j The f *minine world is again taking to
the use of stately and artistic coffers or
: chests, reports the Washington Star.
The dames of the middle ages who
i had no convenient bureaus in which to
l store their finery, were dependent upon
| Lae coffer. Some of these historic chests
are marvels of del. .at® carving, inlay
work aid painting. The greatest artists
cf Italy oid not disdain to decorate this®
, receptacles.
I So valuable were some of the coffers
i that a great lady was cc, 'dersd well
. dower* •; if she received cne. a her mar
riage day. it was placed iu her cham
ber, w .\ii the great bedstead and a stool
or two, w hich wore the soi* furnishings.
Toward the close of th® tighteenth c u
! tury coffers were all but discarded. Un
til recently specimens war® to be found
.only in the mu.-oums or old castles and
manor houses of Europe.
Now the taste for antique furnitur*
is bringing the coffers again into favor.
Two seen recently were mads for tli®
plate room? of yachts. They are both
! carved and tinted.
I One chest Is built of weathered oak,
! deeply carved end then stained In green
: and re-1. The design represents mer
maids spin g in the midst of an ocean
forest. Seaweeds and shells are the moat
I conspicuous features in tire picture,
j The other coffer Is of oak, having a
! gray finish. It is decorated with a burnt
design. Green and rnauv® stains ar®
U3ed to touch up the figure®. The sub
ject of these decorations in a scans at
the court of King Neptune.

aprays of the climbing roses are blows
Into the room and the flowers with th*
| garments of the women are brilliantly

! Scriptural subjects were painted on
; some of the antique chests, and these
S hare: been well imitated by modern
| workmen. The painted panel la set deep
i la the wood and framed by a wide band
i of molding Tarred figures, supporting
| the corners, and elaborately designed,
; lids are features of the painted chests.
| The most ancient designs are the
; heavily carv'd ones. Those who lr*
! verael in the history of furniture tan
j tell to a nicety the age of a cheat by th*
i style of carring and quality of the wooi
! The earlier Renaissance specimens are
I almost priceless, and even copies of
j them are expensive, lu appearance they
; are not unlike a cofliu. There is usually
a richly carved base, the long shallow
l body above it being slightly curved. Th*
lid projects over the body, and is iesa
! deeply cut than the sides.
! A more modern Renaissance chest,
j and a, style which is more frequently
1 copied, is embellished with small panels,
! on which appear conventionalized foli*.
age designs in line work. The shading
j Is burnt into the wood,
i Gilded and enameled coffers are also
to be seen, but they are eighteenth een
tury work and represent the period if
The modern household coffer is usual
ly lined with silkor an art fabric. Plenty
of tin;/ pockets are scattered over th*
lining, and in these are placed sachei*
for perfuming th-- intents of the box.
Th$ chests are -onvenient receptacle*
for lin'n, bedclothes, draperies or gar
ments not in use.
Those who can afford a cedar chest
need have no fear of moths. Although
> thus* ornamental boxes cost more than
trunks, they will last a lifetime. They
are distinctly decorative, and may be
made to fit any vacant niche in a small
room. The price varies with the style
of decoration and wood. Some are com
; para lively inexpensive, while others,
cood imitations of the carved antique
I chest or the gilded and enameled eight
eenth century masterpieces, are valued
as are most works of art.


j driseu Sailor Boy Wanted to See One,
and He Was Quickly Ac
A waterspout la one of the first things
j a green sailor hoy wants to see. He has
! read about it as one of the wonders of
; the sea. and it rouses his keenest curi
; osity. He gets the old sailors to promis*
| to call him when one is sighted. They
j promise, winking stealthily at each oth
er, relates am exchange.
The ship gets down into tropical wa
ters, and the boy is told that a water
spout may come along almost at any
One night , he. la awakened suddenly.
I Ac old sailor shakes him.
. ‘'Come on! Hurry up, young feller;
j there's a waterspout on the starboard
j bow bearing right down on us.”
i The boy hastens up the companion
i way without waiting to draw, and aa
! he darts out on aecK ne is tnrown aowa
by a mass of water descending on him
tike a wet mountain. He struggles to
his feet, gasping, sputtering:
,rWa-a-s that-t a wa-a-arter spout?"
The sailors are around him roaring.
Thenahe look3 up above the companion
way and sees an empty hogshead. Having
• seen and felt the waterspout, he descends
i to his bunk, wipes himself dry and turns
1 iu. Next time waterspouts In great num
bers may be reported on both bows, but
he will have no particular desire to ob
serve them.

so much money at once, and concluded
that the bank could not stand sueh a

her friends about it, and the new*

Kuroki’s Name.
Several French soldiers, survivor* of
the Chinese expedition of 185S, are re
sponsible for the statement that Gen.
Kuroki is in reality haif French. His
name, they say, is properly spelled
Curique. According to the story ol
these soldiers, a French officer, CaptJ
Curique, while serving In China is
1856, married a Japanese girl. A son
was born to them, who was given the
Japanese name Kuroki, corresponding
to the French Curique. This son, it
is said, is Gen. Kuroki. Capt. Curique
