The complete change—the newress of
everything--wn* of infinite benefit to
Edith. The supreme, healthy plea-turc
she derived from the eights and minds
about her gave her strength and lt-
newed hope. Yet the lesson she had
received had taught her the deepe t
•elf-distrust. She shrank from making
nny acquaintance, and was quite hnppy
with her good friend Mrs. Mil.*, nnd
Mrs. Maitland, between whom ami herself a degree of intimacy sprung tp
Mrs. Mnilland required much (air-
cure beyond whnt her maid could give.
She loved reading, but her eyes si on
grew weary. Edith was heartily gbul
to' read to the gentle, cultivated woman
by the hour, and enjoyed the discus
slims which naturally arose on Ibe sub
jects of their lecture. On sunny dnyt-
the Invalid crept to and fro on ihc path
between the garden paling and the
beach, supported by Edith's arm, and
thus soothed nnd cheered grew wonderfully  better.
Meantime Edith was not without conjectures as to the possible relationship
which might exist between h.>r nc\i
friend and the offending Maitland. Theso
hud been nnswered nt an early atttge of
their acquaintance by some reference oi
the part of Mrs. Maitlnnd to bee bumf

enuld not bring herself to inemliu that
she had ever known her sou; she hud
no wish to renew her acquaintance
with him or to speak of him. Unt now
and then there were tones In hi*
mother's voice, a peculiar grave, tilnu:. i
sad, smile, that brought Jack Mnitland
back to her memory with a stniiicv
pang umasing to herself.

face with her hands, exclaiming: "God

He with a sudden gesture threw one
arm around her, and pressed her closely
to him, almost painfully close. Tbe
darkness slightly cleared, and Edith

nho orciied the door softly, so -oftfly
that for a moment they were not aware
a third iiersun wns added to their number; then the sudden sense of a disturbing pi("sencr. made Edith Imk t-p—to
meet Jack Mnitlnnd's eyes.
Wilh n bow and a smile to her, he
went, quickly across to Mrs. Maitland,
and, exclaiming, "Well, ie.ir mother,
Itow goes it?" kissed her tenderly.
Edith put down her book gently, nad
had n'most reached the door, when Mrs.
Maitiand cried:
"Do not run away, my dear. Let me
at least latroducc my son to you."
She wus obliged to return, and stood
with downcast eyes nnd crimson checks,
unspeakably annoyed.
"I have already the pleasnre of knowing Miss Vivinu," said Mnitland, widi
a joyous ring in his tone ns he advanced to shake hands with her and then
stopped; her attitude, her whole expression, showed she was not going to give
liim her hand, or to respond to his
greeting, beyond what civility required.
"Howl—you know Miss Vivian?" asked his mother, greatly surprised. "Why
did you not tell me so before?"
"Because nutil yonr last letter you
never mentioned the name of the yonng
lady who has made your 6tny here so
pleasant and profit.ible. I have to thank
you heartily. Miss Vivian; but I fear
yon have forgotten me?"
"No," returned Edith, recovering herself, and remembering that it would not
do to let her disappointment In him appear. "I was a little startled when you
came In so unexpectedly."
"Then you had no idea ha wo* my
son?" said Mrs. Maitland.
"I thought it probable when yon
spoke of Craigrothie, but—" She paused-
"No doubt you had many more interesting topics to discuss," said Jack
Maitland, laughing.
He wished to change ths subject Ha
thought that Edith's silence respecting
himself arose from reluctance to revet*
to the mortifying circumstances connected with their acquaintanceship.
"(jrood-evenlng," returned Edith, with
a pretty, alight, respectful courtesy to
Mrs. Maitland. "I have put a murk in
the book; you can find the place easily.
Good-evening," and with a little hesibi-
Hon she gave her hand <to  Maitland.
"If you will go," he said, opening tft*
door for her. "I can see my mother Is
a different creature, and I am sure much
of the Improvement Is due to you."
Edith smiled, shook her head, and
escaped down-stairs; but not to the
drawing-room. She wanted to be alone.
In her own apartment the fire burned
clear nnd bright, and lighted the room
sufficiently. Edith sat down on ths
hearthrug and thought, in a hurried, confused way. "He has come—he is here,"
was the phrase that repeated itself over
snd over again In her ears; the nmn
who hnd thought so lightly of her as
to say he hnd better avoid her evident
liking for him, Mrs. Winington was
not honest—not altogether honest In her
conduct, but she could not invent such
a story- Woe it possible thnt unaffected, grave, composed man could be
guilty of such a piece of boyish coxcombry? Ouilty or not, she was slmost dismayed to feel so very, very glad to s •
him. She wa* angry with hetieif; it
wns want of proper pride.
Then the past came back to her, oh,
how vividly! All those months sbco
their memorable meeting lu the picture,
gsllery. At her first plunge In the |
brilliant life to which Mr*. Wlniington
hsd Introduced her, the only one whtec
presence gave her a sense of aafety, of
solid ground, was Maitlnnd. She had
unconsciously given him her full confidence; and with innocent trust had generally sought for his opinion nn all that
waa said or done, consulting his thought-,
ful but expressive eyes with the candor
of a child. She could never do t'.il.i
again; Mrs. Winington had ext hguitsh-
cd all chance' of quiet, unembarrassel
Intercourse. But since they last met
Edith had learned much; she hnd enteti
Of the fruit of the tree of knowl.dgo
and profited by tbe repast. She must
not allow this consciousness of Mnitlnnd's puerile vanity to disturb o'tti'ior
her mind or her manners, she must be
strong to live her own life, to mark out
her own road. Mr. Maitlanil could be
nothing to ber; she had much to see and
to do apart from him. Indeed, she
would resist these unprofitable musing* I
now. j
She rose as she came to this    con-;
elusion, and looked round for her work-
basket.   She Would take It ta the draw
ing room, and if Miss Splcer, [he lo.to-
motive elderly young lndy, wus not
playing whist, she would nsk her ml:
vice about piannmg a tour on the Continent- Miss Spieer wns a past mistress
of the nrt of doing things In the best
way nt the cheapest rate. It was contemptible to sit and dream about follies!
The succeeding days, however, showed
Edith that in the mntter of nvci'd'ng
Mnitland, hers wns not the only will
at work. He had evidently made up
his mind to see as much as possible of
her, and his mother seconded him iu
her gentle, kindly wny. She quite well
remembered Maitland once she saw h'm
ngnin, though when out of sight he
slipped her memory.
To Edith, in spite of her'resolution to
be coldly prudent and steadily distrustful, these days were unaccountably delightful. The hearty gratitude of Mnitland for her kind attentions to his
mother touched her heart. His sincerity
could not be doubted; a grent lunging to
(rive him her whole confidence spangled within ber against a steru determination to show no preference in her
The weather was tolerably fine ,and
Maitland often took his mother out driving. Edith was always asked to accompany them, and sometimes accepted;
but Jack Maitland could not resist the
impression that Bhe quietly avoided him.
Was it the associations connected w'th
him were painful? Could she class him
with Beaton? Did she think him a
poltroon like his friend? or—bad Mrs
Winington made mischief? This was
possible. As Jack Mnitlnnd pondered
these things on his wny bnck from a
ramble beyond the Enstney Barracks, he
caught sight of a certain brown hat nnd
pheasant's breast, which he knew well,
and soon overtook.
"Has Mrs. Miles a lazy fit that you
are walking alone, Miss Vivian?" he
She looked up quickly, the color rising to her cheek for a moment. How
well those delicate flitting blushes became herl
"She Is busy writing to her son,"
replied Edith. "My cousin, Mr. Vivinn,
has got him a good situation at tthe
Cape, and denr Mrs. Miles is so glad."
"I suppose so," throwing away his
cigar. "I did not know she had a son.
You expect your cousin down here, do
you not?"
"We always expect him; he is a little
A pause. Mnitland was puzzled how to
bring the conversation round to herself
nnd the change ho perceived iu her manner.
"My mother Is not quite so well today. I persuaded her to stay in-iloorj.
Will you look in on her when you go
in? You have done her so much good;
you suit her exactly. In short, if you
do not think it audacious of me to mention such n possibility ns your growing
eld, 1 should say yo'U will, in the oour-e
of inexorable time, be just such an old
lady as my mother now is."
"That is a high compliment," said
Edith,  with  a  pleased  smile.
"Still it is difficult to fancy you nnj--
thing but young—ethereally young. Now
do not turn toward the house. It Is so
fiesh and invigorating, though a little
wild; the nir will do yu good, and I
w ant you to explain EOtnetliirjg that
puzzles me."
"What can It be?" asked Edith. "I
urn uot likely to know more thnn you."
Not wishing to appear ungracious tbe
ncceded to his request, and continued to
follow the raised path that separated the
road from the beach.
"You must not think me presumptuous; in short, will you grant me plenary
absolution for anything I am going to
"Do not say anything disagreeable!"
st,id   Edith,   looking   up   entretttingly.
"Do you think I would pain you in nny
wny?" asked Mnitlund, meeting ber
eyes, the expression in his own thriirng
ber with n strange, wild delight, that
hnd in it something of pain. "Well, I
will trust to your understanding," he resumed, finding 6he did not look np to
answer. "When I first met yon, Miss
A'ivian. we soon became friends. I
could say anything to you, and feel sin*
of being understood; nnd I wns under
the Impression thnt you felt how thoroughly I nppreciatcd bite frankness, the
delightful sincerity of your nature, in
short, thnt you were inclined to tmst

cannot say where tho change is, but you
have cloaed your petals and hidden your

but I feel too much to submit without
an effort. Tell me, has any one spokun

me us if I were more a stranger than
the first dny I met you?"
Edith was greatly puzzled how to nil'
swer. She could not repeat Mrs, Winington's speech respecting him; she
could not criievwlisc account for the
cbnnge In herself.
"No oue hns spoken ngulnst you, Mr.
Maitlnnd," she said, keeping her eyes
fixed on the ground. "I did not think
I- was bo changed."
"Then you nro changed?"
"I am very much chnnged—in every
wny. I feel so much older, so different,
It seems yenrs nnd years since I first
met you. I do not Intend to be—to be
"I wnnt a grent deal more thnn
civility," said Mnitlnnd, trying to ste'il
a look Into her eye*; "I wnnt ns much
as I give, as I hnve given."
"It Is growing very stormy," exclaim-
cd Edith, abruptly, snd turning, she begun to walk fust,
Mnitlnnd felt checked, hut wns not n
mnn to be easily daunted. li
"When I rushed off to see my mother,"
he resumed, "full of the warmest gratitude to you for nil your tender cue of
her, nnd looking forwnrd to the pleanu e
cf tenewlng our former friend-hip jit-jt
at the same stage nt which we had ben
separated by no fault of mine, I did not
expect such a disappointment."
"I have rend somewhere," said Editli,
with a transparent attempt nt evasion,
that nothing once broken off enn ever
be  renewed ngniu  exactly ns  it  was"
"I nm sorry to hear you say si,"
said Maitland, gravely, iiuderKtai.d ,ng
that she declined any explnnatlon, .nd
intended to keep up the sumo indcnti-
r.blc - distance between them. "1 lic.n,ul
curneslly that you would not think mi
Ices worthy your frnnk friendliness now
Ihnu yoj did three or four mrnllis
ogo.    I enn only accept your decision."
"You nre very good. I do l.ot wish
to be rude or unkind," fnltcred Edith,
summoning her wounded self-love to
sustain her under tbe load of desjxiT
which seemed settling down on her
heart ns she noticed the effect, of hot
words. Oh! ought^sbe to have lelieveJ
Mr*. Wiuington? Mas it possible (lint b«
loved her—ber insignificant little self,
nnd she wns repulsing him? Yet how
could she c.\'|i!aiii?
"Rude or unkind," repeated Mailltuil;
"thnt yon could never be. But I need
not pain you b.v compelling you to Hpeak
more plainly, So good-bye for (he present.   Yu'i will sec my molltcr this even
ing, if you can?"
They hud reached the gate. He opened if, and raised his bat ns she passed
through. Then settling It hard down,
he turned aud walked rapidly away In
the teeth of the rising wind.
"Mr. Vivian arrived nbout half en
hour ngo, miss," said a servant whom
she met in the hull.
Thankful for the timety notice, Edith f
slipped awuy to her own room to take •
off her hat, to think over the hopeless
tangle in which she seemed involved.
How could she explain things?—.ani
how could she completely disbelieve Mrs-
Winington or believe Maitland? Did
not the very spirit of truth seem bo-
speak through the lips of Leslie Ben-,
ton? yet at the first touch of disaster
bow quickly he deserted her. "Still
Afa-Uand is faithful aud true," said hor
heart, and she could not turn a" deaf
ear to the assertion.
As soon ns she recovered herself she
went Into the little drawing-room to
erect Vivian. He hod quite slipped from
her thoughts since Maitlond's arrival,
and now she felt he waa an additional
mesh in the net thnt wns closing around
Mrs. Miles was sitting by the fire,
knitting in hand, nnd a somewhat troubled expression on her'countenance. Dnvld
Vivian was striding to und fro, his brow
knit, bis hands, plunged in the side
pockets of his coat.
"How do you do, David?" said Ed'th,
cheerfully.   "I hope you arc better?"
"No, 1 am not!" roughly, stopjiing
short in front of her, "and you are not
well cither. You have been crying your
eyes out—don't deny it! I sec you have.
What's the matter, little cottsiu?—can
I not help you?" These Inst woads in
a wonderfully softened tone that touched Edith.
"There Is nothing the mntter, Duvld,"
she returned stretching out both her
hands. "I hnve beeu walking against
the wind, nnd it has made iny eyes red
nnd sore."
"Lies! lies!" muttered Vivian to himself, yet taking her bands in his own
and letting Jier lead him to u seat-
"Where does this fellow Muitl.iind
ccme from? how do you know him? I
saw you walk past with him, and I
watched and thought you'd never coma

did you come to know liim'.'"
"He ia a friend of Mrs. Wbuntftoji
nnd Mr. Bentou," snid Edith, dreadfully alarmed and much surprised.
"Hn! traitors every one. Ho ist a
traitor too. You must speak no morj
to him, Edith; I  forbid you!"
"Cousin Dnvld, 1 cannot be rude to
tin unoffending acquaintance, because
you bid uie!" returned Edith firmly. "I
do not particularly wish to walk or
talk with Mr. Mnitland, but I will not
be forbidden by you to spenk tn any
"I suppose not! I nm of uo ncconnt in
yonr eyes. I hnd belter go; I nm mot

"Oh, my gracious, Mr. Vivian," cried
Mrs. Miles*
"Itenlly, David, you are' too s-illy,"
said Edith, with a pleasant luut,*. "You
must be liunjrry und out of temper to
mnke a quarrei out of uotliing. Don't
you see how foolish it all is? Suppose I
were to be angry with you if you walked out with—say, Mrs. Pnrker, or even
her daughter "
Vivinn interrupted her with a boister.
oils lnugh.
"Just so, thnt would be n queer turn.
Never mind, Edith; I wouldn't wnlk
with a living soul if It would vex you.''
"Well, do not vex nie by being cress,"
she returned.
"All right, all right. I suppose I ha-e
j been making rather en nss of myself.
I .tin a little out of surts. Dou't let

he were foTgiving some injury. "Come,
sit down, and tell me what you have

begun to talk in their usual strain.
It had been a most trying day to
Edith. She looked forward wilh ittfiurite
dread to dint <-, she feared thnt Vivian
might break out with some insuliitj
speech to Maitiand. Her cousin's eccentricities seemed increasing; she could
not anticipate what he would do next.

"Why docs an oyster sleep anil live
on Its left side?" asked a man wbo Is
interested In oyBtcr culture. "Well, 1
suppose we will have to put tbe question to Nature, and Nature baa lier own
way of answering questions. I have
been around In the oyster waters of
the Chesapeake bay and Choptank river for many years and nm In a position
to say that this Is tbe natural way
of the oyster. 1 may remark parenthetically that this Is one or the difficulties we hnve to contend with, for In re-
beddlng oysters and bunching them an
oyster Is occasionally thrown upon Its
tight side and weighted so that it cnu-
» not turn over. It simply dwindles
nway and dies by degrees. Put upon
its right side the oyster cannot live.
Of course there Is an explanation to
this peculiarity. The right band part
of the oyster shell la tbe top and mov-
able pnrt If the oyster Is put tu Its
natural position—that Is, on Its left
11 side—It requires but a small amount of
physical energy to open nnd raise tbe
right hand section of tbe shell when
the oyster wants to feed. Reverse tho
position nnd put the oyster on tbe right
Hide and we find nn extremely difficult
problem, from the oyster's standpoint
In order to open the shell for feeding
purposes lt Is necessary for the oyster
to raise not only tbe weight of tbe -left
section of the shell, but Its own weight
as well. If we reverse tbe natural position of the oyster, put It on Its right
lianil Side and wedge It so It can't turn
over, we simply smother and starve It
lo death. Of course, I am just theorizing nbout this thing. There may be
some other explanation of the left banded life of the oyster, but from my experience I am Inclined to think tbe explanation, given Is a reasonable one."—

Giiia.ii Winter FiJTi.e..
There are quite a number of evergreens which are more beautiful in
winter than in summer because of tho
pretty color of their foliage at that
season, and not tho least among
them is the Rollinson's (i olden Ar-
borvitae, Thuya (Biotn) elegantis-
slma. In tho summer timo it has
golden colored tips, especially when
making new growth. As coon as
cold weather comes iho whole ol tho
exposed foliage becomes of a flamo
color and is especially brilliant when
exposed to the sun. )n fact, when
overshadowed by tress or huildings
it colors hardly at all. Its best position is ono entirely oprn. The habit
of growth of this arho'vitae is lo-
tci'medlate between the upright growing common Chinese a.iid tho bushy,
slow growing Uoldcii Arborvitne.
Bet out of a height of about two
feet it would be soino years before it
would bo four.
Good companions ill tho way of
pleasing winter colors nre the Ketin-
ispora pisifera nuren, tho foliage of
which becomes of a golden yellow,
and tho Douglas Golden JunipctC
Tho color of tho latter is of a rich,
golden bronze, something unique
among evergreens. This Juniper is of
n rather flat, spreading growth, fitting it for positions which the nior*
upright evergreens could not fill.

Any farmer who depends altogether
on tile seasons und he id work for
success in his business* may make
some sort of a living and even increase his small capital by natural
increment, but ho will never merit
the api>e.llaUon of successful farmer.
Industry is a good trait oi character, but often a good degree of that
which looks like lu/iness leads to better results. For im-lnnce, a man
may bo so la.y that ho habitually
works hard on labor saving contrivances, by which he call accomplish
greater results with less labor, do
more and better work with less physical exertion. He may bo so lazy
that he will do no work in a slipshod manner, for in that case ho
would have to do the work over
again. No farmer can be successful
unless he does a lnigo amount of
mental labor, and mental labor saves
physical labor and makes what physical labor is necessary far moro
effective. Tho very best work at tho
very best time cannot bo dons by
unaided physical effort. To do such
work requires deep and persistent
study—Farm and Ranch.

Illood poisoning is now recognized
as poisoning by a living organism,
while ordinary poisoning is by some
chemical substnuco devoid of lifo.
Blood poisoning took Its name bo-
I'oie its nature was properly under-
f.tood, nnd it was thought lo bo a
iori'i of ordinary poisoning, but that
ti'.' l:)ood rather than the "vital
principles" was chiefly attacked. ■
As the stomach can, us a rulo, de-
vtr.y tho life of most organisms,
villi,, it can only to a limited extent
alter tho constitution of chemical
poisons, poisoning by living organ?
isn.. or blood poisoning, is far mors
common through wounds than Uy
things eaten, and thus tho idea of
its being a poisoning oi tho blood
was .strengthened. As a "blood poison'" li alive, it can and often does
go on increasing after lis first ingestion, and tho most obvlcajs dlffcr-
enco between tho two is that blood
poisoning generally begins with
slight symptoms and increases indefinitely, while ordinary poisoning
i'eiii'1'.es its height almost at once.
How n Crnir llolpotl a Golf Player.

when suddenly a largo crow swooped

That the mouse does not suffer so much
ss might b* expected is proved by certain fact* told me by a friend a short

mouse and "playing" with it for some
time left lt to go and eat some meat In
a plate on tha floor. To my friend's
surprise, tbe mouse followed In spite
of a broken leg aud fed for nwlillo out
of the some dish, ths cat occasionally
pushing the mouse aside when It came
too closo. When both bad finished, the
cat nte up his companion, wbo evidently feared death as littlo ns the condemned murderers who, we are often
told, "nte R hearty breakfast on the

THE recent legislation by which the
control nnd responsibility for the
Vftioa Ot Vancouver has passed to
Oommiesioners has been the subject of
cotwidentble public comment and criti-
ciam ac wm to be expeotod.
Tim attitude however of Some members of tho City Conncil and of the
Police Committee Is nnder all tho cir-
enmslauccs inexplicable.
-Iks proposed change in the method
' of control  was  made  with tbe entire
• knowledge and coueurrance of those
rwpoosi'.le for the City's nllairsand the
pablio in tbe main are well satisfied
that the principle of Control by Commissioners is the better system.
There are a few other pnblic affairs
Which might with equal benefit to the
, Oily pass to*a similiar body.
' Tmm Commissioners then having been
Appointed in dne course, and the
fet-onuel^tlicreof being as it is, which
so far as repute and ability is concerned
ejroold ibe difficult to improve, why do
. -the City-fathers or any of them raise
headless questions and obstacles which
4_m be of no earthly use but only
impede and interfere seriously with the
proper course of one part of tho civic
administration whicli is of serious
moment, and which  if  they had   tlie
, {Sty's interests at haart thoy would do
. All they possibly could to assist.
If any pnblic good conld eome of the
present attitude exhibited in certain
, quarters, er if any serious objection
Malt, be made either against the Uom-
talssionors personally or the legislation
which brought them into being, then il
. Were better to have a full public discus-
..tin and*~ttle everything once for all,
but, such actions aud potty complaints
W havo so fnr disclosed themselves
discloses little else than a regrettable
attitude which haa for its foundation
Ibe personal vicwB or  feelings of the
, twlhors,   and  in   which   nny   public
t spirit is absent.
•   There is no fear however that in a
; -cry little while tho tnrmoil will
anbside,   and  thu  Commissioners will
, them be free to take whatever course
Jjttoy doom expedient to maintain all

"She stood in the tender twilight
While the soft wind whispered by,
Homeless, friendless and weary,
Under the evening sky.
The scent of violets was wafted
From the grassy turf at her feet,
And the promise of coming Summer
Made all things wondrous sweet.
But alone she stood In the twilight,
With the dew on her roughened hair,
And her soft eyes dimmed by unahed
With never a friend to care.
And never a roof to shelter her
Or a kindly word Is said,
As from door to door she moves along:,
Begging her dally bread.
Oh,  think of   her    in    your   cheerful
When the twilight shadows come,
And you gather round your bounteous
In the safe and happy home.
Qtve her a kind and sentle word—
You can surely spaie her that;
She may come to your door at any timo.

Women who understand anything
about dressing will agree that the most
difficult of all the arts of dress is to
have a. severely plain gown that will also immediately attract the attention
and demand admiration—a dress that
will be perfect In fit, style and individuality, and yet be, In every particular, harmonious and unobtrusive In
make and color.
Some people claim that it is impos
slble to create a severely plain dress that
will at once attract the eye and chal
lenge admiration, but the well gowned
woman,   the true artist  in  costuming,
knows that nothing Is impossible.
The secret of a perfectly plain yet
strikingly charming gown is harmonious slmplicUj-. This means color,
make, fit, trimming, the finishing accessories of the sleeve, collar aid belt; we
may also add that one should wear
Shoes, gloves and hats that thoroughly
harmonise with the frecH wcrr..
Women generally mean ta.ilor-mn.de
gowns when they speak of plain gowns.
Its lines are stiff, ungraceful and unbecoming.
Tlie severely plain gown 13 the sort
that one Fees In frocks for m»rnlng
wear and in those being prepared for
country wear later on. It is considered
distinctly bad form for a woman to he
over-dressed in the country, and the
approaching season will be marked by
the prevalence of simple dressing in
the country.
lloet of us can look back to the time
nhen wstnen sat on hotel and cottage
piazzas In country resorts, all befrilled
and covered with fuibelows, looking
like nothing so much as a row of dolls
dressed for n Christmas tree. We look
back upon that time and contrast it
with the present sensible fashion
hygienic dressing in the country.
Ksts. for country wear will match
ft ockB In th .'Ir simplicity, so that we
will preserve the harmonies In dress.
A simple gown that will Illustrate an
up-to-date style, Is soft In Its folds and
stylish In its cut. The shirt Is laid In
medium wide plouts, stitched from the
belt down for a short distance and then
ollowe dto fall loose. The Hitching is
near the edge of the pleata and glvcj
the double effect of pleating and solf-
An unusual nnd fascinating little note
Is lntioduted in the bodice In the round
Dutch neck piece that extends down-
waid nnd forms one piece with the
sleeve. One marvels Junt how the band
can fit the curve of the neck, the
shoulders and Btlll form a well-set
sleeve. Thl* pleeo ia stitched down each
side the upper arm for a short distance,
giving a sort of panel effect and a long
slope to the shoulder—a olope that only
stops short at the cuff. Tlie shaped
yoke piece form* a point on each aide
of the front of tho blouse, and below
these tile fulnerg of the blouse la laid
In four stitched pleats down each Bide
tlio front. The bach of the biouee has
a box-pleat In the centre and two stitched pleats tlowneaeh side. A dainty tie
round the neck is knotted In saWor fashion and finished with lace .it the cnd3.
The belt is very wide ond trimmed with
Stitching, It is simply finished with a
squ.ue buckle.
At the bottom of the sleeve Its fulness Is gathered to a band from which
fall shifped pieces of cloth above a frill
of lingerie or lace.
Another model of a perfectly plain
gown. The skirt Is laid in pleats that
nre stitched nearly to the bottom of the
Bklrt In front and only half-way down
In the back, the side pleats being grad-
u-'.td from front to back. In th* length
stitching. A wide, graduated box ;.i!eat
forms the centre of the front of the
blouse and a wide belt of crushed leather, with a square leather buckle of the
ground color of the gown, la worn
about the waist.
Tho sleeve has stitched pleats to within an inch or two of tho elbow, and
then the fulness, falls loose and is gathered into a fitted wristband with a deep
embroidered lingerie cuff. A turn-over
collar of the same material is worn
over ' a stock ' .and wide silk tie with
loose ends. This ribbon forms a fetching little bow under the chin.
These gowns are distinctly simple
and severely plain and yet none of them
approaches the style of cut In the tailor-made gown.
Among the models of simple gowns Is
one of crepe-de chine. The skirt has
stitched tucks all the way round the
top to make It Bet gracefully over the
hips. These tucks fall loose down the
rest of the- sltirt and a hem finishes the
ing set round diamond-shaped pieces of
crepe. Tho full sleeve Is laid in box
pleats at the top and at the bottom Is
gathered into a narrow wristband trimmed with buttons. The bodice is made
with deep pleats extending from the
yoke to the wide girdle of drawn folds
of liberty satin. A stock and little lace
yoke have rows of narrow lace beading upon them and the little yoke comes
down into a slight point In front.
Across the top of the Dutch neck of
the bodice front is a Bmall frog of white
silk cordb' held by buttons of twisted
silk cords.
The bodice has a deep fitted yoke,
coming well down over the top of the
arm and finished with silk herrlngbon

wide flare.
The sleeve proper is so full as to re-
eemble a pillow case. The arm is enveloped In It and lt lies in great folds
all round the elbow, falling forward
over the cuff. The top of this sleeve 1b
very tight and actually hugs the arm,
being of the variety known as skintight.
Then there lo another sleeve, and this
is the sleeve which terminates a little
below the elbow In a wide ruffle. This
Is lined with a ruffle of chiffon and this
in turn with a ruffle of lace, then more
chiffon, and so on until the sleeve Is
filled in. It falls round the hand In
one great cascade.
Sleeves are made by puffing the material below the elbow. Then comes a
great series of ruffles that fall right
down to the very wrist. These are
made of many kinds of lace, of tulle,
of chiffon and of other materials, until
the arms are exquisitely covered. Nothing prettier than this sleeve could possibly be imagined.
There are skirts that are too handsome to be Ignored In the chronicles cf
fashion, where skirts arc to be mentioned. A lovely Bklrt is one that trails
well upon the ground and Is trimmed
with a deep, tlounce-like arrangement.
The best skirts are not flounced, but
are cut so that the lower pait flares
like a flounce.
Again, the skirt is box-plaited half
wya down with the box plaits Inverted
and with the fulness all lying in these
plaits. Skirts of this kind should be
made very long to give that exquisite feminine height that is ao much
desired by both men and women.
A great deal Is being done to make
woman, fair woman, seem tall. Not
only are skirts very long Indeed, but
they are trimmed in such a way as to
seem still longer. The new skirts are
of four lengths, and it seems almost
essential that a woman should have at
least one skirt made In every one of the
four diflerent lengths.
The longest skirt is the prettiest, because the most graceful and the most
feminine. This skirt is fitted to the hips
and is "tried on" the wearer in a pecu
liar fashion. She Is stood on a thick
book, or upon a low footstool, and the
skirt Is turned up just even with the
ground In front and at the sides. But
at the sides it begins to grow longer,
and in the back it is cut to a very long
sweep, the longer the better. This Is
the Ideal dinner and reception length.
The next length Is fitted while a woman stands upon a thin book. The
skirt 13 turned up even with the ground
and is gradually lengthened into a train
until It sweeps off at the back Into a
very respectable length. This Is worn
tor calling and for very nice street
wear. It Is the skirt that Mrs. Paget
nnd other London women select for do
ing the ba2ani3 and shows of tjic sea
Then come two other skirts, the chopping skirt, which just touches, or rather
ju:-t escapes, the ground; and the skirt
that is cut from one to two Inches from
the ground, namely, the Instep skirt.
These four lengths make up Ihe sklrtB
of the season.
Character Told By The Laugh
A wise specialist on the throat and
voice has discovered that every man
unconsciously betrays his character
when he laughs.
So does every woman. So to study
your sweetheart's silvery cachlnatioir
Is to probe the recesses of hsr mind.
Thus many unhappy marriages can be
Tiiin learned specialist announces In
a French review thnt each person
laughs in one of the vowel sounds.
The man or woman who laughs in
"A," who emits a hearty "Ha-hi,' ia
fran'.c, loyal, and loves noise and movement.
Those who laugh In "E" (French I),
are phlegmatic, some of them even melancholic. Their forced ")Ie-hc!" comes
from no sense of forgiveness nor Is It
impelled by amusement.
The timid, Irresolute, the naive and
the pllnblo laugh In "i" (English E).
Eo do children, t:..yj this student of
laughs. Children and foolish young
women  glgglo In "E."
The laugh In "O" Indicates on the one
side generosity and good companionship; on the other, boldness or brutality. Never a villain in a melodrama
but who mocked his victim with a "Ho-
hoi" ■'
Tho»e who laugh in "U" aro mlsun-
