SILVER AND GOLD.
Costly Designs In Tabic Furniture
Which Fashion Xow Sanctions.
Tlie common usage among wealthy
ersons of giving elaborate dinners
has brought about many changes and
many improvements in table ware and
the tlecoration of the table. Tho
change has been in the direction of
increased richness of effect, and is
marked by the substitution of mass
ive silver ware for the decorated china
, and porcelain which was popular for
The fashion of giving heavy dinner
parties seems to have been copied
from the English, and the prevailing
styles of silver ware are also copies
of old English models. Japanese
work, hammered work, and other
styles have had their day, and fash
ionable silversmiths now manufact
ure only imitations of the old Queen
Anne or fluted ware, and the re
pousse flower and leaf patterns of
English and sometimes French de
sign. Often the fluted and repousse
styles are combined, a plan which
jrives a verv handsome effect.
The old epergnes carrying several
dishes, to be filled with fruit and
flowers, and which obstructed the
view across the table, are entirely out
oi use. Candelabra, with spreading
branches, take their place. These
bear white wax candles, fitted with
small red shades, which, by an in
genious device, descend as tlie candle
burns down. A well-fitted table has
two candelabra and foursmall candle
sticks, each canning a single candle.
in the center oi the table is a low
silver dish, resting on a plateau and
intended for flowers. At the four
corners are four comports for bon
bons, and boyond the.e, at each end,
a larger comport for fruit. All are
covered with richly chased repousse
work, that on tlie comports being
composed of vines and grapes, re
lieved, perhaps, by pierced work.
The fluted ware is'simpler, but not
The closeness oi the imitation of
the old ware can bo seen by com
parison with a teapot at a John
Street jeweler's. It was made at
Edinburgh in 1717, nine years after
the introduction of teas into Great
Britain. Its age is determined by
the hall marks. It is repousse work,,1
out ot a kind lar interior to the work
now done in America. The art of
working in silver in this country is
much in advance of that in Europe.
There is now on exhibition at Tif
fany's a pitcher in repousse work of
marvelous finish. It is valued at
$500, and it would not bo possible to
make another like it in Europe.
The tendency of silver table ware
has been toward smallness and
compactness, and this has effected
the size of the smaller ware. Tho
butter plates, salt cellars, and iep
per pots are very diminutive, and as
a rule they are decorated in the same
manner as the larger pieces, although
there are many odd and striking
designs. A new style of salt cellars
is made in the form of a diminu
tive stewpan. Others imitate shells,
leaves, fruitSj and flowers. A
silver cigar lighter, to be passed
around after dinner, resembles an
antique lamp. It has a handle at
one end, and at the other end a wick,
which burns and sucks un alcohol
from tlie bowl. Pepper pots come as
mushrooms; salt cellars, as straw
berries and acorns, and the only
limit is the imagination of the de
signer. A leading house has a specialty in
the use of the Indian chrysanthemum
as applied to silver ware. It has a
very solid and ornamental effect.
They also manufacture sets of Indian
coffee spoons, like the apostle spoons
of old times. The tops of the
handles are hammered outinto shapes
that represent Indians going through
their various dances. The work ia
very delicate, and the ornamentation
on handles and bowls is copied from
wigwam decoration. These spoons
are inclosed in boxes covered with
deerskin, untanned. Other Indian
bonbon spoons have the 'figures in
bas-relief and richly colored with
enamel. These designs are distinct
In France the lea-cuns are some
times of silver, but this fashion is not
favored here, as the metal heats too
easily. Occasionally silver is used
for coffee-cups, and," when decorated
like the Niello or Tuba ware, with
black and red inserted metal, has a
pretty effect; but, as a rule, tiny cups
of richly decorated porcelain for cof
fee form a part of the regular silver
dinner set. An attempt was made to
introduce the French style, but it was
not successful, except for cups.
The substitution and use of silver
has been carried so far that there are
silver table brushes and crumb pans,
silver tongs for lifting asparagus,
silver fish knives and forks smaller
than those used ordinarily, small
silver butter knives for the separate
uso of each guest, silver call bells,
silver toasting and pickle forks,
silver bonbon sets, and indeed all
wood and mefal used at the table
and even china in France has been
supplanted b' silver. It is easily
kept in good condition, and readily
repaired, a good quality which fine
china does not possess.
The custom of making tea at the
table has been newly introduced from
London, and the silversmiths have
tried their hands at making very
elaborate tea caddeys. The majority
are in old English repousse work.
The lid is generally used to measure
tho amount of tea to be used. Fruit
plates and slavers in etched silver
are an expensive novelty. The plate '
is covered with varnishon which the J
artist etches an original design. It
is then exposed to the action of acid,
which eats into the silver only where
the varnish has been scratched away.
The result is that the drawing is re
produced in the most elaborate
manner, and retains the full spirit of
the original. Some of the designs
are of sporting and hunting scenes,
and tho drawings are clever. In
making repousse work, the design is
first snarled out roughly from the
interior, which is then filled with
cement. The chaser then finishes
the design from the outside.
Gold services are very rare, al
though they are very seviceable, as
they do not tarnish. Mrs. Catherine
Astor has a gold service, and tho
fashionable jewelers say they know
of other persons who have them, but
they decline to give names, as it
would be an advertisement to thieves.
Persons who fancy the gold color use
silver gilt, which, when heavily
plated, wears well, and looks well on
a snowy white table cloth. There is
something too royal about a gold
service to suit most Americans, and
perhaps its security would be the
cause of too great anxiety. The
larger pieces of a silver service in
repousse work cost from $1,000 a set
upward, and a gold service would
cost fully sixteen times as much.
Such a service is not kept in stock
anywhere in this country, and would
only be made to order. N. Y. Sun.
"Tho Solitary Horseman.
It was a warm day. The earth was
as parched and dry as the throat of a
tram i) at sunrise, and the onlv cloud
visible was a foggy mist of dust that
overhung and crept slowly along be
mud a solitary horseman, who was
gradually passing from view with
about as' much celeritv as bad luck
leaving a poor man's family. The
heat was oppressive. The man on
horseback was in his shirt sleeves,
ami only wore ono suspender and a
billy-goat beard of saddish bleached
appearance. His manner -was sim
ple, and ho was perspiring, for the
day was sultry. The steed he be
strode arched not its neck with the
proud impatience of the charger who
scents the battle from afar off, but
the sway in its back made ample
amends for lack of contour further
forward. It was bulky of limb, thick
in wind, unfortunate in vision, and
far from hasty in disposition. It was
a horse that any woman could drive
with safety, if she had strength to
apply the whip with sufficient vigor
to keep the animal awake and in mo
tion. In short, it was a horse of
great reliability and most exasperat
ing deliberation of movement. The
man himself was very full-breasted
in tho back, and had but little of the
fashion-plate look about him. His
face was seamed with wrinkles and
also seemed wrinkled. Perhaps it
was. He wore a straw hat and blue
cotton pantaloons tucked tightly into
boots of cowhide that needed half
soling; but ho was himself a shoe
maker by trado and it mattered not.
His eyes were smaller than peaches
and larger than cherries. They were
of no particular color, and yet were
far from white, though ho was a
white man himself or passed for one
among people not overly particular
about such matters. His hair was
long and busby, and would have
floated in the breeze but for one thing.
There wasn't anv breeze. It was a
day of exceeding great warmth, and
oufliero -for such he may as well be
considered, unless somebody bolder
and better-looking should turn up
and claim the position found plenty
of employment for his hands in mop
ping his honest brow with a hand
kerchief of silken pattern and cotton
texture. But who is tho bold bucca
neer, and whither goe3 he on a day
of such reckless indifference of speed
that tho day after to-morrow is chas
ing him? "He is old Bill Jarvis, the
mail-carrier, taking his own time to

fact that Aunt Polly Barkins is burn
