A project that has been contemplated for some time by Mr. A. T. Drexel, the °hiulae phia millionaire, has been put I tical shape by the purchase of the Lells mansion at Wayne, Delaware County, and the sele tion of trustees and managers for the Drexel Industrial College for Women. The object of the institution is to instruct females between the ages of thirteen and nineteen years in all duties appertaining to the care of a household, and to teach such trades and businesse' as will make them prac,tlcal women, able to earn a respectable .livelihoed.- The benefits of the college 'are to be extended, first, to th da hter of clergymen,and se eun atshters of respe table parents,who, through e4Petsfaircqstaposs,are ablZe'to give the c r il4 r trainipkam edtpese 4 the u~ae new ug endowadeas b met and the esmest, it is $1,500,000.

Bad for Blonde Hair. Natural gas has made enemies among ladies. Blonde hair has had much to do with it. When burning gas is introduced into the same apartment with blonde hair and allowed to remain there, the peculiar aetion of one upon the other will develop. Some ladies are not attached to their hair; this is unnatural. Most of the fair sex glory in their hair: this is natural. But, whether natural or not, in either case, hair of golden hue always suffers from association with natural gas. *Notwithatandldh this effect, there is an affinity which draws the two togetýer, and blonde hair cannot escape the influence of its ardent plague when the two come into intimate relations. The elfect is imperceptible at first, apd it is only after a certain period of close asso. ciation that the pernicious and utterly demoralizing influence upon blonde hair is apparent and the hitherto unknown character of the deceptive gas is discovered. The insiduous influence seems to he exertive at first contact of gas with :blonde hair{ although not immediately noticeable u on the latter, and lays hold evee fibre of is4atire, growing pgooea assertive until the v-m sz*'y and the tork of rdifiR progreased that ory effort e hair is futile, and the a mplished in the t utterly blac character of the beaui tiful victim.

The examination itself is a most picturesque sight. It is held in a large enclosure at the rear ,of the palace grounds proper. Here on a large raised stone platform the Kiig sits under a canopy with his officials. The contestants display their power upon targets prepared, or they squat upon c ground by the thousand and write away industriously. Each writer is perhaps provided with an umbrella, stuck into the ground at a convenient angle for sheltering him from the sun or rain, while by his side lies his bundle containing food and writing materials, and his staff, for perchance he has walked many miles to be present on this occasion. The day is a general holiday at the capital, and nearly every house contains one or more of these contestants from the country, with their peculiar brimless hats and their little packs upon their backs. In about three days the decision is announced, and then the streets are made lively with the gay procession of the victorious ones as they parade the public ways, dressed in bright colors, wearing the court robe if sufficiently high rank has been obtained, and riding gayly caparisoned horses or donkeys, while a band of music precedes, followed by a gayly dressed dancer bearing the diploma, which he flourishes in the air as he postures in the presence of the crowd. Once having tecome a gentleman, the Core.n affects a peculiar slow swinging stride, and never breaks out into a rapid "go-as-you please" gait.. This peculiar stride sa .u;sed to be caused ly sitting cross legged so long in riding in the chair, and seeing it one at once infers, as is desired, that the person is a gentieman and accustonmed to being borne about from pace to place rather than to walking. Also the speech and manners change with the p;omotion to gentility. A Iorean can instantly <lete gentleman by his formu ofi speech. T he vulgar forms of the commoner are dropped and the more elegant expressions of the gentleman are cultivated. W~aile in the house the gentleman is strict in enjoining th: observance of all the respect due hint from his women, chi'dren, relatives and friecids. With the laboring classes there is mole home life they sit down together to eat their meals, anei they smoke when and as they please: while the son or wife of a gentleman may only smoke in his presence on special permi-sion. Tobacco is used universally in Corea. The child learns to smoke in lighting the elder's pipe aud he never forsakes its soothing 1 int.uence. The weed is never chewed, but is smoked in long-stemmed pipes º with brass bowls of generous caliber. Au ollicial of some rank uses a pipe with t a stem so loumg that he cannot light it if he wohili.except by tqmchuig it to a coal at some distance. When several of thse-e i dignita i's a-seunm ) in a room fer a smoke and rest-their tipe bowls in a cemnton tray at one side of t1.' roomthere is little space left for pr unena~i:uc.

Baggage ]tules for. Globe Trotters. Globe trotters should take a wa:ning from a decasion rendered by .'udge th Nehrbas, in the City Court. New York. a It was in the case of Downey against the w Inman t'teamship Company. The suit was one to recover $.-vo for loss of haggage by the burning of the Inman steamship City of Montreal. Louis .1. (.ranit appeared for the plaintii and Jlenry G. Pt Ward for the company. The plaintitf proved that he had lost Ill $-5)0O worth of haggage. The intense was that the company was only liable to the extent of A50, as on the ticket it was stipulated that it accented no further responsibility. Sure enough the tickets a of the cempeny did bear such stipulation. To strengthen the defence a e ti cision of the Court of Appeals, in the at case of Steers Against the Liverpool, New c York and Philadelphia Ste:un hip Com- tt pany was found, in which it was 'aid n concerning such tickets: " "'In absence of n fraud, concealment or improver practice, m the passenger is supposed to have read ' the terms of the ticket and acquiesced > therein." The plaintiff arguid that in his case there had been concealment, as t the stipulation was printed in stnadl type on the back, and his attention was not s called to it, but the ticket was given a to him in an envelope. Judge Nehrbas, b however, ch~arged the jury to find a verdict in strict accordance to the law, which they did, and Mr. Downey will * get but p.0. It is a fact well worthy of notice that t this ruling applies not only to steamship tickets, but to any contract which may be printedoR soaiway tickets, express or telegraph blanks. In England this 1 question has been agitated and settled by a law providing that any company to put such a contract on it4 tik~ r blanks must secure the aaa.T ture o the purchaser to the same or not binding.-Washington A Farmer's Success.

The Baby King of Spain. The only mona-ch in the world of whom absolutely nothing disagreeable 25 said, his Majesty King Alfonso, of Spain, is getting on toward his third birthday, and preparations for that event are being made and written about, though it is still several months off. A great many ] industrious writers and correspondents continue to pour out information regarding this important baby. One full-grown scribbler declares with the utmost seriousness that the little King is modest r and unassuming, and gives no thought to his exalted position or his future destiny, a truly remarkable thing in a boy thirty months old. It seems, too, that his long list of names, and the fact that he is officially known as the well-beloved son of the Pope, brother of all gentle- I 1 men who wear crowns and cousin to all Spanish grandecs, has hot inflated him with pride. The principal misfortune of 1 Alfonso's life appears to be that he has no one to play with him. No child could 1 be allowed to play with him unless it were old enough to understand how caretul it would have to be not to infringe the royal dignity, and besides, the Queen is afraid of causing jealousy by conferring upon any great lady the honor of having her childreu play with the King. The hardest work to which this young monarch is subjected is that of receiving his ministers, dignitaries of state, generals, grandees, and so forth, while sitting on the throne in his nurse's lap, a ceremony which entails his sitting still while all these things pass before him. At Wednesday's reception 2001 great men of various kinds turned up to see the King and bowed to him. One precious advantage this royal baby has over ordinary ones, which cannot be exaggerated, is that everybody who comes along and admires his yellow curls has not the right to kiss him.P/oadedphis Pres'. A Picnic in Samoa. The Samoans are as fond of picnics as any p litical or social club in New York. A select party of about a hundred people in all will arrange an event of this kind, inviting friends t ) participate, and often the o.ncers or men of the foreign vessels in the harbor are included among the guests. The picnic grounds, or waters rather, are in the mountains, about four miles back of the Apia. The central range of mountains in the island of Upolu, which is the principal, island of the group and the one upon which Apia is situated, reaches a height of about four thousand feet above the level of the sea. The foot-.ills,which rase gradually, one above the other, from a short distance back from the shore, are covered with verdure the year around, and here, in the cool forest, are found mountain pools of clear water, where the imnph.bious natives can enjoy themselves to their heart's content. Over the*i arc, precipitous rocks on the shqre the mountain streams have powed their waters for ages, until the surface of the rocks is worn as smooth as polished marble. Some of the male picnickers precede the main body of revelers to one of these pools. carrying the provisions, which include abounteous supply of fresh pork, chicken and tsh. When all have arrived they enter the water and amuse themselves by swimrming, diving and skylarking. ducking > cach otter's heads,or rising unexpectedly leneath some one whose attention is i cli1eried elsewhere. There is an upset, a scream of laughter and an escape. They arn exceedingly good natured and merry, never taking offence at the pranks and practical jokes of their companions. After about two hours of this sport they gather on the shore and partake of " a luncheon, and then again into the water they go like sporting seals. t An Army of Menials. A great many people have been sur- I prised, when atterdling the Vanderbilt entertainments during the past year or more, to notice the marvelous number of servants in livery. After the English fashi'n, this household army is usually drawn up in line in the hail and the guests pii. into the drawing room with a line of servants -on either side. The . uestion that naturally arises is, what in I the world does the family do with this armia of menials when they have no social allair on hand and are not enter - tamning. As a .iniile matter of fact it may b1 czplainelI that these servants are not regular \ anderbilt attaches. They are only taken on when the occasion reonires their services. In the language of the theatre, they are the 'extra ballet.' The liveries in which they apear are supplied themn by the butler of the house froni -n iimense trunkful of such garnentV which have been imported and are constantly kept on hand. The butler's wardroie contains fifty or seventv-five such suits of livery, so that no matter what the peculiarities of size and a among these hap-hazard domestics n~Is), it is a compartively easy thing them out.- Town Topics. 'Imitation Paper Straws. A asap i Washington has a factory which tur aout from 1,000,000 to 2,000,000 paper Imitation "straws" a day. TbM tells, without going much further lato particulars, which way the wind *aow the daily output is about 1, 000 of these straws.

THINGS DOCTORS DO NT .NOW. Their Ignorance Illustrated In the $.M.eon Peisoning Cases. There was a commotion among the doctors at a recent in )eting of the Massachusetts MedicoLegal Society, when it was found that reporters I for secn!ar newspapers were taking notes. Pa- c pers bearing specially on the notorious Robin- t son arsenical poisoning cases had been an- r nuunced. Dr. Holt declared that there was general ig- i norance of the syntptouts of arsenical piisoninY, r and claim 'd that inetaine of this ignorance tte Robinson poisoning cases had gone on without arorsing sispieioans on the part of medical men. t There were, he said, at least eight cases of a criminal poisoning; seven occurred within live f years, and in one family, and the other was that r of a relative. The cases were all treated by physicians of large practice, promin -it in the profettsi, I and yet no suspicion of arsenical potniitntg a was aroused until an ortanization in which the i victims were insured tried to determine by t investigation why so many persons died sudden- f ly in this family.

Beveral years ago an a tut of Dresden persuaded a locksmith there to give up his trade and becomnt an model. It was a good thing for the locksmith, who is now the famous "muscle man of Dresden," whose magnificently developed body makes him probably the most renowned model in the world. In order to preserve for future artists an exact duplicate of his extraordinary figure the director of the Royal Saxon Povzellanf6brik at Meissen recently invited him there that a cast from life might be taken of the upper part of his body. It is said that "his muscular development is so complete and d tained that even the Least and slightest cord of every muscle stands forth prominently, and his whole body looks as if it were woven together or plaited like basket work. His muscles have such a hardness that they feel to the touch as if they were carve l in wood. She forgot. A piecc dramatized fjom a novel by Miss Braddon was dauWbed by oversigiht.
