THE MAJOR'S EXPERIENCE.
From the Detroit Free Press.
One of the stanchest supporters of the
deep water way from the Great La Lett to the
ocean is Major A. C. Bishop, of 715 Third
Ave., Detroit, a civil engineer of wide expe
rience and considerable prominence in his
Srofession. He was assistant engineer on the
[udeon River Railroad in 1850 and has
since conducted large engineering opera
tions. He lias been located in Detroit, since
1815, and has a large acquaintance among the
business men and citizens of this city.
Two years ago, for the first time, Major
Bishop was in the hospital. For two months
he had the best of medical attendance, but
when he was discharged he was not like the
Major Hishop of old. When asked regard
ing his health, he said: "When I haa my
iast spell of sickness and came out of the
lospital I was a sorry sight, I could not gain
my strength, and could not walk over a block
for several weeks.

A Nevr York Central Innovation.
George H. Daniels, of the New York Cen
tral & Hudson River Railroad, has made
an announcement which is of a rather start
ling nature, but it is one which ought to
please the patrons of that great system, and
particularly those who travel on mileage
books, 'ltn circular reads as follows:
Mileage books, good for 500 miles and
1,000 miles travel, are now on sale at ail
•tations ua the New York Central (divisions
arid branches) at the rate of $lO and S2O
These tickets are good until used, and are
available for passage on the main line of the
New York Central, and all of its branches
and divisions, including the Harlem, Put
nam, Rome, Watertown & Ogdensburg,
Carthage & Adirondack, Geneva & Lyons
and the Adirondack (Utica to Montreal) di
Mileage books will be issued in the name
of the head of a family or firm, and will be
available tor the use of any member of such
family or for any traveler for a firm, pro
vided the name of such member or traveler
is written in the book by the agent selling
jt, in the place designated. They will be
honored for transportation by the conduct
ors of all trains, including limited trains, but
only to the end of the run of each conductor.
If the holder of such ticket desires to ridc
bevond the run of a conductor, or on a night
train, or to a point on a branch line, he
should present his mileage ticket to the
ticket agent, who will detach the proper
mileage and issue a mileage exchange ticket,
on which baggage will be checked to any stn
tion on the New York Central or any of it
branch lines, thus avoiding the necessity of
being disturbed after retiring, or of recheck
ing baggage —From the Pittsbuigh Post

A GRACEFUL WALK.
It la a Ileanty Within Itarlf, and
Every Girl Should Seek to
To be thoroughly graceful long steps
and quick short steps should be equally
avoided, remarks a French woman. A
stiff walk is also very ungraceful, and
that is the great fault of English girls.
They walk too stifly and take too long
Spanish women have a very pretty
walk, naturally, as also have Italian
country girls and all accustomed to
carry weights on their heads.
To exercise walking a weight on the
head is a very good lesson. You must
not. be content, however, to walk
straight before you without letting the
weight fall from your head. You must
turn backward and forward, and from
side to side, as Italian country girls
do when they carry their water jars
from the well and can turn in all di
rections without a drop of water be
ing spilled from the jar on their head.
More marriages are made up at the
well in Italy than in any other public
place. Young rustic fellows stand by
the well to watch the girls fill their
Chrysanthemum Yellow and
Watermelon Pink Cape.
Evening wraps, as a general rule, are so
expensive that the woman with only a little
to spend and a great deal to buy feels that
she is unable to indulge in such a luxury;
but thanks to the beautiful new flannel that
is now being imported every person can have
something daiuty for evening without a
The new flannel comes in all the leading
colors and you can get it both striped and
figured. Five yards will make a cape and
two yards of silk will make the frills. The
Wrap in this case is of chrysanthemum white
flannel with watermelon pink stripes run
ning through it and big yellow chrysan-
jars and carry them away on their
beads with a grace given only to them;
and the most graceful among them has
the most admirers from whom to choose
The French are also very graceful
Study your walks, girls. Take danc
ing lessons to begin with and then re
peat your lessons before your long
toilet glass. A pretty walk is a beauty
in itself, and everyone who will can
acquire this beauty. Do it, then, at
once—now —without losing another
day.—N. Y. Herald.

To clean white ostrich feathers cut
»>onie pure white soap in small pieces
and pour boiling water on them and
add u little mite of soda. When the
soap is dissolved and the water cool

them through the hand. Do this sev

then make a clean lather and repeat
the operation. Afterward rinse the
feathers in cold water, slightly blued.
Pat the feathers between the hands

QUEEN'S LOYAL LOVE.
Amrllr of PortutfHl Studied Medlcln*
fur thf I'urpoNe of Doctoring
Queen Amelie of Portugal is an ad
vanced woman, though she is queen of
one of the least progressive nations in
Europe, and i daughter of the con
servative house of Bourbon. When this
gay and pretty princess, who had
QUEEN AMALIE OF PORTUGAL*
been brought up in England, married
blonde and good-natured King Carlos
I.of Portugal, she did what few royal
ladies do. she fell in love with her hus
band. No humble Darby and Joan
ever lived in more peaceful conjugal
content than these two young royal
ties. Not only does Queen Amelie
think her husband the best of men,
themums scattered over it. The collar it
very high and is made so that it can b«
turned down when the wrap is thrown open.
Three yellow China silk frills are sewed
around the cape about a foot apart, and tha
whole wrap is lined with pink nearsilk.
The hat worn with this cape is of soft
white felt trimmed only with two long
ostrich plumes and ,i rosette of pink ribbon
and a yellow chrysanthemum under each
side of the brim. As the long plumes ara
very expensive it is a very good idea and a
great saving of money to purchase two cheap
ours and sew them together so that they
make one long, full feather.
but she lias ever been most proud of
her blonde, but rath-er chubby beauty,
and great has been her grief over bis
yearly increase in weight. Some time
ago King Carlos' figure went the way
common to most unfortunately stout
men, and though he lias borne the loss
with princely good nature, to Queen
Amelie it was a deep source of dis
tress. After traveling about with him
to many spas and cures for obesity and
seeing no cutting down of the royal
waist measure, this plucky woman set
to work to achieve a sufficient knpwl
edge of medicine to enable her to con
quer her husband's one weakness.
For five years the qii'en has studied
medicine under the ablest physicians
in Portugal, and at length took her
degree of M. t). after passing the most
rigorous examinations. Since her
debut as a full-fledged doctor of medi
cine, she has actually been able to do
more for her husband's health than
any of the great specialists to whom
he resorted. But this good' lady does
not apply her scientific knowledge to
selfish purposes alone. She has estab
lished in Lisbon a free clinic, where
the poor children of the city ree« ive
treatment, often at the queen's own
hands, and thus, by her noble sympa
thy and tender regard for the people,
she has gained a unique position tie a
sort of nurse, mother and friend, a»
well as a sovereiga.

Never before in history was there a ca*e
where a defeated and captive enemy re
ceived such generous treatment as we gavd
the Spaniards. Other nations are aston
ished. Equally astonishing are the cures
brought about by Ilostetter's Stomach Bit
ters. Never before in history has theiebeen
so successful a medicine for the weak, debili
tated and nervous, for stomach and liver dis
orders like dyspepsia, indigestion, biliousness
and constipation. All nations have benefit
ed by it, and all praise it.
That the Spanish character has deterio
rated greatly since Isabella's reign is again
shown by the fact that, while poor Colum
bus can't lie still, his descendants can. —
