An odd will was Jlled at tho Prolate
fllco In Auburn, M, recently. It was
that of Kllsha Hall of Mluot, nud was
dated in 18U7, but the maker of the
will had outlived nil tho witnesses to it
and It had to be proved from the hand
writing of thu mini who drew it. It
was tho llrst cane on record of tho kind.
Tho maker, Kllsha Hall, was an old
cltl.en of Minot and served In tho late
war. On one occasion hn was severely
Wounded in battle, and when tho men
were gathering up tho wounded they
cam I) along to him, examined hlin and
wero going to pass him by, "Take
mo along," ho said, ''You can't live,"
was thn reply. "I can and will," ho
said, and so earnest wus ho that tho
men picked him up, That was twenty
eight yours ago, and Kllsha lived not
only o make his will but to survive all
the witnesses of It, and that document
too, a quarter of ft century. Not a
change had been mado in tho paper
from the day it was drawn.

evidently has not thn highest opinion
of Washington society, nnil tlio

subjeqts which she llnds people most
delight to talk about do not In
terest her at all. Hliosays: "t haven't
heard anyone talk since I came to
Washington, I've heard more about
the weather In one month than I ever
hoard In a year before, and I wondur if
anyone ever does say anything that
doesn't refer to It. I'm tired of the
wcatlfor. I'd rather stay at home and
rend those innga,1 nes than go culling
to bo talked to about tho weather.
There's a full slock to discuss, I know

taste, I know, for a woman, but ma
chinery of every sort fascinates me and
I would rather read about it than a

papers and Journals, and shall enjoy
the hiiiohinery exhibitions at the Colum

Another worthy of mention
is a

made of soft ecru summer silk, (lower

An inovation of the dressmakers
art is a pink batiste frock with pink
velvet riblxin bretelles. The backs
and sides of tlio bodice have the sheer

gold beads.
Knglish tailors aro again making a
pntiseworthy protest against long
skirts "scavenger skirls," they call
them for street dresses to bo worn in
tho spring. The skirt they commend
escapes tho ground, but is mado ns
long as possiblo without touching. It,
is also fuller than the present scant
skirt, tho seams in the back nnd of
the front gore being loss sloped toward
the top.
Ulack silk soro too firmly woven to
fray in the seams is being mado up in
tailor gowns for tlio spring. It is liked
in severely plain styles, entirely with
out trimming, with all edges linisheil
with stitching. Another featuro is the
use ol tho India silks t hat are now
sold at low prices from f0 cents to
76 cents for simple dresses to bo
worn in tho morning in tho summer in
stead of zephyrs, ginghams, and other
cottons of tine quality. It is claimed
that cottons lose their freshness soon-

The forbidding of the enjoyment of
scandal in public is, at any rate, tin
acknowledgment of it vulgarity if
not of its wickedness. It proclaims,
too, the fact t lint society thinks well
of itself nnd its intentions, mid has
a standard of some loftiness up
to which it endeavors t olive, and t hat
it recognizes nn interest in t Impossible
ill-doings of fallen mortals as sonfe
thing intrinsically low ami coarse and
calculated to hurt its own structure,
an interest in such (nets anyway as
indicative of un order of taste not to
be desired, nnd its possessor a person
not to bo associated with. It may bo
simply as a sybaritic precaution, ease
and pleasure being so much surer

thrusts in an ugly head, that un

nature are tabooed in t he conversa

xvliether that is so or not, it is plain
that good society would like to be

and would speak no evil; it has found
that the essence of good manners is

Selecting Carpets and Rugs,
In buying carpets remember that Ui6
best are always the cheapest, writes
Maria l'arloa in her domestic depart
ment in tho March Ladies' llotno
Journal. Tlio more limited ono's
means aro, the more essential it is
that only a good article shall bo pur
chased. The Isist quality of body
Jlrussels will outwear two or more of
the cheaper tapes! ry carpets. A firto-ly-wovcn,
smooth ingi'ain carpet may
COHt half a dollar more per yard than
ono of common texture, but it will bo
cheaper in tho end. Uugs for tho cen
ter of tho room can be mado from a
body Urussels, wilh a tjordcr to
match. They should be tackwl down.
Jannneso cotton rugs, pretty anddiir
able, cost from three to six dollars.
They are good for bod-rooms, bath
rooms and sitting rooms, i'uy Hand
some rug's whenever you afford
to. They are a good investment; for,
unlike carpets, they do not wear out,
anil you can hand them down in tho
family the same as silver or dia
monds. A beautiful Oriental rug is a
joy forevir. Ju selecting one bo par

ami have some brightness, In general,
when choosing carpets, have the

for his sharo in iti construction was
very ifrent, as every liiimilm sailor
will attest.
'I ho story runs that while tho ca
thedral wus In eourso of construction,
tho chief architect intrusl.i I to u very
clover apprentice tho task of milking
this bridge. Tho young man fell, to
con tide u I that ho offered to span tho
Hiinnlw before his muster had finished
tho cathedral, lint ho llnnlly found
that ho had undertaken too much, for
tho sacred pjlo went up wth great
steadiness, while tho bridge moved
with great difficulty. Tho youngster
finally ventod his djscouriiguiiumt In
blasphemous wishes that tho devil
might take over tho job,
iso sooner spoken tban a vunnnihlo
monk appeared and offered to do tho
work. In his sandals were cloven
hoofs, and a lull whisked under the
sacred garb; but nevertheless a bar
gain was mado, and it was agreed that
when tho bridge was done, tho devil
was to hnvo tho flrst throe living
things that crossed.
The devil kept his word. All tho
material camo to hand with such
devilish rapidity that tho morning
broke upon a completed h.'ldgo.
It was May-day, mid of course a
groat crowd was present, each eager
to bo first in crossing so now and mag.
nificetit a thoroughfare. The devil,
delighted with bis bargain, rubbed his
hands under tho second arch from tho
shore and waited for his victims,
(slop," suhl thu architect to the
ct'owd. "M-uinl back! In tho open
ing of this bridge wo havo a solemn
ceremony to perform before it can bo
pronounced safe. Jacob," said ho,
with a wink to his foreman, "let tho
slrangors tako precodonoo." At those
words a rough wolf-dog, followed by
a cock and a lion, was set at largo,
and crossed thn llrst arch of tho
bridge. At tho same tlmo a droad'lul
noise was heard under tho pier. The
mangled remains of the three animals
flow in all directions, and the dovll
was seen to disappear, screaming,
"cheated! cheated of tiny fun!" Tho
monks riiw sprinkled holy water on
tho bridge, and the happy people re
joiced. Tho second arch of tho INyorisburg
bridge, i.s If to prove tho legend, is
still savagely bent upon destroying
tho boatman venturing beneath It;
and as wo hud no desire to tueasuro
the strength of our puddle with that
of tho devil's pitchfork, wo carefully
avoided It, and advise nil others to do
the sumo.
A Morel I'liuiiilntloii.
A vory simple method of laying the
foundations on a swampy location,
which did not furnish a firm sub-soil,
was employed by an American engin
eer for supporting a low wooden
building to bo used for storage of ma
chinery. Ca-ks were set in holes In
tho ground along tho line of posts, and
were filled to tho depth of about ona
foot wJh iron turnings. Tho posts
wry.i set In casks, which were then
filled with iron turnings compactly
rammed In place. A solution of salt
and water was then slowly poured
over these turnings, which compactly
solidified into a hard mass. The heat
of tho oxidation of tlio Iron was so

charred, tho latter fact probably being
tho reason why they havo not as yet
exhibited any signs of decay, and in

Tho watercress Is a plant containing
medicinal (piaHtlos. A curious char
acteristic of It Is that, If grown In a
ferruginous stream, it absorbs into
itself live times tho amount of Iron
that any other plant does. For all
an.i inio constitution-! it Is thoreforo
specially of value. Hut It also con
tains proportions of garlic and sul
phur, of lodino and phosphates, and
is a blood purifier, while abroad it is
thought a most wholesome condiment
with moat, roast or grilled. Tho cul
tivated plant is rather nioro easy of
digostion than tho wild one.

A well- known writer for ono of the
standard publlealloiM of thu United
Stains in summing iii tho Irishmen's
legends, tastes, Cutis, etc., has this to
say In regard lo their preference for
green. 'The early Culls worshipped
the dawn mid the sunrise. It Is mora
tli mi probable, therefore, that their
liking for tho color green, which wo
soo In their flags, sashes, oto., itroso
from a mistake among those who had
lost a thorough knowledge of tho Irish
language. The sun, In Ccllh!, Is
called by a word pronounced exactly
llko our word 'green, "and It Is like
ly thai the Irish fondness for that
color arose, through tho striking simi
larity of tho two words. In tho same
way, when wo talk about a groerihouso
wo think they are so called because
plants are kept green In them during
the winter) yet, It Is fur more probable
that tho word Is derived from tho old
Celtic word for sun, because green
houses are so built ns to catch thu rays
and best of tho sun and 'store them for
future use. St. Louis liepublia
