Photographs of a Spook.
A etrange case of spirit photography
occurred a few days ago in Los Angeles.
The lady who was the chief actor will
not consent to the nse of her name, bat
there is no question of the reality of the
event, and it is made all the stronger by
the fact that both she and the photog
rapher are skeptics of spiritualism. She
took her position in the gallery, and the
photographer threw his cloth over his
head to arrange the focus, when, with
an exclamation of fright, his head bobbed
suddenly out from beneath its covering
and he stared at the lady.
"Did any one pass behind yon just
"Why, certainly not," she answered.
He then took the picture and went
into the dark room with it. He came
bounding out in a few moments, and
with a white face and strange manner
said she must sit again. She complied,
and again when he proceeded to adjust
the lenses he could not restrain his ter
ror. His face became beaded with a
cold perspiration, his hands trembled so
that he could hardly proceed with the
work. Five times did he take the lady's
picture, refusing to give her any expla
nation of his strange behavior.
At last be told her she would have to
go to some other place he could not
take her picture satisfactorily. Then
she insisted on an explanation. He re
fused for a long time, but at last he
brought her five plates from the dark
room. In each of them by her side,
dressed in grave clothes, with out
stretched arm and beckoning finger,
stood the figure of a person who had
been very dear to her, but who had re
cently died. The lady nearly fainted
and denounced the thing as a trick, but
was soon convinced if there was fraud
the photographer did not know it. The
photographer developed the plates, and
the portraits of the living and the dead
are exact and startling.
The lady is not superstitions, but the
inexplicable ' affair has worn on her
nerves so as to render her seriously UL

The Growtu of Artlstle Taste.
As artistic taste in home decoration
gains ground the craze for novelty in
form abates, and people no longer pine
to transform innocent domestic utensils
into painted and beribboned mural
adornments. Dust pans and coal shovels
are noble in their way, and shine with
the beauty of fitness in the kitchen,
where their manifest destiny finds fulfill
ment, but let us see them no more mask
ing as photograph holder on the parlor
-wall. The decoration by needle or brush
now most cared for is less florid than
quiet, and is used no longer upon mean
ingless things, but is applied to articles
of real use in a house.
It takes fine taste to decide on the
choice of the pretty bits of daintily em
bellished textiles that are now provided
for the breakfast, dinner and testable,
but it is safe for a housekeeper not over
confident in her own judgment to con
fine her selection to things that are capa
ble of being laundered. For high days
and holidays diaphanous lace and shad
owy bolting cloth, and softly glimmer
ing satin table centers, and plate mats
with artistically painted flowers glow
ing upon their surfaces are elements of
beauty, and add luster to a stately set
ting forth of glass and silver; but at the
serving of human nature's daily food
linen, damask and like materials, with
pretty needle wrought patterns in wash
silks or linen, are by far the best and
most pleasing. Mrs. M. C. Hungerford.
Maine in Favor of the Women.
The vote of the Methodists of Maine on
the question of admitting women dele
gates to the general conference seems to
be all one way, or rather m the condition
where the few exceptions prove the rule
by showing that both sides are voting.
Romford Center is the last one to report,
its vote being 13 for and 1 against the
motion. The vote of the ten Maine
churches now on record is 909 for, 11
against, the admission of the women.

lien sad Bones FsU 11 Feet.
Jamas Wilson and John. Martin, resid
ing near Edwards ville, went to New Al
bany recently to procure a coffin in
which to bury James Rooth. On their
return from the city the heavy rain
storm came up, and the sky became so
dark that they were unable to see the
road ahead of them, and they trusted to
their horses to take them safely along
the dangerous highway.
At the point where the storm overtook
them the road winds around the high
hills, and in many places passes near
high precipices. The rain was pouring
down in torrents, and it was only when
the lightning flashed they were enabled
to see the road at alL
Suddenly there was a brilliant flash of
lightning, followed by a deafening peal
of thunder, which stunned the men and
seemed to stagger the horses. Before
they could recover from the shock the
horses and wagon fell over a precipice,
and all went down a distance of 110 feet.
Some men who were passing heard the
cries of distress and went to their assist
ance.' They found the men and the
horses and wagon in a deep hollow,
more than one hundred feet below where
the road passes the top of the precipice.
Wilson was almost unconscious, while
his companion lay near him bruised and
bleeding. . One of the horses was dead
and the other so badly crippled that it
had to be killed. The wagon and the
coffin were both smashed to pieces.
. The men were gotten out of the place
and taken to their homes. Wilson is the
most seriously injured,' and it is thought
he cannot live. Martin's injuries are of
a serious nature, and his recovery is a
matter of considerable doubt. Louis
What It Costs to Live In a Hotel.
The boarding house habit seems to be
continually on the decrease in New York
and new restaurants spring up in every
direction. As soon as a new hotel with
gorgeous appointments is opened hun
dreds of the curious in matters gastro
nomic go thither to dine. As soon as a
fashionable ten story apartment house
is opened there are scores of families
eager to pay high rates for its shelter.
The hotels this season are unusually
crowded and prices for permanent lodg
ing are enormous. A man of my ac
quaintance recently asked the proprietor
of a well known hotel on Fifth avenue
what would be the price per week to
himself and his family four persons in
all for a moderate sized suite of rooms.
The price named was nearly $300 a
week. That was an old established
house, however. The , new ones are
charging less for the purpose of having
all apartments ' occupied before May 1,
when new contracts with lodgers will be
made. New York Star. - v
The Browning Society Still Lives.
The flyaway, squibs on the decline of
Boston interest in Browning that have
appeared, in certain papers chiefly in
the funny columns could not be better
refuted, if they were worthy of refuta
tion at all,, than by the gathering of
Browning lovers at the Hotel Brans wick.
Over 150 members of the Boston Brown
ing society came, together in the large
parlor of the Brunswick for the first
meeting of the eociety af ter its summer
recess, and had an interesting and en
thusiastic meeting. There was a brief
business meeting at which eight new
members were elected.
The society has taken up for its enter
tainment and study this winter the
great poet's longest and most elaborate
work, "The Ring and the Rook." Bos
- Polled s Tooth for a Princess.
Dr. William C. Bosweil, a young and
skillful dentist, who, coming from Balti
more, located in London last spring, had
the honor of pulling a tooth from the
royal month of the fair Princess Maud
of Wales last week. It was a wisdom
tooth and it hated to let go. , The prin
cess screamed, like a" locomotive. Dr.
Bosweil got 10 ($50) for the job, and of
course the advertisement is a priceless
one. As fob the royal tooth, the doctor
has mounted it and enshrined it in a vel
vet case. Eugene Field in Chicago News.
The Medical and Surgical Reporter is
authority for the statement that from
Jan. 1 to Sept. 1, 1890, 62 children 46
boys and 10 girls committed suicide in
Berlin. Of this number 24 had attained
the age of 15, 14 their 14th year, 9 their
13th, while 7 were only 12 years of age
and 1 had not attained the age of 7. In
most of the cases the immediate cause
for the act remains a secret, but it is
supposed to have been due to exceptional
severity on the part of servants or teach
ers. The Trouble with s Pipe.
The rise in cigars is producing a resort
to the pipe. The smoker will probably
reconcile himself to the difference, but
the one behind the smoker will lament
the change. When you smell a cigar
you smell that cigar only. When a pipe
