Selma, Ind., Oct. 11.—Several Belgians who have been camping near here were awakened a couple of nights ago by the barking, of their hounds. They found the dogs barking near a tree, in the branches of which they could see the dim outline of some animal. Thinking It a coon, one of the men by the name of Meljer shot at it. No sooner had he fired than the wounded animal, with a screech, sprang from the tree at Meijer, striking him in the breast. With its sharp claws it tore his clothes into shreds and lacerated his flesh. It attempted to reach his throat, when it was seized by one of the hounds, which drew it to the ground. All the dogs then attacked it and after an exciting struggle in which one ot the hounds was killed and two more were crippled the men and remaining dogs' succeeded in killing it. The animal was taken to the camp, but none could tell what it was. They took it to nn old hunter and trapper that lived near by who said it was a Canadian lynx and one of the largest kind. This is the first animal of that species that has been killed in this locality for thirty years. tk-ewtmry Kennedy Goes to Strentor.

THE NEW FUE WRAPS NOVEL STYLES IN COATS, CAPES AND MANTLES. Sable I/«ada, With the Popular Seal Closely Following;—The Russian Coat Rends a Long and Varied List—Combinations Are Xnmeroun and Very Fartiionable. Women's thoughts are now turning naturally toward the cozy warmth of furs and fur trimmed garments; consequently there is a lively interest in the i TUK MANTLE. discussion as to which furs promise to be most favored this winter. Sable, the richest of all furs, will lead the way, closely followed by seulskin, which in point of fact never is out of fashion. There are to be countless combinations not only of different furs, but cloth, lace and jeweled embroideries. Sable used in conjunction with seal is destined to be first favorite. Mink, Persian lamb and seal are among the popular trimmings for outer garments. Furs are being much employed in conjunction with brocades and velvets and have therefore a special appropriateness as either the lining or trimming of an evening wrap. Chinchilla, with its soft, dainty tones of gray, will occupy a prominent place among fashionable furs this winter, both alone .and in combination with sealskin. It will be used for evening mantles too. The shapes in fur garments are almost without number. There is a wide choice of lengths and styles in wraps, some of which end at the waist, while others fall below the knees. The Eussian coat is a prime favorite in fur and fur trimmed garments, just the same as it is in all cloth garments. The regular Bussian blouse is seen made of Persian lamb. Many of the newest sealskin coats are made in the full pouched shape, both back and front, to which our eyes ha.ve been accustomed for some time past in bodices of various descriptions, and which will prevail, no doubt, even in cloth and fur all through the winter months. These little coats are wonderfully smart looking, more especially as their shape requires that some kind of ornamental belt must be worn just above the full short basque which waves so prettily round the figure. As a rule, these belts are of the most elaborate description and consist either of medallions of finely wrought metal, connected by tiny chains, or of crocodile or other leather, fastened occasinally with jeweled clasps. These belts, by the way, are very frequently drawn down quite to a point, a la Bernhardt, in front, an arrangement -which adds considerably to their becomingness. Very useful are the full circular capes made entirely of Persian lamb and lined with brocade in some delicately beautiful colors. Certain others of these capes are made entirely of Persian lambs' paws, and although they are very effective in appearance they are by no means extravagant in price. This idea of using the paws of the animal has been carried out in other furs besides the black Persian lamb. Some exceedingly pretty capes, for example, have been made entirely of sable paws, and these also add economy to their other virtues. A cape of sable paws, lined with green and gold brocade, has for finishing touches a folded band of black satin ribbon tied •under the high collar, with a bow at the back and in front a cascaded cravat of cream colored lace. The fox furs, both silver and white, are in demand among those who can NOVELTIES IS FDB COATS. afford them, but are too costly and perishable for the average buyer. An excellent substitute for silver f01 when made tip into capes and muffs is badger fur. The white fox is used as a lining for expensive evening cloaks, while sil- yer fox is art ideal trimming- for a winter gywu. Par capes are of vsrioTia lengths, tome being quite short For cloaks are long. ALICE VAMTC*. IMPORTANCE OFTHE FRIEZE. U I>etennliie» the General Effect of tn* Decoration*. Much of the interest of the wall covering centers in the frieze, as to a certain extent it gives the room its character by determining the general effect of the decorations. It is hardly necessary to say that it nrast be always lighter in color than the paper or material used as the filling; otherwise the appearance will be heavy. Also it must be in the same style, although quite differently produced. The size and height of the room should decide the depth of the frieze, but in no case should it be less than IT inches, or the effect is paltry and insignificant. True, a paper border 9 or 12 inches in depth is sometimes employed in rooms where there is no cornice, but this can hardly Le ranked as a frieze, besides which a frieae must invariably be finished by a wood molding. In a large, lofty room 24 inches is not too deep for the frieze, which should be handsome and bold in design, of cordelova or one of the other materials embossed in relief, such as tyiiecastle canvas, anaglypta or as- bestns. Any of these can be decorated in colors or painted white, but undoubtedly the latter treatment is best should the room require light. Another beautiful effect may be produced by embroidered art linen or a stenciled fabric, and again by stamped and printed velveteens. With such friezes the filling must be handsome and rich, in character, and ordinary wall paper would be entirely out of place. There are, however, many simple friezes, such as an embossed canvas brush washed with two colors in order to get a metallic effect, a French leather paper and the printed paper. The floral frieze, which is decidedly popular, requires using with extreme discretion; otherwise it becomes aggressive. Especially is that the case when the flowers are of some very positive color printed upon a cream or almost •white ground. The contrast between THE VINEYARD FRIEZE. the ground and the design should not be too sharp if the effect is to bo the most pleasing, and' again it should not be used with filling which is crowded with design. Very often a perfectly plain frieze proves most successful, and when it is used it should be the same color as the ground of the wall paper, but several shades lighter. Sometimes it may be in paper, though for the most delicate colors it is advisable to use distemper, or, better still, the washable water paint duresco, which dries with a surface like porcelain. A decorative frieze for the dining room is one of leather, having a bold design worked out in copper nails, and when used with oak paneling the effect is particularly rich. Then another, which is equally suitable for either dining room or library, is of Spanish leather, and this again looks its best with oak or walnut. There are a number of other materials which may be employed for friezes, such as painted tapestry, lacquered metal and fibrous plaster—all beautiful and effective if properly and appropriately applied. Artistic Draperies. The finish imparted by well arranged draperies is worthy of serious consideration in the furnishing of a room. At- TVrSDOW AifD BED DRAPERY. tention is here called to some plush topped curtains and artistic bed hangings. Both are worthy of special commendation. The material used for the bed drapery is quite inexpensive, yet the effect could hardly be improved upon. The outer curtains and the bedspread are of china blue stamped velvet, with sateen linings and frills, while the sage green leaf pattern is lightly repeated in the fringe and tassels. It is a most cozy little bed set in a nook of pale yellow brocaded wall paper, and in this room the Chippendale mahogany strikes the right note of contrast. Mere Mention. The sleeves to fur coats are smaller than last season. Black and white pluniee are in great demand in millinery. Muffs are large and dressy, many of them being elaborately trimmed. The fashion is increasing in finger rings with cabochon stones in close settings. Fur promises to be a favorite trimming in conjunction with lace on winter dresses. Fashionable among finger rings are the French hoop, the princess and two stone rings with overlapping ends. The Russian blonae is fashionably made in Persian lamb or other furs and velvet The sleeves are of velvet and the blouse of the fur.
