THE ELECTRIC FOUNTAIN. hs numberless twinkling lights of the )icycles, and in the background on one corcher known only about the park ind the Cony Island cycle path. Although, the exhibition -was called he opening one, it really was not, for on the Thursday night before the foun- ain was tested before a large and en- ;husiastic crowd. Mayor Wurster and other city officials were there to lend jgnity to the occasion. As soon as it was dark enough, tue operator turned m the water and tna lights, and th« now began. The scene was most picturesque. A ircle with a radius of 100 feet had jee roped off about t..e fountain, both aide was the great arch, looming up white and ghostlike, ana on the other he dazzling cluster of arc lights high up on the big water tower. Shortly after 8 o'clock there was a iound of rushing water, and high into he air rose a great column from the center of the fountain. Then about its sides rose other and smaller columns hat fell toward the cent.er in graceful :urves, all of them dazzling -white. The operator pushed the buttons and he water became brilliant reds, greens, blues and golds. The colors ;hased each other and danced as the ipouting streams tootf on different .orms. Then a new element came in to add ts bit to the picture. From the high rater tower on the hill came the fierce, white rays of a searchlight. It would strike the kaleidoscopic fountain and iy to beat down the colors there. But .he colors refused to be beaten down, and the searchlight would seek for other prey. Sometimes it would light lull on the face of a baby in a peram- aulator; sometimes it would dart up the little wooded i~~ to >.ae left of the jlaza and disclose to the public gaza lome fond spooning couple. Then it would be turned down the bicycle path and make the planet-like lamps dwindle into insignificant and twinkling stars. All this time the fountain was giving forth its jets and colors in a thousand different forms. At 9 the waters stopped flowing, and the trolley cars and bicycles and carriages took the iroivcl home.—New York Sun. B«p*zti Hot Calm.

The ex-member himself is no longer an active tenant of the room, having bean elected to a highly honorable plaoe, and so. in his absence, one ol the associates determined to dispose of the books in the simplest manner known, aside from total destruction. In short, he determined to give them away. Even that method he was afraid might be a little difficult to carry out, but he went to a neighboring tenant, •who is clever with the marking brush, and said: "Won't you kindly fix me up some kind of a card that will attract attention to a lot of agricultural reports I want to give away? Something sort o' startling. 'Inside History of Sunday Baseball,' or 'Who bribed the Councilman?' or anything that will draw a crowd." "All right," said the neighbor, and at once set to work. In a few minutes b« had a card ready. It was a work of art; in large and ' picturesque capital letters, and this is th« way it read: -O BUT THEY MAY NOT HAVE COME TO STAY.

As yet ouly a very few of the most pro nouraced of our angloma.niacs have A Huiijrry Horse. In a Wisconsin town there is a handsome bay horse, owned by a lady who usually feeds the animal herself. One morning, recently, she went to the stable and found the horse not in his itall. After a search of some momenta he was found in the liay-loft. Ke undoubtedly had been seized with the pangs of hunger during the night, and, breaking his halter, had ascended a Sight of narrow barn stairs to the Boor above, where he was able to feast to his heart's content. But how was the horse to get down again? The -woman was unequal to the emergency, and sent for a veterinary surgeon, who proved to be a man of resource. Ha threw the horse or. its side, chloroformed it. and then slid it downstairs on a plank.

He loaded the office boy with volumes, and put the card on, top. then the boy went down 'the sitairg and laid the books along the curb with the card leaning against the pile. As he started upstairs for another load, he noticed that a small crowd was gathering. When he reached the sidewalk with a second load there wasn't a book left of the original lot. The card was lying on the walk and perhaps twenty people staring at it. As he advanced a number of them grabbed the books before he could lay them down. They met him at the foot o£ the stairs when he appeared with the third load, and a swaying mass of eager loiterers pressed forward for more. They were on the stairs waiting for him when he brought the fourth load, and over the heads of the crowd he could see people running from various directions to find out the cause of the trouble. Well, the books were soon gone, and even the card went, too. The lawyer who planned the scheme was delighted. "My first annual free book distribution was a rip-roaring success," he complacently remarked. lontton Guyed Her. Mrs. Kilpatrick, a well-known American cyclist, upon her return from a recent visit in London, said: "It is impossible for a woman to ride comfortably in London unless she keeps to the parks. Rude boys, men and women stand on the sidewalk and. shout all sorts of outrageous things as: you pass. They cry out 'You ought to be ashamed,' 'You are a disgrace to the: country,' 'You are no lady.' Mr. Kilpatrick and I rode down town one day. I wore a skirt only sis: inches from the ground. When a rain come on I dismounted and took my wheel under an awning to wait until the shower was over. Somehow I lost Charley in the crowd. Over 500 people gathered to look at m*. They blocked the pavement and actually stopped the traffic in the street. t called a policeman to protect me, and he said,"'You've no business to oe down here on a -wheel dressed that way, and he stepped back in the crowd. This was enough for the mob. They began to guy me and I again called the policeman. This time he asked me how ons or two policemen, could disperse such a crowd, and I told him it -would take two New York cos* less than two minutes to scatter them and if they could not do it alone they would call for help. Then I tried to make my way into the street to a cab, and the men and women poked um- brsilas and canes at my wheel, trying to break the spokes. I was almost killed by a wagon, and the drivers of the first two caibs that passed said they were engaged. The third had a man in i:. but he saw my predicament, jumped out and told me to get in. As he lifted my wheel up, the mob tried to pull it out, and he raised his cane and threatened to strike the next man who dared to touch it. They followed the cab for two blocks, yelling like savages, and in th« heart of London." Another Atcliison girl, with cut- glass tastes, has become engaged to a tin-cup young; man.—Atchisoa (Kan.) Glob*. Ambulance CLjwers In St. Ixraia. There are about half a dozen men In this city who make a living in rather a peculiar manner. They have :ome to be known as "ambulance ihasers," and one or more of them can be found on the scene of almost every accident. The occupation of the '•ambulance rhaser" is rather a new one. although the methods he uses have been used to sain the same ends for years back. The "ambulance chaser" is in the employ of some lawyer who makes a specialty of handling damage suits. When E.n accident of any sort happens the "ambulance chaser" is right :o the front in'the crowd which gathers. He gets the name and ad- Jress of the person who is injured, or if the victim is so badly injured that lie cannot give his name and address the lawyer's agent follows! the am- oulance to the dispensary- where ho usually finds a wav to learn what he ivishes. In a few days he calls on the person who was injured and explains to him what a good cs.%e b? has if he will sue damages. If tie injured person aas not sufficient rseans to prosecut* the suit or shows a disinclination to io so. toe "chaser" gets in his fine work and offers to find an attorney iFho will take up the case and carry it Jirough to completion for a percentage >f the amount gained as damages.

It is not worn in France, nor yet in Berlin, which is a center almost as important iu the way of fashion as Paris and quite as much so as London. The hair is worn much as it has been for the last couple of years, each lady adopting the style best suited to her face while still following the general plan. The chignon requires that tbe> hair be drawn back from the face and rolled over puffs at each side. These are then carried to the back of the head and lost under the beaver tail shaped wad of hair which bangs down the back of tbe neck nearly to the nape. How ugly and awkward tbe hair looks done this wav I cannot depict with a pen DOS being an artist, but I advise ladies to wait awhile before adopting it unti] they see whether the style "takes." There are so many prettier ways of doing the hair that it would be foolish to adopt oue so exceedingly ugly, at least as long as one cau help it. Some ladies are parting ' their hair on one side and go:ne directly in tbe middle. Opera gowns are now among the ae- ceissities of life, tbongh fortunately those made for that avowed purpose are available for many other functions.

Originallj the ceremony of Twelfth Night was religions. That is altered now, but the choosing of a king of the feast by means of a bean hidden m a Twelfth Night cake is still the principal feature oi' the festival. Tbe king rules and directs all games and amusements, and each guest must be a devoted subject. At the coming festivities the king will be the person who finds in his portion of cake a silver dime, aad his queen will be the guest lucky enough to have tbe piece of cake containing a silver thimble, the cake being passed and each person cutting a portion. In this connection a writer in the New York Sun gives an old recipe for Twelfth Night cake. This recipe will make a very large cake, bnt it can be divided •when so large a loaf is not required : Wash 2 caps of butter and beat if until it is creamy. Add 4 cnps of granulated sugar and the grated rind and juice of a lemon. Stir into this mixture the yolks of 12 eggs, putting in one at a time, and beating it weJl before adding the next one. Dissolve a teaspoonf ol of soda in 2 cups of milk and gradually stir into the other ingredients. Add 3 cups of sifted flour and then part of the whites of the dozen eggs beaten to a stiff froth. Add 3 more cups of flour, with 2 teaspoon- fnls of cream of tartar, and then the remaining eggs, and last 2 caps of flour. Flavor with wine or a little brandy. Put the cake misture into a large round pan lined with buttered paper. Place tbe silver pieces on opposite sides of the cake and stick a broom splint in tbe side of the cake to show which is for the men. The old cnstom was to put in the cake a bean and a pea to determine who should be king and qneen. Put the pan containing the cake in a moderate oven and let the cake bake slowly at first and cover the top with a paper if it should brown too rapidly. When the cake is baked, it should be covered with a thick white frosting, ornamented around the upper edge of the cake with a wreath formed of the frosting and candied violets, rose leaves and cherries and diamond shaped leaves cut from thin slices of citron and stuck here and, there. A toy Christmas tree about six inches high, such as can be bought at any Boy •tore, should be placed in tbe middle of the cake.
