There are a few things in business life that are hard to improve upon. Persian Taffetas, light, medium and dark effects— can't describe them—by all means thte richest things of the season ; truly Oriental in their designs and colorings. Perhaps no one style of silk has been so much sought after and most certainly no one style has been so fascinating. We are fortunate in being able to show a very handsome and complete variety. Then of the Chameleons— they are still in demand and we have added some new designs. We've also some five or six new pieces of Plaid Taffetas, •with satin bars, that are-decidedly Frenchy in their colorings and in very handr some and pronounced effects.

His Son, Who Was In Bed With Him, Heard Him Groan, Put Oat His Hand and Found That He Was Dead. Some of Field's Achievements* CHICAGO, NOV. 5.—Eugene Field, the poet, died in his bed of heart failure today at his home in Buena Park. He retired last night in usual health and apparently slept soundly till daybreak, when his son, who oooupied the room with him, heard him groan, and putting out his hand found that death had already taken 'place. Mr. Field leaves a widow and five children. Mr. Field and Mr. Yenowine of Milwaukee intended to start together for Kansas City today, at which place Mr. Field was to read tonight. Eugene Field's Careen Eugene Field was born in St. Louis in 1860. His father, Judge R. M. Field, acted ns attorney for the plaintiff in the celebrated "Dred Scott" case that did much to bring on the civil war. At an early age Field's mother died, and he was sent to Williams college. At EUGENE FIELD. his father's death, a short while later, he left Williams, spending a year or two in several western colleges. At the age of 21 he converted his father's property into cash, and with about 870,000 started for Paris. In the gay French capital he lived the life of many young Amerioans on a holiday, with the* result that he returned home less than a year afterward, poor and obliged to work for a living. He has described his European difficulties in a poem setting forth the lament of a man who was "Broke In London In the Fall of '89." Returning to America, he became a reporter on the St. Louis Morning Journal, a few months later being promoted to the position of city editor. During his two years' service on The Morning Journal Field began his career as a humorist and published some verses called the "Bullfrogs' Boom." These verses were published as original by London Truth. His Work In Chicago. In 1887 Field went on the. Chicago News. It was there that his satirical writings first made Chicagoans writhe and New Yorkers laugh. While Field's clever newspaper feuille-tons made him celebrated throughout the journalistic world he was not known to the general reading public until the appearance, in 1891, of his two books, "A Little Book of* Western Verse" and "A Little Book of Profitable Tales." While on The News Mr. Field's column, "Sharps and Flats," also kept up his reputation among journalists. In appearance Field was very tall, lean and awkwardly built. He had enormous feet, was slightly bald and clean shaven, reminding onlookers Somewhat of Bill Nye's caricatures of himself. Field's character in later years bore out the promise given in youth, when he threw away his whole patrimony in a year's dissipation. Throughout life he understood too well the use of money and too little of its value.' His wife was manager of the family exchequer, as the humorist was unable to take care of his own earnings. Frequently money that should have paid insurance or household bills went for some trifle Field had set his heart on and had bought regardless of consequences. An Affectionate Parent. The humorist's strongest trait was his love for his wife and boys. Both have been celebrated in numbers of his poems, and one child, whose death was Field's bitterest grief, called forth his best known verses, "Little Boy Blue." Here is the poem referred to: LITTLE BOY BLUB. The. little toy dog is covered with dust, But sturdy and stanch he stands, And the little toy soldier is red with rust, And his musket molds in his hands. Time -was when the little toy dog was new And the soldier was passing fair, And that was the time when our Little Boy Blue Kissed them and put them there. "Now, don't you go till I come," he said, "And don't you make any noise." Bo toddling off to his trundle bed He dreamt of the pretty toys, And as he was dreaming an angel song Awakened our Little Boy Blue. Oh, the years are many, the years are long, But the little toy friends are true. Aye, faithful to Little Boy Blue they stand, Each in the same old place, Awaiting the touch of a little hand, The smile of a little face. And they wonder, as waiting these long years through In the dust of that little chair, What has become of our Little Boy Blue ; Since he kissed them and put them there. An Alarm Clock's Fatal Work. NEW YORK, Nov. 5.—Pierre Lannobras, for three years an assistant chef at the Windsor hotel, was found dead in his bed. He had been asphyxiated by gas. The accidental swinging of the alarm clock, which hung upon tho gas fixture, is supposed to have turned the stopcock and let tho gas escape. , THE ALASKAN BOUNDARY, Canadians Erecting: Fortifications Alonfl the Disputed Territory. PORT TOWSTSHEND, Wash., Nov. b.—A party of miners from the headwaters pf the Yukon river has arrived from UliaJ laska and reports that tho Canadian government is establishing well equipped fortifications on commanding bluffs overlooking strategic points on Fortj^ Mllii creek and elsewhere along the supposed international boundary line. A large company of Canadian military police is busily engaged in exploring the country for mountain passes, both in Alaska and Canadian territory. The loop of Forty Mile creek runs into British terj ritory, and to reach the most valuable mines it is necessary for American minor? to pass through a small portion 6f foreign territory. The river is very narrow, and the police have erected on the overtower* ing cliffs impenetrable fortresses which completely guard travel on tho river. At several other points breastworks of stond have been erected. On tho whole, the ao' tions of the police would indicate that preparations are being made to accommodate large squads of militia at various points along the boundary and particularly in the vicinity of the placer mines. Howevor, the police are very kind toward American miners, rendering them every* assistance possible and in many other ways bestowing small favors and endeavoring to allay suspicion or unpleasant inquiries as to the objects of such warlike preparations. In the entire area of country in the British territory small detachments attired in citizens' clothes have visited all important mining camps reconnoitering the surrounding country. What their object was they would not state. On the British side are stationed customs and judicial officers, and a good system of municipal government is maintained. The miners bri^» tho news that the country last spring'was flooded with fullj/ 1,000 inexperienced men, who rushed intc the mines and were bitterly disappointed, and now they predict that before' the approaching winter is over much suffering will be experienced. There is not enough food in the mines to last through the winter. Last winter provisions ran short, and hundreds of miners became afflicted with scurvy, and threo died. The miners have not been very successful this season, no big strikes being reported. FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. Closing Quotations of the New York Stocli Exchange.

While tho Prisoner's Sister Was Dying the Coroner W#s Fuming and Fussing 0 About—Hannigan's Queer Moods Described by Witnesses. NEW YORK, NOV. 5.—David F. Harmi-gan, whose trial for the murder of Solomon H. Mann, the betrayer of Hannigan's Bister Loretta, has been geing on in the court of oyer and terminer for ten days, appeared in rather more cheerful mood .today when he was brought into court. Although he was as pale as ever, and although his cheeks were more sunken and the lines deeper than when he was first put on trial, his eyes were clearer than they have been for several days. His little wife and his gray haired father sat close behind him. The court ropm was well filled with the usual crowd of interested spectators. Before Justice Ingraham came into court Coroner Hoeber, who had been anxiously awaiting his arrival, obtained permission, to seo the justice in his private chambers. The little coroner came out tei*,minutes afterward looking not particularly happy and hurried up stairs to his own office. Ex-District Attorney De Lancey Nicoll was the first witness called today by Mr. Brooke for the defense. Mr. Nicoll said in answer to questions that he was present at the inquest on Loretta Hannigan by Coroner Hoeber on March 28. "There was very unusual and improper hilarity at the inquest," said Mr. Nicoll. "There were muoh laughing and disorder." "Do you remember asking for a table at the inquest?" asked Mr. Brooke. Hilarity at the Inquest. "Yes, I -remember that. I asked for a table for counsel. A large table was brought in and got stuck in the door, and that created laughter. The coroner behaved so that there was a wordy war between him and counsel, and that created unusual merriment. "There was altogether a remarkable degree of hilarity. The coroner was very familiar in his way pf addressing the gentlemen who were there to represent the defendants." OfEccr William Fullerton of the Twenty- third precinct was the next witness. He testified that he had known Hannigan for about four years. After Loretta Hannigan's death, tho witness said, he noticed Hannigan several times. He seemed very downhearted. His manner was very different from what it had ever been before. The policeman said ho saw Hannigan on a bicycle, and in answer to a question by Mr. Molntyre he made the remarkable statement that he considered riding a bicycle in the evening an "irrational act." Mr. Mclntyre made the statement to the reporters today that if Dr. Forbes Winslow of England is called by the defense as an expert in insanity the district attorney will show that the doctor is not the cejebrated English alienist, but his son, and that the doctor here at this time Went under another name several years ago, only assuming the name of Dr. Forbes Winslow comparatively recently. Frank W. Fay, a brother-in-law of the defendant, was called as the next witness. Hannigan's Brooding. He testified that he met Hannigan on May 33 at the oxpress office at Seventh avenue and Thirty-eighth street, where the witness is employed. Hannigan, on that occasion, asked him why so many wagons were lying idle on May 1—"moving day.'' He seemed surprised when Fay told him it was May 23. Hannigan then began to talk about th6 failure of the district attorney to bring Solomon H. Mann to trial and said that he knew Mann would never be punished, as he had §500,000 behind him to keep him from being convicted. On cross examination Fay said he had known Hannigan for ten years, and that until May 23 he had never seen him in a saloon. Adolph Houck, a real estate agent of 137 West Ninety-sixth street, was next called to the witness stand. He testified that he had known Hannigan for a number of years, and until last March the prisoner had always been pleasant in manner and businesslike in his dealings. - In March and April last he said he met Hannigan and found him greatly changed. Ho talked at random and could not or would not give intelligent answers to questioners. Hannigan's manner, he said, was that of a nervous, excited man, who was unable to keep his attention fixed upon one subject for any length of time. Mark Levy, a real estate agent, who had desk room in Hannigan's plumber shop, testified that Hannigan's conduct had greatly changed after the death of Loretta and that he was gloomy and distracted thereafter and did not attend properly to his business. Cautions State Regents. . ALBANY, Nov. 5.—A small printing office has been set up in the office of the regents at the capitol, consisting of two typesetters and a hand press, through the use of which it is hoped to prevent suspiciously high percentages which certain candidates in past examinations have obtained. All examination papers in the future will be printed at the office of the* regents. ^ Prominent Actor Accused.
