Ne\v York Mnil and Express : Among tUo presents which Emperor William received ceivod on liis birthday ono of the most remarkable ones was a poem by the queen of Houmanlii. In a hundred short verses Carman Sylva had described the chief incidents of the soldier's lifetime , She had , moreover , copied it out herself in lior own hand on white parchment , beautifully ornamented by corn-flowers. When there was no kingdom of Uomania in existence she had laughingly said : "I do not want to marry unless I can bo queen of Houmanla"andasso of ton happens - pens , the caroless.thoughts of youth found their accomplishment. Kunninp down the palace stairs at Berlin ono day her foot slipped , and she would probablv have boon killed but for 1'rinco Charles , of Hohenzollorn. who saw hot danger and caught her in his outstretched arms. When lloumania chose him for ruler ho clamed the princess for his bride. Dur ing the Uttsso-Turkish war she wore the uniform of the Hed Cross , and as a nurse helped to soften and asBiweo the milter ings which war inevitably urines in its train. At the close of the struggle Plevna had given a royal throne to the prince and princess , and their crowns were made out of cannon captured from the cneniy. _ j Girls of Honduras. Atlanta Constitution : On the outside of the windows are heavy iron bars , which have a decidedly prison-liko ap pcarancc. These servo a dual purpose licsidcs being a protection in times of revolution , they are also a protection to tbo Bcnontas. "All the lovemaking is done through -these bars , as the young ladies are very closely guarded in Honduras. They are never seen alone , always being in charge of some elderly chaperone. " "Aro the girls pretty ? " "Some of them are , but I don't think they compare to our American girls. They are of Spanish descent and have regular features. Most of them are bru nottcs. " "How about the natives , the Indians ? " "Tho natives are brown-skinned people with coarse , dark hair and with bettor features than Ethiopians. The men are bis , strong follows , rather industrious as a class , turning their attention to mining and mechanical work. By industrious , ! lucanthat they work hard enough to earn a living , but as they can live on 1 ? cents a day that does not mean very stu- vendous labor. The climate is delight ful , enabling them to sleep out of doors If necessary , and they livd on rice , dried beans and corn bread. " Woman In Wall Street. Eleanor Kirk In Lawrcnco ( Mass. ) American : Thcro was a nice little tilt in Wall street a few days ago between a man and his wito , both speculators , who wore unfortunate enough to have the name initials. Mrs. E. G. 11. bought some stock unbeknown to her lord uniimastor , but the fact was divulged by a brother broker. Thinking to help his wife out of n bad scrape , the gentleman ordered the account to bo closed by moans of a tolo- grniu signed E. G. B. The lady , who.cx- cecdingly perspicacious in the matter of speculation , and who had received some Valuable" "points" to sustain her rosolu tlon to hold on , was naturally much dis < turbcd to receive a notification of closing from her broker , and immediately ad vanced upon the bulls1 stronghold. f The husband and wife met , Greek and Greek sure enough. The upshot of the nfl'air was that my lady lost $100 by her husband's interference , But she im ft- mediately reinvested and sailed away I ran * " ' with pennants Hying , having warned her broker to nay no attention to docu ments not bearing the prolix Mrs. to the signature. The mania for speculation scorns to be increasing among women. A member of the stock exchange told the writer that his lady customers were far * less nervous than men , and while they A were more cautious about largo invest ments , they wore seldom troublesome , and as n rule their judgment seemed su perior to that of men. Lmilwig'a 7.OOO Brides. Paris Letter in Chioago Times : The young kingLud\vlgof ( Bavaria ) was that at the height of his romantic famo. His ideally handsome likeness was to bo scon everywhere , and everywhere you hoard talK of his pootio melancholy , his romau tic spirit and his confirmed colibiicy Naturally ho became an object of intonsa interest to sentimental young ladies. 1'rosontly , among the other absurd tnlos that were told of him , there went abroad the story that ho spent most of his time in wandering about his kingdom in dls guino. Ho haunted shady lanes and ro maptic spots , seeking for some fair maiden who should bo his chosen bride Well , this silly tale was believed and so thousands of hearts to fluttering. Each maiden wondered if shn would bo his choice if ho chancml to meet her under the lime trues. And she hesitated to plight her troth to her villagu lover unli she should have a chance to meet the king. v So it came to pass that in the village o Dortoldshofon , in the romuntio mountah region of Soutnorn liavaria , the maiden formed themselves Into a sort of sister hood. They pled god t hcmselvc.s toe.tel ether not to marry u ntil they were sure the king hod passed them by. Each waste I.V" to wear his likeness constantly next her bosom , and each was to choose for her lelf a secret bower where tit ovontldo sh 'ftktould ' await hii coming. A more fool ifth fcchcmo , probably , noror was devised Btrlhc silly brains of love-sick school girls. But more than score of Her toldshofcn maiden * entered Into it with too zeal and devotion of nuns. The lame of this tlstnrhood spread to other villages , to towns and cities nay , to Munich Itself. Huitlo wenches and the petted beauties of princely palaces alike caught the inad disease. Within a year Cot less than 10.000 young women , all through Bavaria , bad taken upon thorn- telves the "vows of I.udwlg. am ! were waiting for the king. la time roany of these girl * imagined Uie * had tx en ecn and passed by the - slog , afld.Uius freed froan their vows , as- ccptcd humbler husbands. Others grow tired of waiting and. broks their vows. Still others waited and waited In vain , until all other suitors had passed them by , and they are waiting still and will bo waiting all their lives. Bnt as the ranks of the original sisterhood were thinned now recruit ? were added , and the "brides of Ludwig" were still counted by thousands. It is estimated that there were no less than 7,000 of thorn at the time or liis suicide , When the news of that tragedy became known they forth with put on mourning and called them selves "tho widows of Ludwic. " Many of them took solemn vows of life-long celibacy as a token of faithfulness to his memory. Among tlicso latter two of the most de voted wcro the young baronesses of Munich. They constantly were thn deepest mourning , secluded themselves from all social pleasures , and drove thomselvcs Into confirmed melancholy. Every week they went to Starnburg and throw carlands of llowcrs into the water at the spot where the king was drowned. Finally they determined to share Ills fate. They arrayed themselves ns brides , even to donning veils and orange blos soms , rowed out into the lake to the spot where ho was drowned and throw them selves into the water. Their bodies were found next day , clasped in each other's arms , and with portraits of the mad king next their hearts. Women who Get Out a Newspaper. Park Region Pioneer : Let it co out to the world just as far as our resources can send it , that every stroke of work ( with n slight exception to bo named ) done in the i'ioncor ollicc last week was done by f ur women folk ? , namply , Mrs. Hathbun , her sister. Mrs. llowo , and the Misses Mabel and Hirdio Hathbun. The per formances including Job work on both presses , the working ofr and rolling for the paper , the lifting and cleaning of the forms , otc. The slight exception referred to was the working of ono copy of the paper ( for himself ) by Will Day. Wo be- licvo that no ono will venture to charge that any of the work was in oll'ect inferior to the average of country printing ollice.s , and , indeed , we think It even nicer in porno particulars. I'nttlcontocl Irrepressibles. Buffalo Courier : The book canvasser has a heart as well as a tongue. One of those potticoatcd irrepressibles managed to got the Aroundcr by the ear the other < Iay. Of course , there was no need of his buying any books , so ho ofl-handodly asked her how 3. ho , was getting along any way. She replied that she was getting along pretty well for an unprotected female - male of twenty-seven summers. By the way , any young woman who confesses to twonty-sovcn birthdays is uapablo of tolling the truth in otlior directions. Being - ing further pressed , or rather questioned , she said that she had no difliculty in can- vassinc with men of middle and elderly age. They generally wore content to talk straight ousincss. "But how do you succeed with young fellows who talk love and nonsense to you. " "Ah ! 1 have a heart ; and when I approach ono of those susceptible youngsters I put it on ico. " It was not necessary to ask whether eho over put her tongue on ico. Honorific n Woman With Children. Chicago Journal : When Mmo. do Stael asked the Emperor Napoleon what kind of woman ho considered most valuable to the empire , the little corporal wounded the sensitive feelings of that distin guishcd personage by sententiously replying - plying : "The woman who has the most children. " Thn spirit which prompted such a reply has evidently found temporary ary lodgment in th breast of an Illinois Central railroad surburban conductor. The other day , while I was coming into the city on that thoroughfare , an honest- looking woman boarded the train at Forty-third street with seven small chil dren of various ages. When the conduc tor , clad in n new suit of blue , mailo resplendent - splendent with brass buttons , sternly de manded her ticket , u blush of coufusiqn swept over lior honest countenance ns she fumbled vainly m her pocket for her nurse , which she had left at homo "I haven't any ticket , sir , " she meekly re marked , the look of confusion growing deeper as she observed the glances of the passengers ; "I loft it homo. " The con ductor glanced along the row of chubby- faced boys by her side ana said : "Are .you the mother of tlioso seven children ? ' "Yes. sir , " she replied. "Well , " contin ued the conductor , "any woman who has done ns much for her country as that can ride on my train for nothing. " And the conductor loft the car , followed by the applause of the passengers. The Apple of Our Eye. Now York Graphic : And why let me ask , should a woman take it so seriously to heart if her brain do weigh live ounces loss than a man's ? So do her fectl So do her hands ! Bnt if she makes it up in her heart nobody thinks the worst of her for it. Really , I think it is selfish of a woman to want the best and moat of everything. She has the majority of the good looks in the world , and of the good times , too , I will warrant ; and it is quite her own fault if she does not get the ma jority of all the love. She has the pretti est clothes and she gets thn most candy , and she has rot'Aa and violets hcapea upon her from year's end to year's cud if she is good and lucky. Ijlko Three Rnsos on a Stem. Torrington ( Conn. ) Register : There was born in Foshon , on March 20 , 1789 , a triplet of girls who made ono of the most remarkable records known. They wcro SibylS\rah : and Susan Hurlburt.childrcn of Gideon and Ann ( Bench ) llurlburt. For the great period of eighty-seven years this triplet remained unbroken. Sibyl dying first at that ace , in Juno , 1875. Her wedded name was Luddington. In October of the next year Susan ( Mrs. Grinucll ) died at the ago of eighty-eight. Sarah lived to the ago of ninety-live , dying on January 11,1833. Hnr wedded name was Bushnell. These sisters looked so much alike , particularly Mrs. Grmnoll and Mrs. Bushnoll , that up to seventy- five or eighty years of age it was dilUcult for the most intimate friends to toll them apart ; oven then they would mistake ono another among themselves. A Good Word For Needle-Work. London Queen : Sewing machines have revolutionised the working world , but when I see , as I only too fromicntly do. intelligent and otherwise woll-oducatcd girls of 10,13 , aye , and older too , so Ig norant of plain ncodlo-work that I would not care to uuo a pocket-hand kcrchiof of their hemming , I do not feel quite sure that nil innovations are improvements. A lovely young doutrcFS of divinity , or ot law , or of medicine , may be a very bu- witchinc or fascinating personage , a potent evidence of the march of intellect , but it may bo permitted to grandmammas to doubt if n beloved and loving wife , a sweet , devoted mother , skilled and deft in all woman's work , bo not , even though innocent of any tongue save her own , the bettor of the twain. But the world is wise enough for both , I have heard my own mother say that when she was seven she were an Indian muslin of her own embroidery at n ball given by her par ents on her birthday. A Plucky Houiewll'eon the It oof. Chicago News : A Hoscorumon , Mich. , woman who was trying to put nut a lire on thu roof of her house was blown from the building by a high wind and her arm was broken. In spite of her sufferings she climbed to the roof twice afterward and put out the lire. When it was all orur she fainted. I Six Widow * on Bis Farm * . Pjttsbnrg Post : Six widow * lire on six ad joining farms in the town of Yenanao , Pa. , and , what ii more remarkable.they are all Hendersons , being the widows of the Into HendeMoa brother * Thomas , Samuel , Andrew , Stewart , William and Aloxaudcr , _ I10NEV FOR THE LADIES. Hurt bathing Is no longer fashionable , Bonnet strings are very short , v\hcn any ore worn. Uoadcd passementeries are worn on dressy frocks. The tight cent sleeve will soon bo a thing The Frances Cleveland turban Is the favor ite small hat of the season. The sleeve with a puft from the elbow to the shoulder grows In favor. U Is not considered good tnsto to wear much jewelry In very warm weather. Now is the time to cover sofas , cushions and chairs with lace scarfs and tidies. All line luxurious pleasure carriages are shod with India rubber tires lu England. The prlnco and princess of Wales always ride In vehicles with India rubber tires. The bicycle for gentlemen and the tricycle for ladles Iscry tashlonablo In New Jersey. Flower necklaces with ends falling to the waist ot the bodice are coming In vogue for summer festivals. The white molro sashes worn with white frocks nio fastened In front with white enamel buckles. India rubber break blocks arc the proper things with which to grip a wheel so as to prevent noises , Jars or btrnln when stopping a vehicle. The latest craze In fancy work Is modeling llowcrs In gutta-percha paste. It In not a very recent Invention , but It has only recent ly been popularized ns fancy work. The latest 1'araslan addition to white toil ets Is a paiasol made of silk and covered with many line plaltlugs of silk mull. The handle is gilded. Very charming white gau o fans complete these costumes , the sticks being of ivory and flights of gold buttorilics being worked across the white gauze In the bullion thread. There are many now ana some very eccen tric sleeves sent on thy the makers of fashion this season , all of which shows the tendency to abandon the old favorite , tight coat sleeve. For park riding the correct wear Is the high bell-crowned silk hat , but for the country , lady riders prefer the round-crowned derby or the jockey cap made o the material ot the habit. White stockings are worn with white suits and low pntenMcallier ties. The stockings are of silk and cmbioldcrcd over the Instep with yellow silk. The rage Is for costumes of whl to anil gold. For rough riding over the country now habit coats of heavy stutl are shown by our best tailors. To these , in addition to the seams strapped like a covert cdat , are seen bright scarlet ( English pink ) waistcoats. I'alo blue Is \vondoriully decorative color on a green lawn , whether useil for flower vases of blue delft , or for painted seats , lattices , or any of the ornamental work put on lawns or in the garden , or blue flowers. Wltu these white and gold costumes nro worn long cream-whltp guilts do Suede embroidered In gold upon tbo back , and wide white Lezhorns trimmed with huge bows of white silk mull'and loops of gold-colored ribbon. The coaching capo of the season covers the shoulders and reaches to the waist. It Is made of checked , barred , or small plaid tobacco-brown hoincsoun , with a high collar nnd small tabs at the throat of seal-brown or daik blue velvet. Thn long journey this summer is or should be made In ono ot those long ulsters of Eng lish homespun , with a cap to match , which mo furnished by tailors , or by the tailor cutting - ting and fitting depaituiouts in our best re. tall dry goods nouses. Tno taste for shades of heliotrope Is on the Increase. The value ot this color in drc.ss has never betoro been properly appreciated. It is discovered to be singularly becoming to almost every kind of beauty , blonde or brunette , pale or rosy. A new fashion in gloves Is a gant do Suede which Is of a deep , soft rodicalied sang dc bccuf , with the stripes between the fingers of wluto kid. Others In heliotrope are made In the same way , and the latest addition In the color of gloves is the tint called honeysuckle. Ualnyeuses In trained gowns are no longer fashionable , though they are still added to short dresses for nousp and car rlago wear. Distinct trained petticoats with many lace- edged flounces sewn Into the back breadth are now almost completely taking their place. The trams of summer bridal dresses are frequently made detachable and of rich satin or brochc , while the entire under dress is ot light eropo or gau/.o or lace over satin , the bodice being of the stuff of the train. The dress can thus bo converted Into a danc ing trock. Caps made lust Ilko a cricketer's are much worn by English women when driving in the country In a clog cart , for tennis , yacht ing and rowlng.and the young women living In those pretty Queen Anne cottages in the Oranges , Now Jersey , affect this English stylo. it Is quite the fancy to make the sleeve below the elbow of velvet , and tight lilting as a clove , while above that point ft Is of veiling , silk , or whatever Is the material ot the dress , and made to form a graceful sag ging putt' with pleats stitched clown about an inch or two inches from the artr.holo. After all the sailor hat of rough straw , with a rather wide brim turned up behind or a narrow ono straight all around , and trimmed with nothing but a plain blue , red , green , black or white band , with rackets or bats on the streamers , Is the preferred wear for tennis , croquet , and other out-of-door gomes. Dotted stuffs are so fashionable that even chemises and other pieces of uuderwear are made of line muslins and linens , dotted all over with red , blue , or lilac spots , and some times all three of these colors. Then the > okc , bands , and monogram are worked In the same colors , while line Valenciennes lace trims the whole garment. The newest color Is honeysuckle , which Is palo yellow In one llirht and pale pink In another , and Is first cousin to tbo beautiful tint that appeared a year ago under tbe French title of point do jour , and which Is called In English "dawn. " These yellow pinks nnd giecn are the popular colors after heliotrope , which still reigns supreme. Blue Is out ot favor for tno moment , except some shades of old bluo. The "white toilets" Imported from abroad are no longer dead white , but are really gray. A dress ordered from Paris a few- weeks ago was composed of a soft pale-gray silk. Uvnr this was a clinitl ot gray Mi tulle , then another layer ot lighter shade , and finally one of white , held In place by three ends of the three shades of tulle. Transparent French muslins ate exhibited with strawberries , laurel blooms , sweet brier roses and foliage , arbutus blossoms , and halt- opened buds scattered on vnri-colored grounds ; usually the backgrounds nro of pale tints a very delicate tea rose or primrose - rose yellow bulng a favorite shade , but the bright colored trults nnd llowcrs look very well against a background of olive , palo gold-brown or moss-green. There is n charming white crcpo do Chine with .small flowers over the surface. One of these was m.uUi with the under part of white surah with one deep puff of while lace coverIng - Ing It to the foot. The flowered crepe foil over this putt In a long , pointed apron fin ished with a tlouneo ot laco. and a second tlounco was cnirled across higher up. The crepe do China bodice was gathered In sur plice folds In front and a deep edging of lace came from under the folds nnd formed a sort ot plastron. This was finished oil' by a belt of led velvet ribbon coming from the side Bc.ims. The lace sleeves had two pulls divided by red velvet bands , The basque had n led velvet collar. FISH AND FISHING. A pickerel weighing three pounds was caught napping near tbo head of Sunset lake by little Ira Clayton , who landed Him with a stick. A devilfish weighing nearly one hundred pounds was caught by Daniel Oswald , of the Atlantic Highlands , while be was draining his lish pond. William A.

"I have been in Kansas City two years , " says he. "and the arts have made tremendous strides in that time.

Of the appoint ment , the Gosh City People's Palladium , a democratic paper , says : "Tho appointment of Colonel Julius PlugolV. of this city , to the honorable ofllco of clerk of the district court gives universal satisfaction. Though Colonel Plugofl'is comparatively a young man , and recently came to Dakoto , it is a re cognition of the young democracy in the territory , and declares that the hereto fore accepted belief that a man to obtain ollico in Dakoto must have moved here before the war and slept uudor a gun-wood and eaten jerked buf falo meat the first ton years , is dead and burled beyond the hope of resurrection.
