APRIL 17 A CHILD died ID New York B few days ago SB a result of the badly written Latin of the phyelolan's prescription which the druggist was unable to decipher correctly. When prescriptions are written In English, aa advance toward rational methods Bug gests, accidents of this kind will, not occur 80 frequently. IT did not take the detectives long to capture Tr*ln Robber Perry, who escaped from a Naw York State Insane asylum, after Governor Morton had offered a reward of $1,000 to the person who returned him to the asylum. There is a suspicion that Perry bad been 'located and all that was needed for hie return was the promise of the reward. IT is evident tbot many new English words have been manufactured In the last few decades. When Samuel Johnson, a great master of the English language, prepared his famous dictionary he only succeeded in finding 45,000 words to place between the covers of the book that for years remained the authority on the language, Noah Webster, the great American lexicographer, managed to dig up a few thousand more English words to which he gave authority as an acknowledged arbiter of language. Each succeeding edition of Weoster's dictionary contained additional words and the latest edition of this standard work has about 125,000 words. Wor- cester'g dictionary, another authority, has been swollen to 105,000 words. When the Century dictionary, which Is In the nature of an enoyo'opaedla,' appeared with over 225,000 words, It was thought that the language had been padded out to Its full extent. The goourers for new words, however, did not cease their labors and the Standard dictionary which recently appeared contains by actual count 301,865 words or 75,000 words more than any work previously Issued. ;'„ . This flood ef new words is most be wllderlng and the scholar who became acquainted with the spelling and pro- nounclatlon of every word in the language so he could use them without referlng to the dictionary would be a wonder. Somei of the strongest writers of English have been noted for the limited vocabulary used In their worki. There is unquestionably much that it superfluous and unnecessary in these mammoth dictionaries. THE government exhibit of forestry afyhe Cotton States and Industrial ex« po'sltlon at Atlanta, next September will be unusually complete. An exchange says: "The foreit resources will be shown, aside from maps and ohartB and other graphic Illustrations, ai to their amount and distribution, by a series of twenty displays, show- Ing trees, which form the bulk of lumber production in the south.

A,CoBtly Monument to Be Erected to His Memory. It 1» the Old Indl»n'ii Own Idea and Cost » Thousand DoUarm —To B« of Unique Oculcn, Cat from Vermont Mjtrble. , The erection of a costly monument in memory of an American Indian is an odd thing, but when the particular Indian to be thus remembered is still alive, it make the matter all the more nnique. A marble monument will soon adorn the last resting place of Indian Chief Kahshakes at Cape Fox, in Alaska, typifying the tribe and its chief. Chief Kahshalces is still alive, and though & very old man is not likely, by'reason of good health, to be memorialized by the creation of his own fancies. The chief has had this object in view for many years, and saved for that purpose. So designed the monument, had one of his own men carve out a two-foot model covering his allegorical creation, and then sent the model to a well-known sculptor, Mr. A. C. Thompson, who has completed the work. The monument, which cost Chief Kahshakes over $1,000, is of pure white Vermont marble, and although the sculptor wus constrained to follow the design as regards an uncouth figure of a beaver, he succeeded in giving to the shaft, the eyrie and the eagle an artistic touch that reflects great credit on his ability as a sculptor, and which will no doubt greatly please the old chief when be sees it. The chief's idea of his monument was a pillar resting on the back of a beaver, with an eagle on its nest, surmounting the column. Kahshakes' monument is an allegorical representation of himself and his tribe. The beaver symbolizes industry, the characteristic of the tribe; the shaft the tribe itself, planted firmly on the rock of industry; the ej-rie is the chief's home, supported and protected by the tribe, and tho eagle about to take his last flight represents Kahsha- kes at his death winging his way toward the scttiDg sun to join his forefathers in the happy hunting-grounds of the spirit land. This allegory, still further carried out by the rude poetic mind of the untutored Indian, is to tho effect that though the nest shall be- CHIEF KAUSHAKE8. come temporarily vacant, a new chief will occupy it and the tribe- with its foundation of industry shall go on forever. This unique monument, complete, with a stone baso under the beaver when set up, will havo a total heig-ht of nine feet. The beaver on which the shaft rests is three and one-half feet long-; the shaft of the eyrie is five feet in height. The eagle in the crouching . attitude of flying away from tho nest is fifty-two inches from tip to tip, arid thirty-six inches from bill to tail. The . general efiect of the whole monument, though considerably modernized by the skill of Mr. Thompson, yet possesses many of the characteristics peculiar to , the Alaska Indians. The Indian tribe, of which old Kah- shakes is the chief, is at Cape Fox, near New Metlakahtla, and comprises about 1,000 of the best and the most intelligent of all the Indians that make up Duncan's missionary post in Alaska. The Indians at Cape Fox are remnants of the ancient Chilkats. In character these Indians are a strange composition—unemotional, morose, unsympathetic, superstitious, without the slightest idea of gratitude, and having an astonishing respect for the property of others. When on a trading journey, or out hunting, they will leave their belongings hanging on bushes all along the trail; and Enow- shoes, sometimes a musket, blankets, a leg of smoked bear, a dried salmon, are frequently noticed along an Indian path. These Indians in the old days dressed in skins, and had garments picturesquely fringed and tasseled, and beaded and woven in with stained swanquills. They wore bracelets of ; copper and carried copper spears, ' knives -and arrows. In those days no ceremony was complete unless attended j by human sacrifice; execution of slaves was of frequent occurrence, for superstitions belief deemed disaster and illness the doing of angry spirits, only to . be appeased by the shedding of human blood.' To-day they remain a single reminder of their past greatness and power. Only DI» Button! Were Left. An instance of the great dissolving powers of sulphuric acid is furnished by an accident which recently occurred in the chemical factories at Mulhouso, Alsaco. An operative was blown up in- j to the air and fell into a trough filled , about, three feet deep with sulphuric | acid, the temperature of which was : found to be 91 degrees C. ten hours after the accident. The death of the man was only proved by the.dis- «overy of his , caoutchouc respirator; . muzzle, two porcelain buttons and' other unsolnble articles. Everything else had chemically combined .with th* , " ToiB» Dwilcst«(l to the Confederate . , Died »t Chlcmto, Union and confederate veterans will unite Memorial day in the dedication of tht monument to the unknown dead of the southern armies in Oakwoods cem- ettry, Chicago. All the south will be there in spirit, and the 7,000 graves will be strewn with arbutus blossoms from the mountains of Kentucky and Tennessee, tiger lilies from Georgia, roses from Texas and moss from Florida. And the shaft of the monument will rise from a bed of flowers gathered by daughters, wives and sisters of those who fought and fell on southern soil in the woods and fields for which they died. Gen. John C. Underwood, formerly a resident of Chicago", and one of the CONFEDERATE MOXU1TEXT, CHICAGO. leaders of tho movement to build the monument commemorating- the brave deeds and heroic fortitude of the southern soldiers who have their last resting place in Oakwoods cemetery, who went to Georgia to secure the flowers, lias gent word that his mission has been successful. They will be sent to Chicago in refrigerator cars. Surrounding tbe monument will be four cannons, which were appropriated by special act of congress. They have not yet been placed in position, but will be before Decoration day. When the veil falls an imposing- monument forty feet high with pedestal of Tennessee marble and statue of bronze will be seen. The figure will be recognized by every old confederate as that of a typical southern infantryman. In tattered clothes, badly worn shoes,, with stockings drawn over the trousers, he stands with folded arms, having no musket, and looks down as if in sorrow on the field where many of his comrades sleep. The face of the monument will show a bronze seal of the confederacy enlarged, with the inscription: KHECTED TO THE MEMORT or fl.OOOSOUTHERNSOLDIEHS. HEIIB BOEIED, WHO DIED IN CAMP DODG LAS PRISON, 1802-05. • • w '"•' The words "Confederate Dead" are on the base in large letters. On the eastern face is a bronze panel representing "a call to arms." The return of the soldier to his homo is pictured on the west face. Ou the south side the soldier's last sleep is illustrated. ' CHICAGO'S NEW MAYOR. George B. Swlff» Public Record It Not » Dad On». George B. Swift, who has just been elected mayor of Chicago by a plurality of over 40,000, was born forty-nine years ago at Cincinnati, O. He came to Chicago in 1802 and was educated at tho Skinner school, the high school and tho Chicago university. He entered business with the firm of Lord & Smith as cashier, and in 18TO went into business for himself as a member of the firm of Frazier, Swift & Co. This firm afterward becamo the Frazier Highest bf in* Lewoimg Rme^LUC^T\ Report OKOBQE B. SWIFT, HAYOB OF CHICAGO. Lubricating company, of which Mr. Swift is general manager. Ever since bis advent into the business world Mr. Swift has been a potent factor in the commercial life of Chicago. It is probably in public life that he has been better known, however. He has lived in the Eleventh ward for thirty-three years, or ever since he has been in Chicag-o, with the exception of six months he resided on the South side. He has watched the ward improve and increase in value, and has done as much as any man to aid it in this direction. He represented the ward In the city council from 1S79. to 1SS1, and his one term was marked with ability and interest for the people. Mr. Swift served as special agent of the treasury under President Arthur, rod was commissioner of public works wider Mayor Eoche. It vras in this latter position that he made his great record for brilliancy and integrity. In 1893 he was again elected to the coun- cfl, being -nominated at a meeting of citizens of his w»rd, irrespective of party. -He was. in Florida at the time, and knew nothing ° f I" 8 selection until his return* 'After the assassination of Mayor Carter H.

H* C»m« to America to labcrlt »n Ett»t» !• Virginia. There is no record of his having atr tended any school except that of the parish of Kirkbean; but he developed » truly Scotch passion for reading and writing. lie went to sea when twelve years old, and made two voyages during his minority In a slaver; but, hating the traffic, "he left it and the ship too. At twenty he was in command of a fine brigantine. About this time occurred what he calls, in a letter to Robert Morris, "a great misfortune," adding: "T am under no concern whatever that this, or any other circumstance of my past life, will sink mo in your opinion." The trouble was a threatened criminal prosecution for having had a carpenter flogged—which was the usual mode of punishment m those days. The matter was investigated, and Paul Jones was fully acquitted. It is worthy of remark that the magistrate who inquired into that matter, notes that Paul Jones expressed great sorrow for having had the man flogged, although tho charge of cruelty was fully disproved. Ho returned to Scotland once after this, and, although affectionately received by his own family, his friends and neighbors seem to have treated him coldly. The smart from this injustice turned the indifference he felt for his native land into hatred, and ever after he considered himself quite free from any responsibility for baring been born and having spent the first twelve years of his life in so inhospitable a country. In bis twenty-seventh year a great and fortunate chauge occurred to him. His brother William, who had emigrated to Virginia and died there, left him an estate. There is no doubt that Paul Jones was often afterward in want of ready money; but it must be remembered that everybody was iu want of ready money in the eighteenth century. Certain it is, from his papers preserved at Washington, that he might be considered at the beginning of the war a man of independent fortune. The two years of his life in Virginia are obscure, as might be expected from a man living the life of a provincial country gentleman, which tbe records concerning him prove. At the outbreak of tbe war with the mother country, Paul Jones hastened to Philadelphia, and through Mr. Joseph Hcwes, a member of congress from Korth Carolina, got his commission as senior first lieutenant in tho infant navy of the colonies. It was then he made the acquaintance of Robert Morris, to whom he felt a passionate gratitude and affection, and whom he named as sole executor in his will, Mr. Hewea being then dead.—Miss Molly Elliot Seawell, in Century. THE WOMEN OF VENICE. Be«utr of Severml Types, Including «om« That Ate SurprlnlnulT Oriental. Venetian women are rarely pretty, often charming-, generally handsome. And all of them, without exception, walk splendidly, not taking- little i mincing feminine steps, but with a fine grave stride, due partly to the fact that they arc accustomed to wear heellcss slippers, which oblige them to plant the feet firmly, and the whole foot at once, without a chance of tripping on toes or pounding on heels, a« women who wear tight boots are able, and apt, to do; they walk with much the same action as if they were barefooted, and just as welL And they use the whole body in walkimz, not with the undulatory motion of Spanish women, but with a movement of the whole back and shoulders, in tho exact swing of the stride. Venetian women do, however, remind one in many ways of Spanish women, in their way of doing the hair, of wearing the mantilla, for instance—the Moorish element, that is, coming out in both, so that in Venice, for instance, one finds, quite as a matter of course, an Antico Cafce dei Mori, a cigarette is still known as a spagnoletto, and the dialect touches Spanish at all points.. The types of Venetian women vary in • every quarter; the women of the Cas! tello have quite a different look from j the women of the Dorsoduro. In a se.i: port town there is always a certain intermixture of races, and Venice, with, the different layers of its different occupations and conquests, is variable to a greater degree than most seaports. Remembering that nearness which Venice has always had to the cast, it is not altogether surprising- to find amonjf tbe Venetian types, and not least frequently, one which is almost Japanese. They are singularly charming', these small, dark, catlike creatures, with j their small black eyes, vivid as the eyes of a wild animal, their little noses, prettily curved in at the tip, their mouths, with thick, finely curved lips, their hair, too, sometimes drawn back in the Japanese manner. And they have that look of cat-like comfort and good humor, which is also a Japanese trait. Then there are many Jews here, and in the Jewish women yon find often the finest type of Jewish beauty, in which racial characteristics : stop short just at the perfect moment. Yon find, too, but only, now and again, I th« -vivid swarthiness of the en»r. with the shining Wack hair, as black and polished as ebony, plaited and coiled tightly round the back of tho head. Then there are many quite blonde women, as is often the case in seaports. The Venetian red does not exist, if, indeed, it ever did, in nature, for there are recipes for its production, a painful process, in which you sat in the full heat of tbe sun, with your face covered, and your hair laid out around you to get soaked and colored with sunlig-ht. The women nowadays feel that the color is not worth the headache. But they add to nature in one matter with extraordinary persistence; they powder their faces, slightly on- week days, and thickly on feSt**, rarely with much art, with, rather, an ingenuous obviousness which, so far a* my observation goes, is unique. Even quiet young girls use poudre da rii, without the slightest necessity for its use; possibly, for one reason, because they think it bad for the complexion to wash the face much", and powder saves a good deal of washing. It gives a charming air of sophistication to people who are not too civilized to be frankly human, who arc in most ways so natural, and who are so happily wanting in those "little ways" which we call, by way of reproach, feminine. But they aro full of fantastic contradictions, powdering their faces, which are nice, and leaving their figures, which are inclined too much to the; square, to take care of themselves, without the aid or the direction of stays. And there is something elaborately artificial in the way many of them have of doing- their hair in little kisscurls, composed in all manner of different ways; iu little rows of corkscrews, or harebells, tinkling- along the forclvstul, oz in trails down tho side of the checks, 'like Carpaccio's great picture of the "Courtesans." Women and girls, even children, dress exactly alike; and there, is nothing more comical, more charming, than the jttlo people of twelve who look like twenty; brilliant, fascinating little people, at once very childish and very mature, with their hair coiled at the back liko their elders, their skirts down to their heels, their shawls too long for thP.m, dang-ling to the ground, but worn with an air of infinite importance and self-sufficiency. And the colors of all these women, tbe excellent olives, the delicate blondes, are thrown out so well, so finely adorned by the vivid colors of shawls and dresses and stockings, which would be gaudy elsewhere, but which hero, in the heat and glitter of such an atmosphere, are always in place, never immoderate. They arc all a part of the picture, the great genre picture, which is Venice.—Uarper's Magazine. JTr». J. .P.
