The styles In boys' clothing change very
little from season to season, but this
cannot be said of the frocks of her
little ladysnip. Styles in the clothing
of little girls vary as much as in gar

the laundress to consider. Certainly
there is no garment easier to launder
than that which has the body and
sleeve cut in one. It is the fashion
now for children to wear wash dresses
throughout the year, and any feature
which renders the laundering an easy
task should be received with "open
In New York, Chicago, Philadelphia,
San Francisco and in some of the
smaller cities there are modistes who
make a specialty of designing chil
dren's garments. Their establishments
are prepared to furnish everything
needed from an infanfs layette to the
last school year frocks which are dis
carded for the debutante wardrobe.
One of these designers, whose estab
lishment is located in New York, is
widely known for the originality of her
designs. The fin illustration here
shown is of a holiday party frock she
has just designed for a little lady who
will one day come into a fortune of
many millions. It is an exquisitely
dainty little dress and one that any
mother could not fail to admire.
It was made of the finest of hand
kerchief linen, but an equally effective
development would include the use of
nainsook or batiste. There was a pan
el front to the little waist daintily
decorated with a touch of fine hand
embroidery. A row of Valenciennes
insertion was u6ed at the joining of the
panel to the side portion and this in
sertion was also used at the neck, at
the ends of the little short sleeves
and up the center of the sleeves. The
skirt of this little frock was particular
ly lovely. It was made with five short
rounded gores and this gored upper
part was lengthened by a tucked
flounce. There was a tow of the lace

other row at the top of the flounce

slip was made to be worn under the
dress and There was a sash of blue

There was a long pause, after
which the man said seriously: "Of
course. Bessie, I wish your father was
a different kind of man, but you and
I love each other, and we will not let
that come between us."
"It must," she said in low but firm
tones. "We can never Marry."
He drew a long and hopeless sigh.
He had tried persuasion with her be
fore, and he knew how firm she was.
With her there was nothing higher
than duty, and she was always ready
to make any sacrifice for its sake.
"Then nothing I can say will
change you?" he said.
"No. nothing." she replied.
They walked away, and when they
were safely out of hearing Jerry stag-

gered to his feet and stood looking in
the direction they had gone. His brain
was still dull and heavy, but he un
derstood. A long time he was silent and
thoughtful; then with a slow 8tep he
walked into.tbe deep, wild forest.
He sober now, and very
thought. For the first time in hia
life he was beginning to realize some
thing of the great cost of his weak
ness. It was night when he returned
home. He saw nothing of his daugh
ter, but he knew he was in the house.
He did not want to meet her. so he
seated himself outside near the door.
He was tired, fcr he had walked for
hours, and his heart was heavy.
A few minute passed, then Bessie
cairo-out on the porch. She looked
about her and wl en she saw Jerry she

was seen in Central park a few days
ago and attracted considerable atten
tion because of Its very effective style.
It was made of sage-green basket
i weave and trimmed with dark-green
!silk. The short coat had a charming
(little sailor collar, fashioned of silk;
! the cuffs were of the silk as well as a
wide band which finished the coat's
lower edge. The skirt was in three
! pieces. There was a panel in the back
': and two side gores the right side
gore extending well across to the left-
front, where the closing was effected
with a lapped seam.

"Must not do - hat. father?" she
"You must not sacrifice your hap

Meyers and you must rnarry him. He
can give you everything, and I God
forgive me, Bess I ? e never given
you anything but trouble. You must
marry him and be happy?"
"No. father, I cannot. It would not
be best. I you have nobody but me,
and if I were to leave you, you would
be all alone in the world. It is my
duty to stay with you."
He shook his head. "You owe me
nothing. Bess," he replied, "for I have
never done anything for you."
"You are my father," she answered.
After a while he arose and stood
looking off down the road toward ti e
woods, where the river ran. She saw
that a great change had come over
him. He was bent and his shoulders
drooped, and he seemed to have aged
many years. His face was white and
drawn, and there was a serious, trou
bled expression in his eyes.
"Father." she said, standing in
front of him. with her hand on his
arm. "what is it?" '
"Nothing." he replied, trylt . to
avoid her eyes. "Nothing at all."
"But there is something," she in
sisted. "You are troubled, and I fear
it ia about me."
"No, no, Bess. It It Is all right.

She shook her head and sighed.
"That is all ove,, father," she an

and we are never going to marry."
He walked a few steps away and
then he etopped and looked bark.

He passed on down the road. The
moon was shining brightly and she
watched him until he reached the
woods. Just before he disappeared
among the trees he turned and looked
at her a long time. Then he waved
his hand and passed out cf sight.
He crossed the forest and came to
the bankt of the river. He stood for a
moment. looking down at the water:
then be raised his eyes and glancad
ail about him.
"It la a beautiful world," ha
thought, "and anybody ought to he
happy." He drew a long sigh and
added: "But I have missed it."
He looked down at the water again.
"Poor little Bess!" he mused. "She
will grieve, for. in spite of all, she
loves me. But, through this grief
she will come into a life of happiness.
It is best that way."
The next morning Henry Meyers
found Jerry Mott's body lyltg in the 1
water at the river ford. He went on
and broke the news gently to Bessie.
They both thought there had been aa i
accident. It was just as well tni! j

A RECORD FALL.
it Was Remarkable Not For Distance,
but For Results.
Writing in 1S41 of a fall from an Im
mense altitude which did not result
in death, a French observer. M. Man
zini. declares that he had searched in
vain in the annals of science for a
similar case. We can well believe it.
The victim or patient was a tapis
sier who had been engaged in putting
up decorations on the occasion of the
belated obsequies of Napoleon the
Great in the lofty dome of the Church
of the Icvalides in Paris. When busy
moving a ladder on the top of a high
scaffolding he overbalanced himself
and. in obedience to some obscure In
stinct, jumped clear of the ladder and
the platform, crying to his fellow
workmen as only a Frenchman would,
"Behold me quit!" With these cheer
ful words on his lips he fell eighty-two
feet, bounding !n one place off the roof
of a little dome, which caused him to
describe a second parabola In the air.
and landing finally, feet first, on the
slate roof of a small sacristy.
Crashing through the slates, he land
ed astride a rafter, where be was
found sitting, surprised but coherent,
for he was able to give his name and
address when asked for them. He had
no recollection of this and became un
conscious when put to bed shortly aft
erward under the care of the great
Tasquier. Ilis insensibility lasted a
very short time, however, and he made
an extraordinary rapid recovery, hav
ing sustained no apparent injuries,
either external or internal. At the end
of a month Tasquier found him quite
well. London Lancet.
THE SQUAW'S SHAWL
It Must Be Just So te Suit Her Fas
The Indian wears his blanket on the
hottest summer days. His theory is
that if It keeps out the cold in winter
it will keep out the heat in summer,
snys Ben M. Myers of Oklahoma City.
While he might not care to buy any
thing else expensive, the price of a
suitable blanket is never questioned,
but it would be difficult indeed to de
ceive him as to the texture of any
"A squaw will imitate almost any
thing that pleases her fancy, but In
the matter of her blanket or shawl she
exhibits an unusual amount of individ
uality. With great care and patience
she designs her blanket, and when she
places the order with the mill man he
does not dare duplicate It until she has
had an opportunity to wear It.
"If she makes the request that it
6hall not be duplicated ber wishes are
regarded, because It is the one article
she possesses in which excluslveness is
much coveted and also because what
would please one 6quaw would not ap
pear at all attractive to another.
"The lightweight shawl or blanket Is
thrown over the head of the squaw,
and unless she is able to purchase a
bright colored silk kerchief It will
serve as her only bonuet as well. It is
just as common a sight now to see the
papoose securely bound on the back of
its mother by a portion of her blanket
as it used to be to see the wee bead of
the Indian babe peeping from the te
kas, or frame cradle." Washington
Confidence In the Mails.
Having sent a strong box key by
mail in an unregistered letter, a clerk
was told by his employer that the key
"arrived O. K.." but that the means of
transportation adopted showed too
much confidence. In answer the clerk
said. "Ever since a New Year's eve
incident of two years" standing my
confidence In the postoffice is great."
And pressed for an explanation he
said: "That evening, or early in the
morning rather, a man came out of a
restaurant rather the worse for cele
brating. He had a wallet in his pocket
containing considerable money and
was uncertain as to the honesty of his
companions. He went to a letter box.
forced the wallet through the slot and
continued to make a night of it. It
required considerable red tape to re
cover his property, but he got It."
