for crude colors and loud display In those das when the multitudes ore beginning to learn tbe rudnm nts of artistic decoration it is more common td imdarooina failure m eff ct because of it monotony of color than because of an array of colors which os tbe French express it “swear at one another” It requires keen artistic perception and ‘ feeling for color” which few possess to arrange a great salon with it aried corners fittings and draperies so that it shall be exquisite m all its parts and still form a beautiful and barmomons w hole says the New ork Tribune It is well perhaps that wealthy people can hand over such rooms to artistic decorators who understand and ma- tenahancUdheirfelaUoA Mx each other 8uch rooms argooa in effect in proportion of coflrs£lo Abe sfeiLl of

method of the grand prima donna and thereby loso all her simplicity and at-trictheness It requires good sense almost akin to jgenms to u n derstaad your lnt itationst 4ut on iy as do e -ean you make a success of the furnishing of the simplest room or of any undrtaking simple or momentous Almost any woman can toll w hen her room is a fnilur' though she cannot always tell what element produced the result Kememlier the most important thing )n a plain parlor is simplicity Weid out all coarse decorations Do not above all things attempt to match all theshadca in the room Nothing is more funereal than a room in one tone Different shad s of the same color are necessary as a rest for the ev" and there should tie a harmonious r lief in a different color in fumishinga m w room it is alwa9 widest after selecting the wall decoration and floor covering to put in the room at first only what is essential and to add artistic bit from time to time as they seem to fit harmoniously into tb lr places Such a room as this is a growth from ourselves an expression of our own indn iduality In this gradual method of furnishing one is not likely to make blunders iu ornamentation COMPROMISE IN A FEWWEEKS-

the United States to all of them who are not citizens on their return As most of them had been demonstrating wbat an unhappy country the United States was it w as not thought that the rumor would affect them as much as it evidently did Foreigners who had been running down America in thtir speeches turned pale at-the Idea of not being permitted to go back to America and seemed suddenly to conceive an intense affection for that country British delegates seemed much amused at the situation and one of them remarked that it might be a good idea forFngland to follow suit TbeBeigiun authorities are much stirred up lest any anarchists should conclude to-take up a permanent abode in Brussels and tho police are keeping a vigilant watch on undesirable foreigners The English delegates that is those who are really British and not fugitives from continental Europe appear thoroughly disgusted with tbeir experience and have shown their determination not to take any part in the

away and the grafts applied A thin silk is bouud around the parts bolding the grnfts in their places and servuig to prevtnt putrt faction Frequently the grafts fail to attach and have to lie replaced by fresh ones This explains why 800 of them have nlreadj' been used This Is a most extraordinary number and jet many more are expected to be used before entire recovery is looked for tsterday six men

France alone there have been 12 lives lost and in both Fort De France and Bt Pierre to say nothing of the country distant there have been a large number of people injured At St Pierre five persons are known to havobeen killed but it is feared that this number does not represent the entire loss ol life in the capital - (kunmnnioation with the different ports of the island was never an easy matter and it IB extremely difficult to get detailed news at present- As tbe reports from the various sections reach St Pierre it becomes evident that the extent of the hurricane’s devastations has not been

safely be classed as stupendous About two-fifths of the island were under cultivation and the mountain slopes were covered with forests All the cultivation and all the forests in the path of the hurricane appear to have been swept away The numerous sugar coffee cotton ana cocoa plantations which have tell the force of the tornado seem to have teen utterly destroyed Houses and barns store-houses and stables have been crushed out of existence end a considerable period must elapse before the island recovers from its terrible visitation Every hour adds to the list of horrors already long enough to startle any body The governor and privy council assisted by the colonial coudcII are doing everything possible to relieve distress and to abccrtain the full extent of the calamity OUR
