• Hats of silk banded wi'arrow
chenille braid are very stylish ani
come in all the leading shapes. They
may be trimmed as suits the fancy.
Hats are in all shades of velvet.
All have the low-trimmed effect and
either come down well over the fore
head or turn slightly off the face.
They are tucked, gathered or corded
and usually are trimmed with plain

feathers or breasts of some kind.

Unto the Hour.
God broke our years to hours and days,
Hour by hour.

We might be able all along
To keep quite strong.
Should all the weight of life
Be laid across our shoulders, and the ito
With woe and struggle, meet us face M
At Just one place,
We could not go;
Our feet would stop and so
God lays a little on us every day,
And never. I believe, on all the way
Will burdens bear so deep,
Or pathways lie so steep,
But we can go, if by God's power,
We only bear the burden of the hour.

-Grace Duffield Goodwin. in S. S. Times.
In the Night.
I heard the footfall of the hall;
The armies of the sky
Were coming down amid the gale,
a And rank on rank marched by,
I heard the thunder's cannonade,
The beating of his drum;
I s.aw the lightning's flashing blade
The hosts of heaven had come!
The mighty legions crossed the roofs
t And stormed the distant hill;
Faint grew the sound of tramping hoofs,
eAnd lo! then all was still.
t At morn I saw dead crimson leaves
For o'er the wide world tossed;
And now the lonely Autumn grives
a For all that she has lost.

9 ly Sweetheart.
aI have a charming sweetheart,
e IWith eyes of Heaven's own blue,
I love him very dearly,
And so I'm sure would you.
His form is short and pudgy.
And yet he just suits me,
For he is kind and loving.
As all sweethearts should be.
I do not seek for knowledge
Of what he can bestow,
I know he loves me truly,
And that's all I want to know.
I And now about my sweetheart,
I'11 tell you this much more,
He is our little grandson,
And his age is only four.

A Kind Old World.
"It's a sad old world." hie said,
When he and trouble met,
But brightly. overhead,
The sun was shining yet:
"It's a sad old world." he cried;
Yet all around him there
at Were men puffed up with pride
And children free from care.
"It's a kind old world." he said,
When fortune came his way;
A little child lay dead
Across the street that day;
is "It's a glad old world." he sang,
A good old world!" and high
pC Above his singing rang
A mother's hopeless cry.

ar I may not wear a purple gown,
Nor royal signet ring.
ng Nor deck my person with a crown,
of ~ecause I'm not a king.
I may not hear my fellow men

No matter where I go. or when,
Because I'm not a king.
But I. forsooth, may walk about
And have my careles fling.
