A SKETCH or TBI Si AW WKt Lsf
MARY AKOEBSOX TO FAME.
AIM Flared Lea alius Rlea With Boats
Barrett aad Thame.
(JVom Hit SL Louis Chronicle.) .
One of the most conspicuous figures la tho
Algol and of America to-day is JohnW. Nor
ton. Born la the seventh ward or New York
City forty-s'x years atro, the friends of bis
yonth were Thomas W. Keens and Frank
Chafifrau. Wa find Keens a star at the.a
of 15 aad Norton, la the flower of early man
hood the leading man for Edwin Booth at
the famous Winter Garden Theatre. Ill
was starred with Lawreaos Barrett early in
the 70s, and alternated the leading role
with Charles Thorns at the Variety Theatre
la New Orleans. Early In the Centennial
year, In Louisville, Norton met our Mary
Anderson, then a fair younfltfflrl who aspired
for stage tarn, took ber under bis guldaaoe
and, as everybody knows, led hor to fame.
Mr. Norton Is now the proprietor of th
Oraad Opera House In St. Louis, tho Da
Qurane Theatre, rirfsburc an I one of the
r-lookholdero in the-American Extrmvaganss
Company. , ,
One afternoon early In June he hobbled
Into bis New York Oluoe on Broadway an
rn-onntered bis business manager, Oeorg
HeAl.iiius, who had also been a rheumatic suf
ferer for two years. Norton was surprised
that HoHanus bad discarded his eane. Who
cared you? he ufceri. "I cured myself," re
plied McUanas, "irlth Dr. Williams' rink
"I was encouraged by Mr. McMunus' cur
and ns a last resort tried th rink PiUs my
self," said Mr. Norton to a Cftrentrfe re
porter. "You bave known me lor five years
and know how I Imto suffered. 'Why, dur
ing the sammer of 1893 I was on my back at
the Hullanpby Hospital, in this city, four
weeks. I was put on the old system ot dlet
ln(r, with a view to clearing those acidulous
properties in my blood that medical theorist!
say is the eaoso of my rheumatism. I left
the Hospital feelins; stronger, but the first
damp weather brought with it those ezoru
elating pains to the legs and back. It wnl
the same old trouble. After sitting down
for a stretoh of five mtnates the pains
screwed my legs Into a knot when I arose,
and I hobbled as painfully as ever. After I
bad taken my first box ot Pink Pills It struck
me tbat the pains were Ires troublesome. I
tried another box. nnd I bepnn almost un
consciously to 1..y r.i.'.h u ill.-I'iv.lc l'l".
I Improved so rapidly that 1 could rise ullt-c
sitting at ray dt-sk for an beur and the
twimres of rheumatism that accompanied my
rising were so mild that I scarcely noticed
them. Daring the past two weHs we bavn
bad much rainy weather in St. Louis. Put
the dampness has not hadlbesHhtest effect
in Bringing back the rheumatism, whieh I
consider a sufllutont aad reliable test of the
rmcacy of Pmk Pills. I may also say tbat
the Fink Pills have acted as a tonio on mj
siomacb, which I thought wns well nigh de
stroyed by the thousand and one alleged
temedirs I consumed iu the pat five Yean."
Mrs. Hastings' Gowns.
The outfit of our present firt
fady in the State of l'ennsylvania,
Mrs. D. II. Hastings, wife of
the new Governor, is remarkable at
once for its quiet elegance and pimiilic
ity. The materials are of the choicest
qualities selected in colors best suited
to the complexion of the wearer and
made up by artists. Some choice gems
were created by the modiste who made
Mis. Cleveland s gowns, others were de
signed in Philadelphia and still others,
it is whispered, some of her prettiest
dresses, by her Bellefonte dressmaker.
A very handsome dress, the one
worn on Inauguration day and
which is now to bo taken for her
visiting and calling costume is of
'aJy's cloth light mauve in color
and trimmed with velvet in the darkest
shade of the same color. In this suit a
change has been rung upon the almost
universal plain skirt, by piping either
side of the front breadth with a cord of
the velvet, quite as thick as one of her
own slender fingers.
The waist for this skirt is round and
finished at the waist with a roll of tha
dark velvet, and at the neck with tho
conventional stock collar. Very full
sleeves finished at the wrists with velvet
roll, and a full vest of moire silk show
ing a shade of mauve between the very
light cloth and very dark velvet with
just the least bit cf cream lace forming
a tiny jabot at the throat, the whole
forming one of the most exquisite com
biuatious imaginable and one that
could only have been evolved from tho
brain of a "really" artist.
For carriage wear with this suit is a
coat of the dark mauve velvet, almost
if not quito three-quarter length, tight
fitting, full skirt and sleeves large
enough to take in the fashionably
large uleeves of the dress waist. A
Frenchy feature of this exquisite coat
is a very full fall of heavy cream lace,
which seems simply to have been
tacked at tho throat and then left to
take its own course to the waist line.
With each full snit there is a small
bonnet to match.
Ono of Mrs. Hastings most becoming
gowns is a street suit of tb viat no.v
popular velutina-cord in so shade of
wood-brown and trinimci. w " tiiat
chest of all fur, the brown marten.
Wlutina cord, it may or may not be
kuuivn generally, is of corduroy weave
but with a surface as soft nnd glossy as
real velvet, and certainly promises to
be the most popular winter goods in
the market. The architectural idea of
.Mrs. Hastings' suit is plain full skirt,
showing two- wide box plaits at the
back. A coat basque with two small
box plaits from the yoke to the waist
line, back and front. The yoke was
rather wide, cut in three points back and
front, and edged with tho brown mar
ten fur. The sleeves "aud edge of the
basque tvere finished with the same fur.
A pretty house grown and the one in
which .Mrs. Hastings was receiving calls
upon Ih afternoon of my visit was a fine
cream wool shot with a cerise red silk
which combination was particularly
becoming to her brunette type.
The skirt of this gown was as plain
arid full as possible pipe-organ plaits
at the back and the whole crinolined
"until able to stand alone."
The waist was laid in the new box
plaits with stripes of red velvet showing
from under them; a roll of red velvet
finished the edge of the waist and. wide
folds of the same bound the throat.
Another, and probably more costl)
than any is a Lyons black velvet, short
length. One peculiarity of Mrs. H's
wardrobe is the absence of trained
skirts. The waist of this velvet is
heavy with cut jet and so made that
with the eleeves removed and the
heavy yoke of jet, a fully-fledged eve
ning bodice is left all ready for wear.
With this velvet skirt there are to be
worn several waists of silk, chiffon and
grenadine that almost defy description.
One certainly does.
An illuminated grenadine in stripes
fully three inches in width, one stripe
in dark green shading out in the
lightest green, and the alternating
striiie in the darkest red shading into
palest pink. The stock, and waist, and
sleeves, finished with red velvet and
sparkling jet, the whole, when worn
with the elegant velvet skirt making
an almost bewildering combination and
one of Mrs. llasting's most becoming
suits. ) M. T. B.

"You need not make any excuse.

"What was that?"
'One dollar and fifty cents! She's

Miniature Klcclrlo Battery.
In contrast to the very largo genertv
tors of eloctriclty batteries and dyna
mo electric machinery iu such com
mon use to-day. It may bo iutorcstln-;
to note what Is perhaps the smallest
electric battery ever constructed, anj
no doubt also the smallest gc-uerator
of electrical or iueli.-iuioal euorsy.
This battery was constructed soiu
years ago by on! of the lectiicltus til
the Boston Telepboue Company, ani
consisted of an ordinary glass head,
through vblch two wirei, oue of co;- j
per nnd the other of Iron, were looped
aufl twitted so as to prevent their com
Ins in contact. The wires actci! as th
clcclndes, and all that was necessary
to cause a current to flow waa to place
a drop of acidulated water In the head.
Certainly such a minute battery fup
Dished but en infinitesimal current, but
could be esal!7 usoj Iu a delicate tele
phone; la fact. It Is paid to have been
jutiinlly used In signaling to a distance
ot i:.-:'rly 200 miles. Cass'cr'fi ?.r:.-l
An Old Story la New Form.
Tho platform of the electric cat
was pretty well taken op by the
driver, a man of the "slugger" va
riety, and a big bag, over which
the man of the "slugger va
riety appeared to be standing guard
When the conductor came to collect
the fares be looked sharply at the
bag, and then 6aid to the tough:
"I'll have ter charge yer fer that
'Til bet yer won't," answered the
nan, looking angrily at him, as it
any attempt at collection would la
duce a prize fight.
Yes, I will, an If yer don't pay,
I'll put ther bag off. - See?" taid the
conductor shortly. lie gave the mac
five minutes more, asked him a sec
ond and a third time, then stopped
the car and put tha bag off on the
sidewalk. The slugger" didn't
even move, and when the car bad
gone about a mile further the con
ductor said to him:
'Yer don't care much for tbat baa
if you wouldn't pay 5 cents for it"
"Ah, come off!" was ' the reply
"What's der bag got ter do wld me?
'Tain't mine. I'd a told yer so if
yer'd asked me."
TThy it"lsi Tabble Cat."
Some writers on the curiosities ot
mimal nomenclature tell us that the
reason we call a feline of certain
markings of oolor a "tabby" cat' is be
cause Tabitha was ths goddess of the
crooked-clawed species. - Wagner's
"Names and Their Meaning," although
it has a splendid department on the
nicknames of birds, 'does not refer to
those applied to the animal species at
all, therefore it will be of no use to
consult that work to find out why
"tabby" eat bears its mniqne name, or
why m "Jerusalem" donkey is so called.
In a carious old work (printed in Lon
don, in 1606) entitled, "Names Ap
plied to Animate Things, M I find the
following, whioh seems to explain the
tabby cat enigma: 'The terms Tab
bis Cat ia derived from Atab, a famous
treete in Bagdad, aeittie of the Ori
ent ; This street is inhabited by the
manufacturers of a silken stuff called
atabi,' the waved markings of the
watered aUke resembling cat's coat.

Some Idea in Canal Navigation.
F, W. Warner, in a paper recently
real at a meeting of the Rochester
Academy of Science, favors the adop
tion of a cog system on the Erie
canals, by laying an iron track in the
bottom of the canal -mil making con
nection with It by adjustable cog
wheels, securing perrect alignment
and requiring little power. He says:
"I believe in the near future we shall
see long trains of eight or ten boats
morii.g east and west in our water
ways at the speed of not le-ss than
five miles an hour. The trains - will
move noiselessly and the power will
oot be expended ia churning up the
water and damaginz the ca al. These
boats will le run on schedulo time
with greater accuracy than the rail
way trains. The entire cost of trans,
portation can be reduced to much
less t h;:n one fifth of the present rate.
Besides this, the carrying capacity of
the canal would be more than quad
upled." Effectual Warning.

When the longs are affected It causes
