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
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

each having a lining. Cut each section
in shape like a large pear, with a long
neck. In the neck of the pear cut out a
small pair shaped section for the handle

together and'bind them neatly with rib

c id (idly novel, is this altogether fetching
ruin coat from Paris. 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.

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.

Neat Little Home That Gan Be Bnllt
For $1,000.
(Copyright, 1902, by Dennis * Gastmeyer,
Architects, 2S0 Broadway, New York.]
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
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 _
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
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.
The kitchen contains range, boiler,
wash trays and sink, with open plumb
ing. The bathroom also has open
plumbing, with a steel clacl tub and i>
marble wash basiu. The uantry is pro
vided with a dresser, shelves, closets,
etc.. Vs may be desired.
This makes a very complete and com
fortable home and one that can easily
be modified to suit auy one or any lot.
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 ^ --- ^ ^

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

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

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- ■
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
“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

Langdon. Before the latter could an

sheriff. / t
“Look! Sledge hammers, by heav

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

fcls men and the mob as, all alone, he
sauntered down to the gates. In spite
of themselves the cursing ringleaders,
the brawny wicldera of sledge and
crow, dropped blasphemy and bars to'

say. and curiosity prevailed. That
white faced, gray eyed "cuss” had

profoundly unmoved by their uproar.
What they heard was not to their lik

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

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.
