Interview With a Man Vfho Uets L'p Slen's tfashloihi'Iutes. "Wo nro always on tlio lookout for something new , " says a writer in The American Tailor. "Sometimes we get a suggestion or hint from a tailor or other person , and will work on it until wo .produce .something aceoptahle. After getting suggestions from tailors and others , and considering them , perhaps getting the views of a lady , wo go off and do as many newspaper men do , 'act as wo please. ' It is well enough to get the ideas of others , hut when we conio down to work we have to hess the joh and use our own ideas. It is one of those businesses in which there is no well-defined method as tex x originating styles. Observation and ' " - study are"required. . Formerly chang es were made in February for spring and summer styles , and in August for fall and winter , and the greatest changes are still made at these peri ods. The trade for the past ten years at least , has , however , not been con tent with but two plates per year , and * must nojv have them quarterly , many of the foremost demanding them monthly. The great changes are in the spring and fall , however , and the others are modifications or improve ments on them , 'not ; radical changes. The business of making style has in creased greatly within the past few years , and there arc a number at it , but the bulk of it is done by two or ' Ihted" houses. Of course , there are not HO much change in style deihaiided by gentlemen as by ladies. No , we do not get up any styles for particular sections of the couutiy. When we publish the plates they are sent to ev ery portion of the country , and some times it is found that one style will become popular in one section and an- otjier in an other section , but , as a rule , the tastes are as much different "In one section as another. There are about LTi.OOO merchant tailors of stand ing in the country those who keep a stock and are fully up to the times , having the best goods and with these thjj fashion magazines have come to be as essential as the newspaper. Such have we made that even Erogress luropertna are adopting our patterns. Formerly the representative merchant tailor might be said to be a sou of poor parents , receiving pattern-plates twice a year , and being fully satisfied. Now , however , the merchant tailor is not content with even the quarterly plates issued , aud it is surpassing those of other countries. They are now ever alive for.something new , to have not only the latest improvements in tools and conveniences for their business. Some wore content a few years ago with modest unassuming places of business , but now the merchant tailor has as line an establishment as any tradesman. " Why are Onions Difficult to .Raise ? Many of our readers seem to have trouble in raising onions from seed. The seed will grow , and so do the on ions , but they do not form bulbs. They produce thick necks and keep green and growing until cut down by frost. Many think this is due to cli- / mate. Possibly this is so , but in many r cases the trouble is more likely to be duo to some of the following causes namely : Poor seed , poor land , late sowing and. weeds. By poor teed we do not mean seed that will not grow , but ill-bred seed , seed grown from a crop of onions , the best of which have been sold and those not good enough to sell , planted for seed ! A scallion- ish onion , or one with a small bulb and a thick , immature neck , will produce quite as much and quite as good-look ing seed as 'the best formed bulb in fact more seed and better looking seed. Seed grown from scallions , or from thick-necked onions will be very sure to produce scallions. We can row down stream faster than we can pull up against the current. The onion has been brought to perfection by high feeding and careful selection , asd if wo would maintain what wo have gained , we must continue our efforts , but must not select the poorest omens to breed from. By poor land , we do not mean land that will not produce a good crop of corn or wheat or pota toes or grass. Land might be too rich for wheat , but not .rich enough for on ions. This same land might , without any mannre , become rich enough for onions. We know low mucky land where onions are successfully grown year after year without manure , but which at first produced a very poor crop. It needed the thorough tillage and freedom from weeds which all onion growers find so essential. Onion seed should be sown the moment the frost is out of the surface soil. The land should have been made ready the autumn previous. If this is not "done and you have to get the land ready in . the spring , you may get a fair crop of onions , but can hardly expect a full yield. Even if everything else i fav orable , if the onion patch is not kept free from weeds , you will be pretty certain of getting a liberal sprinkling of scallions. To a certain extent , rich land and fredoni from weeds hav-3 the same effect ; both are favorable tu rap id growth. Onion roots spread out verv little on the surface : they strike straight down. This is probably why land that has been thoroughly tilled or \ : heavily manured for years is best for onions. The fertility .has had timu to get down towards the subsoil. Amer ican Agriculturist for April. The Mistress of The White Hongs. In looks Miss Cleveland reminds one of Anna Dickinson , perhaps be cause she wears her hair in the snrne style. Yet there is nothing mauxish about her , and in private she is rather too modest than otherwise. Her voice is clear and her articulation distinct , making- her a fine speaker. She has given frequent lectures at the Elmira Female College , which have been very popular with the young ladies. Her name is found in the last catalogue in the faculty as lecturer on mediaeval history. The country may congratulate itself upon having so intelligent and public spirited a Chiistian woman in the White House. Evangelist. , . . Mr. Jamec Slat en , of Orange county. North Carolina , has a lemon which weighs six pounds tnd ten ounces and measures twenty-five laches hi circumference. -y Curious Payment for Land In England. Gloves of various kinds were fre quently presented in service for lands. Thus , two farms atCurlcoats , in York shire , paid "tho one a right hand , and the other a left hand glove yearly ; " and some lands in Elmesalo , in the same county , were held of the king by the service of paying at the Castle - tlo of Pontofract one pair of gloves furred with fox stem , or eighteen pence yearly ; " while for the manor of Els- ton , in Nottingham , were rendered two pairs of gloves , together with a a pound of cummin seed , and a steel needle. Needles are mot with several times , but one instance must here suf fice where "Roger , for some time tailor to our lord the king , " held lands in Hallingbury , Essex , by paying at the king's exchequer "one silver noodle yearly. " Still more curious is the service for certain lands in Rode , [ Northampton , which consisted in * finding "one horse of the price of 5s. atd one sack of the price of 4 l-2d. , with one small pin , for forty daj's. " Probably this "small pin" was similar tb the skewer noticed above , and was used to fasten , or attach , the sack , which mayhave been employed to car ry fodder to the horses. That the horses were tolerable cared for , even in those days , seems to be proved by the fact that the manor of Cherburgh , in Dorset , was held "by the service of one horse-comb , price 4d. , to be paid yearly. " and that certain lands in the hundred of Losenberg , in the same country , were held "of our lord the king , by the serjeautry of finding a certain horse-comb , or currycomb , etc. " Among other miscelfaneous services by which lands were held may be mentioned certain instances " of "hose. Thus , Cottington. in Not tingham , was held by the service of presenting to the king a pair of soar- let hose yearly ; Eldresfield , in Wor cester , was held by rendering to Ro bert , Earl of Gloucester , hose of scar let on his birthday , and Henley , in Warwick , was held by Edmund , Lord Stafford , by the service of . ' 5s , or a pair of scarlet hose. Battle of Flowers. Among the features of the-carnival at Nice this year , writes a correspond ent , was the Battle of Flowers , which toolcplace on Friday , Feb. 13 , and was repeated on the following Mon day. Precisely at 2 o'clock'on the first day named the gun at the chateau gave the signal for beginning the hos tilities and by 3 o'clock the battle had really begun. Vehicles richly deco rated with llowers , fruits , ribbons , straw , and other decorative material parade the Corso and bouquets fell thick as hail upon the crowds , which extended in a thick mass from one end of the course to the other. The people on foot responded with vigor to the attacks of the riders , many of tham having provided themselves with large baskets full of small bou quets , in the manufacture of which a whole army of florists had been en gaged during the whole of the preced ing day and night. There was a con stant shower of violets , mimosas , lilacs , pinks , anemones , roses , and , in fact , every flower to pe found in bloom at the season in that portion ol France. Some of the vehicles were remarka ble pretty , and among the most noticeable ' able was' a victoria entirely hidden with scarlet pinks , even the wheels being covered with these flowers. An other vehicle was a cart covered with verdure and vegetables and occupied by three pretty peasant girls , who threw leeks , carrots , cauliflowers and even large cabbages as well as llow ers among the people. There was of course a great variety of costumes and the battle was a scene of anima tion and beauty. Senator Vest's Dog. "I have a dog , " said Senator Vest , ' who had just he'ard a precocious crow story , "who is very sagacious. One morning he watched intently while a negro boy blacked my shoes. The fol lowing morning ho came to where I was sitting with a blacking brush in liis mouth. You may not believe it , but that dog got down on his haunches , spit on my shoes , took the brush in his teeth and rubbed away like a house on fire. But I must admit that he did not get up much of a polish. One Sunday , while I was living at Sedalia , this dog followed rue to church. 1 noticed that lie watched every movement of the preacher. That afternoon I heard a terrible howling of dogs in my back yard. I went out to see what was the matter. My dog was in the woodshed , standing on his hind legs in an old dry-goods box. He held down a torn almanac with one fore paw * and gesti culated wildly with the other , while he swayed his head and howled to an audience of four other dogs , even more sadly than the preacher I had heard that morning. " The narrator of the crow story "threw up the sponge. " Memphis Appeal. Foes of the Oyster. A bill has been introduced in the New York Legislature , at the sugges tion of Fish Commissioner Blackford. for the destruction of star fish , which are said to be one of the most dan gerous foes of the oyster. The Dill authorizes a reward for star fishes taken in quantities from any of the oyster-beds in the waters of the State , the reward to be at the rate of 25 cents per bushel when the number of star lishes taken amount to thirty or more bushels at any one time. Boston Jour nal. THE hunting dagger which belonged to Col. James Bowie , and which has served as a pattern of all subsequent bowie-knives , has been sent for exhi bition to New Orleans. It is a for midable double-edged weapon , with a liorn handle and a curved blade fifteen inches long and an inch and a quarter wide at the hilt. Like Dr. Guiliotin , Col. Bowie unwittingly gave his name to an invention that has earned for itself a rather unfortunate reputation. "Where do policemen ijo when they die ! " nsk'ed little Flossie. "To heaven , dear , " re plied the father , tenderly. "Oh , no , papa , they don't , " quickly replied the little philoso pher , "for mamma says its always day there and nobody ever deeps. " TTMIBIIXEKT TOO LIGHT. Healing frith Capital Bancal Who Bit * . Swindled Far and Wide. Washington special : An Omaha man has caught a cunning rogue. Peter Flnnegan waa convicted in the criminal court yesterday of violating section 5480 of the revised statutes by sending a letter through the malls with la tent to defraud. This is the case which occurred here in October last and waa fully published at that time. Flunegan , represent ing himself to be Alice A. Baker , formerly of Omaha , Neb. , wrote to Mr. Clark Woodman , of that place , asking for assistance. He would start off in this manner with a four- page letter : "I beg leave to address you and hops to meet with your sympathy. I am a poor gir1 from Omaha , Neb. , in trouble , and knowing you to be a good man I come to you , and I do bone to make a confidant of you. and that you will never in life have cause to regret it. I fiot deceived by a young man in Omaha , and 1 came east to Baltimore to hide my shame. The Rood LortJ called my baby to himself , for which I am ever grateful. Lord help me , I am now so fixed I am not able to work. " After writing in the same strain he wou'd wind up by saying : "Lord , look down on mo ' tbls day of my'life , and keep me and guide me in Thy way. I hope that you will answer by return mail. "Yours , unfortunate , in Christ , "ALICE A. BAKER. " Inrcponsehe would receive a conciliatory letter and the money asked for. Quite a num ber of letters In response to those hu wrote were found on him , showing that the busi ness was a lucrative one. Tue scheme resort ed to was novel and well planned , and worked well to his advantage. The accused Mnp an expert penman was enabled to carry on the de ception without detection for a long time. His detection and arrest was effected by Mr. Clark Woodman , of Omaha. He received one of < lre piteous appeals and was asked to direct his answer to an address iu this city. He sent $20 to Riggs & Co.'s bank and requested them to have the police discover whether the case was a meritorious one or not. The. investiga tion resulted in the arrest o Finnegan and his wife. After the case had teen made out , Detective Edelui , after reporting the circumstances con nected with the arrest , stated that when he got Finnegan at headquarters he adrnitteil writing the letter , and said that poverty led hitn to commit the act. He had a wife and several small children and did not know what to do for them. The detective said at that time he thought this the only case against Finnegan , but since then a number of other letters had arrived , one of them containing $25. These were read in evidence. The following was from a whole sale eroccr of Omaha , Neb. : "DEAH ALICE : I received your letter this morning , and was glad that you had reeetveJ my letter , and that you appreciate what I have done , as I feel that I have helped a poor girl out of trouble one that will icpay me some way when the opportunity offers , if one ever should present itself. You ask us to scud you $20 $15 to redeem your trunk and $5 to get you some little things to cat. Now , if you are coming second-class you cannot get a sleeper , but If your ticket is via Chicago or St. Louis , I could send you a pass to cither place so that you could take a sleeper from there , as you will no doubt be tired out when you reach there. I could not get anything from Balti- 'inora ' or I would send it so you could come all the way first-class. To help you pay foi sleeper and meals I have sent j ou $25 , as ] know vou will have a hard enough time travel ing any way. I hope you will get home once more and that you will always find iu myself a true friend. As I wrote vou I may go to Chi- ago and St. Louis this week , and if I meel you there would look after your getting home. While I am sending this money without an } Eersonal acquaintance with you , I feel it will e appreciated , and rest assured your secret will be known to none but ourselves. I hope you will write me as soon as you get this , and when you get home I expect to see you , if not before. " ; Another Omaha man , a bank president , sent $15 with his card. With the reading of thess letters the government closed its cas > c. The defendants announced that they would have to accept the case as presented by the prose cution as they had no witnesses to call , and the argument ensued. The jury were out twenty-flve minutes and returned with a ver dict of guilty. Mr. Phelps , in suing for clemency in the sentence , read letters Jrom different persona showing that Finnegan had been a temperate , hard-working man , and had tried to make an honest living. The counsel appealed in behalf of the wife and two children that the court would impose as licht a jail sentence as possible , la'iing into consideration the fact that the prisoner had already been six months in confinement. Finnegan , in reply to an Inquiry from the court , said that he came here from St. Louis , and had never made a dollar out of the busi ness , the letters with money in them comina after his arrest. He had tried hard , but could not obtain work. Judge McArthur said that he was disposed to mitigate the sentence in the case , and after commenting on the fact 'hat a man's wife and children are always the sufferers in such cases , he was sentenced to tiiree months in jail. Finnegan was evidently surprised at the lightness of the sentenc-2 , and for a few seconds ends could not speak. Then he burst forth thanking the judee , while the tears rolled down-hls cheeks as he spoke , and in closing said : "May the merciful judge in heaven meet you with the mercyyou have extended to me. I thank you. " He was then reconducted to jail. A. TRIBUTE TO GEX. GBAXT. Gen , Stale's Recollections of tlte Suffering Hero. Gen. Deale , of Washington , one of the old commander's dearest friends , in speaking- Gen. Grant , says : "I have been a very inti mate friend of Gen. Grant for fifteen years. In all my daily companionship with him , at home or abroad. I never heard Gen. Grant make a remark that could not be repeated with propriety before a roomful of ladies. His character was wholly pure and free from guile. As to the reports that he drank to ex cess 1 ought not to refer , for they are sense less and untrue , butl will say that during the who'e period that 1 have known him in rid ing to and from my farm near this city two or three times a week , in dining at the same table , in walking the streets of Paris until 2 o'clock in the morning for ainuseinent have never seen him when he wasn't as clear headed as you and I are now. His even disPosition - Position was something wonderful to me , and have seen him tried almost beyond hu man emiurance. Ho never cursed and swore at people , and ho never lost control of him self. He was always able to do what he con sidered right. I saw him once while at a white heat of vexation in the library at the white house put personal prejudices and wishes aside and do his duty without a ques tion. He had been abu < ed and slandered by a certain person to such an extent that ho could only recognize him r 8 a personal enemy. The question arose whether that person should be nominated to the senate or not for a position. I knew all the circumstances and said to Gen. Grant : 'Whatareyou going to do about it ? ' 'Do about it ? ' he repeated ; "I Will send bis name to the senate. He has de served his appointment by his services to his country and no personal ill-feeling on my part shall prevent his obtaining what he deserves. ' He sat down and signed the nomi nation and it was sent to the senate at once. He wa generous in the extreme. It was a1- ways difficult for him to refuge requests made of him. I cou d tell you instances of his great kindness of heart which you could scarcely believe , but little things will show this trait as well na preat ones. When Gen. Grant had been a visitor at my house , chil dren would overwhelm him with requests for his autograph. Often when we would return home late at night from some reception , tired and sleepy , on the table would be n pile of autograph albums a foot or two high. Mrs. Beale would say. 'Come , general , it is time to retre. You are tired , and need rest. Don't stop to write in those books to-night , butwait till morning. ' 'No , ' Gen. Grant would replv I'll do it to-night. These books belong to little tlo children , and they -will stop for them on their way to school in the morning , and I don't want to disappoint them , ' and he would write in every one. " Judge Given , of Des Moines. rules that un der the Fritz decision he Khali place injunc tions on buildings where intoxicants are kept Cost Her Weight In Gold. Mrs. Jesus Castro , an aged Mexican , lady , now residing at American Flag , in the Santa Catilina mountains , is per- . Imps the only wo nan living who , liter ally speaking , ever cost her husband her weight in gold. It is said that in the early gold-digging days of Califor nia she was a resident of Sonora , in which state she was born and raised to womanhood. When about the age of 17 a paternal uncle , but a few years her senior , returned with his compan ions , golden-laden , from the El Dorado of the west and became desperately en amored of her. Ho sought her hand in marriage and was accepted , but the church refused , because of the near relationship exist ing between them , to solemnize the marriage. Persuasion being iii vain , he tried the power of gold to win the church his way , and succeeded only by the payment of her weight in gold. She at the time weighed 117 pounds , and against her in the scales the glitter ing dust was shoveled. Her afiianced husband still had enough of this world's goods to provide a comfortable homo , and they were married. They lived happily together , and she bore to her husband eleven children. In the course of years he died and she married again , Mr. Castro being her second husband. The above is a fact and not fiction , as living witnesses can prove. Tucson Star. The Power of Niagara Falls. These wonderful falls have often filled the hearts of those who regret to see power wasted , with a grief alto gether too deep for tears. This sorrow generally finds vent in a pathetic statis tical account , showing the amount of the loss. For example , taking the height of the falls to be ISO feet , it is estimated that 1,105,000,000 cubic feet of water fall over every hour. Exclu sive of the velocity with which the water reaches the brink , the power of the falls is calculated to be about .5,000- 000 horse power , or nearly one-fourth of the whole steam-power of the earth. Accordingly , four such falls as those of Niagara , working day and night , would uepluce the work now done for man by the steam-engine. By the time the power of the existing falls has been fully ntili/ed , perhaps the three other falls may have been discovered. The Gatherer , in CasscWs Family Magazine for April.
