A Juvenile Horse Thief.
White Hall, III., July 28. Sunday
afternoon a horse belonging to Wm. Ballard
was stolen while the owner was in town.
John Ellis and C. Carman got on the trail
and captured the horse and thief near Graf
ton yesterday about 2 a. in. The thief
proved to be a boy aged . about 1 3 years, a
son of Chesley Neeley, who resides west of
From our regular correapondeut.
Without instituting a philosphical in
quiry as to whether "shadings" have brought
about moire designs or rice versa, the fact
is patent that they have arisen to life; bud
ding full fiuition by fall and winter. The
connection between the two is almost in
structive since where cau lights aud sha
dows play more perfectly than in ripples,
which simulate the glancing of sunshine
on the waterJ Yet withal there is a striv
ing after those lines and columns that are
so marked a feature of the day for the new
moiro patterns do not spread themselves
over the breadth as formerly, but of smaller
compaaa, ascend in regular rows; being
connected often by narrower lines of di
minutive wavelets ; throughout meanwhile
being deftly mingled, poetic alternations of
deeper or paler lines. Again, we see co
nvngliugs of marked contrasts, such as red
with blue; gold with bronze, etc., and
these run into each other with a c harm in
creased by reason of perpetual vaguelcss.
Combinations of plain material continue to
fipd favor as for example iu a costume of
blue ruoiro worn recently by Mrs. Bell
(tormerly Jeanotte Bennet), where a dark
shade of satin was used to oSset pale blue
moire. The skirt was of satin, with two
kilt plaitings; the close basque was of
moire, finished with a deep scarf of ihe
same draped at tho back. For
LIGHTER Bt'MMER COSTUMES. .
Spanish lace is the rage. Elegant polo
naises of Spanish lace are worn over sum
mer satins and lace bodicas serve to com
plete a toilette, where the skirt ia covered
with rich falling flounces; it is placed ad
libitum on corsages aud , gives finish to not
a few pretty fancies for tho neck aud shoul
ders. China crape is iu vogue for coRtly
dresses, and the most unixuo of these ate
curiously embroidered in pagodas, birds,
butterflies aud Chinese flowers. Over
dresses of this stylo arc sometimes draped
upou satin skirts; a toilette worn
by Mrs, Lorillard, being a combination
of cream colored crape wrought in pale
pink chrysanthemums with blue satin
UNIQUE MOHMNO OHLSHE3
should a war come suddenly upou tin, our
soldiers might be compelled to go tentlcss
to the field hecauso tnidiionable henutirs
havo so largely appropriated the supply of
tent cloth tlmt it has run short. It is made
up into skirts as a completion to costumes
of gray, 1rowii, green or hlu flannol and
the orthodox idea of the moment is that
ono stripe ol the tent or awning cloth shall
match tho flannel in color while the other
stripes servo as contrast. Bed ticking, too,
is held in high estimation for similar pur
poses; still mora remarkablo nkirts, or even
entire dresses being composed of the coarse
bluo cotton cloth, brought out for laboring
men's overalls. In direct contradiction to
all this, we find nothing more popular than
those solt qualities of mull for morning
dresses. ludoed, there is qulto a rage for
mull not only as made up into costumes,
but for ties, handkerchiefs, jabots, etc, as
well also asfor light shawls to bo thrown
over the shouldors. Ultra fashionables de
light in creamy mull of so decided a yellow
ss apparently to need tho good ofBtof
the washerwoman and languish during the
morning hours in draperies of such a tluge,
si under ordinary circumstances, would
shock them beyond recovery. But tha in.
dustry of these fair creatures is admirable ;
there is a demand for fancy work and
cavaliers pay their rows across yards of
knitting cotton that, if stretched out,
would bridge the Atlantic. Fortunately, it
is rolled up in balls and the uew anti-tangle
attachment is in great favor sinco it not
only prevents the thread from tangling, but
also from becoming soiled when in use.
There is no little uncertainty in the pub
lic mind concerning bustle. Fashionables
whose verdict commands respect, insist that
they are obligatory; others equally worthy
of deference, say to the con tray and wntcra
on fashion, wishing to keep fair with all
parties, hesitate between the two. A corset
that finds favor with everybody, however, is
Warner Bro's Coraline aud there is reason
for it. The shape is graceful while the
new material (Coralinc) ponsoaqpg marked
advantages "when Compared .with whale
bone. Some of theHe are that it adantJ it
self to tho movements of the wearer and is
inconsequence, much more comfortable. It
is also tougher than whalebone and will
not break on the moat trying figures. In
conclusion let me add that ia threading the
throngs brakes of watering place life, there
is no guide more safe than a handsome
parasol. It is a very ark, of refuge and
sheltered by it, you can dispense with a
hat ifneek.be; gloves ditto; or if eithur
are not quite what they ought to be, the
passer-by looks reverently at. j our parasol
and conclude of course that you have
something nice in you trunk which you
haven't cared to take out, If your continue
has not coat by several dollars what it
should Iihvc done, that parasol makes
ameud and the kind reflection riscH up.

"Professor" E. C. Bassett, of this

dents eon neeted with his experience as
a psychologist and a balloonist, but he
was never taken for "old clovenlvoof '
but once. This was- on Taloott Moun
tain, where lm was making a cup ot
"French" coffee by the road. This
was done by pouring a little brandy In
to a cup of cold coffee, and thon set
ting fire to it. While be was so em
ployed, a farmer came jogging by in
his wagon, and hauled up to see what
Bassett was up to. The latter invited
tho old man to take some colfee. Tha
brandy was still blazing, but the mora
brilliant blaze of tho noonday sun com
pletely obscured tho flame. The coun
tryman alighted, and asked for a match
with which to light his pipe.
"1 don't use matches," wns Bassett's
answer. "Soe! '
And Basset held a piece of oaner
over the cup of coffee, and it icriiited in-
stantly. He turned to hand the light
to the stranger, and saw ldm clamber
