Or else be sure you will it rue." From time immenforlal new clothes tiave been the order of the day for Eas-ter.the Persians even having a royal mandate issued to that effect. Undoubtedly there were good sanitary reasons behind this autocratic decree, for many of the JDriental or semi-barbaric peoples do jnot voluntarily change their garments ftintil absolute necessity demands it. Even after reaching1 this country, with its gospel of weekly tubbing and clean fcody linen, half the scions of classic ptaly, historic Jewry and Syria have (themselves and their young "sewed up" jtn the early autumn, only to be "unpicked" and divested of yards and yards rf body wrappings when the ardent fcie&ms of the springtime sun make Its lunger continuance unbearable. Happy, then, that custom even to thesfl jhyglenically benighted ones says "Some-thlng clean and something new." While the .American mother, praise be! liajt never had this crime against bodily icleaniiness imputed to her charge, she Soften feels with Mrs. Caudle that "thick wnerinos and beaver bonnets" should no longer be tolerated lest "the Briggs girls in their nw chips turn up their noses, and the Brown lcok at the Smiths" and then at the little Caudles, as much as to pay "Poor creatures! what tigures for the? 1st of May." Although this year 'thick merinos and beaver bonnets' may te finite as comfortable as more summery garments, there must at last be a freshness of apparel if one would feel in lull accord with the spirit of the day. and sponging, pressing, altering, and renovating tak- time and strength. A SPOTLESS HOME. Than the house must be made fresh unrl spotless, as befits the celebration of it he resurrection, and as there' is a general homecomlnsc and much entertaining Jlo mark this period of rejoicing a corresponding amount of preparatory cooking 5 s essential. If all these arrangements can be perfected during the week, menus ind decorations thought out, purchases jmade, gifts prepared for mailing and 'the precious1 wotes of sympathy or love Jnd remembrance for the absent writ-len. .then the home mother, as well as "-the 'rest "of the family, may feet that .ihere is ample reason for her to "re-jjoice" without the superconseiousness of ,a body too tired for anything but the 'Led. EASTER FLOWERS. Flowc;rs have ever had part in the .celebration of Easter, and this year will ,be no exception. While there will be an Hinusual dearth cf wild or garden flowers 'lowing to the unprecedentedly severe win-ter and the early date upon which Easter If a lis, the florists have busy, and there will be the usual importation of rl Ulster lilies, there are quantities of the water lilies, hyacinths, daffordils. narcissi, tulips, azaleas and gardenias. II f one has been providently minded and taken time by the forelock, boughs cf cherry, sweet currant, dogwood and tpusty williow may have leen put in water r.d brought into bloom against this jtlme. At the "swell florists the newest rthings for holding Easter flowers are jlittle stumps and logs made or real birch hark and covered with lichens and moss. These make exquisitely, dainty Easter gifts and decorations an idea that may 1e utilized by any one who has access to a bit of woodland and is at the same time the possessor of a set of nimble Angers and a Tair amount of inventive kill. EASTER EGGS. Although the shops axe filled with egg3 f every size, material and style of decoration, the average child feels aggrieved unless allowed to do some artistic work on his own accout with a genuine "hen-laid egg" as the foundation. It is not necessary to buy dyes for coloring eggshells. Beautiful shades of red or orange may be obtained by boiling the outside km of an onion for a few moments; saffron gives yellows, and spinach or parsley a delicate green. If a "flower" pattern is desired, a. piece of cheap, new calico wrapped smoothly about the egg and then boiled will leave its pattern behind. If a different name or motto Is desired upon each tinted egg, write with liquod fat on the surface of the eg and let it stand long enough to "set" before putting into the dye. This keeps the fchell from taking the color and "HEIMWEH" A fascinating story of Love and War, by John Luther Long. Illustrated from drawings by George Gibbs In the April Metropolitan Magazine R. H. Russell, Publisher. New York ..." A 35 -cent M agazine for 1 5 cents All Newsdealers (E66) the Inscription comes out in pure white. HOME MADE SUGAR EGGS. i These are not hard to make.; They may be made with boiled sugar' or ? much more easily with confectioner's sugar and white of egg. Whip the whites of three eggs until stiff. Then beat in a pound of sugar a little at a time. When just the right degree of stiffness for moulding divide with different portions and color some green with a little spinach juice, some pink and red with a tew drops of liquid cochineal, some yellow with a bit of saffron or the yolk of an egg. Flavor also to taste. Then mould egg-shape, and set aside on a sheet of oiled paper in a cool place to dry. When ready for the decorations, soften a little of the sugar left for that purpose with white of egg or milk and place it in a regular pastry tube or a funnel of stiff white note paper, from which a bit of the end .has been cut. With this "blow pipe" names, mottoes, even little figures of rabbits or chickens may be tracked upon the eggs, according to fancy. If a colored design is required, the contents of the tube may be colored brown with chocolate or red with the cochineal or a little cranberry juice. ICE CREAM MOULDS. At the house furnishing shops there are Ice cream moulds in various deign3 suited to Easter. There are lilies, chickens, rabbits and little nests. After thence cream is made and allowed to "ripen" a little, it can then be moulded. It requires but a few minutes to take the required impress, and each portion is then slipped off into a tray, and the whole number left in the ice box until ready to serve. SOME EASTER CAKES. Among the cakes inseparably connected with Good Friday and Easter, the hot-croAs! hun stands first inpoint of "honorable descent" and popularity. The true Good Friday bun is supposed by those of over-much faith never to mold, and is kept from one year to the next, to prevent disease and ensure good luck. Dried, grated, and added to water, the beverage thus provided is believed by the superstitions to provides a panacea for many ills. Although all bakers nowadays make a point if providing hot-crosB buns for their patrons, many housekeepers have a sentiment about making their own. HOT-CROSS BUNS For two dozen buns scald one cup of milk, add one tablespoonful of butter, quarter of a cup of sugar, and a salt-spoon of salt. When cooled to just lukewarm, add half a compressed yeast cake, softened in a little waiter, and a pint of flour. This should be j done early in the evening. Beat well, and let the batter rise until foaming, land about double its bulk. Then add one-half cup of sugar, a quarter teaspoonfiil of mixed cinnamon, nutmeg and mace, half a cup ful of currants (thoroughly gashed and dried, a tablespoonful of iiineliy shredded candied lemon peel, and enough flour to make a dough that cah bi kneaded. Knead well, cover and Set in a warm place over night. In thej morning turn out on a well-floured board and divide into pieces weighing about three ounces each. Pat them out round let them stand a few moments, oblong shapes and lay thedi roll into in a greased give them rise from hour, dip dripping pan. taking care to room to expand. Let them half to three-quarters of an a knife in boiling water and cut a cross in the centre of each, taking pains not to cut deep enough to make settle, and bake about half in hour in a moderate oven. As soon ab they are done, rub over with a styruifr made by dissolving a tablespoon ful o two of water and return tb the oven a moment to dry and fclaztt. Eat hot and wetfl buttered. Chopped almonds or other nuts, or raisins m: stitutod for currants, if pre an egg may be added, just first kneading. y be sub-erred, and before the GOOD FRIDAY CAKE. Tlits Is a simple tea cake, made from one pound of flour, half a pound of but ter, two ounces of sugar, n spoonful of lemon juice- a teaspoonful of grated yellow peel, and enough water to make a stiff paste. Divide Into two equal parts and roll round cakes, about the size of an ordi nary pie tin. Mark the edges with a fancy design -with a "jigger." or pinch thorn with the fingers; cut each cake in quarters, brush over , with the white of an egg, lay a strip of candied lemon peel on each. Sprinkle with granulated sugar and bake. This may be served cither hot or cold. FLAWNS OR CHEESE CAKES. "Fill the oven with flawns. Jennnie, pause not for sleep. For to-morrow thy father his wake-day will keep," runs the old English rhyme, but the up-to-date Jennie will see that her father has his fill of "flawns" without taking all night to their baking. In lieu of separating the milk into curds and whey the modern cook makes these cheese cakes with A neufchatel or cottage cheese as the foundation. This Is crumbled fine and added to the other ingredients, allowing to each neufchatel one cup of sugar, half a cup of rolled cracker crumbs, four eggs, half a cup of cream, half a cup of currants cleaned, dried and floured, the grated rind of one lemon and half the juice, a saltspoon of salt, a teaspoonful of rose water and cinnamon and nutmeg to taste. Mix well and fill patty tins lined with puff paste ornament the top with currants and slender strips of citron and bake in a quick oven, taking pains not to let them get too brown. FINER EASTER CAKES. Small cakes are much nicer to serve with ices and creams than larger and more elaborate ciikes. which crumble and "muss" in the slicing. To make the popular PETIT FOCRS. bake a simple light sponge cake in a drirring pan, having the cake about an JOHN Madame Butterfly" Inch thick. When, cold turn out on the bread board, and with a sharp knife cut in small squares, triangles, dominoes and diamonds. Split each of these shapes through the center, spread one of the halves with-any delicate preserve, jelly or icing, - put the other half on and ice the top and sides, tising variously flavored and tinted icing, all made from the same original foundation. The pink icing Is flavored with rose, ; the green with pistache, the yellow with lemon or orange and the violet with violet. The domino cakes are usually frosted with white, and the spots are in chocolate, or vice versa. All these little devices add variety and prettiness to the table decorations without much additional labor, once the housewife gets her "hand in." EMMA PADDOCK TELFORD, POG SHOW AT BUFFALO. Rodney Toreador, be Bull Doci Again Winn ont over Taysnnd. Buffalo, N. Y., March 22. The second annual exhibition' of the Buffalo Kennel club began at Convention hall to-day with over SOO high class dogs on the entry list. The attendance was large. The show will continue for four days. The duel, begun at Rochester between the famous bull dogs Rodney Toreador, owned by C. G. Hopton, and Taysand, from the Earlington kennels, was continued here, the former carrying off the honors. There was a splendid entry of pointers and setters, Marks Rush capturing first prize. , Captain James If. Lynch of the , Cornell football team has. undergone an operation for appendicitis at" the General hospital in Buffalo. Eugene Trembl&y, champion lightweight wrestler of Canada, last night defeated John TovnkitiS of New York city, at the latter place, in two straight falls. The Lincolnshire handicap, 1,000 sovereigns, for three-year-olds and upwards, one mile, the first of this year's classic races, was run yesterday in Lincoln, England, and brought out 28 starters. The winners were: Uninsured, first; Wolf-fchall, second; Stojc, third. The famous Worth-His-Weight-in-Gold colt is dead at the Aptos stock farm, California. He was sired by the champion stiillion Cresceus, dam Czarina, being the only colt sired by Cresceus in California. His premature death is a distinct loss to the breeding industry of that State. PUBLIC LAND FRAUDS. Millionaire Stockman of Oregon Indicted for Conspiracy. Washington, March 22. The interior department to-day received the following despatch from Portland, Ore., reporting the latest development in the investigation of the public land frauds in the West: "Charles Cunningham, a millionaire stock man of eastern Oregon, and six homesteaders procured by him, were indicted for conspiracy to-day." WILL REMAIN IN THE ARMY.; ' Washington March 22. Col. Thomas W. Symonds, superintendent of public buildings ami grounds, said to-night that he will decline the compromise reached by the House committee on military affairs granting him permission to become a member of the New York canal commission, which is to enlarge the Erie canal for one year but with loss of his army pay. He said that under the circumstances he would prefer to remain in Washington and retain his grade and position in the line of . promotion in the army. FOREIGN NOTES. A French professor has been inquiring Into the comparative criminality of the professions. He finds that the conviction for every 100,00 of each are as follows: Lawyers. 100; artists, 33; doctors, 25; lay teachers, 19; clerical teachers, 7; Catholic clergy, 4 In spite of the reduction of transportation charges of 10 cents a ton, the receipts from the traffic of the Suez) Canal for the year 1H03 are only a little less than those of the previous year, so that a further considerable increase of traffic can be' stated. The receipts were $20,700,-000, or $20,000 less than in 1902. Money is being raised in Ixmdon for the erection of a monument in memory of the 127 Jewish soldiers who fell in the ranks of the British army during the South African war. There are two thousand Jewish soldiers in the army that took part In that campaign. Their percentage of loss was very heavy. According to Paris newspapers the surgeons are now dressing wounds with silver leaf. The silver is simply placed on the wound or ulcer, and as it sticks closely to the surface a little cotton soaked in collodin is sufficient to keep it in place. The effects of this sheet of silver are said to be very remarkable. "A local gentleman" of Kilmarnock ad-mited to the provost of that town the other day that he was the author of the bogus letter regarding the gift to Kilmarnock of a Burns temple, at a cost of 500,000, from Andrew Carnegie. He gave the provost SCio for the local hospital, and the incident was officially closed. Gerniains claim that poker is an old German game which for more than one hundred years has been played, and is still being played, in some districts of Westphalia. Emigrants took it to the United States, where its name of schar-wenzel was changed into poker. Mayor McClellan of New York is con-lined to the house with a severe attack of the grip. Itis physicians expect he will be able to be out and attend to business as usual in a few days. LUTHER LONG Author of and "The Darling of the God.' THE BRACELET. j (By. Albert Cim.) Although married to a young and charming woman, Paul ? Holger, the leadimg glass merchant of Islettes never failed, every time that business called him to Paris, to pay hiB respects to Madame Lea de Mortagne, a mature and hospitable resident on rue de Moscou. And every time for the gracious and pleasurable welcome which she accorded him, he left some pretty souvenir ear-rings, diamond studs, ring or medallion as his fancy chose. Madame de Mortagn expressed much gratitude for she was very fond of all jewels and professed ,for all such adornments an incomparable worship, much more ardent than -she gave her religion. " - '' At various times Lea ha noticed in the window of a certain1 jeweler on the Ita-ian boulevard, a, gpld bracelet set with three superb sapphires surrounded' with brilliants, and-she had allowed herself to become fascinated and i infatuated with these jewels. How could she become . possessed of them? "When Paul Holger comes," thought she, "perhaps he will get them for me." Paul arrived and Lea's foremost thought was to contrive to get him to the jeweler's store and make him share her admiration for the jewels. , "Very beautiful indeed," he said, "tasteful and elegant." "And the sapphires, how brilliant. See the blue, not too dark, and at the same time limpid and velvety." "A magnificent blue certainly," said Paul, "only " "Yes, the price" A tiny tisket fastened to the case in which the jewels were lying, was marked $640, or 3.200 francs, and Paul Holger was not in the habit of paying more than $240, or 1.200 francs, or $300, or 1.DG0 francs for his gifts to Madame de Mortagne. This was quite above that amount. "We might go in and examine them nearer," suggested Madame Lea, "they are so charming." "See now how they sparkle! we might talk wi: the jeweler, sometimes the prices afiixed are not exactly correct, and perhaps too he would make a reduction." "All right, let's go In," said Paul. The price marked was a fixed one. It was impossible to lessen it. It was contrary to the rules of the house to alter the price, after being placed on an article. However in this case, it might be possible to make an exception, if it would make the price $600 or 3,000 francs, though it'was a very unusual thing, they would make the price $500 of 3,000 francs." This was even more than Paul wished to pay. "We will see we will think about it" murmured he, while moving toward the door. t "But Monsieur can see other braceletswe have others at very reasonable prices the newest models, " "How much did Monsieur think of paying?" "Not over $300. or 1.S00 francs, or 5-100 or 2,000 francs." "I have something that would surely please you. " "Put it is this bracelet that we desire, and not another, since you cannot " The negotiations were again discussed for several minutes, and notwithstanding the persistency of the jeweler, Paul withdrew followed by his companion. Two hours later Lea appeared again at the store. "It would be the same to you would it not." said she to the merchant, "to let the bracelet go for $400 or 2.800 francs, provided the diiTerence were tlrst paid you?" "Here are $200 or 1,000 france," she said, putting down some bank notes. "The gentleman will come" back this evening or to-morrow." "Under these conditions Madame, it will be all right, that goes without saying. When he comes and wo speak of the price, I will lower it littie by little, you may rely on me Madame." -v ' " 'T do want the braceletso much so much, my heart would; be "broken if I could not get it. It is exquisite." "Never fear Madame, I will put it aside. He will return soon, will he not?" "This very evening, or at the latest-tomorrow, I am absolutely certain." Lea was so persistent, and managed so adroitly, that Paul Holgr promised to return to the jeweler, to,try and make more accommodating termls. It was all she asked. The evening was too far advanced when Paul started out for him to fulfiill his promise. "The store must be closed by this time, but tomorrow morning without fail I will go there," he said. The next day the morning wore away without Lea seeing or hearing anything of Paul or the bracelet. At three in the afternoon she had still received no word from him. Overcome by impatience, and also beginning to feel a little anxiety, she hurried to the jeweler's. v "Madame has had her wish?" "Pid he come?" "This very morning, yes Madame, and the business was concluded as you can believe, with the price lessened to $400 or 2,000 francs." Iea gave a Sigh of relief and joy also, and went bac,k tc her home convinced that Paul,or at all events the bracelet would be waiting for her. Nobody nothing. The impatience and the anxiety returned again, and spurred her on, it was impossible to resist it, she was too miserable. The hotel where Paul Holger usually stayed was situated in the place de la Madeline. It was a sort of family hotel, frequented by the quiet provincials and economical strangers. Lea had been there once before, and with her simple dress and quiet manner, could present herself there to Inquire for him, without causing any comment or offense to Paul. ' Monsieur Holger?" she asked of the clerk, a jovial looking man of about forty, who was seated at his desk, looking over bills. Monsieur Holger is gone, Madame." "What time do you knith .hleiwxrmOwlb "What time do you think he will return?" ' But. Madame, he is no longer here " "If he has gone out, " "Gone away, gone away, Madame, Monsieur Holger left Paris this morning." "This morning?" "He took the train about noon." "To return to his home at Islettes?" "Yes Madame, that is right to Islettes." "Are you sure?" said Lea, who still refused to believe in such a misfortune. "Monsieur Holger told me so with his own lips," replied the clerk. "And while the boy was bringing down hla valise, he even showed me a bracelet that was set with sapphires, and asked me how I liked it, and said it was a surprise that he was going to give his wife this., evening. He said he had seen this bracelet sometime ago. and had kept his eye' on it and it was not dear, not dear at all. There are some husbands," he added wUh his habitual good humor, : 'wh jane foolish enough to offer such gifts to other ladies, who have no claim upon them, but we others provinvial fellows, people of simple customs, and right hearts.

A price move ment of first class imnortance with a mystery attached stimulated the languid speculative appetite of the stock market ;to-day. There was a time to-day when jl,000 share blocks of the leading stocks jbeemed to be accepted as the unit of trans' actions among the shorts in spirited trad ings. Union Pacific was the leader of the movement but the mystery centered about the Northern Securities company and the probable process of its dissolution. All of the securities related to that company and its interests made free price move ments. But as Union Pacitic is the only one of them in liberal supply in the market the bulk of the activity was in that stock and it. was furiously active on dealings in 1.000 to ii.000 share blocks. The source of the buying as well as its mo tive was kept obscure. Other stocks concerned in the Northern Securities merger have disappeared from Sthe market. The fact that lawyers rep resenting the various interests are in con stant consultation to work out the meth cud from distribution of the Northern Securities holdings under the decree of the ourt pointed to that as the coming event. flhe movement in the general market was purely sympathetic.
