■ "Slie's n gootl girl." said the boy
stoutly. "She came lu and took my
part when she didn't have to, and I
like her. And 1 won't promise not to
apeak to her, neither."
The captain looked down at the lad's
square Jaw and whistled.
"Well," he said, "I don't b'lieve you
need to promise, but don't whoop too
loud about lt. Run as close to the wind
as you can. anil don't carry- all sail In
a two reef breeze Jest t'o show you
ain't afraid to.   Catch my drift?"
"Yes. sir," answered Bradley, rather
doubtfully. "You mean be chums with
the girl, but dou't tell Miss Prissy and
Miss Tempy about lt."
"No-o." Captain Ezra looked somewhat put out b.v the literal Interpretation. "That ain't Jest It. Be—well, be
easy, and— Oh, thunder! Let It go at
that. I guess you know wbat I mean.
How do you think you're goin' to like
your school?"
Bradley answered, "Pretty well, 1
, guess, when I get more used to it;"
but, although he did not say so, be was
certain that it would take some time to
get used to It As a matter of fact,
however, that very lively flrst day was
the only serious trouble for him during
the entire term. He was quick to learn
ahd so found little difficulty with his
studies and advanced as rapidly as
other boys of his age. As for his behavior, it was no worse than tbat of
any other healthy youngster. At the
end of the year he was "promoted"—
that Is, he was no longer a member of
the fourth class, but Instead proudly
left hit seat when the third was called.
Gus was "promoted" also, much to
the surprise of the "old maids," who
could not believe there was any good
in the "dog girl." They gradually ceased to urge the boy not to have anything
to do with her, for the very good reason that in this matter their urging was
of no avail. They grew to understand
their colt better as tbe months passed,
and tbey learned Just how tight a rein
it was advisable to draw.
Bradley also grew to understand the
sisters. He discovered that Miss Prissy
was tbe business woman and that she
paid all the bills, bought all the house-
bold supplies and did it without consulting Miss Tempy, whom she treated
as a sort of doll witb a mechanism that
must not be Jarred,

1 During the long summer vacation
there were chores to do, but there was
also all sorts of fun along shore, digging clnms on the flats, spearing flatfish along the edge of tbe channels or
rare and much prized trips to the fish
weirs wbere tbe nets were hauled.
Captain Titcomb came home In August
for an Intended stay of two weeks,
and be made tbe hoy happy by taking
blm for an all day sail and blue fishing]
excursion ofl Setucklt Point
That fishing trip had unexpected!
and fateful results. The captain had
called on Miss Prissy and her sister.
the morning of bis arrival in Orham'
•und, as was his custom, bad brought
each of them a present—exactly alike,''
of course. He had promised to dine at'
.the Allen bouse the following Sunday.
But it happened that Peleg Myrick
[wanted to make one of his Infrequent
visits to tbe mainland that week, and
be seized the opportunity to hail the
catboat containing Bradley and Captain Ezra as it passed his quahang
dory and beg for a passage up.
Mr. Peleg Myrick was a hermit He
lived alone In a little two room shanty
on the beach about balf a mile from
Setucklt Point. He owned a concertina that squeaked and walled and a
Mexican dog—gift of a wrecked skipper—tbat shivered all the time and
howled when the concertina was played. Peleg was certain that the howling was an attempt at singing and
boasted that Skeezlcks—that was the
dog's name—had an "ear for music
Jest like a human."
Among hia other accomplishments
Mr. Myrick numbered that of weather
prophet. He boasted tbat be could
"smell a storm further 'n a cat can
smell fish." It was odd, but he really
did seem able to foretell or guess wbat
the weather would be along the Orham coast, and the longshoremen
■wore by his prophecies.
He was a great talker when he had
■gX.J_Bfi.tP t;lk.t> and Wii» a osslp
whose flews items Vere usually about
three months old. Captain Ezra ap
predated odd characters, and he welcomed the chance to get a little fuh
out of Peleg."
"Well, Peleg," said the captain as
the catboat stood about on the flrst
leg of the homeward stretch, "what's
the news down the beach? Any of the
sand fleas got married lately?"
"Don't ask me for no news, Cap'n
Ez!" replied Mr. Myrick. "You're the
^feller to have news. You ain't married ylt, be you?"
"No; not yet I'm waitin' to see
which girl you pick out; then I'll see
what's left."
"Well, I ain't fooiln'. I thought you
might be married by now. Last time
I was up to the village—'long In June,
'twas—I see M'llssy Busteed, and she
said 'twas common talk that you was
courtln' one of the old maids."
Captain Titcomb scowled and looked
uneasily at his passenger.
"She did, hey?" be grunted,
"Yes. I told her I didn't take no
stock In that. 'Cap'n Ez,' 1 says, 'has
been courtln' too many times sence 1
can remember,' I says. 'One time
'twas Mary Emma Cahoon, 'nother
time 'twas Seth Wlngate's stster'stgal,
then ag'In 'twas' "—
"All right! All right!" broke In the
captain, glancing hurriedly at Bradley.
"Never mind that. How's the qua-
haugln* nowadays? Glttln' a fair
"Pretty fair," replied Peleg. Then,
with the persistency of the born gossip, not to be so easily diverted from
his subject, he went on: "I told M'llssy
that, but she said there wan't scarcely
a doubt that you meant bus'ness this
time. Said you fetched presents every
time you come home. Said the only
doubt ln folks' minds was whether
'twas Prissy or Tempy you was after.
Said she wa-a sure you was after one
on 'em, 'cause she as much as asked
'em one time wben sbe was at their
house, and they didn't deny lt."
Mr. Myrick talked steadily on this
and other subjects all the way to the
wharf, but' Captain Ezra was silent
and thoughtful. He shook hands with
Bradley at the gate of the Traveler's
Rest and said goodby In an absent-
minded way.
"I s'pose you'll be 'round to dinner
Sunday, Cap'n Ez?" said the boy.
"Hey? Sunday? Well, I dont know.
It might be tbat I shall be called back
to the schooner sooner than I expect
Can't tell."
Sure enough, the next day the sisters received a note from their expected guest saying that he was obliged
to leave at once for Portland and could
not, therefore, be with them on Sunday. The ladles were disappointed,
but thougbt nothing more of the matter at the time. It was nearly six
months before the captain visited Orham again, and during this visit he
did not come nenr the big house. He
waylaid Bradley, however, asked blm
all about himself, how he was getting
on at school and the like, but when
the boy asked If be, the captain,
wasn't "comin' round to see tbe folks
pretty soon" the answer was vague
and unsatisfactory.
"Why, I—I don't know's I'll have
time," was the reply. "I'm pretty busy,
and— Give 'em my regards, will you.
Brad? I've got to be runnin' on now.
So long,"
It was tbe same during the next
"shore leave," the following November. Captain Titcomb saw Bradley
several times, gave him a six bladed
Jackknlfe and took blm for a drive
over to the big cranberry swamp owned by the Ostable company, but he did
not call on the old maids.
Three more years of school and vacations,-with "chores" and sailing nnd
cranberry picking, followed. Bradley
was sixteen. His voice, having passed
through the squeaky "changing" period, now gave evidence of becoming
what Miss Tempy called a "beautiful
louble bass, Jest like father's." He
was large for his age, and his shoulders were square. He was mora particular about his clothes now, and,bis
neckties were no longer selected by
Miss Tempy. To be Been with girls
was not so "sisslfled" in his mind as It
used to be, but he still stuck to Gus.
and she was bis "first choice" at parties, and he saw her home from prayer
meeting occasionally.
As for the "4<f_ girl" herself, sbe, too,
paid more attention to clothes, and her
pets—though still numerous and Just as
disreputable ln appearance—were made
to behave with more decorum. Her
bair was carefully braided now, her
dresses came down to ber boot tops,
and Miss Tempy grudgingly admitted
tbat-.'Tf '.twu'^flnjbodi else. I ghouU
lay'She \Tas* Ske-S^W be"gbod"I3o_lh'
When she grows up."
The "last day" came, and Bradley
and Gus were to graduate. In Orham
there is no graduation day. The eventful ending of the winter term ls the
"last day," and all the parents and relatives, together with the school committee and the clergymen, visit the
school to sit stiffly ou the settees aud
Witness the ceremonies.
That evening after the "last day" exercises at school Bradley sat at home
reading in the dining room. Miss
Tempy, ln the sitting room, was going
over, for the fortieth time since It was
written, the wonderful argument In
fnvor of n "republican form of government," whleh Bradley had composed and had read at the school that day.
As her sister entered the room sbe
dropped the roll of paper In her lap
and said solemnly:
"Prissy Allen, It's my belief that
when that boy.flrst came here and I
said that I wanted him to go to college
and be a minister I was Inspired. I
declare I do! I've Jest been readin'
that piece of his again, and It beats
any sermon I ever heard."
Miss Prissy seated herself in a rocker
and looked solemnly at her sister. For
a minute she gazed without speaking.
Then suddenly, as lf she had made up
her mind, she rose, gave the dining
room door a swing that would hnve
shut it completely hsd not the corner
of a mat Interfered, and, coming back
"Tempi/, uie'iie hardly got any money
left I"
to her chair, said slowly, "Tempy, I'm
afraid we'll never be able to send
Bradley to college,"
The precious manuscript fell from
Miss Tempy's lup to the floor.
"Why—why. Prissy Allen!" she exclaimed.   "What do you mean?"
"I   mean  we can't do  wbat we've
hoped to  do.    Oh,  dearl    I—I  don't
know what we'll do.    Tempy, we've
hardly got any money left.."

» Undertakers  for  Birds.
A branch of business conducted by
a Philadelphia establishment devoted
to supplying and boarding feathered
pets is that of preparing dead birds
for burial. Children who have lost
their canaries or other songsters
through disease or accident bring the
little cadavers'to the store to be laid
out in becoming style. Tiny coffins,
each just large enough for a bird,
are kept in stock, also quantities of
pale pink and blue cotton. The latter is used for filling the bird coffin,
and on this the bird is laid. The ef-
feet when birdie's body is "decently"
composed on the pink and blue cotton is sufficient to console the little
mourning master or mistress. The
children then convey their coffin
away for burial. Funeral expense*
are light.

"I thought I could," apologized tbe
small town citizen. "I bave a bad
eye, and I only expected to see half of

"Then you'll have to get two tickets,"
said the doorkeeper. "If you only bave
one good eye It'll take you twice as

A Deal In Buffaloes.
The Canadian Government has cloned a deal for the purchase of a herd
of buifalo from M. Pablo, of Flathead
Reserve. Montana. This herd is
the largest in America. Thia herd is
SO strong. Some of tbem will be shipped to Western Canada in May, and
the balance in August. They * ill be located ior the present at Elk Park,
east of Edmonton, but it is the intention at a later date to transfer them
to the New National Park, which is
to be established at some point in
tbe Bocki  Mountiina.
They May Ba Daintily Trimmed With
Lace and  Ribbons..
The dainty aprons which appeal so
strongly to a woman can be made to
be both useful and ornamental. Both
for fa_.<cy work and afternoon tea or
tor n chafing dish party a pretty apron
Is a very necessary as well as aa attractive addition to one's dress.
Every one likes a novelty, and even
the work apron can be cut In a new
shape, while those for afternoon tea
or to be used with the chafing dish
can be made as charming as possible.
They may be very elaborate with
lace and embroidery and bright ribbons to add to their beauty or quite
simple of fine sheer material, with a
featherstltched ruffle, edged with Valenciennes lace, as the only decoration.
Some women wear fancy nprons
when they are dressed for an afternoon nt home, and a tine white one cau
be changed ln appearance by having
several shades of delicate ribbons to
use on different occasions.
These aprons are tiny aflairs, Just
large enough to serve the purpose and
preserve the name. The more useful
work apron should be of generous proportions, as li is not generally used for
dressy occasions.
Colored embroidery is used frequently upon fancy aprons with dainty effect and Is a welcome change from the
all white embroidery.
Attractive little aprons of colored
lawn or dimity are shown to be worn
with light dresses. One of pale blue
lawn, embroidered with white mercerised cotton, will be quite effective. Tbe
ruffle on this Is graduated in shape
and lies perfectly smooth along the
The hem ls finished with feather-
stitching, also ln white, and edged with
Valenciennes lace. Large polka dots
are embroidered around the edge ot
the apron wbere tbe raffle ls joined,
and this hem may also be finished wltb
feathers tltchlng.
The band for the top Is of wide cam-
M-lc beading, throngfa which pale blue
satin ribbon ls run for the strings.
Any light color, also white, can bs
used for this aprog.
Waterloo Jack Recovers.
Waterloo Jack, the famous collecting dog. who has been an in-patient
of the Animals' hospital, Bloomsbury,
for two months, left the other day to
resume work. His first business was
to take an active part in collecting
at the "Country Fair" in aid of Our
Dumb Friends' League, which opened
recently at the Botanic gardens.
During his stay at the hospital Jack
has been fed on three Bpecial diets-
first, meat extracts, eggs and milk,
and brandy; next, filleted plaice; and
finally, biscuits, sheep's head, gravy,
liver, vegetables, and fish.
Jack, who has collected nearly £1,-
000 at Waterloo station, was sent to
the hospital for the removal of a tumor on hia o'Hri-.
The Perfect Servant.
The thoroughly trained English servant Is _ his wuy the most perfect kind
of servant to be found anywhere, and
In his station and for bis duties be Is
not to be matched In the world. Where
will yoa find any men so competent In
their work, to completely trained and
apparently emotionless In manner, so
punctual, so clean, so smart as an
English butler, cone-man, footman or
valet? Certainly not on the eo._tlnent
of Europe, In the United States, ln
Canada or In Australia.
Judge and Dootor Too.
Lord Bramwell, a notable wit of tbe
English bench, was once sitting ln a
case wbere tbe prisoner was accused ot
"My lord, my client Is not a common
thief," urged tbe barrister for the defense. "He ls suffering from kleptomania."
"That Is exactly tbe disease I am
here to cure," replied Lord Bramwell
blandly.—Youth's Companion.
A Long Felt Want.
"You get right out of here!" snapped
the vinegary faced female. "I don't
need no book!"
"Yes, you do, madam," said tbe book
agent as be went out and closed tbe
gate. "You need two—a grammar and
a book on etiquette. Good day." And
he got ont of hearing distance long before she bad said all she wanted to.—
A Wonderful Echo.
Two miles from Milan, Italy, ls the
most remarkable echo in tbe world. It
Is at the castle of Slmonetta and repeats tbe shot of a pistol sixty times.
No Bottom Found In Any of the Wells
Bored In Curacoa.
Curaeoa is one of the queerest little
Islands In the Caribbean sea. It lies
sixty miles north of Venezuela, Is about
sixty miles long and twelve or fourteen miles wide, and it bas a population of more than 50,000.
There ls no means of procuring fresh
water on the Island except by saving
rainwater ln reservoirs. A number of
wells have been bored under the supervision of tthe Dutch government, to
which lt belongs, but each ended In a
A curious statement regarding these
borings is made by the inhabitants of
the island. They saw that in each
ahd every case after a certain depth
was reached the tools dropped out of
sight, Indicating that there ls no solid
foundation to the Island. The borings
were made In low places and through
hills and in about thirty different
places, each with the same ultimate
result A few wells have been dug
to a lesser depth and brackish, unpleasant tasting water ls obtained, fit
only for manufacturing purposes.
The approach of the .rainy season la
always an interesting time. The water ln the reservoir is low at this time,
and the natives eagerly await the opportunity to gather a fresh supply.

Men   Who,   Had   They   Lived,   Might
Have Changed History.
Julius Caesar was assassinated when
he had almost completed the task of
consolidating the administration and!
dominion of the Roman empire, andr
his death opened the way to that des-"
potlsm and corruption which ultimately undid his work. Henry of Navarro-
was killed when he had almost hen led'
the differences between Catholic anil
Protestant which subsequently rent
not only France, but Europe, and William the Silent also fell when he wns-
on tbe point of uniting tbe Nctherluntl
provinces into a compact barrier
against tbe encroachments of Spain.
In English history Lord Cltve died at
the moment when he was the one man
who could bave saved the Amerlcan.
colonlea and kept the Anglo-Saxon nice
united. But there Is the case of M Ira-
beau. He was literally tbe one man ln
France who could have averted the-
horrors of the revolution, saved and!
reformed the monarchy and so spared
Europe the murderous career of Napoleon and all tbe devastation lt brought.
If he had lived ten or even five year?
longer, the hiBtory nott>nly of France,,
but of Europe and the world, would.,
have been different It ls, In fact sufficient to fny that he would have made-

Causing Keen Distress From the Dreadful Itching--
Sometimes Lasts for Years—Cure Effected By
Dr. Chase's Ointment
The first indication of eczema is a
red pimple, or blister-like eruption.
The points run together, making- a
moistened patch, which "weeps" at
first, and then dries into a crust.
The intense itching of eczema of
the face and scalp is very hard for
the little one to bear, and the result
is scratching until free bleeding takes
place, and recovery is further retarded. Besides the suffering from
the distressing itching, the child is
restless and sleepless.
When left to itself, eczema runs
on indefinitely, covering the body
with sores, but fortunately there is
positive cure in the use of Dr. Chase's
Ointment, a preparation which, by
its marvelous soothing and healing
powers, brings quick relief from itching and heals up the sores.
Mr. Wm. Craft, jr., Burk's' Falls,
Ont., writes:. "Our little boy, aged
three years, broke out with eczema
all over his face, hands and back
and we had a terrible time trying
to relieve his suffering. It was so
bad that when he scratched it would
almost moke the blood flow. The
use of Dr. Chase's Ointment quickly
brought relief and made a thorough
cure, as there has never been any
return of this disagreeable ailment.
We always keep Dr. Chase's medicines in the house and find them
very useful." ,
Mrs. M. McCann, 4 Short street,
St. John, N.B., writes: "My little
girl, three years old, had her face
covered with eczema, and it waB
spreading over her body. I tried
many different ointments, and the
doctor could do her no good. A
friend of mine advised me to try Dr.
Chase's Ointment, and she was completely cured by one box. I cannot
praise Dr. Chase's Ointment enough
for the good it has  done her."
Dr. Chase's Ointment haB proven
especially successful in the cure of
baby eczema, as well as in the prevention of this torturing disease,
when used for chafing and skin irritation, in which eczema finds its beginnings; 60 cents a box, at all
dealers, or Edmanson, Bates & Co.,

"What sort of company?"
"A lot of teetotalers!" was the

"Do you mean to say teetotalers

Thia South American Giant la the Biggest Bug In the World.
To the Hercules beetle, a giant among
insects, which Is found In certain portions of Central and South America as
well as In the Island of Dominica, one
of the British West Indies, belongs the
distinction of being the biggest bug ln
the world. In appearance this creature
is anything but prepossessing and
looks as If It belonged with pink
snakes, purple spiders and other creatures of the Imagination.
It ls a common trait of tourists and
travelers to make little of anything
Been In foreign lands, especially In the
little West Indian islands, and to de-
olare that similar things of vastly
greater size or better quality occur lq
"God's couutry." When they ma
across the Hercules beetle, however,
they are obliged to acknowledge themselves beaten.
Although so formidable In appearance, this Insect Is perfectly harmless.
It lives ln the heavy forests and feeds
on the sweetish sap or gum of native
trees. The larva, or grub, is about
four Inches long nnd as thick as a
man's thumb and looks like a huge
white maggot. It ls considered a delicacy by tbe native negroes nnd earlbs,
who roast It In hot ashes and say that
It tastes like roasted nuts.
Clumsy In appearance, the Hercules
beetle possesses great powers of flight
and tn the outlying villages It Is not
uncommon for oue of these huge creatures to enter the native houses, being
attracted thereto by the lights. The invariable result ls n prompt extinguishing of tbe candle b.v the wind created
by the beetle's buzzing wings, accompanied by screams from the Inmates
of the house, who Imagine a Jumble, or
evil spirt, has Invaded their dwelling.
A popular belief among the natives
Is thnt the Hercules beetle saws off
limbs of trees by grasping them between the two hornlike appendages
and flying round nnd round. This ls a
manifest Impossibility, as the Insect
has but little power In tbe horns, nnd,
moreover, the upper one Is lined with
a soft, velvety hair, which would b*
rub'ied off at once by any friction.

Perhaps the word "ambraculum" In
the Vulgate version of the history of
Jonah suggested to tbe author of the

"God mocks me with His summers
and His springs,
His frosts are sent against me," so
I said,
Speaking in anger, "all my flowers
are dead,   .
And dead are flown the tender summer wings.
He ls too careless of His little things;
His giant ages crush the   slender
His barren tempests   wither   men
and flowers!"
A calm voice wandering through the
stubble sings: —
"All hall the harvest and the dust to
Nor may endeavor, ended, smile in
And  you  that whimper    in    the
autumn wind
Blown with its leaves—give o'er, for
Must is Must:
Yet winds sigh not therefor, nor
doth rain weep;
Frosts are not    wasteful,   nor is
death unkind."

The Function of an p.
Advertisement V
is first to draw attention and to leave a favorable IJ
and as far as possible a lasting impression. y
The first and principal object of a very grc_t denl of advertising 0^,
is not directly that of selling goods, but of establishing a worthy -. J
fame—a recognized reputation—to make the goods and the house j/
kuown.   Customers must come with some idea of tho goods tbey y
seek, the more knowledge the better.   With confidence inBpirod £&
by effective advertising, it is then np to tlio salesman to do the f*
rest—to make good by courtesy nnd a skillful presentation of the 11*
wares which should be up to all that has beeu advertised. \I

medium for reaching Mt.   Pleasant People—to *\f

"The March of the Men or*Harleeh."
In military music the march occupies
a prominent position and bas been
employed not only to stimulate courage, but also from about tbe middle
of the seventeenth century to Insure
tho orderly advance of troops. One of
y_e earliest instances of rhythmical
march is the Welsh war strain, "The
March of the Men of Harlech," wblcb
ls supposed to have originated during
the siege of Harlech castle ln 1468.
In England the military march was
of somewhat later development. Sir
John Hawkins in his "History of Music" tells us that its characteristic waa
dignity and gravity, in which respect
it differed greatly from the French,
which was brisk and alert, and apropos of this subject the same author
quotes a witty reply of an Elizabethan
soldier to the French Marshal Biron's
remark that "the English march, being
beaten by tbe drum. Is slow, heavy
and sluggish." "That may be true,"
he said, "but slow as it ls it has
traversed your master's country from
one end to the other." — Chambers'
Journal..     .

Canada  Leading.
The Cobden Club issues a reply to
the proposals before the Imperial Conference, and says: "The significanee
of the Canadian policy is that it represents the most fully conscious evolution of tho colonial principle, an
evolution not towards closer union,
but consistently towards larger independence in political, military and
economic action. Where Canada to-day
stands our other self-governing colonies will stand to-morrow."
The pamphlet criticizes the preference proposals and discounts the
value of Canadian preference, which
Canada cannot increase if she is consistent with her protective policy. It
also states that the Canadian bounty,
policy is hostile to the validity of preference. The New Zealand and Australian proposals are merely instruments to increase the stringency of

Poultry On  the  Farm.
Farmers are coming to realize that
nothing on the farm pays larger returns than poultry for the money and
time invested. Therefore they are
giving mon and more attention to
their poultry each year and seeking
the best ways t<s improve thei-
flocks. Many flocks are earning big
profits for their owners,' but these
owners are men that give poultry the
place on tlie farm that it should fill.
The care of such flocks take thought,
time and money, but they give ample
return for each and all of these expenditures. Why uot try it yourself?

Polite  Impoliteness.
SOME one hart said to Louis XIV of
of  France   '.hat  Lord   Stair,   then
English    a.nbassador    ln    France,
understood the art of politeness best of
any man ln the world.
"I shall put him to the proof," said
I the king.
Next day as the royal party were
about to enter a carriage to drive to
the king's hunting-lodge the king
nodded to Lord Stair. "Enter, my
lord," said he.
To the great surprise of the courtiers
Lord Stair promptly took his seat
before the king.
Louis was convinced that the people
had spoken the truth, for truly the
finest politeness was prompt obedience to the king.
IT is not every stork that has the distinction of wearing a wooden leg,,
or that has such care as Marinette.   She lives in far-off Algiers.
Some time ago Marinette broke her leg through an accident.   Her
master set it, but was finally obliged to cut it off.   You may be suro
the stork must have been a great pet, that all this should be done for her.
A wooden leg was then made for Marinette, and her master has another
one handy, in case anything should happen to the one she is now wearing,
Marinette is as proud as proud can be of her wooden leg, and struts
around with added dignity.   It is doubtful if she would want her owr " .g

VERY stylish and effective homemade curtains or portieres may be
made even by comparatively Inexperienced needlewomen.
For the summer home, Instead of buying costly curtains ol silk, brocades or
even the bamboo beaded curtains, which
are so often seen and which are terrible dust-catchers, at the best, why not
make yourself straight, graceful curtains of burlap or arras cloth?
These materials are comparatively Inexpensive, and can be bail In the most
artistic colorings. The dull, soft greens,
browns and coppers are among the most
popular shades, though very stylish curtains may be made from tan or deep
cream shades, with the designs ln
brighter colors.
Cut the curtains full enough to hang
In graceful folds, and finish with a ten-
Inch hem and a casing wide enough to
run easily on a rod. If both sides are to
be exposed, as when used between two
rooms opening one Into the other, make
the nil-tains double.
The decoration for silk curtains
should be simple but striking. It can
be of bold, dashing embroidery designs,
done ln heavy rope silks, or the new
linen applique w"1 be even more effective.
Conventional perforated designs may
be bought at any up-to-date decorative
art rooms for stamping at home, or the
linen itself, stamped and ready to r.p-
ply, can be secured.
The curtain and linen to be appllqued
are stamped In the same pattern, ond
the linen Is then dampened, Ironed and
basted to the corresponding design on
the-' foundation. The edges are then
neatly and firmly overcast to prevent
fraying, and, later, worked with a long
ond short buttonhole stitch, or are lln-
tshed by a courso couching over a heavy
rope silk. Sometimes the applique Is
done with a cord or flat braid.
Thl? work Is capable of original and
artistic color schemes. A very charming
portiere seen recently was cf tan-colored burlap, with a dashing pomegranate
design done in dull reds, or Ihe fruit
outlined tn a darker shade of the same
color. Several shades of dull olive were
used for the stems and foliage. c_?h-

a very swet soprano of good rauge
and power. The vocal numbers by
Mrs. J. McPherson, "A Song of
Sleep," aiid Mr. Wm. Hicks, "Two
Grenadiers" were well rendered and
received encores. The male quar-
ttte, Messrs. Hicks. Bros., sang harmoniously and were encored. Rev.

the various readings he gave, especially in the selection from King
John, Act IV., scene 1. Rev. Mr.

audience by explaining he had been
called away to perform a marriage
