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.

FITTING SHOES ON. VANITY IN WOMEN GETTING IN ITS DEADLY WORK. woo... With the Perfect er Mind) and the Atreus - The Young runt (1n issoslating is. ( lerk -They All Went the Short Sites Nun adays. HERE is a thread- bare joke afloat about the woman who wears a No. 3 shoe on a No. 5 foot —a feat that is im- possible in eeact ratio to the an- tiquity of the eteOry. There is a distinct limit to the equeez- ing capability of any shoe, no matter what may be the endurance of the wearer. But, on the au- thority of the most eiperienced dealers, we find it true that the majority of feet are distorted and turned from their nat- ural growth by the obstinate and mis- placed vanity of the general shoe buy- er. Very few . persons get their shoes Meg enough. The great foot folly lies eight here. The masses buy short, broad shoes, so that widths such as dettble C and double D, that ought never to be maieufactured, are in much de- mand. When a woman tells the size of her foot she likes to make use of a short number—nothing is said about the breadth. The best authorities essure us that any one could have what sculptors call the perfect foot, a long, narrow one, If mothers would only begin with the first shoes to put their children in those that are a little longer than the foot, add- ing all the extra space necessary before the toes instead of at the sides, as they are for some unaccountable reason so prone to do. Thus, without injury, but rather to the advantage of the toot, a pleasing shape may early be secured at the expense of the present squat ex- tremities. The other day a woman who had worn her shoes so short that her feet had bumped themselves up at the in- step in the most unsightly protuber- ances, told a salesman who tried to per- suade her to lessen the width and to in- crease the length of a new purchase, that she was considered by her friends to have a \perfect Trilby foot.\ She added, with a toss of her head: \A longer size, indeed! Why, my foot was modeled on the other side!\ \For what, eniess it were as a mon- strosity?\ thought another customer who overheard the remark. The Chinese are not the only race who disfigure their useful extremities. They go systematically to work to ac- complish their deformities while our women do It by blindly ignoring the pedal space that nature has allotted them. The Mongolian feet are short- ened by a long turning up of the toes, ours by cramping the member g till the instep is slowly raised in self-defense. A naturally high instep is a thing of beauty, but one that is elevated by force is nothing but grotesque. And (but of course this is a secret) we find, if shoe dealers are to be trusted, that women are not alone in this van- ity. They declare that men commit the same folly of broad and short, and, what is oddest of all, that country people are$ much more prone to it than city -bred inen and women. Another word of warning may prove useful, as it seems not generally to be • understood, that when one goes into a shop to try on shoes the feet are con- tracted from the exercise of walking, and are in the best condition of making them feel easy atid comfortable. Due allowance should be made, too, for the iirst morning hours, when, after a night's idleness, the feet are somewhat enlarged, and quite likely to be aggres- sive in the matter of space. Managing a Daughter. 1. You can't do it; the man who can must be more than mortal. 2. Give her her own way; it will save her the trouble of taking it. 3. Pay for her dresses if you can af- ford it. Her dressmaker wi:1 sue If you don't. 4. If she takes a fancy to any man sou don't want her to marry, tell her your heart is set on her marrying him and swear she shall never marry any other. You can then give her a free hand and she wouldn't have him if he WPS the only man loft. 5. If there is any man you want her to marry kick bim out of your house, forbid the servants to admit him, (Its - tribute man -traps and spring -guns and hull -dogs all around your grounds, lock her In her room and vow IS she marries him you won't leave her t penny.

From the Portland Oregonian: Mr. and Mrs. \V. It. liable, of Butte, Mont, who are making a bridal tour of the Pacific coast, are stopping at the Port- land. They were married at Spokane recently, where the bride, weleknown in society circles of that city as Miss Hither, has lived for several yearn. Her father is a pronnuent furrier of that place. Mr. liable is a prosperous mer- chant of Butte and has a large circle of friends In the northwest. The next morning Mr. and Mrs. Hahlo met with a curious mishap at the Union depot in Spokane, where they were to take the Great Northern sleeping tar for this city over the Oregon Railway and Navi- gation company's line. The Oregon Rail wny and Navigation company's train and the Great Northern train leave the depot within three minutes of each ether, one bound for the east, the other for this city. Mrs. Hahlo, ac- companied by some friends, went to the depot without Mr. Halle>, who was to join her before the train left. He had been delayed up town by some business arrangement. Airs. Hahlo, by mistake, got aboard the Great North- ern train, east -bound. Mr. Hahlo ar- rived at the depot and, supposing that his bride was safely aboard the Great Northern sleeper, on the Oregon Rail- way and Navigation company's train, stepped aboard just as the train wait pulling out of the station. Going into the sleeper Mr. Haiti° soon discovered that his wife was not on the train. Im- mediately, to draw it mild, he got con- siderably excited. The train had gone several miles before he had made up his mind the best thing he cote(' do would be to get off and walk back to Spokane. Meantime Mrs. flahio was having an interesting time. When the Great Northern train pulled out of the depot for the east and her husband had not Joined her in the sleeper, she sent for the conductor, who soon discovered she was Oti the wrong train. A few miles east of Spokane the Great Northern track crosses the Northern Pacific track. There Mrs. Hahlo was handed off the train and fortunately caught a Northern Pacific train back to Spokane within a few minutes. Ar- riving at Spokane she met her husband. Explanations were exchanged and everybody was happy again in a very short time. Subsequently Mr. and Mrs. Hahlo got on the right train together and arrived in this city. • Wad Darolodngs. When Emperor Napoleon I. was crowned king of Italy at Milan, on May 23, 1805, he placed the iron crown of Lombardy upon his head with his own hands. exclaiming: \Dieu me l'a donne; gare a qui la touche\ (God has given it to me; beware who touches it), which was the haughty motto attached to it by its ancient owners. The Hungarian crown, worn at their accession by the emperors of Austria as kings of Hungary, is the identical one worn by Stephen 800 years ago. It is of pure gold and weighs nine marks six ounces (fourteen pounds), and is adorned with fifty-three sapphires, fif- ty rubles, one emerald and 338 pearls. The crown of the kings of France is a circle enameled, adorned with pre- cious stones and heightened up with eight arched diaderus, rising from as many fieurs-de-iiis, that conjoin at the top under a double fieur-de-lis, all of gold.—ChambErs' Journal. NOTES OF THE DAY. Tipperary's ailver mines, after being closed for forty years, are to be worked again. elayence has decided to celebrate the five hundredth anniversary of Cutest - berg's birth in 1897. Something ovee half a million dollars has been expended in factories or ad- ditions to old ones in Sfaine this year. More than 185,000 persons committed suicide clueing the year ended Sept. 30, 1695. This Is an Increase of nearly 20,- 000 over 1894. For the first time in many years Eng- land's channel squadron will be allowed to remain in home ports at Christmas time. Court dress in Berlin is to be modeled on the Venetian costumes of the re- naissance. The deputies will appear as Venetian senators. • In the next lotva legislature, accord- ing to an estimate just made, the re- publicans will have a majority of ninety-six on joint ballot. The negroes of Georgia in 1880 re- turned $5,764,293 worth of property for taxation. This year the amount re- turued is $12,941,230. In other respects they are doing well. RELIGION AND REFORM.

The will of the rate Augustus Knowlton, of Gardner, Mass., bequeaths more than one hundred thousand dol- lars to found a charity, which is to be known as \The Gardner Home for El- derly People.\ Rev. Dr. John D. Paton has arrived safely at Anewa, New Hebrides. He writes that the work has gone on suc- cessfully in his absence and that there were never more blessed restets than in the last twelve months. The only roneinftive erfilencr of a man's sincerity Is tiler he gives himself for si principle. Words, money, all things else, are comparatively easy to give away; but when a man nialtes gift of his daily life sail pr ac ti ce ., it i s plain that the t- • . , vhntever It may he, has taken tn of him.

Story, presented by John Taylor John- ston in 1888. In liawthorne's \The Marble Faun\ the work is attributed to Ssulptor Kenyon, lover of the girl liedre The story of the inspiration of the novel, of the fountain source of its characters Hilda and Kenyon, and ex- plaining the identity of the statue's hand, is authenticated from two soarc- es—a favorite pupil of the original Hil- da anti uosthumotts papers of her hus- band. It was during his consulate in Liver- pool that Nathaniel Hawthorne planned his memorable visit to Rome. He was solicitous to secure a cultivated young woman to accompany his family anti be a governess tphis chi:dren. To this end he wrote to his wife's sister, Mrs. a the threshold of fame. Story, who , * lauteatable death e as rerently cabled from Rome, it is variously asserted, at in the romancer's eye when he creeted the character of Ken- yon. Certainly this description of Hil- da's lover tallies with that of the bril- liant young American as he appeared to his friends in those early student days. The sculptor had a face which whet. tirue had done a little more for it would offer a worthy subpjeet for as good an artist :Is himself; features finely cut as if elreatly marble; an ideal forehead, deeply set eyes and a mouth sensitive anil delicate.\ It was the model of Atialine Shep- herd's band that Kenyon took so ten- derly out of the \old-fashion..d ivory eoffer,\ on the occasion of Miriam's visit to the sculptor's studio: \A 'mal beautifully shaped hand. tely sculpturril in marble. Snell loving care and nice art had been lavished here that the palm really seemed to have a tenderness in its very redistance. Tom-hing those lovely fingers- -had the jealous sculptor alowed you to touch —you could hardly believe teat virgin warmth would not steal front them into your heart.\ This hand, It is said, guided Story in the modeling of the hand in his fa- mous statue of Cleopatra. Repeated visits to the Metropolitan museum, in whose vestibule the famotis statue of Cleopatra confronts the visitor, fall, however. to reveal any resemblance be- tween the de:icacy of Hilda's hand and the majestic symmetry and strength of the hand of the last of the c • • ••• - 0,;:(11s1 II ' CLEOPATRA—STOLLY. - _ - • Lio:ace Mann, who then presided, with her brilliant husband, over the fortunes of Antioch college in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Among the students'of the college's tentativb days none shone more bril- liantly or made deeper inroads on.the affections of the founder and his wife than the gentle Ada:ine Shepherd. Sy was in her senior year when Mrs. Mann proposed that at the completion of the course she should accompany the Haw- • thornes to Rome. The girl joined the Hawthornes in some, where she continued her studies, drinking in the art life on every side and perfecting herself in modern lan- guages, for which she had an inherent talent. While not an artist in execution she had singularly delicate artistic per- ceptions, which doubtless suggested to Ptoimies. Did Hawthorne foresee the fate in store for the original Hilda when he made Miriam say to Kenyon, \There is certainly a providence or pur- pose for Hilda, if for no' other human creature.\ In time, true to her promise, Adeline returned to her native land and wedded the lever of her girlhood. Shortly after their marriage the husband be- came professor of rhetoric, while the wife filled the chair of modern lan- guages at. Antioch college. Then a sheltie - fell.

No other printed copy is at present known to exist and Mr. Gardiner, while writing his history of the time, was obliged to refer to a manuscript in the state paper office. The intereet of this copy is much enhanced by its being addressed to the county of Nottingham, where Charles was destined to commence th - e civil war sixteen years afterward, and by its bearing his signature on the first pogo of the text.

A Reporter Has as Experionco Bab as English. Vialtur. A few evenings ago there chanced to be a distinguished visitor from the British isles at one of the IS hotels, and to him the reporter sent up his cart, putting his name just over the paper he represented, thinking the juxtaposition would es- tatiIish the connection between tha two xvitli sufficient clearness. It has always done ISO with American vic- tims. The bellboy who took the card tursied lone—in fact, he stayed so lone that a second boy was sent after the first, to sse what caused the delay. In a little while down came both, No. 1 bringing the information that the tourist said he . didu't know eituer tme of the gentlemen, and begged to be excused. Tnen the boy explained that the guest on being handed the card gazed at it awhile in silence, and filially went to his trunk anti hauled out a book. For tiOtIle minutes he hunted for the name of the reporter in his list of acquaintances, and then he began running through the Ps, thinking it possible he must have met a Mr. Post somewhere in his travel% As Ms search wasn't successful in either case he got a second book and went through thit with a similar re- sult. That was why the bellboy tried the reporter's patience and that was why the message came that \he didn't know either one of the gentle. men.\ Saved by a Dog anti a Drum. In 1776 a ship was wrecked on the south coast of England, not far from Portsmouth. Fortunately, owing to the sharp wits of one of the sailors, all souls were saved, lie got a drum that happened to he on board, re- paired its defects so as to make it quite watertight, then fastened a rope to it securely, anti tied the whole round a dog. Next he let the dog into the sea, and the noble animal succeeded in reaching the land. There some on -lookers seized the drum and hauled in tile rope. Ily now a much stronger rope had been tied to the end of the first one, and by its means pssseng.,rs and crew were gradually drawn ashoee.
