It has already been discovered thal
the pipings and applique designs ar.
ranged on fancy capes and jackets cut
and wear badly, and give the garment
a worn appearance before its time. This
applies not- alone to the medium, but
the higher-priced wraps so decorated.
Put where a roll of silk braid outline!

to be averted.
Tentative efforts are again being
made In favor of somewhat shortei
skirts, but no one enn make an abso-
lute prophecy concerning them. A»
the matter stands at present In th«
hands of fashion designers and special-
ists, the traveling and walking cos-
tumes have the skirt at the back so
well mounted and arranged over a close
foundation skirt as to give the effect of
a slightly trained model without it*
former inconvenience. This, however,
Is exceptional, and the majority of new
tailor styles, or those in present use,
have a skirt which continues to sweep
the ground at the back.
Apple green, a rich shade of reddish
pluin color, rose color, and jet black vel-
vets are much en evidence as acces-
sories on evening toilets of cream oi
ivory-white satin, crepe tie chine, or net
over taffeta silk. The velvet decora-
tions are almost covered with cut-work
in satin or point applique lace.
Fashionable fur trimmings are still
of sable, inink, marten, or other tails,
hanging like a deep fringe from yokes,
square sailor-shaped collars, and
pelerine points or stole-shaped fronts
of velvet, trimmed with chenille and
fur cn applique. Other short-fleeced
furs are arranged in scroll-like curve*,
on black and colored costumes of cloth
and velvet. Short quaint jackets of
these furs are brought out in many oi
the shapes popular in velvet or henry

Skilled modistes put to various ef-
fective uses the innumerable fancy de-
vices so artistically produced in both
silk and mohair braids, cut cloth, velvet
and chenille designs en applique and
satin arabesques, outlined in fine Eilk

There ore new graceful models in
both five and seven-gored skirts, the
backs cut to conform to the latest man-
ner of adjusting a certain amount of
fullness at the back in one very deep
box-plait, in two narrower cnes, or Vk

shirrings very closely massed.
A new English walking jacket is cut
with very rounding skirt-fronts and
fastens diagonally across the chest.
Beneath this is a close-fitting waist-
coat of chamois-colored cloth almost
covered with braiding, and fastened
with large rococo buttons. Another
style shows the right front cut wide
enough to lap in double-breasted fash-
ion from the throat to the length of
above five inches over the chest. Be-
lo»v this each side is very much cut
away, leaving a broad open space that
is filled in with a cloth vest. The clos-

(skal) W. II. H. Pittman,
As the dark (lays approach and th*
hours of sunshine grow shorter and
fewer, it is well to repeat the oft-
uttered warning against excluding
sun from our living rooms. The pow-
er of the sun ns a destroyer of germs
depends largely on the amount of
fresh air admitted with it; and people
are too much inclined to surround
themselves with stuffiness in cold
weather. Sunlight and fresh air conv-
bined will enable one to bid defiance
to disease and doctors.
A well-known physician advises thin
women to eat- before going to bed,
as there must be continuous nourish-
ment to prevent the waste of tissue.
A normal quantity of light, easily
digested food taken before retiring
will also prevent or cure insomnia.
A tactful nurse will never speak Iw
loud tones, nor yet in --.hispers, in the
presence of the patient. She will not
discuss the disease, the medicine nor
the food, nor tell stories or anecdotes
that will excite the one under her
oharge. Especially will she exclude
the knowledge of all family troubles,
anxieties or vexations from the ear*
already too keenly alert, the nerves
Trained nurses, and other women
who are forced to observe long hours
•f work, with consequent irregularity
of meals, find much benefit from car-
rying small tablets of chocolate in
the pocket, and letting them dissolve
slowly in the mouth. It is matter of
history tttel Napoleon's soldligsJs|B>f
Here is a variation of the old story oi
the true lovers and the ciuel parent
A prepossessing young woman, living
in the vicinity of Seventh and Taskei
streets, has a “steady,” and also a fa-
ther. The latter does not approve ol
the former, and is at no pains to dis-
guise his sentiments in the matter
When expostulated with for receiving
the visits of the young man the heroin*
protested that he came merely as a
casual caller. But the old man wassus,
plcious, and lie summoned to his aid
an electrical worker. At either end ol
the parlor sofa, underneath the cush-
ion, contact plates were fitted in such
a way that the weight of u person ovei
each one of the pairs of plates woulc
close an electric circuit, ringing
small gong in another part of the
dwelling. The peculiarity of the ar
rangement was that both pairs ol
plates had to be brought into contact
In order to complete the circuit, and
this couiJ be effected only by two per-
sons occupying the sofa.
When the objectionable Romeo made
his next visit everything was serene
until about 10:45, when the old iolki
supposedly had retired. Then the tell-
tale electric buzzer went off, and th*
old gentleman with startling alacrity
presented himself at the parlor door,
What he saw shocked his old-fashioned
notions of propriety, for in his youth
young people were not permitted to sit
without a large and yawning space be-
tween them, and this particular pair ol
young people sat very close together,
Indeed. The employment of modern
science In this instauce to dam up th«
course of true love was a signal suc-
cess. The poor girl, according to the
neighbors, is training on plain baker's
rolls and ice water, while the luckles*
lover declares that “the old man
CANNING SALMON IN aLAltLA.
There Hn* Ileen a Larne Development
of Our Flshlnu Interest* There
The value of the fisheries of the Unit-
ed States has become far greater than
that of any other nation, and no feature
of our fisheries has had a more rapid
growth than salmon canning on the Pa-
cific coast. Salmon canning is by far
the largest branch of the Pacific coast
fisheries, and the market value of the
canned salmon put up on the Pacific
coast every year is about twice thato.
the entire annual product of the lake
fisheries. We have hardly realized yet
how much the waters of the Alaskan
coast are contributing to our wealth.
In 20 years nearly TOli.uCO.CCO pounds of
fresh salmon have been taken in Alaska,
and the value of the canned and salted
product hus been nearly $33,000,000.
Over a third of all the sulinon canned
and packed on the Pacific coast now
comes from Alas’ftt, and the industry is
growing every yt ar. It is spread along
the coast from th ? neighborhood of Sit-
ka, in southeast Alaska, to Kadiak is-
land, near the Alaskan peninsula, and
then further north into the waters of
Behring sea, and that region now con-
tributes about :t tn'h ot the entire
catch. Kadiak and U.-gnik contribute
about ilnce-scveutiis of it, southeast
ern Alaska a quarter and Cook Inlet,
Prince William sound and the Copper
river make up the balance. Along these
hundreds of miles of coasts there are ..0
canneries and more than half of them
are owned by one packing association.
Capt. Glenn, of the army, who has
just been describing his Alaskan ex-
plorations of last year in print, tells of
the littie cannery at Orca, not far from
the mouth of the ( upper river, which
was so little known until recently that
it could not be accurately placed on the
maps. This cannery has a capacity of
50,000 cases per annum and employs
from 123 to 130 nun. of whom 00 aro
Chinese. The Chinese do till the work
of the cannery, making, packing and
labelling the cans and boxing them
for shipment. The remainder of the
force are fishermen and boatmen, and
mostof the fish arc caugbtatthemouth
of the Copper river. One day last year
a vessel cl '.he company came into Orca
having cn board 23,000 fish, represent-
ing a single day’s catch at the moutl.
of the Copper river. This was by no
means tin ordinary catch, but larger
catches had been made, and it was
enough to 1‘ eep the cannery running
continuously for three days. Here, the
captain says, he ate “from a can that
had just been packed, some of the fam-
ous king salmon, which is Indeed the
king salmon, not oniy on account of Ms
size and beauty, but also from Its del-
In this region, too, is the famous can-
dlefisli, which in the summer month!
puts in an appearance in immense
numbers. Crpt. 'lenu says their
schools are so thick that with every
outgoing tide they tire found cast up
on the beach, unable to get back into
the water. It is easy to gather up u
bucketful of them in five minutes, se-
lecting only those that are alive. The
squaws catch great quantities by sim-
ply dipping a basket into the water.
They are much like the ordinary smelt
In texture and flavor, though much oib
ier and two or three t-ime3 as large. It
is/said the fish is culled candlefish be-
cause when it is dried it will light and
burn like nil ordinary candle.
In Lieut, Learnnrd’s report, also just
printed, he says that along the coast In
Prince William sound, and also in Cook
inlet, there are plenty of fish, the prin-
cipal varieties being '-off, halibut, floun-
ders, candleflshandsalmon. Thousand*
of cases of salmon are packed and
shipped away, while many thousands of
salmon are siinpiy thrown away be-
cause they ure not of the choicest va-
rieties. By this wasieful policy several
other species are being rapidly de-
stioyed. Every fr<‘sh water stream
contains plenty of salmon after they
start to run, tut the tisit endeavor to get
to the head of the stream before spawn-
ing.—N. Y. Sun.

Women of (Tic* Transvaal. •
The average Boer is big. brawny and
strong, ruddy eheol.id and wholesome,
yet never handsome. The women, as a
rule, do not approach the fresh and
simple beauty seen in. the north of
Europe. Here and there throughout
the Transvaal you will find a handsome
Dutch girl, but not often. Their dress,
usually of some cheap print, and tha
hideous poke bonnet, so universal, do
not add to their attractions. They are
curiously afraid of exposing their com-
plexions to the sun, and are often pal*
and pasty in appeurance. It is a curi-
ous thing to see how carefully a Boer
woman will shade her face, and even
keep her hands beneath her apron,
when in the sun. Yet, on the whole,
the women of the Transvaal >are not
unattractive—when you get used te
them.—N. Y. Herald.

THE HIGHEST TROLLEY.
Iwitaerland Maintain*] Cor Line* U*
the Cloud*, 5,350 Feet Above
' The highest electric railway that
has ever been built now runs up 2,100
feet above Davos, which is itself 5,350
feet above the level of the sea. The
jpew line is one of tbe first in Switz-
erland to be worked by electricity.
,The winter season was marked by the
opening of the funicular railway up
the Schatzalp. The first car to start
upward was greeted by thousands,
who turned out to sec it.
• At the top of the Schatzalp, where
the railway ends, a great sanitarium
of wondrous sizo is in course of erec-
tion and will be opened to the pub-
lic next year. There can be no doubt
that other institutions will speedily
spring up on the Schatzalp. The
prospect from, the ether station is ex-
tremely grand. At the foot of the
mountain lies the valley of Dnvos, with
Its long trail of houses, while all
around rise gigantic snow-tipped
mountains, covered with forests of fir.
At night the ascent is well worth
making, on account of the fairylike
appearance of tho town in the valley,
lit up with hundred^ of electric lights,
which look wonderfully beautiful In
the thin Alpine air against the black
background of the mountains.
