NOW BOERS PITC1I THEIR LAAGERS,
Always Put Tents Between Parallel Line
A. C. Hales, the Australian corre
spondent who was captured by thi
Boers and released by President Steyn
writing from Burghersdorp, says:
"Possibly it may Interest Englisl
men ad women, too. for that matter
to know what a fighting ladger is Lke
and, as I have seen half a dozen 0:
them from the eneny's side of thi
wall, a rcugh pen sketch may not bi
amiss. In war times the Boer neve:
under any circutstan:ces makes hi!
laager in the open country if then
are any kopjes aboui. No matter hou
secure he may fancy himself from at
tack, no matter if there is not a fo(
within 1ifty miles of him, the Boeo
commander always pitches his laag
in a place of safety between two pa,
allel lir.es of hills, so thal an attac!
cannot be made upn him, c!:her fron
or rear, without Ihing hin an M
mense advantage over tle attachinl
force, even if the eneiv is ten tines
as strong in numbers. By this mean
the Boers make their laagers almos1
impregnable. If they .ave a choice ol
ground they pick a ni.:row ravine 01
gully, with a line of hills fiont anc
rear, covered with small. roek3
howlders and bushes. They dy'.ve thei]
wagons in between thiese hills.
"The wom'en are placed In safety
for it is a noticeable fact that very
large numbers of women have follow
ed their husbands and brothers to thi

sex themselves. nor'to handle the rile

the side of men in the mounlight, bu1
not in wantonness, but in merey. and
many a man who wears the Britisl

that I speak the truth.
"The foot scouts take up their posi

No matter how tired he may be, nt

ONE WOMAN'S PROFESSION.
She Earns a Comfortable Income Arrang
ing Bridal Finery.
Miss Eleanor Burvell is a young
woman who dresses brides. That is
,he way she makes her living, and a
very good living at that. The other
dav- a friend of mine was married, and
!ono morning, about two weeks before
the eventful day, a card was sent up I
to her, and I went down to see the I
caller, a Miss Burwell, whose name
neither of us had ever heard before.
Shs, explained her business and my
friend engaged her.
Early on the morning of the wed
ding Miss Burwell appeared with her'
assistant. The entire trousseau, and,
I might say, the bride herself, was
turned over to her. She first investi
gated the wedding outfit anu saw that
everything was as it should be. She
insisted on the bride's remaining
quietly in bed untit 10 o'clock, the
wedding not being until 5 o'clock in
the afternoo:i. Then she had her out
and tried on the wedding dress, gloves
and slippers. Some alterations, only
a few stitches, were necessary, and
she took them. Next she turned her
attention to packing the trunks, and
in 1-3s than two hours the task was
accomplished and a little book con
taining a complete inventory was put
in the bride's traveling bag. Thisin
veutory gave not only the list of
articles, but told exactly where the;
could be found. By this time the
bride had finished her luncheon and
was persuaded to take a nap and re
main in bed until called by Mis Bur
well, who, with her assistant, left the
Louse, to appear again promptly at
Then a tepid bath was prepared;
the bride awakened, and while sho
was taking it they straightened up the
oom and laid out the bridal costume.
The dressing of the bride was accom
plished without the slightest hurry
and in ample time. But best of all
was the fresh, rosy face that was seen
through the bridal veil. It was so
different from the haggard, nervous
girl we had all expected. She was
ot a bit tired or worried, and, feel
,n that she was looking her very
best, womanlike, she was supremely
contented. Miss Burwell accompanied
ter to , the church door, guarded
I gvinst soiling her gown in the car
Iiage and gave the final touch to her
veil and train as she entered.
After the ceremony she returned to
the house, superintended the ex
bange of the bridal for the going
avray gown, gave the inal arrange

A Pretty Bodice Novelty.
There is a new note in the bodices
of fashionable gowns these days, and
although one that would have seemed
*incongruous to our grandmothere, it

Sshirts instead of the Roman silks and
iflosses that have been familiar so
lonig. One distinctive usage is seen
- 'in bodices of a black satin or liberty
silk, made over white linings. If it
eis arranged with tucks-either bias or
straight, the interspaces are decorated
,with a working of the double zephyr.
The decoration never represents
flowers, leaves or similar designs.
Usually it is worked in a c-at stitch
and, as an added touch, when the
neeale points out of each side of the
g-oods the zephyr is thrown about it
several times and fastened so as to
form a French knot. The dress goods
under the worsted is then cut away
and allows the underlining to show
through only slightly as the catstitch

an adaptability in designing is all that
It is also feasible to till in many
sharp little corners on gowns with a
fan-shaped bit, the stitches being
long and graduated. A-rain the old
Romaan block design is used on straps
to cross over the vests of bodices. By

a tention was paid to what is new in

one about worsted are called, than to
the excellence of the quality of the

New fashions often create new ne-1
cessities, and the train skirt is new to'
many of the younger women. They L
End it difficult to manage, and accuse
themselves bitterly of awkwardness
when they find themselves entangled F
in its clinging folds. In point of fact,
the mere phrtse "manage the train"
definitely conveys the idea of difficulty,
and since trains first were worn novel- A
ists have laid stress upon their hero
ines' grace in managing them,and the
atrical critics comment upon it in like :
The novice in train gowns, there
fore, does not need to feel badly over
her deficiency, but simply apply Ler
self to remove it. It is not weakness
and affectation to try to acquire grace
of movement. It is duty.

the skirts lightly in one hrFd, bend j
one knee, and so slide down into the

the draperies, with an impercepti)le 1

folds almost into a semicircle. In ris- e
ing catch the skirts in the same way,
and with a daxterous twist of the
wrist and slight backward movement
of the foot spread the train in its fi
proper fan shape. It is difficult to de
scribe, but a little practice will accom- h

"There's such a thing as being too

"It's really a misfortune to have the C

scrubbing, is almost sure to be imposed ti

to do everything that they are likely

the mother who would not teach her

it to do.
