Soft approaebes-Ay 3etreats.

RiddeaIr your pretty hair!
When didst learn a heart to win?

"Oh," the rosy lips reply,
"I can't tell you Ir I try;
11is so long I can't remember;
Ask some younger lass than I!"
Tell, 0, tell me, grizzled face,
Do your heart and head keep pace?
When does boary love expire?
:hen do frosts put out the fire?
Can its embers burn below
A1U that chill December snow?
Love you still soft hands to press,
Bonur heads to smooth and bless?
When does love give up the chasc?
Tell, 0, tell me, grizzled face!
"Ab!" the wise old lips reply,
"Youth may pass and strength may die;
But of love I can't foretoken;
Ask some older sage than I"

UMBRELLAS AT A DISCOUNT.
Wherefore take an u&brella my fair
lady when your new Summer hat will
spread out in a radius almost as.
extended ? Certainly if you do carry
one, it is needed not so much to sbel
ter yourself as that bit of feminine
vanity which you will wear some
times on the top of your head; some
times falling baek like the hats of a
pictured saint; sometimes having the ce
broad brim turned this way, that ch
way and every other- imaginable an
way. Since formidable in size as the SU
winter bats have been, those of the
summer will be still more so The
picturesqueness too, of wide felts and
feathers will now be from the nature
of things, excelled by that of straws
and flowers. But pray remember
that I am now addressing my more h
youthful friends; not the very youth- m
ful exclusively, but those whose faces
are still in a first freshness. Where
traces of Time appear. while yet some- ha
thing fanciful is wished for, the poke -
comes in acceptably and now seems to
rise higher and higher. -Within you
can wear your hair in an ecstasy of
aesthetic fluffiness if you wish, for with t*
the broad brimmed hats and the he
pokes, these remarkable froni pieces
are often seen. For the large class of h
ladies who desire something unobtr.
sive, we find all manner of moderate an
sized shapes both in hats and bonnets 'h
while in the latter an important po. ot
sition is assigned the little capotes b
which really seem as if they never
would go out of fashion. In milli- b
nery of all kinds, the
are very noticeable. Wide, narrow
brimmed, all-are constantly dyed in
in some new shade-hiely red, di
green, olive or. bronze, with some
thing of garnet, while of "yallery" p]
there is no end. Not yellow, if we fc
except the Leghorns,- but yellowish; at
many of them looking as if they had -m
been hung out on a pole all winter in h
some cornfield and were now gathered je
In for our belles to wear. 'Tis Mr. d
Oscar Wilde and his colleagues who
have done all this: (these shades are Ii
dear to aesthetic hearts) they it is d
who have brought about the remark
able prominence of green, and 'tis to cq
them that we owe the existence of h
red hats in summer not to say the ,
immensely picturesque possibilities of si

right angle on the right sort of a young~ n:
lady's head at the right time and
place and with the right kind of a la
costume. I can only say to mason- o,
lines of all descriptions-"Beware." a1
As a hint to my lady friends, will
remark, that I have so often repeated
the adjective "right," because if a tz
mistake should be made and the
wrong sort of beauty should wear one
at the wrong time, what a terrible v
wrong it would be. Aesthetic colors j

is batiste in plain colors-chiefly some
delicate shade, having a wide border ~
of embroidery on one side of the i
breadth and a narrower one for the
corsage and sleeves. This idea of
embroidery extends to fine wools k
where lovely outfits will show em
broidery of silk; usually self colored
but sometimes in cov trasts. Further
more as this embroidery though fine
is done by machine, it will not be 2
very expensive. s
Among the remarkable discoveries

as those made by our best physicians. t
There is scarce any disease that may

nally this invaluable agency, may be ~
seen in the "Wilsonia" magnetic corset
manufactured by- Thomson, Langdon

cures have' been effected, especialfy
in cases of nervous prostration and
general debility, since the current

is retained, thus converting such
currents into a reservoir of magnetism
F which must result in elasticity of
Lmuscle and general invigoration of the
