A stylish costume of moss-green
ladies' cloth made up on a taffeta silk
foundation has a yoke, sleeve-tops, and
extremely high Kaiser collar of
Breitschwanz fur, bordered with a band
of cut jet and chenille in lattice pat
terns. The skirt is finished with jet and
chenille trimming. The very large muff
matches the fur decoration, and the
toque is of green velvet trimmed with
brown feathers, velvet loops, a roll of
the fur, and a compact cluster of pur
ple violets. ,
• * *
The new toques are considerably
larger than former shapes, They are
wider and are therefore becoming to
women with slender faces, when the
trimmings are not arranged too straight
and high. Many of the French models
are composed of exquisitely shaded
velvets; that is, there is not a single
piece of shaded velvet used, for three
separate weaves. For instance, one
handsome toque is composed of a beau
tiful trio of tints, shading from deep
prelate purple to palest Parma violet.
Another has velvet grading from .lark
Jacqueminot red to rose pink, with three
ostrich plumes matching the three dis
tinct shades, held by a triangle-shaped
buckle of French brilliants. A third
model shows an artistic blending of
moss, mignonette, and stem green vel
vet, the hat being nearly covered with
standing and gracefu'ly drooping green

Pink in every tint and tone will be
used this winter for evening toilets of
satin matelasse, repped silk, taffeta,
plain satin Duchess, Liberty satin, un
der various beautiful transparent tex
tiles also of this lovely color; and for
handsome garnitures on dress toques
and bonnets, facings for velvet round
hats, and linings for velvet or cream
white cloth capes for opera or theater

Some plain but smart-looking winter
costumes of cloth or cheviot for women
of moderate means who will use the
suits for general wear during the entire
season are made with a beautifully
shaped and fitted princesse back and a
redingote front. The skirt beneath is
of a matching or contrasting color as is
preferred. Some of these gowns have
a fitted bodice front, trimmed simply
with braid or stitching and tailor but
tons, and often there is a guimpe Russe
inserted in the rounded opening about
the neck. For slender figures, how
ever, most of these new garments are
made with a trim-looking but seamless,
dartless front, slightly drooped, and
turned back over a vest of braided
cloth or with passementerie simulating
soutache braiding—or else a vest of
plaited silk framed with velvet rever3
that reach from the turn-down collar
to the waist. The sleeves are close-coat
shapes, and most of the models shew
the skirt still made with a slight dtp at

Just as there are a surprising variety
of fur muffs, huge, medium, and in
small drum styles, so also are there a
great number of fur wraps of different
styles, from the rare and costly Per
sian lamb, otter, and other fur New
markets and redingotes, tc the still
fashionable Eton jackets of mink, sable,
sealskin, etc. There are, besides, many
varieties in capes, beginning with the
fanciful "pen-wiper" pelerine with its
tie of fur ruffles and long stole ends, to
the envelopng Russian cloak of otter
or sealskin lined with white satin or
pink matelasse and finished with a
very large spreading hood bordered
with a band of ermine. The real Per
sian lamb, the beautiful and most last
ing of all rich furs, the otter, and the
cinnamon bear are accounted tha most
fashionable of all the furs of the win
ter. The most expensive garments that
are set forth are the complete princesse
dresses of fur, lined with nothing but
a firm but pliable satin lining.

Handsome tailor costumes of ladies'
cloth or broadcloth, in Russian green,
military blue, cocoa brown, or Parma
violet, shaped in redingote style, and
trimmed variously with sable, otter, or
mink fur, prevail largely among the
costly and elegant gowns made for first
appearance at the horse show. The
most novel among the many styles pre
pared for this occasion are in "bonne
femme" fashion, with kilted * skirts
showing the plaits stitched down mere
than half the length of the skirt, thus
preserving the close, flat look about
the entire upper portion, except just
at the back, where two graduated box
plaits are arranged. This plaited skirt
is not quite as long as other styles, and
the jacket is close-fitting at the back,
and open in front over a braided vest of
cream color, Roman red, or watermelon
* • a
Some of the most attractive of the
new long cloaks are those made of
dove-gray ladies' cloth, fur lined, and
trimmed outside with standing collar
and hood-revers of chinchilla fur. The
styles in small collars, scarfs, collar
ettes, boas and stole-fronted pelerines
are far more varied than they have
ever been before, and this season a
number of rather smart-looking imita
tion fur wraps have been set forth,
but a cape or coat of genuine silk seal
plush or ladies' cloth is a far better
and more durable choice than any sort
of imitation fur ever manufactured.
* * *
The newest vicunas for traveling and
walking costumes are wide diagonals
of soft, fine wool roughly woven, in a
single color, such as castor-brown, faun
or Roman blue, or else in two shad; s
of one color. More novel than these
are the pretty French diagonals ln
contrasting colors —Russian green with
cocoa, brown or violet; gray with plum
red, etc. Raised silk cords form nar
row stripes in black and dark brdwn,
on light but closely woven wools in
rich, beautiful, winter colorings. These
make charming house gowns, and light
dressy and comfortable dresses to wear
beneath the long fur or cloth redin
gote. These wraps are so heavy that
many women will continue to wear
their silk and satin dresses underneath
them the winter season through.
* * *
The new bayadere corduroys in hand
some winter colorings make stylish red
ingotes trimmed wjXh fur bands, and
worn over skirts of wool bengaline or
Venetian cloth. Another ;.ew form in
which the corduroy appears is as a
loose, rather long English sack coat en
suite with one of the new plaited skirts.
The winter invoices of corduroy are a
marked improvement on the old famil
iar gamekeeper weaves, being very
light and pliable and silky. The goods
in French hands are made to form en
tire costumes of the bayadere weaves,
in combination with English serge; and
the tailors are employing them in sev
eral new guises in" making up some
pretty skating costumes.
* * *
Swan's-down, thibet and collars of
white polar bear pelts are in fashion
as a decoration for evening wraps of
white, pink or Parma violet cloth, scar
let kersey or satin matelasse in a mix
ture of pale, soft pastel tints on a
cream or tea-rose pink ground. These
soft white fur trimmings are far more
becoming to the majority of women
than the opaque pearl white of the er
mine. This expensive and still fash
ionable decoration has in many in
stances this winter a finishing band
at the edge of the revers and collar of
very dark otter or jet black fur, which
mitigates its former trying effect.

One of the fads of youthful women

THE RECORP-TOIOH, SACRAMEKTO, SUNDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1899.
The capitalist looked up from the
card he held In his long-, slender fin
gers. He saw a dark eyed young fel
low with big shoulders and a resolute
chin. At least those were the distin
guishing characteristics the elder man

Then he added, with a little gasp, "not

The young man smilingly nodded.
Whereupon the elder man seized him
by both hands and forced him into a

my eyes? Why, you're just like your
dad. Well, well! Bless him, I haven't
seen him for twenty years. Calls you

"You, sir," said the young man.
"For me! Shake hands again, name
sake. You are a remarkably fine young
man. And how's father?"

The capitalist glanced through it with
a kindling eye.
"Sounds just like old George!" he
chuckled. "Urn-urn-urn. 'Loan you my
boy Jim. Teach him a little business.
Got some capital he might invest. Good
boy.' Urn-urn-urn. 'It would be funny,
wouldn't it, if Jim and your motherless
girl should take a shine to each other?
I wouldn't object. I know she comes of
good stock.' "
"What's that?" cried the startled
"That wasn't meant for you to hear,"
laughed the other as he folded the let
ter and pushed it in his pocket. Then
he added: "See here, my boy, you must
come along with us to Bevington. We
are going down there on my private
car; a thirty mile ride over our new
suburban road. I've got business with
a man at Bevington that must be at
tended to this noon. Then I've got to
be back here at 3 o'clock to meet a
New Yorker who is passing through.
My daughter Ethel, Miss Mayer, her
companion, and two young college fel
lows of her acquaintance will go on the
trip with me. Ethel will take along a
hamper and feed us in the car, and we
ought to have a jolly time. I want you
to meet my daughter."
"Thank you," said the young fellow.
"I believe I have already met her. I
went to your home to see you and found
you had left the house a little °arlier
than usual, and your daughter—l'm
quite sure it was your daughter—kind
ly told me that you never transacted
any business at home."
The two men laughed together.
"But you told her who you were?"
"No, I didn't," replied the young man.
"After her remark I couldn't very well:
It's business, you know, that brings me
James Norcross laughed again.
"She probably took you for a collec
tor," he chuckled. "But, here, we must
be off. We have to meet the others at
the square in just ten minutes."
They were there and waiting when
hte two men approached.
"Ethel," said the older man, "I want
you to become better acquainted w'th
James Protheroe of Kansas, whom you
haveo nly met in a business way, I be
lieve. You have often heard me speak
of his father.
The fair young girl, with just a slight
flush, extended her hand.
"The name of Protheroe is a house- 1
hold word with us," she said with a
smile that Jim Protheroe thought the I
sweetest he had ever seen. Then -he
presented him to Fraulein Mayer and '
made him acquainted with Mr. Hosmer
and Mr. Barrington.
"You've surely heard of Mr. Barring

Young Protheroe bowed gravely in
acknowledgment of the honor conferred
upon him in coming in personal con- 1

men looked at each other.

a „*r l hen the car sot under headway,
and Ethel s father called Jim to step to
the rear door and have a look at the
roadbed. Ethel had surprised the glance
that passed between Hosmer-and Bar
rington. It made her feel a little cha- i
grined. They were evidently sneering
at the -Western young man. Really
there was something different about
rl m ' HiS clothes w ere not quite Ike
the other men's. He didn't wear them
wua just the same nonchalance He
appeared rather heavy and slow. Very
likely he was as dull as he acted. A.nd
yet he certainly seemed a very present
able youth. Some people might even
call him handsome.
Her train of thought was interrupted
by her father's voice.
"Why, bless my swul, boy," he was
saying, "you know more about railway
building than I do. Where did you'
pick it up?"
"Helped lay out a road in Western
Kansas," replied Jim. "That's one of j
the things we learned at Adams I
believe I have the right to put 'civil
engineer' after my name."
So he did know a little something,
thought the girl, but it seemed like
such uninteresting knowledge. Truly
he was decidedly different from the
Eastern boys. f
Then her father and Jim came into
the car. and the conversation became
Ethel noticed that Jim held his own
pretty well when he did talk, but for
the most part he was but a listener.
There was one thing she was grateful
to him for. She knew that he admhed
her. His frank, open glance told her
that. But he had the good, sense not
to annoy her by any special attentions.
Pretty soon the little party scattered.
Jim and the young men going out on
the rear platform to smoke, leaving
f/ther and daughter and chaperon in
"What do you think of Jim?" said
"Rather strong of Kansas, isn't h° 9 "
I don't know," said her father.
' He doesn't make any parade of his
talents. He's just like his old dad.
There wasn't a keener boy in town. We
were chums, you know, and both of us
started in without a dollar. I fancy
we've both done pretty well."
"Is Mr. Pmtheroe's father a man of
property?" inquired Ethel.
"I should say he was! The last I
heard about him he owned the opera
house, the hotel, the bank, the finest
residence in town, and held the first
mortgage on the biggest meeting house.
Jim's financial future is all right. He's
an only child, you know."
"No, I don't know," said Ethel.
The big hamper turned out to be the
most bountifully loaded, and everybody
brought along a picnic appetite. Then
they rolled into Bevington, and leaving
the ladies in charge of the Eastern men.
James Norcross took the Kansas lad
and started to keep his engagement
with the local townsmen. It was not
a long engagement, and at 1 o'clock
they were back in the car, and the cap
italiat signalled the motorman to go
ahead on the return trip.
"We should be able to run the thirty
two miles back to Cleveland nicely in
two hours," he said to Jim. "I must
be there at 3 o'clock, and we have a
clear track all the way. We've had
litigation over this road and it isn't do
ing a regular business yet, but we'll be
running on schedule in a day or two."
They were out of earshot of the oth
ers, and Jim leaned toward the capi

Ethel was unaware that anything un
usual had taken place. She sat in the
last seat at the rear, with her back to
the front of the car, her companion,
Miss Mayer, beside her. Presently her
i father came down the aisle and'stopped.
"I was beginning to wonder where
j the men were," said Ethel, as she laid
J her hand affectionately on her father's
■ arm. "I felt quite neglected. Are we
I waiting on a switch?"
"There has been a little accident, my
dear," said her father. "We're not on
"Accident, papa! Who is hurt?"
"The motorman. But not seriously.
Jim says it is a scalp wound and a
broken collar bone. He's got him all
bandaged up nicely, and as soon as he
gets over the effects of the —the shock
he'll be in very fair shape."
"Is Jim — Mr. Protheroe —a surgeon,

planned a hazaidous trip to the Bad

have a surgeon doctor along, so Jim
volunteered and took a six months'
course in the rudiments.
Ethel looked out of the window.
"Where are we, papa?"
"About ten miles from nowhere, '

"It seems so," he said. "It's another

car and joined the two Eastern college
men, who were standing not far away.
Ethel raised the window and looked
out. As she did so she caught sight of
Jim. Hatless, coat less and vestless, his
thick hair wildly tumbled and his face
smudged with dirt, he was facing her
"Waiting for orders, sir," he said,
with a comical pull at his hair.

with a quizzical smile that called a
swift blush to her cheek.

Death of General Washington.
One hundred years ago the spirit of |
the immortal Washington took leave of j
this world. Although he had nearly
completed his sixty-eighth year of life,
every indication promised him yet many
years more in which to enjoy the re
spect and affection of his grateful coun
trymen. Nature had endowed him with
a superb physique and sound constitu
tion. In his prime he stood six feet and
one inch in hight, weighed from 210 to
2-0 pounds, and possessed the agility of
a- panther and the strength of a lion.
; Temperate diet, outdoor exercise, and,
i labor, and regularity of habit had de
veloped and preserved his physical pow
ers to a remarkable degree. They had
never been impaired to the slightest ex
tent by any vicious habit. No vice had
ever been able to fix its gnawing tooth
upon the fiber of his Inflexible charac
ter. He had therefore come nearly to \
the allotted "three score years and ten"
erect of form, with the glow of health
upon his cheeks, with natural force un
abated and eye undimmed.
That fateful Friday morning after
breakfast Washington went out to
make some improvements in front of
his home. A drizzling rain turned first
to sleet and then to snow. He there
fore took up some indoor task until
dinner was called. At about 2 o'clock
in the afternoon he complained of chilli
ness and nausea, but continued his la
bor. In the evening he came to the
supper table as usual, but only drank a
cup of tea.
After supper he retired to his library
with Colonel Tobias Lear, his Private
Secretary and Superintendent of his
private affairs. "They remained to
gether until near midnight, during
which time the soreness in his throat
and his hoarseness grew worse. To a
suggestion of Colonel Lear he replied,
"No; you know I never take anything
for a cold; let it go as it came." When

!he retired to his bedroom his wife up
braided him for remaining up so late,
especially when he was not well. He
returned 4his memorable reply: "I
came as soon as my business was ac
complished. You know that through a
long life" it has been my unvaried rule
never to put off till to-morrow the du
ties which should be performed to-day."
He went to bed, not to sleep, but to
spend the remainder of the night in
feverish restlessness. His wife wanted
to call the servants and send for a doc
tor, but he would not consent lest she
herself should take cold; neither would
he permit the rest of any one to be dis
turbed till morning. When daylight
came a messenger was sent in haste for
Dr. Craik. Meanwhile the overseer was
called in, who opened a vein and let
out a small quantity of blood. But this
brought the sufferer no relief. Dr.
Craik soon arrived and Drs. Dick of
Alexandria and Brown of Port Tobacco
were called in consultation. All day the
struggle continued, but in spite of all
that could be done the disease steadily
gained upon its victim. Before the
sun went down all hope had gone.
Washington, though in great pain, ut
tered no word of complaint, but en
dured with patience the sufferings tl at
were to be unto death.
Owing to the swollen and inflamed
condition of his throat, any effort to
speak was attended with great i-ain,

make himself understood. He there

he did utter were listened to eagerly,
and were treasured up in the grateful
memories of those to whom they were
spoken. One of his old servants, while
gently smoothing out his pillow, asked
him some question, to which he replied,
"I am very ill." To Dr. Craik he said,
"I am dying, sir; but I am not afraid
to die." He was the most self possess
ed person in the room. Frequently he
expressed regret that he should be the
cause of trouble and anxiety to others.
His mind was perfectly clear and he
knew that the end was at hand. He
called his wife to him and told her to
go to his desk, look in his private
drawer, and bring him two papers she
would find there. He looked them over,
and then handed them back to her,
saying. "These are my wills; preserve
tS-is one and burn the other." Then,
speaking to Colonel Lear, he said, "At
length I am going. Have me decently
buried, and do not let my body be put
in the vault in less than three days af
ter I am dead." He was evidently keep
ing close watch upon the sands of his
life. He was seen to feel for his pulse.
Then he asked what time it was. Be
ing told that it was some minutes after
10 o'clock he composed his body at
length, folded his hands over his bos
om, closed his eyes, and fell asleep 1
never to awake.
The following Wednesday noon was
fixed as the time for the funeral. Ex
tensive preparations were made for the
solemn event. Military and civic so
cieties arranged to participate in the
obsequies. The sad day soon came, but
the hour was postponed until 3 o'clock,
awaiting the arrival of the military or
ganization of Alexandria. The coffin,
w"Meh was made in Alexandria, was of
mahogany, lined with lead, and cover
ed within and without with black vel
vet. On the lid at the head was a elate
on which was inscribed:
