What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

HARD TO DO JUSTICE TO IT IN PHOTOGRAPHY. - - Some Interesting Types that Have Malay Admirers—Clever gild Beautiful Amer- ican Women Who Have Harried Into Nubility—Lady Grey Edgerton. (Special Correspondence.) HE British type of beauty is, as a rule, hard to photogeaph with justice. The Upper classes have usually a pi - ewe, distant loot( ease the glow of health and ease of manner go far to turn into a regal beauty. The camera, however, gives only the ap- pearance of hardness and chili. On this account many beauties of high sway abroad cannot gain homage on this side of the water through photography. The Other type of British beauty, the gra- cious and tender, however, finds many admirers here. Of this latter class is Miss Florence Willoughby, whose expression Is one of rare sweetness and sentiment, and whose profile indicates features of the warmest and most aympathic delicacy. Miss Leslie Chester is also the -posses- sor of a strikingly beautiful face. Her profile is as clear-cut as any cameo perfected under skillful hands. Though the rest of her features are of the small- er, more delicate type. Miss Chester's eyes are very large and wonderfully deep and lustrous A woman who Is heralded abroad as ene of the really stunning beauties of Great Britain Is Lady Fitzpatrick, who Is inclined to be plump, and whose sunny expression lacks the icy haughti- ness of many of her sister noblewomen. Miss Hope Temple, too, has been blessed otherwise. than with her un- usual musical abilities, and she is doubtless woman enough to prefer her physical charms to her mental gifts and would not give her mellow, dreamy eyes for any of her musical reveries, not even for her extremely well known and well -liked song, \My Lady's Bower. - s. MISS LESLIE CHESTER. To he endowed with the ability to corn - pese is rare enough in women, but to have beauty at the saine time is to be an especial pet of Fortune Mime Ethel Matthews is also accredit- ed abroad as a 'type.\ but her- re- trousse nose rather tinnts her for that distinction, though it does not detract from the charming vivacity of her very pretty face. One of the best known women in all England is Lady Dunlo, who attracted many devotees when she was a music hall dancer, doing her \turn\ every night with her sister on that stage whence so many of the British aristo- cracy have taken their wives, to become the mothers of future nobility. She was won, however, by the Count of Clan- carty, who on the recent death of his father, Lord Dunlo. advanced a step in the peerage. Lady Dunio's very de- cided beauty le of a wild and passion- ate character that eminently justifies her fame and not crushed beneath the gorgeousness ot her new station. Another woman of the lower rank who has occupied the public attention recently is the American variety actress, May Yohe, who. failing to make any particular impression here, cromard the water and found fame, fortune and aris- tocracy in the person of Lord Hope. who fell In love with her and made her LADY FITZPATRICK. to» eir, She tut« a very piquant expres- m i on kr111 lookte like the pretty waitress she played In the comedy, \The.

This exhibition of pluck so tickled the voters that numberless enemies were converted over to the Churchill ranks. Lady Churchill is a stately brunette, of a very serious mien and with deep, dark eyes and a full, rich mouth. Lady Grey Egerton was plain Miss Cuyier of Morristown, N. J., before she married her sonorous title. She is a re- markably beautiful creature. Her form is shapely, her throat and shoulders are superb, and her head is well built and neatly poised. Her features are the per- fection of their sort, and might almost be taken as an ideal type of American beauty. l'eople say that Cora Tinnie has been hiding her light under a bushel in \A Trip to Chinatown\ for a long time. Only a couple of years ago rumors were current that she was the darling of an English lord, and it seemed quite likely that she would feather her nest as May Yohe has done. She went to London with D'Oyly Carte, and flaunted her pert little excuse for a voice in the ears of the long-suffering Britishers. Then she went to Australia and made a let there as the only woman on the stage who didn't use golden hair wash. She had all the elements of success, includ- ing a stage mommer, who trotted every- where at her heels. And yet she has been swamped by \A Trip to China- town.\ She hasn't been seen for ages, but she used to beam with that face of hers and tell wonderful stories about her mommer and herself that people used to believe. And of course they were all true. It is said that at one or two of the private houses to which Cisete Loftus was bidden as a paid entertainer in London recently there was considerable vexation because the note did not in- clude the presence of her literary hus- band. Mr. Justin Huntley McCarthy. One lady said to Miss Loftus: \Of course, you know, it's very annoying. We quite reckoned upon having your husband with us. We should havi mach it quite pleasant for him.\ Thatelit why McCarthy stayed away. He knew it would be pleasant—too pleasant—but as ‘ he is the social sufiertor, or at least equal, of anybody in London. he de- clined to subject himself to the humilia- tion of being known as an entertainer's husband. McCarthy, by the bye, is put- ting the finishing touches to two new novels. both•of which will probably be published simultaneously in New York and London. It is Improbable that he will make a fortune with \A Woman's Impulse.\ published by the Putnam.. It is what may be described as a namby- pamby kind of book, without any tea. ture worth remembering. Something Novel in Hete. Recently in New York a unique Easter hat sale was held by the Social Settle- ment house of a certain church that counts among its parishioners many to whom a head covering of any kind is a thing to be thankful for. All the hats and bonnets and trimmings that cum- bered many attics were collected and trimmed by a club of young women, and then the sale took place. The hats ranged in price from two cent++ to a quarter of • dollar, and the women or young girls.who came to buy them were helped to make a suitable choice It they desired It. More heads In the neighborhood of the settlement were becomingly capped than ever before. At least that is what the amateur mil- liners thought. Called tor a Cigar.

SOME NICHES IN THE POST OF PROGRESS. Another heir -Propelling chi. lc for Highway Travel A Simple I „f»l l'ontrtvance--Geueral Notes ..t lu Industrial HE LATEST AND apparently most practical self-pro- pelling vehicle yet produced In this country has nat been perfected at Springfield, Mass., after three years of experiment. This improved motor carriage is daily traversing the road- ways of Western Massachusetts. The total weight is 600 pounds. The wheels are rubber -tired and run on ball -bear- ings. The front wheels turn on their own pivot, located in the hub, the axle being firmly held by the side bars The lever in front wholly controls the carriage. The lateral movement turns the wheels, the vertical motion starts and stops the vehicle, changes its rate of need and also reverses its movement, delving it backward when desired. The lever con- nections all have ball joints, which can never become loose and cause lost mo- tion. A brake drum of peculiar construc- tion is placed under the seat and con- nected with a thumb button located at the front corner of the seat. By pressing the thumb upon this button, the car- riage If running twelve miles an hour can be stopped within a distance of four feet. The variable speed ranges from three to sixteen miles an hour, [tic normal rates being three, six and ten miles. To obtain these different rates the motor does not change its speed. The increase is made in the gearing, which is alter- nately rawhide and iron and runs quite still T» obtain greater speed than ten miles an hour, the pressing of the button at the front of the seat will Increase th rnechanis wherever cd of the eteetor. The s upon ball bearings le, and otherwise metal- ine bearings are used, rendering oiling unnecessary. The motor has a driving capacity of four -horse power and is what is usually termed a gasoline motor. It is compact- ly located in the box of the body, weighs 120 pounds and is of an improved type. double cylinder and self-regulating as to work required. Peculiar and in- genious devices are employed in the mixture of gasoline with air to produce the proper quantity of gas, only a small drop of gasoline being useul at one time. The gas so produced C0111..14 in contact with an electric spark, thereby produc- ing an expansion or the air in the cylin- der, which is already very much com- pressed by the action «f the piston. The cost of running this carriage is one-fourth of a cent a mile A supply can be carried sufficient for 150 miles and can readily be replenished at any town en route. The motor has proved entirely re- liable, having been run several weeks ou a test, and shiews no variation in power or speed. It la temple, will cost but little to run, and is applicable to business as well as pleasure purposes. A Monkey'. Caprice. The last of the famous group of pets Which Frank Buckland collected at his house died Jan. 17. It was the monkey. Tiny the second, of the species Cerro- plthecus mona. She was a beautiful and graceful creature, covered with a coat of handsomely shaded hair, atol had been under Mrs. Buckland's care seven- teen 5earet and a half, She had the life- long reputation of being exceedingly attache , . eue and Was an aceortiplIshed thief. She led a gray parrot, which had been an inhabitant of the house for twenty-five years, a tereible lire; and when she was let out of her cage she played havoc with her master's papers and manuscripts. She would dash about the room, make a clean 'sweep of the table, and fill her pouches with anything that appeared especially nice. Her two later companions were a gray parrot and a thoroughbred dachshund. Olga. Every morning Tiny and the dog had a game ot romp, that invariably ended in the discomfiture of Olga. The dog would run around the monkey's cage, barking loudly; Tiny, inside the wires, would run around also, and when opportunity occurred, would seize the dog's earn and keep pulling at them until Olga released herself. Notwithstanding these little disagreements. the dachahund appeared to mist( Tiny and wren about the house as if Reeking her The parrot. too, 'seemed to regret the loss of the mon- key, and efforts were made to sheer her drooping spirits. if possible.

Saville style* the most prolific source of hieroglyphic inscriptions of what we have knowledge The ancleet inhabl- tants of Copan, Honduras, Mr. Saville says, in his paper read before the American association, appears to have been more literary in character than even those of Palenque. There have been found there twenty-four stelae, all of which have inscriptions, beside* al- tars, slabs, and hieroglyphic steps in large numbers. Pottery vessels and potsherds have been found bearing glyphie either painted or engraved. These potsherds have been found In such quantities as to show that thou- sands of their vessels had hieroglyphic inscriptions. The inscriptitins are in- timately connected with the symbolism almost invariably found with them, and an understanding of the symbolic marks and ornaments will largely aid in de- ciphering the glyphs. Simple but Useful. To easily open the small door whleh gives egress and ingress, Without being compelled to go into the pens, is to save labor, especially if it can be done from the hall or passageway. The illustration explains itself. A heavy weight closes the opening, and is lifted up by a cord running over small pulleys, fastened from the hall. The Coat of the Gnat. The gnat is a tiny, tiny insect, but sometimes just as annoying and hard to get rid of as our better known mosquito. In warm weather plenty of these crea- tures are to be ihund in the woods and near the water, where when the proper time comes they deposit their tiny eggs, leaving them to float about in the pool until they are hatched. Now the gnat, small as she is, has a wonderful instinct which teaches her just what is best to do in order to keep her eggs safe until they are hatched. She joins them all together, sticking them fast with à sort of glue which she furnishes herself. Anti she forms them int« the shape of a hollow boat, which would not upset even if it got filled with water. The upper end of each egg is pointed, and they are joined with the pointed ends upward. There are from two hundred and fifty and three hundred eggs in these little egg -boats. They are to be found upon the surface of almost any pool in sum- mer time. When the young are hatched, they cerne from the under side of the eggs and the empty shells still float about on the water. These tiny, tiny grubs are at first white, changing to a darker celer, and in a few days changing again Into a sort of chrysalis. In about a week this sheath bursts open anti the winged mos- quito or gnat comes out. It is already hungry, you may be sure, and quite ready to attack the fat legs and arms of little children who venture too near Its haunts When we think how many thouiands of these little pests are hatched out each summer we begin to be quite grateful to the birds and larger insects who make meals of them and no prevent them making meals of us Gave a Lion Strychnine. () t ie ef Barnum & Bailey's lions re- cently injured his paw in such a man- ner that It became a kindness to kill him A piece of meat filled with strych- nine was given him He greedily swal- lowed the meat with its heavy dose of poltion. The onlookers expected to see the strychnine operate at once, but they were mistaken. The great brute lay drown contentedly and seemed to go to eileep For twenty minutes or so he lay still Then, with no warning, he leaped high into the air and fell with a thud to the floor of his cage. He was dead by the time he struck, and had prob- ably suffered no pain except at the very instant before he died. Trout Fishing st Night. Night fishing for trout nas suddenly become thee rage, and hereafter many anglers may be found beside the brook enjoying the nocturnal pastime. The theory advanced by »xperts is that the speckled beauties wander from their fireside more safely and successfully for food In the night time. It is very plaua- Bile that in securing Be victims the trout moves about with more freedom in the darkness. Hence it should pay the angler to spend a little time with his fly in the evening. Chicago's First Ordinance. Citizens were forbidden to 'i't pigs wander in the streets; to \shoot off any firearms\: to steal timber from any of the bridges for firewood or other pur - prows: to endanger the public safety by putting a red hot stove pipe through the board wall; to run a race horse through the principal streets; to exhibit a stal- lion without due consideratihn for pub- lic decency; to leave timber lying loose on the streets; Or to throw dead animals in the river.

On• Ward. Off the Other and the Bearded Mau Happy. The beard is generally regarded as merely an ornamental object, except by a few, says a writer in Pearson's Week- ly, who look upon it as a time•aving convenience. Now, however, it appears that the beard is uot only ornamental, but decidedly useful, as those who do not shave are much less subjected to facial troubles than those who submit to the razor. The reason for this new theory Is a very simple one. In the first place, the beard is a great safeguard to all those who stiffer front sore or weak throats, it is a protection against neu- ralgia, and, lastly, it is now claimed to be of great assistance in warding off toothache. Dr. Chabbert, a celebrated French physician, has come to the con- clusion that the reason why there are so many more cases of facial paralysis among women than with men 13 because the former have no natural protection for their fair faces. It la true that men are much more exposed to cold, frosts and biting winds, which bring about the affectation, than are women, but in the few cases which have come under Dr. Chabbert'e notice where men have Buffered the patients have almost in- variably been clean shaven. To some men it must be a relief to find that they, still have some ancient privileges as yet unclaimed by the \new woman,\ al- though there is a case on record where one of these eccentric ladies even went so far as to grow a bushy beard four and a half feet in length. She was presented as a prisoner to the czar in 1724, having been captured froru the army of Charles XII. MISS WHITE AND MISS PINK. Teachers Who Wear Different Colors for the Purpose of Identification. Two public school teachers in this city are twins and their resemblance is marked, says the New York World. They are the Misses Fanny and Amelia Purple. They teach in grammar school No. 46, in East Twenty-fourth street, as substitutes. Miss Fanny, after teaching for some weeks, was taken 111, and her sister took her place. The pupils didn't know the difference. Neither did the principal, Mrs. Tate. \Why Fanny, I thought you were ao sick that you could not leave your bed,\ said Mrs. Tate to Fanny's sister. She was assured that Fanny was sick After this episode the two sisters, who had dressed alike, wore different colors. Amelia chose white anui Fanny pink, and thereafter they ,were known as Miss White and Miss Pink. This did not help matters much, so far as the true identity of the young ladies was concerned, for it was necessary to re- member the color Miss Fanny wore and that adopted by her sister. Mrs. Tale told a World reporter yesterday that the resemblance between the two young ladies was as great mentally as it was physically. They not only had the same likes and dislikes, but their ifttel- lectual capacity was the same. When they were graduated from the Normal college they got the same percentage. They are inseparable. Their iterating are dead. They live with their uncle, Dr. Purple, a well-known physician. The Coat of the Postal Ser•Iret. The normal increase in the earnings Of the postoffIce department is eight per cent a year. When the panic of two years ago occurred. with Its consequent business depression, the postmaster - general estimated the Increase of rev- enue for the following year at only three per cent. But he overestimated.
