Bodices are so diverse in fashion that
a clever couturiere ia enabled to eait tbe

The blouse style still prevails, but tbe

country and morning wear. The evening blouse ie Btill fashionable, but, although lhe material may differ, the colouring must correspond.
Tasselled trimmings are used even on

smooth felt, with a rough felt edge or
a velvet band, may be trimmed with a
heavily •fringed scarf, a twist aud bow of
ribbon on the edge, and finished off witb
chenille "bobs," or a couple of pompoms

The sac or kimono Bbape is fashionable for evening coats, and is most effective in lace over satin, with a quilted
lining of pale-coloured silk. The dinner
coat of chine taffeta, much enriched
with lace, a eoupcon ol velvet, and tiny
jewelled buttons, is a favourite hi Paris
and Vienna, and many lovely models
have been prepared for foreign water-

ikiitof lace or net is much in favour
with these coats, or a limp, clinging
skirt of white or pale-coloured cloth,
daintily strapped witb taffeta to correspond.

Then came another great treat for
Ladysmith music-lovers, in tbe line
singing of Mrs. George Williams. This
was MrB. Williams' first appearance on
tbe concert platform In Ladysmith, and
the lady received ample assurance that
she had quite won tbe admiration of all.
Mrs. Williams' voice ie a very rich
mezzo-soprano, and gives plenty of evidence of careful cultivation. It was unfortunate that'Uie firdt song she essayed
was not suited to the pitch of tbe instrument, and had to be abandoned, but
tbe substitute more than mnde up for
the disappointment. . It was Scottish
lilt, and Mrs. Williams may be cordially
congratulated upon tbe excellence of her
Scotch accent. The song completely
took the audience by storm, and proved
Mrs. WilliiiiuB to be one of the swiftest
and most accomplished singers on tbe
island. At the close of the concert one
could hear tbe wish strongly expressed
that Mrs. Williams would often he heard
in Ladysmith concerts, Mrs. Williams
was alto very fortunate in having as accompanist so exceptionally accomplished a pianist as Mts. W. A. Aubiu.
Miss Katie Johnston, the charming
young reciter of Nanalmo, needs no
press introduction to a Ladysmith audience. Seldom has anything more sweet
and graceful and clever been heard here
than Miss Johnston's recitation of
"Billy's Rose." One can safely predict
for this highly gifted young lady I
brightly successful career. Her dram
atic action is really: quite out of the
common for one so young.

revelation to many in the audience that

many tine pijinl.ls mid many who know  T
thoroughly what good music IS. was the.+
piano playing of Mim Vicky Gibfloi, of
Nanaimo.   The piece strongly rtF-mbled
one ot  those dUiit-ult.  hut  molt dims
compositions   hailing   from Poland or
Hungary,  tbo home of the   wild   hte*
music.-which has been so attractive ioit
musical genius of tlie highest order;
music in which Chopin  tii tamed   end
evolved esquUite things for immonal-
ity; in which  LUzt found  the  fullest
field for the exercise of his eitraatdin-
ary powers; miiBlu  which, interpreted
hy Paderewekt, Rosenthal, Kiiuellk and
Koutski hae sent countless thouBantls
into rhap.odies that took them neater
heaven than many of them   will  ever
reach   again—probably.    Miss   Gibson
displayed a technique aud understand*
ing of the music which are very unut-ual
iu young etudeuts, and it is eaBy enough
to predict.that if  she  persevere  along
the bard road to the stars, ebe is tolerably certain to achieve much in the musical world.   Later iu the eveniug Miss
Gibson delighted the audience again.
Mr. David Roberts ia a LadyBmith
favourite, and bin song on Tuesday, evening only added to tbe high opiniou in
which his talents as a singer are held
here. His encore, a comic ditty, "If
she'd but bu mlue," was much enjoyed.
An anthem by the full strength ol the
choir, "Ouward Christian Soldlere,
vealed a power and training that must
have astonished all wbo had not had
the privilege of bearing tbie excellent
organization before. Undoubtedly First
Presbyterian choir is one of the best in
the province.
Mr. G. Morton Walker then addressed
a few remarks to tbe audience, Inviting
them to attend Sunday evening service at
the church, when special music was
always provided. Hu cordially thanked
all for their presence.
The chairman then in the name of
the choir and managers, thanked the
audience for their attendance, and assured litem that this was auly the first
of a aeries of concerts which would he of
equal or superior merit to this, to be
given throughout the winter,
The concert closed with the singing of
the National Anthem,
It is understood that a very handsome
sum has been realized from tlie concert
lor tbe choir fund.
MiSB Herd, organic of the church,
acted as accompanist at piano and organ, and contributed her full share to
the evening's enj tyoient.

* T
tu the morning, when the work mnn
arrived at tbe shop, they lind itcoldaml
black witb the sorrow of ruin. At the end
of tbe great hall the machine with iIs
thin arms and motionless wheels stands
dumb, lending a still mure penetrating
sense of desolation to Ihe room winch,
until then, bad reecunded with the
cheerful clatter and whirling noieeeol
the big machine, throbbing like the
heart of the mill,
from bis little office aod says sadly to
the workers—
"My men, theie Is no work—to day-
there are no more orders; instead, I am
receiving countermands on every side,
an 1 all tbe merchandise will be left u -ion
my bands. This December, the month
of such heavy work in other years, and
upon whlcb I had counted go much,
threatens to ruin the strongest concerns.
We shall have to sunpeud."
And ae be sees the workmen looking
at each other with fear in their eyes of
returning empty handed to their hornet-,
a fear of hunger on the morrow, he adds,
In a lower tone—
"I am not selfish, no, I swear to y-hi
tbat I am not. My situation ie as terrible, even more terrible, perhaps, than
yours. 1 have lost fifty thousand francs
in less tban a week. I am stopping the
work to-day eo as uot to deepen tiie gulf.
I have not tbe fit ut sou towards my bills
of tbe 15th, You see I am not hiding
anything from you; I speak to you aa n
friend. To-morrow perhaps, tbe bailiff.
will be here, That is not our fault, Is
it? We have struggled.to tho very end.
I have wished, from tlio bottom of my
heart, that I could help you over this
hard time: but the end hascome, I have
lost everything, and I have no longer
any bread to share."
The men shake it silently, and for
eome moments remain there looking at
their useless tools, their handi* clenched.
Every other morning tbo liles had sung
and tbe hammers had Bounded rhythmically, aod now it seemed as though
all that were sleeping in the dust of
failure, There were twenty, thero were
thirty families, wbo would nothave anything to eat during the following week.
Some of tbe women who work in tlie
mill wipe away the tears from the corners of their eyes. Tbe men try to look
more firm. They Bpeak bravely, saying
that one doee not die of hunger in Paris,
Then, whon the muster leaves them,
and they see him walkaway, bent and
stooping within eight days, crushed by a
disaster perbapi greater tban he will tell
them, smothering In that room, they go
out, oue by one, their throats choked
and their hearts cold with sorrow, as if
th^y were leaving a chamber of death,
The dead Is their work, tbo huge, dumb

Tho workman Is outside, in the Htreet,

He would work for nothing if thoy would
ouly tako him ou. It ia tho Btrike, the
terrible strike that Ib tolling the knell of
the garrets. The panic haa stopped all
the industries, nud money, cowardly
money, Ib hidden fearfully away.
At the close of eighth day the end bns
indeed come. The workman has made
one last, supreme effort, and now he Is
coming slowly back, his hand empty,
bowed with misery. It Ib evening, ami
the ralu Is falling heavily; Paris is fun-

For an instant, the idea of begginif

to tbe end of the street, to ate if she cau*
not somewhere In Ihe dletanee catch a
glimpse ff him for whom she Ib waiting.
Aud wiien she comes back she is -soaked
through. S-ierub- her hands over ber
thin hair to dry it, and again settles
down patiently, though sbe Ib shaken by
heavy fits of fever.
Tue coming and going of the passers
by j istlea her. Sbe tries to make herself
very small, so as not to tronble any one.
Some of the men peer closely into her
face, and Bometimes she feels a warm
breath touching lightly her neck, All of
suspicious Paris, tbe street with its
mud, the brilliant lights, the rolling
carriages, seem to wish to take and
throw her into the seam of it all. She is
hungry. She belongs to tbe whole world,
Iu front of ber is a bakery, and ihe
thinks of the little girls upstairs asleep.
Then, when her husband appears at
la-it, veering away from the houses like
a poor wretch, she rushes to meet him,
"Well!" she stammerB.
He does not answer, but bends his
head oven lower.  Then, pale as death,
she mounts the stairs.
Upstairs the little girl is not sleeping.
She lias waked up and Is thinking,
watching, the end of tbe candle ai it
tlickera ou a corner of tho table. No one
knows what monstrous, heart-breaking
shadows sweep aoross tbe face of this
little girl ol Beveu years, with the sen-
ous, withered features of an old woman.
She is silting on the edge of the boi
which Eerves her aa a bed. Her feet hang
down shivering!)*, her sickly, doll-like
bands are holding against her breast the
rage tbat cover her. She leels a burning
there, a tire tbat she wonld like to put
out.   She Is thinking.
She haa never bad any playthings,
Sbe cMild not go to a school because she
did not have any shoes. When she wae
very little, she remembers bow her
mother took her out In the sunshine,
But tbat was long ago. They bad to
work, and after that it always seemed as
if there were a cold wind blowing in tbe
house, She has not felt very comfortable,
She has thought a good deal obout
th.-tt, but sbe cannot understand. Is
everybody always hungry, then? Sbe
bag tried very hard to get used to it, but
ahe hae uever been able to, She thinks
she ia too little, tbat one must be bigger
to understand. Her mother knows,
though, thffl strange thing that is bidden
from little girls. If she dared, sbe would
a-jk her who It was put you iuto the
world to be hungry.
Then, too, it ia homely in their house,
She looks at thewiudow where the empty
cover of the mattress Haps in the wind,
at the bare walls, tbe broken furniture,
all the shame of the attic which the
strike soils witb despair. Io her ignorance abe thinks she has dreamed of warm
rooms, filled with beautiful things that
shone; she shots her eyes again to ate
them, aud through her thin eyelashes
the light of tbe candle becomes a great
resplendence of gold, into which she
would like to go. But the wind comes
blowing in, and there Is such a current
of air from the window that the ii seised
with an attack of coughing, and wheu
it ia over her eyes are filled with tears,
She always used to be afraid befoie,
wben they left her all alone, now she
doea not care, it doesn't make any differ
once. They haven't eaten anything
since last night, so the thinks her mother
has gone out to look for some bread. Tne
Idea amuses her. She breaks her bread
in small pieces and eats a few slowly-,
one hy one, then she plays with It.
Her mother has come back,father has
shut the door. The little girl looks at
th ir bauds, very surprised.;. Then,
w ten they do not Bay an) thing, at the
eud ot a long moment, she repeats tn a
mechanical voice i—
"I'm very hungry, I'm very hungry."
Her father, holding bis head between
his bauds,
he stays there, utterly crushed, shaken
with heavy Blleut sobs, The mother,
stifling her tears, again puts tbe little
one Into the box. She covers her with
all the clothes in tbe room and tells her
to be good and go to sleep. And the
child, whose teeth are chattering with
cold, who feels the Are in her breast
burning stronger, becomes very brave.
She puts her arm around her mother's
ueiik and whispers softly—
"Tell me, mamma, why are wo always
hungry?"—KmlleSSnla.   *

A promineut oaretnaa speaking ou the
reason of the refusal of Ten Eyck's entry
by the Henley etewnrds said this morning tbat tbe queetion of fear ofthe
American's prowess Lever entered into
tbe matter at all, The atewarda always
reserve the right to reject any entry
without giving any reasons Tor so doing,
and they simply exercised that right.
Tue real reaion for the turning uf-the
American down arose from his lust-octa-
tlons of the yr-nr before. Instead of
putting up at a respectable hotel, according to the Kiuliah Men of what nn
amateur and a uentl-riuan should do, he
took up hisqunrteis sruong thu watermen and made nsaociatea uf them und
professional oarsmen. Thli, ho snld,
was the real reason for the rejection of

Loudon, Nov. 21.— The "Express"
slates that on Baturday tbe Boer Generals—-Botha, DeWet-, and Delarey—
narrowly escaped being the vie'ima of
a very hostile demoustrelioii after they
had left the County Caincil'a Trafalgar
Square eland, from which they bud
viewed the procession of tho King.
Christian DeWet was the central figure of tho incident. A number uf people
were pressing iirouud the Boer gentlemen, when DeWot suddenly found his
hat rammed firmly down over his eyes.
He tugged haul at ir. to.get U hack in its
place, wheu tbe crowd taking their cue
from the unfriendly act, began to close
j in ujion the Utile gmup. A demonstration that was decidedly hostllu was Le-
ginnlng to assume shape, when a large
force of police—aome of tbem mounted—
came to the rescue. About twenty-five
in number, they formed a circle round
the Boers, and, gradually driving the
people hack, Ihey escorted thu ex*Geo-
eralf* out of the crowd.
Aa DeWet ami tho others moved
away, they were greeted with mingled
cheerB and moans. There were many
witnesses of the scene, anil the incident
has been brought to the knowledge uf
the Ministers of the Ciown.
