A very quaint fashion is the revival
of the paletot, it being most popular
in black taffeta,. It makes a pretty,

much beruched and trimmed.
There is such a lot in color, and few

it. Black is either very becoming or
quite the reverse, though on the
whole it ia smart, especially for even

mh l ite Lak of OIL
A brilliant display of snooting stars
occurred at Tulsa, Ind. T., the other
morning, lasting from four o'clock
until dayiight. Several meteors fell
into a lake of oil, one of a number
formed near Tulsa by recent strikes
of gushers, and the fluid waa ignited,
burning all day. The shooting stars
were in great number and traveled in
almost every direction. It was al
most as light as day while the show
er lasted. Occasionally a meteor
would explode and send out hundreds
of fire balls, which would illumine the
sky and die out almost instantly.
Each explosion was accompanied with
a distinctly audible report.
