With tho progress of interior electric lighting and tho gradual disappaarance of gas illumination in theatres, hotela and private dwellings has como a new industry. It might almost be called an art, or at least an ally of an art, for it lias engaged the attention of architects, and has called forth some of the best efforts of artistic designers. This now industry i.s the manufacture of electric light fixtures. Only two or three yearn ago it was in its infancy. Today it has reached an importance almost as great as electric lighting itself, and has attracted millions in invest raezit. The gas chandelier is daily receding to give place to the electrolier and if the present rate of progress ia maintained the electrolier may be seen in tho dwellings of persons of very mod- srato means. It may be tho climax in the advance which made the candle and the oil lamp give way to gas Until11888 all the finer class of electric light fixtures were imported chiefly from Prance. American companies manufactured a class of plain goods which failed to satisfy the wealthy, and were too costly for others. All this is changed now. The American architecture and the American Artist have taken up the matter of interior electric lighting, and the electric light fittings have become a part and parcel of architecture. The fittings are designed to 6nit the style of the architecture, and they cover many periods. * ART IN THE [JUSTNESS.

Agencies are selected in various parts of the city, such as drug stores, groceries and other reputable places, where adhesive labels of different denominations and colors, resembling postage stamps, will be sold. Lards corresronding; in color with the fibels will bo furnished,, upon which the depositor will affix the labels as they are purchased until the twenty spaces on the cards arc filled. For instance, suppose that a depositor determines to save five sents pei- week. He is furnished with a sard corresponding in color with the five 2ent labels. He purchases the label weekly nt the nearest agency, and affixes it to the card When the card is full it is worth $1, and is then sent to a savings bank for deposit, when tho amount is entered upon the usual deposit book. Labels will be for various canvenient denominations, making the cards when filled even amounts as §1, $2, $5. and BO on. It is expected that the agents will do tho work as a labor of love and public benefit, though small commissions may be paid. This system brings the savings bank to the people who need it most. We have five-cent savings banks now, but comparatively few people will take tho trouble to go to the bank to deposit a few cents. It will be a very easy matter, however, to go to the nearest drug store or grocery and purchase the label, and the method involves no risk, except that of keeping the deposit card safe until it is filled.— Springfield Union.

I did not undeceive them until near the end of the journey, when a big, brawny son of the Highlands, whose rich brogue made his wearing kilts unnecessary to designate hia nativity, laid his hand on my shoulder and said: "Excuse me, American?" "I have that honor," I replied, whereupon the Scotchman, who it seemed had overheard some of the conversation during the journey, wagged his head knowingly and smilingly said: "I thocht I could forcspy in ye ah bit ' the twang-g-g.»— Chicago Post. but ahr-r-ent you aim tho „„„,. ,, . —,- y to sacrifice everything except home for right principles in school.

Now Mr. P. we don't chum or ever did that there is such a tiling as agreement in the way of disposing of sentences. It is not often the case that two persons will agree on all grammatical points. JN"O two get exactly the same thought from the same sentence. If a legitimate reason can be given for an analysis, that analysis, it another person can substantiate his with equally good reasons it is aJso correct. You ask for Beed & Kellog's plan. Here you have it: It is a simple sentence, of which scn- 1encK is the subject, modified by the adjective modifier this. This sentence .is tJie complete modified or logical subject; is is the predicate, modified by the adverb not; difficult, is the attribute completes the predicate and belongs to the subject: difficult is modified by tlie adverb too, the prepositional phrase for mc^and the infinitive phrase to analyze: /or introduces the first phrase and roeis the principal word.; the infinitive phrase is equal to the prepositional phrase tn anab/sw and answers the question, In what respect is it too difficult; therefore the infinitive phrase is used adverbially and modifies the adjective difficult. Is too difficult for me too analyze is the complete modified predicate. A. M. SISVEK. Honors to H Dead Dog. I saw a queer corpse in the undertaking establishment of Lewis Jones, on LaGrange street, a few days ago, queer even in that grim receptacle. On the embalming board lay the body of a pretty brown spaniel and near by a handsomely constructed hardwood box, elegantly lined, which was to be doggie's chamber when planted in the cold, cold ground. The animal was the pet of a rich lady, who, when he one day became ill, sent him to the dog hospital, and when lie died had his body cared for with as much tenderness as though he were a human being. Doggie was shipped from here to the lady's former lioine in Maine, where the animal was interred with full honors.—Boston Record. A Poor Sportsman. We have all encountered him in the field, the man who howls like a maniac at his dog. It ia not because the dog is deaf, for even if he were there would be no need of the howling and shrieking, jut it is that the howler knows not a bit oetter. He has the notion that a hunt- jig dog must be worked like a sledge dog amid Arctic ice fields, and so he makes an Esquimau of himself every ;ime he goes shooting. And none of us ever yet saw a dog that worked any bet- ;er for the racket than lie might work, or might at least have beea trained to work, without it.—Forest and Stream.

Louis XIV, Louis XV, Louis XVI, the Empire, Adams (English style), Colonial (American) and the Nineteenth century revival of tho renaissance in the floral period. The materials of the fittings are chiefly wrought iron, brass and copper hammered. Three or four million dollars are invested in the business. The American companies, which used to inanufiu-t-re goods inferior to the French article, ;i re now consolidated, and many of the best French designers are employed by tliera. It appears just now that tho Americans are a little ahead of the French and English in this new art. But the American people are far from being convinced of this yet. The Vandorbilts and ruauy other of the wealthy Fifth avenue families have imported electric light fittings, and will have uo others. But it seems to bo only a matter of a few years more •When American art aud American enterprise^ will have overcome French and English ascendency. The fittings made today are as varied in style and far more artistic than the gas fixtures. They are considerably more costly, too. The costliest ever made was an electrolier, which now hangs in the drawing room of James Rothschild, of London. It cost $6,000. It is S3 inches in diameter, about 5 feet high, ami is made of gilt bronze and rocl: crystal. The design is of the Louis XVI period. Sixty-eight electric lights hang frora the bronze leaves, and the mellow diffusion of light is as remarkable as the beautiful design. SOME EXPENSIVE ONES. The cost of nearly all tho finer fittings mount high up into tho hundreds. One of tho prettiest is a wrought iron lamp with a dragon twisting itself around it and flames in the form of electric lights pouring from its mouth. There is one of these lamps in the residence of William C. Whitney, ex-secretary of the navy. Another is a cupicl holding a lamp made of hammered copper. Ten of these are in Mr. Whitney's house. One of the prettiest of the smaller fittings is a bronze fly, from the mouth of which a light is pendant. These flies are placed at irregular intervals on the walls, and make a curious and pretty effect. Cupids t holding cut glass balls, with drooping lamps of bronze, and containing twenty-four lights, are among the finest of recent productions. One recently made for a Chicago millionaire cost $4,000. For small rooms the favorites are little electroliers of gilt and white metal and oxidised silver or copper, with rose reflectors. The designs are numerous. One made of oxidized silver is a boy's face, with light shining from the mouth. Another of the same pattern has two lights coming through the eyes. Some of the three light fixtures are highly artistic. One of them, which is seen in many Fifth avenue houses, lias one light on a globe pendant from the center, and the others at the arms, with cut glass drops calculated to increase the brilliancy of the reflection. To fit up a large private house in the latest styles of electric lighting costs from 115,000 to $30,000, exclusive of the plant. Of course handsome fittings can be had for one-fourth of that amount, but those who want the "the latest" have to pay extremely fancy prices.—Chicago Daily News. G-O TO FOB ALL KINDS OF GOODS.
