White, of Fort Wayne, and Peter Scude- baker, of South Bend. Capt. White was one of the most progressive merchants of Fort Wayne and Peter Studebaker was one of the leading members of the firm of Studebaker Brothers, the wagon manufacturers. Both men were but little beyond the prime of life. Captain White was 62 years old and Mr. Studebaker 61. Both began life poor and each acquired a large fortune since the close of the civil war. WHERE the following countries spend 81 per capita for the maintenance of an army and navy they pay per capita for education: The United States .»3.46, Austria 46 cents, Prussia 25 cents, Italy 24 cents, France IS cents, England 17 cents, Russia U cents. A writer In Weekly bases upon these figures the following comment touching the rapid advance of the United States: "The natural conditions for great material development have existed for uutold ages, and would have remained undeveloped today bad not knowledge, ambition and employment combined to open mines, fell forests and cultivate the soil. A people may have knowledge and ambition, but without employment to bring money into hand ambition cannot be satisfied, and therefore demand for production is not forthcoming. If ambition be lacking, there is no disposition to demand. If knowledge be lacking, employment is impossible." Crwade Against Civil ierrlce Reform. Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 11.—F. E.

Now she is peevish, irritable jeal- , discontented and miserable-in a word, she has uterine disorder of some kind. Law is not the remedy for this condition, she needs medical treatment, her uterine system is at fault. Mv advice to you is, sit down and write a letter to that friend of women, Mrs. Pinkham, of Lynn, Mass., state fully and freely the whole ease to her and she will honestly ad-, vise you what to do. Give your wife that chance, good man! If you do not wish to write about your wife, bring her a bottle of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, watch its effects, you will soon see the beginning- of the improvement; then get her another and keep it up until she is restored to you. the same lovelv woman you married years ago. • Following we relate the circumstances of a case of this nature. Mrs. MELVA ROUTON, of Camby. Ind.. says: •• I have used Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and found it to be of great benefit to me. The doctors said I had womb trouble. I had the headache all the time, also a terrible backache, was nervous, cross and irritable. I looked so pale that people would ask me what was the matter. I suffered in this way for about four years,until one day about in despair my husband brought me a bottle of Lydja E. Pxnkham s Vegetable Compound. I commenced its use, and much to every one s surprise it cured me. It has completely changed my disposition for the better also. Several of my neighbors, knowing what the Pinkham medicine has done for me, are taking it, and are much pleased with the result.' having the characteristics of coaling ana a new check tweed with an excellent vicnnalike surface and obtainable in Tarions colors. Elaborate trimmings of braid form the basis of some of the smart cloth suits. Skirts are moderate and conservative in style. Gowns for home wear are trimmed elaborately, and evening gowns are decidedly gorgeons. The new Russian coat leads, with all sorts of blouse bodices following. Furs of all kinds are to be largely employed in the trimming of woolen dresses. Apple I>essert. Peel some apples and put them in a jar with sugar to sweeten and a few drops of water and lemon or cloves to flavor the apples slightly. Put the jar, closely covered, in a saucepan of boiling water. Cook till tender, when beat to a pulp. Have ready some nicely sweetened custard and gradually stir it into the fruit pulp, beating them together until thoroughly amalgamated and creamy. Serve in custard glasses. This is a nice sweet dish for children served ^vith rusks, biscuits, etc., instead of pies or tarts. Cream or new milk can be used instead of the custard. United States Canadian and English Patents Promptly Obtained. Patent, and Perspective Drawings Prepared, Inventions Developed, Machinery Designed. B. B. Gordon, Solicitor of Patents, Spry Block: "TOILET PERFUMES." What Fastidious 'Women Use—How Va- / rloiw Scents Affect the Nerves. The fashionable belle uses some fine perfume, but not on her dress and handkerchief. Her arms, neck and face are bathed in scented water or rosewater and benzoin are dropped in the basin of , Crater. Then sho dusts her skin flon," a Drass key into "Something tc Adore,'' an olire and a spool of twist into '-Oliver Twist;'' a coffee mill on a skein of floss, "Mill on the Floss," and so on, according to the tact and inge- Vuity of the hostess. with some soft poudre de riz delicately perfumed. Into her bath violet, rose or lavender toilet water is dropped. The toilet bags, filled with almond meal, violet orris and finely cut castile soap, are an inexpensive luxury, and when placed in a tub of warm water give forth a charming frasrauce, aside from delicately perfuming and beautifying the skin. Many persons prefer the use of sachet powder to liquid perfumes. The most effectual way to use the powder is to make puds of cheesecloth or thin silk exactly the size of one's bureau drawers, line thorn with sheet wadding freely sprinkled with either violet, heliotrope, rose—or, in fact, whatever odor one prefers—and tack the wadding down as if quilting. The wearing .of sachet bags in tbe dress has long since been given up by the women of lebeau monde. Some fastidious women sprinkle rose leaves and lavender among their linen or cambric wearing apparel, reserving the dainty extracts for high toilet or evening use. Even then they aro used but sparingly. The eyebrows" lobes of the ears and the few stray hairs that will fall at the back of the neck are all gently touched with one's favorite perfume, or perhaps the hair is lightly sprayed all over with some sweet floral perfume or toilet water. As a rule refined women prefer violet, white lilac, heliotrope or rose perfumes, objecting to the Heavier scents on account of their unpleasant effects on the delicate olfactory nerves. Some very clever scientist recently announced that different perfumes have corresponding effects on the nerves. For instance, the artificial or chemical preparations mado from the orange blossom, tuberose, lily of the valley or jasmine, "if used 'to any extent, it is claimed, would lower the action of the heart and are distinctly depressing. Attar of rose or white rose perfume produces a contrary effect. Violet and heliotrope perfumes have a quieting influence on tho nerves : as has also mnsk, which latter, however, is seldom or never used by refined women. It is also claimed that sweet odors are as essential to tho human body and mind as is food and drink. A few drops of eau de co- Neck Garniture.

Represented In Imported Gown«. Bed, maroon and blue are favorite colors just now, represented, by the bye, in several shades. Among reds are a "flame" red and a red known as "dragon's blood." The shade called "tile blue" is the blue of the willow pattern plats. Grays are fashionable, and thera are many shades of yellow, ranging from the daffodil to a deep old gold. Coming to dress materials, there is a comprehensive collection, ranging from ' the plainest to the most elaborate, including the simple cloth, the various plaids upon which fashion smiles and the fanciful stripes in silk and woolen poplins. Most excellent is a new fancy hopsack, known as the "trinidad," of thick canvaslike texture. This is of wool, closely interwoven into small checks of three dark, harmonious shades. It forms an imported costnina seen with a simple skirt and a tight uiiu.

The following hints from the German are commended in The Etude: An excellent practice for musical intelligence and memory is to learn a composition or part of it, even if only a few measures, by heart from the notes only, without the use of any instrument whatever. This is on the principle of intuitive instruction — first fastening the lesson in the mind's eye and then passing it on to memory. It is desirable that the pupil learn to play as soon as possible without constantly keeping the eyes upon the keyboard," not only because the continued nodding of the head is a rather ludicrous movement, -which reminds one of the Chinese automatons displayed in teashops, but also because it is a hindrance to rapid sight reading.

If the oven doesn't bake well on the bottom, clean the soot out from underneath. Very beautiful are vases, flagons and jugs, in Eookwood pottery enriched with silver deposit. For patrons of luxurious tastes and plethoric pocketbooks are openwork bowls of silver for holding sponges. If white matting is soiled and a bad color, wash it over evenly with a weak solution of soda. This will give it a pale, creamy tint. It is said that a strong solution of carbolic acid and water poured upon ant holes will kill all the ants it touches. The survivors disappear and do not return. A piece of narrow webbing, such as is used, for holding furniture springs in place, sewed upon the under edge of rugs will prevent the corners from curling. For binding up cuts and wounds always use linen, not cotton, as the fibers of cotton are flat and apt to irritate a sore place, while those of linen are per fectly rounded.
