They are made from violets or very hiffhly perfumed roses or carnation pinks. Take half a pounc of loaf sugar and moisten with rose water; melt the sugar slowly until it reaches the boiling 1 point; have your violet, or rose, or carnation peta ready, and stir them quickly in the liquid, then pour the wliole into shal low dishes or pans. Mrs. kanptry says she still keeps up her devotion to hot baths. She- attributes her preservation of her complexion to the habit. She bailies as much in hot water as a Japanese. She .says the proper temperature is as hot as you can boar it, whatever that may be, and that the delight of the sensation and the good results of the bath depend on having it just that hut. A New York woman brniiffht home •from liiiropo on her last return voyage two or three of the little low-high- backed chairs that are used in the cathedrals, 81)0 hail them upholstered and turned into prie-ilioir\ for private oratorys, keeping one herself and giv ing others to friends. This started -a fashion, and now one of the leadin fancy dealers is importing these plain little chairs and making not only "praying desk's" of them, but upholstering them handsomely for bedroom chairs. f •'• Mrs. Fnjclcriok \V. Vamlorbilt has a fancy of her own in note paper. It is a sort of cross between th« old correspondence card and ordinary sheet. It issosrmtll that it is put in the rathor big square envelope unfolded, arid on some of the paper, such as is dedicated to very intimate correspondence, the upper left, hand urfrnur is decorated with her Christian name, "Lulu," in gilt script. All lu:r stationery is French gray or pale gray blue. The woman with a taste for dress; says: "I'.runettes are always mistaking their color. The prejudice in favor of clothing them all in red hasspoiled lots of pretty women. Ued does-suit/somo brunettes, usually the clear pale ones, but yellow suits a great many more, unit pule blue is often charming for them. The fact is people ii.ro far too much influenced by the names of colors. No iiiiinc tells exactly what a color is, and the subtleties that can't bo put into words are exactly what makes the difference in actuality. Women who dress well, or the grout professional artists iu dress, go by nothing- but the actual trial of color and complex ion together. It is the- same way about putting colors together. The woman is lost who has little rules about blue and pink going together, or green and violet notr going together; everything depends on shades. You've got to put tJieoi tog-ether and see, and then ii' you can't see, if you have no eye for color, get some one to see for you. A great deal can bo learned by -noting what nature docs. Shu puts green and llamo color together i.n nasturtiums, but sue what » delicate gray green!" Ella Wheeler Wilcos is having her petticoats made on n peculiar; pattern invented by herself, or, as she says, by fc -hcr husband find herself together. She lilotes on' white petticoats and so does ho (for her; it is not meant that ho wears them himself), but she concluded that she paid for a great deal of unnecessary Inundrying. So the new garment is made in two pieces, a top, and a deep flounce that buttons onto it. The .flounce can be changed as many times as you like and buttoned on to the top piece. Mrs. Gov. Morton, the "first lady" of Js'ew York state, has great talent in dressing, ami it is a sign of it that she has recently taken to wearing princess of Wales collars with her full dress toilettes. She is still a handsomo •woman, iier complexion fresh beneath her silver-gray hair, but her throat is no longer the throat, of a girl, and she has no need of unduly impressing the public with this fact. The princess of Wales invented this deep, close-fitting necklace to hide a scar on her neck, Vut it is useful for softening various defects. A southern woman, new in the north, talking to a New York man, happened to say that she thought the prettiest women were usually the most amiable, that social In/lies usually had the sweetest manners sis well as the prettiest faces. "That's s^> in the south," said the man. "but it is not so with us. In New York I could tell a handsome 1 woman iu the dark by the arrogance of her manner; just in proportion to her pood looks is her uppishness, 'and I • will say for her that she generally has a just," well-founded estimate of how g-ood looking she is." This is in perfect accord with what Paul liourget s»ys of the "chaste depravity" of tho ^fashionable American girls he met. He Roxind their knowledge of their own points like a broker's knowledge of stocks and the market. Oil, not water, should be used when yon really want to clean your face. Learn a lesson from the actresses. U an actress tried to wash with soap and water her nightly make-up from her lace, she would have no skin to speak of left in a week, to_say nothing about a complexion. She "never makes any such mistake. She removes her makeup with oil, usually and preferably cocoa-oil And she iearns by experience to do the same thinff when she wuiits to get rid of the grime of travel. Oil cleans the skin more thoroughly than soap and water, as you can thoroughly demonstrate after a journey or any such soiling experience. If you don't mind the abuse of your skin for once, just wash your face after the old fashion as well as you cau; then cover it with oil und remove the oil with a soft cloth. One look at the cloth will prove that the soap und water did not get it clean. The state entomologist of Massachusetts has been making himself useful by looking up the ways of the carpet beetle. fie warns housekeepers that they had better be on the lookout for them as early as February. They are particularly fond of attacking red carpeting, are,, these aesthetic beetles. Paper under carpets prevents their attacking the under side, especially if the cracks of the floor have been saturated with benzine. An Ingenious woman has discovered that among furniture damasks and brocades can be discovered the cheapest handsome material ou the market for silk petticoats. They wear better than any of the goods shown for the purpose. Mmc. Lily Maubury, the leading lady of Mr. Ueerbohm Tree's newly imported English company, wears more rings ut once than any other actress h:is ever succeeded in doing. She has a goodly English hand that gives her an advantage in space over any American woman. Ellen Terry's visiting card is of a stylo peculiar to herself. It is as small as tho conventional gentleman's card and bears only the words ''Ellen Terry." A hostess who was entertaining Bdith Thomas for some weeks recently gave a dinner party at which the favors were original poems written by Miss Thomas to each guest. A New York woman was recently doing the sights In Chester, England, and ut Eaton hall, the duke of Westminster's place, the ciccron« showed noisome battle-flags captured at the battle of Bunker Hill, remarking in her tactful British way that as she "was a Ilamerican they would probably especially hintercst her;" she was equal to the occasion arid said: "I don't mind seeing them, for if you have the flags we have the hill!" Mrs. Eva Wilder Broadhcsid, known in literature us Eva Wilder McGlasson, and who is now enjoying a wedding trip on and about the Mediterranean, is said to bo the youngest, established maguzinist in the country. Mr. and Mrs. E. Ilaiina arc American photographers who are making a great success in London. Their specialty is photographing dancers instantaneously. Mrs. Ilunna is her husband's chief issistant, and he says she invents most of his best ideas. Mrs. Henry Abbey, wife of the great ixmnager, is a great mimic, and entertains her intimate friends with manifold imitations of the many famous people she meets. One of her great •acts" is to show 1'atli talking baby talk according to her I'avoriti; style of conversation iti the bosom of her 1'ain- 'ty- Blue stones, turquoise especially, are very much worn just now in London, incl the wave is beginning to strike New York.

Unless the filing-is quite out of "sifrht most of them prefer to have the best while filling' ised, and to then visit the dentist often 0 have it renewed as it wears away'. A ortuno awaits the person who will find white tilling- that does not wear 1 way. Artificial flowers were never in such igh feather, so to speak, as now. elaborate artistic creations from Japan tdorn most of the fastidious clrawmg- ooms, and well-dressed women un- bashedly wear artificial violets on the orsage o'r the eout or the muff, and all duds of blossoms adorn nil sorts o:' leadgear, Tho finest artificial-flower naicer in the occidental world (we- won't draw on a competition with the Japanese) is Miss Magrklge, who is not a manufacturer, but an artist. She mounted the birds and inseets at the New York Museum of Natural History, and did similar work for the Smithsonian institution at Washington. Her (lowers arc very durable, and so wonderfully natural that you • might pick them olT without discovering 1 they were artificial. She js in England now, but some astute women have been sending to her for bunches of violets, because, they say, that with her violets and a bottle of extract they can fool society for a whole season. She will even put in a few blossoms that arc withering— to increase the appearance of reality. Mrs. Rose Qawlhorne T-athrop sails this month for the West Indies, to visit her brother.

Doe» He Jfot tiet Too Mnch Fan »t Other PeopIti'H Expense? Down at the bottom there is a strong trace of the tramp in everybody. To strike work once in awhile and get off into the woods, with nothing to do but lax.e, loaf, fish and wear ratrged clothes, is ineffably sweet. Seen through the vista of this alluring experience, what drudgery and abject slavery docs the ordinary moil of life look like. But this mere vacation taste of the thing is only dilettante trifling, as compared with serious professional work. Why not come out and be a man like the genuine tramp; strike a brave blow for absolute freedom, und henceforth renounce forever the world and all its treadmill routine? Already have nearly forty-six thousand able-bodied men in the land taken this heroic stand; and, it is grateful to add, thus far been met by their countrymen with an annual provision for their support of over nine million dollars—nearly one-half the cost of our national army. The tramp has a stupendous historical background behind him to fill him with justifiable pride. Indeed, the transition from the nomadic to the agricultural and industrial life, is said by historians to have involved the severest struggle of readjustment humanity has ever been through. All the bondage of Egypt could not effect it in the case of the Hebrew Bedouins, who broke ont again into the free life of the desert. Magniliceat, equality, is it to witness the renewal of these great historical throes of the ages in the breast of the tramp of to-day when igmmiiniously called on to saw a little wood in pay for his breakfast. No! he is a nomad, with the blood of his ancestors in his veins, and scorns your industrial civilization. The love of travel is deep-rooted in the human breast. "Home-keeping youths have ever homely wits,' 1 says Shakspeare; to which Milton adds, for the encouragement of Adam and Eve, "the world was all before them where to choose." Delicately responsive to this high strain of poetry, the constant summons of the tramp to his son! is, "to-morrow for green fields and pastures new." Work would tether him to one dull spot, so work he indignantly refuses as the foe of all range of eye and imagination. Further, a dear lover of conversation is the professional tramp; an accom- fiidNG IS NOT HURT. PREDICTION FOR 1395 MATERIALIZE. WILL CoL W.

Many felt that the passage of the amendment prohibiting biting of any kind in the state of New York would destroy or ruin the turf of America. Especially was that the case with those \vno, presuming to represent the American turf, only represent one of its great metropolitan cities. The American people love sport and demand it clean and good, and the reasons and causes ih.it made the passage oil such an amendment possible in New York happily do not apply elsewhere.

That the outlook for the west is by far the brighter o£ the .two admits of no argument, even it' the k-glslature s no argument, even if the Legislature f the legislature aid of the New York tracks, but anyhow the present' state of alT.tirs only makes more necessary the formation of a "National Jockey Club," democratic in inanage- art iu America. Its cultivation de- ' rnands leisure of mind, a rich variety' oC topics, brisk interchange of jests i and stories, an intimate knowledge of , manners and customs. One soon talks I himself out to a few neighbors. In the j nightly bivouac of tramps, however, j what variety of social talent presents \ no a ,.jr umenl> even itself. Each has some interesting ad-I should como to the venture to narrate, with afresh audience to try it upon till it has been wrought to its finest point and polished to its highest luster. "Which do you consider your best sermon?" asked Louis XIV. to Massillon. "'Sire,'' was the answer, ''the one I have preached oi'tonost." In other words, a sermon, ment and principles, representing every' section and giving to America a uniform scale of weights and rules. The owners of the tracks, the breeders and owners of race horses and all like a coat, must be tried on a number t | )ose interested in tho promotion of .of times before it can be made to fit. This the trump understands of conversation quite as well as did Massillon of sermons, and to this ho owes at once his delight in its exercise as well as his perfection in the art. Altogether, the life proves as fascinating as Robert Harris has so gloriously pictured it in his poem. "The Jolly r>ggn.rs." | It is always well first to get into sympathetic touch with any class of human beings before undertaking to irunrovo them out o? existence. This j at least, acquaints the legislator u»ith the difficulties he has to deal with in trying to extirpate any especial breed of his fellow creatures. None the loss, racing should come together, prepared to give and lake a voice in the making of the laws and policy which is to further all interests. The public is the one essential factor in the success of the scheme, and the public Is democratic. The adoption of the uniform scale of weights and rules, the collection of forfeits and recognition of rulings for fraud are the points that must be settled immediately as the fundamental principles by which the American turf must be governed. Such action by the recognized racing clubs as represented by the turf congress in the west, jockey club tracks in j the-east and the section called the California slope, in agreeing upon the . , ... . . points thus embraced would make easy after all the gemal sympathies that ^, 3seque!U ,,,„,,„,..

Js'o successful method of catching- terrapin in large .'lumbers has yet been devised. A kind of set net is sometimes used, but with no remarkable success. The ffeiicnil statement holds that terrapin ;ire caught singly. At no season of the year do the fishermen, who make a side issue of terrapin, know exactly where to look for them. All their movements arc aimless, and tlu-ir only habit \vhich ran be depended on is that of burying themselves in the mud at the bottom of the water during the conlhiuance of cold weather. In a v?.£iic and general way this enables the catcher to locate them, says David Bruce Fitx.gcraid in Lippincott's Magazine, Accordingly, it is during the cold months that terrapin are taken aiost abundantly. Selecting some part of the bay where the water is shallow anjl_ which has a muddy bottom, the catcher, in his boat, moves slowly acrosa and across it, continually thrusting lib long po'e into the mud. \Vhe:i he chaTiccs thus to encounter a hibernating diamond back he seizes his prey with a pair of oyster tongs, or some similar appliance, a.nd lifts him gently into the boat. lie rarely finds ver\ - ir.ai'.v in a day. and he docs not need to Cud many in order to roako good wages. On occasions, few and years "between, a lucky fisherman will discover some particular favored spot where the mud is full of terrapin enjoying their winter's sleep. This is almost equal to finding a small gold mine. In the winter of 1S03 a poor ne- gro fisherman chanced upon such a nest of diamond backs near Tangier island; he took out twelve hundred dollars' worth in four hours, and then gave up only because lie was exhausted.
