saj Sometimes a Senator who does not
approve of secret sessions rashly gives
away all he can remember of a session.
The journal to be printed will show
how near right the reports that leaked
out alxmt secret sessions during the
war were. The theory of the Senate
in making the record public now is
that no harm can be done after suffi
cient time has intervened between the
events which involved the names of in
dividuals and the present. There are
a good many now living, however,
who will bo affected in a very lively
'way by a publication of the secret pro
ceedings of the Senate as recent as
1869. The work is to be thoroughly
indexed, and each volume will contain
five hundred pages of the journal and
about a hundred of the index. There
will be six of these volumes. Half of

A Fashion That Promises to He-rome Pop
alar With Smal!la rarents.
It is a notable fact that the fashion in
the names of women has very decidedly
changed of late. Instead of long favorite
diminutives of Mamie and Minnie, and
Birdie, nml l-arrie, and Lily, and Lulu

Is now the style to bestow upon little

Moreover, these are iven their full

Three pretty little baby girls, we
know of. will jrmw with the plain
name of Margery in all its rotund full

little blond-haired damels are named
respectively IMrothy ami Lli.abeth, in
all their length and breadth all nick

forbidden bv their mother. Another
little tot Is dubbed Marguerite, and woe
lie to them who attempt lo use any such
nbbreviaaion as Maggie or Daisy or
Itita. Mr. Whitney has expressed her
preference for "Il.irothy" a the nam"
of the Cabinet baby, instead of Frances
rolsonu as asiuouueed.
The wife of the President objects to
iteing called by her baby name of Frank
or Frankie, and writes her n:im in full

fahi::i thus set has Itccn generally
adopted. And it i not only sensible
and dignilied, but useful and nppro
pi iate. to incorporate a woman's maiden
name with her married name, since it
maintains her identity and keeps her in
recognition by those who knew her best
under her old name. Miss M tud Howe,

anv case its works were not of such a
character a to lit it for its new position

he hard lesson of defeat, the French
Government at once set to woru to sj
the new frontier into a thorough state

iriginally laid down by the engineers
?harged with the task in 1871. Money
nas not been spared. It has been spent
lv millions, and now, after the labor of
sixteen years, the work is done.
Probably so vast a scheme of military
iiigineering was nevoid before planned
.tnd executed in so brief a time. The
French engineers have not been con
tent to erect upon the new frontier
three or four first-class fortresses to
serve as points of support for a defend
ing army. They have closed it with s
double line of works, linked these to
gether by an elaborate system of rail
ways, and, besides rcfortifying Paris,
they have constructed two other great
fortresses ia the heart of France to
serve as bases of opeVations for her
armies if, as in 1870, the barriers nearer
the frontier were again pressed by in
vading armies from beyond the Rhine,

The Marvelous Phonopore.
There sems to le no end to the
marvels of electrical science. We have
long known that, inexplicable as it
seemed, messages could lesent through
a wire in opposite directions at the
same moment. But now we have Mr.
Laugdoii Davis utilizing for telegraphic
pnroes a form of electric force which
can Ihj separated altogether from the
ordinnrv electric current, and which
can pass freely through insulators im-
uissable y currents. The new instru
ment, termed a phonopore. can be at
tached to any ordinary telegraph line.
as-was done a day or two back in the
cae of a line from London Bridsre to

Ntssible to send a phonoporie message

operators, who could continue all the
hue. to work the line from either end.
or at anv intermediate point, and in
both directions. Moreover, when the
ine at either end was disconnected, so
that there was no closed circuit, and
telegraphic messages were therefore
ntirely impossible, the phonopore

Adulterated Spices.
"I know a man." remarked a gentle
man this morning, "who is so consci-
ntious that, after starting in the spice
business at considerable expense, he
sold out at a loss rather than continue
manufacturing concern that could
only lxmade profitable by adulterating
the manufactures nnd selling impure
goixl. There is uore adulteration in
spices, he told me. than in any thing

agent is also a business in itself. Why,
it has not Ix-en long since there was a
mill over in Camden where fruit

manufactured piopared cocoanut. sent
their cocoanut .hell, which were then
ground into powder ami used for adul
teration. I believe the method is to
liiul out what you can get lor your
spices and then adulterate them so you
can make a profit at the figures named.

are usually made to correspond with

The Art of Adapting the Prevailing;
to IndisKtoal Kr.nlrcnr.ta,
The dressmaking of to-lay is very
different from that of a few years ago.
It is now the work of an artisL Every
seam, every curve aud line , must- bo
perfect in Us form, and be on the latest
approved mode as to shape and garni
4 nre. but the individual iigure must be
at it lied as a whole, each Kiint sepa
rately, and the chosen style a laptd to
the form. Neither can the same style
ofdrajwy be adopted by all jiersoin
and equally lKoomiugreiilts expected.
It is the succt'ssful adaption of prevail
ing modes to individual requirements
that entitles modern dressmaking to be
elapsed among the fine arts. The new
est modes allow no darts to appear on
the ontside: thoy are made in the
lining. however. in the nsnat
way, and the pliable outer material is
stretched and molded to the figure over
the fitted lining, which gives a bias ef
fect to the lower parts of the fronts
that is strikingly noticeable when the
goods is striped or plaided. Waista
are made ns long as the Iigure will per
mit and are thoroughly boned, so tliat
even a suggestion of a wrinkle is
avoided. In addition to the usual
complement of whalebo.ies many
dressmakers add short ones over the
hips: one placed diajonally from the
front seam of the side gore commenc
ing alxmt three inches above the waist
line and reaching to the bottom of the
baque at the back feani of the side
gore, aud another one placed over this,
so as to form an X. This keeps the
basque smooth over the hips, and
sometimes a second X is made on the
side f rm. The basque, with a long
pointed front and well hound over the
hips, will give a long-waisted effect
to the figure. o this must
lie considered in reference
to its beoomingness. Shoulder
seams are placed ou the top and ex
tended only to the point of the shoul
der, and the arm-holes are shaped and
the sleeves fi.ted with the grsatast
nicety. Necks are still worn very high
and collars artaJiroad and fit closely.
When the vet or plastron is made on
Hie liftsque the collar fastens on the
side. MoHere effects are shown on both
vests and plastrons, and they are often
made of an entirely different material
and color from the rest of the dress. A
vest of pink crap? is set on a costume
of heliotrope faille, and a pale blue
moliere is effective in a dress of dark
bine. Two jshad-s of green may h
combined, and cream can used with
almost any color. The majority of
dresses have a close sleeve, with a
simple trimming at the wrists. Rib
bons are used in profusion for orna
menting dresses, and promise to be
still more extensively employetl as
thinner materials are assumed. Brook

Concerning Drilled Wells.
A drilled well should be made deep,
that it may hold considerable water. If
not. it may too easily Ix? puruped dry.
Moreover, the fine sand, generally
present, works its wavviot only tilling
up the lower end of the easing, but
when the pump pipe is set low, and. is
pumping fast, some of the line sand
will be pumped up. and lodge in the
valve, soon causing the valve to stay
partly open, so that the pump will not
hold water, b:;t must le primed for a
new start. If the well be drilled deep
after water is lirt reachi-1. a space can
be allowed for tilling upt-and the pump
pipe need not lrf" placed so near the
bottom. But there l less danger of
filling up if the well lie thoroughly
cleansed or pumped out after being
sunk to the proper depth. This work
properly belongs, to ihe men who drill
the well. andshould never lie omitted.
A great deal of Ihe floating sediment.
if not removed then and there, will be
a source of trouble ever afterward.

When the Cuckoo Cries.
In Northumberland one is told if yon
are walking on a hard road when the
cuckoo first calls, that tho ensuing sea
son will be full of calamity; to be on
soft ground is a lucky omen. In the
Maritime highlands and Hebrides, if
the cuckoo is first heard by one who
has not broken hi f aL some misfort
une is expected. Indeed, besides the
danger, it is considered a reproach to
one to have heard Ihe cuckoo while
hungry. In France to hear the cuckoo
for the first time fasting is to make
the hearer an idle do nothing for the
rest of the year, or to numb his limbs -for
the same period. There is a simi
lar belief in Somersetshire. In West
phalia the peasauts on hearing the
cuckoo for the first time, roll over and
over on the grass ia orde. to insure
themselves against lumbago for the
rest of the year. This is considered all
the more likely to happen if the bird
repeats his cry while they are on the
ground. CJiieago Xetr.
