The lodianapolia Journal has begun a campaign for reform in leglela- tlve work .and the wish may well be ex preaaed that it will not tire in the good work. The wonder is that the Indianapolis papers, In a position to oloBely observe legislative methode, have not advocated a reform ere this. The legislature of 1895 was superior to any ol its predecessors of recent years notwithstanding the fact that the members were almost all new at the business, and the Republican leaders themselves Inexperienced advisers. The two houses were in. dustrious and careful and evidenced a spirit of true reform but they were handicapped by the neoesnUy for hasty action. It probably took three weeks for the members to discover that nothing could be accomplished by each member devoting »U his energies to Retting his owi particular bill through and to get to work at general legislation. The hurry of the last three weeks was equally productive of bad results. The Journal suggests two sessions, one for the introduction of bills and their advancement and a second, after sufficient time for the people- to discuss the measures, for their paesage. Such a change with proper restrictions would be an immense step forward and the; suggestion deserves the support of the people and press of the State regardless of politics. •" • ; There should be some' method devised to do away with the long and Lake Erie & Western, Special Correspondence.

There is grief among the.women who know whas it means to dress artistically, for the great artist in gowne hai joined the majority, and will riev.er. more have the exquisite pleasure of dressing a beautiful woman. AB Worth has grown older there have come up numerous men dressmakers,, who were, perhaps given greater vogue by eome, and who claimed, to he D ore fashionable, But wise women knew that not one of them, no matter how great were his successes, ever attained the position, held by "him." Certainly he was an artist in color as developed in fabrics, and so thoroughly was be was he imbued with the artistic spirit, that no amount of money could Induce him to even consider certain women. They could buy the ready-made toilettes tbat were on exhibition In his establishment, but deilgn gowns for them he would not, WHAT M. WORTH ACCOMPLISHED. Mere ugliness had nothing to do with this fact, for the Princess Metier nlch, who doesn't hesitate to iay her «elf that she looks like a, monkey, was one of hli favorites, and on her he. put »ome ot the most exquisite cbntumei he ever made. H««rever, she was a living proof that there Is something else needed to make a woman fascinating than mere beauty. In truth, she is the living proof that beauty is not needed at all If that intangible something, for which no better name than style has ever been found, is possessed. This artist in gowns was the first one who had the courage to say that yellow could be worn by a blonde.

Each bill should be printed and laid on the desks of members three days before its introduction and a majority rote should alone permit of the introduction of a measure. Those are minor suggestions as to methods. The most important reform is that suggested by the Journal and it should be earnestly advocated. TBK census of Logansport taken last week by the Sunday school workers seems to bo more accurate than Is usually Ihe case in census work. The figures show S 458 families or homes. They do not show the number of newspaper renders but as a rule about three.fourtb.sof the families take one or more of the daily papers of the town in towns of 10,000 to 20,000. The 3, 458 families show a population of 13, 966, an average of four to a family. Three hundred and twenty-five fam. liies were reported "not at home" and taking the average of four and muHl- plylog, a population of 1300 is represented by these families. This added to tbo 13,966 gives a total population 15,266. Compared with tbe census of 1S90 H shows a gain of' almost 2,000 and a healthy growth. Logansport has never been a boom towa but its growth has been steady. Its buildings are eubstantlal and its public works sound. It Is a model city in many respects, neat and compact and metro- polUan and every citizen ought to be proud of it. With the revival of business that seems already begun, peace and plenty will once mora abound and Logansport will show greater progress than that indicated by the census of 1895. _ . CO.

Many have already registered but others have as yet failed to io so. Some people are so unkind as to intimate that .many of the fair sex have failed to register on account of having to tell their, age. WHILE the financial outlook is becoming brighter, the gold ln the trea8 ' ury is still much less than a year ago. It now amounts to |90 000,000 «rtpie.» year ago H wail |107.000,000;g,T»p sunshine. Every woman looks bettor when she is framed in it, and so there must be some special tone suited to each woman. Sunehine brings a glow to her oheeks, to her eyes brightness »nd makes pronounced, in the most effective way, the perfect color of, her hair." So on Sarah Bernhardt he put a yellow velvet gown, with which she wore creamy pearls, and in It looked more beautiful than ever in all her life. Another color idaa exploded by him was that BL0K BELONGED TO BLONDES was an impossible shade fora brunette. A blonde IB the cold-expression of beauty. Blue is at once the coldest and purest color in the rainbow. Consequently when a blonde wears blue she becomes ice. Her skin is faded, her eyes are dulled and her eyes are lustreless. The brunette with her warmth of color, her glossiness of hair, her brilliancy of eyes is suited to the blue, which shares in the general warmth and becomes harmonious. Then, .too, Worth taught women the value of black with a distinction, and Jhe des- plsed making an all black dress. He claimed the -e was nothing entirely black In nature except the crow and the black bird, and they were birds not held in esteem. There were no black flowers, and as women ars tbe walking flowers, of the world, they should never wear black unless It is relieved by a bright tone. • Personally, I shall never forget my experience with Worth in regard to black. I had all a blonde's lova for a black gown. I had all of the Quaker- esses yearning 'for a stiff silk, and I insisted upon the two, I was told that 'if I wished a black gown it would he relieved by rose color, otherwise I could not have it. I persisted WORTH "WAS IMMOVABLE. I wanted the gown, consequently, I had to give in. When it came to me it was a dream. There was a heavy lustrous • satin, rich with jets, and decorated with kcots of pink ribbon, shaded from the faintest rose to the deepsst crimson. It was a triumph of mind over matter. And it convinced a very stubborn woman that the man knew his trade, not only as a good dressmaker, but as a student in the harmony of colors. There existed an idea that Worth approved of what is known at the "hour-glasa type." I know that he refused to drei* 1 women of this shape. If they- expected him to design* gown, they must loosen their sUji,,.wear proper ihbei: «ad that of Mrs. Lang'.ry, and one look at her will prove to any woman ibat her magnificent fi *? ure was cevrer D0m " pressed by a corset, although oce is worn at all times, except when the sleeping hour comes. Siill, it has always been the slave and not tbe master. THE RAGE FOB WORTH GOWNS. Innumerable dresses came out ot Worth's establishment that he never §aw, that were never approved by him, and tbat were simply made to sell. When he would dress a, woman, that Is, design a toilette for ber. It was because he approved of ber appearance. When there grew at first to bs a rage for '•VTorth" gowns, there were women of all sorts and conditions who longed to have his name on the belts of ih«lr bodices, and these women knew as much about artistic gowns as the proverbial cat does of Christmas. They wanted that which would an. nouoce itself. Tbey wanted frocks that told In every button, In every loop, and in every bit of lace how expensive they were. Worth could take linen at 15 cents a yard, trim it with Torchon lace and make a frock not only fit for a duchess, but yearned for by every duchess on his list. But these gowns, the joys of women of good taste, were not the gowns wanted by the women who believe in making their money talk in their frocks and in their houses, and so they were catered to by the establishment alone, and were the horror of the artist himself. HE WAS THE FIRST MAN In this century' who reminded a great lady that, when Petrarch saw Laura as she came from church, she wore a green velvet gown looped with bunches of violets, and that a knot of violets was never perfect unless surrounded by its own green leaves. And so he produced tbe combination. It was worn by Mme de Pourtales, and all the world of women raised their hands In wonder and delight, and each wanted a gown like it. He was the artist in gowns who combined pale blue and violet, and did it so deftly that tbe woman who wore this creation looked like a Dresden China statue, and was imitated by women with red faces and bleached hair and man JT ducats, and by many who thought that a fashion, able frock would look well on anybody. These are the people who make peo- pie's eyes ache, but they exist, and It seems as if they never would fade into desuetude, And they are the ones whom Worth never would dress, at whom ho ahrugged his shoulders, apd of whom he said, it was only necessary to cover them, for they knew nothing about dress In its best sense. WORTH WAS WOMAN'S BENEFACTOR. A Worth frock, it is true, was expensive; but, if tbe great man made it for you, it was one year ahead of the style, consequently it could be worn two seasons and counted good form, and then it would stand remodeling. Wisely enough, he never permuted anything but the best material to be used, and consequently as long as a scrap lasted It could be utilized. This man ought never to be forgotten by womsn. He took tbe law into his own hands when gowns were at their ugliest, when colors were most crude and when harmony in a toilette was unknown. Out of chaos he created order. He taught women the art of dress. He was generous with his suggestions, and the result is that all the world over womankind is more Eensibly attired, can select, if she wishes, tbe shades most suitable to her, and can always bo smart, no matter how simple her raiment, if she knows how to wear her clothes. If she does not, she might as well assume a salt bag. The knowledge of wearing gowns, of giving them an individual air is shared by the French and American women. Tee English woman is at her best in evening dress. The French woman, from the duchess down to the grisette wears that which is suited to bar position and wears_it with an air that is indescribable. Iso single word can be found to express it. In America this ability does not extend through all classes, but here and there, are found women who look well in anything they assume. Unfortunately, there are no caste distinctions, and so the maid servant imlmtes the mistress and appears in a cheap silk, a tawdry hat decorated with flaunting .feathers that, having lout their curl, seem to weep at their dia- grace, instead of looking chic in a black gown, a white apron and a white cap.

Speaking of Worth and Mrs. Langtry, most ot us eaw hoc in a new play, -.Gossip." Her appearance proved to New Yorkers that the years have not withered nor custom staled her marvelous beauty. A little thinner, per. hups, but the head is on the shoulders In the same wondrous way, and the body gracefully curved as It was when she first made her bow to us, I think none of us like to eay bow many years ago. She was not tbe heroine of the play. That part was taken by an actress whom I have never admired, Effie (Shannon. Her voice has always seemed unpleasant to me, and she is blonde to inanity. Her lack of color Inekln.hair and eyes brought out Langtry'scharasasa gray skeleton leaf would a damask rose. So she was a good foil. Most of ua were deeply interested in the gowns worn by the English beauty. They reprc sented the styles for the summer, and of them it may be said that they wer« faint in color, being pale greens, dul 1 pinks and faint blues, etlll they were much trimmed with large but not enormous sleeves. One good lesson was taught by Mrs. Langtry in her costumes. Until she was in an even- Ing toilette, she never wore even a brooch, but, when on her way to a ball she stopped to do her friend a good turn, she was gowned in a white satin spangled with silver and embroidered In roses, while on her hend was a crown,'not a tiara, of diamonds. About her throat was a diamond and ruby necklace, and on the bodice, cut low enough to show that beautiful neck, glittered diamonds and rubies Innumerable. WEARERS OF THE CROWN ROYAL A crown is not an easy thing to wear. Shakespeare eald that a long time ago In a different way, and with a different meaning. But Lang, try's eat upon her head as if she had been born in the shadow of it. Apropos, of course, it is very funny to see Mrs. George Gould wear hers- She assumes it as if it were a bonnet, and Jit sets far back on her head- Another well-known woman wears hers slightly to one side, which gives ber a peculiarly rakish air, but this magnificent crown of the Jersey Lily's Is worn on the lop of her head, just as the Queen would woar hers, and gives to her a stately air, while it never takes away from her beauty. I regard this as the most trying decoration for any woman, and that tbe beauty was superior to the stiff circlet of diamonds certainly proved that it was real beauty and not imitation WE ARE SO RICH IX BEAUTIES. I do admire a beautiful woman, and lamalwajs willing- to give every woman the honest praise tbat her beauty calls forth. Wo are eo rich in beauties that sometimes we don' quite realize all that it means. There Is nothing in tbe world to be compared to a lovely woman except a beautiful flower, "or an exquisite peach. We have them all in tbl great eountrj of ours, lovely women We can keep them and make each generation of them finer and more per feet by giving each the proper consid eration and care due it. It ie in tb hands of the Ameiican man to do this I, for one, beliere he will, bscaus h'e is a courteous to all women, an appreciative of their goodness, as we! as th«lr beaaty; and BO I guarantee -' wiser, the distinctions In dress will be more;Kener*Und taste :wlU.be better. Foil of Sturtllof Snrprlm for tUe Bnlrn Itlittod Traveler. Jerusalem is a city of surprises. It Is, apart from its sacred associations^ an intensely interesting spot even to^ travelers who are already saturated with the hitherto unfamiliar and sur- j prising charms of Cairo. Athens and ^ Constantinople. Its size can best be ., expressed by the statement that the i Journey round about the outside of its j wall* may be made by an ordinarily . rapid walker in the space of an hour. | Its houses are small, irregular in shape, • squalid and mean. Its streets, if street* : they can bo called, are not named or . numbered; they are steep, crooked. * narrow, roughly paved, never cleaned, * and in many Instances they are vaulted | over by the buildings on each side of ^ them. Never a pair of wheels traverse » them, and rarely is a horse or a donkey seen within the walls. The halt, the maimed and the blind, the leprous and the wretchedly poor, form the great hulk of the population of Jerusalem, and, with the single exception of the Hebrews, they are persistent and clamorous beggars. Trade and com-, mercc seem to be confined to the bare necessities of life, and to dealers in ] beads and crucifixes. There is but one hotel, and that not a good hotel, within ( its walls; and one Turkish merchant, who displays in his little windowles* dooriess shop a small assortment of silver charms, trinkets and bric-a-brac to the Raze of the passer-by, is almost the only vender of anything like luxuries in the place. His customers, of course, are the pilgrims who come to sec, and. not to worship. Jerusalem is unique as a city In 'bich everything is serious and solemn, nd severe! It has no clubs, no bar- ooras, no beer gardens, no concert alls, no thcatcri-., no lecture rooms. 10 places ol amusement of any kmd, 10 street bunds, no wandering mu»- trcls, no weaHliy or upper classes, no mayor, no aldermen, no newspapers, no jrintin"- presses, no book stores-^ ept one outside the walls, for the sal* if Bibles-no cheerfulness, no We. -Nc one sings, no one dances.no one laughs n Jerusalem; even the chUdren do not play- The Jews, it is .said, form almost two-thirds of the population of the city. They occupy a. section which, covers tbe greater part of the cast-: ward slope of Zion, and the Jewish , quarter is the most wretched in the. whole wretched town. Its inhabitants v are quiet and subdued in 'bearing; they J ,r,.,w no claims to their hereditary j , , in the Royal City of their kings; ^ they simply and silently and patiently >, wait.
