Blouomi ami ltattcr(ll*g Suddenly Trmii- formml Into Limp »n:l LlfelM* Thtn««—A Twlbln VU- Hutlun. It was Christmas clay, 1804, and ns I Mat at my open window, tho swcot fra- fpranco of roses filled tho air, mingled with that of sweet violets and pinks, writes a correspondent of the Now York Advertiser. Just beyond a bed of' tho latter towered a large grape-fruit tree, its green- clad branches bending beneath the weight of the great golden fruit balls they bore, many of them as large as tho head of a year-old infant. A little further on was a largo peach tree, a perfect picture of beauty, with Its limbs arrayed in delicate pink blossoms, and tho fresh green leaves peeping out here and there. On tho topmost branch a mocking bird was perched, trilling a sweet song 'from his very heart. And there, alighting amidst the sweet blossoms of the yellow jasmine, were several dainty butterflies. Had they lost their calendar, that they ventured out in midwinter? Well, small wonder if they had. Still further off stood row upon row ^B,<f beautiful trees, dressed in shiny VKrobes of green and spangled all over with j golden balls that presently would be j gathered and sent to the frozen north- I land, where they would gladden the palates of tho thousands that lovo our luscious juicy oranges. !.' Flowers and vines and trees were full of life and beauty, and, the birds, how !. they sang! Tho mocking bird, a half•'•' tamed petof the household, trilledforth •V his tiymn of thanksgiving, and preseut- ,' ! ly down beside him came, like a flaino- | colored flash, a scarlet-dad cardinal ). bird. A pause, as tho two eyed each other. War or peace? Peace, ah yes, ]''. .better so than war, above all on this ; , 'hallowed day, and so the two sweet ; voices were raised in song together, un'•••'• ,til tho bright eyes caught sight of those butterflies sailing away over the green grass. That was more than they could bear unmoved, and away they darted - in hot pursuit. Farther ofT still, just visible through the garden fence, were luxuriant rows of peas and beans and lettuce, and other vegetables. ' Brightly the sun shone, softly tho wind blew, sweetly the birds sang. All ivas beauty and peace and prosperity ; in the fair "Land of Flowers," where it . was'tnidsummer oven on Christmas day. And so it was" three days later. Tho thermometer marked seventy-iivo degrees at noon and all na»ure rejoiced in j tho balmy air. ( But suddenly tho soft breezes died j. away and from the northwest came j rushing down a mighty wind, hurling >'• into our dismayed faces a bitter, stiufr- \ imr cold. Down, down, down sank the mercury in its little "tube, until before dawn of next day it marked fifteen degrees. Think of it. A drop of sixty degrees within a few hours! Such a thing- was never known in Florida before, aud wo hope may never be known again. There was ice, thick ice, indoors as well us out, in pitchers, basins and cups, and vases filled with flowers were shattered. Milk was solid in the pans, butter and vegetables and meat were as brittle as ice itself. But these things, and the physical discom fort, were of .small account beside tho disaster that hud befallen those beautiful growing trees and plants. Again I looked from my window, not open now, and what did I see? First, our pet mockingbird, crouched close by amidst the dead leaves, and as I looked ho stirred and fell upon his back on the ground almost lifeless. But the warmth of a fire soon revived him and ho flew away to join the cardinal, which sat in the sunshine like a scarlet pullball. Gone were tho roses, the violets, the pinks, all the pretty flowers and vines; brown and somber was the emerald green of the lawn! But tho trees, tho poor trees! The delicate peach blossoms hung limp and withered. The glossy leaves of grape fruit and orange trees were brown and scorched aa though a fire had passed over them, and their golden fruit was frozen solid ico to its very heart, and soon it would fall upon tho ground, valueless. Even the song of the birds was stilled. They, like their human friends, had no heart to sing, albeit they did not know, as we did,- all that it meant to us, that one cruel night of the Ice King's visit. Young trees killed, old ones set back, millions upon millions of luscious fruits destroyed and thousands of acres^ of thrifty vegetables swept from the face of tho land! A scene of beauty changed to a scene of desolation, and all in a Jew hours' time! TU« End of n Flying Machine. A sad accident lately happened to a flying machine at Sydney, N..S. T>Y. Tho inventor did not accompany tho machine on its trial trip, and as no one volunteered tho machine was allowed to go alone. The following account of its performance has been sent over: "Hissing and snorting, it slid along the tram for a distance of one hundred feet, when, having reached tho end of the rails, instead of lifting its wings and floating gracefully across the harbor, it bumped against tho rocks and toppled over on to tho beach, part of it becoming submerged by tho waves. Some of the hot cinders from tho furnace came in contact with tho light materials of which it was constructed and set them on fire and in a few moments a portion of the framework and the machinery were all that remained of this production of inventive genius. The manager explained that the trial was a failure because there was not sufficient wind to fill the sails, and no one had been placed inside to sail it." How n DOB Bec»m» n 'Toetotnler. A lady at Westgate-on-Sea tells a remarkable anecdote of a dog who was cured of its evil habit of Jove for liquor. Some mischievous persons had so often given to her father's great dog bits of bread soaked in beer that Neptune grew fond of the artificial dainty. One- day when a large party was returning from a picnic, Iv ep was put on the bos- scat beside tho driver of the carriage, as he seemed too ,tircd to run home all the way. He must have drunk some liquor, at tho feast, for on 'the road he fell from the carriage to the ground. Xc bones were broken, though he nSst have gotaseverc shake, and a fright in the fall. The result was that Xep never once after that day ccnild be induced to touch bread soaked with liquor, turning from itwith loathing and contempt, the very smell of it being repulsive. In fact, he became a teetotaler. The Work of Insects. The great Barrier reef along the coast of"AustPalia is abont 1.500 miles long, the work of coral insects.

M kay, Jr., II»« Anlcod Slim Vnnder- blll'a Hand In MHrrlHCft — Ml»* Could'* Kent Move. . 1895.1 Tho approach of Lent's last day Is hailed in New York with absolute delight. The holy- season has seriously interfered with the revival 'of business among- the retailers. Indeed, the creditor class has found itself in an embarrassing position because these same conditions pre- IT OVER, vail all over the country. That is, tho hard times have left behind them such bitter memories that Lent was taken advantage of as an opportunity to recuperate pecuniar- ily, as it were. The result is that when Easter is fairly past there will be something in the nature of a rush to buy everywhere. The immediate effect of this will be to make business very brisk this spring and money will undoubtedly be very plentiful. It is no secret that New York financiers arc prepared to see the rate of interest go down with a rush this spring. Even now collections, although slow up to a week ago, have begun to improve. To add to the situation the foreign investors found themselves burdenec with idle capital after the withdrawal of gold last winter. Therefore, they have been forced to send money over here for investment. As j r ct the financiers have been cautious in putting that money out. Altogether tho prospect is not so pleasing as it might look. With money certain to be very plentiful and trade sure to revive phenomenally, the risk is that an era of unlicensed speculation will set in. Old financiers say thai this is the invariable consequence of prosperity coming quickly after a period of depression. Tho country is about to turn over a new leaf financially, and New York bankers are waiting with great interest to see what will follow. At the Theaters, The first matinee of "John-a-Dreams at the Empire theater demonstrated that H a d d e n Chambers' very strong drama is going to d r a w the women. Tho house was packed and there was as much enthusiasm as if it were a night audience. Very few men were present. Therefore, it was a novel thing to see the whole audience remain in their seats for five minutes after the play ended loudly applauding and bringing tho actors forward twice to bow their acknowledgment. "John-a- Dreams" has proved n great financial success; in fact, much more so than Charles Frohman had counted on, for he was anxious to do other plays before tho regular season, and it is probable now that these will have to be held in abeyance. James E. Powers, the popular comedian, was back in New York with tho New Boy" last week. He had in his support Miss Rachel Booth, Frederick Robinson and all the people engaged in the original New York production of the piece. "The New Boy" Is a ijery funny farce. Its hero is a short man, with a wife of superior and overshadowing 'physique who passes him off aa her son, aged fourteen, in which guise he is obliged to go to school again and suffer many amusing indignities. Powers has the title role, and plays it in his own clever and, versatile way. -Too Much Johnson" has a mother- in-law in it, but no woman with a past. The mother-in-law is a very up-to-date person and tries to do the bossing, but the Yonkers hero subdues her and therein lies considerable of the laugh pressure of tho play. No suspicion attaches to her preterite and there's nothing risque about the lady, or the play. William Gillette is in charge of the festival of fun at the Standard theater and says he courts the fullest investigation on this point by the theatergoers of New York. In the meantime "Too Much Johnson" continues its undisturbed triumph and has run twenty- two weeks at the Standard. MJ«» Gonld'» Jfew Move. When Miss Helen Gould returns from tier tour of the south, where she is now traveling with a small party of her intimate personal friends, she will begin her preparations to set up a separate establishment in New York city. That is. she will have a homo of her own, in which MISS GOULD'S TEGEo PRO- she proposes to . live her own life Perfect .health is maintained by expelling' from the uwy T!I« decayed product of digestion.

EMQN.TONIC-LAXATIVE in her own way. l"t is an open secret that this has long- been the ardent wish of Miss. Gould. Her wish has heretofore been thwarted by the representations of her brother George that such a step would be highly unconventional, seeing that Miss Helen is unmarried, young 1 and au orphan. The girl has compromised, therefore, by making Irvington her girl-bachelor retreat. There she has invited her poor proteges. One in particular, a si.x- ycar-old of the missions, is to be educated very expensively by Miss Gould, the little girl having developed extraordinary musical genius, playing nearly • ;ns»-'tn<*nt liv ear Miss Helen wants a home in Kew Yorl; 10 PC near her personal interests of this nature. She will live a very unique life. Where her home will be is uncertain. It was thought possible that she would buy the deserted Willie Vanderbilt palace on Fifth avenue, but of course that is but conjectu re. A Now PuclUc That wonderful millionaire. C. Hnntington, has a big deal afoot. P. De leaves New York for C a 1 i fornir very soon, and ib now immersed in preparatory nc- foliations look' ing ,to the business interests In. must permit to go without his personal atten tion for awhile. It is well known that Mr. Hunt ing-ton expects to HUXTI-VGTOSf'S FAD. g el his great bil through the next congress without much difficulty. All his arrangements with that, eucHu view have been full} matured, but his sudden visit to Call fornia is understood to have as its, object a conference with Mrs. Lelanc Stanford and the representatives of the other great estates involved in the gov eminent suits for the recovery of the Union Pacific liability. Other storich are likewise in circulation to the eU'ec' that Uuntington is tired of tho turmoil of finance and wishes to retire to dignified ease in his old age. He has been taking- great interest in social and re- lig-ious matters lately, thanks to the influence of his daughter, and is honorary member of a very fashionable society in New York for the support o1 vested choirs in poor churches. This is quite a new fad for him, but at any rate the old man has been acquiring great popularity in New York recently by his kindly interest in various worthy movements. The result of his tour to California will be eagerly awaited. Carnecle't Tour. Andrew Carnegie will be in Paris un til the 1st of May. Then he goes to Toulon and after that to Scotland. Ho proposes to return to New York in September, and will then make the metropolis his permanent home. This step ho takes at the earnest solicitation of his wife who, by the way, CARNEGIE'S DEFIXI a c c o m p a nies TION. him on this trip to Europe. This lady was very ill about two weeks ago, but recovered, and is now apparently in the best of health. It is no secret among Mr. Carnegie's friends that the political ambitions he once entertained were diverted into a social 'channel through his wife's Influence. Once popular, Carnegie is now disliked except by those who meet him personally. Then his genial dignity makes a roost favorable impression. But ho will find it very hard to establish himself in New York society, for that is an expensive undertaking. The question now is, will he build another new Tionse or will ho resurrect tho old one, or will he become some social mag- 'nate's tenant? His famous definition of a society man as a man who committed cannibalism every time ho ate pork, is not forgotten in the metropolis. The Glided Tonth'c Lore. The departure of young John W. Mackay, Jr., for Europe is amusing- all who have been in possession of the facts concerning the alleged tacit engagement b e - tween theyouth- f n 1 millionaire and one of the many Miss Van- derbilts. It will be recalled that this juve'nile Mackay was said to be betrothed to Miss Gertrude Vanderbilt, a rumor promptly denied by the family. Then it was announced that Miss Consuelo was to wed an English lord. That story was also totally repudiated. This the "parties concerned conld do, because by some mix up or other the names of the two young misses had been transposed. There is really no further reason to befog the matter. Everybody in society knows that young JiLr. Mackay has made a formal proposition for Miss Consuelo's hand. Mrs. Vanderbilt hesitates and wants her daughter to wait. When all the Van- derbilts met at Cannes recently,.with Hr. Dner, Mrs. Vanderbilt's counsel, the marriages of the girls were freely discussed and no secret was made of the fact As for young Mackay, he is known to be very much in love, and is very popular and sensible. His bachelor extravagances take a queer turn once in .awhile, however. He has a billiard-room with stained glass windows, on which are emblazoned the ! faces of bis bachelor friends in earica- MACKJ.y'3 IDEA- What is Castoria is Dr. Samuel Pitchers prescription for Inland and Children, it contains neither Opium, Morphine nor- other Narcotic substance.

The Chlcac 0 Andnbon Society the Only ODD of It* Kind. The up-to-date woman may bave political bees in Ijer Sunday bonnet, if she likes, but the Chicago Audubon society insists she shall not indulge in • dead birds. This fashionable adornment is emphatically declared to be thoughtless cruelty. In a word, the object of this comparatively new and unique organization of men and women is the protection of birds. To this end a monthly meeting is held, says the Times-Herald. So extensive has become the killing of birds for feminine fashion that the subject is attracting widespread attention among ornithologists. The Chicago Audubon societv, however, claims to be the only organization formed for the condemnation of the use of birds for millinery purposes. At the regular meeting held the other afternoon liev. George Pratt read a paper on "Amateur Ornithology/' followed by musical numbers. The audience was made tip mostly of women who practice what they preach by not wearing birds in their bonnets, though they indulge In ostrich plumes, on the plea that this does not necessitate the killing of the bird. "There are eight million birds slaughtered annually in the name of fashion," said Mrs. E. Irene Rood, president of the society. "As an organization we propose to be instrumental in the protection of birds and in time introduce siich bills in tie legislature. At present we are- much interested in the bill now pending, which • relates to the game laws of Illinois. ''The Chicago And-nbon society is, 1 believe, the only organization of the kind in the UhKe'd States," she-continued. "There -was one in New York,. but it has disbanded." The society numbers forty-four members and was organized several months. ago. _ _ . '. Wbat Qneen Victoria Ssia. An amusing example of Queen Victoria's precocious wit is going the- rounds of the English press. While*but a mcro child she used to delight George IV. -by her quaint remarks^ One day when staying at tbo royal- lodge the king entered the drawing- room leading his little nicca by tho- hand. The band was stationed as usual, in the adjoining conservatory. "Now,... Victoria/' said bis majesty, "the band- is in the next room and shall play »ny tune you please; what shall it be?"" "0, uncle, 7 ' replied the princess, with, great readiness, "I should like 'God- Save the King' better than anything- else." The little princess at that time,, it must be remembered, was but 01106 removed in the line of succession. Tl)<! Cause* of Statistics are quoted to show that in.'
