Is there a lady in the land
That boasts her rank and a' that?
With scornful eye we pass her by,
And little care tor a' that;
For Nature's charm shall bear the paln I
A girl's a girl for a' that.
What though her nm ek with gems she deck,
With folly's gear and a' that,
And gaily ride in ponp and pride; 1
We cal dispense with a' that;
An honest heart acts no much part
A girl's a girl for a' that.
The nobly born may proudly scorn
A lowly lass and a' that, t
A pretty face has far more grace
'Than haughty looks andi a' that;
A bonny maid needs no such aid
A girl's a girl for a' that.
And let us trust that coin it must,
And sure it will for a' that,
W hen faith and love, all arts above,
Shall reign supreine and a' that,
And every youth confess the truth
A girl's a girl for n' that.
THE TnIT6 L)ViE TEST.

wicked, in my innocent cocietry with I
Leigh Lake. I say innocent because I I
had imagined it sport to him as well as
to myself. Ho had the reputation of I
being not only the handsomest man in
his regiment, but the greatest flirt, and I
1 laughed when he had beei presented I
to me, and said to myself, "It should
in this case be diamond cut diamond." I
Somehow my eyes had fallen under I
his first admiring glance, but I fortilied -
myself With the thought: t
"So he always looks. It is the first
move In his attack."
I met glance with glance. smile with
smile, and pretty speech with saucy re
tort, or sentimental repartee, according
as one or the other could be delivered I
with more telling effect.
"Are you sincere?" lie questioned, t
one evening. "Answer ie frankly. If c
you are inot, tell inc so now."
"In other words," I answered, "throw
down my weapons, acknowledge ily un- t
armed condition, and smilingly invite
you to advance to victory."
"No," lie said. "At your hands I
prefer defeat. Yout acknowledge, how
ever, that you hold weapons-in other
words, that you wear a mask."
"No," I replied, "I wear no mask.
I carry no weapon. Be merciful, Co
He grew pale, and opened his l!ps as
if to speak, then hastily rising, and
making a brief adien, lie left ine.
For the lint. time I was a little

But I had no opportunity to carry

into lisa eyes, 11e wrung my LIngers an

lie added soniething in a voice so low

A moment later I caught sight of his

lid this was what the Colonel had con
ded to iiiy husband.
Still, spite of all, I was glad to be
ore. Away from Roger I should have
iukeiie(l of suspeiise. Now I. was by
is side to meet and know the worst.
"Why are not you and Lake better
riends?" lie said to me one day. "I
annot understand it."
INor could I explain, now that I kept

I clung to Roger in my wild joy at see

"You are alive-you are alivel" I
said over and over.
"Yes," he aiiswered, "but at what a

lie sprang from his horse then, and
ledl me to the litter in the rear. The
white, dead face of Colonel Lakelooked

"We have killed him, Be-you and
I," my husband said "Ile was the
noblest man that ever lived."'
And then lie told me all the story.

the command, wheli he suddenly had
been surrounded by the foe. Fight
desperately as he would, lie would soon
have boon overpowered, but that the
colonel iad seen his danger.
Spurring his horse ahead of his men,
he had flown to his rescue, charging
down in the very midst of a shower of

my husband continued. "1 thought
we were both unhurt, almost miracu
lously so. We were beating a retreat
to our command, when one of tie wily
savages launched his tomaiahiawk at my
breast. The Colonel saw it glittering
in the air, and throwing himself before
tme caught the blow. The next minute
we were in safety, but safety gained
too late. 'Don't regret i4.1 tie tani,

Ask her to forgive i those rash words
-I never meant t1eni-and let her fu
ture happiness buy my atonement.'"
I have beeli Roger's wife many happy
years now. lie was too noble to re
proach me, though I told him 11; but
through my happiness mingles ever my
heart's self-reproach, and the wonder
if, at the judgment bar of God, Gaiis

Only Women with handsome forlms
shotM. venture to wear large pattern
fabrics -in s the tell-tale Jerseys, a style
of dress extremely trying even to figur
es syminotrioally proportioned, and yet
bad taste will pull the classical-looking
Jersey-a real)y convenient garment
over forms conspletuous in avoirdupois,
presenting a "stu l'ed out"expression
that is anything but admirable ; and
the bony, lean figures, with protruding
shoulder blades, flat chest, and other
wise ugly, will also don the Jersey, and
Ilogarth's line of beaidy become&ui
visible. Fashion favdrs close-fitting
sleeves and scant skirts, modes that
faithfully expose the figure, and when
oneo can look anl admire, good taste
governs, but Lot) ofto this style of
dress suggests ridiculous comparisons
and the result is derision. On a round,
shapely arm, "skin tight" sleeves are
not objectionable, and particularly
wheni the plinp shoulers gracefully
taler, and from the elbow to the wrist
a gradual sloping is observed, But who
can admire the arms "by a large majori
ty"' that tight sleeves now exhibit?
Arms exposed that show combative
strength are far from pretty, It is all
very well for a huly to be strong, but
somehiw a powerfully built arm does
not seem exactly fenminine. Shirts
drawn closely over the hips should
not be patronized in the extreme by
every hldy. Thore are forms of sculli
ture-like beauty, and on such "pull
backs'" are adiiissiblo, although when
worn to excess this whim of fashion is
not commendable; and particularly is
this style of dress to be avoided by short
and very stout ladies, who should ever
study to conceal forin, instead of giving
prominence to it. Theso figures look
better in drapery disposed In snall, rip
plimg folds giving narrowness to width
and thereby adding to height, and then
tie too great plumpness of the figure is
admirably obscured. Of late fashion
favors pointed waists and "baby"
waists, styles that are extremely trying
to sone ladies. Pointed bodices are
only becoming to those who possess per
feCt formis--4h length oU waist, size of
bust, and hips must all be of the '"hap
py medium" moulding-mid the "baby '
waist is only becoming to flat-chested
figures, since this style of dress adds
too much to the well-developed.
. There is much to be said respecting
every department of dress and the tp
propriateness of the various modes,
colors, and shades to.. tie majority of
women. Those blesied with perfect
fornis and lovely faces can wear what
ever they please; it's all the same; their
beauty overshadows all dress (lefects;
it is, indeed, a power. "All orators
are dumb when beauty lileadeth."
Since the present fashions are so rich
with color and elegance and artistic (e
corations, It behooves ,he plain-looking
and those Who are not exactly perfect
in form to make a study of appropriate
ness in dress, and also give their atten
I ion to the nice distinctions found in
color blendings and the effeet of shades
upon the complexion. And above all,
have a care that the conspicuous dress
decorations are really becoming, before
accepted. Fichus on narrow shoulders
are not in good taste. Poke bonnets
on very large or very small heads have
a detriniental effect, even to a pretty
face. Shoulder calms are pretty throw i
over tall and well proportioned figures.
Extremely short walking costumes are
only becoming to the low in stature,

lie allied hiimself with three iotorious
robbers in Cimicago, and was known to
th Westerii detectives as Razor Joe,
ifrom th! fact that he always cairied
one of those deadly instruiients, and
was exceedingly free in the use of it.
SH1is associates were Rleddy leesley and
