Whistler's Frank Criticism.
A Paris letter says that Whistler se
riously criticised one of Damiat's pic
rnres in a Paris art exhibition a week oi
so ago, and the next day a mutual
friend mischievously introduced the two
men. Meantime the censorious ex
pressions of the former had been widely
related. "Glad to meet you, Mr.
Whistler," Dannat is reported as having
said, "particularly glad at this moment,
as I hear you have been running down
my pictures behind my back."
"Yes," returned the adept in the
gentle art of making enemies; "I did
say something rather harsh about it,
and it was behind your back, as I nevei
before had the pleasure of seeing you
face to face.

A Starve 1 in Book Publishing.
A curious look, in .which the text is
neither written nor printed, but woven,
has lately been published in Lyons. It
is made of silk, and wa3 published in
twenty-five parts. Each part consists
of two leaves, so that the entire volume
contains only fifty leaves, inscribed with
the service of the mass and several
prayers. Both the letters and the border
are in black silk on a white background.
THE LIFE OF
Her Home Took Hie Itlt liilnrrn Ills
Teeth and Made a Terrible Itiui An
Almost Miraculous I.eii Over ait Open
lrawlrhlge A I'lucky Woiuau.
Many years ago I was an eyewitness
to an accident which befell the empresfl
of Austria, and which was so terrible
that her escape from death seems to me
even now a miracle.
Elizabeth of Austria, as she liked to
call herself, was at that time not only
the most daring but idso the licst rider
in tho world. No man or woman ever
knew better how to take an obstacle
than this most charming of all crowned
women. Though her majesty was th(jfi
already a grandmother, on horseback
she could give odds to the best Hun
garian and English riders. The party
at the event of which I am writing con
sisted of the empress and a large num
ber of Austrian and foreign gentlemen
riders, who seemed to have gathered to
gether from all parts of Europe. Most
of them were known as prominent
horsemen. This was not surprising con
sidering that the empress would never
take tho field in company of poor riders.
On this occasion the empress rode a
very spirited young horse, which she
had obtained in Lancashire when on a
visit to England, and to tho training of
which she had personally attended for
nearly a year. Everything went well
after the start until we crossed a high
way leading to a small Hungarian
country town a short distance off. Pass
ing a white painted milestone the em
press' horse shied, and suddenly be
coming uncontrollable it dashed down
the road in the direction of tho town.
From appearance it waa evident that
the animal had succeeded in taking the
bit between his teeth and that no earth
ly power could stop it on its mad run
away. Although we all followed the empress,
none of us seemed to gain upon her.
Flying we passed through the little
town, much to the amazement and the
terror of tho few people in the streets.
A short distance bej-ond the town was a
shipping canal, and to our horror we
saw that the drawbridge spanning the
canal was open so as to permit the pas
sago of some boat. In a moment we
realized that tho empress was running
straight into the jaws of certain death.
Faster and faster we went on in pur
suit, but faster and faster also seemed
the empress' horse to fly. Now it had
reached the open bridge. Would it
stop? Before we had time to think we
saw the animal dash up tho incline of
the open bridge like a flash of lightning.
For a moment we could not but close
our eyes and a shudder convulsed every
man in the cavalcade. It was a terrible
moment a moment during which fear
and horror alternately kept 'us merci
lessly in their pangs. When we opened
our eyes again, still riding as fast as our
horses could go, the fair rider and her
runaway had disappeared.
We had no doubt that the inevitable
had happened and that Elizabeth of
Austria was drowned in the slow and
turbid waters of the canal.
The idea was a terrible one. . My pen
is too weak to describe the . confusion
among us and the agony- ofi suspense
that followed and seemed to make each
rider quiver in his saddle. Almost un
consciously we had stopped our horses
just before reaching the incline to the
open draw. As a matter of fact our ex
citement was so great that we did not
even notice that one of our number,
Count Szepany, if I remember well, was
also missing. All our faculties natural
ly had followed the empress only.
There we were, halting before that
terrible bridge like a pack of cowards,
with nobody among us plucky enough
to ride into death with an empress.
A few seconds later the inclines of the
bridge were lowered again, but nobody
of our company seemed to even attempt
to pass it.
From the pangs of fear and horror we
had passed into those of amazement.
Several hundred yards beyond the bridge
we beheld riding toward us a lady on a
foaming steed. It was the empress, and
at her side the only gallant man of the
crowd, Count Szepany. Her majesty
firmly sat her horse, and appeared as
cool and collected as if nothing had hap
bmihngly did she make fun of us and
our anxiety. Her fine raillery was just
as much justified as it was inoffensive
when she saw the pitiable figure we cut
in her exalted presence.
The empress' horse was very lame.
and closer examination showed that it
had dislocated its right hind fetlock. In
jumping the open draw between the
wings of the bridge the hind feet of the
empress horse had caught one of the
iron rails at the edge and torn off one of
its hind shoes. The most extraordinary
feature of the accident was how the
horse ever could have gone down the
incline without" breaking its own and
the rider's neck. The only explanation
for this small miracle, however, might
be found in the fact that the empress
never lost her presence of mind for a
minute when on horseback, and that,
though the animal was uncontrollable,
she must have sat it to perfection. With
regard to Count Szepany, he was unable
to give any account of his escape. More
over, he did not even remember whether
his horse made the jump before or after
the empress'. He simply said that dur
ing the jump he closed his eyes for a
sensation as inougn tne water wero dud
bling over his head. Harper's Young
A Scythe as Old as Moses.
An Egyptian scythe, dug up on the
banks of tho Nile in 1890, is exhibited
among tho antiquities in the private
museum of Flinders Petrie, London.
The shaft of the instrument is of wood
set with a row of tine flint saws, which
are securely cemented in a groove. This
discovery answers the oft asked ques
tion, How did the stone age man har

Itatbing Suits Are Shorter.
P.athing suits will be worn shorter
this year. This may apiear startling to
the fair sex, but as it is intended solely
for the man of fashion, with whom I be
lieve myself on "speaking terms," the
shock in the first sentence must be for
given, as it was altogether uninten
tional. But in saying that bathing suits will
be worn shorter, I have reference only
to the lower half. Last year they cov
ered many an ungainly knee. This year
they can be worn cut to just above the
knee or just below, and the shape of a
man's limbs will have much to do with
his choice. As a man is never an ex
cellent judge of his own physique, it
might be well to ask a friend for advice.
Bathing suits will be worn as tight as
ever. This is another bit of agreeable
information for the host of well shaped
men who enjoy the two or three months
in the year during which they can dis
port themselves on the sands of Manhat
tan Beach, Long Branch, Newport and
Atlantic City. But society permits this
show of shape, in fact enjoys it, and so
the man of fashion has simxly to bow
obeisance and pose.
When you buy your bathing outfit
this year be sure and do it properly.
Buy them in one piece of worsted or
silk, and if you are stout get vertical
stripes, and if you are thin follow the
Sing Sing design. That is very much in
style this year. Boston Herald.
Treatment of the Czar's Consumptive Son.
Tho Grand Duke George, the czar's
second son, who ever since his enforced
return through illness from his Indian
tour has been under medical treatment
for pulmonary disease, has been passing
the winter at Abbas-Tuman in the Cau
casus. A private letter from that place
states that his imperial highness is under
going a most remarkable course of treat
ment. The walls in his apartments are
bare and nnpapered, the furniture is of
plain wood or cane without upholstering
or stuff covering of any kind, and his bed
consists only of the thinnest of mat
tresses. Throughout the winter only
very moderate nre nas been Kept up,
while the windows of the grand duke's
rooms have been continuously open.
His attendants have suffered dread
fully from the cold, but his medical ad
visers hold that this low temperature is
very beneficial to their imperial patient,
as it tends to destroy the bacillus and
prevent the formation of tubercle. They
maintain that the progress of the disease
has been arrested, and express hopes
that, if the treatment which they pre
scribe is persevered with, the grand
duke will m two jears' time have com
pletely recovered. Pall Mall Gazette.
A New Way to Catch Fish.
Mr. David Pickle, of the Cuba district,
Blakely, Ga., has a new mode of catch
ing fish. The plan is this: The fish are
baited for some daj's with a mixture of
flour and magnetized steel filings made
into stiff paste or dough. When they
begin to take the bait a magnetized iron
or steel rod, coated with the same kind
of paste, is let down to them. They
soon attempt to suck the paste from it,
and m doing so stick hard and fast.
It is not unusual for Mr. Pickle to
haul out at one time a long string or rod
of suckers in this way. This plan of
fishing, combined with Mr. Cal Odom's
method of frightening or setting fire to
the fur of raccoons and burning them
.out of the highest trees with roman
candles, is bound to revolutionize hunt
ing and fishing in this section. Atlanta
An Equine Ostrich.
D. F. Barrett has a horse that is both
herbivorous and carnivorous. That is to
say, it not only eats corn, oats, hay and
other things that equines should, but it
devours rags, nails, scrap iron, barb
wire, etc., with a relish. Friday its
queer stomach hankered after meat, and
Dave had a hen and chickens running in
the yard, and that horse gulped down
seven of the little chickens quicker than
a wink and smacked its lips for more.
The horse ia in good condition, is sound
as a dollar, was raised in the far off
state of Washington, and, aside from its
strange appetite and peculiar gastro
nomic 6tomach, ia all right. Laddonia
Having False Teeth Palled.
Going twelve miles to have a set of
false teeth pulled and being obliged to
take gas in order to undergo the opera
tion ia something new in the dental line,
but it was the experience of a Kenne
bec county woman the other day. The
teeth were new and were such a snug
fit that she couldn't get them out. After
enduring the discomfort for two days
she went to Augusta for relief, and by
the time she reached there her mouth
was so sore as to make the taking of gas
necessary. Lewiston Journal.
A bill is to be introduced into the next
session of the Pennsylvania legislature
for the creation of forest reservations
