O f MAYFIELD. A rAOINQ FAD. Rapid Uuulliio ol the Rce After the Gro tenquo In Dvo-timtlva Art. Within tho past few years, the rage for tho horrible und grotesque in dec orative art has declined. It is a fad ing fad. a ratro that was consumed by its own zeal. While it lasted, tho sanctuary of home took on the attri butes of a heathen temple and the ugli est objects produced by pagan carvers in wood and workers in metal were given the most honored places. People of tho most refined tastes did not hesi tate to thus transform their parlors, li brary, reception hall and dining room into so many museums in which veri table freaks wero the most treasured objects The rage extended to car vintra. furniture, etc. Griffins in costly woods, and hideousness generally was depicted in prominent places of tho in tenor, until the apartments, in many instances, were nothing less than a solidified nightmare. The extreme ugliness of these ob jects dominated the beauty of the ap pointments, and tho refined taste ex hibited in statuary, draperies of deli cate hue and texture, paintings and engravings wero lost sight of in the presence of some deformity in armor, or some Japanese warrior, life size, in solid wood, and as homely as the late Mr. Crowley of Central park. The motive at tho bottom of this perverted tosto was probably that phase of hu man nature which makes one covet, not his neighbor's goods, but some thing which Tils neighbor has not, nor is likely to have. This motive existed tnv n otinrt time onlv. When ugli ness was procurable oy the buyer of average resources; when importers and manufacturers could provide hid eousness at reasonable figures, the charm of ugliness was gone and tho fancy of tho favored few took a differ ent turn a turn in a better direction. Thero is but a slow market for outre objects destined for tho adornment of the homo. Instead, thero is moro re finement manifested In tho require ments of buyers Tho carvings that adorn a costly mantel or bcaufet must possess grace, and if a caryatid or a gargoyle or a gnmn is k wnu 01 ino permanent uuconmuuo, We have received a big lot of Lace Curtains. which we are offering at 75c, $1, and $1.25 a pair.

A little ugliness acts as a foil for beauty, but a wealth of grotesquerie has been lound oppressive and in poor taste. Tho change is a gratifying ono to all lovers of tho beautiful, and tho end of the reign of deformities and freaks will be mourned by none save those that ransacked tho shops of China and Japan for Bomethiug hideous enough to gratify the victims of tho fad which is fading away.

Most of us aro able to supply a rop arteo if we aro given time to think it over, but a reparteo half an hour after the occasion for it has passed is like a blank cartridge. It is tne readiness of tho retort that makes it effective The great Russian soldier, Marshal Suvor off, was in tho habit of asking his men difficult Questions, sometimes foolish ones, and bestowing favors on those who showed presence of mind in an swering them. On ono occasion u general of division sent him a sergeant with dispatches, at the same time recommending the bearer to Suvoroff's notice. Tho mar shal, as usual, proceeded to test him by a series of whimsical questions. "How far is it to the moon?" "Two of your excellency's forced marches," the soldier promptly re plied. "If your men began to glvo way in a battle, what would you dot" "I'd tell them that just beklnd the enemy's line there was a wagon load of good things to eat." "How many fish aro there in tho seal" "Just as many as have not been caught." And bo the examination went on, till Suvoroff , finding bis now acquaint ance armed at all points, at length asked him, as a final poser, "What is tho difference between your colonel and myself?" "The difference Is this," replied the soldier, coolly. "My colonel cannot make mo a captain, but your excel lency can." uuvoron, struck by 111a snrewancss, kept his eyo upon tho man, and soon afterward gave him tho promotion for which holiad asked. -Youth's Com panion. Will Adjourn. Austin, April 4 The house this uiording passed the bill providing for tax sales under which invalid deeds could be made, but reconsidered and defeated it in the afternoon. This matter of taking tho back track has become so common with the house that nobody ever feels that a measure is adopted for certain until tho time for reconsideration has passed. Tho free conference committee on the general appropriation bill has been working hard, but the work is not yet completed and it mil probably not ba finished before to-morrow night. It begins to look doubtful whether matters will bo in condition for ad journment on Monday, but it is not probable that tne members win do Milliner to atav loncer. and adiourn rnent will doubtless take place then, ready or no ready.
