interrupted Mr. MuIIiattan. with a smile.
'n liy, there is never auy foundation to iny
stories. Tlierein lies my power. Almost any
body could write a story with the foundatioi
to build ou; it requires genius to construct a
novel without any foundation in fact what
ever, to evolve it all out of your own head as
spider draws the web from its own Insly. I

Muinnser flusioc! Overdone.
A prominent hotel man said to me at Long
Branch: "I think the summer business has
bM?n overdone. If you' count the number of
hotels now in existence all over coast, mount
ain and stream, and compare them with the
number we had at the cIoko of the war, you
can easily see that guests do not grow pro

prides. Nobody has a piece of ground

tavern and expects to sell bis farm

they can carry passengers to the seaside if
they provide some sort of accommodations.
They have put up some enormous buildings,
some very handsome in style, wherever tliey
can run a track, and consequently this coast
business- is overdone. It will hardly be twe
years before there is a railroad along tbe en

The -Vcw Beauty.
Miss Chamberlain, "f Cleveland, woo is
figuring in" London as a osauty, is described
by Eliza Wethersby, who happened to meet
her in a gathering of the prince of Wales
set, as about as pretty as ten per cent, of all
American girls. She bad rather a captivat
ing way about her, ."oddly combining a
spirituelle, Marguerite air with the peculiar
dash and confidence common in Yankee
irirU." It was evening, and tbe light was
electric, so that every bit of artificiality waa
made clear oy the glare. Her face waa
painted like wax work. The red of her cheeks
stood out like daubs. Her features were
small and regular, ber figure tall and well
shaped, and ber ben ring free and nncon-
(traiued. She was dressed in good taste
white crape costume embroidered wifb silvw.
"I beard ber in conversation with the
prince, tbe actress adds, "and abe was de

Fh New Form of Luxurious Trar
The New York Tribune of flatnrduy afnted
that the Mann Boudoir C.ir romi auv haa

table ltT at night, they are readily con
vertible iuti luxurious day parlor can, a
bidicatioiM of sleeping arrangemmits disap
pearing. This is a desideratum, the long dis
tances traveled by the same car iu this coun
try rendering it indispensable that it l u
only a good night car, iu which regard our
nalaee cars ctrtalnlv loavo much to Isa de-
iiil. The boudoir car has at cither end
vestibule, fioiu which cjen naqwtively
laiiies' and gentlemen's dressing rooms and
closetx The lavatories are supplied with
both hot aud cold water, while the closets are
real water clow-Li. thus oreventiiiK the dis
agreeable odors incident to tho system in 1
iu this country. Connecting the vestibules,
and Khut 1 At from them by doors, is a com
niodious itirridor numinsr nloiicr the side of
the cur. (.)s-niiig off this hallway by doors
are .several i-omiuirlments or boudoirs, some
ariuiigeil for two and some for four persons.
liy ifciy tlje-M rooms are simply pretty cabins,
with hih, .irehc.l, clear ceilings, large plate
glas-i windows and one or two luxurious sofas
with Inirh soft l acks and cushioned arm rests.
Th sofas are athwart the car, aud uuder
tbem nml Is hind the inclined backs are car
rier I tin? mattresses and bedding. Thus tho
thief wighl is near the Coor, while the enor
mously heavy palace car bed, hinged up in
the top of the car, rendering it unstable and
toi .heavy and shutting otf half tho window
Sluice, is entirely dispensed with. At night
the back of the sofa, hinged at its ton to the
cross partitions, is raised to a horizontal jxjsi
tion, where, automatically fastening itself,
it forms tho upjicr bed, tbe sofa seat becom
incr tho lower U-d. Thus, with the addition
of bedding, two wide beds are made up from
each sofa. The boils are longer than those of
tho aluce car, and the head is made up next
to tho corridor partition, bringing the vital
parts of the body in the middle of the car, a
safer position than along the side by the win
dows. In beds so arranged across the car
the sleeiier avoids the rolling motion cxy-icrr
puced in longitudLial beds, while the head is
removed from the noise incidental to close
contact with tho car wall.
Tlie ventilation of the car is by a novel
system, without tho dangerous draughts and
smothering dust from the windows in the
elevuted roofs of American cars. This roof,
a great top weight, and an element of weak
ness in construction, is superseded by a sim
ple high dome, or Norman arch. Abundant
air is takn in at one end of the car by
funnel and forced through an ingenious
filler, freeing it of all dust, after which it ii
discharged into the heater room. In wintei
the purified air is thus healed, while in sum
mor tbe heater room is converted into a hugf
refrigerator with j-e. From this room tbe
air passes along a flue inclosing tho beatei
pipes down tho corridor, and is discharged
through registers opposite the door of each
compartment, which doors, being provided
with slats or louvres, a.laiit the fresh heated
or cooled air in great quantities to the com
partments. lu each compartment are three
exhausting ventilators, which, while they
cannot admit air f 10m without, constantly
draw off tho air from within. All the air in
the car is changed every five minutes, ab
solutely without draughts or dust. The iin-
tiortance of good ventilution in cars cannot
It should lie mentioned that off the ladies'
vestibule is a two-place boudoir, always re
served for lailies traveling alone. In this a
young girl might journey across the con
tinent without escort with perfect propriety.
Connecting with tbe gentleman's vestibule
are a smoking room and buffet. In each coin
partmenl aro electric bell communications to
call tho porter. The chief feature of these
cars seems to le the vary desirable privacy of
one's borne or hotel attaiucd by the division
into compartments. Every traveler has ob
served the necessary exiosuro and incon
venience of dressing or undressing iu a
palace car; so objectionable is this that many
ladies doc line to travel in them. Again,
there is great annoyance at night by con
ductors, trainmen and way passengers pass
ing tit and fro I et ween the long lines of cur
tains, ull of which is avoids by the fully
partitioned corridor of the boudoir cars. The
entire interior of these cars is finished in
Amaranth woodwork, embossed with illumi
nated leather and French tapestry.
It is claimed that the dead weight of these
cars per juissengor carried is fully 15 per cent,
less than that of the palace cars. This would
be a vast recommendation of them to railroad
managers. Tiie interior partitions necessar
ily strengthen the cars against crushing in
accidents, and would greatly retard the pro
gress of lire through the car, which has so
often been the cause of fearful loss of life

'At the outbrmk of tho Franco- Prussian
war, Mr. liana en?ogod William Howard
Russell, thou of Tho Loulon TIuim, The
Times being perfectly willing that Mr. Rus
sell should earn I l5,uOC a year for giving out
bis letter in duplicate to a newKpaicr print
ed 3,000 milof away from The Times olllco.
"Mr. Ilussell, after accepting an engage
ment at .5,000 a year to write for The Huii,
wrote to Mr. Dana asking how ho should
send his letters.
" 'By cable,' was Dana's cablegram to the
distinguished military critic.
"Now everylsjdy knows that William How-
ami Russell's letters, whether from tho Army
of the Potomac or from any other point, will
average from li.iK) to 10,000 wonls, and Mr.
Rusboll, fui' I ing himself engage 1 to telegraph
so voluminously to 'a little two-cent nper in
Now York City.' undoubtedly said to himself:
If I have employers so enterprising it be
hooves mo to t.tir myself, and show tuoin that
I am worthy as much as their enterprise
would sccru to demand that I should l.'
And, by the force of habit, ho forthwith

though William Howard Ru;sell could crosa

of such a man.
" 'I nm glad to see you, sir. and welcome

" 'Telegraph to The London Times and Tho
New York Sun.'
"Oh! no! no! That would be giving in
formation to tbe enemy. I thought you had
come to le my historian of the war.'
"Tho result was, if a month after that Rus
sell had telegraphed a lino to either of the
two great journals by which he had been em
ployed he might jiossibly have boeii suspected
of violating the confidence of the king, lie

reporters to bo found in that c-ty, old them
to skirmish around the armies, accept no

to him every night in London.

"Doctor, aro not a great many teeth

tooth powders r'
"No; that is a most pernicious fallacy. I
wish all this world kne-.v tbe ti uth, that the
enamel of a tooth cannot lie vorn off with a
brush and any kind of tooth powder; not if it
were scrubbed five hours a day for 15" years.
aiore teeth are ruined by a rear or scouring
them than by all other causes put together.
The best way in the world to preserve a tooth
is to keep it higmy polishe 1; thou no foreign
substance adheres to it. Those adhesions and
gradual mstings are what destroy teeth. If
you wish to keep a piece of steel you polish
it. If you do not it will rust away. It is
precisely the same with a tooth. Ths only
danger that can arise from the use of the
harshest tooth-powders is that they may in
jure the gums, oon t ever use charcoal or
salt, for, while they are excellent for clean
ing, they are ruinous to the gums. Charcoal
is full of little, sharp slivers that get under
the gums or cut into them and cause trouble;
and grains of salt, you know, have
very sharp edges and corners. Cuttlebono
toothpowders are the best, I think. Bu1; by
all means keep the teeth clean and highly
polished. That reminds 1110" continued the
deutist, "a handsome and well-dressed lady
came here yesterday and wished her teeth
'fixed up.' I looked into her mouth and saw
about the foulest chasm I ever cazed into.
Why, it was worse than a sewer. I told her
would give her a prescription, and when
6he had used it thoroughly for a week I .vouid
see her again. The proscription was for a
tooth brush and a box ol powder. Doubtless
she was vexed when tbe druggist 'com
pounded' it, but it was what she most noedod,
'I liave heard that many medicines given
by tbo physicians injure the teeth. Is that
true, doctor V
'No. not to any considerable extent. Ill
tell you where that idea comes from. You
know,- when a pei-son is sick be is not so apt
to clean his toeth as when be is welL That is
one trouble; but a greater is thac the teeth
are uot used much. Kieli persons cat but lit
tle, usually; and what they do ear, is often in
tlie form of pastes or gruels that do not de
mand much chewing. Now, tho teeth are
like any other part of the person; if they are
unused they liecome soft and more subject to
the decaying influences. Put your arm in a
sliug tor a mouth aud tho muscles and whole
member will become soft and ilabby. So
with a tooth that is not used for some. time.
Now, when a tooth isgrowingsofter each day,
and it is not being cleaned as often as it was
when it needod cleaning less, of couse it rap
idly fails. This is why the medicines are
chargod with the destruction."
A Journalist in Bronze.
A statue of the late Charles do Young, edi
tor of Tho San Francisco Chronicle, killed by
the son of Mayor Kalloch, of that city, has
liecn cast in bronze, says The Philadelphia
Times, by Charles F. Heaton, from a model
by F. Marion Welli, of San Francisco, and
is now on exhibition at 2So. 5iw orth 1 welfth
street. This statue was made for the
brothor of the doceised, Mr. H. de Young,
the present proprietor of The Chronicle, and
meets the approbation of every critic who
knew the original in life, the fae and ex
pression being especially commenced. A he
statue is seven feet eigat inches high and
represent a well-built, finely proportioned
man in the prime of life, standing easdy,
with the weight of the body thrown on the
left foot, while the right is slightly advanced.
Tbe right arm Ings straight and th hand,
holding a pen. r. sts open on a pedestal cov
ered with manu.-'cripts. The left arm is bent,
bringing the hall-opened haud forward, up
ward aud near the waist, ma!; ing a tine dis
cui'sivc gesture. Ti.e fojo, with side whis
kers and mustache, Is clear cut and full of
expression. A frock coat fills eoily frooi
the shoulder an 1 is as gracefully haudied as
possible, considering the fsw liues of beauty
which such drapery gives.
