Number of Pages Printed Increases
Largely with the Pass
At the beginning of the last cen
tury the printing ordered by con
gress in the conduct of legislative
business was practically ail that was
required by the government, writes
W. S. Rossiter, in Atlantic. Congres
sional printing, moreover, was limited
to bills, reports, claims and journals.
No exact comparison, therefore, is pos
sible between that period and our own,
since modern conditions bear no re
semblance to those of a century ago.
A computation however, for different
years through the century, of aggre
gate pages issued, at least roughly il
lustrates the rapid expansion of offi
cial requirement. The total number
of printed pages of all classes pub
lished by the federal government in
1880 was 4,582; in 1820, 6,518; in 1840,
19,331; in 1860, 42,007; in 1S80, 72,
171. After 1880 the use of printed mat
ter of all classes increased at a pro
digious rate, and, according to the re
port of the public printer, the total
number of pages of all classes of print
ing in 1900 amounted to 312,634.

Feminine Distress That Called for
the Offices of a Member
of the Sex.
Just at the corner of Nassau and
Spruce streets, "where the wind
blows,” two pretty girls of the
stenographer type were making their
way at nightfall toward the bridge
through the drizzling rain, holding
onto their hats and the single umbrel
la between them with all the
strength they were capable of. Sud
denly, relates the New York Press,
one of the girls uttered an exclama
tion of dismay and above the roar of
the wind almost shouted to her com
panion a sentence the last word of
which was “broken.”
The two girls took refuge in the lee
of the Tract Society building and held
a consultation. A stream of people
was passing along Nassau street, and
the nature of the mishap seemed to
call for delicate treatment. Then,
while the girl who had shouted held
the umbrella turned toward the rush
ing throng, the other girl knelt down
on the wet sidewalk and began fum
bling with her companion’s skirt.
A dapper young man stepped out of
the passing throng. “Pardon me,
Miss, but can I be of any assistance?”
he asked, raising his hat.
The feminine repair department
came to an abrupt halt. “No, thank
you,” came in chorus from both girls.
“But, really, you should not kneel In
the rain like that,” pursued the young
man. "Do let me fix the shoelace.”
“Please, please go ’way,” implored
the kneeling one. “It isn’t her shoe

THE NEW HAIR STYLES.
How to Hake the New Vienna “Bun”
with Its Chou — About Hair
The Vienna bun is a low coiffure
with a big chou at each side of it, re
ports Mme. Julie D'Arey. You take
your hair and part it, or pompadour it,
or twist it over the ears, just as is
most becoming to you. Then you bring
it up to the crown of the head and tie
it, after which you twist it and turn
it until you have a big low coil far
down at the back of the neck. It is
immensely becoming to nearly all
faces. But the finishing touch is what
is needed. And this is afforded by the
big soft chiffon choux which are a part
of the coiffure.
To make the choux for the Vienna
bun you take enough tulle or chiffon
to make two big rosettes which shall
stand out full and free from the head.
Then you take these rosettes and pin
them to the hair, one back of each ear,
pressing the choux into the hair. You
can use white or shell pink or cloud
blue, just according to your style. And

girlish and good.
WATERWORKS OF ATHENS.
Means of Supply of the Ancient
Acropolis Have Lately Been
Grecian water works as well as
Grecian poetry have survived to serve
the present age. Prof. Dorpfield,
while pursuing archaeological re
searches in Athens, with the purpose
of unearthing the fountain of Pisis
tratus, discovered a number of small
water galleries in the vicinity of the
acropolis. More especially beneath the
road leading from the market place
in Athens, and serving as the route
for the processions of the Panathenea,
fie recognized a series of conduits com
posed of a pair of pipes of pottery
placed one over the other. From the
same point, the azora, other similar
pipes of a square section, covered with
slabs of baked earth, radiated in the
direction of the smaller streets.
The antiquity of this system of
canalization is beyond doubt, insomuch
as the character of the works in con
nection with it is as old as the Roman
and Byzantine epochs. Much knowl
edge also was obtained respecting the
supply of water to the inhabitants of
the capital from the many experi
mental cuttings and trenches.
The aqueduct of Pisistratus, sur
named the Tyrant, was found to pass
the Theater of Bacchus and then ter
minate in a basin where nine conduits
discharged their contents, contiguous
to the fountain of Kallirrhoe, situ
ated at the Puyx. This fountain in
cluded a couple of pools, one above
ground, wherefrom water could be
drawn directly, and a second below,
acting as a reservoir, and also as an
overflow, allowing its surplus water
to pass through a pipe into the city
for the use of the public. In the aque
duct of Pisistratus the water was
transported in round pipes of pot
tery, with joints carefully fitted. If
this acqueduct should fail to be of fur
ther service, that of Hadrian serves
at the present time for a supply to
the Athenian inhabitants.
A New Style.
Artificial and ribbon flowers will

tell them from the real article. This

added by their being perfumed like

expense goes, they cost but little more

No Hatter How Old, a Woman Should
Be Careful of Personal Clean
liness and Dress.
To be well and becomingly dresser
does not necessarily mean a large out
lay of either time or money; neither
does it call for the latest "creation"
of style or material. Often, the sim

dainty personal cleanliness, will make

according to your age,” for one "will
grow old fast enough, and it is just
as well to hang on to a remnant of
youth as long as one can, even if one
has to resort to simple artificial means
to accomplish it. Personal cleanli
ness is an adjunct to good looks above
everything else, and a woman should
give proper attention to this feature.
It is all nonsense for a woman to
claim that she is Vtoo old,” or too
poor, or too overworked to care for
her personaf appearance. She should
resolve not to grow old; not to be
too poor to use soap and water and
a wash rag, or an emollient for the
cleansing of the face, neck and hands,
or for the proper dressing of her hair.
She should take, as her right, a few
minutes every day in which to prop

regard a pleasing personal appear

getting up of the family meals. This
duty she owes to herself.
It is not so much what “others say”
about us that should influence us; we
should approve of ourselves. Deny it
as one may, a becomingly dressed
woman irresistibly compels our atten

she young or old, and neatness of
person and apparel is a passport into
refined society. We instinctively pay
homage to a woman who respects
herself. Moreover, “looks" have a
moral and spiritual effect upon one,

pleasant to look at feels pleasant, and

A RAILROAD COMPLEXION.
Practice of Biding Back and Forth
with Face Unprotected Damag
ing to Good Looks.
“Mercy, no; I never bother with a
veil,” she said. As she said it, she
rubbed her handkerchief briskly over
her face with the tip of one finger.
And the kerchief came off black! Now,
she thought, when she thoroughly
scrubbed that face she would get all
the dust and grime out of the pores.
But why get it in, in the first place?
There is no practice more damaging
to good looks that the habit of riding
back and forth on railway trains or
through dusty city streets with the
delicate skin of the face exposed to all
the soot and grime in the air, says
the Philadelphia Bulletin. Careful
women never do it. They always
wear, when traveling, a plain chiffon
veil—not one of fancy or lace or mesh,
mind you, but a close-woven veil for
real protection. This is tied over the
hat, drawn snugly under the chin and
fastened firmly to the back of the hat.
It has a certain trim air, but the
most important thing is the service
it renders in saving the face from ac
quiring an unnecessary and appalling
amount of dirt.
The complexion so protected will
stay fresh and clean many more years.
Particularly should the business wom
an who rides back and forth into the
city daily adopt this precaution, lest
she find herself the unhappy possessor
of "the road complexion ”
IN A HOUSEHOLD.
According to the popular saying,
every family has a skeleton; but the
Lawrence family, on the upper West
side, has two. The first skeleton
made its appearance a couple of years
ago, when the elder Lawrence boy
took up the study of art. With the
enthusiasm of a student he decided
to purchase a skeleton for the proper
study of anatomy; but knowing the
nervous dispositions of his mother
and sister, be kept the grewsome arti
cle hidden in a chest under his bed.
In the night hours, when the fam
ily had retired, the skeleton was
taken from its resting place, suspend
ed from a convenient cord, and the
young student would proceed to in
crease the Lawrence gas bills.
One night, after working harder
than usual, the student determined to
take a little walk along Riverside
drive before retiring. Contrary to bis
usual custom, he left the skeleton
hanging and turned the light low.
He had been gone but a few minutes
when his mother, suddenly awaken
ing, recalled something she had for
gotten to tell her son. Slipping soft
ly up to his room, she pushed the
door open. There in the fitful light
of the turned-down gas she saw the
bony apparition, gave a shriek and
fainted. It was nearly two months
before she left her bed, brain fever
having set in.
The younger son of the Lawrence
family, now nine years old, is consti
tutionally timid. To him darkness is
filled wdth terrors. Repeated efforts
have been made to cure him of the
affliction, but to no purpose. The
memory of the skeleton, too, which
had so frightened his mother was still
with him. although the bones of that
artistic guest had long since been dis
The other night the little Lawrence
t>oy was asked by his sister to get
something from the closet of her room
on the second floor. To go up to a
dark room was bad enough for the
boy, but the thought of entering a
dark closet in addition, chilled his
blood. He wriggled and invented ex
cuse after excuse, but his father, dis
gusted with his cowardice, peremptori
ly ordered him to go at once. The
boy crawled up stairs most unwill
ingly, seeing goblins and skeletons on
every side. Tremblingly he found his
way to the closet, opened the door
and listened. There was no sound
from the cavernous depths. Cautious
ly he extended his hands, feeling
about for the box, which his sister
bad assured him was “right on the!
floor near the door." He groped his
way along, reaching out to the right
and left, then—
There was a succession of ear-pierc
ing screams. Mr. Lawrence, Sr.,
dropped his newspaper, snatched up a
heavy cane and sprang for the stairs.
Half way down the boy had fallen in
a state of utter collapse. His shrieks
had died awrny to moans.
“What is it?” shouted his father,
bending over him.
“A—a—skeleton—in the closet!” he
gasped. “I—touched—it—Oh!” and
his moans were renewed.
His father gave an ejaculation of
intense anger. “Another one of those
fool art studies! ” he shouted.
“Didn’t one cause us enough trouble?
I’ll smash the accursed thing!”
Bounding up the stairs, he dashed
into, the room, flung open the closet
door and lunged fiercely with hiB cane.
It struck with a rattling noise. In
his anger he did not wait to light the
gas. but struck out blindly, savagely,
again and again as well as the limit
ed space of the closet would permit,
and noted with satisfaction that his
blcrVvs were having a telling effect.
His daughter, who had lingered to
minister to the frightened youngster,
entered at this juncture and lighted
the gas. She gave one glance into the
closet as her perspiring father backed
out, and gave a scream of dismay.
The patent dress form, for which she
had paid $4.98 that day, was ruined.—
