IsooiIk Seat ������ Approval.
WUen the ways of some woiiicn aro
considered, it is loss reunirtniblu Unit
such numbers of women dwelling lu
the largo cities dress extravagantly
than before their methods of securing
rich costumes for all occasions have
been serutini .ed.
There nre ..omen, and many of them
very wealthy, who mnke a regulai
practice of huving elegant garment*
sent to their homes on approval; wearing tbem once and thou returning them
to stores or costuuiers. Some women
will wear a dress ur a cloak to tbe
opera and send It back next morning.
Or they wlll got a bat or wrap nnd go
driving or visiting iu It. The average
person would be astonished to know nil
the things, from handsome umbrellas
and fnus of great beauty to jewelry
aud clothes, thnt some women bor
row from tlie shops.
Of course nil of theso woman nre not
well off, but they all dress well nnd
gu out n meat ileal, and nlthoilgll the
shopkeepers often discover the unuiliei
In wliich they nre being deceived, tin)
do not always like to mnke a t'us.s foi
fear of losing a good customer. Besides
they kuow that if they Incur tho enmity of such impostors the women nre
quite capable of abusing their goods
und robbing them of other and more
honest customers. Strange ua It may
seem, these women generally mingle in
pretty goad society, or tbe fringes of It,
and huve some influence iu the mutter
of dress, since Uiey have won the reputation of ulways dressing elegantly and
lu the newest tilings.
This sort of Imposition hnd been curried on so often by a customer of n cer
t;',!;i large Urn. that iu members determined to pi.l u stop to tier slhtUllUlig
about iu borrowed plumage, ut least
wben the plumage belonged to them.
One Saturday this woman hnd a splendid wrap sent home on approval, and
on Sunday one of the koml clerks of
ilie tlnii who knew Mrs. Blank as tbe
offender stationed himself near her
pew in tlie fashionable church whicli
she nIIended. When she sailed down
tho nlslo ufter service, resplendent in
the borrowed cloak, this mau stepped
up to luf and said:
"How do you do, Mra. Blank? I nm
delighted to see that you like our cloak
well enough to keep it."
Of course after that ahe could not return the cloak.
Still, with all the efforts put forward
by shops and cosluincrs to break up
the pi-rnli ion., habit of forcible borrowing on tlie part of sundry feminine oils-
tourers, tbo practice goes merrily on.
and many a fair diiine with an enviable reputation for e_iniisite dressing

No- less a physician than G.
Sims Woodhead. M D.. F.R.S.E ,
Professor ot Pathology, Uhiversity
of Cambridge England, makes the
following statement: "Alcohol is a
narcotic poison, of which the pernicious effects are to be seen on
every band.- Its- use is attended
witb dangers that attach to the
prescription of no other* substance
! in the pharmacopcea; these dangers
| are- not moral only, but physical,.,
resulting from the action oi alcohoi
on the tissues- generally, but especially otji those of the nerve
centres. The use of alcohol medica-

but when he buys a newspaper at-
the price of j. i per year, in advance- ment or alimentary substance for

The price of this.paper is 5c a copy
pr $.1 per, year in advance. See
what' a, reduction is male in the
price to advance subscribers. Why
not pay- in advance?;
patients suffering from specific infective fevers-will soon- be relegated
to the litabo that has already received venesection, indiscriminate
blistering, and other- equally barbarous and discredited treatments."
A St. Petersburg correspondent-
of the Daily News, London, reports
the Committee of the Douma, which-
theJ is considerin..; the drink question,
with a view to-fighting the admittedly scandalous evil of intoxication, has made the startling recommendation that a skull and: cross-
bones should be substituted for the
Imperial Eagle on: Vodka bottles.
It is further proposed that the label,
should CQutaiu the tollowing inscription: "Mao,! Although thou
hast bought this spirit,, yet know
that thou drinkest poison, which
destroys thee. Before it is toe. late,,
never buy another bottle. (Signed)

Dominion government will soon

Whon tin- ways of somo women aru
considered, it is loss remarkable that
such numbers of women dwelling in
the lar.no cities dress e__ravagnntly
than belore their methods of securing
rich costumes for all occasions have
been scrutinized.
There aro womeu, and uiany of them'
very wealthy, who make a regular
practice of having elegant garments
sent to their homes on approval, wearing them once and then returning them
to stores or costuuiers. Some women
will wear a dress or a cloak to the
opera and seud it hack next morning.
Or Ihey will get a hat or wrap and go
driving or visiting in it. Tho average
person would bc astonished to know till
tha things, from handsome umbrellas
���nd fuua of great beauty to jewelry
and clothes, that some women bor
row from tlie shopa.
Of course all of these woman are nol
well off, but tbey all dress well and
go out a groat deal, and although till'
shopkeepers often discover the nnuuiei
iu wliich they are being deceived, they
do not always like to make a fuss foi
fear of losing a good customer. Resides
they kuow that if they incur the enmity of such impostors the women are
quite capable of abusing their goods
and robbing them of other and more
honest customers. Strange aa it may
seem, these women generally mingle in
pretty good society, or tbe fringes of it,
aud bave some influence in thc matter
of dress, einee Oiey have won the reputation of always dressing elegantly and
lu the newest things.
This sort of imposition hud beeu carried on so often by a customer of a cer
tain large (!nil that ils ineuiiiers determined to put a stop to Iter -Haunting
about in borrowed plumage, ut least
when the plumage belonged to them.
One Saturday this woman had a splendid wrap sent homo on approval, and
on Sunday one of the head clerks of
the firm who knew Mrs. Blank as the
offender stationed himself near her
pew in the fashionable church which
she attended, When she sailed down
tho alslo afler service, resplendent iu
the borrowed cloak, this mau stepped
up to her and said;
"How do you do, Mrs. Blank. I am
delighted to see that you like onr cloak
well enough to keep it."
Of course after that she could not return the cloak.
SUH, wilh all the efforts put forwurd
by shops und costumors to break up
the pernicious habit of forcible borrowing on the part of sundry feminine customers, tlu practice goes merrily on.

and precious stones, produces, when
exposed to tlie rays of the sun. a stupendous oli'tv t of coloring, soft uud harmonious and oijiial to the bold graceful

Diaphanous Indian muslin charmingly embroidered with green beetle wings
is still renowned, as well as examples
of painted spangles and artificial pearls
strewn amid devices wrought in gold.
Rut where is uow to be found the incomparable Decca muslin, thirty yards
uf wliich were once inclosed for a turban ln uu ordinary coconnut iucrusted
with gems and presented by a Persian
ambassador to his master, the shall.
Other varieties known ns invisible
have also disappeared. Tho term originated from the fact that when dipped
iu water or spread out on the grass the
material was lost to the eye through
its extreme fineness.
The trained fingers have disappeared,
and through modern competition customers are uo longer willing to pay the
real value of genuine hard work. This
superiority of eastern craftsmen over
their western fellows was recognized
centuries ago, first by Portuguese, who
were iu the habit of sending satin to
India to be embroidered by the natives
alter Europ.aii designs, a fashion
which at times renders somewhat puzzling the classification of the marvels
of handiwork.
The French followed suit, since the
majority of the Louis XVI. court sets,
including coat, waistcoat and breeches
in satin, velvet, plush or corded silk,
so exquisitely adorned with delicate
sprays and admirable borders wrought'
in satin and tambour stitches, are due
to the skill and Industry of tbo Chinese, who have reproduced tlie French
devices with (loss silk in such lovely
and fast colors, whicli still appear in
all their beauty, with a mellowness iin-
partiul by time which further adds to
their charm.
BOOKS AND READING.
Reading is to the mind what exercise
Is to the body.���Addison.
ji home without books is like a room
without windows.���Beecher.
To read without reflecting is like ewt
lng without digesting.���Burke.
Books aro the best things well used;
abused, among the worst.���Emerson.
Next to acquiring good friends the
best acquaintance is that of good
books.���Cotton.
Some books are to be tasted, others
to be swallowed and some few to ba
chewed and digested.���Bacon.
Half the gossip of society would perish if the books that are truly worth
reading were but rend.���Dawson.
What is a great love of books? It le
something like a personal Introduction
to the great and goi.d men of till past
times.���.lohn Bright.
The three practical rules I hnve to
offer are: (1) Never read any book that
is not a year old; (2f) never read any
but famed books; (.'it never read any
but what you like.- Emerson.

their bouses and were forbidden to
bare any games played therein. On
Sundays no persons dwelling within a

to enter except substantial householders traveling to church, nntl then only
