Since the regiment was raised in the rei^n of (.lie second Charles the dragoons have borne themselves tvcll in many u famous field, but want of space forbids us to note the exploits until "earth-shaking" Waterloo came on the glory roll of the gal hint greys. Here, with tho English "Hoyals" and Irish "Inniskillings," they formed the famous "Union brigade," which formed tho ncver-to-bc-forgotten picture of the "Fight for tho Standard." That widely- known picture shows a man of tho greys, Stergt, Ewart, cnpturing tho eagle of a very famous French corps, tho "forty-fifth of tho line." Sergt. Ewart himself has told tho story in * letter to his father. HEAT OF THE HAND. An Instrument Which Accurately Indl- ciito Itft Intensity. An illustration of the marvelous accuracy characterizing tools or instruments of measurement now employed as compared with those of former times is given, namely, that, whereas former- ly"ooi inch marked on a drawing' would have been objected to on the ground that it was difficult or impossible to work- so closely to measures as that, at tho present time .0005 inch is measured in every fine workshop, and dimensions given 'in hundredth.-! or even thousandths of an inch frequently appear on drawings without objection on the part of the workmen. The instruments of measurement arc now made with such a degree of refined accuracy that even the warmth of the hand may expand a rod 12 inches long so that the amount of expansion can be measured. It has thus become important in fine measurements to be careful that the temperature of. the piece to be measured or gauged should have the same temperature as that of the instrument by which the size is determined. By first handling a rod of tho length named and measuring it, particularly if the rod be of brass or copper, and then, after allowing the rod to cool, handling tho gauge until the latter expands, it is found that a discrepancy of from 0.007 inch to 0.01 inch may be sometimes made apparent, due entirely to differences of temperature. Tlio Venci-atice of Nature. The Boston Transcript says that of the one hundred and forty-six inhabitants of the little town of Chilrnark; on the island of Martha's Vineyard, thirty-six, or almost exactly one- quarter, are congenitally deaf and dumb. The town records show that two of the original settlers of the place, away back in the seventeenth century, were deaf and dumb, and the infirmity has thus been transmitted to our own day. This hereditary influence shows no plai. of uniformity in its workings, deaf nnd dumb parents having children in full possession of all their senses, and vice versa. This peculiar community, shut in from the outside world, is, however, alive to all the social and political influences of the time, and does not differ in great degree from the thousand and oac_se- cluded villages which dot our New England hills and shore line. It affords, however, ample opportunity for 'the minute investigation of both the sociologist and tho student of evolution »nd physiological heredity. A Xew Yorker with a strange fancy for towels has made their collection a fad, and he has gathered from all parts of the world an unparalleled assortment of them. Benjamin R. Davenport, a lawyer, better known as a publisher of several books, is the possessor of, this unique collection, and he proudly displays his store of the towels of all nations, numbering 1,813. THIS MAY BE SPORT. Moantnineorlnjr »» "»• "OoW«n Throne" vt tlio Illin»l:iyiiu. . Mr. William Martin Con way, the . Tico president of the Alpine club, do- licribcd before an .Edinburgh audience !tbo other evening how lie and twc .friends, with a Swiss guide and soma : Sepoys, ascended the "Golden Tlironc r Ipeokintho Himalayas. They did nol 'quite conquer tlio throne, but ascended 'to the respectable height of twenty- three thousand feet. Tlio difficulties In their way ho illustrated by mention- '{ng that they spent nine and a luali hours in cutting steps in hard blue ice on the edge of a ridge exposed to the 'fnll blaze of the sun, and in an atmosphere BO rarefied that they were rendered slclt and dizzy. The party were rewarded, however, for their toil by eomo magnificent views of the surrounding peaks in the light of the setting sun. When thoy sot off on the return journey darkness had set in, and tho perils of the journey wore thereby prcatly Increased. They finally irenched a slope of ice, on which there '•was nothing left for it but to sit clown .nnd fly forward into tho darkness at ^headlong speed. Right in front of them they knew there yawned a 'crevasse more than a thousand feet deep, and tho only way to cross this •was to slide down tho slope with enough impetus to carry them over the edge on to the other side. Their sensa- ition, Mr. Con way said, aa they sudden- ily loft the solid ice and found they had ^nothing to sit upon but space was ox- ihilarating In tho extrcmo. Fortunately they landed safely on • other side, nnd continued their dent, literally keeping up tho momentum they had gained until they were carried within three or four yards of their tent. _ SEA GULLS FAR INLAND, . They Don't Soem to AllnU FlylnK Fi" 1 . Aw»y from Their Salt iVftter Ilonu). There seems to bo no limit to tho inland nights of tho gull, said an obser- Tant sportsman just back from the Bocky mountains. I have seen these proftd-winged sailers of the -air darting about tlio forest-environed lakes of northern Maine, and winding their way lip tho canyons of mountain streams iu 'desert Arizona five hundred miles from the Gulf of California, the nearest salt water. Sometimes several pulls may ; oe seen far inland journeying in company, but often only a single ono ii . found traveling: apparently on his own •hook. Walking about tho ranche of a friend near Las Vegas, N. M., last untnmn, I wns astonished to sec a gull, ouo of whose wings had been . clipped so that it could uot fly, hopping ^ahout on the ground auiong his poultry, '•with which the sea bird seemed to be Jon tho most amicable terms. My 'host •'• ihad wounded the srull in the wing . iwhile duck-shooting on a prairie lake 'In northern New Mexico. What desire .'

The Now Dress Goods Are Said to Be Fascinating. Jfot Onlr Arc the Material* Charmlns. But the New Colom Am Simply ICxquI- • Itc—Skirts Still Grow iu Width —Some Frrtty ColfTurnt. [Special Chicago Letter.! The vrind blows -and the snow swirls, and as yet there is no suggestion of the balmy brtaih of springtime save iu the shop windows where airy muslins, cool-look in tf dimities and gnyb'-colc-rec. silks, fliinnt their bright hues, undaunted hi.-thu blc-ak weather without. These new goods are mori.- beautiful and tcmptiiig'than ever before, and arc fast being purchased by the prudent shopper, who knows that the choice patterns are soon picked up. After seeing the lovely cotton fabrics brought out this .season one is almost SOMETinNQ NEW I s TEA SOWSS. tempted to wear nothing but cotton gowns. Fine French ginghams that make charming morning dresses coma in -the sprigged and striped designs seen last season, while the crooked effects find new life in the lovely cotton crepes, sheer and fine, yet with, a gloss like finest silk. White organdie muslins of web-like texture, soft enough to be drawn through a ring, with tiny-colored stripes running through them, delicately-tinted grounds strewn with primroses, daisies and violets, and tbq soft, blurred effects are among the prettiest designs. These organdies call for a silken lining, and yards upon yards of ribbon and lace for garniture, and make quite as expensive a frock aa my iady of fashion czia desire. This season's challies and wool de- laines are .of the most exquisite patterns and shaded so as to almost resemble the finest painting. The grounds arc mostly darker else delicately tinted, showing 1 pretty floral designs. A lovely one had a cream-tinted" ground powdered with violets, while a rich dark green one was thickly strewn with great pink roses set in leaves of deepest green. Silk crepon makes an idjp.1 gowning, and this season's importations show for the first time the eyclcttcd or perforated work— a novelty that took all Paris by storm and bids fair to sweep everything before it in this country*. It comes in black and in all the fashionable coloring's. Sometimes the perforations are done in a wide stripe alternating' with a narrow oue of satin, but the all-over work is more chic and Frciiehy looking. _ Taffetas will remain the favorite silfc for spring and summer wear. They are imported in changeable colors with moire grounds, and the designs are almost exclusively floral, with a tendency toward larger flowers, roses especially being used. Some designs straggle all over the background in a tangle of posies and leaves with abnormally long stems. The changeable silks in plain colors will continue popular during the next season and those offered in the shops just now are a safe purchase, especially in green, brown and bluet. Fin de aiecle is one of the new spring shades, and the interpretation of this coloring evidently means that the cen- tbe way of weaving. They are in waves across the material from selvage to selvage, the waves being attached to a background of loosely woven squares. A thin and very effective material is tius obtained. Tea gowns are eter an enthralling subject to me, and I confess I never see a pretty one but my deepest envy is' aroused, and can only be appeased by. the promise of one in the near future.' Of course, there are'tea gowns and tea gowns, but the kind I moan arc the lovery silken cues that han# iu rich folds from'neck to hem, and the lace-trimmed cloth ones that fairly shout their l-'roncb origin. The picture represents tho latest | model. The jacket is made of coral ' pink cashmere cloth over an umlci- drcss of the fnme. The front of the bodice is covered with point, de Venice lace, through which shows r.n inner lining of Nile green satin, while a satin belt encircles "the waist, and around the neck is a monster ruche of pink chiffon over a wide band of fvreon satin. 1 might mention, in passing, that no dress is complete without its niche, and it is very curious to notice in t:ie streets to-day how unfinished and bare look the throats of women who wear neither boa nor ruche. We get quickly .cciistomed to a now fashion and wonder how we ever smile's on any other. The new skirt that is sent to us from over the wilier is best described by the vord "immense." It is cut to fit smooth over the hips, set out full from the knees and measures from six to eight yards at the bottom. For evening wear .here is no inner lining save that of tarlatan placed between the material and silken foundation, but for street wear stiff lining is used to such an extent that the wearer of the skirt a la mode will certainly find the burden of this latest of lashion's follies extremely icavy to bear. Yet the full skirt is pretty and stylish when worn by a graceful woman. It does something 'owaird striking a balance of propor- iion with the enormous ruffles around the neck and the monstrous sleeves which encircle every'arm. The latest freak of fashionable etiquette is black satin knickerbockers lined with silk or flannel. They are rather nice in their way, drawn in at the knee and plaited in full at the waist. They are to wear with the new skirt I have just described aod it is claimed for them that the skirt fits nicer over them than it does over the conventional petticoat. The notion of knickerbockers pleases me not and never will. I prefer the soft frou-frou of the pretty satin and silken petticoat. Fashions change in slippers as in everything else, and those brought out for 1895 are enough to bankrupt the NOVELTIES IS .SLIPPERS. tury shall expire in a glow of soft rose color. This lovely shade harmonizes most admirably with black, the intermingling of the two being an extremely effective combination. There is a new green which is neither sage, Kile or Chartreuse, but seems to have a cast of each one in its composition, so exquisitely blended that 1 it is a dream of sea foam, verdant prairies and richly tinted liquor all mixed into one. . • Heliotrope will be nracu worn tne coming season. It is one of the most suitable colors for spring fabrics, as in it are reproduced the hues of the spring flowers, the .violet, the lilac, the heliotrope and the. soft purple tints of the iris. , '•" ., Silk and wool mixtures Una wool cre- Ipons come in all the shades of this charming color.

For house wear the pretty strapped slipper of finest kid is worn, but with evening dress nothing but the dainty satin slipper match- m« the gown in color is seen. Some arc severely plaiu, with the exception of a hu;je rosette of chiffon, while others are gayly embroidered and fastened with one or more paste buckles. While the hairdressing of to-day can not be called extremely elaborate, yet the professional hairdresser was never iii greater demand than at the present time. Each lock seems «to require a particular twist and turn to bring out its beauty, and only at hands of an expert can" achieve a result that is satisfactory. They who have regarded the '•not-too-low-not-too-high" Psyche knol of past seasons with horror will be glad to learn that so far as Paris is concerned this trying style is _entirely "out." The wave coiffure, similar to the present style, finds much favor both in London and Paris. Being interpreted this means that the hair is waved and taken back into a loose knot midway between the neck and 'crown. For evening wear something more elaborate is required. The pic •tare illustrates the latest in this direction. . KATE CARONEB. Mtirrix^e Statistics.

WHISTLER AND THE MILLIONAIRE Julit Whut Renlly Occurred Cpon n Celebrated .l»«ea"lon- Hero is a, true version of an oft-told story of Whibtlor, the distortion bear; only a faint racial likeness to the original: A man from nowhere made a large fortune in London and at onco proceeded to indulge a genuine, if somewhat crass, love of art. He sent agents the length and breadth of Europe to purchase the highest-priced pictures to had; old masters, if possible; if not, copies by first-class artists, if they could be sot to do the work. Modern nrtists were patronized in tlic original; in fact, be set up a pi-irate Luxembourg- crossed with a spurious Louvre. The home he built him was magnificent. No roan in London with leanings toward -art had such a house. Everybody, or nearly everybody, who was invited wont to see it, to remain, to feast, even to g-azcupon the millionaire at his easel, brush in hand, the robes of Japan or of Greece flowinff about him. But one crumpled roseleaf had the millionaire. Whistler would not RO to his home. Millais, Tadema, Sargent and a hundred lights, only a trifle or so less distinguished, had graced his board, but Whistler could not be got through the front door. When he saw the millionaire coming he whisked around the corner; his notes of invite-; tion of adulation, he did not condescend to open; he turned a deaf ear to importunities of mutual friends. ; The art millionaire was in despair.' His wine turned to gall, his palette grinned at him, his sleep was infect«d with nightmare, which wore the disdainful smirk of Whistler. Even tho famous white lock seemed to assume an air of lofty unattainableness. I short, he was miserable, for until Whistler, the exigeant, the eccentric, the impossible, set the cachet of his approval, the art millionaire's position in the world of art was open to dispute. One day Whistler abruptly sent him word that he would call upon him the next morning at ten o'clock. What actuated the great man will never be known. The simplest explanation, is that it was one of his many freaks. The art millionaire, fairly palpitat- in"- with jov, received Whistler at the entrance of'his palatial home, effusive with -welcome. .Whistler bowed gravely. He uttered never a word. The millionaire offered his arm. Whistler took it impassively and permitted bun- self to be conducted over the house. | He walked through rooms filled with the treasures of Japan, of India, of Turkey; rooms hung with priceless tapestries, inlaid with rare porcelains; rooms representing apartments in ancient Greece, Kome^Pompeii. He stared with fixed eyes and said never a word- A dining-room taken from ft feudal castje. » hall arched lite Cleonatra'i bedrooms, whose silk' n hangings could hare gone through the eye of a ncedJo —never a word. The host, much perturbed, but will- 'ing to make all allowances for tho eccentricities' of genius, finally fliiug aside the portieres of a great studio. In i< were such couches and stuffs and curios as artists dream of. Tlio easels were solid rosewood. Two-guttica-an- hour models awaited the leisure of tho millionaire. Never a word. Whistler pcrmittcd-his stony stare to roam from one object to another, then swung his host about, led him through the portieres, and made for the entrance. As. they descended the grand stab-case thc'millionaire burst forth: "Great heavens, Mr. Whistler! Ami you going to say anything?"' Whistler turned abruptly and regarded him for a moment with a solemn stare. Then he brought his hand heavily down on the millionaire's baclt and exclaimed hoarsely: "It'samazing!
