THERE has always been a popular idea Unit New York did not
value beauty la its women ns
highly us style. Gotham's feminine
types nre perfect in their way, clear
Ctlt, high bred, well-groomed, and above
all, perfectly clad. But they are uot,
as a rule, pretty, lu the sense that a
Southern or Western iniiii would use
tbe term. It Is In the South that beauty
reigns supreme and a girl on the other
side of the Mason and Dixon Hue, be
6lie ever so rich, clever or stylish, is not

a belle unless she lias also the divine
gift. But lntely Gotham, untrue to
tradition, has beeu Imitating the Southern elites and worshiping nt the shrine
of beauty. Miss Marie Churchill is the
honored object of this adoration. She
is conceded to be th* most beautiful
woman In New York. She Is prominent in tbe more exclusive social circles, Is a woman of superior accomplishments and a prime favorite among
the 400. When the picture printed here

costume she wore at the famous Bradley-Martin ball.
Afflicted wllh Anierienilltis.
Tbe physical troubles of college women ln the United States have been ascribed to what Is named Ainerlcanltls,
rather than the college education.
Amerlcnnltis Is defined as the desire
to "get on," regardless of everything
else. It ls Ameiicnuitls that prompts
the farmer's daughter to get a college
education nnd make opportunities for
herself belter thun those her mother
unci father bad before her. Therefore
she goes to a small college lu a small
town with a preparatory department
attached, where she often begins her
education ns a "junior prep." She furnishes a single room, In which she, and
often n roommate, study, sleep, eat,
make their clothes, and sometimes do
their laundering. She keeps up In her
studies, joins n choral class, a literary
society and the Young Women's Christian Association, goes to chapel once
every day aud twice on Sunday, and
very often falls In love and "gets engaged" besides. At the beginning of
her senior year she breaks down. That
ls the least she could lie expected to
do under such conditions.

anu may be lined with fur, velvet or

will continue to be worn. The novelty
lu their trimming Is a flounce of the
same material about the edges, described by tbe Trench modiste as 'cut
iu round.' "
The New Shaped Corsets.
It Is being announced by tbe fash-
ionable modistes and women tailors
that they will lit gowns ouly over the
new shape corsets, while the cloak and
mantle makers say tbat all garments
for the fall nud winter itrnde will nlsu
be modeled for figures wearing tlie
same style. There ls a most pronounced
change from tlie old corset, whose chief
end seemed to be to accentuate the
length of the waist nud to rnlso the
bust. The new corset has what the
shop girls call "Ihe low bust" and "sudden hip." The brick Is noticeably narrow, the hips very full and the bust entirely without formation. Except nt
the waist line lhe garment scarcely
touches lhe figure nt nlL The change
Will not be objected to by slender women, while, ou the oilier baud, to women
with n superabundance of flesh the new
corset will be nothing short of nn abomination, which Ihey will be slow to
Harmony In Contrasts.
We have always been taught to believe that one of the canons of good
dressing Is the harmony of color In eyes
and gown; but this theory bas beeu
exploded, nnd It hns been clearly demonstrated by women of good taste tbat
nothing Is more fatal to good effect
than a blue-eyed woman gowned In
blue, or a browu-eyed woman dressed
all In brown. Colors of contrasting
shades are always becoming and stylish If properly combined, nnd If well
suited to the wearer are very effective.

Powder uud Putches Again*
Women ivho nre never satisfied with i
the color of their hair will no doubt be i
glad to learn that powdered hair Is j
again to be In vogue. Not, of course,
for dally wear, but for dinners mid all !
ma uner of dressy f unci Ions. The ef-
feet ls one that women have always
liked to emulate, and its appearance In
1897, together with a host of other re-
Vlvals, will be hulled with . delight.
Patches are, of course, thc natural ae- j
companinient of powdered hair, and I
they have not been forgotten. The ;
woman whose while locks are plied co- i
quettlsbly on lop of her head plans a
pretty contrast by scattering half a
dozen little black patches over her 1
cheeks and brow. The effect is still J
further helped out if she chances to
have dark eyes and eyebrows that are
slender dark curves. Xo French marquise of olden time could look daintier .
than the dame who manages her pow- ,
der and patches aesthetically.

did uot see It. of

I hud said for the
thirteenth—I love
to be accurate—
for the thirteenth
time that evening.
"Whatever nni I
to do?" he only replied, to his newspaper, apparently, "If money will be of
any use to you, dear, I can let you have
a blank cheek."
I very nearly said: "It has taken
more than money to keep your house
properly for the ten years we have
been married. It takes brains," but he
Is such a dear, good fellow, that I
stopped In time.
However, nt the fourteenth time of

housekeeper 1 had contrived to prepare

StilL there was that friend of George's
brother Jim, iu Queensland, coming on
Thursday to speud a few days, and this
was Tuesday.
1 could not put lilm off, ns It was the

concluded as I wandered sleepily upstairs. "I must try Miss Griggs at the

Thitherward I accordingly wended
my way the following morning ns soon
ns I had got George comfortably breakfasted and dispatched lo the office.
Miss Griggs heard me with attention.
"Well, Mrs. Mason, I think I have a
girl living here nt this moment who
might exactly suit you, provided you
ore willing to take everything about
her on trust. I have been constrained
to do this for the sake of her sweet,
true face. I can't sny that I would go

"But, you know," Interrupted I, "that

She smiled, nodded, and left the
A moment later the door opened gently and a slight, graceful girl of about Z\,
with brown hair and eyes, aud pule,
regular features, stood before me.
She wns very simply dressed lu n well
mude blue serge gown, but her soft,
low voice, a little nervous in its accents,
was beyond all possibility of doubt
the voice of a lady.
I was so much fascinated by that
voice—a deep,musical one,the kind that
haunts you, with the tiniest suspicion
of n foreign accent In it, and yet not
foreign either—that 1 scarcely know
bow I stumbled through tbe usual questions.
"What Is your name?"
"Mary Steven."
"Have you nuy written character?"
"Can you give any references?"
"No, ma'am."
A pause.
Suddenly she proudly raised I.er pretty bead.
"I have no character, madam, and no
references. I shnll uot tell you anything about myself but my name. I
like your face. You seem a motherly,
Christian woman." (Motherly, and,
again, woman to me!)
"I like you," continued this strange
creature, "und if you nro willing to
give me a quiet corner lu your household nnd some small wages, for I have
no money"—ns If I tfould take anybody's services for nothing.-"! believe
you will find me a capable cook and a
faithful servant."
Quite a little (peach, you see, with '
delicate  cheeks  all ablaze,  and   tiny
hands nervously clenched.
"My dear," suid I, impulsively, "I will
take you ou trust."
So my new cook came home. Four
faultless meals she prepared, and ere
the hour for the flflli arrived Harry
Gordon arrived nlso.
He was a tall, thin, quiet man, with
wavy hair, almost pure white, though
he could uot be over lio, brushed back
off Ills temples.

At the same time I felt rather thun

Yes. "lost," but "found."
I do not generally speak lo my bus

occasion 1 did.

I went up to Mary's room—a tiny box

She shuddered.
"Is she with him?"
"She? Whom?" said I. "Oh, there

I led her, unresisting, to the drawing-

At this point I may us well tell you
the story which we gathered iu detached bits later on.

the Forks on their j lUrney. returning to
Greenwood Friday mirning.
The gentlemen expressed themselves
as extremely well pleased with the mineral showings of thissectioo and predict
for it a great future as a mining district;
they also spoke very hopefully of the
outlook for a railroad, which they
Beemed to think very bright. Another
thing which elicited particular mention
was the beautiful situation of the town-
site of G-anl Forks and iis p-ospicts
of becoming a large city thc entire party
saying that it was one of the best situated towns in British Columbia.
At tbe meeting of the stockholders
first held officers were elected for the
en ruing yearaa follows: IVesid mt, Hon.
T. Mayno Daly, ex minister of Interior;

director developed a most satisfactory
state of allairsani encourag id the stockholders to a gre iter fai*.h than ever in
their compiny and its property, wbiyh
by the way is without a doubt one of the
best and mo.t promising properties in
the entire ICetile river and Biundary
districts. From the gool showing at
t 0 mine it was decided to advance the
price ot the stock in the company, most
■ pf which is being disposed of in England, although the people employed in
the working of the properly are alio
buying considerable quantities from so
cents to 25 cents.
The Company's Prop.rty.
Apropo of this moeting of the company and the large amount of development whieh they have done on their
claims a short description of the properties opened by them and the work done
to date may not be out of place.
Tho company owns in fee simple tbe
(.olden Cmvn claim in Wellington
camp and has a bond on the Calumett,
veins. This tunel is uow In about 200
feet and is expected to tap all the leads
for which it is being driven within the
next icoo feet. When in about 70 feet
a blind lead with a width of iS inches
was tapped and since then two other
blind ledges one six inches the other
lour feet wide having been cut which
gives at least eight veins to be opened
by this tunnel when completed, provided no more blind leads are tapped.
The general character of the ore is
practically the same in all the workings,
solid pyrrhotite alternating with copper
sulphides and iron pyrites in qur.rlz, and
all the  ledges  cut squarely across the
Seven weeks from next Thursday the
qualified electors of the municipality of
Grand Forks will be called upon to
elect a mayor and i-ix aldermen to serve
ior the ensuing year. Already the mayorality bee is buzzing around the cats of
a number of prospective csnjid ites and
the contest promises to be a lively and
interesting one. According to the municipal election act the qualifications
necessary to entitle a person to be nomi

This narrows the list down from which
to make a cholco for mayor to the Icl
lowing persons: John A. Manly, W. K
C. Manly, L A. Manly, Jeff Davis, Robt
Hewitt, Dave Woodhead and P. McCallum, and as Mr. J hn A. Manly bas
lately declared that he is not, and under

erected on that iroperty.
The machinery fr r the Winnepeg
passed through 1 Irani Forks last Sa ur-
day. it consists of a complete hoisting
and  pumping  [.■ ant, a do-horse  power
formation, which is djorite and granite..
There   is growing   on the  property' quietly feeling the public pulse in his
plenty of good  timber, suitable for   use
f oth in the a ins workings and for fuel;
an abundant supply   of water for all
purposes is also possessed.   The  prop-
1 crty is heated  on the summit ot the
j mountain ridge between  Fourth of July
I creek and L'nd creek, with an altitude
' of   about 4500   feet.   The wagon road
between Gran 1 Forks and Greenwood
crosses the properties and gives a down
gtaee full nine  miles to Grand Forks,
and the proposed railway lino from the
Columbia river to Pentieton is surveyed
within a shoit distance of the mine so
it will be easily accessible for ore shipments.
A complete hoisting and* pumping
plant has hem ordered from-ithe Inger-
s'.l S'argetnt D '11 Company, a 50 horse-]
power bii er, a 4 > horse pVwer Standard Ledgerw'ond hoisting cn»ine and a

be returned in the shaft on Ihe Winnepeg lead and it will be pushed down
to a depth ot 403 leet as expeditiously
as possible. Work on the big tunnel
wiil also be continued all winter.
From twelve to fifteen men are now
employed by tbe company and it is ex.
pected with the installation of the machinery plant an increase of four or five
men will be required ts be made iu the
working force.   Ample building accom-

months ago the Golden Criwn, by reason j P^'y ba- recently erected a large shaft
o.' the extensive development and the | house, a commodious building for the
wonderful showing it has made under j protection of its machinery plant.
the same has now become the "show"
property of this entire section and faith
in its becoming a dividend payer is
more   universal  than   In   perhaps any
behalf and if it is found to beat suffi
ciently strong to insure his eloHton they
will enter him in the race. <M the condition of; ffiirs have change*! lince the
last election they feel confident that be
would be a winner. But In tbe event
that it is apparent that Mr. McCallum
cannot develop tbe necessary strength
to secure an elec ion, a combination
will ho effected whereby his friends will
name the Candidate and that gentleman
will be returned to his seat in the council.
The feeling still exists tbat it would
be detrimental to the
city to allov the management
municipal affairs to pass under the con
Irol of Mr. MgCaltuni and bis followers
and with that view in end 'he friends ol
both W. C. K, and L. A. MAuly ur;
canvashig the situati >n for tbe purpose
of ascertaining which one of the gentlemen will put up the strongest race. As
the contest is young yet it is a hard
matter at this time to pi edict which one
of-them will be decided upon to head
the aiiininis'.raiioi ticket.
The friends o( Jeff Divis are qiietly
resting 011 their ores, wearing a knowing
smile on their face, watching ever/-

All Krect Carriage.
A gymnasium director of long experience disapproves shoulder braces.
They weaken, so he thinks the muscles
whose function It is to keep the shoulders In their normal position. This
they do lu two wnys: by relieving tbe
muscles of their work, and by pulling
a constraint upou them and so depriving them of 11 normal supply of blood.
instead of artificial shoulder braces,
the director recommends the frequent
and persistent use of exercises specially adapted to promote au erect carriage.
It ls not enough, he says, to work an
hour or so dally In a gymnasium, The
proper exercises should be takeu many
times a dny, nnd therefore should be of
a sort that can be practiced anywhere
and without special apparatus.   Some
of tbe habits and exercises on which
he lays stress nre as follows:
1. Make It a rule to keep Ihe back
of the neck close to the buck of thc
2. Roll the shoulder backward and
S. Try to squeeze Ihe shoulder blades
together many limes a day.
4. Stand erect at short Intervals during the day—"head up, cbiu lu, chest
out, shoulders back."
5. Walk or stand with tbe bands
clasped behind the head and the elbows
wide apart.
0. Walk about, or even ruu up stairs,
with from ten to forty pounds on the
top of the head.
7. Try to look at the top of your high
cut vest or your necktie.
S. Practice thc arm movements of
breast stroke swimming while standing or walking.
II. Hold the arms behind the back.
10. Carry a cane or umbrella behiud
the small of the back or behind the
11. Put the hands on the hips, with
elbows back and fingers forward.
12. Walk with the thumbs ln the
armholes of the vest.
18. When walking swing the arms
and shoulders strongly backward.
14. Stand now und theu during tbe
duy with nil the posterior parts of the.
body, so far ns possible, touching a vertical wall.
18. Look upward as you walk ou the
sunny side of the street.
The foregoing exercises, It will be
seen, nre happily varied, and are, many
of them, such as can be practiced by
anybody In almost nny occupation. If
he cannot use oue, he can another.
The director goes on to say that even
in a gymnasium a man must be ou
his guard against forms of exercise
that tend to Induce a stooping posture.
"As round shouldered as a gymnast,"
he says, has almost passed Into a prov- j
He recommends also what he calls '
a lie abed exercise.    "Stand ou    the j
back of head, the back shoulders and
the heels by arching the back," and re-'
peat the operation a dozen times or so.

The Strange Belief Once  Kntertalned
In England.
It used to be firmly believed ln England that there was a see*, above the
clouds ami thai ships sailefsfcion this
sea. over tbe bends of tbe ptxiple otl the
earth's surface. The following lllus
tratton of this curious superstition by
au old English writer is not without
Interest: "One Sundny the people of a
certain village were coming out of
church on a thick, cloudy dsy, wheu
they saw the anchor of a ship hooked
to one of the tombstones—the cable,
which was tightly stretched hanging
down from the air. The people were
astonished; and while they were consulting about it, suddenly they saw the
rope move as though some one labored
to pull up the anchor. Tbe anchor,
however, still held fast by lhe stone,
nnd a great noise was heard in the air,
like the shotitiug of sailors. Presently
a sailor was seen sliding down thy.
cable for the purpose of unfixing the
anchor. Wheu he, had Just loosened it.
the villagers seized hold of him, and
while In their hands lie quickly died;
just as though he had been drowncirt.
About an hour'afte^'-Mfe'sailors nbbvi
hearlug no uiore*of;fft'otr*.©uil'»<Ju,..i*'l**»;
the cnble and sailed away. Iu memory
of this extraordinary event,- the.Veilittt-
of the village made the hing«s.-t*f.((tlii$,
church doors out of the Iron yf„()fja,
anchor." It Is further stated tblit these
hinges "are still to be seen there;" **a
bit of evidence much like Muiichaii*
sen's rope wherewith he once climbed'
to the moon, if you doubted the stoi'y
you were confronted wllh the rope.
There Is another queer talc about
this aerial oceuu. "A merchant of
Bristol," it ls said, "set sail with his
cargo for Ireland. Some time after,
while his family were at supper, a knife
suddenly fell In, through a window, on
the table. When the merchant returned and saw the kulfe, he declared It to
be his owu, and said that on such a
day, nt such an hour, while sailing In
an unknown pnrt of the sen he dropped
the knife overboard; and the day and
the hour were found to be exactiy the
time when It fell through the window."
When a cheerful, brave, light-hearted
i woman is suddenly plunged into tbat
! perfection of misery, the iilues, it is a
I ifad picture.
It is usually this way*—
Who has been feeling- "out of sorts"
for some time ; head lias ached, aud
back also; has

But she doesn't get "all right." She

More Comfort and  Um,pines than in
Big Centers.
"The higher salaries of the larger |
cities is, perhaps, what attracts young
men more potently thnn auy other factor." writes Edward W. Bok, In the
Ladies' Home Journal, poinding out
"Where Success Awaits Voting Men"— ;
In the smaller cities. '*But, unforlu-
nately," he says, "as thousands of
young men huve found for themselves,
these salaries nre not so high as they
were led to believe, nor will the city
Income buy as much iu the metropolis
as they bargained for. A salary of $-',
OHO a year In the big city will not bring
a young mau the comfortable living
which one thousand dollars n year
means to him ln the smaller community. With a far more moderate salary
the rising young clerk, manager or business man in the small city lives like a
kiug In comparison to the man of equal
position In the large center. If bc enrus
a thousand or two a year he has his
own little home, by lease or purchase.
For $25 per nianth he can have his owu
pretty cottage, with Goel's pure sunshine on four sides of It. Ills children J
have their own grass-plot for *tlie,r play-
ground. Ills porch Is his evening pleasure and his Sundny delight. Trees
shade his street, cool his rooms, aud J
make living a comfort. His friends live
all around him. He kuows the man
who lives next door. His neighbor's j
children are his children's playmates.
Ills social life has a meaning to It: It Is j
a joy aud an exhilaration to him. When
ho goes out lu the evening it is Into a
home gathering where every face Is
familiar, and where he Is known and
welcomed. He has time to read, some- i
thing which the man lu the larger city, [
whom he envies, bus uot. Ills church
Is lo him like a faintly gathering every
Sunday morning. The man in the pulpit Is his pastor, who, perhaps, has baptized him, married him, and will baptize aud marry his children. Respect-
ed in his circle of friends, every step
of progress lu his business is known 10
Ihem, nnd is the cause for courgratula-
tion. He ls within ensy walking dis-
tance or trolley ride of his place of
business. To his wife his home is her
joy, and not her care. She has time for ,
her children, her home, her social duties, her rending and her church. The
blood of health rushes through the
veins of his children as they sleep and
piny In an unpolluted atmosphere. Life
means something to such a man: It
means happiness—the true measure of
nil success."
Two Independent People.
Irving Gilbert aud his sister Florence
left Sioux Oity several days ago for
Newton, Mass. Near there they will
buy a small farm, ou the protlucts of
which they propose 10 depend directly
for the necessaries of life. They will
raise only what they actually ueed for
their own food, will make their
own clothes, cultivate the soil with
their owu hands and map out their future lives to suit themselves alone.
They will sell nothing and what they
cau have only by purchase they will
do wlihout. says the Kansas City Star.
Their phiii Is quite distinct from that
of Count Tolstoi or the Brook Farm

more lu line with tbat so successfully
I rled by Henry D. Thoreau on thu

quite Indifferent to the effect the success or failure of thiB experiment may

How History Gets Mixed.
In oue of the debates toward the end
of the last session of Congress a Senator, wishing to make a polut against
the proposed pngennt nt the Inauguration of President McKlnley, referred
with a sigh of regret to the time when
Jefferson rode 011 horseback unnl tended to the Capitol and hitched his horse
to a fence."'"
Although (here ls not a word of I ruth
In the story, It has made It's way Into
what may bo called our folk-lore, and
even luto some books that prcteud to
lie history. Experience shows lhat
when such an error gets a linn foothold It can never be dislodged.
Tbe story was first told by an Englishman who wrote a scurrilous work
on America, but who never visited ihe
country until a year lifter Jefferson
became President. The truth Is to be
found In the newspapers of the dny and
In a full account given of thc ceremony to the British Government by
Mr. Thornton, the representative of
that government at Washington.
Jefferson bad his home at a lionrd-
Ing-liotisc not more than a sloue's
throw from lhe Cupltol. . He walked
from that bouse to lhe scene of the Inauguration, escorted by n body of inlll-
lla and a procession of citizens ou foot.
In our dsy such a progress would be
extremely plain and democratic; but at
the beginning of litis century, and lu
view of tbe nenrness of Jefferson's
home to the Cnpltol, It did uot convey
