ou HUe my dress ? I'm very glad to lioar It ;
Our "noblest mission Is to please , " you knoH ;
A clear , dark blue how many women wear It I
Brightened with "cardinal" all calico ,
It flts so prettily. If I aid make It ;
I stood before the glass on hour or twc ,
Planning and pinning , fitting and refitting
Before I thought the drapery would do.
What did you say ! "You're very sorry for met"
You need not bo , for I have learned to know ,
As In life's school I read the lessons set mo ,
There are worse tasks than wearing calico.
I have a pair of Htrong , bravo bands to help me ,
A clear , wise brain to work my puzzles out ,
A tender heart to comfort and to love me ,
And I am happy beyond wish or doubt.
If I should die , I know , without a question ,
V That this great heart would "keep my memory
And , whllo I live , within my little kingdom
I reign a loved and undisputed queen.
His cheerful voice has been my sweetest muslo ,
Before his smile my cares and troubles go ;
And for his sake I'll toll you as a secret
I'm proud of wearing "only calico. "
He gave It to ms and I would not change It
For any "combination" Worth may know :
L.ovo'8 rainbow shines upon my simple ward
And that transfigures "only calico. "

ADVICE BY A BUKGLAB
On How to Make Houses Secure
An Ex-Burglar , Writing1 In the Light of
Experience , Gives Some Ideas Which
Architects Might Adopt with Profit
Opinions of Gall Ross.
Things have come to a pretty pass
when an ex-convict in sheer disgust
feels called upon to instruct American
architects how to make houses burglarproof -
proof , says the Chicago News. But
such is the state of affairs , as the fol
lowing interesting communication will
"To THE EDITOR : K you will consider a few
words from one who has been a burglar and
housebreaker , I will say something apropos of
the Lindblom robbery in this city a few days
"The first thing that strikes an 'operator *
from abroad upon his entrance into American
cities is the utter absence of any thing like pro
tection for your houses. Your architects seem
to have lived all tbclr lives in some retired
pastoral village where every one is honest.
They do not seem to understand that one chief
part of their work should bo to build burglarproof -
proof houses a thing which can bo done BO
easily that they ought to be ashamed of their
"Suppose Mr. Snell bad provided his honsa
with light , handsome openwork Iron or bet
ter , steel doors and windows , fastened with
strong cham locks , or Mr. Lindblom had pro
tected his windows with ironwork , do you sup
pose any thief would ever have entered themt
These 'gillies , ' as they are called , are common
all over the old country. "When I was 'doing1
time in an English prison I remember how a
prisoner used to dilate upon the verdancy of
the Americans in not using the same.
"As a health measure one would suppose
that the builders would put in these guards so
that every thing could bo opened to the fresh
air at night. But above all they ought to re
move the temptation of exposed valuables
from us weak mortals. EX-CONVICT.
"Please excuse bad writing from a hand crip
pled by a pistol shot in St. Louis ten years ago. "
This indictment of American builders
for not constructing houses on the burglarproof
lar-proof plan is a matter demanding
some attention. Therefore it has been
thought a good idea to obtain an inter
view with a burglar and see how the
"profession" would look upon the ex-
convict's reform notions.
But first to catch the burglar
There stands at 2G4 Ilonore street an
old , two-story , drab frame house , the
front door of which opens on a level
with the ground. It is one of a row of
six tenements , like many other barrack-
like buildings that were hastily thrown
together immediately after the great
fire. It is here that a Home of Indus
try , a refuge for discharged convicts , is
located. It was established about six
years ago by the reformed burglar ,
"Mike" Dunn , and it is presided over by
Rev. A.C. . Dodds as superintendent. In
the rear of the home is a broom factory
where the convicts are put to work.
The home has room only for those who
desire not to return to their former
A jerk given to the old-fashioned bell-
knob brings to the door a stout woman ,
who scans the caller critically from her
deep-set brown eyes : "Come in , climb
those stairs and go back to the open
door at the end of the hall. "
Rev. Mr. Dodds is found in his narrow
office , seated by a window overlooking
the convict workshop. He has thirty
ex-convicts at work , several of whom
have been well known to the police as
bad criminals. He turns to his book of
record and finds that he has several
burglars in the shop , but he does netlike
like the idea of having them inter
"Any one of them , no doubt , could
relate interesting stories , but I don't
fancy they are at all anxious to do so , "
reasoned Mr. Dodds.
However , he finally whistled down a
tube and commanded the foreman to
send up Gail Ross from the cut-off
"What a name for a burglar ! " mused
the reporter , and before he could form
any idea of a person to fit the literary
cognomen a shadow darkened the glass
door and a short man forty-two years
old , the very image of Editha's burglar ,
entered , bowing.
Mr. Dodds explained the reporter's
mission and the man signified his will
ingness to talk. He spoke with the hint
of a Scotch accent and his language a
college professor could not have dis
"Of course Gail Ross is an assumed
name , is it not ? " asked the reporter.
"Of course it is not , " quickly retorted
the burglar. "Why should I have an
assumed name ? That name was worth
much to me at one tune. It is worth
more now , for it is about all I have
left except a bad cough and an en
"No doubt it seems strange to you
that a burglar should sail under such a
literary name , but why should it ? I was
not always a burglar , and for that mat
ter I don't consider myself irretrievably
one now. When I grew up my name
seemed to look so well whenever I
wrote it that it inspired me with an
ambition to sec it in print. I thought
how I could best set about getting my
name before the public , and began
writing verse. My rhymes were printed
In a New York publication , and some
of them even broke through the quar
antine and got in the magazines. I
imagined I was surely on the road to
fame when I got that far , but whisky ,
"All this has little to do with burglarproof
lar-proof houses , but even a burglar has
not necessarily lost his self-respect com
pletely , and he likes to find an excuse
for being what ho is. I just want to
say one thing , and then I'll give you my
ideas about how houses should be con
structed to keep out the 'profession. '
"As I said , I got to writing poetry ,
and poetry proved my downfall.
Through my verses I met and became
engaged to the daughter of a man that
afterward became Vice-President of
the United States. Don't ask me her
name. I still have enough honor to
protect her from the disgrace of seeing
her name coupled with that of a
burglar. Whisky destroyed my hopes.
"I shipped as pantryman to Liverpool
and I visited many European cities.
Returning to America I became a
burglar simply because it offered great
er inducements than any thing I was
able to tun my hand to.
"But enough of that. The first
burglary I remember of committing
was when my father lifted me over the
fence into a neighbor's yard to steal
flowers. I suppose he didn't think how
bad it really was , but the memory of
that first theft has clung to me always.
Subsequently when I took a notion to
steal something more than flower
namely , to gut a jewelry store I forti
fied myself with a good bracer of
whislcy , 'workefi' the house without a
blush and blamed my father for teach
ing me to steal.
"Now , across the water it is not so
easy to gain access to.a house as here ,
because of the iron screens. In New
York it is hardly less difficult , in my
opinion at least , for the same reason.
However , out West it is not considered
a difficult feat to enter a house , take it
where you may. "
"And you ascribe that to "
"To the way the house is built.
People have learned to protect their
basement windows , as a rule , with
bars , but still this is not always the
case. One would think that a man with
his millions , perhaps , in the bank ,
with his house loaded with costly art
pieces , and a fortune alone , may be , in
diamonds and silverware , would take
every precaution to guard against
burglary , but he doesn't. He imagines
because he never has been robbed that
he never will be. That is about as
much sense as the man had who didn't
want his life insured because he had
"Whenever I took a notion to 'work'
a house I didn't'stop to go and look up
the police record and see if the place
had been 'worked' before. I immedi
ately began laying my plans. A man
with good nerve and a clear head who
works alone ought to be successful. I
always worked alone except once. Then
I was caught and my 'pal' escaped. I
was on the outside and he 'doing' the
job. I took my sentence like a man and
never 'peached' on him. Had I been
'operating' alone I don't think I would
have been caught.
"About making houses burglar-proof
I should first recommend that people
put locks on their doors that can't be
picked with well , with a button-hook.
A burglar depends largely on a skele
ton key to gain access. Men of means ,
however , now have the latch-lock on
their doors , and these can not be picked
that is , not readily. To guard against
entrance by the doors they should be
heavy , should fit tight to prevent work
with a 'jimmy , ' should be double locked
with a chain-lock on the inside and
bolted securely at top and bottom. That
will generally baffle a sneak-thief , who
does not deserve to be called a burglar.
However , when he finds the door effect
ually bars him he can go to the rear ,
climb on a shed , portico , or even 'skin'
up a water-pipe or lightning-rod to a
second-story window. Such a window
is said to be the easiest place of all to
enter a house. That is why there are
so many 'second-story workers , ' as they
are called , but I never tried it my
self. To prevent these fellows all ex
posed windows I mean those opening
on a porch or shed should be well
barred. A 'second-story worker' doesn't
carry tools as a rule. He is a sneak-
The man spoke these words as if the
" " sneak-thieves
"profession" looked on -
as objectionable characters who should
be excluded from the society of honest
"But for iron bars and steel doors , ' *
he contimied , "an expert burglar has
little dread. Give him time and he will
go through any thing. It requires a
genius to circumvent him , and even
genius is not equal to it. And for this
reason : A burglar or safe-blower has
a greater incentive for surmounting the
difficulties hi the way of access to a
treasure than has the inventor for
creating them. The one receives his
reward in the shape of salary ; the other
in working for a fortune , perhaps , that
lies just beyond the barrier which he is
endeavoring to overcome. The burglar
gains a fortune for a few hours' labor ;
the inventor labors for a.year , ar-'l at
the end of that ttime gets barely the
worth of his work. It is a natural law
that where there is the greatest in
centive there will be found the greatest
results of labor. So it is you will find
burglars as smart and even smarter
"For my part I fail to see how you
could make a house absolutely burglar-
proof. You might make it so difficult
of access that the burglar will find an
other to suit his purposes as well. One
thing is certain , however : A rich man
is a fool not to have bars on' his win
dows. They cost little , but they may
save much. "
Niagara Wearing Avray.
Prom the report of the State Engineer
of New York it is learned that Niagara
Falls are receding about two feet every
year. The first accurate survey was
made in 1842 , and since that the total
recession amounts to more than one
hundred feet. This is not strange , con
sidering that two hundred and seventy
thousand cubic feet of water pass over
the falls every second , or over sixteen
million cubic feet per minute.
A SEALSKIN BONANZA.
a Poacher Got Avray with Fifteen
Japan is putting a fin into the sealing
business and will have two fins in nex
year. Rumors of Yokohama's attaining
some position as a sealskin market have
' reached here at odd times , says the San
i Francisco Examiner.
I One of the passengers to arrive by the
steamer China recently was George A
Smith , a veteran whaler , who has been
cruising in northern waters every year
from the time he was able to go to sea
He was not with the whaling fleet this
, year , and when he mingled with his olc
companions after getting ashore he tolc
them talcs of his cruise in the Okhotsk
sea that were more marvelous to sealers
and whalers than any yarns Aladdin
ever concocted about his lamp. Seal
skins formed the basis of his narrative
and he reported his catch at 15.00C
skins. It sounded like a fish story
but Smith had certain evidences with
him in the shape of certified checks anc
authorizations to ship an experiencec
crew , that back up the story.
Briefly told Smith's story is that when
he left here last winter for Yokohama
it was to take command of the ok
bark Nathan S. Perkins , well
known in these waters. His em
ployers were Yokohama capitalists who
had prospected the Siberian coast am
evolved a scheme for loading their ves
sel with sealskins. They wanted a man
to take command who was familiar
with Russian waters and knew how to
ingratiate himself with the natives , am
Smith was selected. Seals were plenti
ful along the upper Japan coast when
he started out , and in hunting the Per
kins did very well. But the big killing
came when Smith reached Robin islander
or Robin bank , geographically speak
ing , just inside the Okhotsk sea , a few
miles from Saghalien island and seven
hundred miles from Petropaulovski.
Smith baited for seals with rum , it is
The Perkins was disguised as a
whaler , and ostensibly put ha at the lit
tle settlement near the rookeries for
water. The Russian officer in charge oJ
the place was invited to take a drink ,
and another drink , until he had quite a
program of drinks. The islanders
were also lavishly entertained with the
Perkins rum , and in a day or two the
entire population ( not a very extensive
one ) , was too happy to care what be
came of the seals. This was kept up
for several days , and in the meantime
every knife on the Perkins was kepi
busy skinning seals. Hundreds were
taken , and when the Perkins finally
sailed it was with the biggest returns
for a few cases of rum that were ever
The same game was played at an
other rookery , and when the old bark
finally dropped anchor at Yokohama
she had fifteen thousand skins in her
hold , according to Smith's count , and
the skins averaged between eleven and
twelve dollars apiece.
A NOVEL LIFE-PRESERVER.
The Clever Device of a Traveling1 Lady to
Save Herself from Drowning.
"While my wife and I were on our
last trip to Europe , " 'said a gentleman
to a Detroit News man the other day ,
"we met a middle-aged lady who was
going over for her health , and my wife
and she became great friends. One day
while sitting in the ladies' private cabin
the lady said : 'Let me show you my
life-preserver , ' and. removing her outer
skirt , my wife beheld a skirt that was a
curiosity if nothing more. Running up
and down the skirt at a distance of two
or three inches , were soft , flexible rub
ber bands about two inches wide. They
were sewed on at the side of each band
and ran all the way around the skirt ,
and at the top they were all joined to a
broad rubber band six inches wide. At
the top of this band was a rubber tube
about two feet long , and which ran up
the waist in front and was left resting
on the top of the corset.
"Said the lady : 'You behold one of
my own inventions for saving my life.
In case of an accident all I have to do is
to take the end of the rubber tube in my
mouth and in two minutes I can fill all
the rubber bands ( which are hollow and
air-tight ) with air. Then , tying the
tube in a hard knot , I am ready for the
waves. This skirt , when I strike the
water , will spread out in the shape of a
pond lily leaf and I will rest on it in an
upright position , as easy as though re
clining on a couch , and I can float
around till picked up. '
"As our voyage was a pleasant one ,
we did not have an opportunity to see
how it would work , but I have no doubt
it would work well. "
ROYAL WHITE MOURNING.
The Revival of an Old Custom Among the
The white mourning of the youthful
Queen of the Netherlands is a revival of
an old custom , says London Truth.
Some ancient orders of nuns , corresponding
spending to the Pas&ionist one for men ,
used to dress hi white. They might be
said to be Good Friday orders , they par
ticularly devoting themselves to com
memorate the event for the keeping in
mind of which th at fast day was institut
ed dying with Christ daily. The ladies
of Port Royal also decided when their
monastery was reformed to wear white
robes only. Mary of England was the
last French Queen who wore white
mourning ; she was Imown as La Reine
Blanche perhaps by old people to dis
tinguish her from Catherine de Medici ,
who was the first regal widow to dress
in black. She borrowed her sable
weeds from Italy , which , far back in
antiquity , took black mourning from
the Eleusinian mysteries. Ceres in
search of Proserpine was in black to
signify the winter season , when nature
is most colorless. Catherine de Medici's
widow's cap was black. The white
widow's cap is now the only survival of
the ancient white mourning. Mary
Stewart followed her mother-in-law in
wearing black after the death of her
first husband. White is more suitable
for the winter wear of a delicate child
in the harsh Dutch climate than black ,
which is cold hi winter , hot in summer ,
and only advantageous in hiding coal
smut and in seemingly reducing the
bulk of stout figures.
