He says; "I felt so much better tbe

A PLEA FOR MOTHERS.
An Amtndmcnt Offered to the Advice of
a Woman Lecturer.
A few evenings ago a Boston woman
journalist, who writes the essays about
bookmarks, gluten bread, dress reform
cornets and the like for the woman's
column of a Sunday paper, read a lec
ture to a parlor full of Harlem women.
Her subject was "How to Bring Up
One thing that she insisted on was
that children should be taught to "do
things," to be prciared for emergencies.
"For example," said she, "I would
leacn a cnim wnat to do in case of a
fainting fit. I say to my girls:
" 'Girls, I am not much of a hand at
fainting, but if I do take a notion to
faint some day when you are about, get
me some water. Pour it on my head
and face. Cold water, girls, not hot
"I'm sure that if the unexpected
comes, and I fall in a fainting fit some
fine morning, the girls, if they happen
to be near, will know what to do and
will do it promptly."
"May I interrupt yon for a moment?"
asked a little brown haired woman, who
looked to be about fifty.
"Why, certainly," answered the lec
"Well, what I wish to do," said the
brown haired woman, "is to take issue
with you on this proposition of yours
that it is the proper thing to instruct
children what to do to their mothers
when they faint. On other points I have
nothing to say. Maybe you are right in
the general proposition that children
should be taught to do things, but as to
this matter I wish to utter a warning
word, to offer an amendment, so to
"I used to think as you do. I remem
ber as well as can be how I used to tell
my girls to do the very thing that you
say you told yours to do. I thought as
you do, that it would be a shame to
leave any person who should faint' in
the presence of my girls go without
proper care. So I used to say: 'Remem
ber, girls, to use water. That's the
thing when a baby faints.' -r
"Well, one day some one came to my
house and told me that a little boy had
been hurt in the next yard. I was al
most ill at the time, but just the same 1
rushed out to the scene. The little chap
was badly hurt, and it took me quite
awhile to get him in such a way that I
could safely leave him. But the time
came at last, and I started for home.
"When I was within about a rod of
my own house I grew dizzy and saw
stars and then fell in a heap in the
' "A couple of Irishmen picked me up,
each taking an arm, and dragged me
up my front steps and laid me out on
the piazza. Then they rang the bell.
and when my daughter Isabelle came t
the door one of them pointed at me and
said: - .
" 'Good avenin, miss, an is that yer
mother there, lyw all in a hape dead
fainted awayr ,
"Isabelle gave one look and then
called out to her two sisters, 'Quick,
girls, ma's fainted.' .
" 'After that the deluge.' Yes, that
tells -the story .v Isabelle got the ice
pitcher, Mary a foot tub and Kate a ten
quart tin pail. I consider it almost a
miracle that I'm alive today.
"Of course I'm telling all this from
hearsay. . I didn't know anything from
the time that 1 fainted until I heard
Kate frantically crying out: 'Water!
More water! Quick, Isabelle, more wa
ter!' and just after that one of the Irish
men saying, 'Be aisy," darlint, or ye'll be
after drownin yer ould motherf
"Wet! Well, that doesn't begin to tell
the story. I was soaked, and great
streams of water were running off the
piazza and down the stairs.
" 'You did just right girls, I said as
soon as I could speak. 'You did just
what your mother told you to do, but
don't do it again.'
"Then I got down on my knees and
wrung out my skirts as well as I could
and while I was in that position I could
hardly keep myself from saying, 'Oh
Lord, I thank thee that they didn't call
out the fire department.' .
. "Now, I've taken up lots of your time,
but I wished to make an amendment to
your proposition. What I would pro
pose is that every mother save her own
self from the danger of drowning by
saying to her girls when she bids them
pour water on 'fainters, 'Be sure my
dears to try the remedy for the first
time on somebody else than your own
dear mamma.' " New York Times.
Telling About It.
An old lady is said to have been asked
how to tell good indigo. "Powder the
indigo," said she, "sprinkle it upon cold
water, and if it is good it will either
sink or swim, I have forgotten which."
It was the same with Aunt Charity's
"Jest take a dozen of 'em no, a half
a dozen of 'em no, it's a dozen well,
raaly, I can't say, but it's either a dozen
or a half dozen and you put 'em in a
pailful no, a half pailful part full
no, it's a pailful no well, well, it's
either a pailful or a half pailful of
water and the good eggs will swim
on top no, the good eggs will sink
to the bottom no, that s not it
the good eggs will swim no, no, I
delare, I don't raaly know, but, anyway,
the good eggs will either sink or swim."
Horace Greeley once described a very
famous literary woman of the last gen
eration as "a great woman and a greater
bore. Her talk was incessant."
PATTI'S WONDROUS WARDROBE.
Her Collection of Kuieralds Puts to Shams
the Majority of Royal Oema.
Patti's wardrobe is something that
fashion writers rave over. At every
performance she of course wears the
neweat concert cobtume. In the opera
that follows she wears the dress requi
site for the part she plays. The concert
costumes are the productions of the first
Parisian milliner, and one may be sure
that the wily milliner, getting an ordei
from Patti, would exert himself for this
queen of song as he would for no crowned
Her jewels are the most elaborate
worn by any woman outside of royalty,
and even royalty's gems fade before hei
matchless collection of emeralds. In
some concerts Mine. Patti wears a cos
tume of pink and silver brooade, ovei
which is worn a delicate green satin de
imperatrice. With this costume sht
wears a dog collar of emeralds set with
diamonds, a bouquet of roses made of
diamonds and emeralds completely cov
ering the front of her bodice. Also
tiara, garniture and comb of emerald,
and diamonds. This bit of jeweled orna
ment is said to be worth ovei 50,000. It
is a peculiarity of Patti's that she will
wear nothing in the way of decoration
but what is absolutely real.
The jewel box and jewels in "Faust'
are her own, and the pearls are positively
real. Her courier, whenever she sings,
is on the stage, waits for madame in the
wings and accompanies her from the
stage to the dressing room that is, when
her careful husband, Signor Nicolini, i&
not around. He is very careful of hi
precious wife, and she is never on the
stage but that he is an intent observer of
everything that is going on.
Patti's passion, of course, is her appear
ance before the public. She is one of
those creatures who, without the excite
ment of public applause, could hardly
exist. The applause of the public is
positively meat and drink for her.
There is no debutante more eager to
know whether she has done well than is
Patti at this day. She comes off tht
stage smiling and pleased.
Her eyes sparkle, and the first thins
she asks her husband is: "Well, was
that good? Listen how pleased they
are." On being reassured that she is
the darling of the public's heart, she is
in an ecstasy of pleasure, and for the
next performance sht is all the more
eager to do her best. It is this wonder
ful desire to be at her best that uphold?
her in her magnificent art.
There are few people who have
achieved the fortune, the fame and the
great notoriety that Patti has who would
deny themselves the many human priv
ileges that she does merely to preserve
her voice and to be able to maintain the
matchless charm of her art.
At every hotel where rooms are en
gaged for herself special stipulation is
made and rooms selected for her servants
as well. The price is never an object
Mme. Patti and suite generally occupy
about ten rooms and a parlor m every
city in which she sings. She gives twe
concerts a week, and never travels on
the day she sings. She requires perfect
rest and refuses to speak to any one on
tbe day of a concert. Spare Moments.
The Doctor and Ills Patient.
Dr. P: en joys a very large practice,
and hardly finds time to take his much
une aay ur. r , wno nau company
to dinner, sat quietly chatting in a cor
ner of the drawing room, when he wa?
told that a patient had come to see him
who was strongly recommended by
some fellow practitioners. The doctor
submitted with a bad grace and stepped
into his surgery.
Our physician was in the habit of as
certaining the condition of the patient
by asking him to count, and generally
stopped him at thirty or thirty-five
quite long enough for the purpose. This
time also Dr. P asked his patient to
count. Time passed on, and the guests
began to feel alarmed at his protracted
absence. One of them opened the sur
gery door. Dr. P had gone to sleep
in his armchair, and the patient had
counted up to 8,642. Matin.
Like most things in China, the prac
tice of surgery differs considerably from
that in vogue in less enlightened west
ern countries. Bone setting in the Ce
lestial empire is a complicated affair, and
doubtless much more efficacious than
European methods. In setting a frac
tured limb the surgeon does not attempt
to bring the bones together, but merely
wraps the limb in red clay, inserting
some strips of bamboo into the clay.
These strips are swathed in bandages,
and in the outer bandage the head of a
live chicken is placed. Here comes in
the superior science of the Celestial.
After the bandage has been secured the
fowl is beheaded and its blood is al
lowed to penetrate the fracture, for it
nourishes the fractured limb and is
"heap good medicine." London Hos
America's First Lighthouse.
The first lighthouse built on this con
tinent was at St. Augustine, Fla. Its
chief use was as a lookout, whence the
Spanish people of the town could see
vessels approaching from Spain or get
notice of the coming of foes in time to
run away. 1 ne tower attracted the at
tention of Francis Drake as he was sail
ing along the coast with his fleet of high
pooped ships on his way home from pil
laging the cities of the Spanish main.
So he stopped long enough to loot the
town and destroy what he could not
take away. Washington Star.
A Heifer la a Hathtub.
A number of cattle were landed at
the Weems line wharf yesterday morn
ing. Their driver was James Oroucher.
The animals seeming quiet, Groucher
started to drive them without any
ropes. On reaching Conway street a
heifer, which had been moving along
very placidly, became very much ani
mated, and made things very interest
ing for the balance of the herd. The
street being too wide for her she danced
up an alley between 129 and 131 Con
way street. A gate blocked her way,
but only momentarily. Through it she
went, and then another obstacle pre
sented itself, Mrs. Emma A. Poole, who
proved to be no more of a stop to the
heifer's onward progress than Fort Car
roll would be to a modern man-of-war.
In a moment Mrs. Poole was knocked
to the ground, and in the kitchen it
went. There some desti tction of prop
erty was committed, but not enough to
satisfy the heifer.
The dining room was nexW entered,
where the well known quadruped-in-a
china-shop scene vas re-enacted. The
hallway was then taken in, and a lamp
was knocked down. The heifer wanted
to conquer higher worlds, so she went
upward into a bedroom. Here, tem
porarily, repose was sought on the bed,
but it fell under the animal's weight,
other damage being done during this
occurrence. From here, the weather
being warm, her heifership went into
the bathroom and hopped into the bath
tub. Mrs. Poole then commenced call
ing for help, and, with the assistance of
a blue coated soldier, drove the animal
out, and she at once sailed ' up Hanover
street and there entered another house,
but did no damage. The driver finally
caught the animal Baltimore Ameri

Miss Ethel, daughter of D. W. Pease,
of West Carrollton, is the possessor of a
Maltese cat. Early in the spring the cat
deserted his place in the house and took
up his abode with the chickens, remain
ing day and night in the chicken yard.
He soon formed an attachment for an
old black hen, which was reciprocated,
and the two became inseparable. Thus
matters went on for some time, when
the hen, remembering that the usual
season for multiplying and replenishing
her species had arrived, selected a nest
in the poultry house and made known
her intentions in the usual way. She
was at once supplied with the necessary
eggs and commenced business. This, it
was supposed, would end -the rather
strange flirtation and Tommy would re
turn to his mat on the porch, but not so,
Judge of the surprise of the family on
going to the poultry house the next day
to nnu that his catship had taken pos
session of the adjoining nest with the
nest egg and was sitting m the most ap
proved fashion. Cor. Dayton (O.) Her
A Gaudy Uniform.
Warden Aull has adopted a novel
method of keeping track of such con
victs as are continually planning to es
cape. Thursday morning he surprised
three of the most incorrigible by
dressing them up with a flaming red
flannel blouse and cap. Across the
back of the blouse in plain view is a
broad white strip of canvas marked in
large, plain letters, "Convict No.
The pants are the regulation stripes. It
was a great surprise to the convicts.
As they marched to the canal they
were subjected to a great deal of raillery

the officers and guards busy for some
time trying to keep run of them. With
these suits on they can be easily watched
from the various posts and their every
movement noted. All who attempt to
escape hereafter will be treated in like

Georgia's Profits from Fruits.
The Georgia fruit crop is a big thing
this year, and everybody is interested in
knowing what the growers will make
out of it. In the peach and grape crops
alone conservative estimates show that
about 500 carloads of peaches and 100
carloads of grapes will leave the state
for foreign markets during the present
season. The estimated receipts for the
peach and grape crops combined are
Reports show that the peaches are
well formed, of good size and perfectly
sound, and this, together with the de
crease in yield from last year, makes
good prices and ready sales an assured
fact. Other important fruit crops will
largely swell the total sales, and lots of
summer money will be put in circula
tion where it will do good. Columbus
A Famous Sculptor of Italy.
Professor Pio Fedi died at the age of
seventy-six. He suffered for several years
from paralysis. He was one of the best
modern sculptors of Italy, an imitator
of Canova and a follower of the Greek
school. Some of his best statues are at
the Loggia del Arcagno, at the Uffizi
and the Old Palace. One of his "Christs"
adorns the upper part of the Scala Santa
at Rome. From every part of Italy
telegrams of sympathy have arrived.
His funeral was very grand. All those
who belong to the Academy of Art and
all the notabilities of the town followed
his body; innumerable garlands and
bouquets covered the funeral car. Flor
