"AN ANCIENT HEBREW INSCRIPTION.
Prof. Sayce, in a recent lecture at Oxford
told a little story concerning the Hebrew
inscription just discovered at Jerusalem. A
boy was the fortunate finder. He fell into
the Pool of Siloam, and when ho rose to
the surface was not too much absorbed in
thethoutrht of saving himsolf to miss the
tight of some characters cut in the side of
the rock tunnel. On getting out ho men
tioned what he had seen, and tho result
has been tha discovery and the partial do
ciphering of what is believed to bo the
most ancient Hebrew inscription known."

The theme may be hackneyed, but it
wems to me there it still not enough atten

where tho little feet of

at work. The present generation has

make up the ranks of rulers and ruled."

WATERING PLACE NOVELTIES.
An extremely fashionable lady now prides
herself on nothing more than a pair of tan
colored gloves of kid or chamois skin that
she wears in a mass ot wrinkles akvo her
wrist. This is the badge, tho sign and sytn
bol of veritable "style," and she who bears
it looks complacently on herself and dis
dainfully on surrounding existences. It
allowed to follow its destiny, that stretch of
kid or guitBkin ought to reach from half to
all the way up to the elbow, being made
without buttons or porlaps only a few at
tho wrist. Thither, however, it must never
bo allowed to go, but must crumple and
wrinklo as previously described. Not only
is this fashion adopted when costumes o?
silk or wool aro worn, but in case of thin
muslins or even white satin. Yet the groater
number of ladies aro content with a kid
fglovo worn in a moro conservative way, or
with tho lisle thread, silk or lace mitts, of
which there are no end in the market. But
tan is certainly tho color of the hour, ling
preferrod to shades corresponding with tho
dress and influencing all the lighter sum
mer substitutes lor kid. Still there aro
other stylish hues wora oven by extremists,
and these aro gold, golden brown, gray or
black. Both gloves and mitts of high and
low degree are long on the wrist, and there
is much less open work than formerly,
TWO SCHOOLS IS SLEEVES.
Two schools in sleeves, as wide apart as
homofpathy and alipathy, now prevail. The
gigot or bishop sleeve is the head and front
of a new rebellion, this being fol
lowed at respectful distance by
sleeves imbued with similar ideas,
but of modest outline. The gigot, however,
comes boldly out and Bhows the veritable
balloon tops of olden timo with cuff shaped
into the arm. Unlike tho leg of mutton,
however, it is cut all in one; tho puff at the
top king pUt on sepcrately. Sleeves of
lesser note are crowned with smaller puffs
while at times we see two puffs divided by
rows of shirring. Meantime the close coat
sleeve holds its own, and thereby no small
advantage to the public at largo accrues.
An arm too thin can hide securely under
those friendly puffings and show to tho
world as if it were the plumpest,; and she
who freJi no scrutiny can wear a sleevo
that follows nature's fair proportions. Each
one dors well and each one is stylish.
FASHIONS rOU THE THIN.
But if a thin arm can be made to nass.
wherefore not the individual? This perti
nent question can be answered in tho af
firmative, and a result so satisfactory is
brought about by tho aid oi' shirrings. This
the more so, because they are a veritable
rage. You cannot misplace them. Tut
them about the neck on tho front, on tho
back, around tho waist, on the sleevo f
your corsage and you commit no ci;jr.
Have your skirt shirred from end to end;
you touch tho extremist's limits, but you
do not overstep them. Even the hat and
parasol may be shirred a pretty example of
such an outfit, being one prepared of cream
white mull for Emma Abbott, who is spend
ing the punmier hero. Another tasteful
costunio showing similar ideas has been
gotten up for the same well-known Binger.
It iu of silk and wool; a combination of
pale blue and golden brown and is made
Anrelic waist in surplico style with shir
red belt and sanh ; sleeves with two puffs
and shirring between. Theoverskirt after
the Carita model shows the front, arranged
with a shirred apron, draped highly in the
middle and falling in points at the sides.
Close akin to shirrings, come puffings.
These because a more pronounced
type are used with some caution; you can
not cover your whole outfit with puffs, but
they are very popular. For the bottom oi
the skirt, nothing is better liked than a
puff; one or nice pufl around the neck are
quite the thing while a jiuu"" at the writi
sometimes supersedes a cuff. But ruffles
may come in to complete the magnifying
process; puffs can be united with shirrs, till,
if need be, one can become a perambula
ting mass of shirrs, puffs and ru files to
which plaitings can be superadded. Let
me atone at the eleventh hour, however,
for a seeming neglect of my stouter consti
tuents. For them, tho Barouno nalonaise
would be a tasteful choice; being close on
the hips, falling in u tliuwl shaped point at
the left and draped high on the Bides. In
conclusion I scarce feel that
