NOTES OF SHIPPING. ITEV8 OF INTEKEST TO MARINKKS UATUKSt-u ruua all mooicces. Finns Have Been Changed. Harber Im? provements. Site Tor New Ship? yard. A Kecord Yetr.l At a meeting of the naval bureau chiefs in Washington on Wednesday it was decided to give the six new unpro? tected cruisers o? the Denver class pro? tective decks extending throughout the vitals of the ships and of at least two inches in thickness. This deck will run 102 feet fore and aft and extend well above and below the water line, so that on any roll a shot with a plunging ef? fect would strike the protection before cutting through into the vessel. The effect of the protective deck will be to practically convert the ships into what is known as protected rather than un? protected cruisers, and at least render them fairly safe from serious injury through projectiles from small calibre craft. The objection to protective decks were that they would necessitate changing the coal -and machinery arrangements, but it was ...

"In making up the committees," said Mr. Powell. "I have used my best judgment and endeavored to keep al? ways in mind the best interests of the city.

KOTES OF THE FASHIONS. Odd Bits of Information for the La. dies out the Latest Styles In Dress. The new lovely rose color called American beauty is a prominent shade among rich or dainty summer textiles and on French millinery in hats entire or among the striking accessories. Many dressmakers arc using ilounces cut straight from the goods, instead of the long-popular circular shapes cut bias. The reason is that on wash fabrics the former como from the laun? dry in better condition than the others, and on very light, airy fabrics they hang better, even when the flounces are first arranged upon the skirt. White India linen or Victoria lawn dresses have three flounces on the skirt, gradu? ated in size. They are each made with 1%-inch hem, with three tucks above the hem. India muslins of pale forget me-not blue are trimmed with deep cream-colored lace insertion bands and appliques.

In a half column editorial on why a collector should he received with the consideration due a gentleman in any other station of life, the editor of the Petersburg Index-Appeal makes the following sensible remark: '"Collectors are a very important part of the complicated 'mechanism of busi? ness.

BARROOM IN SUGAR-HOUSE. Beer Sold to the Employes at One and! One-Half Cents a Glass?Ont ?iders Not Admitted. 1 Jersey City has a curious barroom, conducted by the American Sugar Re? fining company in its sugar house. It is not accessible to the convivial stranger, and, although it has existed for 20 years, very little about it is known ?o Jersey City or the world at large. How the American Sugar Refining company came to embark in the saloon business is a story soon told. The sugar-house was formerly conducted by Mattheissen & YYiechers. Thesenior member of the firm discovered that his workmen, most of whom were Ger? mans, would drink beer during work? ing hours, and that many of them con? tended that a lack of their national bevemge seriously irupjUred their use? fulness. Owing to the intense heat maintained in the sugar house the men wear the least possible clothing while at work. When they wanted beer they had to dress themselves for the street. This, of course, took ...

REAL GAMENESS. pX&rY Gentlemanly Jim Fielder Fin i_. iaed'Off Dad Han. Srarsbal j/& Clantoc, i Tlie Fielders always bore the repli? cation of being the nerviest set of men of Silver City. The old man had shot some dozen in his time, although to look at him you would, never think him a desperado. The first son, Idus, had a record almost as good, while Jim, the most gentlemanly man in the dis? trict, could walk over any sober man in the west. He was a tall man, with mild brown eyes, and a quiet, refined face. It had never been known just how he came to be so feared. It could not be proved that he had ever shed blood. Perhaps it was the air, or the short way he talked. No sober man, the boys all said, would cross Jim for a moment, yet when Clanton came in to the bar that night he was not dead drunk. He was not sufficiently drunk ?to be denominated beastly. 'It was doubtless his fate egging him on. For he walked right up to Jim and started a quarrel. "Jim," he sa...
