mutt tWIdly pirtray your sentlmonts, you
then hare a mission to perform. You ex.
patlato on'some vlrturo, folly, beauty or
ideal version and theory, and your auditor
rlsws the work and expresses admiration and
etteem, ami fnon your name will bo legion
among artUu. One worthy creation hat
often been the mean of bringing out an
artist, and after once admitted, all effort
will henceforth be lauded and praledl
If you are seeking enumeration for time
pen! then cbooae to be the Illustrator for
nagaitnea and the press, or the Industrial
and technical deelgnlng. Thesotwo line of
work are Inadequately r IllUd and on that
account the very best prieis are paid for good
Material. A first claw illustrator can de
mand and will receivable or her own prlco
for an article offered If It la merltloua. It
ust be concise and to the point, and eketuhea
are all made charactetUtlo In black and
white. Of thi class Nast, Kepplor of Vofc,
ami Carlton of Lift, are only three of , others
who have made fortune by their wit and
pencil, caricature of tua noteJ men and
current topic of the age. Keppler tells u
that "fame and fortune' do not prevent the
caricaturist having faU trouble no tea than
the rest of u. Ho take the men In politic
or fame and then be draw on hi Imagina
tion and exaggerate their prominent
feature or weak point, and for this work he
receive aa euormou salary." To be a good
Illustrator on mutt possess ganlus-a qulolc,
peiveptive ey, a keen and rapid ttroke, with
a lit of originality a a necessity.
Designing a a Competent.
In deelgnlng If one ha a little originality
and a good eye for combination, with a fair
knowledge of techntoaUtle of all the branchea
of Industrial manufacture, qnsmust at the
practical technical requirement ami not
alone theory of deelgnlng to succe). Our
lot I fortunately pact In nceutury which rec
ognises knowledge and the art a a moral
power, and esteem thorn not for their mere
acquisition and possession, but uy their prao
ttoal Influence. We already And manifest
laaprovement In design, and the Importance
of till canuot be overrate I, if w wUh to
retain ourv supremacy a a manufacturing
nation. We know that America will be able
to compete with all foreign countries, in
ornamental and industrial deelgnlng If we
but educate our youth. They (the youth)
oertlanly have the taste, the eye for coloring
and genlut, if they are but taught and the
faculties for same culiUf ted In efficient
schools of design, of which there are but two
or three m vogue now In the United Sates.
With n thorough training a student should be
able to excel In this the same as In other
nrnuobea. The wall paper, carpets and oil
cloths are soma of the designer's practical
work, as well as those who work In glass
ware, pottery, lacellneue aid In ihe textile
fabrics, such a sllrTsatjns, woolens cottons,
prints, etc. Restrictions of design are on
aHcoe, 04Mirawlat"cloth; aatnlkorchlet
vutmm, gmfamm, rwoon, iaw IKieni, wove
and printed sllan, decorated window1" shades,
and in fact all the woven and priuWd goods
and they are too numerous to mention. How
aver all of these If new, or aie a novelty In
tnelr way, twelve good pay. Architecture,
fresco pattern for interior decoration, carved
wood for furniture, sllvrrare,tc.,all come
undtr Hit same head,' and It the design are
1 roperly adjusted, colored etc, and readv
for practical use In the factories, they are
easily disposed of. Designing Is In itself a
compound of two brauches; mecahanlcil
science on the one baud and line art ou tb
other. I positively refuse to admit that what
can be done by man cannot with proper iu
atructioh,(ln advance) be done by women as
well! Oviialsiy "women are possessed pf re
ined taste,' a delicacy ol touch, originality of
ideas, a sons of fitness of same and the re
quisite patience to carry forth and work out
the ideas and plaus. And If she ha provided
neiself with a practical, rather than a theoret
ical Instruction, she Is sure to succeed ana
otteutlmes even excel her male competitor.

Won FOURTEEN AND EIOIITEEN.
The tartan velvets will bo often em
ployed to brighten up old silks and
woolen gowns, nnd in that way fill a
useful place which they could hardl)
gain by their beauty nlono.
I noticed n protty dress for a young
miss of about fourteen that was of wood
brown camel's hair, with gamp, bell
and upper slcovcs of mahogany brown
velvet, liordorcd with narrow bias bnndt
of tartan velvet, In which bright red
and green predominated. Tho dress wat
exceedingly pretty nnd girlish.
It is very easy to say that this or thai
will bo the favorlto fashion in dress
goods or in hats, or in any other of tht
garments that mnko femininity so nt
tractive, but it would bo very mislead
ing, for tho fact is that everything if
fashionable that is on tho market, ami
each different thing will bo a favorit
with peoplo who llko that sort of thing
The choico is varied enough to sut
everybody's tasto and pocket.
I was looking at somo silks. Thero I
saw somo rich and heavy fabrics thai
recalled the fairy tales of "silks thai
would stand nlono," nnd thoy nro superl

laVgo flowers in natural colors brocmh i

with great bunches of lilacs nnd tlitli
loaves scattcrod carelessly over tho sur

dropped thero. On somo of tho shiniii
green leaves wero drops of dew cunning
simulated in whlto silk. Other pattern,
hnd n ground blue or dark gray witl
clusters of roses or jasmines and ou
soft mossy green had hnndfuls of piul-

Then there are silks moire with prett
llttlo figures or dots thrown all over th
surface, and there nre silks where thf
body is iridescent, with plain brocadt
dots or other pretty fancy apparently
scattered over it all. There aro rep
and plain bengalines nnd no end ol
failles, and an unlimited amount ol
gros grains and lighter silks; so man)
that ono is almost bewildered by thel
variety and beauty, and they aro kc
cheap "to what thoy used to be."
Velvet gowns will also havoaplact
this fall for'strcet, for visiting and fot
carriage, but they should bo black
very dark blno, prune green orstoni
gray, and fur trimmed or having a very'
llttlo handsome beuded trimming. The
Russian jacket to tho waist belongs by
right, nnd a hat to, match should be
worn with it.
The richest of all of tho populat
now wool goods it tho Biarritz cloth.
This looks liko heavy silk with all iti
gloss and bloom, but it is bo soft that
yon can crush a yard of it In one hand,
and it is durable

We' talk of colors and see plenty of
them, but after all the handsomest nnd
most elegant dresses aro tho black ones.
No lady looks us well in anything h1m.
Thoro Is variety of black goods this
season that surpau any I havo evor seen

each nlco dress is to bo lined with glace
silk as before, whlto muslin petticoats,
with lots or soft little ruliles, will be the
newest. Tho foundation will bo of lawn,
with llttlo mill ruflles set above each
other, and two at tho edgo of tho lawn
skirt. Tho mill rulllcs will novor be
starched, but bo left soft and fluffy to
remind ono of the daintiness gf tho stage
skirt, which derives its chief charm
from those very ruflles that flutter like
n branch full of whlto butterflies. Any

A POPULAR INNKEEPER.
The I'ronperuit Career of John II. tlralie,
ClllCAOO, Oct. 20 .lolin D. Drake is
ono of tho best known and mo'st pros,
porous innkeepers in tho republic. Al
though he Is only about sixty ho is one
of tho old citizens of Chicago, having
seen It grow from a thriving town ol
100,000 peoplo to a great city containing
moro than 1,000,000 nnd second iu im
Iiortuuco on this continent to Now York
alone. Ho is n native of Ohio, to which
fact partial Buckeyes might nscribo Ills
success, having been born at Lebanon,
not far from Cincinnati.
In his early teens, after receiving a
fair, practical education, ho set out for
what was then tho Queen City of the
West to seek his fortune. He arrived
thero with fifty cants nnd a letter of
recommendation from Tom Corwin in
his pocket tho substanco of all his
worldly goods. Ho speedily got n situa
tion in tho old Pearl street house, kept
at that tlmo by Colonel John Noblo, and
remained thero until it wns pulled down
to givo plnco to n tnerenntilo block. He
had, young ns ho wns, already shown
sound judgment in selecting tho hotel
business, and went from tho Pearl
street into tho ofllco of tho Burnett
House, then newly built.
Thero by industry, nttcntion, energy
and politeness he won tho good will of
his employers nnd the traveling public,
becoming a geuornl favorite. Ho now
recognized Chicago as tho city of the
future and determined to cast his lot
there. At tho old Trcmout House he
mado himself so valuable that ho was
soon offered n proprietary interest, and
grew to bo its ruling spirit.
After tho great tiro he was invited to
take charge, on very favorablo terms
to him, of the now Grand Pacific, and
proved himself to bo the right man in
tho right place. He has mado money
rapidly ever since, and, being an excel-

lent business man, has turned his oppor
tunities to financial prottt. Now n mil
lionaire, with many interests and largc
influenue, ho is still tho working pro
priotorof his hotel, and is to be found in
his private offlco from 0 to S o'clock
dally. He is a director aud stockholdet
in various banks and corporations, and
ono of tho unofficial guides of the des
tinies of tho marvelous city.
Everybody knows him in Chicago.
He is constantly sought for advice ami
help, and is a loader in most public
movements. He ascribes his extraor
dinary success to his devotion to busi
ness, nnd to pursuing one business
nnswervingly. In a career of nearly
fifty years ho has never had any finan
cial embarassment, oven of a temporary
kind, and has nover failed to meet all
his engagements. Ho has met all sorts
of men, nnd is acquainted with any
number who. have filled public places
and controlled events. Consequently
he is full of information on a variety of
topics, and is often drawn ou by news
paper reporters to detail his observations
Ho bus attended all tho presidential
conventions that havo been held in Chi
cago, and has had a wide acquaintance
with eminent statesmen nnd politicians
of the past, including Lincoln, Douglas,
Seward, Chase, Thurlow Weed, Gree
ley. Conkling, Seymour, Garfield, John
C. Breckinridgo, Crittenden, nnd John
Brough. He has been repeatedly urged
to publish his reminiscences, but he has
declined on the ground that ho has not
time, and that he can deavo that task
until he is really old.
