EASY ON THE STRAP.
80. Woman May Be Easy Even
When Clinging to Car Strap.
The American Jewess.
Always face the sides of the car, never the
front or rear. When the car starts, lean
slightly in the direction in which it is going.
When the car is about to stop lean toward
the rear. Plant your feet as far apart as
you comfortably can. When a car turns a
corner incline the body toward inside curve
of the rails, and, when feasible, grasp the
6trap on the side of the ear over this Inside
curve, thus reducing the strain to a mini
mum. Non-observance of this particular
rule is the cause of the frantic clutches and
Involuntary displays of affection which the
standers sometimes bestow upon those
The philosophy of such rules Is as follows:
You lean toward the direction of the start
ing car, so that your body, which does not
acquire the forward motion simultaneously
■with the car, shall, so to speak, not be left
behind. The starting of the car restores the
body to its usual ere__ posture. You lean
toward the rear when the car stops to
counteract the forward momentum acquired
by the body while the car was In motion.
In rounding a curve you lean toward the
Inside rail to counteract the centrifugal
force which tends to throw objects from
the center. But the main thing for you to
remember is: Always face the sides "of the
car. These rules are particularly applicable
to cable cars, which rarely fail to stop or
etart without a jerk.
When alighting from the car place the
left hand on the brass rod provided for the
purpose (I assure you that you light on the
Tailless side), and face the front of the car.
Even if the car is still in motion, you are
then safe. As for boarding moving cars, I
should advise you to wait until your grab is
better adapted for higher gymnastics.
In case these rules prove beneficial the
women may thank me. Should they be de
ficient, why, there's the man.

So That the Hungry Hordes Must
Remain Hungry for That Time
Mayor-elect Doran has left St. Paul. He
left quietly, but that does not mean he will
not return. On the other hand, he will cer
tainly be back. When? He didn't tell the
Globe, but he will not return until he has
thought it all over and about made up his
mind which one of the scores of .applicants
for each place he will select.
Mr. Doran's success has been a most un
pleasant surprise. While he knew that he
would be hounded by the hungry office
seekers, he thought they would wait a few
days until he could gain a full appreciation
of where he was at. But they didn't. Be
fore he got to his office Wednesday, the but
tonholing began, and has kept up ever since.
He told his troubles to Capt. McCardy and
ex-Gov. MeGill Thursday afternoon, and the
"This will keep up for months, Mr. Doran,"
said he. "When I was elected governor, for
six months after my Inauguration—inaugura
tion, mind you, not election—l was unable to
do a thing but give up all my time to office
seekers. They came In ones and twos and
scores and delegations. That is the way you
will find it. The chances are the longer
you are In office the worse it will be."
Mr. Doran left the little party feeling sad.
He thought it all over, and finally decided to
quietly leave town. He did not tell the
Globe where he was going, and he did not
tell anybody else that he was going at all.
He has taken care to cover up his tracks so
that the most anxious man for office will be
unable to reach him personally, by letter or
by telegram. In the meantime the office
seekers will have a chance to compare notes
and then decide that nobody has any chance
to get a position except he who is jollying
CAPT. HARDACRE. SECRET.
Light on His Success as a Fisher
Most Minnesota fishermen know Capt.
George M. Hardacre, of St. Paul, the veteran
angler who has dropped his hook into nearly
every stream and lake of any consequence in
Minnesota, and the following communication
to a Stillwater newspaper will be read with
For many years the phenomenal luck of
George Hardacre in catching large strings of
black bass has been a cause of wonder to
other fishermen who, while equally indus
trious, would not even be rewarded with a
"rise." They might throw in at the same
place, and while George would pull out a
nice bass, nothing would occur to disturb
the serenity of the other fellow's frog. Of
course this was very annoying, and some
jealous chap started the rumor that Hard
acre had some farmers engaged to catch bass
for him during the week and then keep the
fish in a large crate until Saturday night,
when he would come out from St. Paul and
attach them to his string.
This story was exploded, however, when
several reputable fishermen. Jack McCarthy, i
Gus Schuttinger, John Nethaway and others, \
investigated and reported on the same. The :
secret leaked out last winter, however, and j
In this way: George was seized with a se
▼ere attack of asthma, and, believing his end
to be approaching, he called a mutual friend j
to his bedside and imparted the secret to
him, on condition that it should not be made ;
public until his death. But to the great sat- j
Isfaction of his many friends, George recov
ered, but his confidant finally gave his secret
away and now I offer it for publication, with ,
the firm belief in Its authenticity.
About nine years ago Mr. Hardacre went
to the Hot Springs for his health, and after
being there several days, he decided to try
toe bass fishing in that locality. After fishing
up and down a small stream without success,
he finally concluded that either there were !
no fish there or it must be the wrong season
t__ catch them, and he was about to return |
to hfs hotel when on looking up he beheld a
lone fisherman, a typical Arkansas native.
__lli__ the fish in as fast as he could throw
SSVwSI up to where the s ranger
"»_ don'tlfant the secret to leak.out among
t_. folks here but I don't mind telling
you as you are from the North. Last win
ter I trie- to cross this here run with a load
•of wheat and as the ice wasn't very thick
T broke"through. I tell ye, stranger, I was
miEhty Sad to save the team and wagon,
Saving the wheat at the bottom of the run.
I neve.* thought nothing of it until sevend
months ago, when I came akn*the stream
fishing. I couldn't get a bite until l "rucit
this snot and then the bass fairly fought
for theP hook and I caught all I cou d carry.
I looked into the water and found that this
Place fairly swarmed with minnows, de
vouring the wheat, and then, of course the
larger fish were there devouring the. min
now- and incidentally getting a wheat sand
wl-i-and fish are just as fond of a change
of diet as humans."
When George returned home he at once
"planted" several bushels of wheat In dif
ferent spots In Lake Elmo, and the result
was more thar up to all expectations.

REDUCTION WAS DENIED.
Conference of Twin City Johhers
and Trunk Line Association Was
Yesterday afternoon General Freight Agent
Clark, of the Omaha road; General Manager
Plough, of the St. Paul _ Buluth, and a num
ber of prominent jobbers from St. Paul and
Minneapolis returned from New York city.
The purpose of their visit East was to secure,
if possible, a reduction of the scale rate from
84 to 75 cents on all through freight west from
New York to the Twin Cities. The gentlemen
attended a three days' session of the Trunk
Line association, lake managers and Western
railroad lines, where the application came up
for consideration and was derided. It is un
derstood, however, that this action is not final,
and that the request will again be consid
ered by the railroads at an early day.
SIGNS OF THE TIMES.
How H. F. Phelps Seems to Interpret
The subject discussed by Pastor H. F.
Phelps, at the Wacouta Street chapel, was as
follows: "The Signs of the Timesi What
Do These Things Mean?" The following are
some of the points made by the speaker;
These are most stirring times. Almost ev
ery day the historian can njaka record of
momentous events. So deepte. .do these -
events affect the world of matikHtd,'tliat were

earth again, signs In the sun, the moon and
the stars, He says: "And upon the earth dis
tress of nations, with perplexity; men's hearts
failing them for fear, and for looking for
those things which are coming on the earth."
Though spoken more than 1,800 years ago,
here we find an exact word picture of the
times in which we now live; and as the un
folding of the buds and early flowers ls the
harbinger of coming spring, so may these
things be looked upon as omens of tbe com
ing of the Just One.
The second advent of Christ ls an event
more generally admitted and believed today,
though as to the manner of that coming
there Is not so much of an agreement It
is not so much the purpose of this discourse
to discuss that coming, of which the day and
hour are not revealed, as to notice a few
of the many signs by which the world may
know when it is near.
The universal cry of peace is noted in
Scripture as a precursor of sudden destruc
tion, while the many war-like preparations
are most startling and bespeak the battle of
the great day. If we are to judge of the
laxity of divorce laws, and the corruption of
our cities, it would look as if the times of
Noah and Sodom were again upon us, which
Christ himself said would precede His com
ing in glory.
INSPECTOR OF FISHERIES.

THE NEW SIR WALTER SCOTT.
Scotland. Novelist _ Name Handed
Down In the Direct Line.
New York Tribune.
The recent cable dispatch" announc
ing the approaching elevation of young
Walter Maxwell Scott to the dignity
of knighthood is not only an occur
rence of peculiar importance to read
ers, but of special interest to New
Yorkers who have had, on two occa
sions, the pleasure of meeting in this
city the father and mother of the
young man who is to receive the rare,
if not unique, honor of being knighted
solely for the accomplishments of a
The deep affection with which Sir
Walter Scott is held in the hearts of all
Englishmen is evidenced by the fact
that through generations, in spite of
the absence of the male line, his name
has been perpetuated to the present
day by court degrees, permitting trie
daughters of his descendants to hold
the name of their great ancestor on
their own marriage. In New York
Hon. and Mrs. Joseph Maxwell-Scott
are known by many; they visited
America in 1885 and 1887. On both trips
they were for some time the guests of
Mr. and Mrs. Elliott Roosevelt and. Mr.
and Mrs.C.de Garmendia, and received
courtesies from many representative
New Yorkers. Their second visit was
spent mostly in Florida, where they
were guests of Mr.and Mrs.Franklin W.
Smith, of Boston, at St. Augustine.
On their return to Abbotsford they
were profuse in returning hospitality
to their American friends, who enjoy_d
at their splendid home many house
parties, comprising leaders in the so
cial, political, ecclesiastical and literary
life of England.
The mother of the present Mrs. Mary
Monica Maxwell-Scott died when she
was a child. Sir Walter's daughter
Sophia had married John Lockhart, the
historian. Three children were born to
them. The youngest married James
Hope, who, by act of parliament, took
the name of Hope-Scott. They also
had three children, of whom the sole
survivor is Mary Monica, the present
Mrs. Scott. To her have fallen not
only the splendid estates of Abbots
ford, but also the honor of perpetuat
ing the name of her famous ancestor.
The father of Mary Monica married
in 1860, as his second wife, Lady Vic
toria Howard, the eldest sister of the
present Duke of Norfolk. Mr. Hope-
Scott was a man of high position in the
legal and financial worlds, and, having
won the confidence of the late Duke of
Norfolk, was upon his death made joint
guardian with the widowed duchess
of the- present duke and his sisters.
Thus young Mary Monica spent much
of her early life at Arundel castle, the
ancestral home of the Norfolks, and
here she was carefully reared, sur
rounded by all the stately luxury and
magnificence of one of the finest resi
dences in the world. The present Duke
of Norfolk is an ardent Roman Cath
olic, and secular head of that church
in England. From Mr. Hope-Scott's
intimate relations with the present
duke he soon became a convert to that
faith. Mary Monica was also trained
in it, and enjoyed the companionship
of Cardinal Newman, Cardinal Man
ning, and the most distinguished men
of the religious world.
Her debut in society was made the
occasion of special formalities. She
was presented at court by her aunt,
the Duchess of Buccleuch, when the
queen was particularly charmed by the
personal beauty of the young girl. Her
distinction, combined with her unaf
fected nature, soon made her a great
favorite. On one occasion the queen
kissed the-astonished debutante on
both cheeks, before the whole court,
exclaiming: "Here is all we have left
of Sir Walter!"
After a season of great brilliancy in London
she returned to Arundel Castle to meet her
fate. Descending the staircase of the great
hall, as she entered it on her arrival, was
Joseph Maxwell, just arrived for a week's
visit. The young people were constantly to
gether thereafter, and when he departed to
join his regiment at Gibraltar he made ns
secret of the impression made upon his heart
The following winter they met again in Al
giers, where Mary Monica was staying with
the Duchess of Norfolk, and there their be
trothal was formally arranged. The wedding
took place in the great chapel of Arundel,
and two years after their first meeting the
young heiress of Abbotsford and her hand
some young husband installed themselves on
that beautiful historical estate, amid the bell
ringings, bonfires and triumphal arches which
celebrated the joy of the tenantry that the
charming young chatelaine had entered into
The present moster of Abbotsford, Hon.
Joseph Maxwell-Scott, is a younger brother
of Lord Herries, of Everingham Park. The
later is unmarried, and consequently both Mr.
Maxwell-Scott and the coming Sir Walter
stand In the direct line to Inherit the title
and splendid estates of Lord Herries. The
family consists of seven children. Walter has
been carefully trained for the army. Malcolm,
the secod son, will enter the navy. Then fol
low Josephine, now entering society at the
age of 19; Alice, 14; Michael, 12; Margaret, 9,
and Herbert, a rollicksome youngster of _
years. Mr. Maxwell-Scott's brothers, Hon.
William and Walter Maxwell, have both made
several visits to this country. Private letters
have been received recently in New York to
the effect that Mr. and Mrs. Maxwell-Scott are
anticipating another visit to this country, and
this time with their. distinguished kinsman,
the Duke of Norfolk.

SCHIFFMAN FOUNTAIN BASE
Is Already Being* Prepared for the
Reception of Its Artistic Burden
The parks and other pleasure and hot
weather resorts caught the St. Paul populace
yesterday. The elevated temperature of the
past few days was In a great measure re
sponsible for this, though the desire to get
out In the early summer days and breathe
the pure air of the suburban resorts seems to
be a part of the average mortal's nature.
Some enjoy boating and others can have all
kir.ds of rest and enjoyment walking on the
park grasses when the "sparrow cop" ls not In
sl^jjt Still others spend a delightful Sunday
sprinkling the lawn and letting little driblets
of squirt from the back end of the hose wet
their best dresses or trousers, as the ease may
be. But the large majority are just content
to get away from the city and breathe the
unpolluted ozone found only beyond the city's
At least 4,000 people must have visited Lake
Como yesterday. Prom 10 o'clock in the morn
ing until late in the afternoon, when the
clouds gathered and threatened a ducking, all
cars were loaded going to the lake and the
handsome park. Of course, where such a
number of people are gathered together, there
were incidents of a more or less serious and
amusing nature. A sticky-faced kid fell
into the lake from tho dock early in the aft
ernoon, and a "scorcher" was pursued and
halted by one of the mounted "sparrows."
For the first time -this season, the bicycle
| boat was shoved into _he water, and a young
! lady in "knickers" was the first one to mount
! it. That was when tbe sticky-faced kid fell
into the lake. He was so thoroughly en
grossed in watching the young lady "scorch"
ou: into the lake that he walked right off the
dock. The novel sight, attracted hundreds of
sight-seers along the shore.
The cycle boat was kept out for several
hours, but after the young lady in "knick
ers" retired about 90 per cent of the audience
drifted off Into the park. The possibilities
of the cycle boat in the future were for the
remainder of the day an interesting topic of
conversation with the hundreds of wheelers
j present at the park. Some maintained that
not many years would elapse before there
j would be cycle canals along the streets of the
principal cities. One cycler, with an eye
I single to the water cycle's practical utility,
! inelegantly remarked that It would "help
wonderfully in the work of sewer laborers—
I they could travel so much easier." The ill—
j smelling suggestion was treated with the
silent contempt it deserved. It is the inten
tion of the cycle boat managers within the
next two weeks to have a water cycle race
on Lake Harriet. Six young ladies will par
Speaking of the general appearance of Lake
Como park, park custodians as a, rule have a
weakness for cuttjng the grass about every
| other day. Lake Como park, is no exception.
The place had yesterday a clean-snaven ap
pearance that was inartistic and out of har
mony with the general surroundings.
Some men would look pretty ragged if
they neglected to visit the barber regularly,
but with possibly a few exceptions, beards
are not in the same class with park grass.
The park board is having built a founda
tion for the beautiful fountain presented to
| the park by Dr. R. Schiffman last season. It
j will be erected a short distance from the
', park entrance, down on the level stretch
I back from the lake, and when it is in place
| it will make the spot the most attractive one
jin the park. The fountain, which is mod
eled after one in Paris, will be in operation
and delighting park visitors In another
! three weeks.
Yesterday may be said to have been the
i first day on which the parks attracted any
large number of visitors. If the thousands
who enjoyed themselves yesterday are any
criterion by which to judge future Sun
days durfhg the summer, they will give
happiness to multitudes during the hot
BURDENS OF LIFE.
Rev. J. F. Stout Telia the Secret of
Rev. J. Frank Stout preached at First M.
E. church Sunday morning from Psalms lv\,
22: "Cast thy burden upon the Lord and He
shall sustain thee." He eaid In part:
Burdens of every kind are In the world to
stay. Sorrow, pain, disappointment and des
pair are here in part- because of sin and in
part because they help In-the development of
the Individual character. .There is a large as
sortment of burdens ready fitted to the hearts
of men, and to these_many are added by the
imperfect relations of human life. The ex
actions of government when pushed beyond
righteousness, and the competition for place
in society have done much to add to a load al
ready heavy enough, which has been threat
ening to crush out the joy of life. Responsi
bility, too, has had its weight, and worry has
more than anything helped to slow the step,
and change hope to hopelessness and activity
to sloth. The text gives a divine solution to
the problem of human burdens; a command
and a promise. The command we must obey,
and in the promise we must trust
There are, however, two limitations to the
possibility of obedience: First, we cannot
change the facts of human suffering, for they
are unchangeable, and life in their presence
cannot be what it might be if removed from
under their shadow, and yet these facts are
not necessarily evil, they may indeed work
good. Second, personal responsibility cannot
be thrown off the shoulder on which God has
laid It The soul under orders may juggle
with his conscience, as did Jonah, but he
cannot find rest until he cries out against
the wickedness of Nineveh; or, he may take
up his rod as did Moses and face the perils
of Egypt that he may do the work to which
he ls called. This, however, can be done
after we have allowed these limitations—He
can cast all worry on the Lord, by cultivating
a healthful faith that ls not overcome by
obstacles, but moves out*_l the assumption
that God will give grace and power to the
man under orders to ;do" "that which he has
been commanded to ufadertsake. This attitude
ls Independent of circumstances, and is the
result of a triumphant Inner life.
Worry ls one of our tworpt enemies. It has
a magic of its own, it waves its wand, and 10,
joy Is turned to sorrow, day to night, hope to
despair. Its magic is anything but good. Our
society ls cursed by worry; we are not satis
fied with anything that is. It is either too hot
or too cold, too dry or too wet; people are
either too coarse or too jflne; churches are
either too stately or tpo common; choirs are
too professional or too amateur; preachers are
too loud or too quiet, too dignified or too com
mon, too old or two young; Indeed, everything
is too. This plaint ls practically often heard
to the sorrow of eveiy one that knows the
singer. The antidote is a helpful faith which

The test Indicates the very method by which
God removes burdens j he ißustalns under
necessary loads and delivers from the minec

line of changing facts fte in uplifting the ob

they may eaßily bear their loads, upheld by
the grace of God. Stephen upheld and spir

enemies is a better type .of divine help than
the closing of the mouths of the lions to save

The whole question really comes to be a

The church ls full of invalids, to whom the
"grasshopper" would be a burden, when It

"He will sustain." If He orders to climb
the height He will give quickness of eye and
strength of limb so that thou mayst stand
upon the summit If He sends thee against
the giant He shall aid in selecting the pebble,
in balancing the sling, and direct the flashing
missile to its place. Whatever He bids thee
do He will sustain thee in doing it He will
bear thy burdens and at the same time help
thee to be true to thine own responsibilities.
* AMUSEMENT NOTES.
Eugene W. Presbrey, the well-known teacher
of dramatic art in Sargent's Academy of
Dramatic Arts, New York city, gives his
pupils systematic courses in nature. Mr.
Presbrey explains his plans as follows:
"My theory of teaching pupils to act Is
that, like the artist, they must go to nature,"
Mr. Presbrey said, "and that first last and
always they should go to that model. Like
the painter, the actor does not create; he
reproduces, and his weapons are physical
dexterity and imagination. The painter ac
quires physical cultivation by teaching his
brain to follow his hand without conscious
effort, and the same Is true of the actor's
control of his body to express his meaning.
j Imagination is the result of multiplied ob
[ servation, and through observation the artist
j creates in his own brain a storehouse from
which to draw. The senses are the doors to
the great storehouse, and nothing comes out
of that storehouse which has not been put
j Into it. Only when the observation of the
I artist or the actor has enriched his brain
! with this material can he have any source to
j draw from. Acting ls the endeavor of one
| individual to convey an Impression of an
other individuality, and the life study which
I teach to our students in the school is the
same as that which the painter follows.
"After that, just as a painter learns the
physical means of his art, we teach tho
students their technical requirements as
actors. Instead of the pencil and the brush
we have every muscle of the bo _y. The
analogy Is the same throughout all their pre
paration. In the place of straight-line draw
ing for the control of the hand, we bes-in
by recording all observable movements of
the fingers without regard to their meaning,
then of the whole hand, the arm, the should
er, the head, the feet, and the body. All
of these movements must be from .actual
observation. After months of this training
the student is allowed to add words and
present finished sketches of character in
volving half a dozen persons and requiring
fifteen or twenty minutes to exhibit. The
students are not told what to study after
j their first weeks. The method In Its ersence
is very simple. They learn to focus their
eyes and ears wherever they may be, and
so become abnormal observers of life. They
have note-books, and record th.r observa
"In the three years of trial given to the
experiment Jn the school the results have
proved most valuable. I know of no way
so quickly to break away the outer shell of
diffidence which is natural to most human
beings, and to improve memory or 'ntpart
self-control. The students observe life in
their homes. In the streets, in the courts
I and the hospitals, and they take life and
I nature in all these places as their models."

Once in Paris Edmund Kean took his wife
! to see Talma in "Orestes." He was provoked
j at finding her cold in the presence of such
tremendous acting. "You don't understand
I the thing," he urged. "Nohting was ever
like him. He is worth both me and John
Kemble put together."
When, however, the mad scene was reached,
Mrs. Kean was completely won over, and
she became as rapturous as she had before
been indifferent. "I never saw anything to
compare with it," she exclaimed.
"Humph!" grunted the now piqued Kean,
"I think I could do better than that. Only
wait till you see my mad scene."
This fable teaches that it is a difficult thing
to please a star.

John Hare, the English comedian, who has
Just closed his first American tour, has
these kind words to say about American au
diences and American managers:
"One of my greatest pleasures in America
has been to note everywhere the de6ire to
welcome anything that is pure and whole
some In the drama, as opposed to the impure
j and meretricious. 'A Pair of Spectacles'
has been received everywhere enthusiastic
ally, and I have attributed this fact to its
general purity. Robertson's plays are always
hailed with satisfaction, I believe, principally
on this account—because they are pure and
wholesome. That which makes people who
go to the theater come from it feeling bright
and happy must be in the long run the
most successful for the manager and the
artist, and I believe its production will al
ways be the best paying policy. There ls a
great future for the English and American
drama, and the purest of the plays will meet
that future the soonest
"I would like to say one thing before clos
ing this interview," said Mr. Hare, "and
that ls, to give my evidence of the extraor
dinary liberality and sympathy of the Amer
ican theatrical manager. I have been ill,
as you know, both here and In Chicago, with
the result that theaters have had to be
closed, at great expense to the managers.
They have lost a good deal of money through
this misfortune of mine, as I have my
self; but In both cases the managers have
been both heartily sympathetic and liberal
in accepting their losses without making
me feel unhappy. They could have mads
my own losses much more severe than they
have been had they chosen to insist on their
business rights under the laws, but instead
their only concern has seemed to be about
my condition, as it affected myself, with no
thought of Its effect on their own Interests.
Such treatment as this makes me feel their
debtor to a large extent, and I want to
acknowledge now the obligations which I feel

Who _ us Saved From Drownlnff.

A fat man carrying a gun and leading a
dog made a dash down Market street for the
Oakland ferry boat. He could have caught
it if he had walked quietly along, but he be
came excited, and old Time commenced hav
ing fun with him. The dog would run on the
wrong side of telegraph poles and hydrants
and tangle up his chain In the legs of pedes
trians. By the time spent in apologizing and
untangling the dog he was delayed until the
little gate closed In his face. Then he ran
around to the big gate, dodged around a mail
wagon, and made a run for the boat. The
deck hands raised the apron aud the boat
moved slowly out, but he was determined to
catch It, and, gripping his gun and dog chain
a little tighter, made a run and sprang into
the air. The boat was only six feet away,
but the dog balked the apron. The hunter
stopped in the middle of his leap, his feet
flew out toward the steamer, and he dropped
into the bay like a load of hay. A small boy
who was fishing from the wharf dropped his
pole, splashed Into the water, and towed the
i fat man to a pile, where he clung till a boat
i man pulled him out.
"My boy, you saved my life," he ex
claimed, enthusiastically, as he kicked the
dog and tried to wring the water out of his
shotgun. "Let me reward you."
He thrust his hand Into his clammy pocket
and fished out a wet ten-cent piece. "There,

FEW HOLD THE SECRET.
Manufacture of India Paper Is Not
Likely to Become Universal.
St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
The marvelous Oxford India paper
was first introduced in 1875. Since then
it has revolutionized the Bible and
prayer book trade, and It is now used
for all the more popular devotional
books throughout the world. In the
year 1841 an Oxford graduate is said to
j have brought home from the far East
a small fold of extremely thin paper,
' which was manifestly more opaque and
' tough for its substance than any paper
then manufactured in Europe. He pre
; sented it to the Clarendon press. The
late Thomas Combe, who had only re
cently been appointed printer to the
university, found it to be just sufficient
j for twenty-four copies of the smallest
Bible then in existence —diamond 24-mo.
—and printed an edition of that number,
which bore the date of 1842. These
books were barely a third of the usual
; thickness, and, although as much as
'< $100 apiece was offered for them, no
copies were sold, and they were present
ed to the queen and other distinguished
All efforts to trace the paper to its
source were futile, and as years rolled
on the circumstance was forgotten. But
early in 1874 a copy fell into the hands
of Arthur E. Miles, who showed it to
Mr. Frowde, and experiments were at
once set on foot at the Oxford univers
ity paper mills with the object of pro
: ducing a similar paper. The first at
! tempts were failures, but success was
i achieved, and Aug. 24, 1875, an edition
of the diamond 24-mo. Bible, similar In
i all respects to the twenty-four copies
i printed in 1842, were placed on sale.
i This was the first Oxford Bible pub
| lished by Mr. Frowde. The feat of com
pression was looked upon as astound
! Ing, the demand was enormous, and be-
I fore very long 250,000 copies had been
j sold. The paper when subjected to se
vere rubbing instead of breaking into
holes assumed a texture resembling
chamois leather, and a strip only three
Inches wide was found able to suport
twenty-five pounds without yielding.
The secret of its manufacture, It may
be said, is known to only three living

LADY'S SHIRT WAIST.
Our illustration shows one of ths
very latest creations in shirt waists,
i made of pink and white lawn, with
detachable collar and cuffs of white
j linen. It is certainly one of the daln
tlest garments produced this year. The
, front is cut with the usual
stitched closing which distinguishes a
waist of this sort, and may be fas
j tened with studs or tiny pearl but
| tons, as preferred. A rather narruw-
I shaped yoke both back and front is
1 a distinct improvement on the ordi
\ nary shirt waist. The front of the
'■ garment Is also very full, while the
back is made with a slight amount of
j fullness to give the desired flatness to
the shoulders. A draw string run in
j around the waist keeps the gathers in
'. place and makes the garment easy to
j iron. The sleeves are in the bishop
j style, co much admired this season.
j They are finely gathered into the arm
size and finished at tlie hands with
stitched wrist bands, to which are but
toned the novel turnback detacfiablo
j cuffs. Percales, chambray, cheviot,
i grass linen, Swiss, dimity, Persian
; lawn, wash silk, silk gingham, etc.,
| are appropriate to this design.
