.Mrs. Winington ws.s nfllicfoil with few
scruples. Her own desires, her own
ambitions, were the ends at which she
aimed. But being a healthy, fairly we-11-
tempercd woman, en very good terms
with herself, she never" quarreled nlmut
ii-ities, aud could gracefully give up what
.he did not eare much about. Intensely
perceptive' of what she really wonted,
who always reserved her forces for occasions worthy of them. The suceo.id-
ing twenty-tour hour*, she devoted to
masterly inactivity.
Though kind nnd gentle with Edith to
a degree that woke the keenest stings of
self-reproach in tha t young woman's
breast, she was so muoh engaged tliat
slie was reluctantly compelled to leave
her a good deal to ne.'seli'.
Edith longed to solace her depressed
t-ririt by writing a full and true history
of the trial through which she had pass
ed to Mrs. Miles, bnt she had a deep
impression t-harit would be dis'.o.vnl to
Mrs. -WluingtcD, as Well as to Beaton,
if she fold the story of her rejectieu o;'
the latter. She wns In truth rather
miserable. The fact of her extreme
loneliness was borne in upon her with
telling force. Her eyes liud been open'
id ns they never had been before. New
needs had spruug up. She could not
go back to the bare exlsxence the had
led before she met Beaton and his sister.
Her tastes were quiet enough, but br-r
eyes had been opened, aud warmly BS
the still loved her kind old friend Mrs.
ililos, sho felt that life would indeed be
dreary had she no other conipan'onship.
Mrs. Winington saw. with unith s-.itis-
fitctien the pale, pensive little face ot
ner young fiiend grow paler and Kidder. She took no notice of the remarkable fact that fo.' three days Mnitland
hnd not appeared ut luncheon, tea or
•tinner. This silence wns, in Airs. Win-
burton's opinion, a bad symptom, and
she determined to break it by a bold mil
masterly stroke.
Beaton hnd followed his sister's injunctions, and duly sent her letters of
the most lugubrious description yet naturally written—his dramatic Instinct',
which nnde him a priceless jewel in
country houses when theatricals wore
bdng organized, suggesting the most
characteristic modes of expression. A
separate slip generally accompanied t.hi;
effusion, in which he implored hi* recall
iroin banishment, and vowed the most
abject obedience tn his sister's commands. He quite agreed with Lady
Mary's view of Jack-Mnitland'. menial
ciiidition, and urged Mrs. Winington no.'
to let him be cut out by that clumsy
"I forgot to tell you that Sir. Mill
Ii nd had been summoned nwuy, Mi
mother is dangerously ill," said Mr.<.
Winington to Edith, ns they sn-t to
pother in the drawing-room, the various
habitues who had dropped into afternoon
lea having deported, und left the patron'
era and her protegee to a rare tete-B
"I am very sorry," exclaimed Editili,
laying down nn illustrated pnper slie
hnd Just taken. "He is very fend of
his mother."
"I did not think you knew he hail u
mother," said Mrs. Winington, SUM ply.
"He hns spoken of her to nie some-
tie3," said Edith, innocently, quite un-
"Sho is 11 charming lndy. I wns gv
ing to say 'old lady,' but in spile of her
white hair there is n perennial youth
about her that is quite delightful. I
like Jack Mnitland very much ton. Un
used to ho such a good fellow, but I
was "Hot 'quite pleased with liim the
other day."
Theie was not any violent curiosity In
the tome.
"No," continued Mrs. Wlhicgton,
thoughtfully; "I was vexed with Mm. 1
thought him too manly for that sort of
eelf-ocnccit. Perhaps I ought not mi
tell you, but it may be usef id ns a warning not to trust appearances." She pat.s

I shall not be sorry to leave; yonr little
nicnd is so unsophisticated thnt she
shows her flattering preference for me
In the most unmistakable manner. Il
would really be touching were it not so
funny, and I otn not disposed to fall iu
love In return."
There was a moment's silence. Thu
cider rose slowly In Edith's cheeks, ns if
shame nnd movtificnUou were gradually
penetrating her soul. Though the did
not tbenni of doubting Sirs Winington,
she halt' unconsciously exclaimed:
"He could not h.ivo said thai."

to pnss the larger part of her existence.

unkind; they were all well-disposed, piac-
tieal lads and lasses—fond of tiheir
mother in a way, but scarce companions.
She could never open hcT heart to any
of tiiem, except to Jack, the strongest
nod most combative of tlicra all.
Between the mother and her younger
son there wns profound sympathy, and
the dream of Jack's maturer tnaubcod
was to make the evening of his mother's
deys peaceful, bright, and full of' af-
feetlon nnd wurmth.
Willi his father, Jack had little in
ii-nimriu. Major Maitland wns narrow
ttr.d domineering, yet desirous of acting
jestly toward all men; exceedingly capable Within cert'iin limits, nnd conscientious in the fullillmout of his ditties, so
far ns he understood thera. Ue had
been invaluable ns an adviser, almost a
ruler, to Jbls friend and employer, the
late laird of OrJalgrothie; but years nnd
gout were beginning to enfeeble him,
and make his stern nnd once equable
temper irritable, at times querulous.
From llie time her son returned Mrs.
Mnitliind began slowly, very slowly,'to

lcquited the utmost cnie. The least occupied of he.' ninried daughter, had
hastened to assist in nursing her, and
6/ill stayed on. But it wns her son's
daily visit nnd quiet talk that Comforted
and supported the invalid,
Willi all his tender care for, nnd anxiety about,. his mother, Maitlnnd's
thought, often strayed to the drama he
knew wns being enacted in London. The
i imposed little figure of Edith, ihc
quuint grace of her unstudied movements, the curious, intelligent simplicity
ibnt socmen to expose the tinseled unreality with which she wassiirrbuiidcO,
whenever she was brought into contact
with it, wtiiv perpetually in It Is mind.
The honest preference she bad unconsciously shown him h."d completed the
charm she exercised. Not thnt he nl-
lowed himself to believe thnt at projettt
it was more thnn the friendliness of In-
s'jnolive (rust; but it might be more.
It would be a delicious occupation to
win the full womanly love of tli'o do-
lice, unworldly creature, whoso gentleness was not weak, whose Ignorance
was not dull. She would be a kind,
tender daughter to his mother; she
would lie happy in n quiet country home.
What n contrast to his first stormy
love affair, and to some slighter exiici-
mecs through which he hnd since passed! lie often conjectured how she was
faring antong the shrewd worldlings

gratified Major Maitlnnd by expressing
his hearty approval of nil he hnd seen
nnd learned in the course of the morning.
"Jack hasn't gone about the world
with his eyes shut. I must say,".-quoth
the oldfnetor. "He has a shrewd eye
for cattle, and is a decent judge of
crops. I think lie is anxious to do his
duty by the property. Indeed, I should
have lad to give up some time past, it
I hadn't had him beside me. My eyes
nre failing me, nud I can't get about as
1 used."
"You couldn't hnve a better lieutenant," said Colonel Winington, pleasantly; aud Jack smiled as he looked back,
uot so very far either, to his father's
stem renunciation of him as n ne'or-tlo-
wccl, nnd a dlsginoo to the flunily.
"Shall we hnve n cup of coffee and
a cigar in the balcony?" he suggested.
"By nil means," returned Winington,
riting. "You have u delightful vio.v
here, Major Maitland. There's nothing
like it up at the house."
"Perhaps not. Give mc the Scotsman,
Jack. If you'll excuse me, I will stop
here und hnve a ncp."
After enjoying the fragrance of theflr

Colonel Winington observed:

culling his favorite colly, set. forth for
a solitary ramble lo commuiic with his
own heart, to search out his spirit, and
strive to come .to eome conclusion respecting his future line of conduct.
As he pressed up the side of Craig-
retllifi hill with firm, elastic trend, his
spirits rose, his purpose disengaged Itself from the mist of doubt and depression which had blurred it, and at length,
reaching a gniBsy nook sheltered by a
big grey crag, where many u time In

while hi. muster slept or rested.
But sleep and dreams were fur from
Mankind's brain. Ills thoughts begun
to lake order. If Benton had tried his
ci nuce and failed, ono barrier to his own
progress wns removed. Why should he
not do his best to win what ho so ardently desired? How wa. it that he
hod so quickly grown to Iovo this quiet,
pale, half-developed girl? To this there
wns no distinct reply; only his heart ail'
Rwered, "I love her;" only his Imaginn-
thru pictured with n vivid flash the do
llcate purity of her unpretending as-
•licet, tho sweet t tilth fulness of hor
stonily, thoughtful eye*. What n restful home nich u woman could make!
Wlint endless interest might be found
In the growing knowledge of a nntnre

though perfectly candid, lind yet n veil
of lender reserve. And this defense-
loss creature wns at tho mercy of move
intriguers, careful only of their own ad-
vnntuge nnd reckless of her happiness!
It was the duty of nny disinterested
friend to rescue her If possible.
Then the recollection Of her welcoming smile, hor trusting glunce, made h'«
pulses thrnh. "She liked me belter thnn
nny of the rest; 1 think she did, but I
ought not to be too sure. 1 IhoutIM
Jenti would hove stuck to mo through

not to be a coward nbout opinion, when
I know my own motives, when I krffiiv
that were I rich nud she hadn't n rap, it
would only make me more eager to
marry her. Then she is so lonely, so
unprotected. Old Mrs. Miles is n capital
woman, but no companion for Edith.
She can never go -back to- her old life,
How desolate she is! I If I do cot ex'
oggerate my chances, all may be light.
I must make my father come to n definite arrangement; the laborer Is worthy
of his hire. As for Edith's money, thoy
m-.y tie it up ao that I can never handle
a penny, if only they let me have lier-
««if; but shal) I be deferred from securing my own happiness, certainly, perhaps hers, by a specter of false pride?
No; I wili be true to myself."
Then the regular sequence of thought
became confused with sweet glowing
visions of perfect understanding of rosl
and security, of gentle caresses. Yes,
as soon as his mother was a little
stronger he would return to London,
and risk an avowal of his hopes and
fears. As to the guardians, well, only
let him get Edith', consent, and he
would mnnago them. When could he
stout? Not while Colonel Wiuiueton
remained. As to Mrs. Maitland, she
was distinctly ont of danger, ,aDd Ills
sister could stay for ten days or eo long
cr. He might run up to town on Sat
urday, call at the studio on Monday,
and coax Edith to take a turn lu Kuis-
ington Gardens. There he. would learn
bis fate. Indeed It was quite possib e
thnt Mrs. Winington, disappointed by
the Ill-success of her favorite scheme,
might hare made her house too hot to
hold the offending guest. If so he would
find Edith's present address, and follow. Yes, he would tell the dear mo
ther that a matter of vital lmpirt ince
required his presence in town, und sho
would let him go. Soon he hoped to return with news that would cheer and
comfort her.
So, in a restless but hopeful mood.
Jock Maitland rose up, a clear purpose
onoe more steadying his will and walk
cd home less rapidly than he had sel
At the entrance he met h.'g sifter
with a letter in her hand. "Oh, Jack,
I have been looking everywhere for yon.
I have just heard from Allan," (ler
husband), "His uncle Mncnlister, who
is going beck to India, has telegraph
ed ot say be is coming to-morrow for a
week just to bid us good-by, and I must
really be at home to do the honors, for

Important personage to us. I will re
turn the moment he is gone, and yon
will stay with mother; she renlly would
rather have you thnn nny of us."
"But, wait a bit Jessie. I want very
much to go up to town."
"I am very sorry, Jack, but I really
cannot stay. I have ordered lleorgo to
bring round the wagonette; I can just
catch the 6.30 train, and roach home
about 10."
Jack was fairly caught. Destiny was
too strong for him- He could uot leave
his mother, and his sister's absence w«s
prolong-ed beyond tho stipulated weak,
Meantime letters of the tcudercst,
kindest inquiries from Mrs. Winington,
both to Maitlnnd aud the invalid, came
frequently, but with rare mentkn of
Edith, yet Maitland could make out that
she was still residing with her fnseiu
nting protectress. At last Mrs. Moth-
yen returned to take her place lesiile
the delicate mother, and tho same day
Maitlnnd started for London.
Mrs. Winington was growing cross
and impatient; she wns tired of tbe season, she hnd two tempting invitations,
cue to join a party of pleasant peop.e
on board a yacht, and one, still oiorc
attractive, to a hospitable country In us;
within seven or eight miles of Croigr-J-
thie. She had renewed her acquaintance with the owner (who had lately
succeeded to the family estates), and
with Ms wife, whom Bhe cultivated sedulously; she had almost determined to
spend August with them in the neighborhood of her old home, where she resolved Jack Maitland should be" her
squire ond cicerone, if—if only Edith
would make up her mind to marry Leslie and hare done with it.. Still, she
kept a fair face, and watched unceasingly for the right moment ut which
Beaton might reappear.
Edith was very still and humble, looking and feeling miserable; she had learned enough of the new world into which

During his recent, visit lo Toronto,
Bishop Loftus, ot Kccwatini gavo
some remarkable instances of tho
piety and devotion.whieb jto said was
Universal among tlie Urco .Indians of
tho Hudson's Bay District, in thoso
regions -not Invaded by civilization,
which was killing off tho Indians and
virtually destroying tlio value of religious efforts among them.
■Bishop Loftus, who has labored lor
yenrs among the Creo Indians and
Eskimos of Hudson's Bay, said that
ho had seen Indian man ejid women
walk 10, ID, '20, or 25 miles through,
snow to attend a ch'iuch service, beginning nt 8 a.m. on Sunday, and
ho had known them to travel 200 to
4.00 miles to kneel nt the Lord's
table. In 03 per cent, of tbo Indian,
tents on tho shores of'tho Hudson's
Buy- family prnyer wns conducted
night and morning, and hs had seen
tho Indians fast till Sunday rather
than kill ganto on the Lord's Day,
which was a marked contrast to
many professing Christians, who,
when relieved of tlio constraints of
tho city,.had not scrupled to go hunting on tho Sabbath for sport. Tho

Facts tliBat tlio Kiel Canal.
The Kiel, or North Sea ond Baltic
Canal, was constructed by tho German Government between 1887 and
1895. It's length is 01 1-3 miles,
aVerago breadth 21.9 feot, and depth
294 'est. Its width allows large ironclads to pass through the Herman
territory of Holstein from tho Baltic
to the North Sea without the dangers and delay of the long voyage
round Jutland. Tho averago timo
taken to pass through tha canal is
from eight to ten hours. ^
■Its value must be measured both
commercially and strategically. The
commercial value and its use by tho
Mercantile marine, is only slowly developing, for tho saving In time ia
to soma extent neutralized by tho
tolls charged.
Tho advantage strategically to
Oormany of a securo inland waterway is enormous. Hor fleet, wishing
to cross from tha Baltic to,the North
Sea, '-can now do so in safety, eo
long as tho month of the'Elbe and
Kiel Harbor uro in her hands., A
distance, of over 450 miles through
dangerous passages Is thus saved.

From tho first Professor Robertson
hns maintained that grain, fonder
and liny, when iioltl by the fanner,
carry airny lastly more of th. iv;-
Cuiriulated fertility of his land than
when these' nro worked lip into
dairy product, with the nid ot brains
and,common sense. Five pounds of
cheese soil for as much as a bushel uf
wheat nnd remove from tlio land
scarcely a tithe as much of its plant-
food.. Orio' hundred dollnis' woith of
nutter bears' off from the soil less of
Its valuable elements than.five cents'
worth of liny. To?m ijap'oi'taiit extent, the same is trie iii'ivaring poultry for the market, and here he is
never tired of repeating that, what
may be saved.by wise economy may
Ije fur exceeded by commanding the
highest prices, in producing tho first
qualities. The best brands of bacon,
the host chickens, bring prlcos so
much higher, than second best that to
aim at anything else is to waste
time. In plainly wordod and illustrated pamphlets he hns sent information broadcast regarding the best
strains of pigs, sorts of feed, pens
und Ircatmcnt. Tie result is most
gratifying; six- years ago Canada exported in'linnw, bacon and'pork, ?4,-
600,000' worth; last yoar the figures
tyore 812,500,000. Nearly treble is
a- good increase,' but twclvo times is
still better, nnd- that is tho rate at
which the poultry exports advanced
from 1890 to 1002. At Government
stations the hist strains of chickens
have been, ascertained ns well as the
best modes of- artificial hatching,

Destroying 111. Indians.
A deplorable stato of affairs is reported lu exist among tho Indians
in tho Ponce River District and contiguous sections of tho Northwest.
Mr. J. M. Macoun, of the Geological
Survey, who has jusl returned from
an exploring trip, says the unlives
are being destroyed by alcohol sold
under tho guiso ot perfumes and, essences. Tho law permits onch vesl-
den't to import twonty gallons ol
spirits 'aanually, a proportion ot
which probably finds its way into tlio
stomachs of tho rod men. But it is
not to tho permit system that tbo
prevailing drunkenness is attributed.
The law is well enforced by tho
Mounted Police and tho quantity of
spirits that enters under pfrmlfc- is
not sufficient to work tho demoralization of tho Indians that is apparent on every side. To evade (ho law.
Which is designed to protect tho Indians, special brands of essences nnd
perfumes nro manufactured In the
East for the trado of tho Northwest.
Jt Is almost pare alcohol, flavored .ns
"peppermint," "Florida water" and
"eau de Cologne." Theso decoctions
nre sold nt oho trading posts, and
'tlie result is tho moral and physical
degeneration of tbo Indians to a
poiilt that promises their speedy extinction under the most lamentable
Dten yell  Motor*   Cnoao   Dl.lnrtmnce

—Tho illness and euro of Mr. George
Hobertson, of 39 Antoine St., this
city, Is furthor convinci..'ig proof that
Uhou'raatism and Dropsy are both
tho results of Diseased Kidneys. Mr.
Robertson had Dropsy and jjiieumu.-
fclsm for live years. He cured his
Kidneys iiy using Dodd's Kidney
Pills and both disease, departed (or
good. Speaking of his caso Mr .Robertson says :
"I had boon troubled with Dropsy
and Rheumatism for five years. I am
now well and It is all owing to
Dodd's Kidney Pills, ncforo I starts
ed using them I could hardly put tuy
feet to the floor they were swollen so
much from Dropsy. My arms used
to swell at times so that I could not
put my coat on.
"A friend advised me to use Dodd's
"Kidney Pills offering to pay for thera
if they did not help mo. lkiforo I had
used tho second box I felt a . great
improvement. T took seven boxes In
all and I don't fenotv what it is to b.
sick since."

The recent crime committed on
•ft. Pleasant, whereby a pnre aud
Innocent girl was so cruelly injured,
shoolit.be a sufttciont warning to parents
who have daughters to keep them at
home In the evening., or not allow them
•as unprotected. Hitherto, Vancouver
has been free from such dangers and
seoh twttble crimes.
Editor "The Advocate":
I see by the Soutn Vancouver Conncil
meeting held the 10th iust., that the
Conncil decided to offer $4.00 per ohaiu
to auy property owner who will clear
and grade the road allowance facing
hi. property, between hi. line and tho
road ditch, on the following roads, viz:
Centre road, River road, North Ann
road, We.tiuiuster road uud Westminster avenue.
This, unruly, is a one-sided piece of
business. Why not iuclndo all roads?
There are other roads in the Municipality that are, or soon will Lo of as much
importance aa the abovo mentioned,
and, whether or not, every property
owner must pay hi. taxed and all should
receive the same benefit.
Another fact 1 would call attention to
is, thut vt here new roads axe being built
the contractor i. allowed to throw
rubbish on tho allowance between thu
road ditch and line. This ia very on-
conragiug to the property owner, and
very ornamental.
In conclusion, I might odd that a
more satisfactory account of the Conncil
meetings could be published for the
benefit of tho Ratepayers.

There's never a day bo sunny,
But a little cloud appears;
There's never n life so happy
But has Its time of tears.
Yet the sun shines out the brighter
When the stormy tempest clears.
There's never a garden growing
With roseB In every plot;
There's never a heart so hardened
But It has one tender spot.
We have only to prune the borders
To find the forget-me-not.
There's never a cup so pleasant,
But has bitter with Its sweet;
There's never a path so rugged
That bears not the print of feet.
And we have a helper promised
For the trials we may meet.
There'B never a sun that rises,
But we know It will set at night;
The tints that gleam In the morning
At evening are Just a* bright;
And the hour that Is the sweetest
Ia between the dark and light.
There's never a dream »o happy
But the waking makes us sad;
There's never a dream of sorrow
But the waking make, us glad;
We shall look some day with wonder
At the troubles we have had.

The minister of a little Scotch village
waa at the bedside of a Scotchman
named Donald, preparing him by pious
exhortations for the great journey.
"Have you anything on your mind,
Donald?" he asked, "I* there any
question you would like to ask me?"
And tbe minister bent down to listen
to the dying man'* reply.
"Na, meenlster, I'm na afeard. I wad
like to ken tho' whether there'll be

Upon his spiritual counselor remonstrating with him on such a thought
at such a moment, he hastened to add,

I'd like to see It on the table."—Ex.

The new cloths are «o lustrous that
th«y look precisely like satin. And,
Indeed, there la », Pew broadcloth which
not only look* like satin when new,
but which keeps It. fflos* When It Is
old and which In so lustrous that not
even a sponging will take off Its sheen.
And how an.tlBfae.tory It I. to be able
to buy a, t>eo.ut,lfu} sloth gown and to
have It keep Its brilliancy, to have It
preserve Its color, its texture, and even
Its very Surface,- no matter when hap

A Wanhlngton woman who goes a
great deal to the diplomatic receptions
ordered a gown of cloth the color of
cream of tntlk. It was 'to be made In
1XM fashion, which Is a two-piece suit
The upper part wa. to be In shirtwaist
shape, while the lower part wa* to be
a .weep .Urt for evening wear. The
whole Waa to. be trimmed with flower
embroidery, and In thla respect the
woman gave her imodUte carte blanch..
The gown catrBv home .Imply gorgeous. Upon th* exquisitely glossy
cloth aklrt the*.> rMM *mbroldered
lovely little whit. ilow*r», all carried
out In a very narrow lacy braid. Over
this skirt hung on*i>f tl..u.,.aad upon
thla there were lbng ipray* of small
green leave*. Tbe .waist matched the
skirt. It. sleeve, wafe short and there
were chiffon puff* .below..     ,
This woman, who ha* few gowns,
will, after ahe has worn the dres* bait
a dosen time*, remove the tissue outer
part, and then she' will have a gown
of pure cream cloth trimmed with small
lacy white flowers."-'
If every woman, be she old or young,
admire* nice gown*, It Is none the leas
true that every woman has a particular
fancy for the handsome creation* that
are to be worn In the evening.

trimming*. But there la no woman who j
doe* not admire them, and there are!
few women who do not long to poasesss
iu.t such a gown.
And there 1. really no reason why
every woman with social hopes should
not have one handsome evening drees.
It need not be a decollete, for a great
many of the handsomest gowns are not
cut decollete, and It need not be too
long for use, for many of the nicest
French Importation, are made of substantial material. But It can be pretty,
and It-must be trimmed with some of
th. many little Intricacies which make
up so many gowns nowadays.
In these days when all kinds of trimmings can be bought, there Is no rea
son why a woman should not have a
very modish dress, and If .he be lndus-
trlouB she can have a French gown at
American prices. In the embroidery
stores there come fat little seed. In all
colors, which, when scattered over the
surface of a gown, look like French
knots, and there come the dearest little
lattice. In ribbon and In braid, which
are Ideal for the trimmings of yoke,
and the covering of stocks.
But It is of the possibilities of the
cloth gown that the faithful fashion
writer must sing, for cloth now comes
so thin aa to look like veiling, though
It wears twice aa well, and It also
come. In a. many colors a* silk and It
can be made up a* delicately as any
of the very fine fabric*. It Is as glossy
aa satin and you do not know It from
tbe latter material except a* you pinch
It in the lingers.
There Is the slightest tendency to
raise the waist line a trifle, and It is
noticeable more upon the gowns of
evening than upon those that are Intended for the day. Waists that were
formerly drawn down In a very long
and very low point ere now finished so
aa to look almost round, and blouses
that depended for their style upon the
front curve ore now cut off and worn
with a wide, high belt. f^Lt
The new evening belts are a little to
blame for the ehortening of the waist
for they are so very wide and so very
effective. They are made of leather,
of panne, of silk and of ribbon, and
they are wide and are fastened In the
back with a buckle. That ia one style
but there are others.
Mis. Alice Roosevelt wore a wide
white leather belt the other evening,
with a white taffeta dress. The belt
waa made of suede, very thin and very
crushable. It was laid round the waist
In many folds and the front was fastened with three white leather thong,
and a white leather covered buckle.
An evening waist of light brown lace
was caught at the belt by a crush
girdle of panne silk, which was pulled
down low In the front and drawn out
broad so that It made a very wide ornament for the waist. This wsb fastened Invisibly with hooks and eyes,
without a buckle.
Those who are slender enough can
take this wide crush belt and clasp It
round and round the waist with a
great buckle, which comes In front.
Tall and Blender girls affect this style,
and are the envy of their stout sisters,
and bo do women who are short but not
too stout. The .tout woman must be
careful to keep her waist line low, but
the slender woman con revel In the new
high waist line, which Is a revival of
the waist of ten years ago.
And what a year It Is for revivals
No sooner does one get accustomed to
the long pointed waist, with Its high
back and It. dipping front, than along
comes the wide round-and-round belt,
which Is precisely the one mother wore
In 1880 and 1890.

The word pomatum Is derived from
pomum, an apple, because pomatum
was originally made by macerating
ov.r-rlpe apples In grease. If an apple
be stuck all over with spice, such as
cloves, then exposed to the air for a
few days, and afterward macerated in
purified melted lard, or any other fatty
matter, the grease will become perfumed. Repeating the operation with the
same grease several times produces real
pomatum. According to a receipt pub
Uahed more than a century ago, the
form Is: Kid's grease, two pippins, an
orange sliced, a glass of rose water
and half a glass of white wine, boiled
and strained and Anally sprinkled with
oil of sweet almonds.
Torrioke honey, and almond paste to
use In massaging the arms, rub the
yolks of two eggs with one-fourth of
a pound of strained honey and two
ounces ground bitter almonds. Then
add slowly one ounce almond oil and
ope-half dram each of attar of cloves
and attar of bergamot.
