LITTLE KNOWN MANUSCRIPT OF
WASHINGTON IRVING JUST PUBLISHED
From the New York Sunday World.
The Sunday World Magazine pub
lishes a sketch by Washington Irving
which has never before appeared in
print. It is many years since any ad
ditions have been made to the pub
lished writings of Mr. Irving, his fame
having been well established during
his life and a careful garnering hav
ing been made of all that had emanat
ed from his facile and felicitous pen.
The little sketch published in the
Sunday World Magazine is therefore
of unusual interest to all admirers of
Washington Irving’s writings.
The manuscript of this sketch is
the property of a Brooklyn family,
who are descendants of the lady at
whose request the famous author of
the story of Rip Van Winkle wrote the
sketch in the autumn of 1832. That
side by a pair of rosy lips and by
sweetly blushing cheeks on the other,
it is placed in its honored seat to be
the unseen interpreter of those lovely
eyes that beau so bright above, but
not for that only, for besides, it an
swers every ether purpose good and
bad under the whole heaven.
I shall not attempt to analyze this
little organ and show how curiously it
is constructed; suffice it for me to de
tail some of the many uses to which
it is applied by its fair owner.
In the first place, then, it does a
wonderful sight of gossiping, indeed,
it has such a wide range and such full
employment in riddling and sifting
and exposing its neighbors’ affairs,
that ’tis marvelous how it ever finds
time for anything else. For myself, I
wonder the little machine is not ere
was the year following Mr. Irving's
return to New York, after his long
stay in Europe, where he gathered ma
terial for his "Life of Columbus,"
"Conquest of Grenada" and other
works, and spent three years in dip
lomatic service in London.
By Washington Irving.
The apostle of the Gentiles has very
ably discoursed of tcngues in general:
but l shall confine my remarks to la
dies' tongues in particular and this
branch of the subject is alone, mo
thinks, a copious theme.
The place assigned a lady’s tongue
is well known to be an enviable one.
Well guarded and secured by ivory
palisades, concealed from view on one

j business. The fact is otherwise, how
i ever, for in addition to this labor, it
has the strength and capacity to and
actually turns off a deal of scandal in
I the course of a year, and often in a
much shorter period, making every
i character within reach of its notes
\ blacker than night.
!t any one wishes to witness this
i part of its performance let him repair
| to a tea table where the warm extract
! ct the Chinese herb circulates freely,
and there he will see it exhibited in
! the fullest perfection; but he will find
! it difficult, 1 ween, to make his
i thoughts and perceptions keep pace
i with the little galloper, unless they
i can outrun a steamboat and keep up
with a railroad engine; nevertheless.
, he may try it.
I shall pass over many of the minor
though not inconsiderable feats of
this wonderful animal, and come di
rectly to its capacity for scolding.
But why need I dwell on what is so
familiar to us all? Who has not seen
ladies, fair as Aurora, in the very act
of scolding, a thousand times? Ah!
Who has never seen it look blue all
around them? Who would have
guessed such a charming being—so
lovely to look upon—capable of this.?
Who would have dreamed that she
had but to lift those rosy portals and
such torrents of execration wrould rush
out—but to unloose that little tongue
and shake the firmament with its
Is there such noise and confusion in
woman’s elements, I would ask?
Surely not; the whole mischief is Id
her tongue alone—and that not under
her control. Could she curb that all
would be well, but. alas, it often runs
away in spite of her, and all her ef
forts to reclaim and soften its madcap
disposition have hitherto proved un
availing—it is to be hoped they may
not prove so much longer!
But. on the other hand, that this
little member has, as I have already
hinted, many shining qualities, can
not be denied.
It is that that sings such melting
strains in the ears of the gentlemen
and telling them the dear angel, whose
thought and feelings it speaks, is pas
sionately fond of them. when, in truth
she cares not a whit about them, al
most breaks so many of their hearts
Many other notable and praise
worthy exploits it performs daily, not
meet here to be mentioned. In short
as by this time the reader must have j
nerceived, it is an unsettled question j
whether it be an engine more power
iul for good or for evil. And without
saying more, I will beg the ladies i
pardon for havina said so much or
this fruitful subject; in all I have said

to their tongues—and if for this the
latter are not let loose upon me,

WAR ON COCAINE IN INDIA.
Sale Greatly Restricted Because of
Alarming Effects on the Natives.
The drug cocaine has laid such a

authorities are making strenuous ef

Within the last few years a ship

($33,330-) was shipped to Calcutta, and
the excise department intervened,
with the result that the cocaine had to
be sent back to England.

In Europe and America the drug is
usually taken by injection, but the In
dian found another method. “Pan
supari” was a kind of native chewing
gam. It consisted of a leaf smeared
with lime and rubbed with areca nut,
cloves and various aromatics. Then
the native added cocaine and found
“pan supari" an excellent means of
taking the drug.
The abuse of cocaine by the natives
grew to such an alarming extent that
two years ago a measure wras intro
duced prohibiting the sale except by
licensed persons. Native offenders
against the law have been prosecuted
in large numbers.

The separate waist is spoken of as

White taffeta skirts are also obtain
ing a wide popularity just now in
Paris. They take the place filled by
the white cloth skirt in winter.
Taffeta Costumes for the House.
Tksse are certainly quite as appro
priate, if not more so. for afternoon
and reception wear, but they are be
coming and are perfectly suitable for
the house. Taffeta this year has
proved one of the most fashionable
of materials. It is now manufactured
in such a way that it is soft and pli
able, has luster if so desired, and has
also rather a dull finish. It looks well
plaited and gathered, and also shows
to advantage if plain. Consequently
it is likely to remain a leading favor
ite for some time to come.
A most charming and attractive
gown made of pale rose pink taffeta
is included in the trousseau of one of
the autumn brides. The skirt is a
most elaborate creation with no less
than seven bias flounces, or, rather,
ruffles, at the back. It has the same
number in front, only they are much
narrower and put closer together,
above these ruffles is a band of lace
insertion. The upper part oi the skirt
is entirely of lace, with the exception
of c narrow shirred yoke.
Striped or FTaid Blouse.
There is a distinct vogue the first
of the fall days for the fancy striped
or plaid blouse to b° worn with a
plain colored skirt. Ibis is smart in
a striped soielaine. the ground being
white with stripes of lilac, the bremd
ones a deeper color and the hairlines
fainter. This is fashioned with the
favorite vest effect, the bias stripes
meeting in the center and smali pearl
buttons in rows down each side.
There is a high collar in white with
a shaped strapping in velvet around
the neck below. The shoulder takes
almost a cape form, and the sleeves
show a puff to the elbow, where It is
met by a deep strapped cuff. The
skirt in white sicilienne. has a hip
yoke beneath which arc many gores,
alternately plain and plaited, and
overlaid box plaits appear rront and
Capes of Cluny or Yak Lace.
Among the prettiest trifles in the
way of smart, dressing for the late
summer days are the little circular
capes of some coarse lace—Cluny or
Yak—dyed to match the color of the
gown, or left in their natural color.
Some of these fasten down the front
with little black ribbon bows. Others
have black chiffon arranged in stole
fashion down either side of the front,
with big rosettes of the same at the
neck, and heading the fall of accoid
ion pleated chiffon, which forms a
sort of tassel at the waist line.
Of Linen Batiste.
Simple frocks that are made with
skirt and waist in one. giving unbrok
en lines from the shoulders to the
lower edge, are always becoming to
the little folk and always in style.
This one is daintiness itself and is
made of sheer linen batiste with hand
sewed tucks, hemstitching and French
knots, the collar and wrist bands be
ing edged writh narrow frills embroid
ered by hand. All materials used for
dresses of the sort are, however,
equally suitable and the finish can be
lace, machine embroidery or anything

Some slender women are wearing

are they most becoming when trim

ings, three or four usually. Lace rib

sometimes matching the capes, some
times in contrast with all-white capes.
They have a pretty Romney effect,
w'ith bunched-up ends over the bust,
or else permitting the ends to hang
in a long stole effect.
A Recognized Favorite.
Norfolk styles always suit young
ftlrls admirably well and are adapted
Ulike to jacket suits and to coats for
general wear. This one is new as
well as smart and includes a yoke, the
extensions of which serve to hold the
box plaits. As shown it is made of
blue and green checked cheviot with 8

buttons. To make the coat for a gir1

of pale cherries scattered over it, was

Perpetual Activity of Radium.
The radium electroscope is a little
instrument in which the departure of
negative ions from a speck of radium
inclosed in a sealed vacuum tube per
petually changes the leaves of an
electroscope; also inside the sealed
tube. While the action is probably
not perpetual, so long as the radium
lasts, say 30,000 years, the tiny leaves
of the electroscope will, it is said, go
on opening and shutting so many
times a minute, like a clock or a per
petual motor. There is also an ar
rangement by which the periodical
discharges of the electroscope, when
the leaves touch the side of the sealed
glass tube, in which a wire connects
two inner coatings of zinc foil to
earth, ring a bell or print a record ol
every contact of the leaves. Each dis
charge from the outside terminal ol
zinc foil and wire when the leaf
strikes the inner foil is sufficient tc
act on a coherer similar to that which
is used in wireless telegraphy. The
coherer, as in a wireless telegraphic
system, is put in a bell circuit, and
each time it is acted on by a train oi
Hertzian waves it rings a bell. With
a three milligramme speck of radium
the bell was rung every seventy sec
onds. Thus a perpetual minute bell
could be devised.

alike. His work really covers such a
wide range that he must be able to
present something different for every
All printers do more or less pam

in this line is that shown in the illus

booklet of any number of pages with

The cover is made larger than the
(outside booklet, allowing an edge of
about an inch all around, which is
partly separated from the main por
tion by perforation. This edge con
tains an adhesive substance, which
can be easily moistened and the back
and front of the cover brought to
gether. This eventually seals the en
velope and when received can be
quickly opened by tearing off the per
forated edge. The name and address
of the recipient can be written on
the front the same as in the ordinary
envelope and a stamp affixed.
Picking Coal by Machine.
England is soon to have a complete
coal screenings plant for the express
purpose of “picking” coals. The coal
is carried on a traveling belt, while
operatives, standing on each side at
short distances, pick out the stone,
shale and other substances as the
coal passes along. The plant will
have picking belts, jigging screens,
revolving tipples and various convey
ors, together with the necessary steel
structural work and gearing. The re
volving tippler, with a diameter of six
feet six inches, is arranged to convey
all the coal from the tubs to the
screens without waste and to reduce
the breakage to a minimum. The jig
ger sorts into three classes of coal—
smudge, nut and best. On the under
side of the jigging screen are two
steel plate shoots for delivering the
nut and slack to the picking belts.
There are three belts arranged to con
vey the coal to the trucks, with low
ering shoots at the end. At the end of
each conveyor are three steel plate
shoots for delivering the material into
the wagons. The plant is designed to
deal with an output of 500 tons a day.
Making Steel Without Pig Iron.

facturing company of that city in pro

the use of pig iron. The magnetic
iron sand of New Zealand Is treated
first with electro-magnetic separators,
so as to leave a pure magnetic iron
jxide. These particles of ore are
dropped automatically into a slowly
revolving cylinder in a furnace, which
uses fuel oil and the waste gases.
The particles are reduced thus to the
metallic form while retaining their in
dividuality. From the revolving cyl
inders the ore particles drop into a
Working Under Compressed Air.
The physiological effects of com
pressed air may be inferred from the
following suggestions: Men required
to work under compressed air should
be sound, small, temperate, and at
last 25 years old. For a pressure of
two atmospheres the shift should not
exceed four hours, and the time of
passage through the lock on coming
out should be thirty minutes, while
for a pressure of five atmospheres the
length of the shift should be reduced
to one hour, and the time in the lock
should be twice that amount. After
leaving the lock on coming away from
their work the men should have a
complete rest of one hour.
