Shocking Case Unearthed by a Pennsylvania Humane Agent. Pittsburg, Dec. S. — Humane Agent O'Brien has just unearthed one of the most shocking- cases of maltreatment of j the insane ever recorded in western Pennsylvania, at dime's Holiow, Westmoreland county. After a careful investigation the officer has ascertained that Franklin Pearse Cline, now 43 years old, has been chained for the past eleven years to an iron bar with a chain which will not permit him to move in any direction more than six or eight feet. He is a raving maniac, and during his long period of incarceration he has been kept constantly in a state of nudity. Agent O'Brien says Cline was kept in a small out-house constructed especially for him. When he called to see him the room was In a filthy condition, and there was not a vestige of anything for the sufferer to lay upon. The state board of lunacy has been notified and is now investigating the case. It is thought that the Westmoreland county authorities will be asked to take charge of the man as the estate is amply able to pay all necessary expenses. One Embezzler Our of Jail. Lincoln.

Styli*U Blouses—Tailor Suits of Broadcloth—Olive Harper's Fasnion Gowip and Hints to the Fair Sei[Special Correspondence.] NEW YORK, • Dec. 6.—I must admit that I was a false prophet when I said that I did not believe that the moire velours would prove popular, for it is so well liked in itself that there are two or three other new fabrics so near like it that one might class them all in one family, and they are all popular. The moire velours in black, dark solid colors RIGHTS OF LABOR. Judr« Cmldw«ll. Di»»ent» From m Federal Court Decision. Everywhere and in every shape social questions are under consideration—in the pulpit, in the press, in the courtroom even. The dissent of Hon. Henry C. Caldwell, circuit judge of the United States and member of the circuit court of appeals at St Lonis, from the decisions of his colleagues on the bench is a proof that all federal judges are not slaves of monopoly and distrustful of the people. Although his dissent does not detract from the efficiency of the adverse judgment, it prefers a strong nlea against the argument of the majority of the court, and though he may stand alone among his official brethren of the federal tribunals the time may come when his opinions may be upheld by the majority of them. In stating his disagreement with a decision denouncing "boycotting" Judge Caldwell says: \ "Whether organized laboi-has .just ! grounds to declare a strike or boycott is j not a judicial question.

The renaissance moire is in some respects a handsomer material than the plain ve- lours. While the velours has the heavier cord the wave or moire markings are more deeply and brilliantly defined, and are in some way made to take a shade very much darker than the foundation. Some of them have a satin brocade design trailing over the moire lines in lighter or darker shade than the ground. The effect is very beautiful, particularly in the cameo weave. One of these fabrics intended for ceremonious -wear had the groundwork of a pale sulphur yellow, -with the wave marks and brocaded design in a delicate cream tint. Another bad a design of dark blood red on pale pink. There is a new satin offered in all colors—that is .to say, the satin is always two toned and has an overthrow of coin spots. Where black and green threads are interwoven the spots will be of the green only, and they show up admirably. There is quite a fad for dark, when not black, gowns for handsome evening wear for quite young women. Black satin ducbesse is made with a plain seven gore skirt, with a draped belt of the same and a gathered waist. The sleeves are wrinkled above the elbows and coat shaped below, with full white crepe lissa ruffles. There was an immense cape collar of duchess lace, with a jetted square yoke and a white satin stock with lisse ruffles. A more girlish but no handsomer gown was one of dark navy blue velours, with a moire outline of lighter shade. The bodice -was low in the neck and fulled to a sash belt, made of rich black gros- graiu ribbon, edged with a black silk mull ruffle and a narrow line of line jot trimming. This was also put around the bottom of the skirt and above every earn. Around the top of the neck was twist of pale pink crepe lisse. There is much in favor of these dark gowns. They look rich, and they are very striking, while very becoming. Still, they huve not displaced the ;anzes, nets, silk mulls and chiffons, jesides the host of other transparent ! abrics. Blouses for home wear are of two jtyles, one the ultra Eussian, with the peplnm or skirt portion more or less ong and pronounced. There are many very stylish blouses made of plaid pop- Yokes, garibaldi straps and gathers as-well as plaits Eire all permissible, only so that the pouch front is always mainlined. Long waists are desirable now, and so there are fewer belted waists. The others have the linings stiffened and carried far down in front and the belt set along the edge. Plaid poplin Dlonses are qnite popular for wearing with the dark skirts of cheviot, homespun or some other of the roughish staffs for ordinary requirements. Tan broadcloth and mode and biscuit and a delicate soft French gray make the most beautiful of tailor suits. These are two-thirds blouse waists and the other third the conventional tight waist. Some of these have the Eussian coat legitimate weapons, and so long as in their use there is no force or threats of violence or trespass upon person or property their use cannot be restrained. And in the case of a strike or boycott, so long as each side is orderly and peaceful, they must be permitted to terminate their struggle in their own way, without extending to one party the adventitious aid of an injunction." He says of the trusts and the combinations of capital: "The struggle is constant between the laborers whose labor produces the dividends and those who enjoy them. The manager is tempted to reduce •wages to increase dividends, and the laborers resist the reduction and demand living wages. Sometimes the struggle reaches the point of open rupture. When it does, the only weapon of defense the laborers can appeal to is the strike or boycott, or both. These weapons they have an undoubted right to use so long as they use thsm in peaceable and orderly manner. This is the only lawful limitation upon, their use. That limitation is fundamental and must be observed.''—New York News. *"' THE COMPLEXION. How to Have a Clear Skin and Handnom* Lips. Very often little pimples and tiny boils will come on the lips and turn to rather unpleasant looking sores. These spots arise from feverishness, which is caused by the state of the digestive system. II this is out of order, spots are certain to break out somewhere, and the lips are very often chosen for them to appear on. " You should at ouco put yourself on a very strict diet. Avoid meat, rich dishes, pastry, new bread, cake, wine, spirits and sugar. Live on plain, dull, unsweetened food and eat fruit and vegetables iu preference to almost anything else, and you will soon be well." The lips themselves can be touched with a little powdered alum, and they will soon be well. When your lips are very heavy and thick, you can sometimes reduce the size a little by rubbing them with tannin, but if you feel any pain or discomfort from this leave it off at once. Ic is far better to have large lips than to have them look unsightly. When your lips are very much chapped in winter time, or in high east winds, you should rub them well with boroglyceriu. In cold weather be very careful that your veil is not damp over your mouth,"and constantly dry ii; wish your handkerchief. An excellent salve to use when the lips are chapped is to put into a clean pot on the fire a dram of white wax, a dram of balsam of Peru, 2 drums of spermaceti, a dram of oil of cacao and 10 drains of rosewater and the same amount of sweet almond oil. Stir over the fire till well mixed, then strain through a hair sieve or a muslin cloth and put into little pots. These pots must be very carefully corked and tied dow.u *i!l 'Jjay are needsA for use. returned last evening to his home at Marion. Beware of Ointments That Contain Mercnrj.
