on many of the spring costumes. These
flaring effects are to go with tbe ever

Rounded revers and fronts are the
order of the day. Nearly all the dressy
jackets are made open front and the
space filled in with a soft front of lace,
chiffon and brocade.
One of the latest skirts is box plaited

trimmed with five strappings, which

bands of black chantilly. The sleeves

Snrensm That Failed.
A certain Englishman by birth who
Is an American by force of circum
stances has been In this country long
snough to absorb the American idea
Df humor. l.ast summer he was in
London on a visit and happening to
have business with a man on an up
per floor of a tall building took the
"lift" to reach his offlco. The elevator
was one of those excessively dellbcr
ite British affairs, and Its snail-like
progress annoyed the Amcrlcnnized
Briton. The only other occupant of
the car was a middle nged English
man, with a manner of peculiarly
English seriousness. The man from
America ventured to address him.
"I think I could make a great Im
provement In this lift," he said.
The Englishman looked seriously in

"Why," the other man went on, "I'd
make it go faster by n simple little ar
rangement. I'd stop the lift altogeth

The Englishman looked slightly

Sponges grow in odd, fantastic
shapes. Some of them have nn over
growth resembling huge warts. There
are some suggesting hands, hats and
figures of Idols. These are curiosities
and not marketable for practical use.
In trimming them Into shape many
small Bponges are made which are
used for children's Blntes, for black
ing shoes and in making paper. The
uses vary according to size.
"One of the Inrgest sponges known
Is in New York city. It is fan shape
and some three feet in diameter. For
practical use it is worthless, but as an
exhibit it is valued at $100.
The best sponges are imported from
the Mediterranean, although Florida
produces very fine varieties. These
vary in price from a cent to $20
apiece, although occasionally fine
specimens bring $00 a pound. The
best of these are used in surgical op
erations. Other sponges are the mandruka
batt. the elephant ear. velvet, grass
and sheep's wool, which is best for
washing. The chenp sponges are used
In washing carriages and by painters.
A Carinas Indian Cnntom.
In the original settlements In British
Columbia a peculiar institution occa
sioned gala times for the red men now
and then. This was the "potlatch," a
thing to us so foreign, even in the Im
pulse of which It Is begotten, that we
have no word or phrase to give its
meaning. It is a feast and merrymak
ing at the expense of some man who
has earned or saved what he deems
considerable wealth, and who desires
to distribute every lota of It at once
in edibles and drinkables among the
people of his tribe or village. He does
this because he aspires to a chieftain
ship or merely for the credit of a "pot
latch," a high distinction. Indians
have been known to throw away such
a sum of money that their "potlatch"
has been given in a huge shed built
for the feast, and blankets and orna
ments have been distributed In addi
tion to the feast.

The'subjcct of n now public building
to be located on the Bqunre hounded
by Jackson place, Seventeenth and II
streets nnd Pennsylvania avenue, just
north of the state, war and navy de
partment building, Is under discus
Blon by the senate committee on pub
lic buildings and grounds. Senator
Fairbanks, the chairman of this com
mittee, some time ago introduced n bill
in the- senate providing for a building
on this site for the departments of state
and justice. Thnt bill has been under
discussion, nnd it has already been de
cided by the committee that such a
building should contain offices for the
president of the Tutted States, so that
it will probably be styled the execu
tive, state and justice building.
The square Just north of Pennsylva
nia avenue, between Jackson place
and Seventeenth street, Is regarded as
admirably suited for n building In
which the otiiccs of the .president can
be located. It Is contemplated to con
struct between the building and the
White House a tunnel, so that when
the president desires he can pass from
his ollice to his home without going out
or doors. This tunnel will be lighted
by electricity nnd ornamented In such
n way that It will appenr, in fnct, no

An Unconventional Prcnidcnt.
The other day the president para-J
lyaed some old conservatives by being
seen in the street playing ball with
some boys. The president didn't know
who the boys were, and it did not make
the slightest difference to him. They
were hnving a fine time when he enme
along, nnd the sight of their joy was
too much for him. He promptly asked
to be let in, nnd the first thing the boys
knew they were playing bnll with a
president of the United States who did
not approve of the particular curve
they affected and began teaching them
a new one. For ten minutes he delight
ed them nnd apparently himself nnd
then went on his way, while the young
sters cheered him off.
it Is that sort of thing thnt astonishes

How He Fooled the Dor.
A gentleman who is fond of studying
wild unimnls in their nntural surround
ings once had nn opportunity of seeing
for himself nn exnmple of the cunning
for which the fox has become prover
bial. As he was standing near the bank of
a river one winter day, he saw a fox
run out upon the Ico and mnke straight
for a hole. At the edge of the opening
he stopped, turned, followed his tracks
back to the bank, ran down the stream
and pnused to await developments.
In a little while a dog came tearing
out of the woods, with his nose close
to the Ice nnd snow. He ran along the
Ice with his head down, following tbe
scent until he reached the opening. It
was then too Inte to check his speed.
no plunged Into the water and was lost
under the ice.
The fox meantime had waited in
plain sight to watch the effect of his
little trick. After the dog came into
view tho fox remained perfectly mo
tionless until he saw his old enemy
disappear. Then, with n look on his
face which seemed to combine n good
natured grin with n mild contempt, he
went nonchalantly off about his busi
ness. A Cnrlon Palm of South America.
One of the most curious pnlms in the
world is called the ita and is very
abundnnt on the banks of tbe Amazon,
Rio Negro nnd Orinoco rivers. In the
delta of the latter It occupies swampy
tracts, which are at times completely
inundated and present the appearance
of forests rising out of the wnter.- The
swamps are Inhabited by a tribe of In
dians called Gunranes, who subsist al
most entirely upon the produce of the
tree. During the nnnunl floods they
suspend their houses from tops of the
tall stems of the palms. The outer skin
of tho young leaves is made into cords
for hammocks, and the soft inner bark
yields u nutritious farinaceous sub
