The latest fad is for the woman to re
tain her family name after marriage ia-sJe.-'d
of taking 1 1 at of her husband.
Kwry woman has a perfect right to do
this if she want s to, because there is no
law comjulling her to adopt t Hat of the
man she marries. The style has been
started anew by seme of the atronger
minded women. This alone is
suiVieient to make it the proper thing for
Anglo-Americans. In England, however,
it is necessary for the woman to advertise
th" fact that she is going to retain her
maiden name. In this country a man
may take his wife's name instead of her
tnking his, but it would probably be bet
ter to have the change legalized by a
court or legislature in order to prevent
any trouble in relation to property or in
heritances. Wouldn't it be belter to call men and
women by their proper names:- The
(Quakers do so, and there is nothing offen
sive nor suggestive of undue familiarity
about it. Tiieyv do so from principle
rather than to beodd. They say: "Call
no man master." Mister is but another
term for master, and was originally used
by common ieople when addressing their
superiors, or those whoio they .served.
As a people we are opposed to titles sug
gestive of social rank. Our term "Mrs."
is merely a form of the Knglisli term mis
tress, which was and is now an undesir
able title when used in certain connec
tions. Usage has changed this somewhat,
yet it is an unnecessary prefix to the
name of a lady. Pittsburg Comniereiai

One sees everywhere throughout India

animals are as gentle and tame r.3 re

the chicken and duck, all seem ab-ol-.itt-ly

are frequently seen whirling In great
circles in the cities for several minutes,
and then swooping down upon certain
housetops. Often several flocks unite and
fly together .and then separate as people
do in dances. I have seen this several
times, but on? day w lieu on a minaret I
saw men on different houses waving llags
and directing the flights of those birds,
and by a motion calling them down to
them. I thus one ttay zavr six different
flocks flying at once now mingling, then
separating and all done under the orders
of their respective owners. They are
kept in a sort of poop in the house top,
and are thus sent out for eercisp. After
living for a half hour or so, they are fed
and quietly go into the coops. One gets

The following morning it was July 3 all
tho prisoners of tho "right solitary" refused
to eat their food. When tho warders, at tho
order of the director, opened the cells at 3
o'clock in the afternoon they found the food,
placed there in the morning, untouched. An
excellent supper, consisting of fragrant
Louilion, delicious roast lieef and fuiiiing tea
and cukes food the prisoners had ulreaJy for
gotten the taste of was placed in the cells in
the evening, but they were not to be tempted,
and took no notice of it. The same night
they were joined by tho "lefts," or the occu
pants of the "left solitary," who hid by sonio
means learned of their action and of tho
causes which prompted it. Seeing that tho
prisoners wi re in earnest, tho director, at.
midnight, ordered ull fonl and water to be
removi-d from tho cells. "I'll make them
beg for food," he thought. Ho did not sleep
that nigl.ur Ho stolo oa tiptoo from ono
wicket hffle to another, watching what tho
prisoners were doing. They lay on their
pallets, gazing ut the coiling, or talking to
oich other by knocks, and in the twilight of
the cells their bodies reminded tho director
of hobgobliuj. Grim silence prevailed in tho
ICarly in tho forenoon a delicious breakfast
was brought into tho cells, but the prisoners
exhibited no desire to eat it, and it was taken
back to the kitchen. At noon a luxurious
dinner was served, ami although it remained
untouched, it occurred to tho director to
leave it all day in tho cells. Tho voluntary
sull'erers threw the food into tho "parashkas."
In the evening tho same story was repeated,
with tho same result. The director ordered
Mishkia, Alc:;audi-ofr and CicianoIT to be
brought from tho "karzer" back to thoir cells,
hoping to reconcile tho prisoners, and that
tho threo men, touched by their pardoa,
would try and persuade the others to give up
their dangerous undertaking, but he found
he had made a mistake MUhkin, as well aa
Cieiaiiolf und AlextuidroiT, joiiiod their fel
low prisoners.
At a late hour of tho second "night tho di
rector, accompanied by tho prison physician,
went from cell to coll, begging and suppli
cating the prisoners to eat, reminding them
of their homes, fathers, mothers, relatives
ami friends, to whom thoy might soon re
turn, nilogizing for tho rudeness bo had dis
played when overzealous in tho performance
of his duties, and explaining that he was
merely a subordinate ollicial who had to
obey the orders from those above him. At
all the cells the director received tho same
laconic reply, "Grant what wo ore asking."
I:i the forenoon of tho third day the pris
oners wero all led into tho yard, where the
common prisoners and soldiers sat around
largo tables eating and drinking. The direc
tor thought that the sight of persons ealing
y.'ould induce tbo hungry to take fciod, but
they did nothing of tho kind, and were taken
bad; to tbeir cells. Outsido the prition walls
nothing was known of ail these horrors, The
direct- r gave strict orders to all soldiers and
warders to keep their mouths shut, and, fear
ing his wrath, they carried out his orders to
the letter. Tho serious character of the alTair
so frightened tho director that in the morn
ing of tho fourth da3 he dismissed all tho
warders whoso inso!"ni had the
pris:jia b, an gave orders to their successors
to bo as polite and gentlo as possible, Agaia
and ii.';ai:i ho visited tho cells, humiliating
hiias-.if before those whom he formerly
treaiel as locusts, and conjuring them to eat
and to live for the sake of their relatives and
friends, bat his eiTorfs were of no avail.
In tho evening vf the fourth day tho prison
priest, a low lived 113-pocrite, w;ent with a
largo cross in his arms from cell to cell, sup
plicating the prisoners to eat, in tho nama of
God, but his prayers and entreaties received
no attention from tho half dead sufferers.
Their condition that night was of a most do
proving nature. Most of them could 115
longer stand on their feet; some fainted,
Otiierrai4 vyntr.UtJyj an 1 special warders
had to watch at their l-eds' all 'night tit order
to prevent their sudden expiration. Tho
director did not sloep all night. Tho physi
cian and his assistants Lad never Lad such a
Luy time leforo. Fifty-eigLt men wero
apparently dying slowly lro:n voluntary
starvation. Ther touched nothing but water",
aad some also abstained even from this.
Tho sanio r.ight a conference, presided over
by the director, and attended bv the physi?
eian, tho priest, the oCiccrs of the garrison
and the head warders, was held at tho prison
cSce. The director delivered a mournful
speech, saying that he was tired of the duties
of his ofaee, that his ofUce would kill him iu
a few years, and that he was ready to resign
If Lis resignation would bo accepted. "Eut
what is to be done powr' he exclaimed, dra
matically. "I cannot grant their demands ;
it's beyond my power to do iL Up to tho
present time I still hoped tho fellows would
ehangfi their minds or break down and begin
to cat. For this reason 1 intended not to lee
tho governor know of this horrible affair.
Eut now I see they are in earnest. They are
determined to die. I don't want to be solely
responsible for their deaths, and I think it's
time to report everything to the governor
and let him act as ho thinks best."
All agreed that no other course was possible.-
under the circumstances, and a report
was gut up and forravdd immediately U
the governor of Khai koff. On the sixth day
of tho famine July 8 Councilor Soumtzetlf,
accompanied by the chief doctor of th.9
province, arrived at tho "eentralka." They,
too, began by exhorting the prisoners to take
some nourishment. Aceoaipauicd by the
director and the prison physician, they went
from cell to cell, arguing, begging and
threatening, but their efforts were as useless
as tLose of iha director and his assistants.
Oa tho seventh day the prison was visited
by a number of generals and the procureur,
or attorney general, of the province. They
received tho same categorical reply: "GranJ
o;ir demands. ' Seeing that nothing could
shake the resolution of the prisoners, and
fearing to wait any longer, the governor
ordered the director to capitulate that is,
to promise to f uiHil all their demands. As
tho prisoners had no faith iu promises of
Russian government officials, both the gov
ernor aud tho director had to sign a paper
obliging themselves to permit the political
prisoners to work, to receivo food from the
outside, to read all tho book3 permitted by
the state censor, to visit the prison church on
a Sunday named by them, etc. Thus, on the
eighth day of the famines-July 10 the pris
oners once again took food. Michael MalkoCf

Intention being to eventually become di
vorced. So quietly was the aflafr man
aged that none but their most intimate
friends knew that they hod disagreed, and
the acquaintances of the couple only knew
that the wife was visiting friends and
relatives in New York. In un evil mo
ment the young wife employed a private
detective to shadow her husband, daily
reports to bo sent to her. These rejwrts
were sent, and the wife was astonished.
She didn't have nny idea before w hat the
life of a club man might be. Then, woman-like,
she determined to win her hus
band back. She wrote hiia, the quarrel
was patched up, aud the pair lived to
gether again.
Their home was a happy one. The
husband forsook his gay companions ami
compromising associations of both sexes
and became domesticated. One night
thero was a knock at the door. The hus
band responded; it was a visitor for his
wife. When the lady entered the parlor
she recognised the private detective. She
had been foolish enough to write him two
or three letters, and these lie had, to
gether with copies of letters he had
written her concerning the private life of
her husband. The wife had paid the
agency by which this man was employed,
but this made 110 difference. What the
man wanted was a loan, and he got it.
He has solicited several loans since then,
imd has never been refused. In the mean

In the course of fifteen minutes' walk
on Broadway the other day a reporter
counted 200 women, yonng and old, with
hair ranging from a medium brown to
the darker shades which all but artists
call black. Only thirteen women were
passed who were of.theprouounced blonde
order. I hree of these were of the reddish
classes and the hair of two had apparently
been bleached. At the theatre, the same
evening, of fifty women within easy
range, six had fair skins, blue eyes and
light hair. They sat surrounded by a
bevy of dark women, who gave its pre
vailing tone to the complexion of the
house. Interest in the result observed
led next morning to a public school. One
class of eighty girls had eight blondes to
seventy-two nvernge browns and bru
nettes. Another of sixty-live girls had
sixteen fair haired pupils to fifty-live
standard brown bends and darker. In a
third class the proportions were seven
light to fifty muddy aud dark. The state
ment may bo hazarded that not above
8 or 10 per cent, of New York women
are blondes. Go anywhere where pretty
girls congregate and you meet tall, 'strik
ing looking figures with dark hair and
big, dark eyes. Is the blonde type disap

The funeral observances are very cere
monious, as plight bo expected In a coun
try where the worship of ancestors has to
long been a part of its religion, and the
graves and vaults are reverenced as sacred
places. They are usually only shapeless
mounds of earth or stone, near, which are
erected wooden stakes, eight or nine feet
high, with skulls aud horns of oxen fixed
or impaled ou the wood. These are ob
jects of worship, or at least of special ven

XJke a Lobster Salad.
The greatest drawback to living in a
rented house next to paying the rent is
that the landlord can paint it any color he
chooses. Two ladies, meeting, discuss
this grievance. "My house." said one,
"is a complete lobster salad. It was bad
enough, when the yellow walls and the
green blinds suggested Mayonaise and let
tuce, but the landlord has put some red
tubs on the lawn, and now we look gar
nished with lobster claws". And your
bonse is almost as bad. I saw it first on
a gray day, and it was just the color of
spruce gum. But yesterdav, in the sun,
