INCREASE OF LONDON HOTELS. I'rcncnt Cnraratmnry Accommodation * of the WorM'rt Cupitul. With a population of 0,500,000 , Ixm- Son harbors evt'ry day 1J0,000 ! stran- fern. Some may remain a week , some t month , but all the year around there Is an aver.ijic of 120,000 visitors who ire within me metropolitan boundar ies. No citj In the world can exhibit luch a proportion a second's consider- itlon will show that it is stupendous. The lirst thing arising Is , Where Is this army harborcdV Itoughly It maybe bo said to bo spread out all over Lon don , but when particular inquiry comes to bo made It Is found that only 70 per cent of the gross total actually ipoud the night In the metropolis , while less than 17,000 put up at recognised hotels. In other words , 17,000 persons bngagcd hotel rooms yesterday in Lou- flon , while over US.OOO stopped In pri vate houses or with friends. These figures have not been achieved hur riedly or without much Inquiry and dllllculty , owing to the lack of ready facilities established by law. In Paris very guest of a hgtel or lodging-house Is obliged on his or her arrival to till up a term issued by the police , , wherefrom - from the precise number of dally visit ors to the city can be ascertained al- most to a unit. It is different in Lon don. don.Fifteen Fifteen years ago the Cecil , the SaVoy - Voy , the Mutropolc , the Victoria , the Grand , and the Klrst Avenue hotels had not been built. The daily hotel "ar rivals llftccii years ago did not aver age 1,200. A hotel with llfty bedrooms was a monster caravansary , and the richest and most aristocratic foreign- crs were compelled to put up with apartments , or else the dirt and incon venience of the little hostchlcs which Were thickly dotted throughout Albe- murlo street , Dover street , and the jELinovcr square quarter Including that marvelous institution known as blarldge's. Nowadays we h'ave the Cecil , with COO rooms ; the Mctropolc , Jrlth 2T 0 ; the Grand , with 200 , and the Bavoy , with 800 ; to say nothing of the Yust hive of hotels In Kensington and Bayswatcr. The recognized hotels of London have no fewer than 18,500 bedrooms , with Accommodation for 23,000 guests , or 80,000 at a pinch. , Of private hotels and boarding- bouses of the first class there are 2,200 , With accommodation for 38,000 visit ors. Altogether 280,000 visitors can bo accommodated In London at hotels and boarding-houses alone. If we add Vpartmonts the total would reach three-quarters of a million. | No moro forcible illustration of the growth of hospitable llondon In'recent years can be cited than by the slmplo ( Statement that In 18S1 the hotel ac commodation called by courtesy first- class , could provide quarters for only 4,000 persons. Perhaps not the least Interesting clr- ( Cumstanco In connection with the ho tel accommodation of the world's me tropolis is IN practical confinement [ within a llm MM ! snherc If we draw n half-mllo circle about the Nelson statue , we are inclosing a vast popula- tlon which Is shifting Its habitat in- coHsnntly. Tradesmen nowadays do not live over the shop , so that if wo BUbtract the tradesmen wo find that jtho parish of Savoy is almost entirely composed of waiters , cooks , and chain 'berniaids. ' Judged resldentlally , it la the most marvelous under the sun , for It shifts Its population every week. Its 10,000 Inhabitants of last week etc to-day scattered over Europe ; and Sts residents of last month are to-day Jin Russia , in Montana , in India , and In Japan. London Mall. Caught , Cold in a Dream. Of course , says the Louisville Courier- Journal , when the young matron said ( that a dream was responsible for her jcold , everybody became interested. PDreams arc always interesting , some- [ times Intensely so , but one that actual ly resulted In something and left some ( tangible trace was indeed novel. 1 "You know , " shu said , "that I have jjust returned from my old home from a ( visit to old friends , and the familiar flcenes may have been responsible for the dream. At any rate , In my dream 1 'saw the lightning and heard the thun der , and realized that a storm was np- preaching.Thcn raindrops began to fall. The rainfall'became ' heavier at every Instant , until I thought that there Jiad been n cloudburst. All this I saw In my dream. "Then suddenly , and still dreaming , I [ heard a crash and thought that the Jlmb of an apple tree , heavily loaded "with fruit , had broken , and I could see the luscious fruit lying on the ground. I Imagined that I hastily arose and ran to gather the fruit. I remember that I threw R light wrap about me , but 1 was drenched. " She of the cold stopped , and one of toer auditors turned with a look of dis appointment. "I don't see anything ex traordinary In that , " she said. "Oh , but let "me finish. The dream jwas so vivid that I awoke startled. lA.nd , what do you think couldn't talk. I had such an awful cold that my voice Iras temporarily lost. " lljltornlm-e in Georgia.

Fact was the walking skirt , , wni the main fea ture und really set the standards for nearly nil such costumes. In ratlu-r loss degree this lins been true in the present smmnor , but severity has been losing its pHp gradually , and an occasional "pic- turc" outing girl , while in the strongest possible contrast to the others , lint * not seemed altogether out of place. Tbo cou- bciiucncc is that in the outing suits plan ned for curly fall , the picture girl is re- niuuiburod , mid the plain walking skirt of dull color Ls almost forgotten. Since the newer skirt's length is about that of the plainer one , no fault can be found on that score , while in the matter of ap pearances a great improvement will bo Three examples of the picture outing suits an- put in the lirst large sketch. They may not wem as suited to roughing It and to physical liveliness as were tlie suits of smnnu'r , nor are they , perhaps , so harmonious with the browned arms th.it the summer girls have been acciiilving , but they're n lot prettier than their pred ecessors. First is shown a white serge gown , the skirt finished with u baud of red and white striped cloth headed with n iloral de'sign in white soutache. Th > jacket fastened in front with white silk frogs and was of the striped material , with a sailor collar of white pique em broidered in red.

Some have a Ineo | willor collar , hut more have collurs of the silk. IMtti-k tnffetii is still popular. ( Jra s linens mul silk pongees are worn extensively , but are not as elaborate us ore the silk ones. During the summer u general step has been takentoward , elabo rateness , anyhow , ami It Is likely tint this garment will set Its stump on the costly and highly wrought coats ot next winter. Handsome little boleros of white cloth are worn u deal with outing costume * . They are cutaway in front and are fin ished with bands of bright silk or oriental passementerie. The sailor collar is gen erally finished in the siime manner. Kven now white cloth dresses are an impres sive feature of the summer dress show tor suits of white anil of biscuit cloth lire made with rcintirknblc elaborateness. Handsome white canvas cloth dressis have the Spanish llounces caught with medallions of cream lace , the spaces be tween the Ince being filled with graduated bands of Imlf-lnch black velvet ribbon. All shades of tans , biscuits and browns PICTUKHSQUENESS AGAIN TO DOMINATE. are worn , the eggshell shade being very popular and making up very beautifully. This shade is trimmed with the same color of silk hemstitching , tiny steel se quins being sewed to the edge of the lat ter. Many of the skirts are niatlo with three or four half-inch tucks at the bottom tom and with pleated sides. Skirls do not show lace trimming very extensively , but instead have black \clvct or some design embroidered in oriental colors. Thc e last trimmings apparently are to be in the height of fashion for the au tumn , ami are reflected In the stylish dresses nude for the end of summer. A trio of those are put here by the artist. At the left is a black dotted organdie trimmed with heavy cream lace. Next appears limn colored batiste figured with pale blue and trimmed with white lace in sertion run with black velvet ribbon. A cadet blue canvas veiling was the third model , tucking , bands of black taffeta and white nainsook embroidery ornament ing if. Hlaek gauze gowns are numerous. They are striped with black velvet over the en tire skirt above und below a wide band of black or cream lace appliquod at cither edge.

The phenomenon was explained on natural grounds. The same tiling may happen again under similar circumstances , though such an occurrence would at tract more wondering visitors , probably than docs the great cataract now as It roars and surges and Hashes In the sun light from century to century. It must suggest to most people a surprise of hardly less degree to be informed that Lake Erie Is In danger of becoming HO shallow as to offer serious obstacles to navigation. AVe can conceive of the Niagara being dammed at Its source , but few have ever dreamed that the vast expanse of water which furnishes It its life current would ever Perceptibly shrink. That la the startling report , how ever , that the chief engineer of the Ma rine Department of Canada has Just made. He has returned to Ottawa from a tour of Inspection of the upper lakes , and states that Lake Erie Is lower than was ever known to be the case before. I Tills condition IH due. he thinks , to a' ' Kcrlcs of dry seasons , to the drain made by the power development works j at Niagara Falls and to the fact thai dredging the Tounwnnda canal has made It easier for water to escape from the lake. lie considers It Imperative that the United States government ! adopt remedial measures at an early. date , else navigation upon Its present basis will be uerlonsly Interfered with , j He offers no suggestions as to what remedies should be applied. The sea-1 sons are not likely to remain always" , dry , thought when a body of water like \ this great Inland sea Is appreciably af j fected It Is about ( ho most startling commentary yet noted upon the policy , of stripping the country of its rain- gatherers in the forests of the North- ' west. Lake Erie at best IH one of the shallowest of the great chain. There' ' are three divisions in Its floor , increas ing its deptli toward Its outlet. The upper portion has a level lloor with an average depth of about thirty foot1 The middle portion , taking In the prin cipal part of the lake , has'a mean depth' ' of , from sixty to seventy feet. Tlia ' lower portion varies from l0 ! to 'J10 feet. Those measurementK were taken a number of years ago and are not ap plicable to the reduced depth that hua been reported. The area of the lake IH ! ) , < ! 00 miles , or moro by nearly a fourth than that of tho. State of Massachusetts. Hut It drains only a narrow margin ot country around It and receives no rlv- urs of Importance , the Mauinee being the largest on the American Hide. It la more than 300 feet higher than Lake Ontario. It is one of the most Import ant factors In our byhtem of lake mul gallon , and furnishes business fin many nourishing towns and eltle.s. The present report concerning It may be a false alarm , a passing sensation , though we do not expect representa tions for the sake of heusation from scientific gentlemen In government ser vice. No harm can come from a care ful investigation of the conditions , tc say the least. Boston Transcript. A Helpful Hint.
