road, of wbiob. Clinton Borer is the
president, promises to be an interesting
one, and already, aayi the Philadelphia
Record, criminations and re-orinilua-tlone
are flying thick and fait between
the rlral oorporationa. The Bine Moun
tain railroad if tha ootfirowth of an
organization effected by James Marib,
a Lebanon con tree tor, who bad a lien
against the old Sonth Monntain for
construction work done and who pur
chased the rirbU and franohisas of that
road at sheriff' sale some months ago.
To aomply with the laws of the com
monwealth and maintain the validity
of bis purobase, it was necessary to ef
fect an organization within thirty
days, and the Blue Mountain company
was the outgrowth. It was not very
long before the organizers of the
Blue Mountain railroad awoke
te the fact that though tbey
bad purchased the rights and fran
chises of the South Mountain road they
possessed nothing but tbe bear fran
chise, the rights of way having revert
d to the original owners of tbe land.
Upon discovering this fact tbey at once
set about to secure the necessary
rights of way, and V. C. Mayne, tha
counsel for the company, and one ot
tbe prime movers in the project is au
tnority for the statement that fully
two-thirds of these have been secured.
Mr. Mayne further states that thr
Pennsylvania Midland, whioh is capi
talized at $3,000,000, undolalms to have
secured by deed the entire right of way
ot the old South Mountain road, pos
sesses nothing but a franchise, wuioi.
represents a cash outlay so far of about
$4,000, made tip mainly of counsel fees,
and the purchase at sheriff's sale ot
Mr. Marsh's interest as an incorporator
in the Blue Mountalu railroad. Tbe
Blue Mountain company has for som
weeks been engaxed in a careful resar
vey of tbe old South Monntain route,
and the action of ; the Pennsylvania
Midland directors in approving the
hasty survey and ordering it to be file
at Harriaburg is taken as an intention
on their part to forestall their rivals lu
the mutter of location.
A belief, once prevailed,, says tin
Stockholder, that the Pennsylvania,
through its refusal to ob-operate with
other companies, would eventually l
the means of disrupting the combina
tion. This belief wns intensified when
the returns of 1603 were in, sbowinu
' that tbe company increased its tonnage
during that year 276,021 tons, or 3 per
cent, nver 1802, following tbe increase
in 1808 over 1S01 of 5 p)r cent. The
deureHse to be noted in its output thi
year, therefore, is surprising, and is
construed to indicate taut it has ni
most reached (at any rate, temporarily)
ine maximum producing capacity.
Tbe anthracite coal regions are nlso
becoming girdled with electric rail
roads, which connect town after town
with their neighbors on both sides. Iu
the main tbe securities of these com
panies are paying investments, and
their patronage increase from woek to
week. The closeness with which the
steam railway companies watch their
movements is the strongest evidence
' that could be found of the probable
future of the electrio lines. Vhntevet
may once have been thought of them,
it is now evident that tbey have come
to stay, and a general willingness tc
admit the fact has been readied by
their competing lines. But while thic
Is true, and while it is also a fact that
their completion does not swell the re
ceipts of tue steam roads, their exten
sion is t) be complacently regardoj by
the public. It gives the lutter the
choice of traveling by different lines ut
lower rate, and does not force the oil
companies into receivers' bands. It is
Uie knowlsge of these facts which iin
pels the people to urge on the work of
electrio extension. rnllaaelpina ln

Piqoout Aeeessorles Which Conceal Do-

A certain m.irmiisn u-hn la nnf. Wn
turning an honost penny, or rather sou,
Dy giving gooa counsel to ner country
women on various nubjects connected with
the tollot has decided opinions as to tho
veil, which may Interest American as
well as Parisian women. After descant
ing on its rlBO, dovclopmont and uses in
tho past sho goes on to speak of it in its
modorn capacity as piquant nccossorj
wnioii conceals lm)prrectloiis and uisnlnyj
beuuty." Her advlco Is clinmcterizod by
good tasto nnd is worth rcuiemberlng:
"Tho veil par excellence is tho wlilto
0110, with black dots. It gives a look of
freshness to tho complexion nnd mlds to
tho effect of the cyos. Tho nil white veil is
only sultnblo for a brunette with a clear
skin. A plain black veil is not becoming
to any ono, but a block ono, with block
dots, is becoming to everybody. Never
weur a red, violet or blue veil, as It gives
ft sickly and vmnaturul tint to tho most
beautiful complexion in tho world."
'I ho pretty alpino nnd crush crowned
straw huts with wldo curled brims nro
coming into groat popularity. They oro a
relief from tho ubiquitous rigidity of tho
sollor hut and thereby fill a long felt
wont. Tho sailor hat is really only sult
nblo for children nnd young girls, hut it
has boon tho only sort of outing headwear,
short of caps, provided for womuu for
years post. Thcso new shapes oro woro
illgnlllod ond more generally becoming,
oiul It Is to bo hoped that they havo como
to stay. Thoy may bo trimmed with tho
sovero band nnd dunlop bow or mny be
softened In effect by tho addition of a
cliou of ribbon, a bunch of violets or a
tuft of black or whlto cock's feathers.
An Illustration is given of a hut having
a berretta crown of green straw and a brim
of plaited black loco. It is trimmed with
blnek gauzo ribbon having nioiro stripes,
which surrounds tho crown nnd forms a
knot at tbo left sido of tho front, hold in
place by a jet ornament.
They Are All Made Full and Are Lavishly
Striped muslins, ginghams nnd nain
sooks havo nppcorcd in wonderful profu
sion tills season. Pink, bluo lavender and
black stripes of varying widths on a whlto
ground nro seen everywhere, ond a pecul
iar of sea green hus also lately been
brought out which, in combination with
white, looks refreshingly cool. Thin
gowns nro nil modo very full and aro lav
ishly trimmed, oven if it bo only with tho
samo goods. Ribbons nnd loco nro much
employed, however, und as on expensive
variety of luce is not required a very pretty
gown may bo produced ut slight cost, nt
least for tho materials. Of course tho
dressmnkor's bill is largo whether sho does
her work well or 111. It Is a good plun for
everylKKiy to hovo at least a littlo knowl
edgo of dressmaking, enough to allow of
tbo venturo of making thin summer
gowns at homo, even If moro expensivo
goods are put Into professionol bonds. To
pny flS fur tho making up of matorlnls
that cost less than $5 geems scarcely a
reasonoblo outlay when tho purso is only
moderately supplied.
Tho homo dressmaker will find that
skirt and sleeve patterns nro moro to bo
relied upon than corsage patterns unless
Bho lias tho latter cut specially to mcosuro,
If sho has not and doubts her ability to
adapt ono selected from tho general cata
logue, she may moko the skirt nnd have a
regular dressmaker cut and lit the bodice,
which sho herself can ofterwurd trim to
match tho skirt. If It is intended that
much dressmaking shall ho done at homo,
tho easiest way Is to go to a good tailor
nnd havo a pattern cut to nieusuro. This
Will givo n correct foundation upon which
to construct a variety of gowns both for
Street and evening wear.
It should lio borno in mind that, next to
a good pattern, a hot flutiron Is tho dress
maker's best uid to tho achievement of a
workmanlike result. Scams, hems, fac
ings and buttonholes should bo conscien
tiously pressed as soon as they nro finish
ed not allowed to wait until tho garment
Is all completed. This advice lias more
particular reference to heavy goods, al
though muslins will look tho better for
such treatment.

Interesting particulars concerning at
tempts to measure the height of the anrora
have been given the Royal Danish acad
emy by Mr. Adam Paulson. At Godtbabb,
with two theodolites four miles apart, the
height of difforcnt aurorss wns found to
range from one-third of a milo to nearly
forty miles in height. Near (Jape Farewell,
with a base line of about three-fourths ota
mile, the results showed them to range in
height from one to ten miles; and at Spits
bergen, with a base line of about one-third
of a mile, they were shown to be from 800
yards to eighteen miles high, according to
brilliancy. In earlier observations, Flogel
estimated tbe height ot several auroras at
from ninety to 810 miles. Kelmann found

Make a ISuuana Peel Itself.
A trick which works on a simnlo prin
ciple is to make a banana peel itself. To
do this all that is wanted is a bottle, a ripe
banana and a bit of paper wet with alco
hol.' Light tke paper und drop it into this
bottle. When the air in the bottle is well
heated set the banana on end on top and
let it do the rest itself; as the air on the in
Bide cools oil and contracts the outside
pressure pushes tho banana down into
the bottle until it has drawn itself out of
its skin. St. Louis Post Dispatch,
