The elevator boy in a certain Chicago sky-scraping office building was a genius, although nothing of the kind lad fver been charged up agsiinst him. When the fat—that is to say, stout, for only men and the lower animals are fat—when the stout stenographer on the ninth floor repulsed tie admir- tng advances of the elevator boy she did not know that She was laying a minp for the destruction o>f her peace of mind, if not of herself. The elevator boy brooded upon the (snubbing he had received and resolved that he would be gloriously revenged. But how?—as the cheap novels say. The elevator 'boy did not know at first, but the next time the stout stenographer entered his car to ride to the ninth floor an inspiration came to him. The inspiration came oil a Monday morning. At; noon of the same day, the elevator boy, shooting downward from the pinnacle of the building, found the stout stenographer waiting at the ninth 'floor to go down and get her cup of coffe-e and peach pie a la mode. "Nine, down!" piped the stout stenographer. The lift stopped, and with great dignity and politeness the elevator boy opened the door. The moment her foot pressed the floor of the cage the elevator sank two indies. The elevator boy closed the door without a word, a glance or a smile, and the downward journey was resumed. The three men who were in th-e dropping box, however, gazed about with a wondering expression on their faces. When their eyes took in the proportions of the stout stenographer a satisfied look came into their countenances. They understood why the elevator had dropped two inches under the pressure. The stout stenographer colored a rich, autumnal red and looked daggers, sa- bres, broadswords and other cutlery at the boy. He said no word other than "Main floor—all out!" After the luncheon hour the stout stenographer sauutered into the rotunda of the big building once more. She had forgotten the incident of the two inches. "Going up!" cried the elevator boy, and she accelerated her movement toward the lift. Four men and two women were inside. The boy again, with princely politeness, held Bad a Mind of HI* Owm. Captain Robley D. Evans, ot the United States nav% was a junior officer at the o.utbre k of the war, and as he was a Virginian his mother sent in his resignation without conisnltimg him The resign tion was accepted and young Evans was out of the navy, much to his disgust. He differed with bis mother sind her views, however, and being a dete dined young man. found a way to na e thi action of the d-partment rescinded. His mother did ncrt know that he knew nis own mind until after he had been reinstated in the service. CEAMP ? S^RIZE CREW.

She entered. At the pressure of her foot the elevator promptly dropped two inches. The four men, aroused from after-luncheon reflections by the sudden lurch, looked about inquiringly. They sa.w the stout stenographer and smiled. The two women smiled with smiles of even greater dimensions and duration. The boy was a hewn monum-ent of imperturbable dignity. The stout stenographer • glared about her. She hall suspected, but could not be certain. In the evening it was the same way. When the stout stenographer entered th« elevator to ride down to the street she gave it, a two-jnch start on the way. The other inmafes looted at hei rather sympathetically, and she knew they were wondering how in the world she'managed to stand the hot weather, but nobody spok». The boy was a pillar of icy calm. It was in this fashion that things continued for six days. She tried to catch the boy off his guard and slip into the lift when his attention was attracted to other things—the cigar stand, for instance—but all such endeavors were unavailing. That fatal drop of two inches always; manifested itself. She felt that she was a marked woman and the talk of the town. Once she resolved to walk up the nine nights of stairs rather than submit herself to the ignominy of that elevator: but by the time she had reached the fifth floor, disheartened and perspiring, she rang the bell for the lift. "He will not expect to catch me on this floor," she said. But he did. She stepped inside. The elevator dropped. An ill bred man. who pretended to sell wire fencing on the seventh floor, snickered. The stout stenographer turned upon him. but seeing the solemn face of the elevator boy, she remembered in time that she was a perfect lady. On the sixth day the stout stenographer capitulated. She caused this A/I 8i$ATB__A_ COFFIN. EXTRAORDINARY ESCAPE OF A FRENCH PENAL CONVICT. |>esperat« anil Injenioos Attempt of tb« Attasslii 1-upl to Cain Freedom—Escorted by Sharks, H. Paddle, IB a Sepulclw-I Canoe. The worst prison on earth is the pe- aal settlement on the lies du Salut, off -he coast of French Guiana, in South America. These islands are three m lumper, and are called respectively the He Royale, the He St. Joseph and the [le Du Diable. On the He Royale are kept the worst -riminals of France, those who barely ; s cape the guillotine. A life convict named Lupi, recently made a wond 6l fully daring attempt to escape from this dimdluJ penal island which came jurprisingly near succeeding. Lupi was one or the most notorious if the professional criminals ol Fans. His career had been full of burglaries, liehway robberies and probably mur- lers Finally, for he killing of an ac- -omplice, he was sentenced to the pe- aal settlement of the He Royale, for ife Lupi was possessed of extraordinary tudacity ami indomitable energy, and ilso of a reflective and observing mind. He had often been present at the £u- •lerals of his deceased comrades, cere- •nonies which were of a unique and special character. The dead convict is sewed up m a oiece of stout cloth. To his feet are ittached chunks of iron, called sinkers in nautical language. This done, he is placed in a coffin which has a movable end. . ... Instead ol placing it in the earth aft- »r the manner of ordinary coffins, this Dne is placed in a cutter, which goes Jut to sea. While the boat is on its dismal journey the chapel bell tolls slowly. At -he'distance of a mile from the shore ';he boat stops. Tlw coffin is lilted over •he stern oil the boat, the movable end « opened, and the weighted corpse jinks quickly into the ocean. ;•* -nis point the cutter goes about, lie bell ceases to t -11. and only a stir•in- of the. mud indicates that the iharks have discovered the gift mtend- id for them. . From the repeated contemplation of •his spectacle Con' ict Lupi drew conclusions altogether different from ihose. , He collected a store of tar, nails and •ow or anything hat would serve a similar purpose. Then one dark night ie sneaked into the coffin house. Lupi nailed down the movable end and then set to v.vrk to caulk up the teams of the coffin. He stuffed cotton, ivool, old clothing, which he had picked •o pieces, and oakum of his own prepa- -ation into the seams. He covered them with tar, and finally made the -offin fairly water tight. After this fashioned two -lanks into a form the Package- remember it It contains Witiain the past few years it has been no uncommon sight for Philadelphians to see gigantic tfhips of war B«sam up the Delaware, the mastheads decorated with up-ended brooms, and the smoke-blackened stacks adorned with mystic figures, all denoting successful trials against the watches of government experts and the wavea and currents of old ocean.

Their work, however, speaks for itself in the sharp ring of many thousands won in premiums for speed, a glance at the following table showing how well they h<ive worked and what their skill has brought into the treasury of the Cramp Shipbuilding and Engine company: Contract Speed.

Th<; days of premiums for speed in excess of the contract requirements have now gone by, and with their passing i<i probably shelved the finest crew of steamship men that ever stoked a stokehold.

This included a considerable quant ty of meat and. bread Hei had also a large stone bottle of water. These he placed care- tully in the coffin. Then he dragged his fearful craft with great effort to the water's edge. He got. into it, pushed it through the breakers and started on hia terrible iourney, perhaps the strangest that any man ever attempted. In the morning ae absence of Lupi was at once noticed at the Royale, but the idea that he ^ad escaped never sntered the official head. It was most probable that he had committed suicide but if not he was hiding in some dole where he would stay until hunger compelled him to come out. The missing coffin was not noted, because for the moment there was no need of one of those articles. In the meantime Lupi was making fairly sood progress at sea, though suffering terribly. But extraordinary ill luck befell the convict Lupi had passed beyond the marine limits of French Guiana, and was within sight of Paramaribo, the capital of the Dutch colony. This was the second day after the night of his start\ French schoon'.r, the Abeille. hail- in^ from Martinique, came that way. The quartermaster, looking to port, saw an object floating on the water, above which hovered a cloud of sea gulls. He used his glass and made out a long box. In add tion to the gulls he saw two large sh; -ks. whose fins appeared above the waters as they gli led along like riders ii, attendance upon a state carriage. Fro-n time to time they seemed to touch the £ides of the box. The sharks were waiting for something and the gulls were waiting for what they would leave.

The distinctive novelty ii> the making of cloth gowns at, the present time is in the cut of the skirt. The skirt is rather scant in appearance and innocent of any .stiffening at the bottom. Although simulating fullness when it reaches the ground, the skirt is guileless of gathers and fits very closely about the hips. The nevrert gowns have a small pad or bustle made in them, and in some cases there are also hip pads. Bodices made over the new corset present a lov bust and straight front, which may be stylish, but is fur from becoming. Lace is tised very much with fur, but there is also a mode of mixing chiffon to match the far in color that has a very pretty and soft effect. For example, gray chiffon is used with chinchilla, brovra -with table, black with astrakhan. The erect note which was discernible on all the millinery of yester year has departed. Hats, though still mainly trimmed at the side, are very little higher on the left than on the right, and they are now worn straight on the forehead, not slanted. Of coarse the absurd angles at which the multitudes elected to wear their hats during the siammer has Drought about this more sober demeanor. Embroidery in new and costly designs is a feature of the season's fashions. Padded flowers of silk are a feature in the latest modes of embroidery. They are made of glace silk, stuffed so that they are raised above the velvet or cloth to which they are applied. Chenille erubroidei-y and chenille in every possible -way that it can be used are decidedly in favor. Hand, embroidery ia silk, silver and gold thread is the chief elegance of trinjmine on the most expensive gowns. Fancy waists of silk or satin to vrear •with'cloth skirts are a.s fashionable as erver. For street wear tailor made gowns grow in importance as the season advances. An exceedingly smart costume in olive green faced cloth prored a charming contrast to the usual braided costume, with its trimmings of black satin rouleaus or pipings on blouse, coat and skirt An astrakhan collar finished this stylish gown.
