' CHICAGO , January 4. The Chicago ,
4Burliagton Qulncy declines to enter the
n'BYT wchtern railway alliance on the terms
accepted by the lour other Iowa roads. This
\ & the rt'Hult of two dayo' conference he-
t'vvecn all the roads In the Interest , which
clotted thin afternoon. The esblon to-day
' continued from 10 a. m. to 2 p. m. , all the
roads 'being ' represented by their general
manager * . The proposition advanced to
Burlington was that It should Join the new
pool on the paine tcrnia aH tbcNorthwoHtern ,
but this General Manager Potter , of the
Burlington , said he WHS prepared to abso
lutely decline. Thla emergency had appar
ently been guarded agalnHt , and the Bur
lington wa8'r nie ted toptiitcon what terms
' it would negotiate. A counter proposition
-was then BUtrpcgted that , In order to main
tain rates and prevent war , two dMinct
pools be formi-d , covering the competitive
business on the line df tht Union Pacific
road as far webt as Denver , the "Union Pacific -
" * cific "and it * four present ulties , the
jSbrthwustcTi , Bock1 Island , Milwaukee
& St. P.ml and"Wiibash , lorming one
pool and the Burlington and its
. branches forming the tecond pool. To
UiJa the Burlington.was > not prepared to return -
turn an answer , and an adjournment wag
taken on the 17th hist. , to receive the Bur-
llngton'R ultimatum. In case the Burling
ton Bhould decide to negotiate on the terras
, outlined , it Is tntejl that its negotiations
with the Union Pacific will necessarily be
' prolonged , In > lew of the numerous points
touted by the two linen as direct competi-
tors. As a result of the conference , It is
now positively shown that the fixed policy
of the Burlington management Is
against forming n part of the new
alliance and signing the twenty-five
yearn' compact. In this view theposblbillty
of the board of directors of the Northwest
ern and Wabash failing to function their re
spective roads bus been raised , but so far as
it has been jpo ible to ascertain , the facts
are not deemed possible that any of the four
roads In the allltmoe will withdraw. The
likelihood of the Burlington entering Into
any compact with the new alliance , even on
the proposal for a hepnrato pool > is deemed
very uncertain. Aa far as official expres
sion is willing to po , the Burlington , in the
event of a new alliance beiug maintained ,

the temporary capital of the young re

was enacted , was improved out of ex-

such advantage as in this voluntary
surrender of his commission just as
complete success crowned the long
struggle in which he had been the
most conspicuous figure. His address

A famous-general and archieologist
was one day walking in Central park ,
when he encouatered a little girl who
seemed in great distress
Upon asking the cause of her trouble
he found she had been hunting all the
morning for a four-leaved clover , bqt
had hunted in vain.
"And why do you wish BO much to
find one ? " asked the great man.
" .Because I have been promised 50
cents-for it. "
"Little girl , " said the great man , as
he seated himself in the grass by her
side , "I will give you what you seek. "
Plucking a three-leaved clover , he
cunningly attached to it a four leaf by
means of an almost invisible wire
which he drew from his pocket. Smil
ing sweetly upon the child , he said :
"Now , run with this and get your 50
cents ; then come back and we will di
vide "
"But , sir , this is not a real four-
leaved clover , and "
"Tut ! my oliild. Is your friend an
American ? "
"Yes , sir. "
"Then run and get your money , for
! Americans enjoy being humbugged.
I They prefer quantity to quality. But
I should they discover the fraud that is ,
the restoration you must stick to it
through thick and thin , and black and
white , that the leaf belonged there

The little girl went , but she soon re
turned with 50 cents , of which the great
man retained 49. Placing the remain
ing penny in her chubby hand , he said ,
with a friendly smile , "Be virtuous and
you will be happy , " and , turning away ,
he strode proudly across the lawn and
disappeared within the recesses of the
Metropolitan museum.

"The art of dressing , " said Mrs.
Florence , the-actress , ' to a St. Louis
Globe-Democrat reporter , "may be con
tained iu a nutshell corsets and I
want to tell yeu one thing about them.
Finn fitting corsets will make the poor
est ngure'good , and "without them the
most elegant drees is as nothing and
loses its effect ; They should be meed
loosely iro'mi > thc top ' to- the bottom ,
evenly perhaps a little tight at the
waist what the French call cambre.
Then the underwear should be or silk ,
and if tint'ladies should dress us I wish ,
they would'only wear one skirt and as
little ijnderclothing'as possible. I have
seen women -wear five or ? ix skirts.
Above all , no .bustle the draperies 'o -
the drees can be arranged as a tournure ,
and do , away with that obnoxious arti
cle of the dress , so stiff and so ugly.
Combinations of colors for the street"I
don't believe in black is-the most dis
tingue dress for that purpose , or else
some rich dark color , with gloves and
half toi match , and , ' for car
riage wear , shoes also. But let
every woman ba a law unto
herself , and decide after studying her
complexion and figure without regard
to others , what srill best suit her pecu
liar style. Muscovitch is the artist who
makes all my dresses. He brings mft
a number 'of pieces of material , and I
choose tho'color which best suits me ,
leaving the ganture to him , with the
proviso that there shall be no hip trim-
fining. Ladies inclined to embonpoint
want very little trimming of .any kind
either on the skirt or corsage. The
tigfet fitting sleeve puffed high on the
shoulder is very becoming to a thin ,
S9rawny arm , shortening it and giving
ita round appearance. For young
girls there is nothing like cjeam and
fight blue for ball dresses , and for
elderly ladies , garnet , a pretty shade of
mauve , etc. I have seen beautiful toil
ets ruined by a-poor walk and a want
of art in carrying a train gracefully.
The hair should be simply arranged ,
but flowers and feathers 1 think abom
inable in the coiffure of young girls. I
'like plumes on , In dies of unoi-rtain age ,
fastened by a diamond aigrette , but tor
young girls , no ; they wear a cr wn of
glory dn their own hair an 4 nothing
else. Unless shoes and stockings are
in , unison with the rest of the dress it
is spoiled. I have ' seen elegantly
dressed ladies' stick out their
feet , showing rough , badly
ma'de shoes , and the beauty
of their costumes vanishes
immediately , like Alladdin's pal
ace in the rtjpht. A cream satin
slipper'and stockings are the prettiest
for evening wear , the hose run through
with beads- Black slippers and hose
should be 'beaded if worn in the even
ing. An essential point is where a lady
is going to a reception , ball or dinner ,
to prepare her toilet toe day before and
not waituntil , the last moment , when
tfiie will make her appearance haggard
and harrassed by the haste she made.
The fashion of wearing evening dresses
sleeveless , and cut in a deep point back
and front I think 'very pretty , and at
any entertainment for young or old ,
the throat should be left open in some
way , in V or square. If you have a
thin arm tie : vknot of ribbon below the
shoulder to lill it out and wear long
gloves. If.'the elbow is round and
dimpled it should be left bare. I should
suggest to every onewith , a yellow skin
to use oriental cream with velontine
powder ; they are both harmless and
beautify .the complexion. I put on very
little paint as I dislike it , and I gener
ally use 'Les fleurs'des Indes , ' a pale
tint of rouge and azure for darkening
the eyes , which I get from Fay , in Lon

How the Qarrnan Boy is Schooled.
German Letter in hlcnao News.
From the hour of his birth until he
has reached the mature age of 6 years
he is under the constant supervision of
his parents or his nurse. He plays as
children play all the world over , but his
fames and pastimes are not rough ,
rom the moment his sensitive mind is
capable of Joeing-trained , he learns obedience -
dience and politeness He is not 4
years old ere he will bid a stranger
good-day or good- veiling , rafsing his
little hat and making his little biw at
the same time. ' Between 4 and 6 he is
allowed to niingle freely with the chil
dren of "the neighborhood , but his play
ground is always circumscribed according - '
, ing to the size ' of the garden in the rear
cf the block. At 6 the law compels his
parents to send him to school.
From that time on he is a person of
some responsibility , for his leesons must
not bo neglected under any. circum
stances , unless his health proves him to
'be unequal to his tasks. His school
hours for the first year are not long , but
noon-remaining 2:80. Then he
brings home his lessons for the morrow ,
which , with the assistance of his parents ,
he. must prepare to answer for , on the
next day. The second yeur of hia
school-lite is a little more severe. The
schools open at G in summer and 7 in
winter , and long before children of his
ago are awakened in America , { the
street * are full of little ones hurrying to
the different schools. This early class
is dismissed at 8 and 9 o'clock , and the
children are then expected to assist
their mothers , or , as is. more frequently
the case , from 10 years of ago upward ,
they go to the great factories or work
shops where they are apprenticed and
learn a trade. Indeed , the school hours
are fixed thus early in order that the
children may not only receive an edu
cation but also learn how to make a
living and help their parents to keep
the wolf from the door.

Hartford Courant.
The old inn known as the "Brass
Bull" , at Thompson was burned last
week. It'was the oldest house in Wind-
ham county , a large wood-colored edi
fice 'of the "lean to" period , which
greatly antedaated the Revolution , hav
ing been built hi 1710. Over the door
was a miniature bull of old-fashioned
hammered brass , which was also swal
lowed up in ihe names. In the days of
the then great New York , Hartford and
Button turnpike it was a changing sta
tion forlhe stage horses , and when the
stage route vanished at the approach of
the railroads it feebly held its own as a
summer resort. It had little diamond
window-panes , wide fire-places , and
outer doors cut in halves , after the orig
inal New England style , which buffered

a breastwork against the onslaught of

source of the old building's ruin , for
the continual heating of the stone

the flames burst out and consumed the

Thinness Long Drawn Out.
Jillwnukoo dycciol 23th.
Isaac S. Spntgue , the livingskeleton ,
who is 40 yenr < old and has been re
duced by atrophy to 40 pounds weight ,
said this afternoon iu regard to a ru
mor that he had given his body in the
interest of science to the Harvard med-
ic.il college : "Yes , the story is true ,
and all arrangements have just been
completed. 1 have agreed that when
I die they shall have my bodjr ;
they will firot cut it open and make a
post mortem examination to find out if
possible why I am so thin ; then they
will put the body in alcohol and place
it iu the museum of the college , where
it will remain , but I'm going
to need it myself for the
present ; they can't have it till I get
through with it. My lx dy will be pre
served in the museum theie as that of
Calvin Edaon in the Albany Museum.
Edson died at the age of 45 , weighing
only forty-five pounds. The doctors ,
when they cut him open , found that his
thinness was caused by the narrowing
of the thoracic duct , a trouble with
which other members of his family were
aftV.cted. His face and neck were ema
ciated like the rest of his body , but
mine are not , so my thinness is "prob
ably due to something else. The phys
icians pronounce itjto bean extreme case
of progressive mu&cular atrophy. It
has been going on for thirty years ,
while the longest other case on * record
is that of a man who died after having
the complaint for ten years. "

time , probably in 1856 , when her hus

beach considering which presidential
nomination to accept , overtures coming
to him from the democratic party , which
had anticipated the strength of Fremont
in the pending republican convention.
Mrs. Fremont t-aid that the democratic
nomination meant success while the re
publican uomination undoubtedly meant
defeat , but with the principles General
Fremont sustained he decided to take
tile republican nomination.

Scene * Around tUo Melbourne OraaJ

By noon the hill above the grand
stand was thickly covered with a pic
turesque forest of humanity ; * it looked
still in the distance , but was as unrest-
ng as a bee-hive when approached.
This was the democratic place admis
sion two shillings and it was decidedly
the best point from which to see the
course. It is an artificial hill built by
the committee ( they could afford it on
their receipts of 50,000 a year ) , and
there was plenty of room on it , even
when occupied by some 20,000 people.
The babies could freely roll down ita
turfy sides while their mammas were
lost in admiration of the costumes on
the lawn below , where they intend those *
babies shall promenade with the besc
when they grow up. The scene from
this hill was woiuhrful. Beyond the
high-priced lawn and inclosuro was the
great "flat , " on which an ever-moving
multitude stretched away into the dis
tance until they looked like industrious
ants. But when the bell sounded they
massed themselves in a twinkling along
the course and became an organic
whole a long curving anaconda.
When a nice was over the momentarily
motionless monster broke up again into
bits and was soon distributed over the
W hat can I say of the grand stand ?
Probably U0,000 people were therein
or thereabout , mostly iu costliest cos
tumes some of these imported for the
occasion at a cost of from 100 to 600.
Tlie wonder of it ! Credulous travelers
sometimes tell us of Hindoo jugglers
who conjure from the floor a bush
which clothes itself with blossoms while
the spectator ia gazing , and it seems as
it some magic had evoked this Victoria
Ilegia , whose petals were brilliantly
arrayed ladies. The dresses were finer
in general effect than in detail. But
criticism was disarmed when one saw
the happy , beaming and generally intel
ligent face of those so finely decorated.
It was pleasant tojsco so many people ,
evidently of humble origin , who had
grown rich enough to indulge their
tastes in a matter of so much moral
importance as dress. There is some
thing to be said for that remark of a
Frenchwoman , that "the conscious
ness of being perfectly dressed affords
a satisfaction not to be obtained from
the consolation of religion. " Thataort
oi satisfaction was visible in every fem
inine face on the grand stand and its
lawn , and what ia anybody else's pref
erence compared with theirs ? The
whole race course , its environment and
arrangements , can only bo described as
a work of art. Their completeness is due
chiefly to the Secretary of the Victoria
Racing Club , who tells mo.hj . knows
nothing whatever about horses and
racing. If this gentleman could only
succeed in reducing or regulating ( if it
is incurable ) the betting mania , he
ought to go to England and teach them
there how to make a race an enjoyable
holiday. Epsom knows nothing of
these careful preparations of tables for
luncheons , or of the regiment of boys
that remove all bottles and refuse from
the sward in large baskets.
I had nearly forgotten to say that
there was some racing yesterday , too.
Several times I managed to turn from
the human attractions and observed
small islets of variegated caps and sash
es floating around the pear-shaped
course , dark streaks of steeds beneath
them , foam of dust in their wake.
Each horse and rider were fixed in one
Centaur form , and it was not without
beauty. But even the strained'sinews
were less pleasing than the continuous
murmur that accompanied the muffled
drum-beat of the hoofs , rising through
all the scale the single voice of the
hundred thousand to break at last in
a wild cheer to the victor. In that
cheer I joined inwardly , but it was with
elation at beholding such a vast con
course of human beings , with shining
faces and glud voiclj , lorming together
a magnificent picture of human health ,
wealth and happiness framed , in the
scenery of a fresh and prosperous land.
