Or, The Love Story of Charles Brandon and Mary Tudor, the King's Sister, and
Happening In the Reign of His August Majesty King Henry the Eighth
Rewritten %.nd Rendered Into Modern English From Sir Edwin
C«k-_oden'> Memoir
Copi/riflM, 1898 ami 1901. by Uie Bowan-MerriU Company
BE Caskodens take grent pride
In our uucestry. Some persons, I know, bold all that to
be totally un-Soloinonlike and
tbe beigbt of vanity, but tbey usually
have no ancestors of whom to be
proud. The man who does not know
who his great-grandfather was naturally enough would not caro what he
was. The Caskodeus have pride of uucestry because they know both who
and what.
We have a right to be proud, for
there is nn unbroken male lino from
William the Conqueror down to the
present time. In this lineal list are
tourteen barons—the title lapsed when
Charles I. fell—twelve Knights of the
Garter nnd forty-seven Knights of tho
Bath nnd other orders. A Cuskoden
distinguished himself by gallant service under the great Norman and was
given rich English lauds and a fair
Saxon bride, albeit an unwilling one,
as his reward. With this fair, unwilling Saxon bride und her long plait of
yellow hair goes a very pretty, pathetic
story, -which I miVy tell you at some future time lf youf.take kindly to this.
A Caskoden was Benesckal to William
Rufus and sat at the rich, half barbaric banquets lu tho first great hall.
Still another was one of tbo doughty
barons Who wrested from John the
great charter, England's declaration of
independence; another was high lu the
councils of Henry V. I have omitted
one whom I should not fnil to mention, Adjodlka Oaskoden, who was a
member of the "dunce parliament of
Henry IV., so culled becauso there
Were no lawyers ln It.
It Is true that in the time of Edward
IV. a Caskoden did stoop to trade, but
lt was trade of the most dignified, honorable sort—he was a goldsmith, and
his guild, as you know, were tho bankers nnd International clearance house
for people, kings and nobles.
Now, lt has been the custom of the
Caskodens for centuries to keep n record of events as they have happened,
both private and public. Some are In
the form of diaries and Journals, like
those of Pepys and Evelyn; others In
letters, like the Pus tons'; others, again, ln
verse and song, like Chaucer's and the
Wnter Poet's, and still others ln the
more pretentious form of memoir and
chronicle. These records we always
have kept Jealously within our family,
thinking it vulgar, like the Pastons, to
submit our private affairs to public
There can, however, be no reason why
those parts treating solely of -outside
matters should be so carefully guarded, and.I have determined to choose for
publication sucb portions as do not divulge family secrets or" skeletons, and
. [which really redound to family honor.
For this occasion I have selected
from the memoir of my worthy ancestor nnd namesake, Sir Edwin Caskoden,
grandson of the goldsmith and master
of the dance to Henry VIII., the story
of Charles Brandon and Mary Tudor,
pister to the king.
This story ls so well known to the
gtudent of English history that I fear
Its repetition will lack that zest which
attends the development of nn unforeseen denouement, but lt Is of so great
Interest and is bo full In its sweet, fierce
manifestation of the one thing Insoluble by time—love—that I will nevertheless rewrite lt from old Sir Edwln'a
\P sometimes happens, Sir Edwin says, that when a woman
will she won't, and when she
won't she will, but usually ln
the end tho adage holds good. That
sentence may not be luminous with
meaning, hut I will give you an Illustration.
I think lt was ln the spring of 1500—
et any rate, soon after the death of the
Modern Solomon, as Queen Catherine
called her.old father-ln-lnw, the Iato
King Henry VII.~th._t his august majesty Henry VIII., "the vndubltnte flower and very Uelre of both the sayd Linages," came to the throne of England
nnd tendered me the honorable position
of master of tbe dauce at bis sumptuous court.
Aa to "worldly goods," as some of
the now religionists call wealth, 1 was
very comfortably off, having inherited
from my father, one of tho counselors
of Henry VII., a very competent fortune lndeod. How my worthy father
contrived to savo from tho greedy
hand of that rich old mlaer bo great a
fortune I am suro I cannot tell. He
was tho only man of my knowledge
who did it, for the old king had a reach
ns long as tho kingdom, and, upon one
pretext or another, upproprlutcd to
himself everything on which he could
lay bis hands. My father, however,
was himself pretty shrewd lu money
matters, having Inherited along with
his fortune a rare knack at keeping lt.
His father was a goldsmith in the time
of King Edward and enjoyed the marked favor of that puissant prince.
Being thus ln a position of affluence,
I cared nothing for the fact that littlo
or no emolument went With tbe office,
lt was the honor which delighted me.
Besides, I was thereby au Inmate of
the king's palace and brought Iuto in-
tlmnfp relations with the court, and.
above all, with the finest ladles ot tbo
land—the best company n mnn can
keep, since lt ennobles IiIb mind with
better thoughts, purifies bis heart with
cleaner motives and makes him gentle
without detracting from his strength.
It was an office any lord of the kingdom might have been proud to hold.
Now, some four or five years nfter
my Induction Into this honorable olllce
there came to court news of a terrible
duel fought down ln Suffolk, out of
which only one of the four combatants
had conie alive—two, ratber, but one of
them In a condition worse than death.
The first survivor was a son of Sir
William Brandon, and the second was
a nian called Sir Adam Judson,   The
story went that young Brandon and
his elder brother, both just home from
the continental wars, had met Judson
ut an Ipswich inn, where there bad been
considerable gambling among tbem.
Judson hud won from the brothers a
large stun of money which they had
brought home, for, notwithstanding
their youth, the elder being but twenty-six and the younger about twenty-
four years of age, they had gained
great honor and considerable profit iu
wurs, especially the younger, whose
name wns Charles.
It ls a little hard to fight for money
nud then to lose it. by a single spot upon the die, but such is the fate of him
who plays, and a philosopher will swallow his Ul luck nnd take to fighting for
more. The Brandons could have done
this easily enough, especially Charles,
who was an offhand philosopher, rather
fond of a good humored light, had it not
been that in the course of play one
evening the secret of Judson's winning
had been disclosed by a discovery that
he cheated. The Brandons waited until they were sure, and then trouble
began, which resulted in a duel on the
second morning following.
This Judson was a Scotch gentleman
of whom very little was known except
that he was counted the most deadly
and most cruel duelist of the time. He
was called the "Walking Death," and
it ls said he took pride in the appellation. He boasted that he had fought
eighty-seven duels, in which he had
killed seventy-five men, and It was considered certain death to meet bim. I
got the story of tho duel afterward
from Brandon as I give it here.
John was the elder brother and when
the challenge came was entitled to fight
first, a birthright out of which Charles
tried in vain to talk him. The brothers told their father, Sir William Brandon, and at the appointed time father
and sons repaired to the place of meeting, where they found Judson and his
two seconds ready for the fight.
Sir William was still a vigorous man,
With few equals in sword play, aud the
sons, especially the younger, were better men and more skillful-than their fa-
ther had ever been, yet they felt that
this duel meant certain death, so great
was Judson's fame for skill and cruelty. Notwithstanding they were so handicapped with this feeling of Impending
evil, they met their duty without a
tremor, for the motto of their houso
was "Malo Mori Quam Fedral."
It was a misty morning in March.
Brandon has told me since that when
his elder brother took his stand it was
at once manifest that he was Judson's
superior both in strength and skill, but
nfter a few strokes the brother's blade
bent double and broke off short at tho
hilt when lt Bhould have gone home.
Thereupon Judson, with a malignant
smile of triumph, deliberately selected
his opponent's heart aud pierced it with
liis sword, giving the blade1 n twist as
he drew it out ln order to cut and mutilate the more.
In nn instant Sir William's doublet
was off, and he was in his dead son's
tracks, ready to avenge him or to die.

"Fight, you bloodhoundl"
Again tho thrust which should have
killed broke the sword, and the father
died as the son had died.
After this came youug Charles, expecting, but so great was his strong
heart, not one whit fearing, to Ho beside his dead father and brother. He
knew he was the superior of both ln
strength and skill, and his knowledge
of men and the noble art told hlin they
had each been the superior ot Judson,
but the fellow's bund seemed to be tho
baud of death. An opening came
through Judson's unskillful play which
gnve youug Brandon an opportunity
for a thrust to kill, but his blade, like
his father's and his brother's, bent
double without penetrating. Unlike
the others, however, lt did not break,
and the thrust revealed the fact that
Judson's skill as a duelist lay In a shirt
of mall which it was useless to try
to pierce. Aware of this, Brandon
knew that victory was his and that
soon he would have avenged the murders, that had gone before. He saw
that his adversary was strong neither
lu wind nor arm and bad not the skill
to penetrate his guard in a week's trying, so he determined to fight on the
defensive until Judson's strength
Bhould wane, and then kill him when
and how ho chose.
After a time Judson began to breathe
hard und his thrusts to luck force.
"Boy, I would spare you," lie said.
"I have killed enough of your tribe.
Put up your sword and call It quits."
Young Brandon replied: "Stand your
ground, you Howard. You will be a
dead man as booh as you grow a little
weaker. If you try to run, I will
thrust you through the neck as I
would a cur. Listen how you snort. I
shall soon have you. You are almost
gone. Y'ou would spare mc, would you?
I could preach a sermon or dance a
hornpipe while I am killing you. I
will not break my sword against your
coat of mall, but will wait until yoa
fall f rqm weakness, and then,—  Fight,
you b.ooanouna."
.Iiulson was pale from exhaustion.
apd his brouth was coming In gasps as
he tried to keep the merciless sword
from ills throat. At last, by a dexterous
twist of his blade, Brandon sent Judson's sword flying thirty feet aWay.
The fellow started to run, but turned
und fell upon bis knees to beg for life.
Brandon's reply was n Hashing circle
of steel, and bis sword point cut leugth-
wise through Judson's eyas and the
bridge of his nose, leaving him sightless
and hideous for life—a revenge compared to which death would have been
The duel created a sensation throughout the kingdom, for, although little
was known as to who Judson wns, bis
fame as a duelist was as broad as the
land. He had been at court upon several occasions, and at one time, upon
tbe king's birthday, had fought In the
royal lists. So the matter came ln for
its shure of consideration by king and
courtiers, and young Brandon became
a person of Interest. He became still
more so when some gentlemen who had
served with him ln the continental wars
told the court of hlB daring and bravery and related stories of deeds at arms
worthy of the best knight ln Christendom.
He had an uncle at the court, Sir
Thomas Brandon, the king's master of
horse, who thought lt a good opportunity to put his nephew forward and let
him take his chance at winning royal
favor. The uncle broached the'subject
to the king, with favorable Issue, and
Charles Brandon, led by "the hand of
fate, came to London court, where that
same fate had In keeping for him events
such as seldom fall to the lot of man.
HEN wo learned that Brandon
was coming to court, every
one believed he would soon
gain the king's favor.   How
much that -would amount to none could
tell, as the king's favorites were of
many sorts nnd taken from all conditions of men. There was Master Wol-
sey, a butcher's son, whom be had flrst
made almoner, then chief counselor and
bishop of Lincoln, soon to be bishop of
-York and cardinal of the holy Roman
church. «
From the other extreme of life came
young Thomas, Lord Howard, heir to
the Earl of Surrey, and my Lord of
Buckingham, premier peer of the realm.
Then sometimes would the king take
a yeoman of the guard and make him
his companion ln Jousts and tournaments solely because of his brawn and
bone. There were others whom he
kept close by him ln the palace because of their wit and the entertainment they furnished, of which class
was I, and, I flatter myself, no mean
To begin with, being In no way dependent on the king for money, I never
drew a farthing from the royal treasury. This, you may be sure, did me no
harm, for, although tho king sometimes
delighted to give, he always hated to
pay. There were otlier good reasons,
too, why I should bo a favorite with
Ihe king.
My appointment as master of the
dance, I am sure, was owing entirely
to my manner. My brother, tho baron,
who stood high with the king, was not
friendly toward me because my father
had seen fit to bequeath me so good a
loiupetcucy ln place of giving it all to
'.he firstborn and leaving me dependent
upon the tender mercies of an elder
brother. So I had no help from Jilm
nor from anyone else. I was quite
imall of stature aud therefore unable
to compete with lance and mace with
bulkier men, but I would bet with any
man, of any size, on any game, at any
place and time, ln any amount, and, If
I do say It, who perhaps should not, I
basked in the light of many a fair
smile whlcb larger men bad sighed for
In vain.
I did not know when Brandon flrst
_.imc to London. We had all remained
at Greenwich while the king went up
to Westminster to waste his time with
matters of state and quarrel wltb the
parliament, then sitting, over the
amount of certain subsidies.
Mory, the king's sister, then some
eighteen or nineteen years of age, a
perfect bud, Just blossoming Into a perfect flower, had gone over to Windsor
on a visit to her elder sister, Margaret
of Scotland, and the palace was dull
enough. Brandon, lt seems, had been
presented to Henry during this time nt
[Westminster and had, to some extent
,ut least, become a favorite before I
[met him. Tbe flrst time I saw him was
'at a Joust given by the. king at Westminster ln celebration of the fact that
he had coaxed a good round subsidy
out of parliament
The queen and her ladles had been Invited over, and lt wob known that Mary would be down from Windsor nnd
come home with the king and the court
to Greenwich when we should return.
So we all went over to Westminster the
night before the Jousts and were up
bright and early next morning to see all
that was to be seen.

"That ho is," replied the queen, "and

learn all about him and report.

their "Oyez!" and our conversation was

on nn errand and over to Wolsey's houso
to borrow a book. While there Master

he proved to be no other than Charles

Very Need of His Suffering Flesh
Rings Out As a Message For the
Centuries—No One So Weak, So
Feeble, So Utterly a Waif In the
Gutter That He Cannot Join in
Thla Cry.
Jesus knowing that air things were
now accomplished, that the scripture
might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.—SL
John, xix., 28.
These are the last words of the Son
of Man before His death to mankind.
They aro uttered for a purpose by one
dying in full possession of His faculties. All uttered from tho cross before
seems to discourage human aspirations; this unites Him with the
feeblest cry of human flesh.
No one so weak, so feeble, so utterly
a waif in the gutter that he cannot
join in this cry; a dog can whine it!
The lonely One of Calvary nover for a
moment forgets His mission. Every
little one may understand His last
word. The very need of His suffering
flesh rings out as His message for the
centuries. The same hand that created a tongue to cleave to tho Jaws by
thirst has turned It Into the sweetest
message ever read by true hearts and
sincere lives.
If one look for a sign of the divine
nature of this Mnn let him go back
and mark how carefully He has prepared for this His last will and testa-
ment before the cross has forced lt
from His lips. He has set forth the
final Judgment when He in His glory

alone, but with all the holy angels and
the crowd of earth around Him. The
whole scene is now reversed, and the
desolate Ono has the companionship
of heaven and the fakirs' of religion

His last words on earth were heard
by a poor mercenary of the Roman
Emperor, hired to stand at the cross
until the end. This poor soldier had
taken a sponge and dipped it In his
vessel ot wine and touched it to the
lips of the crucified One. Poor fellow,
he little knew how ln coming centuries men would envy him this simple
act of a completely human heart.
This mere impulse of a - sweet
human nature had marked the brink
of a gulf between God and man, and
oh the other side, separated by centuries, stands the One who had..thirsted. Across the gulf comes the fbng
deferred answer of the Son of God,
"I was thirsty and ye gave me drink."
Between the Roman soldier and the
Son of Man is the crowd In the gulf
(we are in it), crying, "When were
you thirsty and when did wo give you
drink?" And then the, tender audi
fearful answer comes, "Inasmuch as

A Serious Charge.
Victoria, B.C.—The merchant service guild 6f Canada, embracing a majority of the leading shipmasters of
British Columbia, has addressed a communication to the minister of marine
with respect to the action of one Bon-
ser, late master of the Ss. Haselton,
operating upon the Skeena river, B.C.,
whom Captain Johnson, of the Ss.
Mount Royal, charges with having deliberately and with malice ran his vessel Into the Mount Royal for the purpose of Inflicting Injury. Captain
Johnson claims that he will be able to
establish by reputable witnesses as
follows: 1—That Bonser threatened
hostilities before the act; 2—mat he
boasted of his achievement after the
act; 3—That he purposely ran out of
his course to ram the Mount Royal;
4—That Bonser rammed the Ss. Ram-
ona on the Fraser ln the same wanton
manner; 5—That he suggested to a
member of the crew the tampering
with an aid to navigation so as to
bring to grief a rival boat. The guild
has asked that a commission be appointed to examine into the matter
and If these charges be sustained, or
any of them, that Bonser's certificate
be cancelled.

(Special)—Geo. S. McLaughlin, of this
place, glveB two splendid reasons for
his belief that Dodd's Kidney Pills
are the one nvnedy for Kidney ailments. Here are the two reasons in
his own words;
"1 was troubled with lame back for
25 years or more, sometimes so severe
that I could not turn myself in bed.
One box of Dodd's Kidney Pills cured
me, aud I havo had no return of the
trouble since.
"I have recommended Dodd's Kidney
Pills to a number of persons who had
Kidney Trouble. All who have used
them have been benefited or cured."
Dodd's Kidney Pills not only relieve
all Kidney Diseases, from Backache to
Bright's Disease, but they absolutely
cure them. But sometimes where one
or two boxes relieves it takes more to
make a complete cure.

letter from his boarding mistress asking him to return. In reply he stated
he should be glad to pass another sum-

college president, "your maid ls persona non grata. Secondly, I think the

They Never Knew Failure.—Careful
observation of the effects of Parmelee's Vegetable Pills has shown that
they act Immediately on the diseased
organs of the system and stimulate
them tp healthy action. There may be
cases In which the disease has been
long seated and does not easily yield
to medicine, but even in such cases
these Pills have been known to bring
relief when all other so-called remedies
have failed. These assertions can bo
substantiated by many who have used
the Pills, and medical men speak
highly of their qualities.
Editor and Proprietor of the Reporter,
Fort Saskatchewan, N.W.T.
In this series of sketches ot western
[editors reference has often been made
< the fact that among the most influential and prominent of the journalists
of Western   Canada   are those   who
pave served in every department of the
uechanlcal side of a newspaper's, production.      Nearly   all the   editors in
danltoba and the Northwest Terrltor-
are "graduates of the case."    For
Ihis thero are good and sufficient reasons.   Closely conclated to the country
Tiewspaper ls the job department.    In
fact, only In Winnipeg, Brandon and
|ierhnps one or two other towns in the
ntlfe northwest, can job printing offl-
pure and simple be found.    Else-
vhere all job printing is done by the
focal papers, and the work devides the
j week with that of printing and publishing the paper.    The day next following "press day" Is usually given up
to distributing,   the • next two—often
Ihree—are devoted to job work, and
two or three days, as the case may be,
fare devoted to setting the news for
fhe ensuing paper.   This ls the regu-
routlne of the week's work in the
kreat majority of Western   Canadian
veekly papers,    though,  In concerns
fuibllshod ln large enough places, the
department,   though part of the
pewspaper,  employs a staff for that
exclusive purpose, and ls operated all
JLhe week.
It will thus be seen that Western
Canadian journalism puts a premium
i-n the mechanical side of the business
getting out a newspaper.   There Is
not enough   writing to do to occupy
ue whole of any man's time.   Indeed,
Jmany local   papers do not set more
four or five galleys of matter a
Iveek,  Including country   correspond-
local news and editorial.   Very
leldom ls thia set in any smaller face
nan 8 point, and often the matter ls
ln 10   point.    The   securing   and
yrltlng of this copy could be done by
good reporter in a day, and for the
lalance of the week the recorder of
ocal news and views, should he oc-
py himself solely with the writing
the matter his paper prints from
veek to week, would be a gentleman
! leisure.   This accounts for the fact
fiat so small a proportion of Western
tlltors are   newspaper men,    ln the
i that the term ls understood ln
i.    It accounts also for the big
Preponderance of mechanically trained men ln the business as it is con-
Bucted in the west.   The printer with
Sufficient knowledge to write, lf not
vlth  grace,  with  intelligibility,  is  a
nuch greater asset to    tho   country
than the mere stringer together
lot phrases, or the man who can dls-
puss with lucidity   and learning the
nos l  abstruse    problems  of govern-
nent.    The  intelligent  printer-editor

Irhlle the mere writer ls of use for

The printer-editor can look after his
|iwn makeup, lay out his    advertise-
nents In the most attractive form, save
[naterlal, save time, reduce expense,
and in dozens of ways increase the
Ifflclency and enhance the appearance
bf his paper, and in addition give the
lob department all the advantages of
bersonal and    practical    supervision.
iHence lt ls no wonder that many a
careful nnd ambitious journeyman sots
before his mind, as the goal of hia del-Ire, the aim of one day   being   the
editor and proprietor of a paper of his
pwn; nor ls lt any wonder that ln the
panadian West, the land of opportun-
for printers as well as farmers,
h alms  are    frequently    realized.

Of such a class Mr. W. J. Hunter,
the editor and proprietor of the Saskatchewan Reporter, ls a typical instance. He has been ln the west for
nearly twenty years, having come to
Manitoba as a boj* ln 1878. His parents settled at Emerson, and there,
when school days were over, and the
boy had to select his life work, he decided to learn the printing business.
He served as devil on tho Emerson
International, subsequently moving to
Portage la Prairie, sticking type on
the newspapers of that place. In 1893
he went west to Edmonton, and for
ten years remained on the staff of the
Bulletin, the paper owned by Hon.
Frank Oliver. In the course of the
rapid growth of the Bulletin ln recent
years, Mr. Hunter acquired a very
valuable journalistic experience, which
promises to stand him in good stead
now that he ls in business for himself.
Last year he saw an opportunity of
establishing a new paper. The country to the east of Edmonton was rapidly filling up, and the influx of Immigration Was building up the old trapper fort, Fort Saskatchewan, until lt
had prospects of being a good commercial and agricultural centre. So Mr.
Hunter bought a plant and set to work
to publish the Fort Saskatchewan Reporter. Its success has more than justified his enterprise. Already It has
become a newspaper of more than ordinary influence. Its circulation is
each week Increasing, Its advertising
patronage Is becoming correspondingly important, and Its comments on
local and general events are each
week looked forward to with interest
by Its ever widening circle of readers.
Mr. Hunter's success ls well deserved. It ls but the replica of many another such story of energy and faith
that the people of the West feel ln
their country. As the days go by, and
the West becomes more populous and
more productive, it is but reasonable
to believe that the Reporter will occupy a more Important place In the
minds of the people among whom it
circulates, and that Its editor will hold
a more Important place than he at
present occupies In the estimation of
the residents of Northern Alberta.

are the Best Months to Make Money Raising Chickens
Chicks hatched thon grow more rapidly snd require less csre thin
at sny time of year, and the knack of running the business successfully
is acquired under the most favorable circumstances.
One good May or Juna hatching will bring out a brood of chicks
thst sell about October Im, for enough to pay for an Incubator and
another batch can then be started that will get the chicks ""t in time
for tho Christmas market. The next batch will bo ready for the March
and April market, "broilers'' commanding the very highest market prices.
A good Incubator is the foundation of real success in poultry raising, bringing the whole matter from guesswork to certainty.    We furnish you with a
Chatham Incubator
on owiy terms.    No caah to pay until November, 1005.    By that time it should have paid for itself.
Nothing else raised on a farm pays like this, and the beauty of it all is that the women folks or children can
easily attend to the very email amount of work there is to oe done. Half an hour or so a day is aU the time
Getting the right Incubator is pretty nearly tho whole tiling. The Chatham ia the
safest and surest Incubator made. It does tho trick ; 100 pur cent, hatches erery time
if the eggs are fertile. Kather than go into details of construction here, we will print a

A Complete
te Poultry
le-ten from erery Stato in the United States, and erery Province in the Dominion,
we put out is the beat kind of advertising we do, for it sells many others for us by ils never-
fading reiulta.
The Chatham is built on honor, and its construction and workmanship are as perfect as
an experience of fifty years and ample capital can make thom.
The Chatham was tho first Incubator mado that was good enough to admit of its makers
taking chances that it would mako its cost for the poultryman before it was paid for.
Don't imagine for a moment that it is any longer poBaihlo to make big poultry profits by
setting hens.    As hatchers hens are as out of date at Btone hatchets.
If these erratic, uncertain birds are kept busy egg-laying inatoad of wasting their time
sotting, the poultryman will pocket a good muny eitra dollars in profit.
If you want to get full particulars on the subject and learn all the details of successful
Incubator hatching and profitable poultry railing send to-day for our Buperbly printed book,

How often the want of knowing how

as she might, when the material to
attain this result lies closo at her side
unused. Take, for example, a length of
pretty ribbon, too short for a sash.
Many ..iris would thinkliecuuseit failed
to be n sash, there were no possibilities
in it. But take such a ribbon wheu you
are prettily dressed in a white uinslin
gown, bodice half low or open iu some
way in thu ucck, aud slip it across your
back, fasten it aud bring it over your
shoulders. Then draw it under the
arms frontwards Afterwards draw the
ribbon to the,left sido nnd then putting
both ends 10 nu even measure, fasten
both ribbons on that side. After easing
the ribbon across tho bust to ynur com
fort' fasten the right side ribbon to the
bodice hiiliug llie pin under the drapery

Skirts appear over several white transparent drop-skirts to increase that effect.
Apricot aud still more delicate colors in

tbey never give the snme air of elegance

bluck figured laces remain as steadfastly iu favor as ever for gown-making,

this style is absolutely necessary for a
