OUR REPUTATION as Painless Dentists is shown by the daily
increase in onr practice.   We have gained a world-wide reputation with onr discovery, whioh, when applied to the gums,
teeth can be extracted absolutely painless.
Onr patients are so pleased with the results that they not only tell
their friends, bnt personally bring them to onr parlors thut they
may receive the same treatment. In this way, together with the
highost-olasB dentistry, done by onr Specialists, our practice has
gradually increased till we are second to none in practice.
By the use of onr Double Adhesive Suction Chamber we ifre able to
fit the most difficult casts. Where other Dentists Fail We Meet
With Success. If your teeth drop wheu yon try to eat with them,
or if you are afraid of thom striking the pavement when you sneeze,
there is something wrong; they do not fit. Our Double Adhesive
Suction Chamber overcomes this difficulty and is Our Own Invention and can not be used by others.

ta%ie\ nothing lu answer to tbese outbursts, ns I had no consolation to offer.
Wc had two or three of our little
meetings of four, dangerous ns tbey
were, nt which Mary, feeling tbat each
time she saw Brnndon might be the
Inst, would sit and look nt blm with
glowing eyes tlmt ln turn softened and
burned ns be spoke. She did not tnlk
much, but devoted nil her time nnd energies to looking wltb her whole soul.
Never before or since wns there a girl
so much In love. A young girl thoroughly In Iovo Is tlio most beautiful
object on earth—beautiful even In ugliness. Imagine, then, what lt made of
.Growing partly, perbapB, out of his
nnattainabllity—for be was as far out
St her reach as she out of his—sbe had
long since begun to worship blm. She
hnd lenrned to know him so well, and
bis valiant defense of her ln Billingsgate, together with his noble self sacrifice ln refusing to compromise her ln
order to save himself, had presented
him to her ln so noble a light that she
had come to look up to him as her superior. Her surrender had been complete, and she found ln lt a Joy far exceeding that of any victory or triumph
sbe could Imagine.
The trouble begnn ln earnest with
tbo discovery of our meetings ln Lady
Mary's parlor. There was nothing at
all unusual In the fact that smnll companies of young folk frequently spent
their evenings with her, but we knew
well enough that tbe unusual element
ln our parties wss their exceeding
smnllncss. A company of eight or ten
young persons wns well enough, although It of course created Jealousy on
the part of those wbo were loft out,
but four—two of each sex—mnde n difference ln kind, however much we
might insist lt wss only ln degree, and
this, we soon learned, was tbe king's
Y'ou may be sure there was many a
Jealous person about tho court ready
to carry tales and tbat It was Impossible long to keep our meetings secret
among such a host as then lived ln
Greenwich palace.
One day the queen summoned Jane
nnd put her to the question. Now, Jane
thought the truth was made only to bo
^old, a fallacy Into which many good
people have fallen, to their utter destruction, since the truth, like every
otlier good thing, mey be abused.
Well, Jane told It all tn a moment
and Catherine was so horrified that sh»
was like to faint She went with her
hair-lifting horror to tbe king and
poured Into bis ears a tale of Imprudence and debauchery well calculated
to start bis righteous, virtue-prompted
Indignation into a threatening flame.
Mary, Jane, Brandon and myself
were at once summoned to the presence
of both their majesties and Bouudly
reprimanded. Three of us were ordered to leave the court before we could
■peak a word In self defense, and Jane
bad enough of her favorite truth for
once. Mary, however, came to our rescue with her coaxing eloquence and
potent feminine logic nnd soon convinced Henry that the queen, who renlly counted for' little wltb blm, had
made a mountain out of a very small
molehill. Thus the royal wratb was appeased to such an extent that the order
of expulsion was modified to a command tbat there be no more quartet
gatherings ln Princess Mary's parlor.
This leniency was more easy for the
princess to bring about by reason of
the fact that she had not spoken to her
brother since the day she went to seo
blm after Wolsey's visit aud bad been
so roughly driven off. At first, upon
ber refusal to speak to him after the
Wolsey visit, Henry wns angry on nccount of what ho called ber Insolence,
but as she did not seem to care for
tbat and as bis anger did nothing toward unsealing ber lips be pretended
Indifference. Still the same stubborn
silence was maintained. This Boon began to amuse the klug, and of lute bo
had been trying to be on friendly terms
again with bis sister through a series
of elephantine antics and bearlike pleasantries, wblcb were the most dismal
failures—that Is, In tho way of bringing nbout a reconciliation. They were
more successful from a comical point
of view. So Henry wns really glad for
•oinet hing that would loosen tbe tonguo
usually so lively, and for an opportunity to gratify bis sister, from whom
he was demanding such a sacrifice and
for whom be expected to receive no
less a price than the help of Louis of
France, the most powerful king of
Europe, to the imperial crown.
Thus our meetings were broken np,
and Brandon knew bis dream was over
arid thnt nny effort to see the princess
would probably result In disaster for
tbem both; for him certainly.
The king upon that same day told
Mary of the Intercepted letter sent by
ber to Brandon at Newgate and accused her of what ho was pleased to

taken the adventurous tendency out of
even the cracked brain of chivalry Itself. Brandon cared only to fight where
there wns a possible victory or ransom, or a prospect of some sort at least
of achieving success.
So every phase of the question which
bis good sense presented told Brandon,
whose passion was as ardent though
not so Impatient as Mary's, that lt
would bo worse than foolhnrdy to try
to see her. He, however, had determined to see her once more before he

Upon my entrance she dropped his
hands and tnrned quickly toward me
with a frightened look, but was reassured upon seeing wbo It was. Brandon mechanically walked away from
her and seated himself on a stool.
Mary, as mechanically, moved to his
side and placed her hand on his shoulder. Turning her face toward me she
said, "Sir Edwin, I know you will forgive me when I tell you that we have
a great deal to say and wish to be

Mary knew he wns right, but she
could not resist a vicious little glance
toward me, who was in no way to
Presently we all moved Into the window-way, where Brandon and Mary,
sat upon the grent clonk end I on a
camp stool ln front of them, completely filling up the little passage.
"I can bear this no longer," exclaimed Mary. "I will go to my brother tonight and tell him all. I will tell blm
how I suffer and tbat I shall die lf you
aro allowed to go away and leave me
forever. He loves me, snd I can do
anything with him when I try. I know

will let him see; I will convince him.
I have In my mind everything I want

sbe laughed softly as her spirit revived
ln the breath of a glowing hope. "Then
I will tell him bow handsome bo Is and
how I hear tho ladles sighing for blm,
and be will come around all rlgbt by
the third visit. Ob, I know bow to do
lt. I bave doue lt so often. Never
fear. I wish I bad gone at It long ago."
Her enthusiastic fever of hope was
really contagious, but Brandon, whoso
life wus at stake, bad bis wits quickened by the danger.
"Mary, would you like to see me a
corpse before tomorrow noon?" he ask-
"Why, of course notl Why do you
ask such a dreadful question?"
"Because, lf you wish \o make sure
of lt, do what you have Just said—go to
the king nud toll blm nil. I doubt lf
ho could wait till morning. I believe
he would awaken me at midnight to
put me to sleep forever—at the end of

"Ob, no; you nre all wrong. I know

"If that Is the case, I say goodby

"I promise," snid Mary, with drooping head, the embodiment of despair,
all life and hope hnving left ber again.
After a few minutes her face brightened, and she asked Brandon what ship
be would sail ln for New Spain, and
"We sail ln the Koyal Ulna from
Bristol," he replied.
"How many go out ln her, and are'
there any women?"
"No, no!" he returned. "No womnn
could mnke tbo trip, and, besides, on
shipB of tbat sort, half pirate, half merchant, they do not tnke women. The
Bailors are superstitious about lt and
will not sail with them. Tbey say
tbey bring bad luck—adverse winds,
calms, storms, blackness, monsters
from the deep end victorious foes."
"The Ignorant creatures!" cried Mary.
Brandon continued, "There will be a
hundred men lf the captain can Induce
so many to enlist."
"How does one procure passage?" Inquired Mary.
"By enlisting with the captain, a man
named Bradhurst, at Bristol, where the
ship ls now lying. Thero ls where I
enlisted by lotter. But why do you
"Oh, I only wanted to know."
Wo talked awhile on various topics,
but Mary always brought tho conversation back to the same subject tho
Royal Hind and New Spain. After
nsking many questions sho snt ln Bl-
lence for a time and then abruptly
broke Into one of my sentences. Sbe
was always Interrupting me as lf I
were a parrot
"I have been thinking and bnve made
up my mind what I will do, and you
shall not dissuade me. I will go to
New Spain with you. That will be
glorious—far better than tbe humdrum life of sitting at home—and will
solve the whole question."
"But that would be Impossible,
Mary," said Brandon, Into whoso face
this new evidence of her regard bad
brought a brightening look; "utterly
Impossible. To begin wltb, no woman
could stand the voyage, not even you,
strong and vigorous as you are."
"Oh, yes I can, and I will not allow
you to stop me for that reason. I could
bear any hardship better than tbe torture of the last few weeks. In truth,
I cannot bear this at all. It ls killing
me; so what would lt be when you arc
gone and I am the wife of Louis?
Think of tbat Charles Brandon; think
of that when I am the wife of Louis.
Even lf the voyage kills me, I might
as well die oue way as another, and
then I would be with you, where lt
were sweet to die." And I had to sit
there and listen to all this foolish talk!
Brandon Insisted: "But no women
are going. As I told you, they would
not take one. Besides, how could you
escape? I will answer tbe flrst question you ever asked me. Tou are of
'sufficient consideration about tbe
court' for all your movements to attract notice. It ls impossible. We
must not think of lt. It cannot be done.

a separate room ln the ship for a young
nobleman who wishes to go to New
Spain Incognito, and will go aboard
Just before tbey sail. I will buy a
man's complete outfit and will practice
being a man before you and Sir Edwin." Here she blushed so that I
could see the scarlet even ln the gathering gloom. She continued: "As to
my escape, I can go to Windsor, and
then perhaps on to Berkeley castle,
over by Reading, where there will be
no one to watch me. You can leave at
once, and there will be no cause for
them to spy upon me when you are
gone, so It can be done easily enough.
That ls lt I will go to my sister, wjio
ls now at Berkeley castle, the other
side of Reading, yon know, and that
will make a shorter ride to Bristol
when we start"
Tbe thought, of course, could not but
please Brandon, to whom, ln the
warmth of Mary's ardor, lt bad almost
begun to offer hope, nnd he said musingly: "I wonder lf lt could be done?
If lt could—lf we could reach New
Spain, we might build ourselves a
home ln the beautiful green mountains
and hide ourselves safely away from

valley, rich with nature's bounteous
gift of fruit and flowers, shaded from

It ls only n dream, aud we had better

Brandon must have been Insane.
"No, no! It ls not n dream," Interrupted   downright  determined   Mnry.

Nothing could bo so terrible as tbat to
both of us. If you wish to go, I will
try to take you, though I die ln the

Her reply was Inarticulate, though
satisfactory, and she took his hand lu
hers as the tears ran gcutly down her
cheeks, this time tears of Joy, the flrst
she had shed for many a day.

our combined attack upon Brandon
eventually routed every lestlgo of caution and common sense tint even be

Siren logic has always been Irresistible and will continue so no doubt despite experience.
I cannot define what lt wns about
Mary tbat made her little speeches,
half argumentative, all pleadlug, so
wonderfully persuasive. Her facts
were mere fancies, and her logic was
not even good sophistry. As to real
argument and reasoning, there was
nothing of either ln them. It must
have been her native strength of char
acter and Intensely vigorous personality—some unknown force of nature operating through her occultly—that
turned the channels of other persons'
thoughts and filled them wltb her own
will. There wns magic ln ber power,
I nm certain, but unconscious mnglc to
Mnry, I am equally sure. She never

There was still another obstacle to

remedy, the Gordlnn knot treatment.
Brandou said: "It cannot be. You are
not my wife, and we dare not trust a
priest here to unite us."
"No," replied Mary, with hanging
head, "but we can—can find ono over
"I do not know how that will be. Wo
Bhall probably not find one—at least I
fear.   I do not know."
After a little hesitation she answered: "I will go with you anyway and—
and risk lt. I hope we may find a

her throat to her hair.
Brandon kissed ber and said: "You
shall go, my brave girl. You ninkj? me
blush for my fnlut hcartcdness aud
prudence. I will make you my wife In
some way as sure as there ls a God."
Soon after this Braudon forced himself to Insist on her departure, and I
went with her, full of hope and completely blinded to the dangers of our
cherished scheme. I tbluk Brandon
never really lost sight of the danger

0 lt was all arranged, and I
converted pnrt of Mary'B Jewels Into money. She said she
was sorry now she bnd not
taken De Longueville's diamonds, as
they would have added to her treasure. I,, however, procured quite a
large sum, to which I secretly added a
goodly portion out of my own store.
At Mary's request I Bent part to Bradhurst at Bristol and retained the rest
for Brandon to take with him.
A favorable answer soon came from
Bristol, giving the young nobleman a
separate room ln consideration of the
large purse he had sent.
The next step was tq procure the
gentleman's wardrobe for Mary. This

ln the columns of this interesting newspaper. Signed "Candldus" and addressed "To the Printer," the defence reads
thus ln part: "Lord B e hath been

Had he done but one tythe ef what has
been charged agnlnst him by nameless
accusera he would have been so far from
meriting favor that he would not have
even deserved to live. But those accusations are true, or they are false.

He had Chronic Inflammation of the
Kidneys—8ays his Brother Forest-
ere can Tell all About It.
Darnley, P. E. I., Aug. 22 (special)—
John J. Burns, a prominent member
of the I. 0. F., here, whose cure of
Chronic Inflammation of the Loins
and Kidneys caused a sensation some
time ago, reports that he is still ln
splendid health. "Yes," says Mr.
Burns, "my cure ls entirely satisfactory. I have had no trouble since I
used Dodd's Kidney Pills. They drove
away the disease from which I suffered for eight years.
"No, I'll never forget Dodd's Kidney Pills. The doctor could not help
me. I got so bad I could scarcely,
walk, sit or sleep. I was about to give
up entirely when an advertisement
led me to try Dodd's Kidney Pills.
Now I am in good health. Dodd's
Kidney Pills saved my life."
If any one doubts Mr. Burns' story,
he simply refers them to his brother
Foresters. They all know how he
Buffered and that Dodd's Kidney Pills
cured him.
Its Nutritive Properties Are Very
HlKh and It Is Particularly Dene-
flclal In Cases of Chronic Indication—Some Simple Recipes.
Okra ls a very Important and useful
plant, with numerous uses, tbe most
Important being for the table. The
green pods without doubt make ths
finest Boup vegetable supplied by the
garden. Cooked whole they also furnish a palatable Bide dish. The nutrient properties of okra are very high,
and lt has the additional advantage of
being an exceedingly wholesome article of food. It is erroneously called
gumbo ln many cook books and even
In some encyclopedias. The name of
the plant and Its fruit ls okra. Oumbo
Is a general term for various kinds of
soup made of lt. Okra, ln fact, ls an
excellent food much neglected.
A very Important consideration from
the alimentary point of view ls the unusually high percentage of digestible
matter. Tbat fact had been established by common experience long before
any analysis of the pod had been
thought of, for wherever the vegetable ls ln use lt ls well known that tbe
soup ls highly beneficial to persons
with weak stomachs. Often it will be
retained when nothing else can be taken, and lt has ln many cases restored
tone to digestive organs that seemed
hopelessly disordered. It ls a particularly beneficial food ln cases of dysentery and chronic Indigestion.
Xbe dried seeds, parched and ground,
are said to make an acceptable substitute for coffee. A substitute for arrowroot can be mnde from tbe roots.
The leaves, green or dry, are used, decocted, for their demulcent properties.
The Inner bark, soft nnd whlto, contains ' a strong fiber resembling flax.
The outer berk 1b also fibrous and, together with the woody part of the
plant, furnishes excellent paper stock.
Ab okra ls easily raised, lt can bo cultivated wltb profit.
For table use the pods must be cut
while tender, generally when about
three Inches long. They grow rapidly
and soon become woody. Tho plant is
very prolific, and lt will continue to
bear until touched by frost. A email
patch will more than meet tbe requirements of an ordinary family, and the
surplus may be preserved for winter
use by two convenient methods. Tbe
easier ls by drying. Silce tbe pod,
erossways, Into sections a quarter of
an Inch thick, spread thin on large
dishes or trays and expose to the sun
from day to day until thoroughly dried.
Put ln Jars or close cans and keep
free from moisture. The other method
of preservation ls by canning, which
will be explained later on. The plant
is follaclous and ornamental enough
for tbe flower garden, Tbe leaves are
large and palmatlsected, and the blossoms, which ln form resemble those of
the hollyhock, ure at flrst a brilliant
fold, wltb a purple disk. After the
first day the gold also takes a purplish
Here are some of the best recipes for
cooking okra: Okra soup—Take a
piece of beef or a marrow bone, put
on in cold water and boll until cooked,
Slice one quart of okra pods erossways
into thin sections and add, with enough
strained ripe tomatoes to give the soup
a rlcb color. Continue to boll until
the okra ls thoroughly cooked, which
.will take aboot fifteen minutes. A

will Improve the flavor. The various
gumbos, chicken, fish or crab, are made
In the same manner.
An excellent soup can be made without meat by boiling tbe okra, sliced
as above, and adding when cooked a
good sized piece of butter. Other vegetables, such as carrots, onions and
celery, may also bo used, but lovers of
okra prefer lt straight. Soup made as
above will keep In a cool place for several days and Improve with age.
A savory dish for lunch or dinner ls
made ln the following manner: Butter
a pudding dish, put ln a layer of cooked or half cooked rice, a layer of sliced
okra, a layer of ripe sliced tomatoes,
butter, pepper, salt and a little sugar
if the acid of the tomatoes be objectionable; repeat the layers until the
dish ls filled; grate breadcrumbs on
top, with pieces of butter; pour ln as
much boiling water as tbe dish will
hold; bake long enough to cook; serve
hot _>
Okra also makes a palatable vegetable dish, but ln this form It ls not always acceptable on first acquaintance.
Its substance la viscous, and for that
reason probably does not at once captivate tbe taste. Put the pods, whole,
into boiling water, wltb salt; boll
about fifteen minutes or until cooked;
pour off the water, place In a hot dish,
add pepper and plenty of good butter;
serve hot Cooked ln this way, treated
with good vinegar and served cold, It
makes a good salad.
Any housewife can do her own canning of okra. Slice and boll tbe okra
until two-thirds cooked; put ln a hot
Jar, flit full, seal tight and place ln a
dark.closet; lf desired, add strained
tomatoes and boll until the okra ls
thoroughly cooked, but be careful ln
either case to omit salt; put up ln Jars
as above. By following this method
okra soup mr.y be had throughout the
winter. •>
In the south thu taste for okra Is universal, possibly on Inheritance. Elsewhere lt may, like that for the olive,
have to be cultivated. But the taste
doea not require much cultivation, and,
once acquired, lt ls a permanent possession.
Who   Hav*   Had   Splendid   Opportunities   In   Their
Practice   af  Testing
the Merits of
West Indies For Canada,
The Canadian Grocer says on this
subject: If one ls to Judge from frequent expression*, of opinion on the
subject, sentiment ln the West Indies
la becoming more and more favorable
to Canada. Only a few months ago
a representative of The Grocer visited
the Islands; he found the trade there
kindly disposed as a whole to their
fellow-colonists away to the north, so
much so that they prefere,d to trade
with Canada, rather than with the
United States, other things being equal.
Prominent citizens went bo far as to
propose confederation with the Dominion as the most satisfactory solution
of the future ot the Islands.
Such a move would hardly be looked at askance by the motherland. Only
a week ago a speaker In the British
House of Commons made the remark
that hs would "like to see the West
Indian Government enter Into negotiations with Canada, to And out whether
at least some of the Islands could not
be better administered by the Dominion. If they were attached to Canada they would form something like a
southern zone, for the Dominion. Ths
reorganization and revitalizing of the
West Indies would result ln an alteration whlcb would add enormously to
Great Britain's Imperial strength on
the strategic highway of the world and
In the commercial centre of the West
ern Ontario." What ls more, the British
treasury has Just refused to continue
the grant of $50,000 a year to the Agricultural Department of the West Indies, and the Islanders are beginning
to fear that Great Britain Is losing interest ln their welfare and progress.
Canada recently extended a substantial preference to all importations
from the West Indies, with the result
that a substantial and rapidly increasing trade has grown up between the
two countries. From a commercial
itandpolnt, lt ls ln the Interests of
Canada to cultivate the Islands, and tt
Is to be hoped that the Federal Government will not be so forgetful of this
fact as to withdraw or even curtail the
financial Bupport to ■ the direct steamship service between Canada., and the
West Indies, which It has extended for
the past twelve years.

Hudson Tuttle, the Ohio lecturer,
made an address recently wherein he
described the pitfalls of the lecture
platform. "One pitfall," Mr. Tuttle
said, "Ib the unwise choice of examples and proofs. "A temperance lecturer wished to prove to his audience
the deadly power of- whiskey. Accordingly he caused a drop of water
to be magnified and thrown upon a
magic lantern screen. The picture
waa a terrible one. Worms bigger
than pythons, crabs bigger thnn elephants, spiders the size of a ship
fought together ln the drop of water
like fiends ln the infernal regions. The
lecturer now caused a drop of whiskey to be added to the water. "Watch
friends," he said, "watch the whls-
key-a effect." "The effect was marvellous. The liquor killed all those
ferocious horrors Instantly. Their
vast clawB and tentacles and feelers
stiffened. All became peaceful and

head. This little boy," he said, "failed ln an examination last week. It
was an examination of the Bible, and

was:—'"How many commandments
are there?' The little boy thought a
while and then he answered:—"'A
hundred.' " 'A hundred! No. of
course not" said the examiner. 'That
will do for you. "And the little boy
went out .sadly. He had failed. "But
the little boy hung about the building,
and ln a half hour another boy appeared. He was on the way to the
examination too. He asked the boy
who had failed what questions had
been put to him, and' the unhappy
failure answered:—" 'The teacher
wanted to know how many commandments there were.   What will you say
when he asks you that? I'll say
ten," was the reply. "The boy who
had failed laughed loud and long.
"'Ten!' he cried. 'Well, Just try him
with your ten. I tried him with a
hundred nnc he wasn't satisfied.'"

to fill the second. '"He continued

The Council met on Saturday Oct.

The Clerk was directed to reply
■that the repair of Cedar Cottage
'Road !was already authorized and
would be undertaken as soon as possible, in reply to a petition signed
by 17 persons. A request that 17th

their places.
An agreement between Mr. Oliver
and the Council in regard to maintaining a short road in District 318,
wlliicli is to be built by the Roadway
Co. and the Council, and kept in repair as % private road, was referred
back to the lawyers, as the Council
recognizes no claim from Mr. Oliver
re the Townsend Road, and does not
see its way to change the course of
the water which has flowed down
Center Road since it was built in
1888, unless an agreement is entered
into, with Dr. Wilson agreeing lto
have the water turned into his creek
via the Townsend Road.
Mr. Anderson was advanced $120.00
on his Bodwell Hill contract, and
$100.00 was authorized to be paid on
the Collingwood Road contract.
The James Street contract is to be
paid when finished and passed by the
Board of Works. Morgan and Scott
were paid for brushing the Magee
and Johnson Roads, $84.00.

The City is to be asked to share
tthe cost of opening about 10 chainf
of 16th Avenue to the West side of
District Lot 472, and also to make
their half of portions of the road for
one half of its length.
Councillor Wilson was authorized
to have ten chains of ditch cleaned
out on the Doman Road from the No.
2 Road North and also to get men
to lay rock and gravel, and clean out
ditch on Victoria and No. 2 Roads.
Councillor Ballson is to have some
brush cut on the Victoria Road in his
ward, between the Wilson Road and
Westminster Road. The Reeve and
Councillor Ballson to have the ditches on the Agnes Road cleaned out
for about three chains, and some
gravel put on a bad place or two.
Tenders are to be asked for building about S chains of road between
Blocks 26 and 27, in 391 and 392, and
for opening up 19th Avenue from
Westminster Avenue to Ontario, as
Mr. Walden has not signed contract

Mnch that has been published in
newspapors aud magazines, for the past
months, as to rich men and their methods, lias been educative and ought to
prove useful. It also ought to have
beeu cousohng and teudiug to contentment among those who huvo uot beeu
so successful in giithuriug.of riches us to
have been cousuuied with the appetite < r
passion of dollar-getting Tbu huijl
nnd appetite of money gathering seems
to grow, like tho drink habit or drunkenness, with over-indulgence. If men
were not so forgetful the money craze
aud niouoy worship would never hnve
taken demoniac possession, as it has for
yoars of nearly nil the people iu this
eulighteued land. All history aud all
philosophy, human and divine, has
taught the vnuity, tho wickedness and
the demoralizing influence of money
worship and the unsatisfying character
of grout possessions. Francis Bncou,
the great scholar, lawyer, statesman
nnd philosopher, the father of modern
experimental science or knowledge,
who, unfortunately, fell, through his
desire for niouoy aud power, aud the
corrupting influonces of his nge uutil
he wns pronounced "the greatest, tlie
wisest and meanest of maukind" wrote
"I can uot call riches better than the
baggage of virtue Tbe Roman word
better, impedimenta ; for as tho baggage
is to the army, so is the riches to virtue,
but it hiudreth the march; and the euro
of it sometimes loseth or disturbeth the
victory. Of great riches thore is no
real use, except it bo in the distribution;
thu rest is butcouceit; bo saith Solomon.
' Where much is.tbere nro mnny to consume it; and what hath tbo owner but
tlio sight of it with his eyes?' The
personal fruition in any man can uot
reach to feel great riches; there is a
custody of them, or a power of them,
but uo solid use to the owner."

pleasure to the purchaser. Open
work appears to be relegated to the
background, except when combined
with hand embroidery to which it is
an admirable adjunct.
Embroidery on a fine mesh is pre-,
ferrcd by many to anything of gayer
aspect, and a design of small posies
or ribbon bows done by hand may be
had iu all colors.
A treatment differing in slight degree from that generally used is tthe
tracery or outline pattern, by whicll
a daintiness is given to the foot covering not always contributed by the
padded work.
What is more to one's mind after
all is said and done, than clocking?
It lends a slenderness to the ankle
produced by no other effect. Add to
this painted designs in self or contrasting colors, and the acme of perfection seems reached, as well as the
essence of smartness in hosiery.

about, twelve inches below the long
coat-skirts, a style that tends to give
height and slenderness to the figure.
Both the skirt proper and the, skirt of
the coat flare exceedingly from the
knee down, destroying any clinging
lines. This has its advantage where
the figure happens to be quite robust,
as it rather adds to that objectionable
feature. Exptrt makers will remedy
that by decreasing the flare in both
instances. There is a rigidity in the
compact, closed-up fit of these long
coats, "besides whicll they have little
p.r no trimming, nor any relief upon
tlie fronts in.the way of lingerie adjuncts. The severity of the early
spring costumes worn, it will be remembered, by the smartest women
almost exclusively, is now accented
in the winter fashions. But the modifications made with us are so numerous that when the time comes to
put on such suits, the severely plain
one§-will'not attract attention particularly.. Those who know will,
however, recognize tliem as the correct thing. Many of these coats
have the sole line of trimming, men-
tioned among the new lines of direction, and starting from the collar
and carried down to the bottom of
the .coat in front. Furs will look
very well put on in this way, as well
as passementeries, or ajour cloth
bands, lined with white or a color.
