to take one of the long handled musk

When the winner ha. empUed the

"You ore too good to me," said Edith
softly. "I feel ashamed of not—of not
being In love with you; but I don't think

Edith wa. greatly shaken. Firmly believing all he said, lt seemed all but lui«
perntive on her to accept him. Wh 1
would ever eare so much for ber ngalu?
A feeling that if she rejected him sdii;
would never find any one to love hi.'
as he did, impelled her to say tiemul-
"If, indeed, you think me so neoesaity

of feeing 1 have for you, I think—I

and catching her hand in both his own.
"I make no condition. 1 only nsk the

Do you know—can you see the delight

promise to be my wife us soon as matters eon be arranged."
"Yes," said Editii, slowly, almost
.oleniady, "1 will, fltul I shall love you
when we nre married, I am sure I shall."
Ehe spoke calmly, Avtthotit any of tho
blushing hesitation, the shy ccnso'.cus-
ness, natural at such a crisis.
Beaton wisely took his tone from her.
He kissed the hand he beld tenderly,
gravely; he murmured!
"How can I thank you enough I Even
for the sake of this delightful nremc:i£
I would not have tried to win your concent, if 1 did not firmly bvlinvs I eon il

He looked so bright, so joyous, that
Edith felt pleased with herstflr for giving
pleasure. Yes, it wns well to end h?r
uncertainties, nnd secure- a tr.impi'l
future by accepting so devoted a lover;
bnt she wiinted to go away, to think,
to relieve her heart by a good cry.
"Must you leave me?" said Beaton,
as she made n move as if to go; then

Beaton was constantly with her, attd
for the first fortnight most Judicious. He
kept up the ton* of friendly sympathy,
occasionally dashed with tenderness.
He amused her by planning routes, describing the beauties and wonders he
wt.s to show her, and he kept her irjir-i
full of himself and iris projects. Malt-

thnt the question of Iter future destiny
was nt rest; bin she longed Intensify

"Very Well.   To hear is to obey. Only

It was finally decided that only such I

were suited to traveling should be pre-1

And now the last week of Edith's j
girlish life had begun: on Thursday ehe !
ivas to become Mrs. Leslie Beaton, and ;
at (he thought of the near metninor-
phosD she felt s curious uneasy erecpi- ■

Tho truth Avas, thnt Beaton had be-,
gun to get a little tired of the part he
lind hitherto plnyed with such spl it,
and judgment. He was not less atten- j
the cr ready to lavish presents on his :
fiancee, but ho unconsciously fell back !
into his old mocking tone, which wus j
perhaps .lightly harder, because It was I
eenitiAvhst trying to his equanimity to j
know that "Lndy Mary Stanley Brown"
had started oil ber wedding tour just!
ten days before he was to set ont on 1
his own.
Edith felt rather than perceived the
Indefinable change; she told herself she
wus uerrons, childish, unreasonable; but
a vague unpleasant Impression tvould
grow ttpoti her, ttftit Leslie Beaton, keen
jolting, brightly hard, was a more natural man than the quiet, kindly, sympathetic Beaton, who seemed to understand tier thoughts before she uttered

plant to start far and away ahead of

likely protects lt from destruction by

Why Americans Wlu,
Ono of the muuy reasons why American manufacturers ore so successfully
competing In foreign market. Is to bo
found In the following episode which
occurred recently: An .American manufacturer of steuin specialties was visiting an English firm which made similar goods. A certain article which
both firm:! made wns under discussion.
"What Is your price on this thing'/"
asked the American.
"Well, In your money, about 919,"
replied the Englishman. "What does
It coat yon?"   .
"I'll deliver at your door all you
want nt $7 npleco/'-sald the American,
"How In the world dd you do It?"
"Well, I'll Illustrate," answered the
American. "Look out of that window
pud ncrosB the street. Bee that nmu
pointing u sign?"
"Yes." . .  "
"He", on a ladder! Isn't hc7"
"Roe that otltor man sitting on th.
.Idewnlk "holding tho foot of tbe ladder?"  ''      "
"Now. in America we have ladder*
thnt BUind up by themselves—dou't
need a mnn to hold 'em. So, you hco. In
thin In.tnnce we dlvldo your cost of labor exactly by two."
"I .oo." remarked th. KrujIUUman.—

During the past week interest ir.
tho wheat trade has become more
keenly ce.itrod in the American speculative markets, and the doings in
these markets are ceslred around

it is thought that Armour is buying,
prices go up. lf he leaves it alone,
or seems to be selriiig. prices decline
In these markets there has been an
active week's trade, but nervous nnd
uncertain every tiny. Tho lelutlve
positions of December and May wheat
ill tho Chicago market have undergone quite a change diirim' the wrek,
December being ,H' lower and May ic
lower. In other markets both May
and December nie Jc to jc lower on
the week. On the 10th Inst., tho American government agricultural report
for December was Issued, lt Is important as giving the condition and
acreage of the growing winter wheat
crop in tho States on December I.
The condition this year is S6.6 with
an ncreage of 32,000,000 acres,against
it condition of 99-7 nt tho same date
last year and an ncreugo of 34,000.-

560,000,000 bushels on December 1st
Inst year. As compared with last
year the showing this year Is con
idered to be very bullish, but a
great ileal depends on the weather in
sprinc and at harvest time. In the
meantime, while the crop is nothing
like as forward an it was a year aro
it is in good condition, to stand the
wlntor, tho only complaints beins
that in some parts' there 'is not as
much moisturo in the ground ns is
considered requisite for best conditions The crop I-.us now a fair covering of snow in nearly all districts.
The movement of wheat In the States
shows a fair increase on the week,
Tho oxports also show considerable
increase, and for the first timo In
many months they shew this week
larger shipments than for corresponding week a year ago.' The Runtpcan
situation shows na change, Consumptive requirement, over there are

glide—the favorite waltz that one unconsciously associates with Strauss
Besides this new Knickerbocker has
another advantage.    It makes a splen
did  cotillon   figure,  for it begins with
a g'rand promenade down the hall, and
may  be easily "danced with two part
ners.   As a dance It is strictly a society
one, for it is as deliberate as the min
uet, and demands a certain amount of
time and dignity, anil one steps through
its   mazes   without   tripping  on   one's
long skirt or without the least fear of
tearing one's  costly  laces  and  In lids
respect   lt differs  from  nearly  almost
every other round dance of the present
For a fancy dance lt is splendidly
adapted, as it may be flirted through In
old style, with the skirts lifted to the
ankles, Just as grandmother danced
her time and generation. And if the
ankle be well turned and the feet pret
tily shod it is the daintiest and most
pleasing of all ways to go through Us
Though danced to waltz time, lt is
done In very leisurely style, the feet
barely walking the steps. Delicately,
daintily, each step distinct, they go
through the first three positions. Then
cornea the regulation waits position,
and through the gentle mazes round
and round they go.

There is always a novelty each season,' and thia season's novelty Is' undoubtedly Dlama thread.
Llama thread Is a fine gold thread
with n lustre of Its own that completely hills the coloring in' any other trimming .combined with It and for this reason. It Is usually, employed without any
other trimming.
This novel thread Is embroidered
upon the material in a fine glistening
mass. The figures of the embroidery
are small and massed together producing the effect almost of concentrated
sunlight. The embroidery Is so fine
and close that the work Is done with
great delicacy and care and the figures
are done upon net, or some similar stuff
ami when It Is desired to apply embroidery In Llama thread to any other
material the work 1* first done upon
net and then appllqued upon the material to be trimmed.
Very large spangles are as popular
as they are effective as trimmings.
There is now a -composition of which
spangles are made that Is as light almost as a feather, and these spangles
are shaped so that they may be cut
In any size desired. They are prettier
than tbe old spangles, which made a
dress bo heavy when they were used.
These large spangles are smartest
when In oval shapes, and in long, thin
nnxrow patterns, but they may be cut
In any shapes arid one of the gowns
Illustrated the large spangles In the
fringe are cut In the shape of an oak
SpangleB of the day are dyed In any
color that suits the gown which they
are to trim, nnd these self-toned spangles are more fashionable than the
opalescent spangles, which, however,
are also worn.
Favorite colors in spangles are blue,

green  and  cerise,  tints  that are also
favorites In gowns.
One point I want to bring to the attention of women is that short trains
are th* proper thing fr- the ball gowns.
This popularity of short trains is due
to the full skirts now in vogue. These
skirts are adapted to short trains and
in nearby every case are literally covered with trimming.
Plain velvet gowns have a decided
vogue among women who*have elegant
Jewels to display. The_, plain velvet
acts as a soft background to sot off
the beauty of the Jewels and velvet
has a faculty of bringing out the lustre
In Jewels such as perhaps no other fabric has.
Where magnificent Jewels are to be
worn the velvet gown Is severely plain.
The effect is an artistic setting for
superby adornments and not a ball
gown that attract* attention to Itself.
No true artist woujd call attention
away from the principal figures In his
picture by an elaboration of back
ground. Every woman should conform
to the principles of true art In her
There Is a general revival of all-tulle
gowns for young girls. These tulle ball
gowns are particularly suitable to
young girls, they suggest youth and
delicacy In the fabric and are made to
carry out this suggestion In the en
Broadly speaking, soft materials are
leading favorite* for ball gowns, such
as chiffon, lace and fine crepes and si
milar  lovely  weaves  that this season
has produced In such profusion.
Those who have two old waists, or
two bits of cloth, neither one of which
Is big enough for a whole waist, can
make a nice, new pretty waist by util
Islng both pieces of cloth.
Suppose the waist proper be made of
dark brown cashmere or of dark brown
Bilk flannel; then let tbe yoke be mole
of tan colored flannel and let the sleeve
epaulettes be made of the same stuff.
This affords sharp contrast. The cuffs
are lined with the contrasting color,
and, of course, tbe stock Is made of lt.
Waists are of green flannel, with a
pale coffee colored yoke and all over
the yoke there are French knots of
Another waist Is made of navy blue
cloth, while the yoke Is In a warm tan.
Navy blue knots and light blue knots
dot this yoke nnd make It pretty. The
Idea Is to secure a contrast and the
very prettiest effects are obtained. The
best waists are made from a very soft
and very fine silk flannel which comes
In every known shade. This makes up
well and, if due attention be paid to
tho yoke and Its trlmmlngs.'the waist
Is assured of a place In good society.
The woman who likes to pipe can get
busy, for thero will be a great deal of
piping upon the dark blouses of Spring
Dark cloth is piped with bright silk
and thus the blouse is lifted from sorn
brenees into prettlness.
One such blouse which was in a navy
blue corded silk and was piped with
red plaid taffeta while the stock and
cuffs were trimmed with half a do*en
pipings of the plain Bilk. There was a
wide crush belt of red leather to match
the reddest color in the silk.
Pipings of very gay blue are u*ed
upon gowns of deep red, and pipings of
deep red are very conspicuous upon
waists that are made of green, of
brown and of black. Every effort 1*
exerted to get a broad contrast and the
waists of Spring will be noticeable for,
the fact that there are several colors
In them. They do not savor of monotony.
White linen waists will be trimmed
with one band of Persian embroidery
running down the front. The stock and
cuffs will repent the embroidery, which
will be about three inches wide. Again
there will be white canvas waists trimmed with wide bands of Oriental Bilk
stiffened and adjusted upon the front
of the waist to be removed on wash
Women who can do handwork are
buying heavy white canvas and working a panel for the front of the waist
In crocs-stitch. This paney may be in
a Grecian pattern conventional and
carried out In all colors, but It should
be done In a very neat crosa-stitch embroidery, in such a way that the whole
of the linen is covered. In this manner the  Oriental effect  Is produced.
But don't, In the scheme ot the Summer shirt waist, forget the fringes and
the tassels of Summer, for these will
be as popular as they ever were In the
1830 days.
"It keeps dressmakers awake nights
keeping track of all the new sleeves,
but it Is a pretty business and we like
It," and the modiste picked up a pair
of sleeves which looked suspiciously
like lamp shades and proceeded to sew
them Into the armholo of a. pale blue
Regatta Shirts.
