A TRUE SHARK STORY 'PATHETIC ACCOUNT OF AN OCEAN MONSTER'S DESTRUCTION. Th al rend or th Little Bin and Gold rilot Tha Lamp of Fat Pork With the Concealed Hook Death bjr Torture With tha IncTlUbU Final. ' "How very hard it is to provide for young, fast growing family nowa days!" said the mother shark, turning, tor the unndrrdth time that woruuitf. upon her broad side in order to get a i better view of what might be stirring 1 above. For nearly a week she had been fastim? in fart, aver ainnA aha ranin in luirriedly at the close of a great feast ' upon the stripped carcass of a recent whale. There, by dint of the euergy of I) ex massive Bhoulders, her 14 foot of leugth aud fivefold rows of triangular teeth, she had managed to secure a re fipoctntilc y portion of the spoil for the rcpleiiitJiiug of her own huge maw as well as fur the up keep of the 14 shark lings that were now restlessly darting in and out of their cozy cave at the far end of her capacious throat. Within the immediate range of her glance a vast black shadow obscured a wide, irregularly shaped area of the blazing sunshine. It was so calm that the shadow seemed statiouary. In the direction of this cool penumbra her gaze lingered earnestly, fur hereditary in stinct as well as long experience gave her the knowledge that from the sub stance of such shadows came food drop ping down, varied and toothsome, ao tuully alive on rare occasions. Some what impatiently she wondered at the long time that her little blue and gold attendant had been gone. He was so seldom absent from his place between her eyes for a whole min ute that she got quite uneasy, but while the fidgeted fretfully, with many twitch ings of ber flexible "gaff topsail," back came the pilot fish in a tearing hurry. "Now, then, partner, move along, da There's a lump of fat pork almost as big as your head hanging over that ship's 6ttru. I dm't quite understand why it doesn t sink, but it is good. I nibbled just a crumb, aud you can be sure this time that it is no bagful of cinders like that nasty mouthful that gave you the chestache so bad this morning." The latter part of this en?rgctio exordium was lost upon mother shark, being drowned in the wash set up by ber great tail fin, which was going in grand style, starting her off at such a rate ,that two or three stragglers of the fam ily had to skip like shrimps to get in doors before they were left behind and lost Straight as an arrow to the mark went the tiny guide, keeping just iu front of his huge friend's snout. Together they swept into the shadow, where, sure enough, a mass of meat hung just below the sea surface, though gently lifted al most out of water every now and then. "Oh, do look, mamma! There's a big 'fish. Is he going to eat up that pretty little one, do you think?" "Oh, no, my little man," struck in the mate, "but you watch him now 1" As he spoke the great gray body took a curve latterly, a dazzling glare of white appeared, and there beneath the speaker was a cres cendo gap in the smooth, livid under 'side fringed with innumerable points like chevaux de frise and as big as the gap of a coal sack. Around it the small pilot circled excitedly at top speed. Slowly the mate as gently slacked away, there was a gulp, and the big joint dis appeared. There was a flash, a splash and an eddy. Then the rope attached to the shark hook concealed in the pork groaned over the rail as it felt the strain. "Lay aft the watch," roared tbe mate, and amid the trampling of many feet, a bubel of directions and a tremen dous tumult alongside, through tbe writbingg of the captive monster, she was transferred forward to the lee gang way, where, by the aid of a stout watch tackle, she was hoisted out of water. "Don't take him u board," cried the captain. "JIaLe sncli an infernal mess if you do. Just BpnUuil yard him and let him go agen. " to a piece of aountling was got frcra tbe carpenter, pointed at both ends, about four feet loug. This they drove between her jaws from side to side. Another wedge shaped piece was planted diagonally down through her broad snout, the upper end pointing forward. Then they cut off the wide pectoral fins, letting the quivering car cass fall into the sea again by the sim ple expedient of chopping the book out. "What abominable cruelty," muttered a gentle faced man among the crowding passengers, as he turned away sick at heart. But tbe bustling seaman looked pityingly at him, wondering doubtless at bis lack of sporting instincts. Thug disabled, the miserable monster plunged blindly in uncertain directions, unable to steer herself, unheeding tbe frantic caresses of her faithful little satellite, who had almost exhausted himself by leaping np at her as she hung strug gling against tbe vessel's side. .Neither did she notice the puzzled, wavering movements of ber wondering brood, fco she disappeared from the view of the laughing, happy crowd on deck. But whichever way she rushed she always fetched up to the surface promptly, be cause of the vane in her head. Thus for a day and a night she fought aimlessly with all the forces of amazing vitality pent up in her huge body against these torturing disablements, until merciiul ly she tell in witu a couple of ravenous cougenera Scenting fresh blojd, they made for her straightway. Like mad things, they fell ' upon her. Long and hard they strove, tearing their way through tbe tough framework u.itil as sistance came from all quarters, and a motley multitude of various hungry ones cleaned up every shred of the wel come banquet, leaving only the deserted pilot to seek another partner.

MRS- HENRY GE0RGE' JR- Bride of th Kldenl Son of tha Great Kin (I Tai Leader and Kcononil.t. Miss Marie Hitch, daughter of Cnp taiu Ebentwr V. Hitch, !i55 Outarlo street, Chicago, on Dec. was married to Mr. Henry George, Jr., son of tho great single tax leader, at the residence of her father. The ajjtuif the groom was giveu as 85 aud that of the bride as 10. The wedding was a quiet affair, wing to the death of Mr. George's fa- MRS. IIKNItV GKOIUiK, Jit. ther. Immediately after tho wedding the couple left for New York. Mr. Oeorge is as talented as she is charm ing. She is a musician of more than or dinary ability. Iitr musical education she received at the Chicago Musical col lege, where she was awarded a diamond medal for her proficiency. She also takes a great interest iu politics and is much interested iu the work of her hus band. The bride is a typical southern girl, although brought to womanhood in the atmosphere of a northern clime. T . . ..a xier lamuy came irom isew urleaus about five years ago aud have resided on tbe north side ever since. Tho young lady first met Mr. George during the World's fair, aud an attachment sprung up, with the usual tinge of romance and sentiment. The two families bad been friends for many years. The young people corresponded, aud when last year Mr. George came west to make speeches for the free silver cause he be came a caller at the Hitch residence. The engagement was later announced. Chicago Times-Herald. Scop of the Woman's Club. The woman's club is of comparative ly recent origin. It is the outgrowth of the idea that through co-operative en deavor women may secure certain social and educational reforms that could nev er be accomplished by individual ef fort In the field of charity alone the woman's clubs have completely revolu tionized the old, wasteful and unsys tematic methods of dispensing alma, In the domain of ethics and public morals the influence of these clubs is distinctly felt in many communities. They have secured ordinances for the protection of children, for tbe suppression of vicious and degrading literature and for the punishment of cigarette venders who sell their wares to school children. It is in the field of general culture and popular education, however, that these clubs promise to be the most po tent instrumentalities for the uplifting of society. Having been granted the right to vote at school elections, the wo men have it in their power to securo through these organizations many need ed reforms in our public schools in tbe way of be;.tr sanitation, better school construction aud Letter teachers. It is to the ministry of culture that these clubs should dedicate their talents, their euergies and tLtir zeal. Chicago Times-Herald. What Good Society I. "The very best society is not compos ed of gilt aud glitter," writes Ruth Ashmore of "The jy;ciul Positiou of the Girl Who Works," in The Ladies' Home JoiTmul. "It is tLat circle of pleasant people who meet and visit be cause they are interested in each other. It asks of each member that she bring a pleasant personality if she wishes to be in and of it. The society recognized by the newspapers consists merely of a few people, who, having more money than the rest of the world, are able to make themselves more conspicuous, and so are kept constantly before the public. But all over this great country, in every city, town or little village, there is to be found good society, and it rests with the working girl herself whether she is in or out of it If she has tbe bad taste to prefer noisy people, whose idea of enjoyment is roughness, whose con ception of conversation is to talk scan dal, and who really have no reason for existing, then this girl will not only in jure herself by ber contact with such so ciety, but she will injure every other girl who works. People are prone to judge a great regiment by one member of it. Therefore it behoovetb the girl who works to go into the best society or to find her pleasures in ber own home." Women at Prlucetoo. Miss Elizabeth D. Mcllvaine, princi pal of Evelyn college, writes as follows to the Boston Transcript: "It is with great regret that I tell you that the opposition of Princton university to any work for the higher education for women in connection with tbe university has so discouraged the friends of Evelyn college as to cause them to think it wise to close the insti tution for the present, at least until i Princeton should come to a better mind. ! During the life of my father, the late president of Evelyn, liev. J. H. Mcll vaine, D. D., this opposition was in a .measure kept out of sight, though al ways a hindrance to the work, but since bis death it has become open and out spoken especially in view of a growing interest in the state of New Jersey in woman's work und expresses itself in the form of a fear that Evelyn college may detract funds from Princeton. Princeton is thus lcit the only great university in the known world which refuses in any form to recognize the ed ucational work of women." Harriet lleeeher Rtuwe'a lleauty. I remember once accompanying Mrs. 8towe to a reception at a well kuowu house in Boston where before the even ing was over the hostess drew mo aside, saying. "Why did you never toll mo that Mrs. Stowo was beautiful?" And iudoed when 1 observed her, iu the full ardor of conversation, with her height ened color, her eyes shining and awake, but flllid with great softness, her abundant, curfing hair rippling natural ly about her lvnd and falling a little at the aides (as iu the portrait by Rich-' mond), I quiU' agreed with my hostess. I Nor was that the first time her beauty' had been revealed to me, but she was' seldom soeu to be beautiful by tho great world, and tho pleasure of this rwogni-i tiou was very great to those who loved ' her. Photographs of her were universal- J ly unlike. Mrs. Stowe wroto gayly nt the mo-! mentof her first triumphal tour through England: "Tho general topic of remark on meeting me seems to be that I am not so bad looking as they were afraid I was, and I do assure yon when I have seen the things that are put up in the shop windows here with my minio un der them I have been lost in wondering admiration at the boundless, loving kindness of my English and Scottish friends iu keeping up such a warm heart for such a Gorgon. I should think that the sphinx in the London museum might have sat for most of them." Mrs. Field's "Life of Mrs. Stowe." Baltimore' Kalny Dajrale. The annual meeting of Baltimore's Rainy Day club was held on Deo. 3 iu appropriate weather. It poured in tor rents, but the women were happy. In short skirts, boots and leggings they braved mud aud rain, aud even those members who havo carriages at their command walked to the meeting. It was voted that the Baltimore rainy day skirt should be five inches from tho ground, and it was suggested that tbe club should extend its work to the dis covery of a waterproof cloak and hat, so that the umbrella could bo discarded. Committees were appointed to push the objects of tbe society among working women. Miss Mcllvain, the president, spoke of the movement iu other cities. The press generally, she said, had been kind toward this hygieuio movement Tbe newspapers of Chicago aud San Fran cisco bad requested photographs and in formation of ber past life, but she had not answered such letters. Of ridicule there had bn none. Ou the contrary, the club had received tho heartiest com mendation from physicians, who urged them to advocate short dresses for all street wear as a safeguard against dis ease germs. Men generally, she said, had not criticised tbem iu any way. Latdy Hom Molynea. The latest outcry in English society against American habits is that young and pretty American girls do not hesi tate to live by themselves, with neces sary servants, whenever they feel in clined and can afford it. They give din ner parties and balls, supper and thea ter parties, as if tbey were married women. The worst of it, writes a cor respondent of Vogue, is that English society acknowledges that there is a tendency to follow that lead, that some smart English girls have started estab lishments of their own, and that, strange to tell, they have not been frowned down upon by "certain aristo cratic, old fashioned and conservative families, " as it was expected they would be. An instance is given iu Lady Rose Molyneux, who gave a bouse party at Abbeystead, including the usual shoot ing party. Lady Rose being ber father's favorite daughter (the late Lord Scftnn ), at his death sho inherited an estatu in Lancashire with f ao.OOO to keep it up, besides (1 0,000 a year. Her house party turned out a perfect success, and her mother, Lady Soften, was present as her daughter's guest aud nothing more. W'alaU and Ilaaque. The plaited round waist and the full Russian blouse waist contest for favor with the numberless chio little coat basques, very short, very smart and very much trimmed. Sometimes we seo the basque portion cut in one with the waist and sometimes added on. In other instances, tbe coat or hasquo effect is confined to tbe back only, while the front is slightly pointed or quite round. The back is in one seamless piece, and is arranged in endless ways below tbe belt line. Short jacket fronts mado by leading French coatmakers open ou full vests of any soft material that gathers, plaits, tucks or can be arranged in ef fective surplice folds inside s'maro or tiny rounded jackets of some heavy tex tile. Exchange The Wearing of the ISlouae, The universal adoption of tho blouse is proclaimed by women at every turn, and this baggy fancy is varied to suit the material and wearer, with each one prettier than the other. For bouse and street wear they are alike popular, and one scarcely knows where to draw the line of difference between one and the tither, so alike are tbey in construction. Even the little bolero has a bloused vest, and, by the way, this dainty little jacket is quite as much favored this season as last, and appears on some of tho latest cloth gowns, and is so de signed as to show tho nnderbodice, keeping tbe blonsed front in plain view.

TJie maimer iu which I lie various ani mals which populate the toy Noah's arks children love are made is certainly novel and amusing. These arks mostly conio from Saxony, where armies of children are engaged in this employ Incut. The part of the work done on tho lathe, however, is intrusted to older hands. If ono take up a cow or elephant or horse from it Noah's ark, ho will hoo the animal is more or less wedge Nhapinl. This is because they are cut from a cir cular block very much like a cako baked in a mold, and each animal is merely a slice of tho mold. Taking tho elephant fur an example, this is tho manner of WOODKS F1.KP1IANT8. making: A cako or ring of pine wood some ten inches in diameter aud a little over two inches thick is turned ou the lathe. Theu by means of gouges the curves of tho animal are cut iu the top of the soft wood, and at the inner edge a projection is made to form tho aiii uial's head. Ou tho other side a deep groove is out to represent the opeu space between tho animal store and hind legs. An elephant dink will bo cut up into three dozen wedges, and theu tho child workers round off its angles. A sejuirate cake is made from which the trunk is cut and another for the tail. These are glued oil All the other animals are made in tbe same way. Chicago News. Aa Iu(dIoiu llojr. An ingenious Augusta boy has found a new way of putting iu electric wires that deserves to bo patented. His moth er had giveu him permission to have an electric light iu his room if he would put iu his own wiring. Iu order to do this it was necessary to carry tho wires from one room to another. How to do this iu a neat aud workmanlike milliner was a perplexing problem, but the young man was equal to it Ho be thought himself of a pet cat which was greatly devoted to him aud would an swer readily to his call. A gixsl stout string was attached to Kitty's tail and she wan put under the flooring aud call ed through from ono room to the other. With the aid of this string the wires were soon iu place and iu a manner, too, that would have done credit to tbe best workman iu the city. Bangor (Me.) Commercial. A Toy Waahlof Ontflt. Among the toys that caught the eye of au observer iu a show window was a little washing sot, which was novel to him if not new. There was a little tahlo and ou this a little brass bound cedar washtub, in which there was a little washboard with a cino top, corru gated liko any washboard. There was a folding clothes rack and alongside of that a little wringer, aud near that there was a little brass bound cedar pail. Standing ou the table was a little barrel of tiny clothespins, aud there was here also a small flatirou. All that was need ed to complete the outfit was a clothes line, and a piece of twine would do for that, and it could be hung across the room, and theu tho outfit for dolls' washing would bo complete. A Good futile. Here is a puzzle which you may try to see what you can do with. Tie u string about a yard long to a door key and tako the string in tho right band. Hold it so tho key will clear the floor four or five inches. If you will hold the string steady enough, it will begin to swing back and forth iu a straight line. Lot another person take your left hand in his, aud the motion of the key will cbunge from the peudulum- liko swing to a circular swing. If a third person will place his hand on the shoulder of tho second person, the key will stop. After you have finished eat ing your supper just try tho alsjve and then solve the puzzle.

Mr. House tells of aa interest ing meeting between liooth and Charles itcude and reports the following couver satiou relating to the appearance of liooth and Irving together: "Is it true that tho prices will be changed?" "Doubled, I bollova Irving says they must be. That is one of the risks siicak of, but ho is full of confidence. Ho does it more for my sake than any thing else." "Theu I hope it will turn out wolL What are tho indications?" "Very good, I hear. I cannot judge myself. The conditions are all diffuruiit from what I am used to," "I understand. We are too slow and thrifty, I suspect to run the swift American pace, let I can't sue why there should bo such au amazing differ elite in your theatrical business aud ours. Tho stories we hear of New York profits sound fubulous. 1 should say they were fabulous if I had not seen the re turns of ttullock'i when one of my plays was produced there. A hundred pounds a night is nothing to you, it seems. ' "Two or three hundred would net stuggcr us, " said liooib, smiling, "nor four or five for a very greut aud ocial attraction. For several years the pros pcrous houses in New York considered 11,000 a fuir average the year round. 'Stars' traveling through the country, for whom the regular price were raised, could aometimes draw much mom." "Were you at all prepared for tha lower receipts here?" "Not really prepared. I was told what to expect, but paid no aUtoutlou. Clarke said 1 should get nothing at tho Princess', but I did not take his 'noth ing' literally. I thought I might count upon 1,000 a mouth at the very worst He was right, however." "I can't make it out" said Reade. "Your theaters are not larger than ours, aud tho prices of tickets are about the same, yet I seo the Adelphi or the St James' packed, without about one-half the result that Wal luck's shows. It beats my arithmetic. You can't gut more people into a place than it will bold." "Wo do that, too, sometime," laughed Booth, "but, as I say, you must come and find out all about it for your self, Mr. Reade. Your audiences will be larger than tho halls can hold, so you can study tho problem under the best conditions." "No, no. You tempt me to my de struction." But the compliment greatly pleased tho author, who liked to heur snch things said, though ho affected a lofty indifference to pruise. Scolding I'nder Difficulties.

She wrinkled up her forehead aud at once made a series of remarkably swift movements with her nimble fingers. The husband, looking exceedingly apol ogetic mado a few motions in return. One of tbe guests who had noticed this little byplay slyly slipped out a bit of paper and penciling something ou it handed it to a friend.
