Millinery Is more and moro odd and boau
tifutnsthe season advances Brand brimmed
hats seem to prevail until to tee tho unique

and fascinating with their odd little shapes
and colors When even the determined mind
hesitates which to choosn Mignonette
finely sprinkled with Jet is largely used pop
ples aie aso seen Tho hats are mado of
combinations ot straw And laco and a hat
commenced in Iaco will perhaps end with a
straw edge and feathers and flowers velvet
and laco all mingled in confused beaut
Chip hols flat In shape come In all colors
and gilt spangles are tmeverj thing The
hats are bent in all sorts of shapes to suit the
wearer The Princess Nicotine shape Isvery
popular and each lady soaring It Imagines
she looks qulto as fascinating In It as Vrln
cess Nicotine herself The sailor hat la also
used tlits year but the brim varies from last
seas ti by turning up slightly on the edge
Fancy colored aigrette of green stems are
used considerably as a trimming for Iheso
hats nearly all the straw hats come In two
colors The walking bat Is again In vogue
and as It 14 now trimmed la a thing of elo
ganco and beauty The crown Is rather tall
with a curling brim Chip in both black and
whlto is brought forth for tho first time in
many ecasona Streamers are > n many o
the new hats but I do not think they will
last long as they have a tendency to make
most ladles look older Tho jet bonnet still
holds its own and Is as small as the round
hat Is large Jet tiaras combined w itli velvet
in becoming colors aro much lu favor Tho
hair still fctntlnucs to bo waved and the
knots grow smaller and smaller but the
wacd hair If neatly done is bound to make
even a plain face look attractive and half
the nocalled beautiful women would bo
really ordinary looking wero It not tor tho
exquisite tasto Jlsplayud In dressing tho

sway Cowslips are among the favorites and
on black hats they aro particularly becoming
Black roses and violets with a dash of Jot aro
novelties that are l eautJful although not In

the most beautiful trimmings Btrass buck

was not until she had fairly earned the tttlo

verses in the local paper that her acquaint

literary predilections were uherlted from her
father who was an author linguist scientist
and lawjer While stilt a mere girl Misa
Sevmou was cast on her own resources and

About this time Miss Sej moor tookupthi

Taking up the pai > er the other day my eye
tell upon tho name of a famous slngvr vho Is
at preseut creating a furors tn the world ot
music There was the description of her
great triumphs her gorgeous gowns her
wonderful gifts from crowned heads and all
the othor details c a career honored aud
UmouB That was how tho world knew her
but I rmeinbrd the tlmo away back n tit
jeers betore she hadossuuuil the prttty high
sounding oom M theatre and with my pl n
ant thoughts for companjtbeps per dropped
to tho floor and I put no self up to n jrle
Ah how plainly could I mo her a little dark
eyed child n poor motherless tittle waif from
tho poorhouse who helped at Urn old farm
house In iho hlUs during the summer sen sou
when taking hoarders was tb means of In
creasing tho limited Inoomo that aocrued
from tho picturesque but unprofitable mead
ow land that surrounded tho rambling frame
house I wdm n delicate child and had been
sent by my father a ihjslHan to tills qulit
nest to gain health and strength What a
lonely little creature 1 was and how well I
remember that tlrrt night nil alone In the tiny
room that was set apart for my use during
tho time t was to remain How the katydids
chirped away in doleful chorus and tlio frogs
down In the swamp cnchuKged n mournful
refrain until I hid my head In Iho latender
scented pillows and erled as only a child eau
who Is separated from its mothtr for tho
first time
Next morning I was not much happier
though the sunlight did make things took a
bit more cheerful than they had appeared In
that queer half light that settlesoer tho land
When the birds go to rest and the owls come
out from their retreats I was too clumsy
with my dress I couldnt fasten tho long line
ot buttons and buttonholes that adorned my
Qabrlelle in the back and when I came to
tbo tangles tn my hulr my unnvQUstomod
hands made matters ten times wnree so that
when at Ul I appeared In the dining room
I know that I must hare presented a very
sorry spectacle tu the grim old man who was
the only other buode as I learned after
Dear mo how he glared at me orer his
spectacles and how gruff his toioe sounded
when ho asked uie to pan the bread and
despite tho kindly efforts ot tho motherly
former wife my bnsiktaat was a meagre
one so entirety consumed was I with tear
and homesickness When I had asked to l o
excused I took my doll and went out under
great tree trying to kilt that awful totting of
loneliness that would creep o riae
At laht my grief ouroamo mo and two big
tears trickled down on to Birbroniaa waxen
fuee anlln eilUhto anguish ot mind and
body I flung rajaelt down deep into the long
dewladen grass and erled as though my hoatt
would break Buddenly a burst of mrtslo
broko upon the summer air a pure swoet
