What is Egypt? Is it a great farm? an unrivaled archajological museum? a delightful health resort? a valuable naval stronghold and place of arms? an important center of Mediterranean trade? In truth it is each of these things and all together, even to the most casual and cursory glance of tho most irresponsible and indolent holiday maker. But what it is not to him—and heroin he takes courage from the thought that neither is it to those ninety-nine out of every hundred Europeans who have longest and most carefully studied it, Mr. Wilfrid Blunt being the hundredth—the homo of a nation. If there is one fact that seems to •tare him out of countenance whichever way he turns—one fact with which the present and tho past alike confront him; which meet* him in the tomb and the templo, in tho river meadow and bazar; which looks at him out of the eyes of pictured Pharaohs, and of almost as mute and monumental fellaheen; which takes voice and motion in the many-colored, chattering « crowd of Cairo, and which is almost W4U 4V1UQ1 l/\J|t«.l* V\J »\sun.

[COPYRIGHT, 181M.1 Unless current report, indorsed by the strongest corroborative evidence, is misleading- a few nationally famous New York er s, M r s. Grover C1 e v eland is to-day the most unhappy woman to bo found in all this republic. This state of things is clue to the fact that she is the num. mother of a little girl whose rcuson IK a blank. Baby Ruth, the pride of so many households, suffers from one of babyhood's weirdest maladies. Her brain will not develop. At this moment the ifamous infant is beinp; reared in what may be termed practical seclusion, as all visitors to Washington who have tried to seo the child know but too well. It is the reason for this reluctance oti the part of the parents to have the child seen und spoken to whioh has been obscure to many. , Very naturally the very existence of younp Ruth's affliction lias given riso to endless speculation and exaggeration on the part of the few who have been permitted to learn the truth. And, of course, it is through the servants that the most important particulars have leaked out, notwithstanding the really frantic efforts at concealment made by one famed phjfsician iu New York. Some of the rumors, for instance that the child cannot prattle at all and is in constant pain, are doubtless rather reckless. The substantiated fact is that since it finally dawned upon the family that an extraordinary backward mind was the trouble, undue pains have been taken to stimulate little Ruth's intellect, and all to no apparent purpose. Mrs. Cleveland has interested herself in numberless devices for the training of her babe, and spent hours in endeavoring to teach it to articulate. All these curatives havo been effectively concealed by the representation that Mrs. Cleveland is a kindergarten enthusiast, when in reality she is acting under her physician's instructions in trying to develop reason in her child. But her efforts steem to bo 80 discouraging that heroic measures may have (b be resorted to. could not.fail to bo important developments in the entire railroad world. Still, business may have no connection with the affair, and it may be simply a sentimental reunion. Those who follow such matters ore interested in the silent Vanderbilt contest for supremacy in the family. Some of the Van- derbilts are not pleased because Cornelius affects to be the head of the clan. The trouble is not unlike that which the Astors had, but it has not been so aired, because the Vanderbllts have been too. recently a social power. Yet there is real disagreement among them as to which must be deemed the family head. Cornelius would appear to lead in the contest. ArUtocracy »nd n Bosi. Richard Croker said recently in the presence of a number of Tammany men that what the reform era have failed to do may be accomplished by the present contest as to whether he has or has not an aristocratic Irish origin. Mr. Croker has, in fact, been much marked. Wages on the farms are quite high, and the storekeepers have lots of money. There is less asking of time on running accounts and the merchants who frequent the wholesale houses report spring trade unusually active So that, whatever the cause may be, New York seems likely to have one of the mof>t prosperous summers it has seen in some years. DAVID WECHSLEB. H 5ME~MlLL WERY. What a ^ seems to think that it will injure him. At all events, he has said that ho hopes no friend of his will argue that he is an aristocrat by birth, for ho does not care about it. and fears that it will make him ridiculous. An amusing outcome of the talk was the action of tho journeymen blacksmiths of Now York (an action which has not yet been noticed) in resolving that if Mr. Croker's father was a blacksmith he need not be ashamed of it, since some of the greatest men have worked at the forge. Croker's father, declared one member, may have been a blacksmith instead of a veterinary surgeon, and, if so. all the better. Finally, it was decided to appoint a committee to find out what the elder Croker really was, and should it transpire that ho really toiled at a forge, his picture will adorn a forthcoming trade souvenir. It looks now as if it will injure Croker politically to deny that his father was a smith. However, Mr. Croker has not denied it. Patience on » IHantttlplpoe. Tho literary fame recently acquired by John Jacob Astor is not his only claim to consideration, apart from his wealth. He is an author- 1 ty on house decoration, and his ideas with reference to mantels are especially noteworthy. During his absence in Europe, which is to be of sevoral weeks'duration, A FAVORITE MANTEL. there will bo constructed after his own designs quite tho most elaborate mantelpiece ever put into a New York house. It is not a costly affair, but is certainly beautiful, and will include, of course, an old-fashioned fireplace wherein logs will burn. This fad of mantelpieces is a ntw one with Mr, Astor, but those who have seen the interiors of the houses wherein he dwells deem him an artist in that line. He has designed no less than a dozen in his lifetime, all quite different and all eon«ededly tasteful and original. One is exquisitely tiled after Ills own designs and another has. a unique arrangement of mirrors, while still another bears carved heads on oaken posts. • In the house which is intended for his mother, and which has caused some little disturbance, owing to the location of a stable, Mr. Astor has taken pains to havo the various mantels superbly designed. Indeed, the young millionaire has had the whole burden of this new dwelling upon his shoulders, and it will be new to many to learn that he was himself anxious to avoid the putting of the stable in an obnoxious position. Its precise location has beon changed three times in response to aa many requests. A Family Qatherlng of Plutocrat*. One of the most important family gatherings that New Yorkers have had a chance to witness in a long time will occur this summer at Newport, when all the Vander- bllts are to assemble in reunion. Every member of this Croesus stock is to meet, and VANDEBBILT ON TOP. Cornelius Vanderbilt will cross the water from England for the occasion^ What it is all about no qno seems to know beyond the assertion that it is a family gathering. Of course, the wealth represented will be enormous, and it has been whispered that, this very wealth has rendered the gathering essential because it is, after all, in one lump, so far as railroad properties are concerned. Should ther» b« r»ally some- A Difficulty About Third C»ndl<1at«. It begins to look as though there would be a split over the third candidate for New- York's mayoralty, about which so much has been said recently. There can be no doubt that despite all that Dr. Park'- hurst has said about united opposition to Tammany, an immense vote,relatively, will be given to the labor man. The third candidacy THE WOMAN SUFFRAGE movement h as QUESTION. gone so far that the Knights of Labor, the Federation of Labor, the Central Labor union and two other bodies have united with tho intention of running a well known man for mayor this fall. But the followers of Henry George and the prohibitionists have refused to enter tho movement on tho basis proposed, and tho hopes of many thirders, as they are dubbed, seem to bo dying out. Dr. Parkhurgt docs not conceal his regret at tho apparently unavoidable appearance of a formidable third candidate. It is charged that the Tammany men are secretly encouraging this movement in order to divide the opposition, but that is a strong assertion. The only persons to be benefited by a serious third movement would be the republicans. It ha's escaped notice, in this connection, that the most energetic workers for woman suffrage have been the laborites. Saiifeel Gompert, head of the Federation of Labor, has had one of the petitions circulated among the local unions in New York, and very few workingmon have not signed. For this he has received the graceful thanks of Jeannetto L. Gilder and Mrs. Russell Sage. Good Tlin«« Returning. Most New Yorkers are nappy In the fact of a distinct revival of business in the metropolis. This is positive" ly uniquo at this time of year, and is attributed to the forced activity necessary alter the continued depression. Money has never been so plentiful on the eve of summer. The re: tail stores are crowded with persons who make purchases and the theaters Warning Guide Pouts for tlia Woman Who Trliui Her Own HaM, Lives there a woman with soul so dead that she has never tried, at least once, to be her own milliner? I don't believe it. The fascination of pretty "left-overs" in lace and ribbon and straw braid is too great, tho creative instinct too strong. There has been a peck of nonsense written about "tho home-made hat," one writer in a fashion department, professedly conducted for women o£ moderate means, solemnly assuring her readers that "no lady should think of wearing an evening 1 bonnet that was not milliner-made, and if possible, it should be imported!" The "if possible" is delicious, especially in these times, and the fact remains that an undreamed-of proportion of tho headwear that makes gay the spring promenade, this year or any other year, is of home manufacture. The woman who can spare the money makes a paying investment if she takes a brief course in the elements of millinery—tho tying of bows, covering of fram.es, etc.—such as various establishments in the city offer for a few dollars. If she cannot, let her use her wits—and tissue paper, for many a handsome piece of silk or ribbon is wrecked in the tyro's hand because tho first experiment was made on it instuad of the paper or cambric with which tho professional milliner always starts tho learner. While the ability to make a beautiful bow comes only by inspiration, any of Eve's daughters who is not hopelessly "handless," as tho old-fashioned folks say, can learn to make a fairly good one, which is all that most milliners achieve. Either ignorance or short-sighted economy is responsible for tho custom among home milliners of using anything and everything 1 save the right thing for stiffening those bows. Result—a collapsed trimming, bite of whalebone or cardboard strips sticking out, skeleton-like, in every direction, and deserved mortification for the luckless bonnet's maker. Regular bonnet wire comes at two or three cents a yard, and sewed on decently and in order, under .the loops, insures the wearer that peace of mind which some one (a man, I'll be bound) has told us even religion is powerless to afford. Wide bows made of piece velvet (not velvet ribbon) are best lined with crinoline. If this is done neatly tho lining will not show and holds up tho heavy material far more effectively than wire. The delusive idea that a small hat is the easiest thing to begin on has wrecked the career of many a home milliner. On tho contrary, nothing is more difficult to make neat and stylish than the tiny toque which looks so simple in its construction—a few flowers, a bow, a buckle, or a wisp of straw braid, and genius, for without it, or its equivalent experience, the toque is tho forlornest of failures. The largo I/at, whoso beauty lies in effect rather than detail, and where originality (i e., accident) in trimming is better bestowed, is by far the safest for tho woman who is not quits sure of her.su If. A wnr.v,tti whose hats are the envy of her frit-mis and the product of her own fair !iiv;'i;rs. lausfhinyly declares herself to 1:avo mastered tivo sciences— that of evolving something out of nothing and that of making things last forever. "Tho way people uutriin hats, discard the 'iisia^s' and then buy nsw ones, appals my thrifty soul" sho says. I have never thrown away anything, but k<??;i all my oJds and ends in a bi;v baud-box and inside of seven years find use for thorn, A ribbon which is too limp or faded for othe purposes does very well under lace o net; feathers whioh seem hopeless can bo curled over and over with a bhm pen-knife, and with a ton-cent aigrette made into a very good pompon; a toucl of gilt paint can entirely transform tarnished cords and buckles aud fadei quills. As for the straw itself, sponge it over first with water alone to take off the dust, then with water and gum arable, whicli restores its stiffness; when the crown begins to break and get hopelessly out of shape, I cut it out, fish out a piece of velvei or silk from my band-box and make i1 into a Tarn O'Shanter crown, sew it to the straw brim, and presto! a second- best hat for one of the children."— Boston Globe. MO^EY ONCE AOAJNf. also have larger audiences, while all enterprises experience a resumption of activity which old New Yorkers declare unique for this time of year. The state of things is attributed, to the surplus of money seeking investment, which must have an outlet somewhere.
