the apartments of bachelors are nearly
always pretty and tasteful, but seldom
tipenslve. Tho Frenchmen have a
great fancy for t 'reton hangings und

in their rooms are invariably good, but
the decorations do no' disply anything
like the magnificence ,at prevails in
the homes of New York's unmarried
men. I think that this is largely bc

roundings. I had breakfast once in
Paris with a man whose reputation as a
vtveur is more than national. His name
has been associated with those of a
umber ol famous women, but aaida from
this phase of his life he is a promoter
of cable companies, a mun Of title, a
member of the jockey club, and a
Parisian to his llnger-tips. He waa
just the sort of a man. in fact, that out
would expect to find housed In mag

in uu apartment on the first floor of u
big house on the Boulevard Haussmaii.
His stable w as in Hie roar of the honse.
There was a dm wing-room, a dining
room, two or throo bed-rooms, and
then a long passageway, at the end ol
which were the servants' quarters and
the kitchen. 1 he dining-room w as the
most pretentious room in the apart
ment. We took breakfast there at a
table that would accommodate about
ten guests. The decorations wore in
blue and gold. The table was oval, ti
match the room; the chairs WON oak
and the hanging! neither no, able nor
particularly valuable. It was precisely
like the Interior Ol any one of five thou

Yesterday, on the other hand, 1 met
a mnn on Broadway us I was walking

Prevention of Seasickness.
A fri I of mine was talking to Lieu

the other day about seasickness. Said
Lieutenant Uravens "When you u
aboard ship take a broad towel mid tie
it about you in such a wuy as lo com
press the abdomen, generally with tol
erable tightness. Wear this bandage
during the voyage, and I'll be bound
you will not suffer from seasickness.''
The gentleman to whom Lieutenant
Craven gave this recipe said to me: 'i !
