When the ways of svrno women are

t'lnh numbers of women dwelling iu

than before their methodsi'of securing

very   wealthy,  wi"  make  a regular
practice uf bating ei _unt garmenM
gent to their homes on approval, weur-
lng (hem once and ihen returning then.
to stores or t'OStUmerS.   Some   vv.____e_t
will   wear a  dress or a  ckuik  to  tlie

Or ihey will get a hat ur wrap and go

>Of course all of these women are not
wc-il oir   1.sit ihey ull dress well aud
go out a greal deal, and although tlie
Shopkeepers often discover tbe manner
j  iu whieh they are being deceived, they
;  il.. not always like to joabe u fuss for
f<-:i i- of losing a good customer. Besldai
tbey kuuw lhat if they iucur tlie enmity of BUch impostors the  women are
i  quite capable of abusing their good*

;  huiicsi customers.   Strange as lt muy
i   si.'uuu. these women .generally mingle In
j pretty good society, or tbe fringes of it,
I a ini huve some Influence lu the mutter

In the newest things.
This sort of imposition bad been ear-
;  rled on so often by a custom*.- of a cm--
tain large lirm that Its members deter-
j rained to put a stop to ber flaunting
j about in borrowed plumage, at leust
��� whan the plumage belonged to tiiein.
j One Saturday this woman had a splendid wrap sent home on approval, andl
j on .Sunday one of ibe head clerk* of

on Messrs. C.illey Bto.. wharf this
morning led to the discovery thnt
Harry Knutson, a well known
blacksmith of this city, had completely disappeared between 11.30
o'clock last evening when he left

the man had met with foul play
and that his body was lying at the!
bottom of the river, and acting on
that hypothesis a body of men, un-|
der the direction of Chief of Police

river all day in the vicinity of the
wharf without having attained any
