All Blue Ware I» Not Delft—The Keal and the Imitation*. Anything with blue decorations is now "culled delft by tho uninitiated. Much of th a blue ware has merits and some is without a redeeming tVuture. Still the resale has been to fix blue ware indelibly iii the affections. Iso other is so cheap, so artistic, so great in variety, so universally adapted to common use. The Decorax>r and Furnisher, having stated that "all blue is not delft," gives the following information: Within reach of the slenderest purses are the various imitations of delft. English Spode and Wedgwood. Cauldon and Donltoo; German stoneware, in blue enamel on gray, very distinctive and decorative; an imitation of the Royal Copenhagen; Chinese, Japanese, Korean faience, Dresden and majolica. With all these, many of them as cheap as white seiniporcelain and a single bit of delft, and a dining room has a distinction that French china cannot confer, especially if the room be done in the new delft papers, with white woodwork—if not of oak or mahogany—and draperies of sheerest white. The real Holland delft now belongs on easels or in a cabinet. For use the German delft conies in a great variety of shapes at one-sixth the price. German delft clocks of exqufsite shape and decoration may be had for $12 or $25. A punch bowl that would be a- joy forever is as cheap. In the plaques and panels the work is almost as good, but is self betraying. The head of Mozart, for instance, would never occur to a Dutchman, beautiful as it is. while that of Rembrandt is part of his tradition. The loving cup with three or four bandies (six inches high, $10) is a self evident piece of work, as much as the German stoneware "schooners' 7 with drinking scenes and mottoes, so charming in their frank depicting of national life. The American imitation of delft made at Trenton is in reality an underglaze blue belleek and is not at all adapted to the same uses, though it has merits. A ware that catches the eye and makes the •uninitiated exclaim, "That's the kind of delft I like," is the magnificent cobalt blue ware of Douiton. It is completely satisfying. Such a depth and richness of color, sach ravishing shapes were never dreamed of by the most inspired potters of delft, whose inspiration was an oriental exotic. This Douiton is inspired by modern painting, by the high lights on the Rookwoods, to greater things in the blue of Spode. "The finest thing in cobalt that has ever been done. Ko blue ware excels it except the royal Copenhagen, and that is the acme of ceramic art,'' says an authority, and certainly there are samples of both these marvelous wares to make the lover of potrery rave. .; Tom Johnson Arrange* m Fair.

M'CLURE, THE MAGAZINE MAN, WON HIS WAY. Hii Laborious Boyhood on an Indiana Farm—ThroOEb College With a Bu<* Saw—Schoolteacher, Peddler, Bicycle Instructor—Syndicate Pioneer[Special Correspondence.] NEW YORK, Nov. 8.—This is the story of a plucky country boy's fight to vrin his way from the farm to a place of his own in the- great world. His name is jlcClcre. He was born in the north of Ireland 40 years ago. He -was baptized Samuel S., and he is now editor and publisher of the magazine that bears his name. If ever there was a life story the pernsal of which should encourage every ambitious young man, no matter how great the obstacles with which he has to contend, here it is. A circumstance of thai early period stands out bold and distinct in his memory. He was taken to a large town by an older member of bis family, and the s. s. M'CLTJRE. two put up at a hotel. A Catholic priest, who read a good deal from a Latin book, was a guest of the house at the same time. The Latin book had a strange fascination for the lad, and before he slept that night he made a solemn resolve that some day he, too, would learn to read in Latin. X.ife on the Farm. The McClure family removed to the United States when S. S. was 9 years old, settling on a farm in northern Indiana some 16 miles from Valparaiso. It was a good farm, but it had' to bo paid for, and the McClure boys, of whom S. S. was the oldest, had to help every summer in the fields. As a result he was able to enjoy not more than four or five months' schooling each year. But he thanked his stars for what he could get and buckled down harder to his work in the hope that sooner or later he would be able to realize his ambition with regard to learning Latin. He helped plant and harvest the corn. He held the plow handles day after day every spring and fall and could draw as long a"furrow between sun and sun as any man in the neighborhood. He did every sort of farm labor before he was 13, except the very heaviest, such as pitching hay and grain, for which, of course, he lacked the weight and muscle. But he "loaded" the hay, which is the- same as "trimming" cargo on shipboard, arid stacked the grain and straw, and thus practically filled the place of a man on the farm. This sort of life went on till he was 14, and then he determined that the time had arrived for a change. Education Begun. So, bidding adieu to the farm, he went to Valparaiso, where a new public school system was just being inaugurated. He arrived there quite a stranger, but after some inquiries found a place where he could "do chores for his board" and attend high school, having passed its examination without difficulty. He did not leave Valparaiso for good until he was nearly IS, but every summer he went out to earn money for his winter expenses. The summer he was 15 he taught school for §14 a month and boarded round. Another summer he worked in a grocery store. While in Valparaiso he spent a good deal of time around the office of the local paper, where ho learned to set type, to turn the crank of the printing press and to "lock up" a "form." Before he left the place he was "doing" local news items and occasional "editorials." When he was 17, his stepfather died, and he had to go back to the farm and help his brothers carry it on. He remained there only half a year, but it was a great six months for the farm, for, owing to good weather and the vigorous way in which it was worked, it that year yielded the biggest crops of oats and corn and hay.in its history. When fall came, he left the farm for the second time, his purpose being strong to continue his education, and went to Galesbnrg, Ills., the seat of Knox college, 200 miles from his home. When he reached Galesbnrg, young McClure had only 15 cents in his pocket, and he knew not a soul in the whole town. His plans for the future were es- tremely misty as to detail, but there was one idea strongly dominant in his mind. "I knew," he said the other day, "that Galesbnrg was situated in tie midst of one of the most fertile co'on- ties in the United States. I knew that no one would be allowed to starve when surrounded by such plenty, and I knew that if I did not starve I should surely succeed in getting through collega " College Life. It was young ilcClnrs's intention to •work for his board while attending college, as he had at Valparaiso, but it •was a- full month before he was able to find a home. In the meantime, having passed the examinations and" been enrolled as a student, be occupied an nn- Ttaed, unfurnished room in one of the dormitories. He made an -'empty box •err® as a chair, but he cannot now re- " Our'SHoes Fit Like gloves And they wear Like Iron. We treat our customers Fair and square Because we appreciate Their trade.

He lived on bread, crackers and grapes at an expense of not more than 50 cents a week, which he earned by sawing wood with a buck saw. "I lost a good deal of time hunting for wood to saw and other work to do, " said Mr. McClnre in telling the story, "and so when I became a trustee of the college some years ago I inaugurated a plan by which townsfolk who have work that students can do to give out p are registered and classified. Students at Knox college do not now have to waste time looking for odd jobs, and any student who is willing to do a little wholesome work can get through easily on $500 for the entire course." Before the second month .was over he had found a place where he could work for his board. At the end of the college year he had paid all his own expenses and had $6 to the good. The year he was 18 he worked all summer on a farm at |20 a month. He was offered $25 monthly if he would work eight months, but he declined this dazzling proposition, as it would interfere with his college work. Oue summer he peddled needles and pins and tape. Another summer, after having mastered shorthand, ho taught that mystery to whoever desired to learn it. Owing to some dissensions in the board, he served as editor of the college paper, The Knox Student, during his last year at Galesburg. No one thought he could edit it, but his selection healed the quarrel, and to everybody's surprise he got out a very creditable little journal. He also acted as publisher, and in that capacity he secured advertisements and looked after the printing and the general expenses. While conducting The Kuox Student he got up a history of western college journalism, which was much and favorably commented upon in western colleges generally. S. S. McClure had no definite plans for the future wheu his college life was ended. Some of his classmates were going to study law, some intended entering journalism, others meant to teach and other to go into business. "What are you going to do, Sara?' 1 asked a friend one day. "I—why, I am going to Boston," he replied at random, not knowing what else to say. And so it fell out that in June, 1882, when he was 25 years old, S. S. McClure stepped off a train in the Boston and Albany depot one pleasant, sunshiny morning. He had no personal acquaintances in the town and his purse •was light. After several days' hard and unsuccessful search for a job, he noticed the uame of a famous bicycle maker on a window and concluded to seek a place there. After a little parley with a clerk he succeeded in seeiag the president of the company. He told this man that as publisher of a college paper in Galesburg he had printe-d some advertisements of the company's bicycles.

He was perfectly willing to do anything that was offered. The bicycle maker said that help was plenty and places scarce. Still he seemed impressed. '' Would you wash windows and sweep floors?" he asked. The young man said he would -willingly and was told to sit in the office for awhile. This was on July 3, arid McClure was told to wait on the supposition that rnore help might be needed than usual on the 4.th at the bicycle rink controlled by the company. Late in the afternoon he was informed that he might work next day and that his pay would be $1. His duties would be to teach greenhorns how to ride the wheel. Now, McClure had never bestrid a bicycle in his life, and it was necessary that he should learn before the next morning. He-was so ansious to work that this seemed an easy task. Indeed had any one asked him that afternoon whether he could navigate a transatlantic steamer he would have said yes, and tried it. He might have succeeded too. At all events, he fell off the wheel but once, and in less than ten minutes was sailing round and round the rink as though he were a veteran wheelman. Next day when he went to work he was a veteran. Syndicate and Magazine. The job was to last only one day, but McClure stuck to it for weeks with a tenacity born of desperaton. When there was no one to teach how to ride the wheel, he washed windows and swept floors. After awhile his employer, who often stopped to talk -with him, suggested that he should edit a monthly periodical, to be called The Wheelman. McClure undertook this task and performed it creditably for some time, but at the end of a year and sis months in Boston —in December, 1882—decided to come to New York. Here he got work in a big printing house, where he had to look after proofs and attend to kindred duties. But he could see n< future in that place. So, sifter four or five months, be found a minor situation on the business staff of The Century Magazine writing circulars, advertisements, etc. Progress was slow there, too, and feeling that it would always remain so for him, he determined to start a syndicate for the furnishing of fiction and other general matter to newspapers. He got this notion from Mr. Dana of The Sun, who had purchased serial stories from Henry James, Bret Harte, W. D. Howells, etc., and sold them for simultaneous publication in several papers. This was in the fall of 1884, 13 years ago, and ever since that time the name of S. S. McClure has been familiar, alike to authors and publishers, as a dealer in literary wares. He had no capital at the beginning, and the money | question was often a most serious prob- | lem with him. But he stuck to the line j he had marked out, -worked early" and late, systematized his duties, economized his minutes and won. the fight. Four years ago, in 1893, he started his magazine. Today he is on the highroad to really phenomenal euccesa. DEXTER Reasonable Prices. The most Reasonable Tailor in town is Craig.
