.. Forty ballet girls, the pick of thq
Parisians and the choice production of
Vienna, arrived on American shores
last week in the Teutonic, and were al

a relaxation of rules owing to the
change In the administration, or It

tract the attention, though of the Cau
casian, race, than one colored girl got.
We refer to the Princess Kalulani, the
claimant of the throne of Hawaii. Shi

It is said she looks upon American
"through English eyes," which is I
fault she may overcome. The youn.
lady of color Is In the hands of Engltsl
people, and they have struggled det
perately to prevent the beguiling In
tervlewers from reaching her roya
presence. We can give them the tli
that her great danger Is from report
ers of her own sex. A reporter, evl
dentiy a male, says of the princes;
"While of a somewhat darker com
plexion than Is usual In this climate
she Is not unatractlve looking. When
she appeared on the deck of the steam
ship as It steamed Into the bay she was
dressed In a close fitting black frocl
with a hat to match, There was con
siderable color In her cheeks."
Another reporter says of himself:
"The reporter was Introduced to Hei
Highness. She greeted the reporter
with a bright smile, which instantly
faded into an expression of sadness a;
she looked Intently at the floor, as if
in deep thought."
However, this does not seem to have
hurt the reporter's feelings. He goes
right on unabashed:
'The princess Is not beautiful, but
there Is n Indescribable sweetness
about her face, and a gracefulness of
manner that Is very attractive. She

feet are diminutive, and her Angers

How does this tally with the other
fellow, who says she wore a tight black
frock? Between seeing the two report
ers, did she change the "tight black"
for a "rough gray?" Very likely. In
both cases it is declared sufficiently to
be convincing that the graceful lines
on which she was built were delicately
disclosed. One writer says her hair is
so curly It Is almost kinky, which is
all right, though he appears in a spirit

WHEN COAL WAS FIRST USED.
Heard of as a Fuel as Far Back as 16C6
Preceded by Wood and Charcoal.
Though coal has been employed for
centuries In the manufacture of salt on
the shores of coal fields, wood had hither
to continued to be the fuel of the inland
salt works. The use of coal at Nantwlch
is mentioned as a novelty In 1656; and ac
cording to the Contemporary Review,
wood fuel and leaden pans were in use up
till 1691. In this era the sea salt manu
facture was in the senlth of Its prosper
ity. But the substitution of coal for wood
in the Inland salt trade, aided by the dis
covery of rock salt, which took place ac
cidentally in boring for coal In 1870, In
Cheshire, led to the gradual decline and
final extinction of salt manufacture of
salt on the coast. The only traces now
remaining of this once flourishing Indus
try exist In such names as Howdonpans
on the Tyne, Prestonpans on the Forth,
Saltcoats in Ayrshire, and Saltpans in
Arrant and Klntyre, or In the Scottish
proverb, "Carry salt to Dysart," synony
mous with the English "Carry coals to
Newcastle." In no branch of industry
was the scarcity of wood more keenly
felt than In the smelting of metalliferous
ores. Continued efforts to accomplish this
to accomplish this with coal began lm
mediately after the accession of James I.
and were persevered In throughout the
seventeenth century. But for a long pe
riod the new fuel proved highly Intracta
ble, and scheme after schemo ended In
failure and dlsapolntment.
After eighty years of oft-repeated trials
the tantalizing problem remained un
solved. Wood and charcoal still held the
field In the smelting furnaces and all
hope of ever seeing coal substituted for
them had well nigh died Out. In 1686 Sir
John Pettus, in his "Essays on WordB
Mutalllck," concluded his observations
regarding sea coal and pit coal with the
remark: "These are not useful to metals."
The unpromising prospects, however, be
gan to brighten. Immediately after the
revival of lead and copper mining, which
took place about 1692 having probably
been more or less In abeyance since the
interuptlons caused by the civil wars,
The fisher left his Bklff to rock
On Tamar'i glittering waves;
The rugged miners rushed to war
From Mendlp's sunless caves,
-these ores came to be smelted with coal.
The extraction of Bllver from lead with
cool was accomplished by a Mr. Lydal in
1697, and the same Individual seems to
have been the first to successfully employ
coal in the smelting of tin, In 1705. The
jrs of Iron proved more refractory, no
substantial and permanent success In
smelting them with coal being obtained
till near the middle of the eighteenth cen
tury, when the manufacture of charcoal
iron hud dwindled to very small propor
tionsIn fact, was dying out for want of
fuel. It then at length became an accom
plished fact at the Coalbrookdule Iron
works In Shropshire. The success was
at first ascribed to the Shropshire coal,
but probably the employment of a strong
blast hod a great deal to do with It.
From this the coal became the life of the
Iron manufacture. The cl-dcvant droop
Ing trade rapidly revived, and the latter
part of the eighteenth century saw coal
Iron furnaces In successful opperatloti
throughout the kingdom.
