For Men.
Almost every man has read the "fairy tales" of the
clothiers, in the newspapers. Almost every man
has been disappointed and disgusted on looking at
the clothes they pretended to describe.
We invite these men to call at Fit-Reform to be
most agreeably surprised.
It's easy to draw a picture of Men's Clothes as they
should be, but it's not so easy to make the clothes
look like the picture.
We publish no misleading illustrations, but we do
know how to provide our patrons with the right
kind of clothes.
If you have had clothes troubles, Sir, we  invite you
to come to this store for relief.
We'll surprise you with the excellence of our garments, and please you with our reasonable  prices.

1.11.0 a Hash Bonnylin hart wheeled
around, nrnl lied precipitately from
the room.
Lc Hoy Pierpont looked after her in
puzzled wonder.
"What a beautiful, willful li11Io
fury my Bonnylin is developing
Into," ho told himself, with a sinil'.
"If she has really set her heart
upon going away, of course no it is.
I shall not be able to arrange my
business into shape" much before the
2lst, the day after to-morrow. Lot
mc see. That will Ix. the day following Mrs. Lincoln S brill. 1 am sure
llonnylin would not wish to miss
"I wonder what hns conn' over
Bonnylin of late?" ho mused. "I am
bogtnnlng to believe the old adiga,
'That a man can never understand a
woman.' Sho ought to ho So happy
here. Mother is so fond of her, nnd
India is liko a sister to her. Now,
why in Heaven's name should she
tako it into her capricious little head
to go away?"
At lirst. llonnylin had made up her
mlid to d clino Ibe invitnt on to tKo
■'gieai. forthcoming ball: but on second thought she <i elded she would
go, because India Margrave would
be there.
At length the night of tho fatal
ball  rolled  around.
It was an uwkward sight to seo
the two rivals gazo nt each other
when Ihey met in the drawing-room,
wniting for tho coach, nml for I—
Hoy rierpont who was to o..cort
India Margrave saw a slender figure rolled in billowy white satin and
filmy lace; a lovely flowerllko face,
flushed wilh excitement, framed in a
sheen of golden hair, and eyes brighter than stars, with something hardly natural in their brilliant glow.
India swept into tho room with a
smile of triumph on her fatally bewitching faro—a defiant, insolent
smile thnt said plainer thm words:
"Vou see I havo outshone you as
usual. Seo tho admiration in Le
Hoy's eyes."
India, too, was dressed in pearl-
white satin, draped with silver gauze,
with a dash of crimson rose: In the
bodice nt her dress, and n bio: d-rod
ruby star gleaming in tho midnight
darkness of her raven hair.
Tho dark, brilliant face, with its
crimson ll(is and won,Irons I,lack
eyes, was indeed gloriously dazzling,
On this latal night tire lovely Sou-
thorn girl was at the height of hor
niURiiilicent boauly.
Bonnylin saw the gaze of mingled
wonder and ivdmiriition with which
Le Hoy regarded her as India swept
Into the room, nnd her heart .sunk
within ber.
To add to hor liiUqtf'^ss, Lo Rov
-rout. ,u-.-ty_..t. liestuo*Tr'-Oia wnrfi tnoy
entered tho couch.
India was never gayer, Bi nnylin
never mpi'O silent.
A tall, dark form advancing up
the avenue was just, in lime to seo
tho couch roll rapidly awuy from tho
rierpont mansion ere be could roach
speaking distance to hail it.
Calling a cab, he sprung hastily
into it.
"f)o you see thnt coach ahead, just
turning tho corner yonder?" he cried
excitedly, as ho pressed a hill into
tho driver's hand. "Overtake it and
I will double your foe; lively, n.w,
my man!'.'
The driver touched his tap lo his
liberal customer, sptun. to Iho box.
nnd with the speed of iho wind, was
bearing tlown upon the coach in advance of it; but to Basil _cvrrno's
excilcd fancy It .oemed almost to
creep along.
Suddenly it came to a uulck halt.
"There is the couch, sir." whisper-
oil tho driver. "We aro not in lime
lo see who alighted from it., I hero
was suili a crush of com lies aho.id.
The occupants must have por.0 in
wilh the throng going up ihe marlilo
steps. There seems to he a hall, sir,
or something of lhat Kind goin . en,"
While ho was stionkin . Basil Severne grimly ull hied.
Mrs. Lincoln's hall had long boon
looked forward to us tbe gala event
of the season.
The magnificent parlor, the spacious, glii teeing ball-room, nnd tha
rosc-emboweri tl reception-i'ooins wore
thronged wilh tho elite of the cily.
It was a I rillianl. gathering of gorgeous costumes antl lovely fact!; but
amidst that vast 1b:'oug there was a
murmur of deep ittlmlrntlon ns Lo
Hoy i'ierpont entered Ihc hall-room
Willi tlio two leiuliei.—one like a
Whito flower, tho other lil-o a glowing passion ruse.
"I th til be Ihe invy of every gentlemen here to-night, as Iho escort ol
two tan h (.'harming creatures," murmured Lc Hoy, i.:i ho found them
seats   together,   bowling     low   Ijoforo
"Ah, thero is Frank Kent'n, nn
old college chum ol mine, coming
this wuy. You know hiin, India. Allow me Io present you to him, Bonnylin: ho is a charming fellow, a hitler I'oe lo his enemies, and a chiiin-
pion truer than steel to his friends."
The next luoinenl, a tail, d.irk-
oyo.'l, pleasant facoel young man was
Standing before Ihc Ifio, acknowledging the Introduction lo his friend's
young brltto.
"A beautiful, innocent lillle cron-

fairy, llnl she did not. take hor eyes
from her husband nnd her beautiful
rival, no matter In  whal   part  of the
ballroom thoy happened to he.
She kiiw l.o Hoy hold close to his
heart Ihe lovely, while, rounded arm

Haiti i l.o occasion demanded.
At last—i.n, aeiiveraneo irom torture!—Ihe music ceased, the .wait-
was over.
To  Bonnylin's  dismay,   India     and
her hiislitind did not cross the    ballroom to take seals by  her side;   but
[sealed themselves quite at the     further end of the room.
Quadrilles, lanceis nnd waltzes followed each other, and e.ih timo Lc

"Why, I'ierpont is behaving tile a

Calling Lo ItSy aside, he ventured
to expostulate wilh his frior.il; but
Le Hoy turned haughtily on his heel.
"As ling as my wife does not object to iny dancing with Miss Margrave, 1 am quite at loss to understand why you should take il upon
yourself to interfere," lie said t ut-
tingly. "1 haven't the least doubt
hut what you arc only loo anxious

Meanwhile Bcnnylin had sunk hue';
among the flowering shrubs, while
and agitated, glad lo bo alone where
no human being could seo what sho
was suffering.
But she was not destined to enjoy
tho keen blessing of 'privacy long:
fur, a moment later, two young nnd
beautiful women swept aside tho
crimson velvet portieres, nnd stepped
out upon the balcony together.
Neither of them saw tho motionless
flgurp, quite hidden from view by tho
thick, flowering foliage and tho
darkness, or tho words they uttered
would never had boon spoken.
.Such a marriage!" exclaimed one;
"a pretty littlo creature, but so un-
suitcii to handsome Le Hoy rierpont." -
At tho mention of her husband's
name Bonnylin loaned forward, kt oping hersell well out of sight, and listening intently.. .
"I,o Hoy Tool's anything but con-

clinging to your arm will drive ine

i cried, giving way to Ihe wildest and

All in that room heard the ttrrible

In aa instant Le Hoy had grasped
Bonnylin's cold, white hand firmly.
"Oo back inlo Iho conservatory,
Miss Margrave," he said, turning lo
India. "My wife shall join you thoro
in a moment or so, and ask your
pardon tot- the insult you have suffered at hot- Hands.*'
"Never!" sobbed Bonnylin, raising
hor groat lovely eyes to his faco. "I
would die first, Le Hoy. Vou have

And here tho beautiful, rash, imprudent child broke down completely •

was only a Jest."
"Le Hoy," cried tho miserable
young bride, flinging herself on her
knees beforo hor exasperated husband, stung to the quick by tho
gleam of insolent triumph and malignant hatred she had seen in her
rival's black cyos as fhe had turned
away, "pity, Le Hoy," sho murmured. "I cannot humble myself so—oh,
no, no, no!"
"Vou know the consequences then,"
ho whispered sternly; "place me

Flinging tho clasp of those death-

He had never once considered the
gootl cause poor little llonnylin had
for hoc bitter jealousy — the one
thought that occurred lo him was,
that she hud disgraced  him.
As I/O Hoy turned awuy white as
death, the music struck up again
gayer than ever.
The guests were too well bred to
Comment or OVOil retoi' to Ul! unpleasant occurrence, and Ihe dancing
went on
But they noticed that Bonnylin,
tho hapless young britlo, rose slow
ly and walked gropingly—liko one
stricken blind'— lo the dim conservatory.
Ono moment of time after she had
passed through the ivy-covered arch
out of their sight—ono moment, and
thou iv horrible cry rang shrilly out
from the conservatory.
Thou followed a moment of tho
wildest confusion. Le Hoy I'ierpont
was tho lirst to reach the spot, and
the hoiirl-rending sight that, mot his
gaze he never forgot whilo his lifo
Ias led.
In the dim, wavering light, cmuch-
ing back among the palms, her luce
blanched, hoc groat blue eyes opened
wielo with terror, trembling like a
leaf in a storm, und clutching a
dripping dagger in her lillle hand,
was llonnylin—his young wife; autl
at, hor feel, writhing iu death, lay
India' Margrave, the hot blond spurting Irom a wound in Iter brtast, the
life-blood crimsoning the pulo loses
aini ng which she lay.
"Good heavens! who has done this
awful deed?'' rang from lip to lip ol
the horrified, paralyzed throng—"this
horrible,  fiendish  deed?'''
India Mnrgi'ave raised her great
dark eyes, fast glazing in death;
she opened the bloodless lips, over
which the death dew was Stealing,
anil she gaspid forth the words,
clutching at Le Hoy's hands:
"Sho—your wife—has dono it!"
Then, raising, horsed I with a last
dying effort, she crietl aloud;
"Hour  all!   llonnylin   I'ierpont has
murdered me!"
And with    this awful  charge noon
her nps sh, foil back—dead.
For i>n Instant thoso gathered
around wore too hon-iiiod fnr speech
o;- action: they vie panic-stricken,
and in that .supreme moment, with a
low cry ol horror, Lo Hoy Pierpont
sprung to his young wife's side.
"Bonnylinl" he cried hoarsely,
"why have you tlcno this hoiilb'l'o

am a licll man, bat all my gold cannot save you! oh, why havo you

"Just explain, then, if you cm,"
cried some voico in tho crowd, "how

"I have little to tell, ar.d It is
simply this," replied Bmnylii firmly. "I conic to the conservatory to

cried, raising her solemn blue eyes
to his.
He heard tho murmur that ran
through tho crowd, ami he know
thoy had sent for the officers of tho
law. A moment more, und thoy
would be upon tho scene.
Like a wounded bird tracked down
to hoi' doom, Bonnylin crept closer
l.o her young husband, laying her
soil white arms around his neck,
anil hor cold, pale check against his
will a bitter sob.
"Save mo, Le Hoy, Iovo," she
|. waked, piloously.
.11 was his young wife trembling
and quivering in his strong clasp,
who wns pleading with him to save
her—the young, sweet, dimpled-facid
girl he had wooed nnel won so short
a timo before—tho tender bride they
would tear Irom his arms, and cast
into u prison cell, and whose soft,
white brow they would brand so
lio forgot the hcnuliful girl who
had caused it. all—forgot all save the
awful, deadly peril of his young
"Bonnylin!" ho cried, straining her
madly to his heart. "I will save you,
or wo will die together, my darling.
Groat Ood! there nre tho officers coming, but thoy shall never take you
from ine until they walk over my
dead body!"
"IPerhaPs tho murder was dnno
with a view to robbery," suggested
a voice in Iho crowd, but that theory fell quickly to pieces; the sparkling gems still glistened in iho
dead girl's eel's, and the necklace of
pearls which encircled hor whito
throat remained untouched!
Nothing was missing.
Bobbery was evidently not the object. On tho oilier hand, every cir-
cumstanco seemed to conspire to fasten tho deed on Bonnylin.
Lo Hoy Pierpont felt a faintness
like death creeping over him.
Was this a nighlmiiro?
He felt that hir, brain was turning
with the frenzy of madness.
He struggled desperately for self-
command as ho gazed tlown Into
Bonnylin's whito, lovely, childish

while hor beautiful eyes full of tho

Oh, did she know—did sho even
dream of tho awful position in which
sho Stood? No. sho was as unconscious of hor peril as a littlo child,
she evidently believed that tho explanation she gave tho assembled throng
would convince thorn.
At the startled murmur, "tho officers are coming," Lo Hoy's chaotic
thoughts seemed to gather shape.
But it wns not the minions of the
law, it was the host and hostess hurrying to tho scene, 'l.iere wns a
brief respite of a fow moments, und
that woultl give him timo to think
out a way of escape.
Suddenly he became aware that
somo ono was calling his name softly from behind a clump of flowering
shrubs closo by.
"Le Hoy," whispered Iho voico,
swiftly antl cautiously, "for Heaven's sake listen, it is 1, your friend
Frnton. Don't you see the awful
peril of your young wife? sho don't
realize il."
"Yes," whispered I.e Iloy, hoarsely,
"I see, I'Ynlon, antl I havo been calculating tho chance of instant flight;
every avenue of escape seems shut

"I have thought—I have acted for

cautiously. "Listen closely. At tho

"Now. attend me well, Pierpont.

Whilo il is line that some men arc

there is nevertheless much ground for
belief that men uf the right stamp

requiring special physical adaptation—vid thnt the surest, evidence of
a man's fitness to rule in ono field
is his success in another. The fact
is nlso sonwitimes lost, sight of, in

A striking illustration ot this can

and appreciated by Westerners. Ho
is lovel-lroadod, ready-witted and
broad-minded. His personality is
both interesting and nttrncllve. Of

Clever Ncwsiiaper none.
On the battlefield of Antietam Mr.
McClure met General William J. Palmer, then a captain, and strongly urged
him not to continue bis movements as
a spy after Leo bad crossed into Virginia, but the gallant young soldier
gave no promise as to what ho would
be likely to do, nnd the very first night
after Leo crossed the Potomac he wns
again In Lee's camp and brought back
Important Information to General Mc-
Again ho returned nnd entered the
Confederate lines, nnd when he did not
report after n week It was assumed
that he had been captured antl would
probably be executed as a spy. He
bad been captured, wns tried and condemned ns a spy and sentenced to be
executed, but he wns saved by a clever
newspaper device determined upon
nfter a conference In Philadelphia between President Ji Edgar Thomson of
the Pennsylvania railroad. Colonel Scott
and Mr. McClure. Thomson took special
Interest In Palmer, as he had boon bis
secretary; and wnr much attached to
It wns decided that Washington dispatches should be prepared for till of
the Philadelphia morning papers announcing the arrival at llie capital of
Captain William .1. Palmer, stating ln
what particular linen of the enemy he
hnd operated, and adding Hint he hnd
brought much important Information
that could not bo given to the public
at that timo; These dispatches appeared next morning In nil the Philadelphia papers, prominently displayed,
and of course reached the southern
lines within forty-eight hours,
The result wns that Captain Palmer's
Identity was never established In Itleh-
moiid, and his exception was thus suspended. In n little while, when some
prisoners had been exchanged, there
was a vacancy mude In the list of the
exchanged men by death. Palmer's
friends had him take the place and
name of tho dead soldier, and he thus
escaped and returned to tho service.

.The Ideal.
,1 think that the song tbat is sweetest
Is the one that is never sung—
It lies at the heart of the singer
Too grand for moral tongue.
And sometimes in the silence
Between the day and the night,
- He fancies that Its measures
Bid farewell to the light.
A picture that ls fairer
.Than all that havo a part
A uioug the masterpieces
In marble halls of art,
>Is que that haunts tho painter
Iu all his golden djeains,
And to the painter only
A real picture seems.
• The noblest, grandest poem
Lies uot in bine aud gold,
Among the treasured volumes
That rosewood bookshelves hold;
,But In bright and glowing visions
It conies into the poet's brain,
And when ho t^ies to grasp lt
,JIo finds his efforts vain.
A fairy hand from dreamland
.Beckons us hero nud there,
And whou wo strive to clasp it
11.vanishes iuto air.
Audi thus our fair ideal
Floats always jnst before,
And we, witb longing spirits,
Koucu for it evormore.

collars required in a well-planned
wardrobe is a little discouraging to tbe
girl whose dress allowance is moderate.
However, she need not be too restricted
iu choice and many smart models are
offered at all the large shops at reasonable prices ,  :..'
One of white monsseline de sole embroidered with feathentltching, headed
with steel and ornamented with open
stitching is very pretty a. it not only
forms a stock, but is finished with two
long tab ends In front that almost reach
the waist line. Much the same model
can be bad with a light intermingling
Stocks with plisso jabots of lace in
front are of panne velvet and lace
beaded with steel. The colors include
black, yellow, royal bine, brawn and
white. Another stock is made of shaded ribbon, tbe lighter hues being worked next the throat, and long ends
knotted at intervals falling nearly to
the waist. This cau be had in almost
any shade one may care to order.
Stocks too, are to be h id in hand embroidered of a day long since past, and
gowns are unrivalled. There is bnt
little apparent change in the skirt of the
moment from the one we have worn all
summer, only -»ow the skirts are stiffened with hair cloth, crinoline, and even
wires to produce the proper swirl. This
necessitates an interlining and a drop

gowns and if the skirt wire is omitted
the drop invariably has tt. Hair cloth

Elbow sleeves are Been on most of

dress occasion or less formal wear, and
where a forearm sleeve is used the
material is usually of lace or some thin
fabric following the outline of the arm

deep cuffs are utilized, tailor frocks of
severe build are to have regulation coat
