Woodbury,of New York, known universally throughout, the length and breadth of America, and in addition to Qim- provlng complexions, be has been the inventor, as a surgeon, ot some of the most difficult operations known to science. These operations include the straightening of deformed noses making disarranged mouths symmetrical, and many other tacts of skill. The doctor has been highly successful, but does not hesitate to frankly acknowledge the help be haa had from others.

Lawrenceburs, Ind., Jan. 12. — Mrs. Catherine Aum, an old woman living •with an Invalid daughter near York- vine, during her daughter's absence attempted to throw slop to the hogs which the family was fattening, and she lost her balance and fell into the pen. The hogs immediately attacked her, lacerating her arm and breaking it, and biting other portions of her body. She would have been killed outright but for the family dog, a common cur, •which sprang into the pen and battled •with all his might for the safety of hie mistress. The barking of the dog and the snortings of the angry hogs attracted attention and Mrs. Aum was rescued more dead than alive. She was nearly denuded of clothing, and was bleeding from many wounds. New Wife Was Not Admitted. Lafayette, Ind.. Jan. 12. — Recently the Soldiers' Home trustees had an application for admission from a veteran ot more than GO years for himself and •wife, and the case was being favorably considered until It was learned that the marriaee of the couple had occurred only a short time before. The incident made it necessary to adopt a rule covering such cases, and it has been Jecided that couples who have married since 1S95 will not be accorded the privilege of the home. Only the husband will be admitted in such cases. Frotty Mlunle Ha» Grown Weary. Terre Haute.

In these bundles, therefore, if it is not inexpressibles it is a coat, and vice versa. The cheapest goods are made of light thin muslin or cotton cloth dyed black, brown or blue. Other colors are also used, but to no such extent as the three first named. The trousers are unbroken and are held in place by a string or belt. The coat is also a single piece and is fastened with little frogs. In cheap materials the frogs are plain cotton cord of the same color as tbe suiting. A costume of the cheap class costs usually 40 cents, but. sometimes it IP nrious lorrns of any fine goods lined with fur. The prices of these naturally vary to the greatest extreme.

T., Jan. 12. — A telegram received here at 6:40 o'clock last evening by the train dispatcher of the Choctaw, Oklahoma and Gulf -rail road, states that a band of IT) Seminole Indians are on the war path and are; leaving behind a trail of blood. A tele- I gram was sent by the railroad station agent at Earlbcro. The brie;: story conveyed was that the Seminoles were avenging the work of the mob of white men that burned two Seminole Indians at the stake on Friday last and that the infuriated Seminoles had already massacred twenty-five men, women and children. The station agent gave the additicnal information that the band started from a point six miles south of Earlboro. with the avowed intention of setting fire to Tecumseh and killing all whom they met, that the Indians were reported to have changed their course and were at the time of the sending of the message headed toward Earlboro. Thi; receipt of this startling Information has created intense excitement in South McAllister. Federal Judges Springer. Townsend and Springer, who are in the city, are anxiously a.waiting further news. Scores of people here who have relatives and friends :it Earl- boro and other points in that section are beseiging the telegraph office for news, but the agent has either left the Earlboro station to gather further information, or perhaps is slain or driven to seek refuge. St. Louis, Jan. 12.—A special to The Republic from "vTewaka, I. T. : , quotes United States Marshal Bennett as stating that while the Seminoles are greatly excited and the situation very threatening, no massacres have yet occurred German Exports to America.

A. Costume of the Cheaper Class Closil About Forty Cents, but a Keally Handsome Suit Can Be Had For Two Dollar Business Methods, Woman, lovely woman, is very much the same the world over. In every city of Christendom her eyes turn toward Paris and her thoughts to the latest mode of that illustrious capital of fashion. Iii the Flowery Kingdom they tarn to the great metropolis of Canton, out of whose workshops and ateliers come garments of equal style and splendor if not of equal grace and beauty. Ignorant male travelers to the contrary notwithstanding, there is fashion in the far east just the same as there is at home. A keen Chinese observer can tell even more from a woman's clothes about the wearer than can tie done at home. Little peculiarities invisible to western eyes reveal the province where the clothes were made; equally intangible things show her status and rank. I believe there are Europeans who have mastered these mysteries, at least I have been told so, although I have never yet met one. There are no women dressmakers 111 China. They are all men, and every on»i with the importance and arrogance of Mr. Worth of Paris. Woe to the customer who dare criti- cise their work or suggest improvements. So superior are they to the other sex that their clerks are men. There are any number of these establishments in the "city of Canton. When you have been to one of the great ones, you have been to all. In front of the house bangs a great signboard in scarlet and gold. It is a foot or two wide and reaches from the sidewalk up to the second or third story. The characters read: "Happiness and prosperity. The bouse of golden splendor, women's dresses." There are no show windows or casements of any kind. The entire front is open to the thoroughfare. There is a low and wicked railing across the entrance, however, which bids defiance to sneak thieves find compels ingress and egresa through a gate as narrow as the one mentioned in Scripture. When you pass this, you find yourself in a large and very neat store some 20 feet wide, 80 feet long and 15 to 20 feet high.

Nest in the scale is silk apparel This is what maketh glad tbe Celestia heart. The poorest boatwoman saves up her money cent by cent until she ha accumulated the amount necessary to buy a coveted silk robe. She will even wear a silk coat with ragged cotton trousers, but a silk coat she must have as an evidence of respectability. The variety of silks is something perfectly wonderful. You can get pretty silk from the province of Fukien in delicate colors, which makes exquisite underwear as well as fetching summer dresses, for 14 cents per yard. From this the pricea range upward. For 25 and 30 cents you can get handsome, finely finished silks that will last five or six years. Then there are bamboo silks from the north, which are so called because each thread is as strong, firm and durable as the fibers of that wonderful wood. There are Shanghai silks with a grain similar to our own grosgrain, but with a gloss like the finest satin. There are bright silks and dull silks, heavy and light, smooth finished and rough finished and in more colors than were ever dreamed of in the looms of Lyons. The moment you buy a robe the fact is noted, not alone in the salesbook, but also in what might be called an order book, and the very nest day a duplicate of your purchase is tinder way.

As to otbe:r styles, they remain upon tbe shelves only heaven knows how long. Such institutions as the bargain counter and sales of shop worn and shelf worn goods are unknown in the eccentric east. On the other hand, they have a custom unspeakably dear to tb.6 Mongolian mind. Toward the close of the year nearly every tradesman wants a large amount of ready cash. Sometimes it is to pay off the debts of the business and start the new year free and clear, sometimes it is for the charities and festivals for which the land is famous. They then mark down their older goods a reasonable amount, and when this does not bring in enough money they keep it up the first two or three weeks of the new year. In this way there are bargains and,of course, bargain hunters and bargain buyers. The business is almost entirely a cash business. Credits are given, but BO rarely as to occasion remark. The dealer is satisfied with a small profit, and neither tries to make a fortune in a single year nor to pose as a philanthropist like some of the goodly people of Philadelphia..
