gaze, of concentrated Interest, H*|der
which ber eyes fell. ."Why, Ibis is ro>,
liiautie," he exclaimed, "absolutely romantic!   And you don't know bow you
came by this locket? You don't know
who was your father, your mother?"
"1 do not know anything."
"And what does SI. Itousslllon know?"
"Just ns little."
"But how came he to be taking yon
and caring for you? Ho must know
how lie got you, where he got you, of
whom he got you.   Surely he knows"—
"Oh, I know all that. I wbb twelve
yenrs old when Papa Bousslllon tools
me, eight yenrs ago. I bad been hav-
Ing a hard life, and but for him I must
have died. I was a captive among the
Indians. He took nie and has cared for
me and taught nie. He has been very,
very good to nie.   I love blm dearly."
"And don't you remember anything
at all about when, where, bow, the Indians got you?"
"No." Sbe shook ber head and seemed to be trying to recollect something.
"No, I just can't remember. And yet
thero has always been something like a
dream In uy mind which I could not
quite get hold of. I know that I am
not a Catholic. I vaguely remember a
sweet woman who taught me to pray
like this: 'Our Father who art ln heaven,.hallowed be thy name.'"
And Alice went on through the beau-
tlful and perfect prayer, which Bhe repeated In English with Infinite sweetness and solemnity, her eyes uplifted,
her hands clasped before her. Beverley could have sworn that she was a
shining saint and that be saw an-aureole.
. "I know," she continued, "that some
time, somewhere, to a very dear person, I promised that I never,never,never
would piny any prayer but that and I
reinember almost nothing else about
Hurt other life, which Is far off baclc
yoniler ln tbe pnst, I dou't know where

that I have all but lost from my mind."
Beverley's sympathy was -deeply
moved. He snt for some minutes looking at her without speaking. She, too,'
was pensive and silent, while the flre
sputtered and sang, the great loga
slowly melting, the "flames tossing
wisps of smoke Into the chimney still
booming to the wThd.
"I know, too, thnt I am not Frencb,"
she presently resumed, "but I don't

have nlwnys ilrenmetl of bilking In thnt

woman, who sung to me in that language the very sweetest songs ln the
Beverley listened ns one who bears a
clever render intoning a strange and
captivating poem. To his mind lt wns
dear that she belonged to the Tnrleton family of Virginia. Youth always
concludes a malter nt once. He kneyv
some of the Tarletons. Bpt It was a
widely scattered family. Its members
living In nlmost every colony In America. The crest be recognized nt a
glance by-the dragon on. the helmet
with three stars. It was not for a woman to bear. But doubtless lt had
been enameled on the locket merely as
a family mark, as was often done ln
America. i
"The black woman wn. vour nurse,
feor mammy," he said. "I know by
that and by your prayer In English a.
well as b.v your locket tbat you are of
a good old family."
Like most southerners, he bad itrong
faith In genealogy, and he held at hh.
tongue's tip the names of all the old
families. The Carters, the Blalrs, the
I'ltzhugbs, tbe Hnusons, the Randolphs, the Lees, tbe Ludwells, tbe
Joneses, the Beyerleys, tbe Tni'letqns—
u whole catalogue of tbem stretched
back In his memory. He knew tb»
coat of arms displayed by each house.
He could repeat their legends.
"I wish you could tell me more," lit
went on. "Can't you recollect anything further about your early chlld-
li.od, your first Impressions—tbe house,
the woman who taught you to pray,
the old bluck mammy? Any HtUe thing
might be of priceless value as evidence."
"There ls absolutely nothing more to
tell," she said. "All my life I hav.
tried to remember more, but It's Impossible; I can't get any further back
or call up another thing. There's no
use trying. It's all like a dream; probably It is one. I do have such dreams.
In my sleep I can lift myself Into the.
air just as easy and fly back to tbe
same big white house that I seem to
remember, When you told me about
your home It was like something that 1
had often seen before. I shall be
dreaming about lt next."
Beverley cross questioned her from,
every possible point of view. He was
fascinated with tke mystery, but she
guve him nothing out of which the
least further light could be drawn. A
half breed woman, it seemed, had been
her Indian foster_mother, a silent,
grave, watchful guardian from whom
not a hint of dlscloaure.evcr fell. She
was moreover a Christian woman wbo
hnd received her conversion fi'Om an
English speaking Trotestaut missionary. Sho prayed with Alice, thus keeping In the child's mind ■ perfect memory of the Lord's prayer.
"Well,"'said Beverley at. last, "you
ere more of a mystery to me .the longer 1 know you," .
"Then 1 must grow eyery day more
distasteful to you."        '   :.;
"No; I love mystery."
He went away feeling a new web.of .
interest binding him to this 'Inscrutable
maiden whose-life seemed to him at
oiice so full of Idyllic happiness and so
enshrouded In tantalizing doubt At
the first opportunity he frankly questioned SI. Itousslllon, with no helpful
result. The big Frenchman told kbe
same meager story. Tbe woman Was
dying in liu; time of'S'great epidemic •
which killed most of her tribe. She
pave" Alice to SI. Roussillon, but told
him not n'*word nbbntber ancestry or
previous life.   That, was all.
A wise old man when he,finds himself In a blind nllcy no sooner touches
the terminal wall limn he faces about
and goes back the wny ho came.    Un- .
der like clrciiinstances. n young man
must needs try to batter the wall down ,
with his lit-a'd.    In Beverley's case the
clash.was profoundly disturbing.   And''
now ho clutched Ihc thought that.Alice

Beverley comprehended the situation
ln a second. Helm's face was congest
ed with excitement. Some scouts hud
coine in with the news tbat Governor
Hamilton, at the head of r,t.n or O.-il
soldiers and Indians, wns only three or
four miles up the river.
"Where are ull tbe men?" Helm repealed.
"Buffalo hunting, most of tbem," Baid
"Whnt in thunder are Uiey off hunting buffaloes for?" raged the excited
-apt n I n.
"Y'ou might go to thunder nnd see,"
Beverley said, and they-'both.'hiuglii'd
In sheer masculine contemn'tvo. a predicament too grave for anything but
grim mirth.
What could they do? Even Oncle Jnzon and Bene de Itonvllle were olT with
tbe limners. Helm sent for M. Itousslllon In the desperate hope I hilt lie
could suggest something, but be lust
his bead and hustled' off to hide his
mofley and valuables.. Indeed the
French people all felt lhat so far as
they were concerned, the chief Iblng
was-to save whut they laid. They well
Knew Unit It mattered little which of
the two musters held over Iheni—they
must shift for themselves. In tber
hearts they were true to ["ranee and
America; but France and America
could not now protect them against
Hamilton, therefore It would be like
.suicide to magnify pntrldlisin or uny
other sentiment objectionable to the
English. So they acted upon M. Rnus-
slllon's advice and offered no resistance
when the new iiriny approached.
"My poor people are not disloyal to
your flag and your cause." said good
Father Beret next morning to Uaptnln
Helm, "but tbey are powerless. Winter Is upon us. Wbnt would ynu have
undo? This rickety fort Is no.t available for defense. The men are nearly all
fnr away on the plains. Isn't It the
part of prudence .and common sense fo
make the best of a desperate situation?
Should we resist, the British and tbelr
savage allies would destroy the town
and commit outrages too horrible to
think about In this case diplomacy
promises much more thnn a hopeless
ttubt airnlnst an overwhelming force."'
"I'll light 'em," Helm ground out tie-
tween his teeth, "lf I have to do It single handed nnd alone!   I'll fight 'em!'
Father Beret smiled grimly, as if he,
too, would enjoy u lively skirmish, and
"I admire your courage, ray son.
Fighting ls perfectly proper upon laii
occasion. But tblnk of Ihe poor women
and children. These old eyes of mine
have seen some terrible things done by
enraged savages. Slen can die Uglitln...
but their poor wives and tbiugbters-
ah, I have seen, I hnve seen!"
Beverley felt a pang of terror shoot
through his heart as Father Beret's
simple words made hiin think of Alice
In connection with tiie'Indian massacre.
"Of course, of course it's horrible to
think of," said Uelia, "bnt my duly ls
clear, and that flag" — he pointed to
where la  banulere d'Aliee  Itousslllon
drcn, homos and country! The few I
have Iu the fort will'sncak off. 1 suppose."       r
"The French gave you this post on
easy terms, captain," blandly returted
Father Beret.
"Yes. and they'll hand It over to
Hamilton, you think, on the samo
basis," cried Holm, "but I'll show you!
I'll show you, Mr, Priest!"
"I'ardon me, captain. The French are
loyal to you and lo the Hug yonder.
They have Bworn It. Time will prove
it. But in the present desperate dileiu-
ma we must choose the safer horn."
Saying this Father Beret turned
about and went his' way. He was
chuckling heartily as be passed out of
the gate.
. "He Is right," said Beverley after a
few moments of reflection, during
which he was wholly occupied wilh
Alice, whose terrified iaee lu his anticipation appealed to him from Iho
midst of bowling savages, smoking
cabins and mangled victims of lust and
massacre'. Ills, imagination painted the
scene with a merciless realism that
chilled bis blood. All the sweet romance fell awny from Vlncennes.
"Well, sir, right or wrong, your duty
Is to obey orders," said Helm wllb bru.

His speech sounded preposterously
boastful and hollow, but be was manfully in earnest Every word came
from his bruve heart
Father Beret's grim smile returned,
lighting up bis strongly marked face
witb tbe strangest exprcsslou imagiua
"We will get all the women Inside tne
fort," Helm began tp say.
"Where the Indians will find tbem
ready penned up and at tbelr mercy,"
quickly Interpolated tbe priest "That

"Well, then, what can be done?" Beverley demanded, turning wllb a fierce
stare upon Father Beret "Don't stand
there objecting to everything, wllb not
a suggestion of your own to offer."     '.

The, curt .phrase, "things worse,"
♦vent like a bullet stroke through tietr-
erley's heart. It flashed an awful picture upon bis vision. Father Beret saw
his face whiten and his lip's set themselves to resist a gloat emotion.
"Bo not be angry wltb me, my son," j
he said, laying a- hand on the young
man's arm.   "I may be wrong, but I '
act upon long and convincing experience."
"Experience or no experience," Helm

"They are moving rapidly," snld the
spokesman, ""and will be here very

"Push that gun to the gate and lono

Helm ordered''with' ntimirnble firrtl-
ness, the purple flush In his luce glvin,;
way to a grayish pallor. "We.are going to die light here or have the bon
ors of war."
Beverley obeyed without a word. He
even loaded two guns instead.of one;
charging each so keavlly that the last
wad looked as lf ready to leap from
the grimy mouth.
Helm hnd already begun, on receiving the first report, a hasty letter to
Colonel Clark at Kaskaskia.   He now
j added a few words, and at the lust moment sent it out by a trusted mail, who

Having completed this task, the letter shows under what a nervous strain.
Helm turned to his lieutenant uud

thoroughly acquainted with
savage warfare, and no knew
all tlie pacific means so sue
cessfully nnd ao long used by I'reinb
missionaries and traders to control savage character, but the emergency now
upon blm was startling. It confined
blm.' Tbe fact that he had taken a sol'
cmn oath of allegiance to the American
government could- have been pushed
.aside lightly enough upon pressing occasion, but be knew that certain confidential agents left in Vincennes by
.Governor Abbott had, upon the arrival
tit J-lebni gone to Detroit, and of course
tiiey had carried thither a full rcnort
of ali that happened ln the Church of
St. Xavler when Father Gibault called the people together, and at the fort
when the British* flag was hauled down
and la banulere d'Aliee Roussillon run
up ln its place. His expansive imagiua-
Hon did full credit to itself ln exaggerating the Importance of his part In
handing the post over to the.rebels.
And Wbnt would Hamilton think of
this? Would he coii-ider-It treason?
The'question certainly bore a tragic
SI. Roussillon lnckcd everything of
being a coward, and treachery had no
rightful place lu his nature. He was,
however, so In tlie halilt of fighting
windmills and iuaklng mountains of
molehills that he could not at first
glance see any Buddeh'presentnieiit
with a normal vision. He bad no love
Lv Englishiuen, and he did like Americans, but be. naturally thought that
Helm's tnlk of fighting Hamilton wits',
as. his owp would have beeu ln a like
case, talk and nothing more.' The fort
could not bold out an hour, be well
know. Then what? Ab, be but too
well realized i:h* result
Resistance would Inflame the English
! 'soldiers add madden the.Indians. .There
! would be a massacre, and the belts of
! savages would sag with bloody scalp..
\ He shrugged his shoulders and felt a-_
i chill, creep up his back.
The first thing SI. Itousslllon did was|
to see Father Beret and take counsel of
j blm;  then he  hurried  home to dig
great  pit  under  his  kitchen  floor  In
j which be burled muny bales of fur and^
all his most valuable things.   He work-
j ed like a giant beaver all nlgbt long. I
Slenntlme   Father   Beret  went   about]
; over the town quietly notifying tho ln- j
j habitants to remuju in tbelr houses un-
til   after   the   fort   Bhould   surrender,
, which, he was sure, would happen the ,
next dny.
"You will be perfectly safe, my ehlL-J
drcn," he said to them,   "No harm can^
come to you If you follow my directions."
. Relying   Implicitly   upon   him,   tbeyj
scrupulously obeyed ln every particular."
He did riot tblnk It necessary to e.tlli
at Roussilion place, having i!lr\i,ly-l
given SI. Itniissllltm the best advice be ;

JhsI  at  the  earliest  break of  day.
while yet the gloom of night scarcely '
felt the sun's approach, a huge figure
mude haste along Uie narrow streets in
the northern part of the town.   If any
person  had  been looking out through,
tbe little holes called windows iu those
silent and rnyless huts it would have
been easy to recognize M. 'Itousslllon by
bis statnro and his gait, dimly oullinejd ,
ns be was.   A thought which seemed to1,
him an.Inspiration of genius had taken'
possession of blm and was leading him
as If by the nore straight nwny to Hamilton's lines.   He was freighted with eloquence for the car of thut commander,
and ns he strode along facing the crisp *
morning air he was rehearsing under
Ida breath! emphasizing his periods In '
tragic whispers with sweeping gestures
nml liberal facial contortions.    So absorbed was be In bis oratorical solllo-'
quy tbat bo forgot due military precaution and ran plump Into the face of a j
savage picket guard, who, wlthem. re*
spect for the great XL Rousslllon's dlg-^
ulty,  sprang  up 'before  him,  granted™
cavernously,   flourished   a   tomahawks
and spoke In excellent and exceedingly :
guttural Indian:
"Wall, surrender!"
It Is probable that no man ever cotn-l
plied with a modest request ln a mere j
docile spirit than did  SI. Roussillon ^
upon   that   occasion.     In   fact   his i
promptness must have been admirable,
for tbe savage grunted approval and ,
straightway conducted him to Hnmll- '
ton's headquarters on a batteau lu the ,
• The British commander, a hale «aan*i
of sandy complexion and probably, un-.
der middle age, was in no very pleas-1
nnt humor.    Some of his orders had
been misunderstood by the ehlef of hU|
Indian allies, so that a premature exposure of his approach bad been made
to the enemy.
"Well, sir, who are you?" he.grufflyl
demanded when M. Kousslilon loomed
before blm.
"I nm Gaspard Roussillon, the mayor '
of Vlncennes," wns the lofty reply,
have come to announce to you officially"1
that my people greet you loyally and
that my town Is freely at your command."   He felt as Important as lf his *
statements hnd been true.
"Humph I Thnt's It Is lt? Well,
Sir. Slayor, you have my congratula*.
tlons, but I Bhould prefer seeing tlie i
military commander and accepting his I
surrender. What account can you give ,
me of tbe American forces, their number and condition?"
SI. Roussillon winced, Inwardly at,
least, undor Hamilton's very undefer-
ential air and style of address. It
piqued him cruelly to be treated as a-j
person without the slightest claim to I
respect He somehow forgot the roll- ]
Ing and rhythmic eloqueuco prepared <
for the occasion.
"The American commander naturally would not confide In mc, SI. le Gou-
rerneur; not at all. We are not very
friendly. He ousted me from office,
be offended me"— He wus coughing
and stammering.
"Oh, thunder! What do I care? Answer my questions, sir!" Hamilton
gruffly Interrupted. "Tell me the number of American troops at the tort, \
"I don't know exactly. I have not
h(id admittance to (be fort I mlg&t be
deceived ns to numbers. But they're
strong, I believe, SI. le GourernSur;
at least they make a great show and
much noise."
Hamilton eyed the huge bulk before
blm for a moment, then, turning to a
subaltern, said:
"Place this fellow under guard and
sse that he doesn't get away. Send
word Immediately to Captain Farns-
worth tbat I wish to see him at once."
The Interview thereupon closed abruptly. Hamilton's emissaries bad given him a detailed account of SI, Rousslllon's share ln submitting Vlncennes
to rebel dominion, aud he waa not ln
the least Inclined toward treating bim
"I would suggest to you, it. le Oon-
verneur, that my official position demands"— SI: Roussillon began. But
he was fastened upon by two guards,
wbo roughly bustled him aft and
bound hlin so rigidly that he could
scarcely move finger or toe.
Hamilton smiled coldly n-Vd-'turned
to give some orders to a stalwart, ruddy young officer who in a canoe bnd
Just rowed alongside the batteau.
"Captain Farnswortb," he said, acknowledging the military salute, "you
will lake fifty men and mnke every-
■thlng.ready.for.a roconnolssauce In the
direction of the fort. We Will movo
jdown the river Immediately and choose
n place to land. • Slove lively! We have
no time to lose."
In the meantime- Beverley slipped
away from the fort and made a hurried
call upon Alice nt -Roussillon place.
There was nnt much they could say to
each other during Ihe few moments nt
conunnnd. Alice showed very littlo
'excitement Tier past experience had
fortified her agaliist tho alarms ot
■frontier life,-. But she understood and
perfectly appreciated the situation.
"What are you going to do?" Bever-
'ley demanded In sheer tlrapuir. He was
not able to see' any gleam .of. hupe out
of   the   bk.ckness  .which   bniL  fallen
around him and Into bis soul...'   '
"What shall- you do?" he .repented.
"Tnks the ch-mces of war," siie said,
smiling gravely.   "It will all como out

The Reason They Abound Aniiuii, th.
Creek ami  CVieVfil-ee Indians.
Tlie prevalence Of Scotch niimes with
the Creek and Cherokee Indians has at
various times beefi' the' source of some
comment 'Xltbougb other nations;
and, In fact, neSi'Jy'every nation, ls
represented b.y*the names borne by
these people,- *h.'sfc*8cotcli names are
far:-more numerous and:have suffered
less change than those acquired from
any other nation. The names of some
of these Scotch Indfaiis are closely allied wltb the „history of these two nations for the p1fi%'t"TOO years, and for
soveral generations such names as Slc-
Intosh, McKellop, 'SIcGombs, Adlr,
SJcQueen and SlcGilllvary are registered on nenrly all the treaties and official papers of moment to either nu-
tlon. Men bearing these names today
are araong'.the foremost of tbe pro-
Ifresslve Indians.
As wiis .sauted, the origin of these
Scotch names' dates buck . over 100
years. At that time the Creek and
Cherokee Indlaos..,moro especially bent
thoir efforts toward! building up a na-
' Hon of pBysienliy perfect men. _The
yoiiiert were encouraged to mat. only

Who attended mo cured me of tho
trouble, it loft behind after effects
Irom which it seemed almost Impossible to recover. I grew weak and
very pale; my appetite was poor; I
suffered at times from severe headaches; nnd the least exertion left me
completely worn out. I triad several remedies, but Instead of gettfng
better I wns gradually growing
worse. Any work about the house
left me weak and dispirited, and I
felt almost like giving up. At this
time a friend who had used Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills with much benefit strongly urged me to givo them
a trial. I got a box, and as I did
not feel any better when I had used
them, I would havo given them up
but for tho fact that my friend urged
that one box was not a fair trial. I
then decided to continue tho uso of
tho pills, and by tho time I had taken three boxes I found my condition
was improving. I used eight boxes
in nil, and by the time I had taken
them nil my old time health had returned. S1y appetite had improved,

Makes Another Move Fot-wi'.r,!.
Toronto, Ont., June 6.—(Special).
—Medical science has at length awakened to the fact that Gravel and
other bladder troubles are caused by
disordered kidneys and that the modern method of curing them is to" cure
the kidneys with Dodd's Kidney l'ills.
This "does away with those terrible
operations that ' in past years have
been all too common.
Tho case of William Thomas, bricklayer, 158 Mill street, this city, is
one of the recent proofs of the efficiency of the treatment. Mr. Thomas
"I had been troubled with Gravel
and Bladder Disease for seven years.
I had to .go to tho hospital and havo
water taken from me, I tried medicines of different kinds, but they
failed to remove the trouble.
"Hearing of cures by them prompted me to try Dodd's TCidney Pills,
and after taking them for a lime 1

The Oanndiau Medical Aasciatiou will
1 meet in Vancouver from Tuesday to
■Thnrsday next weok. About 600 doctors
from all over the Dominion, the United
States and even from Europe are coining. This will be fhe first Medical convention held 011 the Coast nud Vancouver mny well feel prond to entertain
delegates of tliis distinguished profession.
The City Council on Monday evening
decided to submit a bylaw to the elec
tors  for   raising $100 000,   in order to
make needed extensions of water mains
aud provide for   the   large   number  of
applications for water service.
. Mt. Pleasaut citizeus are anxious for
better water  servico both  for   private
residences and fire protection,  and will
undoubtedly vote for the by-law unanimously.   Mt. Pleasant snd Fairview nre
. the most interested suctions of tbe oity
in having the proposed by-law passed.
Alderman Mortou's  suggestion,   thnt
. a direct wnter main should  lie  laid to
- Mt. Pleasant, seems to be 11 most sensi-
, ble one.   That  the    city  should    be
divided into sections and a water main
laid direct   to  each  section   from   the
source of supply, nud no tapping of tbe
main allowed outside of  each section,
wonld probably give the  most satisfnc
tory  service.    Wo  are  iuformed that
' nearly 90 per cent of the services asked
for are on the lower level- of the city
and even though amain was laid around
. tbe head of   False Creek,   the higher
levels of Mt. Pleasant  would  have uo
i better water pressure thnu at present,
owing  to   the  increased    number  of
services tupping tlie main on the lower
levels.     But nu   improvement  iu   our
.water servico is propose, and no matter
what plan is carried out  when  the by-
. law is submitted, within a few weeks,
every elector entitled to  vote  will be
certain to east his ballot favorably.
Woman's    j
Pink bids fair to tie a favorite color
agtiiu for dancing gowns. Very mauy
have been worn and greatly admired of
late. Pink crepe, monsseliiio and a sort
of crepe lissc are much to the fore, the
piuk hnviug that yellowish tone com-
mou to oriental piuks as compared with
our rose piuks. Glitteriug trinimiugs
are another craze, but not in tho old
style of solid designs ns much as if executed by hand in narrow rows evenly
spaced apart, tbo width of a narrow
ribbon, from a quarter to hnlf nn inch
wide They tire put ou iu straight or
varied Hues of waving serpentines, or
are compact diminutive patterns. There
is a pronounced simplicity iu the low
bodices of these gowns, which are quite
full, but no bagging or front pouching
allowed, as wa:; formerly the mode. Au
easy bodice fullness is clasped iuto a
broad gird'e, well fitted nnd chiefly built
of transparent luce, upon wliich gold
or silver paillettes are wrought iuto
designs iu harmony with tbo corresponding skirt ornamentation. For example, a broad baud, eighteen to twenty
inches wide, of an all-over lace, designed
with Louis xv baskets of toppling
flowers trailing over tlie sides, and long
delicate sprays of many tiny blossoms
trnvorsiug tbe open spaces of uet, en-
ales the full skirt from a little above the
knee line downward, Tho basket aud
some of the flowers, as well as scattered
trails of foliage, are embroidered iu gold
spaugles exceedingly minute iu size,
Tbe top of the skirt has six fine row., of
simple gauging. A lace girdle, eight
inches at least in width, clasps the
waist, ami this too is embroidered, bnt.
tho basket design is excluded. As may
well bo imagined, the finisii of girdle iu
front, being small, lies double wheels of
piuk gnn/.e edged with overlapping lines
of gold paillettes. The top of the low
corsage is cut iu the modest Hues, now
so fashionable. It has its narrow insetting of lace aud spangle work, while the
sleeves arc iu puffs of gauze, without
trimming, but exquisitely draped.
In tbe manner of wearing veils  two
distinct styles are liegiuniiig to prevail
in New port's fushionublu quarters.  Oue
is the white lace veil,  rather elaborate
iu its design nnd  drawn close over tbe
fuce, its border dipping almost an iucli
below ilie chin,  aud   the   oilier ia  the
auto veil upon a ring, in white, iu green,
brown and blue, monsseline or chiffon,
crossed iu tlio back and tli-rwn  forward
under tbe chin, mid banging in long
scarf cuds.   This is the forenoon  style
and worn witb linen suits chiefly, bntol
different qualities, some ns sheer as pus
si'tile. others as   heavy   as  cloths,  and
answering for all degrees of temperature
Matrons affect   these   white lace veils
very much, while tbe youug contingent
married or single, show a preference for
clouding head   aud  becoming   tissues.
Steel-gray liberty monsseline and u deep
shade of golden bronze, with u suspicion
of green ubout it,  aro  tlio two  smart
colors for long-journey auto  veils,  and
very fit do they look when  the rnnors
rush past.
Walk a mile to save a nickel, thou
spend it for candy.
Pull he waist in, while pitying the
foot-bound Chinese women.
Suffer the discomforts of a short shoe
to make her font look small.
Wonder for a half hour what time it
. forgot ting the watch tucked into
her belt.
Raise her skirt nt tlio side to show her
silk petticoat, nnd let it drag at its
longest point.
