Starr und Miss Henderson a Mr, Jonen.
In a short tinin each lost their compan?
ion, and tho old spark uf love was to
kindled, uml they found themselves
once more ongagod. The day was sol for
tho marriage, and the wedding guests
were iuvitod, but again came another
quarrel, which sot luside the proposed
marriage.
Afterward Mr. Bright married a Miss
Cooper, und Mrs. Jones married Miss
Cooper's brother. Loath having again
robbed thwin of wife aud hutdnuid, tbuy

Tho Hubjoi't of luud Irrigation, which
'cas received oonsidorablo attention in
Hits west, will l>o taken up in a general
way by the people of tho southern Htatea
et u special ci ngress tlmt will meet ut
Atlanta in Ootobor fur this purpose.
Tlio congress will be composed of live
delegatos tit large from ouch of tbo
southern states, members <>f stato com?
missions of irrigation and cue delegate
each from regularly orguuized irriga?
tion, agricultural und horticultural so?
cieties, .societies of engineers, state de?
partments of agriculture, agricultural
col logos and commercial bodies in the
southern statt*.
Besides these drily accredited dele?
gates to the formers' national congress
mid road parliament, members of the
national Itourd of irrigation, members
of congress, governors of states, tho sec?
retaries of agriculture und of tho inte?
rior will bo admitted as honorary mem?

other persons interested iu tho objects
of the congress will bo invited to attond
its proceedings.
The purpose of tVio congress is to dis?
cuss methods of irrigation aud tho effect
of sneh land improvement upon south?
ern crops. It is claimed tJiat there uro
largo areas of productive land now ly
iii? in almost useless condition on uc
count of the dryness of tho soil, which
in other respects is capable of fertility.
In the same regions sro streams, swamps
and artesian wnlls that might bo modo
to supply tho defect. How this can best

There Will Be a. Chance.
It is tho opinion of the great Parisian
drcssinakorB that the spring of 1800 will
be notable in the unuuln of fashion on
account of the revival, with but slight
modifications, of the styles of gowns
which were in vogue when Louis XVI
was king of France, over u century ago.
While these makers of the luodo havo
not openly announced what they will
decree for the year hence, yet most of
them are making plans in accordance
with this idea.
The real leaders of the world's modes
are of course the famous dressmakers of
1'aris, though they beguile their rieh or
royal customers into thinking that the
dressDi;iker has littlo olso to do than to
cxeoute or amplify tho suggestions of
his patrons, while exactly tho reverse in
true. Changes in style are always ac?
complished by degrees. Every one knows
how practically impossible it would be
to compel a sudden and radical change
in costume, such as the abrupt transi?
tion from the present mode to that of
the ancient Greeks, but oven this would
be possible in tiuie if tho autocrats so
willed und threw their weighty inllu
euco iu favor of tho revolution.
A Trilby Club.
There lias recently been inaugurated
a Trilby club in Arlington, N. J., tho
result of u dream of one of tho most
charming of the young women of that
town.
Tho qualification for membership in
this dub is a left fr>ot; tho credentials,
.. picture of it. At pees out tho club has
a scare of members. Each has given tho
picture of her left foot to tho olub, and
those form tho itrt collection.
By unanimous consent tho projector
of tho olub, so lovely wits her Trilby,
wo? made president. A fear of publicity
keeps this club u sccrot organization,
but to give it itn air of dignity one mar?
ried woman has been made n Hier?ber.
These pictures are all taken by tho young
ladies and developed by ouo of their
number. Some of tho photographs have
been seen. Ono especially is u beauty of
perfect outline and has the widely sep?
arated totvs over which Littlo Billeo
raved, aud which are small, slender and
graceful. Such another Trilby, the girls
proudly declare, it would bo hard to
find, and none there has been to dis
putu this.?New York Herald.
