NOVELTIES IN HAMMOCKS.
Somen hut of it I'rofrrniitloii from the Old
S urging Ciinl lliitfi.
Awny from tho hlyrlits nucl sounds of
a if 1 cut city, with no fear of tlio smirch
from lis ilttsty hliufts and tlio weari
ness from contact with lis perspiring
crowds, beyon 1 reach of tho hum of
tho too familiar and overload mos
quito, the summer girl hits found ti con
venient bough from which to swing
her hammock. Her hammock is it
dainty tifTulrof Mexican grasses or of
multi-colored cotton cord, pillowed nntl
vnlanced to tho height of prettlnest
tmd luxurious ean, not to mention iv
lti.lncss which a high temperiittno mid
a saturated ntmosphero make a few of
lift blush to admit.
Tho very latest thing in hammocks Is
dignified hy a name. It is called tho
"royal social," and all because it will
hold two people without mixing them
up. It is warranted to swing a fat per
son and a lean person ut tho same timo
without disaster or danger of spilling
cither, and altogether it seems to be on
hand to meet a long-felt want It is
twico as broad as tho ordinary ham
mock and Is divided exactly In two,
longitudinally, by tho center'H being
drawn tight, so that two hollows, each
with its separate cushion and stretcher,
luro ono or two to tho delights of
killing time as they "swing, swing to
gether to the music of tho breeze."
The valaneo is acquisition to tho or
dinary, cvery-day sort of hammock
that finds ready appreciation. It very
kindly hides any defects of posi
tion that might be comfortablo
except for tho knowledge of Its
awkward appearance, which to ono
sensitive to nppenrancos would bo
a serious drawback. The valance Is
graceful in its itself, and, being woven
of the same colors as compose the ham
mock, it makes for improvement
whether tlio hammock bo in uso or
It is becoming something of n fad for
tho lady of to-day to have strong hooks
in tlio walls or woodwork of her room
and to hang her hammock for her siesta
or to con over the pages of tho last
novel. So much attention is now given
to tho plcturcsqueucss of the negllgo
that so pretty a touch of eastern modes
could not bo omitted. Hut who shall
deny its comfort as even a better raison
Often tho enjoyment of a hammock
is greatly interfered with by a provok
ing absence of shade just when we
most want it. Perhaps there Is ono
convenient trco under which to hang
tho hammock, or, ag.iin, thero may bo
two young trees whoso leafago docs
not protect from the sun. It is an ad
mirable plan under these circumstance
to stretch an aw nlng over the hammock,
for then you can He in the hammock at
all hours in sere nest comfort, perfectly
unconcerned, even if light showers
come up. Make the awning in a form
of an isosceles triangle, cutting olf tho
acute angle at a width of eighteen
inches; sew this end firmly over a rod
or round stick; put a scrow eye into the
middle of tho rod through which to
pass a rope, and tic this end to the tree;
tho other points must have ropo sewed
stoutly to them and be tied to posts,
unless thero Is n second tree, in which
fortunate event they can bo tied to Its
branches. House Furnishing Hevlew.

Iniluccments Are Hold
Young Men to llnlUt.
In Eighth avenue there Is a recruit
ing olllco or tho United States army.
In front of the premises during busi
ness hour is sltuntod an orderly whoso
erect figure, bright, now uniform und
flno soldierly bearing are well calcu
lated to make a favorable impression
upon tlio minds of discontented young
men who may bo taken with a sudden
impulso to enter the servlco of their
country. On tho streets in the neigh
borhood there are gcnorally to bo seen
two or three robust and well-fed young
men In the uniform of privates from
whoso loisuroly manner it might bo
easily inferred that, in time of peace,
at least, tho soldier's lot was quite a
happy one. "Tho whole scheme is a
slick one," was tho remark of an ex
privato who only a few weeks ago re
ceived an honorable discharge from tho
regular army after six years of servfeo
in tho west. "Tho whole schemo is a
slick ouc," he repeated, "and it catches
lots of fellows who are just as fresh
and green as I was when I enlisted in
Philadelphia nearly six years ago.
Young fellows who are out of work or
who nre dissatisfied with their posi
tions, or who arc in a desperate framo
of mind after a spree, or who aro un
happy In their lovo affairs, accidental
ly run across these recruiting oflleers,
and the Idea suddenly pops into tholr
heads that It would bo a mighty nice
thing to join tho army and thus ruu
away from their troubles.
"They sco tho orderly and tho pri
vates in their neat, bright uniforms,
with apparently nothing in the world
to do but to kcop their shoes and
clothes well brushed, and what was at
first merely a vagrant notion becomes
a determined resolution. They apply
for enlistment, and, almost before they
aro awuro of It, havo surrendered a
largo shaio of their personal freedom
and become subjects of military discip
line, 'loo often they seek to retrace
their steps only when It Is too Into, aud
In many cases they begin their army
servlco with a sullen hatred against tho
Hag they havo sworn to follow. Onco
in a while, but not often, a fellow b
exempted or is discharged after ho has
Wen sworn in, but it is generally be
cause ho pleads tho buby act or through
somo pull of his friends ou the war de
partment Hut the natty orderly on
duty in front of tho recruiting ofllco
and tho well-fed privates on tho streets
n,r by -what of them, you ask? Why,
they run tho schemo I spoke of In the
first place Uncle Snm Is tho shrewd
est advertiser In tho business. Ho
places those fellows, wearing new uni
forms, on view to advertise what a
rnyul, free-for-all picnic ho has in stor
for thoso who join the regular army."

"Say," earnestly interrupted tho hun
gry citizen, "ham or any salted meats
are very indigestible; tho follicles"
here tho clock struck two, and the
man took from his pocket a box of pills,
and placing ono carefully on his
tongue, said: "I ato some oatmeal for
breakfast and you know now all scien
tists agree there Is nothing much worse
than oatmeal for the stomach, so I take
this soda-mint pill to counteract the
effects of It."
"Tho devlll" said tho friend, "I

"Oh, no; that was a wrong idea; no

"Well, anyhow, there's one blessed
thing you can always depend on, and
that's milk," said the friend.
A look of horror spread like a plaster
over tho hungry fellow's face. "Milk!
Oood heavens, manl Don't you know
milk Is almost fatal to any one if taken
often; why, I went to one of the first
physicians in this city and he said:

"Well, tho heavens bo pralscdl you've

"That reminds mo," said tho starved
individual, and his hand sought his
other vest pocket, whence It pulled out
a will to folded paper holding a powder,
"I ate a banana last night and I forgot
all about It till now; I must take tills
phcnneitine powder," and ho lapped it
down. "Fruits," ho continued, "are
now eaten only by those who tako tholr
lives In their own hands; strawberries
contain an acid which forms a gaseous
poison which will eventually mnke
umomia and kindred ills. Currants,
raspberries, whortlcborrles, blackber

the hungry citizen. "Why, an orango

ho was assured vegetables were tho

averred tho emaciated man.
