I did not see any of then? and so on all
the time, While I was trying to posh to
the front a grand carriage drove up to
the sidewalk, then another and aaothen
a red carpet was laid down teTtfeeUoot;
there wasa flash of jewels; some bandies
of millinery quickly sprang oat. I
glanced to the coachmen and footmen;
they all bad big posies and satin ribbons
in their buttonholes. Then I knew the
real reason of the crowd. It was ''drawing-
room day" in Regent street. After
being presented at court the beauties
were coming to be photographed.
The London photographers iinillj re
ceive no other customers on that day.
3Icst of the royalists go to Vander
Weyde now. It is a singular fact that
Vander Weyde, with this old historic
Dutch name. Is really an American, who
came to London penniless after the war.
As the carriages rolled up the crowd in
creased. Several ladies in the street tried
to go up, but were repulsed by the grim
servant in livery at the door. When the
Duchess of Marlborough swept in the
excitement became tremendous and I
could stand it no longer, so I found my
self following yards and yards of black
brocatelle, tulle, lace, passementerie, jets
and feathers up the wide staircase to
the little Moorish waiting room.
The American Duchess of "Marlborough
is not pretty, but she has a fine presence,
and carries herself with grace and .dig
nity, and a little self ronsrinnfrnfes or
exalted looks, perhaps. She was dressed
in court mourning, with thff r"gpflwj
family jewels, which were once the lau
rels of a splendid home. I thonght her
dressed in the best taste of any of the
ladies in the gallery. Many portraits of
Lady Randolph Churchill hang about,
from the simple American girl in white
muslin when she first came over to the
more mature woman of the world in her
court dress, with the star of India blaz
ing on her bosom. The magnificent
Duchess of Leinster was there, with her
head lifted like a great stag on the alert.
Her pictures do not do her justice. She
must be seen in the flesh to appreciate
ber color as well as her form.
I heard one stoat lady of past 40 sap
"Oh, yOU wanghy Amtmrr, boj, why
don't you make me look like Adelaide
Detchon or Dorothy Daae? These are
two professional beauties that Vander
Weyde iias made famous. A good deal
is expected from him sometimes. Most
of his pictures are taken by electric light,
and by the use of colored glass which
aoftexu and subdues the lines of the face
and gives to the skin of each woman its
loveliest natural color, and makes some
plain women look beautiful
My hour lengthens to two or three,
then, when all the trains have departed,
I was taken to the studio, where the
work of the real artist is seen one might
almost say he is a photographer only in
play, an artist in earnest, for while he
often rushes down to pose some impor
tant person he gets back to his painting
as soon as he can, and sometimes works
nntfl after midnight, forgetting club and
We bad tea from some dainty cups of
egg shell porcelain, and I asked him how
he became interested in photography. It
was by an accident a terrible accident.
He was a Seventh regiment boy. In
the war he was captured, and was in
Ltbby prison for more than two years.
He was always of an inventive genius,
nd could not be idle even amid the
horrors which surrounded him. While
thire he conceived some inventions which
made him a fortune when he came out.
Then he spent five years hi European
travel, and visited many then little ex
plored countries. A sudden change swept
away his fortune, lie was in London
and wondering what to do; chance took
hint into a photographer's. He was told
he could not be taken that day, it was
too foggy. Without thinking he said:
"Could not one be taken by artificial
light?" "There would be a fortune for
the man who could invent one," the
clerk replied. That night he went to
work. His first idea was to collect the
rays of the son in a gigantic irng
glaat; at great rrpenew he had one con
structed, hollow and filled with water.
The room for experiment was in a north
light; had it been under the son's rays
the monster glass could have melted a
man to a grease spot.
One day while he was seeking there
came a terrific explosion, the glass
burst, he was knocked down and deluged
with water, one of the fragments pierc

severed an artery, while the blood sport

house, hearing the noise, rushed to the

An aspect of our subject, however, be
fore matters reach their marrying stage,
is the effect of music upon the emotions,
especially love, or vice versa, and the
stimulus it gives to affairs of the heart
generally. I have seen it stated some
where that there are more marriages
among the class of people who dabble in
quavers and harmonies, and who come
under that very pliable term "musical,'
than any other. If this be true, it ought
to be possible to account for it. Why is
it? It is hard to see, especially at the
financial outlook, for the. average mu
sician is certainly not, so far as my ex
perience goes, such as to warrant wo
men seeking husbands in this walk of
life, and money, I believe, constitutes
an important factor in the matrimonial
question, whichever side be viewing it.
Most people, probably, will be prepared
to say that the opportunities for flirting
are greater, and perhaps the solution of
the problem may as well be found in this
as any other. However the matter be
solved, musical annals certainly furnish
a considerable roll of flirtations suf
ficient, indeed, to tempt many to think
that after all the class of whom I am
keeping the divorce law in existence.
There is no end to the tales. Even that
straight laced gentleman, Haydn, whose
pious habit of inscribing his scores with
bits of reverent Tathr, wuT go down to
posterity, and who, if this failed, would
always be held sacred for his oratorio,
"The Creation" even be fell in love
with Mile. Boselli, despite his wife and
his piety. He had her portrait painted,
and satisfied all her little whims and
fancies, which, like those of all prime
donne. were not, of course, inexpensive
ones. Good old, but inconstant, Haydn!
Ban Xa m Bight to Liberty?
The anarchists of today have poshed
the old dogma of natural liberty to the
extremest form of abstract deduction,
and they propose to make it a programme
of action. They therefore make of it a
principle of endless revolution. If, how
ever, the basis on which it once rested is
gone, it is impossible that we should hold
and use it any more. With oar present
knowledge of history, we know that no
men on earth ever have had liberty in
the sense of unrestrictedness of action.
Tlie very conception is elusive. It is im
possible to reduce it to such form that it
could be verified, for the mason that it is
non-human, non-earthly. It never could
exist on this earth aad among these men.
The notion of liberty and of the things
to which it pertains has changed from
age to age in modern history.
Never in the history of the world has
military service weighed on huge bodies
of men as it doss now on the men of the
European continent It ia doubtful if it
would ever nave been endured. Yet the
present victims of it do not appear to
consider it mconavtent with liberty.
Sumptuary laws about draw would rake
a riot in any iinteii state; a pro
hibitory law would have raised a riot
among people who did sot directly re
sist sumptuary laws. A errQ officer in
France, before the revohsfdon, who had
bought or inherited his oflsce, had a de
gree of dependence sad liberty in it
which the Niaeteeath oantary official
never dreams of. On the contrary, the

TO GET A GOOD SLEEP.
A BOON FOR WHICH MANY WOULD
HAVE GIVEN ALL THEY HAD.
Blewed be the man who
sleep." exclaimed Baacho Pants, philo
suphicai squire of the redoubtable Son
(juixote. Aad no oae appreciates thk so
much as tha'asJortamato individual af
flicted with ineoasnia.
A remedy for sleeplessness should be
known by every one, since there ie noth
ing which wul so soon wear oat the en
tire system as being unable to sleep
soundly. "Sleep knits op the raveled
sleeve of care," said Macbeth,
-a pliiloaophy bora of
since his conscience made sleep a
to his eyelids, and he was verging on
madness We have all felt, at some time
or other, the truthfulness of Young's
thought that sleep, "tired nature's sweet
restorer," was like the rich, "his ready
visit pays where fortune smiles," while
lie "flies from woe and lights on lids un
sullied with a tear."
A SEKIOCS BUTTES.
Sleeplessness is dangerous. It will pre
vent the rebuilding of the body after
sickness and will waste away the most
robust if not checked. And, worse than
all. it is a prolific source of madness. To
become unable to sleep soundly or even
reasonably well is cause for. serious
alarm, it is also a source of great suf
fering. Any remedy, therefore, which
will induce sleep to kiss the eyelids
which have wooed the drowsy god in
vain will prove a boon to every one.
The causes of insomnia are legion, but
outride of general nervous debility and
clironic disorder of the nervous system,
whether caused from mental or nervous
diheaae, or from some injury to the
nerve centers, the causes of sleeplessness
may be put down as anything that
causes the blood to flow to the brain in
increased quantities. Strong physical
exercise, rapid hrreitliing-nrfWpthniTht
will, according to the best authorities,
conduce to bring about a state of sleep
lessness. And unless checked it will
grow until it becomes very serioust
It may be stated, as a fact overlooked
by many who find themselves unable to
sleep, that their insomnia arises from
carelebness on their part in failing to
observe certain easily ascertained rules
in regard to sleeping.
The body cannot sleep while the brain
is excited. Anything which will dimin
ish the flow of blood to the brain will
allay excitement. Very deep, slow and
quiet respiration will soothe the brain
to a great degree, and. at the same time,
serve the purpose of detracting the at
tention of the mind from the matters
which may disturb it.
Moderate heat, monotony of sound
and darkness tend to make one sleepy.
The only effect of darkness is to shut out
external objects and thus assist in quiet
ing tlie mind. The notion that sleep ob
tained in the daytime is not beneficial
has no reason to support it. Sleep is
sleep, and if one can sleep soundiv and
well in the day time it serves the same
purpose as sleep obtained at night. But
few people can do this on account of the
light and noise. Hence the old but er
roneous idea that only sleep at night
could thoroughly rest and recuperate the
body and mind after their labors. This
is abundantly proven in the case of in
fants and convalescents. Both sleep in
the day time equally as well as at night,
and both grow more while sleeping than
Cool, fresh air is the best to sleep in.
fiXtreme neat ana closeness of tne air
tend to prevent sleep, as does profuse
perspiration. The teeth should be well
cleaned and the mouth rinsed before
going to sleep. After all these necessary
rules have been observed, and still sleep
refuses to come at tho bidding of the
pleading eyelids, one may be sure they
are suffering from insomnia, and should
seek to induce sleep by any means. But
how to do this has been the question
with many, and physicians are called in
and soothing potions taken, all of which
will fail in nine cases out of ten. But
what, then, is to be done? This is what
thousands of sleepless persons have
asked, There are many sure and simple
The most celebrated remedy was that
of a Mr. Gardner, of England. It was
known to the entire reading world about
thirty years ago, bat having been out of
print in recent years only older people
remember it. Physicians who make a
Baffin Ity of nervoos diseases are familiar
with it, and recommend it in nearly all
esses where a patient suffers from in
somnia. Mr. Gardner was a man of wealth and
culture, and had accumulated a number
of remedies, such as for allaying thirst
where liquids could not be procured, for
temporarily appeasing the pangs of
hunger, and for improving the eyesight
by various ingeniously contrived glas;
He became a great sufferer from insom

In 1864 a hot headed French inventor

thedrals, including a peal of bells, to be
constructed entirely of paper. From
chimes to cannons was but one step, and
the Gallic inventor announced hk readi
ness to supply a train of artillery of any

fect boom just now, and k proving a fine
material in the hands of architecta and
builders for several uses, inside and out.
Tlie advantages, briefly stated, are: Con
tinuity of surface, or its adaptability for
making into rolls of almost any width
and length and flexibility; or by glning
several layers together it may be made
stiff, and will stop the passage of air be
cause of the absence of joints; unlike
wood, it has no grain, and will not split;
it k unaffected by change of tempera
ture, and thus has an advantage over
sheet metal for roofing materials; though
in its natural condition it k affected by
moisture, it can be rendered waterproof
by saturating with asphalt or by various
other methods; being a non-resonant
body, it k well fitted to prevent the pas
sage of sound; it k a non-conductor of
heat, and can also be made of incom
bustible material, like asbestos, or ren

Only one city in the world has ever
undertaken by legal supervision to put
every house under positive and absolute
sanitary control, and that city k Buenos
Ayres. The purpose k within, three
years to have thk accomplished. By no
other means can a city be rendered safe
for residence, and in no other way can
the law that city residence rapidly de
generates the population be reversed.
The matter of sanitation cannot in any
phase of it be left to individuals; it must
be a public provision, rigidly enforced.

and smokers," said a La Salle street to
bacconist, "but there are some things
that haven't been told yet. For ia
stance, do you know that 'dry smoking
k on the increase? A dry smoke k mak

on it with the teeth until the last particle

"What k the origin of thk.habk?
asked ths reporter, ss he sealed away at
a fragrant Havana the cigar, dealer had
pansed over to him.
"In nearly every case it begins with
heart scare. Yon see, ia some f brass of
dyspepsia the distends with
wind and presses a trifle against the
heart. The smoker turns pale as he re
flects that the red corpuscles of the blood
have become triangulated, as hk scien
tific doctor told him they would, and
now he must give up smoking if he
would live. Bat giving up smoking k.
with most tobacco users, far easier said
man done. Then comes the compromise.
The frightened smoker holds the cigar in
hk mouth but does not light it. Every
nerve in hk body k a-quiver, and noth
ing but the extract of tobacco will allay
that nervousness. The teeth press down
upon the unlighted torch, the nicotinous

into lus system by that practice as by the
other in many cases more."
"Can a man get away with many ci
gars in that way?"
"I should say so. I have a customer
a well known attorney who buys
daily a box of twenty-five imported Ha
vana cigars, for which he pays me $4.50,
or eighteen cents apiece. He k wealthy
and can afford the expense. He dry
smokes these cigars pretty thoroughly,
too. I have another customer a real

every one of them himself Should he

things, and he will smoke no more and
no less than the number mentioned."

broker, who confirmeil the statement,

were in any wise affected by the large
number of cigars he smoked.

"L there such acute taste as that in
cigars? Is it possible for a man to be
educated up to a particular brand, sc
that he can enjoy no other?"
"Imagination plays a big part in that
particular. A certain brand which has
had a big run will suddenly grow un
popular. Smokers will declare the
quality has depreciated, but such knot
tne case. Any honest manufacturer will
seek above all things to rnamtnin the
quality. If s imagination. I demon
strated that once to my entire satisfac
tion. I had an excellent brand, which
for convenience 111 call the 'EscuriaL'
but it palled on my customers taste.
Knowing it to be a splendid cigar, the
qest quality of goods I carried, I got the
manufacturer to change the name to
well, let me call it The Amber,' and at
once those who had rejected it under an
other name took to it handsomely. That
was a year ago, and I hare no more
popular cigar in my entire stock."
"Has the color of the wrapper any
thing to do with the strength of cigars?"
"It has very little. Yoa wiH observe
how small a part of the weight it k. It

determines the quality of a cigar's

wrapper, neither of which constitutes a

Some twenty years back we had a
poodle white, with one black ear. Af
ter tlie manner of hk nice, he was never
quite happy unless he carried something
in hk mouth. He was intelligent and
teachable to the last degree. The great
defect in hL character wo the impossi
bility of distinguishing meum from tu
um. Anything he could get hold of he
seemed to think, according to hk dogged
ethics, to be fairly lus awn. On one oc
casion he entered the room of one of the
maid servants and stole her loaf of bread,
carefully shutting the door after him
with hk feet, the latter part being a feat
I had taught him.
The woman Irish was scared and
thoaght that the dog was the devil in
carnate. The necessity of discipline ou
the one hand and of occupation on the
other induced me one day to enter a
saddler's shop, situated in a straight
street about Iialf a mile from our house,
and buy a whip. Shortly after my re
turn home he admitted some act of petty
larceny, so I gave him a beating with
tlie whip be had carried home. Going
for a walk next day, the dog. as usual,
accompanied me. and was intrusted with
the whip to carry. Directly we got out
side the door he started off at hk best
pace straight down the street, paying nc
attention whatever to mv repeated calls.
He entered the saddler's shop and de
posited the whip on the floor. When I
arrived the saddler showed me tlie whip
lying exactly where the dog had depos
ited it. The Spectator. fc
Auburn Haired Girl.
All young women pohsosnod of red "
can remember that in the days of their
childhood their hirsute adornment was a
source of mocking merriment to theii
friends, and the term "sorrel top" or
"strawberry blonde" was one of con
tempt. They wondered, perhaps, why
it was that they were always called "red
headed," when their playmates were de
scribed as being black, brown or golden
haired. But the "red headed" girls don't
mind now that it k every young wo
man's ambition to be auburn haired, and
she hopes by the use of hair dyes tc
attain the shade which belonged to the
wicked Lucretia. If she gets exact
ly the right siiade she does not see
why a single thread of her hah
might not be preserved by the United
States government and exhibited as k
the one so proudly shown in Florence as
having belonged to the wicked Lucretia.
It k odd how many famous women have
had thk Titian red hair. Catherine ot
Russia gloried in it, and Anne of Austria
had brown hair just on the verge of
being red. Ninon deLEnclos was equally
proud of her warm colored tresses, and
Mary Stuart seemed a daughter of the
sun. Jane Hading and Mrs. Potter both
have warm auburn hair, but it does not
reach the real tinge, which k that which
crowned, in all her glory, the head of
the Empress Eugenie, she who has known
the extreme of happiness and of sadness.
