THE WAYS OF LITERARY WOMEN , Oiiltln'n Dnlnly GOWMH nnil MIssMur- frcc'H Slialiliy Dcak "Woes of a Qucoti An Anecdote of Jliitilicur. Is'ot long ngo a Now York woman tried nn experiment which will certainly ndorn a tiilo If It docs not point n moral ns well. Iloro Is the tale , says the Now York Times. As the Identity of the woman is to remain 'an unknown quan- tlty throughout its rccltnl , she may bo called Mlsa X. Now , Miss X. IB elnglo , wealthy and lives by hcraolf. And Miss X. does thlnes , lee , occasionally , which inuko her friends say , "How llko El eanor ! " only Eleanor Isn't her name. Thin experiment , by tlio way , was onoof those'things. On ono of the recent autumn days , which had in Its keen air more- than a hint of winter , Miss X. wus hurrying- across the pavement from a Broadway shop to her carriage. At the curb , a hlip of a girl , thinly chul and blue with cold accosted her : " 1'lciifio mom , " she bcfjanln thowhlno of the street beggar , "will .vo buy a poucilV" and she licld up her unservice able wares. Miss X. , who was in some haste , waved her asldo with a not un kind "No child , " anil the next moment , was rolling rnvay. Not , however , before the wlatful , disappointed , and above all , "ubcd-to-it" look on the girl's fuco ilu. prcsbud itself upon her. The next ob ject which mot her eye was the pot Hpanlol nestling in his wadded blanket on the opposite scat , and it scorned to Btriko her biiddonly that there was a painful contrast between the llfo of this littlu pampered animal and the bit of Hhivoring humanity sho. had just en countered , It has been intimated that Mlsa X. is n. lltllo odd , perhaps , so it wasnotsur- wiBliifj that , after thinking of the do < j and the girl and the girl and the dog for a few blocks , she liijjnallud to the coach man and ordered a return to the shop. A characteristic impulbo had seized nor. Bho had decided reasoning in her rapid way that Bon-bon got care which be longed to a higher fjrado ot nnltnal life than that of a Cocker spaniel , and she proposed to put him in his proper sphere and HOC what effect the same attention she had been lavishing upon her do # would accomplish if bestowed upon a human being. She had determined upon the experiment. The girl was still on the sidewalk as the carriage stopped , and , without des cending , Miss X. was able to catch her eye and beckon to her. Wonderingly , the child answered the signal. "What is your namo- little glrlV" be gan Miss X. , abruptly. "Mary Monahan , mom , " was the reply. "And where do you live ? " "Eighteenth street , noarSLxth av'noo , mom. " A few moro questions dieted the facts that she was an "orfun , mom , " living with her grandmother , and had a sister iiovoml years older than hericlf who "tewed hats in a shop , mem. " "Well , Mary , " said Miss X. , when thov had talked thus far , "got in here with mo and w.o'll go to your grand mother. .If she is willing I am going to take you to my house and kco If I can't give you something hotter to do than hulling pencils on the street. "Would you like to come and live with moV" "I dunne , mom , " said Mary , and with this linn-committal reply Miss X. had to bo content. The grandmother proved n blear-eyed old crone , who was easily pursuaded to relinquish the care of her descendant , nnd leaving a message for the sister that Bho would hear from Mary and see her occasionally , Miss X. , with her newly- acquired possession , went away. On reaching homo Mary was given over to the soitnstross , who is also a sort of housekeeper in the establishment , with directions that she bo fitted out with Biiltable clothes , bo .looked after and in- Btructed in light work , and brought to her every morning at 9 o'clock. Ono moro order followed. The spaniel , his basket , and all his belongings wore to bo taken from her dressing room to the utablo al once. Before she dined that evening Miss X. niado a careful estimate of the aggregate tl mo she had boon in the habit of con suming every day in potting and caring for her dog , andarrangodto give itdaily now to her now charge. At the next morning's Interview Alary was not very satisfactory ! She was found to bo very ignorant and very uiionthusiastic. She stolidly accented the favors already be stowed and listened to future promibcs without apparent gratitude or other emotioa. Still Miss X. did not despair. "Appreciation , " she said , "or at least the expression of It Is culture , and poor JIary comes from the gutter. " On the afternoon of the same day , as Hiss X. was dressing for dinner , word came from the basement that Mary was missing. Upon inquiry a few hours before there had boon a ring at the area gale. Mary could see from where she stood who was thorc. Til go , " she eald to the cook ; "it's somebody for cold vitals , " and the cook turned and saw that it was a girl with a basket. That was the last of Mary. Ilor absence was not noticed at first , but when it was she could not be found on the promises. Later , the coachman reported that ho had foen Mary a block from the house without hat or coat , scurrying along with a girl her own size , evidently a beggar child , and , said the follow , k'I wouldn't 1m' knowed Mary , she looked that chirpy. " "Evidently , " commented Miss X. , re lating the experience to a friend , "it was nn experiment with Mary , too , nnd she didn't IInd it a pleasant ono. " "Well , " questioned tho. friend , "what did you do about it ? " "Oh , " replied Miss X. , "I lot her go ; there was nothing else to do , only , " she finished with aquoerlittlo smllo , " 1 had Bon-bon back from the stable. " Almost every woman writer is moro or less "cranky" about the surrounding ! amidst which she prepares her copy. Ouida wants everything cheerful about her and will not wrlto unless the sun is shilling , says the Now York World. She keeps a great bouquotoa her dusk , wears her daintiest gowns and must have her two pot dogs at her foot. Miss Murfrco ( Charles Egbert Crad- doekjhas a shabby old desk , which Is the joy of her heart. She gets it in the cen ter of a largo , airy room , dons a plain , comfortable dress and becomes lost tc lifo and friends in her work. She writes very rapidly and keeps her papers in perfect order. Elizabeth Stuart Pholps' hobby la a cherished gold no a which she has use < ] for years. It ulll bo a valuable souvonh some day , but at present it never loaves her desk. She writes at n table well covered with books and panors. Mary E.

Newspaper women 'wrlto anywhere nnd every where on trains , "ton steam boats , in railway stations. And It is no unusual thing to sco one of them prop a hoot against the wall and scribble away or dear llfo. The qucon of Roinnania has had two serious troubles which proved nadly on icr oxoltiiblo , emotional nature , says Modern Society. Her only daughter lied and her ton and heir never arrived , ting Charles , her husband , has adopted i grown up nephew to Illl tlio state va cancy , but everybody knows this IB not IIP Biuno thlnrf to Iho poor qucon con sort , whose position is never the same 18 when her own child comes next in succession.

Tlio Austrian empress Is in a still worseplight. . Her only f > on met with a disgraceful end and barely received 'Jhristinn burial. Save for a legacy of Mischief and heartburnings ho is us .hough ho hud never been , Tlio queen of the Uelginns lost her only son some years ngo. A grand review of Qucon Victoria's descendants would very likely jlvo Cannon Sylvia a very lonesome coling , but Hho should rollout that forty children and grand children not only como expensive but can toldoni bo man- igcd as doves in a cage when once sons- in-law and daughters-in-law nnd junior partners swell the list. Thousands of singers have no doubt .rendered . why the title pngo of "Mar- .juorlto" bora no dedication like all the ither famous works written by Mils au thor , says the New York World. The reason for this omission was that Mr. White had in his mind nn ideal picture of a woman corresponding in all fomi- iiino grace with his musical picture of the ideal Marguerite. The composer determined that when ho mot u living woman who should nppronch his concep tion , ho would dedicate his song to her. During his hojourn in the south , and while stopping- Atlanta , Ga. , ho caught on the hotel plaz/n , while hur rying to catcli a train , a Heeling glimpse of a face and figure which were almost Lho exact counterpart of his dreams. The vision remained with him , and wherever ho went Mr. "White was un- Wo to shako off his sentimental fancy. Several months later , while in Cleveland - land , lie again caught a glhnp&o in the street of the ideal of his dream * . Tno young lady is the daughter of Brevet Colonel Albert Bnrnltz of the Sev enth cavalry , United States army , who is now living in retirement in this city , and who fought with distinction under General Ouster. Miss Bertha Koso Barnilz is a blonde , above the medium height , with hair which , unloosed , touches the ground. Her form is almost faultless. In addi tion to her physical gifts she has a re markable talent for sculpture and paint ing. She was born in Lcavonworth , Kan. Her mother , who is a woman of moro than ordinary accomplishments and striking beauty , is a warm friend of the poet Whittier , to whom she has paid frequent visits of late. Her father , Colonel Barnitx , is a gentleman of pro nounced literary gifts. Hereafter the titlo-pago of the song Marguerite" contain the dedica tion to MrWhite's newly found ideal , with a.portrait. A young Frenchwoman , who is now married , tells a story of how her engage ment was nearly broken off through her acquaintance with Mile. Bonhourwhont the time was busy on a picture in 1'aris , working in the house of the young Frenchwoman's cousin. Ono afternoon the painting did not go well , and Mile. Bonhour went to the Jurdin des pi antes for inspiration , tak ing the happy girl as a companion. Sitting on a bench in a shaded walk , they saw in the distance the girl's be trothed , who , instead of joining them , looked a moment , then Hung away in passion , and for the space of a week waa not hoard from. Then finally ho paid a sulky visit , demanding1 an explanation of her apparently intimate relations with another man. "A. man ? " said the laughing girl , now comprehending the desertion ; "shall I call the gontlenuftiV" "What , in your own house ? " said the mystified caller. A. minute later Mile. Bonhour stood In the doorway listening smilingly to the ceremony of presentation. "Ah , " said the only half-pacified lover , "then monsieur " "Monsieur , " interrupted the trium phant girl , "is Mademoiselle , and if you like you niny como into the studio and BOO her latest picture. " Is the pianoforte wanning in popu larity and giving place to the violin ? Ono would not think so to see the activity among the dealers in these in struments on Tremont street , says the Boston Advertiser. And yet it would appear that the violin , especially as an instrument for young girls , is rapidly in creasing in popularity. The classes in the violin at the music schools are grow ing larger , and a "popular" concert to day can hardly bo regarded ns popular unless a young Italy violinist is included among the "talent. " In England it is said to have fairly taken Its place as nn instrument for girls. After all the pianoforte is ro'illy a very modern In strument when compared with the violin. It is only a harn faet in a box and twanged with leather-covered hammers. It is ically a mechanical sort of an niTnlr , while the violin has never within the memory of living * man or woman boon improved nnd never will bo. Who cares for nn old piano or how much it is worth. But a. violinl What divine melody will pour forth under skillful fingers from an old Stradivarius of Amnti ? The wizard of Cremona possessed a secret which no imitator , however keen , has ever been able to fathom. Princes and dukes , men of high renown and modern money kings luvvo scrambled for the possession of the fowraro products of his cunning. Stradivarius died moro than a hundred and fifty years ago , but the few violins and 'cellos which still exist to enchant the ear of the world nro worth their weight in gold. The master of the pianoforte is a skillful mechanician , with agile , supple lingers and uti ncuto musical instinct. The master or mistress of the violin is itnbuod with dlvino fire , the gift of the gods. The slender waist has blddon us nUiou. Nineteenth century beauty of form con sists not of thinness , orovenslondornoss , or what Is usuallv termed gentility of figure , nays the Now York Star. Prior's "small by degrees and beautifully less' ' nnd the late duchess of Devonshire's waist of an orange and a half nro not the ideal figures of today. The Dolsarto maiden , who supports this opinion , will refer you to the Modlcian Venus , the most celebrated of the Grecian statues. A single glunco will convince you of the fallacy of these Ideas of beauty which have been formed by the advocates and admirers of small waists and slender fig ures. The body and lluibs of that paragon of beauty are round nnd full. Examine still further and suppose for n moment that the Mcdlclnn Venus were to bo placed In the hands of one of our flrat rate dressmakers to bo Invested with the usual quantity of clothing now worn , all fitted perfectly to the shape. The result would satisfy us that modern forms pro duced by tight lacing nro destructive" to health as well as to beauty , and boar no analogy to that lovely , graceful and ex quisitely beautiful model of antiquity. Whatever is mean or scanty in tiaturo or in art can novcr bo beautiful. Four hundred nnd sixty-seven girls lunched In n cafe the other day , and by the courtesy of the head waiter the writer wns permitted to play sentinel at the kitchen door , saya the Now York Sun. Only thirteen orders contained meat two of steak , three lamb chops , five ham and three mutton stow. Twonty-soven bowls of BOUO , chowder and broth were borvcd ; BIX damsels called for llsh ; ono hundred and four had an oyster stow and sixty -BO von" took lobster or chicken salad. An even two hundred made a meal on ice cream and cake , with a glass of ice water. Forty-five had hot apple dumpling : three hundred cuts of pie were consumed , with ono hundred and two clinrlotio russo , seventy chocolate oclalrs , thirty-nine creampuffs nnd ono square yard of Washington pie cut Into sections of three inches each. One hun dred and seventeen drank tea , 'twenty called for colTce , twcnty-thrco for pop , ale and beer , two had claret , sovoateen soda water , and the rest , ono hundred and bixly-sovon in all , tilled themselves with ice water. It is to this kind of diet that so many of our sallow-faced , blood less , Ihshlcbs , shapeless women and children can be traced. Mrs. Kondal's complexion Is ono of tlio things about which the world Is thor oughly justified in talking , says nn ex change. It Is n question whether many women of her years in the world are so fortunately endowed by .nature. She has not much color , but the texture of her skin is as smooth and satiny ns that of the traditional country milkmaid. The ingodlents which go to make up the pro scription upon which Mrs. Kcnaul de pends consist of ton hours' sloop out of the twenty-four , a walk of at least four miles in the air every day , brown bro.id , no coffee , no sweets , vigorous rubbing in cold water , and a few of the simplest and most harmless of toilet articles. Unlike most women , she believes principally in exercise , and the oll'ect which she ex hibits ought to bring con verts to.her sys tem of living. . Dr. Birney cures catarrh , Bee bldg.

A North Dukotn niHhop'ri Novel IMun of There has just , been completed at the works of the Pullman palace car com pany a novel creation , the only church on wheels in the world , says a Chicago dispatch. It is constructed according to the idea of the Kt. Rov. William D.

In appearance tlio exterior of the church dilTerH but little from the ordi nary Pullman , except that from each side , midway the two extremes , is a slight projection , gothle in form , which rises to the height of what is known as the second deck. This , Bishop Walker saysj is for giving the car moro the ap pearance of a church. The car is sixty feet lontr and ton feet wide. Its interior is finished in oak after the gothic stylo. At one end is a oo m devoted to the bishop's use. The main body of tlio car church contains a chancel , altar , lectern , baptismal font , a bishop's chair and a cabinet organ. There are scats for about boventy pee ple."I "I first conceived the idea , " said Bishop Walker , "about six years ago when I began my labors in the diocese of North Dakota. I made it public a little over a year ago , andthu idea was FO favorably- received , that it was de termined to make practical use of it. There are a number of little town's along the various railroads of from ICO to ICO inhabitants , the residents of which nro now practically barred from church privileges. It is for thcfeo people that the "Church on Wheels" has been con structed. "It Is not possible to assign a mission ary or rector to these towns. They are too small to support ono. It Is my pur pose to notify the people In such places ten days or so In advance that lam com ing , and In that way I shall make the circuit. The car will bo attached to freight trains and switched olT at such stations as I may designate , wuich are from seven to ton miles apart. " "Is the car-church intended for Epis copalians ulonoY" ' "No , indeed. It is for nil who care to attend roligiom sot-vices. My cathedral cur , as I call it , is by no means denomi national. Much , in fact nearly all , of the furnishings of the car are gifts. The lectern nnd bible are both donated as memorials , the font is the gift of a New York Sunday school , and the other things cnmo from dllToront sources. The car will bo shown to a few Chicnjio people - plo Tuesday , and on Wednesday it and myself will begin the journey to our mu tual field of labor.

Dr. Birnoy cures catarrh , Boo bldg. Chestnuts for .Markets. Samples of American chestnuts , su perior to these of foreign growth both In size and flavor , have recently boon ro- colved at the department of agriculture , affording a striking illustration of the results of culture and selection. By these means It is believed that the ma turity of the chestnut likewise may bo materially hastened. Reports received from various sections of the country milieu to that the nut may bo bebt prepared for market by being im mersed in boiling water for about ton minutes ns soon ns gathered. Wormy nuts will lloat on the biirfaco and may bo removed ; nil otrgs and lavto of Insects will bo destroyed ; and the condition of the meat of the nut will bo bo changed that it will not become flnty by further curing for winter use , and still lie in no wise a "boiled chestnut. " The nuts may bo dried in the sun or in dry houses after being placed in sacks in such .quantities as to admit of their being spread to the thick ness of about two inches , the sacks being frequently turned and shaken. Dried by this method they remain qulto tender , rotaln the qualities for a long time thai make them desirable in the fall , and may bo safely stored : but , ofcourso , wll : not germinate.

To this question every ono hns n differ ent answer , nnd queer nnd extraordinary ndood are some of tlio means adopted iu ho life-long chase after the root of ali evil. evil.In In Paris , where tho" supply of human bolnga far exceeds the supply of money , Jioro exist and flourish some of the queerest and most extraordinary money- ettlnp professions in the world , says the San Francisco Examiner. Who , for nstanco , would Imagine that there is at Paris a regular guild of trade-union nirours des reufs , angllco , "examiners of eggs , " who earn their livelihood by giv- ng opinions in the various markets of , ho metropolis ns to whether the eggs offered for unlo are either good or bad , xnd although they are necessarily lim ited to a more outward inspection of the egg they never make an error or mis take a stale for n fresh one. Another odd calling that affords em ployment and daily bread to a number of steady men is that of professional awak- oner. The latter form a trade union , are duly licensed and officially recognized by the police , anil perform the duties of an ambulant alarm clock. The awakener - oner starts out at about 3 o'clock in the morning on Ms regular round , provided with a notebook on which are inscribed the names of his customers and the hours tit which , they desire to bo avouacd from their slumbers. His clients usually belong - long to the working classes , and it is his special duty to make them got up , which ho does by n shrill and strident whistle in front of each of their houses. Ho does not pass on until ho becomes con vinced by a responsive whistle that ho has accomplished his task , for which ho receives it remuneration of 1 cent a head per day. There is also tha truild of toad mer chants men who make it their duty to collect and breed toads for the purpose of selling' thorn to iho various market gardeners and llorjbts , who constitute a very considerable , portion of the su burban populatinnoi Paris. Toads find a ready and remunerative sale among the latter who employ their services for the purpose of destroying and extermi nating snails , slugs nnd other kinds of obnoxious vdrmfn. Quito a largo number of men and women walk the streets by day nnd by night hunting -for old boot and shoo soles , from which they extract the nails. These after having their heads polished , are sold to the makers of small joy ani- m.ila , who use them for the eyes of the latter. Others -turn up their .noses at old boots and shoes and devote them selves exclusively to collecting old crusts of broad , too stale and filthy to have tamptjJ oven the moat ravenous dog , but which are greatly relished by the rabbits that are raided in enormous numbers in the suburbs. In the Ghnuseo d'Antin , there is a regular office which furnishes profes sional diners , out at a fixed tariff rate. It is to the managers thereof that super stitious persons apply when at the mo ment before dinner they rcq uiro the presence of a fourteenth guest. Titled personages covered with decorations can likewise- hired there to put in an appearance at the dinners or halls of wealthy parvenus. A man has just died hero who managed - , aged to am1" " ? a considerable fortune by picking u ci r and cigarette stumps in the street , and in the lloors of restau rants and v fo . A most disreputable looking individual was this old man , who , dressed in rags , was wont to wander by day and night along the thoroughfares of the great metropo lis for the purpose of collecting the hnlf- chewed , half-smoked' butts of cigars. No ono would ever have bcliovod it pos sible for this wretched specimen of hu manity to leave a fortune of 300,000 francs to his heirs. And yet this is the case. It appears that ho had discover ed the means of earning largo profits by reducing his cigar btumps and cigarettes - ottos to ashes which ho thereupon sold at the rate of # o a pound to a well known chemist. The latter , after sub jecting the ashes to a treatment by which they were highly perfumedfound ready and exclusive sale for them as tooth powder. Probably the most perilous of nil these . , ueor professions is that of the "gold- hunters" ana of the "collectors of grouse. " Both-of these are carried on either at the mouth of the sewers or in- sldo of them. Tire grease collectors af fect the sewers in the neighborhood of the slaughterhouses and hospitals , where they gather up all Iho animal and hu man wreckage , if ono may bo permitted to use the expression , and turn them ever to the grease-refiners and mer chants. The "gold-scokord" pursue their calling among the same unsavory surrounding ? , and hunt for gold and sil ver jowelrv and coins which have found their way into the powers. In the densely inhabited district of La Nilletto the sewers are not moro than from four to five fqot high and about a yard across , while the heat and perfume of the atmospho'-ordofy description.
