man in the little band of defenders could estimate the extent of damage tlujt would unquestionably result if that maddened throng broke through. It seemed as though by this time, ail me uevnETeot or me crsaceeica r\-s concentrated here at one spot, for the mob was vastly increased In size, and the jeers, hov.-ls and curses were now continuous. Small wonder that many n young state "guardsman” In the lit tle command felt a nervous thrill as he gazed at the host of semisavage faces peering in between the brown slats and listened to the hideous threats of the leaders. “We’ll have your hearts’ blood, you liveried dogs!” “We’ll 1'arn you tin soldiers a lesson!” "Burn^down the fence!” “Kill the murdering hounds!” "Cut their throats!” were ex purgated samples of the yells. But still the company stood at ordered arms and “at ease,” for I.angdon continued his cool promenade along the fron\ calmly eying the howling mob, keeping wary watch upon the fence and gate, but ever and anon glancing up the yards in search of support or re-enforcement, for, to all outward appearance the cool est, most unconcerned person on the ground, his heart was filled with grave anxiety. His was by long odds the most critical position of any man, sol- ; dier or civilian, that day in all Ne- ■ braska. For, now that he had time to face the facts and consider the position in all Its hearings, he realized that he had no authority whatever in law or fact to enable him to discharge the grave duties of his position—not so much as a commission in the state troops, not even a warrant as a deputy sheriff. If the mob charged and to defend the lives of these men he was compelled to order them to fire, an indictment for murder would doubtless lie at his door. It is one thing to do a man’s whole duty with the law behind him; it is an other to stand and face a thousand vot ers and realize that every drop of blood that might he shed on either side would, in the event of success or failure, he charged up to him. And still he never seemed disturbed. But Langdon’s heart beat quick when, just as it seemed probable that, neck or nothing, he should have to lace the sit uation anffi fight, he caught sight cf C’hanning v^ith thc'sheriff and a brace of deputies coming toward him on 1 he run. The crowd having concentrated here, it was possible for the officials now to leave other threatened points. He strolled, ds it were, with almost ex aggerated quiet to the right flank of his men to meet them. The mob re doubled its screams of defiance. “Major Melville wants to know how you’re getting along.” panted Charming as he hastened up, red faced, anxious, but plucky. “Well, you see for yourself.” said Eric, with a nod of his head .toward the fence. “Those fellows mean to burst through in a minute or two.” “Can’t you scare ’em? Fire a volley over their heads?” puffed the sheriff, eager and willing, but utterly inexperi enced. “That’s murder,” was the cool reply. “A mob gains tenfold in daring and devilment when it sees you’re afraid to fire-anything but blanks. You’ll sim ply have to kill 00 then where five would have sufficed in the first place. No, sir. Ball( cartridges cr nothing. And here’s another point. I'uy'not an officer either of the troops or cf the law.” And now Eric had to raise his voice above the outer clamor. "T can give the necessary commands and at the proper instant, and i can drive those howlers back in one volley if they attempt to force the gates, but yon. Mr. Sheriff, must stand, bp- my side and assume responsibility; otherwise a week from now you'll be around wi;li a warrant for my arrest.” “My Gcd, I can’t:’’ said the civil offi cial, wiping the sweat from his brow despite the cold wind from' the west ward prairie. Ee gazed almost fear fully along that surging fence line. It resembled by this time nothing so much as one ccnthiuops cage of snarl ing. roaring beasts. It was plain the poor-Teilow was losing his nerve. "Me and my family couldn’t live in this comramjlty another week. Can’t ycu say something to them. Mr.Chancing?” Eike many another civil official, the sheriff was realizing that it was quite one thing to tackle a lot of tramps, friendless and desperate as they were down at Bridge Siding; it was quite an other to think of letting drive a deadly volley into the breasts cf a mob that might contain friends and fellow citi zens, and that would be sure to turn to in retaliation and possibly murder his own beloved ones. Small wonder the sheriff hesitated! "Too late to talk!” shouted Chan ning impatiently. “Besides, there isn’t one sane railroad cian in 20'in that lot. They’re toughs from every town along the Big Muddy, and, by heaven, they’ll sack these yards before the regulars can get here unless you can stop it, Lang^Ion! That Infernal Seattle train ought to have been in long ago, but it may get bere inside of an hour, and their general manager’s Just behind ’em on a special. What can you do?” And Channing set his stern Jaw and glared at the crowd, fight,, almost fury, In his blazing eyes, then turned back to Langdon. Before the latter could an swer there came a scream from the sheriff. / t “Look! Sledge hammers, by heav en!” ho cried, pointing to the gate, al ready shaken by the furious heaving of the throng. "Then there’s only one thing to do,” answered Langdon, his face very pale, but his eyes aflame. “Cut of the way, please. Mr. Sheriff.” And, thus dismiss ing and disposing of that now useless functionary, lie stepped quickly back to the front of Ills men. Even in that supreme moment he was counting the chances of every move. He had faced rioters before and knew how vital it ; was that every movement cf the troops ; should be uiaehinellke and precise. ; “Listen to me carefully, now, men.” | lie spoke in his clear, animated tone, every word cutting through the clamor so as to be distinctly heard by these his young soldiers standing grave fac ,ed and come of them, it was evident, joulwring. bsfCLis. hitu, while, ou the THE WEELITTLES IN WASHINGTON, ThaWeehrtles visit the Congressional UESrory.

In spite of themselves the cursing ringleaders, the brawny wicldera of sledge and crow, dropped blasphemy and bars to' listen. They saw he had something to say. and curiosity prevailed. That white faced, gray eyed "cuss” had nerve and grit certainly and seemed profoundly unmoved by their uproar. What they heard was not to their lik ing, but hear it they had to. for he lift ed up bis voice so that it reached some hundred ears, uud yet his words were as calm, deliberate, passionless, as he himself might prove merciless. He spoke as though i: were a matter of utter indilTerenee to him whether they burst through and “got It” or staid without and were spared. “You seem bent c:i breaking in.” the clear tones rang out over the murmur and mutter close at hand—the tumult at the distance. "Mow. understand— if these gates tiy open, the instant you attempt to enter you get a volley in ^the face!” Then slowly, calmly, placidly as be fore, he turned about, walked back half way, /truly ten steps or so. and there, first glancing along his waiting line to insure its readiness and close at tention. in clear, sharp, commanding tone, with a distinct pause after every word, so that even the mob could hear, gave the order: \ “\V itli ball cartridges—load: Ten seconds more, and the silent 70 stood in the position preliminary to 4'eady, the brown barrels sloping to the front, the muzzles chin high, every eye fixed upon the gate In stern, calm de termination, the rants inspired by the soldier commander's intrepid and reso lute bearing—70 men in uniform obey ing to the letter the will of that one soldier in civilian dress—and then, once more in front cf the center.

From that position,* instead of In rear of the line, lie meant to give the word, and the death dealing volley would flash Into their faces over his head. CHAPTER VITI. That was a memorable day in rail way circles all over the west, but es pecially so in Nebraska. What made it more remarkable was that, with,the going down of the sun, the Big Horn road was practically in running order again, while the Seattle. Its powerful rival of the past, was still blockaded. Traversing.as they did fob 20 miles tfce SUT.;1 vemtcry, ujc i;ur» ui s.-™ uuij by tbe narrow gorge of the Ibi Water, it was strange to mark the bustle and life along the north bank—the lights, head and tall, of passenger, freight and cattle trains hurrying away eastward— and by contrast to note the silence on tl:o hither shore. Ail day long the ‘•booming” western city, the railway center of the populous section, had been thronged with people over and above its postodlce list—first, the fann ers and villagers from all over the county: second, the tramps and toughs and vagrants from all over creation. These latter, having joined forces with tire strikers early in the game, had speedily, as has been seen, taken the bit in their teeth, the game into their own hands, and the destruction of trains by tire and flame and the whole sale robbery cf freight cars were their doing, not that of the disaffected rail way men, who, all too late, wished themselves rid of their desperado- al lies. But all ever' the neighborhood now—among the- saloons that bordered the yards, the cheap taverns and lodg ing houses, all through the crowds of sullen, disheartened men skulking about the street corners, undecided whether to give up and go back to duty or launch oat on some new enterprise at the expense of the load—the-glory had gone tar and wide bow that fellow In the derby bat ami plain clothes had taken command cf a company of "me lishy.” "tin soldiers—nothing better.” am! tad so coolly handled them and in so cold blooded a way bad loaded up with sclid lend and given the gang to understand that he'd lot daylight through their hides if they stirred a foot through the company’s gates that the mob that went there bent on de struction. determined to burn and loot the offices and warehouses, slunk away completely cowed. "That feller’s boss of the Big Horn yards this day, boys, and we ain’t in it,” was the way the leader of the strikers expressed it. ar.d there was no sane man who cared to put it to the test. Ascribe it to whatever cause we may, It was a petrified fact that from the in stant Eric Langdon stepped out at the head of that company the Big Horn’s prrp rt.v was safe. The few willing workers left to the management took held wi(h a vim. An experimental train, guarded by milltiamhn front oth er companies, was started down the Bed 'Water. A construction train fol lowed with soldier boys manning both brakes and shovels. Chaining, the hurtling manager, tumbled clerks, bookkeepers, switchmen and car smiths into engine cabs, wired for oth ers to meet them at Gupnison and ac tually had his trains moving at the very moment when the Seattle sheds were going up in llame, and the great general manager of that great corpora tion, with curses in his heart and his hands in his pockety, st^iod scowling on the scene of ruin through which the belated regulars were driving the last vestiges of the mob, and ilr.

LIGHT FROM SPIRIT LAMPS Progress Being Made in This Direc tion in Eu- ope. From a report just published in the “Bulletin de la Soeiete d’Encourage ment,” it appears that very great im provements have recently been effected in lamps intended for lighting by methy lated spirits, the consumption of spirit per caudle power being less than half what was required in lamps teste.1 twelve months ago. One lamp of sixty candle power, submitted by M. Uopay roll se. of Paris, burnt only about one twentieth of tt fluid ounce of spirit per candle power hour, so that one pint of spirit would supply this lamp for be tween six and seven hours. Another bmp of the same make, but of forty can dle power, showed very nearly, the-same efficiency. In those lamps the tin me is directed on to a mantle of the Welsbach type, since the flame itself is non-lumin ons. In some eases, .however, where a mixture of spirit atid benzine is used, the mantle is dispensed with, the dame being then sufficiently luminous per ss. With these lamps, however, the consump tion of spirit per candle power hour is vorv much greater than it is in the case of the lamps using mantles. HA ILKOADS.
