THE LATE MRS. STEWART.

The Into Mrs. Stewart had a peculinr
abhorrence of dark colors. It has al
ready been noted that nil of tho Stewart
buildings wero of tlio purest white, nnd
sho hoi self avoided in her dress, as
much as possible, nil somber hues.
Mourning she always laid off as soonrw
conventionally permitted, and oven
during its term sho lightened its
solomnity at homo with whito negliges.
She was very fond of dress to tho last
momont of her life, and her jowols wero
superb. Her morning gowns
wero marvels of daintiness and luxury,
and of every delicate t'nt, rose, pale
blue and lavender, or whito und pearl
color, smothered in thn finest lnco. bhe
was a very protty old lady in theso
boautiful gowns, and astonishingly well
ptosorved: her skin was wonderfully
white, and kept its bloom, and though
sho was ovor eighty years hor teeth of
tho clenr, translucent, flinty sort that
will outlast a century -wcro in porfeot
condition. Her chostnut hair was
merely streaked with gray, feho had
all her faculfcs and was voiy active,
mounting stairs as nimbly us a girl.
Mrs. Stiiw.trt has beon accused of re
sorting to nrtlticial moans to givo this
impression, but that charge her friends
always warmly denied, und would ac
knowledge nothing: false except tho llt
tlo curled front ot hair that is worn by
women fifty jonrs younger than sho
and by many who have no need of it
except tho aversion to tho trouble
of curling thoir hair around tho tom

scone of any festivities, anil tho lonely
occupant raroly wont nny whoio, but

servod her for dinner. Thoro novor
was any meal called dinner In tho Stew
art houso, for tho next one, at seven
o'clock, wns known as tea, und was

How to Grease Wheels.
