Breasted Jacket tot Street Dtestlng a frotmfir Olrl—*r»te* ot tint totfc Jlodcs. Iftdlcs* IVfttfefprooi Cloak. HIS IS A STYLISH d protective top garment for a rainy day. Thelongcoat is shaped in skeleton style, having no sleeves, but large openings at the arm's eye, so that the f ashi enable sleeves can be readily passed through. The back is held in position by an inside belt fastened around the waist, extra fullness being added at the center by a reversed box plait below the waist line. The loose, fitting fronts close invisibly in center, with btittons and buttonholes on a fly. The cape is of ample length to afford thorough protection to the dress sleeves, and the collar can be turned up to better shield the throat. Straps effect the closing of the cape to a desirable depth in front. Deep pockets have serviceable overlaps that protect the contents. Navy blue waterproof twilled cloth is here depicted, but the cloak can be made from any of the many styles of cloakings now specially manufactured for this purpose. — New York Ledger. Girl's Fancy wool plaid in mixed colorings — tan, brown and red — made this pretty dress, the pointed bertha being of light tan faced cloth, covered with a braided design in narrow red soutache braid. The pattern consists of a plain fitted body, that closes in center back; full gigot sleeves, that are arranged fronts, the tigh^ dtting back being laid in coatplaits below thft waist line, each completed with (tingle buttons in true tailor mode. Tib* very full topped sleeves are desigfted to accommodate comfortably the voluminous dress sleeves, linings of silk or satin facilitating the adjustment.— New York Ledger. Musht-oom To make mushroom ketchup, the mushrooms require to be broken tip and sprinkled with salt as they are gathered or bought; they are left for six days, stirred and mashed every day. They are then squeezed and pressed through a sieve or strainer to extract their liquor, which is boiled until reduced to half the quantity: a little spice is then added, a blade of mace, a morsel of root ginger, one half ounce each of peppercorns and allspice to each pint. The ketchup is then boiled again one half hour, and poured into a basin; when cold it is strained from the spice and bottled for .use. The recipe does not contain nearly so much spice as is usually allowed; on this account the flavor of the mushrooms is better preserved, and the extra boiling will tend to make it keep nicely. About There is a manufacturer at 87 South Fifth avenue — a Berlin man, Mr. Alfred Kohn — who makes for the fine jewelry and lamp trade in the United States and Canada a special class of lamps, which, owing to their originality in combination of vases and metal mountings, seem to be ideas token out of the region of fautasie. There are, for example, horns mounted into iron banquet lamps: oak, mahogany and vases mounted into either iron or brass lamps; fine empire style lamps, etc. In fact, his lamps are justly classed among the most beautiful and exclusive styles ever produced in this country. Specimens may be seen any day on exhibition in prominent "Broadway and Fifth avenue stores. His lamps are furnished with all the leading cen- GIEL'S DRESS. wVer comfortably fitted linings; the charmingly shaped bertha that relieves the severe plainness of the waist, and a full round skirt of fashionable length. The mode is suitable for any of the new autumn dress fabrics in silk or wool, the ever popular serge,camel's hair, tweed homespun or cheviot, that are at once stylish, serviceable ( and durable, taking precedence for every day wear. Made of plain material and decorated in any preferred style with braid, girnp or ribbon, this will be found a simple and tasteful design for either best ov school wear.—New York Ledger. Indies' Double Breasted Jacket. The illustration p*ortrays one of the and very comfortable autumn ter draught or duplex burners in the market. Foreign Fancies. The names of many of the fashionable tints mentioned together sound delightfully autumnal, Chrysoprase green, reddish amethyst, tangerine, topaz and maize, leaf brown, wood color, cerise, 'currant and royal rnative are only a few of the fascinating colors to be found on the •'palette" of Dame Fashion this season. Mink and sable will be the leading furs this winter. Ermine, fortunately, has had its day. Silver "Brownies," with enamelled clothes, are among the novelties in stick pins. Hand painted Dresden china button? look particularly well on Louis 3{V, suits, with a stock and lace jabot, "Bluet" has many sins against color to be laid to its account. Every impossible shade of light lilac-blue is now comprehended under this cornflower tint. "Irris blanc" is society's latest perfume, Jt comes in face and sachet powder and extract, and for those who like intense and cloying sweetness it is just the thing. A Pellclous Stvuce. Here is a nice store sauce to have in the house; good with steaks, chops, etc., ancl to fiayor gravy: Take » pini of walnut vinegar (what is left at the Bottom of pickle), boil it witl* shallots cut in slices, » Jtytle spice, such as peppercorns, inace &ncl cloves, a teaspoonful pf'salt and one hftlf teasp,csORful celery »eedj one quarter l^o«r is long enough for theboiUng.

The watch, moreover, can be loaded up with things which you want to remember, so that it will be no longer necessary to tie a string around your finger when yotli' wife tells you in the morning to bring home a dozen No. 13 needles when you come back at night. While you arc taking your breakfast" your wife can whisper into the watch, "Don't forget the tickets for the theater Tuesday night," or "Be sure and see about those things for baby," or "Drop into Smith's on your way to the ferry and get those dress patterns." You need not bother your head at all with these things, but when you have a moment of leisure during the day -just touch the button in your watch, and they will all come through a hole in the back. Of course you may forget to ask the watch what you are expected to bring back from the city and then there will be the usual disgust when you got back home, but you can tic a string around your finger to remind you that the watch has something new to toll. There are many ways in which this watch will fill a long felt want. It will save a lot of unnecessary troxible. When a man comes in to bother yo- 1 * with senseless chatter, you can put your watch to his ear and squeeze out, "Thio is my busy day." You can load it up with imperative demands to get up in the morning, so that when you are lying in bed the watch under your pillow will reproach you with laziness and generally indulge in sarcasm of your own, until you are compelled to geb up to keep your self respect. The watch, by means of its phonographic plate of sensitive rubber, takes vituperation and cuss words as readily as it takes the hours of the day, and these can be turned on in a torrent at any desired horn 1 . If you want to ask impertinent questions in an indirect way this watch will be very useful. "When are you going to pay me that money?" it might ask of a friend of whom delicacy might prevent your asking the question directly. You might show it to Mr. Croker as an interesting new invention, and when he put it to his ear it would ask him: "Where did you get it?" Gentlemen of a hilarious disposition could load up this watch with all the new songs of the day, When apparently busy at your desk you could thus listen to "Sweet Marie," and during a prosy sermon in church you could go the whole round of the popular airs while seeming to lean upon your hand. Lovers carrying on a clandestine correspondence can resort to the watch. It might be made to say, "Wilt thou be mine?" or an -!l'.ipement could be arranged with the phonograph attachment made to say, "At the hour of 13 the rope fodder will be in readiness, and we wt ; ll. iiy from our persecutors to hap- plvew." It has been pointed out that b,7 co;aceuling the watch about his person a man could actually talk through his hat. The phonographic watch is the invention of M. Sivan, a French watchmaker living at Geneva, and is described by the Scientific American, It is made by inserting in the watch a thin, flat sheet of rubber, upon which the words are recorded on the principle of the Edison phonograph, the groove running spirally from the centei-. THIS TALKING WATCH, Along this groove a smaU needle trav* els as the watch keeps time, and when the spring is touched the needle is made to react upon a diaphragm in the case, thus reproducing the orgina} sounds. The sy&tenj makes no addition to the size of the ordinary watch, and it is said to possess many advantages over the old-f ashioned repeater, -New York World, It is claimed that the treatment of. some o| the vegetable textile fibres is rendered much more practicable and,. economical by the use of a new scut'eh" ©r, recently invented, Mainly, there are foup revolving bearers, arrange^ two oa each sid,e of the machine, th*« members, of each. p,aiy revolving is poeite directions, &nd P» the top of machine are two ribbon, or bw& sj(.\vp, arranged with thejy teeth ujpv>wd traveling coptinuously alojng tVs and around the ends pjf the 4 wisp of fl^ is taken laid across the eaws^o»e end projects si4e «A it is travel o| the saws, dfteettoh, by tvfclefo thai fend of *H&|( is lyeateft; Airtcl at the etiti of tit* ftiaehinfe the tmtittle is 'detached ftwM the safic teeth afc.d transferred tty hand to th6 other side df the ffi&ehlne.ivliefr* the jiatt of the bundle hitherto tih* touched goes thrbugh & simile* cess. ot teiecttic The iiiitstratioii, Fepreseftts a adsjrtsd id* ittseftittftlft el8fetfi6 to discharge the littes whett an sive current passes, as in cast* of a lifhttting' strike or When a etittdiict«t carrying a heavy current for lighting or po-frer purposes crosses a telephdne or telegraph line.

For Coloring Fabrics, Accounts are given of a new and beautiful material for coloring fabrics, dyeing tannin -antimony mordanted cotton a turquoise shade — a very greenish blue — and represented to be fast to light, alkalies and acids; the fastness to washing, even with strong alkalies, is also said to be excellent, the, color going slowly on to the fiber and dyeing level without difficulty. On '• silk, which is dyed in a curdled soap bath, shades of great brilliancy are obtained — in cotton printing,. likewise, the turquoise blue is distinguished by its fastness ia light and washing. In this connection the quantity of tannin employed affects the shade of the color in so far as that, if a small amount of tannin be taken, the sjiades are l^luer, while a larger amount produces greener shades; the fastness of the color lake ic, however, increased, by the addition of larger quantities of tannin. Knglnoa of the Latest Cruiser. The extent, and power of machinery ' construction are peihaps nowheie more wpnderfully exhibited than in the working 'equipment of the latest government cruiser. There are sixty- one separate engines, not counting cylinders, which would run up to 120 for main, auxiliary and pumping pur'-' jppses. The low. pressure piston is 92 inches in diameter, has an area of 46 square feet, and an initial load of 100 tons. The condenser tubes, if placed end to end, would .form a tube thirty- three miles long, and the cooling water passed through these tubes equals 30,000,000 gallons per day, or enough to supply a large city with water. The main boilers,, if placed, end to end, would form a tunnel 156 feet Jong and ?.»rge enough for a -train or cars to pass through, The heating surface is to one and one eighth acres, Automatic Publication, An improvement of practical conveni-- ence in textile machinery is a mechanism for automatically lubricating the spindles of apparatus employed in cap- spinning and twisting frames. In this arrangement a bracket is provided having in its center a wooded bush, the position of the bracket being over the ispindle or tube and x'esting upon the lifting rails, while at one side of the metal bracket is a ciip shaped projection .oouimunicating by an opening with the fcpjjidle, The lubricant is poured 111*0 the cup, and passes through the oppn- Jng to a washer resting on the lifting rail and Tinder the bracket, so that, as the rail rises and falls, the washer, 'which" js saturated with lubricant, supplies the necessary oil to the spindle. TO prevent the bushed , bracket turning around with the spindle it is furnished with a lug arranged to be placed on one side of the lifting rail, ( Three Sewing SjteeMwes In QitO, One of the most pevfect as well »« pne of the most useful sewing machines I have noticed is the Pomestip, made 'by the Domestic Sewing Machine company, 19 Bast Fourteenth street, Jfetv York, Jt c»» be altere$ to mal^e but* by the additipij pf A pr'eaa lie made attaching » jstopie called a <»}po,per," Jt i s impossible tq ge\y, CofiftpfreetSd ftif il used to drirtf tain Paris street ears, uvef too patents *tef8 {sstted fot the afplifefttioti of electricity to hdllSti* hold Us66 in'1893. the light efBeiency of Eft ltt6Afi* descent lamp is about & pet- cent, the other 95 pe? centreing dob^ei-ted into I'lie itosectfols of thS fafftief I Ire td be 6*t>ei-iiH6tttally Studied ifl a neW department of the Pasteur institute in f at-is.

A string bean with* a blue pod was the. sensation of the recent Crystal palace fruit show. The plant was ob* taiued by accident from a lot of French seed, but the grower has now fixed the type and can produce it reg* ularly. The West End street railway of Boston has put in service to special trolley cars for the use of parties wish-' ing" private accommodation. They nre furnished with easy chairs, and will traverse any city trolley line at any hour of the day or night. The experiment of cooking dinner (for 7,500 men belonging to the guards •in a single field kitchen at the Munchcbcrg station near Berlin, took place the other day before the troops left for their headquarters. The affair was completely successful. Thirty-five hundred weight of beef and 1,500 weight of hams were cooked in eight iron kettles, with a capacity of 040 liters each. Four tons of coal were used. • LAND FOR FRUIT. Colorado and New Mexico Will Beat California and Oregon. Colorado and New Mexico orchard- ists are exempt from all disaster from drouth such as has disminished the crops and profits of eastern fruit growers this year. 'In the far western arid country, where growers must depend wholly upon iri-igation for 'moisture for their orchards, the expense of ditching is compensated by the. good result that they can absolutely regulate the water supply the trees shall receive. The soil of the Rocky mountain slopes is peculiarly adapted for fruits, grapes and berries, and the people of those regions more and more are entering upon this branch of farming. In New Mexico orchards are being planted on a. scale rivaling those of Calif 6rni a, with the advantage'? that a finer quality of fruit can be raised to be sold in a much nearer market, A scheme is now under way to plant a 10,000 acre orchard in thePecos valley,, near Roswell,/witli the intention that 3,000 acres of .trees' shall be set out this year.. A Missouri firm will plant 1,000 acres of land /to apple trees . this year .in Chavez county, and in several places in that county the preparations for setting cub hundreds of acres are being made. The shipment of grapes to the east from the upper and middle Eio Grade valleys has: for. years been an important and increasing item of railroad freight, and this fruit commands a price usually a. half higher than the California grapes. : ^ . The Place of Torment Of bilious people is chfefly in ttie region of the. liver, but wttli the extreme discomfort located there are associated sour stomach, yellowness of the skin and eyeballs, morning nausea, an unpleasant breath, furred tongue, sick headache, and irregularity of the bowels. For each and all of these 'unpleasantnesses, Hostetter's Stomach Bitters is a swift and agreeable remedy, It Is greatly preferable to any vegetable purgative or drastic mineral cathartic. • Such pseudo-specifics usually dp more harm than good, In pja^ larial complaints the liver is always' involved, For such disorder, as well as for rheumatic and kidney trouble, nervousness and debility, Hos* tetter's Stomach, Bitters is a benign remedy, Physicians strongly commend it for its prompt titude and thoroughness, and professional approval Js fully justified by public, experience durjng more than a third of a century, We are never willing to admit that there is insanity in toe family until some member of it makes a will we don't like.
