whose place of business Is In room 18. Herald
building. To the writer Mr. Matthews vms re
lating some of hli experience , and being nc-
( mnlnted for some time with Mr. .Matthews ho
ked him to tell him now It was that he
lost the hearing of his loft car.
"Why , don't you know that I have regained
my hearing ngnln ? I see you did not know It ,
10 I must tell you , but 1 must llrst tell you how
Host It. "
The two lit their cigars and snt down for a
peed chat , nnd Mr. Matthews continued his
narrative. "You see , while I wus In the nnvy as
a powder monkey my duties ofti'nrcqulred that
1 down ut the turret nnd whllo down tnere
every discharge of the gun makes an awful
concusflon and to us pour monKcyi In those
turrets it wax strong enough to knock us down
sometimes. I noticed that my ears wore be
coming affected by llm dlschurgu of the gun
nery und I went to the surgeon" onboard , who
told me that he could do nothing for me except
that 1 had better use cotton in my ears. 1 did
RO and to that , I think , 1 ow o the hearing of my
right ear. After my retirement from the navy
mv left ear continued to grow worse uud 1 lott
the hearing of It entirely. In my business 1
travel considerably and have had an oppor
tunity to consult some of the llnest aurlstsln
the country and 1 did consult them too , nnd I
presume that I have had two dozen of them
working on my ears , but they told me one uud
nil that the drum was entirely destroyed anil I
would never be able to hear again. 1 got nccus-
' > med to hearing with only tllo one ear , and
hud about mude up my mind that I
never would hoar again with my left
car. I became acquainted with a young mnn
who is connected with Dr. McCoy in the
Knmge Illock , nnd he became tired , he Bald , of
having to repeat his conversation to me andtold
me to come up and have the doctor examine my
ear and see whnt he could do for It. I only
laughed at him nnd did not go , but n few weeks
ngo the car commenced discharging again nnd
1 went to Dr. McCoy's olllce to have It attended
to ; ho examined my car and said that the drum
was ulmost entirely distroyed. nnd that lie did
not know OH hu could ilo anything for It , but
that he would do hat ho could for It ; no healed
th car up , und then mr.ilo nil npparatus to put
into the ear which he placed there and 1 could
hear at once , I heard a watch tick held one foot
from the left ear , something I had not done for
tHtinty years. 1 thought porlinps It was with
the right carl heard It , und closed that ear up ;
and 1 was very agreeably surprised to hear It
very plainly with the left car. Of course It will
take borne little time until I become accustomed
to wearing the apparatus In my ear , but I v 111
soon overcome that. It Is very neat and ns you
can tell cannot be seen at all. Voa would not
Know there was anything In my car unless I
would pull it out , but if I pull It out I ranuot
hear , HO I kept It In , and I hear now as well ns I
ever did. 1 am very glad 1 took my friend's urt-
vice and went to BOO the doctor for ho hnsdono
for mo what many another has tried to do and
failed. 1 am moro thin snllslledlth the
way ho treated me and feel balls ll'-d that any par-
eon that places him or herself under his tieat
ment will never lia\e causH to regiet It. "
The writer thanked Mr. Matthews for his kind
ness and asked him whether ho would object to
having his conversation published In the form
of a testimonial.
"Not at nil , " continued that gentleman , "you
can publish It and welcome , nnd Just ndd forme
that I ! there is anyone who doubt * the truth of
it they may call on me at room 18 Herald build

Graphic : A woman with every other
natural charm is not beautiful \vlthotita
niOutli that adds a now surges tlvoness
o her loveliness. She ceases to bo oven
pretty if , when she speaks , her breath
H hot and feverish , or , worse still , Is
Naturally she docs not know this , and
it is only proper that somebody belong-
to her should toll her. If it conies from
ior teeth it is something quickly rem
edied. If it cornea from her digestion
then it is her doctor's business to
pot her in good order : ' but often
in this country of invalid women
it comes from the use of strong medi
cines. Physicians advise for this the
use of lemons , claiming that they are
the most purifying of till fruits , ami the
aromatic odor produced by lemons
rubbed on the teeth , gums and lips lasts
longer than any other. For a feverish
breath that results from the' stomach a
few drops of lime water used as a gar
gle , or , bettor still , a half teaspoonful of
bicarbonate of soda in a little watorwill
have the desired effect.
Half the badly. shaped mouths that
are the sorrows of the young women of
to-day result from their being por-
niltcd when they were children to suck
ihoir lingers. One of the prettiest wo-
non in town has coarse , thick lips that
came from being allowed , when
she was going to sleep , to put
her thumb in her mouth. While another ,
whoso lips protrude in the center , und
whoso mouth is largoblaraos her mother
Tor allowing her to find consolation in
licr two forefingers. If persuasion will
not break a child of this habit , then
stronger means should bo resorted to ,
and if necessary its hands should bo
tied together. Another unfortunate
habit among school girls , and
ono which results in thickening the
lips and making them supersensitive , is
the continual biting of the lower hp.
The entire shape of the face is spoiled
in this way , for when nature molded it
there was not the intention that the
lower lip should bo larger and a coarse
look given to the faoo.
Red lips are the announcement of
good health , and good health is the
fashion. Women who have very deter
mined wills frequently got into the bad
habit of drawing their lips together in a
way they think expresses determination.
The lips are pliable ami naturally as
sume the position which is oftonest
given to them , so she who feels on
pleasant terms with the world at largo ,
who makes it a point only to say pleas
ant things , will have about her mouth
that something that .tho French call
riunto the loolc that tells of n laugh
without the sound , and a smile that is
not a smirk. With all his gallantry it
took a Frenchman to say this : " To bo
beautiful a. woman must not tulle much

Table Talk : Despite the universally
conceded fact that a man's house is his
castle , nnd that it is the ono spot on
earth where ho can exorcise individual
taste , it is yet governed by Fashion's
rules , that ho obeys almost without re
alizing. Fashion is a wily dictator. Its
laws are stringent , yet so subtle that its
subjects follow them half consciously ;
cheered continually by the false hope
that they are themselves the origina
tors of the many pretty fancies nnd com
fortable improvements they introduce
into their homes. But wo must assort
that fashion is despotic ; it rules our
homos from collar to garret , from floor
The custom of carpeting floors , that
is , nailing down carpets over the entire
expanse , is comparatively a now ono.
Time was whan in all handsomely fur
nished houses the lloors wore polished
and inlaid with colored woods , while
rich rugs ol eastern manufacture , wore
spread about. The many advantages of
tliis fashion nro again making them
selves felt. First , und foremost , there
is the advantage of cleanliness. It is u
recognized fact that health demands
movable floor coverings ; coverings that
can bo taken up every di\y \ or two , and
thoroughly shaken. Another argu
ment in favor of rugs appeals stronly to
slender purses. A cheap rug wears a
great deal bettor than u cheap carpet ,
and somehow they are far moro artistic
in design. The former advan
tage is doubtlcs gained because
the rug is him ply laid not |
stretched into position ; and the
fibres therefore , are not strained in the
least. But , let it bo added , a rug to ap
pear well must bo hold steadfastly in
position ; bo there one or several In a
room a sulliclontly weighty piece of fur
niture jhould bo placed on it , or thorn ,
to hold position. A kicked-up rug gives
an untidy air to a whole room. As a
matter of artistic decoration , a room is
badly furnished , if the floor covering is
the most conspicuous object upon enter
ing , and it is with a degree of thankful
ness that wo realize tbut wo are seldom
nowadays called upon to trample over
huge , gorgeous-colored "parterres , " or
green branches of trees , alive with gay-
plutnnged birds ; India rugs , us they
are among the most costly , uro also
among the most desirable. Like
the India shawls they com
bine every color of the rainbow ,
but BO artistically are the colors
blended that they molt ono into the
other almost imperceptibly , and the
whole effect is subdued us well as rich.
Smyrna rugs are gayer in coloring ;
they are known to the trade as "On-
shalc , " nnd uro easy of imitation , so
that many cheap specimens are in the
market. It takes u connoisseur , however -

The Hustle Is Going Out.
Now York World : Have you noticed
the peculiar kind of a one-two-threo
step of ladies before they sit down , fol
lowed by a backward motion , a curious
jerking of the skirts and then a grace
ful sinking down into the seat ? If you
have , you have also noticed how the
ladies frequently rise suddenly from
their scats , shako themselves with an
odd kind of a little movement nnd then
sit down. Both of these movements uro
duo to the bustle.
And now the news comes from Wash
ington that Mrs. Cleveland has con
cluded to discard the bustle. Of course
it is of vital interest to every woman
in the land. Everything connected
with this important question has been
discussed by the Now York ladies.
Fat and lean , old and young , rich nnd
poor , they all wear bustles , and they
are all anxious to know whether they
will continue to wear them.
It was with the desire of learning all
there was on this subject that a re
porter visited the leading fashionable
dressmakers yesterday to jind out what
was the tendency and drift in bustles.
"Mrs. Cleveland's departure , " said _
Redforn , "has attracted profound in
terest in Now York , and may affect
bustles in the fall. You know bustles
uro gradually growing smaller and
smaller. This is the tendency abroad ,
and wo get all ouV fashions from thoroi
Wo use a cushion instead of the store
bustle and it can be made of the sumo
material ns the gown. It is mndo of silk ,
usually , and is stuffed with horse-hair
und then quilted. It is sowed in under
the foundation of the skirt. Two stools
are sowed in this foundation also.
Over these are druncd the dress.
The first is sowed in nine indie's
below the waist , the second boven
inches. They have strings attached to
the bustle being enlarged or decreased.
Now , to show you now the bustle is de
creasing in size , those steels n year ngo
wore twenty-three and twonty-soven
inches long respectively. Now they are
only seventeen and twenty-one , and
they are constantly growing _ smaller.
"Is there any dilToronco between
bustles for fat ladies and lean ones ! "
"Very much. A very fat lady will
have only a slight hint of a bustlo. You
see she does not need much to accom-
moduto her form , while n very lean ,
thin lady needs all she can got. "
"Mrs. Cleveland is probably assisting
to kill what would bo at an end in a few
moro years , if signs mean anything.
Bustles hnvo had a long run. They
came in about seven years ago , und suc
ceeded tno princess robes. You remember -
bor them. I supposoV They were skin
tight. I have boon thorn so tight n lady
couldn't stop moro than twelve inches.
Bustles wore first merely frilled horse
hair. Then they grow larger until two
years ago , when they reached their
"To sit down with a bustle is an art.
You have noticed ladies sitting down at
the theater , I suppose ? Now I shall
show you how a lady ought to sit down ,
with a medium-sized bustle , so as not to
attract attention. " A young lady was
called in from , an adjoining room , she
was asked to sit down , und she bunk into
a chair without the slightest effort.
"How do you manage it so easily i1"
asked the reporter , lost in admiration of
the simplicity of the motion so unus
"It is very simple , " answered the
young lady , quietly pushing her dross
around with her hand to properly locate
the bustlo. "You see , I simply lot the
stools touch the side of the chair ns I
sink into it , then I give u sharp push to
one side ; the bustle goes over to the
other and I am all right. Ladies don't sit
flat down , because if they did they
would bo on n high cushion. Some
times the steels get fastened in the
dross and the bustle gets uncomfortable.
Then the lady has to got up and adjust
There was considerable trouble in
getting any direct expression of opin
ion from the loading lady dressmakers.
The subject was ono of too much im
portance for thorn to commit themselves
until they had returned from Paris in
the fall. They had heard of Mrs.
Cleveland's change. In fact , they had
discussed it with some of their custom
ers. Bustles wore growing smaller ,
there wus no doubt of that , very much
smaller ; but then the bustle had boon
in a long timo. It had its friends and
there was no tolling. Ono thing was
certain , in house dresses the bustle had

Flesh in excess is n detriment to the health ,
nnd to cast it off with as little loss of
strength or beauty ns Fannie Davenport or
Lillian Uusscll seem to have sustained Is a
consummation for which many women devoutly
voutly pray. A simple regimen , prescribed
by a doctor , intended to lighten the figure
gradually and without any Interruption to the
daily avocations , is as follows : Keep the
system open with aperients under n physi
cian's ailvico. Take a cold bath in water in
which salt has been dissolved daily , rubbing
vigorously with flesh brushes afterward.
Take calisthcnio exorcise with sufficient
vigor to start profuse perspiration twice
dally , rubbing down ns after the bath.
Eat meat , acid fruits and graham bread.
Avoid sucar as much ns conveniently possi
ble , nnd drink sparingly. Never touch coffee ,
unless you like it barefoot , that is , without
milk or sugar.
This Is a time of the year when recipes for
sunburn meet ono at every turn. Hero is
the best proscription that can bo made :
Burn yourself u httlo moro and the red will
turn to brown , the most , wholesome and be

rule applies to freckles equally well. Freckle
yourself thoroughly that it may bo evident
at a glance that you are taking a course in
nature's university. If the face smarts after
a day out of doors hot water will tiiko out the
sting. Cosmetics are especially injurious because -
cause the smart means irritation , nnd lotions
and balms , oftencr than not , are poisons to
an irritated skin. Complexion troubles nro
doctored by frequent bathing of the person
where any application to the face will only
make them In the end worse. Perfect clean
liness , as n rule , means a good skin. If it
docs not , then the general health is at fault ,
and the onlv remedy lies in giving a better
tone to the system. A clean face is n charm
which many girls do not seem to appreciate.

Boston Transcript : Ono boy was asked
to dolino a common and a proper noun.
Ho wrote :
"William is a proper noun and Billy
is a common noun. "
nAnothor was told to write what ho had
learned in physiology. Ho did , thus :
"Tho body is composed of three parts
the head , the trunk and the abdomen.
The head contains the brains , if you
have any. The trunk contains the heart
nnd lungs. The abdomen contains the
vowels , n , o , i , o , u and sometimes w
and y. "
