AN ADVENTURE IN JAVA How a British Midshipman's Peril Was Averted by a Malay Princess. BY IDA.N O'CONNELL. The anchor of her H. M. R. Pelorus had hardly found the bottom of Anjer Head one pleasant morning in June, 1865, before she was surrounded with a bumboat fleet. 'Nice monk, gentlemen, nice monk! Only one shilling! Mongoose, mongoose, lovely mongoose. Sweet potato, pomolo, banana, plantain, yams," were the shouts of the Malay boatmen as they clustered around the ship prepared to reap a rich harvest. And they were not disappointed, for the waist of the ship in twenty minutes looked like a vegetable and food market With monkey, mongoose and a lot of birds •with the most brilliant plumage thrown in. We were to cruise about the Straits of Sunda and the China seas in search of piratical junks, which were at that time very bold and troublesome in those waters. In the gunroom mess, which numbered eight all told, was a young Welshman named Daniels, who was my particular chum. We had ser...

14 FORT FRAYNE CHAPTER XX. June had come — a radiant June — and all at Frayne was joyous anticipation, despite the momentous fact that the Platte had overleaped its bounds and was raging like pome mad mountain torrent far as the eye could see. The Hats to the west of the post were one broad, muddy lake. The grassy bench beneath the bluffs to the east was partially torn away. Part of Bunko Jim's trontier stronghold still clung to the opposite bank, but some of it was dis tributed in driftwood long leagues down stream. Across the river, at a point half a mile above the ruin of the ferry-house, a troop of cavalry, caught on return from scout, had pitched its tents and picketed its horses, and was waiting for the falling of the waters to enable it to return to its "AND THE OTHERS CONSIDERATELY MOVED AWA*S." station, and with that troop, the maddest man in all Wyoming, was Lieutenant Will Farrar. Six or seven weeks previously an order had come to Fenton to send two troops to scout the we...

A PAGE FOR WOMEN Odd desiens in jewelry are derigueur this season. For instance, a cat with its back humped up in the very act of fighting is described as quaint and curious. It is a combination of emeralds and gold. A poodle of oxidized silver set in diamonds is also in favor. Both of these are worn as brooches. Opal pins with oval head and pear-shaped opal, applied to the same pur pose of a beautiful quality, full of chang ing lights, are great favorites and make very lovely presents for bridesmaids. The old superstitions concerning these fateful stones will never be forgotten. Quite re cently a friend of mine was sent a most lovely lacerjin set with opals. She quickly replaced it in its case and returned it to the donor with the explanation that her birth month was not October. A good deal of attention has lately been devoted to turquoises, some beautiful Bpeciinens having been made ud by Tiffiny. Arrows for brooches and for the hair in diamonds and sapphires meet fashion's vrant...

Books and Bookmakers A New Kssayist. Time once was, and that, too. in America, when an essayist was not without honor, even in his own country. Nowadays, how ever, essays are not read on this side of the water. The short story is occupying the literary stage, to the exclusion of nearly all else. Even the serial story, unless the author is fortunate enough to Vet a syndi date to bring it out, falls fiat in almost every instance. The reading world wants i fiction, and wants it straight to the point. and with that brevity that is often the i soul of incompleteness. But the essay, although fallen upon hard lines in this country, and relegated to out ot-the-way corners in the bookcases of I those 6ld-fashioned people who, while j they do not themselves read essays, still j hold the ancient faith tnat they are needed to complete a library, is stil! occasionaly read in England. This is the reason, possibly, why a vol ume of essays published in this country, at j one of the literary centers...
